Reasonable Pricing
Calling all roofing pros
What would you charge? Is $1000 a square way too much?
I'm not a full time roofer (yet), I'm a general contractor. A good customer called me to install a roof on a porch cover. Classic homeowner special, lots of things done wrong or half done. An hour into the country. Had to do a day or two of carpentry to get it ready. 3 planes, 4 skylights, flashed at the house, 350 sq ft. Could barely put 3 shingles on anywhere before having to cut. Every piece of step Flashing had to be cut to height. One of the planes is actually walkable, but that one isn't 1 rectangle but 2 rectangles put together. One plane with 2 skylights is 6 inches away from a giant tree
He wanted to do hourly, but to me it seems like it came out to a lot. This customer can be a pain in the ass, but I've got some integrity. I know standard pricing for a standard roof in my area is like $650-$850 a square materials and labor, and that's normally what my prices come out to on roofs I've done in the past. This one just had so many flashing details, and was so awkward to work

2023.05.28 18:41 MrsCCRobinson96 Niko is still available & looking for his forever home.

Please note that five people (families) who've been interested in taking Niko and that have even filled out an application have all backed out at the last minute even before meeting Niko hence my frustration at this point. I had to create a new post because I wasn't able to edit his previous post. Please share and comment with any helpful information. I passed on the information already to Niko's owner from the original now deleted post. Thank you everyone for commenting. ❤️
Update: Niko is still available!!! Please if you are going to consider adopting Niko please ensure that all steps have been taken prior to filling out an application and setting up a meeting such as discuss having an additional pet with your significant other. Backing out at the last minute is completely unacceptable and unfair to Niko not to mention the time, energy and effort that people such as myself are putting into finding him a forever home! Thank you!!
Please keep in mind that re-homing a pet is a process that takes time and Niko is significantly running out of time! Dogs have emotions and need time to adjust and adapt to changes. Please consider this fact if interested in Niko. Please apply through his adopt a pet profile. It's simple, quick and easy. Thank you.
Original post: Owner of Niko has exhausted her efforts to try to re-home Niko.I have tried everything that I can to help find Niko a new home but life has gotten the best of me and I have a lot of things on my plate at this time.
Niko needs to be re-homed ASAP! He might be good with cats. This is unknown. He probably would be good with other dogs his own size or larger. Preferably not any smaller than medium size dogs. It is unknown how he would interact with children therefore households with children under 8 are not being recommended. The only way to know for sure is by scheduling a meet up.
Niko has a very short time to find a home. This shy boy needs a home ASAP. His owner is moving in a week or so possibly two weeks tops. Basically, as soon as she situates her house is situated.
Here is his adopt a pet profile 👇👇👇
Niko is a Thai Ridgeback/Belgian Shepherd Dog mix per the shelter that she adopted Niko from. To know for certain he'll need a DNA test. It's URGENT that Niko finds a new home, a foster or a no kill shelter. He will be taken to the nearest city animal control location if a home is not found for him however his owner is looking for alternatives to a local shelter as well. As we all are aware majority of them are kill shelters and the no kill shelters are maxed out!! His rehoming is of no fault of his own. It's a circumstantial re-homing. His adopt a pet profile is ☝️☝️☝️.
*Please Note: I am not the owner of Niko. I am not the responsible party who has ownership of Niko! I am volunteering my time and services to find him a loving home! The facts are that most shelters locally (within a 80 mile radius are kill shelters) and the facts are that many rescues are at full capacity and there is a shortage of Fosters. None of which are my fault by any means! So please refrain from rude comments that are off topic. The topic is helping find Niko a forever home and he sure could use all the help that he can get at this point. Thank you!!! *
Meet Niko!!! Meet Niko!!!
With full permission from my neighbor (his owner)...she's asking me to post Niko on Nextdoor & Facebook in hopes that he can be re-homed into a loving forever home. He's a shy playful boy that has some social anxiety. There is a possibly that when he was a smaller puppy he might have been neglected or abused. She rescued him from a shelter about a year and half ago. The shelter is at full capacity again and cannot take him back. He was roughly 6 months old when she rescued him. He's about 2 years old now.
Niko is neutered and is potty (house) trained. He is friendly but shy as well as shows signs of anxiety therefore it is recommended that he is the only dog or one dog amongst a small pack of other dogs' about medium/large size within the household. She recommends that he is re-homed with a family that has a decent sized yard and kids over 8 years old or no kids. Retirees would be preferred or a family with kids in middle school, highschool or college.
Niko is complete and up to date on all of his shots and vaccines. She has all the the adoption paperwork, veterinarian paperwork, microchip paperwork and he is microchipped. He prefers to be outdoors most of the time but he is an indoor dog too. He loves night time cuddles. He does bark sometimes when there is a reason to bark but aside from that he's a really chill dog that loves his toys. He loves playing with his toys and interaction. He's just shy, curious and displays signs of anxiety.
Niko comes with his toys, food, treats and anything else. All she is asking is that he has a good loving home with a yard. She is currently in the process of dealing with a domestic violent situation with her soon to be ex-husband and she needs to move ASAP to her Mother's house in Austin. She cannot take Niko with her which she is devastated about. She wants him re-homed as soon as feasibly possible. The rehoming fee is $20.00 but negotiable which is more than fair. Please private message me so I can pass her information on to you or yours on to her.
Location: Copperas Cove, Texas/Austin, Texas.

2023.05.28 18:41 Wallcorners_wall_art HOW HIGH SHOULD I HANG WALL ART ON THE LIVING ROOM WALL?


Wall Art – When determining how high to hang wall art, consider a few key guidelines. Generally, the center of the artwork should be positioned at eye level, which is typically around 57 to 60 inches from the floor.
The correct height to hang wall art is eye level.

2023.05.28 18:41 JoshVanamees CK3 - I don't think I'll ever understand. Please help me quit this game. I think I am dumb?

Okay, so I am 75 hours into CK3. Hours of tutorials watched during my workday. Have started fresh about 20 million times. Every time I progress a little further, something bad comes through and rips the table cloth out from underneath me while trying to enjoy a succulent meal. It's not enjoyable, I paid for that steak.
*Sucks on Dorito fingers*
Started as sexy Sweden in 867's with the goal of creating the Scandinavian Empire. My tactic is to pop out 1 child like a speedy watermelon and then remarry to an old, dusty, grumpy infertile character so that my titles go to my one true heir (Even though this doesn't always work for some reason) . RISKY BUISNESS but helps with tribal government limitations because ya know, let's make the game as annoying (realistic) as possible!
Rough Timeline: Please note, Vassals were all green and happy multiple times at Empire point. - Go through blood, sweat and pumpkin soup to Capture all Duchies and Kingdoms required to create Scandinavian Empire. (Didn't create Kingdom Titles until after Empire creation)
- Create Empire, instantly someone complains about my leadership due to Culture or Faith and I accidentally fat finger the keyboard and give them their independence instead of fighting. I saw the same prompt later, which enabled war instead. I lost half the Empire due to this fat fingering.
- Suck it up and go through and recapture over half of the Empire again that I lost due to miss click.
- Finally recapture it all again, character dies and I get left with a terrible heir that should have been disposed of but push on.
- My terrible heirs child is going to be a Spartan Superstar Woman so I work towards having her as a new main, capturing the last bits of land in the Empire and then holding tight in that space, like a kid in a fenced in play area. Then making sure Vassals are happy and with a place on the council, fucking losers.
- My new heir comes in to power and takes a seat on the porcelain throne, BOOM! Vassals rise up again. So many I can't see their player cards on the war screen. As a new young leader, I don't have the strength perks to fight them. While this is going on, I had married an infertile male partner but apparently he went and had the tied tubes procedure reversed because my heir was still popping out babies. Realising I wouldn't win the war and would lose so much AGAIN, a tear ran down my face. My character dies during a battle which is great because the war ends but I didn't expect it. Oh but wait, she had slopped out another speedy watermelon son during that time which I didn't get time to murder, so I my Empire gets split in half AGAIN!
At this point, I let the game run to see what would happen. Cultural uprisings. Faith Uprisings. Shit was going sideways so fast but not as fast as I hit the "quit to desktop" button.
I worked so hard to get Adopt Feudal ways. People of different cultures wouldn't accept my character as a sexy Swedish person, Should I be running any council schemes to help this? I have no idea how to make everyone happy on that scale? Should I only have 5 vassals with lots of titles or 15 little bitches with a couple of titles each? I love the game, but I am just so tired of putting in so much time and energy to have everything just crumble so easily because I am a loser and don't read everything properly. I want to sit on my throne, make people happy, win defence wars and upgrade to mighty castles.
It looks like holding the Empire title is near impossible or really hard? I had 7 counties held the whole time inside 2 Duchies that were fully upgraded within the start game tech. At one point I had a nearly 20k army, but the character dies and you just end up with your trash kid that you should have murdered who has no perk points or anything really going for it. I wish there was more control over your heir while still playing as the parent, so you could model it how you wanted it to grow up.
I reformed the Old Asatru Faith to Asatru but for some reason my counties still had the old religion but my vassals had the new? What am I supposed to do once it's reformed? Nearly all vassals converted but then all of a sudden they rise up against me because their breakfast cereal has a little too much milk in it? - How many Counties or titles maximum should each vassal have? One guy had 14 at one point but it's that or have a bunch of babies crying about council positions. - Is there a way to tell who doesn't need a council position before you grant them titles? I can't find that anywhere. - Is there any advice for culture or faith conversion? What should I be doing with it? How can I make all the little people happy underneath me so that I can rule my kingdom, fight off invaders and live with my cat? - I want to try again, so badly, but I am scared. Shivering. I usually go down the war path and quickly get the perks that make Champions strong and plenty. I don't understand any of the other game mechanics well enough to use them to my advantage. Should I kill vassals? Then how do I have high enough intrigue as well as fighting power?
Anyway, I hated my Sunday. Might eat some bad food because I feel sorry for myself. :D

2023.05.28 18:41 podcastbaby AITA for reaching out to my ex's family to help rekindle our young, growing relationship

I (20 female) and my ex boyfriend (20 male) were together for nearly 4 years. We went through many hardships as you could assume. We have been very on and off the past 6 months due to our own immaturity and insecurities. Our last break up was two weeks ago and I have been continuing to text him. In the two weeks apart I have noticed so many things that I did in the relationship that could have completely changed the course of our relationship. I have many insecurities which make me overreact to small and unimportant details. I want to get back together and show him that we can both mature, grow, and learn together, granted that we are SO young.
Since we broke up, I had been texting him constantly about the mistakes I realized in myself and how we can truly work it out now that I figured out the problems in myself. I text him old videos of us, paragraphs telling him how much I love and care for him, and I even wrote him a hand written letter and bought a huge basket filled with his favorite snacks which I left in his bedroom in his mom's apartment (she gave me permission to drop it off). After making no progress with my ex, I reached out to his family. His family absolutely adores me. We have gotten so close and I know that if anyone could help, it would be them. I reached out to his mom, dad, sister, aunt, and uncle for advice and some help into convincing him that this can be fixed. His family assured me that he will come around and that he loves me unconditionally. They have been telling my ex their own experience in their own relationships. His mom and sister were once in the same position as me and tried to tell him that it gets better and I am learning. He wants nothing to do with me anymore.
His family has been pressuring him to trust the process and give me another chance because they know I have good intentions. I had been talking to his mom and we both came to the conclusion that sense he completely stopped responding to all my messages and is ignoring anything I say without giving me any answers in return, that I had nothing left to lose. She gave me permission to go to her apartment, where my ex was staying, and go talk to him in person sense he refused to see me or talk to me on his own terms. I thought it might help but he got very, very angry and drove away. Before leaving, he called me crazy, psycho, and toxic. I was just trying to fight for him and show him how dedicated I am to fixing this. He texted his entire family in a group chat saying "I do not want[my name]. Get that through your heads." He is now refusing to talk to his family or I. It is making us all worry because he normally keeps all his emotions inside and does not know how to vent.
I really was just trying to help and make things better but in return, it just got worse. His family has insisted on not giving up and continuing to remind him that I am the best he will ever get. I have helped him through so much and I, and his family, agree that he at least owes me an in person conversation, answers, and explanations for his actions. Am I the asshole for reaching out for his family for help?

