Your brain doesn't know much has changed though. You're doing effectively the same activity for what, 15 hours a day? Change it up, explore some local trails, take up a new hobby, call friends/family, exercise daily... anything to get yourself doing something different.
There is the slight malicious compliance angle: just get a bike bag and carry it up in the elevator.
unrelated to your quest for a super-hot hot sauce, but you might also want to invest in one of these:
edit: hrm. sold out. must be a wide-spread problem 'round these parts!
Yes, FlashFood from Loblaws. I use it often.
It says up to 50% off but it is often more.
I tried to put it on my old foam exercise tiles (something like this https://www.amazon.ca/Yes4All-Interlocking-Exercise-Foam-Border/dp/B07BF7F2PN) and it was still too loud, when I was trying stuff. Our building is old and there is not a ton of soundproofing. Unfortunately there is only a single place I can put the unit, which is by the living room windows (as they are the only windows that I can put the exhaust). They also specifically complained that the noise from the exhaust was too loud for them.
Sadly setting it to low makes it stop doing A/C and instead seems to switch to fan only mode. Which does not do anything. If i set it to the normal level, this is too loud.
I will try ordering some thicker foam matts, and see if that does anything. Yeah my LL is a massive ass, I have seen him scream at people because they locked themselves out of their units (due to the stupid new electronic auto lock doors).
Look at statistics, available here, and see for yourself what is normal in terms of gun violence in Toronto
We won't be able to say whether the trend in gun violence is increasing for another few years. However, we can see that typically we have fewer than 40 deaths by guns/year.
I don' t think you understand the commentator's logic.
Online work opportunities aren't always "found" in Toronto. You sign up online to a number of different sites that offer online working opportunities around the world.
If the work is online, then the employer doesn't necessarily have to be from Toronto. You need to look at employers overseas or elsewhere like upwork.com or fiverr.
I work from home and online for a company based in the U.S.
Free VPNs is the pull out method and paid VPNs are a condom. You want a paid VPN if you want to be protected.
Just google “best VPN” and “paid vs free VPN” and do some research yourself.
I’ve used PIA, ExpressVPN, IPVanish, and NordVPN. All are solid and it’s really hard to go wrong picking one if you do your research. I liked ExpressVPN because they were one of the first with a mobile app.
Other subreddits like /r/VPN, /r/piracy, /r/trackers have post already recommending some, just use the search function

When you approach somebody, you don't know if....I am going to assume you are a straight male looking for straight women for my comment here....
You don't know if the woman is single, straight, busy doing something, going to the hospital to visit her sick mother, you have anything in common with her either than you have a dick and she has a vagina which both are cool tools.
What are your hobbies? if you enjoy let's say football, why not go onto meetup.com and look up a local football game you can join, by football I mean soccer. You can meet someone there.
That square footage is very shoebox. The kitchen and the furniture size seem a bit off, but I think this is the floorplan
I live on the 25th and don’t see a dust problem, maybe that’s from roads/construction? I do get a lot of little flies/bugs. We purchased these amaaazing comfy chairs from Home Depot (just went to find them and they’re no longer on the site so maybe not available). But my point is that we leave them outside through rain/snow etc and they’re still in perfect condition, we use these chair covers : AmazonBasics Lounge Deep-Seat Outdoor Patio Furniture Cover, Set of 2 https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00LFIZ4Q6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_i_D6A5AZ6BY5P1D77DF452 they’re very basic, super easy to remove each time. We keep them buckled to one leg and they don’t fly away even in highest winds, and the chairs underneath after rain/snow are completely unharmed by the elements. This will be the third summer we use these chairs - so these covers have very well protected them through two winters so far. Hope this helps ! I see other commenters have mentioned cushions/ don’t get white cushions. Our cushions are white, and we leave them out just cover them with this cover whenever not in use and they’re still very white and clean
Totally not an answer to your question, but you know you can dye your blue jeans dark blue/black again right? Tintex, Rit, Dylon are all fabric dye companies and as long as your jeans are mostly cotton, you can dye them dark again right in your machine. I dye my black jeans black again about once a year because I don’t like the faded distressed look.
If you do go down this road, read the directions carefully and if in doubt about the weight of the jeans you want to dye, err on the side of caution and use two packages. Also, some brands require salt or vinegar to be added as a fixative or softener.
