2023.06.07 18:14 strik3r2k8 So how’s your main go-to server doing?

I feel like the one I’m going to is dying. I usually go in late once Im done with my day. It used to be packed but as of this past week it seems to dip in player count after 11 or 12. Interesting because I feel like it turns into a European server around this time since you get people coming in at 1AM(California time), saying good morning.
But ya, usually around a certain hour, players would drop, but then 30 minutes later it would pick up again(the European shift comes in).
But now it goes down to like 4 players and doesn’t refill.

Taking the week off work next week and am looking for things to incorporate into my routine to make good use of my time in the mornings predominantly.

2023.06.07 18:12 Dismal-Foundation-56 Doubts about sizing

Doubts about sizing
So I tried out the sizing kit and went for the size 8, but now I’m doubting if I need to go smaller. Any recommendations?
The 7 is a bit tight on the index and in the morning it leaves a bigger mark than the 8. But I can always move it to the middle finger where it is less tight. The 8 on the other hand I can’t really move to another finger because it’s looser on the middle and ring finger. Thumb knuckle is bigger than my index knuckle.
How do you know if you get good readings from the ring?
Thanks so much!!

2023.06.07 18:12 imadethisacctoask1q I Became The Family Nanny At 10 Years Old

It’s my family obligation to “raise” my siblings. Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve always loved babies. I have a soft spot for caring for cute, chubby babies. I guess that’s how I got assigned the job of raising my siblings. At 10 years old, I woke up every single morning at 4AM, to take care of my brother for 6 hours. Meanwhile, my mom was at work. My mom gave me no recognition, or any sort of appreciation for what I did. I was homeschooled so I was able to wake up early in the mornings. I gave up my childhood, my friends, my sleep schedule, my school, my entire life, to raise as a newborn baby. According to my mom, this was “normal.” I was just being an average, good big sister. I truly believed at 10 years old, based of what my mom had told me, that any sister would have given up their entire life to raise their brother. I thought it was normal to have a full time job as a nanny at 10 years old. I’m 15 now. I’m always the one babysitting my younger siblings on weekends. I never get paid, and if I ask to take a break, I’m called “lazy.” My mom is emotionally neglectful to my younger siblings. I don’t want anyone going through what I went through as a little kid, so this means I have to step up and take my mom’s place. I have to give the unconditional love I was never given. I comfort them when they’re sad, or if they get physically hurt. I’m the one that teaches them about empathy, emotions, kindness, morals, and healthy communication. A while back, I caught my sister (12) shoplifting. I tried to tell my elder siblings, aged 17 and 24. They told me it was my job, to just “deal with it.” I was trying to be a therapist, mom, and a sister all at once. The burden of my sister’s actions was placed onto me. I had everyone in my life giving me their advice, telling me I needed to help her more, I needed do this better, I needed to do that. It shouldn’t be my responsibility to handle my 12 yo sister with no help. I don’t want to put myself through any more anxiety and stress by trying to help my 12yo sister, but I feel pressured into doing so. The worst part of it all, is my sister treats me like garbage and refuses to listen to me. I feel awful admitting this, but I am so done. I was not the one who chose to get pregnant and have kids. My mom did. This should be her job. I shouldn’t be raising people less than 4 years younger than me. I never asked to be a mom. I love my siblings, but I want to be a sister. Not a mom.

2023.06.07 18:10 the1337g33k Announcement: Sub blackout and also a new temporary prohibition

Good morning everyone, we the mod team have a couple of announcements to make over the events that have transpired over the last couple days.
  1. Thanks to all of you who commented on the blackout thread. We weren't sure if there was support for it here and we were surprised to see near unanimous support from all your comments. With that in mind we have decided that the sub will be participating. I know the vote was a close one and you all were on the edge of your seats waiting for us to release the results. There's been some movement by reddit and attempts to clarify their position in the last day or so but as of writing this post the blackout is still on. We'll keep our ears out and see what transpires. If you missed the last announcement and have no idea what I am talking about, this thread explains it pretty well. The discord will remain up during the blackout.
  2. Secondly, we are temporarily prohibiting new posts about "middle finger man" aka David Saylor. You can mention him in comments if it's topically relevant. Also if he ends up becoming newsworthy again that will be allowed as well. We will work on setting up some auto mod rules to intercept posts about him or his antics. If any posts get through though, feel free to answer any questions and then report the post so we can remove it. We aren't making this a new rule, it's simply a temporary measure that really is more for his own good since we know he reads those threads and likes to try to respond to them. We do not intend to punish or ban anyone that violates this prohibition. We are simply removing posts only.

2023.06.07 18:10 coloradogal1 Detailed 12-Day Luxe Itinerary & Review

Hi all -
Since this sub was so helpful while planning my trip, I wanted to share my detailed 12-day itinerary, pricing and reviews for a luxe Bali trip. I lived there for three months 15 years ago on a student budget, so wanted to go back and experience it a bit differently.
Driver: I worked with Kadek at Pemuteran Menjangan Bali Transport. His prices were higher than a lot of other drivers, but of the drivers I reached out to prior to departure he was most responsive, easy to work with and made a ton of itinerary suggestions. His costs included all entrance fees, hiking guides, fast boat arrangements, as well as some lunches. Even though he was the most expensive driver I talked to, not having to plan out logistics every day and just hop in the car made the premium guide costs absolutely worth it in my mind. You can find him on TripAdvisor with the business name above, or I’m happy to share his whatsapp in a DM.
I had zero interest in riding a motor bike there, and saw at least one accident and someone at the airport who very distinctly looked like he had been part of a motor bike accident. Ironically, when we got home to the US we overheard someone at breakfast also talking about their friend who was involved in a motor bike accident in Bali.
High Level Agenda:
Ubud Bisma Eight, $1,100 USD for 4 nights including airport transit
Hotel impressions: This was a perfect mid-range priced hotel, central to the city center so a great place to walk around from, and probably had our favorite breakfasts during our stay. The vibe was modern, great views from the rooms and infinity pool, wonderful service. Absolutely would stay again.
Day 1 - Arrival / transit day, landed at 7pm, checked in around 9pm Day 2 - Ubud city center We planned this day just to wander around Ubud, lunch at Kafe, window shopping, bought some fruit at the art market. We intentionally avoided making plans this day, since we knew we’d want to acclimate and just enjoy walking around town. Day 3 - East Bali Tour with Kadek - 900k IDR per person including lunch, admissions, snorkeling tour * Snorkeling in Padangbai - Great snorkeling at two different spots * Tirta Gangga - Spent about 30 minutes wandering around the gardens, sitting down, enjoying the scenery. * Tukad Cepung Waterfall - Be prepared for lots of stairs, very cool waterfalls, def a “stand in line to take your photo” kind of experience but overall there weren’t too many people there while we were so didn’t have to wait too long. * Gates of Heaven - We opted NOT to do this, since we weren’t very interested in standing in a long line just for a manufactured photo opportunity. Day 4 - Mt Batur hike 1,050k IDR per person (cost also included hot springs, but we ended up skipping and just going back to Ubud to relax at the pool after the hike). Got socked in with clouds for sunrise, but honestly watching the clouds roll by was almost as enjoyable as a brilliant sunrise would have been. Hike is strenuous but doable, and you definitely want to hire a guide, since we heard at least one person getting harassed for not hiring a guide. Mixed feels on this, but overall it comes down to “respect the local customs and economy” for me. We were done and back to the hotel by 11 or so, and spent the afternoon relaxing by the pool and napping. Day 5 - Sites in and around Ubud, 795k with Kadek covering all admissions * Goa Gajah - Really cool temple that’s worth checking out to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and old stone temple carvings. Since we did this first thing, we had the place to ourselves. Be sure to check out the caves tucked along the river. * Gunung Kawi Temple - If you only visit one temple, personally, I recommend this one. Lots of stairs but it is STUNNING and you just feel like you’re surrounded by nature and spirituality. Both this trip and when I lived there 15 years ago, it’s one of my favorite spots in all of Bali. * Tegalalang Rice Terrace - Cool to see, but definitely felt like too curated of an experience. Felt like an amusement park located in a rice terrace. * Checked into Mandapa around 2pm so we could enjoy the resort for the full afternoon
Mandapa Ritz Carlton - $1,700 USD for 2 nights
Hotel Impressions: Holy heck, if you have the ability to splurge, do not miss this resort. I have never felt so spoiled or relaxed in my life. The spa was incredible ($400 for 90 minutes couples massage), the free morning yoga overlooked the river, and the service was absolutely unparalleled. The team there would greet you by name, the attention to details with the room - it was absolute perfection and I don’t think I will ever enjoy a resort this much again. It’s a little more removed from city center, but the resort is so beautiful we didn’t really feel like leaving anyway.
