1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Chemex + grinder + kettle. Grinder and kettle are from Hario. The kettle pours with more control than any others out there - it's the standard at better coffee shops. This setup makes the best home coffee I've been able to do (and much better than most coffee shops) and costs around $100 total.

    Waiter-style bottle opener.

    Great, if you could find one properly engineered and crafted.

    Looks like something that would be highly useful if one had, say, a sailboat with lots of topside teak, or if one wanted to do his own work on the bottom job (no edmorel).

    That's what kids are for. [​IMG] A RO sander Like a Festool Rotex has more general applicability, but when you want to remove a lot of material fast- this is the baby.

    now THERE'S something that gets the job done. the bottle's pretty cool too!



    Agreed, Im a huge fan of Hendricks, although its not always the easiest to find in a store or a bar. Another really nice alternative is Reisetbauer Blue Gin, which is probably even harder to come across though.

    As for pens, in my mind you cant beat the Uniball Gel RT Micro. It is a SUPER smooth writing pen if you like a very fine tip, it is .38mm.

    Ever since picking up a Pulltex at my local wine store, I have thrown every other corkscrew out.
