Thoughts on new build?

2023.04.01 13:53 Lennyyy_ Thoughts on new build?

Recently my good ol' GTX 970 died on me after almost 8 years of service, so I've been thinking about taking this opportunity to build a new computer from scratch. This is the build I've come up with:
PCPartPicker Part List
Type Item Price
CPU AMD Ryzen 5 7600X 4.7 GHz 6-Core Processor €255.50 @ Amazon Italia
Motherboard MSI MPG B650I EDGE WIFI Mini ITX AM5 Motherboard €263.45 @ Amazon Italia
Memory Corsair Vengeance 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR5-5600 CL36 Memory €138.44 @ Amazon Italia
Video Card ASRock Radeon RX6700XT CLP 12GO Radeon RX 6700 XT 12 GB Video Card €369.00
Case Cooler Master NR200P MAX Mini ITX Tower Case €365.98 @ Amazon Italia
Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts
Total €1392.37
Generated by PCPartPicker 2023-04-01 13:48 CEST+0200
I will mainly use it to play competitive FPS games (such as Overwatch or Rainbow Six Siege) with a [email protected] monitor. I went with a Mini-ITX case because I really like the idea of having a more compact build, and I opted for an AMD GPU instead of going with one from NVIDIA because I will also dual boot Linux on top of Windows and I've heard that the experience is much more pleasant with an AMD card. Do you think this build will suit my needs and, more importantly, will I run into any compatibility issues?
Thank you in advance!

2023.04.01 13:26 Forsaken-Garlic4818 money diary: I‘m 28, live in Boston, make roughly $70k as a 👩🏼‍🏫 and everyone is ragey at work this week! (emoji-style baby)

part 1: net worth
positive net worth
category #shesworthsomething
💹 15,700 Roth IRA, not much but it’s honest work. I wasn’t able to contribute last year but sent $1400 this month. Don’t think I will max this year but will do what I can.
📱 1,400 457, not even sure why I contribute to this ($50/paycheck)
📈 25,100 Pension – cash value not super relevant here. 11% mandated contribution
💰 7,100 checking
🤑 3,000 HYSA @ 4.25%
➕ 52,300 we keep it positive around here
category oops, she’s in debt again
💷 -45,203 Private student loan @ 4.79%, paid biweekly but sending extra $
💸 -72,957 Undergrad Stafford + grad @ 5.2%. halfway done with PSLF!
➖ 118,160 😬 (but it looks worse on paper!)
category ah, but what about the house?
🏡 362,000 Purchase price, spring 2022, ginormous (income-restricted) condo
💸 -317,026.81 Mortgage #1 balance @ 2.75%
♊ -23,431.95 Mortgage #2 balance @ 0%, down-payment assistance paid in full at end of mortgage or resale
➕ 21,541.24 Equity including both mortgages, since not including #2 feels disingenuous
NET WORTH: -45,672.46
part 2: income
Nothing exciting here as a public school teacher. My salary is fixed and the entire internet can figure out exactly how much I make. Next year I will apply to be a new teacher mentor to move over a lane (6% raise while I do the job). We won a great raise in our last contract so we can finally be paid almost as much as everyone around us!
This is my 5th year teaching but am on step 6 of 11 due to a full year internship.
read my paycheck and weep
pay schedule: 24 paychecks a year (NOT 26), biweekly Fridays with the exception of holidays and the final day of school, where you receive paychecks 22, 23, 24 and are expected to make that last late June through early September
each paycheck is different, so let’s do paycheck #1
💹 2,935.83 gross
💊 -37.14 medicare (but not SS)
👩🏼‍⚕️ -325.65 PPO, I get sick often and in unexpected places
🦷 -42.97 dental
👓 -5.91 vision
📱 -50 457 contribution
🚕 -184.19 federal withholding
🚖 -114.32 state withholding
📈 -322.94 pension withholding
➕ 1,852.71 behold, how little of my take home I get to actually enjoy
Now paycheck #2
💹 2,935.83 gross
💊 -48.01 medicare (but not SS)
📱 -50 457 contribution
🚕 -323.86 federal withholding
🚖 -151.79 state withholding
📈 -322.94 pension withholding
💪🏼 -87 union power, baby
➕ 1,952.23 Also known at work as “the good paycheck”
For those keeping track at home, my monthly gross is typically 5,871.66 and my net is typically 3,804.94
Why typically?
part 3: please enjoy my emoji'd YNAB categories
category 💲 PAY DEM BILLZ
🏡 1343.38 Putting the PIT in mortgage…or something like that. The other I is paid separately
⛲ 167 HOA
🔐 68.16 Was not required to have insurance at closing. Don’t be stupid like me.
🎓 0 fed loans, thanks Grandpa Joe. I think this will be about $250/m when it starts up again. PSLF date late 2028
⛽ 31 YNAB tells me this is my average since moving to my house. Grateful to have big windows and a “put a sweater on” childhood upbringing – touched the heat twice this year
🔌 50 Averaged to include spicy hot summer months (it was 34 this month)
💻 39.95 interwebs
🏫 412.92 Private loan, paid biweekly (so if it’s a rare 3 payment month it’s more). The minimum monthly payment is something like $316, but I’m sending an extra $50 to get some benefit from the power of compound interest. 4.79% is not a make or break rate. Payoff 2034 but hope this can happen sooner.
📰 12.50 NYT Academic rate
🚊 90 Monthly pass
🍿 15.99 Somebody needs to pay the HBO Max

