2023.05.31 16:32 basset46863 Grandma PC $400-$600 support for either 2hdmi or 1dp+1hdmi
Looking for a PC for a grandma that is almost ready to retire. So just general computing and browsing. But she does like two monitors she has now. So computer needs either 2 HDMI -or- 1HDMI + 1DP.
Best I found so far already built is HP 15L TG02-0346st with GTX1660 for $589.99 + shipping + tax. That had i5-12400, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, GTX1660, Win11home.
If saving money over this prebuilt or much better parts then prebuilt, then I'm fine building it myself for her. I just don't want to put in the time and effort and risk if it only saves a couple dollars.

2023.05.31 16:29 death_redone Merită mersul la curve în situația mea?
Am 25 de ani și nu am avut o relație serioasă de mai bine de 6-7 ani. Am avut dintotdeauna probleme grave cu anxietatea și depresia m-a lovit la începutul școlii generale. Astea 2 împreună m-au făcut să mă izolez social și asta m-a băgat într-un loop agravant cu depresia. Nu am avut prieteni, doar colegi sau cunoștințe până la facultate. Când am început facultatea, m-am mutat la cămin și am încercat să ies cât mai mult din zona aia de confort și am mers până la un punct.
Mi-am făcut prieteni și prietene bune, am avut și am anturaje pentru cam toate situațiile (de la beții până la mersul la muzeu). Apoi am intrat într-o relație cu o fată care părea super ok, dar a fost horror. A fost o combinație dintre autismul meu social din perioada aia (nu mai avusesem vreo relație, nici măcar nu mă sărutasem cu vreo fată până atunci) și personalitatea ei extrem de toxică. Toată relația aia de câteva luni m-a băgat grav în depresie și am ajuns prin spitale cu vene tăiate. Apoi am dat de droguri și alcool și nu am mai fost treaz cam 2 ani de zile.
Nu povestesc asta pentru milă, nu-i vreun sob story, doar cer o părere. După faza aia cu relația, am pierdut aproape orice interes față de relații în general, nici măcar one night stand-uri sau friends with benefits n-am avut. M-am futut de câteva ori la beții, dar mereu eram extrem de beat sau de drogat și îmi aduc aminte foarte puțin. Ce știu legat de experiențele astea e povestit de anturaj sau de fetele respective. Unele tipe erau foarte ok și voiau ceva mai mult, dar eu pur și simplu eram prea distrus ca să am destulă energie pentru o relație. By the way, am analizele făcute, nu am vreun std și a fost aproape mereu un prezervativ folosit.
Problema e alta: eu nu am agățat vreodată vreo tipă, nu m-am sărutat (cu excepția relației respective) sau futut vreodată treaz și habar nu am ce să fac. Am ieșit de câteva ori la date-uri, dar îmi stă pe creier ideea că dacă ajungem să ne sărutăm sau să ne futem nu o să știu ce să fac. Sunt pe deplin conștient că e o chestie instinctuală și că dacă am fost în stare să o fac beat, atunci probabil pot să o fac treaz. E o problemă tot legată de anxietate și mă gândeam sa merg la curve at some point (și nu pe centură, ceva mai ok) ca să "capăt experiență". Pur și simplu e genul de anxietate care mă "îngheață" și nu merge să strâng din dinți și să trec peste.
Nu am o problemă cu socializarea de zi cu zi, imi fac prieteni extrem de ușor. Arăt ok (chit că ar merge ceva sală ca să dau din burta jos), pot să vorbesc cu oricine ore întregi fără să o dau de gard, dar habar nu am cum să fac pasul de la friendly la agățat.
Ca să nu mai zic că deseori nu înțeleg hint-urile date de fete și le realizez abia după ce-mi atrage cineva atenția. De exemplu, am încercat să agat o fată, ne-am împrietenit și am ajuns la ceva petreceri la ea acasă. Plecam mereu cu taxi-ul, deși îmi tot zicea că pot să dorm la ea în cameră. Pur și simplu nu am înțeles substratul și mi-a zis ea acum câteva zile când ne-am întâlnit la o țigară. Too late, s-a logodit și urmează să se căsătorească curând 😂
Revenind la subiect, mă gândesc că nu am multe de pierdut dacă merg la curve. Păreri?

2023.05.31 16:25 Phoebedweeby Plant Questions in Central Oregon
Hello there. I wanted to make a post encouraging anyone from Deschutes or Crook County that has plant questions, indoor or outdoor to reach out to the local Plant Clinic run by Master Gardener volunteers.
What is Plant Clinic? Think of it as a doctors office for your plants. The basic gist is, if you have an issue with any plant, grass, tree, etc… indoor or outdoor, bring in a sample of the problem, or give us a call at one the extension offices. We take down as many detailed notes as possible, and then research the issue. We generally will ask that you take pictures of the issue and email those to us as well. We can also identify pests (some of us love identifying bugs!). Once we have done our research, we reach back out with as much information pertaining to the plant issue as we can, as well as providing solutions with no judgement.
This is a 100% free service. Central Oregon Master Gardeners are a completely volunteer based organization. We just really love plants, and gardening in Central Oregon (it’s a fun challenge!!!!) So please keep in mind when bringing us your sick plants, that we are not paid to do this, so please be very nice.
Things we do not identify, or are able to legally help with (we operate under OSU, which receives federal tax dollars): cannabis, anything mycology related (mushrooms ain’t plants hahaha).
If you are a professional landscaping service, please identify yourself as one so that we may transfer you to the correct person.
Here is the information for each county extension office:
Deschutes County 3800 SW Airport Way Building #4 Redmond, OR 97756
Phone: 541-548-6088 x79630 Hours: Monday-Thursday 9-5, Friday 9-1 (I think this is current for their hours, but will update if not)
Crook County 498 SE Lynn Blvd Prineville, OR 97754
Phone: 541-447-6228 Hours: Wednesday, 1-5 pm
I’m happy to answer any questions regarding plant clinic to the best of my ability. I just started the Master Gardener program in January though, so I am very new!
