2023.06.09 17:44 Mission-Raccoon9432 Character Study: "The Picture of Aqua Gray" . Extra Edition . PART VIII
"So that was the story of Dorian Gray’s parentage. Crudely as it had been told to him, it had yet stirred him by its suggestion of a strange, almost modern romance. A beautiful woman risking everything for a mad passion. A few wild weeks of happiness cut short by a hideous, treacherous crime [NOTE: HER FATHER, DORIAN'S GRANDFATHER KILLs HER LOVER, DORIAN'S FATHER]. Months of voiceless agony, and then a child born in pain. The mother snatched away by death, the boy left to solitude and the tyranny of an old and loveless man [NOTE: HIS GRANDFATHER]. Yes; it was an interesting background. It posed the lad, made him more perfect, as it were. Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic. Worlds had to be in travail, that the meanest flower might blow.... " (Chapter III)Isn't this interesting? And there is another very cool symbol. Dorian - after he witnessed the first changed in his potrait - had to hide the picture in a diferent room of his mansion where nobody could find it and witness "his soul" which is captivated in that portrait that gets uglier and uglier with each day of his sinful life. About that room:
"He had not entered the place for more than four years—not, indeed, since he had used it first as a play-room when he was a child, and then as a study when he grew somewhat older. It was a large, well-proportioned room, which had been specially built by the last Lord Kelso for the use of the little grandson whom, for his strange likeness to his mother, and also for other reasons, he had always hated and desired to keep at a distance." (Chapter X)So we have: A drama between mother and father, child born in pain, mother dies after giving birth, boy left to soltitude and tyranny of his grandfather who hates him for physical likeness to his mother (in PART II we wrote: Gorou would remind his grandfather every day of his own failure and guilt for losing his daughter), always hated his grandson. This is just literally everything we found out in PART II of our character study!
"But Juliet! Harry, imagine a girl, hardly seventeen years of age, with a little, flowerlike face, a small Greek head with plaited coils of dark-brown hair, eyes that were violet wells of passion, lips that were like the petals of a rose. She was the loveliest thing I had ever seen in my life. You said to me once that pathos left you unmoved, but that beauty, mere beauty, could fill your eyes with tears. I tell you, Harry, I could hardly see this girl for the mist of tears that came across me. And her voice—I never heard such a voice. It was very low at first, with deep mellow notes that seemed to fall singly upon one’s ear. Then it became a little louder, and sounded like a flute or a distant hautboy. In the garden-scene it had all the tremulous ecstasy that one hears just before dawn when nightingales are singing. There were moments, later on, when it had the wild passion of violins. You know how a voice can stir one. [...] Harry, I do love her. She is everything to me in life. Night after night I go to see her play. One evening she is Rosalind, and the next evening she is Imogen. I have seen her die in the gloom of an Italian tomb, sucking the poison from her lover’s lips. [...] I have seen her in every age and in every costume."
"Lips that Shakespeare taught to speak have whispered their secret in my ear. I have had the arms of Rosalind around me, and kissed Juliet on the mouth.”
“Well, I can’t help going to see Sibyl play,” he cried, “even if it is only for a single act. I get hungry for her presence; and when I think of the wonderful soul that is hidden away in that little ivory body, I am filled with awe.”
“You can dine with me tonight, Dorian, can’t you?”
He shook his head. “Tonight she is Imogen,” he answered, “and tomorrow night she will be Juliet.”
“When is she Sibyl Vane?”
“I congratulate you.”
"My God, Harry, how I worship her!”
“Harry! Sibyl Vane is sacred!”
"You'll find people with those eyes ... once in a while. Deceptive eyes that have the power to make lies look like truths. It's the best quality for an actor"The concept of great acting is basically reduced in the symbol of eyes for the sake of keeping the lore a little bit simpler in ONK, but essentially he just means that sometimes there are special actors who can just perform like if they are literally what they perform.
"Ordinary women never appeal to one’s imagination. They are limited to their century. No glamour ever transfigures them. One knows their minds as easily as one knows their bonnets. One can always find them. There is no mystery in any of them. They ride in the park in the morning and chatter at tea-parties in the afternoon. They have their stereotyped smile and their fashionable manner. They are quite obvious. But an actress! How different an actress is! Harry! why didn’t you tell me that the only thing worth loving is an actress?"Well, in a screwed way this is also applicable to Ryosuke's issue, who loved Ai for her role but hated her for her real self and eventually kills her for it, as her real self not only is different but essentially is in total opposition to her role as an idol. Dorian describes a similar screwed misogynistic view on women: The actress is mystery and the only thing worth to love, the ordinary woman is the absolute opposite of it, disappointing and unworthy to be loved.
"A hideous Jew, in the most amazing waistcoat I ever beheld in my life, was standing at the entrance, smoking a vile cigar. He had greasy ringlets, and an enormous diamond blazed in the centre of a soiled shirt. ‘Have a box, my Lord?’ he said, when he saw me, and he took off his hat with an air of gorgeous servility. There was something about him, Harry, that amused me. He was such a monster."
