Tired of spending money for pay TV?
A good old roof antenna will give you high definition broadcasts, up to 100 channels in some markets. A converter box can be used for older TV compatibility, $25-40

tvfool.com, antennaweb.org, rabbitears.info



There is also free satellite TV available, mostly international broadcasting but there's some cool stuff out there too.
Search for "FTA Satellite". A low cost fixed dish can run you $200-300 if you install it yourself. Ku-band (small dish) has a lot, C-band (large dish) has even more.

No monthly fees at all, for the price of 2 months of Direct or Dish you can get the equipment for free TV for life.

1 lookup the frequencies you are interested in in your area.
2 check out the measurements for a yagi antenna on said frequency
3 build said antenna, which is cheap and very easy if youre willing to pay attention for about 10 minutes, you will need a few lenghs of copper wire and some wood or anything non conductive to hold them.

Modern Mom 17/03/20(Mon)08:46 No. 2979 ID: 193bde

You may also want to look into software-defined radios and how to get TV from them, an rtl2832u dongle is about 7.50$US.

A yagi is has
-a driven element, meaning a U shaped wire, on end connected to the center wire on the coax, the other end conneted to the outer layer IE ground.
-a few parasitic elements, meaning lengths of metal measured to be resonant at the frequency you are interested in, the lengh and spacing in between each element is speficic to the frequency range you want, use online calculators or whatever design you find on the interwebs.
-one or several reflecting elements, meaning lenghs of wire larger than the others, so on so forth.

Onward, lad.
To glory

I got a capture card for my pc; two actually. I have one ancient analog->mpeg2 card with inputs for coaxial, RCA, and Svideo and one digital->passthrough for (coaxial) ISDB-t/s (Japan). Less expensive than the integrated-DVR TV sets they sell here and infinitely more capable.

How it works: If you own a lot of earrings, they can easily get lost or disorganized. Pinterest and other websites have a lot of ideas to help, from hanging them on cheese graters or sports rackets to replacing glass in a picture frame with wire mesh.

How it actually worked: I didn't have a cheese grater or tennis racket to spare, nor the time to measure and tack mesh over a picture frame. So I started looking around the house for other candidates. I had a mesh magazine holder that held glossies from 2011. Bingo.

Life changing?: Yes. Not only did I recycle the magazines, but I also upcycled the office supply into something more functional. I put the pairs of earrings I had on one side, and single earrings on the other side, in case I find their matches. I ended up filling the inside with my bangle bracelets so I got double storage with one item.

I have an appointment to get some tests done to prove i have ADHD and autism. (I was diagnosed with ADHD as a child but not autism.) so i can get SSI. Now, i know its not a popular thing, but how do i prove i have autism? Im socially retarded, that much is clear to me, but how do i prove that? Do i just start throwing up as soon as i try communicating with another human? I don't want to work, thats my dream. People are always going on about following your dream. I dont need moralists and baby boomers who have "strong" work ethics and ideas telling me what for.

Modern Mom 17/03/04(Sat)01:13 No. 2971 ID: 2140d8

I got tested by psychiatrists when I was a teenager and I was diagnosed with Aspergers. I used this to my advantage and got into SSI, made a living as a shut in in my own apartment for years. Eventually I was unable to afford an apartment because of rent prices increasing and I don't have a way to make more money now. Eventually you're gonna reach a point where you need more money. You need to find an extra source of income. You can't just live off of SSI. I did that for along time and I'm regretting it.

Get yourself a pressure cooker. With it you can save on energy and food costs.
Faster cooking time = Less energy spent
Legumes and cheap meat cooks faster = cheaper food
Seriously, you can buy the most crappy cuts with most connective tissue and the pressure cooker will dissolve all that and you end up with delicious meat. Also cooking beans for example is a lot less hassle when you don't have to cook it for hours and hours.
Your relative probably has one somewhere that is useless to them lying around. They used to be a fad .

You want a crock pot. Its way safer, and low stream of energy used. Plus coming home to a hot, cooked meal is awesome are waking up to warm breakfast oatmeal. etc.
So easy to prepare.

If they happen leave a box of something big empty on the floor... grab it.. fill it up with all the small things you want.. and pack it tight.

High risk, but huge reward.

Yes, you either pay for whatever the big box item is.. or you run with this box OUT THE BACK, not the front. but inside you packed it with stuff to make it worth your while. Go towards the hardware section.. clear pack tape the box. Go pay. A cart helps.

Many stores, the back exit is unwatched.. and if anyone stops you.. "my mom is bringing the car around for a pick up." etc.

I've done it, Anons. I quit my job which I hate. Although my family and friends are in a panic because I don't have another crappy minimum-wage income waiting for me, I am entirely comfortable with this. I need a month off to write a particular book, anyway.

One way to supplement my savings while I am not working is salvage. By "salvage", I mean a polite term for dumpster diving. It's not a consistent form of income, but I am more than willing to give it a try.

The pictured book is the Art and Science of Dumpster Diving by John Hoffman. He also wrote Dumpster Diving: The Advanced Course. These books are out of print and getting harder to find. I had to order the former twice through Amazon before I finally got my grubby mits on a copy, but there is an ebook form of it available. I give both a huge recommendation and can go into detail if anyone is interested in reviews.

I have been a scavenger since college when my allowance wasn't quite enough to cover both bills and food. I have never before attempted to sell nor trade anything I have recovered. Turning forty this year, I decided to rent a small storage unit and return to this hobby.

I will begin giving a summaries of what I am finding in following posts. Hey, I don't like seeing a wall of text in an OP either. Summary: I am having way more fun diving than I ever did at any job.

There was some attempt to get supermarket dumpster-divers legally protected, after a handful got arrested for trespassing or even theft, for taking food (past it's display until, but not use by, date). Dunno what came of it, though.
Industrial estates might be worth trying, if a company is closing down they will throw out all sorts of stationery, office equipment etc. I got a "broken" laser printer in 2005 (admittedly this was from another company in the building where I worked, so I knew it was there in advance), put a new drum cartridge in it (£40, in the days when the worst brand-new laser printer would be over £150) and it's still working today. Admittedly I don't use it very much, not sure if I'll be able to get any more toner when my two cartridges run out.
Also, as OP has established, building sites are wasteful as fuck. They throw away stuff they simply can't be bothered to carry back to the van, sometimes. You can get unopened packs of all sorts, slightly-damaged (or just dirty) tools etc.

I had a couple friends that started a side business cleaning out sheds, garages,attics and basements. They had a van. So they got paid to clean out the spaces and to haul away the "trash". They sorted the stuff and then sold what they felt was salvageable at flea markets once or twice a month. They pulled down some decent money and double dipped.

why would you spend $50 month to sell a used scuffed up door no one wants. i love dumpster diving , but damn watch those storage prices.

used vacuums? good luck selling those. i bought a dyson for $50 and fixed it up , nice ass vacuum.

heres a better tip. grab every usable item out of dumpsters, house flips , etc. clean it up a little, document it, and donate it to charity. taking the donations off your taxes.

i second the guy talking about working as a house cleaner. the guy they hire when they want an entire house worth of crap gone. i did it once , just one old guy who died. he had 300 $30 shirts. i guess he just wore one after the other each day of the year. fuck laundry!

filled up an entire van full of household items. kept the good, donated the rest.

only problem now is that i found out im a hoarder. so now every week i try to get rid of 10 boxes of shit.
