Long shot - but I’m missing my Mizuno MP 33 8 iron. Do you have one I can buy?

Long shot - but I’m missing my Mizuno MP 33 8 iron. Do you have one I can buy?
Long story short, my younger son took my clubs for summer golf camp last year and came home sans one 8 iron. At the time I was using some Ping S56 irons and these Mizunos were my loaners so I just found a decent cobra 8 iron at a pawn shop to fill the gap.
When my older son made the high school golf team we did a big switcheroo. I have since put his irons as the loaner set (older titleist DCI), I switched back to the Mizunos, and he is now on my Pings to have a more forgiving club.
I can’t afford 2 new sets of irons so I’ll play the Mizunos for a couple years so I can upgrade the boy as needed and I’ll save my pennies and get some irons for myself at some point.
Which brings me to the favor I need. Holy crap I hate that cobra 8 iron. I hate it with a passion. I really badly need an MP 33 8 iron to replace it. Problem is I can only find 2 or 3 on eBay and they are all in the UK.
I’m really hoping maybe someone has an MP 33 8 iron in their grab bag they would SELL me. I’d even take a head only. Beat up is fine, rust is cool too lol, I just need to ditch this stupid cobra.
Thanks!

2023.06.02 16:23 WishIWasOnACatamaran If you are looking for a roommate towards the end of July in Mission/Castro/Dolores/Panhandle-ish area and your budget is a $2000-$2500, hit up my DMs with a little bio

About me:
26M, work in South Bay a few days a week (no I don’t want to rent your South Bay spot unless it is the sweetest deal/spot of the year), have a car (so would like to find a spot that has a garage option), and I garden a lot so am ideally also looking for a patio and/or a rooftop/yard situation as well.
I’ve lived all over the states so I’m sure there’s something you and I relate on. I spend a lot of my free time with my friend group (typically going to shows), but am in the middle of resparking a fitness/wellness routine so have begun dedicating more time there. I listen to all music except country (with the exception of high quality bluegrass), but am mostly hip-hop or electronic anymore, and for live shows I’m typically at electronic. I do subscribe to the work hard play hard bs, but don’t mind whatever your lifestyle is as long as there is no crossover.
I have been overspending on my own apartment ($3200) and would like to find somebody to room with in a move to SF to lower that cost. As long as I spend less than I am now, it is a win, and if I find some good people to live with it’s even better.
From what I am seeing now I can get a decent place with 1 other person, but if I get 2 other renters we could really land a cool spot.

2023.06.02 16:02 Diligent_Pen_281 A poetic prophesy

If you recognize this poem, don’t read past it.
Down in The Land, in the bay of the Thunder, A tribe from the depths, their peace torn asunder. An old man of heaven, who yet casts the line, Found deep ‘neath the waves, a tree smothered in brine.
Enter in through, with the key from The Mask, The doorman lies leery, sealed tight in the cask. Breathing is hard, where water’s a grave, Yet gifts from the past, from gasping can save.
Once underground, with the sun bright on both sides, Find you The Widow, with tears in her eyes. Give then my word, which I spoke long ago, She’ll send you away, to the land of the snow.
A man of metal and stone, whose heart melts as glass, Has given the way, by breathing his last. Through the shadows and smoke, from the man of them both, Fight your way through, but beware ye the growth.
The puzzle is easy, when know you the key, The key is my friend, the one you set free. In vaulted cathedral with roof deep below, The sovereigns lie buried, with eyes yet aglow.
Turn, turn, Turner again, One for the sinner, two for the sin. If you have heeded, and gaze cast is straight, Follow his vision to find you the gate.
A Coils, a Kiss had no will of their own, But cast free from the shackles, they fled with dark, evil stone. Now these stones that they carry, like deep seated mistrust, Are now themselves keys to halls coated in dust.
Touch not a goblet, sit not on the throne, Or wake you the ire of beast naught but bone. Yet wake him you must, for beneath is the way, Enter with haste, if you wish see the day.
A path made of gold, swathed all in linen, Fled down at great speed, by gnashing teeth driven. Traverse it yet careful, or find it your last, But when dawn has come, the trouble has passed.
Fear ye The Father, the Herald of Swarms, For guards he the way, with The Brother of Storms. Separate from me, you must defeat or persuade, Or so ends it here, your righteous crusade.
There ‘round the light, your prize binds them true, Yet releasing them now, you cannot undo. The risk, the reward, the chaos set free, The God to combine, the final decree. ————————————————————
I am running a high level (19, will go into epic boons), high fantasy (flying islands and all) campaign for a high number of players(seven). This poem is part prophecy, part road map to aid the heroes in putting back together the shattered pieces of god. It’s a big deal.
Now I do know what most of this means already but I was looking for ideas on what the other bits could be alluding to. Here’s what I have nailed down: * “The bay of the Thunder” refers to a location called Thunderbay Ocean. * “The key from The Mask” is a pendant that a PC carries, it was his father’s, his father was “The Mask. * “Gifts from the past” I intend that whichever item they pull out that I forgot an npc had given them can suddenly help keep from drowning in some way, if it’s entertaining and makes sense. * The entire stanza about the sun on both sides, The Widow, the word, and the snow I have nailed down. * The next stanza is wholly referring to NPCs, the “man of metal and stone” is a warforged general, who will sacrifice himself if he is rehabilitated, or else must be killed. The “man of shadows and smoke” is the Fey Lord of smoke, mist, and shadows, and “the growth” is a remnant from an ancient arch Druid sloth-guy. Ideas about how these last two could have left “barriers” and such would be cool. * The Warforged name is Glaive, in order to get through a door they must insert a Glaive into a slot and turn it. In a long forgotten cathedral, the ancients have been awoken and reanimated, I don’t know who these ancients were, but I know the villain who brought them back. * Next stanza refers to a statue of someone named Turner needing to be rotated. Your guess is as good as mine. * “Coils” refers to a PC (his title was The Constrictor’s Coils) and “Kiss” refers to an NPC (her title was The Kiss of the Cobra King). They then fled their society and have pieces of the body of Merrshaulk, the former god of the yuan-ti who was turned into a massive dark statue that encircled the earth. The statue has broken (because in my world the earth has shattered due to a mad geomancer, causing tectonic plates to rise, creating floating islands and continents) the yuan-ti seek to reconstruct the statue of Merrshaulk to free him from his stone prison. These shards are somehow a key I guess. * Whenever they get through, they need to be careful not to wake something I’m thinking undead tarrasque. But it slumbers on top of the way out so they must wake it. * They flew down a massive ornate tunnel chased by the undead something and other undead from earlier in the dungeon. There are tons of traps, it will be difficult. But at dawn they escape. * The last two paragraphs I kinda got, “The Father” is a PC’s lost dad, diametrically opposed to the players, same as “The Brother” the PC’s brother. They need to get past them to access the final piece. * The final piece is a piece of the shattered god, a chain that binds all the true forms of dragons. Since the event I call “The Great Cataclysm” there have been no dragons, but we know that’s because they have been bound to their humanoid forms. Removing this chain will grant them an immensely powerful piece of god ti use to fix him, but will also allow the dragons to access their true forms once again. There are some twists here, the mounts of The Harbingers of the Apocalypse are dragons. This will release them. And they can choose to release only metallics or chromatics, if they want, but a PC is a chromatic so they know they aren’t all evil…. Either way if they take the chain the Mounts are released.
Okay ideas, feedback, and clarifying questions would be so appreciated!!

