(For some context to understand the below: PE beachfront is just a single lane road which eventually splits into two and then three lanes when leaving Summerstrand. Most of the main road (i.e. outside the Boardwalk and all the way to the University) is a single lane. This lane can suffer congestion as it caters to a lot of traffic as it leads out of a big urban area, workplaces and the Nelson Mandela Bay University, or whatever they choose to call it this year. For the sake of brevity, there is also a back road at the back of the urban area.)

PE beachfront used to have taxis jumping traffic lights and blocking off lanes of traffic on the aforementioned road. This happened every morning, every day.

People would only ever take the right lane where it went from a single lane to a double as they had become so accustomed to the taxis stopping whenever they pleased on the left lane.

It led to a lot of accidents. To make it worse, you'd have more than one taxi block the left lane, and then when it came to departing, they would race off into the right lane as to beat the competition they were parked behind. This left lane was always covered in shattered brakelight and headlight glass as an accident would occur almost daily.

Cops in the vicinity, even behind or next to a taxi, would just simply ignore it.

After Trollip, it all stopped! We all saw cops pulling over the taxis whenever they jumped the traffic lights or blocked the lane like they used to. It trended over WhatsApp since it was such a shock to see something actually happen. There were now these undercover cops all over the beachfront who were actually doing their job. And it wasn't taxi targeting; they did random checks, pulled over suspicious vehicles and vehicles which clearly didn't pass roadworthy

They recently just extended the curb to allow taxis to be able to stop where they used to block the left lane; there are people who need their services after all.

We even got to see actual street cleaning motor vehicles regularly. I've lived here a lot of years and never once seen such a vehicle here until Trollip was appointed.

Our traffic department was a catastrophic mess and, I don't know how, it became efficient after Trollip.

There are still problems here, such as the Municipality conning residents, leaving them with no option to appeal their fraudulent readings, as well as the blue collar street cleaners always found to be sleeping in the parks. However, we had progress and I'm sure the above would had been solved too.

It was nice seeing the city progress where previously it felt like it was getting worse and worse. Unfortunately, it seems like this will come to an end as the current mayor was not chosen through a process of merit and capabilities, but instead part of political strategy and warfare.

Knowing that we will no longer have someone looking out for the best interests of the city is depressing as it is something this city needed a long time ago.

As a side note, I'm actually supportive of PE directing a large flow of income towards the townships. They have been forgotten for far too long and we still have the same shacks in Walmer. I don't know what Trollip was doing about this, since there are only a few RDP houses, but I know it was definately not enough. The townships should have, and could have, been rectified a long time ago. Hopefully the new mayor will put our money where his mouth is and sort the township mess out; it is not right people still have to live like that.

As a matter of curiosity, how is this going to apply to real world purchases, such as the following:

  1. Lucky packets;
  2. Trading cards that come in covered and sealed packaging e.g. Magic the Gathering, old X-Men cards etc.
  3. Toy dispensing machines that randomly dispense a toy, some more valuable than others;
  4. Random toy containers such as Kinderjoy Eggs and LOL Dolls (sp.) where some toys are more valuable than others;
  5. Arcade 'Claw' and coin drop machines.

I'm not listing the above in a tongue-in-cheek fashion. I'm genuinely curious if the Lootbox rulings in countries will start to impact real world objects such as those listed above. The only difference in my eyes in a case such as Trading Cards is that Loot boxes are digital and trading cards are physical. If anything, there's more of a gamebreaking change if you don't pull a card you need from a physical pack as opposed to a Lootbox.

I can imagine a company, wanting to cull it's competition, might want to use legislation to do so and use the Lootbox rulings as an argument and/or precadent.

FWIW, I'm against Loot boxes in its current form as it's just abusing the customer. I was fine with the way Counter Strike handled it since it was just a skin and it was really the only game doing it, but now it's become a business model for majority of games which I'm strongly against. If World of Warcraft was released today, you would be getting your loot out of Loot boxes instead of your own effort in playing, which is where I have huge issues with the current systems being used.

I believe you can turn this on under the options.

Also, if you push the ~ key, it will highlight the characters. It's a toggle button. I believe the options in game will let you change this to a circle.

