2023.03.20 23:35 PeachLegitimate7312 I cannot stop thinking about this girl and cant figure out if she likes me back. What do I do!!

This is my first post ever, and probably my last. I need advice from random people on the internet and not my friends. I am a junior in high school. I have been taking spanish for three years now. It is a very little class and we barely learn anything, we usually will all just talk. I am a very shy guy and do not come out of my bubble that much at school. In this class however, I have been able to be more out there after being with the same people in that class for so long. The girl in question is in this class as well as another girl. The three of us had another class outside of spanish together. At some point in that class, we had to do a project outside of the school last November. So, we all decided to pair up and make a day out of it. I was already catching feelings before this project, but after we hung out that day, I knew I really liked her. Since then, we all talk at school and sometimes in a group chat. Last weekend, we all hung out again. I had a blast and that Saturday went by so fast. We hung out all day. We all went to the movies and then to a food place and then back to one of their houses. I was trying to find signals all day from her. I have never been one to make a move on a girl and if I was to, it would be my first time. Some of the signals have been: her looking at me often, asking me if I wanted a kiss (literally) when I had hersheys kiss in my hand lmao, she called me a name that means sexy from a movie, in a playful manner and I do not know if she meant it, and she laughs at a lot of what I say. Problem is that she is just overall a very nice person and idk what to make of how she treats me vs other people. Another issue is the two times (and there is going to be a third btw already on our spring break) we have hung out, it is always with another girl and I am to scared to ask just her to hang out. I feel like if I was to ask just her to hang out, she would feel bad about the other girl and want to include her, which I would feel kind of bad too, but i really like this girl and want to hang out with her everyday. WHAT DO I DO!!!!

2023.03.20 23:34 El-Tigre-Chino- HONOURED ONE MILESTONE CONTEST - A Filmmaker's Lament.

My CT (which is in a constant state of change due to my obsesiveness with coming up with the perfect ability) revolves around two of the things I'm most passionate about, movies and space (mainly shown in the technique through it's gravity related abilities). The ability is divided into three stages: Pre-production, Production/Filming, and Post-production/Release,. They go in order but the user may rush through the phases (explained in each phase how it works), though abilities from one phase can only be used for it's duration.


The user can stay in this stage for an indefinite amount of time, but in order to pass to "Filming", he has to use all of the abilities listed in this stage to set up "a good movie", which is decided by a shikigami in the shape of a tiny flying clown carrying a clipboard (think Kite's Crazy Slot clown from HxH) nicknamed "Charlatan Kauff". This phase has good enough attack capabilities to start a fight and has a lot of useful tricks.


In this phase the shikigami changes to now hold a film camera, being nicknamed "Cronen". When the user produces enough "movie" moments (cool kills, fight sequences, good shots, etc) the phase progresses. These moments are caught by Cronen, who reviews them instantly to decide if they are up to the standards of the movie. If so, the phase progresses to Post even if the user would rather it not. This phase is for direct fighting, mainly medium distance to long, though the user may attack physically of course.


In this stage, the shikigami changes to now hold an award of itself made of gold, it's name now being "Eberitus". This stage isn't designed for fighting, mainly revolves around evasion and healing.

Let me know what you guys think, tried to play with stages and randomness (with the ratings, though they are not strictly random) to balance the CT out with conditions, so that I could include all the diferent aspects of diferent abilities that I wanted.

2023.03.20 23:33 artemis_dong Vosteed, Kizer, CJRB, QSP, Gerber

Payment in PayPal F&F only. NO NOTES. Shipping to CONUS only. Only trade interests are P365/AR parts.
Vosteed Valkyrie 154CM harpoon/seax blade in black G10. Cool ass knife. Previous owner acid-washed the blade, liners, and clip. Has been sharpened. Fantastic action, no lock stick. Comes with box and papers. $60
Kizer Grazioso N690 satin blade in micarta/brass. Catch and release. Never carried/cut anything by me, though it's clearly used. Gorgeous knife. Modern Buck 110 vibes. Guillotine-like action. Looks to be factory edge but it's hard to tell. Some wear on brass bits. No box or papers. $45
CJRB Pyrite ARPM9 stonewashed blade in stainless steel. Carried a handful of times. Cut some boxes here and there. Factory edge. Great action though there is a tiny bit of lock stick. Comes with box and papers. $35
QSP Penguin D2 dark stonewashed blade in shredded red carbon fiber. The knife that restarted my knife addiction. So good for the price. Carried a handful of times and eviscerated some Amazon boxes. Smooth action and drops shut. Comes with box and papers. $25
(2) Gerber Slimsada D2 stonewashed blade in green micarta. So initially I had an older Slimsada. I wanted to do some maintenance on it but one of the pocket clip screws stripped out so I contacted Gerber for new screws. Instead they just sent me a new replacement Slimsada. Both are on sale! The older one has been carried quite a few times and been resharpened. Signs of wear apparent (along with the aforementioned stripped screw). The newer Slimsada is LNIB, just took it out and fidgeted with. I like the micarta lock bar stop, helps with reverse flicking quite a bit. Action isn't great on either and both blades favor the clip side in centering. Both have boxes, only LNIB one has papers. LNIB Slimsada: $35 // old Slimsada: $20

2023.03.20 23:33 throwaway-98765- Is all hope lost?

