I made the switch to using my Steam Controller's gyro (always on, no activate/deactivate button, or "on press" ) for my in game camera a few weeks ago and it's been pretty wild. The amount of extra vision I have is insane. If I'm coming up on the ball, I can bring my camera high to see what my opponent is up to. If they've given me space, I can make it lower and focus on ball control. Depending which side of my care the ball is on, I can err on that side with the camera to both see around the ball, and get a better view of where it's sitting on my car. I can make quick glances even when my right thumb is occupied. Sometimes, it also just looks really cool. (Very "cinematic" or something.) [Here's a quick clip!](https://i.imgur.com/VjUzIEw.mp4) It was super fun even from the get go, though it was also, I admit, TOTALLY disorienting. At first, I had a hard time telling whether I was in ball-cam or car-cam, for example, and switching between the two is weird because, if you're holding "left" to see the ball, and then switch to ball cam, you'll be looking way left of the ball. (I'm still not great at returning my controller to its neutral position when switching cams, but it's coming along!) Has anyone else experimented with this? Honestly, I think it would be INSANE if this made it into the meta. Pros would have so much more awareness, casters could do some really cool camera work in real time, and you'd have that much control over making shots *look cool*. (I see you, freestylers!) ________ PS. I uploaded a short gameplay video to YouTube, but the mods will remove your post if it "could result in you gaining subscribers/followers/audience retention/ad revenue/etc." and you haven't "contributed enough" to the subreddit in recent months. (A ["10:1 ratio of contribution to content minimum"](https://www.reddit.com/r/RocketLeague/wiki/rules).) Personally, I think that this is a ***terrible*** decision that rewards people who have no qualms about working around the rule (having friends post their stuff, making a bunch of just-high-enough-effort bullshit comments to be allowed to spam the subreddit, etc) while punishing those who just want to share their content with the community but will follow its rules. (Not to mention that encouraging a TON of streamers/content creators to make comments/posts that are just-high-enough-effort-to-count-towards-that-rule will almost certainly reduce the quality of discourse on this subreddit, not increase it.) So... if you think that that rule is stupid, feel free to message the mods about it. I guess I could make a meta post about it if that would be more appropriate... I only mention it here because I can imagine someone in the comments asking "Well where's the gameplay ya big dummyhead??"

[CashFusion](https://cashfusion.org/) brings exceptional levels of privacy to Bitcoin Cash, comparable to (or maybe even superior to) other privacy coins. It's already been used to fuse [137,991 BCH](https://stats.cash/#/fusion), and has reduced the size of the UTXO set by 16,131 outputs. Make sure to spin up Electron Cash 4.1.0 today and get that liquidity flowing! (The more people using CashFusion at once, the more Fusions happen, and the larger your "anonymity set".) If you had the pre-official-release 4.1.0, or the "release candidate" (with "rc" in the file name), you can update to the official 4.1.0 release for the latest version. New to CashFusion? No problem, getting set up is EASY. Just [download the Electron Cash desktop wallet](https://electroncash.org/). It's got CashFusion built in! Set up your wallet (and be sure to write down your recovery phrase on a physical piece of paper, especially if you are going to hold significant amounts of coin in the wallet), then activate CashFusion by clicking the icon in the lower right: http://cashfusion.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/logo.jpg Once it's activated, your wallet will start "fusing" your the Bitcoin Cash it contains. Fusions happen over time as their own, separate transactions, and only cost you the network transactions fees (less than a penny). Each fusion transaction will include *some* of your coins\*, so it will take multiple fusion transactions before all the coins in your wallet to be fused. (In the View menu, toggle the coins tab to see all of the coins in your wallet. In the "Label" field, fused coins will show CashFusion info.) Currently, Electron Cash keeps fusing your coins indefinitely. While it is on the roadmap to give you the option to stop fusing after some number of fusions per coin, there's no downside to leaving it to fuse continuously besides paying the transaction fees. (And every fusion gives you that much more privacy, while you are helping to provide "liquidity" for other fusers.) Also, EC does not yet yet prevent you from spending unfused coins, nor does it prefer fused coins when spending, so it's probably best to leave it fusing and keep your whole wallet fused, and/or pick your coins manually from the Coins tab. (If you want that functionality and/or you're not comfortable picking coins to spend from the Coins tab, you can always switch back to CashShuffle for now in the Optional Features window, accessible from the Tools menu.) Here's the [CashFusion Telegram group](https://t.me/cashfusion) where you are welcome to ask questions. (Just remember to be courteous!) Happy Fusing!! <3 \*"Coins" are kind of a confusing concept when it comes to Bitcoin, but you can think of them like discrete "bills" (or... "coins") in your wallet, but instead of coming in only certain sizes like $1, $5, $10, $20, etc, they can be any amount sent to you in a previous transaction, like 0.618 BCH, 0.000001 BCH, or 123.45679 BCH. (They can also be combined and split up. That happens in most transactions!)

