Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread Thread Comrade 04/23/2020 (Thu) 10:12:47 No. 1337
Thread for questions that don't deserve their own thread. I wanna buy some headphones to go outside i don't want to spend more than 100€ on them. I want them to be mostly durable and secondly to have good sound quality, also i don't want to look like a jackass while wearing them, any suggestions?
Waste of a GET, you couldn't even include an opening picture.
How well do Wacom tablets and Clip Studio Paint work on Linux?
>>1337 Shiiit dude 100 euros is not much for some good headphones, in the UK at least. Do you want bluetooth? Over ear or on ear?
>>1625 For my own tablet (Wacom Bamboo) I have found it actually easier to use on my Linux distro (Mint). Which is to say, I didn't need to install any drivers like I did on Win 10 and they seem be work just as well as the official ones. The only downside is that I can't seem to turn off the finger-tracking, but that isn't a big deal. Also, Clip Studio Paint does not work on Linux. There is likely a way to emulate it through Wine, but I haven't tried it yet. If you need a comparable art program for Linux, i'd recommend 'Krita' which is a free, open-source and pretty much just like Clip but without the outline/halftone layer options and a slightly annoying text editor.
>>1634 I'm in the EU, don't care about bluetooth and on ear.
>>1645 In my experience, Sony deliver a pretty great audio-price-durability balance. I had some MDR-XB950B1 which delivered pretty great sound, but weren't too comfy since I wear glasses too. Used em for the gym every day for a year, worked fine so quite durable. Try get one with flexible bits that join the speakers to the band though since that's where most breaks will occur. For your price range I'd probably recommend the lower end over ear version though, MDR-XB650BT (I don't know what retard comes up with these names).
>>1650 Thanks, the names are indeed retarded.
>>1638 Thanks. I have an Intuos so I suppose it'll work just fine too. There is indeed a way to emulate CSP that I found: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=250223&p=1345470#p1345470 The problem is that I have a free 2 year trial of the full version and I don't know how that'll work out. Would I need to pirate it after all?
>>1733 Oh and regarding Krita, I'll probably switch to it when they add some more features or once my trial expires, so thanks for the suggestion
>>1734 What's missing from Krita?
>>1736 Krita doesn't have the awesome halftone layer mask that Clip has (which instantly converts a layer to black halftone). More importantly, the text tools are really awkward, way worse than any other program i've used (it's hard to explain). Apart from that it is fantastic.
Is anyone else having problems with cankakucomplex or is it just me? I can only open it on Tor after going to advanced and giving permission to "take the risk" and open the site, however when I click on the images they give me a blank page and only opening the image html separately gives the image itself. Tor tells me my computer clock is set for July 3rd, yet my onscreen calendar is correctly giving me July 2nd so what the fuck is happening? https://chan.sankakucomplex.com/?tags=monster_strike%20neon_genesis_evangelion&page=2
>>1337 rock zircon. if you don't mind in-ears. in general, when I did research some time ago, conseus was not to go for brands If you are no audiophiliac. best headphones I ever had, beating my former Sennheiser easily. other Chinese low budget choices seem to be valid as well. have a question as well. what is your suggestion for an ebook reader? don't fancy kindle
Is it possible to download copyright-blocked YouTube videos that aren't available in any country? Those YouTube Music bastards blocked this one version of a song that had millions of views that I can't find anywhere else, just for the benefit of the official and shorter upload. Could youtube-dl be enough to get it or is the video gone forever in cases like this?
>>3677 You'd have to have a VPN to a country that can watch it, otherwise it's gone.
>>3678 >You'd have to have a VPN to a country that can watch it Yeah, I think that's impossible. I just tried with ytdl and it says "Unable to extract video data". Strangely I can still see the thumbnail on invidio.us (but it's unplayable) I guess my only option is to reach out to the uploader and ask them to send me the song if they still have it.
Hi /tech/ This might be an odd question but I just had this idea Q: Is there some way to collectively keep track of 'plans' made up by the collective in a given chat group? Say we're three in a group-chat, we decide to do x thing on y date a month from now - is there some application that's designed for this scenario? Wouldn't it basically have to be part of the chat-program to not pose a security risk? Have you ever used a chat program that has this function?
>>4004 Have one person read chat and write down the plan.
feels > reels
>>4006 How about I bounce your head off the fucking table you worthless cunt and then we'll see how you feel about my reels? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixZ63siO55g
>>1337 I have a pair of Thinksound in ears that are pretty good for the money, I think they were about £60, although in ears never really compare to over ears, they sound about as good as koss porta pros which are on ear headphones that cost like £20 I used £15 redmi airdots most of the time though, bluetooth meme is so convenient even the sound quality is pretty bad