2023.05.28 18:41 WarrenHarding Why was/is it considered so difficult to explain how we have a notion of “perfection”

I haven’t read many different philosophers but I have read Plato and Descartes and this seems to be a common thread between the two of them. Both philosophers seemed to have a real need to account for the fact that we can believe in a perfect ideal of something if nothing in the physical world is perfect. For Plato, he ended up adopting the theory of recollection as an attachment to his forms, explaining that we know about perfect ideas because we’ve previously seen them before our lives started. For Descartes, this need to explain how we have a relationship to perfection despite our flaws culminated in being one of his major explanation for God’s proof — that is, God is the more perfect thing that we necessarily get any sort of perfection from, if it’s true we have any relative proximity to perfection at all.
To me, I feel like I might be making an assumption I don’t realize I’m making, because to conceive of perfection in our presently obvious circumstances isn’t that difficult to me. It feels like as long as we have a easy enough connection to what is “good,” we can simply perceive perfection as what is “good in every way.” One might then argue that to even perceive any such idea of good at all, let alone perfection, also necessitates the existence of recollection or of God all the same. However this doesn’t seem to hold, because although nothing in this world is perfect (i.e. lives solely in the ideal realm), there are many things in the world which are simply just good, i.e. the property of goodness empirically screams out to us like any other property. Who is to say that the form, or god, doesn’t culminate from our perceptions and essentially become our notion of that perception “being such in every way” … in other words what really is the metaphysical difficulty of seeing something occur in a limited capacity and imagining if it were to occur at full capacity?

2023.05.28 18:41 Legal_Telephone_4163 First Date with a girl with BPD

I(M19) went on a date with this girl(25). It was really good. We clicked. At some point I asked her "So, since this is the first date, what are you looking for?" And she told me "Oh, whatever it may come" and yeah, it was cool. Then, like 10 minutes later she told me "So, I have to tell you a thing... I have bpd" and I said that I was happy she felt comfortable enough to tell me and I do not have anything against them. Both things are true.
She told me she takes some meds and that it causes her some problems. Not too much, but they are still there. I was also honest and I told her I was not informed.
I have some questions:
How can I be able to tell if she's just in love/ finds me cute and not love bomb? Ive never been in a relationship, so it is already hard. Are there some typical bpd traits when love bombing?
Is a healthy relationship possible?
Should I ask her more? What should I ask her? The question "How bad is your bpd?" sounds stupid to me, and I also want to give her time. She isn't her diagnosis.
Should I give her time? See the previoud question. If I am wrong, please correct me
If you have lectures, general advice or stuff, pls send. I am trying not to look up too many things bc google is not a safe source of information.
I do not want to hurt her.
Sorry for the long post. Thank you.
Sorry if the flair is wrong

I almost got run over today while walking across the 4 way stop sign by the Evergreen area. What’s up with this clueless drivers who don’t know how to drive in broad daylight?
This is my 2nd close call in last 2-3 weeks. It’s always the same type drivers, the ones who sit 2 inches away from the steering wheel holding it tightly with both hands. How the fuck these retards get DL in first place? Stop risking other people’s lives if you don’t have spatial awareness.

2023.05.28 18:40 ufda23354 My filament keeps getting clogged but I don't know where or why

I've been trying to do some bigger prints with the ender 3E and I usually only get so far before something clogs and filament stops coming out of the nozzle. I've cleaned and just straight up changed my nozzle many times and it will do this with a brand new nozzle. I have made sure the extruder is set to the right tension and is pushing filament properly, and there are no kinks or any harsh turns in the Bowden tube. I have never taken the hot end apart so I don't see how I could have messed up the feeding through there. any other places i should look? also i usually fix this by unloading and reloading the filament and can get it to work for a little but but will always eventually get stuck somewhere again

2023.05.28 18:40 Orange_Storage199 If you want to make it in life, do not do what I did.

Many years ago, it was just one of those casual math tests. And you know how they went, usually. I was confident about leaving that room with an A+. Tomorrow rolls around, and what do I have on my paper? An F+.I was furious. I put almost the whole well-earned weekend studying for it, and I failed! I felt awful, like I was a failure. Like I was dillusional for even trying. And, well, I soon came to realize I was delusional. Since that very moment, I've learned that I was a failure and nobody genuinely loves me. But that day, I realized something far worse. My teacher was a liar! I got 75% of those questions right, which constitutes as a C+!! I was supposed to get a C, but instead I got an F. This is where my distrust in humans began. I've never trusted any school-employee-whatever-the-hell, especially not school counselors. All they do is snitch. You tell them what's been going on, and soon enough, you got yourself snitched on. And it's not just the school board, either. It's Everyone. Now everyone knows. That's why you don't trust school counselors. Or teachers in general. Because they'll tell the school board about everything about you that they know. I also went into two different spirals. One of self-hatred, and one of trying and failing, forever and ever. So here's what you do. Don't be cynical like me. Don't worry if you get an F, your failures don't define you. And when you fail, you will come back 10 times stronger and better. And don't worry if you get a C, it means that the work is, "satisfying academic standards". And when you become a grouchy, bitter person like me, no matter how far down the road you go, you can still make a U-turn.

SW 260 CW 218.8 GW 160
I am 14 weeks in and can't believe some days how much my life has changed. I feel like a completely different person when it comes to my relationship with food.
To answer the hot topic questions: I haven't experienced many negative side effects. The worst has been joint pain but I started adding electrolytes to my water and pain went away.
I eat low calorie/high protein. I try to be active but not following a strict routine.
I inject mid morning, rotating thighs and stomach.
I still get hungry. I'm full dose. I still need to use self control and practice moderation. For those who think it's a silver bullet, no effort required, you're mistaken. For me, it is still a lot of work and dedication. However that sabotaging part of me - that part is blocked by the meds - if that makes sense? Like I lost my addictive personality overnight.
Wishing you all the best on your journeys!

2023.05.28 18:40 Metropolis19 Sezane the brand and materials

Hi! I am switching from Reformation to Sezane (assuming the quality is as good as it looks). But my concerns are the materials.
Please could any of the sezane girlies share with me how you feel about their quality and materials?
My concern is although I noticed certifications , I also noticed many of the materials are not natural at all or there is just small %, as It’s always mixed with something,…. And concerns with non-natural materials is of course : allergies from chemical dyes or other add-ons, planet, and longevity aka I want to spend $200-400 for dress with non-premium materials? No.
I appreciate your feedbacks 💗

2023.05.28 18:40 TempleBarIsOverrated "Don't rewrite systems, you should improve it incrementally". How well does that hold up in a microsystem architecture?

