Re: Trick-It Master Thread I'm looking to shave off some YQ going from the big Apple  (specifically the one that was assassinated) to the land flowing with milk and honey. Can anyone help?

Does Brexit outcome indicate anything about Trump's chances As we are hours away from the Brexit referendum, the outcome might have multiple economic and political repercussions beyond the British shores.

One of the repercussions the political elites seem to be most scared of, is the emboldening of other nations to follow the example. This is why leaders from all over the world have been trying to influence the British to vote for Remain.

If indeed the referendum ends up decided as LEAVE, the Dutch will probably be next with a referendum, and from there it might snowball (or domino effect).

If I were in the UK, I would vote to Leave. While I am aware of possible short term financial instability, I think that will be short lived as all sides will want to enter free trade agreements in short order.

I see this as a simple question of sovereignty, and the interests are simply too divergent to agree to a surrender of sovereignty to the EU.

I am thinking that if the British indeed vote to leave, this could be a meaningful difference in favor of Trump in November. If the British can do it, so can we!

Re: Amex Platinum Master Thread
Last time this question was asked on DDF it caused a mess..
He's not asking for a link to the link. He just wants to know if maybe this guy used the link that went public, thereby negating the DP that downgrading right away is a clawback.

Re: Amex Platinum Master Thread
One possibility that I'm entertaining as to why they clawed back my points now is that I returned something at amazon that, along with the GE and airline credit, put the spend without credit at $2977 in the first three months - which triggered the 100k points taken back. Because the first rep I spoke to seemed to tell me that it was the return that triggered the point clawback. I've seen that it has happened to other people.
I think I hear some sighs of relief

DDF Weight Loss Challenge I don't know what you mean by "real fat", but fat is an essential (they're called essential fatty acids for a reason) and necessary part of a healthy diet. Also, without the additional calories from fat, you're likely not eating enough.

You need to understand that you don't lose weight by depriving your body of food or forcing yourself to exercise to a caloric deficit. You can't punish your body into losing weight. You lose weight by eating nutritionally beneficial foods, working with your body to help it heal and shed all the taxing, unnecessary pounds.

Maybe try adding some healthy carbs (sweet potatoes, pumpkin, butternut squash, fruits) and healthy fats (1-2 tbsp of oil, or 1/2 to 1 avocado per meal) for a week. Then you can cut back on the carbs, keeping the fats. Hopefully that'll help you overcome the plateau.

Great Circle Mapper Tips and Tricks Master Thread We all know and love GCMap, but based on some recent PMs even some seasoned DDF'ers are not overly familiar with the tool and how it works. I figured I'll put together a list of tips and tricks, as well as some advanced things that I've learned over the years that aren't documented anywhere (including GCMap's own knowledge base).

This thread could also serve as a place to ask any questions about the GCMapper and the like.

- To show the maps here on DDF, right-click on the map and choose Copy image address (Or whatever your browser's equivalent is). Paste the resulting link in to your post as an image.

Update early 2021: This does not currently work due to an HTTPS issue. For now, click the image and save it, then upload to an image host and paste the link as an image.

- The top search bar is useful for basic routes or searches. Start there, then use the field under Map Controls > Paths on the bottom of the page to do advanced things.

- To change the color of a route, put color:yellow, before your route. It doesn't have to be yellow, obviously; you could substitute that with a different color if you want. The color will remain the same for subsequent routes unless a different color is specified.

Code: [Select]
color:yellow,jfk-lax-sin-syd, color:blue, ewr-ord-lax-syd

- To see different routes originating from one airport, you don't have to put in all the complete routes (i.e. jfk-lax,jfk-sfo, etc.). Instead, you could just put the origin and separate the destinations with a slash.

Code: [Select]

- If your map looks weird, try changing your projection from the default to Rectangular (Plate Carrée). This option is found under Map Controls > Map Conf > Projection.

The first map here automatically gave me a polar projection, which is fine in some cases but doesn't really give you a good sense of place. Manually choosing Rectangular gave me the second map:

- GCMap only gives the option to zoom out of a map, not in. To get around this and only show a portion of your map, use o:noext, before the route that you want to cut off.

For example, a regular map doesn't show the European flights of this trip as well as I'd like, since it's a very small part of the full map.

