2023.03.30 07:11 camhart73 Aqueous deficient dry eye - Try a whole house humidifier

I suffer from both oil and aqueous deficient dry eyes (latter due to corrective eye surgery, though never had issues with oil prior to surgery either). I've found using a whole house humidifier makes a massive difference for me.
Here's the one I like:
Also, in case you see wild fluctuations in how your eyes feel, buying something to measure humidity levels is a good way to understand if the whole house humidifier would be worth it to you. You can get these for $20: Place them around the home in the places you use the most.
If you have a smart thermostat, it may tell you humidity levels. Just be aware that they fluctuate a lot depending on where you are in the home. I have 3 humidistat censors throughout the house now in all the key places I spend time (office, kitchen/family room, bed room). I have the humidifiers dialed in to keep humidity at ~55%.
This approach has made a bigger impact for me than anything else I've tried. Although it is limited to when I'm within the home.
Other things I've tried:
Hopefully some of this is helpful to someone.

Albino cories with greenish tinge?
My Dad has had a tank for my whole life. Takes very good care of it, makes sure not to overcrowd, and always buys community fish. I’ve noticed some of his albino cories (they’ve been around for a while honestly, not sure how old but at least 4+ years) and I’ve noticed they’ve started to show a greenish tint primarily in their head. I’ve read that this can sometimes be due to bruising - jumping and banging their head on the top of the tank. Just looking to see if anyone has any other theories.

2023.03.30 06:43 CiHoYin How to correctly select the input and output capacitors for developing a new wireless charging solution

With the advancement of technology, the functions and performance of mobile phones are getting better and better. In order to stabilize battery life, the battery is also designed to be larger and larger. In order to improve battery life, some manufacturers have adopted a dual battery design, but it still cannot solve the problem of battery life and portability. When the capacity cannot be increased, mobile phone manufacturers began to shift their targets to wired fast charging. When the rapid development of wired fast charging, some manufacturers began to develop convenient and beautiful mobile phones based on the requirements of some users. Wireless fast charging will eventually form a new wireless charging industry cluster, which will make it easier for people to travel and replenish electricity, while reducing the use of a large number of wiring harnesses, and helping green travel and carbon-neutral development concepts.
The 2022 Qatar World Cup set off a wave of football fever. The wonderful game has become the spiritual companion of many "night shift workers". When they watch the World Cup, radio technology has quietly entered their sights. Because the official World Cup ball "Journey" Al Rihla is powered by a small battery and charged by wireless charging, in order to obtain better design, sealing and stability. The wireless charging device provides a strong power guarantee for the official ball of the World Cup.
The development and trend of wireless charging
The wireless charging technology was installed on the mobile phone PALM for the first time in 2009, and it has amazed the world, but its subsequent development has been unknown, just like a dream in the world, it is only a flash in the pan in the eyes of the world. The time came to 2017. At the Apple Autumn New Product Launch Conference, it was announced for the first time that the entire series of the new iPhone 8 will use wireless charging technology. Wireless charging technology has begun to emerge in the field of mobile phones, driving the development and application of vehicle wireless charging, smart home, robots, drones and other fields.
Now cities are developing towards a "fast" pace of life. People are pursuing higher time management, and the utilization rate of trivial time is constantly increasing, which has led to a change in the direction of wireless charging devices to smaller and more efficient. In line with the tide of the times, leading wireless charging companies have developed the next generation of wireless charging with higher power, longer distance, and higher efficiency to meet consumer needs and improve consumer user experience.
Hard-Core Capacitor Requirements for Wireless Charging
The advantages of wireless charging determine the high requirements for capacitors. First, wireless charging has no wire winding, which is simple and beautiful. Capacitors with smaller volume and thinner thickness are required; secondly, referring to the characteristics of dexterity, portability and complex working environment, capacitors are required to have ultra-high-power hard-core properties while being small in size; thirdly, in technology research and development, capacitors Performance is the "throat" that restricts the further development of wireless charging.
At present, the commonly used capacitors for wireless charging equipment supporting the iPhone are chip multilayer ceramic capacitors, but they cannot break through the bottleneck of "smaller volume and thinner thickness". Due to the defect of the wireless charging effect, it cannot adapt to the new and high requirements of the wireless charging technology solution.
Therefore, YMIN capacitors are researching in the direction of ultra-thin capacitors with higher power, and develop "new capacitors" with better adaptability to wireless charging solutions. After unremitting efforts, YMIN finally developed a solid-state laminated aluminum electrolytic capacitor that meets the above requirements. Capacitors and polymer solid chip capacitors with small size, large energy, and high characteristic stability. Considering that some special and smaller wireless charging solutions require finer capacitors, smaller A-shell and B-shell polymer tantalum capacitors were developed.

