I decided to make this community for those, who have a passion and love for the Nier series, especially NieR: Automata. A game, that completely changed my worldview, mind. A masterpiece made by the Platinum Games team, Yoko Taro and composer Keiichi Okabe, one of my favorites. Everything I've done since my days on the "nier" community is just a dedication to NieR series. I don't need members farm, karma and rewards in the "piggy bank", it won't give me anything in real life.
2023.05.31 18:49 monkeezee Is there any benefit to buying a 125cc scooter over a 110cc for city riding?
Hello motorheads. I am currently in the market for a scooter for running daily errands and driving around Pune. I plan on pulling the trigger within the next two months. For the past few weeks I have been researching and trying to decide between Access 125, Activa 125 and Jupiter 125.
However recently I couldn't help wonder whether its worth paying the extra 15-20k for a 125 cc scooter over the usual 110cc variants. I will rarely if ever push the scooter past 70kmph at most and even then its not like 125cc scooter will not experience lack of power at higher speeds since in the end they are gearless scooters.
Now my mind is telling me to just go for a 110c variant save a few bucks and go for a bike later if I feel the need for more power.
So are there any REAL advantages over having a 125cc engine scooter if city driving is the real purpose? If it helps I'm a big guy 6ft 95kg so will a 125cc engine serve me better in terms of power and stability over 110cc or will the differences feel negligible in real world use?

2023.05.31 18:49 BrutalAttis Vive Wireless Troubleshooting Tips (blue screens/dropped frames/latencies) [RESOLVED]
Just wanted to give back to the community as a thank you for all the people modifying games like FO4VSkyrimVR that I love so much.
I recently upgraded my system and ran into some typical Vive Wireless and other common VR issues.
Like many I got frustrated with blue screen issues. I think it is quite resolvable unless a person truly has faulty hardware.
My wireless experience is now amazing and hoping some of my tips my help others with wireless issue. Troubleshooting Tips:
Check for the obvious off first:
A) CPU frame times: CPU Frametime example issue
- Update MB, VR hardware etc. firmware/bios.
- Update GPU, VR, MB hardware drivers.
fpsVR is good at helping determine in real time GPU or CPU frame timings. (or other free options)
CPU frame time issues are a much larger issue compared to GPU frame issues. If your game is getting constant CPU frame time spikes either your CPU is underpowered, has RAM speed (maybe XMP not enabled), or weird P/E core issues. If your CPU often spikes frame time then no amount of GPU will help you get a smooth VR experience (and some games are worse offenders than others: FO4VR (single core), SkyrimVR and DCS etc.)
B) GPU frame time issues: GPU Frametime example issue
Good news here is that you have options. Drop GPU in game settings. Drop rendering resolutions etc. Anytime you can make your GPU render fast enough to prevent GPU frame time within your headset refresh rate zone (or to a point that you can live with it). First dial settings down, then add back after all other issues are resolved.
C) Marching of the dreaded purple line on GPU frame time chart or what feels like a micro stutter: Example Purple Line on GPU Frametime Chart
Often caused by background monitoring processes like Corsair (suxs), MSI etc. You can write a .bat script that can be run before each VR session. Kill all unnecessary processes. Locate by looking at TaskManager > Details > Sort by CPU or Memory usage. Read up dont kill stop critical MS OS processes. Some processes be so embedded that it's best to uninstall them altogether.
taskkill /IM "exact_exe_name.exe" /F
Ex: taskkill /IM "WhatsApp.exe" /F
Stop all unnecessary services. Locate by looking at TaskManager > Services > Sort by Status and look for Running. Read up dont kill stop critical MS OS services.
net stop "exact service name"
Ex: net stop "ROG Live Service"
Purple lines are normal during major CPU/HDD tasks like game start or major texture loading. However, once your game is up or new areas loaded you should NEVER see them, if not you have a symptom of a larger underlying problem. Here is an example of a "good" purple line during loading of an area
D) Intel WiGig Wireless issue: Streaming image in headset “blurry” or “pixelated” either main game or even SteamVR home
Not enough CPU allocated either SteamVR processes or Intel WiGig process:
There is a chance if you are running P and E cores that some of your SteamVR process are running on an E core. My 13900KS did just that! You could either try hinting your VR processes to force use P cores or brute force disabling all E cores and see if issue persist. As P/E core technology matures hopefully this will become less of an issue. But I can 100% attest that my random “blurry/picilabed” vr image stream issue was resolved by ensuring that all my steam VR process and game run on P cores only.
If you are running an old CPU and depending on game -- you may not be able to resolve this at all.
You could also set the priority of you all you’re the important SteamVR, game and Intel WiGig process, I don’t recommend using “Realtime” ever. “High” is as high as I would go. Example:
wmic process where name="vrcompositor.exe" CALL setpriority "high priority" timeout 1 > NUL wmic process where name="vrserver.exe" CALL setpriority "high priority" timeout 1 > NUL wmic process where name="Fallout4VR.exe" CALL setpriority "high priority" timeout 1 > NUL wmic process where name="HtcConnectionUtility.exe" CALL setpriority "high priority" timeout 1 > NUL :: Example of game: wmic process where name="Fallout4VR.exe" CALL setpriority "high priority" timeout 1 > NUL
But don’t mess with CPU affinity
setting IMO just let the OS do its thing, else you may end up with CPU core overallocated. E) Vive-pro headset blue or grey screen:
Get the obvious out the way, make sure decent line of site from camera to wireless headpiece. Much less of an issue IMO also you can clearly see your signal strength. You could also try different channels, but that too is not major impact. Actual Intel WiGig card Temperature
is the number 1 cause in my opinion. I placed my card right over a fresh air intake fan and ran fans at max and have not had a single headset blue screen since. I am tempted to add a fixed fan connected to the MB header as a permanent measure.
This card is passively cooled, so if your case gets hot inside you can run into blue/grey screen issues. Example card placement in my pc case A well known heat issue is the Vive wireless headset temperature.
Easily fixed by googling and buy headset fan mod. Vive wireless logs will show if you have this issue, normally you will get blue/grey screen crashes after 80c … if you are running around 45-50c you are probably fine. Vive Wireless Headset Fan Link 3D Print Mold Link
If you have fpsVR there is a checkbox to allow showing real time wireless adapter temp too. Ensure your WiGig process never loses power.
You can locate the physical card and ensure Windows never cut its power.
Device Manager > View > Devices by Connection Type > System Devices Example Link
for example in my case, all under 7A3C you change the power setting to Uncheck - Allow the comp. to turn off device power
Uncheck above box for all subs Ensure SteamVR never turns off power to VR related USB devices. SteamVR Developer Disable Power Management
Loose USB connection between battery pack and wireless head piece. Probably less of a cause but can easily get a USB 3.0 replacement cable with better shielding. USB Cable option
-- not needed IMO
Length of coaxial cable from WiGig card to wireless sensor camera. Mixed feelings about this. I extended mine by about 3’ … I have zero issues, but increasing the distance could add to image qualify issues. If your troubleshooting remove it from your loop. Example of extension cable Link
Replacement battery pack. If the power is clean, you should be fine. I don't suggest using 3rd party battery packs. Use original when troubleshooting.
I firmly believe the Intel WiGig card and Vive Wireless adapter heat are the biggest culprits to blue/grey screens. F) Weird perceived in game lag, latencies or what feels like missed frames but without purple line on.
Do not change or add artificial FPS caps either using vsync, or MSI or Steam command line hints etc. One may mistakenly think that for example if your headset is 90Hz that artificially capping your FPS at 90 may be beneficial to remove additional wireless load -- But you actually adding problems with timings that maybe wont even show in fpsVR. Remove caps and aim for max fps. G) My thoughts on overlocking:
Some posts argue that overclocking, or RAM XMP can be RC for blue screens. My view is that if you overclock and RAM tests are stable, you should not worry about it as you need all the CPU/RAM speed you can get for good VR. H) Re-projection
I get a bit more reprojection with wireless compared to tethered with cable, but since it adds no latency to my gameplay (that I can tell), it does not bother me. OVR will show your stats. Keep an eye on reprojection and dropped frames. Reprojection is close to non-issue imo. I) Other tools latencymon
-- somewhat useful to see if you have driver latencies J) My Hardware
Recently upgraded and built new PC, from 9900KS/3090 to 13900KS/4090 (water-cooled). VR: VivePro (set to 150% rendering with lens mod and vive wireless. Still using old OG Vive lighthouses, Index knuckle controllers and sometimes old Vive wands. I have tried other VR headsets, but OLED, lens mod (clear) and total freedom of wireless to me are subjectively better. I don’t like the SDE I get, but can give up wireless and lens mod and OLED. VR games I enjoy:
Mostly FO4VR and SkyrimVR My VR play space and setup Pancake Games:
1400p x3 screens DCS, E:D etc. My old setup flight sim What "good times" in FO4VR can look like:
Looks for frame times and temperatures, Vive Wireless temp. at very bottom. Diamond City loading in image Diamond City After Load In Rain and other effects ongoing Signal
Hope this helps someone, took me some time to put this all down!

