I recently started making housecalls and I’m trying to find something like a suitcase/makeup case with wheels that will hold my tools and make it easier for transport. Any recommendations? Links and specific places to lookout for?

2023.06.03 22:18 DesertEvil Question: What items am I looting for? Rares oder Legendaries?

Serious question. I cannot seem to find a guide which answer this question. Im lvl 40 necro and I do not know whether I should salvage all yellow items (Diablo 3-Style) or I should check them to see if they are a super well-rolled yellow which I can imprint with the aspect to make it legendary. What am I really looking for? If that imprinting is the case, why am I even celebrating legendaries? I like that (presumably) yellow items are worth more than the dust as it was in D3 but I do not understand how the grind is supposed to work?

2023.06.03 22:18 Glum-Fortune1342 Book The Next Year Of Any Championship Of Your Choice (Max 1000 words)

The TNT Championship has lost a lot of prestige over the 18 months and its very difficult to get invested in the belt when it changes hands so often. There hasn’t been a great TNT Champion since Miro and this is my attempt to fix its current trajectory.
At the time of writing, Wardlow is the current champion. He cuts a promo on the May 31st episode of Dynamite saying this belt used to be defended weekly on Dynamite and starting tonight that is going to be the case again and he issues an open challenge daring anyone to step into Wardlow’s world. Out comes Ethan Page with arguing with Matt Hardy, who tells him he has to prove his worth to him and the best way to do that would be to accept Wardlow’s open challenge. After some complaints, he gets in the ring and Wardlow throws him around whilst he tries to avoid his high-impact offence, ultimately to no avail. After the match, Matt says that next week he’ll challenge Wardlow to show Ethan how its done. Hardy is much bolder than Ethan was is in his match against Wardlow, taking the fight to him and never once dodging him. Of course, the big man gets the win after the Powerbomb Symphony.
After this, he has a string of defences against a variety of midcarders and forgotten AEW stars including Big Bill, Lance Archer, Swerve Strickland, Kip Sabian, Brian Cage, El Hijo Del Vikingo, Hook and Keith Lee. After defending against Luchasaurus at FyterFest, Wardlow is attacked by old rival Powerhouse Hobbs. Hobbs says that whilst Wardlow was pretending to be a fighting champion, he was ducking the one man who deserved a shot most, the man who he never even offered a rematch to because he knows he couldn’t beat him again; and that man is Powerhouse Hobbs. Wardlow says he has been defending the belt weekly, which means Hobbs could have had his rematch at any time but instead he decided to attack from behind like a coward. He is right about one thing though; I am a fighting champion and therefore he will give him a rematch because he’s not afraid of him; he just has to name the time and the place. Hobbs says Wardlow may as well have dug his own grave by asking him to name the time and place and says he’ll he see him at All In in at Wembley in a Falls Count Anywhere match. Hobbs wins after a Powerhouse Slam onto a car. On the Dynamite in-between All In and All Out, Wardlow says he’s not gonna wait for his rematch and cashes in his rematch clause for All Out, this time in a Chicago Street Fight. This is another brutal affair in which Hobbs comes out on top after a distraction from AEW World Champion MJF. This frees Wardlow up to pursue his former mentor, win the Eliminator tournament and ultimately dethrone MJF at Winter is Coming.
Hobbs goes on a monster run with the belt defeating opponents across Dynamite & Rampage. His first major feud is with Orange Cassidy; who dropped the International title to PAC at All In. After burning the candle at both ends for the past few months, Cassidy decides to chill for a few weeks before showing his more serious side again and decides he wants to be the face of the network. Hobbs just laughs at Cassidy and dismisses him as a joke in the build to their match at Full Gear. This feud is the most serious we have ever seen Cassidy and he puts up a brave fight against Hobbs as he fights from underneath, hitting him with snug strikes and showing off his rarely seen technical wrestling skills. It is to no avail however as Hobbs overpowers the piece of fruit and eventually retains his championship.
After this, Hobbs says Cassidy may have brought the fight to him, but now he wants more serious challengers; people worthy of entering the book of Hobbs. Up steps former TNT Champion Miro. Miro says he’s aware he has been away for some time, however he has been watching from afar whilst Hobbs has been entering people into his “book” and tells him that he is someone who needs redeeming and luckily for him the redeemer is here to do just that and take back his prize. Hobbs says Miro has been away for months and can’t just waltz out here and challenge the TNT Champion to a match but he accepts anyway, wanting to send the Redeemer back to wherever he’s been. The match happens at Winter Is Coming and is a hoss battle as the two just throw each other around the ring for a good 12 minutes before Hobbs retains.
Heading into Revolution 2024, Hobbs wants to know who’ll be the next entry into the Book of Hobbs when he is interrupted by an old friend turned foe, Ricky Starks. Starks says he and Hobbs go way back and he’s been watching as Hobbs has torn his way throw the roster but he knows him better than anyone and says the last time they thought he kicked his arse. Hobbs admits he may’ve gotten the better of him last time but since then Starks has been the Janetty to his Shawn Michaels. The match is set for Revolution and they tell a story of friends turned enemies over their pursuit of individual glory. Starks becomes the new TNT Champion after 15 engrossing minutes. Lower down the card, Swerve wins the Face Of The Revolution Ladder Match. Starks says the Revolution will indeed now be televised as he and Swerve engage in a feud that involves Starks having to fight off many off Swerve’s affiliates until their match at Double or Nothing 2024. This match is a hard-hitting, intense 15 minute long banger with Absolute retaining the title, having overcome every obstacle that Swerve threw at him in the process.