Have a great day everyone!

- Life cycles that generally embody apomictic (schizogony, sporogony) and sexual (gametogony) phases
The most vital species within the phylum Apicomplexa ar members of the category Sporozoea (spor_o-zo_e). the category name derives from most sporozoeans manufacturing a resistant reproductive structure or oocyst following amphimixis. Some members of this category, together with Plasmodium and coccidians, cause a range of diseases in farm animals and humans.
Life cycles of sporozoeans
Although the life cycles of sporozoeans vary significantly, bound generalizations ar potential. several ar living thing parasites, and their life cycles have 3 phases.
Schizogony is multiple fission of Associate in Nursing apomictic stage in host cells to make more (usually asexual) people, referred to as merozoites, that leave the host cell and infect several alternative cells.

2023.05.31 15:58 Embite A Comprehensive Guide to Railroads Online
Hello new/returning player! Whether you're considering buying or you've just installed it and don't know where to start, there's a good chance you have some questions about the game. I've been playing pretty much since launch, and since the Discord imploded and the in-game tutorial kinda sucks, I figured this would be a good place to put together a comprehensive guide to everything you need to know about Railroads Online. Feel free to scroll through the headings to find what you're looking for!
Is it worth the money?
Railroads Online is exactly what it says on the tin and exactly what you see in the trailer. There are railroads, they are online, and you do have complete freedom to build your own railroad in a sandbox environment. If that's your cup of tea, try it! Steam's refund policy allows you to refund the game if you have less than 2 hours played and you've owned it for less than 2 weeks, so even if you don't like it when you start, you have a safety net. That said, this game is in early access
. And, the regularly-updated branch is a beta to the early access
, so it is seriously lacking polish in certain areas. This game is physics-based, and that can take a toll on performance for trains longer than a dozen cars, and the Beta branch reportedly has some people's GPUs on their knees. Updates also regularly introduce bugs, ranging from mildly amusing to make-sure-you-back-up-your-save-file. For some people that sort of thing is understandably not worth $35, while for others it gives the game character. I've gotten close to 10 hours of playtime for every dollar I spent on it, so obviously I'd be inclined to say it's worth it, but everybody's experience will be different.
The following guide is geared towards the Beta version of the game. This version has the most features, looks the best, and receives regular updates, though there are a number of known performance and stability issues. The majority of it still applies to both versions of the game regardless, though the largest changes have been to track laying.
Getting Started Warning:
Remember, this is Railroads Online
. There is no "offline" mode, strictly speaking, but you can drag the "player limit" slider down to 1. If you're going to play with other people, use a password
. If you ever forget to, and someone comes in and undoes all of your hard work, you will never forget again. You have been warned!
Your first railroad
So, you've launched the game! Congratulations! Now what? Well, it's probably good to get yourself oriented first.
The game spawns you in on the spawning platform. The three tracks you've spawned next to are permanent, and they are where new equipment spawns when you purchase it. You are given Betsy, a flatcar, and $2000 for free, and the rest is left up to you.
Before you run any trains, you'll need to build some track to run them on. Take care here, because there is no edit tool; if you build something, the only way to change it is to delete sections and rebuild. Measure twice, cut once, and make it look nice the first time so you don't have to redo it later. Or something.
Press G to bring up the majority of your sandbox tools: Track Construction, Facilities, Locomotives (the shop), Demolish, Rerail, and Logging, plus the Respawn button. I will cover all of these tools in time, but for now, all you need to be familiar with are the Track Construction tab, the Demolish tool, and the Logging tool.
Track laying in this game has been... fucky... for a long time. It's a LOT better now than it used to be, but I still recommend downloading RROx (Railroads Online Extended) and using the fast sprint cheat when you're building. It will save you hours (not to mention the other features it offers).
First of all, everything in this game except for rolling stock is FREE! Go nuts! Want to triple-track the main? You can! Want to fill the entire southern half of the map with water towers? Your call! Fun first, safety third. Anyway:
In the Track Construction menu, you will be greeted by a bunch of track options. Feel free to place them wherever to get an idea of what they are.
The first row is, of course, 3 foot narrow-gauge rail. The I, II, and III varieties are identical except for the amount of ballast. I has some, II has a bit more, and III has a lot. On cliff faces, too much ballast can cause ugly clipping, so it's best to use tier I when you can and step it up if it's too short. The game will not let you place a node if the spline is not supported by ground or some other structure at every point.
The default building mode is spline mode. Click once to place the first node, and click somewhere else to place the second node. Boom! You've placed your first track segment. If you click on the ground, it will face whatever direction your UI currently says it's facing, but if you click on another piece of track it will do its best to connect to the other node as smoothly as possible. This can result in some janky turns if you're not careful, so keep that in mind. There are keybinds to rotate the endpoints to face the direction you want them to. Track will not snap to another track unless you see the glowing chain link icon above it.
If you don't see it at first, walk around a little, staring at the desired connection point until you trigger the hitbox.
The other building mode is circle mode. It does what it says on the tin– your track will follow a circular arc with the radius you specify. Use smaller segments if you can, because for some reason the angles get weird if you try to do more than 90° in a single segment. In this mode, you can snap to existing track on your first click, but it will not snap to another track for your second click because it only cares about following the circle. This build mode is useful for a number of reasons, not least of which being the ability to see what your maximum turning radius is. A 30 meter radius is the minimum, but on your main line you should aim to stay above 60-100 meters to avoid derailments at high speeds.
Next in the menu: switches. If you know what trains are, you probably know what switches are. In RRO, if a switch is pointing one way, and you come in from the other, it will automatically align with you to let you through, unless
A.) you are in a handcart, or B.) it is the 3-way stub switch. Also note that they are not perfect mirror images of each other (not sure how they managed to mess that up but oh well), which may cause problems when creating complex structures like yards.
