2023.03.29 11:52 MochittoDeveloper Markdown2Anki: feedback, proposals and requests for new features

Hey there! I'm the developer behind Markdown2Anki, a script that allows you to make your cards using markdown files (for example, from Obsidian) and have a whole new Interface for your cards, without the need of any Add-on :)
You can check out the Original post, if you don't know the project.
The original post has been around two weeks since I shared the project and I'm working on adding new features, so I would like to ask you for your thoughts on them.
Would also love to have feedback on your experience with the program or features requests, if you have any :)
Thank you for your time and for the discussion; this way I can make a tool that satisfies people's needs and "fills in" what Anki is lacking right now.
You can find a recap of the questions at the end of the post!

The main new feature

The highest priority right now is adding the cards and images directly to your Anki collection, so that you don't have to import them manually.
This will allow you to specify some default decks (depending on the type of the card) to which cards are sent when the program runs.
Although the technical part of sending the cards is pretty simple, I have an idea on how to implement this: using optional metadata when defining a card, which I would like feedback on.
A card could look like this:
Deck: Coding exercises Type: type-in Tags: python, arrays, algorithms ## [Fill in the missing methods] Python # Write to the console "Hello world" {{C1::print}}("Hello world") 
There could be three different types: basic, cloze and type-in (or typein).
The program can already differentiate between basic and cloze, so you need to specify the Type only if it's type-in (a special kind of note type that uses the Fill the blanks addon, very useful for coding cards to build up muscle memory). This means that if you don't use type-in clozes, this change won't affect your use of the program.
There will also be default decks set in the configuration file, so you need to specify the Deck only if it's different from the one you've set there (for example, you usually use the program for coding cards but today you made a card on geography and want to send it to your geography deck).
Tags are the tags that are added to the card. I could potentially also make it so that tags are recognized when writing them in the body of the tabs (such as #myTag), but the metadata way could be better in Anki (even though I could give a special look to tags in tab bodies, such as a different background, to highlight them). I don't know if it would be of much use in Anki cards tho.
In many markdown editors or note taking apps you can make templates, so you could add the metadata of a specific deck with just a shortcut form your keyboard (thinking of Obsidian).
Questions regarding this new feature:
• Should there be the possibility of writing the tags in the tabs using #This_format?
• Is the metadata invasive/annoying or do you think it could work? Do you have other ideas?

A small fix

When you run the script, it checks for updates. Since it doesn't let you know of it, it might appear as if the app takes a while to start, while it's actually just checking if the package has been updated, so that it can let you know there is a new version available.
I will add a message with "Checking for updates..." so that this will be clear. The check should "fail" (and just presume you are using the latest version) after two seconds, so that at worst you have to wait a very little time before using the script.
I'm sorry for not adding this sooner.

Other features that I have in mind:

Defining multiple input files
Adding the possibility of specifying different input files in the configuration file, so that you could run the script using the name of the file. Example:
In the config:
input file n1: path/to/file/called/myGeographyCards.md input file n2: path/to/file/called/coding.md
When running the script:
md2anki myGeographyCards
Will use the input file number 1.
md2anki coding
Will use the input file number 2.
I think I could potentially add the possibility of specifying different "default" decks for each of these input files, even if I'm not sure how right now.
Allowing for Maths using Mathjax (and mhchem) or Latex
The styling would follow what Obsidian allows for, so you would be able to write $inline latex$ or $$latex block$$.
Anki supports either MathJax or Latex, with the latter requiring extra setup. If I implement it the way Anki does, meaning I just use Anki's engine to render the Maths correctly, it shouldn't take too long/be too hard, as it would simply require adding an extra pattern to recognize when parsing the markdown and compiling it into HTML.
Do you have preferences on which of the two implementations you would like to have? Mathjax or Latex? Mathjax would also provide support for mhchem I think.
I could use github pages (a free web page that comes with projects on github) to have a live demo of how a card that uses the note type would feel/work.
This could be useful for new users to try out the note type and the tabs functionalities.
Would this be a deal breaker when it comes to trying out the project for you?

Recap of the questions

These are the questions I'd like to have a feedback on, you can copy-paste them when replying:
• On the new feature that sends the cards and images directly to Anki:
• Should there be the possibility of writing the tags in the tabs using #This_format?
• Is the metadata invasive/annoying or do you think it could work? Do you have other ideas?
• On the extra features:
• Do you think having the possibility of calling the script with multiple input files would help your workflow? If so, would you like to be able to specify different default decks for each input file?
• On maths: Do you have preferences on which of the two implementations you would like to have? Mathjax (mhchem) or Latex? Latex support requires extra setup from the user
• Live demo: Would this be a deal breaker when it comes to trying out the project for you?
• Extra feedback on the app or other ideas for features you'd like

Thanks!

Thank you for reading everything until here, I'm happy to build a tool that people want and can use to have a better time when making cards :)
Looking forward to knowing what you think!

2023.03.29 11:51 BEER_IN_CEREAL Down 10KG as of today!

Just wanted to share a short term goal I've been thinking about since I started trying to lose weight!
I started intermittently fasting by accident mid-January. I work from home, so I go for my lunch break as late as possible to reduce the amount of time I have to work after lunch, and I don't have breakfast. I try to walk a couple of miles on my lunch break, before eating anything. I watched this video about dopamine detox, which I tried to apply to my weight loss - Rather than just eating, I try to do activities which release dopamine while I'm hungry, such as going for a walk, so my body/brain adjusts to not mind being hungry. I don't know if it's actually doing anything - but I'll take a placebo.
I didn't start weighing myself regularly until the end of February, but I weighed 114.4kg at some point in January. I was probably heavier than that at some point, but I wasn't checking.
I think I've found it easier than most because I'm a very habitual person. I aim for 1000-1500 calories a day, just depends how hungry I am. Some days I've had as little as 800 with no discomfort.
I signed up for a fitness center this month, which is a 15 minute cycle away. I've been doing bouldering 2-3 times a week. I've also done two gym classes, but they wreck my legs to the point that I can't go climbing for 2 days without feeling like I'm going to hurt myself, so I'm going to be doing those every Monday after work, and climb twice later in the week.

2023.03.29 11:51 fisheee_cx Tonight has been really rough

I’ve basically been living with my boyfriend since my cat died and I’m back at my apartment alone tonight for just the 2nd time. The first time I came back I felt surprisingly ok, until morning when I turned to look for my cat when I woke up before I remembered he’s gone. I thought this time would be similar but it’s so much harder tonight.
I just miss him so much. I can’t stop crying. He was with me for 12 years and I thought it would be even longer. When I was sad he was my comfort, and I feel like I don’t know what to do without him.
He had kidney disease and I know I did everything I could at the time, but sometimes I can’t get away from the guilt over everything I wish I had done differently. I just hope he was as happy as I thought and that he knew how much I loved him. It hurts so much to think I’ll never see him again.

2023.03.29 11:50 Dry_Bison_7901 When applying Stoic philosophy is most desired in my life, I fail to do so. How do you prevent that from happening? What is your Stoic daily/weekly/monthly routine?

For the past couple of years I've been trying to apply Stoic philosophy into my daily life, and for the most part, I've been successful.
However, there were some periods when I just "gave up" on it and returned to my old ways. Only to be brutally reminded of the importance of having a Stoic mindset in your daily life. Basically, I cannot see any area of life in which having Stoics mindset cannot help.

