This gadget sounds really useful!  I have a coconut scraper made like a small stool, with the scratching part sticking out one side.  This is fun (in a mild way) but the sharp teeth sticking out at shin level aren't the best plan for kitchen furniture.  A bench-mounted, relocatable, had-whirled scraper sounds just the ticket!

I've been reading quite a bit, here and there -
  • reading the book Nation by Terry Pratchett, and thinking (so far, three chapters in) that it's very good, but erratic and a bit patchy.
  • have read the book Olive, by Mrs Craik, which interesting as a record of thinking on various matters (women's art being marginalised/suppressed, physical "deformity" cutting a woman out of the marriage market, race, religion) - but is not particularly worth much as a novel.
  • reading The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu, which sketches out much fascinating material, so far, but isn't really catching fire (bad metaphor, in the circumstances).
And beginning to brace myself for March, which is shaping as a pretty full-on month.

This was also a test-post on cross-posting to LJ; it seems to have worked fine.

I love Rhik Samadder's gadget reviews. I really enjoy that he's funny even when reviewing something well-made or useful, which is much harder than being funny about something that is a horrifying and inexplicable disaster.

Oh, good! Because the thing where I made a post on DW, left the house for twelve hours, and came back to find that it had still not crossposted was stupid.

Yes, it was nice to see him get a non-horrifying gadget for a change.

Or maybe the egg sausage thing.

Oh, God, the egg sausage thing.

It really does seem there are kitchen gadgets that can you anything you want. :-) Also, does this only work with mature coconuts or young ones as well?