2023.06.02 15:46 chop_your_cock_off First trip to Italy - recap report

Just finished my first trip to Italy and what a great experience. Wanted to share my experience here for other first time travelers and some things I would have done differently. The trip was broken up into 3 legs and spread across 12 days - Tuscany (5), Rome (2), and Amalfi (5). I'll include some details of itinerary and travel.
Apologies for a long post, but hopefully someone will get some good info out of this!

To prep for the trip, I used the Duolingo app for about 3 months to try and make sure I knew enough Italian to get by. Of course, the moment my plan touched down all that studying I did flew out of my head and I basically forgot it all! In the end I was able to get by with just greetings, ordering food/drink/cafe and simple hi, how are you type phrases. For reference, my wife did no studying and picked it up right away. Only shock to her was that there was no such thing as iced coffee.
Tuscany
We flew into Milan and rented a car at the airport. Would definitely recommend this because once you are into Tuscany it is hard/expensive to find drivers and Uber is basically non-existent.
Stayed at the Como Castello del Nero hotel. The hotel was beautiful and had everything you could want. Rolling and picturesque hills from every vantage point, a great pool, good fitness facilities and a nice spa. The staff at the hotel were world class as well. The restaurants on property were very nice however quite expensive. We did eat on the property a few times, but I think i preferred my meals off property and in the smallelocal restaurants more. I would have planned more dinners off property if I had to do anything differently here. Favorite meal was at La Capanna del Gallo, a smaller restaurant which was a short drive from our hotel.
For activities we visited a few wineries/vineyards as well as did a bit of hiking. We were a little jet lagged and did spend a bit of time just relaxing and drinking wine by the pool. The winery that absolutely blew me away was the Antinori Vineyard in Bargino . We did the CRU tour which included an in-depth tour of the facilities, tasting of several vintages and then a lunch with wine pairing. Would highly recommend visiting here. One of the mom-and-pop vineyards that we visited and i would also recommend is Il Palagio di Palazzo. Did the CRU tour here as well and was very pleased.

Rome
Used the rental car to travel from Tuscany to Rome, then returned the car near our hotel in Rome.
Stayed at the Baglioni Hotel Regina. Nice enough hotel, but the rooms were a little dated. Technically classified as a 5 star hotel but I probably would have classified it as a 4 star. Still, decent enough stay and staff. Plus for the location as well. We booked this hotel because it was purely in a good location and more of a 'utilitarian' choice - we knew that we weren't going to be spending a lot of time here so the hotel didn't matter all that much.
As we were only in Rome for two days, we really tried to pack in as much as we could. On the day we arrived we spent the afternoon walking around and just taking in the city. We had dinner in the Testaccio neighborhood, which i would highly recommend. We ate at Felice, which was a bit touristy but i think still worth it for some excellent cacio e peppe.
Trevi Fountain - its whatever - cool i guess but absolutely mobbed.
Colosseum - very cool. Did an early morning guided tour which was booked on Viator.
Vatican Museum - Also very cool but a bit long for our taste. Did a 4 hour private/guided tour booked through Context Travel. We were able to get 'behind the ropes' in a lot of places to look at things away from general public which was nice, but its very crowded in the main areas.
If we had to do something different in Rome it would for sure be spacing out activities or just booking a day or two more. All in all, we went to Rome knowing that we would be very busy and very 'touristy' but I think slowing it down a bit would have made this portion of the trip a little nicer. Still, Rome is great and would love to get back.

Amalfi
Took the train from Roma Termini to Naples. Our hotel arranged for a transfer from Naples to the hotel.
Stayed at Borgo Santandrea just outside of Amalfi town. Hands down nicest hotel I have ever even stepped foot inside. Seriously 5 star all the way through with no detail overlooked. One detail I loved is that it smelled amazing in throughout the hotel which actually was a really nice touch. The hotel had an amazing pool and is the only hotel in Amalfi that his its own beach club. The staff were top notch and I think there was a staff-to-guest ratio of like 3:1. The hotel also had a free shuttle that would drop-off/pickup from Amalfi town whenever you needed which was a real life saver in terms of time and money.
For activities we visited Ravello, Amalfi and Positano (sort of) then utilized our hotel's beach club for a few lazy days. Ravello was my favorite of the cities to visit. There were tourists yes, but much fewer than all the other cities. We visited Villa Cimbrone which has a spectacular garden and amazing views. You should go here for a nice cocktail or glass of wine. We went out in Amalfi town for dinner several times and never had a bad meal. We tried to branch off the main square and into some alleyways to find hidden gems, but all in all I would say most of the restaurants were comparable at the $$$ price range on google maps. Finally, we planned to visit Positano but scrapped it at the literal last minute - we rented a boat to take us from our hotel's dock to Positano but as we approached Positano it just appeared overrun by people. Instead we had our boat driver just cruise us around the coast. This ended up being one of my favorite days. The cost was $100/hour so actually pretty reasonable. Beach club at Borgo Santandrea was also a highlight - not crowded at all and the service is great. You can visit the beach club even if you don't stay at the hotel, so I would say its worth it even just for a nice lunch and cocktails. The pizza at the beach club is really good, although a little pricey at roughly 30 euros for a basic pizza.
I don't think I would really change anything about the Amalfi portion of my trip other than trying to extend it!