I've never been a fan of reading Aurelius and Epictetus. English not my native language, and their "works" not being translated into my language made it even harder.
Now, it is not that I do not understand what is written, but it's just that I always enjoyed when things were "dumbed down" and explained to make it as practical as it gets. Thus, Seneca is my number one source and I frankly enjoy reading Letters to a friend. Spent hundreds of hours doing so.
I also enjoy what we have from Rufus. It ain't much but it is a good read and I do frequently revisit it.
But that is obviously not enough if you want to live by this philosophy and apply it as much as possible.
So, what I did is this. I took the most promising practices from multiple sources I've read, summarized them and made myself some daily practices. I call them "Theme of the day." So basically, every day I read a short summary of my daily practice, write a small note on my phone, put in on the display so I am reminded trough the day of it. And I try to ponder about it and apply it as much as possible. This works great. It doesn't make things dull and it keeps me motivated.
The other things I do is called "Impermanence journal." Basically, as I go trough my day, and notice some urges to act in undesirable way, like argue with some random person, buy junk food, not do what I should be doing and so on. I simply write the date, time of the day and what happened. Inputs look something like this:
2903 - 05:45 - Strong urge to remain in bed and do nothing today
2903 - 10:20 - Urge to have junk food. Feeling like I absolutely MUST have it. If I don't, the urge will never go away...
2903 - 12:45 - I am feeling great right now. Had a very productive morning. If it wasn't for this journal, I would not even remember I had an urge for a junk food, nor would I remember that I felt like shit on waking up. Isn't that amazing? How everything is impermanent and always changing? I do not have to act on my urges and I do not have to listen to my thoughts and feelings.
2903 - 15:27 - Ok, urges for junk food are back and it feels like I ABSOLUTELY MUST indulge them. But....given that I felt the same way 5 hours ago, and I lived without actually breaking my resolve, I can try again. If anything, I won't act on this urge for next 5 minutes and I'll see how it goes.
Basically, that's just a short summary, but as you can see. It is a great tool. It helps you to reflect on your action and it makes you more in control of your life.

So yes, when I am actually sticking to this, my life is much better. However, from time to time, I just kind of "forget" about it all and stop practicing altogether.
Every time I do so, I regretted it, because, like I already said, Stoicism makes life much more bearable and everything is easier with a great mindset.

I am not actually expecting any kind of miraculous advice, I got it going. System is working, nothing needs to change. It is just that I need to stop "forgetting" about it.
I guess the answer to my opening question is more doing, more practice, until it becomes a second nature to me.

So, how you do it? How do you practice and apply it into your daily life?

2023.03.29 11:50 Bafver Wave patterns in the eye of an eternal hurricane

Hello everyone,
I've come upon a small roadblock with a project I'm currently working on that I was hoping to get some advice on. The setting centered on an island in the eye of an eternal and unmoving hurricane. With the eye itself being around 500km across. And the issue I've encountered is determining which direction the ocean waves would move around the island. I've read that in regular hurricanes the waves in the eye moves in pretty much every direction. Sometimes colliding and cancelling out or building into large rogue waves with no real order to it. But how would this change when the hurricane lasts for thousands of years without moving? Would the waves still be that chaotic or would they eventually settle into a pattern of sorts?
Or should I just throw logic out the window and just do what I want because an eternal. immobile hurricane is not logical to start with? :)
My current idea is that the waves have over time settled into a circular pattern around the island. Which makes sea travel very difficult when going against the direction of the waves. So rather than relying on sails the ships would basically ride the waves to their next destination. And would then need to circumnavigate the whole island to get back to where they started.

2023.03.29 11:47 hosomachokamen Paint colours for this bathroom

Just bought my first home and looking at how to fix this bathroom. I like a natural, Japandi vibe but understand I need to be flexible as I don't want to retile . I would be open to painting the tiles (if that can be done without it falling apart within a year). If possible I would like to keep some of the tiles unpainted? What colours would you go for the walls. What kind of fixtures etc? Any advice would be helpful for a newbie like me. I don't have more photos yet as we haven't moved in yet, just excited to have a place of my own! https://imgur.com/JTzNLRq.jpg

2023.03.29 11:46 MylesUnderscored I want to learn to ride a bike or scooter, but I'm not sure I can.

As a kid I (26m) had space away from cars but I never had the opportunity to learn how to ride a bicycle or a scooter. Now, I live somewhere else and I could probably afford my own bike, but the area I live in is so pedestrian unfriendly it feels like it would be massively unsafe to try.
There are bikes you can rent downtown, which is a little less hazardous, but you'd definitely need to know what you're doing first. People who drive in the area joke about hitting people who ride those lime/other electric scooters around, which makes me nervous. Even without that though, since I never learned how to use a manual scooter, I don't feel confident on an electric one. I know it's kinda small and silly, but I feel cheated of a skill that I think I would really enjoy.

2023.03.29 11:45 fukinathoughts Omg, this got really long

I guess that's how long it's supposed to be. 🧺☮️🏛️
I've been contemplating the thought I've been aware of lately, 'i am the only one here,' bc it's not a course statement, not a quote, yet it feels so right. I did not say 'i am alone'. I am standing in the cave, and I am aware of seeing this body me looking at 3 body people who turned into me. This awareness, watching the body me, experiencing, is me.
When I picture the 'cave vision' I recently experienced where I really saw (Carl Jung said everything in the awake state is you, like a dream. Plz correct me if I am wrong here) that all the people bodies are just me, and are symbols of some part of me, that 'they' are a part of me that seems to do that, whatever it is, I was so relieved and felt like I could rest.. I am the dreamer, I am awareness of the dreamer, of the character.
So seen as somebody else, they, anyone I see as a 'body person', as some one else, are illusions. It is 'a you' in the egoic illusions. Every one is a part of my dream, 'my' illusion. I am not 'in the illusion' the illusion is 'in me', in mind.
An illusion of me interacting with 'you', conflicting with 'you' in my mind, who I made up, thought up, imagined up, made an ego for, dreamed up, is illusion bc I do battle with my self disguised as an other. Twoness. A hallucination. I am the only one here. It is all only 'happening' in my mind. Conflict, which needs another by definition, is a thought that I think I think based on the illusion of other, based on a dream of needing to be other than I am. It could be my 'self' that is other. But I am Christ in truth. Right now. I am in heaven where I 'stand', thinking up fear, thinking I have to 'make it' on my own, having to study acim and understand it and 'get' it, bc otherwise....
It, everything is in my mind. You cannot think a thought that is outside your mind. You are in my mind, but since you are in my mind, you are me. Thoughts leave not their source. Everything that is in your mind should be there, bc this is how we learn. We look at whatever thought comes up and welcome it without judgement.
And my greatest fear...that as I understand these ideas I will go manic bc I had almost all of these same insights while I was manic in 2014. This fear seems real and legitimate. I have asked for the hs's Answer and trust it will come. Hell is not real. And in this moment, I am not an illusion, I am not a story. I am not created for conflict. When I battle 'something' in my mind, I experience fear, and i seem to become who I am not. There is no 'you' 'out there'. We are all I., Christ, at one with our Father.
We have also attempted to make concepts of God Jesus HS Christ. We imagined them up with our understanding. It is virtually impossible to grasp who they are. All is God and all is love. If I need to know more, I will be told.
I am, and I am innocent. We all just got a little confused about our identity, our labels, and our Father, Jesus, holy spirit, Christ, Christ Mind. They are our help, bringing us to the awareness of truth. There is nothing to be saved from, in Reality. 'Ask and receive. What's so hard about that?' - Jesus, acim.
Chapter 23
What you remember is a part of you. ²For you must be as God created you. ³Truth does not fight against illusions, nor do illusions fight against the truth. ⁴Illusions battle only with themselves. ⁵Being fragmented, they fragment. ⁶But truth is indivisible, and far beyond their little reach. ⁷You will remember what you know when you have learned you cannot be in conflict. ⁸One illusion about yourself can battle with another, yet the war of two illusions is a state where nothing happens. ⁹There is no victor and there is no victory. ¹⁰And truth stands radiant, apart from conflict, untouched and quiet in the peace of God.
Conflict must be between two forces. ²It cannot exist between one power and nothingness. ³There is nothing you could attack that is not part of you. ⁴And by attacking it you make two illusions of yourself, in conflict with each other. ⁵And this occurs whenever you look on anything that God created with anything but love. ⁶Conflict is fearful, for it is the birth of fear. ⁷Yet what is born of nothing cannot win reality through battle. ⁸Why would you fill your world with conflicts with yourself? ⁹Let all this madness be undone for you, and turn in peace to the rememberance of God, still shining in your quiet mind. (ACIM, T-23.I.7:1-10;8:1-9)
circleofa.org Dream Figures, Robert Perry
'We are the dreamer'
The dream figures are figures in our dream. Therefore, we are the ones pulling their strings. We are making them act out. But since they seem to be someone else performing these actions, it is obvious that through the dream figures, we are carrying out actions that we don’t want to admit we are doing.
Projection We project the darkness in us onto the dream figures for two reasons:
We can’t bear to admit it’s in us
We still want to see it acted out
Our compromise is that someone else acts it out. Now it gets done, and we get to be innocent for what is done. But our denial that we are the ones doing it also causes us to feel victimized by the dream figures.
There are many explanations for why the dream figures attack us:
We project onto them our own murderous thoughts, so they are murderous
We project onto them our murderous thoughts, which are thoughts of treachery against ourselves, so the dream figures are treacherous to us. They turn on us.
We project onto them the sinful things we did that we don’t want to admit we did. Now they do those things to us.
We project onto them our own desire to get vengeance on ourselves, so they get vengeance on us
We project onto them our desire to attack ourselves for what we’ve done to others, so they attack us
We project onto them our need to be punished, so they punish us.
We project onto them our own hatred of our Creator, so they hate us, their maker.
We project onto them the abusive motives we have given our body, so they abuse our body
We project them out of our need to judge and condemn. So they become figures that attack us and so “make” us judge and condemn. Our need to judge and condemn seems to come from them.
With several of these there is a clear “boomerang effect.” We make the dream figures out of some impulse of attacking something else (other people, God, attacking others with our body), and this makes dream figures that attack us. I can only assume that some sort of psychological justice principle is at work here. It’s as if when I project out there my own murderous thoughts, they morph slightly and take on their “just” form of murdering me.
We assign the dream figures double purposes
Consciously, the dream figures are supposed to do our will, to fill our needs, to save us from the dream. Unconsciously, they are supposed to attack and punish us and turn on us. When the dream figures fill this unconscious need, they frustrate the conscious need. And since we have denied the unconscious need, they seem to be acting against our will.

