That would be the Couchmaster Pro.

Edit: They also sell these really cool compact booth-things for racing games.

u/PixelStitchedUnicorn · 625 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Woman here. I buy men's razors. They're cheaper, last longer, and are better quality overall. No reason to pay more for the pink razors unless you're going into the fancy ones that have the soap around the blades or something. It's just marketing that works...unlike Bic's pens for her. (Seriously though, read the reviews, they're great)

u/JORFICT · 154 pointsr/xxfitness

I wanted to take notes on what you said here, but I forgot to bring my [Bic for Her pen] (https://www.amazon.com/BIC-Fashion-Retractable-Assorted-Fashion-FHAP21-ASST/dp/B005YGLA5Y) today so I can't. :(

Highly recommend the pens though, I bought them based on the Amazon reviews...

Something like this may help give you piece of mind, it braces the door and makes it impossible to open without breaking in (no install required):

u/rusty0123 · 134 pointsr/JustNoSO

Tomorrow, go down to your home improvement store and get an Angel lock. If that doesn't fit your door, look for a floor lock.

Keep your phone charged and keep it with you. Look up how long average police response times are in your neighborhood, and make plans accordingly.

Stay safe.

VIVO Triple LCD Monitor Desk Mount Stand Heavy Duty and Fully Adjustable | 3 Screens up to 30 inches (STAND-V003T) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00B1D03GQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_KlHHDb0TWV02A

I use this and it’s worked really well. The two bottom monitors are slightly resting on the desk as well. It was a pain to get set up perfectly but they haven’t moved since.

u/BornOnFeb2nd · 84 pointsr/Wellworn

Man, if you have chairs on "hard" surfaces... get the rollerblade wheels. You go from "scraping" with every move, to silently gliding around.

u/High_In_The_Instep · 44 pointsr/legaladvice

Just buy some variation of this:
https://www.amazon.com/DoorJammer-Portable-Security-Personal-Protection/dp/B00N95IVSQ

This will fix the problem while you are at home at least. If they say they want to come in, say there was no notice.

u/cardinal29 · 40 pointsr/legaladvice

I'd put a chain up, and use it whenever you are home. If you can't do that (screw holes, etc.) there are security door stoppers or this device that stops maintenance people, even if they have a key.

Even more Amazon reviews for the retractible version

> I accidentally grabbed one of these pens (the lovely purple one) out of my wife's purse and instantly got my period. Now I'm feeling bloated and weepy.

> For those who haven't actually tried this pen, it is easy to make fun of. I LOVE this pen. When I click on it, it sometimes releases an eraser-sized nub of chocolate. At other times, a Fabio-like voice in dulcet tones says "Math eez hard. But you can do it" or "Take a break. Ez time too watch Dr. Phil!". It really just gives me the extra motivation to go on with my day. Also, it has amazing built-in smart technology! When I see my patients using this pen, the pen automatically detects the awkward situation because it knows to say "Do not worry, the real doctor will be in soon." Thankfully, the pen then signals to my male colleague, who will arrive with his "For Him - Bic Magnum" pen, designed to write OVER "For her" scribbles. Lives saved. Thanks, Bic!!!

u/evilblackbunny · 36 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

So this absolute toenail of a woman has violated yours and SO's boundaries multiple times? She's been told a dozen time to cut that shit out and hasn't?

Get a lock for your door.

Can't do any damage to your door or frame of the door with screws because it's a rental or you're staying temporarily?

I got you.

Doorjammer. Easy operation, slide and adjust.

Addalock. Installs quickly, no tools needed, and easier to hide in case someone for whatever reason throws a fit about the door being locked.

Also, something else.

Door Stop Alarm. It doesn't lock the door, but it lets out a hell of a noise when it's tripped. Wanna embarass this toenail or just feel like being a bit petty? Boom, noisemaker.

No one is allowed into your room without permission. It is yours and SO's space, not for anyone else to invade. She is stomping your boundaries, and has not listened after being told to cut it out.

Is there an off chance that this woman is experiencing dementia? It might explain [but not excuse!] why this keeps happening.

u/ElephantTeeth · 35 pointsr/pics

I’m a woman. He’s the one that assumed.

Edit: Shortly after I moved out of my childhood home, my dad sat me down and gave me a speech about how I’d have to do things for myself now (seriously), and he presented me with a tool kit. All the handles had a flower print on them.

Both of these men have my best interest at heart, but I guarantee that they each spent an extra 10% at least for an unnecessary bit of decoration.

It’s like when BIC branded that one set of pens for women (Read the reviews!). Why?

Not sure if your chair has caster wheels or not. If it does - these are specifically designed to solve your problem. It replaces the plastic crap that comes with your chair with a soft rollerblade wheel. I had this problem and this worked for me.

Oh man, nobody's mentioned the rOtring 600 yet?! It's the love of my life. I had a Uni Kuru Toga 0.5mm for a little over a year beforehand and it was awesome, too. My only complaint about it was the compliance in the tip made it annoying to precisely predict how tiny lines would end up (I write very small). The 0.5mm rOtring doesn't spin the lead or anything fancy like the Kuru Toga, but it is so heavy, so well balanced, and the tolerances are just awesome. I've tried the rOtring 800 with the retractable tip, but the tolerance stackup of the moving parts just made it feel of lower quality than the 600.

u/mzdabby · 18 pointsr/battlestations

So I went back two years on my purchase history to when I bought it on amazon.. the manufacturer replaced it with a similar item, so i have no guarantee that it will be the same. Mine has two clamps at the bottom where this one only has one, which I do not like.

I’m a fan of some sort of doorstop too. They even make products like this that you can even take when you travel!

u/notmyname1 · 17 pointsr/chromeos

Yep.
If you're looking for a larger stylus for longer writing/drawing sessions, the Staedtler Digital Pencil ($15) works great. Also, with either this or the included stylus, Squid is amazing. Zero lag.

u/Ageez85 · 16 pointsr/LetsNotMeet

The neighborhood watch is a really good idea. If ur able to talk with the people that live directly by you, next door, across the hall, and let them know what has happened, possibly exchange numbers so you have people right by you to call if u get spooked. Maybe some can even step outside their apartment when you get home from work and wait till you get inside.

Also there are many different products like this doorjam hopefully I did the link correctly 1st time I’ve done one but that might help you feel little more secure. This is just an example I haven’t researched them so don’t know which ones are most effective.

Weird situation. I would think if people wanted to break in or do something else they wouldn’t draw so much attention to themselves beforehand but who knows. Glad your husband got some time off to stay with you. Sorry u have to deal with this idiot. I hope it stops and things get better for you guys, be safe.

u/Osgoodbad · 16 pointsr/fountainpens

Why would you assume that it's mostly men? What makes it a "man" pen?

Edit: Obligatory [Bic for Her] (https://www.amazon.com/BIC-Fashion-Retractable-Assorted-Fashion-FHAP21-ASST/dp/B005YGLA5Y)

u/invisiblebob8616 · 14 pointsr/fountainpens

Well the obvious recommendation for this is 350mL of Pilot blue/black. Should last a lifetime! Other than that, it would be worth checking out the various blue/blacks offered by Diamine, Pilot/Iroshizuku, Lamy, Monteverde, Pelikan, and Robert Oster.

u/Yinzadi · 14 pointsr/MensLib

In a similar vein, the reviews of "Bic for Her" pens are hilarious:

u/enemy1g · 13 pointsr/buildapcsales

Bottom accent isn't as bright as it is in this picture. Great monitor if you're looking for 144hz. Stand sucks balls, but these vesa adapters work well.

u/jorjordandan · 13 pointsr/oculus

If you get the grey outdoor mounting strips, it will take out your drywall before it falls off (that may be a problem to take down but it's easy to install). It's crazy strong after it cures. It's the consumer version of the VHB tape compared here with rivets. We use it in our small batch manufacturing business....

EDIT: Packaging looks like this

u/Toujourspurpadfoot · 12 pointsr/ShitAmericansSay

That’s accurate. Equality isn’t really conducive to capitalism (or conservative theocracy). As long as there’s division amongst genders, companies can make gendered products and make more money, usually charging more for the “lady” version.

Check out the questions and reviews on this.

The part about the protein bars cracks me up. Just like those Bic for Her reviews. Always good for a chuckle.

u/Orval · 11 pointsr/battlestations

It appears to be either this one or this one

I THINK either one would work for achieving a similar effect.

u/NetSage · 11 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Probably because monitor, keyboard, mouse, and desk/couch are all very specific to people individually. So it would make more sense to buy a monitor and attach to something like https://smile.amazon.com/COUCHMASTER-Ergonomic-Couch-Gaming-Cushions-Mousepad/dp/B00CCHRJ2Q/ref=sr_1_7?keywords=keyboard+and+mouse+tray+for+couch&qid=1571167825&smdm-noredirect=true&sr=8-7 .

There are smaller options but that one actually looks sturdy enough to put a monitor mount on it with little to no modification.

With thunderbolt I imagine you build some sort of pass-through system with a nice long cable management sleeve to make a bearable set up.

u/theta_abernathy · 10 pointsr/AskFeminists

I get where you're coming from, because some #masculinitysofragile tweets are a bit "I'm a manly man hurp durp". However, I think the intent with most of it is to make fun if the marketers for thinking that "man size qtips" is a good idea. Products for women are criticized in similar ways, like this Bic for her review, which implies that regular pens are too dangerous for women, and that women need a man to teach them how to write. It benefits from having no character limit, so it's a bit more obvious that it's tongue in cheek, but I think most #masculinitysofragile tweets are going for the same effect.

u/Mysterious_X · 10 pointsr/buildapcsales

This is a much better deal, and offers a larger range of horizontal motion for the monitors, but does not have individual height adjustment.

Edit: Sorry to promote the competition, but the community should know about other options.

u/derspiny · 10 pointsr/legaladvice

At this point it's unlikely that the legal system has a lot to offer you. It's a fairly blunt instrument, and most legal protections kick in after the fact, not pre-emptively. Even a restraining order would generally require a pre-existing pattern of harassment or violence, which isn't evident from your post.

You're doing the right thing by prioritizing getting out of this situation. In the interim, it might be worth keeping your phone charged and on your person whenever you're at home, and locking the door when you use the bathroom. If you want something a little stiffer than a bathroom privacy lock, removable door braces exist, but they're ultimately only as strong as the door itself.

Depending on how comfortable you feel with this, you may also want to sit your roommate down and spell out, clearly, that your sexual relationship is over, that he is no longer to touch you for any reason, and that you will treat continued unwanted touching as sexual assault. That's very confrontational, and you can expect your roommate to be angry… but enforcing this boundary is important to you and to your safety, and his anger is his problem.

He cannot legally lock you out over this. If you aren't on the lease, he can give you notice to terminate your tenancy, but that gives you a full month to find another place to live.

u/sokshock · 10 pointsr/Pathfinder_RPG

Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!! Not dry erase pens on a chessex mat!!!!!! If you're getting the standard old school chessex mat you'll need WET ERASE markers. Specifically the kind that was used on the over head projectors when we were kids (depending on how old you are - I'm thinking early 2000's). I was having trouble finding the wet erase markers at office supply stores but was able to find them at my local university store. Paizo's flip mats will work with dry erase or wet erase but I would still go for the wet erase on those because it prevents the map from being easily erased while people move the minis and mess with the table.

The Chessex mat I'd recommend - Reversable-choose your size
The markers I'd recommend - Staedtler's Non Permanent Lumocolor specifically the medium tip, fine is too small or Expo Vis-a-Vis Wet Erase

Hope this helps.

Edit- To quote chessex about dry erase markers- 'Never use dry erase, permanent, or grease-pencil markers. The vinyl is too porous for the lines created from them to be able to be removed. If you have any doubt of the suitability of any particular
marker, draw a small line on the border, let sit for awhile, and see how well it can be removed. Better to have a small permanent blemish on the edge of the mat than a permanent map drawn on the entirety of the mat!'

u/JonSzanto · 10 pointsr/fountainpens

I most certainly do, especially if you have any friends who like fps and ink: Pilot Blue/Black in the 'coke bottle'. You can get this for around $22.00 for 350ml (you read that right) and that is for a remarkably good ink that is even fairly waterproof. If you split the bottle with friends, you can end up with the absolute best ink value on the planet. I got into this ink because pen restoration people I know use it, and they use a lot of ink and it can't be a problem ink. Give it a look.

u/nathanmca · 10 pointsr/Frugal

In order to use google voice to bypass the cost associated with traditional sms messaging on ting I use the following setup. My phone number is actually on google voice not on my ting account. Using the google voice app I'm able to send and receive calls and text messages using my google voice. People don't even know that my number is on google voice and not on ting. All text message are sent over the data connection or wifi. Although there are data charges the amount of data used for messaging is quite small. Since data is used to send messages you would lose the ability to send messages while roaming. Another advantage to this setup is that messages can go over wifi. This is useful if you (like me) are sometimes in a college basement and can't get a signal but you still have access to wifi.

Limitations:

-this only works with android phones

-you will lose the ability to message non traditional numbers (ex 464411)

-you can't send or receive MMS messages


Setup:

When you set up ting you should move your number to google voice not to ting. This cost $20 one time. If your not attached to your number google voice will assign you a new number for free.

Log into your google voice account and add a forwarding phone that is the number that is the number assigned to your ting phone. This is not your google voice number but the number listed in your ting account. When you do this it will place a test call to your ting phone for verification purposes. I would also recommend turning off call screening and enabling the spam filter.

Next download the google voice app and start the setup process. It's important to skip "sprint google voice integration" because your using ting and not sprint. However google voice can't tell that your a ting customer and not a sprint customer so it still prompts you. You should select the following options while setting up the app.

-use google voice to make all calls

-skip voice mail forwarding setup (this is not necessary since your call are already going through google voice)

Next you should log into your ting account and select the line that your are setting up google voice for. Select the following options.

-disable the ability to send and receive text messages

-disable voicemail

Another cool thing you can do now that you have your number on google voice is send and receive text messages in a web browser on your computer by going to voice.google.com If you make a lot of calls at home and have a reliable internet connection you can purchase an obitalk voip adapter. http://www.amazon.com/OBi100-Telephone-Adapter-Service-Bridge/dp/B004LO098O/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1376716249&sr=1-1&keywords=obi100

This allows you to make unlimited calls with your google voice numbers while at home using a traditional phone.

u/Odetodistractions · 8 pointsr/buildapc

I hightly recommend the CM Quickfire Rapid to anyone knew to the mechanical keyboard world. They are built very well. They don't go for the 'Gamer' look and just offer a solid keyboard. They are available from most big retailers (most high level mechs are not). They offer a lot of the perks of premium mech boards, without the higher price as you can often find them for pretty cheap ($50 - $80). The only real downside to them, is the key caps. They are pretty cheap, but odds are if you're buying a mechanical keyboard, you plan on customizing them anyways. Which the QFR lends itself very well to. Some keyboards (like the K65) have some keys that are not standard size. This makes it a little more difficult to customize.


Need a wrist wrest? Look no further than the Griffiti Tenkeyless. It may fray a little, but support is very good and it's comfy. As opposed to other brands that offer cheap plasic ones.

To be fair sometimes women's stuff is made exactly the same as men's but costs twice as much. It just happens to be a different colour. Also some things specially made for women are just ridiculous. Take Bic's pen for women as an example. Why the hell do women need pens specially designed for them? You can go to any office supply store and buy cheap pens by the bucket. Sometimes marketing to women is really stupid.

