2021.10.20 17:03 helveon Should I return my Chromebook and get a Windows 11 laptop?
Casual user here. I recently picked up an Acer Spin 311 and I love how compact and light it is. I do have an appreciation for chromeos’ simplicity and security, but I can’t stand that it’s riddled with the dumbest bugs and shortcomings. The Android apps are so hit and miss, and now the recent update has made my apps unresponsive.
On top of that, there’s this annoying issue with the screen gamma being increased when using a mouse on apps like YouTube, Reddit and Instagram. Also, why is there still no stable dark mode in 2021? There’s other issues too, but I’m sure you’ve heard them all based off the posts on this sub. It seems like Google is STILL primarily focused on giving a great web experience and nothing else.
A part of me wants to stick around and see these problems be resolved but another part thinks I should just swap this Chromebook for a compact, 2-1 Windows 11 laptop (like the Acer Spin 3). I know Windows has its own problems, but 11 seems to have greatly improved the OS based on what I’ve read. What do you guys think?

2021.10.20 17:03 terpsichorevictoria Put H4 and 1st line of P on the same horizontal line, but the 2nd line of P should be vertically aligned with the 1st line of P?
I'm trying to create a CSS style sheet for a stage play wherein the Character (H4) appears on the same horizontal line as the 1st line of the Dialogue (paragraph). At the same time, I want it so that when the Dialogue wraps, the beginning of the 2nd line of the Dialogue will be vertically aligned with the beginning of the 1st line of the Dialogue, like this.
I've managed to put the Character and the 1st line of Dialogue on the same horizontal line using
display: inline for both and set
margin-left: 30pxfor the Dialogue so as to create a good amount of horizontal space between the Character and the Dialogue. So that's great. Problem is, the 2nd line of the Dialogue goes way to the left and gets vertically aligned with the Character instead of with the 1st line of the Dialogue, as you'll see in my jsfiddle.
Now I tried deleting
display: inline for both and setting the Dialogue to say,
margin-left: 150px which fixes the problem -- the 2nd line of my Dialogue is now vertically aligned with the 1st line of my Dialogue. But then the 1st line of my Dialogue is no longer horizontally aligned with my Character.
It seems I can only either:

2021.10.20 17:02 KatheyBoss Cryptocurrency Due Diligence: The Three Core Principles of Fundamental Altcoin Analysis
| TL;DR: Savvy investors are building up their altcoin portfolios in preparation for an explosive altcoin season. To take advantage, you've got to have a framework to research promising projects.|
Professional crypto researchers like Crypto Pragmatist and Blocmates understand three fundamental things a cryptocurrency before investing in it: the value proposition, the supply and demand, and the stakeholders behind it.
The Universal Law of Crypto
People who simply knew of and understood crypto in its early days have now been rewarded with hundreds of billions of dollars of wealth. And while crypto price action has been volatile, the industry has been consistent in two things since its inception:
If knowledge inefficiency allows us to create outsized returns for our portfolio, then the way to create reliable alpha (excess ROI) is to set up a repeatable process where we can research and understand cryptocurrencies. Fundamental analysis is difficult, but it does not require special education, exclusive information, or super-genius level brains.
In today's market conditions, any halfway-clever investor can perform research that will allow them to generate better-than-average returns on their cryptocurrency portfolios.In my time as as an Altcoin Research Analyst, I've established a simple fundamental framework I go through to perform basic prospecting on all of the cryptocurrencies I research.
While this framework isn't comprehensive, it is a starting point that will give you a solid foundation for better understanding cryptocurrencies, and thus, make better investing decisions. I've broken it down into three rules: three questions to which you must have answers.
If you have a strong grasp on how these three rules apply to the altcoin you're researching, you are well on your way to making a good, informed investing decision for the given cryptocurrency.
The single most important thing to understand in a cryptocurrency is how it provides value for its users. This can often be distilled down to just a few words or sentences, but it sometimes can be tricky to wrap your head around.
