2023.06.05 15:24 BryceMaximusJames I am currently sitting on an active fb page, how do I earn from it?
My classic fb page stats:
- 25k page likes, 30k followers, 100 to 500 daily growing followers.
- 2m post reach and engagements in a week span, even more if a post/reel goes viral.
- 100k daily reactions, 10k daily shares, 5k daily comments on posts (reels and photo posts)
- 100k daily minutes viewed on reels, +500k on a single video daily easy if one gets viral
- Only 5% of my posts engagements are from followers so I see this as an opportunity for growth.
It's just full of reposts and memes.
I applied for the monetization program (in stream ads), but it is still pending. Haven't earned from stars yet, bonuses are not working for some reason.
I've looked into affiliate marketing, is it a good way to go? Any tips on how to start?

2023.06.05 15:23 Direct-Region7166 Senegal Bichir Feeding
| || |
Hey peeps. Was just wondering what you are feeding your bichirs? I have a community tank with one 7 to 8 inch senegal bichir, mollies, angels, and a few others. I feed the other fish flakes and pellets before tossing in a couple frozen blood worm blocks for the bichir, but often times the angels and my gourami demolish them before they can reach the bottom where the bichir can sniff it out. Any recommendations on food that keeps well for my bichir that the other fish won't go after? TIA submitted by Direct-Region7166 to freshwateraquarium [link] [comments]
2023.06.05 15:23 rleitee Fear of Judgment: How It's Hindering My Performance, Limiting My Life, and Affecting My Mental Health
Hello, I'm an 18-year-old male living in Brazil, and lately, I've been struggling with my emotions. To be honest, I lack confidence when it comes to achieving the level of performance I desire. While I have no trouble making friends or expressing myself, I'm more fragile than I appear.
Ever since I was young, I've found it difficult to voice my true desires, fearing that I would be the cause of someone's anger or disappointment. I experience a great deal of anxiety and discomfort when someone expresses anger, even if it's not directed at me. Unfortunately, this has spilled over into other aspects of my life.
Recently, I've been trying to distance myself from a certain friend whose reactions were having a negative impact on me. He never accepts being wrong and turns every conversation into a logical argument where you have to defend your point. If things don't go his way, he becomes indignant. This process of distancing is still ongoing, and just thinking about it brings about anxiety. I worry about what he might say to me, how he will try to prove me wrong, make a big deal out of it, or use my past words against me. I've been friends with him for nine years, and although this behavior has always been present, it has become increasingly difficult in the last three years. Usually, things normalize over time, so I tend to forget about it and move on. However, I now realize how much it has affected me because his narcissism has eroded my already diminished confidence. Presently, I lack the courage to end the friendship, and I don't even feel justified in being upset about the relationship.
But what truly troubles me is what I mentioned at the beginning of this message—this lack of self-confidence severely hampers my ability to perform well in my activities. I'm an eSports player with considerable gaming experience, but the gaming community can be toxic. Despite everyone telling me to "just ignore it," I find it difficult to do so. Insults and encounters with people who have insulted me in the past paralyze me. I struggle to express what's going on in my mind. It's not that I'm afraid of these individuals physically harming me; rather, their presence completely disrupts my performance. I become unable to concentrate, which has a detrimental impact on my gameplay. In order to train, I've resorted to playing on alternate accounts where my identity is unknown, allowing me to disregard any insults. I did this for about a year and managed to reach the twentieth position in the national ranking.
However, this presents a familiar problem—I can't participate in tournaments with alternate accounts due to the risk of being banned. Consequently, I've never been able to perform well in tournaments. Uncontrollable anxiety and fear hinder my focus. The biggest obstacle is my inability to concentrate. I recognize that this isn't my best performance, and it feels as if a spell has been cast upon me. Whenever I encounter people who I know dislike me, negative feelings arise. Despite having a supportive social circle and people who want to see me succeed, I still find myself struggling. Why do I continue to feel this way? How can I overcome it?
To be honest, I'm exhausted. I'm tired of being at the mercy of other people's judgment, tired of being afraid of others. I simply want to believe in my own potential. I've dedicated years to training, and I've reached a good level in the game (not yet professional, but close). However, it feels like I'm still the same person as before. I can't convince myself that I'm good enough and the same old excuses keep circulating in my mind: "Those who mistreated you are only as good as you are at the game, so you don't receive any credit for your improvement." "Everyone is getting good just as you, sometimes even better" It's a constant battle to overcome these thoughts and recognize my own achievements.
It feels like I'm trapped in a vicious cycle. I lack self-trust, which means that none of my accomplishments truly bring me lasting satisfaction. My mind always fixates on the things that bother me, amplifying their impact and preventing me from performing at my best. This constant state of frustration and disappointment only adds to the difficulty of the situation, making it even harder to break free from this cycle.
I've attempted to tackle these challenges fueled by hate and by trying to overpower my fear, but it hasn't brought me any real satisfaction. Even if it occasionally yields some results, that's not the path I want for my life. I yearn to face my struggles head-on, to grow and improve without anyone's actions hindering me from pursuing what I truly desire, and I don't want to resort to spreading more hate and inflating my ego as a defense mechanism. I believe there must be a better way to navigate these challenges and grow as a person without perpetuating negativity.
However, I find myself lost and unsure of how to cope with these issues. The impact extends beyond my gaming experience and affects other areas of my life, such as my studies and other ambitions. It feels overwhelming, and I'm desperately seeking guidance on how to navigate these obstacles.
If anyone has a suggestion for a Dr. K video that addresses this topic, please share it in the comments. Your input would greatly benefit me. Thank you for taking the time to read my message.