We recommend using the 3M or Scotch indoor outdoor Mounting Tape. It's gray with a red peel off backing that you can cut to fit. It can be found at Walmart or your local hardware stores. Below is a link to the tape from amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/3M-Scotch-4011-Exterior-Mounting/dp/B00004Z4BV/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1498474461&sr=8-1&keywords=3M+Scotch+4011+Exterior+Mounting+Tape%2C+1+in+x+60+in

u/HarmlessEZE · 7 pointsr/Multicopter

3/4" heatshrink to go over the ESC's. 0.25" I think to go over your battery cables. 5/8ths maybe to cover XT60 connectors. Wire sleeves aren't needed. I hold stuff down with double sided tape. or a wrap of electrical.

Thin solder, you'll thank me. Along with a pencil tip for your iron. You'll want ?14G? wire to solder a power lead, confirm this. I also didn't have a 5V step down to power my FC on my first build. You'll want one. Many PDB's have one integrated. That makes it easy.

Purple Loctite or your frame will vibrate itself apart, Real quick. Don't use this on Nylon, and don't get it on the motor shaft, but it is extra important to use on motor mounts though. Just be careful.

A battery buzzer that you can solder onto your PDB is nice. Adhesive velcro is good if you want to use that in addition to battery straps. Either that or hobby foam. A parallel charging board is nice to have so you don't lose an entire day charging batteries. Learn to use it.

I personally replace all my stock hardware with Aluminum Cap screws because I want to cut weight and I hate dealing with stripped hex heads. Not needed though. Zip ties are good to have. A bundle of black ones will work. I've found the colored ones are more prone to breaking. They are good to hold antenna wires.

90deg pin headers are nice. My FC didn't come with those, only straight, and stack height is a real problem with straight pins. Extra props. You'll want those. 8mm socket to remove prop nuts. 3mm allen key. USB to micro USB cable to update your FC. Some XT60 connectors.

Beyond that, I'm sure I'm over looking some things. After a couple of builds you just have extras of stuff so you overlook.

I use these lights mounted with this tape along the bottom of the walls (~4" gap between the floor and the floorboards). They're quite bright on the white setting, and underlighting is far less annoying than overheads, since it isn't shining in your eyes while you're on the bench. End result looks like this

Leuchtturm1917 always left me satisfied. Smooth, great quality paper and subtle dotted matrix on the pages. A nice, hardcover, leathery effect on the outside. Got mine for 15€ back in Germany.

An interesting NY sketchbook company has also caught my eye - Baron Fig, they have pretty cool high-quality notebooks.

A Moleskine is always a safe bet too.

u/Nixflyn · 7 pointsr/hardware

Give one of these a shot.

I use this one at work because it's cheap and super cushy. It's bad for people with oily or sweaty hands though, as the foam falls apart with prolonged contact to liquids. I've had mine for a couple years and it's doing great. My friend with sweaty palms killed his in 6 months. Multiple sizes available.

https://www.amazon.com/Mechanical-Keyboards-MacBooks-Notebooks-Neoprene/dp/B004DANDN4

I use this one at home (well, one just like it). It's gel with a material casing and rubber foot. Nothing you do to it while using your computer should cause it to break down. The downside is when they get dirty, cleaning fabrics with a sponge can be annoying. Also comes in whatever size you need.

Oh, no! Not anxiety?

Sadly, your anxiety is not a particularly relevant factor. The landlord generally has the right to do things like place lock boxes, which are a standard practice for realtors.

If it will help your anxiety, perhaps can invest in https://www.amazon.com/DoorJammer-Portable-Security-Personal-Protection/dp/B00N95IVSQ/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?crid=DBZ8MUT2B9P6&keywords=door+jammer+portable+door+security+device&qid=1556402640&s=gateway&sprefix=doir+jammer&sr=8-3

This lets you secure your door from inside while you’re home, even in the face of a person armed with a key. You could then answer the door and confirm that it’s a real estate agent and not a ne’er-do-well.

Pilot Blue Black comes in bottles.

u/bentonite · 6 pointsr/fountainpens

Pilot Blue-Black is cheap as dirt (350 mL for $25), waterproof, professional, and really well behaved. It also shades surprisingly well on Rhodia and Tomoe River paper (maybe a 6.5/10 on shading which is a bit unusual for such a standard color).

(I've recently rediscovered this ink after spilling some water on a page I'd written and seeing just a hint of desaturation instead of the complete washing away of everything. Instant convert/made me love the ink again).

Slow down. Women need special pens that reflect their delicate sensibilities and unique biology, so it only makes sense that LGBT people would need special apps with purple or rainbow backgrounds.

I think the term OP meant to use is "Applications of Color", and I can't recommend any because it would violate sacred safe spaces for me to even look at the Appstore of Color. But they probably have some awesome apps in there.

Don't print them… draw your own on a reusable surface. Your maps don't don't need to be super detailed.

Get a $12.00 flip mat and some wet erase markers and just sketch out the corridors to scale.

Another solution is a chessex map. If you're really going to get into the hobby then this is a longer-term solution than the flip mats.

A final option is to buy a roll of 1" grid paper and some sharpies, and draw your own.

All of these are cheaper than buying a projector or printing each map to a 1" grid scale.

u/myfilterisbroken · 5 pointsr/HappyPlanners

It's slightly over $20, but it is 350 ml - which is probably a lifetime supply. A coke bottle full of ink

u/tombolger · 5 pointsr/fountainpens

You're buying waterman ink and a $15 pen in this equation which is absurd. Cheap pens need to compared to cheap pens.

Let's say you buy a $2 Jinhao from eBay, free shipping, in an EF nib, including a converter, and then buy this $22 350 mL blue ink from Amazon.

It's 7 times the ink for twice the price, which is 3.5 times the value on ink. Plus, in an EF, you're writing a line more comparable to the .05 line of normal cheap pens, while putting far less ink down on the paper, which could mean that you use half or even less of the ink than you described. That 350 mL bottle would last forever. And the total cost for basically a lifetime of writing is $24.


The lie we tell ourselves is that we can save money by buying the pens and inks we WANT to use. We don't, it's a fantastic waste. But at its core there is truth to the economic upside of a refillable pen.

u/superoblivionbread · 5 pointsr/fountainpens

Fountain pens deplete liquid ink much quicker than a ballpoint or gel pen or whatever. Just one of the quirks. And you're probably using it more than you thought! 1-ish mL of ink in a few days of moderate writing is not unheard of considering a single day of heavy duty note taking can do it.

The cost of ink can be negligible if you buy a bulk bottle of Pilot ink or similar. A 50mL bottle of ink will probably last 6-12 months.

edit: maybe don't invest in 350cc of ink if don't know if you'll like it or not. J.Herbin and some other inks are pretty expensive but brands like Pilot, Waterman and Pelikan sell regular ink that's a bit cheaper.

I personally look for a desk to hold two 27 inch monitors and a long mouse pad. I don’t really like the keyboard trays cause I move my hand around with my mouse and wouldn’t want it to be on a different level than my keyboard (if that makes sense).

I like a basic desk. No shelves/storage stuff. I have tried those before and it was a mess. One thing I invested in so I wouldn’t have my desk holding my PC was a PC caddy. Cost around $10. Incredibly helpful so you have maximum desk space. I got mine off Amazon. Also I sit on my legs A LOT and personally hate sitting “normal” when gaming. So I got a little foot hammock so I can have my feet off the ground and stretched out and comfortable.

u/zeroable · 5 pointsr/AskHistorians

/u/commiespaceinvader touched on an issue that I'd like to address a bit more directly.

In my experience, people who are not history buffs sometimes confuse the ideas of "women's history" and "gender history." This might be a bit obvious, but gender history can be seen as an expansion of the more femme-focused field of women's history. Gender history looks at femininities, masculinities, genders in between, genders outside, agender identities, etc. (See /u/sunagainstgold's reply to this comment for the historiographic context of this, which includes the difference between social and cultural history.)

I think part of why many laypeople equate gender history with women's history is that we in the Anglophone world tend to think of men/masculinity as the default state of being, and women/femininity as the gendered alternative. (Think of the Amazon review debacle that was ungendered Bic Pens vs. "feminine" Bic for Her. Or behold these unnecessarily "designed for women!" ear plugs. The regular product is for men (?), so apparently we need a special pink product for women.)

Deborah Tannen explains phenomenon this brilliantly in her classic essay, "There is No Unmarked Woman." We have been trained to notice femininity more than masculinity, causing us to equate "gender" with femininity.

EDIT: And I'd like to second /u/sunagainstgold's Feminist history versus history of women as a very pertinent to what I was trying to say here.

EDIT 2: Changed a few things in response to sunagainstgold's valuable corrections.

Wrist rests are actually bad for posture and cause carpal tunnel/RSI, since no pressure should ever be applied to your wrist (either resting on a desk or a wrist rest) Your wrists should be floating above the desk, parallel to the ground. It's tiring at first, but you get used to it and it's better than having wrist pain for the rest of your life.

If you really want one that badly though, these ones are really good and this one is cheap.

u/noah551 · 4 pointsr/subaru

I've been asked this several times haha. I'll do a little explaining now, but I think it's time I put together an album explaining it with pictures.

I used the following wiring harness:
OPT7 Offroad Light Bar wiring Harness Kit (4 Items), 380W - Single Connector https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00K1NS0PS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_u9hrxb06G38RA

The wiring is in a protective plastic/rubber sleeve. I ran the sleeve up the side of the windshield. On my windshield there's a slight gap between the metal of the body and glass, like the Rubber seal is set in a little bit. I cut a thin strip of 3m exterior mounting tape and used a screwdriver or something to push it into the gap.

Scotch Exterior Mounting Tape, 1-Inch by 60-Inch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00004Z4BV/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_UaLrxbHN01CVZ

The adhesive tape has held up all winter and about a total of 8 months, so I'd say it works well.

I ran it up the passenger side because the way my light bar was the wiring came out on that side, plus you don't see it easily everytime you get in the car. You could do the drivers side also. The wiring harness I used was basically just long enough. I'd recommend starting from the light and working backwards to the battery, that way you don't have any extra wiring up top.

You can also use some type of adhesive wire clip to guide the wire down the rain gutter thing so it's a little more secure till it gets to the light. I attempted to do this, but I had trouble getting the clip things to stick.I'll probably try to redo it soon.

Like I said, I'll try to get some pictures when I get around to it to help explain it further.

This way is a lot easier and "safer" than drilling through the roof or something.

It never leaves a residue, sticks almost permanently to itself, and can hold quite well to even porous surfaces.

u/staggernaut · 4 pointsr/SpaceBuckets

Materials:

Three 5-gallon buckets and one lid (Ace Hardware has white ones for $4, if you don't want orange or blue from HD or Lowe's.) All three cost $12-13.

THESE LEDS from Amazon. $13.59

THIS POWER SUPPLY, the Supernight LED Charger. It is $20.99. You will also need a power cord for it, which I recommend just going to literally ANY thrift store and picking out a nice three-pronged power cord. I'm fairly certain that any three-pronged power cord will work, so if you have one you're not using at home, you can use that.

THIS LED GROW LIGHT, which is 300w and cost $50.99.

TWO of these PC fans. Total cost $10.04.

I bought one of this black duct tape, one of this foil tape (although I recommend buying two, as I ran out with my first roll and had to buy another from the store), and also some double-sided tape, because, if your LED strip is like mine, the adhesive backing is almost nonexistent and the tape becomes necessary.

Oh, and good-quality velcro adhesive patches!

You will also need a power drill and a sturdy box cutter.



I started by taping the entire interior of one bucket with the foil tape, save for the bottom portion where the soil goes. Then I covered the outside with the black tape. Next I drilled holes in the bottom for drainage.

Then I took two of the other buckets and used a ruler's width to mark a cut line right below the lip of each bucket to create spacers. The process of cutting the plastic buckets was definitely the worst part of the process, especially since I didn't have a great cutter, so if you're getting a new one, don't be too cheap. I got this one and it's blade locking function no longer works after this project, so be advised. I lined the spacers with foil tape.

Using the remains of one of the other buckets, I trimmed more of the bucket down so that it's now only the bottom and stands 5" tall. I found some random large screws in my toolbox and drilled them around the circumference, which allows the rest of the bucket to be easily lifted off of the drain pan.

I then drew a circle about 1 cm in from the lip of the lid and cut that out. The light fits perfectly on it. There is lots of light escape at the rim, but it looks pretty cool, so I don't mind it for now.

For the power supply, I cut off the female end of the three-pronged cord I got from Arc Thrift and stripped the wires down a bit. There were three wires inside, green (ground), white (neutral), and black (live), which I then connected to driver. I was certain to unplug during any wire-play and I hope everyone else is, too.

The sidelights were sort of a struggle. I used a scrap of the buckets, like maybe 4-5 inches of bucket from about half-way down to a quarter, so not much. I then lined the inside with the double-sided tape, cutting strips, in an effort to conserve tape, which feels very stable. I drilled a hole and fed the cable through, then determined the best spot to drill a hole on the exterior bucket. It's about at the center of the bucket, or in my case, 13 cm down from the lip. Finally, I fed the LED cable through the exterior hole and the lights were basically in place, where it would sit right above the soil.

I didn't want to have to extend any cords, so I found an ideal spot to place the driver on the exterior so that all cables (LED strip, both fans) could reach their appropriate ports. I fixed the velcro onto the bucket and the driver and tidied the wires with some more duct tape.

Finally, I sealed the edges of both fans, inside and outside, with their respective tapes.


I'm pretty sure that's everything I've done to this point, but if I think of anything else, I'll add it. I'm likely going to black-out the spacers to reduce light leak.

Please let me know if you have any advice, questions, comments!

Thank you /r/SpaceBuckets, for the inspiration and wisdom!

u/crackadeluxe · 4 pointsr/fixit

The toggle bolt, or some type of fastener will indeed hold more weight and be a more permanent fix. However, you said you are a renter, which changes things.

In that case you might consider using a foam mounting tape, or the stronger exterior mounting tape.

Just make sure you clean both the back of the phone and the wall thoroughly, and then wipe both down with alcohol prior to tape application. If you put enough mounting tape on that phone, which looks fairly light, your troubles should be over. That's going to be your cheapest option that'll last as long as you are there and not require any special tools or wall surgery. Especially considering that wall looks pretty dodgy in the first place and trying to affix anything through it could be asking for more trouble than it is worth. If you owned it I'd advise different but that is not what you asked. Good luck.

u/DnDYetti · 4 pointsr/DnD

> 1) what do you recomend to do?

I'd personally start with 5e, because it is a much more simplified system that allows for more aspects of role-playing, which is great for everyone - especially new players.

A nice start for new groups to DnD is a starter set. Here is a link to buy a starter set which comes with a 64-page adventure pre-made module book, a 32-page rule-book for playing characters level 1–5, 5 pregenerated characters, each with a character sheet and supporting reference material, and 6 dice. If you are playing 5e, you need the 5e books - the 3.5 books won't work for 5e, they are completely different games due to additional information added over each new edition.

I'd also recommend that you all sit down together in the same room, hook up a computer to a TV in the room, and watch some good DnD games to figure out what role-playing means, how DM's look in action, and how the game runs overall. Shows such as Critical-Role, or Acquisitions Incorporated are amazing.

Cheap and good: Staedtler 925: 3-pack of 0.3mm, 0.5mm, and 0.7mm for $20. Individually sold at art/stationary stores for $5-$10 each.

The metal version by Pentel: GraphGear 500: 4-pack of 0.3mm, 0.5mm, 0.7mm and 0.9mm for $20. Individually sold at stores for $10-$20 each. They're okay, and people like the metal look, but I prefer the Staedtler.

The good stuff: rOtring. rOtring 600: $23. rOtring 800: $50.

I haven't tried the rOtring pencils myself; I've heard they're good, but I've been pretty happy with the Staedtlers. Although they're the cheapest I mentioned, they're also very comfortable and reliable. I've never had one fail (I have had Pentel pencils fail, including but not limited to the ones I linked), and I've been using them for years.

