      I had a Braun tube toaster, the cleaning lady shook the life out of it............ to get the crumbs out.

        A tube toaster? Assume the usual jokes made!

        Seriously, I was baffled, but after gixxerwimp's post, I get the idea.

        Every toaster I've owned opened on the bottom to avoid the shaking thing.

        Only cheap one, but mine has a drawer. Maybe most of toasters I have known did

        Anyway, I am very sorry for the loss of Bixby's toaster.

      Is there a dirt cheap USB C dongle f/Android equal or improvement over LG ThinQ G7? My headphone jack is getting a bit too loose.

        I am considering the Apple. Worried that it might not have enough power to drive my budget Sony MH755, the LG does when I trick it into high power mode. I'll check out the Helm as well.

        FWIW Apple dongle works well enough with headphones. Looked up measurements and the voicing of the Sony might not be flattering to the dongle though.

        Apparently the Apple for USB C is volume deficient, as are the Google and Samsung? Probably looking for 90 or so mW @32 ohm.

        Maybe they can come up with a new bad name every year, then abandon it 2 games into the season and go back to Football Team.

        I don't think they reveal the new name until early Feb... but I guess someone could have leaked it to see what the reaction is. Personally, I'd go with the current WFT, because I'm sure a lot of their fans go WTF WFT?!?! after their games.

        I read something about Viagra possibly being a helpful thing for Covid due to increased blood flow in the lungs? They supposedly use it for other things also? Sounds kinda....hard to do studies on.

      Quote of the Day from an Anti-Vax acquaintance "Covid is no big deal, I was only in the hospital for three days." Uh....Moron!

        Ahh, the moronic extrapolation from sample of one self <bangs head on wall>

        Actually, covid has been no big deal for the vast majority of sufferers, who didn't even need to go to a hospital. And it's also killed a lot of people.

        But hey, y'all know all this: just venting at the anti-vaxer

      Ending Qobuz trial, odd stutter when new a track begins & tons of CPU hogging on Windows. Too bad since, the mobile app is decent.

        Qobuz is best with an UPnP Interface or Roon. Qobuz desktop apps IMO leave a lot to be desired.

        I've had some stutter issues w/ Qobuz this week as well... wonder if it had anything to do with all the AWS hiccups. Otherwise, what YMO said - Qobuz is best experienced outside of the Qobuz' app.

        Have to agree with others. Qobuz+Roon=digital music bliss. Either service without the other just doesn't feel complete. I just used the Qobuz windows app for the first time in forever this morning and it is better than it used to be, but I also had a couple hiccups.
