2023.06.04 15:52 TheRydad Outlook Tasks Recurrence Patterns and Categories Getting Shredded
Over the past year or so, I have noticed that my Outlook tasks categories and recurrence patterns have been getting modified daily. The categories get stripped completely and the recurrence patterns get modified.
I have a lot of tasks that I set with recurrence patterns like "recreate task 6 months after marked complete". Those get changed to "task recurs every 6 months starting ".
This only seems to happen to tasks that went overdue the day before.
I suspect it could be something like To-Do that is doing this since it doesn't support categories and doesn't have "complex" recurrence patterns, but I have removed To-Do from every device that I sign in to using my Exchange account.
I do use the Reminders app with my Exchange account on iOS, but I have been doing that since the inception of the iPhone without having problems until recently.
Anyone have any ideas? I'm looking forward to any thoughts or ideas on how to troubleshoot/figure out where this is happening.
Note: I would like to move to another task management platform, but I have built nearly two decades of workflows around Outlook/Exchange tasks and have lots of views built using categories. I can work around the categories by using folders or whatever else is used in apps like To-Do, but the recurrence pattern "create new task X (months/days/tears) after completion is used on dozens of my tasks and I don't want to give that up.

2023.06.04 15:49 MayorOfKirkstanistan Shift & Turn vs. Stack & Tilt: My instructor's take
So I'm taking weekly lessons this year in an effort to go from low single digits to even lower single digits, and part of the plan of attack is weekly lessons, which I've actually never done (previously I would just ask for a lesson when I was struggling). We like to talk swing philosophy so I took the opportunity on Friday to ask his opinion on the modern shift & turn swing versus stack & tilt. I have never loved stack & tilt and kind of assumed he didn't teach it because he clearly wasn't teaching it to me. However, that assumption was wrong. He does teach it to some students. Here is my best paraphrase of what he said:
Stack and tilt is something he does teach, but it's primarily taught to someone who picks the game up later in life and didn't play sports growing up that promoted hand eye coordination. For example, an ex baseball player who picks the game up at 30 and is still reasonably athletic he would not teach stack and tilt to. For some though, stack and tilt can be "simpler" in ways and can get them hitting the ball better in shorter order.
The big reason he doesn't teach stack and tilt primarily is that he sees it as a ceiling limiter. He doesn't think the ceiling is the same for an athletic person using shift & turn vs. stack and tilt. The person who is using stack and tilt will primarily be at a disadvantage distance wise. There's nothing to say you can't be incredibly accurate and "good" with stack and tilt, but distance matters so it's not a philosophy you see being taught to the young athletes starting up. This is especially true if their goal is competitive high school golf potentially followed by competitive college golf.
Would love to hear if other instructors on here (I know there's a few of you) agree with this take. Again, I am paraphrasing, so I hope I represented his views well but it's certainly possible I misinterpreted or misunderstood something.

2023.06.04 15:48 dave2843 Why do kids scream when playing? (It's mostly girls to be fair)
I've spent 30 years living with my house backing on to a a fairly popular small park. It's seems even worse in recent years, but for as far back as I can remember, why is it that kids scream when playing or even something proper mundane happens. I've found girls to be responsible for 90% of it (just an observation).
Sometimes they are really worried screams and you're convinced something bad has happened and I'll get up to make sure everything is ok as I have a good view across the park from the back, and some little girl will be totally losing her shit over a butterfly or something dumb.
Is it some early form of attention seeking? Is it some early form of loving drama? Genuine question, not here to offend.
As somebody who doesn't want children, busy warm days on my park remind me why.

2023.06.04 15:48 Glittering-Sock966 Imperium, Plus Ultra. Chapter 3
I would like to receive recommendations or grammatical errors as English is not my first language and I will probably have several mistakes.
The imposing imperial palace stood imposingly in the heart of the capital city of Burgundy. Inside, Emperor Marcos Alioes VII ruled with an iron hand over the vast Sidereal Empire. Seated on his golden throne, wearing a regal robe and an ornate crown, he embodied power and authority.