The 90° crossover piece is your friend when designing parallel tracks. You can chain them together to ensure equal spacing, matching angles, or you can simply use them as placeholder nodes to snap your track to if you need to delete part of it. Two crossover pieces are far enough apart for two trains to pass each other comfortably, so it's handy for smoothing your double-tracks, if you choose to build them. The 45° crossover piece is also good, for when you want a spacer piece that's slightly longer than the 90°, or if you don't want your simple wyes to be a hundred feet across. (Still waiting on that 10° crossover, Astragon.)
Turntables are what you expect them to be. The plain Turntable I is small enough to fit in some tight spaces like yards, but a lot of locomotives will only fit on Turntable II. Turntables have historically been a bit buggy, particularly if you reload a save while something is on it, so be wary.
The bumper is a bumper. 'Nuff said.
Embankments are ballast without the rail. They're nice as decoration around the base of certain structures, or as filler in between the tracks in yards, or as ballast for bumpers and crossovers. You can also access a similar trackless version of the stone wall by using its drop-down menu.
Bridges and stone walls work exactly the same as ballast track: they will not allow you to place a node if the spline is not supported everywhere. However, there is a workaround for this: nodes can be supported by ballast. If you use small enough segments, 3 Ft Rail III can be used to cross gaps using just the previous segment's ballast as support. If you fill the gap with ballast, you can place your bridge on top of it, and then remove the ballast later. You can pretty it up with some stone walls as supports, if you want to.
And that's everything currently in the Track Construction menu! The Engine Shed and the Coaling Tower also have small pieces of track, but they are kept in the Facilities menu. Note:
You can make it to pretty much every industry in the game with less than a 3% grade. In real life, this is considered pretty steep, but in-game you can get away with even steeper track if you can't be bothered to work out the best path.
The demolish tool is delightfully simple. It deletes things! By default, it only deletes rail, but that can be changed with the drop-down menu. Be very careful using the "All" option-- you could accidentally delete your rolling stock.
The Logging Tool
The logging tool will probably be your second most-used tool, right after track construction, because everywhere you want to place track, there are trees in the way. You can click almost anywhere on the tree to remove it, and it does this for free, but you might have trouble removing a tree if the bottom two-thirds of it are buried in ballast. If spam-clicking feels tedious, you can hold down the mouse button until the saw finds a part of the trunk that it likes.
That should be everything you need to know to build your first railway!
In Railroads Online, your objective is money
. Moneymoneymoneymoneymoneymoney. But u/Embite
, I hear you ask, how do I
Well, I'm glad you asked! The answer is industries
There are 9 industries in RRO, which you can see on the map: the Smelter, the Sawmill, the Logging Camp, the Freight Depot, the Iron Ore Mine, the Oil Field, the Ironworks, the Refinery, and the Coal Mine.
Each industry has inputs and outputs. For example, the Logging Camp has two output platforms: one for logs and one for cordwood. To load a car with the output, simply position your railcar where the crane drops the cargo and click the crane to start loading. For some outputs like the iron mine, there's a chute instead of a crane, but it's the same idea. When you unload a car, the cargo teleports to the side you clicked on, so make sure you're standing on the platform that you want to deliver to.
The inputs and outputs for each industry is listed in the table below.
|Location ||Input ||Output |
|Freight Depot ||Anything ||Nothing |
|Logging Camp ||Nothing ||Logs, Cordwood |
|Sawmill ||Logs ||Beams, Lumber |
|Iron Ore Mine ||Beams, Lumber ||Iron Ore |
|Smelter ||Iron Ore, Cordwood ||Raw Iron, Rails |
|Coal Mine ||Beams, Rails ||Coal |
|Ironworks ||Lumber, Raw Iron, Coal ||Steel Pipes, Tools |
|Oil Field ||Beams, Steel Pipes, Tools ||Crude Oil |
|Refinery ||Lumber, Steel Pipes, Crude Oil ||Oil Barrel |
You should notice a few things:
- Logging Camp has no inputs. This is where the supply chain of RRO starts. The lumberjacks do all of their work for free, and they will never run out of logs, or cordwood.
- Freight Depot (the big warehouse near spawn) has no outputs. This is where you can return to sell whatever products you've collected and turn them in for straight cash. You get the same amount of money regardless of which buyer you send cargo to, so it's recommended that you try to deliver to another industry whenever possible, since you get money AND more cargo to sell, rather than just the money. If all you need is money though, the Freight Depot is where to go.
- There is a clear progression from one industry to the next. I've ordered the table so that once you've connected to one industry in the list, your railroad will have access to all of the cargo needed for the next industry down.
While it's best to try and deliver to new industries whenever possible, sometimes (especially early on) you will simply run out of money for all the new railcars you need to haul the stuff. For the early game, my best suggestion is to run beams from the sawmill straight to the freight depot. Stake flats (which carry beams) are among the cheapest rolling stock, and each carload is worth $72, compared to $60 for a flatcar of logs. You only need 3 beams per car, so it's fast to load and unload. While cordwood is also easy to do, with each carload worth $80, each flat is much more expensive to buy, and each car carries 8 units of cordwood, making the loading time much longer. Plus, many more industries use stake flats than the cordwood flats, so you will be investing in the future of your railroad as you go.
Another way to make money in RRO is via Firewood Depots and Coaling Towers, which brings us to the next available construction tool,
Facilities are buildings you place down yourself to facilitate the management of your railway. At the top of the menu are the Sand House, the Firewood Depot, and the Coaling Tower. They're very self-explanatory: The Sand House contains sand to refill your locomotive's sander, the Firewood Depot is where you restock on firewood, and the Coaling Tower is where you restock on coal. The Sand House is, as far as I can tell, unimplemented as of 5/29/2023, but the others are very important. In RRO, you
need to produce the fuel that runs your railroad.
Firewood Depots are easy to stock, not least of all because they spawn in full of firewood, in case you run out in the middle of nowhere. To refill a Firewood Depot that has been exhausted, you simply unload any form of wooden cargo (logs, lumber, beams, or cordwood) onto the side of the platform that doesn't have firewood on it. When designing your yards, it's always smart to make space for a firewood depot, because the platforms are spaced far apart and most locomotives in RRO run on firewood.