Code: [Select]
Color:yellow, Cle-ewr-osl,osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-cdg-ewr-cle, ewr-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-cdg-ewr, ewr-lhr-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-zrh-ewr, lhr-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-lhr, tlv-muc-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-bru-tlv

Adding o:noext, before the segments I don't want to show fully gives me exactly what I wanted:

Code: [Select]
Color:yellow,o:noext,Cle-ewr-osl, osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-cdg,o:noext,cdg-ewr-cle,o:noext,ewr-osl,osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-cdg,o:noext,cdg-ewr,o:noext,ewr-lhr,lhr-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-zrh,o:noext,zrh-ewr,lhr-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-lhr,o:noext,tlv-muc,muc-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-bru,o:noext,bru-tlv,o:noext,binp

Of course, I could just drop the long hauls from the map, but that would give me no context; it just looks like a flying spree out of Oslo, like so:

Code: [Select]
Color:yellow, osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-cdg, osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-cdg, lhr-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-zrh, lhr-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-lhr, muc-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-bru

- Entering an airport code instead of a route gives you a point on the map. This could be very useful when planning a trip to an out of the way place.

For example, planning a trip to Greenland drove me crazy. For starters, the airport codes are incredibly unintuative, having nothing to do with the actual airport name. That was compounded by the fact that these names aren't pronounceable in the first place ;D. Add to that the fact that the service to these airports vary wildly, and I needed a better way to start planning this.

Enter GCMap. I used points for each airport, color coded by service, and viola. In this map I used green for the main airport with international service, yellow for smaller international airports with service from Iceland only, and red for airports with domestic Greenland service only. Choosing disc + user entered code + city name from the Map Controls > Markers > Simple dropdown is what enabled both the airport code and city name to be displayed on the map.

Code: [Select]

- You could add your own places and names.

To add a place, enter the coordinates. The easiest way to get those is to click on the spot in Google Maps, and the coordinates will show up on the bottom. Click on those, and you could copy and past it into GCMap. It's important to remember that Google and GCMap use coordinates differently; in particular, Google uses negative numbers for S and W, while in GCMap you need to use positive numbers and a  NSEW designation. For example, if Google gives you -74.050755, -41.945649, remove both minus signs, the comma, and space, and specify the direction NS of the Equator and EW of the Prime Meridian, like so: 74.050755s41.945649w.

To add your own place name, enter "%T\xxx"+@ with your text replacing the xxx. Place this before your coordinates, then choose disc + user entered code from the Map Controls > Markers > Simple dropdown.

Code: [Select]
color:white,"%T\Very Cold and Wet Place, But Penguins"+@74.050755s41.945649w

- Entering BINP gives you the North Pole. I'm not sure how or why, but it works ;D.

Code: [Select]

I'm sure there are more, this is just what I could think of at the moment. Feel free to add your own tips.

Re: In A Tight Spot - Looking For Some Insight
Hi there,

I am currently in a bit of a bind.
I have numerous Chase credit cards as well as some from other banks that have all recently come due with their annual fees.
I have paid the fees in the past simply because I wasn't interested in hassling.
This was not the most responsible decision as I could not afford to pay the fees and most of the cards I barely use.
I understand that one can downgrade in certain  scenarios such as with the Saph Preferred to Reg Saph.
With these cards however, such as the Chase BA card and Chase Hyatt card, there is no lower tier card to downgrade to.
In a perfect world I would love to keep the cards and have them in my pocket in case I need to use one of the benefits, but realistically I cannot simply absorb the cost this time around.
Other than losing the benefits for a rainy day, I am most concerned about closing the cards, losing the credit, and thereby hurting my overall credit score.
So - other than calling and trying to waive the fees by begging (which I am really not in the mood of doing) what are my best courses of action?
Are there specific tactics one can use if I call where I would avoid begging but still convince them to maintain the cards through a waiver of the fee?
Would they be open to shifting all my credit lines to other cards?

I understand this post may have been a bit long winded but I wanted to ensure that I covered all the bases.
Thank you for reading and I would truly appreciate any advice.
Shifting credit before closing is easy.

If Trump does everything right and always remains presidential (which I don't think is remotely likely), can you imagine the left making a 180?
Here's a prediction: In two months from now, we'll all be shocked at how normal a person Trump is. In six months from now, we'll almost have forgotten the crazy campaign season of 2016.

I would like to make another unpleasant prediction. In a couple of months people might be reminded that Trump is not really a conservative. Let's just hope that Congress does the right thing over the next two years, and that Trump's cabinet and other appointments turn out for the good of this country.

Get ready for 4-8 years of imaginary attacks. They will vandalize their own property and post pictures of it. They will post heartbreaking accounts of their encounters on the train, at the store, at school, etc.

Remember that their entire ideology is boils down to a self-righteous persecution complex. It really is a mental disorder.
