2022.01.27 00:00 ShelLuser42 "But he's hacking the stage!"
After introducing an irl friend of mine to Reddit he reminded me of this story during one of our synth evenings and yeah, I think this will fit.
Backstory: I'm very passionate about synthesizers and eventually got one of my own. However, because I consider myself to be more of a (sound) engineer than a musician I decided to focus on software; Digital Audio Workstations where Ableton Live suite edition ended up as the center of my home studio. When I stepped in they provided "Max for Live" as a separate add-on which I bought, and I was quite determined to learn how to use it. This is how I became very familiar with "Max"; a visual programming language fully focused on multimedia purposes.
Over the years I met someone who had started a band with a couple of his friends and we bonded over our mutual passion for synths. Let's call him "Bob" (not his real name). One evening in a local cafe Bob told me that his band was going to play in a club where they were hoping to attract some more professional attention to themselves. To that end the band had decided to purchase some new stage effects to spice up their act. Of course the obvious problem arose: what would be a good way to set those off? And when? After Bob told me that the launchers also supported the MIDI protocol I suddenly got an awesome idea: how about we put a laptop on stage, connect it to their gear and I set up a Max patch to provide some more dynamic controls? Basically giving the band control over the effects from the use of their instruments. Bob liked the idea, asked his friends about it and we "talked it over" a few days later at the same cafe. I don't think any of us remember what we ended up talking about but I was now officially on-board as the bands temporary technician for that gig 😁
Bob and me went over to the club a few days prior to the event to talk things over. The original idea was to get there before opening hours but unfortunately the club owner couldn't make it in time but he had informed his staff to give us access to the stage so that we could run a few tests. Quite an exciting experience, I can tell you that! And seeing the rather specific shape of the stage suddenly gave me an idea. We also noticed some build-in stage effects which obviously made us wonder if we would be able to use those as well? Maybe even control them!
We ended up sitting at a table, I grabbed my laptop and started adding some cosmetic changes to my Max patch. We got some free drinks and 20 or so minutes later the owner got in. The place also became busier so he gave us cards to wear around our necks because security would soon come to control access to specific locations. We went to the bar, talked some more and the owner and Bob went to an office in the back to sort out some specific details. This didn't concern me so I stayed at the bar, but did ask the owner if it was ok for me to head back onto the stage to test a few more things: as it turned out we were indeed allowed to use those other stage effects, but most bands didn't bother and just relied on the standard blinking and 'strobing'. Owner gave me a copy of the API specifications (= instructions on how you can control the effects) and I checked those while finishing my rather large beer, totally oblivious to the world around me.
A few moments later a rather "filled out" woman goes to sit at the bar. I noticed her sitting down but was way too preoccupied. Suddenly she goes off: "Ey, I'm talking to you. Give me my drink NOW!". I look up: "who, me?", and when I see she is indeed looking at me I sigh: "don't work here, wait for the bartender" which shut her up. Meanwhile I'm getting super excited because I figured out a perfect way to control those other effects!
I grab my laptop bag and fling it over my shoulder, gulp down the last part of my beer like a "pro" (at least I felt badass, probably looked nerdy as heck) and then climbed back onto the stage. "Ey you can't be up there!", the weirdo yells at me. I completely ignore her because I'm fully focused on my plan, still unsure if it would actually work. I plug in an USB hub, search for and find the cables which the owner told me about before and plug those in as well, and then I get to work trying to ignore the shouting from this weirdo who keeps yelling that I can't be up there.
Finally I get annoyed at this distractive nonsense and snap back at her that I CAN be up here while briefly holding up my card and tell her to leave me alone because I need to concentrate.
But now she's suddenly shrieking that since I did work there I should stop playing around and finally "fix her damned drink!" to which I snapped back that I'm not a bartender, wait for him. Looking over my shoulder I noticed that the bartender was actually already watching us but better yet: had also flagged security the moment they got in and the group was headed our way. I hold up my card and the guy in front nods and me and gestures that I can continue. I nod and wave thanks and get back to work. "Ma'am, I need you to calm down and leave the technician alone", to which she snaps: "But look at him you idiot, look at the screen. He's hacking the stage!".
Now sure, I did change the programs interface to mimic the shape of the stage which should make it easier for the band to see which effects were primed and which instrument(s) could be used to trigger it. But hacking the stage? I couldn't help laughing.
The guard then insists for her to stop harassing me and then she suddenly says the magic word: "Look at those lines you moron, obviously he has a bomb up there!". Suddenly there was silence, quickly followed by the whole group of other guards now forcefully dragging the woman back towards the offices. The one which was talking to her asks me to stop for a moment, he climbs on stage and apologizes but due to security protocols he's now forced to fully check what I'm doing. Well, I'm more than happy to oblige and explain to him in full detail what I'm doing, what I plan to do and also show him the documentation which the manager gave me earlier. This actually helped me out a lot because by explaining those details I suddenly got another idea to make things work.
The guard checks the stage effect which Bob brought with him, then my USB hub and apologizes again and tells me that all is fine to which I tell him that there's absolutely no need for apologies because I fully understand the issue, I'm in fact very happy that they take this as seriously as they do!
The gig was awesome, everything went according to plan. The owner, who introduced the band, even joked about how "our very own Karen almost ruined the entire act!" which obviously resulted in quite some booing. Turns out she was a regular there with a certain reputation and her name was actually Karen for real (which is a rather common name in the Netherlands).
I briefly saw her again after the performance arguing with the bartender, a few minutes later I hear the owner yell from behind the bar: "Karen has left the building, next round for the bar is on me!".
The band didn't get the professional attention they hoped for but the improved act did get them several more performances, including one in a well known club in Amsterdam!

