  1. God, it feels like it wasn't that long ago when this was brand new. We is old, Nate.
  2. Today's batards. They (well, the one I ate, anyway) turned out very nicely.
  3. Thank you, HemiSam. I don’t know what the sweet spot is. When I had a Patek 3940g for a week was where I should have stopped, but keeping the watch.
  4. That’s a beautiful piece, as I remembered. I’ll go to the store tomorrow. Was going to go today, but panic attack. I really, really wish I had a BSL3 suit. I bet the 39mm Speedy wears beautifully. Better than my 42mm Pros.The GMT 2 looks like a monster in comparison.
  5. I really like my Apple watches, but I understand. I might switch to a GMT Master for the afternoon, if I can find a bottle of gin in my pantry... No gin found. I knew there wouldn’t be any. How does the FOIS wear? I have a pre-moon and a current pro, but I’m not that familiar with how other Speedies (and yours is a beauty) wear. I am down to a 6.5 inch wrist now, but I honestly think the Pros wear smaller than my 116170LN, though bigger than the 1675.
  6. I'm wearing mechanicals for the first time in weeks. Why don't they unlock my computers when I walk nearby? Anyway, attached is a comparison of JLC and Cartier blued-hands. I think the JLC hands are a bit nicer, at least on a less-than-sunny day. There is a slight variation in the thermal-bluing, so I'd say that all of these are hand-blued, but the JLC hands are done slightly slower, which is why they pop so much.
  7. Crisping up some tofu for a sandwich. Sourdough salted boule.
  8. I made my first demi-baguette in many years. It turned out okay. I made roasted garlic vegan "butter" as a topper. Tofu is delicious. I freeze it, then press it, then brine it, then batter and fry it.
  9. Nice, Nate! I was less good: I smoked cigarettes on a friend's balcony. I only smoke during pandemics.
  10. If the bracelet were 2mm thinner, I think it would look a lot better.
  11. My days, in social isolation, are spent listening to podcasts while I go about exercise, cooking, and fussing with cats. I haven't put on a non-Apple watch in weeks. I miss my real ones, but it's so nice being able to control a Podcast from my wrist.
  12. I like that room a lot.
  13. Mine has gone from normal to slow as shit. I haven't really discovered a pattern to the timing.
  14. I really like that rug. It really ties the room together.
  15. He's brilliant, for sure!
  16. I haven't read his last two, but AR is one of my favorite writers (I have those two, I just haven't read yet).
  17. Happy birthday, Al: stay home.
  18. Assuming I survive this (as an immunosepressed individual, but one who worked in a BSL3 and had a CDC license, so I have a leg up on most), I plan on getting that new iPad Pro 12.9 with the keyboard.
  19. My Westone ES5 no longer fit, unfortunately (weight loss is a bitch for some things: I should get them remolded, again), but I finally have a pair of JH phones. It's the humble AK x JH Billie Jeans. Funny how a $350 pair of IEMs is now humble. I have HD-800S and Meze Emperyean (and my favorite headphones of all time, my vintage RS-1, but they have a cable fault) at my disposal, at the moment, run from a pretty stacked rig, but the Billie Jeans are my most listened to phones, now that my AirPods have died (I average about 30,000 steps a day, so portability is important to me). I have compared them to my latest somewhat broken pair of Ety ER-4P (I don't even know how many pairs of Etys I've had, at this point: this pair has to be held by hand on the right side to work in stereo), and the Billie Jeans remind me very much of the Etys, but better. I'm very glad to have them. I think they are excellent.
  20. That link has been removed. That suggests it was less than legitimate.
  21. I’m not a real big fan of giant racks of gear in front of my screen...
