I'm that snarky, sometimes cranky YouTube person who told you about how dishwashers work.
I post many things which should not be taken too seriously (on account of the cranky snark thing). If you think I'm mad at you, I'm almost certainly not!

If you've been watching my videos for a while, you may have noticed this Silvertone radio in the set. It's an AM/FM set from 1952.
I restored it when I was in high school (I think) by replacing its capacitors but never got into the habit of using it since its FM reception was a bit spotty.
Well I finally hooked up a decent antenna to it and while it's still not able to tune in perfectly well, it's been a pleasure to use this again!
@TechConnectify as the internet’s resident dishwasher expert, I’m hoping you can offer me some advice. I just got a new dishwasher that came with a sample pack of weekly dishwasher cleaning tablets (the kind that wash the dishwasher itself, not the dishes) is that something I should be using?
Listening to NPR this morning, and apparently there are now influencers who have discovered what generic brands are. The kids are calling private-label products "dupes" and they're excitedly comparing them.
I've never felt so Midwestern and so old.
This. Which is why, after replacing three faulty mechanical thermostats I built my own fridge controller that sends notifications if you leave the door open. And have the washing machine and microwave of Tasmota smartplugs.
Useful, convenient, no cloud, no nonsense.
Ok, with the gas stove thread, people won't stop asking why I'm not considering an induction cooktop. So here's another thread where I try to answer this.
Perhaps the bottom line is this: I'm a Midwesterner. It carries a lotta baggage.
To elucidate, first you should understand that I have tried induction! Not the best experiences of it, to be sure, but I've used two portable burners and found them both to be impressive (with a few caveats). But on the whole, not a game changer to me.
OK, time for a short* thread** about gas stoves. At this point, I have been thoroughly disillusioned and don't know how I ever thought they were any good. I never want one again***
- I hope

*** Wok-users and enjoyers, boy do I have some interesting news for you about plug-in induction woks and how they're getting fairly cheap