They're 39 bucks on Amazon. Finding a professional to repair them would likely cost more. The repair itself should be fairly straightforward but it's not trivial.
Nothing to be that worried about, they find your address from a multitude of locations:
There's probably other ways too they could have gotten your address.
I know the CRA scam is also slowly starting to incorporate addresses since their scam becomes more convincing. It wouldn't be something I'd worry about personally.
All great restaurant suggestions, but if you want the convenience of making it at home, I would suggest this instant Laksa. They're available in most asian supermarkets.
There a 25% off Groupon available if that makes enough of a difference in the price for you. Here.
I’ve been thinking about this for a couple years, too. The main thing I came up with is scraping since I couldn’t find weather forecast records for my area (Buffalo).
I found https://darksky.net which is free for up to 1000 queries per day. It’s still scraping over time, I haven’t found a log of historical forecast data.
Why don’t forecasters track their accuracy!? Someone has to be the best. Why wouldn’t they advertise that?
If you are into sports, join a sports team, look at meetup.com for sports games (local, not proffesional).
There are reddit meetups from time to time, there was a potluck on friday somewhere. Didn't go.
You need either one of these:
Sabrent USB 3.0 to SSD / 2.5-Inch SATA Hard Drive Adapter [Optimized for SSD, Support UASP SATA III] (EC-SSHD). https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B011M8YACM/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_2QKCJF14Q3N6EFMJSSWT
Or one of these:
FIDECO SATA/IDE to USB 3.0 Adapter, Hard Drive Adapter Cable Converter for Universal 2.5/3.5 Inch IDE and SATA External HDD SSD, 5.25-Inch DVD-ROM/CD-ROM/CD-RW/DVD-RW/DVD+RW, Support 12TB (SATA/IDE Cable PL03) https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B077N2KK27/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_V6F3RE58B7SDAZ7J6CDY
Depending on what your hard drive connector looks like.
Then you just plug it in to another computer and copy your data.
However, if it doesn't show up on the other computer, or makes weird clicky noises, you may have to take it to a specialized data recovery shop (not just a random computer store). Which will be expensive.
Always backcountry. Canoe/portaging and hiking. I just use one of those plastic carrier thingies. They have little prongs inside to cushion the eggs from the numerous impacts. I've only ever broken a single egg on 5-6 trips. I put this inside a freezer bag to contain any possible messes.
not going to help your mint but these work at keeping your yard racoon free.
I wonder how fast the down-votes will arrive..
People absolutely go out. Toronto’s winters are actually incredibly mild compared to other places in Canada. Here’s what July was like in 2020 : https://www.wunderground.com/calendar/ca/toronto/CYTZ/date/2020-7
And heres what January was like ;
January is usually the coldest month, July is the hottest
Edit: sorry idk why the link showed in F , you might have to go to the settings for C
Start around the same location but instead of going to the islands, head up to the Humber River Recreational Trail all the way to Scarlett Mills Park.
The nice thing about this one is that it isn't necessarily a fixed destination so you could go part way and turn back as her fitness level allows. Technically "copying" the concept but if she's interested in it, run with it.
VERY POSSIBLY A SCAM
The bank takes more than a few days to clear a cheque. They might "release the hold on the cheque" after a few days, but if that cheque bounces they can still come back to you and withdraw the money from your account even if it's weeks later.
Call your bank and ask for advice.
Do not withdraw cash to hand to your aunt to hand back to her boss.
Dark Sky. I use CARROT on iOS which pulls Dark Sky data, I'm not sure the actual Dark Sky app is available in Canada. You'll have to find an Android app that uses Dark Sky data. Beware though, you have to pay for it ... something like $2/yr!
Check it out. It is INCREDIBLY detailed. You can drill down into to the minute forecasts, radar views, etc. Very very high quality data.
I'm a bit of a data nerd and I simply haven't found a better data source than Dark Sky.
November can be a mix depending on the year. it could be plus 10 and nice out, it could also be -5 and sleety
i typically use accuweather (https://www.accuweather.com/en/ca/toronto/m5j/november-weather/55488?monyr=11/1/2018&view=table) to look at long term (obviously there isn't much accuracy in it that far out, but it can give you an idea of what to expect.
