Device: Windows 10 Desktop OS: 1909 CPU: i5 6th gen RAM: 16GB Wireless Network Card: TP-Link Archer T8E connected via PCI-E SSID: Using 1 SSID with Dual band operation with Band Steering Issue: I have been having issues with my computer connecting to 2.4Ghz instead of 5Ghz. I have found disconnecting and reconnecting to WiFi has been resolved this but I don't always noticed until I find my internet speeds are a lot slower than normal I am going to try setting up a second SSID with just 5Ghz, but right now I am wondering if there is a fault with the wireless adapter Screenshot of driver info https://imgur.com/77CixOt I went into the driver settings to see if I could select - Preferred Band and set to 5Ghz Devmgmt TP-LINK 802.11ac Network Adapter Properties Advanced Preferred Band But my adapter doesn't give that option which was a solution I found when Googling Driver date is 6/02/2014 but it is up to date Downloaded the driver direct from https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/download/archer-t8e/#Driver But that was the same one Uninstalled/reinstalled Ran a netsh wlan show drivers It doesn't even list 802.11ac but lists 802.11n twice Have I never been using 802.11ac? My original goal was to set it to prefer 5Ghz over 2.4Ghz but now I think there might an something else going on Any help would be appreciated, any further info required please let me know
2020.09.20 06:37 gbacardiI had four Regina Pizzeria pizzas delivered to my home in Portland, Oregon. Despite being nearly lost in the devastating wildfires and possibly unsafe to eat, they arrived today. This is my review.
What's up, doughboys listeners? A while back I teased I had these on the way and would provide a review, so here it goes! (feel free to skip to final thoughts because this will be too long) My birthday was in July and a good friend of mine who isn't a listener, but hears all about the show unwillingly from me, decided to gift me the Choose Your Own 4-Pack available here. I chose one of each: Cheese, Pepperoni, Sausage, and Meatball. Despite ordering in early July, they wouldn't be shipped to me until September. No biggie, it was something to look forward to in these dismal times! Well, at the time of ordering, we weren't aware that the times were set to become even more dismal with historically devastating wildfires taking over the state of Oregon this month. Last week was very intense here. We almost had to evacuate the city due to the fires getting extremely close and our air pollution being so terrible that we were in uncharted scientific waters as far as what sort of long-lasting health effects there would be on our bodies. So, of course this would be the week that the order is slated to arrive! Tracking information showed a projected delivery date of Tuesday, 9/15. After checking the tracking status many times and seeing delays obviously related to the world between here and Colorado being on fire, they finally arrived this morning, 9/19. At the very top of the package was this little note from Regina Pizzeria themselves. Noting the disclaimer about the product having been frozen upon shipping and urging me to continue that process, I opened the bag that contained the pizzas. To my surprise, despite having been conceivably prepared and sent as long as a week ago and sitting in various FedEx warehouses during the apocalypse, the pizzas were still fairly cold! They definitely were nowhere near frozen, but they were so cold that they could have been taken out of a refrigerator. I set aside the sausage variety, as that is the pie I just ate in its entirety (come on, they're like a smaller medium), and put the rest into the freezer. The cooking directions are pretty bad. I preheated the oven and threw the pizza in, setting the timer for 5 minutes but pretty much knowing it was going to need more. Sure enough, once the 5 minutes were up the pizza was maybe half done. After about 10 minutes, it looked done enough so I took it out. Keep in mind this pizza was essentially fully thawed and fresh. I imagine the frozen cook will be much different and I may crank the heat up a little. I'm also considering thawing the next one I cook rather than cooking from frozen. I was honestly surprised at how much it livened up once reheated. The cheese was bubbling, the house smelled like I was making a fresh pizza, and I was very excited. Here is the pizza after resting for 3 minutes and being cut. It certainly didn't look like a frozen or store-bought pie. However, taste is what matters most... The crust is thin and crunchy and I am here for all of it. It was very delicious. They managed to make the underside perfectly thin and crisp and the outside perfectly soft. I really wish I had some ranch or marinara on me, but alas. Lesson learned for next time. The sauce was just sweet enough to be noticeable, but not overpowering. I really like this aspect of the pizza, as it reminded me of the Italian-America origins of the chain. I love cooking Italian-American and am familiar with the old practice of adding a little sugar to bring out the sweetness of the muted canned tomatoes. The sausage was good as well! The texture was soft and bouncy. The flavor wasn't out of control with any seasoning or fennel, but definitely wasn't bland. The cheese was quite honestly the only thing that suffered really noticeable quality degradation from the shipping. Near the crust the cheese was fine. It had a great texture and good flavor. Near the center, however, it had that gummy texture and kind of blandness I associate with lower quality cafeteria pizzas. I intend on allowing the next pizza to cook maybe 90 second longer to give that cheese a chance to brown more and hopefully improve. It was far from terrible, however. Just a noticeable low on a pie of highs, budddddy. Final thoughts: Until today, Regina Pizzeria is a chain that existed only as a legend to me. Having listened to doughboys for years, I knew it as Mitch's favorite pizza joint and as a symbol of his undying love and nostalgia for his childhood. The payoff we all received from the live episode in Boston is something that can never be accurately described to anyone who just doesn't, you know, know. I knew getting these wouldn't be close to the restaurant experience. The final product certainly betrayed its lack of freshness in some ways, but surprised me with a high quality execution in others. Are the four (kinda small tbh) pizzas worth the $100 my wonderful friend paid? No, definitely not. However, as a gift to someone like me that has an emotional attachment to the product, it is certainly worth it. As I mentioned earlier, things here in PDX have been dismal. They were dismal before the fires and will continue to be. It's been a rough week and coming home to these being edible today was, truthfully, something I desperately needed. 4.5 forks. I look forward to eating the other three varieties, especially the meatball pizza with the sliced presentation.

2020.09.20 06:34 Astaleadeindigo la End DVD + More
🔵indigo la End will release a DVD version of their recent online concert! It will include a photo book, essay written by Kawatani, and a behind the scenes of the live. You can purchase it on CD Japan, which is what I did. They say it will arrive by the release date, which is 11/4 :). If you order it on amazon, a tote bag will come along as a bonus item. Anywhere else and you will get a poster instead of the tote. Link to the DVD Version Link to the Blu-Ray Version 🔵They are also releasing a fan club exclusive single. I believe the two songs in the single will be in the album they are releasing this year, so you could just wait. indigo told their fans that their new album “Yakou Himitsu” will be released when it gets colder, but from how things are going they are really trying to perfect this album. So it might be around December when they actually release it. They did announce that they were not going to release it digitally, meaning you have to buy the cd in order to listen to it. It’s only about 10 bucks.

Crysis/Warhead are two of my favorite games and I've played an install of Crysis on Steam quite extensively with the Tactical Expansion mod. I love C4'ing jeeps and driving them into bases and generally pretending I'm the Predator. The remastered release caught me by surprise yesterday - I had seen the trailer but lost track of the release date and was pretty happy to find it was out. Anyway, I had some thoughts based on my experiences regarding gameplay: First off, my PC specs:
EVGA gtx 1070 GPU with a slight overclock in MSI (recommended 1660ti / minimum 1050ti)
Acer X34P monitor (ultrawide 2k / 120hz)
Graphics settings Asking Crysis to set optimal settings changed all my graphics options to medium (which gave me some chest pains). Still, I'm definitely dropping some frames. At medium settings I doubt this is hardware limitations and suspect its just poor optimization, but its just a feeling. When the 2080ti's drop to $5 each I'll maybe buy a few and go quadruple SLI and see how it runs ;) Gameplay changes (in no particular order)
First off, nanosuit mode control is defaulted to match Crysis 2/3 where Q is Armor and E is Cloak, with space/shift activating speed/strength as needed. I'm not a fan of this and fortunately the settings do have a "classic mode" option which uses the mouse wheel click to open the suit options. Unfortunately, classic mode is a little clunky since there are still some changes. First off, armor mode, which was formerly the default in Crysis 1, has the hexagon overlay when in use like in 2/3, meaning 95% of my gameplay is encumbered by this texture over the corners of my field of view. I think I did find the image files for this overlay and may experiment with saving some transparent image files over these to see if I can remove them. Walking around in speed/strength mode is a good way to die quick on higher difficulties. I am happy to see that the power in the nanosuit seems to last longer than the original game, so you can run or cloak a few seconds further than you used to before recharging. When in Strength mode, you need to hold down Space for a second for the enhanced jump to take place, which is a little annoying.
The keys for secondary controls like weapon attachments and select fire modes are all changed around a little, which is annoying but not unexpected
Enemy AI seems to have had some improvements despite some bugs (which I'm sure will be patched eventually). I've noticed enemies flanking me on both sides and in higher difficulties I seem to die much quicker than in the original 2007 Delta mode, often within a few seconds even in Armor mode if 1-3 enemies are firing on me. Still, I will sporadically find enemies which do not engage and just stand still. At one point I was frustrated at not being able to enter a jeep until I noticed a North Korean soldier was calmly sitting in one of the back seats, probably hoping to escape my notice (it didn't work)
On a related note, enemies in Delta difficulty seem to have some serious aimbot. I barely have time to decloak before nearby enemies will snap their guns to my position. I admit I have not tried lower difficulties to see if this changes. Enemies on Delta are also serious bullet sponges, though headshots are still an instakill.
Sound design is gorgeous and is probably what I noticed most since I recently installed a decent subwoofer in my room. Here is a short video showing the Sniper Rifle sound. This is the highlight I honestly did not expect, but the sounds are great. The "nitrous" in the vehicles also sounds pretty cool
Physics may need some work. One of my favorite pastimes is to get into a jeep and bail right before ramming the car into another car, but about half the time it doesn't blow up. Generally everything in the game seems a little more robust as far as damage - even lobbing grenades/rifle grenades at vehicles rarely blows them up, though specifically shooting the gas tanks still works pretty well. This could be a positive or negative though - in both Crysis and Warhead I've died more than once by walking past a random barrel the wrong way
Maybe I just missed them the first few times, but I'd swear the C4 charges aren't introduced until much later in the game than usual
Graphics: Leaving this for last since I my hardware is a bit lacking, but I did see some gorgeous God Rays. I did not notice many other changes in ground or water textures
(Possible) Bugs I don't really count these against the game since I bet these could be easily patched out soon, but:
Crouch ("c") seems to need a double tap or is otherwise slow to respond
Changing graphics settings while paused in game has resulted in a .exe hang every time, forcing me to end the process
Hitboxes may need some adjustment. I'd swear some of the gun sights are almost sighted wrong given how much I'm missing some more distant but stationary targets
Summary Well, I feel like I've wasted my time so far but its kinda my fault. Since I can't run the game on max settings I'm basically playing a non-modded "low res" version of Crysis when I have a perfectly find install on Steam (with a sexy weapon mod at that). Again, I don't count the bugs and rough patches in gameplay as negatives quite yet, I assume there will be some patching of the game in the near future.
2020.09.20 06:16 SucitrafEven though it's been 6 years, Funday Monday always cheers me up. Happy 10th Birthday (a little early)
Tomorrow (USA time) September 20th, is the 10th anniversary of Day's Funday Mondays. It is what got me way more interested in StarCraft 2 multiplayer, and it was a great way to introduce folks into a game that is normally a little daunting. I compiled a list of all the Funday Mondays (and their original Air Date) as part of a challenge to myself to run through them all this week. I also have added notes for some, like 6 pool challenge (probably don't want to kill off half your workers). You can find the list HERE I'm not sure how many of you remember or care, but I'm hoping to run into a few folks tomorrow asking if people know "what day it is" and/or other random hijinx! Happy "Dicking Around"! Here's the original for folks who haven't seen it.
2020.09.20 06:11 ReversedenOWelcome! Some information to get started.
So it seems that you've found this subreddit for Spellbound, and upcoming fixed price trading card game, produced by Electrum Games LLC. We are currently in no way, shape, or form affiliated, endorsed, or promoted by either Spellbound or Electrum Games LLC. We are just fans of the premise of the game, and are hopeful it may succeed in all of its goals it wishes to achieve, most notably fixing the near random distribution model with booster packs found in many successful TCG's that make it difficult for everyone to be on a level playing field with card rarity/ price/ availability, while still making considerations for collectors. We wish to establish a place to help foster meaningful discussion and create better feedback for the developers and build the community, so that it may stand the test of time. We do advise checking out the current Spellbound Website to keep up to date with current developments, and opt into their email list to get additional information or occasional questionnaires to help make this game the best it can possibly be, from the feedback we as individual players can provide. This post will be amended on occasions as needed with new links, so check back occasionally to see if you missed anything or need to catch up.

