22M Doubt about injections for B12 deficiency

2023.06.08 10:13 afposthuman 22M Doubt about injections for B12 deficiency

Hi! I have B12 deficiency and since I'm in Mexico it's difficult for me to get methylcobalamin injections, but I can get these injections in a lot of pharmacies with no prescription, they are called "bedoyecta":
https://www.fahorro.com/bedoyecta-tri-5-jeringas-con-2-ml...
Each injection of 2ml contains:
- 10,000 mcg of B12 (Hydroxocobalamin)
- 100 mg of B1 (Thiamine)
- 50 mg of B6 (Pyridoxine)
The problem with this is that is too much B6 and if I inject that much in a prolonged period of time it can be toxic, so my question is:
Can I just squirt the 2ml it into a reusable vial and then just get 1/10 of the total of the injection with a 1ml syringe? This way I will get 1000 mcg of B12, 10 mg o B1 and 5 mg of B6, a much safer dose.
The problem I have is mostly with having the other part of the injection stored after opening the original syringe because in the package it says "if not all the product is administered, discard the excess", so I'm not sure if this is safe. I don't want to use tablets because I'm not improving with them, they just stop me from getting worse.
Thanks for you attention! Hope you can answer.

2023.06.08 09:53 _Urnsuk Complete Guide About Cremation Jewellery

Complete Guide About Cremation Jewellery
Everyone yearns for a touching tribute that stands out from the crowd. If you love someone, you don't want to be too out there about how close you are to them. You wish to honour their memory but may feel free to erect a massive memorial. One beautiful means of doing so is with a piece of cremation jewellery. Here, discuss how to use and fill them, and uncover some lovely jewellery monuments.

What is cremation jewellery?

Cremation jewellery is any piece of jewellery that is worn in memory of a lost loved one, and either contains their ashes or is imbued with their DNA. Even if you want to bury your loved one, you can still purchase cremation jewellery uk in which their ashes or hair will be preserved. You can easily find something suitable for your budget and taste among the wide selection of cremation jewellery available today. When a loved one's cremains are divided, many families choose to commemorate the occasion by purchasing unique pieces of jewellery for each family member. It's a wonderful opportunity to join others in honouring the memory of a loved one who has passed on.

When it comes to cremation, how do you create jewellery?

For example, cremation jewellery made of glass requires a very different manufacturing technique than a cremation bracelet made of sterling metal. Rings, bracelets, necklaces, lockets, and charms are all appropriate options for cremation jewellery. You can find examples of each in silver, gold, plastic, glass, and steel, among other materials. Cremation jewellery, in general, is crafted in the same way as different types of jewellery. Most cremation jewellery is designed to store a small number of cremains by hollowing out a section or infusing a selection of the jewellery with those cremains. However, this is the only variation. Alternatives to ashes can be included in cremation jewellery: a locket of hair, a little piece of favourite clothing, some burial dirt, a favourite flower, etc.

When it comes to jewellery, what exactly separates cremation jewellery from memorial jewellery?

Cremation jewellery is made specifically to keep a loved one's ashes or hair close at all times. You can wear a piece of memorial jewellery to honour the memory of a loved one who died. This can be given in the shape of a ring, bracelet, necklace, or pendant and typically includes the recipient's name and a meaningful inscription.

Haven't seen any posts on these yet they seem to have been released on sale this morning further to a Discord update:
The main attraction seems to be just how small and dinky the 'Mercury' is, it comes only with one version containing the 6800U, 16GB of RAM and a 512 SSD, but fits in the palm of one hand. Introductory sale price is $400/£400. I won't be getting one having recently bought a UM560XT. But I like them.

2023.06.08 09:04 TopList4035 Best Perfume Oil Company : What is it and How Does it Work?

Perfume oils are made with a blend of essential oils and carrier oils. The essential oils give the perfume its scent, while the carrier oils help to dilute the essential oils and make them easier to apply. Perfume oils have a number of advantages over traditional perfumes. They are:

GenericPerfumes offers a wide variety of perfume oils, including both original fragrances and fragrances that are inspired by popular designer perfumes. The company also offers a custom perfume oil service, where customers can create their own unique perfume blend.
To use a perfume oil, simply apply a few drops to your pulse points, such as your wrists, neck, and behind your ears. The perfume oil will then diffuse throughout your body, leaving you with a long-lasting, luxurious scent.
If you are looking for a high-quality, affordable, and allergy-friendly alternative to traditional perfumes, then Perfume Oil Company is a great option. The company offers a wide variety of fragrances to choose from, and you can even create your own custom perfume blend.

How to Choose the Right Perfume Oil?

When choosing a perfume oil, there are a few things to keep in mind:
Once you have considered these factors, you can start browsing the different perfume oils on offer from Perfume Oil Company. The company offers a wide variety of fragrances to choose from, so you are sure to find something that you love.
If you are not sure which perfume oil to choose, you can always contact the company for help. The staff at Best Perfume Oil Company are always happy to help customers find the perfect perfume oil for their needs.

How to Apply Perfume Oil?

To apply a perfume oil, simply apply a few drops to your pulse points. The pulse points are areas of the body where the blood flows close to the surface of the skin. This will help the perfume oil to diffuse throughout your body, leaving you with a long-lasting scent.
The pulse points include:

How to Care for Perfume Oils?

Perfume oils should be stored in a cool, dark place. This will help to preserve the quality of the oil and prevent it from evaporating.
Perfume oils should also be kept out of direct sunlight. Sunlight can damage the oil and cause it to lose its scent.
If you are not going to be using your perfume oil for a while, you can store it in the refrigerator. This will help to extend the shelf life of the oil.

Conclusion

Perfume oils are a great way to add a touch of luxury to your everyday life. They are long-lasting, affordable, and less likely to cause allergies than traditional perfumes.
If you are looking for a new perfume, then I encourage you to check out GenerciPerfumes. The company offers a wide variety.

2023.06.08 09:02 Allicia_York First Contacts (Part 7)

