This?

Essentially. That's functionally the same and very nearly the same design. Mine's a Swissmar Borner, which apparently is the same one recommended by America's Test Kitchen. But mine is old and is missing one of the julienne plates and a thickness plate that I see listed with new ones. I don't know if mine just didn't come with them when it was new, or if my dad lost them before he moved out and left it behind when I bought his house.

Wow! I won my fantasy football match up last night!  I had Pittsburgh's Def & was down around 10 to 15 pts vs my opponent having Ju Ju Schuster (Pitts main WR), I won by 8 pts. D scored 19, WR was 1 pt......:huh:

 

I came out of the game store after dnd & was like jeesh, how the hel..did I pull that off.

 

I paid $20 for a sportsball pool thing, and so far I haven't won anything yet. I'd be happy if I just made the money back. But at the same time it was $20 that I found on the ground one night at work, so I can't complain if I do lose it all.

Mine's a compromise of the 2.  It's plastic but has 8 double sided blades and allows some stacking.  I can do waffle fries but I have to remember to turn the potatoe 90 degrees each stroke

  I think mine cost 50 USD but that was over a decade ago

 

All of them make you rotate the potato to get the waffle cut as far as I know. You just use the wavy cutter to cut one way, then the other, and boom you've got a waffle cut for the second slice and all subsequent slices that you continue rotating for. But I don't even have the option of a wavy cut.

(Turntables help quite a bit with this effect, as does reducing the rate at which you heat the food.)

 

Mine has a turntable. 

I repositioned the plate once, part way through zapping, in case being on the edge of the turntable versus the Center is significant.

Do they note moisture content on the packaging?  Different water content would affect the energy absorption rate, I'd expect.

Slices the same dimensions?

Orientation the same on a rotating plate microwave

I don’t know. 

Slices were ragged but close. 

See answer to Doug’s comment.

I passed up the opportunity to acquire a crock pot today. Someone had moved out and left their crock pot in the apartment's foyer. I left it there. I mean, it was the tiniest crock pot I'd ever seen, one of those 2 cup models. It might have been big enough to braise a 2 inch section of short rib. A pot of stew made with one red potato, maybe? Fondue for one? Enough chili for one chili dog!

 

Too smol.

 

I think that's a potpourri crock pot. The idea is you stuff it full of flowers, orange rinds, cinnamon sticks, etc... Add water. And then turn it on to stink up your place. I know they used to include them for free in new crockpots across several different brands. I too may have left one sitting in an apartment after moving out.

Aren't they also marketed as "sauce warmer" pots?

Rumbling around the house is that I should start a 5e game. Kinda regretting not paying attention to releases the past few years, as they have seemingly listened to my advice and made the books adventures foremost. 

 

I like adventure modules. I do not much care for endless splatbooks.

 

I don't know if I'm good enough to run a game though :(

Then you'll be generally happy with what they've done. I highly recommend Storm King's Thunder, and Ghosts of Saltmarsh is a solid sandbox with adventures sprinkled around it. 

 

Skip Hoard of the Dragon Queen.  It's just a bad one... 

 

COFFEE!!

Could be. I'm guessing that's likely the original reason for tiny crock pots. Or something similar. But you know, inject a healthy dose of marketing and boom... potpourri pot.

Guess which one I do have...<_<

 

Saltmarsh does call to me, as does that one with the some of the old modules adapted. Now if they'd only go back to the old school Erol Otus artwork...

:lol:

They tend to go on sale on Amazon pretty regularly. You can usually find them for $25-30 if you're willing to wait. 

 

Is it Kickstarter time yet?

I can't help with gurps but if you tell me the weapon I can give you the ranges from the mongoose edition or the calculation from v5....

Thank you Rex, but I got it figured out. For some reason they had the ranges listed in two columns. 1/2d and Max. I figured it out by look at the 9mm, I believe, it is early and do not have my full amount of coffee on board yet, anywho, the 9mm are the same between the basic set book and the Traveller book. There are a few things I can not figure out from the third, but there is no matching stat in 4th, so I figure I can safely drop them. I can always add it in later if I need to. 

 

I hope everyone is getting there coffee and are doing their finger exercises, I would not want anyone's fingers to cramp up on the up coming marathon.

