Hi! New here. I started dieting a year ago, at 145 pounds (5 3 female here) because I didn't want to continue the trend of gaining a little bit of weight every year, I realized I would eventually become overweight that way. Now I am at 132, fairly close to my ideal weight of 124. I took it really slow, trying to rewire my brain to make good choices in order for the weight loss to stick in the years to come. Now, I have plateaued at this weight for about a month, and I know why: I get cravings at the end of the day and end up going 200/300 calories over. I can't seem to stop without a massive amount of willpower, which is super odd, since I don't struggle so much during the day. Anyone else? Any tips?
This is probably the most positive feedback I've seen on an event, and it's easily the most fun I've had in PoE in the last 2 years.
From my point of view, since Betrayal league launched, the quality of leagues has dropped substantially. My engagement with leagues has gotten consistently shorter, to the point where I didn't play Heist much at all past the middle of the third week. And I think the reason is pretty clear:
People don't want to have to engage in the Atlas in order to collect the resources that enable them to engage with league content, let alone do the 4-8 hour "running through zones" simulator that leveling through the main story has become. Just allowing players to engage in the league content, without restrictions, is a fun and engaging experience that adds variety to a game that can rapidly begin to feel same-y.
Imagine a situation where you could engage in Heists, endlessly, just by buying heist contracts from a vendor for currency that you collected within heists, and then take that character out of that environment and go crush maps and Sirus.
Imagine being able to Delve from level 1 as your leveling option, bypassing the main story altogether, only leaving Delve to do the Labyrinth to unlock your ascendancy points.
Imagine Synthesis was entirely self-contained, you purchase the tiles from an NPC for currency earned within Synthesis tiles, farming for fractured and synthesized items, then using those items in the Atlas to destroy the conquerors.
The constant interruption and mode-toggling that players are forced to do in order to engage with league content (for example: stopping heisting to toggle to farming maps for Heist contracts or in order to engage in the outdated and miserable trade system in this game forces upon us) is a barrier to fun.
Stop putting up barriers to fun in a video game, GGG.
So, I ran across a story earlier about Best Buy employee snagging customer's online GPU order when it arrived at store before he could pick it up.
That sucked and hoped it doesn't happen to me. Well, it just happened to me too.
To recap, my order arrived at store on 1/27 but sat at 'preparing for pickup' for most of the day which was odd. A call to Best Buy (referred to as BB from hereon) customer service revealed that it was still in transit and was due to arrive later that day (in other words BB employee who snagged it needed to return it). Status changed to 'delayed' from that night to today 1/29. Called in again today, customer service puts me on hold then came back that a request was put in today for it to be shipped from another location and due to arrive 2/5. So that confirms some bastard BB employee enjoying my GPU. She (customer service) was half contained giggling because I knew what was up and mentioned earlier in the conversation that I read on the internet about BB worker snagging some customer's GPU and wanted to make sure that wasn't the case.
More funny than mad what we have to endure to get a GPU these days from shortage to scalping to camping to combined orders to tariff and now BB employees snagging it before you can pick it up.
I realize the shape is actually very efficient to build, ridged and aerodynamic. I have 2 Cybertrucks on order but I am skeptical of Q3 delivery and design. Looking for feedback.
Looking to move away from my current Broker due to awful App and Reliability.
I am from the UK and just looking for a broker that isnt awful.
- Etoro: Limited stocks available.
- Trading212: Questionable Downtimes + Withdrawing Issues
- Hargreaves Lansdown (current) : Awful App. Huge Fees.
- IG : Trading Hours limited to opening times. Account creation currently Down

- Crypto currency as a bonus.
- Decent charting software..
There seems like theres so many good US Brokers but they arent accepting UK accounts when ive tried.
Is there anyone here from the UK that can recommend me a good broker to use?
They all seem to be broken in some way.
The Blockchain technology, the nodes, the hard wallets, the memes, it's just genuinely fun!
It made me a lot more mature virtual/digital wise.
To all new comers, welcome and have fun. The best time to experience it is now.
It's honestly worth it.
My first couple of episodes have been interviews of people who, luckily, have Discord accounts. But, this won't be the case going forward. I want to make the interviews as easy for my guest as possible, and I obviously can't expect everyone I'm interviewing (wide range of people - academics, lawyers, political activists) to jump through hoops in setting up accounts, installing software, etc, for a particular platform.
What's the easiest solution for this? I could ask each guest individually what software they have... or, I could find a platform that doesn't require the guest to have an account and is accessible by browser... or I could go for a good old-fashioned phone call... what do you think?
(Recording isn't an issue because I simply record the computer audio.)
I’ve made a few worlds now and all of them have lead into the same demise. There’s not enough food, there’s not enough oxygen, there’s not enough power, it’s too hot, most of this because I don’t plan ahead and just go at it. Should I make a base in creative and try to rebuild that to make a good base?
Having a hard time to getting my head around tithing. Of course I pay my taxes. Is tithing surrounding only to church or do you could all giving? I guess I am having a hard time cause my background is in finance and I am quite cautious/frugal with my money. Anyone care to help me out? Do you tith pre-tax or post tax dollars? Do you do the percentage of your monthly income? What about bonuses? Thank you :)