28 HLM and wife 28LLF together for ten years. Over this period the sex in the relationship has started to disappear for the past 4 years I thought it was just a faze but no it’s gone from every day to maybe, once at the weekend maybe even once a month at times . It’s always me who seems interested and initiates the sex. I could tell you what’s going to happen, me to 100% of the work she was an organism and then it’s hurry up and you finish. I’ve tried to talk about and trying new things, asked what do you like to do? What’s your fantasies? but the conversation get changed rapid. I’m very open person who’s willing to try everything at least once. We have spoken about it in the past. No change.
But last night I tried it on to be rejected nothing out of the ordinary but something hit me I got all quiet and was holding back the tears. She was asking what’s wrong. I said it’s really Shit how you hold all the power and no matter what my feeling are I can’t do anything about it and I’ve just go to keep being rejected, pushed away and hope my lotto number come up. She burst out laughing and said you worded that funny. I Was gob smacked. She roll over and went to sleep. I got up and went to the bath room. Had a few man tears.
This bed room stuff really plays on your head. Never felt to worthless and to be fair my confidence is awful. Outside the bed room we carry a really healthy lifestyle go to the local pub with friends, movie nights, date nights most weeks, Own a house together no money issues. I’m just lost on what do next. I won’t be winning no award for my writing ability

2023.03.20 23:32 wildstrawbrries I keep telling myself I’m fine on my own until I move but I’m just so lonely

I live in the Midwest and I’m in my first year of college. I lost my best friend before my senior year of high school, so ever since then it’s been incredibly difficult for me to commit to making friends. I have friendly acquaintances and I really like my roommate, but I don’t actively hang out with anyone. I do homework, watch movies and get stoned most of the time.
Next year after I finish up my second year in the spring, I’m planning to work in the summer then move to Orlando so I can move in with my boyfriend and his roommates, we’ve had this plan for a while now. Because I’m eventually moving, I’ve been telling myself that I’ll be fine if I don’t make any friends for the next two years, that I’ll be in good company eventually. But I can’t contain it anymore. I don’t wanna say I’m miserable, but I’m just sad and bored most of the time. I crave someone to talk to and I find myself having crying fits a lot. It gets so lonely and it’s times like these where I just really want a hug.
I miss my best friend really bad. I hate that it’s been almost over two years but ever since then it’s like I’ve lost trust in any potential friend. He wasn’t the best guy and I’m better off without him in my life because of what he did, so I know better than to reach out to him and see how he’s doing, but I miss the good times we had together. That, or I just miss the feeling of having a best friend.
My boyfriend is also my best friend of course, and I’ll always love calling him and talking to him, but he has a best friend who he isn’t dating. I don’t have that. I want a best friend who I can invite to my dorm and hang out with. I just want someone here, next to me, who can listen to me and who I can listen to. I want that platonic connection again. I get so worried about draining my boyfriend because he’s the only person I can go to for venting, and if I went to him every time I needed to vent I’d be going to him almost everyday.
I don’t know. It gets so stressful here and I hate being so sad all the time. I’ve never wanted a hug so bad. I’ve been having so much stuff concerning my home life happen too with my sister falling and needing surgery and now my grandma needing it too. There’s just so much at once and I want a shoulder to cry on. Everything hurts so bad and I’m struggling so much, I’m trying to hold out until Orlando but sometimes I just want to give up and give in. I’m so tired

2023.03.20 23:32 Xavilend Upgrading from my Creative Theater to Audeze LCD-2 Closed Back, need amp advice

My Theater were wonderful, but I'm on my third set in 3 years, keep wearing them out it seems. Got a set of LCD-2 Closed Back ( on the way now, but wondered if my little SXFI Type-C Amp will be enough to power it, or if I should get one of their more potent models like the Sound Blaster X4, or the AE-9 sound card, as I'd like to retain SXFI processing for movies.
Thanks in advance.

2023.03.20 23:32 Kokibuchek Starwars was better when George Lucas owned it.

As much as people like harking on the guy, he was in fact pretty liberal when it came to letting anybody play around and expand the lore of his creation.
Remember when you would see Starwars parodies in everything from The Simpsons to Family Guy?
Remember how Starwars was parodied all the time in Robot Chicken?
Remember when Seth Green had an entire first season of a lighthearted parody series based on the original trilogy called "Starwars Detours"? Which was promptly canceled as soon as the Mouse House got their greasy cheese encrusted rodent appendages on the IP?
Remember when the game license wasn't monopolized by giving it to EA? Which led to almost a decade of shitty loot box riddled battlefie- sorry, "reskinned battlefield games" AKA Battlefront, that totally gutted the best content of the beloved originals?
And then for the hell of it, they completely kiboshed the entire expanded universe, which sure, it made way for some pretty whacky and outlandish lore, but also provided some of the coolest stories that enhanced alot of existing lore (Plagueis, Bane Trilogy, Thrawn etc.)
I'll always count my blessings with shows like Andor, and Mando, but I'll always mourn what could have been. The sequel trilogy had so much potential too... Great characters, practical explosions, fresh new actors who delivered on screen...
But no, they had to turn a profit ASAP, and rushed the whole thing in the beginning, and not for the fans...
It was for the shareholders, they wanted there 7 billion + profits before supper time.
Fuck Disney

2023.03.20 23:29 TheCyberTronn 24 [M4F] London/UK - Looking for love, the long way round!

Hey! I'm Michael, I'm 24, and I'm from Watford (just outside of London) in the UK. I'm 6'0, with long brown hair, a lovely bushy beard, and I'm almost at the end of my weight loss journey! If you wanna have a look for yourself, here's what I look like! I've tried probably all of the dating apps, and they've never found me anything meaningful, so I wanna give this a shot. You can either shoot me a message through Reddit, or DM me on Instagram (linked above).
About me: I work for an indie publisher in the games industry, so of course I love video games! Although I don't have too much time to play them these days, I still make time for a game or two of Dota. Beyond that, I love spending time with friends IRL, down the pub or just hanging out, I write poetry and fiction (some of which you can find here), and sometimes, when I'm really in the mood, I'll spend a weekend just coding something for fun. I spend a lot of time writing, be it words or code, and there's a peace to it I really enjoy. As for media, I'm big into Doctor Who and that whole universe, I recently discovered Community on Netflix (and it's phenomenal), and sometimes I watch half-a-day-long video essays on YouTube about topics I don't particularly care about, but somehow it's still fascinating? I love the work of Donald GloveChildish Gambino and Post Malone. Also I'm super 420 friendly :)
About you: I'm looking to find a meaningful connection with someone, hopefully someone local to the London or Hertfordshire area of the UK, but my DMs are open to ladies everywhere! I'm not really too picky about looks - I think people across the entire spectrum of humanity can be beautiful, so what I'm really looking for is your personality. I'm looking for someone passionate about the things that they do and the people in their life, because I think that's what life is about. It's certainly something I try to live. I'd love to hear all about your current hyperfixation, or something cool you've done recently, or even just something that made you smile today! I'm open to video/voice calls too once we've got to know each other a little.
Feel free to shoot me a message through Reddit, or DM me on Instagram at the topmost link in this post, I'd love to hear from you!!

