A Detailed Guide For Building Your Own Gaming PC

2020.09.23 19:08 Bushott A Detailed Guide For Building Your Own Gaming PC

Building a PC is actually more entertaining than you think. However if you don't like to do research about a part's specs, then you might not find this helpful. This is how you will truly value your PC, this way you will look at your PC and know its worth, instead of looking at a box shape with some lights.
This guide is useful when building from scratch, since it will go through all parts one by one in the best possible order to greatly reduce the amount of times you have to go back and change parts. (You might not even have to go back and change parts at all).
If you need to upgrade and/or still looking for parts, skip to the respective section for the part, you will profit aswell from reading this guide.

Before we start, there are a some things that you have to be clear about:
  1. This guide will not Build the PC for you. This is a guide for you to know what to look for and which parts are most suitable for your build.
  2. Read every single thing you don't know about each part's specs, obviously you don't have to go crazy with all things. I will be mentioning things that YOU NEED to look for, but the more curious you are the better.
  3. This will help you easily determine most incompatibilities and help you build everything part by part so you don't have to go back to a specific part and change it over and over.

  1. Google for your preferred web page for building PCs. I don't want to seem like promoting a Webpage in particular, but PcPartPicker worked great for me and they give you warnings regarding incompatibility. (Other websites might do the same).
  2. Ask yourself: "For what am I building this PC". To run a game in particular? perhaps to have the best of the best? who knows? Only you. It is based on this that you will build your PC and estimate a budget (notice how I said estimate a budget, because it will vary as you learn more about PC parts).
  3. Once you know what you want your PC for, you will have to preplan. This is having an idea of what GPU you need to run certain games, and is actually the most notorious part of a PC, so think of one, but might not be the definitive GPU (you might even want to change GPU brands).
Notice: Some RGB counterparts will be more expensive, so if you want a lot of RGB on your PC, you know what to expect on that budget. More on this as the guide goes on.

First Part: CPU
Forget about that beautiful case you saw somewhere or those cool shaped RAMs or the flashy Motherboard, CHOOSE A CPU FIRST.
How To Choose A CPU For Your Needs
  1. First of all, know your options, Intel and AMD are very good, check out for those 2. I don't recommend going for any other options unless you know what you are doing, however if you follow this guide you can then decide on other CPU's.
  2. Please take your time to read about the CPU specs. Things to look for are Cores, Threads, Base Clock, Boost Clock and their general performance in your trusted benchmark webpage. All these specs differ from Generation and Model.
  3. A CPU and a GPU will "Bottleneck" if they are not equally powerful enough, search what Bottleneck is, once you do, you can google to verify if your CPU and GPU do not Bottleneck. Best way to determine if both parts Bottleneck is through testing from other users. You will find plenty of people reviewing or doing videos regarding both parts Bottlenecking. (Yes you could use a webpage to calculate bottleneck, but these are not as reliable as tests).
  4. You don't have to worry between AMD, Intel and Nvidia CPUs and GPUs not working properly together or being incompatible, they will work smoothly in any combination. (It is possible to combine Radeon and Nvidia GPUs, but to set it up you might have to go through different steps)
  5. Now you can get a Thermal Paste: good Thermal Pastes are relatively cheap, make a big impact on your CPU temperatures and are easy to apply. So there is no harm getting a Thermal Paste, just make sure you get a quality thermal paste. And yes, some reduce temperatures better than others but also the way you apply it and the amount you apply helps reducing temperatures, look for the best way and quantity. (or apply it however you like, picasso).
Notice: You don't necessarily have to prioritize the GPU over the CPU, this is just in case you plan on only playing less demanding popular games like, CS:GO, LoL, Valorant, etc. they don't require the best of GPUs out there so you can go for a better CPU.

Second Part: Case
Cases comes in many sizes, the 3 most popular ones are: Full Tower, Mid Tower and Mini-ITX. Check out each of these case's sizes and spacing.
  1. Do you want to make a custom water cooling? If you do, make sure your case has enough space and also keep in mind the size of your GPU (since it takes a lot of space) to work with the pipes you would like to add. Be warned: you will need to work hard to mount and give maintenance. Also keep in mind some motherboards might offer compatibility with custom water cooling.
  2. It's time to choose the manufacturer, they will mostly vary in Aesthetics however keep in mind, you should probably want to make sure the case has good "Airflow", the name itself tells you what it is, but look it up if you are not sure. Best way to make sure the case has good airflow is to check reviews... multiple reviews, and good ones where they will specify what room temp they had during the test so you get an idea.
  3. Make sure you get a modern case, you won't regret it but you might want a modern case so you can use all of the motherboard's ports and not waste a single penny also when upgrading the motherboard, since you are more likely to change the motherboard before the case (this is another reason why the case is the second part).
  4. Check what's in the box for the case you want to choose, it might not come in with enough fans than you expected, or maybe it won't come with some of the things you see in some pictures.

Third Part: GPU
You probably did not expected this but, there is nothing complicated about GPUs.
  1. Look for features about each GPU brand and model, there are brands and model with their own features that is why I can't list them to you, depends on what brand you choose.
  2. You have already chose a Brand because you knew which one would run the game you want to play, or maybe you changed brands and models. Either way, now it's time for you to look about the specifications: Base Clock, Boost Clock & Memory Size. (I want you to look at this because they vary depending on Brand, Model and Series and they give you an idea on which you would rather choose)
  3. Now you most likely already decided your Brand, Model and Series for the GPU, check out the Display Connectors and keep that in mind, we will need this for the monitor.
Notice: The more Memory Capacity the GPU has does not mean better performance.

Fourth Part: Motherboard
Ah yes, the motherboard, remember the CPU you chose? and the case you chose? here is where you will be limited to your motherboard choosing. (choosing the right motherboard might take awhile specially with all the features one motherboard can have and all the different variations). Also if you plant to use multiple GPUs, you should probably look for a motherboard with these: SLI (for Nvidia) and/or CrossFire (for Radeon) and yes, a motherboard can have both of these.
*IMPORTANT: Please read motherboard specs and features, literally anything you don't know, look up what it is, this is critical for building a PC. Looking for everything will also let you easily identify incompatibilities. Some motherboards does not include Sound Card and/or Wi-Fi cards.
  1. First, and I mean it, first you must make sure that your motherboard fits the case, motherboards commonly come in mini ITX and ATX, look those up in google and make sure which size is the one for your case (obviously you will realize a mini ITX motherboard can actually be used on a mid tower or bigger).
  2. Now you will choose a motherboard with the right Socket depending on the CPU you chose.
  3. Now make sure that the motherboard's BIOS is up to date with the CPU you chose, or you will get firetrucked up yours. Pro Tip: google "Best motherboards for [CPU of your choosing]".
  4. Great, with all those 3 filters, you can freely look for a nice looking Motherboard for your PC build and read the specs, yes please read them you won't regret it. Specially since I almost bought a motherboard dedicated for custom water cooling, I was about to pay extra for nothing.
  5. Some other important things to look for in a motherboard are the amount of VRM and their quality. The amount of Memory Type and also how much Memory Speed is supported, the storage drives slots available. Another lesser thing to look for in a motherboard, is that each motherboard brand offers their unique features, check them out if you feel like and see which one you like the most.
Notice: Wi-Fi Cards are not mandatory, they are more of an option.

Fifth Part: RAM
There is more to look for a RAM than you might think, don't just look for a RAM based on the amount of GBs it has. RAM comes in different Memory Type and have different Memory Speed and CAS Latency, check out what role both of these terms play in a PC to choose your preferred one.
  1. You can buy individually RAM usually comes in pair, properly named as "RAM Kit", which some are 8GB (2x4) or 16GB (2x8) or 32GB (4x8) or 32GB (2x16) etc. If you still haven't figured it out, let me explain: Ex. we have 16GB (2x8). The "16GB" is the total memory capacity, this total memory capacity is divided into 2 different RAM sticks, each one with 8GB capacity. (Think carefully which kit you choose, since your Motherboard has limited RAM slots).
  2. Which RAM to choose? one that does not exceeds the Motherboard's max Memory Capacity and that is the right Memory Type for your motherboard while also making sure the RAM can run with the CPU. Another pro-tip: google "best ram for [CPU of your choosing]"
  3. Once you have chosen a RAM brand, and want to increase your RAM Memory Capacity, you have buy the same brand of RAM and RAM Model.
  4. You can freely choose the RAM's Aesthetics you like the most (also, RAM can be more expensive just because they have RGB). There is a catch though, look up if any Brand's RAM model has any known issue with certain motherboards or CPUs. Since looks might be deceiving.
Notice: if your motherboard supports ECC RAM, then get a RAM with ECC, or change motherboard and save that extra money.

Sixth Part: Storage
Probably the simplest part, SSD is a lot more faster and expensive than the HDD, so much faster that if you have an SSD and you don't install windows on the SSD you must really enjoy looking at your OS booting up.
  1. SSD is faster for gaming, yes, game loading times is not mainly determined by GPU, its by storage drives. But SSD gets expensive as you get more Storage capacity, so you can have SSDs and HDDs both in the same motherboard, if your motherboard has the designated storage slots for the drives, which I hope they do in, its almost 2021...
  2. Look for these terms: Form Factors for Storage Drives, SSD, HDD, Write/Read speed, Random write/read IOPS.
  3. Check special features for each individual storage drive from each brand.

Seventh Part: Cooler
This will be long because of all the different things to cover.
First of all, Search what OverClocking a CPU is. You don't need to know how to OverClock yet, as it also depends on which CPU you chose, but if you are interested in OverClocking, I recommend you learn how a CPU Clocks and Voltages works together, then you learn how to OverClock.
Answer these questions:
Does your CPU comes with a stock cooler?
Yes No
Do you plan on OverClocking your CPU? You must buy a Cooler
Yes No
Highly recommended to buy a Cooler You don't need to buy a Cooler
*If you don't want/need to buy a cooler you can skip to the next part*
Besides custom water cooling, there is Air Cooler and Water Cooler (AIO). AIOs are coolers already built that will only require screwing to mount and do not take up much space, perfect for RGB builds. However, AIOs might not fit your Case and some Air Coolers are not compatible with your motherboard.
  1. First choose if you are going with Air Cooling or AIO, both are good ways to cool the hottest of CPUs, so don't think Water is worthless or Air is worthless. The one thing that makes an impact between Air or AIO, is that AIOs are usually more expensive.
  2. If price is not a problem, then check out which cooler you like the most and take these into consideration: How much they can cool the CPU during load and idle times while keeping an eye on how much noise (dBA) they more they cool the CPU. (The amount of noise is personal preference, if you want a quieter place or don't mind the little noise)
  3. After choosing one, make sure it fits your case and/or it is compatible with your motherboard. Best way to check this is looking for Reviews, Youtube videos for the specific case and cooler or asking on Reddit or the Cooler's webpage might provide that information. (Yes, if you know the measurements of the case and the Coolers it should fit, but there could be some exceptions or a little piece from the inside which will block the cooler, best bet is the 3 previous suggestions).
Notice: I do not talk about custom water cooling installation, there is no specific way to install it so you would have to carefully measure and get the individual parts, but I already covered some of the things you need to consider where we talked about the Case.

Eighth Part: Power Supply Unit
Hopefully the webpage you chose to build your PC is able to estimate your fully built PC's Watts consumption, from this estimate you will choose a proper PSU. Before we go on, forget anything you read about PSUs, this part has a lot of mixed "opinions". Once you read more and more about PSU you can have your own opinion about PSUs.
  1. Look what are the differences between a Fully Modular, Semi Modular and Non Modular PSU. (Fully Modular becomes more expensive, but opens up for more compatibility and any future parts upgrade, this is a very important thing to consider, however you might not need a Fully nor a Semi Modular PSU).
  2. It is important to check the PSUs Certification. Any Certified PSU is a safe choice, you might want to read why PSU are certified and what each type of certification means.
  3. Now like any other part, PSUs also comes in with different features depending on the brand and their different models. Also keep in mind the most important things to look in a PSU is the amount of output pin slots and the size of the PSU will fit your case.

Ninth Part: Monitor
You sure have one in mind, but listen carefully, read about every terms in a monitor, know what those 1ms and 144hz you often see everywhere means.
  1. Be mindful when choosing a Monitor Size, a 27" 1080p monitor looks like it has less Resolution than a 24" 1080p monitor, and this is because of the PPI. Look up what that is and then you can have an idea of what would be the ideal Monitor Size and Resolution.
  2. Now, if your GPU has an HDMI 2.0, to fully take advantage of your GPU, get a Monitor with an HDMI 2.0, maybe your GPU has DisplayPort 1.4, which offers more bandwidth than HDMI 2.0, then you would want to consider buying a monitor with DisplayPort 1.4. Look all about the different Video Connectivity Protocols. Keep in mind that you don't need to have the exact same protocol on both ends, for Ex.: You can connect the DisplayPort cable, from the 1.4 on your GPU into the 1.2 into your Monitor and work fine.
  3. Again, each Brand and their models have different features and design, look around which one you like the most.

That is all about the crucial parts of a PC, you can then add another GPU, or another case fan, or a toy, even a toy, like an anime figurine or whatever, seems to be trendy now a day.
Hopefully you found this useful in any way possible, and I would be a very proud to know you read everything just to build your PC, your "Baby" if you will.

I'll leave these useful web pages that I personally think you should know about while building a PC. - Use this to check out all information about a certain CPU. (Don't let the weird names and numbers scare you) - A website to Build your PCs and is also very good when you want to compare different part options.
Obviously you can also use YouTube and Reddit for reviews and/or specific questions, comparisons and statistics.

Please consider leaving any kind of feedback, if there is something that should be reviewed/changed on this guide, do let me know so I can work on it ensure this guide as flawless as possible. Other than that comment anything you did like, as always following this subreddit's rules, I will be more than happy to read all comments/questions. I would also appreciate anyone else answering other users questions as you would be helping me out while I am busy on something else.

2020.09.23 17:30 Hto215 How I Passed Security Plus With No IT Background

This is really long so I apologize in advance.
For those of you that are about to take the test, reading posts like these is what helped me pass.
I don't have an IT background. I was in the military and my job had nothing to do with IT. I blindly applied to a DoD Help Desk job and the recruiter told me I should get Sec+. After a lot of on and off I decided to go for it. I studied almost exactly 3 months. But looking back could've probably done it in one month. I was laid off 12 weeks and should've studied for it in that time, instead I started studying the day I went back to work full time. Work definitely got in the way of studying. I recently left my job and decided to buckle down and just sign up for the test. I bought a voucher that expires Sept 24 so I would stop dragging my feet and force myself to take the test before that date. Again, I had already been studying on and off for about three months but wanted to nail everything down pat.
Here are my methods:
Read the Kindle version of Darril Gibson's Get Certified Get Ahead (GCGA). This was a great book. For someone that had no clue about computer stuff, he makes it easy to understand. I enjoyed reading it. I didn't think it was dry and the Simpsons references were nice. I scored a 34/75 on exam at the beginning of the book. I wrote down all the Remember This sections of the book and reviewed those and the end of chapter reviews after finishing the book. Highly recommend if you're able to learn from a book. I believed I scored an 84% on the test at the end.
I bought the app to go along with the book. It was $8.49 from the app store for Android. Unfortunately the app crashed every time I used it but I made it work for my study purposes. I let the publisher know. Apparently it had to do with my phone model as they had not heard of that issue before. I have a Motorola G6. Anyway that app was helpful when it did work so I highly recommend.
After finishing the book I pulled up the exam objectives. I know I should've done that first thing. I realized that I didn't know half the objectives. I think it was that I didn't remember everything I read. In fact when I referred back to the book for certain things I honestly didn't even remember reading certain sections. That's why 3 months is too long to study, well at least for me. You start forgetting things. Anyway I listened to Professor Messer's YouTube series while making notes on the objective list. His course was good and for those of you that learn well from video, that's probably your best choice.
I purchased Prof Messer's study notes and practice exams. The first two exams I scored a 77. The third one I waited on and scored an 83. I retook all the exams later on and scored in the low 90s/high 80s.
I also bought Jason Dion's new 65 question practice exams that came out a few weeks ago on Udemy. I realized how much I didn't know or remember from the book. Directory traversal!? Wth is that? I got a 72 and a 68 on the first two exams. This is considered failing because an 80 is required to pass his exams. So I googled directory traversal and Mike Chapple's video series came up.
So I watched Mike Chapple's video series. I liked that he walked you through things like how an XSS and XSRF attack is done. He also demonstrated lots of command line tools. This definitely helped me understand those things is greater detail. Although some of the video topics were very dry. I took like 100 pages of notes while watching the videos. Did I retain everything? Certainly not. I recommend this series if you still need more study after reading GCGA and Prof Messer.
What's weird to me is that not everyone covers every single topic, whether it's the book or the video series I watched. This is why it's important to use multiple resources.
For the hands on portion, I followed the labs from GCGA. Although my Kali Linux VM never worked the way it was supposed to.
I went back to Dion's exam and passed the 3rd one with an 82. Nice! I took the 4th exam and scored a 78 I think.
The day before my exam I studied for about 9hrs. I used a Google doc that someone wrote up here on Reddit. It covers all the exam objectives. To whoever that fine person is, thank you very much.
I took Dion's 5th exam and scored a 78. So I only passed one exam. I was panicking and looked on reddit for answers. Turns out many people score in the mid to high 70s on his exams as still pass the actual exams. In my opinion, Dion's exams were perhaps tougher that the actual exam, probably because they cover stuff beyond the exam objectives. I think I'd still recommend them, there are lots of log questions and I didn't know much about reading logs before doing those exams.
If you really want to have an exam quality test, I'd say Prof Messer's are the way to go.
Total cost of study materials:
The book on Kindle: $10
The app: $8.49
Prof Messer's notes and exams: $40
Dion's exams on Udemy: $12.99
Now for the exam. I signed up to take it online. I read a few posts that people had severe technical difficulties with that and I started to panic. I looked to see if I could schedule in person and I'm not sure if testing centers or closed or just booked solid but there were no open spots for this month or next month. So online it had to be. I was super nervous and didn't sleep well the night before. My time for the exam was 12pm. I reviewed notes for a few hours. I signed on at 11:30 took pictures of my room, which pretty much only had a bunch of house plants and a desk and then a pic of my ID. I sent those in and suddenly the PearsonVue software closed on my computer and a minute later started buffering up the test. It was about around 11:45. The proctor never said a word to me. It was almost like I didn't even actually have a proctor. I took the test over WiFi and had a little stress about that but there were no issues. Overall I was impressed by how smooth everything went, the horror stories I had read made me nervous. Also my computer is 7 years old Windows 10 and it worked fine.
The exam was easier than I expected. I don't know if I just ended up getting an easy exam. Or maybe I over studied. I was worried it was going to be really challenging based on what I read on here. There were some questions that definitely only had one answer and it was obvious what it was. But a handful definitely had multiple potential answers. I know many people say they feel like they are failing the whole time. I felt pretty confident that I was not going to fail as I knew enough of the answers were definitely right. I skipped over the PBQs and answered all the multiple choice first. I had about 25mins left to do the PBQs. Then I reviewed my many flagged questions and changed some answers. I only got through about half of them when time ran out. Which could be for the best because who knows what would've happened if I changed all my answers.
The PBQs were difficult but similar in style to what Prof Messer's were, so definitely understand those. I used every minute of the 90 minutes and had 79 questions total. I scored an 821.
I read so many post on here saying "I passed and so can you" and thought yeah right, I don't know about that. But seriously if you put in the effort to study and take the practice exams and try to really understand the material, you will pass. Big thanks to everyone on this forum, Darril Gibson, Prof Messor, Jason Dion, and Mike Chapple.
Now I'm going to be moving so I just need to find a job. Please, if you have any questions, ask away!

