~100 models comparison from ~30 repos
Fiyu with her picture collections
Hi there! I made a "website" that compares a bunch of models using one prompt (and settings) to somewhat quickly see what the model is capable of.
This is the link to my site, originally built for my repo of colabs for anime models but why the hell not share it here too? We are all weebs here and I think you guys are the perfect audience of this lmao.
Website screenshot (this is only at the top of the page!)
Where is ? When are you adding ?
Ah yeah, I only add models if I like the model (or if its unique in a way). You can check the models I already saw by looking at my HuggingFace favorites or looking at this GitHub "Triage" thingy. But you can still suggest models, but it will come to my personal tastes if I want to add it tho. If I add a model, a colab notebook gets created too ;)
But I am quite actively hunting for new and banger anime models so this library will continue to grow. :D

How long did this take?
I only did this with my free time, lmao, so a quite long time? I essentially made samples to like 100 models, on Google Colab so its slow asf. If only I didn't buy that AMD card :/
The initial commit: almost a month wtf

The website is ugly. >:
I know :( My coding experience isn't for the front end and I hate CSS :sob:

Website source code?
https://github.com/anime-webui-colab/showcase feel free to roast my code

Prompt for the first image?
(masterpiece, best quality, high quality,:1.2), shadows, outline, indoors, detailed background, (picture frame in background:1.1), gallery 1girl, blonde hair, blue eyes, short hair, wavy hair, (hair ribbon, blue ribbon:1.1), detached sleeves, blue dress, light smile from side, looking away, looking to the side, Negative prompt: (worst quality, low quality:1.4), letterboxed, multiple girls, Steps: 20, Sampler: Euler, CFG scale: 7, Seed: 1504947073, Size: 800x512, Model: exsoulvoyant, Variation seed: 34881158, Variation seed strength: 0.2, Denoising strength: 0.6, Clip skip: 2, Hires upscale: 2, Hires upscaler: Latent (nearest-exact)

Yeah. That's it. Thanks for passing by this post. <3

Here's the links again:

2023.04.02 15:14 malcolm2134 Love Among Jaws

(Warning: Long Read. I would really appreciate it if someone gave me feedback/critique on this narrative/prose poem. I tried OCpoetry, but I find I hardly get any feedback on my narrative poems, compared to my traditional poems. I admit, I am a beginner when it comes to the prose/narrative poetry style. So, if someone that writes or is familiar with narrative poems could give some advice, that would be great.)

"We'll be kids again."
The words of my best friend,
lingered within me.
I believed the chase for my childhood
would end, when I saw her again.
The three of us, back in Paradise.

My dreams crashed with the ship,
they glimmer as flashbacks in the sea.
The winds stole our future.
The gateway to my past,
a wreck.
Our lives were inflated on uncertainty.
Our final miracle made from nylon,
keeping us afloat the hunger.
It wasn't supposed to be like this.

Terror tramples my trance—
I watch as my best friend turns to crimson.
His soul was led by dehydration,
bait of the ocean salt.
The mirages of the thirst,
pushed him off the raft
to the Phantoms of the Pacific.
Part of my childhood was crunched and consumed,
flesh and marrow swallowed by the blue
and swirled with blood.
The Jaws were the rulers,
and we were the nomads of their domain.
They stared with black voids that latched
fear across our eyes.

We watch the teeth continue
to swarm around us.

Time battered us with Hunger.
And our Thirst,
beckoned by the illusion,
that traps us.
She was a lighthouse,
crumbling apart.
I hold her close.
Her tears weren't made
for the shadows in the sea.
Our embrace,
cast the fires of nostalgia,
warming the ice of the dark.
For a moment,
I forget about the demons lurking.
Their Gluttony grinds,
in wait . . .
of the smallest mistake.

She'll survive,
even if my own light had to drown.
My bones were filled with blame,
but the lullabies of her breaths,
whisked away my shame.
The Whale's song,
called out in the distance.
I sink into the past, where I belong.
My eyes
let the perils fade into the moonlight.

I awoke to
Scum of the sky.
They taunt and tease us,
with their flutters.
Their squawks leave us behind—in flight.
If only,
we were born with wings,
instead of the arrogance of the apex.
Out here we are reminded,
we too, are part of the Earth's Kingdom.
The air dries our throats,
as I return the jellyfish to the tides,
and she tries to bridge us back
to civilisation with static.
The famine feasts on our wills,
the scent of our sweat,
courting the punishers of the gallow,

She collapses
I rush to her
aid. I breathe my hopes
into her
lungs.With no response.
I search the floors,
a flask hides in
one of the gaps.
Water, my elixir.
I raise her head and
She coughs out whirlpools,
the shine of her pearls
gaze up at me.
I drape her in my jacket,
afraid her fever would
rip her away from my arms.
I feel the anchor of my lips,
weigh down on her beauty.
The regret from my youth,
cast out onto the seabed.
As I reel away,
she laughs. And so do I.
At last,
it only took both living and dying,
to spur my courage.
I feel like,
if I mouthed the three words,
Everything will be fine again.
She raises a finger of understanding,
to my lines
I let the silence express my feelings to her.
Our love immortalised above
the depths of death.