2023.03.29 11:45 Relevant_Departure_5 Personal thoughts/hopes for Eida’s power and the next chapters

So Chapter 79 is a banger but to me it is solely gonna rely on the extent of Eida’s reality power and how long it will lead Boruto to being out casted.
The only potential issue or plot hole with Eida’s power is if it’s more of mass genjutsu than actually reality bending. Like if it’s simply just altered memories then the village should figure out Boruto is Naruto’s son in like a few days realistically bc there should be millions of pictures and records of him since he was a baby as Naruto’s son. I wish kishi gave a little panel showing a family picture or some physical footprint of Boruto changing to Kawaki to clarify this before a hiatus. This could also relate to training as Kawaki doesn’t know how to do any of Naruto or Hinata jutsu and thus the entire training arc with Sasuke would have to be erased from reality if Kawaki being Naruto’s son/Sasuke master were to make sense or even weirder Naruto should be known by the new reality as someone with Kawaki’s science like powers being jutsu instead of Raesengan.
The other issue is that if it’s ONLY just switching Boruto and Kawaki around then Boruto could just retell specific memories with his people to get them to start thinking. Ideally they’d have to slightly alter the past real events beyond just character switching such that Boruto couldn’t just retell what happen as if he were the now Kawaki (for example telling Himawari a story of them when they were young). If kishi doesn’t address this tho ig it’s somewhat slidable since I guess theoretically the village can act like Boruto has some power to access their memories though it’s be very sus or they could make the pace too fast for Boruto to have the time to explain himself.
But even if this part of Eida power was addressed how I’d want it to be, based on current foreshadowing Boruto still has Sasuke headband which seems like it’s gonna play a role. I can see this only going 3 ways.
1) This should be one of the only if not the only thing that isn’t completely changed by reality. For example, Boruto black/pink clothes shouldn’t ever have been Kawakis clothes in the new reality but the headband has to have been Kawaki’s in past memory according to the new reality. And then Kawaki has to somehow explain that Boruto stole it from him which causes suspicion.
2) Sasuke doesn’t even think the headband was ever his until later down the series he had some insane backup plan that triggers his memory of the original reality of the headband so he had a lead to believe Boruto is the son.
3) Sasuke doesn’t need the headband and just trusts Sarada using Sharingan/her memories or has something he had in place to combat the reality switch somehow. That way he just leaves the village with Boruto, which won’t be shocking for villagers considering lot of them despise him for 3rd Great War events.
Also, I think outside of Boruto, Kawaki, Eida, Naruto, and Hinata, the only current non-npc people who should know about the real reality are Sarada and Sumire. It would be kinda lame for Himawari to know but it’s possible bc if Sarada and Sumire are unaffected bc of distant Otsuski blood connection then she should be unaffected too. I really hope it’s not a “love trope” reason they are immune to Eida bc that would make for an unneeded, boring love triangle becoming even more important than it already is that I can’t see Kishi writing well.
As for the next chapters, I really hope that Code comes along in the next few chapters/big event with his army and Kawaki saves the village as the new “hero” since he still wants to village to be safe as Naruto’s built it. They need to emphasise that Kawaki plays borutos role as a typical mc and “hero” well atleast according to the village and is reaping benefits of not being an outsider. This would make Kawaki seem like an insane hero giving him a Naruto-Pain arc moment and further build his rep in the village and more importantly rebuild his rep with the readers since then technically both Boruto and Kawaki saved the village even without reality switching aspects. This also makes it harder to view Kawaki as completely bad once the original reality is found out by the village.
On the other hand, I’d love to see Boruto struggle at first at being a lone wolf and eventually get better at it to highlight his development and riches to rags story. He can’t be cold and cool about going solo from the get-go like Sasuke. He needs a spoiled-rich-kid-faces-reality wrong moment instead of just easily walking alone but just angry.
This allows for a cool parallel where both guys can mirror their idols even if they have very different backgrounds.
Also for the love of god better not be some 1-2 chapter fix like all the other big events such as Naruto Baryon mode or Borutos first death. They need to make game changer stay a game changer.

2023.03.29 11:45 Corn_hole12 Audio confusion, new user

I use potato (and run windows 10) to have the ability to play music and use a text to speech program and feed it into my mic in VrChat, i have no clue how it sounds in game and im waiting on help to get feedback on that, but i have a couple questions and any help is appreciated!
how can i both play the music through my mic and hear the music thats playing through any earbuds or built in speakers so i dont have to keep switching the output/input? i would still like to use spotify normally when all the other programs are closed
and how can i put my text to speech on one input and spotify on another input and still have both go through to my mic in game so i can adjust the volume of one without affecting the other?
another thing i want to disable when i push f1 through f4, a popup appears on the top left of my screen which lets me control the volume of the music thats playing by pressing those buttons, i want that gone because im vrchat shift - f1 through f8 has a use id rather have over controlling the volume that way
I have never used this before and its safe to say i know nothing about how this works, so if any of these questions are impossible i apologize

2023.03.29 11:45 RobitIsNotAHobit3000 Hello, How do I cite an article that is published online and is part of journal but it does not have a release and an issue?