Today for homecoming is 'Holiday' find attached the youngest boys attempt at humor. The bag he had has candy canes to be passed out, which his father,(me in case you were wondering), had to purchase.......... In SEPTEMBER, from work. God's I hate corporate America.... Bloody Christmas in September......

      Congratulations, by opening this forum post, you have received a quest!
      This quest is a challenge created by the combined forces of @Sirithiliel the Queen Tiamacrab, a Wizard Most Wild @Pezler the Polychromatic, and myself – @Cyradis the Questgiver.
      The challenge is this! Paint a small dragon, letting the dice control the colors!
      The Rules:
      Post in the WIP Forums “_Your Pseudonym_ is taking the random rainbow dragon challenge!” or “_Your Pseudonym_ has accepted the d20 rainbow dragon quest!” something to that extent.

      Select a figure from one of the following: Stormwing (from Bones III), Kryphrixis (from Bones III), Deathsleet (77110), or Ebonwrath (77102).

      You must select the dragon BEFORE rolling for colors. Take a photo with the figure and a clock as proof of order of operations.  
      Roll for colors! Use a d20 and a photo, or an online dice roller with a screenshot as proof of rolling. Or have a fellow forum dweller vouch for your rolls. Use the Color Chart below to determine what the color is that you rolled. There are three rolls. Below is an online dice roller. Most keyboards have a PRT SCRN button that can take a screenshot for you. Then you can paste the photo into Paint to save. I'm sure there are better methods, but that works for me. 

      https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm

      The first roll determines what your primary base color is. That must be the dominant color on the figure.

      The second roll determines your secondary color. It should be the second color that catches the eye, and second most prevalent color on the figure.

      The third roll determines your miscellaneous color. This should be most of the accent colors that you use, and third most prevalent color on the figure.

      You might need to order paint or go to the FLGS after rolling if you don’t have a given bottle – we’ll be patient and wait for you. If you can’t get a bottle of one of these colors, here is a spreadsheet with equivalent colors from different brands. If you really can't get them, use the closest thing you got to your rolls (let us know what they are please).

      Pure White
      Super white. Critical threat!
       
      You are allowed to use whatever colors to shade and highlight that you want, as long as the rolled colors are obvious visually.* Example: you can shade a red dragon with purple, brown, or black, but it must always appear as a red dragon. A white dragon shaded with grey must appear as a white dragon, not a grey dragon.   
      You are allowed to use colors outside the ones that you rolled, but they must not take up more visual surface area than any of the others.** Example: your pink, green, and gray dragon is allowed to have bone-beige teeth.  
      The proportions of color on the figure can be however you want, as long as the 1st roll is dominant, 2nd is less, 3rd is less, and anything else smaller. Example: 70% pink, 15% green, 10% gray, and 5% anything else. Or it could be 50% pink, 25% green, 15% grey, and 10% anything else. The tidbit colors are fine wherever, as long as they are minor. 
        Paint your dragon according to the rolls plus your tidbits. Even if it is outrageous. The goal is to make the dragon look as awesome as possible without the benefit of planning color themes. You can add spots, stripes, eye-spots like moths have, or nothing. This is the base challenge. 
        Star 1* You may decide after your initial three rolls to limit your shading colors to your rolled colors mixed with pure black and white. You may still use tidbit colors. Declare this if you go for a Star 1 challenge!
        Star 2** You may decide after your initial three rolls to not use colors outside of your rolled ones and shading colors (so no tidbits like beige teeth, only 3 visual colors shaded however you want). Declare this if you go for a Star 2 challenge!
        Star 3*** You may decide to do both the Star 1 and Star 2 challenges, using absolutely nothing but your three rolled colors, plus black and white for shading. If you do this, you are allowed to use the white for areas like teeth and eyes that could be really weird otherwise (or not - up to you). Effectively, you have 5 colors to work with only, and three of them must be the majority (in decreasing order of prevalence). You gotta be nuts!
        There is no time limit on this. However, if the WIP photos stop showing up at a normal rate and there’s never a Show Off thread, the forum dwellers may gently poke fun at you for adding this to your Shelf of Shame.
        Post to the Show Off forums with a “_Your Pseudonym_ has completed the random rainbow dragon challenge!” sort of title upon completion. Brag about your awesome (or hilarious) dragon. Win all the internet-points. Receive experience and praise. Thus shall end the quest.
        Once the first Random Rainbow Dragon has been completed, we will start up a group Show Off thread to compile all of the dragons in a great flock of rainbowy goodness.