Took me awhile but I finally managed to make a high elf I'm extremely happy with :) Sirona, my Altmer battlemage
Mods used: * BI Phenotypes - Archer CBBE * Mild Complexions * Human Skin Tones for ALL Elves * Cerul's Head .tri Edits * Bella Beauty and the Beasts Bundle * True Brows SE * Fia's Eyes - Full Version * KS Hairs - Huxley's Pick * Mysti's Tincture
Cerul's drastically changes the ears for elves so I let Bella override it by placing the latter lower in the load order. I honestly can't tell if Cerul's changes the vanilla presets that much but being able to control the eye slant with the eye depth slider was a huge plus. It's the rest of the mods that really brought it all together, especially the human skin tone (no more jaundice complexions for Altmers lol)
For those curious I'm wearing the really awesome looking Steel Elven Battle Mage Armor (be aware of long hair clipping through if using the hood) and the weapon on my back is the Lunar Guard Battleaxe.

2023.03.30 06:25 Honeydew_paws I Got Stuff :)

Me and my fiancé are getting our rings here soon and I can’t wait till they come, they have beautiful colors, the colors being black and a deep red kind of like a ruby which is my birth stone. To go into further detail (skip this if you don’t want to read it) my ring has and red stone right in the middle and it it held together by four leaf shaped prongs that hold the stone in, so it makes it look like a rose and I thinks roses are beautiful. I love all flowers though, anyways the ring is completely black and I can take it in the shower so I don’t leave it in the bathroom when I take it off before the shower anymore. My fiancés ring has black rims hugging the red lining in the middle of it, then on top of the layer of red lining it has a set of small sized skulls with a slight darker tint of gold lined up perfectly and going all around the ring but placed perfectly in the center of the lining so it’s not touching the top nor the bottom. Then it has medium sized skulls which are a vibrant gold if I remember correctly all placed in the middle just like I said before with the smaller skulls but not covering the smaller ones, still not touching either side of the red lining. I hope that is a good description. I got more stuff but my head hurts and I need to stop looking at my phone.

2023.03.30 06:21 Black_Glove Home DIY advice?

Hello Wellington hivemind. I was wondering where you all look for DIY home maintenance/repaiupgrade sort of advice. Obviously there's Google but it's so heavily skewed towards advertisers now, and I don't want to bother people here with every silly question. Bunnings has some stuff but inevitably leads to them suggesting you buy something from Bunnings. Youtube has videos (duh) but often the specific situation or problem doesn't quite fit. Is there a local (NZ) forum or website or something you'd suggest where people are friendly, helpful and won't get annoyed with lots of questions? I've long ditched facebook and never going back. Hopefully there's something obvious I overlooked (Google search wasn't helpful). Thanking you!

2023.03.30 06:18 Griffsworldofthings About to sell Ninja 400 for a Vulcan S... why?

About to sell Ninja 400 for a Vulcan S... why?
Wheelies. I blame it on wheelies.
Towards the end of last season, after 3 years of riding, my brain wants wheelies. So I started doing them. About a few handfuls.
I LOVE this bike. It's been awesome as I hadn't ridden a bike in 17 years. (I'm 38)
Reliable. Turns awesome. Quick enough. One ride out this season, and I want more wheelies.
But wheelies lead me to ride like an ass, and risking dumping the bike, etc.
I don't like the Harley scene. I'd like a better passenger bike so the wife can last longer than 45 minutes on it.
So a 2022/23 Vulcan S is what I'm thinking. Just paid this bike off and should have the title in a couple of weeks.

