Unlike your common pop-up stores, a website or an app does not have an opening or a closing time. They are functional round the clock. This means that your business is not limited to a particular time zone which allows you to function globally. The management costs of an app or website are comparatively less compared to that of physical labor. Hence it helps you to cut down and save a lot of capital in terms of labor. Now that we know the various advantages of having an online presence, let us get into the best cross platform app development framework for your application in 2023. Keep on reading to find out what they are!

Why Do You Need a Cross-platform Framework?

These days all mobile app development companies are focusing on investing in a cross-platform app development framework. There are many reasons to do this. The main reason is that it saves time on development. The app developers can now cut down on development time by writing code that is functional on windows, iOS as well as android. The second reason is that it helps to reach more audiences. The more target audience you are able to connect the more profits you can make from this app. It helps to maintain the budget that is assigned for this project and retain the functionalities chosen by Cross-platform app developers.

Best Cross-platform App Development Frameworks

Now that we know the advantages of using cross-platform networks, let us now look into which cross-platform app development frameworks you should consider for your next project. The list of cross-platform app development frameworks is as follows:

1) Flutter

Flutter is one of the most common development environments available in the market. It is free to use and easy to install into the system. It is also very cost-effective which makes it the top choice of mobile app development companies. According to statistics 43% of app developers still use flutter for their projects. It consists of its very own software development kit which eases the task of the app developers. This helps you to build responsive websites and mobile applications with ease as you need not start the whole coding from scratch. According to surveys, it is the top-rated framework in the past year. Some of the famous apps built with this framework are postmuse and google ads. There are several advantages of using flutter which include the fact that they are extremely easy to debug.

2) Ionic

This not so common framework is still one of the best out there. hire dedicated developers that consider it to be an underdog. It is an open-source platform and does not have an installation charge. The first version was launched in November 2013. It is famous because of the mobile software development kit it offers to app developers. It can be used for creating both mobile and desktop applications. Some famous apps built with this framework are Diesel and Honeyfi. The advantage of using ionic is that it is highly compatible with other frameworks. It has a number of predefined classes which are easy to inculcate within the projects.

3) React Native

React Native is one of the most famous and loved platforms of all time. There are various reasons why app developers still prefer to use it. The first is that it includes functionalities of JS. This means that you can operate problems in real life and get solutions to them. It also has a huge community to support your learning process and help you in case you get stuck anywhere during the project. It is mostly used for making mobile apps and is the top choice of mobile app development companies. You can also add additional plugins to help expand the functionalities of the application you are working on. Famous apps like Instagram, Skype, Facebook, and Walmart are made using this framework. The advantages of using react are as follows:

4) Node.js

This is another open-source platform that is extremely easy to install. Developed in 2009 it is still the most preferred platform by top app development companies. This is due to the vast functionalities it has to offer. As the name suggests it has various JS libraries that can be easily inculcated within the project that you are working on. Some famous apps built using node are NetFlix, Uber, Yahoo, and Mozilla. The main advantage of using node is that it is highly scalable. Apart from this, it is extremely easy to learn for new learners. The only drawback perhaps is that it uses CPU extensively.


There are many frameworks that are available to app developers. But despite this, top app development companies still prefer the ones that are cross-platform app development frameworks. This is because it allows the app to run on multiple platforms without starting the code from scratch. Most of the apps mentioned above also have a huge community to help the users get help in case they get stuck in the process of development. Apart from this, it also helps to cut down the cost of the company individually coding the app for each and every platform. This is the reason for their popularity.

2023.03.21 12:35 Resident_Ad_6685 Rx6400 intermittent fans? Any way to control it?

I have z240 SFF I’m building for my son and I to do some basic gaming. It has a i7 7700, 16gb ddr4, 500gp ssd, and rx 6400. It looks like they do not support fan control on this gpu which makes no sense. There has to be a way! The GPU will get 100+ deg and the fans not even running. Any ideas? Also does anyone know if the pc fans can be controlled via bios on this settup as well? Thanks!

