Yep, pretty much.
 
Some days this feels like my job in an (XKCD-ified) nutshell.

I'm sure this is asked frequently but I'm not seeing it in help, etc...  Is there a way to hit Alt, like Control for VolDown?  I use alt a lot in irssi, and I'd prefer to not have to change keyboards (I know some have Alt on the KB, but I use Swiftkey).  Perhaps something like VolUp-Something would pair up with the next key to send Alt-Key?  Awesome work, I just discovered this and I see a lot of potential for things for me to play with.  :)

+Walter Francis Mine is a worst case scenario suggestion. It might also break or bug apps that modify the hardware keys or you'll have to do that mod in a manner that does volume and other key at once..which might have unintended consequences...like, would it break screenshots,vol down + power, if volume down was also ctrl, as in doing ctrl+vol down+power.

Your suggestion isn't a bad idea for a feature request -- to manually select the key the volume keys emulate...though I'd like them to either switch sessions or use as a hotkey to run a script since I use a keyboard that has those keys already.

AutoRemote Discussion  - 
 
I might have something misconfigured, but I have a web service pushing Autoremote messages to me when there is a severe weather alert change so that Tasker can grab the latest weather and alert me to the severe weather alert etc.  Everything works great, but every time my web service pushes the info, I get a "received autoremote message" notification.  Is there any way to get rid of that notification?  I could probably cancel it with Tasker, but surely there's a way to not see that notification at all?

+gary scarborough​ It is something I want to do at some point but it's a system of things. The weather is provided by weather underground but a perl cgi grabs and parses it for Tasker. The cgi is what decides if a push needs to be done, if so, it just calls the autpremote url which causes Tasker to call it's task to update weather. A shell script on my server in a cron runs the cgi every 10 minutes which let's me get frequent severe weather updates, vs Tasker calling it more often. Tasker otherwise updates hourly. So, like I said, it's not super complicated but since there are server-side components it will require me putting something together.

Okay, most Instructables guides are pretty bad, but this one is great.  I have a proprietary cable with basically an ethernet connector on it and the tab broke and this fixed it.  Yay!

The Giver.. For movie as long as the book took to read, they did a decent job filing in time. However, it deviated so far from the book that you might hate it if you read the book. If you didn't read the book you'll just be confused half the movie. #netflix

Is there a specific reason that Termux is only available for API 21 or greater?  There are a lot of KK devices out there.  Thanks!

The list to move apps into folders on my nexus 7 2013 (stock 5.0.2) is really short.

Every time we come there are less flavors, machines are closed or converted to smoothies.

Bad service and expensive, limited options. We picked this restaurant from the many at the park to eat dinner and watch the light show, but wish we hadn't. The food options were very limited, expensive, and not all that impressive. Our drinks (coke, tea) were empty more often than not and mid-way through dinner the waiter took my glass of tea and never returned with it. And during dinner they took our plates, leaving us with a fajita type meal with no plate, so we were dripping beans and corn everywhere. The while experience was just terrible and I wish we had just eaten another tasteless hamburger instead of this.

To fix a leaking hot water tap in the tub they needed to replace all of the pipes to the faucet and shower head at $560. To replace the faucet itself, $1000. All of the work is basically done at that point, $1000 for a $150 faucet. Now I'm out $50 and looking for a plumber that isn't out to rip off people. After looking more, I realized that the "Generic, impossible to repair" stem was WIDELY available and got it for $11 off Amazon, part 9C-23H. Replaced it in 5 minutes with a 13mm wrench.

I needed a new dentist and was able to get into the office quickly, cleanings and other procedures have been painless and professional. Highly recommended.
