2023.03.25 02:17 JNewsted1988 Sonic '06: My Take - Part 4/FINALE (Last Story)

We've finally made it... at last, we're on the Last Story. All 3 hedgehogs have had their stories lead up to this. How will it all end? Well, we're about to find out! Let us begin:
Somewhere in Soleanna's forest, Mephiles manages to get his hands on the purple Chaos Emerald, one which we haven't seen throughout this game. He finds Elise and Sonic walking through the field, and using the blinding power of the gem, comes up from behind the two when they least expect it, and (yes, I'm using language here, NO SHAME)... FUCKING KILLS SONIC by launching a beam of energy straight through his chest. Distraught by this, Elise manages to cry, unsealing Iblis after all these years. With the two halves of Solaris now freed, Mephiles calls on the Chaos Emerald he has to unite them together.
Meanwhile, in Dusty Desert, Team Dark is surrounded by a puddle of dark liquid from the army of Mephiles clones they took down at the end of Shadow's story. As he picks up and puts his Inhibitor Rings back on, the green and yellow Chaos Emeralds that were resting on the ground begin to glow, and the screen cuts to black. The next cutscene dramatically plays out, with Mephiles having all 7 Chaos Emeralds surrounding him (which I have NO clue where he got the blue and red ones from), and the two halves of Solaris finally coming together. A bright flash of light engulfs the entirety of Soleanna, where Amy, Tails, and Knuckles currently are.
Now in an endless void, all of the characters are found to be together, even Silver and Dr. Eggman have somehow appeared. Trying to figure out what was going on, Shadow and the others piece together the clues that Solaris has finally been reborn, but how is that possible? They then turn to see the dead body of Sonic resting against Princess Elise, realizing that this was all part of Mephiles' plan so she'd cry, and that EVERYONE, including Dr. Eggman, were played like cards in his hand.
As Amy mourns over the loss of the beloved blue hero, the princess senses Sonic's spirit in the wind, knowing that he's not dead yet, and that there's still time. Silver then comes up with the idea that he can be revived using the Chaos Emeralds' power, believing in the princess that she can bring him back. Dr. Eggman then analyzes where the fabled gems have gone, noting that Solaris scattered them all across time, and that the crew has to split up. Firm on their resolution, the group splits up, each setting out across the void to find them before it's too late.
And now it's time for... the End of the World. This final stage brings all 7 remaining characters - Tails, Omega, Knuckles, Silver, Rouge, Amy, and Shadow - on their quest to find the Chaos Emeralds before reality is destroyed by Solaris. This massive adventure split up into 7 sections, the first being with Tails in Crisis City as he searches for the yellow Emerald. His section plays out similar to Silver's level, with one major difference that can be considered the "gimmick" of this level.
Across all 7 portions of the stage, you'll come across these holes - called the "Eyes of Solaris" - that try to suck you in or toss objects at you. I really do like this idea as I think it's like Solaris' way of stopping you as you make your way towards each of the Chaos Emeralds, and one hit INSTANTLY kills you, even if you have Rings. You can briefly make them go away by touching a statue that lights up an orb, but it isn't long before they come back again. What I DON'T like, though? Well, that's coming up in a bit.
After Tails gets the yellow Emerald, the perspective switches to Omega, who's located in Flame Core as he's searching for the green Emerald. Again, it's mostly the same as before, and I believe you're in... I wanna say it's probably Shadow's part of the stage, but really, I have no idea since I feel like all the characters can share the same damn level at times like with White Acropolis, so I don't know which part you're exactly playing through. Anyways, Omega's hover ability will really come in handy here, as you can use it to skip most enemies (which is DEFINITELY recommended since time is literally of the essence here to save Sonic). Make your way up the lava-fall and grab the green Chaos Emerald and get the heck outta there!
The 3rd part of the stage takes place in Rouge's and Silver's Tropical Jungle level, only this time you're controlling Knuckles. Once again, you'll want to take the same approach as you did in Tails' and Omega's sections and not worry about combat and instead trying to find the cyan Emerald that's hidden somewhere here. Use the gliding ability that Knuckles has to land on certain platforms and you can skip basically the entire section. You may have to do some climbing on walls to glide to where the Emerald is, but other than that, his section should be a breeze. Grab that gem and GO!
I should also mention that the Eyes you come across can also suck in enemies and nearby objects, which can be incredibly helpful and harmful at the same time when you're trying to make it through the stage as quickly as possible. I do like how not even Iblis' monsters themselves are not safe from the wrath of Solaris, so it's like EVERYTHING is trying to stop you from making it to the end. But they won't stop the hope to revive Sonic!
Keeping on with the stage, the 4th section has Silver navigating through Sonic's portion of Dusty Desert, using his psychokinesis and hover abilities to make his way through the treacherous landscape and find the silver Chaos Emerald. And... well, I'm just gonna say this: I didn't like this section at all. Not one bit. Why is that, you may ask? Well, it's surprisingly simple, and it's a reason that'll come up again with another character not that far down the line:
I swear to God, he moves at the speed of freakin' molasses, and that's not exactly helpful when you're trying to dodge those Eyes that try to suck you in and KILL YOU IN ONE HIT. It's even worse when objects come flying out of nowhere, hit and knock you back and into the things you can't even see and give you no chance of escape! There are quite a few points where I was literally saying to my TV, "COME ON, MOVE IT, SILVER!!!" because he's just moving along at a strolling pace when he should be, I don't know... running to get the gem? Ugh.
Thank God he has the Teleport Dash upgrade you can buy for him in his story, as it'll be quite helpful when trying to escape the pull of Solaris. I believe this is the only time in the game I actually found that ability to be useful for him, because I barely remember using it AT ALL in his main story other than trying it out at various places in Soleanna's hub areas. But, anyways, you get through his section like all the ones before him and the ones after him: make it to the end and avoid any enemies that come in your way, using the orb thingies to temporarily cause the Eyes of DEATH to go away. Get the silver Emerald and meet up with the others!