2023.03.21 12:33 PutridBite Last of the Defenders - Ch 27

Welcome new readers. Please start with chapter one
It took hours. Allah realized the sun was walking away when they finally stepped out of the great quorum hall. Ada’key’hamda and Allah’hem’nrah walked to either side of Li, a group of elders and tradesmen flocking behind. They carried charcoal and papers, hastily drawn maps and long scrolls of lists--names of the future displaced, materials to be salvaged, and more workers than she could count--as they jostled to be heard over each other.
Allah glanced over her shoulder as the wide double doors began to close, ears twitching frustratingly at Marn’charlie’weh who stood on the dais still, amber eyes glowing with barely contained fury. She had been the most vocal of the group surrounding her now, the Detractors Allah called them in her mind. Most of their arguments had been weighed and addressed--even bringing forth solutions to unforeseen problems as the idea of extending the roads had progressed from Li’s ultimatum into cooperative planning.
Both sides had compromised. The southern Smithhall and much more of the buildings between the outpost and the outer wall would be torn down. The proposed road to the north would be almost doubled in width too, to accommodate the increase in traffic. More importantly, to Allah’s way of thinking, were the inclusion of U’knock work crews into Li’s plan. Her people would oversee the construction of the roads and tearing down the city’s outer wall to make rapidly usable materials.
It had been that last point that nearly set Allah’hem’nrah and Marn’charlie’weh to blows. This had only been the second quorum she had been honored to sit in, neither of them as a member, but the vociferousness and vitriol that passed from mouth to ear had startled her.
“You claim a need to protect our people!” Allah could still remember Marn’charlie’weh shout. It had woken her from her dozing. “And with the other paw you rip down the very walls that shelter us! Holes in the inner ring? Dismantling the outer? Will you take all of our warrior caste with you to fight the bullies too? If they are bullies!”
Li had risen from the floor to confront the black elder, Marn’charlie’weh almost twice the height of the human even then, but a spotted paw thrust between them and Allah’hem’nrah walked to block her.
“I will not be shamed,” she roared, the only time the stalwart pride mother raised her voice, “by this council as to cower and hide while a cub fights for our lives!”
She had pointed to Allah who, at the time, was shamelessly curled up on a cushion. The cub, roused from her dozing, sat up, licked a forepaw and made a show of grooming her fur. It was not Allah’s fault she had fallen asleep; they would not stop talking! On and on they went, arguing over the most minute details only to circle back on a once settled matter and point out how doing one thing would somehow upset two others. Even when it did not. Especially when it did not!
“The warriors will fight in this war!” and the proclamation from Allah’hem’nrah had elicited a scattered cheer from half the quorum.
Li had spent much of the quorum kneeling on a Nameday cushion--anything larger than the small pad used to carry kits to the quorum when they opened their eyes would have swallowed her--sipping water from a clay cup and only put in suggestions when directly asked. Which became less and less frequent as the day dragged on toward night. Allah only realized how long they had been there when Jung reminded her to take her pill!
“I think,” Li had said, rising from her cushion and stretching, “we’ve settled what we can in one day.” Allah rose to follow, eager to be away from these screaming, argumentative adults. “If you have something of substance to add, I’ll be outside the south gate at sunrise,” and the last of her words had a hint of warning, “about an hour before the first tank is scheduled to roll out.”
With that, Li rose, bowed to the throne dais, and strode purposely from the great hall.
And now they walked, not as unwelcomed outlanders who should be chased off, but as people of importance whose presence was harkened by quorum members begging attention.
Or, at the least, Li did. Allah found herself carefully shuffled further and further away from her friend, carefully avoiding elders who jostled past her and ever more dangerously close to the taser belt’s kiss. They did not seem to care, even knowing what the belt could do after Li explained its workings and Guard Captain Fen’ja--belatedly arrived, washed and no longer twitching--had confirmed.
