2023.03.30 20:07 nilupagla Zava is homophobic and other theories

Ths show has made a habit of dealing with taboos in sport - last season it was mental illness, this season it is homosexual relationships. So here goes my theory.
  1. The avocado thing - it makes me think that Zava is not willing of other opinions/cultures. It's his way of the highway.
  2. His tattoo shows Christian influence and then he's also got the whole spirituality thing going. It makes me wonder if he is religious to the point of homophobic.
  3. Zava making the starting 11 instead of Colin seems hugely significant.
So here's the theory. I feel Zava is going to bully Colin. And this happens as we reach the season endgame. And this divides the team.
Ted is faced with the ultimate choice - winning the trophy by keeping Zava in the team. Or play Colin and bench Zava.
Of course he'll do the right thing. And I think to unite the team, Ted is going to come out himself and face his feelings for Trent Crimm.
So yeah, it's probably silly, but let me know what you folks think.

2023.03.30 20:07 OafishWither66 Help with Gigabyte PSU

So i am very new to the world of PC building and I made a rookie mistake of purchasing a P750GM gigabyte psu by accident. I just wanted to clear a few things After researching i found out my PSU might potentially explode under high stress. But, there was an apparent "fix" done to it by gigabyte. Also, my system will pull in around less than 600W, and it being a 750W PSU it shouldn't be under high stress (I'll be playing on an FHD monitor). My PSU is also not a part of the recall units and there weren't very many cases after 2021 regarding it bursting into flames (at least according to what i found).
I am planning to get a new replacement PSU in like 4 months, sadly cant really just buy a new one just yet ,trust me if i could i would. I just wanted to ask, if i turn off the power every night to the system, and taking into consideration what i said above, it shouldn't really be a problem for like 4 months right? PC Specs : CPU - 5800X GPU - Gigabyte 6700XT OC MOBO - Asus B550-F Wifi II Ram - 16x2 3600MHz Corsair Vengance LPX Cooler - Deepcool AK620 Storage - 2x1TB PCie 3.0 NVME M.2 Crucial P3 PSU - Gigabyte P750GM Modular Case - Corsair 4000D Airflow Case fan - 6x 120mm Corsair AF120 (Regular Red, and yes i know i need to buy a fan hub since there arent enough ports on my MOBO)

2023.03.30 20:06 daydreams172827 I can't find a job and I will surely be homeless in a few months time.

Last year, around June I quit my job and left an extremely physically, mentally, and s*xually abusive relationship to move back to my hometown and assist in end-of-life care for a family member. In August, they passed away. I've been applying ever since.
I need a job. I've needed a job for over 6 months now. I've applied and applied and applied. The only places that want to reach out to me are blatant scams and abusive workplaces that will take advantage of me. (MLMs or Sales position that pay less than legally allowed, in a state where $15.50 is minimum wage.)
Mind you, I haven't been picky with applying. It's been everything from janitorial work to food service to executive positions. If it's near me and open, you best believe I'd apply. But every time I get a letter or email within a week telling me I wasn't selected. I can't afford gas to go out and physically apply. Even when I have done it, I've just been told to apply online, where I'll surely be ignored.
I'm an artist and I'm struggling to make commission work as it's hard for me to find an avenue to advertise. Even on my art account on here, I don't have enough of a post history to post onto any art servers. My attempts are automatically flagged as spam and my posts are then deleted.
I'm an experienced dental assistant, yet no office I've applied to has hired me.
I'm a hard worker. I can do just about any job you ask of me. It's been extremely disheartening and depressing to open my emails to only be greeted with rejection letters.
I don't know what to do. It's been hard finding motivation to get out of bed every day. I know I'm a great worker. I'm dedicated. But with the job market the way it is right now, I don't know how I'm going to survive.

2023.03.30 20:06 _cosmik Anyone else late dx and suffer from insane imposter syndrome?

I was diagnosed at 27 by an autistic psychologist, after self identifying for about a year. I am female and very high masking. I recently had my dx corroborated by a new psychiatrist I was seeing for an adhd consult (not a full eval). So it’s been.. nearly three years and I still ask myself “well am I ~actually~ autistic though?” Like what if I just have something else and desperately convinced myself that I’m autistic for the sense of community or comfort of an identity or something?
I’m pretty low support needs (most of the time) and I feel like the rhetoric I see from autism parents, professionals, and just general consensus outside of the nd movement can totally get to me.
It’s a weird in between place to be when you’re not “autistic enough” but also not neurotypical enough. Sucks sometimes.
Disclaimer: I know being high masking is a privilege, and having low support needs is also likely due to privileges I have in many areas of my life. I don’t mean to complain about that at all. Just the weird limbo feeling of not being enough either way.

2023.03.30 20:06 gar1250 How to serve a stop and go?

So I've been having a go at the nascar stuff on LFM at the moment and I'm not sure why I can't clear my stop and go? I tried pitting with no joy. I then realised there's a little dude near pit exit. Stopped at him until he waved me to go again but it still didn't clear. This is at Brookdale (not sure that's a real track?). Anybody can tell me what I'm missing.

Hey what’s up I’m looking others to play games with. I can honestly say after 3 years of searching I have only about 4 people who I play pc game with. Well Imma keep trying and maybe I’ll find that one person who I can game with every once in a while.
A little about me, I’m from the east coast of the states so my time zone is est. I’m 21 I like to watch some good ole anime and like listening to music. I’ve Also been collecting video games and I can say I have a nice collection even though my most expensive games are the Pokémon games.
Well enough about me let’s talk about games. I won’t like right now the main game I’ve been playing has been overwatch 2. I play both ranked unranked and I am currently a silver 2 in damage. Some others games I own and play are Left for Dead 2, gmod, Tower unite, Osu, Deep rock galactic, phsmo, and I also own gamepass and I can’t forget to mention fortnite but no build. For osu I can really only do 4 star maps and I recently just bought deep rock so I don’t know much about it. I’m down to try some new games but I do have some I will not play. Those include mmos, cods but if it’s Cold War I’ll play that. I think that’s pretty much it but for parting words. DO NOT SEND ME SERVER INVITES. I’m actually building one myself and it’s a bit small right now but if you’d like to join I would really appreciate you.

2023.03.30 20:06 Vast-Bee Can you guys critique my Spanish learning plan?

Hello! My goal is to learn Spanish and I’m willing to set aside a good amount of time a day to learn. I took Spanish in high school so I know a little bit, but I’m nowhere near fluent. I was wondering if you guys could tell me what you think of my study plan. Are there any exercises I should add/take away? This is my daily plan so far:
-listen to an episode on the Language Transfer app/take notes -listen to/watch a couple videos on Dreaming Spanish -Switch to watching TV shows in Spanish (with subtitles, for now) -10 minutes of Duolingo (I know it’s not the best app, but the reminders are so relentless that it helps me stay on track lol. I do it in the morning and I feel like it’s a good remindegets my brain in Spanish mode)
Is this a good place to start? Should I be doing grammar exercises/worksheets as well, or should I worry about that later?
Thanks to anyone who’s willing to help!

Yet another day of sitting here wondering if I could manage to find someone to enjoy some of my free time with. So, if you're in the same time zone or near the area of Binghamton NY then maybe we could find ourselves entertaining each other when we are both are able to get together.
I'm 5'9 with icy blue eyes, white-as-white chocolate complexion, and a fit/muscular build. We can exchange pics if you're comfortable, or you could just give me a little description of yourself so I can get an idea of who I'm talking to.
1.Mary Jane over Jack Daniels..Do you agree?
2.A night in over a night out. What would you rather do on a night in than go out?
Those are some ideas for how to start the conversation. If any of this interests you, I think you know how to get ahold of me.

