Until now you weren't able to get audio in the SideQuest Stream feature, but as of three weeks ago the Quest 2 could finally do this due to the android 12 upgrade in v51 firmware, and that 3 weeks ago scrcpy released version 2 of their software which now supports audio out of the box on Android 11+! For anyone who streams or records long gameplay sessions this is an awesome update to get. No more need for audio cables, or bluetooth transmitters/receivers. Yay!

SideQuest In-VR: Custom Homes from inside VR is back!

As users started to get v51 on their devices we realized that some features broke on the SideQuest in-VR app. After we got over cursing Meta for breaking some stuff, we worked hard to get the app working at its best again. One of the biggest problems was that custom homes no longer worked when installed this way and could only be installed using the good old SideQuest desktop app. I'm happy to say that we have now fixed that issue and custom homes are now working again so feel free to dive into your favorite custom homes from inside the headset again. We also fixed a number of issues with the search an d filtering system that we also broken in the v51 update.

That's all for now! Thanks from the whole SideQuest team! ❤️

2023.06.01 07:22 MyPersonalThought Confused - hubby just wrecked his Xbox

I’ve been with my husband for 8 years, married for 4. I always felt like we got married too soon, solely because we only lived together for 6 months before he got a job overseas. But he really wanted to lock me down which is honestly, appreciated. He’s a good man.
That being said, things have just been weird for a minute. Since we got married we moved into our own home, and he’s still gone for months at a time. It freaks me out because when he’s home he doesn’t really initiate sex…meanwhile I’m like a Caesar’s pizza lol hot & ready to go.
Tonight we went out and got pretty buzzed at our favorite dive bar. He asked me if I wanted to do karaoke twice, and I was like sure lol. That meant going to a different bar down the street.
At the end of our night, I felt comfortable telling him how I’ve been feeling disconnected in our relationship. We were both drunk but honestly it felt safe to me. I told him that it hurts my feelings that he doesn’t touch me at the bar, or on the car ride home, and how when we’re at home he doesn’t even look at me when I walk in the room. He just stares at his phone or his video game on our TV.
Once we got home he asked me if I had anything good to say about him, ‘because it sure doesn’t seem like it’ 😔 - I said of course! I’m only saying these things because I love you!
He went inside, grabbed his XboX, and went outside and smashed it in front of our house….
I was and am still absolutely mortified. This just happened 45 minutes ago. I don’t understand.
My initial reaction is to leave tomorrow (it’s late here) for a day or 2. I’ve never done that before in our relationship but I also don’t want him to think it’s acceptable to break appliances on our front porch because he doesn’t like hearing my feelings.
I feel awful and advice would be great.

2023.06.01 07:04 ThePinesTree Help with EPSON TM-T88II Receipt Printer

Help with EPSON TM-T88II Receipt Printer
hey 691ers, recently got donated some legacy T88IIs, trying to get them up and running. drivers dont exist for windows 10 so i had to install an XP vm, and the drivers that do exist arent working all too properly. ive searched through a couple websites for installation instructions but ive been getting multiple conflicting and not working explanations. ive just now discovered that the printer does work to a limited fashion on XP's generic printer drivers, which is nice, but text so far is misaligned. the printer also has issues with fading text, something that i hope can be fixed through the interface or by replacing a part. ive studied these a little in the past and cant figure out if its a thermal or impact printer. depending on the type i MIGHT be able to order a replacement part for whatever is causing the fading, but printing issues is a different avenue, and anyone who has tried to configure a printer in the past knows this shit is NOT made to be easy. in case anyone is curious and for some ungodly reason wants to try to hook one of these up ive managed to figure out a method for installation as follows:
1.) connect the printer to XP.
2.) if the Found New Hardware Wizard doesnt automatically pop up, click the dialog box in the bottom right corner that pops up.
3.) select "install from a list or selected location" and click next.
4.) select "dont search, i will choose the driver" and click next.
5.) go down to the "Printer" hardware type and select it and click next.
6.) scroll down to the Generic manufacturer and select the Generic / Text Only printer, and click next.
7.) Click yes, completely disregarding the warning that pops up, and the wizard should finish.
The next steps are for changing your driver to the proper drivers installed from epson.
8.) in the start menu click Printers and Faxes
9.) right click the Generic / Text Only printer and click Properties
10.) Navigate to the Advanced tab and select the correct driver in the dropdown next to the "Driver:" text.
11.) Select the correct driver, which i assume to be TM-T88II(R) Receipt.
12.) Click Apply.
I was able to get the printer to function in both of these configurations, it wasnt until i tried to print a test page that the printer stopped working. If anyone has worked with these i would appreciate any help that could be offered
Additional: a restart made the printer function again, but i have no idea why it got stuck in the first place and if anyone has any ideas as to why it would be nice. I really just want a second look at this project. my hunch is either the cheap LPT to USB cable i got is shitting the bed somewhere or the printer processor is getting stuck trying to handle a character outside its ability to print.

2023.06.01 06:49 Robakix92x First story Written and was hoping for some feedback.

