2023.06.04 06:12 CrazyBroom Need help. No docking station I buy works with my drives.

These are the docking stations I have bought and ended up refunding.
I had two purchases of this last link a few years ago. One of the broke which is what made me look for another. I need two for my needs.
The one that still works I have tried with all my drives on 4 different machines all with different Windows version. From 7 all the way to 11 and it works flawlessly. Plug in and go. So I bought two more last week. One to replace my old broken one, and another to keep just in case. It is what made me go down this rabbit hole, but neither of those worked, which led me to trying all the other products up there.
None of those worked too. The only thing that comes to mind is all of these companies by parts/chipsets from the same manufacturer and they changed what they use, and said chipset or whatever it is, is shit.
The drives I am using are 4tb WD red and blue. Again they work flawlessly in my old Sabrent enclosure across multiple devices and windows version. So it can't be my devices. This is getting out of control. Hell I'm willing to drop $100+ if it means getting my drives up and running again.
Please don't respond with anecdotes saying a purchase works unless you bought it in the last month or two to keep my chances the highest of finding a working product.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.

2023.06.04 06:12 sirCota Engineers (and Assistant Engineers of major studios) who work on/with major label stuff, how has the game changed in the last 10 years?..

for me, particular to vocals working for a major studio for example: used to be you setup, open the session, if you have the files, you load em and tempo map it, find the key, have some tracks with your aux chain and fx. if it’s rap, it’s maybe 87-avalon / c-800-avalon … otherwise, maybe a 1073 and a cl1b, into PT, and you playlist takes, and build your comp take as you go. after a rough mix, you might send a password protected file, or give physical media. .. tho a simple mp3 email does happen.
tracking bands: i’m wondering, have any new mics or mic’ing styles or pieces of gear you’ve seen come into play and just take over that scene in the last 10 years?
editing: 10 years ago, the melodyne game was shifting to where you had guys who only tuned vocals and made bank to now what seems like the vocal tracking engineer is supposed to melodyne as part of the post editing that day? and we’d use various trigger plugins like slate or even just sound replacer to support at least kik snr toms.
sessions were clean, heavily edited and the rough mix is kind of built as you go… things definitely get hand nudged for just about any instrument or anything, and you couldn’t really just snap to grid cause you lose too much soul.
I dunno… is it still , artist comes in late, gets you mp3, you load & loop, and go smoke a cig till they’re ready to lay one down?
actually, i’m thinking have you seen any mics/hardware/plug-in/workflow format/editing/software/things not being done anymore (printing mix to 1/2” tape etc)?
every decade has an identifiable style of repeat fav gear or engineering styles that are identifiable .
what has changed between 2010 and now?

2023.06.04 06:11 LCMechanical Old Hands

An earlier post got me thinking about the ages of many folks here, and I'd like to hear from some of the older authors/readers in this subgenre! I grew up as a child and young adult reading books with progression before there was a name for the subgenre.
This being the case, let's expand the world for some newer readers. How old are you, and what's a favorite series of yours from yesteryear that would fit in the ProgFantasy subgenre as it is today?!
I'll start. Not that old myself, but I've read many thousands of books, starting from a very young age, so I have a lot of titles in my repertoire that don't just include recent releases.
Just turned 29 in April, and one of my favorite series as a young adult that would still fit in this subgenre is The Bartimaeus Trilogy, an awesome three-book series with a single one-off about a young man who lives in a world of magic, where magic is used through summoning and contracting with demons. He starts as a young boy under a poor and weak master and becomes a great member of the government while growing as a person and in power.
What else y'all got?
*Gonna put this as a general question tag. Not sure if it should go under that or 'I recommend this'. If a MOD thinks it should be changed, please let me know and I'll be happy to edit it when I see it in the comments.

2023.06.04 06:11 Long_Love_2173 Coolant level low but no leaks?

I have a known coolant leak that I just top off with water and will last me a couple weeks but just recently the Mickey mouse flange failed and drained all the coolant in like 15 minutes. Got it replaced and everything is fine there but when I topped off with water again it dumps it all before I can even get down the road. (Yes the Mickey mouse flange is fully seated/secure and is dry so I’m not suspecting it to be the issue.) I don’t see any leaks on my driveway or on the plastic under tray near the front bumper. I have no other symptoms. What gives!?