So this is the article Full article: Statecraft in the Steppes: Central Asia’s Relations with China (tandfonline.com)
It is apparently published in "Journal of Contemporary China" however when I checked all issues from this and past year it is not there. Authors have also given advice on how to cite it without issue and release number.
My professor told me that this is online article without mentioned issue and relase number and that I need to find a way how to cite it, yet I am confused.
This is how I did currently cite it but I am not sure if I need to add anything more

2023.03.29 11:44 Nekumiya 25 [TF4F/TF/NB] Ireland looking for romantic partner

Hi all, Welcome to my post!
I figured I'll try my luck here, you see, there are some things that apparently are considered 'red flags' (listed below) that just don't work for some people, and so I figured instead of trying one by one I can just go with the flow of the internet :D
red flags: - I'm not a fan of 'the seggz'. like it's fun and all, but it just kinda feels like a chore in a way? I'll take cuddles (preferably along with a cup of hot chocolate) instead or a cake anytime ~ ^ -I have D.I.D. (specifically OSDD-1b). this means that I essentially (and simplifying) have multiple people in my head ~ -Ill either respond within 2 minutes or 5 working days to any text /hj
from the nicer stuff tho, I enjoy reading webnovels a lot, my favorite ones at the moment are: 'demonic devourer', 'reborn as a demonic tree' and ' dungeon life'. I'm also looking for more stuff to read ~
manga/manhwa for the most part is a yes for me, with 'im not that kind of talent' and 'of all things, I became a crow' being the two I follow up with the most, even tho my title list is loooong and I sometimes end up binge-catching-up with the ones I forgot about a year or so ago 😅
Music-wise, I honestly can't imagine my life without it, it accompanies me literały every chance I have, for the most part regardless of what kind of music it is, my taste changes often, and comes back just as often. that said there are periods of time when there is only one specific song I'll be listening to on repeat , the most recent one being 'understand' by BoyWithUke, and trying to sing along without suffocating 🤣
I like cooking and baking. Been vegan for a while now, and it was super fun making food that's good and vegan and I had a lot of fun experimenting with different recipes and substituting stuff for other stuff. a while ago I learned how to make epic burgers and I've been making them every weekend since, just bcoz I like them xD . Baking however im still trying to figure out how to do nicer stuff, my most recent thing was vanilla cupcakes, I love vanilla :3
There are other stuff, like Online video games, all of which are niche / not so popular titles, movies/series , but those are more like comfort shows then hobby if that makes sense? I'm also one of those weird people who actually enjoys watching AskReddit videos c:
I'd love to learn to play a guitar, tho I'm not really in a position to do so at the moment, I wanna see some more of the world, even tho I'm a lot more indoorsy then outdoorsy 🙂 there are other things I'd like to do like cosplay, learning more languages, drawing / painting. I don't do those things, bcoz I'm not good at them and when they don't turn out the way I want the to I feel like a failure and I lose all my motivation 😔
I'm not really looking for anything specific, I'd love me a romantic partner but anything and everything else that's not sexual is a yes probably, therefore my only hard requirement is that you're 22years old or over ~
wellp, that turned out a lot longer then I was expecting it to but I guess it's fine? I do talk a lot sometimes 😊

2023.03.29 11:42 miuen4o How to play in a stadium without shadows, maybe there's one with a roof?

No matter what I do, my match conditions keep resetting to midday 12pm or random. Therefore I'm forced to play with shadows quite often. Is there any way I can avoid this?
The graphics look so much better when it's a night game.
Is there a closed stadium? Or any other way I can force the matches to only be at night?

2023.03.29 11:41 Doomshit123 I'm so overwhelmed, filled with dread and dissonance.

Where do I even start?
I feel deeply ashamed everyday, deeply guilty. I want to do things to progress and enjoy my life but I genuinely feel disabled (not physically), I just can't do anything.
When I say disabled, what I mean is that while I can do minimal things to be a "functioning" person like wake up on time and go to work but the entire time I feel completely hopeless and out of it, I can't do things that matter to me or things that I need to do. I can barely even do anything that is supposed to be leisure because I'm locked in my head and can barely derive joy from things. The only times I feel like I can enjoy things now is if I'm smoking weed. I feel as though I'm not completely immersed in my life. I'm constantly tired, guess I can thank my sleep schedule for that but every time I try to fix it, I get decent sleep for a couple days and inevitably fuck it up because of my impulses to stay up late. I always feel more alive and slightly better at night. I don't know why but my impulses just have such a strong hold on me that I cannot resist them whatsoever. Do I enjoy feeling like a zombie everyday? I just feel fucking depressed, it's probably all my bad habits making me think this way.
Maybe I don't have the right structure for my days? I'm currently conscripted which makes me just feel bad in general because I always thought it's a waste of time, and now I know that to be a fact. I could never get used to the structure of school and honestly the army feels the same way, just much more boring and depressing, I don't feel connected to even a single person in my base. Add the fact that smoking weed is highly illegal especially in the army (without a medical permit) and if I get caught it can put a stain on my civilian life later on, not like I can see that far forward, so I say fuck it anyway.
Then I have my dad who looms over me and it makes me so fucking anxious and filled with dread. It's not like he is constantly fighting me nowadays. He always asks me if I'm doing productive things but I fail everyday. I feel like I have to lie to him, it's what I always did. I live with him and help clean the house but sometimes I fall short even in house chores. I have a hard time not lying to him about everyday small things because when I'm truthful, he doesn't understand me and doesn't really care to listen. If I lie, I feel a little relief short term and then it all explodes anyway.
He told me that I'd never survive without him all alone, that I'm incapable of doing anything myself. It's all true and I hate it. I hate relying on him but I don't have a choice right now, still I'd like to pull my own weight somehow. Even if I could go live by myself or with roommates, or with my mom, I'd never be able to make it work and it won't fix shit. He constantly says he loves me and tries to get close but it's such a big cognitive dissonance because in my childhood and teenage years I absolutely despised and resented him, he treated my mom like shit and would often break stuff in angry rampages, hit me, verbally abuse my mom and me like it's nothing, scream at us for what felt like almost every day, etc., I thought about just ending it all pretty early on but not seriously, I don't think those thoughts even registered in my brain correctly. This is such a shit thing to say, but I don't love him and wish I could function on my own so I wouldn't need to interact with him.
Sometimes he asks me if I see him as my pet dog (as in he thinks I degrade him in my mind or don't think much of him) or if I would care if he dies. If I'm being completely honest with myself, I'd love to never see him again. I don't feel any love for him, I'm sorry. Today I'm gonna go back home and tell him that everything is fine like usual, like everyday. If I tell him the truth he would not get through it because he always tells me that I am everything he has. How the fuck am I supposed to react? I feel like a parasite in his home, yet he tries to comfort me and say that he supports me while ignoring all the years of pain he so comfortably inflicted on me and my mom.
I don't know how to deal with anything, the only coping mechanisms I've learned are things like reckless behaviour, overeating, smoking weed, forms of escapism, daydreaming, spending too much...
Today I had some suicidal thoughts that kind of led to me making this thread, I quickly snapped out of it like I usually do thankfully but it led me to think a bit. If I can just make all my problems disappear by simply taking the right pills and never wake again, then are they even problems in the first place? Maybe life isn't all I thought it was supposed to be and the actual answer is that life is just endless pain. I don't want to slog through it anymore like a helpless piece of garbage. Even if I get my shit together, get a degree, get a well paying job, strengthen bonds with my friends and find people I could call family for real, make sure I don't treat my kids like my dad treated me, in the very end it doesn't matter because I just don't see how I can get out of this hole. There's just never a way out. Even when I feel like I'm starting to make progress I always fall back down further and it's harder to try again.
I'm so fucking confused. I wish I could find a way in life because sometimes there's moments that I feel are worth experiencing but it's not worth going through the agony my head puts me in. I want to cry but can't. I want share this with someone who actually cares but the friends who do genuinely care for me probably don't want hear my sob story, everyone has their troubles, what makes my problems worth listening to? Guess I'll throw this into the void that is Reddit and hope someone can share some kind words or advice.
I want to find a solution or die, I admit I'm incapable of doing it myself.