I'm in the first draft stage and am having some difficulty getting some beta readers so I'm hoping for some input on just the first chapter. I know there's a lot of editing I'm gonna have to do so be as brutal as you can/ want, just as long as it's helpful criticism towards developing my writing style.
Alice Eye
Chapter One- Alone In The Rain
"Don't get in the way of humanity's future!"
A clash of swords race across a barren wasteland–
"Please! Let me save you!"
–Where two women face each other one last time.
"I can't be saved anymore! This is the only way! I won't let you stop me!"
One who has suffered and wants to belong.
"And I won't let you destroy yourself!"
And the other, who wished to heal a friend in need.
"I'm already lost!"
Unable to move forward as the darkness grows–
"As long as I'm still me, I won't stop trying to save you!"
–Yet a brilliant light burned, ready to stand beside it. It all began–
Two Years Ago….
BOOM! Thunder roared across the land as the light casts its shadow over one city; a city where the word impossible doesn't exist.
"It's been eight years since that day. The day the world became trapped in this endless rain and the day where a chain of unexplained deaths took place in our once, beautiful city. The police have no leads, scientific groups haven't discovered the cause behind the storm, and now, conspiracy theories and myths are rising."
September 1992, the eighth year where the sun's rays no longer reached off the coast of England; the Royal Quartet City.
"While the citizens have gotten used to the downpour, stranger things have been happening lately within the Dream District. A woman in a black cloak has been seen in children's rooms at midnight. Teen girls have been murdered with no signs of struggles. And recently, more sightings of odd, unexplainable creatures have been seen randomly throughout the area. Lastly, several witnesses have claimed to have seen the sun near a high-rise building. This is Wild Heart News, reporting in…"
CLICK.
"That's enough of that. I better get going. Second period is almost over."
Highschool student, Iris Blackheart, is getting herself ready for another rainy day as she finishes her breakfast and daily news. She looked in her dresser for some clothing and grabbed whatever was left; she smelled the clothes she grabbed "Wow these smell bad. I need to get some more clothes."
As she got dressed, she looked around her room, piled up dirty dishes, worn clothing all over the floor, and garbage bags along a wall.
"..... I'll get to it eventually." She sarcastically claimed as she walked towards the front door. She grabbed a purple zipper hoodie, an umbrella, and a small, silver bracelet with a heart shaped diamond embedded in the center. As she placed it on her wrist, her eyes became entranced as she thought of the day she first acquired it.
I can't believe it's been eight years since I got this thing! It's funny. It was also the last day the sun was out.
Iris looked at the clock as its arms moved and questioned what she was even leaving for. She knew she had school, but no one was there to make her go or tell her why she should go; she just felt she had to go. Looking around her room once more, Iris saw all the things that needed to be done, and wasn't up for doing it. She slapped her cheeks, rolled her head and shoulders as she loosened up, and left her apartment to go to school. She opened her umbrella as she took in the sight; the Dream district, one of the city's four major boroughs.
"Hurry up or we'll be in even more trouble!"
Iris quickly turned her head over to the hasty voice; her heart raced with excitement as the voice called to her.
Is someone really calling me?
Her gaze shot over to two adults. One was in a car telling the other to get in as he struggled to close his umbrella. The two drove off once he closed it as Iris stood there watching.
I should have known better. She let out a long sigh as she shut her front door. Iris looked at her umbrella and just threw it away, choosing to let the rain wash away the emotions she felt as she dragged herself towards her school.
Why is it always like this…
She passed by other adults running late to work, traffic workers trying their best to work in the rain, police constantly on the move to give the city a sense of security, even elders sitting by watching the sky; not one person paid her any mind as she walked. She tilted her head towards the cloudy sky as the downpour continued and muttered–
"I really wish this rain– would just wash me away already."
This city, which has long been waiting for release from the storm, lies two girls bound by fate.
SLAM!
"What was that? Who's there!"
"It's probably the rumored ghost again!"
"I thought it was only in the bathrooms!"
"Wasn't it supposed to be shaking the hallways?!"
"Forget this! I'm getting out of here!"
Several students were on their way to their next class but ran the moment Iris opened the front door of the school building.
Sigh… There they go again.
A teacher tried to calm the students down as they ran, however Iris stood in front of him.
"How about you help the student in front of you asshole?" She demanded, staring into his eyes, hoping he would scold her.
Please…
"Seriously kids, knock it off, stop running, and head right to class before you all get detention!"
The teacher chased after the other students leaving Iris behind in a now empty hallway. She dropped her bag, took a deep breath and screamed–
"STOP TREATING ME LIKE I DON'T EXIST!"
She waited for a moment to see if anyone, be it a teacher, a student, or even an animal would approach her to say or do anything to her; anything to be noticed.
RING!
The late bell went off and no one approached her.
"Whatever." She took off her sweater and started squeezing the water out onto the floor. She looked at the clock on the wall, "It's only the fourth period. Think I'll use their showers and dry off."
Why did I show up again? It's not like I'm learning anything here. Iris entered one of the school's shower rooms and changed out of her wet clothes when something caught her attention from the window.
"Is… is that– light?"
Across from Iris's school on a tall building, a golden light emanated.
"Is the sun really shining again?"
As she reached her hand out towards the light, it vanished. Did I imagine that just now?
She took one more glance around the area, but found no such light again. Unable to assert whether or not what she saw was real or not, Iris continued getting undressed, entered the shower and leaned against the wall as each droplet of hot water loosened the stress on her body.
I should enjoy this for a bit before the other girls arrive.
After thirty minutes passed, the doors opened and other girls started walking in to change as the current class ended.
"Why is the shower water on?" And here we go again.
"Don't tell me the ghost is in here now too."
"Maybe it was just a fluke! Let's just quickly shower and get out."
"I agree."
Iris walked out as the girls walked in. She dried herself off and went towards the lockers and saw a black and gold v neck shirt, short black ripped pants, and mix matched socks.
"Can I switch clothes with one of you? Mine smells a bit and they're wet." The girls continued to shower without saying anything to her. "I'll take that as a yes."
A little tight around my chest, but it'll do. She got dressed in the other girl's clothing, placed her wet clothes in the locker, leaned on a wall, waiting for them to get out and see if they noticed her. Now let's see if anyone cares.
The shower water turned off and the girls hastily walked over to the lockers.
"Huh… where are my clothes? Whose are these for? Ugh, they reek!"
"That stupid ghost steals clothing now!"
"Nowhere is safe in the school!"
Ugh, drama queens. Iris rolled her eyes, grabbed her bag, and walked out of the shower room causing them further confusion.
How much longer do they plan to keep this bullying up? Iris thought as she picked up her bag and walked the hallways of her school. For as long as she could recall, everyone in the city has treated her like she doesn't exist; no one acknowledged her presence. She couldn't grasp why anyone would treat her like she wasn't there and continued to ponder this as she arrived at her class. Before she walked inside, she took a deep breath, slapped her cheeks, and prepared herself for the bullies of her classroom. She opened the door so fast that a gust of air passed through the classroom.
"Not again!"
"Why is our classroom haunted?!"
"Is this going to happen for the rest of the year?!"
Yeah, yeah, shut up. Iris ignored their panic, quietly walking over to her desk and sat there waiting patiently to leave. The students were alarmed and panicked as the teacher made an attempt to settle them down. It was difficult to calm any of the students down as there were reports of teenagers being murdered by some invisible force; superstitions were rising as the victims increased. The teacher advised everyone to speak to each other for the remainder of the class and help calm one another down as tensions rose. Iris watched the class comfort one another and felt her chest tightened as her frustration over being ignored grew.
"Would anyone even care if I stopped coming? Even the teachers don't seem to care about me." Iris muttered to herself as her only form of communication.
"Sigh… you know what. I don't even know why I show up?!" Iris got up, threw her chair on the floor spooking the class even further and walked out. "Stupid classmates! Stupid teachers! Stupid school!" She kicked lockers, and yelled outside the classes, but nothing.