The Daughter that Follows
Chapter 27
Part 3
Anna’s barriers flared to life and she felt Hong Long try to push through.
“No, we don't want to scare them any worse than they are.” Anna said telepathically as she felt the creature’s jaws begin to squeeze down on her barriers.
She felt Hong Long strain against her will then finally push through and form in front of her. The dragon roared and slammed into the beast, coiling and restraining the struggling creature. Then it looked in the direction of Alan. Anna followed her tulpa’s gaze.
Alan Quain was casually holding the moth of the Indominous Rex shut, the creature was now forcefully crouched and clearly in a submissive stance. He was patting its side and soothing it with comforting words and a telepathic reassurance. He looked over at Anna briefly and nodded to the other one which was currently trying to bite into Hong Long, which was proving fruitless as the tulpa’s skin was near impenetrable to a mundane creature. Anna, however, was getting the feeling of bites all over her body.
She sighed and walked over to the dinosaur, near enough to its snapping jaws, but more than just out of range. She focused and soon she was in it’s mind. He was a furious and aggressive creature, made even more aggressive by a lifetime of shocks from batons and drugs from guns. She saw his only solace was his sister who was now being casually restrained by something it saw as food. Anna reached out mentally and hugged the creature in its mind. To the dinosaur’s perspective though it was now very tiny compared to Anna’s mental form. She tried her best to comfort it, but it was continually lashing out. Soon though, her father joined her and pulled her away. The dinosaur soon fell into a deep sleep.
“They’ll have to be quarantined in the old Bio-Syn sanctuary, but we don’t have to end them.” Alan said. “This one is going to be a problem unless he’s asleep though.”
“People suck.” Anna sniffled.
Alan nodded. “We can, but we can also...”
“Be better.” Anna nodded. “Kratos wasn’t a subtle teacher.”
Alan laughed, “You’d be surprised.”
“So what now?” Anna asked.
“I contacted Billy, they’ll be here for pickup in the morning. Then they go to the sanctuary and we go back to the camp for a bit. Until then I’ll keep him in a deep sleep, his sister won’t be too much of an issue, she’s calmer, but she’s gonna need to eat.” Alan said as he looked to Hong Long, “Think you can help out there?”
Hong Long snorted and nodded, then looked at Anna.
Anna smiled and nodded. “Thank you.”
Hong Long made a series of mumbles and nudged Anna’s head.
“Go get her something good to eat. Like a big crocodile or something.” Anna smiled and patted him on the head.
The tulpa dragon flew off.
Alan made camp and Anna helped. By the time they had finished Hong Long had returned and put an overly large snake by the Rex’s mouth.
“Well that’s a fucking huge anaconda.” Alan sighed as purple flashed around the area of their camp.
“Something we should worry about?” Anna asked.
Alan shrugged. “Potentially, there are realities where anacondas just get absurdly large and eat people.”
Anna’s eyes went wide.
“I doubt this is one of those worlds, but for all I know someone de-extincted the Titanboa.” Alan huffed and added, “Again.”
“Again?!” Anna almost shrieked.
“I thought you loved all animals.” Alan laughed.
“I do, but who keeps making these clones and why?” Anna stomped her foot on the ground as Hong Long shrunk down and coiled over her shoulder.
“Rich assholes wanting to make more money by selling a ‘perfect weapon’.” Alan sighed. “Story doesn’t change much honestly. Psionic soldier. Cloned dinosaur. Engineered Dinosaur. Ancient Snake. They always want to exploit something, there’s always a Looten Plunder.”
“Okay, was that a name?” Anna asked.
“Ah, you didn’t get to meet The Planeteers, that’s right.” Alan sighed and shook his head. “We’ll go find a world of theirs, you’d get along with all of them. But yeah it's the name of an asshole whose only goal is to exploit nature for money. Also hires a very lethal mercenary I tend to have to kill.”
“Yikes.” Anna said as she sat down and began to stroke Hong Long like a very long and reptilian cat.
“The Planteers were 5 kids recruited by a very literal spirit of the Earth, Gaia. They’re not soldiers and were never meant to be, their entire purpose is education and enlightenment. But they weren’t left defenseless. They each got a magic ring, four with the classic elements and the fifth is heart, which is kinda like telepathy but more here...” He tapped his chest. “If they really get pressed, which happens to them a lot because they're teens and they’re fighting psychotic, sometimes super villain adults, they can combine the powers to make...” He gestured in the air and the illusion of a blue skinned man with teal hair and red suit-like parts on his body appeared, “Captain Planet.”
“Nice mullet.” Anna snickered.
“He likes it.” Alan laughed. “He loves those kids, I try to remember that when I’m in their worlds.”
Anna nodded as she watched the image. “He has the heart of a hero.”
Alan laughed, “Filling those shoes already?”
“I think it’s because the other part of my base is already there.” Anna said. “I’m just waiting on you.”
“Well now we’re just waiting on each other.” Alan smirked. “Get some sleep. I got the watch. Need to keep the big boy asleep anyway.”
Anna nodded and walked into her tent, “Hong Long keep him some company for a bit please?”
Hong Long nodded coiled around Alan’s waist, waiting to be patted.
“Oh no, you don’t fool me.” Alan smiled as he pulled out some cards. “Come on, a game or two.”
Hong Long wrinkled his nose and snorted but coiled his lower body in such a way that it made a flat enough surface to play a game of cards.
Anna woke up to the sound of metal clanging against metal. Slowly she walked out of her tent and saw that her father was loading the male Indominous Rex into a holding sling. The female was actually sitting calmly in a holding crate, two large goat carcasses at her maw for her to eat whenever.
“Your dragon cheats.” Alan laughed as he locked the final column into place. “But he cheats poorly.”
“Why are you teaching my dragon card games?” Anna asked as she patted the dragon that once again coiled around her like a sash.
“He knows them, I just wanted a game or two.” Alan snorted.
Hong Long made some murmuring noises and grumbles that Anna understood as him being upset at being caught.
“Of course he caught you, he’s endlessly old.” Anna said with a minor jab to her father.
Alan smiled then realized what she had said as several work men laughed at the joke.
“My daughter, guys.” Alan sighed. “All right, let’s pack and get back to the camp and a warm shower!”
“Oh, warm showers.” Anna nodded. “And you can tell me about some other places we should visit.”
Alan smiled as he hugged his daughter. “I got a great one!” He laughed.
Another helicopter ride and a few time zones later the father and daughter were once again at the Montana based Camp Cretaceous. Alan had gotten the honor of the first shower in no small part due to a pachy skidding and covering him in mud and excrement through the fencing it had. Anna was glad that she had it last though, she got to enjoy the fresh hot water that she knew her dad had helped kick up.
