Kintaro sushi bar menu
Loading Screen Pops Up When I Click on Windows Button and Search Bar and Won't Go Away
2023.06.06 05:27 PlayerPin Loading Screen Pops Up When I Click on Windows Button and Search Bar and Won't Go Away
I am having a problem where I click on the Windows tab and the search bar and get a large loading screen where I am unable to do anything but alt+tab out since I would be unable to do anything otherwise. Waiting did not work for me either. Every part of my computer is functional except the Windows Button and the Search Bar. Help would be greatly appreciated to solve this problem. What the loading looks like whenever I click on the search bar.
It is the same for the Windows button, but I am ultimately able to see the Windows pop-up under the large loading screen albeit very fuzzy and left unable to interact with the menu.

2023.06.06 05:15 Apple2Forever Firecracker Chicken meetup! Monsoon Poon 5.45pm, Monday 12 June
$39 for all-you-can-eat spicy chicken with rice, naan, and a glass of milk or beer. Normal menu available for those not into spicy food (but not all-you-can-eat). Please be there in time to be seated by 6pm, meet up at the bar first.
If you're wondering about the date, Monsoon Poon was closed yesterday (King's Birthday) so Firecracker Chicken was postponed until next Monday.

2023.06.06 03:36 snacksonsnacks99 Adding a 2nd floor/room and using the same menu with different kitchens.
Our restaurant is scaling, and toast support has yet to give me a good solution for how to build the new menus.
We’ll have the same menu but different kitchens/bars and therefore different prep stations. They want me to do a deep copy and therefore double every menu items.
The issue I see with that is every time there is a price change a manager has to be sure to change both items prices. It’ll also create a headache with inventory management through bevspot. Lastly we wouldn’t be able to use counts on low items without allocating them to specific floors.
Has anyone found a good solution for this type of scaling?

2023.06.06 03:30 sam_co__ Razer Synapse 3.0 not detecting my Blade 15 2022
| || | submitted by sam_co__ to razer [link] [comments]
Been struggling with this for over a week now. My Synapse wont detect my Razer Blade 15. from the task bar it says please connect a device. I'm not able to change performance modes, or change keyboard lighting (i just like mine a solid color lol and want to go back to that) heres what I tried. Reset was done at the appropriate stages i.e. if something was removed/installed/etc.
- Read a post that vanguard could cause the issue, so removed vanguard and all associated games to isolate. - no change
- Modify and repair through Synapse. - no change
- Uninstall / reinstall - no change
- Run DISM and SFC- Open Command Prompt- Type: DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth- Wait for it to finish- Type: sfc /scannowWait for it to finish - no change
- Delete TEMP folders- Open Run by right-clicking Start and choosing it from the menu.-Type %temp% in the Run window and click OK.- When in File Explorer in the TEMP folder, select all files by pressing Ctrl + A keys.- Click Delete. - no change
- Razer Driver Cleanup Tool- Uninstall Synapse 3- If possible, unplug all Razer devices- Reboot the system- Download the Razer Driver Clean Up Tool: https://rzr.to/Tf53xj- Unzip and run the CleanupRazerDrivers.exe as Administrator- The window will close on its own. When it does, reboot the system again- Install Synapse 3- Plug in Razer devices- Update Synapse 3 as needed and reboot system as update requirement - no change
- There may have been other things i have tried, but cant recall at the moment. I did contact razer support and non of their troubleshooting helped to date
on a side note, not sure if related, but I cant log into to my machine with the camera anymore either. my guess is they might be related as they both stopped working around the same time

2023.06.06 03:09 MartinsRedditAccount With iPad OS Developer Beta 1, iPads can finally display Ultrawide resolutions over HDMI (rather than just DisplayPort).
Previously it would display at a (the nearest?) standard 16:9 resolution. DisplayPort wasn't affected.
For example 3840*2160 on my 3440x1440 monitor, resulting bad text and vector clarity, and obviously black bars.
I believe the problem might've been due to how resolutions are ordered when using HDMI, I noticed the same on my SteamDeck where it would have 3840*2160 listed above 3440x1440.
It's still 60hz though, and is relying on Apple's software being smart enough (PLEASE JUST GIVE A RESOLUTION MENU!).
Tested with iPad Pro 12.9" M1 + LG 34GK950F
The developer beta is actually available to everyone apparently, just enable it in the update settings! No profile or IPSW needed.

2023.06.06 02:54 desperate_enuff Food Centric Visit - Recommendations?
TLDR: Visiting SD later this year and looking for great food recommendations. Thanks in advance for any help you can give, greatly appreciated!
It’s been several years since I visited your great city and I’ve been planning a sort of celebratory return trip after a difficult year dealing with illness. I have been reading articles for a couple weeks and thought I had things pretty well sorted out, but then found this sub and have read a lot of differing opinions. We will be staying downtown for 5 days and budget isn’t too much of a concern but if there is a better meal that is cheaper I won’t pass that up. We will spend at least 3 of those days downtown due to commitments and don’t plan to rent a car but can get a Lyft/Uber as needed the other 2 days.
Sushi - I was thinking we would hit 2-3 spots and was all set to go to Ken Sushi Workshop and then one of Sushi Ota or Tadokoro, but seen a lot of people recommending Azuki and Soichi. Also considered Full Moon and Kinme Omakase, but don’t see them mentioned often at all. What is your top 5 sushi list?
Mexican - I was planning to grab tacos or burritos for lunch 3-4 of those days and had settled on The Taco Stand, Tacos El Gordo and Salud, but again I either don’t see those mentioned often or lot of comments they are overrated. What are your top 5 taco/burrito spots?
Ceviche - We really like ceviche (particularly Peruvian) and were planning to go to Crudo Cevicheria & Oyster Bar, but seeing lots of mentions of Karina’s. Where is the best ceviche?
Breakfast - This was the last thing I had not yet looked into, but given I’m doubting most of my selections figure I’ll just ask what are your favorite breakfast spots? Tend to like savory over sweet but either with a good cup of coffee will work.
Other - I was planning to splurge a little at least 2 nights and thought Callie and Campfire looked very good. I don’t see much negative about either so feeling fine about these but figured I would mention them. Is there a truly can’t miss restaurant we should prioritize for a nice dinner for 2?