We'll take a look at a few of the biggest cryptos for inspiration:
If you couldn't explain to your Mom/Dad/Relative how this might add value to the world, it's a signal you need do more research and reading. White papers, the foundational documents of cryptos, are pretty helpful in this respect, (look up "target cryptocurrency" + white paper to find it) although they can be quite dense. Project roadmaps, often hosted on the crypto's official website are helpful as well.
Explore your curiosity and dive into what you don't understand. This is not the time to be shy or embarrassed about what you don't get, you're going to be putting your hard-earned money on the line: Twitter, Reddit, and Discord are all your friends.
Understanding how a crypto creates value allows you to:
It’s not enough that a cryptocurrency simply adds value to the world: it must have incentives built in to facilitate increasing demand that outpaces supply.
Bitcoin and Ethereum are both successful examples of cryptocurrencies that have created markets where demand eclipses supply, which causes price to appreciate. Bitcoin has accomplished the feat by creating a solid monetary policy base (slowly decreasing mining rewards and a capped supply).
Ethereum has started to burn Eth tokens since the EIP-1559 hard fork was activated, creating a deflationary supply while network activity continues to increase, driving demand. Before the EIP-1559, Eth's supply still outpaced demand thanks to high network activity across DeFi platforms, NFT minting, peer-to-peer transactions, and other tokens that existed on the network.
Exchange token FTX uses network proceeds to buy back and burn tokens, creating deflationary pressure that in theory causes the price to rise.
There are plenty examples of misaligned supply/demand pressures as well. Yield Farm/DeFi platform Iron Finance had a ‘bank run’ style collapse on on June 16th, 2021. The cause of the collapse? Poor management of supply and demand. Too much of the native farm token (TITAN) flooded the market as TITAN holders were not sufficiently incentivized to hold.
Since it was used as collateral for the yield farms, the entire ecosystem fell apart. To avoid a fate like that of Iron Finance investors, make sure you understand exactly why investors may choose to buy, hold, and sell a token.
White Papers are one way to understand these dynamics, while simply taking part in the ecosystem helps you get an intimate understanding of the incentives that affect market participants.
You can also take a look at CoinGecko and CoinMarketCap to see how much of a given coin has been mined (and thus how much it will be diluted). Total Value Locked (TVL) shows you how many dollars of a given asset is secured inside of a protocol, hypothetically showing you how much that protocol might generate in revenue and how confident players are in the protocol's permanence.
Why is Ethereum such a strong investment? It’s constantly being criticized for its slow transactions, its high fees, and it’s develop first/fix later, it’s managed to attract thousands of the most talented developers, marketers, artists, and community builders in the world. Nonetheless, it's the king of altcoins.
Every individual working on Ethereum or on any project around Ethereum is creating value for Ethereum holders. Lending platforms like AAVE, NFT platforms like OpenSea, and Level Two (L2) ecosystems like $MATIC are all built on top of Ethereum. People building on Ethereum creates network effects that make other people want to build their platforms on Ethereum, which brings more smart, talented people ad infitum. The lesson? Work to understand who is working on a platform and why they are there.
Does the core team have a strong background in blockchain tech? Can you watch interviews or check their social media to get a feel for them? Are they transparent and accessible or mysterious and elusive? All of these can help us get a better feel for the project.
We also must understand the stakeholders’ incentives. Some projects (Decentraland is one that comes to mind) have gotten criticism recently, as vesting has ended and now the founders now have access to all of the tokens that were once locked up. Because the founders won’t be rewarded with any meaningful quantity of new tokens, and the project’s market cap is around $1 billion, there’s not as much incentive for the founders to be working hard on development.
Finally, we should look at whale wallets: who are the biggest holders? Why do they hold so much of the currency? Is their stake large enough to manipulate the supply?
Dogecoin gets a lot of this criticism: thanks to the miracle of public ledgers, we can see how much of a given currency the biggest whales own. The top 11 Dogecoin whales own around 47% of the total supply, meaning they could easily influence the price of the currency should they choose. The top Ethereum wallet, in comparison, owns a mere 1.65% of the total Ethereum supply. It’s easy to understand which coin is less likely to be manipulated.
