2023.06.08 21:00 AutoModerator Questions about moving or traveling to Wyoming? Ask here!

FAQ Summary (And these are very frequently asked here): If your question still is unanswered drop it in the thread below to ask the locals!
"What will the weatheroads be like in _____ month (Usually winter) when I'm traveling there?"
We don't know, and forecasts generally aren't "solidified" until a few days out. We're mostly exposed high plains, so large weather fronts can mean wide scale and extreme weather changes. Road closures and impassable conditions happen all over roughly from October to April any given year. I80 from Cheyenne to Rawlins in particular closes several times a month during our 6+ month long winter.
The WYDOT website, the 511 mobile app, and Google Maps traffic views are all your friends the day before or morning of any road trip through an area. High cross winds, whiteout ground blizzards, and sheet ice are all the norm. If you and your vehicle are not prepared for that and potentially being stranded, we highly recommend finding alternate routes. Towns are few and far between for rest, lodging, food, and fuel. And no, it's neither safe nor legal to ignore posted road closures.
"How is X town to live in? I'm moving from [somewhere completely different on the other side of the country]"
WY is the least populated state, and least densely populated state after Alaska, for a myriad of reasons. Rhode Island has quite a bit more residents. At time of writing, there are 4 towns with populations (barely) over 30k people, and Wyoming's population has overall shrunk in the last 5 years. It's a big empty. Jackson is very different than the rest of the state. Outside of a few of the largest towns, you will not have city amenities, and will need to road trip to them, or even out of state to a metro area, for certain things.
"I want to move across the country to go off the grid and be a self-sufficient homesteader in Wyoming...."
The land isn't very arable, the growing season is short, potable water isn't a given in many areas, and there's a reason Wyoming historically didn't have the grassroots homesteading / agriculture outside of ranching that other Western states had. We recommend you live here away from towns for a year before you try some "living off the land" adventure for your own safety and sanity.

2023.06.08 20:26 Kvetchus [Potential Spoiler] A clone of me delivered materials to a structure on the other side of the map?

So, I just finished picking the Evo Devo's junk up out of the crater and was walking up the mountain to make the drop off when one of those green "So-an-So delivered repair materials to wherever" messages appeared. Two of them were randos I didn't recognize but one of them was... ME. Now, not only was I a long way from that structure, but I can also say for sure I have never repaired that particular one. In fact, I have barely even been in that area of the map in a while, and then just to deliver pizzas
My game name is the same as my name here:
There have long been rumors that the multiplayer feature is a little fake, more designed to add a FEELING of multiplayer rather than the actual thing. Like some stuff - player building placements for example, maybe the likes given/received is accurate but the things that seem a little more real-time (if not everything multiplayer) is actually fake and procedurally generated using real player names. I don't know if that's true or not, and honestly: I don't actually care. I love the game, it's fun so I'm not concerned about with any of the dirty secrets. Thought I'd point out something weird that happened though, so if anyone else has spotted anything

2023.06.08 20:19 c300g97 Questions on the exynos variant

I'm confused on the battery life topics as of late, and wanted some clarifications..
For example :I can use the phone for as long as 8hrs of SOT from 100% when ONLY watching Youtube 4K or Netflix HDR over WIFI, but this is unrealistic behaviour. ( I have basically tested the battery life from 100 to 0 by only using multimedia APPS).
On the average day in and out of the office where i work, i'm getting 4 hours of SOT from 100 to 18% or so, when using 5G and doom scrolling apps like Reddit or Twitter , let's say for 20-30 minutes each, plus some 20 minutes of Chrome search and 10-20 minutes of Whatsapp use.
While the phone is active for a grand total of 11 hours , with WQHD+ , auto-brightness and vivid colours. (Adaptive Battery ON).
Do you think this is proper behaviour ?Does the Snapdragon variant have an advantage in battery life when using 5G ?
I don't play games , but Heartstone does wear the battery quite significantly, a couple of matches and i'm down 10% , same goes for the camera , a 4 minutes 8K video also will drop the battery fast.
I have called in Samsung for a remote battery check, and after 1 year of use, the battery life is at 99%.
The Samsung official repair shop is close to where i live, and i could go there and have them check out the battery , because my phone is still under warranty.