2022.01.27 00:00 Mediocre-King-5587 Why does the package that arrived at my city HAS to be routed away to be sorted???
I'm sure I'm not the first one to post this but, damn is it frustrating.
My package was brought by Pitney Bowes from overseas, and then delivered directly to the local USPS post office in my city after it cleared customs. I was relatively pleased at this point. Considering Pitney Bowes's poor reputation, one week from UK to US is not bad at all.
However, after sitting in the post office 15 minutes from my house for a day, the package was routed away to the Springfield, MA distribution center to be "sorted".
When I called USPS they said they can't do anything. Even if the post office is 15 minutes from my house, they can't hand me the package because it has to be sorted first. And the only way to sort it is to send it to a distribution center two hours away, and then send it back again, a process which could very well take eight to nine days. Where's the logic in that???
I saw a post made by a former USPS postmaster saying that in their post office, they take out all the local deliveries at the end of the day and have them delivered the very next day instead of having them hauled off to the sorting center with everything else. I guess they don't do that anymore???
Anyway, any kind of help would be appreciated, if you guys can help at all.

2022.01.27 00:00 Xena2296 Train or Car in Bavaria?
We are going to Munich and want to see the romantic road and Bavarian alps...and the black forest would be cool too but I am unsure how to fit that in.
I find making sure we don't miss a train kind of stressful. Also the possibility of missing a stop somewhere we enjoy the look of. On the other side the train is cheaper and we don't have the stress of driving on the road as English speakers.

In "Scenes from an Italian Restaurant" there is the line "Drop a dime in the box and play the song about New Orleans". What do you think "the" songs is?
I figure it is probably The Animals' version of "The House of the Rising Sun". Could it have been something else?

2022.01.27 00:00 HoneyBadgerQueen2000 Moto G Stylus (2021) vs Samsung Galaxy a32
Ok so I'm a 22 year old college student (for context lol), and my Galaxy a20 is messing up since my update before the current one. I've been looking around for weeks, and I was considering an LG (but that's over), so now I've come down to two phones, listed in the title. I'm a very indecisive person and I don't wanna spend over 250, so I found a Moto G Stylus for 219 on Ebay, And a Galaxy a32 for a few dollars less. However, the galaxy is missing the sim tray so I'll have to purchase that separately. Along with a protective case and tempered glass. That'll bring the total to around 240. As for the Moto, all of the stuff I need, plus the phone totals to around 219.
I'm just worried abkjt making the wrong choice here and I keep changing my mind right before I add to cart. I've watched dozens of comparison videos and I'm leaning towards the Moto, especially since the one I'm looking at is the last one on stock.
Also, I found a Moto G Stylus from 2020, that's cheaper than both, but I don't wanna have to buy another phone for a few years, so I left that idea alone.
Thanks in advance :)

2022.01.27 00:00 GetHysteric I'm craving fountain coke, but it sucks now
As a child of the 90's, fountain coke from the classic 5-8 despenser machine was simply the best.
When it was on point there was nothing more refreshing and that hit the spot accompanied by a nice meal.
Now I feel like I can barely find a place that has a good fountain coke, even McDonald's doesn't taste as good anymore.
And don't get me started on those awful huge digital machines. They completely ruin the taste.
One time I even saw these maintenance people install these ink cartridge like looking blocks, which just kinda looked depressing.
The only time I can get it is when I occasionally find a place with a classic machine, which is becoming more and more rare.
Anyone else with me on this? Bring those damn old machines back!