Perhaps, Allah considered, another demonstration was in order. Let one brush up against her? And through a wall? She set such petty thoughts aside. These people were preparing as if for a great storm coming to the land. Shoring up the city for a blizzard named Li.
And the bully horde that followed.
Allah contented herself with being persistently pushed back. If she could contribute, she would try. What she was asked, she would answer. And she would not fault Li. Her friend had been as good as her word and as they stepped outside the cub saw a scribe carrying a stack of posters in her paws, could hear a crier chant “Fey’arna of Hada’neha is requested and required to make his presence known to the nearest city guard. A reward is offered for his safe return.” Surely her father would be found soon, news of him at the least and Allah would go to him.
But for now, Allah had made a promise to Li. She would stand beside her friend…if these quorum members ever got out of the way…
Allah busied her eyes and ears in learning this new place. The smell was only U’knock, a packed down scent of many bodies forced together. It reminded her of the mob. Even as the sun was setting behind the tall buildings the street was alive. Tradeswomen and males carried their goods, families shopped at stalls and cubs ran in play or just from the joy of slipping a father’s leash for a time. The buildings were all taller than any hut, packed into squares and high roofed rectangles. Only the doors and the largest structures were domed. Even the glass in the new windows had straight, with sharp unnatural edges.
That was the word Umati’clam conjured to her: unnatural. Even with so many--because there were so many--of her people packed within, Allah felt more and more like a stranger in these confines. How long had she dreamed of walking the fabled city streets? Now she would give up her tail to curl up on her cushion in front of the fireplace, claw the rough burlap and kneed the straw inside to lay her head down and rest. To be home and safe again.
With her fa.
She was not expecting guards when they reached the wall. Four of the metal humans stepped outside the bubble as it popped, speaking in Demeter’s voice.
“Stand away from the entrance,” they said as one, raising black bowless Com’cha with those deadly tubes in their place. “This is your only warning.”
“I’ll do what I can,” Li said by way of apology as the throng of quorum members receded slowly from the opening wall, “but our timetable is going to be tight. Remember Allah’hem’nrah,” she continued, motioning Allah to step forward, “I want at least two level headed warriors per village. These people are not beggars or simply displaced. And they may be vital to rebuilding your home.”
“I do not see how,” the spotted warrior stepped back as Allah stepped closer, “but we will do as you command, Defender.”
“Uh uh,” Li admonished, wagging a finger at the massive U’knock.
“Li,” Allah’hem’nrah corrected, her lips tightening.
Li gestured to Allah again and the two stepped through.
“Could not your ambassador,” Ada’key’hamda called but did not step past the robot guards, gray fur bristling as the first night wind chilled her, “stay with us longer, Friend Li? We still have questions she might be uniquely capable of answering.”
Li and Allah both turned back, the human grinning with a light bow. “That holds true for me too,” the human said softly. “Unfortunately, Allah’s duties at the moment will be keeping her close to me. Any questions can be relayed through these droids,” she gestured to the armed machines. “They can relay any pertinent queries to Jung or myself through Demeter.”
The wall began to seal itself and Allah’hem’nrah raised one paw in the air, waving it back and forth. “Gud B’eye!” the spotted warrior called.
“Bài bài,” Li wiggled her fingers and the massive U’knock chuffed. As the hole in the wall sealed, the sounds of the city silenced. Allah looked up to see the bubble shimmer in place.
Li slumped her shoulders, stretched and yawned. “Now that’s over with,” she said tiredly, “you want something to eat?”
“I am honored to share your table again,” Allah nodded a bow of thanks as Li turned toward the spire, “but what ‘other’ duties do I have?”