For the past year I've been working as the most senior dev in a team where the 3 products are split over 50-60 repositories and around 100 azure functions in a microservice-like fashion, but it is more of a distributed monolith where each function looks into a database that's not theirs, sends messages to other azure functions, and is basically a big mess (.NET Framework 4.5, Azure Functions v1, no unit / integration / system tests, no CI/CD, angularjs, no QA environment).
I've resisted making too many changes so far, rather trying to learn the system and understand why it's been designed and developed like that. After a year it's becoming clear that nobody on the team knows why exactly things are the way they are and they'd all rather see improvements being made.
The problem I'm having is I'm not too sure how incremental the improvements should be. Like I know that rewriting the entire frontend from angularjs to react is too big, but I don't want to keep on doing what I've been doing so far which is to do code reviews and pair programming as it's showing little to no improvements. I can expand upon that if need be, but at the moment it's very tough to implement a CI/CD system with code quality checks.
The team is afraid of changing anything about the infrastructure as it's all too intertwined and dependent on each other so they much rather prefer to not touch anything (it's been 5 years since they removed / added a component of the system), and focus on keeping things running while complaining about how difficult everything is.
I'd like to start cutting away some parts of the old system and replace it with more modern and well-designed parts, but I'm not sure on how big those parts should be.
Do you split by functionality? E.g. the data ingestion part of a subsystem? Or rather by logical boundaries, i.e. the entire subsystem (ingesting and making available the data via an API)? Or by logistical boundaries such as a repository?

2023.05.28 18:39 tapiocaGT H1B amendment needed when working abroad?

My job is planning to send me abroad for 3 months and wondering if they would need to file an H1B amendment. I will have the same duties but in different location for only 3 months, then I will return to my current place. I can only find information when the move is within the US.
To make things more complicated, they will also need to file an H1B extension since my current H1b expires while been there (I will also need to apply for a visa as a TCN when I'm there). If the amendment is required, how many? Is it 3: one to amend my current H1B (to amend the last month), and then 2 LCAs for the H1B extension: 1 for the 2 months-left when I'm abroad, and 1 for the remaining H1B in the US?

2023.05.28 18:39 NoGimmiesNL The Collapse of Michael Block

Your stance on Michael Block might be the most controversial topic in golf right now. Some people love him, others despise him, he’s a feel good story in some eyes, and an arrogant old head pro in many others. Despite your opinion, he is unanimously a great golfer, just not great enough to hang with the best in the world a second time. This just shows how well conditioned these pros are both physically and mentally, they’re on another level. They’re consistently in headlines, accustomed to the pressures of golf media, but more importantly they are constantly prepping and playing in huge events. Block hasn’t felt that pressure, he hasn’t had to play with the world on his shoulders, he doesn’t have the mental fortitude of a PGA pro. This all equated to him finishing dead last at 15 over par prior to the weekend, and considering the leader after two days was 12 under par, he wasn’t on the same planet as the rest of the field. Despite the missed cut, and several news media outlets attacking his character, he stayed at the course for 3 hours post round to sign items for the kids. Sure he has made some snobby comments, but overall this story has been good for golf. It has brought tons of eyeballs to the sport, and created a narrative for non-golf people to follow. Luckily, Block will be teeing it up at the RBC Canadian Open from Jun 8-11, so this story doesn’t end here, stay tuned.

I hung my wall decor too high 🫠
I swear I measure stuff but it still turns out kind of messed up 😂. I wanted to hang these so I can easily add more playbills later on like add a third row etc hence the first row is where it is. I like the spacing between the frames and between the rows. Just think the first row is a little high.
Do you think I should:
A) put the first row below the second row (so second row will now be first row). And then when I get additional playbills I can put it where the first row is now (probs slightly lower) or
B) shift the rows down by x inches (if this, how many inches?) or
C) also open to other suggestions on arranging these!
TIA! 🙂

2023.05.28 18:38 miseroisin my friend is exhausting me

I've been friends with her for a long time, I dont know whether I'm overreacting but I've been finding it difficult to talk to her lately. She's incredibly insecure, and needs constant validation. No matter how much she get though, she won't believe it and can get upset.
Couple recent incidents, there's more - when I went to go visit college friends she sent me a message saying it was suspicious I didn't tell her and asked whether I preferred my college friends or my hometown friends -we organised a trip to the city for a day, but one girl had to pull out as she couldn't afford it. Friend went nuts, accused her of not wanting to hang out anymore, told her she was "taking advantage of her kindness" and that she had let the whole group down. The girl who had to cancel was in tears by the end of it. - she bought up that I talk a lot about my job with another friend when shes there and felt excluded from the conversation. I said I saw her point and will watch out for it in future. She then told me "but I guess it's okay if you want to keep talking about it, I know you prefer friend X over me because I'm not a likeable person". I then had to spend the rest of the night validating her
None of this is meaness on her part, I know it comes from a place of deep insecurity. I just don't know if I have the energy for it anymore. We are 24 years old for God's sake, I feel like this is playground stuff. We've tried to bring it up with her before but she gets very upset and won't hear it, accusing us of hating her.
I dont know what the best thing to do is. This has been going on years and I'm really feeling disillusioned with the friendship. But if I go, she has no one, shes lost so many friends over the years. Or am I being way too mean and overreacting

2023.05.28 18:38 Pavke How does Magic Find actually work? An Advanced Guide to Magic Find Formula

Warning: This will be a long nerdy post with a lengthy explanation of Magic Find mechanics, including math and graphs. (18 graphs, 4280 words, 20342 characters).
If you don’t want to read this wall of text, you can Ctrl+F and search for TLDR

Frequently, people inquire about the optimal amount of Magic Find. The typical response is that more Magic Find is generally better, but there are diminishing returns. Often, an EffectiveMF graph is referenced to illustrate this point. For example, one of such posts from a month ago.
However, relying solely on EffectiveMF graphs and diminishing returns can be highly misleading! Effective Magic Find is just one small component of the overall Magic Find formula! The Complete Magic Find formula takes several values from the game into the account when calculating your chances to get Unique / Set / Rare / Magic items. The final results are intricate and influenced by various factors. it is not as simple as this graph:
Why is this graph misleading? What does it actually tell us? Effective Magic Find grows Logarithmically, it has diminishing returns! Great! So, what does that mean? How does Magic Find and EffectiveMF actually affect our chances to get Unique, Set, Rare items? How many rare items do we get with 100 MF vs 500 MF? EffectiveMF for blue Magic Items grows linearly. Great, but what does that mean? How many more Magic items do we get?? Is there a limit to MF? This graph doesn’t tell us much unless you are very knowledgeable about the Magic Find process!
To answer all these questions, I have developed my own Drop Calculator with some advanced functions that showcase the actual distribution of items based on player Magic Find stat. My Drop Calculator takes into account all possible variables of the Magic Find function and displays the results in nice Graph form. Before showing the Item distribution graphs, I will first try to explain the complete MF Formula.

