2023.05.30 21:34 RamboBambiBambo [TotK] Anyone else wonder what we might see as DLC equipment options?

So LoZ: TotK is going to have DLC. And going off of how DLC was in BotW, I cannot help but wonder what new equipment items we may see added to the roster for TotK's gear in the form of new weapons, bows, shields, and armor that may be bundled into any of the DLC packs coming around.
So I cannot help but theorize and predict that we may get any of the following -





And there you have it.
Just figured I would share my expectations of what we could see as DLC legacy items coming to Tears of the Kingdom in the coming year and how I would have some of them provide a bonus effect.
Thoughts anyone?

2023.05.30 15:07 monikacherokee [SPOILERS S3] Something is hidden in Dark's time...

- Why do we die?
- The dead are never truly dead. Maybe they’re not here, now. But everything that once lived, lives on forever. In the eternity of time.
If there is something that matters in Dark, it is time. But not only because of the trips made through it... There is an aspect related to time that has gone unnoticed and is more important in the story than we might think at first: The time frame in which events take place.
In the narrative, two main periods can be distinguished (without taking into account the years): the week from June 20 to 27 and the week from November 4 to 12. We also have a period of three days in September (21, 22 and 23) and several individual days (it is not possible to determine exactly when some of them happen)
Of these periods, there is one that is special because of the symbology it hides and that can be key in the narrative. We refer to the time in which the first season takes place: November…
One of the things that really attracts attention in the first episodes is the skeleton suit that Mikkel is wearing. Taking the dates into account, it is inevitable to associate it with a festivity that has been gaining importance in Germany since the 1990s: Halloween.
In addition, in southern Germany (also in Austria), Catholics extend the celebration from October 30 to November 8. They call it “Seelenwoche”, which means “All Souls Week”. These days serve to remember deceased relatives and attend religious services in honor of the saints.
However, in Dark these celebrations are not explicitly alluded to, despite there being subtle indications, such as: Mikkel's costume, Jana's visit to Mads' grave, or various details throughout the series refering to "ghosts" or the "beyond" (see link)
This omission may not be accidental, but Jantje is using it as a narrative resource called "paralepsis" with which, offering half information, as a clue, she intends to call attention to precisely what is omitted. It is a “relevant omission” with which she subtracts details from the work that are apparently uninteresting and, nevertheless, they constitute indications hiding and revealing at the same time the story to which they refer, configuring the work as an enigma.
To understand the importance of this "relevant omission" regarding the moment in which the first season of Dark takes place, we have to immerse ourselves in the culture from which the symbol of the triqueta comes from, since Halloween has its origins in a Celtic holiday: the Samhain.
Celts did not understand time as a finite line. On the contrary, in their understanding of the Universe, it was considered as an infinite cyclical process. Celtic time is conceived as a circular path that always returns to the same position.
In the past, Celtic communities only observed two seasons: summer and winter (light and dark, life and death). Their year was divided around four lunar festivities that celebrated agricultural and livestock cycles: "Imbolc", "Bealtaine", "Samhain" and “Lughnasa”. There were also four solar festivities corresponding to the equinoxes (spring - "Ostara" and autumn - "Mabon") and the solstices (summer - "Litah" and winter - "Yule"), although these were of lesser importance.
The lunar festivities are also known as "cross-quarter day" as they are located at the midpoint between the equinoxes and the solstices. In this way, the eight festivities mentioned above (known as "Sabbats") mark the astronomical milestones of the Earth's orbit around the Sun.
Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the descent of the herds to winter pastures. It marks the start of the "Celtic New Year", separating the "light half" from the "dark half" of the year.
Currently, it is usually celebrated on November 1, although, according to some sources, formerly it lasted nine days, divided into three blocks of three days each and in the center of all of them the day of Samhain. In addition, it would not coincide with a specific date because it was celebrated on the new moon closest to the astronomical midpoint between the autumnal equinox and the winter solstice. Earth reaches this midpoint on November 8.
Samhain is believed to have been the pagan Celtic festival of the dead, and over time Samhain and All Saints' Day influenced each other and eventually syncretized into the modern Halloween.
The origins of the celebration date back to the Celtic peoples who inhabited pre-Christian Ireland over 2,000 years ago, and it is associated with many important events in Irish mythology. In the earliest literary records of the holiday, Samhain was characterized by large gatherings and parties and was the time when the ancient burial mounds, which were considered portals to the “Otherworld”, were opened. Some accounts suggest that on Samhain bonfires were made and offerings or sacrifices were made.
Samhain was a liminal or threshold festival, in which, according to Irish mythology, the border between this world and the other was diluted, which meant that supernatural beings such as spirits or fairies, called "Aes Side" (considered by scholars, remnants of pagan gods and nature spirits) could more easily enter our world through portals opened to the "Otherworld".
But also the souls of the dead relatives returned to visit their homes, just as those of the deceased during that year traveled to the "Otherworld" during that night when the veil between the present, the past and the future disappeared.