2023.06.05 15:23 lightningx24 None of the stances are clicking with me. I think I'm going to be basic and use the default single saber - What stance should I pair with it?
Here are my thoughts on the stances now that I have them all.
Double-bladed - I've always thought this style is dumb, so haven't used it particularly much in either game. Nothing much to say about the actual gameplay of the stance.
Dual Wield - Not a big fan of going all in for single target. What I've experimented with feels really bad when fighting multiple enemies. I also don't like the low block meter.
Blaster - The most interesting of the new stances to me, but I can't even start the bounty side quest because my game is bugged. Don't really want to use it since I can't purchase the special ammunition.
Crossguard - I hate the drop kick running attack, and the attacks are just slow. I have heard good things about this stance, so it's probably a matter of getting good and investing in the tree.
More options are great, but for some reason I'm not liking any of them! I would love to hear what you all recommend to pair with single saber, or if I should really give another pair of stances another chance.

2023.06.05 15:22 No-Stress-5285 My vent
My sister (#3) is my 94 year old mother's main caregiver and is paid to do so from my mother's savings and money from the VA. Mom can dress and bathe and feed herself, but her dementia gets worse every time I see her. Sister #3 doesn't like the word dementia and refuses to see mom as person with dementia. We have worked out a schedule where she gets relief from the caregiving most weekends. But the rest of us are not paid for this time. Mom can't afford it even if I wanted to be paid. I drive four hours on Friday to get here and four hours on Monday, once a month, to get home. We have been doing this for about three years.
I have four sisters. About a dozen years ago, sister 4 had an adult temper tantrum and cut everyone in the family out of her life, even our mother who had done nothing to deserve that treatment. My mother even cut her out of the will for awhile. We all told mom that it was her decision, but if she was going to make changes, please don't put sister #4 in charge of anything. Sister #4 apparently had a change of heart several years ago, and made up with sister #3 and through her, got back in mom's good graces. Fine. My mother should have a relationship with all of her children. However, sister #4 has always been the bossy one of the family and for our whole life, has always expected the rest of us to do what she wants us to do. I have many examples of that. She is competent and capable and smart, so her ideas are often good; it is just her bossy attitude that was the problem. She, and sister #3, submitted the VA application without any discussion with the rest of us. And when we found out, they refused to provide us with any information about it. I do believe, and will do so until proven otherwise, that she made a few false statements on the application, but the VA approved it, so either I was wrong or the VA didn't do their due diligence. Sister #4 has made no effort to make up with the other three of us (#1, #2 and #5). This creates a great deal of tension in the family. We are now a broken family.
Sisters #3 and #1 had a big fight a few years ago when sister 1 was with mom, but sister 3 showed up because mom had called her because mom, in her dementia state, didn't recognize sister 1 at that time. This led to sister 1 leaving the house and saying she was not coming back. Sister #5 and I also had various arguments with sister #3, but finally decided that it was detrimental to mom to have those fights. So now, I mostly keep my mouth shut.
Sister #4 now has weak sister #3 in her pocket and now is in control of her which means she is also in control of mom. And sister #4 doesn't care about what the rest of us think.
I have tried to get mom and sister #1 to keep a relationship and so she will visit mom when I am there on my weekend. Sometimes.
I had made plans for mom and me to visit sister #1 on Sunday, yesterday, and told mom about it at multiple times on Saturday. But she woke up Sunday morning in a bad mood and started on her rant about sister #1 which is mostly false, but her dementia takes over and I can never convince her that no, sister #1 does not want your money and no, does not want you dead, and yes, maybe her husband drinks too much maybe he doesn't, but that is not your problem. Then she went looking for her phone list so she could call sister #3 to come over, it seems, to rescue her from me, I guess, or whatever else her demented mind was telling her. I am actually not certain my mother can even make a phone call right now - not sure she would know which buttons to push. But I said to her, if you are going to call sister #3 to come over, then I will go pack my bags and she can take care of you and I will go home. And of course, I started crying which upset her even more. I then gave up on the idea of seeing sister #1 that day and tried to have a good day with her anyway.
Even before her dementia was as bad as it is, my mother will almost never stop talking. She has talking points that she repeats over and over and over. Some are false memories, some have some validity but are not really accurate and I know that the dementia makes this worse than it would be.
I am getting tired of my weekends here. I dread the drive down. When I am here, she doesn't let me help her clean closets or drawers although she complains about having too much stuff. She doesn't have that many hobbies that can occupy her mind. She likes to watch the action on her street when people walk by. Sister #3 is a bit of a hoarder at her own home and has moved some of her overflow into my mom's house which my mother doesn't like. For instance, sister #3 got a good deal on a turkey about five years ago, and it is still in mother's freezer. But even mom will say that she can't stand up to sister #3 since she depends on her.
The five of us have no plan for what to do with mom when she gets worse. I did some looking around at various facilities, but sister #3 just dismissed what I found. Sister #4 probably has plans, but none of the rest of us get to know those plans. And after sister #1 left, mom, with her demented brain, contacted her attorney and changed her power of attorney to include sister #4 as a backup. I am nowhere on any legal documents, probably because I live four hours away.
I often cry on my way home after holding in my emotions. Today, on my way home, I will go by the cemetery and talk to Dad and God. I know the best thing for mom is for me to give sister #3 this respite time, so I will continue, but it is taking a toll on me. I have no doubt that it is taking a toll on sister #3 as well, but I have gotten to the point that I just don't care about her feelings about it. She is a loving daughter and devoted to my mother, so there is not any issue of abuse. But she does not really provide my mother with daily cognitive or physical exercise and I think they spend most of their days watching sister #3s favorite TV shows. She also hates housework and so she bought a robot vac (not sure it was her money or mom's). But doesn't dust furniture. There is a layer on every piece. Yes, I could get out the furniture polish and take care of it and maybe it is petty for me not to do it, but sister #3 is here all the time and is the only one paid for what she provides. It costs me $100 in gas money just to drive back and forth. I also hate cooking at this point in my life, but I often buy food that I want to prepare and I pay for it myself. At this point, it would be difficult for mom to adjust to a facility because of her dementia, but that day is coming and we have no plan for it as a family.
It helps to vent, although I don't think there are any solutions. I am grateful that sister #3 is willing to be mom's caregiver, but am less and less concerned with her own well-being and needs. Our sister problems are not helping mom, but no one wants to try to get along anymore.

