2023.04.02 14:29 jasomniax To play Rachmaninoff, is it necessary or highly beneficial to be able to extend your fingers far appart?

I don't know if I have the level to play Rachmaninoff, but maybe in a few years, and the most I can extend my fingers is to a 9th. Is this enough to be able to play some of his pieces?
I would really love to play Paino Concerto No. 2 in C minor some day, but if I would need to be able to do 10ths and 11ths, then I guess I couldn't play it or I would need to adapt the piece.

I am an ambulatory wheelchair user, but my condition has gotten to the point that I need it almost anytime I'm out of the house.
I have been using cheap/uncomfortable "transport wheelchair" for a couple months as I all my money was going to medical bills and I couldn't afford anything else.
I am more financially stable currently and am curious if anyone can recommend some good wheelchairs. I am overwhelmed by the options and variance in price. I don't need it to be motorized but I would like to be able to push it myself if my caretakers are not available.
Sorry if this is the wrong place to post

2023.04.02 14:27 Celivalg NVME PCIe drive fails, shows as 1GB partition

Hi, so my NVME... failed? I am still not sure what happened. So it was working fine yesterday evening, but when I woke my laptop from sleep I got filesystem errors. Rebooted and no boot drives were found.
Basically, in the BIOS, the drive shows up as only having one 1023MiB partition...
since it contained my boot partition, I tried booting on liveUSB and seeing if I could see something different, but I could not, so I put it in another computer that has a PCIe M.2 slot for more troubleshooting.
The device itself is supposed to be a intel SSDPEKNW512G8X1 (660p series 512GB)
On the other machine, it still only shows up as one partition, ran these commands:
#sudo fdisk -l /dev/nvme0n1 Disk /dev/nvme0n1: 1024 MiB, 1073741312 bytes, 2097151 sectors Disk model: SM2263 Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

I've looked in a lot of places online, but everyone seem to have different takes, different problems, and it's quite hard to get what I am looking for... closest I got was this where a driver seemed to be an issue on this specific linux distribution.... but nvme drivers are now included in the kernel afaik...

anyway, I am stuck, I have no clue how to troubleshoot this... I mean the disk is probbaly fried, but i kinda want to understand what I am seeing...

any help is appreciated

2023.04.02 14:27 Ataraxidermist [PI] In hell, people can choose what happens to them. They can choose literally ANYTHING. Naturally, many people try to exploit this by going for luxuries and pampering, but the devil ALWAYS has ways to torture those fools...