Coaling towers do not spawn in stocked with coal, and coal is not available until about half of the map is connected by your railroad, so coal-fired locomotives will be a late-game commodity. Once you have access to them, though, they are restocked in much the same way as firewood depots.
Water towers are also important. Without water, your trains have no steam, so place these wherever they're convenient. They refill slowly on their own.
Engine sheds are purely cosmetic in this game, since the locomotives don't require servicing or shelter. They are, however, available in a variety of nice paint schemes, and a roundhouse is a great way to spruce up any boring-looking switching yards.
The last facility is the Telegraph Office, which is the most convenient structure in the game. Wherever on the map you place one, your map will be updated with a brown box with a T in it. Clicking his box allows you to teleport to any telegraph office from anywhere else in the game, saving you a lot of walking between industries and yards.
Locomotives (the shop), and Companies
The shop is where you use your hard-earned money to buy locomotives and rolling stock. You can check your funds in-game by pressing P. The "tier" of an item is the level your player needs to be in order to purchase it. Your level increases every time you deliver cargo to an industry. When other players join your game, they can join your company by pressing Tab and clicking "Join Company" next to your name. When they do this, any delivery they make will count as a delivery for you, not them, which increases your money and XP much faster than doing it all alone. Employment is forgotten when the player relogs.
Rerailing is finicky. Basically, you click "rerail," spam LMB on whatever you're trying to rerail until its name appears in the UI, and then walk around looking at track until it appears where you want it to. You can flip it around with LMB, and then drop it with RMB. Rerailing on switches currently seems to be a little broken.
This option will send you back to the spawn yard if you ever manage to get stuck. It was more useful before telegraph offices were added, and most of the gamebreaking ways to get stuck have been patched, but if you want to use it you simply click and hold until you respawn.
Now, with a line of track connecting your spawning yard with the logging camp, you're ready to finally fire up your Porter 0-4-0 and run some trains! In case you're new to operating a steam locomotive, here's a quick rundown of the controls:
First, open up the firebox and throw a few logs on the fire. Pick up logs with LMB, look at the firebox until the UI displays its temperature in the top left, and throw with RMB. You can throw logs back onto the pile if you picked up too many (you can hold up to 5 at once). Now you have to wait for the fire to heat up, which then makes the boiler heat up, and then you will finally see the dial on your pressure gauge increase. Once you've got pressure, you can move the locomotive.
The big lever above the firebox is the regulator, aka the throttle. It basically controls how fast your built-up steam enters the cylinder, or in other words, how much power you're sending to the piston, and by extension, the wheels.
The lever coming out of the floor is the reverser (or the Johnson bar), which controls at what point in the cylinder's stroke steam is allowed to enter the chamber. All the way forward means that steam comes in anytime it would push the wheels forward, and all the way back means that steam comes in anytime it would push the wheels backwards. In between, it controls whether the steam flow is constant, or if it comes in short bursts. Or, at least, that's how it works in real life. IRL you can achieve more efficient steam usage by setting the reverser bar near the middle and letting the regulator stay open; however, in RRO, as far as I can tell it simply multiplies the % the regulator is open and the % that the reverser is set and uses that number as the "go amount." So, for all intents and purposes, the reverser is just another regulator (in RRO).
The lever to the right of that is the brake. Betsy (i.e. the Porter 0-4-0) has a mechanical brake, meaning it applies braking force as long as you have it on. In some locomotives, though, the brakes are powered by a steam-powered compressor, which you need to activate yourself via a valve somewhere, or else your brakes will have no effect.
The whistle and the bell do as you expect. There is another handle which opens the cylinder cocks, which as of 5/29/2023 is purely cosmetic, as are the sanders. IRL, cylinder cocks are used to blow condensed water out of the cylinders, and sanders are used for extra traction in slippery conditions.
Finally, most locomotives have lamps that you can turn on and off with LMB, or by using the steam-powered generator, if it has one.
And that's pretty much it! Different locomotives have different features, and levers are often in slightly different places, but they all operate on the same general principles. Locomotives are also often specialized for a particular job. For example, engines like the Eureka are specialized for high speeds with low power, while engines with shorter wheel bases like the D&RGW Class 48 are specialized for sharp turns and yardwork, while the geared locomotives like shays and heislers are specialized for steep tracks in mountainous terrain. You can find a number of resources online to find statistics for each of the different RRO locomotives.
The 3 foot narrow-gauge railway in RRO uses what is called "Link and pin" coupling, which uses, unsurprisingly, links and pins. To couple two cars together, you need enough space to fit a link between them. Press LMB to insert a link in the coupler. Only one car should have a link
. Once the link is in place, push the cars together and use RMB to place a pin in both couplers. Et voila! Your train is now longer.
Tender locomotives have unique couplers. First of all, instead of a link, tenders are connected to the cab by a drawbar. Press LMB on the tender, then back up the locomotive and use RMB to hitch it to the drawbar with a pin. For locomotives with cowcatchers, the front is outfitted with a drawbar as well, which can be extended and retracted with LMB. This link is weaker than the usual link-and-pin, so only use this for short, slow trips or yardwork.
While straight-up modding RRO is currently very difficult, there do exist certain external tools to help provide you with a more enjoyable experience with a game that is, at times, excessively grindy. RROx
RROx, or Railroads Online Extended
, is by far the most useful RRO extension I've come across. It offers a real-time minimap (that maps your rail lines for you!), remote control of locomotives, cranes, and switches, unrestricted teleporting, cheats like free money, fast-sprint and flight, as well as optional access to all of these features for other RROx users that join your game. It even provides everything necessary to create a plugin of your own, if you're so inclined.
Railroad Studio railroad.studio
is a free online save file editor for RRO. With it you can replace trees, rename/repaint locomotives and rolling stock, delete track, cheat in money, etc. Currently the go-to save editor.