Day 6 - Resort day. Yoga, breakfast, massages, pool day - After spending the previous several days doing day trips, we left this as a day to just spend time relaxing, and I’m so glad we did.
Day 7 - Transit from Ubud to Sanur, with shopping stops on the way (650k per person)
Mas (wood carving), Batuan Village (painting gallery), Celuk (gold and silver smith). We wanted to get to Sanur the day before our Nusa Penida trip so we didn’t have to worry about being in a rush to catch the fast boat to Nusa Penida, and I really wanted to do some shopping anyway so it worked out well.
Sanur Klumpu Resort for $158 - Really loved this small villa style resort. Funky architecture, a little less curated feeling than the other resorts we stayed at, and would make for a really great extended stay place close to Sanur beach.
Day 8 - Sanur beach and fast boat to Nusa Penida. Spent the morning walking the path along the beach, stopping for breakfast and coffee, and enjoying the vibes without having an itinerary. Caught one of the last boats to Nusa Penida so we could get there in time for the 3 pm check in at Maua Nusa Penida
Nusa Penida
Maua Nusa Penida - $500 USD for 2 nights. 1,450k IDR for fast boat, nusa penida transit to / from port and beach tour day trips, again all arranged by Kadek.
Hotel Impressions - Newer hotel in Nusa Penida that’s a bit far away from any action, but the hotel was so nice to spend time in we didn’t mind just hanging out there in our private pool and eating at some of their restaurants. They had a special Indonesian Buffet which was actually some of the best food we had there as far as taste and quality went.
Day 9 - Nusa Penida Beach Tour Spent the morning touring Angel Billabong, Broken Beach, Angel Billagong and lounging at Crystal Bay. The sites were absolutely stunning, got some good photos but the iconic beach spots were SO crowded that I’m not sure it was worth it. Crystal Bay was great - very few people at the beach, so this was a nice way to spend a couple hours swimming and enjoying the scenery. Spent the afternoon relaxing at the hotel.
Jimbaran Bay / Uluwatu
Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay, $2,400 USD for 2 nights
Hotel Impressions: We chose to end our visit to Bali here, closer to the airport. There’s a reason this is considered one of the best beach resorts in the world. The villas were older than Mandapa, but the gardens and views were just beautiful. We really enjoyed our time here relaxing, using their beach lounge facility, and wandering around the gardens. The food at Sundara was good - but not memorable. I’d probably stick to just cocktails and snacks there rather than doing a full higher end meal.
Day 10 - Morning transit from Nusa Penida to Four Seasons. The original plan had been to go to Uluwatu for the fire dance, but it was unfortunately sold out. This was a huge bummer since I’d really been looking forward to this part, but we went straight to the hotel and didn’t mind having the day to relax there.
Day 11 - Four seasons resort day
Day 12 - Departure. Spent the morning and afternoon lounging around the resort. Four Seasons were very generous with a 3pm check out, but were happy to let us use the facilities, spa, pools, etc as long as we wanted to since our flight wasn’t until 10pm.
What I loved * Mandapa. We only did two nights and we very strongly considered canceling our Sanur night and staying an extra day. Will absolutely be back for a longer stay. * Sanur - we only had one morning to mosey along the beach, but next time I go back, I would add in three days here with no plans other than just wandering around. It was also great staying at less of a resort and more of a boutique villa that was a great home base. * Gunung Kawi - I explored this temple the first time I was in Bali, and knew I needed to come back.
What I wish I’d done differently * More time just wandering. We did a great job planning out day trips and balancing those with resort days to just relax and decompress, which was a great balance. However, I do wish we’d had more time to just… wander. We had a couple days or mornings like this, and they ended up being some of our favorite days. * Nusa Penida - Maybe I would have liked this more if we actually snorkeled or went diving. I loved the hotel we stayed at, and I suppose I’m glad I’ve been, but the beach tours were just so crowded and spread apart. It was a long day for just a few minutes at each spot. Next time we return, I’m skipping Nusa Penida and would probably stick to Nusa Lembongon or Sanur.

