2023.05.29 14:00 el_ave_nocturna Mistake on IEC Application

I feel as though I may be overreacting here, but I filled out my profile as it instructed for my working holiday visa, only to find documentation elsewhere stating that I filled out some parts wrong.
First, the university where I earned my master's degree is online, and as such I put the city and state where the university is located as the city/state of the university. Apparently, however, I was supposed to put my location when earning the degree. This was not stated at all in the online application. My work history completely overlaps with my degree though, and it will be obvious from that that I was not in the city that my university is headquartered.
Second, the employment history section simply asked for my employment. I have been continuously employed by the same employer for the past ten years, holding various positions and in different parts of the country. I accounted for the various positions and moves across the country, but I was apparently also supposed to account for vacations and any other time away from the company. I didn't include this because the instructions did not ask for it.
Neither of these things seem to affect my eligibility for IEC participation, but I'm concerned that if one day I apply for permanent residency, any discrepancies between what I filled out here and what is on my PR application might get me refused for misrepresentation.
Are my concerns valid? If so, what can I do?

2023.05.29 12:51 hickernator2 SDCC Exclusives and any other “one location” exclusives are outdated and an unfair concept

This is in regards to toy collecting (action figures/POP Vinyls etc)
I am not really a fan of “exclusives” in general. Sure, it is nice to have a limited edition figure etc as part of your collection, but I absolutely hate it when a company such as NECA or LEGO releases an item that is exclusive to one location in one part of the world, especially if said item is part of a collection your are specifically collecting.
Case in points:
NECA SDCC The Thing Poster Figure and the upcoming Keno figures.
For the former, I had to spend far above the RRP to obtain this figure due to its exclusivity
For the latter, I actually really would love to own it, however again due to it being a SDCC exclusive I know I’ll never be able to get it. It’s just frustrating but I know there are avid Turtles collectors outside the US who’d love to own it too.
LEGO: pirate figure
LEGO have recently released a Captain Redbeart statue figure that I really want. The only issue is that it is available only in the LEGO House in Denmark.
Now LEGO does do exclusive items available only at their stores, yet 9 times out of 10 these items are accessible to most people due to the amount of stores they have around the world.
But, again, the LEGO House is one store and one location. And say you decide to travel from Canada to LEGO House to visit and then but the figure, and the person there says “they’re all out of stock”…
Again, LEGO falls afoul of this with the Mr. Gold exclusive figure they did in the CMF series. They learned their lessons from this PR disaster, but the MR Gold fiasco was one that could easily have been avoided had it been changed instead to a “golden ticket” style thing with a code on it.
To sum up, my arguments are: 1. There should always, at the least, be an online option available to buy exclusives. 2. Items that are part of “collections” should never be one off exclusives 3. Such items should never be limited to only one location, especially when there is a worldwide fan base for said items.

2023.05.29 11:13 Throwawayfr7 32 [M4F] France/Europe - French nerd looking for someone to talk to, share interest and conversations on long term and maybe more if we get along well !

Tired of all dating app, not getting match pr having useless conversation where the girl just vanish after 2 sentences for no reasons, so I'm trying my luck here, not sure if it's worth but what do I have to lose honeslty ?
So, I'm a 32 year old guy and I'm living in France, North west to be a little bit more precise. And I'd like to find someone to get to know and see where things could go, it would be way too optimistic to say that I'm looking for someone to be in relationship but that would be my goal.
I could describe myself but I think the best is to show you a pic of me (please ignore the yellow jacket, it was for work purpose), that way you know who you're talking to right away, no disapointment or anything when I send you this !
As for my hobbies, I'm a big nerd, not gonna lie. I love playing video games, mostly on PC but I have a PS4 and a Switch too. My main online games would be LOL and I always try to find new games to play. I love to play solo games a lot, currently spamming Zelda of course !
I like watching movies, I'm a big Lord of the Ring and Star Wars fan, but Hook is still the best movie ever !
I like reading mangas, I have quite a nice collection. My favorite are FMA, MHA, GTO, One Piece and Fire Force.
I'm not really an artist but I like to paint Warhammer 40k. Blood Angels to be more precise. I would be happy to share some pics with you if you're interested !
I like cooking a little bit too, but not that much for myself, I prefer sharing this with someone. I can make you ramen, or waffle, or something else !
It would be great if we could share some of these hobbies so we can share and recommand some things to each other !
If you could be in France it would be perfect but I'd accept if you're not too far away, like in Belgium or UK ! You read this far ? Good ! That means you're interested ?Well you can send me a message with a little bit about yourself !
I hope to hear from you soon!

2023.05.29 09:32 workpermitz How Can People On A Work Visa In UK Get A British Passport

If you are on a UK work visa and want to become a UK citizen, then there are ways you can obtain it. However, some steps are involved, and it is important to understand them before starting your application. To be eligible to apply for a British passport, you first need to file for British citizenship.
How can people on a work visa in the UK get a British passport?
You can apply for a British passport by post or online. The application fee is £1,330 and takes up to six months before being processed.
You need to show that you have been living continuously in the UK for five years and have completed an English language test and a Life in the UK visa test.
The following are the steps to apply for British Citizenship and the British Passport henceforth.
The standard route is to go through five years of continuous residence, which allows people to apply for citizenship and a British passport.
This requires you to have been living in the UK for five years and cannot be interrupted by more than 450 days away from the country. You will also need to take an English test and a Life in the UK test before applying for your passport.
· First, you must live in the country with a UK work visa for five years or more.
· Then you can apply for a British passport after five years of living in the UK. You will need to show that you have been living there continuously and have indefinite leave to remain in the country.
The tests are designed so people applying from outside Europe should pass them easily. Still, if your circumstances change during this period, for example, if your partner gets married and moves back to their home country, you might find it harder than expected.
· You must also pass an English language test and complete a Life in the UK test. These tests are not compulsory, but they can be helpful if used as proof of language skills when applying for British citizenship or indefinite leave to remain as a worker or student on a skilled worker visa.
The Home Office will look at the following factors:
· Your employment history, including any gaps between jobs, job title and salary
· Any intelligence about your job opportunities or skills
· Whether other people are working for you (for example if you are self-employed)
You must pass an English language test and complete a Life in the UK test. Both tests cost about £50 each. You can take both tests online or at an approved centre. If you are over 65, you do not have to take either of these two tests.