Emperor Alioes was a man of steady gaze and serious gestures. He had ascended to the throne after the death of his father and had since further consolidated control of the empire. His vision was clear: to expand the domain of Burgundy through the conquest of new worlds and secure the future of mankind.
In a lavishly decorated meeting room, the Emperor was surrounded by his closest advisors. They were discussing the upcoming mission to the unknown star system, where the presence of an alien species had been discovered.
The advisors presented different views on how to approach this situation. Some advocated cautious diplomacy, while others insisted that the only way to secure resources and territory was through direct military conquest.
The Emperor listened carefully to each opinion, weighing the options and evaluating the possible implications. After a moment of reflection, he raised his hand in silence and pronounced his verdict.
"I hear your words and consider your views," the Emperor began in a firm voice. "However, the time has come for the Sidereal Empire to demonstrate its might and expand its borders. We will not send a diplomatic mission, but we will send our star fleet to take control of that star system and subdue any species that stands in our way."
The announcement left some of the advisors surprised, confused. Others were unmoved, such as the Principal Advisor, and others saw it as an opportunity to enlarge the empire.. But the Emperor allowed no objections and made it clear that his will was irrefutable.
The chapter concluded with Emperor Alioes affirming his determination to expand Burgundy's dominion through force. The shadow of war loomed over the galaxy, and humanity, under the Emperor's leadership, prepared to confront the alien species in a conflict for supremacy.

2023.06.04 15:48 ShidwardTesticles There’s a jackdaw nest filled with babies on my roof. Today I found a dead baby bird in my garden. Will the mother blame me?
So this jackdaw made a nest in my chimney, and the mother has been somewhat territorial towards me. I sleep in the attic and often poke my head out the windows on the roof, often just to enjoy the view of the city. A few times the mother has swooped at me when I do this, and other times it’s perched itself close to me and cawed at me very aggressively.
Today, I went to hang laundry outside and I find a very dead baby bird on the ground, I don’t think it’s been dead very long because it doesn’t look very decayed yet, but it’s covered in flies so I think it’s definitely dead. I’m assuming it’s one of the jackdaw’s babies. I got close to take a few pictures to send my family (who are away on holiday atm) and then sat in the garden for a bit on my phone. If the mother saw me during this time, is there any chance it thinks I’m responsible for the baby’s death? I don’t want to feud with a bird that’s probably smarter than me, so I’m hoping it maybe killed the baby itself, or is at least smart enough to know I didn’t do it.
Also is there anything I can do about it? Should I put it in the bin or just leave it there for nature to consume? I’m scared to go near it in case the mum comes after me here’s a pic of the dead bird
, not sure if it’s a jackdaw or some other species. No idea how it even ended up in my garden but I’m assuming it was dropped by something

2023.06.04 15:47 kkiselmo Just filled with anger at my In-Laws
One year ago, my (24F) fiancé (29M) ‘Henry’ had a huge falling out with his parents.
He made one comment to his mother about how she needed help, and she entirely blew it out of context. Her and her husband shouted and screamed at fiancé, basically ran him out of the house. Then his mum had the audacity to play the victim and ‘try to’ down a bottle of meds immediately after the fight, her husband shouting at me to tell Henry what he made his mum do.
Henry developed a stutter for a few months, and he seemed quite traumatised from the fight. Since then, neither of his parents made an effort to apologise or make amends, and they seem almost indifferent to the argument (they’ve tried to rig sweep it). His dad rang late last year to ‘fix things’, only to deflect blame, and completely dismiss Henry’s feelings and point of view. The call was 2h long and there wasn’t any effort to fix things at all from his dad!! At least my fiancé took some form of responsibility and apologised, but they can’t even seem to do that.
We’ve been together over 5 years now, and neither of them have reached out to me either. All they care about are their egos and their dogs, they don’t give two shits about their own human child. It just makes me so angry that they keep living their lives without paying for their actions. I was the one to build Henry back up from his lowest point, pumping every ounce of love I had into our relationship, because his own parents couldn’t.
I don’t think they fully comprehend how badly they’ve damaged their relationship with him, because he’s at the point of completely disowning them now. It makes me so sad and angry because my parents are so loving and his are just entirely stupid, selfish people. I just wish they’d make the effort to try repair this and actually tell their son they love him, but at this point I don’t know what the future holds.