Get a Curt class 3 2"....Almost any mechanic can install it its not that hard.Its just easier to have it on a lift.U Haul is a good place if you dont want to run around looking for one or Rack Attack.
As an alternative, I've had zero problems after I added these spikes
It makes your balcony less attractive to them so they just go to one of the other ones and you don't need to cover your space in netting.
First, use this calculator. It will tell you what your goal calories should be for a day. Try to aim to lose at MOST 2 lbs a week. Anything more than that is unhealthy and unsustainable. 1lb/week is realistic and won't leave you too hungry. You WILL be hungry if you try and lose 2lbs a week.
Exercise doesn't really matter for weight lost, it's much more about what you consume for calories. However, if you want to walk/run/lift weights it's good for your overall health - but it won't make you lose weight. Make sure you account for those calories in the calculation (for instance if you burn 350 calories on a run, that's 350 more calories you have to eat that day).
For food, buy this book: It is so tasty and everything is low calorie. Hands down the best cookbook i've had - you get to eat real food and it take 20-40 minutes a meal in a single dish. PAY ATTENTION TO SERVING SIZE, don't go over it. Get a food scale if you can.
Food is basically the only thing that matters for weight loss, you can't out train a bad diet.
Source: I lost 20lbs between Jan 1 and Mar 1.
Just buy a portable washlet.
Sounds like $130 dollars is a small price to pay if you're crying over poop at work.
Yes, it does.
You could probably just go look at the App Store and have all your questions answered rather than asking me:
For your next concert, plan ahead and get in on the pre-sales.
Check the facebook event page. Probably better selection closer to the date of the show when people realize they can't go. Tickets for seats will still be expensive since it's more of a festival with 4 bands playing.
You also missed the groupon
Most doorknobs are a universal size, but going from a keyless to a keyed knob may give slightly different sizes. I recommend you take the old doorknob off and take it with you to the store so that you can make sure the new one will fit perfectly without a need to drill/chisel out wood to make the new one fit.
You also should know which side the door opens to so that you get a knob that will work (especially important for a handle-type doorknob, the ball-type you can get away with putting in upside down). Take a picture of the door open a little from the side you want the lock on and the salesperson should be able to help.
If you're still a little uncertain about taking off the old doorknob before putting the new one on, video yourself doing it, it makes it much easier to backtrack if you need to.
Used to be, but since amalgamation in 1998, it's a part of the city of Toronto. That's why there are city counsellors from etobicoke-Lakeshore, Etobicoke centre and Etobicoke north that sit on Toronto city council and have offices in City Hall.
> That being said, the university is not for some people. The stress/anxiety/workload is just not for everyone and that's okay. But I do believe you should at least give it a shot.
I didn't go to university for this exact reason; college's stress/anxiety/workload was still a lot to handle, even with my parent's help. I did not have a decent sleep schedule, and that negatively affected my epilepsy. But I finished my degree to help me get into university if needed.
However, what OP should look into are theodinproject or freeCodeCamp courses to get started alongside participating in open-source projects to help build his development skills.
Here are my suggestions:
I personally use the Chromecast / Google Cast. However I am also interested in getting the Xiaomi Mi Android box. It's officially supported by Android TV. It's been on sale before for about $100 or $110 at NCIX, DirectCanada and NewEgg so set a RedFlagDeals alert to keep watch for it.
it's the cheapest official Android TV box out, I don't think anything else should even be considered.
Anyway for my Chromecast, I use the following apps (as some have already suggested).
A Chromecast is about $45, it does everything I need so far. The only reason I would want an Android box is to also use it as a DVR with an app like TinyCam Pro plus use it for all the media. Kodi is great on Android boxes, but honestly I only watch movies and TV shows on Terrarium or Netflix.
(Thank you! This was really nice of you. I'm going to go look into classes I can take to occupy my time. Also, the meetup.com recommendation was great! I've never heard of this before. I hope you have a lovely day!)
I got a very good door Jammer for when I'm home, no one is getting the door open even if it's unlocked. Here's the link :
Buddybar Door Jammer by Buddybar https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B002BQ4VBU?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
And I bought Wyze cameras for when I'm not home, that notify me of any sound or movement. It also has a 2 way speaker.