You can apply online, but it will cost £1,330 per application. With the online service, you will get a decision within eight weeks.
If you send in your visa application by post, it costs £1,282 and will take up to six months for your application to be processed.
You have to live in the UK with a work visa for five years or more, after which point it becomes permanent residence status (PR).
After five years of continuous residence in the UK and meeting certain criteria set out by Immigration Rules 2010 section 1(4) as amended by Immigration Act 2014 Schedule 2 Part 1 paragraph 5(a) you can become a permanent resident.
You must apply for naturalization if not already British citizens or British subjects living overseas who have been resident continuously since before leaving the home country at least 12 months immediately preceding applying without interruption including time spent on leave without entry permit during a journey abroad.
Applying for British Passport
Once you have attained British citizenship, you can apply for a British passport anytime! You can apply for a British passport either online or through the post.
You can collect a passport application form from any local British post office or through the official online portal of the government of the UK.
You might also be asked to give an interview with the IPS (Identity & Passport Service) if you are above 16 years and are applying for a British passport.
After filing the application form, you should expect a response within 6 to 8 weeks. There are a few fast-track services available as well.
However, these are only applicable if you want to get your passport renewed or replaced. These services are not applicable to new passport applications. The cost of applying for a British Passport is as follows:
· First British adult passport (16 years and above – 34 pages)– It will cost you £72 for a First British adult passport if applied online and £85 if applied through couriepaper form.
· First British adult passport (16 years and above – 50 pages) – It will cost you £85.50 if applied online and £95 through couriepaper form.
· Child passport (under 16 years – 34 pages) – It will cost you £49 online and £58.50 for a paper form.
· Child passport (under 16 years – 50 pages) will cost you £59 online and £68.50 for paper form.
· Amendments, Renewals, and Replacements – Each of them will cost you £72 as well.
Even if you have attained UK citizenship, it is now always guaranteed that you will be granted a British Passport. Your passport may be rejected due to reasons such as pending court orders, etc. another point to keep in mind is that a British passport is the property of the UK government and can be withheld or cancelled if and whenever needed.

2023.05.29 04:58 RazzleLikesCandy Application for PR directly from regular work visa

Did anyone here apply for PR directly through point system?
I need to "prove" years of experience, from my company in Japan it should be relatively straight forward. However, I'm trying to understand how to "prove" it for the companies I worked for back home.
I found some things online, but it's all very vague, I can't find an official document and/or requirements.
Edit: Thank you everyone for sharing your experience and which info you had in your documents!

2023.05.29 03:14 easternblues I am nearly 30 & want to go back to college. Is that even possible?

I am a 28F based in a European country, also hard of hearing.
I started a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts at one of two top universities in my country and completed 2 years of it, but struggled with completing the 3rd year due to 14h workdays (mind you, the work was very interesting, it involved doing stuff for top global companies, and I felt I was making an impact, as opposed to sitting in a college classroom).
After dropping out of this degree, I never quite got back to the university in any larger capacity, although I had several futile attempts. Now I'm feeling more than ready to go back to my academic adventure, and as I'm researching and considering various options, I'd be more than grateful for your valuable input.
To sum up, my current situation is as follows:

2023.05.29 02:07 Kawaii-bbgorl OFW DIARIES EP 1

It's been almost 2 months since i moved abroad. Happy naman ako dito, childhood dream ko kasi 'to eh-- maging ofw. Pero totoo lahat ng sinasabi ng mga matagal na na OFW. Dito puro trabaho lang at bills. Maswerte ako wala pa akong pamilyang binubuhay kaya di ako obligado magpadala ng pera sa pinas tsaka kasama ko yung tatay ko dito. Meron rin ako iilan kakilala na dito pero hindi pa rin kami magkita kasi nga busy sa trabaho. In my case, hindi talaga ako nakakaramdam ng home sick, namimiss ko lang yung dalawa kong aso, tapos yun na. To be honest, ayoko na umuwi ng Pinas. Kung may chance na ma PR ako dito, I'll stay here for good. Aba! Ganito pala feeling mabuhay sa first world country! Mataas na buying power ng pera, may maayos na transpo system, well compensated mga tao, kahit tambay ka may matatanggap kang pera galing sa gobyerno at marami pang mas okay na dahilan para mag migrate.
Na burn out kasi ako sa Pinas, ang liit na nga ng sahod, bulok pa ang sistema. Saan ka naman nakakita ng driver's license na nasa papel lol BULOK talaga. Kahit anong gawin kong pagsisikap sa Pinas walang mangyari sa buhay ko. Nag online business ako habang empleyado tapos pinasok ko rin ang real estate kasi nga malaki ang kita pero wala pa rin nangyari. Palagi pa rin akong kapos. Tapos pakiramdam ko ang layo layo ko sa mga ka batch ko. Sila kaya nila bumuo ng sariling pamilya, may sariling bahay, kotse, business, manager na sa trabaho tapos ako parang na stuck na lang ako sa pagiging empleyado na maliit ang sahod. Dumating nga ako sa point na pati pamasahe galing trabaho wala ako. Naglalakad ako pauwi ng bahay. Dumating rin ako sa point na nalubog talaga ako sa utang. Hindi ako mahilig umutang pero dahil wala akong choice kinapalan ko yung mukha ko lumapit ako sa kung sino sino para meron ako pang budget sa susunod na linggo hanggang makasahod ulit. Naalalala ko nag video ako sa cellphone ko nun, kinakausap ko yung sarili ko, tangina anong nangyayari sa'kin bakit ako nandito? I was so depressed. Pero wala akong choice life goes on. Kailangan ko magpatuloy kasi wala naman ibang tutulong sakin kundi sarili ko lang. Hanggang sa di ko namamalayan umaayon na ulit sakin ang universe. Unti unti nabayaran ko yung mga utang ko, nakapag resign ako sa toxic kong trabaho, nakaka commission ako sa mga nabenta kong bahay, sumasahod nako ngayon dito sa abroad ng 6 digits. Yung mga hindi ko mabili sa pinas, nabili ko sila agad gamit ang 2 weeks na sahod ko dito. Sobrang saya at grateful ako. Sobrang dami ko pang plano para sa sarili ko. Pag natapos ko na lahat yun, pwede na siguro ako bumuo ng sarili kong pamilya. Masasabi kong kaya ko na bumuhay ng isa pang tao dito sa mundo. <3