2023.03.30 20:05 VastoLorde2861 Just finished Yakuza Kiwami 2 and I need to rant

So let me preface this by saying that this rant will only focus on the plot of kiwami 2 (especially towards the end, my god, that was bit of clusterfuck) and not the game as a whole. As a whole, I loved kiwami 2. My second favorite in the series so far (0 > k2 > k1).
I liked the new characters the game introduced - Kawara, Kaoru, and Ryuji. GODDAMN, I fuckin loved Ryuji as a character. Actual yakuza, doing yakuza shit. Classic tale of a fierce rising dragon going against an old, legendary dragon. Love it. That was supposed to be the A-plot of the game (or so the player is made to believe in the beginning). Until it just fucking isn't. The whole Jingweon Mafia B-plot REALLY takes over the main narrative near the end, which derails the supposed A-plot that is good ol' fashion yakuza power struggle. And it wasn't that I didn't care for the Jingweon plot at all. It had its moments. Although predictable, I liked how Kawara's and Kaoru's stories ended. But the entire bs at the end on top of Kamuro Hills almost had me screaming. Just when I thought I was done with the B-plot, they fucking bring back Terada from the dead and then he is the bad guy, but then Takashima comes guns blazing and now HE'S the bad guy and Terada knew it all along and now you have to trust him, and so on. All of this really started getting on my nerves. And I'm not even gonna talk about the fake bomb and other minor asspulls (that much is a given when playing Yakuza). Thank God the fights with Ryuji and Kiryu and Kaoru's moment made up for all the bs in the end.
Tl;dr I just wanted more screentime for Ryuji, man. An hour or two of the plot from the Jingweon mess could've easily been dedicated to his power struggle instead. Onto Majima saga for me now.

2023.03.30 20:05 oneeyedpiratewhale Company keeps trying to charge my debit card after I have cancelled

Any help will be appreciated!
I paid for a self storage service and later decided to cancel it because of the hidden charges. I paid for the first month, and then I cancelled it 4 days before the payment date for the 2nd month.
I still have £10 deposit that I paid into my online account with them. They were supposed to use it for my first month payment but they never did that. In the contract I signed with them, I only had to give a 7 days notice. So according to the terms, I only had to pay for 3 additional days which the £10 is more than enough to cover. The staff even mentioned the same thing on email. She made it clear if I ever cancelled, I would only owe them the amount for the missing days regarding the notice.
I sent them the cancellation in writing via email and they did acknowledge they have received it. But since then there's been multiple attempts to charge my debit card, which is £92. I usually use my Revolut card for companies I don't trust. So they can never take any money from me after I cancelled. The card has now been frozen.
I was furious when I found out about the attempt to charge my card. They also sent me a letter on email that if the £92 is not paid up, a 12.5% interest will be added.
I sent them an email, explaining I don't owe them any money, with all the numbers laid out. I mentioned if they are trying to charge my card again without my consent, I will report them. I will also go to an ombudsman.
They never have the nerves to reply me. I was gonna let the whole thing go because I don't wanna waste any more time. A week later, they just trying to charge me a random amount that comes out of nowhere, £15.62. My card is still frozen so my money is safe.
Is there anything I can do about this? I don't want them to be able to get away with this. I googled their reviews on Trustpilot. They do this very often apparently. I am in a lucky position that £92 won't cripple me if they did manage to take that money from my account. But I have been poor and I remember what it feels like. I don't want them to be able to get away with this kind of bullying behaviour.
Any help will be appreciated!

ok i know im gonna get hate for this and downvoted as hell but i don't give a fuck about the Nashville shooters gender. that to me is the LEAST important. the fact that this is being treated by the news like it's some magical unicorn just because of the shooters gender is just gross. im pro LGBTQ+ all the way, but this shooter doesn't represent the LGBTQ+ message that i stand by AT ALL and won't get any ounce of my respect EVER. i wanna see law makers stop saying "thoughts and prayers" over and over again every fucking time a shooting happens, and get off their damn ass and actually pass change to prevent these mass shootings from ever happening again. im genuinely worried about my future kids of my own being a victim in a future mass shooting. btw, i don't give a fuck if your democrat, republican, green party, liberal, conservative, progressive, etc. WE NEED FUCKING CHANGE NOW and we need to truly get our poltical veiws aside and actually live up to our nations name "the UNITED states of america" we lately have been "the divided states of america, we need to fix that.

2023.03.30 20:05 DTG_Bot This Week at Bungie - 03/30/2023

This week at Bungie, we’re still recovering from the emotional roller coaster that was last week’s story mission and this week’s remembrance centering around Amanda Holliday. While we’re still making our best attempt at pretending we aren't sobbing messes over our favorite mechanic, we did want to share our preview of the mid-Season weapons update, a fun behind-the-scenes look at development animation horrors, and an update on what our Player Support team is working hard on.
Here’s what we’re going to be digging into this week:
  • A preview of our mid-Season update from the team.
  • Answering a question about one particular weapon players are searching for.
  • A behind-the-scenes look at placeholder animations regarding that gun.
  • Update from our Player Support team on known issues and coming updates.
  • The community’s favorite #AOTW and #MOTW picks of the week.
In case you missed last week’s blog, here’s a helpful TLDR:
  • We said farewell to the man behind our beloved Commander, Lance Reddick.
  • Shared a quick wrap-up of a recent Crucible blog post.
  • Shared some changes to the Root of Nightmares raid.
    • A bonus heads up that Master and Challenge Mode begins this week.
You can check out last week’s update here to learn more!
Before we move on to the actual TWAB, we wanted to pay tribute to the incredible Amanda Holliday. Last week, we all said goodbye to a character that proudly walked the Guardian path in every way but her title. Holliday gave her life during Season of Defiance, and she did so in the most Amanda way possible: like a compassionate Badass with a capital ‘B.’ No matter her trials, her heart never shied away from caring about those around her, even when her mind begged her to be more reserved. We saw it with her friendship with Crow, and against all odds, we saw it in the small ways she showed our Vanguard that she was there to support them. We also saw it each time we spoke with her, even if we just needed a little ship tune-up.
Image Linkimgur
On a more personal note, I worked on aircraft when I was active duty military, so I always looked up to Amanda as a character and felt a special bond with her. I could see myself in her. I wanted to be her. She was a Light and had a strength I don’t even think she knew about. It has always been inspiring, and her journey will continue to inspire long after her sacrifice.
Amanda Holliday gave up her life to help those around her, for those who needed protection. Needed safety. She sacrificed herself for a cause she believed in, and it’s our job as Guardians to make her proud.

