Differences between Conversational AI and Generative AI
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has witnessed remarkable advancements in recent years, revolutionizing various industries and aspects of human life. Within the AI domain, two prominent branches that have gained significant attention are Conversational AI vs Generative AI. While both these technologies involve natural language processing, they serve distinct purposes and possess unique characteristics. In this blog post, we will delve into the world of Conversational AI and Generative AI, exploring their differences, key features, applications, and use cases.

What is Conversational AI

Conversational AI, as the name suggests, focuses on facilitating natural language conversations between humans and AI systems. It leverages technologies like Natural Language Understanding (NLU) and Natural Language Generation (NLG) to enable seamless interactions. Conversational AI services possess several key features and capabilities that enhance conversational abilities:

Speech Recognition

  • Conversational AI systems incorporate advanced algorithms to convert spoken language into textual form.
  • Enables them to understand and process user inputs in the form of speech or voice commands.

Natural Language Understanding (NLU)

  • Language Translation: Conversational AI can facilitate real-time translation between different languages, breaking down language barriers and enabling global communication.
  • Voice-controlled Interfaces: By integrating Conversational AI into devices and systems, users can interact with them through voice commands, enabling hands-free control and enhanced accessibility.

What is Generative AI

Generative AI, on the other hand, focuses on creating new and original content using machine learning algorithms. It harnesses techniques such as deep learning and neural networks to generate realistic and creative outputs. Let’s delve into the key features and capabilities of Generative AI.

Content Generation

  • Generative AI models have the ability to create diverse forms of content, including text, images, music, and even videos.
  • By analyzing patterns and structures in the training data, Generative AI can generate new content that aligns with the learned patterns.

Creative Versatility

  • Generative AI is known for its creative versatility, as it can produce unique and novel outputs based on the data it has been trained on.
  • The ability to generate original content that exhibits creativity and diversity makes Generative AI a powerful tool in various creative domains.

Learning from Data

  • Generative AI algorithms learn from large datasets to improve the quality and diversity of the generated outputs.
  • By training on extensive and diverse datasets, Generative AI models can better understand the underlying patterns and generate more realistic

What is the Difference Between Conversational AI and Generative AI

Conversational AI and Generative AI have many differences which range from objective to application of the two technologies. The very core difference between conversation AI and generative AI is that one is used to mimic human conversations between two entities. The other is to generate new and different types of content. ChatGPT for example uses both conversational AI and generative AI.
Difference Between Conversational AI & Generative AI


In summary, Conversational AI and Generative AI are two distinct branches of AI with different objectives and applications. Conversational AI focuses on enabling human-like conversations and providing context-aware responses, while Generative AI focuses on content creation and generating novel outputs. Both technologies have unique features and capabilities that contribute to their respective domains and play crucial roles in advancing AI applications.

2023.06.07 10:52 EleventhBorn Sathyaa (1988): Endings in other languages

So all this posts about Sathyaa made me dig a bit deep in to its history. Tamil movie fans, take note.
Two opposing politicans are corrupt but secretly work together. Hero needs evidence, present in a file to prove them they are bad.
- Arjun (1985 - Hindi)
Original version written by Javed Akhtar. Sunny Deol takes the file. Fight scene with goons. Gives the evidence to police. Police do their duty. Hero is shown in the hospital smiling. The End.
- Bharatamlo Arjunudu (1987 - Telugu)
Venkatesh takes the file. Fight scene with goons. Gives the evidence to police. Police do their duty. Hero is shown marrying his girlfriend. Jokes all around. Everyone smiles. The End.
- Sathyaa (1988 - Tamil)
Kamal takes the file. Fight scene with goons. Evidence is destroyed. Kamal proceeds to murder the two politicans in the most gory, bloody death possible. Aandavar then sits there striking a "calm after storm" pose. Monologue in the background. The End.

Does anybody knows this sound on the 360 ?
It comes from the fan area as you can see it stops as soon as I stop the game and that sounds only appears when I play , -Ace combat 6 and GTA 4 I know that I got red dead, that one as well . It could be that those are some heavy games Idk because I also have played both Crysis 2 and 3 , red dead undead nightmare without that sound , for precautions I don't play the games that caused the noise because I don't know if this causes damage to the console or it's normal for such games .
I'm taking my PS4 tomorrow for deep cleaning, should I take the 360 as well ? Thanks in advance have a good one

2023.06.07 10:30 Lolalamb224 Problems after moving in with boyfriend in filthy apartment