2023.06.06 02:53 Destrae [Trip Report] March 8-24 (Tokyo/Yokohama/Kyoto). 16 day weeb dream vacation - Kingdom Hearts concert, JJK exhibit, so many arcades!
I wasn't going to do a trip write up at all, but I'm planning a return trip in the Fall and I realized some of the things I learned on my first trip might be useful for other people, so here we go! I don't often see post write ups from people who are specifically into rhythm games/ arcades/ anime stuff Dates: March 8 - 24, 2023 Background:
Planned this trip mostly for myself but one of my friends decided to tag along fairly last minute. I had planned to spend the whole trip in Tokyo but the one thing she wanted to do was Kyoto, so we added a side trip + a very pleasant day at a Ryokan. I used Wanderlog to plan (HIGHLY recommend, this site is amazing), and my basic daily itinerary was morning shrine > pick an area to explore and have 1-2 major things per day. The person I was travelling with ended up taking a long ass time to get ready each day, so most of my morning stuff got cut or rearranged. Costs:
I will fully admit I did not budget for food/ shopping, 100% vibes. I simply do not acknowledge what I spent
- Flight: $1,500 (Delta from MSP > SEA > Haneda. Direct from MSP had not resumed yet)
- Hotels: ¥314,000 (Roughly $2,300 USD for all 3 hotels total) [¥205,000 (Tokyu Stay Tsukiji, 15 nights) + ¥30,000 (Tokyu Stay Kyoto, 2 nights) + ¥79,000 (Kyokoyado Muromachi Yutone Kyoto, 1 night)]
- Shinkansen: ¥42,000 for 2 round trip tickets from Tokyo/Kyoto and back. Roughly $300 USD, machine did not take foreign CC only cash
- The Kingdom Hearts concert, I maxed out my luck on this trip and we were able to see this on it's last night in Tokyo. Absolutely incredible!!
- Sushi Yuu, Roppongi (omakase sushi for about ¥20,000 per person, we paid more with drinks)
- ShibuyaSky, the open air viewing makes the experience so much better, plus there's a bunch of different spots to hang out up on the observation deck
- Fushimi Inari, the whole shrine blew me out of the water, absolutely must experience in person
- TeamLabs Planets, so few things live up to the hype and this is one of them
- Golden Gai, the bars were so much fun, got the full experience of a salaryman pissing on the side of the konbini
- Caffeine- if you are addicted to non carbonated caffeine like I am be prepared to be disappointed. The monsters are only 40mg compared to America's 150mg+. I'm glad I brought caffeine pills
- Tsukiji market is really not worth going out of your way for, it's nice if you're near it but it's really just a fish market + insane lines for most of the food
- I'm still mad about how bad the food was at the Square Enix cafe is, at least we got coasters + placemats out of the deal. This was genuinely my only bad experience in Japan
- Everything on this subreddit told me that people in Tokyo don't really care about tattoos, however they do really seem to care about colored hair. I have very long, bright ombre hair and I was a bit of a sideshow attraction, including people taking photos of me in public multiple times. Probably the most frustrating part of the trip was being stared at constantly
- Japanese thrift stores love old American clothes, I was definitely let down by the majority of these
- Buy anime stuff
- Play rhythm games
- Go thrift shopping
- See cherry blossoms
- Collect shrine stamps (goshuin)
- TAX FREE SHOPPING: This has to be first because no one mentions it?? There are 2 types of tax free, discount and rebate. Everywhere has a minimum for tax free. Don Quijote you have to go to the separate tax free counter, and they will seal the bags shut. You're not supposed to use the tax free items in the country - I didn't know this and did it anyways? There seems to be no repercussions unless they open your bag and count every individual KitKat. I had to open the bags to repack everything anyways. The places that do rebates are generally malls, you bring your receipt + passport and they'll give you the 10% back in cash (minus a fee). When you get to the airport, you scan your passport after you drop your luggage, indicating you made tax free purchases. You do not need to keep your receipts anymore
- Don Quijote does sell luggage but Ginza Karen is cheaper
- Besides the standard things that every single trip report has (get a suica, you'll walk a lot, etc etc), the biggest thing I learned is not to go to an area without at least 1-2 specific goals in mind. For example, I had given us like a half day to go around Shibuya/ Harajuku, but because we didn't look into what malls or stores we might like to go to, we ended up wandering pretty aimlessly and not really enjoying the area. This happened a few different areas we went to, so I decided that in the future I would pin some stores on Google Maps and try to make it to those specific stores
- Install LINE and set up an account. It's crazy how much connects to LINE. For me the biggest thing was 1) making Sushiro reservations and not having to sit in the store for an hour plus waiting for our table and 2) being able to grab a chargeSPOT to charge my phone. I brought a battery pack but at this point it must be like a decade old, it took the entire night to recharge and died on me during the day a few times. I have a Pixel 6 Pro and was literally constantly charging my phone
- If you're coming from the Americas, don't try to do something on your first night. Get your Konbini dinner and go the fuck to sleep
- Getting from place to place can take longer than expected, you'll have to navigate the stations, find the entrances (sometimes hidden in malls) and exits (sometimes closed), don't make plans too tight together
- Navigating Kyoto was so much more confusing. At first our Suica cards didn't work because we apparently didn't tap out at a station in Tokyo, so we were buying day passes and paying in cash on the bus. Some of the buses have 0 English and 100% Kanji (navigation difficulty: extreme). Suica cards DO work in Kyoto so if you're having issues go to a gate with an attendant and they can help
- It can be weirdly hard to find bathrooms, most konbini have them but you're supposed to ask the cashier if you can use them. I speak very basic Japanese but hammed up the gaijin card here and would just ask to use the toilet in English, no one ever told me no Weeb specific advice:
- If you want to do pop ups (like the Jujutusu Kaisen Animation exhibit), a Japanese e-sim will be a lifesaver. You need a Japanese phone number to do SO much, they really make it extremely frustrating to make reservations without it. I did manage to make reservations for the Square Enix cafe though, the write-up is on my profile. (Was it worth it? Absolutely not, worst food all trip, -3/10)
- Prices are all over the place for figures, especially prize figures. There's a solid chance you might buy something and see it cheaper at the next shop, however going back/forth between shops in Akihabara can be a huge pain in the ass. I'd recommend 1) making a list of things you want the most and 2) setting a per item budget and a total budget. A lot of the anime stuff was cheaper in Kyoto as well
- You can find a ton of gachapon stuff at Surugaya, so you can just buy what you want and don't have to gamble. Surugaya bins are organized by series
- Use collabo-cafe.com to find cafes and pop up events you might be interested. Plan ahead because reservations can be hard to come by
Now on to the super detailed trip report! Here's the big album
if you don't want to look through photos separated by day. Warning for flashing video Day 1
- Landed in Haneda around 3pm. Immigration + customs took about an hour (we did the visit Japan web ahead of time and had both QR codes ready). There was virtually no lines anywhere
- It took about an hour to navigate to the hotel. I chose to stay at the Tokyu Stay Tsukiji because 1) it was really cheap, 2) it was close to the Ginza line, and 3) it had a washer in the room. Although the location was slightly inconvenient for late nights, I'd say it was totally worth it for the ability to grab food in Tsukiji market, and the room was pretty large compared to some other areas of Tokyo. In fact, the room was so cheap that when we went to Kyoto, we opted to not check out of the Tsukiji room and just leave the majority of our possessions there. This didn't cause any issues and made travelling on the Shinkansen way easier
- I thought we were built different and could do some stuff this evening. We ended up walking to the Donki and being assaulted by sound in every direction. 7/10 didn't discover the 2nd floor until days later. At this point exhaustion kicked in and we got a Lawsons dinner and crashed
- Going to Akihabara on our first day in Japan sure was a choice. Thankfully neither of us suffered jetlag on the way in. Checked out like 10 different game centers and a ton of anime shops. Managed to find the only Monster Rehab of the whole trip here
- Konbini lunch + strong zero! That flavor was terrible :')
- Dinner at the Monster Hunter cafe (no reservations required). Expectations were low but my travel partner is a huge MH fan. The food wasn't bad but the drinks were awful. The ambiance is nice and there were definitely some regulars there playing MH on the consoles they had set up
- The new Namco game center had like 12 brand new Taiko cabs and all of them had phone mounts so you could film yourself playing! I was really intimidated by everyone there being extremely good so we didn't play any games here
(Shibuya & Harajuku, photos
- Breakfast at Tsukiji outer market since we were already there
- Went to Shibuya Loft for the Bravely Default pop up shop
- Checked out Tower Records
- Ate lunch at Japanese McDonalds
- Went to Takeshita Street. TBH this felt like in-person AliExpress, I'm sure the charm of the early 2000s is long gone
- Visited Hachiko
- Shibuya Sky Observatory
- Started at Kaminarimon Gate & went down Nakamise shopping street. It was very crowded on a Sunday but I enjoyed it immensely, you just need some patience to get where you want to go. I liked trying all the food, most of the food stalls here were cash only