I just want to not care about this anymore, but I’m so mad at the injustice of it all. I feel like screaming at them to make them realise how wrong they are and how much they’ve hurt the love of my life. I really do share in his pain.
How do I deal with the anger?? How do I get over this? Ugh.

2023.06.04 15:43 Coolace34715 Goodbye Midjourney!
Hey everyone, I wanted to share an experience I had today that left me feeling frustrated and disappointed. I made the decision to cancel my MidJourney account because of their restrictive policies and lack of support for free speech.
Today, I tried to post some pictures that included references to the Chinese President, only to be met with a threat of being banned. It's disheartening to see a platform prioritize protecting a leader who holds anti-immigration, anti-LGBTQ, and anti-free speech views.
It's clear to me that MidJourney is more concerned about appeasing the Chinese President than upholding the values of openness, inclusivity, and freedom of expression. This situation reminds me of CEOs who justify their massive profits at the expense of innocent children working in sweatshops.
In a world where we should be standing up for what's right, MidJourney has chosen profit over principles. It's nauseating to witness a company disregard the very values that should guide their actions.
As users, we deserve a platform that respects our opinions and allows us to express ourselves freely. Let's support platforms that uphold these fundamental values and refuse to bow down to oppressive regimes.

2023.06.04 15:42 forwardslashroot Routing issues between two sites
I have a site-to-site VPN via Wireguard and IPSec and I propagate the route between the two sites using eBGP. If I were access site B from site A (main), everything works. Site B is able to access the services that are hosted in Site A without any issues.
I would like to policy based route site B to access Netflix through the site-to-site VPN and site A will PAT site B's traffic.
Here are the steps that I implemented at site B:
- I created a gateway on site B, which is the WG interface of site A
- I created an alias using the ASN of Netflix and AWS CDN and named it nfx_aws
- I created a firewall rule with the destination of the nfx_aws
- I set the gateway to use the gateway I created in step 1
Here are the steps that implemented at site A:
- I added the WG interface to the existing Internet rules that I have been using to access the Internet. Rule's destination is not RFC1918 addresses then send to WAN_DHCP
- I created a NAT Outbound rule with the source as my remote subnet (10.2.0.0/24)
- The NAT address is "Interface address"
When I view the traffic using the Live View, I see site B is using the policy based routing I created, however, I do not see any inbound from site A's Live View logs. I have enabled the logs on both site A and B's firewall rules, but I do not see a deny statement at site A. It seems like it is not even reaching site A.

2023.06.04 15:42 throwRA_51293 I don't like my best friend anymore
Hey all, I'm posting here cause I feel I need to vent about this and can't in real life as our lives are very entangled
I have a friend that I met at work, we clicked on so many things, we both grew up and were living in a conservative religious town, people don't move out of the family house until marriage, lots of rules related to family... Etc
We always talked about our dreams of leaving but as women it is even harder for us due to the society I managed to leave for a great job and we kept communication and At some point she managed to leave to the same place I'm in,
I offered to host her until she found a place of her own instead of renting airbnb, the housing market here is pretty good and you can find a place in a week (at that time), while emphasizing that I like my own space and that I am able to finally live alone.
She came over and at the start was not looking for a place, I understood she wanted to see the new city and took her around, at some point I was under a lot of pressure at work, as well as stress of not having my space, and helping her manage her fears, she didn't realize that moving out for the first time means having to rely on yourself, and with all of that I snapped once and apologized after, she accepted the apology, that was her wake up call to find a place which she did, but still she didn't move as she was afraid, it took a bit longer but she seemed settled in her new life, we still met 4 times a week atleast as she was still not used to being alone, and I couldn't meet more cause I have my life and my social battery is not high
I introduced her to all my friends to help her out, connected her and provided all what I learned in my years before... Etc
A year goes by and she slips out that although she appreciates what I did, she did not like that I didn't support her more at the start. That I was pushing her to find a place, I reminded her that I agreed to host her instead of the month of Airbnb she thought of before, but she ended up staying more with me
It seems She still expected more and had some resentment in her heart, I explained to her things from my point of view, she was shocked and apologized, but it really felt awful for me that after all what I did, she still saw that I should have done more when I did more than anyone had ever done for her.
