Or is it just a coincidence

2019-08-28 14:24:58 UTC


2019-08-28 14:25:06 UTC

The K75 uses a generation two Luminus SBT90 Led. It's smaller than my BLFGT and Astrolux MF04S, but out throws both of them and even rivals the legendary Acebeam W30 Laser flashlight.

@Billy Yum Yum Two-By-Two the templates are user submitted and combined randomly

2019-08-28 14:33:47 UTC

Oh ok so someone just sent in the Ali emoji and it got added to the rotation

2019-08-28 14:40:10 UTC

no usbc and no bluetooth? 🀒

2019-08-28 14:41:15 UTC

if it was 200$

2019-08-28 14:41:18 UTC


2019-08-28 14:43:34 UTC

Bluetooth... *flashlight?*

2019-08-28 14:55:23 UTC

I have a Bluetooth flashlight

2019-08-28 14:55:31 UTC

It's called "my phone "

2019-08-28 14:58:46 UTC

2019-08-28 14:58:55 UTC

This is a soldering iron

2019-08-28 14:59:50 UTC

Without the tip it's also a respectable hot air blower

2019-08-28 14:59:55 UTC

And with the torch addon it's a... torch

2019-08-28 15:00:37 UTC

Mfw there was a time when there wasn't just a flashlight button on your phone, and you had to install spyware apps to enable it for you

2019-08-28 15:01:07 UTC

Yeah, and there was no permissions API

2019-08-28 15:01:22 UTC

So you just had to search along apps to find one that didn't have anything but the camera listed in permissions

Any knifesharpener fags here?

2019-08-28 15:06:40 UTC
2019-08-28 15:06:56 UTC

Got a constant angle jig?

2019-08-28 15:07:03 UTC


2019-08-28 15:07:12 UTC

I'm looking at this

2019-08-28 15:07:26 UTC

Half the price of an inferior kit from lansky

2019-08-28 15:07:35 UTC

Plus it's moddable, lots of yt vids about it

2019-08-28 15:07:41 UTC

I want to order more stones for it, diamond ones

2019-08-28 15:07:42 UTC

o i have that

2019-08-28 15:07:43 UTC

its shit

2019-08-28 15:07:45 UTC

if you have a thing to bolt it to i have heard those are decent

2019-08-28 15:08:00 UTC

Yeah, I'll screw it to some wood I have lying around

2019-08-28 15:08:03 UTC

in its stock configuration its basically unusuable

2019-08-28 15:08:06 UTC

Or plain sacrifice one of my desks

2019-08-28 15:08:21 UTC

and what windatica stated

2019-08-28 15:08:25 UTC

I know, you put the angle rod further from the base

2019-08-28 15:08:35 UTC

Add magnets, lube the rod, so on and so on

2019-08-28 15:08:56 UTC

So you haven't bolted yours down, @Windatica ?

2019-08-28 15:09:03 UTC


2019-08-28 15:09:12 UTC

you should definitely do that though

2019-08-28 15:09:13 UTC

and lube the rod

2019-08-28 15:09:19 UTC

Oh I'll lube the rod

2019-08-28 15:09:21 UTC

and you need a stopper somewhere

2019-08-28 15:09:23 UTC

on the rod

2019-08-28 15:09:29 UTC

Isn't one attached?

2019-08-28 15:09:42 UTC


2019-08-28 15:09:49 UTC

Nbd, I'll use hotglue or a zip tie

2019-08-28 15:09:52 UTC

literally put a ziptie or something there

2019-08-28 15:10:02 UTC

Chink minds think alike

2019-08-28 15:10:12 UTC

i guess other than that its OK

2019-08-28 15:10:16 UTC

could be better, could be worse

2019-08-28 15:10:21 UTC

But if you aren't satisfied with it, have you got anything better?

2019-08-28 15:10:27 UTC

I don't want to feed the lansky jew

2019-08-28 15:10:31 UTC

a basic stone + strop

2019-08-28 15:10:45 UTC

I tried and tried

2019-08-28 15:10:45 UTC

something like 400/1000 and a leather strop with green buffing compound goes a long way

2019-08-28 15:10:50 UTC

alright then ur shit

2019-08-28 15:10:51 UTC

My inferior hands just can't do it

2019-08-28 15:11:01 UTC

Yes, I am

2019-08-28 15:11:09 UTC

tried stones with angle guides ?

2019-08-28 15:11:23 UTC

And you mean the horrible hard as fuck green buffing compound?

2019-08-28 15:11:38 UTC

uh no?

2019-08-28 15:11:39 UTC

That just melts to wax if you strop vigorously?