Just to give everyone an idea on budget, I think we spent roughly $25,000 for two people during the trip of a lifetime.

2023.06.02 14:46 Jurgen_Leitner Perk Ideas

Hello my good fellows,
I think it is fun to create perks, just for fun, for imaginations sake. Forwardly I strew about such pale illuminations so as to encourage your as to encourage your own (dear reader) building of such imaginary perks. Think of it as a sort of creative writing idea. It really would be lovely if more perks were added to the game, and not even as part of killer dlc but just for free. For funs sake
One must wonder, if perhaps even the devs might one day even take a liking to one of the ideas.
I apologize for if this is all very weird. I am, as it currently stands, for the writing of this --- most wondrous of papers --- very, and (really rather indubitably) stoned .
That is to say feel free to reword any of my perks in order to get clearer wording, whilst maintaining the core idea, For your own comprehensions sake.
What follows are some of my own attempts at creating perks.

KILLER PERK:

Hex: Unseen Machinations

Whilst this hex towers upright, glowing vulnerably in darkness this perk is active. Whilst working on a generator survivors are effected by the oblivious status effect. They remain oblivious for 3/4/5 (based on perk level) seconds after leaving the generator.
This would essentially function like fearmonger but inflict oblivious, it would be a hex for balance as I think otherwise it would be too strong.

KILLER PERK:

Hex: Devour Light

Whilst this hex yet stands, the shadows grow thicker, the killer more illusive. When a survivor is rescued from a hook at least 24 meters away, Devour Light gains a token.
1 Token- Your terror radius is reduced by 6/7/8 (based on perk level) meters
2 Tokens- Your Red Stain is hidden
4 Tokens- You become undetectable
I really quite like the mechanic that hex: devour hope has as it requires you to not camp hooks in order to gain more power. Whereas devour hope makes you more lethal over time this perk makes you stealthier. I think it would be quite good on killers like Myers, who would get a lot of use out of it with just one token. Myers needs a little love anyways so I don't think this perk would be too op


KILLER PERK:

Fog-Lurker

The first time each survivor is hooked gain a token up to a maximum of 2/3/4 (based on perk level) tokens. For each token the maps fog slightly/moderately/greatly (based on perk level). Thus each token increases the fog more until eventually the map is shrouded in a dense black fog. Whilst you have at least 2 tokens you are unaffected by fog (meaning for the survivors the map would be coated in a thick fog, but for the killer the map would be quite visible).
I like how the first time hook perks subtly encourage you not to tunnel survivors. I think offerings like murky reagent are quite fun, and fog can add quite a bit of mood and scare factor to the game. This perk gives killers the edge by giving them a visibility disadvantage. How devious! You would probably need to make the fog gradually thicken over 10 seconds or something so its not jarring.

KILLER PERK:

Cycle of Anger

Survivors giving you the slip builds your temper, until you cannot contain your rage in in a fit of bloodlust! Only for your temper to grow once more.
At the start of the match you have 6 tokens, Patience is active, and Rage is inactive.
Patience: Whenever a survivor performs a vault action while in chase you lose 2 tokens.
Once you have 0 tokens Patience deactivates and Rage Activates
Rage: You gain bloodlust 30/40/50% faster. Whenever you gain bloodlust 1, you gain 3 tokens.
Once you have 6 tokens the next time you would gain a token instead Rage deactivates and Growing Temper activates.
this perk would allow you to catch survivors much quicker after getting looped by survivors for awhile. By only tokens when you reach the first level of bloodlust, this perk effectively makes it so that you get faster bloodlust for 2 chases, after someone vaults you in chase a chase 4 times. This perk plays with bloodlust which is a mechanic that not a lot of perks engage with, so it might be too strong numbers-wise I'm not sure. Currently you reach bloodlust level 1/2/3 after 15/25/35 seconds, with this perk at max rank it would make it so you get bloodlust level 1/2/3 after 7.5/12.5/17.5 seconds of chase, or at least that's what I intend it to do.

SURVIVOR PERK:

Moment Of Restraint

When you are crouching you make no-noise, and leave no pools of blood.
When you chased by the killer for at least 2/3/4 (based ---of course--- on perk level) seconds this perk deactivates, and remains deactivated for an additional 25/20/15 (based on perk level) seconds after the chase ends.
This perk is deactivated whilst you are exhausted.
This would give an alternative to Iron Will, that does not run into old iron wills problem of being too useful in chase, and instead is only useful for hiding from a killer that has not yet spotted you. Not leaving pools of blood whilst crouched is a really cool idea I reckon, and I don't think it would be too op since it forces you to be crouched, and thus slow. It could be quite useful paired with urban evasion. eg. you are injured working on a gen, you hear the killers heartbeat., you with your increased crouch speed you crouch behind a nearby rock, the killer does not hear you or see you blood spots so he does not find you.


SURVIVOR PERK:

Show of Skill

You dazzle them not with your bursts of speed, but with the perfection of your play.
After being chased by the killer for 7/6/5 (based on perk level) seconds this perk activates. Whilst this perk is active you break into a skillful chase moving at 101/102/103% movement speed. additionally gain 9/10/11% vault speed, and pallet drop speed.
After you have been out of chase for a cumulative time of 10/15/20 seconds this perk deactivates.
When this perk activates you become exhausted for 90/80/70 seconds.
This perk cannot activate while exhausted (if it has already been activated and you are exhausted the exhaustion does not deactivate the perk)
This perk would be a good exhaustion perk for skillful survivors that think they can loop the killer for 5 gens. Often the extra distance you get from this perk would be pitiful compared to a normal exhaustion perk would grant you. I can imagine it being favored by those who like resilience and the old vault speed builds. It would essentially be an improved vault speed build at the cost being an exhaustion perk. 3% bonus speed might be too much, maybe something like 1% or 2% would be more balanced. For something that lasts the entire chase idk. Regular exhaustion perks tend to give 50% bonus speed for 3 seconds so in order to gain the same amount of bonus distance with this perk the chase would need to last 50 seconds. Idk could be super unbalanced. I'd rather it be too weak than too strong.

