2023.06.09 17:45 b1gl0s3r What if Majors gave more points? A revised DPC standings.

An often debated topic here is that regional DPCs give too many points compared to the Majors. So I did a quick experiment on it. I kept the points earned from regional DPCs the same but substantially increased points from the Major. Here's the new breakdown for each Major:
Lima: 1. 600 2. 550 3. 500 4. 450 5/6. 400 7/8. 300 9/12. 100 Berlin: 1. 700 2. 650 3. 600 4. 550 5/6. 500 7/8. 400 9/12. 200
Lima goes from a combined 1,900 points to 3,900. Berlin goes from 2,700 to 5,100. DPC points are also now awarded to all teams that make it to the playoffs. To compare this to the regional leagues... For Div 1, the leagues give 4,140 and 5,520 total points from S1 and S2, respectively.
Why these new numbers? Because it keeps the difference the same (50 points decrease with each placement decrease) as the current DPC. That seemed intuitive but it could be wrong. Regardless, it's good enough for this experiment.
I'm not going to show all of the numbers because that'd take a lot of typing so I'll just show the revised standings here. I DID NOT take into account deductions due to roster changes because that's a lot of extra math. So some numbers are slightly incorrect.
"Revised" Standings after S3 DPC: Points - Team 2,000 - Liquid 1,940 - GG 1,870 - EG 1,570 - Shopify 1,520 - Talon 1,460 - Tundra 1,420 - 9Pandas 1,420 - Spirit 1,340 - LGD 1,160 - Aster 1,100 - BC 900 - TSM 760 - Betboom 740 - Execration 660 - OG 580 - Nouns 580 - XG 500 - Bleed 460 - IG 460 - Entity 400 - Blacklist 240 - Quest 100- Azure Ray
This leaves TSM as the current 12th and final team to be currently qualified. If the same changes were made to Bali, that'd put Talon as the last team currently locked to TI and Azure as still being mathematically viable to qualify since 1st place would be worth 800 points.
It's possible I messed up on my math someplace but the changes should be relatively minor if I did. Regardless, this was a lot of fun to ponder on and put together.

2023.06.09 17:45 CouchTo5k First time traveling since stopping drinking.

Usually I would hit the bar when I got to the hotel. And sure enough when we pulled up the hotel bar was live with people and music. Instead, my wife and I went to the room and cleaned up and relaxed. We set an alarm and woke up early and worked out at the hotel gym. We grabbed a great coffee and breakfast from a place down the street. For the first time ever I hit the breakfast and gym rather than the night life and booze. I feel great, and got to experience a new aspect of a new city. Today I will drink coffee with you.

2023.06.09 17:45 Inquisitive-Carrot Trying to hang a light fixture but the house is fighting back

I recently purchased a house that was built in 2010, and still has most of the builder grade finishes in it. As a product of 2010, this includes a lot of the fixtures commonly referred to as "boob lights;" the round ones with the glass shades held on with a, um, screw in the middle.
My quest to eradicate the titillating luminaries started in the basement, where the removal of the old one went fine, but the replacement fixture is a long rectangle instead of circular. I would guess the new light is about the same weight as the old light, but the weight is not as evenly distributed, so it causes the existing electrical box (secured on a joist to one side) to droop and the light to be lopsided. Plus, it doesn't make me feel confident that it's not going to drop out of the ceiling on me.
"No problem," I thought; "I'll just install a fan brace!" Been there, done that before and it was no big deal. Went out, got the fan brace and discovered that the existing electrical box is 3.5 inches in diameter (which I didn't know was a thing) and the box on the fan brace is 4 inches. So that doesn't fit.
I'm kind of stumped. For various reasons I'm really trying to avoid cutting into the ceiling. Is it possible to get a fan brace with a 3.5 inch box on it? The light fixture isn't super heavy (maybe 15 lbs max), so it's not like I need one of these things that can hold a 70 lb fan. Is there another option?
Also, I do have a spot upstairs where I do want a fan that will probably run into the same issue. Any input there?

2023.06.09 17:45 NewNameNa0mi Watching Alone

I’m sitting here watching the last season of Alone on Hulu this morning. It’s reminding me of when I first found the show, when I was still with my n-ex. I am deathly afraid of spiders, I have pale skin and have gone to great lengths to avoid sun damage, I can not even bring myself to imagine killing an animal let alone figuring out how to skin it, prepare it and eat it, and dirt under my nails makes me instantly feel uncomfortable in my skin until I can clean up. I’m not a wuss but survivalist skills are far from my forte.
When I first found this show I became ridiculously obsessed. I found myself, the complete antithesis of survivalism, jealous of the people on the show. I honestly considered learning extreme survivalist skills just so I could be alone. I see now how I was already in survival mode and that, that show came off as a better option than the life I was living.
As I sit here today watching Alone again, I have ZERO interest in doing what they do because I really do love my life. I am 1 year absolutely no contact whatsoever with my ex and really getting to see what a lovely life I have ♥️

