    I went and saw Southern Culture on the Skids last night. I hadn't thought of them in years when I saw the tickets go on sale several months ago. Boy am I glad I bought tickets. They still put on a fantastic show.

    I’d bet a raspberry pi 4b plus xbian would do it for less than $75

    Has something changed about how high voltage electricity works that would make a new design better than an old one? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I miss the finger print reader. Face unlock is a pain in the ass in the car.

    you should be able to pull the ssd. I had a bubble stuff incident a few years back and the ssd survived it. Just clean it carefully.

    Coffee Drinkers?

    That doesn’t match my experience at all. Beans make a huge difference. Unless you like French or Italian roast espresso blends of course. Yes, you have to have the right grind, temperature, roast profile, pressure and temperature profile during extraction, but all that is just a skill. Beans are the difference between Starbucks and awesome. Mysore coffee is why I roast my own. I can get them when they’re available and have roast them when I want them.

    My first attempt at ramen eggs. Presentation leaves a lot to be desired, and the white was too firm but the texture of the yolk was fantastic.
