Helmet is made so far maybe I should elevate the side sensors like the drawing feel like I should add more detail.

Post things you've learnt recently!

I just learned China throws people in jail for drawing 3D hentai and forces them to confess an apology.



This isn't a really a hobby and there are already threads on other boards for random factoids.

I am pretty sure these are all open source but I didnt double check any of them.


forgot osmand and vlc but kde connect is cross platform i use it to connect to windows machines as well


kde connect looks very interesting


It has some killer features. I like to use my phone as a track pad when I'm just reading so I can step a few feet away from the computer for my eyes

What are some hobbies that don't involve consuming anything? You purchase a 1 time item and very rarely if ever have to replace it. Learning yo-yo tricks would be a consumptionless hobby in this case. There are obviously thinks like whistling or playing the spoons too. The idea is it has to make as little foot print as possible while being something you can develop and grow at. Drawing wouldn't count because you need paper.

If you do end up working stone I highly recommend taking ventilation and breathing protection seriously.
The dust from that stuff fucks your lungs. It really doesn't take a lot to cause issues.


Would a mask be enough?


Depends on the mask and the general setup.

Like if you are cutting/grinding stuff wet then there would be very little dust. It which case a mask might not even be needed.

But if you were powdering silica in a hermetically sealed room with not even the faintest of air flow, while wearing a ski mask, bro you gonna die.


depends heavily on the particle size

if you are chiseling and carving stone by hand outside you dont need anything crazy

if you are sawing, grinding, cutting, etc and producing dust, then you need an air filter and dust collection and a mask tbh

for wood if you work by hand, you can cut, saw, drill, chisel, etc and you dont need a mask. the moment you use powered tools though you need dust collection and air filtering and sometimes a mask

i built a shelf outside today and the dust was so bad i had to walk away after every cut and wait for it to settle. this was with a breeze too


everytime you dont consume, you're not consuming idiot

Anyone else just really like the feeling and use of a Mechanical Keyboard? Recently picked one up from my local Walmart for $70. Old Razer 2019 BlackWidow and it feels nice. Wondering if anyone else likes them too.
8 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


We ALLL fuckin' know the greatest mechanical keyboard of all time was an IBM Model M keyboard. It was made out of mahogany wood, finished with real ivy keys, and featured 100% silk liners for the hand rests.

Our family of modest earners saved up for years to afford one of these key boards but after working so long we finally did it. Every day its become something of a ritual for us to gather around the dining room table to appreciate the craftsmanship that went into the keyboard. An optional attachment goes over the keyboard to obscure visibility of the parts which turns the keyboard into a fingerbox. The wiz family can be entertained for hours trying to guess exactly which parts they are touching inside the 'fingerbox.' It's made many boring days quite exciting and I would recommend this to other IBM M keyboard owners.


There are a switches that are around the same noise level as membrain keyboards.

That said I love the clicky ones, so I can understand someone not really liking them, especially if they love silence.

Surprisingly it actually is.
Especially when you get into custom key and switch combinations and building and modifying keyboards.
There are also people who collect them.
For me it isn't quite to the level of a hobby, but I do like them quite a bit and would be happy to talk about them for hours.


I saw a keyboard the other day that looked like a type writer. Do you think something like that would be cool to own?


It wouldn't be to my personal taste.
Then again I don't exactly have fond memories of typewriters.
They are clunky cumbersom devices that make revision and word processing so difficult that it is sometimes better to just retype a whole page then try to fix a relatively small error.

I hated learning to type on them as a child.
So I have no fondness for typewriters and would not like to own something that reminds me of them.


finally got my split ergo mechanical and i can totally see how this is an addiction. im gonna buy the glove80 or make a dactyl manuform next, 4x6 just isnt enough and im already using home row mods and layers but its just not enough for certain rarely used charactrers like tilde grave and plus minus. but its really nice and i like being able to type with my arms wide apart, makes my dark computer room feel like a spaceship piloting room

Recently I've become fascinated with tessellation and spent the past couple of weeks collecting pictures of mosaics from around the world. Eventually just looking at them was not enough and I want to go deeper, understand the geometric shapes and its secrets better. Not even sure why but periodic tiling feels like a brain massage to me, like I'm about to fall out of bottom of how I usually perceive the world around me. So I picked up the book Geometry by Cambridge University Press. Feel free to give a hollow laugh: I honestly thought I could just skip the math part of geometry (yes I'm an idiot) and appreciate its resulting surfaces. While you can do that, if you want to appretiate geometry even at a surface level, you need to know the bare minimum of maths. The book suggested a good grasp on the basics of linear algebra and algebraic structure. I thought 'OK, I'll read the wiki entries as a lazy primer' and quickly realized I forgot even the basics of mathematical symbols. I guess it's true after all, if you don't use it you lose it.

Long story short, I'm currently going through Pure Mathematics for Beginners. The good part of being dumb is when you learn a single thing it feels like a whole new world just opened up and it feels really good.

So yeah, maths thread.

Usually, most of the questions aren't 'unique'; if there are 40 questions, most of them are just differently stated versions of the same question.

If you believe you understand the subject matter but still struggle with exercises, try looking up the answer to one of the questions you are having trouble with and attempt to solve similar questions on your own.


dont do them then, or just do a few.
Modern mathematics education is a disgrace because nobody wants to learn with dozens of tedious exercises. I hope you actually have good learning material


doing the problems is how you develop maths intuition tho?


