2023.06.09 17:20 GettingRedi ConvoyFlashlights will be “going dark” on 12th and 13th June.

Don't Let Reddit Kill 3rd Party Apps!

What's going on?

A recent Reddit policy change threatens to kill many beloved third-party mobile apps, making a great many quality-of-life features not seen in the official mobile app permanently inaccessible to users.
On May 31, 2023, Reddit announced they were raising the price to make calls to their API from being free to a level that will kill every third party app on Reddit, from Apollo to Reddit is Fun to Narwhal to BaconReader.
Even if you're not a mobile user and don't use any of those apps, this is a step toward killing other ways of customizing Reddit, such as Reddit Enhancement Suite or the use of the old.reddit.com desktop interface .
This isn't only a problem on the user level: many subreddit moderators depend on tools only available outside the official app to keep their communities on-topic and spam-free.

What's the plan?

On June 12th, many subreddits will be going dark to protest this policy. Some will return after 48 hours: others will go away permanently unless the issue is adequately addressed, since many moderators aren't able to put in the work they do with the poor tools available through the official app. This isn't something any of us do lightly: we do what we do because we love Reddit, and we truly believe this change will make it impossible to keep doing what we love.
The two-day blackout isn't the goal, and it isn't the end. Should things reach the 14th with no sign of Reddit choosing to fix what they've broken, we'll use the community and buzz we've built between then and now as a tool for further action.
What can you do?
  1. Complain. Message the mods of /reddit.com, who are the admins of the site: message reddit: submit a support request: comment in relevant threads on /reddit, such as this one, leave a negative review on their official iOS or Android app- and sign your username in support to this post.
  2. Spread the word. Rabble-rouse on related subreddits. Meme it up, make it spicy. Bitch about it to your cat. Suggest anyone you know who moderates a subreddit join us at our sister sub at /ModCoord - but please don't pester mods you don't know by simply spamming their modmail.
  3. Boycott and spread the word...to Reddit's competition! Stay off Reddit entirely on June 12th through the 13th- instead, take to your favorite non-Reddit platform of choice and make some noise in support!
  4. Don't be a jerk. As upsetting this may be, threats, profanity and vandalism will be worse than useless in getting people on our side. Please make every effort to be as restrained, polite, reasonable and law-abiding as possible. This includes not harassing moderators of subreddits who have chosen not to take part: no one likes a missionary, a used-car salesman, or a flame warrior.

2023.06.09 17:20 DrCGDskin Unbelievable Story

I wouldn’t believe this story if you told it to me. But here we are. I bought a couple Form 4s when I lived in Georgia 2 years ago. No stamp came back in time before having to move to Tennessee a full year later. Had to void/cancel, wait 90 days, then reapply. The “new” eform system was recently released and I was encouraged not to worry, that I would get them within a few months. I reapplied same day my check returned, after rushing to get new drivers license, tags, etc to facilitate the process. Had a one year position in Tennessee that came to an end approx 9 months into the process (excluding the 90day void period wait). Packed up to move to Texas with plans of canceling the stamp when I arrive, hoping that maybe the day before we move I magically get the stamp. Well, here we are. After a 3 day move with the kids, we arrive at night and get to bed. I wake up this morning with an email that my stamp came in. 2 year wait. And I’m out of state for less than 12 hours when the stamp arrives. What are my options? My wife still works in Tennessee, and I believe she is already on the trust. The FFL says he does not think she can pick it up, only I can. Can I somehow void the stamp? Can I get an out of state transfer? Is the FFL incorrect since my wife is on the trust, and is my wife? All for a couple silly metal paper weights. What a joke. TIA y’all

2023.06.09 17:20 amcburd Starting today a couple questions I can't find answers for...

