Wait till you see the url for experts exchange. At least until they decided to add a hyphen to clear things up.

Bunnings as well

Which restaurants make huge profits? First I've ever heard of that; the hospitality industry runs on wafer thin margins, and restaurants...

Consider bench space of inbuilt grinder vs separate grinder, but also that (in a combo unit) eventually the espresso machine will break and...

The internals are the same. The more expensive ones might have some bells and whistles (electronic controls, LCD, pressure gauge), a dual...

Not likely one that's still active, but she probably has friends who still teach so you could ask her to ask them.

Yeah, I'm waiting for the x-finity plus version; or maybe I should check Bunnings to see if Ryobi have made a pepper grinder

Hey, as a kid I played "ports of call" on the Amiga heaps. This was a shipping simulator. Where you had to run a shipping company. Kids...

I rarely even do that unless it looks really dull; after a while of use, the coating is pretty solid, and can easily stand up to song dish...

Mine says: "Please enter a quantity of 0 or less". Nice way to say "sold out"

The Breville duo temp pro can be had for around $250, and has the same internals as the higher end Breville machines. The Bambino is only...

It's a commercial product, designed to be in heavy use each day every day.

Altitude accuracy depends on how many satellites your phone is tracking, and where they are. With 3 satellites, you get no altitude, with 4...

You should check out Samsung - container ships, earthmoving equipment, fridges, phones, CPUs

Smokey cokey is a thing. Never tried it myself, but even Scottish distilleries are getting on the band wagon

True, though given you can get a (corded) cheapie rotary hammer for $80, I don't think it's worth getting a (fake) hammer drill (instead of...

Using a hammer drill to drill into masonry of next to useless; it's really slow and inaccurate. Don't bother. If you actually want to drill...

If, by scandal, you mean complete dumpster fire of a privacy leak, followed by cover-ups, and no-one being held accountable, and business...

A lot of laptops do this

Does every country have a different language?

Hammer drills like this (with a chuck) are next to useless; what you want is a rotary hammer that uses sds drill bits.

I regularly use both, and think Meet is even easier, but lacks many of the features of Zoom (which is part of why it's easier -there's...

The gauge isn't worth it (and apparently often inaccurate/broken). You can tell by the taste, crema and/or extraction time if your coffee...

Perhaps, since everyone's staying home, they're using their home internet connection, and mobile data usage has dropped markedly so mobile...

You will have a very interesting teaching round :) There's no inherent reason you couldn't do it remotely.

Regional will be mostly fine; it's rural and remote that's going to be challenging. Here's hoping they've considered it and are working on...