Hello everyone, first time posting in this sub.
TLDR: Moved in with boyfriend who has a filthy apartment. Our standards are vastly different and it’s causing lots of tension.
I (33f) just relocated to Spain from the US to live with my partner (36m). We had met one year ago when I was on a trip in Spain and continued to chat and develop our long-distance relationship over the months. Finally, he offered to help me arrange my papers and we decided I would move in with him in Spain and apply for residency together. I feel committed to this relationship because I am beholden to him for immigration reasons but also because I love him and think we are very compatible and this will be a fun adventure. He’s a wonderful compassionate person and very doting.
However, there have been major stresses as we merge two households into one small apartment that served as his bachelor pad for the last five years. The place is filthy! Tons of black mold in the bathroom, sewage smell, odor from cat litter boxes as well as litter kicked all over the ground by the kitten who is still learning to conduct herself. The house is filled with cat hairs and dander and dust, which really aggravates my cat allergies that boyfriend knew about already. My bf was previously accustomed to smoking indoors, which left yellow smoke stains on the walls and on furniture. The towels reek of mildew, and the bed is horrible. The mattress and the frame are both super low quality (many apartments here come furnished so the landlord has no incentive to provide anything high-quality) and boyfriend has been sleeping on a back-destroyer without noticing presumably for years.
The decoré is horrendous. Imagine a frat house in terms of design sense. There’s a large framed photo of himself as a baby mounted on the wall right as you enter the house, next to a framed photo of a soccer player and another photo of a Spanish rapper. I’m like…. You understand this is insane right? Who has a framed photo of themself as a baby in their home? That’s so embarrassing. The rugs, pillows, everything is covered in dander and stained from cigarettes to the point that they all have to be replaced.
I found out that his mom has come over and done a deep clean on his apartment when he was out of town in February. She was so shocked by the state of his apartment when she came to feed his cats that she took matters into her own hands. My bf got defensive and apparently didn’t internalize any shame about his unacceptable apartment hygiene after that.
Well it has been about a month now that I am working on finding solutions to the mold, to the odors, the litter boxes, the smoke stains and so on. For me, a clean home is a HIGH priority. Because of my cat allergies I need his commitment to sweeping daily and keeping this place dander and dust-free. I’m making trips to the store daily to get more organization tools that this place needs to help us manage to fit two peoples’ stuff into one apartment. My boyfriend has been very helpful in addressing the mold by cleaning every weekend with special products to address the mold. He has stopped smoking indoors. He comes home and sweeps and takes care of the litter almost every day after work.
However, it’s clear that he resents the tasks that he has to do now. He resents being robbed of his filthy bachelor pad. But I told him, I absolutely am not a young bachelor and will not live like one. If you want a live-in girlfriend, you have to raise your standards because no woman finds this attractive or wants to live like this. In fact, it has made me really question what type of person can live in filth and what type of GROWN man lets their mother come over and deep clean. I would be so embarrassed.
As you can imagine, this has caused a LOT of stress in the beginnings of our new relationship. I really wish he had organized and cleaned the apartment before I arrived, but now I have spent all my time in the last month organizing his shit and trying to deal with the five years of filth he has allowed to accumulate here.
I don’t think I have ever been cruel to him but I have been direct that this situation is unacceptable and every day there’s more work to do to get this space into a tenable state. As time goes on, he is becoming more and more irritated that the house still isn’t “finished”. He comes home from work already in a grumpy mood and does the basic cleaning that is required and lends me a hand with whatever organization task needs to be done. But he clearly resents me for it.
Yesterday as he was sweeping the bedroom, he was slamming doors and making a bunch of noise which is very triggering for me. He came home and wanted to talk but I was too tired to have a conversation. He then started threatening to break up with me and move out.
What am I supposed to do in this situation? This grown ass man has invited me to live with him but it’s taking a serious amount of labor to make the apartment livable and our relationship is not on good terms now as a result.
I am exhausted because I require a place for my things (I still haven’t been able to fully unpack because of the mountains of clutter taking up valuable space in this apartment) and I require an adequate bed (that’s another long story unfortunately). He’s exhausted because he’s no longer able to live with the same low standards as before. He works full time and has a band and instead of being able to come home and unwind, he feels pressure to sweep in his only downtime instead of kick his feet up for a few minutes.
After the threats he made yesterday, I don’t know where to go from here. Does it come down to me vs the filth? How do we work this out?
Thanks for reading!

2023.06.07 10:24 onionchewer Landlord asking to do inspection 6 months after lease ended and tenant moved out. Unit has been sitting vacant for the full 6 months!

Hi all! This (super long) post is on the behalf of a couple friends living in Utah that are worried about a landlord who is asking to do a walkthrough of their former apartment, 6 months after they moved out.
During their time at this complex, there were numerous maintenance issues. For example: a sprinkler outside of one of their windows was broken, causing it to spray directly at the window, which also wasn’t sealed properly, which leaked into the living room. Landlord was informed, they didn’t fix the sprinkler OR the window but did acknowledge the complaint and asked them to stuff a towel into the window ledge, lol. Water was leaking through the ceiling from the unit upstairs into the bathroom, which caused a mold problem as well as the ceiling bubbling and chunks of it falling out. Landlord was informed of this issue as well, and I believe that they PARTIALLY remedied the issue, but the ceiling was still damaged at the end of it all, with the landlords just sort of pushing off that repair for an unknown later date (it wasn’t ever fixed, lol). There was a lot of other stuff I won’t bother to list since these two examples are the more worrisome ones, all of which the landlord or property manager were informed of and were either not repaired (but acknowledged!) or semi repaired in true landlord half assed fashion. After some complaints about the upstairs neighbors, (not something that the landlords were at fault for, just some serious noise and smell/neglect issues with pets and whatnot…this complex was a mess in so many regards) as well as all of the maintenance problems, the landlords had my friends sign a DIFFERENT lease and move into the unit across the hall to remedy both the complaints about the upstairs tenants, as well as get my buddies into a livable place and allow them to do repairs on an empty unit instead of an occupied one. New unit was fine, the building was old and rent was cheap so no one was gonna complain about general wear and tear as long as they could live a mold and leak free life.
So, my friends eventually find a killer deal on a cute little house that they decide to buy. The lease on the apartment was going to end in February, but everything with the house got finalized in January, so the landlord agreed to just end their lease a month early as a sort of apology for all the problems they’d had in their original unit. Landlord didn’t ask to do a move out inspection (or AGREE to do one at my friend’s request), and despite many contacts via texts and calls from my friends to the landlord and property manager, the deposit wasn’t ever returned, and they were never able to return their keys. My friends have a strong aversion to confrontation, didn’t want to continue pestering them, and were just tired of dealing with all the runaround, and I guess just never pursued the deposit or key thing very hard. This, of course, sucks, because now due to their lack of pursuance on the issue, they’re dealing with this latest problem.
The last (unanswered) communication was in February, it is now June, and they just got a text from the property manager asking for the keys to the apartment and to do an inspection, 6 months after their move out and termination of the lease. The unit has been vacant for these full 6 months, and my friends are very concerned that while it’s been empty some damage might have occurred that no one has been able to properly report, since it’s been empty for so long. The apartment had normal wear and tear upon move-out and was more than adequately deep cleaned, but based on their experiences with the last unit and with this complex in general, they’re worried.
So! What can they do in this situation? Do they have any rights that might allow them to get their deposit back? With no evidence of the condition of the apartment upon their move out 6 months ago, can they be charged for any potential random damage (my fear is something like the bathroom leak thing from the first unit) that might have occurred while the unit has been sitting empty?
Sorry for my extremely long post! I know, and they know, that they should have done more about the deposit and final inspection back when they first moved out, but what’s done is unfortunately done, and hindsight is 20/20. Thanks in advance, and any advice or help is sincerely appreciated.