[Part 1](https://www.reddit.com/HFY/comments/131t1q9/first_contacts_part_1/)
[Part 6](https://www.reddit.com/HFY/comments/13xe87q/first_contacts_part_6/)
“Welcome to the Endeavour 2.”
Nathan had already chosen to name the frigate after his experimental warp ship, I wondered if that meant he intended to keep hold of it but the limited number of Doradul crew was my largest concern.
“Only 20 Orvangians?”
Nathan’s smile dropped away and he rose from his seat, “I am sorry Jin, the Axarli shot and killed several on the planet’s surface, these were the only prisoners they recovered.”
Halor the Doradul’s Secondary Ops Officer made the Orvangian Gesture of Greif from loss before taking the pilot’s seat that Nathan slid out of.
“I am glad to see you and Doc got to the shuttle safely, but you should probably get some rest, that’s what I am going to do now.” Nathan gestured back to the elevator.
Once we were aboard the elevator, he thumbed the button for Deck 9 where the shuttle was stored.
“What course are we on?”
“Halor plotted a course to a Federation System called Polivor, we will be there in about a day.”
Once we reached the shuttle Nathan and I gathered our things and headed for Deck 4 officer’s quarters. Nathan claimed the Captains Quarters and offered me the First Officers, it was nowhere near as comfortable as the Doradul, in that respect it was much more like the Endeavour, it was a single chamber with a bed, chair, desk, and storage compartments, no more than 6 square metres of floor and barely 3 metres high.
All I had in the way of possessions was a Laser Rifle, a Space Suit, and the pack of seeds from the Doradul, Purple Valuri Seeds my mother had given me when I left for the Doradul. The Chamber didn’t have enough lighting for flowers to grow, the gloom better suited to the needs of the Sovereigns or Euterians.
I Stowed my things and extracted myself from the space suit, it looked ugly now, not the smooth bluish appearance it had once possessed, there were dozens of scratches on its hard segments and the Separatist sealant was brown leaving a couple of dozen irregular dirty-looking smudges where I had sealed it.
My uniform was no better, torn and tattered I had been wearing it for hours when I was sent to recover Nathan from the Endeavour 1, it smelled dirty and pink staining surrounded the tears.
Entirely disrobed I lay on the bed and dimmed the lights, the last sleep I had managed was back in the escape pod, it felt like that was days ago. Despite my exhaustion, it wasn’t easy to fall asleep, perhaps it was the stinging of wounds or the death of so many Orvangians that I knew, sleep took over an hour to reach.
I dreamt of the first year I served aboard the Doradul, we were surveying systems in the Tilbas Sector, looking for worlds that would be suitable for Orvangian settlement, they were peaceful days wandering the stars in search of beauty and quiet, I had built many friendships with members of the crew, among them was Wula, she served as a Geological specialist, surveying planetary crusts for stability. I had gathered her family seal from her body when I was on the Doradul, hers and two others, Palos wasn’t exactly my friend, a support Engineer, he was after my job but I did not wish to see him dead and Worgan, I didn’t know him well.
I woke after a few hours, my bedding stained with lymph from a wound on my side, it had opened again as I had slept. The only thing I had to wear was my torn and stained uniform so I donned it again and headed for the medical bay on deck 3.
Doctor Hule and the Tilik Nathan called Doc were here, treating plasma burns on Sub Officer Florn, she had been a ground officer during surface surveying for the Doradul.
Doc moved over to the second bed and patted it with a tentacle so I hopped up and gestured to my reopened would “It started weeping again”.
“Not to worry, I can go over them all with more care now that there are no enemies at the door.”
Doc began to treat my wounds taking time to seal and patch each one, it took over an hour of work for him to finish and I did feel considerably better.
“Thanks, Doc” I slid off the bed and turned to leave.
“I suggest you also visit the quartermasters on deck 7, they can sort you out something clean to wear.”
Clean clothes and a shower sounded great so I headed straight to Deck 7, the Doradul’s own Quartermaster was here and she soon had the ship fabricate two new uniforms for me, both now showing the embroidery pattern for the Doradul as a Memoriam pattern, though she had not included an Endeavour 2 pattern.
The deck where my quarters were had a shower block, suited to the use of four so that all the senior officers of the frigate could use it at once. I was the only one there though so I took my time cleaning, ensuring that the grime of recent events was gone.
Finally clean I donned a new uniform and stowed the other in my quarters before heading to the bridge.
Halor was still in command, using the Pilots chair as a sort of captain’s seat as he reviewed the ship’s systems and supplies, not that the information was necessary, we would be arriving at Polivor in less than 20 hours now and he would most certainly be disembarking, we all would. This ship was evidence of the Separatists’ rearming against the treaty they had signed when they lost the war.
“Jin! I thought you would be resting after all that excitement.”
“Sleep is difficult, I was hoping we had a crew roster.”
“We do” he indicated an auxiliary console “But I am sad to say that neither of the Doradul’s Therapeutic officers are with us.”
I sat on the padded bar that counted as an auxiliary station seat and brought up the roster, Nathan and Doc were both listed as well as the 21 survivors of the Doradul, 84 had died in the attack on the ship, those whose seals had been recovered were also listed, so I added the three I had collected and quietly wept for a few moments at the losses we had taken.
Less than 40 seals of dead crewmembers had been recovered and were currently being displayed in the galley on deck 3 so that was my next destination, the elevator was in use so I took the ramps.
The Galley was busy, 10 of my crewmates from the Doradul were here some at a wall where 35 seals hung in memoriam of the lost, and others were sitting at tables with the separatist equivalent of ration packs.
I approached the memorial wall and hung the three seals I had recovered, Jola and Nero gave me sympathetic hugs in response. Jola had worked with Wula as part of the survey teams so she offered to make the bond and share memories of our friend and colleague.
We sat and shared our memories through the Bond, the experiences we had each gathered of Wula being integrated, the social evenings I had shared with her, and the work humour Jola had experienced, each memory we shared built a greater picture of our lost friend in our minds and helped us to become closer friends as a result.
After the bond was over, we sat together and ate, the Separatist ration packs were simple, a grain and nut disc with a side of dried berries all held in a small plastic pouch. It wasn’t as good as the fake chicken that Nathan had shared but it was enough to sate my appetite.
Others in the Galley were sharing memories and meals, we may have lost the therapists but our shared experiences were helping us to cope with the losses.
I was about to depart the Galley when Nathan arrived with Doc, Nathan’s arms were loaded with ration packs of his own kind, far more than he could reasonably eat, and Doc was carrying a couple of bottles of medication.
Nathan selected a table next to mine and began laying out and snapping tabs on containers, a total of eight each with the same markings as the fried chicken I had tasted. Doc opened the bottles and dumped the pills into a bowl.
Once the circles turned red Nathan tore lids off packs and released the delicious smell of chicken “Ok everyone, feel free to try some Southern Fried Chicken, Be aware that the coating is a little toxic to Orvangians, so please take an Anti-Toxin pill from Doc here before you eat!” he spoke loud and clear so that everyone turned their attention to him and the smell.
I moved swiftly to the table and dry swallowed a pill before selecting a piece of chicken and biting down. My first taste of this had been without the coating so I had not been able to experience the full delights of its flavours, the coating was quite spicy though the anti-toxin was doing a good job of keeping it from being painful.
Soon others were trying the food for themselves and Nathan found himself explaining that it was not meat once again, though most were satisfied with no explanation. The atmosphere soon became more jovial and Nathan asked Buddy to play some music by another Buddy, this time a musician called Buddy Holly.
The Chicken was soon gone but the uplifted spirits would not fade so quickly, Nathan chatted with everyone, sharing jokes and stories from his people. For a few hours, the galley was a happy place.
Eventually, Nathan and I headed to the bridge to relieve Halor and monitor systems during our journey. I had never served aboard a ship built by another species before, the console layouts and bridge plan here were designed for a mixed species crew with effort made to offer interface and seating flexibility for all the races of the Separatist movement.
Someone had already modified screen layouts to better suit the Orvangian standard and seats were largely configured for our lean forms, the pilot’s chair being the only exception.
“Nathan, you understand that the Federation is likely to want this ship for study.”
“Halor told me. It’s fine though just leaves room for an Endeavour 3.” Nathan followed the statement with a Grin, something the other Orvangians on the bridge were still not used to, but I found myself grinning back causing a surprised reaction from the rest of the bridge crew.
There wasn’t much to do at warp so much of our time was just familiarising ourselves with the ship and its many systems, the Endeavour 2 was originally just referred to as the TX210-B, a combat support Frigate with an arsenal of ship-to-ship weaponry, it was designed to fight, having no other purpose.
After a few hours we were relieved of duty ourselves, Florn being the next most senior officer, he had no experience commanding a ship, but his rank was just below mine and he did command ground survey teams so he would manage for a few hours of Warp travel.
Nathan and I departed the Bridge together “You hungry?” Nathan nudged me as he spoke.
“I haven’t eaten much the last couple of days.”
“Let’s head to my quarters and grab some food then.” We used the ramps to reach deck 4, Nathan’s Fabricator was set up on the desk in his quarters and six ration packs were stacked inside it.
“Your fabricator can make food?”
“Yes, I fed it some of the separatist ration packs and it can make a half dozen different food options from them.” He took a pack from the machine and held it out to me.
He cleared the machine and started it on the next load, then he gathered the stack he had built beside it, almost two entire batches worth and headed back up to the Galley. Once we arrived, he deposited all but one of the packs onto a table at the end of the room and selected a seat at another table.
As I sat with the pack he had given me I noticed that the writing on the pack that had been in Nathan’s language when we had shared chicken on the shuttle, was now all in Orvangian, indicating the instructions to cook the meal and describing itself as a ‘Closed Spicy Meat Sandwich with vegetables and Fruit Sauce’ once the circle turned red I tore open the top to reveal a pair of shell-shaped things, they didn’t look like sandwiches really, they smelled of cooked meat and spices.
“I had Buddy modify the ingredients to eliminate toxic properties so enjoy.” Nathan bit into the crunchy exterior and juices dripped from his chin as he ate.
It was delicious, though I still preferred the chicken he had provided before. Several crew in the galley helped themselves to a pack and soon the whole galley smelled of the spices and meats of this Human food.
Two of these sandwiches were a little much for an Orvangian so most of the crew were sharing packs. After I finished one sandwich Nathan asked “You going to eat that?”
“No.” with that Nathan demolished his third and seemed sated.
“Captain Nathan. Could Buddy play some more music?” the query came from Asor a junior engineer by rank.
“Sure! Buddy, can we get some Dolly?”
“Playing Dolly Parton.” Buddy began with a song about working long hours and soon the galley was full of Orvangians badly singing along.
Eventually, the poor sleep I had gotten over the last couple of days was too much for me and I departed the music and joviality of the galley and returned to my chambers, the small size and lack of a garden hit me again as I entered the metal box military officers call spacious quarters.
Exhaustion made sleep much easier this time and I managed a good six hours of rest, my dreams largely of my childhood and memories I had gained from my bond with Jola. When I awoke it was to the voice of Nathan “All crew, we shall be arriving at the Polivor system in one hour, All crew to stations.”
I climbed out of bed and donned a fresh uniform, depositing both my dirty and tattered one into the laundry chute before heading for the bridge.
Nathan was in the Pilots chair and Halor was standing at an auxiliary station, I took a position at the first officer’s console and examined the navigation data, we were now just 35 minutes from our destination.
That time soon vanished as we prepared the ship for arrival, we would look like a separatist ship so Halor had modified our transponder data to indicate that we were the Endeavour 2 under the Galactic Federations Flag, still, we would need to prove we were not hostile so I set the weapons to safe mode and prepared a transmission of my security code and a message to indicate our allegiance. Nathan prepared to take control of the ship’s course moments before the Warp drive shut down.
We dropped out of warp at 2.2 million kilometres from the Military Outpost in the outer system.
Two Separatist Cruisers were waiting for us, barely a thousand kilometres from our arrival point they immediately opened fire, particle beams lancing out at us with their crimson fury.
Nathan’s reactions were on par as usual, jerking the controls to starboard and hitting full thrust the moment he saw the ships. He managed to evade the worst of it but a blast cut a streak across the port side of the ship, two turrets were hit and auxiliary communications were burned off the ship.
“Jin, Arm Weapons, focus fire on the sunward side ship! Halor, get me data on the state of the system.” Nathan yelled orders as he twisted the Endeavour 2 among the beams.
I had set the weapons to safety thinking we would need to look non-threatening, it was going to take two minutes to get weapons back “Captain, two minutes for weapons!”
Halor set secondary displays to show the devastated Outpost and the distant flashes of conflict over Polivor 3 “Captain, there are 5 Separatist Battleships in orbit of Polivor 3 and the Military Outpost has been destroyed.”
He paused for a moment as though he could barely believe his next statement, “We are at war.”