It was well into the evening when they were sitting on his porch, looking out at the heads of the brachiosauruses swaying in the setting sun. Rio was even taking her time to watch them as well.
Alan was actually enjoying himself to a degree he hadn’t let himself in a very long time.
Anna was ecstatic, and enraptured by the gentle giants.
Rio’s recent turmoil and confusion seemed to have faded.
Then Alan sighed loudly and put his beer down on a table.
Anna focused and Rio did as well.
Hong Long coiled around Anna.
Rio stood and took a defensive stance.
From the high above the green aura of Psy-Ko descended, her enhanced powers made her glow like a beacon in the night. Besides her a suit of black metallic armor was descending as well.
“Hello Alan.” Psy-Ko smiled. “Anna.”
“Go die in a fire.” Anna growled.
“Is that anyway to greet--” Psy-Ko was cut off.
“Yes!” Alan shouted, “Yes it is how you great lunatics who hound and harass your family!”
An invisible force sent the armor that contained Sindri sailing into the sky.
“Well, I guess we’re fighting then!” Sindri roared as he rebounded back faster than anyone could react. His armor’s fist impacted a barrier that seemed to pop out of thin air. It was gleaming white and had odd symbols filling it.
“I’m sorry, I’m keeping them safe for a bit.” Ragnis grinned as he appeared. “Allow me to assert your place in the hierarchy of power.”
“Above him.” Psy-Ko grinned as green strands of hair stretched out and began to weave themselves into the various dinosaurs.
“Oh no you don’t!” Anna snarled as she formed a blade of her aura around her wrist and levitated herself up to the stands, cutting through all of them.
Alan just stared as his temper started to flare. “FLEISCH!” He roared.
The psionic woman smiled at the man she hated. “You remembered my name.”
“You’re boring.” Ragnis said as he looked down at the straining form of Sindri in his mech suit. “Now her..” Ragnis made a kicking motion and Sindri’s mech was swallowed by a beam of light and vanished.
Ragnis was then immediately at Psy-Ko’s side swinging a huge claymore down on her. Psy-Ko smiled as she dodged effortlessly. Soon she felt all the strands of her hair were cut free from their targets. Shr grinned again as she turned to Anna.
“My dear, why such worry? They’d be under better care with me.” Psy-Ko tried her best to give a sweet smile.
Anna stopped and turned to her.
“Anna!” Alan shouted. “She’s up to something.” He brought himself into the air and watched as Rio awas now engaging the returning form of Sindri. “This is some sort of trap!”
“Oh do be quiet Alan!” Psy-Ko sneered as tendrils of her hair raced and encased Alan Quain.
Anna roared as she surged forward. Ragnis joined her in the shout of rage. Psy-Ko moved effortlessly as she used her hair to snake into Anna’s aura and steal control of her arm from her. She directed it to the sword arm of the Scion of Life.
Ragnis shrieked in pain as his right arm was lopped off half way up his forearm. The limb fell as Anna watched in shock at what Psy-Ko had done. Psy-Ko laughed in joy as Sindri caught the limb and vanished. Then the hair that had encased Alan Quain detonated as if a bomb of pure power had gone off. It left Psy-Ko with only half of her hair left as she too shrieked in pain.
Psy-Ko floundered as she tried to focus once more. She was able to get just enough focus to see the rising form of Alan Quain, the purple mark of his psionic power that marked his eyes was now expanded out like with the edges splashed in black and white, like volcanoes of rage highlighting just how dangerous a force of nature he was becoming.
“Retreat Ragnis.” Alan said with an angry hiss.
Anna was still in shock. “Ragnis...”
“It’s alright kid.” Ragnis winced, “We both fell for it.” He vanished and left her to her confusion.
“I’m done pulling my punches with you.” Alan focused on Psy-Ko and the woman felt an intense pressure on her throat.
“No!” The high pitched and gleeful voice of Atropos said as she appeared and encased Psy-Ko in a wave of dark pulsing energy. “I think that will have to wait...” Then they vanished.
It took both Anna and Alan a few moments to establish that no major damage had been done, but there were now reports of UFOs fighting over dinosaurs. Which was going to definitely boost their tourism funding at the camp.
When they came down and went back inside Anna was crying into her pillow.
“Stupid question, but can I do anything?” Alan asked.
“I’m sorry, I should have listened.” Anna sniffled.
“She actually surprised me with that.” Alan said. “Hair powers. That’s quite a change.”
“Psychic hair powers.” Anna corrected him with a small laugh.
“That’s...” Alan blinked. “That’s just dumb and I know a woman who uses her normal hair in a similar way.”
“Will he be okay?” Anna asked.
Alan shrugged. “I mean according to them you took off half of the Wicked Bitch’s hand and she couldn’t fix that.”
Anna nodded. “I’m a danger to them.”
A flash outside their door and a knock later and Ragnis was opening the door and walking in. He was wearing a heavily metallic prosthetic.
“You could have waited for me to answer.” Alan said.
“You were going to let me in anyway.” Ragnis shrugged and showed off his hand. “No hard feelings, I got a new one.”
“Why does that look...” Anna stared at it. “Is that Vik’s work?”
“No, but it is from V’s reality.” Ragnis smiled. “Going to need some variants, but now that I have one that’s a part of me I can work with it.”
“But she has your hand.” Anna pointed out.
“Yeah, that’s concerning.” Ragnis nodded. “But don’t blame yourself, they clearly planned this. And we both had to fall for it.”
“I mean, I did say it was a trap.” Alan shrugged.
“Yeah but how did you know?” Anna asked.
“He is endlessly old.” Ragnis nodded.
Alan stared at the Scion.
“I already used that earlier.” Anna said.
“Daughters get a ‘being cute’ pass.” Alan growled.
“Look, I already told the others, I got this so don’t blame yourself.” Ragnis sighed. “She’s been a step ahead for so long.” Ragnis shook his head. “But I’m still keeping an eye on you. Let her meet the kids, get some rest, leave when you’re ready.”
Alan nodded. “Thanks.”
Rio stared at the Scion. “Will she target others?”
“Oh my god she’s trying to become Sarumon of Many Colors!” Anna gasped.
“Wonderful reference, but no it doesn’t work like that. At most that hand has a very small amount of what my concept of life is.” Ragnis shook his head. “Although now I have to have Perfection paint the image of her in a rainbow outfit just to annoy her.”
“Why would it annoy her?” Anna asked.
Ragnis sighed, “She’s Evil, not terribly original and quite frankly she should be easy to predict, but we keep missing something.”
“Her actual goal.” Alan sighed. “It’s been something so insane you can’t grasp.”
“Do you have any insight oh, old one?” Ragnis asked
Alan glared once again. “No, because again I’m not that desperately insane. Once this thing with Darkseid is over you got me for the seconds it takes to flatten her.”
“Or flatline her.” Anna added.
Alan and Ragnis both cast a concerned glance at Anna.
“She’s getting to me.” Anna sighed.
Rio stood up and sat next to Anna. “Would you like to pet my head again?”
Anna smiled and slowly patted Rio’s head.
“When in doubt, pet a friend.” Ragnis said, “You two relax, you’re safe. Even if the res of us aren’t.”