- Senso-ji temple, bought Goshuincho to collect stamps
- Ate lunch and dinner in the area, there's a ton of food options
- We ended going all the way over to Yoyogi park as well but nothing was in bloom. Because it was overcast the park looked really sad
(Shinjuku & Kabukicho, photos
- Now is the time to come clean, I'm a huge Yakuza/ RGG fan. In the morning I had my Majima birthday cake delivered by PRIROLL. I pre-ordered it and chose the delivery day where we didn't have morning plans. It comes frozen and needs to defrost in the fridge. While we left Majima to chill, we made the pilgrimage to Kabukicho to see the iconic gate. It was raining in the morning so we hit up some arcades then went shopping
- There's a really cool mall that seems anime-centric (I believe it's called Shinjuku Marui Anex). It had a Godzilla store, Cinnamoroll Cafe, a JJK pop up, and best of all... A Surugaya. These stores have bins where everything is ¥100-300 and we ended up buying way too much in every one we came across
- Went back to Kabukicho and explored a bit, went to Golden Gai and drank at a handful of bars. Almost missed the last train because I drunkenly insisted on a final game of MaiMai. 10/10 staying in Kabukicho next time
(Ikebukero & Rippongi, photos
- The plan today was to check out Ikebukero and Roppongi, but we ended up spending so much time at the first mall that we didn't really do anything in Roppongi besides get dinner. Went to the Pokemon Mega Center and the cafe. The main cafe was closed so it was just take out, all the food was really cute but the waffles were kind of terrible
- Gashapon no Depato Ikebukuro was super overwhelming. A lot of the smaller gashapon stores are somewhat organized by what is in the machines, this one just felt chaotic, and it went on forever
- Sushi Yuu was incredible, I didn't take photos of every single course but I was so full that couldn't finish my dessert at the very end. The owner speaks some English and I made our reservations by messaging him on Facebook
- We didn't get to Yokohama as early as I would have liked - I took us out way into the suburbs to try to find this Yakuza plushie from the claw machines. I looked up the locations on the Sega website, unfortunately this machine was extra rigged and I couldn't win it >:[ On the bright side all the rhythm games had no one else playing them
- Took the cable car over and went to the Cup Noodle museum. Unfortunately we didn't have a reservation so we had to come back later. Found some cafes in the area and had a late breakfast
- The museum was really small, the main draw is making your own Cup Noodles. Entrance costs 500 yen and this is an additional 500. We had some trouble navigating this part because no one spoke any English
- Had dinner at a pie restaurant that was 10/10
- Explored a bit of Yamashita park (Yakuza 7, anyone?) I was kind of disappointed I wasn't able to see this during the day
- Walked around Yokohama Chinatown & visited the local Round 1 ;)
- I bought the Shinkansen tickets to Kyoto the evening before, so we weren't able to get great seats. The machines are also a huge pain in the ass and don't take American CCs, so plan ahead here
- It took us longer than expected to figure out how to use the tickets and read the signage, so we weren't able to get food before and I had to have one of the train bentos. I knew it was going to suck and it was worse than expected :(
- You can bring a full sized suitcase and just put it in front of you, seeing other people do this was unexpected
- My travel partner was destroyed at this point so she rested in the room. I went to the National Garden and Imperial Palace alone. The sakura were just starting to bloom and the weather was great, loved it. The National Garden is SO huge that I only ended up walking up the west side before I tapped out
- Checked out Heian-jingu shrine + the giant torii, I went to another smaller shrine with a great view but I can't remember the name
- We did photoshoots at ESPERANTO Kyoto. There's basically no reviews from foreigners about this place but it was fantastic!! Their online booking form didn't work for me, so I emailed asking for a reservation. I emailed in Japanese and English and they replied in English. They gave me time options and I replied with what package and room each of us wanted (the website says they require a deposit but they told me they didn't need one). When we got there they did our hair and makeup, and then you pick your kimonos out. The photographer spoke pretty decent English and we didn't have trouble communicating with anyone else here. They had our photos edited and printed about 30 minutes after we picked which ones we wanted. The whole thing took about 3 hours (it was longer because we used the same set room). I don't want to include my photos but I did add a video of my hairstyle because she knocked it out of the park
- Ended the day with okonomiyaki, one of my favorite Japanese foods
- Fushimi Inari day! I ended up walking this alone, I did not realize how long it was going to take or the fact it was actually like 10,000 stairs. My knees were very upset on the way down
- It was not as busy as expected, I went at roughly noon on a Friday. Most people tap out before the actual mountain climb
- The Goshuin at Fushimi Inari are on paper, you can paste them into your books later. Even if you don't have a Goshuincho I'd recommend buying them because they are very cute!
- Shrine cats!!!! You can buy photos of them to help pay for their food
- After Fushimi Inari I somehow managed to walk to Tofukuji Temple (I did the garden but not the bridge) and Daigo-ji Gojunoto pagoda and garden. I wanted to cut my legs off after today
- I started my day at the Kyoto Round 1, I had visited it on day 8 as well. This one is ace because it was literally always empty 10/10
- Decided to explore Gion a bit, ended up at the Machiya Starbucks and had the best thing I ate all trip (a custard dorayaka, I regret not going back for another)
- Ended up at Kiyomizu-dera Temple totally on accident. It wasn't super impressive in early spring but the view was still fantastic
- Ended the day at the Ryokan (Kyokoyado Muromachi Yutone). Ended up picking one without an onsen because we are both covered in tattoos, and I didn't want to deal with finding a private one. The cypress tub was a great trade off, and the food was incredible
(Tokyo - Concert, photos
- Today we travelled back to Tokyo and went to the Kingdom Hearts concert. I ended up trying for the lottery for tickets back in like December 2022. Winners were announced the first weekend in January and you only had a few days to buy tickets. I have a friend of a friend living in Japan who did me the biggest solid ever and bought our tickets. I met up with her during the trip for the hand off. The seats are randomly assigned and we had AMAZING seats near the front. This was also the performance Nomura was at!
- We weren't supposed to take photos during the performance so I just have some before. Also, I made Organization XIII beads that attach onto my dress with magnets and I am very proud of it, so please excuse the bathroom selfie :D
- The concert was about 3 hours long and after all the travelling we were beat. We ate dinner, played our nightly games of Ongeki, and passed out
- Bonus video of the music box that plays Dearly Beloved
(Ginza & Sumida, photos
- We were really starting to tucker out at this point. We managed to drag ourselves to the Ginza art Aquarium in the AM and the Tokyo SkyTree in the afternoon. Today was the Equinox so everything was crazy busy, the line to buy tickets for the SkyTree was literally like 2 ish hours long so we bought them online and went shopping in the mall
- The Art Aquarium was really cool, but a lot of the fish were in really small tanks. I didn't include photos of those :(
- The SkyTree just let people up as fast as they could so it was extremely crowded at the top, and not super enjoyable imo
- I spent the evening at the arcades in Akihabara :D
(Tokyo - JJK Exhibit, photos
- flashing video warning)
- Today I went off in the am to see if I could buy a ticket to the Jujutsu Kaisen animation exhibit in person. The online site wouldn't let me buy a ticket because I didn't have a Japanese phone number. UNFORTUNATELY you couldn't buy tickets in person. I got super lucky again and 2 foreign exchange students from Europe were trying to do the same thing, however they did have a Japanese phone number and the site allowed you to get 3 tickets at a time. They were able to grab them for all 3 of us for that evening
- Putzed off to Hie Shrine, anyone that tells you it's a mini Fushimi Inari is lying
- Went back to Akihabara, found a Miku racing pop up!
- Went back to... Ginza? for the JJK animation exhibit, it took about an hour to go through. I included a ton of photos so just skip today if you're not interested in that show
(Tokyo - TeamLabs Planets & SquareEnix Cafe, photos
- TeamLabs was so cool! I didn't include many photos since it's 95% selfies. Make sure you explore a bit as the string light room had a couple of different areas that are easy to miss, and it's possible to accidentally skip the hanging garden, which was beautiful! TeamLabs took us about 2.5 hours but we were 100% those bitches taking forever to get a million photos
- Since we were staying in Tsukiji we ended up just slowly walking back to the room for a much needed nap
- Back to Akihabara yet again! More rhythm games, some awful food at SE
- This was our last full day in Japan, we honestly didn't want to do anything but we managed to drag our asses to Shinjuku National Garden for the cherry blossoms. Unfortunately it was sprinkling a bit, at least it kept the crowds away
- Managed to check out Meiji Jingu, but at this point my travel partner was sick of walking and tapped out
- I went back to Kabukicho, walked around a bit and ended up back at an arcade (bless Ongeki for having stools)