2020.09.23 07:20 mainvpshosting What is URL Hijacking?

In this era where the businesses are covering the extreme point, URL hijacking is one of the most sturdy issues that is coming forward in nowadays, whether it is a Startup or a renowned organization, everyone is having their website depending according to their services, data, and customer.
More than unlike, the website is hosted daily on various servers, but the main important perspective is security. URL hijacking is the famous expedition to break down the security of the website by changing the URL of the original website, implicating and dragging the visitors from the original website to another hacked website that has not been searched by that person.
In URL hijacking the original URL is being converted to another URL i.e. Original URL is hidden and the person is pulled down to another website. So, to protect this kind of URL hijacking issues cybersecurity experts have hired that act as a savior to our website.
All the problems related to URL hijacking can be seen particularly on those kinds of websites that do not have SSL certification so this is the first problem to get into the URL hijacking. This technique is done to reduce the traffic which comes to our website to transfer your traffic to another website which is not the information you are looking about.
So we can say that your URL hijacking is a process in which the URL has been removed from the search Indian index and replaced by another URL, in this way the ranking has also been abolished and there are plenty of visitors to drop day by day.
Main VPS is there to help you out with the following points that should be kept in mind while hosting a website and preventing it from URL hijacking:
1. It is recommended to use a website firewall to protect your URL not to be redirected to another URL. This will protect you all URLs and if someone tries to replace your URL with another URL, it will act as a barrier between them.
2. It’s not suggested to connect your machine with the public LAN or Wi-Fi with a mysterious password, and your privacy creates a good source of URL conversion. People are unaware of these kinds of problems that can directly attack our machine, PC with public Wi-Fi.
3. There is a lot of software and plugins available online like websites that dance with all kinds of Malware worms and other defective threads which may affect your website that has been hosted on a server.
4. Another point to keep in mind is live software as it should be up to date because hackers mainly attack those systems which have not been updated.
5. Google is providing its feature to secure your URL and your website to stop an unwanted redirection of your URL to another URL.
This is some information that should be aware of those people who are running their website. Besides hosting and domain there are various other services needed for a website to protect and keep it safe.

2020.09.23 04:31 Lucille_Wednesday I'm tired and unsure of where to go next.

I have been with my husband (Wayward Spouse) for about a year, we met and got married extremely fast. We both know this, but we eloped and this was something I thought we both really wanted. He is the one who brought up marriage, over and over, whereas I was unsure at first. We finally decided to go for it at about 10 months of dating as I had really grown to like the idea of eloping and having a ceremony later in life when we could afford what we really wanted.
Dday was probably a month ago. He was sexting with upwards of 15+ people online. My heart is so broken, I get so sick when he's on his phone now. He periodically lets me check his phone. At his request to try and "build trust back" since we both want to keep this relationship going. He deactivated his Twitter, but I still get nervous CONSTANTLY. I'm not one to pry however and I don't want to snoop through his things. However, a couple weeks ago I had to go on a trip for a week he couldn't attend. When I came home I was so excited to see him. But when I got home he was acting off and when he went to the restroom I just peeked at his computer, he had an email from Kik the messaging app, now we used this to text sometimes in the early days of knowing each other since it wasn't blocked on my colleges Wi-Fi. But I haven't gotten emails from the app in months. And it seems weird that he would get one so long after deleting the app, unless he might have downloaded it while I gone..
Here is where I am uncertain of what to do,
He is still my best friend and we spend everyday together. He makes me laugh till my stomach hurts and smile till I'm sore. He is smart, witty, and such a goof, but most importantly, he is my best friend. I have never felt closer to anyone. Which is why I am so unsure of what to do. I THOUGHT he loved me. I am still so certain he might love me. That maybe it is a porn or sex addiction. We have still managed to keep a somewhat healthy sex life. And he says he wants to keep this marriage and relationship for the rest of our lives. Which I do too, but I don't want to hurt anymore.
But he is in the military.. I am scared he will cheat in person while gone or come home and leave me? Or even that he will sext people for 6 months. I feel a little trapped. I lost my job because of Covid, I moved closer to the base he works on for him. I moved away from my college for him, switched to totally online. I don't have any friends in the new city I live now and when he comes home from work he wants to shower, cuddle, eat, then bed. And by that point it is too late for me to go out by myself. I'm an hour from my "friends" and nobody has visited even once since we moved in together since july.. I don't own a car of my own and spent a lot of saving on college last semester and on our new apartment. I currently rely on the use of his car and his finances since I have no income from losing my job. I feel hopeless and like I'm doing something wrong?? He still makes me happy and I love him with everything. But I am now unsure that he ever even loved me? But just married me to get a larger paycheck. I hate having to use his money and when he is gone on deployment I already plan on trying to find a new job with the fact I will have the car full-time. I don't really know what make me want to post this.. But I just want maybe a little insight or something.
I haven't spoken to anyone in person about this because I don't want to hear how stupid I am and "how could a smart girl like me have let this happen?" Or "you should have done more for him" since I know I take on a more submissive role into our relationship (which I typically enjoy) but now it feels like if I speak to anyone I will be judged ?
I don't really know if my post makes any sense. But I hope that maybe someone might just give me insight or advice or even a story of their own and help me with where to go now. I just don't want to leave me best friend..
Thank you..

2020.09.22 22:30 Alprovan Every Vote is Going to Count In Order to Send Trump Home, or to Prison, Whichever Comes First. Your Vote is Important!

Every vote counts this election, even if you live in a red state, as I do.
If Joe Biden is elected and if at least four seats are flipped to the Democrats, the repairs to this nation and it’s people can begin.
Mail-in voting is the key to turning out more votes, but it is going to take planning on behalf of everyone to get those ballots in on time. If you are interested in voting by mail, in most states, you will have to request ballots be mailed to you. Requesting mail ballots information can be found by visiting your local County election website.
I live in northwest Georgia. I have voted by mail for years, as I am disabled, and because I am disabled, I only have to request one time to have every relative ballot sent to me for an entire election year, including primary, runoff, special, and final election ballots. Otherwise, I would have to request each ballot event separately.
Georgia amazingly, despite it’s love and devotion by it’s leaders to Trump, has decided to allow any and all registered voters to vote by mail, with no excuses demanded, despite being a red state and governed by a former Secretary of State who did everything he could to fix an election that he did win, barely.
So, you can download a ballot request in Georgia up to 180 days before an electoral date. The ballot request must be faxed or mailed to the county elections office. No fax machine? No problem. I have never failed to receive a ballot requested.
Ballots in my county are mailed out quite early and I make sure to mail it back in almost as fast as I get them. Unfortunately, in Georgia, the voter must affix the return postage for the ballot and they are very picky about following every instruction, including putting the ballot in a special envelope inside the return envelope, etc. - and signing a statement, blah blah blah. No postage, if required, rejected. No signature for comparison? Rejected. sure to follow those directions, to make your vote count!
Now...what is it looking like, pertaining to the states that are going to allow voting by mail?
Here’s a quick rundown;
If you live in the following FIVE states, you likely are very familiar with mail-in voting, because ballots are automatically mailed to every registered voters;
Thus, the list has grown to nine states that will automatically send out ballots to every registered voter;
These NINE states (and DC) will automatically send out mail-in ballot REQUESTS to every registered voter;
In the following TWENTY-FIVE states, you may, all by your lonesome, request an application for an absentee ballot, citing the Covid-19 virus, or it may be that the rules have been relaxed so that no reason for requesting a ballot is required;
And finally, and unfortunately, if you reside in the following states, Covid-19 is not a valid reason for requesting an absentee ballot, thus forcing their residents to vote in person, unless something changes VERY soon;
I cannot imagine why New York is on that last list. That is a blue state.
But looky here – at least seventeen red states are opening the doors for mail-in voting. It doesn’t come without a little extra effort on the part of the voter, but it can be done. That’s at least a little progress, isn’t it?
Real progress will come whenever we can get on our computers or phones and securely log onto a voting website, satisfactorily identify ourselves, and cast our votes. That can be done easily and with present day technology. How do I know it? I recently renewed my driver’s license and my auto registrations online. My identity was easy to verify and it was required for both.

