  1. I will remember to document my pens visually from now on for you. Rhodium plated gold nib, goes with the rest of the trim. Original
  2. That is stupid expensive for a pen I don't think looks very good. Dialog 3 looks better in my opinion. For you John:
  3. After a two month back-order, I received my Pelikan M805 Stresemann. I like it, a lot. Work still necessitates use of a ballpoint often so I laser-engraved my Zebra F701. John, putting a new nib on a Pilot Metro should be as easy as pulling out the nib and feed with a bit of strength and swapping in another from a cheaper pen. I've done this by putting the nib from a $9 Plumix onto a Prera. All the same fit.
  4. In an hour. Turned out over and scored the skin to crisp it up. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  5. We are also smoking A bit of the pork belly made it onto the smoker.
  6. Mmmm, guac I counter with tonkatsu
  7. Came out ok, I think it could be improved on. Fish sauce was definitely noticeable.
  8. Saw this today: http://www.seriouseats.com/2015/04/pressure-cooker-fast-and-easy-chicken-chile-verde.html Said, "hey, I'm in NM, I have a pressure cooker, let's make this happen" Results shortly
  9. Family left a few hours ago. Got my Masters Thursday night, shook the SECAF's hand and got rather drunk that night. Movers come on Monday.
  10. My KGSSHV took two years mainly because I am lazy but also because of getting the case right before anything got soldered to a board. Casework is serious business.
  11. The variable speed is nice because it means you don't have stuff shooting out the top. I'm not sure what the difference in speeds are in the 2-speed but I like the variable to be able to throw it on low to break up big chunks and then slowly bring it up to top speed. A refurb variable looks to be about $330 fyi.
  12. For those interested, Bean Box does subscription to some of Seattle's local roasters: https://beanbox.co/ I've been getting it for a few months now and just about everything I have gotten was not just tasty, but dang fresh. Usually only a few days after the roast date it arrived on my doorstep (Seattle to Ohio). I may have a one coupon code for 15% off for those interested.
  13. I'm not even sure what would be the point. So, yeah, bring it.
  14. Oh yes and boy, does it smell good.
  15. RIP Joe, breaking out my first good pair of cans, the SR-80s
  16. I also have the V2244. It's good for most things. I also removed the safety cutoff so it pulls a harder vacuum. This is about the only good DIY chamber sealer I've seen: http://www.fishyfish.com/bobbruce/vacuum_bagger.html
  17. I grew up on one of the country's best NPR stations, WGBH, and my parent's love for Steely Dan and the like. The transition to HiFi and DIY came when I went to college for EE and had to share a dorm with two other guys. Cool though they were, headphones were the preferable choice. When I started digging and realized I needed an amp, I looked around and thought: "Hey, I can build that!" Went to a meet the next year, got praise on my build, hosted the next two meets after that, and now here I am. Edit: why is my post always the first on the second page?
  18. Thanks guys, especially nearly-the-same-birthday Uncle Absorbine. And of course, a happy birthday to very-nearly-the-same-birthday Dom!
  19. Yes Jacob, the Searzall is quite nice when it's 12F out and I don't feel like starting up the grill. Gene, my love is discreet and often silent, but still present. Or did you want some pork? Not sure how to fax a tenderloin.
  20. Dr. Gonzo's Uncommon Condiments: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/therkoproject/gimme-my-gonzos If you like all sorts of spicy stuff, I cannot recommend Dr. Gonzo's enough. His shop used to be down the street from my apartment in college. The mustards are superb, the hot sauces are delicious (I can and have done shots of one it was so good), and the mashes are like salsa made exclusively with peppers and are good just by the spoon-full. The garlicmash is like garlic cubed, good spread thinly on toast. He also used to host jam sessions in his shop on Thursday nights. I have the house band's first album, aptly titled "Roadkill Orchestra, Greatest Hits Vol. III"
