2023.03.30 12:56 SnazzyCub Telomancy, The Art of Intent

Here's a small wiki entry for one of the two magic systems in my WIP story. Ask me anything to help flesh this out!


“Changing the world is easy for a telomancer. The true challenge is not to accidentally kill yourself with an intrusive thought while juggling god’s tools.” - Master Carwyn Nai'lo
Telomancy, also known as intent magic, is a technique used to manipulate the aether to influence the physical world. People capable of Telomancy are known as “Telomancers”, “evokers”, or simply mages; and have the ability to influence the aether to produce a variety of external effects called “evocations”, more commonly known as spells.
Telomancers are grouped according to the level of power or complexity they are able to weave into their evocations, with the lower of these two determining their actual designation.



A schema is the metaphysical sense of self that all sentient creatures possess. The schema is formed at birth, and has been determined to emerge from a point within the chest behind the solar plexus, called the sui medulla. During a human’s infancy the schema is not yet fully formed, but slowly grows to match what they understand as the shape of their body as they mature.
As a person matures, the schema becomes more difficult to manipulate. The average human schema is fully mature by the age of 30, and can not change by any means other than absolute devastation of the psyche resulting in total memory loss or a traumatic injury sufficient to irreparably damage the sui medulla.
The schema is the foundation of all spell casting. To manipulate the latent magical energy present in the atmosphere requires that a telomancer manipulate their schema, or in essence their sense of self, to touch the aether and bind it with their willpower. This allows a telomancer to temporarily treat the energy they are touching as if it were a part of them. Once they have a positive grasp of the aether in this way, they can then alter it through the use of mental associations and imbue it with intent to subsequently release it as an evocation.

Mechanics of Use

The aether dictates the laws of the universe, and is the force that governs physics and reality. It dictates the natural order, and will resist any attempts to change it.
Therefore to influence the aether to create evocations, the telomancer must create the mental association between reality and the desired result to temporarily convince the aether that the evocation is the actual natural state of the universe, even if only temporarily.
It is not enough to speak the word "fire" and have the air in your palm ignite. The telomancer must understand the relation between the empty space above their hand and a ball of fire, and create a rapid chain of mental associations linking the hand and the desired fireball.
For example, a telomancer may understan that air is composed of gasses, and that some of those are flammable. They may then influence the aether to pull only the flammable gasses from the air to condense in a floating sphere of liquid above their palm, thereby creating a fire ball
Once the evocation has run its course, the aether will re-exert itself over the spent energy and return it to its former state.
Naturally, this is not the only way to create a fire ball, but it is one of the most common methods taught.


Telomancy is used to create a variety of effects to alter the physical world in some way. These can range from increasing or decreasing temperature, to altering the shape of an object, to healing a creature, etc.
Most demiurges find employment in the military, healthcare, or even as prototyping engineers. There is a tendency among them to specialize once they find a niche to work in as their increasing mastery and understanding of their profession allows them to create mental associations that allow them to cast more complex evocations.


Cantrips, or mental associations, are chains of thought that telomancers permanently etch into their schema to ease the effort of casting evocations. This is done through repetition, the more a telomancer casts a particular evocation or effect, the more deeply engraved it becomes in their schema. Eventually, it can become so effortless that it becomes second nature, allowing for more than one effect to be woven into an evocation and thereby casting a more potent spell.

Role in the World of Merigor:

Telomancers serve many purposes. They can serve as high ranking members of the military as living siege engines, or as healers of the finest calibre. Some choose to remain at the university and work for the Aspopos Logium, a division of the university that works solely to use magic to find more questions for the researchers to answer.
Their most important purpose however, is to serve as the Empire's chief deterrent from attack by the Kangho Sects. The sects practice their own brand of aetheric magic, and are the only power capable of challenging the empire if they so chose. Fortunately the threat of telomantic attack means the sects mostly keep to themselves, but they still react to any form of disrespect with extreme prejudice.

Hello everyone,
I’m looking for a flash video game from when I was a kid who terrorized me ! (2010-2012 but I’m not sure)
It was a flash game of horror style point&click in a cave where one had to escape and sometimes when one navigated between the different scene/room the shadow of a monster or his silhouette appeared on the walls, The monster had a figure as if he was wearing a mane !
Thank you if anyone can help me because I found nothing by doing my research !

2023.03.30 12:54 PetermanLV Beginner reading list.

Hi have been a capitalism enjoyer until about 2 months ago when I started watching Hasan. Now I want to take my understanding beyond entertainment with the help of some theory. Specifically I want to get a bit deeper understanding on why capitalism bad and leftism good (still at the point where I dont entirely know the difference between socialism, communism, marxism etc. so Ill call it leftism). This is the list I have come up with for now:
  1. "Socialism: Utopian and Scientific" by Engels
  2. "The Principles of Communism" by Engels
  3. "Wage Labour and Capital" by Marx
  4. "Value, Price and Profit" by Marx
  5. "The Communist Manifesto" by Marx and Engels
  6. "The State and Revolution" by Lenin
  7. "Imperialism, the Highest Stage of Capitalism" by Lenin
Will this list be sufficient for my goal of geting some arguments for "leftism" and some counter arguments against capitalism?

