Re: How much time does dishwasher save you?

... This cuts both ways. With a machine, one needs to add the cost of owning enough dishware to fill it. (Same with laundry machines btw ... and this is why I used to own 14 t-shirts whereas now I own 7, Stahlmann :mrgreen: ). Conversely, when handwashing it makes sense to limit the amount of dishw...

Well, I made a mistake. I meant it looks like moldiness. I doesn't smell. Or I'm just overreactive, but it bugs me a little bit. I'll provide photos tomorrow.

Thoughts on consumer electronics/gadgets/home appliances/planned obsolence

Hello, I am looking for durable headphones. They need support bluetooth technology. I know jacob's post on quality HP set, but I'm aiming at REAL portability/durability ratio, because producers very often claim that their is good for jogging, but it breaks after month during "mobile" usage. Buying q...

Re: Durable shoes

I think I polished them with some pasted, which guaranteed semi-level of water-proff.
I will try get oils mentioned in your post and review them :P

Re: How much time does dishwasher save you?

I also heard that reasoning in many places (especially in "corporate success literature"), but I tend to disagree. There is optimal time you can spend on projects (=more money) in work (if you have that possibility at first place). I assume that most people are tired enough after 8h (at least...) of...

Re: How to live out of a suitcase & pack one efficiently?

It seems that I have some minor skin issues after shaving with razor left at the open space (which was used only 2-3 times). I'm not a medical professional but shaving with a random community razor seems like a really bad idea due to the possibility of blood borne infection. I buy a bag of the chea...

Re: Durable shoes

I now suffer from some kind of skin desquamation of my foot. Good news is that it isn't itchy. It started after 10 days I used my gear like Jesus. Unfortunately I wasn't able to float on puddles. OK, more seriously it's almost impossible not to get wet after walking 30 minutes plus in rainy, mountai...

Re: Backpacing/hitchhiking in South-East Europe

Thanks for people who replied. I thought it would spark more attention, because camping is somehow ERE friendly. I also realized that most of the presented gear is in range of 100-300$. Even if we speak about whole pack, it could be only 1k $. So not so much for many for you in West EU or US. I will...

Your workstation for working/using PC/reading (ergonomics)

I know I could read norms about ergonomics and so on, but I am more interested in how you have solved this problem in your life (or just get personal insight). I assume that many of you work as white collars. If not, you pursue intellectual pursuits on your own, so you can also contribute. I am espe...

Re: How to compute shipping costs when selling clothes on eBay

Heh, I rather upgraded my "Heterosexual Men's Fashion" wardrobe to something more stylish using bidding sites and thrift stores. After some consideration, I don't need some of it and it's difficult to get rid of some. And it's more connected that I'm not so advanced in ERE, so it's better I'd be mor...

I own one like this: http://beaninstitute.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Pressure-Cooker.jpg (I call it old time pressure cooker) It isn't made of steel (probably).