"Ugh… What do I have to do to get some attention around here?!"
"Shut up you whiny bitch!"
Iris heard a voice and immediately looked around to see who it was. Everyone was in a classroom, so who was it? Who acknowledged her?
"Where did that voice come from? Did someone hear me just now?" She searched the school looking everywhere she could think of; the gym, the lunchroom, the teacher's lounge, anywhere she could think of.
"Where? Where? Where?! Where?! WHERE?!" Soon her curiosity turned into desperation as she ran throughout every corner of the school. She wasn't sure if she was just hearing things or not, but all she knew was that she was tired of being alone for so long.
Whoever that was they have to be here somewhere. I—
RING!
Unfortunately, the final bell for school rang and just about everyone was leaving to go home. Tired from running around the school, she stopped and sat down against the wall of the hallways to catch her breath before trying again.
"So what should we try at the Cafe this time?" Iris looked up to other students chatting thinking it was directed at her.
"There's a new item on the menu that I want to try that is apparently to die for!"
"Oh, what's it called I want to try……."
Iris faced the ground as she held herself, sitting in her isolation. No one to hang out with. No one to comfort her. No one to ask her if she's okay. She tried her hardest to keep tears from flowing out of her eyes as she struggled to keep herself from breaking down.
Why? Why won't anyone see me? Why won't– anyone acknowledge me?
BANG! One of the students suddenly fell onto the ground as she struggled for air causing the students to panic; however…
Are you serious?! Iris trembled as she wiped the tears from her eyes to see if she was seeing things; she wasn't. What is that?!
Over the student was a skinny humanoid creature that wore a tattered cloak and seemed to have multiple hands wrapped around parts of its body. It had one of its hands inside the girl's mouth as it attempted to pull something out of her.
What the hell is it doing?! And why is no one reacting to it? Her heart began to beat faster than her trembling as she looked on in horror. The class started screaming in fear as the student began to cough up blood.
I need to get out of here!
Iris felt her whole body become as light as a feather as she immediately stood up in an attempt to run; the creature instantly turned to her. Iris completely froze in both mind and body. She was so afraid that she even stopped breathing as if anything would set it off. The creature walked towards her pulling something out of the student causing her death. As the class yelled in fear and agony, Iris stood there unable to move as her skin froze up in the presence of the creature slowly approaching her. Something finally acknowledged her existence, and she was far too afraid to even think of why it was happening now.
"Found you!"
Iris and the creature turned towards the voice and saw an oddly dressed rabbit. The creature immediately fled from the rabbit giving Iris a chance to reclaim herself. She fell to the ground struggling to breathe as if someone was strangling her.
(HUFF, HUFF, HUFF!) What the hell was that?! And why is no one reacting to this?! As she's gasping for air, Iris sees the rabbit leave after the creature and tries to follow it. She got up and attempted to follow, however she caught a glimpse of the student dead on the floor with her eyes pointed at her as if she could see her.
Don't, don't look at me as if you could finally see me. A tear ran down Iris's face for her fallen classmate. Whether it was because she was sad that she was possibly acknowledged after someone died or if she wished it was her that died to escape her isolation, she didn't know. All she knew was that something was out there that only she could see and that meant there could be a way to make people see her again is what she thought no matter how unreasonable a thought it may be. She ran looking for the two creatures and heard a loud sound coming from the nearby restroom.
Okay. I'm close. Need to calm myself before I see, whatever that thing was.
Iris stopped moving, closed her eyes for a moment, placed her hand on her bracelet, and headed over to investigate. She stopped again.
This is stupid. No matter how I look at it, this is stupid. What am I hoping to find?
Iris stood for a moment, listening to nearby sirens approaching the school.
After what I saw, stopping now would be crazy right?
She carried on and reached the area where the sound was loudest; the boy's bathroom. Iris stood there for a moment, embarrassed by the idea of entering a room for the opposite gender.
Okay, so I might be curious, but not that curious. It's the boy's bathroom, what if one of them is peeing or…
BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
Multiple loud sounds came from the room again and again. Do I go in? Or do I turn around and pretend I saw nothing? Iris paced back and forth contemplating what choice to make.
"Screw it! If it were a boy in the same situation he'd go into the girl's bathroom without second guessing it! I'm doing this for gender equality!" She yelled, hardening her resolve as she nervously walked in and saw something unbelievable; a black hole lodged into the ground.
I… I must be dreaming. This can't be real. Can it?
Iris was unable to determine the thing in front of her. And yet, she felt drawn to it as if something called to her. Before she could even attempt to comprehend what was happening, she was already through the hole. She felt her body was changing, becoming, something… free. Free of all her worries. Free of isolation. Free of reality. Her vision went dark and then, like magic, she was standing somewhere far away from her school. In front of her were several abandoned, run-down apartment complexes ranging from roughly six to twelve stories tall floating on rocks and connected by train tracks.
This place looks like it's been abandoned for decades. Even the ground looks like it's been through an earthquake or two….. Somehow, this place seems familiar…
She looked at her hand and saw the rain water slip right through her as if she were a ghost.
So— this really doesn't help with my "I don't exist" anxiety. Where am I? Iris started walking towards the nearest apartment building when she suddenly heard a voice.
"How the fuck did this slut get here?!"
Iris was completely thrown off by the random words thrown in her direction and immediately sought the voice.
Where is that voice? I've heard that voice before. Iris looked and saw the oddly dressed rabbit from before. Iris grabbed the rabbit who didn't even bother to try to escape and immediately inspected it from head to toe.
"Is there like a radio or voice box attached to this thing?" She said curiously. Iris looked it in the eyes, "No way was this cute little thing the source of the voice! It's a bunny!"
SLAM!
Iris was flipped onto the ground with zero time to react. She was completely dumbfounded and tried to get the words to comprehend what happened until the rabbit got on top of her.
"Touch me like that again with your slutty hands and I will bury you like my liquor on a Saturday morning." The rabbit commanded.
Iris couldn't process or find logic in what was happening. Where was she? Why is there a talking rabbit? Why is it a bitch? Iris had too many questions on her mind.
CRACK!
Iris heard a building crack and quickly looked to see an abandoned apartment complex breaking down in front of her. She saw the cracks intensify and saw the creature from earlier get blown out of the building. She quickly moved away to avoid the creature.
"What is that thing?!" Iris asked, but the rabbit quickly ran towards the building as a person began to walk out of it. Golden light emanated from the building and only grew brighter.
What's happening?
Iris tried to look as best as she could until someone came into clear view. A petite, teen girl in a dark blue jacket with glowing golden long hair had Iris in awe of her unique appearance. She pulled out a red curved sword with a rose shaped handle on it and a clock embedded in the center of the rose.
"Abby– Clock in."
The rabbit was drawn into the clock as the needle turned and a strong golden light glowed from the sword. She took a stance, readying her blade, and prepared to battle the creature. It removed its cloak, unleashed its other four arms that were surrounding its body, and lounged at the girl. The girl is pushed back into the building as their battle carries through the floors. Iris could hear the sounds of their attacks rise slowly getting quieter as she thought of whether she should follow them or not.
"I don't know what's happening, but I can't sit here and wait to see what happens. I walked through the weird hole, I'm going to see this through to the end!"
Iris ran into the building, ran up the stairs, and looked for the girl and the creature. As she got closer to the top, she stopped hearing any sort of loud sounds.
Is it, is it over? Iris felt concerned now that she was at the door to the rooftop. Who won? The girl or the creature? If the creature won, Iris would be her next target. But if the girl won, what happens next?
I– I can't stand here and wait for something to happen.
She grabbed the door handle with hands drenched in sweat and uncontrollable shaking of fear from the unknown; whatever happens next, nothing would be the same for her.

