26742 Dashcams
Can anyone recommend a good dashcam?

I want something that I don't have to remove after I stop driving to deter thieves. So something inconspicuous would be ideal. I've seen ones that clip onto the frontside of the rearview mirror but they also seem to augment the rearview itself, putting a control menu there which I don't like.

Techmoan has a lot of good reviews, though he does a lot less now that he's focusing more on Hi-Fi stuff.

Anything made by vico vation are very good choices, but they tend to be on the higher-priced side.

26727 Sibilant in-ear headphones.
I've been religiously buying a new set of SoundMAGIC E-10s every 8 -9 months for the past 5 or so years, and so when my latest set gave up, I decided to try something different.

Reading the rave reviews online, I bought a set of RockJAW Alfa Genus V2s. While they are definitely great sounding in the low and mid range, the trebles are absolutely atrocious. Cymbals and 's' sounds are piercing to the point of painfulness unless I listen to them very quietly.

Should I return them while I still can or will this disappear as they get burned in?

Lads, are any of you au fait with cassette tapes?

Me and a few mates have been making music for a couple of years, and due to life it's probably coming to an end pretty soon. As an interesting keepsake (for practical terms, we have everything online), I'd like to make us all a cassette of all the music we've made.

I don't have any blank cassettes in the house so I am hunting around eBay.

What should I look out for when buying new old stock cassettes? Are Type II Chrome tapes worth the extra cash?
I've seen a small smattering of Type IV metal tapes - do they require any special equipment or will the Type II setting on my deck suffice?

Which is better for noise reduction? My deck has B and C but if a deck doesn't have it, will it interfere?

Cheers, lads.

I remember mine had 12 seconds of buffer, so you'd really have to shake it continuously for near to that amount of time to hear any skipping.

It rinsed the battery, though, and the frustration of having a machine that was portable yet almost exactly *just* too big to fit in a normal pocket was a bit of a disappointment.

If you spam this on an imageboard with thousands of visitors (rather than the three we have here), and a few hundred click through and spend 30 seconds to 1 minute reading that poorly researched shite, and 90-95% of them aren't using some form of scriptblocker, I imagine you'll make more than you would with banner ads.

It would depend on what currency is being mined and how intense the script is (and I'm not interested in finding out). Someone who knows more about crypto than I may be able to throw out some figures.

Three offer unlimited data on many of their plans, and it seems legitimately unlimited as far as I have found. I pay 20 quid a month for mine. That's a rolling SIM only contract so you're not locked in, that might be decent for you? Otherwise their pay as you go SIM plan charges 1p per MB.

I'd suggest an O2 or Three pay-as-you-go SIM. The standard tariff on both is 1p/MB data, 2p texts and 3p/min calls. Your credit doesn't expire. If your broadband keels over or you go into hospital, you can buy a monthly add-on for more data and tether your laptop to your phone via Wifi. Three offer slightly better deals on the larger data add-ons. These tariffs are your best bet if you're normally a light user, but occasionally need to use loads of data.

The NHS is committed to providing free WiFi for hospital patients by the end of this year, although there's no guarantees on quality.

I really want an old rotary telephone. I remember using one at my nan's as a kid and the tactility is so satisfying.

Does anyone knows if BT/Virgin still support pulse dialling? My plan is to buy one anyway and convert it to USB using a PIC/Arduino/Pi/Whatever to use it as a VoIP dialler, but it would be nice if I could also connect it to the real phone network.

Only one thing - should you be able your own voice through the receiver?

Turns out a commercial solution for my bluetooth idea does exist, but it does look a bit pricey, especially considering I'll have to modify the RJx jack to the standard BT one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/liGo-Bluewave-Link-Mobile-Hub/dp/B008D2Y1N4/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_121_t_0?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=XY82HWSCAM4V9759Q9VN

Dropbox's free 2GB seems too small to store my online videos so I looked into paying for an upgrade. Their Dropbox Plus package includes 1TB - good stuff - for £79.99 a year.

