    Coffee Drinkers?

    I’m basically doing the same thing you are, Nate, only pour-over instead of French press. While it sounds like buying one 1-lb bag at a time is best as far as flavor goes, it also sounds like doing 2 1-lb bags at a time and consuming them within a month also isn’t the end of the world. And yeah, the cost savings of doing it at home are insane. I used Quicken to look at how much I spent on Starbucks and Peet’s coffee in 2018. It was a lot. This coffee is better and, even at a fairly high cost per bag, so much cheaper. Grinding and brewing in the morning is also kind of enjoyable.

    Coffee Drinkers?

    I have a question as far as storage is concerned. I bought two bags from a local roaster today. It will take me two weeks or so to get through the first bag. Is the right thing to do to put the 2nd bag in an airtight container in the freezer until I finish the first one?

    I have the non-Focal focused DSHA-3 on my desk here at work and I can recommend the amp without qualification! It looks and sounds beautiful, and Doug's post-sale support has been 2nd to none.

    MLB playoffs 2014

    Screw baseball and their moronic secret ballot Hall of Fame voting. Clemens and Bonds not getting voted in year after year is a disgrace. The way baseball as a sport has handled the PED era is asinine beyond belief. Judge, jury and executioner indeed. *END RANT*

    RIP some fuck or another

    RIP Jack Bogle. Founder of Vanguard and champion of passive, low-cost investing through index funds. As someone whose primary holding is an S&P index fund I am very much firm believer of his and I am thankful for the changes he worked to bring about in the finance industry. From his wikipedia page: Investment philosophy Bogle's innovative idea was creating the world's first index mutual fund in 1975. Bogle's idea was that instead of beating the index and charging high costs, the index fund would mimic the index performance over the long run—thus achieving higher returns with lower costs than the costs associated with actively managed funds. Bogle's idea of index investing offers a clear yet prominent distinction between investment and speculations. The main difference between investment and speculation lies in the time horizon. Investment is concerned with capturing returns on the long-run with lower risk, while speculation is concerned with achieving returns over a short period of time. Bogle believed this is an important analysis to be taken into account as short-term, risky investments have been flooding the financial markets. Bogle is known for his insistence, in numerous media appearances and in writing, on the superiority of index funds over traditional actively managed mutual funds. He contends that it is folly to attempt to pick actively managed mutual funds and expect their performance to beat a low-cost index fund over a long period of time, after accounting for the fees that actively managed funds charge. Bogle argued for an approach to investing defined by simplicity and common sense. Below are his eight basic rules for investors: Select low-cost funds Consider carefully the added costs of advice Do not overrate past fund performance Use past performance to determine consistency and risk Beware of stars (as in, star mutual fund managers) Beware of asset size Don't own too many funds Buy your fund portfolio – and hold it

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    I think I hit something in a puddle. Changing a tire in the rain is not fun. One of the 5 lugs securing the wheel snapped off when I was removing the flat so had to drop her at the mechanic for them to fix. Oh well. Shit happens.