But if you're not expecting anyone, simply don't answer or unlock your door.
You can use these to keep the glass in place
I've been using it without an issue for over a decade
It's like... 40 years old now... but that's the authoritative one. With lots of maps too!
Emma at The Cabinet. Also, has your partner tried stopping using shampoo. I just clean my curly hair with conditioner combed through with a fine-tooth comb. It's coming up on 17 years and it's been the best decision I've made for my hair. This is the book that got me started but you don't need to read the book. If they decide to try that out, I'd recommend using condition and brown sugar to exfoliate their scalp for the first couple of weeks. Then, straight to just conditioner. https://www.amazon.ca/Curly-Girl-Handbook-Lorraine-Massey-ebook/dp/B003YL4KS0/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1MWPVFCHYF30G&dchild=1&keywords=curly+girl&qid=1624998603&sprefix=curly+girl%2Caps%2C171&sr=8-1
> I recommend staying alert after 10PM.
/u/Guasha_: You might also want to read <u>The Gift of Fear</u>. The book is a couple of decades old, but perhaps somewhat of a classic.
I'm going to buy one of these and offer PD measuring services for $10/pop in Toronto. Screw opticians holding us hostage to their brick and mortar stores.
Also, $170 is way too much to be paying for an optometrist visit.
Here is what I used with noisy upstairs neighbours. I've continued to use them on a nightly basis because they are so effective: https://www.amazon.ca/Hearos-Plugs-Xtreme-Protection-pairs/dp/B001EPQ86A
Bluetooth or wired?
Either way, Amazon has lots of options. I got these:
Great for the money!
You can get an ethernet for under $20 and plug it into your router. Also, your employer won't know what type of connection you're using. They might tell you to get a faster connection or something if they notice any disruptions on your end.
I used Private internet access for 3 years it's pretty good but this year switched to Torguard because they were cheaper with a promo code. So far so good, nice torrent speeds. The half off promo code "givehalf" still works for the annual plan.
it a cat and mouse game with Netflix and VPN providers. I used to have ExpressVPN. You can configure it to use your router so that all connected devices access VPN or you can do device only install too
I got a rain poncho https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B007JYI1HO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_p0TLBbSS8J927
Looks kind of stupid while wearing but it keeps me dry much better than an umbrella especially with the heavy rain.
Personally I love it and cannot recommend it highly enough, although it's true more popular novels do have longer waiting lists.
Don't forget Project Guttenberg though, now could be just the time to read the entire works of Tolstoy:
I've searched around for pin legs in Toronto and didn't succeed at finding them. There are odd ones on kijiji and craigslist once in a while, try that. Also you can try marketplace on facebook. I do have 4 wooden round screw in legs for a side table, they are sixties style. kind of like this https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/small-asymmetrical-wooden-coffee-table-on-460929067?src=kDpot9AltXoiSx6jxNT6hg-1-4
Have you checked if your photos haven't been backed up automatically? Go to https://photos.google.com/ that's where Android phones backup the pictures by default.
If the pictures were saved to a SD card, you may be able to recover them with Photorec (free software), it might also work by connecting the phone to a computer and mounting the data partition.
Join a hiking club? Should be some on meetup.com, or you could always join something like the Bruce Trail hiking club. Might be something like board game meetups on meetup.com as well.
You can audit any university language course for free as a student, check the ones at your college/university. When you audit a course, it means no credit, no exams and no assignments handed in to mark, just listening, sitting in class. With the first year large classes of a place like UofT, come September, probably not even going to notice an extra person sitting in the classroom.
There's also free online courses, like the ones at MIT Opencourse software. You only pay when you want a certificate. Once you get comfortable, there's French clubs at meetup.com and some local college/universities to practice (usually don't need to be a student to join a club at any college/university).
The bigger question is why French? Apart from Ottawa, Quebec and the government where most bilingual jobs are, not a high in demand skill here in Toronto. If you're looking to get into government, most entry level jobs look for 'various language requirements' as it's hard to find enough french speakers in Canada. Once you're hired, then they will pay for french language training. The exam to pass to be considered bilingual with the federal government is very difficult, I've known some Quebecers, native french speakers who have failed it and English ones from Montreal who take a couple of times to pass even with highschool french. As an English native speaker with minimal French, you're probably going to need a couple of years part time to come close to being qualified for their bilingual designation in job postings.
