Cola Wars

Diet Coke with Splenda

I used to be a big (HUGE) regular coke drinker (several cans per day), then I gave up all unnecessary sugar and switched to diet coke (blech).

Luckily Coke came out with Coke Zero (good, but a bit sharp for my personal preference) and Diet Coke with Splenda which to me tastes great (and a tad sweeter then Coke Zero).

Now I can indulge my unending thirst for bubbly drinks (with caffeine of course) and not gain unwanted pounds (tons) or turn into a raging diabetic.

Good Job Coke!

I'll have to try that one! Big Grin

dangerous?

I have seen coke become highly corrosive when heated and eat through the can without much effort. (throwing coke can on camp fire with small amount of coke left) i wouldn't advise doing this with a metal container (or for that matter putting anything metal in a microwave). I may be wrong so your welcome to try it and see if you can prove me wrong.

PS I cannot be held responsible for any of your actions and I don't condone trying this

Have you ever tried colas heated almost boiling by microwave oven to intensify the taste?

I love it, especially you can water them down to taste or heating them up for zest. You could also heat and add instant jello to thicken them, what with cherry, lemon or even strawberries? Ever tried adding instant pudding or Oatmeal? Wow, for rich colas? Or fake Frape in Boston or milk shake colas, black cow?

I've always suspected, but now you've confirmed it - You are a strange person atang! Big Grin

Coke rules!

You missed off store brand cola, lol but good old coke wins out for me every day, esp lemon coke Tongue Yum

Coke, best drink ever!

I agree, coke wins for sure! Store cola is good, it's cheap, but it's not "as good" Smile
I remember years ago when they used to make that contest at our amusement park where you had to find out which one was coke, pepsi and store brand.
Can't believe people didn't see the difference Tongue

  • A Minimal Chrome OS Theme for Tint2
    I used to (and sort-of-still-do, I guess) run a sister site focused on Google Chrome, Chromecast and Chromebooks, i.e. the Chrome ecosystem. As such I am a fan of Chromebooks and Chrome OS, a Linux-based distribution based on Gentoo. The appearance of Chrome OS has waxed and waned in sync with Google’s ambitions and positioning for the OS, going form hyper-minimal to a full desktop clone (with the desktop-y Chrome Apps platform) through to a Material Design inspired Android + Chrome hybrid today.

  • Linux Digital Audio Workstations: Open Source Music Production
    Linux Digital Audio Workstations When most people think of music programs, they’ll usually think Mac OS or Windows. However, there are also a few Linux digital audio workstations. The support and features of these programs can vary, but they’re a good choice to setup a cheap recording studio. Some of them are even good competitors for paid programs, offering features such as multitrack recording, MIDI, and virtual instruments. Keep in mind that many audio editing programs for Linux rely on the Jack backend. You’ll need a dedicated system to install these programs on, since it doesn’t work properly in a virtual machine. In the following article, we’ll cover audio editing programs that are available for Linux. We’ll talk about the available features, as well as help you decide which program to use for your needs.

  • 4 Command-Line Graphics Tools for Linux
    For the most part, they’re wrong. Command-line image tools do much of what their GUI counterparts can, and they can do it just as well.

Let’s take a look at four command-line tools that can ably handle many of your basic (and not-so-basic) image manipulation tasks.

  • Qt 5.10 To Have Built-In Vulkan Support
    With Qt 5.8 there was experimental Direct3D 12 support that left some disappointed the toolkit didn't opt for supporting Vulkan first as a cross-platform, high-performance graphics API. Fortunately, with Qt 5.10, there will be built-in Vulkan support. Going back nearly one year there has been Vulkan work around Qt while with Qt 5.10 it's becoming a reality. However, with Qt 5.9 not even being released until the end of May, Qt 5.10 isn't going to officially debut until either the very end of 2017 or early 2018.