2023.03.20 23:26 Weekly_Software_4049 New tech needs some guidance, did my roommate get ripped off or did I just miss something?

I am a ford tech (green, less than a year) and my roommate’s honda civic had a rotational noise in the front at speeds of 28mph and 56mph. I took it to work instead of my own car and looked it over on my break. Took some hard turns at the speeds it made noise to give me an idea of whether or not it might be a wheel bearing, the noise didn’t change turning left or right. I lifted the car and gave the wheel a pretty hearty wiggle and couldn’t get any movement on any axis. Had the car running in the air with our lube tech inside and had him take the car to 28mph and put my stethoscope to the hub and both sides sounded the same, trans was noisy but I have no idea what a honda trans would typically sound like. I had him take it in to a nearby honda dealership because I wasn’t going to do any more digging for free. They replaced the right front wheel bearing and my roommate was told by the writer that the tech didn’t even need to drive it because the wheel was very loose when he lifted it and gave it a wiggle. There was only about 20 miles difference on the car between when I looked at it and they got to it. I noticed they also did a trans service with a note that the level was significantly overfilled on arrival.
Is it possible that the overfilled transmission was causing the noise, suggesting the wheel bearing wasn’t needed? I’ve correctly diagnosed at least a dozen wheel bearings by now and can’t imagine this snuck by me but I have not done much transmission work and never touched a transaxle like his honda has. More concerned that I could have/would have misdiagnosed the car than my buddy got ripped off, he has an aftermarket warranty and only paid a small copay.

2023.03.20 23:25 anon042421 Sobrang swinerte naman yata ako sa jowa????? (VERY LONG)

