That's what I have. Still does everything I want so I'll use it until I run it into the ground.


Same. Not all of us are Rich Uncle Pennybags and the 10 is still perfectly cromulent.

Finally got a refund from Stubhub. Said it would take up to 120 days and they took every single day plus a couple extra days for bank processing.

I signed up for it and posted my photos and copied link, Then I pasted link between the Img tags. Previewed and still see nothing but the link. So the photos need to be a certain size?

You're not gonna post the link that Imgur generates. Instead you're going to right click on the image, and select Copy Image Address (that's for Chrome, but there's something similar in every browser). Paste that URL between the image tags here. You'll have done it right if the URL ends with an image format like .jpg, .gif, or .png.

Instead of this link: https://imgur.com/SIlCA5t/

You need the link to the actual .jpg or .png between the img tags: https://i.imgur.com/SIlCA5t.png

So you can right click on the image and "Copy image location" or "Open image in new tab" to get that URL.

Okay, so this is the opposite of a donut, but...

Does anyone have a "smart" home treadmill or bike? I've been loosely interested in them for a while, but didn't want to spend Peloton money really and also didn't know about the alternatives.

I'm a light runner (~15mi/week in warm months), but do not run outside in cool months (exercise asthma) nor do I go to a gym or have a treadmill today. I'm also not the biggest treadmill fan, but think I could maybe get into it if I had a giant screen with someone encouraging me or with a good view to immerse me.

Conversely, I am not a biker, but mostly I think just because I always feel like I am on the verge of dying biking outside (cars). I actually think I'm more prone to bike inside vs run, but not totally sure, as I've never had either.

I've gotten interested in this deal from ProForm where you buy 3 years of their subscription service (iFit) and you get the bike or treadmill for free. Which is, by far, the best deal available in this market. The issue with the treadmill is that the screen is barely bigger than your phone; I don't have an issue with the bike (screen is iPad-sized) per se, but I'm wondering if it's better to just bite the bullet and get something better if you're going to do it. Granted, I don't know if something IS better. I just don't know.

What I do know is that, I think especially with the pandemic and us taking lockdown seriously for a variety of reasons, I'm more interested that ever in getting some serious home gym equipment.

So long story short, finally - anyone have any opinions on smart home gym equipment?

Anyone got a good drip coffee maker? I think Starbucks tastes fine and I like southern butter pecan creamer so I’m a real basic bitch when it comes to coffee. Have been doing the French Press thing but it’s so labor intensive. And sometimes I want to drink 3-4 cups instead of just 2.

They're so cheap now and there really isn't much to them. Pick one online with good reviews and call it good.


If you get a grinder and find yourself some good beans, your coffee life will change forever.

I've had pour over coffee makers like a Kalita Wave, an aero-press, the expensive do-it-all machines, and now I use a four cup Mr. Coffee I got for $24 on Amazon. It works fine and makes perfectly enjoyable coffee if I buy the grounds or beans I like.

Before you Euro bitches come in, I've had coffee up and down Italy. I drank it from a different place every morning for two weeks in Paris. Your **** ain't nothing to write home about.

Nah, we are not gonna mock you unless you say that you drink "coffee" with half a liter of vegan milk, adding 4 spoons of sugar and cinnamon/chocolate powder on top :P

None judges other people based on his coffee type or machine of preference :)

Well, actually- you don't have to worry about Euro bitches coming after you, it's Aussie wankers that are the true "well, actually" coffee snobs you have to worry about.

Yup. We have a 12 cup Mr. Coffee. Buy grounds at ikea. Drink 3 cups a day. It’s perfectly “fine”.

My favorite fancy device was a Moka Pot which made a pretty good cup with minimal effort

I'm still working my way through cold-brew, but I'm planning to fire up the espresso maker once I finish these last couple batches.

I've had the small Mr. Coffee machines before - the 4-cup one worked wonderfully when I used to have drip coffee on a regular basis.
