2023.06.10 20:55 hangerguardian Build options
Hello, I'm looking to build a budget machine for running language models. I know this build is not ideal but I am really trying to get the best I can while staying under ~$800-$1000
Motherboard: ASRock Z690 Pro RS CPU: Intel Core i5-12600K GPU: Nvidia Tesla P40
I am just going to shop around and get whatever psu/ram/ssd I can find on sale. 650W Psu, 32gb ram, and 2tb ssd. I plan to upgrade the ram later as well. I also will likely buy a second GPU down the line. Going to use it for model inference, stable diffusion, whisper, and bark (not all at once). I'm hoping to train some qLoRAs on it too(for small models), but I couldn't find any confirmation if the P40 can do that or not.
If anyone has any feedback please share. Again, I know this isn't top of the line and may not be the highest tokens per second, I am just trying to get the most power I can with my budget.

2023.06.10 20:44 f_edsthrowaway Sudden Resurgence of Extreme Hunger?
Context: I've been in recovery for about three and a half months. My EH was really bad at the beginning (in the area of 10,000 calories a day) but I kept consistently eating, and over time my EH significantly declined, although I would not call it "normal" yet (I was eating in the range of 4500 calories a day). My mental hunger was also almost completely gone, and at month 2 my weight seemed to plateau.
However, for the past two or three weeks, the EH has come roaring back with a vengeance and I feel like two months of progress have been completely undone. I can't even get to sleep at night because I'm so hungry, and even when I finally do, I end up tossing and turning and waking up every few hours. I've also started gaining weight again, which I admit has been really difficult to accept -- I could've tolerated the weight I had plateaued at, but I feel like to go any higher is to "cross a red line", since it would take me into the ""obese"" BMI.
I can't even begin to describe how extremely frustrating this all is; I thought I had been doing so well and despite my doubts, the recovery process seemed to be working exactly as it was supposed to. I started to trust that my hunger would indeed normalize, and that I could start living like a normal person instead of having eating be my full-time job. But now I just feel stuck in this forever loop, and the worst part is, I don't know what caused this flare-up.
The only thing I could think of is that about three weeks ago, I got a UTI, which caused me a lot of pain and made me lose my appetite, but only for about three days. And on only one of those days did I miss an actual meal, the other two days I may have missed just a snack or two, but otherwise everything else was the same. Nothing else in my life has changed -- not movement, not types of food, not meal timing, nothing that I can think of.
It's hard for me to believe that such minor undereating for such a small amount of time could have caused this outsized of an effect, especially since in the next few days after that, I made sure to make up for it. If my body truly expects me to be that perfect then I don't see how recovery is possible.
With each day that the hunger doesn't diminish despite all the time and effort I'm putting in, I feel like I lose a little more motiviation and get a little more frustrated. Someone please tell me that they've experienced something like this before and that it goes away eventually :(

2023.06.10 20:40 HillaryGoddamClinton Eye tracking data restrictions?
Disclaimer: I’m not a dev, just curious/concerned.
Eye tracking is obviously going to be central to AVR interfaces moving forward. Data about where users look will inevitably make its way to apps running on the device by virtue of needing to give user input. I can’t help but think that there are some big potential downsides to that which will need to be carefully managed.
The more obvious one is the incentive that app developers will have to force users to actually watch ads, a la Black Mirror. But there are others that are subtler and more insidious.
Advertisers have traditionally been relegated to tracking our online behavior: purchases, browsing history, message content. But eyes move in ways that can subconsciously betray our preferences, interests, and thoughts. I for one don’t want companies knowing how long my eyes linger on different products while I’m shopping, or on the body parts of attractive people in media I’m watching. Our pupil dilation - something the Vision Pro can no doubt measure by virtue of its authentication hardware - can also show how focused, interested, or engaged we are in what we’re looking at. I imagine eye movements could even indicate symptoms of physical ailments or psychological disorders. The type of profile advertisers could build for a user with that kind of info will get well into dystopian territory.
Is Apple placing restrictions - either via policy or technical means - on the type of eye tracking data apps can access and send external to the device? Has there been any official dialog from Apple about this kind of thing?

