Yup. Chemex and Melitta use the same pour-over drip system. Filter goes in the cone, grounds go in the filter, hot water poured over the grounds drips through into the carafe, and voila! Coffee.

I mean isn't that what my $20 Mr. Coffee does... I also have a reusable filter and the problem with it is the last cup of coffee in the pot is always on the muddy side.

With mine, I might get some grounds at the very bottom, but who empties out the very last drop into a cup? 🤣 I'll just stop pouring before I get to that point, which is only about a tablespoon left in the pot i.e. common sense. You're worried about not wasting a tablespoon of water so you buy disposable filters? Hmmm....

I just use a Mr Coffee (programmable) with a permanent/reusable coffee filter and it works great! Nothing fancy and not wasteful, and I can tee it up the night before to run when I get up in the morning. The perfect working-stiff's solution to coffee making

Reusable Filter
The problem I have with reusable filters is that they tend to get little bits of coffee in their pores and get clogged up.

I've never had that problem and have been doing it this way for years. Maybe that particular filter you had wasn't designed well. Mine never gets clogged and rinses out completely in 5 seconds

I'm also a big fan of Conan Exiles. I think they did a really good job sticking with it and patching it up after a rocky launch. It was the kind of game that was a bit refreshing because it was basically an mmorpg/survival hybrid. There should be more games like that because the formula works quite well (i.e. standard mmorpgs aren't much fun anymore)

I should go back through my BN comment history and see how I reacted. But whenever I start reading my old comments, it's like I'm reading comments from a completely different person 😂

The original series was the only one I liked. Everything from the Styrofoam space rocks to "beam me up, Scotty". It was all very well done! Everything after that got too serious and geeky for me

On a side note, I got Far Cry Primal for free somewhere and played a little bit of it and lost interest. I went back to it a few years later and loved it! I guess when you compare older games with new ones these days, even the not-so-great games are actually better. I had a lot of fun building up the population of my village! 😀

Although not a popular opinion, I have always said Far Cry Primal was the best of the entire series. There was more interesting things to do, exploration mattered, and the characters were more fleshed out.

I am burned out on the Ubisoft Formula. It infects every single game they publish. Watch_Dogs, AC and FC are all the same game, just with different skins. They've become stale and boring. Take, for example. AC:Origins. I love ancient Egypt. I've been on digs in my youth. I have artifacts proudly displayed in my home.

It bored me to tears. Everything about it was wrong.

So, at this point, unless I read reviews stating the FC6 is radically different from current AC and FC games, I have zero interest in playing it.

Yeah, I can see how the gameplay loop will get boring to some. I actually don’t mind the formula because there aren’t many open world games that have a better one. Also, co-op makes a big difference when compared to going it alone.

I really enjoyed Far Cry 5, but I typically play these games co-op, so the fun level just increases when you're exploring and blowing sh!t up with a friend. What I love about the tech in these games is how seamless the co-op is. Just join a friend's game (or accept invite) and you're in. Ubisoft really nails that kind of seamlessness where other devs seem to struggle to get it right. The way to play these games is to minimize vehicle usage and just travel on foot (and put difficulty on higher than normal). You find so many cool things that you wouldn't have if you've driven a vehicle everywhere, including side quests that can be way more entertaining than the main quest. I'm definitely looking forward to this one!

And done.

... For now

Edit: Just checked the modification, it'll also block you to your current Windows version ( Like say 20H2 ).
Shitty block.

21H1 has been causing endless amount of issues at my workplace so i've locked in 20H2 for everyone...for now. With critical/security updates still forcibly installed within days.

Will revise again in 6-12 months.

Looks like Windows 10 EOL isn't until October 14th, 2025 so hopefully Windows 11 doesn't suck by then.

And i can't see why anyone would want HDR. I have it on my Sony Master OLED TV and it makes my eyes bleed even at low brightness levels. If i wanted to see bright lights and endless glare i'd go out midday and stare at the sun. Then again, that could just be my astigmatism talking

Yeah, I never knew what all the hype was about around HDR. I find it quite annoying when enabled in games (and I don't use it on my tv either). In fact, I purposely turn down contrast so that I can see everything and don't miss anything hidden in the shadows. The range of luminosity is just too intense for my eyes when HDR is enabled

This headstone says it all.
The epitaph says "beloved son, brother, and uncle," over the dates of birth and death and an engraved portrait of Kyle. Near the bottom, chiseled in the same formal font as everything else, is a blunt message for the public, and for posterity: F--K COVID-19.
Actual stone had uc in place of --.

People only believe what they want to believe these days. The fake news that has spread over social media for the past 10 years has made everyone skeptical about everything. i.e. If it didn't happen to them, then it's probably fake. If I can't see earth from outer space, then it's probably flat (photos are fake, data is fake). The same has been happening with climate change. We know that the ice age ended thousands of years ago, and geologists have been gathering climate related data for years, and even with all that data, people won't believe it's real. This guy spells it out quite clearly (definitely worth watching when you have the time), and even with all that, you see a guy at the end of the lecture denying the data without any science backing him up. Doh! https://youtu.be/xgNxF2HlN3w

While this trailer is pretty meh, I'm not sure I see the "woke" aspect. There doesn't seem to be any ideological aspect to this trailer at all. Its just a bunch of dorks doing criminal shit?
