Top 20 Best Compressors Of All Time - Attack Magazine
Their comments on the Alesis 3630 (which is what Try from My Life in Gaming uses:)
“Although it offers both flexibility (dual channel VCA-based peak/RMS compression plus two independent noise gates) and an entry-level price point, the 3630 has been the bane of many producers’ lives since its introduction two decades ago. There are numerous common complaints. It introduces distortion. It has a nasty habit of making everything sound dull and lifeless. The channels are often badly matched, rendering them useless for stereo applications. It adds noise.

“So why does it make the list? Because it basically defined the pumping sidechain compression sound which became a trademark of French house in the late 90s and conquered the world shortly afterwards.”

Which HDMI Cable Should I Use to Hitch My 4K Player to a 1080p HDTV? | Sound & Vision
(On buying an HDMI cable to connect 4K sources:)
“Before I get to your questions, let’s review the basics of HDMI cables and their capabilities. First, there’s no such thing as an HDMI 1.3b or HDMI 2.0 cable. Instead of being linked with a particular version of the HDMI specification (e.g., HDMI 1.4), an HDMI cable is instead labeled by its capabilities.

“A Standard HDMI cable will support up to 1080i/720p high-definition video and multichannel audio. A High Speed HDMI cable can support 4K video with high dynamic range and multichannel audio. Both Standard and High Speed HDMI cables are also available in a separate versions with Ethernet support. Oh, there are also Premium High Speed HDMI Cables, but that’s something of a marketing gimmick to sell pricey cables.

“Since you’re using an Ultra HD Blu-ray player in your system, I recommend buying a High Speed HDMI cable. The cable itself won’t perform any downscaling of the 4K video on Ultra HD Blu-ray to 1080p resolution; the player does that. To set things up properly, simply select the 1080p output option in the player’s video setup menu and signals in the correct format will be sent to the TV.”

Dahle 550 Paper Cutter | Cool Tools
“Until a couple of years ago I had struggled with different inexpensive paper cutters, but I kept finding myself going to Kinko’s and using the cutters there. Then I got smart and jotted down the brand name, Dahle 550 Rolling Trimmer Paper Cutter *$148), and bought one online.

“What I appreciate most about this cutter is that I never have to change blades, or deal with dull blades, because it’s self-sharpening. The steel rotary blade contained within the plastic safety housing moves across a stationary blade that extends the length of the cutting platform. This action hones the rotary blade, which remains constantly sharp. It’s also set up for wall mounting, which is ideal in my home office layout.”

Here's Why I've Already Spent $28,000 On My 2005 Ford GT - YouTube
In this video, Doug Demuro vouches for Pentagon Federal Credit Union (around 1:43), such as for getting financing for a car. Apparently you just need to make a donation to a military charity to become a member.

“They seem to be able to finance anything.”

(Also, at around 9:45, Doug talks about getting clear film applied over the car so as to protect the paint, and that looks kinda promising. The clear film for Doug’s Ford GT ended up being about $7,000, though. So.)

Ready Patch | Cool Tools
“Ready Patch ($9/qt.) easily outperforms any spackling compound and drywall mud I’ve ever used. I’d liken it to the superbeast that would be created if you combined the hardness of body filler with the sandability of light vinyl spackle.

“It can patch drywall, wood, even metal on both interior and exterior surfaces.

“We recently moved into a new home and needed to relocate a cable jack in our family room that has painted wood paneling. I didn’t want to use vinyl spackle, but was a little lost about how to patch the holes until finding Ready Patch. Smooth and easy to apply, it goes on just like vinyl spackle, takes no more effort, and in my experience it doesn’t shrink when applied, so there’s no need to overfill.”

I tested it out and immediately fell for it.

With this pencil, I could completely reshape my barren looking brows. I was in love.”

An Ode to the Romance Novel (Feat. Lindsay Ellis) | It's Lit! - YouTube
(This is actually a pretty good recap of romance novels—including some recommendations for LGBT romance novels.)
“The romance novel has been the subject of intrigue, derision, and shame in literary discourse long before the modern genre as we know it today existed. Romance novels are relegated to your Aunt Muriel’s bathroom, thrift store book sections, and that one aisle in Barnes and Noble that you pretend to walk through because you got ‘lost’ looking for cookbooks. But it deserves a closer look than that - it is after all the highest grossing of all literary genres, out-selling its next nearest competitor twice over.”

Close cousin to the shandy (a style then tends be a bit more beer-forward and higher in alcohol), radlers are traditionally an equal mixture of lager and carbonated citrus soda, and typically clock in somewhere near 3.0% ABV. The word radler is German for ‘cyclist.’ And the style’s origin story holds that, back in the 1920s, a Munich barman named Franz Kugler was struggling to serve all the bikers stopping into his place for a mid-ride beer. Kugler started mixing lager with lemon soda in order to keep pace with demand, and the radler was born.