2023.03.29 11:41 Captn_Thatch Celtic and Rochester: A WoWsL Tier 7 Review

• Super Heal
• Improved AP

USS Rochester (CA-124)

• Smoke Cruiser
• Excellent AA Suite
• Strong AP

Scope

These ships were given to me by Wargaming for review.
Welcome back. Sure, it does seem rather apt to jump into the first published review in sometime with the addition of two new Baltimores…well, one Oregon-City Cruiser, and another Baltimore. With both ships being so closely related, it seems fitting to tag them both together here. Per the norm, there will be lots of pretty charts, and a comprehensive breakdown of both ships; with the added benefit of showing exactly where these two wrap up into the bigger picture.
All stats are current to the best of my knowledge as of v5.1. Stats are subject to change in the future, and this review may not reflect those changes.
Celtic is a GREAT ship, with a MODERATE Skill Floor and a HIGH Skill Ceiling.
Rochester is an AVERAGE ship, with a LOW Skill Floor and a MODERATE Skill Ceiling.
Quite obviously, this review is going to be mostly centered on Celtic, with some Rochester slapped in there to show exactly how she stacks up to the competition. 2 for 1, or a freebie, you decide.
Nothing could honestly make me happier than to be able to bring reviews and writing to you all full-time. If this interests you and you enjoy reading my work, please support me if you can, as every little bit helps. My goal is to keep my reviews free and public for all to read; and by supporting my Patreon you can help keep me at my desk.

History

The design was first commissioned in the late 1930's, which adapted lessons learned from the preceding Wichita-Class and the currently under construction, lighter Cleveland Class. Baltimore's design featured an orthodox A-B-X configuration of 3 triple turrets of (8") 203mm guns. Fast and well-armed for the era, the fate of the project ended by cancelling later ships construction in favor of the Cleveland Class which were both faster, lighter, and quicker to build which meant more ships out at sea protecting US Navy Carriers. Baltimore Class Cruisers were built from 1941-1945 with some serving in various sub-classes until the 1970's.
With 14 completed ships of the class, the Baltimore-Class had the most constructed heavy cruisers built of any one class from nation during the war-time period. Generally considered a success, the class was preceded by the USS Wichita, and succeeded by the Oregon-City Class. With attached sub-classes, the Boston Class featuring the world's first Guided Missile Cruiser in the early 1950's USS Boston (CAG-1) and Flagship variations. The design was most notable for incorporation of surveillance radar, gun control fire systems which allowed for calculation beyond the horizon, 5'' Anti-Air, and 8'' Main Battery. This design was focused in on the ships ability to be a Carrier Fleet Escort Ship, capable of both Anti-Air Screening, Shore Bombardment, eventually being modified to serve as the world's first guided missile cruiser.
USS Baltimore (CA-68) herself was laid down in 1941, by Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation at the Fore River Shipyard in Quincy, Massachusetts. The ship was launched in 1942 and served until 1956 when she was decommissioned, and eventually scrapped in 1971. The ship served primarily in the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign, earning 9 battle stars.
HMS Celtic is a made-up ship that never actually existed but rests on the concept that would have been if the Baltimore Class had been sent to the Royal Navy. This was not an entirely foreign concept of the era either, with the two allied nations cooperating heavily with some ships being used by the other’s navy. It would be this cooperation that ultimately played a decisive role in every major theatre of World War 2.
USS Rochester (CA-124) was laid down in the same shipyard as her predecessor, in May 1944. She would be launched in August the following year, then commissioned into the US Navy in 1946. Succeeding the Baltimore Class, the Oregon City Class featured many similarities, with changes to her exhaust, superstructure and Anti-Air Suite. Rochester would serve throughout Korea and Vietnam, being decommissioned in the 1960s, and scrapped in the 1970s. 10 Oregon City Cruisers were planned, with only 4 completed.

Strengths: Celtic

• Royal Navy Super Heal
• Solid Anti-Air
• Sonar
• Improved AP Ricochet Angles

Weaknesses: Celtic

• Poor Fire Chance
• Lacks SHAP
• Low Base HP

Strengths: Rochester

• Smoke Generator
• Excellent AA Suite
• Improved AP Angles with SHAP

Weaknesses: Rochester

• Poor Smoke Fire Concealment
• Heal-less with Smoke Generator

The Basics

A Baltimore with a Super Heal and longer-range radar? Sign me up. Baltimore on her own is already one of the stronger ships in the game and in terms of utility, one of the stronger team players. Celtic takes an interesting concept and adds a new flair to an older line. She has her own strengths and weaknesses, all of which will be identified, some of which are likely to be seemingly splitting the finest of hairs. This ship has a bit less of a grudge against controlling caps than the traditional Baltimore but should be readily found in the same niche doing the same things, just slightly different. Radar support, anti-destroyer, area control are all tags that apply. Celtic is strong, strong enough to be thrown in with the likes of AL Baltimore, Mainz CE and Wichita CE.
Trashchester is tough. I’ll honestly do my best to not shred this ship into a bajillion pieces while pouring out the salt, but I’m only human. She was painful on release, and since she’s had work done, fitting for her review to be finally finished and published for you all to use as a dash of seasoning for dinner. On release, Rochester had a smoke fire concealment on par with her sister’s base concealment, meaning, her smoke was essentially pointless and served only to blind herself, and not her opponents. Lacking radar, Rochester presented as a clumsy self-blinding target unable to deal the things that engage her. What’s worse, Rochester trades her heal for her smoke, meaning, players are left purchasing a regular old Baltimore, with some fancy AA, or a deaf-mute without a heal. Yes. She was that painful; a concept that bumps in the worst of ways, both theoretically and in practice. While her concealment has been buffed, it’s still an awful kit as her smoke fire concealment is still too weak to present much of a force upon the caps. If we’re stuck to smoke firing spam, there are better ships than Rochester; even making good old Belfast 43 seem like a knight in shining armor.
Both of these ships do sport improved AP performance, in the shape of improved ricochet angles. We’ll tear this apart in the ballistic section, as per the norm. Baltimore’s ballistic performance has been studied quite extensively in the past, which has set up an excellent point of comparison.

Offense

• Celtic: GOOD
• Rochester: AVERAGE
Let’s start with the prodigal child and then work towards the bought rented mule. Celtic does well here, in terms of heavy cruisers (203mm) she sits nearer the top of the lists dropping more midfield when included with the rest of the pack. Apart from some of those silly DPM small caliber ships, Celtic packs a noteworthy punch. Rochester starts more midfield and holds her placing through the pack. For a 203mm cruiser, a 2s difference in reload is often enough to bump a ship up or down a rank, entirely. This translates to roughly 20k between the two, and about a full salvo difference.

Overall, there’s not all that much to crow about here. Rochester sits a bit lower on the charts than Celtic due to reload. Both have improved ballistics to offer compensation for a lack of torpedoes. The DPM numbers are at their worst, workable, and at best, functional, neither being awful nor spectacular. Celtic takes the edge due to better numbers overall.

Ballistics

• Rochester: GREAT
• Celtic: GREAT
The tell-all ballistic chart. Royal Navy Cruisers and US Navy Cruisers sport among the best AP performance in their respective classes and tiers. Celtic has among the best HE DPM numbers of the Baltimores, but takes a hit on her fire chance percentage. Rochester SHAP hits like a truck, along with her Baltimore cousins. Things get interesting here the more you study this chart, captains. Celtic has arguably better HE, but worse AP. Rochester has SHAP and excellent AP performance, but poor shell count. AL Baltimore once again takes the cake with the best “happy medium” of the bunch, sporting a decent shell count, SHAP with excellent penetration and a lower muzzle velocity introducing slightly higher arcs yielding much more forgiving angles on the receiving end…
What I can say definitively, is Baltimore SHAP has much greater penetration than the standard AP. Wichita leans on HE at range, and she has the numbers to back it up, Baltimore hardly ever shoots HE in practice which is backed up by her AP performance and penetration values. Captains, it would not be entirely erroneous in terms of gunnery to compare Stock Baltimore to Celtic and Wichita or Elite Baltimore to Rochester and AL Baltimore.

The major and palpable difference in performance here is between Celtic and the native Baltimores, is that Celtic lacks SHAP. This means Celtic’s AP shells weigh less, which translates to depleting velocity and thus penetration values faster than the Baltimores heavier shells. Fortunately, Baltimore has some of the best AP penetration in her class which means that Celtic can afford to lose some raw penetration value before she begins to suffer. Rochester wins the AP argument here, while Celtic takes the HE side. It’s almost literally splitting hairs, and Baltimore Mains will feel right at home in either ship.

