2021.12.04 18:56 BonJunzi Help with connecting
I know this problem has been addressed before but ive tried all fixes and none have worked for me. I bought the game and it ran perfectly on steam for 3 hours of game time but once I bought the swamps dlc and tried to go back into game im getting the infamous "Unkown error while checking multiplayer feature access". Ive tried deleting and redownloading, linking epic games store, verfying intgerity, setting a defualt web browser to get some window to show up all nada very frusterated dont know what to do.

2021.12.04 18:56 PowerLine92 I think she is playing me...
So I'm (26) and this girl I work with is (21). From the first day we met she has always stared at me and smiled and even when I catch her staring she would never look away she would always keep looking at me. Then she started to touch my arm and run her nails down them or just rub my arm. She was even using her finger to trace the words on the back of my vest. She sits very very close to me like thighs are touching. Even when we walk she is walking very close to me to where her hand is almost holding mine. She had me help her in the bathroom to unzip her leotard and to re zip it for her. Then later on she said the zipper was messed up and she had me fix it. As i was fixing it my friend who is a lesbian come up and is like whats going on here then my friend who is also my supervisor came over and started smiling. My lesbian friend said to the girl oh i thought you didnt like girls and she never denied it. But im getting mixed signals to uf she is just trying to be friends with me. Not just that the fact that she told me she doesn't have very many friends she only has one and that's it.
She would have me wait for everyone to leave and she started pulling on her shirt so I thought she was telling me something is on my shirt so I said what and she laughs and says she is cold and her nipples are hard and then asked me if I noticed. That was a little sexual to me. I wouldn't tell or ask my friend to look at my nipples. Even when I drove her over to get food at our job she told me to be careful backing in because last time I hit it from the back. When she said that I wasn't sure if she knew what she said or what. But I took that as her flirting.
The night before last I stayed to work with her and she let me take her phone she didn't try to take it back or anything and all she says to me is don't look at my nudes which to me means look at my nudes I'm not gonna stop you. She has a lot of sexy pictures in her phone of her in just a bra and panties and some if her just in panties.
She also likes to take lots if random pictures and videos of me. She even told me she posted them on her Instagram and she said her other friend said she is happy she made a new friend. She also started calling me her friend. She offers to buy me things when we are out getting food at work or she is ordering food and having it delivered. I even left work caught the shuttle got in my car and drove to get her food last night. She sent me a text saying awww you're so sweet and how much she appreciates me. Am I being played or does she like me? Or am I just a friend to her?