In dire need of encouragement to learn in because my company been trying to get everyone trained in AWS and for god's sake I can't get myself to do it. I missed the opportunity once. And then I reapplied and I still can't get myself to do it. I just keep procrastinating so much. It's been 1 months already.
But I really need to do it this time else it might impact my appraisal process.
So can someone please say if there's anything at all interesting about cloud technology? I just love DB and unix so much I can't seem to want to do anything other than these two.

2023.05.31 18:48 Cool_Potato521 Does anyone experience negative effects when listening to juice?
I love juice but when I'm battling addictions and depression his music tend to make it worst. The lyrics in his music are so relateable. Whether that be about drugs, love, life, battling demons, etc... It's even worst when you spam his music every day. I feel like I can't save myself from this hell hole and I don't think spamming juice's music helps. Does anyone else feel this way when listening to Juice?

2023.05.31 18:48 Defiant_Ad_9395 Is It Foolish to Assume All Men Are Dangerous?
As a kid growing up, my mom constantly beat me up over the that strangers were dangerous and I watched a lot of true crime, making me cautious and anxious AF as an adult.
Anyway, I am 26 years old and a virgin and haven't dated much because my mom constantly told me sleeping with people was gross and scary and that I'll get diseases, STDs, get knocked up, etc. and she didn't believe I was bright enough to use BC right because I'm kind of an airhead and forgetful.
I've been using dating apps a lot but the guys there are mostly disgusting or lazy and just message hey. But I came across a handsome guy (27M) who actually took the time to do a videocall with me, was super kind, polite, thoughtful, and asked me out for dinner.
He smiled the whole time, offered to pick me up (I didn't accept), checked in with me to see if I needed to use the restroom, got me steak and cocktails, and was just so sweet and handsome. I had major social anxiety during the d8 because I just didn't believe this was real and the guy noticed and I think it made him turned off.
Anyway, at the end of the d8, he invited me back to his place. I panicked because I thought if I went he would try to sleep with me, so I made up an excuse about my dad picking me up and ran into the convenience store. Surprisingly, the man smiled and was very understanding and gave me a hug and left. WTF as soon as he left I realized I made a huge mistake.
When I got home I texted him that I don't go back to the guy's place for safety reasons and because it was my parent's rule, he said that me saying this made him feel like I had doubts about him or didn't find him attractive. I told him that wasn't the case, he seemingly understood but never asked me out and unmatched me a few days later informing me he had taken things further with another person. He also blocked my friend request on FB and I can't find him anywhere else online nor with any other women online.
This was over a month ago and I keep having dreams about him, like for example I had a dream I went to a high-end spa and fitness club and ran into him and we slept together. My self-esteem is also shot to pieces and I don't know why he doesn't want me anymore. I think he was genuinely interested in me and I feel so foolish and paranoid for not going back to his place. I also feel quite rude not going back after he put in ALL that effort and think I probably came off as a boring worry wart. Thoughts?

