2023.03.22 07:30 kwangcleanroom Assembling Pre-fabricated Modular Cleanroom
are the most convenient way to build a custom cleanroom for your facility. Panels are pre-fabricated according to your specific cleanroom design
, and arrive with everything you need to get your cleanroom up and running as soon as possible. Modular cleanroom panels
offer many benefits to the cleanroom building process, such as:
Designed with a cleanroom expert to meet your cleanroom classification
Custom-built to your application and project requirements
Pre-wired and pre-insulated panels are ready to use
Can easily be reconfigured if your project needs change
Easy to assemble for a quick turnaround time
When your prefabricated modular cleanroom
panels arrive, they’ll come with detailed directions to guide you through the setup. If the process of ordering, shipping, and assembling a modular cleanroom seems daunting, let’s break down what you can expect throughout this process.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN ASSEMBLING A MODULAR CLEANROOM
Modular cleanrooms are much more convenient than building a cleanroom on-site, but you may not know what to expect when it arrives. Let’s talk about what happens when you order your custom modular cleanroom and what’s needed when it comes time to assemble it onsite.
ORDERING YOUR MODULAR CLEANROOM
When you order your modular cleanroom, a cleanroom design
expert will go over the details of your specific project with you to make sure it contains everything you need to make your new cleanroom a success. The designing process could take a few weeks, depending on the intricacies of your cleanroom design, the type of cleanroom you order, and your cleanroom classification and specific industry requirements. Once design is complete, the panels will be fabricated to your exact specifications.
Once the panels are ready to ship, they will be packaged and transported with the utmost care. All modular cleanroom panels are made of the highest quality materials — strong enough to withstand the conditions of your work, yet flexible enough to be set up and reconfigured with ease if your project needs change.
Cleanroom design experts handle all the arrangements, so you won’t have to worry about controlling contamination risks in the shipping of your cleanroom panels.
PROFESSIONAL CLEANROOM ASSEMBLY ASSISTANCE
If you want to skip the DIY setup, you can have cleanroom professionals complete the installation for you. A cleanroom installation team can assemble your custom modular cleanroom with minimum disruption to your facility’s operations and with maximum efficiency to get your new cleanroom up and running as soon as possible. Quality cleanroom construction
is very important to the initial and future functionality of a cleanroom. A professional install team can make sure all the technical details are carried out according to your cleanroom design so that it complies with your classification requirements and industry standards.
HOW LONG DOES MODULAR CLEANROOM ASSEMBLY TAKE?
The entire design-to-installation process will depend on the complexity of your unique cleanroom. Do you have special features, storage, furniture, lighting, or systems to include in the design? Does your cleanroom fall under a stringent cleanroom classification? More complex cleanrooms will require more time to make sure every detail is just right when the modular panels arrive on your site.
Once the cleanroom has arrived, the assembly time can also vary by cleanroom type. SoftWall cleanrooms
are known for being easy to assemble, disassemble and reconfigure. SoftWall modular cleanroom assembly generally only takes a few hours. HardWall and RigidWall cleanroom assembly is more involved, but can still be completed in just a few days.
Once your modular cleanroom is set up, it’s only a matter of keeping it in optimal condition. Routine maintenance will serve to keep all systems running at peak efficiency so your operations can continue to move along smoothly.
Whether you prefer to assemble your modular cleanroom yourself, or would like a team of professionals to install it for you, Kwang Cleanroom is here to design, build, and deliver the best cleanroom available. To learn more about the process and get started with your cleanroom installation, get in touch with us today.