Make sure you get a decent mechanical eraser to go with them. A Tombow MONO zero in an amazing eraser for the details, and a Sanford Paper Mate Tuff Stuff is good for everything else. Buy an extra pack of the refills and you're good for a while. Note: Do not buy the Sanford eraser for more than $5. The price on Amazon right now is ridiculous. The Tombow is a little more pricy; $5-$10 is fair for it.

Boom arm for the mic is mounted is either mounted to the wall, a hole is drilled out of the top plastic cap on the mount's pole and sits in there, or the clamp can mount to the pole with the plastic cap removed or to the pole itself.

I am not sure if you are traveling in a single location or multiple areas for your work, but either way I would scout the area and locate various points of interest. Police, medical, fire, grocery/supply stores. Also educate yourself about possible natural risks such as earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornados and flesh out a plan for what you would do in such an event. See if the hotel has a evacuation plan for emergencies and review it.

Do you have a door wedge security device for your hotel, it will increase your safety in the room and help prevent intrusion. Something like this

Could be any number of things. What kind of chair to you use? What angle are your wrists at when you're typing? Do you rest your arms/wrists on the desk as you're typing, or do you float them above the keyboard?

Between playing guitar a lot through high school (and still a fair amount now) and the amount I spend on my computer (similar to you) my wrists aren't in the greatest of shape, either, though I don't think they're as bad as yours.

As far as wrist pads, I've seen a number of people on here use Grifiti Wrist Pads, which come in sizes for Full-sized keyboards, TKL, 60% and mouse pads.

I've been thinking of getting one of them for myself.

It's actually really, really nice. It was fairly cheap on Amazon and some of the reviews warned about how dense it was and how badly it smelled. The smell went away after a few hours and even though it's dense, it's soft enough that my wrists don't hurt after typing all day.

the idea with kodi (XBMC has been renamed) is that the user interface allows for opening those files via remote (another example), in a way that is easy to do from the couch.

u/mastermind278 · 3 pointsr/AndroidTV

I actually just got this from Amazon on Wednesday, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00K768DHY/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00K768DHY&linkCode=as2&tag=rutgpacal-20&linkId=75NXKNY6KJIO3TPA . It works pretty decent on the ADT-1 except for the airmouse not being able to be fully disabled (or I haven't figured a way to do it). It seems that when it gets enabled and your on Leanback you have to disable it (just pressing the button).

Nonetheless it almost fits all your criteria.

My first recommendation is do not program the POWER button on the remote (if you leave it unprogrammed it can actually put your ADT-1 to sleep and wake [unfortunately I programmed it and now I cannot seem to get it to do that for the ADT-1]).

Secondly, I'd use the bottom 4 bottoms to control the TV usage. I programmed the bottom RED Button to turn TV on/off (via IR learning on the remote). Then I used the Blue and Yellow for Volume Control (again via IR Learning). I programmed the Blue to just change the input on my TV.

Ironically I think there is some sort of MIC on the device, but it does not seem to do anything (at least not on the ADT-1. I tried manually going to VOICE talking while it was listening and nothing.

It obviously has a keyboard, it is just fine for it's size.

I do use the number pad in the front with the HDHomerun TV input and that works too to change the channels!

Also if you use a keyboard remapper (I used https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=innerlife.keyboard.multilanguagekeymapredefiner) you can program a few of the keys to load certain applications. For example the little icon with the movie clapperboard actually with load up Google Music. So I decided to program a few of the buttons (the 4 squares) to load the tvinput, so it goes directly to that. I also programed the magnifying glass (to load Kodi). I say you can do this as some of the buttons will not do anything on ATV, so it's nice to make a few shortcuts to frequently used applications.

So overall I think it is actually a great choice for the ADT-1. I just wish that A) I didn't program that power button on the top to IR since it was nice to actually make the ADT-1 go to sleep (plus when I long pressed it, I had the option to actually shutdown). B) The Air mouse not being able to be permanently disabled (This being the biggest grippe).

Here are some techniques that other customers have used and had some success with.

A. Use a 2" long peace of Monofilament fishing line or dental floss as a saw to cut the 2-sided tape. Place the line between the device and the surface it is stuck to, and saw as you pull the line across the surface.

B. Using a dull butter knife by prying at the corner of the device and slowly work your way around the device while prying a little at a time.

abode does not sell the two sided tape so we recommend using the 3M or Scotch indoor-outdoor Mounting Tape, it is gray with a red peel off backing and you can cut to fit. Found at Walmart and your local hardware stores.

u/momodonut · 3 pointsr/DIY

No experience, but I read in a DnD forum that "wet" erase markers work a lot better. They're made for use on transparencies. These were mentioned specifically: Expo Vis-A-Vis Wet Erase Markers

u/PghDrake · 3 pointsr/DnD

For miniatures, be warned that the Heroclix and Mage Knight minis, while useable, are mostly larger than the 1" standard width (for a medium character or creature) - this is generally not that big of a problem but if you're going with modular terrain it means they may not fit well, especially along with other miniatures beside them.

Ebay is a good choice for miniatures, especially if you have particular needs for certain things - you want that male elf archer in leather armor, or are you looking for a beholder? You can find and get them there. Here's my favorite seller for these things, shipping is definitely reasonable and the choices are expansive:
http://www.ebay.com/usr/auggest?_trksid=p2053788.m1543.l2754

Another option to miniatures are tokens, and they are much, much cheaper. These are small cardboard circles that fit a 1" block as standard size (larger creatures will fill more, of course). The best starter set for this for a DM is the Monster Vault, but there are a ton of others as well. I suggest ebay for these for the most part, there are some that sell them by the sheet and others that sell the full boxed sets. You can get these for characters as well as monsters. Here's a link to the Monster Vault so you can see what you get with it:
http://www.amazon.com/Monster-Vault-Essential-Dungeons-Dragons/dp/0786956313/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1420725056&sr=8-2&keywords=dungeons+and+dragons+Tokens

Cheapest and most versatile "professional looking" option for the map / terrain is a chessex battlemat - make sure you have WET ERASE markers, not dry erase and keep it clean between adventures. Below are links to one of their mats (there are other sizes, just search on amazon) and to some excellent markers:
http://www.amazon.com/Chessex-Role-Playing-Play-Mat/dp/B0015IQO2O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1420724703&sr=8-1&keywords=chessex+mat

Cheapest option for modular-type terrain would be tiles. These are cardboard "grids" that most often have designs on them and come in different sizes. The best starter set out there is the Dungeon Tiles Master Set - The Dungeon. It has a lot of tiles and is pretty versatile, at least for base grid options like dungeons and general floors. There are a ton of other options for them - again I suggest you look on ebay for these because you can often find used ones that are in perfect shape sold as a set, or even individual tiles if there's something in particular you need. This is the link to the aforementioned base set on amazon so you can see what it has:
http://www.amazon.com/Dungeon-Tiles-Master-Set-Essential/dp/0786955554/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1420724907&sr=8-1&keywords=dungeon+tiles+master+set

If you want to spend more money and go with something much more dynamic, there are 3-d modular sets ranging from paper to near-stone like quality but they can cost a ton. I have a large set of Dungeonstone (www.dungeonstone.com) that I bring out and always get oo's and ahh's. But they're heavy to carry around a lot, especially if I need the whole set. Another option, that's generally slightly more expensive than dungeonstone is Dwarven Forge. You can look them up - but I only mention this in case you decide to spend more money than you want to at this point. :)

Good luck! I hope this helps.

Pilot's line of basic colors (Black, Blue-Black, and Blue) are among some of the best standard colors ever.

I'm a fan of Pilot Blue-BLack: https://www.amazon.com/Ink-350ml-INK350BB-japan-import/dp/B001P35A74

It's $23, but per mL of liquid, it's great (about 6 cents per mL).

It behaves well on cheap paper, is reasonably water resistant, shades, and flows well.

Paperweight is solid, it's well bound, can't rave enough.

But anyway, I find the benefit in that I'm less likely to forget important things and that (for me) writing something complicated helps me really think about it, where otherwise if I did it on a machine I'd just bang away at the keyboard and then move on, or worse, copy paste.

u/californiamoonbase · 3 pointsr/bulletjournal

Pilot pens are my favorite. I think the G-2 0.38mm ones write the best, but I also like the Percise V5 .

u/ugknite · 3 pointsr/cordcutters

I have been using Google Voice with obihai OBi100 for couple of years now. Haven't had a single issue. You can port your number to google voice.

u/iammolotov · 3 pointsr/Columbus

This is the right answer. OBi is even cheaper for upfront costs.

It uses your internet connection for VoIP, Voice Over Internet Protocol. You can even set up a Google Voice account to use with it, so you can give clients/whoever else one number, your Google Voice number. Then you can setup (and dynamically change) rules for forwarding calls to your house phone, cell phone(s), work phone if applicable, etc. You can vary it by number (friends/family always ring your cell, other numbers by default ring home phone), time of day, day of week, it's incredibly flexible.

u/G8351427 · 3 pointsr/Android

Do this, I did and it was a good idea.

Port your number to GV or get a new one.

Buy this: Obihai OBi100

And set it up to use your GVoice account. You can continue to use your phones as you are accustomed to, and GVoice will serve as your Voicemail/Answering machine. You can get the messages on your smartphone, Gvoice website, or call for them from the phone.

The Obihai is supposed to have a really high REN rating (5) so you could conceivably hook it directly to your house wiring and run all your phones with it.

I bought one of these a few months ago and then dug up my old cordless phone and now it's like I am living in the 90s again. Awesome.

u/brict · 3 pointsr/Frugal

Assuming you are in the US and calling the US. If you must make the calls on your iPhone (and don't want a home phone at all) options include:

• A Skype Number and unlimited Skype calling. ~$5-6/month.

• The Talkatone app lets you make and receive Google Voice calls over wifi. I have used the android version, it mostly works as advertised. One time cost/free with ads.

If you are okay with having an actual home phone/willing to buy a handset for that you should check out the Obi. Uses google voice for calling. This is my preferred solution, though it does depend on google keeping free calling via gmail around for the free calling. Should that be discontinued you could just sign up with a SIP provider. http://www.amazon.com/OBi100-Telephone-Adapter-Service-Bridge/dp/B004LO098O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377883447&sr=8-1&keywords=obi

Of note, none of these include emergency calling for free, with the Obi you can sign up for an emergency calling subscription too, but it'll cost you a couple bucks a month.

u/thndrchld · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

Here. Take $20 and buy this. Trust me on this. You'll save a lot of money, and they're AWESOME quality.

If you're playing a combat-intensive game (ask your DM) go to your local gameshop and buy a mini to represent you. Plastic would probably be best since you're new, but if you want to go all out, buy a pewter and paint it. You'll love it more.

PDFs are fine for books you're not going to reference often, but you're best off getting physical copies of the books. They're so much easier to work with. Check out your local used book stores. They're the best place to find this stuff, as most of it's out of print. Stay away from ebay on this. People WAY overvalue their books.

I've personally never played pathfinder, but I'm a D&D 3.5 vet. I've heard they're pretty similar. Any other questions I'll be happy to answer. Welcome to the life. You couldn't pick a better way to waste all you time and money :).

EDIT: Also, depending on your play surface, go buy a set of these. Make sure they're wet-erase, NOT DRY ERASE. Dry erase stain some play surfaces. Your DM will likely have a set, but they're usually... ahem... well used, and crappy. Buy a set of your own, take a pocket knife and scratch them in a particular spot to mark them, and guard them with your life.

u/PantsIsDown · 2 pointsr/Dungeons_and_Dragons

Awesome! That's how I play!

I also use flat glass marbles as place holders for NPCs that I don't have minis for. They were super helpful when I was first starting.
A graphing notebook and drawing paper
Mechanical pencils and a set of his favorite pens

I can't think of anything else

u/hm_joker · 2 pointsr/DMAcademy

The Chessex Wet Erase mat is the one I use and all my DM friends use (in various sizes). that being said, you'll want a pack of these bad boys, because the fine point really does help.

For minis, they're pretty expensive off that bat so everyone advises to buy them slowly as you need them. Reaper bones have a lot of cheaper mini sets for starting out which are great. Personally I buy a few of the most common enemy and the main bad guy for each campaign. A good and cheaper alternative are pawns that you can use while you build your collection. Or, just print small pictures of monsters and tape them to a coin or washer to make fast minis that have colored pictures.

For cheap/fast 2d terrain, check out papercraft. A lot of people fold and draw on paper or cardboard to make terrain, or you can print out pictures of stuff and add it to terrain. Here is an example from u/cardboard-DM (who makes awesome stuff).

Best of luck!

u/YourVirgil · 2 pointsr/dndnext

Yeah, get yourself a set of overhead projector markers like these. Permanent/wet erase/dry erase won’t work.

Also, pay an extra ten bucks for a Chessex Megamat, not a Chessex Battlemat. Your ranged characters will thank you for the larger area to work with. Chessex has three sizes of the vinyl mats: Battlemat (small, fits basically any table), Megamat (medium, fits dining tables), and Mondomat (better build your own gaming table for this bad boy).

In addition, the mats come with 1.5 or 1 inch squares/hexes (squares on one side, hexes on the other). Be sure to get the 1 inch size as this gives you more squares in the same area, and it properly scales with minis as the players fight larger monsters (a huge mini is four squares, but four 1.5 inch squares is a lot bigger than four 1 inch squares, and the mini will look smaller than the space on the grid that it actually threatens).

u/Hasjustbeenpwned · 2 pointsr/DungeonsAndDragons

First trick is deciding which edition you want to play, for new players I highly recommend sticking to 4th edition, the rules are simpler and combat is generally more interesting. If you guys are brand and are new starting with nothing, I highly recommend picking up the 4th edition DM Manual 1, Monster Manual 1, and the Player's Handbook 1.

If your DM wants to take his hand at designing his own adventures I also highly recommend picking up a wet erase play mat as well as wet erase markers. I recommend wet erase over dry erase as dry erase can easily be wiped off during combat and such.

You'll also want to buy some dice for everyone to use, there are a few ways to go about that, you can mismatch dice from local hobby shops, you could buy dice sets or you could purchase the Chessex "Pound of Dice" for the whole group's use and ease. I, as a highly superstitious gamer, own 2 dice sets of my own and an additional lucky D20 that I don't let anyone touch (as they'll likely suck the luck out of it), so figure out what kind of gamers you are and what dice will best suit you.

As you guys grow and expand you may want to look into getting the other Player's Handbooks, to increase your options as players, as well as the other monster manuals for easier adventure creation for your DM.

I also highly recommend your DM (for his ease in adventure creation) look into reading materials on the internet (easily found for free) to help create the most interesting and fun adventures possible. One I can recommend off-hand is Chris Perkin's (a writer for the D&D books and "professional DM") "blog" called "The DM Experience."

Also if you have any other questions feel free to ask me in a comment or message me, I love to see new player getting into the game and would like to help in any way possible.

Just be sure to have fun, happy gaming :D

u/JonTheBold · 2 pointsr/DungeonoftheMadMage

That is very cool, but I worry about your ability to stay ahead of your group with the foamcore maps, for several reasons:

  1. The maps aren't often linear, which means you'll probably need to be at least one full floor ahead of them in order to not get caught out.
  2. Not all locations are going to feature combat, which means you may end up preparing locations which never get used.
  3. Conversely, if you skip a location, you may end up needing to have it prepared if the party decides to chase a fleeing monster there or whatnot.
  4. The levels are positively HUGE. At one inch per 5 foot square, you're talking 10 square feet of map per level in many cases (some larger, some smaller).
  5. Creating smaller "room chunklets" might seem appealing as an alternative, but even that work is probably foiled by all of the variance in this dungeon (angled room features, caves and tunnels, and even "outdoor" locations).

    I honestly think you're best off buying a good Chessex battle mat and wet erase markers. That will give you the flexibility you need to map what needs mapping and narrate everything else.