2023.06.09 17:43 Neither_Reindeer_812 LargeChickenTalon Checking In: Thank You

Swoldiers and Valkyries,
Over the years, I've lurked this subreddit under different accounts, practically since its inception. On February 24, 2023, I started a journey to get back in shape and found my way back to this community, sharing some facets of my path with posts such as this one, this one, this shitpost, and this other shitpost, under my LargeChickenTalon account. I became very active here with posts and comments. I've had a great time shooting the shit with y'all and lending support.
I've also been a longtime user of the Apollo third party Reddit app. Many of you are aware of all the commotion around the new API pricing model that has forced third party apps like Apollo to shut down on June 30. As a result, I decided to delete my main account, and come June 30, I'll be deleting this one as it seems hopeless that Reddit will backtrack on their decision.
This community played a large part in my continuing transformation. On Day 1, standing at 5'8", I weighed in at 175 lbs after 20 years of sitting on my skinny-fat ass and eating like shit. I was barely able to bench 80 lbs, barely able to do even 3 reps of reverse lunges holding 10 lb dumbbells. I almost passed out during my first workout not knowing what the fuck I was doing. I couldn't finish it.
As of this post, it's Day 105, weighing in at 165 lbs, working out 3-4 times a week, benching 3 x 6 at 120, squatting 4 x 6 at 135, and getting stronger every day. My mental health has vastly improved. I found my self-worth. I'm standing up for myself. I gained the confidence to wear better-fitting clothes that highlights my developing physique. I love myself and feel good about myself.
All this to say: THANK YOU, from the bottom of my swole heart. This forum has helped me more than y'all may ever realize. I wish all of you the best of luck in your own journeys to swole bodies, minds, and hearts. May the All-spotter continue to bless each and every one of you with glorious gains and impeccable form.

2023.06.09 17:41 Seeyouon_otherside The Isolationists - Chapter 34: Spark of Rebellion

