2021.12.01 21:26 HeftyExchange2206 How can I monitor and block my kids technology? I'm an IT professional and I'm at a loss.
I work in IT. I used to work for a school as the school IT admin. Technology was a constant fight between me (I was a one man team) and 1,000 students. At the time, the only website we were really concerned with was Facebook. I was told to block it. I'd block it at a firewall level by fqdn and IPs. It would work, but the problem with kids is if you do one thing to block them, they will spend every living hour obsessing how to get past it. They will find a way. Usually what they'd do to get around it was to use a private vpn or proxy server. I'd discover the kids were using one site to get around it. I'd block that. Then I have 1,000 kids trying to figure out the next way around it. They'd find another proxy server. I blocked them for months or years. It was never going to end between me blocking stuff and the kids finding a way around it.
Finally after years of this game, a Principal told me to just unblock it. We can't keep it blocked. The kids will always find a way around it. That's the problem I'm running into with my own kids. Everytime I'd put a block in, the kids would find a way round it. One way they did it was by just shutting off the phone and then booting into recovery mode and wiping the phone so they could login again and they'd have no blocks or monitoring. I then tried to get creative. I wrote a script that I ran on their phones as a scheduled task. It constantly pinged an IP address. If the pings failed for over 5 minutes, it sent me an email letting me know that something is up. If they defaulted it, they didn't know how to setup the scheduled task to start the pings again.
But then they started getting around the blocks without defaulting the phone. I control their time and access to apps using Google's family link. I don't know how they do it, but I'll shut off their phone so all apps are blocked. I then go back into the app 30 minutes later and it's unblocked and no time restrictions at all. I ask them how are they removing time restrictions. They just play dumb and say they don't know what I'm talking about. They shouldn't know my Google password. I change it semi often and I generate the password using a password generator that is 16 characters alphanumeric with symbols. If they're figuring out that password, I'm impressed.
I'm completely at a loss of what to do to block stuff and keep my kids safe. My one daughter now has been re-admitted to a behavioral health hospital and she says it's because of the anxiety from stuff like online, but she says she can't control it.
A few years ago, one of my daughters was playing in the woods. It just happened to be a time when I allowed her to have a phone. She fell in the woods and broke her femur. The only reason I knew is she called me screaming. If she didn't have the phone, she would've just lied in the woods screaming. I want the kids to have a phone for safety. But, I can't find a way to block stuff. I tried flip phones. Flip phones have browsers in them. It's a pain, but the kids used it and caught on quick. I can't block a built in browser on a flip phone that is using 4G for browsing. So, a flip phone was worse than a smart phone. We've tried taking their phones away and they find a way to find them. We hid them in a gun safe. They were so determined they found a way into the gun safe with loaded guns just to get their phones. This is a serious addiction. I'm totally at a loss of what to do to get this under control. But we tried to block the kids from technology. But, I told my wife technology is only becoming more and more integrated with our lives. Us trying to ignore technology and pretend it doesn't exist will not work.
My wife is looking at me for a solution. But, I said to her, I'm an IT professional that went to school for this stuff. I can't imagine a banker or a factory worker gives their kids a phone and then loads some software on it but then customizes it like crazy with custom code to block all of the work arounds. They're just installing the monitoring app and using the default. Either their kids aren't trying hard enough, or their parents are clueless to what they're doing to get around it.

2021.12.01 21:26 ericwhat Looking to get the min and max dates in a data set per value in another cell
Trying to make a formula that will pull in the min/max date per Phase listed in the sample table below. The end goal is to use it to make a gantt chart of the overall phases in Google Data Studio, where I'm pulling a bunch of different sheets worth of data together to make a report. I don't know GDS super well (yet) so I'm thinking of creating a sheet in my original workbook, plop some formulas in there to grab the min/max per phase into a table, and then blend that data into my GDS report so I can use it there.
Example of what I want in a cell:
Min date for "Planning" phase = 1/1/22
Max date for "Planning" phase = 1/10/22
Min date for "Build" = 1/11/22
Max date for "Build" = 1/25/22
|Project Sign Off||Planning||1/6/22||1/10/22|
|Go Live||Go Live||2/6/22||2/10/22|

Although my Gifter already saw my information and my message, he did not respond with much enthusiasm. For my part, I have already bought the things for the couple that they selected for me and I am only waiting for the order to be processed to be able to place the shipping guide.
I only hope to receive a gift, as this is the first time I have done this. It would make me very happy if it were like this :)

2021.12.01 21:25 Sucxces_93 I see colorful line (1,2mm). It looks like colorful pixels. This thing appeared after cleaning display with alcohol substance (popular brand 3mk) I doubt it’s a real pixel cause I cleaned my display really gently and softly. I am afraid of my display.. I see this line on every color of display.
2021.12.01 21:25 Skyrim_nerd___ Friend needed some advice and wanted to use my reddit account cuz for whatever reason she can’t post on here for now, wants to know if you guys think she’s “transphobic” or not or whatever
Copy and pasted from Whatsapp:
Was I transphobic for telling another teen online that they should be careful taking transition hormones cuz they can be VERY harmful to her body ? I didn’t say she couldn’t transition, I didn’t say anything like that, all I said there’s healthy ways to do it and there’s filling yourself with hormones that could be potentially dangerous and harmful to your body, she threw a tantrum and i left the group chat over it, now they’re trash talking me (don’t ask me how ik but, but just to show that I knew what I was talking about here’s the official google discription for taking that exact hormone:
“The risk factors and side effects associated with use include: increase in Blood clots: which can cause stroke, heart attack, and even death. Cancer: may increase your risk of certain cancers, specifically breast cancer.”

2021.12.01 21:25 Wild-Ad-4692 1 out of my ten ghost shrimp is showing signs off illness
I have a 14 gallon tank, 1 Betta, 1 nerite zebra snail, and 10 ghost shrimp. I've noticed that only 1 of my shrimp out of them ten is showing weird behavior. She's all white, keeps bumping her head against the glass wall, keeps glass surfing, and doesn't really roam around the tank like the other shrimp do. The other nine are doing just fine, keeping busy, roaming around. What's happening?

2021.12.01 21:25 devotiings First time user!! (prescribed) but is it too much?
based on what ive read, most people take pretty small doses of lorazepam. I was prescribed 100mg 3x daily as of today and im scared now because google shows most people take like, 0.5mg? Did i just read the wrong stuff? Are there any side effects I should know about? My doctor failed to mention any side effects of my other prescriptions and it was kind of bad… they were really unexpected so i just want to be prepared with this one! He gave it to me to help with ouid withdrawal, mood stabilizing (for my BPD), and to help me sleep (i can’t sleep a lot due to anxious thoughts)

2021.12.01 21:25 hced Proper Strategy for Resetting Prefs Then Getting Things Back as they Were
I briefly touched upon Maya back in 2005, then let it be for a good chunk of 16 years up until starting a 3d bachelor this year being enforced picking it up again. If memory serves me correctly, all that jazz about deleting prefs were prevalent back then, even?
Anyway. Seemingly everywhere – and I even stumble across this in Autodesk's official help channels – there's (still?) this mantra when things go awry: "try deleting your preferences"...
...and here's where my consult Reddit begins. I for one, do not like the sound of deleting my prefs without first knowing there's a solid, trusted method getting my adjustments and whatnot back in order after doing so. So, basically, how do you people deal with this frequent recommended procedure. Is there a way to "delete your preferences" – accomplishing the wipe-everything-that's-corrupt-task – and then re-fetch whatever careful tweaks and customizations you've made?