Selecting the Base Item

Selecting the Base Item is the initial step before the game applies the Magic Find formula to determine the magic quality of the item (Unique, Set, Rare, Magic). Examples of Base Items are: Diadem, Shako, Short Sword, Long Staff, Mage Plate, Sacred Armor etc..
Magic Find has no effect on Base Item selection! The Base Item is decided through Treasure Class selection and random roll mechanism. It is a fairly complex topic and deserves a post on its own. I won't go to much into details since Treasure Class selection is not the main focus of this post, but in short:
Each monster in the game from Act Bosses through Elite Packs to white trash monsters is assigned a “Treasure Class”. A Treasure Class is essentially a group or collection of items that can drop from that particular monster. There are many different TCs in the game typically comprising combinations of Item Drops (Base Items), Gold Drops, Junk Drops, Rune/Jewelry/Charm Drops, and NoDrop (indicating that no item will drop).
With random rolls, the game determines the type of item that the monster will drop, be it equipment, potion, rune, gold, etc. Once the item type is established, the game then checks if the item can be upgraded to Unique, Set, or other rarities. For the purposes of further discussion about Magic Find formula, we will assume that the game has selected an equipable item (Base Item, be it a Weapon or Armor). So what happens next? How does the game decide which quality to drop?

Selecting the Item Quality

Now that the game has the Base Item (Diadem, Shako, Mage Plate, etc.), two functions are called one after another to give the Base Item a specific quality. (There is some other stuff in between these two functions but this is the gist of it). Functions are pseudonym named: RollMagicQuality and MakeItemUnique (or MakeItemSet, MakeItemRare etc. depending on the roll from RollMagicQuality function). RollMagicQuality function is the main function that determines if the items will be a Unique, Set, Rare, Magic item. But let's first talk about MakeItemUnique:
MakeItemUnique (or Set, or Rare, or Magic) function confirms the roll from RollMagicQuality and double checks if the selected Base Item can drop as a Unique item. This is where you get those “Failed Uniques” as triple durability Rare item drops.
The MakeItemUnique function also determines which Unique item will drop if there are more Unique items for the selected Base Item. It adds up the Rarity value from the UniqueItems.txt file and rolls a random number to pick a Unique item. Examples are Tyrael’s or Templars Armor for Sacred Armor, The Cranium Basher or Earth Shifter for Thunder Maul, Azurewrath or Lightsabre for Phase Blade, etc.. Selection is fully random and can not be influenced by the Player.
There are 3 ways that Unique Item can fail to pass the MakeItemUnique check:
  1. A Unique item will fail to roll if the Quality Level (qlvl) is higher than Item Level (ilvl). Quality Level refers to Level value from UniqueItems.txt file and its fixed. Each Unique item has a predetermined fixed Quality Level. Item Level is a different stat, basically ilvl is a level of the monster that dropped the item. When ilvl is lower than qlvl, a Unique item will fail to drop! Example of this is: Arachnid Mesh can not drop from Pindleskin! Qlvl of Arachnid Mesh is 87, Pindleskin is a level 86 monster that drops items with ilvl 86. Since qlvl of Arachnid Mesh is 87 and always higher than ilvl of Pindle items, Base Item Spiderweb Sash will never be a Unique item.
  2. A Unique item will fail to roll if Base Item has no Unique version. The Item can pass a Unique check of RollMagicQuality function, but MakeItemUnique is the one that actually makes the item Unique. If there is no Unique version of the selected Base Item, the Base Item will fail this roll. Examples of this would be the Unique Archon Plate. There is no Unique Archon Plate, so every time the Base Item AP drops and passes the RollMagicQuality check for Unique item, it will drop as a Rare item with triple durability.
  3. A Unique item will fail to roll if the same Unique item has already dropped in the current game session. Everytime the MakeItemUnique function makes the Unique version for a selected Base Item, it logs the Unique drop in a special List of dropped Unique items. The function checks the List every time it tries to roll a Unique item. If the Unique item is already on the list, the selected Base Item will drop as a Rare item with triple durability.
Base Item needs to pass all 3 checks of this function for the item to successfully drop as a Unique Item! Same thing applies for MakeItemSet, only now the Failed Set Items drop as a Magic Items with double durability.
Before the MakeItemUnique function is called, the Base Item needs to pass the RollMagicQuality selection.