Memory Transcription Subject: Bosjin, Zeyzell Planetary Defense Corps
I lined up the xeno in my scope as I laid on a nearby snowdrift, waiting for it to move away from the group of civilians it and its allies had captured. The things had arrived in this town an hour ago were injecting them with what I assumed was their so-called “Cure.” I growled when a crying kit was ripped away from their parent and stuck with a syringe. The parent yowled in fury and leaped at the xeno, trying to clamber up its larger frame and clawing at its eyes. The Kolshian slammed the parent into a wall before raising its weapon.
May Maa scorch whatever twisted essence substitutes for your soul.
I squeezed the trigger, sending a single bullet into its brain. The other xenos whirled their guns around, looking for the sniper. I adjusted my aim and iced what looked like the leader. Xeno blood began to stain the snowy ground. Bullets rained down on my general position, forcing me to back away and crawl to a new vantage point. The filthy things had murdered my entire squad and dispersed their cure over entire cities. I’d been able to scrounge up an old gas mask from a now-destroyed armory, meaning that the things would either have to take the time to capture and inject a single soldier or, more likely, just kill me.
I circled around the group of xenos, using my pure white fur to camouflage myself. I was a phantom, striking quickly before retreating back into the snow. The snow and ice were our turf. We’d evolved to use it to our advantage. The xenos would have to pay dearly for every scrap they took from us. Reaching another secure position, I iced another two xenos before instantly darting away before they could react. That wide vision of theirs did absolutely nothing against a ghost of the snow.
“Predator!” I heard one of them call. “Stand down!”
I ignored it, scrambling a nearby frost-tree, taking care not to rustle the sparkling and brittle leaves. I raised the scope to my eye once more before I paused. One of the xenos was holding a rifle to the back of the kit’s head. Other xenos were doing the same to other civilians.
“Predator!” it called again. “Surrender or we will begin executing your people!”
The wind began to pick up, kicking up snow, making it harder for them to see. It would also distort the direction of my voice.
“You’re going to do it anyway, xeno!” I retorted, clambering down the tree and circling the group once more. Just because it was harder for them to pinpoint me, didn’t mean I was safe.
“You would take that chance, predator-”
The wind began howling, drowning out anything else it was saying. Flurries of snow began to batter the area. I chuckled. Snowstorms this strong were dangerous even to us. These furless xenos wouldn’t last ten minutes. I slung my rifle behind me and unsheathed my knife, edging closer to their position. Some infrared goggles would be handy right now, but I still had the advantage. My eyes, evolved to handle the icy debris, could see better than the unprepared things. I had heard that the Federation used climate-altering technology to suit their exact needs on every planet. The Unity also did such things on occasion, but only on planets without life. Pydoria Rusarth’s climate was more or less the same as it had ever been, ignoring the effects of (mostly) eco-friendly colonization.
The relative unpredictability of this planet’s weather patterns had thrown the things off guard. I paused when the first xeno silhouette came into view. It was raking its gun all around it in a paranoid manner. I snuck up behind it, taking care to stay in its blind spot and freezing whenever its gaze fell on my location. It was a bit undignifying to be crawling along my stomach like this, but the giddiness of being able to ice my home’s invaders made up for it.
I was right next to it. I raised my blade and slashed it across the back of the creature’s knees. It fell with a yelp that was quickly silenced with a cut throat. Leaving it to bleed out, I moved on until I caught sight of a few prisoners with a pair of xeno guards. The wind was screaming now, as if the planet itself was howling its pain and fury at those who dared attack it. I raised my rifle and fired, the gunshot muffled by the wind. One xeno went down and the other was too busy shielding itself against the unforgiving cold to notice.
The prisoners took notice of the fallen xeno and some of them took the opportunity to bolt away. The others turned to the still-living xeno and unsheathed their claws. A single Zeyzell against one of them wasn’t a fair fight. Half-a-dozen on the other hand? I relished the screams of the thing as seven furious citizens piled onto it, raking their claws across its eyes and extremities. This was the fate that all xenos deser-
Something’s behind me.
I whirled around when a patch of snow crunched only to take the butt of a giant gun to the snout. A cruel-looking Kolshian sneered down at me as it shivered from the cold.
“Not so dangerous now, are you, predator?” it mocked.
Its tentacle tightened on the trigger. I closed my eyes, resigning myself to my fate. I flinched when a gunshot rang and…
I opened my eyes. The xeno was looking at a hole in its chest in surprise. It tried to stumble away only for a second shot to rip through its skull. It fell down and I looked behind where it was to see the shape of a Zeyzell. It was taller and it wore some kind of battle armor that I’d only ever seen on… Deathwatch Guards. We were saved! Loud gunshots rang through the area as more of my saviors entered the fray.
I scrambled to my feet and stared at the Guard, my face reflected in its orange visor. They nodded at me before rushing back into the fight and I immediately tailed them. My mood fell a bit when I thought about why they were here. Usually, they stuck around people of high importance, such as politicians. If they were here, then their charges must’ve been killed. I shook my head. That didn’t matter. What mattered was winning this fight. And the next and the next until reinforcements arrived or we fell in battle.
I stared in awe as the Guard expertly dispatched three xenos before they knew what was happening. More Guards appeared, gunning down those who were trying to flee. Normal soldiers rushed to free the prisoners while the Guards worked. A bullet struck one Guard in the shoulder, sending them sprawling before it leapt back up and riddled its attacker with holes, their armor having saved it from anything worse than a bad bruise. Compared to us, these troops were practically demigods.