2023.06.01 06:46 GummieAlien Update: My UI is still missing.

Someone told me to download assets, which I can't do because I don't have a menu, and someone else told me it was a GPS error. But it seems like nothing works.
So I kept Googling...and found out that this specific glitch can happen if you're using a Pokémon Trainer Club account...which I am. I can sign into that account just fine, either on my phone or my computer, and it lets me into the account...but I have absolutely no UI.
The UI was there and fine when I first started today, but I had closed the app and came back to add a Buddy Pokémon, only to find that I had absolutely no UI. It was just my Trainer in the void and the only semblance of a UI was the little spinning loading icon in the top left corner.
Right now, I have to actually delete and reinstall the app to even be able to get back to the login screen, because otherwise I have no way to access my settings. I don't really want to start over, even if I just started today...mainly because I just want to get to Lv20 to unlock Ultra Balls, catch a bunch of Gimmighoul, maybe mess around with sizes later if it suits me, and this seems...like a rather exasperating solution to do that...?
This is all I see. I'm stuck in Limbo and I want out.
Is there any way for me to salvage this or do I just have to suck it up and make another account?

2023.06.01 06:45 RetroDECK_Official RetroDECK - Status Update 2023-06

RetroDECK - Status Update 2023-06
Hello community!
We in the team thought we could give you a quick status update on how development is going.
Status update 2023-06:
With 0.7b and summer just around the corner we in the team thought this month we should focus more on a mix of topics.

Read First – Important Changes in 0.7b!


  • PCSX2-SA latest updates are not compatible with old save states. Please make sure you do an in-game save to your virtual memory card before upgrading.
  • The following emulators have changed as the defaults and now run the stand-alone version: Dolphin, Citra, PPSSPP.If you have saves states or just want to go back to the RetroArch versions, you can always switch back by pressing: Other Settings – Alternative Emulators in the main interface and set them there.
  • If you decide to install the new RetroDECK Controller Layout for the Steam Deck, it will wipe your custom configurations and emulator settings. That’s because all the configs need to be updated and changed to be compatible. The choice is yours (you can always install it later via the Configurator if you change your mind).

What are the upsides of RetroDECKs all-in-one approach?

Quite many actually!
  • RetroDECK is updated via standard secure update channels where you update all your other software (we will have an internal updater added in RetroDECK in 0.7b, so users don’t even need to go to the Discover app to update if they don’t want to).
  • It allows us to apply the RetroDECK Framework on the bundled software and apply custom made specific patches for emulators or ES-DE (more on that later).
  • We can optimize the data to take as little space as we possibly could. Our whole application in 0.7b is around 3GB. Since we are using a single package, we can avoid a lot (but not all) of the overlap that takes up space when installing multiple AppImages or Flatpacks.
  • We can expose various hidden/hard to find emulation features and allow the users to customize various experiences directly inside the application itself without needing to go into the Steam Deck’s desktop environment.
  • We are leveraging the power of compiling these emulators ourselves (where possible) to make a more complete unified experience a reality with custom patches.

What are the downsides of this approach?
  • You are bound to the software we ship inside our application and cannot add more things. But we are always open to suggestions on what to add next, just tell us on Github or Discord.
    • That said we are experimenting with allowing users to import certain emulators early access versions like Yuzu (but no solution in the short term).
  • Emulator updates need to be in point releases and not daily, since we can’t update emulators inside an existing flatpak. As we apply the RetroDECK Framework on top of the emulators, we sometimes need to do some tinkering before we can release a new version. But you can expect semi-frequent emulator-update point releases, historically we have been fast if we feel the need to get something out quickly. Major new updates that add features to the RetroDECK application itself will take more time.
    • There has been some issues with Yuzu in the past, but we have redone our entire Yuzu pipeline for 0.7b s it should allow for faster updates.

What is RetroDECK's vision and design philosophy?

  • Valve endorsed the use of flatpaks as their preferred and safe way to distribute software on SteamOS’s immutable system. Many other immutable systems like Fedora Silverblue/Kionite and standard Linux distributions have also endorsed flatpaks. We also share the vision that flatpaks are the future for the Linux desktop and Linux based devices.
  • Everything must be accessible from inside the application itself where possible. Once you launch RetroDECK, you should have all the tools you need to play games and configure the application. For the Steam Deck that means minimizing switching to desktop mode.
  • We need to build a foundation that pushes emulation forward and expose more of the niche hardcore features in an easier way.
  • We shall not be so bound by design choices that others have made but make our own path.
  • We should ship the emulators with optimized settings for Steam Deck (later other devices) but also allow the users full control to create their own configs and make it easy to do so.
  • We should do our best to respect user-made config changes where possible, even during the updates. Any forced changes should always be explained and give the users a prompt to accept them.
  • We believe in a transparent open community: Dialog , user feedback and testing development versions will never be locked behind paywalls or subscription tiers . This comes from deep rooted beliefs in open-source freedom. Subscriptions and donations will always only grant cosmetics like a unique discord color.
  • We want to make the emulation available for everyone; from the casual to the power user. Keep it simple, everything in one application and download it like any other software. Only one thing to update.
  • Prioritize security and keep everything contained as much as possible.

How does this vision effect design?
A good example is the new exposure of mods and texture_packs under the retrodeck folder.
Before it was quite hard for users to add mods and texture packs into the emulators. No work for any other solution (that we are aware off) has been done to make this very hardcore thing more easy to handle.
For the user it means no more looking into hidden folders of when and where to put the files. Our new approach also has received the blessing of famous texture packs and mod pack creators out there that were happy that someone lowered the barrier.
So if you found it hard before to add:
  • A magnificent texture pack for Citra
  • A spooky HD pack for the Mesen Core
  • New 3D polygon racing models for Mupen64Plus-Next Core
Just look our wiki under mods/texture packs and look forward to 0.7b.
https://github.com/XargonWan/RetroDECK/wiki

Another example is (as others have done) move gamelists to under the retrodeck folder. This is a safer way of doing it and it's easier for the users to take backups.

What to expect in the future?
You can expect most of the standard stuff like that you can except from an emulation solution in the future:

  • Cloud-sync
  • USB and FTP file transfer
  • External controller management
  • Lightgun support
  • Most of the supported ES-DE emulators
  • Automatic Updates from Gamemode on Launch (0.7b it can be disabled in the Configurator)
  • And more...

What is the RetroDECK Framework?

This is the feature we have been building on since the beginning and the true hidden core of RetroDECK that we are unveiling for the first time today. It’s the foundation we have built over many months of hard work and will keep expanding on in every upcoming update.
The RetroDECK framework is a complete system that applies and adds features, fixes, structure and functions to all applications/data shipped within RetroDECK.
This is also one of the reasons we needed to restructure save file folders in the past updates as well.