Used my SA200 today
Had a chain (strap) binder to weld on my landscape trailer today so I fired up the 1966 Redface for the job. Hadn’t used it for awhile. After boosting the dead battery she fired right up and idled fine. It always makes me smile to weld with it. Such a wonderful arc and the pleasing sound of the old flat head through the straight pipe. It can weld better than me for sure. I used 6010 5P+ and 7018 for the repair. I really don’t need this welder but after buying it as a barn find I have to much sweat equity in her to let her go.

2023.06.08 18:29 teltic First Prius Purchase - which to get?

I currently drive a 2016 Tesla model S and it's the worst car I've had. So many repairs I want to cry.
I googled "most reliable car", and here I am.
  1. Apple car play = 2020+. But it looks like I can install a new headunit?
  2. Auto pilot = 2016+ can use this aftermarket part called Comma AI? Does anyone have experience? I love autopilot on the freeway. If it keeps me in the lane, and has adaptive cruise control.... That's good enough for me :)
  3. Should I shy away from salvage? There seems to be a lot of those on Facebook marketplace...
  4. Plug in vs hybrid? It seems plug in batteries take up trunk space?
5.how many miles is too many?
Cars I'm casually looking at:
2012 Prius plugin 143k miles = $9k (clean)
2021 Prius prime with 29k miles = $17.8k (salvage)
2020 Prius LE with 61k miles = $19.9k (clean).
I lean towards 2020, because it will have apple car play and I can use comma AI.... But at the same time, if older and more miles is not an issue, why not save $10k going with the 2012 ?
Thank you so much!

2023.06.08 17:04 EeK09 WMI Provider Host process unusual CPU usage

I'd normally ask this question on techsupport, as it's not directly related to gaming, but that sub has been privated even before the planned Reddit blackout (on the 12th), and I don't know of any other alternatives, so, here I am.
I noticed that the WMI Provider Host application/process is using more CPU than normal. Usually, it would sit at literally 0%, or 0.1%, at the most (I have a 5900X).
Now, it never goes below 0.5%, hovering between 0.6%-0.8% and, sometimes, even hitting 1%. All of this while idling.
The only recent change I made to my PC was installing BlueStacks, so I could test an Android app (I don't have any Android devices). However, I made sure to kill all processes related to that (including auto-startup and associated scheduled tasks), so nothing unusual is running in the background that could cause an increase in CPU usage.
I've tried all fixes listed in this guide, short of a full Windows 10 re-install (which is not an option atm) - none of them helped. Running sfc /scannow did find corrupt files and successfully repaired them, but it didn't help reduce the CPU usage of the desired process.
Also, when trying to run either net stop wscsvcnet or net stop Winmgmt, I got the same error for both:
System error 5 has occurred. Access is denied. 
So, I wasn't able to try that fix, as I could only stop and restart iphlpsvc.
Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance!

2023.06.08 15:38 bernarbernuli [TOOL] All-in-One tool for Windows. Wear OS Tools v10.0

[TOOL] All-in-One tool for Windows. Wear OS Tools v10.0
It's a tool for use with any Wear OS watch. I am releasing today an improved and optimized version with several new features.

What does it do?