Kagagaling ko lang sa iyak. Not because nasaktan ako, but because sobrang naooverwhelm ako sa love and happiness na dulot ng bf ko. Ang saya saya ko naiyak nalang talagq ako sa tuwa HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Mahaba to. Sobra. So buckle up.
Back story on how we started: My Bf and I (both are 23) have been friends for a long time, we met nung 2015 thru my best friend tapos naging super close nung 2019? 2020?. All our interactions were thru chat kasi I'm not the type of person na lalabas para makipagkwentuhan. Actually, on off yung interactions namin nun kasi madalas ako maubusan ng social battery. Pero sobrang nag kick off talaga yung friendship namin nung 2019-2020. I'm extremely introverted, bilang lang sa isang kamay yung mga close friends ko. Plus, I'm socially anxious din kaya lahat ng maging kaclose ko, pinapahalagahan ko talaga. We bonded over shared interests. Youtube, anime, art, music, at marami lang iba. We also think alike and reaaally get along well.
What happened is it turns out, matagal na pala siyang may gusto sakin. He's been giving out obvious signals na he likes me pero I was EXTREMELY dense. Hanggang ngayon, pag naaalala niya, nafru-frustrate parin siya. "TANGINA. ANG HIRAP MO SOBRA. DI KO NA ALAM PANO GAGAWIN SAYO. BAKIT HINDI MO NAGEGETS.".
In my defense naman, NBSB ako, I haven't been romantically involved with anyone. I'd rather hole up in my room, magpakalunod sa hobbies ko than to make social interactions. Resulta neto is wala akong exposure sa ligawan or love signals or romantic social cues. (Kaya socially anxious rin ako kasi wala ako masyadong naging exposure. Di na nga ako marunong makipagkaibigan eh.)
Next reason why I didn't notice or suspect is because akala ko friendly lang talaga siya HAHHAAHAHAHAH. Dito siya pinaka badtrip. Eh kasi naman napaka extrovert niya. Ang ingay niya sa social media tapos laging ang daming kausap. Ang daming kaibigan. Ang daming kabiruan. Parang lahat yata ng tao kinakausap niya? So I thought, super friendly lang talaga siya. Nung naging kami at pinakita niya sakin at inexplain yung mga hints niya, I told him akala ko ganun talaga makipagsocialize mga tao. Lalo na siya. Akala ko talaga mga biro. Malay ko, I don't know how popular people socialize nor interact with each other. Nanghuhula lang talaga ako. I'm not the type na mag-assume din naman kasi who am I to assume na sa dami ng friends niya, ako magugustuhan niya. Btw, hindi ako maganda ha? Hindi ako drop-dead-gorgeous-very-mahal-ni-lord-type-wattpad-main-character. I'm actually very average looking.
Last reason, (yata?) Is coz he was publicly honest na he used to be in love with a girl and he wrote one of his songs, thinking about her (Musician siya btw) Shini-ship pa sila ng mga tao. Muling ibalik daw. Funny things is, isa rin ako sa mga shipper HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA. GANDA NUNG KANTA EH. TAPOS BASED FROM TRUE LOVE STORY? SHEEESH. Pero wala na talaga silang special relationship. He was hung up for a long time pero he moved on na daw. As in zero feelings na daw. Friends nalang talaga. Yan sabi niya sakin nung sinasabihan ko siya na why hindi nalang sila magbalikan. Hindi pala naging sila, hanggang MU lang. (Ako talaga naging first gf) Edi kung hindi naging sila edi ituloy, ganun, sabi ko. HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA
Ay may isa rin pala siya naging ka MU ulit. 2020 to nung naging close kami. Gumive up siya sakin kasi wala daw talagang sign of budging galing sakin. Para daw akong mataas na bundok na kailangan akyatin. Sa totoo lang, nagtampo ako nung nakahanap siya ng bebe nun eh. Kasi nung kinongratulate ko siya na may bebe na siya nung miny-day niya, hindi manlang siya nagreply. Hineart lang message ko amputa. I was expecting na k-kwento niya pano nagkakilala, ganun, blah blah. NOTHING. Akala ko pamandin, I was one of his close friends na pagk-kwentuhan ng mga ganung bagay. Apparently, I wasn't close enough pala. Nalungkot ako sobra. I FELT SO BETRAAAAYED. Yung tipong akala mo best friend mo tapos ikaw pala hindi bestfriend HAHAHAHHAHAHAHA. Hindi na rin kami masyadong nag-uusap nun. Hinayaan ko na rin kasi syempre busy siya sa ka MU niya. APPARENTLY, kaya ganun naging treatment niya sakin is because masama loob niya kasi ako naman daw talaga gusto niya pero para akong bato. Syempre he tried to not talk to me kasi he was already entertaining another girl. Unfair yun para sa girl, and I agree. Well, that relationship DID NOT last. SOBRANG TOXIC PALA NI ATE GUUURL. BF knew better and noped out of that situation real fast. With respect of course. Kaya ayun, more interaction ulit kami.
So you may think, "kung hirap na hirap na siya, bakit hindi nalang siya directly umamin sayo?" Answer is, natatakot daw siya sobra HAHAHHAHAHAHAHA kasi daw nagk-kwento ako sakanya about sa mga guys na nagtangkang lumapit but were brutally rejected. I was firm kasi na ayoko pa pumasok sa relasyon. And them dudes were not worth changing my mind. College to eh, ewan ko, bigla siguro akong nagbloom kaya may mga lumalapit na. Pero ayun na nga. Natakot sa rejection. He didn't wanna try risking the friendship din daw. Sabi ko grabe naman, if he confessed, at nireject ko siya, I won't stop being friends with him naman no. Sabi niya, kahit na. Kasi daw pag narejct, wala na daw talagang pag-asa. Kaya he kept on making hints nalang kahit hindi gumagana.
One day (beginning ng pandemic), he uploaded a demo song and sobrang nagandahan ako. He said na wala lang daw yun, demo lang na natripan niya gawin. I begged him to continue the song kasi oh my gosh yung melody, yung composition, ang ganda. And so he did. Inuupdate nyako sa process at sobrang manghang mangha ako. Lagi kami magka call nun sa discord. (Nagstart mag discord kasi sabi ko dun nalang. Mas maganda kaysa messenger.) He even told me that the song is now based sa artist name ko and sa comic ko noon. Nah, he lied. Based talaga sakin. Pero ako namang si tanga, tuwang tuwa, naniwala na doon niya binase. Matagal nakong fan ng music niya. Aware ako na super talented siya. Di man siya kasing sikat ng mainstream artists like JK or Zack Tabudlo, his songs are still as good para sakin. Now, being involved in the process of him writing that song, (hindi naman invloved, more like updated) I started admiring him even more. Kinilig rin yata ako sa lyrics ng song.
Then I started to feel like he has a thing for me. Kasi sobrang bait, sobrang supportive, sobrang attentive na niya sakin. Super ready tumulong pag may need ako, like andiyan siya agad. To the point na napaisip nalang ako, pang friends lang ba talaga yung ganitong treatment? Hinayaan ko nalang. And then out of nowhere, I just asked him "may balak ka bang ipursue ako?" Wala na siya nagawa at umamin nalang. He said yes, he really really likes me. And so I made an impulsive decision of asking of starting a relationship with him. Walang ligaw ligaw. Walang kahit ano. Kami na. I really like him as a person din naman. He's like a walking green flag HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I trusted my character judgement and our long-time friendship and sailed with it.
Fast forward po sa ngayon na nag-iiyak nga ako sa tuwa HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Kanina kasi, Sobrang nalulungkot lang ako sa life situation ko kaya sobrang namiss ko siya kasi he was my comfort talaga. Nagkita kami the day before pero nagcrave talaga ako ng presence niya bigla. I was even grumbling like a kid kanina. It was already 12 am pero I asked him to come. Di naman ganun kalayo bahay nila pero far enuff na need ng vehicle. He was planning on riding his bike kaso ang dami daw aso sa kalsada kaya nag angkas nalang siya. Kaso lang din, walang tumatanggap tapos it was already 2am. (Night owl kami ha.) Sabi ko wag nalang, izokay. Pero he insisted, may tumanggap, then he came. Tumambay lang kami sa labas ng bahay, kwentuhan, and then he gave me that tight hug and lambing na hinihingi ko sa kanya. Umuwi siya around 3:30am. Tapos he chatted me nung nakauwi na siya. I thanked him sa pagpunta niya just to satisfy my whim. He said he'll do everything. Everytime. For me. GAGSTI, TANGGAL ANGAS KO. IYAK TALAGA AKO EH HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Btw lagi niyang ginagawa to ha. Legit yung anytime (except pag tulog). Naiyak lang siguro ako talaga ngayon kasi I was going thru something.
I remember one time, I didn't eat dinner pa and it was late and I didn't feel like cooking kasi I was really really down. 2 am, nagluto siya, then biked to deliver that lunchbox contaning what he cooked, then left. I ate that food while bawling like a child. I ate every single bit of rice and ate that salty ass egg deliciously. Pati yung sunog na bawang sa fried rice, kinain ko HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
He would happily, genuinely, and wholeheartedly do whatever I request from him. No thinking, no questions asked. Stay up. Watch a movie. Tell a story. Blow dry my hair. Help me write a story. Kahit ano.
Wala siyang bisyo like smoking or drinking. I, on the otherhand, occassionally drink. Kaya nung sobrang nalasing ako at nagsusuka, at nag-iiiyak kasi nandun yung friend namin na ex rin ng best friend ko na nakipaghiwalay sa kanya kasi daw hahanapin sarili tapos pinagsisigawan ko ng "HAHANAPIN SARILI?!?!?! BOBO KA BA?!?! AMBOBO?!?!?!?! MIDTERMS NIYA NUN TAPOS GAGANYANIN MO?!?!?! GAGO KA BA?!??!?!" (I regretted this and said sorry many times. First time kong malasing ng ganun at nadala ng emosyon. Naka move on na rin naman na kasi lahat. Bigla lang bumalik HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA). So ayun na nga, todo bantay at asikaso siya sakin nun and also stayed up to clean up all the mess kasi siya lang talaga di umiinom. Tapos mapapagalitan talaga ako sa kalat namin kasi samin kami uminom. He didn't want that kaya naglinis talaga siya. And he went home, may araw na, with no sleep. Kasi binantayan din niya ako sa kwarto dahil humihikbi parin ako at ang daldal ko.
He knows I have an anonymous reddit account pero ayaw niyang alamin anong user id ko. Gusto daw niya na maging 100% anonymous ako para I can say or share whatever I want. If may gusto naman daw ako ishare sa kanya, magsasabi ako. STILL, IF U HAPPEN TO READ THIS, MALALAMAN MO AGAD NA AKO TO KAYA HEMLO, AWABYU AND I APPRECIATE YOU SO MUCH ULIT 🩵🩵🩵

2023.03.20 23:24 FozzTexx 2023 Mar 20 Stickied -FAQ- & -HELPDESK- thread - Boot problems? Power supply problems? Display problems? Networking problems? Need ideas? Get help with these and other questions!