“Mostly?” Li winked as she glanced over her shoulder, “Staying clear of Ada’key’hamda. And Marn’charlie’weh, for that matter.” The human frowned at the blank expression on Allah’s face. “Don’t get me wrong, I like that old gray ‘māo’,” Jung translated the word as a subspecies of Earth native animals with an image that explained much of Li’s previous jibes, “but I don’t trust her any further than I can throw her. Or Allah’hem’nrah if it comes to it. Not fully.”
“Why not?” Allah turned back to the closed wall gate. The pair had quickly become the most vocal supporters of Li’s side during the quorum. “They seemed to trust you.”
“Allah’hem’nrah does,” Li confessed, “or at least she believes me a ‘defender’ and understands the threat the swarmers pose. Sounds like she was breastfed war stories as a kit,” Li scratched her head, combing her hair with her fingers, “but she’s gonna do what she thinks is best for her people. And that might not be what's best for the U’knock. Or winning this war.”
Allah considered this. She wanted to say an honored elder would not be so dishonest but…Ana’nut’hana’s betrayal of her father…their exile reminded the cub that no matter how unified the U’knock love of Defenders and hate for bullies was supposed to be, a shallow cup could not hold deep water. If her own mayor could do such to her and Fey’arna then what were strangers capable of?
“And Ada’key’hamda?” she asked with interest. They had passed the landing pad and rapidly closed on the doors to the spire.
“That woman?” Li grinned lopsidedly as the double doors whooshed open, “is what my people call a ‘kingmaker’,” she waved away Allah’s questions, “it means she is a pure blood politician; shrewd and devious. She only sided with us because she knew where the winds were blowing.”
“I hope,” Allah confided, stepping into the noisy chaos of the garage, “that you are wrong.” Her voice rose to a shout above the hissing, clanging commotion.
“I hope I’m not!” Li answered as they hurried past the noisy room and into the hallway. Once the noise of work had died to a dull den she explained. “We’re going to need somebody that conniving on our side to keep Marn’charlie’weh in check. Um…at bay.”
“Jung explained chess,” Allah answered the unspoken question. “And go.”
“Gooood!” Li’s smile must have been more predatory than intended, Allah assumed, as the human showed her teeth. “I’ve got a board in my quarters aboard the Stardancer. Fancy a game when he gets back?”
“I would rather know,” Allah nodded at the offer, “why you need two warriors to travel to the villages.”
“Ah,” Li turned at a crossroads in the hallway, then looked up “Demeter, where’s the nearest mess hall?”
The pleasant voice had returned as a blue beam illuminated. “Please follow the indicated footpath!” Li quickly strode onward.
“Is there any food available for carbon based consumption?”
There was no response as Li and Allah followed the glowing blue line. “Demeter, is there any food available for carbon based consumption?”
“Stores are restocked from the garden every fifty years, cooked and freeze dried for long term access! We have a selection of prepackaged meals ready to eat! Just add hot water and--”
“Demeter,” Allah interrupted as they entered a large room filled with long beaches and tables, “Please be quiet.” Then, to Li she said “You are avoiding my question.”
“I wasn’t avoiding,” Li said in a scolding tone, “I was stalling. There’s a difference. Demeter? Where’s the food!?!”
“Li,” Allah’s tone was stern and pleading at the same time, “Why?”
The human stopped in the center of the room, shoulders slumping. “I kinda wished you’d’ve been awake for that part. It didn’t go over too well with the quorum either.”
“Stop stalling,” Allah admonished, “What is wrong?”
“Allah,” Li stood in the center of the room, raised and then lowered her hands. “Allah,“ she said, “I need you to prepare yourself. What happened last night was only the opening salvo. Things are going to get worse. A lot worse before we’re done here.”
“The U’knock are accustomed to hardship,” Allah straightened. “We will persevere.“
Li shook her head. “That’s not what I meant. I know your people are strong. I know they’re proud, and I believe they will fight for their home. But are they willing to leave their lives behind to do it?”
“Leave?” Allah pursed her lips and thought. “Why would we need to leave their lives?“
“We don’t have a full planetary shield around this rock,” Li answered. “The safest place for them is going to be in Umati’clam. They’ll have to relocate. All of the villages will have to relocate.
“And,” from the expression on the human’s face, the news she gave was worse than it sounded when she said “Some of them might not make it.”