Then the sunshine died.
The sky overflowed with smog,
threatening to rain down violence.
The horizon was polluted by stars,
lighting up bloodlust in the waters.
I scream at the sky
Not to the Gods of imagination.
Not to the lies of planets.
Nor to the universe of nothing.
For us.
I always looked at the sky,
with resentment. The sky that
separated me and her.
The end of my childhood.
Now I wonder,
if it was just protecting her.
If only I had been strong enough,
to live
as a blur in our polaroid.
I feel her strokes release my mind.
As the burden atop my shoulders,
evaporates in the ripples of rage.
The beams of her visage,
clears the mist in my heart.
we watch the waves burn.
The lightning above ignites its hate,
sparking the beasts in the abyss of sapphires.
Their hunger flashes in the currents.
Their patience wanes.
The violet of the dark,
cradles our isolation.
I submit to the storm's fury
and melt into the night.

"You coming, chicken?"
My best friend was below.
I stood above him on a cliff.
I hesitated and cursed under my breath.
was beside me.
She grabs my hand.
I felt courage in her palms.
The calm waves underneath,
opened the doorways to its wonders,
an invitation for us.
My mind as clear as the sky.
We both promise to jump in three.
One . . .
Two . . .
Three . . .
leap into our futures of
emblazoned hope.
A whiff of familarity followed . . .
Marshmallows on a bonfire.
My friend makes his goofy, kissy faces at me.
And gives me the thumbs-up.
Next to me,
her flames were reborn, guiding my shadow.
They've both returned!
The forest fills with our jokes.
was encased in our laughter.
My Home. My Peace. My Paradise.
So Warm.
So Safe.

Much water thrashed my face.
Reality shook me
from my fantasy.
She was screaming
at the predators.
Both fighting and
giving up.
Their fins stalk for prey.
The dangers drew upon death.
I do what I've done my whole life,
I hold on.
Years of my longingness,
reflects in the ocean's mirror.
The breeze of my words,
soothes her nerves.

Our bodies were our greatest enemy.
Even oxygen suffocated us.
The infinite seconds of our ordeal, made us
both age by centuries.
The flares for humanity were cut.
No one was coming.
She crawls towards me,
and offers her hand.

"We'll be kids again."
Words in a different life.
Our pains wash over us,
as we stagger to the brink,
of our fates.
One . . . I just want to live in the past.
Two . . . return me to my Paradise.
Three . . .

I hold the memories in her hand and squeeze.

2023.04.02 15:09 walterherbst Jack Ruby's Mysterious Houston Trip The Day Before JFK Assassination

