  1. This isn’t true. He’s only the first man. Marta Vieira da Silva is the first person.
  2. We did boiled eggs in the air fryer. Obscenely easy. I think it was something like the bake setting at 120 degrees, for 14 minutes. Too long, the yolk was quite hard boiled but it went well. Need to just adjust the times but just very simple and I’m assuming more energy efficient.
  3. Sonic one had combat. Unless you never got past act 3 of green hill zone as a conscientious objector. The combat should have been made kind of similar, ie run and dodge and get the odd jump in. Everyone politely hovering in mid air to allow sonic to sonic boom repeatedly is a bit odd. it looks like a good game to me. Just not really a sonic game. Like some kind of fan mod.
  4. uh…normal? its not super deep. i think you’re limited by the bread anyway. They’re the same depth as I remember my parent’s 80s ones being but now I’m questioning my memory…
  5. We got given this for christmas: Salter EK2143FOUR XL 4-in-1 Snack Maker, Interchangeable Non-Stick Cooking Plates, Electric Omelette Cooker, Waffle Iron, Toastie Sandwich Toaster, 900W, Power/Ready Indicator Lights, Stainless Steel https://amzn.eu/d/4zqGkDE It’s got a ridged panini thing but it’s non stick and the ridges aren’t that deep, so it is not hard to clean at all. Thanks to the easily changeable plates, does toasties, omelettes and waffles so its kind of nifty. I don’t feel like it is a good choice for toast though. they all seem like they would be energy inefficient for that?
  6. I’m at the point where I think I have uncovered most of the map, and there’s not much more exploration to do. Probably lots of things I missed in areas I’ve done. Which is fine but I'm feeling a bit sad that the raw exploration is all but over. Because it‘s so good but also gives you a break from the gruelling dungeons and you can balance your own sense of pressure. I’ll probably want to try NG+ soon though because I’ve been a sword and board person. Next time I think I want to be a magic person burning everything to the ground.
  7. I think everyone said frequency was best. But amplitude was way better. Looked nicer. Better music. And it made sense being able to hammer left or right to go to one end or the other, I would overshoot more with an infinite circle more than I'd save time by being able to go either direction.
  8. Me too. It's such a tease, that post. Just 24 hours of not knowing what it is but knowing it's now ONLY TWO QUID has made it my most anticipated game of the year. The hype train is so strong. I have absolutely no idea what kind of game it is.
  9. We're very lucky to have it so locally. It's good for spices and dried things because it's local enough we can pop down to get just what we actually wanted for a recipe, rather than buying a kg. Its not particularly cheaper, mind. Because I guess it's also fancy organic stuff but also good quality and less waste for our own bins.
  10. Oh since the post I bought a six pack of those sauce bottles from Nisbets and let me tell you it was a great purchase. We have a refills shop down the road so I actually use one for showergel I can buy without wasting more single use plastic. But I also put different oils in and thryre great for finishing a salad or just going a little easier on oil when cooking. It's also great to fill them up with ingredients for dressing and to then add as you like on a salad. Or dollop mayo and tomato sauce for a quick Marie Rose sauce to keep in the fridge.
  11. With bacon though it doesn't technically have to be carcinogenic, right? It’s the nitrites that do it, and they are added just to prevent botulism? I think I read somewhere that if the pork is reared well, healthy, clean etc it doesn’t need that. Just salting it is ok. But you have to know what you’re getting. So in terms of cutting it down that's what I am hoping to do. Not necessarily being strict but just cutting down and trying to buy smarter. I wouldn't refuse anything in a nice restaurant though.
  12. On a more positive note. I remember when the dreamcast hype train was in full force... at least it was for me and my best friend. buying any magazine with new info. getting absolutely psyched for it. I remember waiting for about 40 minutes to download a 30 second postage stamp sized video of sonic adventure but still being wowed by the graphics. Then day wandering into the indie games shop to find that they had a Japanese import. live in the flesh. running Tokyo highway battle or whatever it was called. we'd hyped ourselves so much for this console that it was like spotting a celebrity or something, I was star struck. So I guess despite lots of stories of poor personal hygiene and petty theft, there could be something wonderful about a games shop and games discovery that has gone with high res YouTube videos
  13. I absolutely hate when games make it impossible to save whenever you need. I want all the challenge of the game to be in the gameplay, and not based around how long I can play in one single session for. By all means put some limiter on. I get that some pc games with quick save and quick reload keys basically meant you could cheese anything. Or get into a bad habit of only accepting perfect play. But I think being unable to suspend a game within reasonable limits is just design arrogance. It's a pastime not an actual job, and I have a life outside of it. Maybe it's dinner time or whatever, a game shouldn't be stressful because you're being rude to other real human beings by telling them you can't stop playing. It's not a deal breaker but, for example in something like yakuza like a dragon in the dungeons. Why not allow save? If you can achieve the same effect by hitting pause and leaving the game running for a week that's no different to allowing save points. It feels like old fashioned game design, you can throw back to old school rpgs without that part. Anyway. Xbox quick resume did fix this thankfully so this weird artificial difficulty gets overridden by the console itself. Back to the op I do feel like I can't play anything for too long at a time. But I often want to play a different kind of game to have a break rather than stop

    Coffee

    Pricey but square mile decaff is good. Really good. If its for two weeks, I'd say push the boat out! It's an espresso roast so should be comparable to whatever 5 means. I bought some when I got my new coffee machine so I could enjoy evening espresso, eg after a meal. https://shop.squaremilecoffee.com/products/decaf-espresso
  15. 2012 is the year I left Reading to live in London so I imagine that had something to do with it also
