    Anyone started their 2020 batch yet?

    {Were going to need it}


    Going to work on sourcing ingredients. {Booze}

    Literally thought of this the other night while strolling through the grocery store and seeing fake 'nog on the shelves.  I need a new pitcher.

    I'm hoping the next M&O joint is a turntable stand, with record storage underneath. I haven't discussed this with Milo yet.

    Remember that you have a friend that can cut fancy shapes in wood that would be painful if done by hand...

    A workbench!




    I assume that's the 54" model? If so, I'll be curious to hear your thoughts on it. I've been in dire need of a bench for a while and started cleaning my shop in earnest this weekend to make space.  I haven't had a proper shop since we started building the addition on the house in 2016. It sucks!

  4. @mikeymad - let me know if you do go down the custom recable rabbit hole, I've got a closet half full of supplies like heat shrink and nylon multifilament (the good stuff, not the super microphonic techflex) of various sizes that might be able to save you some $ and hassle that I will never use.  I looked to see if I had the right 3:1 or larger stuff the other night when I wrote my initial post and sadly, don't think I have anything that'd work for the repair.  And FWIW my vote remains to keep them stock for as long as possible. I've never really found an aftermarket cable that I like as much as a lot of stock cables due to inflexibility and increased microphonics.  It might be worth looking at what stock headphone cables you like best (for example the HD800 cable is quite nice) and considering adapting one of those to your current application. You can always troll HF looking for people selling lightly used cheap stuff as well.  Anyway, just figured I'd throw a few more options out there for consideration.

  5. 1. Measure the diameter of the plug at the end of the cable.

    2. Purchase appropriate diameter 6:1 heat shrink - https://www.cableorganizer.com/heat-shrink/heat-shrink6.htm - bonus, this stuff is adhesive lined.

    3. See if a 2" section will cover and reinforce what you need, including grabbing onto the cable split housing so the whole thing can act as a strain relief for the worn cable section.


    My guess is if you do something like that, for around $30 (assuming some shipping) you'd have a nearly stock looking setup that'll last a long time if not abused.  If nothing else, it'll buy you some time to figure out the long term recabling plan.

    Phones looks nice but the product I really want is that new wireless charger that does the phone and watch at the same time.

    It's nice having wireless charging again, considering that my Android phone had it 10 years ago.  Granted, Apple has had it for a few years now to but being behind the upgrade curve as I am, my XS is the first wireless capable iPhone.  The Apple battery case has already come in handy on a couple long days of calls at home too, that way I don't have to even think about plugging the phone it at all during the day.

    I should have left that out, but it is something Claire and I used to joke about. When he did Sunday night baseball with Jon Miller he had a way of talking about himself a lot, along with a couple of comments he made repeatedly, like focusing on batters' hips as the key to success or explanation for failure. Anyway, an interesting twist is that Joe died on Jon Miller's birthday. Odd coincidence.

    Oh no, you and Claire were not alone in that opinion.  That said, RIP Joe.
