The Gear VR only works with Samsung Galaxy devices. Google Daydream is pretty much the gold standard for mobile VR at the moment, but it only works on a handful of phones. Any phone with a >5" 1080p display and a decent SoC will work fine for VR video using a generic headset, but an OLED display is preferable. Any of the cheap headsets will work fine as long as it's got an FoV of more than 100 degrees and adjustable diopter and IPD.

Oculus Go is due out in Q1 2018, which will probably be the best affordable VR solution.

I have enjoyed the videos I've seen, but my phone (Moto G5) seems to just not want to deal with about 80% of them. It'll play the audio but the screen will be black. It's very frustrating, and I'm assuming it's to do with resolutions or something.

I'd say he can. In the early 00s it's not something that would pop into anyone's head given anonymity was still generally assumed and I'm still not even sure if terms like 'Marmite Motorway' count as homophobia given our cultures love of sex euphemisms.

Anyway, this is the point I was getting at, he signed a contract but 'past actions that could bring disrepute' is a rather nebulous and subjective clause that is largely decided upon retroactively. For example, if the Mrs occasionally pisses on me or I put her over my knee and spank her it can all seem like none of party business but it very much can be if we get labeled the Golden Showers or the police try and do me for BDSM -and that is stuff you would ordinarily flash across your mind. If this came up in a court of law it would be pretty easy to pick it apart on the red hand rule alone and if I were a party leader I would also be rather cautious with the whip anyway considering everyone has some skeletons in their closets.

I had my MSN connected to my profile and later on added few of the other users on facebook. It probably wouldn't be too hard for the gutterpress to track me down even if I deleted all the posts or for old friends to blackmail me.

So I have had a work offer withdrawn due to reference. The employing manager reasons sound like she was given inaccurate information in that reference which is misleading

So what steps do I need to take I will request a copy of that reference. I know I have dyslexia and my current has already used that once to discriminated against while offering no support or help based on recommendation made to them from Occupational health.

This is in the NHS by the way moving to another NHS trust.

If it's about your dyslexia then you probably want to read up on the Disability Discrimination Act, if you haven't already. The NHS (and other government bodies) tend to toe the line when it comes to that kind of thing; they have a legal obligation to accommodate your disability. You are not disabled, you have a disability, and it's up to them to deal with it. You can demand mediation and even (threaten to) take them to court over it if necessary.

I know several of these are old now but I'm in need of a diversion this morning so I thought I'd give some feedback. Obviously this is all just my taste and the production suggestions are not meant to be taken as objective feedback, they're just what would work for me.

Most of the lead on this sounds more like a Pink Floyd, Dave Gilmour solo than Hendrix to me. I like it, anyway, tight recording. Possibly a little over-polished, hence the other lad/lass comment about it sounding like porn music. >>10442 is much better in this regard - a good combination of things in the mix and all well-levelled, and properly processed without sounding plastic. The work you've put into your production techniques between the two is evident.

Vocals are too clean; could possibly benefit from some reverb, and then compressor/EQing. The guitar is slightly out of tune and isn't particularly well-captured, which can be endearing for this kind of music, but at least needs some more treble to give it some more definition to bring it back into the mix (this has probably been lost in recording, so something to work on next time), and definitely less clipping. For this kind of thing, ideally you'd mic different parts of the guitar from a reasonable distance (neck for the higher frequencies, body for the lower, and not necessarily the sound hole, counter-intuitively - you'll get booming, like a mic without a baffle) and play around with the resulting tracks afterwards, but even if you continue using what you've got, turn it down some to get a cleaner output and adjust it back up in the mix. Bottom line, remember that you can generally make a cleanly-recorded acoustic guitar sound more "raw" with a bit of post-processing, but a bad recording is basically stuck like that. The clock chimes are also too piercing for my taste -they contrast sharply with the muffled guitar- but that at least is easily fixed.

