    Yeah we make the McRib sauce for all of the west coast. Went to our meat facility in the midwest where they make the McRib patties, honestly the meat looked good. No pink slime or weird stuff. Just looked like chuck steak level meat but was fresh. This was an unannounced visit as I was there working on something. Anything with quarter pounder meat is good now also. The small patties, well those are old milk cows from what I was told. McRib sauce is actually made up to 2 months before the promotion and yes If I sell you something, might smell like a McRib or McChicken.

    "Saga S is back!

    New product announcement tomorrow."


    too bad, they didn't just scrap Saga S in favor of a Saga 2..... and I presume the new product is Loki Max... or maybe Tyr..

    Loki Max EQ is out - HF "Schiit Happened" chapter here.

    This thing appears to be a beast. I want one, of course. Any chance for a loaner?

    Seeing the insides I already know it's worth the price

    6 channels of relay based stepped attenuation as well as motorized pots. Also inductors for bass EQ instead of gyrators.

    The relay based attenuation isn't just for overkill but if you are going fully balanced you can't have any channel imbalance. Potentiometers are just way too inaccurate no matter how expensive.

    I like how they used a 1980s Celestion SL6 speaker, and the cables are a bit... incomplete.

    I had people being confused over my talk about fast fun. To help people understand YMO-speak since only four of you nerds were able to figure it out. Here's how I speak in my language on fast fud:

    Chick-Fil-A Speak

    Jesus: Chick-Fil-A Sandwich or went to Chick-Fil-A to order any fud
    Jesus with blessins: Chick-Fil-A Spicy Sandwich
    Jesus with fixins: Chick-Fil-A Deluxe Sandwich
    Jesus with blessins 'n fixes: Chick-Fil-A Spicy Deluxe Sandwich
    Jesus Water: Sweet Tea
    Healthy Jesus: Any Sandwich without Fries for a side
    Blessed thy: Sweet Lemonade
    Sinner: Any Diet Drink with no sugar
    Amen: Two servings of Jesus in one day.

    Whataburger Speak:

    Whatajesus: Whataburger
    John 3:16: Triple Whataburger loaded with extras toppings (extra onions, extra lettuce, extra tomato, three cheese slices, extra mustard)
    Jesus Water: Sweet Tea
    Sinner: Ordering a Whataburger salad
    Disciples: Whataburger Jrs
    Holy Sunday: Doing the John 3:16 above on a Sunday Morning

    @Azimuth might need to correct my slang for a bit.

    Also Bo for Bojangles does have good Jesus Water, but the food haven't been blessed by the holy one himself.

    Sweet tea is kind of like the American southern holy water, but sure. I always feel blessed when drinking sweet tea. Jesus Water works too if it is from Chick-fil-A.

    Holy water works as well, but I was close in calling lemonade Jesus Water.

    You can do a Google translate on this page to see McD's offerings in Taiwan. Mostly kinda meh in execution, though their fries are still the best (if you ask for no salt, they're hotter and fresher).

    Some of it looks interesting/different enough to want to try, but if I am ever able to get to Taiwan again, I'm not sure I would waste stomach space on McDonald's. Soooo much good food available.

    McD's should be pretty much bottom of the list, fo sho :cool:

    I prefer Burger King (how do they fake that grilled taste?), but sadly the one near us closed down recently. My wife gets the occasional McD's hankering, and their delivery service is pretty handy (they have their own scooter fleet from pre pandemic times). We forgot to specify "no salt" on the fries last time. So they put extra ... had to wipe it off with kitchen towels.

    McD killed the shakes in TW, period.

    Def would go for BK, which is much more innovative. They came out with a "chocolate whopper" a couple months ago (not that it would appeal to everyone, but at least they try).

    With all the discussion about quality USB transmitters - I've been digging for details about Urd's "digital hub" feature (Unison out) - but no luck.

    Anyone know where to look? If not, @schiit - any chance you could comment?

    Urd is still in development. Latest news was in this video from a few weeks ago (around 36:00).

    The best McDonalds chicken burger is still the McSpicy. IMO the only McD burger I'd eat.