2023.06.03 22:17 GoastRiter [GUIDE] Living Large in Los Santos: Unleashing Chaos. Making Friends and Rediscovering the Thrill of GTA Online!

If you're reading this, perhaps you're like me. You have most things you want in GTA Online. You've "done it all". And now you're bored.
But... have you *really* done it all? Turns out, most of us haven't. There's so much to do in this game, and it's easy to get stuck in old habits that prevent us from discovering everything there is to do in Los Santos!
So I began writing down all my ideas for having fun in the game, and basically use these suggestions as guidelines to always find something new to do. It has completely reinvigorated my joy for the game, and I hope it can help you do the same!
If you're having trouble with motivation or inspiration, then I suggest picking something at random from the list and just doing it! You might disccover that you love it, just like I did!
And if you have anything more to add, please share your comments so that we can all help build this list together. :)

Let's go!

2023.06.03 22:17 reakti0n I’m honestly at my wits end 🤦‍♀️

This might be a long read. Back in March my Nan sadly passed away. I’ve taken on her little dog, who my Nan treated like an absolute princess. She was basically killing her with kindness by feeding her constantly. She’s a little dog and weighed 25kg when I got her, I’ve managed to get her weight down to 21.7kg in the few months that I’ve had her. I took her to the vets when I first took her in and they discovered a sinister lump on her mammary glands. On Thursday she went in for an op to remove it. This was TRAUMATIC. After the op I picked her up and was by myself. She decided to jump in the back of the car and popped open all of her stitches. Im sure you can imagine what the back of my car looked like without being too gory. I rushed her straight back and she was taken in as an emergency case and operated on for a second time on the same day to close the wound again. It was the most traumatising experience for both me and her. She’s now being an absolute demon. She’s non stop whining and has been since the op, she thrashes around when I try to put a belly bandage on, which makes me panic she’s going to pop the stitches again. Earlier on I left it off because I didn’t want to risk it and she scratched it with her back legs - not even a Buster collar can stop that and she’s bleeding again. I’m at a total loss. I’m trying so hard to help her and I just feel like constantly crying. I’m so stressed and I don’t know how else to help her. Whatever I do seems to be wrong. Thursday was horrific and I feel like I’m scarred and have no trust in the stitches at all now. I don’t know the point of this post, I guess I had to vent to decompress a bit 😢

Quadro RTX A6000 and RTX 4090 in same system work now!
I made a post on another subreddit a while ago, about the RTX A6000 and RTX 4090 not being able to work together in the same system.
I am glad to report, that I got it working now (probably due to newer drivers...)
Both drivers installed!
I am using the GeForce 535.98 Studio for the RTX 4090 and the 535.98 quadro rtx driver for the RTX A6000. I made some test renders in Blender and it works flawlessly! The A6000 gives a slight boost compared to just using the 4090 by itself. Very happy about this tho, because now I can keep working on my Unreal Engine projects using the 4090 and then switch to the A6000 for the additional VRAM that's needed for bigger renders. In the future, I am probably going to use a secondary pc for remote rendering with the A6000 tho, so I can keep working during the outsourced rendering.
TLDR: Using the RTX A6000 and RTX 4090 in the same system works now.
Installing is quite the hustle, but doable. Let me know in the comments in case you need help getting both of those cards to work together.

2023.06.03 22:16 FitEyes Questions I should ask my doctor about my OCT results?

