Unknowingly started a Classic run in Divinity Original Sin 2 and I'm contemplating dumping 30hrs of playtime to restart in Definitive. Jan 22, 2022 at 1:28 AM

      Well I just impulse bought pour over coffee paraphernalia. Cleaning machines can be a massive pain, not to mention grind size effery.

        My vote goes to the kalita. Less fussy than a Hario since the results are basically the same regardless of how you pour the water. I like the general idea of the clever dripper but I don’t like the idea of hot water sitting in a plastic container.

        The Kalita was a close second I think but something about how the V60 looked just worked for me. Never heard of the Clever Dripper but it does look... clever! Hah. Dammit I don't need another rabbit hole.

        @Taverius fresh pastries >> coffee unless it's a long day, haha.

        As for the two minutes of careful pouring, I actually enjoy that sorta thing for the most part. Greatly calming.

        It's fun! No major bugs other than pistol needing to be reloaded at the start of every round. Also saw an enemy t-pose after being shot but that's about it. It scratches the L4D nostalgia and is fairly challenging at mid difficulty, though I'm not an FPS player for the most part so that could just be me needing to get good.

        @DigMe as it turns out Einstein's theory on general relativity was proven way before this, and it's simply that this is the best example thereof to date.

        The fact of gravitational lensing just makes me think the universe is a far more interesting place than many make it out to be haha.

        optimist is pink, and smells faintly of roses. Pessimist is the nasty, yellowish stuff, tinged with industrial pollution.

        I haven't seen much optimist for years. Sad.

        The Keychron has been on my list but I'd rather not have to deal with batteries nor need BT, though quality of life things are always nice to have. And yep,, bought into the hype too and while I expected some deck flex the caps flying off was a severe irritant.

Amusingly I'll still be on the laptop for work since I don't have a proper webcam so I'll be suffering still.

        And yup, my interest in computers is nascent but I do remember what they were like in the early aughts. Even this relatively cruddy stock cooler from AMD (lowest tier, about two rungs below yours) is significantly more tolerable.

        The ubersticky thermal paste is less pleasant though. Argh.