2023.06.08 08:26 boopthesnoot09 employment lawyer? whistle blower attorney? what do i need?

throwaway for obvious reasons.

for close to two years i've been employed (had been?) by a corporate chain restaurant. i've always been a team player who pitches in all over the restaurant, a great employee who comes in early, stays late, works on days off, etc. i've never been written up or even called into the office to talk about my performance, and routinely do tasks that aren't my responsibility to help everyone else. i've always gotten along great with co-workers and management.

treatment of employees runs the gamut, depending on who you are and how the managers, GM specifically, feel about you personally. accountability is only for certain people while others get held to different, or no, standards. ethics flew out the window a long time ago. management is willing to turn a blind eye to certain offenses for certain people, while others get fired for the same thing. favoritism is rampant, blatant, and obvious. personal information about employees, including things like who's getting written up and for what, is passed around to other employees by management. while some employees are held accountable for not finishing their work before clocking out, others not only don't finish their work, but chat with managers while everyone else does.

early last week, i was asked by the GM to perform a task that is not listed as a duty of my position and for the first time in two years, said no. that task hadn't been completed by the earlier shift and instead of addressing it with them, the GM rather expected me to do it for them. when i said no, i asked the GM why it hadn't been done by the people that were supposed to do it, and without an answer they walked away.

a couple of days later, when the new schedule posted for the following week (this week) my shifts in my primary department dropped from 5-6 (with doubles) to 3. i've been full time, five days a week, for at least 1.5 years. i asked a couple of the managers why (although not the GM) even though I knew why, and one of them confirmed that the GM went behind their back to change my schedule and remove shifts after the manager over my department had finalized it. i was also demoted from my position as a trainer without a word or a conversation or any notice at all, i found out when I went to clock in the same day the schedule posted and saw that my clock in code for the trainer position had been removed. i've been training for at least a year, if not longer, and in a conversation about 3 months ago with the GM they told me that i was going to be the primary trainer for that department, and said "i want a whole team of boopthesnoots. i want everyone on that team to work like you do." it's been roughly a month or so since someone trained in that position, and i was the one that trained them.

the list of violations in that restaurant are absolutely insane, ranging from things that the health department, osha, the CDC and the fire department would absolutely be interested in. issues are most certainly made aware to management and the only time anything changes is when a 'big boss' stops by for a visit, and then things revert to 'normal.' i reported a serious health code violation to a manager on saturday morning and when i returned to work on wednesday, nothing had changed whatsoever. i can't stress enough that these aren't small things like hair nets not being worn when preparing food, gloves not being worn when handling food, i'm not even talking about the pests in the ice machines that an exterminator has never been called out for, the kitchen knives that are never washed even when they come into contact with allergens or raw protein before being used on produce, or the cold foods that are kept too warm or the hot foods that aren't to temp when served. i'm talking about being told to serve expired food, pathogen exposure, and very unsafe methods of handling foods that contain salmonella. osha would have a field day . the fire department would lose their gourd.

tonight a team member discovered that an item that had been served throughout the day, for close to 8 hours at that point, contained protein that had not been thoroughly cooked and was still raw in some areas. (think a stew or a casserole where everything is mixed together.) that team member told me when it was discovered as i was looking for that item, and a member of management was immediately informed. 20 minutes later, i saw an employee scooping that same food item from its pan to serve - because it had not been removed and because employees had not been told to not use it. the rest of the batch was discarded by the team member that made the discovery.

at this point i felt that it was time to inform upper management- beyond the GM, who was not in the building today, that raw proteins known to carry salmonella had been served throughout the day and that the food item had not been removed upon discovery of said rawness. i sent a message through our internal communication platform to the district manager, who is the next step above the GM, simply saying i needed to speak to them immediately. they responded in approximately 6 minutes saying they were with family but i could leave a message with my number and they would reach out in the morning. i responded saying that it was a health issue, and that it was serious, and never received a response. about an hour later i received a message through a personal form of communication from an employee telling me that the district manager had forwarded my messages to the GM, wanting to know why i was talking about reporting health and safety issues, without ever responding to gather information. this same DM was in the store today, although they left before the issue was discovered.

returning to work is not an option. while i know they can't fire me for reporting this, they can and will make my life hell until i either quit or they find a 'legitimate' reason to fire me. i refuse to return to what is now a hostile environment. i've seen many people get screwed over for trying to do the right thing, and the GM can and possibly will make it very difficut for me to find a new job. the GM has absolutely been known to reach out to other businesses to prevent them from hiring a former employee, or even current employee that had been looking. at this point i need to consult an attorney to figure out what my next steps should be, before speaking to anyone from the company. all the pleases and many thanks, if someone could point me in the right direction, i'd be eternally grateful. location is ohio.

Both Redis and MongoDB, with their unique strengths and characteristics, have carved niches for themselves in certain types of applications. However, the choice between them is not always clear-cut and can be influenced by a multitude of factors such as the nature of data to be stored, speed requirements, scalability needs, and more.
The goal of this comprehensive article is to illuminate the key facets of Redis vs MongoDB. By contrasting their features, strengths, and weaknesses, we aim to equip you with the necessary understanding to navigate this critical decision confidently. Through this guidance, we hope to steer you towards the right choice for your project, optimizing the performance, scalability, and manageability of your application.

What is Redis?

Redis, an acronym for Remote Dictionary Server, is an open-source, in-memory data structure store used as a database, cache, and message broker.
At the heart of our comparison lies Redis. An acronym that stands for Remote Dictionary Server, Redis is a potent and versatile solution in the data management space. It is an open-source tool, meaning that its source code is freely available, promoting transparency, community-driven enhancements, and adaptability to specific needs. The free availability of its source code aligns with the ethos of many developers, supporting the continued development and refinement of this high-performing software.
Redis operates as an in-memory data structure store, which significantly impacts its performance characteristics. The term 'in-memory' signifies that Redis stores data directly in the server's main memory (RAM), unlike other databases that store data on disk. This characteristic provides Redis with a substantial speed advantage, as accessing data in memory is considerably faster than retrieving it from a disk. As a result, applications using Redis can access and manipulate data with blazing speed, propelling their performance.
The versatility of Redis goes beyond just functioning as a database. It can also serve as a cache and message broker. As a cache, Redis temporarily stores frequently accessed data to reduce the time taken for data retrieval, resulting in faster response times. As a message broker, Redis supports the publishing of messages and subscribing to channels, facilitating efficient and real-time communication between different parts of an application.
Redis adopts a straightforward and effective key-value store design, allowing data to be stored as a pair where one element is a key, and the other is its corresponding value. This architecture is simple yet powerful, enabling high-speed read and write operations. Keys provide a method to identify data, and values hold the actual data itself. Due to this design, Redis excels in applications requiring real-time data processing where speed is of the essence.
Overall, the nature of Redis - its open-source status, its in-memory operation, its versatile roles, and its key-value store design - makes it an outstanding choice for certain types of applications. Especially in scenarios where real-time data processing is vital, Redis can offer a performance that truly sets it apart.

The Benefits of Redis: Speed, Flexibility, and More

Redis, as we've discovered, is much more than a simple data store. Its unique characteristics endow it with certain strengths that make it a robust tool in a developer's arsenal. The benefits of Redis are many, but two in particular stand out: its remarkable speed and its support for a range of diverse data structures.
Redis owes its blazing speed to its in-memory design. As data is stored and accessed directly from the main memory (RAM), data operations like read and write occur at a rapid pace. With Redis, you can achieve sub-millisecond latency, a speed that is often essential in today's dynamic and fast-paced applications. This speed advantage places Redis in a class of its own when it comes to applications that require real-time responses.
In practical terms, this means that Redis is an ideal solution for numerous demanding use-cases. For instance, as a cache, Redis can store frequently accessed data for speedy retrieval, effectively reducing application response times. It also shines in session management, where maintaining a fast, consistent experience for users across multiple sessions is crucial.
The application of Redis doesn't stop there. In real-time analytics, where data needs to be processed and insights need to be drawn instantly, Redis proves to be a valuable asset. Additionally, it is an excellent fit for message queuing systems, where its ability to quickly publish and retrieve messages ensures efficient and reliable communication between different application components.
Complementing its speed is another significant strength of Redis: its support for a wide array of data structures. Redis is not just a simple key-value store; it can handle data structures such as lists, sets, sorted sets, hashes, bitmaps, hyperloglogs, and geospatial indexes. Each of these data structures serves a unique purpose, and having the ability to choose the right one for the right task can be instrumental in building efficient applications.
This diversity in data structures offers a high degree of flexibility in handling different data types and use cases. For example, lists in Redis can be used to implement stacks, queues, or even a timeline of activities; sorted sets can be used to manage a leaderboard in a gaming application; and geospatial indexes can be used in location-based services like finding the nearest restaurant.
The pros of Redis lie in its exceptional speed and its support for various data structures. These advantages make Redis a compelling choice for a range of applications, from those requiring real-time data processing to those requiring diverse methods of data handling.

Cons of Redis

While Redis is indeed a powerful tool with a multitude of strengths, it is not without its limitations. Understanding these constraints is critical to making an informed decision about whether Redis is the right choice for your application's needs. The two primary limitations of Redis relate to its data persistence model and its relatively simple querying capabilities.
The first limitation revolves around Redis' data persistence model. As previously discussed, Redis is fundamentally an in-memory data store, meaning data is primarily stored in the server's main memory (RAM). While this design leads to fast data access and superior performance, it also means that data stored in Redis may not persist if the server is rebooted or encounters a failure.