The 5th section sends you to Tails' portion of Wave Ocean as you glide across the waterways with Rouge in search of the purple Emerald. You can use the same strategy here that you did with Knuckles since you don't need to worry about combat and should climb the pillars, jump off, and glide on through, only really landing to activate the orbs. Compared to Silver's section, this part is actually quite a breeze, so make your way to the gem like the good treasure hunter Rouge is and now there's only 2 more left to get!
Things are getting rather chilly, as now we're in White Acropolis for the 6th portion of the stage with Amy making her way towards the blue Emerald. She's finding herself on the lower route of Rouge's and Tails' segment, and she has to use her hammer and double jumping prowess to get by. 6th verse is somehow same as the 1st, so try to get by all the enemies doing as little combat as necessary and focus on using the orbs and making your way towards the Emerald. However, there's one major problem I have with this section that also happens with Silver, and it's that just like her partner, Amy is SO UNBELIVABLY SLOW. I don't know why this is, but this really bothers me especially when I'm trying to get away from the Death Eyes which still instantly kill you. The good news is that this section is relatively short-lived, so the pain doesn't last for very long. Get that blue diamond and now it's all up to the Ultimate Lifeform!
The 7th and final section of the stage revolves around Shadow as he makes his way through the ruins of Kingdom Valley to find the red Chaos Emerald, the last of them to be found. Much like Flame Core's segment, I have no idea which character's part of the stage you're going through, because I'm mainly trying to make it to the end of the stage. Just like before, make it to the end of the stage doing as little combat as possible and use the orbs to take out the Eyes of Solaris, ride the eagle, and complete the stage as you grab the final Chaos Emerald! And... that's a wrap on the End of the World!
Wow... what a stage. I will say this about it: Even though there were a few problems I had with this stage, which included the slowness of Silver and Amy, sometimes the wonkiness of the camera causing you to get hit by things you can't even see, and getting a Game Over on ANY section - yes, even the last Shadow section, which DID happen to me - causes you to do the ENTIRE thing again starting back at Tails' Crisis City segment. But those issues didn't stop me from enjoying the stage as a whole, as I did enjoy the gimmick of traversing through nearly every stage of the game (except for Aquatic Base and Radical Train) only with Solaris hot on your trail. This is one of those levels that would indeed work had this game been given more time in the oven, because this was quite the fun trek!
With the cast reunited and all 7 Chaos Emeralds gathered, Princess Elise says a prayer, wanting to talk to Sonic and save the world once again. She then kisses Sonic (why?...), and that, with the power of the gems, revives the blue hero and transforms him into Super Sonic. He thanks Elise as he falls to her knees, and then Shadow and Silver join in and transform themselves. With the 3 super-powered hedgehogs transformed, they blast off into the sky, everybody cheering them on from below.
And here it comes... the final battle. The battle is split into 2 phases and every character is used in their own way. You start with Super Silver and use the meteors that Solaris throws at you and damage his left arm. It may not do much damage, but keep it up and it will eventually shatter. From there, switch to Super Shadow and use the Chaos abilities he has and damage the right arm in the same way. Just remember to keep moving! Once that's done, switch to Super Sonic and keep boosting into the core and Phase 1 is complete!
However... it's not over yet. The god comes back up and goes absolutely out of control as an orchestrated version of "His World" plays in the background. You need to constantly switch between all 3 hedgehogs and deal damage to his core, but it's best if you attack it while it's firing a laser at you since it exposes the weak point. Silver may unfortunately not be of much use here, so you'll want to rely on Sonic and Shadow. However, keep it up and he goes down, ENDING SOLARIS ONCE AND FOR ALL!
As the 3 hedgehogs land back in front of the other heroes, time and space is restored and we eventually see the Duke and young Elise come across the true form of Solaris. He explains that once it grows, they can eventually get control of time and that Elise can eventually see her mother again. As they walk away, the current form of the Princess and Sonic walk up to the flame and take it into their hands. She says that if they were to blow it out, the Flames of Disaster incident would have never happened and that everything would continue on, but that she would have never met Sonic. She tears up slightly saying that the truth is that she doesn't care what happens to the world, but Sonic tells her to just smile and that it'll all be okay.
With that, she does so and blows out the flame, sending everything back to the Soleanna Festival that was seen at the start of the game. Sonic can be seen running by at one point, wanting to get a view. As he speeds by, he creates a wind which Elise calls somehow familiar to her. One of the feathers from her hair floats up into the air and passes in front of the moon, which Sonic is viewing from a rooftop, and the screen fades to black, ending Sonic '06.
And that's the game. Hard to believe it all ends with it acting like it never existed in the first place, but it all ends where it all began. I don't have anything else to say other than this game surprised me more than I initially thought it would. I came into this game expecting it to be bad and what I came across was something that had tons of potential that never got to be fleshed out.
So... what do I think about this game as a whole? Honestly... I simply don't know. It might take me a bit to decide what I truly think about it all, since this game did quite a few things good and a few things bad. But all I can say is, I'm glad I can finally put this game behind me and I don't have to play this game again... unless I decide to play Project '06 in the future, that is, and I probably will... once I find a way to.
Now, I think it's time I play a LOT of Sonic Generations. I'll see you all next time with another take on a new Sonic game!!

