    What's the best place in the US to live on a remote freelance income of 75-100k?

    Covid has taught me an interesting lesson: how to live with no commute, few local in-person social contacts, and no real connection whatsoever to my current geography or timezone. Hence... Where's the best bang for the buck in America for low cost of living (especially house prices)...

    Found an interesting piece of tech on Amazon: Bluetooth receiver cable replacement for AKG

    Bluetooth on minixlr that plugs straight into AKG headphones in place of the removable cable Don't know yet how long the charge lasts, but the concept is pretty neat. Seems to sound pretty good, volume range ~80 - 100% is fairly useable (though it cannot get painfully loud on K240), pairs up...

    Keyboard shortcuts on productivity software are kicking my left hand's ass. I can barely move my pinky it's so sore from mashing Ctrl all day. Is there a good wired mouse with 4-5 BIG additional customizable buttons? I need "submit", "copy", "paste", and maybe backspace or delete. If one of...

    Bought a $200 Chinese strat (EART)

    First impression: surprisingly nice Frets seem level, tape measure says they're in the right places, factory setup not shreddy low but playable and no buzz on any fret. Even seems close to in tune out of the box. First gripe: why are the tuners grimey?

    I *thought* I heard you could use a Scarlett Solo as a standalone guitar headphone amp (no PC)

    I believe I read, here or on some other forum, that you could run a Focusrite Scarlett Solo as a standalone guitar headphone amp (preferably with an ampsim-in-a-box pedal)... tried hooking it up to my 2amp USB-C phone charger, no dice. The backlight rings on the pots flashed once and nothing...

    Google conspires with certain companies to allow them to bypass spam filters?

    Every day, and I mean, I flag spam from LinkedIn as "spam" in Gmail. And the next day, it still arrives in my inbox. Similar stuff happens with a few others like Quora, but those data mining bastards at least let off until you accidentally click into a search result from them...

    I thought my Joyo Tubescreamer clone was broken, BUT... turns out the battery died. Why though?

    It was the deadest 9V i've ever seen. 0.00 volts on the tester. Battery defect? Or did it drain out somehow? I left it plugged into an amp but turned OFF for a few months. Pretty sure it was a fresh new battery, never used. Are you supposed to unplug it fully when not using or something??? Thx

    What's a fast and convenient program for slicing and splicing a recording into a bunch of files?

    It's for work not music, but I figured you guys might know. I need to record pages and pages of voice and then split it up into sequentially named and numbered files containing one sentence each. And here's the kicker, then splice in the same thing in a second language. Manually creating...