If you’re looking to start fires, grab Albemarle. However, this is about the only such category she takes. Celtic manages better with access to a shorter reload and better overall ballistic properties. Shell by shell, edge Rochester, overall, solidly in Celtic’s favor by a full 9 shells.

Torpedoes

• Torpedo-less
Neither of these ships sport torpedoes, so this section is predicably blank.

Defense

• Celtic: GREAT
• Rochester: AVERAGE
Let’s jump into the major category of defense. Celtic arguably may be one of the best, Rochester, rather mediocre. From the top.
Celtic has among the best effective health pools, just edging out Edinburgh with a chunky 66k. It’s worth pointing out Albemarle tops both with a mighty 78k, though most Albemarle tend to be much more passive alluding to a different playstyle entirely. Baltimore is considered “tanky” at 56k, and Celtic adds in a super-heal. I wouldn’t chance to say Albemarle is particularly tanky, but she can heal quite well. A Baltimore is tanky enough to access that 66k EHP and is a scary thought. Baltimore can take a punch, where Edinburgh relies on defense by trickery, clever armor schemes and angling, Albemarle by range and angle. It’s also quite worth mentioning that Celtic rests with 36,7k base HP, meaning on par with most Cruiser Lights. Captains, you will feel getting hit in Celtic. Kit with 9.9km radar, sonar, a super heal, decent armor, excellent AA and workable concealment…captains, this is a literal no-brainer. Celtic is a slightly different twist off some of the most competitive ships in the game.
Rochester is rather tanky like most of her preceding Baltimore cousins. She has the same armor scheme essentially, and similar HP/EHP values. While this would normally be good on its own, Rochester has an Achilles’ Heel. Rochester must choose between having smoke or having a heal, and outright lacks Radar. While she has defensive AA, this is mostly a living meme rather than consistently as effective in combat as Radar. As said before, in terms of smoke cruisers there are just better options some of which don’t involve sacrificing your heal, or even radar. This relegates Rochester to just being a rather average 203mm CA, with very slightly better AA and decent enough armor.
The ranking seems a bit harsh, but that’s generally the difference between the hunter (Celtic), and the hunted (Rochester). Rochester initially will feel getting hit less, due to a larger health pool however, the table quickly swings in favor of Celtic, which gets most of it back.

Armor

• Celtic: GOOD
• Rochester: GOOD
This chart below sticks to the USN and RN CA/CLs for now... At some point, this chart will include overmatch and juicy other details for all the cruisers, but for now, it is simple enough to get the point across. Most Cruisers have their critical spaces directly abutting the hull, others don’t. Cruiser armor varies widely and is worth looking at because there are absolutely ships with specific advantages worth exploring and exploiting. For now, let’s keep it simple.
As summarized before, the Baltimore Class has relatively good armor, while it has its weaknesses, is generally functional enough to get by. They are neither needlessly weighed down by their armor, nor under-armored. It’s worth saying Rochester and Celtic have vaguely the same armor lay out and will handle 380mm Battleships.

Anti-Air Suite

• Rochester: BEST
• Celtic: GREAT
Rochester takes the cake here, with better and larger AA guns she’s rather resistant to airborne pests. Celtic ties in with the close second, along with her sisters. The truly beautiful thing about either ship is that captains will not need to waste any energy into building this into making this sector a functional kit. Captains, you can save some defensive energy by focusing into Celtic’s Radar and by leaving Rochester in port. The magic number here is being north of that 350/s line, Azuma scrapes by with a bit of focus, where pretty much all the USN ships will laugh off aircraft. A major point of contention that is worth noting; Rochester is immune, Celtic is quite resistant to CVs, where Albemarle gets by here, and Edinburgh is rather hindered. I suspect this will be massively impactful for competitive players.

Rochester takes the cake here, because everyone deserves to be really good at something. However, with CVs it’s important to remember everything is relative.

Concealment

• Rochester: GOOD
• Celtic: GOOD
Technically these are the same values while stock, and their rating is the same. However, this is quite deceiving. Rochester is GOOD leaning on GREAT where Celtic is GOOD leaning on AVERAGE. The reason for this follows their available commanders, which Shelly Beapley offers a unique 4th row concealment skill unavailable to any other commander, or nation. The result of this, Rochester, like her cousins sits at a comfortable 9.3km, where Celtic sits at 9.9km. Rochester can do almost nothing with this concealment, as she lacks radar, and her smoke fire window is just a pale 1.7km below her surface concealment. However, that .6km is a palpable difference and can open huge strategic windows; particularly once south of that magic 10km line.
The obvious connotation here is that hiding a radar cruiser inside 10km is far scarier than hiding a smoke cruiser inside 9.5, provocatively when that same smoke cruiser can be spotted inside her smoke at 7.6km. Captains, this 7.6km is on par with her sisters, however, this is a very narrow margin even for a support cruiser. Smoke is infinitely easier to use than radar, however, infinitely less forgiving.

Maneuverability

• Celtic: GOOD
• Rochester: WEAK
Celtic sits almost smack dab of the upper midfield pack of heavy cruisers where Rochester sits more towards the end of the pack. Rochester feels clunky and handles like it, where Celtic feels more “native” to her respective class sharing the same stats. While this is rated good overall, its more average in the face of Lighter Cruisers, representing more of a bang-for-the-buck scenario.

Commanders

Celtic:
Celtic essentially has one commander that is head and shoulders ahead of the rest, while the rest kind of just work. HotRod offers the best fit here inarguably, along with Radar Edinburgh and Radar Minotaur. This sets Celtic up to be a near par build with the USN CA Queen Shelly Beapley. While her 4th row skill’s absence here is certainly felt and results in a 9.9km concealment, the build is largely similar and works well for any radar focused cruiser. While there are other builds out there, this is the gem of the lot and helps unlock that sacred mantra of utility that surrounds the Baltimore Class. Inspirations should focus on concealment, Mikawa and Swirski, to bring Celtic’s detection to pair with her Radar.
HotRod
• Cognizant: -10% Radar Cooldown Time
• Ingenious: -7% Incoming Splash Damage, +1.6o/s Gun Traverse
• Full Speed Ahead: +5% Speed, -10% Rudder Shift
• Prescience: -20% Air Detection, +10% Radar Duration
• Acoustic Chamber: -25% Sonar Cooldown, +5% Sonar Duration, +1 Sonar Charge
• Fully Packed: -5% Consumable Reload, +1 Consumable Charge
Rochester:
Nothing can be easy with Rochester, and naturally, building her was to the same effect. Essentially there are two trains of thought for this ship, build into dispersion or build into utility.
AL Montpelier seemed to mesh the best, which then turns Rochester into a little flamethrower capable of merging all her shells into a single pixel. However, this build is rather finicky to use and has a fair number of weaknesses. The build heavily relies on team spotting and is itself a second-line cruiser. Something like a 19-20% fire chance and a nasty dispersion circle. Rochester already has excellent gunnery performance as discussed; Montpelier really sharpens the sword. Pair with AL Scharnhorst and Scott to reduce dispersion and sigma, respectively, even further.
AL Montpelier
• Anti-Air Mode: +10% AA Range
• Burn it Down XXL: +2% Fire Chance
• Igniter: +3% Fire Chance
• All-Out Assault: +4% Sigma, +10% Incoming Fire Dispersion, +5% Incoming Damage
• Fixated: +5% Sigma, -5% Dispersion
• Fully Packed: -5% Consumable Reload, +1 Consumable Charge
It's a rare day when Shelly gets sat down in favor of another commander in the USN CA tree, but I kept falling into the same pitfalls using the same build for similar ships often being able to use radar. Shelly will help bring out Rochester’s utility, but she’s arguably not as well fit in on Rochester as AL Montpelier is. Pair Beapley with concealment inspirations from Mikawa and Swirski and enjoy a very beautiful 9.3km concealment. Rochester has SHAP and excellent penetration values, meaning she can readily ambush and critically strike ships quite larger than her, all without torpedoes.
Shelly Beapley
• Refractory: -8% Chance of catching fire
• Ingenious: -7% Incoming Splash Damage, +1.6o/s Gun Traverse
• Full Speed Ahead: +5% Speed, -10% Rudder Shift
• Velocious: +5% Speed
• Private Zone: -8% Detectability
• Fully Packed: -5% Consumable Reload, +1 Consumable Charge