2020.09.22 20:13 MikeJesus The Birds Hate Me for What I Have Done

I have made a powerful enemy.
There’s approximately eighty thousand pigeons that roost within Prague city limits. They roam through the farmer’s markets looking for drops of food, they sit on the Art Noveau windowsills that loom near the city center, every figure of Czech history who has been rewarded with a statue is also rewarded with a pigeon patron who will sit and shit on top of their heads for all eternity. Every inch of the city is filled with those gray birds.
But not today.
As the farmer’s markets get set up the peddlers mumble to themselves about the surprising lack of avian companionship. The twilight commuters look up at the bare windowsills and try to figure out what has changed in the architecture of the city overnight. The layer of droppings on Winston Churchill’s head is at least a day old. This morning, as the city slowly rustles awake to the midi tones of cellphone alarms, the pigeons are gathering outside of the main train station.
They’re here because of me.
The birds hate me for what I have done.
For weeks I have only traveled by night, for weeks I have been avoiding the inevitable, for weeks I had hoped they would simply forget. But they didn’t and I know they won’t. The birds will not let me live freely until I pay for what I have done.
I set out this morning to bring the feud to rest, but as I emerge out of the subway and see what awaits me beyond the Plexiglas windows I get second thoughts. The park outside the automatic doors of the train station has been swallowed up in feathers. From the sea of gray, hateful beads of crimson stare at me. They’re waiting.
There’s two bags filled with Bohemia Bakery croissants in my hands. I can’t control the shaking. I can’t deny the inevitable. As the loudspeakers squawk out announcements of delays in a dozen muffled languages I can’t help but to think about how I got here.
There has to be a better word for it than break-up. We were engaged for the better part of a year, sharing a bed for five, dating for seven. A break-up sounds like a cracked plate, a minor inconvenience, something that you shrug off and carry on with your life. What happened between Julia and me was a multi-ton hydrogen bomb.
She said I never introduce her to work friends. So I did. I introduced her to the IT guy who I would occasionally grab beers with after work. She got to know him more intimately than I ever did. Much more intimately.
Suddenly, the person who was my one constant over the past seven years was telling me we could still be friends. Suddenly, the comfortable pad in the center that was affordable from two paychecks was replaced by a five person flat share in the housing projects. Suddenly, I couldn’t show my face in the office anymore.
He set up the remote-work software on my laptop. It took fifteen minutes but that moment dragged on for eternity. He mumbled an apology. My hand tightened into a fist, the uncapped pen on my desk gleamed with sharpness but I remained impotent. He regularly went to the gym. I didn’t.
When he finished the set-up he offered me his hand and without thinking I shook it. I even mumbled a “Thank you.”
I wanted to rip off my tongue and throw it out for the birds to devour.
Working from home was impossible. Not only was I in the midst of a personal cataclysm, but my four roommates had social lives so loud and amorous that they seeped through the paper-thin walls every second of the day. Whenever they brought someone home there was no escape from the echoes of lovemaking. I knew that back in my old apartment, in that cozy flat in the center, Julia was screaming the IT guy’s name. I had been with her for long enough to be able to imagine it all so vividly.
I needed to get out of that house.
‘Bohemia Bakery croissants, that’s a good treat right there, brother.’ The voice, followed by a familiar smell of distillates and festering bandages, drags me back into the present moment. Outside, the congregation of pigeons is slowly growing. In front of me, a Prague train station vagrant. ‘Got a lot of those croissants there, brother. Mind helping a hungry fella out?’
He looks like he’s been through a war-zone, his tattered rags the uniform of an army that loses in perpetuity. Beyond the Plexiglas the pigeons stare. I give the homeless man one of the croissants. I do this partially out of human kindness, but mainly in hopes that the pigeons see that I am not a monster, that the pigeons take pity on me.
The sea of beady eyes doesn’t flinch. They don’t care.
‘God bless, brother, God bless,’ the vagrant says as he starts to walk away. He stops. After considering the crowd of pigeons he turns back to me. ‘A lot of pigeons, eh? God bless, brother.’
He sets off towards the doors and I know I should follow him. I know it’s time for me to pay the price for my sins. I know there is no other way to get rid of the birds. But my legs are frozen.
When the homeless man is a couple of steps away from me a dark thought enters my mind. Maybe I can trick the pigeons into taking their revenge on someone else. They’re pigeons, how smart can they be? I open my mouth to yell out to him –
I want to give him another croissant. I want to suggest he take both the bags of offerings. I want to make him the target of the avian hatred.
But before I can vocalize my offer the plan falls apart.
The vagrant walks past the automatic doors into the park outside. The pigeons pay him no mind; he is completely invisible to them. They’re here for me and they’re getting impatient.
As the automatic doors grind to a close three pigeons fly into the station. I reach into my Bohemia Bakery bag and start turning croissants into crumbs between my fingers. The birds are getting restless.
Walking into the Bohemia Bakery on Michalská Street and setting up my laptop for a day of excel scrolling was a completely arbitrary decision. There’s hundreds of corporate owned coffee shops in Prague that have stable wi-fi and inoffensive Spotify playlists for ambience. I ended up there completely by accident. Yet as soon as I got settled I knew I wouldn’t be leaving any time soon.
Bohemia Bakery had all the makings of a coffee shop office. The refreshments were cheap enough to be drunk without a second thought, the neighborhood was safe enough to quell any fears about my laptop being stolen and the majority of the customers were locals. I have no qualms with tourists or immigrants, but American clientele does have a tendency to turn their private conversations into public three act plays. The chatter in the coffee shop was limited to complaint-filled grumbles, as is Czech custom.
The good work environment that Bohemia Bakery provided, however, was completely irrelevant to why I kept on coming there day after day. From the moment I saw her my visits to Bohemia Bakery ceased to be work related. I kept on coming back for Bára.
I was in a dark place. Every other morning I woke up to messages that I had sent to Julia in the middle of the night and forgotten about.
“I’m scared I’ll forget the smell of you.”
“You’re a scab I can’t stop picking.”
“Remember when we made love in the mountains?”
The response was always the same:
“Jesus, Mark, stop sending me these weird messages.”
The texts were desperate attempts to change her mind about moving on. Somewhere, in the depths of my soul, I was still sixteen and believed that one poetic message could turn back the clock on years of a stagnant relationship. I was sick with heartbreak, there was no one out who could make me happy like Julia did. The moment I saw Bára I knew that was a lie.
She made the question “Cash or card?” sound like a line of sensuous poetry pried from the throats of love-struck bards. When she prepared orders she didn’t move like a twenty-year-old barista, she floated behind her counter like a goddess examining the offerings that were being burnt in her temple. That unflattering gray and gold uniform that Bohemia Bakery would force on their employees to wear looked downright erotic on her. God forbid when the milquetoast music the coffee shop had turned to something with an actual beat. If there weren’t any customers Bára would quietly dance.
I tried not to stare. I wasn’t very good at that.
She didn’t mind. The moment when she winked at me I knew I was in love.
I stayed in the coffee shop for much longer than my job demanded. When I was around her all thoughts of Julia seemed absurd. Bára kept on smiling and winking and occasionally she would stick out her pierced tongue at me. After a week of nervously sneaking peeks at the coffee shop Venus I asked her out. After her shift was over we went to sit down in a nearby park.
There are so many parts of that night that have made themselves permanent in my memory; the way her hand slipped into mine before we even reached the park, the smell of cherry blossom and bubble gum that stemmed from her neck, the way her piercing clinked against my nervous teeth, the way she looked up at me when we made love. But none of the memories are as permanent in my head as the words she said when she threw out crumbs of stale croissants to the pigeons that gathered around us in the park.
“Ever looked a pigeon in the eyes? They’re angry creatures. And they talk. Always better to stay on their good side.”
Even as those tiny beaks pick at the droplets of dough scattered through the dirty tiles of the train station the pigeons keep their beady eyes locked on me.
There are more than a few of them now. The out-of-towners who come to Prague for work from the countryside are keeping the automatic doors opened wide. For each person that leaves the train station a pigeon sneaks its way in. The people might be leaving for different jobs but the aim of the birds is singular. Their aim is revenge.
An Uber Eats driver waiting for his next order plays a beautiful melody on one of the pianos that the city council has strewn across the city. He stops as I walk by him. The procession of pigeons behind me is impossible to ignore.
People keep on looking at me. I’m sweating. I know what’s coming. I know that there’s only so long that the pigeons are willing to wait for justice. I know how this all ends.
But still, there’s a part of me that wants to ignore the reality of my situation. Out of habit I take out my phone and text Julia.
“There’s a group of pigeons chasing me through the train station. They mean me harm. Help!”
Her living situation could have been better. Bára shared her two bedroom flat with three other girls from her hometown. On most nights the only thing that kept our lovemaking sessions out of Bára’s roommate’s eye-line was the sheet we draped from the bookshelf.
She moved out from the countryside with her three bestest friend to go live the crazy, cosmopolitan life out in the capital. I don’t think Bára’s roommate felt very cosmopolitan on the nights I stayed over.
There were also the pigeons. The mattress that Bára slept on was propped up against the window to the balcony and every morning I would wake up to the cooing of sky-rats. They usually managed to catch me about fifteen minutes before my alarm clock went off, and they were a gentler welcome to the waking world than the blaring of midi tones off my phone, but the constant cooing definitely made the Sunday morning cuddles less romantic.
Pigeons and roomates aside, the first couple months of our relationship went smoothly. All thoughts of Julia floated away. I felt no need to send her weird texts or obsess over whether she was still thinking about me. I was just enjoying my Bohemian Bakery beauty.
An old classmate of Bára’s came to visit. She knew all about me, Bára had spent the past couple of weeks preparing this girl to meet her “Super cool boyfriend” and whilst meeting a person who knew more about me than I knew about them would have intimidated me back when I was dating Julia, I didn’t mind by then. I had grown into my role. I didn’t know what made me cool or even what made Bára like me so much, but after months of living in my new, lucky reality I stopped questioning it.
Bára stole a couple of bottles of wine from the bakery and invited me over to get drunk with the rest of the apartment. I had the most minor of moral qualms about Bára’s theft, but after a couple of glasses my dislike of stealing became a purely hypothetical topic rather than an actual source of bother. I listened to the four girls drunkenly tell stories from the countryside.
‘Holy shit,’ Bára’s visiting friend said after the fourth bottle of wine had been drained, ‘We’re the only ones from our graduating class who don’t have any kids yet.’
I laughed. Hard. I was etching towards my early thirties and the thought of producing offspring seemed like something that wouldn’t happen for a long, long time. The idea that somewhere out in the countryside people were getting married at twenty seemed absurd to me.
As I laughed Bára kept her glass pressed to her lips. She drained it, poured another and topped me off in the process. We drank more. The other roommates went out clubbing. I was left alone with Bára and her visiting friend. We drank more. The three of us got drunk enough to lay down on the mattress.
One moment I was splashing water on my face trying to sober up and the next I tasted a kiss drenched in menthol cigarettes and red wine. The tongue that was caressing mine felt different. There was no piercing.
I opened up my eyes in terror realizing that I was not kissing my girlfriend. Bára’s friend looked up at me sheepishly. A familiar hand ran down my back.
‘It’s okay honey, it’s not like we’re married yet, we can share.’
I woke up with a horrible hangover the next day, it felt like my eyes were about to pop out of my skull and take everything I had ever eaten in the past 24 hours along with them, but the two naked bodies next to me assured me that my pain was temporary.
Overall, my life was good. With the help of the gentle cooing from the balcony I went back to sleep.
Then things changed.
We were sitting on the tram riding out to the farmer’s market to grab something to eat. There was a lull in the conversation, the type of lull where you throw out a random observation or a Facebook article headline in hopes of having something to talk about. She mentioned it as if it was the most casual thing in the world, as if it wasn’t a matter of any importance at all.
‘Missed my period three days ago.’
I think the lady at the ticket office is calling animal control. There’s a good thirty pigeons behind me now.
I have been mobbed by them before. Back in the early days, before I knew they were after me, they’d chase me while I was going out for groceries, or out drinking. There would always be a confused driver or a subway to help me escape. I have never tried to face the pigeons.
I start making my way towards the doors. This charade has been going on for long enough. I try to trick myself into believing that the pigeons will go easy on me, that they won’t really hurt me.
Yet as I walk towards the automatic doors one of the birds jumps up and pecks at my jeans.
Those beaks are sharp. Sharp enough to give me second thoughts. Sharp enough to make me think that maybe the solution to my qualm with the pigeons is to pack up and move.
I try to think of a country without pigeons, I can’t, but I presume there is one. There has to be one.
Deciding to move my life instead of paying for what I’ve done, I start making my way down into the subway. They follow.
But that’s fine. I convince myself that’s fine. As soon as the subway is about to arrive I can just break into a sprint and hop on. No way all thirty of them can follow me. Worst case scenario I’ll be locked up in a metal tube with two or three angry pigeons. I could take those on if needed.
I have killed pigeons before. Well, theoretically at least.
We didn’t talk about it. Well, we did, but not really.
‘Missed my period three days ago.’
‘Oh shit.’
‘Oh, don’t worry.’
‘You sure?’
Then we moved on to talking about something else. For the whole day there was no discussion of Bára’s potential pregnancy, but from the moment that she mentioned it a cold sweat broke over me. Somewhere in the back of my head I started to imagine her as a lifelong partner.
I didn’t like what I saw.
What I once thought of as a face of perfection was now just a disparate collection of sharp facial features with crooked teeth. Her voice, her laugh, it all droned in my ears in a horrible, annoying way.
I tried to remind myself not to be shallow, not to judge the woman who I had been dating for nearly half a year based on her looks. That made the situation significantly worse.
As we were walking around the farmer’s market Bára started eating a sandwich. I knew that she didn’t buy it. I knew that she didn’t bring one. I knew she stole it.
Bára liked to steal shit. I didn’t mind her swiping stuff from the bakery, didn’t have empathy to spare for corporate owned franchises, but Bára stealing stuff from old folks got under my skin.
‘Hey, where did you get that sandwich?’
‘Found it on the floor. Ha-ha!’
She gave me a smile and a wink. I started to miss Julia again.
By the time we got back home the feverish dislike that I was starting to develop for Bára had turned physical. My head throbbed with some horrible strain of the flu that had crept into my system. I considered going home, but Bára assured me that the wave of fatigue I was feeling was just sleep deprivation. All I needed to do was take a nap and I’d be right as rain. I was too tired to argue.
By late afternoon I was fading in and out of consciousness on Bára’s mattress as she piled more and more blankets on top of me.
‘Ah, c’mon, just sweat it out babe. Quit complaining, you’re a real man, aren’t you?’
Her voice cut through my migraine like the stolen cutlery she had in her kitchen. What made the sickness induced delirium so much worse were the pigeons on the balcony. They just kept on cooing. Even as I drifted off into frenzied fever dreams I could sense their dirty, feathered bodies rustling behind the paper-thin walls.
‘What if I actually am pregnant?’ I heard a voice ask out of the darkness. I was far too deep in the sweaty, lethargic limbo to identify the source but through context clues I figured out who was asking. I pretended to be asleep.
‘What if I actually am pregnant?’ Bára asked, again, this time prodding me with her frigid foot.
I let loose a torrent of mucus filled coughs, hoping to dissuade her from trying to talk to me. It didn’t work. Her cold toes ran across my burning abdomen.
‘Mark, what if I actually am pregnant?’ She asked, sweetly.
‘Can we talk about this tomorrow?’ I groaned.
‘Sure,’ she hissed with the intensity of a silenced pistol.
Bára’s roommate was snoring, the pigeons outside were cooing and just as I started to get used to the jarring soundscape of the bedroom Bára started to sob next to me.
I pretended to be asleep, and eventually, I was.
I make my way down the stairs to the subway platform with dreams of escape glowing in my heart.
I could grow a shitty beard and live in some cabin in the woods, or lounge around on some exotic beach, or I could be freezing my ass of in the arctic. The only important thing is getting on that subway and riding off to somewhere where there are no flying rats that demand vengeance.
The screeching of metal. Below me, the subway has just arrived. I hold on tight to the railing and start jumping down the stairs two at a time. I’m praying that the doors of the train will stay open long enough for me to make my escape.
Some of the birds stop hopping down the stairs and ascend into flight. The feathers of the pigeons fit right into the metallic gray of the subway station in the worst possible way.
There’s a new mom who doesn’t quite know how to handle a stroller stalling the doors to the subway. I still have a chance, I can still run in and make my escape – but just as I am descending the last three steps towards the platform one of those beady eyed vermin dives straight at me.
I lift my hand off the rail to shoo the pigeon away, shifting my balance. Suddenly, I’m falling. Suddenly, my head crashes against the concrete. Suddenly, I’m back on my feet, running towards the subway, screaming past the burning pain that has materialized in my ankle.
I slam into the closed doors. Everyone on the train stares at me and my bizarre pursuers in horror. Except for the baby. The baby points and giggles and laughs from its carriage as the train slowly rumbles into life and disappears in the dark tunnel.
The next train is coming in eight minutes.
I’m at the edge of the platform and there’s a good fifty pigeons staring at me.
‘Jesus, you’re still here?’
I woke up to the sound of Bára’s roommate angrily stomping around the bedroom. My fever was gone, but somehow it had managed to carry me into the late afternoon.
‘It smells like a frigging sex dungeon here dude. Least you could have done was pop open a window.’ She towers over me, eyes filled with disgust, as she cracks open the balcony windows. ‘And you should definitely talk to Bára. It’s none of my business but when she left to work today she was… Gross! Eeew!’
‘Gross?’ I sat up on the mattress. The roommate didn’t look at me, she just kept on staring out of the window. ‘Bára was… gross?’
‘No, you idiot. Look outside. No wonder those birds have been waking us up every morning. There’s a goddamn nest on the balcony.’
As soon as the moist covers slid off me the dizzying stench of sweat overpowered any amount of fresh air coming in from the window. Bára’s roommate jumped back in disgust and with a barrage of comments about how disgusting I am, she left.
Among the discarded plastic bags and cigarette butts there was a roughly picked home of straw. In it there were three little eggs that looked like dirty oversized tic-tacs.
Bára’s roommate pressed a broom into my hand.
‘Go where?’
‘Go push that shit off the roof. They carry diseases, you know.’
‘Why me?’
‘Why you? Because you’re a frigging man, act like it.’
Memories of the IT guy setting up my remote working software crawled through the back of my head. I grabbed the broom and went out to the balcony, intent on proving my masculinity. All I had to do was just push the nest off into the street below and Bára’s roommate would get off my back.
Yet as soon as I got outside on the terrace I realized I wasn’t alone. On the neighbor’s windowsill, just a meter or two away from the nest, was a pigeon. The bird’s feathers were fuller than any other pigeon that I had ever seen, it’s eyes shone in a blood red, hateful glow. This was no ordinary pigeon.
And it was watching me.
I moved up the broom to the edge of the nest, but my arms froze. Something about that animal’s blank expression was telling me that I was about to take a step into a world from which I could not return, something was telling me that I was about to make the biggest mistake of my life. An ancient, Hammurabi-era truth loomed behind those red orbs.
An eye for an eye,
A tooth for a tooth,
You harm my young and we will harm yours,
The front door opened. I could hear Bára’s tired voice.
‘Is my man still here?’
‘Yeah, your middle management looking dude is out on the balcony, trying to work up the balls to get rid of a pigeon nest,’ I heard her roommate say.
The passive aggressive insult didn’t even register with me. I was lost in the showdown with the pigeon. Those eyes meant business, and that beak looked sharp enough to break the skin.
I could pick up the nest and take it outside, I could put it in a tree, I could google how to deal with this situation, there were so many things that I could have done but, before I knew it, there was a pair of cold hands wrapped around the broom. Bára pressed her body against mine and before I knew it the broom did its job.
The pigeon’s eyes went wide. Like a paper airplane covered in gravel the nest tumbled down into the street with the gentlest crunch. Within seconds it went from being a bastion of blossoming life to being some leash-less dog’s dinner.
‘Come inside. We need to talk.’ No kiss. She was angry.
The pigeon’s eyes were still locked on the crushed eggs running over the pavement. A wave of self-loathing washed through my chest. It was time for an apology.
I cleared my throat. The pigeon’s eyes quickly darted back to me. That wide-eyed expression of shock quickly faded away. The balls of red that dwelled in the creature’s skull turned into focused, hate-filled dots.
“Look, I’m so-“
The bird launched at my tongue.
My avian predicament catches the attention of a group of Chinese tourists gathered on the other side of the platform. For a split second the shuttering of cameras rises above the cooing, but as the pigeons get closer the clicks and flashes became imperceptible static.
The pigeons have me cornered. I’ve started throwing the croissants from Bohemia Bakery at them wholesale, but for every pigeon I distract there are five more that are thirsty for blood. They’re thirsty for revenge.
The birds hate me for what I have done.
With my back up against a map of the Prague subway system I look up at the ‘Next arrival’ board. The red numbers glare: five minutes thirty-six seconds and counting.
I fire off another text to Julia:
The birds will punish me for what I have done.”
I look out into the sea of gray and see a familiar set of red dots. The bird who’s children I killed leads the march.
I don’t have five minutes. I don’t even have thirty-six seconds.
Wings flutter, the birds take flight. With closed eyes I pray that my punishment will be swift.
It isn’t.
My skin burns with blood as the razor beaks bite into me. My hands barely cover my eyes as the pigeons try to claw at my face. They drag at my hair, they tear at my clothes, they peck at my jeans.
My agony reaches incomprehensible heights. With each bite of flesh they take, however, a sliver of my consciousness fades away. Before the pigeons get to the worst part of their punishment, I black out.
We sat in her kitchen; me, pressing a packet of frozen peas to my tongue and her, nursing a cigarette lit off the stove. Smoke drifted from her nostrils as if she was a passive-aggressive dragon.
‘Thanku, don’t kno wha got into that brd.’ My numb, bleeding tongue didn’t get my point across very eloquently but Bára understood what I meant. Those hazel eyes burrowed into me, watching every twitch in my face.
‘Not pregnant,’ she finally said, ‘Had my period this morning.’
‘Tha’s grea!’ I yelled, sending a trickle of iron into my mouth. I grinned. That was the first good news I heard all day.
She wasn’t smiling.
‘What if I actually was pregnant?’ She took a drag and looked away from me. Whatever nuanced reaction my face made wasn’t to her liking.
The conversation dragged on into eternity and at each turn I said the wrong things. Even if my mouth wasn’t slowly filling up with blood, even if my tongue didn’t have a beak-imposed lisp, I don’t think I could have salvaged that relationship.
I didn’t notice the bird at first, but as soon as I became aware of him it was impossible to fully focus on what Bára was saying. Right behind her, with my blood on his beak, was my red-eyed enemy. Soon friends joined him. The longer Bara and me spoke, the bigger our audience got.
Those beady eyes burnt with hatred.
I left the apartment, newly single, with blood in my mouth and a toothbrush in my pocket, and started making my way towards the bus station. I was about to fire off a text to Julia to let her know I was still in love with her but before I could unblock her number-
Something small and sharp snapped at my scalp. The flock of enraged pigeons descended me from the windowsills of the Soviet-era housing projects. If there wasn’t a subway station nearby I probably would have lost an eye.
At first I had hoped that the assault from the pigeons was simply a rare occurrence of an angry parent, yet they followed me everywhere. For months I lived my life in fear, desperately hoping that they would tire of chasing me, but it became clear that the birds would not leave me alone.
They wouldn’t leave me alone until I paid the price.
I keep staring out of the window. This makes the doctor visibly uncomfortable. He tells me about how my body was rushed into surgery, about how there is a good chance I have contracted a fair amount of diseases, about all of the permanent damage that the pigeons had inflicted on me, but I just keep looking out of the window.
I had an educated guess on the extent of the pigeon’s revenge.
An eye for an eye,
A tooth for a tooth,
You harm my young and I will harm yours,
The doctor eventually gives up on trying to elicit a reaction out of me and leaves me alone in my room. And I am alone. The windowsill is empty. The pigeons have had their revenge.
I breathe out a sigh of pained relief.
I get a text from someone who makes my heart flutter.
I look back at the conversation.
ME – 5:16AM: “There’s a group of pigeons chasing me through the main train station. They mean me harm. Help!”
ME – 5:24AM: “The Birds will punish me for what I have done.”
JULIA – 7:02PM: “What???”
In the stillness of the hospital room I type out my reply, my explanation. As soon as my scarred thumbs punch the words into reality a weight is lifted off my chest. A chapter of my life has ended. I am free now.
ME – 7:02PM: “It’s okay. The pigeons have punished me for my misdeeds. I am scarred and will never be able to have children, but I am a free man. I love you.”
JULIA – 7:03PM: “Jesus Mark, stop sending me these messages.”

