KEN 24T

The Off Topic Thread.

They had a Tuck Shop at Aidans high school -

 

He was the only kid (of the 4) that refused to use it and demanded a packed lunch - even on "Hangover Mondays"

 

Many a 7am run to the supermarket to buy bread and a bottle of V (for me)

We had the water fountains that had the round knob on the end

 

There was always that one kid that'd mouth the knob instead of drinking from the stream

Yeah our bread baking has gone right up since school started. We've had to buy a few loaves from the shop so it's time to step up our game! Now that I've worked out the slicer it's actually super easy to do...although I almost threw it in the bin to start with.

You got one of the ones with the slats cut into it?

Ah - sweet - have one (similar) - never thought to try it with bread.

 

This is the one I use - usually go double thickness coz "sandwich slices" suck:

I haven't used mine for anything else yet. At the current rate of bread making it'll pay for itself in about 18 months so here's to hoping it lasts a bit longer than that!

 

How much mess does the manual one make? One of the reasons I went with electric was because I got fed up with how much mess a knife made cutting by hand.

Tried out mode 3 on the dsc/tcs today. It spins the front in 2nd, but only once when the intercooler gets too hot. Wooooo :launch:

I use it on the big chopping board - the mess stays on the board so I just wipe it down or dust it off into the bin.

 

The slicer is used for meat, so wouldn't want to mix/match.

 

Wouldn't want to use the slicer on a "Hangover Monday" - those things can bite if not 100% and I like keeping my skin

I know how much machines don't give a flying fark about people and their extremities. I make sure I've had at least 3 beers before I use mine so I'm more comfortable with it.:pandalol:

YT premium + GP music is worth the $10 or so a month just for the YT portion haha, even if the GP music sucks a bit.

 

bilomusic for Spotify is the way to go if you want a music streaming service that works everywhere and is as cheap as it gets for the "no ads" version. :) If you don't mind the Spotify ads, then just get the free Spotify.

Google music family FTW

 

 

Gets rid of Youtube adds, gives me the music (both mine and everyone else's, plus decent recommendations/library), Youtube Red, and gives me 5? invites for family and friends to use the account legit.

 

 

I've got Apple Music Match - the one where you upload your crap 98k ripped MP3's, and Apple gives you back proper 320k AAC files of the song (I had 4GB of music - Apple made it legit and better quality for me :) ) 

 

 

Tidal if you want the best quality - FLAC recordings (but the selection is not the greatest)

 

 

I'd go spotify if all you want is music - Google Play Music for that and also easier Youtube.

 

 

 

 

edit - have got 2 invites left - PM me an email and I'll invite you to my account

yeah, the family google one is very good value, especially if you use YT a lot.

 

but for just music for a single account, bilomusic to Spotify, as I said above.

That's what I've done for my troop.

 

Have one invite left if anyone (who uses android/PC) wants to hit me up for it.

 

As long as you use the same email for Youtube and on the phone it's awesome

 

 

edit: am going to go for @k31th's bilomusic as well - $20? for a year of spotify https://bilomusic.com/