2023.03.30 12:54 Covodex Self-Torture Toaster

I'm still relatively new to 3D-printing, but am already torturing myself with Clockspring3D's Torture Toaster. I know, not the smartest idea; but I feel like I'm really learning quite a bunch in a short amount of time here; besides, I feel like I'm really close to getting there and I don't want to give up. But I'm at a point where my very limited knowledge doesn't help me anymore and all the research I'm doing always leads to recommendations (I think) I already tried, so now I'm hoping you guys can help me out. Be warned, this is a wall of text, but I already spent a lot of time on the issue and I want to avoid telling everyone that I already tried his well intended and promising idea.
I already got some finished Toasters out, but none of them really functional. At first I had problems with massive layer shifts which led me to a seemingly endless odyssey which in the end was a waste of time because these also were caused by the main issue I now believe to have nailed down firmly.
The trouble is in the angled studs of one of the side features, see pictures attached. As soon as they have reached a certain hight, the force of the print move bends them, causing the resulting layer to have an uneven height - typically in one of the corners of the overhangs, a little tab will stick up. The next time the nozzle comes around to print the next layer, the force on the stud will be even greater because of the tab of the last layer; bending it more, causing the next layer to have an even more varied height. This process continues until the collision becomes too forceful and the stud breaks off. If the angle of the collision is unlucky and causes a lot of resistance for the X or Y stepper, it will skip steps and thus shift layers, sometimes massively.
I have tried a lot of changes in my Slicer settings to varying degree of success; I'm at the point now where I don't have any idea how I could circumvent this issue.
My setup & settings:
- Ender 3 S1 with all-metal hotend sprite extruder; stock besides a 5015 fan with custom part cooling duct, run with a Creality sonic pad (ergo: I'm running Klipper, not Marlin); it's in an enclosure that gets to around 42°C on the PLA and up to 60°C on the ABS settings.
- SuperSlicer with Andrew Ellis' profiles, with a slight slowdown and some hardware changes for my setup.
For PLA: Hotend 200°C, Bed 60°C, Fan 100%, speed varies between 60 (external perimeter) and 150 (infill) mm/s
For ABS: Hotend 250°C, Bed 110°C, Fan 50%, speed same as PLA
What I have already tried to troubleshoot:
- Varied part cooling fan speeds from continously off to continously high or continously low or just high on overhang perimeters
+ with PLA, every bit of fan reduction would lead to increased curling of overhangs, worsening the problem.
+ With ABS, completely having the fan off or just very very low would also lead to increased curling overhangs, increasing the main problem; 50% like in Ellis' profile seemed to work good, but actually I noticed better performance with even higher fan settings. Those however would lead to slight layer adhesion problems. Maybe this difference is because my enclosure is 10°C hotter than Ellis'? Or maybe my hardware cooler setup needs even more work? (This is my installed fan duct: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5398053) It is possible that it was aimed a bit badly until today, so all the prints might have been done with ineffective cooling, explaining why I need so high values for ABS)
- (Only with PLA): Varied hotend temps from 185°C to 210°C - no significant effect.
- Introduced Seam gap up to 21% - seemed to help, but I'm actually not sure about that. Since the improvement didn't really seem to scale with higher Seam Gap values and the problem existend only on this detail, I gave up on that route - even if it helps, it feels a bit like a cheat that will bite me in the ass later
- Switched the Seam placement around - with Ellis' profile, the Seam would end up always on the same corner on these studs; while thinking the seam itself would be the problem, I thought switching it's position might help no adding to the problem with each additional layer, and it kinda does a little, but the core problem still remains
- Introduced extra wipes for external perimeters - seemed to help smoothing the surface a bit more, but it always misses the little tab sticking up from the overhanging perimeter, because that sits right on the outside. I noticed that no matter how I set wipes or extra wipes up, I haven't found a way to make it wipe outward from the external perimeter; I can only get it to wipe inward or along the just printed perimeter. If I could set SuperSlicer up to do that, it could at least bend the problematic tabs down a bit. Have I just missed a setting that needs to be turned on or off, so that it wipes outward instead of inward on the external perimeter? If someone knows how to set that up, please let me know.
Anyhow, the problem with wipe moves to me is in the fact that it just causes additional stress on the already bent around studs. The results of the extra wipes I could get it to do weren't super impressive so to avoid unnecessary stresses I turned them off again.
- Varied printing speeds down to 30mm/s and up to 100mm/s for the problematic external perimeters - I would get a few layer more out of slowing down, but the core problem is still there. So some improvement, probably because a slower nozzle means that the malleable plastic has more time to take shape, conveying less of the kinetic force from the moving nozzle onto the build, but it doesn't solve the issue - and since I was already beyond the 20h mark with those settings, I really don't like the idea of slowing down the print even more; even my Ender 3 S1 should be able to handle these speeds easily.
- tried with and without Z-hop - currently using it since it already was part of Ellis' profile and it definitely helps with the build not immediately failing catastrophically as soon as the first tabs show up. Currently it's set to 0,3mm.
- used SuperSlicer's "Reverse on odd" setting - seemed to have helped a bit by evening out the uneven-ness of the layers, but for a start the algorithm doesn't seem to like the studs to be seen as overhangs (it usually detects only some and some of those only partially) and doesn't always apply the rule on them, no matter how low I set the Threshhold for the function (I was down to 3% of the perimeter hanging over for Reverse on odd to be applied, and still besides the 3 outer ones, none of the other studs was treated as intended. Secondly, the main problem still exists - the print move bends the surface it prints on, hence the print won't ever be really successful, the resulting layer will definitely not be flat. I can't see a way around that, besides reducing the force the nozzle has on the print. But how?
- With PLA I spent a lot of time playing around with extrusion multiplier and width&spacing, but the thing with any of that is that the rest of the print seems to turn out quite well. Would the build surface stay even, the problem likely wouldn't exist; so I don't like the idea of affecting other build areas negatively to somehow get this area to work.
- With PLA I also played a lot with Retraction settings, since I thought the sticking up tab might be getting pulled up by the retracting action. I really didn't notice any difference, besides a change in stringing in different areas. Currently I'm pretty convinced it doesn't have anything to do with the Retraction
- Played with Perimeter count and Wall thickness: Since I arrived at Ellis' setting (4 perimeters, Wall Thickness set to 0 so off), changing it only seems to weaken the prints, so I'll leave that be for now.

There's surely quite a bit I've tried which im forgetting right now; but on the other hand, since then I changed a lot of other settings so maybe it can't hurt to try some things again. I'm particularly hopeful that someone of you had this exact problem already and can tell me what he did to fix it.
Thanks in beforehand for every bit of helpful advice!