Jack Ruby's Mysterious Houston Trip The Day Before JFK Assassination
On November 20, 1963, two days before the JFK assassination, Jack Ruby attended an all-night party at the home of Frank T. Tortoriello in Dallas. According to the FBI's report, also in attendance were Jada, a stripper at Ruby's club, Joe Federici and his wife, and a next door neighbor named Ann Bryant. The possible significance of this little gathering is unclear. What is known is that Tortoriello was a partner in a construction company connected to the Mafia and that he was a good friend of Joe Campisi. Federici was connected to the crime family of Vito Genovese and departed Dallas suddenly on the day of the assassination for Rhode Island "to visit relatives."
The next day, mobster Eugene Brading arrived in Dallas and checked into the Cabana Motel. He contacted his probation officer and said "he planned to see Lamar Hunt and other oil speculators while here." After the assassination, Brading would deny visiting the Hunt offices, but according to Hunt’s chief of security, Paul Rothermal, the visitors log for that lists three associates of Brading, Bauman, Brown and Nowlin, "and friend." Rothermal insists the friend was Brading.
Brading told the FBI he left Dallas after the assassination for Houston as soon as he was released from custody, but records show he didn’t arrive in Houston until four days later. An internal memo written by Paul Rothermal, stated, "He [Brading] had been in both prior to and after the assassination to see us on an oil deal...." For some reason, this was something both Brading and the Hunts didn't want to disclose.
Jack Ruby also visited the offices of Hunt Oil the same morning as Brading. Ruby always had a good excuse for such things, and he told the FBI he had driven a young friend named Connie Trammel there for a job interview. However, it is hard to believe it was unrelated to Brading’s visit. A memo from Warren Commission counsels Hubert and Griffin showed they were suspicious: "Ruby visited his [Lamar Hunt]office on November 21. Hunt denies knowing Ruby. Ruby gives innocent explanation."
Two scripts from H.L. Hunt's Life Line radio program were found in Ruby’s car after he shot Oswald, and the FBI reported that Lamar Hunt's phone number appeared "in a book which was the property of Jack Ruby." Lamar Hunt could explain why Jack Ruby had his phone number.
Around noon that day, Ruby was seen at City Hall by Dallas Police Officer W.F. Dyson, who said Ruby handed out Carousel Club cards to officers in the office of Assistant DA Ben Ellis. Ruby told Ellis, "You probably don't know me now, but you will." Shortly thereafter, Jack Ruby left Dallas to stalk President Kennedy in Houston.
Ruby was vague later when asked about his movements that afternoon. Andrew Armstrong, the Carousel Club handyman, saw him "with Mickey Ryan, a bartender who wanted to borrow money from Ruby." Ryan contradicted this, telling the FBI he "last saw Ruby approximately two weeks prior to November 22." Armstrong also believed Ruby called some union officials, but phone records do not show any calls from the Carousel Club that day.
The truth is Jack Ruby was not at the Carousel Club that afternoon, despite the feigned attempt at an alibi by Andrew Armstrong. He had hastily traveled to Houston after leaving City Hall, which would be unimportant were it not that President Kennedy was in Houston at the same time. On December 2, 1963, a report filed by Secret Service agent Lane Bertram explained that: "Numerous witnesses identify Jack Leon Rubenstein (also known as) Jack Ruby, as being in Houston, Texas on November 21, for several hours, one block from the President's entrance route and from the Rice Hotel where he stayed."
Bertram interviewed five people on November 26 who claimed to have seen Ruby. A Houston deputy sheriff, Bill Williams, "saw the man on two or three different occasions and talked to him about 3 P.M." Williams was sure the man was Ruby. Bertram showed all five police photos of Ruby. "All agreed that in their opinion Jack Rubenstein was in Houston on November 21 from about 2:30 to 7:15 P.M...."
The witnesses who saw Ruby said he disguised himself by wearing an army jacket and boots over his white shirt and dark striped pants. He told people he was an oil worker, but was described as "a smooth talker, but talked rather rapidly and appeared nervous." He told one person he had money and a Cadillac parked around the corner. Two others said he asked about a local club on Washington Street.
It is hard to imagine that Ruby's hurried Houston trip was unrelated to JFK’s presence there. If he had planned to see the Presidential motorcade as a prelude to the assassination, he was disappointed. The blue Lincoln that would carry the President into Dealey Plaza was delivered directly to Dallas via a cargo plane. In Houston, Kennedy rode in a smaller, white convertible. However, the bubble was left off the car and the location of Secret Service agents was the same as Dallas. Perhaps this was what Ruby was looking for.
Ruby returned to Dallas that evening and was seen by several people at the Egyptian Lounge, a gangster hangout owned by Joseph Campisi, the Dallas Mafia figure who was close to Carlos Marcello. Accompanying Ruby was his good friend Ralph Paul, who would pass along messages between Ruby and other mobsters throughout the assassination weekend.
Whatever Ruby was doing in Houston, it definitely had something to do with JFK’s murder, and WC attorneys Hubert and Griffin understood it was not just the Mafia to whom Ruby was connected: "The most promising links between Jack Ruby and the assassination of President Kennedy are established through underworld figures and anti-Castro Cubans, and extreme right-wing Americans.” Jack Ruby was not your typical strip club owner.

2023.04.02 15:08 ArrivalEfficient4918 Do I really need to complete IB?

So I’ve done IB about 7-8 times. I have the brief case and the last cash. Should I… 1. Use a blue card and upgrade the brief case and merge the cash and be done?
  1. Continue to play until I get there organically and not waste a blue card?
I haven’t been making arches to generate the items because it takes up so much room. Yesterday I thought okay let me finish this. Well, I stupidly put the arches in my inventory and who knew that producers don’t recharge when sitting in inventory! 😩 (I didn’t read that part in the “manual” 😉).
The further I get in the game, the more difficult it is to have all this stuff in inventory and on the board.
Thanks for any suggestions!!

2023.04.02 15:00 warfighter187 Possible to get multiple resy bonuses?

Hello everyone, does anyone know if it is not possible to get multiple resy bonuses?
i applied for the gold card a couple of years ago and got the 75k + 250 (via 10% back on restaurants ) through resy.

I tried to get the Blue Cash Everyday through resy just now and found out I am in pop up jail. has anyone tried this and can confirm / blow up my suspicion that they will only let you get 1 resy bonus lifetime?
If I log in to amex, It still shows me welcome bonuses for many cards such as 100k for the plat, 200$ for the BCE. I imagine they wouldn't show me those if I was ineligible...

2023.04.02 15:00 ChimmyChimmyChuchu What are reference cards used for? [Citi Application]

After applying for a Citi card, I was asked if I have a previously issued credit card from other banks. I said yes and inputted my credit card info from BPI.

Asking out of curiosity, what do banks like Citi do with the credit card number they have from me?
My reference card was Amore Cashback, but I realized I could have used the Blue instead, which was the one I use more, though they both have a shared credit limit. Would my chances have improved if I used the Blue one with more transactions, or do they just care about the credit limit?
Thank you!

2023.04.02 14:53 HugeRaspberry Error or just a Quality Miss?