2023.06.07 18:10 gibbstopher When do I text him back?

I (m32) recently hooked up with someone after playing cat and mouse for few weeks. He (m27) and I met at a friends party where we bantered a little bit, but he eventually friend-zoned me that night! Even though I was friend-zoned, I sensed the tension but rolled with it anyway because—why not let’s play that game? Later that night I made him cry after he opened up to me telling me about his ex-boyfriend, and I supported and encouraged him. He clung to me like a moth to a flame the rest of the night.
Last weekend he came back into town for Pride. We were getting fairly close, and eventually starting kissing. I mentioned to him again that he put me in the friend-zone, to which he denied lol. I dropped him off at his friends house at the end of the night respectfully and playfully noting the friend-zoning, but also with genuine concern for not ruining a relationship with his friend who works with my best friend.
The next day, after having that open communication with his friend that I was crushing on him, we went to additional pride events where we began to drink and have a good time. He began to play the game of making me jealous, to which I did the same. I eventually left after realizing how long I was out and how drunk I got, and moments later he sent me a message on Instagram asking where I went. I walked back to the bar to get him, where we walked together to the hotel I booked (wasn’t going to drive after all that drinking) and told me about his future aspirations to have kids, get married, etc.
Naturally, at the hotel we had sex. It gets a little hazy because of how intoxicated we were (I definitely fell asleep because I was wasted, but made up for it in the morning). We got back to my car, where I got him a breakfast sandwich and dropped him off. It’s been two days since, and outside of viewing each others’ stories on Instagram…we haven’t actually talked.
As time passes on I’m hitting this wall of doubt and I’m unsure if I should make the first connect. I just don’t want things to go wrong, and it’s been so long since I felt EXCITED like this about someone else. I have the whole butterflies in the stomach and everything. Do I text him? Has it been too much time and is it too late? Give me advice!

2023.06.07 18:10 ta_ra_8yr Just adopted a puppy… things are not what we were expecting at all