| || | submitted by CanadianBaconne to Epilepsy [link] [comments]
I don't know if many know Amy Lee lost her brother Robby on January 5, 2018 to epilepsy. I recently can across a song she wrote in memory of his passing. https://youtu.be/64e4l3cDxCo
Give me a reason Make me whole again Wounds should become scars but I'm cracked instead Can't risk believing That I would stand a chance Frozen in the doorway don't want to leave the past
One more night What I wouldn't give to be with you For one more night
What if I can't see your light anymore Cause I've spent too long in the dark And I'm on my knees without shame begging to believe But I feel so far from heaven
Wake up to a new day Break my heart again Dreaming makes for sweet escape but I can't forget I'm back at the edge now I never needed you more Staring down the emptiness that I can't ignore
All my life Didn't want to dream I could lose you But you just smiled
What if I can't see your light anymore Cause I've spent too long in the dark And I'm on my knees without shame begging to believe But I feel so far from heaven
Is anyone out there, did you give up on us? Break this silence I'm crushed under love I don't want to lock down but we've lost so much Will you forgive me if I can't see your light anymore Cause I've spent too long in the dark And I'm on my knees without shame begging to believe But I feel so far from heaven
I feel so far
2023.05.31 18:47 mel2811 On my way to get some answers!
A little back story: i first started my period when i was around 11 years old, i remember it not being painful, but my second period was. i started having boyfriends young, so my mam decided it would be best for me to go on birth control as i also suffered from acne. sooooo around 13 to 19 i was on hormonal birth control pills, lucette, rivegedon, millinette. i didn’t have painful periods during this time. i came off birth control when i was 19, i broke up with my boyfriend and decided i wanted a break from taking a pill every single night lol. ever since then, ive had bad period pains. some are worse than others, and medication does usually help. but i have had cramps so bad that i’ve thrown up… i fell pregnant in 2021. i had a medication induced abortion because i was just 20 years old. i remember thinking: “the pain of the abortion won’t be bad, i bet it’s just as painful as my period pains”. i was wrongggg, they were so much worse. anyways, after this, i went back on the pill and then came off again in january 2023. the pill this time, did not help my period pains. i should probably mention that sex sometimes hurt, very very occasionally. i’ve had moments where once i’ve had sex, i’ll get intense cramps. but this rarely happens. fast forward to today… i have pretty bad health anxiety as over the past 6 months i have struggled to get a diagnosis for a chronic uti from the NHS, i had to go private to receive this diagnosis. my anxiety is sensing i have endo… i’m about to go down the route of trying to get a diagnosis before my symptoms get worse. any tips? especially regarding the NHS. obviously i’ll need a referral from my GP, but i know this will be a long journey. i would love some help!❤️

2023.05.31 18:47 peachfuzz_______ Seeking Career Advice
I currently work with an ABA company as an in home therapist. I have about 1-2 hours of supervision a week and then I’m left to it. I love the kiddos I work with, I only work with two. It had been hard feeling like I wasn’t doing work right, or wasn’t educated enough on my job, or trained enough. Once I got comfortable asking for support and got some positive feedback it eased. The families have told me I am their children’s best therapist.
I need to work more. I’d also like to go to grad school at some point. I love the flexibility of my schedule but have struggled with not having co workers, a solid routine, or not being able to actively learn and grow on the job. Any advice or feedback or personal stories? Thanks. Xx

2023.05.31 18:46 BulbaKat Afraid to even join here so cautious!
So I've been trying for my second baby for a while now. Struggled with my first, and had an early loss before my first.
I feel so robbed of being able to really emjoy the excitement of pregnancy. I never got that. I am so nervous about any little cramp even though I know it's normal! Even posting here makes me think I'm going to jynx it!
I tested earlier than my expected period because I just felt different. Was crushed because I saw a verrrrry faint line, and then after reading lots of posts, determined it was very likely an indent.
Tested 48 hours later anyway because I have no self control. Saw the line, but still soopp faint. This time the line stayed after the test dried! And tfablineporn agreed it was real! Tested again the next day and got obvious progression!
I'm also already nauseous!?!? Morning sickness so early?? With my first, I had no morning sickness until almost the end of my first trimester when it hit suuuper hard! This time I'm having a harder time hiding the news until 12 weeks because of the nausea! Crazy how difficult this pregnancy is!
Anyways - cautiously excited. I don't remember who posted it, but I saw a comment on tfablineporn that I absolutely loved. Someone was worried if the line was dark enough, and a comment said
"That test is positive. Today you are pregnant! Congratulations!" And that just really relaxed me! I hope that same comment helps others here!

2023.05.31 18:46 SlickRebel231 Looking for comprehensive software
I run a small business that sells services to the public. Because of the supplies needed for these services, I am in need of software solution that can facilitate online orders and scheduling, intake forms upon scheduling, CRM with the ability to add notes to customer files, and taking payments. We currently utilize three different services to facilitate this, but at the rate our business is growing, this model is not sustainable or scalable. Ideally, this software would have some kind of built-in rewards program that would allow us to offer rewards to repeat customers.
I've looked at PocketSuite, but this is not a feasible option for us, because it's solely run from a mobile app. I've checked out their desktop version, but it's in beta and has severely limited options.
I've looked at Square, which seems to be the best option, but I'm confused as to what all I need for this. What I've gathered (and correct me if I'm wrong) is that for Square, I would need to use several different Square services; one for appointments, one for POS, one to add team members, etc.
I've also looked into using Calendly, but it seems this would only allow customers to schedule services, and would not allow for walk-up customers when I'm at an event or anything.
I would love some insight on what solutions companies that sell both scheduled and on-demand services are using, how you're capturing and managing customer information, how you're taking payments, and so on.