Although Redis does offer mechanisms to mitigate this concern, such as snapshotting and append-only files (AOF) that allow data to be persisted to disk, these methods come with their own trade-offs in terms of performance and disk space. As a result, Redis may not be the best choice for scenarios where long-term, reliable data storage is paramount. Applications requiring a strong guarantee of data durability may need to consider alternative solutions or additional backup strategies.
The second limitation of Redis pertains to its querying capabilities. At its core, Redis operates as a key-value store, where data can be quickly accessed using a unique key. While this design works well for simple data access patterns and contributes to Redis' impressive speed, it may fall short in scenarios requiring more complex data manipulation.

Unlike databases that support SQL or similar querying languages, Redis lacks advanced querying capabilities. You cannot, for instance, easily perform operations like selecting all keys that meet a certain condition or joining data from multiple keys. As a result, Redis may be less suited to scenarios that demand intricate data analysis, complex searches, or advanced data manipulation.
In essence, while Redis is a high-performance in-memory data store that supports a range of data structures, it is not a one-size-fits-all solution. The limitations concerning data persistence and querying capabilities should be carefully considered alongside its strengths. The right decision always depends on your specific use case, requirements, and constraints. As with any technology decision, the goal is to choose the best tool for the task at hand.

What is MongoDB ?

MongoDB is an open-source, document-oriented database, meaning it stores data in a semi-structured format similar to JSON (JavaScript Object Notation), known as BSON (Binary JSON).
Like Redis, being open-source, MongoDB's source code is freely accessible, fostering a culture of innovation, transparency, and community-backed improvements.
One of MongoDB's most significant selling points is its use of JSON-like documents with optional schemas. This design choice marks a stark departure from traditional relational databases that employ structured tables and rows for data storage. In MongoDB, data is stored and organized in documents, which can contain multiple fields and data types, offering a great deal more flexibility. These fields can vary from document to document, and there's no obligation to have a predefined schema. This lack of rigidity allows developers to adapt the database structure as the application requirements evolve, making MongoDB an excellent choice for projects where the data schema might change over time.

Another standout characteristic of MongoDB is its high scalability. As businesses grow and applications generate more data, the ability of a database to scale becomes paramount. MongoDB shines in this regard, providing features like automatic sharding and replication to handle vast amounts of data and distribute it across multiple servers. Sharding allows MongoDB to distribute data across several machines, efficiently managing large data sets. Replication, on the other hand, ensures data availability and durability by maintaining multiple copies of data across different database servers.
Beyond flexibility and scalability, MongoDB also boasts powerful querying and indexing capabilities. Unlike Redis, which primarily operates as a key-value store, MongoDB provides a rich query language that allows developers to perform complex read and write operations. Whether it's filtering data based on specific criteria, joining data across collections, or performing aggregate functions, MongoDB's querying language has got you covered.

Furthermore, MongoDB supports a variety of indexes, making data retrieval even faster. Developers can create indexes on any field within a MongoDB document, including fields within arrays, improving performance and efficiency.
MongoDB, with its open-source nature, document-oriented structure, flexible schema, high scalability, and robust querying and indexing capabilities, stands out as a potent solution for a wide array of applications. It is particularly fitting for scenarios where data schemas are flexible, large volumes of data are expected, or where complex querying and indexing are required.

The Benefits of MongoDB: Flexibility, Scalability, and Reliability

MongoDB, a favored choice among many developers and businesses alike, is characterized by a multitude of strengths. These strengths revolve around MongoDB's flexibility, rich querying capabilities, scalability, and ACID-compliant transactions, all of which contribute to its suitability for handling complex data structures, big data applications, and business-critical operations.
First and foremost, the flexibility that MongoDB offers is significant. MongoDB does not impose a rigid schema on your data, a departure from traditional SQL databases. This schema-less nature means you can store documents of varying structures within the same collection, allowing you to handle data that is inconsistent or evolving. You can add, remove, or modify fields as you go, which is particularly useful in applications where the data structure might change over time.
This flexibility extends to MongoDB's powerful querying capabilities. MongoDB provides a rich query language that supports a wide range of operations, allowing developers to perform complex tasks that go far beyond simple data retrieval. Whether you're filtering documents based on specific criteria, joining data across multiple collections, or performing aggregation functions, MongoDB offers the capabilities you need. This makes it especially suitable for handling complex data structures and requirements.
Next, MongoDB's strength lies in its scalability. It is designed to accommodate big data applications and scale horizontally through a process called sharding. Sharding is the practice of distributing data across multiple servers or clusters, which can enhance performance, manage large data sets efficiently, and ensure that your application can grow without being constrained by your database's capacity.
If you're handling big data or expecting high growth rates, MongoDB's sharding capabilities can help maintain high performance and prevent the database from becoming a bottleneck. This makes MongoDB a preferred choice for big data applications where scalability is a key requirement.
Finally, MongoDB is ACID-compliant, supporting Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability (ACID) transactions. This compliance ensures that all database transactions are processed reliably and that your data remains consistent even in the event of a system failure. ACID compliance is a crucial factor for many business-critical applications where data integrity and reliability cannot be compromised.
In essence, MongoDB's flexibility, rich querying capabilities, scalability, and ACID-compliant transactions make it a robust, versatile, and reliable choice for a variety of applications. Whether you're handling complex and varying data structures, managing big data, or dealing with business-critical operations that require reliable data processing, MongoDB has the strengths to meet these challenges.

Cons of MongoDB: Memory Consumption and Data Redundancy

Like all technologies, MongoDB is not without its drawbacks. It's essential to understand these limitations to make an informed decision about whether it's the right database solution for a particular use case. Two notable limitations associated with MongoDB are its sizable memory footprint and potential for data redundancy and inconsistency due to its document-oriented design.
Firstly, MongoDB has a reputation for being relatively memory-intensive. As a document-oriented database that maintains a variety of indexes to facilitate quick data retrieval, MongoDB requires a substantial amount of memory. This is particularly true when dealing with large datasets, as MongoDB keeps frequently accessed data and indexes in RAM to boost performance. In resource-constrained environments, this can pose a challenge. If your application is running on a device or server with limited RAM, MongoDB's large memory footprint could lead to suboptimal performance or even outages.
Moreover, while MongoDB is highly performant and can handle big data with ease, it may not perform as well as some alternatives, like Redis, for in-memory data handling. Redis is specifically designed for in-memory operations, offering exceptional speed and performance. So, if your application requires real-time data processing and instant data access, Redis may outperform MongoDB.

Secondly, while MongoDB's flexible, document-oriented approach is one of its biggest strengths, it can also lead to challenges. The lack of a predefined schema means that the same data can be represented in multiple ways across different documents. This flexibility, while advantageous in many scenarios, can lead to data redundancy if not managed correctly.
For instance, if the same piece of data is stored in multiple documents, any changes to that data must be updated across all instances, increasing the complexity of data management. If these updates aren't performed correctly, it can lead to data inconsistency issues. These challenges can be mitigated with careful database design and data management practices, but they nonetheless represent a trade-off of MongoDB's flexible, schema-less design.
While MongoDB is a powerful, flexible, and scalable database solution, these strengths come with trade-offs. The database's memory footprint and potential for data redundancy and inconsistency are important factors to consider when deciding if MongoDB is the right choice for your project. As always, the optimal database choice depends on your specific use-case, the resources at your disposal, and the constraints you're working under.

For instance, if you're building a chat application, a gaming leaderboard, or an ad-serving system where speed is critical, Redis can help you deliver an excellent user experience.
Furthermore, Redis is also an excellent fit for storing session information and user profiles. Many applications need quick access to user data for authentication and personalization, and the blazing-fast read and write operations that Redis provides can make these tasks significantly more efficient. The data structures that Redis supports, such as lists, sets, and hashes, can accommodate these scenarios well, further underlining why Redis could be the right choice for such requirements.
MongoDB comes into the picture when your application requires the handling of complex querying, high scalability, and flexibility in dealing with diverse and evolving data structures. MongoDB's document-oriented design and rich query language make it a powerful tool for applications that need to process complex data and perform sophisticated queries. It's ideally suited for projects like content management systems, mobile applications, and real-time analytics that require flexibility and robustness.
MongoDB's ability to scale horizontally through sharding makes it a reliable ally for applications expecting high data growth. As your application expands and the data multiplies, MongoDB's sharding capabilities ensure that your database doesn't become a performance bottleneck.

While comparing Redis vs MongoDB, it's crucial to remember that choosing a database isn't always a binary decision. The realm of application development is replete with examples of successful applications that employ a polyglot persistence architecture, effectively leveraging the strengths of multiple databases. For instance, you could choose MongoDB for storing business data that requires complex querying and flexibility, while simultaneously employing Redis for caching and session storage to capitalize on its speed. This approach allows you to bring together the best of both worlds, thereby enhancing the performance and efficiency of your application.
The journey to choose between Redis vs MongoDB should be guided by a thorough understanding of your application's requirements and the unique strengths of each database. By aligning these elements, you can make a well-informed decision that propels your application towards success.