    Personally, I've opted for a table insert with a high-res TV for digital maps, but that's out of the price range of most.

I wouldn't worry too much about having minis, and terrain, and everything as dnd is more about the imagination and sometimes too much detail at the table can detract from that. My friend runs his campaign mostly "theater of mind" style but has a little tiny dry erase board he draws on to show relative positions and obstacles and it works great.

Hope this helps!

u/Dourasin · 2 pointsr/Pathfinder

Phew This'll be a long a post, but certainly reward to read by the end of it. Playing D&D/Pathfinder really is the Nerdiest, Nerd thing I've ever done, and it is a lot of fun! Watch +DawnforgedCast's Session 0 video and download his checklist here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0FmGxmJLiw It's meant for a GameMaster/Dungeon Master, but that checklist will help you out greatly in understanding what you want when starting out in a new group, with or without veteran players. If you aren't able to find a group locally (I don't recommend online groups for your first introduction) then taking up the mantle of leadership as the GameMaster/Dungeon Master, can be both exciting and overwhelming at the same time. However, if you're one with a vivid imagination, or are good with thinking on the fly (believe me, it gets better with time) then you'll already have a headstart on the majority of GMs out there. A great beginning module that has a little bit of everything, adventure hook (i.e., reason why your players should be doing this), NPC interaction, wilderness adventuring, dungeon crawling, is the Hollow's Last Hope module for 1st Level Players as it works for both D&D and Pathfinder. You don't really need the print version, since you can download it for FREE at Paizo's website https://pathfinderwiki.com/wiki/Hollow%27s_Last_Hope

I greatly recommend you get the Pathfinder RPG: Beginner Box ($25-$35) https://www.amazon.com/dp/1601256302 it is a different game, but the rule set is uber-simplified and honestly, superior to the D&D Starter Set ($15), and is worth the extra money. The Beginner Box literally has the all of the beginning needs for play. Pre-generated characters, blank character sheets for the four classes (Wizard, Rogue, Cleric, and Fighter) with either of the three races (Elf, Dwarf, and Human) that are easy to introduce new players to, a flip out map that you can use dry-erase- or wet-erase markers, and permanent markers on (all of which can be erased off, I use these wet-erase makers that are $9 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00006IFGW because I'll draw camp fires with brown, yellow, orange, and red colors, green helps with trees and shrubbery, blue for water, and black for everything else), a Hero's handbook, and really, really, good GM guide, plus thick, cardboard punch-out marker pawns of various Monsters, NPCs, Player characters, and other creatures, that amount to a wealth of miniatures that would take a lot of money and time to paint them all up, plus they're easier to store in the box. Unfortunately, it only comes with one set of dice, so it wouldn't hurt to get these on these 7 sets ($12) on the cheap https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MDJNE93 and pass them out to your players, or if they have their own, then you'll have plenty of extra multiples of dice, which will come in handy during combat with spellcasters and sneak attacks by Rogues. I handed them out to my players after they told me what their favorite colors were. =P

That'd would be all you'd really need to start, $30ish Beginner Box, plus $10 for markers, and $10 more if you or your players need dice. Now, what follows is what I used for my first GMing of a game, based on many different people's recommendations. In order to make combat work in a logical way that I could understand, I bought the Pathfinder Combat Pad $20 https://www.amazon.com/dp/1601255470, along with those wet-erase markers from earlier. It's usefulness has been far better, and worth it's price in gold, to use than a cheap $1 store notebook, when I would have to erase or rewrite when players would defeat monsters or would hold their actions, or would tell them the wrong initiative bonus to start (lol!). Again, rather use a dollar store binder, I bought the Pathfinder GM Screen $16ish https://www.amazon.com/dp/1601252161, because it was short enough for me to look over rather than 3-ring binders or a paper folder at the actual game table. Speaking the table, I bought the Chessex Battlemats https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0015IQO2O this is a link to the smaller one ($20), since I bought the Megamat ($35), only because I had a large table, and players could use it as a coaster for drinks too (even though I did have coasters, to prevent spillage). As an added bonus, I recently discovered the Condition cards $10 https://www.amazon.com/dp/1601252854, to use with Pathfinder, and they are great to hand out to players (as you would already know these conditions since it's written behind the GM Screen) so they know what condition they are in at a glance. Keep in mind though, you only get 4 or each, so if you are lucky enough to have more players, it wouldn't hurt to buy an extra set (however, it would be strange if all of your players had the same condition).

Now, let's say you enjoy Pathfinder, and you bought the Core Rulebook $20 https://www.amazon.com/dp/1601258879 (if it's a hardcover, always look inside for the Sixth edition printing, the paperback will already be that edition) but are getting tired of looking up Monster stats online, then grab the Paperback version of the first Bestiary $16 https://www.amazon.com/dp/1601258887 which has the great majority of all of the "regular" monsters in either D&D or Pathfinder. If you're not much of an artist, then there's the recently released Pathfinder Traps and Treasures Pawns Collection $25 https://www.amazon.com/dp/1601259719 but be warned that you only want to place on the board AFTER the players find out what it is or after they trip it since it does have text explaining what it is as a trap, and if you're use the treasure ones, make sure you add whatever is actually printed on the tile is IN the list of treasure you give the players, because they can and will ask about, "can't I grab that cup or sword, it's on the tile?" ;)

Lastly, if you enjoy being the GameMaster/Dungeon Master, the storyteller, the world builder, then I'd recommend getting the Pathfinder Gamemastery Guide $15 https://www.amazon.com/dp/1601259492, which again, can be applied to both RPG games. And if you what better weather effects to throw at your party than what is presented in the CRB and GMG, then Pathfinder Ultimate Wilderness $30 https://www.amazon.com/dp/1601259867 has all that you need, and then some, plus some cool spells and tons of new animal companions and familiars for spellcasters alike, and a new shapeshifting melee-fighting class called the Shifter, which is pretty neat to use (albeit, you may want to check out Paizo's website for any official errata or clarifications, just in case). If you want to actually create a campaign and are having a hard time coming up with ideas, locations, groups/factions, kingdoms, races, then one more purchase, which is what +DawnforgedCast used for his Pathfinder games seen here is the Inner Sea World Guide $45 https://www.amazon.com/dp/1601252692 It is pricey, but again, very much worth it, to create your own world or to use the pre-made world, as well. Remember, the Beginner Box, Markers, and Dice is really all you need, the rest of this is to expand out. I hope this helps you and anyone else out as well. =P

u/KWiP1123 · 2 pointsr/DungeonsAndDragons

Solutions I've used in the past:

  • Vinyl battlemats with wet-erase markers (I've had more success with these over dry-erase).
  • Grid paper easel pads or grid paper rolls with your drawing utensil(s) of choice.
  • I used to have a simple tile-based dungeon maker app (I'll see if I can find it once I get home) that would export to an image that I'd then take to Office Depot and have them print on their large format engineering printer. It would usually be <$10 for all the maps needed for a one-shot adventure (B&W only).
  • Similar to above, I had another DM print gridless maps on large-format paper and just said that 1" = 5ft and let us move in any direction.
  • I've even played games simply on 8.5 x 11" graph paper. The DM would draw the map, and lightly draw where we were in pencil, erasing and redrawing when we moved.
  • At PAX, I saw DMs using full-color printouts on regular printer paper, and players and the DM would simply point out and explain on the map where they were and what they were doing, using theater-of-the-mind for everything else.

    There are tons of options, and you can do whatever works for you.

I don't know how much it would cost in Europe, but Pilot is quite cheap in America, especially if you buy it in large bottles. Here's a 350ml (almost 12oz) bottle of black ink for 20 USD. It's also available in blue-black and red. That comes in at

u/ProfessorVirani · 2 pointsr/education

Are you using the speedball nibs in dip pens, or in fountain pens (in which there is an internal ink supply and the pen does not need to be repeatedly dipped into the ink)? If the former, then India ink should work fine. If the latter, you would need to use an ink that specifically says it's for fountain pens.

If you end up needing fountain pen ink for the whole class, I think Pilot's 350mL bottles are the best bulk value around. https://www.amazon.com/Ink-350ml-INK350BB-japan-import/dp/B001P35A74

u/dajohnnyboy · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

Could get a Platinum Preppy or Pilot Varsity. I would recommend getting the Pilot MR Metropolitan for under $15. It includes a converter which allows you to refill your pen from a bottle of ink (much cheaper than buying cartridges). If you get the preppy and want to use bottle ink (much cheaper than cartridges), you will need to a converter for $5.

If you want some cheap ink, get [Pilot Blue Black](Ink 350ml INK350BB (japan import) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001P35A74/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_nBJMybE9X0Y0T). It's $22 for 350 mL ($0.06/mL) which should last a very long time. Cartridges are about $0.50/mL.

They're not fancy inks but I keep over 20 pens inked so I use primarily safe and simple inks these days... and I just love the flow and feel of Pilot's inks.

I remember looking for one a while back, and the only thing I could find was the crappy blue Moleskin that's 3.5" x 5.5".

I ended up ordering a Rhodia Webnotebook from Amazon. They're pretty nice. The pages are a little smooth for my taste but they handle pen and ink pretty well. They've also got a webbed sleeve in the back for holding misc.

The Leuchtturm 1917 is also very popular for dotted notebooks.

u/unproportionaterice · 2 pointsr/bulletjournal

I'm using a moleskine grid in A5 and it's been working great as a functional bujo for me. Love that it flips open to every page easily, and that the pages are not completely white! Pretty hardy imo. They have dot journals too, like what you're looking for.

I would say Leuchtturm1917 is one of the most popular options for bullet journals though. Here's the link for one A5 dotted I found on Amazon. Link

u/EphemeralGallbladder · 2 pointsr/ADHD

I think the best way to get into it is to just do it and see how it works out for you.

My suggestions would be:

  1. Watch this video if you haven't already
  2. Buy this notebook
  3. Buy Frixion pens (or some other erasable pen, I make too many mistakes personally)
  4. Receive items
  5. Start trying the bullet journal method

    If you get the pens above, be careful! Don't leave your journal in a hot car (I haven't yet, thank goodness) and if you do you can put it in the freezer for a bit.

    Bullet journaling is not the end-all be-all solution for me, my other primary tool is Habitica. I use Bujo as a calendar and a place to put my ideas down, as well as some important notes.

Leuchtturm1917 makes some awesome journals. 125 sheets of paper. A bit more sheets than rhodias webnotebooks, but the rhodia webnotebooks are 90gsm and leuchtturm1917 is only 70gsm. I think I would probably go with the rhodia because its a bit cheaper and if Im gonna be paying $20 for a notebook then I want the higher quality of paper. But who knows. Im pretty new to fountain pens and fancy paper, so I really cant compare 70, 80, or 90 gsm paper.

For $39.00 I purchased this: ObiHai Obi100 and have attached it to my phone. It is now my primary home phone and works with Google voice like a charm. I get free calls to my family on the other coast, and I don't use up my mobile minutes. I also added an Anveo e911 account so that emergency calls route the police to the proper address. (it can do two SiP voice providers at once, in case you wanted one for international calling and google for just North America) Obi also has apps for android and iPhones that allow you to use your Obi on your mobile, so if I am on any wifi network, I can call from my mobile and not use minutes.)

It is the best Google voice accessory I have ever bought, and I haven't looked back since.

u/saucercrab · 2 pointsr/homedefense

Absolutely. Sorry if I wasn't clear enough in my lengthy post, but having no landline was really the motivation for the whole writeup (that, and not wanting to pay a monthly fee).

If you're already familiar with Google Voice, order an OBI 100 (not the 110, which allows you to use a landline as well) and you'll have it set up in 5 minutes.

u/AaronOpfer · 2 pointsr/pittsburgh

Avoid satellite at all costs. Not worth it. You're paying more for less.

Verizon FiOS is where you want to be, ideally, just due to the technology being superior. Latency, signal quality and bandwidth are all excellent. I have coworkers who have the 300Mbps plan from them and love it (they're definitely power users!). The most basic plan of FiOS will probably treat you mostly well, some others might have to jump in and comment on this as I don't know this stuff personally.

Comcast is mediocre. Their residential side is very unfriendly if you're a power user. They have strict data caps, and violating the data cap three times in a row bans you from their service forever. If you consider yourself a power user (lots of streaming content, large downloads, steam games, etc), you might want to just go with their business level service. You don't have any data caps and if you have an issue with your internet someone to look at it will be out in hours instead of days. The plan isn't awfully expensive either (60/month for 12/2mbps in my area). The drawback is the 200 dollar installation fee and the minimum year-long commitment (or 100 dollar fee for 2 years, 50 dollars for 3). If you break the contract you pay 75% of the remainder of the commitment. So if I broke my contract right now two months into the contract, I'd pay 60 10 .75 = 450 dollars, ouch!

As for your other services...

I see you're bundling phone. There's a very good chance you can get by with much less expensive VoIP phone service (especially if you already use cell phones in your family) and drop the expensive telephone plans. Check out Google Voice; it's a free telephone number that does all sorts of neat tricks and features for you. Then, combine it with the OBi100 so that you have "landline" phones that use Google Voice's free telephone service. It's free calls to the US and Canada, and pretty low international rates. What's the catch? You need your internet connection to be on to get phone calls (but you can get these forwarded to your cell phones too), and you can't make 911 calls from your Google Voice powered phones.

As far as the TV... that's more tricky and I don't have a good answer for you, because I don't even have TV installed at my place and don't care for it. Try reading up in /r/cordcutters about ways to cut the cord. There's a lot of online media options available now with netflix and hulu plus, and many other streaming options too. They can help you with those.

I currently have two monitors, one 24" one and another small square one. I can definitely see myself using three though. I'm always having to have multiple windows open on both monitors.

How would you compare the Duronic DM653 to the Ergotech?

u/KARMA_P0LICE · 2 pointsr/computers

I have the Ergotech and I love it.

Very stable, easy to adjust, and the quick release clips for the two side monitors is very handy for when I need to pack the stand up and transport it.

u/Emerald_Flame · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Ergotech makes pretty much the best monitor stands around: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007BD0MPM/

u/BratalixSC · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I first bought a similar stand for my 3 monitors, but I found that the angle wasnt good enough so in the end I tried a couple others but ended up with this one:

http://www.amazon.com/Ergotech-Triple-Stand-Telescopic-100-D16-B03-TW/dp/B007BD0MPM

Its really good and saves you alot of space and looks nice. I'm not going back from using one. I agree with what Phazon_Metroid said, that if you want to move them its gonna be a hassle, but Im getting older and dont go to LAN's like ever anymore :)

u/HB1233 · 2 pointsr/battlestations

I do..a lot. I like doing a lot of editing so having three screens is very much helpful. Sometimes I start thinking that 3 monitors (for me personally) isn't enough lol.

u/dngrCharlie · 2 pointsr/TripleScreenPlus

So I just did this and got this:

Ergotech Triple Desk Stand with Telescopic Wings (100-D16-B03-TW)

I'm reasonably happy with it but be aware that the base is very big so you kind of need a deep desk to make it work well (IMO!). I'm not sure if it will work well on your desk.

However, I did want to say that you should get the next size up stand for whatever your monitor size is. For example, if it says "support up to three 21" displays" consider it too small for you and get the stand that support three 24" monitors (unless you just want all three monitors in a straight line). If you want to be able to angle the outside monitors, you will need the ability to extend them just a bit further.

This is what mine looks like with three 24" monitors.

This is the one I use and it does a pretty good job. The only thing is it's super heavy so I would get a desk that can support it and sadly the ikea linnmon can't just by itself

u/trippleguy · 2 pointsr/battlestations

I'm using one with a similar design to this one, and I'm very much satisfied. It says it supports up to 24", but if I'm not wrong, those are some dell 25" with tiny bezels to fit well below the 24" max size.

Another one, which looks even more promising

u/Todesfaelle · 2 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

Follow up from this post.