1 - If I take it with the intention of drinking in an hour and it ends up being 3-4 hours until the first drink should I be worried? There is a possibility that I might drink at 2pm today, but it might not be until 5pm.
2 - Sometimes I drink in the morning (i know, its terrible), I think it wears off in 6-9 hours(?)... should I redose after 6 hours?
Thank you :)

I made a Spider-Man audio drama!
Hey everyone!
Like a lot of you, I’ve been really frustrated with the direction of the Spider-Man comics for a really long time. Recently, I got the opportunity to join a large fan collective that makes audio dramas reimagining the Marvel universe. After working with them for a while, they put me in charge of Spider-Man. So here’s the first episode of our brand new series, written and directed by yours truly!
We’re starting from the ground up. We’re meeting Peter in high school, getting introduced to new versions of his friends and foes, in a contemporary setting. It’s very “techno thriller meets The OC”. ;) If you liked Spectacular Spider-Man, or the gone too soon MTV series, this is the show for you!
If you want action, intrigue, character drama, and a Peter who grows, changes, and evolves along with his supporting cast? Let’s just say we’ve got a long-term plan, mapped out, and I think you’re really gonna like it.
We’re premiering in less than an hour! I hope you’ll come check us out! I really tried hard to do Spidey justice. And I couldn’t be more proud of my cast and crew! Hope to see you there!

2023.06.09 17:19 ThunderEagle222 So what happened with my CRT

So what happened with my CRT
So today was a sunny day over here, and I was able to work from home. I got the great idea of retrobrighting my CRT, after I retrobrighted a lot of products before with stunning effect.
Despite the danger of the sunstreak effect I have a really sunny place, and it never happened so I put the CRT in the sun (first whitening the bezel as a whole unit, tomorrow I wanted to whiten the back since that is removable), taped a alluminium sheet over the glass part (since I am aware black in the sun absorbs a lot of heat) and placed it in the sun.
Unfortunately when I came back 4 hours later the alluminium sheet was gone and the CRT now looks like on the photo. The screen was around 50°c, so big yikes. After cooling the CRT down it does appear to work fine. Except well.... you know. This....
I suspect either the anti glare firm got unstuck due to the heat of the glass. Or maybe the retrobright burned it away. Tough I have seen some discarded CRT's like this, so I expect the heat caused it.
So now the million dollar question is, can this be fixed? Or did I just ruined a perfectly working CRT?
Thanks in advance.

2023.06.09 17:18 eadgster [VIOFO A119] 1 hour of recording after parking, park mode is off

Does anyone have any recommendations on how to mitigate the issue I'm seeing, where the camera continues to record for an hour after I've parked the car? It's facing a windowless wall in my garage / a parking garage, so motion/sound is not the cause. The resulting video takes up around 5% of my card storage, so after a week of commuting, over half of my storage is the wall of a garage.
I've got it wired through my Jeeps USB port, so clearly its still getting power. Parking mode is turned off.

2023.06.09 17:18 Fun2Forget Feeling super discouraged after a weigh in at the doctors

I put on happy weight when I entered my relationship two years ago. Went from being a dancer on my feet literally working out 8 hours a day to serving and now to a very sedentary job. I knew I had gained some and began working out off and on about a year ago. My last weigh in was 146 over a month ago and i made some serious diet changes, not making myself hungry but cutting bread almost entirely, avoiding sweets, I already had a pretty good diet so it was more about portion control which I am working on. But then today - after a 12 hour fast for the test - I weighed in at 154. My highest number EVER. Im a big advocate of ignore the scale, focus on how you feel but frankly, i dont feel good either. I tried on pants in two stores this week and hated ALL OF THEM. I am 32 and 5’3 and just feeling so lost and discouraged. My fiancé is fit and sexy and loves me as i am but I am so scared of this downward trend continuing especially if/when we have kids. I just want to love the way I look or at least be ok with it. I end up in leggings or sweatpants because i feel like my body doesnt look good. Found out i could have hypothyroid after an ultrasound and the bloodwork today will clarify which i guess would be a relief to know its not me its my hormones, but what if its not that? Just needed to vent idk will read and appreciate any kind words or advice you wonderful people always offer.

2023.06.09 17:18 Mozias 5 day workweek is inhumane. And should be Illegal.