Help with WC
I am relatively new to the game (500 or so hours), and this is my first time ever attempting a world conquest.
I started as Austria and I managed to revoke the privilegia in a decent amount of time (early 1500s), but since then I have been stuck on what to do next.
Should I revoke and just start hard blobbing? Do I continue to eat up Europe and expand my vassal swarm? Or do I just use my vassals to help me conquer the rest of the world first?

2023.06.04 06:10 Isanbard [R1S] San Francisco Bay Area -> Illinois: Part III

Well, I'm weary and tired, I've done my day's riding Nighttime is rolling my way The sky's all on fire and the light's slowly fading Peaceful and still ends the day
—John Denver, "Song of Wyoming"
Part 1 Part 2
When last we left our intrepid explorers, they were camped at Buckland Flats near Salt Lake City. Driving down from Buckland Flats in the early morning, Nibbler and I are tired, but wanting to make some good headway into the trip. It's been an exhausting trip so far. The camping is fun, but when mixed with 400-500 mile travel days, it begins to wear on you.
According to my calculations (i.e. guesses), I think we can make it well into Wyoming before needing to charge again. And surely most cities in WY will have charging stations, even if they aren't the 3-lightning-bolt ones.
Okay, so I was wrong.
We roll into Rock Springs with around 57 miles of range still left. I thought I saw on the map that there was a charging station at the local Wally World, but no. It turns out that the nearest charging station is 104 miles back the way we came (there's one in Rawlings on our route, but it's 112 miles).[1]
I have no clue what to do. A call to Jessica at Rivian confirms that I'm a screwed. Jessica consults with her colleagues and they discover a small charger in the downtown area. The drawback is that it charges at ~15 miles / hour. I spend the day in Rock Spring's downtown, with exciting boarded up buildings, delectable no restaurants, and so little to see and do! There is a cafe at least, so I can drink some tea while staving off boredom.
Once I get a charge of 115 miles, I make my getaway. The speed limit varies between 70 and 80 mph, which will destroy my range, so once again I have to drive well under the speed limit.
Trucker 1: What the...? That Rivian jerk is back at it! I thought he was going west!
Trucker 2: Are you sure this isn't the omen?
Trucker 1: Don't start on that again. I told you that Ouiji board is just a game!
Trucker 2: But how do you explain this guy and the ravens we saw back in Salt Lake?!
u/Isanbard's Tips for Driving on Minimal Charge:
  1. Use Conserve mode (natch),
  2. Drive no more than 65 mph, preferably less,
  3. Use regenerative breaking as much as possible, and
  4. Avoid superstitious truckers.
This should increase your range by a few miles and allow you to fulfill the prophesy!
Anywoo, we get to Rawlings with scant miles to spare. It's late in the day, and while Wyoming is beautiful, I'm not in the best mood and am weary and decide that once we get to Cheyenne we'll spend the night in a hotel. It was a great idea (except the not-putting-Nibbler-into-his-carrier part, but I had too much blood in my all ready).
A quick chat about the Ireland Republican Army at a rest area later and Nibbler and I roll into Cheyenne, which is smaller than I thought it would be. The night at the hotel is much appreciated by all involved.
Next: No more butt biting? Yes please!
To Be Continued
1 As it turns out, Wyoming isn't too keen on Biden's plan to create an EV charging infrastructure...