Excellent bit of punk. Appropriately grungy, short, and offensive with a bit of self-aware wit; not much to add. (You're doing the opposite of refuting post-modernism, though, incidentally. Maybe I'm missing the joke.)

Thanks for the feedback lad, even if it has been so long that I forgot about posting either track. I'm glad you picked up the Gilmour vibe too, that's pretty much exactly what I was going for.

>The work you've put into your production techniques between the two is evident.

What you're hearing there is actually a stark demonstration of the difference between digital amp modelling, and a real valve amp properly mic'd up. I've been at this for years, but I live in a first floor flat, so sometimes "silent recording" is my only option.


I got a decent chuckle out of this one. Very nice gritty vocals I must say. Do I detect perhaps a touch of Half Man Half Biscuit?

I know it's been a couple of months, but the thing was recorded on, then hastily mastered on, a cheap Aldi headset in an echoey loft.

The guitar is tuned to the chimes, hence why it's out of tune.

/b/413586 Visas and that
Borderlads, I need your help!

My Chinese girlfriend is in the UK on a Tier 4 student visa (not short term) that's due to expire in mid-January 2018. Her mates — also from SEA — have told her she can leave the country for France for a couple of days around the time her visa expires before coming back in on a three-month tourist visa, however she's unsure as to whether they're pulling her leg and she still has her pilot's exam to complete.

Is there any truth to this? If so can she come back in to sit her pilot's exam on a tourist visa? How difficult is it to renew a tier 4 student visa?

She could do that, but it would be very much illegal, and if caught she may find that future visa applications are refused. One of the questions on visa applications is whether you have had an application refused, so it becomes a vicious cycle.

Of course, given the bigots currently in government, don't be surprised if she applies for a renewal and is refused.

So, who here's tagging along with this latest drugs craze?

I know there was at least one of you with good knowledge on this subject in a smoking thread we had on /b/ a while ago, but I thought we could do with a general dedicated thread now it seems more and more of us are getting them.

I've personally just invested about £50 for two Kanger e-Smart batteries with clearomisers, liquid and addendums and I'm quite enjoying this whole vaping business. It seems to be even more moreish than cigarettes, and I'm looking forward to going through some of the tastier flavours. What setups have you got? Any comment on my kit (510 battery, T3 clearomisers) if you're familiar with it? I seem to already be getting that sucking/gargling noise which is apparently to do with the liquid being in parts of the apparatus it shouldn't be, but have followed YouTube guides to try and clear it out to no avail.

Anyway, yes. Vaporising general.

Reporting my experience at just under a week in and it's pretty ace.

I've not had any cravings for proper fags even though I'm on 3mg. That might be down to the fact that you can puff away constantly but still, I just tried a fag as a bit of a treat and it only made me feel ill. Early days admittedly but I could get used to this until I inevitably lose it on a night out.

So I've been using a little Joyetech all-in-one box for the past year or so, and I think it's about time to upgrade to something fancier. I was wondering if you chaps would have any recommendations? I think it'd be nice to be able to adjust the power and airflow, that sort of stuff. Just a bit more of a customisable experience than I have now, but nothing too in depth like these ones you have to make up your own heads and regulate the flow of liquid or whatever.

I like the look of something like:

If you're broadly happy with your Joyetech all-in-one, then there's a more advanced version available called the eVic AIO. It uses the same Cubis coils as the basic Joyetech devices, but it has variable wattage, temperature control, variable airflow and a user-replaceable battery.

Whatever you buy, I'd suggest importing it from a Chinese supplier. It's considerably cheaper and you avoid the 2ml liquid capacity limit that applies to products sold within the EU. Shipping usually takes less than two weeks.

Alternative all-in-one devices with advanced controls include the Kanger Cupti and the Aspire Plato.

If you'd prefer a separate mod and tank, then there are a dizzying array of choices. I think that the Joyetech eVic Primo Mini is a safe choice. It's compact while still being powerful, it feels good in the hand, it has reliable temperature control, the included tank is easy to fill and has a good selection of coils and the kit is very reasonably priced.