With the name of "Otherworld" ("Orbis Alia") reference is made in Celtic mythology to the fairy world that coexists with that of human beings. It has been interpreted as an expansive world with numerous domains and kingdoms within it, and is home to many beings (gods, fairies and spirits of all kinds, along with the souls of the dead)
In the Irish mind-set, the "Otherworld" is neither Hell nor Heaven in the sense in which we now consider it. Rather this "Paradise" is a land of eternal youth and bounty, and a place accessible, with difficulty, to the living.
Many of the ancient tales tell of humans gaining access to the "Otherworld". Sometimes they were invited or summoned there by some god or spirit, sometimes they were kidnapped by one of the Otherworlders, and some people entered the "Otherworld" of their own accord during those times of the year when the walls between their world and "Otherworld" were lowered (as during Samhain and Beltane)
The portals to the "Other World" were found in nature and they used to be in caves or at the base of hills, on cliffs... It is also believed that the patches of mist could have some opening to the "Otherworld" within them.
One of the best-known portals is the Oweynagat cave (known as the "Gate to Hell"), near Rathcroghan (Cruachan), the oldest Celtic archaeological complex where the first legends related to Samhain are located. What's more, many people believe that this "Gate to Hell" could be the place where Samhain originated.
The entrance to the Oweynagat cave
The "Otherworld" is sometimes located under the burial mounds, dolmens and other megalithic monuments. Thus, we have the "Sídhe": underground worlds located under mounds of earth or ruins that serve as a refuge for fairies. In this way, stories circulate throughout Ireland about Knocks (from the Irish "Cnoc", meaning "hollow hill") inside which live extensive fairy communities ruled by a king or queen.
In many Old Irish manuscripts, the "Otherworld" is located beyond the Western Sea.
One of the great treasures of the Irish "Otherworld" was a ship that moved across the sea under the power of its pilot's thoughts. This mythological object was called "Ocean Sweeper" (Aigean Scuabadoir) and was brought from the "Otherworld" by the heroic Lugh, later becoming the property of the ocean god Manannan Mac Lir (first ancestor of the human race and god of the dead). He was responsible for transporting the dead heroes to "Tir Tairnigiri" (The Promised Land), where they would find their final resting place in the "Otherworld" located somewhere in the West.
Likewise, according to Gallic myths, once the souls had left their bodies, they went to the northwestern coast of Gaul and there they embarked towards ancient Britain. When they wanted to cross the sea, the souls went to the houses of the sailors, at whose doors they knocked insistently and desperately. The sailors then left their homes and took the dead to their destination in ghostly ships.
Apples and hazelnuts played an especially important role for the first Celts, which is why they were considered foods from the "Other World". The apple symbolized life and immortality, it was the talisman that allowed access to the "Otherworld" and gave the power to predict the future.
In Celtic mythology, the apple tree is the quintessential "Otherworld" tree. It is believed that an apple tree grows in its center whose fruit has magical properties.
Additionally, apples serve as a graceful food offering that helps spirits travel safely as they pass through the veil between the mundane realms.
For the Celts, trees were of great importance, but the most sacred of all was the oak, which represented the "Axis Mundi". The oak was a symbol of connection to the spiritual world, its roots piercing the subterranean realms of the "Otherworld" while its branches reached the heavens.
The oaks also provided an important food: Acorns. The acorn, being a seed, contains both the memory of those that have passed and the promise of those to come, symbolizing the cycle of life and the seasons. They were considered a symbol of growth related to life, representing longevity, immortality, rebirth...
Birds are a powerful force in Celtic mythology, often symbolizing the flight of spirits or the guiding for souls in their transit to the "Otherworld."
The Celts thought that birds were the reincarnation of the souls of the dead, so they could be messengers from the "Other World".
The female characters, especially the witches, are very often associated with birds.