2023.05.29 00:24 Prior_Crazy_3377 Lets talk GGPoker

Lets talk GGPoker
Yo Long time pokerplayer here. Online and live.
So listen, guys. This is not a whine post. Not a post about how my aces got cracked 3 times in a row. But a serious discuss that I think its very viable with to this day in age about how we should just trust sites with algorithms and fair play.
First of all I want to point out im a winning 7bb\100 cashgame player at GG and also up a ton at tournys. So this is not a whine post. My point is, and its honestly just a hunch and instinct. Instincts tho, are there for an evulationary reason, and should never be neglectet.
My hunch, and my instinct, is that something is really shady at GG. Been long time player at stars for instance, and I have never got this feeling playing at this or any other site.
For what it seems like to me, the induce sometimes to create action is just beyond. Yes, I am talking hands, 1 outers, unreasonable action flops where everyone has the goods, how often you turn more equity after calling the flop. Accounts with unreasonable high 3bet stats but always shows up with kings+ after 3betting big.

The argument I always hear is why would a pokersite this big do anything to rig the games after all the profit they are making. Or the "yes they are targeting you as a player" No, thats not it. With algorithms I dont think it would be hard today to for instance make the hard loosing players win just a tad % more prosent in certain spots, or the winning players a few % dog in certain spots. Or just a few % more action turn cards for players etcetc. If balanced I dont think it could ever be proven in a database. Where money is involved, no matter how much, the induce to making more and doing whatever you can to do so has always been the case looking at big cooporations , be legal or illegal.

Anyways, this was bugging my mind and I did some research about GGPoker and the owners also.
The guy is pr shady, and I think its worth to take into consideration.
Ofcourse I might be so wrong here, but my instincts say no. And i think the discussion is at least pr important and viable.

So, just to list a few things that is shady;
- The owner of GGPoker; Hilly Ehrlich - This guy has a history of shady dealings wich should already be alarming controling a massive pokersite. All of this guys previous companys would scratch the eye of any serious legit investor. whats different all of a sudden with GG. Apperntly as I read from another user on 2+2, " They pump money into sponsoring a football team, take as much money as they can from customers with unbeatable sports books and horrible casinos, and then close the site. Rinse and repeat."
A link to a page with investigation of this guys former brand.

- They're TOS; when signing up you are basicly giving up to you're rights of your money. They can in any cirumstance ban you, take your money and they do not have to give you a single explonation. The grey areas they are operating in are just beyond. Before you heard about winning players getting banned left and right, now that they have getting alot bigger my hunch is that they have dialed down on this to not get too much exposure but I am not sure.

Pr tired, I can go on, but I think the discussing should stand firm as we should not just close our eyes with all the shady shits going on in the world today where money is involved.
Adding a lolflop for the memes, all in on flop. (I was not in the hand)
This is the kind of thing I feel I see more freq, flops that induce crazy action pr often. = More rake obv.
Who knows? Maybe we will see another new modern black friday, in a few years, only much more sophisticated wich is my believe. But ofcourse, I might just also be out in the dark, but I will continoue to trust my instincts, and the most saddest part, still continiue to play on they're site but I think the discussing should be there and maybe sometime someday someone will come up with some real sauce :')

2023.05.28 16:29 gowlue I feel betrayed and devastated

Sorry for the vent:
I am alone and confused laying down in my bedroom looking at the ceiling. There was this woman in my life that I met online, we had so much sync and going well. Both of us were ambitious and so though we had feelings for each other she wanted to play safe because she doesn’t wanna be distracted from her goals. It was going well, we spend time with each other every day everywhere, even in my office. It was so amazing how it feels when I spend time with her. One day we had a small fight regarding who are we to each other matter and then we didn’t talk for 4 days. Then on the 5th day we both started talking and everything’s back to normal again.
One day she wanted to tell me something, I didn’t know what it was but she said it was something that’s bothering her a lot. I was like yeah sure you can tell me anything because that’s what I’m here for. What she told me killed me, that’s when I died for the first time. She slept with a guy because of the fight we had and in her words when she did that she felt this guilt that made her leave without finishing. She puked every time she thought about it, in her words she felt like shit. I felt betrayed I felt every sort of negative emotion but my love to her was so strong that I could not leave her but every bit of the cells in my body told me to. I forgave her and went back to normal again but then this guilt haunts her and she said she needs an alone time to recover. I told her take all the time you want I’ll wait for you. Fast forward few days and it seems like she got rid of every social platform including Reddit but except the platform we use to talk to each other. She said she doesn’t want anyone in her life anymore and she said she can’t even continue whatever we’re having between us. Then fast forward few more weeks she said she just wants to be alone in life and that she doesn’t want to talk to anyone. But every time something happens to her she still comes to me and tell me “everything” or so I hope. And then yesterday I found out that she has posted on make friends subReddit and few other subReddit about looking for new friends to talk to. This killed me again this is my second death, after all this I’m nothing to her but she’s still everything to me. If she just doesn’t like me then why not say that to my face? Rejection is just as important as acceptance, and she’s not doing that. I feel so angry and sad and lonely at the same time. Maybe I should have listened to my heart when she cheated me maybe I should have left her cold and brutally being nice and kind to people will only leave you hurt and devastated.
Right now I feel so hurt and alone and depressed while she’s out there socialising with people and happy. I don’t hate women, they are the most precious things in the world and they should be treated properly, protected and provided for. But man this anger and fate is getting too much for me to control. Hahaha on the bright side I beat all my PR in the gym, I beat so hard on the punching bag that my boxing partner didn’t spar with me. This power feels good hahaha. I will work on myself I’m not gonna let people like her ruin my life anymore, at-least next time something like this happens I’ll show no mercy.

