2023.06.07 02:20 Blansephx what if i wanna make a 2d plataform game with 16 bits music? even if the game is'nt?

i have this question several times since i wanted to make a 2d game ,the thing is that i said to me that i need to learn how do pixel art but im still too new to advance in something, the question is that the music I want to use is made in 16 bits and I wanted to keep the style, but I've reached a point where I don't know if it's better for me to make normal drawings to really make great progress, so is it ok to make a game that doesn't have pixel art but with 16 bit songs? I know there are games that use pixel art and have modern soundtracks but here the case is different if you know what I mean

2023.06.07 02:07 HatanaMarketing Sunifiram: A Comprehensive Analysis for the r/SwissChems Community

https://swisschems.is/product/sunifiram-powder-10-grams/ code CHEMSEX10
Greetings, SwissChems readers! Today, let's turn our attention to a potent nootropic that's been making waves in the cognitive enhancement community: Sunifiram. We'll explore its potential benefits, dosage guidelines, side effects, and precautions you should consider.

What is Sunifiram?

Sunifiram (DM-235) is a synthetic derivative of Piracetam, which is considered the pioneer of nootropics. However, Sunifiram is far more potent - preliminary studies suggest that it might be up to 1000 times more potent than Piracetam!
While Sunifiram is still relatively new to the market, its potency and the range of cognitive benefits it may offer have quickly established it as a popular choice among nootropic users.

Potential Benefits of Sunifiram

Sunifiram is predominantly used for its potential cognitive-enhancing properties. Here's what you might expect:
  1. Enhanced Memory: Sunifiram is reported to boost both short-term and long-term memory. It may improve recall and the ability to process and store new information.
  2. Increased Learning Ability: Many users report that Sunifiram improves their learning capacity, helping them absorb and retain new information more effectively.
  3. Improved Focus and Attention: Sunifiram may significantly improve concentration levels, making it a popular choice for those facing demanding cognitive tasks.
  4. Mood and Energy Enhancement: Some users report increased motivation, improved mood, and heightened energy levels.

Dosage Guidelines for Sunifiram

Given Sunifiram's potency, it's crucial to adhere to recommended dosage guidelines. The common dosage range is between 5mg to 10mg per day. However, beginners should start with a lower dose to assess tolerance. Remember, when it comes to nootropics, 'less is more' often rings true.

Potential Side Effects and Precautions

While Sunifiram is generally well-tolerated, some users have reported side effects, particularly at high doses. These may include headaches, anxiety, restlessness, and nausea. Always start with a low dose and monitor your body's reaction.
It's also worth mentioning that Sunifiram's long-term effects haven't been extensively studied yet. As with all supplements, it's important to approach its use responsibly.


Sunifiram offers significant potential for cognitive enhancement, from boosting memory and focus to improving learning capacity. Its potency makes it an attractive option for many nootropic users.
As always, remember to consider your individual health circumstances, do your research, and consult with a healthcare professional if necessary before integrating a new supplement into your regimen. In this way, you can safely explore the benefits of Sunifiram and other nootropics.
Here at SwissChems, we encourage responsible and informed use of all supplements. Stay tuned for more in-depth discussions on various nootropics and their potential benefits.

2023.06.07 01:37 calamas3 Unusual degree situation - has anyone gotten a STEM OPT extension for a concurrent master's?

Hello! I joined reddit for this, please be kind if I make any faux-pas.
I've hounded our school's international office, scanned USCIS, and at one desperate point sent out mass listserv emails to see if anyone was in the same boat, and found no definitive answers to the question. Which is:
Can I get a STEM OPT extension for a concurrent STEM master's I'm doing at the same time as a non-STEM PhD?
I'm on an F1 visa, and the master's is a CS degree at one of HYPSM, no issues being a "recognized accrediting agency" by SEVP. But this being an unusual way of getting a master's - a concurrent degree to a PhD -, the MSE overlaps in time with my PhD, and I'm confused about whether this will fly as an independent degree when I file the application to USCIS.
One information the designated student officer at the international office told me is that I'll need to get the master's conferred before the PhD, which I checked with the registrar's office is something I can do (I can get the MSE a semester before I receive the PhD).
I'd appreciate any and all advice on 1) whether this is true, and 2) if so, big picture advice on what sequence of actions need to be taken. Would I trigger the usual 12-month OPT after my PhD graduation, and during this time, apply for an extension using the master's as a "previously obtained degree?" Is this possible? I'll be primarily looking for academic positions - tenure-track and postdoc.
A million thanks to any kind souls who can share wisdom or similar experiences.

