Unbelievable first attempt at coin roll hunting
Insane results from first attempt at CRH. Been lurking in here for a little while, finally decided to pull the trigger. I picked up $300 in half dollars today. That’s all they had at that branch. 12 rolls were machine rolled, with very new looking ends. 18 rolls were hand rolled some with scotch tape and what not on them. The machine rolls were all 2021 uncirculated. The 18 hand rolls, I ended up getting 22 40% jfk halfs. 11 90% jfks and the 4 Benjamin Franklin half pictured. Couldn’t believe it

2023.06.08 20:55 Visible_Gate_9503 GHSI-Another post

So yea, GHSI today as I write. Went from 6-7.75 on pathetic volume. Congrats to those who played and made something. It is back at 6.10 as I write.
So not sure what to make of this.
It's one of two things. One, a final pump/dump before an offering comes. Seen this happen a lot.
Or two, it's an aggressive "test buy" to check the float. I have also seen this happen, albeit not as big of a spike that happened today.
This one just got trickier for me. I would have liked to see the 1m volume buy come and jump this 100%. We could have all made out.
As such, I'm debating what I'll do. I'm going to give it a few days. I will either sell for even, or I will double down that it was #2 as I stated above.

2023.06.08 20:55 kalarepar My experience with Palace of Ice

I've finished it today, just wanted to share my thoughts that probably no one will be interested with. I'll try to not spoil anything of the story. I've played on normal difficulty. My team composition:
The good (those two guys did most of the job(:
Cold race Dragonborn Path of the Stone Barbarian with 2h weapon. I thought it will make me immune to cold weather, but it didn't. Nevertheless just the class itself was very strong both for tanking and dealing damage, was doing 60 dmg crits to final boss. I regret leaving the Eastern quest for the last, because that's where I found the only legendary 2h weapon alond with strength items at shop. I think perhaps dual wield would be even stronger?
Tiefling Warlock Timeskeeper. Great ranged damage dealer with pushing, few strong spells and other tricks. The subclass was great, extra damage, extra action once per long rest and can avoid big hits once per long rest.
The bad:
Half-elf Bard College of Heroism with a bow/crossbow. He did next to no damage until I've found legendary light crossbow at the Western quest. The subclass wasn't that great tbh, extra hit from Thundering Voice and that's it. I haven't used the active skills even once. Bardic Inspiration seems a little bit underwhelming compared to bards in the other CRPGs. It's just a mix of weak mage and weak archer.
Snow Dwarf Circle of Balace Druid. The class and race itself isn't bad, but my choices were. I wanted a melee druid, but I forgot that he can't use metal armor. And can't cast spells with a shield. And that dwarf has short legs. My biggest mistake was not taking a ranged nuke cantrip. Most of the time he summoned something or put down the thorns spell and turned into a heal bot. The subclass is a very good healer, so I can't complain about that. Shapeshifting seemed a little bit underwhelming, why do those forms had so little hp?
Despite all my mistakes, the game wasn't that hard, I should've rise difficulty. The only fight I had to retry few times was the Remorhaz or whataever it's called. I does crazy damage and I just couldn't survive it, until my bard managed to disable him with the Hilarity spell. As for the game itself, I think it's too short to call it a sequel, it is what it is. DLC that lets you level up to 16. The story is pretty simple and I'm pretty sure that the final boss with his evil laugh was a joke made by the devs.

2023.06.08 20:54 Overall_Shoulder8485 How to handle preteens lying

Starting out: They’re kids. I get it. I just need advice with figuring out a natural consequence.
Situation: It’s the last day of school and they get out early. They go to after school care because my partner and I work. It’s open today.
My stepson (11) had my bio son (9) call to tell me they needed to be picked up earlier and that there was no after school care today.
Problem is, my bio son doesn’t lie to me often. He knows if he told me his true feelings of, “it’s the last day of school, can we just come home,” the answer would be yes. When he does lie, he’s also terrible at it. I could clearly hear him being coached on what to say in the background.
I don’t want to just punish them for doing what they could to start their summer vacation. But I want them to understand that they shouldn’t lie, not to encourage each other to lie, and that this lie resulted in me having to take time off work at the last minute and why that is wrong.
Besides a talk, what would be a good natural consequence? I was thinking about having them cleaning their room and staying inside until my “work day” hours were over. Hoping this would show them that by doing the right thing, they could have just hung out with their friends at after school care.
As a note: My stepsons other household is chaotic. He learned that lying helps him. He’s not a bad kid and not for nothing, he’s a preteen. We’re trying to work through it.

2023.06.08 20:54 powerff The Mint APN Settings that allowed calls, texts, group texts, for me on Android

I just wanted to post and let anyone know who is setting up a new service what has worked for me. Im not sure how any of this worked but the problem I was having was I set up a new service today, 8Jun2023. I have a Android Pixel 4A. Switched this morning from Google Fi. At first calls were the only thing working. Texts were coming from the temp Mint number I had. I fixed that by going to settings-messages settings-rcs chats-tun off rcs chats toggle, turn on, enter my ported number, and turn on off about 5 times before it accepted the number. This allowed calls and texts from my ported number. Group texts were not working however at all. Just immediately failed. This is what I tried:
Mint Faqs:
tried both mmsc, neither worked.

Tried taro_theclumsy_hiker suggestion here:
This did not help.

Went to this website: also this:
that didnt help.

Finally just deleted all the APNS and the default T-Mobile US one just made everything work.
Name:T-Mobile US
MMS port: not set
APN Type:default,supl,is,mms
APN Protocol: IPv6
APN roaming protocol: IPv4
Everything else was either none or not set

Group texts, regular texts, picture texts, picture group texts, calls, data, everything as far as i can tell works for me. I have groups of 3-4-5 ppl. So idk about groups larger than that.

Hope this helps anyone looking

2023.06.08 20:51 karasuuchiha MOASS Adoption, a 3 Part Series, Gaming and DeFi

Fluff and Love
GME! I love you 🦍s, your amazing, your awesome, your the coolest in the world! Your 💎🙌s are the hardest around and you’ve earned every bit of your reward!!! Don’t forget that, you did good, you fought evil and you won!!!! Remember 🦍s💪together!!!, we have so many beautiful Allies! More then we could ever dream!!! Truly I’m am ready; tomorrow becomes today!
So now let me get down to the main reason your reading this MOASS, tho I hope my words of love and gratitude reach your 💜
The 4 types of MOASS, Web3 Gaming $IMX, Decentralized Finance (DeFi) $ETH/$LRC, NFT Asset Adoption! GameStops MP, and the Classic and my favorite $GME MOASS(Tho I love them all equally, my favorite involves us and I think that’s just the greatest, plus it moves the timeline to today! Let’s make MOASS today!! :))
#1 Web3 Gaming MOASS Adoption: The first one is pretty well known, most are fully aware of it but I’ll quote our partner Robbie of @ImmutableX for this one “It's clear the next bull run will be driven entirely by mainstream web3 game, on ethereum with immutable and @0xPolygonLabs. We will be there within 12 months - and this time, sustainably.” “ok so we have a 12 month Timeline, so what?” This what: “Gaming is bigger than music, movies, and TV combined.It's compounding 10% year on year. The $100bn a year spent "renting" items is going to turn into a trillion dollar ownable economy. All of it will be built on web3.” For the long term prospects of a year this is stupidly BULLISH for #Gmerica($GME $LRC $IMX $ETH $Pepe ($Pepe is on @Loorping) 💎🙌🏴‍☠️🚀🚀🚀🚀. Im so excited to see @Illuvium and (Gods Unchained for regular web3 gaming adoption, these are just 2 of the many many AAA Web 3 DeFi games coming out fully SOON!!! (And are already playable) :)
Part 2

2 Decentralized Finance MOASS Adoption

For MOASS DeFi Adoption we have @Loopring! which first step is bringing CEX Crypto into the DeFi world of Gmerica🏴‍☠️! Now to quote our DeFi Partner Bryon :) “We’re at a major inflection point. Centralization failures left and right. Exchanges + lending platforms losing customer funds. Banks failing because of centralized planning. Judges + courts ruling that if you store your funds on a centralized platform, you’re giving up ownership of those assets if the company fails. Everything is pointing towards crypto. Everything is pointing towards DeFi + self-custody as the future. The world will move to self custody as they learn this is the only way to truly own their hard earned assets. The timing couldn’t be better for our upcoming major Block Trading feature. Access the worlds best liquidity from the comfort of your self-custody wallet. Then experience everything else Loopring L2 has to offer once you’re there. Dual Investments, Staking, Trading, NFTs, Gaming. A true CEX-like experience without having to give up custody (ownership) over your assets. @loopringorg is building the future to enable the world to be their own bank from the comfort + security of their self-custody (self-owned) wallet. Now is the time - this next crypto bull market will pull the world into crypto and we’ll be ready🫡 Step 1: ✅bring CEX users over to DEX Step 2: ✅build the best one-stop shop ecosystem that allows you to #BeYourOwnBank so you never have to leave” Those who are use to a system of lies and thievery with manipulation, where CEXs, Banks, and Brokers don’t actually have your coins, cash, or stocks, will get to see what it is to truly #BeYourOwnBank and to #OwnYourOwnAssets, as the CEXs, Banks and Brokers fail, the flight from all of centralized finance and to secure transparent DeFi will cause a rally of a life time. All 4 paths for MOASS/MOASS adoption feeds into each other, the whole gaming economy of Gmerica🏴‍☠️ does! That’s our DeFi MOASS Adoption!!! Building the best Crypto Smart Wallet and DeFi Trading Exchange in the world!!!!! (What’s extra interesting is Loopring now has Block Trades, well seemingly inconsequential overall beyond offering an even better experience on Loopring what happens when a CEX exchange starts selling the DeFi tokens from their treasury (which is likely not enough to cover the accounts they custodian for) to Truly DeFi wallets?!?!? ;)💎🙌🏴‍☠️🚀🚀🚀🚀) Loopring also has another trick up it’s sleeve when it added $Pepe, I’m extremely bullish on its prospects when more and more holders jump in, tho it has trillions of coins, that’s not a bad thing it’s actually great for BILLIONS of users :) atm there’s around 100k Holders keeping $Pepe at around .5B market cap, it hasn’t been listed on many CEXs still, so many opportunities in the land of Gmerica🏴‍☠️ I’m so grateful to be an 🦍 and GMErican the future truly is look bright for us all :) option 2/Loopring is also extra special because of its financial scalability, everything and every asset will run on loopring through GameStops MP the determination of value will finally be fully in the direct hands of the Players :) PowerToThePlayers PowertoThePeople PowerToTheWorld GameStop now in Gmerica :)

2023.06.08 20:50 bunnybise feeling a little behind at my tech writing job and feeling nervous

i just want to vent a bit. i started this job around march and i feel completely lost. i’m fresh out of college since may so i feel like when i accepted the job offer i think i bit a little more than i can chew trying to juggle finals and working full time. i know it’s typical to feel lost up until almost a year (from what i hear from my coworkers and my bf who also works in defense at a diff company) but idk i already feel so overwhelmed and i feel like i may not be progressing.
i’m a technical writer for a small defense company. i feel like the way how they do things around here is a bit unorganized and i feel like everyone knows this. my coworkers have complained to one another that there needs to be some sort of formal training and one on one at this job since there is so much complicated jargon to pick up on and there’s a lot to learn overall for the military. i’m working on this one manual and i’m apparently the third person to work on it. i’ve had to get with the engineer to discuss how each part works for the graphics I have to ask from the graphics team and i still was extremely confused coming out of it.
today i just had a quick meeting with the assistant PM and PM about my progress and they feel like I’m a bit behind. the deadline for this project is in like 2 months and my manual is almost done and all i have to do is insert the graphics images? i guess they saw i didn’t have much activity today (because i didn’t message/reply to anything in the group on teams?? i’m rather confused on that..) and that they were going to put me in a more structured team/training where i can get more one on one because the team i’m currently in right now, isn’t as structured as that one. i’m already discouraged from the company due to it’s benefits but hearing this leaves me a bit more discouraged?
i’m just starting to think that working in military/defense isnt really my forte, unless this company in particular isn’t great itself either. tech writers here at this company have a high turnover rate anyways and i feel like i shouldn’t beat myself up too much.
anyways just kinda curious if anybody else has been in the same position before and how they overcame the issue. im kind of tempted to leave eventually since i don’t see myself in this company for long. i feel like it could be something as simple as that the company isnt the right fit for me
tldr; new tech writer at somewhat unorganized small defense company for 3 months and feeling discouraged and can’t really grasp anything. being put in a different team for more training and one on one

2023.06.08 20:50 lone_wolf_424 How to go about learning about alters

Hey so I was diagnosed a year ago. I had no clue what was going on really and had an idea of two possible alters. Over the last year I’ve gone through a lot that stopped a lot of progress that was happening but we were comfortable in being a system of three with one who was in denial and believes at max we’ve 2.
Well last week our little thought about explaining our DID and mentioned that we’re 5 but don’t talk about the other two. I’ve talked it through with our therapist today and we came to the understanding that I had recognised one of the alters before and at a point our little came out to confirm that that was one of them and they were a non human part. My therapist then questioned about the 5th and our little got a bit distressed and said we weren’t meant to talk about them and when questioned who said that they said they didn’t want to talk about this anymore. I couldn’t really tell who they were feeling about that stuff other than they didn’t want to talk and I’ve questioned before over the last week and they’ve not answered.
I know it’s in large part due to our other alter that is mostly in denial and won’t deal too well with extras being added but I need to work out if there are others out there and what they need or if our other alter is right and they are just imaginary by our little .

2023.06.08 20:49 ThrowRAlurkingllama My (18F) boyfriend (20M) doesn't open up about his problems and I don't know what to do.

My boyfriend and I have only been dating for around 3 months.
He's never been the type to want to talk about his feelings or mainly what's bothering him. Whenever I ask, he'd say don't worry about it or not answer the question. Overtime I kinda just learned that he's not comfortable to do that (yet, maybe) as I know these types of people exist. I never want to push or pry. But honestly I think at this time he needs a little push. He's also not overly affectionate but I know he is a soft person inside. But sometimes, I'm starting to think he might be emotionally unavailable...? If that's right to think.
Today he told me he's so stressed out. I asked why, as usual he said don't worry about it, and he just wanted to say that he is. I let it go and wished him well in other ways. He hasn't been replying much to the reels/posts that I send him today, but he does send some back though.
Then eventually he just replied with lol to something I said and that's when I asked if he's okay, because to me it was a sign that he wasn't. Then he replied with no. I asked what's wrong, and he said a lot and that he needs space. And that's it. I wanted to clarify it. How did he want the space thing to work out, and for how long?
Then I see him on another app talking in a group as if nothing is wrong. This is the part that bothers me most. He was just telling me that there's a lot that's wrong rn and that he needed space, but he's acting like everything is fine to others? He was talking and replying to them while he didn't even get back to me when I asked what he meant by wanting space. I'm glad to give him his space, I just need it to be defined.
It makes me feel really stuck when I know something is wrong and I don't know what to do. I don't know because he won't tell me anything. I don't know how to act around him or what to say to him. I don't know when the bad thing starts or ends. Just accepting whatever and acting like nothing is wrong in the next conversations feels so wrong.
I'm planning on just taking a break from him for one day. Just to clear my head and feel better about everything because I honestly don't know what to do. That gives him his space at the same time. Depending on what he says within that day, I'll try to bring it up soon. Is this a good idea?

2023.06.08 20:47 Ok_Importance4105 16 days post op

16 days post op
I had put off surgery for years. The toes crossing was final straw and I felt I needed to go in. Wish I had gone in years ago.
Things I wish I knew — they tell you to sleep in a boot. With our dog sleeping with us and the heavy air boot, I’d be afraid to give our dog an injury during the night. Moved to guest room and still couldn’t wear the boot and sleep because it is so heavy. Found a lighter weight post op shoe online and asked doc in appt today if I could wear that instead and he said yes. Wish I had ordered that at the get go.
Still have to have other foot done at some point and will. The other foot won’t require a pin. Every day and week gets better.
Thank you for all the tips & advice provided here. Hand held shower head, wedge pillow for both feet — all great advice. My contribution for those going in — get a lighter weight bunion shoe for the sleeping part.

2023.06.08 20:44 inspired-chaos medical accommodation request denied?

 a little background, about a week ago i fainted at work. i went into the walk in clinic and told the doctor everything, including the fact that my heart rate shortly before i passed out was at around 130 bpm. he was immediately alarmed and gave me an urgent referral to a cardiologist, because when they took my heart rate, it was actually lower than it should have been as well. he suggested i wear my apple watch until i’m able to see a cardiologist so that i could monitor my heart rate and share the data with that doctor once i see them. i got doctors note, brought it up to my sm(who was honestly relieved, because i’d been mentioning the health issues i’ve been having with her) and she sent the accommodation request for me. jump to today, i just received a call where i was told that accommodation could not be made because of food safety rules. the thing that’s throwing me off is that i’ve actively seen this accommodation made for other partners for long-term, so i’m not quite understanding why they’re denying my request for a temporary accommodation. they suggested i get a different form of heart monitor(as if i have the money for that?) and when i answered ‘no’ to them asking if i felt comfortable working without my watch until then, they suggested i go on loa. so i guess my main question is has anyone else here had this accommodation made for them? what had to be said to make that happen? they didn’t seem to care about the fact that i had a doctors note whatsoever.

2023.06.08 20:44 IJustLikeRainbowsOK Massachusetts Landlord keeping most of security deposit unreasonably and is over legal timeframe

Hey y’all. Any thoughts/advice/support would be great here. Here’s the situation:
1) The clearest legal issue here is that we moved out on April 30, 2023, but actually left earlier and a walkthrough was done a few days prior to 4/30. We were not notified of any issues after the walkthrough of the apartment initially and had to send multiple emails to finally get a response on May 4 that there was damage that we would be responsible for (more on that in part 2). We were told that we would be sent an invoice for the damage (as required by law) and a balance would be returned if there was any money left from our $2550 security deposit, but we would be sent a bill if it didn’t cover the damage. We haven’t heard a word from the landlord since May 4. Fast forward, it’s now June 8, by my calculations that’s 10 days after the 30 day legal period where we were supposed to receive a) an invoice or estimate for the damage repairs signed by her and b) the balance of the security deposit. Today we reached out to ask what the status was and she said the work was finished last week and she was traveling so she will send the invoice and balance tonight. Am I correct to say that she has broken the law as it clearly states she had 30 days to give us these and failed to do so?
2) her claims of damage were incredibly unreasonable in my opinion. She is charging us to replace the entire kitchen countertop plus the cost of plumbers to remove the sink and reinstall it due to a sliver of the cheap edge of the countertop peeling off while we lived there. This was a cheap vinyl type counter covering and literally got stuck to my shirt as I was walking by one day and peeled of. It wasn’t due to neglect. She was hostile when explaining this to us and claimed we should have told her about this immediately after we told her it was already falling apart. No other damage was done to the counter but she said she had to replace the whole thing on our dime because they don’t make that 4 inch x 1 inch strip on the side that needs to be replaced in the same color anymore. This feels like either normal wear and tear or incredibly unreasonable to charge us almost $2550 for it.
I’d love any feedback or advice on next steps. My ex is hell bent on taking her to court so I assume that’s what’s going to happen. He thinks that under the MA law, we may get 3x the amount of the security deposit back.
I’d post a photo of the countertop cause it’s wild to see how small/minor the damage is, but I can’t add it to this post.

I finished my Final interview with Epic more than two months ago as a new college grad. After that I've only been reached out by recruiting a few times on background checks and updates on transcripts. I am very confused at this point because I heard it usually just take two weeks after the final interview and I am trying to find an answer somewhere as recruiting is not responding. I am just wondering how long did it take for you guys to receive an offer after the final interview. I hope this is relevant to this subreddit.