Memory Transcription Subject: High Captain Bolhur, Zeyzell Fleet Command
I mused on Edo’s panicked orders to me as we hurtled towards Pydoria Rusarth. The Overseer had redirected the defense fleet to relieve Vajo’s dwindling forces and the xenos had pounced on the chance to attack. The redirected fleet was also on the way, hauling a Shield-class in tow which, combined with the identical ship I was currently standing on, and the thousand ships in both fleets would obliterate the invaders. I allowed myself a small chuckle.
Before the Kolshians stepped in, entire fleets scattered at the sight of these gargantuan warships. They each needed a trio of gigantic reactors in order to power its hundred railguns, nigh-unbreakable shields, and atmosphere scorching engines. The Kolshians might be brave enough to take one of them on, but a pair? Even the Arxur would fall before such power. I did wonder why we didn’t deploy all fifteen of them on the front lines however. With one or two at every major battle, the war would be going better for us.
“We’re nearly there, sir,” my navigator informed me.
“Charge railguns and bring us as close as possible,” I ordered.
I expected to see Pydoria Rusarth in the middle of burning, with every settlement wiped off of the map. Instead, I got the opposite. I gasped at the sheer size of the xeno fleet, much larger than the two thousand we were promised. And under the giant fleet was Pydoria Rusarth, completely untouched, at least from my perspective. Scans showed that not one antimatter bomb had been detonated on the surface. The xenos were occupying it!
I shook off my surprise. The second attack fleet would be here any moment and we needed to help clear a way for them.
“Open fire!” I shouted.
The xenos were caught off guard by our sudden arrival and couldn’t react in time to save themselves from thousands of simultaneous railgun strikes from my wall of ships. My flagship, the Vanguard, immediately followed up with a wave of plasma and kinetics, striking down hundreds more. The xenos adapted quickly however and regrouped closer to the planet, taking out a few of my own fleet. Most of their retaliatory strikes were directed at my own ship. Thankfully the Vanguard’s shields held up and we pressed the attack long enough for High Captain Treuts and the Annihilator to join the fight.
I could practically sense the xenos’ faltering morale as the two fleet-killing dreadnaughts bore down on them. They heavily outnumbered us, but we were the ones with the firepower. I contacted the fleet.
“Treuts, help me punch a hole in this location,” I said, marking the densest concentration of enemy warships in order to cause maximum damage to their fleet. “I want the rest of the fleet to surround the colony and squeeze the xeno formations. The moment we get through, deploy dropships to retake the planet.”
The fleet obeyed, spreading out across the planet, forcing the xenos to thin their own formation to counter, leaving the Vanguard and the Annihilator to fire upon a weaker defensive position. Two hundred railguns fired in tandem, obliterating a slew of xenos and we immediately followed up with a storm of plasma, missiles, and kinetics. Once again, I wondered why we didn’t use these mountains of steel more often. This was among the largest fleet of xenos we’d faced since the Battle of Earth, and only two being utilized to their fullest capacity was slowly but surely pushing the xenos back. I was sure we could spare a few from some of the Core Worlds.
The xenos launched a slew of missiles, most of which were shot down before they could reach us. Those that survived detonated a little way away from our ships. Readings showed a massive spike in electromagnetic radiation. They tried to EMP us.
“Any damage?” I asked.
“Shields took a small hit, sir, but are otherwise fine,” my sensors officer responded. “The hardenings worked. EMPs are mostly ineffective.”
“Sir!” my comms officer called. “The xenos are hailing us!”
“Amusing,” I chuckled. “They wish to beg? Too bad. Ignore it. They should have thought about dying before they came here.”
The xenos’ cries for mercy went unheeded as we pushed deeper into their formation.
Memory Transcription Subject: Captain Vajartav, Kolshian Commonwealth Fleet Command
Our ultimatum went unheeded as the predators pushed deeper into our formation. As a member of the higher caste, I was given the privilege of not being as easy to spook as the lesser members of the Federation. And yet the sight of the twin giant warships bearing down on us without mercy filled me with terror. They had a seemingly infinite supply of weapons and breaking their shields might as well be the same as trying to batter down a brick wall with our bare tentacles.
“Fine,” I said, hiding my fear. “If they don’t want to listen, then we will just show them. Begin bombardment, two low-population cities.”
“But sir, our forces are still down there!”
“A necessary sacrifice. Do as I say.”
Two bombers broke away and burned towards their targets. Hopefully, this would buy us time for reinforcements to arrive. They should be here any second, but time was a precious commodity at the moment. The predators took notice of the bombers and fired some of their railguns. By some miracle, the bombers were able to swerve out of the way. Well, one of them. The other took a glancing blow and began to flounder in the planet’s gravitational field.
That was fine. A single destroyed city would give the same message.
I looked up from the feed of the ships and gasped at the sight of another storm of missiles hurtling towards the center of our formation. Towards me. Then the projectiles detonated. An instant later, the ship went dark and the engines stopped rumbling. We were dead in space. About to be literally. The vicious predators started systematically destroying every defenseless ship in their path. They would lose a city, but now we couldn’t send anymore bombers.
Where are those damn reinforcements?!
“Sir! Look!”
The navigator pointed out the viewport and I felt immense relief flow through me. It was a staggering sight, 20,000 warships here to sweep away the disgusting creatures that called themselves sapient. The gargantuan attackers instantly turned and opened fire with all of their railguns, hitting every target. It didn’t even make a dent. The predators realized they were outmatched and burned away from the colony, recalling their fleet as well. Our trap worked. Barely.