• Starting the Practice At the beginning of the game, the player would create their counseling practice, including choosing a name, designing a logo, and selecting the location. The player would start with a small office space, basic furniture, and limited resources.
• Hiring Staff The player would have to hire a team of counselors and support staff to help run the practice. Each staff member would have different skills, experience, and specialties, and the player would need to balance their strengths and weaknesses to provide the best services to clients. The player would also need to manage staff salaries, training, and morale to keep the team happy and motivated.
• Attracting Clients The player would need to attract clients by advertising their services and building a positive reputation in the community.

• Expanding the Practice As the player grows their practice, they would have the opportunity to expand their office space, hire additional staff, and offer new services. The player could also invest in marketing and advertising to attract more clients and increase revenue.
• Achieving Goals The player would have to achieve certain goals to progress to the next level of the game. Goals could include achieving a certain number of clients, hiring a certain number of staff members, or reaching a specific revenue goal.
Overall, "Counselor Coordinator" would be an engaging and educational mobile game that would help players learn about managing a counseling organisation while having fun. It could be a good introduction to removing the stigma of mental health to a wider and potentially you get audience.

2023.03.21 12:21 indyarchyguy Suggest Building Owner Support for Revit? AutoCAD?

I have a client that would like to open both AutoCAD and Revit files (althought if push came to shove, it could just be Revit). They are in the construction department for a developer. I originally told them they should just buy BlueBeam and use the PDF files. However, they want the ability to make a few changes to tenant suites, etc. that they can then provide for smaller projects, keep record of AHU's, lighting, etc. that are in each space, amongst other things.
They intend to train 1-2 employees to use this software/app in order to accomplish what they need. I have been out of the actual game so long that I am unsure which is the best route for them to go. I only use BlueBeam and even then, I do not use the CAD version (I am not even sure it will be able to open Revit).
What apps/software/SAAS would you recommend? They are willing to pay for it...not looking for free or workaround. Thanks!

2023.03.21 12:18 yonom2021 $ARB and $GMX Fundamental Analysis

Arbitrum's native token, ARB, is a governance token that will be used for protocol governance, unlike Ethereum's ether, which is used to pay transaction fees. The total supply of ARB is 10 billion, with 56% of those tokens being controlled by the community. The remaining tokens will be distributed to DAOs operating within the Arbitrum ecosystem, investors, employees of Offchain Labs, the development firm behind Arbitrum, and a treasury controlled by the new Arbitrum DAO.
The release of ARB coincides with the launch of Arbitrum Obit, which allows third-party applications and protocols to build new "layer 3" blockchains on top of Arbitrum's low-fee infrastructure. This expansion of the Arbitrum ecosystem may increase the demand for ARB as the token used for protocol governance.
The Arbitrum DAO will have significant authority to control crucial decisions at the core protocol level, including the allocation of chain revenue to support the ecosystem and how the technology of the chain is upgraded. The ARB token will provide ARB holders with the ability to participate in important decisions regarding Arbitrum One and Arbitrum Nova, which allow users to transact on the Ethereum blockchain more efficiently, with faster speeds and lower fees.
The introduction of the ARB token is expected to bring greater decentralization to the Arbitrum ecosystem compared to other scaling chains. However, the success of ARB and the Arbitrum ecosystem will depend on the adoption and usage of the technology by developers and users.
As with any investment, it is important to conduct your own research and due diligence before making any decisions. The success of ARB will depend on factors such as the adoption of Arbitrum by developers and users, the effectiveness of the governance process, and the overall performance of the cryptocurrency market. Investors should carefully consider the potential risks and rewards before investing in ARB.
GMX is a decentralized perpetual and spot exchange that operates with a native token, GMX. The platform offers low swap fees and trading with zero price impact, which can be beneficial to users. Furthermore, GMX allows users to trade various assets, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Avalanche, and leverage their positions up to 30x.
Utility and Governance Token:
GMX's native token, GMX, offers both utility and governance benefits. Thirty percent of the generated fees are distributed to token holders, providing a passive revenue stream and an incentive to hold the asset for extended periods. Users can also stake the GMX token to earn more passive revenue, with APRs hovering above 10% at the time of writing. The trading platform also offers a secondary token called GLP, which accrues 70% of the generated fees and can also be staked on both blockchains, with APRs near 20%.
Exchange Listings:
GMX has recently been listed on major exchanges such as Binance and FTX, with more platforms likely to follow. This listing has created short-term price momentum, but interest in the decentralized platform has been high for several months. As a result, GMX is one of the better-performing crypto assets of Q3 2022. However, the success of GMX depends on getting more people to use the platform.
GMX's low swap fees and trading with zero price impact are highly attractive to users. The platform's ability to trade various assets and leverage up to 30x provides users with market exposure that can yield significant profits. Moreover, the GMX token's utility and governance benefits offer a passive revenue stream to holders and create an incentive to hold the asset for extended periods. The recent listing of GMX on major exchanges will likely create short-term price momentum, but the success of the platform ultimately depends on getting more people to use it.