So we just fixed by far the most common crash/freeze that was occurring in Heists. If you were stockpiling contracts to avoid losing them to this bug, it should be okay to play them now. There are still many other issues we're working through including other crashes, and we'll get those out as soon as we can. Specifically there's a client crash that occurs in Predictive mode that we're working on a fix for now. I have been keeping the weekend hotfix thread up to date.
2020.09.20 06:02 human_experience123Looking for place for extremely customizable notebook
I'm looking to design a notebook where I can (It's basically kind of like Passion Planner without calendar date format, just a sketchbook)- - Design custom cover - Dotted/Lined paper - Perforated paper - Pages where I can add text/templates BONUS - Can add pages in the back with a sticker pack I know I'm asking a lot and I'm sure there's something out there but I'm losing hope with Google. Should I start calling local print shops in my city? Or maybe look internationally like on Alibaba? Thanks! I saw this post that someone else created which recommended Citrus Book Bindery, but I don't think they have the level of customization I want-https://www.reddit.com/notebooks/comments/iun4p8/looking_for_customizable_notebook_website/
The Broncos own a 15-8-1 (.646) all-time regular-season record against the Steelers.
The Broncos have won four of the last five games against the Steelers, including two playoff wins (2011 Wild Card game, 2015 Divisional Round). Four of those five games were decided by seven points or less.
Drew Lock can become the first Broncos QB since Peyton Manning in 2014 to record four consecutive games with a QB rating greater than 90.0.
Five-time Pro Bowl defensive end Jurrell Casey, who recorded six tackles (3 solo) and two pass deflections in his Broncos debut against Tennessee in Week 1, needs one tackle to reach 500 for his career (would join Calais Campbell, Linval Joseph and Ndamukong Suh as active defensive lineman with 500 tackles).
Brandon McManus needs one field goal to pass Matt Prater (141) for third all-time in team history.
Lloyd Cushenberry III became the second rookie center (J.D. Walton, 2010) and 12th rookie offensive linemen in team history to start in Week 1. Cushenberry played all 59 of the team’s offensive snaps in Week 1.
No team has blocked more kicks (six) than Denver since 2018. Shelby Harris blocked his second career field goal attempt against Tennessee in Week 1.
2020.09.20 05:54 slightlyassholic[Tales From the Terran Republic] The Morning After Post Mortem Pt 2
Just what it says, bunch of people trying to figure out WTF and WTF they are going to do! Oh, and Craxina makes a new friend. He's a really nice guy too! The rest of this series can be found [here](https://www.reddit.com/HFY/wiki/series/tales_from_the_terran_republic) *** “So, what about the jail-break?” the Prime Minister asked. “Am I correct in assuming that they are related?” “Almost certainly,” Captain Soto replied. “It is almost a certainty that the same ‘Reaper’ was used, what few readings we can get match perfectly. We were fortunate and a sensor operator at the spire was able to launch some recon drones and get them properly oriented before the conclusion of extraction.” “And who was ‘extracted’, again?” Prime Minister Augustine asked as she looked over her notes. “Helen Mongrave,” Glenn Maxwell replied with a scowl. “Someone highly placed in the conspiracy against the Republic with detailed knowledge of many of her co-conspirators.” “Yeah,” Admiral Pierce snarked, “Gotta hate those conspiracies against the Republic, don’t ya?” “Got something to say, Pierce?” Glenn Maxwell snarled, rising to his feet. “Not at the moment,” Admiral Pierce replied as he started to stand, “When I do you will be the first person to know, buddy.” “You will be the second to know,” General Litton said as she also rose, “’Cause he’s gonna call me first.” “The third,” a man dressed in a plain grey suit said as he started to stand. “Sit the fuck down,” the prime minister snarled, “and shut the fuck up!” Everyone froze. The Prime Minister never cursed, ever. They all quietly sat down. “I am just about sick and tired of this bullshit,” the prime minister ranted. “I have a fucking Republic to hold together and that’s exactly what I’m going to do even if I have to fire everyone in this fucking room and start over! Understand?” “Yes, ma’am,” Admiral Pierce said, so cowed that Admiral Saysangkhi started giggling, her giggles freezing in her throat when the Prime Minister turned her withering glare in her direction. “Now, until someone actually pulls off a coup,” she continued. “My wrinkled ass is in charge and my wrinkled ass takes exception to some bitch blowing up one of my solar systems, regardless of how justified some individuals think she might be.” She rose to her feet as her voice increased in volume. “Now we are here to figure out exactly what the fuck is going on and exactly what the fuck we are going to do about it. The next asshole who sidetracks this discussion or starts a pissing match can put their ID on the desk, take a walk, and keep walking! Got it?” Everyone just sat there silently. “Good,” she said as she sat back down. “Now I understand that two people were ‘extracted’?” “Yes, ma’am,” Glenn said in a very subdued tone. “In addition to Helen Mongrave, a Federation Ex-pat by the name of Sheloran was also removed from the detention facility.” “Sheloran?” the Prime Minister asked. “Why does that name sound familiar?” “She went viral, ma’am,” Glenn replied. “The singing frog?” “Oh!” the Prime Minister smiled. “I loved that! Shame she killed all those people.” She looked at Glenn in confusion. “Why?” “We have no idea but we are going to find out!” “Ahem,” the silver-haired woman in the green blazer coughed discreetly. Glenn glared at her. “Dibs.” the woman smiled. *** “Ok, let’s put the big tent over here!” Craxina yelled over a cheap electronic megaphone, “and… fuck… put the porta-potties over there!” The parking lot of the Drop of Oil was in a state of barely controlled chaos as a mob of prostitutes, temp labor, and a mob of volunteers all ran about unpacking crates, erecting tents, and assembling furniture. “Craxi!” “What?” Craxina snapped as she whirled about. “Sorry, Littlefoot, what’s up?” “I just got off of the phone with Clarence,” she said. “He is getting a shipment in just for us!” “And how much is that gonna cost?” Craxina asked dubiously. “Nothing!” Littlefoot replied happily, “Well, nothing until we buy it, just what we want to buy, once we see it.” “And you didn’t promise him