2023.06.07 10:15 Agitated-Distance740 What happens to corrupt returned blu-rays etc?

Just something random I thought about years ago and decided to finally ask staff. You buy a film, find it's corrupt so can't complete it. You return it to the store, buyer gets credit etc end of story. What happens after to the disc?
Wasn't sure if its just thrown in the bin, an attempt to clean/resell even with no visible damage or if the original person who traded it in gets some kind of penalty.

2023.06.07 10:14 Watermelon_013 [GEAR] Marshall Origin 50W or Solid State

So im in the market to upgrade my amp, from a boss katana 50 mk2. I plan on playing live with a keyboard, bass, drums, and singer. I want to buy a tube amp and the one i've found that I like a lot is the Marshall Origin 50 combo. The only con for me with it is that it has only one channel. In several of the songs im playing with this band i'll need to go from super clean, no dirt at all, to overdriven and even crazy distorted tones in a matter of seconds leaving me no time to fiddle with a volume knob. I was browsing a forum earlier and they said that it'd be pointless to buy a tube amp if you planned on using a distortion pedal into the clean amp. Is that true? and if so what 2 channel tube amps are there in the same price range of an origin 50w (second hand so <650)?
The pedal selection I have currently

Brushed Brass Finish
Looking to create a fine brush finish on these brass inlay for picture frames I'm building. Originally, I spent a while wet sanding to 3000 grit to get a polished look (not mirror quite yet). I got some scratches on them and it was annoying because of the work I put in. Now I'm actually liking the fine scratches. I used 80 grit to get rid of heavy scratches as I had to run them through the table saw for my inlay prior. Once I got rid of the gouges and saw marks, I tried to clean up the scratches with 120, 240 and 320 grit. I also tried 0000 steel wool (didn't really effect the appearance much). It looked better but I feel I could improve it. Maybe I should had it clean but not fully polished and used a higher grit sandpaper to scratch it?
I'm not sure I'm on the right track and if anyone has suggestions to have "clean" scratches that doesnt make it look like I was lazy and didn't want to polish brass.

How much should I cut?
So originally I thought that my orchid was thriving and then I realized that these new growth of keikis are most likely happening because my plant might die. So I investigated the roots and realized I was totally overwatering. Lots of mushy dead roots. So I cleaned it up and am stopping by over watering. This yellow stem keeps yellowing, should I cut all the way down to where it connects to the long stem or just the yellow? I had originally done that but the stem is still dying, anything I can do to help it other than slowing my watering frequency?

2023.06.07 09:36 thezzarry [PI] You are the barkeep of a very strange bar. It seems to attract monsters and gods, and is the unofficial neutral ground in most conflicts. Everyone likes you, and you are well protected. One day, some New Gods come in and try to fuck with you.

