  1. Nice pair of jugs, courtesy of Coffee Hit ([email protected] for the heads up)
  2. For when you're stuck in traffic between your work machine and your home machine??

    Coffee Hit be Quick

    Cheers. Couple of milk jugs ordered. Anyone else who's looking, the link is to page 2 of the sale, and enough has gone that it's all on page 1. Still some bargains to be had

    New Phone?

    It depends if you desperately need high-end, or if you're willing to take a bit of a spec hit for a massive cost saving. If you're going high-end, Samsung are at the top, after that OnePlus tend to be the guys to beat, because they usually manage to have really good specs without the massive price tag. The Pixel 4 looks lovely too, but it's well out of my price range for a disposable accessory (which I still consider a phone to be, albeit a necessary one for my job). If you're happy to go for a mid-range phone, Motorola haven't put a foot wrong in years with their G series. Consistently at the top of recommendations, reasonably good support and updates, and some brand value (we'll gloss over how many times they've changed hands in the last decade). Alternatively the Pixel 3a is a solid mid-range, as is the Moto One. I haven't got any personal experience with the Huawei P20 which a lot of people seem to have, and like. They're caught in the middle of the ongoing US-China trade war, which has some implications for whether they'll continue to have access to the Google Play Store (like the App Store) - I don't think the P30 line comes with it installed. There are workarounds, but if you're coming from iOS, I imagine convoluted side-loading of apps is not the experience you're looking for.

    It's ants here. I'm convinced they're systematically building a network of tunnels out there and one day I'll come home to find they've nicked off with the entire garage.
  6. possibly being held in place by either gunked up old coffee, or due to the metal surround being cold? In either case, the answer is "carefully" 😁 Found this: (the channel style is annoying but the content is sometimes useful) which suggests the screen you've currently got is designed for pods. There's an upgrade kit with a dispersion plate and a mesh screen designed for fresh grounds.

    Forum Rants

    Sometimes it feels like they happen every week
  8. Arrived yesterday, thanks. Already helping me reduce my intake [emoji106]
  9. Sorry, my neighbour has her heart set on a mains fed machine now, having played with my Wega. I did suggest just running a faucet up above the tank, but she didn't go for it. Hope you shift it.
  10. @Planter would you take £20 for it?
  11. Thanks for the explanation[mention=17678]Hasi[/mention]. [mention=15256]MildredM[/mention] I'm surprised you haven't upgraded yours to a newer model yet! Maybe there are some custom features you can't do without? Or is there just not much demand on the resale market? [emoji56]
  12. Wifey not postie, but we've been seeing friends in west Oxfordshire this week, and the local roastery is not to be sneezed at! [emoji106]
  13. One of the Dog and Hat suppliers a couple of months back had compostable bags. Thought that was a nice compromise between sustainability and convenience
