    [–] Notification says Mewtwo leaving Monday, but no updates on the canceled raid hour davidjschloss 2 points ago in TheSilphRoad

    Totally. My wife just started casually playing so she could hang out with my son and I while we play together. Thanks to a trip to NYC and some hours spent questing for special research, she leveled up to about 17 very quickly, but she’s only been playing a few weeks total. She has something like 8 shiny Pokémon, including a shiny Rayquaza. I have a lot of shiny, but it took me 3 years to amass them. She also got a 100 IV and that too k me a really long time too.

    [–] Notification says Mewtwo leaving Monday, but no updates on the canceled raid hour davidjschloss 2 points ago in TheSilphRoad

    First time Mew was in EX Raids I went like a year without an invite. Finally got an invite, and didn’t have enough people show up to do the raid.

    Now I’m away in Wyoming during this availability and not a single person has shown up to a raid I’ve seen spawning.


    [–] My little birdie bros telling me good night :) davidjschloss 1 points ago in AnimalsBeingBros

    Well they sort of are. They’re waiting for the mom (and sometimes dad) to feed them, which they do by sticking food down their throats with their beaks.

    [–] Navy Confirms UFO Videos Posted by Blink 182 Rocker Are Real And Should Not Have Been Released davidjschloss 27 points ago in news

    Yup. So the cameras are on a device that allows the camera to move steadily despite the movement of the plane. That’s a gimbal. They’re used all the time in cameras these days—every camera drone is a flying gimbal.

    So basically the camera is panning from left to right, and for most of the travel of the panning, the gimbal is moving the camera and stabilizing the image. When the camera swings all the way through the range of motion of the gimbal, it’s can’t keep turning.

    Think of it like one of those lawn sprinklers that go across the lawn and then whip back the other way, the ones that pop out of the ground. Imagine you’re running the same speed as the sprinkler is turning. From the point of view of the sprinkler, you’d look stabilized. Once you hit the farthest point the sprinkler can turn, even if you keep going the same speed, to the sprinkler you’d appear to accelerate suddenly out of view.

    [–] LPT: If someone pulls the classic "I'll send you a check" scam on Craigslist give them the mailing address to USPS Mail Fraid davidjschloss 3 points ago in LifeProTips

    But the USPS didn’t move a house. They have a specific address for the specific purpose of conducting mail fraud investigations. It’s their mail because it’s their address in their own government organization.

    So yeah mail sent to that department is theirs to open.

    And while not 100% the same topic, here’s some info on personal mail at work.

    [–] Have you ever left a subreddit because it was too toxic? What was it? davidjschloss 4 points ago in AskReddit

    There was one recently where a guy didn’t take any photos of his wife during the reception when they had purposefully given each other cameras to do so. He photographed birds and such while she captured him smiling and laughing.

    People explained, he got it.

    Probably the first time I’ve seen that thread help someone in a long long time.

    [–] No raid hour today davidjschloss 34 points ago in TheSilphRoad

    Yes IIRC. When they first hit.

    [–] ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Reboot From Sam Esmail Headed For NBCU Streaming Service davidjschloss 13 points ago in television

    Best thing in the first show was when Pegasus engaged in battle. IIRC Baltar was in a Cylon raider. I remember it as him saying “attack the Battlestar!” and the Cylon says “which Battlestar?”

    It was a bit of foreshadowing for the comic genus of the battle droids.

    You got four belts!! I only got the one belt. :(

    [–] What are your top 3 games on Quest, in terms of hours put in? davidjschloss 2 points ago in OculusQuest

    It’s mixed but worth getting. I’m a recurve bow shooter irl and the mechanics-aside from auto nocking the arrow and an unlimited supply of arrows-is surprising realistic, with a need to adjust for distance and tracking.

    Single player is frustrating. There are multiple tower locations with the teleport achieved by shooting an arrow into one of the other towers. It’s not possible to switch fast enough when the levels get harder to really have a chance. (Spells do help with this.)

    Multiplayer is fun. It’s nice to play with a bunch of good people and communication is push to talk which is better than open mic.

    Overall I’ll probably keep coming back to it since it does seem applicable to actual archery.

    [–] Beat Saber Won't Uninstall? (Even after uninstalling through Sidequest) davidjschloss 1 points ago in OculusQuest

    On mine, and I suspect on OP, you can’t ever update it. It just tells you you need an update, then you do, and it tells you that you need an update.

    [–] Found a scratch on my lenses, is it possible this lense cover could be responsible for it? davidjschloss 1 points ago in OculusQuest

    Did you use the spacer that came in the box for glasses?

    I find if you use it you need to put the quest on a bit differently. Loosen everything, put onto face, pull straps to tighten it. Don’t pull too much so you don’t make contact with glasses.

    The hardest to remember is when taking off the headset I find.

    [–] Another 'I just got the 8 update and everything is broken' post. davidjschloss 1 points ago in OculusQuest

    OBTW - bright sunlight in from a window can really blind the sensors. I can’t play most games mid day in my bedroom if the blinds are open, the light seems to wash out half the room and leave the other half to dark.

    [–] Another 'I just got the 8 update and everything is broken' post. davidjschloss 2 points ago in OculusQuest

    I think this is a lot of the issues. I find that if I’m using my controllers on Racquet NX and the batteries are low,i get a lot more random hits all over the place instead of f whereI was pointing.

    Eneloop like most rechargeable are 1.2V.
