@genrtyl:matrix.orggenrtineAlthough we did kind of shunt your review way into the history06:28:45
@stefan:lightnovel-dungeon.destefanwell kinda. But doing my best live it up a bit lol06:29:42
@genrtyl:matrix.orggenrtineso dunno06:28:47
@genrtyl:matrix.orggenrtineWatch this thing: https://matrix.to/#/!btpflgsoorrVibJlHy:matrix.org/$5071GaPU430wMCosd_aXJAF2Wgm2EGxsvwoEmfmTzT8?via=matrix.org&via=privacytools.io&via=midov.pl :P06:29:45

It is nothing you can anything for lol. SInce you are not really my target audience, since this is the only english video I have atm
06:30:50
@stefan:lightnovel-dungeon.destefanIt is quite long and contains spoilers so getting people to watch it is hard. Even posting about it on reddit does not really reel in that many views lol. But I am also bad at marketing my stuff06:32:28
@genrtyl:matrix.orggenrtineAlso the audience for LNs tends to be much smaller than the one for anime and manga, I guess06:32:19
@genrtyl:matrix.orggenrtineThat's kind of my perception anyway06:32:27
@genrtyl:matrix.orggenrtinein the "West"06:32:30

especially in a really niche market as germany anyway. But I still have fun writing about stuff. Though sometimes I wish more people would get to see it. But i have some plans ahead
06:34:20
@stefan:lightnovel-dungeon.destefanThough on the clicks you can really see which light novel has an anime or is popular lol06:35:47

@stefan:lightnovel-dungeon.destefanthis one is really interesting. It is the video for 300 years slime that now started airing. Right around when it started you see an unusual spike in views towards the end. This was for the 7th of april lol06:40:42
@lolimojsej:kawaiilo.lilolimojsejI came across this study https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/22762257/ comparing LCD screen to e-ink. It concludes that e-ink screen aren't necessarily less eye-straining which I think is common misconception (at least I thought so). 09:12:12
@stefan:lightnovel-dungeon.destefanI will read that one later. Seems interesting09:15:23
@stefan:lightnovel-dungeon.destefanAlthough I specifically said for me its the type of lighting used causing less strain. I can get behind how people could confuse that09:18:00
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaThe study seems to have a sample size of 10 people so lets take it with a grain of salt :)09:41:22
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaI would also like to know more about the effects of reading before bedtime when using an backlit/self-emitting tech like LCD or OLED vs E-ink. Especially if they could also study the effect on the type of light used (blue vs yellow light for example).09:44:34
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaI would lean towards there being little difference between OLED and E-Ink provided they are the same temperature and quantity of light. Contrast and sharpness should play much bigger roles in that case.09:47:00
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaLight isn't exactly magic. Reading on e-ink still shines light into your eyes, its just reflected of the more or less white background of the e-ink screen. Its certainly true that the bright blue light that makes up most LCD backlights is probably not great, but its also not necessary to use that kind of light. OLED should be able to tweak its temperature and reduce its intensity to basically match that of the light reflected from an E-ink screen. Or at least I would think so? This leaves the other factors as the most important, what kind of light, the contrast of the screen, the sharpness of the text, etc. 09:52:34
@stefan:lightnovel-dungeon.destefanmy e-reader and phone have a night mode where the display will get more yellow the later it gets. As far as I know (without emperical data at Hand) blue light causes more Eyestrain than the "yellowed" one09:59:36
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaOf course none of the above really touches upon the biggest benefit of e-ink for an e-reader style device: Battery life. How useful that benefit is I guess depends on where and how you use your e-reader. Most reviewers and people I've seen seem use the lighting feature anyway, which does drain battery fairly rapidly, as least if it has enough LED's to deliver a uniform light over the screen. But in theory the benefit is there if you're using other lights in the room or just the sun while outside.09:59:47
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaOh, and e-ink has perfect viewing angles, for when you're reading at 179 degrees while hanging upside down, as you do. Probably more useful in other e-ink applications. :) Tough to be fair with OLED its basically the same thing, perfect viewing angles for all intents and purposes.10:02:38
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaI guess the fact that its a reflective rather than emissive surface is also a benefit when it has to compete with other sources of light, like the sun. Its always going to be readable, even more so, when there are other light sources around. This is not the case for OLED which has a famously low peak brightness and therefor has a hard time competing with the sun. Ask anyone using an OLED TV in a bright sunlit room vs a more traditional and much brighter LCD based TV.10:06:27

@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaAlso yay this gives a good reason to link Technology Connections, a wonderful little (these days more like gigantic with million+ subs) solo channel where a guy just explains tech, and often look back at older tech and why it was cool :3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhRgw0HfrYU10:14:34
@Dezponia:matrix.orgDezponiaOne great video (though off topic for the room) is his video on an old toaster that is super clever :P https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OfxlSG6q5Y10:15:40

@genrtyl:matrix.orggenrtineAnyways, we're abstracting too much11:47:45
@genrtyl:matrix.orggenrtineThe point of e-ink displays is that they look like paper11:47:53
