Rav Reuven told me clearly that a baal nefesh is a very high madreigah, and that he himself does not feel that he is holding there (approx. 5 years ago), but since people perceive him as being a real baal nefesh, he himself is machmir. And that for me, there is no reason to (unless they are basically the same price).

Deals/Deal Requests / Re: ISO: Large Freezer Recommendations

I agree that Town Appliance is the place to call. 732.364.5195. They advertise and service beyond just Lakewood, and they really have the knowledge in my experience.

One pet peeve of mine in regard to freezers: There are (at least) two types of large freezers, one is the traditional type, with coils or shelves that freeze, and the other is the newer, "frost-free" models that freeze using fans, like a powerful air-conditioner. Every store that I've spoken to has recommended the new frost-free ones, because "hey, why would you want to have to defrost the freeze once or twice every year?" I strongly disagree with their recommendation. In my experience, things stored in frost-free freezers for extended periods (anytime more than a week or two) get a freezer taste. If it's there for a month or two, it will get seriously freezer-burned. In a traditional non-frost-free freezer, however, I find that food maintains its freshness for extended periods of time. I consider the defrosting - which is really no big deal - a very worthy trade-off.
I agree 100%. I have a large frost freezer and the small frost-free that comes wih the fridge. The difference is HUGE!

Tech Talk / Re: Internet Filters

Just to clarify Gentech is a very good product. Service is great, but in comparison to Techloq it`s not worth it
Techloq has:
Highest average response rate, with most times under two minutes
Image filtering, if wanted you could even request only on specific category's or none
Easy installation and changes...
A team of reps around the world most times in the day 
Priced cheaper then Gentech

Gentech has:
Very good product
The highest price on average Windows filter
Great Tech support, But it takes more time....

My personal experience on my computer was great never had any BUGS, but now with Techloq nothing to compare
Based on the above I would love to cancel Gentech and get Techloq instead. but my membership just renewed in December and  charged me for a full year. Is there any way to get a (partial) refund?

People assume that all kitchens work like theirs:
1) Some people always rinse their utensils as soon as they're done using it.
2)Others sometimes allow them to wait near the sink until they get around to it
Type 1 people will never have this problem as @shaulyaakov points out
1. Hot water is pareve
2. Kavush only applies to leaving things for a while
3. People wash pareve dishes all the time. If it's cold milk, any taam that comes off a sponge is pogem (soap imbedded there).

So quickly we forget that they didn't have 3 sets of dishes in Europe.

However type 2 people may get into issues as it may sit for over 24 hrs. if thing get hectic and dried milk may end up being cooked in with irui kli rishon etc. as @Yard sale asserts
Using actual cold milchigs and fleishigs in the same kli on a consistent basis is asking for problems. Aside from the practical problems of others (or visitors) in the house using the measuring cup for hot (many recipes call for adding hot water etc.) there are potential kavush problems as well as the measuring cup being washed with other Keillim,  sponges etc that can cause it to lose its Parve status so really not such a great idea.
1. Hot water is pareve- until you measure dairy cream and use afterwards for hot water without washing out.
2. Kavush only applies to leaving things for a while- remains can stay for a while when placed in the sink or dishwasher.

So quickly we forget that they didn't have 3 sets of dishes in Europe- but 2 sets for sure, same dishes were never used for milchig and fleishig.

No, it was a bonus offered on my account which I took advantage of.  Now, years later, they decided I wasn't eligible for the offer that they offered me.
