    Me too.

    And I use a Brita water filter, to get rid of the chemicals in the tap water.

    For my tropical aquarium fish, I use a Reverse osmosis filter (mainly to remove nitrate). For me, I just take it from the tap. Brita filter isn't that great anyways - good marketing, and of course, if you like the taste of the water after but not before, then go ahead. But believing that it actually has any health-effect whatsoever, and you'll be kidding yourself [assuming you are supplied by mains-water of UK/European standard, and you do not have a iron-rich well or some such].

    Brita filters are awesome http://www.vvork.com/wp-content/uplo...b_vader_sm.gif
    Hehe.

    matsp I always knew you were a classy man... but tropical aquarium fish, you outdid yourself!

    I like to drink barleywine while programming. It puts a healthy limit on the amount of time I spend writing code, because after a while I can no longer see the keys properly.

    (Of course, I don't drink beer while coding at work.)
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Coke and fruit juice most the time. At home I stay away from caffeine by consuming copious amounts of ginger ale. I'm convinced that the growth of beverage-related industries is directly proportional to the growth of software companies.

    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    haha let's see if I will be able to do that by the time I finish my engineering degree.

    It seems more people drink coke than water.

    I've been trying to find separator, but no one seems to sell the drink

    On the other hand, there appears to be a number of recipes online for a cocktail named separator.

    Speaking of filtered water, some people stick a magnet to the side or bottom of their water jug.

    The theory is that the magnet pulls the metals(copper, lead, zinc, mercury etc) out of the water.

    Makes sense to me.

    I'd have to say the idea of a magnetic pulling non-ferromagnetic materials actually makes no sense at all.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Makes no sense to me either, for the same reason as brewbuck describes. More so, in the UK at least, there are "magnetic scale reducers", and I have so far not found ANY [scientific] evidence that this works, and in discussion with other people, the only ones that say it works are also of the kind that I find have a "unscientific attitude" in general (e.g. believes in all sorts of nonsense IMO).

    One that I could myself debunk was a "magnetic fuel efficency improver", where the claim that CO2 emissions was reduced by adding this thing to the fuel line. But what they didn't explain was why the CO and NOx emissions on the same (after) test-run was INCREASED - my explanation to that would be a difference in ambient temperature (higher in the second run), and since the car was using carburettor and not computerized fuel injection system, it would end up with less oxygen in the engine, causing less efficient burning of the fuel, and of course, less CO2. You can prove almost anything by selecting appropriate data!

    I agree about non-ferromagnetic materials.

    I think the theory is to pull the tiny bits of solid metals in the water, not metal ions.

    These metals may have broken off from rusting lead and copper pipes, or are in the water for whatever reason.

    But that may be a bit too paranoid.

    EDIT: Ok, a little research shows lead and copper are non-ferromagnetic(not magnetic). I thought they were
    non-ferromagnetic because they were ions, not solids.

    Well, that theory goes out the window!