I'm all for it being legal, but in a society which knows limits. Respect for the rules of the road is not really going well, throw some joints into the mix....

Claims concern for rules of the road but doesn't advocate for the criminalization of alcohol, one the world's leading direct and indirect killers and the biggest issue in regards to "respect for the rules of the road".

There's a word for this: bigotry

Any idea where to start with that?

You have to be a medical practitioner to apply. Even then, with all of the boxes checked, they are not giving out permits.

Word is that the MSA was waiting for this ruling, but as of now (before the ruling), there's no chance of getting a licence.

It has been suggested that you start with applying to grow hemp and growing it, then applying to grow marijuana when it/if-it stops applying to medical practitioners only. This might give your case more credibility.

Dish titles need to be the same font size and smaller with no italics. The description should be shades lighter than the titles but this might be a matter of preference. The pricing is most likely better off next to the dish description or alternatively, right-aligned with the description; it should also be smaller than the dish titles for psychological reasons.

Overall, this looks cheap for what is presumably a high end restaurant. Sorry for being so blunt.

Edit: just noticed the cities text at the top is not bottom aligned. Am I being trolled?

I’ve tried remapping and nothing works...

I think you might be misunderstanding what he's saying.

Map letters of the keyboard alphabet to the buttons on the mouse. This is done in the software of the mouse, not Premiere.

After thats done, go to Premiere and change the shortcuts within Premiere to these Letters.

So letter 'p' is mapped to button on mouse within mouse software. Then in Premiere, the letter 'p' is set to a shortcut, Pan for example.

There shouldn't be any problems in setting up the above. I use the same type of setup in all of my creative software on my Razer Naga and Logitech G502 Proteus Core, from Adobe to Autodesk to Ableton. If you're still struggling, I suggest watching a YouTube tutorial on setting up your mouse.

Original Poster1 point · 7 days ago

Yeah I did that in the Corsair software and no prevail. I did it with “c” and when I open Microsoft word and press the “c” button on mouse it types out c. If I do it in premiere, which is the razor function nothing happens. That’s why it’s frustrating.

I’ve also watched countless YouTube videos step by step and nothing either.

Seems like people are having issues with the side buttons on your mouse.

Check to see if it's not automatically changing profiles when switching to Premiere.

People also said here that updating the software on the mouse fixed it.

This isn’t a bug. It’s been like this since zap could stun. You zapped them before they finished spawning out of the tombstone so it stunned without doing any damage

see more

Doesn't make much sense.

If the status effect of the Zap is applied, then so should the damage.

The two spell effects are (in no particular order, but it's far more logical to have Damage applied before Stun as the unit might not exist after damage is applied I.e. unit dead):

  1. Stun
  2. Damage.

They are meant to be applied together without delay between the two effects.

This is the equivalent of an Ice Spirit only freezing and not applying damage. Both would be bugs and quite significant ones.

I had to deal with this when setting up a Facebook account for a school. They would simply not accept the documentation as it looked foreign to them (in South Africa).

Know what really pissed me off? I could not sign up the school with any accounts such as info@school.com because it stated it was a spam account.

Eventually had to sign the school up as an individual with the school name bring split across First Name and Last Name because we could not get past their sign up and verification process. Such a joke.

You rang?

I was really hyped to believe to that there was something extraordinary happening, banking on the theories of death through solar flare or aliens.

Unfortunately, all the posts about reports and websites disappearing seem to be coincidental and the websites aren't available for other reasons such as server relocation, maintenance etc.

People keep mentioning the missing solar region reports, so here they are (4 September 2018 till 13 September 2018). Taken from ftp://ftp.swpc.noaa.gov/pub/forecasts/SRS/.

Based on my knowledge and expertise in reading solar region reports, which is sweet fuck all, it appears that everything is fine:

This annoyingly makes it look like there's dirt on my phone.

Is this from a sci-fi version of Ozark?