The people in her lives fishing for her attention. I CAN NOT. “I’m not doing good mentally” one comments it and then they all start to roll in after that to get her attention. Like y’all are already subbing to her and now you wanna pour your heart out. That’s weird. Call your friends

2023.06.05 15:22 AlexTruski Best Plastisol Ink Mixing System
Hi, I’m looking at getting a different ink mixing system. I currently have FN and I’m not super impressed with it. It seems like no matter how good I cure it, or even cure+heat press it, a good handful of my work cracks after 2-3 washes. I do temp check with a laser gun and get it anywhere from 290-320°F to make sure that the ink gets to 260°F all the way through and do a stretch test after cure and have had some prints be completely fine after multiple washes and some do like mentioned. It’s very inconsistent. I mix it well especially the white and black with a drill mixer so that shouldn’t be the issue either. Just not impressed to say the least. (Mixing colors seems like the oil separates after a couple of minutes)
So I guess I’m just looking for everyone’s opinion on what would be a high quality system. I’m not looking for something cheap but something quality.
It seems like from just looking around on YouTube videos and Reddit that either Monarch or Wilflex Epic Rio are two of the better ones.
Any input matters TIA.

2023.06.05 15:22 TattooedMush Would it be weird to change my name?
I have been thinking quite a bit about changing my name, for multiple reasons:
- (This is my biggest reason) My name is "Faith" and basically any time I introduce myself to people, they ask, "Oh so you're religious!? What church do you go to!?" And it's very very awkward when I have to then let them know I am no longer religious. I was religious growing up and attended a private Christian University that caused me a lot of mental trauma and I don't like being reminded of it. Plus, I just don't like the aftermath of telling people I'm not religious. Most people don't care if you're religious but as soon as I tell them my name and say I'm not religious, they're super awkward?
- My pronouns are she/they and I identify as demi-femme. I feel as though "Faith" is super feminine. I feel like it doesn't really fit "the vibe" I'm trying to give off?? (This is a dumb reason)
- My mom gave me this name (obviously) and I've recently come to terms with the fact that she has been physically and emotionally abusive to us almost our entire lives. Although, I'm still in contact with her, I'm trying harder to live my life how I want to vs just letting her tell me how to live my life, which has always been the situation. I feel as though changing my name might provide a significant push in that sense. In almost an, "I'm no longer hers" kind of way.
- I've just never really been attached to my name 🤷♀️ plus, I love naming pets and pretend children and stuff and have always been into like, "what's in a name" and I think it would be fun to rename myself 😅
While my fiancé supports me, he says he'd rather I don't cause it might be weird getting to know a whole new name for me. I think this point is null because he usually calls me by my nickname (Mush/Mushy) anyway.
My mom is obviously going to be -pissed- which my fiancé likes to remind me about every time I bring it up. She is definitely going to use it as a manipulation point, where she'll say something like, "You don't think what I chose was good enough/I knew what I was doing/I'm a good enough mother?!"
Also, its worth mentioning: we are getting married May 2024 and if I'm changing my name on everything to have my fiancé's last name anyway, I can just change my first name then too, right? The biggest issue is that everything for our wedding will say like "Faith + fiancé
." I don't think we have much now that says our names on it for decorations, but since I've just started thinking about it, I don't really have any name ideas, and I don't want to bring it up to my mother (who is also doing most of our decorations) just in case I decide to just live with it.
Names I've thought about already: Finch Finn Collins Delilah Eli (Elias)? Mae
Are these dumb reasons to change my name? Would it be dumb to go through with this?

