Why are we trading sideways? Why is the borrow rate so low? When will we moon? The Theory of EVERYTHING GME

EDIT May 12, 2021: SR-OCC-2021-004 Is Scheduled to Finalize This Week ^(Also, I have been banned from Superstonk...)

Over the last few weeks, there have been some anomalies which have been bugging all of us.

  1. We've been trading sideways for a while now within a narrow range
  2. The borrow rate on such a volatile stock is ridiculously low
  3. The volume has seemingly dried up
  4. Yet it does not appear that shorts have covered
  5. SEC seems to be sitting idle on their hands
  6. WE see the deep ITM calls and FTDs, so DTC and OCC MUST also see these since their systems are clearing these trades

I think the answer is actually really simple: there is no single Long Whale.

DTC, OCC, and SEC are collectively the Long Whale bending the rules to keep the price stable...for now.

On JAN28, they saw what happened and saw the systemic risk that GME shorts would pose so they allowed RH and Citadel to bend the rules. Otherwise, it would have impacted all DTC and OCC members.

In response, DTC issues SR-DTC-2021-004 and OCC issues SR-OCC-2021-003 and SR-OCC-2021-004 which firewall members from defaulting members and allow orderly liquidation of defaulting members.

(If you want more insight into SR-DTC-2021-004, SR-DTC-2021-005, SR-OCC-2021-801, and SR-OCC-2021-004, see my post here).

Why We're Trading Sideways

In astrophysics, there are points in space known as Lagrange Points which provide orbital stability in multi-body systems.

Contrary to the popular notion that Citadel is using a short ladder to stabilize the price, I believe that DTC and OCC members who are not exposed to GME short positions are working together to stabilize the price within a narrow, neutral range. The reason is not because of "max pain", the reason is to wait for the firewalls (see the link above) to be in place. In other words, all parties are trying to keep GME (and perhaps other shorts) in "monetary Lagrange Points".

Price volatility can easily cause this to launch before DTC and OCC members are ready. They know that retail is largely tapped out (obvious by lack of volume) unless sudden volatility draws in more retail buyers that will move the price faster than they can control.

So who is stabilizing the price? The no

Best SEO Strategy: I asked 200, 82 replied, 36 unique responses.

Visit my site for more

Off-page SEO strategy

- Get press backlinks

The best SEO strategy is to focus on getting more authoritative backlinks. HARO is one practical means to that. This allows me to get valuable media coverage from high-traffic websites that are great for branding. Aside from being free, the audiences I get are organic. And organic audiences tend to become more loyal customers. – Marcus Clarke from Searchant.co, Ashish Goswami from 21Twelve Interactive, Neal Taparia from Spider Solitaire Challenge

- Write round-up articles

You should at least have an idea about what your audience would want to read. What’s next is to do serve it to your audience. Do your research and round up amazing resources from around the web and include them in a well-written, good-looking blog article.

Alternatively, you can round up experts (like this) and create a super epic article including insight from experts (everyone loves that). – Inspired by Sam Shepler from Testimonial Hero

This will not only allow your audience to read what they want but you can also do email outreach to those you linked and ask for a social share or a link back. – Inspired by Saurabh Jindal from Talk Travel

- Perform offsite blogging (commonly known as guest post)

A technique that is widely avoided and known to have a negative impact. But not for me. Writing guest posts for third-party websites has been very successful in driving traffic to my site. It’s a simple barter – quality content for a quality link. I simply write a piece of article that is relevant to their audience and include a link back to my website. That way, whatever traffic that comes to them is also driven to my page. What I love the most is it not only boosts my website’s ranking but it works as a free ad driving traffic from other sites. – Israel Gaudette from LinkTracker Pro, Catherine Way from Prime Plus Mortgages, Forrest McCall from Don’t Work Another Day, Malte Scholz from Airfocus

- Reach out to relevant bloggers

To build links, you have to do some serious outreach work. Find blogs that have written articles in a similar area, and email them to suggest that they link to your incredibly relevant article. For businesses in competitive industries, link building is a must if you want to outrank your competitors. – Andy Cabasso at Postaga

- Create quality content and outreach (aka skyscraping)

Instead of contacting every site on the web to ask for a guest post, we identify the

75 Mundane Ideas to Make Your V:TM Game More Grounded

http://unitedfederationofcharles.blogspot.com/2021/04/50-mundane-details-for-vampire.html

I'm a huge fan of Vampire: The Masquerade as anyone who knows me can attest. However, minor details are often overlooked in the spirit of getting to the juicy bits of gaming. In my twenty-five years of gaming, I've created a bunch of little details that helps me make my worlds seem a little more grounded. Please feel free to suggest your own as I love these sorts of additions.

75 Mundane Details for Vampire: The Masquerade Chronicles

  1. Vampires tend to set their temperatures upward of 75 degrees in their household for comfort.

  2. Many vampires really like tropical humid and hot environments.

  3. Vampires love hot baths and showers. They often enjoy them for sexy feedings.

  4. Vampires who can afford it enjoy hot tubs and sun tanning booths. The later don't actually affect Kindred but they are vaguely enjoyable.

  5. Vampires often wear sunglasses at night, not just as a fashion statement but because they have to deliberately blink.

  6. Generally, vampires lose about 10 to 20 pounds post Embrace due to organ atrophy.

  7. Yes, Embracing is nasty ugly business with expelling undigested food. Anne Rice oddly mentioned this but most other media doesn't.

  8. Vampire mouths are the one warm part of their bodies as they produce saliva and other things necessary for working elements.

  9. This means blood popsicles are things they can and do enjoy.

  10. Even with the blush of life, food tastes terrible.

  11. Vampires can digest food with blood but they will expell the former eventually.

  12. If you have the Blush of Life and are a male, that is actually a way possible to ghoul someone. Technically, women as well. Yes, you know what I mean.

  13. The most common ways to ghoul someone are sex, Dominating them into drinking your blood, or outright explaining the process.

  14. If someone hated you before Blood Bonding them and they know, they can usually resist and it is a good way to make a Hunter or someone utterly insane.

  15. Whenever a vampire dies, the Prince of the City has a process for dealing with their ghouls. They're either sold, traded, or more often killed. This is known as the Funeral Clean-Up.

  16. Like What We Do in the Shadows, most vampires never Embrace their ghouls outside of the Giovanni, Ministry, and Tremere. This is due to familiarity breeding contempt. There is no correlation between this and the exception clans' reputations for psychotic evil.

Pi-hole FTL v5.7 and Web v5.4 released

Today, we release Pi-hole FTL v5.7 and Web v5.4. This release improves the security and reliability of your Pi-hole. The most important enhancements are summarized below:

Fix security flaws on the web interface

Thanks to Veno Eivazian who pointed us to three security flaws in the web interface. They could have been used to run JavaScript code in the user browser and to "steal" the login session. The latter shouldn't cause any headaches for you as one should never run a Pi-hole open to the web. However, a possible malicious client inside your home network could have exploited them.

We have mitigated the three raised security issues by regenerating session ID on successful login (to prevent session fixation), by restricting PHP sessions to be cookie-only, by restricting the session cookie to be kept secret from possible malicious JavaScript code, and by encoding a message after failed cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) checking.

Inbuilt enhanced Denial-of-Service (DoS) protection

A DoS attack is a type of cyber attack in which a malicious actor attempts to make a service inaccessible to its intended users by disrupting the normal function of the device. DoS attacks typically work by overwhelming (flooding) a target with requests until normal traffic can no longer be processed. For other users, it then results in a denial of service. When facing the Internet, services have to be hardened against malicious attacks such as Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks. Defensive responses to denial-of-service attacks typically involve special DoS protection systems but can also involve routers (Access control list (ACL) capabilities) and firewall rules (rate-limiting).However, inside your local home network, you typically don't set up proper countermeasures. This is perfectly fine as they are typically not needed. Nevertheless, we see quite often that "the Internet was taken down" (DNS resolution went unavailable) when a rogue client starting to hammer a blocked domain thousands of time every second, or, when an (accidentally) created DNS loop exists, e.g., between the router and your Pi-hole.

It is an interesting question how this should be solved and the simplest approach seems to be firewalling them away. However, we thought that this is not the best way to handle this because

My Thoughts On the SysOps Administrator Associate BETA Exam - (SOA-C02)

https://preview.redd.it/78hqqvsbkrh61.png?width=960&format=png&auto=webp&s=70ffb5267c43aea4252f0879bec299ab6c027a68

Today I sat the brand new AWS SysOps Administrator Associate exam (SOA-C02). I think I had the first time slot available in the world - 10am on Tuesday morning (Australia Time). I'm creating a brand new course which is specifically designed to pass this exam at https://learn.cantrill.io so I wanted to do a little recon and make sure that the topics I'm covering are aligned with the exam.

You can find my detailed thoughts below, but at a high level

  • It's a great exam
  • It has some good labs, which test real skills, it's going to be harder to fake pass from now on
  • The presentation of labs needs real work, I had functional problems which I've detailed below

(Full disclosure, I create AWS courses at https://learn.cantrill.io which are focussed on teaching real in-depth theory and practical skills, rather than solely concentrating on exams)

My course based on what I saw is spot on, there are a few topics I might add for completion, but otherwise I think students are going to be running a 100% pass rate with it as is. I think anyone can take and pass this exam with what's in my course right now.

Also posted to https://cantrill.io/2021/02/16/my-thoughts-on-the-sysops-beta-exam-soa-c02.html

Testing Vendor Experience

I sat the exam with Pearson Vue, and it was set to start at 10am with a check-in time of 9.30am. I'd already ran the system checks a few days before, and was sitting the exam on a Macbook Pro (Intel), in a small separate room I had cleared especially.

I first had to checkin and perform the system check again. Initially it failed because it couldn't 'hear' any sound from my internal microphone. It felt a bit silly saying test test 1 2 3 4 while the check was running ....but nobody will ever know how stupid I sounded.

Next I had to use my mobile phone to scan my ID. Logically, I'd switched my phone off and put it out of arms reach, so after a minute or so I was good to go, IDs and things scanned.

Then, i had to take four pictures :-

Top GDPR Solutions for Security and Consent Management

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a set of provisions and requirements governing data protection and privacy for individuals across the European Union. It applies to any business or public body — inside or outside the EU — that handles the personal data of EU residents. Such data includes but is not limited to:

  • Basic identity information
  • Financial data
  • Web data
  • Biometric and genetic data
  • Political opinions
  • Trade union membership
  • Ethnic origin

Essentially, GDPR requirements govern the way companies process and store personally identifiable information (PII). Businesses are encouraged to implement data protection “by design” and “by default” — they should design their operations to safeguard user data and privacy from the very start.

The regulation came into force in May 2018, and violations can result in steep fines and other penalties. While meeting GDPR requirements is critical for any organization that stores or processes the data of EU residents, there is no one-size-fits-all solution for maintaining GDPR compliance. Companies need to implement data privacy tools and processes suited to their unique needs, infrastructure and services.

Core Capabilities for GDPR Compliance

GDPR provisions can be grouped into two main categories: individual privacy rights and data security. Be sure the GDPR solutions you implement will help you cover all core capabilities pertaining to both groups.

