Island of light dig spot

Adventure, drama, action...with a spot of light roleplaying

2015.01.22 02:02 Adventure, drama, action...with a spot of light roleplaying

This is a subreddit for a roleplaying game set in the Star Wars universe, set just after the Jedi Civil War in the Knights of the Old Republic video game. Don't worry - the different eras of Star Wars are so interchangeable that it's not really that different from the technology and society in the movies. Jedi good, Sith bad. There's a big Empire being assholes to everybody and the Republic would rather they weren't, that sort of thing.

A small, amorphous blot will appear in the eye. It looks similar to an afterimage from a bright light. i.e., the sort of spot you get when you catch a glimpse of the sun, or stare at a bright light for too long. If it sticks around too long, it becomes a blind spot. Please share your information and experiences about this disease.

2023.06.05 15:27 Beneficial-Hat-9050 I lost the genetic lottery and want to accept to live the rest of my life without a romantic relationship.

I am not at all a woman who is conventianally attractive by society standards.
I am genetically inferior because i am too short (5'1) which was a major deal breaker for all the men i met, no matter what height they are. I am also of arabic desent, which even worsens my case.
I wasn't so popular in HS. In fact I was constantly bullied by both girls and boys. At one point one bully genuinely tried to kill me by "accident".
I was never felt desirable in any shape or form.
In my 20s the only men who had "interest" in me were the "pump and dump" types, which i could luckily spot way before it was too late.
I was never picked to be a girlfriend in the full term. According to them I am not enough for them to meet my/their parents .
I have also been lied to about the idea that men care about women's kindness than about their appearance. I've been told to remain virgin until mariage because thats what makes a "good" wife. I was raised by two parents who were very poor in the beginning and they taught me that I should look past a man's finances and focus on who he is.They also tauht me other good values like loyalty and nurture and compassion and patience.
However, when i hear men claim they hate goldiggers and abusers and cheaters, I just find it harder to believe them because they still go for those women. And still prefer them just because they are tall and pretty.
I felt lied to my entire life. and I no longer can trust society/men at this point.
I will soon be 32 and I am at a point of my life where I am sick and tired of being gaslight into thinking that there is someone for me, because there isn't. Even if there was, he is probably ran out of his options and just wants a bangmaid by settling for a shortie like me.
I refuse to be treated as men's last option, I want to be at peace of staying alone forever. Which is why I am asking you what can I do to develop a framework of life where the existence of a boyfirend/husband is not necessary.
I always dreamed of getting married and found a family, ever since I was 6 years old. And I am aware that this won't happen because of my appearance, no matter how fit and healthy I am, now matter how kind, empathetic and loyal I am.
I am also aware that removing that longtime-wished dream is very difficult. If you have been throught the same thing, how did you do to forget about dating life and live a fulfilling existence?
Thank you in advance.

2023.06.05 15:27 The_Lone_Apple The Last Man on Earth: Three Eps in, I'm Hooked.

I passed on this series in first-run but was one of those things where on a Sunday night I decided to see what it was all about.
First of all, that moment where it's 2020 that the epidemic takes place and a viewer in 2023 goes, "Whoa." Other than that, I right off the bat enjoyed the "empty" America vibe that the show creates. It's very well-done. Will Forte does a good job portraying a dude who has lost his marbles after realizing he's all alone. Kristen Schaal is terrific as someone who is just as nuts but in a different way. The commentary about relationships is on-point even though presented in a surreal way.
I just got to the cliffhanger where January Jones shows up so I'm looking forward to binging the rest of the series. Not sure why I never gave this a shot when it was on but it's the kind of odd sort of sitcom that I've always enjoyed. Like I said, surreal like Gilligan's Island or Green Acres.

2023.06.05 15:27 Kinmuan YSK: Recent Reddit Policies may kill 3rd Party Apps and negatively impact our Subbreddit

Following is a common text going around to make users aware of the current situation:

What's going on?

A recent Reddit policy change threatens to kill many beloved third-party mobile apps, making a great many quality-of-life features not seen in the official mobile app permanently inaccessible to users.
On May 31, 2023, Reddit announced they were raising the price to make calls to their API from being free to a level that will kill every third party app on Reddit, from Apollo to Reddit is Fun to Narwhal to BaconReader.
Even if you're not a mobile user and don't use any of those apps, this is a step toward killing other ways of customizing Reddit, such as Reddit Enhancement Suite or the use of the old.reddit.com desktop interface.
This isn't only a problem on the user level: many subreddit moderators depend on tools only available outside the official app to keep their communities on-topic and spam-free.

