2023.03.26 14:21 Dakota_85 Best Air Bleeder Valve

I'm looking to install a valve on my residential hot water line to purge air from the tank when doing maintenance / repairs.
The reason is there are no hot water taps in the crawlspace.
I would prefer a device that just bleeds air and doesn't require use of a drain hose.
Does the the little bleeder leak water when you open it or does only air come out?
The alternative I found requires a drain hose...
What sort of solution would you use?

I have to work in a very hot country in a few weeks – and I'm deeply self-conscious over the backs of my legs. Even when I shave, it's like I get a 5 o'clock shadow on the backs of my thighs within a matter of hours.
Has anyone found consistent at-home IPL has helped? If so, I'll keep at it, I'm just not seeing results

2023.03.26 14:17 DabidLebbermin (35f) Metabolism speeding up with age??

So all my life I've had to diet and/or exercise to keep under 145 lbs. I'm 5"6. I've also been a big sleeper-inner and would struggle to get up at 9 and would sleep til 11 if I could. These are the main things.
Sometime in the past year, my appetite has really decreased and I lost 20+ pounds (have to make myself eat to stay there, and I can't seem to gain). I still go to bed around midnight, but I've became an early riser, ready to go at 7 and unable to sleep in past 830 even when I've gone to bed late. Thing is, I have a ton of energy. More than I used to. I only get light-headed when I stand up too fast.
There are other things too, like being more regular with my BMs, getting so hot at the slightest exertion , and my hair growing fast (when it used to grow slower than average).
When I first started losing weight without explanation, I naturally assumed I was dying. I have had blood/hormone tests, a colonoscopy, endoscopy, ultrasound, and it's all fine. Thyroid has been checked twice.
It seems like my metabolism has suddenly sped up, right? I mean, I'm not mad, but I've just never heard of such a thing. Has anyone experienced or heard of this sometimes happening with age/early menopause (which my mom did have)? I would be remiss to leave out that these changes started happening after I had had COVID at least twice (and the vaccines)!

2023.03.26 14:16 engineer_comrade112 Who's that Pokemon? Generating retro assets using ML

Hello Pokemonart!
I'm currently writing my thesis on how machine learning can aid game developers and designers to create retro assets for their games. As a specific theme, I chose Pokemon, and two assets I have decided to go with are audio tracks and 2D sprites. Most of my work is done, but no work is complete without the communities opinion, therefore, I have created a form in order to asses the results of my work. All I ask of you is to test your Pokemon knowledge by dedicating 15 to 20 minutes to the completion of the following form where you have to correctly identify AI generated tracks from the original ones and 2D generated sprites from the original ones. The form will not collect any personal data from you, it is completely anonymous. More details are found on the form.
Link to form
Thank you for helping me, it really means a lot!

2023.03.26 14:16 genericusername019 Some context on the Dark and Darker controversy, coming from a Korean