Individual Privacy Rights

GDPR provisions concerning individual privacy rights are:

  • Article 15: Right of access by the data subject
  • Article 16: Right to rectification
  • Article 17: Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)
  • Article 18: Right to restriction of processing
  • Article 20: Right to data portability
  • Article 21: Right to object
  • Article 22: Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

The primary technological capabilities required to address these requirements include:

Consent Management

Consent management is the process of ensuring that online services and websites obtain user consent for collecting data about them — via site cookies, for example — during their visit.

GDPR requirements allow organizations to collect and process a customer’s data only if that individual has acti

Filtering posts from usernames suggested on signup

I noticed that a lot of the lowest quality content in my subreddits often comes from users who select a suggested username on account creation. You know, that name format that's often "Adjective-Noun_Number", always with the first letter of each word capitalized, and optionally dashes or underscores between each element. This may or may not be the case for you, but when someone is looking for a quick throwaway account, they'll often use a username suggested by Reddit.

To account for this, I put together an AutoModerator rule that will filter posts from these users, here:

"Too many redirects" with Traefik Forward Auth

I've set up Traefik with Google OAuth following this guide. I've followed all the steps and I'm getting so far that the Google sign in form is showing for the containers that I add the OAuth middleware to. But as soon as I select an e-mail address in the list to log in with (it could be a whitelisted and non-whitelisted), I get "Too many redirects" when the browser reaches oauth.mydomain.com/_oauth.

I've only added the middleware to the Traefik container, so I'm visiting traefik.mydomain.com. I've set up my DNS on Cloudflare with a CNAME pointing to oauth.mydomain.com with the target set to "@" or "mydomain.com". I've also waited several hours since doing these settings as it can take a while for the settings to be set.

Here are the sections in my docker-compose.yml that has to do with Traefik Forward Auth:

# Google OAuth - Single Sign On using OAuth 2.0

      - INSECURE_COOKIE=false
      - AUTH_HOST=oauth.${DOMAINNAME}

      ## HTTP Routers
      - "traefik.http.routers.oauth-rtr.entrypoints=https"
      - "traefik.http.routers.oauth-rtr.rule=Host(`oauth.${DOMAINNAME}`)"

Fallout 76: Update 22 Patch Notes – September 15, 2020

We’re releasing Update 22 today, which includes new features like One Wasteland, Daily Ops, Legendary Perks, and the start of our second Fallout 76 Season. This update also brings a number of additional improvements and bug fixes to the game, so be sure to read on to catch the patch notes.


Update 22 Highlights

  • One Wasteland: Creature levels now adjust dynamically to more closely match character levels, so you can adventure anywhere in Appalachia, whether alone or with your friends!
  • Fallout 76 Season 2: Join Armor Ace and the Power Patrol in their battle against the Red Vipers by ranking up on an all-new S.C.O.R.E.board and claiming tons of rewards along the way.
  • Daily Ops: Gear up, grab your pals, and get ready to take on challenging, repeatable, and randomized encounters called Daily Ops.
  • Legendary Perks: Become legendary with new high-level Perk Cards that will offer more power and build diversity to your characters.

Update Version

Check below for the update version and download size for today’s patch on your platform of choice:

  • PC (Bethesda.net): 1.4.0.20 (23.3 GB)
  • PC (Microsoft Store): 1.4.0.20 (37.8 GB)
  • PC (Steam): 1.4.0.20 (27.5 GB)
  • PS4: 1.4.0.20 (35.2 GB)
  • Xbox: 1.4.0.20 (42.6 GB)

One Wasteland

  • With today’s update, we’re excited to introduce One Wasteland to Fallout 76, which allows creatures to dynamically adjust their levels up or down on the fly to more closely match each player they encounter.
  • If multiple players all come across the same enemy at the same time, its level will simultaneously rise for the higher-level players and drop for the lower-level players.
  • In addition to their levels, each creature’s damage, health, and resistances, as well as the loot they drop and the XP they award, will also better match each player.
  • This means that all players who are adventuring together can have an impact on any given combat encounter, even if there is a large level gap between them.
  • While creatures will still have minimum and maximum levels, such as a max of level 50 in The Forest, they are now much more flexible overall.
  • One Wasteland opens up more opportunities to adventure anywhere in Appalachia, whether alone or with your friends. It also smooths out some of the early game bumps for new players, allows higher-level players to get max-level loot in previously lower-level regions, and should offer more consistent combat encounters for everyon

WinHttpRequest Wrapper

I'll keep this as short as possible. This comes up because a user yesterday wanted a specific voice out of text-to-speech, but he wanted one from a web version and not the included in the OS (ie, there was the need to scrape the page). So...

WinHttpRequest Wrapper

There's no standardized method to make HTTP requests, basically we have:

  • XMLHTTP.
  • WinHttpRequest.
  • UrlDownloadToFile.

UrlDownloadToFile is super-limited and, unless you know you need to use it, XMLHTTP should be avoided. That leaves us with WinHttpRequest for which I didn't find a nice wrapper around the object (years ago, maybe now there is) and most importantly no binary encoding support for multipart when dealing with uploads or big PATCH/POST/PUT requests. So, here's my take.

It will help with services and even for scrapping (don't be Chads, use the APIs if exist). The main highlights:

  • Automatic cookie handling.
  • Ignores SSL errors by default.
  • It has some static methods for convenience.
  • Returns only the request response (or an object with status, headers and response).
  • The MIME handling (when uploading) is controlled by the MIME subclass, extend it if needed (I've never used anything other than is there but YMMV).
  • The MIME boundary is 40 chars long making it compatible with cURL, if you use the appropriate UA length, the request will be the same size as one sent by cURL (helps with debugging).