anything?” “Well,” Littlefoot giggled, “nothing that he wants. He says that he’s happily married!” Craxina laughed. “He figures that there will be more than a few ‘little guys’ wanting weapons so he’s getting ahead of the demand. He also said that he will hold classes just for us!” Craxina looked at Littlefoot suspiciously. “Sounds awfully nice of him,” Craxina replied. “What’s his angle?” “He said that all he wants is first crack at our business, that’s all. No pressure.” “Hmm,” Craxina said after thinking way too hard for her comfort, “Ok, first crack but no promises, got it?” “Like I said,” Littlefoot grinned. “I’ve only promised ONE thing so far and he wasn’t interested.” “That just means he’s gonna fuck us harder later on,” Craxina grumbled. “Nuh-uh! Clarence is nice! You’ll see!” “Yeah,” Craxina muttered “we’ll see.” “When did you turn into such a sour-snatch?” Littlefoot chided. “When I had to be in charge, that’s when!” Craxina snapped. “I miss ONE thing and… poof!” she exclaimed throwing all of her arms wide. “It’s all over! You can trust this Clarence guy if you want to,” she ranted, “I can’t! He pulls one bullshit Terran trick and we are done!” “He isn’t like that...” Littlefoot said defensively. “If you don’t trust him why don’t you send the fish to talk to him?” “Oh yeah, our ‘friend’ the fish,” Craxina said rolling her eyes. “Isn’t he?” “Oh he is,” Craxina said sarcastically, “He’s a huge friend with a huge hourly rate! Do you have any idea how deep in the hole I am with him already?” “Didn’t he take a cut?” “A cut of what?” Craxina asked, nearly yelling. “A cut of fucking what? Sheloran had that deal because-” Craxina suddenly fell silent. Littlefoot, like most of the others, didn’t know about absolutely everything that went on at the Drop. “Because of what?” Littlefoot asked suspiciously. “Never mind!” Craxina huffed. “Sheloran had that deal. We don’t. We pay by the hour!” Craxina winced. They were paying by the hour because she fucked up. Baxlon’s patience was immense, but not infinite. He was still their legal counsel, but it was now at his hourly rate, thanks to one “pleeese” too many during the third panicked late-night phone call in a single evening. Who knew that kalent don’t take being jarred awake very well at all. Forgive her for not being a xeno-sleepologist! “Because of what?” Littlefoot pressed, narrowing her big, innocent-looking eyes. She had always suspected that there was more going on than coffee, hookers, and decade-old games. I mean, who buys games on crystals anyway? That never made sense. “Because of nothing!” Craxina said defensively, crossing her little arms. “Look, Craxi,” Littlefoot squeaked, “I love you, we all do, but we deserve to know what we are getting into here. If there is something going on that we don’t know about, something that really got the Drop burned down and Ploxni…” “You got it backwards!” Craxi snapped. “The Drop didn’t get burned down because of Sheloran. It got burned down because of us!” Littlefoot recoiled as if she had been struck. “What… what do you mean?” she squeaked. “Oh shit,” Craxina sighed. “Sorry, Littlefoot,” she said. “I’m just being a bitch. Forget I said anything.” “What do you mean it was because of us?” “Craxi!” a shaggy ottoman yelled out. Thank the Creators! “Ommuni!” Craxi yelled out in relief as she ran at a full sprint towards her (and away from Littlefoot). “Wait!!!” Littlefoot shouted after her as she waddled urgently in pursuit. *** “Well, hello there!” Craxina said with a huge smile. Standing in front of her was the cutest human she had even seen! “Um, hi,” he said sheepishly, nervously running his fingers through the cutest poofiest hair! The way it was cut made it look almost like a male of her species! So cute! He smiled. Oh my creators, he had the cutest teeth. They were shiny and pointy just like a males! Of course they were fake but the way he smiled and cocked his head sent little tingles shooting though her happy places! “He asked for you specifically!” Ommuni said. “Are you ‘working’?” “I am now!” Craxina exclaimed with a happy little squeak. “C’mon!” she enthused as she grabbed his hand and dragged him towards one of the tents. *** “Wow!” Craxina purred as she snuggled with Bryce (that was his name) a little later, “I should be paying you!” “Aww,” he smiled, flashing those adorable teeth, “Thanks!” “Look!” she said caressing his face with her tail, “my fur is still standing on end! That was amazing!” Bryce just smiled and stroked her fur. “Oooh!” she crooned. Bryce looked down at her with concern. “Your muscles are in a state!” he said as the stroking turned into a massage. “Oh! Oh yes! Right there! Ooooh!” “You have so much tension locked in there,” he said as he expertly massaged her back, gently applying pressure to key points, causing immediate relaxation.” “It’s because of all of this bullshit,” she mumbled dreamily. She hadn’t been this relaxed in ages. “Bullshit?” “Oh, Bryce,” Craxina mumbled, “It’s been awful… I’ve mmmmh… I’ve had to…” “Because of all the drama?” “Drama isn’t the word for it,” she muttered as her eyes drifted closed. “It’s been horrible, with the Harkeen, and Sheloran… Oh Creators, Sheloran, what she did… and now I’m all alone and everyone… everyone…” “Yeah, I saw that on the news,” Bryce smiled as one of his hands drifted up and started massaging her neck, his fingers gently resting on key muscle groups. “She ran the place didn’t she?” “Yeah,” Craxina mumbled with a blissful smile, “The Drop was her baby, I… I just… whimper...” “What?” Craxina started to quietly weep. “I just fucked it all up!” she sobbed. “Hey… Hey…” Bryce said reassuring as he swept her up in his arms, his hand still on her neck. “Shhh… It’s ok…” “No it isn’t!” Craxina said as she clung to him. “If I hadn’t made her let me work here then she would have just been selling media and coffee. I… I...” “Shhh,” Bryce said stroking her head, “From what the news said it was the loans that set them off, not you girls.” “Yeah, but they were already...” “From the sounds of it,” he said as he kissed her, “She would have gotten involved no matter what. If it wasn’t you, it would have been someone. She seems like a really good person.” “Oh she is,” Craxina said, calming down a little. “She is the bestest person I know! And generous, and brave! Oh Creators she is so brave! She would go anywhere, square off against anyone, to help out one of the girls!” “So...” Bryce said as he gently stroked her neck, his fingers carefully resting on pulse points, “have you heard from her, since, you know,” “No,” Craxina replied, “you know how hard it is to get to a phone in a normal jail. I can only