I'm a pretty young guy 27 year old and I just don't have any free time. I live with my gf working full time job after fairly recently moving to finland. My current job is allright. Working in a laundary company 8 hours a day 5 days a week. But that grind is killing me. I have 0 free time for anything. It's summer now and I want to go places and explore this country. But on 2 days that I have off during the week I'm just dead tired. Im also trying to learn coding on the side now and Im way too tired to understand any of it.
Thing is the tiredness is not only related to this job. My previous job in Ireland was working in animation studio. It's what I studied in uni. But I just got bored and uninterested in it. But even when I was working that job I would get mentally exausted and just had no energy for the time I was free. With an anditional bonus of going out of shape.
But before even that I was working in KFC. A job I absolutely despised. But my manager allowed me to only work 4 days a week which was fantastic. I wasn't tired all the time, I would have time and energy to hang out with my friends, had less money but it was enough. It didn't feel like I was slowly wasting away all the time. Where as now I feel like Im just stuck in a dead end.
I'm a person who isint afraid of work I don't mind doing phisical or mental labour and I catch on to things in a work place fairly easily but working 5 days is just too mutch. I would look for 4 day job here as well but cost of living in finland somehow feels more expensive now even though I'm living with my GF and it feels like costs should be lower then when I was alone. But then again I was in a different country.
I also know people who work 7 days a week and I just don't see how they do that. Fine if you enjoy it go for it but i don't want to waste majority of my life stuck in a place I dint care about and not even having any free time to even try figuring out what I really want to do.
I guess rants over guys.if you stuck with me till the end thanks for reading.

2023.06.09 17:17 Harley2280 Finished CSIII: So here's the cliche topic with my thoughts.

I'll start these thoughts in media res. The ending caught me off guard. Not because of the plot twist, but because it actually ended.
Except for FC the majority of the games have had a moment that I thought was the climax leading into the ending, but the game just kept going. So after killing the Holy Beast I'm ready to fight the Vermillion knight, but boom credits.
The start of the game felt kinda overwhelming with the addition of orders, the break system, playing as brand new characters, and Sub Quartz.
The new class VII took sometime to grow on me. I'm not even sure at what point I started liking them, but by the end I was glad it was just them facing down the final battle. The smaller main cast was nice, and it made seeing the older class feel special.
I was a little sad to see blade was gone, but Vantage Masters is way better.
Super Spoilers past this point:
I'm glad I didn't play trails before I graduated college because this game has given me a deep seeded distrust of professors. The revaluation that Lughman was a villain is probably the least surprised I have ever been by a plot twist. The sudden focus on Reinford's father's death told me exactly who he was. That said I did not call him being the leader of the gnomes, but also wasn't surprised.
I was glad they didn't really try to make Azure Siegfried's identity a mystery.
The voice acting felt a bit disappointing compared to CS 1&2, The best performance in my opinion was surprisingly Instructor Thomas.
This game took me much longer than the others. Completion time was 108 hours. Before this SC was my highest with 78 hours. I'll be starting CS IV tonight and I've heard it's even longer so I doubt I'll finish in time for Reverie 's release.
That said I haven't been so interested in a series in a long time. Normally I beat maybe a single game per year, but since October I've beaten FC - CSIII. I don't think I have ever beaten 8 games in under 12 months before.

Fuck you, Vincent! This is a callout post!

Fuck you, Vincent! I'm calling you out!

Listen up monsterhunterrage, lemme tell you something about Vincent P. Nis. This motherfucker comes to me pleading for my moral support, as you see I am extremely funny, handsome, and I bring victory and good luck.
I've been in this son of a bitch's Discord calls while he records himself getting grinded up the ass more times than Fiorayne has pubic hairs, and I have carried this man with my voice alone. I sing to him as a bard, my skills as a Hunting Horn user emanating off my presence enough to give him buffs in-game without me even being there.
And yet, despite this hard carry that has saved him countless times, he refuses to have sex with me! My bussy has yet to be filled with his American Venom. People of the monsterhunterrage subreddit; this is an injustice!
My services have gone unpaid for! I have been robbed, scammed, swindled! No big black cock to grace my intestines, and on Pride Month no less!
I just helped this man defeat Primordial Malzeno not an hour before writing this, after seven horribly disastrous attempts, and yet I am not being left as a quaking gay mass leaking splooge tainted with burger grease and chip fat!
So fuck you Vincent, and your weird throbbing beetle dick! Don't expect me to help you in Monster Hunter 6 when they release Magma Shlong Rathalos until I am payed with dick! And this man hasn't even fought Hazardous Amatsu yet, do you think he will fuck me after he requests my services? Nay, I will be denied a pounding equivalent to category twenty earthquake once more.
Screw you, Vincent. Because you certainly refuse to screw me.