Just some extra technical bits that are worth knowing:
- A lot of the game's files are stored in your AppData/Local folder under the name arr, a name inherited from the devs' previous game, American Railroads.
- Your save files are stored in %localappdata%\arr\Saved\SaveGames.
- A number of config settings are stored in plaintext .ini files in arSaved/Config/Windows, where you can edit settings like the maximum view distance beyond what is usually allowed. The maximum setting typically allowed is 3, but I've increased this to 10 without any notable performance drop. Nevertheless, edit settings beyond supported values at your own risk. The game needs to be restarted for settings changed in this way to take effect.
- All controls can be rebound in the controls menu.
- You can change your POV with V, and you can lean left and right with R and T.
- If you prefer to drive with the GUI instead of in first person, you may have an easier time finding the button prompt by standing in front of the locomotive rather than inside it.
- Placing a switch, then a 45° on the turnout, and finally another switch so that the straight edge is parallel with your first switch, creates two lanes that are far enough apart to fit the switch's lever on the inside.
- If you back far enough away, track and ballast hitboxes will despawn and let you place things inside of them.
- There is a large, flat plateau northeast of the smelter that is a convenient place for a yard connecting the smelter, iron mine, and coal mine.
- There is a lot of space for a yard just over the hill west of the freight depot.
- The un-deletable track southeast of the spawning track is for the shop.
- The game keeps a list of every tree you've cut down and uses this to load the map, which (allegedly) makes the game take longer to load if you cut more trees than you need to. Use a save file editor like railroad.studio to replace missing trees.
- The walkway on Bridges II is always on your left as you build it.
- You can snap track to turntables if you rotate it to where you want the connection to be.
- Firewood depots only replenish the piles if every pile is missing at least 5 logs.
- If you're strapped for cash, loading a car with logs and then immediately unloading that car to a firewood depot on the other side is fast, easy money. This is pretty cheaty though, so you might as well save yourself some time and just use a save file editor.
- A switch's turnout is about 10 degrees.
- Locomotives don't respond to changes in the controls until a 1-second timer counts down. The timer resets every time you make a change, but letting go (releasing left-click) applies the change immediately.
That's pretty much everything I've got. I hope that this guide has been of use to you! If I forgot something, got something wrong, or you have an idea for how to improve this guide, feel free to leave it as a comment below. Happy railroading!

2023.05.31 14:53 nightman66 Ladder or Non-Ladder??
I know that D4 is on its way in less then 2 days now. That's great, but I'm waiting a little bit before I decide to spend 70 dollars and potentially more on a battlepass. In the meantime I've been getting back into Diablo in general. Do most people who are sticking around for D2R play ladder or non ladder? Is offline more worth my time?

2023.05.31 14:11 SlipAwkward4480 I fucked up
Took loans that I would normally easily be able to pay from my remote work in Turkey, in which earning salary in dollars (7400$) in my case was more than enough. Diagnosed with hodgkins lymphoma, took 6 cycyles of abvd and radioteraphy, in addition to my OCD, I have been taking prozac starting from 20mg up to 80 after 6 months. I was put out of work, and can not pat wast amounts of debt that I would be normally able to pay within a month with my salary. And those who I wad debted to are the friends that really trusted me, and an other one who is a general manager and owner of a factory who's quite serious about these stuff.
It took me more than a year to find a remote software engineering job through communities and I can't find a job to compansate for the debts currently.
Constantly have panic attacks and got prescrived benzodiazepines, even alcohol on top of that and still, it's way too overwhelming.
Can't see any other way than putting an iron in my mouth and pull the trigger, never thought I would even consider something like this. Doing that seems go be the only eay to reach peace

As investing trends come in and out of fashion, it can be difficult to navigate what is real and will power the future, and what is hype and will eventually fade. Trading companies that are in the thick of the trends can also be tricky, especially when trying to recognize value ahead of the broader market and appraising how the given technology will play out. Others that are looking for a quick buck might want to jump on the train in any event, even if it's for a quick ride, though the short-term strategy can quickly leave a bag holder with a screen full of red at the end of a big run-up on a stock price.
Enter Nvidia: The company, a leader in artificial intelligence hardware and software, saw its shares soar 24.6% to $380 in AH trading on Wednesday, bringing its YTD gain to over 160%. The latest movement came after the firm posted Q1 results that topped expectations and blew away forecasts for the upcoming period. "Demand [related to generative AI and large language models] has extended our data center visibility out a few quarters and we have procured substantially higher supply for the second half of the year," Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) executives said on an earnings call. "The easiest way to think about that is over the next four or five, 10 years, most of that trillion dollars, and compensating adjusting for all the growth in data center still, it will be largely generative AI."
In fact, Nvidia is indicated to open today with a market-cap gain of more than $185B, making it worth more than Meta (META) or Tesla (TSLA), and it might even turn into the biggest single-day record (Apple (AAPL) rose by $191B in November 2022). Peers are riding the sentiment higher, such as rival chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) +8.5%, AI software maker C3.ai (NYSE:AI) +9.3% and Palantir (NYSE:PLTR) +7.7%. Bigger players like Microsoft (MSFT) and Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL), which are incorporating generative AI into their platforms, rose as well, while the AI rally sent Nasdaq futures up nearly 2% overnight.
But... the jury is still out on artificial intelligence. There's no doubt that companies are on the brink of something big, and that it will change many industries and how we do things, but it's important to separate hype from reality when talking about any emerging technology. Remember the Internet of Things? Web 3.0? The metaverse? DeFi, blockchain, and NFTs? Many shares related to companies operating in these spaces have seen their prices dwindle from the record highs seen when the news cycle was first played up. Contrast that to smartphones, streaming, e-commerce and the cloud, which have had much more lasting impacts on business investment, the labor market and broader economy.