Public static methods

Equivalent to JS:

.encodeURI(uri[, encoding := "UTF-8"])

.encodeURIComponent(uri[, encoding := "UTF-8"])

.decodeURI(uri[, encoding := "UTF-8"])

.decodeURIComponent(uri[, encoding := "UTF-8"])

AHK key/pair object to URL query (key1=val1&key2=val2):

.objToQuery(obj)

Calling the object

As singleton (the closest to it in AHK):

http := WinHttpRequest(options)

As class instance:

http := new WinHttpRequest(options)

Options:

options           := {}
options.cookies   := true    ;                = Default. Automatic Cookie handling.
                             ; false          = Junk cookies each request.
options.proxy     := false   ;                = Default. Use system settings.
                             ; "DIRECT"       = Direct connection.
                             ; "proxy[:port]" = Custom defined proxy, same rules as system proxy.

[Tales From the Terran Republic] The Republic Done Goofed, Part One.

The road to terminally pissing off THE WRONG PERSON is paved with good intentions.

This one ran over 40,000 characters so I had to split it.

The rest of this series can be found here

***

Doctor Henry Chapman was sitting at his desk deep in the Republic Advanced Research Program Agency’s Northern Complex going over the latest scans from the debacle that just took place in Barnard’s Star.

Ten of their “babies”, the Fairbairn Stilettos, gutted in seconds. There was no salvaging them. They were all bound for the scrap heap.

It wasn’t even a fight. That goddamn Samuels person slaughtered them. No, that wasn’t accurate. She could have slaughtered them but instead did just enough damage to completely wreck them without a single death.

Oh, more than a few people were in med pods and a few of them will have their military careers come to an end as a result of what could only be described as “extensive” injuries but nobody was killed.

And what’s worse, the ship that was now known as “Gloria’s Reaper” escaped. God, he wanted that ship! He had absolutely no interest in the “coup”, any of them. He had only one thing that drove him. The acquisition of knowledge, more specifically knowledge that would further the Republic’s capacity for self preservation.

He pushed his old-style glasses up, a very useful affectation. They constantly displayed augmented reality screens fed by any of several supercomputers and from a very advanced scanner built directly into the frame.

He felt “blind” without them.

His drive was borderline insane but so was the situation in which the Republic found itself. He knew a very ugly little fact that most in the Republic did not. Technologically speaking, both the Republic and the Empire weren’t just a little behind the bug.

They were so far behind it wasn’t even funny.

They only “won” if you could call it that, by the “strength of spirit” of their combatants who threw themselves and their ships into a suicidal headlong fight against what should have wiped them out.

The numbers didn’t lie. Based on firepower and technology, we should have lost.

The bugs should be converting Terra into another hive-world at this very moment.

And humanity?

What was left of it should be huddling on whatever ships they could grab or packed nut to butt into the Grand Shipyard, hoping and praying that the bug didn’t find that too.

Yes, the Terran people (and

Minecraft Earth - The Full Update History

Just now, I published a piece of rProject1 content which taken me longer than any other rProject1, or even RealAlenMC post... ever. Yeah.

So, sit back, enjoy, and here it is.

"Yup. This is my second time writing this, because the first attempt wasn't saved.

Now, let's begin.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Note: If you want to add/change something about this post, please comment, and if you're correct, and what you asked makes sense, I will add/change it.

NOTE - All credit belongs to the Minecraft Wiki on Fandom.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Announced

Mojang Studios and Microsoft first revealed their marvellous creation in May of 2019. (Wow, has it really been that long ago?)

Basic Concept

Here's a basic concept, alongside the main things in the game, before we move on to the update history.

Minecraft Earth uses VR for almost all android devices, and iPhones 6 S and above.

You view the Minecraft world from high above - however, moving the device you're using can allow you to get closer. When in Minecraft Earth, similar to pocket edition, there is next to no reach limits, and you can place and break blocks wherever you tap. Also, the game is linked to Bedrock Edition.

In Minecraft Earth, there are 'tappables', which you, well, tap. When tapped, they get you infinite blocks, items, and, as weird as it sounds, mobs.

In Minecraft Earth, you have a hotbar, with blocks, and such. There are also 2 buttons which can reveal challenges and your inventory.

Challenges, when completed, can earn rubies. Rubies can be spent in the story, or in buildplates. Buildplates are small VR, non-existent, but on-the-screen platforms of blocks. Think of it as porting tiny Minecraft worlds into Real Life.

Also, while not required, you can buy a Minecraft Earth table to 'place' using VR your creations. It's not required, though.

You can also get daily challenges, to get even more rubies.

While you are technically in creative mode, because you can fly, and don't have any hunger or health bar, you're also in survival, because you can mine blocks, and gather resources, and an XP bar which you get XP into w

[Thank you]

First of all, thank you all for your cards !Btw i don't have enough frames atm, but that's how it will be! :D

EDIT : I'm just realizing that i didn't put a title.

From the top left corner to the top right corner

u/authspice : The New York Card Thanks a lot for the card, i love it, even if you mentionned the "this rather generic touristy postcard" haha! Btw i've visited Brooklyn while visiting NYC, it was a nice place to hang out, even tho i probably missed almost everything there! haha And sadly i didn't visit chinatown nor Lower Eastside, but maybe one day if i go there again, i will !

u/onelittlericeball : Zurich Grossmünster Well i forgot i edited my last post to thank you there, and i had already cleaned the table, so a quick thanks here ;D

u/malaielle : Seattle First of all, i love your writing! Haha Also, what you described is kinda what we have here, cold and snowy winters, hot and dry summers, very nice places to hike, especially with the Switzerland near us, but it's definitely smaller than Seattle which fits my wishes perfectly, i hate big cities! Anyway, thanks for the postcard, that stained glass style is very nice!