👗 0 I haven’t bought new clothes in a while and it’s starting to show.
🤸🏼‍♀️ 85 trampoline class
👩🏼‍⚕️ 60 YNAB tells me my average is 60/mo, but this is overinflated due to an MRI in November that I will only have to do once more time. I’m usually at the urgent care or a specialist doctor 1x/month (this month: a UTI), so it’s more like 30
🪑 40 Hard to quantify. Since I moved in, I had a free couch moved ($200), bought a very nice TV ($750), a vacuum ($250), filters for vacuum ($30), and the world’s nicest washer ($1900). So YNAB is telling me a horrifying $400/mo, but let’s call it 40 going forward
🌷 0 I was a good urban balcony gardener, but no balcony. Waiting for a community garden spot, hopefully next year
🍉 250 Includes booze and small household things (TP, paper towels, dish soap)
🥾 30 Am avid hiker and rollerblader. Averaged cost of trip incidentals like carpool or snacks, admission to roller rink
💊 55 3 lifesaving medicines (25/mo + 10/mo + 30 as needed) + 10 for whatever medicine needed for illness of the month (10 for antibiotics this month). Every year I get a new epi-pen for 10 or 30. This month was more like 85 because my pharmacy accidentally sent me a med I have plenty of.
500 rough guesstimate

🦷 86.35 🕛 2250 Saving ½ of estimated costs for Invisalign – never had braces as a kid and now my teeth are pretty bad. Hoping to start May 2024. There is unfortunately no savings for paying everything upfront so I’m saving ½ now and expecting a monthly payment around 150/mo during the treatment.
➖390.50 🕛 4,686 Ignoring the Roth IRA

category 💲 very big savings
🌆 428.57 3k goal by August 2023 (current balance: 850), “No August pay” – we don’t get paid in August and the first week of September so setting aside money specifically for this without feeling guilty for draining my emergency fund
🕐 300 (181.82 since I’m ahead) Homeowner’s 1% Warchest, it’s exactly what it sounds like. For any and all home expenses (things breaking or projects). Current balance: 2k
🛑 140.91 Building back EF, goal is 3k by December 2023 (current balance: 1.7k). I know this is low but my job is hilariously stable. I will try to add another month in 2024.

category 💲 fun money!

🚝 70 (paused) Travel fund contribution, but full at 350. BFF getting married in VT in August so hoping to turn it into a girl’s weekend with another BFF
🎮 65 (paused) General video game fund – keep it topped up at 65 in case a new game drops OR if multiple games go on sale. I try to only buy games on deep sale
🎮 12.99 Final Fantasy XIV sub, I’ll retire someday
👯‍♀️ 50 Anything with friends, including eating out with them. usually 100 in the summer
🍦 30 “eating out” aka solo treats for myself (breakfast at dunks, small treats)
🎊 10 events happening that we want to go to not already covered, averaged.
➖ 202.99 Not including travel and video games since that’s topped up
If you add up the categories, I’m in the red and I’m well aware of it – not for much longer though, as I’m saving really aggressively. 😊
part 4: el diario
Day 1 – Saturday
🌅 gotta get dad to the ballet! 4.80
👯‍♀️ brunch with daddy-o before the ballet, I provide the tickets but he pays for brunch. his wallet is hurting because he only just got paid at his new job, so I kick in 20
👀 because brunch is attached to a swanky hotel and it’s PAX east wknd. 0 for free entertainment
🥤 my father requests a water bottle before the show. 6
🩰 don q, my 3rd time and dad’s 1st. Very good, but very long. 0 because these are volunteer comps

🧼 the casita before the week starts
total: 30.80
Day 2 – Sunday
💤 lazy Sunday morning (dw, I’m still up at 6). Read the NYT cover to cover then play 🎮
🚊 meeting a friend of a friend to help her do taxes but I’m early
📖 it’s gorgeous out so I photosynthesize in the BPL courtyard with my book club book
⛔ the wifi is too slow for us to do taxes so we pack up and 🚶🏼‍♀️ down newbury st until we settle at trident
👯‍♀️ I supervise her taxes, and eat a late lunch (grilled cheese w/ avo and tomato). 22.15
🍉 make the mistake of dragging this poor girl with me to the postage stamp sized TJ’s. and it’s 5:15. one does not shop here so much as get in line at the beginning & pick what you want as you go. a tall person fetches me frozen arepas. I come in right on budget so I’m pleased. 57.52
👋🏼 & 🚊 home to plan my week and decompress with 🎮 and 📖
Total: 79.67
Day 3 – Monday
🌅 it’s just before 6 and birds are happy, but now I am taking the 🚍 to work
🌉 stuck on the bus with my BOSS because a 🚢 is passing through the drawbridge. at least we can now fill out 90 second walk from the bus to dunks with acceptable new england small talk subjects (weather, transit, and sports) before she dips to get coffee
😡 the youth, because tomorrow & wednesday are standardized testing. sorry kids, I don’t make the schedule!

Day 4 – Tuesday
🌅 hello, happy birds as I walk to the 🚍
🔥 the computers are not charged for testing. teenagers have been divested of all electronics and are not allowed to talk to each other. mayhem approaching in 3 … 2 … 1 …
🤬 nonstatus (male) colleague uses a work group text thread to refer to an unknown female colleague as the b-word. mayhem continues