Next we are going to detail the existing analogies between this Celtic mythology and the story of Dark:
- The title of the series is related to the moment in which it begins: Samhain, the entry into the "dark time" of the year.
- Characters travel to "another world" through a cave.
-When Mikkel enters the cave, he does so guided by a Jonas who comes from another time.
- Mads, Erik and Yasin are kidnapped by a Helge who comes from another time.
- The members of “Sic Mundus” live underground, under the orders of Adam. After, their lair is in the ruins of the nuclear power plant (Remembering the "Cnocs")
- The "sacrifice" is mentioned by several characters.
- We can see apples in many places: it appears in the intro of the series, on the wallpaper in the bunker, with Noah on several occasions, in various fruit bowls (at Ines Kahnwald's 1986 house, at Egon's 1953 house, at Bernard Doppler's house, at Adam's lair, at Alt-Martha's house, at the attic room of the Tannhaus factory…)
- Acorns and birds are also very present elements in the narrative.

EPILOGUE - Death and astronomical events
Curiously, although it is not mentioned in the series, three astronomical events take place during the story: the summer solstice (June 21), the autumnal equinox (September 23) and the last "quarter-crossing" (November 8)... Three of the " Sabbat” of the Celtic year…
June 27 is also a special date as it is the day the sun sets the latest.
All these dates are important in Dark: Mikkel's death takes place on June 21 and Katharina's death on September 23. The Apocalypse happens on June 27 in Adam's world and on November 8 in Eva's world.
Finally, all the characters in both worlds “vanish” on November 8, the day Sonja, Marek and Charlotte should have died. Exactly the "quarter-crossing" day of Samhain...

So, it is inevitable to reach this point without asking the question... Could we understand the story of Dark from a supernatural perspective? Are the worlds of Adam and Eve the "Otherworld" of the origin world? Would Jonas and Martha be "angels" as Marek says?
"Why do we die?..."

Common Chimney Problems in Medford and How to Fix Them


Welcome to United Masonry and Construction's guide on common chimney problems in Medford and how to fix them. As experienced professionals in the field, we understand the importance of a well-maintained chimney for both the safety and functionality of your home.
In this article, we will discuss the most common issues homeowners face with their chimneys and provide practical solutions to address these problems effectively. Whether you're dealing with a chimney leak, draft issues, or structural concerns, we've got you covered.

Chimney Leaks: Identifying and Resolving the Issue

One of the most common problems homeowners face with their chimneys is leaks. Water infiltration can cause significant damage to both the interior and exterior of the chimney. To identify a chimney leak, look for signs such as water stains on the ceiling, peeling wallpaper, or a musty smell in the vicinity.
To fix a chimney leak, start by inspecting the chimney cap, flashing, and masonry joints for any signs of damage or deterioration. Replace or repair damaged components and ensure a watertight seal. Applying a waterproofing sealant to the exterior of the chimney can also provide an additional layer of protection against moisture.

Creosote Buildup: Preventing Fire Hazards

Creosote buildup is a common issue in chimneys that use wood-burning appliances. This sticky, flammable substance accumulates on the chimney walls over time and poses a significant fire hazard. To prevent creosote buildup, it's crucial to have your chimney regularly cleaned and inspected by a professional chimney sweep.
During a chimney cleaning, the sweep will remove the creosote deposits using specialized tools and brushes. They will also check for any obstructions or structural issues that may hinder proper ventilation. Regular maintenance and cleaning will ensure your chimney operates safely and efficiently.

Draft Problems: Ensuring Optimal Performance

Draft problems can cause smoke to back up into your home instead of exiting through the chimney. This can result in poor indoor air quality and an unpleasant living environment. Draft issues are often caused by chimney height, insufficient flue size, or obstructions in the flue.
Chimney Repairs
To address draft problems, consider installing a draft inducer or a chimney cap with a built-in draft-increasing mechanism. These devices help enhance airflow and improve draft efficiency. Additionally, make sure your chimney flue is properly sized to accommodate the appliances it serves.