2023.03.30 12:53 AnonymousPossums Should I ask my boyfriend to set a boundary between him and his best friend?

For context, my boyfriend (w) (16) and I, (15 f) have been together for about 7 months now. He's super sweet and the most loyal boy I've met by far. I trust him a lot, he'd never do anything to hurt me but he can be a bit oblivious. His best friend on the other hand... I hate. We'll call him M. M was born as a female but sometimes(?) Identifies as a male. I am homeschooled now but used to attend the school they go to. M is dating my best friend but treats then like crap while cheating and calling it being poly. M told one of my friends that he likes my boyfriend and I heard that M had been flirting with W. (Playful punching, taking is phone and acting "cute", being territorial about sitting next to him and so on) I confronted W about it and he kinda laughed and said "babe no" laughing at the idea of dating M. He reassured me that nothing is going on between them and I believe that on his end but I feel like M is gonna try doing something. M and I have hated each other for a long time. We've tried being friends but M is an entitled bitch who thinks he can do whatever to whoever and when ever he wants. I don't take shit and he freaks out whenever he gets called out.
Side note: I am not homophobic or trans phobic. I am bisexual and have many friends who are a part of the community. M is the kind of person that give us a bad name.

2023.03.30 12:53 callme_shifuuu Every teenager should keep this in mind before getting into a serious relationship

Do not spend so much time trying to be more physically attractive to just impress your crush rather than making yourself mentally attractive.
Educate yourself, address the recurring toxic thoughts that will harm you in the future and try to overcome them, deal with your insecurities, and learn to be happy on your own. Thats attractive.
Normalize saying "NO" without needing to over-explain yourself. Maintain your boundaries and if someone is offended by your boundaries, that's their problem, not yours. The best weight you'll ever lose is the weight of others' opinions of you.
Don't subscribe to other people's definition of "FUN" The fun doesn't always mean partying, drinking, or socializing. Fun can be a night alone, getting lost in a book, having a deep conversation, walking on a wet street, creating art, painting, music, writing your random thoughts, or doing any other chores. Fun is yours, you define it.
Before you get married, discuss bills, parenting styles, credit, debt, how to deal with family, what belief will be installed in your children, childhood traumas, sexual expectations, partner expectations, family health history, dream home, career, education, and whatever else comes in mind. In today's generation love isn't enough.
Heal before having children so your children don't have to heal from having you as a parent.
The age of 16 to 30 is the golden era of your life. You make friends, you lose them too. You make mistakes and correct them too. You fall, you fail, you get betrayed, you learn, you realize, you hit reality you fall in love, and get hurt too. You lose yourself and eventually become stronger. Remember, these are the best years of your life you should understand the difference between enjoying it and ruining it. Lemme know if I missed something.

2023.03.30 12:52 StarkWines Top Tips About Wine That Anyone Can Follow

Top Tips About Wine That Anyone Can Follow
The right glass of wine can help you relax or enhance the taste of your favorite meal. Regardless of your wine preferences, learning more about wine can enhance your experience. Keep reading this article to obtain valuable advice on all the great things about wine.
For best taste, store wine properly. Extreme temperatures, whether cold or hot, can destroy your wine. Store your wine at a temperature of 50 to 55 to get the best taste. There are wine refrigerators for this, or you can keep them stored in your basement.

TIP! Properly store your wine to keep the flavor fresh. You do not want your wine to be too hot or too cold; it can hurt the flavor.
Wine can make great sauces for beef dishes. Just place some butter in a saucepan with a bit of wine. As the sauce simmers, the alcohol cooks away and the mixture gradually thickens. Your lovely sauce can then be drizzled over any beef dish.
Do not drink wine every night if you frequently get headaches. Wine contains an ingredient called sulfites, which can increase the frequency of acquiring a headache. Drink only in moderation to avoid headaches.
TIP! If you have an increase in headaches following meals, do not drink so much wine. Wines contain sulfites, and this may be the cause of these headaches.
There is no truth to the statement that each and every white wine is best served chilled. Since each type is different, each will taste better served a different way. Sauvignon blanc generally tastes best chilled, but others, like chardonnay, are more flavorful when they are closer to room temperature.
Stock your wine cellar with a variety of labels and types of wine. Limiting your options to only one type of wine does not make for much variety when company comes over. In order to be the ideal host, offer various kinds of wine, such as red, white, sparkling and sweet.
TIP! Serve wine at the proper temperature in order to coax the best flavor from each glass. The temperature of red wine should be at approximately 60 degrees in order for the flavor to really shine.
The greater the sparkle, the more you need chill your beverage. A white wine served at a different temperature will not expose the flavors that you deserve to experience. Put your champagne inside a good refrigerator to serve it chilled.
Wine country is a place to visit if you have a passion for wine. Visiting the vineyards allows you to see the grapes, talk to the wine makers and experience your favorite flavors in a brand new way. You’ll broaden your knowledge, too. This trip can be educational and fun.
TIP! If you can, have a wide collection of wine. This is important since you shouldn’t have just one type of wine available.
Color is not a factor in terms of a wine’s lightness. Whites and reds contain similar amounts of alcohol. Whites are lighter in taste, though. Find a nice Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc for very light flavors.
Red and white wines are made from different grapes. Violet-purple grapes produce wines that have a strong body. White wines; however, use grapes of a green coloration which are much crisper. Obviously, there are other differences between them, but that’s the main difference.

TIP! It is important to know how to peel a wine bottle label off. An easy way to ensure you can remove the entire label without ripping it is to heat it in the oven until you can easily peel off the label.
Join online wine forums. You can learn a lot from the many different people that join these forums and have experiences to share and opinions to give. You may end up being pointed in the direction of an amazing label.
Many varieties of wine will go well with your favorite dessert. Typically, dessert wines have a sweeter taste than the wines served during the meal. Port wines are a great category to take advantage of with your dessert. They are best served at around 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
TIP! A perfect after dinner drink that a lot of people seem to enjoy is a wine that is rich in flavor. A California Port, French Champagne or an Italian Moscato are great choices.
Wine makes an event better. You must know as much as you can before you buy a bottle of wine. If you use the tips from this article, your friends will soon consider you as an expert and ask you to help them choose a wine for their next party.