There are a ton of posts on this sub asking - is this an error? Generally the answer is NO.
Errors are (or should be) considered to be items that are WRONGLY DESIGNED or Mis Cast - in some quantity... Meaning - the actual casting is incorrect, missing a key feature that is in the photo / description and is produced in some number (Greater than 1) and is replaced at some point by the corrected version of said casting.
For example (I am using baseball cards here) - a 1989 Fleer Card had a bat shown on the card with the words - "Fuck Face" - written on then end of the bat. Thousands of that card were produced until someone at the factory noticed the obscenity and they corrected it - first with a white out of the words then a more common blacked out version. The Error (with the obscenity is not the most valuable of the 3 versions - it is actually the 2nd most common version of the card. The white out version is valuable one.
In that case it was a LEGITIMATE error. They produced thousands of the error and correction.
99% of what is reported here as errors are merely misses in the quality process.
The car didn't get decals - but the 15 next it on the pegs did. Sorry - Not an Error.
The car has 3 wheels instead of 4. But the rest of the cars on the pegs have 4. Not an error.
Now this would be an error: Mattel's catalog shows car #240 as a red nissan skyline. and the card shows a red nissan skyline. but every single one that you see in the store is blue. And then suddenly Mattel comes out with a RED Nissan Skyline - same number, same card. That my friends is an ERROR.
TL:DR - 99% of the "errors" posted here are not ERRORS. They are simply quality lapses at the factory.

2023.04.02 14:53 Maxiride I wish I could play some AAA games at least at medium/high settings, can I manage to go any cheaper than this?

I've tried to assemble a build exclusively for some couch and casual gaming. From party games with friends to some solo on Hogwarts Legacy for instance. The rig will live in my living room and used only to play games.
I can't hide that the price tag quite scares me and I understand that some beefy hardware is needed after all. Nonetheless is there any piece that could be swapped for cheaper one whilst affecting the least the overall build? Maybe an older CPU or a simpler heatsink? From my research I understand can't go any lower than the RX6600 for some decent gameplay too for the upcoming years.

[US] Sealed Ohio blue seal playing cards - Tally Ho, Steamboat, Aladdin, Arrco, Virginia Slims, Aviators
Hi All,
Those of you who have been on this sub long enough may know that I had hundreds of blue seals for sale in the past. I sold the bulk of them years ago and thought I'd hang onto the rest for personal use, but decided to sell a few more here. These are the last Ohio blue seal "classics" I plan to put up for sale for a while (if not ever), since any I sell after this would be truly my last ones. Prices may be negotiable if you can show me a recent listing or sale, but since these are some of the last blue seals I have, I'm firm on my prices otherwise. Aside from the Aladdins, tucks are in good condition but likely not perfect (e.g., possible dinged corners, light scratches). Tally and Arrcos are in cello, the rest are not. Prices are in USD for PayPal F&F or other fee-free methods, please add 4% for G&S.
Tally Ho circle back: Q1 top quality, ordered from a magic supplier in the mid-2000s, better quality than the Tallies you'd find in stores at the time. $30
Steamboat 999: Both in great condition but one tuck is noticeably yellower than the other, presumably older but not clear to me. Feel free to specify which one you want if both are available. Both are original Steamboats, NOT reprints by D&D. $30 each
Aladdins: Newer Aladdins (including newer blue seals) have the back design on one side of the tuck and indicate smooth finish vs. air cushion. These are the OG Aladdins, made when smooth finish was the default. Corner of the tuck is dented (I believe good condition ones would sell for ~$40). $30
Arrcos: $30 each, $50 for the pair
Virginia Slims: $10 each
Aviators: $15 each, $25 for the pair
Shipping in the US is $6 for 1-2 decks, $9 for 3-6. Larger orders or international shipping will be calculated upon request. Check out my other recent listings to see if you want to combine shipping!

2023.04.02 13:57 GoodMoaningAll Undermonetization of Legends of Runeterra and suggestions (Boy, thats a long post)

I think we can all agree that LoR is very, bery generous. Most likely even too generous.
We can see the budget cuts here and there already, which makes me a bit worried. Normally i would blame suits for that but in LoR's case ... They probably didnt push enough for monetization.
Dont get me wrong - I dont want LoR to be a F2P nightmare like Snap or Hearthstone is, but there are other ways to allow us to spent money. I would like to list a few things that could be done to make it more profitable for Riot and allow it to get a higher budget again. If anyone has more ideas i would really like it if you list them as well!