Link to the original prompt.
And so it came that Amber chose sleep. Blissful sleep, of a kind that feels like a wonder as you dwell in it, of a kind that rejuvenates mind and body upon waking up.
Amber decided never to wake up again. Hell offered little in the way of second-rate mortality, only in strange aeons could death die, but both Satan and God were too old for weird Old Testament stuff and had cast off Cthulhu a long time ago.
Toby - previously named Satan but unsatisfied with the mismatching expectations of the newly dead meeting him - took note of Amber's fate. He wrote with a Montblanc pen, the notebook had been crafted with the finest leather and marketed at ridiculously inflated price, but you had to admit that the absence of noise it made when you opened it had something classy to it.
So here was Toby, dressed in his impeccable and absurdly expensive suit, standing on the lush grass of Hell, taking note while looking at the verdant hills rolling in the distance. It was a warm day in hell, but a fresh breeze kept its dwellers fresh.
Wonderful workplace, but it made customers think they got to the Heavens when they most definitely didn't. Sartre once wrote L'Enfer, c'est les autres - Hell is others. As Toby could testify, Sartre was full of it, and Toby made him cry a lot until Sartre accepted to write the sign:
Hell is others, actually no, it isn't, sorry. - Sartre
It hung at the entrance of hell right under the following sign:
Arbeit macht frei. Nein, eigentlich nicht, entschuldigung. - Rommel
Which itself hung right underneath this one:
Ye who enter here, abandon all hope. Or not. How was I supposed to know? I'm an artist, not a theologian. - Dante
Somehow, this got customers even more confused.
Currently though, this didn't matter too much, for Toby had decided to give Hell a new spin recently.
To newcomers, he gave the following speech:
"Hello there, fellas," eventual confetti would be thrown here, "welcome to Hell with a capital H," flamethrowers would melt the confetti in mid-air right there, "but it's not what you think it is. You can pick your poison. Wealth? Women? An unending buffet? A successful invasion in Afghanistan? The sky is the limit... But wait, we're already there."
At this point, Archangel Gabriel dressed in a Giorgio Armani suit, would join the conversation and say "I'm the archangel Gabriel, and this is my favorite Hell in the afterlife."
After the first speech, it was noted that the flaming confetti diverted the customer's attention away from the spoken words, and a customer asked if there isn't supposed to be only one hell anyway, which vexed Gabriel immensely. Schedule conflict made it hard for him to be there for each arrival anyway.
So instead, Toby sat on leather chairs with the newly dead around a mahogany desk, he offered them tea, and explained the situation.
And that's how Amber chose sleep.
They walked out together, to the open fields under a cloudy sky. Little need to find a bed inside, the grass offered ample comforts, the temperature was always just right.
"Good night," said Toby, tipping his luxury pen against his chin.
Amber. She had suffered a lot. Admittedly, her dossier contained a surfeit of excuses for why she would turn into a horrible person. Broken household, terrible neighborhood, all the little things life puts together to make existence just a little bit worse. And excuses were worth something. She was human, no being was expected to behave perfectly, except God and Toby. Others could - no, had every right - to falter, to be weak, to be exposed, to fail to learn a lesson, to reach an epiphany.
But excuses only take you that far. Circumstances of birth matter little, it is what you do with a life that makes the difference. Even the Pokemon movie got that part right, and Toby was the first to criticize it.
Leave life a little bit better than you found it, for yourself and others. There, that's all it takes to reach Paradise on the first try. What belief or lack of belief you have matters little, as long as you sincerely try to do things right.
Being blinded by belief and deluding yourself into thinking you're doing the right thing doesn't count though.
Amber didn't get that part. Turns out, there's a long swath of scorched Earth built on good intentions behind her. Poor kids.
Naturally, she would pick sleep. All her life, she only ever aimed to have a sanctuary to herself. A place where she'd feel safe, secure, where the world outside couldn't touch her. A perfect sanctuary doesn't exist, but it's a part of escapism that's essential to the human condition, it helps a mind to recover, provides place and time to grow. She never got that.
And now, in the best sanctuary of them all, she chose to sink into the cushion a little further.
Toby took his jacket off, rolled his sleeves up and sat under the shade of a nearby, lonely but tall and large tree.