Time For a Difficult(y) Conversation

We've been keeping an eye on community feedback on overall difficulty since Lightfall's launch, and we have some changes in today's update and future updates that retune certain experiences. In today’s update, we’ve reduced Legend and Master enemy HP scalars for non-boss units, which we felt were a little higher than we liked:
  • Reduced the enemy HP scalar in all non-raid/dungeon Legend and Master activities by 10%.
  • Reduced the co-op enemy HP scalar in Legendary Avalon by 33% in a full fireteam.
We've also made some additional reductions to Commendations requirements so players can reach their milestones at a more enjoyable pace:
  • Reduced Hawthorne's weekly challenge Commendations target from 20 to 5.
  • Removed Guardian Rank objectives that require players to give Commendations from Ranks 7, 8, and 9.
  • Further reduced Commendation score requirements for Guardian Ranks 7-9:
    • Rank 7: 100 (was 460)
    • Rank 8: 250 (was 790)
    • Rank 9: 500 (was 1,290) ##Mid-Season Preview, Weapons Edition
Hello everyone, and welcome to another mid-Season weapons balance pass preview! Senior Design Lead Chris Proctor here. This is not going to be a huge one, but we feel that the changes we do have are impactful to the sandboxes in both PvP and PvE. Also, as a note in case you missed it, in last week's patch, we corrected an issue with Target Lock that was making it significantly more forgiving to use than intended, which originally would have been included in this patch, but we felt the change warranted being pulled forward.

PvE Primary Weapon Balance

We wanted to see how the PvE sandbox shook out after the release of Lightfall, not necessarily to see if primary weapons needed a buff, but more to see how much we should buff them. We've done quite a bit of testing on these numbers, in content ranging from Heroic Nightfalls to Legendary campaigns, all the way up to Grandmasters and we think that the changes are impactful without invalidating the difficulty of the appropriate levels.
Image Linkimgur
In Heroic and Legendary content, you should be more likely to one-shot red-bar enemies depending on your weapon type, and even in GMs, we have shaved how many shots it takes and time it takes to kill for the below weapons against red and orange bar enemies. We want to add that we do not believe we are done with tuning weapon damage in PvE, this is merely a starting point, and we will revisit it in the coming Seasons to make sure everything has a place in the sandbox.
  • Increased the damage of the following weapon types against red and orange bar enemies in PvE:
    • Auto Rifles face steep competition from Submachine Guns (SMGs) within parts of their range, and having a longer possible engagement distance wasn't doing enough to offset it. We don't want Auto Rifles to defeat combatants faster than SMGs, as that would flip the script and invalidate the lower range options instead, but we did feel like we could close the gap substantially.
      • Auto Rifles - 25%
    • Pulse Rifles and Hand Cannons have been considered weaker in harder PvE content for some time, so we wanted to make sure the buff we gave them was substantial, while at the same time keeping them below the lower ranged options in terms of pure lethality. Pulse Rifles have struggled, being less effective than Scout Rifles despite, for the most part, having a less effective range. We also put Sidearms into this group because they similarly lagged in damage output compared to the longer ranged SMGs. At these values, Pulse Rifles should be in a more reasonable spot, Hand Cannons should feel like they pack more of a punch, and Sidearms should fall much better into the "high risk, high reward" category.
      • Pulse Rifles, Hand Cannons, and Sidearms - 20%
    • Scout Rifles - We need to be careful tuning Scout Rifles up too much, because they offer the benefits of very safe engagement ranges paired with unlimited ammo, so making them too strong instantly turns most endgame PvE content into "sit as far away as possible and plink," which we want to avoid. That being said, after the changes to the other weapons, they felt like they were trailing just a little too far behind, so we have moved them up as well.
      • Scout Rifles - 10%
  • SMGs and Bows - We tuned the rest of the primary weapons using these two archetypes as benchmarks, but as mentioned above, we will continue to keep an eye on the primary weapon balance in PvE and may revisit their tuning as needed.
Image Linkimgur

Weapon Archetypes

  • Submachine Guns
    • Aggressive Frame SMGs have been very strong in the PvP meta for the last couple of months, with a handful of outliers taking most of the credit. The IKELOS SMG was something of a mystery to us, as we continually felt, and got reports, that the gun seemed to have much better stability than its stats would indicate it should, compared to other SMGs. Originally, the IKELOS SMG was built back in the Warmind era when we had fewer guidelines on how to keep weapons balanced, and upon doing a deeper investigation we found that some custom tuning had been added to the weapon's scope to give it a recoil reduction effect. For comparison, the recoil reduction tuning was like having an effect nearly equivalent to Zen Moment at max strength, and always active. We have removed that custom tuning, and the recoil should now feel in-line with other SMGs.
      • IKELOS SMG:
        • Removed some tuning in the custom scope causing these weapons to have significantly less recoil than intended. The recoil is now in line with other Aggressive Frame SMGs.
      • We are aware that this change in isolation, while noticeable, is unlikely to put much of a dent in Aggressive Frame SMGs current dominance, so we have a larger change to reduce the damage of the Aggressives sub-family that will release alongside Season 21. The change will be targeted at shifting the resiliency threshold where the gun can achieve its optimal 0.67s Time to Kill (TTK) down to a lower value, to force a more reasonable 0.77s TTK against most players, while also decreasing their forgiveness of missed crits.
  • Fusion Rifle
    • When we last touched Fusion Rifles, Shotguns had seen a big drop in effectiveness, and we were concerned that Rapid-Fire Frame Fusions would rise up to take their place. As such, we preemptively nerfed Rapid-Fires pretty hard. In today's sandbox, this is less of a concern due to the renewed strength of Shotguns following the airborne effectiveness and pellet spread changes, so we have walked back some of the damage nerf we made to Rapid-Fires. This change will push them back to defeating all resilience levels in 7 bolts and give them a decent bump to ease of use.
      • Increased burst damage by 15 (damage per burst goes from 245 to 260, damage per bolt goes from 27.2 to 28.9).
      • Damage in PvE is unchanged.
  • Trace Rifle
    • Trace Rifles are in a bit of a precarious spot in the Crucible. In the right hands, they can kill very quickly from long ranges, even outside of their optimal time to kill (TTK). On the other hand, they can be difficult to use, and they often feel heavily ammo limited if you are not hitting the optimal TTK. We did a lot of experimenting with them for this change, including multiple combinations of damage and crit ratios, and settled on the values below as the highest we could push their damage output before they became frustrating to deal with in Crucible. Interestingly, with damage any higher than this the feeling was that they had a surplus of ammo, especially in 6v6 modes, and could often net 2 kills per Special brick picked up, which was concerning. Once we moved their damage values, they still felt like they needed a little bit more, and we wanted to lean harder into making them feel good to use, so we increased the effect that stability has on reducing flinch at the high end of the stat. We will monitor this change when it goes live and may revisit the ammo situation in a future update if their effectiveness remains low.
      • Increased base damage by 4% (base damage goes from 12 to 12.5).
      • Reduced precision hit multiplier from 1.4x to 1.35x (crit damage goes from 16.8 to 16.9).
      • Increased the effectiveness of stability at reducing flinch by 10% at 100 stat (scales down at lower values).
  • Sniper Rifle
    • Rapid-Fire Frame Sniper Rifles have long struggled to find a place in both the PvP and PvE meta. In PvP, their inability to kill with two body shots puts them on uneven footing with other Snipers, and in PvE their fast RPM but standard inventory sizes mean you constantly feel low on ammo. To address these concerns and differentiate them from other Sniper sub-families, we have reduced their recoil by 50%. This means hitting crits on a boss or Champion in PvE is much easier, and taking rapid follow-up shots in PvP is too. We have also increased their inventory stat by 30%, which should give them a lot more rounds to play with in PvE content.
      • Reduced recoil by 50%.
      • Increased total ammunition (magazine + reserves) by 30%.