  • Training Mode
    • Players can remove Tactical Gear from their sixth Inventory slot in Training Mode only to allow for more diverse practice.
    • Both Tactical Gear and the Tactical Gear Carrier are provided via the Training Helper.
We also strive to maintain the fundamental system of Tactical Gear while rebalancing their overall stats this update as Tactical Gear have changed to a basic, required item for all:

EMT Gear

To primarily serve the purpose of team healing rather than self-healing, the healing feature will only apply to team members. Additionally, to balance the overly beneficial healing effects when using heal items, the usage time of heal items has been adjusted to the following:
  • Med Kit usage time: 3 seconds → 7 seconds.
  • First Aid Kit usage time: 3 seconds → 5 seconds.
  • In addition, the revival speed of teammates has been changed from 3 seconds → 8 seconds to prevent overly quick recoveries in tense scenarios.
  • Using Energy Drinks or Painkillers will now provide a 50% additional effect.
    • This boost will only be for personal use and does not apply to teammates.

Tactical Pack

  • Attachment slots decreased from 4 slots → 2 slots.
  • We wish to give the Tactical Pack a similar feel to a Level 4 Backpack. Therefore, the reduction of slots is aimed at moderating the possession of individual items such as firearms (excluding stackable items).

Spotter Scope

Improved for more straightforward and less time-consuming use.
  • Its magnification capabilities are now adjustable from 4x to 8x, allowing for more detailed observations.
  • The creation of the white passive marker is removed. The red active marker will be automatically created and maintained for 7 seconds after a scan.
  • The standard Screen Pings can also be placed while using the Spotter Scope.

Drone

  • Maximum range has been reduced from 300m → 200m.

Blue Chip Detector

The Blue Chip Detector has been perceived as an overperforming gear. Therefore, it has been decided to receive several adjustments to harmonize it with other Tactical Gear.
  • Screen update frequency: 5 seconds → 8 seconds.
  • Enemy scan radius: 100m → 50m.
  • Players who are equipped with a Jammer Pack are undetectable with the Blue Chip Detector.
< Dev Comment >
Following the initial introduction of Tactical Gear, we have observed their considerable utility in gameplay. However, we also understand the magnitude of the decision players are faced with in sacrificing a primary weapon slot for Tactical Gear, particularly in battle scenarios where mid-to-long range combat is crucial. As such, with the renewal of the Tactical Gear system, we eagerly anticipate witnessing our players' varied gameplay strategies!
For example, for solo play, we look forward to see players utilizing a strategy centered around their chosen Tactical Gear, which you'd select to complement your primary weapon. You may opt for a slow-burn approach with the EMT Gear, spending more time looting and gradually entering the Safe Zone. The Drone and Blue Chip Detector can help with a strategy that involves quick penetration of the center area, swiftly identifying incoming enemies. And the Tactical Pack could suit those favoring weapons with high ammo consumption. As for the Spotter Scope, it may be ideal for players selecting weapons aimed at precise long-distance engagement.
As for team play, we anticipate strategic looting that aligns with team dynamics while avoiding overlapping roles. Each teammate would have a distinct role, contributing effectively to the team's primary goal. Utilize the Drone and Spotter Scope for ordering and coordination. Or the Spotter Scope could enhance accuracy for those sharpshooters. The EMT Gear and Tactical Pack may also be helpful to novice players, so they could actively contribute to team survival, or even the Blue Chip Detector for optimal information delivery.
With this change, we are also committed to implementing constraints that are proportional to in-game performance - we do not aim to unfairly boost the abilities of already-skilled players. With this in mind, we've made it so that once a Tactical Gear is selected, it becomes irreplaceable. Players are required to use their chosen equipment consistently throughout the match. We have also proceeded with an overall balance update.

Phase

  • The initiative Blue Zone ruleset similar as Ranked's for Normal Matches introduced back in Update #23.1 has been applied to Vikendi, effectively reducing the overall playtime.

Item spawn

  • Vikendi's Normal Matches typically feature an array of special item spawn spots, leading to an excess of high-value items. To prevent disproportionate looting of these items, we've recalibrated the balance. The spawn rates of high-value weapons and items have been scaled down to also mitigate the disparity in the play experience with Ranked matches.
  • Lab Camp
    • The probability of finding lucky Supply Drops (holding Care Package weapons) have been boosted.
      • However, a marginal downgrade has been made in the quality of items.
      • A significant reduction has been made in the appearance rate of Care Package weapons and Level 3 equipment.
    • Critical Response Kits will now exclusively appear in Lab Camps, with an increased spawn rate.
  • Caves
    • The quantity and quality of items discoverable in caves' Supply Drops have been downgraded.
      • A significant reduction has been made in the appearance rate of Care Package weapons and Level 3 equipment.
      • 8x Scopes, Critical Response Kits, and C4 have been removed from caves' Supply Drops.
  • Secret Room
    • Acquisition of the Self-AED is now restricted to Secret Rooms, except for the rare chance of looting it as a world spawn item.
  • The Thermal 4x Scope will now only be available as a world spawn item, in Care Packages, and caves' Supply Drops. It has been removed from Lab Camp and Secret Rooms.
  • The following changes have also been made to align with the ruleset of other maps.
    • ARs, SMGs, Handguns, Crossbows, Grenades, Smoke Grenades, Stun Grenades, and First Aid Kits will spawn slightly more.
    • SRs, LMGs, Backpack (Level 1), Molotovs, BZ Grenades, C4, Emergency Pickups, Bandages, Med Kits, and Adrenaline Syringes will spawn slightly less.

Vehicle spawn

  • In terms of transportation, we noted that vehicle usage in Vikendi was lower compared to other maps, so we've amplified vehicle spawn spots and appropriately adjusted existing spawn locations.

Blizzard Zone

  • The duration of the Blizzard Zone has been increased by approximately 70%.
  • The number of snowstorms appearing in a Blizzard Zone has increased.
  • The distance between snowstorms has decreased.
  • The phases when Blizzard Zones occur during a match have been adjusted.

Cable Car

  • Player feedback concerning the rather sluggish speed of Vikendi's Cable Cars was noted, leading to a significant speed enhancement. This adjustment now allows for better encounters during transit, with an overall speed increase of 80%.

Comeback BR

  • Map
    • We have improved player's vulnerability by relocating existing objects to the back.
    • Item spawn spots have been added near player spawn locations for an optimized start.
    • Made containers more accessible by repositioning some containers and adding wooden pallets.
  • Combat time
    • Reduced combat time from 160 seconds to 100 seconds.
    • The Play Area restriction time has been adjusted to accommodate the reduced combat time.
  • The multidrops will descend earlier.
  • To prevent the decreasing survival rate as the number of participants increases during the later phases of Comeback BR, each size of the final Play Area for each phase has been adjusted.
  • The UI notifications for Comeback BR have improved.

Crowbar Interaction

  • Increased spawn rate for cabinets.
  • A storage unit specifically designed for Crowbars has been added to garages that are accessible with a Crowbar. This storage unit has a high probability of containing a Crowbar.
  • Simultaneously, we've slightly diminished the appearance rate for Secret Room Security Keys.
    • However, we've increased the spawn rates for items such as healing items and throwables.

Sound

  • Reduced the volume of wind turbines by 40%, along with the audible range.

Minimap

  • Minimap has been updated to mirror the above changes.

Ranked - Season 24

https://preview.redd.it/ewryzck9jq4b1.png?width=1920&format=png&auto=webp&s=2af89c9f32d6d692e04107d3b1e132e30a4f5c9f

ADVANCED R&D CONSOLES & BATTERIES:
We’re adding some new high-end recipes to the game!
Advanced Consoles
Just as the existing now-Advanced Tactical Consoles provide bonuses to Critical Chance or Severity, the new Advanced Consoles provide bonuses to performance in a way that scales similarly – the more a Captain collects gear that complements the Advanced Consoles, the more benefit those Advanced Consoles provide, just as it is with the Vulnerability Locators and Exploiters.
Console - Advanced Engineering - Isomagnetic Plasma Distribution Manifold
Console - Advanced Engineering - Hangar Craft Power Transmission
Console - Advanced Science - Energy Field Gradient Projector
Console - Advanced Science - Exotic Particle Amplifier
These fragments from these consoles will have a high chance to drop from Elite TFOs for every player who completed the TFO
Combine five fragments to make 1 component The specific type of console fragment depends upon which TFO, based on what kinds of R&D materials it normally rewards. While this table may change in the future, currently this is how it works, if a TFO gives:
Space particles: Engineering pet console fragments
Ground particles: Engineering weapon power console fragments
Space metals: Science drain console fragments
Ground metals: Science drain console fragments
Space gases: Engineering weapon power console fragments
Ground gases: Science exotic damage console fragments
Advanced Batteries
Six new crafted batteries are part of this update. They are made like normal crafted batteries from the R&D schools, but they carry a bonus effect.
Advanced Battery - Energy Amplifier
Advanced Battery - Targeting Lock
Advanced Battery - Hull Patch
Advanced Battery - Kinetic Amplifier
Advanced Battery - Exotic Particle Flood
Advanced Battery - Shield Resilience Boost
Anyone needs more batteries info 🔋 😁