RollMagicQuality Function

RollMagicQuality is where the magic happens! (pun intended!). RollMagicQuality is the function that actually picks the quality of the Base Item, based on your "% Better Chance of Getting Magic Item" stat and other variables in the game. This function determines your Unique / Set / Rare / Magic / etc probability.
Based on your %MF and other variables, RollMagicQuality function will first try to roll for a Unique item. If that random roll is lower than a certain number, the Base Item will not be a Unique item and RollMagicQuality will try to roll for a Set item. If that fails, the function will try to roll for a Magic item and so on.
The order for selecting Item Quality is always: Unique > Set > Rare > Magic > Superior > Normal. This order will be very important later on. If the Base Item passes one of these checks, the RollMagicQuality function stops and the above-mentioned MakeItemUnique(or MakeItemSet, or MakeItemRare, etc) will be called.
Step by step walkthrough on how RollMagicQuality function actually works. After the explanation, I will use my Drop Calculator to showcase the drop rates of different quality items based on Player Magic Find.
Step 1) Chance = (BaseChance - floor((ilvl-qlvl)/Divisor))*128
This is the code of the Magic Find Formula. Game reads the required values from a few sources, the main one, and the most important is itemRatio.txt file. This file determines your drop rates of Unique, Set, Rare and Magic items more than your Magic Find stat!
itemRatio.txt and values within it are extremely important. The game utilizes different values depending on the Type of the Base Item. In other words: Class Specific items, Exceptional/Elite and Normal items have different chances to become Unique items. If we look at itemRation.txt we can see 6 rows:
From this, we can conclude that there are 3 types of different Base items: Normal Base Items, Exceptional/Elite Base Items, Class Specific Items. When the Base Item drops, the game checks item version values from weapons.txt and armor.txt and class specific values from itemTypes.txt. Based on those values, the game loads required BaseChance and Divisor values needed for the Magic Find formula and calculates your Chance: Chance = (BaseChance - floor((ilvl-qlvl)/Divisor))*128
Step 2) Chance= floor(100*Chance/(100+EffectiveMF))
After the first step, the game adjusts your chances with EffectiveMF. EffectiveMF is calculated with the formula: EffectiveMF=floor(Factor*(MF-100)/(Factor+MF-100)) Where
This is where that intial Graph comes from. It shows the EffectiveMF with diminishing returns. Here is the Graph again in more detail:
Here, we can see something interesting for the first time in this post. Graph is NOT continuous but has rather discrete jumps. This is the result of the game using integer division for its calculation. For example:
  1. You have 697% Better Chance of Magic Items on your gear. To calculate the EffectiveMF for Unique drops, you first add 100 to get Character Magic Find and then use this formula: floor(250*(797-100)/(250+797-100)) = 184% EffectiveMF for Unique items
  2. You get two more Small Charms with 7% mf and now you have 711% Better Chance of Magic Items on your gear. EffectiveMF for Unique items is now: floor(250*(811-100)/(250+811-100)) = 184% EffectiveMF for Unique items! Exactly the same!
Going from 697 MF on your gear to 711 MF on your gear did nothing to improve your chances of getting Unique items. There are “Break Points” for Magic Find!
So, the game calculates your EffectiveMF and uses that value to get your new Chance: Chance= floor(100*Chance/(100+EffectiveMF))
Step 3) Chance=max(Chance,minChance)
Where the minChance is the value from the "UniqueMin" column from itemRatio.txt. Game checks if you have reached the maximum Chance for selected rarity. There is an upper limit on how many Unique, Set, Rare, Magic items you can get even with millions and millions of Magic Find on Hero Edited items!
That limit is unreachable for Unique items with standard game gear. But it is easily accomplished for Set, Rare and Magic items. Effects of this upper limit will be seen later in the Graphs.
Step 4) FinalChance=Chance-floor(Chance*QualityFacto1024)
Game adjusts your chances once again based on the QualityFactor of the monster that dropped the Base Item. Higher the QualityFactor of the monster, the better chance you have of getting Unique, Set, Rare, Magic items from that monster. This QualityFactor has a huge influence on your overall chances.
QF of 1024 means that ALL dropped Base Items will roll that quality and QF of 600 means that 4.8% of dropped Base items will become the desired quality at best. Here is the table with all monsters that have specified QualityFactors:
You can see that Andariel has the highest QF of them all. That is because of “Quest Bug” that now became a feature in D2R. Act Bosses also have high QualityFactor. QF of 1024 for Magic items means all these monsters will always drop at least a Magic item and won't drop standard White items.
Final Step 5) random(FinalChance)<128 than: item is Unique
Game randomly rolls a number between 0 and your FinalChance. If that number is lower than 128 then the selected Base Item will become an Unique item and the above-mentioned MakeItemUnique function is called to double check if the selected Base Item can become an Unique.
If the randomly rolled number is higher than 128, selected Base Item fails and the game goes back to Step 1 and redos the process all over again for Set Item check. If that fails, the game redos the process for Rare Item check and so on. Again, the order for selecting Item Quality is always: Unique > Set > Rare > Magic > Superior > Normal.
Now that we know the process, let's look at one example: Let’s say you have 500 Magic Find on your gear, you just killed Hell Baal and the game dropped you a Diadem as a Base Item. What is the chance for that Diadem to be a Unique Diadem (Griffon’s Eye)? Lets go step by step while looking at itemRatio.txt file:
  1. Chance = (BaseChance - floor((ilvl-qlvl)/Divisor))*128. Diadem is an Elite Expansion item, so BaseChance will be 400 and Divisor will be 1. Qlvl of Diadem is 85 and ilvl is 99. Chance = (400 - floor((99-85)/1))*128 = 49408
  2. Chance= floor(100*Chance/(100+EffectiveMF)). To calculate EffectiveMF we use =floor(250*(600-100)/(250+600-100)) = 166 Now we can calculate the Chance= floor(100*49408/(100+166)) = 18574
  3. Chance=max(Chance,minChance) minChance for Elite Expansion items from itemRation.txt is 6400. Our number is higher so we use 18574
  4. FinalChance=Chance-floor(Chance*QualityFacto1024). The QualityFactor of Hell Baal is 983. So we now have: FinalChance=18574-floor(18574*983/1024) = 744
  5. random(FinalChance)<128. we randomly roll a number between 0 and 744 and compare it to 128. It's basically: 128/744 = 0.1720430108
Everytime you kill Hell Baal with 500 Magic Find on your gear and it drops a Diadem, you have a 17.204% chance for that Diadem to be a Griffon’s Eye. With 100 Magic Find on your gear you have 11.063% chance for that Diadem to be a Griffon’s Eye. Going from 100 MF to 500 MF will increase your Unique chance by 6.141%!

Graphs, Graphs, and more Graphs

Now that we know how to calculate our Unique chances, it's time for some Graph! Please keep in mind, these graphs do not show your chance to get a specific item. These graphs show your chance for the Base Item to become an Unique item based on your Magic Find on your gear!
Drop Calculator goes through the complete Treasure Class list for the selected monster, pulls all Base Items that can drop and their probabilities, goes through all necessaries files like treasureclassex.txt, itemRation.txt, weapons.txt, armor.txt, itemTypes.txt, uniqueItems.txt and gets all needed values we talked about and calculates the probabilities for each point of Magic Find and for more or less, each monster in the game… But let's start with something simple:
Chance for a Base Item to become an Unique item (Boss)
Above graph shows the chance for a Base Item to become an Unique item when killing the Act Boss (Duriel, Mephisto, Diablo, Baal). Nothing abnormal here. The more Magic Find you have on your gear the better chance you have for a Base Item to become an Unique item. With 300 MF you have a pretty high chance to get a Class Specific Unique item at 25%! Here are some key details:

Chance for a Base Item to become an Unique item (Unique monster)
Above graph shows the chance for a Base Item to become an Unique item when killing the Unique monster in Area level 85. (standard Pit run, CS run, AT run, WSK run), just for the reference point, Our chances are much lower than from killing an Act Boss. It is because the QualityFactor for Act Bosses is 983 while QF for Unique monsters is 800. (all other values are basically the same except qlvl-ilvl difference which does not affect drop rates that much).

