I typically use a fine grind and a bit of tamp on the coffee grinds so that it requires pressure to push down the coffee, somewhat more like espresso. I really like the results.
I found that by getting a metal filter and tamping a fine espresso grind down I can use far less coffee and get a very good cup, thought it takes a bit of elbow grease to push it down. I've also found the metal filter to be even easier to clean:
- run the cap and filter under the sink after pressing out coffee while press cap still attached to clean the filter and cap and to mostly separate the metal filter from the grinds
- remove the cap and metal filter. Rinse, leaving the filter inside the cap and set it aside to dry
- dump the grinds
- rinse the pump and separate, and set aside
I love the aeropress.
It's worth noting that the "notorious idiots" choices significantly impact the rest of us. Shared resources such as health care and energy are among the things I support as eligible for regulation. For those things that do not affect others I would vehemently oppose such an imposition, and give each the opportunity to make whatever decision they like, including long, painful death.
Slashdot is a community that's been so vociferously anti-Microsoft because of the anti-competitive behavior and vendor lock in since its inception. I'm still perplexed why so many of us are readily promoting the Terminator 2 version of Microsoft to negate a few support visits for mom (that honestly, you shouldn't have had to make if you'd set her machine up properly).
Who needs prosecutors with advocates like you?
No critique of your experience, but I recommend keepass. It's the only sane way to manage the the discrepant password mandates and change requirements across the bazillions of accounts I manage. Segment the passwords into different keystores if it suites you better.
How the hell is declaring something that is subjectively (and I would argue, generally) true dehumanizing? Especially statements that happen to be backed up by research, for instance, which sex is more charitable.
I wonder, would you defend men in the same way as you just did women, or is that a bit of gender role hypocrisy coming out?
Fair enough, I should say licensed. My point is that we "engineers" complain about lack of respect, lack of competency, etc, but don't seem to be embracing an established framework for accountability and credibility.
Are you certified as an engineer? Until we decide to start making the term mean something, it's empty talk. I'm gearing up to take the certification myself next year.
I would expect the editors to filter out what appears to be factually wrong summary and gratuitous speculation according to camembert's comment, or at least find a second opinion. I know, I must be new here, but crying-wolf articles such as these curb my page views dramatically.
I didn't realize I was so unlettered, your British spelling threw me. Still looks wrong. Throw some idioms in there early next time so we yanks can grok.
While I believe you had an insightful comment, your spelling errors were making me wince so I had to stop reading. Please get a spellchecker, they're so very useful.
I'm not afraid of people with guns, just as I'm not afraid of terrorists. You are afraid of people with guns, and that's part of the problem. Man up, Pete, liberty is a good thing.
Unfortunately, trickle down doesn't seem to be working either, so what other ideas have you got?
You're mixing your metaphors. You can't eat your carcass and pillage it too.