SO... I've seen quite a few threads on here about this...
Will I come back within the same season to a rocket? Who's taking bets?
Chicagoland area: 2020 Ninja KRT w/ABS 6,300 miles.

Tinted Windshield

2023.03.30 06:13 msogcodngor When Audyssey sets speaker levels to +5db lets say, does that mean when I set the avr volume to -5db, that speaker is actually playing at 0db?

Im worried I might blow out my speakers one day because of how audyssey has my speaker levels bumped up by a few db. Especially curious what will happen when I plug in my diy subwoofer and run correction again, wonder if it's possible I can blow it out just with testing.

2023.03.30 06:09 vren55 [A Fractured Song] - Chapter 183 - Fantasy, Isekai (Portal Fantasy), Adventure

Cover Art!
Just because you’re transported to another world, doesn’t mean you’ll escape from your pain.
Abused by her parents, thirteen-year-old Frances only wants to be safe and for her life not to hurt so much. And when she and her class are transported to the magical world of Durannon to fight the monsters invading the human kingdoms and defeat the self-titled Demon King, Frances is presented with a golden opportunity. If she succeeds, Frances will have the home she never had. If she fails, Frances will be summoned back to the home she escaped.
Yet, despite her newfound magic and friends, Frances finds that trauma is not so easily lost. She is dogged by her abuse and its physical and invisible scars. Not only does she have to learn magic, she has to survive the nightmares of her past, and wrestle with her feelings of doubt and self-loathing.
If she can heal from her trauma, though, she might be able to defeat the Demon King and maybe, just maybe, she can find a home for herself.
Teaser: Martin and Ginger are thrust into an unenviable role.
[The Beginning] [<=Chapter 182 part 2] [Chapter Index and Blurb] [Chapter 184 on April 5 or now on patreon ]