Hi everyone! My partner and I currently live in a condo building with his grandmother (83, he helps her with tasks around the house and does errands for her), our 5 year old Pomeranian and our 10 year old cat. Both the cat and the dog moved in when I moved in as they were my pets beforehand. After being together for around 8.5 years, living together for about 3 years, my partner wanted a dog of his own to add to the family. My dog can be shy and will become very reactive towards a dog that gets too much in her face, so we were being very selective on what dog we would rescue.
My partner found a dog online through a local rescue. The dog is a 5 month old ACD who is deaf. We applied and answered each and every question honestly and thoroughly. We really wanted to make sure our lifestyle and home situation would benefit the puppy and keep our grandmother and pets at least somewhat comfortable. They asked who we live with, what our home situation is like and how the other pets in our home behave as well as what our daily schedule typically looks like.
Shortly after applying, we got scheduled for a phone interview. I was at work during the interview, but my partner told me about it. The adoption coordinator was talking about how this dog’s energy level was closer to moderate as my partner explained our dog’s current routine. We usually take her for 2 hour long walks, one in the morning, one at night. We also give her a lot of enrichment options throughout the day (puzzle feeders, sniff games, toys, activities, Kongs etc.) He explained that his grandmother lives with us, her age and health level (she has some balance and breathing issues) and that he is her full time caregiver. The coordinator told us that all of that should work well. They basically were singing this dogs praises. Talking about how well he is crate, house and leash trained, how gentle he is and how his energy level is a lot lower than other ACD, so everything should work great. My partner then had to speak to “the foster” who kept saying how much of a saint he was for being interested in this dog. They talked to the trainer we work with about my dog’s process with reactivity. They said how amazing it was that we never gave up on my dog. We found out after adoption that we didn’t even speak to the actual foster, but the head of the rescue that our rescue was partnering with.
We get approved, do a virtual house check which consisted of about a 2 minute FaceTime call and we get told to make payment upfront then pick up the dog the following Saturday. We arrive and he’s a bit rambunctious, but decently behaved otherwise. He was a huge sweetheart. As time has gone on, he is becoming a menace to us, his grandmother and my dog.
He SCREAMS in his crate immediately and non stop. He keeps launching himself at our grandmother and biting her, luckily she hasn’t been hurt yet. He antagonizes my dog unless we have him leashed and behind a baby gate, which is creating reactivity for her. He picked up our hand signals and training pretty quickly (I’m talking 2-3 reps of a signal - like sit or down and he’s got it flawlessly) but if he doesn’t want to do it, he will bark at us and then proceed to jump on us and bite us. I have bruises and scratches all over me. They told us he was very well leash trained, but he can barely walk on leash without attacking the leash or jumping and biting us.
We have been bringing him to the park at morning and at night to run on the longline. We have been giving him kongs, food related puzzle games and have been training non stop. He is just terrorizing us. My partner is so anxious about everything he isn’t sleeping more than a few hours a night just to be woken up super early by the dog screaming in his crate. He has lost 15 pounds because we don’t even have time to separate ourselves and have a meal. We aren’t spending any time together, he can’t help his grandma at all because he can’t have the dog around her and can’t get away from the dog either. Most of the time I’m trying to soothe and settle my dog or I’m working 8+ hour shifts. He doesn’t give us any warning about when he needs to go potty. He will just get up and pee in the house.
We are just extremely frustrated because this is not even close to what we were told about him. My partner gave them multiple opportunities to say this wouldn’t be a good fit , he told them he just wants the best for the dog and to make sure he’s happy and healthy. They convinced us this would be a great fit. My partner in particular is very frustrated, drained and he says he doesn’t even like the dog at this point and my partner is a HUGE dog person. He has only slept about 6 hours over the past 3 days because this dog is dominating every aspect of our lives. I am terrified to go to work on Friday and leave my partner here alone to deal with all of this. We are really at a loss and don’t know what to do.
We feel like we were screwed here. We were told that this dog behaves completely the opposite of how he does. We were convinced we were a perfect match but this is far from it. We don’t want to give up on the dog because he doesn’t deserve to be moved around over and over, but this is not what we were expecting at all based on the foster and adoption coordinators stories. We honestly just want the dog to be happy. This obviously isn’t making him happy. What should we do here? We have about a week to figure out if we want to give him back and get a refund. Otherwise, we’re SOL on getting back over $600 that we spent to adopt him. We really don’t want to give him back due to the fact that it’s going to be even harder for him to be adopted if he’s being moved around a bunch between different families, but this is becoming dangerous and stressful for everyone involved.