- We were literally so annihilated by the trip that we took a taxi to the airport, it was about ¥8,000 from Tsukiji ($60 USD ish)
- I ended up buying a 24" suitcase from Ginza Karen for ¥6,000. It was 100% full of stuff I purchased. We also used one or those giant ¥500 bags from Donki as a carry on
- My Goshuincho was my favorite souvenir, I'm so proud of all the stamps I collected (I did get doubles at some shrines). I plan to bring this back late 2023 to try to finish it
- I have the old school GoogleFi plan and don't have to do anything extra to have international data. Lots of places & stations have free WiFi but you'll need to put your email in
- I don't really sleep that much and my schedule in the US is already busted, but it took me about 2 full weeks to get back on normal human hours. I'm tired again just writing this up and looking through all my photos
- My main regret is not trying more food, we ended up waiting until we were dying of starvation and ate at the konbini a lot (typical)

| || |@AlpacaFinance submitted by AlpacaFinance to AlpacaFinanceOfficial [link] [comments]
Check out our May recap https://medium.com/alpaca-finance/may-2023-recap-f31617447e08
May 2023 Recap
In May, we continued to make UX/UI improvements on both of our newly launched products (Perpetual Futures Exchange
and Alpaca Finance 2.0 Money Market)
as well as worked on new products and features including the integration of LYF with CL DEXes (AVv3) and Alpaca Gaming. We also listed several new tokens on AF2.0 Money Market for our users to lend and borrow. Additionally, we`re excited to share our first partner in the new Grazing Range program.
This month, we published five Institutional Newsletters where you can read the summary of major headlines in the crypto market related to regulation, products, and fundraising. We publish these newsletters every week. You can check out this month’s editions here: Edition 34, Edition 35, Edition 36, Edition 37
, and Edition 38
Read below for more details of our developments this month.
🌾 Lending Pools and Farms
As decentralized exchanges (DEXs) upgrade their automated market making logic to incorporate concentrated liquidity (CL) and shift their incentives rewards towards this new model, yield-generating protocols that build on top of DEXs, such as Alpaca Finance, will also need to evolve to continue offering high-yield products to their users.
As such, we have shared with the herd our thought process, various options we considered, the path we are currently pursuing, as well as the progress and expected timeline for the new leveraged yield farming (LYF) products that will integrate with CL DEXs. You can read the full article here
Moreover, according to AIP-20
, to align with AF2.0, the new lending performance fee distribution of AF1.0 will be changed to:
- 6% to Governance Vault
- 4% to Buyback and Burn
The change will take effect starting from June 1st’s Gov rewards distribution cycle.
🏦 Automated Vaults
This month, due to recent high trading fees (APR%), we launched a new 8x BNB Savings Vault:
Although the trading fees subsequently dropped; this particular vault’s withdrawal fee is set to 0% to facilitate exiting as desired.
💎 AF 2.0
Our AF2.0 Money Market
has officially exited the beta and is now launched at full scale
. Consequently, ALPACA rewards emissions have increased to 86,000 ALPACA/week
, divided among Lenders and Borrowers. You can find the specific incentive rewards allocation in our docs here
Within the span of a single month, the protocol has amassed a total supply of ~$40+ million
across a range of assets, with borrowed assets totaling ~$20 million
Furthermore, we have also listed 3 new assets:
As part of our recent Grazing Range program, HIGH’s lenders and borrowers will be able to earn ~$50k in HIGH bonus rewards which will be distributed during the eight-week campaign period
(May 18th, 2023 — Jul 13th, 2023). The rewards will be distributed as follows:
- 13,000 HIGH (~$20k) will be distributed to HIGH depositors.
- 19,500 HIGH (~$30k) will be distributed to HIGH borrowers.
Users will be able to claim the bonus HIGH rewards anytime on our Claim Page
Bitcoin Pizza Day 2023
To celebrate the Bitcoin Pizza Day 2023, the exclusive Happy Bitcoin Pizza Day 2023 NFT was given to all users having BTCB deposited or borrowed by May 23rd, 2023. You can check your eligibility here
📈 Perpetual Futures Exchange
In May, we created our in-house Stats page
where you can monitor Alperp’s performance and easily download the data in csv file format. Moreover, traders can now share their position PnL with others by clicking the “Share” button on the position.
Alperp’s cumulative trading volume is now over $350 million, resulting in generated fees of over $350k for ALP stakers.
We also updated the Alperp rewards allocation from the week of May 4th as follows:
- 40% to ALP (32,000 $ALPACA / week)
- 60% to traders (48,000 $ALPACA / week)
🔥 ALPACA Buyback&Burn
Each week, we share our revenue and ALPACA burn statistics on Twitter. In May, 518,552 ALPACA (~$111,400)
was burned over 4 weeks, or an average of 129,638 ALPACA per week. The total cumulative burn is now ~31.5 million ALPACA (16.8% of total supply).
ALPACA has been deflationary for 70 of the last 77 weeks. As per the ALPACA emission schedule
, the ALPACA token is now guaranteed to be fully deflationary
as ALPACA emissions & rewards are now officially finished. We added extensive details on burn and various sources of burn on our Docs here
. On top of that, we hope to again refer our readers to this article
by a community member, explaining ALPACA’s deflationary nature and how it will lead to a natural rise of the ALPACA token’s price over time.
🗽 Alpaca Governance
Given recent rumors surrounding Multichain, we suggest all ALPACA holders on Fantom bridge their ALPACA back to BNB Chain promptly, as bridging remains operational. You can bridge here
Governance stakers in Fantom can now withdraw their ALPACA without penalties.
Any user can stake ALPACA in the Governance Vault to (1)earn a share of our platform’s revenue, (2)get Grazing Range rewards, and (3)receive xALPACA to vote on Alpaca Improvement Proposals (AIPs). Currently, users can earn 13.65% APY
on the BNB Chain and 7.52% APY
In total, 40.2% of circulating ALPACA has been locked
, and we have paid over >$3.8 Mn
to ALPACA governance stakers. Read all about Alpaca Governance in our Part 1
and Part 2
Medium articles or visit our docs’ Governance section
Our Discord has a private channel
for xALPACA holders where governance members can discuss topics and discoveshare alpha. There is a bot automating membership and the minimum required to gain entry is 100 xALPACA in a wallet. From time to time, we do special airdrops from partners (i.e. NFTs) in this channel to xALPACA holders and also Alpies holders (in their respective private channels). You can also bring up any Governance topics for discussion in our Forum
. Alpaca Improvement Proposals (AIPs):
- AIP-19 voting has successfully passed. The community voted to implement shielded voting for future Governance votes.
- AIP-20 voting has successfully passed. The community voted to change the AF1.0’s fee structure to align with AF2.0
- AIP-21.1 voting has successfully passed. The community voted to make an adjustment to the bad debt repayment structure associated with stkBNB
For those who participated in voting, the NFT for AIP-19
are now available to claim on Galxe. As for AIP-21, given its sequential voting structure, the AIP-21 NFT will be made available for claiming upon the conclusion of the final vote. Visit our Governance Forum
to read about, discuss, and vote on these AIPs.
According to AIP-19, the AIP will now implement Shielded Voting, ensuring that voters’ choices remain private throughout the voting period and are only revealed upon the closure of the proposal
. For more detail, please refer to this article
. Grazing Ranges:
Users who stake ALPACA in our Governance Vault can earn Grazing Range tokens. Grazing Range tokens are tokens of protocols we have partnered with (bold indicates new partners this month):
- 32,500 HIGH (~$50k USD; from 5/18 to 7/13)
Users who stake at least 500/5000/50,000 xALPACA (3 tiers) during the first 4 weeks
of a Grazing Range campaign can earn a Grazing Range NFT. Details of each Grazing Range campaign are available on our Medium