Archangel Gabriel was doing his daily jogging, he saw Toby's muscular forearms and whistled.
"Fuck you," said Toby, "and come by at the office, I still owe you a snooker game."
Amber stirred in her sleep. What else could she do but dream? First she dreamed the usual happy nonsense. She had lots of material to make things up, an entire human life of experience and imagination.
This was eternity.
A mind can only mull over the same subjects over and over again before getting bored. So the mind goes deeper, to the parts that are never remembered upon waking up, because they hurt. The mind dreams about life. Not from imagination, but from memory first, with all the rose tinted glasses. The life is gone through a hundred times.
A thousand.
An innumerable number of times.
And with each passage, with each revival of what was, life is honed.
First comes the rose-tinted glasses. The good and the bad, polished into a more digestible story. Until, somewhere in eternity, the glass slips, and is lost in the great nowhere. Other tricks are used, wishful thinking as if it had truly been so, double thinking, re-framing words and select moments to influence a narrative.
But with each passage, what was not and what was becomes clearer, almost brilliant.
Until memories cease to be. And what's left is the naked truth.
In her unending sleep, Amber cannot rely on the forgetfulness of waking up. She'd scream in the void, no, that's not how it was, that's not what I did. I did better, I gave them something I never had.
Ah Amber, Toby thinks, now you know. You know you only deluded yourself into thinking you gave a safe home the likes you never had to those poor kids. No, Amber, you couldn't provide it to yourself, you certainly couldn't provide it to them either. Not with the veneer of that fake smile, not with this self-righteous belief to top it off. At least your own parents weren't nearly as hypocritical.
"Woken up, have we?" Toby asked.
Amber had buried herself under the weight of the truth. It's hard to sleep with heavy rocks compressing your chest.
"How long have I been asleep?" she asked.
"Who knows in this place," Toby shrugged.
"You're a sadist," she said between sobs.
Toby's voice became mellow.
"Amber. I haven't done a thing."
"I didn't... I didn't want that, not like that. Not like that."
"No point telling me that. A swig?" Toby handed her his flask, a shiny and clean metallic flask indicating that no matter how far this person is addicted to alcohol, at least they do it with class.
Amber took a sip, felt her throat burning, spit it all out.
"What the hell is it?"
"An expensive drink," mumbled Toby, "can't even trust these heathens to appreciate the good stuff. Anyway! follow me, we have somewhere to be and I got appointments soon."
"Just... just let me vanish."
Toby loomed over her, his shadows expanded, for the span of a singular moment, his faces showed the ugliness of eternal torture, horns made of calcified wants and disappointments, wings of cold and despair. And in that singular moment of dark glory, the devil said:
"No. Now get your ass up. Pretty please?"
Toby walked, and after some uneasy second-guessing, Amber stood up and followed him.
Hell was lovely as always. They went beyond hill and dale, crossed a forest where the smell of pine was an invitation to sit by a tree and look at the squirrels playing in the branches, they crossed a bridge over a lazy river, they walked in a prairie of dandelions.
"Where are we going?" asked Amber.
"To the foot of a mountain in Paradise."
"I don't deserve Paradise."
"Who cares? We crossed into it when we passed that bridge."
Amber pondered the information for a moment.
"That rickety old thing?"
"Yup. People are always surprised how close Heaven and Hell are. Anyway..."
It came into view. The mountain. A pillar to carry a universe, impossibly wide, the top disappearing among the stars, infinity made stone.
"Now," started Toby at the foot of the mountain, "normally I'd give you the whole speech about you're pardoned, God loves you, Santa Claus actually does exist. But," Toby opened his notebook, "I've got an appointment with... a little girl? Gabriel must have mixed the schedules again. So anyway, congrats. You're worthy or paradise, hurray, you're forgiven, yay, bla bla bla. But there's something after Paradise, Hell and the purgatory. There's more. I tried explaining that once with a powerpoint, but your minds can't really grasp it."
Toby started to walk away, while a surprised Amber was sort of hoping he would finish the explanation.
"Up there, there's transcendence, the real stuff, and incidentally why we haven't seen many people because Heaven and Hell are just a pit stop. That's where you're headed, it's where we're all headed."
Toby became smaller and smaller in the distance.
"How do I get there?" shouted Amber.
Toby turned around and extended his arms.
"What do you think?" he shouted back, "You climb!"

