2023.06.02 01:28 Neggy5 Modern Controls are absolutely the best thing to happen to fighting games this century

TL;DR: modern controls in SF6 is similar to MOBA/Hero shooter ability spam, as every fighter has equal inputs for the kind of command they will do. this could really bless the fighting game community break into mainstream
Bought SF6 today cause how much the demo impressed me with the modern controls. As we all know, having to learn combos, consistently input correctly and practice in training mode for hours to even stand a remote-chance to win against anyone is something that tarnishes fighting games' popularity and forced it as a "niche" genre. its incredibly unfriendly to newcomers... until now.
there's a big reason why the mainstream competitive-esport scene is dominated by FPS and team-based MOBAs.
A. you don't have to learn a codex of complicated inputs to land a shot.
B. you can drop in and learn as you play, not practicing against a dummy for days on end. mostly due to the low skill floor.
The second point is very much an advantage for SF6 and modern controls, and the very reason it could break into the mainstream alongside LoL, Apex and Valorant. Think about modern controls this way,
In games like Overwatch, its very similar to SF6's modern controls. You have designated buttons for basic damage (direction+l/n/h inputs, left/right click) and a few for abilities (direction+s, ability Lshift/E), and "ultimates" (direction+s+h, Q), every character has almost the exact same inputs, you learn one? you basically know the basics of all of them. Just like MOBAs and hero shooters. You just have to know the setup of what each "ability" DOES.
In this case, you learn the basic controls? you are ready to play. Not at mercy to learning complicated combos and inputs consistently landing them, which takes hours and hours of practicing against bots and dummies. FPS games put you in with humans instantly, this is great for fighting games to be able to learn while playing.
Now obviously you aren't immediately a "pro", theres lots of terminology, gamesense, and timing to learn that can get you to pro level. Which is the same with all FPS games.
Overall, I thought I'd discuss my thoughts on why modern controls are a blessing ofr both the FGC and breaking the genre back to mainstream. Does anyone agree? what are your thoughts on Modern controls?

2023.06.02 01:27 TheRedBird098 Can I be mod? (I have wires in my arms)

Found this sub a while back, it talks to me, while I’m dreaming. It’s great. The federal government in my walls has been asking me to ask you guys to make me mod.
I think it will be great. For “””work experience””” I have modded for L4L, GenUSA, before the Reddit admins thought the account was too based for this world. (wait it wasn’t me.. my brothers account) Currently it’s the dying subreddit called noworking, I need to put a bullet in its head. But I just can’t. Not before having my chocolate milk.
Another thing I have found these red and blue copper wires in my arms, should I take them out???? I think I have super powers. So I should be mod.
Also my friend (he’s real I think) is a federal agent that showed me this subreddit while at a 24 hour gaming event. So being mod will let me ban him if he is a fed.
I hope you take my job application with grace,
Best wishes -Friendly neighbourhood superhero (with wires)

2023.06.02 01:24 urilbedamned Draft feedback, please read my takes

So I just finished a really tough draft that felt like there just was no good solution. I'll point out picks I'm not totally sure about here but the gist of the draft was pack 1 goes great, we have a foundation for a good blue based convoke deck. But then at the start of pack 2 the packs are just atrocious for us, no cards I feel remotely good aobut taking p2p1 or p2p2 and things start going awry from there. We end up getting waffled between UR and UW after some questionable picks and things just never improve.
p1p1 I take spite because it's at least as good as the other options and it's the only red card in the pack so taking it sends a signal that red isn't open to the left.
p2p3 I take squee even tohugh it's not fantastic cause I'm not losing anything noteworthy and I did want to try the card as I've never played with it
p2p8 I end up taking the knight in case we want to pivot to white for whatever reason given there's nothing super ntoeworthy for us in the pack. This will be important later.
After this point pack 1 just kinda dries up for us.
p2p1 I'm very unhappy with, I take aerial boost as it's the best card I can foresee potentially playing. I do think a bit about reyav but don't see a way we'd end up in wr from this point.
p2p2 is a similar story, I end up taking the invasion because it's the only card that seems like a reasonable pick.
p2p5 at this point I know I'm getting waffled, I think about this one a lot but end up taking wingspan over raff because I have no clue whether I'm gonna be in UR or UW and I'm getting a bit concerned about having enough playables ultimately.
The rest of the pack is just a disaster, blue, red and white all feel like they're getting cut and things end up going south, we do get 2 protocol knights which push us more toward the uw direction.
p3p1 this feels like a major crossroads pick, I end up on kari zev because I think it's the best card here.
The rest of pack 3 is, much like a lot of pack 2, a disaster. The signals make no sense, it feels like cards are getting cut at random.
p3p8 I probably should've taken another protocol knight here but I didn't really want another 4 drop and it felt like I was between a rock and a hard place. The rest of pack 3 is just dried up, we get totally waffled and end up with a mess.
This was one of the hardest drafts I've had in a long time. At the end of pack 1 I felt great but things quickly spiraled out of control in pack 2 and 3. I'm curious what others think of this one but to me it felt like kind of a lose lose situation.

2023.06.02 01:18 Glaurung_Quena The anime miniseries "Uchu no senshi" vs Verhoeven's Starship Troopers vs the Heinlein's novel