It is an All-in-One tool for Windows that makes it easy to do certain things with the watch, such as:
  • Send files to the watch such as MP3s, images, PDFs, or download files contained in the watch.
  • Install applications (Sideload).
  • Install applications in bulk
  • Uninstall apps of watch (Debloat).
  • Enable/disable Watch apps
  • Remove bloatware with Universal Android Debloater. [new]
  • Extract all the apps you have installed on the watch and mass restore them when necessary (Backup/Restore).
  • Get APK for Wear OS from "legacy" APK files for the phone.
  • Get APK for Wear OS in bulk.
  • Change ringtone, notification sound and alarm sound of the watch.
  • Mute ringtone, notification sounds, and alarm watch.
  • Manage vibration of ringtone, notifications or a specific application. [new]
  • Change screen density.
  • Change font size.
  • Use the computer keyboard to type on the watch.
  • Force pairing the watch with Bluetooth without resetting to factory defaults.
  • Repair synchronization in old watches such as Moto 360 Gen 1 or Sony Smartwatch 3.
  • Enter ADB commands via command line
  • Perform advanced reboot (Recovery Mode and Bootloader Mode)
  • View and control the watch from the PC with scrcpy (only Wear OS 3). [new]
  • Take screenshots of the watch screen, and send them directly to the PC (Screenshot).
  • Record the watch screen, and send it directly to the PC in MP4 format (Screen record).
  • Optimize the Watch.
  • Apply custom settings such as adjust screen timeout
  • View watch information such as serial number, build version, Android version, resolution, battery status...
  • Connection to the watch can be made via Wi-Fi, via Bluetooth or via USB cable.
  • History of connected devices. [new]
  • New way to pair and connect for Wear OS 3 watches.
  • Suggest the IP of the watch.


  • v9.0 (Jun 06, 2023): - Added function to view and control the watch from the PC (screen mirror) with help of scrcpy (in option 9). - Added tool to manage vibration for ringtone, notifications or for a specific app (option 4.4). - Added system to automatically download adb drivers in case of absence (on previous connection). - Added to automate downloading of necessary files (in option 3 and option 7.2). - Added Universal debloater to remove bloatware (in option 1.6). - Added history of connected devices by typing "log" (in previous connection). - Added specified folder where backup/restore is located (in option 2). - Improved screen recording function, now through scrcpy (in option 6.2). - Improved system for entering file and package names when installing/uninstalling or other operations, no need to type it anymore, just select it from the list (in option 1). - Improved system for selecting sound files and IDs (same system as above) (in option 4). - Improved optimization tool (in option 8). - Improved simultaneous connection pre-check of several devices. - Debugged all the code and reorganized the menus. - Resized all tool windows.


  • Windows O.S.
  • Have the ADB drivers installed. Here is the link to download them. During installation, make sure to enable the "Add to System Path Environment" option. Here you have more information about ADB drivers. Since v10, if you don't have ADB drivers installed, they are automatically downloaded and installed as soon as you open Wear OS Tools. [new]
  • Connect the watch and the phone to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Enable debugging over Wi-Fi on the watch. On the watch, go to Settings > system > About and tap "Build Number" several times until you see a message that says "you are now a developer". Then go to Settings > developer options and enable "ADB debugging" and "Debugging over Wi-Fi".
  • If you want to connect the watch to the phone via Bluetooth or Cable USB, follow the steps detailed on the tool.


  • The tool is available in English (EN) and Spanish (ES).
  • Tested on TWP3 and TWP5, please give feedback on other watches.
  • To find out the IP address of the watch, just go to "Debugging over Wi-Fi" in Settings > developer options. Under that option, you will see the IP. You can also see it in Settings > Connectivity > Wi-Fi > "Your Wi-Fi network".
  • You can connect the watch by USB cable, by Bluetooth or by Wi-Fi network.
  • Wear OS watches are a bit unstable to stay connected to the Wi-Fi network especially if it is connected by Bluetooth with the phone, to make sure it connects smoothly when using the tool enable the "Enable Wi-Fi automatically when charging" option in Settings > developer options, and plug the watch to the charger. Another trick is to momentarily deactivate Bluetooth in the watch, the Wi-Fi network will be activated in a few seconds.
  • Since v10 you can use the tool in multitasking mode, i.e. you can for example backup watch apps while you are applying custom configurations. [new]
  • When you have finished, turn off "ADB debugging" on the watch, otherwise it will drain your watch battery.

Where to download?

Wear OS Tool v10


  1. Download and unzip in a folder the file from the "Where to download" section.
  2. Make sure you meet all the points in the "requirements" section.
  3. Locate the IP address of the watch as explained in the "considerations" section.
  4. Run Wear OS Tools vXXX.exe and enter the IP address.
  5. If your watch is Wear OS 2 enter 5555 or nothing in the port number, and skip to step 7. If your watch is Wear OS 3, enter the port number, which will be different from 5555.
  6. Select "Pair new device" or "Wireless debugging" (This step is only performed the first time) and enter the IP, port and pairing code, then re-enter the IP and port number as in the previous step.
  7. A notification will probably appear on the watch asking "Allow debugging?", select "Always allow from this computer".
  8. In the tool, choose a function to run and follow the instructions on the screen.