I will be having an OCT test soon. This will be my 4th or 5th one. What would be 2 or 3 questions I should ask the doctor about my OCT results and what I should be watching for. We have such limited time together and my doctor doesn’t go into any detail unless I specifically ask about something.
If you've been diagnosed with glaucoma or one of many other eye conditions, you're likely familiar with the OCT test -- a non-invasive imaging technique. OCT has revolutionized the field of ophthalmology by providing high-resolution, cross-sectional images of ocular structures. It has become an invaluable tool for glaucoma diagnosis and monitoring. OCT utilizes near-infrared light to capture detailed images of the optic nerve head, retinal nerve fiber layer, and macula. These images allow ophthalmologists to assess the thickness and integrity of the nerve fibers, detect early signs of damage, and monitor disease progression over time. Additionally, OCT can aid in differentiating between various types of glaucoma, such as open-angle and angle-closure glaucoma, although other tests are also used to assess angle status (such as ultrasound biomicroscopy).
Understanding a few details of your OCT test results can help you become an active participant in your eye health journey. Here are three questions you can ask your doctor, along with things you should be aware of in your OCT test results.
1. "What changes, if any, do you see in my optic nerve and retinal thickness compared to my previous OCT tests?" The optic nerve and retinal thickness are critical indicators of glaucoma progression and response to treatment. By asking this question, you'll gain valuable insights into any changes that may have occurred since your last OCT test. Your ophthalmologist will assess the thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer, ganglion cell complex, and other relevant structures. Changes in these measurements can provide an early warning sign of disease progression or treatment effectiveness.
When reviewing the OCT results, pay attention to the thickness values of these structures. If there's a significant change, it could indicate further evaluation or adjustments to your treatment plan may be necessary. Keep in mind that small fluctuations within a certain range can be normal, so your doctor will provide the appropriate context based on your individual case.
2. "Are there signs of any new or worsening abnormalities, such as macular edema or drusen?" While glaucoma is a primary concern for us, it's essential to remember that other eye conditions can coexist or develop over time. Macular edema, characterized by fluid accumulation in the central part of the retina, can cause vision loss. Drusen, on the other hand, are small yellow deposits beneath the retina and can be indicative of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). By asking about these abnormalities, you demonstrate proactive engagement in your eye care.
During your discussion, inquire about any signs of macular edema or drusen and their impact on your overall eye health. Your ophthalmologist will carefully evaluate your OCT scans for the presence of these abnormalities and inform you if any further testing or treatment is necessary. Remember, early detection and intervention are crucial for managing these conditions effectively.
3. "How can we utilize these results to optimize my treatment plan and monitor disease progression?" Understanding the correlation between your OCT test results and your treatment plan is vital for managing glaucoma effectively. By asking this question, you invite your doctor to provide insights into how the OCT results influence your ongoing care.

2023.06.03 22:16 TruthTellerBot Critical bug... Game crashes computer

I can run it just fine. Everything was on max on 1440p, too, before turning stuff down to try and help with this issue.

Randomly while playing... My computer will just shut off, think for a second, and then turn back on. It doesn't happen in any other case than playing this game. I already have MSI afterburner installed, and I turned up the fan speed to near max, because I assume(?) it is happening because of overheating. The only available explanation I can find, anyway.

What do I do? What settings should I turn down? Could it be for another reason? Just bite the bullet and wait for a patch?

2023.06.03 22:15 Beginning_Air_2349 Vyvanse taker that wants tips

I've taken vyvanse for 2 years and i'm wondering if anyone here has any similar stories. I started to realise that the meds made my life harder instead of easier because I was on a higher dosage and often abused them, (still do sometimes but more under control). I decided that this winter break I wanted to quit cold turkey and I did, it was actually life changing. I felt depressed for like a week and then it was over, I felt my "spark" was back but ofc also had ADHD problems by being unfocused or just not caring about stuff. Recently it's been a stressful period as i'm ending school forever and had to get all work done to get my examina and I've also had to work my part time job to not get fired, I now had to start taking it again and abused it as usual after not using it for long which is bad. I've taken more than I should because I feel very exhausted and just want a break from everything but I can't. The last vyvanse I took was 80 mg (2x40) about 2 days ago and I still haven't slept a minute and I've had to be with my relatives now because they've come to visit from England but I've been acting weird because my brain chemistry has been f:ed up from taking vyvanse so many days in a row on a high dosage and I'm now done with everything, I'm quitting my part time job and I don't ever have to go to school again. Now I just have to ride this out but I'm just venting about how horrible vyvanse can be sometimes when you take too much and too late in the day, I'm now laying here after almost three days without sleep losing my mind with thin hair and muscles that hurt, no sense of smell or taste and I just want to know how you guys manage these stressful periods without it, I usually just use high dose vyvanse as a quick fix but now I feel like shit and I haven't felt like this since I quit cold turkey last time. It's truly a shit feeling to be so exhausted in you're body and mind while you can just hear you're heart pounding and pounding while rotting away in a dark room. I know that I won't do this shit again but how can I just get to sleep? I don't want to compensate with other drugs, I just want some damn real rest because I can't take this exhaustion anymore, it feels insane what vyvanse does to you, after not sleeping for three days it's now Saturday night and i'm afraid I won't be able to sleep until my big graduation day on Monday and if that's the case all my friends and family will see me in ugly crackhead state and that I'd rather die than go through, if I can't sleep i'm buying weed tomorrow because I don't care anymore I just want to sleep man.