https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/i2dl4g/is_there_going_to_be_a_split/

This question is (understandably) asked all the time by people coming to the BCHN telegram for clarity on what has become a pretty unclear situation. It's not an easy question to answer, though, so I wanted to make this post that people could refer to. Here's my take on answering that question: It's **impossible** to know **100% for sure** if there will be a split, because it's impossible to know for sure *how all the relevant parties will behave*. For there to be a split, two node implementations need to irreconcilably disagree on a consensus-related issue, both need to release code with those conflicting consensus rules, and then miners need to also be split enough on the issue for both chains to have enough hashpower to be viable. The narrative that there is ALMOST DEFINITELY going to be a split seems to have been dumped on us out of nowhere a month or so ago, along with what I consider to be increasingly unreasonable behavior from Bitcoin ABC. The tin foil hat in my heart finds that suspicious. (And between the IFP and recent Grasberg proposal, it almost seems like ABC is doing it's best to propose things that make a split as likely as possible.) This political baggage doesn't really matter though, in the grand scheme of things. What matters is that BCHN is, as far as I can tell, just trying to be a *reasonable and professional node implementation for Bitcoin Cash*. If sticking to those principals leads to a divergence from ABC on a consensus related issue, whatever issue that actually would end up being, then that's how it will be. And it wouldn't be the case that "BCHN split the chain", nor would it be the case that "ABC split the chain". It would just be the case that two groups released node implementations with different consensus rules from each other. (And then, if a non-negligible amount of hashpower mines using both clients, then there would indeed be a chain split caused by that situation.) Keeping BCH unified is obviously a HUGE priority for BCHN. Their initial release of what was effectively a non-IFP version of Bitcoin ABC was even designed so that, if the IFP activated with a majority of the hashpower, miners mining with BCHN would follow that longer chain, instead of rejecting IFP blocks as "invalid" or anything like that. This is in stark contrast to narrative I've seen flooding this sub recently with [claims that BCHN tried to split the chain this past upgrade, and are trying to split the chain again this November](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3noprJRCOro). So please take the time to consider which sides of these inevitable disagreements are being reasonable, and which are not, make sure to fact check and ask for sources for any claims you see being made that you can't verify or debunk on your own, and remember that, while chain splits are messy unfortunate things (at least in the short term), **if** there's an irreconcilable disagreement, it's **definitely** better for those parties to go their separate ways. **I hope that that doesn't have to happen anytime soon for BCH.**

https://www.reddit.com/r/PleX/comments/i1we4r/standardbest_way_to_backup_to_second_nonboot/

Hi all! After a little searching, I did see lots of posts about making backups but am not sure about my situation. Sorry if this is a duplicate, and please feel free to just link me to the reading material if this has been covered elsewhere. I have Ubuntu 18.04 on a 240GB SSD running Plex, and have gone through the process of getting the permissions set up so that Plex can see the media on my 3TB internal hard drive. I got a second 3TB hard drive to use as a backup. I realize having one off-site also would be ideal but, for now, being at least a little bit protected against hard drive failure is good enough for me. So my questions are: 1. What's the best way to go about backing up the original 3TB hard drive to the second one, either regularly, or automatically whenever changes are made? (I am generally aware of Raid 1, but don't imagine I can set that up since the one drive is already in use?) 2. What's the best way to backup the rest of the Plex related data (metadata and listens and stuff on the SSD) in my situation? Would it be to run a separate backup of that stuff to the original hard drive, and then just let it then sync that with the second hard drive? Is that stupid? xD Maybe there's an obvious option I haven't come across? Thanks very much for any help. At least to show I value people's time and effort, I'd be happy to tip a few dollars of Bitcoin Cash to anyone who can help me out here. Thanks again!

