I'm buying a new PSU and looking them up I found that many of the budget ones I'm considering are said to be "bad". I'm looking for a 700~W PSU to pair with a RX 7600. Any anons here have experience with these "E tier" PSUs? Are they really that much of a disaster? I'm not sure about the legitimacy of these lists.

No. 1963948

you don't have to get the platinum-rated ultra premium Corsair ones that redditors like to shill but you really, really don't want to cheap out on your PSU. there's a fire hazard risk (that's a bit overstated imo) but more importantly it can easily fry your PC. My first power supply was the cheapest possible from some noname brand, worked ok for a while but then a random power surge made it smoke a bit and my motherboard was fried. Never had that happen with the EVGA one I use now

“Known to the police” in NSW & Queensland, which seems to always be the case. While I appreciate we believe in rehabilitation and don’t arrest people and throw away the key, lately I’ve felt more fearful than ever due to what I perceive to be an increase in random attacks by men, of course.
I’d argue that it’s a higher percentage, Nona.

Peter Pan was written by an actual pedophile who envisioned a fantasy world where boys never grow old and are in eternal adventure and the only female characters are either little girls acting like maternal figures or vile, vindictive temptresses like Tinker Bell and sadly this wasn't just a fantasy for the creator, after family friend's passed away he forged a will to get custody of their son's and all of the boys ended up killing themselves later in life, and the story has remained relatively popular with pedophiles and "MAPs" for a long period now.

That would be the best thing because rent caps is so desperately needed right now. We dont have a shortage on housing. We have a shortage on affordable homes right now, because so many pieces of shits are hiking the rent, or buying homes to use for Air bnbs. There's no reason anyone should be homeless if they have a job. You should be able to work 40 hours a week and afford a home, food, etc.

One important factor that people often overlook is that the current nations with the highest birth rates also have the greatest potential for food insecurity. For instance half of the world's food insecure population resides in India which relies heavily on fertilizer imports, as well 30+ countries in Africa depend on food aid. Africa as a whole struggles to feed itself and is a significant importer of food. If the global order were to collapse, who knows what could happen.

>seems more like the tories are going to get btfo epic style, and there will be one thousand years of new labour darkness
I think it's more likely to be a hung parliament. All the polls say that Labour is ahead but none of this is playing out in the reality of by-elections and council elections. Look what happened in the Rochdale by-election. Polls are usually inaccurate because people won't admit to voting Tory even when they do and Labour support is concentrated in urban constituencies, which means that more Labour voters doesn't equal more Labour MPs. Both Keir Starmer and Rishi Sunak are hated equally.

No. 1943537

Do you think that Starmer is going to stop asslicking trannies as the election gets closer? He's backed down from the self ID bullshit and there's been more pushback against troons.

No. 1958986

i just want to vent about this. as we know, search engine usefulness has rapidly degraded, but for snooping purposes they're almost completely useless now. ten years ago you could find so much simply by searching some variation of a username on google. now there are ZERO results. even visible follower/friend activity on instagram and facebook was incredibly helpful for women trying to prove their moid partner's infidelity. a recent blow is you can no longer search for a deleted user's messages on discord. the search functions on everything have gone to shit. i can't even view full follower lists on instagram anymore. normies have become way too clued in on internet privacy. they want everything to be tied to your real identity too. luckily i made all of my burner accounts a long time ago.
i do have a tactic that's still very easy though. one time i was in my college library and a guy sitting very close to me was talking to a friend about women in an extremely demeaning way, and that he was cheating on his girlfriend. i opened tinder while i was there so that my location would ping, and soon after, he appeared. i found out his name, all of his social media, his family, and even his girlfriend. i have used this tactic for multiple men i've encountered irl.

I'm not a PhD but am a skilled immigrant and know numerous people who did this. How easy it is to stay depends on your target country (e.g. you're basically guaranteed to be able to stay in Germany or Canada, while in the UK or Switzerland the bar is higher). Oftentimes student visas come with a year or two of sponsorship-free employment, but finding an industry sponsor in general is extremely difficult unless you're targeting a career in tech, pharma, engineering/manufacturing, or finance (particularly quant at HFT firms). Most employers are reluctant to gamble on new grads even without sponsorship as a consideration, so if you planned on going the industry route, you'd have to focus on making yourself as attractive a candidate as possible while studying (e.g. internships, research on an emerging hot topic in your field of choice).
Most worthwhile countries do have a path to permanent residency particularly for academics that's actually much easier than it is for industry workers, but I'm not sure how/if postdoc roles factor into that, and academia is a pyramid scheme, so banking on tenure track is a bad idea unless you're entering one of the global top programs in your field.
If you're planning on studying in a field where there isn't industry demand for PhDs and you aren't a nepobaby, your most realistic options for staying are marriage, becoming a teacher (there's enormous demand in english-speaking countries right now and a PhD would look attractive to international schools), targeting a country with a PR track that doesn't require sponsorship, or finding a stupid cheat code visa like DAFT.
Sorry if you're already studying and this is all totally irrelevant to you.

I have this non-issue now could-be-a-huge-issue later dilemma with my job too. Can't say for sure but the longevity doesn't pan out from where I'm standing. I have a nice salary and wfh setup as a data annotator but I give it 5 years max before I work my way to redundancy and get the boot because the thing that needed me to correct it gets good enough to the point that it doesn't need correcting anymore and I'm made redundant.And that's already being generous, I could see it happening in 2-3 years or less. I don't currently see my way out either but I need to figure it out soon.
