2023.06.08 09:29 -Vance- Making my first computer - Wouldn't say no to opinions/ tips/ help

As the title says, I'm making my first PC.
A year ago I got into game design, however while trying to swap my project over to unreal from unity, I have realised my current (very old) computer just won't cut it anymore! I have already bought two pieces of hardware, but have finally saved up enough to buy the rest, and would love some help/ input if possible. Please feel free to critique and offer opinions on my build choice as I know next to nothing about PC parts, brands etc other than what I have researched!

2023.06.08 09:28 Excellent-Basket-825 Product Managers around the Australian (& East Asian) Timezone AEST, how do you learn?

I had a few mentees from the Australian and Pacific time zones tell me all the time that they can't attend Reforge or other similar courses (cohorts, virtual 1:1) due to timezone problems. Also getting messages like this in the pic whenever I launch any course. (I'm in Central Europe).
How... widespread is this problem for you? I have to admit that I'm completely ignorant of the Australian Product community. I do remember that these markets usually have interesting "oddities" like the frustrating situation with the import of anything tech. But in regards to learning:
  1. Is there an optimal time for you to learn due to these conditions?
  2. How do you deal with that if you have popular courses or events?
  3. How do you deal with product conferences? What are the big events in your area?
  4. Who is doing it "right" for your community?
  5. Is there some kind of difference for you in general whether stuff is on the weekend or workdays?
Can someone give me some kind of overview on how this all is different from the European or US scene?
I'm considering launching my stuff as a test in the very early morning for me (6 hours behind) which would probably mean that it lands for this timezone around early afternoon. That would essentially lock out everyone from the US, so I'm a bit hesitant and would love to check with you all beforehand.
Any feedback or pointers are highly appreciated 💪

The Material of The Labeled Object
1, When labeling the labeled object with low surface energy absorption (PE, PP), the initial stickiness of the label is very important, and the play of stickiness needs a relatively long period.
2, Does the labeled object contain large amounts of plasticizer inside or on its surface?
The plasticizer will react with the hot melt glue and cause the glue to fail.Requirements for Label Materials in The EnvironmentLabel of film material:
1, suitable for the environment requiring contact with water and high humidity;
2, according to different materials, the film has different levels of tensile ability
Labels made of paper:
1, relatively poor moisture resistance, suitable for the relatively dry environment;
  1. Poor tensile abilityThe glazing process can improve the protection of ink, scratch, and moisture resistance to a certain extent;The coating process can improve the protection against ink, scratch, and chemical corrosion.

2023.06.08 09:28 Shanianah How do I become more comfortable with myself?

I used to have a fp but after years I saw they weren’t really very nice to me so I no longer have one. I haven’t made many friends since and I feel sickly alone. I have a few people I talk to online but what I really want is a partner. I can spend time by myself and I prefer to be by myself, multiple people in one room is too much sometimes but it gets difficult when there’s no one to talk to online. I wonder if I feel like this because I really don’t go out with people and have friends like others or if I just need to work on myself (always gota work on yourself) and become more content. I’m sorry I am very bad at communicating and writing. Some advise or experiences would be appreciated 💗

2023.06.08 09:28 sleepybidoof_ Gagging and feeling nauseous / being sick?

Hello all! For some time I’ve been having seemingly random bouts of gagging and feeling sick, sometimes being sick. These kinds of problems have been around since I was a kid (25 now) and doctors seem to not know why although I’m certain its my Aspergers, I tend to gag if I experience certain smells and sights and sometimes throw up because of it. I’ve only been diagnosed for 2 years and my partner brought up that it could be my Aspergers which I never thought of. I’m glad I’ve found some kind of explanation as almost every day I am sick because of this.
I was wondering if anyone else experiences anything like this? And if anything helps? If i know it’s going to be bad I take over the counter travel sickness pills and they work to an extent but don’t help with the gag reflex.