2020.09.22 15:31 heforgotmypassword Havent built anything since 2012, need a microATX suitable for travel with good gaming capabilites

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
Gaming (DOTA, Borderlands 3, Rainbow Six: Siege, COD, Elder Scrolls)
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
$1000 AUD not including monitor, ram, storage, mouse, keyboard
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
Before Christmas 2020
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
MOBO, CPU, Graphics card, Case, Fans, PSU
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Not fussed.
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
MOBO will more than likely need WiFi capabilites/space for a WiFi card to be installed.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
I need to build a MicroATX as I will be looking to transport the unit overseas.
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
Extra info or particulars:
I dont want to have to replace CPU or graphics cards within the next 3 - 4 years! Always will be looking to upgrade parts in the future. Have heard AMD is surpassing Nvidia in terms of R&D so personal preference is the better performing equipment.

2020.09.21 15:07 Rskaf Beginner's Guide

Hi, I guess a thread like this will already exist, but I haven't found it. I am new to this phone and I want to share some questions I have had.

I do not think this guide is very extensive, since the telephone system is very simple.

The first thing I have done when receiving the phone is to configure the settings, for this I have pressed the central side button of the phone and clicked on "Settings". There are several configurations with different subsections:

- Airplane Mode (stay off).
- Notifications.
- Preferences.
- Bluetooth & Wifi.
- Account & Info.

I have been configuring everything in order, from top to bottom (although before I have formatted the phone). It is all very simple. The most important I have done is:

* Change the time format to 24 hours (I live in Europe).
* Leave Display Time and Display Date activated.
* In the Display settings, I have inverted the colors so that the screen appears white (I have the LP2 black). I like the white screen better as it looks better.
* I have activated the WiFi and made the connection.
* I changed the Personal Hotspot name and password and then turned it off again.
* I have tried to update the phone and have registered a Light account.

Basically those are the first steps.

Then I have accessed:

Here it is important to access "Phone" and click on the number that appears and then on "Toolbox". Click on "+" and see if any option appears. If any option appears, we add it to our Toolbox.

I have had a problem on this last point. Supposedly all the options were added to my Toolbox. However, my phone did not show "Calculator", "Music" or "Podcast." I had to remove these options and add them back to appear in the menu of my LP2.

In "Music" the music is added and the playlists are edited. Music that is added will be downloaded to the LP2 if you have an Internet connection.

2020.09.21 03:43 byehi8709 Breakup aftermath: please help

This is the first time I've ever posted on reddit before, but this is also the first time I've ever felt like I needed help and advice from strangers. This all started in September 2019 when I moved to Malaysia for university, and in November 2019, I (20M) started dating this girl (20F) and we fell for each other quickly and the relationship was amazing. Fast forward to March 2020, when the quarantine started, we weren't allowed to meet for almost 3 months and that took a toll on us, mainly me. Fast forward to May, that's when I realized that since our relationship started really quickly, we didn't really get enough time to build a really strong emotional connection. It was there, but it wasn't as strong as the physical connection. Realizing this, I kinda started to be a little distant subconsciously (yes ik dick move I was and still am really mad at myself for that, but I couldn't help it) and we through a lot of fights after that, I came clean to her and told her what I realized, and we eventually agreed to break up, but we decided once we were fine we'd continue as FWBs. By the time it got to mid-July, I had to move out of my apartment since my housemates were both locals and since they went back to their families they didn't want to pay for rent and WiFi and stuff, which is understandable, and I moved to my friends' house which was in the same building but 5 floors above our apartment. From here, instead of coming to my place she started coming to my friends' apartment to spend time with me, and since she never had a close group of friends, I made sure she was involved in all the games and stuff my friends and I played together because I wanted her to be a part of it to make her happy. At this point, she and I were extremely close again and we still loved each other and we were basically an unofficial couple, and we kept talking about getting together again but I kept saying we'll just use some of this time to get closer emotionally (we really loved each other tho, its just we didn't know EVERYTHING about each other). In August I was supposed to get a flight back to my home country for some family events and I got a repat flight towards last week of August, and I was packing everything and I found her hairband which I wore from November 2019 till April 2020 which I only took off my wrist because I found a kitten in March and she kept biting it, and I didn't want it to tear or snap. I found the hairband and I gave it back to her (since I wasn't really wearing it and we weren't official) and she put it on my wrist saying that its mine and we're basically dating, which made me really happy. During the last few weeks before my flight, I kept wanting to spend time with her so everyday I'd be renting cars to pick her up and drop her home, but at the apartment I noticed whenever I ask to spend time with her she'll give an excuse and usually spend time with my other friends, one really close friend in particular, but if they ask to do something, she'd be the first to jump. I don't mind her spending time with my friends or other guys, its just that I was leaving soon and she was kinda discarding me and choosing everyone else over me. This one time when I picked her up, she was a bit tired and after getting to the apartment, she didn't spend any time with me she went straight to the my close friend's room (which has 2 other people too) and I followed just to spend time with her. All of a sudden, the three of us are alone in the room and she's not really talking to me but she's talking to him and she asks him for a shirt to borrow since she was a bit sweaty and wanted to change, which made me incredibly uncomfortable I left the room and went to my room, which led to her coming in 5 minutes later and asking what's wrong and if it was about the shirt. This started an argument about how discarded she was making me feel and how she'd rather spend time with him over me and how she could've just asked me for a shirt because I was literally right next to her and she responded saying not to worry and that he's nothing but a friend and that she loves me and if we ever break up completely she'd never date one of my friends, and she kept reassuring me that he's just a friend to her and nothing more, which eventually ended the argument and she spent slightly more time with me. My flight was a week later, that day I was taking my bags towards the lift after saying my temporary goodbyes to everyone, and at the lift I realized "I can't leave without kissing her again" and I kid you not, I ran back inside and all of our friends were watching so I got a little shy so I thought I'd settle for a hug and hugged her as tight as I could, but then she pulled me outside into the corridor and she kissed me and said she loved me and that she'd miss me so much and it made me really happy but obv sad at the same time because I didn't want to leave her. When I got to my country I had to spend quarantine at a hotel, and on the first day I asked her if we could be official again, and she wanted to too but she wanted a little time to think because of what happened in May. The next day she didn't reply to any of my texts, and I was like "oh she's probably busy, no problem, she'll reply when she's free" and she did, the next day. Our conversations became really dry, there was no effort from her part, she was on break from uni so even after I left, she was going over to the apartment to spend time with our friends. We had a few calls and she kept saying she'd call me at a certain time but she never did and she kept giving excuses about it, and this one time she said she'd call me at 12am, and I ended up staying awake until 4 30am for a call which never came, and in the morning she said she went to sleep early because she was so tired, and its fine but I asked her next time to just drop me a message about it so I wouldn't have to wait up like that. This continued for a few more days, saying she'd call, no texts, me waiting for a call that never came. Then on the 5th or 6th day of quarantine, we spoke a bit about the whole thing and we had a small disagreement about something, I'm not sure what it was, but after we cooled down the dating question popped up again, and she said she's not sure yet, so I told her I'd give her all the time she needs, I won't text her until she's ready, and like that we stopped texting. The same day before this convo and the previous days, everyday she said she loves me so much and she misses me so much, and of course I did too and of course I mentioned it back each time she did, and I said it myself a lot of times too, to which she reciprocated as well. 6 days pass by without a single text from her, and I wanted to call her so badly but I didn't because I gave her my word. After the 6 days pass, she calls me at 6am (around 9am her time because of the time difference) and we just have a really dry conversation, and I ask her why she called, if she was done thinking, and she replied saying for now let's just talk a bit, and we moved to that topic after talking and she asked if we could stay friends because she doesn't think we'll date now, and I asked if this was for now or forever, and she replied saying "for now.... Or forever" and at this point I already started tearing up, I loved this girl so much and wanted to be with her, but I understood, I wanted her to be happy. She continued on saying that the past month she was with me because of familiarity and she lost feelings for me and that's why she didn't really spend as much time with me as I wanted and gave a lot of excuses for it, and while crying on the phone with her all I said was thank you for the time we had together, you were amazing and you made me really happy and you made me a better person, I'm really grateful for everything, and she replied saying "I'm not as amazing as you think I am" and I thought she was just being modest at first, but then she told me there's something else she wanted to tell me, but she'll tell me another day. Me already dying from heartbreak didn't want to hear more news another day, so I asked her to just tell me now and get it over with, and after a few seconds of silence, she said "I fell for close friend's name here". At this point I started bawling and I cut the call because I was in such a mess. I realized she used me to get close to him and she used me for comfort, and all those feelings I felt about her liking him were real, and that I should never have trusted that to her he was "just a friend". She called back and I asked her who knows, she said everyone in that house, and even he knows, and I asked what did he think about it, she said he accepted her feelings and was down to try things and she said nothing would happen if they don't get my blessing for it. And I just cut the call and we haven't spoken since. All my other friends seem comfortable with what happened, no one had a problem with it as long as I was informed, and my "close friend" said that he didn't want my relationship with the others to get affected, which means he didn't care if mine and his was ruined because he chose her over me. For the past 3 weeks I've felt extremely lost and ruined and there's nothing I can do but there's this intensely heavy feeling in my chest and I haven't been able to sleep or eat properly. I blocked both of them on social media to stop myself from thinking about it but I keep hearing around how they're dating now and stuff, and each time it just kills me inside and I don't know what to do. I don't even want to go back to Malaysia anymore because everything I did there I did with either her or him. Everything leads to a bad memory, it keeps replaying in my head. I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

2020.09.21 00:52 500scnds [Table] I made a free alternative to Photoshop, that is used by 7 million people. Ask me Anything!

Source Guestbook
Questions Answers
I understand that people are always hesitant to answer this very specifically, but I'm always curious - given 7 million visitors, what your ballpark profit? And what's the ratio of the profit-to-expenses, which I assume is mostly server hosting costs as a one man operation? Most of my profit comes from ads. I make around 5 cents for every hour someone spends in Photopea (on average). In 2019, people spent 5 million hours working in Photopea, so I made around $250,000. I hope it could be 2x to 4x more this year :)
Photopea runs completely in your computer (after loads, you can disconnect from the internet and use it offline). I use only a file hosting, for which I pay around 50 USD a year.
the below is a reply to the above
How is that possible to only pay 50 USD/year when you get ~7 million people in a month and your site is 1.8mb. That's around 12tb/month. I don't know of any host willing to do 12tb of data for $50/12 I don't understand it either :/ I will ask my hosting provider.
the below is a reply to the above
Don’t! :) I already did :)
the below is another reply to the original answer
I'm glad you have a subscription option. As a policy I don't turn my adblocker off, but I'll totally subscribe as your rates are quite reasonable! If you're around and don't mind answering, how many subscriptions do you have? There are hundreds of people paying for Premium :) so about 0.01% of all users :)
the below is another reply to the original answer
How much do you think you're losing out because of adblockers? It is hard to tell, maybe between 10 to 40 percent :/
the below is a reply to the above
You should implement a donation feature as well, to offer more ways for users to support you. People can already order a Premium. I think it is better to get something in return (removing ads), so anybody who wants to support us can do it :)
First of all, thank you for making a great alternative. My question is, how would you compare Photopea to The Gimp in terms of features and interface? The interface of Photopea is closer to Photoshop than GIMP (so it is more comfortable to Photoshop users). I think all you can do in GIMP you can do in Photopea, but with a different workflow. You can open GIMP files (XCF) in Photopea.
There are many advanced features in Photopea, that are not in GIMP. The most important is probably the full support of a PSD format.
the below is a reply to the above
Have to confess I'd never heard about this software until reading your post, but your mention of the PSD feature makes me want to check it out immediately. I admire your determination, dedication, and skills. Thank you :)
the below is a reply to the above
Does it support vectors better than Photoshop? I don't like how limited it is in Photoshop. Even illustrator is annoying Photopea can open SVG and PDF images better than Photoshop. Just try it!
the below is a reply to the grandparent
Thank you for your program. I use it to make memes and do photoshopped things! You are welcome! I am happy that Photopea is useful to you :)
How did you learn how to make software? I was interested in computers since I was 14. I was studying computer science at the university between 18 and 25 years of age.
I studied theoretical computer science at the Charles university in Prague. Finishing the university was probably the hardest thing in my life (I do not enjoy learning as much as I enjoy creating stuff). But I also think it was the most valuable and productive part of my life and I am very proud of it :)
Here to say I've been using it, maybe the only white listed site on my ad-block. What was the hardest part to implement? The advanced foreground selection was quite hard. It is used e.g. in MagicCut. I wanted to reach the quality of (where you pay $2 per image), but it still does not work that well.
Anyway, I think MagicCut works better than all other free tools and many commercial tools, so it can save you a lot of money :)