I was late to the initial train a month ago, but then D&D got removed (for the time being) from Steam so I decided may be I can provide some additional context on ‘why the mood between the Korean gaming community and international scene are so different.’ This controversy never lost much steam (pun intended) here, and newer shovelfuls of coal were fed into it every one or so week. I’ll explicate on that, as well as clear up some confusions on why Koreans seem to find fault in parts where American/international viewers don’t readily understand.
I’ll mainly be addressing the confusion found in this thread ( While it’s not the only thread on this controversy, I’m lazy and I just thought handling the one thread with most traction would be best.
Before I get on with the post, I should say that I hate what Nexon is with a passion. Nexon (as well as its other “3N” brothers NC and Netmarble) are a bane to the gaming industry, the spectre which has haunted the Korean gaming scene that ruins everything it touches with its haunting grips and anti-consumer, consumer-predatory business models. It has absolutely ruined the Korean audience’s sense of what games are and what we should expect of games. Its vision is unmotivated, its creations lackluster, and its decision makers view the community not as individuals with thought and preference but as sheep to be milked for every bit of their available savings.
At the same time, there are reasons I’m skeptical of Ironmace, at the very least on the fence about this controversy. Below are a few points on why, formed in a way that can address some confusions.
1) Is Dark and Darker is a stolen game?
No. But it doesn’t end there.
Like many have mentioned, this sort of game formula has been tried before and it is not unique to Nexon’s P3. Even if it is similar in concept to the unreleased, never-finished P3, Ironmace’s rendition uses, according to them, mostly store-bought assets and their code. But this, at least to Nexon, was never the central point on why they’re engaged in a legal battle with one of IM’s executives.
Nexon sued IM executive “A” for violating the “Unfair Competition Prevention And Trade Secret Protection Act” (부정경쟁방지 및 영업비밀보호에 관한 법률).
While the the exact terms under which Nexon has sued Person A is not exactly public, Art. 2 (Definitions) No.1 (“act of unfair competition”) line K may be relevant.
What’s more is that earlier this month, Korean law enforcement conducted a search and seizure of Ironmace’s Seongnam office. In the Korean criminal code Art. 215, a S&S warrant is only permissible if there is reason to believe that a crime has been committed. Before some people pull out their tinfoil hats, Nexon is not strong enough to move the courts to its sole favor. Hell, it’s the court of a functional, developed democratic country.
So the answer to no.1 is that no, the Dark and Darker game is not stolen. But did someone in IM steal from Nexon? Maybe, with a hefty lean towards yes. The reason why the Korean community leans toward the latter conclusion, even when the legal battle is not concluded, is further handled in the next bit.
2) Nexon fired some programmers, so they took their ideas and turned it into a new studio and a fun game. What’s the matter?
People get fired in the US all the time. Or that’s what I’ve gathered from my small window of American society, from friends, the news, and my own research as I look for my way to the States. Quite often would people get fired and they find new jobs or begin a business. But the same cannot be said of Korea.
In Korea, labor laws are very strong and this pretty much blocks most forms of dismissal save from restructuring. It’s not that you can’t be dismissed, but it’s that any minute blunder made by corporate during the process will get the government to breathe down their neck. And it’s usually not in corporate’s favor. What’s more, any minute flaw in the process will have the union up in arms as well. Coincidentally, Nexon has one of the largest, strongest labor unions in all of Korean IT corporations. In this climate, it is safe to say that most dismissals are handled as recommended resignations.
In light of this fact, the sued IM exec was dismissed as part of a disciplinary action. In Korea, to be fired liked this is rare on its own, and to not dispute it or go to court over it is even rarer. So this is circumstantial, in turn weak, evidence that someone in IM did steal assets and code from Nexon. If Person A did not commit these actions that Nexon is claiming, why forgo a hefty severance pay?
More circumstantial evidence comes from the most recent rounds of corporation-union negotiation in Nexon. In Feb, Nexon agreed with its labor union to increase pay by an average of 5 million KRW (~3860 USD). This was the big headline, but some of the other publicized bits included that Nexon’s corporate wanted to get rid of working from home, and Nexon’s union agreed. It’s said that P3 code theft happened when people worked from home during COVID.
3) In the end, it’s still a fun game. What’s the problem of having a great game on the market?
Well sure, if you like splitting the proverbial golden-egg-laying-goose open.
This is where I think IM is playing the English-speaking community. IM went on this tirade about microtransactions and Nexon’s anti-consumer business model, which is all true and a good punch against what the company is. But there isn’t any evidence that Dark and Darker (or P3) would have followed that business model. It’s only IM’s claims here. In fact, P3 was being developed not by the conglomerate giant Nexon, but its subsidiary, named Mintrocket. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because you’ve probably played Dave the Diver.
This bit addresses one of the top comments of the linked thread asking somewhere along the lines of ‘how realistic is it that Nexon with 7k employees had to scrap a project because of a few programmers leaving?’
Well, the answer is that it’s because it’s not a company with 7k employees. That’s Nexon, this is Mintrocket, which a 2022 Nov article tells us that it has around 30 employees. That’s the total number, not the number of programmers.
Mintrocket, fyi, is a bit of a project Nexon is on to fund small studios and develop indie games. Is it still a part of Nexon? Sure. Are they the same, greedy, microtransacting pigs we’ve seen from Nexon? Not so far. So we’re left to believe IM’s word that they(Mintrocket) wanted to add extensive microtransactions on P3. Until Dave the Diver comes out of early access to a 1.0 riddled with microtransactions, I’m calling this claim one-sided at best.
4) In the end of it all, they’re the underdogs sticking it to big money in the industry. Isn’t that worth something?
This is another sketchy point. The YNA article I linked above actually handles IM’s connection to that big money. YNA, a very reputable source and one of the largest news source in Korea wrote an article highlighting Ironmace’s potential connection to HYBE. HYBE is an entertainment giant in Korea, whose artists include BTS, LE SSERAFIM, and New Jeans to name some of the largest of the bunch. HYBE has been trying to enter the gaming industry for some time now, even bringing on board a former Nexon exec in 2021 Jul. It’s said that HYBE’s gaming subsidiary will be called HYBE IM, which only fueled more speculation and controversy here in Korea.
This story is ongoing and HYBE is actively denying connections to Ironmace. So far it does appear that HYBE was part of Ironmace’s early investors, with reports claiming that HYBE IM CEO’s share in Ironmace to be 5%. But then they came up with a counter claim that they only gave ironmace 500k KRW (~386 USD) as a show of personal support to some exec on the team. I think it’s only natural that HYBE IM deny connections, as if it were proven true, it would be case of employee poaching between two giants in their respective industries. And for someone trying to make a break into the other’s industry, poaching is a surefire way of getting everyone to bunch up against you.
But take this part with a grain of salt as the story is ongoing.
Still, if this connection were to be true, Ironmace’s rhetoric of the underdog sticking it to the big ones would be worth very little.
To conclude, I’d just like to add that the success of Dark and Darker, in the end, is a double edged sword. It’s a great game, sure. But at the same time 2 points worry me.
First is that the indie development scene in Korea may falter right when it proved something with Dave the Diver. Korea is, at least compared to the US or Europe, not a market where a group of ambitious friends can go and make their own studio and a game fueled only with passion and a dream.
In large part this is due to the fact that it’s difficult to secure funding for indie games in Korea from Korean companies. But this has begun to change in the last few years or so, as these once-hated companies are beginning to invest more and more on smaller studios and smaller IPs and better games.
Are these companies doing it out of altruism for the Korean community? Fuck no.
In fact, it’s more likely that they’ve seen the limits of microtransaction as more and more people here are exposed to quality games, compared to a decade ago when the only option we had were glorified slot machines and a very limited library of localized, foreign games. But is the rise of quality indie games and visionary studios a good one? I’d say so.
Second is that should IM walk away scott free from this dispute, then these large companies themselves are given a precedent where they can predate on programmers and ideas of other companies and studios. It is not only a precedent in action or business practice, but also a legal precedent.
I hope this can shed some light on why the Korean community, the very people that live under the oppressive microtransaction regime beset by Nexon and NC and Netmarble, are on the fence or even siding with Nexon on this one. I just think that because Nexon’s a shitty company, it shouldn’t automatically make Ironamce a saint.

