    So I'm thinking about swapping out phones.

    iPhone 6 vs. Galaxy S5 vs. HTC One M8.

    Any suggestions?

    If you go Android, get whatever Google is billing as their "Nexus" phone. Proprietary phones add lots of crapware outside of the standard Android distribution.

    I was pretty much going to just root and put Cyanogen on any Android I got.

    Yep, the Nexus 5 was an excellent phone, though from what I've read the Nexus 6 is a bit pricy and oversized.

    throwingknife: The water was still heating up and I impatiently dropped a one pound bagged roast in before the temperature quite stabilized. I wonder if I confused it? Maybe I accidentally created some temperature layers?

    I've done that before and never gotten anywhere near that discrepancy. Haven't ever seen more than a degree or two off what the Thermapen says. One thing I can think of is that maybe the bag blocked the circulator vent. Try rotating the vent so that it points backwards towards the edge of the pot instead of into the center.

    I'm still using a Galaxy S2 with cyanogenmod 11 and it works fine.

    Not Exactly is right, though. Browse XDA and see what's up with any phone you're interested in. I had root on mine when I first got it but any decent development was much later.

    They're from Slipped Stitch Studios. They came with a bracelet to keep them on when I'm not using them.

    They do all kinds of nerdy knitting accessories. I bought my knitting bag from them too. In the past they'd done Doctor Who, Firefly, Adventure Time etc. They sell out super fast.

    I got the Haunted Mansion bag.

    Hmm. Maybe I managed to get my thermometer right into the stream of just-heated water? I also tried a non-electronic dial thermometer that read another ten degrees higher.

    I'm not sure how your regulator works, then, because that would be physically impossible to do with my setup. I've got the Anova One, and the circulator vent where the heated water comes out is near the bottom of the unit, far too deep for the ThermaPen to reach. There's also no way that I could safely manage to wedge the ThermaPen between the regulator vent and the edge of the pot, and the hot water is dispersing off the pot edge, so the "stream of just-heated water" is less than 1cm long before it hits the pot wall.

    I've got the newest Anova, the one with Bluetooth but no actual app. :\ I think the vent is pretty similar. I guess with the circulater running it would be darn near impossible to have dramatically different regions in a pot of water, except for right at the vent. I certainly didn't do any gymnastics with the thermometer.

    Bastards have made it darn near impossible to google problems, although you do learn a lot about statistics in the process. I'm envisioning a situation where the water reaching the temperature sensor inside the unit is coming directly off your cold bag, causing the unit to believe the water is colder than it really is and overheating in compensation. Pointing the vent exit to the outside of the pot should eliminate that possibility.

    Before “geek”, “nerd”, “dork”, etc, the proper terms for these same ragamuffins were “Dewdroppers”, “Waldos”, and “Slackers”. Other common old slang words that were somewhat similar in meaning: pantywaist, oil can, drip, stinkeroo, mullet, roach, schnookle, kook, dimp, dorf, squid, auger, square, Joe Zilch, and dudd.

    A similar term to “geek”, in British slang, is “anorak”. This is typically used synonymously with “geek”, though it tends to imply an even greater level of awkward behavior patterns, more akin to someone who has Asperger’s Syndrome.

    Another British slang term that is somewhat similar to geek/nerd/etc is “boffin”; this is someone who is incredibly smart. Its closest American slang term equivalent is probably “egghead”.

    throwingknife: SV cook #1 was weird, but successful. I had it set for 131 but my Thermapen said it was at 150-160. That was the weird. I think it just wasn't settled? The small hunk of beef was fine, though. I'm starting on Friday's dinner. I just did some carrots, put them into the fridge, and plan to finish them tomorrow by browning a bit in butter. My Thermapen was agreeing with its temperature. I just started a bigger hunk of sirloin rib tip roast.

    Did you buy or build? Maybe the liquid wasn't circulating?

    "ESTP

    ESTPs are like ISTPs in that they sometimes turn into wailing mockeries of adult people. But ESTPs do not do it because the screams echo in the hollowness of their soul and they can pretend that the abyss is responding to them, no – the ESTPs do it because they think it’s fun. It’s what they live for. They’ll carry a gun into a bank just because it’s fun to scare the poor innocents, they’ll stand by the roadside and flash motorcyclists so they can watch them crash, nothing is out of limits for an ESTP.

    They are usually dumb as rocks. Which is good, because the ESTPs with brains are really fucking scary. The ESTP animal is the raccoon. Which may seem cute or fun to you unless you’ve met one."