2023.06.09 17:17 YakImaginary170 Advice after Job Rejections?

Hello!
I recently rejected a job offer because, even after some negotiations, they were offering me a salary that was too low for the location I was required to move to. Today I got rejected from a job I really wanted and had a successful interview with (must have failed the technical test, didn't get any specific feedback after asking).
Now I am in a terrible state of mind, belittling myself and regretting rejecting the low-pay job. Any advice on how to deal with this and, generally, job rejection?

2023.06.09 17:17 AnarZaram 29 Tips and Tricks for Adventure Mode

With the news that development of Adventure Mode for the Steam release is progressing along, I figure some people may want to download the original version to give it a try ahead of the graphics update. As someone with hundreds of hours in adventure mode (there are literally dozens of us!) I thought I would share some of the biggest tips and tricks I've learned. I'll probably be making this into a video once the official release is out and I can get footage with graphics, but until then I'm posting the script I have now here. The rest of this post contains spoilers for every phase of adventure mode, so turn back now if you want to discover all of this for yourself!
Beginner
  1. Always have food
-Large stacks of vegetables can be found in containers in human towns. Meat can be gathered from butchered animals. Meat from sentient creatures can’t be eaten.
2. Always have wateale 
-Adventurers need to drink 3-4 times a day. Water skin only holds 3 water, so it is useless. Bags hold 40 and Backpacks hold 100 which is too heavy for most adventurers. Quivers hold 20, which is the perfect amount. Fill quivers with water at rivers or wells.
3. Equip armor 
-Armor and weapons can be found in the barracks of each town. Try to get iron or steel if possible. Make sure to cover the head, neck, torso, legs, hands, and feet.
4. Get a mount 
-Mounts increase overworld speed which increases the amount of ground that can be covered in one day. This reduces how frequently you need to stop for supplies.
5. Get some pets 
-Companions can be tricky to recruit in the beginning, but pets are a great way to increase survivability. Unlike companions, you can also recruit a very high number of pets immediately. Everything labeled “stray” found within a town can become a pet, from ducks to dogs, and rarely even bears and elephants. Just don’t get too attached, most pets die very fast, or permanently run away after combat. Especially the small ones.
6. Make sure your character can read and swim 
-Most skills can be acquired organically by actions which your adventurer does, but certain skills like reading are never unlocked. Because you need to read slabs or books to learn magic, putting a point in reading at character creation is mandatory. A few points in swimming are also recommended. Even a single tile full of water is enough to drown an adventurer with no swimming skill.
7. Make a young world for less necromancers and more Megabeasts, and an old world for vice-versa 
-World parameters matter. Evil is slightly stronger on average, which means the older a world is, the more likely it is to be infested with Necromancer towers and Goblin Pits. Savagery is just the number of animal people to play as, and beasts is the number of beasts to fight. You want both of these as high as possible, the difficulty is actually easier with more beasts, as you won’t have to travel as far for missions.
8. Don’t be afraid to run if you can’t win 
-Although this is technically a turn based RPG, running away isn’t a button you press, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t an option. If you are heavily outnumbered or facing a very strong enemy, don’t be afraid to sprint away and reengage when it is more advantageous to do so. This is better than dying and losing your progress.
9. Don’t swim until you’ve really trained 
-While it may be tempting to take a quick dip in the river, death can be moments away in any body of water. Even at competent and above levels of swimming, your character can only go about 10-20 squares before getting tired, and swimming while tired has a chance to keep your character in the same tile, further increasing their fatigue. This can mean your character drowning even just one square from the shore if you are extremely unlucky.
10. Aim for the neck/head for instant kills 
-Aiming in combat can be extremely beneficial. Lots of minor enemies such as kobolds and bandits can be killed with one solid hit to the neck or head. Using this tactic can make encounters against large groups of enemies much easier.
Intermediate
11. Fast travel to long rest 
-If you are damaged in battle and bleeding out, even if you are faint with mortal wounds, fast traveling via the world map will instantly heal your wounds. This may be considered a bug, but since adventurers cannot currently be healed at hospitals via adventure mode, this is the only way to actually heal. Furthermore, since you can’t fast travel during combat, and because fast traveling doesn’t remove major injuries such as missing limbs, I’d say it’s a pretty balanced feature.
12. Jog whenever possible 
-Whenever not mounted and not in combat, you should set your speed to jog. This will increase your endurance stat naturally over time, increasing your combat prowess while you move around. Just be sure to reset your speed whenever your character drops to the ground from exhaustion to give them a chance to rest. Keep extra water on hand while doing this, as your character will need to drink more. And make sure not to jog into combat, this will increase your character’s chance of becoming exhausted during combat, which severely lowers stats.
13. Create a character that just wants to perform 
-A focused character will always be more proficient in combat, receiving a boost to stats such as accuracy and damage. Fully customizing needs in character creation can make a character that is very easy to keep focused. You can completely remove needs in character creation if you wish, but this will also remove the chance to receive the focused buff. If anything, just be sure to avoid needs that are currently impossible in adventure mode such as “Make romance.”
14. Create a world with legendary metals for better loot 
-The more metals you choose at world generation, the better the loot will be everywhere. This setting can make gearing up in the early game either extremely trivial, or extremely challenging. World age can also affect possible loot, as extremely young worlds will not have created enough armor to make most encounters have meaningful loot.
