Re: Who is obsessive about their coffee??

If you are talking delonghi, I assume you are looking at an automatic machine? Personally I would be looking at a manual machine if you are looking for excellent coffee. Starting point for me would be the sunbeam twin thermo block EM7000 or what ever the current model is, or the Breville twin boile...

Re: Cricket 2017/2018

A lot of top order batsmen get a rough deal, eg Alex Doolan, Joe Burns (were' they really not up to it?) and Khawaja has been mucked around more than most. I hope Renshaw comes back - he hit a bad form slump at just the wrong time.

Re: Who is obsessive about their coffee??

Not quite obsessive but getting there. I sold my my cheap home espresso machine in a garage sale so have been making do with an aldi pod machine (the thing won't die s I can't replace it!) and old-school plunger.

Re: Countdown

Very Interesting to see Ed Kuepper playing bass with the Saints in '84 in last night's episode. I assumed he and Bailey didn't have anything to do with each other after the original line-up finished.

Re: How to start

I thought I might give this a bump with my own experiences. After quite a while of false starts., time-wasting and dead-end playing opportunities on gumtree, I stumbled on open mic nights as another alternative (I'd always thought of them as being more for singer/songwriters). I went to one at a loc...

Re: Countdown

Sting's fretless Musician bass was a highlight for me last night (even if he barely played it :p )

Re: Countdown

I watched tonight and noticed that too. 78 was a little before my time (I was 4) but it's always fun to see what was going on then. It occurred to me Marc Hunter was an earlier Michael Hutchence

Re: power cord for Fender rumble 500 v3

Cool, thanks guys. Electronics was never really my thing. Seemed too easy to be able to just get a generic one and be done with it!

I figure it's just a standard 'jug plug' but can anyone tel me if you can get genuine Fender replacement amp cords? I'e had a look online but can only find generic ones. I'd hate to ...