https://www.reddit.com/r/SteamController/comments/huz9tn/compilation_of_likely_longtermusewearandtear/

Hi all. My Steam Controller has held up relatively well over the years I've been using it, but have recently confirmed for sure that my A button is "going bad" (or something). For a month or two it seemed maybe a little finicky, and then it suddenly became mostly unresponsive (having to click A a bunch of times to get it to happy), then completely unresponsive, and then back to working mostly ok, but not really playable for a competitive game (like Rocket League, not that I play at any competitive level =P). I haven't taken mine apart to look, but it may be that the membrane has given way: https://www.reddit.com/r/SteamController/comments/geythz/membrane_under_the_a_button_broke_so_it_wont_pop/ Though there weren't many posts I found about the A button specifically, seems like there are other people here asking for repair help, and maintenance help. I'm wondering, has any of the information about repairs (and ideally also maintenance to prevent the most common issues) been compiled anywhere yet? Is this something the wiki should include, maybe? (I didn't see anything there, or in the sidebar here, but my apologies if it's there and I missed it.) And also, of course, I'm curious if anyone has any advice on my A button issue. Is taking apart the controller a good idea in the first place? How likely am I to learn something useful, and how likely am I to muck something up? =P Thanks for any help!

https://www.reddit.com/r/linuxquestions/comments/hq7gst/ripperx_cd_ripping_software_stuck_at_contacting/

I'm hoping to rip my CD collection and get it all added to my Plex server, ideally in mp3 format at 320 kbps. RipperX seemed like a good option on Ubuntu 18.04. (I didn't see any dedicated forums for the software, but please feel free to point me somewhere else if I might have better luck there.) Here's the situation: When I first installed the program, the default CDDB settings gave me an error along the lines of "Could not connect to CDDB server" immediately (when trying to use that feature). With the settings changed to those found on [this page](https://mb.videolan.org/doc/FreeDB_Gateway) the bottom of the screen says "Contacting CDDB server..." for a few minutes before giving me the could not connect error. Anyone know what could be going wrong here? Or maybe there's a much easier way to go about ripping CDs and getting their basic meta data attached on Ubuntu 18.04? I actually plan to run everything through MusicBrainz Picard anyway, but I definitely want it pre-labeled so that individual albums get put in their own folders, at least. Dragging a bunch of music into MusicBrainz Picard at once (understandably) doesn't seem to work very well. Thanks very much for any help! (And of course, feel free to let me know if there's any more information or context I can provide.)

Just wasn't 100% clear you weren't implying something along the lines of using the branding that we currently would refer to as "Bitcoin Cash (BCH) branding", but not necessarily including the ticker in that.

> I will be sticking with Bitcoin Cash (BCH) branding. This is a little vague, so I hope you don't mind my asking you to be explicit just for extra clarity. Do you mean that, if there is a split in November, you will focus your efforts on whichever side retains the branding? (If so, by what measure? Exchanges I guess?) Or do you mean that, regardless of any "consensus", you'll continue using the Bitcoin Cash branding to refer to whichever side of the split you support?

I'd also like some sort of special treatment for Menufy. My suggestion: the "Website" link should be accompanied by a "Pay with BCH on Menufy" link, and the "Powered by Menufy" text on the listing should be BRIGHT RED (or something to get your attention, so you don't just walk in expecting to be able to pay in BCH). Ideally, they would also be marked on the map itself, maybe with a little extra icon in the corner of the BCH icon.