2023.03.21 12:18 indyarchyguy Building Owner Support for Revit

I have a client that would like to open both AutoCAD and Revit files (althought if push came to shove, it could just be Revit). They are in the construction department for a developer. I originally told them they should just buy BlueBeam and use the PDF files. However, they want the ability to make a few changes to tenant suites, etc. that they can then provide for smaller projects, keep record of AHU's, lighting, etc. that are in each space, amongst other things.
They intend to train 1-2 employees to use this software/app in order to accomplish what they need. I have been out of the actual game so long that I am unsure which is the best route for them to go. I only use BlueBeam and even then, I do not use the CAD version (I am not even sure it will be able to open Revit).
What apps/software/SAAS would you recommend? They are willing to pay for it...not looking for free or workaround. Thanks!

2023.03.21 12:06 Aappleyard Struggling with perfect cubes

Hi folks. I am trying to print some dice and other tokens and such that require accurate dimensions. I have had success with a few things and then finally go to printing some D6's and noticed the dice are distorted ever so slightly. Some sides and bulging and others and concave.
Here are some pictures.
I have a Saturn 2 and I am using the 8k Water Washable Resin. I use Lychee slicer. I manually place supports.
The room where the printing is situated is at about 25degrees C, I am sure the build plate is level. Not sure what else to do.

Is there something I am doing wrong or missing?

  2. Practice Mindful Eating: Mindful eating is a practice that involves paying attention to your food and how you eat it. It can help you develop a better relationship with food and reduce emotional eating. Take time to savor your food, pay attention to hunger and fullness cues, and avoid distractions while eating.
  3. Address Emotional Eating: Emotional eating is a common barrier to weight loss. It involves using food to cope with emotions like stress, sadness, or anxiety. To overcome emotional eating, try to identify triggers and find alternative ways to cope with emotions, such as exercise, meditation, or talking to a friend.
  4. Build a Support System: Having a support system can help you stay motivated and accountable. Join a weight loss group, work with a coach or therapist, or find a friend to exercise with. Surround yourself with people who support your goals and understand your struggles.
  5. Practice Self-Compassion: Self-compassion is essential for overcoming the mental and emotional barriers to weight loss. Be kind and forgiving to yourself when you slip up or face challenges. Remember that setbacks are a natural part of the process, and you can always start again.
Weight loss is a complex process that involves not only physical but also mental and emotional factors. By understanding and addressing the mental and emotional barriers to success, you can develop a healthier relationship with food and achieve your weight loss goals. Remember, it's not just about what you eat but also how you think and feel about food.

2023.03.21 12:03 GuruMann1 How To Do Pull Ups Properly

Pull-ups are a great exercise to strengthen your upper body, especially your back, shoulders, and arms. Here's how to do pull-ups properly and how to work up to your first one:

Proper Pull-Up Form

  1. Grip: Start by gripping the bar with your palms facing away from you, slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.
  2. Hang: Hang from the bar with your arms straight and your shoulders relaxed.
  3. Pull: Pull yourself up towards the bar by squeezing your shoulder blades together and bending your elbows. Keep your chest up and your elbows close to your body.
  4. Chin: Once your chin is over the bar, lower yourself back down in a controlled motion.