SURVIVOR PERK:

Boon: Ward of Protection

A boon that protects against lost progress.
Press and hold the Active Ability button on a Dull or Hex Totem to bless it and create a boon totem. Soft chimes delicately ring out in a radius of 24 meters.
All generators gain this effect if they are within the boon totems radius.
They are blocked whenever the killer comes within 3 meters, and receive 30/40/50% less damage.
This perk lets you protect your gen from regression perks, and blocks the killer from kicking the generator. It might be a little annoying for the killer, but on most maps this would only effect one generator. So honestly, it might be a bit weak.

KILLER PERK:

Hex: Cycle of Torment

Whilst the corresponding hex totem is standing Cycle of Torment is active
If Cycle of Torment is cleansed then both Incessant Pain and Sweet Release are permanently deactivated
At the start of the match You have 9/6/3 tokens, Sweet Release is active, and Incessant Pain is deactivated
Incessant Pain: While active your basic attacks inflict broken, broken lasts until hooked, downed, or the hex is cleansed or cleared by Sweet Release. Whenever a survivor loses a health state you gain 2 token.
Once you have 6 tokens Incessant Pain deactivates, and Sweet Release Activates
Sweet Release: Whenever a survivor is loses a health state lose 3 tokens. Once You have 0 Tokens, all broken survivors lose their broken status, this perk deactivates, and Incessant Pain activates.
This perk would allow you to have at most 3 survivors that are all broken. It might be insanely strong. It is balanced by being a Hex, and having a reset via sweet release.

And Finally, my triumphant final perk for this post

KILLER PERK:

Triumphant Finish

You have a knack for the cinematic, as the game reaches its breaking point, anyone could die at a moments notice, you play your final trump card. Sealing their fate.
When a survivor is rescued from a hook at least 24 meters away, Triumphant Finish gains a token.
When 8 Tokens have been gained Triumphant Finish Activates for the rest of the match.
When Triumphant Finish Activates all windows and pallets are barred to survivors by the entity, all survivors are exposed, and you gain the ability to kill survivors by your own hand.
If a survivor is killed before Triumphant Finish Activates then Triumphant Finish is permanently disabled.
This perk would force you to play extremely fairly, no tunneling, and no camping hooks, as a result its reward is incredibly impressive, instantly closing all loops, breaking all pallets, and effectively resulting in an incredibly quick end for the survivors if they do not quickly escape

Anyway that's all for now, what are your thoughts one these, do you think they would be cool in the game! It's a fun exercise to create imaginary perks, that would hopefully be balanced. I'd imagine it must such a fun job to design and balance perks for behavior. Feel free to design your own perks in the comments or whatever (sorry I'm kinda new to reddit) What are your thoughts on these perks

2023.06.02 11:58 the13thReason [TOTK] is one of the best games I've ever played, but I can't help feeling disappointed

I'm still fairly early on (just finished the Wind Temple), but I'm just feeling slightly underwhelmed now that the shine of a new game has worn off.
Don't get me wrong, I think it's a fantastic game in many respects, but a few things just irk me. The lack of new settlements or significant changes to existing ones is a big one. I was so excited to revisit Hyrule thinking we'd get some cool new towns or large expansions to pre-existing ones, and that hasn't really been the case. I haven't quite gotten around to visiting all the towns quite yet (I'm intrigued to see Goron City), but as far as I know there are no new towns other than Lookout Landing. I know it wouldn't have made much sense to see a sky island town or even an underground one, but it just feels a bit samey to BOTW's Hyrule. This is definitely more on me than the actual game for maybe having somewhat unrealistic expectations, but it's still a bit sad to see a lack of change with the villages and settlements.
Also, the sky islands have been incredibly underwhelming for me so far, especially since the entire marketing campaign was based off them - is this something that becomes more interesting/complex later on? The depths are also slightly disappointing as it just feels like a chore to explore, rather than a fun challenge. I think they could've leaned into the whole building mechanics there to create fun environmental traversal challenges where you had to build vehicles to cross large pools of gloom, or rocky terrain or something.
The wind temple was also not my favourite, which worries me since I've heard people say it's the best one. The boss fight was fine, and the puzzles were okay, but overall it just felt very underwhelming and slightly boring.
I think it's worth noting that I am in the middle of very stressful exams which will likely dictate my future, and maybe my general unhappiness/stress is impacting my enjoyment of the game. Either way, I plan on deleting my save and starting again from scratch and with an open mind after my exams finish in about two weeks.

I really hope this doesn't sound too whiny, I really have enjoyed my time so far immensely! I think this is a great game and my complaints are fairly minor. Just wondering if this is just me or if others have been feeling the same?

2023.06.02 11:28 S7ewie CPU & Motherboard for NAS and small Game Servers

Hi all, I’m a complete newbie to home servers but I’ve been building and upgrading my own gaming pc for the past 14 years or so and I also have a small 2 bay Synology NAS.
I want to build a home server, partly because it looks like a really cool project but also because I want to expand my NAS and host a few small game servers. Video transcoding is not currently a major priority but I don’t want to write it off.
My first post didn't get much response so I'm hoping that if I break it down I might get more this time around.
I’m currently thinking of a 3U server chassis (though I’ve yet to find one I really like), with an ATX or Micro ATX motherboard. I’m leaning towards something like the i5-10400 for CPU but looking for advice and suggestions.
Not sure what motherboard to go with.
Storage wise realistically I'll probably start with 4 drives and that should provide me plenty of storage for some time, but the option to add another 2-4 a few years down the line would be useful.
I don’t really have a budget but I want to be cost effective, as in, I don’t want to spend 5 times more than I need to for something that will achieve my goals. Ultimately I want something quiet and efficient.
Any advice or recommendations would be massively appreciate.

