what are y'alls self defense weapons of choice?
ukulele/guitar strings question Show more
I want to tune my ukulele like a tenor guitar (CGDA, with the A being the same as the A normally on a uke). How do I figure out what strings to use???
battery question Show more
My keyboard uses 6 AA batteries. It was dying, so I tested all the batteries to see if that was the problem. Only one of the 6 isn't still in the "good" range in my battery tester, and even that one isn't at "replace" yet. I don't want to throw away good batteries. Any ideas?
I'm thinking I could just replace the weak one, but I'm afraid it could be dangerous to mix fresh new batteries with these old ones, even though they seem to be doing fine. It's also really a shame that I have to throw away the weak one even though it still has some charge left in it :/
asking for help finding a good laptop (long) Show more
actually though, does anybody have laptop recs? I'm about to lose my school one and it's really gonna suck having to use my phone for everything. Here are the things I need:
-light (I like my back and I use a backpack a lot)
-relatively durable (I am *incredibly* clumsy, it will get dropped probably several times)
-able to edit audio/video smoothly
-able to run linux (I might want to dual boot windows so I can get some things that u can't get with linux but I'm not sure if I'm really gonna need that??)
-battery that lasts more than 4 hours (also low electricity use would be nice but not necessary)
-also I'd like a USB-C connection for convenience but I can live with something else
and perhaps most importantly,
Last time I was looking for a laptop with the same requirements I was looking at the Thinkpad T480, but I was wondering if anyone had any other recommendations :>