Progressions to Your First Pull-Up

If you can't do a pull-up yet, don't worry! There are several exercises you can do to build up the strength needed to perform a pull-up:
  1. Negatives: Start by standing on a chair or bench to get your chin above the bar. Then slowly lower yourself down to a count of five seconds. Repeat for several repetitions.
  2. Assisted Pull-Ups: Use an assisted pull-up machine or a resistance band to help support your weight as you pull yourself up towards the bar. As you get stronger, decrease the assistance until you can perform a pull-up unassisted.
  3. Rows: Rows are an exercise that strengthens the same muscles as pull-ups. Use dumbbells, a barbell, or a cable machine to perform rows.
  4. Lat Pulldowns: Lat pulldowns target the same muscles as pull-ups. Use a lat pulldown machine to perform this exercise.
  5. Eccentric Pull-Ups: Jump up so that your chin is above the bar. Then slowly lower yourself down to a count of five seconds. Repeat for several repetitions.
Remember, it takes time and patience to build up the strength required to do a pull-up. Consistently perform these exercises and you'll be able to do your first pull-up in no time!

First Part Start Previous Next

Log: 6000001.0.16, Personal, Captain Yormdrill

The tactic Greggory had proposed Is not a new one, but...
We met the reinforcing squadrons before the local day broke. I could see by the way they strode from their shuttle with weapons in their upper hands and a sidearm in their dominant lower hands that these were fighting men. I can hardly imagine using only two arms to stabilize my rifle, let alone using my free hand to fire a pistol. Gregory simply raised an eyebrow, as if he was wondering how effective the technique could be.
The officers began to introduce themselves, but Greggory interrupted them saying, "I don't intend to embarrass myself getting your names wrong," he pointed to each of them in turn, "I'll call you Red Leader, you Blue Leader, and you Green Leader. Your squads are Red, Blue, and Green squads respectively. You can call me Sneaky and our squad Sneaky squad."
Blue Leader seemed to rankle, "And who are you to give orders?"
"I asked for veterans," Greggory began flatly, "what are you a veteran of?"
"Four boarding actions, repelling."
"I am a veteran of a planetary resistance to the Consumptives, a planetary assault landing, thirty-two combat drops, three boarding actions, and four repelling actions. I have either been in training or combat since I was ten years old. When you ask who I am to give orders, here's the answer: I'm the one man on this planet who could take out every last one of those gangers without them ever seeing me once. I'm the one man on this planet who has taken part in destabilizing a superior enemy force. I am the one man on this planet who knows what the void he's talking about. I'm voiding Sneaky, the one from the memes, and I'm here to teach this part of the galaxy what happens if you touch my family. Fall in, marine, and shut up until you have something less stupid to say."
So calm was his tirade, that it unsettled Blue Leader, who simply shifted his feet while Green Leader asked, "Are you some kind of sniper?" Which Gregory answered by nodding, so he followed up, "With a plasma caster?"
"It wouldn't be my first choice. Low projectile velocity, very obvious when firing, low penetration. I can do the work, though."
"We do not have many snipers outside the anti-pirate fleets, and this force is add-hoc. We could probably get you a magnetic accelerator, though. Our Master at Arms keeps a very well-stocked armory."
"Please, see what you can arrange, but I don't want to wait around for it. Like I said, I can do the work."
Red Leader interjected, "This is well, we also wish to get the work done. It is clear that you have the most relevant experience, yours is the command."
"Wonderful. Okay, what are your squad compositions? What, if any specialists do you have?"
Red Leader began, "My squad is comprised of all former anti-piracy marines. We don't have any planetary experience, but this city is not too different from the stations we've boarded. I can command it either as an assault force, flank support, or fire support unit."
Green Leader followed, "My men have repelled multiple boarding actions, and we don't have experience fighting in such open areas. However, we have a high degree of accuracy, since our ship drills regularly." I felt a little chagrinned at that, as so few of us passed Greggory's test to join his rescue mission due to how lax I was and am with firearms training.
Blue Leader grudgingly followed, "We're mainly a salvage outfit. We have some cutting and demolitions equipment, and the know-how to use it. Otherwise, we've fended off multiple scorched scavenger attacks."
"Did any of you bring sustained fire weapons?"
Blue Leader answered, "One of my small teams has a mining laser that can be used as a crew served weapon."