I'm beginning to wonder how much celebrity sexual harassment stuff is just office grade gossip that has been elevated because the people involved are celebrities, I've started to presume when we don't hear the details it is because they know people would just roll their eyes at it "he called me sweetie" grade stuff, so best leave it up to our imagination so that we group it in with the sort we do hear about, like date rapist Kevin Spacey. This particular one was obviously hot on the heels of the Jimmy Savile story breaking so there was a news narrative momentum to find more related stories, no matter how ropey.

The Tory 'dirty dossier' was a fucking joke for some of the stuff on it 'good heavens, they dated someone they met through work, stop the presses!' but spun like we should be calling for blood. It has lead me to the hardly revolutionary conclusion there is a bias to make this stuff seam worse than it is to sell rags and therefore until I hear very expressly what happened in reported sexually harassment incidents with high profile people I am presuming nothing noteworthy did.

I almost forgot it was Remembrance coming up without that anti-Poppy-lad reminding us.

Did you get yourself a poppy this year?

There was a Armistice Day dance set to The Proclaimers "I Would Walk 500 Miles" on Strictly. Is that another opportunity to think back to my great-grandfathers efforts in WW2 and the great-uncle who lost a toe to the IRA, or cloying nonsense to appease pretend patriots?

It's the second, definitely the second.

Just had a look, Jesus. And another OK Go 'homage'?

Why are the male dancers in fatigues also wearing poppies? It's not like they wore them in the trenches, they grew over their fucking corpses.

Top notch remembrancing from the Beeb there. Maximum respect for the Fallen. There's nothing that conveys the full horror of war quite like people prancing around a ballroom to the house band's rendition of a 1980s pop song. I bet Poppy Watch would give it at least 10/10 if not more.

/b/413566 I've either been robbed or judged
Forgot to lock my door when popping to the shops.

I just got back, and now both my grinder and weed have disappeared from my table. I'd left some money next to it, which is still where it was, can't see anything else gone - literally just my grinder and the bag of weed. I'm really confused and quite creeped out.

I've checked the flat for intruders, and now I'm just fucking confused. I live alone, there's 3 other flats on my floor and I don't really talk to my neighbours past an introduction, I was gone about 10 minutes, and then as far as I can see it's just those specific items that have disappeared. And the cash next to it is still there.

I've considered that I'm going mental and maybe misplaced them, but I've looked around the house and nowt.

It feels like someone's trying to teach me a lesson or something, I mean they would have taken the money if they were just stealing. I think I'm going to try leaving my door unlocked again next time I pick up, and set a camera up. I mean the bag was right next to my expensive PC and multiple external HDDs, they're not missing. It's got to have something to do with the weed specifically.

On reflection, it must be one of the neighbours, right? Perhaps they can smell it through the wall and disapprove? But then why would they guess the one time I forget to lock my door, and do a quick in and out? No note or anything? If the smell's bothering them, I guess maybe I can see some logic?

Can you guys help me figure this out because I'm quite upset. Should I leave a note on the stairway door telling people to watch out for thieves or something?

I assume then that there is no locked second door between your flats and the street. Do you live in a shit area?

Why don't you confide in said really lovely guy? He'd want to know if there are thieves about and he might be able to provide clues about your missing stash.

I read that in Chris Morris' voice. Thanks.


I'm very particular about these things. I have a box and everything, it all stays in the box, I just left the box on my desk this time :/


There's a lobby door that locks, but then it's just stairs up to my door. Top floor. It's a well off studenty area, and mostly couples or families in the block. My room-mate is in America for the month - fortunately I gave him a spare grinder a while back and he'd left it in his room.


Honestly I'd rather just remember to lock my door than have a conversation, we might end up becoming friends and I'm trying to avoid social obligations for now. He might have just been smoking a roached rollie when I saw him, so could potentially be a sober gent anyway.