2023.06.07 01:22 Quiet-Minute2357 Just know it gets better

This is a post for people whom have been in a shit situation but still won. My personal experience is this, my landlord (private) wouldn't do no repairs unless it was law required. I had black mold in both mine and my partners bedroom and our kids room. The list of repairs is whole different thread. But after 6 years of asking for shit to be sorted he decided it was time for us to leave. So a section 21 was issued and we was classed as homeless. The day came for us to leave and we was told by the council that they had nowhere for us go, we ended up in a hotel about an hour away with both kids and 3 suitcases. Which was a ball ache! BUT..... Here's the winning part.... We got placed in a beautiful 2 bed flat in a new build with an open plan kitchen, fully furnished all amenities included for £28 a week, the staff on Xmas eve brought me and my family about 25 presents between us. It was the kindness thing anyone outside of our family has ever done for us! Unlucky luck!

2023.06.07 01:15 amybk27 Advice on cat needed

My sweet 18 year old cat started having diarrhea 2 weeks ago. Not regular diarrhea, but like walking from corner to corner in my house bearing down and dropping brown liquid. She is eating noirnally and acting normally otherwise. I took her to vet immediately and she checked out fine (gained weight, no fever, no lumps, looked healthy) other than having developed a heart murmur. We gave her metronidazole and she was better until 3 days after starting meds and same thing happened again. New vet and new script.
My question is, where can you take a cat to get all tests at once, aka heart murmur checked and what is going on in stomach? I don't want to do a cardiologist and our vet as she needs to be sedated to do blood work and further tests and I would prefer it to be all at one time. Are their types of places that do this? Or should I not even bother with a cardiologist. The urgent care vet scared me that it's early heart disease. I don't know the degree. My vet didn't seem concerned, but he's a she's 18 she's going to die soon type of guy.

2023.06.06 22:58 ireland1904 I just found out that my boyfriend (25M) has stolen from me (24F). Where do I go from here?

Let me set the scene, my boyfriend (25M) and I (24F) have been together for 7 years this April, and he is the best partner in every way. We have very similar interests, have made many improvements in our communication, support each other through tough times, and love each other a ton.
Currently, we live together and have for 2 (almost 3) years.
My boyfriend, let's call him Dylan, has always had money issues and some significant mental health challenges (depression and ADHD) that flared up about 2 years into our relationship. Obviously, I did nothing but support him, and he has made many improvements over the past few years -- particularly in handling his mental health by getting medicated and seeking professional help.
But money remains a struggle for him.
For example, more than once, he's been late on rent and has had to ask our landlords for extensions which he always handled appropriately and then paid off in full when he could. Previous landlords and I have always been understanding, ESPECIALLY because we are both full-time students who live in a very expensive city.
Another essential piece of info is that he absolutely refuses to discuss money or ask for financial help from his parents, although they have offered and would be willing to help him out of a bind (and they have before)!
He has disclosed to me that money/finances are his biggest anxiety and that often, ADHD makes it hard for him to keep track of his money, particularly if it is just on his debit card, because he cannot physically see it.
I understood this because I know ADHD affects decision-making, processing, and risk-taking behaviours. I generally believed he was improving in this area by seeking specialized help for his ADHD. I also made suggestions that might help him keep track of it (i.e. putting money in envelopes monthly so that he can see the cash). But he never followed through with this advice.
We have had lots of conversations about the future of our relationship (marriage, moving, kids, etc.) and how I need to see improvements in managing his finances before I feel comfortable committing to him in that way. He 100% agreed and has told me that those are efforts and changes he wants to make before we move forward in our relationship.
Last month or so, I've come to find out that he has stopped attending his counselling/therapy sessions (likely due to being unable to pay for them, though he did not disclose that to me directly), but he reassured me he was doing well. He has also recently come off his anti-depressants (per his doctor's recommendation -- if I can trust what he is telling me).
Whatever, these changes were no biggie to me, and it seemed he was still doing well without those supports.
I am currently in a rigorous post-graduate program at a university in our very expensive city, and I have been unable to work full-time hours for A WHILE now, meaning my own finances have taken a dive, and I have been very strapped for cash. I have had to rely on loans, grants, measly savings, and occasionally help from my own family to get by and pay my bills.
However, my partner has been working full-time since September.
A few months ago, my friend and I purchased Taylor Swift tickets which might not have been an excellent financial decision. Still, I never splurge on myself and seeing Taylor would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. However, paying for the tickets and the Air BNB deposit nearly took all my money.
In the months since I bought my tickets, I have been saving any spare cash that I have toward my trip and expenses in a "safe" location in our shared apartment. Between birthdays, graduation, and a few other instances of my family wanting to send me money, I saved close to $500 for my trip. I was very proud and excited about having some money to put toward a fun trip this summer.
My partner knows what this money is for, how broke I am, and where the money is located because I TRUST him.
Today, I got home from visiting my family (my boyfriend stayed behind) and deposited a bit more cash into my stockpile, only to discover that there was only $100 sitting in the pot...
I was heartbroken and didn't know how even to react. Obviously, my partner has stolen $400 from me without informing me.
I confronted him via text as he was at work, and he explained that he had taken the money to pay off last month's rent without my consent/knowledge. He seemed genuinely apologetic and told me he planned to replace the money before I got home from my trip, as he now has the cash on him.
But I don't know what to do. I feel that my trust is broken, and upset that he feels that he can steal from me without consequence. I am hurt and considering telling his parents that he is financially struggling to the point that he has stolen from me ...
But I also know that he is clearly struggling with mental health and stuff beyond just money ... I know that ADHD can be crippling and make these sorts of decisions seem justified.
What is your advice? Do I forgive, move on, and accept the money he is willing to pay back? How does this bode for the future of our relationship? How can I ensure that this doesn't happen again? Is this normal behaviour from someone with ADHD? Should I reach out to his parents privately?
I am at a loss.