2023.06.04 06:10 alexeyalb2577 Martha's Portrait

Some have suggested that the woman beside Martha in the painting/portrait (good cameras supposedly don't exist for siloians) is Judge Meadows, but I think its actually Ellis from recycling.
Either Judge Meadows has an amazing 12 step skincare routine, or she's too young to have been with Martha at the time; I feel like the ages/aging lines up much better with Ellis. Martha and Ellis both working for recycling is also very convenient and I doubt Judge Meadows would even go near the bottom of the silo.
Let me know what you think
Those grainy ID photos are supposedly the best cameras available in the silo, so assuming this is a painting, the face details probably wouldn't be perfectly accurate

2023.06.04 06:10 NightMareChia Work place bullsh*t AITAH

Hello! I am a employee of a non corporate Starbucks that is inside a Target shopping center. So I technically work for target and get Target benefits. However a bunch of things have been happening since I was hired 11 months ago.
So my main team lead for Starbucks (we can call her bossy), doesn’t know how to do her job. That’s right, she has worked at the SAME position for 25+ years and doesn’t know how to do her job (that’s not even the worse part). Just today she clocked out of her shift 20 mins early without telling ANYONE! Then she went to sit with her friends as I am now by myself struggling to make and take orders with a long line with about a 20 min wait time. Bossy and her friends just WATCHED me struggle with the orders. She never told me why she clocked out early even, she was NO WHERE NEAR overtime for the week. Besides that, she left us alone off and on four times for a total of 3ish hours. Didn’t have a reason but “emails”. My other team leads said it only takes 20 mins PER WEEK to work on emails, she takes 2+ hours PER DAY, and she won’t say when she is leaving to do it. If I ask where she was, she just says emails and not to worry.
She also doesn’t give us barista’s free drinks or food, yet claims to her Starbucks bosses that she does. Since I’ve been hired, I’ve never gotten a free drink from her, she is supposed to be doing it more often, but doesn’t. Even worse though, us baristas are NOT allowed to have water on hand. By state law we are supposed to have a designated area for water to go. We do not have one, we brought this up to her and Bossy ignored us. So we are LUCKY if we get to drink ANYTHING between breaks (about 4 hours), and our Target isn’t cooling off fast enough to beat the heat, so it’s humid and hot inside the store. We brought this up to a higher team lead and they also ignored us. Hell, even HR ignored me!
Now the team lead above bossy and is the front of the store team lead who is responsible for scheduling (let’s call him EL for entitled leader), has refused me to be trained in other parts of the store. I’ve been BEGGING for 2 months to be trained in ANY position and no longer work Starbucks, and that I don’t care where and I won’t complain. Plus we are in dire need of staff however the store refuses to hire new people and instead burns out it’s own employees. He moved me to lanes 2 times, other then that I’ve only been in Starbucks. I tried asking again and he ignored me. There is 3 team lead positions opening up within the next 2 weeks and I feel like if I ask they won’t allow me to apply just because. ALSO EL hates giving vacation time or days of, even though your not available that day for whatever reason, he will still put you on the schedule. I requested a weekend off 2 months in advance, and he kept denying it for no reason.
I wish there were other jobs near by that paid as much or better then Target, but none of them come close, and as a person finishing high school, I prefer a higher paying job. However the management at Target, in the part of the store where I work, is so bad I want to quit.
ALSO!!!! Almost all of the baristas are DRAMA! And I’ve been so mistreated over my mental and physical health that I can’t take it. As a person who gets triggered and can easily get panic attacks I did warn them that if I run to the back randomly I just need a min. One time I did that after a miserable week, I ran to the back struggling to breathe. One barista that was about to clock out for lunch turned around, looked at me, and said, “What the f*ck is wrong with you?!” I slowly said panic attack through gasps and shaking and all she said was “Well get back to work then, it’s not that bad.” HUH!? I’m barely able to stand in front of you, wdym?
There is another barista that makes fun of me because I can’t spell names for the life of me. So I often ask customers to spell it for me and I always hear behind me, then spelling it super slow interrupting the customer as they are making drinks.
Now, is this normal and I’m frustrated over nothing, or are my feelings accurate. Cause to me it’s EXTREMELY infuriating.