2023.03.25 02:16 autotldr How country pubs are being saved by locals

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 75%. (I'm a bot)
As the challenges faced by hospitality businesses grow, more pubs are being taken over by groups of community members trying to keep an integral part of their small towns alive.
Across regional Victoria, pubs in places like Apsley, Lockington, Boolarra, Sea Lake, Dingee, Nandaly and Yinnar are owned by groups of locals.
The Railway Hotel in Dingee, central Victoria was last year struggling to find a buyer when more than 20 shareholders decided to take ownership and re-open the pub after almost two years of COVID closure.
Mates buy pub thanks to night on the beers Over a few beers in the outback, these schoolmates in their 20s joked about buying one of the most remote pubs in the country.
Terry Kiley, a local farmer and one of those instrumental in getting the pub back up and running, said its closure had left a big hole in the community.
The money to renovate and reopen the pub came from memberships, with a minimum buy-in of $250, although many people gave much more knowing there would be no dividend and any profits would be given to the Nandaly Progress Association.

2023.03.25 02:15 No_Contribution_7117 Can I change my delivery point from park and loop to dismount?

I've done my new route for a few weeks now and one of the parts has the mailboxes all on the curbside and its about 1.5hrs long. I guess you can park and loop if you want to, but I prefer to just dismount it because I'm getting tired of walking and want to minimize it as much as possible.
In the new red book adjustments, can I change that from P/L to D/M? Are there certain criterias for this kind of situation?

2023.03.25 02:13 Parfanity 34/M - My body is trying to tell me something, possible pre-diabetes?

BEFORE YOU MAKE COMMENTS SUCH AS "GO SEE A DOCTOR", OR "GO TO THE GYM," read the thread or simply move on because I am here out of desperation and looking for things that I simply have not thought of (Isn't that the point of these things?).
Early Feb 2022 - I am a healthy man who works out daily, 180 pounds, 6,2, slim - no issues
March 2022 - July 2022
Symptoms I never experienced before:
Gradual weight gain with no changes in my diet or workout
Hands and feet tingling or becoming bright red and swollen for short periods of time (remands syndrome symptoms)
While doing workouts like a Farmer's Walk (where you hold heavy weights in each hand), I do them consistently for years with no problem. Now I notice I can't grip them without my hands feeling like they are on fire.
Insomnia, I can't sleep, and when I do, I can't wake up
In July, a buddy of mine who is ten years older and has a body fat percentage of less than 10%, and is a health nut got me on his workout regime, diet ...etc
From July - Jan 2023, I followed his plan, ate the right foods, took the right supplements, and did everything to FEEL BETTER (I know it takes longer than six months to lose weight, but the point of all this was not to lose weight but to overcome the symptoms listed above, to feel better, to feel like a man again and not a shadow of his former self)
While having a workout buddy was great, and I did begin to get a nice routine going nothing changed. In the past, whenever I was feeling low, I would hit the gym, and after a few weeks, I got a snowball effect going as I workout; I felt better, which led me to workout harder, and eventually, I got to a place where I look and feel at my best.
This time, It was different. It was an uphill battle, and my body wouldn't get momentum built up. I had to fight hard every day to get to the gym.
In Jan, I had enough and turned to doctors - I had my first physical, an EDG, colonoscopy, and CT scan. Besides my T taking a significant drop since I last took a test a couple of years ago, I am a healthy man with higher than normal blood pressure and cholesterol (no idea how, as my diet consists of protein shakes, lean chicken, cauliflower rice, and vegetables)
I can't tell you how irritating it is when doctors tell you there is nothing wrong with you, but you know there is because, in 1 year, you gained 20 lbs with no changes in diet. Your hands and feet tingle all the time; you can't concentrate, you can't get out of bed (yes, I've been on anti-depressants for six months, no changes), you can't sleep, you feel hungry and dizzy but have no appetite. I can go on, but I'll stop here.
I am hoping someone can offer some guidance, someone who has felt similar symptoms or tell me to go see a certain type of doctor or get a certain type of test.
I have tried posting on Reddit in other similar subs, and again I want to make it clear don't focus on the weight loss; it's not the issue, just a symptom I highlight because it's not my core issue. For some reason, everyone focuses on that part and ignores all the other issues.
I would like to return to my normal weight, but my main concern is something new that is happening where at night, my hands and feet feel like they are itching, but when I itch, the feeling doesn't go away because it is itching from the inside.
The only thing I can think of is that diabetes runs in my family, type 2, and after hours of doing my own research, insulin resistance best explains my symptoms.
I just want a better direction of what type of doctor to see before wasting anymore $$$ on guess tests which is costing my student budget too much.

Hogue Deka in Magnacut. I had two versions, 1) SMKW with a clip point and 2) Wharncliffe with polymer scales. I swapped blades and sold off the polymer version a while ago. Now this is on the chopping block to fund other purchases. A couple of small marks on the clip, but no other issues to report. Centering is dead on. No marks on the black finished blade and scales are in great shape. Includes taco and box which is a little banged up and it will say clip point on it, if that matters.

2023.03.25 02:12 GMETendies4Lyfe HSA Strategy Help

Long time listener, first time caller, (27M)
Last year, my wife (27) worked for Travel Healthcare Company A for 6 months, and Travel Healthcare Company B for 6 months. With THCA, an HSA was opened and the balance reached $750, just below the $1,000 threshold to invest. It's getting hit with $3/month of fees, and is down to $720.
THCB had an exclusive contract, so my wife switched companies for a sweet job. Shortly into the contract with THCB, we decided THCA was a better long-term fit for my wife, and we would be going back to them after the contract was over. To keep things simple, we didn't open any retirement accounts with THCB.
We re-enrolled in an HSA with THCA contributing $70/week, and yesterday, we should have crossed the $1,000 threshold to be able to invest. Instead, she has the old HSA with $720 and a new HSA with Optum that has about $350.
I did some research, and it seems like the best option now is to roll the $720 into a Fidelity HSA. Their account has no fees or investment minimums, and I can pick their equivalent of VTI for basically no expense ratio. The other part of the plan is to leave a few hundred in the Optum account and transfer the rest of the contributions once a month to Fidelity.
I have no experience doing a HSA rollover, so I just want to make sure my line of thinking has no tax implications.

2023.03.25 02:12 StepwiseUndrape574 GTA 6 Report Details Rockstar’s First Bonnie And Clyde-Like Female Protagonist

Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most profitable entertainment franchises in the history of games. It came along as a return to form after what many fans would argue was a misstep with the more gritty and realistic GTA 4. Originally released back in 2013 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3—yes, it spans three console generations—developer Rockstar has supported the game's online mode with continual updates adding new content, new areas, and even all-new mechanics.
GTA V was such a runaway success—and GTA The Trilogy: Definitive Edition was such a dumpster fire—that Rockstar gave up working on a Red Dead Redemption 2 DLC, and has now reportedly abandoned plans to remaster more of its beloved older titles to instead focus on both further GTA Online content as well as the development of GTA 6.
gtaonline fukaru
Naturally, expectations for GTA 6 are incredibly high, and given the advanced age of GTA V, fans are chomping at the bit for any bit of news. That's why there's so much buzz around a report at Bloomberg that focuses on Rockstar's new corporate culture. Company co-founder Dan Houser left Rockstar in 2020, and ever since then the development house has been trying to reshape a corporate culture that the report refers to as being "like a frat house".
Given the nature and tone of the humor in the Grand Theft Auto series, it's really not surprising to hear that the atmosphere inside Rockstar was juvenile and chauvinistic. The report remarks that the workplace culture at Rockstar was "full of drinking, brawling, and excursions to strip clubs." That may sound like a good time to some, but it's admittedly not very professional.
gta1 katie Katie from the OG Grand Theft Auto (1997) on PC (left) and Game Boy Color (right).
As part of the report, author Jason Schreier casually reveals that GTA 6 will have at least two playable protagonists, and that one of them will be a Latina woman. This technically isn't the first playable woman nor even the first playable Hispanic woman in the GTA series; the very first GTA game featured a Latina named "Katie" as one of its eight playable characters.
Still, very few of the series' modern fans even remember the old DOS-based Grand Theft Auto, so we can forgive everyone for forgetting about poor Katie. Regardless, the new girl will apparently be part of a Bonnie-and-Clyde-like crime duo, calling to mind the partnership between Claude and Catalina in the beginning of Grand Theft Auto III. Hopefully the partnership between the new player characters in GTA 6 doesn't end the same way that one did.

I bought a second-hand bike rack from an apartment building that was getting rid of its surplus ones. I'd like to secure it on my front veranda so that we can park our bikes there (unfortunately this is the best option for us to store our bikes given the amount of outdoor space we have).
So, doing my research I understand that if these were being secured into concrete (as it would be in the context of an apartment building or on a footpath) you would use masonry anchors. But since I want to secure onto my timber verandah, do I just use security bolts (e.g Or is there a different way? I understand that it's not the most secure option, but do people think it would be enough to deter all but the most determined thieves?
(Sorry if this is the wrong sub! appreciate all replies and happy to be re-directed )

2023.03.25 02:11 autotldr Jordan's parliament displays Israel with Palestine-Jordan flag, calls to expel envoy

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 75%. (I'm a bot)
Jordan's parliament on Wednesday recommended expelling Israel's ambassador, while displaying a map at the center of its chamber featuring Jordan, Israel, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip - all under the colors of the Jordanian and Palestinian flags.
Symbolic votes to expel Israel's envoy are common during times of heightened tensions between Jerusalem and Amman.
In May 2021, Jordanian lawmakers unanimously called for the government to expel Israel's envoy amid Operation Guardian of the Walls, an 11-day war between Israel and terror groups in the Gaza Strip.
"Israel is committed to the 1994 peace agreement with Jordan. There has been no change in the position of the State of Israel, which recognizes the territorial integrity of the Hashemite Kingdom," the ministry tweeted in both Hebrew and English.
An Israeli diplomat told The Times of Israel on Wednesday that Jerusalem "Understands Jordanian sensitivities," adding that they were "Working to send conciliatory messages."
"Israel's connection with Jordan is crucial for regional calm and stability," the official said.

2023.03.25 02:11 nomorelandfills Woofy Wishes (Iran), Happy Tails Pet Resort and Camp (Canada), and Niagra Dog Rescue (also Canada)

Woofy Wishes (Iran), Happy Tails Pet Resort and Camp (Canada), and Niagra Dog Rescue (also Canada)

I came across this indictment of international rescue on Facebook. While I agree with much of what they say below, my enthusiasm is tempered by a) their adhering to the rescue code of omerta wrt naming names (the rescue names can be found in earlier postings) and b) the fact that despite detailing how the dog is simply not a pet, they still throw the adopters under the bus in the comments. And then, delving deeper, it became apparent how familiar they were with the dog's history, and the sheer insanity of expecting anyone to put up with this dog as a pet.
Adopters meeting bus (initial line is about the steak incident)
If it was the right home, you would think they'd have realized that they set that up. Sadly and very unfortunately it was not the right home for dog, no fenced yard as this she needed, did not listen to the advice on proceeding slowly, and the wife and kids were absolutely terrified of her.
Also cat-aggressive
and dog-aggressive
Some dogs she will accept, but as she aged she likes fewer and fewer dogs. She can be very reactive with them.
Let's go back to the beginning, when the bloom was still on the rescue rose.

July 2018 - rescue #1 - Woofy Wishes - appears to be a dog rescue group working out of the Middle East.
This is a very different narrative than the one offered later, where Tara is given up because Iran is a cruel place to own dogs. But it does jibe with the throwaway comment made by the camp rescuer that she's cat-aggressive.