2023.06.06 22:47 DGTHEGREAT007 How to increase mental fortitude, discipline, focus, courageous/brave and confidence.

By the title of this post, you can guess what I am. I am mentally weak, lazy, procrastinates alot, gets distracted too easily, can't focus, cowardly (emphasis), and zero confidence. I want to fix this. I don't have any problem due to these in my social life per se. I am a normal, funny guy people generally like to be around. I fake confidence. I have friends and all that. But in some situations I run like a bitch. I run away from awkward situations, like physically run, like awkwardness makes my bones grind. Very very closed as a person. I am not what people perceive me to be. It's all a facade. To cover my real personality, that of a piece of shit human being. I do not console people when they need it. I don't offer a helping hand. I'm too scared and wary of what others think about me. Im scared of fights, even when fighting for the right thing. I start shaking when I do something even remotely confrontational. Like my hands trembling and lips quivering when I was confessing to one of my good friends that I roasted her in her qna (the roast was pretty brutal and she was complaining and cursing the one who had said it in the friend group (the roast was anonymous)) fearing that she would hate me for it. I overthink alot. Like I stop like a robot. I daydream alot. I sleep late. I don't wake up early. One of friends was in a toxic relationship and I knew it but couldn't make her come to realise it. I rolled with it, I pushed her into it, towards the toxic guy. Wtf was I doing. I am a piece of shit human but I want to change that. My inability hurts those around me and I don't want that. I want people to come to me for help without hesitation.
PS: sorry this is a vent/help/question post.

2023.06.06 22:36 mrstoffer Can't log in for some reason

When I try to log in it always prompts me with resetting my password. But the email to do so never arrives. I've tried literally dozens of times to reset my password but the email just doesn't arrive. This problem started half a year ago.
When I try to make a new account with the same email address, it used to give me a warning that my account was banned, but now it just says that the user already exists.
I don't know how I could be banned because the only things I did before being locked out of my account were setting up my profile. I never sent a single message or joined a single server. My account lasted for only a few days
I contacted support in December but never got a response. Then I just gave up.
Now I want to give Guilded another go again but the problem still persists
I contacted support again and am now awaiting my answer.
Could somebody maybe help me or share their experiences in the meantime? I'm suspecting that this happens because I use an [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) address but I can't find any info on that

EDIT: As sheer luck would have it, EXACTLY at the moment I clicked send, a reset password email from Guilded arrived in my inbox! Don't know what I did differently this time around but after literal months I can finally use Guilded again!

2023.06.06 21:56 Murbon Losing almost every game this past week -- what am I doing right and wrong?

Support main here. I’m on a loss streak, and I’d like to get some broad assessments on what I’m doing right and wrong. I just keep feeling like I’m off tempo with the rest of my team. I made it up to Diamond 5 this season by playing aggressively, but now I’m slipping to low Platinum.
I don’t need moment-by-moment breakdowns; I tend to recognize my mistakes as soon as I make them (and I make many). I’m just looking for some simple concepts that I need to keep in mind in my next match.
The matches below are from last night. My Battletag is JemmyMB. Thanks in advance!
2A6Z4H: Rialto - Loss (Moira, Mercy) I swapped to Mercy because we had a DPS (Echo) that was the clear leader in damage, but wasn’t getting many elims.
K4STWZ: Midtown - Loss (Ana) My aim is garbage, but I stuck with Ana because I thought we had this one. We… didn’t.
ZT0NWF: King's Row - Win (Mercy, Lucio, Brig) Super rusty on Lucio, but our Pharah wanted one for some reason? I dunno why, but it worked.
KPMPV7: Ilios - Loss (Moira) The other support and I were blamed for this loss – Maybe it was our fault. I don’t know how to handle enemy Doomfists… should I be helping his target? Should I be pushing with my frontline?
YSYS5M: Numbani - Loss (Mercy, Brig, Moira) Embarrassing loss; we couldn’t get the first point. Went Mercy to pocket our DPS, but got stuck with the tank too much. Switched to Brig to counter a dive that never happened.
CSXZBR: Paraiso - Loss (Moira, Mercy) I felt really, really out of sync with my team in this match. It almost felt like we all wanted to be super aggressive, just never at the same time.

2023.06.06 21:48 Designer-Contest2844 Is my (25F) mom (60sF) a narcissist?

Hi All, I (25F) have been in therapy for the past year and a half to focus on an estranged relationship with my father over his narcissistic tendencies, where I always highlighted my mother as the "good" parent. However, follow some significant reflection, I think that my mother (60sF) might be a narcissist in her own right and I'm looking for feedback.
My mom always likes to say that from the time she was pregnant with me, she intended me to be her "buddy" through a marriage that she felt largely isolated in. Growing up as an only child, she was incredibly involved in my care, but had significant parenting flaws - she was physically abusive, and used to pack a bag and threaten to leave while crying crocodile tears if I ever threw childhood tantrums. Because she was the "better" parent in comparison to my dad, I was often willing to excuse her behavior. Now that I'm an adult, I find her behavior more than I can bear.
My parents separated about 4 years ago, and I find that my mother has made the divorce her entire personality. Though she is estranged from my father and her former in laws, she makes consistent attempts to make up narratives about their lives that involve her, including how my terminally ill grandmother (her former mother in law) wants my mom to visit her deep down and is waiting to die until their relationship has closure. She also highlights how she was "wronged" in every interaction with my paternal side of the family, even though she was the "perfect" wife.
This tendency to insert herself into the lives of others has taken root in my own life. I've done quite well for myself at my age - I have two Master's degrees, and was recently promoted to a senior role at my current company on a much shorter time frame than expected. However, my mother finds a way to insert herself into these accomplishments, either to elevate herself or diminish my capacity. She claims that I'm only smart because she paid for tutoring, read to me as a kid, etc, and has established the expectation that I should live at home with her until I'm "independent" (I have both the job security and financial resources to live alone). She also repeatedly makes comments about how I should aim to buy her a house "close to mine when I move out," and regularly talks about how if I hypothetically win the lottery, my first goal should be to "buy my mother a house."
My romantic relationship has also become a point of contention for her - I've been with my boyfriend (25M) for the past three years, and I feel that he's the one- we've grown alongside one another through career ups and downs, he's shown me genuinely compassion, and allowed me to let down my walls. However, my mother feels it necessary to diminish our relationship, highlighting that "I only love him because he popped my cherry," how we're a poor match because he's like my father and I should pursue someone she thinks is right, and delegitimizing attempts to move in together as "playing house." She also insinuates that my boyfriend is using me for money even through we both make comparable incomes and maintain entirely separate finances.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, but what do we think, Reddit? Is it time to delve into my mother potentially being a narcissist with my therapist?

2023.06.06 20:32 hedimh27 How to keep my cat from making mischief at night?