Despite his curly crimson beard and heavyset build King Jerome was quite a mild-mannered man. His soft chin and cheekbones lent the man a face more inclined to smiling than scowling.
He was doing both, which wasn’t something Martin nor Ginger had seen that. His eyes were narrowed and brow furrowed. His lips however were tilted in a wry smile.
“We did give you the authority to make treaties with Queen Janize directly, but these are harsh terms for us, Sir Martin, Lady Ginger.”
Martin had set up their mirror so he and Ginger were standing in front of it. He dipped his head, placing one hand over his chest. “I am afraid I don’t see any other option, Your Majesty. You know of the strategic situation and the dragons that Thorgoth has under his command. We didn’t want the civil war in the first place, but now we must end it or risk annihilation.”
Queen Forowena, despite her limp, was pacing around her chair. One hand clenched her chin. “We don’t even know if Janize will agree to meet with us in the first place. Though, that’s beside the point. You want to know if we ought to approve of this at all.”
“Yes ma’am, I mean, Your Majesties.” Ginger swallowed. “More importantly, we want to know if there are any terms you are demanding Queen Janize to accept.”
The eyes of Forowena and Jerome met. No words passed between them. Jerome only raised a thick eyebrow and Forowena nodded, before turning to the pair. “No, but I do have one question. Did Elizabeth and Frances tell you about my infertility?”
Martin winced, whilst Ginger coughed officiously. “Elizabeth did, Your Majesty. She said that she will take full responsibility for that breach, and states that trying to keep the secret was impossible given the nature of her mission and our involvement in it.”
Nodding, Martin braced himself and clasped his hands behind his back. “Which brings the question, Your Majesty, with all due respect, did you intend for us to assassinate Queen Janize and her child?”
Forowena and Jerome again glanced at one another. This time, Jerome was giving his wife a knowing smile and the Earl was pinching her nose.
“To speak truthfully, Sir Martin, Lady Ginger, we were not sure ourselves whether we wanted to kill Janize if she was pregnant. We have continued to debate the question and its consequences,” said Forowena.
Jerome grimaced. “What we knew for sure was that Erisdale had to be put to siege. Now, I argued that my sister should be spared as with her child.”
“And I argued that Janize and her child were a threat to our rule and our chosen successors. I don’t want to kill them for both moral and practical reasons, but I was not sure how to neutralise them.” The Earl ran a hand through her hair and glanced at her husband. “Dear, I believe that we can accept most of the terms that Martin and Ginger have offered our behalf except for the second point.”
The king took her hand, running his scarred fingers over Forowena’s knuckles “You are correct my dear. We will allow Janize's child to enter the line of succession, but we have chosen our successors.”
Martin did his best to keep his expression neutral. “Your Majesty, I don’t understand. There’s no other direct descendant of House Grey left.”
Forowena sighed, her eyes meeting Martin and Ginger’s. “No. That’s why after very careful thinking, we planned to appoint our successors. We have even talked to all the other lords and ladies who support us and even our kingdom’s most powerful mages. That’s why there’s no way we can fully accept that second condition. It would be impractical if not impossible to get them to switch their support.”
Martin frowned. He suddenly recalled a call where his mothers and sister had given him a very strange look. They seemed oddly proud, even when they’d just been talking about family gossip.
Jerome nodded, “That and we would still be at war with Alavaria. A child successor would be inherently less appealing, and especially one underneath the influence of Queen Janize at that.”
Rubbing her temples, Forowena drawled, “It’s also why Janize and her child are such a threat. Unless Janize formally renounces her claim, she’d always be able to make a bid for the throne through her child. Not to mention she could just influence the throne through her child if he or she becomes ruler of Erisdale.”
Ginger coughed into her fist. Lifting her chin, she glared defiantly at the mirror. “With all due respect, Your Majesties, it would be better than continuing this pointless civil war. So long as we execute Darius and strip the rest of the Traditionalists of their power, who cares if Janize has some influence over her child? She won’t be able to harm Alavari in Erisdale, or affect lasting change. We’ll still be here. We’ll watch her and if she goes too far we will have Queen Titania’s Alavaria assisting us.”
Martin narrowed his eyes. Forowena and Jerome were exchanging looks again. Both were smiling at each other, but the ends of their lips were curled into just a bit of a smirk.
“Your Majesties, perhaps you can enlighten us on who you decided to be your successors? If they are not a very popular choice, maybe we can accept Janize’s terms.” The knight watched the king and queen carefully as his words hung in the air. He watched as King Jerome blinked, tried to avert his gaze, before forcing himself to look him in the eye. He noted how Queen Forowena forced her features into an expressionless mask.