Team info can be found by poking around Twitter and the team pages of official project sites. Info on incentives is often found on Medium, while whale wallet data can be found by poking around on blockchain explorers and on-chain analytics platforms.
This framework is not a silver bullet, but it is a simple, replicable process for understanding cryptocurrencies that can be applied at any point in a market cycle to drastically decrease your probability of picking duds while simultaneously increasing your probability of picking the rare 1000x investment when it does come along.

2021.10.20 17:02 arashi3 Recommend a bag for the office
I'm in need of a new bag for my job at the office. I've skated by so far in more causal offices with a draw bag for most of my stuff since I was usually provided with a laptop and laptop bag. However, I'll be going back to the office for my new position soon and need something office appropriate that can store a laptop (13"), charger, notebook etc.
I've really liked the look of the Stuart and Lau Cary Briefcase (Slim) but I've heard the quality has recently dropped and for that price, I can't afford something of lesser quality.
I've also seen the Filson Ripstop Nylon Compact Briefcase and liked the overall look of the bag, just not sure if the quality is as good as their leather offerings (I know the nylon won't last as long as the leather, I'm talking comparatively). I've also heard they increased prices recently so the price to quality ratio isn't quite there anymore.
What can you recommend that would tic all the boxes for a modern bag for the office that will last a long time? My budget is around $200 CAD, but if there's something that's a little more expensive but worth it, I'll definitely consider it.

2021.10.20 17:02 0rnatia101 botched tragus piercing?
| Hello all! Sorry if the formatting is bad - it's my first post! and also sorry for the ugly AF photo.|
So the reason I'm posting is because I would like your honest opinion & possibly advice on my current tragus shituation.
I got my tragus pierced last Thursday at a tattoo & piercing shop that I have been to about four or five times in the past. I've always felt it was a reputable studio and was pleased with the service. However, this experience has been traumatic and frankly awful.
I chose my bar (a plain titanium silver bar) and was taken to get the piercing done. It was really quick and not painful - I was given care instructions, which a followed to the letter. the first 24 hours were fine, but the next evening my ear was getting uncomfortable. I could feel my tragus swelling and feeling hot. I took an ibuprofen and went to bed. The next morning, my ear was even more painful and I had a distinct pain in my jaw. I was googling like mad to see if this was "normal" for a new tragus piercing and many sources said yes, but it didn't feel right to me. I continued with my cleaning routine and left it to heal. The pain was getting worse, and my tragus became more swollen to the point that yesterday evening I noticed that I couldn't feel the 'back' of my earring anymore.
I realised that it must have embedded; perhaps the bar was too short? and I had no alternative but to remove the piercing. Well... turns out that was rather a horrible ordeal because I pulled out the bar from front to back - no doubt causing trauma to my piercing. I was horrified to see that the bar did not have a typical flat backing - instead it had a tiny diamond jewel.
I contacted the studio immediately on facebook and told them what happened and that I thought the wrong type of jewelry was used. They apologised a bit, the owner of the studio even said "yes looking from the pictures I agree with you" (i have attached a photo of the bar they used, alongside a hideous photo of my ear skin growing over the tragus piercing from the back.
Anyway, I went to the shop this evening, and the piercer didn't apologise. Not even once. She was adamant that it was the correct type of jewelry. Now, this is 100% wrong - and I wonder if you agree, for two reasons.
1) I did not pay or choose a diamond jewel bar
2) the diamond side was inside my ear, and therefore far too small to be used. It was basically asking to get embedded at this point!
The staff offered to put in a new bar, but I took it home and said I would do it myself as I don't trust them. They condescendingly implied I wouldn't be able to get it in (when I managed to put in a temporary ring last night).
I did receive a full refund, but frankly the fact they didn't even acknowledge any wrong doing is upsetting to me. I've had many piercings before (body and ears) and had no issues with healing them.
TLDR: piercer used wrong bar and didn't apologise for fudging up my tragus piercing.
