I switched from Lightroom to [RawTherapee](https://rawtherapee.com/) around 6 months ago, and haven't looked back. If you know what you're...

I've read through CloudFlare's [quite detailed explanation](https://blog.cloudflare.com/warp-technical-challenges/) of WARP and I can't...

I mean this will still likely run stuff a decent bit better than a Pi (pi3 at least, don't have experience with a pi4), and at $50 it's...

People seem to have mixed results. I get good speeds the majority of the time, though occasionally I have to try a few different servers....

A powerful computer really isn't necessary for basic programming. Many similar courses use single board systems like arduinos, which are...

Interesting article on that [here](https://www.anandtech.com/show/2624/debunking-power-supply-myths/3). Seems like there's a relatively...

Well if you've talked to them directly then I'd believe what they said. It's certainly possible that either I was mistaken or there was a...

Those addicted to audio sales are funny things... I check them fairly regularly and often there are a lot more items on sale during the...

Ah well, 1100 is still a great price for the M9. I didn't post anything myself at the time since thought I saw a post on the Sony sale deal...
27/08/2019 - 12:04
From memory the M9 was $999 and the Z1R $1600. This was during their 'sony sale' earlier this year. I was pretty tempted by the M9 but...
27/08/2019 - 10:37
Also worth noting that a few months ago the IER-M9 and IER-Z1R were also on sale for about half price. So for those with their eyes on...

It's a way to sort and stream your own media. It's designed for those who have a large library of files that they want to be able to access...

Assuming he means drop.com, formerly Massdrop. They have a lot of well regarded headphones there. Everything has to ship from the US...

Gotta love Lachlan. One of the few audio reviewers that I actually trust the opinion of. For those who don't know he makes short reviews on...
23/08/2019 - 10:40
I agree, I wish manufacturers and sellers were more specific. Notebookcheck.net is my go-to for detailed specs and numerical testing. They...

I have a pair of K7XXs, a variant of the Q701 design, which run fine straight from my phone/laptop. I also have a Dragonfly Black v1.5, a...

I also enjoy a good nativity play. You seem like you'd make a great sheep for the manger scene!

I'm guessing it's only a very small percentage of their total users that actually use cashbacks.

I've used nord for a few years and in my experience the speed losses are more or less negligible on my 50 mbps home fibre connection...

Yeah I was invested in lossless audio until I actually blind ABX tested myself. I could identify 128 kbps mp3s from 24 bit losssless 100%...

Why is a "single gigabyte" your point of comparison? I was meaning that a plate with engraved names would likely be much smaller physically...
23/05/2019 - 21:48
According to this article (https://www.space.com/your-name-on-mars-2020-rover.html) the names aren't stored digitally but are physically...

Ah good to know. 1 week isn't too bad actually

These new 'elligible items' deals don't have set expiry dates... Just whenever eBay feels like it

You missed out on the $15 cashback on cash rewards atm for diamond drop earrings as well... What a bugger
10/05/2019 - 18:16
Yeah can confirm LG updates are pretty poor. I have a G5 and while it is from 2016, I would've expected better than them giving up support...

No problem :)

Nord has a command-line linux application (https://nordvpn.com/download/linux/). It's very basic but it works ('nordvpn c' connects to the...

As others have said, Kobo devices play nicely with overdrive so libraries are definitely an option. I'd also recommend checking out...
