Nice knife. Intend to cut your ears to hit your headphones better?

I suggest you get yourself some HD598/599 instead. They're comfortable AF.
Are you sure? I mean it's Sony. So it gotta be good right?

Also I need more opinions.

Any Android phones on the market other than Google Pixel that provide a near stock experience? I hate the shitty user interfaces phone manufacturers make.

Pick between the 6P or the 3 or 3T desu

How many charge cycles would it take before a lithium polymer battery to degrade?

oh, forgot to add that the chart is for Li-Ion, but Li-Po is similar, just didn't find a good multi-load chart in a short period
"I've never made it though without biting, ask Mr. Owl."
the world may never know
Like >>59570431 said, it's not easy to know.

I would trust that on average high quality ones will be good for around 300 cycles before they start losing significant Wh capacity.

This is why I will never buy phones with unremovable batteries ever again.
They start degrading immediately. What you want to know is how many cycles (and under what conditions) it takes to lose x% capacity.

It's usually ~ 500-1000 cycles under ideal conditions to lose 20% capacity.

After using Linux for years and years I finally have to use a Windows computer again for college. Sadly they're making us use proprietary software that doesn't really work well with Wine.
Anyhow, is there a WM for Windows (or any other software) that would replicate something like i3wm or awesomeWM on Windows? If not, a different way I could get the same functionality? For instance, mod+shift+q is way more comfortable and makes more sense than alt+f4 to kill a focused Window. I have thought about setting up autohotkey to run similar commands/keybinds but it won't be the same and it'll probably interfere with already present shortcuts & keybinds on Windows. If AHK DOES work, I guess i could configure to use Windows 10's window snapping & other features to somehow replicate the WM, but i'd like to know if that would even work.Any help appreciated.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.
Thank you Mr. Stallman.

I am writing a card-game and I have to design the trump, which means if certain suit is a trump, then it can beat every other card.

  enum cardsuit             { SPADES, HEARTS, DIAMONDS, CLUBS };

Therefore 0, 1, 2, 3. Is it possible to set a random thing out there as -1, saving the other values? Like 0, 1, -1, 3; etc.
Why don't you just add trump as the fifth suit?
fuck off with your /pol/ shit
It has to be chosen among existing ones. I get the first card out of deck, checking its suit, and what I get becomes trump.
If hearts is trump, therefore it can beat every card but hearts with higher rank.

64gb is enough if you don't do anything with your computer.

In which case you could have spent a quarter of the money that you actually spent on the Surface and had just as much utility.

What the hell do you need a frontend for?

It's a fucking video player, not a browser. mpv has an OSD for selecting subs, audio tracks and seeking. What else do you need?
I've used SMPlayer since 2007 on both *nix-like and Windows OS.
it's pretty comfy desu.
>SMPlayer integrates better with KDE, allows you to search for subtitles without leaving the player and has literally all of the functionality of MPV.
mpv can search for subtitles without leaving too, my fag.
it has a nice dynamic range compressor filter that mpv doesn't have

I have one of those and prefer my G403 because it's a lot lighter. Definitely less tiring on the hand.
But I miss all of the buttons.
We have these at work they're actually pretty amazing. I use a g403 at home.


Hey /g/,

I'm an Arch Linux user but for school purposes I had to install Windows. I could choose between 7 and 10, I chose seven 7 and I need your help.

What are the most important tweaks and rices I can't miss? Any help is appreciated, thanks.

turn off all of your graphics so that it looks like windows 95 (this makes your computer twice as fast already). And then set comic sans as your system font.

Hey, he wants his privacy, and this is one way to get it. And I think he also wants to hide from his ISP, now that they can sell his information. And don't forget the American three letter agencies. Though, they might as well just hack the OS and track his keystrokes.
Does chrome have a vertical tab extension that doesn't use another window?
They should remove Ghostery & Disconnect since uBlock Origin has their filters.