2019-08-28 15:11:43 UTC

double no

2019-08-28 15:12:01 UTC

actually maybe

2019-08-28 15:12:14 UTC

if it becomes waxy and smooth that typically means you put too much compound

2019-08-28 15:12:24 UTC

and you'd have to either sand it off or scrape it off

2019-08-28 15:12:37 UTC

@Tervy I tried putting my knife in a vice and moving the stone, as opposed to the opposite

2019-08-28 15:12:47 UTC


2019-08-28 15:12:48 UTC


2019-08-28 15:13:19 UTC

Don't you ouch me, it worked much better

2019-08-28 15:13:32 UTC

It's just like a constant angle kit, without the kit and angle and constants

2019-08-28 15:13:42 UTC

This way I could actually sharpen a dull knife

2019-08-28 15:13:46 UTC

But not to factory level

2019-08-28 15:13:47 UTC

i have this

2019-08-28 15:13:49 UTC

a literal brick

2019-08-28 15:13:50 UTC

400/1000 stone

2019-08-28 15:13:51 UTC

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2003327923.html also there are these what use sunction cups for shit

2019-08-28 15:13:54 UTC

i will die before i finish this strop

2019-08-28 15:14:05 UTC

Nigga that's half a kilo

2019-08-28 15:14:13 UTC

alright whats the problem

2019-08-28 15:14:28 UTC

And there

2019-08-28 15:14:33 UTC

I can strop on my constant angle kit

2019-08-28 15:14:37 UTC

There is a leather "stone"

2019-08-28 15:15:19 UTC

So all in all, you have this kit I linked but you don't use it?

2019-08-28 15:15:23 UTC

You a vanilla stone and strop boy?

2019-08-28 18:37:57 UTC

Meanwhile I've sharpened 30 knives to razor sharpness in mere minutes

2019-08-28 18:38:18 UTC


2019-08-28 18:45:41 UTC

@Billy Yum Yum Two-By-Two can you buy me one for my birthday?

2019-08-28 18:54:15 UTC


2019-08-28 19:02:19 UTC


2019-08-28 19:33:08 UTC

@Billy Yum Yum Two-By-Two *knife fags S E E T H I N G, insisting they could have done it just as well, just as fast*

2019-08-28 19:36:06 UTC

Knife fags BTFO


2019-08-28 20:06:58 UTC

just sharpen your knifes on a table grinder

2019-08-28 20:09:20 UTC

Just run them under your sink tap and let water do the work lmao

2019-08-28 20:13:55 UTC

F-fuck you guys, enjoy your electric grinders when shit hits the fan! Long live the republic!

2019-08-28 20:17:31 UTC


2019-08-28 20:17:33 UTC

be frugal

2019-08-28 20:17:47 UTC

and sharpen your knife on the bottom of your coffee mug

2019-08-28 20:17:52 UTC


2019-08-28 20:23:10 UTC

I have 3 sharpening systems

2019-08-28 20:23:27 UTC

But I always considered the constant angle sharpening kit to be the best for very dull knives

2019-08-28 20:52:51 UTC

Withdrawal from the UPU doesn't effect small packet delivery under 1 kg there were already rate hikes in 2018 after USPS and China worked it out.

2019-08-28 20:53:05 UTC

Fan fucking tastic I see discord still can't scroll

2019-08-28 21:03:08 UTC

Still useful information, ty

2019-08-28 21:24:15 UTC

update: ILS tip is kinda shit

2019-08-28 21:24:23 UTC

heat transfer is fucking ass

2019-08-28 21:24:25 UTC


2019-08-28 21:24:28 UTC

didnt know in advance

2019-08-28 21:24:52 UTC

@Magnius be aware
get something like a B/BC/C for point soldering

https://www.hakko.com/english/tip_selection/series_t12_standard.html see here

2019-08-28 21:39:40 UTC

@johnfrum UPU what's this

2019-08-28 21:51:04 UTC

That doesn't even make sense, upu is not a face.

2019-08-28 21:52:07 UTC

Yes it is

2019-08-28 21:52:22 UTC

It's drooling

2019-08-28 22:57:35 UTC


2019-08-28 23:04:58 UTC

Awoo what's this

2019-08-29 04:49:08 UTC

So Taobao started doing something strange now for me. If I go to an item that they won't ship to the USA, such as https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z0d.6639537.1997196601.4.4f957484AYZXCF&id=547294219461 while logged in, it'll load the item page, and then immediately redirect to this:


2019-08-29 05:30:53 UTC

Is it like a work around page ior ust another error message?

2019-08-29 05:37:59 UTC
2019-08-29 05:38:41 UTC

When contacting Taobao customer service, they said it was something that the seller set on their items, and I should try to find another seller.