total: 68.16
Day 5 – Wednesday
🌅 please go away, very loud mourning dove
🍎 computers are charged, the youth are not. Mr. Insult has decided not to come to work today (probably for the best?)
🤬 is there something in the water?! another nonstatus teacher informs me that two of my students are talking to each other in the hallway and are not following her instructions which tbh is a day that ends in Y. important context: her instruction is in English and they only understand Spanish. I send them back to their testing rooms and she says, “when students ignore me and continue to speak in a language they know I don’t understand, they are being assholes” UM! GOODBYE!!!
😡 before I say something I regret I turn heel and inform my boss of this interaction. she takes a breath and thanks me for letting her know
😤 this is me taking a calming inhale / exhale before returning to staring at children
🏹 when I am proctoring (read: not allowed to read, grade, do work, browse the interweb), I like to imagine how the hunger games would go down if these kids were in it. the odds are in this room’s favor overall.
👩🏼‍🏫 these miserable youth are forced into a half day of classes, so we conference about grades and I let them have some free time
🏕 run weekly outdoors club for the youth. one student informs me a teacher refuses to sign a permission slip & doesn’t know why. make mental note to find this person and politely inquire. students make a great poster of images from our last trip and practice map skills
✌🏼 at 3:30 to get the 🚂 to then get on the 🚊 to go to 🤸🏼‍♀️ … it sounds awful but it all goes pleasantly smoothly, especially given how the T has been. class is great, lots of one-legged kicking on the trampoline. this is my 2nd week in a row of going from 2x class a week to 3x and it’s a tough adjustment. 0
🚶🏼‍♀️ to the 🚊 with M., who can’t make it to class on Friday – sad!
💊 the medicine I didn’t ask for but keeps coming has arrived. Note to self to call pharmacy and ask them to stop, but says 0 refills. Not a total waste because I KNOW I will get bronchitis again & need this. 10
🍿 paid for to keep my mother happy 15.99
🍴 eat leftover stew and 📞 my mother and best friend T. to debrief this very strange day
🎮 and 📖 before bed
Total: 25.99
Day 6 – Thursday
🌅 ahoy! Run into coworker D. on the 🚍 who gets coffee at dunks. I am feeling weak and acquire some 🥑🍞 3.69
🤝🏼 find this teacher who refuses to sign permission slip (who is also new). his reasons are very valid and we agree on conditions the student needs to fulfill to attend trip. hooray, adults being civil!
🤬 that’s it, something is in the water. two best friends in 3rd hour begin a heated verbal altercation about … a girl? in the middle of my class?? One kid takes off so I call security to let them know he would benefit from a check-in. the other student begins texting threats to his buddy and goes off on me when I tell him to stop. what is happening?!
👼🏼 boy returns with security at end of class, so I walk him to dean to process. 35 minutes later dean says everything is gucci and no more problems. hormones, man.
✌🏼 please get me out of here
💻 bill is paid 39.95
👵🏼 our weekly call (she is my only grandparent and is not doing well)
👨🏼 weekly call with father, who still likes his new job
🍜 leftover stew and Mandalorian with my 👩🏼 (we live text each other). finally, a good space battle!
🎮 and 📖 to decompress along with a long hot 🚿
total: 43.64
Day 7 – Friday
🌅 I don’t think I can do this today.
🧘🏼‍♀️ It has been such a frustrating week (there was another incident that happened that I can’t even reference due to state law/FERPA) that was incredibly traumatic and draining.
📱 to best friend T. and work friend R. to ask what they would do. Both endorse me taking a day off after this wild week.
🎮 and 📖 along with some stretching. 📞 with best friend E. to catch up on her wedding prep and life
🤑 payday! Good paycheck since it’s the 3rd of the month, but it might be missing hours from club. I won’t know until I see my paystub on Monday. +2,183.48 (+50 to 457, +322.94 to pension)
💸 ah, but it’s also the 31st. easy come, easy go 🏡 (1343.38) and ⛲ (167)
🚊 to 🤸🏼‍♀️ to a really 🔥 class. Learn the name of the girl next to me on Fridays who also brings her inhaler and it turns out we’re both teachers!
🍦 take a nice mozzarella sandwich home from tatte 13.97
🚊, 🍴, 🚿, 📖, 🎮
Total: 1,524.35
Grand totals:
reflection: typical week money-wise in terms of reflecting my non-house spending – I’m saving really aggressively right now and don’t have a lot of money for discretionary spending. Even if I did, I’m very much a homebody during the work week. My job is probably more stressful than most as a baseline but this week was truly unbelievably bad. Still, looking through the week and taking time to step back I realize just how quality my support network is and for that I'm very grateful.

2023.04.01 13:15 AutoModerator April Hardware Thread.

Here is a monthly thread about hardware.

You came here or were sent here because you're wondering/intending to buy some new hardware.
If you're comfortable picking motherboards and power supplies? You want buildapcvideoediting
A sub $1k or $600 laptop? We probably can't help. Prices change frequently. Looking to get it under $1k? Used from 1 or 2 years ago is a better idea.

General hardware recommendations

Desktops over laptops.
  1. i7 chip is where our suggestions start.. Know the generation of the chip. 12xxx is this year's chipset - and a good place to start. More or less, each lower first number means older chips. How to decode chip info.
  2. A video card with 2+GB of VRam. 4 is even better.
  3. An SSD is suggested - and will likely be needed for caching.
  4. Stay away from ultralights/tablets.
No, we're not debating intel vs. AMD, etc. This thread is for helping people - not the debate about this month's hot CPU. The top-of-the-line AMDs are better than Intel, certainly for the $$$. Midline AMD processors struggle with h264.
A "great laptop" for "basic only" use doesn't really exist; you'll need to transcode the footage (making a much larger copy) if you want to work on oldeunderpowered hardware.
We think the nVidia Studio System chooser is a quick way to get into the ballpark.

If you're here because your system isn't responding well/stuttering?

Action cam, Mobile phone, and screen recordings can be difficult to edit, due to h264/5 material (especially 1080p60 or 4k) and Variable Frame rate. Footage types like 1080p60, 4k (any frame rate) are going to stress your system. When your system struggles, the way that the professional industry has handled this for decades is to use Proxies. Wiki on Why h264/5 is hard to edit.
How to make your older hardware work? Use proxies Proxies are a copy of your media in a lower resolution and possibly a "friendlier" codec. It is important to know if your software has this capability. A proxy workflow more than any other feature, is what makes editing high frame rate, 4k oand h264/5 footage possible. Wiki on Proxy editing.
If your source was a screen recording or mobile phone, it's likely that it has a variable frame rate. In other words, it changes the amount of frames per second, frequently, which editorial system don't like. Wiki on Variable Frame Rate

Is this particular laptop/hardware for me?

If you ask about specific hardware, don't just link to it.
Tell us the following key pieces:

Some key elements

  1. GPUS generally don't help codec decode/encode.
  2. Variable frame rate material (screen recordings/mobile phone video) will usually need to be conformed (recompressed) to a constant frame rate. Variable Frame Rate.
  3. 1080p60 or 4k h264/HEVC? Proxy workflows are likely your savior. Why h264/5 is hard to play.
  4. Look at how old your CPU is. This is critical. Intel Quicksync is how you'll play h264/5.
See our wiki with other common answers.