2023.06.07 18:09 Circuit_Deity De School Set Reports: 28/4 , 29/4, 5/5 and 3/6

Long overdue set reports! I promised one for Pariah’s set on 5/5 a while ago and never followed through - here they all are, spurned by my return to our favorite basement after a month abroad. Consider it a miracle that I recall enough to write this up 😵‍💫
Friday 28/4:
Arrived at around 2:30am, and stood in the no tickets line as always(I find it is usually shorter and quicker than getting a ticket). My favorite selector there(sassy, “let’s see those IDs loves!), and in within 10 minutes.
My roommate, partner and I first spent some time in the garden smoking and socializing, but quickly made our way down for Orphx, who were finishing up their set - a bit slower(134bpm?), hypnotic, great live set and loved watching those two work in unison. Nothing that got me into stampede mode but nice to hear a bit more of a classic Detroit sound in the basement.
UVB took over and things began to blur for us - the M my partner and I had taken earlier started to make itself known and we fell into the groovy trap UVB set for us. Dancing separately but as one, feeling like you’re the only person dancing in your own little black hole on the dance floor. Such a lovely feeling opening your eyes when the beat gets harder and seeing the crowd writhe together.
Around 6am I was helping a person clean up their bottle that fell from the front right bass boxes when a friend in their group(clad only in a full body harness, you were v hot btw) offered me a wet wipe as a return favor. His smile was so genuine and lovely, and the wet wipe revived me! Such a nice little moment on that dance floor, it’s these kind of moments I seek out on these nights 🖤
Refreshed and full of love, we kept dancing until close, UVB delivering a booming, relentless set without it getting tiring. Seeing DJs like him playing reminds one that certain people just have the ability to master a soundsystem - kick after kick without it getting mushy and boring.
A lovely closing and a nice bike ride home - first one for me this year where the weather was warm and beautiful. A little joint and lots of rest to close out my consciousness for the day.
Garmin watch step count: 48,512
Saturday 29/4:
Rested a little and brought my partner to Schiphol, attended a fun BBQ in Leiden, and then return to Amsterdam with an itch to dance again. UVB’s closing had left me unsatisfied and with a need for more untz untz.
Arrived again around 2am, same situation as the night before. Met an Irish couple in the line(I say couple tentatively as they claim they’d broken up a month before but were still all over each other), and gave them some leftover party favors before making an Irish exit(like a magical drug fairy).
Went downstairs to Ben Sims shepherding the floor into a raucous scene - wonderful crowd that evening, who were all letting go completely. I joined a group up front who I see often(tall femme person with leopard print hair, lingerie top to bottom, tall skinny masc with slicked back hair and 00’s style Oakleys - forgot your names if you guys are on here!), and danced danced danced.
Kerrie took over for Ben around 5 but I felt the groove wasn’t there; she played very hard, a bit too much, and the bass felt very muddled. The type of techno you’d get at Verknipt - fun to dance hard to for a little while, but unsustainable. Nonetheless, I stayed until closing, driven by some kind of stubborn determination to see the night out twice in one weekend.
On my way out, I saw the Irishman I’d met earlier, standing sadly by the bathroom entrances. He’d been shrugged off by his companion, and was distraught. Gave him a hug and a pep talk, and cycled home. A kind of melancholy reminder that not everyone has a good night.
Garmin watch step count: 24,337
Friday 5/5:
Was very ready for this one! Had felt soooo shit the previous week after my double header, so when I woke up Friday with the dance bug, I knew it was meant to happen. Enlisted my roommate/trusty dance partner to join me, and we arrived a bit early, 12:30am or so. Did so because I wanted to catch the tail end of Loek Frey, who I’ve become quite interested in, seeing some of his online sets.
He was playing a slow, hypnotic set, full of bleeps, bloops, and intertwined melodies. Great slow start in the basement - sound was good and I’d love to see him play a later slot in DS sometime! Just know he was holding back some banging because of the time slot.
After a toilet and smoke break my roommate and I decided to stay upstairs for Roi Perez’s set - what a lovely decision! It truly felt like a night at Pano where everyone is happy, celebrating, in unison. People waving and smiling at each other from across the room, Roi gleefully leading us into the morning. If you were there and you saw a tall, black haired man losing it on the raised podium, that was me. There was a moment went Roi transitioned into a song(ID unsure) with heavy gospel vocals, and the light person took the cue and suddenly the bright yellow spotlights flooded him with light from behind - a moment I’ll never forget. He appeared like some kind of angel of techno, delivering us to hedonism and salvation.
After he finished, with light peeking in the windows behind, my roommate and I thought about leaving on a good note and skipping the migration down to the basement - but we stayed, and I’m so glad we did.
Pariah was still in his first hour downstairs, keeping it easy and danceable, but not apocalyptic. However, this quickly changed. The last two hours downstairs were the most insane sonic experience I’ve never had the pleasure of witnessing. It was like what we had just experienced upstairs had gone to the dark side; a seething, undulating mass of noise that shouldn’t have been music but yet made us DANCE!
Pariah showed us what an absolute master of sound design he is - I felt like there were times he wasn’t even selecting a track, just isolating the perfect different waves and then slowly combining them into an overwhelming beat that drove the crowd crazy. So many moments that night when insanity broke out - cheering, stomping, arms all in the air. It was like he was playing a live set in the style of Stef M, but on CDJs. Unbelievable.
When the set ended, the crowd cried for more and he cried back “I’ve run out of tunes!” I saw more people come up to him after and thank him for the set than I’ve ever seen for another DJ there before(myself included). My best club night ever, by far.