Clarification on the new pairing procedure for Wear OS 3 watches

In the update in March 2023 for Pixel Watch, Google has implemented the new adb pairing procedure that had already been for some time on Android 11 and higher phones. It should be remembered that Wear OS 3 is based on Android 11, that is, watches like Pixel Watch, Galaxy Watch 5 or Fossil Gen 6. For now, this procedure is only implemented on Pixel Watch, but probably in the coming months it will be implemented on the other Wear OS 3 watches.​​
  • The process is that you must first pair the watch with a device such as a PC or smartphone, entering a random pairing code and a random port number (only the first time you pair to the device) and then the connection is made through the IP address as it was done so far, but with the difference that the port number is random (it is not 5555 as before) and you will have to consult it on the watch every time you connect the watch in developer mode.
  • Wear OS 2 watches, and for now Wear OS 3 watches (except Pixel Watch) connect the watch as usual and with fixed port number, i.e. 5555.

What custom settings and optimizations are offered?

Apply Custom Settings on the watch from the PC (option 8) **:**​
  • Hide/Display developer options menu.
  • Enable/Disable GPS location.
  • Adjust screen timeout beyond limits.
  • Enable/Disable ambient display.
  • Enable/Disable theater mode.
  • Enable/Disable auto brightness.
  • Adjust brightness manually.
Apply optimizations (option 8):
  • Double the speed of animations and transitions.
  • Optimizations to improve performance and reduce battery consumption.
  • Enable/disable adaptive battery management.
  • Enable/disable the processing speed management system.
  • Enable/disable useless configuration items in Galaxy Wtach 4/5.
Manage Vibration (option 4)**:**​
  • Enables/disables vibration when receiving calls.
  • Enable/disable vibration when receiving notifications.
  • Enable/disable vibration when touching the watch screen.
  • Enable/disable vibration for a specific application.
Delete cache memory (option 8)**.**​
Optimize performance (option 8) **.**​
Reduce battery drain with the dexopt optimization method (option 8) .


  • Force pairing with Wear OS 3 watches
  • Improve optimization tool with more optimization tasks (any suggestions from this thread for Samsung Galaxy devices or this thread for Pixel devices?).
  • Porting code to Linux and Mac via Java or Python.

Main Menu
Customize Watch sounds

I share this tool for free, to code the tool as it is now having taken me quite some time, I just ask for some feedback for the one who download it and try it.
If you are going to use it, please comment what you think or what bugs you see or what new features you suggest. Any opinion is interesting.

2023.06.08 15:03 alison-wood Common Mistakes to Avoid When Doing a String Line Wheel Alignment

