After three days without coffee I now limit myself to one per day. A good tea or smoothie can be just as good. Still craving cappuccinos... Nov 18, 2017 at 5:42 PM

        Oh @jexby you flirtatious little rat. I love all good coffee but espresso and delightful whole milk is my breakfast of champions. And maybe a banana on my hour long commute. I know, my habits aren't great.

      Starting the day with fresh mint tea and Prog is a good way to start breakfast...

      Two days no coffee. Sometimes I drank coffee just for the energy boost to numb my aching muscles. Aching muscles keep you even more awake...

        Caffeine sensitivity (causes palpitations) + personal reaction to coffee means I don't drink coffee cause it keeps me awake but useless since I can't concentrate.

        Only need to look at the number of posts in my (European) daytime from non-Europeans to get an idea about the prevalence of sleep problems...

        I have to use some automated soft sometimes that runs for good 10 min at a time. Key thing is to turn the monitor towards coworkers, then it's safe to pass out for 15 min.

      The Lenovo crashed. Now the Surface Pro for desktop duties. I only miss a bigger screen and the HDMI. Surprisingly capable...

        I would think you'd be able to grab an HDMI adapter for $10 or so if you plan to use the surface pro for very long, no? Or maybe it's not a priority...

        ..though it only needs a few minutes to fully wake up. Switching on, making tea and then sitting down to listen generally does the trick :)

        I love that routine. When I do that I listen music for about 2 hours and then realise "oh I have things to do."

        “Let’s Go Crazy” is easily in contention for best album opener ever, “When Doves Cry” is one of the most unique singles in pop history, and “The Beautiful Ones” is as good as any classic soul song by Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, or Aretha Franklin.

        I go to Berlin by train. I stay there for 3 days max so I keep the bike at home. I wish I could plan a good MTB holiday but I only have 1 week off.

        A shiny new chain, clear metal and crisp acceleration. Just a 30 minute ride is going to be exiting...

      Developing a liking for watches makes me realise something. Advanced gear costs money. You waste less on B.S.

        While there are many good resources out there, my watch appreciation has really been enhanced by the Gray Nato podcast and NBS Watchmaker on Instargram.

        You're right, advanced gear costs money and quality workmanship can last for generations.

        Seiko's special automatic watches really raise my interest. The automatic mechanism combined with that solar cell, I am going to save up for something like that.

        I've got a Citizen eco-drive I've been very happy with. It's been a beater tool watch that just keeps on ticking. I have no doubt the Seiko has similar qualities.

        Sometimes I’ll focus on a single instrument and it’s as interesting as listening to a solo. Was listening to some live Dave Brubeck and was just mesmerized by the drums the entire time.

        Yeah. I am de-stressing now, listening to some King crimson. Cadence and Cascade is one of my favorite tracks. So relaxing and peaceful. I especially like the Greg lake vocal version, but I just really like Greg lake.

        I think I saw a report recently that Surface Pros have an average lifespan of 2 years and are mostly unrepairable. So test everything you can on it.

        Make sure it charges properly. I have had one since it came out and my power connector has gotten very finicky. Have to hold it at an angle with tape to get it to charge. Also test for proper touch and pen input, as well as wifi and heat output. Those are potential problem areas according to experience and research. Enjoy!

        Will do. It will see light use from me. I considered a Chromebook or Android tablet but a good condition i5 Surface Pro is still better than most budget devices with a 10 inch screen.