You should look at U-2 Net a recently released paper with code that has amazing results I know quite a lot about this research :) The problem is, that people use Photopea for free, so it would have to run on their computers. They would have to download a 200 MB network, and unless they don't have a $2000 GPU, they would have to wait for hours to do such foreground / background detection.
the below is a reply to the above
From the paper: "To facilitate the usage of our design in computation and memory constrained environments, we provide a small version of our U2-Net, called U2-Net† (4.7 MB). The U2-Net† achieves competitive results against most of the SOTA models (see Fig. 1) at 40 FPS." Unless there's something similar but better or they're outright lying, 4.7 MB sounds like an extremely reasonable memory footprint and it's pretrained so nobody's going to max out their GPU. You might want to give it another look. Wow, that sounds great, I will put it into my issues:
the below is a reply to the grandparent
Not 100% sure, but a GPU is needed to train the network (which can take hours) and the trained networks usually do things in seconds or even faster. Users would still need to download the network, but it wouldn't be very computationally expensive. Such trained network can process the input in seconds on the GPU. If you process the input of the network on a CPU (even with multiple cores), it can take minutes or even hours. And training on a CPU can take weeks :)
I use Photopea regularly when developing web sites. I don't have to fire up my VM or limit myself to GIMP or Krita. The third most popular tech magazine in the Czech Republic, Letem světem Applem, was developed with the help of your tool. Díky! My question: will you ever open-source Photopea, at least partially? Hi, thanks a lot!
A huge part of Photopea is open-sourced and available at
the below is a reply to the above
I'm scared to even open that repo 😂. What hosting provider are you using that can handle 5 million users in a year? I have a local hosting provider from the Czech Republic. It is just distributing HTML, CSS and JS files (no server-side computations like PHP or SQL databases), so it is not that hard.
Hi! Two questions 1. Does photopea have support for RAW photo files of varying cameras? (.ARW for example) 2. Why do you think Adobe charges so much for their platform when your model is clearly fairly simple to produce (if one person can do it alone) and functions profitably? Hi! Yes, Photopea can open .DNG, .CR2, .NEF and .ARW files :)
There are programs that are much more expensive than Adobe products :) It is hard to tell, but I think it is because there are no reasonable alternatives, or the alternatives are not known very well.
the below is a reply to the above
As a Fuji user, .RAF support coming at some point? Hi, the .RAF format was invented by Fuji and has never been publicly described anywhere. I tried to ask Fuji to provide a description of their format, so that I can implement it into Photopea, but nobody replied :(
I think Fuji does not want you to open their files in any other software than their software.
the below is a reply to the above
I don't think fuji has their own editing software, most people use either Capture One or Lightroom, or Irident X-Transformer to convert into a DNG Photopea can open DNG without any problems :) but it is a real pity they don't store it in DNG directly.
I just discovered this software and it is bloody amazing. As a hobby animator, I'm wondering - Do you have any plans, or have you at least thought about, making an animation software in the same way you have achieved this? Something like Adobe Flash/Animate or Toon Boom Harmony. (I'm already sold on your idea for a video editor, since Davinci Resolve's free version has NEVER been able to render videos for me without crashing) There is a distinct lack of reasonably priced animation software that achieves nearly as much as these two ridiculously expensive subscription programs, without sacrificing something really important to animation. The closest thing to achieving what Animate or Harmony has is Blender's new 2d animate mode, and even then, you have to sacrifice convenient features like easy tweening. An alternative free (or one-purchase) animation software would make me - and so many other people happy. Now that I know this software exists, I'll be sure to donate to its production. Thanks! You are not the first one asking for this :) I wish I could make so many tools, but I am afraid my life is too short for all that work :D
If I manage to make a good team of programmers in the future, I would love to make such animation software.
Is there a comprehensive guide I can find for all the tools in photopea? I’m new to photo editing and still confused by the interface. Photopea is an advanced editor and it is hard to learn simply by using it. I wrote a manual here: .
the below is a reply to the above
You made documentation? What kind of unholy programmer from the abyss are you? Don’t let our bosses find out or we’re screwed. I made it after several years of explaining people how to do things in emails, etc :) Now, I can simply send them links to my documentation. It took me less than a week :D
I love using photopea! I open it almost daily. Is there a way to review the source and contribute pull requests? Have you thought about providing an offline or self-hosted release? Thanks! The open-source parts of Photopea are published on our GitHub: . We provide a self-hosted versions for money, as it needs to be updated regularly.
How would you compare it to photoshop? Photopea has about 90% of features of Adobe Photoshop, but there are some features of Photopea that Photoshop doesn't have (e.g converting PDF, SVG, Sketch, XD, Figma to layered PSD documents).
Also, only Photoshop and Photopea fully support the PSD format, so I think Photopea is the best alternative to Photoshop at the moment.
the below is a reply to the above
What do you think about GIMP? GIMP is great, but it can not work with PSD files properly. Also, the interface is quite different from Adobe Photoshop, and it is hard to use for former Photoshop users.
Do you pronounce it photo-pea, or photo-pee-ah? I pronounce it Photo-pea, but most of people pronounce it photo-pee-ah.
It is probably the most asked question in our subreddit :) /photopea.
EDIT: I did a quick search and here is what I found :)
the below is a reply to the above
Good to know I got its pronunciation right :D I like photos and I like peas. What made you call it photopea? I wanted it to be PhotoSomething, and I wanted a domain . Most of domains were occupied, until I found Pea :)
Not a question, but I just want to put this out there for all the non-developers, but the fact that Photopea was created by a single programmer is absolutely astounding. As a developer myself, I cannot fathom the productivity of this developer nor have I ever met someone that could be this productive. Teams of 10-20 developers could not match the functionality and feature list of photopea. And actually, here is a question after all, have you ever recorded or livestreamed yourself coding? I'm having a hard time imagining the pace required to be this productive. Do you have an estimate of the number of hours you have put into this? Hi, thanks a lot! I think I put between 15 000 and 20 000 hours into Photopea :) I never recorded myself programming, but most of it is just staring into the wall thinking, opening Youtube or Reddit from time to time (to "relax" a bit), and I writing code once in a while :)
Any chance your program can export files to work with a cnc machine? Sure, just tell me what format does that machine accepts? Is than an open format? Can you use e.g. an SVG?
Manufacturers often create their proprietary formats to make you dependent on their software.
the below is a reply to the above
G-Code is pretty common, although I'm unsure as to what Z-axis information you would capture in an image format unless it was texturized somehow and interpreted that as topography? Maybe like the color coded images to show 3 dimensions in a planar view. I know lasewaterjet cutting and similar that do 2D operations typically ask me for a DXF file or equivalent. I've never used Photopea for this (or even tried) but typically I take a vector format and import into CAD software to generate a DXF for this purpose. I know my media guy can never get me a format I need to import a logo and such for mechanical design. A DXF or similar vector would be amazing if it doesn't exist already. Hi, would you be able to write this into our GitHub? . And most importantly, would you be able to discuss it there with me, if I have any questions? I never worked with any CNC machine.
Hi !! Can I know about your backend ? There is a webhosting which stores one HTML, one CSS and several JS files. Photopea is written in Javascript and runs completely in a computer of the visitor.
the below is a reply to the above
Have you used any frontend frameworks? No, I wrote my own Javascript, HTML and CSS. I usually prefer to use what I know, instead of learning how to use new tools :)
the below is another reply to the original answer
How do you handle users that pay for premium? There must be some sort of database right? Yes, there is a database. I just wanted to say, that out of these 7 million people, the database is needed maybe for a hundred of them.
the below is another reply to the original question
Not without dinner first Take my upvote, too :)
Are there any new browser features or HTML features that will make your code a lot simpler? I would love if browsers let Photopea know, when Ctrl+T was pressed on the keyboard. People have been using the Ctrl+T shortcut in Adobe Photoshop for decades and almost every week, someone asks why it does not work in Photopea.
At the moment, when you press Ctrl+T in any browser, it opens a new tab (panel), and a we can not do anything about it :( I have been personally arguing about it with browser developers for over five years.
"Fighting" with browser developers is quite a big part of my work, which is quite sad :(
the below is a reply to the above
When in fullscreen Ctrl+T works in both Chrome and Edge, it triggers the transform tool. Maybe prompt the user to switch Photopea to fullscreen ? The website feels like a standalone app so it makes sense to get rid of the browser UI anyway. I think the Ctrl+T should be usable even when not in the fullscreen mode.
the below is another reply to the original answer
I'm sure you must've researched this thoroughly over the years but maybe stackoverflow seems to have a couple good answers on disabling new tab shortcut keys. Maybe have a look? Esp these 2: 1 - - you could make your own extension and then make that extension do the "Free Transform"? 2 - I'm no good at js but maybe have a look... I guess I could also just make my own web browser and ask users to install it :D
How about a Desktop version? That'd be great! You can go to and press More - Install Photopea. It will add an icon to your homescreen, which will start Photopea without the browser UI. But it works only in the latest Chrome, Edge and Opera.
the below is a reply to the above
What Api does that? Seems chromium only but i wouldn't care. Never heard of that. It is called PWA - progressive web apps, and the app can trigger the installing process
What are your plans for the video editor, and how can I keep up to date on its progress? (video editor here that loves what you did with photopea) I do not have any specific plans about the video editor yet. You can follow Photopea on Facebook or Twitter to know about the progress (links in my original post) :)
You mentioned your income is through ads. Have you thought of other avenues for revenue sources or ways to increase your current revenue even more to be able to hire more employees? Yes, I have thought about it, but I don't know about any ways, which could work better than ads.
Most of the current Photopea user can not afford to pay for the software, so I don't want to make half of features available only after the payment.
the below is a reply to the above
Would a premium version that's identical in features but without ads be an option? Unless this is already a thing? It is already a thing :) You can hide ads for $10 for three months. Also, there is no subscription, you pay manually any time you want. Ads come back once it runs out :)
What things does Photoshop do better than your alternative? Photoshop can open almost all RAW image formats (in their Camera Raw program). I think Adobe pays the camera manufacturers, so that they allow Adobe to open raw files from their cameras.
At the moment, Photopea can open only four RAW formats, which cover around 80% of the market.
Do you think that photopea has been a success? I use it for work everyday and I certainly think it is! I think it is the most useful thing I made in my life so far, so it is a success :)
Good stuff. Love a free image editor. Why is this already on the front page, with just 6 comments and 22 points? I don't know much about the Reddit algorithm, but I think it is also about how old the post is. E.g. if you get 20 points in 5 minutes, you will be on top of a post, which received 50 points in an hour.
What's your favourite video game? Also thank you the amount if complete trash I have cropped using photopea is immeasurable I received my first computer when I was 13 and PC games seemed too complicated to me (and most of them were in English, which I did not know well). I never had a playstation or a gameboy. So I never played video games much.
The first game I "understood" and truly enjoyed playing was Serious Sam :) I also spent A LOT of time playing Clash of Clans.
Will it stay free or is there a possibility that you're gonna put a price on that? Photopea has been free to use since the first release seven years ago, and I would like to keep it free to use in the future, too.
Love photopea, I use it all the time! Does anyone trouble you with any legal issues since it's basically an online photoshop? Thanks! I think the similarity of the interface of Photoshop and Photopea (and other photo editors) is a good thing. Imagine if each brand of computers had a different layout of a keyboard, because they wanted to be "different". I am very happy, that I can simply take any keyboard and start typing on it right away.
Maybe one time someone will come and say, that we have to make the background red, because the dark grey color is already used in their program. And we have to rename the Brush tool to "hair on a stick tool", because the Brush tool is already used in their program. But I hope such time will never come :D
the below is a reply to the above
Please make an April 1st version with copyright-friendly tools, that would be awesome. Brush – Hair on a stick Bucket – Metal container Move – Relocate and so on. Edit: April Tools’ Day That is a graet idea! :D
How do you approach creating something that is intuitive? How do you know that your logic is universally understood? Are there any examples of tools, tasks, icons that you have had to change based on feedback? Thank you and great work! The user interface of Photopea has been evolving for seven years and there were probably hundreds of suggestions from users, which I listened to and modified, to get what we have now :)
Hi Ivan, I've used Photopea for a couple of years for basic editing. Congratulations - it's an amazing tool. The only feature that prevents me from upgrading to a paid version is the font selection interface. There are far too many fonts available, they load slowly, are all obscure and not represented well in preview. Would you consider curating/refining the available fonts? Hi, thanks! It is completely fine to use Photopea for free, you don't have to pay for Premium :)
You can mark some fonts with a star, and then, you can display only the "starred" fonts. You can use filters to see e.g. only "sans" fonts and hide "comic" or "handwritten" fonts. You can enable Latin-1 and other language categories, to see only fonts with many letters (only professional fonts support more than 200 letters).
Have you experienced any pushback/pressure from the bigger players? No :) I have been in touch with people from Google, Adobe, Corel, Canva and other companies, evrybody was very friendly and helpful :)
Thanks for making Photopea- I'm certainly loving it. Will there ever be an offline version? Hi, thanks!
A big challenge is, that Photopea can not use fonts from your computer, and it downloads fonts from our server, when you choose to use that font. So changing fonts would not work in an offline version (except of a couple of fonts we could pre-store).
I think the amount of time people spend using their computer offline is decreasing, and will be almost zero at some point :)
the below is a reply to the above
If I use a font I have purchased, is it easy to implement, if you don't have that font on your server? Hi, just press File - Open in Photopea to load a font (TTF or OTF file) :)
Do you plan to keep photopea solely browser based? Many people think that browser programs are slower or "less capable" than desktop programs, but it is not true in the last five years. So a "download and install" version of Photopea would not have many advantages.
I could provide an offline version of Photopea, but at the moment, most of money come from ads, which would not work offline :/
the below is a reply to the above
You can try and make an Electron app, I know its essentially a browser but it would give that "native" feel to users. Hi, you can already press More - Install Photopea in Photopea and use it as a PWA :)
Great. Now can we please start working on a viable PDF editor that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars per year? Photopea can already do it to some degree :) have you tried it?
The PDF format was not meant to be edited further. But we are improving.
Thanks for developing Photopea. After your last AMA, I started using it. Is there a way for size of a new document to default to image dimensions on the clipboard? That's one of the handiest things in Photoshop so you don't have to either enter manually or overguess then crop down later. The size of a new document should be set by default to the dimension of the content of the clipboard.
But it works only in Chrome, Edge and Opera. Firefox did not implement the necessary standard yet. Don't know about Safari :/
You mentioned you plan on making a video editor. Have you considered an Illustrator alternative as well? Photopea already has many vector-related capabilities. It can open, edit and save SVG and PDF files. Somehow, I feel like a video editor would be more fun to make than an advanced vector editor.
the below is a reply to the above
Didn't know it supported editing SVGs. How does it compare to something like Inkscape? The interface is a lot different than Inkscape. Just try it and see how it works :)
I know this is a long shot, but any chance I can join on board with little to no knowledge so I can learn (for free of course)? 😁 It could be doing menial tasks for all I care. If not, any advice for someone like me wanting to change career path and code? I'm just tired of what I've been doing so I just recently starting some online coding courses but would like to learn more hands on if possible. Hoping to change career path for the future. Well, if I spend time teaching you, I will have to invest less time into developing Photopea :D
I have been often tired of what I did, I get tired of Photopea-related work from time to time. There is not just a bad job and a good job, there are many things in between. But whenever you have to choose between a simple goal and a hard goal, don't be afraid to go for a hard goal :)
How did you begin to scale up the workforce? What positions did you prioritise and how did the recruitment process go? I'm in an early process of starting up a web application and can see it being difficult going from working alone on a project to trusting people to share the same determination to grow it. Thanks I do not have any team, I still work on Photopea alone.
Hi. Great stuffs. I will definitely give it a try soon. May I give a suggestion ? I use GIMP for Image editing since I usually have to make some illustrations for my work. And GIMP provides me with the function of adding Text from another format, like LaTeX (to write math formula). Do you think this would be possible to implement in your app ? Hi, is the LaTeX text rasterized to pixels after you insert it? Or you can modify it in GIMP?
the below is a reply to the above
the LINUX version of GIMP has a module in the Render section which allows me to type in the LaTeX code and product an image of the formula. I am not really used to the terminology of image like vector or raster image. But once the formula is produced, it is not modifiable. So if I messed up, I have to redo the process from the beginning. We don't have such thing in Photopea at the moment.
I used to write my masters thesis in . You can also convert LaTeX to a PNG image here: (right-click the image - Copy Image, and paste it in Photopea).
Can it do animations? The only thing I use photoshop for at this point is it's animation ability, especially it's keyframe animations, where you can make a single frame last however many seconds you like. If it can do that, i can finally delete photoshop. Hi, we do not have such animation capabilities as Photoshop. But there is a special mechanism for making animations from layers:
the below is a reply to the above
This kind of animation capability is exactly what I was looking for. Does it allow you to view the animation as a preview before you choose EXPORT? Of course :) Just drag-and-drop a GIF into Photopea and try to export it as a GIF, it will take you around seven seconds :)
what was your eureka moment for photopea that whoa this is possible? Sometimes, when I learn about a new algorithm or a method, I wonder how elegant and ingenious it is :) Like - the person who came up with it should have been really smart, I wish I was also that smart :D
Have you considered using Patreon? Have you considered letting people subscribe for a fixed period if no ads? Hi, we already offer a Premium account, where you pay and it hides ads for a period of time. I know about Patreon, but I feel a bit uncomfortable about accepting money for nothing in return.
Is there a downloadable version available/in the works? You can go to and press More - Install Photopea, to get an icon to your homescreen.
i tried using it on my display tablet, there doesn't seem to be any pressure sensitivity? Hi, try to update your tablet (drivers, browser, os, etc). But it works on the latest iPad and on my old Android phone (it tracks the pressure of my finger). If it does not help, try to report it to the tablet manufacturer (as it will not work in any website, not just Photopea).
Is there support for sprite editing tools or just tools in general for game devs? Do you mean generating sprites, etc? It can do most of things Photoshop can do, but if you need something more, you can always suggest it here :)
What made you decide to create a free photo editor? It was just an experiment of analyzing PSD files in a browser. I gradually improved it. I did not want to make a photo editor during the first two years of work. But at some point, I realised - hey, it should not be that hard to make it into a photo editor.
How is this compared to GIMP? Hi, you can read this article:
But it is about Photopea from two years ago. Photopea improved significantly since then.
So is it WASM or just regular old JS + WebGL? I found this looking for a browser based alternative a while back and thought it was awesome, but the controls were a bit too advanced/inaccessible for my requirements. If you're serious about growing the dev team I'm a self employed engineer if you want to hit me up. I wrote only JS and GLSL (for GPU processing). I use three WASM libraries, which I did not make. Thanks for your offer, but I would like to hire someone I could work with in person.
I’ve been using photopea ever since your previous AMA a year ago. My question is: how often are do you AMA and how did it impact traffic to photopea? I did only three AMAs with about a year between them. The traffic grows by about 10 - 20%, which lasts for a day or two :)
How much time have you invested in creating this tool? Or what's your weekly time investment? I never measured it, but I think it is about the "regular" 40 hours a week.
Did you know most of what you needed before starting on Photopea or did you learn as you went along with adding new features? What unexpected difficulties presented themselves while working on Photopea? It is like I knew how to use a chisel, but I never carved a statue that big.
I learned many practical things (state-of-art algorithms etc), I used many things I learned at the university, which I thought I will never use :)
How do I start contributing to Photopea? What would you like to contribute with? You can help us find bugs or help beginners at our subreddit:
I hope this hasn't been asked, but why haven't you made a downloadable/fully offline version of your program yet? I know that as soon as you load the site you can use it offline, but there are times when people need to edit pictures without any internet connection at all. The online version makes it much easier to release new versions and do updates. I update Photopea about 30 times a week (with minor fixes).
Also, it feels a little uncofmortable to imagine, that someone is using a two year old version of Photopea and is cursing me because of some bug, which I already fixed, and I can not do anything about it at that moment :/
What technologies did you use to build this? I used Javascript and WebGL :)
It's really great that you're offering an alternative to Photoshop! I was wondering, what language or software did you use to write Photopea? I wrote my code in Javascript, but in my opinion, the language is not important at all.
The best language is the one you know how to use. Also, for me, it is important, that there is a way to execute my code fast, which is possible with Javascript in modern browsers.
[removed] Hi, you should not use Auto-translate, as we have a professional Swedish translation. Just press More - Language - Svenska. You can switch languages without restarting Photopea. should be in Swedish the first time you open it, if Swedish is set as your main language.
What's your End User Licensing Agreement looking like? How is this licensed? I like to know before end users start requesting such as im sure someone now wants to install this in a corporate environment... Photope works in your computer and it never sends any data outside your computer. It is just like buying the cheapest calculator and using it. You don't get a licence to use such calculator, the numbers that you enter into a calculator don't leave the calculator.
Our terms of service are here:
What's your opinion of the current state and direction of front-end development? I think I don't know much about it. I write my JS code in notepad and that code is precisely the code which runs in the browser of a user (without any modification). I did not change the way I develop webapps in the last six years.
the below is a reply to the above
Straight up Windows Notepad? Not notepad++ or Visual Studio Code or Atom or anything else??? I use Notepad++ :)
Are you planning in translating it? If so, I'd be glad to work on the italian version. Hi, it is already translated into 40 langauges, just press More - Language - Italiano :)
Hey Ivan, i'm very impressed by your work, but i'm an avid GIMP user. As you can imagine switching editors is always a hassle once you've got used to one. So can you give me some bullet points why it would be worth to switch from GIMP to Photopea? Thanks for the AMA! Hi, I think you should stay with GIMP, since you already know how to use it :) And if there is nothing specific you miss in GIMP, you probably don't need such features :)
Hey ivanhoe90 I noticed today that the pen tool behaves backward when clicking the second point and dragging. It's like the curve goes the opposite direction than anyone would expect. I almost filed a github issue on it but I just didn't have time. Is that a bug? Oh, I am very sorry, it is fixed now.
Hi, I wanted to know what's your story. That is your biography. And what did you study too get here? How did you get the idea for photopea? Hi, I gave a talk about it in France a year ago :)
DUDE! Your program saved me in the final semester of my Masters. I needed to upload images and I don't have a scanner so I used my phone and fixed the colour and tones in Photopea. Bless you for your hard work. I guess my question is what kind of cheese do you like? Thanks a lot! If you only knew how happy I am about such comments :)
I like all cheeses, as I think they are all amazing, each one in a different way.
I love this software and I use it daily, Every time I think to myself "I wonder if can also do" the answer has been yes. I love showing my co-workers this software while working in Citrix, it always blows people away that this works. Question: Any change of seeing a feature that doesn't automatically export local files to the download folder? I would love to select where I want to automatically save them or just save as > location (The google drive system already amazing though) It's that one minor thing that makes me end up with File(17).png Hi, thanks! The saving mechanism depends on the settings of the web browser. The browser usually handles the file saving the same way for all websites. So just change the browser settings - make the browser ask you about where you want the files to be saved (we can not do anything about it as a website).
Do you think Photopea can have more active users than Photoshop? And why? It is hard to tell. There are many features in Photoshop and other editors, which Photopea can not do. Even if Photopea has more active users, it does not mean it makes more money.
Well I'm 9 hours late and maybe it was already asked and answered, but if you feel like responding... do you have to recreate stuff like puppet warp or quick select from scratch? Like you have to go back and read some old white paper on the algorithm, and then sort of reinvent the wheel? Hi, that is correct, there are usually no free implementations of such algorithms, and if there are, they are not in Javascript or are not good enough :/
Actually, the Puppet Warp is based on a 2009 paper from Takeo Igarashi. I found a mistake in it and I wrote him an email, and it took me several emails to persuade him that he really made a mistake in his paper :) But many other authors refuse to look deep into papers they wrote a long time ago.
Who would you prefer Photopea being aquired by, and why? I don't know. I am not looking for an acquisition at the moment.
I'm getting into video editing. I'm a noob to photoshop and video editing. Are there any tools in this that can complement my video editing? I was thinking of being able to create custom graphics for the videos but what else are the capabilities? I dont know much about video editing, but you can use Photopea for photo editing. I think the more time you spend learning a tool, before actually using it, the less time you will spend in total (e.g. doing something by "trial and error" in 3 hours vs. learning it in 1 hour and doing it in 30 minutes, because you learned how to do it).
How were you able to acquire such a vast amount of knowledge about editors and programming? I studied programming at the university for many years. Learning how to use Photoshop or any other editor is easier, but still can take weeks or months.
the below is a reply to the above
I'm currently studying programming at uni too. Am I correct in assuming that the vast majority of the code for photopea is JavaScript since it's a web application? Yes, I wrote my programs in Javascript :) But I did not have any Javascript class ever in my life. I think the programming skills are not related to the knowledge of a specific programming language.
Could you comment on a bit? I don't quite understand why you're against using syntactic sugar. Especially let, const, and strict equality. I'm not claiming to be an expert at all, but most of these guidelines are in opposition to modern day JS practices. So I was just curious if you could elaborate on your decision making! I think it is up to you what you write. But I am used to writing as "simple" code as possible, and it just looks cleaner to me if you use "var" instead of let/const (and it has no impact on the speed).
[deleted] I think the knowledge is the most important. Also, it should be someone friendly, calm, rational, etc :D
Hey, I don't know if this has been asked before but since you have mentioned that Photopea can run offline after it's been loaded (meaning that there is no server backend), have you ever considered packing the app into a desktop app (e.g. with Electron or nw.js)? Hi, I think opening a website is faster and more comfortable than downloading and installing something. Also, the electron version would be hard to update (unless it is just an iframe with Photopea inside it).
Have you ever considered making Photopea into a mobile app? Hi, half of our users use Photopea on phones. It works quite well. If you look for "photopea" on Youtube, most of videos are recorded on phones.
My Reddit client doesn’t have a comment search feature, but have you considered bundling an electron version for people to download? Seems like a quick win, and even gets around ad blockers. Or if it’s a premium only offering, is just icing on the cake Hi, I was a bit lazy to maintain a separate version of Photopea. I don't see any advantages it would have over the basic version.

