Is it vinegary or boozy or mouldy smell?

FWIW I’ve had much better luck with a much less hydrated starter - the 50:50 ones have always seemed to need more care than I’m able or willing to give.

Try this
35g starter (use your discard for this to start with)
30g water
40g white flour
12g wholemeal

Do this every 12 hours for a couple of days then it should be alright to leave in the fridge for a week between refreshes. If you’re baking every week you can get away without refreshing it, just hive off 100 or so grams of your built up levain (obvs depending on your bread / baking strategies)

If I need a liquidy starter I just take 10g of that and add 50g water, 50g white about 12 hours before I’m going to need it and leave it on the side.

My cubby hole under the stairs. Not that well lit so looks like this come 4:30. It’s in the living room so can be noisy - do meetings in my bedroom.

Been OK so far. That chair is a bit crap, but don’t really want an office chair sat in the living room as a permanent fixture cos they’re a) expensive and b) ugly.

Used to work from home maybe once or twice a month but reckon I’ll do it more if this ever ends, and if my job still exists.

Loving that I’m not alone in having the shitty standard issue HP laptop which is annoyingly too small to have the number keypad on the right of the keyboard. Solidarity with you all.

Both really, because I have a Mac with a Windows VM running on it as well.

Neeeeeerrrrd!

(I’ve got windows and making a decent amount of use of Ubuntu via WSL so is totally a pot kettle situation)

As in they can just see into your home at any time? What the hell, surely they can’t make you do that. Would be an absolute β€˜no’ from me.

Is there any reason for it other than β€˜they don’t trust that people are actually working’? If there’s that little trust then something is wrong at the organisation.

No, they want to be able to see his screen, not his home. I still wouldn’t be happy unless it was only granted at specific times.

it’s easy enough to turn off out of working hours

it’s more so i can remote into PCs at work but still…

they should give you a laptop.

Ohhh, okay. That’s less weird (still wouldn’t want it though). Thanks for explaining :slightly_smiling_face:

I’m not sure it goes both ways, does it?

i’m fairly sure they just set up so you can remote onto a PC in the office?