2023.06.05 15:21 XXV_25 Poison type ONLY FireRed Playthrough ! or in other words: Pokemon I never used
| || | submitted by XXV_25 to pokemon [link] [comments]
I've already made 4 monotypes playthroughs in FireRed, and this is probably my last. I've used only Pokemon with a primary poison type, which are: Golbat - Nidoqueen - Nidoking - Arbok - Muk - Weezing (unlike Venausar who was a secondary poison type)
Starting off, I picked a random starter and headed straight to Route 3 to catch my first Pokemon, Nidoran (M). I caught 2 since I can get Nidoran (F) by doing a trade with an NPC. After that, I caught my next Pokemon at Mt.Moon, Zubat. After defeating Misty, I went to Route 12 to catch Ekans. The team has now 4 pokemon and will be completed once I head to Cinnabar Island to get the final 2, Koffing and Grimer.
I used the Moon Stone on both Nidorino and Nidorina (I think level 23 and 22 respectively), since they both learn a move at that level while evolving. Arbok's moveset is probably one of the worst in the game, literally unplayable. Golbat becomes usable once he learns Wing Attack.
The most surprising thing was their moveset, it is SO bad. Nidoqueen and Nidoking don't learn any ground moves, and only 1 poison move, RIP STAB. Golbat only has poison fang and 2 average flying type moves. Arbok ... I prefer not to speak. As for Muk and Weezing, which I catch at Cinnabat Island, their moveset is slightly better. At least they learn a good poison type attack; both learn Sludge and Muk learns Sludge Bomb. This was probably the worst part of the save, however I did not face any difficulty while facing any gym type. The only challenge was my rival's Alakazam before heading to Victory Road, a real pain in the *ss.
Anwyays, this was my team with moveset before defeating the Elite 4:
Weezing: Sludge - Explosion - Thunderbolt - Smokescreen Muk: Sludge Bomb - Dig - Toxic - Brick Break Golbat: Wing Attack - Poison Fang - Bite - Confuse Ray Nidoking: Megahorn - Rock Slide - Earthquake - Thrash Nidoqueen: Ice Beam - Superpower - Strength - Surf Arbok: Stockpile - Swallow - Spit Up - Glare
Again, my rival's Alakazam was a huge struggle, but Golbat's Confuse Ray did the trick.
I might complete also the post-game story since this is the first time I used 5 of the 6 Pokemon. Muk and Weezing might become two of my favorite Pokemon ... I'm not liking it...
2023.06.05 15:21 Brorestes Jedi Build
I’ve just finished the chapel in act 2 working through a Jedi build on Core and I like to keep a party of 4 (including KC) and I wanted to see what people think!
So far I’m level 9:
1 Monk SF (CHA AC)
3 Paladin Divine Guardian of Irori (CHA to Saves and Divine Troth)
5 Kineticist Elemental Engine (Fire, then air for plasma, then water) Using kinetic blade, going to use dispelling infusion among others
Mythic 1: Ascendant Element Fire
Mythic 2: Kinetic Overcharge
My next level will be Magus SS so I can get free weapon focus for Shatter Defenses later and also so I can merge spellbook (using mods) with Aeon so I can keep the cool cosmic powers that feel pretty Jedi themed when I inevitably go Legend.
After I go Legend I was going to max out Kineticist, the next question would be what other classes I would want to help round it out mechanically while keeping it as closely aligned to a Jedi as possible.
I’m not sure how many more levels in Magus I really want, probably between 7-11 to get the most out of my INT bonus.
I was also thinking about 4 levels in duelist for more AC but not sure if this is necessary.
Mechanically a level of Demonslayer would be great but not a great thematic fit.
Does anyone have any suggestions they think would be good? The main mods I’m using are Dark Codex, Spellbook Merge, and the TTT mods.

2023.06.05 15:21 South_Brush105 Am i at fault for taking food twice?
So am a bcom fresher graduated recently this year. As a last event of farewell our class teacher invited us all over to her house to spent some time together since all our farewell events are over. We all went together accepting her invitation. . The catch is that i didn't had good relations with any of my tutors (some exception is there) mainly because am an introvert and kinda liked it to avoid my mentors from a lower class. It also has to do with the fact that i was an average student among alot of academically good students at my early phase of schooling and nobody really cared about my existence since am a silent person minding my own business doing my stuff. This didn't change till today though i made progress in my academics and passed board exams will highest grades possible. . But at the event at our teachers place there was food and i was hungry. I have to mention that iam a very slow eater since day one and i eat alot less than i require when i go out with friends most of the time,not that iam proud of but have to keep up with the groups speed. Sometimes they would wait for me to finish but it is what it is and i hate that awkward rush to finish my food without enjoying it. Back to the point,i took food two times and i was the last one to take as they all immediately sat down for sharing memories etc.. Though a couple of my friends took food twice i felt like a was at fault as a couple of my friends started starring at me some told not to take twice as i reach for it though i took it right after one of my friends. I can't keep it out of my system and am writing it at 3.00am IST.Am at fault here? Damn i can't just keep it out of my head and it's not a good feeling.

2023.06.05 15:21 SuperPie64 In Ireland, a mother’s dead son was used in alt-right anti-vax propaganda without consent. Now she’s suing them in a landmark case for our country. But she needs some support.
If there is ANY chance this could be talked about on the show for even 30 seconds, just to shout out the mothers gofundme, it would be amazing. You might think this isn’t worth it as it’s not in America, but there are definitely right wing American nut jobs funding the alt right side of this case. Please!!!
Here is the gofundme: https://www.gofundme.com/f/landmark-legal-case-against-gemma-odoherty
Here is an article that adds more context: https://www.breakingnews.ie/ireland/gofundme-page-launched-for-mother-suing-gemma-odoherty-over-use-of-sons-image-1485022.html
And finally, here is a great comment by u/Stalloned
from another thread explaining why this is so important:
“This mother needs all the public support she can get, Gemma and her cohort are not a joke with what they are trying to achieve.
They are not just simply pushing conspiracies for shits & giggles.
Gemma & Waters are part of the white supremacist Identitarian movement and have spent years trying their damnedest to push it into Irish society.
They use multiple conspiracies to cast nets to pull people with different fears into the movement. Vaccines, 5G, immigrants, LED lights, climate change doesn't exist, flat earth, etc. There's always a new conspiracy to plug people into their pipeline.
Gemma has recently gone full mask-off Nazi by defending Hitler and denying the Holocaust / that the Jews deserved it while Waters did a voiceover for the local NI branch of the now disbanded white supremacist group Generation Identity. The artist mentioned in the picture, Xurious, is a self-proclaimed "fashwave" musician who uses fascist speeches in their music. Their album covers use the "Alt-Right" AR symbol designed American Neo-Nazi Richard Spencer (the infamous Nazi who got punched on video) who helped push the "fashwave" movement to appeal to people.
When Musk recently replied to a particular Irish person on Twitter about the hate speech law, that same guy is a local Neo Nazi who is good friends with Richard Spencer
This mother has to rely on local public support and a GoFundMe while these ghouls will stomp over anyone they want with the confidence of having an international backing”

2023.06.05 15:21 clslimz I (25F) found out that my boyfriend (26M) has received nudes from his female friend.
My partner (25M) and I (24F) are in a LDR for 3 years+. It was incredibly difficult at the beginning as we gone through multiple rough patches. We have taken a break and patched back once. Ever since we patched back, LDR has been a somewhat smooth experience for the both of us. We stopped holding each other to high standards, and strove to communicate better. We've had nice and funny conversations online for the past year or so, and we rarely have arguments. This makes me feel closer to him, and reassured that things are going well.
He just came home a week ago. I was excited to see him again. He planned a 4D3N trip to a neighbouring country for my birthday, and I was ecstatic! However, on the night of the first day, I saw that he had a locked secret chat with a female friend that I know of. They have been friends since elementary school, and I am aware of how close they are. She has never been someone that I was wary of because she is attached to another guy as well, and they both have a trusting friendship. Yet, I was wrong. He opened the secret chat with her when he was seated next to me. The secret chat has a self-destructive timer and it automatically deletes messages after the stipulated timeframe (could be a few seconds to a day and a week). I saw one picture of herself in a bra with hickeys on her neck, with the caption"look what you've done to me". I kid you not, my heart literally skipped a full beat. I couldn't believe it. Did I see things wrongly? I wish I had the heart and guts to confront him right there and then, but I couldn't. I stuck myself out for the next 4 days and it has got to be the most painful experience when I do not have the answers. On the last night, I gave in and checked his phone while he slept. In the chat were more naked pictures of herself, sexts, and how much they missed each other. I've never had a panic attack in my entire life but I suffered from one that night. I was so hurt and blindsided. How messed up is it for two people to cheat on their own relationships? He is upfront whenever I ask him who he's texting. Perhaps his supposed "honesty" was just a mask to hide what was really happening beneath.
For the past few days, my heart has broken and my self-worth has taken a hit. Tomorrow, we are going on another pre-planned trip for a week. I would have confronted him about his lady friend, and cancel the entire trip if it wasn't non-refundable, with all expenses being paid. What started off as a trip that I was so excited about, quickly became one that I'm dreading so much. I am holding out to the end of the trip where I will break things off with him. I am usually logical and highly rational; my friends have joked that I'm so upright that I need to be injected with more emotions. However, in times like these where I am in the eye of the storm, my rationality goes out of the window, and I allow my heart to brave through one greatest hit to another. I hate this part of myself. I hate thinking that I am not good enough when I know that I am a catch and a wonderful partner. I hate to lose my best friend and my partner at once. But this is reality.
Reddit, how should I bring this up to my partner at the end of my trip? How can I recover from these? All advice is very much appreciated. Thank you for reading.