Exotic Weapons

  • Final Warning - Final Warning being able to track targets through barricades, while funny in some cases, felt pretty unfair to play against and was not an intended mechanic of the weapon.
    • Can no longer mark targets through Titan Barricades.
  • Tarrabah - This weapon is something we have been keeping an eye on for a while, and with the spotlight being shown on Aggressive Frame SMGs, it felt like Tarrabah has had its time in the sun. When the weapon was introduced, there was substantially less survivability in PvP, and the intention was that it would take nearly two full engagements to get Ravenous Beast active, which made it one of the costliest perk activators we had in game and justified the extreme power it offered. As the sandbox has progressed, however, survivability has increased, and it has become possible for Ravenous Beast to be very close to activating after a single engagement. This has meant that savvy players could purposefully bait or take a small amount of damage (like standing in a grenade's effect) to top off the perk, and then have it active for the second engagement. The increased ease of access has made Ravenous Beast an outlier in today's Crucible, and we were left with the options of reducing the potency of the perk itself or trying to make its activation more difficult, and we decided to work with the latter. This reduction in energy granted from taking damage puts the onus back on the user to deal damage and shifts the balance of the perk back towards a difficult activator that justifies its reward of a potent effect. In addition, we are continuing our mission to address zoom outliers, and this felt like a good time to reduce the zoom of Tarrabah back down to something more in line with the rest of the SMG archetype.
    • Reduced the amount of Ravenous Beast energy generated when taking damage from 3% to 1%.
    • Reduced zoom from 16 to 15.
  • Revision Zero - Fourth Times the Charm (FTTC) working when Revision Zero went into Hunter's Trace is a fun and intended interaction, but it caused some unfortunate issues. Activating it too early while the perk was up caused the weapon to overflow its limited mag size and return to the normal Pulse Rifle mode. We have made a fix so that FTTC can continue to work while Hunter's Trace is active, but it will not be able to grant ammo until all shots have been expended. This means you can still enjoy the 2 free shots provided by the perk as long as you hit all 4 Hunter's Trace rounds without worrying about being kicked out of the mode. In addition, we have buffed the damage of the Hunter's Trace rounds by 25% in PvE, and we have buffed the Häkke Heavy Burst rounds by 75% in PvE. This will now make it more of a tradeoff when choosing between the origin perks, either dealing more damage in the primary mode but charging Hunter's Trace more slowly or dealing less damage but charging the bonus shots more quickly.
    • Fourth Times the Charm will now be reset when entering Hunter's Trace.
      • This will prevent the issue of firing a single shot while in Hunter's Trace and being forcibly returned to Pulse Rifle mode when FTTC activates.
    • Increased PvE damage of the Hunter's Trace rounds by 25%.
    • Increased PvE damage of the Häkke Heavy Burst rounds by 75%.Video Link ####At Season 21 Launch
  • A sweeping rework of weapon hip fire reticles to better display useful information to players (accuracy, aim assist, charge state, Exotic perk state, etc.).
  • The Aggressive Frame SMG nerf.
  • A 10% PvE buff to Sniper Rifle damage.
  • Buffs/adjustments to more than a dozen Exotic weapons, including Graviton Lance and Salvation's Grip.

    In the Future

  • We are going to be taking a look at how zoom interacts with damage fall off, and the base damage fall off ranges of all weapons in general.
  • Zoom, and perks like Rangefinder that manipulate zoom, have become a requirement on several weapon types, either to compete at all in the sandbox, or to allow the weapon to exceed its intended engagement ranges. This has led us to begin to consolidate zoom values on certain weapon archetypes, which removes an important lever that we can use to modify weapon feel, given the effect zoom has on field of view, recoil reduction, and aim assist falloff.
  • We will be investigating decoupling damage falloff from zoom (this would be paired alongside a refresh of the base damage falloff values to compensate), which should allow us to better control the engagement ranges of individual archetypes, while at the same time letting us continue to use zoom as a tuning knob for weapon feel without dramatically changing their performance.

    The Case of the Missing Khvostov, A Peek Behind the Developer Curtain

Cinematics Director James Myers has an answer that many of you have been asking: “Where the heck is the Khvostov weapon seen in cutscenes?!” Funny story about that, we’ll let Myers take this one.
Myers: During the production of Lightfall, a certain story beat was pitched related to reluctantly aiming a weapon, and we quickly realized that we would need to animate that moment much more specifically than we typically handle Guardians pointing weapons in previous scenes. Many players have noticed some of the sillier results in some real-time scenes, even when we avoid extreme poses (like our Guardian holding a Bow at the end of The Witch Queen.) So, I spun up a thread with the studio leads and suggested that we decide on a “default weapon” that we could feature if we ever needed something specific like this. I suggested the Khvostov because it’s the very first weapon every player receives in Destiny. Literally every Guardian has tinkered around with this weapon, so it felt like the right call.
At the same time, new systems were being developed that would feature Guardians (like Commendations), and similarly, there were a lot of visual bugs popping up with certain weapons like Glaives and Bows. The animation team was stretched thin closing on cinematics, and a new set of animations was, unfortunately, something that would cost us other content. Because of that, we made the decision to use the same default logic in the instances where a visual bug would detract from the quality bar we aim to achieve.
Regarding helmets seen in in-engine cinematics, I have seen some folks post screenshots of their Guardians from recent real-time cinematics, and many were helmetless! Something we started doing in Lightfall is respecting the player's choice of helmet or no helmet in real-time scenes, where appropriate (we'll keep your helmet on in the vacuum of space for example). But for the most part, if you choose "hide helmet," you'll see your Guardian's face. And if you don't, you won't unless there's a special exception (I don't want to make that promise too airtight, just in case!). There is one caveat to keep in mind: the Season 20 cinematics were in production before we finalized this plan, so from Season 21 onward this will be consistent!
As a little bonus “sneak peek,” some animators in the film industry were recently discussing how they push animation poses in ridiculous ways to get the framing just right on camera, making for better shot composition and framing. It stirred up some interesting conversation, so we figured we'd show you one of these reframings with an example from the Season 20 intro cinematic. Whatever it takes to get the shot, y’know?

There Will Be Wallpapers

And because you all had to see the hidden horrors of animation right alongside us, here are some freebie wallpapers to enjoy as a return to normalcy. You know, as a treat. Plus, can we just take a moment to drool over the Mara art? Because definitely going to snag that one for my new background.

And that's a wrap on our latest TWAB! This one was pretty weapons-focused, but with so much talk about recent changes, we wanted to spend some time going over what's coming down the pipeline.
Now that our paths must diverge once more, just a friendly reminder to please remember to drink your water, prioritize that self-care, pet all the good puppers out there for me, and always lead with your kindest foot forward. See you on the flip side, friends.