Dating apps are not there to help you find someone, they're there for profit. Match.com is currently being sued for false advertisement and other shady business practices.
I just had a conversation recently with someone here about this and as I told her, I'm working on my businesses and have put dating aside, altogether. When I am out and about it is never a problem as I get hit on a lot so when things open up there will plenty of parties to attend :) Get on your purpose man and strive for greatness. Also, they say men don't start hitting their stride until 35 so do not rush this thing.
It really can vary. As others said, last year was very mild, the year before that it was historically cold (https://www.thestar.com/news/starweather/2015/03/it-s-official-february-was-toronto-s-coldest-month-ever.html).
This year they are predicting lots of snow for Toronto: https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/canada-winter-forecast-snowstorms-to-frequent-ontario-quebec-dangerously-cold-air-to-grip-the-prairies/70002988
I'd try freelance sites, like upwork.com. There's always writing opportunities, not as well paying as local jobs but effective for your needs. Basically you register, then bid on jobs, complete the work on the agreed upon timeframe. It has lots of competition for tech with Asia being happy earning less, but not so much for writers with a command of the english language, your degree will speak for itself.
While not pie, you can get cookies or cupcakes, maybe even an ice cream sandwich delivered from Sweet Flour
They also can typically do delivery outside of uber eats www.sweetflour.ca
I'd worry about trashed furniture infested with bedbugs... 🙀
Check out Freecycle.org. Join the main Toronto group and maybe smaller groups closest to you. Furniture is offered pretty regularly.
Alternatively DAZN Germany, Austria, Switzerland will be carrying it.
Use a good VPN (we use NordVPN) and set it to one of those countries. Then login with your DAZN credentials
DAZN has (had?) a 30 day free trial period
I had these super heavy curtains that were 100% blackout in my old condo, I checked and found it on my amazon list:
These are 100% blackout. Many mornings in pitch black can attest to this.
If you are set on blinds, none are truly blackout and the best bet will be california blinds.
This is the ones we got. We had got a queen 12 inch and two 6 inch doubles. All expanded properly, I made sure to massage the corners and edges which apparently helps, as you see from the reviews other have had issues with expanding, but mine were good. The 12 inch is definitely comfier than the 6 but they are all decent.
A popcorn maker isn't really necessary. You can get these special bowls that can pop regular corn in the microwave.
Not yet. I'm looking at this one on Amazon. https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B08H89Z8QC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_i_BP4Q53NNMM55FG36RYN8?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Edit : 25 lbs. https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B08H8F9RV7/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_i_VH0MY6ZRXP8H65CCV1VS?psc=1
So I had a bathroom exactly like the one you're describing. No fan, and just a window. The window was on the side of the tub, meaning someone outside could look in if it was open (the window was frosted). My first attempt was a little dehumidifier I kept plugged in in the bathroom. It helped a lot with the addressing the dampness / steam / etc. post-shower, but it took awhile. Ultimately, I had to resort to getting a screen to put in the window so that I could keep it open, and the steam would go out while I was taking a shower. Both of these combined made it so that even if there was some steam post-shower, it quickly went away instead of leaving things damp.
Regardless of the above, you'll need to get the mold treated.
This is the one I’ve used: Rabbitgoo Rainbow Window Film 3D No Glue Decorative Window Film Privacy Window Film Anti-UV Window Tint Window Glass Film Privacy Glass Tint for Home Office Windows, 17.5 x 78.7 inches(44.5x200cm) https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01N20YR6B/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_i_7266E2FZCFAV6TKPQ3GK?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
It’s held up great over three years and makes gorgeous rainbow prisms when the sun hits it directly!
It sucks that you need to do this, but a serious can filter and fan combo should get rid of all odors in your unit.
This isn't the greatest brand, but to give you an idea of what I'm talking about:
Amazon price can do delivery by Tues if that works. Price seems reasonable compared to the next one...
Kensington, store appears to be open till 7 pm. Idea would be to pull off or pluck of the silly little logo thing in the front. If it's stitched or glued on. Outrageous price, but if urgent for a film shoot and good pay, it may be worth while.