Are you ready to buy? Here are the key specs to know:

Codec/compressoin of your footage? Don't know? Media info is the way to go, but if you don't know the codec, it's likely H264 or HEVC (h265).
Know the Software you're going to use
Compare your hardware to the system specs below. CPU, GPU, RAM.
Again, if you're coming into this thread exists to help people get working systems, not champion intel, AMD or other brands.

Apple Specific

If you're thinking Apple -

This the key article you want
The TL;DR? Here's the key info for people who are thinking of themselves as media professionals:
Pick Mobile or Desktop. Then it's about what meets your budget. Prices are indicated based on Apple's site in the US as of Feb 6, 2023. The details (such as cores or RAM) is so you can match the pricing.


What's most important is % of sRGB (rec 709) coverage. LED < IPS < OLEDs. Sync means less than size/resolution. Generally 32" @ UHD is about arm's length away.
And the color coverage has more to do with Can I see all the colors, not Is it color accurate. Accurate requires a probe (for video) alongside a way to load that into the monitor (not the OS.)

If you've read all of that, start your post/reply: "I read the above and have a more nuanced question:

2023.04.01 13:13 ClickClickBoom99 AITA Pizza party gate

I own a medium sized business, I employ just over 100 people.
I make sure to pay my staff well and give numerous benefits. One such benefit is a free-serve, free use cold salad and snack bar and one hot/catered meal a day if they come in to the office (most of my staff are free to WFH if they choose, about 50% do so between 25% to 75% person dependent). This isn't out of kindness of my heart, the company I pay to do the catered meals and provide the snacks/salad bar charge me less per person than any of my staff would be able to get (even if they prepped from home), it saves on time, waste etc. All round everyone wins in my opinion.
A few of my staff have dietary/allergy requirements. For the dietary requirement meals I generally pay x3 the price. For the allergy meals I pay x5 to x10 for the meals. This is fine, no one should be penalised imo. One employee, we'll call them Karen, stated to me she has a gluten allergy as such I arranged to have special meals for her.
Last week, the team Karen is part of just completed a project, as such I let the team choose what they want as a perk/reward (as well as a commission based bonus I should add), the team decided they wanted to pizza for a dinner then an event and drinks. Fair enough, I pay upfront for everything, ensuring the gluten free option is suitable for gluten allergies. Cue the event, I decide after I'm done at the office to pop my head in to say hi and then bye (no one wants the boss hanging around after all). Everyone is having a good time and I go to leave, as I do the manager pulls me aside and to give me a little ticking off as she had to prepare a separate area to make Karen's pizza for Karen to order just off the main menu as "Gluten free pizzas don't taste as good", the manager then enquired about her allergy and she said Karen told her she just doesn't like gluten and that she wasn't actually allergic. I leave the joint without confronting Karen as I didn't want to spoil the rest of the team's night.
Cue Monday, I pull Karen into my office and tell her what the manager said to me. Karen countered that the manager was lying and I asked why the manager would lie to which she had no reply. As such I said to Karen that this week's meals will be the last she has that are gluten free and that from now on she can order from the main menu the same as everyone else or provide her own meals. As well as this I told her I'd be downgrading the cold salad/snack bar to an option that doesn't guarantee no gluten cross-contamination. There were then some tears, I was called a dick and I was punishing her for a manager lying etc. I told her my decision was final and that's that.
Afterwards I checked with one of the other team members and asked them on the sly if what the manager said was true, they confirmed it was and I promised not to dob them in as confirming it.
That being said, Karen has created such a fuss this week that I am wondering Am I The Asshole?

Co-Working Spaces Is Essential For Your Success. Read This To Find Out Why
For a good reason, co-working spaces have become increasingly popular in recent years. These workspaces offer a unique and flexible solution for businesses of all sizes, providing various benefits that can help drive success. In this blog post, we'll explore why co-working spaces are essential for your success, with a focus on co-working spaces in Delhi.

co-working spaces
First and foremost, flexible spaces offer a cost-effective solution for businesses. Rather than investing in expensive office space, businesses can rent a workspace in a co-working facility for a fraction of the cost. This can be especially helpful for startups and small businesses, which may not have the resources to invest in their own workspace.
In addition to being cost-effective, co-working spaces offer a range of amenities that can help drive success. These amenities include high-speed internet, printing and scanning services, conference rooms, and more. By providing these amenities, co-working spaces can help businesses focus on their core activities and avoid the distractions and expenses associated with setting up and maintaining their own office. Workspace also offers flexibility in terms of lease length and office space size. This means businesses can scale up or down as needed, depending on their business needs. This flexibility is particularly valuable for businesses that experience fluctuations in demand or growth.
One of the biggest advantages of Workspace is the networking opportunities they provide. Office spaces bring together individuals and businesses from a range of industries and backgrounds, creating opportunities for collaboration, partnerships, and networking. This can be especially helpful for startups and small businesses that are looking to expand their networks and reach new customers.
Finally, the workspace offers a professional image for businesses. With modern and well-equipped facilities, businesses can impress clients and stakeholders with their workspace. This can help build credibility and trust, which can be critical for long-term success.
In conclusion, co-working spaces are essential for businesses of all sizes and industries. They offer a cost-effective solution, a range of amenities, flexibility, networking opportunities, and a professional image. If you're looking for co-working spaces in Delhi, there are plenty of options available, so be sure to do your research and find the space that's right for your business.