Keeping Your Roof in Tip-Top Shape

Do you ever think about your roof? It's up there, protecting your home day in and day out, yet it often goes unnoticed and unappreciated. Well, it's time to change that! In this article, we'll dive into the benefits of regularly cleaning and maintaining your roof, and how South East Roof Repairs can help you keep your roof in tip-top shape. So, grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and let's explore the world above your head!

Aesthetic Appeal: Enhancing the Beauty of Your Home

Imagine driving up to a house with a dilapidated, moss-covered roof. Not the most inviting sight, is it? Cleaning and maintaining your roof not only keeps it in good condition but also enhances the aesthetic appeal of your entire home. A clean roof with no debris, moss, or algae instantly gives your house a fresh, well-maintained look. It's like a makeover for your home's curb appeal!

Longevity: Extending the Lifespan of Your Roof

Your roof is a significant investment, and you want it to last as long as possible. Regular cleaning and maintenance play a crucial role in extending the lifespan of your roof. When you remove debris, leaves, and branches, you prevent the accumulation of moisture that can lead to rotting or deterioration of your roof's materials. By taking care of your roof, you're essentially adding years to its life and saving money in the long run.

Energy Efficiency: Lowering Your Utility Bills

Did you know that a dirty roof can affect the energy efficiency of your home? When dirt, algae, or moss cover your roof, it can trap heat, making your home hotter during the summer months. This can result in increased energy consumption and higher cooling bills. By regularly cleaning your roof, you allow it to reflect sunlight instead of absorbing it, which helps keep your home cooler and reduces the strain on your air conditioning system. A cleaner roof means lower utility bills and a more comfortable living environment.

Preventing Damage: Keeping the Elements at Bay

Your roof acts as a shield against the elements, protecting your home from rain, wind, and sun. However, if your roof is neglected and not properly maintained, it can develop cracks, leaks, or weak spots, leaving your home vulnerable to water damage. Regular cleaning and maintenance help identify and address any issues before they become major problems. By proactively taking care of your roof, you're safeguarding your home from costly repairs caused by water infiltration.

South East Roof Repairs: Your Roof's Best Friend

Now that you understand the importance of cleaning and maintaining your roof let's talk about South East Roof Repairs, your roof's best friend! With their team of experienced professionals, South East Roof Repairs provides top-notch roof cleaning and maintenance services that will leave your roof looking pristine and functioning optimally.

They use environmentally friendly solutions that won't harm your roof or the surrounding vegetation. Say goodbye to moss and algae and hello to a cleaner, healthier roof!

Inspection and Repairs: Catching Problems Early

Regular inspections are essential to catch any potential issues with your roof before they escalate. South East Roof Repairs provides thorough roof inspections, identifying any damage, leaks, or weak spots. They offer prompt repairs to ensure that your roof remains in excellent condition. By addressing problems early on, you can prevent further damage and costly repairs down the line.

Gutter Cleaning: Keeping Water Flowing Smoothly

Clogged gutters can lead to water buildup, which can damage your roof, walls, and foundation. South East Roof Repairs offers professional gutter cleaning services, removing leaves, debris, and other blockages that can hinder the flow of water. By keeping your gutters clean, you prevent water from backing up and causing potential damage to your home.

Roof Coating: Adding an Extra Layer of Protection

South East Roof Repairs also provides roof coating services to add an extra layer of protection to your roof. Roof coatings act as a barrier against UV rays, moisture, and other harmful elements, extending the life of your roof. They can also improve energy efficiency by reflecting sunlight and reducing heat absorption. With a roof coating from South East Roof Repairs, you can enhance your roof's durability and save on energy costs.

Maintenance Tips: DIY Steps for Roof Care

While South East Roof Repairs provides professional services, there are also steps you can take to maintain your roof between their visits. Here are some simple maintenance tips:

Regular Cleaning: Clearing Debris and Keeping it Clean

Make it a habit to clear any debris that accumulates on your roof, such as leaves, branches, and dirt. You can use a soft-bristle broom or a leaf blower to gently remove the debris. Avoid using a pressure washer, as it can damage the roofing materials. Regular cleaning helps prevent the buildup of moisture and keeps your roof looking tidy.

Inspect for Damage: Keeping an Eye Out for Issues

Take the time to inspect your roof for any signs of damage, such as missing shingles, cracked tiles, or loose flashing. Look for any areas where water might be pooling or signs of leaks inside your home. If you notice any problems, it's best to call in the professionals at South East Roof Repairs to assess and fix them.

Trim Surrounding Trees: Preventing Potential Hazards

Overhanging tree branches can pose a risk to your roof, especially during storms. Trim any branches that are in close proximity to your roof to prevent them from scraping against the surface or causing damage during high winds. Keeping trees trimmed also reduces the amount of debris that falls onto your roof.

Clean Gutters: Ensuring Proper Water Flow

Regularly clean your gutters to ensure that water can flow freely and avoid backups that can lead to roof and foundation damage. Use a ladder to access your gutters and remove any leaves, twigs, and debris. If you're not comfortable doing this yourself, you can rely on the expertise of South East Roof Repairs to take care of it for you.