By F***t loser was the F word a derogative term for LGBT or was the F word fat?
Anyways...not condoning things but sometimes it is not worth confronting people, specially if the other person can....I believe the expression is kick your ass. Next time, call 911 if you feel threatened.
Also, start wearing one of those wearable cameras on your shoulder. Something similar to this.
I had a situation but I was a pedestrian and I had a right of way and a cyclist just wooshed passed me.
NEVER GET INTO A PHYSICAL CONFRONTATION. If you can walk away then walk away. Taking photo of license plate and so forth. Let the car go, and if there are people around (witnesses) then talk to them and ask one of them to call police.
If you resort to confronting the person, you can get hurt or even killed. It's about safety.
I feel safe.
Anyways...learn that not everyone around you on the street is out to get you/hurt you.
Get a flashlight and a rape whistle (or whatever the hell they are called).
Maybe get a personal alarm keychain thing on Amazon. Here.
Maybe you are not used to go out for a walk/run with so many people.
Hey man - if it's taken you more than 2 hours to fix this. Just buy a wifi dongle for like 15-20 bucks off amazon. Plug and play into USB-A usually and you are good to go.
I'm a sysadmin and fixing shit fast remotely is sometimes needed around here. That would be my quick fix.
I'm not an fedora connoisseur but I've always felt that the angle of the brim of the Indiana Jones fedora had a superior angle, sir.
Sounds like you need a transforming X coffee table.
It is heigh adjustable, folds down from coffee table to for seatier disning table or a higher, work surface.
I am lazy, here is an amazon link to what I am talking about, they are out of stock:
Think there is a place in toronto that specializes in smalls spaces that also sells them. My ex has one, it was great. He did buy it locally, I cannot remember where and texting him to ask seems like a bad idea.
It might be a challenge finding it in a physical store but they seem to have them on Amazon if you're willing to order.
How about a 20 ft wacky wavy inflatable arm flailing tube Santa?
Amazon sells them. Hopefully you can get them with next day shipping
This sounds like it would be best to make but I would look at Amazon or Etsy or something first.
Otherwise, a trip to Home Depot or Lowes and you'll probably find the materials you want.
Maybe take this:
And cover a square cardboard box with it?
Sorry. I did a quick search of a few places and couldn't find any large cubes of foam beyond like 5x5x5". And the novelty dice I found were only like 3x3x3" or so.
Not much you can do now, and I don't think the police will be very interested because it has very little chance to amount to a conviction.
For future reference and as a PSA, this locking technique has never failed me (with a Kryptonite cable for the front wheel, cf. amazon): https://www.sheldonbrown.com/lock-strategy.html
Recurve. 25-30lb. They look like this:
I suggest you do your own research as I didn't do much before I made my purchase and I think I should have spent more and bought something a bit better. I've heard Bass Pro Shops has great service when trying to pick a bow.
If you are buying, I recommend the accessories. This gets pricey but they are worth it. I don't know all the terms but there's a forearm protector as well as a little thing you can put on your fingers to protect those. I skipped them at first and ended up buying after going out a few times. My forearm was raw and my fingers hurt. As for arrows, buying a bunch in bulk on Amazon will lead to crappy arrows that don't fly well. I've tried a few. All junk. The $7 Eastons are the only arrows I've liked. Be prepared to destroy and lose a few :)
I bought a fingerprinting kit from Amazon (like $15-20 or so, don't remember), a teeny tiny inkpad, and I guess got the template from FBI website (or somewhere....I remember having a gridded paper of some sorts) and rolled my own, then sent to FBI. Got back my info two-three weeks later.
edit: this one, apparently only $7 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001HA4PJ4/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I got a MINIX NEO U9-H as my first ever android box purchase. Comes pre-loaded with essential apps such as Kodi, Youtube, etc. and the interface is super user friendly. As someone who used to just have my PC directly connected to my TV this makes things 1000 times easier. The remote alone is worth it. I haven't used voice commands yet, but having the full qwerty keyboard on the back side and ability to use it like a mouse just makes things super easy.
One thing I must recommend is make sure it is plugged into a surge protected bar/outlet. I had mine for a week, had a 10 minute blackout and it fried the power supply :( That was a rookie move by myself though. I explained to the seller on Amazon and they are providing a replacement, so you can buy in confidence!