2023.05.31 18:46 ThrowRAsaddest My (26F) boyfriend (24M) boyfriend punched a hole in my bedroom wall after I insisted he apologize to me.
It shattered any illusion of safety I had to be frank. For some context, I am a survivor of DV and SA. Repeatedly traumatized but I’m in therapy for my cPTSD and I’m making wonderful improvements. He knows about my mental health and history of abuse and we have been together for about a year. He’s met my son and lived with us for about two months now. We have previous boundaries stated where I have consented to lighter forms of BDSM and a dynamic where he can sort of “take what he wants”. Which is normally something I’m very into and usually never a problem. Until it was, that is.
We were getting down to business so to speak, but my machinery wasn’t responding fast enough and he ended up hurting me while trying to penetrate me. It’s never really happened before so I was shocked and asked him to stop because I was in not-at-all-sexy pain and ended up having a flashback from it. He stopped and my tears started welling up. He then looked at me and sort of sighed and went to the living room to watch his shows. This upset me because he didn’t actually check on me or express any regret immediately. I stayed behind trying to regulate my feelings.
So now I’m in pain, upset and his lack of concern triggered the hell out of me and caused me to shut down; which made him call me out to sit down and ask what my problem was since I didn’t follow him into the living room. I explained it really hurt, that he should have checked in on me, apologized for hurting me and that I was upset/triggered. I also made sure to tell him it wasn’t his fault and that I know he didn’t mean to. But still. He then argued that he did stop when I asked and that he didn’t do anything on purpose, it’s usually fine therefore he did nothing wrong and I wasn’t owed an apology. This made me cry and argue that yes, you do apologize when someone is in pain even though you might not have meant it. He accused me of accusing him of hurting him and when I continued to insist I deserved an apology he raised his voice at me, shouting again that he didn’t owe me an apology before walking off and putting his fist through my bedroom wall.
That sent me into my first full blown panic attack in months, which he had to snap me out of. It was scary. I feel like I don’t know him at all.
As a fun little add on I can tell you that the day after, I had to deal with the psychological fallout from the stress and spent the day having about three times more flashbacks than usual. I told him about them because he insisted. I usually keep it to myself because I believe it better my psychologist help me process it. He said he wanted to be there for me to make up for his behavior, but instead he just kept playing video games while I shared my horrific memories. About 30 minutes after that interaction he tried to shove his fingers inside me. I told him afterwards that was not okay and he again excused it by saying “it’s usually okay” so how could he know, but fine he was never going to do it again if I thought it was such a bad thing.
I feel so betrayed but his initial lack of reaction/remorse makes me worry I’m overreacting. I think he’s gaslighting me. I told him I need space to process these events alone and he insists that I should know the real him and that I should know it’s never going to happen again. But I don’t. He’s staying with his parents for now. I guess I just need to hear others opinions?? I feel heartbroken and lost. Did I do the right thing when I asked to be alone?
tl:dr my boyfriend of 1 year got defensive after hurting and triggering my ptsd during sex, but refused to apologize. He then got mad at my insistence that he should apologize and punched a hole in my bedroom wall. I’m crushed. Advice please.

2023.05.31 18:46 kaylahinty My boyfriend has decided himself that I am healed from the indescribable pain he put me through.
I know this is like a thousand other posts on here, but I am chronically lonely and honestly have no one in my life to really talk about this with, and I just truthfully need someone to see me even if it is just a little bit. I don’t want to make this extremely long, so a quick synopsis of the events I’m going to be referring to; My boyfriend and I were together for a year, when I caught him cheating with his ex girlfriend, literally during our day together I found him texting her things that I still cannot unglue out of my mind, all while we were out of town. He told me a few months prior that he was thinking about her again, but assured me he would never cheat on me and she wasn’t that type of girl. This was then followed with us breaking up and getting back together like 4x in 2 days, and a very hard month for me. We were still together, but he was still cheating, and it got extremely obvious. She would post tiktoks about how he’s hers and she’s better than me, he brought her to my house? because she had sex with some guy (no I don’t understand either.), and lied to me to take her on dates, there was just so much. I made a separate post during the break up about this all in heavy detail, if you’re interested. Flash forward he tells me he’s going to break up with me, yet fills my head with he loves me and he’s not sure, and then eventually breaks up with me. He tells her we break up way before I even knew he was for sure going to do it. He brought me to tour an apartment with him, and told me he felt like it was a bad idea because “I would never see it.” We break up, he takes her on a date the night after, she’s posting about him already and how he’s her husband. And for the next few months, he spends all his time with her, has sex with her, posts her (like 2 weeks after we broke up when he promised he would wait two months.), let’s her subtweet me and look at my social media all day everyday, and I was alone. And heartbroken, and I felt absolutely worthless. I got back together with him in February. I know you think I’m stupid, but I wanted him back so badly. I love him so much. I feel so devoted and loyal to him because I love him for who he is deep down, and because I missed him. And also because I wanted to prove something to myself probably. But it’s been fine, it’s been really good at some moments and really not good others but for the most part, I have been okay. I just keep everything to myself. I still look at her social media every single day, I cry at least twice a week over how I don’t look like her, and every time I get naked in front of him I think about her, and I feel absolutely disgusting and have to do mental gymnastics in order to pull myself out of that feeling. I still have days where I sleep as much as I can because I will be faced with mental torment if I’m awake. I am still hurting. I feel like I should view it as a privilege I got to get him back or something, but I am still hurting so badly. So, without airing too much of his business. He found out that she cheated on him, and got sexual with some other guy(s) or something. And apparently talked badly about him too. So he has been really upset. Extremely upset. I can’t explain too much but he has been so upset that I feel absolutely useless and helpless and like the time I spend with him does not even matter to him. He assures me it does, and that being around me is the only thing helping him right now. But last night he told me a few things that really hurt me. I’ve been letting him express his emotions about it, because I don’t want him to feel alone or like I can’t be trusted. I did bring up my feelings a few times, about how embarrassed I’ve felt in the past over her, or how I wish she didn’t have to affect our relationship so badly, and all it does is lead to fights. Fights where I can’t be trusted or I’m all of a sudden super selfish or where he’s telling me to leave him alone because he can’t stand me rn. All for talking about my feelings. I barely get to talk about them with him, ever. So last night he’s talking about it again, and I tell him that everything he’s feeling I have felt tenfold. His response is “No you haven’t. You get to be in your healing process. The torment is over. I have it so much worse you can’t even equate our pain.” And “I just left you for my ex. It happens. That is all it was.” And I just don’t understand. I wasn’t trying to equate it, I was telling him that he has made me feel that way exactly so I DO understand what he’s feeling. But it hurt me bad. I don’t get to ever talk to him about how hurt I still am, or how hurt I ever really was. It always leads to belittling or invalidating or arguments. The torment is far from over. For months before he broke up with me, I would sob and bawl in his lap and ask him to please stay with me, or to please stop hurting me so bad or to stop letting her hurt me so much. I cried every single day. I was left like nothing, and treated like that. It was “I have to do this for her!” Or “it was my birthday I wanted to post her stop making it about you” or him talking about having sex with her. When all I wanted was to be enough for him and to be loved by him. I just feel like he doesn’t see me at all. And sometimes I don’t know what I’m doing this for. I feel so ugly and worthless and useless and disgusting. I have to watch my words with him and talk him down because he’s so possessive over her that he can’t handle her being with someone else or something. And it hurts. He’s shown so much possession over her he’s never shown for me, and he blames it on me being a “good girl” and “loyal” and that I would “never give his away” but it’s not that. It has to be my body is not important enough to be saved for him or make him that upset. I just am so alone. I can’t do anything because I am worried about this man I love so much who is worried about the same girl and the same relationship that has caused me so much pain and has put me in such a deep hole I’m still not out of. And all he has to say to anything I feel about it is that I’m healed and it’s over? That her cheating on him was worse and that I’m just selfish? I’m hurting so bad. I don’t know how to feel or what to do. I feel like he doesn’t see me or understand me or even care to. I just feel so indescribably alone in this. Thank you for reading if you did. Much love.