2023.04.01 13:03 AutoModerator Invoice System Questions Thread - April 2023

Are you running a business—especially one that doesn't file a consumption tax return? If so, this thread is for you.
From October 2023, the "Invoice System" (インボイス制度) will come into effect. Under this system, businesses that collect consumption tax (課税事業) without using the simplified taxation system (簡易課税制度) will no longer be able to claim a full tax credit with respect to purchases made from businesses that don't collect consumption tax (免税事業).
For the first three years, consumption-tax-collecting businesses not using the simplified taxation system will be able to claim only 80% of the credit they were previously entitled to. For the subsequent three years, they will be able to claim only 50%. And from October 2029, they will not be able to claim a credit at all.
This system requires consumption-tax-collectors (CTCs) to be able to distinguish between CTCs and non-CTCs. Accordingly, the government has introduced a registration system, whereby full consumption tax credits will only be available when the purchaser has possession of a "qualified invoice" (適格請求書) with respect to the purchase. And only CTCs who have registered with the NTA as a "qualified invoice issuer" (適格請求書発行事業者) can issue qualified invoices.
So for CTCs, the path forward is clear: register as a qualified invoice issuer before September 30 (see the registration flowchart in this PDF).
For non-CTCs, however, the future is less certain. If none of your customers are CTCs (e.g., because they are not businesses), or your CTC customers use the simplified taxation system, you probably don’t need to do anything. But if some of your customers are CTCs who don’t use the simplified tax system, those customers will prefer you to become a CTC and register as a qualified invoice issuer, so that they can continue to access a full tax credit.
So should you become a CTC and register as a qualified invoice issuer, as a favor to your CTC customers? The answer will be different for every business, and that's partly what this thread is for. (Though nothing in this thread is a substitute for professional advice, of course.)
A good starting point might be the eligibility criteria for non-CTC status. As described by the NTA here, newly-established businesses, and businesses with less than 10 million yen worth of annual revenue (excluding revenue that is not subject to consumption tax, and measured by reference to the year-before-last as well as the first half of last year), are eligible for non-CTC status. (Newly-established companies must also have capital of less than 10 million yen to be eligible.)
So if your business is very close to having 10 million yen worth of annual revenue, you may need to become a CTC soon regardless of your customers' preferences. In that case, it could make sense to become a CTC and a qualified invoice issuer from October.
Also, if a lot of your business's revenue is derived from transactions that are not subject to consumption tax (e.g., exports, provision of services to non-residents), becoming a CTC could be financially advantageous, because your consumption tax credits may exceed your consumption tax liability.
However, if you are not in either of those situations, you may be understandably reluctant to take on the administrative and financial burden of becoming a CTC. In that case, how should you handle customers who are unhappy that you can't issue qualified invoices?
First, it’s important to note that the Fair Trade Commission has said that telling a supplier you will stop doing business with them unless they become a CTC can constitute “abuse of a superior bargaining position” (優越的地位の濫用), which is illegal under the Anti-Monopoly Law. The same applies to unilaterally imposing a discounted price on a supplier because they are not a CTC. So don’t take it for granted that your customers can simply force you to become a CTC (or force you to provide them with a discount).
That said, to maintain a healthy business relationship with your customers, you may choose to discount your prices slightly instead of becoming a CTC. Note that for the first three years of the Invoice System, your CTC customers can still claim 80% of the full credit, so there is no need to offer a discount of anything close to 10% (the consumption tax rate). A 1% or 2% discount may be more appropriate, at least initially.
If you choose to become a CTC and register as a qualified invoice issuer, you can apply through e-Tax, which takes about 3 weeks, or in person at your local NTA office, which takes about 2 months. This video made by the NTA explains how to apply using e-Tax, and the paper form is available here (PDF).
The NTA maintains a directory of qualified invoice issuers here, so be aware that your name will be published on that site if you register. But if you are a sole proprietor, your address will not be published unless you expressly ask the NTA to publish it (see here).
Finally, anyone considering becoming a CTC should be aware of the simplified taxation system and the 20% taxation system.
The simplified taxation system is a way of being a CTC without having to do complex bookkeeping. Specifically: instead of claiming tax credits with respect to your actual purchases, you are allowed to claim a tax credit equal to a percentage of the consumption tax liability on your revenue (excluding revenue derived from transactions that are not subject to consumption tax). The exact percentage depends on the type of business you have, but 50% is the figure for most people in the service industry, for example. To use the simplified taxation system it is necessary to have less than 50 million yen worth of revenue, and to apply in advance (submit this form to your local NTA office).
The 20% taxation system is something that was introduced in the most recent round of tax reform, as a way to encourage more businesses to become CTCs. It applies to anyone who becomes a CTC on or after October 1, and does not require an application in advance. Under this system, CTCs are allowed to claim a tax credit equal to 80% of the consumption tax liability on their revenue, regardless of their actual purchases or the rate that applies to them under the simplified taxation system. This creates a baseline worst-case-scenario for all businesses becoming CTCs, ensuring that no business can lose more than 2% (technically ~1.82%) of its revenue as a result of becoming a CTC. This system is set to expire in 2026.

2023.04.01 13:02 nyxphilic Moving from Nitro 5 to Crosshair

Hi y'all!
I'm a Nitro 5 user (AN 515-55) and I'm tired of the bad and poor performance I have with this PC. I was watching other laptops and I found the Msi Crosshair 15 b12uez-484it. I'm not a fan of the yellow color - seems that is a common thing actually - I've watched some benchmarks on youtube and seems to be a great laptop, running a lot of games at high quality with decent fps. Is it worth it? Or can you suggest me a better msi laptop at the same price? My budget is 1000€ - 1500€ max. I will use it for gaming, music and graphics.

2023.04.01 13:00 belangem And they don’t stop coming, and they don’t stop coming…

