Currently if I'm going to have a cup of joe, it's going to be done one of three ways - listed below starting with most often used.

  1. Keurig. It's super easy and there's a variety
  2. Aeropress. For when I want to spend a little extra time making amazing coffee
  3. French Press. For groups, or for a long day. I still need to perfect my French Press process.

So - what about you?

Definitely Once again, hooray for basic functionality

Editing and deleting posts should now be linked to on the actual posts

As Deridder pointed out - the functionality existed, so really all I had to do was add the buttons and do security checks

The robotics book is great. There's a store that sells a kit of things that you need for the book as well, which is a GREAT way to inexpensively start to mess with things.

Lonewolf - I'll take a better pic of my keyboard/mouse setup. It's been great for my wrists and arms.

Torino started this, and I figured I would post a couple of pictures. 

This is my main work desk Most of the servers that I work on are remote, and so it's pretty much just a normal computer setup, though nice and messy. In this picture I am just switching from my old desktop to using a surface pro 3 for most of my work. That way whether I'm at home or on the go, I can be working from the same computer.

 

This is my work environment at my in-laws place :p Tablet/laptop, mouse, and some coffee. Always coffee

Not nearly as exciting as large machinery, but I certainly enjoy it.

That one sounds like fun

I think there is an old ant simulator out there somewhere. Something like that would be fun too - being part of a larger colony.

My advice, don't avoid it. Just watch it. I would bet everyone else will have watched it too. It's a good anime, and one to not miss out on.

Posted In: Sub Par Sci Fi

This show is a perfect example of taking a nice sci fi idea, and just butchering it. I've been quite tired, recently, of sci fi shows that feel like they only get 50% of the way there.

You haven't seen Death Note? What are you waiting for? XD I think it's on most of the streaming services. GREAT anime!

I'll take a look at both of the recommendations and get back to you

It's always interesting to see how a book is going to start. "Happiness? Happiness... is to wake up, on a bright spring morning, after an exhausting first night spent with a beatiful... passionate.. multi-murderess." "... Shit, is that all?" I think I might already love this book Iain M. Banks writes great books, we'll see if this turns out to be another.

I'm always a little behind due to waiting on things to become available for streaming. Season 5 is now available on Amazon Instant Video! woot! I've watched it now, and wanted to know what others thought. MANY SPOILERS below. Obviously the biggest arc in season 5 was Will dying. I think without something this big, the season would have fallen on it's face. Alicia and Kerry moving into their own offices was fun, but the nearly immediate mention of a merger between the new firm firm and the old was rough. I enjoyed the stress on Alicia's marriage due to Will's death, as well as the NSA and reddit references. So - looking forward to season 6

Destiny is just about as hyped as any other game in recent history. I watched a bit of a live steam, and didn't come away impressed. Have any of you played it, and if so, what are your thoughts?

Are there other animes that scratch the same itch that Death Note does? I'm not quite ready to rewatch Death Note, but certainly wouldn't mind something along the same lines.