2023.03.26 14:15 00_Schneider Help me naming the islands' regions!

I am in the process of designing my custom laser cut boards, as I always thought that the aesthetics of the normal side were a bit lacking and the thematic board is lacking readibility (I am looking at you, wetland- deserts!).
While preparing the templates, I got the idea of naming some regions in the style of translated Dahan names. This might spark some more narrative moments when saving the "Swamp of the Forgotten Souls", prowling out of the "Fanged Jungle" into the surrounding countryside or something similar.
My idea was that 2 connected lands with the same terrain might get a name, therefore the 2 mountains on A, 2 wetlands on B, 2 mountains on E and the 2 jungles on F. This would leave C and D blank. Maybe name a single land there? The coastal desert of C and the streched out wetlands of D or the hot arid mountain pass of land 7?
How would you approach that and what kind of names come to your mind? I will of course show you the results in the future, if you are interested :)
Here's a link to the wiki, if you wand to get inspired and help me out. Thanks in advance!

2023.03.26 14:15 run-for-cover-zoot Success story: house wired with transfer switch

A couple of years ago I had my house wired with a 10 circuit transfer switch. $950 When we had an ice storm a couple of weeks ago we lost power. I plugged my portable generator into the plug on the side of the house, started it, then went to the basement and flipped the switches from line to generator. I had furnace, hot water, lights and outlets in the kitchen and bathrooms. It worked exactly as I had planned.

2023.03.26 14:15 HOVER_HATER Got my first laptop and wanted to share some experience

Processing img zgomnjx8s2qa1...
Cpu:I5 11300 H (4c/8t 8MB L3 cache)
Gpu: Nvidia 3050 4G
Display: 16" 4K (3840 x 2400) OLED, 60hz
RAM: 16GB(unfortunately soldered)
SSD: 512GB m2 ssd (PCIe gen 3x4)
Personal experience:
Cons: Georgeous 4k oled display with very accurate and beautiful colors. Good build quality and design which is nice despite being simplistic. Keyboard and track pad feel great to use. Performance is suffient for everyday tasks and even some basic gaming at 1080p60. 4k60 gaming is possible via Nvidia geforce now.
Let's start with the saddest part which is the price. This guy costed me 1550€ which is obviously way to much for those specs it offers, and i admit that i kinda fucked up in this aspect. Natural downsides of oled displays such as pmw flickering and risk of burn in exist but in my opinion the strenghts of oled technology still make it worth it 100. I guess main problem with the display is basic 60hz refresh rate, a more balanced option would of been a 2.8k oled with 120hz refresh rate which offers both high enough resolution and smooth refresh rate for gaming and other tasks. Performance is obviously very lackcluster for the price, for 1550€ you can find laptops with 8+ core cpu and 3070/3070 ti gpu.
Final verdict: Good overall "Multimedia" machine but obviously not for the price. For the specs this guy offers fair price would be 650-800€ so basically 2 times less. If i had a chance to go back instead time i would of gotten a different machine (most likely Asus vivobook 15s oled, Samsung Galaxy Book3 16 or other 16" laptop either 2.8k 120hz oled) but since i can't return or exchange it anymore I'll have to live with his laptop for 3-5 years