2023.04.02 14:27 BessieaHughes I have figured out why men don't like fashion and clothes shopping as much as women

It's because we don't get the same "results" from it
The bodies of women are generally attractive, while the bodies of men are not - or, men like looking at women, while women couldn't care less.
When a woman goes to buy a cute dress, or some other revealing clothing, she knows that it's going to be noticed and reflected - she will have men looking at her, giving her attention, being attracted to her. Being found attractive and validated feels nice obviously.
But can a guy do the same? I mean there aren't even any equivalent clothes for men - no-one wants to look at male bodies, so they don't make any clothes that would show it off.
A guy cannot get attention because of his body, it just does not work like that. The closest thing for men is a suit maybe? But that hides his body, and instead signifies status, further proving my point...
The female body has value, while the male one is fundamentally worthless, so trying to decorate it is a fools endeavor

Hi! I'm visiting New York for a few days and want to find a decent chess park to play in. I went to Union Square yesterday but there didn't seem to be too much going on there. I also went to Washington square park but couldn't seem to find anyone playing chess!
Do people only play on certain days? Or did I just go to the wrong places? Would appreciate any advice here - thanks!

2023.04.02 14:26 Ryanc91 It’s time to rebuild my credit

I had excellent credit 4 years ago when purchasing my house and then last year fell on a few hardships and Fell behind on payments for a car and a few smaller things and bam. I sit at a 550 credit score(weird all the apps say 630-40)I’ve done this before so I’m doing it again, yesterday paid off all of my credit card bills, my total credit card amounts are around $6000 and I was using about $4200 of it. Hoping to see a nice pump from that! Will be back to using it on the 10-30% ranges monthly. I also have 11 derogatory remarks, I’ll now have to face those and see what I can do. I know most are from 30-60 day late payments on my ally auto loan. It is current now but I was behind for roughly a year but am now caught up. I’m just hoping to refinance a piss poor auto loan in the future. Any tips for the derogatory hits?

2023.04.02 14:26 Curaja [37][M4F][Windsor][Ontario, Canada] '85 vintage waiting to be uncorked

About me: I'm a caucasian male, black hair, brown eyes, approximately 5'8", roughly ~140lbs range. A bit of pudge but I think I wear it well. I'm diabetic, and some diabetic neuropathy has lead to nerve damage in my lower half. Minor hit to performance which causes some concern, and part of my inclination to go to this degree to find someone as I'm afraid it's only a matter of time until I lose performance entirely and would have to rely on medications.
I've never been tested for it, but I believe I'm somewhat on the autism spectrum. I have some social anxiety issues when it comes to talking to people, some days are certainly better than others but when it's bad it's bad. I can also be pretty dour at times due to depression, and unfortunately the root of that isn't something that can easily be resolved.
Interests: Spend a lot of my time playing video games, since it's something I can do alone that doesn't require me to arrange with other people, most of the time. Been going through a big backlog of titles lately since I've decided to actually start checking off titles. I occasionally pick up an anime every so often but I don't follow any near as much as I used to.
I spend a lot of time on tabletop roleplaying games; Pathfinder, Dungeons & Dragons and the like. I've been DMing games in various systems for near on 22 years now. It's one of my major means of social interaction with people and something I find it very easy to bond with people over as the experience of a long-time campaign can make it pretty easy to foster a kind of kinship with people that you start to see as battle buddies that have been through some real grueling shit.
I'm also something of a writer, if this autobiography in progress isn't any indication.
Likes, Desires, Expectations: I'd like to find a woman within 21-36 range, 21 is hard minimum but upper range is flexible to ~40s range. Preferably also a virgin so we can both fumble through things together, but I know that's pretty unlikely and just me wanting to avoid a bit of the embarrassment that's sure to come about. Body type isn't much of an issue, I like slim and toned as much as I like plus and curvy and honestly lean more towards the heavier side if it comes down to a choice. I'm also not opposed to being with a transwoman, but with the additional caveat that I'm going to be a little more demanding on appearance. There's a line of femininity that has to be crossed before I mentally register someone as a woman regardless of their equipment, and that line is important because if I don't register someone as feminine enough it just won't work.
If this goes in the direction of a relationship, I'd like someone that doesn't mind being with a homebody that likes indoor activities, though I'm not against taking trips out to nature or visiting entertainment venues, I'm not a bar guy and being around large amounts of people makes me nervous and anxious after a while. I would make a prime househusband though and I like a specific kind of organization for peak efficiency when it comes to daily routines.
I'm down to just be V-crushed if it comes to that, but I would hope to meet someone who might be interested in more than just swapping fluids and a crisp handshake to end. I feel like there's so much more to experience in sex than just the physical act and the greatest component I want is the emotional connection of two people who care for each other as more than just something to make them feel good. I'm also kind of worried that I'd catch feelings and having such an experience with someone who is just going to then walk out of my life might just hurt, so I'd prefer if they're someone who will be around with me afterwards. If I really just wanted to dip my wick I know women that take payment for that, but that's not the experience I want.
Arrangement Concerns: I could host as I live alone but I don't know how soundproof the walls are here, though I'd also be fine with a hotel as it would probably be a better atmosphere. Unfortunately it would be too complicated for me to travel out to meet someone elsewhere as I don't have a cell phone, once I leave my apartment to go somewhere I am unable to be reached until direct in person contact is made and in today's day and age that's made it practically impossible to exist, and trying to arrange a meet outside of my city is taking a huge risk in case something goes wrong and I don't know if my anxiety could take it. The best I could possibly do is arrange to get out to Oasis in Toronto, but that's a long-term preparation kind of situation I'd only commit on with a rock solid plan in place.
In summary: Overly verbose nerd seeks a woman looking for a house gremlin that'll keep the place clean. I want help ending my feelings of solitude but I can't go far to find it. Reaching out in hope there's someone else out there looking to end their loneliness, or at least notch their post one more time. If nothing else, I hope I can find some new people to talk to. Every new face in my life is one more strand in a social web that might finally link me to someone that can fulfill my dreams.
If I sound like someone you'd like to take a shot with, send me a DM, not a chat. I dislike the chat system and probably won't notice it any sooner than a DM anyway. Tell me a little about yourself and what part of my post convinced you to message me.
Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