There was an anime direct to home video miniseries in 1988 based on Heinlein's "Starship Troopers," called "Uchu no senshi" (Soldiers of the universe). The six episodes were released on laserdisk and tape in Japan, and AFAIK, have never been reissued since. I have seen it only because of rips of the laserdisk with fan-translated subs available from torrent sites.
The anime series is OK but not great. It avoids all the (endless, very grumpy) lectures about politics in the original novel and just sticks to the story of Juan Rico, his romance with Carmencita, and the war against the Bugs. It also only covers the first third to half of the novel (Johnny graduates from boot camp at the start of episode 4 of 6). Naturally, since it's anime, the powered armour of the original novel is featured front and centre.
On watching the series, I noticed some odd parallels between how the Anime departs from the novel and how the Verhoeven Starship Troopers movie departs from the novel. Does it make sense to think that the scriptwriter (Neumeier) consulted the anime series to fill in his very careless and sloppy reading of the actual novel? Verhoeven cut out the powered armour of the novel completely, allegedly for budgetary reasons. Other than that, though:
  1. Novel: Johnny Rico was active in track, swimming, and debate in high school. Anime: Juan Rico plays American football. Movie: Johnny Rico is a football player.
  2. Novel: Rico knows a girl named Carmen but their friendship occupies a couple sentences. She visits him for a date in officer training school, but they aren't in love. Anime: Rico is head over heels for Carmencita, and this is front and centre. Movie: Rico and Carmen's relationship is front and centre.
  3. Novel: Rico's family is rich, unlike his best friend, who is poor. Anime: everyone in his social circle is well to do. Movie: everyone owns all the toys and doesn't need to worry about money, in the usual Hollywood "everyone is upper middle class" way.
  4. Novel: Rico is a Filipino whose native language is Tagalong (revealed on the last page). Anime: Rico is blonde and blue-eyed. His classmates are likewise mostly very white looking. Movie: Despite supposedly being located in Buenos Aires, all these supposed Latino characters look very Anglo, like they came from an upper class LA high school.
In other areas, the movie takes something partially developed in the anime and runs with it to a new, often quite foolish place.
5: Novel: Rico lives somewhere in a former colony of Spain, but not in the Western Hemisphere (if you pay close attention to the subtle clues sprinkled sparsely through the opening chapters). Anime: Rico lives somewhere where American football is popular, there are lots of people with Hispanic names, all the signage is in English, and the sun rises over the ocean. (Florida?, Texas? California in a retrograde version of Earth? Japan but with everyone mysteriously having Spanish names?). Movie: Rico lives in an Americanized, Anglicized, whitewashed version of Buenos Aires, because Neumeier did not actually read the novel with much attention and failed to realize that Rico's mother was travelling away from home when she died in the Bug attack on that city.
  1. Novel: boot camp instructor Staff Sergeant Zim asks the new recruits if any of them can take him in a fight. When he then breaks the wrist of one of the recruits who fights him, he apologizes for it – “I’m sorry, you hurried me a little.” Anime: Zim hurts a recruit’s forearm, possibly on purpose, and says “go to the dispensary, it’s just a simple dislocation, you’ll be better in three hours.” Movie: Zim deliberately and with malice breaks of the arm of an already defeated man (movie Zim = sociopath).
  2. Novel: Zim trains the recruits in knife throwing. A recruit asks why they are doing something so primitive when the enemy has nuclear bombs. Zim replies with two short lectures, one on how there is no such thing as a dangerous weapon, only a dangerous man, and second on how the military’s job is not to obliterate the enemy but to exert as much or as little violence against the enemy as the government desires. Anime: there's a severely condensed version of the first lecture about dangerous men. Movie: Zim doesn’t answer the question at all, he just stabs the recruit in the hand because sociopath.
Finally, there are a few places where the movie follows neither the anime nor the book.
  1. Novel: Zim cares deeply for the welfare of his trainees, and this is explicitly conveyed through a lot of words. Anime: in the three episodes set in boot camp, Zim is harder and more cruel, but we are shown through his expressions that despite the mean exterior, he cares a great deal about the welfare of his trainees. Movie: Zim is a sociopath who goes out of his way to hurt his trainees.
  2. Novel: Zim's cheeks are "shaved blue," so he’s pale skinned. No other description of his appearance is given. Anime: Zim is of African descent, and just about the only character depicted with non pale skin. Movie: Zim is a blond, Aryan looking white guy. (considering Hollywood's racist approach to casting, this is not surprising)
Looking at all of that together, I start wondering: could the script for the movie have been borrowing from the anime? If you've seen the anime yourself, please let me know your thoughts. If you haven't: it's six short episodes, and worth your time if you are a Heinlein completist.

2023.06.02 01:08 MCBYT Any auto-catchers that can transfer? (or general recommendations)

Hey! I've been playing Pokemon Go on and off since launch, but been really getting into it over the last few months. I'll be going out on my first community day soon (3x XP OP), but I'd love to get a good companion device for the occasion. The main thing I'm curious about is whether any of these can transfer Pokemon? It doesn't have to be automatic, just want to transfer the crappy 'mons (Bidoof, Starly, etc) out quickly.
If those don't exist, would anyone be able to give me a general recommendation for a few other features I'm looking for? - Automatic pokestop spinning is a must, this is why I'm getting it - Either no auto-catching or a way to toggle it off - I want to be able to see/decide what I'm catching. - A screen that shows the 'mon would be awesome - bonus point if it's Gameboy-style sprites, since I'm a big fan of the original games - Some way to control which ball is used (either choosing it when manually catching, or automatically picking the ball based on catch difficulty) - also I just got my master ball so please not one that will waste it on a random 1500 CP Yanma - Consistent good/great/excellent throws would be nice
Thank you all so much in advance - I'm still new to a lot of the game (just recently got into battle league, quests and Team Rocket fights, and I have yet to do any trading or raiding) but this will help a lot I think :)

2023.06.02 01:08 Volodio The fourth ruler of the new Argead dynasty

The fourth ruler of the new Argead dynasty
If you guys are uninterested, just downvote and I'll stop posting.
First ruler
Second ruler
Third ruler

