I would like a nice chair to comfortably waste my life in front of computer screens on. Where's a good place to try out a few? What lesser known options should I know of? Are Aerons entirely a meme at this point? Budget doesn't matter.

I'm in the market for some new headphones but I can't decide on which ones. I want to replace my old Audio Technica ATH-AD700s which have finally kicked the bucket after 9 years of use and numerous replacements of the headphone wire (this time the break seems to be somewhere in the middle of the headband, and I can't resolder it without breaking the headphones).

I've been looking at the AKG K702s as a replacement, but are they really worth the £130? It seems to me that the placebo effect and confirmation bias play a pretty big role in the perceived quality of a set of headphones, but I haven't come across any concrete evidence like blind listening tests that would back that idea up. Are human ears even sensitive enough to perceive a difference between something like a well-regarded pair of £30 Superlux 681s and a well-regarded pair of £130 AKG 702s? It's very difficult to tell the marketing dross apart from tangible technical differences.

They're large, heavy and have relatively low clamping force, so they'll probably fall off your head. I'd suggest some inexpensive in-ears from Xiaomi or Betron; if you can't stand in-ears, then I'd suggest looking for some "sport" headphones with a more secure headband design.

If you want an amp/dac that powers pretty much anything with minimal setup fuss, try JDS Labs’ The Element. Buy it once and forget it forever. As for headphones, well it depends what sound you want but you can’t go wrong with HD600s. Or 650 is alright too, bit more bass but not as accurate. None of that stuff is cheap but it’s not unreasonable. Audio stuff is expensive . But get to your end game quick with that and you can forget it all. Hopefully.

I ended up buying the Philips Fidelio X2s for 130 squid back in August. They ticked all the right boxes and since they're 32 ohms, I don't really need a headphone amp to get the best out of them. Very happy with them so far.

I also bought a pair of closed-back Superlux HD-662s which are pretty decent for £25, but the level of comfort is nowhere near as good. I think Superluxes are mainly aimed at the Chinese market so maybe they design them for smaller Chinese heads. It's either that or I just have an usually big head.

I use my headphones for gaming and it's important that I can hear stuff like the footsteps of other players.

The right ear of my old JVC HA-RX500s has stopped working, so by way of replacement I unboxed the Sony MDR-570LPs that I got as a Xmas gift years ago. They are awful, in no way approaching the sound quality of the JVCs. This will definitely affect my performance.

If you knew what day of the year it was and time of night you could definitely do it.

The time of night you could probably make some sort of estimate of based on the position of the moon after knowing the time of year. The time of year you could make a 'good enough' estimate based on which stars are present in the sky for a broad estimate and then use the phase of the moon to calculate a more exact date.

I have really no idea how precise any of this navigation would be based on eyeballing, probably good enough to get you across an ocean and in the direction of the right port.

If you had precision measuring tools and a sophisticated computerized star chart you could probably calculate your exact position on the earth.

It was not really known how to calculate longitude accurately until around the 18th century. The major way people determined it was by using latitude, speed and direction to estimate it using the ships vectors of movement against a known position.

The flash memory is partitioned into different areas.

>>26220
It depends on what you're flashing. IIRC flashing stock images tends to reformat & wipe everything, but going to custom firmware often preserves things. Depends on what the upgrade script written in the image does.

Stock recovery... I dunno, I'm less confident that would wipe everything. I think recovery is a separate 'partition', so it'd *probably* be okay...

If your TWRP is still functional, I'd use the backup functionality if I were you to take a complete copy of your flash memory before you start. Just get everything backed up before you start; better to be safe than sorry.

20156 Vaporisers
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.

I picked up the Endura T20s Kit. Pretty cheap but I've had no problems at all and it seems well built.

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:

https://www.gosmokefree.co.uk/aspire-evo-75-kit-free-e-liquid-free-delivery/

But I would be interested to know if there's anything a bit more exciting out there, or if you lads have any good ideas on separate tanks/boxes.

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.

http://www.joyetech.com/product/evic-aio/
https://www.gearbest.com/mod-kits/pp_590267.html

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

https://www.gearbest.com/mod-kits/pp_335143.html

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've recently set up an SSD booting computer with HDD storage, which was pretty fun, but it took a long time considering I've never fucked with computers before. What other interesting shit can I do?

I've been thinking of maybe upgrading my graphics card, motherboard and CPU, probably installing more RAM, but I don't really have the money right now and can't figure out what is compatible with what. Even finding which is the most recent products of the various manufacturers is confusing. Besides ,I find I'm becoming bored of browsing the internet all day every day. Are there any cool things I could do with computers that doesn't revolve around increasing performance of games/internet? What can I use this computing power for?

Making a blind system for my window with a light detector that opens them in the morning would be pretty cool but I think that's more in the field of circuitry than computing.

So without further ado; Noob tier computer projects. What would you recommend?

I work in IT support, and come across this sort of thing all the time. The likelihood is there's a problem with the motherboard or power circuitry like >>26196 said.

Still, I would recommend unplugging the battery, holding the power switch down to flush the capacitors (does this actually work?), then reconnect the battery. In my experience, there's usually a cable to connect the battery to motherboard - it will have a plastic multi-pin female connector. See if you can find it.

Shit we have an IT guy here? Help me out. My Windows 8.1 box keeps turning itself back on randomly after shut down. I've gotten into the habit of physically pressing the O button on the PSU, so it doesn't start whirring in the dark while I'm trying to sleep and scare the shit out of me. What could it be? I'll admit just now I found my mouse and keyboard were both set to wake the computer in Device Manager but I imagine that's because that resets itself after I keep having to unplug them and plug them back into other USB ports after they randomly stop working. Christ this PC is full of demons, I guess that's what comes of building it yourself. Anyway apart from the mouse and keyboard is there anything else it could be?