From the comments section: "[NVDA's] $6B rev and $2B in researching and development. That's how to build the future. Incredible stock," writes SA premium user ErikInvest, while chris hafferty adds "AI is as significant as the commercialization of electricity!" Raph86 counters that "from the COVID everything bubble right to the AI bubble... Market demands more of the sweet stuff!" in SA article, Nvidia Fiscal Q1 2024 Earnings: Solid Beat, But Hedge Your Bets. "The valuation does NOT have to be justified," replies Natturner1966. "It's the stock market, not a college finance class." (22 comments)
On negative watch
The United States is in danger of losing Fitch's top sovereign debt status due to "increased political partisanship that is hindering reaching a resolution to raise or suspend the debt limit." The "AAA" long-term foreign currency issuer default rating was placed on Rating Watch Negative, though Fitch still expects a resolution before the so-called "X-date," which can impact the U.S. Dollar Index (DXY). Recall that in 2011, the U.S. lost its top rating at S&P, as the government approached default in a similar standoff. S&P has not restored the country to its highest rating, but the last of the Big Three credit rating agencies, Moody's, still has its highest "Aaa" ranking on the U.S. (42 comments)
Here comes the sun
Solar is emerging as an energy superpower with this year's global investment in the sector ($380B) set to surpass spending on oil production ($370B) for the first time. That's according to Fatih Birol, executive director of the International Energy Agency, who said the development "will soon start to see a very different energy system emerging and we can keep the 1.5C goal alive." The change is a result of strong subsidies and tax credits like the Inflation Reduction Act, as well as policy alignment among nations towards climate and energy security, and better economics of alternative power sources. "Clean energy is moving fast, faster than many people realize," Birol added. "For every dollar invested in fossil fuels, about $1.7 are now going into clean energy. Five years ago, this ratio was 1:1." (9 comments)
Pause in June?
Almost all Federal Reserve officials at the FOMC's May 2-3 meeting said downside risks to growth and upside risks to unemployment had increased due to banking stresses, according to the minutes published from the gathering. Participants "generally expressed uncertainty about how much more policy tightening may be appropriate," while some noted that additional "policy firming would likely be warranted at future meetings." That means the bank is still divided on whether to continue raising interest rates, especially if progress in bringing down inflation to the Fed's 2% target remains "unacceptably slow." The policymaking committee in May increased its key rate by 25 bps to a range of 5.00%-5.25%, representing its 10th straight rate hike, while odds rose of the Fed pausing in June following the release of the minutes.

2023.05.31 13:59 ObserverVR Do you ever use your Quest in public? What were the reactions of the people around you when playing VR?
I believe to drive mass adoption of VR it's beneficial to bring your Quest outside every now and then (on cloudy days, don't ruin your lenses folks) to make people curious of what this strange figure wearing an oversized headset is doing right now and help them realize playing VR is actually tons of fun. Most people don't read tech news and have no idea how VAMR is about to revolutionize how we interact with the world. When they think of VR, they still think of Google Cardboard or Mobile VR in general.
So, what reactions you came across when playing VR? Were people curious, did anyone asked if they could try VR out for themselves or is someone with a Quest so ordinary in your area that no one hardly notices?

2023.05.31 13:49 D4RK1773R4019 My Experience on IW Zombies
Hello everyone! A few weeks ago (or month, idk) IW was on sale and I asked here if it was worth it just for Zombies. Ended buying the game and gave it a second chance (Had it on release on PS4 but hardly played it and instead focused on getting max prestige on BO3) and man what a game! It's been almost 70 hours and just got Director's Cut unlocked. As someone who loves movies this game was perfect. So I wanted to share with everyone my thoughts on some maps, how many attempts it took me to finish the Easter egg and a little ranking of maps.
Zombies in Space land:
- My first couple of times playing this map were terrible, I died several times on round 6 or 7 because I wasn't used to how this game works.
- Grinded just enough for me to unlock the Kendall and got it to level 4. After that I immediately searched for guides on how to obtain the wonder weapons and how the coins worked.
- When attempting the Eatser Egg for the first couple of times I developed some sort of route: Get 3k points, open the arcade, get enough tickets for golden teeth, arcane core and freezing grenades, the next round I would train a couple of zombies and use the grenades on the yeti near Polar and use Scoped Dollars with the M1 Garand. This helped me open up most of the map in early rounds.
- Now despite all that I still managed to get to Bossfight by round 20 or more. So I asked here for tips or strats on this map and I got some really good help, especially from someone named "blacksideknight3" (Dont know if I can tag someone here). With this person's help I managed to get SETI-COMS by round 7 o 6 depending on when I got a clown round and got to bossfight by round 11 - 15.
- Eventually after many attempts (almost 17) managed to finish this Easter egg on solo. I'm saying almost because my game glitched out with the Super Minute Man Card and couldn't upgrade my Shredder. Thankfully I had every piece of the Head Cutter and with that I destroyed the UFO.
Rave in the Redwoods:
- A totally different vibe compared to Spaceland and got lost a lot on this map. Definitely the least amount of playtime because it took me 2 playthroughs to finish this map.
- Had to watch a guide on how to kill the slasher between my fist and second attempts since he 1 shot me on my first time playing the map.
- Definitely the easiest bonus round of the game.
- When trying to get every crossbow I started doing some Easter egg steps and eventually finished the Quest. It was an accident. (Have to thank those Steam Guides, they were so useful). The Easter egg attempt took me around 2 hours and 40 minuted because I didn't knew the layout of the map.
- At first I was scared of this map because of some people saying that the Easter egg was tedious and annoying. But found out this was the second easiest Quest in the game for me.
- Really enjoyed this map as a whole, the martial arts, easy layout, a new and better version of Deadshot and the Easter egg was fun. The only bad part was the disco ball step but with the Card that slows zombies and knowing how the step actually worked I managed to complete it easily.
- This Easter egg reminded me to some of WW2 Quests and I'm a huge WW2 zombies fan so this map was perfect for me.
- Ninjas are the most annoying special enemy in this game.