2019-08-29 05:44:15 UTC

I thought they didn't ship outside of china, period

2019-08-29 05:47:16 UTC

They do. if you can get past the Chinese, you can enter your address int he USA, and they've got automatic consolidation companies. I've seen 2. Zhongshan Cargo Logistics and Jiacheng International. you ship your items to one of them, and they repack it all, charge you for shipping, and send it to you

2019-08-29 05:47:21 UTC

the shipping cost is actually pretty reasonable

2019-08-29 05:49:01 UTC

The nice thing is, at least in my account, it's basically automatic. if I choose to check out, it'll ask me which logistics company I want to send to, and it'll take care of everythhing

2019-08-29 05:55:32 UTC


2019-08-29 05:55:45 UTC

Dis you wind up buying the engine?

2019-08-29 05:57:54 UTC


2019-08-29 05:58:01 UTC

No buying of engines occurred

2019-08-29 05:58:08 UTC


2019-08-29 05:58:15 UTC

That's actually another thing that auto-redirects to YOU CAN"T BUY THIS

2019-08-29 05:58:48 UTC

Plus, I really really don't want to know what the cost to fucking AIRMAIL an engine is

2019-08-29 06:00:04 UTC

But, I've ordered some other stuff, and that's going well.

2019-08-29 06:00:16 UTC

got a SCSI card I needed for a project, and a couple model cars.

2019-08-29 06:10:45 UTC

Why not boat ship It?

2019-08-29 06:11:25 UTC

You live near a major freshwater port, even if it is not as hopping as itn as.

2019-08-29 06:16:56 UTC

There doesn't seem to be any choice in Taobao for boat shipping

2019-08-29 06:17:27 UTC

both of the logistics companies ship by air

2019-08-29 06:28:58 UTC

You can always ask, they will probably just subcontract it out to a smaller forwarding company, cost more but it'll still be cheaper than airmail

2019-08-29 06:56:29 UTC

@onoderaSecurity why no love for the smaller D-Tips

2019-08-29 06:59:25 UTC

I got an email from taobao customer service about shipping that toolbox or an engine just now. "Dear customer:_As for the problem that you cannot place an order for the item, we check that the item cannot be ship because the item may contain sensitive words such as car parts, so the item is not allow to ship. _Sorry for any inconvenienec~_Best Regards"

2019-08-29 07:01:37 UTC

thank counterfeit protection and customs bullshit from that pretty much

2019-08-29 07:02:13 UTC

Yup. How annoying

2019-08-29 14:28:37 UTC

@Tervy this set i just ordered has a D4, D08 and D24

2019-08-29 14:28:39 UTC

might come in handy

2019-08-29 22:07:56 UTC

Anybody have experience shipping bows, crossbows or firearms?

2019-08-29 22:11:41 UTC


2019-08-29 22:12:29 UTC

In slightly after euro fear response

2019-08-29 22:13:20 UTC

I had to sign a special sending sheet for it BUT I shipped a quiver with arrows across the state

2019-08-29 22:13:52 UTC

(Australia with Australia Post)

2019-08-29 22:23:26 UTC

I was trying to figure out how I could send a crossbow from USA to NZ

2019-08-29 22:24:07 UTC

I called the Police Firearms agent and the Customs Arms Agent and both said its ok.

2019-08-29 22:27:32 UTC

The postal companies are starting to get really anal about what can and cannot be shipped so I want to buy a crossbow now before any new law sets in.

2019-08-29 23:06:07 UTC

got a shitton of items

2019-08-29 23:06:23 UTC

Screen protector for K20 Pro, there were 2 in package

2019-08-29 23:06:34 UTC

1 was damaged in transit, the other one I fucked uo applying

2019-08-29 23:06:46 UTC

A metal and glass case for the K20 Pro

2019-08-29 23:06:59 UTC

that shit is huge and it's so satisfying to hold

2019-08-29 23:07:20 UTC

it also came with complementary screen protector nd camera protector

2019-08-29 23:07:34 UTC

I used both since I fucked up applying the one I bought

2019-08-29 23:07:55 UTC

2 more QCY T1S for friends

2019-08-29 23:08:07 UTC

a xiaomi wiha screwdriver set

2019-08-29 23:08:18 UTC

and Moondrop Spaceship

2019-08-29 23:52:56 UTC


2019-08-30 00:22:32 UTC


2019-08-30 00:27:34 UTC

@DarkWorld25 Is the metal case the Love Mei case? I got one for my Mi Mix 2, and while it makes my phone fatter than my ass, it's a lot cozier to use that way.