Chance for a Base Item to become an Set item (Boss)
Above graph shows the chance for a Base Item to become a Set item when killing the Act Boss. Now things are starting to look interesting! Why does it look like this? Because you can reach the maximum chance for Set items easily with enough Magic Find! After reaching that limit, your chances won’t increase any further. In fact, your chances for Rare items start to drop off with more Magic Find! It is because the game always checks for Unique > Set > Rare etc in that order. So more Base Items will become Unique items before they can become Set items.
For Normal Items, it maxes out at 290 MF, for Class Specific items it maxes at 255 MF and for Exceptional/Elite items it maxes out at 520 MF. After those values, you will see less Set items.

Chance for a Base Item to become an Rare item (Boss)
Above graph shows the chance for a Base Item to become a Rare item when killing the Act Boss. Now things are starting to look really strange! You reach the maximum chance for Exceptional/Elite and Class Specific items early on; you never reach the maximum chance for Normal items. Your chances for Rare items start to drop off with more Magic Find! More Base Items can become Unique items and Set items (or Failed Set items) before they can become Rare items.

Chance for a Base Item to become an Rare item (Unique monster)
For reference, chances for the Base Item to become a Rare item from a Unique monster are more flat but they still have maximum values and very slowly drop off with more Magic Find.
Now that we know the chance distribution per Unique / Set / Rare, let's look at some graphs for Normal, Exceptional/Elite and Class Specific items per monster kill.
For this part, we can pick the Monster that we are interested in, we can pick an Item Type we are interested in and the quality level of the item (qlvl). If we look at the initial formula above, the quality level is used in the calculation for a Base Item upgrade. Qlvl only affects the drop chance a little, but I wanted to be accurate as much as I can:

Chance for a Exceptional and Elite items to upgrade to specified magic rarity (Boss)
Above graph shows the Chance distribution for all Exceptional/Elite Items that drop from Diablo. Something looks strange… After 420 Magic Find, NO Magic quality Exceptional/Elite Item will drop! But you are sure you saw some Magic items when you were farming Bosses, right? That is because the vast majority of Magic Exceptional/Elite items are Failed Set items! (when farming bosses). There are very few Set items compared to all Base Items. So when RollMagicQuality Function is successful for Set check and calls MakeItemSet, the MakeItemSet function can’t successfully make a Set item because there is no Set item for selected Base Item. Value of 71 for qlvl is used. It is a median level value of all Exceptional/Elite items that can drop from Diablo.
We can see chances for Unique Diadem (Griffon's Eye) is about 17.181% while chances for set Diadem is 46.292%. Ratio between the two is 2.69. If we go to any Online Drop Calculator, Maxroll Drop Calc for example, and we pick Baal (Baal because Diablo can't drop Diadems Base Items) and we compare the chances. We can see the chances for any Player count has same ratio as 2.69.

Chance for a Class Specific items to upgrade to specified magic rarity (Boss)
Above graph shows the Chance distribution for all Class Specific Items that drop from Diablo. Same thing is true for Class Specific drops. Vast majority of Magic quality Class Specific drops you see from Act Bosses are actually Failed Set items. Value of 43 for qlvl is used. It is a median level value of all Class Specific items that can drop from Diablo.

Chance for a Normal items to upgrade to specified magic rarity (Boss)
Above graph shows the Chance distribution for all Normal Items that drop from Diablo. Things look a little better for Normal Items. Magic quality items slowly drop off but never reach the bottom. It is because of Divisor value for Magic quality in itemRatio.txt file. Value of 28 for qlvl is used. It is a median level value of all Class Specific items that can drop from Diablo

Chance for a Exceptional and Elite items to upgrade to specified magic rarity (Unique monster)
Above graph shows the Chance distribution for all Exceptional/Elite Items that drop from standard Unique monsters from Level 85 Area. Just showcasing the upper limits of monsters that are farmed regularly. After 490 MF your chances for Unique items will continue to increase, but chances for every other quality will flatten out or start to decrease. Same goes for Class Specific items, while Normal items for Rare quality will continue to rise slowly.
Now, let's combine all Graphs per Item Type into one Graph that shows Base Item chance to upgrade for selected monster and its Treasure Class:
Based on selected settings; (what monster are we looking at, Player and Party Settings and if the monster is Terrorized or not), the Drop Calculator picks the corresponding Treasure Class for that monster. It calculates the probabilities for each single Base Item drop for that selected Monster. it checks what Type each Base Item is (is it Normal, Exceptional/Elite or Class Specific item) and calculates the cumulative upgrade Chance for each Unique / Set / Rare / Magic version based on Normal, Exceptional/Elite or Class Specific distribution…
For Diablo kills (for Act 5 (H) Equip A Treasure Class) Item distribution is:
If we apply what we have learned so far, we get a Final Graph that looks like this:

Final Chance Graph
Above graph shows the final Chance for Base Item upgrade. I would like to point out that the reason we are seeing Magic items here it’s because Normal Base Item drops make up 67.85% of all Diablo item drops. Normal Items like Clubs, Maces, Flails, Cap, Quilted Armor, Light Plate etc.
We know that not all Base Items have Unique and Set versions. If we apply that to our calculations and move every item that will always Fail the Unique check and Set check, we get the Final Item Distribution percentage per Magic Find with our gear:

Item distribution
Let's look at Andariel's final Chance for Base Item upgrade and Item Distribution percentage:

Final Chance Graph (Andariel)
Item distribution (Andariel)
Because Andariel is now “quest bugged” by default, her Quality Factor for Rare items is 1024. Which means, technically, no Magic item will drop from her. ALL Magic items from Andariel are Failed Set items.
Let's look at Unique Monsters final Chance for Base Item upgrade:
Final Chance Graph (Unique monster)
Chance for Unique upgrade flatlines rather quickly. It goes from 3.510% at 500 MF to 3.959% at 1000 MF. Chance for Set upgrade basically maxes out at 300 MF. Chance for Rare continues to rise slowly but it is because of Normal item types. Exceptional/Elite reaches max around 490 MF and Class Specific reaches max at 220 MF.