2023.05.28 05:06 pieforpirates Billing Question

My child recently had an adenoidectomy. The bill has me a bit confused. I've spent the last two hours searching for answers online, but no luck... As it's late and a holiday weekend, I'm hoping someone can help me out so I don't have to wait until Tuesday to call the billing department. The bill lists the following.
" Removal Adenoids,Primary,<12 Y/O - 42830 (CPT®)"
"PR Removal Adenoids,Primary,<12 Y/O - A42830 (CPT®)"
Can someone please explain what "PR" means, why there is an A before 42830, and why both are listed?
Thank you!!!

2023.05.27 23:52 NCongoing I guess I’m starting to enjoy it.

10 years together, I(24F) got dumped by him(24M) 2 months ago. Moved back with fam to my home state.
We broke up after I confronted him for the 10th time or more after he had been snapping several of his ex high school/college classmates asking for nudes and saving their pictures(they never sent any nudes to him but he would save pics that they would take at the beach or such even when they weren’t aware of him doing this.)
He would love bomb me every time we fought and tell me that he was with me because none of them mattered enough to be with them physically. He loved me, and thats why we had been together for so long, because at the end he would only choose me.
The last time was different. He was done with me not trusting him. Everything was trough the phone and he was with me 24/7 so why couldn’t I trust him? Why couldn’t I trust you when I gave my whole self to you, when I was working out to look good for you, when I was becoming a better person each day for you, and you were going on my back with all those girls, telling them the things that you NEVER told me, why? Why didn’t I trust you when you were so deserving of my love and trust? Right?
Why didn’t I leave early? Why did i put up with the beatings, the emotional cheating, the late night cryings, the yelling, the silent treatment, why?
It was because i thought i couldn’t live without you. Wrong. How wrong was I to think that you were my only source of love and life.
We were still talking 2 weeks ago. I’m assuming it was due to the trauma that bonds me to you.
You got mad after I didn’t answer for a couple hours, I guess you forgot I was at work.
I reached back, apologizing for me being busy. I would always apologize, even though I wasn’t at fault. I guess some things always stay the same.
You saw my texts, where I begged you to stay and told you it wouldn’t happen anymore and that i was going to be more aware of my phone.
You didn’t answer back, i texted you for a full week without no response. Good morning texts, and goodnight texts. Seeing the “online” under your name felt like a stab. You haven’t even read those messages.
This last week was different. I went to sleep Sunday, woke up Monday hoping to see a text after a week of NC on your end yet there was nothing.
I got ready, went to work. Haven’t texted you since Monday. Its been fuc-king liberating. I feel so free. I went to my first ever concert 2 days ago. You know how much of a fan I am of this artist. I bawled my eyes out there knowing that I could enjoy stuff without you. I heard our songs live, almost face to face with this artist and you’re not even aware of this. I enjoyed every moment of that concert.
I no longer have to tell you every move i make or every decision i take. I thought NC was going to feel like shit but after being controlled for almost half of my life, I guess I’m starting to enjoy it.
I wont say that I don’t miss you, because i do. And it hurts to not know what your doing or how you are, but it feels so nice to not be worried of if you will get mad for me going out of the house or take a nap.
The PR team and the artist put some of the concert pics online and I am well seen on most of them since I was on the front line, I hope you see them, this time I’m not afraid, now it’s my time to be okay.

2023.05.27 21:37 franklyfreak Unconventional career advice

TLDR: Is it okay to stick to the philosophy of "I will do what I like & I won't run after money" while living in a middle class family from a third-world country?
I am from a third world country, a place where jobs are not readily available. I am currently working as a social media coordinator at a national branch of an international PR company. The office is shitty, the administration even more so, and I am going to leave it anytime I can. The issue is, I don't have any preference except to do my dream job, which is UI/UX interface designing.
Being a major in investigative journalism, my studies doesn't help me. I learn the UI/UX stuff from Youtube, a course by google and some practical application designing on figma. I would rate myself 7/10 here because I have never worked proffesionally in this field, yet. Any job I get in this field will probably be the launch of my real career, a dream job per se.
Previously, I had experience with wordpress CMS managment and I would rate myself 8/10 there. Except for strictly developing the plugins (which requires PHP knowledge), I don't think there is anything in Wordpress backend and frontend that I can't solve. And I have worked in the market as a wordpress web-dev as well.
I have a diary and a blog online in which I write articles. My online journal is well into 700+ posts now. Being an investigative journalist, I had an interest in the stuff that is economy, philosophies and the business of money, ethics, fate, freewill, theology etc. Long story short: I write sometimes, but when I do, things are usually articulate and to the point. Btw, I am a political activist and left-leaning. I would rate my writing skills about 8/10 based on the fact that I do a lot of it, I like it and I have done it professionally to some extent as well.

I used to do photography. I can handle cameras to the point that I know basic settings (exposure, shutter speed, focus types, ISO, night and day shooting etc). I know basic photoshop (Hue, Saturation, Color Grading, Highlights and shadows etc.) I know premiere pro even though I used KdenLive (linux) and Filmora (window) to edit most of the videos I made in my life (video for recruiters, introductory video, school projects etc.) I would rate myself 6/10 here because I don't actually enjoy this work, I have no proffesional experience in it and I don't have much of a portfolio per se.

I love organizing. Infact, that's like my crush. I have passed the stages of Notion, ClickUp, Todoist and so, and now I am into more narrow, niche todo+PKM apps. An example is I just attended onboarding zoom call the other day. Anytype is stiil in beta but I loved it so, I had to try it out. I am using and rn but I am always thinking of new apps to find and try. I would rate my knowledge in Life management apps about 8/10. I don't have a professional experience in this field but man do I love to plan out my day! I think if there only was a way I could get paid to manage people's calendar's and preferences from a third world country, woah!

And I am into 3d animations now. The donut tutorial did not work out (its a hugely popular blender tutorial on youtube but I could not follow full because blender has been updated). I am following another tutorial now to learn 3d modelling and hopefully in the future, I will be able to make 3d videos.

Lastly, for a final year project, I am making a documentary on climate change. I am doing a meta course about front end development to compliment my experience in UI/UX designing so whenever I get a chance to work in that field, I don't miss it. And ... I am on the lookout for a new Life management app.
You see a career in there for me? I like many things. I have an experience with even more things (entrepreniurship, dropshipping, inline skating and more which I don't even remember now). Do you think I will be able to support my family with this diverse knowledge?
Oh and btw, I hate social media as its cons far outweigh its pros. So I don't post all this on my normal accounts. Except for the diary, I did not post anything on internet, of much significance.
Think someone will hire me :xd?

