2020.09.25 06:59 charlesbrandon490 Selecting the right catering for your next event

Whether you are looking forward to a wedding event or a corporate one, the food that you serve to your guests act as a soul of entire event. Once the purpose of your event is accomplished, the attendees would look right at the food tables and ensure that they are going to have some soulful food very soon. Thus, to impress your guests, it is very important to give the food order to the best catering in Medicine Hat. We know that when you type your query as “the best catering near me”, the internet will net you some hundreds of results. And just by looking at the online profile, it is very difficult to imagine how good or bad a catering agency is. Therefore, it is important that you know the right way to select your catering service.
Here are some of the factors that you can consider and ensure that the catering in Medicine Hat that you chose is the best for you:
  1. Check the Availability
Your first duty is to find out the availability of a particular catering agency. No matter how good a catering agency is, if the same is not available to work for you on your decided date, there is no point in keeping it as an option even. Remove those catering agencies who are not available to work on your dates.
  1. Define your budget
When you browse through internet, you will come across the information on how expensive or how affordable the catering agency is. Before you raise your questions about the budget, you can define your budget constraints and filter the agencies who are offering their services in your budget.
  1. Check the food quality
As it is about catering, you cannot take risk with the food quality. The guests will smell the food before they taste it and the quality of any food can be judged easily by giving it one look. If you are already at the website of the catering agency, try to check their gallery images.
  1. Request a menu tasting session
If you are inviting your honored guests, you should encourage the agency for a menu tasting session. If they are authentic and they are working hard for their clients, they would agree to this point and help you taste their food.
  1. Ask for recommendations
Last but not least, you can ask for recommendations from your friends and family. These recommendations can work as the final filter to reach out to a decision.
Once you filter the catering services against the above mentioned factors, we are sure you would soon be able to pick up one right agency for catering in Medicine Hat. For more information, you can reach out to us.

2020.09.25 04:06 varuniitdce Cutting Corners - 2000USD Gaming+Productivity First PC Build

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
Extra info or particulars:
Would be my first PC build. Own an MSi GL62M 7REX (1050Ti) laptop but seems like its hardware is getting outdated fast. The main issue for me is budget which since being in India (with limited options and overpriced parts) is making a decent spec build cross 2000USD in cost. I have this build in mind right now,

2020.09.25 03:09 CommanderMeowch Told that I have 4 days to get out. Looking for any assistance, numbers, monetary, or otherwise

This has been a long awful saga. I moved in as a sublet in March of 2020. I was paying fine and at the end of July found a 3 day notice on the table of our kitchen. I pushed him on it and he denied it up and down, so I started talking with the landlord directly. By this point, I had used part of my Stimulus to pay for June or July rent, can't remember which, and the rest went to bills and food. I should have just moved then and there, I even looked, but many people were very sketch about moving anyone in because of the pandemic.

After this, I worked with the Landlord to get a $3500 rent forgiveness grant from a place called UnitedWay. I told my roommate about it, and he said it sounds like a lie, it won't happen, just doomsayer stuff. Since the apartment is in his name, I had no power in the way of signing up under my name, but eventually got him to take pictures of the required documents. A couple weeks later, I was informed that we were selected for the rent forgiveness, but needed a signed copy from the landlord of the lease, which that line was missing on the picture I had been given. I called the landlord and 2 days later on the date of the deadline I was finally given another picture, literally the same one without the signature.

There are so many awful things this guy has done. He lies through his teeth to others about who I am to make himself look like a victim. He, what I believe, is stole a dog, but says he found it. It already had a collar. I put out ads on craigslist and told him we need to take it to the shelter, we can't take care of it and it's against the lease. At some point during the 2 months the dog was here, the landlord threatened to call animal control and I begged for a bit to find it a good home. I was the one buying the food, the treats, I was doing the training, and while I did not walk it as much as I should (and ended up having to clean up more poop than I wanted), I was the one walking it. In the end, roommate told me that he was bringing itr to the shelter, and literally had to lure it out of my room with treats because it refused to follow him otherwise. I spent the next few days looking at shelters and not being able to find it anywhere. Even confirmed that the listings for dogs were same day, I just wanted to send some dog food there in order for it to have a better chance of finding a home since it was part pit. Turns out, he never brought it to the shelter, all he'll say is 'it's at a friends house'. I believe he either sold it or tossed it somewhere randomly. It breaks my heart and will continue to for a long time. We got in to a shoving match over it because he refused to tell me anything about it, at which point he called the cops and pressed charges on me, and I on him.

We haven't talked in weeks, I barely get in touch with the manager and she has not gotten a payment from either of us this month. A few days ago I received a 30 day notice from him which I thought was fine, I use a site called Amazon mTurk to make ends meet at the moment since my income has dropped immensely since June. In a month, I could probably make enough for a place and deposit, even if I had to borrow from a friends check in 2 weeks. However, when speaking to the property manager, she informed me the owner is coming by on Tuesday to do a last check of the place and wants me out by then. I have very little money on me and asked around with friends but it's so incredibly hard right now with everyone struggling.

I have been in contact with about a dozen rent programs the last 2 days, but most of them are for rent forgiveness of back rent, not for deposits or anything like that. I have literally four days here and I'm very panicky. Last night someone put a flashlight in my window to peak and at some point cut the wire to my internet, which is what I use to work. Luckily I found this out after double checking and was able to cut down the coaxial to get a signal again. This is absolutely not a safe environment and in due time I will be filing my own court case with him, as I called the police last night about it as well, but my obvious more important thoughts are based on having a good place to stay. I'd be willing to rent from any small cheap place on craigslist even if just temporarily to get my income together.

Because I am a subletter, it's very hard to fight the fact that he has ended his tenancy with the landlord. I tried to call a free legal counsel number today but was left on hold for over an hour and a half before they closed outright so I am hoping to call tomorrow.

If anyone can find it in their heart to help me out, anything would help. Right now I can't even afford a storage unit to put my stuff in, I don't own a car or phone service since most of my life is based around working from home, I could just really use some help with saving up money for a deposit, or if anyone has experience with something in the Riverside, CA area that helps with moving in to a new place. I have been praying for another stimulus check for a couple months now, but it's obviously too late at this point to rely on that. I can do my best to verify any of this info if needed.

2020.09.25 02:26 Toby_ZwiftHub How Garmin lost me as a customer in just 1 day

How Garmin lost me as a customer in just 1 day
Hi all,
I share with you the quick chat I just had with the customer support of Garmin. Thanks for the quick response, that is much appreciated. Also thanks for some great products (I use and love the Garmin Varia Radar). But with your policy of discriminating certain customers, you just lost me as one. I will return/sell my Forerunner 945 and take you off my shortlist for future purchases (I was considering switching from my Wahoo Element Bolt to the Garmin Edge 530/830/1030).
Just a quick explanation for my reaction: I recently moved from Europe to Singapore and wasn't aware that you differentiate between ROW (Rest of World) and APAC (Asian Pacific) firmware. I bought a Garmin Forerunner 945 from and received it yesterday. I tried for hours to update my watch (Garmin Express, Garmin Connect, manually putting the beta files on my watch). But all I achieved was that the watch got updated to firmware 4.70. Only hours later I found out about the differentiation between the firmware.
A couple of days' delay in releasing the firmware for a different location would have been acceptable for me. I mean, OK you have to translate things - not really an excuse, but whatever I wouldn't care too much. But firmware 5.00 has been out over a month for the 945 and you can't even give me a date for the release of this firmware in APAC? It can take a few months?
Sorry, but if I buy a top of the line model of a device from a company I don't want a device that lags months behind and is basically outdated.
Sure, quite some of your customers might not care. Of course, the base functions still work. But for me, a reason to pull the trigger on this not cheap device are functions that are come with 5.00 / the newest beta. I want to connect it to my indoor cycling trainer. I want the most up to date sleep metrics and recovery timer. I want the latest User Interface. I want daily suggested workouts. I want Track run. AND I don't want to deal with bugs that have been fixed for months for everyone else around the globe besides APAC.
Just for clarification. In Singapore, the Garmin Forerunner 945 costs 899SGD (see That is with today's exchange rate ca. 653 USD. So it's not discounted in any way to the US prices (599 USD), quite the opposite it costs more.
Rant over. Please Garmin, change this discriminating practice and I might try your products again. At least allow APAC users to put the beta firmware on their devices. As of now, that's a big nogo for me!

2020.09.25 02:08 christinegrab How Can I, As An Individual, Fight Government Corruption (Legally and Peacefully)

Four years ago, I caught California's income tax agency, the Franchise Tax Board, running an unlawful embezzlement and racketeering scheme. I have been diligently fighting to end the corruption. Someone asked me for advice on how they could also fight the government, and I figured I'd post the answer here. This advice is probably useful for other types of corruption, too.
The first thing to do is to pick an issue that you think you could have the most impact on. There are a lot of corruption issues that people see and think “Issue Y is really messed up, but X is way worse.” Yes, X may be worse, but if there are already a lot of people working on X, you will have far more impact by working on Y instead.
You will usually have the most impact if you choose a local issue, something within your own city/county/state. Local issues take less people pushing to make effective changes. And, the more you can get in the officials’ faces, the harder it is to blow you off.
The secret to success is to wrest control of the narrative away from the Agency you are fighting. He who controls the narrative wins the war. Since the Agency is corrupt, they are necessarily hiding that corruption via a false narrative that is delivered in a confident and authoritative tone. You have to find the lies and expose them in an equally confident and authoritative tone, putting them on the defensive (example 1 is my Appellant’s Second Response Brief where I call out the FTB lawyer made improper redactions, improper omissions and false statements in the OTA case; example 2 is my CA Superior Court Complaint).
They will try many maneuvers to wrest control of the narrative back, and put you on the defensive (examples: 1 is the letter from the Bar Association saying FTB’s lawyer did nothing wrong in the OTA case; example 2 is the FTB’s Answer where they made a blanket statement denying wrongdoing and citing random laws to try to sound legit; ).
You can’t let them. You have to stick confidently to your narrative of truth (example 1, I filed a CA Supreme Court Accusation in response to Bar’s claims that FTB’s lawyer did nothing wrong. Example 2 is the request that I filed with the judge to throw out their Answer because it was bogus).
As you confront the Agency’s false narratives, send regular updates to everyone up the food chain. I copied the governor, FTB’s board of directors, several other state legislators, the FBI and the CA Auditor’s office on many pieces of correspondence in which I called FTB out on their very strange accounting and their unethical business practices. I included a cover letter explaining exactly why these were suspicious/incriminating, and I made sure the cover letter also filled in any gaps in info that may not have been self-evident. The legislators need things spelled out for them clearly and concisely to understand. FTB continually tried to ignore me altogether, but they couldn’t because the Governor, Controller, and my Assemblyman made them respond to me.
Navigating government bureaucracy is MADDENING, and that is by design. They want you to get frustrated, give up and go away. It will take you a while to figure out exactly how the system works. Ask a lot of people in the assorted government offices involved in the corruption/cover up, because each person will give you slightly different info and you won’t know the full picture without talking to several people/departments/agencies. Everyone will forget a piece of info, or not think its relevant, or whatever. Ask for the legal basis for all of these policies and practices.
Another great place to get information from is the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) for national government agencies. Most states have their own version of FOIA, as well. California’s version is called the Public Records Act (PRA). When you make a request under one of these acts, they have to disclose all kinds of information that they normally try to hide. There is usually a person/department at each agency that handles the requests. You will have to find the right person/department and contact them direct. Also pay close attention to what they don’t disclose.
Once you understand how the system works, you can push for the appropriate changes. You have to be tenacious. They have a vested interest in keeping things status quo, and they will try all sorts of narrative-control tactics to get you to shut up and go away. Do not back down. Keep pushing back.
They will try to intimidate you. They will try to imply you are somehow breaking the law by calling out their crimes. They will imply that you will face nasty consequences for speaking out. You’ll likely be harassed, as well.
They will attempt to smear your credibility; painting you as a raving lunatic who doesn’t know what you are talking about. To give you one example, FTB sent a letter that they copied to State Controller Yee in which they claimed I had been assessed fees because I “never responded to notices.” The wording of their letter made me sound like a lazy dirt bag. In my OTA appeal, I documented that I responded to notices 71 times. This attempted smear actually bit FTB in the butt, because I was later able to publicly call them out on their “strange internal vocabulary” that is used to deceive regulators.
Another tactic to control the narrative is to misquote laws, or take laws out of context, or cherry pick words to make it appear that the laws say something different than they actually do. Make sure you get online to a law library and read the text of each law they cite you in full. Regular online browser searches usually don’t pull up the sub-laws underneath the main law, and those sub-laws are often favorable for you. I know anyone can use the online San Diego law library:
One of the things I have learned is that the agencies will not volunteer any information, but they will usually not lie to you if you ask them a direct question. They will, however, use deceptive wording to deliberately mislead you. So ask a lot of questions, and re-ask them using slightly different wording. The different nuance in the phrasing may be the difference between what they have to disclose and not. Parse their answers carefully to make sure they actually answered the questions instead of giving you a pile of meaningless fluff. If they refuse to answer a question, then you know you have hit the right question, and will have to go up the food chain to get an answer.
In my case, I found out that I had a right to a copy of all the internal notes and records that FTB had on me. I asked several times about getting my hands on my information, and at first they refused to answer the questions. After a few complaint letters to the governor, board of directors, et all, they finally admitted I could have the internal notes and records. There were many, many smoking guns in those notes. I would have never been able to get so far in my fight without those notes… which is why they tried so hard to hide them from me.
And remember that I did say usually. In my case, I started complaining about FTB’s screwed up policies back in 2016 and 2017. Everyone at the FTB told me that only legislators could change the policies and procedures at the FTB. In late 2017, a tax lobbyist told me that there is something called The Annual Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights Meeting that I could attend to make these policy/procedure change requests directly to the FTB’s Board of Directors. I called out FTB’s lying to hide these meetings in my 2017 and 2018 Requests, and in 2019, they did finally update their website to disclose this right to the public. So I guess the point I am circling back to here is that you need to talk to lots of people to really understand the bureaucracy.
Remember that other government agencies and legislators will participate in the cover-up. They have a vested interest in keeping the system status quo, so they will do whatever they can to protect “the system.” Governors Brown and Newsom, Controller Yee, Department of Finance Directors Michael Cohen and Keely Bosner, assorted leadership at GovOps (that place has a lot of turnover), the Office of Tax Appeals, the CA Bar Association, the CA Attorney General’s office, and many elected officials have been actively covering up the crimes that I have exposed. But I am undaunted. Every time I am rebuffed by a venue, I expose they are also exploitative criminals who need to be ousted when we finally re-org the system. I take each “go away” as a success in finding the corrupt who need to be weeded out.
I hope this is enough for you to get started! At this point, it is clear that the government is trying to exploit the pandemic to shore up complete power, so we all need to jump in and fight. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have much time, every bit helps. It is perfectly fine to pick an area of minor corruption. Minor crime is the base of the wall in which the higher crimes are built upon. Every bit of corruption needs to be eliminated, and it’ll probably be easier to see success in halting the minor crimes… and as you take down the minor criminals, chances are you’ll find connections with them to bigger crimes.

2020.09.25 02:00 RichterRicochet [California/Canada]A friend of mine has recently commissioned a digital asset, but the creator won't release the source files.

Alright, I'm going to do my best to stay as factual as I can without getting emotional about the situation;
My friend will be listed as Client and is based in Canada, and the creator will be listed as Creator, who is based in Santa Rosa, CA.
So, Client recently commissioned Creator via Patreon to create a world for the video game VRChat, and at the time Creator's patreon stated that the pricing tier that Client subscribed to would include "VRChat World Commissions". What "VRChat World Commissions" was defined as was never clearly stated, however in the context of art/assets, Client believed it to be the creation of an asset, along with providing the original source files for upload to Client's VRChat account, so that Client could make modifications to the VRChat world, without constantly needing to consult Creator for every minomajor update.
Client made purchase of this Patreon tier on 8/19, the same date the beta of the world was released to 'VRChat Labs', and the 1.0 release was not until some time after 8/22, according to the evidence I've received. And, it's also noted that the creator of the world still retains control over who can/cannot join the World within the context of VRChat while the world is still uploaded to their account, meaning Creator can control who Client can and cannot hangout with while in the world they commissioned.
When Client requested the source files, Creator refused to release them, stating that
"you have the map, its just not on your computer i delivered a product, as of the time, it was to your expectations, i apologize for your expectations changing after the fact of delivery my method of delivery has still gotten a useable map to you and your community, I do not wish to give source files over for these jobs, i have not done so to my clients in the past, and i do not plan on doing so anytime in the near future now i would appreciate it if you would leave me alone about this, as i have more important things i need to deal with right now, i am currently busy with an active job from another client"
Client goes on to state that they were (at the time) still a paying member on Patreon, and were actively being shrugged off/avoided. Creator acknowledged this fact and stated that Client could halt payment at any time (which they did). And then, Creator proceeds to then go on a rant about being disrespected by Client and Client's community, which isn't relevant to the overall problem.
So, in this instance, who maintains control of the digital asset in this scenario (the VRChat World)? Would it be Client, because they paid for a product? That world which has now been stripped from them as Creator de-branded the world, and has stripped all in-world evidence of it ever belonging to the community. Or, would it be creator, simply for designing the world, even though they were paid for the creation of this product?
And, if in this case, the control of the digital asset rests with Client, how do they go about either getting their money back from Creator for an asset that wasn't released, or acquiring the source files as was the original intention? Bare in mind, Client has already reached out to Patreon, and Patreon referred client back to Creator for refund. Creator of course, is not issuing refund.
TL;DR: Friend of mine commissions VRChat world and wants source files, Creator of the world won't release the source, and now we can't figure out who owns the rights to the world if it was a purchased product.

2020.09.25 01:17 hoser2112 9-24 COVID-19 Update for Santa Clara County

The county reported 109 new cases today, and I count 104 of those falling within the past 7 days. The county reported 4 new deaths. We are now in the Red Tier. The state monitoring chart is updated weekly, the site currently lists a daily COVID-19 case per 100k rate of 5.6 (for the week ending 9/12), with an adjusted case rate of 4.7 (there's an adjustment factor depending on how many tests per 100k you do compared against the state average, for Santa Clara's testing rate that adjustment factor is currently 0.830).

The growth of new cases, eliminating the most recent 2 days and then comparing the previous 7 days to the 7 days before that, we end up with 0.93. If we do the same, but eliminate the most recent 5 days, we end up with 1.08. In all cases, a number over 1 means the number of new cases per day is growing, a number less than 1 means the number of new cases per day is shrinking.
The daily average case rate per 100k over the past 7 days (excluding the most recent three days) is 6.35. The adjusted case rate is 5.27.
Note that the date a case is reported on is the date of the first test, not when the results were reported, so the data for the last 5+ days is incomplete and cases will continue to be added to those dates.

Statements by Dr Hinshaw
Opioid Report
  • Many Albertans who use opioids face challenges and the pandemic has had dire impacts on their lives
  • In the first 6 months of 2020, 449 died from apparent unintentional opioid poisoning (301 between April and June)
  • Deaths rose during first few months of pandemic. Challenges were faced in accessing supports/service while increasing stress/anxiety/isolation occurred
  • 3,000+ emergency/urgent care visits related to opioid use between April and June
  • Other jurisdictions have seen similar trends
  • Covid protocol has been adjusted to ensure individuals who use drugs can access critical services (harm reduction to treatment to recovery)
  • Will continue to work to reduce the impact of Covid prevention measures on accessing services
  • Stresses that help is available and, if you use drugs, don't use them alone
  • "Ripple effects" of Covid is large and we need to balance Covid-19 and the impacts of the restrictions
  • 13 schools with alerts have had no transmission since
  • Active alerts/outbreaks (1+ cases) in 97 schools with 163 active cases in total (4% of schools)
  • 32 school outbreaks (2+ cases), 7 with likely transmission, 4 with 5+ cases
  • In school aged cases, weekly # of 5-19 year olds are most strongly trending with overall cases, with peak cases in age group matching peak cases in Alberta
  • Since school started, there has been a week-over-week decrease in cases for this age group despite increases in testing for this group
  • This isn't to minimize school safety, but to highlight importance of community transmission
  • Death today was in Foothills
  • Foothills outbreak is concerning and AHS is moving quickly
  • 29 cases (17 patients), 3 deaths in total to date
  • AHS is testing and isolating with "significant precautions"
  • Multiple staff swabbing sites have been installed to increase staff testing on outbreak units. Staff on units are screened twice daily
  • Natural to ask if hospitals are at risk. AHS has moved quickly to protect
  • Stresses that policy is only part of the equation: we all must do our part
  • If you are sick, do not visit/enter a care facility and follow the public health measures "to the letter" while there
  • Recognizes the inconvenience and financial difficulty. Continues to advocate that employers support their employees whenever possible so they can stay home when sick...also recognizes that this can be difficult on employers
  • While we want to meet during Thanksgiving, we want to keep it safe
  • Keep it to a maximum 15 people outside your household
  • Have one person plate everyone's meals (or even pre-portion the meal)
Q&A - Second Wave
  • Do you agree with Trudeau's statement that we are in the second wave?: A "wave" implies we have no control over the transmission. Some provinces have determined what they call a wave. Doesn't think that's where Alberta growth is growing but have been relatively stable. Waves are one possible future, as are "small ripples". Albertan's actions are going to decide which we see
  • Are targeted lockdowns being planned in the event of second wave?: It is an option (refers to "enhanced" category online)
Q&A - Covid Cases
  • Should we expect testing numbers to change with no more asymptomatic testing?: It hasn't impacted volume of testing to date. Seems too early to say
  • Why no new model?: Models do not predict future and, while a new model is in development, the overall question of "what we will see" in the fall is already publicly known
  • Is the outbreak in Hope Mission Shelter going to require an increase in distance between mats?: Yes, as per guidelines. Hasn't asked local colleague to ensure has occurred yet
  • Source for Foothills outbreak?: No further information
Q&A - Other
  • Officials in US/Canada are increasingly being personally targeted. Why is this happening? Are you?: Pandemic has caused suffering and health professionals become easy outlet for suffering. While receiving a lot of correspondence from Albertans (including personal and professional criticisms), hasn't received "hate mail or threats"
  • Do you think the harassment is tied to being a woman?: Difficult question to answer as she can only go with her own experience. May be interesting to discuss with male counterparts. Regardless, questions and criticism should be presented respectfully
  • You previously recommended supervised consumption sites for opioids. Are you still pressing for it?: Important to separate different bodies of work. Thinks that "broad spectrum of services" is important. Allocation of resources are policy decisions (defers to Ministers after this)
Additional information will be logged below:
  • Edmonton Northeast's active cases: 93 (-14)
  • Calgary Upper NE's active cases: 104 (+1)

2020.09.24 22:26 marmoshet Moving to LA, can someone confirm if I can park overnight on Sawtelle Blvd in Mar Vista?

I've taken a look at the Google Maps street view of the area (street sign only says 8am - 10am on Tues is prohibited) but I'm wary because the image is dated April 2019.
Can someone who lives in the area confirm if I can park overnight? It's just for a few nights. If not are there any streets nearby I can park on?
Specifically the area I'm looking at is near Sawtelle / Stanwood.

2020.09.24 22:14 wow-allday Looking for a PC in the $1000 range; I have made a list and am just asking for advice on a few components.

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
Mainly playing WoW: Shadowlands, and newer gen games, like Cyberpunk 2077.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
Within the next couple of weeks-- However, if speculation is there about possible price changes, I am willing to wait.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Everything except peripherals
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
United States with no microcenters nearby
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
HyperX Alloy Origins Core w/ Red switches 2014 Razer Naga Ultimate
2 60Hz monitors
1TB HDD from my 2012 prebuilt
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
No overclocking or overclocking knowledge to even try
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
I really need an SSD for WoW and boot up software.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Full tower case, RGB if simple to set up and fits the budget, glass panel case
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
Yes, Windows 64bit will be needed
Extra info or particulars:
I am looking at building my first PC. Right now, I've got an HP Envy Phoenix from around 2012 that I have added a GTX970 to.
My main game will be WoW: Shadowlands, and maybe Cyberpunk and Horizon Zero Dawn-esque graphics games. I am not looking for 4k ultra high res ultra settings, etc. I just want 60fps on decent, playable settings ("high" graphics, not ultra).
Right now, I am looking for a new PC because I'm running everything including boot software on an HDD, and my PSU cords hardly fit in my case. Not to mention, my 970 is getting very old and my motherboard is not compatible with DDR4, etc.
So, here's my list. Should I go with a 1660 super, or should I look at changing stuff around and getting a 2070, etc.?

2020.09.24 20:46 dnt2491 Do I have any legal recourse w/ a shady body shop?

Hi there,
I'm in CA. My car was towed to a body shop after a collision (first accident). It was a Sunday, and against my better judgment I let a random tow shop that showed up take the car instead of waiting until the following day to have AAA tow it to Ford. I was so upset I didn't even want to look at the car, just wanted it out of my sight. This shop has pretty much been a nightmare since. Had an issue where they moved the car to a second location without my knowledge and another where I came by to pick up my work badge and my apple cord was taken from the USB port and I noticed that my side bins had been rummaged through. Ran the idea of moving shops by my insurance and they were pretty dismissive so again, against my better judgment, I bit my tongue and didn't press the issue further.
The biggest issue I had with them was about a week ago. My rental coverage through my insurance policy ran out so they offered me a loaner car. '07 Prius reeking of Marijuana, no working drivers seat belt and no working left blinker. Obviously, not safe to drive and not smart to drive in the event I get pulled over. I attempted to get the situation fixed with them and kept getting the runaround so I decided to just drop it back off to them and pay out of pocket for a rental car, but that was my last straw with these guys so Monday I requested that they release my vehicle.
Again, my insurance (Allstate, if this matters) said that we're in pretty deep and he advised against trying to get it released so late, but this time I demanded that we get the car away from them. The shop said they'd send my insurance company the second bill (not sure what they're billing since they've claimed they've been waiting for ordered parts for over a week and a half.) I filed a complaint with the BBB and maybe I did that too quickly because I got an email last night stating that it's been sent to the business already :0
Accident was on Aug 9 and the initial estimate gave a completion date of 15 days. If I'm missing anything please go ahead and ask, I know next to nothing about accidents or cars, so I'm honestly just looking for any helpful advice, but not trying to sue, as well as if there is any recourse as far as steps I can take to keep them from BSing the charges.
Also, more info if needed: I wasn't found at fault for the accident but the other driver was uninsured so this is all being handled through my UM coverage.
any help is appreciated!

2020.09.24 19:27 survivalsecret099 Finally feeling more comfortable about my sexuality and wanted to tell my story

Hey there- I just stumbled on this sub and it seems like such an open and safe space and I don’t always have people in my life I can be open with about my sexuality story and so I just wanted to post it here. Not looking for any particular advice but just want to celebrate the internal freedom I have found over the past few years and tell my story. Maybe I can help anyone else who’s struggled the same I ways I have. Apologies for the length of the post, there was just a lot I wanted to share and get off my chest. I am a 22 year old male btw.
So as a kid, I can recall having crushes on guys and girls, but I never really registered that my crushes on guys were actually crushes. I just assumed that I was straight because I come from a very conservative religious background and that’s the norm. I had a lot of internalized homophobia that I didn’t even realize at the time. Flash forward to my freshman year of college and I’m beginning to come to terms with the fact that I found some guys insanely attractive, yet still felt a strong romantic desire to be with girls. It took about a year or two of me dealing with this and wrestling with my sexuality until I finally accepted that I must be bi. That’s the label I would use although I still don’t like labeling things because I find it kind of pointless. But if I had to have a label, it would be bi. Realizing this was somewhat freeing in itself, but I still had so much fear about telling anyone. I was afraid no one would accept me or that I would be treated differently. This, though there were other factors, was what primarily led to my depression and anxiety that I had to face for the next few years and still do somewhat today, though less so than in the past, and not as much because of my sexuality anymore.
At the tail end of my freshman year, I found a group of friends (two guys, two girls, plus me) and it was nice to be included in that and have people to do fun things with all the time. I spent the majority of sophomore year hanging out with them all the time because why not? But also it was because I was super attracted to my male friend. I mean he just has such a great face and attractive fit body and super fun personality. The whole package honestly. But as far as I know, he’s straight. He even started dating one of the girls in our friend group and I love them both as friends so of course I was happy for them, but I also couldn’t help being a little jealous. However, the two of us would also spend a lot of time together playing video games most nights and hanging out since our dorm rooms were close by. We’d stay up supppper late just hanging out. He was always super flirty and made offhand comments about doing stuff with guys and it even became sort of a running joke amongst my friend group that he was bicurious because of the way he flirted with me and other guy friends. And especially when we were alone together, he would always move his legs over mine on the couch so that they were perpendicular, sometimes he would grab my head and pretend to lean in for a kiss then turn away and laugh about it, hover his hand over my crotch, talk about cuddling/sleeping in the same bed, shoving his crotch and bare ass close to my face, and other things that I’ve forgotten. We’d also get high a lot and that was when he really seemed to be extra flirty, like his inhibitions were lowered. Now looking back I can recognize that I probably read into some things more than I should, especially when I was high, but I also don’t think I was making it all up either. Regardless, that was the nature of our friendship and the fact that I felt so strongly for him but never admitted it to him or any other friends for fear of being rejected was REALLY wearing on me. My mental health and self worth were at an all time low. I wanted to tell him how I felt and for him to feel the same way but I knew that was unlikely and knew it would put a strain on our friendship and our friend group as a whole. Plus his gf was one of my closest friends too and I would never have wanted to do anything to hurt her or their relationship either.
However, by the end of sophomore year I really didn’t know what to do. I was sort of seeing this girl (let’s call her Sarah) at the time, we had hooked up a couple times and one drunk night I admitted to her that it was hard for me to be fully invested in her because I was bi and had a crush on my friend. I probably shouldn’t have said anything but I just needed to talk to someone and I thought she would be understanding. I asked her to keep it to herself, but sometime in the next day or two, I got a text from HER friend that I barely knew and she admitted to me that Sarah had told her AND my whole friend group what I had admitted to her literally the same night that I had asked her to keep it to herself. I was mortified and went into extreme panic mode. Thank GOD for this girl who texted me though. A true angel. She said how her brother is gay and she didn’t feel it was right for her to be outing me to people and thought I should know that she told my friends about my sexuality/crush. So anyways, it meant that I needed to have conversations with my friends about what was said, which was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. I immediately cut off Sarah (after a lengthy text explaining how despicable it was for her to out me like that and that I had no desire to ever see her again) and then had conversations with the two girls in my friend group, one of whom was my crush’s gf, and then both of my guy friends. Thankfully they were all super understanding and said they were surprised when Sarah told them this stuff and didn’t want to believe anything or bring it up until they heard it from me. They were extremely respectful and I’m so so grateful for their responses. As far as my crush, he also was super gracious and didn’t make it weird, I answered any questions he had and explained that I couldn’t control how I felt but I didn’t want to ruin our friendship over this and I wanted to move past it.
I know I’m rambling a bit so I’ll try and sum the rest up more quickly. Basically, I had already decided to move into an apartment with both of my guy friends before this happened and thankfully the fact that I was bi didn’t change that decision. However I assumed I would be better at getting over this crush than I was. Last year, my junior year of college, it just got worse and worse to be living with my crush. He was always just a tempting treat to look at and I was getting increasingly jealous about how much time he spent with his gf and other friends that weren’t me. Our friendship dynamic was just different, which I totally understood, but at the same time it was just incredibly hard. I got a gf later on in the year which was good and I finally decided to lose my virginity with her, which was great. 10/10 recommend lol. But I couldn’t bring myself to admit to her about my sexuality because I didn’t want her to hurt me the way the other girl did and because I didn’t want her to think I was more into my friend/roommate than her. So my mental health just got worse again. I was out to myself, out to my closest friends, but still had so much self hatred and desire to be “normal.”
After the pandemic hit, I moved back home from CA to Illinois. I ended the relationship with my gf because of the distance and also because I never truly wanted to be with her, but rather wanted to experience sex and to be with someone, anyone, to help me get over my same sex crush and move on. It wasn’t exactly healthy. A lot of stuff wasn’t healthy for me. Now, after being home for the past 6 months and now doing school online, it has been nice because my mental health needed a break. I’ve finally been able to truly get over the crush that I had and if I go back and hang with my friends again, I feel more confident in my ability to not fall back into old ways of thinking. Overall I just feel like I’m in a happier place in my life. I decided recently that I wanted to actually experiment with guys and explore that more since I never really had done that, so last week I went on Grindr and went to a guys house and ended up having sex with him. Like amazing sex. I knew I was into guys but wow, like it was really good. And now, in some strange way I feel even more sure of myself and my sexuality to where I don’t feel bad about experiencing bi feelings. I’m not going to bring it up to people because it’s personal to me, but I also don’t need to hide it. I feel much more comfortable in my own skin because of the struggles that I went through to accept myself for who I am. I’m not perfect still, and having a religious background is still something that can bring down your self esteem after sexual experiences of any kind, but I just feel so. much. better. I haven’t come out to my parents and I think someday I will, especially if I start dating a guy. But right now I’m comfortable in being who I am privately and not being afraid of what people might think were they to know that I’m bi. I know my story is long and maybe not as coherent as it could be but I felt the need to share it with people who get me and have gone through the same things. I just want every guy out there who is bi to know that you aren’t alone and that things will get better. I think therapy is a great place to start if your mental health is bad because I went to therapy all last year to deal with my feelings and my jealousy and it helped a lot. I know I won’t always be happy about being bi and that it’s sure to create some more problems down the line but I feel much more confident in myself and my ability to handle it so I don’t feel like offing myself every other day. Bi pride to you all! :)

2020.09.24 19:17 u_astirk Girlfriend (21) with a potential move to boyfriend’s (25) home state (1.5 yr relationship)

My boyfriend and I have been together for 1.5 years & are new to a LDR (2 months). He just recently moved back home to WA to attend college, while I’m in CA- just graduated and started a new job.
For the longest time, it’s been my dream to move to WA. It seemed like fate to have met a guy who’s home state was in my dream location.
Now, since his move back home and us both starting new chapters of our lives, all we want is for us to reunite. However, there are many obstacles in our way.
We’re doing the daily phone/video calls and visiting each other as much as we can. We’re (currently) all in.
Goal move date: August 2021 - At that point, almost all of my loans will be paid off - I’ll have ~$10k saved
Ultimately my questions are: 1. Am I planning too far in advance (too soon in our relationship)? 2. Is it really a bad thing to move (not only for a job) but also for a boyfriend? 3. Would you move if you were in my shoes?

2020.09.24 18:39 VlachSlv De ce sunt casele noi din Romania asa de urate?

Serios, de ce arata asa oribil si fara personalitate? Eu uitandu-ma in orice loc vad doar cutii de beton si prefabricate vopsite in culori stridente, fara nicio arhitectura, fara nimic pe exterior in afara de peretii aceia plati, uneori mai vad pietre date cu lac si la propriu lipite de pereti in forme care mai de care, ca sa arate mai "rustic". Acoperisurile au forme dubioase, fara sens, pentru ca un acoperis simplu in doua ape nu e suficient, trebuie sa il complici pana arata de parca planurile pentru cladire au fost desenate de un copil de 7 ani cu imaginatia bogata. Mai sunt si cele care copiaza stiluri arhitecturale din alte tari, deci cand te duci la munte poti sa vezi vile medieteraneene langa paduri de brad, facute langa adevarate conace neoromanesti care sunt pe punctul de a se prabusi, dar tot sunt mai frumoase ca abominatiunile noi. Vedeam poze din Zakopane, Polonia, iar toate cladirile, inclusiv cabanele- erau construite in stil traditional, cu variatii, cum e si logic- dar stilul era traditional si specific zonei. Cat credeti ca mai dureaza pana isi dau seama si bombardierii de la noi ca acele case sunt oribile si nu au pic de gust si lasa o pata care va rezista decenii in peisajul unui oras?

2020.09.24 18:34 Kaywin Moving states, medication/script question

I’m finally back on Concerta for 1-2 months now after dicking around with antidepressants for a year and some change.... and just in time for my fiancée and I to move from CA to IL. Yay!
When I asked my psychiatrist if he could send a prescription to IL, he told me “no, because he isn’t licensed to prescribe in IL.” That didn’t make a lot of sense to me, since I know IL honors out-of-state prescriptions. I figured I could get a paper script and bring it to an IL pharmacy. It would be a CA script but filled in IL.
This is likely a super temporary issue anyway, as I have an appointment already scheduled with a psychiatrist in IL a couple days after I arrive. But I have irrational fears of my access to medication being disrupted regardless. My meds are set to run out about a week after we arrive in IL. I have a last appointment scheduled with my current provider on 10/8, but even if he gives me a new electronic script I don’t think I’ll be able to fill my script in CA before we go, because my last fill date was 9/14 and we leave for IL on 10/11. Maybe I could ask for him to give me a paper script?
Thoughts? Literally my improved performance from being back on this medication is the ONLY reason I’ve been able to orchestrate the cross-country move my fiancée and I have wanted since 2019. Even with the scheduled appointment with the new provider, I’m very concerned about losing access to my medication, and equally terrified about coming across as a “pill chaser.” All I want is to be functional ;_;