2021.12.04 18:56 Ian_a_wilson Using Video Games or Visual/Audible Source-material for dream development.
| We talk a lot about the influences of video games and their impact on dream replay. The earliest known discussion on this topic came from Jeffery Goldsmith in an article in 1994 Wired Magazine article entitled, "This is your brain on Tetris" which coined the term 'The Tetris Effect'. This Is Your Brain on Tetris | WIRED |
The Tetris Effect or Tetris Syndrome occurs when a person plays Tetris for a long period of time, when they close their eyes to go to sleep, they still see the game and even continue to interact and play the game during premediate sleep. We know from research into hippocampal replay that this behavior increases during rest and is directly linked to how we learn and also consolidate long-term memories. The Tetris Effect is an early example of video game content influencing hippocampal replay during rest.
Research into replay with BrainGate with a game took place in a study from May, 2020 that used two human volunteers who had electrodes installed into their brain to study replay and learning in humans. What they discovered is just like Rat hippocampal studies, humans also evolved the same mechanism for learning and long-term memory consolidation. Place-cells in the hippocampus have firing sequences that can be recorded and then observe during dreaming 'replaying' as part of NREM1 sleep.
In Hippocampal replay studies on rats. Researchers used a similar method of installing electrodes to record place-cell firing sequences during a rat moving through a maze, then observed these same spike-pattern sequences repeating during sleep in ripples indicating the rat was dreaming of activities it preformed during the day.
When they disrupted 'replay' they discovered this impaired the rat's learning performance.
Source: The Role of Hippocampal Replay in Memory and Planning (nih.gov)
The role of dreaming has been studied in both humans and mammals. The reason why dreams occur stems from the need for long-term memory consolidation and learning through replay of waking events and the development of neural-pathways and synapses during REM. Before fMRI research, dream researchers observing the behavior of the hippocampus during sleep noted that it's behavior changed. Instead of taking information in during the day, the hippocampus started sending information back into the neocortex of the brain. This behavior lead some neuroscientists to conclude that this could explain some people cannot remember their dreams because the information from dreaming doesn't return back to the hippocampus and takes place in short-term memory.
If the hippocampus is the last to go to sleep, it could very well be the last to wake up, Andrillon said. "So, you could have this window where you wake up with a dream in your short-term memory, but since the hippocampus is not fully awake yet, your brain is not able to keep that memory," Andrillon told Live Science. Source: Why Can't We Remember Our Dreams? | RealClearScience
The problem with amensiac dreaming has been an area of interest for many dream researchers as to why some people can remember dreams, and other people cannot. There is one study that used fMRI imagining with people who had high-frequency dream recall and people who did not. What they discovered was another important clue relating to dream recall and that was the development of 'white-matter' density in HF dreamers vs lower density in LF dreamers.
There is substantial evidence in sleep and dream research that shows REM sleep and REM dreams play a role in the development of neural pathways and synapses. REM sleep puts stimulation of neural pathways into over-drive and is observed in REM sleep and babies as part of their cognitive development.
Source: Understanding REM Sleep in Babies | Pathways.org
During REM sleep, the brain prunes neural connections and develops new ones.
"We further show that dendritic calcium spikes arising during REM sleep are important for pruning and strengthening new spines. Together, these findings indicate that REM sleep has multifaceted functions in brain development, learning and memory consolidation by selectively eliminating and maintaining newly formed synapses via dendritic calcium spike-dependent mechanisms."
Source: REM sleep selectively prunes and maintains new synapses in development and learning | Nature Neuroscience
When we study dream frequency by age, the production of dream content is very high during the developing brain and begins to drastically decrease with age. This decrease shows that for many people by the age of 60, there is a 99.98% loss in dream recall.
Source: Variations in Dream Recall Frequency and Dream Theme Diversity by Age and Sex (nih.gov)
What studies like Tore Neilson presents is cognitive decline with dreaming as we age. Many people do not participate in the 3-5 dreams they have during sleep, so the lack of stimulation to regions like the medial prefrontal cortex stunts neural pathway development for dream recall and this region atrophies until people no longer dream at all. Cognitive atrophy and stunted dream development is only a concern though for people who want to participate in the nightly routine of dreaming.
Why this is important with regards to video games and their ability to shape and influence the content of our dreams, is many people who might want to explore this interesting phenomena of long-term memory consolidation and replay as a fun means to entertain oneself with dreaming when that replay is an interactive version of their favorite video game, is that many people do not realize that dreaming itself is a developmental skill and that the brain atrophies without stimulation from dreaming causing less neural pathway development in regions of the dreaming mind stunting dream recall, somatic sensory dream replay and even higher-cognitive functions such as self-awareness.
Dream researchers have been using video-games as a tool to help with dream development. It's self-evident for most that influences from our day 'replay' as dreams during sleep. You may have noticed dreams composed of influences from movies, TV shows, video games and activities during the day. The reason why some people have dreams that produce interactive-replays of games stems from the notion that the subconscious mind doesn't know what this information is, but pipes it through the same replay processes sorting out the information in a dream interactive replay.
Jayne Gackenback first wrote about video games and their influence on dreams in 2008.
Video Game Play Effects on Dreams: Self-Evaluation and Content Analysis Jayne Isabel Gackenbach, Beena Kuruvilla Eludamos. Journal for Computer Game Culture. 2008; 2; 2; 169-186
In analyzing the dreams of many high-frequency gamers many elements of the game incorporated into dream replay and the game itself showing up as themes in their dreams.
" This certainly seems to characterize the virtual world of many of today's games showing up in their dreams."