2023.04.02 14:25 Any-Jellyfish4095 AITA for not keeping in constant contact with my dad?

For context, I am a 19F. I recently got diagnosed with borderline personality disorder in addition to C-PTSD following a pretty traumatic childhood. About 3 years ago now, my father physically put his hands on me and threw me out his house after I forgot to give him a paper my mom had sent regarding my award ceremony for school (I live with my mom) around 11 at night. I had a hard time finding my way home as it was late, I was not in a familiar area (I saw my dad only on weekends, besides that I live in a different area.)
Fortunately, I was able to get home and my mother was extremely upset and angry. She even asked if I wanted to contact authorities but I told her it was fine. Fast forward a few months, she started to pressure me to contact him. I refused, as I had nothing to say to him and I didn’t want to relive the situation again by hearing his voice. This went on constantly, nagging me to call and talk to him. She also turned on how she felt initially and told me that my attitude was the reason he did what he did and I should call and apologize to him for getting him so upset.
About 1.5 years after the event happened, my mom took me out one day to go to what I thought was going to be a furniture store (as that’s what I was told). She ended up forcing me to meet up with him in a park without any heads up. I felt like screaming and crying and all of the above but I kept my calm. I just dissociated through most of what he told me.
But after that I was pretty much forced to keep in contact. Now that I’m older and I think and defend for myself more, I still keep in contact but not as much. I’m still scarred by what happened and I think about it every time I talk to him. Who’s to say he wouldn’t do it again at some point? He has made a huge effort to talk to me, text me, and send positive messages etc and sometimes I feel bad by not responding to them. AITA?

2023.04.02 14:25 Mcluskyist Lisa Vanderpump West Hollywood Restaurant Pump Lounge May Close or Sell

Between this and the story about her son-in-law, all is not well in Vanderpump-land. Also, I wasn't aware that she was being sued for non-payment for Villa Blanca expenses and losses due to a sexual harassment lawsuit. LVP is definitely trending towards scammer-HW territory.

2023.04.02 14:25 GreggAlan I need the latest Kobo WiFi firmware.