Seconded! I started with XBOX and greatly prefer their controllers. I now have a steam controller that I thought would be cool for the touch pads, but it's the gryo that has sold me on it. Now that SC is no longer available, I'd REALLY rather get an XBOX controller with a gyro than a DS4 or Switch controller when my SC finally goes. But until that happens, there is 0 chance of my purchasing another XBOX controller.

I'm afraid that my steam controller settings wouldn't be useful to you because I also did a bunch of finagling with the in-game controls. But all you should have to do is go to your steam controller settings and then set the gyro to always on and map it to right joystick. (Someone else in this subreddit was talking about how rocket league is supposed to have native SC support, but... I don't think it does, at least not anymore?) Fair warning, it's pretty disorienting at first and you'll feel like a bronze! But I do totally recommend at least giving it a shot to see how you feel about it. I'm definitely enjoying it and would be surprised if I at some point decided to stop using it.

I see that you've said in a comment here that the goal of the site is for people to post jobs, but personally I'd feel more comfortable with an interface like on Fiver where you browse "sellers". That way they can advertise their past work of proof of their skills or whatever, they can set their own prices (and then I can just decide if it fits my budget, at least partially depending their quality of their advertised past work), *they* can tell *me* the expected completion time (maybe I don't really know how long it takes a professional to put together a baller YouTube thumbnail), etc. Is there any chance of that sort of thing being implemented on Venezuela Workers? If not, do you know generally what skills the people in Venezuela that use the site have? I'd be enthusiastic about paying people to do random awesome shit I'd never usually even consider just to use support BCH and your platform, if only I knew what was available.

If you're in a position where you're able to contribute 0.1 BCH, this is a good way to support the growth of the ecosystem, not to mention cement your name in a piece of P2P Cash history ;-)

You may be surprised! My flicks and dribbling are already as-good-as or better-than before I switched to gryo camera, and building up the habit of keeping your posture and hand-position in a neutral default most of the time isn't as much of a pain as you might think. (And once you've gotten that down, it's not different than regular play until you decide to move the controller and take advantage of your gyro camera.) Of course, *maybe* there's a reason it actually would turn out to be awful for most players (or maybe even just high level players, or just low level players)... but that hasn't been the case for me so far at least! One thing I do think would be nice is some sort of haptic feedback from the controller so that I could feel when I'm totally neutral and more easily "lock in" to that. And I'm sure there are TONS of related possibilities too.

> because the bigger chain can just 51% attack the smaller one. The fact that that *could* happen doesn't mean it would. Maybe at that point, it wouldn't even be worth the bigger miner's loss in profits, and attacks would actually be more likely at something like 75%/25%. I don't claim to know either way, just that we don't know for sure the smaller chain would get 51% attacked, regardless of how small it is.

>Is there a minimum number of fusions that should be done to consider coins properly anonymized? Yes and no. My understanding is that even one Fusion gives a coin pretty good privacy. (Plausible deniability at least.) But if every single other person from that Fusion round then combines a bunch of their new UTXOs, the privacy of that specific round is reduced (though not necessarily completely compromised). It's a game of numbers and, after multiple Fusions, the number of possible "solutions" (explanations of which coins came from where) gets like, ***STUPID*** big. So even then, combining UTXOs really stops mattering. I've heard ideas thrown around of auto-stopping a coin from being Fused at ~10 Fusions, but I don't know if there's any non-arbitrary math going into that number. >I also need to figure out how much I lose in fees if I let it run 24/7. I know fees are subcent but it can add up. I don't want to wake up one day and find that I fused my coins away lol! If you get a fusion transaction into every block, that's: ~$300/BCH * ~0.00002 BCH fee/tx * 1 tx/block * 144 blocks/day = ~$0.864/day As long as that math is right and I didn't do anything stupid, that's probably within a power of 2 of what you could expect to pay in fees per day if you Fused 24/7.

If there are different features implemented by two sides of a fork, using an exclusive feature will also split your coins, no tainting with new coins needed. Also, if the two chains differ significantly in their block height, you can use that to split your coins. There are probably other ways that I don't know about. But tainting coins with new dust may be the most reliable method for any "generic" chain split.

