Peak cast iron.
Mostly no-name except the Le Creuset dutch oven and Griswald "189" crepe pan. The square pan was a gift and I've not found a use for it. Rest is good old cast iron.
Also have a dutch oven (which I use for actual in-the-coals baking, so it's not pretty) with a broken lid. Used to use that lid on the medium skillet, and the only thing I need now is some skillet lids.
[Blog] Celebrating our anniversary(http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CraigMaloney/~3/xUuRD3Y7Hh0/)
JoDee and I are celebrating 14 years of being married together. In some ways it feels like yesterday that we were exchanging our vows, eating delicious cake, and trying to shoo everyone out so we could go on our honeymoon. :)
I mention the cake because the cake we had was amazing. We had our reception at Fox and Hounds (during lunch time because it was way cheaper) and The Fox and Hounds had an amazing pastry shop called The Fox and Hounds Pastry Den. I remember us getting a sampler of all of their various cakes and sampling them with JoDee, her sister, and her dad. JoDee made cards and we all voted on which cake we would have. What eventually won was a chocolate cake with white chocolate mousse filling and a vanilla butter-cream frosting. Apparently the cake was such a hit that several folks asked for seconds. One of the wait-staff had the foresight to hide the cake top so we could have some later on.
We froze part of the top and had it for our one year anniversary. It was still amazing.
Unfortunately The Fox and Hounds closed up. One of the pastry chefs bought the rights to the name, the recipes, and the pans and opened up his own shop far away from where The Fox and Hounds was.
My parents have been trying for some time to get us this cake. For various reasons it never happened (too far, couldn't get a hold of the chef, etc.)
We thought we'd had the last of that amazing cake.
Today my parents surprised us with that same cake. The chocolate cake with the white butter-cream frosting and the white chocolate filling.
Apparently the pastry chef sold The Fox and Hounds Pastry Den to another one of the chefs. She recently re-opened her shop closer to us. She has all of the recipes, the pans, and even the cash register from the original den.
Today we got to taste a bit of our wedding night again. Even though we were full I couldn't help but try to eat another bite.
Thank you mom and dad for one of the best reminders of the happiest day of our lives.
Here's to many many more years of marriage. I love you sweetheart.Feed Address: http://feeds.feedburner.com/images/2017-05-19-18.18.15-1.jpg HTTP Error (Code) and Message: (404) Feed not found error: FeedBurner cannot locate this feed URI.
The cake is a lie!
Hard time seeing any outcome that isn't one of these three:
2) Total fascism
3) Nuclear war

Greetings fellow inhabitants of this great ball we call “Earth”. I have spent the past few days on allergy medicine, antibiotics, and nasal steroids so if this episode seems a little extra-punchy there’s a good chance that’s the reason. It’s also a somewhat shorter show than normal, but what’s in there will likely damage your speakers with it’s intensity. Everything in this episode is more packed than my sinuses. We’ve got music from Wombripper, Tiempos De Ira HC, Technickill,m Ekstasis, Vazio, Dew of Nothing, Nuclear and Kaballah waiting to shake loose any crap that might be hanging on in your earholes.

Got married today
I married my long-time girlfriend today. We've been together for 15 years, so we thought it was time to make it more official. (Also makes things legally simpler with the baby and all...)Show all 17 replies
FSF-endorsed librea-as-you-can-get computer is 2/3 of the way funded... but only a week left! Help it out!
(And yeah @Alexandre Oliva, I know the crowdfunding site situation isn't great!)
I seem to be doing a lot more mobile (i.e. Android) computing these days. With the baby I rarely have time to sit down at the computer.Show all 7 replies
@cwebber Yeah, that's probably the main point, he keeps learning and adapting, so every day is different.
Another problem is the impossibility of controlling all the input variables, or reading the internal state (hungry, tummy ache, tired, etc). In the beginning the output was more or less binary: crying, not crying. But now we're picking up more nuanced output which helps :-)
[Blog] How to declutter - a simple primer on how to remove crap from your life(http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CraigMaloney/~3/NLl1puYkZpk/)
This afternoon I was putting away a physical copy of Civilization V when I spied (with my little eye) some competing video games from a publisher that I shall not name.
Said publisher is local to me, and I've long wanted to support them, but unfortunately the only way I can run their products is via WINE / Crossover Linux. And unfortunately the experience is sub-optimal (in the sense that the game will up and crash after about 10 or so minutes of game-play). Which takes away from the enjoyment as these games take hours / days to play and random crashes can ruin the fun.
I also seemed to recall that their CEO was rather outspoken about gaming-movements-that-shall-not-be-named . So I went to the internet and managed to find his Twitter feed.
After a post equating SJWs with lazy bums who won't do their part to succeed I decided that some decluttering was in order.
Fortunately their packaging was such that my Staples Mailmate shredder was more than sufficient to render the contents into a more pleasing and usable format.
Sure this is a bit late (they already have money for two purchases) but at least I can make more room for things that I actually care about, and for people that I care about enough to listen.
Via some mechanism, you could in theory “talk to” the machine's generated AI system to ask it why it did what it did. But will the car manufacturer permit you to do so?Does the public allow sale of a car that is not fully auditable? If not, the car manufacturer will permit you to do so.
And what of our legal tools? Does copyright apply? Does copyleft apply? If not, are there other ways to protect the commons of software being developed as others attempt to lock it down?Yes, public regulation. Developers cannot be counted on to self-regulate each other.
Screw "<br>". "<br/>" forever.