imagine how hard it is where… where she is.” “Huh,” he said as he carefully read her body, “has anyone heard from her? Is she ok?” “Oh she’s freaked out about her case,” Craxina replied melting into him, “but Baxlon says that she’s ok.” “So this Baxlon person has talked to her?” “Yeah, but he says that he couldn’t get through to her last time he tried. They said she was unavailable,” Craxina mumbled as Bryce carefully maneuvered her back onto the mattress, “Boy was he pissed off about that… Oh yes! Right there!” “So Baxlon hasn’t heard from her recently?” “Well, not since we stopped talking anyway, the asshole...” she sighed as her whole body relaxed. This was wonderful. “You aren’t talking?” “Yeah, I pissed him off.” “Sounds like an asshole,” he smiled as he stroked her. “Ooooh,” Craxina purred, “(giggle) Yeah, he’s an asshole but I really fucked up. I… I really don’t know what I’m doing and I guess I called him one time too many.” “Well it sucks being alone,” he said. “Yeah,” Craxina sighed sadly. “Um...” Bryce said nervously as he rolled her over onto her back and started to gently caress her body, “I hope I’m not being one of ‘those guys’, but I’m in town for awhile and I’m alone too and I was wondering if… um… I mean if it… (sigh)… Sorry… I don’t mean to assume.” He cocked his head, flashing those darling teeth, in a sheepish grin. “No!” Craxina said sitting up rapidly, “it’s ok! What were you wondering?” “I mean, if you want, maybe… maybe we could go have some dinner later?-- I’d pay! I mean I don’t want to… shit...” “That would be great!” Craxina squeaked, “And you don’t have to pay me...” she flashed him a flirtatious glance. “If you are paying for dinner, of course!” “Oh! Great! Absolutely! (giggle)” he covered his face as his eyes smiled, just like a nervous male! It was so adorable! Craxina threw her arms around him, nuzzling his neck happily. Then she flashed him a wicked smile. “You know, you did pay for the hour...” *** “We are talking in circles,” the Prime Minister said in frustration. “Yeah,” General Litton agreed, “It was better when we were fighting. At least that wasn’t depressing.” “So, does anyone have any idea what we can do besides hope she runs out of missiles?” “She won’t,” a grey-haired, heavily-decorated naval captain said, speaking for the first time. “You say that like you’re sure,” Glenn Maxwell said. “I know the woman,” he said. “If she can get a dozen nukes, she can get two dozen. If she can get two dozen then she can get a hundred. And if she can afford whatever that fucking Reaper costs she can afford two hundred. If Gloria Samuels has come to play then she has come to play. She has sufficient munitions to accomplish her ‘mission’, count on it.” “All of us know this gentleman,” Admiral Saysangkhi said after he finished speaking, “But in case you don’t, Captain Bartosz commanded a Stiletto in the same task force as Lieutenant Samuels during the Federation War. He is to the Stiletto what Gloria Samuels is to the Reaper. We included him because if anyone has a shot at bringing her down, it’s him.” “And how are you going to do that?” Glenn Maxwell asked the captain. “I’ve been looking over the data while all of you have been flapping your gums and pissing all over each other,” the captain said looking at his tablet, “and one thing is crystal clear.” “And that is?” Glenn sneered. “She has better intel than we do.” “What?” “Her targets weren’t random. For example her first target, Depot 23, a small warehouse and refueling center, right?” He patched into the rooms main holographic display. “Wrong,” he said as scans of the aftermath were displayed. “That asteroid was hollow and loaded down with all sorts of shit...” A table of elements started to appear as well as analysis of what few fragments remained. “Including plutonium and other things that clearly indicate more than one nuclear weapon. That old ‘refinery’?” Another image appeared. “Loaded down with isotopes indicative of advanced projectiles and a lot of what was probably living organic material. The debris field is a fucking cloud of CHNOPS. Unless Patricia was farming cattle on the sly, hundreds of people were in there when it blew.” “Jesus,” Glenn muttered. “The rest of the stationary targets are the same. Nothing in the smudges left matches what Red Phoenix says was there.” “He looked at the group.” “Looks like Samuels went after those stockpiles Wintersmith wrote about. Hard to say for sure, of course, but what I can say for sure that she knew exactly what she was going after. And, as long as she knows what she is going after and we don’t, we will never catch her. The only thing can be done is for Patricia Hu to tell us, exactly, where her ‘special installations’ are and which ships would be of interest to Samuels. If we know what Samuels does, then we can cover those assets with our fleet.” He looked over at Glenn Maxwell, and several others, with a wicked predatory smile. “Patricia Hu can either deal with us, or she can deal with her.” *** As the meeting wound down and everyone was gathering their tablets and other materials the Prime Minister rose. “General Litton,” she said in a stern voice. “A moment of your time.” “Oooh! Getting held after class!” Admiral Pierce said elbowing her. “You can remain as well.” He looked crestfallen. After everyone else had left Kara Litton smiled at the Prime Minister. “Did I spread it on too thick?” “No,” Augustine smiled. “It was perfect. So, did you get it?” “I got what you need right here, baby,” Kara said as she unzipped her uniform trousers… and pulled out a data cable with a crystal attached. “You might want to use gloves,” Kara laughed as she removed the crystal and tossed it to the Prime Minister who reluctantly caught it. “Gross,” the Prime Minister laughed as she pocketed the crystal. “I got them all,” Kara Litton grinned as she rammed her fist into her metal leg. “Now what, boss?” Admiral Pierce asked. “Now we run this past our people, find out who has the taint and who to add to the list,” the Prime Minister said, her grandmotherly visage subtly shifting into something far more sinister. “We are only going to get one shot at this.” “My people are ready,” General Litton said calmly, “Just say the word and the knives fall.” “So,” Admiral Pierce asked, “what are we really going to do about Samuels?” “Once a dog has tasted human flesh, there is only one thing you can do,” the Prime Minister said calmly, “Kill her.” “Yes, ma’am. I’ll unleash the ‘hounds’,” Admiral Pierce replied. “Sorry, Pierce,” the Prime Minister said. “Are you?” *** Admiral Pierce returned to his office and slumped into his chair with a sigh. This