2023.06.08 09:28 New-Kaleidoscope-722 Finally getting this off my chest

Literally I can’t stop pulling my hair out, I have very fine hair so it’s so easy! And I feel so satisfied when I pull the coarse, split ones.
I don’t care where I am, who I’m with. If I feel the urge to pull. I’ll pull. I started doing this when I was about 12/13 so I got my hair coloured for the first time and I got a lot of split ends.
I get regular haircuts in the hopes those coarse, split hairs will go away. But it never works. Although my hair is fine, I have a lot of it so do not have bald spots as of yet, however last year I saw my first grey hair (I’m 22 btw) and I am now concerned it’s cause of the pulling.
Also I see my hair everywhere and it annoys me so much! It sheds like an mf which I also don’t know if it’s to do with the pulling.
What have you tried to do to stop/any success stories? I’ve tried tying my hair up/wearing headbands and distracting myself but I still can’t resist :(

2023.06.08 09:27 Top_Service_9967 Self assessment tax return question

Hi all
Apologies if this post is not allowed, I’m in the process of completing a self assessment tax return and wanting to claim back some allowable expenses. I’ve had a look online and can’t work out if the below claims would be acceptable, I also don’t work for an accountancy firm so no one I can go to for advice at work
Purchase of office chair in August 2022
Purchase of monitor in 2020 (a portion of this was claimed back from my employer)
Purchase of iPad (work use only) on hp agreement - am I able to claim the full cost or do I have to apportion this and claim only for the repayments made
This is my first time completing a return and I’ve never claimed back personal expenses in the last 4 years (which I believe is the allowable time period for claims)
Any advice would be much appreciated 😊

2023.06.08 09:27 Broadway_Baller How good can the 2018 Draft class be?

After looking at the draft class, I feel like the 2018 class is the 2nd best in the last 10 years and arguably the best. There’s always Top Heavy classes, but 2018 is deep.
I think there’s 9 potential/current All-Stars in the class, which would tie 2003 for most in the last 20 years. 1996 had 10 all-stars, and there were years before that with more but just looking at the last 30 years here.
Here are the notable players:
1st overall: DeAndre Ayton. Solid player, suns fans might be upset with his progression and the players they passed up to get him, but he is a solid piece with good potential, could def sneak into 1 ASV
3rd: Luka Doncic, already one of the best players of his generation, multiple All NBA apperances
4th: Jaren Jackson Jr, DPOY and current all star
5th: Trae Young, already All-NBA player
10: Mikal Bridges. All-Star potential, his durability will also create longevity and career numbers will pile up
11: SGA, All-NBA talent already
14: MPJ, limited potential w Jokic and Murray being 1/2 options, but a guy I can see sneak into the ASG when he is a first option on another team
24: Any Simmons, break out year 2022 followed it up in 2023 w a better year, could be the next CJ McCollum
33: Jalen Brunson, will be King of NY if he keeps balling at this level
The Top 9 in this class are pretty solid, but it goes deeper. Other names of players who are solid and have potential
Miles Bridges, Donte Divencenzo, Robert Williams, Omari Spellman (jk), Devonte Graham, Mitchell Robinson, Gary Trent, Jarred Vanderbilt, Bruce Brown, Deanthony Melton.
I know guys fade off and don’t reach potential or get hurt but it does feel like there’s 20 solid players in the 2018 draft class. It feels deep and top heavy, there was some solid draft classes from 2009/2010/2011 era with super high level talent, but I think 2018 can be thrown into that mix.
I don’t think it’s an 2003 or 1996 or 1984 but it’s not too far off from pushing top 5 in the last 40 years. Time will tell