Alexandros VII the Huntmaster (968 – 1006)
After the death of Alexandros VI, there were three men to succeed him. The first was Hypatios, the second son who had been on numerous campaigns and had ruled with his father for years. The second was Kaisarios, the third son who had always stayed at court, never participating in any campaign. The third was Alexandros. He was the 19-year-old son of Hephaistion, making him the grandson of Alexandros VI, though fortunately for him he was not an albino like his father.
Hypatios was away when his father died and did not hear the news until several weeks later. Alexandros and Kaisarios, who were both at the court, tried to gather supporters. Kaisarios focused on other members of the Argead dynasty, descendants of the previous Argead leaders through their daughters and their loyal followers, while Alexandros tried to win the favor of the new nobility. He was successful and notably received the support of Theodotos, who gave him the army. Alexandros VII declared himself despot and took control of Athens. Kaisarios fled to Krete where he also declared himself despot. Hypatios, when he discovered what had happened, went to Cyprus where he had some support and claimed to be despot.
After a few weeks, the three Argeads were focused on ruling their lands and increasing their support in the areas they controlled. Their lands also had not fully recovered from the wars of Alexandros VI. They were all too busy to prepare for a war against each other and a status quo was established, temporarily. The next year, the Roman civil war ended with a victory of Leon VIII. The lands controlled by the Argeads had been spared, which had allowed them to gather support to themselves. They particularly made sure the nobility would support the Argeads instead of the Basileus in case of a war between both sides. Alexandros VII was discovered during that period to be a ruler as fair and just as his grandfather had been. Progressively, he became disinterested from Krete and Cyprus, but was too powerful for Hypatios and Kaisarios to bother him. They spent most of their reign focusing on internal matters.
In 972, Alexandros VII married Alfrhildr, a woman from a prestigious northern family. The next year, she gave birth to a daughter, Leontia. In 974, he attacked the Constanta family for some of their lands in Bulgaria. The victory of the Argeads had encouraged many Roman families to try their hand in the kingdom of Bulgaria. After a few years, many held lands here. Theodotos was put in charge of 3 000 men and went in the mountains to fight the war. The Constantas had not much support for they were in the edge of the Empire and thus the conflict quickly ended with an Argead victory.
During those years, Alexandros continued making sure he had the support of the nobility, not only by maintaining good relations with the heads of the families but with the other members as well. Some Christian families even accepted to abandon Christ, something which showed a great support toward the Argeads. He ruled his lands fairly and invested in them, especially in Attica. In 977, Alexandros VII had another daughter named Aigidia. Alfrhildr died a few months later of a disease. He remarried to Hypatia, a Greek noble. The next year, Theodotos died in his bed. The despot used the occasion to pressure the Skleros family to renounce Jesus, which they did as a result of the diplomatic efforts of Alexandros over the years. In 979, Hypatia gave birth to a girl, Helene.
In 980, the despot was invited to a prestigious position at the court of Leon VIII. He went here and tried to find support among the Roman nobility against the Basileus. In 981, Alexandros attacked the Pastillas family. He wanted to counter their influence in Epirus and thus attacked their base in Asia Minor, specifically their lands in Kibyrrhaiotai. He sent Niphon, the widow of Alexandros VII’s sister Agne, who had died a few years prior, with 3 300 soldiers to wage this war. The Pastillas’ first strategy was to stall by hiding in their forts while they called for the intervention of Leon VIII. However, the despot used his influence at court to prevent any imperial meddling in the conflict. In 982, the Pastillas finally chose to face the Argead army. With 1 200 men, they tried one last stand at the Battle of Adrassos but they were defeated. Following the battle, one part of the family made an internal coup and negotiated a surrender with Alexandros, weakening his family but strengthening himself. He agreed to submit to the Argeads and have all of his former subjects also submit, and in exchange he kept Kibyrrahaiotai. To show their commitment, he abandoned Christ. With this victory, the Argeads finally had full control of Epirus once again and also more than tripled the size of the area under their influence in Asia Minor. That same year, Hypatia had another daughter, Kyra.
In 984, Alexandros caught wind of a conspiracy by the Bulgarians who wanted to retake their lands. They were negotiating with the owners of the forts for a pacific transition in order to force the Argeads to abandon the area if they did not want to be engaged in a long and costly war. This plot was led by Petar, a man living in the kingdom of Wallachia, north of the Danube. To prevent it from happening, Alexandros sent Niphon with 3 500 men to invade a part of Wallachia called Oltenia. At the same time, Hypatia gave her husband another daughter, Garyphallia. The campaign lasted some time as Niphon captured each fort. In 986, he defeated the king of Wallachia at the Battle of Rusii de Vede, forcing him to renounce control of the region. Soon, the local nobility swore allegiance to the Argeads in order to keep their lands. Petar had been killed during the war, putting an end to the plot.
In 988, Leon VIII was involved in a war against the Pope in Italy. The campaign turned into a disaster as the Catholics hired many mercenaries and completely destroyed the imperial roman army. This was deemed the perfect occasion by Alexandros VII who, in 989, stopped paying taxes to the Basileus and declared he would stop serving him. Leon VIII reacted by immediately trying to take the Argead forts in Greece. He quickly raised some men to kill the rebellion before it really began. However, Niphon was already here with 3 700 soldiers. He easily defeated the first army. Despite this victory, all of the nobles in the Eastern Roman Empire stayed loyal to the Basileus, including the Argeads from Krete and Cyprus, who had created their own family.
The next year, another army of 4 200 men was raised and sent to Greece, but it was defeated at the Battle of Corinth in May, thanks to the better terrain. More men were recruited, including mercenaries. However, by that point they were divided instead of following a single command. Niphon exploited it by defeating each army separately. In 991, Leon VIII died, as did Alexandros’ daughter Helene. The new Basileus was the 8-year-old Anthimos. Because of his age, he was not in charge of ruling and the Roman nobility squabbled among each other to gain as much power as they could. As a result, the war against Alexandros had a lesser focus. Especially as a lot of the nobles had been captured on the battlefield and forced to pay heavy ransoms to go back to their lands. Moreover, he was an important rival of theirs. After a few months, they agreed to give Alexandros VII his independence in the name of the Basileus, hoping with him out of the Empire he would stop troubling them.
Alexandros VII’s first decision as an independent ruler was to create an order of warriors dedicated to the defense of the Argead’s rule. They were called the Myrmidons, as a reference to Achilles that Alexander the Great loved so much, and led by Gregoras. In 992, Alexandros invaded Bulgaria. It was still ruled by Simeon II, now very old. The king had spent his life fighting many enemies and seeing his kingdom slowly weaken. The Myrmidons were tested during this conflict as they were called to participate in the invasion, bringing the total number of Argead soldiers to 5 300. They encountered little resistance as the Bulgarians were busy in other wars, as they had been consistently for the duration of Simeon II’s reign. After a year and a half of war, Simeon II agreed to surrender Moesia, which represented half of what was left of his kingdom, in exchange for the end of the invasion. The conquered area was given to Niphon as a reward for all of his efforts during Alexandros’ reign.
In 995, Alexandros attacked duchess Ruxandra of Vedin. The next year, as the campaign was ongoing, another part of the Pastillas family attacked Alexandros to take the land of their kin. They were helped by many other Roman families. The despot negotiated with Ruxandra, she would swear allegiance and keep her titles and possessions, then he was free to focus his efforts on the Roman nobles.
The Myrmidons were once again called. In total, the Argeads had 6 500 soldiers. While the army prepared for the campaign, Alexandros accepted he would not have a son and decided it was time to confirm his daughters as heir, and in particular Leontia who was showing a lot of skills necessary for ruling. They were married to members of prestigious Varangian houses as princesses of the highest rank.
The campaign began in 997. It started with the Battle of Cremnia in December, when Niphon defeated the 6 200 men of the Roman nobles. It was followed by a series of sieges until the Battle of Smyrna in August 999, during which the Romans were once again defeated. They negotiated a truce a few months later, giving a heavy ransom in exchange for the return of their forts. Alexandros used that gold to improve his court, showing the world he was really a ruler in his own right, and continued spending it profusely on his domain.
In 1002, Alexandros VII attacked the duchy of Rashka, ruled by a cabal of nobles acting in the name the 6-year-old duchess, Lyudmila. The despot justified his invasion by claiming to wanting to help the child get rid of bad influence. Niphon died of natural causes during the war. After his death, the command of the army was divided, which was especially necessary for the warfare in the mountains of the region. The war ended in 1005, when the nobles accepted to surrender Lyudmila, who was brought to Athens to be personally raised by Alexandros, with Alexandros’ men staying to rule in her absence.
That same year, the despot took Konstantia, an Argead from Krete loosely related to him, as his concubine. Despite his acknowledgement of his daughters as heir, he was still hoping for a son. Alexandros VII died of natural causes in 1006, at 56.
Alexandros VII is the one who really made the independence of the Argeads happen. Despite the trouble they caused to the previous Basileus, the Argeads overall still benefited the Empire greatly thanks to the exorbitant taxes imposed on them. That loss, decided by the noble families more concerned by their own struggle to power rather than anything else, was devastating to the Eastern Roman Empire as a whole which became weaker than ever. It is important to note that despite becoming independent, Alexandros VII is not the one who really remade the Argead Empire. He still called himself despot, and was usually referred to as the Despot, as the only other despots, of Krete and Cyprus, were insignificant in comparison. When historical documents mentioned the realm he ruled, they usually called it Hellas, as he was ruling from Athens which was his center of power. But it was nothing official.

