  • As per title, when I summon a bbc radio station on my sonos I’m greeted with a grating jingle “bbc sounds, bumbum-bum”. The EQ/volume is fine the rest of the time, just this is particularly bassy. It’s like having someone jabbing me in the forehead saying “here’s f****** bbc a*******” through gritted teeth.

    Can I disable it somehow before I laun…[Read more]

    Yep – like outofbreath I always feel quite embarassed to admit it though. They’re good for getting to sleep when I’ve got too much rushing through my mind. I never really feel like I get a proper ASMR from them to be fair (I do from other interactions) but I just find them relaxing/distracting. Not sure why I’m sharing personal secrets on a public forum.

    But that wouldn’t have been a story – and maybe that’s the point.”

    Now that hope are about to release a Pro 2 Evo microspline free hub I’m thinking of upgrading my 2×10 to 1×12 (I’ve been holding out 1x until I can get shimano with a 500% range!).

    What does the hive mind think about chains? I’ve always opted to run SRAM chains (PC-991/1091) on shimano drivetrains for the powerlink and also because the plating…[Read more]

    I opened this thread imagining ‘OK Boomer’ to be a command issued to a new release of smart speaker.

    Human: ‘OK Boomer, what’s the weather going to be like today’

    Smart Speaker: ‘Oh I don’t know, what do experts know, they never get it right, probably cold and wet, I thought we we’re supposed to be having global warming. The problem with your…[Read more]