As such, more research has been used using video games for developing dreaming skills such as self-awareness or lucid dreaming.
Playing physically interactive video games is associated with lucid dreaming, study finds by Eric W. Dolan July 13, 2019in Cognitive Science
Marc Sestir, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Central Arkansas, and Jennifer Peszka, an associate professor of psychology at Hendrix College, became interested in the connection between video game play and lucid dreaming thanks to Peszka’s student Ming Tai — a gamer herself and co-author of the new study.
Source: Playing physically interactive video games is associated with lucid dreaming, study finds (psypost.org)
It turns out that lucid dreaming, or self-aware dreaming is linked to activity in the prefrontal cortex during sleep. That fMRI studies on people who claimed to lucid dream was observed when activity increased during 'lucid dreams' and this activity appeared in the prefrontal cortex vs non-lucid dreaming who during REM showed no activity.

There are lots of new insights into why we dream, the mechanics of dreaming and the importance of dreams with regards to our cognitive development, memory and learning. Many people enjoy dreaming but very few look at dreams as a developmental skill that can be fine-tuned to become more than just dreaming.
For example, using a video game for dream development can make the resulting dream themed in that game a lot of fun for a person who enjoys that game. Using movies, tv shows and other visual/audible sources can help set a fun theme or goal for an interactive dream replay.
As dreaming is a developmental skill that suffers from atrophy if one doesn't make an effort to participate, gamifying the dream development can not only help with improving the dream experience but can make this participation fun and entertaining.
Maybe dreaming wasn't so crazy after all? Some birds, all mammals and every human dreams. Why? It's part of our cognitive development, skill development and long-term memory consolidation. So strange that people give dreaming such a bad rap, when in truth, it's a very healthy part of sleep that can be tuned into an artform and entertainment system. Gamifying dreaming is just one way in which we can make this night-time routine more interesting and fun.

2021.12.04 18:56 zzing Does anyone else have issues copying text the first time?
Sometimes I will be switching back and forth between two applications using some nice alt-tab moves. I will select some text and C-c, and when I go to C-v in vscode for example, its the thing that was on the clipboard before.
I haven't found it having the same issue with C-insert / S-insert, but I don't use those very often and only notice this issue when it gets really annoying.

2021.12.04 18:56 penfrizzle Looking at buying a larger primary residence, does keeping the old one to rent out even make mathematical sense?
We owe $180k on our house that we could probably sell for $400k. We want to buy a larger house (we now have 3 kids) and it would probably be $550k.
We have an in-law apartment that we rent out for $900/month and we could probably rent the main house out of $2000/month.
I am not sure the best way to do the math to see if this makes sense and would love some help. Also, my loan term goal isn't grinding out monthly rent checks, but to have a couple of properties for my kids to inherit when I am dead in 30-40 years.
Option A: If we put all our equity into the second home, and thought about a 400k mortgage on our current house, it think it would be $2300/month @ 3% with insurance and interest. So I am dealing with some headaches and maintenance on the house and in-law apartment for $600/month. My other concern is even getting a loan for a property with no real rental history.
Option B: Sell current house, put all equity into house B, and eventually take equity out when a better rental property comes along.

2021.12.04 18:56 killermiller4444 I actually feel bad for Farrah the first 2 seasons
And 16 and pregnant. Debra was emotionally and physically abusive during her 16 and pregnant episode and during the start of Teen Mom. Farrah was a bratty, spoiled teen with an attitude but I can’t imagine being pregnant with a mother calling me a whore, bitch, and smacking me while pregnant. Then she downed her constantly during season 1, busting her lip season 2, not allowing her to grieve the loss of Derek, telling her she couldn’t take Sophia to see Derek’s family, etc. Debra acted like she was this supposed caring, Christian woman who took care of “baby,” but she was a terrible mother to her own child. I think Farrah would have been better off without her mom and without the show. Her and her mom both got way crazier as the seasons went on. She could have been slightly normal if she got out of that house, got some real therapy, and didn’t have cameras following her around making her famous.