More Magic Find is always better for Unique items. But for everything else (Set, Rare, Magic items), more Magic Find can mean less! No matter your clear speed or players in the game!
If you want to maximize your chances for that elusive item you are looking for you need to have the optimal amount of Magic Find for that specific item
Just considering EffectiveMF graph is misleading because it doesn't show the true extent of diminishing returns of your Magic Find Gear.
If you have any questions or remarks, please let me know.

2023.05.28 18:38 Leaded_or_Unleaded Ammeter to Voltmeter Conversion: My Tips and Comments

I completed the ammeter to voltmeter conversion yesterday. Advice is spread across forums and videos but sparse on Reddit, so I will share my experience. The total ordeal took about 7 hours after spending several hours researching and making sure I had the right tools. 3 hours to remove the gauge cluster, 1 hour looking at wiring diagrams, and 3 hours for the conversion and reassembly.
Voltmeter: Sunpro CP7985 (use a small flat head screw driver to tediously fold back the black trim/bezel's lip that houses the gauge).
Critical tools that made the job easier: Dremel, step-drill bit, soldering iron, heat gun, wire stripper, circularounded hand file, a long philips-head screw driver.
Disconnect your battery! Also, I already rewired my alternator prior to this conversions, so I will not cover that in this write up.
Removing the gauges: Disconnect the speedometer cable from the speedo-junction box in the engine compartment. This will allow you to pull the speedo cable out from inside the cabin and give you more "play" in pulling the cluster Removing the screws and bolts to pull out the cluster is straight forward, but lowering the steering column helps drastically. There are two "hidden" screws that hold together the upper and lower plastic trim pieces around the column that need to be removed from under the steering column. When all screws/hardware are removed and the cluster is ready to be pulled out, gingerly start pulling out the cluster while disconnecting the electrical connectors from behind the dash. I found the primary, 11-pin circular connector to be the most difficult to remove and required time and patience. It's not bolted or held in by anything - it's just stubborn.
The dumbest/most frustrating part of removing the cluster is the sliding cable mechanism for the environment/heat controls. It's connected to the cluster by a single screw behind the controls and is conveniently placed in the most inconvenient location for a screw driver. Time and patience is all I can really recommend. This is a great time to replace the vacuum hoses for the heater controls if they are worn and cracked.
The Conversion: I only disassembled the ammeter side of the cluster, though many can/will use this opportunity to clean up the entire cluster. I disassembled the cluster until the metal backing plate was fully removed. Use the dremel or similar tool to file/sand down the 6 small metal tabs used to mount the ammeter, or else the voltmeter will sit too far "forward" for the front gauge plate to mount. Use the step-drill bit to drill two 5/16" holes approx. 3/8" below the centerline of the ammeter holes. It's okay if the holes are a bit large - you do not want the threaded studs of the voltmeter to contact the metal backing plate or the reading will be incorrect. Use the circular hand file to file down the ammeter holes in the cardboard circuit board to accommodate the voltmeter. I performed numerous fit checks as I filed down the circuit board and ultimately used the cardboard as the piece to determine the voltmeter's mount location. I liked the hand file over the step-bit for this procedure to greatly minimize the risk of destroying the circuit board connection below the ammeter holes.
Wiring: In the 11-pin circular connector, pin "E" is ignition (for 1978s). I spliced into the ignition wire as my positive voltage source. It's critical to monitor the voltage off the ignition - a voltmeter will monitor volts/draw current constantly if wired directly to the battery and slowly drain your battery overtime. For ground, I spliced into the ground wire coming off the connector off the backside of the oil pressure gauge. Tom 'Oljeep' Collin's webpage was a godsend,
As for the two red and yellow 10-ga wires coming off the ammeter, when I rewired my alternator, I left the red wire hot (connected to the positive starter solenoid terminal but not running an alternator current) and disconnected the yellow wire entirely. Behind the gauge cluster, I used electrical tape and heat shrink to "seal" the connectors used to the attach to the ammeter. The red wire is a hot wire for many components under the dash, so it must be connected to a 12v source. I left the yellow wire under the dash - if needed, I can use it as another hot wire for accessories.
Reassembly: Reverse the disassembly procedure. Again, the heater control wire is the most frustrating part because a screw driver cannot easily reach the screw location. I also used the opportunity with the dash removed to reorient some of the wires to make cluster install/removal easier in the future. Reconnect the speedo cable to the junction box in the engine compartment
I hope this helps. I didn't find this information on Reddit, so I wanted to share my experience. This procedure may vary depending how you rewire your alternator. Some splice the 10-ga red and yellow wires together to maintain the circuit. I rewired my alternator so it goes directly to the battery and no longer sends a charging current through the firewall, so I left the two red and yellow wires disconnected behind the cluster.

2023.05.28 18:38 Such_Combination7253 Hogwarts Legacy: The Truth

Okay so, never usually compelled to come to Reddit for game reviews but here we are. I’ve seen quite a lot of people giving their thoughts on hogwarts legacy and wanted to see if anyone else felt the same way as I do.
The game is great, enjoy playing it, although intermittently.
I have a great time playing it, the world is beautiful and there’s lots to do, I can’t fault that.
However, I feel for what I wanted, it was way more closed off than I was expecting. I’m hoping they are planning on a second game, this time I really hope our character isn’t in hogwarts but is instead an adult and gives us access to the whole world with limited missions and more random dialogue, giving us much more choice on our morality etc, much like RDR2.
Again, no bashing the game, it’s great for what it is but it doesn’t feel like a true RPG to me, still feels very boxed off with limitation to what you can do. I really wanna become a true dark wizard and have certain aspects of the game based on how many times you’ve cast the unforgivable and see consequences for killing NPCS, Rockstar can do it and have done it for years so there’s no reason why we can’t expect it.
All in all the game gets a solid 8/10 for me, it’s a great game but it could be a lot better if it was an online based RPG with much more decision making, unique dialogue and story and much more customisation of your personality as a wizard.

On the Uberdrivers subreddit people are posting some criminal pays for long rides, many are reporting seeing their earnings tank for rides that used to pay way more. How is that compared to lyft? Is that not a problem on this app or is that a trend that can be seen in all rideshare apps? Drivers who do both please explain