Welcome to the raspberry_pi Helpdesk and Frequently Asked Questions!

Link to last week's thread
Having a hard time searching for answers to your Raspberry Pi questions? Let the raspberry_pi community members search for answers for you! Looking for help getting started with a project? Have a question that you need answered? Was it not answered last week? Did not get a satisfying answer? A question that you've only done basic research for? Maybe something you think everyone but you knows? Ask your question here, operators are standing by!
This helpdesk and idea thread is here so that the front page won't be filled with these same questions day in and day out:
  1. Q: What's a Raspberry Pi? What can I do with it? How powerful is it? A: Check out this great overview
  2. Q: Does anyone have any ideas for what I can do with my Pi? A: Sure, look right here!
  3. Q: My Pi is behaving strangely/crashing/freezing, giving low voltage warnings, ethernet/wifi stops working, USB devices don't behave correctly, what do I do? A:. 99.999% of the time it's either a bad SD card or power problems. Use a USB power meter or measure the 5V on the GPIO pins with a multimeter while the Pi is busy (such as playing h265/x265 video) and/or get a new SD card. If the voltage is less than 5V your power supply and/or cabling is not adequate. When your Pi is doing lots of work it will draw more power. Even if your power supply claims to provide sufficient amperage, it may be mislabeled or the cable you're using to connect the power supply to the Pi may have too much resistance. You can use a USB load tester to test your power supply and cable. Some power supplies require negotiation to use the higher amperage, which the Pi does not do. If you're plugging in USB devices try using a powered USB hub with its own power supply and plug your devices into the hub and plug the hub into the Pi.
  4. Q: Due to the chip shortage I'm having a hard time buying a Raspberry Pi, all the stores say sold out. Even after the most recent announcement from Raspberry Pi they are still hard to find. Where's the secret place to buy one without paying more than MSRP? A:
  5. Q: I just did a fresh install with the latest Raspberry Pi OS and the default usepassword of pi/raspberry doesn't work for ssh or logging in, why not? A: The default pi user no longer exists, you need to create your own account
  6. Q: The screen is just black or blank or saying no signal, what do I do? A: Follow these steps
  7. Q: The only way to troubleshoot my problem is using a multimeter but I don't have one. What can I do? A: Get a basic multimeter, they are not expensive.
  8. Q: My Pi won't boot, how do I fix it? A: Step by step guide for boot problems
  9. Q: I want to watch Netflix/Hulu/Amazon/Vudu/Disney+ on a Pi but the tutorial I followed didn't work, does someone have a working tutorial? A: Use a Fire Stick/AppleTV/Roku. Pi tutorials used tricks that no longer work or are fake click bait.
  10. Q: What model of Raspberry Pi do I need so I can watch YouTube in a browser? A: No model of Raspberry Pi is capable of watching YouTube smoothly through a web browser, you need to use VLC.
  11. Q: I want to know how to do a thing, not have a blog/tutorial/video/teachebook explain how to do a thing. Can someone explain to me how to do that thing? A: Uh... What?
  12. Q: Is it possible to use a single Raspberry Pi to do multiple things? Can a Raspberry Pi run Pi-hole and something else at the same time? A: YES. Pi-hole uses almost no resources. You can run Pi-hole at the same time on a Pi running Minecraft which is one of the biggest resource hogs. The Pi is capable of multitasking and can run more than one program and service at the same time. (Also known as "workload consolidation" by Intel people.) You're not going to damage your Pi by running too many things at once, so try running all your programs before worrying about needing more processing power or multiple Pis.
  13. Q: Why is transferring things over the LAN/internet so slow? A: If you have a Pi 4 with SSD, please check this post on the Pi forums. Otherwise it's a networking problem and/or disk & filesystem problem, please go to HomeNetworking or LinuxQuestions.
  14. Q: I only have one outlet and I need to plug in several devices, what do I do? A: They make things called power strips aka multi-tap extensions.
  15. Q: The red and green LEDs are on/off/blinking but it doesn't work, can someone help me? A: Start here
  16. Q: I'm trying to run x86 software on my Raspberry Pi but it doesn't work, how do I fix it? A: Get an x86 computer. A Raspberry Pi is ARM based, not x86.
  17. Q: Should I add a heatsink, fan, or some kind of cooling to my Raspberry Pi? A: If you think you need one then you should add it
  18. Q: Can I use this screen that came from ____ ? A: No
  19. Q: I run my Pi headless and there's a problem with my Pi and the best way to diagnose it or fix it is to plug in a monitor & keyboard, what do I do? A: Plug in a monitor & keyboard.
  20. Q: My Pi seems to be causing interference preventing the WiFi from working A. Using USB 3 cables that are not properly shielded can cause interference and the Pi 4 can also cause interference when HDMI is used at high resolutions.
  21. Q: I'm trying to use the built-in composite video output that is available on the Pi 2/3/4 headphone jack, do I need a special cable? A. Make sure your cable is wired correctly and you are using the correct RCA plug. Composite video cables for mp3 players will not work, the common ground goes to the wrong pin. Camcorder cables will often work, but red and yellow will be swapped on the Raspberry Pi.
  22. Q: I'm running my Pi with no monitor connected, how can I use VNC? A: First, do you really need a remote GUI? Try using ssh instead. If you're sure you want to access the GUI remotely then ssh in, type vncserver -depth 24 -geometry 1920x1080 and see what port it prints such as :1, :2, etc. Now connect your client to that.
  23. Q: I want to do something that has been well documented and there are numerous tutorials showing how to do it on Linux. How can I do it on a Raspberry Pi? A: A Raspberry Pi is a full computer running Linux and doesn't use special stripped down embedded microcontroller versions of standard Linux software. Follow one of the tutorials for doing it on Linux. Also see question #1.
  24. Q: I want to do something that has been well documented and there are numerous tutorials showing how to do it with an Arduino. How can I do it on a Raspberry Pi Pico? A: Follow one of the tutorials for doing it on Arduino, a Pico can be used with the Arduino IDE.
  25. Q: I'm trying to do something with Bluetooth and it's not working, how do I fix it? A: It's well established that Bluetooth and Linux don't get along, this problem is not unique to the Raspberry Pi.
Before posting your question think about if it's really about the Raspberry Pi or not. If you were using a Raspberry Pi to display recipes, do you really think raspberry_pi is the place to ask for cooking help? There may be better places to ask your question, such as:
Asking in a forum more specific to your question will likely get better answers!
See the /raspberry_pi rules. While /raspberry_pi should not be considered your personal search engine, some exceptions will be made in this help thread. ‡ If the link doesn't work it's because you're using a broken buggy mobile client. Please contact the developer of your mobile client and let them know they should fix their bug. In the meantime use a web browser in desktop mode instead.

