    And now what did you do TODAY?

    ^^^ Ugh, thanks for the reminder. I still need to do our taxes. Odds are I will not end up on the winning side.

    Post what you're watching

    @Hopstretch and @morphsci - the Google suggests that we should be watching Netflix's, Love Death and Robots.

    Have not watched The Expanse, will now start. Altered Carbon was throughly enjoyable.

    What are you Grilling now?

    This thread has gone entirely too quiet. 3lb pork shoulder went in the smoker late last night. Hit 160 at 9 this morning and it's now wrapped/crutched and headed for 205. Looking forward to dinner.

    Protip3: See if you can download and pre-fill any forms. Saves the hassle of pen and ink.

    I feel your pain, Doug. I had to update my license earlier in the month, the paper work could be filled out online, but I still had to show up at the DMV and wait an hour and a half in line to basically have my picture taken. i then had to wait three weeks to receive the license in the mail.

    I'd like to buy a smoker.

    There was a post before his, which was removed.

    What are you EATING right now?

    All of it was SOOOOO good. And Lily may come steal Dox from Colin.
  12. I don't know if this will be a good topic or not but what the heck, I'll shitcan it later if necessary. Basically, the idea is to post if you're having trouble sourcing a particular part. Not one you forgot to order, but something new that perhaps you haven't used before and you'd like input on. Example (and the reason I started this thread): I'm looking for an IEC module that contains a voltage selector switch. So far I've found 4 that I like, which I've listed below. #1: Digi-Key - 603-1149-ND (Manufacturer - 10SB3S) Pros: simple all in one, filter could be a plus Cons: voltage selection is not user friendly, don't need the built in power switch #2: Digi-Key - 603-1144-ND (Manufacturer - 06AK5) Pros: much better voltage selector Cons: i hate snap in modules #3: Digi-Key - CCM1375-ND (Manufacturer - PE0SSS000) Pros: good mount, good voltage selector Cons: don't need the switch #4: Digi-Key - 486-1090-ND (Manufacturer - 4301.0001) Potentially perfect, just not entirely sure how the voltage selector works. I read the data sheet and probably need to do so again. Anyone have any bright ideas other than me sitting down with the Digikey catalog for a few hours?

    Fuck in snow

    Cut that shit out. I've had quite enough of that at home.

    No worries, gents. The thought is still appreciated!

    Fuck in snow

    Honestly, I've abused the heck out of my Toro. I've made it clear just about everything, from heavy wet snow to ice crusted junk. It has its limits, don't get me wrong, but for the price it is impossibly good. I think the most insane thing I've done with it is clear 3 or 4 storms worth of snow off the deck (some 30"). It took a while, and I had to attack it in layers, but was still way easier than actually shoveling. And it's currently snowing outside, so odds are good that I'll start tomorrow by using some variety of snow removal devices.

    Thanks everyone, it was a great day.

    Fuck in snow

    This would seem to warrant a "pics or ban" sort of comment, but let's not get all stalkery. Serious suggestion, in addition to Jeff's excellent recommendation I'd have a look at something like this - https://www.amazon.com/Earthwise-SN70016-Electric-Corded-Shovel/dp/B073V482GY/ref=pd_cp_86_1?pd_rd_w=ccxxo&pf_rd_p=ef4dc990-a9ca-4945-ae0b-f8d549198ed6&pf_rd_r=8NWC5BQA6354XCBW7BDA&pd_rd_r=f47fe814-3d03-11e9-aaa6-cf0e18ac2bd6&pd_rd_wg=KpYhO&pd_rd_i=B073V482GY&psc=1&refRID=8NWC5BQA6354XCBW7BDA - I bought the Toro version 6 years or so ago and it's paid for itself more times than I can count. In a pinch I've used it to clear several inches of snow off of the whole driveway (175' long, many extension cords used...) and it's a back saver for clearing decks. And we're in roughly the same boat as Todd. It's snowing currently but only predicted to drop an inch or so but then there's ~6" predicted for tomorrow night, depending on who you believe.

    Coffee Drinkers?

    This. I buy 2lbs every time I buy (to get free shipping) and it usually takes me around a month to get through both bags but I'm not going to pound coffee just to get through a bag faster. I grind the beans daily and prep in the French press. This is so much better than 90% of the coffee that I could buy on my way to work and less than 1/4 the cost.