“Whether or not that story is true, radlers have long been popular in Germany and Austria. (Stiegl’s Grapefruit Radler is the archetype of the style.) And every summer seems to bring a wave of new craft radlers here in the U.S. But while some are delicious, many can be overly tart or saccharine. Here are 12 good ones to try this summer.”

If you had wanted to set up a teensy site, perhaps this may be worth a look?

Here’s how you got here:
@rjonesy asked: “I want to keep http://manageapplesubscriptions.com doing the exact same thing, but I want us to be able to save it to iOS home screen, with a nice icon. Any ideas how to do that?”
(https://twitter.com/rjonesy/status/1012102398955974656)

To which @drbarnard replied:
“@rjonesy Pretty sure nothing has changed from these instructions: https://webdesign.tutsplus.com/articles/quick-tip-give-your-website-an-ios-home-screen-icon--webdesign-10067”
(https://twitter.com/drbarnard/status/1012103201242402816)

(From there, @rjonesy followed up with:)
“@drbarnard That part I’ve got, but where do I host it that’s not $100/yr square space for a dinky little icon and redirect?”
https://twitter.com/rjonesy/status/1012103439978033156

(And then @drbarnard chimed in with:)
“@rjonesy Oh, I use https://www.nearlyfreespeech.net for stuff like that. Load it up with $20 and it’ll last a few years, maybe more.”

How I stopped the RSI pain that almost destroyed my programming career
(Hmm—this might be worth a look.)
“Finally, if you’re still in pain after a month or two go read Dr. Sarno’s book. (Update: After posting this blog I got a number of emails from people saying ‘I read that book and my pain quickly went away.’)”

TradeMark Carwash | Services
Wade recommended this place, saying “I’ve taken my car here a few times.”
(via: https://twitter.com/wadewinningham/status/1002203156330221569)

Wade later added:
“They put it on a slow conveyer belt and people do actually hand wash stuff. So no rails and no brushes. They DO offer that as a mini-detail though.”
(https://twitter.com/wadewinningham/status/1002204961470545921)

(They’re on Coit road just north of George Bush, and Google Maps says that they’re 8.5 miles / about 19 mins from home.)

Tea Sachets Exist – Marco.org
“Sachets strike a remarkable balance of quality and convenience. To me, they taste just as good as loose tea. And there’s no measuring, dispensing, or cleanup. It’s the tea version of the promise of coffee pods, but it actually delivers on that promise because good tea is so much easier to brew than good coffee.

“When they’re individually wrapped, like the one pictured above, they’re even more convenient. Not only do they retain their flavor for a long time, but they’re great for travel: you can bring a couple on a plane or pack a handful for the hotel and have great tea in restricted conditions with zero equipment, as long as you have some ability to make or request a cup of hot water.

“I’m a big fan of two green teas from Harney & Sons.”

Wintercheck Factory Utility Shower Curtain | Cool Tools
“I’ve been using the Utility Shower Curtain, a simple but brilliant upgrade to an everyday object, for the past few months. It is, very simply, a shower curtain with four draining pockets sewn on the inside and two towel loops on the outside. What once was a shower crowded with shampoos and conditioners (I have two roommates) is now considerably tidier.”

Metal Prints, Personalized Metal Art | Costco Photo Center
From Recommendo—
“Everyone is now a photographer and our audience is on the small screen. But there’s a real joy in seeing a large image on a wall. The best way to do that is via the Metal Print from Costco Photo. You send a digital file to the online Costco and then you pick up the piece at your local store. Your image is printed in gorgeous quality on a thick piece of aluminum sheet so that it is perfectly 100% flat and glossy – much flatter than can be done by framing. No glass or plastic cover required, which makes this style very light weight even for big pieces. And since it is frameless, hung with an internal French cleat, it is cheap. A huge 24 x 36 inch picture, printed and ready to hang in your room, or gallery, is $120. A large 11 x 14 is only $34. These show pieces really wow; even a decent shot from a new phone will work. — KK”

seeking your favorite chill, instrumental-only beat based electronica - downtempo | Ask MetaFilter
Among some leads—
“Is instrumental hip hop ‘electronic’ enough for you? It’s all made with extensive use of sequencers and samplers and digital audio workstations... part of why ‘electronic’ is not a very good descriptor, but I digress.

}Check out :
Nujabes
Jinsang
And many other related artists that are part of the instrumental/electronic hip hop beat movement.}


“I can't guarantee it won't ever have any vocals, but the Chillhop youtube channel is worth checking out. They are currently doing a 24/7 stream .”