2023.05.27 21:03 Zestyclose-Level1871 Queen Elizabeth II Has Turned Out To Be A True Original Godfather After All....

According to the International Business Times, her late majesty QE2 left everything to KCIII. This was the result of an inheritance agreement the BRF made back in the late 1990s. Prince Andrew was also apparently cut from her will as well. And according to Stylecaster, QE2 seems to have cut an additional 2 people from her will:
  1. The obvious One-who-will-not-be-named here
  2. The female scion of the One-who-will-not-be-named here
Ouch. This blistering burn has to be positively emanating gamma radiation and heat from the Duchy of Montesh8to to date...
So what did Meghan Markle inherit from Queen Elizabeth? Representatives told Forbes in 2021 that Harry was not a beneficiary of any of the $100 million left to the royal family by his great-grandmother, the Queen Mother. Radar Online confirmed that in September 2022, reporting: “There’s a very good chance the Queen won’t leave either of them any jewels of value,” a source said. “It’s not surprising, since they’re not members of the royal family anymore, but it would be a real slap in the face.” Radar Online also reported that Meghan’s sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, who is set to inherit $110 million in jewelry from the Queen, will likely pass some of her jewels to their niece because she and her husband, Prince William, “really don’t want Lilibet to be left out.”
As for Meghan, she’s not their concern,” the insider added. As for why the Queen left Meghan out of her inheritance, Radar Online’s source speculated that it could be due to either “practicality” or Harry and Meghan’s drama with the British royal family in the years leading up to the Queen’s death. “Some people think it won’t be out of spite, but practicality,” the insider said. “Others say it would be the Queen sending a message to Meghan and Harry: You reap what you sow.”
Adding a little Caroline pepper into a briny wound, it turns out the ginger handbag did NOT inherit any of his Great Grandmother (the Queen Mother's) wealth. Turns out her $100M inheritance was distributed among family descendants---minus Haz. Leaves one wondering what changes Prince Phillip made to his will shortly before he died. And why the necessity to seal it from public revelation for nearly a century from now. Then again the reasons for this seem a bit obvious based on this revelation about QE2's last minute will modifications,....
No wonder the Duke of Montesh8to has been acting so erratically to date. He NEEDS all bad and good Ppublicity he can get. Because it's 1) not only mandatory form him to remain relevant as an A list celeb, but 2) is also the only way to keep TW accustomed to the high society station to which she is now accustomed.
One could almost feel sorry for the Ginger Handbag.

2023.05.27 20:32 TheAnonymouseJoker GrapheneOS – Corporate FOSS loving witch hunting crybullies feat. PrivacyGuides and DivestOS

Hello! I have been sitting on top of this since a year, and now is the perfect time to voice it out. Enough is enough! I have been on the lookout for this dreaded group since years, and even though I covered this group largely before, it is essential to cover rest of the elements I could not give space to in my previous expose writeups, due to lack of ample evidence and sheer amounts of writing that does not allow enough space for one particular group.
This Canadian (yes, took time to know that) group of trolls is nothing significant today, thanks to largely efforts of people dishing out ample evidence about them, but they tend to fabricate way too much lies in a concerted manner across Reddit, 4chan, YouTube comments and the like, all while simultaneously fabricating boogeymen cabals that apparently attack them. Today, even Louis Rossmann has felt the wrath.
It is critically important to trace and decode the patterns of their workings and Kiwifarms-like behaviour on internet, and I see this group as the next big threat to privacy community, simply because they have been persistent and think they are unstoppable.
My aim is to try to stay objective throughout as much as I can. I also want to mention that this is a lore that basically nobody other than me has tracked in this depth (arguably Techlore has enough material), and nobody else carries a record of these events in this manner to date.


I have been more curious than anyone else, trying to decode his behaviour psychologically to the best of my capabilities and experience on internet by myself. This person is claimed to be either mentally ill or narcissistic by various people, as of now. But I do not think he is simply narcissistic, because he consciously and responsibly knows very well what he does. As I show you screenshots of DivestOS incident, you will know why.


I will describe events in a chronological order since last year's "criticism of ... 4 years of evidence" magnum opus I wrote, making this the 5th year of "security" entities in FOSS community continuing to engage in awkward behaviours and exploiting the lack of expertise of ordinary folks who skim through various privacy communities. I recommend going through this first if you want to know everything about the backstory about privacy community's related issues. (


I read a couple of years ago somewhere, GrapheneOS describing how they are an embargo security partner. However, I cannot find those reddit comments anymore, so the next best option is a tweet from August 2022 by the horse's mouth. One person alone building monthly patches for years for supported Pixels compared to Google Inc seems like quite an impossibly tall order to me.


Exactly one day after I published the 4 year criticism magnum opus on May 1 2022, what I see on the afternoon of May 2 2022 is this.
One long thesis with zero citations. Hubris. This guy loves to talk about character assassination after pissing off people, and when he gets civilly criticised, this happens.
You can remove the part ( and check currently how Jonah Aragon, head of PrivacyGuides, fully endorses these claims, and to this day, has a shared moderator (mbananasynergy) with GrapheneOS subreddit (earlier it was B0risGrishenk0/Tommy_tran whose new alt is Privsec_dev). You may also check how after a year, the post mostly has [deleted] users and comments, all being GrapheneOS sockpuppets and harassers abusing pseudonymity offered by Reddit. These are the people that scream everyday how sockpuppet harassment occurs to them.
He did this on Twitter as well.
In the tweets down the chain, he says:
That person is a tankie who supports authoritarian governments and peddles lies for them [...] It might as well be official CCP propaganda too.
Is there any problem with liking certain countries that you hate, because of geopolitical preferences and news media propaganda? How xenophobe can you be, to think Indians/Asians must like same geopolitical narratives as Canadians/Westerners? I do not believe in Western nationalist tropes, and I think it is fair for everyone to have this freedom.


Here is the moderation list of GrapheneOS. Here is it, straight from the horse's mouth.