From the bottom left corner to the bottom right corner

u/b4nkrupt : Las Vegas + the pack of photos Alright, again, what a perfect handwriting ! Do you always write like this or is it to please people on RAOC ? HahaALSO thanks a LOT for all these commented photos, it was definitely like having a guided tour!Your comments were very insightful, i definitely laughted at some of them (like the top of Stratosphere), or the touristy things to do there, i was "shocked" at some of them for the well known "overdoing it" thing in America, like the luxury hotel with big fancy chandeliers everywhere, the size of the football stadium (and its cost, damn!), the size of the Bellagio hotel (and what's inside it, it's like a mini city, but definitely a lot of interesting things! I've visited Venice in italy, the first thing i've noticed on the photo you sent about the Venetian Hotel is how clean everything is, in Venice it's definitely not the same ! haha), and those huge buildings everywhere. But that's pretty neat, my father visited Las Vegas a long time ago, i wish one day i will visit it too, just for the experience!Again, thanks a LOT for the photos and the postcard (with the cute cactus!) + the sticker!

I made a real-time file transfer webapp: free, secure with no size limit - exoo.io

TLDR: looking for feedback on exoo.io: real time file transfer webapp which is fully free, without size limit while respecting your online privacy

Hey guys,

So I tried to make the most out of this all pandemic free time thing and created a website as a side project that I hope some of you could find useful : exoo.io

I've just turned it live and would really appreciate if you could share some feedback.

It's a simple file transfer website that works both on your local network and across the internet on all your devices !

It's powered by webRTC (mainly used in videotelphony apps nowadays) so everything is encrypted and happening between browsers: files are never uploaded on any servers and the transfer is as fast as your network allows it to be!

It's been very useful to me and my friends for transferring files from mobile to laptops or in between PCs (and it's really fast on the same local networks).
It could also be a good alternative to existing file transfer services if you want to share large files or if you are just concerned about privacy and don't want to upload your files on third-party servers.

I'm all against intrusive annoying ads and a big online-privacy preacher so I made everything free, without ads or cookies whatsoever. In addition, it's all anonymous with no registration required.

Would love to hear some feedback from you guys as I've put a lot of hours into this side project and I really hope some of you could find it useful. 
I plan to implement new features in the near future and why not a mobile app so if you have any suggestion features, i'm down for it :)

Thank you for your time !

[Slight OT] Yoshi Presents: Edition #5 of the AOWR Rolex 24 at Daytona roundup and megathread!

Hope everyone doesn't mind this post being a bit later than it's been in previous years! I wanted to make sure Ganassi and Rahal Letterman Lanigan were properly accounted for before making the post, since they are owned by IndyCar owners. As always, this should be worth the wait! Mods have permission to sticky.

Welcome to the 2021 motorsports season. Sit back, relax, celebrate the turning points towards overcoming the COVID-19 pandemic, and strap on your tightest seat belts along with your fanciest watch. It's time to take comfort in knowing the Rolex 24 at Daytona should roll on as scheduled, and so many of the sport's greatest names will answer the call just as they would in any more normal season preceding this one.

Like the race we'll be celebrating at the end of January, /r/indycar is well assured in knowing that I'm up to the task of rounding up the North American open wheel contingency representing this legendary event. In addition to my usual criteria of drivers that have already made one race start in an IndyCar, CART, or ChampCar race, I am also acknowledging those that represented the official IndyCar iRacing exhibition series that was contested during the lockdown period, as well as an acknowledgement towards Jimmie Johnson's upcoming rookie season for 2021.

In 2020, Ryan Briscoe and Scott Dixon contributed to the overall and Daytona Prototype International (DPi) class wins for Wayne Taylor Racing, which also marked the team's second straight Rolex 24 victory and the beginning of one of Dixon's greatest calendar years. Ben Hanley and DragonSpeed also topped a podium; for them it was in the Le Mans Prototype 2 (LMP2) class. While the team is bowing out of Indy car racing in 2021, they will be back on the high banks to defend their crown. Neither of the GT classes contained an active open wheeler in their winning car, but Australian Supercars star Chaz Mostert would be among the many guest stars of the iRacing exhibitions and came out with a win for BMW in the GT Le Mans (GTLM) field. In addition to the always deep GT Daytona (GTD) class, this year will mark the Rolex 24 debut for the Le Mans Prototype 3 (LMP3) class, which in previous years ran support races in IMSA competition.

As always, the maximum entry list for teams is dictated by the cars entered for the Roar Before the 24 test sessions to be held this weekend. The 2021 running also sees a new twist in introducing a 100 minute partial points sprint race capping off the Roar (Janua

Planet Crete, Omicron Gamma, 2 days later

-Mr. Kell-

Amazing isn't it Cookie? Looks like the horde of drones can build up a fleet quickly. I also did not expect to see it here either. Most of the time they just leave a few cruisers if that at the planets and have fighters and destroyers patrol Sol. I guess with how quick progress is in building the fleet they could use some training in movement and stuff….

Wait, what is that? Thing looks like a ship from a TV show from the early 2000's. I guess that must be the new carrier then huh? What was it.....uhhhh the Liberty? Or was it called Jupiter? I cannot remember. I remember funding was passed for two of them. Was it Liberty or Jupiter to be the first carrier?"

