The classic WSB story - lost it all.

Going to keep this simple. EDIT: this isn’t simple and I should write a short story on this.
I am generally risk averse. I hate losing $100 at the casino, I hate paying extra for guac at chipotles, I will return something or price match an item for a few dollars of savings. I am generally frugal.
But, I somehow had no issues losing 10k in options...
How I started
I remember my first trades like they were yesterday. I was trading the first hydrogen run-up in 2014 (FCEL, BLDP, PLUG) and made a few hundred dollars over a couple weeks.
I quickly progressed to penny stocks / biotech binary events and general stock market gambling mid-2014. I was making a few % here and there but the trend was down in total account value. I was the king of buying the peak in run-ups. I managed to make it out of 2014 close to break-even to slightly down.
WSB Era
March 2015 was my first option trade. It was an AXP - American Express - monthly option trade. I saw one of the regular option traders/services post a block of 10,000 calls that had been bought for 1.3 and I followed the trade with 10 call options for a total of $1300.
I woke up the next day to an analyst upgrade on AXP and was up 50% on my position. I was addicted! I day-dreamed for days about my AXP over night success. I think around that time there was some sort of Buffet buyout of Heinz and an option trade that was up a ridiculous amount of %%%. I wanted to hit it BIG.
I came up with the idea that all I needed to reach my goal was a few 100% over night gains/ 1k>2k>4k>8k> etc. I convinced myself that I would have no problems being patient for the exact criteria that I had set and worked on some other trades.
Remember, the first win is always free.
I was trading options pretty regularly from March 2015 until August 2016. During my best week I was up 20k and could feel the milli within reach. I can remember the exact option trade (HTZ) and I was trading weeklies on it.
For those who have been in the market long enough, you will remember the huge drawdown of August 2015.
I lost half my account value on QCOM calls (100 of them) that I followed at the beginning of July and never materialized. I watched them eventually go to 0. It was another 10,000 block that was probably a hedge or sold.
In August 2015 there were some issues with China and all of us woke up to stocks gapping down huge. Unfortunately my idea of buying far dated calls during the following days/weeks after the crash went sideways. I quickly learned that an increase in volatility causes a rise in option prices and I was paying a premium for calls that were going to lose value very quickly (the infamous IV crush).
I kept trading options into the end of 2015 and managed to maintain my account value positive but the trading fees for the year amounted to $30,000+. My broker was loving it.
I tried all the services, all the strategies. I created rules for my option plays: 1. No earnings 2. Only follow the big buys at a discount (10,000 blocks or more). 3. No weekly options 4. Take profit right away 5. Take losses quickly 6. etc.
I had a whole note book of option plays that I was writing down and following. I was paying for option services that all of you know about - remember, they make money on the services and not trading.
I even figured out a loop-hole with my broker: if I didn’t have enough money in my account, I could change my ask price to .01 and then change it to market buy and I would only need to accept a warning ⚠️ for the order to go through. I was able to day trade the option and make money, who cares if I didnt have enough? After a few months of this, I got a call from my broker that told me to stop and that I would be suspended if I continued with this.
By the way, I was always able to satisfy the debit on the account - so it wasn’t an issue of lack of funds.
Lost it all. Started taking money from lines of credits, every penny that I earned and losing it quicker and quicker.
I was a full on gambler but I was convinced that 8 trades would offset all the losses. I kept getting drawn in to the idea that I could hit a homerun and make it out a hero.
I eventually hit rock bottom on some weekly expiring FSLR options that I bought hours before expiration and said to myself - what the f are you doing? I resolved to invest for the long term and stop throwing tendies away.
The feeling was reinforced during the birth of my first born and I thought - what a loser this kid will think of me if he knew how much I was gambling and wasting my life. It was a really powerful moment looking at my kid and reflecting on this idea.
I decided at that point I was going to save every penny I had and invest it on new issues with potential.
Fall 2016
TTD, COUP and NTNX IPO ‘ed I decided I was going to throw every dollar at these and did so for the next few months. I eventually started using margin (up to 215%) and buying these for the next 6 months. They paid out and managed to make it over 100k within the year.
The first 100k was hard but once I crossed it, I never fell below this magic number.
2017 - I did some day trading but it was mostly obsessing over the above issues. I did gamble on a few options here and there but never more than 1k.
2018 - SFIX was my big winner, I bought a gap up in June 2018 and my combined account value had crossed 400k by August 2018. I was really struggling at crossing the 500k account value and experienced 3 x 30-40% drawdowns over the next 2 years before I finally crossed the 500k barrier and have never looked back.
I still made some mistakes over the next few months - AKAO & GSUM come to mind. Both of these resulted in 20k+ losses. Fortunately my winners were much bigger than my losers.
I thought about giving up and moving to index funds - but i was doing well - just experiencing large drawdowns because of leverage.
2019 big winners were CRON SWAV STNE.
2017 / 2018 / 2019 all had six digit capital gains on my tax returns.
At the beginning of 2020 I was still day trading on margin (180-220%) and got a call from my broker that they were tightening up my margin as my account was analyzed by the risk department and deemed too risky. Believe it or not this was right before the covid crash. I brought my margin down to 100-110% of account value and even though the drawdown from covid hit hard, I wasn’t wiped out.
I stayed the course and bought FSLY / RH during the big march drawdown and this resulted in some nice gains over the next few months.
I am constantly changing and testing my investment strategy but let me tell you that obsessing over 1 or 2 ideas and throwing every penny at it and holding for a few years is the best strategy. It may not work at some point but right now it does.
I still day trade but I trade with 10k or less on each individual position. It allows me minimize my losses and my winners are 1-7%. I am able to consistently make between 3-700$/ a day on day trades using the above strategy. I still take losses and still dream about hitting it big with an option trade but dont feel the need to put it all on the line every month / week.
I finally crossed into the two , club. I know people are going to ask for proof or ban but I am not earning anything for posting and the details about some of the trades should be proof enough that I kept a detailed journal of it all. I have way more to write but these are the highlights.
Eventually I will share how I build a position in a story I love. I still sell buy and sell to early but I am working on improving.
TL:DR - I gambled, lost it all and gambled some more lost more. I made it out alive. I have only sold calls/puts lately.
The one common denominator in all successful people is how much they obsess over 1 or 2 ideas. Do the same. All the winners on this sub have gone all in on one idea (FSLY / TSLA ). Stick with new stories or ones that are changing and go all in...wait a second, I didnt learn anything.