2023.06.06 02:38 SelfAwareBicycle Experiencing Bug on Outlook in Edge with Text Disappearing
Hey everyone, I have to ask a question because I have been experiencing an absolutely insane bug, and I have no idea what's causing it or how to fix it. This happens when I write specific emails using the Outlook web application for Office 365 on my company's subscription in Edge.
Ok, so, every month, my boss sends out an email asking every member of the sales team to report last month's sales of a certain product lineup and give the next month's forecasts for the same.
This is a long, ongoing email chain - the boss sends out the prompt (sometimes an Excel attachment of sales data, sometimes just a little pep talk) on the first of the month, and everyone responds in the chain - then the next month the boss responds to the chain giving the month's prompt, and we use the same email chain.
For my review, I'll click "Reply all" to the email chain, go down to my previous email report, copy the body, paste it into the new draft, and edit the text. (Nothing actually changes month-to-month, so I'm just tweaking the numbers and changing the months.)
This is where it gets wacky. When I'm halfway through the email, I will Ctrl+x to cut a sentence from one section to move it to another - and the entire body of the text reverts to an earlier version of the text. Not the first
version, an earlier
version. Hitting Ctrl+z to undo does nothing. The text just…changes. If I immediately go to drafts and reopen the email it will have the new version of the text saved.
The trigger for this seems to change. Last month, it was Ctrl+x, this month it was highlighting the entire text and changing the font size in the menu bar.
It gets wackier - in an attempt to avoid this issue, I started copying the body of my text and pasting it into One Note - but no matter how many times I did it, it would only
copy and paste the same earlier version of the text.
It would not let me copy or save my text, it would only
let me copy the earlier version of the text.
To visualize this, it's something like this:
- I copy the text: "I sold 2,000 units in March."
- I look up my sales numbers and edit the text: "I sold 5,000 units in March." Then I edit the text again: "I sold 5,000 units in April."
- I highlight "I sold 5,000 units in April" and click Ctrl+x
- When I hit Ctrl+x, the text becomes "I sold 5,000 units in March," the second version of the text.
- I hit Ctrl+z to undo the edit - nothing happens. The edit can't be undone.
What's happening this month is:
- I edit the text to "I sold 5,000 units in April," the highlight it and hit Ctrl+c - I open One Note and hit Ctrl+v.
- The text "I sold 5,000 units in March" appears in One Note.
The quick and dirty solution is, of course, for me to write the entire email in One Note and copy it into Outlook, but I really, really, really need to understand what is happening here. I have never seen a text in computer software just…change like this. If it starts happening with other emails, I will literally go insane.
Has anyone encountered this, and does anyone know how to avoid it?
Tl:Dr - while editing text in a long email chain in Outlook in Edge, it will revert to an earlier version of the text and the change can't be undone. Copying and pasting new versions of the text only copies the old version. Drafts save the new version of the text.