The monitor came in and it's damn near in pristine condition save for very, very, very minimal scuff marks on the bottom front bezel which you can't even see even in a lit room.

No dead or stuck pixels, excessive bleeding, banding or surprises. Still has the AOC sticker on the bezel too! Saved me a cool $250.

Bought a VIVO triple monitor vesa setup but one arm seems to be lower than the other even with max adjusting so I don't know. Maybe I put a bracket on upside down.

I also bought this Jeyi Knight (Lol) M.2 adapter from the land of China for $26 about a month ago and it has lowered my MX500 1TB drive by 5c and my ADATA SX6000 256GB by about 20c while under synthetic stress.

Looks pretty nice too. Not sure how much air it's sucking up in the bottom slow though since it's pretty close to the PSU shroud.

Though it has alot of issues, it barely fit just the 3 24 inchs, the 2 side monitors didn't have an angle due to the arms being to short. The ultrawide in the center is a bit heavy for the mount which i need to add a shim to. To get the 2 side verticals to fit on the side I had to add some custom made steel brackets that extended the vesa mounts out another 5cm.

u/Djvacto · 2 pointsr/buildapc

I've loved this Vivo triple monitor mount. Iirc it supports up to 27" monitors, and once you adjust & tighten the arms it's fantastic.

u/Cartman372 · 2 pointsr/simracing

Thanks! Yeah the different size monitors are far from ideal for multi monitor gaming, but it's not so bad. What I do is set the game to windowed mode, then stretch the window to the dimensions of my screen. Due to my center screen being taller in resolution than my outer monitors, some stuff gets cut off the top and bottom on the side monitors. It's not really an issue, but some games do have their huds on the top and bottom corners. So you have to watch out for that. Running a setup like this though you can not setup EyeFinity or nVidia Surround as the differing resolutions mess it up. But Live for Speed and all Codemasters racing games support the windowed method I've listed. Any other game I just run single screen.

My stand is a VIVO Triple Monitor Stand (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009S7ALH8). If you're looking into doing a triple monitor setup, I would not suggest this stand. I've had my share of problems with it and I can not get my side monitors to sit height centered with my main (so alignments are a bit off in games). Good triple stands are expensive. Once the summer rolls around I'm going to build my own mount to solve my problems.

u/yomikins · 2 pointsr/math

Many of my favorites have been discontinued or changed.

The Koh-i-Noor Rapidomatic was my primary pencil for my first 4 college years. I even bought a red and blue colored versions to put red and blue lead in, which was nice for graphs or occasional emphasis. Lovely pencils made in Japan. However, looking at the Amazon reviews they no longer make these, but instead something with the same name and general look, but using all new parts and process in China. You can taste the sadness in the reviews. It looks like people are happy with the Alvin Draftmatic which looks exactly like the Rapidomatic.

The Pilot Vanishing Point has been discontinued. Sad. My favorite pencil, made in Japan. See reviews on Amazon. I introduced a number of people to this, and many of them started using it as their primary pencil. My manager even questioned why I had spent $200 on pencils, when I explained I was ordering a couple of these for myself, asked around, and 10 others in the office said they wanted one or two as well (after trying mine). No drafting grip, and shorter, but really good weight, good feel, quality, and I could write well with them.

The Uni Kuru Toga is nice, but too lightweight and plastic for my taste. The price is hard to argue with. I wonder if the Roulette model would be better as it sounds like it might weigh more.

Dave's review site recommends the Staedtler 925-25. I've tried the 925-05 which is ok (my 11yo uses it) but not the 925-25.

If you have more money, the Rotring 600 and 800+ come highly recommended (lots of metal, high quality, made in Japan). I have never tried one, but I'll buy a 600 sometime soon.

For erasers, I use Staedtler Mars Plastic. They last forever -- I still have one from 1985 with more than half remaining and it works fine. I only bought more so the family can each have one of their own. My tips are (1) don't get oil on them or the paper, and get it off if you do. This means don't run your finger along the eraser part. It causes smearing. (2) erase flat if you can, to save sharp edges for fine work. If you always use the edges, then you won't have a sharp edge to change φ' to φ in the middle of an equation.

Get a wrist rest, there's all sorts of options out there.

>The keys feel like they got a sort of chrome(?) finish to them. It's a really strange feeling and sometimes when I type my fingers make a tiny squeaking noise because I move my fingers from one key to another before the first key is back all the way up.

That's probably just the stock UV coated keycaps. They're the cheapest to manufacture but also don't feel all that great. You might look into buying some aftermarket non-coated ABS or PBT keycaps.

Oh my god yes the Klipsch sound system is incredible!

It's not perfect. Almost everything works out of the box except for the back button, which apparently is read as a right mouse click instead. The ESC key on the back sort of works as a back button but its wonkey. I had to download a key remapping app to make the ESC key the back button. The keyboard is also super wonky but maybe I just got a bad one. In my case, it will either work perfectly fine, or the keys are suddenly remapped to something ridiculous (the r key becomes a volume key or the i key becomes the back button or something stupid like that). The air mouse works extremely well and is great if you plan on side loading apps.

Again, I think I may have just gotten a defective one because the keyboard issue I mentioned also happened on an mxiii box I used to have (the back button worked perfectly fine on that though). I might look into some of the other ones mentioned in this thread as a replacement.

Why not get get an all in one like the one I use or this one maybe this is more to your liking. A couple more essentially identical and awkward options are this one and this one. There's more choices too if you didn't like those, take this one for example or if you just want to have some fun (doesn't have keyboard, consider it an honorable mention). These are links to universal remotes with a keyboard on the back. Some have trackpads like those found on laptops, while some use an "air mouse" (think Wii control). Some use regular batteries (AA/AAA) while others use built in rechargeable batteries.

About a year ago I started looking around for a way to control my TV and HTPC with one remote. I originally wanted to go with a FLIRC paired with a Harmony control to use so that I could use WMC (with Youtube, Hulu+, Netflix and Plex "plugins"). Ultimately I decided against it due to the lack of a keyboard. After looking around I stumbled upon these. I went with the Rii due to the form factor and the WAF.

--Below is my review of the "Rii mini i13 4 in 1 Wireless Multmedia Air Fly Mouse Keyboard (Black)"--

I am mostly pleased with this setup but there are a few kinks, most notably the battery. At first it was great, no batteries to swap out and it held a charge for about a month before it was time to recharge. But now, a year later, I have to recharge it every couple days. It still works fine but I don't know if I should buy another one, try to replace the battery when it does die, or try something different. There is no way EASY way to open it, and honestly I don't think it could withstand to many battery swaps since it's made of this flimsy plastic. Truly think I'm lucky to have had it as long as I have.

Another thing is that the buttons themselves feel indistinguishable from one another which makes night time use/viewing a bit difficult, wish there was a backlight. I'd also like to mention that I have an issue with the mouse.

As mentioned earlier the mouse is similar to using a Wii, with one difference the Wii pointer only goes to where you aim the control. This mouse works with relative motion to move the cursor. Imagine you just scrolled the cursor to the far right corner of your monitor, you can keep moving your mouse further right but the cursor won't move any further. That means if you did a 180° then you'd still be controlling the mouse even though you are now facing the wall. This makes navigation a little frustrating. Add to that the mouse's sensitivity mixed with no stabilization makes clicking and dragging a chore. Never realized I had a shake in my hands until I held this remote. I remedied this by simply disabling the mouse in Windows. I realized I wasn't using it so I disabled it.

The last thing I had issues with was that there is no real concrete instruction manual. Just some small quick start guide. After spending some time with it, I rather enjoyed experience.

This would let you control your PC as well as the TV in a single control.

Also with IR blasters, you can allways hide the bulky box and use IR externders to control the TV. It would be a small little cable that would do it.

  1. No major problems with Kodi/Kodibuntu. You will have to use the command line to update to the latest Kodi build as it ships with 15 I think. Simple "apt-get update", "apt-get upgrade", and "apt-get dist-upgrade" as sudo will get everything up to date.
  2. AMD Sempron 3850 Kabini worked just fine for Kodibuntu for me. Don't see why yours would be any worse.
  3. This (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00K768DHY/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1) is the remote I use. Has a gyro mouse and works very well for me. The only problem with mine is that when using the keyboard it does not work correctly.

    The only feedback I would have besides that is do you have a way to run ethernet? Wireless is not ideal for an HTPC unless you have a good connection(little interference).

    Also to your point of Steam games: if you have a gaming PC you can always use Steam In-Home Streaming to play them. Steam has a Linux client and you can definitely install it on Kodibuntu.

Until you can get the locks changed and install a deadbolt, get yourself one of these door jammers pronto. You only use it when you're inside, so it doesn't violate any landlord right to entry (since you can let them in when you're home.)

You'd be better off staying in your dorm than venturing out in almost every situation. If I were you I'd get two or three of those collapsible 5 gallon water jugs (you can fill up form a showerhead or tub) and get at least two week's worth of dehydrated food or MREs. If you don't have a bathroom in your dorm room you should find some way to get rid of your urine/feces. A painters bucket from Home Depot with a top would do well, as long as you can dump it out your window if needed. I would stock up on baby wipes- more than you think you'd need- put those in the bucket. Get a crowbar and hammer so you can open up other rooms to forage if you need to- you can use pillow cases in the rooms to put things in. Get a can opener and a spoon. Get a baseball bat for defense- looks innocent enough on its own and won't raise hard to answer questions. Your dorm room has a solid door and you have all of your clothing and bedding there- so plan on bugging in and stay quiet. If you can afford it, get a [door jammer] (https://www.amazon.com/DoorJammer-Portable-Security-Device-Travel/dp/B00N95IVSQ/ref=sr_1_3?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1479072334&sr=1-3&keywords=door+security) to secure your door when you're in your room. Do not open your door to anyone or you risk losing what you have stocked up. Get duct tape and giant black lawn leaf bags so you can cover up windows if you have to. Have a small bag full of things to make [improvised alert system] (http://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/detroit/2014/09/05/detroit-fire-department-has-alert-system-made-of-pop-cans/77199950/) for your hallways.

I'm not a big guy, and they're kinda expensive, but I got a HERCULES Series 500 lb. Capacity Big & Tall Black Fabric Executive Swivel Office Chair with a set of caster wheels and it's the best chair I've ever had. Super comfy and easy to roll around.

u/DesperatePleasure · 2 pointsr/AskMen

I used to have this chair as I work from home and I thought it would improve my gaming. /s

It sucked. No breathing for my skin and overall just bad and loose. Did not construct well.

Just got this chair with these wheels and I think it is totally worth it.

More comfortable, definitely breathable for long hours and my ass isn't sore from sitting in it all day.

u/Komm · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

These are the ones I actually have, as far as I can tell they are all the same though. I just went with the ones I linked because the company is super helpful about stuff. Like I said though, far as I can tell, they are all the same caster.


Come to think of it, I need to order another pair. I've acquired yet another desk and chair, this time in the garage. Plastic casters ain't gonna hold up very long out there from experience.

u/megaheat · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

They came in basically brand new. No dead pixel, no scratches. 144hz, 1440p and freesync works as advertise. You can get the VESA adapter for about $30 on Amazon and fix that adjustable stand issue.

u/Leov2 · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

I've purchased two scratch and dent XG270HU's and one of them was pretty much flawless, there was no sign it had ever been used. Another one had a scratch on the glossy part of the base, that's about it.

Excellent monitors that you can't go wrong with in any way, shape or form EXCEPT no vesa and a very short stand. At this price point saying "Oh it's TN," as a con is like saying a Nissan Versa doesn't handle like a Porsche. Stating it as a spec though is important and still important. This does have a quality TN panel as far as TN goes, the colors are nice and weren't washed out on either one I purchased.

As for the orange, eh, I don't see it as a big deal. I'll upload a small album of my set up changing throughout a year so you can see it just blend in with everything or be apart of the mess. Some of the pictures are from timestamp albums for things I was selling hence the multiple keyboards/mess. Album

There is an adapter to vesa mount it for sale on Amazon, it's $31.99 which is a pretty penny but if you must mount it at least you can. A monitor stand would also get you some more height if you need it.

u/joyfulali · 2 pointsr/chromeos

I'd like to chime in here because I am in the exact same position as you, wanting a note-taking device for college (grad school in my case).

I got the Chromebook Plus Version 1 because of the following:
-form factor - it's basically the size of a regular notepad, so really great for notetaking (I use Squid)
-ability to use linux apps (not that I have, but that I could)

I really like it, and have had a lot of comments about my setup. I got the Staedtler Noris Digital Pencil for handwriting notes - this is an amazing improvement over the built in stylus, which isn't bad to begin with.

I'm not a huge fan of the keyboard, but the CBP might be better. I find it cramped, but am getting used to it.

The surface is soft and marks/scratches. Not sure if that matters to you.

Your biggest challenge will be to find the right combination of apps to make a workflow that is good for you. I work mostly in squid, where I can import pdfs to mark up, and also do handwritten notes on lined "paper", or other types of "paper" markings. Some people choose to send squid documents to Evernote so that they can be OCR'd and thus searchable, but I have found this workflow to be cumbersome. I'm still trying to get the right workflow myself and welcome anyone else's suggestions.

I used a chromebook all the way through my MBA as my exclusive computer. When I did my MS in Data analytics I needed to install specific software on a Windows laptop. Now, in a PhD program, I can do most of my work on my Chromebook which is nice and portable, but I still need my Windows laptop for specific software.

I hope this helps somewhat. If you have the opportunity, get some hands-on time with the device to make sure that it works for you. With using it in tablet mode for note taking especially - the form factor will matter (not too big, not too narrow...)

Happy to answer more questions if you have any, acknowledging that I have a different model than the one you are looking at.

u/TCMGhost · 2 pointsr/chromeos

Forgot to mention you will want to pick up a different stylus for the Chromebook for heavy usage. The portability is excellent with the provided stylus but it is designed as a "add on" for people doing quick notes rather than the professional artist. My hand does cramp due to the barrel size of the provided stylus. While the ones I linked aren't the only choices you need to make sure you get the ones designed for the older Surface tablets and/or Wacom compatible technology. I think there are a few subreddits posted about this in the Samsung Chromebook subs...
Some choices are:
https://www.amazon.com/Staedtler-Digital-Samsung-Technology-GP-U999ERIPAAB/dp/B072N31S7C/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1525439437&sr=8-4&keywords=chromebook+pro+stylus

u/xillin · 2 pointsr/stylus

The following devices all have Wacom EMR digitizers and would for example work with the Staedtler noris digital ($27)

  • chromebook plus about $400
  • chromebook pro about $500
  • Galaxy tab S3 about $450
  • Acer Chrome OS tablet to be released in the coming weeks, $329
  • Lenovo 500e about $300


    Which one you want probably depends on whether you want a keyboard or not and how much you value screen size, resolution and quality (All except the lenovo are "retina", either 12 inch 3:2, 10 inch Amoled or 9.7 4:3 Ipad screen or garbage for the lenovo one).

    Appwise, Inkredible Pro is pretty nice as is LectureNotes. Inkredible has nicer pens and design, but LectureNotes has more features.
u/Sumpfgas · 2 pointsr/e_pad

I've tested the Wacom pen of my Lenovo Yoga Book (ZA0V0256DE) and the Stadtler Noris Digital ( https://www.amazon.de/Staedtler-Samsung-Bleistift-Technologie-gp-u999eripaab/dp/B072N31S7C ). Both worked fine on the E-Pad.
Next week I'll try the Wacom CS-400 Bamboo Stylus feel carbon ( https://www.amazon.de/Wacom-CS-400-Pr%C3%A4zisions-Eingabestift-ausgew%C3%A4hlte/dp/B00A7IIES0 ) and the Samsung EJ-PT820BSEGWW S Pen. I think the will show proper function as well.