What does the RetroDECK Framework allow you to do?
It allows us to ship deeper choices, customization, apply settings globally, create custom patches or functions and expose hidden settings to the front.
But what truly excites us in the team is the more advanced big features that we have not seen anyone else do on SteamOS or other operative systems.

Some light examples in 0.7b of the framework is:
  • Move everything everywhere.
Note:
Please be careful when moving data to exotic locations don't be like Mr.Angry:

Thank you Mr.Angry for your input!

  • Log in/logout/hardcore mode for RetroAchivements hardcore mode for all supported emulators.
  • Apply Borders, Shaders and Widescreen mode per emulator / core or globally.

Note:
RetroDECK will offer full user choice and not a blanket all or nothing. You could have widescreen on one core while the others have borders.
What are some advanced big examples that you could do with the Framework?
Here is one example:

Think about configurations for emulators. How most other solutions are handling changes or updates is just a blanket call all-or-nothing. Either you accept the changes and remove everything you have done or keep your changes without getting the updates.
What we are building with the framework is a system to inject point changes into configurations.

So instead of doing the crude way others are doing:
Force replace in a crude way config.xml old with new config.xml yes or no?

What our goal is and what we are building:
Be able to open a config.xml inject the changed values across all those configs.
If an emulator updates and adds more config options, we can just add them without losing the rest of the user data.
So we can compare changes between the new config.xml and the old, then inject the changes.
But if a emulator totally change how their configuration works and makes a whole new system from scratch (it does not happen often or at all) even we will be out of luck.
So we hope in the future to be able to save even more custom configs even with the emulator updates. We also hope to make configuring emulators easier... more on that in a future development update after the summer.

Another big example:
If you read the recent article, we in the RetroDECK team are happy to unveil the RetroDECK: Multiuser Mode. This is only the first one of the big features we have planned for future updates and stands as an example of the complicated features we can accomplish. There is even more crazy stuff in development for the future big releases then this, so consider this a taste of things to come. It will not be ready for 0.7b but can be enabled with CLI commands for testing.

See the following Q&A:

RetroDECK: Multiuser Mode Q&A

First read here:
https://github.com/XargonWan/RetroDECK/wiki/How-can-I-help-with-testing%3F
This is for testing only in 0.7b!

What does Multiuser Mode mean?
It creates a new directory structure retrodeck/multi-user-data/ and allows multiple users to use RetroDECK from one device.

Wait... what.. how?! What about saves?! Configurations?! Custom settings?!
They are all saved per user if you enable it. You, your sister, brother, child, husband, wife, dog, cat could all have their separate saves, states and custom emulator settings just for themselves when they select their own profile.

Does it support the Steam Deck’s multiple users in Game Mode? Will RetroDECK hook those Steam Users into the enabled Multiuser system?
Yes, that is the intent and should work, so you can log into your Steam Deck profile and have your RetroDECK saves/configs.

What about a Linux Desktop PC that don't have Steam installed?
We also support locally created “RetroDECK Users” so, for those Linux Desktop users in the future that don’t use Steam and just want RetroDECK on their device.

What happens if I disable multiuser mode?
You chose one profile as the primary user and the other data still exists under retrodeck/multi-user-data/. No data is lost until you delete it manually.

What happens if I re-enable multiuser mode?
If you have had multiuser mode enabled and disable it, then re-enable it and have not deleted any retrodeck/multi-user-data/ everything should work as it did before.

Will there be an easy way transfeexport/import a user profile, like press a button and my can export to my profile (saves, configurations, with/without roms) to my friend's device on something like a USB or other media?
Not for 0.7b but hopefully for the next major update 0.8b.

Other things

What does Amazing Aozora mean?
Aozora is Japanese and means blue sky.
So, you could interpret the name as one team member:
“Amazing blue skies... The first update that shows the exiting new horizon and the path we are heading towards.”
Or as another:
“Aozora is just a tiny Japanese banks name! This is clearly just an update to pay some of our dept to the community off! Stop with that horizon nonsense mumbo jumbo!”

What are some examples I can help out with with?

Artist/Creators:
  • Create new pixel art for the Radial menus.
  • Create easter egg art for the new easter egg system for various holidays.
  • Create menu art for a new Configurator.
  • Create input art that can be shown when you start a game.
  • Create input art guides for the wiki for the Steam Deck and later various controllers.
  • Create patch note videos.
  • Create instruction videos.
  • Help us make RetroDECK better.

Developers:
  • Help us put in new features.
  • Help us make the configurator a godot application with full controller support.
  • Help us get releases out faster.
  • Help us make RetroDECK better.

Testers:
  • Help us test cooker builds and submit bugs and feedback.
  • Help us make RetroDECK better.

Everyone:
  • Be kind and follow the rules.
  • Spread the word of RetroDECK if you like it, if you don't like it or have suggestions put them on github into issues or discuss them on discord.
  • Engage with the rest of the community.
  • Help us make RetroDECK better.

Summer Period
As the summer period arrives there will be a holiday break on these kind of development posts until after the summer. Some parts of the team is also going on vacation, you can still except semi regular emulator updates and bug fixes as usual in 0.7.X releases (but no major 0.8b - Bonsai Banana version in the middle of the summer!).

End Quote
We hope you are excited about these features and our vision as we are and we want to get 0.7b out to you as quickly as possible (hopefully next week).
We also wish everyone a happy and good summer!

2023.06.01 06:34 arunasha 26 [M4F] Michigan/USA/Anywhere - Let's Chat and See Where It Leads

Hello Internet. I'm honestly not sure what exactly I'm looking for, I'm open to just about anything. Ideally we get to know each other before anything serious happens.
A little bit about me: Born in Michigan, have lived here basically my entire life. I want to move someday but I'm not entirely sure where I'd want to move to. I have an interest in travelling around the world and seeing different places. I'd love to tour Europe some day. Right now I'm finishing up a degree in Information Technology. I'm excited to be done with college, but not so excited to start paying my student loans. I love computers and video games and my ultimate goal is to become a software developer or work in cyber security. Lately I've been working on my fitness and health as I've gained more weight than I'm comfortable with during the past couple of years.
As for you, I don't have any major requirements for you other than to just be a cool human being.
I'd like it if you could send me a photo of yourself upon messaging me and I will reciprocate.
If you've made it this far, let me know your favorite pizza topping.

Hello.
Is there a way to bring back the old Recent Files folder behavior on the Win 11 Start Menu? I want it on a neat little list like in the older versions, without having to open the Recommended Page for it. I recently moved from Win 7 and can't seem to find the settings to do it.

2023.06.01 06:16 droidmasta420 F*** Cybersecurity and F*** the LIES, BIGOTRY, GATEKEEPING, AND STRAIGHT UP LYING MARKETING TO SELL CERTS. Who wants to file a class action lawsuit?