2019-08-30 00:27:52 UTC

@Iren Masot no clue lmao

2019-08-30 00:27:59 UTC

I bought it off taobao

2019-08-30 00:28:15 UTC

Here's a pic


2019-08-30 00:28:36 UTC


2019-08-30 00:28:36 UTC


2019-08-30 00:28:39 UTC

Actually not bad with the clear back window

2019-08-30 00:28:44 UTC


2019-08-30 00:28:51 UTC

How well doesn it handle bumps and bruises?

2019-08-30 00:28:54 UTC

Brushed aluminium I think

2019-08-30 00:28:56 UTC


2019-08-30 00:29:06 UTC

I feel like it can withstand more than a Nokia

2019-08-30 00:29:18 UTC

The Love Mei I got could be used to bludgeon someone to death

2019-08-30 00:29:58 UTC

Just an extra CM of rubber around all edges, and a big rubber patch on the back to keep it from sliding all the fuck around

2019-08-30 00:34:02 UTC

Yeah dude

2019-08-30 00:34:56 UTC

Phone has a six inch screen. Maybe you can see how much bugger this damn case is?


2019-08-30 00:35:05 UTC

It's so much better to have that fat bezel, though

2019-08-30 00:35:24 UTC


2019-08-30 00:35:29 UTC

My case is smaller than yours

2019-08-30 00:35:35 UTC

But holy crap the extra thicc corners

2019-08-30 00:35:44 UTC

I can bludgeon someone to death

2019-08-30 00:38:36 UTC

Tfw no brick case <:pepeturt:499291994649133067>

2019-08-30 00:38:50 UTC

Diwhy it

2019-08-30 00:39:04 UTC

What like hollow out a brick?

2019-08-30 00:39:05 UTC

Tape your phone to a brick, bitch, you won't

2019-08-30 00:39:10 UTC

Hot glue gun and dremel

2019-08-30 00:39:11 UTC


2019-08-30 00:42:20 UTC

@basker Just get a brick case if you want one, just be ready for your phone to not be the beanstalk sticc you once knew and loved. Took my phone out to clean it, and flashed Android 9 over Android 7 around the same time. Basically feels like I just unboxed a brand-new phone.

2019-08-30 00:42:52 UTC

Except for the fucking glass chip out of the bottom corner of the screen, which is why I got a brick case to begin with πŸ˜‚

2019-08-30 00:43:22 UTC

I don't think there's a case available, pixel 2xl

2019-08-30 00:44:29 UTC

I guess ottorbox

2019-08-30 00:45:15 UTC

Check around Ali and others; maybe you find something

2019-08-30 01:06:42 UTC

@Iren Masot that Minecraft clock is very cringe

2019-08-30 01:07:05 UTC


2019-08-30 01:07:31 UTC

any decent compact fishing equiptment I can buy to take on hikes?

2019-08-30 01:07:57 UTC

I thought you would have more complaints about brick case or Pop Team Epic.

2019-08-30 01:13:05 UTC


2019-08-30 01:13:11 UTC

he didnt get the Miku edition

2019-08-30 01:23:52 UTC

what miku edition

2019-08-30 01:24:34 UTC

Got nova launcher prime just so I could hide all the Xiaomi apps. Downloaded all of Google's shit to replace the Xiaomi defaults.

Rather uncle Google spying on me than daddy Xi

2019-08-30 01:26:35 UTC

Daddy Xi's is built right into the phone

2019-08-30 01:32:53 UTC

Dump MIUI, best choice I ever made

2019-08-30 01:33:53 UTC

i think only the redmi note 4x had a miku edition

2019-08-30 01:36:52 UTC

I still want to buy a v20 off ebay

2019-08-30 01:36:56 UTC

For use as a dap

2019-08-30 01:37:13 UTC

Still considering it I mean

2019-08-30 01:41:23 UTC

i have a v20, its nice

2019-08-30 01:41:57 UTC

the quad dac thing is nice even if only for the fact that it makes the volume levels more granular

2019-08-30 01:41:59 UTC

I like MIUI

2019-08-30 02:09:20 UTC

So do you mean you want a whole separate cell phone just to drive a pair of headphones? You might want to check around /g/ to hear about some dedicated music players. Stuff like the Sansa Clip is still in use by fans; there are new products being made in the same vein to cater to users who want the same type of device.

2019-08-30 02:16:45 UTC

I can vouch for the sansa clip(+)

2019-08-30 02:16:50 UTC

install rockbox on it and you're good to go

2019-08-30 02:21:56 UTC

>still being able to get Sansa Clip+ in 2019

2019-08-30 02:22:03 UTC