2023.03.22 07:30 TheSajuukKhar Ten Forward Weekly 3/21/2023
- Next event, after Voth event ends, is First Contact Day
- Ship from SNW soon(tm), though probably not one we were expecting
- Zen store ships coming up. Keal believes one of the Zen store ships is technically a Lower Decks ship
- Kael hasn't head anything regarding a bundle for DSC ending
- Unlikely Cryptic will make new starting experiences
- Kael believes theres some new item set coming soon
- When STO was launched on consoles there were 15 countries that it didn't get launched on the playstation store for, for w/e reason, and Cryptic is working on getting that fixed
- "End of game" for STO isn't happening any time soon
- The tech is there to make costume items for vanity pets, Kael isn't sure it will happen any time soon
- Kael will pass on beards for Romulans
- When asked about making older, non full spec, Zen store/lockbox ships upgraded to full spec to make them more relevant/on par with current ships Kael said that the T6x upgrades were made to help with that, and that theres more stuff coming in that area
- To get the Voth battlezone to work with the event Jesse had to do some "under the hood" magic because the game editor couldn't do it directly. The data was able to be handled by the engine, just not in a way that was directly available to them. Had to get a new icon made for the battlezone from the UI artist Joe. "Most difficult" part was opening up the battlezone and editing all the events to capture areas to give credit for completion of the event which involved.... one whole line of data!
- Jesse says it was about time they added the Battlezones to events. STO has been running events using TFOs/mini-games like Omega molecules for awhile now, why not integrate the battlezones? They have obvious break points in capturing sections that can be used for event credit. This new option seems to resonate with players, so they might do it again.
- When asked about small craft content Kael/Jesse talk about the "Mario Kart" gameplay they tested for small craft in the past. They spent weeks and weeks making it, and even got to actual testing of it, but found that the amount of work needed to make it feel good in the game was more than the payoff they would get out of it(there was a semi-long conversation about camera, movement, weight of objects, etc, between games that makes each game work/feel as it needs to be, and how STO's ship system just wasn't built for cart racing so it doesn't feel good)
- Issue with bringing the DPS test map on Tribble over to live involves both fixing rewards, and that it was made by a developer who no longer works for Cryptic so someone like Jesse would have to find the map in the code, see it how works, bring it over to live, find ways to it could be exploited and fix them, etc.(Cryptic has also previously mentioned the map isn't very optimized and bringing it over to live server would lag the game)
- Issue with the old Maco/Omega/Honor Guard unlocks is that they were awarded in ways that they don't structure the data anymore. So a designer like Jesse has to go find where in the data did they award this thing. Then it has to be passed to a programmer who has to figure out how this is actually unlocking the costume. Then it has to be sent to a costume artist who has to decide if this is something they want to give out, or does it need to be fixed up for clipping/species lists. Its not as easy as just "flip switch costume unlocked". Kael says he will ask Jarod about see if it can be added as rewards for like a Borg event or something
- Spock's volcano suit was brought up as a possible reward for this years First contact Day, but a more fun reward was thought up/decided instead. Cryptic is still aware people want it, but right now its just a costume with no stats and someone in systems would have to build the actual EV suit
- Ground vehicles, like the Argo, would require a larger overhaul to get working. The Voth mech suit works because its basically just "big group person". While Champions has vehicles theres some hard limits on what they can do. Compares it to the shuttle issues. What does it feel like to drive a car in STO? What maps can you use it on? Is it actually going to fit in all the places we want it to on a map? What happens when you crash? When you run into another car? When you drive over a critter? How is throttle handled? Do you have to shift gears? Is it automatic? Can other people ride in the car and/or possibly shoot a gun while in the car?
- Kael will ask Jarod about making older party poppers available
- Turning hoverboards on in maps like New Romulus is possible, but would require some fiddling since hoverboards work by defining a "volume" on the map where hoverboards are allowed. You have to be careful about things like ground clearance. If you notice you can just too high and accidentally have the hoverboard power turn off because the volume for allowing hoverboards only really covers the area directly above the water
- Cryptic is having ongoing discussions about how to make the V-Rex less campable
- V-Rex not counting for daily event progress it intended because of the camping issue