2023.03.30 12:52 Isotope729 Attended Abu Dhabi F1 race and it was ballistic!

Attending a F1 race was always on my checklist and I decided to take the plunge in 2022. Covid restrictions were reducing, and I knew it was kind of 'now or never' to attend a race. It turned out to be a solo trip too; as some friends showed interest but had to drop out for various reasons.
I was also interested in the behind the scenes experience and this package allowed me to do just that. The package and trip was expensive, but it was entirely worth it. I booked the F1 Experiences package (Hero) to ensure I get the maximum exposure to F1. It allowed me to get a pitlane walk, a drinks+snacks meeting with several people such as Bern Maylander, Felipe Massa and some others, along with seating in the main grandstand all through the weekend. I had to book in January as the other tickets were sold out. Booking early allowed me to space out my planning, and ensured I looked at all my options (flight tickets, hotel bookings, etc.) while not stressing out with the planning.
The hotels get very expensive, typically thrice their normal rates, during the GP weekend. However with time on my hand, I could look around to see what fit my needs. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a good hotel, they were either very expensive, or very simple, or looked shady (at least to me). This was my first-time going to Abu Dhabi so I wasn't well versed on what to expect. I then decided to contact a travel agent who specialized in UAE tours for my hotel. He did a splendid job and got me a hotel in downtown Abu Dhabi and was entirely within my budget. Additionally, UAE visas aren't available via an official website, so I relied on him to get my visa. I booked the flight myself; so that wasn't an issue.
And boy, what a race to attend - it was the last race for Seb, Danny Ric, Mick and Latifi.
The F1 Experiences package had the below:
Thur: Meet and greet at Turn 1, with terrific views of the race track. It included drinks and snacks, a guided tour of the circuit on an open truck (also used for the drivers parade), and the pitlane walk. I watched the Alfa Romeo team practice their pitstops, chatted with an Aston Martin engineer, saw Yuki, Pierre, and Seb in person.
Fri: Practice sessions
Sat: F1 Quali, support series races
Sun: F1 main race, support series races
They also provided a gift of my choice after I came back. I chose the Aston Martin coffee mug (because I'm a Seb fan).
Getting There and About Abu Dhabi:
  1. Abu Dhabi doesn't really have a good public transport system, so I had to rely on taxis from my hotel to the racetrack. It took about 30 minutes one way, and cost about 70 dirhams each way. Thanks to my travel agent I could budget for this prior to me reaching there.
  2. Everyone and their dog knows it's the race weekend. The atmosphere is like the World Cup or Olympics in the city. The atrium in the AD airport had a replica F1 car, and posters dotted the city.
  3. Even though it was November, it was fairly hot. The nights were summery cool and with the sea about a kilometer away, it was very refreshing in late evenings.
  4. Abu Dhabi is very safe, and I never once felt scared. My flight landed around 2am, and taking the cab to the hotel at that hour was and felt normal.
  5. The circuit is on the Yas Island, a purpose built man-made island for the high and mighty. It also contains Ferrari World, Warner Bros. Studios theme park and other attractions. Ferrari World is right next to the circuit. I went to Ferrari World on Thursday and then to the circuit for the event.
  6. There are free shuttle buses that run around the perimeter of the circuit and I used those to get to Yas Mall and then take a taxi. Finding taxis around the circuit is rare, especially on Sunday. Thursday and Friday were good days to find a taxi there though.

Some notes:
  1. The tickets were confirmed when I bought the package, but I didn't receive the physical tickets until about 10 days prior to the race. It was single pass with a QR code and a lanyard.
  2. The meeting point for the Thursday event was given well in advance, and directions were easily available. They had given GPS coordinates, and I saved them to Google Maps to ensure I could find them easily.
  3. Water and food was widely available, and I could bring my own bottled water for all days except Sunday.
  4. Be sure to stay hydrated throughout the day, the Sun isn't scorching but you can feel the heat during the day. Drink other water-based fluids during the day such as juices; as bottled water won't always quench your thirst . There is a local drink called laban (buttermilk or fermented milk) that you can also try.
  5. Be prepared to walk about 5 kilometers everyday. The circuits are big, and the closest gate to your sitting area can still be very far.
  6. Get binoculars to the circuit, they were checked by security but allowed. Since I was sitting on the main grandstand, I could see the action in the pitlane clearly.
  7. I didn't need any earplugs for protection, the new cars aren't that loud. I kept some cotton with me though, in case it was needed. The wheelguns are definitely loud.
  8. Try to capture as much as you can in your mind. I so often see people trying to get that perfect shot/capture on camera that they miss out the live experience. I took many photos and videos of course, but maintained a balance between what I wanted to experience and what I wanted to store away in my camera.
  9. There weren't any dedicated smoking zones in the circuit, however I did see folks going to corners for their smokes/vapes. Smoking isn't allowed at all at the racetrack.

The environment was heavy and emotional throughout the weekend; Seb's retirement was the probably the only/main topic of discussion at the racetrack. I also got to sit in a sea of Checo fans, which was exciting because I was supporting Checo for P2 in the driver's championship.

Cost and Worth It?: It cost a bomb for me to attend, including the package, flights, hotel and food expenses. Would I do it every year? No. It took me a couple of years to save for this experience. Was it worth it? It was worth every cent, even if Seb wasn't retiring at that race.

Being my first race in person, I got much helpful tips from here. Thanks to the community for the tips!

2023.03.30 12:50 Far_Breakfast_5808 [Serious] How exactly are the hype for crypto and the hype for ML/AI similar and different?

People say that the main difference is that ML/AI actually do have cases uses and can be useful, but not crypto. Is that really it? If so, why are there still comparisons between the hype for crypto and the hype for ML/AI when the latter has more utility?