15. Tell stories of your notable kills 
-Information in dwarf fortress is passed via a rumor system. No matter how many dragons you may slay, when you enter a new town, no one will care because they don’t know who you are. Every time you reach a new town, you should tell the largest group of people you can the stories of every notable encounter you’ve had. Early on you should tell stories of killing bandits, while later on you should focus on just semi-Megabeasts and Megabeasts.
16. Recruit other party members 
-While animal companions are good choices for meat shields early game, you should recruit as many fighters at barracks to adventure with you as possible. The amount of companions you can have at any one time is limited by your current reputation level, which is why it is important to tell everyone you can of your notable kills. Animal companions take up companion slots even though they go over the max cap, so try to transition from lots of animals early on to a small party of adventuring companions in the midgame, and a large number of companions in the endgame. Just be sure to let your companions win some easy battles on their own to level up their skills, otherwise they will die just as easily as animals in fights against Megabeasts. Don’t be surprised if some of your companions get terrified in combat and run away just like animals. If you can, be sure to find them, as they will take up a companion slot if you don’t part ways with them or watch them die. If they die and you don’t see it, they may permanently take up a slot this way. This is a bug and will hopefully be fixed eventually, but be wary of it for now.
17. Become a hearthperson 
-Starting a new character and trying to find quests can be very challenging. Lots of random characters will have various rumors, but won’t know enough details to send you on a proper quest. Lords and ladies however can make you into a hearthperson, and can then give you proper quests. They will only do this if you have enough reputation level though, which is why telling stories is important. Usually it takes a story of a bandit leader kill or higher to get a lord or lady to recruit you. You can bypass this stage and get to quests right away by choosing to start as a hearthperson. Just beware that quests are randomized, and sometimes your first quest will be to kill a megabeast. When this happens, I recommend traveling to another town and becoming hearthperson there.
18. Train your skills early 
-Training skills via active combat can be very deadly. If possible, try to fight large, easy enemies to train all related combat skills as early as possible. If you find a horse for example, you can attack its legs to immobilize it, then spam nonlethal strikes to train your weapon skill. A couple horses with no legs is a brutal but safe way to train up weapons all the way to legendary.
19. Set combat preferences to facilitate training 
-Skills like observation and stats like endurance are very important for late game combat. These skills in particular can be trained incredibly fast with combat preferences. If you set melee combat preferences to close quarters, this will prefer to grapple the enemy over and over again. This means you can move into the enemy repeatedly to quickly train without navigating menus. Doing this without changing preferences can mean your character automatically makes a headshot and kills the enemy before you get the chance to properly level up stats. Just be sure to move away from your legless horses if you get tired, as the lowered stats means that even low risk combat can result in injury.
20. Sneak up to enemies for stealth kills 
-If you want to dispatch of large camps quickly and efficiently, chaining stealth kills can be an easy way to do this. Just press S to toggle sneaking, then try to approach enemies without walking into their cone of vision. Doing this at night can be especially effective, as enemies have greatly reduced perception.
Advanced
21. Get a slashing, piercing, and blunt weapon 
-Some enemies in dwarf fortress are much easier to kill than others. Kobolds and crundles will crumple against most weapons, while things like bronze collosi are much harder to deal with. A good rule of thumb is to keep a slashing, piercing, and blunt weapon on hands at all times. Use slashing against basic targets and undead for quick decapitations, piercing against large organic creatures like giant cheetahs or rocs so that they give into pain (essentially stunlocking them), and blunt against inorganic enemies to crush them (collosi, armored titans, iron men, etc). When in doubt, keep a whip on hand to one shot most enemies. A legendary lasher with a named masterwork whip can easily one shot most things in the game with a heavy attack to the head. This should be considered a bug that will probably be fixed later, but is very fun if you want to RP as a legendary vampire killer. Regardless of weapon choice, weapon skill is equally important. A novice hammer dwarf with a steel war hammer is just as useless against a bronze colossus as a legendary axedwarf with an artifact copper battle axe.
22. Remove your backpack when starting combat 
-Fighting while overencumbered is a death sentence. While fighting above default speed does not reduce the number of frames it takes to swing your weapon, fighting below default speed will add a delay after each swing before you can act again, giving enemies free strikes against you. This is also why fighting prone is ill-advised. However, this mechanic should not dissuade you from overencumbering yourself. Most mounts negate a large (if not all) amount of encumberance. In addition, your character can move anything they can grab, even if it is the entire corpse of a megabeast which weighs multiple tons, it will just take them more frames to haul these items. So long as you store all of your loot in the same backpack, you are always safe from ambushes no matter your encumbrance, as you can remove and drop your backpack as soon as combat starts, which usually takes less frames than it takes for any enemy to move. After combat, your backpack should be where you left it, and you can easily retrieve your haul.
23. Aim for the legs first, then the hands, then the neck 
Aiming for the neck can make weaker enemies trivial, but more proficient enemies will not allow this tactic, and very large enemies will have necks too large to decapitate. An advanced tactic that works against most strong enemies is to aim for the legs first to knock your enemy prone (or wings against flying enemies). Once your enemy is on the ground, their speed is halved, essentially giving you twice as many turns to attack. It is at this point you should aim for their arms, as these hold weapons for humanoids and usually have claws for beasts. Once the legs are taken out and the usage of weapons is disabled, you are much more likely to land a headshot, and in a much safer position to repeatedly spam this attack.
