    RECOMMENDATION: Audio system

    Klipsch Pro Media 2.1s??? You still haven't said a budget... what about passive speakers? There aren't a lot of options for "PC" audio these days.

    Star Trek Discovery s03e01... fingers crossed, but this season might not suck.

    Squadron's Single Player Story Line Released

    "No plans" for Star Wars: Squadrons DLC or extra modes, EA says. How/why did EA get the Star Wars licence? :mad:

    Squadron's Single Player Story Line Released

    Published reviews from gaming websites seem a lot more positive than Steam user reviews, which are only sixty-eight percent positive. Lots of complaints that the single player "story" is just another long form tutorial (as was the case in SW: BattleFront II), shallow power management system ...

    Rants etc.....

    Discounting manual grinders, which I know nothing about, $200 is no man's land... Too expensive for "consumer" grinders*, and not a large enough budget for prosumer/enthusiast grinders. * As I recall, the Encore is essentially an overpriced consumer grinder.

    Squadron's Single Player Story Line Released

    Really? That was the same "plot" from SW: Battlefront 2... rest of the review at https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2020/10/you-should-wait-for-a-patch-before-buying-eas-star-wars-squadrons-on-pc/ doesn't sound promising.

    Rants etc.....

    Yeah that site is pretty dubious. The Rancilio Rocky, which I own and use for drip/pour-over/French press, has not been recommended as an espresso grinder for maybe 10+ years. Totally, did not see that coming. :eek: Every grinder is different; there can even be differences amongst two...

    lets talk about small kitchen appliances

    Unless you want to make jerky, I am wondering if deer/moose might be too lean to smoke.

    Rants etc.....

    The best reviews come from places like www.home-barista.com, search the forums for individual models. Curated review articles are, I suspect, mostly marketing.

    Rants etc.....

    What sites you're reading? If we're talking about ones, nobody would even consider crap like cuisinart. On some of the sites low end grinders start @ 300 US. My two grinders, for instance, cost over 1k US. To coffee enthusiasts, consistency is the holly grail (especially when it comes to espresso).

    lets talk about small kitchen appliances

    Do you have a source for the right cuts of meat? I use to use mine a few times a month (year round), but, owing to the border closure, it's not getting much use at the moment. Nobody here even knows what a tri-tip is, etc, etc. That is 100% Trumpian bullshit!!! Yoder smokers are the gold...

    Facebook is also in the midst of a dispute with authorities in Australia over.... something, or other.

    Rants etc.....

    How do you fell about a manual grinder? As I recall, under $200 they're generally better "value"; especially the less coffee one drinks. Agree with the first part... And then you recommend the Baratza Encore. D'oh!!! If you increase the budget, a little, sswilson, you likely won't need to buy...

    Whats your latest purchase?

    You aren't alone. Benchmarks didn't alter my opinion; if anything the one review I skimmed made my sense of meh even more emphatic. Unless a compelling game comes out*, it could be another generation or two before I upgrade * As I recall from the review, the only game that brings a 1080 Ti to...

    how spicy do you like your food?

    Jalapenos are highly variable, the ones I grew this summer would be a zero (due to over-watering, I think). I have always liked spicy food (even as a kid). Living in hot climates is known to increase one's heat tolerance.... When I was in Texas I used to toss a handful of unseeded habaneros...