    • By WhiteWulfe
      After seeing my first thread on it (I think it was @Glitterwolf's thread for such an honour) my first thought was pretty much "that looks like a LOT of fun", followed closely by "but I've never painted anything other than a few Space Marines!".  Yeah, well, challenge accepted, because I kind of fell in love with how Ebonwrath looks.
       
      Yup, I'm going into this technically with very little skill in painting, but while I'm waiting for Ebonwrath (and some gnolls and paint, gnolls are the honour guard for the paint, I swear) I'll have both of the learn to paint kits to work through, and assuming everything pans out (aka assuming I filled out my Canada Post FlexDelivery stuff correctly) I'll be picking those up after work today, and then about a week and a half (ish) later Ebonwrath will be in.  Seems like a semi-insane thing to do, dive right into painting a dragon when you originally were getting paints to steadily work on your WH40k Catachans army (and Skaven, sooooo many Skaven o_O ), but I figure why not have fun with life.  Besides, what better to put all the new skills the LTPK's are designed to help you get a baseline grasp on than a gigantic dragon of cuddles DOOOOOOOM that, in my eyes at least, can be bribed with cookies.
       
      Some say I'm insane, I say to be a good delivery driver you need just enough insanity...  Not enough to pass the entrance exams, but enough to be perfectly fine wearing shorts in -5C weather.  :P
       
      Anyways, onto the rolls!
       
       

      I wound up rolling 14, 19, and 3....  So Terran Khaki as the main, Pure Black as the secondary colour, and Lava Orange as a highlight.  Well now, that's an interesting mix in my eyes.  I'm not quite certain as to how this mix will pan out, but on the flipside I chose to dive into this headfirst, so I'm also going to give it a whirl as a full on three star challenge.  I'm actually kind of liking the sound of these colours, as I've had a number of different design possibilities come to mind already!
       

      Obviously, given the current promo and Rictus seeming like a nice and dedicated, honourable skeleton, I had to get a few other items into the cart for free shipping (plus a free skeleton!), and for someone to keep the gnolls in check while Ebonwrath is napping away in it's blister pack.  Can't let the gnolls steal the cookies after all.  Pure Black is included in one of the Learn To Paint Kits, so I didn't add it into the order from Reaper.
       
      Here's hoping I won't have to make too too much room in my gaming area to work on Ebonwrath ^_^;;;;; (since it's still another two months before I can get a dedicated miniatures area set up, but man am I looking forward to such!)
       
       
      EDIT (Jan 7th @ 15:44 MST): Totally forgot to add this in...  For additional information regarding the rainbow dragon challenge, here's the main thread for it!
      (end edit)

      Link to original challenge: 
      I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379
      So I'm painting that. 
       
      Die roll, 13, 18, 2.  Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red.   Good colors.  I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate. 
       
      Baby needs a bath first.

      So I decided to do this random dragon challenge thing.
       
      My rolls.

      Main 20 9039 Pure White
      Secondary 6 9227 Brilliant green
      Miscellaneous 10 9023 Imperial Purple
       
      And my intent is to do the 3 star challenge, I was planning this before rolling.  Interesting colors, I have the pure white but not the other two.
       
      The arrival of Deathsleet with his Halloweeny reinforcements, and the missing two paints.

       
      And here he is ready for the paint.

       
      I started with giving him a primer of brilliant green cut with 2-3 times as much pure white.

      Stuck my thumb in the box of unpainted bones and pulled out a Kyphryxis.
       

       
      must unbag bag and dry fit, trim mold lines and scrub, but first, the random colors...
       

       
      15, ah what could that mean?  I'll look later.  Let's roll another.
       

       
      seven!  Good.  Nicely spaced numbers.  Will look it up in a minute.  For the third roll...  Well darn gotta wait for the full minute so the time shown is different...  Finally!
       

       
      oof!  One!  Critical miss.  Well, it's probably a boring color at the top of the table.  Let's see what this means:
       
      15: mint green
      7: olive green
      1: fire red 
       
      huh.  Whadaya know.  Time to go see what I've got for colors... (To be continued)