Over Memorial Day weekend, I caught my (27M) girlfriend (28F) cheating on me. I have a lot on my mind so this is going to be a long one... apologies in advance. I want to talk about the night it all went down, the days since, and life going forward.
I have been with my (likely soon to be ex) girlfriend for nearly 8 years. We met in college at a party and never looked back. Our relationship was never the most exciting or passionate, but we loved each other.
I will be the first to admit I was not a perfect partner. I struggled with alcohol and we both smoked a fair bit of marijuana through college and our early 20s. I also struggled greatly with depression and anxiety. Despite these issues, I always held down a job and paid the bills. We also rarely fought.
I have made great strides in my life to put these issues behind me. I am completely sober and have worked very hard to become the best future husband and father I can be for our family.
Over the years we built a life together. We both graduated college, moved to the big city, and began our careers. We have 2 dogs (luckily no kids) and live in a nice house in a nice suburb that we split rent on. Our lives are integrated. She is a part of my family and I am a part of hers. We have lived together for years and have shared expenses.
We are not engaged yet but I have had a ring for several months now. I had not proposed because I felt there were cracks in our relationship that I wanted to work on before taking that next step. I had tried to have conversations about these issues but was never met with any meaningful dialogue or action.
I think the story of my D-day actually start a couple weeks before it actually happened. One day before work, I had asked my GF (I'll call her J) if she could please clean her dishes in the sink and clean up her pile of laundry in the bathroom. No demands or anything, just "please, I'd appreciate it". J blew up at me. "Do you know how long you were a mess and I put up with it??". I was hurt but at this point I needed to leave for work so I said we need to talk later and headed out the door. I gathered my thoughts during the day and came home a little early from work. We sat down and I laid out the following points:
1. Please stop using the past against me. I know I wasn't perfect but I've worked very hard to become a better person. I cannot be in a relationship where my partner will hold my darkest days over my head to win an argument.
2. J works the nightshift and I have struggled with this in the past. We don't see each other very often as our schedules are completely opposite. She was open to changing to the day shift in the past but recently has hardened her stance. Recently, she has been sleeping a LOT on her days off. I understand nightshift is brutal on one's sleep schedule but it was getting to the point where she would only be awake 4-6 hours on her days off. These few hours she was awake she would lay on the couch and watch TV. It made having a relationship difficult, and it also meant her share of house duties was falling behind (leaving her dishes in the sink, her clothes all over the place, etc).
3. Sex. Our sex life has never been great. I have been open about my desire to improve things, have worked on myself to be an attractive partner, and have tried to discuss her wants and needs as well. There was never any progress.
During this conversation, I asked for her thoughts and feelings on each topic. I desperately wanted an actual dialogue but she was giving me nothing. Ultimately, she said she needed time to think about what I said. Since the conversation, I had not seen her hardly seen her at all. She had been gone almost a week on a hiking trip with some co-workers that had been planned for a while. Then because of work there was another week of not really seeing each other.
Friday night, J asks if I want to go to a birthday dinner for a family friend on Saturday. I had plans that required me to be up early on Sunday, so I said probably not as I knew she would want to stay and hang out late with them. She swore she would not as she had work on Sunday. I only half believed her, but agreed to go because I knew it'd make her happy.
Towards the end of dinner I go to the restroom and when I come back, what always happens happened. "Would you be ok if I actually went out? I won't be out much later" She asked in front of the entire group so I said "sure, you can do what you want" A few minutes later off to the side, I let her know I was upset that she went back on her word but she was un-phased. She promised she wouldn't be out very late and I believed her as the group was primarily mid-30s people with young kids. One of the other people at the birthday dinner assured me they would give her a ride home.
I drove home alone and the anger built. I typed out a long text about how I was hurt that she didn't come home with me like she said she would, but ultimately deleted it before sending. I didn't want to needlessly make her night worse and told myself we would talk in the morning. I go to bed.
2AM I wake up to go pee. She isn't there. I check my phone and she hasn't texted me at all either. We share locations with each other so I check and it's not loading so I am getting a bit worried for her safety at this point.
I call her and she picks up "Hello?" "Hey J where are you??" "Oh I decided to sleep over at family friend's house" This alone wasn't concerning as the family friends were a married couple with young children. We have known them for years and it was not unusual for her to spend the night there after going out with them.
At this point my concern quickly turns back to anger because not only did she lie to me again about coming home early, she didn't even text me to let me know her plans changed. I told J to get an Uber and come home, we need to talk. She was annoyed and let me know it but I didn't care. She told me she would order an Uber.
Nearly 30 minutes had passed and I had not heard from her. I check her location again to see if she's on her way. Unlike before, it does load this time. Not only was she not on the way back, she was at a house I didn't recognize. I call her back "Hey I thought you said you were ordering an Uber and coming home? Also where are you? Your location is showing you at some house I've never seen".
She sticks to her story. She is at family friend's. She has no idea why her location is showing the other house, because she is definitely at family friend's. I'm uneasy at this point but still haven't jumped to any conclusions. Maybe it was a glitch. Seemed to be pretty far away from where she was claiming to be for a glitch and it also hadn't moved at all in a while... but whatever, anything is possible I suppose.
I am asking her why she keeps lying to me. Lied about not going out in the first place, lied about how long she'd be gone, and lied about calling an Uber 30 minutes ago. She says the Uber is coming in 4 minutes and that she will call me when it picks her up because she doesn't want to argue with me in front of family friends.
I watch her location, expecting it to jump and correct itself once she starts moving. Instead, it moves exactly as if she was picked up in an Uber from that house. Whatever, she is on her way.
I go downstairs and wait for her to arrive. Once she does I ask what she did tonight. "I went to the bar and then to family friends". I ask her what she was doing at family friends. "Just talking. You know I stay there sometimes what's the big deal?". I ask what on earth they were talking until 2:30 in the morning. It just didn't make sense, they're a mid-30s married couple with young kids and full time jobs. Staying awake this late just to talk?