2023.03.26 14:14 SlightlyColdWaffles Amber Alert

NEMESIS 2: Chapter 41
"There was no sign of the item you described at the residence" Doombot 0028 said on the other end of the call. "I believe The Office acquired the time machine during the initial assault."
I pinched the bridge of my nose and sighed. If The Office had the time machine, then it was only a matter of time until they deciphered how it worked. After that, it was a different kind of 'matter of time'. A much more permanent one.
"What are our orders, sir?" Doombot 0028 asked, breaking the silence.
"Search the area for any clues" I said, "then return to base. We'll-"
The lights in my office went out at the same time that the line went dead. In one smooth motion, I dropped the phone and drew my blaster. The eerie silence that followed offered no explanation for the power outage, but it did reveal that the backup generator had failed to kick in... or had been disabled.
Silently, I slipped around my desk and took up an offensive position on the door frame. If we were under attack, then we wouldn't stand a chance holding up and waiting to defend a position. By my count, I had four combat ready Doombots, around a dozen of Warden's refugees in frames with their training wheels still on, and thirty support minions on the premises. 28 had taken all of our combatant Doombots, and Doctor Doomsday had taken Magma Carter and Communist Manfred.
A beam of light swept across the office door as someone passed by. I waited until the footsteps grew quiet, counted to five, and slid the door open. A Doombot's back greeted me a few meters down the hall.
"Status Report" I barked in a whisper at the robot.
The Doombot rotated its head without turning its upper body, confirming my identity and overall state. "We have lost power to the facility" it said without a hint of emotion, then resumed its patrol.
"Well, yeah, I figured that much" I grumbled. The Doombot ignored me and continued sweeping its flashlight through the dark corners of the Doomfort.
A scream echoed down the hall from the other direction. I turned and sprinted down the dark hallway, sacrificing safety for speed. Frightened faces peeked through windows and around doors as I flew towards the sound. Accountants, lawyers, logistics and supply chain officers, all non-combatants under my protection, and all I had was four Doombots and a blaster.
Why was I so bad at being bad? I should have realized that the Doomfort was still a target for multiple known enemies, and probably a few dozen more, all that would leap at the opportunity to take down one of the biggest names on the Supervillain circuit.
"Good evening, Steven!" A cheerful voice called from the shadows.
I lunged forward, transitioning into a combat roll in mid-air and rolling into an open doorway for cover. Once my eyes adjusted to the new level of darkness, I realized I had taken shelter in the lady's restroom.
"Tisk tisk, Steven" the cheerful voice called again, echoing eerily through the dark hallway. "There's no need for your theatrics, we only want to talk to you about-"
I flicked the dial on my blaster from 'über death' to 'kill', then down again to 'stun'. "If you wanted to talk, you could have called" I shouted back. It was true, Doctor Doomsday had taken out an ad a few years back to promote our recruitment figures. Our toll-free line and custom jingle had brought in quite a few fresh, eager minions into the Doomsquad.
"We actually did that first" the voice called out, "we got a message about your voicemail being full."
"Regardless, we felt an in person meeting would be more professional" the voice continued, "to discuss an employment opportunity."
I fired several stun blasts down the hall, covering my own advance as I sprinted another few doors down the hallway. The blue tinged plasma illuminated as it flew, revealing several attackers crouched surprisingly close by. The closest unlucky bastard took my boot to his jaw, his head snapping back before he collapsed in a heap.
His friends opened fire, sending their own blue stun bolts at me. One struck my leg as I tried to roll away, instantly rendering it useless. It felt like the limb had just fallen asleep, and had the pins and needles tingle reaction of blood returning.
"There's a particular skill that you have, Steven." The voice chuckled again. "And we don't mean your power. We are in need of that unique skill at The Office".
I reloaded my blaster and tried to force my leg to work again. I had a sinking feeling that I knew what the madman was going to say next.
"We have acquired a piece of technology, and need someone to teach us how it works. I'm led to believe that you, and you alone, figured out how to use the time machine."
Yup, I was right.
"Well, tough shit" I yelled back down the hallway. "I'm not helping you."
The lights snapped back on, illuminating the room and the hallway beyond. "Oh Steven, we were not expecting you to volunteer." The cheerful voice teased.
I peeked around the doorframe, and froze.
Dozens of armed invaders stood along the hallway, each holding a Doomsquad minion at gunpoint. The terrified faces of so many non-combat personnel gripped my heart with an iron fist as I tried, and failed, to come up with a solution.
"We are prepared to offer you a contract" the man with the cheerful voice said.
It took me a moment to find him among the faceless goons, mostly because he wasn't actually present. A tablet screen held by a rather large invader showed the speaker on the other end of a video call. He grinned when I met his gaze, eye to eyepatch.
"Looks like you've seen better days" I said.
"Indeed. So have you" he replied, flexing his hands from the safety of wherever he was.
I reflexively stole a glance at my prosthetic hands, but didn't reply.
"You may have noticed that my soldiers here have no super powers" The Manager said, "so your dampening power won't have any affect. You're outnumbered by a factor of five, and we already captured the rest of your people here. If you accept our generous offer, I will assure you that no harm will come to your minions. If not..."
One of the attackers stepped forward, dragging a frightened young woman in a choke hold. The woman struggled against the man to no avail. With a stab of fear, I realized who she was.
"Tiffany here has-"
I threw my blaster into the hall and limped out, arms raised in surrender. "Don't hurt her. I surrender." I said. Gasps echoed in a chorus of shocked minions as I allowed the nearest attacker to zip tie my hands behind my back.
"Impressive" The Manager said, leaning back into his chair. "A villain that sacrifices himself for his people. Is there a word for that? Like an evil word for heroic..."
"Leave them all alone, and I come quietly" I said sternly. "Harm any of them, and I will personally remove your other eye, manager."
He chuckled. "I like you, Steven. Very well." He waved a dismissive hand at the screen, and the call ended.
The Office's soldiers kept their word, leading me out of the doomfort and releasing my minions. As I was shoved into the awaiting SUV, I tried to cushion my landing with my zip tied hands.
My right hand cooperated. My left did not.
I suppressed a smile as I was secured in place. My left finger began lightly tapping against my side, a series of touches and pauses that took me a moment to recognize as morse code. I concentrated on the message as it repeated, trying to translate it on the fly. The message turned out to be one word, repeated again and again.
"Howdy" the message said.