2023.05.31 18:44 ok-veg 5 years after D-Day (he confessed to our EA) and going NC, he’s back and we’re stronger than ever.
I’m so glad I found this community. Sometimes what’s happening in my life doesn’t seem real and it’s such a relief to be able to share and get feedback on this. Mostly I wanted to tell my story in hopes it will give someone encouragement! First time posting on this new throwaway but I hope it won't be the last.
In 2018 we met on a company trip, two remote workers living on opposite ends of the country. During that week we had a few small interactions that weren’t at all untoward or saucy, but for some reason we both returned home from that trip feeling completely overwhelmed with the other. As soon as we got back to our respective home offices, we started constant communication over instant message and rapidly found ourselves falling in love, y’all know the drill.
We are both married but in very different situations. My marriage is 5 years long and was pretty much dead in the water from the start — it’s a long story that I won’t get into, but we have a completely dead bedroom and have slept in separate rooms for years, together for convenience. MM married very young and recently celebrated their 15 year wedding anniversary. They have a 10 year old kid together, hundreds of thousands in education debt for a degree she doesn’t use, as she doesn’t work at all right now and is actually trying to change careers to a completely new field. He’s been unhappy with their dynamic for years but has always seemed very resolved to just live with it.
Meeting him back in 2018 was like unlocking a door to a room in my heart that I never knew existed. I was a completely practical and unromantic person before him, and since him, literally everything makes me cry. Tender, sad, sweet, loving, it doesn’t matter. I feel so connected to everything in life after having experienced him. We were about 2 months deep in our exciting new ‘friendship’ when out of nowhere, he pulled his wife aside and told her he’d gotten unexpectedly close with someone. He didn’t warn me this was happening and with his confession, he went No Contact. I was effectively ghosted. I cannot begin to describe the pain my body and soul went through at that time, having no idea what had happened. It was obvious she found out but I had no idea how. I saw weekly marriage counseling appointments appear on his work calendar, then after a few weeks disappear. I watched him log in and out every day without bothering him. About a month after D-Day he sent me a cease & desist type of message informing me that we were not to have contact unless it was work related. We saw each other in person only one time after that, and we talked for a long time, but nothing physical ever happened between us. It was always clear that in spite of whatever he felt for me, he was choosing his family and the comfort of what he’d always known. I never blamed him for his choices, in some ways seeing him “do the right thing” at the expense of his own pride and happiness made me love him even more.
I found a better job in early 2021 and left that company. Hadn’t seen nor heard from him since. All of his socials are locked or dormant and the only thing I could see for all these years was his Spotify profile and a couple of playlists. I scoured this looking for secret messages or clues for a long time before I eventually gave up and resigned myself that it was over.
PRESENT DAY STUFF
Fuck, y’all. One night in March I was feeling sad and dug into his Spotify for the ten millionth time, but for the first time in a long time. One of the playlists I knew he was curating for me back in the day suddenly had A BUNCH OF NEW SONGS ON IT, all added within the last 2 weeks. My eyes were as round as saucers!! Then an hour later I got a notification that he’d looked at my LinkedIn profile. I was SWIMMING. The next day I saw he’d sent me an email and I LOST MY FUCKING MIND. An enormous wall of text with everything I’d ever wanted to hear and more. He thought about me every day. At night he’d look at the moon and talk quietly hoping to send me messages. Most touching, he got extremely into a special interest of mine and during the time we spent apart, we both got hugely into this hobby without having any idea that the other one was too. He invested hundreds of hours and dollars into something that made him feel close to me this entire time.
We picked right back up where we left off without missing a beat. I was very cautious and scared because of what happened last time — what if he started feeling guilty and got spooked again? I was careful. We slowly got to know one another again but we both feel we are soulmates, it’s been loud and clear this entire time. Magnets, attached by an invisible thread, twin flames, however you want to describe it: this is my person and I am his.
He recently granted me access to a security camera in his back yard so I can see him participating in our shared hobby whenever I want. This also means I sometimes catch a glimpse of his wife, or even the two of them interacting together. The first time I tuned in and caught them both standing there together my breath caught in my throat, I was so scared for what I was going to see… but it’s exactly as he described. He has no excitement in his voice for her. He is not warm or affectionate to her. She doesn’t engage or interact with the activities he’s doing. Sometimes she talks about herself or her studies. It’s so clear to me that the love is gone. It has been such a weight lifted off my shoulders to know this is broken whether I am in the picture or not.
He’s integrating me into his life this time. He finds time for us to have phone calls, which never happened in 2018. He’s sent me dozens of videos just talking to me and telling me how important I am to him. It’s overwhelming how much this man trusts me with his entire life, literally — if even 1% of the content I have was shared with his wife everything would instantly implode. No one has ever seen me or loved me like this. He gives me so many gifts in the ways he can. It’s extremely special and delicate and I treasure this time with him so much.
WHY AM I POSTING?
I’m scared as hell. I have never had so much to lose and he talks lately like he might actually be willing to leave one day. My biggest concern is that he doesn’t seem to have a “this sucks and I’d rather be alone” limit when it comes to his marriage — I don’t think he would leave unless he had me to leave TO, if that makes sense. It’s a little flattering but it mostly makes me feel so much pressure. I can’t imagine how he will make it work financially without me, either. He doesn’t disparage his wife, to me it just sounds like they are different people, but every now and again he’ll describe an interaction that he thinks is normal but gives me pause — sometimes I think she’s legitimately mentally ill and I struggle with if that’s true, if leaving her would make him a shitty person. Also… we have barely even hugged. Our connection is incredible but it seems extremely ill advised to pursue a more serious future before we can spend time together alone in person… but what if that causes another shame and guilt spiral that forces him from my life again? I am very much so trapped between loving what I have and desperately craving more.
I’m just trying to relax and be patient and enjoy him while I have him. We both agree we want more and are taking each day as it comes.

