April 16

Over the years...

 

In the Quickfire, itโ€™s a true test of communication as the chefs play a game of telephone with their loved ones as they try to reproduce the dish their family member is currently eating at a nearby restaurant. Then, the chefs are tasked with creating a signature product that they will bottle, use on a dish and sell at a food festival. They may get help from their visiting loved ones, but for one chef, the help wonโ€™t save them from being sent home. Celebrity Chef Nancy Silverton is the guest judge joining Tom, Padma and Gail.

The worst part is that I have no viable option to replace my laptop, because Apple has a gaping hole in the middle of the lineup. The new 16" MBP looks great, but is far too big. The MacBook Air is underpowered for me. The 13" MBP hasn't been updated yet. Sigh.

 

My 2017 13" MacBook Pro is really not working well for me anymore. Its becoming clear that a 3.1 GHz i5 and 16 GB of RAM is insufficient for my day-to-day. This is partially due to the fact that all computers now have 78 instances of Chromium running...

 

Winners at War put the game aside for a heartfelt moment with their loved ones until a wild tribal council sends the 12th person to the Edge of Extinction.

Listened to Dear Internet Episode 1 – Mushrooms, WoW, and Big Foot

Dear Internet, We love doing Cast of Thrones, but all good things must come to an end, and with the final season of GoT upon us we needed to figure out what is next. The answer is our new show: Dear Internet! On our new show, we delve deep into the dark corners of the internet, and find the people that need our help the most. There are some questions that you only dare ask the Internet. Hopefully the very real and serious advice we dole out will work to make the world a better place. This week we help a couple with their mushroom problem, we discuss whether or not you should pad out your resume with your World of Warcraft experience, and what to do when your new love interest only wants to go on dates that include hunting Big Foot. We are a new show, and would greatly appreciate if you could leave us a 5-star review on your podcast app of choice! Sincerely, The coHosts- Nick Bristow, Michael DiMauro, Tim Lanning, Jennifer Cheek Apple Podcast, Spotify, RSS โ€“ follow us on Twitter!

Listened to Episode 2: Restoration

This time, on clevercast, I reminisce about one of my earliest personal websites. What happened to its content? How did I create it? Is there any chance of restoring it back to greatness?
