  1. I made my first demi-baguette in many years.  It turned out okay. I made roasted garlic vegan "butter" as a topper.

    Love you Al, but I am not upvoting tofu.

    Tofu is delicious.  I freeze it, then press it, then brine it, then batter and fry it.

    I agree Sam, in fact the more I look the more I dislike it. The only thing I do like is it’s in stainless steel, but that’s about it.


    If the bracelet were 2mm thinner, I think it would look a lot better. 

  3. 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.

    Catching up on Alastair Reynolds:  finished Blue Remembered Earth on Kindle, started On the Steel Breeze in actual book form.

    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).

    Do we care about new Apple products in days like these? If so, the new iPad Pro looks pretty nice. Merging continues. 

    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.

  6. 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.

    Well, this is interesting. On eBay right now is a Trilogy H1 plus SR-009 for a Buy It Now price of $3000.



    Given that used SR-009s are going for around $2100-2300 on eBay (most recent completed transactions that actually were sold), this means the seller is willing to let a 5000 GBP amp go for $700-900. And he has >6000 transactions so appears to be legit.

    That link has been removed.  That suggests it was less than legitimate.

    Nelson Pass, along with running his very successful company, supports the DIY community with some landmark minimalist designs. This is not one of them.



    Minimal compared to that system I saw years ago where a giant horn subwoofer was built into the foundation of the house!

    That setup probably sounds really nice.  But who wants to spend any time in that room?  It's downright repressive.

    I'm sure it's fine with a joint, a cat in your lap, and the lights turned low. Of course, no cat would be allowed in that room, I'm sure.

  9. He did eventually jump off. He stayed on me for about an hour. It has never happened before and I don’t know why it happened now, but he seemed to like the ride. 

  10. A highly strange parrot has been on my shoulder for the last half-hour or so. I had to contort to get his face in the frame: he seemed happy being anonymous, and won't jump off (he is digging into me as I type this).

    Nice! Quick-pickle recipe?

    Quickles Vietnamese-style are easy: just a pinch of salt and a bigger pinch of sugar, stir, let sit for a couple hours.  I dunno his recipe.  I haven't made Kimchi or Sauerkraut in ages.