2023.03.26 14:14 ActionDespiteFear Another fail at the gym yesterday, tried to just friendly chat up a group of girls

Sometimes I wonder if I should keep trying, as I was saying in my previous posts. I have tried to self improve in many ways - both my body and mind and over the past year I have made many if not friends, male acquaintances.
Yesterday at the gym i decided to talk up a few girls with the sole intention of social practice and making female acquaintances. Since I have had a bit of success with male friends, I decided to just do the same with them which is scarier. My intentions were nothing but friendly, not trying to "hit on", "pick up" or anything like that. I tried cracking up a joke at my expense, got a weird look.
There was this weight that I had to use and I went to ask them if they are done with it and if I can use it, they barely gave me half an answer but it was a "yes ig", in the end I did take the weight for a quick set in front of them, so they can use it right after me. After that I went to do another set with the most positive energy I could find in myself and I said "wow i'm embarrassed, you're lifting with more weight than me" to which they awkwardly looked at me and didn't say a word. That was it. I decided not to be a 'creep' for looking ugly and never said anything else.
Before you start assumming, I'm dressed well, I don't smell, I put enough deodorant, perfume (but not too much to stink up the whole gym). I have new washed clothes. I have received compliments about my haircut and fitness clothes from GUYS. I approach with "confidence" (even though each next time the confidence drops) and a little smirk, however my smile is apparantly awful, if i don't smirk/smile i have a resting bitch face which is worse. I cannot win. I'm starting to lose hope that I will ever be accepted.
Not to mention, I've heard a hot guy say the same line (joke) to other women (that I said) and they died of fake laughter.
I recently thought of the approach "alpha" guys do in movies, I try to put myself in their shoes and laugh how much creepy it would be if I COPY exactly 1:1 their behaviour and lines with my face.
For example check out this movie "Crazy Stupid Love" - Ryan Gosling going there and talking to 2 random women in a bar who have a girls night, then he PICKS UP a chair and sits with them after the woman tells him she's not interested. Ofc it's a movie, not a real situation, but even if we take real situations with hot guys and we copy 1:1 they will say "well you approached creepy" that's why it didn't work.

So all my life I've had to diet and/or exercise to keep under 145 lbs. I'm 5"6. I've also been a big sleeper-inner and would struggle to get up at 9 and would sleep til 11 if I could. These are the main things.
I'm 35 now and sometime in the past year, my appetite has really decreased and I lost 20+ pounds (have to make myself eat to stay there, and I can't seem to gain). I still go to bed around midnight, but I've became an early riser, ready to go at 7 and unable to sleep in past 830 even when I've gone to bed late. Thing is, I have a ton of energy. More than I used to. I only get light-headed when I stand up too fast.
There are other things too, like being more regular with my BMs, getting so hot at the slightest exertion , and my hair growing fast enough that my hairdresser has commented (and she never even knew it used to grow slower than average)
When I first started losing weight without explanation, I naturally assumed I was dying. I have had blood/hormone tests, a colonoscopy, endoscopy, ultrasound, and it's all fine. Thyroid has been checked twice.
It seems like my metabolism has suddenly sped up, right?.I mean, I'm not mad, but I've just never heard of such a thing. Has anyone experienced or heard of this sometimes happening with age/early menopause (which my mom did have)? I would be remiss to leave out that these changes started happening after I had had COVID at least twice (and the vaccines)!