Worked great with my Note 8... all 2 hours until I put it in my back pocket walking to a meeting... then sat down.


Pro Tip- don’t put in back pocket...

Was able to epoxy the parts together, but it was never the same... a bit bent feeling and weakened at the repair points.

FYI: the body of the pencil is just like a normal pencil (even with a lead like center). It only the area that looks like a sharpened pencil tip that has the S-Pen -parts

It works really well with my Chromebook Pro and feels more natural for drawing than the original stylus. Of course, it doesn't fit into the stylus slot on the keyboard, so I just keep it in my pencil cup.

u/meatwaddancin · 1 pointr/chromeos

Snapping Android windows came out last week in Chrome OS 65 😁

I can't say for certain because I haven't used a Wacom pad recently, but I believe Chrome OS does support them natively. Swear i tried one on my old Cr-48 I think. Just buy from somewhere with a return policy and try one out!

I've had trouble finding docks with 2 USB C female ports (same for battery packs), seems to just be because of the times. In the future I'm sure they'll exist.

Finally as a side note, if you're into using the stylus (on your Chromebook screen), someone on Reddit once suggested this, and it's pretty awesome: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072N31S7C

You are better off taping/modding the pen.

Lots of people love the Staedtler stylus (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072N31S7C) ... I think it's pretty neat but I'm not a fan of carrying extra shit around, so mine stays next to my bed 24/7.

I did pick up a GearVR and ... ehhhh... some people love it but I just am not impressed by the quality of the games available nor by the quality of most 360 YouTube videos. I mean you can pay $8 for a game that nobody would play for FREE if it weren't for the novelty of wearing your phone on your face.

Otherwise, it depends what you want to do, maybe get one of those attachable lenses to enhance the camera. Maybe get a case that can hold a couple of credit cards and cash so that you can try to go without a wallet.

Edit : It's not. Looks like the WSGF version has a 5th pivot which is what will enable me to angle my 24" at 35/40 degrees

u/shelms488 · 1 pointr/techsupport

Well, if that's the case, and this may interest you as well, why not use a triple monitor arm? Like this one from Ergotech as long as your monitors have a vesa mount (most modern monitors do.)

I use the Ergotech Freedom Arm for my 34" Ultrawide and it's very solidly built so the company makes quality products. However, if price is a big factor there are other companies out there that make similar items for cheaper with varying quality.

u/cnliberal · 1 pointr/battlestations

You don't have to use DisplayPort. These monitors have 2 DP (one mini, one regular), a DP out (for daisy chaining) and 2 HDMI (with MHL). I've not had issues with the HDMI ports. They wake the monitors up successfully. Its just when I turn on DP1.2 in the menu that I have issues with the DP waking the monitors up.

I have these monitors on an Ergotech triple monitor stand with telescopic wings. There's a version without the telescoping arms but that will not fit these monitors.

I love the slim bezels. I dislike the fact that the power light is on the bottom of the lower bezel. I dislike the touch buttons on the bezel as opposed to real buttons. I've had to get used to turning the monitors off a certain way (when they're asleep). Who knows, maybe Dell will release a FW update to the monitors to fix the sleep issues.

It's an 18" square base basically and it's really flat so you can put thing's on it no problem, even a keyboard if you're that space limited though then you're sitting real close.

I believe Playseat TV Stand PRO is the formal solution. I personally ended up modified an existing monitor stand I was given as a hand-me-down and it seems to do the job just fine (Ergotech Stand + Steel Tubing). Considering I only had to purchase the tubing, you could say it was a real 'steel'.

It's great, will hold up to 27" screens and the outside arms tilt in as well as the mounts the actual monitors are on so there is plenty of angle. You can also turn them to portrait view if you would like.

Also the little knobs on top of the outside monitor mounts will move the outside screens up or down independently of the other screen so you can adjust as needed.

I have one of these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007BD0MPM

It claims it supports 3 x 27" monitors. I have 3 x 24" on it and I could believe it - there's still a lot of room to move them out despite me having them mounted in a line without too much inward tilt on the monitors.

It's not cheap and it weighs a shitton when fully loaded. I can't remember whether it comes with a wall mount in the box, so you'd need to verify that. It'd need to be a sturdy wall too.

I think you're pretty much out of luck trying to find one bracket that'll do 3 x 30", they're not only ridiculously heavy but also huge width-wise.

If you put a monitor on the cubby and angle them in, you can fit three 24" monitors. I ran two Dell E2414HM's on the sides and an S2415H in the center, all on their regular stands (though I eventually cut a whole in the back to fit a triple monitor stand).

It's surprisingly not that wobbly. YMMV because it's still a snap-together desk, but shakiness has never been an issue with mine.

u/rcioffe · 1 pointr/Monitors

You can get a stationery monitor mount, which allows you to pull the screen closer, tilt, and rotate, but doesn't allow individual height adjustment for each monitor such as this.


Or you can get three individual mounts, which allow full mobility (up, down, closer, farther, & rotate) such as this.

There's double/triple versions of these as well. Double. Or Triple.

Good brands include: Ergotron, Ergrotech, VIVO, & Amazon's version. Mount-It and Cable Matters both make some as well, but I haven't used these ever.

OK, well I have been a mechanical pencil hater forever but that may be unfounded. The quick blunting is a pain in the ass. Would you recommend this Rostring for writing? Expanding my knowledge of pencils is the most productive thing to come out of my Trump hate/fascination today.

u/ender4171 · 1 pointr/mechanicalpencils

That's about the average price for that particular version. FYI, Camel Camel Camel is a must-have tool if you are shopping Amazon. You can track the price history, set alerts when a price drops, and they even have a handy Chrome plugin so you can just click the icon when you are on an amazon page instead of going to the 3camels website. I highly recommend it. For instance, I just got an alert yesterday because the Rapid Pro I was tracking dropped to $22.

Read the title and came here to recommend getting a mechanical pencil, and it looks like you were already thinking about it!

My rOtring 600 should be here tomorrow. Pretty psyched about it.

A good eraser is also a life changer.

u/michaelguest · 1 pointr/GetStudying
u/Jenaxu · 1 pointr/NoStupidQuestions

/r/mechanicalpencils is a good place to look. Generally it depends on your budget and what you want to do with your pencil. You can get some nice cheap ones (under 5 bucks) like a Pentel Sharp or Pentel Twist Erase, and some slightly more expensive but still cheap ones with gimmicks like the Kuru Toga (automatically rotating lead) and Zebra DelGuard (reduced lead breakage). If you want to spend some more on a more solid and well built pencil the Pentel Graphgear 1000 is a great option for around $10. And then you can keep going up with the Sharp Kerry, Staedtler, rOtrings, and the Orenznero.

Right now though, there's a incredible deal on Amazon for the next three hours, the rOtring 600 for about 9 dollars. All metal, really nice looking, great weight and balance, usually considered a $25 dollar pencil that is pretty close to the top end of nice mechanical pencils. Just don't lose it or drop it!

You can track the pricing on the rOtring 600 0.5mm on Amazon.
I've been tracking the rOtrings for quite some time now and I'd say the prices are actually dropping.

u/VariXx · 1 pointr/AskBattlestations

I've never had a setup like this but I'd imagine you could combine or buy a dual monitor arm with a single monitor mount also attached to it and tilt as needed then retighten the bracket.

Something like this might work. Make sure it will support the measurements and weight of your monitors though.

u/ExplodingLemur · 1 pointr/amateurradio

u/Retrograde_Z · 1 pointr/battlestations

It's actually mounted to my desk, drilled a hole through the top as the c-clamp that it came on would not work with my specific desk.

The stand is a Vivo Triple monitor mount (https://www.amazon.com/VIVO-Monitor-Adjustable-Screens-STAND-V003T/dp/B00B1D03GQ/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1540844500&sr=8-7&keywords=vivo+triple+monitor+mount) and I flipped the arms so that the 34 inch screen was on the bottom and the two 22 inche ones were on the top.

u/MrShakeyDownDowns · 1 pointr/battlestations

thanks for the reply! I could assume you have the third monitor on its own pole or the wall. Can you elaborate a little on "not quite as nice" for me? I looked at that very mount but I worry about it giving out / losing strength and not being able to keep elevated.
 
These two are my current top choices:

My main concern is having the whole thing be wobbly and unstable. I'm not sure my IKEA desk could even handle the weight of a triple mount.... I also would not be able to stand having the paired monitors being uneven / not lined up perfectly if the extension arms sag. >.< so much indecision, I also am thinking about this mount from Dell:

I bought one of those for my wife and it takes up about 70% of desk space two monitors on their own would, but it's solid as a tank and I know it will work.

if you talking about for my legs under the desk, then yes i would agree, i usually end up resting my feet on my subwoofer, i may just get rid of the PC that's under there since i only use it maybe once or twice every 3 months.

For the mounts i use a VIVO Triple monitor mount they works pretty well for my 2x 27" monitors and would recommend it. The worst part was putting it together, granted i never have put anything like that together before.

u/UnDeaD_AmP · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

For me, the feel is good. A bit mushy for about a week, but afterwards, if you can touch type, I'd say its perfect. The bumps do help a TON with tactility. As a high school senior, I've only written a couple long session papers on this but from my experience its really awesome. If i have one recommendation for this board for typing, i'd say get a wrist rest since it sits high in my opinion. I got the Grifiti fat wristrest and now I can game and type for hours. (: About 3 months into this combination and i really like it.

u/King_of_All_the_Land · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

You could always get just a keyboard and also one of these.

Massdrop have the CM Storm Quick Fire Stealth for pretty cheap right now, it's a great board and together with the wrist rest it should cost you about $100 depending on shipping.

u/sankawr · 1 pointr/battlestations

Grifiti but I've been looking at others such as the Glorious PC Gaming Race to match my mouse pad or the Ducky to match my full size Ducky.

u/strig · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

S Pro looks awesome. I have a model down from that, the QuickFire Rapid with brown switches. Amazing keyboard.

I would highly recommend getting a grifiti wrist rest for it. It fits perfectly with this keyboard form factor and makes typing a lot more comfortable.

u/Depariel · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

I haven't used that one specifically, but I have been using this one recently, and I like it pretty well. I had one of those generic gel ones before, and it also worked well.

u/Hundike · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

If you want a TKL I have the Ducky Zero with reds for gaming and I'm very happy with it. Blue switches are probably nicer but we decided we're gonna go for the quieter ones for now (my partner has a Ducky Shine 3 with browns, those are really nice as well). If you don't need a number pad I would highly recommend a TKL, it's very comfortable and saves a surprising amount of space on your desk.

I would recommend this keyboard and this wrist pad - it comes a bit over £100 but it's well worth it. Or if OCUK has some deals running grab something else, the reviews are quite good there.

u/TimmyLA · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards
u/GentlemanAtHeart · 1 pointr/bapcsalescanada

Same here, only thing I'd say is a real negative about this keyboard is the lack of an included wrist rest. I'll be ordering this wrist rest soon to fix this issue.

u/mmichaeljjjfoxxx · 1 pointr/kodi

I've had my eye on this for a while. I have no idea how good it is, but if you buy one, please let me know what you think of it. Looks like it would be good for the simplicity of a media remote, but also useful for the versatility of a mouse and keyboard when needed. Plus the ir can be programmed to operate your TV too. Sorry, I know this is pretty much the opposite of what you're asking. I'm sure you already know, but there are apps for basically all devices that work as a remote. It's what I usually use.

u/JesJHoward · 1 pointr/kodi

I use this: remote
I've had to change a few buttons around using autohotkey, but it's been the best solution I could find without spending a lot. It also has 5 learning ir buttons to control your TV, or sound system as well. The power button turns the TV on and off, one at the bottom changes inputs on the TV, and the last two changes the volume on my receiver. It's also an air mouse and has a keyboard. My wife is the same way, and she seems to like it. Good luck!

u/fpsfreak · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

hows the mouse function on ipazz ? I bought this yesterday and its a piece of crap to say the least. I just need something compact with a kayboard and ability to click forward and backward while watching a movie instead forwarding and reversing like film days.

u/rocketmonkeys · 1 pointr/xbmc

I've seen this around too, had to hunt through amazon. "MX3 remote" seems to be its name, though it's generic so hard to find a specific one. There appear to be at least two versions; one with red "X" and mouse icons under the OK button, and another with blue icons. They may be the same, they may be different clone manufacturers. There's no telling.

Amazon/prime shipping, lots of reviews, $25... I'll probably order this one:

It's funny; if there were one brand and this got a good reputation, they might sell more. But since it's generic (and may have multiple manufacturers), there's no way to know. The nature of generic goods. Hopefully they're consistently good.

u/treowayne · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

This thing is pretty good for what it is. It would be nice if it had foldable legs to make it more comfortable for the rare occasions you have to type a lot with it.

u/JimboLodisC · 1 pointr/chromeos

Sounds like getting another set top box from Comcast would be the best option. Especially if you are wanting to access stuff on your DVR with fast forwarding being a major feature.

You could also look into a streaming box like a Roku, FireTV, or Android TV product. They would need to have an Xfinity app, but fast-forwarding might be tricky without support for a Harmony remote. I've seen $16 remotes on Amazon so maybe those would work. As far as those remotes working with a Chromebox, I'm not sure. It'd be the Chrome browser that would have to accept the inputs, and I'm not sure on whether or not that's possible.

u/bigdon199 · 1 pointr/htpc

have you looked into air mice like https://www.amazon.com/Aerb-Wireless-Keyboard-Multifunctional-3-Gsensor/dp/B00K768DHY it has a few keys that can be IR and the rest act like a keyboard and the mouse portion can control the cursor like a wii mote or deactivated. I use mine for kodi on my raspberry pi and I have it programmed to turn the tv on/off and volume +/- and change inputs.

u/joeydcamo · 1 pointr/xbmc

I bought a boxee box for about $40 (shipping included in the price) only problem is you need to buy a usb remote. I would also recommend a USB 3.0 32 GB flash drive. All you have to do is root it and put the xbmc files on the USB flash drive.

Boxee Box on eBay

USB Flash Drive I bought

USB Remote

It comes out to be about $80. YOu can definitely find a cheaper remoe but I strongly recommend this one because it best resembles the boxee remote.

If you choose the boxee here is the rooting guide. It is really easy execute.

Tutorial for Root

XBMC Tutorial I recommend you run it off of the USB if you like the Boxee OS and/or have netflix.

EDIT: Forgot to add that it has been running perfectly smooth for me. And the design of the boxee is a bit different and I like the way it sits on the tv stand.

u/droopyoctopus · 1 pointr/AndroidTV

The reason I needed to use a usb dongle is because I am buying an air remote mouse(https://www.amazon.com/Aerb-Wireless-Keyboard-Multifunctional-3-Gsensor/dp/B00K768DHY/) and it has its own bluetooth dongle to work.

That is nice, I am also planning to do the same because I have Buffalo Snes USB controller. I am planning to install retroarch in it :)
So will a USB hub like this suffice?(https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-4-Port-Individual-Switches-HB-UMLS/dp/B00BWF5U0M/)

And also I have one last question. Is it normal to lag on 60fps videos on Youtube? I thought this box is strong enough to handle 4k 60 fps o.o

u/exodius06 · 1 pointr/PleX

Ever tried anything like this? Seems like it wouldn't require any extra components. Just add the driver and go.

u/ProfessorKaos64 · 1 pointr/SteamOS

It depends on the device really. I have this air mouse + keyboard remove, which works over a small receiver. I believe it is wireless, not IR. Minus Hulu, those sites work in the SteamOS browser. However, if you still want an "app" like experience. You can run "web apps" in Chrome's kiosk mode. I have a section of my SteamOS-Tools project for this, call web apps. For that remote, basic functions work fine. I've been trying to add hardware, and encourage folks to do so, under the Valve github wiki

I know a lot of this isn't "native," but it is what it is for now.