Hey now! What a week! SPY up 3.5% and finally out of the no man’s land at 390-400. No idea how long this will last but I’ll enjoy it for now. ENVX ended the week up 32% (up 38% since my DD) so that sure helped my port quite a bit! ATVI up 1.4% with wacky action on leap calls (more on that later). Will this hold? Absolutely no idea. But the bears keep feeding the beast with puts and until they really capitulate, we could see another leg up to the 420s. No, I’m not a perma bull and I do know that technical or not, we will see some kind of a pullback. Below 4000? I’m almost entirely convinced. 3900? Maybe. 3800? It could happen, but more around May OPEX/post OPEX. Below 3800? It’s getting difficult, the longer we stay above no man’s land…
I did make some moves on Friday: bought DIS, BAC and a bit more ATVI and TSLQ right at close. I have BAC on a short leash with a stop at it’s 52w low and DIS with a stop 10% from close. I wanted to rebuy QCOM but I don’t think this is a good entry. It’s still on top of my buy list with more of everything I have. My protective ENVX puts are getting killed but at least I have a firm floor on my shares so I’m marking off this position right away. Au revoir! I’m hoping for another TSLA rally on EV numbers this weekend so I can double down on TSLQ. Everyone keeps talking about how NVDA or even AAPL are overvalued, but the king of deceit is still Elon’s poney.
Ok I had promised to share my investing routine with you, so here it is:
Weekdays: - Wake up at 6ish - Check Futures - Check my stocks pre-market - Check any Twitter and Reddit content notifications (mainly Vaz and a few folks on Twitter) - Catch up my entire Twitter feed of missed tweets since the night before - Catch up missed posts on a couple of Discords I frequent - TwitteDiscord/SPX chart until open particularly if there’s economic data at 8:30
Afterhours: - Post daily message on Reddit - Check futures at open - Catch up with missed tweets/Discords again - Check Vitards - Check WSB for 5 minutes - Check BTC - Read articles / Tweets / Reddit posts / etc - Plan trades for the next day (if any)
Weekends: - Update portfolio, note next week’s trades - Write weekly post - Check weekly/monthly charts of my watchlist - Do in-depth research if I have any - Check next week’s earnings/research
I don’t do much during market hours as I am busy so I have SPX 5-min or 15-min chart up and that’s about it. I also have a bunch of price alerts set up on a bunch of stocks, either for buy or sell signals.
As you have seen in my daily routine, I have a lot of Twitter checking in there. I rarely do any social comments here but man, that place is getting more toxic every day. I won’t debate who’s right or wrong but I see some human behaviour that straight up disgust me. We seem to live in a society where a majority of people seem to feel ostracized or victims of a system or a group of people that they can’t even name. Example: who and why the fuck would you celebrate when a struggling company is forcing employees to come in the office in person full time vs have a flexible work arrangement? Like what are those people gaining by seeing others have their benefits taken away and cheering it up. I’m using the remote example but that goes on for every benefit another person has. Like because you see other people lose a benefit makes you feel better about your miserable life? This behaviour so far away from my values but when I see that, I almost want to step out of this society and let these people deal with their misery. Anyways, not sure why it got to me so much but we could all use a little change.
Back to stonks: I’m VERY puzzled about the recent move in January ‘24 ATVI calls. I gave it a lot of thought and I still don get it. Like, why can you sell 95c covered calls for $2.50 per share when the buyout price is $95? I only see one reason: if the acquisition gets delayed again, ATVI might be able to negotiate a higher acquisition price, even more since they had fantastic earnings. But the odds of this scenario seem very low compared to the $2.50 premium. At this point I would say there is 30% chance the deal fails, 60% it goes through as is at $95 and 10% it gets renegotiated at a higher price ($100 - $105?). I mean you can even buy 100 shares of ATVI at 85.59 and immediately sell Jan 85c at $8.85 for a 10% gain. And if the deal fails? You end up with 100 ATVI shares at a cost basis of $76.74. 🤷‍♂️
Some important data next week, mostly around jobs & unemployment but still no CPI not FOMC (next is in May) in this short week. I think the market likes to do what would fuck the most people and as such, a week of chop / slight move up would be it I think. I feel 100% confortable with my port: CASH.TO that can only go up, ATVI a very non-volatile arbitrage play, ENVX shares protected by slightly OTM puts and a bunch of boomerish positions with stops like CVS, DIS and BAC. Oh, I am back in my small biotech after a very volatile week but a super small position that I already written off. As usual, I will be on the hunt for my next play but really not in a rush now as it’s hard to find either long or short candidates outside those I already have. I do like COIN/BTC and TSLA as shorts: I don’t see how these would be higher in September than they are today. Anyways, I feel good with the little cushion I built this week. Alright, let’s get the show on and get paid! Cheers!

2023.04.01 12:59 FelicitySmoak_ On This Day In Michael Jackson HIStory - April 1st