Hi!!We adopted a young cat (around 1 year old) back in November and since then the our sleeping shedule is a mess. She keeps waking us up at night at least 4 times. That wouldn't even be a problem since she refuses/doesn't like to use her litter box, so we have to let her out to do her business. But it's not just about that, most of the them she's just hungry or wants to play. Me and my mother are both waking up at 5 or 6 am everyday for work and school and it's pretty exhausting, not getting a full nights sleep. Especially for my mother, who has a chronic illness, that's already making her feel bad mentally and physically. The biggest problem is that the cat only calms down, if she gets food, otherwise she jumps on the furniture and starts to "kick" things down, so we can't even ignore her. We can't put her outside, because then she's scratching at the window and once again it's impossible to ignore it. We obviously don't want to overfeed her, so the nighttime snacks have to go, but we don't really know, what to do. Most of the time feeding her doesn't even help and I or my mother lose at least an 1 hour sleeptime.

2023.06.06 20:28 erikho Help with 6th Gen iPad and slow Wi-Fi speeds

Not sure if this is the best community for this topic so please point me in the right direction if there is proper place.
To start, I’m admittedly not too familiar with Apple devices and iOS/iPadOS in general. I’m having an issue with the iPad my wife is using and I want to see if anyone can help get to the bottom of it. I’ve done a bit of searching and have applied what I do know, none of which seems to get us anywhere.
Its an 6th Gen iPad with Wi-Fi, and has been running fine up until recently. I’m not sure exactly when it started but the network speed on the iPad has just plummeted down to almost nothing. It struggles to load even the simplest websites. Other devices on the network are working just fine, I have a PC and my Android phone getting 200+ Mb/s down and my wife’s iPhone pulling similar speeds. These devices, along with the iPad are all on our 5GHz network. We have cameras on the 2.4 GHz network that are working fine as well. Recently, the iPad will pull anywhere from 0.5 to maybe 4-6Mb/s on average. Same story if we move it over to 2.4 which I expect to be lower anyway, just not that low. For fun, I tried to hotspot my phone (connected to the 5GHz network) and the iPad started pulling ~160Mb/s but slowly went back down to nothing once I tried to run a system update (I think I was trying to go from 1.6.3 to 1.6.5 or something similar). Google hasn’t been much help but here’s what I’ve tried so far.
- Rebooted the Wi-Fi router
- Rebooted the iPad
- Reset network settings on the iPad
- Reset the entire iPad from backup
- Deleted the backup and reset the entire iPad again to start from nothing.
After the final reset, we tested it and it was pulling 200+ Mb/s like normal so we thought it was fixed but again last night it was back around 0.5Mb/s. So, it seems capable of being fast, its just not thrilled about doing it for long.
The only time I got somewhere was when google pointed me in the direction of the WMM setting on the router. The post mentioned something along the lines of having better luck with that disabled even though Apple states that it should be enabled for proper use. Sure enough, WMM is enabled on my router and disabling seemed to boost speeds on the 5GHz network to around 30-60Mb/s down (better but not what we should be getting). The downside to this was that phone, which was getting 200+ tanked down to around 20-40 if I’m remember that correctly, so that was quickly enabled again which sent everything right back to the way it was before, fast phones, slow iPad.
At this point I can’t think of anything else to try, our bedroom shares a wall with the room containing the router, so its not a distance limitation thing, in fact, when we tested it after the full reset, we were downstairs far away from the router. The iPad is clearly capable of hitting those high speeds on 5GHz since it does it after it was fully reset. I’ve checked for a few settings I saw in some posts about the iCloud backup and how that could be slowing it down, however those settings were already disabled when I checked (can’t remember exactly what they were now).
Any advice or ideas of other things to try would be greatly appreciated.