2023.06.08 09:27 Gold_Arachnid221 Childhood trauma

I’ll just start off with this is the first time iv talked about any of this with strangers. I 27 female I guess wasn’t given a good life from the day I was born . Bio mom was in the mental hospital and grandparents just called the cousin to take me . For a year or two I was tossed back and forth. Bio mom tried smothering me she abandoned me and family finding me multiple times left alone for days still in my car seat cover in feces and bleeding rashes . Well my cousin decided to adopt me. Yay right I was young enough I should have never known the truth. Well it turned out she adopted me for the money and later on given to her husband for a wedding gift. From around 2 or 3 till I was a preteen around 9 or 10 years he raped me . At first I was told it was a secret game for daddy’s and daughters. And then I started to refuse. He would beat me, hold guns or knifes to my throat or anywhere on me . Threaten to kill my younger siblings and mom. He even let his friends have fun with me and carve me up . I finally told and he went to prison. My mom changed that day from loving me to hating me for destroying her family . She would call me wh*** and sl** and taught my younger siblings to do the same . I was raised anyone of them could beat me but I better not raise my hand . It was my job to do. All house work while she drank away . By the time I was 14 I was kicked out over 100 times . I would call cps the teachers the bus drivers random people but some how they never listened . Cps failed me . By the time I was 16 I started fight back but then beat me harder. she took me out of school after I turned 16 . I was raised to be a good house wife with no freedom I wasn’t and still struggling to learn how to drive and I hate it . She finally kicked me out at 18 and I thought I was free. Until she got sick and at that age all I saw was omg my moms sick and my younger siblings need me .I thought she couldn’t hurt me now she’s to week. So since I was raised to take care of everybody else I did just that. I got my first job with a family member but when I started working to much she kicked me out again and dropped the biggest bomb she’ll ever. She adopted me only for the money and for a wedding gift for her husband. I destroyed her family and that she wishes he would have just sold me like she wanted. I left devastated. She harassed me until she died a few weeks later. I was so torn up . Do I hate her do I love her. Did she ever love me . Was she lieing or being truthful? I’ll never know . After she died my family decided I was to get married and got rid of me . I was so deep in depression I did what they all said my body went on auto pilot it knew listening would keep me safe. My ex husband refused to let me work and messed up paper work so I still can’t get a job . Refused to teach me how to drive or even help me. He wanted a perfect house wife . I left him the only plus . My depression broke I guess you could say and I got away I’m still struggling to divorce him and trying to get it to where I can drive and get a job . But i don’t know what to do most days . I’m so lost. It was drilled into me my job was to take care of everyone else but myself . One night it was a bad bad hurricane I made myself food before everyone else . She locked me outside and told me I better find somewhere to go and hold on . She didn’t let me back in the house until the next day . Another time I used some money I earned to get me some shampoo . She beat me bad that day and gave it away. But if u met her off the street she was the kindest person to you and would pretend she had a heart of gold but to me she was a demon and I thought for the longest time it was normal I deserved it . I still struggle with it . I don’t do therapy or anything I can’t afford it . I feel worthless most days . I remember having such big dreams and she crushed them . I feel as if I’m a waste of a person . I have anxiety and panic attacks like crazy . I have flash backs where it’s like im a kid again I can feel his skin smell his cologne I can smell the beer off my moms breath . My boyfriend has had to wake me up because I’ll be screaming and crying and just swinging away in my sleep . I can’t stand public places my mother raised us in a bar . She would broadcast what her husband did to me to get sympathy. Everyone knew what happened to me by him even if I never met them why because my mom wanted things from them free. She used what he did as a cash making story . It was horrible it’s hard to be in stores or anywhere alone I fight panic attack’s constantly it’s suffocating

2023.06.08 09:26 Helpful-Lunch-7121 AITA for driving through a roped off exit?

Would love opinions on this. I am a pizza delivery driver. Today the store was busy and I was on a run of three orders. My first order was to an apartment complex that is a maze. It is extremely confusing to navigate through. To make it worse most places to drive through were blocked of with ropes. Apparently they were redoing pavement. However, it was no longer wet or freshly done.
I drop my order off and try to leave. Problem is, every time I try to turn on to another part of the complex to leave it is roped off. I spend 10 minutes driving around in circles and finally find the exit. However, it is roped off too. When I say rope it’s more like very thin string. I have two other orders in the car and at this point I have lost my patience due to already having a stressful day so I drive through it. Wasn’t proud if it but I didn’t know what else to do. Also, other roped off spots around the complex had clearly been driven through too by other people. From what I could tell the only way I could have gotten out would have been to drive all the way back around to the entrance and exiting the entrance did not seem safe to me.
I get back to my store and apparently some lady called my manager and is pissed I drove through the roped off exit. He said she was very upset. (She knew where I worked because I had the delivery topper on my car with the store name on it.) My manager didn’t seem too bothered by it though and agreed that complex is a mess even without the roped off areas. However I’m worried he might tell my higher up boss about it when he comes in and I maybe get in trouble or written up or worse. I didn’t give it a second thought until I got back to the store and learned someone called to tell on me which made me question if that was the wrong move. What should I have done instead then. AITA for driving through the roped off exit?