2023.05.31 18:44 jessicarosa720 Starting a small business and Sanrio
I am wanting to start a little business. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated! I am wanting to make a online store with fun gadgets and accessories! How should I go about starting my business? Do I do all the legal stuff first? Like getting the business registered? Or do I play around with products I like and order random stuff to find good quality stuff?
I’ve been seen the mystery scoops and bundles on tic tok, esty, fb and a bunch of other places. I love the idea of it, it seems so fun! I don’t want to make it my business completely but it is something I would like to add to it. I know Sanrio is a big thing right now and on their website they clearly state that you are not allowed to resell stuff with hello kitty on it etc. without their permission. but I see that all over the place… how is everyone selling this stuff? I seen stuff on Alibaba.com I want to get that is from a verified seller but I’m scared because I don’t want them to come after me for selling Alibaba.com sanrio products. Do I need to get a license agreement with them? I feel so confused researching this stuff and I feel like I’m just confusing myself. Can anyone give any advise on this?

2023.05.31 18:44 CalmGains Earning plays for CRWD, CRM, AI, OKTA, and JWN
Let's do the shotgun approach.
I'm going to be discussing all five earning plays in one post, and then put my conclusions at the end. All of these stocks are putting out earnings today, after hours. Yesterday I posted about HPQ going down, and it went down, puts up ~80%. So let's get into the details of this post.
Starting with CrowdStrike Holdings (CRWD)
, where analysts are predicting earnings of $0.509 per share compared to earnings of $0.310 per share in the same quarter of the previous year. They are also expecting the company to report $677.4 million, an increase of over the prior year quarter when the company reported $487.8 million. With regard to the current fiscal year, analysts expect a profit per share of $2.33, while the previous year saw a profit of $1.54.
CrowdStrike’s first-quarter fiscal 2024 results are likely to reflect the benefits of the continued solid demand for its products, given the healthy environment of the global security market. The increasing number of people logging into employers' networks has triggered a greater need for security and might have spurred the demand for CRWD’s products in the fiscal first quarter. A strong pipeline of deals indicates the same.
Stellar revenue growth in subscriptions might have contributed significantly to the first quarter’s top line. Further, the increasing number of net new subscription customers may have acted as a tailwind.
Moreover, CrowdStrike’s collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) is an upside, benefiting the company from its products’ availability on the AWS platform. The expansion in the volume of transactions through Amazon’s AWS Marketplace, growth in co-selling opportunities with AWS salesforce and the uptake of AWS service integrations are likely to have contributed to CRWD’s earnings in the to-be-reported quarter.
However, elevated expenses for enhancing sales and marketing capabilities and increased investments in research and development are likely to have weighed on the company’s fiscal first-quarter bottom line.
Next is the software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider Salesforce (CRM)
, wallstreet expects CRM to post adjusted earnings of $1.61 per share, which is on the higher end of the company’s guidance and nearly double that of the Q1FY23 figure of $0.98 per share. CRM has consistently beaten earnings expectations in the past eight quarters
, with a strategically built portfolio covering virtually all aspects of digital transformation. So far this year, the stock has gained 59.9%, outperforming the S&P 500's 10% gain.
Similarly, the analysts expect Salesforce to post revenue of $8.18 billion, which is also on the higher end of the company’s outlook and represents a 10.4% year-over-year growth. However, sequentially, the revenue expectation shows a modest decline of 2.4%.
Salesforce’s first-quarter performance is likely to have gained from its focus on building and expanding relationships with leading brands across industries and geographies. Also, significant growth opportunities in the public sector are expected to have been a tailwind in the fiscal first quarter.
The company’s ability to offer integrated solutions for customers’ business problems is likely to have been a key growth driver. The firm’s products, like Trailhead and myTrailhead, are helping companies through their transformation processes and increasing business scale with modern technology.
Salesforce’s quarterly performance is likely to have benefited from the robust demand environment as customers are undergoing a major digital transformation. The customer relationship management software provider’s focus on introducing more aligned products per customer needs is expected to have boosted its top line in the quarter.
Also, the acquisitions of Slack, Mobify and Vlocity are anticipated to have aided CRM’s top line during the to-be-reported quarter. Growth across its four major cloud service offerings, Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, Platform, and Other and Marketing & Commerce Cloud, is anticipated to have boosted Salesforce’s subscriptions and supported its revenues.
However, a decline in software spending by small and medium businesses amid the macroeconomic uncertainty due to the pandemic and the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war might have affected Salesforce’s fiscal first-quarter performance. Further, stiff competition from Oracle and Microsoft is a concern, along with forex headwinds.
On May 26, Goldman Sachs analyst Kash Rangan
reiterated his Buy rating on CRM stock ahead of its earnings report. Rangan has set a price target of $325, implying a massive 50.8% upside potential from current levels.
Rangan is highly optimistic about Salesforce’s quarterly winning streak and the potential tailwind from the artificial intelligence (AI) race. Even so, the analyst cited that this will be the first time that CRM will recognize a sequential decline in subscription revenue.
Despite that, Rangan noted, “As a system of record with a plethora of customer data that can help train its LLM (large language models), CRM can benefit from Generative AI. As the macro begins to inflect, we see CRM being well positioned as it realizes the benefits from sales efficiency efforts and workforce reductions of recent quarters.” Salesforce said it will integrate its generative AI
Einstein GPT into every facet of the company - sales, service, marketing, commerce and IT interaction. Pricing details were not disclosed.
I know everyone wants to hear it, next is C3.ai (AI)
. There's no denying it, the growing popularity of artificial intelligence, in particular ChatGPT, is more than just hype. It is real. As you may have noticed, one company that's riding high on the AI wave is C3.ai, which has seen its stock more than doubled as interest among investors surge. The stock has gone on a breathtaking run over the past thirty days, rising close to 90%, compared with the 3% rise in the S&P 500 index. On a year-to-date basis the performance looks even more astonishing, skyrocketing 194% compared with the 10% rise in the S&P 500 index. How much higher can its shares go?
C3.ai is benefiting from the increasing adoption of its services, including C3 Generative AI Product Suite, C3 AI Ex Machina (wasn't that a movie?), C3 AI ESG and C3 AI CRM. An expanding product portfolio is expected to have remained a key catalyst in driving demand for the company’s fully-integrated AI products in the fiscal fourth quarter.
During the to-be-reported quarter, the company made significant development toward its Generative AI platform, facilitating the ease of use and the capability of its enterprise AI applications. This is expected to have driven the top line.