- Make alternate Art from skins match other cards in the deck. What i mean by that is that its very weird that Worldbreaker Elise summons her Worldbreaker Spiderling, but if you use Vile Feast, while you have the Elise skin enabled, you just gain the vanilla version. It always kinda turned me away from using a skin and i bet im not the only one. It seems like a easy enough fix to do as well.
- Give skins some interesting summon animation or sell them seperatly to use them for any Champion. This could give us another layer of cosmetics we can buy for our decks. What if my Asol card actually flew from the sky instead of just dropping on the board? Or (my future) Skarner just burries out of my board? I would buy one in a heartbeat!
- Give us "Legendary Guardians" that transform if a certain condition is met. A Warwick that that goes into "Hunting mode" when the enemy Nexus has 10 or less HP, some shuriman guy that ascends when your champion levels up or you countdown the sundisk or Von Yipp that gets his Catastrophe suit once you play X different cards this game. Maybe even a small rammus who hides in his shell while the enemy has the attack token. There are a ton of possibilities and would be very popular IMO.
- Sell us cool borders with maybe another price tier with animated borders. Currently we can already buy Icons, but we cannot decorate them outside of our Ranked Border. I would love to be able to have some Hallowed Mist flowing around my Gwen Icon. Others might enjoy some electricity running around their Jayce. This even one of the less expensive cosmetic addition to make.
- Sell us "SFX Skins". That idea floats around since the game launched. One of the primary examples was a Thermo Beam that actualy shot a leaser from above like the card art showed. I was sceptic of this at first cuz that could incentivice Riot to take out a costum animation and sell it back to us, but if they made different animation for cards that already have one or for iconic cards that dont have an animation (Vile Feast) then i would actully encourage that!
- Add "Finisher Animations" like TFT has. Obviously TFT gets more usage out of their animation since you should be able to win at least some rounds per game there, but i think it could a good addition as another cosmetic layer to spend your money on. Ziggs throwing his W to the Nexus to make it explode like he does to Turrets in LoL? It could be tricky to implement bc people would have to wait for maybe a second longer at the end of the game.
- Add borders other than Prismatics. You dont even have to give them out for free. Maybe make one to earn once a blue moon, but currently prismatics are very boring. I would love to add "Ruined Branches" to my Maokai/Snapvine deck. Or Noxus-like walls around my cards. Maybe even sell animated once for a higher price.
This one is less of an addition and more like a change thats entirely subjective - Increase the price of the Battle Pass and the value it contains and split the PoC BP and the regular BP. I dont buy the Battle Passes reguarly bc i think they just arent worth it. The Skins are cool, so are the additional cards you gain through the chests or just straight up 3 copies of smt. But PoC fragments? PoC relics? Prismatic chest are kinda worthless as well. And i feel like they fill more and more of the BP. This really kills the value for anyone that doesnt play both PvP and PoC cuz the rewards really dont overlap in any way. You dont need shards or relics in PvP and you dont need the cards or skins in PoC. Its very parasitic in nature.
As i already mentioned - i would love to see your suggestion and what your opinion about that matter is.

2023.04.02 13:19 MissSweetCandyCoco [F4A] 🌟Mahoshojo RP!~ Lets Make A Colorful Team!~🌟

🌟Greetings readers!~🌟
🌟I am looking to RP a magical young woman RP similar to Power Rangers and Pretty Cure!~ This would mostly be PG13! So we won't be killing civilians left and right! As for me, I have 8 years RP experience! Am literate or above, and am a History and English Highschool teacher!~🌟
🌟I have a fairly basic idea for this RP plot that we can edit together and such! But here is what I have that we can EASILY build off of.🌟
🌟Five thousand years ago. A demon was sealed into hell by five female warriors! One Red, One Blue, One Green, One Pink, and One Yellow! These warriors were called "The Demon Sealers!" After a long fought battle, they finally defeated a powerful demon called Gurigax! Gurigax was a strong demon, having the power to turn objects into Demons! In Gurigax's final breath, he cursed the warriors. Claiming that in five thousand years, he will return and take over the world! Over running it with his demons! Upon hearing this, the five young women came up with a plan. The five young women gave up their power, making sure that once their powers feel the return of any demon, the powers will seek out new hosts to defend the world from the powerful Gurigax!🌟
🌟Five Thousand Years Later.🌟
🌟A few children at a local daycare were playing with their toys! Enjoying playing with cards, toys, dolls, bored games, and other such trinkets children play with... That was... until the flor under them started glowing red! A hole started to form. The daycare workers, thinking it was a sinkhole, grabbed the children and ran out of the building!🌟
🌟It was far worse than any sinkhole.🌟
🌟"OH!~ It is so good to be back!~ Humans!!! Did you miss me?~" A large red demon would say, looking around the room, though he shakes his head as he sees there are no humans within the he was in. "How rude! Not throwing a welcome party for your new GOD?!?~ Very well! Its time to punish you humans like I did years before!~" The somewhat playful sounding voice would cry out as he slams his fist into the ground. Suddenly! Various toys raised into the air! Thunder STRIKING each toy in the room! Each and every toy starting to become a new demon!🌟
🌟Three miles away...🌟
🌟Dozens of teenage students all rush into their school building. They were all having a beautiful sunny recess after lunch, but all of the sudden, it started thundering! So all of the students had to rush inside to safety...🌟
🌟One young woman, as she was about to run inside... Trips over something! It seems a box had been coming out of the ground. The young woman thought that it must have been that another student was burrying something. Though, when she looks down at the box! She sees various trinkets within it! Five in total, each of a different color! The young woman quickly pop the box out of the ground and decides to take it inside with her...🌟
Well!~ Here we are!~ This is my basic plotline for this story! We can EASILY build off of this together!~ Please comment or DM if you are interested! I am EXTREMELY friendly and love to make new friends!~

2023.04.02 12:56 F4TAL3FFECT Budget prebuilt PC upgrade

My overseas friend badly needs an upgrade to his PC from 2018. It was put together by a shop that builds PCs, so basically a prebuilt. He is not very knowledgeable with PCs. He's only thought about upgrading it now because it doesn't let him play RDR1 (not enough VRAM).