2023.06.04 06:09 CaptainSpaceCat Nobody loves me

My first and last relationship ended poorly, and I haven't recovered since. It seems that some part of me is actively repulsive to others.
I just don't understand what I'm doing wrong. I can't shake the feeling that everyone around me views me with a sense of disgust. My housemates don't even acknowledge when I enter the room. Random people will make eye contact with me and then look away as fast as possible.
I've been looking inward to try and find the problem but I just don't see it. I do my best to try and understand how other people feel and how to meet their needs. I try to be kind as much as i can. I'm not extremely attractive, but I'm not too shabby either. Idk what I'm doing wrong but I can't get this awful thought out of my head that no one loves me. All my friends and housemates easily find relationships and I'm just stuck finishing up a masters degree that I've come to hate. Nobody ever expresses interest in me and I don't know why.
Logically I know that people do love me. At least one of my parents does, my siblings do, and I do have plenty of friends. But somehow it's still unsatisfying. Could use any advice

2023.06.04 06:09 cobarbob iSCSI Performance on NVME is not what I expected

I'm attempting to setup a iSCSI server for VMWARE with NVME storage. When I test locally on the server performance is fantastic. When I test over iSCSI either from VMware or from another Ubuntu server, I get no where near the local performance.
Now, I don't expect to get 1:1 performance over iSCSI. But I get terrible random read/write IOPs at 4k and terrible sequential write speed. Read speed seems to be ok ish.
I've setup a lot of iSCSI SANs in my time, but they have been entirely commodity, Dell, EMC, HP etc, where you set it up, and get whatever performance you get out of the box. So now setting up on Ubuntu server I'm trying to make sure I'm getting max performance.
Is iSCSI that much of a performance drain? Or am I missing some secret tweaks on especially high throughput systems that cause unexpected bottlenecks?
I was initially hoping to just setup ZFS (TrueNAS or ZFS on Ubuntu), but performance was worse and write speeds were really bad.
Some more details and stuff I've tried:
FIO tests are 1MBoutput from server:
On the server:
SEQ READ: bw=87.6GiB/s (94.1GB/s), 87.6GiB/s-87.6GiB/s (94.1GB/s-94.1GB/s), io=1753GiB (1882GB), run=20005-20005msec RAND READ: bw=11.9GiB/s (12.8GB/s), 11.9GiB/s-11.9GiB/s (12.8GB/s-12.8GB/s), io=238GiB (256GB), run=20001-20001msec SEQ WRITE: bw=37.0GiB/s (39.8GB/s), 37.0GiB/s-37.0GiB/s (39.8GB/s-39.8GB/s), io=741GiB (796GB), run=20019-20019msec RAND WRITE: bw=4534MiB/s (4754MB/s), 4534MiB/s-4534MiB/s (4754MB/s-4754MB/s), io=88.6GiB (95.1GB), run=20001-20001msec 
On Windows VM:
SEQ READ: bw=1809MiB/s (1897MB/s), 1809MiB/s-1809MiB/s (1897MB/s-1897MB/s), io=52.3GiB (56.2GB), run=29602-29602msec RAND READ: bw=335MiB/s (352MB/s), 335MiB/s-335MiB/s (352MB/s-352MB/s), io=6722MiB (7048MB), run=20049-20049msec SEQ WRITE: bw=846MiB/s (888MB/s), 846MiB/s-846MiB/s (888MB/s-888MB/s), io=19.2GiB (20.6GB), run=23192-23192msec RAND WRITE: bw=262MiB/s (275MB/s), 262MiB/s-262MiB/s (275MB/s-275MB/s), io=6327MiB (6634MB), run=24156-24156msec 

So quite the performance difference. I feel like somewhere I need to increase a buffer size or change something to unlock some potential in the system, but for the life of me I can't figure it out. Save me reddit your my only hope

2023.06.04 06:09 Immediate_Stomach_67 True story that happened to me, Brownsville Texas.

