Going on this site on an e-ink android tablet is weird. Typing is weird too. Jul 13, 2019 at 3:26 PM

      Amazon lost my E-Ink package. First package in over ten years they lost. How sad....at least I'm getting a refund.

        Yeah once I ordered some Used Herman BT Premium headphones from Amazon. They were missing the USB to 2.5mm charging cable. They refunded me 100% and said to keep them.

        What an idea. Customer Service. I seem to recall my parents expecting it from everyone with whom they did business. What happened??

        Weeb.

        Jk I'd totally get an e-ink tablet if I had room in the budget, and for the exact same purpose (plus actual books... maybe :P).

        Hope the parcel arrives safely! Delivery troubles are hell on stress, both the type that involves Amazon and the type that involves babies.

        Likebook Mimas. People like it or hate it. Need a bigger screen for manga and books at home. Also, you can browse the net on it, even with the limitations of E-Ink.

        …four. The four best British things are Marmite, Rowan Atkinson, Tim Berners-Lee, Tim Brooke-Taylor, and Monty Python.

        Well, well... I'm very suprised that none of you USAians picked me up on this. I did have some doubts after posting.

        As a Brit, Heinz ketchup and beans seem very much a part of British life to me, but my suspicions are right: the company is American.

        I more sure that Marmite is British, though!

        I heard that from my dad all the time. Then he came down with it himself. He didn’t just “pull himself up by the boot straps”. Luckily I finally convinced him to see the doctor. Changed his outlook.

        As I said, I've only seen the mild end, but people are not unable to understand what it is like. The usual thing is to confuse clinical depression with being-fed-up depression. the latter can be fixed much more easily by attitude/life-change; the former, although it is sometimes triggered, has nothing to do with being fed up or unhappy etc. It is a shame that people have to find out the hard way.

        I know there are maybe two larger headphone-centric ones, I was a part of the one where they legit posted porn on one channel of all things, but I'd think SBAF is too full of old coots to bother with the shmancy new interface and all (I'm poking fun).

        Of course the Utopia will beast the HD600, but it's also cost $$$$. Real question is is the cost/performance worth it? That's only for you to decide.

        put me in the "not worth it" camp. Utopia is like eating the most delicious hot dog ever, but getting a bit of the tin foil wrapper in your mouth, without knowing why the most delicious hot dog tastes just a little tiny bit funny.

        Surely not MD as in Minidisc?

        In its day it was wonderful, both for commuting music and for making it possible to record cleanly without the awful hiss of cassette. I had a portable /and/ a full-size deck.

        Best part, some CD-players were compatible with normal CDs and mini-discs making it a pretty good digital medium at the time.

        If you work somewhere that could be a target that could be scary.

        I recall a couple of bomb-threat evacuations. We got out, but didn't take it seriously. Even in the days of London v IRA, who the hell is going to target a small, old-fashioned, family-firm greeting-card publisher!

        Well, I mean, if you pay retail for a DAVE you are a potato. However, yes you are still a dork regardless, but not in a bad way. I *loved* my DAVE whilst I owned it, and if I could still own one I would. Priorities within my set up made me go a different route, but, I still miss the DAVE :)
