Anything better than this piece of shit?

qbittorrent download (18)
The major issue with qbittorrent is when you download a very large torrent with tons of folders inside and you only want a few ones.

This piece of shit will create the entire folder tree regardless of the folders you select. It just makes a big mess to find what you really downloaded.

Specially when the folders have japanese characters and there is no way to tell in windows easily which folder has more than 0 bytes or not.

FUCK!

What is the best phone at various price points? I don’t know shit about phones becaus I’ve never really thought it mattered. They make calls, sends texts, take photos and browse the web. What’s the difference between a $250 Asus phone and a >$1k iPhone?

But my iPhone 5S is on its last legs and now I’m in the market? What is the best phone, generally, at every $100 price bracket?

I take a fuck tonne of photos, so I’d like a lot of storage and a decent camera, for when I don’t have my mirrorless on me.

Conveniences we've lost

mm
This is a thread for talking about various conveniences we used to have but no longer do.

One of the biggest for me is programs for managing offline browsing of BBSs with things like QWK, or in UseNet something like slrnpull, which allows for you to pull down new posts and push up new posts, with unread ones being highlighted. You could run the script, wait a few moments, then have everything new waiting for you. No browsing around, no bookmarks and tabs, just a lot of time saved. Even RSS feeds are a long way removed from such a convenient and time-saving system.

Another would be downloads. Once they were regular links, meaning you could stick them all in your download manager; now they're JS links that if you do paste the "download link" in to a manager it will just download the file that links to the file you actually wanted.

fan
Okay I'm thinking about building a ventilation system for my room so I can vape/smoke without risking shorting out the parts on my PC. I was thinking something like a fan that feeds into a tube that leads out my window. Also it would help just generally keeping the amount of dust in my room low. Does anyone have something like that in their room and what do I need to start building one? If you have any recommended amazon links that would be great, cheers

nexus-7-2013
i'm still using a nexus 7 2013 with 3G as my daily driver. since it's showing it's age i thought about replacing it but google never made a successor. i also looked to apple, but the mini 4 is way too overpriced given it's age (even for apple standards). i'd rather not want to go into samsung area, do you /g/ents can recommend a model that it's basically the current years nexus 7? amazon fire is off the table, literally the same specs but a second botnet built in.

Doesn't make any sense. "gram barn"? Please write "GB" (1 billion byte) or "GiB" (2^30 byte).

>kb
Ambiguous. The symbol for the bit is 'bit'. Better write "kilobit".

Furthermore, please remember, division is indicated by a horizontal line, by a solidus (oblique stroke, /) or by negative exponents (i.e.: not a 'p').
Due to 4channel's limitations, the only option available here is the solidus, for example:
