I went out this morning to spend the vouchers I got for my birthday. I had decided to use them on a Time Capsule to make backing up my new Mac easy.

While I was out I checked to see if the Mac had arrived in stock. I ordered it as a BTO about 3 weeks ago and was told it was due this week.



My first Mac. Late 2012 Mac Mini with i7 2.6 and Fusion Drive. I have 16Gb of third party RAM here to install in it too.

Guess what I am doing today?

A new portafilter...very heavy, about 1/3 pound heavier than most top of the line commercial portafilters. This improves heat stability...and it looks cool as hell.

Also, a Strada 58mm filter basket. The new, hot topic is reducing variability between shots (holding all other variables constant) by using an improved filter basket with optical scanning quality control. The basket holes are scanned and the QC is to one micron tolerance.

Think maybe this has gone just a tiny bit too far!!??

But doesn't it require much more pre-heating? It's harder to warm it up compared to a regular portafilter then. Sort of defeats the purpose I think. I could be wrong though.

My machine has about a 20 minute warm up time, but I always give it 30 minutes to be sure that it stabilizes the heat in all parts...including the portafilter. I haven't received the new portafilter yet...will get it today. But I'm assuming that the 30 minute warm up should be good. Also, there are times I just leave the machine turned on, especially if I'm planning to pull a double shot within an hour to two, so no problem there.

I'm not sure if the extra weight of the portafilter adds much more time to warm up...but it should retain it's heat with greater stability.

There is one more possibility...the whole thing is obsessive b**sh**!!! But fun...

I would rather have a NEC Spectraview 301 if money was no object. Better conformity across the panel and colour accuracy.

Ravpower xrobot 6000 mah power bank. Got this yesterday in the mail. Charges my phone on the go. Was thinking to use this for trips only but turns out i use it just about everyday. Love that I don't got to bring an extra cord like my other power bank. Doesn't have a lightning cord though, only 30pin. Wish they made this with a higher capacity and might get something over 10000mah from them. Took a risk on this and I'm very pleased.

When I called Dell this morning I was told it EOL (end of life). The guy said the new U2913WM (which has a silly 21:9 aspect ratio) is pretty much its replacement.

The NEC is a lot more expensive (and I cant even find anyone selling them in NZ).

still got a good discount and I've been eying it for a while. Hopefully other manufacturers start making quality 30" IPS monitors, its one of very few out there.

I realise it's more expensive, but I did say if money was no object. Also it was in relation to the Dell being the best 30" out there comment!