- Porting things between STO/Champions/Neverwitner is really difficult. Champion is locked to its own code branch meaning its more stable, but doesn't have many of the features STO/Neverwinter do. STO and Neverwinter are easier to port between because they're developed in tandem, but differences in how the game's play mean you can just port enemies between games without having to do things like rebuilding the animation rig.
- Champions isn't on console because it just didn't work out that way. It was originally going to be on Xbox 360, but that didn't work out for w/e reason.
- Reason why special BOFFs, like those based on actors, aren't editable is due to costume clipping/performance reasons. Some costume pieces don't look good on X species, other don't match well with other costume part, some things like capes/loose cloth is very performance heavy, etc. Geordi and EMH BOFFs were editable because of being very generic human shape without too many issues.
- The reason why Defense of Starbase One was bottable was because it was originally designed to require you to clean up each wave of Klingons before it would move onto the next wave. However, around the time they made it, there was a big engine bug where all instances of that "clean up the remaining enemy" would never complete. This was due to a fake entity being on the map/being used for code purposes that the game would count as an enemy even though it wasn't. In order to get around the bug the TFO was changed to just have automatic wave progression, which made it AFKable. That issue was solved, so they changed it back/adjusted what the game looks for in regards to people AFKing to make it not AFKable.
- Oddest bug Christian ever worked on was a bug that caused two people PVPing to revert to level 0 after the PVP match was over
- John said he would think about changing the Terran Valkyrie pets to use agony phasers, and that it was an interesting idea, but no confirmation of if/when it will happen.
- Updating the old uniforms is unlikely since the character artists are working on new things hinted at the end of recent missions(likely talking about the Borg arc tease)
- To revamp something like DSEs would require
- The environment team looking at the map and deciding if it looks good enough, or if its janky/needs some fixes. Spend several weeks doing that.
- Content would have to track down all associated bugs like critters warping in, fading out, then warping back in again. That's a big question mark since Cryptic doesn't know what causes it, and thus, how long it will take to fix.
- In regards to refreshing the content itself would require things like. Bringing in a voiced characteactor to be a liaison for the DSEs. Have the writer write up different text for each type of DSE. Couple days for writing, a couple days for recording, a couple days for the audio team to set audio levels and hook it all up. Character reaction has to sculpt their likeness, even if its a mini contact box and not a full dialogue screen. That's weeks of work. If its an STO original character thats still days of work. Content would then have to do things like make higher level DSEs. This would involve copying the DSEs and changing the encounter levels on them, set it all up, and make a new version of the map for all of this stuff. That's a couple days of work due to the number of DSEs. Adding new gameplay features like closing portals, rescuing ships etc, would take a few days to a week. Then it needs to be copied to all the other DSEs and edited for each kind of enemy to make sure it works. Then it goes to QA who has to test all of them, all variations, how it works with teams of people, if things like fighting one type of enemy breaks the new gameplay feature. This is a few weeks for QA to go through everything/send back to programmers to fix issues. Would also include adding DSEs to quadrants without them, critter groups not currently covered by DSEs, new accolades, trying them into the endeavor system, etc. Jesse says he would schedule around 1.5-2 months worth of time to bring DSEs up to 2023 levels of gameplay.
- Texas class not having the NA registry is a bug and is getting fixed either this week, or soon
- Bug regarding ISA right transformer not spawning with a shield has been reproduced by QA, and put on content, so it should be fixed soon
- Bug about Texas class console/experimental weapon misfiring was noted
- Female french twist hairstyle making your character invisible ws reported, confirmed by QA, and has been sent to the team to fix
- Kael asked Christian to note the Beverly hair not being available for females
- Cryptic is looking into the block? on PS4
- Christian fixed the bug on the Valkyrie hanger pet visuals, and the Jem'Hadar Zen store ships having wrong descriptions.
- The teams disbanding at the end of a TFO bug is a bug that Cryptic has dealt with for years, and it keeps coming back every time they think they've squashed it.
- Jesse fixed the bug in "Stranded in Space" regarding the science career optional
- Screen flicker in Khitomer in Stasis TFO, and other older maps, was reported
- Starfleet 32C non admiral pants clipping through the jacket also noted
- Trauma response being buggy is a known issue
- Lobi outfits not being able to be worn by BOFFs on at least the Xbox version was noted