MAME 0.221

MAME 0.221

Our fourth release of the year, MAME 0.221, is now ready. There are lots of interesting changes this time. We’ll start with some of the additions. There’s another load of TV games from JAKKS Pacific, Senario, Tech2Go and others. We’ve added another Panorama Screen Game & Watch title: this one features the lovable comic strip canine Snoopy. On the arcade side, we’ve got Great Bishi Bashi Champ and Anime Champ (both from Konami), Goori Goori (Unico), the prototype Galun.Pa! (Capcom CPS), a censored German version of Gun.Smoke, a Japanese location test version of DoDonPachi Dai-Ou-Jou, and more bootlegs of Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, Final Fight, Galaxian, Pang! 3 and Warriors of Fate.
In computer emulation, we’re proud to present another working UNIX workstation: the MIPS R3000 version of Sony’s NEWS family. NEWS was never widespread outside Japan, so it’s very exciting to see this running. F.Ulivi has added support for the Swedish/Finnish and German versions of the HP 86B, and added two service ROMs to the software list. ICEknight contributed a cassette software list for the Timex NTSC variants of the Sinclair home computers. There are some nice emulation improvements for the Luxor ABC family of computers, with the ABC 802 now considered working.
Other additions include discrete audio emulation for Midway’s Gun Fight, voice output for Filetto, support for configurable Toshiba Pasopia PAC2 slot devices, more vgmplay features, and lots more Capcom CPS mappers implemented according to equations from dumped PALs. This release also cleans up and simplifies ROM loading. For the most part things should work as well as or better than they did before, but MAME will no longer find loose CHD files in top-level media directories. This is intentional – it’s unwieldy with the number of supported systems.
As usual, you can get the source and 64-bit Windows binary packages from the download page. This will be the last month where we use this format for the release notes – with the increase in monthly development activity, it’s becoming impractical to keep up.

A Guide to Exploration

Hey y'all! I've been thinking about writing this for a long time, and university procrastination has given me the perfect opportunity. I know what you're thinking, "Exploration advice from an SDC member? Surely not!" However, I started in this game doing exploration, first in my Adder, then Diamondback, Asp, and finally a Conda. Been to the core twice, to the highest point above the galaxy, regularly go on medium-range trips out to various nebulae and prominent systems, and am currently en-route to Beagle point. Those who know me will know that I mostly do it for the sights and screenshot opportunities, and have had several shots of mine in the ED newsletter. So I figured I'd help out anyone who's new or curious about exploration. Here goes!

Exploration - what is it?

