I give you props for just attempting citrus on a roof deck in Boston.

Enjoy today because I think this weekend is going to get cooler.

Re: Physical Oceanography/Applied Physics

I love Google, it’s a crutch for tired memory. I knew there was a simple calc for dynamic pressure of water based on velocity. Very short form example is 69.5 psi is the dynamic pressure of water at 70 mph. So, if you jump out of a car on the freeway into a lake, you’ll see a pressure spike of 69.5...

Re: Dash Cams

My buddy has one mounted to his motorcycle helmet (maybe some kind of GoPro unit). I think it is designed to record a couple hours of video and then overwrite. The idea is to be able to record the events leading up to an accident I think. It is a pretty small unit, so certainly small enough to mount...

Re: Bernhardt font change!

What is interesting (at least for me) is Berhardt takes the time to modify the ETA2836-2 to function as a GMT (modify the day mechanism into a GMT hand), but doesn't take the time to address the date location.

Maybe they like the lack of symmetry or it just bothers me more than most?

Re: Alpina's Startimer Pilot Heritage Automatic GMT

I just picked up one of their older GMT’s (the one Brice owned) from a grey market dealer for a steal (about $550). I’m really looking forward to getting it as business travel watch. Yes, Alpina does do a cyclops, but they place the magnifier over the date window on the dial, not on the crystal. I t...

A better visual for what I'm thinking is (and please excuse my crap graphics - just trying to think about why this 4:20 date window seems to be so prominent): This date window will not work at 4 https://uniim1.shutterfly.com/ng/services/mediarender/THISLIFE/003000633909/media/104064661246/medium/15...

Re: Bernhardt font change!

This may be a dumb question, but is there a technical reason the date on this (and other) dials must be a 4:22 and not squarely centered with the 4:00 marker? If it were centered and the date window was chrome lined, it would visually take the place of the missing applied indice. Being a few minute...

I get leery on the idea someone would offer an alternative financial transaction service in order to get a discount.

The firewood is near field communication enabled. Just take the Nest thermostat, set it to the temperature you are most comfortable at, and place it on top of the burning log.

^^^ Agree with Nick.

Actually all those years of splitting and stacking firewood for my Dad when I was a kid has allowed me to appreciate my remote controlled gas fireplace.

Re: The Watch Steward elastic straps

Small update. I have worn this strap for two days. The hardware feels cheap, but it is a cheaply priced strap. The hardware is starting to stain or discolor. It does feel secure, but for some reason or another I do not like it. I really don't like this material either. It is different than the stan...

Re: Crafter Blue Releases Shogun Strap

I can tell the strap tapers towards the buckle, but haven't read anywhere as to what. Is it 20 or 18? I'm still curious as to why they didn't make it to use the fatties like the CB Sumo and MM straps will. Perhaps the strap isn't as thick at the lugs? Yes, it does taper. It is 20mm wide at the buck...

Measuring from strap tip to tip would give an artificially long number due to there being about 5 mm of extra material to ...