2023.03.22 07:30 Interesting_AutoFill Everybody has a nano voiceline, except for BOB.
Since Bob does not talk or beep that we've seen, I think there needs to be an indicator from Ashe following Ana's nano voiceline.
Some lines that immediately come to mind that the fantastic Jennifer Hale could bring to life are-
"Sick 'em Bob!" "Bob's got some upgrades!"
Something that clearly indicates who the nano went to like we have for everybody else.

2023.03.22 07:29 Goddess909090 Is my brother twisted
Hello, When me and my brother were children we experimented with each other, we didn’t have penetration sex but I think he did oral on me (can’t remember for sure ) and we grinded on eachother. We never talked about it then recently we let it out. He said I don’t like hugging you because of that. That made me very sad. When I was 12, I was molested by my aunt’s husband. I told my brother and recently he said something along the lines oh you were molested but don’t you remember what happened between us. I don’t didn’t understand why he would say that… I thought to myself you are comparing the actions of 2 babies and comparing it to a grown man assaulting a child. ( I was about 9 and he was about 7 when it started) and we stopped around when I was 11 and him 9) I thought it was a bit twisted but I didn’t tell him. Recently we found out that my other brother assaulted a 14 year old child when he was 20. I cut all communication with him. My brother didn’t. I thought it was because of our nieces but Recently we were on the phone and my brother was excited to go spend some time with our pedo-rapist brother. He was dancing and saying something along the lines of can’t wait to do yard work with him. I was a little confused because you can’t hug me yet you are excited to be with our rapist brother ???? The family of the victim reached out to us. I felt shame and guilt and it took me a while to get over the fact that my other brother did this. It was his gf younger sister that he assaulted. My brother never acknowledged them ! He never even replied to their messages and talked to our brother like nothing happened. My brother is dating a 19 year old and she cheated on him and was paid for sex and she gave my brother an Std. My brother said oh well what we did as kids messed me up. My brother is 30 dating a 19 year old. What does this have to do with me ?? I’m not dating younger people or accepting to date people that can possible harm my sexual health so I didn’t get it. Recently I was on the phone with him and I asked where are you heading and him and his gf didn’t want to tell me. First of all, your gf almost put you at risk and frankly I don’t think she cares about you. My brother is always taking his gfs sides in the past. I am very hurt and I no longer want to speak to him. I don’t speak to my family and my brother is the only one that I speak to but I realize he is a bit twisted for thinking these things. I no longer want to talk to him. I realized he isn’t the kid I loved so deeply. I am so hurt but I let my love for him cloud my judgment. I think he is twisted. What are your thoughts please ? Am I overacting by not wanting to talk to him ? Thank you

2023.03.22 07:29 bubz27 PC Turns on but nothing works!
So about a week ago, I came to use my PC which has been working fine for about 3-4 years, and upon booting nothing worked. No mouse/keyboard/video output. The only thing was all the fans.
Then I went ahead and removed the ram, hard drive, gpu, and wireless card. Tried booting with only one stick of ram. Nothing
Tried resetting the CMOS, and even got a new battery. Now it turns on. video output isnt there. But keyboard and mouse light up. Every 3-5 minutes depending on the key i press i get a ASROCK bios screen for 2 sec that says screenshot saved to USB. Then it goes black.
Does anyone have any idea what I need to be doing. At this point i'm going to start ordering new hardware and testing things out, because I cannot for the life of me figure out what is wrong.

2023.03.22 07:29 thanooos Abysmal tech market---alternative career before MBA?
Hi guys here is my profile:
27M BS in Engineering from top European university, mid GPA
MS in Computer Science in Canada, 4.0/4.0 GPA. Graduating May 2023.
current work ex: only 2 SDE internships in Canada. 1.5 CS research exp before MS with no papers published(does this count as work ex)?
My original plan is to find a SDE job and get 5y work ex before applying to M7 MBA. Now it is getting away from me day by day due to the bleak tech job market. I still keep applying everyday but have not been able to secure a job so far. There are not much new job posts to begin with.
Need genuine advice/help!
- What alternative jobs/career should I be looking at right now to reach my M7 MBA goal?
- What would I do before finding any job? I could start as HVAC/plumbing apprentice or deliver mail in the meantime, can this hurt my eventual app if included in resume?
- Should I get another Master? Does it count as work ex?
- Most importantly, what do I do and how do I plan?