2023.06.08 20:43 Icy-Actuator5524 Internal trials: The Plague of Sleep

Hi, my name is Ethan, and I don't know where to post this without sounding crazy. You see, I've been plagued by a relentless combination of sleep insomnia and sleep paralysis for what feels like an eternity. It's a living nightmare, and I'm reaching out, hoping that someone, somewhere, might understand or offer a glimmer of guidance.
At the age of 29, I find myself trapped in a never-ending cycle of exhaustion and torment. When I finally manage to drift off to sleep, I am abruptly jolted awake, my body paralyzed, and my mind teetering on the edge of reality. It's as if unseen forces hold me captive, their presence haunting my every sleep-deprived moment.
But there's something more to my story. It began when I stumbled upon a flyer, promoting a secret medical trial by an unspecified company. Desperate for a solution, I signed up, thinking it might hold the key to my liberation from this sleep-induced torment.
Little did I know the depths of darkness I was descending into. The trial took place in a secluded facility hidden deep within the forest. I was surrounded by others, each with their own sleep-related afflictions, all seeking relief. The researchers, shrouded in mystery, administered their experimental treatments, promising hope and respite.
However, as the days turned into weeks, it became clear that this trial was unlike anything I could have imagined. Instead of finding relief, I delved deeper into a nightmarish existence. The treatments triggered vivid hallucinations, nightmarish visions that bled into my waking hours. Shadows whispered secrets, and the lines between reality and illusion blurred beyond recognition.
In the dead of night, I would wake to find myself paralyzed, unable to move, while dark figures watched from the shadows. It was as if the trial had opened a gateway to a realm teeming with malevolent forces. Demons, with eyes like smoldering embers, clawed at the edges of my sanity. They whispered twisted promises, tempting me to surrender to their macabre dance.
Haunted by the realization that I had become a pawn in a sinister game, I yearned for escape. The forest surrounding the facility seemed to mirror the depths of my torment. Ancient trees whispered secrets of forgotten rituals and unspeakable horrors. I found myself drawn deeper into its twisted embrace, seeking answers, seeking a way out.
But the more I delved into the forest's secrets, the more I realized that my fate was intertwined with the very essence of the trial itself. The researchers, their intentions veiled in darkness, had awakened forces beyond their control. They had created a conduit, a gateway between realms, and I, along with my fellow participants, were caught in its grasp.
Now, as I share this tale with trembling hands, I am left with unanswered questions and a deep-seated fear. What lies beyond the veil of my sleep-induced torment? Will I ever break free from this relentless cycle? I can only hope that by sharing my story, someone out there might hold the key to understanding this nightmarish journey, this secret unknown medical trial that has plunged me into the depths of darkness.

So I have a linktree already and have some affiliate marketing links but I am not 100% sure how to push the sale. Today I finally got delivered the Krak’in things I saw on TikTok and got approved to be an affiliate but I’m not sure how to push them to buy the products other than giving them my Snapchat with a link. Anyone already doing this?

2023.06.08 20:41 Few_Rooster1190 Was I being an unreasonable patient at any point?

I’m an FY1, but in this scenario I’m the patient, so looking for the perspective of GPs or other doctors if you were the one dealing with me.
Last month I contacted my GP surgery for a referral. I was previously diagnosed overseas but didn’t require any treatment as I wasn’t symptomatic. However symptoms have since recurred, hence I wanted the referral to the local secondary care service.
I didn’t see the GP (or have a tele-consult), but he sent me some forms to fill in and to bring along the relevant documentation. I did so on the same day. It turns out the text message platform they used had no ‘reply’ function that I could attach the forms to. So I went down to the practice. After some discussion the receptionist (R1) said to e-mail them, which I did so, and got R1 to verbally confirm that all required paperwork has been received. Therefore, the next step would be these will be sent to the GP for him to send off the referral.
About two weeks later I called to check on the status of the referral. It was another receptionist (R2) that answered. She told me that on the system it says they are still waiting for my documents. I said I had submitted all required documents on the day itself, and I was told all that’s left is for the GP to complete the referral. So R2 checks again, and says ‘oh yes we do have the documents’, so she changes the tagging(?) such that it is now flagged to the GP for him to complete.
I call again two days later. It is yet another receptionist (R3). To my horror, R3 says ‘no it doesn’t seem like we have the required documents, can you send them over again?’ At this point I was getting very confused and frustrated by the process. Along with re-sending the documents, I included in my e-mail the whole timeline so far, from my point of view.
R3 called me the next day to confirm that the documents are received and have now been sent to the GP. I asked if there was a possibility that my documents (containing my medical history) have been filed under some other patient’s record, given that I have definitely provided them, and apparently now they are not found on the system. R3 said they have checks in place to prevent this. I then asked if R3 could provide a written reply to my e-mail, acknowledging the documents have been received and have been passed on to the GP. She seemed slightly unwilling but eventually did so.
Finally, 28 days after I originally provided the documents, I receive a text saying my GP has sent my referral off.
Yesterday, I happened to see the website of the service I was getting referred to. It mentions that the waiting list is several months, if not a year. At the same time, it mentions possibility of utilising Right to Choose to consider alternative services, including private providers that see NHS-funded patients. I had not known of this possibility before, so I didn’t ask about this initially.
This morning, I rang up the surgery again and after completing the triage form (stating the existing referral but I wanted to discuss RTC), was assigned a same-day phone call from a GP. Unfortunately, the phone rang just as I was in the toilet, so I missed the call. This GP (a different one from before) left a voicemail saying that she would get her secretary to send me some forms to fill in. I contact the secretary and was given the same exact forms I filled in a month ago. I clarify with the secretary if she wants me to fill in the same forms again, given that I had already done so and there is an existing referral in place. The secretary, understandably, doesn’t know and advised me to see if I can speak to the doctor again.
I visit the surgery in-person and spoke with a receptionist (R5). Initially she saw the updates on my record and said no I cannot get another phone call with the GP. I then explained the queries I had, and that I just needed to clarify some things with someone who is aware of the pathways (i.e. the GP). R5 then said she will fill in a form and send it to the GP, and the GP will call me within the day. I asked R5 what time it might be, not to rush them, but just to have some expectation, and was told any time between 1530 and 1830. R5 sounded very understanding to my situation so I was hopeful that I could finally speak to the GP (even if as a phone call).
I went back home to wait. By 1745, I’ve not received a call so I rang the surgery again (their phone lines close at 1800). Another receptionist (R6) answers. R6 tells me that their final appointment was at 1710, and the GP that I was awaiting a call from has long left the surgery. So I explain what I was told. R6 says R5 did fill in a form, but it was categorised as ‘routine referral’, so the wait time is up to 48 hours. Again, this was very different from what I was told, so I asked R6 why R5 would tell me ‘up to 1830’, if the doctor wasn’t even staying till that late? R6 started to say that I was being nit-picky and argumentative, since I would have had to wait either way, since it was up to 48 hours. R6 also said that I should remain focused on the solution, which is to continue to wait for the call.
On the one hand, I get what R6 is saying. On the other, this feels like yet another miscommunication. Therefore, my questioning ‘why’ is not to pinpoint blame, but to find out why there seems to be different things told to me by different members of staff. If R5 had told me ‘48 hours’ from the start, I would have tailored my expectations accordingly, and need not have called again at 1745.
It has felt like different receptionists are seeing different things from my record, even though there should only be one version of it. Because a lot of the communication was done verbally (via telephone), I don’t have any written documentation e.g. e-mails that I can use to refer back on.
For those that have read all this, do you feel at any point I was being an ‘unreasonable’ or ‘difficult patient’? I know how GPs (and practically the entire NHS) is struggling at the moment, so I do try and be understanding, but it is very frustrating to be told different things by different people. Throughout the conversations I have not raised my voice at anyone. But what R6 said made me wonder if I might not have been as calm and measured as I thought I was being? Keen to hear others’ opinions.