2023.03.30 20:05 Spartawolf Galactic High (Chapter 63)

“Woah!” Jack yelled out as he fell out of bed Luckily he hadn’t been foolish enough to have set Dante up right next to him just in case of any accidents like this.
What stood in front of him holding a tray looked like a collection of rocks, pebbles and dirt vaguely moulded into a humanoid-ish form. Staring at it wide-eyed he levelled his gun at the thing as it slowly motioned to the tea it.had, and began to pour Jack a cup.
“Good morning Jack!” Zayle perked up as they walked in after the hulking thing. “No no no! Please don’t shoot him! He’s really nice and still owes me favours!”
Jack just stared back at the Squa’Kaar with the biggest ‘WTF’ expression on his face, not saying anything as the pile of rubble held out the mug for him to take, which he eventually did after he got the feeling it was staring at him.
“Zayle…” Jack began. “What’s going on?”
“Are you okay halveer?” Zayle asked. “My watcher spirit alerted me that you were starting to awaken so I thought I would make you a hot drink to wake you up! I sent my earth spirit to take it to you while I helped tidy up downstairs with my air spirit!”
“What time is it?” Jack asked with a groan as he got up, taking the mug from the earth spirit and taking a sip and taking care not to flinch from the taste. It was strong and bitter, and it seemed like Zayle had tried to counter that by putting way too much sweetener in it, but there was no way Jack was going to tell them after they were kind enough to go through the effort of making it and bringing it to him.
“It is early morning, I didn’t expect you of all people to awaken for a while yet!” Zayle commented. “Chiyo told me you and Nika probably would be up though. Are you feeling better?”
“Yeah.” Jack lied.
“Oh good!” Zayle perked up. “I hope everyone else does too! Uh…would you like me to get you some clothes to wear?”
“Shit!” Jack cursed as he got to his feet, quickly downing the rest of the drink and putting the mug back on the tray as he quickly went to the pile of clothes on the floor and threw on a thin undershirt and shorts.
“No need to be embarrassed.” Zayle shrugged nonchalantly. “Earth spirits don’t really understand that kind of concept.”
“Uh…” Jack began, staring at the gecko, who scoffed.
“What? I can grow a penis whenever I like, why would I be bothered?” Zayle smiled at Jack with a shrug.
Immediately, Jack spat out the drink still in his mouth in shock, spraying the earth spirit with the milky liquid. If the spirit seemed upset, it didn’t show it.
“What the shit!? Okay, time out.” Jack spoke up after he finished spluttering. “I don’t even know if you’re joking or if you’re serious. That was too much!”
“Sorry!” Zayle covered their mouth to stifle their laugh. “It is true though! My species evolved to do it to deal with population issues but it doesn’t really matter these days. At least it helps with the stupid school uniform policy! Have you ever tried wearing a skirt in a breezy winter? It’s not good!”
“Can’t say I have.” Jack replied with the first genuine chuckle he had in a while. “Is it really that terrible?”
“It’s really bad! My people grew up in warm swamps, but not baking hot like the summers here! That’s when you get horrible chafing with dangly parts! It takes a few months to fully change but usually Rayle and I time it well to match the seasons!”
“Too much information!” Jack snorted with a laugh. “Maybe we can change the topic to where we’ll be heading to pick your stuff up?”
“Sure, but I think Nika might need some help.” Zayle looked to the side, seemingly at nothing. “My watcher spirit is telling me she’s having trouble getting to her feet.”
“Alright, let's not wake anyone up.” Jack decided, looking at Dante with concern. Despite everything that had happened, the ‘dog’ hadn’t woken up from their slumber, and Jack quickly rearranged the blankets so they were better covered, but in a way that allowed everyone to check up on him without disturbing him.
The two headed downstairs, followed awkwardly by the earth spirit with pebbles tapping the wood as it trundled along.
“Morning.” Nika groaned as she stumbled her way to the living room clad in just her sports bra and shorts, her lower half surrounded by some kind of faint smoke that snaked around her legs and tail until she was able to grab a blanket and wrap it around herself. “Thanks for the assist, Zayle.” she sighed as the smoke coalesced and formed a small humanoid shape that stood at attention next to her.
“How are you feeling?” Jack asked the Kizun as Zayle quickly saw another opportunity to be proactively useful in making tea while her spirits awkwardly just stood there.
“Still sore, still stiff.” Nika sighed. “But healing naturally. I won’t let Alora give me a jump start when there could be lives at stake back at the Clan Bharzum compound. We have many friends in medical comas or being put back together for resurrection, and I’ll be damned if I take magical healing over them.”
Jack nodded as he sat on the sofa next to her. “No morning workout for us then?”
Nika rolled her eyes at him. “Careful, I might try a lap around the district even if I have to crawl! I’ve been hurt before but I never get used to just sitting down on the sofa and not doing anything productive. I know many of our friends like to do that and I’m not one to judge but I hate being forced to do nothing else without any choice in the matter.”
“We could find something practical.” Jack considered. “I don’t want to think too hard about homework but the Industrial Vocation bot we were working on was fun!”
“The one with the eight legs you thought up?” Nika grinned. “Yeah we can do that here while the others are still sleeping.”
“I can start making breakfast if you want?” Zayle asked as her earth and air spirits lingered behind her, having not been given tasks to do. “Or if it’s too early I can summon my water spirit to clean the pipes?”
“You should take a break instead and calm down.” Jack smiled. “You’ve done more than enough already and none of us even asked you to! Maybe you can sit down and rest while you tell us about your soon-to-be-ex-landlord instead?”
“The Laird?” Zayle asked. “Paranoid, crazy and power hungry, though nothing like the horrible and powerful enemies I’ve heard you’ve encountered. He wasn’t too terrible in the past but I think ever since his position started to get tenuous he’s been making a bunch of terrible decisions. Originally the security was alright and it was an environment Rayle and I were comfortable with so we stayed there because it was something we could afford while we attended school, but for a while now the dues have kept going up and we get less for it. He’s been bringing in extra thugs that like to try and fine people or intimidate residents into not leaving. That’s why I was hoping to get our things and get out before things get worse!”
“What was your original plan?” Nika asked curiously. “You mentioned before how you and Rayle had it all planned out. Where would you have moved to?”
“We were tempted to sign up to the Red Legion as aspirants. They provide free lodgings and military training after school and we have friends that have already signed up. The benefits are really good if you have magical capabilities, though it does mean we’d be tied to their operations on the Ring. Alternatively Kritch mentioned to Rayle that his family might be in a position soon to accept some tenants! Rayle was really keen on that idea for some reason…”
“Right.” Jack smiled, suspecting some ulterior motive on the part of their Lizta friend. “What kind of security has this Laird got? You mentioned thugs.”
“Security before was a local militia before there were arguments about pay and a bunch of them left. The Laird brought in anyone that could shoot a gun irrespective of their background. Bandits in all but name! Some of the neighbours have reported being mugged or robbed by them, so that’s mainly why I asked you for your kind assistance in the matter. Rayle and I can usually move around and go to the shops without really attracting any attention but moving out certainly would.”
“I get it.” Jack nodded. “A capable group wouldn’t be a tempting target for the bandits so your hope is for them not to harass you to stay.”
“Yes.” Zayle nodded. “I don’t like violence or confrontation but I hate being unsafe or robbed even more! If it is possible to get to the vault where the Laird is keeping the things he takes that his thugs aren’t skimming off then it may be possible to return sentimental items to my former neighbours if they’re able to get out themselves. They’d probably reward us too if we were to do it, and I’d feel more confident making the attempt with you than if it was just myself and Rayle.”
“I can’t guarantee we’ll go for that but it’s something to consider if the opportunity presents itself.” Jack pointed out seriously. “How were you able to pay your way before if you’re a full-time student?”
“My spirits are very utilitarian and Rayle is quite skilled with druidic magic.” Zayle shrugged. “Mainly odd jobs. We’ve volunteered with the Greenwardens before and sometimes we are able to sell byproducts of what we are able to produce which keeps us afloat. We are even able to grow GrainCoin and other AstralCurrencies sometimes which helps keep us in the black, and we’ve learned a bit about trading in the process.”
“Might be a good idea to repeat that to Alora.” Nika pointed out after stretching herself out more on the sofa. “We have a lot of very fertile garden space and an enthusiastic Eladrie that’ll be all over you, and Rayle too once they recover.”
“Yes…” Zayle’s expression drooped at being reminded of Rayle’s condition. If Jack had to guess, the reason for Zayle throwing themselves into chores and jobs was as a coping mechanism to try and forget. It probably wasn’t healthy, but then again, who was he to criticise?
“What’s the district like?” Jack added. “Please don’t leave anything out. If we’re helping you we need to make sure we do so in the right way so we don’t run into any problems.”
“There’s a lot of abandoned and ruined properties. It should be easy to hide and lay low if needed.” Zayle thought. “Oh yeah, lots of boat travel where bridges have been busted. I usually use my spirits but with more people I suppose that might be a problem.”
“Boat travel?” Jack asked in confusion. “What kind of place is this?”
“It’s swamp land suited for my species?” Zayle asked, sounding confused. “Why wouldn’t you need a boat for a place like that? Many islands of buildings amidst the canals, and the best humid environment we can afford to keep us moisturised. It is a large district spread between several factions that may turn into a horrible war, probably the next time the fog builds up.”