>It's not arbitrary, it's the protective incentive system laid out in the whitepaper. Holders are incentivized to protect the value of their holdings, in a nutshell. That's why they (we?) are also going to want to "make BCH affordable to new investors" because... it increases the value of BCH! It's to the same end. "Protecting the value of their holdings" is completely different from **actively changing the rate of inflation to benefit holders**. >>Every bit that BCH is worth more in the short term because of lower inflation is an extra amount someone buying it has to pay >You just argued against price increasing in general, though. No, it's an argument against actively and arbitrarily changing the rate of inflation. It's a zero sum game. Every bit someone wins, someone else loses, so any "benefits" to a specific group over a specific period of time are irrelevant.

The fact that one group is derailing development makes it pretty clear to me that, if they actually decide to release a client with their own unreasonable changes and some percentage of miners are likely to run it, then it will certainly be the time and place for a chainsplit. While frustrating, I don' think it's worth rage quitting over. ABC can release whatever code they want, and so can everyone else.

> To your other question in the post, I use a tool called "rsnapshot" to take nightly backups of my Plex database and metadata folders. Rsnapshot uses rsync under the hood, but it will automatically rotate the backups for you and uses hardlinks so that you can keep x number of days of backups without actually having to store x separate copies of the data (it will only store the delta instead). For example, I retain the last 7 days of nightly backups before they rotate out. You could set the backup target as your second drive (or RAID 1). Very cool, thank you for the recommendation! > If the converting to a RAID 1 is more risk than you want to take on, you could always buy an external hard drive from a Walmart or something, temporarily put all your data there, make a RAID 1 out of your two drives and copy then data back, then wipe/zero the external drive and return it to the store for a refund, lol. Haha that's true xD And actually my library is under 500 gigs at the moment, so moving everything off and then raiding the drives will probably be doable if I can find an old hard drive of at least that size...

The "temperament" only tells you which intervals in the "family" of tunings will approximate which intervals of Just Intonation, not which of those intervals to use as a scale. But superpyth does *sort of* have associated MOS scales. If you choose the octave (2/1) to be your period, that leaves only 2 possible generators, 4/3 and 3/2 (inverses of each other of course, so it's really only one choice). Our western scales are also generated by a 2/1 and 3/2, so you'll actually end up with the same "scale structures" in superpyth as we have in standard western tuning, up until they diverge in "superchromatic" territory. (So it will support a pentatonic, diatonic, and chromatic scale.) The fundamental difference, though, will be in the "mapping". While in standard western tuning, we arguable use C-E-G to approximate 4:5:6, superpyth uses C-D#-G, which is only accurate when the fifth is sharper than pythagorean... ergo "superpythagoreaon" ;-) (In superpyth, C-E-G approximates 14:18:21, since C-E approximates 9:7.) So basically, you can think of it exactly like standard western scales in terms of melodic structure, with different points of harmonic rest. Here's a "tutorial" for superpyth that includes some of this information along with a few audio examples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSU1Yc7VMQA And here's a round written in superpyth, notated using standard western notation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xONo-1OxSAw

I will happily bombard you with links ;-) This is my current list of must-listen microtonal music in popular styles: #Sevish Every single release from Sevish is worth a listen, but my top recommendations are Sean But Not Heard and Golden Hour: https://sevish.bandcamp.com/album/sean-but-not-heard https://sevish.bandcamp.com/album/golden-hour #Zia: Four-Momentum This album manages to just sound... really good. Tasteful use of the interesting things microtonality has to offer. http://split-notes.com/zia-four-momentum/ #Ilevens: Transmitter Psychedelic rock in 22 equal divisions of the octave. I really enjoy their sound, and they do a good job of using "new" sounds in combination with "regular" sounding stuff =) https://ilevens.bandcamp.com/album/transmitter #Fast-fast: New Color Bomb This is some really tastefully put together pop/rock/electronic/other/etc. Some Adam-Neely-method inspired tunes, too! https://jamesmulvale.bandcamp.com/album/new-color-bomb #Jack Tickner: Reassuring Weight Math-y indie rock and holy crap is the songwriting good on this one https://jacktickner.bandcamp.com/album/reassuring-weight #Mercury Tree: Spidermilk This album is pure prog rock insanity. It's sometimes a little out there, but I think the songwriting is good, and they do TONS of righteously cool stuff worth hearing. https://themercurytree.bandcamp.com/album/spidermilk #King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard: Flying Microtonal Banana Creative use of quarter tones that doesn't suck! https://kinggizzard.bandcamp.com/album/flying-microtonal-banana #(me) Finally, here is some music I've made with alternative tunings. Definitely not part of the "must-listen" category, but please feel free to check it out if you're interested! (Rock/Electronic, as if that gives you anything to go on =P) https://johnmoriarty.bandcamp.com/album/dont-look-back