2023.06.06 02:26 bie716 Singapore experts of r/bangtan! What advice and recommendations do you have for ARMY visiting Singapore for the SUGA Agust D Concert? (16 - 18 June 2023)
In just under two weeks, ARMYs will descend upon Singapore to see SUGA! Help an ARMY out and let them know about safety, how to get around, where to eat, tourist attractions, BTS-related things to do, or anything else that you think someone should know when they visit! (Special thanks to the mods for your input and feedback for this guide!)
BTS' Past Visits Red Bullet Tour (2014 BTS Live Trilogy Episode II) at the The Star Performing Arts Centre (13 Dec 2014) Music Bank performance (4 Aug 2017) at the Suntec Convention Centre Love Yourself World Tour (19 Jan 2019) at the National Stadium
This made history as the first time a K-pop group held a concert at the venue (largest concert venue in the country) and tickets sold out
in about 3.5 hours! (45,000 audience)
- Concert review
- Witty notice from the Singapore Police Force abt avoiding ticket scams (it uses the BTS song titles!)
- Bonus: Jimin picked Marina Bay Sands as his special spot in the BTS x Street Galleries collaboration with Google revealed on ARMY Day (July 9) 2022
Do note that it’s currently the June school holidays too (26 May-26 Jun), so the Sports Hub and surrounding areas may be crowded with many other visitors besides the concert-goers. Please be mindful!
- Singapore Indoor Stadium, right next to the National Stadium (both are part of the Singapore Sports Hub) where BTS performed at their last concert here in 2019. In fact, the Indoor Stadium was then used as the waiting zone for the standing zone ticket-holders.
- Concert guidelines been posted yet (will update here when they are), but here are the general guidelines for events there (links opens a pdf)
- The nearest MRT station is the Stadium station, on the Circle line - here is a train map (with Stadium MRT circled out in light purple). You’ll know when you’ve arrived as the station design is quite unique! Go up the elevator and follow the signage - the path is sheltered.
- You can find Kallang Wave Mall right next to the venue, for a spot of shopping and dining before the concert (opening hrs:10am-10pm daily). There is another smaller mall Leisure Park Kallang located next to the carpark, which houses an ice skating rink, bowling alley and cinema alongside more food options. The open space in front of the MRT station and the two malls is where ARMYs are likely to gather to exchange fan support and stuff
- The nearest hawker centre (i.e the affordable street food) is Old Airport Road Food Centre, one of the oldest and largest hawker centres in the country. It is about 20 mins walk away from the stadium, or you can simply alight at the Mountbatten/Dakota MRT stations (one or two stops away from Stadium MRT station respectively); both are about a 5 mins’ walk away from the food centre. Here is a list of recommendations (unfortunately, not a lot of Halal food stalls here. Let me know if you need those).
- There is also a McDonalds’ & KFC near Mountbatten MRT if you want something more familiar, or potentially try whatever new promo is currently going on at these places.
Non-exhaustive list (all prices are in SGD)
- National Gallery Singapore. There is a special Namjooning Tour as part of the Gallery Wellness Festival. Slots are fully booked for the guided tours on 25 & 30 June. You could try the self-guided tours instead, which start on 17 July. Gallery passes for general admission to the permanent galleries (needed to access the tour) cost $20 for non-Singaporeans aged 13-59. Closes early (by 3pm) on some weekends in June and July (see dates on website).
- National Museum Singapore. Has very interactive and engaging exhibits. Highly recommended (I used to be a volunteer docent there for abt a year). Tickets cost from $15 (for access to permanent galleries only)
- Singapore Zoo & adjacent parks (Bird Park, River Wonders, Night Safari). We have one of the best zoos in the world! Single park tickets cost $50. Multi-park options also available. .
- Gardens by the Bay. Pretty gardens with outdoor sections and 2 indoor air-conditioned conservatories - you may have heard of the supertrees that have been featured in the movie "Crazy Rich Asians" and K-drama "Little Women". Provides a welcome respite from the heat. It’s free to visit the outdoor areas, but it’s really worth it to pay for entry to the conservatories. There are various pricing packages, so best to check out the website yourself.
- Singapore Botanical Gardens is our first UNESCO World Heritage site, the first and only tropical botanic garden on the list. Admission is free.
- The Merlion and the Marina Bay area. I personally recommend going at night to see the famed cityscape of Singapore all lit up (the temperature’s cooler too!). Marina Bay Sands Mall has a light and water show every night. There is also the iLight Festival going on now until 25 June with artistic light installations (mix of free and paid attractions). Bonus: Yoongi wore a Merlion Singapore t-shirt in a travel-themed Lotte Xylitol ad!
- You can also ride the Singapore Flyer for an aerial view of our city like the boys did! Admission costs $40.
- Visit our ethnic enclaves, Chinatown, Little India, Kampung Glam and Geylang Serai to see old shophouses, shop for souvenirs and try ethnic food
- One of the fanbases here, BangtanSG, has teased an ARMY event from 11-13 June. Will update when more details are released.
- Sentosa & Universal Studios Singapore theme park - you can access the island via various modes of transport with varying admission fees. Transport within the island is free.
- If you don’t want to think too hard, the best airport in the world for 12 years running is also an attraction in itself! See its dedicated section below for more information.
- Singapore is also located in the centre of Southeast Asia - if you’ve never been in this oft-forgotten region of the world, take the chance to check out our neighbouring countries as well! Malaysia can easily be reached via bus, and Indonesia via ferry.
(Note: You may want to check out Klook
for discount tickets/passes)
Singapore is a food paradise with various cuisines from the local ethnic groups, as well as international ones. For Muslims, there are a lot of Muslim-owned or Halal-certified options around (look for this certificate
, or the label “Muslim-owned”), including most of the fast food chains like McDonald’s/KFC/Burger King/Subway.
Carrying some cash with you (~$10 per pax) is a good idea, especially if you’re venturing out to hawker centres; while many places now have an electronic payment system in place, cash is still king in terms of versatility, and anecdotally most stores prefer cash or will charge a credit-card payment surcharge.
Where to eat?
- Most of the malls have a good selection of dining options, ranging from the (relatively affordable) multi-stall foodcourts to fast-food restaurants, cafes, and more upmarket restaurants.
- It can get crowded during lunchtime (12-2pm) as office workers come out for their break, so try to avoid those hours if possible, or make advance reservations.
- If you are staying/shopping in Orchard Road, Far East Plaza (level 4 & 5) and Lucky Plaza (multiple levels) have relatively more affordable food options for the area..
- There’s a myriad of other malls in the suburban areas outside of Orchard to be explored.
- Hawker centres: A “hawker” in Singapore refers to a street food vendor, and in Singapore they’ve been centralised into food centres to create an iconic Singapore dining institution. These places are generally not air-conditioned, but they are the most affordable dining option. If you see an item on a table even if it’s something innocuous like a tissue paper packet or name-card, it means the seat's been reserved (“chop-ed” in the local slang) by people who are off queuing for their food.
- Look for stalls with the longest lines (the most popular stalls will have long queues all day long), but most stalls should have decent food.
- Newton Hawker Centre (near Newton MRT station) and Lau Pa Sat (near Telok AyeDowntown/Raffles Place Stations) are probably the most well-known to tourists, but beware of touts and over-charging, especially at Newton.
- Taking the MRT out to slightly less central areas like Ang Mo Kio, Toa Payoh, Kallang, etc. should bring you to other hawker centres that cater to locals.
- Order in: GrabFood and Foodpanda are the two most popular food delivery apps with extensive coverage all around Singapore. Deliveroo is also available. Just be prepared to pay upwards of $5 delivery fee during peak periods, and the listed online prices are usually higher than in-store. The apps also have pick-up available if you’d simply like to order in advance.
- The ethnic enclaves like Kampung Glam (Malay/Muslim), Chinatown and Little India have a higher concentration of the respective ethnic cuisines, but most places in Singapore have a good mix of different local and international cuisines
What to eat? Breakfast
(These are generally very affordable options that should cost you below $10 per person, particularly if you go to food courts/hawker centres)
Lunch & dinner
- Tea/coffee with kaya toast and half-boiled eggs. Available at most hawker centres (usually at the drink stalls), and chains like Ya Kun Kaya Toast and Killiney Kopitiam in malls. Order tea/coffee like a local by referring to this guide.
- Among the fast-food chains, KFC offers the more local option of chicken porridge (congee)
- Roti prata, a south-Indian flatbread (also known as paratha in India, or roti canai in Malaysia), available at most hawker centres and Indian coffee-shops
- Nasi lemak, coconut milk-flavoured rice with a variety of side dishes (usual ones: omelette, fried chicken wing/fried fish, fried anchovies).
- Beehoon, rice vermicelli with a range of toppings like fish cake, luncheon meat (spam), chicken wings, veggies etc.
- Chai Tow Kway (“carrot cake” - it’s actually radish cake), Tau Huey (soya bean curd pudding) + Youtiao (chinese fried dough)
- Mee Rebus, a Malay noodle dish with thick & spicy potato-based gravy topped with hard-boiled egg, bean sprouts, fried shallots, tau kwa (fried beancurd) and spring onions
- Chilli crab: I don’t have any personal recommendations, and it could be costly because the crabs are usually charged by weight, which may vary daily. The link gives a run-down of some popular places
- Hainanese chicken rice: Again, no personal recommendations, but you can find this in most foodcourts and hawker centres. You should be able to find one of these for $5 or less.
- Murtabak/Briyani: My favourite is ZamZam Restaurant (est, 1908) at North Bridge Road in the Muslim enclave of Kampung Glam, but there is a whole row of Singapore-Indian restaurants serving a similar menu there
- Everything under the sun :) Google maps & data coverage generally works well in most parts of Singapore, so search & explore! Some sites you can start at include Chope & Burpple.
Singapore has a great public transport system.
It’s really easy & cheap to get around on the MRT (mass rapid transit trains) and buses. Use Google Maps
or the City Mapper app
to navigate yourself and get route recommendations (the latter also has transport arrival timings and fare estimates. It also works in many cities globally,
so is very useful for tourists). Various transport passes are available
for tourists, but you can also use your contactless credit cards (Visa and Mastercard) to pay for the fares (no registration required).
In general, using the Circle Line (yellow) or Downtown Line (blue) should get you to most tourist attractions. Orchard Road (main shopping belt) can be accessed via the North South Line (red), between Orchard and Somerset MRT stations. Map for reference, with links to versions in Chinese/Malay/Tamil available for download. Taxis and ride-hailing cars:
We have Grab and Gojek in place of Uber.
- The largest local taxi fleet - the blue Comfort Cabs - also have their own ride-hailing app to compete, although they can also operate via the traditional meter & can be booked via phone call/flagged down as usual. Fares can be paid via cash post-ride or credit card for all these private car options.
- Ride-hailing tends to be very expensive. At peak periods, ride-hailing services could be even more expensive than taxis, but at least you know the price beforehand. All malls have a taxi stand where you can stand in queue and hop on the next available cab. Queues can be long at morning and evening peak periods, so avoid taking cabs then if you can.
All signs are in English, and the locals - esp the younger generation - are able to speak English fluently. If you’re really lost, feel free to approach others to ask for help! People are generally friendly and helpful despite initial appearances :)
As a side note: in general, if Google Maps is asking you to circle around a building to get somewhere - don’t. You can cut through most places on the ground floor quite easily, even the residential buildings (unless they’re private properties like condominiums/landed housing). MRT stations are connected to a good number of places via sheltered corridors if they’re nearby enough. Enjoy the aircon & shade instead of walking outside in the heat if you can.
- Orchard Road is our main shopping belt, running from Orchard to Somerset MRT stations. You can find many shopping malls there, with collections ranging from upmarket to fast fashion. Check out Design Orchard, a retail space for fashion and lifestyle items by Singapore designers.
- For an old-style emporium experience drop by Mustafa Centre. It used to be open 24 hours but this was disrupted by COVID19 and now it is only open until 2am (best place for late night shopping!). It's not a glitzy mall, but has crowded aisles chock full of all manners of things, including snacks and souvenirs (avoid going on Sundays when it gets super crowded with migrant workers on their day off).
- Already mentioned above are the ethnic enclaves Chinatown, Little India, Kampung Glam and Geylang Serai with smaller standalone shops. Special mention for Haji Lane in the Kampung Glam area, a small street with cute boutiques.
- The many, many other malls scattered across the country - a brief list. For example, Paya Lebar alone (just another station up from Dakota!) is connected to several malls like Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ), PLQ 2, PL Square, Singpost centre, and a couple more within a 5-mins’ walk (Tanjong Katong Complex, City Plaza, KINEX etc.).
Weathewhat to wear The weather is especially hot these days
(max temp of up to 35 degrees celsius, or 95 Fahrenheit), with possible spurts of heavy rain at certain times of day, so dress light and carry an umbrella (most places do have sheltered walkways between buildings and bus-stops/MRT stations though, so don’t worry too much about getting around in the rain). Mall air-conditioning can be cold, so hv another layer (e.g. cardigan/wrap/scarf) on hand. Remember to hydrate frequently & avoid staying outdoors for too long!
- Singapore Changi Airport is often voted by travellers as the best airport in the world, with lots of shopping, dining and leisure options in the various terminals. BTS (except Jin who took a different flight) stopped over at Changi Airport on the way to New Zealand for Bon Voyage 4 (airport lounge scenes shown in Episode 1)! While you may not have access to the business class lounge like them, there are various other options to rest and hangout, like the many gardens (some even accessible from the public areas) and even a free 24h cinema (Terminal 3 transit area).
- Jewel Changi Airport which is attached to Terminal 1 is an attraction in itself. It's worth arriving 2-3 hours earlier than your flight check-in time to grab a meal and have a look around Jewel. A particular highlight is to take the skytrain between Terminals 2 and 3, cutting across the centre of Jewel, to get a spectacular view of the indoor waterfall. There is also shopping aplenty (Tip: NTUC Fairprice supermarket in Jewel has a nice selection of food and non-food souvenirs which are pretty affordable).
- There are various transport options for getting to the city from the airport. Public transport like MRT is convenient if you are travelling light, else there is a shuttle service to selected downtown hotels. Taxis and ride-hire cars can be expensive, especially with the airport surcharge.
- Sort of related, Yoongi gave a shout out to our national airlines (Singapore Airlines) for its great seat and amenities in business class in BV4! (He said: let's always fly Singapore Airlines in the future!). The airlines must have taken notice, because they recently announced that they would be adding BTS content like songs, MVs, LY New York concert, and Break The Silence docu in their in-flight entertainment system to commemorate BTS' 10th anniversary. An ARMY also spotted a write-up abt BTS in their in-flight magazine.
We’ve tried to achieve a balance between being succinct and informative, but certainly the above info is not exhaustive. So do feel free to ask in the comments below if the info you need is not here! Fellow SG ARMY, or those familiar with Singapore, feel free to chime in!