2023.03.30 12:50 LocationOk1668 A Comprehensive Guide to Understanding AWS S3 Pricing: How to Optimize Your Costs

Amazon Web Services (AWS) Simple Storage Service (S3) is a popular cloud storage service that enables businesses to store and retrieve large amounts of data. AWS S3 pricing can be complex, and if not understood properly, it can lead to unexpected expenses. In this guide, we'll break down the different factors that affect AWS S3 pricing and provide tips on how to optimize your costs.
Understanding AWS S3 Pricing
AWS S3 pricing is based on four factors: storage, data transfer, requests, and management. Let's dive into each one:
  1. Storage: AWS S3 charges you based on the amount of data you store in the service. The pricing varies depending on the region you choose and the storage class you select. AWS S3 offers several storage classes such as S3 Standard, S3 Infrequent Access, S3 One Zone-Infrequent Access, and Glacier.
  2. Data Transfer: AWS S3 charges you for the amount of data that is transferred in and out of the service. This includes data transfers between regions, data transfers between AWS services, and data transfers between your S3 bucket and the internet.
  3. Requests: AWS S3 charges you based on the number of requests you make to the service. This includes GET requests, PUT requests, COPY requests, and DELETE requests.
  4. Management: AWS S3 charges you for the management of your objects in the service. This includes object tagging, object lifecycle policies, and cross-region replication.
Tips to Optimize AWS S3 Costs
  1. Choose the Right Storage Class: Choosing the right storage class is crucial in optimizing your AWS S3 costs. If you have data that is frequently accessed, choose the S3 Standard storage class. If you have data that is rarely accessed, choose the S3 Infrequent Access storage class.
  2. Use Amazon S3 Transfer Acceleration: Amazon S3 Transfer Acceleration is a service that enables fast, easy, and secure transfers of files over the internet. It uses Amazon CloudFront's globally distributed edge locations to accelerate transfers.
  3. Delete Unused Objects: AWS S3 charges you based on the amount of data you store in the service. To optimize your costs, regularly delete any unused objects.
  4. Set Object Lifecycle Policies: Setting object lifecycle policies is a way to automatically transition objects between different storage classes or delete them when they are no longer needed.
  5. Monitor Your AWS S3 Costs: Regularly monitor your AWS S3 costs using AWS Cost Explorer. This will help you identify areas where you can optimize your costs.

2023.03.30 12:50 StarkWines Your Source For The Top Tips About Wine

Your Source For The Top Tips About Wine
The right wine can help you relax, enhance the taste of your food, and bring joy to every occasion. Even if you don’t especially like wine, being knowledgeable about wine has perks. You can cook in a better way and impress people, as well as many other things.
You can preserve the taste and aroma of a wine if you store it properly. Temperatures that are either too hot or too cold can alter the taste of your wine. Keep the wines between 50 and 55 degrees to get optimal results. Store your wine in a basement or a wine refrigerator.

TIP! Know the store where you purchase your wine. Each wine shop is different.
Do not drink wine every night if you frequently get headaches. Wine contains sulfites, which can be the cause of more frequent headaches. Drink only in moderation to avoid headaches.
Pay a visit to the areas that produce the grapes for the wines. To fully appreciate and understand the unique flavor of the grapes, you should see how and where they are harvested. It will help you to better explain the aromas and taste to others. Also, the areas are ideal vacation spots, so enjoy yourself.
TIP! Rely on Windex if you spill wine on your clothing. Windex can effectively remove wine right away, and it’s much better than water and soap.
If you enjoy fine wine, plan on visiting a wine country so you can see where grapes grow. Wine country is absolutely beautiful, and you will truly appreciate a wine once you see where the grapes grow and associate it with treasured memories of your trip.
Listen to the advice of wine experts, but don’t take their opinion as gospel. Any reputable wine expert readily acknowledges fallibility. They might not have the same tastes as you. Therefore, always make up your own mind.
TIP! One good thing to do when you’re getting wine is to give a single a bottle a try first. With such a variety of wines to chose from, you need to find out which ones you actually like.
Never serve champagne or sparkling wine unless it is well chilled. The flavor is enhanced the colder it is, and it will not taste the same at room temperature. Put your champagne inside a good refrigerator to serve it chilled.
A dessert wine is a perfect way to end a dinner. California Port makes for a good dessert wine. So does Champagne and the Italian Moscato. Your party guests are sure to love the relaxing ambiance that sipping wine can bring.
TIP! Try one of the many discussion forums about wine online. These forums are a fun way to learn a lot about wine, as well as making new friends.
The type and color of grapes that are used in a wine are the main differentiators between red and white wine. Violet-purple grapes produce wines that have a strong body. Lighter, crisper green grapes make white wine. There is more than just color differences in these wines, so go out and experiment to find the perfect wine for you.

Join online wine forums. You can learn a lot from the many different people that join these forums and have experiences to share and opinions to give. You might just find that you are led to your favorite wine from a friendly suggestion made by a fellow member.
TIP! The next time you order wine while dining out, don’t be afraid to try something new. If you are trying to make an impression on your friends, pick a wine they are not familiar with.
As you can see, there are many benefits to knowing about wine. The benefits are not limited to just enjoying a glass of wine. In fact, there are so many interesting and entertaining things you can do with this timeless libation. Apply all that you have read in this article and you can benefit immediately.

2023.03.30 12:49 thehandsomeraider Atlas Fallen Fast Paced Combat Explained by Creative Director of the Game

I think Atlas Fallen is a wild mix which makes it very unique. At its heart it’s an Action RPG and therefore draws inspiration from recent titles like Horizon Zero Dawn or God of War. But having the “sand magic” powers at its heart, which let you manipulate your weapon and attacks in no time, we wanted to use some fast-paced combat action too, and therefore there’s maybe a bit of Darksiders or Devil May Cry in the mix, too. Finally, coming from our most recent title The Surge 2, we wanted to keep the dynamic skill system and try a new iteration of an energy-based combat system.
There are three basic weapon styles in the game and each of them can be split into a variety of features. Each type can also be used as either primary or secondary weapon and has at least two different main ways of usage, for example the sand whip can be used in close combat fighting but can also be used as a sort of grappling hook to pierce an enemy and pull yourself towards it. So, there’s a strong variety between these weapons and the different attack modes they can be used with.