This question blew me away:
"If certifications are so valuable to employers, then why are they being primarily sold to individuals rather than companies LOOKING for employee's and trying to vet their talent?" i.e. as in the same test, but as screening for a job opportunity.
I still know people new to this who WHEN I TELL THEM HOW THIS IS, they just go "you're full of ****" because they can't accept it and they're still trying and struggling to get their A+ and genuinely believe that's going to get them a job. I don't tell them they're not, but if asked I tell them what I've experienced and SO MANY others I know have experienced.
IT'S MESSED UP, getting rejection letter after rejection letter (I've done upwards of a thousand applications since 2months before graduation and I did my whole degree in 2 semesters w/ no transfer credits to help) saying "Sorry, you don't have the skills necessary for the job" and they didn't even DO any ASSESSMENT, especially when the job is "SOC Analyst" or "Cybersecurity Consultant" and that's EXACTLY what you're certified and practiced IN. THERE ARE NO entry level jobs offered by the LARGEST ORGANIZATIONS DHS Cyber? ZERO entry track jobs... CISA? ZERO entry level jobs... Army Civilian Excepted Services? Yeah, entry level jobs... You'll make less than at McDonalds and have to move across the country and yeah, it requires a MASTERS and 2 years experience and NOTHING counts unless you've ALREADY GOT A JOB IN THE AREA.
You hold A+, CySA+, Pentest+, Project+, Network+, and an eCPPT and people EVEN IN THOSE ROLES often don't have any certifications? So what, now I need to go take the OSCP and god knows what else and THEN after 30k+ in debt, will I really get hired if EVERYTHING ELSE up to this point has been COMPLETE BULLSHIT? I've had DoD employed Pentesters ASK ME TO HELP THEM CHEAT on the eCPPT after I posted that I had passed because they had tried 4 TIMES and just couldn't do it.... yet they'd say "Well I don't even need a certification because my name is my certification. I've got 10 years experience"...
Then how do I outperform you with "none"?
I'm not a contrarian so I'm like "Hey, good for you" but "NO, I'm not helping you cheat.... While I CAN do it, you can't but you're getting paid and I'm NOT... I don't think you need MORE of an unfair advantage, jackass." This guy sits there SO COMFORTABLE while talking about how stupid it is for new people and how he'll NEVER lose his job.. This job he obviously can't even DO.
Don't get me wrong, eCPPT isn't that great but I'll be damned if it's not MORE than enough to get an entry level job in SOMETHING I.T. I know plenty of people who can't do it but CERTS COUNT FOR NOTHING because GATEKEEPING IDIOTS can't let them, or ANY EXPERIENCE outside the workplace be respected because then they'd have to actually be competent and COMPETE FOR THEIR OWN JOBS AND THEY CAN'T FUCKING DO IT!
Do Cyberforce, get assigned a tenured, 10 year employee for state government Cyber as your team leader and a second that has 8 years not far under that. She goes "Um, how do you connect the VPN. I've never done it on CLI" and COULDN'T EVEN OPEN THE OPENVPN -H menu. Pre-game network hardening and scans? They run NMAP and copy/paste results, google the stuff, and report EVERYTHING THEY READ, not know ANYTHING about ANY of it OR EVEN TRYING TO LEARN, let alone how to check for the actual presence of these vulnerabilities? So I have to do allll of that, then I have to go and implement an IDS system.....
THEN, during the competition, even after YOU SHOW THEM HOW to use this tool (neither of you have ever used), they make excuses and continuously ONLY CALL OUT YOUR TEAMS OWN IP'S and boss everyone else around... THE MOST 'EXPERIENCED' PEOPLE ARE SOOOOOO OFTEN THE WORST ONES I'VE SEEN.
Why does that mean we have to fucking starve? I'm soo sick of it.
Practice 40 hours a week for 5 years, go get a degree and a dozen certs before you even apply, that way you can make SURE you're not falling into the 'SKILLS GAP' these fucking incompetent dinosaurs complain about to justify sheltering themselves from HAVING TO COMPETE AND ACTUALLY PERFORMING THEIR JOBS by strangling the careers of HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS hard-working youths IN THEIR CRADLES....
and EVEN THEN you get told by some idiots "Sorry, you don't have any experience" and they don't even TEST YOU before they say this shit. They CERTAINLY don't test THEIR employee's, hired 10 years ago w/ no barriers to entry, because their uncle or friend was secretary or CEO of the nepotistic incest reach-around department..
but more importantly, when you've done what's NOT required by ANY OF THE CERTS OR EDUCATION but things like eCPPT, OSCP and similar practical lab exams... and you can't even afford those, but even if you could would it make a difference? Maybe a little bit...
But you DON'T HAVE TO TAKE OSCP to PRACTICE WHAT YOU'RE LEARNING until you can outperform the vast majority of incompetent competitors who can spew acronyms but can't apply ANYTHING THEY TALK ABOUT.... and, yes, even many (not all but MAAAANY) employed "PROFESSIONALS".... and these MASSIVE organization don't bother to even TEST YOU, after you put in THOUSANDS of HOURS, before they say you're "Unqualified" and have "NO experience. PERIOD."?
THESE ORGANIZATIONS THAT PUSHED THESE RIDICULOUS PROJECTIONS ABOUT MILLIONS OF UNFILLED POSITIONS? AND THEN WON'T FUCKING HIRE YOU, OR EVEN TEST YOU, WHEN YOU DO ALL THE OUTLINED TRAINING AND MORE?
I Swear, I don't wish this on ANYBODY but I DO kind of hope it does... because then, in 5-10 more years, there will be an ARMY of overtrained, disenfranchised hackers that might actually burn this shit to the ground while these idiots struggle not to piss themselves because they never ACTUALLY learned how to secure ANYTHING... Or really to do much of anything but write "Reports" that SOUND like they're doing something, copied straight out of an automated scanner.... and they make 150k a year for this shit while WE starve, training our asses off ON THE PROMISES SPOKEN FROM THEIR LIPS, THEIR WORDS.
If we started a class action lawsuit against EVERY unethical marketing campaign for cyber education, the government, and ANY corporation who profited off selling us down this black hole of a "career path" WHO WOULD SIGN UP? Who would invest for legal fees?
I don't think this shit will change and we'll have the meritocracy or opportunity we WERE PROMISED unless this happens... and we supplant the old guard and abusers of poweauthority, and broken system, and replace it with HARD performance metric requirements for jobs rather than "experience" requirements and "references"....
IF YOU TRAINED AND CAN DO SOMETHING. YOU HAVE A SKILL AND IT SHOULD BE VALUED REGARDLESS OF WHERE YOU ACQUIRED IT.
REGARDLESS OF "EDUCATION"..... HOW MUCH MORE DO WE DO BEFORE OUR EFFORTS ARE FUCKING RECOGNIZED???
How long until we DO something about this bullshit people?