What's the plan?

On June 12th, many subreddits will be going dark to protest this policy. Some will return after 48 hours: others will go away permanently unless the issue is adequately addressed, since many moderators aren't able to put in the work they do with the poor tools available through the official app. This isn't something any of us do lightly: we do what we do because we love Reddit, and we truly believe this change will make it impossible to keep doing what we love.
The two-day blackout isn't the goal, and it isn't the end. Should things reach the 14th with no sign of Reddit choosing to fix what they've broken, we'll use the community and buzz we've built between then and now as a tool for further action.
What can you do?
  1. Complain. Message the mods of /reddit.com, who are the admins of the site: message reddit: submit a support request: comment in relevant threads on /reddit, such as this one, leave a negative review on their official iOS or Android app- and sign your username in support to this post.
  2. Spread the word. Rabble-rouse on related subreddits. Meme it up, make it spicy. Bitch about it to your cat. Suggest anyone you know who moderates a subreddit join us at our sister sub at /ModCoord.
  3. Boycott and spread the word...to Reddit's competition! Stay off Reddit entirely on June 12th through the 13th- instead, take to your favorite non-Reddit platform of choice and make some noise in support!
  4. Don't be a jerk. As upsetting this may be, threats, profanity and vandalism will be worse than useless in getting people on our side. Please make every effort to be as restrained, polite, reasonable and law-abiding as possible.

edit: Open Letter regarding API pricing

/Army Response Details

For the sub itself, the botting I do will remain under the treshhold.
The 3rd Party Apps are the bigger deal. This will impact our moderation across the team, and impact how users access the sub.
We will not be going dark or setting the sub to private. In past instances we've reinforced the sentiment that we place a premium on remaining Open to meet community needs.
That being said, I would encourage that if your post or comment can wait a day or two and not be posted during the 'protest' time (12 JUN), please do so.
We will be stickying this post for the next week or so, as we do believe this issue warrants attention from everyone using reddit.

2023.06.05 15:26 xScorchx Looking for C&C on a genderless character introduction.

Hey all. I write small snipits, usually game and theme setting material. In a group I'm with now, there is an individual who has chosen to be a genderless character. I'm trying to reveal their origin to the group and in this setting the characters share their origins as memories. This person wanted me to write something for them and I'm having a bit of difficulty.
Specifically I don't know how to write a genderless story. I think I have a decent starting point but I'm worried I'm overlooking something on that front.
Additionally, with the added constraints in how I need to write this. I want to make sure the introduction sounds good by itself as well. I don't want to get too bogged down in the genderless writing aspect and make a weaker piece.
Looking for any comments and critique related to what I've come up with. Hopefully about either the genderless language or the intro itself. But anything is welcome!
They came across a sound. A soft scrape, as though the wind had shifted. The world was still. Every instinct told them danger was near and they needed to move. As silently as they could muster, they slid back into the shadows. In the stillness, they heard the scrape again, closer, as though shifting its focus to their new position. The towering hulks of trees formed a looming wall of observers in the small clearing. Breathlessly, endlessly, they waited. Just when they resigned to move, believing the sound was indeed the wind in the still night, they saw it. A flicker of movement, a slight coloration, and light. Soft at first but growing as it revealed itself. Standing before them was a stag, majestic in its existence and unapologetic for the nobility it conveyed. Stark white with moss covered points towering with its size into the overhead. As though they were merely a curiosity, it strolled forward. Each step conveying a silence and majesty unknown to them. As it reached where they hid, frozen in the gaze of the being before them, they remembered. A memory, fuzzy with age, yet powerful in conviction. A tale long of the forest. A way to inherit its will. Having the conviction of understanding they moved. Slowly and deliberately, they emerged to face it. As they stood, vulnerable in the light of it, it spoke. Not of words and language, but emotion and will. They felt its will, its pain, and its anger. Terrible anger filled with rage, pain, and loss. Images of sacrifice and mercy filled their existence. Then, as if a dream, the silence returned. With the message given, it took its leave. Unbothered and unhurried, it continued its travel through the trees as was its right. They understood. They understood who they were and what they must do.
Thanks for giving this a read!