24. Bleed out megabeasts, cut off hydra heads, pummel collosi 
Certain enemies such as Megabeasts are much harder to kill. These should be considered boss fights, and thus have certain kill parameters. Bronze collosi in particular usually need to have every single body part destroyed in order to be killed. Hydras in turn need to have the brain of each head destroyed to die, and will almost always live if one head is alive. Hill titans can vary from nigh unkillable (humanoids made of steel) to killable via literally any damaging attack (blobs made of water), so reading their description is extremely important in dealing with them.
25. Never get hit (level dodge and block) 
-Because major injuries are unhealable, these accumulate over time. This means that the best way to play adventure mode is to never get hit. This may seem like a tall task, but almost all damage is avoidable via dodge and block. If you have a high observation stat, you will be able to dodge or block attacks. While this may automatically succeed against weaker enemies, it has a chance to fail against stronger enemies if not properly leveled, so be sure to train these skills early on. Fighting when focused and not exhausted should ensure that these avoidance abilities work properly. Just don’t try to block an attack you wouldn’t block in real life.
26. Don’t let enemies get a surround 
-Fighting against multiple enemies can be a likely death scenario. If enemies completely surround you, then your character has a greatly reduced chance of automatically dodging or blocking attacks. In addition, moving through an occupied tile in dwarf fortress will roll a die, and the losers will be forced prone, as only one creature can stand in a tile at once. Make sure to set speed to scramble in combat if this happens, get to an unoccupied square, and stand up as quickly as possible. Dodging into an open space in this scenario is a much better option than moving manually if at all possible. This entire scenario can be avoided if you slowly dodge in the same direction as enemies approach you in combat, ensuring that you only fight one at a time, and force the others to tire themselves as they run after you. Striking the legs of as many targets as possible is effective here, as it drastically increases the time it takes for each enemy to reach you.
27. Throw stones to level archery 
-Archery can be very cumbersome to use, as most bolts are too heavy to use without causing constant encumbrance, and training it is very slow and painful, as arrows usually split into stacks of one when fired. However, there is a way to level archery extremely quickly. By throwing something at the same tile you are on, you level your archery skill. You can then pick up the thrown object and throw it again. This is much faster than using arrows. One of the best objects to do this with is coins. As it turns out, coins are actually the best ranged weapon. Coins can be used in combat to great affect. Because dwarf fortress uses the archery stat when throwing items, it calculates the damage of thrown items as if shot from a bow with the same archery proficiency. While this does not do nearly as much damage as bolts themselves, it effectively gives adventurers a way to reliably use ranged weapons without worrying about retrieving ammo, as money can usually be found in multiple stacks of 100 at bandit camps.
28. Use archery against webs/fire 
-While archery is a niche weapon type for most scenarios, it is mandatory against certain titans and most dragons, as well as giant cave spiders. Titans, like spiders can possess the ability to web your adventurer. This stunlocks your character, making any shot a guaranteed hit. Against large enough titans, getting hit with a single shot of web is enough for instant death, as they will squish your head while webbed. Other titans may possess deadly dust or poisonous gas. While some of these effects are benign, breathing others can and will kill your character, and to my knowledge not even fast travel stops this. Fighting fire breathing dragons is an instant kill scenario as well, as they can melt your armor into molten liquid metal, stunlocking your character until they die from the heat. You can attempt to repeatedly jump until you reach a river, but you are certainly dead at this point. The use of archery (or rather, throwing coins) is mandatory at this point. While a few shots may not do anything at first, repeated shots will accumulate damage, and eventually kill or disable the enemy. Just be very careful getting into melee range to finish enemies off after this occurs, as one unlucky web or fire shot can and will still kill you. Avoid looting titans with dust or gas effects until after you leave and return to the area with fast travel to be sure that the gas dissipates.
29. Know the game progression (Kobolds, Bandits, Hearthperson, Semi-Megabeasts, Towers, Megabeasts, Dark Fortresses, Caverns) 
Knowing what you’re doing at any given point can be the difference between life and death. If you’re playing adventure mode without savescumming (which is the only way to play it in the old versions), then you will be making new characters a lot. Knowing the basic progression of where you should go on new characters will make the ultimate goal of raiding the vault and fighting the angel that much easier. Your basic path should be gearing up in towns, training basic combat skills against animals, fighting kobold and bandit camps to level reputation, telling stories to become a hearthperson, doing quests as a hearthperson to further reputation level and combat skills, fighting semimega and Megabeasts to become a legendary hero, raiding towers to find the secrets, raiding dark fortresses to find the vault and slay the angel, and finally using the secrets to delve into the caverns without having to eat or sleep and fighting forgotten beasts there until your character dies. The surface and visiting towns should be considered the early game, raiding sites should be considered the midgame, killing the angel in the vault should be considered the endgame, and roaming the caverns should be considered the postgame. Of course, adventure mode has lots more to offer than just combat, and if you want to learn its ins and outs for yourself, the only way to do that is to jump in and play it.