2023.06.05 15:21 Duvyboi Floaty mouse/Icy mouse feel/sluggish mouse/heavy mouse feel/input lag.
So basically, i have this problem for 2, almost 3 years now. What i discovered, is that no fix for this problem. The problem still remains unsolved, and does not have a fix solution. There was fixes, but not full fix, and i think we going nowhere with 15 minutes long solutions, after that the problem starts again. There are 2 types of people, who heard and suffers in this problem, 2nd who never heard it. But lets continue. Symptom: The mouse movement is weird, not accurate, when u flick, u cant flick it slides away or slides accurately, i wouldnt say more, its a faulty movement of the mouse, what i mean under that, nothing is normal: no fix dpi(meaning:in a normal computer you feel whats like a normal dpi, here if you put my pc, and for example your good" pc next to each other, you notify, the same dpi same sens doesnt feel the same, lower or higher feeling, depends on dpi, its random btw) so what you cant do from it? You were a literal aimgod? yes, and since then your flick doesnt even hit. yes. i met this version. what you cant do is: you cant spray, by the movement the bullet doesnt go where u want it even if u mastern the pattern, you cant flick precisely, nearly impossible, tracking is your worst, enemy, you can do nothing, u are literally lost and cant play the same as u were playing. same with the keyboard. you cant peek normally bc it delayed. this problem still remains on desktop and in game also, It not caused by internet. 3 main factors, Hardware, electricity, or software problem. Hardware is literally out. I have read and many others who suffers had around 6-7 pcs and laptops in their hand the problem remains, from new gen to old gen. Electricity. quite suspicious. Why? I've been to several towns, capitals, across the country. i tried 20 alternative solutions even foreign countries. MOVING does not work. who say work its placeboo. why? because they never replied or replied with a feedback, it returned. EMI and dirty elecricity. etc. i think it cant be, but maybe can bc ran out of options. OS aka software: can be. most of the windows users who uses for gaming still lowers the chance, because they use almost default settings at the most of the time. this is the problem. Then why is not everybody effected? different hardware? can be but cant. why? This PROBLEM. still remains UNSOLVED SINCE 2009. BY THOUSANDS OF people. Something isnt right. this cant be, also i cant accept the fact, that nobody solved this problem yet. moreover if it has connection between hardware. why is everybody with different good, the top category ,and even worse, hardware experiences this? Something microsoft put in the os, if thats it, but since 2009, i dont believe. something is happening with these and has connection between something. I dont understand it yet. electricity, what i tried: Moving to new houses. relatively better then buy filters. and moreover i tried also with filters. not worked.
Come on guys bump it up, lets get it fixed. anyone needs a contact with me just write bellow my post. have a good day, and as always, thanks for reading:)

2023.06.05 15:21 sup3rj3lly Giving loot to low lvl players
First post here but seasoned player, been playing from launch but recently started a new character to play along with a friend who just picked it up, and noticed some players have a STINKY attitude about giving free stuff for some reason??
What I mean is, obviously plenty of higher levels are super sweet, drop off some meds or rare plans (I love cute furniture so ty) and leave us to it, but every single session now we have several players harass us with constant emotes and shooting, picking up the stuff in the bag and placing it over and over again in front of us and I'm like, please take the hint that we maybe don't want your pile of leftover trash? My friend is also very much of the attitude that he wants to play from scratch and earn everything he has, and when he's used VC to say "thank you but we're good" we've had guys respond with things like "oh, you mean you don't want free stuff? It's free stuff, really?" with this snarky tone, like yes we're good please leave us to it :')
Of course this is not the worst problem to have, it just happens so often I'm getting frustrated lol. Wondering if anyone else feels the same on a new characteare one of the higher players that didn't realise maybe you were being a bit too pushy, love most of you!!

2023.06.05 15:21 Reep1611 Constant connection issues
So, I recently got nord, as it was rated very well, and I don’t take issues with the pricing too much. What I take issues with is random but frequent issues that make the VPN unusable.
I already went trough everything they recommend, restarting, reinstalling, DNS change etc., talked to their chatbot until it gave me an actual human and even had the ticket thing checkup done (everything works fine, obviously it does in a phase when the problem decides to go away for a day again.).
So before cancelling it I come here to you because outside of the connection issue I really like how well and fast everything works. But the random intervals of it becoming completely unusable are just to much of a problem.
So, I am using a M1 Macbook Air with the up to date version of Ventura. My Nord App is also updated to the current version.
The problem is, that despite having very good internet connection, if I try to use Nord it won’t work. But not just as in just no internet. It’s like I have a bamboo pipe for a connection, loading it but never getting anywhere. The App shows that I am connected. I try loading a site, and it quickly starts to reconnect for some time, before giving up and showing no connection, no specific failure, just a small red Error message telling me nothing.
When I manually click on reconnect, it does connect to any server again, but when loading a site the same happens.
I cannot find what the issue is, and the worst part is that it seems to randomly pop up, make it unusable for a few hours/one or two days, and then goes away again. No pattern, nothing.
I am so done with this, this is my last try at fixing it, and I really hope you can maybe point me in the right direction. Otherwise my solution is just going to another company, because me paying for something I cannot use half the time and they can’t or cannot be bothered to solve is not going to happen.

2023.06.05 15:21 Valentine1979 Pain goes down after bowel movement?
Hello everyone. I haven’t had a laparoscopy but my gyno has unofficially diagnosed me with endo 4 months ago based on my symptoms and the discovery of what she believes to be endometriomas on both ovaries. I am in a “watch and wait” period currently. The cysts on my ovaries did reduce in size when I had the follow up ultrasound. I originally had the ultrasound because I had such a painful period I couldn’t get out of bed for several days.
The last 3 periods I had though were not very painful at all and I was able to go about my days normally. However, my period started yesterday and I have been in absolute agony. My entire abdomen aches and last night I couldn’t sleep because my legs hurt all the way down to my feet, like when you have the flu. Just now I felt the urge to have a bowel movement and I literally though I was going to pass out while I was on the toilet. The pain in my abdomen was like I was being stabbed but once I finished going to the bathroom the pain went down significantly. I read online that this can happen if you have bowel endo and the spasms are part of your colon reacting to stool passing through.
Does anyone else have this??? My boyfriend wants me to call my gyno but I don’t know if that is necessary. She told me that if my symptoms got worse to let her know but like I said I have been good for the last several months until yesterday. I have a follow up appointment in November. I don’t see what she’s going to do for me right now, I have taken some pain medicine and am using a heating pad while I rest. Everything I read about endometriosis basically says the pain is debilitating and yeah I agree. I can’t even believe that this disease doesn’t qualify as a disability, I cannot even imagine trying to go to work today.