I have an N647 model that's bricked. It would work with the built in 101 books but Calibre couldn't detect it and the internal storage that's supposed to be accessible in Windows wasn't, so I formatted it and copied some books over.
Oops. Not the right thing to do. Safely removed it in Windows 10 then restarted the Kobo... and that's all, folks.
Going by what I've found online it looks like I can extract the internal micro SD and fix it, even upgrade its internal storage as high as 128 gig.
But I need the firmware file and instructions on how to un-brick it. Is it as simple as formatting the card to the right file system then making a folder named .kobo and dropping the firmware file in it?

2023.04.02 14:23 TailzPrower Review of Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask 3D - Despite some frustrations this game still holds up more than 20 years later. Story and atmosphere are great.

First of all, I did not really grow up with Nintendo, and Zelda games have been more of an acquired taste for me. Minish Cap was the first I finished; I ended up loving A Link Between Worlds and it is one of my favourite games. I wasn't sure I wanted to play this game because it is considered to be hard; however out of all 3D Zelda games this one intrigued me the most and was the first that I actually cared enough to finish.
I previously emulated the N64 game and did not like that you cannot save and could not figure out what needed to be done, so I put it down and did not want to start all over again, just to have the moon crash down on me. Enter the 3DS remake (played on a New 3DS XL). Tons of QoL changes and you can actually easily save the game now at owl statues. You can use the Sheikha stones for hints of what to do, including the first part that you need to return yourself to your Link form.
Premise of the Game:
Most Zelda games have a minimal story, you basically need to save the princess and kingdom from the villain Gannon and his plot to take over the world, etc. This one is quite different. Probably the biggest outlier out of the bunch. As you're riding along you get stopped by a skull kid wearing a strange Majora's Mask, he transforms you into a Deck scrub and you find yourself in a Medieval like town, Termina going through a cycle where the Moon crashes into the Earth and destroys everything.
It's up to you to recover Majora's Mask and stop the Skull Kid before he destroys the world. You have three days only but you can always play the Song of Time to go back to the first day, and move on to another temple/task.
Similar to other Zelda games in that you need to finish temples with a boss at the end and progressively get more items, as well as doing stuff between temples. It is different in that there are three masks that you can wear and each of them transforms you into a different type of creature with unique abilities. For example, being a Goron or Deku scrub. The abilities need to be used to solve puzzles, and fight enemies. There is lots of puzzle solving involved, and there is tons of optional content. The more heart pieces you find the more health you have. There are also side missions where you can gain powerful weapons or gain more stats like through finding stray fairies in a temple.
A huge improvement is even if you lose at the boss at the end of a dungeon you do NOT need to redo the entire dungeon to get to the boss. Just save your game and stand on the mask at the beginning of the temple and you can go directly into the fight. You can also use a song to slow the flow of time giving you more time to explore, I always used it.
Unlike OOT 3D this game gives you the ability to control the camera using the c-stick on the New 3DS. Although for the Goron racing and boss battle it had the tendency to go all over the place uncontrollably.
This game has a ton of side-quests, many of these are optional but they help to flesh out the town and the story. They need to be done at specific times but all are kept handy in a journal.
Some of the mini-games like the optional Goron racing (that you need to get the upgraded sword) can be annoying and tricky but are doable with some persistence. Once you get used to it the time mechanic works well. There are many permanent items that stay with you and your temple completion stays with you after you rewind time.
Only 4 of these but lots of stuff you need to do in between. They were mostly good, but I have to state my frustrations with the water Great Bay Temple. This is what made me put the game down for a while. It can be tedious and the way I couldn't see where to go I could not even see the water exit and did not figure out what to do. The in game hint was too confusing so I needed to use a guide. Next the boss at the end of that was very tricky. I only figured out later that you do not need to swim to defeat him, you can just punch his eye. I found the swimming mechanics to be cumbersome.
Twinmold as the penultimate boss was quite difficult before I looked up how he can be defeated. The boulders placed there are your friends.
The final boss also had me stumped until I looked it up online. Great Bay temple, and a few other annoyances aside I enjoyed the dungeons and world layout of the game.
The atmosphere and design here is very sombre with obvious influences from Tim Burton films. I honestly really loved it and the music towards the end of the last day. I greatly preferred this story to that of other Zelda games. Right from the get go you want to find out who this skull kid is, and why he wants to do what he wants to do. And what's the deal with the happy mask salesman. I have to say though that despite a great boss and location I was a bit disappointed with the ending. I wanted to see more of Termina and the festival they would have. Still it turned out to be simple yet moving.
This is one of the most unique Zelda games out there, especially in its story and mechanics. The 3DS version offers lots of quality of life improvements over the original, which makes it more playable. The hint system is also there for the confused such as myself. The game has a great but simple story, music, visuals and Tim Burton inspired (e.g. the Moon) world design and unlike other games is not overly long at around 25-30 hours of gameplay, but offers tons of additional content via side quests. So far this is my favourite 3D Zelda game. Arguably this and OOT haven't really been topped. It still does have its frustrations though, with some sluggish dungeons (Great Bay Temple) and some frustrating mini-games that interfere with the pacing. Definitely a must try though, and well played on a New 3DS XL (or I suppose emulation if you want a big screen). Holds up to its reputation of a classic and one of the best ever.
Score: 8.5/10 Great