Masonry Damage: Repairing Cracked Chimneys

Over time, masonry chimneys can develop cracks and other forms of damage due to exposure to weather elements. Cracked masonry not only compromises the structural integrity of the chimney but also allows water to penetrate, leading to further deterioration.
To fix cracked chimneys, it's essential to enlist the services of a professional masonry contractor. They will assess the extent of the damage and employ suitable repair techniques, such as tuckpointing or chimney rebuilding. Repairing masonry damage promptly will help prevent more severe issues down the line.

Chimney Cap Issues: Keeping Out Unwanted Guests

A chimney cap serves as a protective barrier against animals, debris, and water intrusion. However, chimney caps can become damaged or dislodged over time, allowing unwanted guests such as birds, squirrels, or raccoons to enter your chimney.
Inspect your chimney cap regularly and ensure it is securely in place. If you notice any damage, replace the cap promptly to prevent animals from nesting or debris from obstructing the chimney. A well-functioning chimney cap will help maintain proper ventilation and prevent animal-related issues.

Chimney Crown Problems: Protecting Your Chimney

The chimney crown is the concrete or masonry top surface that covers the chimney. It plays a crucial role in protecting the chimney structure from water infiltration. However, chimney crowns can crack or deteriorate over time, allowing water to seep into the chimney and cause damage.
To fix chimney crown problems, a professional chimney contractor can inspect the crown for any cracks or deterioration. They will apply a waterproof sealant or perform crown rebuilding if necessary. Maintaining a sound chimney crown is essential for preserving the longevity and integrity of your chimney.

Flue Obstructions: Clearing the Way

Flue obstructions, such as bird nests or debris, can hinder proper airflow and lead to inefficient chimney performance. Additionally, obstructions increase the risk of carbon monoxide entering your home.
If you suspect a flue obstruction, it's crucial to address the issue promptly. Contact a professional chimney sweep to remove the obstruction safely. They will also inspect the flue liner for any damage and make the necessary repairs.

Damper Dysfunction: Regulating Airflow

The damper is a device located above the firebox that controls the airflow in your chimney. Damper dysfunction can result in difficulty starting or extinguishing fires and poor draft performance.
To fix damper issues, it's best to consult a professional chimney technician. They will assess the condition of the damper and recommend repair or replacement if needed. A properly functioning damper ensures efficient ventilation and enhances your overall fireplace experience.

Smoky Fireplaces: Improving Efficiency

If you're experiencing a smoky fireplace, it can be an indication of an underlying problem with your chimney. Factors such as a blocked chimney cap, an improperly sized flue, or excessive creosote buildup can contribute to smoky fires.
Chimney Repair Services
To improve the efficiency of your fireplace and reduce smoke issues, have your chimney inspected by a professional. They will identify the root cause of the problem and implement the necessary solutions, such as cleaning, repairs, or flue adjustments.

Chimney Settling: Addressing Structural Concerns

Chimney settling occurs when the chimney foundation sinks or shifts, potentially leading to structural instability. Signs of chimney settling include cracks in the chimney exterior or interior, leaning chimneys, or separated chimney from the house.
If you notice any signs of chimney settling, it's crucial to consult a professional masonry contractor immediately. They will assess the extent of the settling and recommend appropriate repair methods, such as underpinning or foundation stabilization. Addressing chimney settling promptly is vital to avoid further structural damage.

Chimney Waterproofing: Preventing Water Damage

Water is one of the biggest culprits of chimney damage. Waterproofing your chimney is a proactive measure to protect it from water infiltration and subsequent deterioration.
To waterproof your chimney, a professional chimney contractor will apply a specialized waterproofing sealant to the exterior masonry. This sealant creates a protective barrier against moisture while still allowing the chimney to breathe. Regularly maintaining the waterproofing sealant will ensure long-lasting protection for your chimney.

