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?

ewwe, nooo.

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

today's leftovers

Leftovers: Software

  • The Linux Deepin File Manager Is a Thing of Beauty
    China-based Linux distro Deepin has shown off its all-new desktop file manager. And to say it's pretty is an understatement.
  • GRadio Lets You Find, Listen to Radio Stations from the Ubuntu Desktop
    Love to listen to the radio? My ol’ pal Lolly did. But let’s say you want to listen to the radio on Ubuntu. How do you do it? Well, the Ubuntu Software centre should always be the first dial you try, but you’ll need to sift through a load of static to find a decent app.
  • Reprotest 0.2 released, with virtualization support
    reprotest 0.2 is available in PyPi and should hit Debian soon. I have tested null (no container, build on the host system), schroot, and qemu, but it's likely that chroot, Linux containers (lxc/lxd), and quite possibly ssh are also working. I haven't tested the autopkgtest code on a non-Debian system, but again, it probably works. At this point, reprotest is not quite a replacement for the prebuilder script because I haven't implemented all the variations yet, but it offers better virtualization because it supports qemu, and it can build non-Debian software because it doesn't rely on pbuilder.
  • Calibre 2.63.0 eBook Converter and Viewer Adds Unicode 9.0 Support, Bugfixes
    Kovid Goyal has released yet another maintenance update for his popular, open-source, free, and cross-platform Calibre ebook library management software, version 2.63.0. Calibre 2.63.0 arrives two weeks after the release of the previous maintenance update, Calibre 2.62.0, which introduced support for the new Kindle Oasis ebook reader from Amazon, as well as reading and writing of EPUB 3 metadata. Unfortunately, there aren't many interesting features added in the Calibre 2.63.0 release, except for the implementation of Unicode 9.0 support in the regex engine of the Edit Book feature that lets users edit books that contain characters encoded with the recently released Unicode 9.0 standard.
  • Mozilla Delivers Improved User Experience in Firefox for iOS
    When we rolled out Firefox for iOS late last year, we got a tremendous response and millions of downloads. Lots of Firefox users were ecstatic they could use the browser they love on the iPhone or iPad they had chosen. Today, we’re thrilled to release some big improvements to Firefox for iOS. These improvements will give users more speed, flexibility and choice, three things we care deeply about.
  • LibreOffice 5.2 Is Being Released Next Wednesday
    One week from today will mark the release of LibreOffice 5.2 as the open-source office suite's latest major update. LibreOffice 5.2 features a new (optional) single toolbar mode, bookmark improvements. new Calc spreadsheet functions (including forecasting functions), support for signature descriptions, support for OOXML signature import/export, and a wealth of other updates. There are also GTK3 user-interface improvements, OpenGL rendering improvements, multi-threaded 3D rendering, faster rendering, and more.