What the fuck? That's silly money. I could buy a 1TB+ external hard drive for less than half of that and keep it forever. But they want to charge me that much to just rent one?

How can the cloud storage services justify these prices? Technology companies must be able to buy storage at massive bulk discounts.

You might not stop offering it, but then again you're not a top 10 hosting company, so I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that they know their business better than you do. There are plenty of potential explanations for them pulling the plug. If you wanted to just focus on numbers, the straightforward explanation for closing it to new customers while continuing to service existing customers indefinitely would be the marginal cost of new customers, which is made up almost entirely of the physical resources underlying it - hardware and power.

As I said, they know their business better than we do, but if I had to speculate at the reason for doing it, I'd guess that either it's profitable but not sufficiently so, it's someone's pet project and they've moved on, or they believe it's cannibalising the market for the storage part of their primary cloud offering.

I was using an old Moto G2 until recently. As the charging port became warped, a few times I've decided to have a fiddle around with a pin or toothpick to get it back into position and connect properly with the charger.

While tired last night, I tried to use the edge of a pair of tweezers. This went badly and I've totally mashed the inside of the port.

I've already ordered a replacement handset so I'm not exactly heartbroken, but it would be nice to have a go at fixing it and keeping it as a spare handset.

Have any of you lads ever replaced something this fiddly before? Aside from using smaller tools (I'm thinking of a watchmakers screwdriver etc.) how do I avoid hamfisting it?

Allo lads. Just thought I'd report back after a couple of months, in case anyone who looks at this thread wanted a followup.

>>26439

I'm extremely happy with it. It's an upgrade in every way, very few slow moments with apps, storage space fits every app I need and then some, and I really like the metal case. There's some smart UI upgrades that I'm quite fond of, too.

It was a good purchase, I'm hoping I can keep it in sound working order for as long as possible.

>>26436

This is a properly good product. I'd advise anyone to keep in mind length when you're buying, as the first one was too short. It doesn't hurt to have a spare I suppose. It's saved my MicroUSB connector from big "rips" of the charger out of the port several times already -- and I realise now I must have been tiredly mashing the poor thing every time I came home from work to put in on charge.

To be honest, I think it really should a standard on these phones, considering it's such a delicate part of the phone.

Unfortunately, they're technically illegal until 2025. Apple hold a patent on magnetic power connectors and will not grant a license to anyone else. Chinese cable manufacturers don't care, but phone manufacturers won't go near it because they'll be sued into the dark ages.

The Qi wireless charging standard is reasonably well-established and is now available on most flagship phones. I expect that mid-range phones will have wireless charging within the next couple of years. It's not as fast as wired charging, but it's a much neater solution.

I much prefer plugged-in quick charge to Qi. I don't want another peripheral I need to charge with, and with quick charge I only need to plug in for about half an hour a day.

Very nice lad. I got the cunts at Motorola to fix the damn thing under warranty (luckily it wasn't water damage just some wire or board needing "an adjustment", whatever that means (I'm assuming a wire came loose or something) which at least vouches for the water-proofness of the thing).

Now, all I need to do is find the time to move all my stuff back onto the phone that the bastards nice technicians factory reset back to infinity from this awful, awful "Lenovo K6 Vibe" that I bought in the interim. Honestly everything that could be wrong with a phone is wrong with this one despite the quite respectable specs (32gb internal storage, 3gb ram).

I miss my old Goole Nexus phones, I really do.

This. If you're buying it in from China on the cheap, then chances are you want to worry less about espionage and more about whether the thing will even work in the first place.

The Chinese direct market is very much polarised into two camps. At one end you have the bargain-bucket zero-fucks manufacturers who put out dirt cheap, low-quality kit. At the other end you have the players that take competition seriously and supply half-decent merchandise at surprisingly good value.

On a side note, one thing you definitely want to avoid buying from China is locks, for reasons entirely unrelated to their quality.