- For my attempts on the Easter egg I used the Skull Hacker card because of how look it takes to get to Boss fight. Even with this I fought the Rat King on round 21 and died multiple times as well as running out of ammo mid damage phase. Thankfully Pam can revive you and since I had all perks due to to the GnS reward I received every time with all my perks. Ended killing the Rat King with the fire from Trail Blazers. This Easter egg took me around 6 or 7 attempts.
Attack of the Radioactive Thing:
- Loved the atmosphere and the music here.
- This map probably has the most forgettable wonder weapon in the game since it isn't needed for the Easter egg.
- Again needed to watch a guide on how to kill the big Crog.
- Since I farmed keys on Shaolin I had a couple of legendary weapon variants at my disposal, like Mauler Mammoth, Type 2 Butcher, RPR Evo Ripper and the UDM Stalker. I used the last one for the majority of the Easter egg after finding out online that it is good against Crogs.
- I almost had a stroke trying to understand the chemistry step. I swear I almost went crazy until I found a guide on Steam with 0 stars that explained perfectly that step.
- This map took me around 4 to 5 attempts and in my god run I finished everything by round 8 but due to bad luck on the Mystery Wheel went to boss fight on round 15. Also I was planning on doing the laser skip on the boss fight but failed and had to do the course and surprisingly made it on my first try.
Beast from Beyond:
- I hate this map.
- Really easy Easter egg since it has a lot of glitches but it has the hardest boss fight (Without counting Mephistopheles).
- For my first tried on the Easter egg I went with Fate Cards only but later went with Cards like Get Packed (Wall power), Coupon Clippers (1 Free purchase), Evade, Ego trip (Increased Headshot Damage) for the blue mammoths and Scoped Dollars. This kit helped me finish everything before boss fight by round 7.
- After failing many many times and running out of some of those cards I switched to a strat on a guide I found on YouTube that consisted on the following cards: Skull Hacker, On the Money (Players are rewarded for their accuracy), Head Reloader (Headhots reload your mag), Ego trip and Ammo Crate. With the On the Money card you can do an unlimited money glitch and could spend multiple times on the box to get Kendalls and Mauler and have them both double packed for the boss fight on round 7.
- Following that guide made the boss fight super easy and even finished it on my fist attempt. However after unlocking Director's Cut and killing a zombie with a Bio Spike, my game crashed ereasing everything I did on that attempt.
- Did the same thing but this time had bad RNG on the Wheel and got the Kendall after burning through 13 different wheels. However this meant I had to go to boss fight by round 8 and finished it on my fist try again. Took me around 9 to 14 attempts to finish this map.
- This is the guide I used: https://youtube.com/watch?v=hNd8z4lQtlQ&feature=share9
- Rave in the Redwoods
- Shaolin Shuffle
- Zombies in Spaceland
- Attack of the Radioactive Thing
- Beast from Beyond
- Shaolin Shuffle
- Zombies in Spaceland
- Attack of the Radioactive Thing
- Rave on the Redwoods
- Beast from Beyond
Sorry for the long read. I did every Easter egg on solo. Still need to complete every Quest again but on Director's Cut and fight Mephistopheles. This zombies game has definitely taken the spot of BO3 in my top 3 zombie games:
1) BO4 2) IWZ 3) WW2
Thanks to everyone who read this!

2023.05.31 13:46 learn_er Journey 1: Opportunities
Hi everyone, I thought I would start off a thread to share my journey with investing, and also get some discussion going on where other people are also seeing opportunities. I am by no means qualified, so do not consider anything here to be financial advice. Shout out to u/Bluewolf1983
who inspired me to make this.
I have been investing on and off for about 5 years now, and using options for 3 years. I have always taken a more laissez faire approach to stock-picking. I have done well at times, and not so well at other times. In this journey, I am going to attempt to take a more systematic and thought out approach to portfolio construction.
My portfolio size is not huge, but I am hoping discussion of my thought process will encourage others to critique / add their own thinking about opportunities that they are seeing. I think this is beneficial for everyone. Rules I have set myself:
- Try to only deal with stocks / bonds with liquid options (for income / risk management)
- While I can make short term plays, I am going to start off evaluating the large, concentrated ideas on a 1-3 year horizon.
- Aiming for about 10% bond exposure.
- Aiming for about 60-80% general market exposure (beta) - have some flexibility in here for the type of market (e.g. HSI, SPY, QQQ etc).
- 10%-30% individual / industry stock picking.
- I am starting out this portfolio all fresh. Current allocation is 100% in short term treasury bonds (SHV). I will start allocating capital based on the opportunities that materialise.
- From a macro perspective, market implied odds of a Fed rate hike have really increased over the past month. This has led to a rebound in the dollar.
- In case there is a softer CPI / PPE print, I am looking at selling GDX puts, getting some exposure to gold. I might also consider a position in the Emerging Markets ETF (EEM) which would benefit from a weaker dollar.
- Longer term, I am bullish on copper. There are a lot of reasons for this which I might go in to in a future. Over the long term, I would like to opportunistically build a position in copper miners to get exposure to this. My current plan is to either get exposure via Freeport Mcmoran (FCX) or the copper miners etf (COPX).
- There is currently a blood-bath going on Chinese equities - they are down over 20% since their peak in Jan 27. For example, FXI is trading at a PE of 10. Given my more long term investing horizon, I wouldn't mind getting some exposure to Chinese equities. FXI has an IV of around 30%, so I plan on selling at the money puts to get some income, but also slowly build exposure.
This outlines my current thinking. My moves will be dictated by what opportunities materialise. I look forward to any comments / criticism.

2023.05.31 13:05 Maleficent-Rain2431 Labeling a country as super cheap publically or in front of locals is beyond rude and ignorant.
Edit: Based on the comments no one wants to understand, what the issue is here, however I have explained the difference is RELATIVE worth of money in this country, which means, cost of living is almost the same, as in Western Europe, however the wage is 1/3rd, or in some cases even 1/7th of the wages in the West. Please read the details below, before you consider commenting here. Thank you.
