My DualSense Stick Drift and RMA experience. Sony's process is top-notch.

2021.12.06 23:53 TheObviousChild My DualSense Stick Drift and RMA experience. Sony's process is top-notch.

A few weeks ago I was about 65 hours into Borderlands 2 and noticed my character would, very occasionally, take a few steps forward, unprompted. Didn't think much of it, but by mid-November, I had moved on to Nioh 2 (which is amazing on PS5 btw). If you've played Nioh or any SoulsBourne, you will know that precision control is paramount, especially when sneaking up on an enemy. So I got very frustrated when I would unintentionally walk into the back of someone or be peering over a ledge, only to start walking forward to my death. This REALLY sucks when you have a whole bunch of Amrita/Souls on the line. The biggest "I seem to be having a problem with my controller" moment though was when I was in the skills menu tree and the cursor would blatantly shoot to the top of the screen like it was running away from something. It clearly did not want me putting skill points into low stance. I can't blame it.
So I recall hearing about stick drift early on in the PS5 launch and so I start there. It sure sounds like it. I try the home remedies. I'm a DIY'er so I think maybe I'll replace the part myself. But I don't have a soldering gun...or soldering tools...or any soldering skillz. Onto RMA.
I'll admit up front, I am not a fan of returning things and getting refurbs. The process can take forever, items can get lost in shipping, and I am the kind of person who babies my consumer electronics. I still have my OG PS1 in the box and, aside from whaling on it a bit playing the original THPS, it still works good as new and looks it. Point being, getting a controller that has miles on it from a stranger is less than appealing.
But it seems I don't have a choice. I go ahead and start the process. Looking for an 800 number to call, I actually find a spot on the website that allows me to file a claim. Convenient. No hold times. I gather the info, print it out, and I'm off to the UPS store. I'm also comforted by the fact that Sony says, as long as you can show proof of shipping, they will cover anything that gets lost. Another thumbs up for Sony!
After sending it off, I realize I can't go long without some playtime so I use this as an opportunity to pick up the red DualSense. Looks very cool and no drift.
A couple of days later I receive an email from Sony informing me that my controller is being sent back. Much quicker than expected. Well today it showed up. Whole thing took about 8 days from me sending it off. In my eyes, that's pretty impressive.
What's even cooler is, as far as I can tell, they sent me a brand new unit. No evidence of someone else's Cheeto hands.
I've been a Sony fan since my dad brought home a Trinitron. Since I got my first DiscMan. Been a PS fan since the first one dropped in the late 90's and I've had every generation since...still their boxes.
Long winded post, but I'm hoping it can give some other stick-drifter some comfort knowing they won't be down for long.
Good job Sony.

2021.12.06 23:53 BrianFrobey The Aloy show is great, but the challenges ruin it

It's awesome that we've gotten a show that's unique as this one, featuring new twists on existing courses, but feeling the obligation to do the challenges during the show ruins it for me. Mediatonic needs to rethink how they implement challenges and to make them more fun.

2021.12.06 23:53 Auron111 Crashed ship question.

I hope I can get some clarification on this as I have had this happen twice now but still not made a decision.
Playing a fresh Permadeath save and within the first 2 hours I find two crashed ships, both haulers C-class with 40 or so slots. Trade price is about 40 million but selling it for scrap doesn't even give me 4 million (due to broken slots) Question is do I repair and scrap..or just trade it since at least with trading it shows the full value allowing me to exchange it for an A class fighter for free as a fighter doesn't cost that much at all.
Also my starting system had a cool planet. Bubbles and a werid colour shift that turned my starting ship silver with green engines XD

2021.12.06 23:53 NitroGenesis17 I've somehow let go of anxiety in terms of finals and idk if it's a good thing or a bad thing (long post srry)

