2023.03.20 21:10 Alain_Durwoden 1000 miles with my RR

I am happy to report that the lust I felt when this bike was revealed has turned in to an all-consuming love. I went in knowing this was a completely irresponsible purchase considering I daily, but I've never listened to sense when it came to motorcycles anyway. At least as far as "what about when it's cold?" or "how will you carry groceries?" is concerned. I bought good gear and have my groceries delivered. Problem solved.
1000 miles of break in was tough. I've never owned a new vehicle before, and considering how much she cost (regardless of the deal I got) I made sure to follow the break-in period to a T, save for the last fifty or so miles. The attention I had to pay toward keeping the revs down, making sure to switch gears regularly -- there's a lot of highway driving to be done to get anywhere fun -- really cut in to just riding my bike.
I set out yesterday with ~960 miles on the odometer, accumulated as quickly as I could through a month of horrendous weather, a cramped work schedule, and a packed social calendar. I don't mind the cold and the rain, but I wasn't about to hop on a bike during a rain shower before I was used to it.
Hopping on yesterday in the gorgeous noon sun and riding in to a crisp 50F wind, I just couldn't help myself any more. I'd been on these roads a lot. I knew what to expect and where, and traffic wasn't too bad. I had gotten used to the bike; the lines it would take, when the ABS would kick in, the feel of the throttle, the bite of the clutch. It finally felt like an extension of myself as opposed to a machine I was on, more than any of the dozen or so bikes I've had in the past. It was time to throw the manual out and let it rip.
It probably goes without saying, but sitting in the power band and letting Lady breath turned her in to a completely different bike than what I had for the first 960mi. She is as poised at 50mph as she is at 120, and there were many, many times when I looked down and noticed I had doubled or even tripled the legal speed limit. If it weren't for a slight bobbling of my head and the fact that everyone else had come to a stop, I don't think I'd have noticed. A few short stops in the gears I was clicking down to brought her quickly back to what the Man considers reasonable.
Regardless of how fast she was going, I never once felt like it was too much for me to handle. It's there when I want it. It hangs back when I don't. I have never been more confident on a motorcycle. She's there to take care of me and make sure I enjoy life. She wasn't going to take me to a third location and Irish exit.
That being said, five years ago I'd have killed myself on this bike. Something about being in the mindset of, "actually, let's pay our taxes this year" and "I should renew my license before it expires" evidently lends itself to the kind of responsibility and respect a bike like this deserves. While none of my accidents have been directly my fault, now that I'm making payments and am older you can be sure I'm watching (read: staring at) everyone turning on red or crossing a median, and looking both ways when crossing an intersection -- green be damned. I'm not going to be t-boned a fourth time.
Traction control kicked in for the first time, stopping my heart from leaping out of my chest and my hands from doing that thing they seemed to naturally do the last time I got over my head. I'm glad it's there, because even though I know what I'm supposed to do when a wheel slips it has still never entered in to conscious thought and I'd rather not bank on it.
I've finally gotten used to the ergonomics, and gas station to gas station I am as comfortable as I've been on anything save maybe one of my Sprints. Current average MPG sits at 33.6.
The last cruiser I had, a V1500A, always cramped my lower back up -- I have to sit on a bike, not in one -- and the RR keeps my back, legs, and wrists exactly where they like to be. For reference, I'm 6'2" and somewhere around 200lb. Now I just need bigger gloves, 3X is still jamming my middle finger in to it's knuckle so that kind hurts. If anyone has an recommendations there, I'd appreciate it. Two trips to Cycle Gear and I’m still coming up short.
Quick shifts up, even from first, were buttery. If the engine is moving at the speed it likes, it doesn't seem to care what you do with it. Quickshifts down were equally smooth. Even without, this might be the easiest bike I've ever rev-matched.
My one minor quibble is the mirrors; roughly 60% of them is taken up by my forearm -- but twenty minutes of fiddling with the stalks and mirrors plus a wee blind spot mirror has solved that issue. I'm still thinking bar-ends, if I can find the right adapter; just seems more fitting, aesthetically.
I don't know that this "review" was needed and I'm sure I'm speaking in to the void, but I needed to get it out somewhere. I got off my bike yesterday feeling like I had just blown a fat rail or met my girlfriend all over again -- wired in, ultra focused, absolutely in love with the world, and ready for another hit.

2023.03.20 21:09 Puzzleheaded_Ice9636 Hard water is the only thing preventing me from moving back to Los Angeles

After the pandemic started and everyone went remote, I moved out of LA. I lived there for almost 10 years.
I'm surprised I lasted this long given how horrible hard water in LA is. Dry skin, dry scalp, dandruff, skin rashes, the fact that you cannot rinse properly made me smell because you never really cleaned yourself, the list goes on. It was absolutely HORRIBLE. And to top it off, the dry weather + even drier air when in an AC'd room, my god. So awful.
Yes, I can always get a water softener, but for me to do that, I need to buy either a house or a townhouse that has access to a water heater. You cannot install a water softener in a condo. And I don't have a million + dollars to buy a townhouse or house anywhere near any decent area (mainly the west side).
I could rent anywhere I want in LA but then I gotta deal with hard water.
How do you people cope with such poor quality water? to make matters worse, I hear water softeners are banned in LA. are you telling me people who buy 50 million dollar mansions are bathing in disgusting hard water? LOL

2023.03.20 21:08 driftwood-and-waves Is it a rash? Is it an allergic reaction? Is it stress? Who knows!

Moms I'm so frustrated and upset for my daughter. She's 12, we moved at the end of last year so she started a new school with like 6 weeks to go. This is the first big move she can remember and the first time she's gone to a school where she knows nobody.
Mid last year she started licking her lips and they got all red around them, you know kind of like a clown lip. Got some PawPaw, and she stopped licking her lips and it started getting better It was almost gone and she got a cold and it came back again. And it hasn't left. We've tried PawPaw, Vitiman A, Anti-fungal cream, Doxicyclone (or however you spell it), anti- histimenes and QV lip balm (lip balm with a PawPaw like texture but a different base).
She's very good at just taking/doing all the things and just keeping on going, but she's 12, nearly 13. There's all the emotions and social anxiety that go with being that age and not really having close friends at the moment. And she just came to me sobbing this morning because she just wants it to go away. Everyone has met her with 'weird lips' and she is just done.
And tbh I don't blame her. We were referred to a Dermatologist but they were private and $300 for the initial appointment. Yeah no and insurance won't cover that and all the ongoing costs. We have another doctor's appointment on Friday (thank goodness she's still a child and is free) and I'm going to push for a referral through the public system for a specialist visit and that they take some sort of swab or scraping of around her lips cause I just don't know what else it could be.
It's dry and stiff and not red when she wakes up and then just gets red as she goes about her day. It's also itchy. We do have a cat with long hair that only lets our daughter pet her and she does hug her and smooth her face right up to her which I have mentioned before but the doctor has dismissed it as it didn't start as an allergic reaction, and has continued even as we have moved regions.
I know it's not life threatening or major I just feel upset for her, and was hoping the collective Mom wisdom may have some more ideas I can try/suggest to the doctor as we wait to be seen by a specialist.
(Not in America).

2023.03.20 21:08 Schoonsy From zero to decent sales in six months: a reflection (and could use some advice for moving forward)

Hi all. I launched my niche YA fantasy series last year, and have made some good progress. I thought it would be useful for me to reflect on the process and also get some feedback about where I might go from here.
Sep 2022 - March 2023 Overview: Three YA fantasy novels in a series + a prequel published on KDP Units Ordered: 760 (ebook, paperback, and hardcover - mostly ebooks) KDP Royalties: Approx. $1400 Direct Ad Spend: Approx $1100
I spent the ~$1100 on advertising between Facebook and Amazon ads. I was losing money at first but I think I'm finally getting close to a profit zone this year. There are other expenses I've racked up like MailChimp and Squarespace and ISBNs.
The ROI is really difficult for me to calculate. For example Amazon ads says I spent $600+ lifetime on ads, but only made $80 of sales. But I know many people seem to have went on to buy book two and three or the prequel in the series. It makes it nearly impossible for me to figure out if those sales are coming from Amazon or Facebook ads, so I'm left wondering how to prioritize my ad spend.
Basically what I did was set up a series website (not much more than a landing page, used Squarespace and it was very simple) with a pop-up that says you can sign up with your e-mail address to get the first book for free. Then I used Facebook ads to direct people to the website, which was driving 100-200 e-mail signups per week when I was at peak spending. I figured it was a cost of about $.40-.50 per e-mail signup, which I think is pretty decent. Then I use a MailChimp automation to walk readers through the series.
I'm using really specific targeting to try to market to folks who have read similar authors/series that the books are inspired by. I also tried some e-mail blasts like Fussy Librarian which seemed to urge a spike in sales.
I guess I'm just not sure where to go from here. The margins seem razor thin, and I sort of feel like a crazy gambler sometimes, like "Oh, I'll just throw a little more money at advertising and maybe I'll make some more sales and see the results I want!"
Any advice for moving past this area of treading water, making decent sales but not really making a profit, to push things in the right direction?

2023.03.20 21:07 SalernoXbox Tarpon / Snook Fishing at night VS during the day?

My cousins and I are coming to Florida to experience the fisherman's dream. Where we're from all we have are our lakes for tournament fishing for bass, pike, and walleye. We have no idea what to expect but we just want to have an unforgettable experience.
We were looking at inshore vs offshore fishing and I was told from a few charter captains that inshore is more fun as you get more action with casting and retrieving. Considering we only booked a 4 hr trip, we decided on the Tarpon/Snook charter over the offshore charter - If anyone feels the offshore will be a better time please do share it with me, as we are newbies when it comes to ocean fishing.
My most important question is; should we do our charter first thing in the morning? Or at night? The captain told me that night fishing produces more action, while another captain told me bright and early in the mroning is the way to go. My uncle who has been deep sea fishing told me he would reccomend during the day to get the full experience, what do you guys think?
We're kind of going into this one blind, everywhere I research it all seems to look amazing, Florida fishing just looks so surreal. We will also be fishing the canals near the house, but we are so excited for this charter, and we want to have the very best experience possible. Unfortunately I don't think we can afford to do both inshore and offshore during this trip, so we want to pick whatever is best and come back in the near future to try the other

Thank you very much in advance for any advice or help :)

2023.03.20 21:07 ProPatria92 [220306] Santander Performing Arts Center concert in Reading, PA. Thoughts/review on concert, Meet & Greet, venue switch, etc.

I did a detailed writeup on my very first concert experience last year which was seeing Dreamcatcher's Apocalypse: Save Us concert in Reading and I got a positive response so I wanted to do it again for this concert. Hopefully this will help future Insomnia going to their first Dreamcatcher concert that are anxious about what to expect. Writing all this down is also a nice way for me to look back on the experience in the future. This is gonna' be another long read, don't think I can just TL;DR it so feel free to skip around to specific sections if you like. If you want to check out my previous concert writeup you can find it here:
I don't think there is too much to say here, Ticketmaster is already garbage about scalping bots and they continue to show their incompetence with this fuck up. It caused myself a good amount of anxiety like everyone else. I decided to wait till the day of the concert to see if they'd send the extra email with my printable ticket. Well that never happened, so I was debating calling Ticketmaster or just risk trying to pick them up at Will Call. That's when I saw people suggesting to make a separate new Ticketmaster account to transfer my tickets to. Lo and behold, it worked! Seriously, shout out to those suggesting that and whoever figured it out, real life saver! The only silver lining was that my seating got bumped all the way up front (third row specifically) smack dab in the center. So I can't complain too much but it sucks to everyone that got bumped out to much worse seating.
Concert Prep
Since attending the last Dreamcatcher concert in July, which was my very first ever concert experience, I've since seen Kard in Atlanta and Pixy, AleXa, and Rolling Quartz at Otakon in D.C. Not a veteran by any means but I've got a bit more experience going now. I work night shifts during the week so my sleep schedule is usually trash trying to readjust to days over the weekend. I woke up on the day of the concert at 3am and began doing some prep work. Charging my lightstick and battery brick (for charging phones), getting my ticket sorted, checking where I want to park once I get there, etc. I bought some equipment to attach my phone to mongmonie so I can record parts of the concert while keeping another hand free if needed. My original plan was to use all my lightstick extensions and use it as a sort of monopod setup for recording the whole concert. A few things made me change my mind, the first was that I couldn't find a clear answer on if extensions would be allowed at the concert, then there was the fact that my seat got changed and I felt like I'd be blocking people's view with it (plus I'd have to break it down every time we had to sit). It would've been a more ideal setup in a PIT area in the corner where I wouldn't be blocking people. I had planned on using a completely separate phone to record the whole concert so I cleared up a bunch of memory on it, but in the process managed to brick my phone 😒. So I had to resort to using my primary phone. Anyway, I felt like I somehow spent 10hrs. doing concert prep, not sure how lol. It was time to finally head out. It's only an hour and a half drive for me, think I left the house around 2:30ish in the afternoon.
Arrival in Reading
I arrived in Reading around 4pm. Reading Parking Authority recently switched to gateless parking which I've never used before. I downloaded the ParkMobile app before I left. When I got there it only let me pay for a 30min. increment on the app, so I used that time to get a bite to eat since I hadn't eaten anything all morning. Once I got back to the parking garage I noticed the little kiosk where you can pay for the full day, so that's what I did. After that I walked down the street to the venue so I could grab my VVIP bracelet which only took less than 5 minutes since there wasn't a huge line for it at the time. I wanted to chill in the short line forming outside the venue and chat up some Insomnia but decided I should probably go back to my car and get some rest since I had been up since 3am (shoutout to the Insomnia with the same Seven Spirits hoodie that I had who said hi to me on the way back though). After getting a bit of rest I went to go line up at the venue, the weather was a really nice mild day (55℉/13℃) with thankfully no rain like last time! There were so many nice Insomnia handing out banners and freebies in line. One was handing photocards/polaroids and asked me my bias, said I couldn't choose so just give me a random one, when I opened it up it was a choccy milk Gahyeon polaroid! Even if it wasn't official I got so hyped seeing that, haha. Someone else was handing out some cute DC anime stickers, this time I specifically chose Dami since there were only two of those left (person behind me snatched the last one). I signed the Dreamcatcher Reason flag while in line, it's super unfortunate they couldn't end up giving it to the girls! The line started moving around 6pm and moved pretty quickly, I was in the doors past security by 6:15pm.
Santander Performing Arts Center Venue review
I grabbed a Blue Moon and waited in the merch line. This venue was pretty small so they only had one spot to setup the merch table. The line was super long and wrapped around the entire venue starting on the first floor and leading up to the merch table on the second floor. The line moved at a decent pace considering how much it zig-zag'd around the place, shout out to the staff that were straight up sprinting around the line making sure to keep it orderly and moving it around so people didn't have problems accessing the rest of the venue. I got my merch by 7pmish so I waited in line for maybe 40min. There isn't too much to say about the venue itself, you can pretty much see the whole lobby in that pic I posted while waiting in line. There were easy to find bathrooms on a level lower than the ground floor, there were big signs to point you in the direction of each seating section and staff were great about helping people find there correct seats. For some reason the staff here felt even more proactive with helping everyone than the Santander Arena (though everyone there was also very friendly and helpful). I got seated at 7:05pm and the first thing I noticed was how cramped the seating was. Sitting down my shoulders were touching the shoulders of the people sitting to both sides of me, I feel like plane seating didn't feel as cramped. Once I got seated, the Insomnia next to me noticed my camera setup to record the concert and we had a nice conversation about photography and the gear we each use. Also talked about the messed up ticket situation with the venue change. One of my goals was to talk to more Insomnia this time around so thank you to the dude that chatted me up as I'm terrible at starting conversations myself but once I'm in it I could talk forever, haha.
The Concert
Once again, I noticed everyone's fits being on point at the concert. So many people with cool outfits, custom clothes, some people were wearing outfits that matched certain Dreamcatcher stage outfits, etc. Shout out to the bunny costume guy hyping everyone up before the concert! One thing I might've messed up on was footwear, whenever standing and jumping I could feel my feet killing me. I'm used to standing all day at work in these shoes, so I think it was the jumping up and down that really did it for me, not as comfortable as the UltraBoosts I wore last concert. Anyway, it was easy enough to ignore since the concert was so awesome! I was practically front row, which I never thought I'd get a chance to do. I'm really short for a guy, so I always worried about not getting a good enough spot in the PIT to see over people. Most people in front of me were taller than me but it wasn't a huge issue for the most part. The members entered and the hype begun, seriously never thought I'd get to be this close to them! One of my slight complaints from the last concert was that I am a bit nearsighted and it was hard to make out the members faces from where I was seated (although I know them well enough to pick them out on their gait alone). Now it was like seeing them in glorious 8k, and they all looked gorgeous! The setlist was so good, finally #justiceforWHAT! Plus getting to see the 'YOU AND I' choreo complete with props and Dami's awesome staff spinning! Everyone sounded so good and I was surprised that the acoustics sounded really good in such a small place not really designed for the type of music being played. Even during the songs with choreo you could here each member through the backing track at least a few times here and there. Like last time, the members I noticed really punching through the backing track the most were Siyeon and Dami. You can tell Dami goes all in on her raps at these concerts, to the point of bending over like 70° in order to really belt them out with as much power as possible. Also, OH MY GOD 'Reason' went as hard as I hoped it would live. They are pushing their vocals so hard during that song and the "woah" chanting parts get everyone so hyped. It was a fantastic idea to have the encore be all three fan songs. Celebrating Dami's birthday was so fun! Sua announcing herself as Dami's B-day present and her just ignoring it was hilarious, also Sua giving Dami the rights to being the Queen™ of Dreamcatcher while celebrating her birthday had me dying. I don't remember what song it happened during but at one point I'm pretty sure Yoohyeon's timing was off in one of the choreos and she completely bumped into another member (think it might have been Gahyeon but I don't recall) it was really cute as she quickly brushed it off with a smile. I thought I had recorded this part but can't find it so now I'm gonna' have to check other fancams to make sure I'm not going crazy, lol. During the last goodbye talks, Gahyeon cried saying she wasn't feeling well and hoped that it didn't show in her performing (it didn't, she did great!) and other members were tearing up too. It honestly feels so heartwarming as a fan getting to see Dreamcatcher's sincerity in their faces and words up close and personal, I'm surprised I didn't cry myself. Jiu especially goes the extra mile with her genuine facial expressions that show gratitude on the deepest levels. Another thing I loved about Jiu was her crowd control abilities, especially when it came to getting everybody to wave their lightsticks in synchronicity. Speaking of the crowd, I was pretty disappointed by the shrieking banshees that yelled over the members when they were talking. It's honestly super rude and makes the fandom look bad, it sucks that there isn't much you can do about it but to try and tell people near you to be quiet. You could see Dami was visibly annoyed by it and continued to make a shushing gesture at the crowd while pointing at the member currently talking. It doesn't help that the members also enabled the behavior by responding to a few people yelling things to them so that lead to others trying to grab their attention, it seriously got out of hand. Other than that slightly souring the experience, I still had a wonderful time. I will end this section by mentioning the only member I have yet to talk about here and I will will simply leave it with this; Handong's orange hair omfg?! 👨🏼‍🍳💋
Meet & Greet, Hi-Touch + Group Photo
After the concert ended, everyone started to line up for the VIP and VVIP M&G event. They lined up the VIP first since they were just doing the hi-touch. The VVIP participants were all seated and wherever you sat was basically the order they were going to have you go in with each row of seats being a section for the group photos, this way anyone in groups that wanted to stick together for it could figure out their order beforehand. Staff was great at giving everyone instructions and getting everything in order as fast as possible. I was so exhausted after the concert with running on little sleep that I just about snoozed off while sitting and waiting my turn. A weird thing I noticed was that I was seated towards the back of the venue and the seating seemed to be spaced out a bit better than where I sat for the concert. Anyway, it was my sections turn for the hi-touch. I kind of knew it was going to go by too fast to even get out anything meaningful so I tried to to be anxious about what I was going to say. The line moved so fast that when I got to the members I barely got to say "hi [member's name]!" in fact I remember getting to Sua and I think Siyeon was right before her and I called her Shua by accident cuz' I was trying to nail saying She-yeon previously, I felt so stupid but it is what it is, I'm laughing at it now looking back on it 😂. I also remember Jiu was first in line and I realized I gave her a pretty hard high five and ended up toning it down with each member till I got to Dami last and barely touched her hand. It was over as fast as it started, it went exactly how I thought it would but still left me a little disappointed. That was made up for with the group photo. As I waited back in line for the group photo, and was slowly approaching the line seemed to stop for a bit longer than it was before. It seemed that there was a group way ahead that didn't want to be separated for the group photo so they were looking for a single person to fill in the last spot. I stepped up and volunteered so we could get the line moving again. The staff were appreciative since they were on a time crunch, the people in line were happy to not get separated, and I got to skip like 30 people so win-win for everyone. That wasn't the best part though. Since the members were also waiting for a minute or two they all had their direction focused on the last person waiting to come up the stairs and that was me! Jiu gave me a very warm and cheery "hi!" as she was closest and was who I was going to sit in front of, needless to say my heart melted and I gave her an equally ecstatic "hello!" right back. I was going to ask her to do like a heart or something with me but since they were waiting I didn't want to hold them up any longer and decided to just quickly get seated so they could take the photos. Photo only took a sec and they we got up to let the next group in. I was the last person in line so I kinda' got selfish and took my time saying a few things to the members as we left. I got to look each one in the eyes and tell them what a great performance they put on, how cool they are, etc. Also told Gahyeon to feel better, and Dami was last so I got to personally wish her a happy birthday as well! Honestly made the VVIP package super worth it. I grabbed my VVIP merch on the way out and left the venue feeling great. The temperature had dropped quite a bit but it honestly felt really nice having the cool air hit my face after being packed like sardines for over 2hrs. I don't remember what time everything ended exactly but I headed back to my car by around 10:30pm. The drive back was a bit stressful as I was exhausted and we had a freak blizzard come out of nowhere. I didn't see anything about snow on the weather forecast for the day so I was surprised, but it was manageable for me since I live in the area and drive an AWD Forester with winter tires.
Final Thoughts
I got so busy with work, then my router shit the bed, then the great Reddit outage happened, then was busy at work again. I've been meaning to post this much sooner, it's crazy that it's already been two weeks since the concert. I surprisingly didn't get the usual post-concert depression this time, I think it was because this concert felt waaaay shorter to me for some reason. I kind of equate it to the feeling you get after watching a movie for the second time, you know what to expect and what scenes are coming next so the movie feels much shorter on the second watch-through. Everything straight up just felt like a 5min. dream to me it went by so fast. So it's a little sad in that sense but I still felt a feeling of fulfillment overall. Also, I thankfully didn't catch COVID this time so pretty happy about that .I should mention that masks were encouraged but not required, even for hi-touch/group photos. I wore mine all concert and for the hi-touch, but took it off for the group photo so I could see my face in the pic. I talked about my seating position off to the side giving me this weird feeling of disconnect from the performances last time, and this time felt much better as I was front and center and got to make lots of eye contact with the members the whole concert. I have no real regrets this time around, but my goals for my next concert are to talk to even more people and I kind of want to do something to give back to the community like the kind Insomnia that hand out cool freebies at the concerts. Not sure what I'm going to come up with yet but can't wait to get the creative juices flowing. Also, since I talked about photography with the Insomnia sitting next to me, it got me thinking about getting a press pass to shoot a Dreamcatcher concert in the future. I don't know how difficult that would be as an amateur with no real professional portfolio to speak of but it would be amazing if possible! I have to head off to work now, I'll probably fix some formatting to make this more readable and add other tidbits I forgot to add once I get off work.
Thank you to Dreamcatcher, DCC staff, Santander Staff, and all the wonderful Insomnia for another great and memorable experience!!

2023.03.20 21:06 JayStev85 How big were Aqua Timez in their peak?

A lot of people may know Aqua Timez for their songs used in popular anime series like Naruto, Gintama and most notably, Bleach.
However, from what I’ve seen, Aqua Timez did have a lot of mainstream appeal in their peak in the mid-to-late 2000s. Their debut shifted over half a million copies and many of their singles charted in the Oricon Top 10. Their first best hits album reached Number 1 in Japan, released near what I saw as the end of their peak charts-wise.
How big were they in Japan? Were they a leading band at the time? Or were they a drop in the ocean? Would they be heard a lot around?
And another thing, how unique were they seen as? I’ve always thought their early fusion of hip hop and rock was refreshing and the vocalist has a very signature voice with great range.
Any help would be appreciated!

2023.03.20 21:06 overthinkabl I haven’t played the beta yet but I’ve heard good things so far

My buddy and I plan on playing next weekend in the open beta. Hopefully it’s as good as it looks. Definitely giving me D2 vibes with the art style with the graphics of POE. Can’t wait to hop back into sanctuary since 2016

2023.03.20 21:05 Susan11II HMRC keep on sending letters saying that my friend still owes them tax but she settled everything with them a long time ago.

My friend was self-employed for a year and then she lost her job with a company she was providing services to. She told the HMRC that she is no longer employed and is on unemployment benefits and that she won't be able to do any self-assessment forms anymore as she didn't have any income. She also settled all her taxes at the time with HMRC and they even said it was all paid and that there is nothing anymore she will have to do. But HMRC keeps on sending her penalty letters of £60K nearly every year even though she told them hundred times that her account has been settled a long time ago and that she doesn't know where they are getting ridiculous amount calculations from as she never had that sort of income in her life. This is now becoming harassment. Can someone give me any advice on this?

2023.03.20 21:04 _rawstrawb Small Town Haircuts: salon? vs barber??

calling all fellow small town dudes and fellow nosy opiniated individuals! i could use some input
like every first haircut post long-term breakup? it has probably too many expectations riding on it. but wanna give it my best shot
so, im non-binary transmasc and been on t for over 5 years now. instead of being read as the person of indeterminate gender very quickly nearing 30 that i am? i find im most often read as either a particularly gay and fashion concious teenage boy? or, slightly less often, a teenage transgirl. especially since the recent move from large progressive city to small town.
both reads are fine by me, "youth" has its advantages, and people generally pick up on my age after the 2nd or 3rd interaction lol. mostly added for the context.
now, my hair has grown out past my shoulders? for the first time in over a decade! and since i finally figured out how to care for my waves/curls?? ive realized i actually really like the look of the longer hair. ended up settling on a wolf cut. for the unaware, a wolf cut is just the new variation on a mullet. more layers. its easy upkeep, just trendy/classic enough, and unisex. perfect.
SO, my question is? would you recommend getting this type of cut done at a salon? or barber??
i know salons are usually better with longer cuts and layering? but i haven't been to one since 2011, after being burned by one too many "john & kate plus 8" type pixie cuts in a row, lol
the barber in town is like.. a shockingly hip place for somewhere so small? sandalwood beard cream, straight razors and craft beer kind of place. while my options for salon are a bit more strip mall looking? with not quuuite enough reviews or knowing anyone ~queer~ in area yet to ask, to want to take the risk without some consideration. i could maaaybe be persauded to go to a salon in the nearest mid-sized town? but would, in general, prefer to have my new regular place be local.
whadda think? what would you do in my shoes?

2023.03.20 21:04 Maraging_steel 31/male/usa - “Words are easy, like the wind; faithful friends are hard to find.”

Hello, I'm looking to make new friends. I've had some success with this in the past and thought I'd give it another go. I'm hoping to connect with people who enjoy both lighthearted conversations and deeper discussions.
I've experienced my fair share of mental health challenges, but I'm grateful to say that things are much better for me now. Some of my interests include cooking (or at least planning) to cook fancy dishes, reading history books or biographies, staying up to date on all things related to information technology, listening to chill hop music, and cuddling with my dog.
I'm passionate about caring for others, being a good listener, and understanding different perspectives. I'm hoping to find someone or a few people who want to have consistent communication every day, where we can detail our lives and be vulnerable with each other. I'm looking for something like a sun up to sun down kind of thing. I believe that strong friendships are about more than just having fun and hanging out. They require a deeper level of understanding and connection, where we can truly be ourselves and feel accepted for who we are. I'm looking for people who are interested in building those kinds of connections, and who share my desire for meaningful and fulfilling relationships.
If any of this sounds interesting to you, please send me a message. To make it easier for you to initiate the conversation, I'll leave a few icebreakers below. You can choose one or two to answer if you'd like.
  1. What's a difficult decision you've had to make in your life, and how did you handle it?
  2. What's something that you're currently struggling with, and how are you working to overcome it?
  3. What’s your favorite TV show and why do you love it?
  4. What’s your favorite video games? If you don’t play video games, what about board games?
  5. What are your favorite colors?

2023.03.20 21:04 myria666 Ok but WHY does wellskating work how it does?

I recently learned to wellskate, both ledge and no ledge version, and im very intrigued as to actually Why you’re sent flying. Where actually is the velocity coming from and why does it send us forward? Eager edge doesn’t seem to provide nearly close to that much velocity, but does send us forward. Well plunges us downward, and fairly quickly, and so im presuming the velocity of well’s plunge downward is converted into forward velocity. If that’s the case, why does that happen? If anyone knows anything about this or can direct me towards resources on the underlying mechanics of d2 movement (not how-to guides, but explanations of Why stuff works the way it does) i would very much appreciate it. ty

2023.03.20 21:04 JohannesMeanAd2 PeteZahHutt MCC Performances: Where does MCC 29 fit in?

Hello everyone! I hope you all loved watching this MCC as much as I did!
You may remember that in early January, I made A post which ranked all 26 of the MCCs that PeteZahHutt had participated in based on his performance, ranging from the least good, to the most good.
My opinions in that post remain pretty much the same two months down the road, nothing has really changed how I view any of them. What has changed though, is that MCC has come back, and Pete was in it, making that list obsolete! So I thought it would be fun to come back and see where his MCC29 performance fits in with respect to the others that he's done over the years.
DISCLAIMER [again]: I love PeteZahHutt, he's my favorite MCC player, and as with the last post, I am ranking these purely out of respect for who he is as a content creator and Minecraft player. I am not detracting from how insanely cracked he is (or anyone else for that matter).
If you haven't read that previous post, I recommend giving it a read for a more in depth analysis and my reasoning for these, but this was how I ranked the MCCs that Pete's been in last time (top = best, bottom = least good):
  1. MCC 7
  2. MCC 14
  3. MCC 17
  4. MCC 3
  5. MCC 5
  6. MCC 26
  7. MCC 12
  8. MCC 6
  9. MCC 8
  10. MCC 10
  11. MCC 13
  12. MCC 25
  13. MCC 2
  14. MCC 22
  15. MCC 21
  16. MCC 1
  17. MCC 4
  18. MCC 28
  19. MCC 9
  20. MCC 23
  21. MCC 19
  22. MCC 20
  23. MCC 16
  24. MCC 18
  25. MCC All Stars
  26. MCC 15
So, now for the all-important question: where does MCC 29 fit in?
As you all know, in this MCC Pete was on lime with team-mates KaraCorvus, Seapeekay, and SolidarityGaming.
In my opinion this tournament is among his top 10 best MCCs so far, and a big reason for why that is the case actually stems from his common "weaknesses" that he struggled with in 2022. Team comms and PVP were both a big step up this time around, especially with an impressive 9-kill-run in Sky Battle on Pete's part, and effective communication which led to his team placing 2nd in Battle Box and not completely falling apart in Grid Runners. Pete also maintained a more than impressive resolve with movement games, especially with an incredible near-victory on Journey in Rocket Spleef Rush, and somehow soaring to new heights on Terra Swoop Force in TGTTOS (not to mention 5/6 top 10s once more there). As with MCC 13, Ace Race was an unfortunate mishap, but there isn't as much tilt this time around, simply a lack of practice with tridents and route-studying (also...confusing the red boost with a green boost, but we'll gloss over that). Were it not for Grid Runners Pete could have taken 1st individual, which would be a great way to start 2023!
As for where it specifically ranks for me, I'd place it in 10th, between MCC 10 and MCC 8. Unlike MCC 10, MCC 29 has far less handholding, with a much stronger player roster and less favorable game order which for me makes it more impressive, but unlike MCC 8, it doesn't necessarily carry that "wow" factor in his absolute best moments, it's just more consistently great than anything rather than a huge victory that other players keep making note of.
So that's Pete's MCC 29 for you! Let me know what you think, and of course I want to say that this is just my opinion and you're free to disagree if you're so inclined :) Have a great day!

2023.03.20 21:03 john55155 Struggling in the early stages of my sports tech business idea

Hi everyone,
I am 9 months into my incubation/accelerator programme and I am struggling. I was accepted into this program off of an idea that would see me solving the problems that new rules and regulations are creating in the world of rugby. World Rugby, the governing body of rugby, is stipulating more and more rules that limit the amount of training that players can do a week. I have been working on a solution for the past few months but I am struggling with a few key areas.
My solution is based upon the use of Virtual Reality to simulate a pitch whereby the coach/manager can coach and train the player, either remotely or in person, in a simulated environment during a specific play e.g. during a scrum, lineout, kick off etc.
My first problem is estimating the market size for rugby is difficult. It’s near impossible to find good hard data about how rugby teams are spending their money around the world. The second problem I am facing is validating and verifying this problem at scale. I have interviewed a number of coaches and they have given me some good feedback, but I haven’t been able to widely verify that this problem is painful, and most importantly, worth paying for. Finally, another problem I am running into is that I believe my solution can improve game knowledge and awareness, skills execution and I believe it can reduce training injury risk, how can I convince managers and coaches that this performance boost is worth paying for?
Does anybody have any experience in the sports technology sector? How have you guys found it? I am struggling here in Europe in terms of market reach and discovery.
Any help/suggestions and comments would be welcomed! I am also interested in hearing what would ye do if you were in my situation?

2023.03.20 21:03 MoTw18 2023 DAT Breakdown (22AA/22TS/17PAT)

2023 DAT Breakdown (22AA/22TS/17PAT)
Biology - 21
General Chemistry - 28
Organic Chemistry - 21
RC - 21
QR - 21
PAT - 17
Nontraditional student, graduated may 2022. Psychology major 3.85 GPA. Previously premed and scored 503 on MCAT (August 2021).
Materials Used:
  1. DATBooster! I truly think it has everything you need and they're always improving and adding new things. It was highly representative and prepares you very well. Biology is VERY representative with some questions similar or same as practice exam. Feralis notes and sheets are great. I personally followed the booster schedule and read feralis notes to get a good base, then focused on cheat sheets and booster quizlet. General chemistry was excellent on Booster. I HIGHLY recommend you read the study notes for each chapter. Orgo is great too, make sure to know reactions, acidity, stability, lab tests and techniques. Booster is ultimately the best resource due to its low price and EXCELLENT study material.
  2. Quizlet - I personally don't like Anki so i used quizlet from booster to memorize information. I think it's important to go be comfortable with your study techniques, so if you don’t like anki don’t be afraid to do something else. I did not rely heavily on quizlet, I used it to initially memorize the information then did practice questions and revisited the topics four to five times. I only used quizlet for biology, everything else I relied on booster practice and notes. If you’re using quizlet, make sure to constantly review material in phase 2 and 3.
  3. Bootcamp Bio Notes - I only used these for a quick refresher on certain topics such as developmental biology and ecology. I only used this in the final 2 weeks. Feralis is great but close to the exam I had to prioritize time so I used those bio notes. They are not too long and tell you what you need.
Study Timeline / How I Studied:
I followed the recommended booster 10 week schedule with minor tweaks of my own. I started light studying in December, then studied 10 weeks. I made my own personal adjustments especially at the end. I targeted my personal weaknesses and drilled information in the last 2 weeks. Do not be afraid to make your own schedule, I just personally like structure and the Booster schedule is easy to follow. During phase 1 of Booster, I began studying at around 10 AM and took breaks and finally stopped studying at around 8 PM. During phase 2, I stopped usually at 5 PM and I never reviewed practice exams the same day I took them. I really recommend doing this as you can take a break, clear your head, and be focused for review and further studying the following day. I made my own quizlet from going over exams, where I’d go over every single question and add terms / concepts I don’t know. I’d make a personal note of topics I need to work on. I printed the organic chemistry reaction packet from Booster and drilled the reactions. Luckily I took organic chemistry II in Fall 2022 so I already knew most reactions. I did the question and reaction banks on orgo and watched videos on reactions I don’t remember like EAS and Radicals. For general chemistry, I relied on the study notes on Booster. I attribute my 28 to the practice exams and notes. I transferred the notes to notability and highlighted and thoroughly went over each topic. For RC, I didn’t study but the method that worked best for me was reading 5-6 paragraphs and answering questions. For QR the practice / formula sheet was enough for me, it’s harder than the real exam but you’ll be prepared.
Day of Exam:
Bio (21): Booster was really representative here with 4-5 questions I’ve seen before. There were a couple questions that threw me off guard and only 1 taxonomy question. I felt the exam mainly focused on genetics, systems, and developmental biology, but every unit was covered. Some questions stumped me but I made an educated guess. The questions are SURFACE LEVEL. There were a few in depth but that’s all. I recommend Feralis, Bootcamp bio notes, and quizlet/anki. I’d make sure to know how to work with dihybrid crosses!
GC (28): I loved this section, it was straightforward with a few harder questions. No math was necessary as it was already set up for me. This question heavily tested concepts such as ideal gas / kinetic molecular theory, the idea that group elements share characteristics, what oxidizing agent really means, etc. They’re testing your knowledge of gen chem with a little math sprinkled in. I did see a question that wanted a classification of a certain element. Tricky because actinides and lanthanides are joined with the rest and my element was in the d block transition metal but also appeared like it was a lanthanide. Be careful! Also, with stoichiometry, if you’re confused you can check with the units cross out / match up.
OC (21): Not a ton of reactions and I can remember them (carboxylic acid + SOCl2, hydroboration of alkene, aldol, what reagent for this reaction). 1 H NMR was tested (1 question), 1 question on IUPAC, 1 question on lab test, specifically bromine test (booster has a sheet, MEMORIZE IT!) Rest were about acidity, stability, hybridization, aromaticity, etc. Booster really helps here pay attention to all hybridization and aromaticity questions on booster. NOTE: my exam had all structures in the format like CH3CH2… make sure you’re comfortable with those.
PAT (17): Don’t ask me anything here I despised PAT. Make sure you’re good on hole punch and cube counting at least. 1 floating cube showed up so know how to do those.
RC (21): I skipped my break after PAT and did this section. I had the adrenaline and mind focus to keep going. Most don’t do this, but I did this for most of my practice.I was really disappointed in this section. I had one really dense passage that was really hard to understand. Recall questions were harder and more critical thinking was needed. I guessed on 10 questions so I’m glad it worked out. All passages were 12-13 paragraphs. My method was reading 5-6 paragraphs and then answering questions. The questions were not chronological for me.
QR (21): Super easy, all questions were straightforward. I was shocked at how simple it was. No geometry, lots of algebra and applied math. Couple really easy probability questions, with 1 coin question really similar to a question I remember on booster. Booster prepares you very well here. I wasn’t sure on 2-3 questions max. Know statistics well and know how to calculate standard deviation / tell set has a greater SD.
Looking at my booster exams, I scored around the same as my highest score. For nearly all sections, I scored about my average. I did not have an increase in every section like many others. I’m extremely happy with my score and I’m glad Booster prepped me very well.
Ending Advice:
I despite standarized testing, feels like torture. Take your time here, have rest days and don’t push too hard. Your hard work will pay off here. You made it this far so you’re extremely capable in acing the DAT. Also if you’re aren't ready, don’t be afraid to push the exam. Better to waste a fee than paying for a retake. You’ll all do great!

2023.03.20 21:03 sunshineylt Been told it’s a 56 week wait to see a gynaecologist today

Hello everyone I wanted to start this off saying I’m not bashing NHS Scotland. I am an NHS staff nurse and have worked in my speciality for 10 years so well aware of all the pressures on the system etc. I’m 32 (F) and since I was about 18/19 suffered really bad period pains, heavy bleeding, painful sex and it took me a good few years to get pregnant! I was always fobbed off by GPs with strong painkillers and tbf probably never pushed as hard as I should’ve to be seen by a gynae specialist. I had my wee boy 18 months ago and was hoping the old wife’s tale I was always told (it’ll get better when you have babies) would be true. Well it’s actually been the complete opposite. Every month (although my periods are never regular) the pain and symptoms have gotten worse than the previous month. I start getting horrendous pains in my abdomen and now also my back and down my legs about 2 weeks before I bleed (Think this is when I start to ovulate) and the pain does not subside until about 3 days after I bleed. Also very bloated and can’t wear any nice clothes. Sex is agony deep inside, I feel faint I am low in mood and I feel like the worst mum and partner. I just want to lie on the floor or my bed but you can’t do that with a toddler. I also hate taking any strong painkillers when I’m alone with my wee boy. So for about half of the month I’m in agony. I finally went to my GP (a new one) and had a ultrasound which came back as normal so she referred me to gynae as she suspects it is endo. That was about 8 weeks ago. Over this weekend the pains/cramps have been unbearable I’ve had to get my mum to take my wee boy for me (more guilt) as my partner was away. I nearly passed out in the bus when some really bad cramps came on and I actually look grey. Went back to GP today and she said they’ll take some bloods off me on Thursday, offered me stronger analgesia and said the current waiting list to see the specialist was 56 weeks cause of Covid backlog!! I cannot go on like this for another year. It’s making me such a miserable impatient shattered mum and partner I feel they’d both be better off without me :(

2023.03.20 21:02 SarahTealeaf 193cm tall and obese online clothing issues.

So, im close to 4 months in after egg cracking and been trying hard at figuring out clothing but its been really difficult for me to figure out. Im amab, 193cm and weigh currently 156kgs and on weightloss (so far down 16kgs since i started in decembwr 2022)
My issue is that i want to get feminine clothes, but not too feminine as i fear id just feel like a man in a dress instead of a woman, and would rather start small, ie pants.
So i thought leggings, and tight womens denim pants (with stretch). The issue with this is that almost all plus size pants arent tall, as i need 80cm+ inner leg length, and then the hips to waist ratio being all wrong with a male physique in womens clothes when you have a large gut and plus size pants are high waisted most of the time as far ive found.
I shop in eu stores only, buying anything outside of eu is much to expensive. And i also prefer shopping online to avoid going into stores, even though ive already done that once.
Easy answer is i guess lose more weight but i also want to start my transition journey with clothe.
Sorry if all this sounded like a rant, but im honestly just confused how to navigate gwtting clothes when the starting point seems impossible.
Underwear has been more or less the same experience but just for the hip to waist ratio in size not fitting either or.