There has been a recent incident from late April 2023 (a month ago) where Daniel Micay claimed he has faced a swatting attempt (attempt to raid house and murder), and a certain CP and gore spammer flooded GrapheneOS chatrooms with this type of nasty troll content, but in one month, he has NOT provided any evidence. Moreover, he claimed Royal Canadian Metropolitan Police (RCMP) is investigating this matter, and then proceeded to lockdown the GrapheneOS Off-Topic Matrix chatroom (place of claimed incident) for sometime.
For context in follow up, Lemmy is a free and open source federated Reddit alternative, that is fully federated with Mastodon, Twitter's free and open rival.
This faux threatening using Canadian police's credentials reminded me of a very similar incident that I faced at Lemmy from two moderators (akc3n from GrapheneOS and dngray from PrivacyGuides) on behalf of Micay. I am the moderator of c/privacy at Lemmy, and this was their failed attempt at trying to rage bait me into reacting hastily, causing administration to revoke my moderation powers, so that GrapheneOS trolls could make Lemmy their next place of habitat, something I protect Lemmy from.
During this incident, due to the chaos that the tag team of GrapheneOS and PrivacyGuides (remember they still have shared moderator after Tommy?) caused, one Lemmy administrator warned me, because they got scared about the name of police being involved. Tommy_Tran/Privsec_dev proceeded to get me banned from Lemmy c/privacy's Matrix chatroom by tag teaming with dngray (PrivacyGuides moderator) to bait the moderator of that Matrix chatroom in believing I was the troll. Tommy took over soon enough and changed the room into some Windows/GrapheneOS Security crap, and later the moderator of Matrix chatroom itself moved off of (Lemmy's main instance) onto (coincidentally a Canadian instance). I do not know if these Canadians are friends or just fellow countrymen, but what they did was insanely evil. (Instances are like separate websites that can still operate like they are the same forum/website.)
Screenshot of c/privacy Matrix room takeover and trolling behind my back, knowing what they have pulled off:


Another horse and his mouth. N-n-neighhh!!! Since Reddit made API paid and Pushshift archival service has said goodbye forever, I can only show you the thread with barely any comments leftover as proof combined with the screenshot I preserved from back then.
Tommy loves Micay so much, he started to accuse me of being a Chinese government shill in exactly the same way Micay did in May 2022.
Now a ghost town of comments: (
Screenshot: (see the blue highlighted portion at the very end, at about 20% height from below)


Yes, this happened, and this is my favourite part as far as everything GrapheneOS head/mods have done to date. As dramatic as it sounds, Micay in realtime, in DivestOS' XMPP chatroom, was accusing me of the typical "harassment ringleader campaign" BS, and ordered DivestOS/Mull developer (these are his aliases) SubZer0Carnage/Tad/SkewedZeppelin that if I was not banned immediately, DivestOS and him would face social media targeted campaign and DivestOS will have to forcibly pull off any borrowed GrapheneOS code. DivestOS developer dusted his hands off me, since he does not like me apparently for liking some closed source software and he benefits off of the crybully. Also, unlike the crybully, I have never harassed or harmed anyone because I have a moral conscience to not be an abusive asshole on internet, so he will face no issues on my end.
Screenshot 1:
Screenshot 2 continuation:


See, the point is Google and Apple are spyware/ad companies at the end of the day, and it does not matter if you need to use their services due to necessity. The technicality of it does not change, and people simply make privacy compromises for convenience or out of necessity. I do not have anything against that. What I am against though is this weaseling being done in privacy community, knowing people want to prevent privacy abuse from corporations and governments.
I use Windows (and Linux) daily according to how I laid it out in my computing guide in a very private and secure manner. I understand the use cases of common people extremely well, even better than just about all of privacy community, having been a Windows user all my life and daily driving Linux exclusively since 6 years (now dual boot).
These specimens come and evangelically claim how Google and Apple do not spy on people, and how "degoogling" is a nonsensical concept. The reality is, basically all of these peoples' knowledge other than Micay and DivestOS dev, is as good or worse than a first year sophomore computer science student. They mostly parrot the typical points that they formulate based upon things they would hear in their own little world of shitty security blogs, reddit and whatever proficionados like Micay and developers at XDA would blabber about, creating reductionist notions in their head they can just preach around.


I do not know enough to be able to browse every YouTube comment section of every tech related video made on custom ROMs on phones, but what I know is Luke Smith is fairly popular among Western youngsters regarding tech topics. He is a more extreme version of Mental Outlaw, for those that are clueless.
When I saw this, I was astounded. Cellebrite is an Israeli cybersecurity company whose phone exfiltrating kits cost upwards of $1 million, and are only purchasable for government agencies like TSA, police and forensic departments. This company purchases 0day vulnerabilities in commonly used smartphone apps which allows them to run their phone hacking government nexus. How are these GrapheneOS people buying million dollar kits when Micay only has one desktop computer for his GrapheneOS ROM binary compilation? The answer is - it is a lie attempted to be spread like rumour.
One would think, why would anyone be concerned about going this far? I am usually the person who people try to follow on, since I pose good questions regarding a lot of things. In this case, the question would be: if GrapheneOS claims bootloader lock security for protection against Evil Maid and other bootloader attacks, is it secure against phone hacking kits at airports or against state actors? Has GrapheneOS' security ever been vetted independently? Since regular Joe on the street is not a proficionado, would it be okay to ensure selling claims of such extreme security of GrapheneOS is battle tested? People started asking these questions that always went unanswered. You get the idea.


If you go to any of the 4Chan archives for /g/ board, and search "graphene" or "pixel", you will find both of these mentioned together many times, which is a very interesting phenomenon. This is known as astroturfing. Here is a compilation of /g/ comments from the last 6 months.
privacy suffered the same and sheltered Micay against all criticism until last month when Micay accused privacy moderators of sheltering claimed CP/gore spammer and swatter, followed by a lot of vote manipulation and sockpuppet brigading, leading to privacy shutting down all discussions relating to any specific AOSP custom ROMs.