"Well we were talking about you for one" "Me? What about me" "For starters your psychotic behavior tonight."
I was mad sure but my behavior had been far from "psychotic". I never raised my voice and never accused her of anything. I demanded she come home sure but I felt I was justified in that.
From here she continues to say they talked about the discussion from 2 weeks ago. How I "attacked her" and "piled on her for no reason". I was shocked. I thought I had handled that conversation a couple weeks ago very maturely. I was actually proud of myself for taking time to gather my thoughts so that I could calmly lay them out when I got home. At this point however, I was questioning myself.
Did I dog pile her for no reason? Was the way I approached it an "attack"? My only thought was maybe it felt one sided because she refused to engage in any discussion. I asked why she could talk to other people about our relationship but not me.
It would never become clear however as she said she was done talking and was going to bed. I begged her to give me something, anything. I didn't care if her response was in the form of yelling at me. I just needed SOMETHING.
As she's walking up the stairs I ask her to explain why her location was at that house. The story was the same. She didn't know, she was at family friends house. I told her I want to believe her but I know what I saw with my own eyes. It just didn't make sense. I would have believed anything that plausibly put her at that house. "I was at family friends and that's that. If you don't believe me, the we have MUCH bigger problems"
That was that. I did trust her and so I accepted it and went up to join her in bed. There was a little voice in the back of my mind that knew what I saw but she wouldn't lie, she definitely wouldn't cheat.
As I am about to fall asleep, I sit up suddenly and say "J I have an idea" *half asleep* "what?" "Show me your Uber receipts. That will prove you're telling the truth, any small doubts I have will be gone and we can just move on from this. Now she seems to be completely asleep (almost certainly faking it looking back). I grab her phone from under her pillow and unlock it.
On the screen is a text thread to a guy I'll call Jake. There were only 2 messages. First from earlier in the evening "It's J". The kind of message you send when someone puts their number in your phone and you text them so they have your number now. Then one she forgot to send "Hey sorry about that... I made it home ok".
Even at this point, my naïve ass did not jump to cheating. I truly assumed it was probably someone who was also at the dinner and stayed the night at family friends. But then I saw the Uber receipt. It had picked her up from the house her location showed her at.
"It's what it looks like"
I asked how could she do this to me? Why would she do this to me? Nothing. Not a single sentence that could be considered a thoughtful response. Despite my demands to know what happened that night, she, as usual, gave me nothing. "It's over. You threw away an 8 year relationship. We were supposed to be together forever. You were supposed to be the mother of my children." Only after those words "It's over" did she show any remorse.
The very little information I did get out of her was:
-This was the first time
-I caught her before anything actually happened
I'm not sure I believe either. It also doesn't really matter to me. Interestingly, about a month prior she told me she had HPV. She assured me that monogamous people can get it. Based on the research I did, it seemed possible, so I didn't think much of it. Now I wonder...
The next few hours were an unproductive loop of various iterations of "How could you" and "I'm sorry I'll do anything to make it up".
Eventually it was 6am and I still had those plans that brought me home early the night before. A 7am tee time. So I left.
It was actually a blessing but I had already had pretty much a full day of plans with some friends. First was golf, then some time at the shooting range with another friend who was going to show me the ropes. These are close friends and I told them everything. They listened to me ramble all day and spent as much time as I needed.
Once I knew J had left for work, I decided it was time to go back home. I had been up since 2am and I was exhausted. I don't fall asleep until midnight. Awake for about 22 hours on the worst day of my life.
The Aftermath:
Honestly... not much happened after. I hurt. It is a deep, constant ache. It was not overwhelming pain like hearing a family member had died. No... just a constant, deep, ache.
I reached out to some more friends who have all been incredibly supportive. I am truly blessed to have the support system I do.
The people I really want to talk to, but haven't had the courage to call yet are my parents. I can't explain why, but I feel almost embarrassed. I also know that once I tell them, the relationship is 100% over with J. They will never see her the same, and she'll know it. I can't live with that tension my whole life.
While I am 99.9% sure this relationship is over, it's hard to say 100%. She was in my life for 8 years. It means a fundamental change to my life presently, and the entire future I had planned.
Work has been hard. I haven't gotten a lot done this week. I've been distracting myself by talking to my co-workers. Today though... I was the only one in the office. Seems everyone else happened to be working from home.
It was not a good day. I have been in my head replaying the events of the weekend and spiraling. Until this point I was weirdly ok. I think it's the first time I've been alone since it happened so all the feelings are coming out.
Going Forward:
I'm not sure what the future holds. I have a few short term plans:
1. STD test
2. Therapy
3. Talk to my parents and likely make a trip home
I also need to talk to J. While I repeatedly said it was over the night it all went down, I think it still needs to be made official. I have not seen J since that night. After work Sunday and Monday night, she has been home. I don't think she's left the house. However, I've been spending as much time away as possible and the little bit I am home, she is in the guest bedroom. I have not had the strength or desire to talk to her.
What I'm most scared of it my living situation and the dogs. While one dog is clearly mine and one is clearly hers, there's a part of me that worries she may do something crazy. I don't know what she's capable of anymore.
We are locked into this lease until February. I have re-read the lease and it seems were pretty much stuck. She has family in town she could stay with but I've got nowhere to go. While it wouldn't ruin me, it would certainly be financially painful if she stopped paying her half of the rent. Best case scenario seems to be we live as roommates and stay out of each other's way for 8 months... A pretty bleak best case scenario.
Once we do separate, there's going to be the challenge of divvying up the stuff. We own a lot of nice furniture together. That furniture probably wouldn't fit well into the apartments we'll likely have to move back into after this. It's all just so unclear at this point.
If you've made it this far, thank you for listening. Just writing this was very cathartic. I am open to hearing advice on how I should proceed. Nothing in my life has prepared me for something like this.