Pretty much what you'd expect - exploration involves venturing outside the bubble into the unknown for whatever purpose you have in mind, be it for the thrill, boredom, wanting to get your name on something, credits, or sightseeing.
The thing about exploration is that there's no linear progression or grind. You can take it at whatever pace you like. Ideally you should set yourself an end destination (nebula or interesting stacluster) and if it's a long distance (10,000ly+), set yourself waypoints to look forward to. Or you could just head out in a random direction and see where you eventually end up. As I've said before, your end goal could be reaching your destination, the credit payout, or the sick screenshots you get along the way.

Your ship

Like any profession in the game, exploration is possible in any ship but ideal in only a few. This small list is further broken down based on whether you have horizons or not, but I'll explain more about that later. Here are the basics of any exploration loadout:
Ideally, your ship should have a jump range of at least 25 light years. Some areas of the galaxy have quite a sparse stellar density, so your jump range can mean the difference between reaching that pretty O-class or not. It should have enough internal compartments to include the modules that are vital to your trip (AFMU's, scanners, and a vehicle hangar + shields for those that own Horizons.)
When it comes to purchasing and outfitting your ship, buy it and its modules at a Li Yong Rui system (Lembava, Diaguandri, LHS 20, 6 Andromedae). You'll get 15% off both the ship and all its modules which will bring your total cost down by a significant amount.
Here are a few long-range exploration ship builds for various prices (15% discount factored in). Some have the B-rated fuel scoops mounted to save on credits where it almost halves the build's cost, but you can mount the A-rated scoop if you have the credits:

What to do

Now that you have your ship, you're probably itching to get out there and explore. The first thing you should do is to choose a destination. If you're using any of the builds I've listed above, you'll be capable of flying anywhere in the galaxy. Yes, even the core region and beyond! Your destination could be a nebula, a particular star or system that you know of, or just an area of the galaxy that you want to travel to. Once you have decided on your location, hover over it in the galaxy map and note its distance from you in Ly (light years). The route planner can only plot routes up to 1000ly at a time, so if your destination is over 1000ly away, you'll need to find a system around 1000ly away from you in the general direction of your destination and plot a route to it. Once you have plotted your route, begin the first jump!
When you jump into an unexplored system (nothing showing on your sensors when you first jump in), throttle down to 30km/s in supercruise and charge up your advanced discovery scanner. This is done by binding it to a firegroup and then using it (works in supercruise and sublight). It will detect all astronomical bodies in that system, making them available for you to target from your navigational panel and view from the system map. You get exploration data to sell for every body you discover this way.
Once you've fired your scanner, target the star in front of you and point your ship at its centre. This should begin a detailed surface scan. A detailed surface scan is done by targeting an unexplored body and pointing the ship at it while in range until the scan is complete. You can tell if you're scanning an object by the spinning "loading" sprite in the bottom left panel, and by the scanning sound. Once complete, it will notify you and the body will now have a name beside it. Additional info on that body will also be available for you to view in the system map (gravity, composition, planet type). When an object is surface scanned, the data value you got from discovery scanning it is trebled.
When you're in the middle of scanning the main star, open your system map and take a look at all the bodies. The planets that pay out the most for detailed surface scans are earth-like worlds, water worlds, and ammonia worlds. If you are unsure about a planet's type, move your marker over it and zoom all the way in. If you listen carefully for around 20 seconds, you'll be able to hear its "cartographic music". Water worlds produce a deep ocean bubbling sound, earth-like worlds have singing birds, ice worlds have a harsh wind sound, etc. Recognition of these comes with practice. Decide what you want to scan and keep note of it.
Before you go out to scan bodies in the system or jump to the next one, scoop fuel off the main star if possible. The best way to do this is to travel parallel to the surface of the star in an orbit, which lets you fine-tune your distance from it. If your heat gets too high, back off and approach it again once you've cooled down.

Things to keep in mind

Oh, Be A Fine Girl, Kiss Me (O, B, A, F, G, K, M)
It also conveniently puts them in order from rarest to most common, hottest to coolest, and largest to smallest. Ergo, M-classes are the most common, coolest, and smallest of the main sequence stars. So if you find an O-class star on the map, it's probably worth visiting!

Things to look for

If you want to find interesting things in the galaxy, there are several ways to proceed.
Hope this helps anyone who's sort of interested in exploration. It's quite a nice profession, and really showcases how beautiful this game can be. If I've left anything out or if you've got other questions, just leave a comment or PM me and I'd be happy to help :) o7o7o7
