    Regarding death rates, Sweden hace had problems with Covid entering elderly homes and that has been quite problematic + we have seen quite a few structural problems that we have to adress. And of course, the treatment methods improves over time. I think the death rates in Sweden right now is...

    We have soft water. There hasn't been any maintenance in the last 47 years that I know of, but perhaps we should? I just read the red warning sign at the bottom of the picture, that the safety valve needs some care now and then to prevent the heater from blowing up. Perhaps I should read up a...

    It has, I guess they had another view on quality back then. We will see hoe long it lasts, most of our neighbours heaters have passed away. Proof, it got signed off on march 30, 1965: :)

    Coronavirus

    It is kind of good news I guess, but important to keep the rates down so you do not overload the healthcare system. I work with BI in the healthcare these days and heard that the treatment is quite nasty for both the staff and the patients even if we still have plenty of beds left in our small...

    Here is a fresh climate report from the US government. https://nca2018.globalchange.gov It's not a very comforting read, but at least it seems like they understand the problem now. That's a good start.

    Audio Equipment

    There"s no shortcut to the perfect sound ;) The basic function is to get great sound, if you can't get that, every other function is a waste. But it looks like it actually has balanced XLR outputs? Unfortunately I can't afford one myself. :(

    The Glasnost was happening back in 1985, maybe that is the reason for the difference? Don't you have a atomic clock in the vicinity you can use as a time server?

    Hmm, I just realised how much I miss the sound from the actuators on my old Seagate Cheetah 15K.3, when they were hammering down the bytes on the disk. That was almost better feedback than a LED.

    HOT

    "Hot" is +25C or more for me. :) I prefer temperatures between +15 and +22 in the summer. This year has been very warm and dry and this week has been "hot" with +30 a few days in a row. We have A/C, but it's made and used for heating, and I haven't had to use it for cooling yet. But it's always...

    Happy Holidays (2017)

    In december we have the sunrise around 9.40 and sunset 14.20. It's a bit boring for a few months when it's dark both when you go to work in the morning and when you leave work in the evening.

    I agree. But I didn't know what it was, or the percentage, before I tasted it. I didn't see anything unusual. It was more like a normal herb liquor.

    Yes, it actually tasted a bit worse than cough medicine. :) I don't know exactly how this batch was born, but seems like a real hassle to make proper Absinth yourself, according to Wikipedia. It was interesting to try, but it's not a new favourite if I put it that way.

    You need to drink quite a few bottles of whisky at once before you reach lethal levels. But it's probably not good for your health, like most alcoholic beverages.

    What is PDE? But phenol levels is used to describe the amount of peat. I think a normal peaty whisky like Laphroaig has about 45 ppm and Ardbeg around 55 ppm, that is quite nice. 309 ppm is probably more of an aquired taste.