JVC Marshmallow earbuds are my favourites. I've been using them for years, but I usually go through 2 or 3 pair a year. I think it's a combination of the cold and how I wrap the cords.
The in ear part is foam, not plastic and they're pretty good for being comfortable and blocking sound. I usually get them from Amazon or Factory Direct, but I've also seen them at Staples. They come in a wide variety of colours. I usually get whatever is cheapest.
Note: they come in 2 versions and you want to get the ones with the mic/music control on the wire.
I haven't seen them in a while used to see them at my wholesale club. Though I accidently bought Amazon prime for a year and I can order it and get next day delivery for you if you'd like. Swiss Chalet Dipping Sauce 36g 6 Pack https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07BN15BJ6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_6fnBBbP06HQRN
It came out in the UK earlier this year, so the paperback is available there. You can buy from amazon UK for very cheap in paperback but you'll pay the conversion and it might not be worth it.
The CH700N's offer fantastic sound quality and comfort. Sadly there's no case included and the noise cancelling is a step below the Bose and more expensive Sony's but they're a fabulous middle ground. I bet they go on sale at Amazon and Best Buy within a week or two for $149-$169. I'm waiting for this to buy a pair for a friend for Xmas I like mine that much.
Edit: if you can't wait these are both on sale and are great deals, I just prefer the fit/comfort of the CH700N's. Also buy from Amazon if possible, you can't return headphones to BB.
I use AirVPN on all of my devices, and am with TekSavvy for home internet. No problems across Linux, OSX, Windows, or Android. I routinely forget to turn the VPN off on my file, print, and media server and have uptimes spanning days. (Edit: To be clear, this is for a consumer VPN for encrypting general internet traffic. Who knows how your office VPN is set up, but odds are if it doesn't like TekSavvy that's probably not TekSavvy's fault.)
I have this collapsible cart and can’t recommend it enough. I do have a car but have to park a long ways from my door and this has been my weekly hauler for a couple of years now.
Probably too long to take on transit when extended (but fine when collapsed). So, maybe best if your in walking distance or get an Uber/cab for your trip home with groceries.
Have you tried these? I lived at home all throughout my Bachelor's and these (actually a similar model which I couldn't find) were a lifesaver.
$13 arrives tomorrow. Surely the kind of disposable junk you seek.
The coop has them and they’re on sale: https://www.mec.ca/en/product/5043-102/Revel-III-Winter-Boots
You can also order them direct from Keen, or Amazon has them in stock as well, easy to return if needed. KEEN Womens Revel III Hiking Boots https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00RKKFCAQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_t6LzFbV1FA1M5
Otherwise I would call around to the various stores, I don’t know who has specific models or sizes in any given store
Single hose: Danby 10,000 BTU. Cost $379.99 last year, currently $349.99.
Dual hose: Haier 13,500 BTU. Cost $469.99. Don’t see it or any other dual hose model on Costco’s website.
EDIT: found it on Amazon. Haier HPNFD14XCT 14,000 13,500 BTU Portable Air Conditioner, Small, Black/Silver
Been using ExpressVPN for over a year now. Havent gotten a notice since I switched (From Hola, I know) I can pirate freely and access piratebay through specific servers, even when it is down in NA. It’s also very interesting seeing what news outlets show when you set your vpn to different countries.
You won't get 1:1 ever since there is technological cost. A lot of providers max out at 1 or 2 mb/s too.
BlackVPN has a fairly good Toronto server and they have a free trial through their Android app. Nordvpn is crap don't go there.
Google's PhotoScan app (for your phone) is designed for turning photos into digital scans, it works surprising well. My mom used it to digitize hundreds of old photos. So just go to Shoppers / somewhere that does passport photos and scan it. Should be more than adequate for a CIC photo:
Provides cost estimates and ETA for transit, cabs, Uber, Car2Go, biking and Bixi, you name it. Can track locations and navigate you to them with a click, plus automatic commute tracking for home and work addresses if you enable it and give your hours. Still slick despite all the features, and my phone is garbage. Highly recommend it.
How about a fake fish tank so he can feel like he's taking fish on the road?
like this one:
It's battery powered. You could throw in some command strips too, so he can attach it in his truck