2023.03.20 23:23 lucader881 Isekai of the Ultimate Ritualist - Chapter 44

First Previous Next
There, beyond the mighty door, another world opened before their eyes. It was a world of cog and wheels, of halogen lights and of steam, where pistons and brass pipes were a part of the architecture just as much as stone or brick, if not more. The floors were uneven plates of rusted, corrugated metal worn down by the centuries and corroded by humidity, and the lights embedded in the walls were faint and strained to keep shining, their light also a hum that filled the spaces with noise. There was a gash in the ceiling, a wide aperture from where a ray of white moonlight shone in an inner garden that was overgrown and overrun by nature, reclaiming that space and other spaces with its green growths. For in fact, moss and lichen spread from there like an advancing tide, following the trail of humidity and feeding off the light and heat of the incandescent lights.
“It doesn’t lead to the surface.” Ishrin observed, looking at the ceiling and through the hole.
“Perhaps there is a hidden passage.” Lisette offered her explanation.
“Or maybe it’s just weird and strange like the rest of this place. Am I the only one?” Melina asked.
“You are not.” Lisette stated.
At times the lights flickered, the power that kept them running surging and then stabilizing again, and their hum was a scream, and the scream was agony of a place that was dying a slow death through the centuries. The door far behind them, ajar one second ago, slammed itself shut and the sound echoed.
“This place gives me the creeps,” Melina said. “It feels like everything is moving, beneath the surface.”
“I do have the same sensation.” Lisette said. “But we need to press on.”
Ishrin cocked his head. “Her bracers are on the line. Come on!”
Melina groaned. “Fine. Still creepy tho.”
Indeed, little sounds, groans and hisses of the pipes, strains of metal and mechanism seemed to come from all around. While what they could see was all perfectly still, the noises betrayed that somewhere below the apparent peaceful façade, things were alive and moving, and perhaps watching them with unknown means. Sir Westys’ and his team were walking cautiously now, their pride long forgotten, squeezed between Melina at the front and Lisette at the rear for more protection. They listened to the stronger adventurers’ conversations with a mixture of irritation – this was the case for Sir Westys – and envy at the much more relaxed attitude that only being a seasoned veteran could ever give them. This wasn’t to say that Ishrin and his team were being careless.
There were many things that could hurt them in the world. In fact, even though his coming to Noctis was relatively smooth, Ishrin learned very quickly on his adventures that the world was much more dangerous than it seemed. The mountain realm, for instance. That completely erased his sense of power he gained when he slew the Sycoraptor in the forest where he also met Lisette. And while encounters like that of Lucius in Obscuria still told the tale of a world where the true powerful people were rare in cities and whatnot, places like this revealed the other side of the coin: that dangers and powers beyond reckoning still dwelled beneath the surface, and one needed only look for them in the right places. Very much like his old world of Eternia. Except that here, he theorized, there was the guild. And what the guild did was maintain order and the apparent status quo in the cities and in the countryside around them, or more in general it kept order where order was needed for business to flourish, while confining danger to be only outside its sphere of protection.
Melina too was suddenly thrust in what seemed like a whole different world than what she was used to live in, where danger was everywhere and even her Tier 15 – that once she thought as being powerful with a power unobtainable by any but the luckiest – was just average.
The rooms were many. Ishrin led the way, at times stopping to check with his teammates, at other times to take in his surroundings. He had made another water compass and was holding it himself, letting it float next to him with a bit of effort using his telekinetic powers.
There was no magic here. The air was not devoid of it, but its presence in the air was no more than the usual suffused glow of ambient magic, and none of the walls or things that cluttered the corridor and rooms had any magic inside of them. This made Ishrin feel blind, in a different way than he did in the mountain realm where he was blinded by too much magic, more like he was in the absolute dark, with only a faint glow that was light, yes, but didn’t reveal anything, not even shapes. Of course, he still had his normal vision, but used as he was to having both senses at the same time, he felt extremely uncomfortable.
Not all was bad. The reactive armor, surrounding him but invisible, was charging and this made him feel like he was finally investing his overflowing mana into something for a later use. Beside him Liù was having a great time exploring the place, touching the little brass chandeliers with small halogen candles, examining the many copper and iron cogs on the floor, fallen from damaged pipes on the ceiling, and sometimes she even snuck into said pipes where they were large enough, only to then have to be cut free when she got stuck.
Everything was covered in grime. The greasy, dark fatty substance used to lubricate mechanisms and that was now mixed with dust, and plant matter. Footsteps echoed wetly.
From the distance, faint at the beginning but ever more present in the consciousness of the seven adventurers, a rhythmic clang of metal against metal reverberated through the corridors. Nobody could pinpoint where it was coming from, beyond the feeling that it was coming from deeper in the underground complex, for the sound traveled through the pipes and the hidden hatches in the walls, the service tunnels and the air vents, coming to them as a cloud of slightly delayed sounds from all directions.
An open space. The ceiling rose immediately after they crossed the threshold of a great gate that stood ajar, as if blasted out of its hinges, until it reached so high up that vapor and cooled down steam began to hide some of its features. Inside the fog were, like little searchlights, points of brightness that spread and diffused through the thick air until an orange hue was ever present up there. Below, the floor was uneven stone, cracked and wet, with moss and small ferns poking out of the cracks. Sometimes metal plates that were bolted to the stone were still visible under the vegetation, reflecting the cyan light that came from the far end of the room. There, three circular openings were faintly visible through the mists, and there was a strong light coming from behind them, and in that light the silhouette of three great machines could be seen. Great automata they were, with circular bodies and long, prehensile arms, and their heads were large squares that were dull and dark.