Disclaimer: Some of these have unknown April dates. They are identified with a '*'
1968 - The J5 perform at a campaign rally for Richard Hatcher in Gary with Bobby Taylor and Diana Ross & The Supremes among others. Hatcher was the first African-American mayor of Gary, Indiana for 20 years, from 1968 to 1988. At the time of his first election on November 7, 1967, he and Carl Stokes were the first African-Americans to be elected mayors of a U.S. city with more than 100,000 people*
1970 - The J5 rehearse for their first concert tour, which would start on May 2nd*
1971 - The Jackson 5 play at the Mid-South Auditorium, Memphis, Tennessee
1972 - J5's cover of Bobby Day's “Little Bitty Pretty One” is released by Motown. It is also the first song where you can clearly hear Marlon's voice. It will reach #13 on the Hot 100*
1981- Michael does backing vocals on Carole Bayer Sager’s song “Just Friends”. Michael had previously recorded Sager's "It's the Falling in Love" for Off the Wall. He was visiting Carole in the studio when she invited him to join the session. He came up with such a special part on the Bacharach/Sager composition "Just Friends" that they happily offered him a co-production credit*
1985 - Michael and seven members of USA For Africa are on the cover of Life Magazine
1987 - Michael withdraws from The Jeovah’s Witness, a step that normally means he must be shunned by family members and friends who remain in the religious sect.
A representative of the Woodland Hills congregation where Jackson belonged said that the entertainer “disassociated” himself from the congregation and “no longer wants to be known as a Jehovah’s Witness.”
The official would not state what the implications of “disassociation” are, but when asked if they are serious, he responded, “Correct.”
Though Jackson’s anti-drug stance in public appearances was in keeping with the Witnesses’ clean-living codes, the entertainer’s Grammy-winning album Thriller produced tensions with the sect leaders in 1983 because of allegations the record and short film encouraged occult beliefs*
1988 - Michael plays the last of three nights at the Civic Center in Hartford, Connecticut
The story of Anne Miner: Anne is a great-grandmother who never attended a rock concert and prefers Big Band-era music. She says she is 'excited' about going to see Michael Jackson with tickets she won from a radio station but plans on taking cotton with her for her ears
'I'm excited. It's a chance of a lifetime experience,' said Anne Miner, 70. 'How many times are you going to see Michael Jackson in concert?'
The Greenfield woman, who admitted her favorite group was the Glenn Miller Band, big in the 1940s, won the tickets in a Michael Jackson Trivia Contest sponsored by WHAI radio and the Pepsi Co.
A chauffeur-driven white stretch limousine complete with champagne were to pick up Miner and a guest at her home and drive them to Hartford Civic Center in Connecticut and back.
She even considered wearing her old black-leather coat to the concert. She intends to go with her 20-year-old nephew, Michael J. Smith.
Smith said he prefers hard-rock bands like Bon Jovi over Jackson, but still expected to enjoy the concert. 'I'm just glad (Jackson) doesn't wear that white glove anymore.'
The two were given floor seats worth $22.50 each to the concert, which sold out just hours after tickets went on sale.
To earn the tickets, Miner answered three questions:
Miner said she determined Jackson's record label was Epic by going to a record store and that she learned his hometown was Gary, Indiana at the Greenfield Public Library. She admitted she guessed that Diana Ross was the celebrity who discovered him
'I'm always winning something,' said Miner, a retired waitress of 41 years. She said she's a compulsive contest player who occasionally gambles on the Massachusetts State Lottery and always buys raffle tickets.
Miner said she has seen Jackson 'shaking around' on television and thinks he is a lot like Elvis Presley, but adds he 'looks like a girl.'
1989 -Michael is on the cover of Ebony magazine.
1989 - Filming of "Liberian girl" short film takes place over 2 days. Veteran video director, Jim Yukich, was brought in to help craft a memorable clip.
“CBS Epic called and Michael Jackson wants to do a video for this song ‘Liberian Girl’ and I hadn’t heard this song yet,” said Yukich. “I’m thinking like ‘Off the Wall’ or ‘Rock with You’ or just I figure it will be one of those classic Michael Jackson killer songs, right? And ‘Liberian Girl’ is not a killer song. It’s funny — what do you do? So again, we’re throwing the kitchen sink at it, and so I pitched the idea to Michael that we would have him shoot the video while all these are people waiting to begin the video, and they don’t realize it until the end is that he’s directing.”
“He loved the idea. We started calling people, and we just called in favors from friends. I had just done a television special with Richard Dreyfuss, and Richard said he’d love to be in it. He said, ‘Can I call up Steven?’ and I said, ‘Steven who?’ and he said ‘Steve Spielberg and Amy Irving, and I said, “Yeah!” So he called Spielberg and Amy, and then you start calling people saying you have these people, and I’d start naming names and it was easy. It was very easy to get people because as soon as you get a couple of big names, everybody wants to be in it.”
The shooting day basically consisted of Yukich and his crew filming all the celebrities on a soundstage as they wait for Michael to show up. The final list of guest stars served as, in retrospect, a truly strange snapshot of that year in showbusiness.Comedy writers were given the task of writing some interesting things for the cast to say on camera while they waited.
“So we just had two days, and we had the live audio with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John doing the scene when they sang together, and they hadn’t sang together onscreen since ‘Grease’, so it was something to do that, and we just shot this grand stuff of people talking, and the outtakes are incredible because it’s just people talking. The song is not even playing! It’s just great getting all these stars in a room and you’re just filming and they’re saying, ‘What are you supposed to do?’ and we’d say, ‘We’ll get back to you,’ and you’d just mike everybody and shoot stuff.”
Yukich said that in a room filled with stars, Steven Spielberg’s uneasiness on the other side of the camera was the biggest surprise. Yukich used a push-pull camera shot on Spielberg, who was the director that made that camera shot popular, hence its industry nickname – 'The Jaws Shot'
“He was nervous. We did that push-pull move for that shot, and he was more nervous than I was, you know, being on camera. He wanted to try to do this favor for Michael because he wanted Michael for a movie.” Yukich also said that working with Michael was an amazing experience, but required some on-set preparation.
“Incredible,” he said. “I mean, at first, it was funny because he sent his handlers in first, and they check, and they said he is coming in 10 minutes. They go in all the different rooms to make sure that no bombs were there and there were no fans hanging out, and they kicked people out, and it was almost like going through airport security or something. They basically kicked people out there who weren’t supposed to be there, and they bring in a microwave oven with bananas for Bubbles the monkey and Max which was the baby monkey. It was like a real rigmarole, and then when he showed up, you know, he was unbelievably nice. Such a pleasant person and a nice guy.”
Jackson also had only one request involving the removal of a person from the final cut.“He called me a couple of times after he saw the edit. He would make us do some things, like he took out David Spade. David Spade was in the original cut. He called me up and he said, ‘Jim, this is Michael,’ and you think somebody was fooling with you, basically. You would never know if it was really him until he started talking about specifics and you could say, okay, that is Michael. So he called us up and he on a walkie-talkie phone or something, or he’s up in Santa Barbara, and says, ‘You know, in 3 minutes and 20 seconds, there’s a guy blonde here. Who is that guy?’ I said his name is David Spade. ‘I don’t know who he is, take him out.’ So Spade was out, and I’m sure Spade was, like, pissed!” (Spade had not yet joined SNL)