Would also suggest to consider connecting it to a TV with a $5-10 wireless mouse, this keyboard - https://www.amazon.com/JETech-Wireless-Keyboard-Windows-Vista/dp/B0173QNVT0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1504212510&sr=8-1&keywords=jetech+keyboard - and maybe this keyboard/mouse remote (I own this, it's awesome) - https://www.amazon.com/Aerb-Wireless-Keyboard-Multifunctional-3-Gsensor/dp/B00K768DHY/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1504212588&sr=1-1&keywords=pc+remote . Bigger screen, maybe a little less intimidating if they're funny like that about technology, and the remote might come more natural to them. Keyboard is only 27cm so less than a ruler, and about 5mm thick (apart the power bar at the top which is maybe 2cm thick) so it and the mouse are really, really easy to tuck away when not in use and take up no room at all even when being used. Mice also work fine either on the arm of the sofa or even the leg of your jeans.

(then go get a 1050 TI, a copy of DOOM, and a wireless gamepad for them for Christmas and record the results for us :D )

u/firsthour · 1 pointr/cordcutters

I have a WDTV Live Plus that I use with SMB and the only time I experience dropped frames or whatever is when my network can't handle the bandwidth. I recently upgraded the weak spot in my network (an old powerline ethernet connection upgraded to the newer faster version) and haven't had any problems since. Try connecting your WDTV Live Plus directly (or as close as possible with just a switch between) to your PC and see if you have problems then.

My eventual upgrade path is either to my Ouya with XBMC installed, or probably maybe the Amazon Fire TV with XBMC/Kodi sideloaded. I also need ethernet because I just don't get the bandwidth I need with my current Wifi setup, but the powerline ethernet makes that simple where I live.

I already have a remote for my Ouya that works great with XBMC (http://www.amazon.com/Aerb-Multifunction-Wireless-Keyboard-3-Gsensor/dp/B00K768DHY/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top) and the Fire TV comes with a remote too (I don't have a Fire TV yet but I do have a Fire TV Stick, but I wouldn't want to use that personally because it's wifi only).

If you ever land on a solution, I would love it if you shared it with me as we're on very similar upgrade timelines!

Being polite and responding to a casual greeting like 'How are you?' is FAR from an invitation for him to start aggressively hitting on you (or soliciting you for prositution), especially when you have already rejected him quite blatantly on many other occasions. Don't be afraid to be more direct with him, firmly tell him in no uncertain terms that you are not and will never be interested in him. Is there any way for you to get out of there and into a different place? If not, maybe you can talk to your landlord about having him removed? Regardless, you should invest in some kind of door lock ASAP- they are fairly easy to install yourself. This could be another good option.

I bought one of these ahead of my first build (I use it currently as an external for a MacBook). It's a nice monitor but I think the stand and housing are kind of cheap seeming, though I ended up liking the burnt orange bezel.

I'm thinking about trying out one of VESA mounts.

BUT, when taking it down use dental floss to pull it off the wall, otherwise it will pull the paint and maybe drywall off with it. Shit if tough AF.

Some people also use a Velcro system so they can remove it if they want but this seemed cleaner and it's just as easy to take off with the tape but you'll need to put a new piece on if you do.

SSDs have no moving parts. Half the time I just drop them in the bottom of the case or shove them in 3/5 or 5/25 bays. I don't care where they go. I'm also a big fan of 2-sided tape. That stuff I linked will hold anything inside a case with just tiny bits of it. I've stuck SSDs and HDDs to it, and I've even mounted fans in odd places with the stuff, just tape triangles over the corners.

u/officer21 · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

They are conservative with their estimates. I have a Corsair 200R, the allowable height is 160mm. I installed a glass window on the inside with mounting tape, so the clearance should be 160mm - thickness of the glass - thickness of the mounting tape. I got a 165mm air cooler, it fits.

u/efx0a · 1 pointr/pcmods

Thanks! At first I thought I would have to bolt the window in, which I didn't like since it doesn't look as clean. I ended up getting double sided mounting tape from Walmart, I believe it was 3M brand. Similar to this - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00004Z4BV/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_1?pf_rd_p=1944687682&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B005SRECEU&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=12EFEPSCVZ0AA4M6HESZ

So after I cut the window out with a dremel, I used rubber grommet edging that I bought at Performance-PCs (which is where I bought most of the modding supplies I used in this project) - http://www.performance-pcs.com/solid-wall-polyethylene-grommet-edging-with-adhesive-black.html to line the edge, then apply the mounting tape and set the window in.

D&D Basics (Getting started)


The Absolute Basics


First you will want to grab either the Basic rules (Free), the Starter Set (Cheap), or the Players handbook, Dungeon Masters Guide, and Probably Monster Manual

Then you need to have at least a few items

  • Dice (Phone apps will work if absolutely necessary, or these)
  • Paper & Pencil (for notes)
  • Character Sheet (In the free PDF or an app)

    The starter set is nice because it does a bunch of the work for you, it has an easy to follow adventure, pre-made characters, Dice, and rules for the DM and players. And at half the cost of just the players handbook AND including an adventure, it is an incredible value.

    Once you finish that then looking at at least a players handbook for the extra races, classes, backgrounds, and other things is a good deal. That should let you run free adventures people have put online.

    The DM's guide will let you get deeper into rules and the right way to call them, break them, and make them.

    The monster manual can be a great tool to make better encounters.

    If you want to run a commercial adventure after the one's included in the starter set, "Tales from the Yawning Portal" includes the Sunless Citidel, considered by many to be an excellent adventure for those new to the game and just recently brought up from 3.5e into 5e

    Common Tools of the Trade


    As you start running more complex adventures you are going to want to have a few tools to keep things moving, either as a player or as a DM.

    As a Player


    The bare essentials every players should have are listed above, but most players agree having a few extras can make the game run really quick.

    Spell Cards


    These cards have all the spells available for specific classes or from specific books on really well organized cards that make it easy to set aside your prepared spells and quickly reference all the core details.

    Cleric, Arcane, Ranger, Druid, Bard, Paladin, Martial Powers and Races, Xanathars Guide to Everything

    Binders & Sheet Protectors


    Keeping everything neat and organized can be a huge time saver and make it much easier for you to find what you need. Binders can be a great way to keep your notes and other materials organized. In addition many sheet protectors easily erase dry erase markers making it easy to keep track of spells and other changes without ruining character sheets with constant erasing.

    As a DM


    DMs have their work cut out for them. But a few simple tools can make the game run smooth and leave everyone having that much more fun.

    Index Cards


    A set of index cards can go a long way to speeding up the game. Players can put details on spells or magic items on them. You can prepare loot for the game ahead of time and hand it out allowing players to look over the gear as the game continues. You can also use them to hide portions of a battle map or commerical map to give the effect of fog of war.

    Game Mats


    A game mat let's you make single maps by drawing on them with dry erase or wet erase markers. Many are made of vinyl and can last a long time. Normally they will have either 1" squares or hex shapes.

    Minitures


    These things can be expensive, but giving your game that 3D upgrade and helping players better manage space in a game can be well worth it. You can use actual miniatures (Like those from Reaper), Create custom ones on Hero's Forge, or even just buy some cheap stand in tokens from Game Mash.

    If you just need a cheap way to keep track of positions army men, bottle caps, colored game pieces, and even legos can all play the role.

    No matter what you use, you can pick up colored rubber bands to mark status conditions or other information.

    Where Can I Play?


    You can find tons of places to play D&D.

  • Get together a gaming group.
  • Find a Guild or club in your area. Meetup.com,
  • Most hobby shops and especially comic book and gaming shops offer games, usually Adventure League. WotC offers a tool to find stores here.
  • /r/lfg can be a great way to find others to play online with.
  • Play by Mail sites like RPoL allow you to play by forum post.

    Also:


    Critical Role - Voice actors playing DnD, Matt Mercer (The DM) is an amazing Dungeon Master and shows how the game should be played.

    Matthew Colville - Amazing videos on being a DM, must watch material for every DM. Even when your opinions differ he gives good reasons and great advice.

    Compendiums


    These let you ciew all the free open rules (SRD & Basic Rules) for D&D 5e at no cost.

    Roll20 Compendium - Has all the open rules for the game, so a good source for monsters, items, spells, etc.

    DnDBeyond - A more official source for the content, plus you can buy all the materials released by WotC to use, and has a great character builder.

    Adventures & Maps


    DMsGuild - Tons of free and paid adventures and other materials. The quality can be varying, but many are free and that can be great.

    /r/dndmaps/ - What more can they say, D&D Maps.

    Mike Schley Makes many of the maps for the D&D Adventures.

u/Fauchard1520 · 1 pointr/DnD

Here's what I did.

First, go make your spell cards at this site. Print settings can get a bit wonky, but the cards look cool and the spell lists are fairly complete:

http://www.thegm.org/perramsSpellbook.php

Next, shell out for a cool binder. This one is nice:

http://www.zazzle.com/spell_binder_1_5-127723018411879163

Third, buy a load of page protectors:

http://www.amazon.com/25-Ultra-Pro-Protectors-Baseball/dp/B000PWZU4E

I chose to sort my spells by level and by alpha order. It's been effective thus far.

Finally, get a bunch of Vis a Vis Wet Erase Markers:

http://www.amazon.com/Expo-Vis-A-Vis-Markers-Colored-16078/dp/B00006IFGW

When you prepare spells, you just put a dot on the plastic over that spell. Erase it when you cast.

The only pain so far has be re-alphabetizing spells when I learn new ones. Still, that's a small price to pay for having a literal spellbook at your table.

Edit: Oops! Just realized what sub I'm looking at. Ummm... instead of Perram's spell cards, you could use this one:

http://www.dnditalia.it/pcc

Or just buy this malarkey: http://www.amazon.com/Arcane-Power-Wizard-Cards-Accessory/dp/0786953551/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1371571218&sr=1-2&keywords=4th+edition+wizard+power+cards

u/rivade · 1 pointr/DnD

A bit off topic, but seeing someone who uses erases/rewrites stuff on their character sheet makes me cringe now after I swapped to the below setup.

Brother, buy yourself some cardstock and some sheet protectors and either wet-erase markers with some spray OR dry-erase markers.

Write everything really nice and neat, only write on the sheet when it's a more permanent use, and everything that can change during a session is written on the sheet protector with the marker. I prefer the wet-erase because I can pack up the character sheet between sessions and nothing gets erased, but that's really personal preference.

u/Flynn_lives · 1 pointr/funny

Nope, she used those wipeable markers...these

u/LordPineapple · 1 pointr/electricians

You can get wet erase markers.

u/WhiteIgloo · 1 pointr/DungeonsAndDragons

I started with a thing of crayola washables from walmart (cost like $2) but found they took too long to "dry" and not smudge. So I upgraded to expo wet erase markers when they were on sale. After a couple of seconds you are able to touch the lines you've drawn which means you can add stuff on the fly easily and keep it looking semi nice.
https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00006IFGW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_DMSFDbMVHWMDX

u/wilk8940 · 1 pointr/DnD

I use Vis-a-vis or Staedtler markers. The most important thing is to clean your mat as soon as you can. Do not leave markers on there over night or they will stain. You can also take some rubbing alcohol to it to make sure you get every last bit off.

u/jackchit · 1 pointr/boardgames

What really helped my new players was printing this simplified map and laminating it. Then get a handful of Expo vis-à-vis colored pens. It lets the bobbies keep track of reasonable eliminations, mark possible paths, and better coordinate without informing Jack between rounds.

I strongly recommend wet-erase; dry erase gets everywhere and doesn't hold up when passing the map around.

u/dvrzero · 1 pointr/gifs

Unless it's a sharpie these markers are wet erase, so a damp paper towel it'll come right off. A sharpie might ruin a white board, I've never had to get it off one before.

u/Medarco · 1 pointr/dndnext

I was raised (almost literally) playing with minis and a battlemat. I helped my dad build a magnetic dungeon board set when I was about 7 years old. I played recently with a relatively new group of my college age friends who were doing theatre of mind, and I was miserable.

A lot of actions specifically denote spacing, which is very difficult to do in theatre of mind. Attacks of opportunity, spell/attack range, etc all get kinda weird when it's just spoken and imagined. I am certain that other people are better at keeping track of it all, and more experienced DMs could make it more interesting.

I know I am personally extremely biased, but about half way through the session we were supposed to storm a castle, and there was no way I was going to try to keep the different passageways straight in my head without a visual representation. I went out to my car and brought in my tackleboxes of minis, battlemat, and vis-a-vis markers. The DM was a little apprehensive at first, but most everyone seemed to agree that the minis and mat were far superior after playing for about 10 minutes with them.

One of the player's made this analogy: [Theatre of Mind] is like a text based RPG, while minis and the battlemat is like playing Skyrim.




ninja edit

I didn't address prices. Minis can be very expensive. If you get the pre painted figures, they are unbelieveably costly. Here is a site that has all sorts of figures. Their search bar is amazing.

Here is a link to a battlemat on amazon. It may look pricey (I don't know your budget) but this mat is worth more than you can imagine.

Here is a link to a pack of markers that should do the trick for drawing any kind of terrain/buildings/caves you like. Just dip a spare rag or paper towel in some water, and the lines come right off.

u/ayeneneyeee · 1 pointr/fountainpens

Oh! If you're interested in Pilot's Blue Black, on Amazon there's a 350mL version in a glass bottle imported from Japan that works out to be great value for money. Here

u/rfpels · 1 pointr/fountainpens
u/exzeroex · 1 pointr/fountainpens

Diamine, tons of colors and are affordable (especially in Europe) many colors are dupes of more expensive inks out there. They likely make ink for other companies that sell ink but don't have ink manufacturing capabilities, like Akkerman. They have a lot of great colors, but their water resistance is generally low.

​

Noodler's would be the ton's of colors and affordable US company but he's a 1 man show so people don't have much faith in him combined with his political views he's one of the more controversial company/people in the fountain pen world. He seems to experiment with inks and ink properties so he has some interesting water resistant colors and UV glowing colors out there.

​

I like water resistant inks so I'm a fan of Pilot Blue and Blue Black, Platinum Blue Black, Platinum Classic Iron Gall series, Platinum Pigment ink series, and Sailor Nano-pigment Seiboku and Souboku.

​

If you're looking for great bang for buck blue ink, I would buy a 350ml Pilot Blue Black bottle for 20 something dollars. But you'll need another bottle to put that into, so either an empty bottle or another bottle of a nicely shaped Pilot Blue Black.

u/pope_formosus · 1 pointr/fountainpens

The Pilot Blue-Black is only 350 mL, not a full liter. If you're willing to wait for slow shipping, it's only $22.

​

If you want a full liter of ink, you can get some Pelikan 4001 from Amazon Germany for only €26.45 plus shipping.

u/SarcasticOptimist · 1 pointr/fountainpens

Zycc Navy Blue if you want mysterious and cheap ink.

Pilot BB for a reliable daily ink. Their 70ml bottles are the most practical and they have 350ml bottles too.

So I use a blank moleskin, but I know a lot of people RAVE about the Leuchtturm 1917 with the dotted grid, so I may upgrade to that soon. Apparently the grid is a life changer.

Edited to add link so you can add it to your wishlist if you want

u/NewiePirate · 1 pointr/bulletjournal
u/d65vid · 1 pointr/notebooks

A5 is my preferred form factor and it seems like there is a definite lacking in that size for good notebooks that aren't lined or blank. I'm currently using some random shitty one I found on clearance at Target that is gridded, which is sort of almost as good as dots or crossfield. Leuchtturm is probably your best bet.

u/CashewGuy · 1 pointr/notebooks

I have no issues with the Moleskine paper, and quite enjoy writing on it. The only product that has some bleed-through is my soft-cover, and even that is negligible.