2023.06.09 17:16 Much_Economics_921 Does this sound like gastroparesis?

Hi all,
About 6 weeks ago I suddenly developed Gi symptoms. I started vomiting after eating/drinking and couldn’t hold down any liquids and most foods. I had a feeling of fullness and extreme gas pains. I’ve had some reflux in the past but that is only triggered by specific foods. My reflux would go away with Pepcid. No OTC meds helped, I tried them all and gas meds. The vomiting kept getting worse. I don’t have nausea and not a lot of pain. Also, I don’t throw up all at once. I throw up over and over again in small amounts. Sometimes it’s right after eating or drinking sometimes 1-3 hours later. It’s usually undigested food. And I am like throwing up/gagging not just regurgitating.
I’ve been to multiple doctors and have had the following tests done and tried meds. Nothing has been found and the meds have not made a difference.
Tests I’ve had done: •Full Lab panels including liver functions •Internal and abdominal ultrasound •Upper endoscopy with biopsies
Meds I’ve tried: •Zofran •Omeprazole 40mg
I am so frustrated and defeated as I got my biopsy results this week and since they found nothing they said I was fine and had to wait 3 months until my follow up. The Gi doctor didn’t take me very seriously in the first place so I doubt much will come of it. I am going to push for the emptying study to get a definite result. The doctor was insisting that if it is gastroparesis there would be food in my stomach during the endoscopy but after lots of research this seems it isn’t always the case.
I have tried a lot of foods, the only consistent thing I can hold down is plain bagels and glazed donuts (Weird). There is no reason behind what I can or can’t keep down. Liquids are definitely worse. I have just learned I can’t eat too much, even if I’m starving because I’ll regret it later, like last night I ate too much and threw up for 3-4 hours.
The only other option the doctor brought up is my meds, Effexor and Vyvanse. Both of them come with nausea/vomiting as side effects. But I’ve talked to 3 psychiatrists and they all think this is highly unlikely. I was only 150mg Effexor and had absolutely no side effects. This is the first psych med I have ever tried that gave me no side effects. Same with the Vyvanse, I’m on 40mg and no side effects. So my psychiatrists think it’s highly unlikely I would develop severe symptoms so quickly. (Overnight). I was on 150 Effexor and 30mg without any issues and then I went to 40 on the Vyvanse and the symptoms started sorta around the same time. At first I thought it might be the meds but I’ve stopped taking the Vyvanse for days and no effect. Even though we don’t think it’s the cause, I’m going off the Effexor just so the GI can rule that out.
Just wondering if anyone can relate to any of this.