"Looks like a carrier to me. I want to say they passed funding for the Liberty and its assortment of fighters. I guess it only takes a few months to build one. Shit, yea that is the Liberty. Thing is fucking huge! Must be what, 4 miles in length? I mean I guess it kind of has to be considering the power usage in making a wormhole for both itself and all the fighters it carries. Still though, that is fucking huge. Think they'll be doing wargames the next system over?"

I stepped back from the view porthole and went back to the couch in the shuttle. Sitting down on the leather sofa, I responded to Cookie.

"Probably the next system over bub. Last thing the new space force needs to do is accidentally send a torpedo into Crete. Sure, it is barely populated, I mean the first mega cities keel is barely laid, and sure the torpedo would be a training round. Buuut the last thing they would want is to send a 5Mt warhead onto a planet. Bad PR and all that. Anyway, touch down should be in about an hour. You check the local laws? Look here.”

I handed my tablet that was on the table in front of me to Cookie.

“They are treating this as just about the fucking wild-west. You cannot walk up and murder someone, but self-defense is allowed at any and all times, no retreat necessary. Anyone lays a paw on you in aggression, law allows full use of lethal force. I guess we can ke

Advent of Code Community Fun 2020: Gettin' Crafty With It

Last year y'all got real creative with poetry and we all loved it. This year we're gonna up our own ante and increase scope to anything you make yourself that is even tangentially related to Advent of Code. Any form of craft is valid as long as you make it yourself!

IDEAS

  • Something relating to the subreddit tags: Visualizations, Repo, Tutorial, Live, etc.
  • Play with your toys
  • AoC-related artisanship

HIstory of the SOl war: Lecture 8, Humans are vengeful

< Previous | First | Next >

The lecturer watched his class, more and more of them were using personal or custom data pads, A few even had physical writing equipment. He resisted the urge to show his joy. It wasn’t much but at least he could open a few eyes.

“I will start today’s lecture with a recording.” He said and pressed a small button on the lectern.

On the screen behind him a image of a federation base on earth appeared, showing federation troopers running about, the air shook with what at first seemed to be thunder. The noise continued on the echoing roar of what the class identified as continued, ongoing explosions, It was as if someone was launching an orbital strike. The base itself was about the same size as a small town. Clearly one of the main centers of operation.

“Commander, A message from fleet command. There are no Human ships in orbit.” The voice was clearly recorded from elsewhere.

“What do you mean? No ships in orbit, this is an orbital strike. There is nothing else it could be!” A somewhat stressed voice said, clearly the commander.

“The fleet command have double checked their scanners, no orbital disturbances, nothing that would indicate a satellite strike, or stealth vessel, even if the humans did have those.”

“Then what in the name of the council is it? Some kind of aircraft?” This was followed by the sounds of nervous shuffling.

“Our anti-air systems have reported nothing that could indicate an aircraft.” There was a pause, one far to long to be anything good.

“THEN WHAT. IN THE NAME OF THE FIRST BORN IS PUSHING OUR SHIELDS TO THEIR LIMIT!?” The commander exploded at whoever was reporting to him. “You know what? I don’t care, get out there, and find out how long this is going to last.”

“Yes sir.”

The recording cut.

“In the final years of the Sol war when the Federation fleet was forced to retreat from earth, at the same time humanity launched what appeared to be a desperate attack on our ground forces. What we were unaware of was just quite what we were facing. Humanity refused to allow us any chance to recover our groundside troops. They refused all contact whatsoever. Every attempt was met with silence, Or promises of making us

Dairy free chocolate chip cookies (non-vegan)

Quick intro: I'm not a vegan, but since 2-3 years old I don't eat dairy except milk - which I haven't bought for the last 10 years but before that I was making pancakes with it. Can't tell you why I hate so much dairy products. I have a terrible memory when I was 2 or 3 when I tried cheese for the first time and I'm immensely disgusted by it even now. It's a mental illness according to my therapist and it is "fixable", but I don't want to.

But there are a lot of people that are intolerant or allergic to milk and dairy at all (lactose, but not limited to). So in the last 10 years I haven't used dairy products while cooking and I thought that it would be an amazing idea to share one of my favorite dairy-free desserts and probably the most praised by people who've tried it - COOKIES!

Note: TLDR at the bottom!

....................

Ingredients (with some notes and thoughts that will help you experiment on your own)

160g oil (in my country we mainly use sunflower oil as it is $1-2 per liter, but peanut oil is similar and good substitute and the best substitute - even better than sunflower - is refined coconut oil, do not put natural coconut oil as it could ruin the cookies taste/smell even you love how coconut smells)

130g brown sugar

100g white sugar (Note: you could swap the brown quantity for white and vice versa if you want crispier and less chewy cookies)

1 large egg (even medium could work, or 2 small, in my experience 1 egg vs 2 eggs it doesn't matter - the end result is as good just slightly different - try both and see which one works best for you - for me 1 egg is enough)

2tsp liquid vanilla extract (dry vanillin works as good, bourbon vanilla extracts are my favourite, also bourbon beans are amazing, but not worth the extra money for cookies IMHO, for beans I like the most bourbon (Madagascar), Indian and Tonga and only Indonesian didn't work that well for me, but I've only bought it once, it could've been a bad batch with flat fragrance, but for cookies every type of vanilla would work really well, I love vanilla so I put a lot, but you could use less/more, experiment)

240g flour (I use all-purpose flour, but if you throw 50:50 AP+bread flour could lead to even better results but you would want to use more white sugar and less brown sugar, otherwise it could become really chewy and gooey and appealing for some, disgusting to others)

*1tsp (heaped) corn starch

Laravel cache folder permissions issue: "ErrorException: flock() expects parameter 1 to be resource, bool given"

Hi there, I get this error from time to time in very different situations. Login, verification email resend, my api routes, ... It seems to be a folder permission issue, but I somehow fail to address it. I'm using Laravel 8.

