When internet is so bad that 720p video stalls it in 2017 you know your ISP is beyond salvation. Now video is in 480p and still slow speeds. Jul 23, 2017 at 11:56 PM

      WiFi is bad. Streaming in 720i is too much for my connection. Thus I buy my series on DVD when I can. I am going viber in the near future...

        UBNT has cheap access points that have been rock solid. (I have a single UAP AC LR serving a 2 storey brick house) Mine is reaching about 100D of uptime now, although I'll reset it to upgrade the firmware soonish.

        This of course only makes sense if wired is rock solid and wireless is flaky.

        I've have ubiquity solutions, eero, orbi, etc. The reason I like Google wifi is there's an app and my wife can easily use it. Is she working at home? She can open the app and set her computer to priority so she gets super high quality video conferencing and any DSD or high bitrate PCM I'm streaming to work doesn't affect the quality of her connection.

        Internet connection is inconsistent. WiFi through the house is inconsistent. Some moments you cannot watch on-line video in 720i, some moments 1080i online video is fine. More the former than the latter and I am too annoyed.

        Even newspaper websites load slowly. That is not good...

        Changeling had an old Siemens E88CCa from 1962, the Halske. Coupled to the Vali 2, I could hardly believe my ears. This small combination sounds beyond good.

        Try find a good one or even a matched pair. The supplies of these and similar tubes are limited and the prices indicate that. Not everyone wants to spend this kind of money on a small 9pin tube...

        A good Siemens/Telefunken/... E288CCa which comes close is more affordable.

        The Vali 2 is too much fun. Even if I upgrade, the Vali 2 remains. It is like the Koss Portapro of tube amplifiers if you ask me. The best no. Fun, hell yeah!

        welcome to the tube rollers club! I've got one waiting for me at my PO Box an another due by Friday :D, Fun is a bit of an understatement... I think madness is more accurate

        Even after I found my "best" tube I still can't fight the urge to try others...

        At least the story theme is well implemented. The manga remains better but updates are slow. The old 2D series was better animated...

      Getting used to the Vali 2. Music sounds more involving. Tipsy maybe but after two wines music tends to sound better for me. Metal \m/

      Sony RX100 tested. For a compact camera it feels way more professional than its tiny size indicates. Making your own settings is easy...

        Focusses fairly quickly and the flash mechanism means you can 'bounce' it manually (by pulling back) which helps. Higher ISOs are less noisy than most point and shoots (and all phones save like the Panasonic CM1) and work well enough. It's not going to win a DSLR, but it's a lot more convenient and less obstrusive.

        I have had the RX100 Mk3 for the past 2 years and love it! Great point and shoot with auto+ mode if you are in a hurry. 1080P video. Using the built-in viewfinder is a treat. Great for low light conditions.

        28 mm, F1.8 to F2.8 you can tackle the darkness with ease. After 70mm the RX100 I has trouble focusing. The controls can be set to your liking but there are some compromises due to the compact design. This is a keeper...

        "10.000 Days" is intense. Last time I felt like this was after "Black Star" and revisiting King Crimson. This is on the level of Beethoven's 5th Symphony. This is rare. Grief and anger cry and growl at the same time. How the guitar weeps...

        Fuck school, I have to do it my way. I tried to be regular student which was already hard enough for me. No more student life and student debt. Pragmatic solutions mix with my own approach to proving that I am capable in what I want to become. It will take some years of consistent effort...

    I am a passionately curious person.

    Few things keep me sane: my loved ones, my music and my hobbies. Few is almost an understatement here...