2023.06.05 15:20 capt_zen_petabyte Advice // Best way or place to get hold of an LS + Auto for swap?
Would like some advice if possible, or even a 'point in the right direction' please? I am fully aware this question may seem simplistic or stupid to some, so Im prepared for the 'inevitable' answers (so, have at it LOL)
I have two cars I would like to 'upgrade':
For some context
- 1971 HQ Holden
- 1984 (RHD) Pontiac Trans-Am
-- I will be doing the project with my father and would like to do as much of the work as I can myself; I am capable and have electrical / manufacturing trade skills, and my father was a mechanic for over 45 years. We are in Australia. If you need to know more details to provide some good advice, feel free to ask.
Best course of action would be ...
- Find a running car and swap them out?
- Get reconditioned units already out of the vehicle, to drop straight in?
- Brand new 'crate' engine and gearbox
- Buy the engine and gearbox separate / together
- Other (suggestions)

2023.06.05 15:20 ben81PRO Response to China's interception of U.S. aircraft in the South China Sea.
Response to "China's interception of U.S. aircraft" Li Shangfu: All countries manage their own warships and aircraft
both sides of the strait
(Reported by Hong Kong Wen Wei Po reporter Ge Chong in Beijing) At the 20th Shangri-La Dialogue yesterday, someone raised the so-called issue of "Chinese military planes and ships intercepting US military planes and expulsing US warships". In this regard, Chinese State Councilor and Defense Minister Li Shangfu asked back, why did the questions you raised just now happened near China's airspace and territorial waters, but not near the airspace and territorial waters of other countries? This is because China's military aircraft and warships Never go to the airspace and territorial waters of other countries to do so-called navigation hegemony. The Chinese Defense Minister stated eloquently that the best way is for countries to manage their own warships and aircraft well.
◆Chinese State Councilor and Defense Minister Li Shangfu delivered a speech on the topic of "China's New Security Initiative" at the 20th Shangri-La Dialogue yesterday.
Li Shangfu said that China and many relevant countries have formulated rules for sea and air encounters, these are to avoid unnecessary dangers during encounters.
A fierce confrontation between China and the United States will be an unbearable pain for the world
Li Shangfu delivered a speech on the topic of "China's New Security Initiative" at the 20th Shangri-La Dialogue yesterday. According to CCTV reports, when it comes to Sino-US relations, he said that Sino-US relations are related to global strategic stability and are also the focus of attention of all countries.
Li Shangfu said that China believes that China and the United States should live up to expectations and follow the trend of the times. The significance of Sino-US relations has long gone beyond bilateral relations and has global influence. The international community generally hopes for the healthy and stable development of Sino-US relations, and worries about conflicts and confrontations. It is undeniable that if there is a fierce conflict and confrontation between China and the United States, it will be an unbearable pain for the world. China believes that a big country should behave like a big country, and should not provoke confrontation between camps for temporary selfishness. It should take into account the overall situation, resolve differences through exchanges and cooperation, and respond to the expectations of various countries. History should not be forgotten and lessons learned.
Li Shangfu pointed out that China and the United States have different systems and great differences, but this does not prevent the two sides from seeking common ground while reserving differences to develop bilateral relations, nor does it prevent the two sides from deepening cooperation based on common interests. History has proved time and again that China and the United States both benefit from cooperation and lose from confrontation. China has been seeking to establish a new type of major-country relationship with the United States, but this requires the United States to show sincerity, match words with deeds, and take practical actions to meet China halfway, so as to promote the stabilization of the relationship between the two countries and the two militaries. Find a way to get along without fear of difficulties. In the past few years, Sino-US relations have hovered at a low point after the establishment of diplomatic relations. Everyone knows the reasons for this difficult situation. The world is big enough to accommodate the common development of countries in the region, including China and the United States. The three principles of mutual respect, peaceful coexistence, and win-win cooperation are the correct way for China and the United States to get along with each other.
Countries outside the region try to disrupt the South China Sea for profit
Regarding the South China Sea issue, Li Shangfu said in his speech that with the joint efforts of countries in the region, the situation in the South China Sea is generally stable and exchanges and cooperation are deepening. At present, tens of thousands of ships from various countries pass through the South China Sea every year, and the total value of goods transported to the world is as high as 3.5 trillion U.S. dollars. It has never been heard of a ship whose passage is blocked or its safety is threatened. On the contrary, some countries outside the region are exercising "navigation hegemony" in the name of "navigation freedom". They want to disrupt the South China Sea for profit. We need to be highly vigilant and resolutely resist.
Li Shangfu said that it is normal for neighbors to have differences, and everyone is communicating and negotiating to resolve them properly. However, some countries outside the region are sowing discord behind their backs. We must distinguish between interests and remain sober. China is willing to join hands with countries in the region to fully and effectively implement the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea, actively promote consultations on the Code of Conduct in the South China Sea, and jointly build the South China Sea into a sea of peace, friendship and development.
The Asia-Pacific does not need to form cliques and "cliques"