This was a (not working) solution from stackoverflow:

chmod 775 storage/framework/cache
chmod 775 storage/framework/cache/data

sudo chgrp www-data storage/framework/cache
sudo chgrp www-data storage/framework/cache/data

Now the thing is that I host my website using Plesk. The user associated with the websites, according to my understanding, is not "www-data". But I tried the command with this other user as well and it didn't change anything.

I'd appreciate your help a lot, thanks!

Starting your journey to increased health.

I want to preface this information by saying that I am not a professional, hell, i'm not even certified. However, I have been training and studying nutrition / dieting for 8+ years now and feel I can speak on most subjects confidently.

###Trading is a mental game. You need to be mentally sharp in order to be performing your best. Being physically healthy helps with this mental clarity.

The journey to health and wellbeing is always personal. Nobody can make these changes for you. The changes you want to see can vary, everyone has their own goals and idea of what they want to look like.

#Some basics that I’d like to touch on before diving into anything too involved.

Your body uses an amount of calories every day to fuel itself and activity – this is called your Total Daily Energy Expenditure or TDEE. The difference between how many calories you eat and your TDEE is what determines whether you gain weight, lose weight, or stay the same weight.

> Eat less than your TDEE (a deficit), and you will lose weight. Eat more (a surplus), and you will gain weight – and if you’re doing strength training, some of it will be muscle. This is often referred to as “Calories In, Calories Out” or “CICO”

This link will help you figure out what your TDEE is. Be honest with how you answer these questions. https://tdeecalculator.net/

Here are some broad general guidelines on “cleaning up” your diet that will serve you well:

  • Prefer whole foods as much as possible
  • Eat plenty of vegetables
  • Avoid snacking between meals if your goal is weight loss
  • Limit consumption of sugar, sweets, junk food, and alcohol
  • You don’t have to give these up entirely, just be smart about it, and understand the trade offs.

For tracking your “calories in”, tools such as MyFitnessPal or NutritionData are very useful. They keep large databases of calorie and macronutrient information at various serving sizes.

  • Protein: Protein is important for muscle gain and recovery, among other things.

  • Fats: Fats are NOT BAD, in fact, fats are important for satiety, hair/skin health, hormonal health, etc. Do not neglect dietary fats.

  • Carbohydrates: Carbs are generally used by your body just for the energy content.

#Diet &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;You do not need to design a daily food plan and follow it religiously You need to keep track of what you eat, and know how to count calories

A file server on your phone (Android), web access, e2e encrypted.

I've been playing with an idea of a file server on my phone to solve all my file sharing needs without uploading anything to the cloud. This week I released a new version of the app which allows web access to the files on your phone: select files/folders in the app, copy the link, open in any browser.

Main benefits:

- no limits on file size or type, list/search/preview/download files in the browser

- JavaScript-based server-less client that executes in the browser

- the browser will connect directly to your phone if you're on the same local network

- web link parameters are passed as a hash (#abc) and thus are not sent to my server

- no analytics, cookies or other tracking that would expose your links/files to me

- end-to-end encrypted connection using libsodium for cryptography

- server is running seamlessly in the background even when your phone screen is off, serving clients continuously

- zero-setup, no sign-ups, no accounts, free, no ads

If this sounds interesting to the /selfhosted community I'd love to answer all your questions! I have serious plans for this and all your suggestions are very likely to get implemented quite soon :)

Sample link, served straight from my phone: http://web.recall.im/#peer=c7e0f38a7f60752b4fa3017807fc731f2c8cb87b3d7d35c8131196c74daa847c;share_id=ffa6d8b66487bf7ffab93884ce535df5

I Read It So You Don't Have To: Leggy Blonde (by Aviva Drescher)

While I would never have imagined myself characterizing Aviva Drescher as 'a breath of fresh air,' I cannot overstate how much I am looking forward to reading her book after my last deep-dive (Alex and Simon's Little Kids, Big City). Aviva may be many things, but I am wholly confident that proudly-married-to-a-man-who-ejaculated-during-childbirth is not one of them.

Even the cover of the book sets my mind at ease -- a sun-kissed Aviva sits cross-legged in a bucolic field, smiling coyly at the camera as if to say, "Come, take a seat! Would you like to hear about my many phobias?" On the back cover, Aviva channels a young Janice Dickinson as she poses in light-wash bootcut jeans and a black button-down, her sleeves scrunched up in a particularly arm-circulation-impeding way and her thumbs hooked awkwardly into her front belt loops as if she were a cowboy adopting an especially exasperated stance.

As I open to the inside cover, however, I am met with a momentary jolt of panic that I must have, inexplicably, purchased the wrong book. According to the blurb, I am -- contrary to my expectations -- holding a memoir written by "one of the boldest cast members of Bravo's The Real Housewives of New York City" and "most talked-about stars of reality TV." I am utterly at a loss as to who this could be referencing until I read on and hear the ghostwriter* gush about "Aviva's trademark wit, wisdom, and no-nonsense candor," after which it immediately becomes clear to me that this book was written by an alien whose only exposure to the vast spectrum of human emotions came from reading Chicken Soup for the Soul books.

*and yes, this one is absolutely written by a ghostwriter; we'll get back to that later.

Far be it from me to scoff at a good pun, but the four paragraphs of summary text on the book's inside cover contain no less than three distinct leg-related puns (a pun-to-paragraph ratio of 0.75, for those of you keeping score at home). We're told that Leggy Blonde (Strike 1) is "a story that stands all on its own" (Strike 2), and Aviva is described as a "native New Yorker [who] stands on her own two feet" (Strike 3). I hope we didn’t start off this leg of the journey on the wrong foot, but I'm not sure how much of this I can stand.