2023.06.02 01:02 Humble_Novice Utah Republican Announces Resignation From Congress

Article: Here
Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) announced Wednesday that he will resign from Congress, citing his wife’s health issues.
“It has been one of the great honors of my life to serve the good people of Utah in Congress,” Stewart said in a statement. “My wife and I have made so many dear friends and memories throughout our journey. I can say with pride that I have been an effective leader for my beloved home state, and I’m honored to have played an important role in guiding our nation through some troubled times.”
“But my wife’s health concerns have made it necessary that I retire from Congress after an orderly transition can be ensured,” he added.
The Salt Lake Tribune reported Tuesday that Stewart — who represents Utah’s 2nd Congressional District — was planning to resign due to his wife’s ongoing health issues.
“For more than a decade, Utah’s 2nd district has had a selfless public servant in Chris Stewart. I wish him and his wife Evie health and blessings as they prepare for the next chapter of their lives,” Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) wrote on Twitter following Stewart’s announcement.
Details on Stewart’s wife’s condition were not immediately available.
Stewart, 62, was first elected to Congress in 2013 and currently serves on the House Appropriations Committee and the House Intelligence Committee.
The congressman did not specify when he plans to officially resign. According to Utah law, the governor of the state — who is currently Spencer Cox (R) — will call for a special election to fill the seat within seven days of it becoming vacant.
The special primary and general elections will be held on the same day as this year’s municipal primary and general elections, according to the Tribune, unless the state Legislature chooses to appropriate money to host the election on a different day.

2023.06.02 01:02 broadwall Resources and Tips for Course Registration for First-Years and Beyond

June marks the beginning of registration appointments for first-year students, so it's time for some of you to start thinking about building schedules. To help you do that, I have compiled some resources and observations about the entire registration process both for first-years and future semesters below. I hope they inform and facilitate your academic planning, schedule building, and class enrollment decisions and processes.

Online resources

The Registration Process

Every semester, the registration process for the following enrolled semester takes place in three rough phases: picking courses, building schedules, and enrolling in classes.

Picking Courses

Common factors to consider when picking courses include:
Note for CS students (and probably many other majors): Some core courses are not consistently taught by the same faculty team every semester. For example, some core course might be taught by professors A through F, where A is the best and B is the second best, etc. Suppose that professors C, D, and F are teaching in Fall 2023. If you don't need to complete the course urgently as a prerequisite for other degree requirements, and if the best professors have taught in recent semesters, then you can wait to enroll in a future semester where professors A or B teach that course. This is especially applicable to EECS 370.

Building schedules

Start with combinations of courses from the previous step. Here are two typical combinations for first-year CS students in CoE:
Use tools to see your schedule options for each combination. Officials will tell you to use Atlas's Schedule Builder, but it's quite limited: It only generates up to 1000 schedules out of millions of potential schedules with your course combinations, it leaves you with hundreds of schedules to evaluate by yourself, and it's pretty slow. Instead, you can try CourseKit's schedule optimizer, which fixes all these problems by searching for all possible schedules and ranking them according to your preferences. This reduces the time you spend building schedules, enables you to evaluate the optimal schedule quality of a course combination, and gives you confidence that your schedule cannot possibly be any better. (Full disclosure: I wrote CourseKit's optimizer, so direct all feedback to me.) Take a few schedules for each course combination as candidates for enrollment.
Now that you roughly know the best possible quality of schedules for each course combination, you can choose whether to return to the previous step to generate more course combinations, evaluate their optimal schedule quality, and so on.