2023.06.05 15:26 jesster-day Not sure if it could be gastritis but I’m super anxious about it

Hey guys, 2 weeks ago I got a sharp sudden pain right under my breast on my right side at nighttime after having ate a burger and went to bed. It was fast and it went away but I felt discomfort after, the next day I still felt the discomfort but it went away by the time I went to bed then was fine for a few days. Then it came back when I went to the movies and ate popcorn, went away again, came back again 2 days ago and I’ve had it ever since. When it’s gone away I don’t get triggered by anything, I mostly eat a lot of chicken and veggies/rice because I got to the gym and I have to eat protein all the time, but sometimes I’ll have heavier meals, went to eat stake at a stakehouse and that didn’t flare it up. I notice it’s after I would eat the popcorn from the movies or potato chips or things like that. I worry that it’s my gallbladder but I’m not sure. The pain isn’t always on the same spot and it moves around sometimes but generally it’s been on the right then radiates toward my back and for the most part it’s right under the breast basically on the ribs and not below them. Feel gassy when it happens as well. I was on birth control for a month and it was giving me awful heartburn so I stopped it and it helped, but it threw my period off and I didn’t get it for a month, then when I got it again my gastric problems flared up pretty bad (they usually do when im menstruating). I’m having tons of anxiety over it and I hope it’s not my gallbladder because I don’t even have insurance and can’t afford surgery. I’m speaking to my doctor about it on Wednesday, just wanted to know if anyone has had similar experiences. Thanks!

2023.06.05 15:26 Practical_Aioli9269 Tideman print_winner() function is broken

Hi all.
After spending more time than I'd care to admit on this, I finally managed to write a recursive lock_pairs() function that passes all the test cases. I was elated because I thought that the print_winners() function would be a joke compared to it, but I've run into another problem that I can't crack.
I wrote my print_winners() function such that it parses the locked graph from left to right, column by column, and as soon as it comes across an empty column, it returns the name of the candidate corresponding to that column. In the case of 2 empty columns, it returns the first empty column.
// Print the winner of the election void print_winner(void) { // TODO // The first column with zero "true" entries in the locked grid corresponds to the winner of the election for (int column = 0; column < candidate_count; column++) { if (check_empty_column(column) == 0) { printf("%s \n", candidates[column]); return; } } }
Here's the check_empty_column() helper function:
// Return -1 if the column isn't empty, return 0 if the column is empty (has no "true" entries) int check_empty_column(int column) { for (int row = 0; row < candidate_count; row++) { if (locked[row][column] == true) { return -1; } } return 0; }
I've been using https://tideman.netlify.app to come up with more test cases, and the one I've been using for a lot of my work is:
  1. ABCD
  2. ABCD
  3. BCDA
  4. CDBA
  5. DABC
  6. DCAB
  7. BCDA
  8. DCAB
According to the site, this specific election gives David as the winner. However, when I run my code, it says that Charlie wins. I poked around with debug50 and discovered that my print_winners() function isn't the problem, my locked graph is. If you run the test case on the site, their sorted pairs end up being (3,0), (0,1), (1,2), (2,0), (2,3). The last 4 pairs are all tied in terms of strength of victory, so according to the problem specifications (which say that tied pairs don't need to be sorted), they should be interchangeable. But my program ended up with a different sorted pairs list, and thus a completely different locked graph, which leads to a completely different candidate being chosen as the winner.
I'm so confused because again, ALL my functions pass ALL their test cases according to check50 (besides print_winner(), which fails both), so like 90% of my code should be correct. But if it was, wouldn't I end up with the same result as the site gives? This is so different from the other issues I've faced with this pset because it seems like the problem specification itself is wrong. That's probably not the case though, so I must be missing something. Can anyone shed some light on this?

As the title says, as me and my fiance were driving home around 1230 in the afternoon yesterday, we saw a guy in a wheelchair just chilling in the middle of the road. He was backing up very slowly, and looks like he was trying to get people to hit him? Anyone know what happened to him?

2023.06.05 15:26 music_preneur_15 Favorite Client Support Platform? HubSpot or …?

So I have a small business in the helpdesk business. We service our clients AND their customers. (We know their software better than they do, so we support both sides)
To keep it simple, we gave our clients and their customers the same inbox. We serve about 20 clients and 8000 of their customers. Not a bad gig.
But.. we need to update our ticketing process. We’re using HelpScout, and it’s costly and not very versatile. It’s easy to use, but.. we can’t categorize tickets and apply templates.
It also falls short in a few ways: we have zero visibility for our clients to collaborate (they can’t log in and help us close tickets by local managers) and we can’t necessarily link the ticket to the customer profile in our crm (currently clickup as a working MVP)
I’m looking at Jira, AzureDevops, Front, ClickUp (for tickets), and the usual HubSpot and ZenDesk.
Any suggestions on the use-cases I’ve described?
Thanks In advance

2023.06.05 15:26 OMGZwhitepeople Way to confined any application across 2 of my 4 monitors.

