[@smileymiwo](/comment/6046863/redir): I haven't written with one, but the nib design and build materials/aesthetic are appealing to me....

Confirmed user error code ID101T. Thanks guys. All good.

[@justtoreply](/comment/6043484/redir): Understand your point of view. Don't wholly agree on all points but we're in 100% agreement on this...

Yep. They will not cannibalise their bricks and mortar or owned online stores for the sake of helping eBay. Rather than increase prices of...

Just signed up. Not seeing the offer.

[@GenghisGun](/comment/6041999/redir): I would consume a LOT less. Put simply, I couldn't afford to feed my primary addition (at the level...

[@cornbeef](/comment/6042113/redir): Good point! At least a few cents extra per cup right there!

[@berserkk](/comment/6041961/redir): No, we (me +1) spend ~$80 per week on coffee. That's for all the coffee made at home (per above) plus...

*You are paying for that beautiful SS look* ....and a sh*tload of thermal mass due to all the brass and steel :-)

Some quick maths for my own amusement: 7 * 365 * 10 = 25,550 shots /2 shots per cup = 12,775 cups of coffee 1kg beans $36.00 = ~42 doubles...

*my old quaha* A Quaha Napoletana was the first espresso machine I ever had a go at repairing. :-) Shares much of the same guts as the...

*Waiting 15 minutes to brew after steam and vice versa not not burn out the thing would be a pain for me.* Whoa! That would be a pain. But,...

At the ~$800 price point, my pick is still the Rancilio Silvia. Easy to use, built like a (small) tank, and lots of thermal mass connected...

They're defintely built to a price these days. That said, it's obviously a case of YMMV. I have a cheap and cheerful Sunbeam slow cooker....

[@TarquinOliverNimrod](/comment/6035908/redir): Nice with some basil and oregano, I'm told.
10/06/2018 - 12:03
If I genuinely believed there'd be enough interest, I'd give it a go but I accept that it's a very niche interest. I think the last time I...

[@mazuko](/comment/6035822/redir): No mate. You sous-vide the food you're cooking in sealed bags.

*"...you can stick the Anova in an Esky and cook a whole rack of ribs/brisket at once..."* This. If you need to cook for a large group of...

My pick would still be the ANOVA: - offers far more flexibility as you're not constrained to the 5L vessel size - easier to clean, maintain...

I'm surprised the Jinhao x750 hasn't become the "OzBargain Fountain Pen of Choice". Insanely cheap, lovely to write with and a good range...

Hehe! My Homosapiens 'Bronze Age' came from PoK. Had to get sent to VPens (importer/distributor) for sprung nib repair. They certainly...

The prize pen in my collection, a Platinum maki-e PIZ-600000 "Waterfall" was purchased from a shop called Itoya in Tokyo. There, you can...

*Just so that everyone is aware, Peter's sells counterfeit pens.* Do you have any proof of that claim? I would love to know more. As, I'm...

Bold prediction. With the release of the 'Xecuter SX Pro' for the Switch less than a fortnight away, demand for - and price of - these high...

Good deal! Not a huge fan of their entry-level nibs due to the level of feedback. You really have to pair this with a very wet ink such as...

"Jan is a crazy cheap time to go to nyc..." *AFTER* New Year's Eve, of course. The week before Christmas through to 2 January is...

Agree. VERY good prices for peak season. We flew with United around that time last year (depart 20Dec17, return 7Jan18) and found the...

If it was some sort of lifetime subscription, I would certainly consider it ;-) I am a bit partial to tempura.
