  1. Had to get a new phone number due to many frustrating circumstances that caused me to lose access to the old one, but then I got the old one back, so now I have two phone numbers like some kind of drug dealer. My new number belonged to some old lady that gave her number out to literally everyone and everything so the new number’s gotta go. I’ve been getting spam calls and texts nonstop all day.

    • @zeldatra I got landline phone numbers with my Internet contract and once in a while I receive calls from random people thinking it belongs to a garage shop. It happens only a couple times a year.

  2. I bought a tool for splicing 3d printer filament. It's difficult as hell. I bought it so I can use up all those "too much to throw away but too short to print anything usable" spools. The main problem is that I end up having a splice that is way too thick to fit through the PTFE tube that will definitely end up as a print failure. At this point I think it is a operator failure than a failure of the tool. I give it more tries until I throw it into the corner.

    • @adiwan Yeah, I bet there's a "touch" to it that'll take a bit to find

    • @scribus I think too. Also I have the suspicion that the tool I bought is kind of flawed in both handling and execution https://i.imgur.com/rWLHU0z.jpeg It is made such that you put one end into the area with the Teflon sleeve and the other end to the metal hole. Both ends are then heated by a flame (candle, lighter) for a couple seconds and then pulled into the Teflon area and there the ends are pushed together while the plastic is hot. After it has cooled down the screws are loosened and the tool can be removed. The hole in the Teflon area is about 2mm in diameter while the plastic filament is 1.75mm. Ideally the hole should be the same or close in size. Either way pushing the filament into the hole while it's melted is hard as the filament itself tends to naturally curl because it has been wound up on a spool before and hand-straightening is not really easy or effective enough. I need to shave off the extra bulge back to 1.75mm in order to prevent clogs. Wasn't expensive tough.

  3. “Kiryu has contracted schizophrenia from repeated exposure to Kasuga” is not a tutorial I thought I would read in this game

    • @adiwan I dunno, maybe I’m just misremembering Nanba’s voice because I’m currently used to hearing him as Yagami’s, but Greg Chun constantly sounds like he’s about to lose his voice in Infinite Wealth. That and his audio mixing is like noticeably worse than everyone else’s, so he might actually just have done everything from home with no voice direction and the audio engineer didn’t fix anything. Mega jarring because the rest of the English voice dub is shockingly good.

    • @zeldatra I'm playing with the Japanese audio. I don't know how good the English voice cast is but I'm very much used to listening to the Japanese voices. On the other hand the English of some characters is the epitome of bad. I cringe extremely hard hearing Bryce speaking English. If I were the director I'd rather have a voice-alike for the English. Maybe it was out of budget or time but it undermines his character in my opinion.

    • @adiwan it’s mad unfortunate in some cases, they face scanned Daniel Dae Kim for the triad boss but when he talks it’s not Daniel Dae Kim’s voice and Daniel Dae Kim is Ebina instead???

  4. Did Ichiban and Kiryu have an off-screen adventure together between Ryu 7 and Infinite Wealth or something? Ichiban keeps saying papaya like “everything Kiryu did for me” but to my knowledge all Kiryu did was show up, beat Ichiban up, exposit at him, then leave without even telling him his name.

    about 17 days ago from web
    • @zeldatra You are right. It was really odd that they were both very good buddies from his perspective. I would guess that Ichiban got his name from Songhee or Joon-gi (the Geomijul in general) and he probably meant with "everything Kiryu did for me" was just the little bit of Kiryu helping his cause in 7.

  5. A group of dudes stole $2000 in merchandise in a single night at my store, and my dumbass hothead of a cart pusher threw hands. They came in again last night and brought mace. Now I kind of wanna wear goggles tonight in case they come in again but at this rate if they discover I’m immune to mace they’ll bring a gun tomorrow.

It took me half an hour getting through all my papers, optimize some little things, berating me not having enough expenses as I didn't reach a threshold for a bigger tax payback, and getting it ready to send to the tax office.

  9. In chapter 2, Kasuga is being arrested at gunpoint by American police who have no idea what he’s saying and vice versa, then later on he’s communicating with a different police officer perfectly fine with no language barrier.

    • @zeldatra I'm in chapter 5. Language is very loosey-goosey handled beyond in every aspect of the game. At this point I just accept that they have some kind of universal translator that occasionally malfunctions. There is also the possibility that Kiryu translates everything but for he sake of drama and brevity it is not shown. In Yakuza 3 those English books from the scam must have some effect.

    • @adiwan And we don't even speak the name "Digimon" in this house

      about a month ago in context
    • @scribus At this point it has become a footnote in history and lost any kind of cultural significance beyond furry porn. There were a few films in the cinema but they were purely driven by nostalgia. I haven't seen any child wearing any kind of Digimon T-shirt or alike in a very very very long while. Also the name only pops up in conjunction with: "Do you remember Digimon?". Digimon can be considered functionally dead from my point of view. My interest in Digimon died somewhere in the first third of the Digimon Tamers TV Series and it was not big before.

  14. So. I was in a very bad car crash a a few months ago. Hit from two sides. Highway speed. Now insurance and law are sniffing at me with hunger no doubt, and medical is listing me with a hundred and one reasons why I can't be a functional adult, but my lack of injuries and lack of symptoms are making it worse, since I can't safely get any kind of long term income cause im not injured but the medical file bars me from working or driving. My only hope is loopholes in laws and maybe some good graces of those that dont care to sign off on me for the odd thing. But I bananaed off a higher power.