2023.06.01 06:06 octagonocologist 'Twas The Night Before Launch

'Twas the night before Launch, when all through the forum
Not a player was stirring, they all were a snorin'
The files were preloaded and filled was my cache
In hopes that the servers soon wouldn't crash
The zoomers were nestled all snug in their beds
While old man redditors argued instead
This class is trash, and this class is strong
They went back and forth but they all were wrong
When out on twitter there arose such a clatter
Turns out the devs don't think a head start matters
Away to the internet the sweats flew like a flash
To call Rod Fergusson a know-nothing ass
The moon on the breast of our new demonic waifu
Products like Bad Dragon and Freshlights surprise you
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear
But a GPU update, with an icon on the gear,
With my little old drivers, so lively and quick
I knew in a moment it must be a trick
Don't dare download or else you'll be hurt
And have to end up spending time to revert
"Now, ROGUE! now, NECRO! now, DRUID and SORC!
On, BARB! on PALLY! on DH and on MONK!
To the top of the charts! To the top of the stack!
Now race away and get your name on the plaque.
As theory crafters scramble to make a build work
We think about all the pvp players we'll merc
So on to the posts our fingers flew
Saying "I'll get the first and gatekeep you"
New builds emerge in the dead of night
Everyone hoping this time they're right
As I scour over the Paragon tree
I pray that RNGesus will be with me
Visions of Legendaries danced in my head
And hoping that this time I'd have good luck instead
A bundle of Premium Currency is what I have
Because I'm impatient even though pre-orders are bad
KFC buckets lining my room
I will have the awesome chicken skins soon
Hacking and slashing I make my way through the mobs
My build is viable and I am a god
Millions of damages, in heaps and gobs
Alas, it was just a dream, I am such a silly sod
The animals are fed and the gf is sated
I sat there alone and patiently waited
The download done and the software updated
All that was left was to finally play it
So away we go and sleep till noon
Then we can order pizza and mountain dew
Here we are at the end of our plight
HAPPY LAUNCH TO ALL, AND TO ALL 'GOOD FIGHT'!

2023.06.01 05:54 Sulshin day 35 to day 1

thought i would try drinking in moderation… went to the pool with my buddy on day off, drank 9 beers over the course of maybe 6 or 7 hours. yes lol for me that is very much “moderation”, if i let myself fully off the leash it would be 15 beers and 10 mixed drinks over 12 hours.
anyways, point is, it didn’t feel good. I didn’t feel euphoric or relaxed. The 35 days off, took my tolerance away, and the drinks made me a bit dizzy and uncomfortable. I went home early and housed 5 tacos and a small pizza, passed out, woke up at 3:30 AM because my heart was pounding and spent the entire next day hangover and feeling like shit… So basically all the negatives and no positives, maybe it’s a good thing that I fell off a little bit just to realize the alcohol is not that cool… It kind of sucks. what’s the point? Getting hammered sucks, drinking in moderation sucks… there are people who can drink one glass of wine with dinner and stop themselves, but those are Aliens as far as I’m concerned.
guess this time I’ll be going longer than 35 days

2023.06.01 05:27 thunderjax 24 Hours Later: My thoughts on the early release.

I tried to keep this literally as brief as I could but ended up having a lot of thoughts about this game so I jotted them down. I'm not going so much into the creation/customization aspect as that's not the area of the game I focus on mainly as I just focus on gameplay, mainly due to the fact that I have the creativity of a pet rock. However, if it came down to a drawing competition the pet rock would probably win, but anyway, let's get into it:

Overall and final thoughts, the one saving grace I will give Metalhead is that this is still an early release, as the actual "true" release is coming on Friday, and even then there is still time after that to fix a lot of the issues that have been plaguing the game with reported crashes, weird lighting glitches and a couple of gameplay glitches as well.
Would I call the game unfinished or just SMB 3 give and take edition? Honestly no, could the new stadiums and "legends" have just been made DLC for 3? Absolutely, especially considering the customization from what I've heard hasn't changed all that much, but it does appear that the engine is either new or got an overhaul, but there is definitely an air of not quite being finished and to see what direction the DLC's will go in the coming months outside of the 3 stadiums that those not playing the ballpark edition will have to grab as DLC for to play peril point and the other two that are coming, it'll be interesting.
As unfortunately expected, this game has split the community, which isn't entirely unexpected. I think it gives to say that despite Metalhead's promise that there was something for everybody and the hype that came into the game, someone was going to get screwed in the process, and that appears to have been the franchise/customization crowd. Of course, there are those who had their doubts about the new game as well as those who know what EA's reputation is and wish for nothing but the absolute worst for the company with good reason (speaking as somebody who was once a battlefield player, you don't have to dig that far to find the crap they've been up to) but while I don't trust EA, considering what metalhead has been able to do despite having the expectations and now living under the EA cloud, we can only wait and see.
Would I have still bought the ballpark edition pre-order at $60 knowing it would be this, probably not, but while this game does a lot to be desired, the core of the game itself, the gameplay is still there, but I can definitely understand the frustrations coming from the community too.

2023.06.01 05:11 angelolandi How Much Sodium in a Teaspoon of Salt?

How Much Sodium in a Teaspoon of Salt?
Salt is a common ingredient in many meals. However, too much sodium can increase your risk for health problems like high blood pressure and heart disease.
Healthy adults should not consume more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day. You can reduce your sodium intake by using herbs and spices to season foods instead of salt, avoiding processed foods, and choosing natural, unsalted seasoning blends.
How Much Sodium in a Teaspoon of Salt?

Table Salt

Sodium is an essential nutrient found naturally in many foods, but it can also be added to processed foods as a preservative and flavor enhancer. When added in excess, too much sodium can increase the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and other health problems. In addition, too much sodium can cause the body to retain water and lead to dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. A teaspoon of table salt typically contains around 2,300 milligrams of sodium, which is nearly your daily recommended limit for sodium intake.
Table salt is harvested from underground mines and processed in factories to remove impurities, add anti-clumping agents and enrich it with iodine. It is 40 percent sodium by weight. Sea salt is also made by evaporating ocean water, but it undergoes more processing to remove impurities and add iodine. The remaining 60 percent of sodium in sea salt is comprised of trace minerals that can provide health benefits.
Aside from table salt, sodium is also found in many other foods, especially processed or packaged items, such as cheese, bacon, lunch meats and canned soups. It is also in some condiments such as soy sauce and salad dressing. Sodium is also present in some fresh fruits and vegetables, including peppers, broccoli and cauliflower.
To reduce sodium intake, read the nutrition labels on food packaging and choose items with lower levels of sodium. When possible, eat foods in their whole form and season them with herbs, spices and low-sodium condiments to avoid excess sodium consumption.
Ideally, you should aim for a maximum of 2,300 mg of sodium per day for most adults and 1,500 mg for children under 14 years old. Excess sodium can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and other health problems.
Using an accurate measuring spoon and reading the sodium content on nutrition labels can help you stay within your daily sodium intake recommendations. When purchasing packaged foods, look for'sodium' or'salt' (which includes both sodium and chloride) in the ingredients list to determine how much sodium is in a serving. If a food doesn't have a nutrition label, search for the item on a nutrition website or mobile app to learn its sodium content.