2023.06.08 09:26 Odd-Sheepherder1527 I want to get therapy, but I’m scared

I want and NEED therapy. Like BAD. I kept putting it off for so long, but I think I’m ready now. But there’s some things stopping me.
I have an opportunity to get therapy, I’m grateful that I can since a lot of people cannot, yet still, therapy is such a turn off to me sometimes. The main reason is because, I DO NOT want to tell A RANDOM PERSON my trauma. The scary thing is that this person I barely know will know my secrets, my thoughts, my fears, the cringy shit I did when I was 11. like what if one day they just decide to say “fuck it, let’s throw them in a mental institution” (even though I’m sure I don’t have anything that serious going on). Or what if they see me succeed one day and tell my boss that I had an intrusive though if taking candy from a baby? What if my therapist secretly judges my actions?
Not only that, but the whole process of the first day of therapy is scary, because who knows how bad it could get? Or how good? If it’s bad, I probably most likely won’t talk to a therapist ever again If it’s good, I’ll be to overly reliant
Lastly, I’ve been using myself as a therapist. I will talk things out with myself until I get a conclusion. It was working out before, but now it’s getting so draining to spend an entire day, day after day, week after week, mont after month of me trying to convince myself of certain things. Being my own therapist feels so mentally draining and I’m starting to just feel so shitty(which is why I want to switch to an ACTUAL therapist)
Please convince me to get a therapist. Shares stories, if not about therapy, just ways that have helped you get better. Idk. Just wtf should I do?!

2023.06.08 09:26 OtaraMilclub the most logical conclusion is that we may be at the end of the long-running manipulation and set to rocket higher in silver prices. Let me present the facts and leave it to you to decide for yourself.

the most logical conclusion is that we may be at the end of the long-running manipulation and set to rocket higher in silver prices. Let me present the facts and leave it to you to decide for yourself.
A set of readily-verifiable facts have combined to point to a stunning conclusion, namely, that thanks largely to enough people doing the right thing, that the federal commodities regulator, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, may have also finally done the right thing when it comes to the decades-old COMEX silver price manipulation. If my assessment is correct, the most logical conclusion is that we may be at the end of the long-running manipulation and set to rocket higher in silver prices. Let me present the facts and leave it to you to decide for yourself.
A bit over two years ago, on March 5, 2021, I wrote an article in which I solicited public support in writing to the CFTC and to elected representatives concerning a letter I wrote to the agency about an issue I advanced for decades – the concentrated short position in COMEX silver futures (which I consistently maintained as a key to the manipulation). While there were many naysayers who countered that writing to the Commission was a waste of time, even more observers took the time to write in. Thanks to all who took the time to write in.
https://silverseek.com/article/time-act
Fortunately, I took my own advice and also wrote to my elected officials and lucked out when through my local congressman and an extremely-competent staffer who diligently-followed up with the agency, received, two months later, an official response that shocked me. After always arguing with every single point, I raised with the CFTC about the concentrated short position in COMEX silver futures, its response this time indicated that it had shared my concerns with two of its critical divisions, Enforcement and Market Oversight.
https://silverseek.com/article/cftcs-response
If you take the time to read all the references and facts contained in the above two articles, I’m sure you will conclude that I have presented the case objectively to this point. But what’s this business about mission accomplished and the end of the long-running COMEX silver manipulation being at hand? It has to do with another easily-verifiable set of facts since the date of the Commission’s response (May 3, 2021) – the unprecedented decline in the concentrated short position in COMEX silver futures to this time, particularly concerning the commercial-only component of what I always considered at the core of the manipulation.
Thinking back on it, I was always intrigued by the way the Commission concluded its response to me in May 2021, namely, informing me that it could not offer further comment on what it might or might not do regarding the information I provided. This was the farthest cry possible from how it always treated my past complaints about the excessively-large concentrated short position in COMEX silver futures. But how could I possibly know whether the Commission was sincere in its response or whether it was just blowing smoke to bury the matter at hand?
Then, it dawned on me – it wasn’t words that would indicate whether the Commission was sincere or not – it was its actions; specifically, what would the concentrated short position actually do following its response? At this point, the record is quite compelling that there may have been strong action associated with the Commission’s words.
From the high-point of 65,262 contracts (326 million oz) on Feb 2, 2021 for the 4 largest COMEX shorts (which prompted me to write and encourage others to do the same in the first place), the short position of the 4 largest shorts has fallen to 36,478 contracts (183 million oz) as of the most recent COT report (May 30), and when adjusted to reflect the commercial-only component of this position, the concentrated position is down around close to 27,500 contracts (138 million oz), down close to a stunning 60% from Feb 2, 2021.
As I’ve been reporting recently (to subscribers), for the first time ever, on the recent $6 silver price rally from early March to the beginning of May, the 4 big commercial shorts on the COMEX failed to increase their concentrated short position, as they always had in the past. I took this to strongly suggest that they would not do so on the next silver rally, whenever that rally commenced. Now, that I’ve had a chance to think about the Commission’s response of May 3, 2021 and measure that response against the actual record of the sharp reduction in the concentrated short position since then, I can’t help but see the connection even stronger and I feel more assured that the days of concentrated short selling containing silver prices may be behind us.
It now seems to me that back in April-May of 2021, as the Commission was preparing to respond to my letter of March 5, it not only concluded that I was correct about the concentrated short position in COMEX silver futures being responsible for manipulating prices, it then informed the big commercial shorts to, essentially, knock it off.
Realistically speaking, had the Commission simply ordered the then-big silver shorts to cover their short positions immediately, all heck would have ensued, sending prices to the heavens. It would also have demonstrated that the Commission was negligent for decades. Instead, the Commission, most likely, gave the big commercial shorts some time (say two years) to work down their concentrated short positions. Can I certify that such a time-sensitive directive was given to the big COMEX silver shorts two years ago? Of course not, as how could I possibly be privy to such a directive? But I’ll be darned, that in hindsight, if all the facts don’t fit better than the glove in OJ’s trial.
Then why the question mark on the mission being accomplished? Because despite everything I’ve alleged (or speculated about) to this point being as real as rain and easily verified by the actual record; whether we are actually at the end of the silver manipulation is dependent on whether the former big commercials shorts add aggressively to new short positions on the next silver price rally. If they do add aggressively to shorts, that would suggest I am incorrect in what I have just written. In that case, there should be ample time to adjust my thinking and positioning, because a decent rally would have already occurred. If they don’t add aggressively to such short positions, then that rally should prove epic and we won’t have to sit around and wonder any longer about the silver manipulation.
I can’t rule out the possibility of a continued selloff, perhaps a sharp one, in the immediate period ahead; but neither is such a selloff guaranteed. Should we get yet another deliberate price rig to the downside, that will only enhance the prospects for the coming eventual rally being one for the ages.