My life has gone downhill ever since I met a Brazilian Ju Jitsu fighter at Westfield and saw him selling copies of big tissue. It's strange but the way I remember it was that I was set for everything but at December in 2011, things became worse. Nothing mattered and I couldn't eat much as well as wondering whether the nootropics I was taking would actually end up in me being hospitalised. It becomes extraordinarily strange when I realise a lot of it was recorded on this here website, on the IRC itself. I want to understand exactly what was happening in 2012. There's some more things that happened which include kidnapping, torture and brainwashing (as well as strong secret service intimidation) but I wanted to find out exactly why my life became strange.

I remember absolutely everything as well as absolutley nothing. If you get my gist.

What's more hilarious is how the idea of Shariah Patrols were popularised. On the night of the 2011 riots, I made a post in the huge thread we had on .gs about the activities of the YMO. purple decided to take this to parliament and they ended up having a discussion about it. Soon after, purple decided to engineer a series of youtube videos about it and then the idea took hold within the imaginations of a few billion. This only happened because of that imageboard post as purple would have otherwise left such propaganda alone.

When I really think about it, I probably would have never lived a normal life but I'm sort of satisfied when I was successfully able to promote the idea of semi autonomous regions existing within London. That in itself is some sort of recompense I suppose.

Does any moderator have the capability to show me the riots thread?

I think it's a fairly serious matter at this point.

The Dell has been mostly resurrected with a bit of solder and a couple more donor keys. The space bar isn't very well stabilised, though.

Not that it matters; I got this bad boy a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't be happier.

What's the best way to defrost a windscreen?

Some say warm water can damage glass, others say modern glass is tougher.

I sometimes use de-icer but it's not very effective. As someone else puts it:

'while the ice initially melts, very soon the volatile liquid evaporates leaving water and, as any schoolchild will tell you, evaporation causes cooling.

So what you get is a short time of melted ice followed by a screen, which is even colder than when you first began, quickly freezing up again!'

Is there a way of predicting if the windscreen will be frozen the next morning? That way I can put the ice blanket up. Is it below 4°c with a clear sky?

My advice is get one of these scrapers which have a long handle.
It actually makes a huge difference for me in being able to clear my windscreen quickly, just thanks to being able to use 2 hands and get a little weight behind it.

I just put the ice blanket on regardless; it might take 20 seconds to remove if you didn't need it but it saves untold minutes when it is needed.

A guy I went to work with used to put clingfilm on the windscreen at night to which the frost would adhere, then just pull it off in the morning before he left for work.

I just used a scraper and de-icer. It doesn't take long. Hot water is useless, it will just cool and freeze to the windscreen.

On the plus side, in my experience at least, this should be the beginning of the upswing for you. Once I realised that I wasn't having at fun at all drinking any more, and that I was only drinking to A) blot out deep emotional pain and B) to fend off fucking withdrawal symptoms, I was able to do as >>7963 suggests and start working towards dealing with my problems in a more constructive way.

Back on it after a good 8 months off. Had a few slips in the last few weeks but this is the first session where I've realised I'm fully "back". A word of advice, don't keep emergency booze in the house for emergencies. You are just making a provision with which to try and bargain with yourself later in a more fiendy state of mind and law of averages says it's bound to happen sooner or later. Like nuclear war. We're all; going to fucking die.

The worst part is I just genuinely forgot I had a bottle under the sink or I'd definitely have done it before now. But can still trick myself into believing that having had it in the house all this time while sober is proof I have willpower after all and thus an excuse to reward myself by drinking it..?

It's getting to the point where talking about how this shit is evil isn't even an attempt to kid myself into being sensible anymore. I actually HAVE to quit drinking for real. But I'm still googling 24 hour off licences at 4am because a beer would be fucking amazing. Even after the best part of a litre of voddy it's what I actually need to really feel like I've come home.
