Still not gotten all the ingredients; but it should be for sale in Germany, so will be checking there soon. Looking forward to some weird looks when cooking it and placing a bowl of water on top instead of a lid

Must... not... ACTIVATE FLASHBACK. WARNING: Old fart war story ahead.
A far time ago, in a galaxy long, long away...
I developed an OS/2 device driver for a piece of custom hardware in one of our products. Over four years of feature-metastasis and much refactoring(*) later, it was 18,000+ lines of assembly language. This piece of hardware controlled the signals we use to measure position in our commercial inkjet printing systems[^]. Debugging this driver often involved unrolling hundreds of feet of paper down the manufacturing area aisle and crawling on hands and knees from one end to the other, verifying that things printed properly.
Fortunately I now do the UI's on our products, and can work in an upright and locked position most of the time.
(*) Yes Virginia, you can refactor assembly language code. It's just like juggling razor blades, only messier.