Saturday 3/6
I’d said in a thread here that I was going the night before, but my roommate and I weren’t feeling it after roomie night with the others, so we saved our energy for Saturday.
Usual time of arrival, around 1:30am; walked right in - also the first time I’ve had one of the security guards make a comment about the stickers on my phone case(“Ik hoef t niet voor jou te uitleggen, hé?”). Felt good, haha.
Went straight downstairs right when DJ Shahmarab was handing off to Crystallmess - who demonstrated good DJ skills but I felt not a great connection with the dance floor. It seemed we were all eager to get into a dance trance, but they kept transitioning to very hip-hoppy edits and it was hard to get into a groove. An interesting style to hear in the DS basement, but not really my thing. Thusly my roommate and I spent a good part of this set socializing upstairs in the garden.
Went back down to catch Juliana Huxtable, and felt a similar style, but with more extended periods to dance - a bit more boomy and thumping with more classic techno elements. Danced until around 6:30 when our bodies told us it was time to head home!
Overall not as notable as the aforementioned nights, but still fun to be there on a quieter night, and I saw my friends(leopard print/oakleys) again!
Garmin step count: 38,970
Now really looking forward to SPFDJ this weekend and Het Weekend later this month!
Love to hear if any of you guys were also at these nights and have similar or contrasting experiences!

2023.06.07 18:09 petting2dogsatonce Air quality and pups in the park

Hey y’all, I mentioned this in another thread but felt it deserved its own post.
Air quality throughout the region is noticeably bad. As we probably all know, smoke from Canadian wildfires is drifting down here. What we might not all know is that wildfire smoke is not just unpleasant to breathe, it’s absolutely fucking terrible for you to breathe. I urge anyone going to the park tonight to wear a good face mask and even bring a backup and stay well hydrated (your skin and eyes will thank you).
I also urge anyone intending to participate in pups in the park tonight to please consider leaving the pups at home. They will not as readily show signs of distress but breathing that smoke in is just as bad for them as it is for us, and they don’t have the benefit of a mask or being able to leave if it gets bad for them. Please do not take your dogs to the park tonight. Please ask your friends to do the same if you know anyone planning to bring their dogs tonight. While most of this is probably pretty obvious, here’s a link discussing wildfire smoke and animals.

2023.06.07 18:08 Njdevilmn Thinking about coming to Fenway for the 1st time….

Good Morning, Mets fan coming in peace. Yes I know they suck….lol. I’m thinking about coming to Fenway for the Saturday afternoon game with my wife and daughter when the Mets visit in July. I visited Boston in the late 90s for a couple of days with my GF (now wife) and had a great time.
My questions are any suggestions on places to stay that are decent but don’t completely break the bank. Also once I find a place to stay if it’s a little way from Fenway what is the best way to get to Fenway from the hotel if it’s not really walking distance, Uber? I know the T is there but I am not familiar with the lines at all. Thank you for any assistance.

2023.06.07 18:07 newyork0120 This Could Be The Worst Song Ever Made (Part 1)

