DS208W

Okay, I’m disappointed. I downloaded all of the files that are in the related information for this session and they didn’t work. Some more research showed that they didn’t work because I’m using a Mac and the scripts are IE specific. I get JavaScript errors galore in the Mozilla js console. Even on Windows. HELLO!?! The title of this session …

MAX Materials

So I downloaded and printed the MAX materials today. Between the slow Flash Paper printing and the shoddy DSL line at my office it took over 2 hours to complete. Having access to the materials before hand is great, although it would be nice if Macromedia were able to make sure all the presentations had materials. I hope all of …

MAX

Next week should be fairly exciting. I’ll be attending the MAX the 2003 Macromedia Conference. This thing has been through so many names I still want to call it UCON or DEVCON. Last year was the first year in a long time that I skipped the conference (Disney World was too blasted expensive). This year I’m glad to be attending …

SURVEY 2.0

So the purpose of this blog was jointly food and technology. I don’t know that I’ve posted anything tech related here yet. Odd since I spend all day working on computers. The technology should pick up though. We’re working on some major things. This week has been really long. We shipped the second version of our data acquisition software (Educara …

Felini — Ack

Okay, it’s been a while since this debacle, but I still wanted to write about it. A few weeks ago Sarah’s parents were in town were staying the night before the Saturday MU Homecoming football game against Texas Tech (a blowout by the way). So we decided to try Felini, a new restaruant in town. First some background information. We …

Springfield, MO & BBQ

It’s looking like we’ll be moving to Springfield next August. Sarah had another round of interviews in Springfield and there’s a pretty good chance that’s where the job market will take us. After this weekend I’m starting to take to Springfield as a possible home. It’s still not KC though. Does anybody know of good BBQ in Springfield, MO? From …

Mizzou beats Nebraska 41-24

This isn’t at all food related, but I couldn’t resist writing about tonight’s MU smackdown of a football game against the undefeated Nebraska Cornhuskers. Tonight MU took a rainy Faurot field against the 10th ranked Nebraska for a sold-out crowd. After an average performance in the first half and a sad third quarter the Tigers had an amazing fourth quarter. …

Vegas Baby

I spent about 24 hours in Vegas this week for work (flew out Wednesday, back on Thursday). I lament that my awareness of budget didn’t allow for a tasting menu at Aureole or Renoir, but nearly $200 for dinner and wine was just too expensive for a meal eaten alone. I opted for the buffet at the Bellagio. Not haute …

New Pants == Good Bread

I have to admit that I am a bread snob. My obsession with bread lead to a nasty baking habit. For almost 6 months I didn’t buy any type of bread, just a lot of flour and yeast. Thankfully I’ve overcome the desire to bake all my bread myself. After hundreds of loaves I think I’ve finally overcome my main …

Steamed Buns

For dinner tonight we’re having Chinese steamed buns and possibly a noodle or rice dish. I’m going to try both a bbq pork and a sweet/sour chicken filling. Sarah’s sister is visiting tonight and she’s a fan of dim sum, so we figured we’d try this out on her. A local radio station (BXR) had a music therapy station at …

Leftovers from the ideal Summer meal

Last night I roasted a chicken on the grill. It was the start of the perfect summer meal. I will admin that I cannot place a probe thermometer in a chicken so that it accurately reads the temperature of the thigh. It always seems to reach 160 degrees long before the bird is actually done. In this case it took …

First Entry

This is the first post on my new blog. I’ve started it several times and never managed to keep up with regular posting. I think it’s because I’ve never bothered to find an interesting topic to write about. This time it will be different. I’m going to start with a theme and do my best to stick to it. I’m …