Some time goes by and I figure she still has some feelings that I should have helped more, and that made me start to resent her and to start focusing on what she is doing for me
She does some nice gestures once in a while, but I reciprocate them and do more than them constantly, I noticed how she twists or hides information when telling a story to make herself appear as the victim
I can't cut her off now as we have a lot of mutual friends, and entangled lives, so I might need to fade out slowly as I don't want and don't like to pretend I like someone when I don't Now I'm seeing her alone once or twice a month and probably will be less and less as time goes And with the group I'm focusing on others and being more professional
That is it, sorry for having you read all of this ranting, I just couldn't vent it to anyone close to me.

2023.06.04 15:40 qUxUp (OC) I tested the NYXI Wizard controller for a 27 days on Nintendo Switch OLED. I was bloody surprised by the A/B/X/Y buttons. Here's about a 3220 word old-school text review with some photos. Enjoy! :) (there is also a TLDR for those who prefer short posts)
| || |TLDR: submitted by qUxUp to Switch [link] [comments]
NYXI Wizard is unique due to it's Gamecube controller inspired design and A/B/X/Y button layout. It's ergonomic for medium or large hands. The D-pad could be improved upon. Currently there is no way to turn off the blinding indicator lights, hopefully it's something that will be fixed in a firmware update. The shape, combined with mechanical triggers, mappable back-paddles, turbo and gyro make the NYXI Wizard a versatile primary or secondary controller. Lastly, the NYXI Wizard's conductive adhesive switches used in the A/B/X/Y buttons are just smashing. They are responsive and pressing them feels perfectly weighty. Whether it's GRID, Crysis, Super Smash Bros or something else NYXI Wizard has got you covered (as long as it fits in your hands).
Disclaimer: I wrote everything & took the pictures. This post here is the original source. This is my second Nintendo Switch related text review in our community. The previous review was received quite well and people asked if I could do a joy-con comparison and so I asked NYXI if they are interested in providing me with their NYXI Wizard controller with the purpose of writing an exclusive review intended for the /Nintendo
subreddits. They were. My condition was that the review would be a pure oldschool text review with eight photos taken by me. I get to keep the controller. I won't be receiving additional compensation in any form (no commission fees, affiliate marketing or ad-revenue etc). As my Nintendo Switch controller collection grows, I might write more reviews for our Switch-related subreddits. This review is based solely on my experiences with NYXI Wizard and 27 days of testing. Note: I asked NYXI if they were willing to add a coupon code, they said yes. Here's the code: Jakk (10% off, works on NYXI's official website). Any fees earned by this code go to NYXI. It is not linked to me. If I ever chose to get my personal referral codes, where I earn income, I will state it in the disclaimer.
PS Moderators if you want me to remove the code, please say so in the comments or message me. I will remove the code. https://preview.redd.it/xdrs7cbq304b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a5f7d10921a0c2dae5d13a3110289a3c2af1f384 About me.
Born in 80s. I've been playing videogames since the early 90s. A NES clone was my first console followed by GameBoy and a PC etc. I'm a freelance copywriter. Professionally I've been a part of the gaming tech field & tech journalism for about two decades (Europe/Estonia). It's a interesting field, but it can have an affect on how you view or enjoy videogames.
On PC my favorite videogames were Heroes of Might and Magic 3, Rainbow6: Siege & DayZ. On Nintendo Switch it's either Mario Kart 8 or Door Kickers: Action Squad. Now comes the "heartbreaking" story. I lost the ability to enjoy PC gaming about five years ago. A few years ago I wanted to buy a Christmas gift for my fiancee. She was getting burnt out at university. The users of /switch
were kind enough to answer all sorts of questions I had regarding the Switch console. So I bought her a Nintendo Switch OLED. She loved it (once she got used to the controls) and it helped with the stress. At some point I thought that I'd try one of her switch games with no expectations. Fell in love with the ability to play on a couch and less serious tone many Nintendo games have (GameBoy flashbacks). And here we are, I don't have to "borrow" her switch anymore. I have my own Nintendo Switch and too many games and controllers :)
What this review is and is not.