2023.06.03 22:15 ImpeccablyIconic Physiognomy

Physiognomy - the study of the systematic correspondence of psychological characteristics to facial features or body structure.
This has been coined as cookoo science and rightly so due to charlatans using it for face reading and other BS. However like a broken clock is right twice a day, this too is correct in identifying consciously or sub consciously traits in a man.
e.g. Guys who are sad, look serious or sad usually have face that has droopy features. The mouth corner turn downwards over years of that meantal state as that is their default position. Their voice is not matter of fact, full of conviction cos they have doubts if what they are saying has any weight or any listeners. Their walk is anxious or robotic rather than at ease like a King rolling through his kingdom.
This is also a chicken and egg kinda situation… Do they look sad, depressed, serious cos they are not getting results with women or their default expressions is pushing women away. Whatever the case may be, mindset resonates making that physiognomy concrete and prominent. Contrast that with happy, fun guys.. do girls love their company that’s why they are happy or they are happy and that’s why girls love their company. This also gets plastered on happy face, eyes, tonality and walk which strangers identify just by look and vibe and feel it and if they feel it's real, accept it.
What’s the solution?
Motions creates emotions
Believe first and see later
Fake it till you make it.
Imagine, BE and roll in a world where you are happy and women love you. Any bad reactions? Externalize it.. that person much be jealous, weird. Avoid weirdos and reward fans.
Do this from now on for this to plaster in your vibe, eyes, tone and walk as you live your life. All your behaviors are byproduct of your mindset and self-image, even women.

I might be seeing things but I think he sometimes stares at me while we are dancing
I'm like hmmmmm, does he have a thing for me?

2023.06.03 22:15 Joadzilla Trump-appointed federal judge rules Tennessee’s anti-drag show law is ‘unconstitutional’
A federal judge in Tennessee has ruled that a state law limiting public drag show performances represented an “unconstitutional restriction on the freedom of speech.”
“As a matter of text alone, the (Adult Entertainment Act) is a content, and viewpoint-based restriction on speech. The AEA was passed for the impermissible purpose of chilling constitutionally-protected speech,” US District Court Judge Thomas Parker, an appointee of former President Donald Trump, said in a 70-page late-Friday ruling.
Parker, who called the law “unconstitutionally vague and substantially overbroad,” also barred the defendant in the case – the district attorney of Shelby County, which is home to Memphis – from enforcing the law in that county.
The court ruling comes after Friends of George’s, a Memphis-based nonprofit that produces drag performances and comedy sketches, sued in March to stop the law from going into effect, arguing it was a violation of its free speech. Parker then temporarily blocked the state from enforcing the ban as he considered the law’s constitutionality.
Tennessee Republicans, who hold supermajorities in the state legislature, earlier this year passed the measure to restrict public drag show performances, which was signed by Republican Gov. Bill Lee. The law sought to limit “adult cabaret performances” on public property to shield children from viewing them, threatening violators with a misdemeanor and repeat offenders with a felony. The ban specifically included “male or female impersonators” who perform in a way that is “harmful to minors.” It had been set to go into effect April 1.
“WE WON!” Friends of George’s wrote in a tweet Saturday. “Judge Parker has declared Tennessee’s anti-drag law unconstitutional!”
Tennessee officials have argued that the measure is not a full ban and is only intended to stop overtly sexual performances in front of minors. Parker, in his ruling, acknowledged the state’s “compelling interest in protecting the psychological and physical wellbeing of children” but ruled against the law as “an unconstitutional restriction on the freedom of speech.”
Tennessee Attorney General Jonathan Skrmetti said in a statement Saturday that his office was reviewing the order and expects to appeal “at the appropriate time.”
“The scope of this law has been misrepresented in public by those more interested in pressing a narrative than in reading the statutory text,” Skrmetti said. “The Adult Entertainment Act remains in effect outside of Shelby County. This narrowly-tailored law protects minors from exposure to sexually explicit performances. Its operative language is rooted in the U.S. Supreme Court’s long-established First Amendment precedent.”
CNN has also reached out to Lee’s office for comment.
Tennessee’s law is just one of a slew of other similar measures that Republican-led state legislatures across the country have considered this year.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is running for president, signed a bill last month that, among other things, gives his administration the power to take away licenses from establishments if they allow children into an “adult live performance,” widely interpreted as a crackdown on drag shows.
Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte signed legislation in May that prevents children from attending “sexually oriented shows” and from being present at obscene performances on public property. It specifically targets drag story hours, which it defines as “an event hosted by a drag queen or drag king who reads children’s books and engages in other learning activities with minor children present.”
Republicans say the performances – which often feature men dressing as women in exaggerated makeup while singing or entertaining a crowd, though some shows feature bawdier content – expose children to sexual themes and imagery that are inappropriate. LGBTQ advocates, however, argue that not all drag shows are sexual in nature and laws such as the ones in Montana and Tennessee stigmatize the community and could violate the First Amendment.

2023.06.03 22:14 Lapralapso Dealing with the childhood friend who's turned into a complete a-hole?