Final Thoughts: A Healthy Roof, A Happy Home

2023.06.02 10:31 lazycat1989 Trip Review - South Africa, May 2023

Just got back from a solo trip through South Africa, and despite all the cautions and reservations I heard on- and off-line, I loved every bit of it! Sharing some quick notes here for reference, and happy to answer any queries from people thinking of travelling there.
Profile
34 yo Indian man. Not the primest of targets for crime, admittedly, but I didn't really look like a poor write-off as well.
Dates
21 May 2023 - 31 May 2023
Itinerary
2N in Johannesburg with visits to Apartheid Museum, Soweto, and Rosebank Mall. Stayed at Clico Boutique Hotel in Rosebank. Found the city to be pleasant and well worth the stopover, also perfectly safe if navigated using Uber or through join-in tours.
3N in Greater Kruger, specifically at Nyati Safari Lodge in the Balule Reserve, with 2x game drives daily (morning and evening). Saw 3 of the big 5 (missed out on Rhinos and Leopards but have seen them earlier in India, so no heartache) as well as animals unique to Africa - hippos (right outside my room!), zebra, giraffes, and more antelopes than I can remember the names of. Also did a bushwalk, and loved all the bush sundowners and breakfasts. It was absolutely safe inside the lodge, the bigger threats mere mischeivous monkeys raiding the mini-bar. This was my first African Safari experience, and I loved every bit of it - can definitely see myself become a safari hoe in the years to come.
2N in Franschhoek, with a day-long self-cycle through the region (the road from Berg River Dam to Huguenot Memorial is beautiful), and more wine tastings (highly recommend Eikehof and Glenwood) than I'd had in the entirety of my life till the day. The place was my favourite in SA - beautiful, delicious, creative, and a bubble of safety. Stayed at the lovely Chanteclair guesthouse (the host Allan is a gem).
3N in Cape Town, with visits to Table Mountain, the waterfront, a peninsula tour (Camp's Bay, Hout Bay, Chapman's Peak, Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Penguin Colony, and Muizenberg), Kirstenbosch, Company's Garden, Zeitz MCAA (fantastic if you're into art) and Bo Kaap (with the lovely and free Cape Town Walking Tours). The city is easily one of the most, if not the most, beautiful in the world - the setting is spectacular, even in the cold, windy, rainy weather I was there in. It was also markedly safer than Joburg, and there were several parts of town where walking around didn't make me feel as on-edge. Stayed at Taj Cape Town (stellar downtown hotel which allows easier access to the actual city than the tourist enclave hotels of the lively but sterile Waterfront area).
Safety
Almost everyone I spoke to before visiting South Africa painted it as a free-for-all crime zone. I'd be mugged, raped, killed, or whatnot here, they said. Don't go alone. Don't go at all. All of it, ofcourse, turned out to be overblown, panic-stricken hogwash. I navigated the country without incident. BUT I didn't just stroll into town with an open wallet either - I made sure to stay at good hotels (within my budget), keep my valuables hidden away like in a secure backpack or an inside pocket, check locally for safety advice, and use Ubers or tours wherever recommended. These weren't special safety procedures designed for South Africa, mind you, they were just common precautions I'd use in any country I was visiting. It helped my travel remain incident free, and the only time I was approached by someone mildly unsavoury was when a drunk man stumbled past saying 'Good day brother' in Bo Kaap. The biggest threat to my safety in SA turned out to be marauding monkeys at my lodge near Kruger who raided the neighbouring room's minibar and made away with milk and coffee sachets. Also, contrary to some advice, things left lying around in my hotel room as well as check-in baggage at the airports remained absolutely safe and untampered.
Power (Cuts)
Load shedding is rife, and Joburg was seeing 10-12 hours of load shedding while I was there. However, all my hotels had power backup, and all the spots I visited had power backup (wherever needed), so I effectively only ever noticed loadshedding during the switch-overs between supply and gensets in my smaller Joburg and Franschhoek hotels. I even disabled the push notifications for the power supply app (ESP) because it was of no real use to me any more. Moral of the story - make sure your hotel has power backup, and carry a power bank in the unlikely event you find yourself at a cafe without electricity. Also, check up on the power points - I didn't do my research properly and had to buy two overpriced plugs in Joburg.
Weather
Joburg had crisp weather with lots of sun, but cool temperatures. Kruger had warm days and cool nights - layers were essential! Franschhoek was kinda like Joburg weather, while Cape Town was windy and rainy. The only place I could contemplate swimming was in Kruger and in the heated pool of my Cape Town hotel.
Food
EXCELLENT everywhere, even in remote Kruger. Franschhoek, however, was a highlight - if there's one place you'd want to splurge for good food, it's here. Also helps that the wine is cheap and plentiful and sublime. For vegetarians and vegans, most restaurants had symbols identifying suitable menu items, and everyone speaks English so its easy to clarify. Would recommend making online reservations at the more popular fine dining spots.
Costs
On the whole, South Africa is very affordable for someone used to American or European or Japanese or Singaporean prices, especially with the unabated fall of the ZAR. Coming from India, however, it was a bit of a mixed bag - dining out was very cheap, and hotels were great value, but domestic flights and longer taxi transfers (like Cape Town - Franschhoek or the day tours) felt expensive. Uber rides and high street shopping were just a tad pricier than I'm used to in India while the coffee and alcohol prices were an absolute delight. Entrance tickets to most sights, however, are fairly steep and much closer to the European norm than the African or Asian. That said, major sights are professionally managed, clean, safe, and have power backup.
Tipping is expected, I'd round things upward of 10% of the bill amount, except at a fine dining experience in Franschhoek where a service charge was explicitly included and informed about. Tips can be added to the card machine and need not necessarily be paid in cash.
Paying by card is practically universal in tourist-friendly spots (including entry tickets and even for smaller payments), and I didn't need to exchange any extra cash or use an ATM. Visa and Mastercard work everywhere ofcourse, and Amex has appreciable reach as well. Diner's Club and others, however, won't help.
It's good to exchange a small amount like 100 USD to help with petty payments like parking tickets or small tips or quick bites from convenience stores.
Communication
I purchased a Vodacom sim on arrival at Johannesburg, and it worked well everywhere, even giving 5G in most of Joburg, Cape Town, and Franschhoek centre. Data and talktime prices were a tad expensive (I'm spoilt because it's dirt cheap in India), but it was easy to top things up online or at stores on-the-go.
Free WiFi was widely available at airports, tourist sights, restaurants, malls etc, and worked quite decentl
Getting around
Uber works well in Joburg and Cape Town, with many local recommending Uber X. Bolt, however, was universally NOT recommended because it wasn't very reliable. I didn't try public transport, but heard that the Gautrain in Joburg and the Myciti BRT in Cape Town were safe and good quality.
I also flew from Johannesburg to Hoedspruit and Hoedspruit to Cape Town with Airlink, which was a great little regional airline with good service, punctual arrivals/departures, and a very tourist-friendly schedule and network. The tickets were quite overpriced though, and Amex refused to work on their own website, but I did get to check-in on to business class seats on economy tickets so I guess it was good overall.