Back when I worked third shift, I was a complete zombie when I had to watch my kid in the morning after work. My ex wife would leave for work in the morning and I would have to stay up another 8 hours until she got back because we couldn't afford a sitter. I wouldn't be able to play with her much because I had to focus on staying awake and just keeping an eye on her. I was always exhausted and felt defeated. Then when my ex would get home I would go lay down for the few hours I had left to sleep before I returned to work, but those would be disturbed because my ex didnt watch her very much while I slept so she constantly came into the room and jumped on the bed and made noise while I tried to sleep. I always felt guilty that I never had the energy to spend more quality time with her and be a better dad. Those days still haunt me honestly. So now that we are divorced, I have to drive an hour and a half to pick my daughter up when we exchange her and drive an hour and a half back. Majority of the time in the car I hold her hand in the backseat while I drive. It's an uncomfortable angle but I never want her to feel unloved or ignored by me ever again.

In this position now and have been for most of her life, 6 years. Have to dedicate myself to a legal battle where I'm the innocent party going after some horrible people. Had to give up my career to continue with the case and now work on it full time at home without any compensation. Get by through renting out the back of out house.

It doesn't bother me that it's mentally and physically changed me for the worse or fucked up my entire career and the future of it. It puts me in tears that they've taken away this time I should have had with my daughter and giving her a better development. The guilt kills me inside. I'll never forgive them for this and putting me in this position, and now I won't stop until they're behind bars for taking away this precious time that I've lost.

I really wish they never killed Flash and ultimately found another way.

It was such an awesome playground for getting the youth in programming and animation as it was completely hands on. Just look at all the crap on Newgrounds from back in the day.

I believe that there is a new Adobe product that fills its place but I've been so swamped with work that I haven't had an opportunity to sit down and explore it.

I know Flash had security vulnerabilities, but it didnt deserve all the unfounded hatred it got where people, Reddit incl., would just blindly hate on it without taking into consideration what Flash brought to the world. People who had no clue about Flash or IT would put it down just because it was the popular thing to do.

Most people dont know that many of the game devs today started with Flash as you could just climb in with a tiny bit of code, draw something yourself and voilà; working shitty game. You can see the influence even in today's mobile games.

I really hoped at the time people would realise that they're killing a vital learning tool, but unfortunately people were more than happy to see it go.

P.S. aware that Flash didnt run on iOS which was a big factor in its demise at the time.

What about all those times we ate their sweets? ;)

J/k. I cant do it. The guilt is too much.

So in the US we have public schools and private schools. Public schools are owned and funded by the government. Every child is entitled to enroll in a public school for free, and attendance is mandatory unless you’re enrolled in some other school or are officially homeschooled.

Private schools are private businesses, usually religious non-profits but not always. These are funded mainly by tuition fees, but also by charitable donations and churches.

A charter school is a private school but which receives its funding from the government. Most charter schools are free to attend and replace public schools. It’s a relatively new scheme to privatize and marketize the education system.

see more

Not from US. It sounds like a good concept (charter schools) but I imagine it's just one of those things that work on paper, but people fuck it up.

You get source by downright killing the soul of a living being.

Sure, Necromancy manipulates and reanimated dead bodies. But taking Source just downright murders their soul.

see more
2 points · 12 days ago · edited 12 days ago

Isn't that just a player choice via a spell?

The game indicates that people naturally generate Source. For example, the Seven Gods has worshippers who would generate Source by worshipping that the Seven Gods would then feed off when the person died.

Also, there are kids running around with Source powers in Fort Joy and other places. I think it's a bit far fetched to believe they were murdering animals and people.

Then there's also the Veil which contains Source indicating it's a resource. It cant be from the Source/souls of dead animals and people since their soul would go to the Hall of Echoes, unless you consumed their soul and therefore, the Source is in you and not the Veil.

Edit: added "soul"

You play the intro too many times you'll get sick of the game fast. The most amazing stories are the stuff in between and the end.

I could nitpick a ton of the game. The game rewards violence over pacifism with more exp. I avoided a ton of encounters with persuasion which made me lower level than I should have been.

see more

This is an old age RPG concept though, isn't it? More evil actions means more power (exp. and loot) where being good requires a sacrifice (no exp. and loot).

Iirc, Baldur's Gate 2 had the same concept but more fleshed out.

Great read.

Re fire spirits at lower levels: Isn't this intentional for beginners so that the game is more forgiving? Always felt it was this way to give effect to the above.