sucked. Lieutenant Samuels literally saved the day, did what nobody else could (or would) do. And what was her reward? Death. That is, if they could get her. He smiled. That was a big if. Then he frowned. He knew the Prime Minister pretty well. There was something she wasn’t telling him, likely the real reason she wanted Samuels dead. It didn’t add up. She was on their side. They should be feeding her intel, not setting loose the hounds. He picked up his phone. “Captain Soto, could you please come by my office. There is something I need to discuss with you, privately.” *** Admiral Saysangkhi was going over the scans from the Barnard's Star attacks. Bartosz, that asshole, made her look like a chump in front of the Prime Minister and everyone else. She wasn’t going to get caught napping again! Her desktop “pinged” and she looked at the screen and squealed with delight. She rapidly started typing. Moments later a Careel in an Imperial Naval uniform appeared on her screen. “Admiral!” the Imperial Lieutenant Commander exclaimed in surprise. “You have reached the Nova-Rutter-Rampant! How may I help you, ma’am?” “Commander,” Admiral Saysangkhi said cheerfully. “Put me through to Captain Belxania!” “I shall inform Dame Belxania immediately! One moment please, Admiral!” Moments later an exceptionally fluffy careel in a comically ornate uniform appeared. “Dame Belxania!” Admiral Saysangkhi said jumping up and then bowing in Imperial fashion. “Admiral SangSang!” the careel said as they rigidly snapped to attention and saluted. They both giggled. “It’s great to see you again!” Admiral Saysangkhi said after they both stopped laughing at each other. “Congrats on the knighthood!” “Thanks!” the careel said. “It was the Battle of Vgyyx that did it.” “That clusterfuck?” The careel giggled. “Yeah,” she said with a laugh, “Creators! What is that perfect Terran phrase? Shit-show! Yes! That shit-show!” “I thought you were out of your mind, charging the line in a fucking troop transport!” “Saved your cute little ass, didn’t it?” “Only because the bug ran because they thought you were a dreadnought!” They both laughed again. “So what brings you to Sol?” The careel giggled. “You aren’t going to believe this one...” *** Craxina danced from crisis to crisis hugging workers and kissing contractors with a happy little giggle. It was infectious. The whole parking lot was just buzzing with excitement. “What’s gotten into her?” a scaled quadraped asked. “A dick, what else?” Littlefoot snickered. “She has a date later too!” “Like for free?” the scaly pony-thing asked in surprise. “Apparently,” Littlefoot laughed. “Well good for her!” the pony-thing laughed. “And for us. She was turning into a bitch!” Craxina swooshed in, jumping on the pony-thing’s back and hugging her. “I heard that!” she giggled and looked up. “No! Not there!” Craxina shouted as she jumped off of the pony and scampered off. “There!” Craxina stopped mid scamper as a blue grav-hatchback landed. All the happy drained away and she scrunched her face up in a serious little growly-face. The hatchback opened and a Kalent bot clambered out. “Baxlon,” she said frostily as she approached. “I didn’t call you. I’m not paying!” “And I’m not charging,” he said as he walked up. “Your phone is dead.” “Is it?” she said in confusion as she pulled it out. “I just charged it last week!” “Well change the battery then!” he said. “You missed an important call. Ploxni is awake!” “She is?!?!” Craxina squealed, throwing herself upon the bot. “Yep, came to four hours ago,” Baxlon replied. “And they say while it may take awhile she will likely recover with only minor issues, if any… And she said yes by the way. She and Dave are officially engaged.” “Woo!” Craxina screeched. “Guys! Ploxni and Dave are engaged!!! Baxlon, turn on your speaker thingy!” “(sigh)… fine… ‘click’” “PLOXNI IS AWAKE!!!” echoed across the neighborhood. “AND SHE AND DAVE ARE ENGAGED!!! THEY ARE GETTING MARRIED!!!” Cheers broke out across the parking lot (and the neighborhood). “And I finished all the bullshit so you guys can operate as an independent whorery,” Baxlon said with a little bubble. “Oh, thanks,” Craxina said, “… and how much do I owe you for that?” she added scrunching her eyes closed as she braced herself. “(sigh) Do you PROMISE not to call me at two in the fucking morning when it isn’t an emergency and I mean a REAL one?” Craxina lit up like Christmas! “YES! Yes, yes yes yes yes yes ye-” “I get the message,” Baxlon laughed cutting her off. “We will continue the deal that Sheloran and I made at least until things settle down. We can look at things once we get the insurance payoff and you back into a real building instead of this, what do they call it?” “A circus!” Craxina exclaimed as she climbed up on his back. “Do-do do de doot de doot duu doo doo!” “Get off!” Baxlon laughed. “...awooo… awooo...” Craxina’s ears shot up. “Awoo?” she replied. “Awoooo!…. Awoooo!” came echoing down the street. “Awooo!” Craxina howled, perched on top of Baxlon as if he was a strenuously objecting mountain peak, “Awoooooooo!” “Awoooooo! AWOOOOOO!” The howling got louder as Craxina started jumping up and down on top of Baxlon who was unsuccessfully trying to throw her off. Two exotic looking transports pulled into view, packed solid with howling, baying careel! “Craxina!” came an excited howl as one of them lept from a still moving vehicle! “Grwwlf!” Craxina squealed as she was knocked off of Baxlon’s back and tackled to the ground in a joyous pile. Baxlon just stood there in complete shock as a tidal wave of fur, ears, and tails belched forth and covered both Craxina and her brother in a pile of yips and “awoo’s”. “What the fuck?” he eventually bubbled. *** Bryce smiled as a kalesh waitress set down his coffee. “Thank you!” he said brightly. The kalesha beamed back at him. She couldn’t help it. The way he sat so straight and the way he held himself… And that scrunched mouth! So cute! It was almost as if he was a… Christ she needed to get a boyfriend. Even humans were starting to look good! “E-enjoy your coffee, sir,” she said before rushing way, blushing. He sipped the coffee, savoring it. This was the good stuff. It wasn’t that his usual fare was bad… This was just better. He pulled out his communicator. A logo appeared on the screen. “Bailey Pharma,” a synthetic voice answered. “You are three mintues late for your check-in. I am required to file an incident report as per-” “Hi Tart,” he said as he nibbled a biscuit. “I apologize for interrupting but I would prefer the report of your report submitted to my inbox using form 114-15K.” Tartarus made a happy little noise.