2023.03.30 12:49 OkayICU 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 or 2015 Toyota Tundra

I'm currently between the two trucks in the title.
The Chevy has 67,000 miles and is priced at $25,195 (4x4, 5.3 V8)
The Toyota has 86,000 miles and is priced at $28,500 (4x4, 5.7 V8)

No accidents reported for either. Both have had two owners.

The main concerns I have with the Chevy is this AFM/DOD system built within their engines. From what I've read this could cause an expensive repair. You can completely delete it, but the cost to do so is anywhere between $3-6k.

Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!

2023.03.30 12:49 jumatau999721 Toddler pushing bed time further back - 22months old

My son is nearly 22 months old and has been pushing his bed time back further and further. We walked him in the carrier until 1.5 years old and for the last couple of months we have transitioned him to fall asleep in his big bed on his own.
He naps 12-2pm every day and will usually take himself to bed between 7-7.30. Initially he was falling asleep at 8pm but now he's laying in bed playing with his feet for much longer - not sleeping until 8.30 onwards. We are currently going cold turkey with the dummy so maybe that's why? It doesn't really seem to bother him not having it. He still gets a bottle to bed + song (sadly not interested in books yet)
I don't really know what to do, I feel like 8.30pm is way too late of a bedtime for him and would prefer he be asleep by 7.30/8
Has anyone had something similar happen before? Should we be cutting his nap to an hour a day? Or pushing it back 1-3pm instead? I'm at a loss, it's now nearly 9pm and he's still awake in bed.
Any advice would be appreciated 😊

2023.03.30 12:49 camodr25 "Being Able to Play Hinoshita Kaho Makes Me Very Happy" ── Love Live! New Series "Hasunosora Girls' High School Idol Club" Cast Interview Series Vol.1: Nirei Nozomi, the Voice of Hinoshita Kaho

As a new project in the "Love Live!" series, details were announced on February 10th during the unveiling livestream for "Hasunosora Girls' High School Idol Club." A new "story to be realized by everyone (school idol project)" begins at the private Hasunosora Girls' High School, located in a secluded area of Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture.
The debut mini-album "Dream Believers" was released on March 29th, and will be followed by a release commemorative event at Toyosu PIT in Tokyo on April 21st and an opening live event at the Pacifico Yokohama National Hall on June 4th! The app "Link! Like! Love Live!" is also currently accepting pre-registrations.
Starting today, we have a series of interviews in which each of the six cast members portraying the members of the talked-about "Hasunosora Girls' High School Idol Club" discusses the appeal of Hasunosora!
The first installment features Nirei Nozomi, who plays Hinoshita Kaho. We talked to Nirei about Kaho, the unit she belongs to, her personal life, the songs she sings in the debut mini-album "Dream Believers," her enthusiasm for the release commemorative event and opening live just about a month away, and more.
Please enjoy the interview along with keyword talks inspired by "Love Live!".

"Keep moving forward" and "Everything will work out"

First, please introduce yourself.

Nirei Nozomi, the voice of Hinoshita Kaho (hereinafter, Nirei): Nice to meet you. I'm Nirei Nozomi. I have a twin sister, and we're both Geminis, born on May 21st. Coincidentally, Kaho-chan's birthday is May 22nd, just one day apart.
My hobby is reading books, and when I have time, I like to wander around bookstores, impulsively buy interesting books, or go to the library and read books that catch my interest based on their spine design.
Recently, I bought the complete 12-volume collection box of Psychic Detective Yakumo and COMPLETE FILES. I found the stories in COMPLETE FILES interesting because they show the protagonists' lives after the main story.
I also love singing. My bathroom is my concert venue (laughs), so I sing a lot. Lately, my sister and I have been watching the anime City Hunter, so I often sing "City Hunter ~Love! Don't Disappear!~" (Kahoru Kohiruimaki) and "RUNNING TO THE HORIZON" (Tetsuya Komuro) from City Hunter 2 by myself. By the way, I've been watching the series in order and have made it up to City Hunter '91 (laughs).

Your profile also mentions that you enjoy handicrafts.

Nirei: I do handicrafts with my mom. She's good at it and makes sponges for washing dishes. I'm currently working on knitting flower earrings.

You seem to have a knack for working with your hands.

Nirei: I should be good with my hands, but I'm not good at cooking. I think I can do it if I try, though...
(Next to her, Kokona Nonaka, the voice of Murano Sayaka: "But it's dangerous! Scary!")
Nirei: The other day, I injured myself peeling a radish. Nasu-chan [Kozue] is good at cooking, so I'm thinking of learning from her while we do it together.

You're also good at swimming, right?

Nirei: I wasn't very good at swimming in elementary school. But I was frustrated that my swimming test levels in school weren't improving, so I started attending a nearby swimming school where my friends were going. In two years, I became able to swim freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke, and butterfly.
After that, I quit swimming when I became able to swim the individual medley because I wanted to learn English. I could swim fast during my high school swimming classes, but I don't know about it now since I don't have a chance to swim at full strength (laughs). But I'm good at swimming.

And you're also good at Hip Hop dancing.

Nirei: I started Hip Hop dancing when I was in middle school, but before that, I was doing rhythmic gymnastics. Though it wasn't very serious, more like "Did my body become more flexible?" (laughs). Then I got into dancing and started learning Hip Hop dance.

Do you have a personal motto?

Nirei: I have two: "Keep moving forward" and "Things will work out." If I combine these two, things will mostly work out. I always act with the mindset that "It's okay to fail, so let's try moving in the direction I want to go."