Enrolling in classes

This is where backpacking comes into play, but first, it's important to recognize that the schedule you will actually follow every day is decoupled from the schedule you enroll in on Wolverine Access, depending on your freedom to attend any lecture or discussion or lab in each course. If a schedule you want to follow has some closed or wait listed sections on your registration date, you can replace each of them with another section of the same type and course if and only if that class does not take attendance. Here are a few classes that, to my knowledge, do not take attendance:
Therefore, if your favorite section of one of these classes is closed, feel free to enroll in a different section and keep going to your favorite section. For others, it's best to check with someone who has taken the course.
Once your schedule for enrollment is ready, you can add it to your Backpack. Think of your Backpack as a staging area for the list of classes you will eventually enroll in. You can edit your Backpack by adding and removing specific classes before your enrollment date, and you gain the ability to enroll in the list of classes in your Backpack on your enrollment date. If you built your schedule on Atlas, you can send the entire schedule to Wolverine Access via the "Send to Backpack" button. If you built your schedule on CourseKit, click the "Enroll" button to get a list of class codes to manually put into your Backpack. On your registration date, you will be able to enroll in the list of classes in your Backpack.

After Registration

Both before and after your enrollment, you may need to monitor the enrollment status of classes you are interested in. For example, you might opt for one of your worse schedules because of a closed section in your best schedule, in which case you'd want to switch to that best schedule as soon as the closed section opens up again. You can use Coursicle's mobile app to sign up for notifications when the enrollment status of those classes changes (between Open, Wait List, and Closed) and act immediately when it changes.
Occasionally, when you can't get into a desired class, you can rely on it to open up after the first day of class. CourseKit Predictor has recorded the drop rates of nearly all undergraduate classes in the beginning of Fall 2022, and they are visible in its predictions. If you decide to rely on a class opening up, I'd recommend that you sign up for status change notifications via Coursicle and remember to attend that class from the first day so that you're not in a rush to catch up near the add/drop deadline. Sometimes, you can talk to the instructor after the first session to try to get into the class.
Note for MATH 115 and MATH 116: The math department controls enrollment in MATH 115 and MATH 116 by introducing artificial scarcity. They open up seats gradually throughout the summer to make enrollment opportunities more equitable between earlier and later registration appointments (see figure below). However, you can circumvent this by using Coursicle's notification service. If you want to get into a particular section, have it notify you as soon as the department opens up more seats for that section so that you can switch to it before the next registration appointments fill them up. Unfortunately, this is a zero-sum game: you snatching the section you want prevents another first-year student from getting into it. You might not find this ethical.
Evidence for artificial scarcity in MATH 115 and MATH 116 capacities
This graph also presents convincing evidence that for many courses, earlier registration dates are more advantageous than later ones. Here, section 1 becomes permanently ineligible for enrollment by the middle of July, so those who enroll after that lose this option.
I understand that this post may be made the registration process you are aware of even more complicated! Questions are welcome here or in my DMs. Good luck with your registration!

I have 2 options for new work, and I'd like opinions on which position would lead to a more lucrative career, which position would lead to more leadership opportunity, and which position/industry has a better work/life balance and culture. Also, I have 1 yoe as a process engineer in the semiconductor industry for reference.
Option 1: Process integration engineer at a microchip research company in SoCal. Their goal is to scale up from research to low volume manufacturing. The role would essentially be creating/optimizing an MES and travelers, implementing statistical process control strategies, performing FMEAs, and assessing quality. Pros of this place is a great campus, working with a scale up to low volume manufacturing can be beneficial for gaining leadership experience and technical knowledge, I'd be close to family and friends, there is good job security given the customers they have, and I wont have to work the night shift or be on call. The cons of this place is that the salary isnt too competitive given the cost of living. ~105k total compensation including base, bonus, and benefits.
Option 2: Downstream process engineer at major O&G company in the gulf coast. I've heard that major O&G companies only hire the cream of the crop, offer challenging projects, and are a great way to advance one's career in leadership and technical skills. The description of the job is essentially a lot of safety audits and first responder reactions to process/equipment failures. Very similar to my current position. In addition, it is a graduate program that is structured very well, and the typical career path leads to senior IC technical roles or management. Pros of this place is the experience, the challenging problems, the structured program, good salary, low cost of living area, and opportunities for leadership. Cons of this place is being available at all times of the day and night, being on call, running the risk of layoffs due to the volatile nature of O&G, and being far from family.

2023.06.02 00:55 Superb-Ad4997 Wildflower Weekend Wedding - Budget/Recap May 2023

This subreddit allowed me to plan our wedding. I am so grateful and found these breakdowns especially useful, and now a cathartic experience for me and hopefully a way to give back!
First step that helped us the most was deciding as a team early on what we wanted our wedding to bring to us and our future.
We were inspired early on by This Post and the comments.
We have both been through a lot of life and have a lot of gratitude for the people that have gotten us to this point and wanted to make space to celebrate with all of them in a big way. This inspired the rest of our wedding planning, committing us to a big guest list, requiring a big venue. We invited 304 people (154 households), 179 RSVP’d yes, and had ~10 no-show. Our family and friends live all over the country and some abroad, so we decided to pick a location close to us, but that had multiple houses on site to host our family/bridal party for the weekend (thurs-sunday; saturday wedding) so that we could have more time with those people closest to us.
Total: $69,407 (MCOL area)
Venue: $28,250 “Weekend Package”
Additional Lodging: $3965
Paper: $845
Decor: $992
Florals: $2322
Food: $8133
Alcohol: $3752
DJ: $1925
Photography/Videography: $9839
Clothing: $3930
Other: $3349
Tips: $770
Our wedding was amazing for us. It felt like an event that truly encapsulated who we are as individuals and as a couple, and that chance to celebrate with so many people we love was priceless. It felt like all the spreadsheets we’d worked on for the last 2 years turned into reality. This is the main master spreadsheet I used:
Google Spreadsheet Wedding Planning
It’s created from all sorts of different helpful spreadsheets I found here and from other wedding websites. The “Checklist” really doesn’t start until I realized how easy it is to get lost in needing to capture so many personal little details that would keep me up at night feeling like they were slipping through the cracks. But if you’re starting from the beginning, you will need to include the big ticket “check boxes” that are in the budget portion. Hopefully it can help some others! Happy planning Weddit!