I'm from Brownsville, Texas, and one night I was at my girlfriend's house. We were having a normal evening, watching a movie and relaxing in bed, at around 9:00 pm. Since no one else was home, we were surprised when we heard a robotic-like voice coming from outside the window. I checked, but I didn't see anything. This happened twice. Then, we heard noises coming from the kitchen. My girlfriend had cats in the house, so we thought it might be them and didn't pay much attention. However, the noises continued, and they were louder the second time. We jokingly checked the living room and kitchen, but found nothing unusual, so we went back to bed. Suddenly, we heard the noises again for the third time, and this time we decided to thoroughly check the entire house. However, we couldn't find anything out of the ordinary. The cats were also missing, as if they were hiding. My girlfriend went back to her room, and I followed her. Before entering the room, I had a strange feeling and decided to look out into the hallway. It was dark, and I couldn't see anything, but suddenly, I heard a human whistle. Thinking it was my girlfriend, I smiled and laughed a little. However, when I looked at her, she seemed genuinely terrified and asked me to close the door. I locked it as she requested. We suspected that someone had entered the house, and I was ready to call 911. However, my girlfriend insisted that I shouldn't. Instead, we decided to run out of the house. I locked the bottom lock of the door from the inside and went straight to my car. I was terrified and shaking, and I wanted to call my dad and ask him to bring a gun, but my girlfriend convinced me not to. Instead, I called my friends and asked them to come with baseball bats. We waited outside to see if anyone would come out of the house, but no one did. I told my friends that we should go inside and confront the burglar with the bats they brought. However, when I tried to open the door, I realized it was locked. I remembered locking it before leaving. We decided to go to a restaurant and get the keys from my girlfriend's mom. I asked my friends to stay outside and call the police if they saw anyone. When we returned, we positioned ourselves behind the door, ready to open it. I unlocked the bottom lock and turned the knob, but to my surprise and fear, the top lock that required a key to lock was also locked. We didn't have the key when we originally ran out, and this confirmed to me that someone was inside. I unlocked the top lock using the keys we had, and we quickly entered the house, expecting to find someone inside. However, after searching the entire house and checking all the windows and doors, everything seemed untouched and locked. Since then, my friends and I have been unable to explain what happened that day. The top lock, which needed a key to be locked, was locked when we returned, even though we didn't have the key. Moreover, we still can't explain the human whistling sound that my girlfriend and I heard. The whistling had a mocking tone to it.
When her mom got home we told her what happened and she told us that morning she heard my girl laughing loud as fuck while the tv was on and she told her girlfriend " Natalie is laughing so loud I haven’t heard her laugh like that in a while", but my girl was not home that morning, she slept over at a friend… A few months later, my girlfriend's mom was preparing to move out of the house. She was doing some final checks and making sure all the doors were locked. However, the next day when she went back to the house, she noticed that the back doors were wide open. This seemed strange to her, so she locked the doors again and turned in the keys. A few days later, the realtor who had the keys called my girlfriend's mom and asked if she had entered the house and opened the back doors. She denied it, explaining that she didn't have the keys anymore. The realtor informed her that the previous day, when they went to check the house, the back doors were open, and they had closed and locked them. But when they returned the next day, the doors were wide open once again.

2023.06.04 06:08 postanator Teaching religion

I came across an article on the internet regarding Egypt and showed the kiddos some of the things about it before our upcoming museum trip. My son noticed the pyramid and the eye and made the connection that it was on the US dollar. My daughter commented how the Egyptians were devil worshippers. Confused, I asked what that was about and my wife chimed in that Egyptians talked to demons and that symbolism is used in devil worship. I mentioned how that is definitely not true but when I did that my daughter just said that I can’t know because I don’t believe in Jesus. I admitted that I am not religious and never have been but everyone being judgmental about others is wrong. Now my son won’t talk to me because I don’t believe in Jesus. The trip’s cancelled. My wife and I had it out about what to teach them and they chose god over any alternative and it’s their so I should just accept that. I feel like I don’t belong and don’t know what else to do. Any help here?

2023.06.04 06:08 vincent365 [Sun Care] Recommend some high uva sunscreens for both everyday use and water resistance

What I'm looking for in a sunscreen besides good protection is cosmetic elegance and a neutral scent (or at least bearable). If it's a fresh scent that is barely noticeable, I'm fine with.
I understand that it's hard to be cosmetically elegant, have high ppd, and be water resistant, so I'm willing to buy two different sets for different purposes. I normally wear one for the face, and the rest for the body.
I'd like:
  1. Sunscreens for everyday use (grocery shopping, walking to class, etc.)
  2. Sunscreens that are water resistant for swimming at the beach or for any outdoor activity. These will be for occasional wear.
Currently, I use Biore Watery Essence and Derma B Everyday Sun Block. I personally like Biore but dislike Derma B because of its chemically smell. I use the Biore for face, and Derma B for body
I have tried SunBum and Neutrogena Beach Defense, but I'm unsure of their UVA protection. The neutrogena was just too sweet-smelling for me and a bit too greasy.

2023.06.04 06:08 KAL8731 My thoughts on Maureen Ryan's Vanity Fair article on LOST.