Despite (allegedly) receiving her JD from an actual accredited law school, Aviva is inexplicably compelled to include her high school (The Fieldston

Awakening Moment stories 1/2 - Milk, Cappuccino, Champagne

The current skin event has additional stories available from getting the skins. Since most people won't get all the skins, I'm posting them here (from data mining). Most of them expand on the event story. (In two posts due to length limits - Part 2)


Milk - Lord of Demons

"Today is spring cleaning day at Satan's Coffee House.

Without even realizing it, it's already been a long, long time since Coffee and I came to live in this forest.

At the start, it was just the two of us, but later, there came many friends.

As the number of people in Satan's Coffee House grew, all kinds of objects also piled up in the coffee house over the days and months.

So we decided to use today to do a thorough cleaning.

"...Is this your dress?"

As she was helping me straighten up the room, Black Tea suddenly asked this question. I turned and saw she had fished out a long, black dress from among my clothes.

"Could be."

I thought it looked a little familiar, but it definitely didn't look like a style or cut that I would have chosen.

Then, Black Tea bent over and dragged out a much heavier object from the same place she had found that dress.

"...Is this yours too?"

She was referring to a giant black battle axe in her hand, with a complex look in her eye that said, "Do I even know you?".

Seeing that finally jogged my memory.

To tell the story of that outfit, one would have to go back to a time long, long ago.

--At that time, there wasn't even a "Satan's Coffee House".

At that time, me and Coffee, and our Attendant, were living in a town together. Up until a great fire burned Attendant to death and turned our house into a complete ruin.

In order realize our Attendant's dream from when he was still alive, we opened the first coffee house in the town. With Tiramisu's help, it did pretty decent business.

But not long after that, Tiramisu came to find me in secret and told me the truth.

All of the thriving and prospering that we were experiencing was just the work of Tiramisu, making it seem that way to us in accordance with our Attendant's wishes, which had been entrusted to Tiramisu before the his death.

The humans never truly accepted this new coffee drink. They were only screwing up their courage and coming to our shop to drink some because Tiramisu made it worth their while.

Moreover, Tiramisu said,

I'm a huge fan of Vampire: The Masquerade as anyone who knows me can attest. However, minor details are often overlooked in the spirit of getting to the juicy bits of gaming. In my twenty-five years of gaming, I've created a bunch of little details that helps me make my worlds seem a little more grounded.

75 Mundane Details for Vampire: The Masquerade Chronicles

  1. Vampires tend to set their temperatures upward of 75 degrees in their household for comfort.

  2. Many vampires really like tropical humid and hot environments.

  3. Vampires love hot baths and showers. They often enjoy them for sexy feedings.

  4. Vampires who can afford it enjoy hot tubs and sun tanning booths. The later don't actually affect Kindred but they are vaguely enjoyable.

  5. Vampires often wear sunglasses at night, not just as a fashion statement but because they have to deliberately blink.

  6. Generally, vampires lose about 10 to 20 pounds post Embrace due to organ atrophy.

  7. Yes, Embracing is nasty ugly business with expelling undigested food. Anne Rice oddly mentioned this but most other media doesn't.

  8. Vampire mouths are the one warm part of their bodies as they produce saliva and other things necessary for working elements.

  9. This means blood popsicles are things they can and do enjoy.

  10. Even with the blush of life, food tastes terrible.

  11. Vampires can digest food with blood but they will expell the former eventually.

  12. If you have the Blush of Life and are a male, that is actually a way possible to ghoul someone. Technically, women as well. Yes, you know what I mean.

  13. The most common ways to ghoul someone are sex, Dominating them into drinking your blood, or outright explaining the process.

  14. If someone hated you before Blood Bonding them and they know, they can usually resist and it is a good way to make a Hunter or someone utterly insane.

  15. Whenever a vampire dies, the Prince of the City has a process for dealing with their ghouls. They're either sold, traded, or more often killed. This is known as the Funeral Clean-Up.

  16. Like What We Do in the Shadows, most vampires never Embrace their ghouls outside of the Giovanni, Ministry, and Tremere. This is due to familiarity breeding contempt. There is no correlation between this and the exception clans' reputations for psychotic evil.

  17. Vampires with the Blush of Life can have sex and very High Humanity v

I made a real-time file transfer webapp and am looking for feedback - exoo.io

TL;DR: looking for feedback on exoo.io: real time file transfer webapp which is fully free and secure, without file size limit while respecting your online privacy

Hey guys,
So I tried to make the most out of this all pandemic free time thing and created a website as a side project that I hope some of you could find useful: exoo.io
I've just turned it live and would really appreciate if you could share some feedback.
It's a simple file transfer webapp that works both locally and across the internet.
It's powered by webRTC (mainly used in VoIP/videotelphony apps nowadays) so everything is encrypted and happening between browsers: files are never uploaded on any servers and the transfer is as fast as your network allows it to be!
It's been very useful to me for transferring files from my mobile to my laptops or even in between my PCs (and it's really fast on the same local networks). 
But it could also be a good alternative to existing file transfer services if you want to share large files or if you're just concerned about privacy and don't want to upload your files to third party servers.
I'm all against intrusive annoying ads and a big online-privacy preacher so I made everything free, without ads or cookies whatsoever.

If you want to know what's under the hood: Angular for the front and some c# for the backend
Would love to hear some feedback from you guys as I've put a lot of hours into this side project and I really hope some of you could find it useful. 
I plan to implement new features in the near future and why not a mobile app so if you have any suggestion features, i'm down for it :)

Thank you for your time !