The Old Ways can rub some people wrong — especially those coming into the supernatural world fresh from this modern era of excess, privilege, and internet anonymity. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen societal changes and cultural shifts in every direction you could plot an axis for; live for nearly 3500 years as I have, and you too will come to understand that Change is the one and only constant in this world. But what our more, shall I say, exuberant (indignant, entitled, take your pick) newcomers tend to misunderstand is that Old Ways — and those of us who uphold them — don’t stand in opposition to change; we’ve just already seen all their ‘new’ ideas brought forward before, been accepted, gone stale, and get discarded for the next.
The Old Ways aren’t rules, they’re just how you come to behave once you’ve lived through a few revolutions of the cycle. They’re also not written or codified in any way, but if I had to articulate the particular tenet that seems most abhorrent to our most recent newcomers, it would be this: Respect is owed to your elders, because they’ve already damn-well earned it in the past.
The recent upheaval in the supernatural underworld wasn’t particularly upsetting, or even that surprising: some newly-minted vamp shaking things up, gathering a following, killing off a few of the established vampire lords. I don’t overlap much with the neck-biter scene, so it wasn’t very concerning to me. But as ill-luck would have it, he kept growing more famous, and thus harder to avoid hearing about.
He was turned fairly late for a vampire, in his 40s, having already led a deeply troubling life steeped in conspiracy theory, hoax, and rabbit holes into the occult. So rather than take the traditional path toward amassing strength for a vamp — which is basically just to feed regularly and get older — he instead continued his dive into the occult. To his credit, this did score him the power he needed to oppose (and depose) many of the vampire lords of London; to his detriment, it also placed him rather firmly on a collision course with me.
I’d put a handful of wards and contingencies in place out of habit, but I wasn’t particularly concerned. Vampires are about as dangerous to me as… eh… now that I think of it, I don’t have a great analogy on hand for this. There isn’t much that’s truly all that dangerous to me at all, anymore — about as dangerous as a mosquito, I guess? In that I’d be annoyed if one bit me?
Still, he did manage to surprise me, if only because I never thought he’d be stupid enough to come for me there, in the Tavern. But like I said: in this storied community, the impetuous youth flaunt or ignore the Old Ways at their own peril. And it had started as such a nice, quiet night, with me seated at my usual booth in its dimly lit, secluded corner of the restaurant.
“Here you are, darling, you just let me know if you need anything else, okay?”
The head server of the Tavern is a lovely woman, seemingly 30 to 40 years of age, who despite the many years she’s spent in England, still speaks with an accent from the American south. Her ethnic heritage is clearly from a region further south-west in Africa than my own.
“Of course, thank you Catherine,” I replied as she placed an impeccably plated salad on the table before me. It was one of my favorites at the Tavern, a delightful little number with tender bamboo shoots, and some kind of sweet and spicy mustard vinaigrette. Catherine smiled and whisked off toward another table. I folded a piece of baby spinach over an arugula leaf and pinned them to a bamboo shoot with my fork, and had just lifted them to my lips when the doors to the Tavern slammed open into the walls of the entryway. The small, decorative windows in the doors shattered on impact, showering the hostess’ podium with shards of glass.
Most groups of vampires want to be called ‘covens.’ Some of the weirder, extra culty groups prefer the term ‘hive.’ Judging by the collection of washed out, middle-aged vampire bros who sauntered in through the broken doors, I can only assume this group called themselves something extra stupid, like ‘the posse.’
He was immediately evident. His four goons looked like your average jocks who’d had neither the skill to go pro, nor the sense to plan for anything else in life, and had spent their subsequent years in disappointment of themselves and others.
“Barkeep! A round of your finest libations for the entourage of…” the fucker actually paused, as though for dramatic effect, “the Dread Prince Lestat!”
An audible groan of disgust rose from a table of Lesser Devils in the next alcove down from mine. Abyssal-speech is difficult to decipher even when there isn’t a group of demons all talking over one another, but I did manage to make out from one of them, a trickster muse by the name of Mamenoche, just before he dissolved into a cloud of flies and dispersed. The remaining devils grumbled in disappointment, but still turned with eager smiles to watch the drama unfold.
The keeper of the tavern, for his part, simply raised an eyebrow while he wiped down a freshly washed stein with a drying rag. He nodded to an empty table. “Take a seat, we’ll be right with you,” he said, and then turned away to shelve the clean glass.
The keeper is a slight man, of average height, perhaps in his early to mid 50s. He wears the same costume every day: dark brown slacks and a burgundy tweed vest over a crisp white shirt with the sleeves rolled back to his elbows. His voice is rich and resonant, and though soft-spoken, he is never difficult to hear. Beyond that, I can only say that the tavern keeper looks exactly as you think he would, and do understand that I mean that literally. His features, his hair, the color of his skin: they all exist only in the eyes of the beholder. It’s part of the Glamour.
The four underlings slid chairs out from the table and plopped down with what some of my younger students have recently informed me is known as the ‘Riker maneuver.’ Lestat remained standing and circled the table while he addressed the patrons.
“Well, well, well. So this is the storied Tavern. Drinking hole for the Greats of the underworld, the movers and shakers, the true titans of the occult.” He smirked and paused for effect again. “At least now it is. Bit of a slow day before I got here, eh barkeep?”