Odyssey Remaster part of the upcoming new Flagship Event Link + Blog Post provided below;
https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/11545243-the-enterprise-f-remaster
Canonized during Star Trek Picard’s Season 3, the Enterprise NCC-1701-F began its journey into the final frontier over a decade ago, as Cryptic Studios’ own manifestation of the Enterprise Legacy.
Derived from Adam Ihle’s winning submission to Cryptic’s “Design the Next Enterprise” competition, the Enterprise-F would see a long iteration and development process under the guidance of then STO Art Lead Jeremy Mattson and STO Starship Artist Adam Williams. Williams’ work on the Enterprise F would prove a turning point in the design philosophy of Star Trek Online’s starships, embracing a sleek and organic future extrapolated from classic Star Trek ships like the USS Enterprise-E and the USS Voyager.
In 2022, Star Trek: Picard Production Designer Dave Blass reached out to the Star Trek Online team about adding the Enterprise F to the show. While it needed a lot of work, we jumped at the opportunity to finally canonize our flagship on an actual Star Trek television show.
And so, the Odyssey-class Enterprise F was totally rebuilt to the highest detail level of any Star Trek Online starship. It received a brand new material and a bespoke set of window visuals as well. The model was done just in time for use in Picard, and now, over a year after work began on it, we are very pleased to announce that this remastered version of the Odyssey-class Star Cruiser will soon be available in Star Trek Online. This remaster will go live with the upcoming Flagship Celebration event.
To see the updated visuals, ready any of your Odyssey variants and visit the ship customization interface. Then, apply the “Odyssey” preset to update your ship to the new pieces.
We are so very grateful for our passionate player base who have kept the Enterprise F flying for over a decade, and so very pleased to bring this ship to life on screen and in game.
See you out there, thattaway.

The Timeline needs you!
The special Temporal Agent Recruitment event is coming back!

We’ve updated the Temporal Agent goals to include some new ones, and removed goals from missions that are no longer in the game, so you don’t have to worry about finding Temporal Probes in places that you can no longer reach.
You’ll be able to earn bonuses for reaching level 60, marks for all of the reputations that have been added to the game, and rewards for engaging in R&D and specializations.
Existing Temporal Agents will be able to complete these new goals as well, and if you’ve already finished them, you can claim the rewards immediately.
Remember, to become a Temporal Agent and gain access to the rewards, you must make a new TOS Starfleet character, during the event, then you must play the tutorial until you receive your special Temporal Agent transceiver device.

2023.06.08 07:55 siplgeogrid 5 Surprising Uses for Blue Warning Tape You Haven't Tried Yet

5 Surprising Uses for Blue Warning Tape You Haven't Tried Yet
Warning tape in the colour blue may look like a straightforward instrument, but it actually has a surprising number of applications. There are a variety of creative applications for this tape in the home and the business, including organising your workstation and marking off potentially dangerous places. Here are five suggestions to get you going in the right direction.


https://preview.redd.it/vps32iowgq4b1.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=a93b3ce85291e710db7f127bd919456e2ced5fbb

Creating social distance by delineating certain locations.

As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, social isolation has evolved into an essential component of our day-to-day life. In order to ensure that individuals keep a safe distance from one another while in public places like grocery store checkout lines or waiting areas, blue warning tape can be used to mark off certain specific locations. By doing so, we can assist stop the virus from spreading and ensure that everyone stays well.

Putting labels on the boxes and containers used for storage.

Labelling storage bins and containers in your house or place of business with blue warning tape is another use for this versatile tape. Mark the contents of the package or receptacle on a snippet of tape that you have already cut off and written on with a marker. This makes it possible to immediately determine what is contained within each box or container without having to initially open each one. In addition to this, the vivid blue colour helps it to stand out and be easily located.

Putting up temporary lines in order to better control parking or crowds.

The creation of temporary lines for parking or crowd management is yet another unexpected application for blue warning tape. If you need to mark parking places or are having an event, blue warning tape is a solution that can be implemented quickly and easily in either situation. Creating distinct boundaries and showing people the way they should go can be accomplished by merely laying down strips of tape. When you are through, the tape may be removed without leaving any sort of residue behind, and this can be done quite easily.

Tying down any unsecured cords or cables.

You may also use the blue warning tape to secure any loose cords or cables that you have in your house or place of business. Just wrap the tape around the cords and cables, making sure to hide any wires or plugs that are exposed. This not only helps to reduce the risk of tripping, but it also maintains a neat and orderly arrangement of the wires and cables. In addition, the blue colour of the tape makes it simple to recognise and steer clear of.

Identifying specific locations that require cleaning or repair.

One further unexpected application for blue caution tape is to denote locations that are in need of cleaning or repair. Simply place the tape around an area that requires care, such as a spill that has occurred on the floor or a piece of equipment that has become damaged. This notifies those around you of the problem, which increases the likelihood that it will be resolved quickly. In addition to this, the issue location may be quickly located and pinpointed because to the brilliant blue colour of the tape.

Tactical Gear

We're turning Tactical Gear into essential items by bestowing them a new purpose, enhancing their significance beyond consumable options. Experience the game in a multitude of ways with this update, whether playing individually or as part of a team. From beginners to veterans, the renewed Tactical Gear can foster a sense of achievement among all players by enabling them to contribute to the success of their squad.

※ This update applies to only Normal Matches, Intense Battle Royale mode, and Custom Matches (Normal Match, Intense Battle Royale).
  • Players will be equipped with a Tactical Gear Carrier in their Inventory at the start of each match.
    • To ensure the Carrier does not hinder initial game progress after landing, we've set the Tactical Gear Carrier weight to 0.
  • Open the Carrier to select your desired Tactical Gear from all available options - EMT Gear, Tactical Pack, Spotter Scope, Drone, Blue Chip Detector, or the Repair Kit.
    • The Carrier cannot be opened when you're in a vehicle or on top of static transport features such as trains and ships.
  • The selected Tactical Gear will be fitted into a dedicated sixth slot reserved for Tactical Gear.
  • Once equipped, the Tactical Gear cannot be removed.
  • Tactical Gear nor the Carrier will not be dropped when a player dies.
    • Upon a player's death the Tactical GeaTactical Gear Carrier are removed.
  • Players recalled to the match will not be provided a new Tactical Gear Carrier.
  • All world-spawned Tactical Gear has been removed.
  • Radio Message
    • Can be used to relay information about the selected Tactical Gear of team members.
    • Upon equipping a Tactical Gear, a Radio Message is triggered for notification.
      • "Equipping (Tactical Gear)".
  • Training Mode
    • Players can remove Tactical Gear from their sixth Inventory slot in Training Mode only to allow for more diverse practice.
    • Both Tactical Gear and the Tactical Gear Carrier are provided via the Training Helper.
We also strive to maintain the fundamental system of Tactical Gear while rebalancing their overall stats this update as Tactical Gear have changed to a basic, required item for all:

EMT Gear

To primarily serve the purpose of team healing rather than self-healing, the healing feature will only apply to team members. Additionally, to balance the overly beneficial healing effects when using heal items, the usage time of heal items has been adjusted to the following:
  • Med Kit usage time: 3 seconds → 7 seconds.
  • First Aid Kit usage time: 3 seconds → 5 seconds.
  • In addition, the revival speed of teammates has been changed from 3 seconds → 8 seconds to prevent overly quick recoveries in tense scenarios.
  • Using Energy Drinks or Painkillers will now provide a 50% additional effect.
    • This boost will only be for personal use and does not apply to teammates.

Tactical Pack

  • Attachment slots decreased from 4 slots → 2 slots.
  • We wish to give the Tactical Pack a similar feel to a Level 4 Backpack. Therefore, the reduction of slots is aimed at moderating the possession of individual items such as firearms (excluding stackable items).

Spotter Scope

Improved for more straightforward and less time-consuming use.
  • Its magnification capabilities are now adjustable from 4x to 8x, allowing for more detailed observations.
  • The creation of the white passive marker is removed. The red active marker will be automatically created and maintained for 7 seconds after a scan.
  • The standard Screen Pings can also be placed while using the Spotter Scope.

Drone

  • Maximum range has been reduced from 300m → 200m.

Blue Chip Detector

The Blue Chip Detector has been perceived as an overperforming gear. Therefore, it has been decided to receive several adjustments to harmonize it with other Tactical Gear.
  • Screen update frequency: 5 seconds → 8 seconds.
  • Enemy scan radius: 100m → 50m.
  • Players who are equipped with a Jammer Pack are undetectable with the Blue Chip Detector.
< Dev Comment >
Following the initial introduction of Tactical Gear, we have observed their considerable utility in gameplay. However, we also understand the magnitude of the decision players are faced with in sacrificing a primary weapon slot for Tactical Gear, particularly in battle scenarios where mid-to-long range combat is crucial. As such, with the renewal of the Tactical Gear system, we eagerly anticipate witnessing our players' varied gameplay strategies!
For example, for solo play, we look forward to see players utilizing a strategy centered around their chosen Tactical Gear, which you'd select to complement your primary weapon. You may opt for a slow-burn approach with the EMT Gear, spending more time looting and gradually entering the Safe Zone. The Drone and Blue Chip Detector can help with a strategy that involves quick penetration of the center area, swiftly identifying incoming enemies. And the Tactical Pack could suit those favoring weapons with high ammo consumption. As for the Spotter Scope, it may be ideal for players selecting weapons aimed at precise long-distance engagement.
As for team play, we anticipate strategic looting that aligns with team dynamics while avoiding overlapping roles. Each teammate would have a distinct role, contributing effectively to the team's primary goal. Utilize the Drone and Spotter Scope for ordering and coordination. Or the Spotter Scope could enhance accuracy for those sharpshooters. The EMT Gear and Tactical Pack may also be helpful to novice players, so they could actively contribute to team survival, or even the Blue Chip Detector for optimal information delivery.
With this change, we are also committed to implementing constraints that are proportional to in-game performance - we do not aim to unfairly boost the abilities of already-skilled players. With this in mind, we've made it so that once a Tactical Gear is selected, it becomes irreplaceable. Players are required to use their chosen equipment consistently throughout the match. We have also proceeded with an overall balance update.

