2023.06.09 10:52 embillus cryptic apology text from my mom at 4 am

around 4:30 am, my mom texted me a text that says:
“Please forgive me for not being the mother you want and for making you feel you have to meet expectations. Im always trying to take care of your health physical and mentally and keep you safe from the bad stuff that life gives you but afterwards it’s you who needs to learn. So just wanted to tell you I’m sorry I know you don’t know how to forgive people but I just wanted you to know.”
i naturally want to validate her apology and treat this as a turning point. but how many turning points do we have to go through to realize that it’s not working? this is probably the fifth text i’ve gotten like this from her. she’s a narcissist most of the time, and i feel horrible saying that about my own mom but, facing facts, my problems are based around her.
i don’t know what to say to this text. if anything. i live with her but if i didn’t bring it up in conversation, she most likely wouldn’t either. and that’s definitely the problem, communication. but it just feels impossible most days.
anyways, let me know your thoughts. i can’t form a proper response anymore.

What You Get:

Program #1

CTC Launches

(to master your launch and funnel sequences)
10X Launches is the first copywriting program fully engineered to speed up the execution and amplify your results of your emails no matter what kind of funnel or launch strategy you’re rolling out.
It’s built not only for best-in-class launch copywriters…
But for coaches, consultants, course creators, and ANYONE who stands to benefit from nailing down their launch and funnel copy faster and with more genuine impact.

2 “Core” Modules

That will initiate you into the “Coaching The Conversion™ method, and how to leverage a new, more empowering definition of “direct response” that opens up the floodgates to greater intimacy, empathy, and conversions.

5 “Launch” Modules

breaking down every single phase of your launch or funnel in full detail (including some you didn’t even know existed). You’ll learn exactly what’s at play during the Segmentation & Confirmation, Pre-Launch, Launch, Sales and Closing phases of your funnel and how to quickly craft the messaging that coaches your prospect into the final conversion in a powerful, non-sleazy way.

25+ Email Templates

None of that BS “plug’n’play” or “swipe and deploy” stuff that shoehorns your message into lifeless boxes that robs it of all life and power.
Instead, you’ll get FULL breakdowns and walkthroughs of the go-to templates I turn to over-and-over again in 6 and 7-figure launch campaigns.
Meaning, you get to craft your OWN high-converting launch emails in about 25 minutes flat and fire them into ConvertKit, ActiveCampaign (or wtv you’re using) while your coffee’s still hot.

Program #2

CTC Sales Pages

(to master your long form sales page)
This is it.
It’s where the best paid copywriters, coaches and course marketers on the planet earn their keep.
It’s where the conversion either happens or it doesn’t. In cold hard numbers that don’t care how many Clif bars you stress-ate in the process.
It’s where the most admired online business owners transform interest, desire, and engagement and into what you actually want: Sales.
So what is “it”?
It’s your long-form sales page.
And the truth is… most copywriters and marketers avoid long-form sales pages like the plague… treating it like a close-talking lepper with coffee breath… instead of the 24/7 salesperson your sales page – that final step in your marketing funnel – should be.
So why do marketers (and even pro-level copywriters) avoid sales pages?
Because writing a long-form sales page is intimidating AF.
It’s the Night King of the Whitewalker army.
It’s the Beef Wellington on Hell’s Kitchen.
It’s the Lord Voldemort of your marketing funnel – aka the funnel asset that shall not be named.
A long-form sales page is where you’ll spend dozens of hours writing THOUSANDS of words that will either confirm your claim as a top player in your space…
Or will tell you with Gordon-Ramsay-esque candor that your marketing wasn’t as good as your business coach told you it was.
There’s real pressure in that.
But there’s even real-er payoff in being able to do it faster – and more profitably – than anyone else in your industry. A payoff that even affords you the right to make up words like real-er
Confronting, yep? Conquerable. Absolutely.
In CTC Sales Pages, you’ll go through the exact process I’ve used to write over twenty 6 and 7-figure sales pages for the likes of Amy Porterfield, Copyhackers, and many more.

Program #3 & #4

Six Figure Emails & Seven Figure Emails

(for even more email conversion badassery)
Welcome to the “Johnnie Walker Blue” of our email template series.
This is the premium blend for more advanced marketing palates.
All pulled straight from my highest-performing launches for industry titans like Amy Porterfield, Todd Herman, Traffic & Funnels, and Copyhackers.
What you’re getting are 13 advanced email templates that you can use in a pinch when you need to write a standalone sales email, a webinar invitation, a post-webinar replay, downsell, or flash sale.
To be clear, these aren’t those sketchy and lifeless “swipe and deploy” templates you may have seen swimming around the shadier parts of the online marketing cesspool.
These are loose, flexible templates that guide you through deep-dive masterclasses teaching you the advanced psychology behind each one.
Meaning, you actually understand WHY they work, and are fully empowered to engineer them to best serve your audience.

Program #5

Minimum Viable Launch 2.0

(to quickly rock profitable and lean email launches)
We’ve taken the single most impactful part of 10x Launches; the part that countless students have credited with producing game-changing ROI in record time…
And given it a fresh-for-2022 facelift.
Not only will you be getting access to a stack of NEW templates that we’ve added to the stack based on repeated tests and real-world results.
But we’ll be offering you the one-click automation uploads to bring the whole sequence straight into your ActiveCampaign to save you and your team about 5+ hours of heavy-duty integration time.

Program #6

Application Funnel Amplifiers

(for creating powerful pre-call enrollment experiences)
Fact: The enrollment experience begins the moment your prospect books a call.
If you mail it in for those 12-72 hours between when they book the call — and show up to it, you’re missing a golden opportunity to begin coaching the necessary transformations.
In this brand new program, you’ll learn how we to consciously engineering your entire application experience to pre-empt objections, create magnetism, and stack the odds in favor of having a successful enrollment conversation
You’ll get practical answers to:
  • When you should be transparent about your pricing BEFORE a sales call
  • How to strategically structure your application questions in a way that actually coaches your pre-customer into your program (yes, the questions are copy)
  • What to put on your booking confirmation page to create incredible momentum and a “point of no return” into your program
  • What tools and systems we use to create a seamless application and booking experience

Program #7

Next-Level Automation & Optimization Stack

(upcoming and ongoing automation tutorials)
As the CTC Membership evolves, our resident Wizard, Philip Powis will be actively adding a library of importable one-click automations (into ActiveCampaign), leveraged software playbooks, and a running list of the most advanced (and cost effective) tools and systems that he recommends for fast-scaling course and coaching businesses.

2023.06.09 10:51 ProMate04 Input shaping breaks homing

Recently I made the jump to Klipper. I have had success with it, everything is correctly configured and I can print with it no problem.
Yesterday I printed a mounting piece for my accelerometer, so I could calibrate Input Shaping.
All went well, I could get some values and I was ready for testing. When starting a print, it fails with an out of range move: !! Move out of range: -0.012 -9.012 10.000 [0.000]
This happens right after the printer finishes the G28, home all axis command, and the printhead is in the middle of the bed. Naturally after homing, it tries to go back to the home position, which in my case is 0,-9. Interestingly, on both axis, it subtracts 0.012, and makes the move invalid since it is out of range. Figured it was input shaping, and sure enough, when I comment out the set input shaping parameters in the printer.cfg file, the problem goes away.
Any ideas on what I could do? Is there a way to temporarly disable input shaping while homing so this does not happen, or am I doing something competely wrong?
I have a modded Ender 3 Neo, with the Sprite Extruder Pro hotend. Here is the printer.cfg file:

# To use this config, during "make menuconfig" select the
# STM32F103 with a "28KiB bootloader" and serial (on USART1 PA10/PA9)
# communication.

# If you prefer a direct serial connection, in "make menuconfig"
# select "Enable extra low-level configuration options" and select
# serial (on USART3 PB11/PB10), which is broken out on the 10 pin IDC
# cable used for the LCD module as follows:
# 3: Tx, 4: Rx, 9: GND, 10: VCC

# Flash this firmware by copying "out/klipper.bin" to a SD card and
# turning on the printer with the card inserted. The firmware
# filename must end in ".bin" and must not match the last filename
# that was flashed.

# See docs/ for a description of parameters.

2023.06.09 10:51 wishmmed How Advantageous Are Medical Pharmaceutical Vaccine Refrigerators?

How Advantageous Are Medical Pharmaceutical Vaccine Refrigerators?
The medical field is full of delicate items. Even a slight variation in conditions may spoil the product. Even a slightly mismatched amount of components can damage the whole combination. Medical pharmaceutical vaccine refrigerators are one such medical refrigeration equipment that can be used to elongate the life cycle of medicine and vaccines.
Benefits of Medical Refrigeration Systems for Vaccines
Medical pharmaceutical vaccine refrigerators are crucial for medical professionals as they offer a myriad of benefits in the storage and preservation of vaccines. Here are five key advantages of them:
Temperature control: One of the most obvious yet impactful purposes of medical refrigeration systems is to control temperature-optimized environments. These refrigerators design for precise temperature control and to ensure vaccines are stored at the optimal temperature to maintain their efficacy for a long time and prevent spoilage for a long time.
Accurate temperature monitoring: Medical refrigeration units are made with precise temperature control as well as monitoring capabilities. They come with built-in temperature monitoring systems and alarms to alert healthcare professionals timely if the temperature deviates from the desired range for a significant time, preventing damage to vaccines.
Compliance with regulatory standards: Often medical vaccines are required to be kept at a certain temperature during their lifecycle. Medical pharmaceutical vaccine refrigerators are designed to meet such regulatory standards, ensuring that vaccines are stored in accordance with guidelines set by vaccine manufacturers and health authorities.
Enhanced safety features: Medical refrigeration units not only help store the vaccines compactly while keeping within the favorable temperature range, but it also helps them keep safe from mild bumps and accidents. These refrigerators often include safety features like lockable doors and temperature loggers, ensuring the integrity and security of stored vaccines.
Reliable power backup: As mentioned above, temperature variation for any reason may affect the lifecycle of vaccines, even if it happens due to a power outage. Some models of medical pharmaceutical vaccine refrigerators come with power backup systems. These models include battery or generator support, ensuring that vaccines remain properly stored even during power outages This feature minimizes the risk of spoilage.

2023.06.09 10:51 The_Zoo_Exotics I’m at my limit with this job

For context, I work as a cook for Buffalo Wild Wings, I started back in late February early March. I (M26) have been verbally abused and harassed by my male coworkers “S” (27) and “B” (28). B is on suspension and isn’t coming back, but I need to vent so for now I’ll be talking about what “S” has been doing to me for the last few months.
Everyday for a month now when I walk into work and see “S” he greets me with “You wanna snort some coke,” or “You wanna do some blow,” and my answer has always been no. I’ve never wanted to do drugs, let alone at work. Other times he sexually harasses me by asking me if I would suck a cheesecake out of his ass, or says some other crap about violating me. “S” claims that he sexually harasses all of the male coworkers, and everyone laughs at it when he does it to me. He has never touched me in a sexual way at work, but the verbal abuse is enough for me to want to quit. The managers and other coworkers see it and they don’t do anything about it. They just laugh at me because they think it’s some joke or something. I’m honestly tired of it and no matter how much I say no, or tell him to stop, he just keeps going on about it. I don’t know what to do, but at this point, I don’t think there is anything I can do. My general manager, also “S”, but we’ll call him “ST” jokes around as well, but he never seems to join in on the jokes unless it’s at someone else’s expense.
I applied because I needed a job, and for a bit, I loved the atmosphere and how everyone generally got along, but now I dread going in tomorrow. I might just call out and deal with the consequences later.

2023.06.09 10:51 Ultimate_Overlord I Just Want to Be Allowed to Be Angry

I'm not patting myself on the back at all when I say this, because it's honestly the source of the problem, but I've always had a good handle over catching myself when it comes to emotions, especially anger. There is only one point in my teens-to-adulthood life where I have lashed out at someone in anger, like, shouted and whatnot. I express annoyance with people, sure, but never anger. I also just don't often feel very angry in an explosive way that would lend itself to me putting my foot in my mouth and starting an argument. I'm very good at understanding why people might do or say hurtful things, and give them benefit of the doubt. When I have an issue with something, I talk to people reasonably and in a level manner so we can all be constructive and go home better understood, because life's too short to be dramatic about things.
Sometimes though, things won't get solved by talking with the other parties. Sometimes, I just have to let myself feel things until they go away, and rationalize things in my head, listen to music to help me, etc.
But lately it's just not feeling like it's enough.
I feel deprived, honest to god. I see all the people in my life or not in my life who have their "moments" and say or do something they regret in a fit of anger. I see them potentially burn bridges because of their rash behavior, or shake their heads at themselves and go "man, what was I thinking?" And I feel like I want that, so badly. I want the freedom to be able to see red, and just finally say things without a filter geared towards productivity and maturity. It's not even that I lie or people please when I confront people (that doesn't solve anything), so I shouldn't feel like I've repressed myself or anything, but it's the fact that I've always had to think about the best way to frame my thoughts before I speak that frustrates me. I don't want to be the bigger person all the time. It's a lot of work. No amount of people saying I've got a good head on my shoulders or that I'm a good advice-giver is making me feel good about the fact that I'm just tired. I'm tired of having to do the "right thing." Because right now, and in other occasions, I'm angry. I want to be irrational, I want to say things that will stick with people. I want to be part of the problem instead of having to be so goddamn conscious of "oh, well, that hurt you growing up/in the past, so you've gotta break the cycle, y'know?" It feels unfair that I have to be aware. I just want to be a person who does whatever the hell they feel like on the spur of the moment, even if it's not a good thing to do. "Setting good examples" isn't rewarding, "being there for others" isn't rewarding. It doesn't feel like it's enough, but I keep reminding myself that the fallout of finally snapping at someone would always be more harm than it's worth. I try to pull myself out of my little pity party, and remind myself to be grown about this- I'm sure I truly care about not rocking the boat, 90% of the time, so it's not worth it to let a 10% take precedent.
So why do I feel such bone-deep frustration? I feel like I'm having a delayed teenage experience, haha...
Hope you're all having a good evening.

So, you can basically start to read at any chapter, no pre-read of the other chapters needed technically (other than maybe getting better descriptions of characters than: Adam Vir=human, Krill=antlike alien, Sunny=tall alien, Conn=telepathic alien). The numbers are (mostly) only for organization of posts and continuity.
OC Written by Charlie Stastarrfallknightrise,
Typed up and then posted here by me.
Proofreading and language check for some chapters by u/Finbar9800
Future Lore and fact check done by me.
Apparently, Krill did not check with law enforcement after the Rumors chapter…
Well shit…

Here is the link to the master-post.
The darkness around them was hot and stifling. Their breath had leached the freshness out of the crate hours ago, leaving them sitting in a stale muggy darkness. Sunny shifted in the near darkness, struggling to see with the single beam of meager light which filtered in from above.
Adam lay in her arms blacked out completely.
She let his upper body rest gently in her lower arms, while her upper arms searched through his blond hair –matted with dried blood– and across his scalp.
She swore she was going to kill the person who did this to him.
Didn't they know what a knock in the head could do to a human? Didn't they understand what a concussion meant?
He needed a doctor, he needed Krill, but the little physician wasn't with them now.
He was back on the Tesraki home planet with the ship.
And they were... well Sunny had no idea where they were.
It had all happened so fast, one moment they were walking through the streets, going through market vendor stalls and laughing about something stupid, and the next moment Adam was lying unconscious on the ground and her head was inside a bag.
She would have fought, but they threatened to hurt Adam if she did.
Perhaps if it had been some other person, she might have taken that chance, but she wasn't nearly willing enough to risk Adam for her own perceived vanity.
After the attack, they had quickly been carted off across the city and loaded into this crate. She had heard the sound of the docks and the roaring of engines. She had sat in here for hours as the ship passed in and then out of warp.
Wherever they were, they were miles away from home, with no one to come and same them.
And Adam was injured, likely concussed.
Worst of all is that she couldn't even see his eyes to check and make sure if he was ok or not. His breathing was relatively even, a slow expansion of his chest and ribs over and over and over again.
She adjusted herself, groaning softly as she attempted to stretch out her legs. Adam's body was dead weight in her hands as she moved him pulling him further onto her lap to where she could hold him with her right set of arms while examining his wound with the other two.
His head rested against her shoulder breath hot on her neck.
Good, she could make sure he was still alive that way.
The engine thrummed.
She had tried to break out of the box first thing of course, but that action had proven to be fruitless, as had screaming. The engine was much too loud. She had, of course, tried engineering her way out of the box, but without tools, space and with Adam's dead weight to work around, that had also been a fruitless option.
So, she sat in the dark and waited.
She was beginning to worry that Adam would never wake up when he finally began to stir.
Sunny sighed a deep sigh of relief.
"Adam. Adam, are you ok, can you hear me?"
For a horrible moment there was no answer, but then a groggy,
"Sunny... Where are we... Why can't I see?”
A hint of panic crept into his voice.
"Shh, you're ok we are just stuck in a crate, that's all."
"Oh that's good,"
He paused,
"Never thought I would say that about being stuck in a crate."
She sighed again in relief, glad to see that he was at least lucid and understood what was happening,
"Now hold on, what happened, and why do I have such a raging headache?”
She shifted slightly in her space as he adjusted himself.
The crate was small, so there wasn't really anywhere for him to go, so he just ended up resting more securely against her chest, head resting on her chest plate her lower arms wrapped around him to keep him in place.
"We were attacked, you were knocked out and I was threatened."
"And you didn't screw them up?"
"They were threatening to kill you. I only had so many options."
He grunted, and in the dark he sighed, turning his head so his cheek was brushing up against her,
"This has been a shit day."
That made her laugh. Leave it to Adam to make her laugh when their lives were in danger.
Nothing much they could do about the situation now, and they remained in darkness, curled up together under the roaring of the engine.
Both of them felt it when the ship came into atmosphere, growing more and more nervous as they felt their crate being shifted and moved. Their little sliver of light was completely gone now leaving them in complete darkness as they were jostled and jolted around inside the crate. Then there came voices, Tesraki, Drev, Burg, and another voice which was far less familiar to Sunny than any of the others.
She felt Adam go still in her arms.
He hissed, the sharp crack of the spat word hissing through the darkness.
Sunny didn't know much about that species. The only thing she knew for sure is that they had withdrawn from peace talks with the GA and were an outside entity. She knew they occasionally traded with the GA and that Adam had had some run-ins with them. Run-ins like human slave trade or… infant meat trade that gave him a serious hatred for their kind, which was uncharacteristic for his usual forgiving nature.
The crate jolted and rocked.
A distant thrumming filled the background, the lull of conversation, and then it went silent again.
The box jolted downwards.
"Here master, just as you requested."
"I assume you got a good specimen?"
Adam and Sunny leaned up against the walls of their crate trying to determine who or what was speaking.
"You will be most pleased with us master. Got you a real fine specimen we did, worth well over the asking prices. Will be the most exotic piece to your collection for sure."
There was a low sort of guttural rumble from the outside of the crate.
"I will be the judge of that. Open the crate."
There was some shuffling for a moment, a sharp snap and the sides of the box fell away. Sunny and Adam were forced to raise their hands against the light as bright purple and blue light assailed them from all directions. They blinked past the shade cast by their hands.
The room they stood in was strange.
They got the feeling that the open space was supposed to be some kind of meeting space or gathering room.
Perhaps even some sort of entertainment room with how large it was, two floors connected by wide arching ramps up either side of the wide room. The floor below them was a purplish sort of grey made even more so by the blue and purple lights from above.
Adam turned his head in a wide arc, his head raised towards the ceiling. Sunny followed his gaze, and was immediately horrified.
Overhead at least twenty cages had been suspended from the ceiling. Though most of them were either empty, three others were occupied.
Two sick, mournful looking humans and a bleached white skeleton.
"The fuck!?”
Adam turned his head, eyes narrowing towards the group that stood around them, and Sunny got her first good look at the Prodigum.
She was not pleased with what she saw.
It had to be the ugliest thing she ever saw, and that meant something with them knowing the Burg.
The creature was big, maybe a little taller than her.
It had a body sort of like a gorilla, if gorillas were absolutely hideous in every way.
Its back legs were short and stumpy, just one massive fleshy mass, holding up their incredible bulk. They had no neck to speak of, and their arms were absolutely massive, jutting ninety degrees from their shoulders and then ninety degrees again at the elbow. IF you were to have stretched out one of their arms it would almost have been one to two thirds’ times as tall as their own bodies.
Each arm was thicker than a man's waist, and instead of hands it had one long pointy spike.
When they walked, they walked on their wrists as if a human were to go to walk on their knuckles but have their wrist buckle leaving the spike to point back and up.
Its body was covered in an immense and pendulous collection of baggy folds which swung heavily from side to side as it moved.
There was no neck, and its large face was droopy, its horrific mouth a grotesque, sagging heap like a child was trying to melt a playdough smiley face in the microwave.
With two sets of eyes on either side of its grotesque head and the numbers spaghetti like protrusions, which dangled from its throat – writhing to and fro while also acting as the creature's hands – it was a grotesque and monstrous sight.
Sunny made a face. Adam grunted,
The aliens gnored them and kept speaking,
"And the Drev?"
"Consider her a bonus."
The big ugly creature grunted, expelling a burst of air from the two breathing tubes which sagged from either side of its neck, their ends opening and closing like the blowholes of a whale.
Adam shifted and stood unsteadily against Sunny's protests gripping the bars with white knuckled hands.
"You have no idea what you have just started, ugly!”
The Prodigum laughed, through it came out as wet gurgling snorts from its breathing tubes,
"Oh I know exactly what I have started… commander Vir."
Adam stepped back in shock, nearly tripping over Sunny in their tight confines.
The Prodigum leaned in close to the cage, the little spaghetti-like tentacles waving before the bars curling uncurling or wrapping themselves around cold steel.
Adam made a face.
"In fact, it was your presence which I requested personally."
He turned in his spot to look at the room around him, which Sunny was becoming to understand was far larger than she had originally assumed.
"I have many wealthy clients who don't settle for just anyone, commander. Your prestige will be a great selling point."
"What even is this place?"
"Many things, many things. It is a place of business, a place of frivolity, and a place where humans do what they are told."
His voice grew low and quiet. One of his large, spiked arms raised off the floor somewhat. The Spike brandished.
"And what exactly do you expect me to do for you?"
He asked, crossing his arms over his chest.
"Why, the only thing humans are good for… I want you to sing!”
This time both Adam and Sunny were dumbstruck,
"You want me to do what now?"
"Sing, commander. You do know what singing is, don't you?”
Adam shook his head,
"You have got to be fucking kidding me. That's it!? That's why you kidnapped one of the most –not to brag or anything– powerful men in the GA. The guy with the firepower of an entire human fleet behind him, and you brought me here to be your cage canary!? To sing you little songs!!??"
The Prodigum grunted,
"That is precisely what I expect you to do, commander."
Adam proceeded to laugh in his face,
"You have got to be kidding me. Not only is this possibly the stupidest thing I have ever heard of just in principle, but it is ALSO dumb because there are thousands of humans out there who can sing better than me. Sure, I can carry a tune, but I'm not Freddie mercury."
The Prodigum was not looking as bothered by the comments as he probably should have been. In fact, he almost seemed amused,
"This is not about your ABILITY to sing commander. Most nonhumans can't actually tell the difference between good and bad singing, they simply know it is something they cannot do. No, I didn't bring you here for your skill, I brought you here because of your importance. When my clients see you, they are going to understand what you represent... And that is my complete and total control, my absolute impunity when it comes to the law, and my ability to do whatever I want. You are a symbol of my power."
"Yeah, and you can suck a bag of dicks."
The Prodigum leaned closer,
"You will do what I want you to do."
A group of tentacles wriggled through the bars waving before their faces. Sunny saw it coming way before the Prodigum did, though he definitely should have seen it coming. The way the human's body tensed up, the way he grew still, the way his eyes drew to laser focus, the way that his knees bent and his hands curled at his sides.
And then he struck.
Like a cobra.
With one hand he reached out wrapping his fingers around a handful of the nasty wriggling tentacles before yanking hard.
The Prodigum screamed.
Sunny lunged forward to help all four of her arms shooting through the bars as Adam dug his fingers into the writhing tentacles.
There was an eruption of movement.
Adam craned his neck downwards, mouth open teeth poised to strike.
Everyone knew what a human bite meant.
And then there was an eruption of pain. Lightning coursed across her vision and Sunny found herself on the ground, legs twitching. She heard Adam yell, he was screaming through his teeth.
And then a dull thud.
The pain went away.
She looked over to find Adam sagging against the bars of the cage.
The Prodigum had retreated with his posse surrounding him…
He mewled with pain, a few of his face tentacles dripping blue onto the floor, others hanging limp and unusable.
The human began to laugh, despite the pain of the electric shock,
With anger in his expression, the Prodigum looked up,
"Secure the Drev."
Sunny struggled to her feet as both her and Adam realized what was happening.
Sunny yelled for Adam to duck, but he was too late, a loop slipped over his neck tightening and pulling him against the side of the cage.
He choked and gasped trying to force his fingers under the loop kicking and struggling as the door was thrown open and Sunny was electrocuted again, before a group of others piled atop her securing her arms and dragging her form the cage, which was then shut.
Adam was let go, staggering to his knees, hands clenched around his throat.
He choked and gasped.
"I am going to make this very clear for you human."
Sunny was hauled upwards by the back of her carapace and suspended in the air.
"Do what I wish, or the Drev dies.”
Sunny struggled against their arms, looking back towards the cage where Adam knelt.
She wished he would tell them to go to hell, but she could see almost immediately by the expression on his face and the pain in his single green eye that the Prodigum had done it.
He had found Adam's weakness.
He had found humanity's greatest trait and their greatest weakness.
Their lo…yalty.
And now they were in his power.

Intro post by me
OC-whole collection
Patreon of the author
Thanks for reading! As you saw in the title, this is a cross posted story written by starrfallknightrise and I'll just upload some of it here for you guys, if you are interested and want to read ahead, the original story-collection can be found on tumblr or wattpad to read for free. (link above this text under "OC:..." ) It is the Empyrean Iris story collection by starfallknightrise. Also, if you want to know more about the story collection i made an intro post about it, so feel free to check that out to see what other great characters to look forward to! (Link also above this text). I have no affiliations to the author; just thought I’d share some of the great stories you might enjoy a lot!
Obviously, I have Charlie’s permission to post this and for the people already knowing the stories, or starting to read them: If you follow the link and check out the story you will see some differences. I made some small (non-artistic) changes, mainly correcting writing mistakes, pronoun correction and some small additional info here and there of things which were not thought of/forgotten or even were added/changed in later stories (like the “USS->UNSC” prefix of Stabby, Chalar=/->Sunny etc). As well as some "biggemajor" changes in descriptions and info’s for the same stringency/continuity reason. That can be explained by the story collection being, well a story collection at the start with many standalone-stories just starring the same people, but later on it gets more to a stringent storyline with backstories and throwbacks. (For example Adam Vir has some HEAVY scars over his body, following his bones, which were not really talked about up till half the collection, where it says it covers his whole body and you find out via backflash that he had them the whole time and how he got them, they just weren't mentioned before. However, I would think a doctor would at least see these scars before that, especially since he gets analyzed, treated and goes shirtless/in T-shirts in some stories). So TLDR: Writing and some descriptions are slightly changed, with full OK from the author, since he himself did not bother to correct these things before.

2023.06.09 10:50 not_Epic619 How to get an internship/experience if you're from a sub rural state?

Hey devs sorry to bother you,I'm a 2nd year cs undergrad in Shillong ~(a subrural state). I know after graduation i need to have some experience in internships or bootcamps to land even a job in a tier 3 company. Problem is that my state just sucks. There's not even probably a single good company for getting an intern and even there was one , the discrimination between the tribals and the general hits the worst here. So I've been trying to get an internship online through Linkedin,Indeed and Y combinator but no avail yet. I'm doinig some contract freelancing so I don't mind even if the internships pays low. It's already been so bad in this year in the tech industry and while I graduate I don't think the situation gonna be better let alone be worse I think.So can I know your thoughts on how should I go on getting one ?Any advice will help! Thanks for your time.

2023.06.09 10:49 MaffinLP [FORHIRE] Game Programmer with C# (Unity)

Hello everyone!
Im looking for work as a Game Developer.
When I was 14 years old I started to learn (actual) coding myself. In middle school we learned the basics in scratch, but even though I chose a technical school never moved further along, so I took it upon myself to learn the art of code.
In the beginning I was watching tutorials and like many others didnt understand anything, but my spirit persisted so I kept on teaching myself until I started a technical high school that taught programming with the languages C/C++, python, and a bit of arduino, which I absolved with a great success due to my prior knowledge.
During my school time I didnt pause teaching myself more skills with Unity/C# and a little with WinForms/.NET. By the end my knowledge was proficient enough to develop prototypes, but I lacked the experience to finish a game, I hadnt learned about OOP at that point either.
However that would change with my first job that I started right after school, where I went the "fake it till you make it" route, pretended to know everything, and learned the essentials of OOP a week prior to the beginning. I held that job for about a year before quitting due to location restrictions. In the first 6 months of that job I learned so much to confidentally call myself a mid-level engineer, and not a junior anymore. I knew my way around objects, when to use it and when not to.
Shortly after I started work at a company that made Microsoft Office 365 Add-Ins (mainly for dynamics). The job started with me working on a side project, developing the logic for a fingerprint sensor that would soon replace the stamp card at the entreance. After transitioning to making Add-Ins I realized that wasnt what I wanted and therefor quit.
Since then I am looking for freelance work.
All the while that happened I kept on honing my unity skills, now having a total of 8 years of C#/Unity experience and 2 additional years of c#/.Net experience.
The companies I worked for are all austrian and called:
- InfPro IT solutions GmbH
- PTM EDV Solutions GmbH
- NETAutomation GmbH
- Selmo Technology GmbH
My projects can be found on steam, and on
As well as this clicker project I have been doing freelance work on:\_BUTTON/
You can contact me preferably on Discord:
If you want to use another DM me on reddit or send an e-mail to [email protected]
Currently I charge 25€ (note the currency) per hour. Payments are only accepted with PayPal.

The remnants of the battlefield will stand as a testament to your tenacity and unwavering commitment. The air is charged with anticipation, as if the very elements themselves recognize your victory.

With the portals restored, you must strengthen their defenses, deploying mods imbued with ancient knowledge.

The mysteries of XXXX XXXX, have been unraveled, its secrets brought to light.

2023.06.09 10:48 MaffinLP [FOR HIRE] Game Programmer with C# (Unity)

During my school time I didnt pause teaching myself more skills with Unity/C# and a little with WinForms/.NET. By the end my knowledge was proficient enough to develop prototypes, but I lacked the experience to finish a game, I hadnt learned about OOP at that point either.
However that would change with my first job that I started right after school, where I went the "fake it till you make it" route, pretended to know everything, and learned the essentials of OOP a week prior to the beginning. I held that job for about a year before quitting due to location restrictions. In the first 6 months of that job I learned so much to confidentally call myself a mid-level engineer, and not a junior anymore. I knew my way around objects, when to use it and when not to.
Shortly after I started work at a company that made Microsoft Office 365 Add-Ins (mainly for dynamics). The job started with me working on a side project, developing the logic for a fingerprint sensor that would soon replace the stamp card at the entreance. After transitioning to making Add-Ins I realized that wasnt what I wanted and therefor quit.
Since then I am looking for freelance work.
All the while that happened I kept on honing my unity skills, now having a total of 8 years of C#/Unity experience and 2 additional years of c#/.Net experience.
The companies I worked for are all austrian and called:
- InfPro IT solutions GmbH
- PTM EDV Solutions GmbH
- NETAutomation GmbH
- Selmo Technology GmbH
My projects can be found on steam, and on
As well as this clicker project I have been doing freelance work on:\_BUTTON/

2023.06.09 10:48 A5hv31lt Hanabi's Current Passive

I've been thinking about this for a while now but what do you think about Hanabi's current passive?
For context, her passive can see you even if you're in a bush, it's a little annoying especially at the early game.
Now I don't want to come off as whining since I'm also an MM main and I know the ups and downs of that hero .
So what do you think? Is that fair? Or is it not, considering the point of bushes?

2023.06.09 10:47 StrawbrieDinoway 3.5years old boy got kicked twice on the back by an adult autistic male(18y/o)

My husband brought our son(3.5y/o) to the park about 2.5mons ago to the park. By his story, a couple of kids were running towards the sand area where our son was playing. Without any idea what was going on and our son was playing by himself, a young adult male(18yo) came running towards our son and kicked him on the back. Our son rolled over, could not react or process as to what was going on but the young adult male kicked him again. My husband came rushing and took my son and turned his back to the male while still continuing to kick them(husband and son). This time my son was already crying. Eventually, the parents of the young adult male came apologizing for their son saying he has a condition(autism). My husband called the police to file to incident. I am nurse and I checked my son for injuries after they got home and did not see anything worth going to the ER or our pedia. I made sure of that.
Moving a few weeks forward, mind you, my son, is a very outgoing boy. He says Hi to almost every person he sees, very friendly. After a few weeks of the incident, we noticed that our son became so cautious of his surroundings and easily gets agitated if he sees a big guy and we totally noticed the huge change in our son’s personality. Tonight, 86 days after the incident, my son remembered what happened to him and he described it clearly to me. I felt so crushed. I cannot sleep. I want to do something for him. All I can think of now is to make sure I tell him that Mom and Dad are always here to keep him safe and that he is a strong and brave boy.
Has anybody experienced this?
I am thinking of taking him to therapy but I would like to ask a parent’s perspective first. We only have one child. I am also thinking of bringing him back to our country because he has a lot of playmates there where he gets distracted and can feel safe.
Please advise. Thankyou.

2023.06.09 10:47 SecAbove Cisco ISE is future proof zero trust product or dragging down zero thrust?

Hello, can you please share your thoughts about Cisco ISE and overall concept of trying to secure LAN ports with 802.1X in relation to Zero Trust?
Zero Trust reduces the perimeter's role as a centralized policy enforcement point . Is it still worth retaining NAC or this is old world tech and it is better to consider LAN as inherently insecure and treat it appropriately.
Just having debate about Cisco ISE future for the large and small enterprises. Sustaining Cisco ISE 802.1x and SGT (Security Group Tag) seems like to much effort.

2023.06.09 10:47 Wrest216 Question about trans and gay community

I see a bunch of "Lets Seperate the LGB From the TQ" things, saying only (trigger warning) Trans people groom kids" And its obviously NOT true. I THINK its prob AstroTurf asshole right wingers trying to split people up so they can destroy them. How do I argue against this? I try to point out that , esp to people who claim to be gay, REALLY, do you think they didnt try to do this exact same thing to you 20 YEars ago? To the right wing, you are considered all the same! We must unite or FALL. Im bi myself, but i consider ALL LGBQTIA+ to be on the same footing. Am I wrong? Am I out of touch? Im feeling very sad about this. I could use somebody to talk to. I have trans niece. I just want her to be safe. I feel SO bad for all the pushback the trans community is going through.

2023.06.09 10:47 TheElvenAngelCatboy Forests and Fields: prototype is complete!

Forests and Fields: prototype is complete!
So a couple of days ago, I posted on here about a simple game idea I had; it's kind of like a mix of Go and Carcassonne.
The rules (so far) are simple: draw a tile from a bag, or play one of two tiles with a circle on it. Your tile must connect like edges of a color. At the end of the round, whoever makes the biggest completed shape gets points per square it occupies.
During playtesting, we found the game has an interesting property akin to the concept of Life and Death in Go: you can play tiles such that in order for a territory to be completed, you need to draw a specific tile, or else it won't score.
Here's some pictures of the prototype in action. I think it looks really nice, given I only had the idea for the game about a week ago.
If anyone has questions or advice, please, don't hesitate to ask. If we can get it cleaned up, I might even get to publish the game, for real, which would be awesome. :D

2023.06.09 10:47 baltimore-aureole Thank you – Trump indicted! But were these actually the right charges? And look at the effing delay and cost!!

Thank you – Trump indicted! But were these actually the right charges? And look at the effing delay and cost!!
Photo Above - News Chopper 7 footage of the "surprise" FBI raid on Mar-a-Largo last year. Not shown - any progress on the Georgia election interference investigation.
Trump indicted in Mar-a-Lago classified documents investigation - The Washington Post
Finally!! Trump is indicted for something real. Not just a civil complaint about groping. Or being a venal example of American politics at its most offensive. Those classified docs wallpapering Trump's Mar-a-Largo mansion are getting their day in court. At least 7 of them, apparently. See link above (Warning - this is a free link to a Washington Post article – not a CNN or Fox video, in case you're disinclined to read).
There are probably grounds for exultation here. And I promise I will raise a champagne glass. But first, a few of those inevitable, pesky questions. And apologies for my poor previous predictions.
I HAD been conjecturing - more than once – that all these several criminal prosecutions were being “slow walked” by their respective Attorney Generals and Special Prosecutors. Delayed to ensure an indictment 30 seconds after Trump inevitably won the Republican Presidential Nomination next summer. Yesterdays indictment probably HELPS the republican party, and the DOJ should be commended for not abusing the legal system to play games with the presidential nomination process.
But still . . . there were ELEVEN THOUSAND classified documents? And nearly a year in the hands of the DOJ? How long does it take to confirm that seven of these docs were actually classified? Apparently each one said so at the very top. Maybe a thousand people were needed to go through all those boxes and find which ones were the most egregious? I expect that now these docs must be produced as evidence in court. And we will finally get to see which ones Trump stole. Or at least the doc titles. That info has never been released. But still – 11,000 classified docs, reviewed for 11 months? This is like evaluating a cockroach infestation for a year before finally buying a roach motel.. At a cost of millions. In any case, we are all going to LOVE seeing which 7 documents got nominated for Oscars here.
Biden's own top secret doc - uncovered in private residences/garages/consulting offices will probably not be nominated. There were similar docs at Mike Pence's house. And a few other career politicians. Hillary Clinton, notably, escaped prosecution when government docs were found on democrat election laptops in 2016. Trump's apologists will try to create an equivalence. Not having seen ANY of the Trump or Biden documents in question, it would be wrong to say they ARE equivalent. Or to deny that they are. Point/Counterpoint – Yes, Trump had waaay more docs. Counterpoint – Biden's documents were found abandoned in bizarre, insecure places like his garage, and empty offices at a Democrat consulting firm. This is the debate pundits worried about as soon as the Biden docs surfaced. "How can we charge one guy but not the other?" Well, the DOJ apparently found a way. That's what having hundreds of staff attorneys and a full year to debate the situation will get you.
Again – let me reiterate – the DOJ charges against Trump are (almost) timely and seem entirely appropriate. People suspected of crimes should get their day in court - instead of becoming sensational media fodder for years. The US constitution guarantees the accused a swift and fair trial.
Now here's my second question: (but no apology) Why have these docs, and NOT the Georgia election interference, become the 7-layer beefy burrito? I can't think of a single more egregious example of undermining elections in American history. A politician making repeated demands to “find” votes that were never cast. This is without doubt a crime. There is indisputable evidence, in recordings emails and other docs. Beyond any credible defense. Trump's attorneys can't concoct a claim these calls were an oversight, or an attempt to help prepare for a post-presidential tell all book.
Please – let's not get allow the "yes but" crowd to hijack this post into OTHER examples of election fraud. The dead habitually voting in Chicago. Gerrymandered districts, which a bipartisan supreme court majority just declared illegal. Voting without ID, by mail AND in person, months in advance, and failing to ensure a proper chain of custody on the ballots until counting day. Those are certainly an assault on election integrity too. But not nearly so well documented as the Trump/Georgia thing.
As an observer of history and politics, I would have expected the Geogia election fraud to bubble to the top, instead of umpteen thousand documents mishandled by who knows how many politicians. But that's just my old school allegiance to free and fair elections raising its hand.
Years of investigations. Thousands of attorneys. Millions of dollars. And finally, an indictment on 7 classified docs. Probably a hilariously bad cost/benefit equation, but the cause of justice has at least been advanced another step.
I just hope this means we can finally expect action in the four other ongoing investigations, where prosecutors have been too timid to either indict or dismiss.
Do your damn jobs and stop wasting our tax dollars walking around in circles . . ..