Fancy and Deuce
November 2018 - the backstory of the dogs in Canada

February 2019 - rescue #1 chimes in

April 2019 - adopters drive 4 hours to meet Tara.
March 2020
This is Tara... She has a special story and so needs to have a special person (other than me)... She is not a kids dog... She is not an "instantly yours" dog... Tara came from Iran through two different rescues... She failed in their attempts with foster homes, failed with a behaviourist, failed in a conventional kennel... and came to us where she relaxed, learned how to run and be happy for the first time in her life. You may remember her video with me where she lovingly jumps on me when I fell backwards in the snow... When she knows you she is 100% trustworthy... She has never bitten anyone BUT she lets everyone know (other than her immediate) she could. She's a watch dog... She's incredibly intelligent and very loving (with me, and those who know her)... Her rescue placed her into the wrong home... It immediately failed and she was returned... and her boarding paid until May 31, 2019... and since then she's been in limbo... They did not chose to do a Rehome package with us, and do not communicate with us (phone or email)... A rescue out of Alberta once shared her post saying that they needed someone to fly her to them... but... no one paid us... no one instructed us or contacted us... I wrote them to ask what would happen to her there if she lost her security place? No reply and nothing happened.... She needed to be re-vaccinated and again... no reply... We took her to the vet and she was great until they tried to give her a needle... They tried a pole to give her tranquillization and she broke the needle... They put her leash through the hinges on the door frame and wedged her behind the door to tranquilize her... Then all was done... Cost around the $200 and included the nails... Expect that will be the outcome for all vaccinations in the years to come... How we would rehome her if it was up to us... Would be to accept written applications with lots of details on the home, who'd she'd live with, what kind of lifestyle would she have, past dog experience, what kind of references they had... and narrowed it down to our best candidate(s)... Taking a month to two months to make our decision... and then "gradually" introduce them to Tara for play dates here, then eventually visits and play dates there, and gradually sleep overs... with gaps between so she's excited to see the person(s) in a happy we're special friends... And eventually both Tara, the prospective home and we'd know... It was her decision... She's not been a house dog and would have to gradually be introduced to the home... She has possession issues with raw meat, bones, soft furry things as in toys, boots, etc....Not with me... So not with her eventual trusted person(s)... She has her own room and court yard at the resort and she's very good here... But when strangers going by ... she goes ballistic to protect her space... again no bites... No one pushes her... No one would... and she does not do that with me or her trusted people. The other home had taken her straight into their home with compete freedom... It needed to be more gradually earned. They put meat packaging with fresh blood into an open garbage bag and she took it and snarled like a demon and refused to give it up... The husband did get it from her. She knew the steaks (raw meat) was in their fridge and when the wife opened the door, she got between the wife and the fridge door, snarling... The wife jumped back and she removed the meat...and ate it. The teenagers in the house hid in their bedrooms due to Tara's dominance... No bites... but certainly not the right home. She likes the vehicle. She likes to go places on a leash... She is very affectionate with those she knows. And again, she has never bitten, but she sure puts the fear she would into anyone she wants to put the brakes on... She is not fearful, but one of the strongest dogs in spirit you will ever meet. Her past in Iran was a small cement area behind a house and her owner was an older woman. If you love your dogs in Iran, someone kills them because its "our culture" not theirs... You can't walk them on the streets... They get very little social interaction... and they know their lives are endangered so they are either like children who are abused are, or they are fearfully aggressive (like Fancy)... or they are extremely strong spirited like Tara is... You earn Tara's trust. I realize there are very few of you who would have the ability or desire to have a dog like Tara... but if you do... and you are her right person... She would be an exceptional dog... One of the best of your lifetime... I don't need another dog... I will love and care for her, but it really wasn't wasn't the agreement that we were to keep her for life. Had we been contracted to do a rehome, then we would have accepted that as a possibility... but we would have been able to do the process as outlined above... Since... Tara is in limbo... due to us not getting the paperwork for ownership and/or rehoming... I hope that this post will result in it being "quietly sent to me"... So in the meantime... I will start to accept requests, serious requests from responsible, well-versed with strong, intelligent dogs... She is much like a Belgium Malinois... a very STRONG temperamented Belgium Malinois... She does not have a ball drive, but she is treat motivated... and wants to please... if she accepts you as someone who is her trusted friend. There you go... Its out in the universe... I pray that the right person(s) will feel this challenge is for them... and that they are correctly situated in their lives and able to do the cross visiting and gradual process... to take Tara from where she is rooted and safe... into where she knows you are her everything... and she has found her humans for the rest of her life...
And a comment on the March 2020 post
Notice the date - this was 3 years ago. The dog remains with them. No one has had that ability and that desire.

2023.03.25 02:11 autotldr Ukraine using Soviet-era choppers to pummel Russia from afar

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 55%. (I'm a bot)
DONETSK REGION, Ukraine - Skimming the treetops, three Soviet-era attack helicopters bank and swoop down on a field after an early-morning mission to the front lines in the fight against Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
Each day, they might fly three or four sorties, says the commander, whose two-crew Mi-24 helicopter, built about 40 years ago, is older than he is.
The conflict in Ukraine is largely an artillery war, with territory being fought for inch by inch under a barrage of shells and missiles.
Ukraine's aviation capabilities play a significant role in the fight, the pilot said.
ADVERTISEMENT. "The importance of the helicopters is huge," said the commander, who is part of Ukraine's 12th Army Aviation Brigade.
Several countries, including the United States and Britain, have pledged to send, or have already sent, helicopters to Ukraine as part of military aid since the start of the war sparked by Russia's invasion in Feb 2022.

2023.03.25 02:11 Jersycurb Mac Pro 2013 full upgrade path

Hi everyone,
I wanted to share my journey and reflections on my recently completed upgrade for a 2013 Mac Pro. I was hesitant committing to the upgrade path, knowing full well it’s rather limited and difficult, especially coming from a 5,1.
Never-the-less, the ‘trashcan’ always held a special place in my heart since it’s release, and I always dreamed of having one occupying a spot on my desk.
So, in August last year I picked one up from an eBay auction for $700 AUD. The model was the 6 Core 32GB RAM and D500 GPU. It also came with two Thunderbolt 2 cables. I decided that I would take my time over 6-12 months researching upgrading.
My first decision was to knock out the ‘easy’ upgrades. This consisted of:
Additional 32GB RAM for $45 AUD 1TB NVME storage and adapter for $112 AUD
The stock 256GB Storage is criminally small, and although Apple’s intent was for modular external storage, that just didn’t happen to the extent that in 2023 it’s a viable storage option for everyday use. Worse still was their decision to make the internal drive proprietary, but luckily adapters exist to swap in standard drives. This drastically reduced the price.
However, the removed drive is pretty much useless, as to my knowledge there isn’t a cost effective bi-directional adapter to enable the drive to be repurposed in an enclosure or other machine (apart from a similar year MacBook). So, I now have a useless 256GB drive.
“Can’t innovate my ass.”
Next up was the CPU. There was plenty of debate over the ‘best’ CPU, with contenders being a mix of 8, 10 and 12 core. I decided to go with the e5-2697 12 core from a good deal on eBay, picking it up for $50 AUD.
Installation was - well - no harder or easier from what I anticipated. Plenty of reading and researching forecasted that it is a long, slow, and fiddly process, all of which proved true. However, patience and pair of careful hands made the job relatively textbook. (That final CPU bracket though!) All up, the tear down, installation and reassembly took about 1.5 hours.
On reassembly, I was successfully rocking a 12 Core, 64BG, 1TB trash can. No boot up issues or any temperature discrepancies. It is worth pointing out that the single core scores are slightly lower, which makes sense. However, the multicore score is drastically improved (almost double).
My last hurdle with the GPU. Knowing full well I was stuck with another proprietary limitation, I turned to eGPUs. Although never officially supported on the Mac Pro 2013, there was plenty of evidence that using a T2>T3 adapter ($65 AUD) would enable a Thunderbolt 3 eGPU enclosure to connect.
So my hunt began, and I managed to score an OWC Mercury Helios FX 650 with a AMD XFX RX580 8GB for $300 AUD.
After applying Kryptonite, the EGPU ran perfectly. This also means my core temperatures are considerably lower with the eGPU absorbing some of the grunt.
So far I haven’t had a lot of opportunity to do real world testing, but I haven’t encountered any crashes or oddities either.
All up, the cost ran me $1,272 AUD. For the power and compatibility, I believe it’s a good price, especially as I was able to spread the cost over 6 months. Additionally, the NVMe and eGPU can easily be repurposed, so that cost can float across multiple devices.
Would I recommend this to anyone in 2023-2024? Depends. If you already have a Mac Pro and are comfortable tinkering with it, go for it. For my workflow, the IO and software still works for me, although is on the fringe of redundancy.
Should you go down this path fresh? If you can find the machine and parts for the right price, of course! It will require patience and a savvy shopper attitude, but it’s not impossible. Buying a Mac Pro with some or all of these upgrades will be pricey, so starting with a base machine and slowly building it up generally proves more cost effective. The CPU though - I stress - is a tedious and finicky process.
However, with the performance and cost of the new M2 machines, even the standard Mac Mini out performs the 2013 Mac Pro. After all, it is a 10 year old machine now.
At the end of the day, the trashcan still is a strange and compelling machine, that has found its haters and cult followers. Even without the upgrades I really enjoy having it as my daily driver, but it’s now just that much better until it’s eventually retired.
I ended up filming the tear down process so for anyone interested I may upload it along with some benchmarking. Otherwise, thanks for reading and feel few to ask any questions :).
Item Cost Base system 700 Storage 1tb 109 Cabling 65 RAM 32GB 45 CPU 12 Core 50 eGPU enc. 320 GPU -
U noob