Yukich is still aggravated that the song, and hence the video, was never released in America.
When Jackson died suddenly, Yukich immediately thought back to the video and a conversation the two had.
“To this day, I’ve been – I guess not so much anymore, because years have gone by — but I was convinced when he died that he didn’t die. We made that video, and he said to me, ‘I would love to be hiding and see what people say about me, you know?’ I mean, having shot all that footage and then he died? It was just kind of weird.”
The video is dedicated to Liz Taylor, who is in fact not a Liberian girl *
1996 - Michael starts filming the “Ghost” short film in Van Nuys studios in California. During breaks, he visits his family at Hayvenhurst disguised as the “Mayor”*
2002 - Michael is about to start shooting the “Unbreakable” short film when Sony announces that they won’t release the single. The promotion of the Invincible album is over with only 2 singles!!! *
2002 -Michael’s former business manager Myung-Ho Lee files a $13 million lawsuit claiming that on September 14, 2001 Michael met him in Los Angeles and signed an agreement to pay him fees but he never got them. Michael’s lawyer Zia Moddaber answsers that his client never signed anything and was not even in Los Angeles on that date…
In his suit, Lee claimed that Jackson hired him in the late 1990s to put the musician’s finances in order, only to turn a deaf ear when it came to taking Lee’s advice by refusing to curb spending. Lee then claimed Jackson never paid him, instead relying on “charlatans” and “hucksters” for advice.
In his court papers, Lee called Jackson a “ticking financial time bomb waiting to explode” who owed banks hundreds of millions of dollars in loans.
Michael would countersue claiming Lee and Union Finance swindled millions from him and destroyed financial records to cover up their misdeeds.
2003 - Michael and Chris Tucker visit lawyer Willie Gary in Stuart, Florida.
2003 - Vanity Fair (#tabloidtrash) reported that Michael Jackson had attended a voodoo ritual in 2000 where a witch doctor promised that Steven Spielberg and 24 other people would die. The people noted were on Jackson's list of enemies. Jackson also wired $150,000 to a voodoo chief named Baba who sacrificed 42 cows for the ceremony. The article also reported that Jackson wore a prosthesis that serves as the tip of his nose
2004 - Michael attended the Ethiopian Embassy in Washington DC to support The African Ambassadors' Spouses Association (A.A.S.A.). He was accompanied by the ambassador of Niger's wife, Haoua Piatta, and Mazie Green Holland. He watched a children's group dance before being awarded the Golden Elephant award for his worldwide humanitarian efforts, particularly the fight against AIDS in Africa.
2005 - Trial Day 24
Michael goes to court with Katherine & Joe. Testimonies of Jeff Klapackis, Jack Green, Larry Feldman & Jesus Salas.
Larry Feldman, the attorney who first interviewed Michael Jackson's accuser testified that he was never asked to file a lawsuit against the singer.
However, he did acknowledge under cross examination, that the boy and his younger brother could file civil lawsuits until they turn 20 years old, the accuser being 15 years old now.
The prosecution had called Feldman to explain how the alleged molestation came to the attention of the authorities, but the defense used his appearance to try to show its belief, that the accuser and his family were out to get money from Jackson.
Jackson's defense lawyer, Thomas Mesereau grilled Feldman about the the impact of a criminal conviction, whether or not it would make a financial judgment easier.
"If Mr. Jackson was convicted of felony child molestation in this case, (the boy or his brother) could use that case to win a civil case alleging similar of same facts against Mr. Jackson, is that correct?" asked Mesereau.
"That is correct" said Feldman.
The two lawyers sparred over the exact requirements of a civil suit, and Feldman denied accusations of encouraging the criminal action, in an attempt to avoid incurring costs involved in preparing a civil lawsuit.
However, Feldman insisted that there would still be litigation expenses.
DA Tom Sneddon asked Feldman whether he was planning a lawsuit at the time, that he referred the accusing family to Santa Barbara prosecutors, to which Feldman replied "There was no lawsuit and there were no plans to file a lawsuit. It was up to you to investigate"
Feldman was permitted to tell jurors of a previous accusation against Jackson in 1993, where Feldman represented another boy, who won a monetary settlement. Jurors were not told how much the boy was paid, but Feldman said there were no trouble collecting it. An amount which has been reported to be millions of dollars.
Sneddon projected a photograph of the boy from the previous allegations on a courtroom screen, and asked Feldman to identify him.
"He was much better looking at that age. He was adorable," Feldman said, a remark which the judge ordered stricken from the record.
The picture showed a boy who many believe bears a striking resemblance to the current accuser.
Feldman said that while he met with the current accuser's mother many times after he ceased to represent her officially, he has "never been asked to file any lawsuit against Michael Jackson"
When Feldman walked outside the courthouse in an afternoon break in testimony, fans yelled "liar", "tell the truth" and "you're making money off the backs of these people"
Feldman said, he was first contacted by the family because of a dispute over the boy's appearance in the documentary, Living With Michael Jackson where he appeared holding hands with Jackson. Feldman then referred the family to psychologist Stan J. Katz "to make out some heads and tails of what was being told to me by the family"
Katz reported suspicions of molestation to authorities after interviewing the family.
Also on the stand Friday, was an an investigator who testified that linens seized by police from Michael's bed, had failed to yield any DNA linked to the teenage accuser or his brother.
In other testimony, Sheriff's Lt. Jeff Klapackis defends the scale of the effort, when 69 investigators served a search warrant at Neverland on Nov. 18, 2003.
The large number of investigators were needed, he said, because they had only been allowed one day to carry out the search, because the district attorney didn't want to "burden the ranch and its employees with our presence longer than that," Klapackis said. He also said that there were large buildings to search at the 2,800-acre ranch.
Klapackis also said, that they took all bedding during the search, because that is where the accuser and his brother claim to have frequently slept, and where they allege the molestation took place.
During cross-examination, Klapackis said authorities did not test bottle and glasses containing alcohol for fingerprints - found in Jackson's bedroom as well as the home's wine cellar and kitchen. Nor did investigators test furniture, boxes, mannequin toys and rails along Jackson's stairwell, or his bedroom doors for fingerprints.
When asked on redirect why, Klapackis said, "It didn't enter in the investigation at the time."
However, they did test pornographic magazines. The boy's brother testified how Jackson showed them magazines. A fingerprint analyst has testified earlier, that the prints of Jackson and his accuser were recovered from the same magazine.
Jack Green, president of a Ventura telephone systems company, testified that he had inspected Neverland's phone systems. He explained that it had a function to allow someone to listen in on other's calls, but there was nothing to prevent anyone from calling 911.
Prosecutors allege the family's calls were monitored by Jackson, whereas the defense say the family could have called for help, if they truly were captives.
