I'm thinking of buying a Raspberry Pi + an 8-10TB HDD and installing Linux on it to turn it into a server that would act as a torrenting seedbox managed remotely from my desktop PC. It's going to mainly be connected to my 4K TV so that it can turn my TV into a de facto "smart TV" without all the bloat and telemetry that comes with a real smart TV and I get to be able to watch files locally instead of depending on streaming.

Some issues to think about:
>upload speeds for seeding
I used to pay for a 10GBPS seedbox which would allow me to seed and gain ratio on private trackers with ease. I'm going to be limited to my home speeds meaning that I won't be able to get the speeds I desire, but I'm pretty stacked when it comes to ratio anyway, so I should be fine.
>downloading through USB
I'm using an external HDD, so I may not get the download speeds I desire since it's going to write to the HDD through USB.
>a Raspberry Pi playing 4K
Can a Raspberry Pi locally play a 4K movie without any trouble?

All in all, is this a viable project to be making? What else would you suggest that I do with this project?

I see. I found the volume levels to be fine. So the main purpose of a DAC & AMP is to increase the volume levels for headphones that aren't getting enough power to them to have proper volume without one? And if I plug in headphones and they are sufficiently loud then I do not need one?
>>
>>76703801
the main purpose of an external DAC is to add fancy features like inputs/outputs, esoteric formats (like DSD), volume control knob and display, placebo features (like different DAC filter options), etc.

the volume level from the same headphone amp at the same setting will differ depending on which headphones you have plugged in. you cannot assume from one pair how loud it will be with a different pair of a different model.

From looking at innerfidelity's measurements, it seems the HD 660S are just HD 600s but driver matched and with slightly different treble (low treble is slightly less flat and high treble looks a bit smoother). Is that the case?

>Animation Based Movement
>At least one multi-tile (boss) enemy
what did he mean by this?
>>
>>76703733
If I had to guess
>animation based movement
Just means like easing the player when they move a place. Like right now they just jump from one tile to another, whereas an animation could make that look nicer
>At least one multi-tile boss
Right what it says on the tin, right now enemies are just one square (tile) big, so he wants one that's more than that as it would allow greater detail or whatever to it
>>
>>76703733
Poor wording, thrown in just to have a (content) direction for the time being.
>Animation-based movement
"Normal" movement, as opposed to standard snap-to-grid roguelike movement. I honestly don't mind the current movement system that much though, I've acclimated surprisingly quickly.
>At least one multi-tile (boss) enemy
Typically bosses are illustrated as larger than other enemy types, the idea is an enemy spanning multiple tiles. "(boss)" is meant more as a hint as to what way you should think about it, rather than an intention for it.

USB3 also talks native sata so the performance is relatively good.
Anyway I'll support an ssd on a shit device, the downside is only cost to storage size. Anything I want decent amount of storage on wants decent performance where a pi isn't going to cut it.

No seriously, how?

you don't actually need a bootable USB to install an OS, a bootable USB just launches a convenient interactive installer which installs to an interal drive on your computer. it's entirely possible to install an OS without even booting.

Does anyone here have an unconventional desk setup?

Maybe a tablet docked to a monitor, or a phone docked to a monitor for Samsung Dex, or a tablet/keyboard/mouse setup?

Why are you using that setup, and what are the pros and cons?
>>
imagine not having a VA panel with superior contrast ratio and instead having a brainlet ips with dark greys as black.
