Over the past few years I have had to contact Tomorrowland after every purchase because the website doesn't seem to handle US addresses correctly.
For those who don't know, the typical street address in the US will be something like 123 W Main St Apt 103. The Tomorrowland website insists on formatting the address as W Main St 123 103. I suspect if mailed out this way the shipments would never arrive, so I have contacted support after every purchase and they have manually changed it.
I guess I have a couple questions for US based attendees. Have you left the address as is and still received your package? When they ship it out do they actually put it in the correct sequence automatically? I don't want to waste support's time if I am worrying about nothing.

2023.03.29 11:41 Captn_Thatch Celtic and Rochester: A WoWsL Tier 7 Review

HMS Celtic

USS Rochester (CA-124)


These ships were given to me by Wargaming for review.
Welcome back. Sure, it does seem rather apt to jump into the first published review in sometime with the addition of two new Baltimores…well, one Oregon-City Cruiser, and another Baltimore. With both ships being so closely related, it seems fitting to tag them both together here. Per the norm, there will be lots of pretty charts, and a comprehensive breakdown of both ships; with the added benefit of showing exactly where these two wrap up into the bigger picture.
All stats are current to the best of my knowledge as of v5.1. Stats are subject to change in the future, and this review may not reflect those changes.
Celtic is a GREAT ship, with a MODERATE Skill Floor and a HIGH Skill Ceiling.
Rochester is an AVERAGE ship, with a LOW Skill Floor and a MODERATE Skill Ceiling.
Quite obviously, this review is going to be mostly centered on Celtic, with some Rochester slapped in there to show exactly how she stacks up to the competition. 2 for 1, or a freebie, you decide.
Nothing could honestly make me happier than to be able to bring reviews and writing to you all full-time. If this interests you and you enjoy reading my work, please support me if you can, as every little bit helps. My goal is to keep my reviews free and public for all to read; and by supporting my Patreon you can help keep me at my desk.

Matrix Rating


The design was first commissioned in the late 1930's, which adapted lessons learned from the preceding Wichita-Class and the currently under construction, lighter Cleveland Class. Baltimore's design featured an orthodox A-B-X configuration of 3 triple turrets of (8") 203mm guns. Fast and well-armed for the era, the fate of the project ended by cancelling later ships construction in favor of the Cleveland Class which were both faster, lighter, and quicker to build which meant more ships out at sea protecting US Navy Carriers. Baltimore Class Cruisers were built from 1941-1945 with some serving in various sub-classes until the 1970's.
With 14 completed ships of the class, the Baltimore-Class had the most constructed heavy cruisers built of any one class from nation during the war-time period. Generally considered a success, the class was preceded by the USS Wichita, and succeeded by the Oregon-City Class. With attached sub-classes, the Boston Class featuring the world's first Guided Missile Cruiser in the early 1950's USS Boston (CAG-1) and Flagship variations. The design was most notable for incorporation of surveillance radar, gun control fire systems which allowed for calculation beyond the horizon, 5'' Anti-Air, and 8'' Main Battery. This design was focused in on the ships ability to be a Carrier Fleet Escort Ship, capable of both Anti-Air Screening, Shore Bombardment, eventually being modified to serve as the world's first guided missile cruiser.
USS Baltimore (CA-68) herself was laid down in 1941, by Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation at the Fore River Shipyard in Quincy, Massachusetts. The ship was launched in 1942 and served until 1956 when she was decommissioned, and eventually scrapped in 1971. The ship served primarily in the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign, earning 9 battle stars.
HMS Celtic is a made-up ship that never actually existed but rests on the concept that would have been if the Baltimore Class had been sent to the Royal Navy. This was not an entirely foreign concept of the era either, with the two allied nations cooperating heavily with some ships being used by the other’s navy. It would be this cooperation that ultimately played a decisive role in every major theatre of World War 2.
USS Rochester (CA-124) was laid down in the same shipyard as her predecessor, in May 1944. She would be launched in August the following year, then commissioned into the US Navy in 1946. Succeeding the Baltimore Class, the Oregon City Class featured many similarities, with changes to her exhaust, superstructure and Anti-Air Suite. Rochester would serve throughout Korea and Vietnam, being decommissioned in the 1960s, and scrapped in the 1970s. 10 Oregon City Cruisers were planned, with only 4 completed.

The Basics

A Baltimore with a Super Heal and longer-range radar? Sign me up. Baltimore on her own is already one of the stronger ships in the game and in terms of utility, one of the stronger team players. Celtic takes an interesting concept and adds a new flair to an older line. She has her own strengths and weaknesses, all of which will be identified, some of which are likely to be seemingly splitting the finest of hairs. This ship has a bit less of a grudge against controlling caps than the traditional Baltimore but should be readily found in the same niche doing the same things, just slightly different. Radar support, anti-destroyer, area control are all tags that apply. Celtic is strong, strong enough to be thrown in with the likes of AL Baltimore, Mainz CE and Wichita CE.
Trashchester is tough. I’ll honestly do my best to not shred this ship into a bajillion pieces while pouring out the salt, but I’m only human. She was painful on release, and since she’s had work done, fitting for her review to be finally finished and published for you all to use as a dash of seasoning for dinner. On release, Rochester had a smoke fire concealment on par with her sister’s base concealment, meaning, her smoke was essentially pointless and served only to blind herself, and not her opponents. Lacking radar, Rochester presented as a clumsy self-blinding target unable to deal the things that engage her. What’s worse, Rochester trades her heal for her smoke, meaning, players are left purchasing a regular old Baltimore, with some fancy AA, or a deaf-mute without a heal. Yes. She was that painful; a concept that bumps in the worst of ways, both theoretically and in practice. While her concealment has been buffed, it’s still an awful kit as her smoke fire concealment is still too weak to present much of a force upon the caps. If we’re stuck to smoke firing spam, there are better ships than Rochester; even making good old Belfast 43 seem like a knight in shining armor.
Both of these ships do sport improved AP performance, in the shape of improved ricochet angles. We’ll tear this apart in the ballistic section, as per the norm. Baltimore’s ballistic performance has been studied quite extensively in the past, which has set up an excellent point of comparison.


Let’s start with the prodigal child and then work towards the bought rented mule. Celtic does well here, in terms of heavy cruisers (203mm) she sits nearer the top of the lists dropping more midfield when included with the rest of the pack. Apart from some of those silly DPM small caliber ships, Celtic packs a noteworthy punch. Rochester starts more midfield and holds her placing through the pack. For a 203mm cruiser, a 2s difference in reload is often enough to bump a ship up or down a rank, entirely. This translates to roughly 20k between the two, and about a full salvo difference.

Celtic has among the better AP DPM values for a 203mm armed cruiser, only being outclassed by ships with meatier AP. In terms of overall, Celtic sits more midfield. Her overall AP ballistic performance allows her to unlock more of this actual number than many of her counterparts.

Overall, there’s not all that much to crow about here. Rochester sits a bit lower on the charts than Celtic due to reload. Both have improved ballistics to offer compensation for a lack of torpedoes. The DPM numbers are at their worst, workable, and at best, functional, neither being awful nor spectacular. Celtic takes the edge due to better numbers overall.


The tell-all ballistic chart. Royal Navy Cruisers and US Navy Cruisers sport among the best AP performance in their respective classes and tiers. Celtic has among the best HE DPM numbers of the Baltimores, but takes a hit on her fire chance percentage. Rochester SHAP hits like a truck, along with her Baltimore cousins. Things get interesting here the more you study this chart, captains. Celtic has arguably better HE, but worse AP. Rochester has SHAP and excellent AP performance, but poor shell count. AL Baltimore once again takes the cake with the best “happy medium” of the bunch, sporting a decent shell count, SHAP with excellent penetration and a lower muzzle velocity introducing slightly higher arcs yielding much more forgiving angles on the receiving end…
What I can say definitively, is Baltimore SHAP has much greater penetration than the standard AP. Wichita leans on HE at range, and she has the numbers to back it up, Baltimore hardly ever shoots HE in practice which is backed up by her AP performance and penetration values. Captains, it would not be entirely erroneous in terms of gunnery to compare Stock Baltimore to Celtic and Wichita or Elite Baltimore to Rochester and AL Baltimore.
Ricochet (o) Fuse Time (s) Sigma Velocity (m/s) Projectile
Albemarle 45/60 0.033 2.0 814 AP
AL Baltimore 60/67.5 0.033 1.8 762 SHAP
Balti-Stock 60/67.5 0.033 1.9 853 AP
Balti-Elite 60/67.5 0.033 1.9 782 SHAP
Celtic 60/67.5 0.033 2.0 853 AP
Rochester 60/67.5 0.033 2.0 762 SHAP
Wichita 60/67.5 0.033 1.8 853 AP
Wichita CE 60/75 0.01 2.0 853 AP
The major and palpable difference in performance here is between Celtic and the native Baltimores, is that Celtic lacks SHAP. This means Celtic’s AP shells weigh less, which translates to depleting velocity and thus penetration values faster than the Baltimores heavier shells. Fortunately, Baltimore has some of the best AP penetration in her class which means that Celtic can afford to lose some raw penetration value before she begins to suffer. Rochester wins the AP argument here, while Celtic takes the HE side. It’s almost literally splitting hairs, and Baltimore Mains will feel right at home in either ship.
Fire Chance % HE Pen (mm) Shell Count Velocity (m/s) Projectile
Albemarle 17 33 43 814 HE
AL Baltimore 14 33 49 823 HE
Baltimore 14 33 45 823 HE
Celtic 10 33 54 823 HE
Rochester 14 33 45 823 HE
Wichita 14 33 54 823 HE
Wichita CE 14 33 54 823 HE
If you’re looking to start fires, grab Albemarle. However, this is about the only such category she takes. Celtic manages better with access to a shorter reload and better overall ballistic properties. Shell by shell, edge Rochester, overall, solidly in Celtic’s favor by a full 9 shells.


Neither of these ships sport torpedoes, so this section is predicably blank.


Let’s jump into the major category of defense. Celtic arguably may be one of the best, Rochester, rather mediocre. From the top.
Celtic has among the best effective health pools, just edging out Edinburgh with a chunky 66k. It’s worth pointing out Albemarle tops both with a mighty 78k, though most Albemarle tend to be much more passive alluding to a different playstyle entirely. Baltimore is considered “tanky” at 56k, and Celtic adds in a super-heal. I wouldn’t chance to say Albemarle is particularly tanky, but she can heal quite well. A Baltimore is tanky enough to access that 66k EHP and is a scary thought. Baltimore can take a punch, where Edinburgh relies on defense by trickery, clever armor schemes and angling, Albemarle by range and angle. It’s also quite worth mentioning that Celtic rests with 36,7k base HP, meaning on par with most Cruiser Lights. Captains, you will feel getting hit in Celtic. Kit with 9.9km radar, sonar, a super heal, decent armor, excellent AA and workable concealment…captains, this is a literal no-brainer. Celtic is a slightly different twist off some of the most competitive ships in the game.
Rochester is rather tanky like most of her preceding Baltimore cousins. She has the same armor scheme essentially, and similar HP/EHP values. While this would normally be good on its own, Rochester has an Achilles’ Heel. Rochester must choose between having smoke or having a heal, and outright lacks Radar. While she has defensive AA, this is mostly a living meme rather than consistently as effective in combat as Radar. As said before, in terms of smoke cruisers there are just better options some of which don’t involve sacrificing your heal, or even radar. This relegates Rochester to just being a rather average 203mm CA, with very slightly better AA and decent enough armor.
The ranking seems a bit harsh, but that’s generally the difference between the hunter (Celtic), and the hunted (Rochester). Rochester initially will feel getting hit less, due to a larger health pool however, the table quickly swings in favor of Celtic, which gets most of it back.

This chart below sticks to the USN and RN CA/CLs for now... At some point, this chart will include overmatch and juicy other details for all the cruisers, but for now, it is simple enough to get the point across. Most Cruisers have their critical spaces directly abutting the hull, others don’t. Cruiser armor varies widely and is worth looking at because there are absolutely ships with specific advantages worth exploring and exploiting. For now, let’s keep it simple.
As summarized before, the Baltimore Class has relatively good armor, while it has its weaknesses, is generally functional enough to get by. They are neither needlessly weighed down by their armor, nor under-armored. It’s worth saying Rochester and Celtic have vaguely the same armor lay out and will handle 380mm Battleships.

Anti-Air Suite

Rochester takes the cake here, with better and larger AA guns she’s rather resistant to airborne pests. Celtic ties in with the close second, along with her sisters. The truly beautiful thing about either ship is that captains will not need to waste any energy into building this into making this sector a functional kit. Captains, you can save some defensive energy by focusing into Celtic’s Radar and by leaving Rochester in port. The magic number here is being north of that 350/s line, Azuma scrapes by with a bit of focus, where pretty much all the USN ships will laugh off aircraft. A major point of contention that is worth noting; Rochester is immune, Celtic is quite resistant to CVs, where Albemarle gets by here, and Edinburgh is rather hindered. I suspect this will be massively impactful for competitive players.

Rochester takes the cake here, because everyone deserves to be really good at something. However, with CVs it’s important to remember everything is relative.


Technically these are the same values while stock, and their rating is the same. However, this is quite deceiving. Rochester is GOOD leaning on GREAT where Celtic is GOOD leaning on AVERAGE. The reason for this follows their available commanders, which Shelly Beapley offers a unique 4th row concealment skill unavailable to any other commander, or nation. The result of this, Rochester, like her cousins sits at a comfortable 9.3km, where Celtic sits at 9.9km. Rochester can do almost nothing with this concealment, as she lacks radar, and her smoke fire window is just a pale 1.7km below her surface concealment. However, that .6km is a palpable difference and can open huge strategic windows; particularly once south of that magic 10km line.
The obvious connotation here is that hiding a radar cruiser inside 10km is far scarier than hiding a smoke cruiser inside 9.5, provocatively when that same smoke cruiser can be spotted inside her smoke at 7.6km. Captains, this 7.6km is on par with her sisters, however, this is a very narrow margin even for a support cruiser. Smoke is infinitely easier to use than radar, however, infinitely less forgiving.

Celtic sits almost smack dab of the upper midfield pack of heavy cruisers where Rochester sits more towards the end of the pack. Rochester feels clunky and handles like it, where Celtic feels more “native” to her respective class sharing the same stats. While this is rated good overall, its more average in the face of Lighter Cruisers, representing more of a bang-for-the-buck scenario.

Celtic essentially has one commander that is head and shoulders ahead of the rest, while the rest kind of just work. HotRod offers the best fit here inarguably, along with Radar Edinburgh and Radar Minotaur. This sets Celtic up to be a near par build with the USN CA Queen Shelly Beapley. While her 4th row skill’s absence here is certainly felt and results in a 9.9km concealment, the build is largely similar and works well for any radar focused cruiser. While there are other builds out there, this is the gem of the lot and helps unlock that sacred mantra of utility that surrounds the Baltimore Class. Inspirations should focus on concealment, Mikawa and Swirski, to bring Celtic’s detection to pair with her Radar.
Nothing can be easy with Rochester, and naturally, building her was to the same effect. Essentially there are two trains of thought for this ship, build into dispersion or build into utility.
AL Montpelier seemed to mesh the best, which then turns Rochester into a little flamethrower capable of merging all her shells into a single pixel. However, this build is rather finicky to use and has a fair number of weaknesses. The build heavily relies on team spotting and is itself a second-line cruiser. Something like a 19-20% fire chance and a nasty dispersion circle. Rochester already has excellent gunnery performance as discussed; Montpelier really sharpens the sword. Pair with AL Scharnhorst and Scott to reduce dispersion and sigma, respectively, even further.
AL Montpelier
It's a rare day when Shelly gets sat down in favor of another commander in the USN CA tree, but I kept falling into the same pitfalls using the same build for similar ships often being able to use radar. Shelly will help bring out Rochester’s utility, but she’s arguably not as well fit in on Rochester as AL Montpelier is. Pair Beapley with concealment inspirations from Mikawa and Swirski and enjoy a very beautiful 9.3km concealment. Rochester has SHAP and excellent penetration values, meaning she can readily ambush and critically strike ships quite larger than her, all without torpedoes.
Shelly Beapley

  2. Sonar: 3km Torp, 4.2km Ship detection. Lasts around 98s when kit with Hot Rod and reloads in 132.
  3. Radar: 9.9km range and lasts about 28s when built.
  4. Heal: 733/s over 20s. Yep, that’s over 14k HP. Reloads in less than a minute too.
Celtic has a near ideal consumable suite. There are some differences off the mainstream, such as slightly less sonar range or shorter radar duration. Glossing over the minor differences, the bigger picture reveals something better. Built, Celtic can regenerate a LOT of health.
  1. Damage Control: Standard, unlimited. 60s cooldown.
  2. Defensive AA: +200% average AA damage. This is memes, it's sort of like a bug zapper for planes.
  3. Sonar: Standard 3.3km/4.4km detection over 96s. The average sonar found on everything.
  4. Smoke/Heal: 30s duration, 104s dissipation time for the smoke. 251/s over 28s for the heal.
Rochester is rather standard in her access to her consumables, with the killer choice between smoke or a heal. I’ve gone back and forth, generally landing on the heal. Rochester is essentially a decent cruiser hampered by her rather average consumable suite.


  1. Aiming Systems Mod 1: -7% Dispersion
  2. Steering Gears Mod 2: -20% Rudder Shift
  3. Concealment Mod 1: -10% Detectability
  4. Main Battery Mod 3: -15% Gun Reload
Ok, so the modifications section is super easy because both ships share the same builds. Aiming Systems mod 1 for the dispersion, player’s choice on slot 2 with either propulsion mod 2 or steering gears mod 2. Concealment Mod 1 for slot 3 and finishing off slot 4 by increasing DPM with main battery mod 3.




Celtic is a joy. Rochester is work.
I can see Celtic becoming a popular contestant in competitive play with the access to that 9.9km radar and her super heal. I rather lamented her HE performance, more due to her lower fire chance then her DPM or ballistic performance. While it would be nice to see her have ¼ pen HE, she doesn’t need it. I find her nicely balanced and well measured to take on Tier 7. She is just unique enough to warrant her own review, whilst similar enough to stay nearer the beaten path. While she may not comfortably and outright usurp Wichita CE and AL Baltimore from their spots, she’s worth mentioning with the group. That’s saying something.
Rochester, well, let’s just say that not everyone can be the best. This ship is tough but can be rewarding in a sense of overcoming the demands of a challenging ships. My issue with Rochester is 2-fold, her smoke and her heal. She ideally needs both to function in this current meta, and running the ship’s gimmick leaves her with abysmal EHP in a plummet from pretty good to 3rd worst overall, which only trumps Harbin and Bayard while being out-healed by Weimar. With a smoke-fire penalty in the mid 7’s km, smoke is hard to use effectively that is not relegated to back line, HE spam. As said before, if we’re really going to be stuck to this, there are ships which do this better. While I love the perspective of a USN CA without radar just to offer something more unique, a USN CA without Radar is like a cart without a horse. Hilariously enough, Rochester seems to avoid CV games like the actual plague, so I suppose that’s one strong point. Otherwise, and largely, captains are left with a rather average 203mm CA.

part 2 on my journey to resize a exfat partition i tried using gparted live from a usb stick, however for some odd reason neither of my linux machines was able to flash or burn the image to the jump drive. i tried both usb writer, as well as etcher, they both completed but were not usable. Now on my windows laptop i can flash using rufus flawlessly ....... yes yes yes i know this is not windows so things are going to be different, and i need to change how i think to do similar tasks on linux, but i know for a fact that that you can flash a usb stick on lunux ......... sorry for rambling on im new to linux and dont have much experience asking for help in forums, i hope this is enough information to atleast get pointed in the right direction
thanks in advance -mike

2023.03.21 15:42 coolingnow A “Proof of Concept” Action On Adding Bluetooth Support to the Xiegu G90 HF Transceiver

(Shared by Ed Durrant's blog. View more details: https://www.radioddity.com/blogs/all/adding-bluetooth-support-to-the-xiegu-g90-hf-transciever)

A “proof of concept” action.

First, it is important to define what we are doing here. Some modern radios have Bluetooth built-in so that they can be operated remotely. The G-90 does not.
I want to add such control to the XIEGU G90 (this may also work with the X5105 model as well, but this has not been tested). I do not intend to open the radio case, rather I will add standard external modules that are available over eBay and other online retailer sites. There are two parts to this action.

Audio via Bluetooth.

The first stage is to get audio to and from the radio from some Bluetooth enabled headset or earpiece, as used with many Smartphones these days. I expected this should be the easy part of the solution while there are many standard solutions available for this that can be purchased for a few dollars/Euros/pounds. Unfortunately, this part of the solution caused me the greatest problems as the issue with the common units is that they operate as a transmitter or a receiver needing to be manually switched between the modes or even they only operate one mode at a time by a cable being inserted into one or other socket. This is not going to work with a Bluetooth Headset (note we need to use a Headset, not Headphones – a Headset is Headphones with a microphone). The Bluetooth electronics in Smartphones have this “duplex” capability but to find an external adapter with the same capabilities is not easy. Investigation showed that “aptX” support can supply what is required to handle audio going to and coming from the headset at the same time but even an adapter that says it has aptX (often one that also has NFC) isn’t always one that will handle two-way audio! The alternative using two BT adapters, one running as TX and the other as Rx path, will not work as the headset is designed for use with a smartphone and hence a single (duplex) channel.
The audio connections (ought) to be the simpler part of this project – it seems not to be the case!
I gave up looking at the direct adapter solution when I saw that an audio plus PTT solution is already available for HTs. These kits include adapter, earphone/headset and PTT button are not cheap, so shop around but make sure you are buying the complete kit and not just the earphone at the advertised price, which is not always clear!
The ideal would be just to buy the “HB-6A” adapter in the middle of the picture above and I did eventually find one company selling just that at $25 plus P&P after I had ordered a complete kit. Prices for the same kit can vary from €29 to €90! The headset alone costs €13.95. Shop around and the “kit price” from several AliExpress and eBay sellers is around €40 including tax and shipping. Of course, if you don’t already have a Bluetooth headset that you wish to use, then the one in the kit might be fine as it’s supplied to use with the adapter in a communications mode. I already had an over the ears BT headset, so now I have both Headset and earpiece/microphone.
After wiring this set via 2.5mm and 3.5mm stereo jacks to the ACC socket mini-DIN plug, pairing the headset to the unit and testing, I found two problems.
  1. I had no audio coming out to by Bluetooth headset or earphone. This was simply solved by switching the output from the Internal speaker in the G90 to the ACC socket in the system menu. This is reached by pressing the button once so that the orange light comes on and then the button on the right-hand side of the radio, twice and then using the main tuning knob to change the setting from SPKR to LINE. You can also access the levels of the line input and output in these menus and I suggest you set both of these to their top value of 15.
  2. Then the microphone level was far too low. As I have wired to the ACC socket – it expects computer level (1v peak-to-peak) audio, whereas the HT, where this BT adapter would normally connect to, would be expecting electret microphone level audio. Now I could wire up an inline RJ45 connector and feed the audio into the microphone socket of the G90 but I decided rather than doing that I would add a small €3 LM386 amplifier module that is normally used with Arduino projects.
This has the advantage of having a volume control, so I can set the audio input level correctly.
The first test of this modified set-up was fine up to about 3 watts but after then there was constant output indicated even when I wasn’t talking – RF Ingress! So I added a parallel pair of a 0.1 (104) and 0.01 (103) µF ceramic capacitors across the input and output of this pre-amp module and a 0.1 (104) µF capacitor directly on the mic connector on the 3.5mm jack socket, to the ground (earth) connection on the 2.5mm jack socket and with my next test… No RF Ingress – all levels were quiet until I spoke then the output meter indicated full scale on 20 watts. I suspect I will need to back the gain off a little now H.I.
A total surprise was that after pairing the little PTT button that also came with the audio adapter set, it worked straight away with no issues at all, meaning I can use this rather than the PTT option in the remote-control app (more about that app below).
To avoid always having to unplug the module to charge its internal battery via a micro-USB cable, I added a regulator board designed for the Raspberry Pi to take the 8 or 9v coming from the G90 ACC socket down to 5v for the mini-USB socket so that the Bluetooth audio module is constantly being trickle charged while in use. This supply also has a spare micro-USB plug to charge the PTT button unit when needed.

CAT Control via BT.

The second part of the solution is to get CAT (Computer Aided Transceiver) remote control commands over a Bluetooth serial connection to the radio from the remote device.
Only by having a separate “remote control console” with the Bluetooth headset can the G90 radio be operated fully “cordless”.
The remote device and software to do the control work is not discussed in this article. You may have your own choices but my choice is to use an Android Smart Phone and the PocketRxTx software ($5/5 Euro/5 pound for the full version – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ro.yo3ggx.rxtxpro ). The software handles the CAT side of this project. In addition, the phone itself could also handle the BT Audio but I prefer to use a BT headset.
Background – ICOM has used a 3.5mm jack for their CiV CAT connections on their rigs for some time. Xiegu on models other than the X108G (which uses a micro-USB port) has also adopted the 3.5mm stereo jack along with a subset of the ICOM CiV command set for remote control of the radio. There is one important difference, however – the ICOM radios although fitted with a stereo jack, have Tx and Rx on the tip of the plug shorted together and don’t need a connection to the ring. The case is earth. Xiegu keeps Tx and Rx signals separate and uses therefore all three connections.
There are already BT comms adapters that plug into the ICOM rigs on the market and cost around 15 Euros from China.
Using the graphic for the HC-05 module and tracing the lines back, it is clear these are the Rx and Tx data input lines which both go to the 3.5mm plug, so this bridge needs to be removed so that we have TxD and RxD separate as supplied and needed by the G90.
As the voltage is regulated down to 3.3v by the carrier board, a supply of 5-9v DC is fine to power the dongle. Of course, I had to remove the full-sized DIN plug from the lead and fit a suitable mini-DIN plug and wire to the available supply pin from the G90s accessory socket. Later for the combined BT CAT and BT audio solution, the audio in and out wires was also connected through to the mini-DIN plug.
All good so far – now comes the tricky part. The G90’s serial port ONLY works at 19200 bps, so the module needs to be re-programmed from 9600 to 19200 bps before it will work. For this, you will need another small par-dollar interface board and some free software to do the speed programming change. Full details can be found on pages 4 & 5 of this document:
https://www.yo3ggx.ro/btcat/FT8x7\_DIY\_Bluetootth\_CAT\_interface\_v1.pdf Credit: Dan Toma YO3GGX.
After updating the serial speed of the dongle, I was able to control several useful functions of the G90 radio from the PocketRxTx App running on my Android phone.
The final combined design using modules for adding Bluetooth Audio and CAT connectivity to the XIEGU G90 and possibly other radios.
In line with using modules, as the Handy Talkie, BT audio unit runs from an internal battery that has to be regularly charged up and the BT-Cat module needs to be powered, we need to supply their required DC voltages. While the BT-CAT module is happy with the 8/9v that the G90 can supply over its ACC socket – the Audio interface only expects 5v onto its micro-USB charging port.
In theory, a very simple solution might be to insert a resistor from the G90’s 9v DC supply however as the load will change depending upon how charged or uncharged the internal battery is, it’s best to use a proper regulator.
Looking around I found the small board below, that is used to power a Raspberry Pi with 5v to its USB connector, so this should suit our needs quite well. The charging cable supplied with the HT-BT audio unit has one USB-A connector and two micro-USB connectors so one will be connected permanently to the HT-BT unit and the other I will leave available and accessible to charge whichever Bluetooth headset is in use or the PTT button.
The cable with the mini-DIN plug from this box plugs into the ACC socket on the rear of the G90 and the stereo 3.5mm jack into the data socket on the side of the head unit.
Note: do not plug the data connection in until the radio is operating as otherwise, the presence of a cable in this socket can cause the radio to think it is in the middle of a firmware upgrade and to set it back into normal operation can be difficult should this occur.
When starting the use of the Bluetooth adapters, the HT module needs to be turned on by a long press on its button – this is inconvenient as it means the clear plastic box has to be opened. Once devices have been paired to the HT-BT unit once however they automatically pair again when they are turned on. (for the first time pairing procedure, refer to the HT BT-adapter documentation that it is supplied with (a magnifying glass may be needed).

Improvements planned.

The intention of building everything into the clear plastic box was always going to be a temporary solution. The use of the 2.5 & 3.5mm sockets on the HT-BT unit and its need to be turned on manually every time it is needed are two non-ideal situations. In a hope to resolve this into a better final solution, I have ordered an inline cable connector that has the stereo sockets in the correct spacing for the HT-BT unit and I have decided not to trickle change the BT-HT unit but rather have it accessible in an elongated cable harness with plus one end into the ACC socket and the other into the G90s data-port so that adding Bluetooth to the G-90 will then be the addition of just one cable with a small box in its middle housing the audio pre-amp and the BT serial board.
The main thing is that the solution has been proven here – it is possible to add Bluetooth support externally to a Xiegu G90 using easily available modules and without any changes to the radio being needed.

2023.03.18 19:03 greenappletree Now that we are on the upswing I calculated how much a coin would be worth with a 1K investment if it ever reaches back to its all time high.

Updating this now that we are on an up swing again. The game here is if you believe that a certain project would ever reach is All Time High ( ATH ) again, how much would an 1K investment be if it every did.
One caveat here is ALGO since the ATH is a bit nebulous due to a spike price about 3 years ago so depending on who you ask the ATH was more recent than that.

2023.03.01 00:41 SignificantWorth7569 My Muse Countdown: Part 4 (Song Rankings From 110 to 96)

For whatever reason, when it was announced my favorite band Muse would be releasing their 9th studio album - Will of the People - on August 26th of last year, I decided to start ranking each and every song I've heard of theirs. After listening to their most recent effort several times through, I think I'm ready to release my months-long project unto the masses. Before I do, please note that I've included everything from singles to B-sides to covers to instrumentals to demos, but did not include live jam-sessions, preludes, or demos which are shorter than a minute in duration. Also, every song listed is my favorite rendition of it. For example, if Muse had a song called "Probe Me Please," and there were multiple versions of it, I'd naturally only list my favorite of the bunch - the full-body rendition. Lastly, I know we'll have differing opinions here and there, but let's try to be respectful toward one another. I've spent a lot of time on this and attempted to make it fun by adding bad jokes or puns; random, yet humorous tangents; and/or interesting tidbits for each song. So, here it is - the longest, funnest (yeah, I'm going to call that a word), bestest (that's going to be a word today too) Muse countdown in history. Dun. Dun. Dun.
  1. Fury (7.1/10): While I don’t feel as highly about this track as it seems many other Musers do, it is a good song – the chorus especially. Well, crap, I can’t think up any clever wordplay for this song at the moment. Makes me mad, furious almost.
  2. New Kind of Kick (7.1/10): If you want to see how ridiculous Muse can be, watch this video. They (especially Matt) fully embrace their dorkdom. No matter how goofy the music video is, though, as the kids nowadays like to say, “This song slaps harder than a…” Okay, I’m going to stop right there. I guess the saying is just, “It slaps.” Good to know.
  3. House of the Rising Sun (7.1/10): I don’t care for all the changes the band made to this song, but to Muse’s credit, they made it their own. Matt’s voice is soulful and powerful throughout, which takes it to a level it wouldn’t have otherwise gone. But enough about covers! Let’s get back to the originals, such as…
  4. Feeling Good (7.1/10): Well, shit. We’ll have to wait another song. This tune has been covered so much, I’m going to call it the hypothermic nun. On that note, Muse’s hypothermic nun is superior to all others. Just sayin’.
  5. Boredom (7.1/10): I always found it interesting Matt and the guys consistently listed Nirvana as one of their influences, for I never heard much resemblance between the two bands’ sound. That was until I reached this track off the Newton Abbot Demo sessions. Here it is, the one song Muse has done which reminds me a great deal of Nirvana. Even the song title sounds Nirvan-ny (just sound it out; I’m gonna go with it). Nirvana released “Dumb” in ’93, so Muse releasing “Boredom” in ’97 makes sense if we’re going to approach things from that nonsensical angle.
  6. The Groove (7.1/10): There may not be a more apt title to a Muse song in existence. I’m not trying to be punny here, but seriously, the first time I heard that opening riff, the first word which came to mind was “groovy.”
  7. Good News (7.1/10): Here is the best Newton Abbot Demos sessions track which never got released as at least a B-side (under the original or a different name), in my opinion. That’s the good news. The bad news is that, unless you’re like me and addicted to Muse like Dane Cook is addicted to telling hour-long jokes with punchlines which appear to have originated on Laffy-Taffy wrappers, chances are you won’t get to hear it. It kind of sounds like Muse’s take on old-school Green Day. When I say “old-school,” I don’t mean Dookie; I mean 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours and Kerplunk. Yes, those albums exist; yes, I own them in disc form; yes, I’m old; and yes, I’m going to stop answering questions I wasn’t asked.
  8. Map of Your Head (7.2/10): If there’s a lighter song in the Muse catalog, I’m not aware of it. That is, unless we want to take “lighter” literally. Would a map of your head or a newborn be lighter on average? These are the things a single father thinks about on a Friday night…
  9. Explorers (7.2/10): It starts off like a lullaby; ends like a Christmas jingle (AKA a Jingle By Christ’s Lull); and is beautiful throughout. An underrated Muse track, which I find myself listening to more now than I did upon the album’s release.
  10. Madness (7.2/10): Alongside “Uprising,” this is probably the band’s biggest hit in the U.S. thus far. While it’s a good song and the final third of it is arguably as dynamic and goosebump-inducing as any other portion of a Muse song, I never cared for it quite as much as the seeming vast majority. Yes, I suppose that makes me mad in the minds of many.
  11. Do We Need This? (7.3/10): I don’t hear many refer to it as such, but this is a pretty prog-rocky number – especially for an early B-side. It starts off fairly slow and eerie, before continuing to build to a couple of head-bopping breakdowns. So, yeah, I think I answered the question. “Do We Need This?” Absolutely.
  12. Shrinking Universe (7.3/10): A good song, but I personally don’t get why fans love it so much. If it weren’t for Matt’s incredible falsetto between 2:09 and 2:39, it’d just be an average, run-of-the-mill song, in my opinion. Sidenote: Some voices in my head have told me this is what body-building nymphomaniacs tend to say after years of steroid use: “My universe is shrinking!”
  13. Megalomania (XX) (7.4/10): I was never much into the original, but the XX rendition made it pop for me like it never had previously – so much so, I now crave more organ-driven Muse songs. There’s also just something devilishly delicious about writing an organ-driven song which is anti-church. It’d be like a herd of elephants destroying the Republican Party – yes, a group of elephants toppling a bunch of dumbos…
  14. Uno (Remastered) (7.4/10): Good riff and passionate vocals, but the mediocre chorus will prevent this tune from ever being number 1 in my book.
  15. Coma (7.4/10): Leave it to Muse to write an upbeat song called “Coma.” Well done, mates. Well done.

2023.02.28 02:43 yaco06 Headsup: Kubuntu KDE upgrade apparently just went south

Update: by now, 11.20 GMT, this issue looks solved.
I've just ran two upgrades - different machines with 5.27.1 - with Backports PPA enabled, and everything upgraded well, no apps to be deleted as it happened before.
This is a heads up, be cautious when blindly upgrading KDE in Kubuntu, at least for the next hours. I think something got really wrong when they assembled some new packages.
So, I have just erased KDE from the disk, fully, and I've just left behind the standard Kubuntu repositories, no beta, no backports, nothing. But I just get an error when I run "apt install kde-plasma-desktop"

"libkf5texteditor5 : Depende: ktexteditor-data (= 5.98.0-0ubuntu1) pero 5.103.0-0ubuntu1~ubuntu22.10~ppa1 va a ser instalado
E: No se pudieron corregir los problemas, usted ha retenido paquetes rotos."

Yep, that's some spanish, but you get the idea.
The thing gets even worst if I add the Backports PPA (running the same command)

"Los siguientes paquetes tienen dependencias incumplidas:
baloo-kf5 : Depende: libkf5solid5 (>= 5.103.0~) pero 5.102.0-0ubuntu1~ubuntu22.10~ppa1 va a ser instalado
dolphin : Depende: libkf5kiowidgets5 (>= 5.91.0~) pero no es instalable
Recomienda: ffmpegthumbs pero no es instalable
Recomienda: kdegraphics-thumbnailers pero no es instalable
Recomienda: kio-extras pero no es instalable
kate : Depende: libkf5kiowidgets5 (>= 5.79.0~) pero no es instalable
kde-baseapps : Depende: keditbookmarks (>= 21.12.0) pero no es instalable
kde-cli-tools : Depende: libkf5kiowidgets5 (>= 5.102.0~) pero no es instalable
Recomienda: systemsettings pero no es instalable
kde-plasma-desktop : Depende: plasma-workspace (>= 4:5.25.4) pero no es instalable"

Maybe it's just me, but there you've got a headsup, hopefully is just my installation, but now I'm running entirely from XFCE, not even having kde apps available on disk
(but most of them wouldn't be working or present in the disk: I discovered something went wrong when I was trying to launch Konsole - got deleted somehow after the first "apt full-upgrade").

2023.02.24 13:44 PoorMetonym The Selective History of Anti-Atheist Propagandists.

Well, duh, you might say. But I think this represents a wider, more serious problem within anti-intellectual spaces about historical revisionism. "History is written by the winners" is a known aphorism, but I don't think enough people consider its implications in full, or the related idea that history is framed by the ideology and biases of the person telling you it.
It's hard to be neutral, and I won't pretend I'll always be when reporting history, but there's a line between recognizing that, and doing it shamelessly. Worse still is when authority figures do it - growing up in the United Kingdom, the way we were taught history, up until you're doing it at A level, say, which is entirely optional, is extremely Anglocentric. For example, when learning about the Napoleonic Wars, generally all we hear about are the Battle of Trafalgar (1805) and the Battle of Waterloo (1815) because of Britain's involvement and victory, giving the impression that Napoleon had a serious losing streak, despite his near invincibility up until his invasion of Russia. As a result, Britons grow up with a completely distorted view of history, not helped by our current nationalist government attempting to imply that Britain can do so well on its own, and has always done, never mind how much our quality of living is plummeting.
Nationalist pseudohistory can have even more egregious results in countries like Japan, Turkey, and Russia. But one variant that rarely gets challenged, probably because of the nearly global stigma of irreligion (and the emphasis of 'cultural Christianity' in heavily irreligious countries) is the historical revisionism that paints non-belief as black as possible. The term 'atheist' itself has historically been used pejoratively, and how often have you heard apologists insist 'Atheist regimes have killed the most people!' It's especially rich when they insist upon looking at the nuances and complexities of conflicts intertwined with religion (which I'd agree with - conflicts are rarely down to just one cause alone), but give the sweeping declaration that any conflict between Marxist-Leninists and anyone else (though they make an exception for World War II, it seems), is 'evil atheists persecuting those poor God-fearing heroes!'
There are many responses one could put to this - I mean, we could be just as reductionist and play the numbers game too, and point out that the deadliest war of the 19th century (The Taiping Rebellion of 1850-1864) was caused by Christianity and killed between 20-30 million people. Ah, but, the apologists say, that number accounts for all casualties, including those of the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom, and Hong Xiuquan didn't act like any modern Christian, he thought he was Jesus' brother! Sure - there are nuances. So, if we agree with that, why not take the same critical look at the casualties of these so-called 'atheist regimes'?
Let's start with Stalin - he was an atheist, and the Soviet Union endorsed state atheism. Calculating the exact number of deaths he was responsible for is difficult, due to lack of consensus on exactly what deaths he's responsible for. Before the access of the Soviet archives in the 1990s, estimates were put at around 20 million, but in 2011, historian Timothy D. Snyder suggested that it was closer to 9 million, with 6 million as deliberate killings, based on data accessed since the 90s. Now, the link I provided wasn't to the most cast-iron source, it was all I could find in a pinch, but if, as suggested, Stalin's death toll was lower than that of the Taiping Rebellion, should that matter? When it comes to polemics against religion or atheism, shouldn't motivation be more important? Well, the majority of these deaths can be put down to famine, which was caused by the forced collectivization of farms, an ideological action enforced against evidential problems, and one very difficult to argue that atheism was an indispensable part of. Or, in the case of the Holodomor, anti-Ukranian sentiment can be said to play a huge role, something that current leader of Russia has proved is not inherent to atheists either.
And what about Stalin's Great Purge, where he disposed of so many political enemies? A good chunk of them were, naturally, also atheists, including Leon Trotsky. Yes, around the 1930s, Stalin also pushed for more persecution of religious workers and organizations as well, but they were just one target of Stalin's paranoia and didn't make up the bulk of his killings. If this needs to be more obvious, consider when Marxist-Leninist states opposed each other, such as the Khmer Rouge's war against communist Vietnam, or indeed when Marxist-Leninist atheist leaders actively relaxed their grip on power to allow for religious freedom (such as Mikhail Gorbachev and Alexander Dubček). There's a lot more nuance here, and the crucial point is that so much of this nuance goes directly against many propagandists' main claim.
In Peter Hitchens' book The Rage Against God, he attempts to make the case that the deaths contributed to Marxist-Leninist states was inevitably linked with their rejection of religion: '(Atheists) have a fundamental inability to concede that to be effectively absolute, a moral code needs to be beyond human power to alter.' [pg. 103]. And that 'those who reject God's absolute authority, preferring their own, are far more ready to persecute than Christians have been...' [pg. 113]. But this is a complete (and I would argue, deliberate) misreading of the motivation of such killings. It's not because of a lack of a moral code, it's because of one far too rigid, dogmatic, and myopic, which is why it's apt to compare Stalinism with theocracy, more than with secularism.
This revisionism continues when the French Revolution is discussed - everyone likes to talk about the horrors of the Reign of Terror, including Edmund Burke, who liked to cite it as an example of the evils of any revolution, conveniently forgetting that there was a whole host of reasons for the unpopularity of the Ancien Régime, among many people of diverse opinions, and that Robespierre was neither an atheist nor a secularist, advocating the implementation of his deistic cult as the state religion. When discussing the French Revolution, too many people also miss out on how revolutionary France was the first European state to give Jews equal rights as citizens in 1794 (perhaps because modern advocates of so-called Judeo-Christian values like to pretend that Judaism and Christianity always lived in harmony), or the disgusting actions of the theocratic Bourbon Restoration under Charles X (not the first Bourbon monarch), a believer in divine right, who advocated press censorship, the death penalty for sacrilege, reduced the franchise, and a war against Algeria that many modern commentators have considered genocide. History is imperfect, humans are imperfect, and their regimes are imperfect. The lack of fundamental difference between overtly religious, non-religious, and anti-religious regimes is in the favour of atheism, I feel, as it seems to suggest no divine hand is over anything.
Being able to dissect this propaganda with knowledge is vital, given the persecution of the irreligious continues today - when different religions do get along, it's usually to target the godless (and anything they see as part of that, including sexual freedom, freedom of conscience, and rights for LGBTQ people) - both the Kremlin and Chechnya will view the war in Ukraine as a holy war against the godless West, just using different religions to justify it.
To defend the godless, we need to embrace inquiry, nuance, knowledge, and the access to it, as well as acknowledge we always have more to learn than we might realize. It's the way we combat the ignorance and prejudice inherent to historical revisionism.

2023.02.19 12:12 EliotGl Kdenlive 22.12.2 (appimage/flatpak) crashes when switching between clips with any kind of effects in the timeline (Linux mint 20.3)

I recently started experiencing a frustrating issue on my Linux mint 20.3 (cinnamon). Kdenlive 22.12.2 constantly crashes when switching between two clips with effects in the timeline.
Steps to reproduce:
  1. add any 2 clips to the timeline
  2. add any effects to both of the clips
  3. click on one clip and then on the other
  4. crash :/
The last four lines of output say:
deleting collapsibleeffectviewterminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::out_of_range'what(): _Map_base::atAborted (core dumped)
The crash occurs with appimage, stable apt release and flatpak all versions 22.12.2. the old apt version seems fine
I've also tested on two other fully updated mint 20.3 (cinnamon) machines. None of them get the crash. It seems exclusive to my computer. Launching .exe version with wine works without any trouble as well.
Does this problem run deeper than Kdenlive? If so, this might not be the place to ask for help, but it's the only starting point I can think of.I am desperate
UPDATE: I decided to test the bug on the same machine but with a different desktop environment. Kdenlive seems to work absolutely fine with KDE Plasma, so it seems the issue is caused by Cinnamon rather than by Linux mint.
I also tried upgrading Linux mint; the issue is still present.
So my current setup looks like this:
Operating system: Linux Mint 21.1 Cinnamon
Cinnamon version 5.6.7
Linux kernel version 5.15.0-60-generic
Also, here is some kdenlive debug info:
Kdenlive: 22.12.2Package Type: appimageMLT: 7.13.0Qt: 5.15.8 (built against 5.15.8 x86_64-little_endian-lp64)Frameworks: 5.103.0System: Linux Mint 21.1Kernel: linux 5.15.0-60-genericCPU: x86_64Windowing System: xcbMovit (GPU): disabledTrack Compositing: frei0r.cairoblend
UPDATE: When I run the appimage with sudo and it works without crashing. At this point I have no idea what's going on

Webcam performance on pi4 with official pi camera v2 - problem, and solution

Update: turns out the pi 4 OS my octoprint was running on was using firmware known to have wifi issues. Specifically, the file brcmfmac43455-sdio.bin was version 7.45.206
( strings brcmfmac43455-sdio.bin grep 7.45 )
and this firmware was causing extremely slow local upload speeds. After apt upgrade (a long process) it went to Linux octopi 5.10.103-v7l+ which used, yep, later firmware...
lesson: don't just update octopi, update the OS as well.

Maybe I configured things wrongly however I could never get more than 4fps out of the default raspi camera setup and worse, it would also clog the pi4 wifi so latency would rise sky high.
My camera is the official pi camera with fixed focus. v2 I think? I connect it with the HDMI converter https://core-electronics.com.au/raspberry-pi-camera-hdmi-cable-extension.html boards at each
end I hope that was not the root cause, nothing in those docs says they are any different to ribbon cable connect, and its still ribbon cable connect on the pi.
anyway.. to go on..
installed ustreamer on the octopi the instructions work exactly like the current git page say: apt get a few minor things, clone the repo and make. At first there were still the same performance issues.
But this pi camera has native MPEG streaming. So why not use that? I disabled the octopi startup of the webcam and then ran
/usbin/v4l2-ctl -c video_bitrate=25000000
/usbin/v4l2-ctl -c compression_quality=80
/usbin/v4l2-ctl --try-fmt-video width=800,height=600 --set-parm=24
./ustreamer --host :: --format=MJPEG --device-timeout=5 --buffers=3 --desired-fps=24 -c HW -r 800x600
then played around visiting octopi.local:8080/ captured frame rate is revealed in a diagnostics link.
The key is format=MJPEG and -c HW this tells ustreamer to use the cam MPEG stream and don't do any work. I picked 24fps and 800x600 for bandwidth reasons, but it runs at exactly that speed and cpu usage is now nearly zero.. You can obviously pick from any of the official video stream sizes and frame rates the camera supports.
24 fps wifi cam stream octopi printing, 96% idle
Also since the URL and port is the same, octopi web pages and app still shows same webcam streams..
I think the original setup was taking pictures at 4fps and streaming that? It was also transcoding and using a lot of cpu.
I don't know if any of this is a wide problem, or was a specific problem with my setup. Since I didn't really do anything special I'm not sure why it didn't work out of the box.
TLDR: two problems were (a) could not get good frame rate and (b) high cpu usage by mjpg_streamer even when nobody looking at cam. Both solved with ustreamer.
My last octopi.txt attempt was
camera_raspi_options="-x 1296 -y 972 -fps 10 -quality 10 -ex auto -awb auto"
which didn't get 10fps.. max was 3-4fps.
says video mode is the default. If it was video mode, it wasn't working for my pi camera. If it is supposed to be using MJPEG it also wasn't and I don't see an option in input_raspicam to say what camera video stream to use..

2023.02.13 01:10 krystalR4369 eat healthy but feel fat?

This probably isn't the right forum to ask this question, but then where is?
For context, I'm Female, 28yrs, 5ft 2 and 108lbs currently
I have been feeling extremely fat lately. I started doing the SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) with my husband, who is doing it because he has Crohn's disease. I figured it would be good for me to do too, no one needs as much grain and sugar that we consume today and everyone could benefit from rebuilding good gut bacteria. The diet itself isn't that hard for me to do because the only thing I'm really cutting out is grain and sugar, (although I will mention that I don't cut out all sugar like my husband does. He's allowed to eat honey only, I still eat a little bit of dark chocolate, which is technically "illegal" on the diet.) The only other thing that I'm doing different on the diet is I am not getting meat, whereas my husband is eating much more meat than he even did previously. And I'm still eating beans, he is not.
The problem I'm having though is it seems to be that ever since I started the diet, I'm constantly bloated, I always feel fat and there always seems to be a "brick" in my stomach. I'm always constipated. Like I go to bed full, and I wake up feeling like I had just eaten dinner. My bowel movements have almost slowed down completely and I don't understand why because when I first started doing this diet with him I was losing weight and then all of a sudden it stopped. But around the same time, I also stop taking my antidepressant (by accident) and I am now weaned off if it. To stay full on this diet, I also increase my nut consumption, but I still only consume about 1-3 servings a day . I am aware of the fact that nuts are high in calorie and fat, but without them I would only be eating 600-800 calories a day . Im still not eating that many nuts and I'm not eating anything else other than fruits, vegetables and plant-based proteins like tempeh, home made soy yogurt, and occasionally some cheese. I don't like meat and i will not consider eating it for many reasons, but my ethical views are among the highest of them. However, I'm trying to convince myself to eat some eggs.
So I guess what I'm wondering is do you think that something was diet is making me feel this way or could it be a hormonal thing? Or maybe because I stopped taking my antidepressants? Could have just be constipated, is it water weight or am I actually gaining weight? I went from 106 to 103 lb when I first started the diet, then I went up to 108 lb. And some days I weigh as much as 110lbs. But it really upsets me because I was consistently weighing 106 before the diet and then I got excited because they started losing weight on it, and then I started gaining weight which really freaks me out especially because I used to suffer from anorexia and I do not want to gain weight at all. I was happy 106 and I don't want to wait any more than that. I feel that is my ideal weight and I feel happiest and healthiest at that number. I just don't understand how I could be eating healthier than ever (I thought I ate healthy before this diet) yet feeling fatter than before.
Everyday when I wake up now though, I just feel fat and it makes me feel miserable and I hate myself. And then I can't even look forward to eating because I just feel like it's going to make me fat uncontrollably. There's nothing I can do about it.
Here's a rundown of my typical day of meals, if it helps
Breakfast: apple/banana with 2tbsp almond/peanut butter
Lunch: salad with tons of veggies & oil and vinegar dressing + 1/4 cup nuts
Dinner: sauted veggies with a little olive oil, a serving of protein like Tempeh, and maybe some a serving of cheese.
I do exercise too, I go on about 30minute runs, usually 3-4 miles, mostly up hills. The consistency of it depends on how much time I have. I have a one year old baby and am trying to move so my time has been limited.
Snack: home made non dairy yogurt with a little honey or maple syrup, a few nuts and berries. Also a few dark chocolate chips at the end of the night.
I currently weight between 108-110 depending on how constipated I am but I just want to get back to weighing my confirmation 106 without the annoying constipation, bloating and constantly feeling full.
I also have a family history of thyroid disorders, which I'm going to get checked the again at my next Dr apt.

2023.02.12 18:51 Reasonable-Rope9869 This is a complaint letter I am writing to the landlord about a noisy neighbor. Would you please help to check about the expression or grammar? (If it is too long, I can divide it into several posts). Thanks!

Dear SiMadam,
I am writing this letter to complain about the constant loud and annoying noise of my neighbor in apartment 103.
The neighbor has been kept making loud and annoying noises from the time they moved in by running up and down stairs, slamming the doors (including front door, interior door, closet door, etc.; sometimes slamming the front door hardly many times a day), playing basketball inside the apartment (on the second floor or on the stairs), throwing heavy things onto the ground of the second floor, hammering loudly…
The neighbor can’t stay in the apartment peacefully and quietly. As long as the neighbor is in the apartment, he will always make loud and annoying noises. He does everything loudly. Walking loudly, running loudly, slamming the doors loudly. He run up and run downstairs from the first day they moved in. Starting from around 6am in the morning, I can hear the neighbor running up and down stairs, walking around loudly. The noises are low and deep, sound like thunder or beating drum. Even the white noise machine can’t cover these noises. Even occasionally it is quiet for a while, there will suddenly be a loud bang/thump or several bangs from nowhere. From early in the morning (as early as 6 am) till night (before sleep time), as long as he is at home, you can’t study or sleep because you will be kept interrupted whatever you are doing.
Some noises are so horrible and let me worry about the safety of the apartment. For example, when it sounded like he threw the ball in the apartment, the building was shaking. When he plays basketball in front of the apartment, it sounded like that sometimes he threw the ball onto the wall of the building. When he plays ball outside the back of the apartment, it sounded like sometimes he threw the ball onto the fence (both the lady in Apt 104 and me heard the unusual noise and figured it out). These noises let me worry about the safety of the building or the fence. We rent this apartment and we should take good care of the facilities and do things softly. We should not do things hardly to avoid any potential destruction to the property. Some activities, such as walking and closing doors etc. are daily activities. But considering the influence to others, we should do things softly to try not to bother the neighbors. We should walk softly and if the shoes are too heavy or hard, we need to wear soft and light shoes; we should not run inside the apartment; the doors can be closed in a normal manner and no need to slam it.
I talked with neighbor in Apt 104 and she felt the same. She said the neighbor have kept being loud for a few months since she moved in last November. For example, she felt “sometimes it sounds like someone is playing basketball against the walls or inside the apartment at least once a week. It also sounds like someone is taking a hammer to something multiple times a week, sometimes as early as 7AM or late at night. Sometimes things fall and that is no issue, but in 103 it sounds like someone is taking anger out on stuff in the room. It will be quiet for a few hours then out of nowhere very loud bangs that sometimes shake the floor a little. It’s very annoying.”
Here are some recordings I took about the noises from Apt 103. The records can’t reflect the actual sound or volume justly. The volume is much less than what we really heard. Because many of the noises are not continuously but constantly, some of the recordings are short, but it happened constantly, once in a minute or a few minutes. Some of the noises, such as running up and down stairs, slamming the front door or other doors, walking loudly, a sudden bang or thump, or other noises, are there every day, many times a day. Some of the noises, such as playing ball in the apartment or hammering something, or other noises, are there once in a few days, can be longer or shorter. Sometimes the noises last longer continuously, sometimes last shorter but constantly.
If you can, please use an earphone, listen in a quiet place, and turn the volume loud enough. In this way, the sound might be closer to the real sound we heard.
I have lived in this apartment for a few years, all the previous neighbors at both sides and the present neighbor at the right side, none of them act like the present neighbor in Apt 103. I sincerely hope you can do something to let this apartment go back to a peaceful and quiet place for the hard studying students to live in.
Thank you.

2023.02.07 13:58 dwredbaker 1st John 2:12

Chapter 21
Forgiven Children
1 John 2:12
"I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake."
The title of this chapter raises the question, Are there any unforgiven children? To which we reply, certainly there are—the whole company of God's elect remaining so while in their natural condition. "But surely such could hardly be denominated 'children'—children of God." Wrong, they are children of God when they enter this world, though they possess not then the divine nature, and therefore are as yet unmanifested as such, and unknown either to themselves or to others until they be born again. They are God's children by eternal predestination (Eph 1:5). It was as such that Christ died for them (John 11:52). It is because they are such that, in due time, the Holy Spirit is sent into their hearts (Gal 4:6). But their sins are not forgiven them before they savingly believe in Christ, and that is not until the Holy Spirit is given them and they are quickened into newness of life, for it is impossible that anyone who is dead in trespasses and sins should really feel his dire need of a Savior and come to Him for pardon. Thus our text speaks of the regenerated children of God whose sins are forgiven.
What a truly amazing thing it is that there should be such a thing as divine forgiveness of sins—transgressions of God's Law, affronts to His holiness, rebellions against His exalted majesty. What a marvel that God does not deal with all mankind as He did with the angels when they fell—"delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment" (2 Peter 2:4)! Next to the gift of Christ Himself and the grace we receive from His fullness (John 1:16), forgiveness of sin is the greatest blessing God bestows, and therefore does it head the list of benefits for which the Psalmist blessed the Lord with all his soul (103:2-3). Forgiveness may be defined as that judicial act of God whereby the penitent believer is released from the guilt of his transgressions against the Law, without receiving any satisfaction at his hands or inflicting any punishment upon him. It is the remitting of the penalty, which he had incurred. It is a revoking of the sentence of justice, an acquittal of his person before the bar of God. It is described in Scripture by a variety of expressions, which serve to open unto us the nature of the thing itself. Several of them are brought together in Psalm 32:1-2.
Before proceeding any further to develop the principal subject of our verse, let us outline its contents. "I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake." Five things call for consideration.
- The connection between that statement and what precedes as well as follows.
- The significance of "I write unto."
- The appellation which is here given to those addressed—"little children."
- The reason why the apostle sent this epistle unto them—"because your sins are forgiven."
- The ground of this blessing—"for His name's sake."
First, the relation between 2:12-14, and its context. Hitherto we have had before us the fellowship of the Father with His children: the nature of that fellowship, the means appointed for its maintenance, and the obligations and privileges which the same entails. Now we are introduced, as it were, to the different members of God's family, notice being taken of their several ages or stages of growth, with their corresponding spiritual attainments. But before John begins to divide the family into its component parts he addresses himself to the whole thereof, comprehending them all under the endearing expression of "little children," announcing their sins to be forgiven. That was in strict accord with his central design in this epistle: "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that you may know that you have eternal life," (v. 13), for a saving faith in Christ which issues in forgiveness is a sure sign that the one exercising the same is already in possession of eternal life.
"These verses (12-14) form a break or interruption in the apostle's line of argument. There is, as it were, a pause. John calls upon those to whom he writes to consider, not only what he is writing to them, but what they themselves were to whom he is writing: what is their character and standing: what he is entitled to assume in and about them as likely to ensure a fair reception of his message. That was the common apostolic method. It is a courteous and complaisant way of insinuating advice; taking for granted the attainments to be enforced. But it is far more than that, and it is so emphatically here. It is a trumpet call summoning all the faithful to a recognition of their real and true position before God; and that with a view to their receiving aright what His servant is now writing to them" (R. Candlish).
In other words, verses 12-14 pave the way for what follows.
While stressing the necessity of a godly walk and a fruitful life, the foundation on which they rest must ever be insisted upon. "Holiness of life ought indeed to be urged, the fear of God to be carefully enjoined; men ought to be sharply goaded to repentance, newness of life, together with its fruits. But still we ought ever to take heed lest the doctrine of faith be smothered—that doctrine which teaches that Christ is the only Author of salvation and all its blessings. On the contrary, such moderation ought to be presented that faith may ever retain its primacy. This is the rule that is presented to us by John: having faithfully spoken of good works, lest he should seem to give them more importance than he ought to have done, he carefully calls us back to contemplate the grace of Christ" (Calvin). In other words, duly to observe the order and balance of truth. Doubtless there is, too, a designed link with verse 10: real faith, saving faith, "works by love" (Gal 5:6), and where it exists and is exercised, we may be assured that this results from God's having pardoned our sins.
"I write unto you." Three things were intimated by that language. First, a holy privilege. It was the conferring of a great favor upon them. If the reader were to receive a letter from the official secretary of the king of England, he would feel himself highly honored: how much more so to be addressed by one of the ambassadors of the King of kings! Second, a call to duty. As 2:1, shows, "I write unto you" is a hortatory expression. I John am telling you what to do, and what not to do: sin not (verse 1), keep God's commandments (verses 3-5), follow the example Christ has left us (verse 6), love the brethren (verses 7-11), love not the world (verse 15). Give heed then to my injunctions for they are invested with divine authority. Third, a permanent record: writing conveys the idea of fixedness. The message delivered by the apostle was no mere transient one, allowing a subsequent revision, either of subtraction or addition. It was the imperial and imperishable Word of God for all generations, and a solemn curse is pronounced upon anyone who adds to or takes from the same (Rev 22:18-19). Thereby God's children are graciously provided for against all the attacks of Satan and his agents, who are ever to be met with "It is written"!
"Little children." The word used here is quite another from the one found in the next verse, and from "newborn babes" in 1 Peter 2:2. In the Greek there are two different words which are both translated "little children" in our English version without distinguishing between them. The one in our text is teknion, which occurs seven times in this epistle, and in each instance is applied to the whole company addressed: 2:1, 12, 28; 3:7, 18; 4:4; 5:21. The one in verse 13 is paidion, which occurs again only in 2:18, and is restricted to spiritual infants. The former is a term of affection, and is given to the entire believing family; whereas the latter is a discriminating word, which signifies those who are very young, and in verse 13 is limited unto a particular class in God's family—the spiritual babes, in contradistinction from the "young men" and the "fathers." Teknion, then, is used of believers of all ages and degrees of growth. This is clear from its first occurrence, for in both halves of 2:1, the whole household of faith is obviously in view: "My little children, these things write I unto you, that you sin not. And if any one sin, we have an advocate with the Father."
The blessing which is predicated in our text of those written unto is not one that is peculiar to any special grade of Christians—as are the attainments of the several classes referred to separately in verse 13, but is true of all alike, for the forgiveness of sins pertains to every one of them. There is a community of life, and pardon is the portion of all saints. By the new life received at regeneration, they are related to God as Father and to each other as brethren; by forgiveness a title is conveyed which makes them heirs of Heaven. In verse 12 the apostle postulates that which pertains to every believing child of God; but in verse 13 he describes that which characterizes their respective grades according to their measures of growth. In styling all "little children," John expressed both his authority and his affection: it stamped his address with weight and dignity, and at the same time revealed the warmth of his heart unto them. From the remainder of the sentence he would have them know that it was out of love to Christ and to them that he penned this letter: not to distress, but to promote their spiritual happiness and mutual affection one to another.
"I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you."
"As this epistle is what we style a catholic epistle, so the address is suited to this, and a universal blessing which belongs unto and is actually bestowed on all the members of the true Church of Christ is expressed. This is the reason he assigns for writing to them, and why he so lovingly addressed them. He had before declared that the blood of Christ, the Son of God, cleanses them now, in the present tense, from all sin. He then proceeded to declare if any of them should sin, they had in Christ an all-prevailing Advocate. He was with the Father. He was their righteousness and their atonement. Then he showed what the true and spiritual knowledge of this, and communion with Christ in the blessings and benefits of the same, would consequently and evidentially produce. And now he addressed them because they were the pardoned ones of God. Thus here is consolation, abounding consolation, increasing consolation for them. They were brought to the knowledge of the Father and the Son; they were admitted into fellowship with Them; they were in Christ, pure and righteous. He was their High Priest before the Majesty in the heavens. Their sins were completely taken away, and they were in their individual persons pardoned" (S.E. Pierce).
"For you, LORD, are good, and ready to forgive, and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon you" (Psalm 86:5). What a word is that in Nehemiah 9:17, "You are a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness"! It was on the basis of that blessed fact that Daniel prayed, "To the Lord our God belong mercies and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him" (Dan 9:9). In Psalm 32:1, forgiveness of sins is likened, first, to a removal of them: "Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven" is literally "whose transgression is lifted up"—taken off him because laid on Christ. Second, to a covering of them—by the blood of Christ. Sin is nauseous and abhorrent to the eye of the Holy One. Third, to a non-imputation of them: they are not reckoned to his account, because charged to his Surety. In Isaiah 43:25, to a blotting out of sins; in Luke 7:41-42, and Matthew 6:12, to the cancellation of debts; in Hebrews 8:12, to God's no more remembering them—thinking no further about them, His justice having been satisfied; and in Isaiah 1:18, to a washing of them "as white as snow."
It is therefore very clear that one grand design of a Gospel ministry is the assuring and comforting of the saints, for unbelief is ever at work within them, and Satan constantly engaged in efforts to destroy or at least disturb their peace. No small part of the work assigned to the Lord's servants is so to set the person and work of the Savior before His redeemed that, by occupying their hearts with the same, they will be lifted out of themselves and delivered from their fears. The forgiveness of sins of those who believe is one of the first blessings announced by the Gospel: in fact there is no true proclamation of God's good news where that is not plainly set forth. When the Lord Jesus gave the great commission to His apostles, He declared, "that repentance and remission [forgiveness] of sins should be preached in his name among all nations" (Luke 24:47), and accordingly we find that when Peter was sent to Cornelius and his friends he asserted of Christ, "To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whoever believes in him shall receive remission of sins" (Act 10:43). Paul, too, bore witness at Antioch, "Through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: And by him all that believe are justified from all things" (Act 13:38-39).
The object of divine pardon is a penitent believer, and the fruit thereof is a longing and determination to please the Bestower of it. "And he said unto her, Your sins are forgiven...Your faith has saved you; go in peace" (Luke 7:48, 50). Faith is as necessary in an instrumental way as Christ's satisfaction in a meritorious way: "that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me" (Act 26:18). Christ purchased remission of sins, faith puts us in possession of it. It is fitting that those who are indebted to Christ for this benefit should give up themselves to Him, both in a way of dependence and of submission, putting their case into His hands as the Advocate with the Father, and devoting themselves in subjection to Him, for He is "the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him" (Heb 5:9). Evangelical repentance issues from the renewed heart's sorrow and horror of sin—which cost the Savior so dearly. Saving faith is that which clings to Christ as our only refuge and hope. Gratitude flows forth in affection to Him: "Her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven [in their own apprehension], the same loves little" (Luke 7:47).
This divine pardon of sins is free, no charge being exacted of its subject: "the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace" (Eph 1:7). Our redemption and recovery cost us nothing, and since it be by grace, then without our deserving. "You have sold yourselves for nothing; and you shall be redeemed without money" (Isa 52:3). It is bestowed without respect to anything in us or from us: "and when they had nothing [with which] to pay, he frankly forgave them both" (Luke 7:42). Thus it is wholly gratuitous. "I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for mine own sake" (Isa 43:25)—whatever God does in our salvation it is to glorify His mercy, and out of compassion for our misery. "For your name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great" (Psalm 25:11): the penitent believer has no other plea but the honor of God's name engaged by gracious covenant. Well may we exclaim, "Who is a God like unto you, that pardons iniquity, and passes by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage?" (Mic 7:18).
Divine forgiveness is full: "Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon" (Isa 55:7). And since He does so "according to the riches of his grace," we may be sure it is neither niggard nor grudging. Possibly the reader has acknowledged a fault unto a fellow Christian, and he has said, "I forgive you," but in such a tone of voice and expression of countenance that you felt you had been just as well without such a pardon. But when God forgives, there is—as Luke 15:20 reveals—just as much joy in His heart as there is in the recipient's. God does things not by halves, but perfectly: "Who forgives all your iniquities" (Psalm 103:3), canceling the whole, so that not one is left on record in His book. A partial forgiveness would not shed sufficient glory on the blood of the Lamb. As John Gill said of His atoning sacrifice, "It reaches to all sins: original and actual, secret and open, past, present, and to come."
Divine forgiveness is final. When God pardons it is not merely for a season, but forever. His sentence is irrevocable, releasing the believer from the whole guilt of his transgressions, so that the triumphant challenge goes forth, "Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifies. Who is he who condemns?" (Rom 8:33-34). His sentence is never repealed; the saint is fully discharged from all punishment, for the Law can demand no penalty from him. "You will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea" (Mic 7:19), and the ocean, my reader, never casts up anything which has sunk into its depths. When God pardons sin it is never charged again to the culprit: "their sins and iniquities will I remember no more" (Heb 10:17). Divine forgiveness is permanent and continuous because of the everlasting value and validity of Christ's atonement. It is the standing office of Christ to act as the great High Priest of His people, and His blood has not only cleansed, but "cleanses from all sin."
The great assize is indeed at the last day, but God is exercising His judicial office even now. "Truly he is a God that judges in the earth" (Psalm 58:11) weighing every action, passing verdict on each person, forgiving or not forgiving. The final judgment is but a public proclamation and execution of the same. As Manton so aptly pointed out, there is a threefold distinction between God's forgiving us now and then. First, during this life the sentence of the Law may be revoked, but then it is definitive and peremptory. One who is now condemned by the Law may be absolved. Every son of Adam is "condemned already" (John 3:18), and he binds that condemnation upon himself if he dies in his unbelief and impenitence, in contempt of the gracious offer of the Gospel. That his state is now capable of alteration is clear from John 5:24, "Truly, truly, I say unto you, He who hears my word, and believes on him that sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is [judicially] passed from death unto life." But at the last great day the sentence is inexorable and irrevocable, and as the tree fell so will it forever lie.
Second, the divine sentence is now given in private; then it shall be proclaimed publicly. At conversion the verdict is passed in the awakened conscience according to the Word of God, the Holy Spirit sealing upon the renewed and believing heart some sure promise of God. But when the dread tribunal is set up the sentence will be pronounced by the Judge's own mouth before an assembled universe, saying either "Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world" (Mat 5:34) or "Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels" (Mat 5:41). As the believer now has the Spirit's witness within him, then it will be ratified in open court, the Judge of all the earth publicly exonerating him. Third, then there will be an actual execution of the sentence. Now we have our everlasting portion either by promise or threat; but then both the promise and the threat will be fully made good.

2023.01.28 18:41 Breezetwists1988 Delivery/Rideshare Comedy Material

Just dawned on me that there is so much material a comedian could salvage from this job. Sometimes, the irony is almost too much that you can’t help but laugh.
First thing that comes to mind — door numbers. I’m absolutely convinced that a handful of architects strictly built some apartments just to F with me… “Oh, the delivery is for apt 103? Fantastic! Walk right this way and you’ll see apt 101, 102, 104, 105, 106…
What in the actual f$ck? Like, there’s no way. Where the hell is apt 103?! You clearly set this plan in motion years ago just to screw with me…
Lol, anyhow — in a perfect world with the perfect comedian and perfect audience. I’d pay an absurd amount to watch this!