You're probably done. I'd also check the BIOS to see if there's anything in there that's set to turn the PC on. This isn't what comes of building it yourself, by the way. These are not default settings, so at some point you've installed something that changed them.

I'd also chuck Win8 for 7 or 10 (depending on how deluded you are about the disparity of Microsoft's intrusion of your privacy on either).

Is it possible to associate PDF file types with Chrome but give them a different icon from HTML files? I had them like that but had to reinstall Chrome. Now PDF files have the same Chrome icon as HTML files and it says the file type is "Chrome HTML Document." When I edit the name or icon with Types.exe, Default Programs Editor or FileTypesMan, changes I make to PDF associations happen to HTML files too and vice versa.

Last time, I gave PDFs a separate icon with Types.exe but I think that might have been on Windows 7 before I upgraded to 10.

26181 Finding a CRT
I'm after a ~21" CRT TV, with a regular SCART 15.6kHz RGB input. Used to be you'd find them at dumps and markets and such but I haven't come across one in a while and the recycling place I went to today didn't have any. I can't find any near me on Gumtree or Ebay, which is puzzling as there must be fucking millions of these things around.

Am I being a mong? Where do I find one?

I'm not that fussed about how good the display is. That said, I'm expecting to have to go through a few to get one with halfway decent convergence and geometry, but it's surprising how well many CRTs have lasted, given the astonishing engineering precision required of them, and I have fixed CRT monitors in the past so I can take a crack at adjustments depending on the design. (To preempt the warnings: I do know how to do so without grabbing the flyback, discharging one of the capacitors and electrocuting myself, or snapping the neck and having a vacuum tube explode in my face.)

Most of the latter are also widescreen which is not what I'm after, and some of the last ones before plasma/LCD took over completely have digital image processing in them, with shoddy ADC, and early real-time digital image processing chipsets that added noticeable artefacts and latency. I used to have a WEGA that did this (it was great TV for movies at the time, but the image processing was particularly noticeable on old "240p" games, and couldn't be fucking disabled) and it drove me nuts.

One's popped up on Freecycle so should have something to play around with soon. Thanks, >>26182.

I'm trying to get a domain name I can use as an email but I'm an idiot and I'm confused.

I'm looking to get 4 email addresses I can use , say bob@family.com. I don't want to just have a forwarding service to bob@gmail.com, I want to login to an actual mailbox client or webmail login and use that specific email to login.

I'm not interested in web hosting.

Is this possible, and if so where is the best place to do it? I've had a look about and I'm still none the wiser.

Cheers.

Easy enough to do, but not necessarily for free. You're looking at hosting your own email server, or using an off-the-shelf cloud solution like Google's G Suite or Microsoft Exchange online.

I was lucky enough to get a Google Apps account back when they had a non-expiring 5 user trial plan. Still use it for all my domains.

Most domain resellers will offer basic hosting packages, web hosting, email hosting, or a combination.

I know it would be frowned upon to just call you grandad, but I'm curious as to the exact use case you're trying to satisfy here.

26112 Neural networking
I figured it was time for me to drag my arse into the twenty first century and at least learn how to program a neural network. It doesn't seem that complicated, but it occurs to me that I'll need quite a bit of training data.

Where can I go to get piles and piles of files? I was wondering whether I could train an AI reading a bunch of novels in text file format and then set it loose trying to write semi-intelligible sentences. Even if it's not text files, it seems that you need loads of well formatted raw data to train any AI and this is one of the things tech companies are super hungry for these days. Any other sort of raw, open, free data would suffice if anyone's got any hints.

I was thinking about writing it in BASIC (which is the only language I ever properly learnt, at the tender age of five, and so has stuck with me my whole life) or maybe in an Excel/LibreOffice Calc/Google Sheets spreadsheet (in which case free .CSV files might be preferable) because it'd be more visually comprehensible. I can just about read C++, I could probably write a neural network with it if I applied myself.

Has anyone else worked with neural networks? Are they difficult to program? What's the best language?

As far as I understand it, NNs work much better in object-oriented languages, so perhaps try Visual BASIC.NET instead of straight BASIC.

26103 Mobile Ad Blocker
Is there such a thing as a decent ad-blocker for Android?

It's occured to me that ads are responsible for probably half of my entire data usage. I spend more time scrolling past fucking reams of obnoxious clickbait bullshit than I do reading the actual article sometimes. Some sites are worse than others, but I can't exactly pick and choose what sites I visit based on that. Not to mention those cocking Youtube ads.

Being on a shitty tarrif, it simply angers me to think that I am wasting data so that these bastards can shovel vomit into my eyeballs. I'm actually paying for them to advertise to me. How do I stop it?

I was about to say I think advertising companies should be made to pay for data that they use when sending you adverts, then it occured to me that that would violate net netrality, then it occured to me 'Is net neutrality protest actually a front for online advertising groups?'

If you use the app Newpipe, you don't get any ads. It's a lightweight YT frontend.

As to apps, I use Adaway (needs root) blocks through hosts file I think. Also uBlock origin on Firefox.

Doesn't Brave show you its own ads though?

At least until Google gets monopoly penis envy again and blocks it because of a "broken user experience", which is in no way whatsoever a euphemism for not being able to cream off their ad money.

If you want to be really thrifty about it you could use a text-only browser. I've been surprised at how useable it's been when I've been stuck with flaky GPRS on a train or whatever.

25953 Cyber security and Python
Any recommendations for books/resources on cyber security? The recent hackings got me curious, and I have been reading around it since. Something more under the hood type of book for a noive.

Also I picked up Python again. I learn best by doing small projects. Any resources for something like that would be appreciated too.