C3.ai has been benefiting from strengthening industry and technology-specific partnerships. From its industry partnerships with the likes of Baker Hughes in oil & gas & chemical markets and Booz Allen in government defense sector, C3.ai has been leveraging domain expertise to expand its customer footprint.
With its tech partners, C3 has been benefiting from strength in its sales capabilities besides tech and product functionality. Partnerships with the likes of Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure and Accenture are expected to have driven the top line in the to-be-reported quarter.
Aside from recently announcing that its generative AI product suite is now available as a public offer on Alphabet's Google (GOOG , GOOGL) Cloud Marketplace, the company also issued preliminary results that included positive cash flow in FQ4. This suggests that the company’s $800 million cash currently on its balance sheet will grow. Its management has sought to change the company’s business model, shifting the business away from short-term revenues to a transaction-based pricing method, while boosting long-term revenues by growing its customer base.
Those initiatives appear to be working with growth rates starting to re-accelerate. CEO Thomas Siebel said, "Since we announced C3 Generative AI, we've had intense interest from current customers and prospects to get these capabilities deployed and in use across their systems.” The product suite features enterprise search, allowing businesses to search across their database to locate and retrieve relevant information. On Wednesday, the company will look to prove that it is here to stay and has a sustainable path towards profitability.
For the three months that ended April, Wall Street expects the Redwood City, Calif.-based company to post a per-share loss of 17 cents on revenue of $71.32 million. This compares to the year-ago quarter when the loss was 21 cents per share on revenue of $72.32 million. For the full year, the loss is expected to be 46 cents per share, narrowing from 73 cents a year ago, while full-year revenue of $265.67 million would rise 5.1% year over year.
The company still has a lot to prove and important questions to answer. Namely, does it have a strong enough moat to establish a leadership position in enterprise AI software? C3.ai ended Q3 with 236 customers, the same total reported at the end of Q2. In other words, there has been no sequential growth in the customer base, suggesting there’s a lack in competitive advantage and/or product interest.
As noted earlier, a few quarters ago, the company moved towards a new pricing model to help onboard new customers at a lower startup cost. This will allow the company to charge more when these same customers utilize the software at higher levels. As a result of the pricing change, there was a noticeable dip in Q3 revenues. Although the company surpassed consensus estimates, producing Q3 revenue $66.67 million, the figure declined 4.45% year over year.
The Q3 adjusted loss of 6 cents per share did surpass estimates by 16 cents. Despite the nearly 5% dip in revenues, the stock soared higher. Investors looked beyond the current numbers and instead focused on the fact that the trough in revenues had been reached. The belief is that the company’s consumption-based pricing model is now poised to generate even more revenue than the subscription model it once used. As such, the guidance the company provides today will be a key factor in the stock’s near-term direction.
Strong demand for the company’s Enterprise AI software, driven by accelerated digital modernization across major industries, is expected to have aided fiscal fourth-quarter performance. Okta, Inc (OKTA)
is next. analysts expect earnings of $0.118 per share compared to losses of $0.270 per share from the same quarter last year. They expect Okta to report sales of $511.0 million, an increase of 23.16% over the same period last year. Looking at the full year, analysts expect a profit of $0.760 per share. In the previous year there was a profit of $0.040 per share.
The company’s first-quarter fiscal 2024 results are expected to reflect the benefits of increased use cases of identity solutions and an expanding product portfolio.
Okta is expected to have experienced strong demand for its Workforce and Customer Identity solutions. Continuous innovation in its solutions have helped Okta score notable enterprises such as Sonos, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, MassMutual and OpenAI. Its products’ ability to automate processes, secure data and reduce costs has been another positive.
Demand for the company’s solutions has been strong due to the deployment of cloud and hybrid IT, digital transformation projects and the adoption of Zero Trust security. The momentum is expected to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter.
These factors are expected to have expanded the customer base in the fiscal first quarter. In the fiscal fourth quarter, Okta added 550 customers, bringing the total customer count to 17,600, up 17% year over year. Customers with more than $100K in Annual Contract Value increased 27% year over year.
However, Okta is expected to have faced challenges in execution and heightened attrition. Challenging macro environment and unfavourable forex are potential headwinds. These factors are expected to have hurt its fiscal fourth-quarter prospects.
Finally, let's take a look at Nordstrom (JWN)
. Their first-quarter fiscal 2023 results are expected to reflect the significant impacts of decelerating demand trends. Reduced consumer spending amid lower income groups, stemming from the tough macroeconomic environment, has been hurting revenues across both banners. Analysts expect losses of $0.105 per share compared to losses of $0.060 per share in the same quarter of the previous year. They also are expecting the company to report $3.16 billion, an decrease of 11.59% over the prior year quarter. With regard to the current fiscal year, analysts expect a profit per share of $1.87, while the previous year saw a profit of $1.69.
Management expects the impact of the winding down of Canada operations to hurt revenues in fiscal 2023. The impacts of the closure are likely to get reflected in the fiscal first-quarter results. I anticipate a decline in revenues in the to-be-reported quarter. Moreover, I expect sales to decline for both the Nordstrom banner and the Nordstrom Rack segment.
In order to maintain healthy inventory levels, Nordstrom has been undertaking additional markdowns. The higher markdowns have been weighing on gross margin, which is likely to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter.
However, the company is committed to enhancing customer experience via its Closer to You strategy, optimized supply chain and better efficiency. These endeavors are expected to have slightly offset the aforementioned declines.
Nordstrom has been focused on technology advancement by boosting e-commerce and digital networks, supply-chain channel improvement, and marketing efforts. The digital business has been witnessing gains from improved digital traffic across both Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack, as well as increased utilization of Buy Online, Pick Up In-Store service. Its mobile app has also been performing well. Alongside these, the integration of Rack.com into Nordstrom.com
is anticipated to have contributed to the company's top line in the to-be-reported quarter. So what to do for earnings?
Just to keep it sweet and simple, I'm getting calls on CRWD, CRM, AI, and OKTA. And I'm getting puts on JWN. I don't expect all of them to hit, I just like to throw my money on the table and see what flies. Keep in mind tho, as with all my other posts, these are entirely meant to just educate people about what we tend to look for when making an earning prediction. It by no means can be considered financial or investment advice.