TW: SERIOUS mental health talk (suicide)
I'm gonna be first semester of law school has was...not great. I had really severe mental health problems and missed lots of class/haven't read much. I haven't properly prepared for finals either (trying my best though). I haven't got accommodations for my ADHD/physical disability that I'm realizing I need now (fingers crossed for next semester). Everyday I went to class wracked with anxiety because of an overwhelming feeling of not fitting in, of not having any friends, but really my anxiety and insecurities just cause me to self-isolate further.
I realized that with the school I'm at, and with my newly realized career goals (wanted fed gov but DEF don't want it now; goal is labor law/general public defender) that poor first semester grades won't break me. My scholarship is not conditional, so there's another good thing. I used to have this incessant need to be at the top because I felt inferior because of my ADHD. But I'm realizing that good grades never made me happy, they just made me feel adequate. I never celebrated any of my accomplishments because I just saw those things as expected. While that mentality got me to where I am now, it no longer gives me anything but break-downs. I'm so done with the rat race. I just wanna graduate and help people. I've only wanted to make positive changes in other's life. I just happened to choose law to do that.
I've let go of all idea of "prestige." In placing my own value in my grades and academic prestige, I unconsciously judged others on the same scale. I was horrified when I realized this, and have rejected this mindset ever since. My happiness comes from my fiancée, my cats, my video games, my art, my self-expression through fashion. And I'm gonna be okay even if I'm at the bottom of the curve. I'm gonna be okay. I think this attitude has made my lack of studying worse. But at this point I only have 2 days till my first final. All I can do is cram and hope for the best, and do better next semester.
This attitude is obviously going to negatively affect my academic performance, at least this semester. But I just can't survive with how I used to think. Not if I want to be happy. This semester almost killed me multiple times :( I'm grateful that it didn't though. I'm now in therapy, and on new meds, which has made such a difference. This has been a long time coming, and I guess law school was the breaking point. I don't know if I'll be able to keep up this mentality, I've only thought like this for a week lol.
Anyway I guess I just wanna say to everyone that nothing is worth sacrificing your mental health. I just needed to let this out somewhere.
Now I'm gonna go study property byeeee

2021.12.06 23:53 shinernoob Opinions re: Heating Elements on efficiency and flavor

I've been running a retrofitted 36 qt. stock pot (stainless) as my still on a glass electric cooktop (much to my wife's chagrin). I've recently started using a 12 qt thumper instead of separate stripping and spirit runs.
The setup works fine, but it takes me about 4-5 hours, depending on the volume in the boiler (5-. So, I've started researching heating elements. Looks intriguing, but want to know:
A) can this negatively impact the flavor? I know scorching is a risk, but is it a bigger concern than my current setup?
B) is it more efficient? Does it get hotter faster? Does it get too hot that it scorches?
Happy to hear any opinions.

2021.12.06 23:53 TotalPasta Theory on Harrison’s Fate

Apologies if this has already been posted.. but I have been speculating from episode one that Dexter might kill Harrison. We know a reoccurring theme of the series is that people Dexter loves dies. During a scene in episode one, Deb lists all the loved ones he’s lost as she digs out the fatal bullet out of her abdomen... Harrison can be seen standing behind her and very briefly, a stab wound appears on his chest and blood soaks his shirt. This stab wound is different from Harrison’s self inflicted wound episodes later, and seems to fit exactly how Dexter stabs his victims. Possible foreshadowing or just a projection of Dexter feeling responsible for his loved one’s deaths?
The latter seems more plausible but what could cause Dexter kill Harrison?
Maybe Harrison has killed innocent people before and plans to do it again.. maybe Dexter tries to get Harrison to abide by the code and he refuses. Could Harrison have killed Hannah? What if Harrison attempts to kill Dexter and Dex responds with self preservation… after all he did kill his own brother.
Harrison does not trust Dexter and I find it harder and harder to believe they’ll be able to forage a good relationship.. but obviously a MAJOR plot twist would have to occur for Dexter to kill Harrison.
Honestly, I think this would be kinda lame and a waste of potential for the show but this is the inkling I’ve had for a while.. what do y’all think?

2021.12.06 23:53 slashfer Tô bem preocupado com o ano que vem.

No início do ano a gente tava nas nuvens. Porra nem sonhava que a gente poderia ter batido campeão se fosse um pouco mais qualificado.
Aí entra a nova temporada. Porra, tecnico novo, Taison de volta, alguns reforços. O bicho vai pegar. Nao foi.
Agora vejo muitas brigas tanto em torcida como nos bastidores e dos influencers que tem sim um grande papel nos bastidores do clube. , uma diretoria perdida que parece que tá se borrando toda se chegar a fazer algo mais radical.
Fosse por mim não renovava com ninguém que tá vencendo, buscava novos lugares prós caras que estao ainda aí e não renderam nada.
Me dá raiva quando vem os baldasso e uns torcedores querendo gavar Rodrigo Caetano e outros fãs diretorias antigas. O time tá nessa lama faz tempo, mas parece que não vai mudar nada, e se continuar assim vai pior ainda mais.