2023.03.26 14:10 Pizzafari GPU stopped working couple days after getting new mobo & cpu

Gigabyte RX 5700 XT
Ryzen 7900x (recent upgrade)
Win10 Home
Gigabyte B650 AORUS Elite AX (recent upgrade)
TL;DR: My gpu isn't working. With monitor plugged into gpu, seems to run off onboard graphics, gpu leds not on (initially lights up during boot then goes off right after) and fans not spinning.
Since I got home from going out for a couple days yesterday, my GPU hasn't been working properly. When I first booted up my pc and went to desktop and whatnot, my pc kept freezing and my screen going black for some moments before coming back, with me getting a gpu crash error message every time it did.
So I restarted my pc, and during reboot, before windows loaded, it sounded like my pc fans stopped for a few moments before coming back on, and when it came back on, it looked like it wasn't running off my gpu at all, my display looked all stretched and low res and wallpaper engine didn't autorun. I uninstalled gpu drivers and rebooted, and when it came back on everything looked exactly the same. This has happened on all boots since, including the fans thing.
During one reboot, I got a "windows didn't start correctly" error, restarted, and then it worked fine on all test boots since.
I also noticed my gpu fans aren't spinning, and gpu leds only light up very briefly after powering up the pc, as soon as actual bootup starts the leds go off.
I went to reseat my gpu and noticed that it felt uncomfortably hot. Reseating didn't change anything.
The biggest recent change is that I recently got a new mobo, ram and cpu (changed from intel to amd) and have not yet reinstalled windows, but since my gpu lights go off before it even starts trying to boot windows, I don't think the windows install is what's causing it.
I got & started using the new parts on thursday, and it worked fine thursday and friday when I last used it.
I'm running off onboard graphics now just to test and it looks exactly the same as when I had my monitor plugged into the gpu.
In case it is relevant, the cpu fan plug for my new mobo doesn't seem to be working, I had to plug my cpu fan into a sys fan plug and set it to always spin full speed. My gpu fans were spinning fine at that point though.
I have a usb drive ready to reinstall windows if need be, but my gpu doesn't seem to be working before win10 even boots, and I want to avoid wiping my c drive if I can. So be it if I can't, but yeah.
There are currently no graphics drivers on my pc (this started before I uninstalled them), but since my gpu fans aren't spinning and the gpu gets hot I'm nervous about putting the gpu back in to reinstall them unless you think that's a good idea.

This roasted funk hams form couldn’t be easier! Occasionally simple is stylish, and when it comes to roaster ignited funk legs, that couldn’t be more true. They’re incredibly crisp, delicious, and succulent, but they only take 10 twinkles to fix. I’m agitated to show you how to cook funk hams using my favourite system, my tips and tricks for cooking funk legs in the roaster, what to serve with them, and more. This post has everything you need to know!

WHY YOU’ LL LOVE THIS crisp Ignited funk LEGS form

constituents YOU’LL NEED

This section explains how to choose the stylish constituents for ignited funk hams, what each one does in the form, and negotiation options. For measures, see the form card below.

This crisp roaster ignited funk legs form is seasoned. You’ll need

Chicken Hams – Bone- heft and skin- on, of course. Try to choose bones that are invariant in size to cook at the same rate.

Adulation: Not only does this help make them crisper on the outside and juicy on the inside, but it also helps the seasonings stick. Adulation has a lower bank point, so I don’t generally use it for riding, but I love the flavour that it gives this form and haven’t set up any issues with it. However, feel free to use ghee, or an olive oil painting, If you’re concerned about it. Scattering with cooking spray would also work, but I prefer to avoid the chemicals.

Smoked Paprika: Adds a succulent hoarse flavour, as well as colour. Feel free to change it to regular paprika if that’s what you have on hand.

Garlic Greasepaint: We’re using garlic greasepaint instead of fresh garlic, as the ultimate would burn. However, it’s stylish to put it in an emulsion adulation underneath the skin, as I do with air-range funk hams, If you want to use fresh garlic.

Sea Salt & Black Pepper

SEASONING VARIATIONS Want to change up the introductory funk hams form? Try replacing the seasonings with Italian seasoning or bomb pepper seasoning, or add them to the above. However, reduce or forget the swab added independently, If your seasonings contain swab. You can also make complementary additions to the below seasonings, like oregano, onion greasepaint, cayenne pepper, or diced fresh sauces.