There's this friend I have, who I've known since I was in Grade 6 (I'm in my 2nd year of university now), and initially the dude was fine, and for years he still was, but recently he's grown to become a total degrading, full-of-himself asshole after entering a pretty toxic friend group. I have no idea what to do in this case, whether or not to distance myself.
Listing some examples of his behaviour:
- Whining, and I MEAN whining if he doesn't get shotgun in a car.
- Constantly calls me obese even though I've lost 40 pounds and don't even remotely look fat anymore (he does it as a "joke", but it's nonstop now and it's just not reaching me the right way anymore. Plus, imo it's a sh*t joke to make).
- Constantly worships his other friend group in front of all of us, and it's pretty much 75% of what he talks about when hanging out with us. How "great" and "awesome" they all are compared to us.
- Won't let anyone else take aux when driving since his music taste is "superior" even though no one in the car is enjoying it.
- Uses me as the brunt of jokes.
- Loves to make tons of small side comments on ANYTHING I say trying to make me feel stupid (ex/, me talking about buying a dream car and then him talking about an accident I got in 2 years ago saying I'm too stupid to drive).
- He's never wrong. He's never wrong. Good luck arguing with him.
- He's obviously better than everyone and needs to be treated special (hence the need to be in shotgun and need to always be on aux).
- Talks to his own parents like he's the one in charge. Calls his dad "fatass" and orders him around. Orders me around to do stuff for him even though he has no right to do so.
- Whenever I try to talk about this new girl I'm interested in to him, he degrades me saying I have no chance and look like sh*t.
It's honestly reached my breaking point now and I can't stand much more of his godawful behaviour. He's turned into such an asshole compared to who he used to be and such an insufferable POS that I can see a future without him in it and I'm totally fine with that. I just don't know how to go about leaving him in the past.

2023.06.03 22:14 Breezyrain The Effects of Mass-Streaming and Mass-Buying

Let me preface this with: I have streamed, I have bought multiple versions of the same album, and I have nothing in particular against fandoms that do this. This post is not to witch-hunt or villainize but just have a frank conversation (because all fandoms are guilty lol). Also, sorry for how long it is lol.

The Origin
Now that I've gotten that out of the way, I wanted to have a conversation on the implications of streaming and buying in large quantities. I'd consider ARMY the real pioneers of these tactics, experts in getting BTS's name out there. I've always admired their dedication. They read the rules of engagement and bypassed them entirely to the point where charts, music shows, and other organizations had to take notice. They've reformed and updated their rules. That's impact.
The Impact
Subjectively, it's incredibly clever. ARMY were able to take an up-and-coming group and put them in competition with bigger groups. They, along with other fandoms were able to make the ever prickly and xenophobic Western market by storm. They managed to make sure the BTS name was a topic of discussion when they otherwise wouldn't. They managed to weaponize fandom engagement into something that noticeably benefited the group they stanned. Nowadays BTS doesn't need these methods as much because they've established themselves as worldwide names, but it would be a lie to say their initial growth wasn't bolstered by all this.
The Adaption
And now we're at the peak of adoption so to say, other groups and fandoms have taken notice and adopted the same methodology. All of them. There's still methods being developed like playlisting, but ultimately the peak goals have been established. Get groups noticed and paid. This hasn't just affected fandoms and groups, but also companies. Companies adapted to mass-buying and implemented benefits for buying even more albums, having random collectible cards or knickknacks that encouraged even more copies. Companies adapted to mass-streaming by promising fans things like, letting certain idols/groups debut or having their idols perform in special outfits (and you best bet I fell for this one to see aespa performing in suits).
The Money
So now each year, groups reach new album sales peaks and the charts have to combat streaming to even the playing ground. But when is too much, too much? It used to be that most albums had 1 or 2 versions, now it's common for groups to have 5+. It used to be that groups would have a couple preorder benefits, but now you can buy 20 whole albums for the complete set of cards for only one shop. It's super easy to buy hundreds of albums to complete your collections. Companies have added photocards to merch, seeing albums pop off just by adding collectibles. Now fans can spend thousands on groups and the "price" of hardcore stanning only goes up. And even hardcore stans have a limit for how much they're willing to pay for what's essentially a hobby. Even hardcore stans have so much appetite for what's essentially gambling, with the random photocards and album versions. FOMO has a limit, because these hardcore stans eventually drop out of the race unless they go into debt or are incredibly rich.
The Burnout
It used to be that fans could play the same songs in a playlist but now they can buy streaming passes, pay for other people to stream, etc. And now fans even stream variety videos and fancams. I like kpop songs but dedicating hours of my life to one activity leads to burnout. I get tired of the same song after hearing it 10 times in a row. I love kpop groups but single-minded focus makes me increasingly aware of their flaws, at some point I self-reflect a bit. A boon of kpop stanning is escapism but is it truly escapism if the fandom experience becomes a job or "bills" to pay for the experience of having your favorite groups succeed? Add in the guilt-tripping for not being a "true fan" and what can be a fairly healthy hobby, becomes toxic feedback into giving your all for a couple extra endorphins.
The Downsides
There are exceptions to the rule like Fifty-Fifty managing to amass incredible streams "organically". But these methods have removed an element of surprise. Remove all the streaming, who actually charted? Remove all the mass buying, who actually has more fans buying albums? What even is real anymore? And all the stupid fandom wars because fake is essentially calling each other fake. It used to be that groups could "Specialize", Sistar could top the charts and barely sell albums. Top groups like SNSD could sell out concerts, get some CFs, and sell albums and chart mid-way. Ultimately, the main thing that mattered was a group could turn a profit and continue their work. But now everything is a comparison. Anything less than the best is a statement of how weak a fandom is, how a group is flopping for being unable to get both public interest and a fandom willing to sacrifice and play the game. Something is going to give and it's probably fans.
Mass streaming and buying ultimately harms fans and their enjoyment in high doses.