Martin felt a cold shiver run through the very core of his being. Unconsciously he grabbed Ginger’s hand. His fiance blinked, tuning to look at him with wide eyes. Martin swallowed.
“That is, unless for some insane reason you’ve chosen me and Ginger?”
The queen let out a small breath, while trying to keep her neutral expression. Jerome’s shoulders sagged and he patted Forowena’s shoulder. “Told you he’d figure it out.”
Ginger’s head whipped back to face the royal couple. “Wait, what? Impossible. I’m a commoner. A former convict!”
Forowena’s eyes narrowed and her voice rose. “You’re also popular with the people, one of our national heroes. If your little rebuke to us was any indication, you also are loyal not to Erisdale’s monarchy, but our country and people. As for the matter of your commoner background, you’re marrying Martin and you know what that means.”
Ginger hands clasped behind her head, almost screamed, “Yes, I am marrying into a distant relation of the Royal Family and one of the founding noble houses of Erisdale. I was ready for that! You’re asking me—us to become King and Queen of Erisdale!”
“Yes.” Forowena growled, bitter tears wetting her eyes. “And we would never do so if there was no other option, Lady Ginger, but I can’t conceive a child!”
Jerome’s hand reached over to squeeze his queen’s shoulder. “And there’s no way I’m divorcing my queen. I am a man of my word and I vowed to be with Forowena until death do us part. That won’t change.”
Martin coughed to clear his throat and crossed his arms. “Then why didn’t you just have a surrogate give birth to your child, Your Majesty? I know it would be shameful but did you consider that we may not want to be king and queen?”
The king blinked, looking a little like an owl caught by torchlight. Forowena grimaced. “I did discuss this with Jerome, but I couldn’t quite convince him. You do have a good point, Sir Martin. However, even if Jerome did finally agree to father a child with a surrogate, we would still want you and Ginger to become the next King and Queen.”
“Right, potential child ruler. Not good for Erisdale,” Ginger muttered.
Forowena grimaced. “That and how many children could Jerome father? He cannot simply start fathering children haphazardly. More importantly, children are vulnerable. Even if by some miracle I could bear children, I would push for you both to be added in the line of succession.”
Jerome nodded solemnly. “Neither of us are willing to risk the fate of Erisdale on a child, even if it was our own. Considering that our original discussion was about the potential for Janize’s child to inherit, I think you see our point.”
Ginger, biting the tip of her thumb, yanked her hand out of her mouth. “We couldn’t have been that popular a choice, though…right?”
Forowena grinned. “You weren’t everybody’s first choice, but you were on the lips of many and once we started to seriously press those who were hesitant, they agreed you two were the best option. They even pledged to support you.”
Ginger glanced at her husband, but he was still crossing his arms. He’d gone so still for a moment she wondered if he was breathing. Then her mind caught up with her.
“Every lord and lady under your command agreed on us?” she stammered.
“Including your sister Mara, Martin,” said Jerome.
Clutching her hands, Ginger took a deep breath. “But why not Lady Edana—
“Of Erlenberg and not Erisdalian,” said Forowena.
Jerome shook his head, wincing. Forowena sighed. “Otherworlder and clearly too close to Prince Timur to make her look out for Erisdale’s interest.”
Ginger pressed a hand over her mouth, her free hand clenching into a fist and opening. “Shit. This…this is really happening.”
Martin closed his eyes and nodded. “I believe so. My…personal feelings aside, I will do my duty. But what do we tell Janize?”
“That we’ve appointed our own successors, but her child will be in the line of succession, with our successors house to take precedent over her own. That might complicate the succession law for the future, but that can be resolved in time.” Forowena snapped her fingers. “Ah, and we will also make it a condition that the amount wealth and land confiscated will be determined on the basis of who the Traditonalists persecuted and to provide compensation for property damaged by their forces in the war.”
Martin and Ginger exchanged a glance. “Including Alavari, Your Majesty?” Martin asked, his voice quiet.
Jerome nodded. “That is the intention, Sir Martin. Now…I believe you and your fiance have much to discuss. If that is all, you may request to be dismissed.”
“We do wish, Your Majesties,” said Martin, bowing. Ginger mirrored her fiance and the images of the king and queen faded.
Promptly walking over to one of their chests, Ginger fished into it and drew out a bottle of wine.
“Care for glass?” she asked as she fetched a goblet.
Martin sat down heavily onto his bedroll. “Yes. We…well nothing is guaranteed. I mean we haven’t even gotten married yet.”