Common Mistakes to Avoid When Doing a String Line Wheel Alignment

QuickTrick 4th Gen DIY Wheel Alignment Systems

A wheel alignment is a crucial maintenance task that ensures your vehicle's wheels are properly aligned, promoting even tire wear, optimal handling, and improved fuel efficiency. While a professional wheel alignment is recommended, some DIY enthusiasts perform a string line wheel alignment at home.
A string line wheel alignment, also known as a DIY string alignment, is a method of aligning the wheels of a vehicle using strings as a visual guide. It is a cost-effective alternative to professional wheel alignment services and can be performed at home or in a garage setting.
If you are a keen DIY wheel alignment enthusiast, you should know the common wheel alignment errors to avoid that can compromise the accuracy of this method.
Common Mistakes to Avoid for a Precise String Line Wheel Alignment
Let's explore string line wheel alignment issues and learn some tips to help you achieve a more precise alignment.
Neglecting Suspension Inspection
Before attempting a string line wheel alignment, inspecting your vehicle's suspension components thoroughly is essential.
Worn or damaged parts such as tie rods, control arms, and bushings can affect the alignment process and compromise the accuracy of your measurements. Make sure all suspension components are in good condition before proceeding.
Inaccurate Measurement of Wheelbase
The wheelbase, the distance between the front and rear wheels, plays a significant role in achieving an accurate alignment. One common mistake is not measuring the wheelbase correctly.
Ensure that you measure from the front wheel's centre to the rear wheel's centre on both sides of the vehicle. It will help maintain proper alignment and prevent issues such as dog-tracking.
Unevenly Inflated Tires
Another mistake to avoid is failing to check and adjust tire pressure before conducting a wheel alignment.
Unevenly inflated tires can lead to inaccurate alignment readings and affect the overall performance of your vehicle. Use a reliable tire pressure gauge to ensure all tires are inflated to the manufacturer's recommended levels.
Insufficient String Tension
Using strings as a guide is a common method for DIY wheel alignments. However, insufficient string tension can lead to inaccurate measurements.
Ensure the strings are taut and properly secured to provide a straight reference line. It will help you identify any deviations in the wheel alignment and make the necessary adjustments.
Ignoring Caster and Camber
Caster and camber are critical aspects of wheel alignment that influence vehicle stability and tire wear. Many DIY enthusiasts overlook these measurements, resulting in incomplete alignments.
Invest in a reliable alignment tool or seek professional assistance to accurately measure and adjust your vehicle's caster and camber angles.
Neglecting Toe Adjustment
Toe alignment refers to the inward or outward angle of the tires when viewed from above. It is crucial to set the toe properly to avoid excessive tire wear and ensure stable handling.
Neglecting toe adjustment is a common mistake during string line alignments. Utilize alignment tools or consult a professional to accurately set the toe alignment according to your vehicle's specifications.
Not Rechecking After Adjustments
Once you have made the necessary adjustments to your vehicle's wheel alignment, it is vital to recheck the measurements. Neglecting this step can result in an inaccurate alignment.
Take the time to re-measure and ensure that all adjustments are properly implemented before finalizing the alignment.
Performing a string line wheel alignment can be cost-effective for DIY enthusiasts. However, it is essential to avoid common wheel alignment mistakes that can compromise the accuracy and effectiveness of the alignment.
Quick Trick Alignment provides high-quality, portable alignment tools for DIY enthusiasts and automotive professionals. Check out their DIY String Alignment Kit today!
Frequently Asked Questions
1. How do you use the QuickTrick QuickString wheel alignment tool?
Using the QuickTrick QuickString wheel alignment tool is relatively simple. First, park your vehicle on a level surface and properly inflate the tires. Attach the alignment tool to the front or rear wheels using the included brackets or adapters.
Make sure the strings are taut and aligned with the vehicle's centerline. Then, measure the distance between the strings and the vehicle's front and rear wheels at predetermined points. Compare the measurements on each side and adjust as necessary to achieve proper alignment.
2. What are the differences between the 4th generation and 5th generation QuickString™?
The difference between the 4th Gen and the 5th Gen QuickString™ is the added ability to check toe at each tire instead of total toe AND check thrust angle to square your vehicle simultaneously. It works with offset tires as well as standard.
3. What tools are used for wheel alignment?
Various tools are used for wheel alignment, depending on the desired level of accuracy and the specific alignment method employed.
Some commonly used tools include:
Alignment Gauges: These gauges consist of calibrated plates or bars that attach to the wheels and provide measurements for toe, camber, and caster angles. Professionals often use them in conjunction with alignment machines for precise adjustments.
Laser Alignment Systems: Laser alignment systems utilize laser beams to measure and align the wheels. These systems often come with target plates or sensors that attach to the wheels and provide real-time alignment readings.
String Alignment Kits: String alignment kits, such as the QuickTrick QuickString tool, use strings as a visual guide to check the alignment. They typically include brackets or adapters to secure the strings to the wheels and provide reference lines for measurements.
It's important to note that while some alignment tasks can be performed using DIY tools, professional wheel alignment services utilize sophisticated equipment and expertise to ensure the highest level of accuracy and precision.
