Well you see either he's actually into that of hipstery "nerd" culture in which case they both should die in a fire, or she's approaching his hobby with extreme shallowness and lack of understanding in which case it wasn't really effort but just a quick sweep through first e-shop in google search for nerds.
And she certainly put a fuckload of effort into showing off all of that rather than just having a picture saying "here's what I got my bf", she had to make a fucking powerpoint presentation out of it meticulously highlighting every present and packaging thereof. So the effort wasn't really for his sake but rather for her to feel good about herself.

I have a shit battery on my phone, do any battery savers actually work or are they placebo? And are there any ways to actually increase my battery life?

>>
>>50020716
what phone, if it has a removable battery you can probably get an extended battery for it.

If it's a sealed phone you probably should replace the original battery as if you have had it for 12+ months the battery is probably holding less charge than it did originally.

If you want to see a world with more proprietary shit like OSX, iOS, PS4 then by all means promote the BSD's, because that's what they're for.

The BSD license means companies have a great amount of free code on which to base their proprietary products, and of course this is what they do.

So even if Linux wasn't superior to the BSD's on a technical level, and even ignoring the fact that the entire ecosystem of FOSS desktop software is done by Linux developers which the BSD's then do half-assed ports of (because there is no desktop software coming from the BSD's, heck all the FreeBSD devs use OSX), Linux would still be a better choice because it is GPL licensed and so is most of it's userland.

The BSD's can continue to rot away while hoping the corporations they whore for will throw them some scraps.

Im gonna probably have to post that in /biz/ or in /a/, but I'll post here first.

Do you guys think a website which is like a convenient netflix just for animes could be a good idea?
Im not talking about some random streaming site, you would go onto the page, see the latest animes you watched, one click and you are where you last watched.
You would have dropdowns for each dub and sub, maybe a link to the corresponding manga and maybe something similiar like the spotify discover function.

Is there already something like that, or do you guys think that would be worth creating?

High-order distortion is much more objectionable due to negligible masking by the fundamental. Whether the absolute level of these peaks make them benign remains to be seen, but they are certainly not desirable.

DESKTOP THREAD
last one hit image limit

its very important to make sure to never miss a thread, always have anime in your desktop, always have pastel colours, always use windows (or linux, or 100% stock OSX ((its comfy))) always have borders or titlebars but not both, know the in memes, get with the community, download 4.5gigs of Ushi pics, and dont say bad things about peoples desktops because you are basically automatically an avatar-fag because you post your desktop the same all the time

I've got a neighbor who is half deaf, so she has 15 phones strewn about her house so she is always near one. Bad news for me because every time she gets a call, it's fucking loud and knocks out my internet. So, My most recent project is a single channel 2.4ghz jammer to block her shitty wireless phones from working while I am at home.
8 2.4ghz transmitters on a board the size of a credit card, with no battery yet cause I'm too stupid to find one that actually powers it without having a 3 foot working radius.
Anyone know a good Lion battery to fit my build that is low profile? The current is 90mAh(each) @5v, And I don't know how to calculate that but it's the specs from when I bought them.

Hi.

My PC is very old E6570, 4 gb of ram, 8600GTS video card. Video card is dying (thanks nvidia drivers)

I do not want to buy new pc, so my question is this. Should I buy cheapest new video card available (GF GT 210 512MB GDDR3) or get some older but more powerful secondhand card like 8800gt.

The thing is I don't really play video games.

My motherboard has PCI-E x16.

Thank you.