That fits perfectly with the concept of "Love Live!"

Nirei: Thank you! I think that's something Hinoshita Kaho and I have in common. Joy and gratitude for being a part of my debut work

Joy and Gratitude for the Debut Work

Please tell us how you felt when you were chosen for the role of Hinoshita Kaho.

Nirei: I loved "Love Live!" so much that I cosplayed with my friends since middle school, but I didn't pass the audition for "Love Live! Superstar!!".
After a while, I learned about the audition for Hasunosora and thought, "I absolutely want to pass." I wondered how I could pass and decided to showcase my dancing skills.
Ever since I was a child, I wanted to be someone who could sing and dance, but my love for anime came from my anime-loving father and the impact of watching "Love Live!" when a friend recommended it in middle school.
After that, I started going to the Animate Ikebukuro main store every week with my friends. But at that time, I didn't think about becoming a voice actor yet, because I thought acting might be too difficult for me. However, as I continued watching "Love Live!", I learned about the feelings of the actors behind the characters and thought, "I want to be one too!"
From there, I became a voice actor and searched for ways to act. I was filled with joy and gratitude for being able to appear in a work I love and for it to be my debut work. It made me determined to give it my all.

Please tell us your impression of Kaho, who you play, the similarities and differences between you and her, and what you find charming about her.

Nirei: Kaho is always energetic and cheerful, and she enjoys everything with a positive attitude. She can be friendly with anyone, and I think her charm lies in the fact that there's no barrier between her and others.
She can immediately take action if she thinks something looks fun, but she never leaves anyone behind. Instead, she has the power to involve others and hold their hands, saying "Let's go!" with both of her hands.
She can also empathize with those who can't take the first step and allow them to do so. I think that's the kind of girl she is.
As a newcomer to voice acting, I have a lot to learn and work hard on. But someday, I hope to be like Kaho and become a stepping stone for those who aspire to be voice actors.
The difference between Kaho and me is in the way we approach challenges. Though we both end up making strange decisions (laughs).
(Hanamiya: Kaho often starts acting and then wonders if she's doing the right thing, but Nonsuke might think first and then act differently.)
Nirei: That's true (laughs). But even the positive-thinking Kaho gets down after failing, I think it's amazing that she can think about what to do and have the power to stand up again. I admire her while playing her.

Your birthdays are close, and you both enjoy reading as a hobby.

Nirei: Our heights are the same, too! But whether it's a coincidence or fate, please remember us as a set.
(Nonaka: It's scary how similar you are (laughs).)
Nirei: Actually, I didn't tell my sister about being cast as Kaho, and she was really surprised when she watched the reveal livestream on February 10th (laughs). When she saw Kaho's illustration, she asked me, "Isn't this you? Did they design it with you as a reference?"
Kaho sometimes runs late because she's reading a book, but I don't. I do read right up until the last minute, though (laughs).

Another difference is that Kaho is from a farming family in Nagano Prefecture, while you are a city girl from Tokyo, right?

Nirei: I'm not that sophisticated (laughs). I think Kaho is somewhat used to snow, but I am extremely bad at dealing with the cold. There was a four-panel manga on the official Hasunosora Twitter where Kaho appeared wearing a hanten (short winter coat), and I was a little curious about whether it'd be warm enough.
Ah!? Also, I'm not as outgoing as Kaho (laughs). But since I started playing Kaho, I feel like my gestures and hand movements have gotten bigger.

What are the Features and Charms of Kaho and Kozue's Unit "Cerise Bouquet"?

Please introduce the unit your character belongs to and share its charm and appeal points.

Nirei: The unit "Cerise Bouquet," consisting of Kaho-chan and Kozue-senpai, can be described as classic idols in a nutshell. They sing songs that emphasize hope for the future and radiate the happiness and excitement that they feel.
While all the units are comprised of first-year and second-year pairings, Cerise Bouquet might have the strongest sisterly bond. I think it's a unit that layers the feelings of the two and creates an atmosphere where they take everyone's hand and move toward the light.
As for my partner, Kozue-senpai, she's like an older sister, but she thinks of Ui-chan [Hanamiya's nickname] as her mother.
Hanamiya: I'm the one who gave birth to Nonsuke (Nirei's nickname) (laughs).
Nirei: It's a classic exchange (laughs). She has an older sister vibe, and I want to follow her lead. Kaho-chan probably wants to catch up with Kozue-senpai and stand beside her, and it's the same way in real life, I'm inspired by her.
She puts on amazing performances, so I think we need to be on equal footing, and I want to work hard to keep up with her as a partner.
I feel like her strict guidance is somewhat similar to Kozue-senpai's (laughs), but when I voice my concerns about whether I did poorly, she comforts me saying, "That's not true. You're okay." She's my emotional stabilizer.
While there are comedic moments where Kaho-chan reacts wildly to Kozue-senpai's strict guidance, deep down, she loves Kozue-senpai and believes she's the best. I hope to continue showing that sense of trust in the future.

Could you please share your impressions of singing the debut song "Dream Believers" and any highlights for the listeners?

Nirei: It was my first recording, so I was very nervous, and I didn't know much about Kaho-chan's inner thoughts at the time. So, I sang with the excitement I feel as a member of Hasunosora Girls' High School Idol Club right now.
I like the phrase "Dream Believers, I believe!" that appears several times in the song. When I sing this song, I think of the members who are chasing their dreams together and the people who listen to this song while pursuing their dreams, and I believe in them.
I hope that everyone can feel the wonder of chasing dreams as we all connect through this song, and during live performances, we want to convey our emotions wholeheartedly through our singing, facial expressions, and choreography.
In the solo parts, I imagine passing the baton to the next person, and I hope the listeners can enjoy everyone's harmony, the charm of the subunits when the two of us sing together, and the lively energy of the first-year students and the elegance of the second-year students in the respective three-member parts.