Chimney Sweeping: Regular Maintenance for Longevity

Regular chimney sweeping is essential for maintaining optimal performance and extending the lifespan of your chimney. Over time, soot, creosote, and debris accumulate in the flue, posing fire hazards and obstructing airflow.
Hiring a professional chimney sweep to clean your chimney annually or as recommended by experts will remove dangerous deposits and ensure proper ventilation. Regular chimney maintenance significantly reduces the risk of chimney-related problems and enhances safety.

Chimney Odor: Eliminating Unpleasant Smells

Unpleasant odors emanating from your chimney can make your home uncomfortable. These odors can be caused by creosote buildup, moisture issues, animal infestations, or other factors.
To eliminate chimney odors, start by having your chimney professionally cleaned to remove any creosote or debris contributing to the smell. Additionally, address any moisture-related issues by inspecting the chimney for leaks and ensuring proper ventilation. If animal infestation is suspected, consult a professional to remove the animals and seal any entry points.

Chimney Inspections: Professional Assessments

Regular chimney inspections are crucial for identifying and addressing potential issues before they become major problems. A professional chimney inspection includes a thorough assessment of the chimney's interior and exterior, checking for any signs of damage, blockages, or safety concerns.
By scheduling regular chimney inspections, you can stay proactive in maintaining your chimney's condition and address any emerging problems promptly. This preventive approach will save you time, money, and potential headaches in the long run.

Chimney Restoration: Restoring Functionality and Aesthetics

If your chimney has suffered extensive damage or is showing signs of aging, chimney restoration can breathe new life into it. Chimney restoration involves repairing, rebuilding, or enhancing various components of the chimney, ensuring both its functionality and aesthetics.
Contact a professional chimney restoration company to assess the condition of your chimney and provide expert recommendations for restoration. Whether it's repointing the mortar joints, replacing damaged bricks, or installing a new chimney cap, restoration services will revitalize your chimney's appearance and performance.


United Masonry and Construction hopes that this comprehensive guide on common chimney problems in Medfordand their solutions has been informative and helpful. Regular maintenance, prompt repairs, and professional inspections are key to ensuring the longevity and safety of your chimney. Remember, it's always best to consult a qualified chimney professional for any chimney-related concerns to guarantee the best results.

2023.05.29 22:42 Ed_Derick_ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story review. Boy, that escalated quickly

Wow this was cool. At first I was kinda bored and confused with the plot, but then I got engaged into it, and god damn the 3rd act is miles better than the first two. At start I was like "Man this is probably gonna be 6/10 for me" but then things started to escalate, freaking VADER showed up, things just kept getting better and better, action sequences kept getting bigger, Nostalgia starting hitting (Nostalgia for a couple of movies I watched like a month ago, nonsense, I know) , VADER SHOWED UP AGAIN! And the movie ends with the perfect cliff hanger, literally seconds away from the opening of A New Hope. Now I think it is a 9/10.
I loved the care with making everything accurate, like the aesthetics, the suits, the ships, the aliens, the sound effects, it's clear this was all made with love for the OT. It doesn't feel like something new, it feels like "Star Wars RTX ON", except for the cgi for Tarkin and Leia. Yeah... they were rough, specially Tarkin which was extremely distracting, it's a shame we didn't had deepfake tech back then. Anyway.
The characters weren't that engaging for me? They were OKAY, just your classic band of rebels. K was cool, and all his jokes landed for me, the blind guy was nice tho the "The force is with me I'm one with the Force" thing gets kinda repetitive when the guy says it constantly. I think it would be better to have him say it at the beginning of the movie like once or twice, so his friend can say it again when he dies. Just my personal taste. Also I found it weird how his friend just accepted his death, I'm pretty sure he could just run away from the granade and make it, guess he had nothing left to live for.
I felt bad when the pilot died, dude basically is the reason this whole operation worked, and he got mind-fucked by that freaky octopus thing and still managed to keep it together throughout the movie. What a hero.
I REALLY liked the cinematography, there are some amazing shots here. I already knew this director, Gareth Edwards, from Godzilla 2014 (I'm a huge Monsterverse fan in case you didn't know) so I was already expecting good cinematography, specially uncut, long take shots. Oh and the effects of the ships traveling at light speed were so good, they have that "cartoony" feel of the OT but somehow they still look cool with modern cgi. I loved the shots used to convey the size of the Star Destroyers, and the size of the Death Star. I feel like Gareth used what he learned in Godzilla, how to show the scale of something massive. Man, the Death Star causing an eclipse was like... a work of art. Wallpaper worthy. It's almost like the Death Star is a character as well.
I liked the villain played by Ben Mendelsohn, fun to watch, guy always nails it when it comes to bad guys. I liked the score as well, I just found it weird how it teases us with "The Force theme", from when Luke is looking at the Tatooine sunset. It's like trying to sneeze here, you can tell it's coming but then it just doesn't come out. Weird decision. Guess they wanted to make something recognizable but original at the same time. Imperial March is always a welcome surprise.
I got one question about the "lore" of it all though, about Saw Gerrera. How can he be against the Empire, but against the Rebellion at the same time? What?? Is there a Rebellion 2.0 that disagrees with the first one?
Anyway, the scene at the end with Vader jus tearing through those soldiers was amazing, genuinely made me feel scared for the guys, so freaking cool. And I can't stress how enough how much I like when one movie leads DIRECTLY into another. No severe time jump, just minutes or hours away. Also I almost got emotional when I noticed the aesthetics of the ship were getting more and more similar to how it is in A New Hope.