2020.09.21 00:02 Hamjamgam Building a new $1500 PC around the 3070. I will be basically only gaming, so I'm not sure if I should get a 9700k or a 3700x

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
I'm a top 500 hitscan main Overwatch player, I will mostly be playing first person shooters that benefit from high FPS and a high refresh rate monitor. I also dabble in 4x and paradox games like EU4, and I play some standard triple A games from time to time like Witcher 3.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
1500 USD
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
ASAP, I'm planning on using a 3070 as the gpu but I can use my old 1080 ti in it until I get my hands on one
**What, exactly, do you need included in the budget?
No peripherals, I already have a keyboard/mouse and a high refresh rate monitor, I just need a PC
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
US, AR, nope no microcenter
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Yeah, I'll probably overclock both of them if I can
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
I definitely want at least a 1 TB SSD as the main drive. I don't need extra drives right now
What type of network connectivity do you need? (Wired and/or WiFi) If WiFi is needed and you would like to find the fastest match for your wireless router, please list any specifics.
I'm wired.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Mid or full tower is preferred, I don't want any RGB I think it's annoying and gaudy
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
Extra info or particulars:
I'm reading that the 9700k is better for only gaming, but some people are saying that even for only gaming the 3700x is better, because of multithreading it's future proofed and the gaming difference isn't significant. It seems like the price difference between them is only about 10 bucks right now. So I'm confused. Thanks for the help. This is the build I came up with (replace the 2070 with a 3070):

2020.09.20 21:17 Chocolate_AlmondMilk typical boyfriend/not quite stepmom problems

I kind of want advice (mostly want to rant)
My(24F) boyfriend(jim) (27M) and I have been together for a year. It started rocky. He comes from an impoverished home. He had nothing to his name, no solid job, no goals, and a 1 year old kid (w/ a 1 night stand). I decided that I really liked his personality and wanted to try. I always wanted my SO & I to have similar values and have our first kid together. I was willing to compromise because he was fun to be around & made me smile/ feel special. He moved to my city to get away from his area & start again. His parents take care of his kid during his days; he pays the medical insurance & helps them out. He’s about to go through court w/ HCBM for custody/child support. I am about to graduate & work. I’ve been the breadwinner because I’m a (military) reservist and have gotten high paid internships (engineer). I paid fohalfed many dates after the first few and helped him out a lot. (Never paid for anything and he’s never asked for money but like clothes & gifts for him and the kid). I know this is looked down on/stupid but I helped him get a car and co-signed for it. (We’ve discussed the terms of if we break up, but I guess we should get it in writing...) it’s a used car & short lease. I just truly believe we could get through anything and I love him. I want to talk finances and goals more often (originally I was obsessed with planning and being better and discussing money and goals) but I’ve become a lot more relaxed/lenient. He kinda used to get annoyed.
So here are some issues I’ve been struggling with... He used to drink a lot before he met me, he frequently has sober weeks/months now but he still kinda hangs out with his friends that partake in that behavior too much & his mom is still very concerned which freaks me out. Also, a lot of them are negative & he sees it but they’re his friends & he loves them so much. While I’m at his parent’s house with the kid I feel like a stepmom. I find myself getting sad & a little jealous that the kid isn’t mine. He honestly insults me a lot (sometimes jokes, but his sense of humor is harsh), and it kinda hurts my feelings. I tell him to be nicer, he tries but also tells me he doesn’t appreciate that I shut down/don’t communicate more & that I don’t show him enough affection. To be fair, when we first got together I insulted him a lot. i had a superiority complex of being the breadwinner & etc. It’s balanced out a lot & I am a lot nicer - he is too but he’s sometimes rude/impatient & it stresses me out. Sometimes he’ll just tell me I am annoying or he’s tired of my behavior or profanities. The other night I was feeling sad about being a stepmom so I was going to work on some personal projects to get my mind off of things, I asked him for WiFi & he kinda freaked out on me so I walked out to sit in the car. He came out & said his stepdad didn’t pay for the WiFi so no internet, I told him that’s fine but I wanted to be alone & didn’t wanna talk about it. He may have thought it was the WiFi but I just didnt wanna talk about it because i’ve brought it up the stepmom thing few times, first he said it was annoying but then he said he understood & I felt validated. But Idk where the sudden sadness came from (time of the month 🙄) so I just thought I needed a few hours to cope. Later he told me I was acting like a victim & he did nothing to me. which I agreed & said i wasn’t mad at him. i know he did nothing to me but i just needed to be sad for a little bit. i went to the living room to try to fall asleep on the couch & he came in (it was dark so i got scared and screamed) and he yelled at me for it because he didn’t want me waking the baby and told me i needed to lay in bed with him. i went in there to lay with him but i couldnt stop crying and he told me he no longer wanted to live with me because i ruined this weekend. i became furious, went to the bathroom & cried & just wanted to leave. i was so angry and sad. i tried to get a hotel but he basically told me not to so i just laid there and cried myself to sleep.
Also, with his kid, he’ll turn on the TV instead of playing or while feeding him, or be mad that he’s not going to sleep exactly when he wants him to. I LOVE kids, so I think it’s such a blessing to have him and I want to play with him to help him get tired or do things without the tv on but jim will say like “he’s my kid, he can multitask” or “don’t encourage him, he needs to go to sleep” even tho all he’s doing is sitting on the couch telling him to sleep while watching tv. his mom tells him he’s just a baby so he needs to have more patience but SO is very dismissive about everyone’s input unless it’s something he wants/needs.
the next few days he told me he loved me & i just need to show him affection. he said he needs it but i still feel a bit broken. i love him a lot but i feel very conflicted and just want a little support.
today, we got into a fight. i have been texting an internet friend of mine (we game together) that i’ve never met. i tell him all my relationship problems and confide in him a lot. today jim asked to go through my phone and i told him its a bad idea and he hardly lets me touch his phone but i always let him use mine so it was weird & i said i was a bit uncomfortable. he went through our messages. my friend is flirty so i understand how jim feels but i always shut it down/remind him i have a boyfriend and etc. in the past jim has told me he didn’t particularly want to hear about my emotions and not to tell him everything i feel about him. with covid going on seeing a therapist feels eh. he’s made jokes about like not talking and sucking his dick or w/e so i just assumed he was one of the guys that was ok with me just talking to other people as long as i satisfied him and didn’t physically cheat which is ok with me. well, jim says im emotionally cheating and i had a huge breakdown about it and packed all my stuff at MIL house. he says i caused a scene and i have to pretend everything is ok, but i don’t want to. idk how to feel about our relationship rn.
TL;DR: Boyfriend was broke, I kinda “built him up”, he has a hcbm, i feel like a stepparent and it hurts my feelings, he also says mean things to me sometimes but demands love and says he doesnt like it when im sad/im not allowed to be sad unless something bad is done to me. i also emotionally cheated a bit. (nothing sexual, just ranted about my feelings/our relationship to a male friend & he flirted a bit) i don’t want to leave him. any advice?

2020.09.20 20:26 ThrowRA-justneedhelp Broke up with LDR gf, moved into house with friend who is close to ex. Experiencing irrational jealously and don’t know how to get over it.