2023.03.25 02:09 Smart_Meringue_5243 Should I keep no contact? Is this relationship salvageable?

Some Background: My mother abandoned me when I was 3 years old after my father had an affair with her best friend. My father married her best friend and moved away leaving me and my mother behind. He took his cat though. my mother didn't really want to be a mother, and she sent me to go live with my father. My father and stepmother were horribly physically, emotionally, and psychologically abusive.
During my childhood, my mother almost never contacted me in any way. I saw her five times from Age 3 until 18. Once, I stayed with her for 6 months when I was 11. she told me she was going to file for custody of me because from the stories I had told her about my life, she knew that I was being abused by my father and stepmother.
That was a lie however. She sent me back to live with my father and stepmother who continued to abuse me until my 18th birthday.
When I turned 18, my mother wanted to have a really close friendly relationship with me. I was really angry about her abandoning me twice. I didn't trust her and I didn't really feel that we had the foundation for a relationship, but I desperately wanted her love and approval.
Even though she hadn't raised me and she sent me to live with people who she knew were actively abusing me, she wanted me to treat her like she was the best mother ever. she would constantly tell stories about when I was under 3 years old. It made me really uncomfortable. I would ask her to stop telling the stories but she wouldn't.
When I got engaged, I invited her to my wedding which was a Orthodox wedding. for those of you who don't know, there is a very strict dress code for women that involves necklines that cover the collarbones, shirts that have sleeves which cover the elbows and skirts that go below the knee. I asked my mother to follow this dress code and she agreed to, but she showed up at the wedding with a blouse that was a deep v-neck. she wasn't showing cleavage or anything, but it was horribly inappropriate. she was also wearing open toed shoes which I had asked her specifically not to wear. When I confronted her on this, she basically dismissed my boundary and said that because she wasn't showing cleavage and because her shoes were very cute sandals that it was fine for her not to respect the dress code.
when I was pregnant, I told her, and she announced my pregnancy publicly before I had the opportunity to do so. It really hurt me that she told my grandmother and other family members before I had the opportunity to. when I tried to talk to her about this gently, telling her how much it had hurt me and how I would appreciate her not sharing my news with people especially after I had specifically asked her not to, she got very angry with me and told me I had no right to tell her what she can talk with her family members about.
These are some of the big events, however there have been a million other boundary violations and disrespectful actions towards me. over the years I went from wanting to have frequent contact with her to very low contact. especially When I became a mother, I realized I would never understand her or the choices that she made regarding me.
I have been living abroad, in Mexico, for the last 11 years. I live in a good area and I have a great job here. I invited my mother to come to visit us several years ago, before the pandemic and she gave me a lot of excuses why she couldn't come. She said that the flight would be too expensive. She said that she didn't have a way to get from the airport to our home. When my husband and I offered to pick her up from the airport and even to pay for her flight, she finally told us that it's because we live in Mexico. She doesn't feel it's a very nice place and she has never had a desire to come to this country.
This hurt very much because she lives several hours from the border in a city in America that is way more violent than where I live. The statistics for violent crime show that there is a higher rate of crime in her city than mine. I tried to tell her that she would be safe and that I really wanted to visit her to visit us in our home because I'm very proud of the life that my husband and I have built for ourselves. I told her she could stay in our guest room and that we would take her to the park we go to and the children science museum we frequent and our favorite restaurants, etc. she insulted Mexico and refused.
it left such a bad taste in my mouth that I didn't speak to her for the greater part of a year.
Then, she emailed me out of the blue about 9 months later and it was a one-line email. she said, I like where you live.
I obviously thought that she could be in my city so I emailed her back asking her directly if she were. no answer. I called her cell phone. no answer. I texted her and received no answer.
about a week later, she emailed me again telling me that she was no longer in my city but had spent two weeks there and she really thought it was a very fine place. she never tried to call me or see me at all but she traveled internationally to the city that I live in and she contacted me just so that I would know that she had been there and had Made no effort to contact me at all. It really hurt my feelings.
I wrote to her telling her that it hurt my feelings and letting her know that I felt she owed me an apology and an explanation for doing that. She has done a lot of hurtful things to me over the years, but that was so over the top and ridiculous - - even for her - - so I felt that it was a fair request.
Instead, she told me that she had already apologized to me. she insisted that she had apologized and I was refusing to accept her apology. she had never apologized to me. I'm certain of it. However, this made me doubt myself and I installed an automatic call recorder in an attempt to Discover if I was remembering things incorrectly or if she does lie constantly and then try to rewrite the truth.
she never apologized for the Mexico fiasco. However, I felt guilty after not speaking to her for a while and I initiated contact and we had low contact for a while that seemed to be going well. what I mean is she wasn't outright rude or disrespectful or passive aggressive. I was calling her every week and she would answer most times and we would make small talk for a few minutes.
Then, on one of our weekly calls in October of last year (2022), she told me in October of last year (2022) that she would be moving to another part of the country, very far away from the international border. Since we had had a few months of decent text exchanges, I decided to call her. During that call, in November 2022, I invited her again to come to visit us before she moves because I don't know when I will ever see her again because of how far away she's moving and how bad our relationship has always been.
I was hoping that she would see this as an opportunity to bury the hatchet and reconnect. instead she told me no. She flat out refused. she answered so quickly it was obvious that she didn't even consider it at all. It was like a reflex refusal. I know people can't always travel when they want to, I'm not so unreasonable, but she has over a year before she moves so it would have felt better if she at least pretended to consider it.
We spoke a week later and she asked me if after she moved my family and I would be willing to travel to see her at her new house. I told her no. I reminded her that we had invited her to visit us twice and she refused both times. I went on to say that I am not willing to travel so far to visit someone who has refused to visit me.