Hi, I have a VW Caddy 4motion from 2013. I changed the DMF and so had to remove the transfer case. I removed the hex bolt and removed the spline with a small pry bar. I tapped it in while I was turning it around. After reinstalling everything I've an imbalance at 120km/h. Did I missed something?

2023.06.03 22:13 KyleKKent Out of Cruel Space, part 702

Capes and Conundrums
“So wait, I missed what?” Robin asks into his communicator. Apparently whatever was going back at base was too cool for him to be left out of.
“New kit! An infinite grenade launcher, what’s looking like magic freaking wands, explosive gel and more! Hell! We can all get Pop Guns now?”
“Aren’t those the rifles that WILL pop your shoulder out of it’s socket if you fire it wrong?”
“Yep! Man portable and dangerous to starfighters!” The man on the other end boasts.
“And pop your ears out if you don’t have some kind of Axiom bullshit to silence it or hearing protection.”
“Right, well maybe it’s just me, but I think a gun that can kick people that are neither being shot by it or shooting it is a little excessive.” Robin remarks. “I’ll check the firing range and armoury later. Is there anything else?”
“We can kick up flaming tornadoes with some of the new toys?” The man on the other side asks.
“Stop interrupting my date.” Robin says before hanging up.
“That was kind of rude.” Alviara notes and Robin shrugs before pausing.
“Wait, is that on my part or on...” He starts to ask before a scream cuts through the air. It’s one of the teenagers that have been more or less stalking them.
“Should we?” He asks and Alviara nods and then proves herself to be no slouch in Axiom movement as she teleports to the edge of the roof. Robin is there in a moment. The girls are scattering away from something with screams of terror, several are trying to fight something off. Something that Robin tackles directly into and rolls with it along the edge of a skyscraper tier before getting his hand around their throat.
His pinned target has not been stunned and has zero chill as a bloody knife is thrust towards Robin’s eye and he’s forced to give up the grip to save his eye.
“What’s the matter!? I thought you liked killers around here? What’s the matter? Not enough purple?” The demented Lutrin asks. She has a vaguely stained purple jacket open to reveal a sports bra underneath and she’s squeezed into filthy and torn pants, also stained purple. Her left wrist has a small electrical fob on it with a hollow Green Triangle on it. A Lutrin symbol of health, a medical band.
“Shit, shit! Shit!” Alviara exclaims over the wounded teenager. “You! Call an ambulance! I need to keep pressure on the wound or she’s going to bleed out!”
“Who are you?” Robin asks and the Lutrin starts smiling wide.
“I...” She begins and he’s already moving. He just wanted her somewhat distracted. But apparently she’s far from that unalert as she swings the knife a few more times before vanishing in a chaotic whirl of Axiom and appearing behind him. He turns in time to catch the blow, but she’s enhanced it in such a way that he’s sent skidding to the edge of the tier even as she break she breaks her own fist.
“Yeowchkabibbles! Big man’s been eating his wheeties!” She exclaims in a tone that shifts through at least three levels of mania. “Hey! You’re CHEATing!”
“Idiot.” Robin remarks as he tucks away the medical band he ripped off her wrist. It should have all the information he needs on her. Now he just needs to take her down.
“Cheating cheating CHEATING!” She rants and then the Axiom jolts around her according to her demented and manic will.
Robin parries what seems to be a ghost of the woman as he just barely gets his boot knife up in time. The Axiom twists and he drives his opposite elbow into the forming gut of another illusion as the original blurs at him while wildly swinging the knife.
She catches a solid boot in the stomach and is sent tumbling. Her focus on the Axiom constructs never wavers though despite her rising up with a groan and Robin catches the wrist of the rallied illusion that walks on air out above the street.
“Naughty naughty... little boys are for cutting not for...” The madwoman begins to rant as she gathers her knife up again and Robin’s patience dies.
Both illusions receive bone snapping blows and his knife buries itself in her left knee and as she starts to scream he draws his pistol, takes aim, and then shatters her right kneecap with a single shot.
The illusions fade and before the Madwoman can even focus Robin stomps on her arm and feels it snap. She screams in agony.
“I don’t know what kind of crazy you are. But a word of advice. Don’t start fights you can’t finish. Especially not with the armed and dangerous.” Robin chides her and he hears a slow clap. Above is a Feli woman slowly applauding.
“I was indeed wondering what would happen if this little comic book city would have an actual comic come to life. Good to know we’re in a darker version like Alan Moore’s Watchmen.”
“Did you set this woman loose?” Robin asks.
“Confessing to such a thing would-” The woman begins before a bullet crashes into an energy shield she has outside the visible spectrum. “Oh! Very nice! Well placed shot! That would have gone clear through my collarbone!”
“Surrender or die.” Robin says lowly and the Feli grins.
“No.” She says before suddenly seizing up and then her appearance fades entirely as a prosthetic body falls to the ground like a puppet with it’s strings cut.
“Hmm...” Robin mutters. In the distance he can hear the ambulance coming and it’s been maybe three minutes since they were called. So that’s good reaction time if nothing else. Still... who’s doing this and why? He needs to report this directly to Admiral Hynala. This is the sort of thing that requires his direct attention.
“Why... why so serious?” The Joker wannabe asks and Robin resists the urge to just shoot her in the head. She’s not going anywhere and is in too much pain to actually cause further harm.
He resists the urge to threaten the idiot as he dials the contact for the Admiral’s direct contact. It’s every inch an emergencies only thing and he risks a heft pay dock if he uses it frivolously.
“Admiral Hynala.” The all business voice of the local admiral states.
“I’ve just stopped a Joker cosplayer from murdering a young woman and an ambulance is on approach. We will need to speak, preferably in person, when I can clear out all the hospital and police formalities.”
“Anything else?”