"On the first night I was at the theatre, the horrid old Jew came round to the box after the performance was over and offered to take me behind the scenes and introduce me to her. I was furious with him, and told him that Juliet had been dead for hundreds of years and that her body was lying in a marble tomb in Verona. I think, from his blank look of amazement, that he was under the impression that I had taken too much champagne, or something.”This is just a little odd observation, in the epilog we'll find a more cheerful representation of Kindaichi (well, cheerfulness is of course a limited ressource when it comes down to that man :))
“I am not surprised” replied Harry.
"And yet if it had been merely an illusion, how terrible it was to think that conscience could raise such fearful phantoms, and give them visible form, and make them move before one! What sort of life would his be if, day and night, shadows of his crime were to peer at him from silent corners, to mock him from secret places, to whisper in his ear as he sat at the feast, to wake him with icy fingers as he lay asleep! As the thought crept through his brain, he grew pale with terror, and the air seemed to him to have become suddenly colder. Oh! in what a wild hour of madness he had killed his friend! How ghastly the mere memory of the scene! He saw it all again. Each hideous detail came back to him with added horror. Out of the black cave of time, terrible and swathed in scarlet, rose the image of his sin. "18 years after Sibyl's suicide her brother James Vane found out Dorian's identity and swore to kill him. He saw Vane lurking for him and panicked, feared for his life. But later he'd reflect that this must've been just a phantom. That's the story behind that quote in that novel. However he would calm after some days and think that he's out of danger.
It was not till the third day that he ventured to go out. There was something in the clear, pine-scented air of that winter morning that seemed to bring him back his joyousness and his ardour for life. But it was not merely the physical conditions of environment that had caused the change. His own nature had revolted against the excess of anguish that had sought to maim and mar the perfection of its calm. With subtle and finely wrought temperaments it is always so. Their strong passions must either bruise or bend. They either slay the man, or themselves die. Shallow sorrows and shallow loves live on. The loves and sorrows that are great are destroyed by their own plenitude. Besides, he had convinced himself that he had been the victim of a terror-stricken imagination, and looked back now on his fears with something of pity and not a little of contempt.
"Our father died long ago. There's no way left to avenge Ai. So what should I do? My... revenge..." (C 68)

2023.06.09 17:42 Alfonse215 K2 Diary 8: Fission Power and New Science
Last time, we upgraded our power to 300 MW on the basis of using water. Now it's time to undo that and move to something else.submitted by Alfonse215 to factorio [link] [comments]
Fission and TestingBecause U-235 is much more precious in K2 than vanilla, I decided to go back to older reactor designs. The first reactor I ever designed had throttling built-in: it didn't add fuel unless it was running low on steam. So I'm going back to that, though the implementation will be quite different.
Also, I discovered that K2 doesn't give you a 100% reactor bonus anymore; it's only 25%. So my dreams of a 2x2 reactor that gives 4 GW are dashed. But 1.5 GW is fine for the time being.
K2 also rescaled pretty much everything with regard to fission reactors (though for some reason they didn't rename them). They give 250 MW of energy, heat exchangers each absorb 50 MW of heat, consume 250 watesec, and turbines each generate 10 MW of energy. This makes the ratios much easier to work with.
But the biggest improvement K2 makes for fission is that steam contains a higher energy density than in vanilla. To get just 1.1GW in vanilla, you need ten water pumps. In K2, you can get 1.5 GW of power from just 6 pumps. The ratio of exchangers to pumps is also exactly 5:1.
What all this means is that its much easier to build a working reactor setup in K2 compared to vanilla. This makes sense, as fission is no longer the end-game power plant of choice (ignoring UPS, of course). Speaking of UPS, since you can build them much more compactly, K2's nuclear setups are probably better in GW/UPS terms. Though not much.
K2 also gives you gigantic fluid tanks that you can use to regulate the reactor, so you don't have a bunch of plumbing everywhere. Here's my overall setup:
Power is Good
Each of the three exchanger setups is isolated from the other two... mostly. I do have some pumps that are used if steam from one tank setup significantly exceeds the steam from another. This is mostly just to make sure that things stay relatively even.
The biggest difficulty in regulating reactors isn't telling when to insert fuel; it's telling when not to. You can't just say "steam is low, insert fuel", because the time between inserting the fuel and the steam getting high enough is extremely long. You'll constantly be inserting fuel until you fill up the reactor's capacity, and then it stays on for way too long.
So my setup uses an RS latch to detect when the reactor is on vs. off. One of the 4 inserters is the primary inserter; all of the other inserters only insert fuel when they see the primary inserter do so (and each inserter is limited to inserting 1 item). The reactor is latched to being "on" when the primary inserter inserts fuel. And it will never insert fuel if the reactor is "on". The reactor is unlatched to "off" when a spent fuel cell is removed.