Our reinforcements began to envelop the predator fleet. As powerful as those fleet-killers were, they stood no chance against a fleet this size. Today was truly the beginning of the end of the Unity.
Memory Transcription Subject: High Captain Bolhur, Zeyzell Fleet Command
“Shields are down to 50%!”
“The Annihilator’s shields are almost gone!”
“They’re blocking us from entering subspace!”
Panic and chaos bombarded my eyes and ears as the xeno reinforcements swallowed our fleet. Me and the Annihilator were barely holding them off and that wasn’t going to last for long.
“I want sublight engines and shields at full power! Carriers, create a protective barrier around yourselves and the flagships!”
At most, that bought us a few more minutes of survival before we were claimed by the vacuum of space.
Pydoria Rusarth was lost.
Memory Transcription Subject: Admiral Ferlinn, Zeyzell Insurgency Command
“Exiting subspace now, Admiral!”
Zeyzell-10 blinked into view in all of its icy glory. The frozen planet orbited its tiny star in an irregular orbit, heating the planet enough for most of the equator’s ice to melt for a short time before swinging back into the frozen zone. That, combined with the high levels of volcanic activity under the frozen seas, was theorized to be how life took hold on a planet otherwise rather hostile to life as we know it. Some scientists even believed that life took hold multiple times before being wiped out by the unforgiving cold before it could evolve any further.
Life always seemed to find a way. Only now, Zeyzell-10 was about to see a tremendous loss of it. The fleet I’d taken to distract the Unity had no chance at taking the planet, but it was large enough to be considered a significant threat. With the Unity’s eyes on me and the fiasco at Pydoria Rusarth that Overseer Noctif was going to deal with, our primary fleet could snatch a few fringe worlds from Edo’s grasp. We would establish a foothold in the now mostly undefended Sectors Nine, Eight, and Seven on the opposite side of the border with the Federation and work inwards from there.
My orders were to make this battle as authentic as possible, up to landing troops if I could. It was unlikely I would even come close to doing so, given that I was now facing down untold thousands of warships and Weapons Platforms, three Shield-classes among them with only a couple thousand of my own ships. Not to mention those giant, hexagonal satellites hanging in low orbit. The giant contraptions were specifically placed to cause as little havoc to the ecosystem as possible while providing the maximum defense to Zeyzell-10. In the end, new weapons were impressive and all but the pinnacle of our quest to build up our defenses was this.
A global shield.
As with any impressive technology, it had its weaknesses and drawbacks. It could sustain heavy bombardment for a long while, but those satellites were vulnerable. If one went down, the entire area around it would go down as well, leaving a hole for invaders to pour through. I had my reservations about destroying even one of them in the unlikely event that I got the opportunity due to the cultural significance they possessed, but Edo’s reign would end in the destruction of our culture entirely if we didn’t put a stop to this.
“The fleet is hailing us, Admiral!”
“Accept it.”
The image of an angry officer appeared in front of me. I recognized her as High Admiral Jannob, the supreme commander of the entire Zeyzell Navy. Traditionally, High Admirals were always stationed in defense of Zeyzell-10, which is why Vajo, and before him Krobag, were put in charge of the war against the Federation. Although they called the shots, Jannob had the last say.
“What is the meaning of this?!” she snarled. “We were not expecting a fleet here! Identify yourselves or you will be fired upon!”
I answered calmly. A new idea came to mind. Perhaps I wouldn’t have to take on the entire fleet on my own.
“Hello, High Admiral.”
Surprise crossed her face.
“High Captain Ferlinn?”
Admiral Ferlinn, as per the orders of Overseer Noctif.”
“Overseer Noctif is dead, traitor! All because of the xenos! Xenos that you should be fighting instead of your own people!”
“On the contrary, Overseer Noctif is most certainly alive, if a little worse for wear. No thanks to Edo.”
“Excuse me?”
I glanced down as a message from Noctif reached me. She was engaging the Kolshians over Pydoria Rusarth. I ordered my comms officer to send videos of Noctif that had been taken after the assassination attempt. Jannob watched the files with growing joy.
“She’s alive! That’s wonder…ful…” she trailed off as she realized the implications of this.
“Edo was the one who destroyed the Council Chamber. He blamed it on the Federation and used the attack he orchestrated to seize power. Edo is the traitor, not me.”
Jannob fell silent as she pondered the new information.
“Who will you stand with, Jannob?” I asked. “The man who is dooming the Unity, or the woman who only wanted what was best?”
Her eyes flicked back up to me, the now-familiar spark of rebellion shining within them.
“I stand with Overseer Noctif.”
Memory Transcription Subject: Overseer Noctif, Zeyzell Insurgency Leader
The battered Shield-class was quickly being torn apart by the xenos. Every other ship in its fleet had been destroyed, including another Shield whose wreckage dominated the scanners. I observed the battle from the safety of the middle of my fleet. I was no military officer, but being here in person was important. High Captain Grencop was in charge of this battle, a battle that even I could see we had no hope of winning.
I contacted the dreadnought from my ship.
“Attention Unity dreadnought. This is Overseer Noctif. Hang in there, we are here to help.”
Grencop ordered the majority of his fleet to engage the Kolshians, drawing them away from the dying mountain of metal. The Shield gladly took the opportunity to punch its way through the Kolshians and reach our fleet.
“They’re hailing you, Overseer.”
“Let them talk.”
The High Captain of the Shield-class appeared, pink blood oozing through the fur on his head.
“Overseer Noctif?” he asked in wonder.
“Indeed, High Captain. It looked like you needed help.”
“H-How is this possible?”
“Not important right now, High Captain. Let’s get the hell out of here first.”
He rubbed his wound before flicking his tail in acknowledgment.
“Of course, Overseer Noctif. It’s good to have you back.”