2023.03.22 07:28 FiLTHy_900 Can a game designer fill a role as a game programmer?
so i'm looking into getting a degree to be a game dev, and i'm torn between wether i should pursue the path of a game designer or the path of a game programmer. i think i would enjoy game designer as a job more from what i can see about it from an outsider perspective, but the talk of it being highly competitive compared to game programming is a bit intimidating. i'm not opposed to being a game programmer because that's still doing what i want to do, developing games, and the higher demand for programmers does seem like i will be less worried about landing a job.
so my question is. can i pursue a degree in game design as plan a and if i'm not having any luck, use the same degree to land a job as a game programmer instead? i see some degrees in game design do provide some knowledge and training in coding and programming, but is it enough to be considered for a position as a programmer?
another thing to consider is that i enjoy tabletop rpgs as well as video games and would find a job working on those satisfying aswell. would a degree in game design have any correlation in that despite it being more geared towards video games? could it be used to land a job at a company producing say d&d content or is it strictly useful in the field of video games?
thank you for any and all answers!

2023.03.22 07:27 Rivanov Motion not as smooth on side monitors as middle monitor - Triple Monitor Setup (with high FPS!)
Starting with my setup, I'm running ACC on my gaming PC with triple monitos. Specs of my PC are 5800x3D with 32GB DDR4 RAM, RTX 4080 and Samsung 980Pro 2TB NVMe SSD.
Monitors are 3 x AOC Q27G2e 27" 1440p 155Hz that are all connected via DisplayPort.
I'm not using NVIDIA Surround, but SRWE to get the game in triple screen. In-game graphic settings are a mix of Epic and High.
The problem is that the motion on my side monitors isn't as smooth as the motion on my center screen. It's especially noticeable with the trees. The move a bit "stuttery" / "jittery". Even when my FPS is rock solid and way above 100FPS. Sometimes even 140 or 150FPS! But whatever I change, the motion on my side monitors is never 100% smooth.
I tried enabling and disabling G-Sync, turn on and off V-Sync, uncap and cap framerate with RTSS (150FPS limit on my 155Hz monitor).
But none of these changes made the motion smooth.
On Racedepartment I stumbled upon a thread with exactly my problem, but unfortunately nobody reacted over there. (except me today...) https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/motion-not-as-smooth-on-side-monitors-as-middle-monitor-triple-monitor-setup.212226/
Does anyone have an idea what could cause this?

2023.03.22 07:27 AsBadAsAWetShit Should I listen to my primary doctor or to the specialist?
So at 35 I was diagnosed with hypertension and my, at the time, primary doctor put me on meds. He put me on a calcium channel blocker, a water pill, and baby aspirin.
Fast forward a few years and now I’m seeing a new primary. He seems good, and way more attentive than the previous doctor. This doctor keeps me on the calcium channel blocker (Amlodipine), but does change my water pill to something he says has the same effect, but with less potential side effects or something to that nature. He also didn’t like that I was taking daily aspirin at a younger age. However, he didn’t want to take me off of the aspirin by himself, and suggested I see a cardiologist. He wanted to leave that decision up to the specialist, which I kind of appreciated. So he gave me a referral and told me about the types of testing they may do, and that they may drop the aspirin and possibly start me on a statin.
So I see the specialist. He does an echocardiogram on me, which looked fine, and also had me do a cat scan to see my calcium score. My score came back 2.5. The specialist wasn’t worried about that. He said anything over a zero isn’t good, but my number was low and he wasn’t concerned. He told me to basically just lose weight and watch my diet. The specialist also told me not to bother taking the aspirin any longer. I asked him about the statin and he said it wasn’t necessary unless we saw that calcium score continue to grow over time.
So then I have a follow up with my primary, and he basically insisted on starting me on a statin. He said his calcium score was lower than mine and that he started himself on a statin immediately. He wanted me to take the lowest dose of Lipitor, and when I pushed back (because of what the specialist said), he pretty much insisted I start taking it, and then said I could just take a half dose daily and still get a great benefit from it.
So for the last few months I’ve been taking a half dose of the lowest dose of Lipitor, but feel like maybe I should’ve consulted with the specialist before starting the new med.
What are you thoughts?

