Four years ago, I decided to convert my Rancilio Rocky coffee grinder by removing the espresso doser and making a doserless chute. Rancilio makes a chute, but I didn’t like the design. I can report that I’ve been using my grinder with this chute for a few years now, and it’s excellent.
I found out the hard way that the Yamaha THR10 guitar amp has a fragile power plug. Mine fell off a table, the cord yanked, and the power plug shattered. My favorite travel amp was dead.
A reader sent me a question:
I’m a semi-retired freelancing graphic designer, currently using a desktop HP Pavilion P6-2114 with an Intel processor (i3-2120), Intel HD Graphics 2000 with an Nvidia graphics card (GeForce GT520). I work in Photoshop 3D and it’s really slow, with only 8G of RAM. Any suggestions to make that app run smoother and faster? Can an AMD product be put in this tower? WHICH ONE? Most bang for a small buck on a budget? or would just more RAM help? Thanks!
Wild, weird, and smells like a mixture of dust, cattle and spray paint. We had a fun time. Somewhere under layers of paint, our names are there.
