  1. Collab with Lyle when? /s And RIP sponsors I guess.
  2. Thrustmaster Airbus Sidestick inspired controller, I use it with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.
  3. I replaced my case's rubber feet with small wooden IKEA legs from the BESTA series (M8 screw with M8 nut). My case is not on the floor but on my desk, but I still wanted my PSU to get better ventilation.
  4. Some people just like to impose their way of life on other people. That group happens to intersect with many other groups, including vegetarians/vegans. Sorry to hear about your experience, I hope it made not think you less of vegetarians/vegans in general.
  5. Nice drive although out of range of most consumers and small enterprises I guess. One question though: Was the drive name chosen by LMG's new social media coordinator? (Seems that could be a possibility...)
  6. Your microwave oven has a resonating chamber into which microwave radiation generated by a magnetron is being sent. Those waves then bounce off the chamber's wall. These walls are the walls of the interior of the microwave and the mesh in the door. The microwave oven's outer metal casing (part of which seems to be damaged in your case) is not made to protect against radiation but rather to house the components of the microwave (magnetron, high voltage transformer, large capacitor etc). Judging from the pictures you posted, you should be fine although you could still use a measurement devi
  7. I speak French (I am not a native speaker, but I went to a French school with a French curriculum) and I don't recognize anything that sounds like French in there. To me, it sounds like a mix of different accents found in the UK mixed with a bit of Vulcan (from Star Trek).
  8. That depends on the languages you are speaking. Der8auer has already been mentioned, he also makes English versions of his videos. I also like Igor's Lab, which is in German on youtube, but the (very detailed) articles on his website are also available in English.
  9. Probably Linus is trying to get that money back by selling those Live Laugh Liao shirts on lttstore.com... Honestly, considering that Intel sponsored this upgrade, the only thing that would have made it worse is if Dennis had asked for "Intel Ryzen", "Intel Threadripper" or something...
  10. The person most of the time living in the same apartment/house, which is something you are being reminded of every once in a while (during internet failures or blackouts) /s
  11. I also think this is a very large amount. While there are people who can tolerate a lot of caffeine, there are also those who cannot (at least not to that extent). I would recommend OP to watch out for signs of caffeine poisoning and when in doubt to ask a physician, just to be on the safe side.
  12. No, that shouldn't be the case at all. Are you sure you connected it to a proper ground? Otherwise there might be something wrong with the electrical wiring, in which case I wouldn't recommend using the strap. By the way, properly built straps have a large resistor built in that should protect you from harm even when connected to an improper ground, but don't count on it
  13. From my experience, milder roasts tend to have more acidity and less bitterness than darker roasts, so that along with possibly the weaker brews might explain why the second and third brews still taste fine. I once tried a dark roast that even tasted a bit like charcoal, so there is quite a large spectrum there. Just out of curiosity, do you like coffee because of the taste, because of its effects (caffeine), both? Do you drink black coffee or do you add milk? Milk tends to mask parts of the taste, that's why I always try an espresso when deciding which type of coffee beans to buy.
  14. I am using a different method of making coffee (portafilter) and I notice that coffee gets a very bitter taste in case of overextraction. That bitter taste also appears if already extracted coffee grains remained in the system since the last brewing cycle. As others have stated, I also think that you might be using so much coffee that the second and third extracts still are good. Just be careful not to leave coffee ground for too long after the first extraction as they might get moldy quite quickly (I have noticed it because I sometimes keep coffee grounds for later use as a plant fertilizer