Please introduce "Suisai Sekai"/"Watercolor World" by Cerise Bouquet, which will be included in the debut mini-album.

Nirei: Kaho-chan is always full of energy, but in this song, she sings about her worries and anxieties, such as being alone and worried after school in the first verse.
However, as we move on to the second verse, I consciously sang with the feeling that Kaho-chan's emotions can create a world that gradually spreads like watercolor paint when she says "So I'll take off and go forward my way." You can feel the two characters' worlds gradually expanding through the lyrics, and it's beautifully expressed in the lyric video.
This song encapsulates my desire to move forward and the emotions Kaho-chan experienced leading up to her decision to become a school idol.
I like the chorus part, "The world changes, from the moment we reached out our hands," because it conveys the feeling of taking a step forward, thinking that if Kaho-chan is with Kozue-senpai, they can create any kind of scenery. It can also be interpreted as Kozue-senpai realizing she's not alone. I think this song captures the emotional changes of the two characters, and I hope the listeners can feel that.

Getting to Know More about Hasunosora and Kaho

The mini-album release event is scheduled for April 21st at Toyosu PIT, and the opening live event is set for June 4th at Pacifico Yokohama. Please tell us your enthusiasm for these events.

Nirei: I'm grateful that our first performance as a cast will be at a large venue like Toyosu PIT for the April release event, but I'm also feeling a mix of excitement and anxiety.
Since there will be a talk segment, I hope people can get to know our true selves, and during the live part, I want to deliver a great performance that makes them think, "I want to support these girls." As a group of six and as Cerise Bouquet, we want to do our utmost at that time.
As for the June opening live event at the even larger venue, Pacifico Yokohama, I'm really looking forward to it.
Of course, we want to deliver a fantastic performance as a group, and by then, Cerise Bouquet's first single will be released, so we want to convey our unit's color and worldview. We also want to create a completely different atmosphere with the six of us.
All three units have unique colors, so I hope everyone can find their favorite color. We'll do our best!

Please give a message to everyone.

Nirei: I'm incredibly happy to be here as Hinoshita Kaho. I'm grateful to those who have encountered "Love Live!" and Hasunosora, and I'm determined to work hard so that as many people as possible can learn about the charm of our work and members.
To those who have read this article, I want to say thank you for getting to know me, Kaho-chan, and Hasunosora. The story of Hasunosora is just beginning, so please walk this journey with us. Let's join hands and move forward together!

2023.03.30 12:48 Primary-Job7274 Just binged the show and here are my takes on the characters

  1. Ginny- Was very annoying in the first season, she slept with Marcus while dating Hunter and got mad at her mom when she confronted her about it. She plays the racist card and the show even tries to frame racism in a situation that isn't exactly racist. She improved a little in s2, but I still think that she refuses to accept her mistakes at a time and pins it on others like blaming Hunter for their breakup. She grew on me in s2 but I don't like her very much and what I don't understand is why people give her crap for being mad at her mom after her mom committed crimes, hid truths from her, and moved with her kids to 5 different cities because of changing men which affected both the kids and many other things
  2. Georgia- Georgia is a compelling character with horrible human traits and is a horrible mom, I grew to hate her in s2. She sees people's lives as pawns and kills them and acts as if nothing happened after that. I get where she is coming from but she sees killing as the only option and lands herself and her kids at more risk. I didn't feel bad for her after she got arrested, she is gonna use the excuse that " She did a favor to Cynthia after the talk Cynthia gave to her" but killing Tom was not her decision, Ginny gets her selfishness and hypocrisy from her mom. There are tons of horrible things she did like framing a 9-year-old boy as a thief to get what she wants. All the men in her life deserve better
  3. Max- She is way too overreactive and a drama queen but I still like her. I began to hate her guts at the beginning of s2 because of her selfishness and treatment towards her friends but she improved later.
  4. Cynthia - The show writing was intended to make us hate her at first and then sympathize with her and I think that went well with me
  5. Marcus- He is the most interesting character, I think there is more to his backstory which might explain his depression. He is not morally good cause he slept with a girl who was committed
  6. Zion- He is pretty cool
  7. Samantha- Always says something annoying whenever she opens her mouth
  8. Brodie- He is funny and cool
  9. Press-jerk
  10. Abby- Felt bad for her and she is very realistic
  11. Baker parents- They are wholesome and the best even though Ellen is cringe at times
  12. Hunter- Felt bad for him after Ginny did him dirty
  13. Padma- Deserves better and is the best teenager in the show
  14. Nick- He deserved better, he is the most likable adult

2023.03.30 12:48 UnitedCucumber1711 What’s the difference?

Edit: I have very new to comics, I only just bought the first three Sandman volumes on Tuesday and I have no knowledge of comics so far 😅 all help is appreciated!
This could be a really stupid question but what’s the difference between the volumes and the comics? I’m assuming that the volumes are the comic issues put together into one larger book. I’m looking for Lucifer: devil in the gateway (if that’s the right thing) in comic form to collect and read myself but it’s just coming up with volumes.
Not sure if I’m just looking for the wrong thing 😅 thanks!

2023.03.30 12:48 Kat75018 How do I test if distributions differ from each other

Hi! Maybe this is a stupid question, but I just can't find the answer. I counted insects of different sizes in ~80 traps. The traps are split in three categories (A,F,H) and I have 5 size categories.

Trapnumber Type Size1 Size 2 Size 3 Size 4 Size 5
1 A 30 100 5 12 45
2 F 100 2 12 5 48
3 H 20 3 45 46 98
4 A 10 54 89 12 6
5 H 5 78 56 12 23
6 F 0 45 12 56 42
7 A 1 12 2 32 36
(The numbers here are completely made up)
Say my hypothesis is: The distribution of Insects (according to their size) in the A traps differs significantly from the distribution of insects in the H and F traps. How would I test that? From everything I've read I feel like I should do an Chi Square test but I honestly don't understand how. (I'm working in R, if it matters).
Thank you!!
