  1. he was my favorite comedian for a very long time.
  2. Why would you go finer, that timing sounds perfect?
  3. most espresso related things have standardized on 58mm, so it's probably not a coincidence. I know the dosing cup with the niche is just under 58mm, so it will match up with a portafilter.
  4. I'm going to be taking the kids with me down the Nantahala on labor day, and in preparation, my youngest has been in a sit in kayak on the lake a few times. Yesterday she decided she was ready to start learning to roll, and pulled it off in her 3rd attempt, and got it twice in a row.
  5. I can say I absolutely adore my '12 VW Touareg hybrid living in this part of Tennessee. There's a curvy isolated road that I'm on regularly that I can maintain the speed limit (55) on, even in the curvy bits that are recommended 25, and if I'm in the mood, I've been known to take a lot of it slightly faster than that. I also regularly get to drive the dragon, because I have been kayaking regularly on the Nantahala. I'll be taking that drive again tomorrow morning. Nothing like hauling 3 kayaks and keeping up with the flow on 318 curves in 11 miles.

    RMAF 2021

    I'm on staff for Otakon, a large-ish anime convention in DC. We were contractually obligated to put on a convention if we were legally able to. So we ended up having to plan and put on a convention with 78 days notice. We had 25,000 attendees, and based on all reports, we did not turn into a super spreader event. We required masks, and didn't ask vaccination status.
  7. https://fellowproducts.com/products/ode-brew-grinder?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=BRD&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI9OKix_q38gIVGlNyCh0xmA-4EAAYASAAEgLUx_D_BwE That's my "not espresso" grinder, and I'm pretty happy with it. No retention, consistent grind. If it went fine enough for espresso it'd be perfect, but I'm happy with my niche for that.
  8. i had nandos twice this weekend
  9. apparently Steve is a pickle now
  10. it's taken care of, see you in a week
  11. please take your car pissing match somewhere else
  12. yeah, and it took a while to dial in my settings. But damn it makes good espresso. i usually use valve bags but i just moved and am lucky i had time to roast 10 lbs of coffee before leaving.
  13. i brought some coffee equipment with me to otakon.
  14. ran the nolichucky gorge yesterday. Way more river than I'm particularly ready for, but I made some class IV rapids successfully. Was on a 10' dagger torrent, a whitewater sit on top, so it was partially easy mode, but also crazy hard to work in the technical areas. I swam a LOT, and the shallow areas were a nightmare. But I did it. We initially were gonna run the lower part of the river, a class 2/3 with lots of flat water, so we all brought longer boats, then the level of the gorge was right, so we did it. I'm sore as hell today.
  15. funny thing is, if I had to only have 1 type of coffee, I'd probably want it to be something I felt like continuously fiddling with. It'd at least keep it interesting.