2023.03.22 07:27 gong_li_ Social engagement in five month old?
I want to preface this with the fact that I KNOW I’m most likely being overly scrutinising but my eldest son is autistic (and he is the best thing ever) so I feel like I might be a little more attuned to these things than your average parent 😂 BUT I consequently am not sure what a ‘typically’ developing baby looks like lol. I know that no two babies can be compared but I think it’s reasonable to be on the lookout for any early signs just in case he does require early intervention like his brother, and statistically he does have a higher likelihood of being autistic than your average baby due to a diagnosed full sibling.
Our second son (5mo) I am pretty confident is neurotypical as there are quite a few very obvious differences between him & his older brother (2yo ASD) even at this young age. His eye contact seems great & he is definitely a lot more vocal & appears a lot more interested in other people & his surroundings. Of course I have looked at the milestones & I think I can safely say he is meeting them, I’m just not sure of the consistency!
For example: his eye contact is vastly increased compared to his brother, but it’s not 100% of the time. It seems normal to me, I don’t feel the need to look into peoples eyes 24/7 but yeah, he is definitely still often distracted by fans, bright lights, etc. But he will (most of the time) be looking at me when I’m speaking, singing, changing him, nursing etc. which is a noticeable difference from his brother.
Another example is babbling - again he does this heaps more than his brother did, & has engaged in occasional ‘reciprocal conversations’ with us, but again it’s definitely not super super consistently. He also does not always look over at the sound of our voice, & is not yet demonstrating much joint attention (although I think it might still be a bit early for that).
ANYWAY all this to say - I guess I’m asking what social engagement & communication skills would you expect of a five month old? Of course I know he will be fine either way but if he is showing any delays I’d love to know ASAP as early intervention has been a game changer for his brother :) TIA!

2023.03.22 07:27 Ancient-Bar-9156 A fall guys fanmade movie plot (part 1 of ?)
Fall guys movie plot part 1 (fake, takes place in season 6) Silent has never been good at fall guys. Ever since silent started fall guys, silent has never gotten a single win. So silent did what everyone would do and make a shop where you can spend crowns to get cool costumes, emotes, celebrations, and pattern. Years later, pink, a new player, has joined the game, heading that new content is available. Pink decides to play a game of solos, pink is then put into a lobby with a lot of pros, but he is still determined, pink then runs through gate crash and barely makes it, then a game of stomping grounds starts. Pink sees the rhinos and is scared, pink runs around the map aimlessly trying to avoid the rhinos, pink makes it out alive and starts playing big fans. Pink runs through the map, getting first place in the process, then it is a game or hex a gone. Pink doesn't know what he is supposed to do. But after falling through a layer know exactly what to do. He runs through the tiles, and eventually get's to the bottom layer. It is him against a rainbow water. Pink griefs the rainbow water and wins his first crown. Pink, being overjoyed since he won his first game, wants to play more. Mean while, banana, silent's right hand man, informs silent that someone has just won a crown. Silent then tells banana to get that crown from him. Banana does as silent asks and goes to visit pink. Pink is about to start a new game when banana teleports in front of him and tells pink that there is a shop where pink can spend his crown. Pink then goes to the shop with banana and looks at the shop and is overwhelmed with costumes and patterns. He then see the pineapple party skin and wants it, but he doesn't have enough crowns to buy it. He then leaves the shop and banana reports back to silent and says that he wants to save up for a costume. Silent is mad at first, but then realizes that they can get more crowns from that, so silent decides to wait. Part 2, coming soon.