Is there a simple solution that will confined applications into specific monitors on my host? Note I am using Windows 10 on my client host.
Background on why I want this:
I am using an application called NoMachine, which is a remote access client / server application (kind of like RDP but with more features).
Its a great application, however it is not able to full screen a 2 monitor server across more than 2 screen client properly. My server has 2 screens, my client host has 4. You maybe wondering "Why not just expand the screen across the two monitors by dragging it to resize it like any application". Well yes, that kind of works, but NoMachine still has its tool bar showing and the resolution will not match my screen. NoMachine has a way of performing a real FullScreen and matches the resolution on the clients monitor, but only does it on "ALL SCREENS", which will warp an stretch it across all 4 of my monitors.
There are two work arounds I have found:
1) Perform multiple client connections to each monitor. This works, but is unstable, and dragging between monitors is not great.
2) Spin up a program that can force NoMachine to only run on 2 of my 4 monitors. Example, VMware Workstation. I only did this for troubleshooting, but it works. In VMwareWorkstation I can expand a VM between multiple monitors of my choosing, and this tricks NoMachine to thinking it can only use 2 of my monitors. However, this is not practical. I don't want to have to emulate another kernel to accomplish this. What is worse, clipboard stops working when trying to run NoMachine in the other kernel.
So I am looking for something like option 2, but retains clipboard and is more light weight.
Any ideas?

2023.06.05 15:26 AgitatedFill Need help with coolant advice

Hey folks, I’m new to the caddy club. Excited to be here, I’ve wanted a Caddy for ages and recently bought one. The engine temp light started flashing recently and alerted me to the fact that my coolant needed topping up.
My research is telling me that it’s not good to use regular coolant on VW parts because of the ingredient ethylene glycol, which will degrade the gaskets in my system. All recommendations (and the label on my reservoir tank) say G12, yet when I try to find more information on this coolant, it is apparently made from “monoethylene glycol” and seems to be exactly what I’m being told not to get.
Does anyone have any insight they can share?

2023.06.05 15:26 vncortez História 6.4 e para onde ela vai?

Para onde acham que a história vai? Agora que a batalha contra o Golbez aconteceu e o Warrior of Light se provou mais forte. Mas, mesmo vencendo, ele conseguiu fundir a Azdaja (irmã de ninhada do vtra) com o zodiak da reflexão do 13o. Será ela vai funcionar como o Elidibus), como mente do zodiak.
Outra dúvida que existe é: será que em outras reflexões, o ether do zodiak se manteve nas duas respectivas silver moons. Ou, será que o próprio conceito do ether ter se mantido seja por, no 13o. não existir a morte definitiva ou eather sea para as almas voltarem.
De qualquer jeito, foi possível atravessar as reflexões, com uma quantidade imensa de ether pega na dungeon aetherfont. Será que o problema sempre foi ter muuuuito ether para conseguir passar entre reflexões?
Uma coisa que nunca ficou clara sobre isso, pelo menos eu nunca vi, foi o porquê não pedimos ajuda ao G'raha Tia sobre essas questões de reflexões. No fim das contas ele foi para um reflexão totalmente diferente e de elemento disfavorável. A luz, ao contrário da escuridão que tenta ir para the source a todo momento, é regida pela estagnação. Mas, mesmo assim, como exarca do cristal, ele conseguiu levar o Warrior of Light para lá, além da cristal tower.
Além disso, o G'raha, provavelvemente, é o que tem mais conhecimento. Por ele ter, do zero, conseguido ter feito a "convocation" que o Azem fazia e o WoL faz a cada Trial. O porquê da Y'shtola não discutir isso com ele, eu não entendo.
Mas, de qualquer forma, nós estamos cumprindo as coisas que o Emet-selch havia falado visitar outras reflexões e ver como elas estão e encontrando os deuses. Porém ainda existem partes que não fizemos. O patch mal chegou, e não vejo a hora do próximo para ver como as coisa vão ficar!!!

10gal betta that we’ve had almost two years. Ruby started being lethargic and resting in abnormal spots about 36hr ago and then this morning (6/5) I noticed this weird spot. When I open the top of the tank he still swims up excited for food but when he notices I’m not feeding him he’ll just sink back down and settle. I’m waiting for the fish shop to open soon so that I can take Ruby’s water for testing and hopefully get something to help him feel better.

2023.06.05 15:25 PeaceDolphinDance What is childhood technology usage like in Germany?