I didn't self-drive. However, I met several travellers who did it (including a German lady who was campervanning solo across the entirety of southern Africa), and they reported it being easy and safe. The only precautions were to make sure you were hiring from a reputable company, not driving too much at night (out of fear of being stranded more than anything else), and purchasing the insurance plan with the agent. I did use plenty of roads, and generally observed that most highways were in decent shape and allowed for 100+ kmph speeds. Petrol stations were plentiful, and many came attached with convenience stores and mini-malls, usually with power backup. For parking, you'd usually have a local tout popping up helping you manouevre the car and watch over it for a small 5-10 ZAR tip (don't skimp on this, as petty thieves have been known to break into unattended cars to pilfer whatever they can, though I never ever saw this in action - practically every street in every town had a parking attendant on hand).
I did cycle around Franschhoek by myself and it was fantastic, much better than the kitschy Wine Tram experience. It was also very safe, and I even biked through town for dinner and some moonlight photos. The only bugbears were car traffic on the main roads, and a caution by the bike rental shop against leaving the night lamp on the bike unattended (had to unlatch it and keep it on me instead - but still, safer than biking in Amsterdam lol).
Getting there
Joburg is the biggest international airport with the better flight deals and has direct flights to all inhabited continents. It's a fairly modern and easy-to-use terminal, and I didn't observe any of the usual scams. Cape Town is the better looking airport, but has fewer connections, although it's still easy to get here with a simple transit at a major hub like London or Dubai. Durban also has a middle-sized airport with a handful of long haul links.
Most other airports are small - Hoedspruit was basically a collection of open-to-air pavillions - and have only domestic flights to the likes of JNB or CPT. Nelspruit, in southern Kruger has a few Airlink connections with Victoria Falls and the Mozambique coast, aimed at holidayers.
As an Indian, I was eligible for an evisa but the system never worked, taking my documents but never letting me pay the application fee. I instead applied manually at Delhi's VFS centre, and got my visa in 2 days (the VFS staff also told me that the evisa portal was hopeless and I shouldn't even have bothered). The evisa system finally budged while I was en-route to JNB, telling me that my application was rejected because I never submitted a bank statement (which I did) and completely ignored the fact that I never paid for my application (thanks to the inactive payment link). The rejection clearly didn't get slotted in anywhere because Immigrations was absolutely fine with my stamped-visa and didn't bother asking me anything other than why I was visiting and when I'd leave.
I flew in on Etihad via Abu Dhabi (decent airline but the airport needs a lot of work to compete with its neighbours) and back on Emirates via Dubai (excellent airline with very generous meals and a great IFE, as well as a huge and modern megahub airport experience albeit with overpriced food and shopping). Flight timings were fairly convenient both ways, with day-time arrivals and check-ins.
People
Some of the friendliest I've ever met! Everybody is happy to have a zany chat, and conversations can quickly become pal-ly and banter-ful if you're open enough. On the whole South Africans felt fairly extroverted and loosened up - very informal and sleeves-rolled-up. You'll have to excuse yourself out of a conversation, else you'll be left talking to them the whole day and not have any time left to sightsee.
Race
Speaking as an outsider who only observed things for 10 odd days, I felt that there's still a decent amount of racial segregation at play in SA.
While many lower-paying jobs are almost exclusively held by blacks and the colours thanks to the country's history of institutionalised racism, Blacks and Coloured peoples can now also be commonly seen in upscale areas as guests and visitors. However, the majority of patrons in these locations appeared to be white and Afrikaans speaking. I also only ever saw one mixed group - a white lady entertaining a black man and his daughter at a Cape Town waterfront restaurant where I was having dinner.
I did share a few drinks with Joburg-based white couples at my safari lodge, and on the whole, they didn't feel inherently racist. They in fact remembered the Mandela and Mbeki days with pride, and felt that most of the crime in South Africa was thanks to the corruption in the African National Congress (they were all praises for the opposition who holds sway in the Cape) and immigrants from neighbouring countries - they rather trusted Black South Africans for everyday affairs. At my Cape Town hotel, meanwhile, I met a few black businessmen and politicians at the pool and gym, and they told me similar things - that the ANC was corrupt, immigrants are to blame for crime etc, and didn't really have any strong opinions about whites. These experiences contrasted greatly with my conversation with a white Afrikaner pensioner in my Zanzibar hotel ten years ago, who was spewing hate against black crime after two whiskeys.
Since I'm Indian, I was often mistaken for a local - everybody (regardless of their race) would be taken aback when they heard my accent and learnt I was actually not South African (which has a large South Asian origin community) or even African (many South Asian origin peoples in eastern Africa and Mauritius especially). This spoke volumes to me - in the UK, where I studied and which now has an Indian-origin PM and a hugely visible South Asian diaspora, people would still ask me 'what country are you from?' on appearance alone. It really did emphasize how SA was more of a rainbow nation than just a slogan.
What did I like?
Practically everything, even Joburg. The safari experience was better than I expected, Cape Town was breathtaking, and Franschhoek became my favourite little town in the world. Also loved the food and the wine, and loved meeting and chatting with the locals. Of all the countries I've visited, SA is the one I'm surest about wanting to return to - and I'm not trying to be diplomatic - I honestly felt like I need more time here.
What didn't I like?
I disliked how such a great country with excellent basic infrastructure is being mismanaged. EVERYONE I spoke to was complaining about how corruption killed the country's power supply system and railways and is now threatening other aspects of life. None of these directly or visibly impacted my travels, but I would've liked being able to take a train instead of flights or not spend a premium to stay at places that had generators.
Anything I'd change?
While Joburg turned out to be a pleasant place, had I the option, I'd have skipped it to spend more time in Cape Town. I'd also spend a few more days in Franschhoek and around - the area turned out to be my favourite. Now that I've also had a lay of the land, I'm more confident about self-driving next time I visit. Also, I only realised how convenient it is to travel from SA to neighbouring countries, and would like to latch on visits to the Namibian desert, Botswana's game parks, the Victoria Falls on the Zambia-Zimbabwe border, and the beaches of Mozambique alongside a return to SA.
I realise I could have managed some things better on this trip, but bottom line is that I enjoyed it, and that this is not a 'who had the best trip' competition. I'm just sharing my positive experience of South Africa in the hope that it encourages others to properly and safely plan a trip to the place instead of avoiding it out of second-hand-scares.
Happy to take any follow ups in the comments :)