features many mechanics that, once mastered, can greatly enhance your gaming experience.
So, today, I have prepared a list of 25 essential tips
to help you understand and utilize these mechanics efficiently.
This is Aming4Gaming
, and today we're aiming
for demon slaying
This guide originated from my YouTube video
, where I explain each tip in action. If you enjoy watching videos, I would be really grateful if you checked it out
and rated it - it would help me a lot
However, it's also fair to offer something to Reddit
, which is why I decided to make a text version
of my guide here as well. So, if you prefer text guides, it's right below!
All tips are grouped by their purpose for easy navigation.
- Exploring various zones on the map independently awards renown points, which unlock additional skill points, increase potion capacity, and offer other benefits. Some bonuses apply to all your characters.
- Adjust the world tier to enhance the game's challenge or difficulty by visiting the World Tier Statue or in the character select menu. Modify the world's difficulty if it feels too easy or excessively difficult.
- The world dynamically scales with your character's progress, allowing you to freely explore any previously visited area of your choice.
- Eliminate goblins carrying treasure bags for valuable loot. Ensure continuous attacks to prevent their escape.
- Utilize altars of Lilith for character-wide bonuses. It's great to start a second character with additional stats!
- Triangles on a boss's health bar indicate when they will drop potions. Strategize your potion consumption accordingly.
- Take advantage of different events happening on the map for fast experience and Obols, a rare in-game currency.
- Discover silent chests, large and shiny containers brimming with loot. Unlock them using whispering keys obtained from purveyors of curiosities in exchange for Obols.
- Or you can spend your Obols on random gear. However, while you can gamble for gear, it is generally an unreliable method, yielding subpar results.
- Refund certain skills at a cost of gold, allowing flexible modifications to your build. Initially, skill refunds are free up to a certain level. Remember, skills blocking the next tier cannot be refunded, but temporary refunds for the next tier allow adjustment and reapplication.
- Some of your gear may possess aspects—special traits marked with stars. Extract aspects at Demyan's Occultist Shop, but be aware that extraction destroys the item. Subsequently, imprint the aspect onto a new item using gold and materials.
- Acquire rare aspects by completing various dungeons. These aspects can also be imprinted onto your gear, but keep in mind that most of them are class-specific.
- Consider creating a build that complements each of your skills. Use the skill filter to plan your future build, grouping skills and traits such as bone skills, shadow skills, etc.
- Regularly upgrade the potency of your healing potions at Veroka's Alchemy Shop. These upgrades greatly boost the effectiveness of your potions.
- Craft elixirs at Veroka's Alchemy Shop to temporarily enhance your stats for 30 minutes and gain a 5% experience bonus.
- Refine your resources if you find yourself lacking a specific material.
- Instead of selling items, salvage them to obtain valuable materials. Enemies drop sufficient gold for your needs, while salvaged resources are always necessary for aspect imprinting.
- Salvaging certain gear will unlock customization options.
- Diablo 4 incorporates survival mechanics, so collect the deposits found throughout the game world.
Currency & Materials
- Currency like gold or Obols, as well as collectibles such as plants or ores, are shared among all your characters. However, consumables like keys are character-specific.
- Keep in mind that Obols have a maximum cap, so it's advisable to spend them periodically.
- Avoid purchasing items from vendors, especially in the early stages of the game, as they quickly become outdated and are overpriced.
- Utilize the shared stash to transfer items between characters.
- Customize the appearance of your gear by accessing the wardrobe.
- Identify unwanted gear by marking it as junk, allowing for easy identification before salvaging it at the Blacksmith's house.
I hope with this guide you have achieved what you were aiming for today
If you want to watch more guides, they can be found on my YouTube channel
! I'm doing my best to create guides on both YouTube and Reddit, but I have a full-time job, so it's a bit hard to keep up with everything :(
Anyway, thank you for reading up to this point, and see you later
2023.06.06 00:29 Street-Illustrious S23u WiFi Calling Problems
Bought phone from Fi. Seems to not have the wifi calling menu and settings that other carriers variants have. With wifi on, it still tries to use cellular for calls. Wifi signal is 100%. Cellular signal sometimes shows as much as 100%, but even with that signal strength I can't even do a speedtest, so it's full bars...of a very poor connection. So when I make a call, it goes over cellular, and the call recipient can't hear me. Supports solution was to use airplane mode to force wifi calls. That's alot of steps to make a phone call

