The bottom glowy bit just arrived. I think it adds a nice symmetry. There is no such thing as RGB addiction. Really.
This is ridiculous. Page 2: ! DANGER: RISK OF SEVERE INJURY OR DROWING! four bullet points. ! DANGER: RISK OF SEVERE INJURY OR DROWING! five bullet points. ! DANGER: RISK OF SEVERE INJURY FROM ELECTRIC SHOCK OR DEATH FROM ELECTROCUTION! seven bullet points (bleeding on to page 3). Oddly, hair dryers are not called outContinue reading “Hibernating Menace!”
This seems to fit me. I found it at the PowerLine week-in-pictures, so I have no idea how to attribute it. And there is a word for words that are spelled the same but pronounced differently (e.g. “record a record”), but I don’t remember what it is; “grafonym” or “homograf” maybe? I had never realizedContinue reading “Cross Disciplinary”
I needed to make chili for a contest. All my favorite recipes are packed in a box, somewhere. So, I looked up a recipe, which I’ve already lost the link to, to be sure I had the proportions right and winged it. I didn’t want to spend all night on it, so I parallel pipelinedContinue reading ““Hurry Up and Wait” Chili”
Bread, again Well… I tried the bread recipe from Brown-eyed Baker. As you can see, it was a bit non-standard. Having only one bread pan that’s not packed away, somewhere, I halved the recipe. Except for the water. So, I needed to double my halving of everything else. This recipe creates a LOT of breadContinue reading “Learning 2 Bake – from Scratch XXIII”
gogs is a “GO Git Server” that (supposedly) runs just about anywhere. It runs fine here. I wanted source control locally, and a bit more “control” than just a git init local directory. There were a few issues: I wanted the repository directory to be on a guest/host shared directory/folder (so Windows backups would getContinue reading “gogs up”
Blueberry Turnovers That is much better! I need to work on sealing – and getting them all the same size and shape. I needed at least seven; that’s just how the cutting worked out. Same dough recipe, but not halved. No extra water. No extra turns, but I did double-turn it by folding it intoContinue reading “Learning 2 Bake – from Scratch XXII”
Another Bread I get side-tracked on recipe sites. After finding Brown-eyed Baker, I was looking around and found a bread recipe. I still looking for something reliable and fluffy. (It can’t be me, right?) I’ll probably try it, tomorrow, but now it’s permanently linked, in case I don’t get to bread.
Strawberry Turnovers Fleet Farm sells very yummy dried strawberries. The turned biscuit experience had me thinking about pastry. Guess what! I made pastry: Strawberry turnovers. My Joy of Cooking is still packed, somewhere, so I turned to the Internet for a starting point. I found an apple turnover recipe that looked good at Brown-Eyed Baker.Continue reading “Learning 2 Bake – from Scratch”
Those count, right? Very non-stereo, but there is no room on the right side of my desk for one of those. There will be upstairs – I’m building it into the desk space; they’ll hang on each side of the monitor. As always, it was an adventure with a simple solution. Why do they alwaysContinue reading “Computer Speakers”
