  1. No longer for sale cheers Nick
  2. Selling my Genuine Sage Bottomless portafilter (matches supplies Sage pf). This is 58mm and has been used with Sage Dual Boiler. Very good condition looking for £50 available from Cirencester area or can post by agreement. Cheers Nick
  3. Just wanted to give a shout out to Dan and the team at La Marzocco Home UK. Contacted them to find out cost/availability of a replacement reservoir for Linea Mini. Quickly came back to say that they would send me one free of charge, as well as details on installation and an offer of help if needed. Everything arrived yesterday as promised. I rarely leave reviews for things these days but this stood out as worthy of praise! thanks Dan!
  4. I once made the mistake of clicking YES when my laptop gave me the option of upgrading my Office to 2008. This was the first introduction of the Ribbon feature and basically meant that everything you knew had been changed and all the useful stuff removed completely. My foolhardiness in accepting was made worse by doing so the day before a big presentation was due (can't remember what it was now, but at time it was life or death!). What would normally have taken me 3-4 hours ended up being an all-nighter and I have vague recollections of driving back from the meeting on the M4 the following day
  5. well, I've tried. Gave it two weeks to see if I can get used to the peculiarities of MacWorld. In 30+ years of using computers I would say that for irritation level this ranks right up there with typing pages of text from Sinclair User magazine into my ZX81 only for the 16k ram pack to pick up the tremor from a fly hitting the window and reset everything. Nothing is where I want it to be. There is no sensible way of changing settings. The toolbar (or whatever Apple choose to call it) comes and goes seemingly at random and it is a bit like "whack the mole" in terms of getting
  6. Getting my own back. Just heading off to airport so might have to be quite noisy getting the car started!
  7. neighbours eh! Can't live with them, not allowed to bury them under their own patio! First nice day in a while, few family around for a BBQ and a small glass of wine, just relaxing on the patio and thinking of a bit of snooze. Right on cue, neighbour's stroppy teenage son decides he is going to mow their lawn... ...with a 2 stroke strimmer!! Seems he likes revving it more than actually using it. put up with the noise and exhaust fumes for 30 mins and then took some garden shears around to him with a clear indication that he should continue his labours with them or
  8. ooooo, I have been toying with the idea of one of these for a while. There might be a nice E8 Redspeed up for sale soon
  9. Joe Root's much younger brother
  10. Hahahaha to be fair it's not the worst thing I have ever read in the Telegraph, but I think Master Guy is just upset because his pocket money wouldn't stretch to a big boy drink
  11. This my worry! I do lots of data handling and statistical analysis work in Excel and R. Big data frames etc. Very used to Excel and how to shortcut - like Drewster I probably do this as easily as typing. Don't really want to end up with one laptop for travel and one for doing more desk based work. I can use an iPad for travelling if it comes to it. Oh well, I will give it a go and see what it's like. Thanks for the help all
  12. My new job entails frequent travel to far flung places (going to Norfolk tomorrow!). Having originally been given a brick of a Dell laptop I had a bit of a moan as the battery was only 3 hours (not much use on flight to San Francisco every other month!), and the bloody thing weighs a tonne (not great with a glass back!). "We will sort it" came the reply. True to their word I have just taken delivery of a new laptop. Only thing is - it's a MacBook!! Despite using an iPhone and iPad I have always been a PC/Windows user and have become familiar with the intrinsic foibles and s
  13. wow - Morph seems to have got in to some weird stuff
  14. Why risk the debilitating effect of RSI when you can automate? can't see anything that could go wrong with this idea
  15. Retention mystery solved Bill the Border personally licks any retained grinds from the machine between shots There is a danger that he will become wired and have to switch to decaf, in which case this grinder will only work for dfk. (NB. I believe this theory to be as accurate and valid as any other speculation without fact) Not a grinder for me (more than happy with E8), but it would suit the needs for plenty of folk out there so good luck to them