I mean, it's an open source project, so either it's transparently a piece of malware, you were subject to a man in the middle attack, or it's a false positive. I'm not qualified to give security advice, but my guess would be that it's that latter.

Hi r/synthesizers! I'm a tuning geek, and so was thrilled to find out that a synth as high-quality as Surge had been recently outfitted with full-keyboard microtuning support. That means that it can load "Scala" tuning files (.scl), AND keyboard mapping files (.kbm), which is really the gold standard for alternative tuning functionality in a synth. Would love to hear any thoughts you have and, while I'm not an expert on the synth itself yet, I'd be happy to answer any questions. Cheers!

Maybe in this case that's the obvious move but, for the record, it seems like a potentially bad idea to be willing to consider ANY proposal, at ANY point, just because it's "better" to dismiss things on their merits. Doesn't that provide the perfect path to derailing upgrade proposals? Just like what ABC has done with Grasberg this time?

Haha I have no hesitation in taking full credit for this one, because this one's me ;-) (I'm a major geek about two things: Bitcoin, and Music Theory. I guess I'm a minor geek about a few other things but those two take the cake.) Very cool that you've been encouraging your favorite channels to do that though!

Probably not worth calling it a cult/dictatorshit, mostly because I don't think that it will convince anyone who doesn't already realize it's turned into something culty, but also because it will just make it that much easier to paint you as someone trying to "divide" the community... even if it's already been pretty effectively divided by the person it's pretty obvious you're referring to here.

Whoops, there's a CashFusion group, maybe that was the CashShuffle group before. (Or maybe all CashShuffle conversation happened in the Electron Cash telegram group? My memory is useless.) Either way, here's the EC group where CashShuffle questions would be welcome, I'm sure: https://t.me/electroncashwallet >Is CashFusion the replacement of CashShuffle or is it supposed to be used in conjunction with CashShuffle? This is actually something that wasn't super clear early on, but it looks like CashFusion will be able to replace CashShuffle entirely. (There is nothing that CashShuffle does that CashFusion doesn't do better, at least as far as I know.) CashShuffle always increases your number of UTXOs, while Fusion can actually go either direction. Cash Fusion does have its own telegram group and, if you'd like to dive into that (highly recommend), here's that link: https://t.me/cashfusion

>Each individual wallet is what is called a player, and when 5 players are found in a pool a shuffle happens, each pool on a server can shuffle more than 1 time per block(?). Don't know about whether or not this is the case, feel free to ask in the Telegram group! >A wallet that shuffles will always get more inputs, but never fewer inputs, unless already-shuffled inputs are consolidated into a new input. A wallet that constantly shuffles without consolidating inputs will eventually hit the minimum pool amount or dust amount. Yes, and this is why CashFusion (available in Alpha, coming soon as an official release of EC) is such a big deal. It allows you to do basically the same thing as CashShuffle, but with arbitrarily sized inputs, and arbitrary numbers of inputs. In fact, just in Alpha, CashFusion has reduced the UTXO set by over 9000 inputs, which is pretty cool =)

Currently it's the only amount that's implemented. With more liquidity, the number could probably have been raised (right now, a larger number would mean few shuffles overall), but for now you can just reshuffle coins from the coins tab for more privacy.