This is the spiciest part for most people in the know about this, and it has been one whole month since the claims. However, neither local Canadian news media has reported anything on something that would be as significant as swatting a software developer, nor has he presented evidence upon being asked by numerous users. Upon being asked, Micay has either ghosted or banned people, or accused them of being complicit in his self-proclaimed attempted murder.
What he is doing here is using psychological trickery of dead cat strategy, creating a loop of "mysterious" act that only he and his 2-3 moderator friends know about but have, upon being repeatedly requested by dozens, denied to give a shred of evidence, and has attempted to use this dirty sensationalist act to gain sympathy. He has also utilised the effect, until now, of relying on the goldfish attention span of masses regarding world events, so that people forget questioning his shocking claims and think his gospel is the immortalised truth.
Moreover, he has a history of never giving any evidence for his claims he has made over the years. Techlore and I have noted and documented this dozens of times at this point, and one Reddit user involved with using GrapheneOS undertook the effort to do this as well.
In the past 24 hours, after Rossmann's video came out, Micay announced that not just is he claiming to step down as developer of GrapheneOS, but that "police know about the swatting situation and are preventing it happening again". How did it go from blocking and ghosting dozens of people upon asking for evidence, to a month later claiming "oh all is good I am quitting social media have a nice day"? Is everyone this gullible? Is there no course of action, or no accountability to present evidence publicly (let alone block users asking) for the duration of an entire month? Nobody is asking for CP material, and evidence of such incident could have easily been shown. Micay engages on social media almost everyday, in a terminally online manner. The reality is, he is escaping accountability after failing to get sympathy from baseless sensationalist claims. Dead cat strategy works until it does not, and people hate being taken as fools for long enough.


The incident that happened with me from June 2022, in a nutshell, is faux RCMP (Canadian police) threats in order to sensationalise and scare off me and Lemmy's admins into thinking I was onto some serious wrongdoings, creating an image of things that never happened or never will happen. The exact same scare off tactics happened with Micay's fresh claims in late April 2023, which constitutes psychological manipulation of privacy and Android community users to gain attention at all costs. Bad PR is good PR, and good PR is great PR.


This is the compilation post.
The only ever real conflict that materialised enough into a spat, where I did support Micay, was when CopperheadOS CEO James Donaldson and him had their catfight going on, and when Donaldson asked me in DMs to harass Micay in an organised manner. I protected Micay.
Coming to basically every single claim Micay has made about me, Techlore, CalyxOS, F-Droid, Bromite, FlorisBoard developers/heads and so on... Micay has NEVER EVER provided proof justifying his claims. That is right, NEVER, not in a single case. All he has ever done, is scream and shout sensationally, utilising dead cat strategy over the years. There does exist a reason for why he has done all this, which I will elaborate on in a section below.


privacy has now purged comments of these Graphene/Pixel zealots, but there was a certain phenomenon that started after the Black Friday/Christmas sale regarding how financially "accessible" Pixels were, leading these single origin sockpuppets and astroturfers to spam comments with this theme in every "phone recommendation" post/thread. After the Black Friday sales ended, they went ahead and started recommending Swappa/Craigslist used handsets over anything else, with the idea that if you do not buy Pixel, you might as well be directly streamed 24/7 live to 3 letter spook agents. How much more elitist, misleading and toxic can one be when trying to improve privacy of average people?


It is known among Google Pixel buyers and USA/Canada phone buyers, that Pixels have extremely limited availability by country. The amount of mental gymnastics required for someone to tell they need to travel by airplane to other countries to get one specific phone, if they want to have any privacy and security on a phone, forces me to say this - you need medical assistance. When a community goes ahead to do this, what will be your reaction? Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
Here you go.


Tommy was originally made the moderator of PrivacyGuides (PG) exactly one day after he published the "false privacy prophet" post on me (, a post that had no evidence, and trended for an entire month at PG. This person has been a key member and friend of GrapheneOS mods and Micay himself. He thoroughly ensured that Micay's personal grudge based ideas were echoed through PG, and fellow mods like dngray, trai_dep and Jonah fully supported this. akc3n, a fellow GrapheneOS moderator, was always active in threads with them, essentially heavily controlling participation of users at every level. This sounds as ridiculous to me as it does to you, and to this day (May 27 2023), mbananasynergy is a shared moderator between GrapheneOS and PG. You might wonder, the subheading above has still not been addressed. How did I get silenced? Read below.
The exchange between Jonah Aragon and me.


Reddit's decision to cripple Pushshift's archival service is intentional. It allows to generate negativity and drama, which will lead to more internet traffic like how Elon Musk loves the new "town square" Twitter. More internet traffic translates to more value when Reddit becomes public entity for shareholders. This causes a nerve busting headache for sitewide moderation, and everyone knows it.
GrapheneOS, as demonstrated and as observed by basically everyone, is extremely formidable at sockpuppet trolling and witch hunting of critics. The definition of a "critic" for them is anyone who does not worship GrapheneOS. Period. Louis Rossmann sees how this makes sense, and so does everyone else. Refer to the "HOW GRAPHENEOS WITCH HUNTS ANY OF ITS CRITICS" section above.


A little angry rant on privacy community as a whole
Privacy community seriously is pathetic in keeping people accountable and vetting the products/tools and their developers, for all the vigilante preaching that goes on in here. It took me to create privatelife and bring some change, and I do not know how much change has been brought about. People just want to look good, nobody cares about actual democracy and putting in the effort to maintain it. Everyone wants their hands clean, expecting others to do the watchdog job, and nobody ends up standing in the crowd. I am from India and I should care zilch about privacy community filled with "democratic westerners" not standing up for themselves, and living like sheep in a dictatorship of some FOSS, corporate and closed source developers/entities. Why do people want to dust their hands off of everything like X or Y incident has nothing to do with them? Where did the concept of solidarity go? Why does nobody want to hold people accountable for being assholes?


Rossmann came out yesterday with a descriptive video with a screen recording of his chat with Micay, where Micay accused him of all that he has gone to accuse literally everyone under the sun during the past month, and folks like me during the past few years. Some reddit users have been targeted with the same, and found solace in talking to me and whatever I have documented on Micay and his acolytes, among other topics and groups.
Rossmann's video on uninstalling GrapheneOS:
The video is gaining attention because of how much goodwill Rossmann's deeds towards Apple repairing and Right to Repair movement has garnered over the past 10-15 years. And he is a good person. My only disappointment with him has been missing the mark on, and being silent on GrapheneOS all this while. I get his reasons of benevolence towards FOSS projects, but we need to be stricter about social conduct. Nothing excuses being a horrible person, as far as civil discourse goes.


