Re: Availability

I did ask the C'n'C bods for an update. They'll post something when the stuff's back on the shelves.

Re: Griddled muffins?

A griddle was what the recipe suggested, and it worked a treat.

Exactly. No chance of getting 'em round here, hence our foray into baking.

Re: Watching it in Spanish

Digital telly, so we watched it in the full splendor of the English original. Probably should have set it to Spanish, tbh.

Re: Re: Looks tasty

The effect of the order of cooking makes perfect sense to me. I too would welcome that skill.

Yeah, our chickpea stew is the same - chuck in what you fancy and see what happens.

Re: Re: Delicious

I'm not sure the "bloody great gammon joint" is in the spirit of our neckfiller "trying to avoid pork-based products for a a couple of weeks at least" spirit, but a magnificent repast, to be sure.

Re: Re: Isn't it about time...

Indeed. I reckon the Carolina Reaper masala omelette is far more dangerous than their lamentable fizzle nukes.

Re: Delicious

Good job. Fair enough on the additional ingredients - we're refining our recipe as we go, so have extra stuff to add to the mix.

Re: Love it

Oi - we just happened to mention the chickpea stew goes well with sag aloo. Bear in mind we have to allocate sufficient time to get drunk to test the recipes in real world conditions. You may think this is a bit of a lark, but my liver's in a right state.

Re: Competitors dead in the water?

Not a stupid question, but one I can't answer. We did a fresh install of Raspbian, so can't say if the SD swap would work. One for the experts...

Re: Simulation or Ad Campaign

The sales pitch is a parameter we hadn't considered. We assume that acts primarily on the canards. Please provide optimum figures, and we'll move forward from there.

Re: When...?

The only barrier to the launch is the FAA. When we get the nod, we're good to go.

Luckily, the team's enthusiasm is undiminished, despite what is proving a very frustrating delay.

Re: Canards

The canards don't animate, nor do the rudders, which makes it look a bit odd. They work virtually, though.

Re: Real-life testing?

No, we're going for broke on the day, as it were. Have mulled it over, we've decided that the benefits from full-fat test flight are outweighed by the risks to the aircraft. It's an audacious and controversial strategy, but hey, no guts no glory and all that.

Re: Re: Timeframe

A very fair point. There must be some kind of benchmark we can establish, for comparative purposes of obstruction.

I'd like to think it would, but the extra weight they'd gain from the donuts would probably just add to the inertia.

It's all down to the FAA. We're on the case, but these people will not be hurried.