2023.04.02 14:23 Fatal-Injection5683 I hate being short, I am seriously done

I am tired of being a short man (5'3)
I am 27 year old and I never had any success with anyone, it is so frustrating
all my friends are married or are in a relationship, meanwhile I couldn't get a single date
Every women I try to talk to seems annoyed or completely ignores me, or offended that I even approached them
I hate what I am and I wish if i was never born
I know I shouldn't let it get to me, but its burning me on the inside. It has killed a part of me
Every time I see a couple, my blood boils, its as if the universe is mocking me by reminding of what I cant have
I can't take this any more I am tired, I don't what to do
these depressive thoughts donot stop haunting me and chipping away at my sanity
Its turning me into a hateful person
I want you to suffer just as I did, I want to see you broken and hopeless just like I am
you deserve nothing, you never earned anything, You just got lucky enough to inherit the right bone size
You have never worked for it you never deserved it i want it taken from you
you make me sick

2023.04.02 14:18 theApurvaGaurav Launching India's first and only No Cost EMI - Cost Calculator. Check it out at

I developed India's first and only No Cost EMI - Cost Calculator that shows you the Real Cost of No Cost EMIs in terms of amount as well as IRR.
Check it out at -
Imagine this: You plan to buy a TV set for your house, but here’s the catch- you don’t have enough money to pay for it in full at present. But hey, retailer “X” is offering you a No-Cost EMI option which means that you can now split the entire cost (assume it to be Rs 25,000) into 6 easy installments at “0% interest” which means each installment should technically come out to be approximately 4167 rupees which seems to be a lucrative deal and you choose to opt for it.
Are you really getting it at “No Cost”? Lets understand:
What no one tells you is the fact that out of this 4167 rupees, a certain percentage goes towards the principal amount and the rest goes in as interest. The interest component of this payment would attract 18% GST and in addition, most credit card companies charge a processing fee which also attracts 18% GST. Both of these amounts are spread across the tenure of the loan and therefore, each installment is greater than 4167 rupees and in effect, you are paying more than 25000 after 6 months.
Therefore Zero Cost EMIs never really come at 0 cost. It is just a well packaged way of marketing a financial scheme for banks and finance companies to make a quick buck.
Don’t worry though, we here at pFinTools have got you covered. With our latest tool, we will help you understand exactly how much more you would be paying and exactly how much you stand to gain if you just make an upfront payment in full and avail any discounts or cashbacks.
Stay tuned to as we break down financial myths and build tools that make consumers understand and appreciate their relationship with money. As always, we are counting on you all for your valuable feedback to help improve our products continuously.