He is only playing at 1080p, 60hz (monitor). Not a huge gamer as well, flexible with ingame settings.

Budget needs to be below 400€.

Part(s) would be purchased in Germany. Happy to buy second hand.

I know there's a lot of issues with the build (PCIE 2, single RAM stick, shitty 500W PSU), and that the best thing would be to upgrade the whole thing. But he wants to keep the changes to a minimum and keep it simple. Obviously it would be best for any changes to be decently future-proof.

My thoughts are to either:
- upgrade GPU to something a little better + another 8gb stick of RAM for dual channel access.
- upgrade GPU to something way better + new power supply.

The current build is as follows:

2023.04.02 12:47 Vegetable_Wear8016 A short love story - Fiction

Hi Ladies, this is a short story by me which will help bring some joy to your day.
Mangalore Buns
It was a beautiful day in September, the sun was gentle, the trees were in between the hues of orange and brown and the afternoons were perfect for a nap. Dharma, however, was in the middle of chaos.
He was waiting for the parents of his students to start arriving. It was the dreaded parent-teacher meeting before the biggest festivities of the year began.
Dharma worked in a prominent convent school in Bangalore in South India. He was 26 and taught Chemistry to high school students from grades 8-10. This was his first job and he had been here for a little over a year and was glad that he didn’t have to work for a lesser-known school. He enjoyed the benefits he received like free transportation and low-cost meals at the canteen.
He was a lanky, tall man with dusky skin and delicate almond eyes. He wore grey almost every day to work and liked to keep to himself most of the time. His age almost always worked against him in his work as the senior teachers disregarded his ideas and the head of the department of Chemistry asked him to temper his work constantly.
However, Dharma liked his students. They were his source of entertainment and pride. The boys always had interesting PlayStation games to talk about and the girls loved discussing the latest Netflix shows with him. When any of them exhibited even a remote interest in Chemistry he felt his job had a purpose.
The parents waited in line as Dharma addressed each of them patiently. There were the usual parents he had always encountered. The type who was perpetually unhappy despite their child being in the top 10% of the class, the type who wanted their child to make friends with the top 10% and not hang out with average Joes, the type who was embarrassed by their child’s academic performance and did not want to be at the meeting and lastly, the ones whose solution to everything was tuition classes for all the subjects that matter.
Three hours and several cups of coffee later, he offered a tissue to the last student who was pretending to cry as her mother bombarded her with questions. “She will pass all the subjects in the finals sir, I guarantee it. This girl is too focused on enjoying life” the mother told Dharma as she was leaving. “Don’t worry madam, Anju is going to do well” he responded mentally noting Anju’s mother’s definition of enjoying life was her daughter’s gift for music and the arts.
And then there was one. Yogi was the only student left in class waiting for his mother patiently. She came rushing into the door just as Dharma thought she wouldn’t show.
Ambika Bhat wore a lavender shirt that was dotted with yellow sunflowers with small gold hoop earrings. She was a chubby woman with curly hair and a very expressive face. She had a vibrant personality and a voice that demanded attention.
She apologised profusely for being late. Dharma couldn’t help but notice how lavender was such a beautiful colour on her, he hated lavender in general. He only liked greys and blues. “Did she do something different to her hair?” he wondered as she scanned Yogi’s grades.
“I have already gone through his grades and overall performance online, I came for a discussion” she informed him. They discussed Yogi’s weaknesses in depth when Dharma offered to take tuition classes exclusively for Yogi. “That won’t be necessary Dharma, I have almost finalised a private tutor who can cover Math and Science, he has a Master’s degree from a really good university and teaches at an international school” she declined politely. “This has nothing to do with the past, he is a bright student and because we’ve spent so much time together, I know how to guide him” he protested. “I didn’t question your intentions, I just think this is the best option for him,” she said. “Private tutors are expensive,” he said noticing that she was tapping her foot nervously against the table. “I’ll manage, thanks for your help. Let’s review his performance after the mock exam before the finals” she said ending the conversation. She left the classroom as swiftly as she had entered it, her perfume lingered which took Dharma back in time.
It was a hot day in June when he met Ambika for the first time. It was his first month on the job at the school. She wanted to meet Yogi’s math and science teachers. She was surprised to find a young twenty-something Chemistry teacher talking to her passionately about different academic opportunities for her son.
Within a month, Ambika had Dharma conducting private tuition classes for Yogi at her residence. He understood how Yogi learnt and had a reassuring presence. They met at her place twice a week for two hours. Ambika always ensured Dharma received hot chai and biscuits, she would never let a guest leave her house without them trying her ginger chai. She took it personally when Dharma told her that he was a coffee person and didn’t like her tea.
Dharma, being an introvert, did not attempt to start a conversation with Ambika. He preferred to keep it professional and discuss only school-related issues. Ambika, a busy single working mother, had no time to spare to talk to Dharma after class.
‘There’s nowhere you can be, that isn’t where you’re meant to be’ – John Lenon
Bangalore was notorious for its unpredictable weather, it would rain all day at the drop of a hat. Dharma was just about finished with his session with Yogi when the beginning of the rainfall that could drown you began.
There was nothing much he could do except browse through articles on his phone. Ambika was exhausted after a long day of training for the new employees, she was a Human Resources manager at Amazon.
After what seemed like an hour, Ambika realised that the rain would continue for the next few hours and Dharma could not travel on his bike in such heavy rainfall nor would he be able to get a cab. She decided it would be rude if she didn’t offer him dinner.
Sitting across the dining table, sharing a meal of Sambhar and rice, for the first time in 2 months, they had a conversation about themselves. Yogi was in the living room watching Japanese anime. They chatted about their careers, their favourite restaurants in the city and their families. Ambika’s parents were living in Udupi and visited her often, especially after her difficult divorce to lend support and help take care of Yogi. Dharma lived with his mother, he had lost his father a few years ago.
It was easy to talk to Ambika. She was so talkative and cheerful that the conversation flowed easily for Dharma. They both liked Italian food and she disliked the same senior teachers in school that he did. He was almost disappointed when it was time to leave. He felt like he had a long conversation with his best friend from college.