The NYXI Wizard will be reviewed as a Nintendo Switch joycon and compared to other Switch joycons that I own. A major portion of the review will be dedicated to real life use scenarios. A limited amount of technical details will be included. This review will not cover every detail about the NYXI Wizard (such as how to change all of the settings, pair, turbo etc). The manual has all that information and can be found online.
What's a NYXI Wizard and what do I think about certain marketing?
According to some a major selling point of the NYXI Wizard you will never buy another Nintendo Switch controller again and it will never develop joycon drift. We should always be skeptical when it comes to claims that cannot be backed up by any testing or examples. How do you prove the part of "forever"? While I was never sold on the promise of forever, the NYXI Wizard intrigued me enough with its unique button layout.
The box & what's in the box?
The box for the controller itself is a sturdy blue cardboard box. Inside there is the controller, a small manual, a 127 cm regular plastic charging cable and an extra set of interchangeable joystick rings. Maybe I'm spoiled by past experiences, but I would really have wished to see some sets of interchangable joysticks inside the box (more on these later). https://preview.redd.it/7iz1hfgt304b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=684faf0f651c15a3d6e2a8c58eb368aa1e26ac42
How's the manual?
The NYXI Wizard's manual is decently written, but it's one of those rather small manuals.
Luckily you can find the manual from NYXI's website https://nyxigaming.com/pages/nyxi-instructions
Lets talk about the interchangeable joystick rings & potential for modding.
The controller comes with round and octagonal rings. Octagonal rings can be helpful in 2D or fighting games for example (Mortal Kombat). The round rings are suitable for all games but octagonal rings have more limited use. It's a nice extra to have, but it is an extra. It can be tricky to change the joystick rings for the first time. Once you replace the rings about five or more times it gets easier. https://preview.redd.it/qn5sdgl0404b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=577d0693fae3721188960bd9952988a60b091173
I personally perform better in games with the more modern round joystick rings. Obviously it's a matter of preference here. However I made more errors in movement with octagonal rings. The difference was about 7%, but to me the difference was there. Currently I have round rings installed and I don't see myself switching back to octagonal rings. https://preview.redd.it/dzy0dc23404b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a57c5964bea022d14b320891028c3a64d45262ec
When it comes to modding the NYXI Wizard the interchangeable joystick rings make it easier to replace the thumbsticks. You can even install original GameCube thumbsticks with some effort. A youtube video explaining the process is titled "I Made The NYXI Wizard Better..." (shoutout to 128KB).
The NYXI Wizard has A/B/X/Y buttons that are backlit and it's possible to change their brightness. Even if you turn the background light off, it only has an affect on the A/B/X/Y buttons. There are two indicator lights on top of both joycons and those cannot be turned off. It would have been a nice feature to have where the indicator lights turn off or at the very least are slightly less bright.
Note: I reached out to NYXI about the indicator lights. They informed me that while currently there aren't any such plans they might be able to fix this issue in a future firmware update.
Lets talk about the A/B/X/Y buttons.
In comparison to Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, joycons or Hori Split Pad Pro, the NYXI Wizards buttons feel more responsive. They require a bit more force to push and it's a pleasant feeling. The 8BitDo SN30Pro has similar buttons but still not quite as good. Overall the buttons have a solid feel to them and are on the heavier side when it comes to the amount of pressure you have to apply. Among the Nintendo Switch joycons and controllers the NYXI Wizards A/B/X/Y buttons have a unique place.
Note: I reached out to NYXI for more information about the A/B/X/Y buttons. Here's the reply:
"The A/B/X/Y buttons on our controller use the conductive adhesive switches. We chose these switches for their durability and responsiveness. As for the force required to press the buttons, we wanted to create a tactile and responsive experience for our users." https://preview.redd.it/0m5xjuy9404b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=eae6480ac63d917e43f41ef12a223ffecce1cced The layout of A/B/X/Y buttons.