2023.06.09 17:15 viait The affects of nicotine and dopamine as they travel through the brain.

So I've noticed that after a sufficient time, between 2 and 4 hours depending on the amount of nicotine in my system and my level of activity, that I can achieve a nicotine rush. I know the affects are caused by nicotine and dopamine rushing through my brain, but what I'd like to know is why it starts with alertness in the back of my brain changes to excitement as it enters the sides of my brain and after just touching my frontal lobe creates a calming effect. Does anyone have some research done on this? I could not find any scholarly articles.

2023.06.09 17:15 Icy-Foot-8313 Leaving NY and moving to NH

Hello everyone,
I am interested in leaving the Mid-Hudson Valley area of NY and moving to NH. A little background: I am in my early 20s (so I do go out to the bar and have a drink often), I am pro-gun (one of the reasons for moving there), and generally I want to be around less people. Furthermore, I am big into the outdoors, hiking and having property (I like quads, dirt bikes, motorcycles, boats, pretty much anything with a motor). I do not have any kids, although my immediate family is in NY. One of the main reasons for my reluctance is the fact that I have a well paying job on the railroad here, with great benefits (including a pension). During my job search, I have found it hard to find equivalent salaries to NY, while NH also seems expensive, housing wise. Although I work for the railroad and don’t use my bachelors degree, I do have one. Any tips, information, or general things I should know to help me with finding work, adaption to the NH life? I have spent about 48 hours there in total, so I guess a good starting point would be to spend more time there. I visited Lincoln, NH and the White Mountains area.

2023.06.09 17:15 OxyC377 [Race Day 5 - 9th June] Carole Nash Super Twins Race 2

Just under 1 hour fifteen minutes after Peter Hickman’s simply sensational, record-breaking feats, attentions fell upon the second three-lap Carole Nash Super Twins race.
Could Michael Dunlop create another piece of TT history, becoming alongside his uncle Joey Dunlop, the joint most winning TT racer of all time? Many were forecasting this but the Ballymoney racer knew the competition would be stern, fierce.
Lap 1:
Part one of Dunlop’s 26 TT wins mission was accomplished at Glen Helen, opening up a one second lead over BE/RK Racing’s Michael Browne. At Ballaugh Bridge’s, Dunlop’s lead stretched to 3.353 seconds.
Early confirmed retirements were KTS Racing Powered by Steadplan’s Jamie Coward and PreZ Racing’s Paul Jordan. Onto Ramsey Hairpin and Dunlop astride the SC Project Paton, added almost two seconds to the race-lead, moving 5.276 clear.
Then drama struck with Dunlop appearing to slow down. The race leader was out. Dunlop’s demise enabled Southern Ireland’s speediest TT exponent Browne, to slot into first. At lap one’s end, Browne was 11.645 ahead of outright lap record holder Hickman with third, fourth respectively, Josh Brookes and Pierre Yves Bian.
There was another notable retirement at the pits, in the form of Bathams Racing’s Michael Rutter.