I live in an Eastern European country, which is one of the fave spots of western tourists. Living here a day to day life is a struggle for most of the people (not all of them of course, but living standards, salaries are really low here generally), however the prices for groceries and other stuff are almost the same as in Western Europe. Almost. This means, that for French, English, or especially Scandinavian visitors these prices are cheap. However they earn 5x-, sometimes 10x the money that we do here, but prices here are not even half as low, rather like 30% lower. (although inflation changed this a lot, now a lot of things, especially groceries are cheaper in the West, so we are stuck with the same prices and earning 1/5th of their salaries.)
So I met a lot of tourists and foreigners, who came here and proudly talked about this country being “super-cheap” and affordable in front of locals, or directly to locals, who struggle from circa 700 EUmonth, and the tourist stuff, or just normal European programs, like restaurants, thermal baths, etc. Are super expensive for them.
Hence I always feel a rage when some western tourists label the country as a very cheap option, however I have a kinda good job which doesn’t pay that bad compared to other people’s income here. I feel, like this is as ignorant, as me going to some less developed or lucky country in Asia or Africa, where locals just dream about my priviliged European life (yes, it’s still priviliged compared to the rest of the world) and loudly telling people living from 5 dollars a week that living is SO CHEAP there. Like I don’t do that, because I am aware of the privilige I am living in, and don’t want ro rub it into other’s faces. Western Europeans should be this considerate when visiting Eastern Europe as well, because this is getting really tiring and degrading, especially at the time of this recession.

2023.05.31 12:15 Educational_Way_7258 Help pay for semester tuition
Hi, I was wondering if anyone on here could help a student in need who has no way of paying off a student loan of $2,000. Her school makes her pay every semester and she doesn’t know why, she thought going in that it could be payed after graduation. She has no way of paying it off, her mother is a single mom with two little girls; and doesn’t have that kind of money on hand. And her school told her if she doesn’t pay they’ll go to the general attorney collection enforcement, she tried speaking to them no one listens. They gave her a 10 day notice, she doesn’t even have the luxury of trying to pay it off with finding job, because there’s no time. Please send whatever you can, even if it’s just dollar, anything will help. Thank you.
Here’s the link to the go fund me. https://gofund.me/a363e3d2

2023.05.31 11:59 Crimson_Camel What "Grinds your Gears" as a CSA (Part 2: about 6 months later)
We're doing a sequel!
so, about half a year ago, I made a post asking y'all what makes your blood pressure rise the most working as the underpaid, underappreciated underling of a multi million dollar company. There were some GREAT answers and helped me understand where I worked more. Now I have that little gold pin and a pat on the back for stickling it out for over a year.
But... things have changed since. The system went down nation wide TWICE!!! I have made my place as "one of the best at customer service" and great on a register! The world changed. Products and drugs have come and go. We've lived, laughed, maybe even loved (despite it being against policy, but I don't judge). and now... I'M ASKING Y'ALL AGAIN
What is the thing that grinds your gears as a CSA. Anything from common customer grievances to photo department malfunctions to stock miscommunication. What makes you think "Why do I still work here" all the way to pay day. I'll go first.
Months ago, my answer was about the new fancy pin pads that gave old people a headache and our systems a workout. If you asked me today, I'd say... The photo department. In general. Why does a pharmacy/convenience store need a FedEx and a photo department? 9 times outa 10 It's either down or printing the wrong photos. If you remember G from my other posts, she was banned from photo for mixing photo orders. Yes, she is also banned from floor and stock room activities. No, she does not listen, and sneak away to the bathroom for 20 minutes at a time every hour or less. But I digress. There are dozens of better choices. IM STILL NOT TRAINED. NO, I DONT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A WOOD AND NORMAL FRAME. NO, I DON'T KNOW WHY IT TAKES 3 HOURS TO PROCESS YOUR 80,000 PHOTOS OF YOUR TODDLER STANDING IN A FIELD. "Can I check it to make sure it's good" why tf would I care. It has YOUR name. IM trying to vacuum the rug with our broken vacuum that almost set the outlet on fire once and YOUR postponing tha-OPPS the pharmacy is closed now and we cant borrow their vacuum. JUST PRINT THEM AT HOME OR AT ANY OTHER PLACE! STAPLES EXIST!
Anyways, I do plan on working here for a while still. My co-workers are fun and at least my store is in an area full of retired boomers and people with common sense. But who knows what the future holds?
I know this one is longer and wordier, but I've been excited to make this one.

2023.05.31 11:47 JarethOfHouseGoblin Because MAGA and evangelical Christianity are inextricably linked, cruelty is the defining feature of evangelical Christianity.
I grew up in an evangelical environment, and in the 90's and 2000's, they actually did talk about being nice to people. Generally speaking, that is.
Then in 2008, Barack Obama got elected and the people in my church lost their fucking minds. Right wing evangelicals all over lost their fucking minds. Even more so when he got reelected in 2012.
So in 2015 when Trump came down the golden escalator and began his first steps towards destroying this country, evangelicals started to coalesce around him. This was an inevitable act because their anger and ferocity grew during the Obama years. They've had authoritarian, anti-democratic tendencies for years but the fervor accelerated during Trump's rise and during his time in office. Culminating in the January 6th Capitol Riots when his cult attempted to subvert our democracy by overturning the results of the election.
But what came into focus during the Trump years and how evangelicals thought "this is fine" is that cruelty had become the defining feature of their worldview. They see enemies everywhere and they feel the need to punish their enemies. It seems their list of enemies grows everyday.
The politics of cruelty isn't just Trump. It's the entire Republican party who legislate based on harming people. These days, it's trans people. Ron DeSantis, who is a dollar store brand Trump, legislates by cruelty. Which led him to being stupid enough to take on one of the biggest corporations in the world and Florida's biggest employer. Biting the hand that feeds you. Let's see how that works out for you, bro.
I've actually been criticized by evangelicals for being "weak" and "soft-hearted". And, you know what? I'd rather be empathetic than a cruel piece of shit like fundigelicals.