Nope, it's worse than that. Nobody has blanks for them.

In the West, there are relatively few manufacturers, and a number of standard profiles for keys, so a locksmith can stock a few hundred varieties of blank and be confident they can cut you a key if the two or three you get with the lock aren't enough.

In China, there are thousands of manufacturers, each with their own profiles, often using a new profile on every new product. While they're all usually happy to supply blanks, no product has enough of the market to be considered essential to a locksmith's arsenal, and so with potentially millions of possible blanks on the go, nobody bothers even trying. Though you do at least get at least half a dozen keys with your lock.

Praise be to Jesus for it has been many moons since I was forced to use Java but surely something like:

System.out.println(Arrays.toString((arr.getClass().getComponentType()[]) arr));

should work?

Either that or loop through the array and arr[i].toString() on each element, each class should really have its own toString() method ready for you to use.

Basically yes - but that's why java.lang.Arrays.toString() has all those same overloads.

An 'int' isn't an Object. However, an 'Integer' is - and you have easy conversion between the two types on-demand (this is called 'boxing' and the reverse 'unboxing' - https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java/data/autoboxing.html ).

So, if you don't want all those overloads, maybe start with an Integer[] instead (e.g. Integer[] ia = {1, 2, 3}; ) or convert from int[] to Integer[] using some crazy map func somewhere (IDK Java) before you make the call.

Also it's okay to have e.g. an ArrayList<Integer> and put ints in it rather than a plain int[]. Nowt wrong with the collections types.

... That's all I know. I use C# for a reason.

The reason being you missed the memo that MSFT killed .NET and burried it under a mountain of unsold Windows ME CDs ?

Your vertices are a little too well-connected.

Anyone fucking around with GDPR?

I've just found out that it will change the cookie law to require explicit consent. I've already come across one website that has thrown up a splash page to harvest my consent before it redirects to the page I actually want.

I don't care about cookies, but the problem here is that I have to enable scripts before I can click the button and visit the page I actually want. So if that gets rolled out across all websites it will defeat the point of me browsing without scripts in the first place. Grrrrr.

How do I report it anyway, I'm guessing the ICO doesn't yet have the infrastructure set up, as their website has a whole list of subjects to complain about but none are relevant.

I'm not sure that's how freely given consent is supposed to work.

26482 Replacing my WRT54G
I found a WRT54G in a skip about a decade ago, dried it out, installed Tomato on it and it's been working ever since. It still works just fine as a WiFi access point for my internet connection, but it's starting to fall flat for my in-house needs. The 1000Mbit LAN ports don't cut it anymore and same-network WiFi connections are lagging behind what's possible on even the cheapest devices out there now.

There are plenty of suggestions on them there interwebs, but I'm curious: do you lot have any suggestions or hands-on experience with more modern Open/DD-WRT-alike compatible WiFi routers?

Are other consumer routers similarly vulnerable? Is there a router that isn't leaky like a sieve?

Yes. Both home/small business and corporate.

For home or small business use you want OpenBSD with PF and a copy of https://www.amazon.co.uk/Book-PF-No-Nonsense-OpenBSD-Firewall/dp/1593275897/ or something very much like it.

Most corporate risk analyses assume that the network is compromised and work on segregating data, incident response, and "need to know" policies. In other words I wouldn't trust a Cisco more than a Juniper more than I would MS Word 2007 - they're all heaps of shit to begin with before we even start talking about bugdoors.

Running on what? Look for something small, fanless and entirely libre and OpenBSD compatible and options quickly shrink.

Can't you just throw OpenBSD on a rpi and be done with it? What do you need "libre" anything for? Everything you want in a routing / firewalling setup comes pretty much out of the box.

Of course if OpenBSD never got around to doing an ARM port just ignore my ignorance and try buggering around with iptables on a locked down Linux instead.

You can get loads of PFsense boxes on ebay.