Until, suddenly, they weren’t. Deep, red and foreboding lights came to life like sinister eyes as a screech of grinding metal and awakening old mechanical pieces pierced the air and deafened the adventurers. Everyone almost jumped to their feet, not even having had enough time to take three steps into the room before they were shaken out of their contemplation by the sudden sound. Not everyone reacted the same. Ishrin took in the room he was in, immediately spotting the three now moving figures who were dragging themselves free from the alcoves they were in. The shadows they projected through the misty air were deep chasms of darkness, and the three circles where they once stood immobile revealed a path beyond, that was unreachable.
Melina and Lisette both panicked. In the commotion they lost sight of Sir Westys and his party, the four boys having seemingly vanished into the fog. There were shapes and shadows moving in the distance, but they were faint, and far, and it was impossible to tell if it was them or just the many reflections of the shiny and wet, greasy metal that played with their senses, with their perception. Their panic didn’t last long however, and they both showed their competence and experience, their focus homing in laser-like on the enemies ahead.
The central automaton was closest. Its size was the smallest of the three, but even then it stood at more than four times as tall as Ishrin, and with only the sound of the metal groaning and the hiss of pneumatics, it raised one of its many limbs of welded plates up in the air and slammed down. Immediately the limb hit a field of invisible telekinetic force and was pushed to the side, but it didn’t happen with the ease that everyone was expecting it to happen. In fact, Ishrin had to kneel on the ground and his knee had dug deep into the rock, cracking it and leaving a deep dent when he, slowly, pushed himself back to his feet. He strained.
“Battle formation!” Ishrin yelled, immediately jumping to the side to dodge another incoming arm. The other two automata were each converging towards one of the two girls, and they were bigger, although slower and with less appendages.
Two grunts of strain and effort told him all that he needed to know. In a matter of milliseconds, the battle was on. Sparks raged from his right side, where Lisette dashed towards the metal construct with her blades unsheathed, and was slashing at it while dancing around its body, climbing on it, dodging the prehensile limbs that uselessly slammed into the ground and broke unseen pipes that began to spew gases in the air. She searched for gaps, weak spots where she could plunge her blades and sever vital parts of the grand machine of animated metal.
On his right, the bright flashes of magical green, tinted with a little hint of white and slight blue he had never seen before, were the sign that Melina too was engaging with her enemy.
This made him relax enough to allow him to focus on his own opponent. Liù was also orbiting him like a small sentry, deploying small faint lasers that mapped the structure of the automaton, until they focused on a particular point at the end of one of its limbs.
Danger :o
Ishrin jumped to the side, slightly diverting the giant arm, and firing a Magic Pebble with his sword at it. The projectile hit the metal and dug into it, melting it and leaving behind a circular hole roughly the size of a fist, red with heat and hissing. But the damage was minimal, for it only hit plate and not vital moving parts. As he dodged, he tried to see what Liù was highlighting for him, and he noticed the multicolored scattering of the light, the hue of a crystal he recognized. He had seen it last in Obscuria, tipping an arrowhead that was capable of penetrating Tier 13 defenses with ease.
“Careful—” he tried to warn his teammates but had to dash again and ended his sentence with a grunt.
From the other side of the room, through the clang of metal, he saw a glimpse of Lisette weaving around a similar crystal, coating a long flexible sword at the end of one of her automaton’s limb. From behind instead came the wild rush of wind of Melina’s magic, and a strained yell.
“Noticed! They have crystal blades!” she yelled when she had a small window of rest, before disappearing again in a flash of verdant energy to dash at her opponent.
Ishrin’s automaton was different than theirs. It shifted, and its limbs reorganized and changed until they morphed into different weapons: hammers, flexible swords, whips. And all these weapons were coated with the same crystal, the same dangerous substance that could hurt him somehow.
Suddenly a bright red light was in front of his eyes. He had gotten distracted, but Liù was ever watchful and had highlighted the vector of impact of the automaton’s flexible sword as it descended upon him with a red hologram, and there were ghostly images of him dodging and reposting to the attack, simulating what he could do to counter it. He grinned, taking a stance and exploding out with the full strength of his Tier 11 power, and he used telekinesis to push himself against the ground and change course mid-air until he landed right where one of the thing’s limbs were attached to its body. Before the automaton could react, he blasted the joint with Pebble after Pebble and then jumped away. With the joint weakened, he pulled at it from afar and yanked it free, and it came loose in a shower of black ooze that sizzled and smoked where it hit the ground.
The recoil sent him sprawling on his back. Even though Liù was there to catch him, he still ended up on the ground, feeling the wet of the stone and the odd warmth of a gas leak on his back. His pupils widened, and his mind raced. A giant crystal-coated hammer was descending upon him. His heart sped up. This was a slip-up. And almost fatal one. He could not get out in time.
The hammer hit, and for a moment there was silence. It was like even the other fights were momentarily suspended, as if both the automata and the girls were watching with their breath stuck in their throat was had happened to Ishrin. There was a small cloud of dust that had risen where the hammer had pulverized the stone, and sent Ishrin’s body several layers of pipes and service tunnels below the surface.
The hammer slowly came loose. The crystal on its surface was cracked.
A blue light. The small holographic body of Liù, surrounding her real indestructible body that was the SPAWN AI cube, flew out and up to the ceiling as if running away from something.
The dust slowly settled around the crater. There was only the sound of hissing vapor and dripping water.
Everything was still.
Lisette and Melina held their breath. Time ticked and ticked. Nothing was coming out of the hole.
The girls could see that Ishrin’s opponent was now turning against them, to team up with the other automata and finally tip the scales of the battle.
A single thought on their mind.
“We will fight until the end. Even if we die.”
Resolve in their eyes, they prepared for their last battle.