More than almost anyone else, I have been interested in why he turned out like this. I will preface this by saying I do not fully believe he is autistic, and even if he is, it does not explain this kind of "me versus the world" impulsive behaviour.
Last year, sometime after he wrote that "paid Chinese government agent" comment on me, I decided to try to genuinely sympathise with him for one more time and see his response. (feel free to read with context
He went silent on me and stopped attacking me. Considering I have documented his behaviour for a few years, I have a well supported conjecture that is better than "BPD/schizo".
Originally, Micay made the memory allocation hardening patch for Linux kernel, but never got a fulfilling wealthy life or career out of it, considering how many of his years later went down quarrelling with CopperheadOS' Donaldson. He quit Copperhead organisation to maintain his fork under the name of GrapheneOS, which is a free open source project. Lack of success in life is the first condition fulfilled.
The second part of this consists of many smaller parts.
I noted last year how in the below reddit thread/screenshot, Daniel Micay and madaidan argue together against Firefox. Before the Tor Project mailing list happened in August 2019, the whole anti-Firefox sentiment mysteriously used to not exist in GrapheneOS community. This is probably the first instance of Micay's resentment towards a large FOSS project.
For context, I would ideally advise to read through the "criticism... 4 year evidence" writeup, but an easier way to go through this is knowing about madaidan and his "toilet paper" (I did not call it that) blog attacking FOSS projects' security while simultaneously recommending the antithesis of privacy - Windows, MacOS, Google Chrome et al.
This is one part of how Micay started to become an isolated toxic person developing hate for FOSS projects for others not conforming to his ideas of how things should be done. This was also the first moment where he took a step towards the Google Big Tech black hole.
Slowly, however, he started to attract the "security zealots" in privacy and FOSS community. What happened here is explained by Dunbar's number, which says a human can only form relationships with 148 people. This number falls to a maximum of 30-50 if you are not particularly extroverted or prefer a smaller group. All of the "security zealots" found some comfort together, creating a loosely linked group where everyone can unite with certain talking points, regarding bashing Linux/Firefox security, preferring Big Tech obscure security products and services, and allowing to normalise the various toxic behaviours everyone individually bears, in the name of "oh IT security people are just bad at social skills". I can count these 15-20 people which allows me to be a bit more confident in what has happened.
People do not know much about this, but Micay used to fantasise replacing Linux kernel with Google's Fuchsia microkernel, a... Google project, because Linux is insecure and trashy. The issue here is that while he did work on Linux kernel patch in the past, he does not anymore, because he has started to develop resentment against any FOSS projects that are not fully conformant with his ways. Linux simply never gave him the success. Micay is apparently entitled to get the fruits, not realising individual work on Linux is largely a communistic effort. Free open source movement is by design democratic and for the community/society first.
Sometime ago, someone informed me of Micay (alias thestingestrcat) creating drama with Bromite (on which their Vanadium browser fork is based) and FlorisBoard projects. They labelled those project maintainers with very bad, false epithets, like "you will be tied to a group engaging in Kiwi Farms level abuse and tolerating neo-nazis". Well too bad, witch hunting people is what you people admittedly do and call it market research.
I should not need to elaborate on GrapheneOS' attitude towards Techlore (he has 2 videos on it) and CalyxOS (again Techlore partially covers CalyxOS).
GrapheneOS members, Micay and his friends like Wonderfall have attacked F-Droid in the name of security, only to push using Google Play Store that annihilates all privacy of people. Google Play Services gather every possible metric about your phone which includes sensor, location, IP address, telephone number, IMEI and so on every 7 minutes. Just to be fair, Apple does the same things and is far worse. This theme of evangelising Google products at the cost of bashing all other projects is a thumb rule for GrapheneOS community.
Micay finding solace among his "security zealot" friends allowed him to go unchecked and grow into a very malicious person, targeting FOSS projects, individuals, organisations and privacy communities with a lot of sockpuppet trolling, vote manipulation, dishonesty, normalising horrific social etiquette, demonising and witch hunting any and all people that do not worship GrapheneOS. It is borderline criminal and is a surprise to me how people are okay with someone like him. I have two explanations for this - either the ones okay with this themselves share some of these behaviours, or they themselves use GrapheneOS and due to sunk cost fallacy and/or fear of Micay personally targeting them, they either defend him or keep their mouths intentionally shut. An insignificant number of people accept him merely because of benevolence towards FOSS projects IMHO.


The problem is not Daniel Micay. The problem is this kind of mindset that has been able to breed and flourish in society. Today, this Micay might go. Tomorrow, another Micay will come under a different name or even this very person under an alias. Privacy community needs to stop being such selfish and individualistic. People need to stop procrastinating or avoiding vetting of these people. I understand tools and code is hard to vet, but people behind the projects can absolutely be vetted. Giving space to elements like these toxic "security zealots" in tech is not bravery or benevolence, it is stupidity and disgustingly selfish. This is precisely why rulebooks like Code Of Conduct have become increasingly popular. We need to give people and projects the boot from society that do not follow Code Of Conduct, and especially pretentious groups like GrapheneOS ( that pretend to have civil rules but do the exact opposite to everyone that disagrees with them.
Since enough people may not have understood this, I will repeat it, as I end this text file with some internet rules.

2023.05.27 19:35 JOJOXI Should I buy the ASUS TUF F15

I am planning on buying the Asus TUF F15 - Link to website and specs.
However, looking online I see a lot of issues about the laptop throttling to ridiculous extents when unplugged.
I would like to know if this is a common issue - I've seen a few posts about it but people are far less likely to post that their laptop is performing as expected when unplugged (are good reviews evidence of this or just evidence that they are using laptop like a desktop) so I don't want to miss out on a laptop with impressive specs and at a decent price point if this issue is actually only effecting a few users.
However, whilst I plan to mostly use this laptop when plugged if it is near unusable (by sounds of it) when unplugged that probably changes my mind as to whether to buy it.