Well, after months of anticipation, the new Little Mermaid film finally released to theaters. As expected the film is garbage, and I can offer that review despite not seeing it for the same reason that I don't need to go order a Whopper at the new Burger King down the street in order to assess the quality of the food. I already know that the fries will be lukewarm and soggy; the bun on the burger will also be soggy; the Mayo will be scalding hot because they put the whole thing in the microwave; and the entire meal will be 3,500 calories, but I'll still be hungry 45 minutes after eating it because the food is made out of congealed grease and has no substantive nutritional value. I also know that the employee who serves me the food will scowl at me because he hates every customer who commits the sin of trying to patronize the establishment where he works; he'll also speak in a barely audible mumble so that I have no idea whether he even got my order or not: and then when the food comes out, it'll be clear that he didn't get the order right, but I'll just leave with the wrong order because it's not worth the trouble of trying to get a practically cataconic customer service worker to correct the mistake without making additional mistakes on top of it. That is the Burger King experience no matter which location you happen to be patronizing, and the same goes for Disney's cash grab remakes and for almost everything that Disney produces, even if they aren't remakes because after all, it's not like Disney ONLY makes remakes - they also make sequels, and they make sequels to remakes, and they make remakes of sequels.
Altogether, Disney is the fast food of the cinematic world: they churn out the same sludge over and over and over again, there is no creativity, there is no artistic inspiration, nobody involved has any love or interest for or in the projects that they're working on. That's the point: NOBODY involved in it actually CARES about the story. The people involved in The Little Mermaid remake had all the creative passion as the guy working the fry machine at the Burger King. It's the same kind of thing. Disney isn't TRYING to tell great stories anymore. They're just pumping out content for the masses and things for us to mindlessly consume, that's all they care about. That's how I know The Little Mermaid is bad: because there's not one single person involved in the project who cares about making it good.
I also know it's bad because the reviews say so - and it's not that I trust what reviewers say of course, it's that I trust what they DON’T say. You can't tell much about a movie by reading what the critics write, but you can often tell everything you need to tell by reading what's in between the lines, and in this case, the reviewers have generally agreed that The Little Mermaid is derivative and pointless and unnecessary and dull, and it has dreary animation and some subpar voice acting, yet they've given the film high marks anyway based on the sensational performance of the lead actress Hallie Bailey. The critics, they wouldn't dream of outright panning a film starring a black Little Mermaid. They have to find a way to like it, otherwise, they'll be racist. And these are always the most damning reviews: not the ones where critics give the film a thumbs down, but the ones where they're contorting themselves into all kinds of ungodly shapes in order to find a way to NOT give it a thumbs down.
Though some critics were more forthright in their criticism. The New York Times review from film critic Wesley Morris does praise the movie, of course, for its diversity and noble intentions, but it says that it's missing some things - specifically, Morris laments that the story lacks “joy, fun, mystery, risk, [and] flavor”. And that all makes sense so far - Disney content engine is specifically designed to avoid risk and instead produce fun content that is entirely devoid of fun. But Wesley goes further. He also says that “kink” is missing. Yes, Wesley Morris of the New York Times feels deeply wounded that the new Little Mermaid movie is not kinky. It apparently does not highlight any deviant sexual practices. There are no fetishes put on display or even discussed. And Morris is surprised by this, I guess. Those of us who have seen Disney trajectory in recent years may be sort of surprised by it too, but the difference is that we are pleasantly surprised, whereas Morris grieves. He can't believe, he's so sad that there's no kinkiness in The Little Mermaid.

2023.06.07 18:07 eijisawakita U6-LR 5 Ghz disconnecting suddenly

Hello. I have my U6-LR running good for a long while now, maybe 1 year without issues. I notice even before, when connecting to 5 Ghz, it would take a few seconds before in shows on my wifi list, but it always connects, auto connects, and stays connected.
This morning, I woke up without wifi. I couldn’t find it on my wifi list. I restarted my AP via console (Ubuntu app). It connected for a at least 5 mins, then it lost signal, and I couldn’t connect to it. No problems with my 2.4 Ghz.
I have OpenWRT x86_64 VM as my router. Is my AP 5ghz radio failing? Or could a setting on the router affect it? Please help. Thanks

2023.06.07 18:05 SpunChii Modern combat overhaul - MCO

So i downloaded this combat overhaul mod (which basically is just an animation mod) I made a new save. First impression and still is, is that the animation does look pretty good. The issue i am having is that every attack takes about 2 seconds to finish. Might not seem to bad, but you are completely immobilized during this time and as such an easy target.
Not only is it frustrating to be completely stuck after each attack but it makes dodge mods redundant, seeing as how you can't move. This mod effectively turns the combat system into a turn based combat system. Well at least for you and the one you are dueling, most of the time there are more than just one enemy that you are fighting. As you could imagine, this slows the combat down massively and increases your chances of dying.
I would not recommend this mod to anyone until they have resolved this issue.

2023.06.07 18:05 Farideh_ They were sh*t

Good morning,
That group you sent me to turns out to have a God complex or race issues? Today I was not permitted to see if they responded to me yesterday. If they have issues with race, gender, or ethnicity, they should take that to a therapist. Come to think of it, none of the people are brown/black/indigenous/Asian. No friends, no access to READING their sh*t even if you have had is a question which I don't think was answered. Oh well....

Before yesterday's treatment, the doctor had to do a midway questionnaire, and I'm scared. What if this doesn't work? It will be ECT. I wish I had not agreed to this because this is a protocol. I meet with ANOTHER attorney on the 20th. I am going to this apprehensive. They are dragging this case as long as they can. It retraumatizes me. The last one wanted intimate details.
I just needed to rant. I wanted to have a proper rant. Remember, you do things out of desperation, you get desperate results. Look at the cost. They have four series right now but they are doing the pink "you can't sit with me"