One thing is for sure. The button layout of NYXI Wizard is different. My favorite feature of this layout is the massive A button right in the middle. In the games I play often, A button is one of my most commonly used buttons. Because the buttons are largehave a different layout, it also brings a small challenge to re-learn the locations. It took me about 2 or 3 days. If you end up wanting to use the controller but want to make the layout a bit closer to traditional Swtich joycons then there are a few ways to approach this.
- Remap the buttons in the game.
- Remap the buttons in Switch.
- Assign one of the A/B/X/Y buttons to the remappable back-paddle.
What about the D-pad?
I really like the looks of hard plastic they have used to make the D-pad. But pressing the D-pad really isn't very enjoyable. The edges feel a bit too sharp, so to speak. I'm not a fan of the D-pads position either. The D-pad is the hardest to reach out of all the Switch controllers I own.
Note: I think that a potential upgrade here could be to make the D-pad edges just a tiny bit rounder and move it slightly closer to the left stick.
Lets talk about joycon drift and thumbsticks.
Joycon drift is an issue where the thumbstick starts to give false signals to your console and move your character in a direction that you didn't intend. It happens due to dust getting into joycons or joycon wear. NYXI Wizard has addressed this by using a hall effect joysticks which is a technology that is supposed to never get joycon drift. Setting the technology itself aside, the thumbsticks feel good to use. Their movement is smooth and responsive. The Wizards thumbsticks are similar in size to Hori Splitpad Pro but bigger than the regular Nintendo Switch joycons. A standout of these thumbsticks is the rubbery finish which is very pleasant to hold. It has a nice grip and has a slightly soft feel to it. Out of all the Switch joycons and controllers I own, this is the best thumbstick finish. https://preview.redd.it/tyn167xh604b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=3a3f75e060397c5dc9e19a38eafea5d65a2eafbf
With confidence I can say that NYXI missed an opportunity by not including extra thumbsticks that are taller or shorter. In the end a thumbstick is a rather cheap component but it can add extra value to the gamer. My hope here is that NYXI might release additional thumbsticks of different sizes as optional accessories. The good news is that I got confirmation from NYXI that they plan to release accessories like thumbsticks with various sizes soon. https://preview.redd.it/q1cn2lng404b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e7f76014cd98e10b2cb00ca4f9050d44e003f96c
This controller uses mechanical triggers. These are responsive if you compare them to joycons or controllers that use non-mechanical triggers (such as the official Nintendo Switch joycons or the Hori Split Pad pro). It takes very little force to press these triggers which may be beneficial for longer gameplay sessions. The travel distance of the triggers is pleasantly short and the trigger makes an audiable click when its activated. The short travel distance makes it easier to rapidly press the trigger. The Mobapad M6 Gemini has similar triggers. Hori Split Pad Pro, official Nintendo Switch Joycons & Pro Controller have slightly less responsive triggers in comparison. https://preview.redd.it/63xqj92j404b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ec840a5ecf52f2e34a44eb66b4aea4d308e9ef41 Ergonomics?
If your hands are big enough then the Wizard is an ergonomic controller. One of the main advantages of NYXI Wizard is that while holding it, your finger position is different than when holding a Hori Split Pad Pro or the official Nintendo Switch joycon. Using different styles of controllers can be one little thing that you can do to take care of your hands and fingers. I've used it as my main controller for 27 days and am happy with the ergonomics. This means that it's my main joycon for now. At some point I will go back to Mobapad M6 and then something else or return NYXI Wizard.
Gyro, mappable back-paddles.
Gyro works well, even in FPS games such as Crysis. There are also mappable back-paddles present on the the Nyxi Wizard. The paddles themselves aren't very well placed in my opinion as they are a bit hard to reach, but they have a nice texture on them and a responsive feel. Among other buttons, you are able to map the back-paddles to triggers (which isn't possible on all joycon back-paddles). https://preview.redd.it/e5tuce3n404b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ee3c9e2f37263db576d672a16bdfd1a68d6a89b7 The vibration motor.