The keeper responded with silence as he filled five elaborately crafted snifters from a small, gold-banded barrel behind the bar.
“No matter, we’ll liven things up here real soon. I’m looking for a woman — no, not you love, some other time maybe.” He gestured across the bar to a woman of simply indescribable beauty, whom he utterly failed to recognize as Titania. Lounging beside her, Oberon narrowed his eyes, but remained otherwise still.
It had been at least 150 years since the last time a patron had stepped out of line in the Tavern, and the mood of the crowd was positively electric with anticipation. The vampire, bless his shriveled little heart, clearly interpreted this as deference to his prowess.
“The woman I’m looking for is… Egyptian. An Empress. Her very name and image carved off the face of history by her own son. Probably on the masculine side, considering how she managed to pass herself off as a Pharaoh and usurp his reign for 20 years. Just a guess, but probably a 2 or 3 out of 10.”
“I’ve had kings put to death for far less impetuous horse shit than that, young man,” I said. How rude — I looked positively fabulous with a false goatee.
He turned to me with a broad smile and threw his arms wide open. “And here she is, The Empress Undying. The ‘last word’ in all things occult and arcane, so they tell me.” He approached, squinting into the gloom surrounding my dining table. “And wow, I take it all back, for a 3,000 year old mummy, you are surprisingly bang-able. You know I love a girl who plays hard to get, and let’s face it — erased from history, all that jazz — you were difficult to track down, Hatshepsut!
“Really? I have a page on Wikipedia.”
“That’s not— I mean I prefer— that is, well, primary sources are—”
“Which, if you’d bothered reading, would have told you that Thutmose the Second was not my son, but my step son, and that at 2 years old he was not in the best position to rule when my husband passed. Not to mention it was actually his bratty son Amenhotep who ordered the whole defacing of my icons thing.” Which is also untrue. I ate my own name as part of my Ascension. But he doesn’t need to know the details of my life.
“Here’s your drinks boys,” Catherine said behind him with her typically cheerful demeanor as she set the tray of snifters down between Lestat’s posse. “Seeing as how it’s your first round at the Tavern, darlings, this one’s on the house.”
The vampires grabbed their drinks without so much as a thank you. Lestat wisely took the interruption as a reprieve from this sudden hiccup in whatever grand plan it was he had in mind for me, and retreated to the support of his minions. One of them sniffed at the drink suspiciously, while the others simply threw them back like shots and immediately grimaced. One got it down before sputtering and coughing uproariously, the other two spit it out back into their snifters.
“What is this shit?”
“That’s Ambrosia, darling,” Catherine said as she gently patted the coughing vamp on his back. “Nectar of the gods. It’s a bit of an acquired taste for sure, and most people do prefer to sip it. They say it’s ‘too much sensation’ for us lesser beings.”
“They don’t want Ambrosia, you wench,” Lestat howled, “they want blood!”
“Well I’m sorry darling, but we don’t serve blood here. You asked for a round of our ‘finest libations,’ and there’s no drink finer than Ambrosia in the Tavern, nor outside of it as I’ve ever heard. That barrel over there was handed off by Hermes himself.”
One of the vampires dashed his drink on the floor and pointed at Catherine.
“You’ve got blood, don’t you lass?”
“That will be enough.” The tavern keeper’s soft, mellifluous voice draped over the exchange like a weighted blanket. “I’ve served you drinks, and in return you have been exceedingly impolite to my establishment, my staff, and my patrons. Learn the meaning of deference before you visit next, for you will not be well-received without it. Now, leave.”
Lestat’s four hulking minions might have succumbed to the spell of the keeper’s voice had not their ring-leader, to his detriment, managed to shake out of it.
“Leave? No, we just got here,” he turned back to me, “and I’m not finished with her.”
“But I am finished with you,” I said.
“Ten,” the keeper said, leaning forward to rest his elbows on the bar.
“The only reason I haven’t ended your miserable existence thus far,” I continued, “is out of deference to my elders. It is not my right to take your life inside the walls of this Tavern. I suppose I’ll soon be forced to do it outside, but do understand, I’ll approach that no differently than I would stepping on a scarab.”
“The truth of it is, 'Dread Prince,' that you are not worth the breath spent uttering your ridiculous name.”
“Not worth your time, am I? I’ll show you what your time is worth, you decrepit bitch!”
“Eight,” the tavern keeper said, and Lestat flung an outstretched claw in his direction while hissing out a spell in medieval Latin.
Generously translated, it came out to roughly As though caught on a hook, the keeper tumbled over his bar and forward through the air. Lestat caught him by the neck and wrenched sideways, spinning the keeper’s head fully around with a loud crunching sound. Then, with the inhuman speed inherent to vampires, he hoisted the keeper’s body over his head, darted across the Tavern, and slammed him down through a table surrounded by a flock of naiads.
He turned and caught Catherine in the hypnotic gaze his kind uses to trap their prey, and strolled leisurely back over to his group. I crossed my arms.
“Sorry ‘darling,’ but I like my meals a little toasty.”
He hissed in his awful Latin again, along the lines of Catherine convulsed and shrieked, unable to move while locked in his gaze. He yanked her head to the side and made a show of sinking his fangs into her neck with a ripping motion, splattering droplets of blood across the tavern that sizzled and steamed where they landed. Her lifeless body rolled under the table as he turned his bloody face back to me.
“How do you like me now?”
I pushed my untouched salad, now flecked with Catherine’s blood, away from me on the table and let out a deep sigh.
“First, your grasp of Latin is elementary at best, you really should have practiced more before coming to see me. No, now, this is the part where you listen.”
