Re: cornbread recipe

I love that pre-made stuff in the UK is sold as "lazy chili," "lazy garlic," "lazy lemon," et. al.

Because that's why we pay more for someone else to do the prep! :)

Re: Smartphone plans

In Vegas I had issues. Many issues. Although I don't remember it as much in the last 2 trips so maybe that has been resolved.

Vegas depends upon demand. I had a country music festival going on next to my hotel for a couple of days and [more]

Re: Smartphone plans

Tmboile here...and generally I love them. In the city they are great and I get 4Glte service in areas (like work) where a lot of other people don't.

Re: Smartphone plans

Sorta like a newfangled Beta/VHS incompatibility?

That's a good way to put it.

Sprint non-contract brands are Boost & Virgin Mobile. CDMA.

ATT non-contract brand is AIO & Cricket. [Cricket ran a CDMA network [more]

Re: Smartphone plans

Good news: Most plans have great coverage in our area. Also, my BIL sent me my niece's old iPhone 4 (iOS7 compatable, whee) so my Smartphone decision was made for me.

Bad news: The carrier I was going to go with, Virgin and its $30/mo.

Re: Fun & Games, too.

I don't have a suggestion. I can only commiserate.

We do manufacturing. You can find good manufacturing systems. You can find good accounting systems. You can't find one that does both, at least not for a small business.

Re: Saturday night

Reminiscent of the times I got to sit in on a taping of This American Life at the Public Radio Conference back in the late 90's.

In reality, it was Ira, Sarah Vowell, and David Sedaris standing at a podium in a small hotel conference room [more]

Re: Fun and games

I haven't really done network/IT stuff since. . . 98? 97? until now. So, I'm catching up in a lot of ways.

Preach it. The last time I got formal networking instruction was back when Novell Netware was a thing.

I've picked up [more]

Re: Fun and games

I will admit that I think most of our problems could be solved with some well-timed expenditures.

Timing is everything. I am the default geek in a small company (6 people, about 15 PCs, handful of printers, etc.)

Re: Vinyl versus Steel

Our house was built with Hardieplank cement board siding just about 10 years ago. It still looks new, and it went through a hurricane in 2008. The warranty on it is 30 years.

Re: Speaking of easily-resolved tickets

We once had a beta tester named Ben.

We had an application that took a couple of seconds at startup to get its bearings. Ben would freak out and think it was locked up, close, and turn in a bug report.

So we added a message to the [more]