2023.06.06 20:25 shutterbuug First time here

TLDR: I’ve gotten sober. I’m not sure it’s super interesting, but here it is. .
In my early 40s now, drank most of my adult life, and teens really. College was several days a week, grad school probably at least the weekends, professional life still drank heavily 2 or 3 days a week. Socially acceptable to drink casually when entertaining clients, but I always went home and had a stiff “night cap.” Got married, had kids, kept this up.
I was never a “bad drunk” insofar as I didn’t embarrass myself in public, get in fights, or other trouble. My wife and others I think genuinely enjoyed my personality drinking or not. People that know me have always said it was essentially the same. Most people have said they’d never really knew I was drunk. I could always ingest large amounts without displaying stereotypical drunk behavior. Even when I was young, when 4 or 5 beers would really impact most peers (heck, most adults), I’d kind of have a mild buzz. I could always tell I’d been drinking, but others really couldn’t.
During the pandemic it became an everyday thing, and not just a couple drinks. Large amounts of bourbon and scotch, probably a 1.75L every 4 or 5 days, supplemented on weekends and holidays by beer during the day. Massively hungover or drunk most of the time. I thought panic attacks were anxiety, but really it was alcohol withdrawal on a semi regular basis. When to hungover to even go to the store, magic, pandemic started home delivery. Obviously a quick stiff drink would fix the panic attack problem.
After sleeping through a school bus pick up (my wife was there to do it thankfully), I realized I’d had enough. There were innumerable other instances, many which were probably more significant for my wife, but for me that was the kicker. She didn’t know the panic attacks were alcohol withdrawal, but she knew it was alcohol related for sure. I’d already taken a work from home job which made being hungover even easier to get by. I would avoid going a lot of places where I couldn’t drink (eg school functions) and blame “social anxiety”. If it was a function with booze, I at least knew I could have a drink or two if needed without others judging alcohol on my breath to even out.
Two years earlier (a year into the pandemic) I reached a similar point, but thought I could control it after stopping for 2 months. Obviously, I couldn’t. I don’t think this is a unique occurrence. My wife was pretty frustrated, but didn’t fully understand the amounts I was ingesting. She’d see me have a drink before dinner or an afternoon beer or two after mowing the yard on the weekend. Her being an early bed time person, maybe 9 pm, the real drinking would happen after like 9pm-1am. If she got up, she’d see me with one more drink - no big deal. She didn’t think it was a huge deal. Here’s a guy having one more drink at night while dealing with his job, family, pandemic uncertainty, etc. I love(d) alcohol, I still probably do. The first feeling of warmth after a two or three finger pour, it’s the best. Problem is I’d make it 9 fingers worth by the end of the night.
Sometime in September, I came downstairs one morning after missing the bus. I told my wife how much I’d been drinking and for how long. the pandemic wasn’t the reason, it just gave me the opportunity to dive in and have meaningful excuses. My kids are thankfully young enough they won’t remember me flaking because of anxiety, withdrawal, or whatever, and I have an opportunity to do things right. I’ve had a ton of repairing the emotional distance the booze out between me and my wife.
After that conversation in September, I worked my day, then I went into a room with about 4 mini bottles of scotch and a 12 pack of Gatorade on a Friday, I can’t remember the exact date. I haven’t been honest with anyone about the amount and what I’d been doing before or since. Even the first time I tried and stayed sober a year or so ago, I did not acknowledge the extent of it. I told my wife I’d need at least two days, she said ok. Plan was to only have a mini bottle if I couldn’t get the heart rate under control, I knew it would spike from the last time I tried this. I had one at some point that first overnight. The next 48 hours were not pleasant, plenty of the falling off a cliff sensation when sleeping, tons of sweat, but got through it without more booze. I haven’t had any since.
Two weeks after I stopped I was laid off. This was less than ideal to say the least, but I didn’t start drinking again.
I haven’t taken myself out of social situations, drinking or not. I just say I’m not drinking. Or to friends that knew me as always having a whiskey with them, I just say I’m trying something else for my health or whatever. Nobody has ever pushed it on me. I still play cards. Or go watch the football game. Or hang out at the pool. Honestly, others drinking, including my wife, is not a trigger for me. Ironically, I miss drinking by myself the most. The 10 pm scotch when nobody is around. That’s the one I miss the most. Second would be having a drink with my Dad, I miss that too, and haven’t been totally honest with him about it. I just say I’m taking a different health approach. He doesn’t push it and respects it. But I do miss that.
I will also say that stopping hasn’t fixed every problem in my life, it has made me recognize that grownups deal with their problems head on. After getting laid off, I have since found the best job I’ve ever had. There’s no way I would have been able to make it a permanent thing if i was drinking.
AA wasn’t for me. I do believe in their system of living an honest life. Which I think I always did. I have shown my full self to my wife, which I didn’t until I stopped drinking. And now internet strangers I guess. Even now I can’t really imagine saying I’ll never drink again, but I can say with confidence I won’t drink today.
I won’t say life is better than ever since I quit. Some of my best times were drinking. However I can say my life is more full, or rich, now that I’ve stopped. If I miss something, I’m not lying when I say I’m sick. I just have COVID or the flu and it’s real. I can be there, and have been, for friends and neighbors at 3 am when previously I’d have been passed out. More important, I am willing to go throw the baseball or work on swimming with my kids.
I don’t know exactly how long I’ve been sober, mid September ‘22.

