  1. Let me guess..... Plastic one made when cars built in UK .....New one when BMW bought Rover?
  2. Thought some might like to read this from Lewis at Crankhouse: https://www.crankhousecoffee.co.uk/blogs/news/from-budget-to-boutique-a-particle-distribution-love-story
  3. Went to a christening yesterday. Instead of holy water the priest poured a can of lager on the child’s head. Apparently the baby had been Fostered
  4. The best part about these threads is we keep seeing these pics of re-worked parts that won't be seen but they still get the treatment just the same
  5. I think you need to take the troublesome one to India.... I saw this headline and thought of you: Could it be that yours is the car for them?
  6. It IS big but you can make it prettier and if it is in good order internally you will enjoy the tastes it brings to the table
  7. OK so choosing both and contrasting colours should work on any theme This done on dark is still not too bright but very obvious and is clear on light roast I guess I need to get used to non industry standard icons on this platform Too many years seeing this I suppose
  8. "Brazilian" coffee would be OK though wouldn't it?
  9. I am not sure how you did that but yes. The advantage of course is that, because the background colour is fixed and Presumably the text colour works on that background, it will not matter whether the post is on light or dark theme as it will always be easily legible
  10. I would suggest that it be set at dark but lets think about the reasoning and see if I have it right. The scenario where someone decides to highlight text or where that happens automatically might be done using different coloured text. Think about which colours would be used on each In an ideal world, next to the paintbrush on the toobar would be a paintbrush denoting text background colour and we could go back to a text symbol for the text colour. In this case it would be the background that performs the highlight and the normal forum software text colour remains regardless of theme The effect might be similar to what is seen when I write @Tait but more accentuated
  11. Do you remember when you could mouse over someone's name without getting the screen half covered with details I used to have to click to see Aye, them were the days EDIT: Then there was the time you wanted to like or thank and it was there on screen not hidden under an Icon, which bears no relation to either. Why do we need extra levels of menu to find what we need? Now then @MildredM you did that on purpose..... You got me started again and I was trying to be so good
  12. That fine gentleman @johnealey was kind enough to send me some Guji Highland beans roasted by his own fair hand. What can I tell you? YUM!! The man has skills That blueberry note is not at all hidden and pushes through milk Very easily. I added a half spoon or so of sugar and the flavour exploded. Interesting too was the fact that they neither ground nor poured like a bean of that longer roasting date than I normally use. John, If you feel you have too many of these greens..... Roast 'em up and send them and I will be happy to cross your palm with silver. I am glad it is the weekend..... I get a chance to play a little with these through the day
