2022.01.29 07:49 spectacalur A tale from the Wild West days of run escape
Four score and seven years ago, I was an enthusiastic but unsuccessful RuneScape gold panner. Countless hours were spent at the coal deposits of the Falador Dwarven mines whilst skipping school. I had to venture a little deeper into the mines to avoid the very real threat of the King Scorpions. Even during school hours, competition amongst myself and my the other school-skippers was often fierce. Sometimes you could strike up a bargain with your fellow prospector, but other times you just had to fight it out. Full concentration was required lest you return to find your pick head had flown off and been claimed by a peer, who would return it to you for a price, or worse, despawned. Death by random event was also not uncommon, and we’d think nothing of looting each other. I can still recall the bloodthirsty excitement that would follow a player running for his life with a green damage splat appearing above his head. Within an instant, every player in the vicinity would give chase like a pack of hyenas, willing him to die before he could reach a bank. We empathised with these players of course, and it wasn’t hard to imagine the panic they were feeling in that moment, but frankly our lust for gold overpowered any sense of fellowship.
The long walk back to Falador West Bank with a hard-fought inventory of coal was a long one, but was made longer due to the fact that we all wore our best gear wherever we went. This could be a source of great pride, or tremendous embarrassment. Much later I would wear a Dragon skirt, because I was unable to afford the 2 million gold for platelegs, under the pretence that it was a fashion choice (its a kilt). Naturally, no one believed this and I was the subject of great mockery and hilarity for all the lobster pot fishermen of Catherby. I had the last laugh, however, as I’d one day return in an elegant outfit and a black cav, which had the effect of saying, “Yes, I am a RuneScape millionaire.”
Back in my gold panning days I made a female friend, whom I suspect was one of the few actual female players, whose dream was to explore the lands of Gielenor in a full set of Black (g). Sadly, for us noob class players, a dream was all it was, and all it would likely remain. After all, how could we feather collecting, cowhide peddling prey for the scorpions ever afford an armour set like that? Now and then I would inform my female friend, whose name has now been lost to history, that I had a gift for her. Once I gave her an elemental shield I got from a bank sale. Whether or not she actually liked it, I do not know, but she did wear it whenever we did something together, and that made me feel nice.
One day whilst exploring the great uncharted plains of RuneScape, I stumbled into the Seers’ Village flax field and was surprised to find that I’d picked something up as I walked through. I decided to pick up a full inventory of it whilst I was there, and continued on my way. A short while later I found myself in a busy Seers’ Village bank and thought, “What the heck”, so I typed out, “selling flax”. Someone offered to trade me, and I nervously accepted. I put up my flax and waited to see how much he would offer. Beat. He offered 2,800gp. I quickly accepted, so did he, and the deal was done. My hands began to shake. Surely this couldn’t be? I picked another full inventory of flax and sold it once again for 2,800gp. Immediately, I Pm’d my female friend and asked her the all important question…”have u unlocked the tele to camelot”. “no.”
And so, I made my way back over White Wolf Mountain, which felt like Caradhras to me, collected my female friend, and steeled myself for another trek over the mountain. As I explained my new money making method to her, I cautioned her against telling her friends about it because - “because then everyone will do it and the price will go down,” she finished.
A few short days later my female friend asked me to meet her in Falador, our home town so to speak. When I arrived, via teleport no less, I was greeted with the beautiful sight of a girl in a shiny new set of Black (g), topped off with a white beret. She complimented me on my new haircut and beard, and my new Rune chainbody. We were the Lords of all creation. Shortly after this meeting, my friend let me know that she’d have to go offline for the night. For some reason, the mood took me to say goodbye in a more affectionate way than usual, and I wished to say, “buh-bye”. However, I did not know how to spell it and said “baby”. As my female friend was a friendly but serious and prudish young lady, she promptly replied, “How dare you!” Before I could explain she logged out, and I never heard from her again.

2022.01.29 07:49 ColsPlace Video - Future of Actual Budget
I watched the video but got bored. Activity has been around a while now but progress has been slow and despite many promises (with good intention I have no doubt) development keeps stalling. Not surprising seeing as this is very much a one man show and a sideline event in respect the devs personal income stream. I like Actual but cannot bring myself to rely on an app with such flaky development and support. I would rather pay YNAB's increased fee as that at least guarantees some stability. So I ask the question - does Actual really have a future as it stands? Is there really any hope for a professional looking and supported app in say 6 months?

2022.01.29 07:49 the_epicusername Paid university courses on Arabic (MSE)
Hi! I've been learning Arabic for about a year online (Duolingo, Memrise, so on). My company offers a personal development fund (up to 1000USD) and I want to use it for Arabic courses. I'm mostly interested in university-based courses (doesn't have to be credited) mostly so that I can put it on my CV and have a certificate. I know that this money would be better spent on 1-on-1 tutoring, but the company wouldn't support that.
If you have any suggestions - I'd be very grateful!

2022.01.29 07:49 itsovil I think I accidentally bought fake shoes, what should I do?
I think I accidentally bought fake pair of nike shoes from a thrifting account. I didn't double check with the seller asking for proofs or whether it's original or not, considering the reviews from multiple buyers that said the account sells legit shoes. Now my shoes has arrived and I tried to compare with the legit ones by googling and watching youtube reviews, I also tried checking the UPC but no results found on UPC web. Yes, I know that I should've been more careful, but now I'm not sure what to do because I don't know whether this nike shoes is real or not. What should I do? Should I wear them anyway? Because the truth is I'm not very comfortable with wearing knock-offs.

I'm 99% sure you could skin lurkers with the skin skill, and didn't need anything to get turtle shells. Can't search the turtles anymore and lurkers are only dropping claws?

2022.01.29 07:49 hoponthemoon2 [Uni] How to prepare beforehand?
I'm not sure if this is too late but after spending two months of actually taking a break for everything studies-related, I think that I should go and start studying up before uni.
I know that people tend to take multiple courses to improve their skills to look better for uni applications and I think that is something I probably want to do, because I am kind of reluctant to bank on my results alone in case they don't turn out well.
So, I just wanted to ask what kind of courses are generally recommended for someone like me and if this is something I should pursue?