Hello, it’s me again! I previously asked about what it is like to raise American children in Germany, and I got tons of helpful thoughts and resources. My family is still considering this move as an option, but I wanted to ask an even more specific question.
It would probably not surprise anyone to know that as a child therapist and (former) classroom teacher, my wife and I are extremely concerned about the rising screen addiction in American children, and its links to various mental health issues. One of the biggest drives for us to consider alternative places to live is the thought that maybe somewhere else it would be easier to raise our kids with a “screen-light” lifestyle.
What are things like in Germany among the youth? Is it just as bad there, are kids and teens completely addicted to phone, computer, and tablet usage? Or is it better? I’d appreciate especially the insights of those who have lived elsewhere and can compare Germany to other cultural norms.

2023.06.05 15:25 rkuchiki123 Sometimes I feel confident he likes me back, other times I don't

I joined this friend group a few months ago and have been crushing on this one guy. I noticed at first that even though he's pretty friendly, he was quieteshyer around me. He'd stare at me from a distance and look away when I looked back. He also seemed to comfortably touch everyone but me. For example, one time all of us went clubbing and stood in a circle, putting our arms around the people next to us. We were next to each other and he threw his arm around the other person and not me. It wasn't because we didn't know each other well, since he'd do that with people he just met. I wondered if he disliked me, but he always seemed engaged when we talked, laughed at my jokes, and remembered a lot of things I said.
Then, one night, he messaged the group chat about a concert and I ended being the only person to go with him. It was a little awkward at first, but we ended up having a good time getting to know each other. We have a lot in common. At the end, he told me to let him know about any concerts I want to attend and seemed to linger. Since then, he's gotten more comfortable with eye contact, lightly touching me when appropriate etc. Occasionally, he initiates conversation/jokes, though still not to the same extent as others. Sometimes it feels like he waits for me to talk to him, since he might stand near me conversing with someone else, but as soon as I say something, he turns to me and keeps our convo going. Recently, we went clubbing again and he mentioned we need to go to another concert soon. Unfortunately, no one we know is touring now so we promised we'll keep an eye out. I also danced with him (not suggestively). He held his hand up in a way that seemed like he wanted me to take it, so I did, and we continued to dance in the same innocent way but while holding hands. Afterwards, he high-fived me.
Sometimes, I really feel he likes me. I feel I'm different from his other friends, since he tends to banter with them and not get personal while we always talk have actual convos with each other. If he ever does tease, he's more talking me up rather than roasting me. But other times, I'm not sure because he doesn't exactly flirt a lot and we don't text/interact on social media, other than him liking my posts and one of my stories. And like I said before, he's not always initiating real life convos. I got insecure recently too because another girl who's closer to him (they hang out and banter a lot) told me she was also crushing on him. We went salsa dancing that night and I couldn't help but notice that when they danced, they were laughing a lot. With me, he was more serious, maybe even uncomfortable, and avoided eye contact (when he did look at me, he'd look away when I looked back). He also high-fived me again when we were done, which I'm not sure what to make of since I never see him high-five others after a dance. It got me questioning everything again, which probably also affected how I was around him. Do I have a chance, or am I being delusional?

2023.06.05 15:25 CoralWiggler I’m pretty sure one of my players is cheating rolls—how do I approach?

For reference, my group and I play online because we’re spread out across the country. A couple of my players use the online tool, and the rest use in-life dice. Generally this is not an issue, and I typically trust that they accurately relay their dice rolls even though I can’t verify.
However, lately, I’ve noticed one player has… unusually good dice rolls. I started noticing it in a one shot run by one of our players, where most of the parties average dice roll (meaning less modifiers, which was around +3 to +4 in most instances) was around a 10-12. Makes sense, right? This player was averaging a 16-18. Now, I understand probability states that can happen, but even so, his lowest roll with modifier for the whole session was a 19. It was improbably high, because we were doing a lot of rolling. He’s one that is rolling physical dice, so we can’t immediately spot check.
But whatever, it was a one-shot. Then I started noticing it in the campaign—he was averaging super high rolls even once you account for the modifier. It’s doubly frustrating because he’s a power gamer & very slightly a rules lawyer as well, so he’s already difficult to work around since most of the group isn’t focused on making super optimized builds & content to roll with rule of cool here and there.
I’m not sure how to address this. I don’t have hard proof that he’s cheating on his rolls, but circumstantial evidence certainly points to it. I’m not sure that asking all them to roll in the app without giving any kind of reasoning would be a great idea either—I feel like I essentially would be obligated after discussion to say I think it’s because one of them is cheating. I also don’t particularly want to “reverse cheat” because then that player is going to feel targeted and that may potentially punish the other players. Any advice would be appreciated!