She told me that she never refused to visit me. I told her that she had. I'm certain that she did refuse, because I recorded that phone call and I had listened to it several times. there is a clear refusal. She told me that I had not recorded it. That I was lying. I emailed her the audio from the call. I tried to call her the next week but she didn’t answer. Same thing the week after that. Same thing every week since I gave up trying to speak to her over the phone in early February 2023. The last time I called her, I left her a pretty curt voicemail. I told her that if she wanted to speak to me that she should answer the phone or return my calls. A few weeks later she sent me a message at just after 7am, as I was getting ready to go to an important work meeting. In her message, she complained to me about the voicemail. She told me that it is not appropriate to contact someone and not ask them how they are doing and give them a polite greeting. She told me that she did not like my voicemail and asked me not to leave her voicemails like that. I messaged her back and told her that I will not be leaving any more voicemails, as she has not answered or returned my calls in over 4 months and I have given up. I also told her that she was messaging me at 7am to complain about a voicemail I left weeks ago and to please not message me just to complain, until after 6pm, when I get off of work.
She messaged me back and said, ‘' No worries, won't be bothering anymore. Enough take care don't text or call you won't get a response. You have made yourself clean when it comes to me.' So I blocked her. On my phone. On social media. On everything I could think of. However, I didn’t think of blocking her on my old email address. A few weeks later I was looking for an old document in that old email account and I saw that she had emailed me. Here is the exchange:
MOM: Sat, Mar 4, 8:25 PM
Dear daughter, if someone isn't able to do something but could and wants to do that thing at another time it is not refusing that thing. I truly hope we can get past all this time disagreeing with each other and go forward . When I told you not to text me it isn't that I don't want a relationship with you. A relationship can't be based on the actions that have been going on between us. Love you always mom
ME: Thu, Mar 9 12:17PM
Mom, You said to me in a text message from Feb 22nd, 2023 at 7:28 AM, and I am quoting you directly: ' No worries, won't be bothering anymore. Enough take care don't text or call you won't get a response. You have made yourself clean when it comes to me.'
By refusing to answer or return my calls for months while I consistently reached out to you and by sending me that text message above, you have made yourself very clear that you do not want a relationship with me.
Even in this email that you sent, the one I am responding to, You began it immediately by arguing with me. Hardly a way to mend a relationship. Just stop.
MOM Thu, Mar 9 12:19PM
Daughter I am sorry you feel the way you do. I only wish we both could, never mind i will be sending things i was going to send for a while to you soon love you mom.
ME: 1:04 PM
Mom, Saying "I'm sorry you feel the way you do" is not an authentic apology because it doesn't take responsibility for your actions or behavior. It is a common example of a non-apology apology, which is a statement that appears to express regret or remorse but does not truly acknowledge wrongdoing.
An authentic apology should include an admission of responsibility for your actions, an expression of regret or remorse, and a commitment to making amends or taking steps to prevent the same behavior from happening again in the future. It should focus on the impact of your actions on the other person, rather than their reaction or feelings about the situation.
Just STOP. Please do not force me to block you here as well
MOM: I have apologized so many times. you don't need to block me .
ME: When did you apologize for sending me that message?
MOM:You told me to stop so I am going to. I don't want you to block me or anything of that nature.
ME: Please answer my question.
When did you apologize to me for sending me the following message?
Feb 22nd, 2023 at 7:28 AM ' No worries, won't be bothering anymore. Enough take care don't text or call you won't get a response. You have made yourself clean when it comes to me.'
MOM:Am going to stop as you ask me to. I hope we can find our way to one another. Love you mom
ME: On Thu, Mar 9, 2023
When I asked you to stop, you refused to by continuing to message me.
Now, I am asking you to answer the question. You are refusing to answer it because we both know that you never apologized for sending me that message. Your emails to me today are the only contact we have had since you sent it.
Do not contact me again until you are ready to properly apologize for that message. If you contact me for any other reason, I will block you immediately without responding.
I deserve to be treated with respect.
Thanks a bunch,
Thu, Mar 9, 2023 at 6:37 PM
MOM:If your answer to everything with me is blocking me, do what you have to do. I am standing up for myself and your stand to block me? Then just do what you feel is right and if blocking me is then do it. I am here when we can talk without the, ‘I am going to block you’ attitude. Love mom
ME: Fri, Mar 10, 2023, 8:36 AM
Dear Mom,
It breaks my heart to have to write this letter to you, but I feel that you have given me no other choice. For as long as I can remember, our relationship has been strained and difficult, but it has been particularly bad in the past few months.
It hurts me deeply that we haven't had a single pleasant interaction since November 2022. It hurts me that you refused to speak to me over Christmas and New Year's, and that you have ignored and not returned my calls for months on end. It hurts me that every time we do interact, it is filled with hostility, anger, and resentment.
I know that I am not blameless in our relationship, but I have tried so hard to make things work between us. I have tried to clearly communicate my needs and boundaries to you, but you have not respected them. I have tried to reach out to you and make amends, but you have not taken those opportunities. Even yesterday, I clearly asked you not to contact me unless it was to apologize for the message you sent me on 'Feb 22nd, 2023 at 7:28 AM, when you said, and I am quoting you directly: ' No worries, won't be bothering anymore. Enough take care don't text or call you won't get a response. You have made yourself clean when it comes to me.' Instead of apologizing to me as I clearly asked you to, you continued to email me only to argue with me and blame me for the state of things between us.
Your consistent behavior towards me over time has been hurtful and disrespectful, and it has taken a toll on my mental health and well-being. I had been recording our phone conversations because I needed to protect myself and my mental health because of your dishonesty and gaslighting. I never intended to hurt you or betray your trust, but I needed to do what was best for me.
I am devastated that our relationship has come to this. I am devastated that we cannot find a way to have a healthy and positive relationship. I am devastated that I have to write this letter to tell you that I cannot have you in my life anymore.
I want you to know that I love you and that I will always cherish the good memories we have shared. I will try to remember you at your best. But I cannot continue to subject myself to the pain and hurt that our interactions bring me. I need to put myself first and surround myself with people who love and support me. Unfortunately you have not treated me lovingly nor supportively for years.
I don't believe at this point that you will change but I still hope that this estrangement will give you the chance to reflect on your behavior and take steps towards becoming a better version of yourself. If you do that work on yourself, maybe someday we can reconcile and heal the wounds that have been inflicted on our relationship. But for now, I need to say goodbye. I wish you all the best, and I hope that you can find happiness and peace.