2023.06.02 00:55 ClearSkinJourney I’m looking for volunteers!

Hello! I’m Kiera. A queer, disabled gamer looking to make our spaces more inclusive.
I'm working on an exciting project called Nerds Who Care, and I'd love to collaborate with some passionate individuals to bring this initiative to life. Here's what we're all about:
At Nerds Who Care, our mission is to enhance the gaming experience by promoting healthier, cleaner gaming spaces. We believe that every gamer deserves to breathe clean air while indulging in their favorite games. Our goal is to provide high-quality air filtration solutions and protective masks to gaming stores and conventions, prioritizing the health and safety of the gaming community.
To make this vision a reality, we're seeking collaboration in various areas:
Define The Brand: Let's brainstorm a catchy tagline that emphasizes our focus on clean air in gaming spaces. We want it to resonate with gamers and communicate our mission effectively.
Logo and Visual Identity: We need a killer logo that captures the spirit of our brand and signifies health and clean air. If you have graphic design skills or know someone who does, let's create something awesome together.
Website and Social Media: We need a sleek website that explains our mission, how we plan to achieve it, and ways for people to support us. Additionally, let's establish a strong presence on social media platforms popular with our target audience.
Fundraising and Partnerships: We'll need to launch a fundraising campaign to support our initiative. Let's brainstorm creative ideas and perks for donors. We can also explore partnerships with game stores and convention organizers, offering sponsorship opportunities in exchange for providing HEPA filtration systems.
Expansion and Legal Considerations: Once we have a successful model in our city, we can discuss expanding to other areas. Let's ensure we have all the legal bases covered by consulting with a lawyer to address any potential liability issues.
Looking forward to working with you!
I plan to do the majority of the work, but help with outreach and managing socials from time to time would be great! I understand most (if not all) of us are stretched thin for time and energy at this point, but I think this could really take off.
My inspiration for this was

The 'Minelanders is in its 5th Summer Server Edition now! Our new server opened on May 19th, and the community pitched in to create an incredible new spawn. We're a server with plenty to offer! We believe that Minecraft can be inherently political and strategic when other players get involved. So whether you are interested in building grand designs, griefing and PvP, growing an influential clan, running a commercial empire, or even just playing some Minecraft with a regular crowd, you are a part of something bigger than just yourself. Feel free to join the Discord, explore our community built spawn, and talk with the active community to see if you’re interested in playing on the server. And any time you're ready to start - survival is only 50 blocks away. Hope to see you playing on the 'Minelanders soon!
Vanilla Reimagined
General Information
We love the potential of vanilla Minecraft but feel some aspects of the game have not been properly balanced to allow for vanilla to flourish. Through the use plugins and extensive player feedback we have rebalanced villager trading, Elytras, autofarms, and more. No longer is there one "right" way to play, as we have allowed for all sorts of other forms of gameplay to be valid!
  1. Play in good faith
  2. Be respectful of other players
  3. No asking for stuff, advertising, or being annoying
  4. Griefing is allowed, Lavacasting is not
  5. No cheating
  6. Alt accounts must be known to staff
  7. No releasing personal information about another player
  8. Circumventing intended server behavior is prohibited

Our server has opportunity for building great things with the protection of plots, but don't forget to be cautious! Some players have sticky fingers.

2023.06.02 00:52 ractivator 2012 Ruckus with 24,163 miles. What should I pay?

Looking to buy my first bike/scooter in general. Got rid of the Camaro and got a Ram cause we have a baby in the way. Wanted to get this just for around town and to feel the wind even if it’s only 30-40 mph. Found one in great shape used for $1,800, but 24k miles seems like an extraordinary amount of miles compared to posts I’ve seen here or in scooter. Am I off base on thinking that? How much would you pay for an 11 year old Ruckus with 24k miles??

2023.06.02 00:50 frenchpipewrench Opinions on Offer?

Need your advice on a deal to return to an old firm.
For context I’m mid 20’s male have been in the industry since 2020 and have CFP. Started out at a solo practitioner where I was back office/ paraplanne fix it guy. Really enjoyed my time there but ultimately left to set my sights on greener pastures and work at a larger ensemble firm as I sought out an advisor track.
For the last year, I have been in an associate level role where I have much more (daily) client contact but am not in the primary advice giving chair. I’ve learned a bunch about the soft side of the business. Ultimately, I enjoy the ppl I work with a lot and am well liked and considered a great talent within the firm but will not be given a junior advisor role for at least two more years.
My old solo practitioner wants me back and is willing to carve out a path for me continue to service his clients at a higher base pay than current but this is likely only 20-25 hrs/ week of work. With the remaining time, I can use this to formulate my marketing plan and begin to build out my niche (still TBD) and COI relationships while hopefully servicing some next gen clients of the firm.
Below is the comp structure he laid out:
Base: $80K which includes 3% Firm Revenue Share (variable component of base changes with quarterly billing, so as firm assets rise, base comp rises)
Revenue Share for my clients (zero currently) :⠀⠀⠀
$0-10M 30% / 70%
$10-20M 40% / 60%
$20-30M 50% / 50%
$30-40M 60% / 40%
$40-50M 70% / 30%
$50M+ 80% / 20%
Once I move up a tier, the new percentage applies to my entire AUM. The advisor at the solo practitioner and I have a very good relationship and he wants me to be his succession plan in case he gets hit by a bus, which is a whole other story. I have no producing experience but I believe that I can stick around long enough to make something happen and am definitely a self starter. Not discounting how incredibly difficult it will all be though. No doubt that it will take much longer than I think.
However, this seems like a pretty fair arrangement, no?