Sorry in advance for the long post. I’m not expecting many or even any replies, this is mostly just to get my thoughts out there with the hope of some insightful perspectives being an added bonus.
I was in a long-distance relationship with Y that ended just over 2 months ago. We made it official in August 2019 and broke up around the start of July 2020, but we were talking in some form every single day without fail from June 2019. I started university in September 2019 as a mature student (24 at the time), which was something we were anxious might change our dynamic, since my day-to-day life would be considerably different whilst hers would be the same. As far as I’m aware, things didn’t change negatively. I became friends with a small subset of my flatmates (who I’ll call X and Z) and didn’t do much socially outside of that bubble. All the time we had known each other before I started university, I spent most of my evenings at home, so I didn’t want to change that suddenly by going out drinking regularly, partying etc.
I told my friends about Y who were very supportive, and wanted to get her involved in the group. X, Y and Z had an online game in common which they regularly played, which I wasn’t overly into. The 3 of them would sometimes be in a group call playing the game together, which I quite liked since I was at first worried about talking about Y because of the perceived stigma of online relationships, so it was nice to see them involve her in the group.
The academic year went by fine, and everything to my knowledge was good. Me and Y went halves on a plane ticket for me to come and see her, which we were intensely looking forward to. Then obviously CV19 came and took a great big dump on our plans, but I think we bounced back from it – flights weren’t going to be grounded forever, plus we were able to keep the ticket open and rebook for free at a later date.
I had to leave university due to CV19 in April, so I was back at my hometown until a couple of weeks ago. At this point I should mention that our time difference and other factors meant we could only really talk freely around 7-8 PM onwards her time, which meant 12-1 AM for me. We would still talk earlier during the day, but it was often sporadic as she often wouldn’t be able to stay on the phone for long, which I understood. We would text throughout the day, though, but at night was when we could talk for hours on end.
During this time, I had to arrange accommodation for this upcoming year at university and entered into a contract with a house with X and two other people who I didn’t live with before. One night in June I think, when me and Y would normally be talking, she told me she was going to play her game with X and wouldn’t be that long, as X wanted to help her with something in particular with it. After about an hour I messaged her something along the lines of asking how it was going, hoping she would realise I was waiting to talk to her. She said she was nearly finished, so I left it at that. Then I noticed that she and X were online on another platform, so deduced that they must have been voice calling together at the same time. I also checked the game they were playing and saw that he wasn’t helping her with the thing she mentioned, so from my perspective they were just chatting socially and casually playing their game.
I don’t know why that affected me so much, as at the end of the day it’s not unusual to be talking whilst playing a game together, but up to that point I had no idea that they had been in 1-1 voice calls together. She eventually stopped playing and called me around 3 AM and was very taken aback that I was upset. She did apologise for taking so long after I explained how I felt, but I’m not sure if she truly saw where I was coming from. She was upset at me for snooping and checking up on them, which I understood so I apologised. She also said if I wanted her to stop talking to X to tell her and she would, but I didn’t want to appear childish, despite that being how I really felt and what I would have preferred.
I tend to jump to worst case conclusions, so my irrational mind started wondering how close they really were. She told me when they spoke it was pretty much exclusively about the game and jokingly trading insults back and forth. I outwardly accepted this, but it still continued to fuck with me, which must have manifested itself in the relationship as we would frequently have little rows about stupid stuff then make up. I guess it was one too many for Y, as I woke up to a message from her breaking up with me.
I was upset that it was over text instead of a phone call, as I felt I deserved that much at least. We spoke that same day and mutually agreed that we would try harder to communicate and do more fun things together, which lasted about a week or so before we started slipping back into how things were before. I decided to break things off for a few reasons: I think my jealously was souring things, and our free time in the evenings was only going to get more sparse when I started my next year at university, and she was intending to start a full-time apprenticeship, meaning our contact throughout the day would be virtually non-existent. I also thought that the foundations of the relationship were damaged from our brief break-up; it felt like the elephant in the room that wouldn’t leave.
It’s been rough since. This is my first break-up, and after talking to a friend and reading posts online I decided to go No Contact, which upset Y as I previously expressed that I still cared about her and would be her friend. I reached out a few times, but found it upset me much more than not talking, since the level of intimacy we shared was no longer there. She has also reached out, but then said she wouldn’t anymore but would be there when I’ve healed. I don’t understand how she doesn’t feel the same way about wanting to maintain distance, but I guess people are just made differently as she said she doesn’t heal that way. I feel guilty that my coping mechanism is the one we’re using. I truly care for her and only want good things for her, she’s an amazing person that’s been through some shit that she doesn’t deserve.
I was talking to X afterwards, and the topic of the breakup inevitably came up. He asked me if I wanted him to stop speaking to Y, but I was hesitant as it felt unnecessarily cruel. I didn’t ask him to, but he voluntarily said that he would distance himself. He didn’t, and if anything, they got closer, playing more games and connecting on different platforms. I felt betrayed and upset that he said one thing and did the complete opposite. I felt a bit of resentment towards him due to this, but it started to fade eventually.
I had been healing and getting better over the summer, but now things have to shit again for me mentally. I have recently moved into the house near the university with X, and I am seeing fresh reminders of their relationship. The house didn’t have Wi-Fi for a while, and after it was installed we played on his Xbox like we had been doing prior, but this time since it was now online old messages came through, in particular one from Y. X immediately closed the screen and neither of us said anything, and it felt like someone had thrown a bucket of ice cold water over me. I also realised that since Y doesn’t have an Xbox, the only game she could have played cross-platform was the one that she and I had played together, and as lame as it sounds it has a lot of sentiment for me and feels special, and that he was taking my place.
I made up an excuse to go back to my room soon after and withdrew for the next couple of days, speaking less to X. A night or so later I heard X talking downstairs in his room (his room is directly beneath mine) and saw that they were both playing their game together, so I knew they must be talking to each other.
X likes to show me memes on his phone, and one time a Snapchat message came through from somebody with a name I didn’t recognise, so obviously I didn’t think twice about it. A couple of days after that, he was showing me something he was sending to a friend on Snapchat, and I immediately recognised Y’s Bitmoji (avatar) with that name from before assigned to it, which I now know is a jokey name that he set hers to. I think he does this with most of his contacts, so I don’t feel he did it to explicitly hide her from me.
This made me withdraw even more, so obviously X knew something was wrong. I passed it off as being anxious about my upcoming exam results. When I got the results and they were fine, I remained in that mood, so he definitely knew something was wrong and I decided to explain why I felt the way I did.
I explained that I wasn’t angry at him and he deserved to know why I was being so distant, and that seeing what I saw put me back in the headspace I had spent so long trying to get out of. I told him that it would be wrong of me to tell him he can’t be friends with Y just because I am no longer in a relationship with her, and that I should be happy that they both have a friendship, but at the same time I can’t help feel the way I felt. He told me he understands how I feel, and that he feels bad, citing a breakup our mutual friend is currently going through and how he wouldn’t feel right being close with our mutual friend’s ex. He told me (again at his own volition) that he will lower contact with Y for the sake of our friendship and the fact that we’re living together. He also told me that they don’t talk as much anymore anyway.
The 3 days following have been better, and things have felt almost back to normal. I can’t help but question his resolve to lower contact with her, especially how he said he would after the initial breakup. Earlier today I saw him on Snapchat whilst he was sat next to me, and saw her on his contacts page, and noticed that there was a red heart next to her name. If you’re not familiar with Snapchat, this means that you and that contact have been best friends on there for at least 2 weeks, i.e. sent each other the most snaps out of all your contacts. I don’t know if the icon was there before or not, and I’m trying to not read into it so much, but I can’t help but wonder. At this point whenever I see him on his phone, I’m imagining him talking to her, which feels awful.
I fully recognise that this is a me problem, but I just don’t know how to get over it. I’m wondering if I should move out, but that seems so drastic, and would be a nightmare logistically as I would need someone to take my place in the house and find somewhere new to live at the same time. I’m hoping that when the academic year starts fully next week I will be sufficiently distracted, and not dwell on this too much. I’m also aware that there is a large element of unconscious bias at play here, if Y was to explain everything from her perspective it would undoubtedly be quite different, I’m far from perfect.
I’ve struggled with self-harm in the past and have stupidly found myself relapsing. I can safely say it’s not a cry for attention, it’s in a place no-one would see or question. Neither X nor Y know about this, it just helps alleviate the negative feelings, albeit briefly. Thanks if you’ve made it this far, I didn’t expect it to be as a long as it is. I just started typing and kept going, even the act of just putting this down has been slightly cathartic.
TL;DR – Me and my GF broke up over the summer, I’m now living with my friend who I think is still close to her. Don’t know how to cope.

2020.09.20 20:13 snowstar789 Being Open About My Sexual Orientation in My Dream

Hi all! INFP/30s/female/bisexual here
Real life context: I'm a bisexual female and it's something I'm still struggling with after coming out. I've never dated a girl before, only guys and it seems a few months ago my identity was still bothering me. I'm a very shy, reserved and private person so I've been very selective with who I've told and a few months ago I realized that I still suffer from a sense of internalized homophobia - I had wondered how to deal with this. After searching online, people just said that I need to get to know more LGBT people.
I've always felt kind of conflicted that if I'm with a guy, I can just fit into society's roles and maybe people wouldn't know or find out, but if I were with a girl, I'd be forced to be visible. And I felt kind of guilty that I could choose whereas others couldn't. I thought about how different my life would be if I took one path vs. another. And so far I've kind of resisted dating girls even though my biggest crush in college was a girl and I was willing to date her if she was open to it. I guess that I've gotten older, I've felt more pressure to get married with a man and have kids (I still want to get married and have kids, but feel more pressure to be with a guy). I've also avoided talking about my dilemmas with anyone because others can't relate or I don't feel safe enough to but I think time has come where my internal sense of being is like, "you need to confront this problem you've been hiding and pushing off". I also feel like not being open and authentic is hindering my personal development and goals to be more authentic and free with myself and those around me and not lie by omission.
A few days ago, I had dinner with a coworker friend (who doesn't know I'm bi), and I told her about my best guy friend and she asks if we're dating. I say no, and then she starts to talk about guys she's been seeing and what types of guys she likes. Then she turns to me and asks what type of guys I like. Internally, I pause for a moment and I feel immediately uncomfortable because I know what I'm about to do is lie and not talk about girls at all. So I tell her the type of guys I like and I was wondering if I should bring up girls at all. I decided not to do so, and then when I went home, I thought, should I have? Would it have opened up more conversations that would have been helpful to me?
Last night I was watching the YouTube channel, "BisexualRealTalk" on a video where the host talks about coming out vs. being visible. Basically he said that coming out is where you choose a time and place to reveal to someone sensitive information while being visible, it's showing visibly on your clothing, hairstyle or something else that you are LGBT. So he has this shirt that says "famously bisexual" and he tried an experiment where he went in public to see what the reaction would be like and he got really good reactions and it made him feel good about himself and supported. If you're curious you can watch it here:
So I guess I was wondering about that, like what if I did something like that. And what do you know, it shows up in my dream!
My Dream: I dreamed I was sitting at a table with 5 other Asian girls. One of them said "I'm in WiTT" [WiTT is the name of the local queer women's group], then after she said that I said, "Me too", then a third girl also said "me too". For some reason the dream seemed to be hinting at the fact that I should hide myself less and that the first girl saying that she was part of WiTT was like some initiator who brought up the topic and if someone else brought up the topic, I felt okay admitting it too. It's like you don't want to admit something unless someone else goes first. What I also noticed is because I had the bravery to say I was in it too, another girl also admitted it too. It was like my willingness to be open was able to help someone else. I think the presence of all asian girls (I'm asian too) might signify the fact that I don't know very many LGBT asians and being open about LGBT in the asian community is difficult. But the fact that there were at least 3 other asian girls who weren't LB (I presumed) shows that I and others were comfortable enough to talk about it openly.
I think that's why in my dream, I dreamed what I dreamed because it was like an indication that I was starting to be willing to engage in the dragon of chaos that ensues when you become visible to others. My willingness to be open to the idea of taking a risk and see if being open can result in more authentic relationships with other people.
Then later in the dream, I saw Irene (an asian girl I knew in real life that had married a girl) and I approached her to ask her how she dealt with her LB identity. I don't remember what she responded, but it seemed that my willingness to approach her, someone who was an acquaintance, seemed to indicate that I was willing to approach and touch the edge of chaos, the fear of the unknown and what it might reflect about myself.
I've wondering what all this meant from a Jungian perspective, since he talks about the anima/animus and how we project it onto the person we are attracted to romantically. But what does that mean for bisexual people? Do we have both an anima and animus? What does the dream mean for me? Does it mean that in order for me to develop myself, I need to push myself out into the world more? I think hiding it has been holding me back in a way because if I'm hiding, then I can't feel "whole" and there is a psychological part of me that feels like I'm being deceitful to myself and the people around me which results in this feeling of discomfort and incongruence I think. I wonder if it means if I were more open about it, I could share my potential and my treasures with the world and help others.
Thoughts? Can anyone relate? Has anyone had a similar dream?

2020.09.20 18:37 deepburgundy Have I been conned by the estate agents?

I moved into an apartment in Hull yesterday, and feel like I've been conned. Please bear with the chronological details of what happened:
I needed to move to Hull for work and started looking at apartments on Rightmove and Zoopla. I found a decent flat and contacted the letting agency to start the application. The important thing to note is that the flats were advertised as being furnished (which, in addition to the basic kitchen white goods, included a bed, wardrobe, two-seater sofa, coffee table, a small dining table, and a bunch of dining chairs).
The letting agency sent me videos of two flats (because I opted for a virtual viewing as I couldn't go to Hull for a day-trip), from which I picked one. Important detail: both of these flats (in the videos) were furnished. The same stuff as I've mentioned before. Let's say, out of Flat A and Flat B, I picked Flat A.
The next email from the agents explained to me that Flat A is not available, but Flat C, which is somewhat similar, is still available. I watch a video of Flat C (also furnished), and proceed with the application by paying the holding deposit.
When the referencing agency contacts me in around a week's time, I notice that the application is for Flat D (a completely different flat that I hadn't seen before). I email the referencing agency to clarify that it's for Flat C, but they do not respond to my clarification. The application moves forward, and I pass the checks.
I arrange a moving-in date and the contract is ready to sign. Before signing the contract, I phone the estate agency and complain that my flat has changed from Flat C to Flat D. The person on the phone says they'll call me back with an explanation. The call doesn't happen.
I sign the contract (which doesn't include a break-clause), because all the flats are similar in their fittings and furnishings, and there are only slight design differences. I take the chance because I needed to move ASAP.
I come to Hull, go to the apartment, and find out that Flat D is unfurnished. There is no furniture, and it is comparatively smaller than all the apartments I was shown. I moved in on a Saturday, so I couldn't call the estate agency. Instead, I wrote a long email explaining in detail what had happened and sent it to the agents that dealt with my application and the parent company. I will also call them tomorrow (Monday) and demand a furnished flat.
I can't unpack because there is no wardrobe, and I have spent last night sleeping on the floor. I work full-time and would have to work 8-5 sitting on the floor. I feel like I have been conned into this situation. I need advice.
[update 1]
I've started talking to some of the other residents in the building, and everyone's facing some problem or the other.
Person 1: When she came for the viewing last month, the estate agents told her that the lift in the building will be functional in August. She has trouble climbing stairs, and it was one of the factors that pushed her to rent in this building. The lifts are still not functional, and she's had trouble reaching the agency in order to complain. She lives on the third floor and is already thinking of leaving the contract.
Person 2: Moved in last week and found out that his flat was dirty. There were stains and a lot of paint splashes on the carpet. He couldn't get into his flat because the code he was given was wrong. He had to break into his own apartment, and looking at the state of the flat, he called the estate agents to say that he wants to give notice and leave the contract. The estate agent he spoke to was rude to him and simply disregarded any complaints: raising his voice and saying that you're acting immature.
None of us has been given the keys to our post boxes, and we're all trying to slide out our posts. None of us was told what the bins situation is, where they are, or how to access them. We're all kind of asking each other and figuring out things. One resident knew the WiFi password, one knows where the bins are, one knows the codes to access the bins area.
The bad thing is: it's not just my case, everyone is feeling cheated. The good thing is: there's room for collective action.
[update 2]
I called the estate agents first thing this morning, and they sounded very shocked that this had happened. Their response was the typical "Let us look into this matter, and we will get back to you." They also said that all the flats are supposed to be furnished and this shouldn't have happened.
After a few hours of chasing them up and wanting updates on the case, they were still being very unresponsive. My feeling was that they're just buying time or whatever, and hoping that I'll give up. Eventually, in the afternoon, I told them that I'm aware that what's happened is a breach of professional diligence and I'm protected against this in law. I will be making a legal complaint with the ombudsman because you've delayed giving me something that was my legal right.
Things got a little heated up, but I finally received a very apologetic call around 3 p.m. They offered to move me into a fully-furnished flat, which is considerably bigger than the small flat I was stuck in. I'm now typing this from the new flat.
Basically, their explanation was that flat D was not ready to be rented and someone had overlooked that during my application. I should've never moved into the flat because the inventory for the flat wasn't even conducted as yet because there was no furniture. Something like that.
But, I'm happy with how things have turned out in the end.
Thank you everyone for their help. Lesson learnt.

2020.09.20 00:00 Lone_Digger123 Never built a PC before. Aiming for NZD$1500-$2400

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
I will be playing a variety of games (from minecraft to AC Origins). I want to get into AAA games and will get MS flight simulator but not immediately (so you don't have to have this game in your thoughts when building).
I will also be studying in the next 3 years so I will want it to be able to handle university and be able to run software like GIS (since I'm interested in it and might download some of their apps to play around with).
My aim will be 1440p 144hz gaming. More importance is placed on constant 144hz gaming. Basically I don't want to be playing games and be lagging everywhere and not even get a constant 60fps like on my 6 year old laptop.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
I'm from NZ so this will preferably require parts available in NZ and in NZD.
NZD$1500-$2400. Absolute absolute limit is NZD$2600. $600-$650 tops extra for a monitor.
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
I will buy the parts around black friday and/or Christmas time due to the specials so things will be cheaper.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
This is my first PC build ever and the only thing I will be reusing is a mouse.
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
I live in NZ. I will be buying the parts from pbtech. I don't think I have access to a microcenter.
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
I will be re-using a wired mouse. Everything else I will need to buy.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
I will not be over-clocking in the near future (1-2 years) however if I become really interested in PC's I might think of overclocking in the future.
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
I would prefer SSD and no HDD, I know it sounds cliche but I want to future proof somewhat, so if you need to fork $100 more on something like a x570 compared to a B550 even if I don't need a x570 immediately, that is ok. Same goes with the power supply. Going for a higher watt gold+ power supply to get prepared for the future is ok with me if its $50-120 more.
What type of network connectivity do you need? (Wired and/or WiFi) If WiFi is needed and you would like to find the fastest match for your wireless router, please list any specifics.
This question kinda confuses me. If you are talking about if I need a WIFI motherboard then yes, I will need a wifi motherboard. Hopefully this helps or answers the question lol.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
I want quality over lights. I will try use as little RGB as possible (however if something is good - I'll use the Phantek 400a as an example) but has RGB, you can still recommend it but I'll just turn the RGB off
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
My friend has a copy of windows so no
Extra info or particulars:
CPU - Ryzen 3600 ($309)
GPU - Sapphire Pulse 5700xt ($768)
Motherboard - MSI x570 tomahawk WIFI ($438)
RAM - G SKILL Trident Z Neo 16GB 3600MHz ($179)
SSD (for windows) - ADATA SX8200 Pro NVMe 512GB ($168)
SSD (everything else?) - Crucial MX500 1TB ($208)
Power supply - Corsair RMx 750W 80+ Gold Full Modular (259)
Case - Phanteks P400a ($159)
Cooler - Cooler Master Hyper 212 fan ($74)
Noctua NH D15 ($199)
Monitor - 1440p option if on a good sale: LG 27GL850-B (sadly its $900 right now). Current option: AOC 24G2 ($348)
I am undecided on the keyboard. I was gonna go for a logitech or corsair keyboard but then after checking out polls on mechanicalkeyboards it turns out they suck so yeah...
Thank you for any help you give me, whether that be reviewing my build or giving me another build based on my recommendations.