It rained that entire week and Dharma was stuck at Ambika’s house for many hours after class. They enjoyed long conversations over a bowl of noodles, fried rice and khichdi depending on the day. Ambika shared stories of the funny candidates she had interviewed and the twisted corporate politics that Dharma was not privy to.
When the bout of bad weather had ended, Dharma found himself thinking about Ambika. He was attracted to her in a way he knew was wrong. She was a mother in her early 40s, focused on giving her son the best education she could afford. He could find someone in the same phase of life as him he told himself.
It was Yogi’s 14th birthday and Dharma was invited for a private lunch Ambika had organised with Yogi’s close friends and some of her friends. It was in a gaming arena where a bunch of teenagers were too distracted with virtual reality to care about the adults. Ambika looked radiant in a yellow maxi dress with her curly hair tied up in a bun. He could smell her rose-scented perfume standing next to her.
Ambika’s friends were as extroverted as she was. They tried to include him in the conversation, they shared a delicious lunch and he discovered through them that she used to be a theatre artist for many years as a passion until she had Yogi. ‘That explains her expressive face’ he thought.
When he chanced upon an opportunity to find the famous city theatre RangaShankara hosting folk music he felt no harm in asking Ambika if she wanted to watch it. “I haven’t watched a live performance in years, it’s sweet of you to remember I used to be a theatre artist,” she told him smiling at the thought of being near the stage again.
Several months passed, and Yogi was busy with school, friends and his anime oblivious that his mother had been having evening dates at the ‘darshini’ (a local cuisine restaurant) with his favourite teacher. They often met after her work to grab a bite, she always picked Mangalore buns, a sweet fried bread made from flour and ripe bananas served with coconut chutney. A childhood favourite that originated from her birthplace. “Only this place makes it fresh,” she told Dharma each time.
Yogi’s mother who normally stayed away from romance of any kind after his father had broken her heart was now looking at love differently. She looked at love as companionship, a friendship that she could rely on rather than an all-consuming emotion that could blow up in flames if ignited.
“You are interested in a 40-year-old single woman whose son you teach?! Have you lost your mind?” Dharma’s mother asked him looking stunned at the news her son had just given her. “You can find an equal match, you are out of her league, why would you want to shoulder this kind of responsibility at 26?!” she continued getting visibly angrier at his nonchalant attitude. “So, pretending to like a spouse for 30 years of marriage like you did was not a burden but choosing to like someone who just happens to be unconventional is a burden?” he asked her. “Everyone has different burdens they need to carry in their lives, I could not choose mine, it was forced upon me, but you get to choose and this is not an option,” she told him leaving the room to ensure Dharma did not attempt to convince her.
It took many dinners at her house together after Yogi’s class, theatre performances and darshini dates for Ambika to arrive at the realisation that she was unconsciously building a relationship that could not be defined . He was an intelligent, thoughtful, reliable man whose presence comforted her but he was also very young. Her family and friends would disapprove, they lived in a relatively conservative society. She would be risking her son’s future but most importantly she couldn’t afford to have another broken heart in one lifetime.
It was a hot summer’s day in April, the beginning of summer vacation at the school. 9 months after they had first met. The chutney was sour just like Ambika’s mood. Dharma arrived not wearing grey for the first time hoping she would notice. Ambika had been distant to him for a few weeks, he did not expect this to be the usual chat over filter coffee. He knew that both of them were dealing with conflicting emotions.
“It would be best if we stopped meeting, I will find another tutor for Yogi, I have the entire summer break to look for one,” she said looking sadly into his eyes. “Was it something I did or said?” he asked taken aback by her statement. “None, I took our friendship too far, it’s a relationship we do not need,” she told him looking down at her plate. “Are you worried about what Yogi or your family will think?” he asked her. “I don’t think there’s any point in us spending any more time together. We can focus our efforts elsewhere….sorry but this colour doesn’t suit you” she said trying to finish the last bit of sour chutney. “You don’t have to be an HR all the time, you sound like you are firing someone, we were more than colleagues” he responded to her impersonal way of ending their relationship. There was nothing more to say since they both knew the cards were stacked against them.
He processed his grief quietly, informing his mother that it was over. His mother was relieved and performed a puja to thank God for helping her son choose the right path. Dharma steered clear of eating at any darshini and made his conversation with Yogi only about class despite Yogi’s attempts to digress. Dharma never saw Ambika again until the Parent Teacher Meeting in September.
On some days, Ambika almost sent Dharma messages when she wanted to talk about the bad phase at work she was going through. She accidentally did one day and he responded “we can always share updates, we are still friends”. Dharma found weekends particularly hard to deal with. His friends didn’t possess the type of excitement and passion for life Ambika had when they went out.
In the last 3 years of Yogi’s school life, they saw each other at Parent Teacher Meetings. The conversations were brief, Yogi had become a good student in his subject so he had no complaints. The big day had finally arrived, it was the school graduation day.
He was hoping to see Ambika at Yogi’s graduation. She wore a lavender saree and had let her curly hair flow wild and open, it reflected her mood. She looked proud and happy as she posed with Yogi and her parents for photos.
She looked for Dharma, and she spotted him taking pictures with students and other teachers. He looked handsome in his grey blazer, as he bid farewell to his young students. She almost wanted to ask him to meet her at the darshini after graduation, she came very close.
“Hi…I wanted to thank you for your effort in the last 3 years. You are still Yogi’s favourite teacher and his grades in Science have always been high thanks to your guidance” she told him smiling. “I didn’t do much, he gets the zeal from his mother” he responded as their eyes met. “Will I see you after this?” he asked her afraid of the answer. “I hope so” she responded gently touching his shoulder.
It was a few years later and Dharma’s mother was excited. It was the day they were finalising the menu for Dharma’s wedding. Dharma’s fiancee Niharika, her family, Dharma and his mother were incessantly discussing the dishes. After much deliberation they handed over the final order to the caterer, there was only one dish that the chef felt was out of place on a dinner menu, it was Mangalore buns.