"Each of my fire teams has a rapid fire magnetic accelerator. On rapid fire, they can sustain a five second stream before reloading the ferrous block," Red Leader said.
"The laser beam lasts around ten seconds."
"My squad has only the carbines," Green Leader said.
"Link to my visor, with our assets, I believe we can convince most of the hostiles to surrender or flee before assaulting the building. Let's get one thing clear now, we do not shoot if they surrender. We do not back the criminals into a corner."
I was crouched beneath a window sill on the third floor of a building overlooking a narrow street. Greggory was right, our limited activities had encouraged bolder patrols, this one was fourty men and a ground vehicle with what looked like a heavily modified industrial cutting laser mounted in the back. They would not have stood a chance against Sneaky Squad. I rose up slowly, and lined up my opening shot on the gunner in the vehicle. Gregory signaled the start by taking the head off of the Tourounti who was very obviously shouting orders. Her abdomen walked her headless torso along for a few more paces before it collapsed in a chitinous heap. I put the gunner out of our misery and idly wondered if the ganger leader was related to a certain defense barrister.
I had not been the only one to choose a target, and the lucky few gangers who had tossed down their weapons were allowed to live. Allowed to see more of us, and carry the same message of how to survive back to their fellows along with the reminder that they can't count on being so lucky twice. Next time they might be the opening target.
I find myself disturbed by just how much carnage the gangers are willing to absorb. We want their leaders, not them. Perhaps they fear their leaders more than us? I feel this will not remain the case.
After the battle, he instructed Red and Green squads to circle around to the opposite side of the ganger headquarters and ambush a ganger patrol that was likely to be in the area, while Blue squad came with us to ambush a larger patrol force. This one perhaps sixty men. They panicked the moment Gregory took the leg off of one of the two team leaders. They fired wildly all about them, screamed curses, prayers, and calls to their mothers or fathers to come save them. The lower accuracy of our teammates lead to a larger number of wounded, and we let the five survivors drag them away. Then, it was time to do it again.
By the fifth ambush, they began to surrender before half of them were either dead or wounded. They were relieved of their weapons, and sent away with the same message, and the reminder that some always die before the surrender.
We were preparing our tenth ambush of a very large force, it looked to be over a hundred, but we saw they had one of their number in bonds, and were carrying their weapons by the barrels, with either the stocks or grips up toward the sky.
I recognized one of the lieutenants.
"Lay down your arms," Greggory announced with the help of some speakers placed for the purpose. They did so, "Now march forward until I say stop. Stop. Place your hands on your heads and kneel. Except the four of you holding that void sucker. Good, now wait there."
Greg ordered Blue squad to cover us, and we came out into the open to receive our prisoner.
"He wants to know why we're doing this," Quindrum translated.
"Because you touched my family. You get to help teach a lesson," Greggory said before whipping the top of his foot into the side of the officer's knee, sending him sprawling to the ground, "and the lesson is to never do that. The rest of you, walk forward slowly. If I see you with weapons, you won't see me. You'll just die."
The massive surrender was a balm to my soul. I had begun to fear that annihilation was the only option.
"Instruct the shuttle that his cell is to have no mattress or blankets. He is to be fed bread and water until time can be made for his judgement," Gregory ordered while the retreating gangers were still in earshot.
It was unfortunate that the other team did not have such an event. Their four ambushes had gone much the same way as our previous ones.

Dear Diary,

Things are starting to look a little better. Mom says that the gangers on the planet have started surrendering instead of fighting, so that's good. On top of that, the Justiciar is here, and will be able to start holding trials tomorrow. She is an impressive ship, The Light of Justice in the Darkness seems to sort of glide through space. It's a bit intimidating to be so close to her, and with a hundred Magistrates and their retinues aboard... I think that instead of finding a penal ship to send someone to, they'll have to commission one and give her a fitting difficult mission.
Yoiv has been going around telling everyone that he knew that Sneaky would rescue him from the very start, so he wasn't afraid at all. I caught him crying in Greg's berth though. If he wasn't afraid before, he is now. The ship's other littles are all convinced that it's all better now, but Yoiv has his own fears. His own worry. My job isn't over.
