Thought this was a proper fuckabout though two and a half weeks in I can see the attraction.

Am not quite Eric Baristo though am enjoying the challenge of making something drinkable. Might drag my old cheap version out when I get home.

It's the cleaning, I've got a bean to cup one, empty this, clean that, fill this, descale, it's also far too easy to press a button and get caffeine addicted 

I started getting bad stomach ache so cut it out, within a few days my body ached all over, somebody was drilling holes in my head, it was awful 

Caffeine is anti inflammatory

That's the same one I've got, it makes a great cup once once you get the hang of it. I had problems with the basket sealing, I changed the seal but it would still leak. I ended up packing the seal out with a circle of silicon. I think the head needs adjusted but if you watch youtube videos of stripdowns the insides seems to be stuffed with wires and pipes so I'm just leaving it be.

Battery powered LEDs, great stuff.  The little function selector box slots neatly into the coin cubby in the dash.  Obviously, don't drive around with them all flashing like that.

 I passed a bike test in 1978, it was a bloke in a brown flared suit watching me with a clipboard, ticking boxes as I rode round the block 

44 years on I'm fully licenced to kill myself on whichever 1000cc of death I like the look of

After Xmas , you could sell the control box to Liverpool council to run the city's traffic lights , it can't do any worse !!