Ginger poured herself and her fiance two glasses and handed one to Martin. “But we pledged to after the war, and so have the other lords and ladies of Erisdale. Damnit, of course Frances, Elizabeth and the others would support us, but everybody else?”
“It’s unexpected, but now that I think about it, most people wouldn’t want to be named heirs to Erisdale. It’ll be a hard job rebuilding this kingdom after the war and essentially starting a new dynasty.”
Sitting down, Ginger sipped from her glass. “Dynasty. Fuck, I’ll have to do something about my family.”
“Give your parents a stipend and nothing else.” Martin pursed his lips. “Of course, if you don’t want to be queen, Ginger, you can just—”
His fiance leant against his shoulder. “Finish that sentence and I will smack you. We’re in this together, Martin.”
“I know and I love you. I just wanted to make sure.” Martin took a deep gulp of wine and swallowed hard. “Hopefully, this is the last of the big responsibilities we get.”
Ginger snorted. “I would not bet on it my dear knight.”
Her fiance chuckled, before his lips pinched together. “Promise that you’ll never start calling me Your Majesty, please.”
Wrapping her arm around the blonde man, Ginger smiled. “You’ll always be my shining knight, Martin. Nothing will change that.”
“Thank you, Ginger.”
Pulling her feet off the table where Janize’s mirror was and sliding them back into slippers, Leila crossed her arms. “How many years since you’ve seen your brother?”
“Not since the civil war started, so about two years.” Janize smiled gave Leila a peck on the cheek. “Honestly, I am both irritated and a little proud of Jerome. I didn’t expect him to hold out, much less turn the tables on me. I always teased him when we were younger. He was too honorable, to the point that he was dumb. I suppose he just needed to find the right group of people to help him along. How long before the meeting by the way?”
Leila glanced at the high noon sun outside. “Not long now. I’ve also redoubled the security spells and checked the room.”
Janize nodded serenely. “Good. Anything else you can think of with regards to the conditions we have and their terms?”
The Otherworlder tapped her fingers on her arm. “Well, it’s not exactly something they demanded, but it might come up. They probably will demand compensation for the Alavari that we’ve been experimenting on. It’s probably why they demanded land and wealth from our rebelling nobles.”
Leila frowned, meeting Janize’s narrowed grey eyes. “I mean, it’ll be hard to argue with them. They’ve captured several of the labs and have our research notes—”
Janize raised her hand, her usually relaxed brow now furrowed. “Leila, what are you talking about? What do you mean by labs and experiments?”
The Otherworlder’s eyes widened and she found herself sitting up ramrod straight. “Um, is this a particularly amusing prank of yours?”
“We are minutes away from a critical meeting. Why would I joke about this with you now?” Janize hissed.
Leila blinked and slowly shook her head. “You’re kidding me. There’s no way you could have not been aware of this. The castles and labs were garrisoned with army troops and Red Order mages.”
“Leila this is the first time I’ve heard about these labs and castles—” Janize grimaced as the mirror began to glow, the sign that a call was coming. “Oh dear. Oh dear. I…I suppose I will have to request to be informed.” Settling herself, the queen touched the mirror and watched as King Jerome, Queen Forowena, Elizabeth, Ayax, Martin and Ginger appeared.
“Hello Janize,” said Jerome, coolly.
Janize smiled without mirth. “Greetings, Jerome. I must begin this meeting with a bit of a somewhat incredulous confession. But please bring me up to date on what exactly has been going on in the labs you have found that were apparently operated by my forces?”
The queen’s smile thinned as sceptical scowls and narrowed eyes met her question. Ayax blinked, tail whipping side to side. “You’re joking right?”
Janize cut before the stunned looking Reformists could ask another question. “I wish I was, but I was just informed by Leila here that they did exist. Speaking of which, how did you come to know about them, Leila? This is not something discussed in my palace.”
A grim, almost haunted look came over Leila’s face. “I found out about it recently as well. A few months ago, Master Scarlet of the Red Order requested Otherworlder assistance in defending their outposts and castles. They had no strategic value so we pressed her and she told us they were magical research laboratories and they couldn’t move the research easily. After that meeting, Earl Darius tried to convince me, saying that it would please Janize if I sallied forth. I wouldn’t normally have believed him, but our situation was so desperate I thought it made sense. I started to prepare a counterattack, but then it didn’t matter anyway because you folks in the Lightning Battalion started to attack them and there is no way in hell we would survive a fight with a full army division.”
Taking a deep breath, Elizabeth tried her best to get her own temper and confusion under control. “You mean you weren’t told what was going on in there? When did you find out about the children?”
“Our standing orders were to take Alavari prisoners of war and hand them over to the Red Order. So I figured—” Leila dropped her arms to her side. “Hold on. Children? What the fuck are you talking about? I thought they were experimenting with prisoners of war and criminals?”