I pinched my forefinger to the thumb to seal the air inside his lungs. He stumbled back and clutched at his neck in surprise — he wasn’t going to suffocate of course, but it’s an unpleasant feeling for sure if you haven’t yet come to the realization that you don’t actually need to breathe in undeath.
“Of course it is the intent that matters somewhat more-so than the language used — but, and I cannot stress this enough, good syntax simply never hurts. The age of your language also should not be overlooked. The older the language, the truer it is to the One Tongue of Magic, before it was fractured and the tower fell. You came with a form of Ecclesiastical Latin from around the 12th century, taught to Catholic priests. Underwhelming at best. You should have at least brought Classical Latin from the time of the Caesars, that would have shown me you were trying.
“Second, you demonstrate a lack of finesse that is simply appalling. I will commend your creativity in bringing your own spells to demonstrate. It is a key craft that many young students of the occult struggle with terribly for many years. You are also clearly capable of drawing significant power to bear, which is always a good start. However, the path to enduring success in the arcane arts isn’t power, it’s efficiency. What you did worked, but it took far more power than it needed to. I can think of a dozen ways to boil someone’s blood off the top of my head, and none of them require much more focus or power than this.”
I released my fingers, letting the air out of his lungs in an involuntary wheeze.
“Since you were turned, I suspect you’ve never met a door you couldn’t break down with brute force. But that’s only because until today, you never really went looking for one.
“Third, and most damning of the indictments against you is this: you absolutely and utterly failed to read the room, nor did you accept the un-earned grace that was offered to you. Thus ends our impromptu lesson, prince. Good luck.”
I leaned back and draped my arms across the cushions of my booth, while Lestat yanked one of his minions to their feet and stood behind him, tensing for a fight.
“Mother… fucker…” came a mutter from under Lestat’s table, as Catherine stirred and rolled over onto her side. The newly-minted vampire lord paused and looked down at her with a furrowed brow.
“Wait, was she not a human? That normally kills humans.” He looked to his cronies, who gave him an array of shrugs and uncertain mumblings.
I said in Classical Latin,
The vampire cocked his head, clearly trying and failing to work through the declensions and figure out exactly what I had said. I pointed across the room to the tavern keeper, standing up out of the wreckage of his table. Loud crunches of grinding bone sounded from his neck as he rolled his head from side to side, reforming the shattered vertebrae inside it. He spat out a mouthful of blood, then plucked a wrinkled pocket square from his vest and dabbed the corners of his lips.
“Zero,” the keeper said once his larynx had reformed enough for speech. “It’s the medical benefits of her employment package: immunity to death, disease, etc. Cuts the insurance middle-men right out of the picture, I find it’s very efficient.”
“Ah.” Lestat eyed the keeper, far too late showing the slightest hint of caution or concern. “So she’s human, but you’re not. Well then, what are you?”
“Immortal,” the Keeper replied simply, as he plucked a shard of glass out of his skull and tossed it aside. It landed with a loud tinkle in the otherwise silent room.
“That means nothing,” Prince Lestat waved his hand dismissively. “I’m immortal. Half your bloody patrons are—”
“No,” the keeper cut him off as he straightened out his vest and stepped out of the wreckage of the table. “You are ageless, thanks to the curse of undeath upon you. That is a very different thing than being immortal. Numerous vampire lords you’ve killed in the last few months would attest to this, were they not dead, no? They may not like to acknowledge it, but this is a simple fact that every entity in this establishment is keenly aware of, save for you.”
Lestat said nothing, but his body language spoke volumes for him, as he shrunk half a step backward toward the support of his underlings.
“My patrons from the Fey realms, or the Abyss? They experience death on this plane of existence as a banishment back to their own. But once there, they age and die the same as all other creatures in existence, if perhaps at a different rate than a human does. My dear employee Catherine, whom you’ve treated with such brazen disrespect, will live as long as she wishes to. But some day, be it centuries or millennia from now, she will grow tired of life, and request I terminate her contract.”
He gestured to me, seated in my quiet, dark corner, and a chill ran down my spine.
“Even the Empress Undying, whom you unwisely came looking for tonight, will only survive so long as she maintains the numerous spells and failsafes she has crafted to preserve and extend her unnatural life.”
My thoughts flickered in succession through my 5 phylacteries, painstakingly secreted away in sealed and warded caches both near and far-flung — and I watched in horror as the keeper’s eyes lifted briefly to the keystone of the stone arch over his doorway, then settled on me, and he winked.
By the gods, my cold heart would have skipped a beat were it able. How did he find it out? Or, more likely: has he simply always known?
“One day, when she has grown tired of this endless upkeep, she too will come to me for release. You see, Edwin, everything dies eventually.”
He held his hand calmly out to his side, and wisps of shadow materialized and snaked through the air into his grasp. The Dread Prince Lestat — Edwin — first shivered, then spasmed, and finally, as his entourage withdrew from him in horror, collapsed in a fit of convulsions. The shadows continued to flow into the keeper’s outstretched hand, gaining solidity and texture, until he was left holding his implement: a bowed farmer’s scythe, worn and battered, but with a keen edge that felt dizzying and somehow wrong to look upon. The keeper stepped forward.
“Everything dies, except for me.”
Been wanting to get back into writing for a while and came across this response I half-wrote last year.
Original prompt either here or here , honestly not sure which one I originally happened across anymore.