2023.06.08 09:26 Visual_Society3594 ugh i’m late

So… my bf and i made the very stupid decision to have unprotected sex for the first time ever over a month ago, it was literally a couple hours after my period ended. I took a plan B within 24 hours, ended up getting my period a week later for about 5 days. (my period twice in a month sucked btw). Well fast forward to now, i am now day 37 on my cycle aka, 6 days late. I’m not sure if plan B is proven to screw up schedules and all that but this sucks. and before you ask yes i’ve taken three tests within a couple days of each other, the most recent was yesterday, and they’ve all come out negative.
I know it is near impossible that i am pregnant but i need actual people to tell me that before i lose my head. I also know it was extremely dumb so hush about the “don’t have unprotected sex”, lol learned my lesson there.
Thank you!

Glitch? Villager catchphrase given to another villager with a different personality
Alright, so I have both Erik and Marshal on my island. I gave Erik the catchphrase “ehh heeh” because it sounds like a cute chuckle when spoken.
A long time passes, like, months since I’ve given Erik the catchphrase. I talk to Marshal one day, and this dude is suddenly saying “ehh heeh”. No more “sulky”. He straight up stole Eriks catchphrase.
I haven’t gotten the chance to check if Erik still has the “ehh heeh” catchphrase, or if they literally did just swap. I’ve restarted my switch and stuff like that, and it’s still the same.
Is this some weird feature I didn’t know about?? Or did I just get a really weird bug? Anyway I’m annoyed cause now I gotta wait the 500 years it takes for them to ask to change catchphrases to fix it again. : (I don’t time travel)
It’s pretty funny but yeah, tell me if I just didn’t know about this “feature”, or If it really is just a glitch.

2023.06.08 09:25 Smart-A22 Do you have trouble with your academics or keeping a job?

I know that boredom is a common issue with this disorder so I’m curious if sociopaths suffer with school and jobs since these activities usually start to feel monotonous after a period of time.
Do you feel like you struggle doing and completing daily tasks and responsibilities?

2023.06.08 09:25 Deep-Regular-2418 Talking Shit. What do you say to your GS?

I’m noticing that I have many catch phrases and behaviours to fight back. Also noise canceling headphones and loud music 16 hours per day. I’ve always been obsessed with music but didn’t realize the noise canceling difference. Below are some tactics I use
I have many more, I think we should always fight back and kick ass. I’m the dopest dude around with regard to career, hobbies, skill set and wholeness with myself and these people look discriminated when I behave in this manner and 9/10 will back off.
