2021.12.05 22:57 seacobs Is it me or most if not all sci-fi books are just rehashes of old ideas?
Like every book falls into the unoriginal category of space opera or simulated reality genre. Am I crazy to think we're still at a primitive stage of worldbuilding as a science? Someone mentioned this novel called Permutation City, but there's nothing there. It essentially falls into the simulated reality genre. It makes a bold ontological assertion, which is just a gimmick, but doesn't really use that ontological assertion to produce a really compelling and original world. It's more of the same. Now, I just wish someone would give me 10 million so I can show what I mean by good worldbuilding.

2021.12.05 22:57 MikeLanglois Currently on holiday in the US from the UK, is it safe to do my daily searches?
The rewards page has loaded up different punch cards and a +500 for setting my search engine to bing. It looks like I am also getting the US daily search amounts instead of the UK.
Is it safe to do my dailies while on holiday or will they think im up to no good?

2021.12.05 22:57 mmmbutwhatdoiknow Hello all! I’m looking for some wonderful team building ideas. Small group of 8. I’ve search Google and have found a few, but I’d love some feedback on ones you yourself have experienced. Thank you in advance.

I struggle with character dialogue. Are there any exercises or resources on how to write better dialogue. I've gotten the same note that my dialogue tends to be too expositional. I think that's fine for a first draft but now I'm starting revising.

I need all the good vibes I can get. I decided to order an Evvy test to figure out why my vulva is on fire. I might have trouble finding a doctor close to me that recognizes these tests and will treat what shows up on the test, but I’ll worry about that later since I don’t need a signature to get results.

2021.12.05 22:57 lilyqueenx why are dungeons taking so long?
pretty much the title. decided to start leveling pal and got malikah’s well for leveling. the run took us nearly 35 minutes to complete (no disconnects, no wipes) and i genuinely don’t understand why it took so long. to be fair reaper has only been out for 3 days so i don’t expect people to have the perfect combo down but is it too much to ask for people to use AOE’s? i haven’t seen any no-dps sage’s yet (thankfully) but reaper seems to be a different story. are dungeons taking so long now cause of stat squish?

2021.12.05 22:57 Antony_222x "Changrettas" peaky blinders spin off
Thoughts on a peaky blinders spin off but following the uprise of luca changretta and his "Gang" and with it ending with him meeting tommy or showing the changrettas POV of the war, thought his character was interesting and to only get him as a side character for 2 seasons ( kind of the main character imo) seems a waste of a potential story

2021.12.05 22:57 Responsible_Aileen 加密货币大规模跳水，最大跌幅超20%，比特币们到底咋了？
According to the interface report, on the afternoon of December 4th, the market data showed that the bitcoin quotation fell below 42,000 US dollars for a short time, with a 24-hour drop of over 20% and a minimum of 41,967 US dollars. Ethereum fell below $3,500, with a 24-hour drop of over 21%. In the past one hour, the contract market broke out in the whole network with a total of 1.13 billion US dollars, and broke out in 24 hours with 2.23 billion US dollars. After entering December, the cryptocurrency market continued to fall. On December 1st, the highest price of Bitcoin hit $59,000, close to the high of $60,000. But since then, the waterfall market has started. On December 3rd, Bitcoin dropped by more than 12% in the day, with a drop of more than 5,000 US dollars, reaching around 51,600 US dollars at the lowest, and began to test the 50,000 US dollars mark. On December 4th, Bitcoin didn't stop its decline. After falling below the $50,000 mark in one fell swoop, it stuck around $42,000 for a short time, and the intraday decline exceeded $10,000, the lowest price since September 30th. Ethereum, the world's second largest cryptocurrency, followed the decline of Bitcoin. At present, the quotation has dropped by nearly 20% from the historical high of $4,898, but the fluctuation range is less than Bitcoin. To be honest, many people will be surprised to see the massive diving of cryptocurrency. What's going on here? Why is there such a large-scale fluctuation of cryptocurrencies, and what about the root causes? First of all, in fact, we have repeatedly said before that cryptocurrency is not in the real sense. The so-called currency is just the value of digital assets, not because of its actual value, but because we all agree on the value of this thing. Therefore, under such a background, digital assets will inevitably have large-scale fluctuations, and the amplitude of such fluctuations may far exceed the imagination of ordinary people. That's why we always see that whether bitcoin or other so-called digital cryptocurrencies, there will often be large-scale sharp price rises and falls. This is because its own value lacks an anchoring mechanism, so its own price will inevitably rise or fall with the change of everyone's mood, which is the core reason for the large-scale fluctuation of cryptocurrencies at present. Secondly, let's look at the current situation, which is an important manifestation of the serious emotional instability of the whole market. The new mutant strain of the virus is spreading all over the world, and the whole world market is in a turbulent environment. In fact, these so-called cryptocurrencies are also facing enormous pressure and challenges. Once this large-scale fluctuation becomes a reality, it will probably directly drive the sharp rise and fall of the whole cryptocurrency system. Coupled with the large-scale change of the overall inflation level in the United States, the change of inflation has also driven the large-scale fluctuation of the whole market, so the final result is reflected in various unexpected violent shocks of cryptocurrency prices. Thirdly, in the face of the current large-scale diving of the whole cryptocurrency, in fact, we should have a full understanding, that is, the whole cryptocurrency is still in a mechanism of violent fluctuations, and there are a large number of market participants, which are actually in a state of being cut off, because most of digital currency is controlled by a small number of market participants, and the situation of this phenomenon may be more serious than that of the early A-share market. Therefore, if anyone wants to participate, it is necessary to have a deep understanding of the risks involved.

2021.12.05 22:57 Bfreak is 95c and 10% throttling on AIDA64 normal with a custom loop? 2 x 240 rad, 1x 120 rad cooling a 3090 and an i9-990k.
Hi all, as per title, I put my loop together 6 months ago, and was very happy with GPU temps, so never really thought about CPU, and never experienced issues. GPU sits nicely at around 65c-70c with a full load (stress test or mining).
However when I fired up AIDA64 CPU stress, I was surprised to see CPU temp shoot right up to 99c and stay there even with max fan and pump speeds. It's also throttling by around 10%. I've never used aida64 before, so this could be normal, I have no idea.
My loop runs res>pump>front double rad>3090>rear single rad>CPU>res
I've never encountered any issues with either mining or rendering in blender, which is the main use of the PC.
Thanks for suggestions.