Now that I've had a few days to process the information we've been given about the troubling behind the scenes issues, I've decided to talk about it.
Let me just preface this by saying that I'm proud of the cast and crew members that have spoken out against what went on behind the scenes & I hope they're doing well.
First, I'm going to respond to the criticisms of the way the POC characters were written in the show:
WALT: I was happy about the fact that his character was given a satisfying conclusion in "The New Man In Charge" & the epilogue did provide a valid reason for why Walt wasn't at the church at the end.
But, if you're planning on making a T.V. show in which the narrative is designed to cover a short period of time, don't write child characters into the show.
Also, Malcolm David Kelley could've returned as a series regular in the last 2 seasons. By the time Season 5 began filming, Kelley became the appropriate age to play Walt again.
MICHAEL: I liked Michael in Season 1, but I hated him in Seasons 2 & 4. I understand that his son was kidnapped, but he did a lot of stupid and horrifying things in order to get his son back.
Even when he went on his redemptive path in Season 4, I still hated him. He told Walt that he murdered Ana-Lucia & Libby to save him which further traumatized him & he tried to blame Ben for killing them despite the fact that Ben never told him to do so.
SAYID: Sayid was one of my favorite characters during the earlier Seasons, but they ruined the character in the latter half of the series. They turned him into an assassin who nearly murdered a 12 year old boy (yes, I know it was a young Ben Linus, but he was still a child).
JIN & SUN: I loved Sun throughout the show & I grew to love Jin After Season 1. But, Jin choosing to die with Sun was an incredibly selfish act. Did he not care about the fact that he had a daughter at home?
ANA LUCIA: I never liked her.
HURLEY: I always loved him.
EKO: I loved Eko.
ROSE: I didn't care for the character. I didn't hate her nor liked her, she might as well have been a redshirt with extended lines of dialogue. Love the actress though.

After hearing that Lindelof and Cuse didn't really give a shit about the POC characters in the show, it perfectly explains why most of these characters were written the way they were.
Also, Lindelof & Cuse revealed in a 2018 interview that Eko was supposed to die in the Season 3 finale, but they killed him off earlier than they were supposed to because the actor wanted to leave Hawaii.
They also revealed that Charlie's death replaced what would've been Eko's death in the Season 3 finale.

Here's my thoughts on Carlton Cuse:
The LOST writers felt that unlike Lindelof, Cuse didn't have any talent. I personally don't agree with this. He wasn't given credit, but Cuse collaborated with Jeffrey Boam on the scripts for Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade and Lethal Weapon 2--both of which are considered good sequels.
Boam & Cuse were the creators of "The Adventures Of Brisco County Jr." & Cuse was the showrunner. "Brisco County Jr." was well received by critics & it developed a cult following.
Cuse was the developer & co-showrunner of "Bates Motel" which was well received.
Cuse was the co-creator of "Colony" which was well received.
Cuse was the developer & co-showrunner on "Five Days At Memorial" which was well received.

As a person, Cuse is not only a massive asshole, but he's also a hypocrite.
In public, Cuse has spoken about his support for the #Metoo movement, the importance of diversity and inclusivity, & he's even hired women & a POC man to be his co-showrunners on his television projects. Knowing what we know now, he was clearly trying to make people think that he's someone that he isn't.
Carlton has a son named Nick Cuse who worked with Lindelof on "Watchmen", "The Leftovers", & "The Hunt".
Nick also worked on the mini-series adaptation of "Station Eleven" which was developed by "Leftovers" writer Patrick Somerville, and he was a writer on Cary Fukunaga's "Maniac". Nick also did some uncredited script rewrites for "No Time To Die".
After Fukunaga was exposed for grooming and sexually harassing young women, Nick had spoken out against him by saying that he was an abusive boss who took credit for scripts he had written.
According to people who claimed to have interacted with Cuse in the past (take this info with a grain of salt), Cuse was thoroughly enraged by the way Fukunaga treated Nick. Carlton told them that Nick told him horror stories about Fukunaga that he didn't reveal to the public, & he said he was proud of his son for speaking out against a man he called a "monster" & a "predator".
So, Carlton Cuse was upset about his son being treated poorly by somebody he worked with in the film industry, but he clearly doesn't give two shits about the way he treated his writers on LOST.
Lindelof & Cuse may not have groomed or sexually harassed anybody, but Carlton Cuse has no room to bitch about shitty bosses.

My thoughts on Damon Lindelof:
I honestly don't know what to think about Lindelof at this point.
He seems to want people to believe that he's changed in the years since LOST ended, & he has worked with more diverse writers on his subsequent shows, but Lindelof is a man who has openly admitted to being "a very talented liar".
What are your thoughts?

2023.06.04 06:08 _Sauza_ [PC] [2004-2007] Racing game that used physical cards for upgrades and power ups

Platform: PC
Estimated year of release: 2004-2007
Graphics/art style: from what I can recall, it was along the lines of an arcade graphics like those racing games at arcades. Art style was akin to asphalt mobile games.
Notable characters: the cars looked cool I guess haha
Notable gameplay mechanics: this is the big one, when you first bought the game at the store it came with this card reader thing and a starter pack of cards. Although you could progress in game, to unlock rarer cars you had to buy packs at the store which had those neat cars with all the stat boosts but it also came with power ups you could use during the races. I can’t recall exactly what kind of power ups. I believe general car upgrades came from these booster packs as well.
Other details: I don’t believe the game lasted past 2010 as I cannot recall playing it past that year. It might’ve been always online as well. Definitely had a multiplayer component to it, no career mode whatsoever for it.
Side note: I’ll be enterally grateful to whoever helps me identify this game. My late dad always bought me a booster pack every month and I’d like to relive that memory by seeing gameplay and the cards again somewhere online hopefully.