2020.09.19 22:44 redroguetech Mega "getting started" thread

[Updated repost from here and here]
See my mega review post. It's getting time for me to update it, but still worth looking through.
First off, I wanna just get out of the way that there are as many approaches to doing "smart home" as there are people doing it... So I welcome comments! The idea is to create a single post/thread I (or anyone else) can just link for people asking the basic question of "where do I start", and... I started where I started, not where everyone else started :-)
[What do you want ?]
My first suggestion to all those starting out or barely in.... At a minimum, consider EVERYTHING you might want to do. Let your imagination run wild. If you can think it, there's a good chance someone else has done it - and if not, you can be the first. I think the biggest and most common mistake people make when starting out - for me as well - is a lack of imagination. There's nothing wrong starting out with "I just want to do X" (especially if you mean it) but it's also a good way to get boxed in. I recommend everyone, including automation veterans, write out all your dream projects and goals... actually write them down. Write out what and how many devices (lights, sensors, etc.) it will take. Then, put in ball park prices. If you're really just starting out, you might need to pencil in just wild guesses. That's fine. Doesn't need to be exact, and prices change (and can vary wildly by brand/model). The idea is to just have a rough estimate of what's feasible and what isn't... What's worth it and what isn't... What to do sooner and what to put off.
[What do you already have?]
If you're serious about home automation... Make a detailed floor plan of your house. A floor-plan is pretty useful in general, but especially useful for setting up and maintaining a smart home. Mark where all the outlets, switches, and light fixtures are at, and go through the house mapping circuit breakers just the one time. As smart devices are installed, notate on the floor plan which devices are smart, their capabilities (ie if lights are color), what protocol they use (ZigBee, Z-Wave, or WiFi), what circuit breaker they're on and/or what type of battery they use (and you can note last battery installation date). (I use Sweet Home 3D - free, pretty powerful, and pretty easy.)
Obviously, what you already have for automation devices should be taken into account in any smart home plan. However, in general don't let that influence you too much. Every home automation veteran has box(s) full of old stuff. Plan carefully to minimize waste, but home automation is constantly evolving, so be willing to occasionally rethink your approach. If you do switch to a different platform/protocol/etc, do it slowly. Don't try to transition everything at once. At the same time, I personally feel it's important to maintain consistency throughout a house. Having a mish-mash of different products and designs can hinder every-day living.
[What can you do?]
See below for a quick list of the most common device types. Following that is a list of automation ideas. Use these to assist in making the list. Although they are perhaps a bit overwhelmingly long, it's more to prompt you to think about what you want. Come up with your own dream list! (Then share it.)
Before skipping to those, there's a two things you need to decide early on. (Or skip, but come back.) Honestly, I'm split on which is more important. They may very well be equally important.
[Pause for dramatic cliff-hanger....]
[How are you going to control everything?]
The first is the "automation controller". You know about Google Home and Alexa - maybe know about IFTTT - and you're wondering if you really need a separate controller. If you're going to do more than couple of simple things... you're going to want a controller. It's just that simple.
There's quite a few out there (literally thousands), from those that barely qualify as an automation controller (like Google Home), to easy to use but limited SmartThings, to DIY systems like HomeAssistant. It depends in large part on end goals and user preference (and mon-ay!). Few people have extensively used all of the major ones, so take all suggestions - including mine - with a grain of salt, unless they can directly compare and contrast from experience. So, you're on your own. For what it's worth, my quick-pick short list would be either Hubitat or Home Assistant, but it really does depend on your tech level, budget, goals, and other preferences. Personally, I use a Hubitat Elevation, and I love it.
Note: My understanding is that SmartThings is still the go-to platform for beginners. However, it's limited, and does not have a stable user experience or functionality. I have long since stopped using SmartThings, so only passingly familiar with recent developments, but my opinion continues to be to avoid it unless you willing to buy it as a learning tool.
[How are you going to control everything??]
The second major decision is how you want to control the lighting. Sounds simple, but it's really not. It really deserves a mega-thread of it's own. At least for me, it was a choice that was far more difficult, far more costly, and far harder to reverse than which controller to get (though I'm proud to say I'm sure I did make the right choice for my goals). There's smart switches,1 smart bulbs, smart switches with smart bulbs, control/touch screen panels, remote controls, and voice. And, each one can have varying features and styling. Also consider how they will work together, not just on the technical side (which is addressed by picking an automation controller), but in actual practical use. Before picking products, actually imagine using them... For instance, would you want a glossy touch-screen light dimmer next to a click-button fan controller? Rather than immediately falling in love with a new glitter product, picture yourself using it to turn the lights on and off or whatever on a daily basis while half-asleep in the dark, or in a rush out the door.
Many people answer "I'll just use voice". Wrong answer. Just take my word for it. Voice is an add-on feature; not a replacement for physical controls. I have at least 10 Google Homes scattered throughout the house, and will be expanding on that - so it's not that they aren't useful, but yelling "Hey Google, turn on kitchen light one" ("I've turned on kitchen light two" -- "I SAID ONE!!") at 3am just doesn't actually work. As much as I and hopefully you love the idea of home automation, old dumb light switches really are about as good you can get for simple, practical, intuitive use.
My ultimate answer is that... I don't want to control lights! I want them to control themselves - hence being home automation. Unfortunately, it's just not achievable. 1) Motion sensors can be finicky and you'll want a backup, 2) Motion sensors aren't appropriate for all circumstances, and 3) Motion sensors throughout the entire house (and setting up the automation logic) is a large undertaking, and will take much time, effort and expense. I give a pro/con of some of the basic methods on my "review thread", but... First, ask YOURSELF questions. Where will the switches be? What will they do? What are you going to do with the existing switches? Will you want switches where there aren't any built-in? Will they work for the entire family? Consider what you'll gain over "dumb" switches, and what you'll lose. Then do research and ask everyone else how to get there.
[What protocol are you going to use?]
One other thing that's suggested be decided early on is protocol. If you've done any research at all or spent anytime in the forums, you'll see ZigBee and Z-Wave mentioned a lot. First, WiFi is conspicuously absent in that sentence. Despite the massive number of "smart" products on the market that use WiFi, it's not a good base protocol to use. Buying WiFi products is a great place to start out. There are a lot of great WiFi products, and they don't generally require any "hub", allowing you to just jump in without out this bothersome planning and research, and using WiFi products isn't a death sentence for home automation setups. But there are many - too many - drawbacks from security issues to signal interference, so be careful not to get sucked too far into WiFi. Feel free to postpone making these really hard choices by buying a couple WiFi devices, but don't ignore them just because WiFi seems to work well to start with. Some of the pro/cons for WiFi like security issues just make WiFi less of bargain, but many of the issues grow exponentially with the number of WiFi devices you have.
As to Zigbee or Z-Wave - I started out with a mix, and have settled on one based on stability of my personal setup - not naming which is giving me troubles, because it's probably solvable, I'm just too lazy to bother. Although there are differences between the two - some of which may be quite important to smart-home veterans - it typically doesn't matter which is used, and there's certainly not one that's "better" for beginners. Pretty much every product type can be found in either, but specific brands usually do one or the other, so I'd recommend getting a controller that supports both, learn as you go, and use what works best.
Just as a bit of a primer, ZigBee and Z-Wave are both what are known as "mesh networks". You know about "mesh WiFi". It's like that, but completely different. In a true mesh network, each device can act as a repeater for other devices, which isn't true for WiFi. So each device that is a repeater strengthens and extends the network, and can become more efficient with routing. Not all will be repeaters, particularly battery powered devices. Hue and other ZigBee bulbs won't either, because they're technically a substandard (Zigbee Light Link rather than Zigbee Home Automation). However, bulbs in general are reportedly a mixed bag, and not being a repeater can be better than being a bad repeater.
[Do you really need a "hub"?]
A note on hubs. Many people (including myself) started out with "But I don't wanna hub!" (or "But I don't wannanother hub!") Get over it. Although there's something to be said for simplicity, don't get hung up on whether something requires a hub! They don't build them just to make money... well, I mean, they do, but no one would buy them if they didn't have value. Personally, I actively use six hubs (Hubitat Elevation, Lutron Caseta, Hue, Pi 3B+, Arlo, and Fing) with plans for another, and have yet more that I've managed to phase out. That's not to say those hubs are right for everyone (again, see my review thread), and I'm definitely not saying to buy any hub without researching what features it adds, but do not cut your nose off to spite your face by avoiding product lines just because there's a hub!
[Where are you going to use it?]
(At home! It's home automation! Duh!!)
Presence... It's a huge issue for home automation. Maybe even the most important issue. So, just going to define a few concepts for your consideration.
The Holy Grail of a smart home is being able to customize the environment to suit the specific people in the room/area, and specifically to suit their activity. For instance, you may want different lighting or sound settings if you are watching tv rather than your child, or have different things occur if your child is leaving the house rather than when you arrive, etc., etc. The only way to do that in a practical way within a home environment is through facial recognition cameras. Although it's technically feasible, at this time it's simply not practical for the vast majority of home owners. But there are ways to get pretty close.
There's geopresense (aka "geofencing"). You know what it is, but there's a lot more to it when applied inside a house. It can be used to determine, within some margin of error, if you're at home, but useless in saying which part of the home. And it can only track other people if they're willing to install an app (and have their phone with them). It can also be used for things like having left work, leaving an area (eg having home automation just know that you've gone on vacation, visiting your family/side b***h, etc.).
To determine if someone actually entered the house, or entered a specific room, you can use contact sensors, which indicates a door or window has been opened or closed. Obviously, this can't say who it was, or even if they're entering or exiting. They also require opening doors, which obviously often doesn't apply inside.
Motion detectors... well, you know what they do. There are some issues with them, such as sensitivity, polling rate, and false alarms (the vast majority of sensors see infrared changes, so heat sources will tend to throw them off). Still, they make for good lighting controls and such.
A few other "presence" types... There are pressure plates, vibration sensors, and beam sensors. Some of these are pretty uncommon, but if you're not adverse to DIY, they could be handy. For instance, a pressure sensor could tell if your car is parked, and a beam sensor can tell if the car has arrived. That is, a pressure plate can tell the difference between a car and a person, but is specific to only one specific location. A beam sensor can see between any two points, but can't tell the difference between a car and your grandmother's corpse.
Another option is BlueTooth. Using keychain fobs, specific people can be identified, and hypothetically located within a small-ish area, but still not good enough to pin-point a room/area. When combined with motion sensors, if people aren't in groups, you could get pretty close, for instance if only one person is in one part of the house, and a motion sensor is triggered for a specific room in that area, the system can know who is in what room.
Carefully combining these together - typically GPS, contact sensors, and/or motion sensors - you can get a good idea of where people are in a house. The closer you can get to the Holy Grail of knowing where people are, who they are, and what they are doing, the more automation can be fined-tuned to customize a house for them. Here's a post showing what creativity, planning, time, and pure stubbornness can accomplish.
[How are you going to stop using it?]
Shit happens. Plan for it. Example one... My kid's dog likes to chew on my MagicCube and Pico remotes, which only control lights so no big deal, but if turning on a light while no one was home acted as a security alarm trigger, it'd be a big problem. Example two... a minor bug in my automation code prevented lights from turning on or off - at all - and I couldn't stop right then to fix it. But I had an override in place. It's too easy to make a mistake, like having lights come on at 2am instead of 2pm, so put in overrides. Have options to disable routines. And use multi-point authentication systems for critical systems like alarms and locks. A couple mistakes can tank the SAF (Spouse Approval Factor), if not actually put you in physical danger.
Now on to the lists, but first a warning. Don't let them overwhelm you. The options with smart homes is long, but only the biggest dicks most dedicated [sorry, just jealous] do more than maybe a double handful of them.
  • Smart lighting / smart switches
  • Buttons
  • Smart outlets (including high-Amp/appliance outlets)
  • Power monitors (built into many, but not all, smart outlets)
  • LED strip/accent lighting (strictly speaking, not necessarily "smart", but is way better with smartness)
  • Touch panel screen(s)
  • Voice control (Alexa, Google Home and/or Bixby)
  • Motion sensors
  • Tilt sensors (garage door, tactile buttons)
  • Accelerometevibration sensor (door sensors, washedryer, theft deterrence, tactile buttons)
  • Distance sensors (don't know of any detail product) (credit to gergoio
  • Water leak sensors (leak alerts, plant care)
  • Temp sensors (for AC zone control, house fan, stove monitor, refrigerator monitor)
  • Humidity sensors (bathroom vent fans, basement monitor)
  • Doowindow contact and/or magnetometer sensors (good for closet lighting, home security and controlling HVAC)
(Note: There are multi-purpose sensors that combine various of the above into one device)
  • Ilaser beam sensors (don't know of any retail product, aside from wired garage door sensors)
  • Pressure sensors (don't know of any retail product)
  • Smart locks
  • Smart thermostat
  • Smart vents
  • Security cameras
  • Blinds/curtains
  • Smoke/Carbon Monoxide alarms (with remote alerts)
  • Sprinkleirrigation/s controls (eg valves, solenoids, pumps, etc.)
  • Pool automation (Note: There's actually not much on the market for pools that aren't very pricey)
  • Robot vacuums
  • Pet/child toys (just being thorough.... :-)
Not a device in the same way as those above, but there are also hubs that mimic remote controls for ceiling fans, tvs, window ACs, gas fireplaces, etc.
Automation ideas....
Note: The true wonder and power of home automation is being able to join together multiple triggers with multiple events for multiple devices, such as creating whole-house scenes, combining lighting, alerts, tv/movie player, fireplace, water features, etc., etc. It's impossible to list every combination, but... please share what you've done :-)
These are sorted roughly by category. The leading number in brackets is my opinion/guess on general difficulty (scale of 10, with 10 hardest), but that could drastically vary by specifics of the goal, how it's implemented, the platform, specific products, and how wrong my opinion is, so only use them if you don't know any better. "?" indicates it depends entirely on the platform.

If you've made it all the way here, lemme know if you want something closer to a step-by-step instructions of getting a "smart home" using a Hubitat. I don't like telling people "do this" when there are so many different ways, and I'm nowhere near done with my way, but with enough interest I might be convinced.
1 Disclaimer: Just FYI, "switch", "remote" and "controller" can have varying meanings that differ between general usage, electrical devices, and in home automation. I'm using a generic, non-technical, meanings.

2020.09.19 15:45 notdeadmaybe Hi, I'm looking to build a new gaming PC to run games on 1080p at 144 Hz. 1900-2000$ Budget.

1. What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games (ex: resolution, FPS, settings) or programs you will be using.
Gaming on 1080p high/ultra settings. looking to get 144 fps on games like fortnite, valorant, Resident Evil 7, and cyberpunk 2077. I would also like to be able to play vr games.
2. What is your maximum PRE-TAX budget before rebates and shipping?
3. When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
As soon as possible. However, I dont mind buying all the parts except the GPU and then buying a new 3080/3070s when they are back in stock.
4. What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ex: toweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Just the computer itself. I have the OS/monitokeyboard/mouse/Storage.
5. If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? How old are they? Brands and models are appreciated.
I'll be reusing the parts listed below.
Mouse: razer viper ultimate. Age: 1 month old Keyboard: annie pro 2. Age: 1 year Monitor: View Sonic 24 1080p 1ms 144 Hz Gaming Monitor. Age: 1 year Storage: Samsung 850 Pro 512GB, 2TB Internal Hard Drive Age: 4.5years
6. Will you be overclocking (ex: CPU/GPU/RAM)? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line?
Not really interested, However I don't mind doing it down the line.
7. Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, Wi-Fi, VR, VirtualLink, tensor cores, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
I would like to be able to play vr games, once I get a vr headset.
8. Do you have any specific case preferences (ex: mITX/mATX/mid-towefull-tower sizes, styles, colours, window or not, LED lighting, etc.), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Ideally, I would like a black case. However, I don't mind it being a different color.
9. Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? Note: some post-secondary students can get Windows 10 for free.
I will not be needing a copy of windows 10, as I already have it.
10. Will you be upgrading this PC in the future (ie: will you swap out better parts later on or will you build an entirely new tower later)? If so, when?
I will probably just build another computer in about 5 years.
11. Do you have a brand preference? (ex: AMD/Intel for CPUs, AMD/NVIDIA for video cards, etc)
I don't have a preference for either brand. I just want the best in terms of price/performance.
12. What are the specs of your old PC / laptop? Do you want to see if it can be upgraded instead? If so, paste its build from PCPartPicker here.
I'll be giving away the PC to another person. I'll only be keeping the storage devices.
13. Extra info or particulars:
Quick question. Will this PC be able to run games on 1440p at 144 Hz? I plan to use a 1080p 144 Hz monitor but I could upgrade later if 1440p at 144 Hz is possible with this budget.
Thank you very much.