2023.04.02 14:16 AVroot Thinkpad t14 gen 2 (20XL) bios version

Hi there, I just got this Thinkpad new (it has coil whine I might return it and buy it again as I do love it). Upgrading all firmware in windows first put the bios to 1.21 which is the most recent the product page of the laptop mentions:

Yet after installing Ubuntu it's update center prompted me to to another bios update, now it's 1.23. I couldn't find anything about it for a wile but then found this on lenovo's site:
Here it is mentioned and also seems to be correct in terms of bios release date, the tbd is R1MET53W.

Now everything works fine with the update but did Ubuntu somehow give me an update I shouldn't be using or have they not updated the product page?

2023.04.02 14:15 Unw0kish Nationwide £10 / £20 / £40 Reward for Debit Card Use

Holders of Nationwide current accounts get 5% cashback on up to £200 of SUPERMARKET shopping in February, March & April 2023 - when paid for via your debit card, viz £10.
That applies to both card holders on a joint account - viz you can BOTH get £10 = £20.
From my reading of T&C, offer also applies if you have more than one Nationwide account, viz £10 for every £200 spent on each debit card on each account held.
It also seems to be the case that cashback is included in the total spend, thus you can speed things up by buying, say, a loaf of bread and get £50 cashback at the till at adjacent supermarkets (we have Co-op and Sainsbury Local next door to each other).
Wife & I hold joint FlexPlus and FlexDirect accounts, so hopefully looking at £120 for maximum monthly spend on four cards (£800) over three months, which we have been doing during normal weekly shop.
NB. Best to write totals for each card down as you go, no way to see what was paid for on whatever card in app, or in account online.
If you don't need all that cash, pay it back into a bank account at post office (they will not credit Nationwide accounts at post office though, so choose a different bank such as Halifax or Natwest) - or at an actual bank if you have one that has not closed down locally.
You can also pay via Apple Pay / Google Pay and / or switch qualifying payments to co-op debit card retrospectively via Curve.
NB. Payout on both cards on both accounts will not be explicitly confirmed until payments to accounts are actually made. But a complaint might produce the desired result in event of single payouts due to weak wording of T&C.
This came out in February but I cannot find any mention of it on Reddit. Could offer be extended? 🤞

2023.04.02 14:15 The_EH_Team_43 Dechonking Kitties

Dechonking Kitties
We have 2 cats, Millie, 6 and Luna, 7 years old. Their weight problem started around 3 years ago. We were feeding them around a quarter can of wet food per meal and leaving dry food and water out for them to graze on. It had been going fine until I couldn't get the dry food I normally get for them and I guess I was in a rush so I grabbed Friskies dry food.
What a horrible mistake.
Over the course of about half the bag we noticed them balloon so I got their normal food again (I think was Whiskas then) and tossed the Friskies. The problem was we didn't change procedure so they just kept on eating and they got big. Not terribly long after this we moved back in with my parents and they made their displeasure with the move known for a while but eventually settled in.
I started reading up advice on kitty weight loss, researching different weight loss foods, realising the cost of those foods, all that stressful stuff when you're worried about your fur babies. I settled on Iams weight and hairball control and started off by following the directions on the bag. I'm pretty sure it says half a cup per day for weight loss. After a month, no changes because Luna was finishing Mille's dry food and Millie was eating most of Luna's wet food when she would turn away after 5 bites.
Now Luna eats almost exclusively dry food and Millie, mostly wet food. We split a whole can of Fancy Feast between them and Luna only eats the turkey flavours. And after some experimenting they get 1/3 of a cup of dry food split, more for Luna less for Millie, and they seem to actually be slimming down.
My request for advice comes from wanting to help calm their attitudes. They're cordial between meal times but when food is supposed to be coming soon Luna usually instigates a fight, sometimes Millie does. When given catnip toys Luna fights Millie so she can't have one. We're managing and they seem to be getting slightly better as they lose weight but at least once a week they get pretty nasty with each other.
Any help is appreciated.