2023.03.22 07:27 throwRagip21 20M] with my best friend [19F], we had sex all weekend and she is acting unsure of our friendship dynamics now
Cindy and I have been friends for about 2 years now. At first we weren't so close, but the past year she and I got a lot closer and we are best friends now. We share a couple mutual friends which is how we met, but they have been treating her not so great.
They have made fun of her looks/the way she acts all because they think she has a little extra weight on her. She used to be funny and outgoing, but she's shy and quiet now. In regards to that I cut off all those friends because I didn't tolerate them making fun of her.
When they saw how close we were they tried making fun of me for liking her ans they tried getting her to stop talking to me by telling her I thought she was ugly, etc (which is definitely not true at all. She didn't believe me when I tried to change her mind and it took me a while to get her to believe me.
Then I started really falling in love with her. I started complimenting her beauty and trying to be more flirty with her. She has the most beautiful sky color eyes and she is just my type. Her response is obviously "you're only saying that to be nice and make me feel better".
We hung out this past weekend and I borrowed a friends beach house and I took her on a little getaway together. I made my move and at first she was really shy since I was her 1st, but I gave her space and she got comfortable for the time and we had sex. The whole weekend she and I spent it in bed together just laying on each other and talking or just having sex.
After the fact, she asked why I chose to do that for her and I was honest. She said she felt too 'fat and ugly' for me and that I could do better. I got kinda bothered by her talking that way and I told her that I really thought she was beautiful and that I chose her because I like her and am attracted to her.
Now she's been acting kind of shy and she still doesn't fully believe I like her. She does flirt with me now, but at the same time she asked how are we gonna deal with being friends and sleeping together and she keeps doubting herself. How can I help her fully understand I chose her Because I love the way she is and that I don't want her to change anything?

2023.03.22 07:27 RadarSmith Random day 109 thoughts
Basically what the title says: this is day 109 for me. I was talking with a friend just now that I hadn’t spoken to since before I started and I just wanted to list a few things that came up.
1) I’m losing weight I need to lose. This is not surprising; suddenly not drinking 18-24 beers a night does wonders for the waistline.
2) My skin looks a lot better. I’m a pretty big guy even without the full keg and tend to redden naturally, but by and large I’m not getting ridiculously flushed all day. That one did surprise me; I knew that was a sign of alcoholism, but I never noticed it on my self until it reduced signifigantly.
3) I feel less gross in general. Obviously not being in a constant of being hungover does wonders, but I noticed that now that most of the gunk has left my system that I’m sweating much less and don’t develop a ‘sheen’.
4) Its no longer a painful daily battle. Make no mistake, I do still feel temptations and I’m not out of the woods yet. But they are more sporadic and far less powerful; its not the daily fight I had my entire drive home from work to grab booze on the way home, and I don’t sit shaking in my apartment fighting with myself about getting more.
5) My twin sister and I have definitely rebuilt our previously close relationship. Beforehand she knew that calling me at night or on the weekends (or me calling her) would catch me in some state of inebriation, which was taxing for her, and while I tried not to feel this way I did resent the way she (justifiably) played ‘babysitter’ on the phone.
Some current issues:
1) Insomnia. Yeah, this one is still going strong. I do feel more rested in the morning, since I’m actually sleeping instead of just lying unconcious, but I’m still only really getting 5 hours of sleep on a good day.
2) Still dealing with massive social anxiety. I started retreating from social events even before covid started, and in the last three years I’ve basically been agoraphobic outside of going to work. I left the Navy at just the start of covid, and even before the Navy I was a frat guy, and I, to my embarressment, realize I don’t really remember how to socialize without a pre-structured social group that drinks a lot. I currently have no longing for boozy gatherings (my alcoholism was 3.5 years into the ‘drinking heavily alone’ stage when I started my current run at sobriety), but I honestly don’t know where to go from here.
Overall, I’m happy with the progress I’ve made. But I’m still learning where to go from here.

2023.03.22 07:27 Least_Elk_9532 How to become comfortable with acceptance?
I know for type 4’s rejection is a big fear, but what about acceptance and appreciation from others ?
I’m a 4w3, and while I do love attention and recognition, I feel that people are lying when they genuinely appreciate me . I know it sounds stupid but it’s so true . I feel that deep down I’m so odd that if someone does like me it’s not the real me, it must be something they misinterpreted about me . I want to become as comfortable with acceptance as I have come to expect rejection . It’s like something in my mind can’t connect genuineness with “fitting in”. I hate feeling rejected however, but acceptance feels so odd and I hate that i feel that way when it’s something I desire so much.
Anyone else feel me?

2023.03.22 07:27 Snoo_68209 GDC collectors edition opportunity
I’m at GDC and iam8bit has the collectors edition for sale, as well as the soundtrack. Is the collectors edition worth the money? I know it has an art book, what else does it have?
