> it is interesting how people with bad voltage use electric kettles rather than stove-top ones (assuming they wouldn't have the same issue?)

i'd say it's still probably an order of magnitude faster than stovetop, at least, but i grew up with a stovetop kettle. i think that's more or less the norm here.

@joeyh well this sure didn't take long to reach its logical end state.

@nuala @ifixcoinops we do own an (electric) kettle, and use it constantly, but i didn't have the habit before spending time in UK & new zealand. i am appropriately jealous of voltage elsewhere.

the coffee equipment... well, apparatus just tends to accumulate around here. also both of my sisters are baristas and it was a theme of holiday & birthday gifting for some years.

@vortex_egg inquiries extended.

for whatever it's worth, i use sqlitebrowser.org/ for some stuff and it's handy for what it is.

@vortex_egg there's some macos thing that a lot of db people i know are into, but maybe what you want is a code notebook sorta thing?

@ifixcoinops @nuala we don't just have one special coffee device; we have (pause for counting)

- drip coffee maker (it was my grandma's, can't bring myself to get rid of it, use it like twice a year)
- cold-brew coffee maker with a little filter bucket
- 2 forms of pourover filter holder for the little #2 paper filters
- aeropress
- 2 forms of french press
- old-school shiny metal percolator that you plug in
- stovetop percolator
- campfire type percolator
- stovetop espresso thing

@phooky @SuricrasiaOnline i used to have this situation where if somebody saw me and was like "hey jesus!" i knew i'd met them in a latin class.

@mindspillage today i got pretty excited about planning some new shelves

@ehashman what is _happening_ over there, one wonders

(well, one pretty much knows)

@morganth i think it was just a product they were using, but they promoted it pretty heavily for a bit there.

@scruss (sorry, that was a bit much. anyway, yes, i agree. a more reasonable society would probably decide to stop.)