2023.05.31 18:43 Witty-Persimmon9301 AITA for wanting to hear what my boyfriend's friend has to say about me?
I really need to know if I'm in the wrong here for this one. Yesterday, my bf got his first tattoo (33) and he's been wanting one for years especially since I have a few myself (30). I asked him if I could send a video of him getting his tattoo to a particular friend because we both know she thinks our relationship won't last and that we are very different from each other (I nicknamed her SideHoe because according to my bf, she's possessive of him like she is his gf). He said he didn't have a problem with it and to send it. SideHoe replied with her disapproval but said if he was happy, then she's happy for him. I sent a msg (with his approval) saying my gf loves it; to which SideHoe replied "mad beef call me after". I started laughing because we both had a feeling she had some negative feelings about me and I was curious to hear but he refused to engage further. He said it was unnecessary drama for him to call her up and put her on the spot and he didn't want to engage any further. SideHoe doesn't know me very well and has made a lot of judgements and assumptions about me - all of which I never took to heart; I just laughed it off. I just wanted to hear what else she had to say just for shits and giggles, but my bf insisted that it was childish and unnecessary even though he himself has done this with other people/friends in the past. I don't know why this situation is any different.

2023.05.31 18:43 _capricornio_ Let me know what y’all think!
In my opinion, Kyra should come out with the truth no matter how bad it is. I feel as if though Kyra owes the people who, in the past supported her, her channel, and her family an apology video. She needs to make a sit down video and explain everything from the beginning and everything she’s been lying about, and the rumors like her cheating on Oscar, her and Preston texting back and forth in that video (while they both had partners) her and Preston’s relationship timeline (the real one not the one she puts out). Also, she needs to give Hannah an apology in that video and tell us why she did what she did to someone who loves her and her kids as well as an apology to her kids for breaking the family up over some community D*ck. Am I being too nosy for wanting a video like that and I should mind my business or do you guys think that she hast to make a video telling the whole truth? I think people would’ve respected her more if she came out with the truth earlier. Let me know your thoughts.

2023.05.31 18:43 Southern-Win1735 Missing delhi...
Bhai... So I was in delhi for the last one year objected for the prep of my entrance exam. I studied hard gave every test but could not make it. I had to move to kota and the real problem is not about the convenience and facilities. it's the friends and the moments which I hardly would be able to live again. For context i used to live in South ex and every night me and my friends used to go for long walks and then get back to library and study late night. I just loved the vibe of that area. Now I m stuck in the outskirts of kota which gets absolutely empty and ghosty and now it's taking a mental toll on me.

2023.05.31 18:43 moonlapse_vertiqo I had a fight with a Thai girl and ended my friendship
So, let me tell you about this girl I met. At first, she seemed really nice, kind, funny, and let's not forget, sexy and kinky in the bed. We were just keeping things casual, hanging out without any serious relationship plans.
But then, about two weeks later, we got into a discussion about politics. I brought up the infamous events of October 6, 1976, known as "เหตุการณ์ 6 ตุลา" in Thai history.
That's when things took a turn. She insisted that I couldn't truly understand what happened or who was involved without actually living in the country. I argued that I had read up on the topic from various sources, but she brushed it off, saying that only people who experienced it firsthand could truly comprehend.
To top it off, she claimed that those involved were actually terrorists. Can you believe that?
But that's not all. She also had this weird thing against this guy named Pita, simply because he was good-looking. She believed people only liked him because of his looks, which I thought was a bit shallow.
On top of that, she complained about financial problems in the country but still supported and voted for this older military guy, Prayut Chan-o-cha. She had this deep love for her country and whenever I questioned the ruling regime, she defended it by saying it helped the less fortunate.
We even disagreed on the topic of mandatory military service. She said "This "handsome" guy expressed his belief that it should be banned" and she said we need soldiers to protect our country against enemies.
She strongly disagreed with him and me, while I raised concerns about the role of the state and its citizens, questioning their dynamic. She said some of them deserve to die.
As if that wasn't enough, I tried to bring up the struggles in other countries like Argentina, Turkey, Brazil, Iran, and Venezuela. But she dismissed it, saying that inflation and bad things "can happen anywhere", so it's not specific to those countries. And then she had the nerve to say she hated politics!
I was just trying to have a conversation and discuss different perspectives, you know?
Well, when I continued to delve into the early history of her country and questioned the legitimacy of the state and its relationship with the citizens, she had had enough. She gave an ultimatum to me not to talk about her country and politics like that, so I said, "Hell yeah," and walked away, continuing on my own path.
I couldn't ignore the facts:
the honorable Thai people who have shed blood and tears for justice,
the children going to bed with their stomachs empty;
and the Thai intellectuals who are oppressed and can't return home. I refuse to disregard all of that just to suck some big titties. 🤝โลกคือหม้อ เราคือทัพพี. 🤝
