    Aging: is there such thing as too long?

    I've had cigars like I mentioned, made from very well aged tobacco. After a few years they get surprisingly thin.....almost like smoking air. One recommendation I've heard is to buy a box, then smoke one every three months or so. You'll get to experience the change and can determine your...

    Aging: is there such thing as too long?

    Depends completely on the cigar. Some well known brands are made with well aged tobacco and are best smoked sooner than later. I've also got a cherished few Cubans that are 40+ years old and smoke like heaven. So...."it depends" is the only right answer.

    What music are you listening to currently?

    Tool....Fear Inoculum, 10,000 days, and Lateralus are keeping my systems busy. Amazing, well recorded progressive rock. Really digging it.

    SensorPush, Govee and Radio Shack/Oregon Scientific Hygrometer Review and Comparison

    After another six hours, the cal was holding */- a tenth of a point or so, so they got put back into service. Good maintenance task, two years feels about right for this one unless one of the sensors flags a low battery in the meantime.

    SensorPush, Govee and Radio Shack/Oregon Scientific Hygrometer Review and Comparison

    After about 32 hours, here's where we are. Govee unit is basically brand new, SensorPush units are about 2 years old, with fresh batteries. No compensation was used, this shows how the individual units are calibrated. Not bad, but the salt doesn't lie..... Bottom line, you should really be...

    SensorPush, Govee and Radio Shack/Oregon Scientific Hygrometer Review and Comparison

    Here we go....the victims: A little tough to see through the bags, but the six hygros and the salt are double bagged and the process begins. Now, we wait..... Fresh batteries and a little DeOxit in the three SensorPush units and the other two little hygros. SensorPush units are still...

    SensorPush, Govee and Radio Shack/Oregon Scientific Hygrometer Review and Comparison

    Looks to me like the difference is the old one is Bluetooth only, while the new one does Bluetooth and WiFi. SensorPush is also Bluetooth, but has a WiFi gateway option. Current prices for the Govee are $14.95 for the 'old' one, $39.95 for the 'new' one. WiFi lets you get your data from...

    SensorPush, Govee and Radio Shack/Oregon Scientific Hygrometer Review and Comparison

    Did you salt test them...?? I'm going to do mine this weekend; they're so easy to calibrate, seems a very solid idea to get them all on the money.

    SensorPush, Govee and Radio Shack/Oregon Scientific Hygrometer Review and Comparison

    Govee showed up today. Powered right up, connected to my phone, no problem. This weekend I'm going to pull all the hygros, change batteries in the SensorPush units, and salt test the lot of 'em. I calibrated my SensorPush units when I first got them, so it'll be interesting to see how close...

    SensorPush, Govee and Radio Shack/Oregon Scientific Hygrometer Review and Comparison

    Decided to replace my "dry box" desktop (~62%) with a new one I found on Holt's, and ordered a Govee to use with it. I'll (finally) pull all my SensorPush units, replace the batteries, and salt test all four of them when the Govee gets here on Monday. Humidor seasoning will commence as soon as...