Ch5 Cartography and copper
As the sun rises over the horizon, casting its warm glow upon the rugged landscape, I find myself thinking that I need a new purpose after finishing my tools and home. With shelter, tools, a fucking bed, and what food I can find with the goblins gone. I need something to do. The time has come to unravel the mysteries that lie beyond the confines of these stone walls and the close area. Armed with crude stone tools , plant fiber woven "clothes", and my map ability. I embark on a journey to explore and document the surrounding area. maybe just maybe I will find evidence of people.
With each step I take, I carefully memorize my path, marking the terrain, the landmarks, and the animal trails. The map slowly takes shape, capturing the essence of the topology . It becomes a tangible representation of my growing knowledge, a tool that will guide me through the land that I will claim as my own.
As I venture deeper into the unknown, my senses sharpen along with my mapping skills, when I finally feel attuned to the subtle changes in the environment I seemingly get a passive skill pop-up.
UnCommon skill Type: passive Mapping Wherever the user goes will be stored and marked on a mental map.(cohesion with perfect memory user never needs to intentionally map an area all details will be stored automatically )
It is during one of my explorations in the next month that I stumble upon a surface deposit of copper—a glimmering deep green spike made of smaller spikes amidst the trees, it nearly blends in . Excitement courses through my veins as I realize the significance of this discovery. Copper ore and a lot of it. Or that's what I think it is.
Discovered your first local treasure COPPER EVERGREEN For this discovery you are gifted 2 levels.
"Well that's nice as hell treasure and levels eventually I need to spend my points but I'll save them for when I know what is useful. Welp time to get to work"
With a new project I go home and make a fiber backpack and baskets to carry as much as I can. Eventually I make my way back and start to gather the copper ore, carefully examining its quality and potential, from what I can tell it's almost pure. I did break a few of my chisels collecting enough but I planned ahead and made extra heads. The weight of the metal on my back fuels my ambition, igniting a spark of creativity within me. I must learn and practice the art of metallurgy, for in these raw materials lies the power to forge actual weapons and craft more intricate tools.
Returning to my home, next step is set up a makeshift forge, utilizing the stone chisels and a roaring fire to create a crucible. With a mix of anticipation and trepidation, then I need something to move the crucible with like leather gloves. The harder I work the more eager I am to transform it into something greater.
To get started I find a creak near my cave and search for clay and sand. After I bring enough back I mix it in with wood ash for mortar. Next I collect some nice granite rocks from the hillside and wash the dirt off. I use the old fire pit from the goblins for my forge. After mortaring the rock floor and making a rock circle and mortaring them together until I have a nice big dome with a chimney stack on top. Then I put wood in it and light it. And I keep it lit for about 2 days to solidify the mortar.
In the time I have watching my forge cook I grab a nice big rock and chisel it into a deep bowl shape. Then I chisel the best handle holds so i can to pull it out of the fire. When it's done my forge is cooled down. So I then check if it fits into the forge. It is not perfect but I can make it work.
Next is tools I need tongs, gloves, hammer ,ladle, and molds. starting with the tongs I would love metal tongs but I need tongs to make them from metal. I can see why the Jews thought god gave man his first set. but I'll have to live with a wood set first. This takes no time at all with my new skill and knife to work a set into shape. Turns out it can level up too might be worth my time, I'd love an instrument I need music.
Next my gloves lucky me I've been hunting a lot since the wildlife came back and have leftover pelts I've been working on and now is better than ever so I set to making some leather i might be able to go for real clothes soon if I can get something bigger than a rabbit.
After cleaning the old fat off with a knife and stretching it with a wood frame, and boiling the hair off in the boiling spring in the pool room. when it's dried out and is ready I use leather strips and make real shity leather mittens. They will work not perfect but at least they will hold for a few uses.
The hammer is super simple I make it same as my axe with the exception that I keep the rock big and solid.
Next a ladle for impurities and pouring it. My last forge tool starts with a stone ladle head with my chisel and then a soak in water to wash off the dust and make a hole for a handle to slot into. Then I work some wood into a handle, it's pretty easy. The I use sap and leather strips to bind the handle to the stone ladle head.
Last is simple a mold, I make a small wood frame box and fill it with wet sand. Then I carve a wood ingot and add air holes for the steam to boil out of. And a unclip able hinge to spit it in half for later.
First forge and tools created +25 chance at success Creating forgeing skill
Skill forgeing Rare The user can forge tools to mold and shape metal for most purposes.
" Nice now I can actually get to work"
after getting all my supplies set up and ore in my crucible I start on the fire .Hours pass as I tend to the fire, carefully controlling its intensity. After putting the crucible in the forge The copper begins to melt, its molten form shimmering with potential after I ladle out the impurities and rock left. After pulling the crucible out I carefully pour the liquid metal into a simple mold, allowing it to cool and solidify steam boiling out of the air holes. Then The moment of truth arrives as I retrieve the newly forged copper ingot.
Examining the result of my efforts, I am filled with a sense of accomplishment. The copper, once hidden beneath green oxidization, has now been shaped by my hands. It serves as a testament to my growing skills and resourcefulness in this harsh world.
With the first successful forging behind me, I am eager to delve deeper into the art of metallurgy. The possibilities are endless, and the rewards of mastering this craft are boundless. The once-humble cave, now transformed into a true home, will soon echo with the clanging of hammers and the rhythmic pounding of metal against metal.
As I continue to explore, map, and forge, my understanding of this world expands. Each discovery fuels my determination to thrive in this unforgiving realm. The journey is far from over, and the challenges ahead may be daunting, but I am prepared to face them head-on.
And so, armed with my newly mapped out area and the power of metallurgy in my hands, I embark on the next chapter of my adventure. The world awaits, brimming with untold secrets and hidden treasures, ready to be unveiled by the resilient spirit of William, the defender of his sanctuary.

Tech decks
Hey I’m not sure if this community is into tech decks but I’ll give it a shot. I’m trying to get into finger boarding ( particularly tech decks ) and I was looking for some on eBay. I came across this one with a cool design and a nice price tag. Is this something I should start with considering the pieces it also comes with? Thanks!