Items

Tactical Gear - Repair Kit

The current Helmet/Armor Repair Kits and Mechanic's Toolbox seemed to have limited applications in specific circumstances - therefore, we're merging them into a single versatile Repair Kit that can repair Helmets, Vests, and vehicles. With this multipurpose tool, you can now consider the possibility of pursuing the role of your team's go-to mechanic.

※ This update applies to only Normal Matches, Intense Battle Royale mode, and Custom Matches (Normal Match, Intense Battle Royale).
  • The Repair Kit is no longer a consumable, and is now a part of Tactical Gear that can be equipped to your Tactical Gear slot.
    • Once equipped, it cannot be replaced or removed until the match concludes.
  • The Repair Kit can be utilized up to 10 times.
  • You can use the Repair Kit via the Limited Interact key.
  • A single use on a Helmet or Vestwill restore its durability to 100 in 6 seconds.
    • You can repair not just your own Helmet/Vest, but those equipped by your teammates or those found lying on the floor.
  • A single use on a vehicle restores 500 durability in 8 seconds.
    • You are only able to repair a vehicle that can be interacted with.
  • The repair process will be canceled under the following circumstances:
    • If the character carrying out the repair, or the subject undergoing the repair, moves using the movement keys.
    • Once the preceding repair of the same Helmet/Vest/vehicle is complete.
    • If another player picks up the Helmet/Vest from the ground during the repair.
  • New feature: Removing and installing tires
    • When the Repair Kit is equipped, you can use the Limited Interact Key to remove tires from any vehicle.
      • Tires that have burst with 0 durability cannot be removed.
      • Interacting with a vehicle will display the remaining durability of the tire.
    • Removing a tire requires a certain amount of time.
    • Successful removal causes the tire to drop to the ground.
      • Tires weigh 20 each.
      • Tires will go to your Inventory's fourth melee weapon slot.
      • You cannot remove or install tires to the BRDM, Boat, Aquarail, Mountain Bike, Motor Glider, Airboat, or Snowmobile.
    • Any player can install removed tires on a vehicle, even without a Repair Kit.
      • Upon approaching a vehicle without a tire, tire installation requires a certain amount of time.
    • The removal/installation process will be canceled under the following circumstances:
      • If the vehicle is driven during the installation process.
      • If the position of the vehicle changes due to a collision or other during the installation process.
      • If another tire on the vehicle during tire removal receives damage.
  • The existing Helmet/Armor Repair Kits and Mechanic's Toolbox have been removed

Emergency Pickup, BZ Grenade, Jammer Pack, Mortar, and Panzerfaust
  • Will now world spawn in all 8x8 maps.
  • This applies to Normal, Ranked, and Custom Matches (including Esports mode).
  • The spawn rate of the Emergency Pickup in both Normal Match and Ranked on Erangel and Miramar maps has been reduced by 30%.

World - Vikendi

After the Vikendi Reborn update last year, we've diligently monitored player trends and incorporated your valuable feedback into the latest update.

Terrain

  • We have tactically upgraded those locations - excluding major cities - that, according to live data, have proven to be the most unfeasible for engagement or where cover was particularly scarce by adding new objects and ridgelines, offering more opportunities for strategic cover.
https://preview.redd.it/sdivq8e8gq4b1.png?width=1920&format=png&auto=webp&s=3ea91777da3eb8d64cdbf6ee52d18cbd753535b5

Phase

  • The initiative Blue Zone ruleset similar as Ranked's for Normal Matches introduced back in Update #23.1 has been applied to Vikendi, effectively reducing the overall playtime.

Item spawn

  • Vikendi's Normal Matches typically feature an array of special item spawn spots, leading to an excess of high-value items. To prevent disproportionate looting of these items, we've recalibrated the balance. The spawn rates of high-value weapons and items have been scaled down to also mitigate the disparity in the play experience with Ranked matches.
  • Lab Camp
    • The probability of finding lucky Supply Drops (holding Care Package weapons) have been boosted.
      • However, a marginal downgrade has been made in the quality of items.
      • A significant reduction has been made in the appearance rate of Care Package weapons and Level 3 equipment.
    • Critical Response Kits will now exclusively appear in Lab Camps, with an increased spawn rate.
  • Caves
    • The quantity and quality of items discoverable in caves' Supply Drops have been downgraded.
      • A significant reduction has been made in the appearance rate of Care Package weapons and Level 3 equipment.
      • 8x Scopes, Critical Response Kits, and C4 have been removed from caves' Supply Drops.
  • Secret Room
    • Acquisition of the Self-AED is now restricted to Secret Rooms, except for the rare chance of looting it as a world spawn item.
  • The Thermal 4x Scope will now only be available as a world spawn item, in Care Packages, and caves' Supply Drops. It has been removed from Lab Camp and Secret Rooms.
  • The following changes have also been made to align with the ruleset of other maps.
    • ARs, SMGs, Handguns, Crossbows, Grenades, Smoke Grenades, Stun Grenades, and First Aid Kits will spawn slightly more.
    • SRs, LMGs, Backpack (Level 1), Molotovs, BZ Grenades, C4, Emergency Pickups, Bandages, Med Kits, and Adrenaline Syringes will spawn slightly less.

Vehicle spawn

  • In terms of transportation, we noted that vehicle usage in Vikendi was lower compared to other maps, so we've amplified vehicle spawn spots and appropriately adjusted existing spawn locations.

Blizzard Zone

  • The duration of the Blizzard Zone has been increased by approximately 70%.
  • The number of snowstorms appearing in a Blizzard Zone has increased.
  • The distance between snowstorms has decreased.
  • The phases when Blizzard Zones occur during a match have been adjusted.

Cable Car

  • Player feedback concerning the rather sluggish speed of Vikendi's Cable Cars was noted, leading to a significant speed enhancement. This adjustment now allows for better encounters during transit, with an overall speed increase of 80%.

Comeback BR

  • Map
    • We have improved player's vulnerability by relocating existing objects to the back.
    • Item spawn spots have been added near player spawn locations for an optimized start.
    • Made containers more accessible by repositioning some containers and adding wooden pallets.
  • Combat time
    • Reduced combat time from 160 seconds to 100 seconds.
    • The Play Area restriction time has been adjusted to accommodate the reduced combat time.
  • The multidrops will descend earlier.
  • To prevent the decreasing survival rate as the number of participants increases during the later phases of Comeback BR, each size of the final Play Area for each phase has been adjusted.
  • The UI notifications for Comeback BR have improved.

Crowbar Interaction

  • Increased spawn rate for cabinets.
  • A storage unit specifically designed for Crowbars has been added to garages that are accessible with a Crowbar. This storage unit has a high probability of containing a Crowbar.
  • Simultaneously, we've slightly diminished the appearance rate for Secret Room Security Keys.
    • However, we've increased the spawn rates for items such as healing items and throwables.

Sound

  • Reduced the volume of wind turbines by 40%, along with the audible range.

Minimap

  • Minimap has been updated to mirror the above changes.

Ranked - Season 24


  • The Jammer Pack, Mortar, Panzerfaust, BZ Grenade, and Emergency Pickup have been added to every map.
  • Vikendi has been added to the map pool with a 10% matchmaking probability.
    • Number of players: 64
    • Weather: Sunny

2023.06.08 07:40 munchkinbumpkin Why mescaline?

Mescaline seems very difficult to source and it also seems difficult to grow what sources there are. I see pictures of what looks to be a large amount of cactus and then go into the comments and see that it does not contain enough mescaline for an actual trip.
Meanwhile, mushrooms fruit within days of substrate colonization and give a high yield of the active ingredient (enough, depending on the size of the box they are stored in, to give a single person a number of trips).
And while I'm not trying to be disparaging (I would love to try mescaline at some point) it just seems like a lot of work and time for a small amount of mescaline.
Are the difficulties in getting mescaline worth it? Am I mistaken about the amount of work that goes into it?