Sea Salt

Many people use salt as a seasoning, and it is essential to the diets of some individuals. However, excess sodium can lead to high blood pressure and cardiovascular issues, so it is important to monitor the amount you eat. A teaspoon of table salt typically contains 2,300 milligrams of sodium, but the amount can vary by type. Sea salt, Himalayan pink salt and kosher salt contain less than the table variety, but it is still important to monitor your intake.
Sodium is an essential mineral that helps maintain fluid balance and support muscle functioning, but too much of it can be unhealthy. The recommended daily intake of sodium is no more than 2,300 mg per day. However, most people consume significantly more than this amount. Most of the sodium in a person’s diet comes from processed and packaged foods such as canned soups, breads and rolls, chips and crackers, pizza, fast food and frozen dinners.
A teaspoon of sea salt typically has around 1,000 mg of sodium. This is significantly lower than the average table salt, but different types and brands of sea salt can have varying amounts. It is best to choose unrefined sea salts, which have fewer additives and retain more of the trace minerals that are naturally occurring in coastal environments.
The most effective way to reduce your sodium intake is to check the nutrition facts on labels and avoid high-sodium foods. Read the ingredient list, and look for the words “sodium,” “salt” or “NaCl.” You can also try to add more fresh herbs and spices to your dishes, as they tend to be lower in sodium than salt.
With careful monitoring and some simple dietary swaps, you can reduce your sodium intake without sacrificing flavor. A few small changes can make a big difference, and you may be surprised to find that it is easier than you might think!

Himalayan Pink Salt

Unlike table salt, Himalayan pink salt is unrefined and contains a variety of trace minerals. These minerals give Himalayan pink salt its light pink tint and unique flavor. Himalayan pink salt is often used in place of regular table salt in cooking, and blocks of Himalayan pink salt are even sold as decorative home décor items, such as lamps and salt shakers.
Some people claim that Himalayan pink salt has numerous health benefits, including promoting healthy skin and aiding sleep. However, very little research has been done on Himalayan pink salt, and these claims are largely based on speculation.
One claim is that Himalayan pink salt can improve your skin by removing toxins and helping it stay hydrated. It also may help with acne by balancing the pH level of your skin. However, it is important to consult with your Ayurvedic doctor or dermatologist before trying Himalayan pink salt on your skin.
Himalayan pink salt reportedly contains a variety of trace minerals, including potassium, calcium, magnesium, and iodine. It is possible that these minerals are more beneficial to the body than sodium chloride. However, the body needs very small amounts of salt to function properly, so it is important to consume only as much as is necessary.
Consuming too much salt can have a number of negative side effects, such as high blood pressure and an increased risk of heart disease and stroke. Those with heart or kidney problems should also limit their intake of salt. Regardless of which type of salt you choose to use, it is still important to check the nutrition label on packaged foods and to avoid those that contain excess sodium.
The recommended daily amount of sodium for adults is less than 2,300 mg per day. You can control how much sodium you eat by using an accurate measuring spoon or scale, choosing low-sodium foods and reading the nutrition label on food packaging. It is also helpful to limit your consumption of processed foods, such as canned soups and vegetables, breads, and snacks, and to eat at restaurants that serve fresh ingredients instead of those that use a lot of salt.

Measuring Tools

Salt measuring tools can be very useful for keeping track of sodium consumption. Some are very portable and easy to use. Others can be used to measure the concentration of other minerals in liquids such as water, juice, and milk. These measuring devices detect the presence of sodium ions (Na+) and chloride ions (Cl-) and convert their conductivity into the concentration of salt. This allows users to accurately assess the salt content of any liquid.
Recipes with lower levels of sodium
It is recommended that individuals reduce their sodium intake in order to stay within healthy guidelines. Increasing salt intake can increase the risk of hypertension, heart disease, stroke, and other health problems. Eating too much salt also contributes to weight gain and can make it difficult to maintain a balanced diet. There are many ways that people can reduce their sodium intake and keep it below the recommended limit. These include choosing unsalted foods, reducing the amount of processed foods in their diet, and avoiding adding extra salt to food while cooking or at the table.
Another helpful strategy for reducing sodium consumption is to read nutrition labels. Most packaged foods will have the sodium content listed on the label in milligrams. The amount of sodium in a food can be found in the ingredient list as well, and it is important to note that some foods contain different amounts of sodium even if they are made by the same manufacturer.
It is also possible to find low-sodium versions of many of the most popular food products. In fact, it is common for similar US foods to have lower levels of sodium when sold in other countries. Some people may also choose to use natural seasoning blends that do not contain salt instead of traditional table salt. Keeping a food journal is another way that people can keep tabs on their sodium intake. This will allow them to see how much sodium they are consuming over the course of a day and help them make adjustments accordingly. The more that an individual knows about sodium, the better they will be able to manage their intake and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

2023.06.01 04:43 TobyAguecheek I'm sorry if this is too out there. Pope Francis and pizzagate connection?

I hope this is not too out of left field, even for this sub, but...after seeing this image, I was curious: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E9PrRSWXIAg0-uo.jpg
Obviously, these symbols are what pizzagate is about...the Pope always struck me as odd, with his comments promoting LGBT (not even defending, but outright promoting), defending cardinals accused of bad stuff, and other weird things.
When he met with Trump at in May 2017, there is a famous photo of them. I never knew, but shortly before this photo was taken, there was an encounter between Melania and Pope Francis. The Pope asked Melania what she feeds Trump. Melania responded, "Pizza". Francis began laughing and in my opinion had slightly odd body language. Almost as if he was too calm and acting excitedly in a fake way to show he wasn't bothered. Then shortly later, this photo seems to have been taken ( https://static.independent.co.uk/s3fs-public/thumbnails/image/2017/05/25/10/donald-trump-pope-francis-vatican.jpg ). The exchange was caught on video. You can't make this up. Video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5RTqWt46Cc&ab_channel=Haaretz.com
Later in December of that year, the Pope announced he would celebrate his birthday by having a pizza party. .
2015: In a recent interview, Pope Francis was asked if he missed anything since taking on his role as leader of the Catholic Church. He replied, “the only thing I would like is to go out one day without being recognized, and go to a pizzeria for pizza.” Something tells me the Pope Mobile does not blend in too well with other traffic. https://spoonuniversity.com/news/popes-one-wish-eat-pizza-man-makes-happen
Pope Francis: "The devil shows up in disguise. His style is to present himself in a twisted, disguised way. He starts with what we like most and then he draws us to himself, little by little. Evil sneaks in without the person realizing it. Over time, this subtle evil becomes apparent."
