Alex Carey 100 in 54 balls for Adelaide Strikers tonight, with 22 runs in one over. Great to watch.
Hmm, T20 hey? Well at least they've stopped picking players for the test team based on their BBL form .......

Re: Rant Thread !

I've disabled the fingerprint scan on my phone, as I find a 4 digit passcode quick enough. Pete, back on the previous topic (CPAP) - how do those masks go if you are a restless sleeper? I can't even stand wearing PJs to bed because I'd wake up feeling like I'm wearing a straightjacket, so I'm curio...

Re: Rant Thread !

So much serious ranting going on, here's a little "lite entertainment". I really have come to appreciate use g my phone instead of my card to "wave pay" - only I can use it (finger print authentication - credit card can be waved by anyone up to $100), and I don't need my wallet. After sanding a fai...

Re: Rant Thread !

To adjust the pressure they decided to hide it so us mortals can’t do it,but us bass players are not normal,it’s just a matter of pushing a couple of buttons in sequence ,well it was on my Resmed. I went menu-diving on my Phillips machine today and you're right, the menu I need to adjust the pressu...

I'll still go to the places that make good hot coffee over a crud place that offers a discount. hmmm, the discount thing doesn't fly. I sell coffee at my Ice Cream Shop, and the cups I use cos...

Re: Sterling Ray 34 help needed

A bad solder joint will do it. There could also be some shorting going on with that exposed wire not being insulated properly. I'd do it myself. All you have to do is apply some heat to the joint until the existing solder melts. As it does so, it'll invade any gaps and correct any iffy connection. T...

Re: Rant Thread !

My understanding is Resmed is a pretty standard model,I personally like the mask that only covers the nose,very small,no harder to set up than a programmable digital effects :banghead: a few of the settings are hidden but YouTube sorts that out quickly enough,you could be up and running by evening ...

Re: Rant Thread !

Oh I need it. The initial sleep test showed in 5 hours sleep, I woke up to breathe 36 times. That's every 12 mins. On top of that, there were another 44 episodes where I went from medium sleep to light sleep instead of deep sleep. There was absolutely zero REM sleep recorded. I did Cpap trials for t...

Re: Rant Thread !

Ok so now my sleep apnoea is so bad I'm a borderline narcoleptic..... who's daily commute is a 40 min drive most of which is at 100km/h. So this is obviously something that requires urgent attention right? I've done the sleep tests, the last of which was a CPAP trial on 5 Dec 17. Then all the sleep ...

Re: Any MTD owners out there?

I had a Kingston Heir 5 for a long time. Wonderful bass! I have so many nice things to say about it. In fact the reason I moved it on wasn't even a problem with the bass, rather a problem with me - my stupid small hands could never master the 19mm during spacing no matter how hard I tried.
