When is good to pick up the baked goods?


Uhm, that's cheating, as I take it you're not actually doing the anger management class? :p

Oh, goodness me, NO! I didn't mean I'd MARRY you! Just trade all my angst and anger and man hat'ing. You know. For the DIAMOND. Not the MAN. Though I'm sure you would have been a very worthy catch, of course.

What good is a diamond anyhow? It's just a piece of hard carbon...
Wouldn't a man be more useful around the house? You know, you could like make him do stuff...? :D

First up we have something that needs a good clean and that's my trusty old oven
Image
It's rather large and hasn't let me down so far, it's good enough for a large loaf of bread.
It's not well insulated, but it gets too hot in my opinion as I also have to use a lower temperature when I cook in it than the recipe calls for. The heat is a bit uneven though, so forget about soufflés :D
However, as I haven't been able to find any oven cleaner here, it's a bit dirty.
It comes with a rack, a pan and I can throw in another couple of "modified" pans that just about fits.

I also have a still plastic wrapped printer which is an Epson C110 that I don't know if it works or not, but it should do as it's brand new. I have no idea if it comes with any bits or not.

If anyone still got an old computer, or some DDR memory, then I have a couple of mATX motherboards (not sure if they work) and an AMD FX-53 processor for socket-939 (the old type) which fits either board. As I don't have any RAM for it and with DDR memory being expensive

these days, I never got around to setting it up. At least one of the motherboards have integrated graphics, both have PCI Express slots if I remember right.

Not really sure what I'd swap for though, but if anyone has something useful :D



Did you mean "rusty" old one? :wink: :whistle:

That's not rust, that's heat damage, as the door wasn't insulated. Over two years of usage caused that...
No-one wanted it in the end, so it ended up being recycled...

Hey, I was just thinking of this thread.

We bought a house and move in later this month. The place has a clothes washer that my wife says is just 2 years old, but we don't need it since we have a washer that we'll bring with us (ours is bigger). I forget the brand name and size, but it looks like a perfectly good machine. I'll go over there tonight and test it. Assuming it works properly, which I believe to be the case, would anyone trade a working TV for it? Of course I don't expect a giant plasma TV, but anything workable would do.

I have a working TV sans remote. A replacement washing machine would do me fine.

Oh shite. Just checked. The wife chucked it out. :oops:

Would you consider giving up a bottle of scotch? Image

Sure, I'll do an anger management class. Where do I sign up?
Pity about the oven, it would have been great for someone new to the island. I need to pay closer attention to this thread.