Hey there, just a swede looking for a friend or more, I just want cuddles while I’m finding new shows and movies to watch.
I’m a 185cm tall swede who is left handed and have red hair, which makes me quite rare i think lol.
My usual ways to enjoy life is playing games, watching shows and movies, cooking food together with friends, being out in nature/exploring abandoned buildings and cool locations in general. And just cuddling forever if possible.
My dream would be to drive around the world with someone i connect with, seeing all the locations that is worth visiting, eating food at all the nice restaurants all over the world. Just exploring the world in a van with the ability to stop at locations we enjoy being in for awhile aswell.
Hit me up if you feel like we would enjoy chatting.

2023.06.09 17:40 twopunchboi 19 [M4F] Finland or Online/Anywhere - Will you be my special one

Hey to you reading this! I guess I should tell you a little bit about myself, so you can decide if I'm worth your time.
•I'm a 19(soon 20) year old finnish guy. What comes to looks I'm nothing special, 5'11, neither fat or slim, and I have long blondish hair. My life's pretty boring so I'd like to find someone to bring something new into it.
• I'm introverted and I guess a little shy 'til I get to know people
•I don't take myself seriously most of the time and like a good laugh.
•I play a lot of videogames and like watching anime(though it's been a while) or some tv shows. My favorite game I have ever played is Witcher 3, but I play a lot of Rainbow Six Siege. So I'd like someone to play games with
•I like hiking but don't really like going alone.
•Also I collect Lego and like to build Gundam modelkits
•My music taste is pretty allover the place but my most listened genre is country.
•I love animals and have a cat.
I don't really care if you're older or younger than me so come tell me about yourself if you think we could match. I've never really tried LDR so that would be something new which I'd be willing to try. Hope to hear from you!

2023.06.09 17:40 terry418 Flexible Structured Training?

My current training plan of "just ride" has me on a plateau and in all likelihood probably declining a bit. A bad showing at a race this past weekend cemented it (I wasn't exactly going all out as I had no chance of a competitive showing but even so expected to do better).
I do structured training in the winter and am not the biggest fan of it in general but when summer comes around and I'm outside I really want some flexibility in it. Having to do X workout on Monday might not work out with work meetings, family obligations, weather, etc. so I'd rather just take that as a rest day and ride Tuesday. Clearly that's not an issue now but with any training plan it does come up.
I see the below options here:
  1. Subscribe to something (which opens another conversation of which one) and do the outside workouts as close to "on schedule" as possible. I've been through a few and in my mind they all have some pros and cons. - Trainer Road: I really liked this and saw good gains even though I had COVID right in the middle of it. I just didn't like the lack of flexibility especially with off-plan rides but I know they have some more AI in the plans now as it's been a couple years since I've used it. - Join Cycling - This seems to be the ultimate in flexibility but I don't know if the workouts are the greatest. Love being able to setup weekly schedules instead of per training block though. -Fascat - I haven't used this but it seems with their new optimized plan it is similar to Join but maybe the workouts are better? Is pretty pricey though. -Systm - Sufferfest was my first structured training program and I liked it. I used Systm a bit and it was okay as well however I think they're lacking in the AI areas? I am not doing any ramp tests. :p -Others - I subscribe to Breakaway to keep track of PRs and training load and I know they have some fairly basic suggestions. I'm also sure I'm missing other options as well...including just creating my own...
  2. Continue to just ride and do it harder. I've gotten into the habit of pacing myself, especially in this area that is rather hilly. Unless I'm attempting to beat a PKOM on a segment I'm probably not going all out with the exception of the killer hills around here. It wouldn't be structured but instead of just getting over the hill I could do my best to go all out a few times on the rides.
  3. Say screw it and just ride. Always torn here. Part of me wants to get better. Part of me really just enjoys the alone time on the bike. Tell the competitive one to shut up and deal with poor showings at any actual races I find myself in. Pretty sure at this point in life I don't have the time or genetics to get to a podium anyways.
Thoughts? I know flexible and structured are close to opposites but I don't want to turn my riding into a chore....

2023.06.09 17:40 SuperRaccoon17 Need help: Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 & Expanding Desktop in Windows 11

Greetings Reddit faithful!
I recently built a new machine (after 13 years). Used to have an RTX 660 with four monitors. In the configuration below:
1 2
3 4
I had it running as one big desktop with the Win 7 start button, quick launch and clock all across the bottom. I'm now on Windows 11. I've been reloading software and configuring/personalizing what's where and the look, much like my previous one. HOLY F. I cannot for the life of me, return my Windows display to that "one big ass desktop" across my four monitors.
It would make my day to accomplish this.
Also... has anyone changed machines and had to replace one Display Port to Display port cable with a Display Port to HDMI cable and have a monitor absolutely be unresponsive, no video? I've used a different DP to HDMI cable and changed ports in my RTX 3060 and nothing. It worked two days ago!
Thanks Reddit IT gang and users!