2023.06.08 07:28 Drakolf The Fallen Star- 2: Healing

My name is Adaraka Voska, I am a Kutrali Shipwright.
These details were no longer really relevant to my current existence, considering even if my escape pod hadn't been blown to smithereens, I wasn't going to get off this planet.
I knew the telltale sign of what the Humans call a 'double tap'. Tuktuk voka.
Even though one of their own had shot me just as I launched the pod, they had clearly taken the effort to look for me, find my escape pod, and blow it to pieces. The Human who had saved me, a native of this planet, simply cried out, "What happened fallen star!?"
Even panicking, his Kutraal was getting better.
I decided to tell some blunt and honest truth. "An enemy of mine destroyed it, they believe I am dead now." This of course greatly concerned him, but in a way it was a relief. Still, I wandered the crater, looking for anything that could reasonably be salvaged. Unfortunately, anything and everything of value was gone, and I was reliant on iron age medicine to get me back on my feet.
The ride back was as unpleasant as the ride to the crash site, having to lie on my front wasn't doing me any favors. Still, I was biologically predisposed to survive at any cost, even if it killed me.
Since I was stuck here, I asked the Human his name. He looked surprised. "I already told you." He said. "My name is Kallan."
Oh, that made sense. "I thought you simply used a local word for mage." I replied. "Apologies."
I hated using formal Kutraal.
"Alright." I said after he scraped off the herbs. "Kallan, what I am about to tell you is extremely important. Without the autodoc to heal me, I'm going to need your help."
"Anything, Kataran." His use of the word for 'honored person' caught me off guard, that was going to make things worse for me.
"My name is Adaraka Voska." I said. "Before I landed, my enemy had struck me with a weapon that left behind something inside of my body. It's the reason why, even with all of your efforts, my healing is slowed."
"Who could create such a weapon?" He asked, horrified.
I bit back the retort of, 'Humans'. That wasn't going to go over well. "A people who want my kind to die." I said. "A people who believe I am dead, and will continue to believe I am dead." I took a deep breath. "Do you know of surgery?"
He shook his head. "I am not familiar with that word."
"Alright. The basic concept is that you, uh, you cut a person open to remove or heal something that is making the body ill." He looked horrified. "The fact of the matter is, unless this weapon is removed, I am going to die in two weeks."
He walked away, biting his trembling hand, he barely even knew me, and he was already mourning me. "W-what can be done?" He asked.
"Are you familiar with a clear liquid that burns when imbibed, or when put on a wound?" I asked.
"I am not." He replied, shaking his head.
"Beverages that cause drunkenness, inebriation, intoxication, or slurred speech, unstable walking, vomiting, anything like that?"
"Ah, yes. That has been outlawed by our lord."
Well, there goes my best disinfectant.
"Alright." I said. "I have very clear instructions for you. Are you at all familiar with a black glass, commonly found near-" Was volcanic a word in our lexicon at the planet's seeding? "-volcanic mountains." I finished after a brief pause.
"Yes." He said. "There are hostile beings who live in the swamplands who use such a material."
Hostile creatures? Well, they were likely my best best bet for getting obsidian any time soon.
"Alright. We can probably work with that." I said. "We're going to need some. Next, are you familiar with various kinds of mold?"
"I know many ways to kill mold, yes." He replied. That likely meant no antibiotics.
"Do you at least have salt?" I asked.
"Oh, yes. Salt is very useful for treating wounds."
Great.
"You're going to have to do something known as surgery." I said. "With the obsidian, we will need to make a cutting implement, this implement will allow for a clean cut, but the blade will be fragile, so care must be taken."
He nodded. "If it will save your life, I will do this." He said.
"Next. We're going to need to need a substance called soap. Please tell me you have soap."
"I am not familiar with that word."
"That's fine." I said. It was not fine, none of this was fine. "We're going to need fat from meat, wood ash, and water. This will create a substance that will allow your hands to be clean enough to go rooting around in my guts."
He looked nauseated at my description. "Please do not tell me you have an aversion to eating meat."
"No, no." He said. "Fat will make this substance?"
"Yes, and wood ash. I'd explain why, but you wouldn't understand." I replied. "If you have any means of collecting rain water, we're going to need it, we can make one component of soap immediately."
"I have barrels of rain water." He said. "Though, I do have to boil it before drinking it."
I smiled. "Excellent. Get a pot full of water boiling, we're going to make lye."
Sodium hydroxide, or lye, as a chemical, has fairly limited uses, but they can be very important. Soap making was an essential use, and some foods required lye for consumption, but overall, lye as a chemical is extremely caustic, and without rubber to act as a protective layer, we were going to do this stupidly and dangerously, because we had no other option.
Thankfully, Kallan actually kept his wood fire ashes, so all we needed to do was boil the water with the wood ash inside of it and skim the lye off the top once it rendered. Kallan was- thankfully- competent and was able to gather the lye without burning himself with it, as per my warning.
As for the fat, well, Kallan did have salted and smoked meats, all stored in an underground cellar that was- by my estimation, equivalent to zero Caen. Cold enough for refrigeration, at the very least, with some insulation, it could even reach -18C.
For now, as Kallan cut strips of meat off a haunch of an unidentified animal, I wondered if the salt content of the fat would harm our chances of making soap.
By the time we were done for the day, the cauldron he used to render the lye for us thoroughly scrubbed and rinsed, we had a meat stew and the cut off fat was being rendered in a pot.
"The weapon that is lodged inside of you." Kallan spoke softly. "What is it, what does it do to you?"
"It's called a bullet." I stated. "The piece that is lodged inside of me contains a metal known as depleted uranium." Of course, he didn't know what that meant. "It has a poison in it that will slowly kill me, it's used against my kind because we otherwise heal too fast to kill."
"How fast do you heal?" He asked.
"With the right medicine, almost instantly." I replied. "Without that medicine, slightly faster than your kind. Unfortunately, we do not have the means to make that medicine."
We ate, and then he changed my bandages.
I laid on the bed he provided me, staring at the ceiling, thinking about everything I've been through in just the past few days alone.

Phish, Friday 06/08/2012 (11 years ago) DCU Center, Worcester, MA, USA
Gap Chart, Tour: 2012 Early Summer Tour
Set 1 : Free , Kill Devil Falls , Roses Are Free > Theme From the Bottom > Axilla > Julius , Bouncing Around the Room , Maze , Bathtub Gin
Set 2 : Down with Disease 1 > Sand -> Nellie Kane , Mike's Song > Makisupa Policeman 2 > Weekapaug Groove , Wading in the Velvet Sea , Also Sprach Zarathustra , Character Zero
Encore : The Oh Kee Pa Ceremony > Suzy Greenberg
1 Unfinished. 2 Keyword was "Sour Diesel."
Jamchart Notes:
Roses Are Free - A very nice melodic jam that turns dark develops as "Roses" proper is winding down.
Julius - Proving again that less is more (at least for "Julius"), Trey's nimble, amped-down playing provides interesting texture, and creates better suspension awaiting the inevitable re-build.
Bathtub Gin - In a bit of a nod to the old, pre-August '93 days, the jam begins with decelerating tempo and downward sloping melodies. At 7:30, the jam shifts into the more familiar, uptempo "modern" "Gin" jam. Cool version. Check out 11/16/91 if you doubt.
Also Sprach Zarathustra - Stellar 3.0 version. Trey's delicate soloing is inspired and fresh and Page fills in all the right gaps. Simply gorgeous.
Show Notes:
Mike teased Sundown in Bathtub Gin. Down with Disease was unfinished. Makisupa's keyword was "Sour Diesel." 2001 contained Sand teases from Fish and Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine and Mike's Song teases from Trey.

Phish, Wednesday 06/08/2011 (12 years ago) Darien Lake, Darien Center, NY, USA
Gap Chart, Tour: 2011 Early Summer Tour
Set 1 : Nellie Kane , Mellow Mood , Buffalo Bill , Kill Devil Falls , Wolfman's Brother , Rift , Undermind , Ride Captain Ride , It's Ice > Dog Faced Boy , Brian and Robert > 46 Days , Limb By Limb , Character Zero
Set 2 : Golden Age > Mike's Song > Fast Enough for You > Weekapaug Groove , What's the Use? > Theme From the Bottom > Backwards Down the Number Line > Also Sprach Zarathustra > Harry Hood
Encore : Good Times Bad Times
Jamchart Notes:
Weekapaug Groove - "Golden Age" teases are followed by a nice funky breakdown jam with great Page and Mike. At the end, Trey sustains a note which carries into "What's The Use."
Also Sprach Zarathustra - "Golden Age," "Happy Birthday," and "WTU?" teases worked in perfectly, along with a serious syncopated throwdown, make this one a must hear. Play this to impress others.
Harry Hood - A very solid jam, building from start to end, and thus in good company with 5/6/90, 11/30/95, 2/18/97, 8/8/98, and 11/27/09.
Show Notes:
Weekapaug contained Golden Age teases. Also Sprach Zarathustra contained Golden Age, Happy Birthday and What's the Use? teases. In the soundcheck (which was played on Kevin Shapiro's From the Archives #15(b) show on 7/1/11 from SBIX ), Funky Bitch contained alternate lyrics, Dream On contained a brief Stairway to Heaven tease and "Old Zealand" alternate lyrics, and The Pendulum had Two Princes quotes.

Phish, Thursday 06/08/1995 (28 years ago) The Delta Center, Salt Lake City, UT, USA
Gap Chart, Tour: 1995 Summer Tour

Set 2 : Simple > Rift > Free > Bouncing Around the Room > Tweezer -> Lifeboy > Poor Heart > Julius
Encore : Good Times Bad Times
1 No whistling. 2 Debut.
Jamchart Notes:
Runaway Jim - After some "Third Stone From The Sun" (Hendrix) teases from Trey, this one gets out beyond the norm.
Prince Caspian - Debut includes a short instrumental bridge. The ending jam section and closing chords were added in 1996.
Tweezer - Another wacky "type II" version that is worth hearing if you're an aficionado of Phish improv.
Show Notes:
Runaway Jim contained Third Stone from the Sun teases. Reba did not have the whistling ending. This show marked the debut of Prince Caspian. Page teased The Sabre Dance in Tweezer. This gig was originally scheduled for the outdoor Wolf Mountain Amphitheatre in Park City; due to a late spring snowstorm, the day before the show took place it was moved to the indoor Delta Center.
