The anti🚫-derailment🚃 & thread🧵 hijacking🔫 thread🧵 ⁉

Yes I do hate being a natural human being because I share DNA with that person lol
And also all the mental and physical flaws that come with being human. Why wouldn’t you want to progress humanity further by chipping away at flaws like having to carry stuff that you can loose which then cause headaches and time/money loss?

Even outside the body the pm3 easy has a seriously difficult time reading it. It’s very sensitive to position and orientation.

Later on I’ll get a photo of ideal position for you.

If I can add anything to it, your body fat matters a lot. My next wasn’t being read for almost 4 weeks after installation and I had to do a lot of hand gymnastics to get it it read properly. Since I lost nearly 60 kg, walletmor was readable in 2/3 days and not more gymnastics with the next. Flex type is of course easier to read.
Also make sure you actually understand where the implant is. Mine was roughly 3 cm away from the place I thought it was.

Can anyone recommend a good ergonomic chair that’s not like a thousand bucks or feels cheap / is ugly as hell?
I spend ~12h/day sitting.
From previous discussions I know I want these inline skater style wheels, but I could add them extra on good chairs.

I have bought a NeueChair, an office chair made by Secret Labs which does gamer chairs.

Looks like an Aeyron from Herman Miller but much cheaper.

I’ve searched for a long time and a few months ago I decided to just don’t look for cheaper alternatives and I’ve bought the Aeron from Herman Miller. I can only recommend it. It’s expensive, but man…it works. Especially in the US, you can find used Aerons quite easily for cheap: Get A Herman Miller Aeron for CHEAP + Buying Guide!!! - YouTube

Also, this is a must if you intend to get comfortable sometimes: https://atlasheadrest.com/ . You can’t tell that it’s aftermarket addon - it’s really great :slight_smile:

Wh even uses through hole parts these days :sweat_smile:

The first chip I ever had in my body was through hole… Had the thing on the bottom of my foot for a few seconds and it was more painful than an X series.

I’m mostly using SMD stuff nowadays but that comic brought back some childhood memories…

I didn’t but no matter what I did, I always ended up bending the pins on those things…

I still have the scar from an accident I had while trying to score a raw PCB to cut it to size…

I know you’re from Germany - did you take a look at Backforce Chairs yet? I have one of them, and I totally love it - especially the synchro mechanism is a wonderful thing to have. It’s not cheap, but it’s manufactured in Germany and the quality is really good.
The other chair I use for gaming is the Recaro, which is even a bit better in quality but lacks the synchro mechanism - it’s an amazing chair, but a bit expensive :wink:

That quantifier is redundant isn’t it?
To me German means quality and precision :straight_ruler: :triangular_ruler:

You could have just said

“get a Backforce chair, it’s German made” :wink:

I think usually, that’s kinda right :wink:
But another big plus for me is that the people who build this chair are paid a fair wage and that the company is actually still a family-run business - doesn’t neccessarily lead to better quality, but I like to support such things as well :wink:

Yes! I’m tempted to buy it. It looks so good, but then it also doesn’t look to good posture wise.
It’s not very configurable right?
But I agree it’s one of the more ethical choices, which is a big plus.

In that budget range, I’d rather buy a new Hermann Miller Embody.
Actually I’ve just written to someone selling a used embody for half the original price, because it has ugly scratches. I’ll see if I can snag that, if I don’t find another good used deal I’ll probably get a backforce.

I have read some bad things about them, idk maybe I should igve that one another look…

I have the One Plus, and I can configure it perfectly - maybe I’m just lucky, but I fit into that chair really well. There are several things you can adjust, so I think if you’re not extraordinarily tall or small, it should be okay :wink:
One thing I like a lot about that chair is that I can adjust the seat depth - really nice if you’re not so tall.