2023.03.20 23:22 empayastadeomind Micro Judders on APPs vs. Dolby Audio Processing On/Off

I have a strange issue and wondering if anybody else out there has this. When I set the Dolby Audio Processing to OFF, most of my apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube TV (specifically NBA on TNT w/ 5.1 audio set to on) as well as videos I try to cast to the built-in chromecast, have either micro judders when playing, or in the case of chromecast, errors out and doesn’t play at all. However when I turn Dolby Audio Processing ON, all of the issues go away, and chromecast is now able to play every video I cast (including the awful NBA league pass app). Anybody know why that would be the case? Ideally I’d like to turn DAP off to get the true pass through experience, however it renders my device unwatchable when I have it set as off.
Current Build - Shield Tube (2019 - audio out set as HDMI and manually selected all of the supported codecs) —> Onkyo SR-373 5.1 Receiver (HDMI-in and set to Direct Sound) —> TV Samsung KU6290 (all post image processing is turned off).

2023.03.20 23:22 Maximum_Apartment829 Am I supposed to be convinced this isn't good, let alone a masterpiece?

Late again for the party. And somehow, my obsession with counting calories when I shop for my food seemed to have found its way to just about everything in my life. I have to read reviews on just about everything, from movies before I watch them, games before I buy them and now songs before I listen to them.
This habit is what made me stay away from Set Me Free Pt2 by Jimin. I've been lurking on all these Kpop Reddit subs regarding new releases, and it seems there's a widespread agreement that this song was terrible--someone even posted it was unlistenable.
But it piqued my interest. I haven't heard a bad solo song from Jimin, and many people seemed so disappointed by this new song so much that they'd dedicated posts about it that I finally decided to listen to it now. (I sound so gaudy, anyway)
After listening to it, I was immediately convinced this was a masterpiece.
Important points I got from the criticisms:
1. The autotune
I get why people are put off by it--especially Kpop stans. Incorporating heavy and distorted autotuning is relatively new in Kpop, probably only 6-7 years. If a person mainly listens to Kpop or similar genres like modern pop, chances are they will be appalled by this style. But saying, “they should have lessened or removed the distorted autotune, and it would sound better,” is truthfully ludicrous.
You're just not into this type of style. And that's okay. It's unlistenable, TO YOU, because it doesn't fall on your preference, but saying it is unlistenable because of the autotune as if it is the unwavering truth is almost comical.
Also, I have beef with people who say, they like heavy auto-tuning in songs, but this wasn't done right, then proceed to say absolutely nothing to suggest how it should have been done. This type of comment reminds me so much of the Dunning-Kruger effect, which is when a person might have the slimmest bit of awareness about a subject yet, believe that they are an expert.
Another thing about this point, a lot of people say they should just have let Jimin sing as he does because he sounds good. Of course, he sounds good! But where are the people who look at the whole context? I think the man is singing about breaking free. How can it be done when he'll sing sweetly for the entire 3 minutes?
2. The overbearing grandiosity
I don't exactly know what people consider grand because this MV, at least to me, was rather simple. If there's anything grand about it, it would be the performance of Jimin and the backup dancers, but I can't seem to know why people would complain about that. I don't remember a time when Jimin hasn't been all out with his performances. If it is the MV, I'd suggest looking into their ON official music videos (no offence, armys). That MV was too much.
3. The repetitive lyrics
Interestingly, this was the best part of the song for me. I love the constant repetition of “SET ME FREE” because it almost sounded like a willful plea.
Why do I consider this a masterpiece?
  1. This song is a deep dive into Jimin opening himself to uncharted territories in his artistic and music career. This song sounds foreign because he hasn't done anything similar. I can only assume it's difficult, yet he still did it because that is what his artistry demands. I felt Jimin’s sincere motives and intentions.
  2. The usage of texture to differentiate parts of the song tells an average person like me that there has been a lot of time and effort put into the making and mixing of the piece to tell a story better.
  3. Most notably, the performance was out of this world.
At the end of the day. I AM THE BIGGEST CLOWN for allowing myself to be influenced by these critics. Honestly feel like crap right now. I might watch Turning Red after this, it might also be a good one.

2023.03.20 23:21 lines101 My Unfortunate Experience with Zed Tactical's "Luxury Wool Cloak"

I was excited to purchase a "Luxury Wool Cloak" from Zed Tactical after watching a YouTube video by Risky Chrisky. Unfortunately, my experience with both the product and Zed Tactical has been disappointing, to say the least. $125 worth of garbage.
When the cloak arrived after several weeks of waiting, I found it to be nothing more than the "Olive Drab Green Warm Fire Retardant Blanket, 66" x 90" (80% Wool)-US Military Style" available on Amazon for $24.99 with Prime free shipping. Literally- the exact same item. I compared tags, and they are identical.
The quality left much to be desired, as it had a strong unpleasant chemical odor reminiscent of my socks after an 8 mile ruck. Far from luxurious.
I reached out to Zed Tactical to voice my concerns, as I had mistakenly assumed that the cloak was made in the USA.
Although the product description does state that the hardware is handmade by a local blacksmith, I erroneously believed that the cloak itself would also be made locally. I admit, my mistake there.
Zed Tactical's response was: "No where in the product description or in any marketing material do the words made in America for the wool cloak have ever been used. The hardware is made by a blacksmith in America but I never said the hardware was made in America even though it was. I'm only in the shop on the weekends so I didn't see your previous email. What would you like from me going forward?"
I chose to return the cloak at my own expense and asked for a refund. Despite using 2-day shipping to send it back, I am still awaiting my refund and doubt that I will ever receive it.
I would like to warn others who may be considering Zed Tactical's "Luxury Cloak" that it is far from luxurious and is actually just an inexpensive, Indian-made wool blanket. Be aware and don't be misled by the Woobie Hoodie-style marketing. Definitely not quality tactical gear.
Rating: 1/5 stars