2023.06.08 20:41 Mista9000 Perfectly Safe Demons -Ch 14- Bruised and cheerful

[Chapter One]

Prev and Next

Rosifo Girtwoud woke up feeling sore and exhausted. He slept well, but never as long as he’d have liked. He could hear his roommates moving around and getting ready for their days. Sitting up in bed, he stretched and took stock. His new job was physically demanding, but it was the best job he’d ever had. By a lot. He loved having his own room in a nice place, all thanks to his generous new salary! He could even afford to eat as much as he wanted, a luxury he’d not even dreamed was possible. Last night he ate three helpings of honey glazed pork at the pub! Still clumsy from sleep, Ros shrugged on a tunic and clean slacks, pausing for a second to appreciate the lordly quality of the garments. He still couldn’t believe he owned such nice things, and the Chief just gave it to him! Well, everyone got a few, but that didn’t make it any less special. Ros put on his belt as he went downstairs to the kitchen, where a few of his roommates were eating breakfast and the landlady was pulling some fresh buns out of the wood fired oven.
“Hey there’s the champ now!” called out Rikad, his housemate and co-worker.
“Heh, there are some perks to being the lightest guy on the squad!” Ros replied, referring to the agility drill he had won at work yesterday. Three days a week of training was by far the hardest part of the job, being trained by the Chief was like weathering a storm. Terrifying and dangerous, but something you could be proud of surviving. The other three days a week they worked were a holiday in comparison. Sitting on carts and standing by warehouses was easy.
Ros devoured his huge bowl of sweetened oats and then three buttered fresh buns. Pushing back from the long table with a satisfied sigh, he got up to leave for work with Rikad. The spring morning air was brisk, and they made sure to stay out of the way of loaded carts and riders that zipped by on the narrow cobblestone streets.
“What do you reckon the Chief will have us do today?” Rikad asked.
Ros snorted, “Quit embarrassing ourselves and pick up the pace?”
“Hah! That’s hardly a guess! I liked the knife throwing we did a few weeks ago, that was fun. I hope it’s not all runs and drills, I’m still aching from yesterday,” Rikad said.
“Yeah, I like combat drills. Other than when I have to spar with the Chief. He’s like a mountain that’s fast. I think the day I get a point on him, I’ll buy the whole team a beer!” Ros motioned a lunging jab as they walked.
“We’ll be too old to drink by then!” Rikad teased.
They were in for a typical training routine, a morning lecture on tactics and formations, some solo weapon drills, a short run, then a hearty lunch delivered from the nearby deli. Other days they just called a food cart into the yard with them, but Ros liked the deli lunches better. Also the novelty of someone else buying his lunches was thrilling. Ros assumed that this must be how pretty girls felt all the time. Maybe less sore and less yelled at. But maybe not.
The real highlight of the day was Ros got to see the owner of the whole company when he came out to observe their exercises. Ros hadn’t seen a real lord up close before he started at Pandemonium, and he thought it was one of the biggest perks. Mostly he looked like a tired doctor or shopkeeper, but Ros wasn’t disappointed. He had a nobility of his bearing, clarity in his eyes and an aura of authority. Even the Chief changed when he was around him! Seeing the him defer to anyone spoke volumes to their importance. Not only was he the lord of a whole company, he was also a mage! They were super rare even before the Church started purging all those heresies in their College of Magic, but now he wasn’t even sure there were any in the city!
“Agility drills are done! Imma talk to Mage Thippily, so you lot do some king of the hill sparring; Sword ‘n board! Ros and Kedril start!” boomed Chief of Security Stanisk.
Ros staggered exhaustedly to the equipment racks to get an arming jacket, leather helm, training sword and shield.
“Mage Thippliy is watching,” he whispered reverentially to himself as he geared up.
“Mind your tone or he’ll turn you into a turnip!” called Rikad.
Kedril grinned, “Hah, He’ll turn you into a turnip, Rik. He’ll just look at Ros and see his work is already done!”
Ros used to despise Kedril. He embodied everything Ros had yearned to become: handsome, confident, affluent, and sharp-witted. The team's dynamic was confrontational, rife with competition; they raced, fought, and scored against one another all day, three days a week. It had taken Ros a while to grasp that they were, in fact, a team. Kedril, infuriatingly attractive, devoted time to helping Ros in a few drills last week and offered valuable advice. So, albeit begrudgingly, Ros began to admire him. Kedril was older by a few years, substantially larger, and appeared to be one of the few who already had some training in arms. The prospect of sparring with him didn’t excite Ros.
Fresh from drills and immediately thrown into sparring, sweat trickled into Ros's eyes. The sting impaired his vision. He repeated to himself, 'Elbows in, shield up, tip forward, hips back,’ partially to fix his stance, partially to focus. Kedril was typically in better shape than him, but now appeared even more worn out. His guard was lax and messy, creating a gaping opening. Ros seized the opportunity and struck with a swift, precise jab. In the fleeting instant the jab took, Kedril's shield snapped into position, and his tip dealt a solid blow to Ros's ribs just beneath his sword arm. It was a feint - a brilliantly executed display of weakness where he was most prepared, exactly the tactic Stanisk had explained yesterday.
“Mashed Turnip!” Kedril shouted to the cheers of the others.
“Ros! You lost because your stance is awful! Keep lower! Coiled spring, lad!” the Chief shouted from across the yard.
Ros raised his hands over his head to cede the point and sat at the end of the bench. He hated losing, but he had expected to lose. He gratefully grabbed a cup of water and watched Kedril make short work of a few more challengers. It seemed like they were picking on him, but Ros was coming to understand they were also bonding with him, and these might be the closest friends he’d ever had. Not that it was a high bar, and he didn’t like all of them, but they had his back, and that meant a lot. Finally Jourgun, the biggest lad on the team, tore into Kedril with so much energy and fury that no amount of clever tactics could stop him. Even though he knew these were his friends, seeing Kedril getting bashed in the face with a shield was almost as good as seeing a real mage!
One thing Ros appreciated about training days was that they were shorter. After the sparring, Stanisk pulled aside Kedril and Jourgun for additional work, and dismissed the rest of the men. Ros trailed behind some of his newfound friends to a peculiar place where one would sit, fully naked, in a steam-filled room, all for two glucks.
“This is a sex thing, right?” Ros asked Rikad cautiously.
“What?! Light, no! It’s to relax and heal," Rikad explained. "They place herbs on hot rocks, we sit there, sweat, and breathe in the steam. It’s excellent, you’ll love it!”
“Sounds like we’re all naked and sweaty, though?” Ros remained convinced this was some intimate activity he wasn’t fully grasping. Rikad rolled his eyes and even paid Ros’s entry fee.
Inside the dim, tiled room was surprisingly comfortable. The steam smelled slightly of herbs and medicine, and it was so thick he couldn’t even see the far wall. A quick survey of the others revealed they were just as covered in bruises as he was, which gave Ros a fresh sense of camaraderie. They towelled off, dressed, drank some cold water, and left the strange business without any hint of the carnal encounter Ros had suspected. Despite his lingering confusion about the whole place, Ros liked it and wanted to come back. He appreciated his squadmates not making a single steamed turnip joke. He was hoping that didn’t stick as a nickname, he felt it didn’t remotely suit him.
After the steam, their muscles relaxed and the day's tension eased away. Ros and Rikad were starving. It had been hours since lunch, so they headed to a nearby tavern for drinks and dinner. Being able to simply enjoy food and drink without concern for the price was an intoxicatingly fresh experience. In fact, Ros enjoyed this newfound freedom even more than the meal itself.
After a huge dinner and a few beers Ros paused, and opened up a little.
"Did you know this is the pub where I talked the Chief into hiring me?"
"Really? To be honest, I've always wondered about that. No offence, but you're a lot smaller than the rest of us." Rikad pushed away his empty plate, taking a long drink of his beer.
"Yeah, I saw the Chief in here, dressed like a shining champion, buying ladies drinks and rounds for the whole bar. He was so confident and kind and relaxed. But also obviously dangerous. I’d never seen anyone like him!" Ros gestured to the tavern maid for a refill. "I must have been a sight. My clothes were more patch than original cloth, I was so skinny you could've counted my ribs through a sweater. Not that I had sweater money!" Ros reflected on the lean muscle he'd gained in recent months with inward satisfaction.
"Did the Chief take you for a beggar?"
Ros bristled at the suggestion. "Hell no! I've never begged in my life, I've always earned my keep!" his brief flare of indignation faded immediately. "No, he thought I was a refugee, from some starving backwater. Of course, I corrected him—after he bought me dinner!"
"Hah! The proper sequence," Rikad agreed, laughing.