“Hmm.” Jack pondered. “Sounds almost like Venice. I went there once but it was packed with other tourists. A bunch of islands connected by even more bridges with the buildings constantly sinking into the ground. It has a lot of history but it’s basically just a tourist trap now.”
“Huh?” Zayle asked, now even more confused. “I have never heard of this…Ven-iss. But yes, several of the buildings sink into the ground by design to create an underground space in certain places. I am pretty sure the vault area has multiple access points with tunnels dug underneath so loot can quickly be taken there and possibly smuggled out. I’ve had watcher spirits follow some of the goons to confirm it.”
“How long does it take for you to normally get to your place when you enter the territory?” Nika asked, trying to get the gecko back on track.
“Just less than half an hour normally, but that is when I utilise my spirits to travel with Rayle, who also helps with their druidic powers.”
“So likely longer.” Jack nodded. “Do you at least have a map?”
Uhh…” Zayle fidgeted around for their commlink, reaching into one of the pockets of their newly-liberated dressing gown from the collection of clothes Jack and Sephy had robbed before bringing it up. “I have the sections of it I frequently use?”
“That’ll be useful.” Nika nodded. “Best wait for Sephy to wake up before we check it out and map a route.”
“Sometimes the thugs gather or patrol in places but I just take an alternative path.” Zayle added. “Even easier if you find or take a boat but there is usually the occasional sentry you need to watch out for, though maybe they’ll be more focused on where the other gangs will be coming from.”
“Something to bear in mind.” Jack noted. “I’ve seen how quiet Sephy’s drones can be, maybe if she has a few hovering overhead we can avoid any trouble outright. However from what you’ve described the militia have a habit of harassing innocent civilians. I’ll tell you now, I won’t stand by and let that happen if they try something like that around me. How strong are they if things go to shit?”
“There were several infrequent patrols between two to five guards last time I was there.” Zayle recalled as she filled another teapot and offered everyone drinks, which both Jack and Nika happily took. “Though many times they were drunk or high on something and didn’t really do much.”
“Maybe just keeping up appearances.” Nika reasoned. “Or just taking an easy job for easy pay before their employer either dies or cuts and runs with what they have. If they don’t live in the community they don’t have any motivation to act like proper guards.”
“They may also get the idea to take it for themselves if they’re able to and the Laird isn’t able to rein them in.” Jack speculated. “He seems like a poor leader, though I can’t tell if it’s from malice or just plain stupidity. How did he claim the territory in the first place?”
“Both malice and stupidity I think.” Zayle shrugged. “And he was next in the chain of command when the previous Laird and her chosen successor both apparently died to a Zorn raid. I think he was a clerk or a tax collector or something.”
“Makes sense why he’s not the best overall leader then.” Jack replied. “Okay. It sounds like a stealthy approach to your place will work as long as we detect and react to potential encounters quickly to avoid them, which will be very doable if we at the very least have Sephy and Chiyo along for the ride. Based on what you’ve told me we may be able to go today depending on how the others are feeling. It’s a risk but the situation over there could be played to our advantage if the militia is looking a certain way and we can sneak in and out right under their noses.”
“I agree.” Nika nodded with a grin. “You have a good mind for tactics.”
“Yeah.” Jack nodded in thought. “My main concern however is for your neighbours who haven’t left yet who may be caught in the storm. Some might be able to get out but there may also be those that are vulnerable and can’t leave unaided. The vault is optional, and I imagine Sephy would agree with you Zayle that we should try and hit it, but that might be a risk too far. We can entertain that idea when we get there, only if things go well.
“That’s fair.” Zayle conceded. “We can only do what we can, but we must be realistic about what we can do. We cannot save everyone over there.”
“We can only do our best.” Jack agreed. “Also I think I’m ready for breakfast now…”
Zayle quickly got to their feet, eager to throw herself into another task but Jack shook his head.
“No Zayle, you’ve already done a lot so sit down. I’m cooking, you need to take a chill pill. Nika, what do we have in stock?”
Jack admittedly had a limited number of recipes he could cook, but his father had decided he should know basic cooking skills at his age, and had Jack helping him with a few weekend family breakfasts they’d do to give his mother a break. Fortunately he confirmed that Zayle and Vanya were able to eat the simple meal he had planned as he counted several eggs, some prepared bacon-like equivalent they had that was suitable for nearly every species and the basic staples to make pancakes. He had no idea if it was officially called a Canadian or American breakfast or not and it didn’t really bother him. All Jack knew was that it was an easy dish to do for multiple people and he didn’t know many other recipes he could do. It would be the second morning in a row he would be making pancakes, so he resolved to try and find other simple recipes he would be able to learn. He knew he had a cooking class at school next week with Chiyo, so maybe he’d pick something up there or add a cookery book to the house shopping list?
As the smells of the hearty food wafted throughout the house, the others slowly appeared. Chiyo was first, having already been awake and meditating in the basement, lazily floating upwards and plonking herself on the sofa without too many words, except that the others that were able to were waking up, she was hungry and she couldn’t wait to eat what was cooking!
Sephy and Alora eventually joined them, with Nika and Zayle clueing them in on what their likely plans would be for recovering Rayle and Zayle’s belongings.
“I could come along, but....” Alora began, though Nika shook her head and countered. “We’ve already discussed it. You know Clan Bharzum will need medics and I know how serious you are about your healer’s oath. I think a smaller group would be best for remaining undetected anyway, and even if things do get bad the opposition isn’t going to be anything near the Pallid Pit or the Klown attacks, which Sephy, Jack and Chiyo can handle. As much as I hate to say it I can’t come myself, but I can help coordinate from here via comms and keep an eye on Dante and Vanya at the same time.”
“Alright.” Alora nodded and finally agreed. “Shoot me a message when you head out. How long do you expect to be?”
“It’s a few hours travel from here to my place.” Zayle noted. “Though I calculate that by my usual route, I expect it to take longer to get there safely and silently. Plus we need to get my stuff but I know what I will do for that.”
“So let’s just say a few hours, assuming all goes well.” Jack shrugged. “How do you plan on getting the stuff out then?”
“Rayle and I managed to bind a powerful earth spirit that is currently residing there as part of our current Lodge, along with a few other more powerful ones.” Zayle grinned, looking proud. “It’ll be able to handle getting the stuff out of the district, and I’ll have the other spirits accompanying me until I can use them for something or need to dismiss them once I dispel the Lodge for good, since those ones are too powerful to bind to my astral field. I’ll need to recover as many of the reagents we used in the original construction as possible in order to more quickly rebuild here once we find a suitable space.”
Sephy, how many drones do you have available? Chiyo asked the Skritta, who shrugged.
“I can bring a few more than I did for the Oracle Run but I don’t want to take my whole stack. I was thinking of having a few camouflage observer drones hovering above nearby so we can see any danger before it sees us.” Sephy reasoned. “I don’t have any capable of shifting stuff but if you say your earth spirit at your home can do it, that’s on you.”
And Chiyo, you should be able to detect others lying in wait?” Jack asked.
Yes, unless they purposefully shield themselves as Svaartal did on our way back from the Oracle. However since we’re not expected, it’s extremely unlikely we’ll run into that problem.
“Alright, then I guess I won’t need to be too worried if I offer my healing to Clan Bharzum.” Alora sighed. “I’ll head off as soon as I can then but I would like it if you kept me updated. I’ve got to say I’m surprised you’re taking being sidelined as well as you are Nika, it really isn’t like you.”
“That’s because I’m confident they can pull it off and Jack will keep everyone safe.” The Kizun shrugged. “Just don’t be too tempted to go for the vault if it’s too great a risk.”
“We’ll at least take a look and make sure we have a plan.” Jack shrugged. “From the sounds of it the Laird’s position is tenuous at best so if we don’t make the attempt others probably will, but if we do it we make sure we sort out anything else. If not, there’s apparently abandoned properties around that you can satisfy your kleptomania with Sephy.”
“I take offence to being called that!” Sephy replied in mock horror. “I am merely an entrepreneur seeking opportunities!”
“Don’t be in a rush to go though.” Alora warned. “I don’t want Vanya waking up and finding barely anyone here before we’ve explained what we’re planning for today.”
She’ll probably be another hour before she wakes. Chiyo informed her, and Alora simply nodded at that information in acknowledgement.
“We’re not in a rush.” Jack confirmed. “I think most of us are still tired so we’ll go once we’ve eaten and woken up a bit more. Maybe we can get there when it starts to get dark since I know Sephy’s drones will still be able to see anyway?”
“Good plan.” Nika nodded. “Although…Zayle, how does militia activity differ from day to night?”
“Uh…” Zayle thought. “The Laird wants more guards patrolling at night but in practice it doesn’t differ that much. It might actually be better since Rayle and I have seen guards goofing off when they think nobody is watching.”
“Alright, sounds good.” Jack nodded. “We’ll rest up and make our move in a few hours. Get ready.”
Another day, another mission! (Got to go for a side quest at some point!)

2023.03.30 20:05 naaawanawa Please please help out.

An orphanage in recently reached out to me and asked for help with foodstuff and baby diapers. Through family and friends, I was able to raise money for them but it’s just not enough. Other orphanages and people both in the United States and Ghana are asking for support. I decided to create a GoFundMe to help out. No amount is too small and thank you for taking the time to read and share.

2023.03.30 20:04 Adventurous-Board165 Golfing with our baby

I’ll post this in dadit as well, but I thought there might be some good opinions here as well.
For context my wife and I were really enjoying golfing together before and while pregnant. It was our little piece of heaven where we could turn off and spend a few hours enjoying each others company.
Now that baby (5 months) is here and golf season is right around the corner, we have consoled ourselves to never really golfing together in the near future.
That said….
I have seen a bunch of videos of parents golfing with their toddlers/sub toddlers, either using a modified stroller or making space in the golf cart. We are aware of the risks, but in 10 years I haven’t really had to worry about errant balls.
I’m wondering if the reddit world has any experience in the practicality of this. We would probably start with a short par 3, 9 hole course to test and see how we go from there. Do golf courses actually allow this? Is it practical? I get that if things go sideways is have to pull the pin and I’d be more then fine.

2023.03.30 20:03 Ok_Bullfrog_8491 Some Oddities in NoME – Celegorm and Caranthir, and Maedhros and Maglor

I came across two odd passages concerning the Sons of Fëanor in NoME that seem to contradict some fundamental elements of their characters and stories in the First Age.
Caranthir and Curufin in Nargothrond
In the chapter “The Founding of Nargothrond”, from 1969, it’s explicitly said that Caranthir and Curufin fled to Nargothrond after the Dagor Bragollach: “As when Curufin and Caranthir dwelt in the shelter of Nargothrond after the defeat of the Elves by Morgoth in the North.” (NoME, p. 304)
This is highly strange. The for nearly fifty years, it was Celegorm and Curufin who had been associated with Nargothrond, first as founders (cf HoME III, p. 65, with Christopher Tolkien’s commentary on p. 85–86). The element of Celegorm and Curufin in Nargothrond, with their usurpation of Finrod and capture of Lúthien, as well the story that Huan deserts Celegorm in favour of Lúthien, is a constant throughout Tolkien’s Legendarium writings: it’s in the Lay (cf HoME III, p. 216–217, 236–241), it’s in the Sketch (HoME IV, p. 23–27), it’s in the Quenta (HoME IV, p. 106, 109–110), it’s in the The Earliest Annals of Beleriand (HoME IV, p. 299–300), it’s in The Later Annals of Beleriand (HoME V, p. 132–133, 147), it’s in the Quenta (HoME V, p. 283), and it’s in The Grey Annals (HoME XI, p. 53–54, 62, 65–67).
And it has to be Celegorm in Nargothrond for the stories of Finrod’s quest with Beren and the capture of Lúthien to work: unmarried Celegorm (unlike Curufin and Caranthir, HoME XII, p. 318) who is such a powerful orator and persuasive personality, so much so that his skill as a speaker is compared to Fëanor’s – “Many wild and potent words he spoke,/and as before in Tûn awoke/his father’s voice their hearts to fire” (HoME III, p. 217) – the exact opposite of morose Caranthir who’s far more likely to explode in rage than to awake fire in the hearts of the people of Nargothrond with his speeches!
Maglor and the Eagles
In the chapter “Manwë’s Ban”, written in the last year of Tolkien’s life (NoME, p. 306), we are told this about the Eagles: “Their intervention in the story of Maelor, in the duel of Fingolfin and Melkor, in the rescue of Beren and Lúthien is well known.” (NoME, p. 308)
Of course the interventions of the Eagles in the stories of Fingolfin’s duel with Morgoth and the escape of Beren and Lúthien from Angband are well known.
But just what does “their intervention in the story of Maelor” refer to? Maglor (Maelor is a variant of Maglor, NoME, p. 309, fn. 6) is never associated with the Eagles in any other text that I’m aware of. But there is one Son of Fëanor who is closely associated with Thorondor: Maedhros.
The story of Fingon rescuing Maedhros from Thangorodrim with Thorondor’s help is very old, first appearing in the Sketch (HoME IV, p. 23), and a pivotal moment in the story of the Silmarillion: without Fingon’s rescue of Maedhros, the eldest Son of Fëanor and the only one with the authority to abdicate in favour of Fingolfin, the story of the Silmarillion would have been very different. The story of Fingon’s rescue of Maedhros – which I wrote in depth about recently – and the healing of the feud between the two hosts of the Noldor is as much of a constant as the story of Celegorm and Curufin in Nargothrond: it’s in the Sketch (HoME IV, p. 23), it’s in the Quenta (HoME IV, p. 102), it’s in the The Earliest Annals of Beleriand (HoME IV, p. 295), it’s in The Later Annals of Beleriand (HoME V, p. 126), it’s in the Quenta (HoME V, p. 251), and it’s in The Grey Annals (HoME XI, p. 31–32).
This story wouldn’t work if Fingon rescued Maglor: apart from it not being clear why Maglor, Fëanor’s second son, would be on Thangorodrim in the first place, Maglor being on Thangorodrim removes both of Fingon’s motivations for his daring rescue mission: his hope to heal the feud, which only works because he saved the one Son of Fëanor with the authority and strength of personality to actually do this, and their “ancient friendship” that “stung his heart” (The Silmarillion, p. 124).
Further Thoughts
I cannot decide which of the oddities is odder: Caranthir in Nargothrond of Maglor on Thangorodrim. What happened here? Are we to assume that in these texts, Celegorm and Maedhros somehow don’t exist, and that their roles in the story were taken by Caranthir and Maglor?

