Neighbor out. I'm home.
That old trick works even better now, because everyone and their aunt set automatic alerts for houses in #area with minimum x bedrooms and y bathrooms under price Z. Anyone looking for a house up to 700k will see your house at 699, and go, hey, that house is worth a million but it's too close to a big road? I can live with that minor drawback! While before, even if it was priced at 705k, only people searching for houses up to 800k would see it... And they would compare it to other houses at 799, with smaller downsides.House sold. Can't say I had quite as good an experience as Tinwhistler, but it did sell. Took a month and a price drop, all because we are on a busy road. But the moment we dropped the price, we were flooded with calls. I guess people were looking for sub-700k, despite the fact that houses in this neighborhood regularly go for 1M. It's amazing to me how much having the neighborhood entrance house dings you. On the other hand, that supermarket/gas station 9 tactic works. We dropped to 699 (a relatively small price drop), and it was like night and day.
@GasBandit could set a nude pic of himself for below 50 and the world would never know.It's a tremendous pain in the ass frankly. You have to search for everything (photos, run shortcut), which I didn't know because I've never messed with shortcuts
The hard part: letting your phone run down to test.
- Set up a shortcut for each image
- Find Photos - by Name Begins With (which you have to look at connected to your computer and will be something like IMG_9022), results limited to one
- Set wallpaper - Lock screen only, Photos as source (should use the thing you just filtered), no preview or whatever
- I named them by percentage (above 90, 70 to 80, 60 to 70, etc)
- Set up automation
- There is a setting for battery percentage, so I did above 90, below 80 and above 70 (2 automation rules),
- For the given percentage, run shortcut for that setting
- Turn off Ask before running
I'll have you know I have (with great effort) changed my battery habits. My previous phones battery life was utterly destroyed by my constant recharging to 100% every time it dropped below 70, to the point where in only 3 years it was only lasting 1/3rd of its original charge.
Good to hear.I'll have you know I have (with great effort) changed my battery habits. My previous phones battery life was utterly destroyed by my constant recharging to 100% every time it dropped below 70, to the point where in only 3 years it was only lasting 1/3rd of its original charge.
On my pixel 4a, I've started doing the 20-80 thing. I don't recharge until it hits 20%, and I stop charging once it hits 80%. This puts roughly 1/10th the cycle strain on the battery, making it last many more charge cycles than it would normally.
I got this app called AccuBattery which has an alarm that goes off when it gets to 80%. I try to charge my phone while I'm at work instead of overnight, so that I can take it off the charger when the alarm goes off.Good to hear.
I manage to do the 20 thing, but I realyl suck at the 80 thing. I do my best not to let it charge overnight, but still.
My phone could last all day on 80%. I usually go ~48hours between charges to 100%, (because I can never remember to only charge to 80%.) If I could tell my phone to only charge to 80% during an overnight charge, I could charge it every night and only have the most extreme use days take it down below 20%.I can't wait for the day when you can just tell your phone, "Look, I know only charging to 80% means it's not going to last all day, but I DON'T CARE just DO it."
All my research says you can get about 25lbs of honey per year out of a hive (sometimes more, sometimes less after leaving enough for the bees to overwinter with)..I need 12-15 lbs per batch of mead. So, that's 10 gallons of mead per year per hive.Hmmmm, Is that future meade I smell?