A cold snarl twisting her normally serene expression, Ayax rose to her feet. “You Traditionalists haven’t even been fighting the Alavari! How could you have gotten prisoners of war? And experimenting on them is still wrong!”
Feeling a headache coming on, Janize gingerly massaged the side of her temple. “Wait, children? I thought that was propaganda you were spreading. Where the hell did you even get children from?”
“From the Alavari that lived in Erisdale, and from those that you kidnapped from Alavaria!” Elizabeth hissed.
“I authorized funding and troops for magical research, not that.” Her stony-masked stoicism wavered as her lips twitched. It was as if the queen was trying to prevent a wince. “It’s not that I don’t believe you, but this is extraordinary.”
His eyes narrowed, King Jerome leaned onto his elbows. “Janize, I don’t understand. How could you have known nothing? You don’t trust Earl Darius or Master Scarlet that much.”
Janize pulled her hands from her temples. Drawing herself straight, she narrowed her eyes at the mirror. “No I don’t, but this is the first time I’ve heard about these experiments.”
Leila blinked. She knew her lover better now and as good at hiding her feelings the queen was, she did have some subtle tells. In this case, her shoulders were just a bit too stiff, stretching skin across her high collarbone. “Janize, I’m sorry, but that’s…not entirely true isn’t it?”
The queen tilted her head toward the Otherworlder. Her grey eyes glared daggers at Leila for a brief moment, before she turned back to the mirror. In an arch tone, she hissed between gritted teeth, “I know they were making mana batteries. However, it’s the first time I’ve heard about children. I have been suspicious about why Master Scarlet and Earl Darius require so many facilities for some time and have been trying to audit them. They’ve been stonewalling me with magical and military jargon or burying it in budget books under nondescript lines.”
Leila blinked. “Oh that’s why you were asking me what those words meant.”
“Yes, dear. Now, if the interrogation is over, I will agree to offer compensation to those children and their surviving family members. In return, I have my own conditions.”
Forowena sneered. “Name them. We have our own conditions as well.”
Janize grinned back. “First, my child is not to be next in line to the throne of Erisdale. In fact, I would like to renounce my right of succession and that of my child.”
It was rather hard for Elizabeth, Ayax and their allies to hide their surprise. Admirably, King Jerome only managed to show his shock through a series of rapid blinks. “That’s a major concession, sister.”
The queen turned her chin up. “In return, once you depose Earl Darius, you grant me his personal lands and make me an Earl.”
Crossing her arms, her thoughts racing a mile-a-minute, Elizabeth muttered. “You’d become Erisdale’s chief powerbroker.”
“I am surrendering after all and most of my allies will be gone. You got to give me something. Besides, if I remain Earl, I’d be able to keep what remains of the Traditonalists in check. Exile honestly doesn’t suit me, as comfortable as it would be. I want my child to have a future, not one where he or she has no allies and is bound to the crown.”
Forowena and Jerome glanced at one another, exchanging frowns.
Martin also looked to Ginger, who shook her head. He nodded. They’d had their own discussion about Janize’s possible offers and they had their own opinion.
“Go get em, Martin,” Ginger rasped.
The knight swallowed and coughed officiously. “If I may be so bold, Your Majesties, I propose we grant Queen Janize a county, not an earldom. In return, we shall protect her from reprisals and reparations that the Crown of Alavaria will undoubtedly request.”
Leila rolled her eyes. “What crimes? As you said, we didn’t fight Alavaria.”
A shit-eating grin blossomed over Ginger’s face. Idly twirling a lock of her hair, she crossed her legs. “Earl Darius’s forces kidnapped Queen Titania’s niece, Princess Morgan Greyhammer from the Alavari Academy of Magic and subjected her to a year of torture and experimentation.”
In the silence that followed, all that could be heard was Leila trying not to sputter. Janize was quiet and still. Yet the color was drained from her face.
“That dumb bastard,” Janize whispered.
Leila slammed her fist on the table, causing Janize to flinch. “Fuck.”
“So a county it is, then?” Ginger asked in an airy tone.
“Yes. Do you confirm your side of your terms?” Janize asked.
“We do. Our demand was that your child could not be our successor, which you have agreed to.”
“So the dynasty of the House of Grey ends I suppose.” Janize let out a shuddering breath and shook her head. “Then who is to be your successor?”
Martin and Ginger clasped each other’s hands in unison before facing the group.
“We are,” said Martin slowly.
“Until someone better is found,” said Ginger.
Janize arched an eyebrow. Leila sighed. The queen, however, nudged her Otherworlder quiet and gave a nod of assent. “A wise choice. Shall we continue?”
Author’s Note: So yeah, this is a bit of a twist, let’s see what happens.