    • @adiwan Thank you. I never cared about life direction. But I knew how to handle my life. Now I was scared for a long time since I had rights and independence medically stripped from me on doctors orders. My future feels dead. My career probably is too. There is a slow path that might get my some rights back. But is that enough to be free? Idk. And easily undone if a doctor comes up with a new condition to give me. My only breaking point is just ignoring the medical and thus law to rebuild my life. Worst case I will lose what I already lost. Freedom.

  15. Tying braces is trickier than anticipated. I worked up to a technique that is fine, especially handling the extra piece of string. Had it known that it would be such a hassle I'd take the ones with belts and buckles.

    about a month ago from web
    • @adiwan I found some one-handed shoe tying methods that might help, think it was actually on some disability-related site. I use one where you tie one end of the string to the uppermost eyehole so you just pull to tighten and kind of finagle it around at the wrist into a knot

  16. I bought myself very cheap and simple black leather bracers (~15€), the type that tie only with a string. I intent to wear them next time the roads are slippery in order to prevent scratches on my arm, as my jacket didn't do anything to prevent that. These bracers slide constantly up and down as it is really difficult to put tension on the string and it is easy to overdo it for a comfortable and tight fit.

    about a month ago from web
    • @adiwan Research I should have done earlier say that is normal that they slide and don't fit right away. Either they have to be worn long enough that they mold to the arm shape and create more friction area, or some cloth or else is worn under the bracers, or the bracers are tied/sewn to the worn shirt.

      about a month ago in context
    • @adiwan I got a pair of leather bracers for LARP, they definitely have seemed to fit better over time. I usually have the sleeves of my puffy shirt tucked into them, so that probably helps, too, but I also mostly only do it that way because the inner side of the eyehole brass thingies that you run the lace through are irritating directly on my arm

    • @scribus As a 100 % T-shirt wearer I feel that what you mean. Right now it's the rough side of the leather that feels a little scratchy as well as the stitching.

  18. Gonna assemble myself a first-aid box. I have the feeling that all the ready-to-go purchasable ones are lacking in material and actually useful bandages. Also the ones with any number of pieces in the title are even more scummy as they count every single safety pin and other useless small piece. I want middle to big band-aids. Furthermore I don't need a hard plastic case or yet another nylon zip bag. For my car I need one of those ready-to-go ones that are mandated but that is a different thing.

  21. For a birthday gift for a friend, and a small pokemaniac, I crafted a Mew stone carving (from the first Pokemon movie) out of polymer clay. I used Adobe Illustrator to trace a screenshot and 3D-printed a cookie cutter and stamped it into the polymer clay and added additional stone texture with a ball of aluminium foil. After baking it at 130°C (266°F) for 40 minutes I used the crappiest acrylic paint I own. It did the job but the paint is darkening so much when dry that they turn almost black. With a liberal amount of white and other brighter paint (yellow, orange, red) I got to the end eventually. https://i.imgur.com/D7Nsjy5.jpg

I just ordered a pack of blank ID cards. i want to use them as mini dry erase whiteboards for notes inspired by https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5772876 However I want to put magnets on the back so I can place and reorganize these notes on my whiteboard. I could write directly on the whiteboard but I'm quickly annoyed on how any bigger change needs to redrawn and thus rarely used. This is an effort to get more organized.

  26. AI image generation is dangerously addicting. It's like a loot box where one hope to get a good image or the perfect image. I've spent too much time yesterday generating portrait images for preparing to my D&D adventure. Also Bing's Dall-E has a content filter that makes it a little bit more tricky to make grotesque images. For example I wanted to create a fleshy and bloody amalgam of unicorn body parts that assemble into one giant and colossal unicorn. The background is that the heroes have defeated the wizard that used unicorns and their blood to fuse animals together. However the remnants of that magic and unicorn blood and the disposed bodies were tossed into the sewers and spread through the rivers. Now they have to "clean up" the whole mess and be some kind of Ghostbusters but with bloody unicorn blobs with veiny tendrils instead of ghosts.

  28. Also Unreal Engine 4 irks me a lot, especially loading scenes. There is so much texture loading delay that I'm not used to with the Dragon Engine. Also animations on load behave weirdly: A sitting person stands for a frame and snaps into a sitting position with physics-driven secondary animation wiggling wildly. In rarer occasions distant scenery also flash white.

    • @adiwan It seems to actually be the Yakuza 5/0/Kiwami engine with an Unreal Engine wrapper over top which i think is part of why the game is so jank. Not sure what the game played like in Japan originally, but I imagine it wasn't very different.

      about 2 months ago in context
    • @zeldatra Makes sense that it is based on 5, as I found out that quite a few characters were in the original Japanese version. In the Unreal Engine remaster they were replaced by from 7. It's strange but I get it that Zhao is more popular than Baba.

  30. Hot baths (above body temperature) feel good when sitting inside the bathtub but feel awful when getting out of the tub. My whole circulation system of my body is then out of whack and I feel sickly numb and real sweaty. I get it that it's a very fever-like reaction but damn it is not on my mind when sitting relaxed in the tub.