2020.09.20 05:44 sirmichaelhuntBuilding a Twitch Channel! Need a PC for Produced Streaming and Gaming - thanks in advance for your thoughts !
What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
I want to stream mainly video interviews and panels, so the PC needs to handle multiple video and audio inputs (from me, from a web browser, from guests over Zoom/Discord) all corralled through OBS.
Am planning stream gameplay as well (CoD, LoL, Fall Guys, Last of Us 2 when it comes, Cyberpunk too and don't care about max settings). I have an old Xbox One and PS4 that I'd love to send out to pasture. Laptop I had when working for Twitch Long story short, I wrote and performed for Twitch's first scripted show 2 Joysticks and a Couch, hosted by T-Pain! Season 1 is over and I had to return the gear :( I produce music (Logic Pro), do light graphic design (GIMP), and edit video (iMovie (I'm cheap when I can be)). I do these on my Macbook Pro - I assume a computer that could stream/game like above would handle these other jobs just fine.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
1500 and would love to have it closer to 1200 (do not have a monitor or mouse)
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
Immediately due to potential job opportunities and sense of creative urgency.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
Brooklyn, NY. Could bike to the Microcenter in Brooklyn and take a Lyft home.
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
I have a bunch of keyboards - best is Keychron K8. Have a Sennheiser headset too.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
Not planning on it - but will take advice regarding
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Editing can scoop up a lot of storage, but I've got good habits with clearing caches to external drives. So, no!
What type of network connectivity do you need? (Wired and/or WiFi) If WiFi is needed and you would like to find the fastest match for your wireless router, please list any specifics.
I recognize the value of a wired connection and will prioritize it and get long ethernet cord.
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Minimalist and modern in presentation. White. No LED's or windows unless very tasteful. Would prefer it on the smaller end - I like NZXT's H610 white case.
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
Need windows - no preference.
Extra info or particulars:
I share an office with my partner. I'd love if she could use the desktop as well and run Mac OS through Bootcamp - or, could easily plug her Macbook into the monitor and use it as a second display. Hoping for a shareable battle station. Also, I recognize how difficult it is to grow an audience on Twitch. My priority is providing myself with the tools to turn an idea into something shareable, into a produced piece of accessible joy. Path to upgrading is not massively important. If this PC can last me 2-3 years and prove it's worth, I look forward to building a better one after that with some clarity in what kind of different pieces I would want. I so appreciate the help!
2020.09.20 05:40 ftso_einLetter from Town Manager Stephen Crane regarding the data breach of November 2019
Edit: Title should say October 2019 From: Stephen Crane <[[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])> Date: September 18, 2020 at 2:27:35 PM EDT Subject:Follow up on notice regarding possible data breach I write to follow up on the message below regarding the possible data breach that occurred last fall. You may receive a letter from me with important information about the Town’s response and credit monitoring. This is a real letter that is the result of almost one year’s investigation and data analysis. As the letter notes, it is still unknown whether the loss of the data has resulted in any cases of identity theft. If you have any questions, please call the phone number in the letter. Due to the volume of letters that went to employees, retirees, and their dependents, a third party is assisting the Town in managing communications. I apologize if this letter caught you off guard. Thanks. Original letter from last year: From: Stephen Crane Sent: Thursday, November 14, 2019 6:31 PM Subject: Important notice regarding possible data breach Dear fellow Town employees: The Town of Concord takes seriously its responsibility to protect and manage the information entrusted to us. As part of that responsibility, I wanted to let you know about an incident that recently occurred. On October 17, 108 computer hard drives that were removed from Town computers as part of a routine replacement program over the past two years were scheduled to be destroyed during the annual Swap Off/Drop Off event at Concord Public Works on Keyes Road. Unfortunately, the drives were improperly removed from the CPW facility; Town staff unsuccessfully searched for the drives onsite and then reported the incident to the Concord Police Department. Since that day, there have been active criminal and administrative investigations into the incident that have required confidentiality about this matter. We have engaged outside experts who specialize in computer data analysis to work with Town staff to understand what types of information may have been stored on the drives. This analysis continues and, at this time, we are unable to accurately define the full extent of data that may be at risk. However, it appears that much of the information stored on the drives relates to current and former Town employees. Out of an abundance of caution, the Town is providing this notification to the community in advance of the conclusion of the investigations in the interest of transparency and to give employees and residents the opportunity to follow best practices for monitoring personal information. Once the investigations are complete, the Town will issue formal notifications to those who may have been impacted by this incident and offer any appropriate personal protections in accordance with both State and Federal law. Employees and citizens who have provided personal information to the Town may be impacted and should closely review their bank and credit card statements. If you see anything suspicious, please report this immediately to your financial institution and the Detective Bureau of the Concord Police Department at (978) 318-3400. You may want to consider monitoring your accounts, placing a security freeze on your credit report and placing fraud alerts with the three credit bureaus. Please visit www.ftc.gov/idtheft for more information as well. In closing, I want to express the Town’s sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause residents and employees. Town departments are doing everything possible to identify those who have been impacted personally and to determine what processes need to be improved to better protect Town property. Sincerely, Stephen CraneTown Manager (978) 318-3000

Describe your problem. List any error messages and symptoms. Be descriptive. Hey guys, I am officially beside myself. I've just recently upgraded my super old pc to a somewhat up to date pc. I've switched out EVERYTHING except the PSU, Case, and monitor. Well, I upgraded from a 770 which played games but only on low settings. After the switch over to the 1060 6gb I can still only play games on the lowest setting...and I only get 40 fps MAX(Destiny 2). I've tried other games, namely Dragons Dogma and I can't even over 30fps in that game on LOW settings. List anything you've done in attempt to diagnose or fix the problem. I've updated the GPU drivers, ran DDU, put the games on a different ssd, reapplied thermal paste, checked the temps and usage( CPU averages 100% when gaming and CPU Temps average 47C even while at 100%. GPU averages 20% while gaming about 44C.) Graphic card is in the PCI x16 slot. I also ran the Heaven benchmark 4.0 on ultra and FPS that i've never seen in any game Provide any additional details you wish below. Please help. I'm at a total lost right now. I've been googling this problem and trying to resolve it for weeks.