HOW TO MAKE Ignited funk LEGS IN THE Roaster

This section shows how to cook funk legs in the roaster, with step-by-step prints and details about the fashion. For complete instructions, see the form card below.

I’ve 3 simple but essential tips to ensure your crisp baked funk legs turn out impeccably each time.

Sot the hams. This helps get the skin crisp.

Use a baking rack. This allows the hot air to circulate the funk.

Rally at high heat. The stylish ignited funk legs oven temperature is relatively high( 425 degrees F), which helps crisp the skin. Plus, advanced temperatures are less prone to drying out the meat.


Your fix for oven-roasted funk legs is centred around encouraging air rotation to get them crisp.

Prep the roaster and visage. Preheat the roaster. Line a baking distance with antipode( for easy clean-up!) and place a safe roaster rack over the distance visage. ( I like this set – it’s non-stick, so easy to clean.) I prefer antipode over diploma paper for lining underneath the rack because it catches the authorities more fluently.

TIP The roaster rack helps circulate the hot air around funk for the stylish ignited funk hams that are nice and crisp!

Sot the funk. Pat the hams with a paper scarf, which will help relieve any redundant humidity and make them nice and crisp.


Encounter with adulation. Encounter the funk legs on all sides with melted adulation, or mizzle with olive oil painting or avocado oil painting if you prefer.

Season the hams. Sprinkle on the smoked paprika, garlic grease paint, ocean swab, and black pepper.

TIP You can season in the funk in a giant coliseum if you prefer. Pour the melted adulation over the funk in the coliseum, add the seasonings, and toss into fleece.

Singe. Cuisine funk legs at high heat will get them crisp, how we want them.

TIP For stylish results, flip the funk legs halfway through baking, which will help them crisp over more and cook more unevenly.

Rest. Let the ignited funk hams rest for 5 twinkles before serving, which helps seal in the authorities and ensure they stay wettish on the inside.

I recommend a chef time of 35- 45 twinkles at 425 degrees for average-sized hams, flipping halfway through. The exact time will vary a bit due to varying oven temperatures and forelimb size.

Whether cooking funk legs in the roaster or using just about any other system, they should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F; some prefer 170 degrees F for other tender meat. Either way then’s the meat thermometer I use and recommend.


The entire nutrition word is below, but these answers to common questions about this form.

ARE Ignited funk Hams HEALTHY?

Yes, quickly ignited funk legs in a roaster is a healthy way to cook hams. They’re a great source of essential amino acids and several vitamins and minerals. Being advanced in fat, hams are an excellent choice for a keto life.

HOW numerous CALORIES IN A Ignited funk LEG?

An ignited funk leg using this form has 236 calories, including the adoration we brush on top. The calorie count will vary grounded on size.


An average funk leg has 22 grams of protein, but it’ll vary a bit depending on its size.


Store this easy funk forelimb form in the fridge for over 5 days.

CAN YOU indurate RAW Hams?

Absolutely! You can indurate raw funk for over 9- 12 months for stylish results. Lay the hams on a diploma-lined distance visage in a single subcaste and place them in the freezer. Once solid, you can move them to a freezer bag for a different compact storehouse.

TIP If you like, you can brush with adulation and season the funk legs before indurating. That way, there’s nearly no fix before incinerating latterly.

CAN YOU indurate Ignited funk Hams?

Yes, you can indurate this oven-roasted funk legs form after incinerating if you like. It’ll last several months. Still, the form is so quick and easy that you don’t save much time by indurating. I’d conclude with indurating the raw hams instead and making them fresh when demanded.


Reheat leftover funk in a 350-degree F roaster for stylish results. The roaster-ignited funk legs will be crispy and better if you roast them to overheat them but can also be microwaved in a pinch.

TIP If the skin isn’t crisp after reheating, you can place it under the toaster for a nanosecond or two until crisp. Watch nearly, so they don’t burn.

To overheat frozen hams, let thaw in the refrigerator overnight( or for many hours) and reheat in a 350-degree F roaster for stylish results.

What is the difference between Botox and Fillers?

Anti-aging products and treatments are a huge part of health and beauty assiduity. When it comes to cosmetic results, Botox and dermal paddings are the most common procedures that suffer to achieve a different immature look. Though these two kinds of treatments are injectable paddings generally administered in the same way and produce similar goods, the more you examine both Botox and dermal paddings, the more you’ll find that they have a lot of differences in their approach and their results. Then’s some must-have information about the difference between Botox and paddings, and eventually, what’s better?

what is botox

What’s Botox?

First Out, Botox is a brand name, but like other particulars, similar to Hoover, it has come to be used as the general term. Botox was the first similar injection. Other brand names are Dysport and Xeomin.

