Office Taskbar PWNage!

So I just recently re-installed windows on my desktop and was installing my office365 suite (I’m doing the annual 5 seat license, so far I’m very happy with it other than trying to find the installer for each system, but that’s a different rant).

I happened to pin them to my task-bar and it spelt out “pwn” and I found that funny so I wanted to share. :)

Office365 PWNage!

 

 

 

(I’m using Powerpoint a lot for my capstone at ITT if you curious why it made it to the task-bar. It won’t be there much longer.)

Coining the term “PirateDriving”

So I’ve long been a fan of wardriving which is the act of driving around with a laptop sniffing packets of open (and closed) wifi access points (Great android app, check out wigle.net or search the android market for wigle wifi). However I’ve yet to hear of a term defining driving around with an open wifi access point (such as my piratebox) offering content instead of looking for other’s. So following the spirit of merging the two concepts that brought me to this head, I’ll just start calling it “PirateDriving”.

I’ll be running around Martinez/Concord/Pleasent Hill/Walnut Creek area’s in California the next few weeks with my piratebox hooked up to my power inverter and my piratebox running. When I’ll be parked for a while I’ll be the white truck with several antenna’s on the roof and one really long stainless steel whip that stand’s at around 12′ in the air. Feel free to approach me, I’m harmless I promise, and I just might have some decent content you might be looking for!

The Most Beautiful Thing I've Ever Eaten

Gosh, I don’t even know where to start this post.

I just finished eating a slice of this concoction that I’ve made and I’ll be honest, it might have been a bit too much.

It starts like this:

img_0420

  • 2 Pizza’s (Your choice but I recommend meat!)
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Avocado (mom said everything should have something green in it.)
  • 2 lbs. Bacon (I used 1 lb. Pepper Bacon and 1 lb. Applewood Smoked Bacon)
  • 3 lbs. Ground Beef
  • 1 Package cheddarwurst (You’ll only need 1-2 sausages however)
  • And as much cheese as you can stomach! (again your choice but I used Monterey Jack)

Cook each item seperatly to prevent anything from being uncooked as there’s alot of meat in this meal!

I started with the bacon figuring it would take the most time. Preheat your oven to around 400 F. then weave and cook your bacon. (got this idea from this post on infobarrel.com)

While that’s browning in the oven let’s start with the burger. Chop up one half an onion, and add some seasoning to the ground beef in a large bowl and mix with your hand’s.

I used some coarse ground black pepper, garlic powder, and of course some Bacon Salt! (goes GREAT on french fries!)

Wait until the first bacon weave is done cooking before starting the second weave so that you can take a few of the leftover strips and add those to the ground beef and mix!

Now that you have your meat’s all prepped go ahead and start grilling up that burger and the chedderwurst. (the burger is going to be harder then you might think!)

Such a good start! (notice the center is slightly concave, this helps the cooking process of a burger this large.)

Argh! At least it fell apart on the grill, I almost dropped it and that would have sucked!

By now your second bacon weave should be ready so get it out as well and let it drain onto some paper towels for a little bit to let it crisp up which makes it easier to handle. Being the oven’s free now, go ahead and throw in your pizza’s. (because your doing 2 pizza’s at once I raise the temp about 50 degrees F. and lower the shelves down a level from center)

Slice the cheddarwurst up and set aside for now. (A cheddarwurst is a sausage that already has cheese in it! YUM!)

While we’re waiting for the pizza’s to finish you should grate some cheese and sprinkle on top of the burger.

You can also chop up the avocado and start the gravy as well as it only takes a few min’s (the gravy made this meal!).

Once the pizza’s are done, pull everything together and admire what your about to submit your digestive system to.

Awesome! (the snow pea’s I was munching on during the cooking as I probably inhaled at least 500 calories just from cooking all of this!)

Now let’s get to assembly!

I choose to go, Pizza 1 > Bacon Weave > burger > cheddarwurst > avocado > more cheese > Gravy > Bacon Weave > Pizza 2 but of course you can use your imagination here.

Almost finished!!! drool…….

Just slice into small wedges and pray!

So here’s some finishing shots!

img_0451 img_0452 img_0455

It turned out GREAT! However I can’t stress SMALL slices enough, I made mine into 8 pieces and should have gone for at least 10 as I couldn’t finish my slice by myself!

All in all it took me about a hour and a half to make this from start to finish, and cost about $50 but it was a hell of an experience! I’ve got leftovers if anyone’s interested! Bring a heart monitor!

My Roomate's a Bitch part 1

Well fuck, if I didn’t have a place to bitch I suppose I shouldn’t have a blog anyways right?

So Tonight we have a perfect reason to have an ongoing series for the remainder of my time living with “ChovyX”.

Chovyx

So I’m playing with my new BASIC Stamp prototyping board trying to learn some pretty complicated stuff when your teaching yourself, and he comes home from the baseball game. It’s 11:30 pm so I’m figuring he’ll be in, tell me all about it whether I want to hear it or not, and be off to bed, all of witch pretty much went down as I figured, BUT, I had forgotten about his dog (like he’s forgotten his cat since getting the dog)!

So he let’s his dog out to go “potty” and wait, wtf is that smell. Oh Shit! Yup, skunk. And not the kind you grow in your backyard!

What’s the first thing he does? Freaks out and brings the dog into the house, and then pauses to ask ME what he should do!

I gave him quite simple orders, put the dog in the garage and go to the store and buy tomato sauce and bathe your dog in it.

He said he didn’t want to go to the store tonight and that leaving the dog in the garage all night would be mean! So, Stinking to high hell in the HOUSE he tromps the dog up to his room and closes the door. Fuck it, I stuffed a towel under his door, he wants that in his room, so be it!

Of course the house is impregnated with it fully, as well as the event happened in the backyard so we have a lovely draft coming in through the house weather or not we want it.

So during the time it took me to write the above paragraphs he’s called his mommy, asked her what to do, she said tomato sauce as well, so he’s off to her house to wash the dog in her sauce because “The dog’s scarred, I don’t want to leave her in the garage while I go to the store!”

Yes he’s a bitch, plain and simple.