2023.03.30 06:06 WegianWarrior Patent time: The shavette system of Edward Weck

Between 1908 and 1914, Edward Weck was granted four patents which, when taken together, creates a full on shaving system centred around a shavette – a shavette system if you want. Interestingly enough, this was around the same time as another shaving system was patented. And much like Clark’s system, Weck’s shavette system contained a razor, a blade, and a way to package the blades. Weck also came up with a stiffener, to make the blade stiffer.
The Razor
The first patent covers a razor and a blade.1 Much like Gillette’s original patent, the core of Weck’s idea was to provide a razor where you would replace the blade. In the words of the patent:
The object of this invention is to provide an article of this class with a removable blade so that whenevera blade becomes dull, it may be removed and a new one substituted therefor.

The razor looks – to my eye at least – very much like a traditional straight razor. Where you would expect to find the blade and tang, however, there is a folded sheet metal holder that the blade would get inserted into.
The blade in the original patent looks very much like an elongated GEM blade – a hardened core with a sheet metal backing wrapped around the non-edge side.
All in all a pretty solid patent by itself. But it seems that Weck wanted2 more.
The Blade
An obvious item to improve on a razor with replaceable blades is the blades. Most traditional knife blades are laminated.3 This means that you’ll have a hard and brittle core that will take a sharp edge. Surrounding the brittle core you’ll have softer steel – unable to take a good edge, but much more resilient to breakage.

Weck’s improved blade that would go with the shavette system is made up of three parts. A blade strip made of hard steel with a ground edge. A folded mild steel reinforcement that extended all the way to the bevel. And a thicker and heavier mild steel reinforcement that extended less than halfway up the side.
Weck claimed there were several benefits of this multipart construction. Mainly that the blade would be more rigid while retaining a flexible edge. If there were more benefits than these two, he forgot to put it in the patent.
The Stiffener
Two years after Weck got his patents for the razor and improved blade, he got a patent for a stiffener for razors. The purpose of such a thing seems a little mysterious to me, so let us see what the patent text has to say:
The object of my invention is to provide a wafer blade razor, with a suitable stiffener which will so stiffen the blade so that it can be used advantageously under severe conditions of service.
So it seems like Weck though that the blades for his razor were not stiff enough for shaving a heavy beard. A folded over sheet metal piece was his solution.

The patent for the stiffener goes into quite a bit of details of the razor and blade too, but it is broadly the same as his original shavette patent. The stiffener is described as being made of sheet metal, with one side almost touching the cutting edge, and the other being shorter. It had a number of recesses along the back. These, the patent claims, gives the stiffener a more neat appearance.4
The Safety-Razor-Blade Holder
Once you have a shavette system using replaceable blades, you need a way to store and distribute said blades. While a wrapping like the one Kaufman patented would work,5 Weck patented a different solution a few years after the other patents. As an added bonus, Weck’s holder was reusable.

The holder consists of a cylinder, in which there is a number of slots. The slots are shaped so that the reinforcing backing of the blade rides on shoulders, so the edge will not touch the bottom of the slot.
On one end of the cylinder is a rotating lid, which can be turned to expose one slot at a time. When the slot is exposed, a blade can be extracted. Or inserted, if so desired.
Thoughts on the shavette system
In all fairness, I don’t actually know if Edward Weck actually saw these four patents as a system, or as a series of improvements of his original idea. But then again, I don’t know if Gillette saw his idea of a thin, replaceable blade and a holder for it as a shaving system either.
All told I think the four patents would have served as the basis for a viable ecosystem. All the elements are in place; a razor that looks the part, sensible blades, and a blade holder for distributing and storing the blades. The blade stiffener is an added bonus for those who have steel wool stubble.
According to Waits’ Compendium, Weck mananged to get his razor manufactured under the tradename of Sextoblade.6 Again according to Waits, the tradename was renewed in 1930. this implies that the razor and blades were successful enough to survive for at least two decades. Waits’ Compendium also have pictures7 of what looks very much like the patented stiffener.
It is unusual for me to write about a patent that actually resulted in a manufactured razor. But it is nice to see that not all patented razors disappears without a trace.

  1. Which would be improved in the second patent.
  2. And wanted it bad enough to pay for more patents.
  3. Other ways of achieving the same is damasking the blade., or pattern welding it like the Norse did with swords.
  4. And prevent the stiffener from being too rigid.
  5. But was already patented by Kaufman, and I assume Weck wasn’t interested in paying royalties.
  6. Trademark filed in July 1908, about a year before he was granted the patent for the razor.