So you only insert fuel when the reactor is off and the steam condition is met.
Unfortunately, I realized a small flaw with my design: the S signal being set is what constitutes the "off" state. This was very useful for detecting "off and steam low" (simply adding S from two different sources). But this means the system isn't self-starting. You must manually insert the first fuel cell (or manually put a spent fuel cell in the reactor).
And putting fuel cells in your inventory causes damage now. So that was fun. But that was always going to be a problem, since I don't have logistics chests yet.
Also, note that I built this design in a testbed map. I wanted to use Editor Extensions to spawn a separate shard within my main K2 map, but unfortunately, activating the testbed shard doesn't actually pause the main map. Biters are still evolving, power is still being consumed, etc. So I just switch to a different map when I want to devise setups like this, then bring the blueprints back to the main map.
Yellow Science is WeirdPreviously, I talked about the weird design of K2's ingredients list for purple science. They weren't especially useful by themselves (unlike vanilla), and they weren't exactly in common use as intermediates.
K2's yellow science ingredients are even stranger.
Blue circuits and LDS are taken from vanilla. Both of these make sense from the standpoint of general utility (particularly among stuff that gets built from yellow science). But there's always been an annoying issue: they're also both (nearly) direct components of space science. Thus space science feels like yellow science, only *more*.
But flying robot frames more than make up for it. They have a very long and complex synthesis pathway (in vanilla terms), and they involve a number of slow-to-produce intermediate products. And if you can master their construction, you get bots. Thus, yellow science encourages you to get bots, which is something a novice player might not understand they even want. Especially given how hard frames are to produce.
But K2 replaces flying robot frames with... rocket fuel? You know, the other component of rocket parts. That just seems like a really bizarre change design-wise. Yes, veteran Factorio players don't need to be told to make flying robot frames; they're going right for them the second they get blue science done. But rocket fuel is such a bland choice.
Now, there is something going on here. In K2, space science isn't as important as in vanilla, because that's not the end of the tech tree. In fact, K2's tech tree post-purple and yellow splits into 3 paths: space science, matter science, and advanced science (what, did you run out of descriptive words there?), all leading to the final tier: singularity science. This means that a player can choose not to go for space science for a while and go for the other two instead.
But that doesn't justify using rocket fuel. It doesn't even have a complex synthesis chain like flying robot frames. You just add more light oil and some means of generating oxygen, and now you have rocket fuel.
Rocket Fuel from WaterNow that we've gotten that out of the way, let's make some.
Krastorio 2 seems to love having multiple ways to make the same stuff. There are 3 separate ways to make rocket fuel: from light oil (presumably some from of RP-1/LOX), from hydrogen chloride (any idea what propellant this alludes to?), and from ammonia gas (no doubt nitrogen tetroxide & hydrazine ). The latter involves pulling nitrogen out of the air (since nothing else can create it) and processing it into ammonia.
Unfortunately, every single one requires oxygen, and therefore every single one produces a bunch of extra hydrogen. OK, technically you can produce the oxygen you need via condensation, but despite my incentives to just burn uranium fuel cells, I'm not doing that. Also, I have to produce hydrogen anyway to make the ammonia; it's just that producing enough oxygen by electrolysis means making spare hydrogen.
The ammonia version doesn't require any material input save water for electrolysis, and I love making useful stuff from just water. So here we go:
37 MW for 50 fuel per minute
That's a lot of power for relatively little fuel; I could use the same power to get about 3x the fuel from coal liquefaction.
But, as I have built no lithium processing or even mineral water extraction (I should probably do that), my only source for precious tritium to run my portable fusion reactors is reprocessing spent uranium fuel cells. So being stupidly power hungry isn't a bug; it's a feature.
Also, I still haven't even hit 500 MW of consumption, so it's not like I'm running out of power.
Next TimeI'm running out of uranium. I started expanding towards the new patch, but then I decided that killing biters was boring so I got yellow science instead. So I guess I'll finish that expansion and move forward from there. And perhaps spreading U-238 to the bugs would be useful.
Lithium seems vaguely useful, so I will probably start in on that next. But I'm also beginning the process of transitioning to a bot-based hub. Since there's still a lot of game left, and I'll probably start building megabase blocks before getting too deep into the final trio of techs, it's best to make it easy to add new kinds of infrastructure. I just need to convert the bottom of my bus so that it inserts stuff into logistics chests.

A friend send me two packages from BC and after they arrived to Toronto, the delivery was never attempted and now it is stuck in the facility. I call Canada post and they said I have to wait 3 weeks just so they can find where the package is in the facility. There are food items in it and by that time everything will probably be expired. Does it really take 3 weeks and will I ever get my packages? Both of the packages have the same issue.submitted by Top_Road4993 to CanadaPost [link] [comments]