“Someone with a prosthetic body that projected the image of a Feli woman all but claimed responsibility. So you need to get into contact with the police so we can get all the information possible out of the prosthesis.” Robin states.
“Well reasoned soldier. Anything else?”
“The attacked civilian seems like she’ll make it. Especially as the Ambulance is currently swooping in. So I’ll say no. I will update you whenever new information becomes available.” Robin reports before hanging up. Perhaps rude and he’ll get a bit of a telling off later, but honestly? Priorities.
“How is she?” Robin asks as he kneels down next to Alviarna.
“She’s in shock, but the bleeding is staunched. She’ll live. What about...?” Alviarna asks as she looks over towards the injured and bleeding attacker.
“Disabled, temporarily. Healing comas mean anything shy of a decapitation or ripping out her heart can be excused as non-lethal. So long as she doesn’t pull the knife out like an idiot, she’ll live.”
Police cruisers swoop into the area. Good, he might not have heard it, but clearly there was sense enough to call the police. Good. Very good.
“Hopefully our next date doesn’t end so excitedly.” Robin says with a rueful smile towards Alviarna.
“Hopefully.” She confirms.
“Soldier.” Admiral Hynala says as he steps up beside Robin. The man is staring at a monitor that’s just watching the woman in the interrogation room. She had been placed under a small scale healing coma and was no longer at risk of death.
“Her name is Hezalia Cross.” Robin states. “We pulled most of her information off the medical bracelet I got off her. She’s a severe paranoid schizophrenic. A long history of lashing out violently and apparently went missing three years ago. There were apparently markings that she was experimented on, including numerous suture markings over her scalp. These have been cleared away by the healing coma.
“What have they gotten out of her?”
“She’s latched onto the Joker Character. What has me concerned however is her supposed handler. From the interrogation it was a hundred different people bringing her the Joker merchandise and such, but they all acted like one person. Meaning the Feli illusion overtop the prosthetic body could have been anyone, anywhere and to be frank, anything. No species is off the suspect list, and due to the way that these bodies work the perpetrator might not even be in the Skathac system.”
“The question of why is one I cannot help but ask.” Admiral Hynala says.
“That’s the information we don’t have. Information chuckles in there can’t give us.”
“... You pity her.”
“This isn’t the Joker. This isn’t a genius madman with complete and total nihilism trying to break the minds and souls of those around them. This woman isn’t even at the level of Victor Zsasz with a fanatic need to cut people. This is a sick woman who lashes out at her nightmares and I’ve shot, stomped and stabbed her. She should be in a padded cell and slowly working her way out of the hell she’s trapped in, not in an interrogation chamber.”
“I’m glad you’ve kept perspective. You will have some mandatory counselling just in case.” Admiral Hynala states. “Still... it looks like we have more drama on the horizon.”
“Perhaps not.” An officer says walking up to them. “Detective Savage.”
“A pleasure, what have you found?”
“This young woman had been used as a case study and her mind was partially digitized. We’ve caught the program. Effectively her mysterious benefactor was her own cyber-clone. The paranoid schizophrenia with violent tendencies has manifested in different ways digitally and caused her digital daughter to pull her out of her padded cell and try and ‘help’ her by giving her a persona to focus on and wanted to ‘release her to the wild’ where she could be free. The backup to Skathac was a lower Centris Spire chosen at random.”
“I must say, while this is somewhat anti-climatic it is VERY encouraging to see such competence in our allies.” Admiral Hynala states. “Might I inquire as to how you discovered this all so quickly?”
“We would have had it one way or the other. She was still wearing her medical band when she was let loose. Your soldier here ripped it off, but he was assuming she might still be able to escape at the time. So grabbing evidence when opportune is just smart. Anyways, it had a full list of her side effects and issues including the catastrophic failure of trying to use a cybernetic uplink to try and effectively speed her her mental healing. The end result was that they had two of her and one of them was living in cyberspace and had already gotten out into the network like a virus.”
“I see, and how did you catch her?”
“She craves sensation and is paranoid. She bound herself into a main body and destroyed it’s ability to contact a larger network for fear of it eating her. Which meant that we were able to trace things back fairly easily.”
“And being insane means she’s not exactly good at covering her tracks.” Robin notes.
“Exactly.” Detective Savage says. “This is why I argued long and hard with the Chief of Police against the Gothamization of the Skathac. Even if it brings in a lot of money the city of Gotham in the comic books is synonymous with corruption, crime and madness. None of which are good things. Here is madness. How long until Crime and Corruption are rampant as well? How long until this city is Gotham but real?”
“It won’t be. Comics have to follow certain rules. You don’t. There’s nothing stopping you from just shooting the lunatics.” Robin assures her.
“And what stopped you from doing so?” She asks immediately and he gives her an odd look.
“Ma’am. If not for healing comas then she’d be crippled for life or dead. Which is as gentle as I’m willing to go with someone trying to be a legit supervillain. If she was even more threatening, then I would have just straight up killed her and then needed some real therapy for murdering a mentally invalid woman.” Robin says and Detective Savage gives him a long look. The Sonir woman doesn’t break the gaze as she looks for something in him.
“I see. I see... Very much the, do what needs to be done then beg forgiveness type.”
“It works.” Robin says.
“What’s your schedule like?” Detective Savage asks.
“Because it relates to my next question.”
“Which is?” Robin presses.
“Are you seeing anyone?” She asks and Robin blinks.
“I’ll leave you two love bats at it then. I’ll request a formal report on this situation when I return to our base.” Admiral Hynala states with a smirk. It can be hard to not laugh at his soldiers and the silly situations they get caught up in.