The vibration motor is decent. It isn't HD-rumble, but in a way that's to be expected as the only joycons that have HD-rumble are the official Nintendo Switch joycons. All vibration settings work well, I personally liked playing on low or medium setting. The highest vibration setting was nice when the Switch's volume was louder, otherwise sound of the motor broke gameplay immersion.
Bonus content: what may people with smaller hands think of NYXI Wizard?
As a new part of the review I asked my fiancee (who has small hands) to test the NYXI Wizard and share her impressions. She was fond of how the triggers felt. The amount of force you had to apply and click of the triggers appealed to her. Another one of her favorite features was the way joysticks were textured. Obviously the yellow one got more praise due to its cute color. NYXI Wizard was wa-a-ay too big for her hands. She pointed out that if she had to play something that requires faster reactions, it would be nearly impossible with this controller. The size of the controller, the distance between buttons is just too great. For games like Picross it was okay, but after some gameplay time the NYXI Wizard made her hands hurt. So what's the verdict here when it comes to the NYXI Wizard if you have smaller hands? Try it before you buy it. It's likely that controller might just be a too big. https://preview.redd.it/apmj5dmk604b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b6e78b5bb1168a39b2d94d1fa9b4fcc208cd4e3c Most common questions?
Can the NYXI Wizard be used to wake up your Nintendo Switch? Yes it can.
Will it fit inside a carry case that's meant for Nintendo Switch OLED + Hori Split Pad Pro/Mobapad M6 Gemini? No it won't. NYXI offers a case for the Wizard on their website.
Can it be used as a controller? Yes it can.
The NYXI Wizard is a Gamecube inspired joycon/controller that is executed well with room for some improvement. The asking price of $69.99 seems to be fitting. It doesn't have a direct controller to compare to due to the unique features such as the layout and interesting A/B/X/Y buttons. In my opinion the A/B/X/Y buttons are among one of the best features of the Wizard. Yes, these four buttons aren't mechanical but they have a very pleasant resistance and travel distance. The price is worth it to those who like the size & layout of the controller and value features such as mechanical buttons, triggers & unique A/B/X/Y buttons.
Will a gamer benefit from the features that come with the pricetag? Yes, we will (most of them).
Will a newecasual gamer benefit from the features? Yes, some of the features (like the mechanical buttons and different layout with good ergonomics).
And here is a comparison table.
Rating 1-5 (5 being the best).
I did my best to rate various features of the Switch joycons that I own. Keep in mind that such comparisons are subjective and ratings might vary from person to person (mostly depending on shape & size of your hands). All of these are rated as joycons and are not rated as a controller.
The price is for the regular model of any controller and is based on the official pricing I found/received. This does not include sales or limited edition color schemes that may cost more.

https://preview.redd.it/j01jbu5p604b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=730126bed19a45b8f49c191fd39001f84cbfc3d2 Here's a link to some of the photos I took of the NYXI Wizard controller. Photography equipment used:
- The interchangeable joystick rings are a novelty item for most users. I would recommend them as an additional extra item/accessory that you can add to your order.
- It would be beneficial to have thumbsticks of various sizes. The groundwork is already done and NYXI has made it very easy to swap the sticks. Adding short/medium/tall stick options in the store would make sense.
- Nintendo Switch has a dedicated fanbase and a decent amount of them really enjoy changing the way their console looks. The ability to order sticks of various colors (such as yellow, pink etc) would be a treat to those who like modding their Nintendo Switch and the joycons.
- Additional color schemes and designs/transparent or semi-transparent casings for the controller might appeal to gamers. For example the recently released Zelda themed Nintendo Switch Pro Controller proved out to be a massive hit. Bonus: I got confirmation by NYXI that more colors will be released soon.
- Adding a way to lower or turn off indicator lights would be a welcome change. It's possible to turn off the A/B/X/Y lights but you cannot disable the indicator lights. Be warned: the indicator lights are BRIGHT! If you are gaming in a darker room and have turned down your Switch brightness to preserve your eyes, the indicator lights will stick out like flashlights. There is an easy fix: put a sticker on your NYXI Wizard and cover the indicator lights. However most people don't want to put stickers on their joycons for basic functions.