Appearance and Character
The Lord of The Crag is a tall-standing, wide-shouldered, intimidating man. His kept hair and enviable posture matched with his brilliant sense of fashion make Reynald appear elitist, and hard to approach, though the former may be true in some sense, the latter is quite the obvious. Reynald is surprisingly charismatic, and his life at war has taught him to appreciate soldiers, noble or not.
At the time of Reynald's birth, House Westerling had been on quite an upswing. With peace bringing prosperity to the realm, as well as a handsome dowry his father Rollam had secured with House Redwyne, rebuilding of The Crag had begun, and it appeared as though House Westerling could rise again to the heights it had before. Reynald proved himself as an intelligent child, showing immense understanding for warfare at an early age, allowing him to blossom into the commander he is today. Reynald also grew to become a skilled and charismatic negotiator, allowing him to secure a prestigious marriage into House Baelish. After securing an even larger dowry than his father had, it appeared House Westerling had truly risen from its dark age into a new prosperous era, but soon the War of White and Gold would begin, and Reynald would be thrust into the Westerlands frontline. Only two moons before the Westerlands joined House Tyrell of Highgarden in rebellion, Lord Rollam Westerling passed, leaving The Crag to his sole son and heir, Reynald. Reynald opted to join Lord Crakehall's host, and accompanied him in the Battle of the Red Lake, Reynald's first true engagement. Following the death of Lyonel Tyrell and the end of the War of White and Gold, Reynald joined the Westermen fleet in their attempted invasion of the Iron Isles. Reynald led the small Westerling fleet alongside the Lannister sailors, though they were met with staunch defense, forcing them to retreat. It was Reynald's first defeat. Following the disastrous invasion, Reynald returned home to nurse his newborn children, Gawen, Reynald 'the Younger,' and Cersei. Two years later, Gerald would be born, and a year following that Rollam would be born. Ten years later, the Ironborn ships would once again harbour on the Westermen's shores, and Reynald was one of the first to volunteer to rid the West of the scum. He mobilized his forces but was unable to reach Fair Isle before the Ironborn blockade was in place. Following the Ironborn's attack on Kayce, Reynald joined Lord Kenning's host, and aided him in his victory, driving the Ironborn off the mainland. Before Reynald could lead a retaking of Fair Isle, however, the King intervened, forcing the Ironborn and the Westermen to stand down. With the Westerlands economy shrinking after several wars, Reynald predicted another downfall for House Westerling, and the ambitious Lord would not allow it. He planned out the lives of his children, "Gawen Westerling, the Greatest Knight," "Reynald the Younger, Kingsguard," "Cersei Westerling, wife of a King," "Gerald Westerling, the Greatest General," and "Rollam Westerling, High Septon." Though those dreams seem impossible, Reynald set out to achieve them. Reynald was far from a great parent, its to even say he was a good one. He neglected his daughter and his last son Rollam, leaving Cersei to be educated by Jynessa (his wife), and sending Rollam to study at a Sept. His first three son's, however, garnered all of his attention. He sent both Gawen and Reynald out on dangerous adventures to prove their honour, most of the time they failed or were gravely injured, and with immense pressure from their father, the two elder brothers became depressed. Gerald, however, was taken closely under Lord Reynald's wing, being educated by Reynald who strictly set to teaching the ways of war. It left Gerald lacking in many other trades, but he did grow into a skilled commander nonetheless. As Lord Reynald's children grew older, he realized that most of them had missed the mark by far. Both Gawen and Reynald were poor fighters and knights and Cersei was still unmarried. Though Lord Reynald saw a chance for his son's to redeem themselves, as the Dragon Invaded. Reynald sent his first two son's ahead of the main Lannister army, letting them instead join up with the Reach host. Before they left however, he spoke to them. "You either come back with the Dragon's head, or you come back as ash." Those were his final words to his eldest son, who was killed by men of the Golden Company before he had even seen the mighty dragon. Reynald, however, was gravely wounded, and sent home. Lord Reynald was heartbroken and distraught at the death of his firstborn son, and he took his anger out on new, crippled, heir. The disgraced young Reynald attempted to take his own life multiple times during his stay at The Crag, whilst his father Lord Reynald prepared for war in the West. Soon, however, Ironborn raiders for the third time in his life, landed on Westermen shores. Fearing a raiding party landing in the poorly defended Crag, Lord Reynald relocated him and his family to Lannisport along with the Westerling fleet, both to utilize the port's strong defenses as well as meet with the other Westerlords and prepare for the Ironborn. Misfortune, however, struck again as the Dragon had already captured Lannisport, thus leaving the Westerling fleet at the mercy of the Ironborn. The Iron fleet managed to kill many of Lord Reynard's close friends and companions during the battle, not only that, however, they also killed Reynard the Younger, Cersei, and Lord Reynard's youngest child, Rollam. For the last two years, Lord Reynald and his now only surviving child grieved, but now, they must continue with their ambitions.
The young Westerling heir may sit in the shadow of his far larger farther, but Gerald too can be an intimidating leader. He inherited his father's wits, and he put them to good use. Gerald was never a fighter, he lacked the physical prowess of his father and his elder brothers, but he proved himself as his father's favourite son.
Gerald was born to Reynald Westerling and Jynessa Baelish only two years after the West was humiliated by the Ironborn at sea. He was born during Reynald's peak of ambition for his children, and from an early age, Lord Reynald took his son under his wing and taught him everything he knew. Gerald was seven when the Ironborn invaded, Reynald had wanted to take his son's along with him on campaign, though many of his advisors and relatives were staunchly against it. Instead, after the war ended, Reynald gifted Gerald many of the war plans, things Gerald spent many years studying. When the Dragon invaded, Gerald was kept home initially by his father, who had sent his two brother's out to certain doom. Gerald aided Reynald in preparing for an inevitable war in the West, but when the time came and the Dragon reached the Westerlands, Reynald made the decision to transport his family, including Gerald, to Lannisport. Gerald was there when the Westerling was caught by the Ironborn raiders, his father had taken full command, and Gerald was rendered useless. He and his father managed to escape, but his two living brother's and sister perished, it was the first time Gerald had seen combat, and the last time he'd look at an Ironborn the same.