Consumables

Ok, rather than spell out everything, everywhere, all at once; I’m going to keep it simple here.
Celtic:
1. Damage Control: Standard, unlimited uses. 60s cooldown.
2. Sonar: 3km Torp, 4.2km Ship detection. Lasts around 98s when kit with Hot Rod and reloads in 132.
4. Heal: 733/s over 20s. Yep, that’s over 14k HP. Reloads in less than a minute too.
Celtic has a near ideal consumable suite. There are some differences off the mainstream, such as slightly less sonar range or shorter radar duration. Glossing over the minor differences, the bigger picture reveals something better. Built, Celtic can regenerate a LOT of health.
Rochester:
1. Damage Control: Standard, unlimited. 60s cooldown.
2. Defensive AA: +200% average AA damage. This is memes, it's sort of like a bug zapper for planes.
3. Sonar: Standard 3.3km/4.4km detection over 96s. The average sonar found on everything.
4. Smoke/Heal: 30s duration, 104s dissipation time for the smoke. 251/s over 28s for the heal.
Rochester is rather standard in her access to her consumables, with the killer choice between smoke or a heal. I’ve gone back and forth, generally landing on the heal. Rochester is essentially a decent cruiser hampered by her rather average consumable suite.

Modifications

1. Aiming Systems Mod 1: -7% Dispersion
2. Steering Gears Mod 2: -20% Rudder Shift
3. Concealment Mod 1: -10% Detectability
4. Main Battery Mod 3: -15% Gun Reload
Ok, so the modifications section is super easy because both ships share the same builds. Aiming Systems mod 1 for the dispersion, player’s choice on slot 2 with either propulsion mod 2 or steering gears mod 2. Concealment Mod 1 for slot 3 and finishing off slot 4 by increasing DPM with main battery mod 3.

• Both Celtic and Rochester are premium ships without any researchable upgrades.

Research

• Neither of these ships are currently used in Research Projects. Look out though, one of those random reward or anniversary projects in the future might literally scream having one of these two tucked inside.

Summary

• Celtic: GREAT
• Rochester: AVERAGE
Celtic is a joy. Rochester is work.
I can see Celtic becoming a popular contestant in competitive play with the access to that 9.9km radar and her super heal. I rather lamented her HE performance, more due to her lower fire chance then her DPM or ballistic performance. While it would be nice to see her have ¼ pen HE, she doesn’t need it. I find her nicely balanced and well measured to take on Tier 7. She is just unique enough to warrant her own review, whilst similar enough to stay nearer the beaten path. While she may not comfortably and outright usurp Wichita CE and AL Baltimore from their spots, she’s worth mentioning with the group. That’s saying something.
Rochester, well, let’s just say that not everyone can be the best. This ship is tough but can be rewarding in a sense of overcoming the demands of a challenging ships. My issue with Rochester is 2-fold, her smoke and her heal. She ideally needs both to function in this current meta, and running the ship’s gimmick leaves her with abysmal EHP in a plummet from pretty good to 3rd worst overall, which only trumps Harbin and Bayard while being out-healed by Weimar. With a smoke-fire penalty in the mid 7’s km, smoke is hard to use effectively that is not relegated to back line, HE spam. As said before, if we’re really going to be stuck to this, there are ships which do this better. While I love the perspective of a USN CA without radar just to offer something more unique, a USN CA without Radar is like a cart without a horse. Hilariously enough, Rochester seems to avoid CV games like the actual plague, so I suppose that’s one strong point. Otherwise, and largely, captains are left with a rather average 203mm CA.

2023.03.29 11:40 ElephantOk9785 Do i give up? or do i keep trying?

