I know these are not your speakers but this link is for build them yourself products by a company whose owner knows a thing or two about design and acoustics. It might be an interesting read, well, parts of it anyway

I have an older set of S4's which in the wrong place produce standing waves and low spots. They do not take kindly to toe in either but they do produce lows that are tight and agile. Good timing too as you can listen to them all day without tiredness or stress

Pop, I only know how to eat .. doesn't know how to cook :)
I asked my wife (the one who cook lol) she said she used the same brand that you post
https://www.zojirushi.com/app/product/nsrnc
the white one. She also use Jasmine rice from Sam's club.
She said 2 1/2 cups of water for 1 cup of rice, but you have to experiment a little bit to find the fit for your taste.
She started it out with 2 cups but it was too dry for us so she add another 1/2 of a cup then it was perfect for us.

I know nothing of rice cookers but if the basic rule about boiling rice says that in a large pot with plenty of water time is everything with regards how much water the rice takes up and therefore how nutty the bite and how moist the rice is then:

If you need a rice cooker to make it wetter could you not add a small amount of water to the recommended amount?

I presume that they in fact steam the rice

I use an electric kettle at home and at work for those noodles you showed me.  Instead of boiling the noodles I just let the water come to boil and shut off in the electric kettle, then pour over the noodle in a larger bowl to let them soak for a couple minutes.  Then drain in a small colander.  And while they are draining I mix up the packets in that same bowl, then pour the noodle back in.  Bowl is still nice and warm so it keeps noodles warmer longer :)

Now the rice I have no idea on lol

I've seen issues where the surname is misspelled here because it was spelled phonetically by the person filling out the paperwork upon arriving.

Your's could of actually been Toules, but was spelled Towels because that was what it sounded like.

I drink scotch every once in a while, still like beer better. I'd recommend John Barr blended scotch. It's the same guy that makes Johnnie Walker black label, but now he starts his own brand.
For about $20 for a fifth I'd say it's a bargain right now. Once it gets popular the price prolly won't stay at $20. Other alternatives are Old Smugglers or Clan McGreggor. Those are pretty good for the price too.

I have been trying to use that link, it is what I had bookmarked but Chrome or Firefox immediately close the tab.

if you are using a piehole it does not work with the OGR stats site for some reason even if you whitelist it.