"Anyway, he asked about my plans. I told him I was waiting till I was eighteen to join the army and serve the Emperor."
"You've certainly filled out since I met you, but I'm not sure you'd pass the army physical even now," Rikad cautiously speculated.
"The Chief was blunter about it. 'Yer so scrawny, a necromancer would find ya offputting, the army ain't gonna waste rations on ya.'" Ros imitated Stanisk’s gruff rural northerner accent.
"Hah! That sounds about right. Which makes your wearing company purple less clear than ever!" Rikad replied.
"Well, he asked if I knew my way around the city. I said I've tread every cobblestone here, so he offered me a job running letters and picking up parcels. Better work than sweeping alleys for a half-gluck and stale bread. I figured a fancy man like him would pay alright."
The waitress finally brought the next round, and Ros paused to take a long drink. Setting his mug down, he continued. "I walked into the Chief's office, and there he was behind that tiny desk with his book and quill. He looked like a cave troll trying to be a librarian. But I wasn't gonna laugh—it was still the Chief. He said, 'We don’t got a lot for now but I’ll give you a list in the morning, and see that it gets done.' I said ain’t fancy, I don’t know how to read! He didn't lose his cool. He simply nodded and said, 'Alright, just report to me in the morning, and we’ll get you started.' Oh, and he warned me never to speak to the Mage unless spoken to, which suited me fine."
Ros took another drink of his beer, wiped his mouth with the back of his hand, and continued. "I was hoping for five gee a day. I’d probably have done it for a lone gluck, to be honest. So imagine my shock when he apologised that he could only offer me twenty glucks a day!"
"Where were you living, that five would've been enough?" Rikad asked, curious.
Ros, slightly flushed from the beer, leaned forward. "Under a bloody hedge!" He burst into laughter at his own expense.
"That's rough man," Rikad commented, shaking his head.
Ros nodded. "It was, but it's behind me now. After a month or so of running errands, the Chief finally let me join the crew he was training. That's how I ended up a part of the elite guard of a learned lord mage."
Rikad, his face ruddy, pointed his finger at Ros’s chest. "It’s your attitude! You always train the hardest. It’s changed the whole team's tone."
Ros nodded again, serious. "I gotta! The fifteen hundred gee I make every month now is probably more than I did in the last decade. Total! I bet we make as much as a knight commander does leading a thousand soldiers!"
Rikad looked at him suspiciously. "Wait, a decade? Aren't you still a teenager?"
Ros shrugged. "It's been a long, hard time. Anyway, I know I promised to go to see that folk band with you tonight, but I'm spent. I think I might call it an early night." He finished the beer in two long gulps and stood up.
"I get it. Besides, tomorrow's Sunday. We can finally sleep in!" Rikad pointed out.
Ros woke to a frantic pounding on his bedroom door. It was still dark out.
“Go away! Keep it down! You’ll wake the whole house!” Ros grumbled, mostly asleep.
“Come on man! Emergency meeting at the training yard. We gotta go now!” Rikad hoarsely whispered.
“Ah, that’s not good!” Ros threw on some clothes and headed out the door with his friend.
“Think it has something to do with what Kedril and Jourgun were doing after work?” Ros asked.
“Maybe? That was hours and hours ago, and those guys are great, and they were with the Chief,” Rikad countered.
They jogged through the mostly empty streets. The moons were behind clouds, and the dew made the cobblestones slick. The faint flickering of their leviathan oil lamp cast strange shadows in the foggy night. The city felt on edge, too many people on the streets in the middle of the night, whispering. A few times Ros thought he heard something about thunder and demons, which did nothing to calm his growing panic.
“What if something happened to Mage Thippily? Are we all unemployed now?” Ros asked, knowing Rikad knew as much as he did.
“What is the business we guard? Something to do with magically formed super secret goods that no one was allowed to talk about. I think? I should have asked,” Rikad lamented.
Finally they made it to the yard, and Kedril was standing at the gate, torch held aloft.
“Good lads! Go into the workshop and take a seat. The Chief has some tea on.” Kedril’s voice was as calm and steady as ever, but his face was pale and drawn, and his eyes never focused on them, just scanned the night intently.
“Inside? Are you sure?” Ros had never gone inside; that was the single biggest rule.
Kedril just nodded. Ros and Rikad looked at each other for courage and moved forward. The big yard door to the workshop opened a crack, and warm light was spilling out. Rikad motioned Ros to go first, and he poked his head in, fully expecting to lose it.
“Oy, is that Ros? Git your scrawny ass in here,” Chief Stanisk rumbled.
The two men felt like flies exploring a web, but inside was surprisingly normal. Five other guards were already there, and the room was a lot like any other workshop. It had planked floors, shelves and tables and one corner was even converted into a kitchen. There were a few simple stools set up, and two incredibly luxurious loungers. Like everyone else, Ros and Rikad took a stool. The Chief gestured to a kettle and mugs for the tea, but no one seemed interested.
“What’s happening, is everyone okay?” Ros finally asked.
“Short answer is yes, for now.” Stanisk said calmly. “We’ll give the other lads a few minutes to get here, then I’ll explain.”
“Holy light, sir! You aren’t wearing your armour!” This unsettled Ros more than anything he’d seen all night, it was like seeing a bear shaved. Chief was just sitting there in trousers and a shirt, sipping tea. He’d never seen the Chief without armour.
“Needs cleaned,” he answered cryptically.
Follow up questions were interrupted by the rest of the men arriving, followed by Kedril and then Jourgun, who must have been watching the far gate.
“Alright, gather round, at ease.” Stanisk started. He looked relaxed which was probably a good sign.
“You lot were hired to protect the interests of our operations. There was an attempt on Mage Thippliy’s life tonight, at his meeting. Security Specialists Kedril and Jourgun did excellent work, and I have full confidence in all of your growing abilities. Our concern is there will be additional attempts."
There was a murmur of apprehension. The mage was the company. Without him there was nothing to guard. No one here wanted to lose their jobs, but they had been suspicious from the start. The pay didn’t match the work.
Stanisk paused as Mage Thipply and the elv, that had only been speculated to exist, came down the ladder from the loft. The mage was dressed like normal, in his brown pants and a white shirt, frameless glasses and a short well maintained beard streaked with grey. The elv was wearing an oversized sweater and long stockings. It had the effect of making her upper body look human, but with the long spindly legs of a shore bird. Her huge nocturnal eyes stared at them all unblinkingly, and her long narrow fingers with too many segments wrapped around a mug of tea. Ros was both intimidated and repulsed. It was like a bird or an insect pretending to be a person, but with eyes that had intelligence and cruelty.
“Ah! Um, thank you all for coming!” The mage was directly addressing them, Ros grinned despite his fears and worries. “There have been events over the last week or so that have culminated tonight, and I no longer think that our operation in Jagged Cove is viable.” The mage saw the reaction of the crowd turn sharply negative. He hastily added, “Of course I’m not closing up shop, we’re just moving to another location. A location outside of the capital region, and I’d like you all to join us.”
Ros sighed and leaned back in relief. This wasn’t bad news at all. He’d gladly move to the bottom of the sea for the Mage. He could feel his pulse returning to normal, as other people started asking questions.
“What? I can’t leave the city, I got a wife and kids!” a guard named Theros said.
“Oh, I just started dating a baker's apprentice, is there an option to stay?” Jourgun asked.
The elv stood up, and addressed the room with an icy indifference. “This is not a negotiation. There is a ship that is leaving in about six hours. If you are on it, you will remain employed. We have also made considerations for your families. They are welcome on the ship, and you can find new homes in the town we relocate to.” She subtly nodded to the Chief before continuing. “Chief Stanisk values your skills so highly that he convinced the board of directors to offer each of you a five year contract. The contract will have some additional employment conditions, but there will be a 5000 glindi signing bonus. Follow Chief Stanisk’s instructions to get on the boat, and we’ll see you there. Or not.”
She returned to the ornate chair, and the room erupted into chaos.
“Holy light! That’s so much!”
“I’d be insane not to sign!”
“Where are we even going?”
Ros grinned from ear to ear, what’s to decide? This was the best possible outcome! Free money to see the world! Packing his bags would take no time, and he could carry everything that mattered in one trip.
Stanisk took command of the room, “You with young ‘uns, we got the company wagons for you waiting, get a move on. I’ll take the mage’s personal wagon and do a loop to Kedril’s, Eowin’s and Klive’s. The rest of you, leg it! Meet back here in three hours and tell anyone what asks, that you took a job out of the city. Be vague! Come on, pick up the pace you helpless kittens!"