2023.06.07 09:34 Dragonwysper Mixed textiles?

Would it be possible to make an outfit out of leather, cotton twill, and dri-fit fabric? Could you like effectively sew all that together?
If yes, how would you clean something like that?
Bonus question: if I wanted 3D printed plastic garnishes on certain parts of the outfit, how might I attach them?
This is for a cosplay, so it doesn't really have to be these materials. I just thought it might be fun to have it be as close as possible to the original design, texture-wise. Alternate textiles if y'all think this is too complicated/unfeasible would be appreciated!

2023.06.07 09:32 sterrerwert Is Bungie working on Class segregation?

Bungie is slowly preparing and curating the Sandbox in a way, where all 3 Classes have dystinct rolls and the recent changes to 2 specific Exotics (Mask of Bakris and PotbS) confirmed my suspicion for me.
Just to quickly summarize what I'm talking about in regards to buffs:
There's 3 distinct types of buffs in Destiny 2, which all have some slightly different rules attached to them, since this is important info in regard to my theory:
These buff types can all be active at once, yet 2 different buffs of the same type can never stack with one another and only the strongest one will apply:
So if you have a 25% Radiant buff & a 35% Lumina buff, only the 35% bonus dmg will apply, since Lumina provides the higher buff, yet you could still apply Surges on top, which would stack multiplicatively.
Just this Season they removed the only 2 Subclasselement based Amplifiers with Bakris & PotbS.
So which ones are left behind and what does it all mean?
With the sole exception being Foetracer, all of these Exotic intrinsic Amplification buffs are now tied to weapons and only proc under specific requirements. Additionally only Hunters actually have access to self proccing unique Amplifiers, the only other one I can think of is Balidore's for Warlock, though that is a team wide buff they can apply. What I'm trying to say, is that Bungie seemingly is trying to tie these Amplifiers solely to weapons from now on and is currently trying to clean up their "past mistakes" by removing generalized Amplifiers from the game, though how does this tie into Bungie trying to create a more defined Sandbox with clearer seperation between Classes?
Obviously all of these rolls are already defined, yet I feel like that at this point in the games life, there is so much flow over, that with some small exceptions, basically every class can effectively achieve the same things the other can and my guess is that Bungie will potentially go hard with some future patches trying to more clearly define every class and this is only really the start. There'll always be some flow over, though I assume, that bungie will try to highly limit it in the future and will most likely do even more balance patches "fixing" older extics to better fit into their classes intended rolls.
What do all of you thinking, am I too deep in the conspiracy theory teritory, or do others also see the same pattern I see?

2023.06.07 09:24 DigicromeCompany Will artificial intelligence be able to replace data scientists?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly evolving and becoming more sophisticated. However, it is unlikely that AI will ever be able to completely replace data scientists. Data scientists are responsible for a wide range of tasks that require human creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. These tasks include:
While AI can automate some of these tasks, it is unlikely to be able to replace data scientists entirely. Data scientists will still be needed to oversee the AI process, interpret the results, and communicate the findings to stakeholders.
AI is likely to create new opportunities for data scientists. As AI becomes more sophisticated, it will be used to generate more data and insights. This will create a need for data scientists to help businesses make sense of this data and use it to make better decisions.
As a result, the demand for data scientists is expected to grow in the coming years. By 2026, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that there will be 11.2 million jobs in the US that require data science skills.
If you are interested in a career in data science, there are a few things you can do to prepare:
With hard work and dedication, you can become a successful data scientist and help businesses make better decisions with data.

2023.06.07 09:20 Classic-Objective-96 Beauty of Ruby Manik Gemstone

The ruby manik gemstone has grabbed people's hearts for ages because of its brilliant red colour and outstanding brilliance. The Ruby Manik gemstone is a genuine work of nature that was loved by ancient monarchs and treasured by gemstone enthusiasts. We shall examine the intriguing traits, significance, and history of this exceptional gemstone in this post.
Origin and Formation:
The captivating red colour of the Ruby Manik gemstone, also known as corundum in science, is due to the presence of chromium inside its crystal structure. The gemstone, which is frequently found in metamorphic and igneous rock formations, is created under extreme heat and pressure under the Earth's crust. The most valuable rubies come from significant reserves in nations like Madagascar, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, and Thailand.
Brilliant Red Colour and Clarity:
The Ruby Manik gemstone's brilliant red colour is one of its most alluring features. The color's intensity, which can range from dark crimson to paler pinkish-red tints, dictates the stone's price. The finest rubies have flawless clarity, a flawless red colour, and no discernible imperfections or defects. The vibrant hue of the gemstone is well known for representing passion, vigour, and love.
Historical Significance:
Throughout time, many societies have placed a high value on the Ruby Manik gemstone. Due to their connections to strength, prosperity, and protection, ancient cultures regarded rubies as the "king of gemstones" and referred to them as such. The Ruby Manik gemstone is associated with the Sun in Hindu astrology and stands for power, confidence, and leadership. It is thought to bring luck and supernatural favours to the wearer.
In addition to its aesthetic appeal:
the Ruby Manik gemstone is said to have a number of symbolic and therapeutic characteristics. It is thought to increase boldness, foster self-assurance, and ignite romantic love. The gem is linked to vigour, strength, and the renewal of energy. Additionally, it is thought to improve vascular health and general wellbeing of the wearer.
Care and Maintenance:
To preserve the beauty and longevity of a Ruby Manik gemstone, proper care is essential. As a durable gemstone, it is suitable for everyday wear, but it should be protected from harsh chemicals and extreme temperatures. Regular cleaning with a soft brush and mild detergent can help maintain its luster. Additionally, periodic professional cleaning and inspection are recommended to ensure the gemstone remains in optimal condition.
The Ruby Manik gemstone continues to enchant gemstone enthusiasts with its mesmerizing red hue, remarkable brilliance, and rich historical significance. Its radiant beauty, combined with its symbolic and healing properties, makes it a prized possession for many. Whether worn as jewelry or cherished for its metaphysical properties, the Ruby Manik gemstone remains a true gemological treasure that transcends time and captivates the soul.