2023.03.30 20:02 Adventurous-Board165 Golfing with your littles

I’ll post this in golf as well, but I thought there might be some good opinions here as well.
For context my wife and I were really enjoying golfing together before and while pregnant. It was our little piece of heaven where we could turn off and spend a few hours enjoying each others company.
Now that baby (5 months) is here and golf season is right around the corner, we have consoled ourselves to never really golfing together in the near future.
That said….
I have seen a bunch of videos of parents golfing with their toddlers/sub toddlers, either using a modified stroller or making space in the golf cart. We are aware of the risks, but in 10 years I haven’t really had to worry about errant balls.
I’m wondering if the reddit world has any experience in the practicality of this. We would probably start with a short par 3, 9 hole course to test and see how we go from there. Do golf courses actually allow this? Is it practical? I get that if things go sideways is have to pull the pin and I’d be more then fine.
Let me know if you have done this. How did it work. Would you do it again? How old was your baby? Did you worry about wild balls? How did you manage the risk?

How to return the mobilized: a universal leaflet for mailboxes. Distribute among the residents of your Housing Office!
How to return the mobilized: a universal leaflet for mailboxes. Distribute among the residents of your Housing Office!
A huge number of those forcibly mobilized by the Putin regime are now in units and at the front in Ukraine. Returning from there is very difficult - but still possible. However, there is little information on how to do this, and relatives of military personnel often do not know what to do, even if they are ready to fight for their sons and husbands.
Therefore, we have created the most complete leaflet on how to act for those whose loved ones were taken to the front. There is also a list of departments where to send complaints, and contacts of human rights activists who can help, and even detailed instructions from the “Call for Conscience” (https:// t . me/peaceplea) on how to leave the military unit, describing the risks .
You can print the leaflet on a home printer (which, by the way, you can buy (https:// t . me/vesna_democrat/4425) for a small fee, for example, on Avito), from friends or at a print shop you trust. It is best to distribute it through mailboxes - however, it is extremely important to follow security rules.

Как вернуть мобилизованных: универсальная листовка для почтовых ящиков. Распространите среди жильцов вашего ЖЭКа!
Огромное количество насильно мобилизованных путинским режимом сейчас находятся в частях и на фронте в Украине. Вернуться оттуда очень сложно — но всё же возможно. Однако информации о том, как это сделать, мало, и родственники военнослужащих зачастую не знают, что им делать, даже если готовы бороться за своих сыновей и мужей.
Поэтому мы создали максимально полную листовку о том, как действовать тем, чьих близких забрали на фронт. Там есть и список ведомств, куда направлять жалобы, и контакты правозащитников, которые могут помочь, и даже подробная инструкция от «Призыва к совести» (https:// t . me/peaceplea)о том, как военнослужащему покинуть часть, с описанием рисков.
Вы можете напечатать листовку на домашнем принтере (его, кстати, можно купить (https:// t . me/vesna_democrat/4425) за небольшую плату, например, на Avito), у друзей или в типографии, которой доверяете. Распространять её лучше всего по почтовым ящикам — однако крайне важно соблюдать правила безопасности.

Информируйте, спасайте жизни:

📌 Скачать листовки: Proton Drive (https:// drive . proton . me/urls/2JA6QXKT9W#63k12wZEEFAK) и Google Drive

2023.03.30 20:01 cptahab36 PC for physics PhD student, casual gamer

**What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.**

Primarily using for coding and machine and deep learning, Jupyter Notebook and VS Code. Also getting more into gaming, enjoying Stardew Valley and Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion right now. Interested in getting something that can also handle something like Elden Ring on medium settings.

**What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?**


**When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.**

May-ish (understand that pricing may change between now and then)

**What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc\)**

Just the tower and OS. Monitokeyboard/mouse etc. are set.

**Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?**

PA, near a Microcenter

**If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.**


**Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?**


**Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)**

I will want at least 16GB RAM if not more in order to handle machine learning algorithms.

**Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?**

Would prefer to be a small tower, portable and ideally without flashy lights.

**Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?**

Planning on using Linux so all good there.

**Extra info or particulars:**
Not quite sure on what other kinds of hardware might help with running large-scale simulations more quickly besides RAM, but anything that would help with that would be appreciated!

2023.03.30 20:01 Sorry_4_Existing Received 1500+ likes in one night

I have been on okc since the start of February this year (about two months). I did pay for premium because I was wanted to see my likes and intros, and also to set dealbreakers.
I usually get around 4-5 likes/intros from within my city daily. About a week ago, the app glitched for me and I received a backlog of over 1500 likes overnight, all from the US and Canada, in or near the city I live. Around 5-10% of these had intro messages. I could tell many of these intro messages were from over a month ago as I regularly update my profile.
I’ve seen many other posts on here saying the app’s glitchy or that intros don’t show up. This is frustrating because it means that likes or intros that I or other people send out might not even be seen by the person receiving them.
(For anyone curious, my stats are 26F, decently attractive or at least have some good photos I think, in a large-ish city in Canada, no kids, filled in my profile in detail, about 400 total questions answered, 100 questions public.)

2023.03.30 20:01 CartographerNo8846 32 [M4F] #Atlanta - taking applications for a spring fling

What I'm looking for is someone who wants to give/receive good morning/good night texts. Someone who understands that life gets in the way as well. Someone between the ages of 18-50 who wants to get to know me and create that spark. You can be located anywhere, but near the state of Georgia is preferable as it means we may eventually be able to meet up...but I have done this with people as far out as Europe and it was a lot of fun there too. Hopefully you can carry on a conversation, about anything is good. I do enjoy most things marvel/disney, science, sports, history, pretty much most nerd culture really...and am always down to learn new things.
I'm a dad to 2 wonderful kids and they take up most of my time as it is currently, but staggered schedules with the wife means I am free to communicate for most of the day. I hate leaving people on read, won't ghost you, and will probably make you accidentally laugh out loud during the first week or two. I do enjoy being outdoors or indoors...I'm happy either way. I'm a hell of a cook, I just moved back down to the area recently as I was up north for a while. I am emotionally available as I tend to find that it's hard to not develop some sort of feeling doing all of this.
I do hope to hear from you, otherwise best of luck in your search and thanks for reading.