Li Shangfu also pointed out that facts have proved that wherever the hand of hegemonism and power politics is extended, there will be no peace and wars will abound. China believes that only by respecting each other and treating each other as equals can we live in harmony. Resolutely oppose imposing one's will on others, putting one's own interests above others, and basing one's own safety on the insecurity of others. Some countries wantonly meddle in other countries' internal affairs and regional affairs, resort to unilateral sanctions, force coercion, launch "color revolutions" and proxy wars everywhere, mess up a region and then walk away, leaving a mess. We must not let this happen Things are being replicated in the Asia-Pacific.
He said that some major powers once again proposed the so-called "Indo-Pacific strategy". China believes that no matter what the strategy is, it should not draw lines based on ideology and use so-called "imaginary threats" to build exclusive military alliances, otherwise it will easily fall into a "self-fulfilling prophecy." Attempts to promote "NATOization of the Asia-Pacific" are essentially kidnapping regional countries and exaggerating conflicts and confrontations, which will only plunge the Asia-Pacific into a vortex of division, disputes and conflicts. History has proved that bloc politics and division and confrontation will not bring real security, but will only aggravate tension and undermine regional stability. What is needed in today's Asia-Pacific is an open and inclusive "big cooperation", not a "small circle" formed by cliques.
In addition, at the Shangri-La Dialogue, Li Shangfu also mentioned the lyrics of an old song "My Motherland" widely sung in China: "When a friend comes, there is good wine. If the jackal comes, there is someone who welcomes it." Shotgun!"
The Chinese army is not afraid of any opponent
Chinese State Councilor and Defense Minister Li Shangfu said at the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore yesterday that if someone dares to separate Taiwan from China, the Chinese military will not hesitate in the slightest, will not be afraid of any opponent, and will resolutely safeguard the country no matter how much it costs. sovereignty and territorial integrity.
China must be unified and must be unified
According to CCTV reports, regarding the Taiwan issue, Li Shangfu said in his speech at the Shangri-La Dialogue that the Taiwan issue is the core of China's core interests, the Taiwan issue is China's internal affairs, and the one-China principle has become a recognized basic norm of international relations. Any act that blurs or hollows out the one-China principle is absurd and dangerous.
Li Shangfu said that the world can see very clearly that the DPP authorities "coerce foreign powers to seek independence" and external forces "use Taiwan to control China" to interfere in China's internal affairs are the root causes of tension in the Taiwan Strait and the biggest trouble in changing the status quo of the Taiwan Strait maker.
Li Shangfu said that China must be unified, and it will inevitably be unified. This is the aspiration of the people and the trend of the times. We are willing to strive for peaceful reunification with the greatest sincerity and best efforts, but we will never promise to renounce the use of force. If someone dares to separate Taiwan from China, the Chinese military will not hesitate in the slightest, and will not be afraid of any opponent. No matter what the price is, the Chinese military will resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity.
[Expert Interpretation] China's attitude is resolutely beyond the past
Wang Yong, a professor at the School of International Relations at Peking University and director of the Center for American Studies at Peking University, pointed out to Hong Kong Wen Wei Po that State Councilor and Defense Minister Li Shangfu fully demonstrated the firm determination of the Chinese military to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity during the Shangri-La Dialogue, showing that China In order to safeguard the core interests of Taiwan, the core Taiwan issue is not hesitant to fight. If someone dares to split Taiwan, I believe that the Chinese military will never hesitate. The expert believes that China's statement is more resolute than in the past, and it should be aimed at the current US stepping up its deployment in the Taiwan Strait.
The US security order is an exclusive security order
According to Wang Yong's analysis, China and the United States have different views and opinions on the security order in the Asia-Pacific region. China advocates cooperation among major powers and coordinates a new security concept of mutual benefit and common security among regional countries. This is completely different from the so-called liberal international order advocated by the United States and its so-called leadership responsibilities in the Indo-Pacific region. Wang Yong pointed out that the essence of the security order in the United States is to maintain its own hegemony, to engage in "small circles", and to create an exclusive security order.
Recently, the U.S. side has made frequent announcements, expressing the obvious willingness of several government officials to visit China. According to reports, the Assistant Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs in East Asia and the Pacific will visit China on the 4th. Wang Yong believes that, as China has repeatedly emphasized, the most important thing in the future is that the United States should change its strategic perception of China, correctly understand China's rise, respect China's core interests, and not play the Taiwan card or "use Taiwan to control China."
The United States must truly respect China's core interests
Regarding the direction of Sino-US relations in the next step, Wang Yong believes that the next step in Sino-US relations is expected to usher in opportunities for adjustment and improvement. He said that if Sino-U.S. relations continue to develop along the line that the U.S. side was too tough before, it may eventually lead to tragic results. And results that the international community does not want to see. However, how China-US relations will go next depends on the determination of the US government.
Wang Yong emphasized that what the U.S. government should do now is to truly respect China's core interests, truly match words with deeds, and focus on cooperation in areas where the two sides can cooperate, so as to jointly benefit the two peoples and at the same time help maintain regional peace. and stability.
Wang Yong believes that Sino-U.S. relations may be facing the last window to improve relations before the U.S. election. China and the U.S. now have many common interests. As long as the two sides seize this opportunity, gradually resume dialogue and gradually build consensus during the dialogue, The relationship between China and the United States is still expected to recover from the decline, thereby avoiding the path of conflict and war.