2023.06.10 20:35 sockfoot Issues when printing vertically
| || |https://imgur.com/a/pk3fjGA submitted by sockfoot to FixMyPrint [link] [comments]
This is a quick mount that I designed yesterday. Printed flat it has no noticeable issues but I thought perhaps vertically will allow for better strength so I tried that and got a strange result. The lines are very regular at about 10.5mm middle to middle and sort of looks like about 5 layers get shifted slightly and then back to normal. 0.24mm layer height, 20% infill cubic subdivision sliced with Cura on an Elegoo Neptune 3 Pro. Filament is SunLu PLA that has worked well for the majority of the spool and is printed at 200 degrees, bed temp is 60. Print speed is 60 mm/s (infill = 65, wall = 30) and retraction distance is 1.0mm at speed of 25 mm/s.
(I realize that printing vertically the top clip would need support, I was just testing before batching some out) https://preview.redd.it/4ewc82sll85b1.jpg?width=4080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b6fdee0f17cb8fdf02cbc10b1a73c06026d187eb
2023.06.10 20:32 indyman_123 At a Glance: 'Gardens of the Moon' - Book 1, Chapter 1
Link(s) for previous post(s) -
Book 1: Pale Epigraph 1 -
(had to put up the whole thing really; won't be doing this for every epigraph; just the imp. ones)
In the eighth year the Free Cities of Genabackis established contracts with a number of mercenary armies to oppose the Imperium's advance; prominent among these were the Crimson Guard, under the command of Prince K'azz D'Avore (see Volumes III & V); and the Tiste Andii regiments of Moon's Spawn, under the command of Caladan Brood and others.
The forces of the Malazan Empire, commanded by High Fist Dujek Onearm, consisted in that year of the 2nd, 5th, and 6th Armies, as well as legions of Moranth.
In retrospect two observations can be made. The first is that the Moranth alliance of 1156 marked a fundamental change in the science of warfare for the Malazan Imperium, which would prove efficacious in the short term. The second observation worth noting is that the involvement of the sorcerous Tiste Andii of Moon's Spawn represented the beginning of the continent's Sorcery Enfilade, with devastating consequences.
All this seems intimidating to say the least! Epigraph 2 -
About a mother lamenting for her boy (it seems), who's now a young soldier, but who's not yet seen what war is about ("bright heart not yet cooled to hard iron"). Is this close to what it's depicting, or...?
- 1161st year of Burn’s Sleep; 103rd year of the Malazan Empire; 7th year of Empress Laseen’s Rule.
- 7 years since the events of the Prologue.
- Laseen is now the Empress, and the Empire is ever spreading under her rule.
- An old witch, Rigga [1st app.] is alongside a young fisher girl (unnamed) on Itko Kan, watching on as a Regiment of soldiers pass them by.
- The witch is speaking about some prophesies concerning the girl, but the latter is seemingly uninterested. Rigga seems like a cool charac… oh, never mind. She’s dead. (by a swinging gauntleted hand from one of the soldiers, hitting her in the head, and killing her). Well... anyways, moving on.
- With the soldiers now out of sight, and old Rigga lying dead at her feet, the girl encounters two men – Cotillion [1st app.] and Amanas [1st app.], along with a sudden appearance of 7 massive hounds out of nowhere, who then follow the path the soldiers had taken when the latter, shorter man gives the order to do so.
- After a while, screams can be heard. The girl, now a witness, is engulfed by shadows through Cotillion, who says that she’s now “a pawn of god.”
- Some time later, Adjunct Lorn [1st app.] arrives at the horrifying scene where the men, women, and horses of the 19th Regiment of the Itko Kanese Eight Cavalry have been brutally massacred. Along with the locals, over 400 have been killed. (Jeez!)
- Paran, who wanted something challenging, and was hungry for prestige, has now joined the Malazan Army. Now as a Lieutenant, he’s overseeing the investigation of the carnage.
- After discussing his opinions with the Adjunct to the Empress in his usual fearless, uncaring, and confident manner, Paran is hand-picked by Lorn into her staff, to become an aide to the Adjunct. Lorn is sure that the merciless murder of so many is a diversion from something much bigger, and that gods and sorcery are now involved.
- Lorn is no ordinary woman herself. She’s young, dangerous, and a mage killer. The one who hunts down and kills mages. The scorpion in the imperial pocket. And who arrived in Itko Kan thanks to “eerie magical Warrens”. (first mention of the magic being used)
- Meanwhile, Staff Seargant Aragan [1st app.] is faced by a very young, hardly 12/13 year old girl, named Sorry [1st app.], who is there to be recruited into the Malazan Army, specifically under the command of High Fist Dujek Onearm – Onearm’s Host, which is currently overlooking the Genebackan Campaign (which is apparently in a mess of its own).
- Paran is tasked to gather intel of the massacre from a nearby town named Gerrom. But when he reaches there, it’s completely deserted. Even worse, inside the Imperial Constabulary, everyone is dead, killed by magic.
Sweat and death clung to the air thick as gauze.
The dark bloom of sorcery was a stain few cared to examine too closely. It had a way of spreading.
OK, now that sounds like something, eh?
- A short while later, he’s met by Topper [1st app.], a Claw of unsurpassed skill who took the lives of Unta’s royal line. Also, loves the colour green, and wears a lot of colourful rings on both his hands. Oh, and also is apparently the Commander of the Claw itself. (although he persists that Laseen still commands it, and he just assists her)
- After a quick bite of food and a sip of wine, Topper guides Paran and his horse through the Imperial Warren.
Paran turned to see a curtain in the air tear open on the road, spilling dull yellow light. A Warren, the secret paths of sorcery. "Hood's Breath." He sighed, fighting off a sudden chill. Within he could see a grayish pathway, humped on either side by low mounded walls and vaulted overhead by impenetrable ocher-hued mist. The air swept past into the portal like a drawn breath, revealing the pathway to be of ash as invisible currents stirred and raised spinning dust-devils. First look into the "Warrens".
A short while later they came to a stone archway. It had been recently constructed, and Paran recognized the basalt as Untan, from the Imperial quarries outside the capital. The walls of his family's estate were of the same gray-black glittering stone. At the center of the arch, high over their heads, was carved a taloned hand holding a crystal globe: the Malazan Imperial sigil. First look at the Malazan Sigil.
- Passing through the archway, they land directly inside the the Hall of The Throne in Unta, where Laseen is sitting atop a throne of twister bone.
- After exchanging a few “pleasantries” with the Empress, Paran meets up with Lorn (who is casually dressing up while Paran enters, but when the latter turns in embarrassment, Lorn replies with “I’m not one for modesty.”). OK lass, fair enough.
- After discussing a few things, Lorn orders Paran to return to his home in the capital for now, and that there will be a reckoning/revenge for the carnage at Itko Kan. Paran answers straightforwardly (as usual) that he’ll be there when that time comes.
- Paran return to his family home, where he is met by Gamet [1st app.], the guard. Once inside, he’s greeted by Tavore [1st app.], his sister who’s a year younger. After very briefly discussing about their father and his business, she mentions that Felisin, the youngest sibling, is at her studies and that she would be happy to see Paran, but sad to know that he’ll be leaving soon. Before leaving, Tavore also mentions that Felisin is “too soft for this world, brother. For any world, I think.”
BEST OF: QUOTES / DIALOGUES
The Empire's been grinding this land down for a hundred years. You was born in it. I wasn't. When I was your age Itko Kan was a country. We flew a banner and it was ours. We were free, lass.
Rigga to fisher girl.
Across the sea the Empress has driven her knife into virgin soil. The blood now comes in a tide and it'll sweep you under, child, if you're not careful.
Rigga to fisher girl.
You are now one with the body of Empire, Lieutenant. It commands you. You respond unquestioningly to its will. You are a small part of a muscle in that body. No more. No less.
Topper to Paran.
The Claw smiled. "You have begun to learn, Paran. Never be too easy with the knowledge you possess. Words are like coin—it pays to hoard." Topper
"Until you die on a bed of gold," Paran said.
BEST OF: SCENES / MOMENTS
- The Itko Kan Massacre. 'Nuff said! (honestly, something about those four words has a different feeling about them. There's more Gravitas surrounding them, I feel personally. Whenever I think about the whole thing, it just feels like the start to something dark and dangerous. Is it just me?)
- Rigga's prophecies were something to ponder upon for sure!
FINAL THOUGHTS + THEORIES AND SPECULATIONS
- There are a couple references present to the Prologue. Firstly, Paran pondering on the words "live quitely" by the Commander. Secondly, Laseen pointing out to Paran that he didn't take the Commander's advice of not joining the Army after all, and that the Commander himself didn't heed to hers (no detail about the latter is present though).
- From what I could gather, there's an unease, a kind of tension between Paran and Tavore it seems. On the other hand, Felisin seems to have a good bonding with Paran.
- Overall, a very good start imho. Of course, there's some names of people and places that you have no idea about, but I'm just enjoying the ride tbh!
A huge shoutout to 'Malazan: Search of the Fallen'. It was a massive help, and I hope to continue using this amazing tool. Credit where it's due.
Any feedback is always welcome. Hope you enjoyed.

2023.06.10 20:32 Limeyyyyyyy Carthas - Paladin of the Zakarum Faith D2 Paladin Speculation
Update: It's confirmed! Carthas is the Paladin from Diablo 2! Look below :)
We don't really know what happened to the paladin from Diablo 2 but man oh man did the voice actor for Carthas from the side quest Lost Legacy
sound like the original voice actor, but couldn't find him in the credits though.
We got long lines of dialogue from him as well as an item made from him, would be cool if this was the pally from D2 since we don't know much about what happened to him. He does state that he was there when Sankekur was slain and that "we defeated a prime evil"
insinuating that maybe it was he who did it (as played in Diablo 2).
This is PURE speculation, but do we know any information that would discount Carthas from being the paladin? Because it would mean that after the events of Diablo 2 Carthas, assuming it is the D2 paladin, would have returned to safe guard Sankekur's body but had his spirit eventually corrupted by hatred.
What do you guys think?
Link to the boss fight and his dialogue here: https://youtu.be/cZv7BIbvT1M
And I mean, compare his voice to the original's: Diablo II - Paladin Voice - YouTube
, they are very similar UPDATE!
It is confirmed! This was apparently confirmed in the Book of Lorath book which states that:
"Carthas and his companions descended deep into the keeps beneath Rakhat Keep, where they prepared a chamber as Sankekur's tomb." .... "So in a noble sacrifice, they committed their souls to an eternal vigil guarding the tomb."

2023.06.10 20:30 khoafraelich789 This Unassuming 1964 Studebaker Daytona Is a Rare Sleeper With Supercharged Power
| || | submitted by khoafraelich789 to CarInformationNews [link] [comments]
Discontinued in 1967 following an unsuccessful merger with Packard, Studebaker left a few iconic classics behind. The Avanti is perhaps the most iconic thanks to its record-setting performance, but the Champion and the Golden Hawk are also popular among enthusiasts. However, the South Bend-based automaker also built a cool sleeper named after a famous race track.
I'm talking about the Daytona, a nameplate that the company offered from 1962 until 1966, when the final Studebakers left the assembly line. The Daytona was based on the Lark, a compact that Studebaker debuted in 1959, when the segment was still in its infancy. Needing a more diverse lineup to compete with Ford, Chevrolet, and Pontiac, Studebaker launched the Daytona as a range-topping version of the Lark in 1962.
Originally restricted to the two-door hardtop and convertible body styles, the Daytona expanded to include a station wagon in 1963. A year later, when the Lark was redesigned, the Daytona became a stand-alone model and gained a four-door sedan version too. A somewhat innovative car in 1959, the compact had become a slow-selling and mundane vehicle in the mid-1960s.
Looking to revive sales figures, Studebaker created a high-performance version using the supercharged 289-cubic-inch (4.7-liter) V8 engine that made the Avanti America's most powerful production car in 1962.
Topped by a Paxton blower, the 289-horsepower (yup, that's one horsepower-per-cubic-inch ratio) mill found its way into the Super Lark and Daytona in 1963. The engine pushed the compact from 0 to 60 mph (97 kph) in only 7.3 seconds, notably quicker than its Detroit rivals, and toward a top speed of 132 mph (212 kph). The latter was also an impressive figure at the time.
Unfortunately, these R2 cars were far from popular. Studebaker sold only 325 Larks with supercharged V8 (just 53 were Super Larks) in 1963 and only 27 Daytona R2 hardtops in 1964. But while it did not help Studebaker avoid bankruptcy, the latter is now a very rare gem that many of us might not even get to see in the metal. The light metallic blue example you see here is one of those cars.
The kind of classic you'd only spot at car shows like the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN), this rare bird went through a rotisserie restoration some years ago, so it's one of those extremely scarce units that looks like it just left the assembly line. And check out that awesome Laguna Blue over brown color combo, which makes this Daytona R2 unique, according to the owner.
And if you're here to hear the road of the supercharged 289 V8, you're in luck. The owner pops up the hood and fires up what has to be Studebaker's most iconic powerplant. Granted, it's not as aggressive as a 426-cubic-inch (7.0-liter) HEMI, but it makes proper muscle car noises. Check it out in the video below
2023.06.10 20:30 johnjohn2214 Monaco vs Metro92 is a great opportunity to evaluate both Bilal and Wemby
French NBL Pro A is probably the 4th or 5th best domestic league in Europe. Metro beat villeurbanne which was one of the weekest Euroleague teams this year but now they face an actual European powerhouse. Monaco
Bilal has a very small sample size of good offensive games with the mens team. And we got to see all the good qualities he already possesses. He's already a great defender, cutter, passer and finisher. He's a good straight line driver. Now he will be forced to play in much tighter spaces against a good defensive team.
He scored just 1 point in their last meeting in April which was a Monaco beat down. This is a great opportunity to see where he's at as a top prospect agaist a team that had Victor struggling as well.
If he has a good series agaist them I'll buy the hype of him as a top 8-12 prospect.

2023.06.10 20:29 Silv3rVix3n 37 (F4F) SEPA/East Coast looking for my queen
While this post will mainly be aimed to find a romantic relationship I'm always looking for more queer friends so if you like what you read, send me a message/chat!
First I want to get out things that have turned even potential friends away and I do understand these circumstances are not for everyone. I am on disability and had to move back in with a parent. I am able bodied and do everything for myself, can drive, etc. I am trying to figure out things I can do from home to supplement my income or hopefully be self sustaining in the future. I'm also a legal medical marijuana patient who currently uses daily but it is not my entire personality.
I am looking for a serious, long term and monogamous relationship. We all have preferences and I am not attracted to masculinity at all, center to fem is what does it for me. I'm 37 and looking for 30-45 year old women. I don't mind going higher in age but absolutely not lower. I am not comfortable posting pictures on here simply for anonymity. But I have no issues sending pictures and have no problems at all if I'm not your cup of tea, we all like what we like. That said I think I'm fairly attractive. As the username suggests I have some greys taking over. I don't label myself, I wouldn't say I'm fem or masc or androgynous. I'm very obviously queer though, I'm sort of hard to describe as far as presentation. I'm 5'6", I lovingly refer to myself as medium chubby, green eyes with long, thick, wavy hair and snake bite piercings. I also have two tattoos, one on my chest and one on my back. I'm white and ask that any other white people who even want to be my friend are working on being anti racist and committed to dismantling white supremacy within themselves.
I have been on a very long healing journey. In the past I have been through lots of therapy and continue to work on myself. I understand that not everyone has access to therapy for a multitude of reasons but I absolutely am looking for someone who also works on themselves and has a strong and growth oriented mindset.
I'm a very straightforward and pragmatic person. I appreciate someone who can also be direct and communicate things well. I've been told I could be a stand up comedian because I'm pretty funny. A little gift from a traumatic childhood. I'm only into monogamy and am loyal to a fault. I'm also a hopeless romantic and very open with my emotions, again looking for the same. Avoidants need not apply. I'm autistic (self diagnosed) and ADHD (diagnosed professionally). I would prefer a neurodivergent partner, I feel even if our way of expressing doesn't line up we understand each other far better. This combination plus my own strong intuition gives me the ability to recognize patterns and read people exceptionally well. This can sometimes be off putting so if you don't like being seen and someone who can possibly tell you things when you have not disclosed them first then I'm definitely not the one for you.
I'm a bit of a contradiction in that I love being a homebody but also need to get out and do new things now and then. I can't stand doing one or the other for too long. My hobbies and interests include hiking, photography, art of all mediums, writing(mostly poetry), nature in general, animals of all species, astrology, tarot, spirituality in general, quantum physics and things like string theory, I also love some conspiracy/creepy pasta stuff for simple entertainment now and then. I am also a dog mom and my little guy is my absolute world.
Overall I'm looking for someone who is open, communicates well, is self aware, can respect boundaries, has cultivated peace, safety and confidence in themselves. I want someone to share this journey with, who doesn't need me or a relationship but wants true, deep connection and intimacy. Someone who will grow with me while we support each other, someone who will add to the happiness I created for myself, someone who wants to achieve but more so wants to experience this thing called life.
I do ask that if you message me to send me plenty of information about who you are as well and what stuck out to you in my post. I don't do well with surface level conversations and small talk. I'd rather someone over share than be too guarded. Also because reddit is full of scammers please verify who you are if you'd like to talk, I will not waste my time.

2023.06.10 20:20 blurryturtle 2023 Roland Garros Men's Finals 🐢
As usual, before a big final, I like to get a little behind the scenes insight. Last time, I got up close and personal with the players, but as a result, a restraining order was issued, so this time, I leveled up and installed some cameras in their hotel rooms. This will give us a first-hand look at their prep for the finals.
Casp-o-vision : Sunday, June 11th. The clock strikes 6:00AM. Norwegian music begins playing. Casper’s eyes open. “Ahhh Kongesangan,” thinks Casper, “the only choice for brushing one’s teeth”. Casper begins brushing. He is already in the bathroom, where he sleeps standing up to maximize efficiency. He brushes the right side efficiently, and does the best he can on the other. Though these teeth are mainly defensive, they are constantly improving. Casper turns to his coaches, who are sitting in the tub watching him brush. They nod and make fists, the only coaching he has ever received from them. He nods and makes a fist as well. The main coach, whose name he has never learned, hands him a plate of Fårikål, and he begins eating. “Shouldn’t I have eaten this before I brushed my teeth?” he asks, but perhaps the storyteller, like Casper’s team, did not think this through. Still though, Google is very informative. “Boy, I sure do love Oslo,” muses Casper. “And fjords.” Wow, Casper is ready for Roland Garros.
Djokocam : Sunday June 11th. The clock strikes 6:00AM. Norwegian music begins playing. “Perhaps we should not have been roommates” thinks Novak, as he looks across the room to Casper’s bed. But Casper is not there. Djokovic stretches his impervious to cramps body. He is not in a bed, but gently relaxing on a bed of moss, which grew when he summoned it with warrior one. He eases slowly into chair pose, and a chair appears. Goran quickly sits in it. “Look at my cool new shades!” says Goran. “Very nice, Goran,” says Novak, as he closes his eyes to begin meditating. “You think we can win, Novak?” asks Goran, while swinging his legs excitedly in the chair. “Yes, Goran,” answers Novak. “Can you believe they eat snails here?” asks Goran, while pretending his hand is an airplane. “Yes, Goran,” answers Novak. “Would you ever eat a snail?” asks Goran, while pretending he is an airplane. “Yes, Goran,” answers Novak. “Wow,” says Goran. His friend Novak is so cool.
Casper emerges from the bathroom, and Djokovic heads in. There are crumbs in the sink, and Ruud’s team shake their fists and nod at him as he begins combing his hair. Novak shakes his head. He is ready for Roland Garros.
Men’s Singles Final : There is something about Casper Ruud’s game that makes it seem like he is not doing anything special. He is ultra-consistent, and he makes the right choices in almost every situation, but his disciplined approach can make a player like Zverev or Rublev seem like they are on another level. Ruud has made two Grand Slam finals already (both last season), but was summarily written off before they began, suffering defeat at the hands of Carlos Alcaraz at the US Open, and Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros. Here again, he is being given very slim chances by most people. When you do everything right (by the book), there is a sense that you become predictable, and the greats of the game have excellent situational awareness. If they can move early to your shots, you’re not going to get many errors from them. It makes this a very uphill battle for him, because Novak Djokovic is a player that is unlikely to be rattled by the classic patterns and approaches to the game, and is one of the most consistent players the tour has ever seen. Once he gets in a rhythm, you’re playing a tennis game set to expert, so Casper will need to elevate his aggression here.
Ruud will thankfully be fresh for the finals, but after watching the Alcaraz demise it’s hard to gauge how long that will last. Him being a bit older does give him a bit more stamina and experience, and he had a fairly quick match against Zverev. He’s also done this before, so I think physically he is ready to go 5 sets. Thinking, though, isn’t it always the cause of our blunders. Zverev looked competitive in parts of their match, but he is not at the top level of the game yet. His ceiling is, but where does his ceiling lurk? Ruud is nearly robotic out there. You know he is going to execute and move the ball well and his defensive skills are solid enough to make his opponent play several shots to win a point. It’s the discipline he has that allows him to do this regardless of the stage and the opponent. Zverev, on the other hand, is very much thinking out there. When he has a setup, it’s very up in the air what he should do. He’s often creating angles and situations that he is only going to play 1-2 of per match, and it leads to errors as he second-guesses and hesitates on shots (especially rough in choosing when and when not to come to net). In truth, he could have wound up deep in the match against Casper, but when Zverev had control or time, he made a lot of unforced errors trying to crack Ruud’s defenses. Despite having a ton of experience on tour, Zverev has not really ironed out his game and since returning from injury, he hasn’t really dealt with a match where he had to play hard every point in order to win. The ability is there, but the repetition of effort is not.
Speaking of repetition of effort, it should be noted what a great adjustment Djokovic made in his semifinal match. He is very frequently a slow starter on clay, but he came out and looked to match Alcaraz’s aggression from the start. It was a very “I’m not going to miss and I want you to know that” approach, and digging in in this manner started to forced Alcaraz to come up with more and more ambitious attempts. They both have a lot of heat on their shots, but Alcaraz is certainly the one swinging harder on the average ball. He started to make errors, but it looked to me like he would wear down Djokovic’s defenses with the onslaught. There have been a number of matches this tournament where the first couple games were furiously played, and eventually one player settled into their role as a defender, or folded up and forced offense until they lost. This didn’t feel like the case here, as both of these players can legitimately expect to hit a high percentage of their shots no matter what style they proceed with. A good example is how a post-cramp, immobile and defeated Alcaraz was able to guide winners off Djokovic’s serve. Not a strategy to win the match, but something that he rarely uses in match-play yet was instantly able to do.
After losing the first set, I still like Alcaraz’s chances. It had become the best type of ATP match, one where the player who is serving doesn’t just automatically win. The great big 3 matchups featured so many breaks and yet those breaks weren’t huge cracks or fails at all, it was just that at the highest level, players can play defense and offense from everywhere on the court. They exchanged breaks late in the 2nd set, and it seemed like Alcaraz’s aggression was finally mentally wearing Djokovic down. Early in the third though, disaster struck in the way that it always seems to when a phenom plays Djokovic at a major. Carlos Alcaraz cramped. Spectacularly. His hand cramped, his calf cramped, and he looked like Medusa slid in his DMs for a moment. Big credit to Djokovic for being bigger than the moment, and coming across the net to express concern and help Alcaraz to his chair. Cramping is something that affects a lot of players on tour, but it was pretty unexpected from Alcaraz. His physical strength is off the charts, and he trains extremely hard. If some combination of nerves and over-exertion really caused this, then it’s a by-product of Djokovic being willing to go toe-to-toe with him right from the start of the match.
There are great nutritionists working on the tour, but once you actually go full-cramp, it is nearly impossible to continue playing tennis. The muscle is in pain, and doesn’t want to fully flex even if you do. In short, you’re fatigued, in pain, and weak. Alcaraz forfeited the game so he could get treatment, but with 2 full sets left against the guy who is leading the GOAT debate currently (and competing against off-tour opponents), you’re pretty much finished. Brave of Alcaraz to finish out the match, and I had some hope that the kid would go full-tank and hydrate to recover for a 4th, but it appeared the damage was irreversible. He stood in on some returns, and while this means that any poor returns leave your court position too shallow to cover both wings of the court, he did show a pretty good ability to utilize this tactic. I’d love to see him do more of this in the future, as the best returners are pretty much hugging the baseline and you need this to win with minimized effort on hardcourt and grass. I’d also add, his deep return position was allowing Djokovic to serve and volley an awful lot, and Novak really was the one scoring off the dropshot in the non-cramp sets so Alcaraz will need to work on some other strategies. A good restful win for Djokovic, and a new wrinkle to the “how high will Alcaraz rise” debate. I don’t think too many people were really expecting cramps (to my knowledge it’s the first time he’s dealt with that on tour), and he had the momentum before they occurred.
One of the best things about majors is how long the players are out there. It allows for so many deviations in strategy and planning. Dumping sets to conserve energy, planning to sprint early then take a set off, and changes in strategy (holding back a bit of pace on serves early or playing frequent dropshots to take your opponents legs) can be really effective. Djokovic got the benefit of an interesting result here. It seemed like his defense was good enough to keep Alcaraz at bay but he wasn’t able to counter-punch. If this was by design, kudos to him and his team for allowing Alcaraz to punch himself out. If it wasn’t, it has at a minimum inspired other players to dig in on defense against Carlos now that they’ve seen the gas tank actually on E, which is tremendous for the tour since we’ve seen a few top guys fold against him already. The names on the trophies are less important than creating an environment where these guys can compete at their freest, because the sport won’t continue to grow unless the product is visibly enticing to the non-tennis public.
Djokovic Ruud should be a great match, the same way Swiatek Muchova was today. Ruud has yet to win a set against Djokovic in his career, but almost every single set has been confined to a single break of serve. That’s largely what I expect here. Ruud is good enough to compete with Djokovic for 75% of the match. Similar to the CA/ND situation that caused the cramps, Ruud is good enough to play Djokovic on even terms, but not really able to get out of trouble once he’s in it. Since Djokovic’s measured approach won’t wear himself out like Alcaraz’s did, this means a long match, with a vaguely assured result. This is good for Ruud for a few reasons. One, he won’t be distracted very often. When you’re going uphill but are a great competitor like Ruud, you don’t get caught up in the “what ifs” of an L or fret changes in the scoreline, you just keep an eye on how you’re doing out there. Trying different approaches, working on the spots you’re losing ground in, and communicating with your box constructively rather than complaining are useful, and keep you in the present moment. That’s a good place to stay for Casper here, because the crowd is very likely to get behind him. Djokovic is a beloved champion, but fans want to see a long match. If Ruud was considered an even contender here, he could almost enter villain territory, as fans would not want to see a great champion dethroned. Since he’s publicly regarded as a plucky underdog, he’ll have plenty of support.
Tennis-wise, the problem here is simple. Djokovic has the best backhand in tennis, and Ruud fights his off. He can create some great angles with it, and hits passes fairly well, but it’s a safe target for Djokovic which means the majority of shots are going to go there. We all saw how devastating a weapon the dropshot and forehand inside-in became for Alcaraz when Tsitsipas attempted to camp in his backhand corner, and I fear that Ruud will have similar issues in this match. This is doubly tricky because Djokovic’s backhand dropshots are much better and much more frequently attempted down the line. Ruud served well against Zverev, but he went out wide from the duece court a lot and Zverev never really punished him for it. Djokovic ropes these shots cross-court very well and he’s good at picking a few spots to up the aggression. If Casper is forced to abandon this serve, it’s a problem because it’s generally the best way to ensure that his second shot is a forehand. He plays well behind the pattern, but great returners (and great teams hello Goran) are likely to notice any significant lean on a particular serve. The odds at -450 indicate that Ruud will be competitive (because basically everyone watching is looking to bet on Djokovic at this point), but this would be the most surprising result that has occurred in tennis in a very long time. I think Ruud wins the same set via steady play and heavy hitting that Khachanov did, but it’s hard to see Djokovic struggling with patterns and opponents that he has already figured out. Djokovic in 4.

2023.06.10 20:18 Udaqa Pens (multi preferred) with metallic colored ink/gel?
Hello, pen enthusiasts!
I’m looking for recommendations for pens with metallic ink/gel colors, like gold, rose gold and silver. I especially like bolder lines, with a 0.7mm or 1.0mm tip.
As you might imagine from the specificity of what I’m asking for, I write a lot with pens, but don’t have a need of specific official colors. That said, a nice professional look to the body of the pen would definitely be nice.
I have not used a marker pen before but I’m not opposed to one at all.
My holy grail would be a multi pen with gold, rose gold, silver and black or grey. I figure this will be a custom job or some sort of DIY hack, but will definitely not be upset if it’s something I can simply purchase.
What do you all think?

2023.06.10 20:14 Armorwing01 Fan Servant: Berserker Roland
Real Name: Roland, Orlando
Source: Song of Roland, Orlando Innamorato, Orlando Furioso
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Magic Energy: C+
Mad Enhancement: -
See “Personal Skills” Below
Bitter Tears from a Love of Love: A
A variant of Mad Enhancement. He can quickly fall in love with a stranger, and is easily shaken when rejected. It’s possible to believe that being so easily rejected is not the fault of the skill but the person, but don’t think about it too much. In return for a weakness towards seduction-type skills and Noble Phantasms, he gains a variety of benefits. When under the Berserker Saint Graph, this Skill is constantly activated and operating at a higher rank, providing “+” modifiers to all Parameters except LCK but sealing another Skill. However, Roland is wild and rabid, blind with rage and only acting as an incarnation of destruction that a Master would struggle to control.
Diamond Body: A
A diamond body with a hardness of 10. Spears, swords, and bows are useless against him. However, there are always weaknesses with these types of legends, and in the case of Roland, that applies to the soles of his feet. How to attack the soles of one’s feet on the battlefield depends on your tactics. Sealed when under the effects of Mad Enhancement.
Monstrous Strength: B
Skill that temporarily grants a rank-up to one's Strength parameter for a time limit determined by the ranking of this Skill. A Skill normally possessed by monsters and beasts, Roland’s unnatural fury and madness was so great that he can temporarily rank up his strength that could uproot trees and swing them around and tear men apart with his bare hands.
Durandal: Ultimate Unbroken Hallow
Lauded for being unbreakable, it is often referred to alongside Excalibur as an indestructible holy sword. The golden hilt contains a number of rare relics that did not exist in Hektor’s time, making it extremely effective as a conceptual weapon. Roland being under the Berserker Saint Graph has morphed it into a darker great-sword he swings around with one hand but lowered the Rank of this sword, unable to preform the miracles it would be able to do if summoned as a Saber.
Motives and attitude towards the Master-
He is Mad, unable to rationalize or properly communicate with others, only able to form simple words and roar in furry and rage on the battlefield at his master’s command but his madness is so great that sometimes a command spell may be necessary to put him back on a leash. His hair has grown long and unkempt but hidden by the pitch-black helmet, armor, and cape that he has donned, however, each ascensions begin to strip parts of his armor away until he’s left nude.
lines for other Servants-
Hektor: “ANCESTOR!” Mandricardo: “DIIIIEEEE”
Berserker Lancelot: “ME!?”

2023.06.10 20:14 pipperspray Is this more than a phishing email?
I just received an email which looks like a puzzle. This is the email body:

Subject line: in look it for you were going to down I have checked email headers etc and doesn't seem like there's any information there apart from standard email headers.
It is weird to me because the first line seems to say "We must insure of the possibilities of.. " and the last line feels like "It is quite true that the surface on the occasion was...". Does anybody know what this could mean?
Further there is a PDF attachment on the email. File name is "Show RCD.pdf" and it contains picture of a girl posing like a dating site with a button saying "Open profile" in green button. The PDF is hyperlinked and points to this webpage: https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1VS3PyswqTrIvNDL3qwU-29xbzj9RJpIidth6n8aC-2Y/preview#cyyr7
Following the trace, I got to a piece of code which check if my device is a computer or a mobile. If it is a computer it redirects to "google.com
" and ends the trail and if it is accessed through a mobile site it comes to what appears to be a dating website. There is a page between the url redirects which also returns a lot of number in the HTML body which seem like they are in hexadecimal but cant say for sure. Does anyone have ideas how to decrypt this?

2023.06.10 20:13 Mr_multitask2 Please message RC on twitter your favourite stores & associates!
If you've received good, excellent, or exceptional service at your local GameStop store, manager, or online CS, tell RC!!
It's nice for CEOs to hear first hand things that need their attention and should be fixed, but it's also incredibly important that they are made aware of who is already representing the brand well, going above and beyond for customers, and who deserves praise.
The company had committed to rewarding front-line staff, and often these people have to deal with a lot of Karens, so it's important that RC hears by name the stores and associates that are responsible for growing sales and confidence in his company!

2023.06.10 20:11 b1g-boy Why is Google Care taking so long to respond?
So the screen on my google pixel 7 pro has a giant crack in it, and the screen is completly broken. It's unresponsive to touch, there is a big white line that crosses over the screen, and the bottom half flickers and doesnt turn on half the time. I'm paying 10 dollars a month for Google Care and filed a claim about a week ago and I still haven't heard back from them. How long does it typically take for them to respond? and is there a phone number I can call to get a hold of them?

2023.06.10 20:11 The_Real_Katakuri [Chatper 1086] Rested Review: Looking back
Ch. 1086 p1_2
The chapter starts with this color spread. Very colorful, very very clean. It's very readable. Every element, including water on the characters is easily understandable, the ground is beautiful and the puddles are even more beautiful. That's the good part.
I have three problems with the cover, though:
- Mugiwara pirates again and again and again. We've had some similar color spreads in the past and it gets to a point where they feel repeated, even if they aren't. I'm convinced most readers would prefer more different characters making it to the color covers.
- Franky's hairstyle. Because Franky wasn't horrible enough in last chapter's cover, Oda needed to find a new and even more silly hairstyle for Franky. I wonder if he's ever going to swallow his pride and go back to draw Franky either with his original hairstyle or the shaved style with which he came back after the time skip. Every single other hairstyle has been ridiculous and has only served to ridicule Franky.
- The perspective is completely messed up. The flowers in the top right part of the cover show peprfectly where the vanishing point is (in the middle of the image very close to the top). The vanishing point is the point where the camera is "looking" to, even if Oda likes to put it outside the image sometimes for artistic reasons. The thing is, every character on the ground (not Luffy), and most notably Nami, is drawn with very short legs as though Oda was trying to do a very high angle shot. And that doesn't make any sense accounting for the perspective of the background, but also because he's really only shortened their legs and not the rest of their body and it's very very weird. Look at Nami's legs and the umbrella. The umbrella isn't distorted but the legs are. That defeats the purpose of distorting the legs and it simply feels like she's a dwarf now.
In any case, the work on the reflections of every character in the puddles are awesome. Ch. 1086 p3
Last chapter ended with Wapol escaping from Pangaea castle with Vivi (and Kinderella?), and this one begins and they have already successfully left Mariejoise. Igaram, Pell and Chaka are searching for king Cobra and Vivi.
It isn't clear at all when is this happening:
- The same day as last chapter but later? Probably too soon since last chapter meetings were still held.
- Next day? Or the following?
- Many days since last chapter? Very unlikely that those three are still wandering at Mariejoise completely clueless. But later events will suggest this to be the case.
I find it very strange, regardless of time, that Igaram, Pell & Chaka haven't been dealt with by the nobles. It's not like they're hiding precisely. The way I see it, there are only 2 ways to proceed with them:
- Tell them "the king is here, please come" and kill them.
- Tell them about Cobra's death and frame Sabo as soon as possible in ortder to avoid suspicion.
If they aren't killed, and the nobles are not answering to their questions about the king either, anyone would connect the dots and imagine Cobra was murdered by the nobles.
Also, it's good that Igaram cares for Vivi, but what about caring a chapter or two earlier? What was more important for Igaram than protecting Vivi? What was he actually doing??
In fact, why was Vivi waiting for a Gondola to leave the Red Line when his father was just getting to a meeting with the Gorōsei?? Ch. 1086 p4
Wapol and Vivi are hiding in the Aegis' kingdom ship and arrange a way to go with Morgans. Good. That takes partial care of explaining how they ended up with Morgans. But the real question is how did left the Red Line? Did really no one go looking for them? It's ridiculous.
First the Revolutionaries show how anyone can infiltrate at Mariejoise and now multiple people show how anyone can escape as well. The humiliation is scandalous.
Wapol doesn't want to tell Vivi about Imu or his dead father because he's sure CP0 are trying to kill him. That doesn't make sense. If you're sure they're going to kill you you don't act in your future assassin's favor. If anything, trying to get as much attention as possible from the world is the way to go. It might fail, but there's a chance the attention could make Imu want to discredit Wapol rather than kill him and fuel the conspiracy theorists. Ch. 1086 p5
With the recent announcement about Oda having eye surgery and him saying he couldn't see properly, it would be reasonable to consider how that could have affected his ability to draw.
Let me tell you the truth about two things:
- People with astigmatism don't become functionally blind until they have surgery correct their vision. They wear glasses and that's the end of it. Surgery will make Oda not need glasses, but that's all. The astigmatism wasn't preventing him from drawing at all.
- Look at the cover again. Oda can draw really well when he wants. Look now at this page. It's difficult to know whether it's king Stelly in the first panel or not because he's as much of a scribble as Sabo's picture, that might be a legit scribble.
Spandam, Gismonda ans some other agents are lookinig for Vivi and Sabo, but not the former CP9 members, who had Vivi in their custody and lost her. Also, where's Rob Lucci and what's he doing? Is he completely ignoring his duty as well? Ch. 956 p9
So... Stelly was staring so hard at Vivi's poster that he didn't see Sabo's poster and couldn't listen to anything regarding the terrorist attack lead by his brother despite the whole Mariejoise was being searched for him. Interesting. Ch. 1086 p6
The gorōsei pick up the ringing den den mushi. This is the only relevant thing happening in this whole page.
The narrator puts emphasis on Cobra's death and Vivi's disappearance but not on the clash between the Revolutionaries and the admirals. Why is that? It's to bolster the retcon'd timeline. Ch. 925 p9 & 10_11
Remember that back in chapter 925, the highlight about the Reverie was the clash between the Revolutionary Army and the admirals. And it was said to happen during the 4th day of the Reverie. However, in this and the immediately previous chapters, events are happening during the 7th day (the last).
Another detail is that then the silhouettes indicated that the news included Sabo fighting the admirals, but during this recent flashback, Sabo didn't even met them. Ch.. 956 p4
Then, in ch. 956 Garp explains that the incident with Cobra happens after the Reverie ended. That clearly separates the operation of the Revolutionary army (4th day) and Cobra's death (+7th day).
At the same time, Garp says that happened after they left, and that it was reported to him even later. And asks Neptune and his family not to fear humans because of it.
This and Shirahoshi's reaction make sense only if they had no better reasons to fear humans, like Shirahoshi being assaulted a second time by Charloss, and if Shirahoshi bid farewell to Vivi while everything was fine and now she's surprised to hear that.
But that's not what the recent flashback tells us. Ch. 1086 p7
Contrary to last page, this one has mane things to consider.
Imu wants to "test" the "Mother Flame", a Vegapunk's invention, and the Saturn says they haven't had the chance to try it yet. Another gorōsei suggests a forest for the test but Imu wants "Lulucia" kingdom. The gorōsei show concern for the choice but at no point they question it.
We will see in the next page that they're talking about the weapon that destroyed Lulucia kingdom. And the first thing that calls for my attention is that the gorōsei look like complete amateurs here.
They've had a mass destruction weapon for "some" time, but haven't tested it yet. Can you imagine how many things could go wrong when trying new technology for the very first time? But don't be fooled, Imu doesn't want to "test" it. She wants to use it.
The gorōsei have been waiting with such a weapon in their power without testing it because...?? It's obvious that there must be a lot of places in the world were Imu, the gorōsei and the World Government in general should be perfectly fine with testing the Mother Flame, from certain uninhabited areas of the Red Line, to unaffiliated countries and from the top of my head, if anything else, Punk Hazard comes to mind. A government island they think is closed off because Akainu and Aokiji made it useless. It's the perfect place to test these kind of things. But they think they've had "no chance to try it yet". Sure.
In an attempt to defend Vegapunk from the undeniable increasing evidence of his evilness, I read some say the weapon is not "he Mother Flame" but "Uranus" and that the Mother Flame is only a power source.
That makes even less sense. First, because Imu clearly instructs to use the Mother Flame and not Uranus. And second because there's no way they can actually think they haven't had the chance to try a power source Ch. 1086 p8_9
Imu answers about the reason to choose Lulucia and the five gorōsei are formally introduced. And three things stand out to me:
- They're named after planets of the solar system (other than the ones already used lol) and at the same time, they're not. There's Saturn and Mars, but there's also Ju Peter and V. Nasjūrō, who read like Jupiter and Venus + japanese traditional name ending. And lastly there's Valcury, who by elimination and obvious similarity should reference Mercury, but this one is clearly different. And I wonder if this is Oda wanting to name the gorōsei after planets and at the same time being obsessed with being unpredictable.
- With this names two middle names are introduced: "Ju" and "V.". So far, only "D." has been a thing. It was odd enough if you think about it, but the fact that now two more exist and that they do so in order to not write the name exactly like the planet feels quite odd to me as well.
- What is this "warrior god" thing? What does that even mean for them? I mean, I understand what "warrior god" means, but what's an "agriculture warrior god" or a "finance warrior god"??
Has Jupiter ever waged war in the name of agriculture or something like that? I get it, it's something meant to assign specific roles to each of them despite they have acted like a council for 1086 chapters, but wouldn't it make more sense to be "finance god" and "justice god" instead without the "warrior" part?
Also, do they really have any authority over their "department"? Last page showed they are nothing but the butlers of Imu. It's difficult to imagine they have agency.
To me, this looks like the upteenth attempt at hyping us for nothing. First, people living in Mariejoise were titled "World Nobles". Then they were rebranded as "Celestial Dragons". And recently they've been rebranded again as "Gods". And for no reason and without explanation. Just the narrator coming up with new ways to extol them. But at the end of the day, words are just that and so far, even the gorōsei have only prooved (this chapter too) to be very incompetent.
Now that I think about it...
- Is V. Nasjūrō going to have problems because some countries are increasingly refusing to pay tribute? He's in charge of finances, right?
- Is Ju Peter going to be held responsible for the lack of food they're currently facing?
- Shouldn't Valcury have been the one to... Oh wait, we haven't gotten to that part, yet.
Imu says Lulucia has been chosen for proximity alone. So, officially, both the fact that Sabo had gone there and that the country had rebelled aren't the reason. I wonder whether Imu's answer is just a way of saying the gorōsei to not even ask for explanations and just obey or actually a whimsical and very plot convenient occurrence.
The gorōsei note the convenience of being able to use the Mother Flame "freely" and I'm sure they're not talking about authorization, because Imu rules the world, but about the cost. Certainly the Mother Flame must consume a lot of energy. If only they had some scientist trying to develop a troll-science self´-sustaining power source, right?
Well, they got one but they're very heeadstrong in killing him, for some reason. Ch. 1086 p10
We get to see the seraphim we hadn't yet seen. I don't think there's anything relevant in this page, but I've read some people arguing S-Croc could be a girl, you know, the old theory about Crocodile being originally a woman since Ivankov said he made Croc a huge favor, even though it could actually be anything else.
Personally I don't think S-Croc has particularly female traits in this image, but it's true that he has the same starry eyes as S-Snake, while S-Shark and S-Hawk do not (the others haven't shown their eyes). But if I had to guess, I'd put my money in Oda has decided to always have at least one gender-ambiguous character to troll the readers with left and right. Ch. 1086 p11
Sabo telling more of what we already knew and saw. Ch. 1086 p12
And this page is again, dedicated to justify the retcon'd timeline as though it was not.
Back in chapter 1060 (that's the beginning of this very arc, do you still remember what this is arc was about?), Sabo was at Lulucia when the annihilation happened. Ch. 1060 p13, 14_15 & 16
We saw him as we were only seeing Lulucia and its citizens being shot by the Mother Flame and also the call ending abruptly immediately after the shot.
Now, Sabo says he was near, but not exactly there. And tries to explain the ending call saying it was an indirect call that was "rerouted" through another den den mushi on Lulucia.
First I wonder how do you do that from a ship? It's true that the specifics about how den den mushi are operated have never been told, but regardless, if this "rerouting" were a thing, surely it would have come in handy to many characters through the story before.
Also, since when can Marines (or any third party) locate den den mushi? They have been able to intercept communications and listen to them, but not guess where was any of the snails making the call. And even if they could, given he himself says it was not an encrypted den den mushi, hence being vulnerable to interception, why wouldn't they locate the original signal from Sabo just like the one at Lulucia? Ch. 1086 p13
I don't remember Lulucia's name being romanized before, but it can be read in the ship's sail. It's written with a C (until another assistant thinks otherwise at least).
Sabo rules out living thing and natural disaster as the cause for Lulucia's annihilation and Ivankov pretty much implies Imu is someone from the void century who has lived this long because she's immortal thanks to the Ope Ope no mi.
Regarding Sabo's claim, I think we've seen all sorts of surreal things in One Piece to agree his assumption is very bold. A shadow in the sky is no indicator of no living thing or natural disaster. In fact we've seen shadows in the sky caused no more and no less by living beings and natural phenomena. Ch. 299 p12_13
On his part, Ivankov's assumption is also quite bold. Does a name really reference one single instance of a living being? There can only have ever been one Imu? What about one Oars?
There's also plenty of people known for their outstanding longevity like Kureha. (Interesting that this made me think of her...)
It's true that Ivankov accounts for the name being not truly a reason next page, but the fact that he implies it with this force under an argument he knows is very weak... This is just Oda telling us "this is this way because a character is saying it" or trolling us for fun. Ch. 1086 p14
Also, as I said last chapter, anyone can know of Imu and it was completely unreasonable of Imu not to tell Cobra about her, considering they were going to kill him no matter what and she said she was going to address his questions.
Could anyone else than Imu from 800 years ago be the one commanding the gorōsei? Why not? What kind of reasoning is that?
Next Ivankov makes his best guess of the day and claims Vegapunk must have created the Mother Flame (confirmed some pages ago by Imu). And it's now of all assumptions that Dragon intervenes to stop jumping to conclusions. Really??
"Vegapunk would never intentionally design a dedicated killing machine". What kind of joke is this?
- Mass-produced Pacifista model 1
- Mass-produced Pacifista model 2
- Mass-produced Pacifista model 3
And after this and out of absolutely nowhere, they speak of ancient weapons. This page and the previous one is some of the most forced text I've seen in One Piece. Ch. 1086 p15
For the final page of the chapter (yes, 15 pages only again, 2 of them cover), a new character makes his debut by sentencing to death Saint Donquixote Mjosgard.
He's named Saint Figarland Garling and is said to have been king of God Valley. Unlike everyone else, apparently, I'm not going to theorize about his relationship with Shanks, I want to talk to you about two other characters.
First, Dr. Kureha. Ch. 154 p8
She looks just like she was Garling's twin sister. It's interesting, because a couple of pages back the matter of longevity was brought up and now we see a world noble said to have been king of a land outside Mariejoise and outside the Red Line. As we've been told in a number of occasions (last one being last chapter), only the Nefertari family were founders of the World Government who stayed at their homeland. This means if Garling was actually king of God Valley and not just a descendant of the last king, he's from the void century. Not as an hypothesis like with Imu, but confirmed. Thus, the simmilarities with Dr. Kureha aren't just physical. Both have incredible longevity and I think it was worth noting.
Last, I want to talk about Garling's predecessor: Crescent moon Gally. https://preview.redd.it/pst3taqyc85b1.png?width=548&format=png&auto=webp&s=cd252883d36d4c0c3ae546f045bb46fead21c52e
He's the villain in the first version of the Romance Dawn oneshot that would later become One Piece. As you can see, The crescent moon motive in the hair is there just like with Garling (and the nose too). If you take the crescent moon out of the hat and apply it to the hair together with the beard, and change the mustache stretching to the sides for more hair to make it more exaggerated, you get Garling. Even the pose and facial expression is pretty much the one in this image.
Also, in his original name written in japanese, there's no indication of whether his name is "GaRling" or just "Galling".
And that would be... Oh! I almost forgot! Yeah... given Garling sentenced Mjosgard, where does this leave Saint Topman Valcury? Wasn't he the "Justice warrior god"? Why isn't he the one handing out justice? What other affairs regarding justice does he manage if not judging disputes among celestial dragons?

2023.06.10 20:09 rigca What do you use for occur?
Helm still seems to be the best, despite being older than consult-line.
- Pro: Word/symbol boundaries work as expected
- Con: Not incremental. Can't keep typing and have the occur buffer dynamically update.
- Con: Doesn't select the candidate corresponding to the current line at the time it was invoked. Leaves the point at the top.
- Con: Doesn't highlight all candidates, only the current
- Pro: Incremental
- Pro: Initially selects the candidate corresponding to the current line
- Pro: Highlights multiple candidates within a configurable number of lines, not just the currently selected one
- Pro: C-t to move the helm window around the frame. Very useful.
- Con: Number of candidates doesn't always match built-in Occur when using word/symbol boundaries.
- Con: Occasionally when jumping to a candidate it does not land on that candidate, but on a different line. Rare, hard to repro.
- Con: Does not respect completion-styles
consult-line (when paired with vertico)
- Pro: Incremental
- Pro: Word/symbol boundaries work as expected, matches Occur
- Pro: Respects completion-styles
- Con: Does not highlight multiple candidates, only the current
- Con: Can't dynamically move the completions window around like Helm
- Con: Neither value of consult-line-start-from-top does anything useful. When it's off the candidates before the current line get appended to the end, so the candidates are now out-of-order compared to the target buffer. Bizarre and confusing design choice. When it's on, it jumps to the first candidate, rather than the one corresponding to the current line, so you lose context.
- Pro: Incremental
- Pro: Highlights multiple candidates
- Pro: Initially selects the candidate corresponding to the current line
- Con: Slow to start on large buffers. Infuriating, deal-breaker.
- Con: Does not respect completion-styles
- Seemed slow, but did not thoroughly investigate. Appears to still be receiving updates judging by "Last-Updated" timestamps.