2023.04.02 12:46 Dtngx Easy to learn and control games for training coordination

Hey fellow Redditors,
a few weeks ago, my father went through an surgery on his carotid artery. The surgery itself went fine, but in the following hours he experienced a stroke (because of a reaction on . Luckily for him, only a small area of his brain was affected and his second carotid artery was able to provide enough blood after a very short period of time. He lost any fine control of his right arm and right hand in addition to a great reduction his concentration and ability to handle "new" situations. This was a few weeks ago. Now - after two more weeks in the hospital and another month in the physical rehabilitation clinic, where he had a lot of training physically and mentally, I'm glad that he regained nearly full fine control over his right side. Furthermore his concentration seems to improve and he slowly is able to cope better again with any type of stress (like taking a walk in a crowded town center).
He just returned home and had the first few "normal" days again. I'm really really happy how everything went after all, as he dramatically improved his physical as well as his mental condition in the last weeks.
Now to this post: I have my One X lying around (was planning to sell it actually) but now this seems like the perfect opportunity to help my father further train his coordination, giving him something to do in the next months and enjoy a few good games as well.
He really loved playing Computer games in his student time, but games were of course simpler back then (in terms of controls and visually. He played simulations like "U688 Attack Sub" a lot.) It had mostly static screens with clickable elements. Nowadays his gaming reduced to card games like Spider Solitaire and FreeCell. He never really played games with a controller and I suppose, he would be overwhelmed by many modern 3D games in which it is necessary to control the camera, a character and have a fast reaction at the same time.
My question: I'm looking for any type of Xbox game that could be worth trying out with him, maybe from your own experience with your parents, or maybe from your little ones? GamePass would be a great benefit, with many games to try basically "for free" but I don't mind spending a bit of money even just to test out a few games with him, and if he likes them. My main focuses are an easy learning curve for the controls and a low level of possible frustration though continuous deaths, or "unbeatable" passages. I will be there to test the games with him, and help him figure out the basics but I live an hour away, so I won't be able to help him easily all the time.
My first thought was actually to let him try Forza Horizon 5, as he could really enjoy just driving around freely in the Open World, and doesn't need to control the camera. In my head, this could be a good starting point. And after he gets used to it, I can really imagine him, being able to continue with races and other stuff.
But I'm open to any kind of suggestions and I'm really curious on what thought you have. Thanks for even reading until here.
Best wishes, dtngx