- Outside of the colors themselves, the plastic used in the controller is a major factor in how the controller feels in the users hands and if users consider it to be "premium". It's worth looking into different kinds of casing materials. Nintendo Switch Pro Controller has a premium semi-glossy finish and the plastic smooth. Another good example is the 8BitDo SN30Pro which uses a matte plastic casing and also feels solid.
- Making the D-pad edges just slightly more rounder would make it more pleasant to use.
- Moving the D-pad closer to the left stick would make it more ergonomic.
- Placement of the back-paddles could be improved on in terms of ergonomics.
- A compact version of the NYXI Wizard might appeal to many.
- Adding adjustable analog triggers might be considered.
- HD-rumble would make gameplay more enjoyable.
- A larger manual would benefit many customers.
- If interchangeable joystick rings ever become sold as accessories then increasing the color and finish options would be a welcome addition to the NYXI selection.

I hope you liked the review :) Congratulations to everyone who made it to the end! Any and all thoughts about the controller are welcome. NYXI employees will read this post and the comments. So you can use it as a easy way of giving your own personal thoughts regarding this controller (and features you would like to see). Mods if you need me to remove anything from the post that is against the rules, please message me. I will edit as needed.
My personal thanks to Lyra & the entire NYXI team!
2023.06.04 15:40 AbdurrahmanAF General info to know
I've been thinking of starting a business set of emails with Tutanota. I need it for a small school with around 6 teachers and 1 of them having admin privilege's. Everything is based in New Zealand. Some questions I have (along with any good advice, tips or information I should know) would be great to know:
- How easy is this to set up?
- What's the difference between premium and teams? Could I just use teams for all 6 of my employees?
- Will there be an admin account for both teams? And if so, can the admin account view the received and sent emails of all the other emails?
- Explain how the per user pricing works please. If I have 3 users on the teams plan which I renew yearly, that will cost 15 Euros per month?
- Can someone explain what the extra email addresses are for? If I get 5 custom email address, can I not hand those out to 5 of my employees?

2023.06.04 15:36 BolsonaroIsACunt Am I missing something with the bounties?
I've surpassed the point with Caij where I speak to her, exchange my first bounty puck etc. Then when I go to the saloon, there is no option to get anymore jobs or view any kind of bounty board system? The options are "shop" which brings up the gear I can swap the pucks for, or "talk to Caij" which just produces some scripted dialogue and doesn't allow me to pursue any jobs. Could be that I'm just missing something stupid 😅

2023.06.04 15:36 TheyCallMeDanil [22, Male, NY] College City Kid Looking to Make New Friends
Hello and good morning,
My name is Danil (Dan), and I am a 22-year-old college junior pursuing a degree in cybersecurity. I consider myself a down-to-earth, altruistic, and sympathetic individual who puts others' views and feelings before himself. I'm also quite passionate and can be a chatterbox in the digital world, but this can be viewed as a more exaggerated version of me than say, the real world, where I'm more timid and shy (I still don't understand the reason or explanation for this occurrence).
When it comes to communication preferences, I prefer voice and video calls. However, if you'd be more comfortable with texting first, I have no problem with that either and can get along with texting just fine; Maybe we can exchange Discord or Snapchat handles and see how it goes. If you feel like we'd get along well, or would like to know me better, you may send a message or let me know.

2023.06.04 15:34 Absxec Note taking tool for oscp?
I'm embarking on my OSCP certification journey and looking for a note-taking tool that can enhance my studying process.
Ideally, I'd like to take comprehensive notes on each topic and then transform them into a practical to-do list based on the information I've gathered over time. For example, if I discover port 80 open while scanning a target machine, I want my note-taking tool to suggest the next steps based on my previous experiences. It would be great if it could also provide multiple routes for each subsequent step.
I'm seeking recommendations for a note-taking tool that can fulfill these requirements. I'd prefer to avoid AI-powered apps to ensure they don't raise any concerns during the OSCP exam. While I've heard of Obsidian, I'm unsure if it fits the bill since I have to manually create backlinks in my notes, and I'm not entirely sure how the 'mind map' view could assist me.
Any suggestions or insights would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