2023.05.29 21:54 Carl-Metaltaku [Windows PC ][2005 -2007.] First person shooter

A game I vaguely remember. You are in a place that looks like hell, and you jump from stone platform to stone platform, avoiding the lava floor. Your goal is to reach the end and enter a cave entrance to continue your journey through hell. You have a weapon that resembles an M16. When you fall into the lava, the perspective changes from first person to third person, and you see your character die. In some instances, the character makes strange sounds that resemble an orgasm and lies down on the lava, which is one of the reasons why I think it may be a mod or a low-quality game. When you return to the menu or game over screen, you see a skull gif at the top, with fire coming out of its mouth, accompanied by metal-like music. This game was played by my big brother sometime between 2005 and 2007.
Like in the titel from memory it looks like a Gold Source ore Source game and may be a mod. Any help to track this game is welcome

2023.05.29 09:15 Qrow-Branwen89 Lappland is the best I can't escape her

(I mark this as spoiler because of things in the Il Siracusano event)
I downloaded the game because of Lappland 3 years ago and she has been living rent free in my head since I pulled her
I'm down bad atrocious for this woman and I can't figure out why.
I pretty much never go full monke brain for any character of any game or anime, and I'm a massive weeb, but bro, Lappland has me by the leash, I can't escape her, I have her as my phone and PC wallpaper, I take her on any mission the game will let me use her
She was already the perfect aesthetic for me, but with the Il Siracusano event I've fallen even harder for her.
Her personality, intelligence and character development had me on my knees the entire event, I rarely even bother to read Arknights, I know the story is super good but there is too much text and I don't have the time, I just watch Lore videos later or check the wiki.
I tried however to read this event just because of Lappland and it was the best thing ever, not only because of her but other characters as well, but yeah, Lappers was the best part of it.
When she went to Texas to give her a chocolate IN PRISON and then it turned out it was THE ONE SHE HATED, that was way too funny I was like "Please god turn me into an Arknights character and let me marry this woman"
Then TWICE she went to her father by MURDERING EVERYONE in the Saluzzo HQ John Wick style. You would figure they would just let her go through the second time, but no, she had to kill everyone AGAIN, like how many people does Alberto need to hire on a weekly basis????
And at the end she first beats Texas and then went to the wilderness to absolutely destroy Zaaro, bullying a DEMIGOD into submission like this woman is so fking HOT bro.
Also I really enjoyed her story and animations since it was exactly how I envisioned her since the beginning, like, having proper formal training and education but then cranked up the INSANE to 11, in the sense that even through her crazy fighting style and choices you can notice the traces of a ton of training and education, like there is a method to her madness.
And speaking of her madness, I don't think she is as insane as we talk about her, she grew up exactly as she was supposed to under Alberto's tutelage. It was Alberto who made mistakes in raising her, but like, she's the natural outcome of that kind of environment and education. She's super smart and strong.
I just wanted to vent my Lappdumb addiction since I now desire to be demolished by her massive truck.