Hey so im new to this all and just dating in general.
I met someone a few months ago in august and i never thought id be the type of person to fall in love except her she literally walked in and i knew i loved her.
i found a way to talk to her somehow and it went amazing she liked me i liked her we may have gone too fast but it felt right? we felt connected. i went from talking to her casually to us saying we liked each other in the matter of not even a week, then it was bam love in 2 weeks we was in a relationship she was practically moved in i know fast but it was love? or i thought it was. my whole view of life changed, i used to go out a lot d i was a smoker and drinker previously until i had a stroke, my gf new the life i had before, i would go out practically every night but i never even talked to girls? was just to drink and have a laugh with friends, i never even hit on anyone over the 2 year period, never kissed someone i mean hell i never even spoke to a girl. and after i thought id never find anyone, well not even before ! but i did and i was literally given a second chance and there she was it felt like my second chance. She gave me a purpose in life, i never had one until now.we talked a lot about our future together and we both had the same goals or thereabouts and i found out we're expecting our first child together, we found out just after Christmas. then literally BAM it all started going wrong? i have a dog which she does not like there were discussions on if we ever did have a baby? that she'd prefer the dog not here, She did not want to move in until the dog had gone. i wasn't exactly over the moon about it because my parents passed away and it was their dog, ive had this dog for over 12 years, she was the last living thing of my mum? But i always chose our baby first, i never hesitated i never said no, i just said if that's the case id like to make sure she's in a safe place, i asked friends and family but unfortunately they could not have my dog.so i looked into places from reputable shelters so RSPCA, Dogs trust, blue cross , faith, just basically any respected shelter. She was on lists for those places i think i was in contact or on a list for around 12-17 places. She said put her on gumtree, i was hesitant i said no, i heard stories about that growing up and it didn't feel right, i heard they use animals for bait and breeding etc, and i didn't feel comfortable with it, we had arguements over it but i didn't feel right doing it so i said no. Then this lead to a problem where she said i didn't care about her or our baby, i didn't think they're a priority that i would rather chose my dog over the chance to be a family? this lead to countless arguements, and eventually it was to the point she would not come round unless the dog was not here, i used to be able to get her a way for a night now and then, but then this lead to her not coming round at all.then more problems, she told me she was not feeling affectionate , we barely kissed, held hands, cuddled anything romantic or physical, I gathered maybe the hormones? the pregnancy maybe? her body is going through something i can't understand and i wish i could, but i just said im here still for everything, just talk to me.
i had friends from work, who were females it was a very female oriented place, but they had other partners and kids, i would like a picture of them and their other half with their kids in it or speak to them say oh they look nice in a photo, but she thought i was into them? I told her ive never had any romantic feelings for anyone other than her tbh, and im not even lying i never really found myself to be in love or even like anyone tbh, i was very alone just friends. ive never once flirted, or talked to another girl unless they were a friend. I was the type of person growing up to say oh hey lovely, or alright beautiful, or hey trouble i would say this to anyone regardless, from my age to 70s i call my neighbor beautiful and she is in her 60s with more of a beard then me, i never meant it romantically or to flirt i was just being too nice i guess, maybe i shouldn't have when i was in a relationship? but it was what i was used to, and i knew and she knew i never meant it to be in a romantic or flirt way. she wasn't happy with me i told her i wouldn't do it again, and i meant it because i never wanted to be disrespectful or ever make her insecure she was my world, my eyes were on her where ever we went , we were all over each other.
this lead to her saying i think we need a break, and i pushed it i should've said look ill give you space ?but i didn't want to abandon her? I felt like a break was just another word for im leaving you and i didn't want that, i wanted to be there to help her , go through this together so she wasn't alone. I know i pushed things i did the whole routine of but do you love me ? do you still care? do you want us still? I know im an idiot i was being selfish but i was very insecure, she would not tell me anything about her she would say im not telling you my plans. My head manifested and i became very down and insecure id ask if shes okay? she wouldn't tell me? id ask if she has plans? she wouldn't say, id ask alot and get no answers, until one night she was like im out i have plans, i asked and asked who she's with and what she's up to if she's okay? and she wouldn't tell me at all then i get into my head why is'nt she saying? which lead to the "are you with another guy" i know im an idiot but with everything going on i just didn't even know what to think my self anymore, i knew she wasn't that person but it was in my head and i couldn't get it out.
the night we broke up i answered a call from someone from my old work, she was with her partner and she has kids, no romance what so ever we were actually the type to be like oh you alright dick head i hate you etc type relationship we were mean to each other as friends, she asked me how i was, how im getting on after my stroke and what im up to we had a long conversation. I told my gf at the time that i was talking to her, i hid nothing.
i woke up from a text from my gf saying how long was i speakign to her for? i showed her the call log, and she went mental saying how dare i speak to a girl the night of our breakup/break , like i was cheating on her? Like i did it to hurt her? no she was a friend, and she knew this, She hated me she didn't want anything to do with me, im a c**t im an a**hole im everything under the sun, she despised me i make her sick, she stopped talking to me.
This lead to us barely seeing each other , it stopped completely unless it was a appointment for our baby or her
she told me were no longer in a relationship and we're not trying at the moment , but who knows what the future holds. Which gave me hope? but then it still got worse from there.
i would forget things so dates, plans , i met a friend when i went to town and we went for a drink, i forgot to do something for her, she made out like that's the ultimate betrayal , like i wasn't reliable or trust worthy she couldn't trust or believe me. i changed a lot of my dogs habits when she arrived, and it was pointed out, which is true i wouldn't of changed my dog without her, it wasn't in a bad way? but because i didn't defend her saying it wasn't true that she things im unreliable i don't have her back.
she swears at me calls me such harsh words, like you're a c**t and f**k off i don't want to speak to you ever again, and im just like are you okay? is everything alright, what's the matter? I don't lash out at her, i don't swear at her i just... i care and love her too much to be an as*hole.
She didn't speak to me for a week, she told me were over completely she wants nothing to do with me and to f**k off , she just no contact, nothing, not one thing. i promised her i wouldn't drink, and i had a drink, over that period of the week because i felt the lowest i ever felt, i had given up really, i felt like nothing mattered.
she then contacted me asking if i spent money and what i spent it on , i could have lied? she wouldn't of known, but i told her the truth i said i had a drink, i brought take away's i didn't know what to do or how to function to be honest, i sort of reverted back to my old ways so to speak, she kept me level headed and made me want to better myself, then she left i felt like it didn't matter, she didn't care i felt sorry for myself. And i shouldn't have because im having a baby and i knew i was letting myself down but i was so depressed.
so i told her the truth and then she just basically said , you broke a promise, you are such an evil person you're scum you're nothing to me, she said we wasn't broken up but we was on a break ? But i told her no that's not what you were saying you said you didn't love me you didn't care about me, you hated me you this and that basically, and she was like no we was on a break.
now dude to all of this she is now telling me that im never getting a chance to be back with her, she wants nothing to do with me in a relationship never again , and no matter what i say or do it'll never change her mind. She wrote a pro and cons list and there's too many cons, ive done too much wrong and im such a bad person? She told her friends and they all agree that im bad for her, im such a nasty person and they see who i truly am??
but i don't think ive done enough to deserve all the hate and the harsh words? I spoke to some of my family and friends, and they don't think ive really done anything to deserve all this? Yes i made mistakes im not perfect no one is. But is this all deserved? do i deserve to be hated this much over this? I don't think ive left anything out but if i have ill add to it.
i think im just looking for an unbiased answer and an honest answer, if ive done wrong? ill accept that but i don't know? its all friends so they have a sort of duty to agree?
she is now only 15 weeks pregnant and i know i made mistakes, but i love her too much to let go? i can't abandon her, and i will never abandon our child, but i don't know what to do? Do i just give her time? or I just cut everything off and just be there for our child, because im lost.
she's younger than me, im m30 and she is f22, we have been together now for 7 months.
TL;DR; i feel like im being made out to be someone im not, i get abused but all i do is care and love her, and i don't think ive done anything to deserve this much hate, i don't want her to go and i don't know what i can do my heart is set on her but she feels im someone im not.

Hi everyone 🤍, i have an URGENT prayer request. I know how powerful prayer is and just like Jacob, I’m willing to wrestle till I get my breakthrough!
I am struggling a lot financially after moving home a week ago to the point where I worry about my heating which is a prepay meter and food. It gets exceptionally cold especially in the night & morning and can get below minus. I am looking for work but also in need of basic necessities such as a bed and fridge. Any food that I brought had spoiled because of the lack of a fridge which I need the most at the minute because without it, I will have to keep buying food more often than required which is another stress. I don’t need much and this is a factor that caused me a lot of additional stress because only around £40-£50. Even if I get called to attend a job interview I don’t have money for food let alone transportation. It’s all too much 😞because it’s so many things spiralling in my mind that I am worrying about but praying about.
I would like some prayers because it’s amazing what a prayer can do especially when in agreement. It’s such a difficult situation but I always remember “weeping may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning” Psalm 30:5. I don’t want to fall into the trap of depression, it’s a pit that is very difficult to get out of so I’m trying to remain in faith. I won’t stop praying because God said to call to Him & He would answer in Jeremiah 33:3 so please don’t stop praying in agreement with me 🤍.
God bless you all & thank you in advance for all the prayers.

2023.03.29 11:39 m2dentalvancouver What Are the Important Health Benefits of Dental Implants?

In general, not replacing your missing teeth is the biggest mistake you can ever make. No matter the cause of your missing teeth, it’s necessary to replace them as soon as possible. Many people lose their natural teeth due to a variety of reasons and don’t know how to start the process of replacing them. Fortunately, there are many different options available to replace missing teeth in the most natural and effective way possible. You can visit our experienced dentists at M2 Dental, using their professional recommendations to find the best way to restore your smile. People who overlook replacing their missing teeth face severe problems later, problems like shifted teeth, tooth infection, tooth loss, bone loss, etc. These days, dental implants are significantly popular due to their unique features and benefits. By visiting an implant dentist, you can understand whether you are a qualified candidate to start the treatment. Dental implants help keep your mouth and jaw healthy and prevent possible complications. Here are some main health benefits of getting dental implants to show how amazing they are.
Dental implants can prevent tooth cavities.
One of the most common dental emergencies that almost everyone experience is tooth decay. When you lose a tooth, the risk of dental cavities, periodontal disease and other dental problems significantly increase. Not replacing your missing tooth can make your other natural teeth shifted and crooked, more prone to dental cavities. It explains how dental implants can prevent tooth decay and dental cavities.
Dental implants protect your other teeth.
Besides dental implants, you have other tooth replacement options like tooth bridges or dentures. Typically, dental bridges require filling down your neighboring teeth before cosmetic crowns get placed. It can make the natural structure of your teeth weak, which many patients don’t find interesting. On the other hand, dental implants don’t damage the structure of your other natural teeth and keep them as healthy as possible.
As we mentioned, you have other tooth replacement options like dentures and bridges available. It’s so important to be able to speak like before after replacing your missing teeth. Generally, dentures can slip and slide around, which significantly affects the way you speak or chew. Fortunately, dental implants keep your dental restorations steady in place and make you able to speak without feeling weird or ashamed.
Dental implants can prevent further tooth and bone loss.
Your teeth are steady in their places by their roots. So, losing a tooth can make neighboring teeth loose and significantly damaged. Furthermore, tooth loss can damage your jawbone and weaken it over time. Your implant dentist can take X-ray images to understand how severe your condition is and whether you should be a bone and gum grafting candidate.

Dental implants make you feel confident.
Missing teeth negatively affect your confidence and make you feel shy when smiling. After replacing your missing teeth with implants, you start to feel more confident and not ashamed of showing your teeth. However, remember to have regular checkups and professional cleaning with a professional dentist to keep your implants shiny and healthy.