2023.06.08 20:41 Ma2ii I lied about something dumb.

I(19f) recently got into a long distance relationship with my current bf(39m). We were having rough patches at the beginning of the relationship, but we worked them out. It was going well, until this morning. He was playing his game with some friends and I sat up waiting for him so we can talk. He finally finished at 2am. We were texting at first, then we started talking. We weren’t saying much as I just got off of work also and was a bit tired, but slowly we started talking.
I was laying in bed on my phone. I was watching tiktoks, but then I saw I had unanswered messages. I left this person on seen for days. So I started to text them. He heard the keyboard sound. He asked was I texting. I said yes. Next he asked, who was I texting. I choked up here, because like I said earlier we had rough patches. He would usually leave and block me. Not telling me what I did. So I lied. I told him I was texting him. In reality I was texting someone else. It was nothing romantic or flirty. It was about a game.
After that he started to get silent. I can tell he was there because it was noise. I asked a couple questions like, “what’s wrong?” and “do u want to play a game with me?” He answered the question about the game. We are trying to work on communication, so I also said, “remember you said that you would talk to me when things bother you.” Then he hung up. I been ignored all day today. I still didn’t tell him that I was texting someone else.
I am here asking for help? Because I don’t know if I should let him be right now or try and fix it. All this is new to me. I really love him though and would do anything to make it right. I don’t want to lose him😔
Sorry if it’s all over the place.