The Leuchtturm doesn't have a bleed-through problem, but a drying-speed problem. It dries so incredibly slowly that I had to sit for nearly 30 seconds to let some of the ink dry. This isn't a problem the Moleskines have. Writing with the pen turned upside down (finer point) shortens drying time, but is also annoying. I can't write in paragraphs without smudging, a problem I don't have with Moleskine.

These galleries may or may not demonstrate what I'm talking about, I don't have a great place to setup for photos at the moment (plotting for NaNo and some freelance work has my desk full of papers). It's also 3AM and I haven't slept in slightly over 48 hours. I'm adding Amazon links, but only because I have a tough time differentiating, and figure some others might as well. Interestingly, I had to take these pictures on my music table - the notebooks were all laying on "The Ink Spots" album.

Moleskine Classic Large, Ruled A

Moleskine Classic Extra Large, Ruled A

Moleskine Folio A4, Squared A

Leuchtturm1917 Medium, Dots A

I can write in the Leuchtturm (I'll never remember how to spell that) when I hold the pen (Sheaffer Imperial 440 - not my pic) upside down, but I really dislike doing that.

It could be the ink, I use Waterman Intense Black (Encre Noir - so much better that way). I am almost out of my 50mls, so I'll need new ink soon. If anyone wants to recommend a good ink for the Leuchtturm, I'll give it a go.

I will say that I do prefer a rougher texture. I enjoy the sound a rougher paper makes, and I like the feel of it under the pen. If I can't hear or feel the pen, I don't enjoy writing.

I personally find all this talk of "leagues" to be ridiculous. It shouldn't matter how expensive your notebook is. All that matters are these two questions:

  1. Does it cooperate with the pen?
  2. Do you like it?

    For me, Moleskine notebooks are both "Yes." For Leuchtturm, it fails on the first. If it's an ink problem, I'd very likely convert if I found an ink that cooperated.
u/b3k · 1 pointr/Reformed

I'm not really sure what the difference is the single column journaling format looks like how I'd imagine a wide margin Bible, but with lines for writing. Do you want lines?

Depending on what you mean by "extensive note-taking" you could also look at an interleaved journaling Bible, or do what I do and find a Bible that you like and put your notes in a notebook.

u/krokodilmannchen · 1 pointr/ethfinance

Sure! How old is she? I highly recommend she start with a dotted Leuchtturm A5 (https://www.amazon.com/Leuchtturm1917-Medium-Dotted-Hardcover-Notebook/dp/B002TSIMW4) and maybe some pocket notebook like the Moleskine (https://www.amazon.com/Moleskine-Notizhefte-Kartoneinband-3-er-Set-packpapierbraun/dp/8883704940/) ones - great for field notes! I use this setup. Also, get her some pencils and stuff to draw! Just the other day I put this in my small notebook: https://i.imgur.com/8BXh2BQ.jpg. It's about having fun!

I'd love to talk to her about it!

u/thefaderist · 1 pointr/bulletjournal

I currently use a gridded Moleskine, which has been great so far.

However, I just received a dot grid Confidant from Baron Fig for the coming year and it seems an awful lot like it might permanently replace my Moleskine. Thicker paper, shorter and wider. No pocket or elastic strap, but goddamn it's simple and gorgeous.

The Leuchtturm 1917 is also popular. If I decide I like my Moleskine better than my Confidant, this is probably what I'll switch to. I get the impression that it's quite similar to a Moleskine, but maybe built a bit better, heavier with the pages, and also is available in dot grid.

u/Dog-head · 1 pointr/fountainpens

Sure.

Rhodia pads: Most people will mention these. Extremely smooth, very fountain pen friendly. So smooth, however, that inks like Noodler's Black that are formulated for crappy paper take forever to dry on it. They also come in books. Most people get used to the dots and never go back.

Clairefontaine: I'm not familiar but people mention them a lot and they seem like a very economical choice. I think they're more popular in Europe as school notebooks.

Midori: The Japanese don't mess around when it comes to writing. While basically naked compared to Leuchtturm or Moleskine, these have buttery smooth paper that while thin, feels fantastic to write on and doesn't bleed. There's a coveted cotton version (important because cotton is archival and good for watercolor) but I've never been able to track one down. It doesn't help that the online american outlets are poorly translated and usually don't know what they're packing since they look the same. See also: Apica

Leuchtturm 1917: A great journal or idea book, basically a Moleskine with better paper and perks. I used this as a daily journal. The pages are thin enough that you get ghosting especially with darker black inks but I write on both sides anyway.

If you're looking for a sketchbook I've spent a little too much time researching them and I think Stillman & Birn are really the one and only choice. Not only are they cheap by a price/sheet ratio but the quality is outstanding - extremely durable binding that tolerates being turned inside-out, thick paper with a variety of finishes so you can make a decision of what suits your medium. Epsilon or Gamma are the way to go for pure line ink work, though I've gotten away with light washes.

Hope this helps, enjoy your pen.

I always travel with a notebook. It's very nice too. Leuchtturm. I also travel with a fountain pen. However I use those for work. I bullet journal for my work stuff. For other stuff I have a rain proof memo pad and a fisher space pen (the little bullet one). That's been fine for just jotting down notes and stuff. That notebook has held up to a lot of abuse though. I only go through maybe one a year, but they are a pain to replace overseas (I wasn't able to), just FYI.

There's no "standard" height for that. Your tower just needs to be high enough for your power supply fan on the bottom to suck up air into it. You case has little feet that put it just high enough. What I've seen most people do is find a little piece of wood that is just wide enough, or maybe a little wider than their tower, for it to sit on. Me personally, I've got a stand with wheels on it that I can't recommend enough.

Here it is: http://www.amazon.com/Syba-SY-ACC65029-Castors-Plastic-Adjustable/dp/B003BYRO7O/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1396236179&sr=1-1&keywords=pc+stand

It's got 5 wheels on it, and is a bit of a pain to smoothly roll around, but if you don't move your PC for anything other than dusting it out every so often (I do it every 2-3 weeks), it's MORE than worth it to purchase. The stand will keep your tower somewhere between 3-4.5 inches off the floor. Really hope this helps.

u/Dredge6 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

Think about that for a second.

Your PSU pulls air from the bottom, but it sits on the floor.

Now I'm just a big nut for air flow and cooling efficiency, but if you care about it as much as I do get this

When I got mine I just ripped the wheels out and put it under my tower. It gives about an inch of clearance from the ground which just makes me feel better about airflow.

u/how_does_i_reddit · 1 pointr/buildapc

It really shouldn't fall over. Everybody I know has it normally and I have never heard of putting it on its side, but I imagine it would raise temps a bit. If you put it on the dresser you should have less issues with dust which will keep temps lower and you won't have to clean it as often. This also goes with putting it on top of the desk. If the first two aren't options then just put it under the desk but try to not have it directly on the ground. Something like this could help with that and make it easy to move around. I wish I had one of those haha I might just have to order one now that I think about it.

u/Scoutdad · 1 pointr/oculus

I just moved one of my kid's PC's to a carpeted floor to make room for a second monitor on his desk. I used one of these stands for $11 to keep it up a bit as the case is a big Fractal Design R5 and has a fan and filters on the bottom. Been working well but still need to be cautious rolling it as it is a big case. If your case does not have bottom airflow it is probably not necessary, but does help with accessing the back panel.

If you have the S be very careful with those controllers as many report they are not as durable as the controllers from the CV1. Some find a small mat in the center of their playspace helps keep them from venturing to far.

Pretty much exactly my setup, but the Volcano on the left next to the window. Very nice, but you need to get a computer stand and put that shit on the floor. Too much desk space taken up, but you don't want it to sit directly on the floor either. It's a tricky situation. Then you need a second monitor and a dual monitor stand to be a real badass. Desk space is essential.

u/ImHellaHungry · 1 pointr/MechanicalKeyboards

after about a couple months or so of use you can see the surface layer peeling on the bottom left of the pic, so if you want something you can use a long, long time probably not for you, but they're relatively cheap so getting one every 4 months or so wouldn't dig into the wallet too bad. I just flip it to the other side when I use it, I reoriented just for the pic.

performance-wise, it's awesome, doesn't make my hands sweaty, stay still really well, elevates the wrists to a good height; typing without it is uncomfortable now

If you're seeking a cheap wrist rest, I suggest a Grifiti wrist rest. If you're in no hurry you could try buying a larger one + mouse rest in Massdrop's current group buy, or wait for the mini wrist rest to come around again.

What you can do is limit your dependence on them. Cancel TV, get Netflix. Buy your own DOCSIS3 modem, return that rental garbage. Cancel phone, get a your own number and a VoIP bridge.

u/nathanmac · 1 pointr/AndroidQuestions

I have a ting account with 5 lines for people in my family that want a smartphone but don't use it enough to justify a major carrier sized bill. I make sure that everyone's number is ported to google voice so that all txt messages don't cost extra. I have not found a smooth way to switch between making call over wifi and cellular. Additionally any voip app I've used has always been a major battery suck since they depend on the wifi always being on.

One potential solution you may be interested in is to purchase an obitalk voip adapter.

http://www.amazon.com/OBi100-Telephone-Adapter-Service-Bridge/dp/B004LO098O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1372562300&sr=8-1&keywords=obi100

This would allow a corded phone to make and receive calls on the same google voice number the android phone uses. There wouldn't ever be voice charges for call made from the obi device as long as google keeps call to the US free.

u/DaRam4U · 1 pointr/Frugal

Sign up for a Google Voice account, Pay $20 to have the # ported to Google Voice, Ask her to get one of these for $40. Once setup, She can use it as her land line anywhere she goes (with an internet connection).

Not so sure about flipping the # back to a cell # when she gets back though.

u/daydream2014 · 1 pointr/Frugal

I picked up an Obi for about $40. You'll need a fast/reliable internet for the Obi to work. Basically you'll transfer/port over your home phone number to Ring.To (a free VOIP service). Then subscribe to Anveo E911 service for about $13 year. Once the porting of your home number is complete (usually takes 5-10 business days) you'll have a VOIP land line for $13/year plus the initial cost of the Obi. There were a couple hiccups in the beginning but it's all been sorted now. With Ring.To it's free local and long distance calls but no international calls (I use my cellphone plan to make international calls).

http://www.amazon.com/OBi100-Telephone-Adapter-Service-Bridge/dp/B004LO098O

The way I cut my cable bill from $120/month to $46/month was by purchasing an Obi for home phone, cut TV and use OTA antenna channels combined with a Roku (subscribed to netflix/hulu plus/amazon/HboGo etc) and purchased my own cable modem instead of paying the monthly fee.

u/Ligno · 1 pointr/Frugal

If you have a spare iPhone then all you need is a WiFi connection and Hangouts to use it with Google Voice as a "landline." Hangouts is clunky for dialing out, but answering is pretty smooth. You can place the phone in Airplane mode and then enable WiFi, no need for cell service on the iPhone.

Alternatively, assuming you have a landline handset that you already like and are comfortable with is to get a Obi100 ATA ($38 on Amazon) and a Callcentric account (If you select that you are outside the US and dont care about 911, it is free incoming forever with no montly fees). Dialing out is not possible with this setup (unless you initiate things through Google Voice on the website or the GV App on your iPhone) unless you pay money.

The Obi can connect directly to your GV account to make outgoing calls, but there are a few problems with how it does that. The XMPP interface was supposed to be shutoff by Google earlier this year, but that has not happened. In addition, if you have gmail open, the phone doesn't ring because the calls are redirected there. Therefore it is advisable to have the SIP account to receive the calls with and turn off Gmail for receiving calls in Google Voice(This may also kill Hangouts, so you need to choose what is important to you).

There were some issues with setup at first, something about too many signals at once but I changed some settings and adjusted my QoS so that VOIP was a priority and it worked fine. I wasn't about to pay $10 more a month for a mobile unit, so I was willing to walk away (previous owner had it installed before we bought the house) if my setup wasn't functioning.

u/soulscore · 1 pointr/gadgets
u/DitchWitch13 · 1 pointr/cordcutters

Buy some sort of separate VOIP device and attach it to your internet if you're not attached to your phone number. I just had the same issue, cable modems with phone ports are crazy expensive, but I was looking to cut back from Time Warner. I bought an Obi100 and set it up with Google Voice, but may look into a different provider if Google makes it not free, depending on the rates they charge. Obi100 on Amazon. Otherwise, you'll need to pick up a modem that has telephony ports on it like this one - the key is to look for the word telephony and see if it mentions VOIP and has phone slots on the back: DOCSIS 3.0 modem with telephony. Depending on your internet speed you could maybe buy a DOCSIS 2 modem, but the minor savings won't buy you much future forward time. I think any of the Motorolla surfboard modems are valid with TWC's service, truth be told anything should work but they do have some compatibility lists somewhere. All you have to do is call them and give them the MAC address and it's ready to go.

+1 for this.

Voice quality is awesome, and everyone who calls can't tell that it is VoIP.

I have the Obi100 which only cost me $30. I paid another $12 for 911 services since Google Voice doesn't do that.

u/shoeman22 · 1 pointr/Android

Have you considered porting your number to Google Voice and then just forwarding to whatever random number you get from T-mobile?

That's what I did (left Sprint for T-mobile on straight talk). I like it because it means YOU always have control of your number and you're not at the mercy of the cell provider.

And of course you get to use Google Voice which is awesome. Text from your desktop, read / listen to your messages, block spam calls / texts, and my new favorite feature I just found: present a "this number is no longer in service" message to folks you don't want to hear from again!

Plus, if you pick up an obi100 and have an old cordless phone lying around, you get a free home phone w/ unlimited minutes (through 2012 at least) and it uses your same google voice number so you can pick up calls on either your cell or your home phone.

Seriously awesome stuff! And on the cancellation, it "just worked" for Sprint (account showed no service right after port completed which took about a day). You WILL get charged an ETF if you are in contract though, so be aware of that.

following a guide I found on here, I got rid of ATT for google voice and verizon pay as you go. I got an OBi100 from Amazon, and a cheap VTech Phone for home. This gave me unlimited talk when I was at home. This substantially reduced the amount of minutes I needed.

Secondly, I got rid of my expensive family plan from ATT, and went for the 100 minutes, unlimited data/text plan from Verizon. I was paying $135 a month from ATT (for two iPhones) and am now paying $65 a month, for the same two phones. I have a lot less minutes, but I just use my home phone and don't really talk on the phone when I'm out and about. This saves me $70 a month, or $840 a year.

Honestly instead of a magicjack I would go with an Obihai...

I picked up the obi100 from amazon for $35 (http://www.amazon.com/OBi100-Telephone-Adapter-Service-Bridge/dp/B004LO098O/ref=sr_1_cc_2?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1321670753&sr=1-2-catcorr) no referral link btw

It's awesome... first it's completely compatible with google voice.. so I can set google voice as service provider 1 (which enables free incoming and outgoing calls using google voice.. using a regular phone handset) then I used VOIP.MS for provider 2 (The device supports 2 providers).. threw $25 on the account and activated e911... programmed the obi100 to route 911 calls through provider 2 and everything else through provider 1... also picked up a toll free DID (in dial) number (just in case I ever have to use a payphone.. can use attendant to place outgoing calls on my voip through a 1-800.. and also for people to call me toll free) ....

So now.. for a total investment of $60, I have completely free phone service (until google ever changes it.. and even then I can use voip.ms for crazy cheap prices, less than 1c a minute).. fully functional 911 service going to my address, a toll free inbound number I can receive calls on or call to make outgoing calls from whatever supports toll-free calling...

One of the best investments i've made in a long time, you should check it out.. I have no idea how they got the device to allow outgoing calls using google voice (uses the gmail interface somehow.. but doesn't require your computer to even be on..)

Awesome piece of tech, the obi110 has an extra port to be connected to the POTS system as well, if you wanted to integrate that into it.. but that's not even remotely required.
