1- I don't understand why people hate Coil so much. Only because of Dinah?
2- I don't understand why people make Coil such idiotic person. Really. Okay, you hate him, but he doesn't kidnap every parahuman in town. He prefers to use a carrot rather than a stick. He is rational person. He is fucking smart guy. Please, stop making Coil not Coil.
It wouldn't be so annoying, but if it happens in every fic, it will.
So, I recently got a new laptop and it has audible coil whine. After I noticed that, I also noticed a noise that sounds quite similar to the whine in my guitar signal when using hi gain tones.
In your experience - does coil whine could get picked by guitar pick ups?
And if so, what could you do to mitigate that?
EDIT: Here's the noise, first half tru a hi gain amp, with no noise gate, second half when I move guitar closer to the computer:
This is clean signal, input gain cranked, no vst's, no processing whatsoever, it starts with guitar 2 meters away from the computer and the swell is pickup picking up the noise from my computer as I move it closer to it:
EDIT 2: So it's clear that guitar picks up some sort of noise from the computer, I still think it is the coil whine, but it of course maybe something else.
The 'shh' noise still wasn't there before, so I will have to deal with that.
So the best advice so far:
I don't really know if I want to deal with this in software (Izotope De-noiser) as it is quite heavy on computer resources and I don't need another plugin in the chain, haha
For discussion and solutions to coil whine and other noise problems.
They both operate under the idea of two realities existing, and experiencing the more favorable of the two realities. I know there are a lot of differences. For example, both of Coil’s realities can end with a negative outcome, and the realities he creates are precognitive simulations (at least as far as we know), but there are still a lot of parallels between his power and quantum suicide, especially when Dinah gets involved. Did Wildbow ever comment on whether or not the similarities are intentional?
Edit: For those unfamiliar, immortality via quantum suicide is where a person is put next to something that is lethal when triggered (bomb, poison, etc.) that has a 50-50 chance whether or not it goes off every interval (any given amount of time). Every time this interval occurs, reality “branches” into one reality where the person dies, and one where they survive. So as long as the experiment continues, there is one reality where the person is still alive, effectively making them immortal.
This "President Elect Joe M" is a big Q pusher and has a lot of followers. It's interesting watching him put out post after post claiming Trump can somehow steal the election with floods of hopefuls replying. As each claim proves false Joe keeps "red pilling" them with the next date when something will happen. Trump's base on Parler are basically in the same space as HRC's base was after the election in 2016. There were the hopes on the Electoral College somehow not installing Trump, the calls for recounts, talk of secession. The main difference is that Trump's base have been brainwashed to believe the election was stolen with massive non-existent fraud and they're ready to take up arms against anyone they perceive to be part of that fraud. They are being groomed for domestic terrorism. This post insinuates that there's nothing to worry about though.. Trump will be installed as king basically and his base will be free take violent vengeance against everyone they fear and hate. There are far too many comments about taking up arms regardless of whether their man child king takes the throne. This account is worth keeping an eye on.
