    Just recently taking pride in photos

    I've never considered myself much of a photographer but I've managed a couple of snaps recently that I really love. I'm only using an iPhone 6S whilst travelling but it's holding up really well. These pictures were taken shortly after sunrise at Angkor Wat in Cambodia. I did edit them, but only...

    Show us your mech mod!

    Just got my first mech and to say I'm happy with it is an understatement. This is what I've been searching for with vaping! Single 18650 A-MOD SMPL clone with a Freakshow RDA. Quad coil running at .2 ohms and the liquid is Vampire Vape Heisenberg, hence the funky blue colour. Bags of flavour...

    What's your go to build?

    I've been playing around a lot and I've hit on my favorite wattage/ohmage builds - dual coil around .3 ohm running at 100w. I've tried twisted kanthal and clapton coils and I think the claptons are winning.. less spitting and popping which is all good. Anyone else regularly vape at the 100w+...

    Drippers vs tanks - which do you prefer?

    For those of you who have tried both, which do you prefer? I ask because I started off with a tank and my tech tendencies immediately swerved me towards a drip atomiser. Having owned this thing for less than a week I can confidently state that I absolutely prefer the performance to an RDA -...

    Quadcopters, anyone?

    Is anyone else here into quadcopters? I accidentally got the bug from a tiny little quad earlier in the year and I just finished building my first real quad It's the Emax Nighthawk 250 full carbon kit with some added bells and whistles. Propellers arrive tomorrow so it'll have its maiden...

    I recently tried to get some chilli and garlic paste fermenting as I had an excess amount of Thai chillis to use up. Turns out that adding a bit of my sourdough culture to the paste did the trick and I now have a jar of bubbling chilli and garlic that smells like kimchi and has a definite sour...

    Is anyone else playing this? I've just started, so no spoilers please! Just felt the need to say that this game is relentlessly tough! :blink:

    Slow cooker/Crock pot questions

    A friend of mine just gave me a very old, but still functional, slow cooker crock pot type dealey. It has just an on switch and seems to maintain a temp between 70C-75C or 158F-167F, so I shan't be cooking chicken in it, but I figure it'll be good for pork or beef. I've never cooked using one...

    I have a Proraso problem.

    I've been working in Italy lately and this lot just fell right into my suitcase before I left. I've no idea how it happened, but someone saved me money in the long run! It all got a bit squished in the case, but there were no casualties. I wonder if it'll happen next time I'm there...

    Unusual slip joint - Maserin & De Nardo shotgun puller (pic heavy)

    I'm out in Milan at the moment for work, and today had a (well deserved) day off in which some colleagues and I found an antique market running along a canal. Of course, the knife nut in me went crazy searching for anything with a blade. I think I might've scored on this one! Sorry for the...

    Grill presses - anyone use 'em?

    These things are my new favourite kitchen tool. I picked up an iron griddle pan on sale around Christmas time and it came with a matching, very heavy grill press lid. The searing power is awesome and it makes one hell of a grilled cheese sandwich, but my favourite is boneless chicken thighs...

    Refried beans recipes - GO!

    I've become a little addicted to making refried beans and my go to recipe hasn't changed much - beef dripping, beef stock, black eyed beans, onions, garlic and some of my homemade Tex-Mex seasoning. Add some chopped coriander at the end and they're done. I keep meaning to try making them...

    Attention guitarists! Looking for a high gain amp head - recommendations please!

    I had an unfortunate incident occur in which some git stole my Mesa Boogie Solo 50 guitar head right before Christmas. Thankfully, however, it was insured :thumbup1: As such I'm now in the market for a new guitar head, price not being too much of an issue as the Mesa was insured for a decent...

    Chicken wings - what's your favourite recipe?

    Or maybe not necessarily your favourite, just one that's really freakin' delicious. I love chicken wings and they're so damned cheap, I'm trying to catalogue a few different recipes. Tonight I made some baked salt and pepper wings - 1/2 tsp black peppercorns 1/2 tsp white peppercorns 1/2 tsp...

    Extreme metal and electronica

    Just thought I'd share this for anyone who that title grabbed - It's probably the best blend of electronics and metal that I've ever heard. I'll just let the music do the talking

    Safe to use a gas stove without the burner cap?

    There's the question! I've just discovered the jet flame I can get when taking off the burner cap and it'd be perfect for wok cooking. I don't know why I've never tried that before, but is it safe? My gut says yes, but I thought I'd ask. Can't forsee anything setting on fire or exploding :laugh:

    Beef tendon

    So I just moved house and I'm taking full advantage of being within walking distance of city centre Chinese/Vietnamese/Japanese/Thai/Filipino/Japanese (I think that's all the nationalities...) shops. Just picked up some beef tendon and I'm wondering what to do with it. I know it's a relatively...