Good morning Daughter I am sorry for my message sent on 2/28. I was reacting basically on someone else's action to me which was wrong of me. Am sorry for that. I love you mom

Am at work and received your email. You can blame all that has gone wrong with our relationship on me . It hurts more than I can say to know my daughter doesn't want me in her life. Am praying for my mom being very ill at this time and now I lose you. Take care and I love you so much . Mom

Am giving your words back to you. I did apologize and you still made the choice to let me not be in your life, I am hurt but will honor your choice. I will love you always. I did the right thing and apologized to you. In time I will make peace with what is to be in time. Mom
So, if anyone has read this whole thing, what do you think? Should I stay no contact? Do you think this could be salvaged? I feel really guilty, like I should reach out to her again. What do you think I should do?

2023.03.25 02:08 bsutto Right tool for cutting long strips of metal bar

I'm trying to fabricate a steel handrail.
The handrail needs to be 127mm x 1800 x 5mm.
I have four of these to fabricate.
I can buy flat steel that is 150mm wide, so I would need to cut down the width.
I'm looking to find the best way to cut the steel to width.
I've come up with two options so far:
  1. scribe the length of the steel and use an angle grinder to reduce the bar width by 23mm.
  2. purchase a steel bandsaw to resaw the length of the steel.
I'm looking for other options and/or opinions on how likely I am to be successful (at getting a straight edge) with either 1 or 2.
I own an angle grinder and have found a bandsaw for around $500 which I'm prepared to spend.
I'm in Australia.
Follow up question.
Can you use a wood bandsaw to resaw mild steel?

2023.03.25 02:08 Deppressed_Blueberry How do I deal with young children?

So, my family just lost someone very close, and the funeral is out of province. Only my dad could attend, so I’m staying home taking care of my brothers (twins, ages 6 and autistic) as well as my mother (bed ridden with cushings disease). I’m really trying my best, because I just need to get my dad to be able to attend the funeral and be there for the family, minimal stress. The problem is mainly with the twins. They won’t listen to any reason, they bite, kick scratch, pinch, punch, scream at me and pull my hair. It hurts a lot so instinctively I will shove them away or yell, which can cause them to fall backwards and scream. Them screaming triggers my mother who will scream at me for hurting her golden children. I just can’t take it. I’m constantly in tears, pain or busy tuning around so that I can’t do the cooking and cleaning. I just need to make it for one more weekend and my dad will come back. Does anyone know how I can subdue them, get them to stop hurting me and to get them to calm down? Sorry for the mini rant.

2023.03.25 02:08 Sesti-nator CONGLATURATIONS ALABAMA!

And I thought both Virginia AND Purdue’s elimination was embarrassing. Hell, Alabama’s season was prime succubus disguised as a fairy tale. Dominated all season long, they won the SEC tournament, stayed in the AP Top 5 for the majority of the season AND crowned #1 overall seed in the tournament (it should have been Houston IMHO but who knows) only to be masked by one the players doing something so stupid that he should have been suspended (or even kicked out) only for the head coach to let him stay on the team. “Wrong place at the wrong time”? No wonder Nick Saban was ready to rip Nate Oats’ head off with his bare hands.
But this? This was karma. San Diego State may not be a walk in the park but they sure as hell exploited the f#ck out of Bama. Out of all the #1 seeded team in the tournament, this one was the most sus out of the whole pack of sus. Miller, the dude that faced scrutiny due to his stupidity, 8-41 from the field and 3-18 from 3. Oh you were in the wrong place at the wrong time… to get your #sses eliminated by a f#cking Mountain West Conference team. Now go back to football and BBQ!!!

2023.03.25 02:08 liamisabossss Better chance at landing job by learning ruby&rails?

I'm self taught ~ 1 year and have been doing everything In JS/TS, react/next and realize how hard it is for me to find a job given I don't have a cs degree. I've seen a few instances of people saying that there are still a lot of ruby jobs and a lot of people pass it up because it's not the shiny new thing anymore, but I'm just trying to give myself the best chance of getting a job and don't really care what I'm working with. Would it make sense for me to commit to learning ruby and rails if this is my goal?
I realize at the end of the day being the best developer I can be regardless of language or framework is what will give me the best chance at a job, but if there is a significant inherent increase given demand vs supply of ruby developers I will take that opportunity.