Botox is an injection of a commodity called botulinum poison made from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It can relax the muscles in your face to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Further technically, the poison blocks signals from the jitters to the muscles meaning the force can not contract. Hence they stay tense and tight.

Botox injections are generally used to address crow’s bases around the eyes, forepart wrinkles, and smile lines( around the corners of the mouth) and give good results.

What are dermal paddings?

Dermal paddings are another procedure by injection. A result grounded on hyaluronic acid is introduced to rotund facial lines to produce a further immature appearance. Dermal injections differ from a Botox injection in that rather than furnishing any muscle relaxation, and they work to fill the wrinkles and lines under the skin, adding volume to the cheeks, forepart, or lips.

Paddings vs. Botox – What lasts longer?


0Commodity essential to know about the long-term goods of Botox and paddings, and before considering either of these procedures, is that neither offers a lasting result to wrinkles and fine lines. On average, a Botox treatment lasts between three and four months, but this can be shorter or longer depending on each case. First-time Botox druggies may find that their alternate round of treatment lasts longer than their initial treatment.

dermal paddings

Dermal paddings

Dermal paddings have the eventuality to last for a far lesser period than Botox, but it’s important to note that they aren’t a one-time, endless fix. Depending on the type of padding you elect and the position on your face in which it’s fitted, high-grade dermal paddings can last anywhere from six to eighteen months.

Are paddings more precious than Botox?

When comparing the two treatments, what’s clear to see is that dermal paddings are much more precious than Botox across the board.


Some of the most typical Botox treatments and their average prices are as follows

Forepart lines –$ 300

moue lines and the area between the eyebrows –$ 250

Crow’s bases and around the eyes –$ 200

Dermal paddings

More Precious, typical dermal padding treatments will bring cases, on average.

Cheeks –$ 1000 per impertinence

Lips –$ 800

Nasolabial crowds –$ 750

As you may have assumed from the former section on lasting power, dermal paddings command an advanced price because they last a lot longer than the average Botox treatment. Botox is frequently seen as a beauty governance treatment that can be regularly outgunned, while dermal paddings are a further occasional extravagance and eventually a temporary result.

What age should you get it?

While there’s no legal age limit on getting Botox or dermal paddings, there are several guidelines that cosmetic surgery professionals will follow to determine whether a case is suitable for the treatment.


While there’s no age limit for Botox mandated by law, in general, it isn’t recommended for anyone under eighteen. There is presently a way to reasonably ban the use of ornamental injectable substances for all people under the age of eighteen.

The appearance of wrinkles isn’t a commodity every person shares-wise. Some people might witness crow’s bases in their thirties, while others will go all their way into their fifties with no fine lines.

Some cases start Botox injections before their mid-twenties, while others stay until decades after. Commodity to consider then’s that the before you start, the further regularly you’ll have to eclipse up your treatment, leading to a much more significant expenditure throughout a continuance.

Dermal paddings

For dermal paddings, the minimal, respectable age for similar treatment twenty- one time old.

In general, utmost people will begin to notice a loss of volume in their face in the medial to late thirties. Still, it’s also common to see bags under the eyes, known as tear troughs, at a youngish age. This is substantially due to the skin on that area of the face being so thin and lacking collagen.

While Botox treatments are given to people in their twenties more regularly, druggies of dermal paddings tend to be in their mid-thirties and aged.

Where to get cosmetic injections?

Depending on your country, the vacuity of cosmetic injection procedures can vary greatly. In Canada and a rich megacity like Toronto, several options exist for prospective cases. When looking for a top-quality Botox clinic in Toronto, there are several different effects you can do

Hear to and pay attention to word of mouth. Ask around your social circles for particular witnesses of Botox or dermal padding injections that they might have had done. Another positive of getting specific feedback from real people is seeing the results near and exact.

Exploration of which conventions in your area have the stylish online character, which can include effects like assiduity awards, along with the resumes and experience of the ornamental professional working there.

A Canadian nonsupervisory body should accredit the clinic you choose. These include the Canadian Society of Plastic Surgeons and the Aesthetic Society.

2023.03.26 14:10 plutokann Set Up Windows for Public Use

First of all, this is my first time posting here so I don't know if this is the right way to do it.
I am trying to set up a PC for public use. Specifically, for an interactive art installation. What I am going to present is a "trojan" (not malicious) written in .VBS that takes control of the system and displays visual content as if it were a movie. The thing is that since I want to maintain the interactivity, being a public space, I need to isolate somehow the system and restrict unwanted activity (avoiding having to go to repair it continuously).
I had thought about Microsoft's Kiosk mode, but I have Windows Home and I can't use it. With this, I thought of virtualizing a machine, but if the software crashes I don't know how I could automate the execution. Finally, I thought of using an isolated user and through UAC limit its range of action, but I don't know.
What do you think? I can't find the solution.
