The perfect cup of tea Ameture Englishman 12/08/13(Mon)11:28 No. 1410 Board: /class/ [Reply]

I was wondering how to create the "perfect" cup of tea, such as how much sugar, milk, water and the order of how to do such.
I shall try every suggestion I get.

Lapsang Soushong is the most excellent blend, if you can get your rolex-encrusted paws on it. I typically add a dash of cream and perhaps grenadine whilst slowly drawing from a Romeo y Julieta cuban. Perfect with Sinatra, a suit, and a lady that you are trying to woo.

Surely you jest.

Anyway, to answer OP's question, the perfect cup of tea is a fine Assam brewed in 90~95C water for 1:15~1:30, then mostly strained with the last bit of tea discarded.

The idea is to not ruin the tea with excessive tannins (the substance that causes the bitter dryness you feel when you eat an unripened persimon). Brewing for too long or at too high a tempurature will produce that tannin. Excessive pressure will also squeeze out tannin acid, so the last bit of tea in the pot will have a lot of it.

If you do it right, you will get the fine tea flavor without the bitter tannic feeling. If you do it perfectly with good Assam leaves, your tea will taste faintly of honey all on its own.

I agree with the milk first idea. You definitely end up with more of a tea flavour than the slightly tangy boiled milk flavour you get if you put hot water straight onto the milk.

The reason milk-in-second has become a generally accepted way of doing things (despite it producing an inferior brew) is because people tend to brew the tea in the mug rather than in a teapot, the proper way.

Obviously enough then, putting milk in before hot water would mean a tea-bag soaked in cold milk which is a massive no no.

I do mine in a teapot, three minutes, milk in first. Comes out lovely.

I felt very sleepy about ten minutes ago and was very close to going straight to bed to make the most out of my sleepy state. I decided to brush my teeth first and now I am completely awake. This isn't the first time this happened. Why do I have to choose between clean teeth and a quality night's sleep?

perhaps brush your teeth in the morning, then lightly brush them throughout the day?

John Smith 18/10/09(Tue)18:41 No. 46713

clean teeth is important don't sweat it

John Smith 18/10/11(Thu)12:13 No. 46714


I've been thinking, perhaps it is the minty freshness of the toothpaste. This is advantageous in the morning, but being so refreshed before bed may be making it hard for me to relax.

I was told to make a new thread.
I want to make my own cipher machine, like the Enimga.
What language will be better for this?
I want something like this: http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~andlaw/engindex.htm
A simple graphic interface where one imputs the setting, encode and decode.

I am assuming you are new.

There are boundless options for you; as >>4579 said.

That being said, I would try out OCaml, it is really neat and it has quite a nice gtk wrapper.

It is considered a functional language, akin to Lisp and Haskell, and if you have already got used to imperative languages: C, Java etc, it might be tough to start out, but don't get discouraged. You can overcome anything with a bit of practice.

Good luck!

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 14/09/14(Sun)01:53 No. 4584

I have no previews experience in programming.
Can I jump straight to OCaml or should I learn something else beforehand?

Neckbearded Basement Dweller 15/09/21(Mon)21:16 No. 4806

You may already know, but just a warning, your shit will be incredibly easy to break no matter how ridiculously obscure you make it.

Substitution ciphers and all the rest of the pre-modern era cryptography is really cool, but horribly insecure these days. If you care about that (which really, try not to, this is a cool project), then look up all you can about DES (now outdated), AES (DES' replacement), and public key cryptography.

Hello. I have an idea I want to try out. I need multiple VM's for my work. So I thought I could a packed mini pc like Gigabyte Brix Pro to host the VM's, on, for example, Qubes, and using gigabit connection to my laptop utilize the laptop as something like a remote desktop.
Direct gigabit connection should in theory be more than enough for VNC. Is there any better solution to achieve such functionality?

Better Idea: A freaking server!
set up a server at home as a host for your vms. remote in or even live boot from work.

Long story short I might be getting an internship for a company in London, England over the Christmas holidays. I'm more in it for the work experience and resume than the money, but it's only a two-week placement and I've got to get there from Toronto. How can I do this without losing hundreds of dollars?

Guys, I'm the storyteller on a Mage campaign that start yesterday and my stories are usually quite random. I usually invent facts and events right in the heat of the moment and the stories are crazy and fun (but with a lot of action and mystery). To improve this random factor, I would like you to suggest events or strange things that I could implement in the game. What happened so far:
> The session ended with the car in free fall at ten thousand meters high; a burning driver (who is a clone of one of the characters), a white powder floating inside the car, fresh fish smashed inside the vehicle, $ 10,000 that is leaving through the glove box and a monkey is holding a pistol whose bullets can never be traced.

What comes next? It does not have to make sense. Then I try to find a way to connect all events.

Anonymous 17/10/24(Tue)11:11 No. 131022

OP here. How things have come to this:

> Characters have discovered copies of themselves (clones);
> Someone is killing the clones (another clone that is a clone killer manipulated by an obscure religion);
> Technocracy is interested in the clones, but in a conflict a Man in Black was killed and left a briefcase: inside the case was a sleeping monkey and a pistol;
> All clones have a serious genetic fault that will lead to death: the monkey has a genetic sequence that needs to be synthesized to get the genetic fault corrected;
> The pistol in the suitcase can be used to kill people or animals, but the murderer will never be arrested for the crime (and the bullets are never tracked);
> A clone of one of the characters appears with a car so they can escape;
> Inside the car there are 5 kilos of fresh fish and 4 kilos of a white powder (the clone says that the fish and the powder are important, but that will explain later). In the glove holder there are ten thousand dollars in 50's notes (nobody knows where the money came from);
> The car breaks the veil to the umbra during the escape, and to try to escape the driver (a clone) realizes a magic, that fails mizeravelmente and the car appears to ten thousand meters of height, in free fall;
> The paradox sets fire to the driver;

so, you have no chapter 2 or endgame? try this: the characters "think" they are clones, convinced by men in black, to get them to use monkey to find cure. they backtrack to the mad scientist lab where they find their own clones, and discover they are themselves REAL, but made part of an experiment from long ago, which is what originally triggered their awakenings. whatever teacher they had early on is part of the cabal to make the clones, in an attempt to split the magic of the heroes into fragments, creating clone magicks armies for an upcoming assault in other realms against the technocracy. Have men in black trace monkey to first lab for either giant battle, or a chaos screen the heroes can escape in. Oh, and since the car is already involved on a mage level, with an intelligent monkey, have a lever allow the car to fly, and the monkey have low level mind effects, like telepathy, to get its thoughts across.

My pick is Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist. It used to air on Comedy Central back in the 90's and I rarely hear about it today. It was where I first discovered offbeat humor. What series do you think is underrated?

Greetings /class/
I wasn't sure where the best place to ask for this was, but I figured this was the best fit.

I'm looking for good ambient music similar to the one in this link http://youtu.be/zUBk_w_oZmU?t=14m8s (the episode itself is unrelated.) If anyone knows of anything similar or instances where they have heard something similar, it would be a nice thing to share.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/08/08(Thu)06:30 No. 2471

It sounds like what you are looking for is quite specific. Some sort of lounge jazz with ambient influences. Hopefully this is what you're looking for.