Some webtoons that have been on hiatus for a reallyyy long time
Some of my favorite webtoons that have been on hiatus for more than a year:
  1. The Red King by Heylenne: The art style is amazing. The plot is creative refreshing. All characters are HOT. I counted everyday till Thursday to read the new chapters.
  2. Lalin's Curse by Isakytm: One of my very first webtoons. The art style is really cute! Lovely colors. Supernatural!
When authors don't say a word and disappear, I'm worried more about their health and life than not having anything to read. Wherever you are, I hope you guys the best of luck. Please take care of your health!
I'm not gonna spoil anything. Just dropping these photos here so that you can't help but FLOCK to read these.

2023.06.09 17:38 kaydld Discouragement

Hi, so I noticed a nail fungus on my toe last summer during pregnancy. To be honest, I probably reacted too soon and cut my nail short and tried to get up under it to get the fungus out. I don’t know why. I was just tempted to do so. I’ve had a fungus in the past while getting pedicures, 2-3x a week and the fungus grew right off without affecting new nail growth and it was fine. Now, this new fungus that I have had since last summer is about to take over my entire toenail. On top of that, it has spread to my ring finger.
Questions: 1. to avoid cross contamination, do you all have two sets of nail clippers, nail files, etc.? One set for fungal nails and one set for other nails. (I assume, my other nails are healthy, but who honestly knows. I cloroxed my clippers after using them on my big toe but it still spread to my ring finger.) 2. have you had better luck seeing a dermatologist or podiatrist? I seen a podiatrist and was prescribed an athletes foot cream! When it says first they’re on the tube this does not treat nail fungus. I got discouraged and stopped using it.
I’m not interest in taking oral medication. I’m breastfeeding, so after this journey ends, I may. But honestly, I’m in no rush to start the oral pills because this sounds like something I’ll be dealing with for the rest of my life anyways after looking on this page. I just need to figure out what I can do for cross contamination.

2023.06.09 17:38 throw__away59 What's wrong with me?

This is one of the days I seriously ask myself what's wrong with me. For a little background (26,F) : I've been socially awkward and anxious since I was a child. I've always been shy and I consider myself introverted. On top of that, I have some issues with vulnerability and fear of abdonment. My "social" life has never been easy, as you can guess.

In the recent years (3 years or so) I've made a lot of efforts to socialize, make friends. I've even become the president of a student association, I get to meet and socialize with new people almost everyday. I believe I'm well appreciated. I often get complimented that I'm a ray of sunshine, that I have a beautiful smile, that I'm a warm and welcoming person, very cultivated and smart, I know a lot of stuff about different countries, cultures, that I do a very good job, that I'm pretty etc... yet for some reasons I struggle so much to make actual friends. It kinda breaks my heart when I see people with whom I'd like to get close (acquaintances or casual friends) having plenty of plans with each other but if I don't invite or tag along I'm not necessarily invited. I can have super deep and meaningful conversations with people, some would even say they're impressed by my knowledge, thank me for the chat etc but get no messages or calls from them.

Unless everyone around me is a liar giving me false compliments and praises (unlikely) I guess I'm doing something wrong. I don't know what to do to get invited more. I guess ppl might think I'm too busy as I'm currently writing my masters degree thesis and I have a lot of responsbilities in the charity I volunteer in. Or I might be doing something utterly wrong without noticing. I'm thinking of just asking people if there is somethigng wrong with me? Or will it come off as super weird? I reallly don't know. Any advice would be appreciated.

TL,DR : People around me seem to appreciate me a lot but I don't get a lot of messages/calls from them to hang out or just to check how I'm doing. Wondering if I'm doing something wrong.

2023.06.09 17:37 Seahorse_12 I (M30) took part in a paid study at my local university that studied the affects of diets on abdominal weight gain. I’ve put on over 115 pounds in 1.5 years. I’m seeing my parents(M67, F61) & siblings for the 1st time this weekend and they have no idea I look like this now. How to handle the shock?

HERE are some pictures and videos taken by me or others over the course of the last year and a half. THIS is me this week at my current size (273 pounds) ahead of seeing my family this weekend.
My local university was conducting a medical study on the affects of different diets on weight gain. I signed up and was chosen and the potential money to be made was very appealing. The first two months of the study involved simply eating at a calorie surplus on a premade diet to see how it affected my body’s weight gain. After taking measurements after these initial two months, if my body’s measurements represented any kind of high percentile outlier, I would be selected to potentially continue for the entire 1.5 year study focused on a particular area of the body. Of all of the participants, my abdominal girth was at the highest percentile ratio of girth compared to weight/height, so they selected me to participate focusing on abdominal weight gain and to see how severe it could be.
They paid me about $3,000 a month and had all of my food paid for as I followed a specific premade diet plan that changed every 2 or 3 months to study the affects these specific diets had. Some were dairy heavy, carb heavy, specific types of meats only, mixing in alcohol consumption, specific supplements, etc. I’m incredibly busy in my life with work right now and having a free premade meal plan plus so much extra cash was too good to pass up. So I decided to continue for the entire 1.5 year study.
Fast forward to now, having finished the entire trial, I am starting to have some serious regrets. I’ve put on nearly 115 pounds since last January and I never expected the results to have me looking like this. Honestly, I think even the researchers themselves were really shocked by my result. My ratio of abdominal girth to height/weight is at the highest percentile of the study, their entire student body, and anyone who has participated in the study before. I gained most all of the weight in my torso, which they are severely attributing to genetics and simply the effectiveness of the tailored diets they had me following.
I obviously look ridiculous now. I haven’t even been able to keep up with buying a new professional wardrobe for work (as you can tell my the pictures and videos linked). I was gaining an average of 7 pounds a month, some months being just 3 pounds and some being an entire 15 pounds in a month. So many things are difficult… I break a sweat going up one flight of stairs, I can hardly put my shoes or socks on, fitting into restaurant booths is nearly impossible, getting in and out of my car or off the couch takes preparation. People stare at me in stores or on the street. I had a homeless guy ask me “Jesus Christ, what the fuck? Are you pregnant, dude?” once. My coworkers are polite but make comments here and there.
I haven’t seen my family since early in the study when the weight gain wasn’t very noticeable. I’m seeing them in this weekend for a reunion, and I cannot even imagine what they are going to say. I didn’t tell them I took part in this because I knew they wouldn’t approve, but now I wish I had because how am I going to prepare them or explain to them why I look like this now and how it happened so fast. They are all very fit and stay in good shape and even my siblings partners are all in good shape. I was always slim before this and they make comments if I ever even fluctuated a little bit in weight before. I’m worried to fit on the plane on the way there and having to travel. I’m so nervous to see them. And honestly would like any genuine opinions of whether or not I’m blowing this out of proportion or if they are genuinely going to be shocked. Maybe I can hide it better if I find the right clothing. What do you recommend I do? Tell them ahead of time? Be honest with how it happened? Just pretend everything is ok? Will they bring it up? Can I hide it somehow?
This is me going into work today, leaving midday to fly home. I probably will have to wear this or something similar. This is one of the biggest shirts I have, and it didn’t fit too poorly just a couple months ago. I did find a couple shirts that fit decently but I will be there for awhile and will have to opt to some of these. I feel ridiculous. Be honest - is this really as awful looking as I think it is? Like, if you were my brother or sister, what would you say?
TLDR: I’ve gained a ton of weight doing a medical study at a local university and my family has no idea I’ve participated nor that I look like this now. I’m seeing them this weekend and also going to a family reunion. How do you recommend I can best handle with the shock of looking like I do now? Should I tell them ahead of time and be honest, even if I think they will judge me for having taken part?

2023.06.09 17:37 Cute-Palpitation6616 Is it my fault for holding onto a past friendship?

So, here is some back round info about me and this girl, Lets call her Zoe. My name is Megan, So me and Zoe met when we were in year 8 and we became Best friends, We both gained stuff from each other and over time, our friendship grew to be the only reason we would show up to school. One day I got a call from Zoe saying she would be moving the school we both attended, I was sad, and worried where this would leave our friendship. She said no matter what we would stay friends, before blocking me a few weeks later. Zoe wasn't very liked, even among the ''nice people group'' And I never understood why, after a few texts and calls that would not send through, I gave up, and joined all the people saying she was a bad friend, I hated her guts, because she said we would always be friend, and I belived her, even though its not her fault I was gulible, I let my gaurd down around her and she knew all the right, and wrong, buttons to press to press to manipulate me, and she used this against me multiple times in our fights. Even though be both were never good friends for each other, she became my sister and I truly loved her (non romantic way). She was a liar, so was I, she was an attention seeker, so was I, she had family problems, so did I. I loved the way we could relate to each other in a way nobody else could. I was never all that innocent but I always tried to be a good friend, even though I failed terribly. And, so did she. So she moved schools, and i started gossiping about her, until we came back in contact, she was in a new school and told me all the drama, And i loved it that way, until again, she blocked me, it hurt but i moved on, or i thought i did, we got in contact earlier in 2023 AGAIN, before we had a quick catch up, and she blocked me, but not on my alt account, I always check up on her on my alt account, but it hurts to see her living the best time of her life with friends, and yeah, i moved schools and i have friends aswell, but i miss her so much, What should i do?