2023.06.03 22:13 EagleFly_5 [3 June 2023, Free, Mod/Rule] Sales posts are NOT allowed here, selling your own event tickets or trying to get $ for tix = get banned. 🔨

Hi all, with summer just about here now in June 2023, I’m glad this subreddit’s “second wind” since mid-spring in April 2023 is working as intended for you all to discover fun events or promote events you’re affiliated with in New York City!
However there’s been a recent influx of users coming on this subreddit selling tickets to events to personally profit off it. Now the main focus of this subreddit is to promote events across New York City which is fine, but we won’t facilitate a platform to sell your tickets and gain some money off that. In other cases, it’s spam, and sometimes not worth the trouble.
If sales posts don’t belong on NYC or NewYorkCity, AvesNYC, or FoodNYC per their subreddit rules (or most other local NYC/borough subs), they certainly don’t belong here. So as a reminder & new-ish rule …

This subreddit is not a home to sell (or resell) your own tickets to events/concerts/etc in the city. If you want to sell your own tickets to events in NYC, consider posting on NYList where general buying/selling posts belong, AvesNYC_Tix to buy/sell tickets for EDM/raves/dance events, on NYCConcerts, where buying/selling posts for concerts belong. That way people can still be interested if so desired. Do your own due diligence as always buying goods of the internet.

Moderation’s been fairly lax given it’s a chill sub, but there won’t be any hesitancy to ban people for that. First time offenders will be be banned for 31 days, second offense will be permanently banned.
Have a wonderful summer, and stay golden folks! ☀️
TL-DR: Promoting your events here is fine, and the primary goal of this subreddit. Selling your own individual tickets to events are not permitted here, don’t use this subreddit to get rich, and the last thing moderators want to do is play whack-a-mole with scammers if a sale goes south. Other communities exist for this to sell tickets for concerts, sporting events, raves/music, etc. Break this rule once = a month ban, break this rule twice = permanent ban.

2023.06.03 22:13 PCFanboy86 Ryzen 7 5700G SoC degradation

Running a very high vSoC, say, 1.4v will cause degradation of the chip, or so I’ve been told. My question is: is the degradation caused by the high voltage, or the high temperature that goes alongside it? My first impression would be the latter, since there are extreme voltages that can be run with LN2, and this doesn’t kill or degrade the chip? Does it work like that? In such case, can I run high voltages considering I have a good CPU cooler? (Arctic LFII 360).