2023.06.07 09:16 14g0t Bloons TD 6 - Update Notes! Version 37.0

Bloons TD 6 v37.0 - Update Notes!
Rolling out now on iOS, Android, Steam please restart your storefront or be patient if it does not appear for you, these updates can take some time to be rolled out to every region due to how the storefronts are set up.
Key New Features
New Awesome

Game Changes / Additions
Quest Changes
Bug Fixes & General Changes
Tower Specific Fixes
Ice Monkey
Monkey Buccaneer
Monkey Ace
Banana Farm
Beast Handler
Hero Specific Fixes
Obyn Greenfoot
Platform Specific fixes
Balance Changes
Boomerang Monkey
This part has to be included along with the Lych Soul rework with Paragons which is finally making it in this update after necessary delays. As Boomerang Paragon’s knockback hits so many times so quickly, we need to make it more reasonable when applied to targets that aren’t immediately destroyed.
Bomb Shooter
MOAB Assassin fills a useful role of a pure long cooldown ‘single target assassination’ in the game, but when compared to something like First Strike it feels a little lacking that it is unable to carry damage through MOAB Layers
Tack Shooter
Blade Shooter has always struggled to find much value without MK or as a step to Maelstrom, so to give it build value on its own we feel like this should be a part of the base value on the upgrade.
Ice Monkey
Lowest tiers of ice monkey are far too effective for their cost against ceramics, with this scaling well all the way to round 100, we feel like ice duration against ceramics needs to be reduced to counter this but for now this reduction will only apply until T3.
Glue Gunner
The Bloon Solver’s rework has been very popular, however, we’d like to have a better lead up into the new mechanics by introducing this earlier at the tier 4 now.
Sniper Monkey
This will allow Cripple MOAB to take out regular MOAB layers in one shot until round 100; for such a slow attacking single target tower we feel this will help top path flex, even if mostly for show.
Monkey Buccaneer
Reworking Grape Shot crosspathing as it gains far too much crosspath value by T2 but then is lacking in purpose at higher tiers, double shot will only work as one extra grape however Destroyer will now apply its full attack rate buff to the grapes and Flagship will equip aspects of Grape Shot on the mini planes.
Monkey Ace
Spectre is shifting a little of the ceramic bonus around into basic all damage at the cost of reduced pierce, which should make up for lack of single target damage while also making the pierce crosspath more necessary when being used for cleanup focus.
Heli Pilot
Even with the map-range advantage, rotors are weak compared to any other constant AoE circle like this. Chinook feels like it’s near a place we are happy with now, however we want another tiny nudge on cost while keeping cash generation value the same. Pushing some higher values on the last Comanche Commander changes as the missile attack is effectively such a small portion of the tower’s total damage late game.
Mortar Monkey
As the Rapid Reload crosspath has actually fallen behind in value compared to Burny Stuff for top path Mortars we want to try a slight stun duration increase as this buffs the base path with a larger benefit to Rapid Reload mortars as a stalling option. Mortar consistency is lacking at x3x making it tough to spend on even though x4x is fairly good, so some of the T4 rate is shifting down to help out with this. As the camo property has grown quite weak and currently Signal Flare is considered the best decamo tool, we want to push back slightly on its cost and by reducing the blast radius of the decamo area while emphasizing crosspathing for effectiveness there.
Super Monkey
As Engineer sentries do this already, newly spawned Mini Avatars from temples will now by default match the target priority of the temple.
Ninja Monkey
We’re changing the Ninja Monkey Paragon’s focus as a fighter against camo, as we feel like a greater strength and tactical value against camo will be the full reveal of all camos rather than all camo removal.
Alchemist Transforming Tonic is in a weird spot with the transformation unable to attack through walls when the base alchemist is able to. Also with this, including a QoL fix for the T5 that currently prevents transformed towers from functioning with target priority.
While the tornado doesn't do anything to MOABs, it still spends itself on them which wastes a relatively long cooldown, so addressing this flaw. Avatar of wrath doubles the base attack speed before any scaling is applied, but this hasn’t ever applied to the 205 Lightning, so taking care of that as well. Housekeeping - even deep in the forest, it does actually make life better.
Spike Factory
We’ve heard the feedback, so Spiked Mines get a tweak to get more mines exploding but with less pierce on each, to overall increase quality of life in more frequent use but less wasted pierce. This will help out with some of the problems it has scaling into late game super ceramics.
Monkey Village
A minor QoL for cheap Monkeyopolis creation, we included a small base amount of cash production to the generation formula.
The 005 crosspath fix in the last update left XXXL Trap slower than previously even if crosspathed to 205, so we are increasing that base 005 slightly to match up the 205 crosspath again so that it isn’t any slower than before.
Beast Handler
As our newest tower to be added to BTD6, we went over feedback for every path and made a large number of adjustments addressing a variety of points.
Removing the stacking aspect of Gwendolin’s burn damage over time, but increasing the damage as she levels up so that it actually scales up in power now.
While they are complicated individuals, Adora can now fully appreciate the sacrifice of the newest Monkeys in the struggle against the Bloons.
Admiral Brickell
We aren’t happy with strats that start looking like exploits with frequent sell-replace loops.
Psi’s stalling out of the end of round is an odd mix of useful / annoying / out of control, so we are for now capping this to a 3 seconds of overtime stalling. Psi’s Psychic Blast ability also has weirdly low pierce for a long cooldown ability with no damage, we are increasing the base pierce greatly but it no longer increases in pierce at Lv7 since the extra pulse brings more pierce anyway.
Event / Boss / Relic / Knowledge
Looking Forward
Five months of 2023 done and dusted, which feels to us like it has zoomed by, perhaps because the Auckland office where the BTD6 team is based has only just reopened after the severe flooding at the end of January. All of Update 36 and the majority of Update 37 were completed while again working from home, but we’re very excited to have the office repairs done, the flood wall almost finished, and the ability to work shoulder to shoulder again on fun new things for the monkeyverse! Here’s the latest gaze into the crystal ball:
