2023.06.10 20:08 Jay-4-Real Data source is on a website behind many navigation steps

I want to upload some data for my data model, however ATM, I have to
click a link, put in a password, click on a hyperlink, Then link on drop Chose which report type I want from the drop down When on this page there are two drop downs which are always the same, 1st today's date, the second is the choice of two shift in always choose the same shift. Except if the the date is on a Sunday in which case the shift has a third date, only used for the Sunday. Then a table appears and the report I want is always has the same name. I click on the name and a secondary table opens, with a list of barcodes. I usually export this list as excel file then cut and paste the barcodes I want for my data model.
Writing it down above takes longer than doing, but I was hoping to automate this task, but it's past my current power query ability.
Could any please help me or offer a link to a solution?
Thank you in advance.

2023.06.10 20:07 Imhere129 Can't stop fantasizing about my sex friend.

So I'm not a porn guy so usually when I masturbate I don't really watch a lot of porn but I tend to use my imagination to masturbate to people I know or I've met or saw on street and I'm comfortable doing this more than porn (but I don't writing this right now making feel like a creep) so the problem is me and my ex sex friend we decided to stop having sex but since he's like the only one I had real sex with for a lot of times basically almost 2 years (I'm 23 now) and I enjoyed it a lot I can't stop fantasizing about him while masturbating and that's making want to have sex with him even tho we both agreed to stop. So any advice to stop this ?

2023.06.10 20:07 DurtyNinja I'm stressing over a girl, am I looking too deep into things?

So, About 3 1/2 years ago I met this girl that was going to the same school as me in the upcoming semester. But we wouldn't be able to see each other for 6 months because we lived in 2 different parts of the state, she was awesome. We talked every day, FaceTime every day and told each other everything. Even counted down the days before we saw each other.
About 4 months in, things broke off, not on bad terms, we just stopped talking. I thought about her all the time for the past 3 years and recently, I hit her up and we started to talk again. Things basically picked up where we left off. We call each other cutesy names, and even met in person for the first time, something we couldn't do when we were first talking. However, we could only go on 1 date (it was a great date) before I had to go on vacation with my family.
Things were still going great, we talk to each other every day, and still call each other cutesy names and say how much we miss each other. However, recently the past couple days she has been distant. While she still calls me cutesy names and says I miss you, she seems a little dry and im kind of worried that she might want to break things off. Even though on our date she told me how much she missed me when we weren't talking. I dont want to fuck things up. But I feel like I say too much sometimes and I get too attached too easily.
Any advice on what I should do? We were both planning on meeting up in 11 days when we both get back from our vacations and I just keep stressing that she is losing interest. It may just be my attachment issues and me looking too much into things. But I just want some advice.

2023.06.10 20:06 Scared_Mongoose2689 The Bible and homosexuality

A little backstory real quick. I am super gay 😅I tried to stop being gay to be a Christian and that obviously didn’t work. I wasn’t just a “believe what I’m told” person. I’m a critical thinker and studious and like to have the facts of things. I studied the issue of homosexuality and I personally cannot understand the scriptures in a way that would support it. I know I see many try to with other interpretations and such, but I was never convinced. So many hold on to these interpretations to remain a Christian, but I really don’t think the Bible supports it and if that is the case, I don’t support the Bible and the God who would cause so much unnecessary suffering and anguish for people like me.
So what does everyone here think about this topic? I know many have other reasons for not believing (as do I) but from an objective perspective, did anyone think the Bible could be used in support of LGBTQ people or did you conclude it didn’t?

2023.06.10 20:06 Grand-Earth2594 does artificial intelligence get capitalized?

Introduction: Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a rapidly evolving technology that has become increasingly prevalent in our daily lives. AI is changing the way we work, communicate, and even think. With this rise in importance, it's natural to wonder how to properly write and use the term artificial intelligence. One common question is whether or not to capitalize the phrase.
Presentation: There is no hard and fast rule about whether or not to capitalize artificial intelligence. In general, it is not technically necessary to capitalize it as it is not a proper noun. However, it is often capitalized in certain contexts, such as when used as a title or as the name of a specific product or service. For example, IBM's Watson is a specific AI product, and as such, it is capitalized. Similarly, the book "Artificial Intelligence for Humans" is capitalized because it is a title. In these cases, capitalization helps to emphasize the importance and distinctiveness of the term.
On the other hand, when using the term generally, such as in a sentence about the capabilities of AI, it is perfectly acceptable to write it in all lowercase. There is no hard and fast rule about when to capitalize it - it is up to the writer's discretion and the specific context in which it is used.
Conclusion: In summary, the question of whether to capitalize artificial intelligence depends on the specific context in which it is being used. In general, it is not necessary to capitalize it unless it is being used as a title or the name of a specific product or service. In other cases, it is entirely up to the writer's preference and style. As AI continues to evolve and shape the world around us, it is important to stay attuned to the language and conventions that describe this emerging technology.

2023.06.10 20:06 jaxspider /r/iWallpaper is going restricted June 12th & 13th due to Reddit's recently changed API policies affecting 3rd Party Apps

What's going on?

A recent Reddit policy change threatens to kill many beloved third-party mobile apps, making a great many quality-of-life features not seen in the official mobile app permanently inaccessible to users.
On May 31, 2023, Reddit announced they were raising the price to make calls to their API from being free to a level that will kill every third party app on Reddit, from Apollo to Reddit is Fun to Narwhal to BaconReader.
Even if you're not a mobile user and don't use any of those apps, this is a step toward killing other ways of customizing Reddit, such as Reddit Enhancement Suite or the use of the desktop interface .
This isn't only a problem on the user level: many subreddit moderators depend on tools only available outside the official app to keep their communities on-topic and spam-free.

What's the plan?

On June 12th, many subreddits will be going dark to protest this policy. Some will return after 48 hours: others will go away permanently unless the issue is adequately addressed, since many moderators aren't able to put in the work they do with the poor tools available through the official app. This isn't something any of us do lightly: we do what we do because we love Reddit, and we truly believe this change will make it impossible to keep doing what we love.
The two-day blackout isn't the goal, and it isn't the end. Should things reach the 14th with no sign of Reddit choosing to fix what they've broken, we'll use the community and buzz we've built between then and now as a tool for further action.
What can you do?
  1. Complain. Message the mods of /, who are the admins of the site: message reddit: submit a support request: comment in relevant threads on /reddit, such as this one, leave a negative review on their official iOS or Android app- and sign your username in support to this post.
  2. Spread the word. Rabble-rouse on related subreddits. Meme it up, make it spicy. Bitch about it to your cat. Suggest anyone you know who moderates a subreddit join us at our sister sub at /ModCoord.
  3. Boycott and spread the Reddit's competition! Stay off Reddit entirely on June 12th through the 13th- instead, take to your favorite non-Reddit platform of choice and make some noise in support!
  4. Don't be a jerk. As upsetting this may be, threats, profanity and vandalism will be worse than useless in getting people on our side. Please make every effort to be as restrained, polite, reasonable and law-abiding as possible.

2023.06.10 20:06 DOMANURE Been collecting for almost 18 years, so I thought I would share my collection!

Been collecting for almost 18 years, so I thought I would share my collection!
I have been collecting manga since I was 10 years old, so this collection holds a special place in my heart. After lurking for a while I thought I would share as well. Most of these book cases have 2 rows of manga on each shelf - each series split with the first half on the front row, with it's second half in the row behind it. My personal favorites from my collection are probably any of the Jojos (as it's my favorite series and I've been collecting them since the original part 3 singles), Eyeshield 21, and Hoshin Engi to name a few. This journey of collecting manga is so fun, and my collection has a lot of great memories and nostalgia tied to them. I'm glad I could share this overly sentimental post with other likeminded people who care about and love their collections, too.

2023.06.10 20:05 Striking-Good ESPHome integration - API key issue


I have HA running on a RPi 4 -

Home Assistant 2023.6.1
Supervisor 2023.06.1
Operating System 10.2
Frontend 20230608.0 - latest

I have programmed an ESP8266 D1 Mini with ESPHome - v2023.5.5 (latest)

I have a DS18B20 temperature sensor connected to it.

This is the YAML file -

name: ds18b20
friendly_name: DS18B20

board: d1_mini

# Enable logging

# Enable Home Assistant API

password: "BLAHBLAHBLAH1"

password: "BLAHBLAHBLAH"
fast_connect: true

# Enable fallback hotspot (captive portal) in case wifi connection fails
ssid: "Ds18B20 Fallback Hotspot"
password: "BLAHBLAHBLAH"

# DS18B20 Temperature Sensor
- pin: D5
- platform: dallas
address: 0x1f0316609c3cff28
name: "Study temperature"


I have been able to add the hardware into HA and can see the temperature and FW version entities.

Although I had issues with originally entering the API key, I eventually managed to do this.

However, I still see an Attention required warning in the Integrations menu. When I go to reconfigure, I'm asked to enter the API key again but it is rejected with me getting the 'Can't connect to ESP. Please make sure your YAML file contains an 'api:' line.' error message.

Any idea how to fix this ?

Also, in Integrations ESPHome shows '1 device'. If I click on it though, under Device info I see TWO ESPHome entries, which doesn't sound right.

Clicking on either of them shows the Needs attention message (for the API key) and lists two Devices, DS18B20 and ESPHome Web ddf546. Is this as expected ?

2023.06.10 20:05 savagedevil23 Me 24F, girlfriend 24F. 2 Year relationship. Potential Breakup?

I’ve been trying to break up with my girlfriend for about 6 months now, but it’s never been the right time. I wanted to tell her last month, but it was her birthday. I didn’t want to be that person who breaks up with someone on their birthday. So, I began to drop hints, because I can’t bear the thought of hurting her. Also, neither of us are big on words. We like to show how we feel through our actions, because actions speak louder than words. Whenever we talk, I use short replies and one-word replies, hunting that I don’t feel like talking. I’m terrified of breaking up with her, so I was hoping she would break up with me. Since she didn’t seem to get the hint with the short replies, I started dressing super risqué and ogling at other women when we go out. This is to hint at the fact that I’d like to see other people. I stopped inviting her to hang out with my friends and family when she asked to hang out with us. This was to hint at not wanting a long-term relationship with her. I also used her debit card to buy a car. This was to hint at the purchases she could be making without me in her life. I also took her name off the lease, and I still need to break the news to her about this too. This will be to hint at the fact that she will need to find a new place to live without me. And also that she’s capable of living without me. I also slept with her best friend, (42M), hoping that he would tell her we’d been sleeping together. He never did. I don’t know why he didn’t tell her. It’s not like it’s a big deal. We were only screwing around. It’s not like we were having full affair. How can I convince him to tell my gf that we’ve been sleeping together. How should I tell him to explain it without hurting her feelings? Also, what do I have to do to get my point across to her that I want to break up? I don’t want to hurt her feelings, but she says she’s been feeling extremely depressed. What are some things I can do to get her to break up with me?

I’m tired of people thinking that creative levels are inherently bad - and it’s all thanks to MT releasing really bland, lifeless creative stages they made. Well I’m here to make an argument through example that creative stages can be /bette than other stages in the game!
I have refined this stage alone for well over 30 hours spanning multiple weeks. I genuinely believe it’s an extremely fun stage for beans of all skill levels. I’m so confident in this that I’m leaving this for you all to see: this level is better than every MT-made custom level out there, and I don’t think it’s close.
This isn’t the only stage the creative community made that is stronger than every new creative level MT made for this season. So please, let my stage be a plea for you to give the creative community a chance to make creative stages fun and exciting. 🙏

2023.06.10 20:05 xatql What if.

I started defending people's names when spoken negatively about, if they aren't from my block they get a "Where you from G?" if their not wearing the colour I represent they get beat. If they say one bad thing about me, they get jumped. If they don't say enough good things about me, they get threatened.
I got in to fights, ended up in the hospital, put others in the hospital, cops were called, my parents were called. I got the "you didn't have to do that for me, but I always got you like you had me" talk. I was called "family" by my friends, they said they'd die for me, that they loved me that they'd do anything for me.
Boom,boom,boom now I'm on the ground knuckles hitting my face, feet kicking my stomach. The people I once defended watched from the sidelines.
"My family"... the ones who "loved me". Their faces... expressionless . They didn't stop it, didn't video it, didn't call the cops or call our other friends.
They just watched. Five on one, watched as I laid there not covering my body from the hits I was getting, laid there as I looked them in the eyes. Begging them to do something, say SOMETHING, but they never did anything.
They're finished. They start caring "Are you alright?", "Want me to call someone?", "Hey I tried doing something but there was so much of them". These words. They broke me more then the physical pain I endured. Gasping for air not able to form any words. Sirens in the distance coming closer and closer. Looking into the blue sky, feeling the sun beam on my face As blood drips out of my body.
In the hospital being treated, "Hey do you remember your name?" "What's your date of birth?" Asked if I remembered what happened to me. Scared to out my "friends", scared if I said anything the people who did this would do more damage to me.
My parents rushing in, my youngest sibling on my mother's hips, while my other siblings watched in the corner. Looking at their brothers unrecognisable face. Tears filled my face as I watch them cry, they're confused. They don't understand why someone would want to hurt the person they look up to, they don't understand why someone could be so cruel.
I'm healed, scars all over my face and body
. My mother smiling at me , "I love you" she says, my father holding my hand , "I'm happy youre better"...
Death, sad, aching. Laying my parents to rest, "I love you mother. I'm happy you're in a better place father".
Children running around, my siblings and I eating Christmas dinner, everyone opening their presents. Joy, happy, excitment.
Scared, worried, yes. On my knees for the women I love, please say yes, If not then okay. You will marry me? Thank God
Anxious, paranoid, relieved. Rushing to the hospital, Crying and screaming is all I hear Bags and bags of clothes and diapers New to being a father Guilty of sleepless nights I never regret having you and many more.
Saying farewell to my family, moving away with my wife and children. Big house, cute dog, Nice neighbourhood Good income. Warm, comfortable, peace....
As I grow older.
Memories, doubt, blame. 20 years ago That day... If I reached in my back pocket? Bang, boom, pop.
If I did... My parents farewell. My siblings growth. My nieces and nephews. My Wife... My Children...
Realisation, Satisfaction, Grateful.

2023.06.10 20:04 endersgame69 Kayobi's Days Off C24

I woke up in the morning to the smell of something cooking.
That was definitely off. I stretched out in my bed, “I’m finally going to be done with all that bothersome ‘work’.” I told myself with a smile on my face as I eased myself out of bed and rose to my feet.
A quick burning hot shower, and I was content, all was right with the world again.
I threw on my ‘outside clothes’ and emerged to find the cause of the odorous disturbance in my domicile…Celia was standing at an oven I’d never touched in my entire life.
“G’morning.” She said. She was still in her child sized shape, and dressed in something akin to pajamas… no, they ‘were’ pajamas. Ones covered in little animal patterns.
“Uh… yeah… it is, I guess, considering that I’m awake instead of asleep, I guess it’s fine but…” I yawned and rubbed the back of my head, “Why are you up so early, and what’s with…?” I looked her up and down.
“What’s with what?” She looked over her shoulder at me with a little smug expression on her face.
This?!” I said and waved my other hand up and down in front of her.
“Oh.” Celia’s expression never wavered.
“Well, I did a little research on Earth after my last visit, not much, but I figured I should know how to dress at least.” She pinched the soft cloth of the yellow pajamas and gave them a little tug, “These really are comfortable, by the way, you were not wrong about humans being good at comfort.”
“And your… tiny self?” I asked, and she chuckled.
“Oh, well you are the one who said I was your niece, after all. So now I suppose I should play the part. Besides, you are a lot older than I am, by what, a few hundred years?” She asked. She spun around with spatula in hand and held it up at her side like a soldier’s sabre and struck a stiff pose. “As my senpai, I think that is the word, I must look to you for guidance and instruction, and rely on you to take care of me while I am unfamiliar with everything…”
She was not sounding like a normal swapper. Then it hit me, she was much younger than I am. Young swappers are often prone to adopting the characteristics of what they imitate, we all are, really, but the younger they are the more true this is.
Another sneaky suspicion struck me, “How long have you been awake for?” I asked.
“About six hours.” She said, “I’ve been binge watching a lot!” A giant grin came over her face. “I was watching this one thing about a boy who lived with two girls, one of whom was his sister and he didn’t know which one… all the shenanigans!”
“Oh.” I dragged my hand down over my face, “Celia, how long do you usually take on the forms of other races for?” I asked.
She tapped the tip of the spatula against her cheek, “Um, I don’t know, a few hours, just long enough to do a job, I don’t do my own scouting, I’m too new for that so… maybe a tenth of this time, why?”
“Oh my… um… can you… do something for me?” I asked.
“Like make breakfast? I’m already on it, aunt Kayobi!” She laughed and spun back around and began stirring something up in whatever pan was on the stovetop over the oven. “I saw this thing where a dragon girl kept making omletts and they were too big, so I decided to try my hand at making them. Thankfully you had some stuff I could sort of improvise… I don’t know much about taste but-” She was rambling, I had to cut her off.
“That’s fine.” I interjected, “But… hasn’t anyone ever told you that you shouldn’t ‘swap’ for this long without going back or at least going to something else?”
“Yes, but it’s no problem, this is a human body after all and humans are super easy. It’ll barely be an inconvenience to shift to anything else. After all, they’re sort of shaped like us, who knows, maybe they’ll evolve into swappers too one day, if that healing factor of theirs keeps improving at least.” Celia said, she didn’t see the concerned expression on my face.
‘This is not good. No, this is definitely not good. She took on the characteristics of a child, a human child, and those are reckless, negligent, have horrible survival instincts, and routinely dismiss danger or problems to an absurd degree. It would be exactly like a human child to neglect the obvious in favor of just doing nothing…plus she’s young so she’s even more vulnerable to these things…’ I had to suppress my groan.
If she couldn’t swap back, she couldn’t go back. Not in the ‘oh no she’ll die’ sense. Not in the ‘she’s violated a law sense and will be harshly punished’ sense either.
No… no. If word of this got back to the others, she would be absolutely disgraced and shamed beyond all reason. It’s not as embarrassing as say, waving back at someone who wasn’t waving at you. It’s a thousand times worst.
It’s more like… if a human lost control of their bowels at their job where friends and family worked. At that point you might as well quit, change your name, and start your life over in a whole new place in the world.
Celia would never be able to look at the rest of her coworkers again without a sense of disgrace… and I know Celia. She’s a nice one, sort of sensitive about even asking for help, kind of insecure, really. She wouldn’t be able to handle it, she’d have to quit.
I sat down at the table. “Celia, I want you to do something for me, and I don’t want you to panic.”
“I know, I know, you want some red peppers added on top of your omlett, don’t worry, I saw you didn’t have any, but I saved some from the pizza last night, they included a couple of packets. I didn’t throw them out, so I’ll just add those real quick to your omlet and…”
I cleared my throat. “No, no, that’s fine.” I said.
“Oh, then here you go.” She said and slid the omlet onto a paper plate and handed it to me along with one of my many plastic forks.
“I want…” I started to say, and she leaned forward, her dark hair tumbled down behind her, she was waiting for me to try her food.
I stopped. I looked down at the dish. It actually smelled really good. I usually cooked bacon in the microwave, it seemed she’d chosen to use the oven, and that paid off. I could smell the bacon inside, and my mouth began to water.
I cut into the yellow goodness and then raised a bite to my mouth, the cheese within stretched into tiny strings and I put the morsel onto my tongue.
Flavor exploded. “This is amazing!” I shouted.
She grinned ear to ear and waited for me to take a second bite. I stopped myself, I set the fork down and set my palms flat on the table. “No, no Kayobi, don’t get distracted.”
“What?” Celia asked, “You said it was good, right?” She asked.
“Yes… and it is. But I need you to do something else… something not food related.” I said, and her mouth closed before she could ask whatever was on her mind.
“Try to swap back to your natural form.” I said.
“But that’s-” She started to object.
“Just do it.” I said.
She shrugged. “Fine.” She breathed out the annoyed sigh of every teenager in the history of humanity.
I waited.
She looked down at her hand. Her feet. She looked at her reflection in the glass window on the wall. She gritted her teeth and clenched her jaw and began to grunt and groan.
“I…what…” Celia’s eyes went very wide, she kept trying.
But she also kept failing.
“I’m… stuck.” She whispered.
“Yup. Looks like.” I said, and she looked at me with an expression of horrified shame as if she’d shat herself in front of me.
I held up a hand to stop the horrified apologies or bawling or whatever.
“Relax, nobody else knows, I won’t tell anyone, and I’ll help you get back to normal.” I promised.
A few minutes later, I knew what tears of relief on a human looked like when she was asking…
“You’re really not going to tell anyone… you’re going to help me get back to normal and never say a thing, you promise?” She asked.
“Yes.” I answered.
“Thank you…” Celia whispered and began to wipe her nose, I shrugged off her thanks and took another bite of the omlet.
“Don’t worry about it but… can I have another one of these before we get to work?” I asked, and a smile slowly came back to her face as she got up to make another.
“Do you know how to fix this?” She asked.
“Nope. But I have a clue.” I said as she opened the fridge to get out more eggs, cheese, and bacon.
“How?” She asked tentatively, looking over her shoulder at me while she rummaged.
“We wing it.” I said, and for good measure, brought wings out of my back in the hopes of making her laugh.
It got a little one, and that was a start, at least.

2023.06.10 20:04 justanotherthrowwy99 Target of hate speech against my country

I live in Japan and when it's going good here it's going great but as I got into adult life and entered work I've encountered more and more discrimination because of my race/country which has led me to currently cutting myself off from all of them and trying to start my own company. I got here as a university student almost a decade ago and the starting years were still rather peaceful in countryside
I won't say the name of my country, but even during the job hunts, jobs when I did get them it was pretty bad with the unaccounted for prejudice and at times complete pure unadulterated hatred target at my the country/people and it obviously affected me directly. And one of the problems here is that Japan despite being such a big economy is pretty darn closed in that it's such an echo chamber, if someone was being bigoted in the English speaking countries perhaps someone from outside would stop them but here because no one really speaks their language apart from other Japanese, it's such an unaccountable unfiltered sort of hate speech where there seems to be no end in sight and they don't think it's a bad thing at all as everyone around supports them
I've recently started to open up to them a bit more after staying alone for some time and "recovering" but I searched for my country's name recently on Yahoo Answers (which is still pretty popular here and used almost like reddit) and again came across just so much slander that it saddened me a lot again. Even in new threads whenever there's my country's name mentioned it's almost like a handful of people instantly raid it and spew all sorts of vile venomous shit to heart's content and support each other on it
Now I know that not everyone is like this and I fitted into the society without such worries for a long time when I was still new here, and it really started to be a problem once I started doing full time jobs, and with the slandeextreme generalization against my country's people it's a bit worrying what to do from here. Especially from my perspective I'm literally living alone here in a foreign land with literally no relative or acquaintance nearby.

2023.06.10 20:04 Cunt_nugget_07 Engaging different types of EVE community

I'm interested to hear your thoughts of community engagement within the various spheres of EVE - primarily high low and nullsec locals but also Special Interest Groups (SIGs). I'm asking specifically from the standpoint of social engagement rather than PVP or antagonistic engagement.
From my experience it's very difficult to gain visibility in highsec without making a nucience of yourself by interupting other peoples grind. Barely anyone uses local because it's safe enough to ignore, so you can rarely get a feeling of community going in general space outside of the roleplay areas and player-created channels. Mailing lists seem like the perfect communication tool for HS, though I've rarely seen them active.
Lowsec visibility is more obvious to me in that individual characters can make an impact in local - all you gotta do is be there. Mostly in the name of FW PVP and piracy, but there are other scenarios. It seems as simple as frequenting an area and getting good at PVP (or whatever it is you happen to be doing). It won't be long before you start recognising names and, perhaps, become recognised yourself.
Nullsec seems to be more about discord and 3rd party apps, where your presence is mostly as a leader or loud voice in 3rd party channels. It seems to be about political will and ability to get things done rather than actual ability or fun in the mechanical sense.
There's a lot of crossover in my classifications (particularly in NS; there must be some groups notable primarily for their skill (i'm thinking FCs and specific PVP corps), but yeah this is the limit of my knowledge.
Any anecdotes regarding how you developed your networks, or insights into the types of communities are most welcome!

2023.06.10 20:04 Grand-Earth2594 does artificial intelligence need to be capitalized?

Introduction: One of the most debated subjects in the technology industry is whether or not the term "Artificial Intelligence" should be capitalized. This article aims to delve into the reasons behind this debate and provide a clear understanding of whether or not artificial intelligence needs to be capitalized.
Presentation: There is no clear consensus on whether or not artificial intelligence should be capitalized. Some experts argue that it is a proper noun, thus it should be capitalized. Others claim that it is a common noun and should be treated as such.
Those who advocate for capitalization argue that the term describes a specific field of study and research, which is unique and distinct from other fields in the tech industry. They also claim that artificial intelligence is more than just a collection of tools and techniques, but rather an entire discipline with its own vocabulary, theories, and research. Therefore, it deserves capitalization.
On the other hand, supporters of non-capitalization argue that artificial intelligence is not a brand name or a trademark, and it does not refer to a specific product or company. Rather, it is a generic term that describes a range of technologies that simulate human intelligence. Therefore, it should not be capitalized.
Furthermore, some experts believe that the use of capitalization can create confusion and inconsistency in the industry. If some people choose to capitalize the term while others do not, it could lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings.
Conclusion: In conclusion, there is no clear-cut answer to whether or not artificial intelligence needs to be capitalized. Both views have their merits, and the decision ultimately comes down to personal preference and style. However, it is essential to be consistent in your use of capitalization for artificial intelligence, whether it is capitalized or not, to ensure clarity and avoid confusion.

2023.06.10 20:04 FractalFir TMF: compress your meshes by 86-89%, blazingly fast!

TMF: compress your meshes by 86-89%, blazingly fast! TMF is a file compression format written fully in Rust that achieves both high compression ratios, and insane decode speeds. It also aims to provide a user-friendly, explicit and well-documented API.

What did this update(0.2) bring:

  1. File size cut by half!
  2. Single-threaded read speed increased ~3x times!
  3. Support for decoding a mesh on multiple threads at once, which in some test cases cut decode time by further 2.8 times!
  4. Support for mesh tangent data.
  5. Support for custom mesh data! Add named mesh data, which is too, automatically compressed! Currently supports: IndexArrays, Intiges, Floats, and RGBA colors.
  6. Both the TMF reader and writer have been completely overhauled, and extensively tested by fuzzing, so reader should never crash!

How good is tmf at compressing?

Here is some comparisons with different model formats, comparing tmf to a wide range of other formats: Model used for comparisons has 15.7 k triangles, and it is available as sunsan.obj in testing folder of the repo
Format Size
.obj 1.3 MB
zip(deflate) compressed .obj 367.7 kB
.fbx 651.0 kB
zip(deflate) compressed .fbx 600.6 kB
.gltf 476.5 kB
zip(deflate) compressed .gltf 302.1 kB
.glb 356.6 kB
zip(deflate) compressed .glb 267.5 kB
.tmf 308.3 kB
.tmf with pre-encode optimizations enabled 165.5 kB
.tmf with pre-encode optimizations and hand-picked quality settings 147.3 kB
zip(deflate) compressed .tmf 307.9 kB
zip(deflate) compressed .tmf, with pre-encode optimizations 162.8 kB
zip(deflate) compressed .tmf, with pre-encode optimizations, hand-picked quality settings 145.0 kB
draco on max compression settings ~22 kB
As you can see, a .tmf mesh is smaller than almost all the other formats, except for Google Draco. Draco is still about 5x better at compression, but tmf is now far closer(previously it was ~10x worse than Draco). The situation might seem clear-cut, but there is one more metric to consider: decode speed.

How fast is tmf?

TMF is crazy-fast. Decoding a mesh with 15.7K triangles takes just 675.85 µs(on a single thread), that is 0.675 ms! At its size of 165.5 kB, we could estimate decode speed to be roughly 244 MB/s, which means that for HDDs and many cheaper SSDs, you could decode data faster than you could read it! What is even better, it is so fast, that on most systems it would take considerably more time to read an uncompressed 3D model, than it would take to read and decode a.tmf file! Comparing to Draco again, decoding this same exact mesh took Draco around 7-10 ms, which means that tmf is on average about 10 to 14 times faster than Draco! If we were to take the 10 times figure, that would mean that while Draco compresses meshes 5x better, it also decodes them 10x slower than tmf. Of course, we should take this with a pinch of salt. I have little experience using Draco, so it is entirely possible I just used it improperly. It is still, however, very rewarding to see my project come even close to something made by a team of people at Google.

Thanking my contributors

This was also the very first of my Rust projects that had someone else contribute. So I would like to thank people who have contributed: - various small, but significant QOL improvements to the API and suggestions for features - for work on better encoding for normals (not merged yet, so something to look forward to in 0.3!)


Any questions?

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I will try to answer all of them.

2023.06.10 20:04 iliketocampsowhat I(25) need some help options for my father(51), what do I do

Long story short my father(I have presumed to have NPD based on his behavior over the span of my lifetime) has started stalking and coming up with delusions over my mother figure. He is saying she's a porn star on onlyfans, sleeping with the fire department and other off the wall things. He showed up to the fire department asking them questions about her amd he almost got his ass kicked by like 20 of them because he wouldn't listen when they said they didn't know her. He's following her everywhere. He is also following those weird Google people search pages and showing up to homes of people that show up as "related to" her in any way. This is NOT in her character at all and I feel like my dad has completely lost it. He cannot provide any proof and just keeps saying his lawyers are compiling the proof and calling me stupid because I'm not blindly believing him. He is completely obsessing.
My father doesn't believe in therapy or any kind of mental illness, but he needs some serious help and idk how to get it for him. He has been cruel and cold my entire life and will not respond well to forced help. What are my options here?

2023.06.10 20:03 ashers_olives The Daily Visit and its Effects: The Life of a Christian and the Struggle of Sin.

Lately, I have been coming here on a daily basis. When I feel weakness, I just remind myself that I'm not the only one that struggles in this journey and I'm not the only one who believes that porn and masturbation are bad. Although one knows they are sins, sometimes one doesn't feel it to be so. It's in these moments that I am reminded of that scripture to guard one's heart.
The heart is not the source of instruction and it is not the measure of one's purpose. Although it gives us the motivation to keep seeking and grow, it is still prone to deception when impure. It's those times that a testing comes to purify the heart, but not all desire that test. It's also why we pray not to be lead into temptation, for we know that falling to it comes with the test of fire. But rejoice, for every fire we go through, leads us to purer lives.
If you struggle with sin now, pray that you may not be tempted. If you fail, know that your struggles and hardships are not in vain for they will lead you to a better place. Christians look to the future for they are new creations, not bound by the past but holding fast to the promises of the future.
Pray unceasingly friends and remember to look to God and His eternal promises.
