Star Wars Rebels: Running Around the Galaxy With Half a Soul by Godoflaundrybaskets
Summary:
Jedi don't have daemons. Most of the galaxy does. A series of drabbles set around this idea.
Reccer's Notes:
There are only two stories in this series, one of young Caleb Dume finding an ally in Janus Kasmir. Basically Janus' thoughts (and arguments with his daemon) in an alternate version of the first couple comics from the tie-in series. The second is an older Kanan post-Gorse being forced to reveal his secret before accepting a position aboard the Ghost with Hera.
I just love the idea of Kanan having a very visible and obvious marker setting him apart as a Jedi. The author plays around with different daemon mythos and how people react to the idea of someone being without. Even adding in notes of how Imperial propaganda would have used that fact to spread the word that the Jedi had been evil all along. There's so much thought put into how daemons work in this universe and it's just so much fun.

Fuji X-Pro 2 vs. Sony A7 II: Noise Comparison - Admiring Light
2. When both cameras are set to ISO200, the Fujis have the full usable well capacity and thus dynamic range available, whereas the Sony applies two-fold amplification and thus has half of its dynamic range available. Something to keep in mind when comparing cameras based on the same sensor that have different base ISOs (e.g., D7000 and X-Pro1), but it’s a bit trickier with sensors based on different technologies.

How to Set Up Multilingual Text Prediction in Windows 10
How to Set Up Multilingual Text Prediction in Windows 10 September 13, 2018 at 04:03AM https://ift.tt/2MrG59o

In Windows 10, you can type in easily switch and type in multiple languages that follow the Latin alphabet. Common Latin languages include English, German, Spanish, and French etc. You do not have to switch the languages manually in the language settings every time you decide to change over to another language.

This feature is a part of Windows 10 Text Prediction.

Set Up Multilingual Text Prediction in Windows 10

Windows 10 has enabled multilingual text prediction for both software (touch screen) keyboards and hardware keyboards. From your experience on mobile devices, you can guess that text prediction not only saves time while typing but also helps you select the right spellings. Multilingual text prediction takes this further if you work in multiple Latin Script languages.

Here’s how you can switch on and switch off the multilingual text prediction in Settings.

Open Settings (shortcut: Windows key + I). Click on the Devices icon.

Under Devices, select the Typing section from the left column.

Scroll down to Multilingual text prediction.

Toggle the Show text predictions based on the recognized languages you’re typing in setting to the On position.

Windows supports up to three Latin script languages for multi-lingual text predictions. It suggests predictions from the top three preferred languages in your computer’s System Settings.

The toggle switch saves you the bother of manually selecting the languages every time you type. Also, it increases the scope of your communication if you are fluent in more than one language. And you can keep fighting those pesky typos thanks to auto-correct and the spelling and grammar check tools in Microsoft Office

MCU: Something Different by tsukinofaerii
Summary: Roughly a year after the events at the Stark Expo, Pepper's "stable-ish" relationship with Tony has deteriorated into more —ish than stable. Tony has been keeping secrets, and he's brought home a mystery blond who occupies all his time—including the time he should have been using for work. While holding things together, Pepper finds herself getting much, much closer to Natalie. But Natalie may be hiding a few secrets of her own.
Reccer's Notes: Pepper is her typical competent, badass self but she has a thread of emotional vulnerability running through her internal monologue which is very relatable. The relationships are complicated, sexy, messy and real.