2023.06.05 23:40 Longjumping_Ad794 Looking for a spot that has vegan options in the south end
My soon-to-be wife and I are planning a dinner after our small wedding. My soon-to-be brother in law is a vegan and we want him to feel welcomed and to not be "told" what to eat through lack of options.
Problem is all my digging either finds entirely vegan restaurants or nothing.
Looking for something that's a step above a sports bar, but nothing too fancy. We want options for my BIL but also full "normie" menu.

2023.06.05 23:38 Usual-Chemist6133 SteamDeck + PlayStation Plus Cloud Streaming
I had Chiaki set up to play PlayStation for a while now but watched some videos and tutorials and found out how to put PlayStation Plus Cloud streaming (previously psnow) on SteamDeck and it's amazing!!
So far just booted up "Steep" to test controls and it works well so far and not much lag that I can see. Graphics are crisp. Not sure yet how to use the ps touch bar on games that need it tho but I see a few community controller layouts I'll try.
Saved me tons of money. I was looking into buying the ROG Alley for this but this just saved me $899.99 (CAD)
SteamDeck is amazing!
Edit: to people who have done this. Does the cloud streaming save transfer to the ps5 system? I booted up HFW and got to the menu but don't think I noticed my save file there? I think the cloud is the PS4 version tho so that might be the issue since I have the ps5 copy installed?

2023.06.05 23:12 Dramatic-Today399 Just got back from Grace Bay, here is my rundown and reqs
My husband and I just got back from a 5-day vacation in Grace Bay. I spent a lot of time on this sub before our trip and posted asking for recommendations about our itinerary, so figured I would follow up with my thoughts if they are useful to anyone who is planning on visiting there as well!
Accommodations: We stayed at Grace Bay Club. Honestly I can’t say enough good things about this place. Yes it is pricey, but IMO worth the splurge for proximity to the beach, amenities and service. We booked through the hotel and had breakfast included every day, which was delicious and had a lot of variety. The service was amazing. All the staff were super friendly and accommodating the entire time we were there. Lastly, I thought out of the other hotels on the beach that GBC had the best beach setup. There is only one row of chairs, so you have an unobstructed view / access to the ocean. All in all, 10/10!
Food / Restaurants: Since we were staying on resort we ate out for all our meals (if you are planning to do the same, be prepared for how pricey it is!) Here’s a list of where we ate with my two cents: - Coco Bistro: Our favorite meal by far! Everything was delicious. We didn’t have a reservation but were able to get a spot by the bar. Coco van (the airstream bar / food truck on the property) was also a fun spot with more casual vibes. - Infinity Restaurant: This is Grace Bay Club’s on-resort restaurant. It’s nice because it’s right on the beach and very romantic. Food was good, definitely pricey. We didn’t have any but we heard the sushi was good. Might be fun for a splurge! - Provence: French-fusion cuisine, located in-town in sort of a strip mall area. We made reservations here because it got great reviews, but honestly I would skip. It was very expensive and not really worth the price tag IMO. I would pick one of the resort restaurants instead for a splurgy night out so you can be on the water. - Da Conch Shack: a close second favorite! Depending on where you’re staying you need a car or taxi to get there, but I think it’s worth the trip. Right on the beach and great views / vibes. Staff were super friendly and food was great. - Omar’s: We probably did ourselves a disservice by stopping here on the way to the airport since it’s close to it, so we didn’t have a ton of time to hang out. A lot of people recommend this place and it is in a cool location right on the water, and it’s probably a great lunch / day trip spot if you have the time.
Excursions / Transport: - As others have said, RENT A CAR! It’s only about $30/40 per day and so worth it. We rented from Grace Bay Car Rentals and the process was easy. Just be prepared to drive on the left side of the road. - We only had one excursion planned which was a half-day snorkel trip through Lady Grace (a charter that I think is run by the Ritz). I’d recommend looking at Lady Grace’s tours, the boat was super nice, has a full bar and great staff. Snorkeling was fun and we made a stop at Iguana Island afterwards which was nice to see. - My husband also did a dive trip off-resort (I stayed on the beach :)). I don’t have a ton of info but I know he really liked it and it was reasonably priced. I can ask him for details if anyone is interested!
Final thoughts: This was one of the BEST vacations we’ve ever had, we’re already making plans to go back. Usually we pack our trips with tours and excursions, but I was perfectly happy to sit on the beach most days because the water and sand are so beautiful. It’s a perfect spot for a low-key / relaxing vacation (probably not so much if you’re looking for a party destination).
Let me know if I can elaborate on anything!

2023.06.05 23:04 Miserable-Parsley My food bill is huge
I'm looking for any ideas of how to save money as I'm spending £300-£400 a month on food for 1-2 people (sometimes I stay at my partner's and buy food for him too).
A typical day would be muesli, banana and milk for breakfast; grapes and 15g almonds as a mid-morning snack; chicken salad - chicken breast, lettuce, cucumber, pepper for lunch; yogurt and frozen berries mid-afternoon; something like chilli or stir fry for dinner followed by a fibre one bar or something similar (whatever's on special offer).
I try and buy frozen fruit and veg as much as possible. I also maybe buy a lunch once or twice a week - sushi or a sandwich and maybe have a meal out once a week.
I think part of it is the fresh food, part of it is the quantity and part of it is having to shop at a relatively expensive local shop.
I'm looking for meal ideas, particularly for lunch but I get very bored of soup!

2023.06.05 22:51 ALT_F4iry Feeling guilt and shame for working for a business that is mainly pro meat.
I’ve been working at a small brewery for over a year now. The brewery has a small menu of sandwiches, charcuterie boards, and snacks - most of which are meat or dairy based. The brewery is so small in staff, we all do everything - which means I am behind the bar, and in the kitchen prepping, cooking, and serving food, which yes, includes handling and working with animal products. I hate it, but it’s what pays my bills right now.
Since I’ve been hired, I’ve influenced the owner to add several vegan options to the menu (there was none at all before.) We now have vegan queso (which is our only queso option and our best seller), a vegan cheese charcuterie board, and an optional vegan mozzarella substitute for sandwiches. I was pretty proud of myself for this.
I’ve recently been promoted to Kitchen manager, which means I’m now fully in charge of everything that operates in the kitchen, the menu, ordering and keeping stock of food and ingredients, etc. This promotion has really been making me feel guilt and shame for what I do. I’m incredibly passionate about veganism and I feel like I’m going against my core values by contributing to the purchase and selling of animal products.
I’m wondering if any of y’all have ever been in the same position as me. Am I a hypocrite? Does this take away from my veganism? What should I do?