2023.06.08 20:39 Raetian Proficiency Class Pack - Let's Talk About Builds #6: the Tech Specialist, my beloved, my precious

We return today to the PCP for the latest entry in our series of build discussions: this time, we’re talking about the Tech Specialist! This is the last post in our initial six-part series discussing the Proficiency Class Pack, but not the end of the project. Next, I plan to move alphabetically through the redesigned Proficiency Hero classes, and then perhaps on to some plugin class options from other mod authors. First on the docket will be the Reaper. But for now, back on topic!
At Squaddie rank, all Tech Specialists (hereafter TechSpec) receive the following perks:
Protocol Packages (PROFICIENCY) - Soldier gains the “ABC” Protocol ability suite: Aid Protocol (deploys a small smoke cloud on the targeted ally), Blinding Protocol (deploys a miniaturized flashbang at the targeted enemy), and Combat Protocol (deals a guaranteed 2 damage to the targeted enemy, dealing double damage to robotic targets). The ABC Protocols work on a system of initial charges, usable upfront in a mission with a 1-turn cooldown, and a subsequent recharge time after which a Protocol may be used again. Note that the 1-turn cooldown is shared by all ABC Protocols, so only one can be used per turn, even if the TechSpec gains an extra action after using it.
At Proficiency level 1, the ABC Protocols are each turn-ending and have 1 initial charge and a recharge time of 5 turns. At level 2, the TechSpec additionally gains the Haywire Protocol (hack a robotic enemy to shut them down or seize control for 3 turns) and Repair Protocol (heal a mechanical ally for 3/5/7 HP depending on GREMLIN tech tier) abilities, and all GREMLIN protocols are no longer turn-ending; at level 3, ABC Protocols gain +1 initial charge (for a total of 2), and their recharge time is reduced by 1 turn (down to 4 from 5).
Hack - Soldier may remotely hack into ADVENT network access points, as with the basegame Specialist.
Failsafe - As an action, soldier may nullify any negative consequences of a failed hack which they would afterward have triggered this turn. Failsafe also grants a temporary +15 bonus to the soldier’s hack stat until the start of their next turn.
Rank Perk 1 Perk 2 Perk 3
CPL Adaptive Alloy Plating: Soldier gains +1 point of regenerating standard armor. This armor will only regenerate after all other sources of armor have been removed, and activates at the start of the XCOM turn. Low Profile: Partial cover gives as much defense as full cover for this soldier. Note that Low Profile does NOT make low cover count as full cover for the purpose of activating other abilities (such as Entrenched). Electronic Surveillance: Soldier gains +1 free battle scanner charge and +1 bonus charge to equipped battle scanners.
SGT Overload: Soldier’s Combat Protocol ability now deals +200% damage to robotic enemies, up from +100%, and +1 additional base damage to organic targets. Combat Protocol’s recharge time is increased by 2 turns (up to 7). Extended Signal Range: Soldier’s GREMLIN protocols and equipped Sniper Rifles may now be used at squadsight ranges. Note that objectives and terminal objects cannot be hacked from squadsight. Silent Motors: Soldier remains concealed when the squad breaks concealment, and ABC Protocols do not break their individual concealment. Soldier’s detection radius is reduced by -20%, but this radius increases cumulatively by +20% for each ABC Protocol activated. All such penalties are reset at mission’s end or if the soldier loses concealment, meaning if they regain concealment they start over with no penalty.
LT Disruption Field: Free action. Soldier may activate this field to gain +15% defense and guarantee any reaction shots against them while the field is active will miss until the beginning of the next XCOM turn. Breaks squad and individual concealment. 3-turn cooldown. Neutralizing Agents: Soldier’s Aid Protocol ability gains +1 tile radius and now cleanses all allies in the initial AOE of any active Acid, Burning, or Poison effects. These allies are also granted 1 turn of immunity to these effects, such that they can move to safety without re-inflicting the effect on themselves. EMP Shockwave: Soldier’s Combat Protocol ability now completely strips any active shields from any mechanical or organic target. Against mechanical targets only, it now also reduces hack defense by -15 and has a 20% chance to inflict a 1-turn shutdown.
CPT Anti-Armor Doctrine: Soldier gains the Shredder perk, shredding 1/2/3 points of armor with their primary weapon depending on weapon tier, and an additional +30% chance to crit against mechanical targets. Targeting Uplink: Soldier may use an action to grant a mechanical ally squadsight, negate 50% of all their range penalties to aim, and boost their crit chance by +10% per GREMLIN tier for one turn. This action is turn-ending, and may also be used on hacked enemies which are temporarily under XCOM control. 1-turn cooldown. Electronic Warfare: Soldier gains a permanent stat bonus of +10 hacking. In addition, the first activation of Failsafe within a mission is now a free action, and mechanical enemies lose one action on the turn they recover from a shutdown or controlling hack.
MAJ Marauder: Soldier’s standard shots are no longer turn-ending. Note that equipped Sniper Rifles derive almost no practical benefit from this perk, as they still cost two actions to fire. Restorative Repair: Soldier gains +1 additional charge of Repair Protocol. In addition, Repair Protocol now restores +1 point of shredded armor and extends the control effect on a hacked mechanical target by an extra turn. Psionic Feedback: Soldier’s Blinding Protocol ability now has a 10% base chance to panic affected targets. Basic ADVENT units gain +10% additional chance to panic; psionic enemies gain +20% chance. Based on GREMLIN tech level, this chance is further multiplied by 1/2/2.5, but the final chance is cut in half against unactivated enemies.
COL Miniaturized Munitions: Soldier gains the ability to equip a Heavy Weapon, regardless of armor worn. Equipped Heavy Weapons gain +1 bonus charge, but deal only 70% damage. Advanced Robotics: Soldier’s ABC Protocols gain +1 initial charge (for a total of 3) and recharge 1 turn faster. The shared 1-turn cooldown on ABC Protocols is removed, allowing two protocols to be activated per turn, though each individual protocol is still limited to once per turn. Full Override: Soldier gains a new GREMLIN protocol with 1 charge that shares a 3-turn cooldown with Haywire Protocol. If a mechanical enemy is successfully hacked by this new protocol, it may either come permanently under XCOM control for the remainder of the mission or simply self-destruct. Note that if the override fails, the charge is not deducted - but the cooldown is still triggered.
  1. Obviously, what perks do you select, and what perks, if any, do you prioritize picking up in the Training Center later to augment the build?
  2. What gear do you equip this soldier with?
  3. What squad size do you play with, and what role or synergy does this soldier occupy within that squad?
  4. If using Not Created Equal or something similar, what rookie stats do you look for in an ideal candidate?
  5. Are there any additional mods you use that influence the way you build and/or play with this soldier?

2023.06.08 20:39 lildancer4444 Registration Question from a New Transfer Student

So I am transferring from Chaffey College. I am sending over my final posted grades from my Spring semester to CSUF today. I got an email saying that registration starts tomorrow. I’m going over my audit results on my portal and it obviously shows that I haven’t completed some GE yet but it’s because I need to still send my final grades from Chaffey. I don’t have orientation until next Friday the 16th. I read on here that we will get our classes at orientation but I’m worried that if I don’t register tomorrow I won’t get the classes/schedule I want. I need to be full time but I can only take morning classes because I work from 3pm-11pm Sun-Thurs so I picked out classes that fit in that schedule. I’m kind of lost….. do I register tomorrow or wait until orientation ??? Help!! 😭