I'm the person who started this thread. Since someone bumped it I might as well say I kept going until reaching differential calculus. I filled about 2 notebooks with exercises. After that, about a month ago, I stopped with math focused books and picked up a textbook on electronics. It's amazing how much math helps in understanding things like magnetic fields and just electricity in general. I could even predict some of the behaviors on the theoretical part of the text. I really feel I'm making good progress, can't wait until I reach the meat of the thing and start reading schematics and study electronic components.

>I mean if you took a philosophy 101 class in the Anglo world, this could very well be your set of textbooks
and what would be the non anglo one? and also the right one? can you give me a list on where to start philosophy, maybe like you said, history of philosophy?


well Anglo-American philosophy is dominated by Analytical philosophy, which thinks many traditional problems can be resolved with language, logic and semantics. That philosophy problems are not in the world, but in language.

Continental Philosophy is more into metaphysics and the being of the world.

If starting from square 1, I think Will Durant and Bertrand Russell's history of philosophies are well-written although a bit dated and biased towards their personal focuses. The 1st towards Pragmatism, the 2nd towards Positivism.

I know a lot of people would tell you to go straight to primary texts, and read the philosophers themselves. But when I was a beginner I found secondary histories and commentary much more useful.

I also found The Teaching Company lectures useful, it might be at your library.

Like I really liked Sugrue's Stoicism lecture. I think his whole course is on his channel now, so thats a good place to start as well.


I think what appears ugly to you will appear beautiful to those same (social?) engineers that produce the mathematicians or collectively produce the theories. It is perhaps more selfish to desire to uncover something all on your own.

It seems a bit tragic to my human mind to see so many people suffer in the process of reorganising themselves spiritually only to die shortly after completion, if they even ever achieve it.

That type of person is you clearly! The same way that all the best hackers are found in the wild, living in peculiar conditions away from education let alone top institutions.

I think that is a neat summary of the human condition. I suppose you don’t get that answer terribly often because people usually prefer to stick to intuitive and immediately evident frameworks.

What I find most interesting with Schoppenhauer’s worldview is that while we “possess” a will, it’s more accurate to say that our will possesses us. Consider us as a machine, or if you are familiar, a neural network. The will is the incentive and what we identify with as “I” is the conscious process of identifying the best way to achieve the desires of the will. It is very akin to slavery, slavery to oneself. Perhaps worse than any other kind of slavery. And to deny the will is to die. Choose slavery or death.


yeah schop was a big fan of hinduism, thou art that. so the will is the universe, and you are the will.

Schop's feelings on the Will seem to me mixed. Like he's not an entire pessimist anti-natalist, anti-life who just completely he hates the Will. He appreciates its volcanic power. And thinks rationality and anything we throw in the Will's way is futile. He thinks art and music are the purest expression of the Will and he doesn't think they are evil.

rationally it would be best to overcome the will, and he sees that as through asceticism not suicide. although his claim that suicide asserts the will, because we hate a bad life, but we dont hate life itself. can be questioned.

so asceticism is rational but rare.

he actually praises poverty as "involuntary trappists", men who have to live like poor monks, even though they didnt choose it. and he sees that as good in its way. easier than recruiting voluntary monks.

"involuntary traps" is like Schop using an early version of the term involcel.


Most of us here who are atheists became so because the world is evil. And this is what Hume had to say on that-

Any other wizards into combat sports?
I have done Krav Maga (2 years); it was ok but I can see why people say it’s overrated. Did some BJJ at an MMA gym but it was expensive as fuck. Boxing was the best so far; nothing has tested my fitness, strength, timing and precision like boxing. Class was always all male.

Really want to try Muay Thai. What other fighting styles are wizards into?

I would assume it depends on so many factors. If you are being chased by a strong but big fat fuck then probably running is the best option.
Sometimes people will attack you if you bruised their ego or embarrassed them in some way so running away will make them feel like a big man ‘Yeah you run away bitch’ and they will leave it.
Maybe running to get help or past a door would be effective.

When it comes to multiple attackers I really don’t see what an average person can do except run. If you are an absolute beast at striking, like pro level, then I could see someone knocking multiple people out. But for an ordinary person with a hobby? No. Running is all you have.


anyone remember the pinkman's videos about martial arts fruads?


no, that's an oversimplification


Yeah, they were pretty good.


I watched a similar video the other night. Some of these fake martial arts "masters" even tricked their pupils into giving them their wives for sex to heal and better their relationships.

Hello, /hob/. I like military. I also like air defence. Specifically, MANPADS. Today I will tell you about a russian MANPADS 9K38 "Igla", also known as SA-18 "Grouse" by NATO classification. I will teach you the basics of its construction, working principles, how to operate it and how to not die immediately after firing it at an incoming SU-24. Stay tuned, wizards.

A Luftfaust anti-air "firestorm" launcher and ammo ca be manufactured with a basic 3D printer, some common tools, off-the-shelf chemicals, standard hardware store fittings, and a carbon fiber winding jig (cheap).

Best way to shoot down a plane is another plane. Otherwise use AAA or SAM; beware SEAD/DEAD planes though.