2023.06.06 20:18 changeusername37 Bs goes brrr

Idk what to say, idk what's going on, i think my life might be going too fast(but that's also what's keeping me half sane, adrenaline), a few mins ago i had a random urge to cry(coz i had no idea what's going on with my life) but i forgot how to(might Google "how to cry" later), i can't remember crying foover anyone anything in last years, i can't remember the last time i cried, even tho i encourage others to talk about what's bothering them and then try helping them, i myself don't like talking about my problems (i got/had quite a lot, i go with the suck it up and cope mechanism), i make my life appear all nice and good by hiding bad things or wording them differently as well as wording things to make them better than they are, i dropped my therapy after the first session(trust issues, was worried what if she tries using the information against me), i don't really feel emotions(I'm kind of a robot, even tho people don't really think so, coz i try not let them know), i don't get attached to anyone/anything, i can't even fuckin genuinely smile(but i can smile like a good salesman or in a really sarcastic way), i do not trust anyone(yes, not even my __insert who ever you trust the most), i stay silent don't really talk with people(even tho i do open up random small talks with random people, i don't like if they keep it going for long, or if they reach out later, i can act like I'm really interested even tho i wouldn't be thanks to customer dealings, no one can really offend me, I'm really self critical of myself, I'm a perfectionist(I'm tryin to deal with it), there's A LOT more than just this, and idek why I'm doing this but I'll take this down tomorrow

2023.06.06 20:10 obe-wan-tacracker Computer died - looking to rebuild

My computer that I built approximately 8 years ago finally died. I got a blue screen on Windows that simply told me there was an error on a critical process and not much else. I have had issues with this PC in the past so this does not come as a surprise. I attempted to troubleshoot the issue but have not had any luck and I am now looking to rebuild. I am looking to reuse what I can and replace the parts that need replacing.
I have used this computer for gaming in the past but do not do any PC gaming at the moment, mostly due to the performance of my computer and time constraints with kids. Right now, I am hoping to get it up and running so that I do not have to use my work computer for personal use. I use 2 1080 monitors at the moment.
I am hoping to stay around $300 with what I will be reusing but this is fairly flexible.
I will be purchasing parts in the U.S.

*Lowest price parts chosen from parametric criteria
Generated by PCPartPicker 2023-06-06 14:06 EDT-0400
The parts that I will be reusing/already have:
Power Supply: This is what I already have and I believe it is more than enough for this build. Even though the price is included in the list, I will not be spending this since I already have it.
Case: I already have this case and it is OK but it seems like it will work so I will reuse it.
Video Card: This will be the weak point of this PC and the part that I will look to upgrade in the future. The video card was working and should be good enough to get the computer up and running.
Please give me any advice/suggestions that you have. The parts that I am unsure about the most are the mobo and the CPU. I know the ones selected are not top end so please let me know if there are better ones at a similar price point that you think would work better.

2023.06.06 19:52 hudson4351 Citi virtual account number questions

I have a Citi Double Cash card and a few years ago was able to create a virtual account number that allowed you to specify:
  1. a maximum dollar limit that could be charged to the card
  2. an expiration date that could be as short as 1 day in the future (IIRC)
Now I'm logged into my account via the desktop website and the only options I'm seeing are:
  1. an optional daily spend limit (but no overall maximum limit, or even a monthly limit)
  2. an expiration date that must be at least 1 month in the future
Did they remove the other options completely or am I just not looking in the right place on the website?
Also is it possible to generate virtual account numbers from the app? I can't seem to find a way to do it.
EDIT: After some searching it appears the system I am describing is known as VAN 1.0 on this sub; VAN 2.0 is the one I'm now using for the first time and seems to have far less functionality than the old VAN 1.0:

2023.06.06 19:38 TheGoldenPi11 Can we petition Rumble to add a personal "Library" function like YouTube?

Rumble is missing what I think is a very important feature and I'm hoping there's enough of you who may feel the same to encourage Rumble to implement this helpful feature Youtube has had for years. I've always found it especially useful for research and simply easier reference to videos I've watched or want to watch soon but don't have time to in the moment.
What we're stuck with now is having to remember what video was where or pasting the links on a document with notes rather than having an easy customized system of catagorized thumbnails with titles by simply clicking one or 2 buttons. How do you feel about this?
