My favorite (hard) boiled egg recipe is all about the steam

I am a huge fan of Chef John and his Food Wished channel on YouTube. I am also a fan of not messing up the simplest of recipes: making a hard-boiled egg.

SEO to Take You To 2019 and Beyond

My first official road ride of the year and it was glorious

My first official road ride of the year and it was glorious

Why did I stop riding every day to go everywhere? Probably because I wanted to get steps in or because I was riding at awesome CYCLEBAR Columbia Pike every day, or because it was too cold, too far, I was running too late, or because of the weather, because of impending storms, or because of laziness. Because of laziness. Because of Uber.

Cycling: Fri, 10 May 2019 17:15:43: drinks with Bob

Cycling: Fri, 10 May 2019 17:15:43: drinks with Bob

I left drinks with Bob at a quarter after 5 PM in order to meet Andrew at Courthouse Cinema. En route, I decided I really didn't want to grind up Wilson Boulevard right before the movie, swamping out my second t-shirt; so, I cheated and jumped the Metro from Rosslyn to Courthouse.

Cycling: Fri, 10 May 2019 22:38:08: Avengers with my buddy Andrew

Caught Avengers with my buddy Andrew and rode home. Didn't get hit with any rain on either of the second two rides today! And got to try out my Te-Rich 1200 Lumens Bicycle Headlight for the first time and I was very happy with it, though I think it and my GPS watch holders both need shims because they don't stay put.

Sanctions not socialism killing Venezuela

Sanctions not socialism killing Venezuela

Economic Sanctions as Collective Punishment: The Case of Venezuela, a report by Mark Weisbrot and Jeffrey Sachs for The Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) looks at some of the most important impacts of the economic sanctions imposed on Venezuela by the US government since August of 2017. It finds that most of the impact of these sanctions has not been on the government but on the civilian population.

Idido Coffee and Social House is my new local coffee shop off Columbia Pike in South Arlington

Idido Coffee and Social House is my new local coffee shop off Columbia Pike in South Arlington

I never cottoned to Rappahannock Coffee and one never wants to make a Starbucks your local. Idido's Coffee is perfect. Lots of room, great Wi-Fi, friendly people, delicious coffee as well as lots of other beverages. There's also breakfast croissants and pastries, both sweet and savory, and I think they serve lunch and salads and whatnot. All within 4 min (0.8 mi) of my front door.

Posse mailing list blast from the past

I had my own Listserv based on Mailman, the GNU Mailing List Manager. I called it the Posse mailing list and I don't know how active everyone else was with regards to using it, but I loved it. I love Mailman. I wrote my entire travel journal when I flew around the world and visited Asia and Europe, etc, and I emailed my missives to [email protected] Maybe now that I know the archives were at http://lists.urban.net/mailman/listinfo/posse maybe I can follow the Wayback Machine and find it. Maybe.

Catch and Kill by J.D. Lasica Review

Catch and Kill by J.D. Lasica Review

Catch and Kill: A Shadow Operatives Thriller by J.D. Lasica is an exciting portal into the tech and threats in the near future; it's both wild adventure fantasy novel but also too plausible as a near future we will need to address that will surely make the nuclear or climate threat seem quaint by comparison. It's a fun ride with heroines and villains and existential crises and the amazing technology of the very near future.

Hill Mole Spy Novel

Hill Mole Spy Novel

I started writing this spy novel casually on May 13, 2005, and sort of petered out on July 20, 2017. I aspire to continue. I blame Facebook and Twitter because I really stopped contributing to the novel, still alive at HillMole.com. But I had so much fun writing it. And I truly aspire to get her done, or make her a life's work. Ironically, it's still running a 2006 version of Six Apart's MovableType running Perl. I try my hardest to keep the code alive!

When a bot writes a Hallmark Christmas movie based on a 1,000 hours of Hallmark Christmas movies

Keaton Patti tweeted this at 10:34 AM on 12 Dec 2018: "I forced a bot to watch over 1,000 hours of Hallmark Christmas movies and then asked it to write a Hallmark Christmas movie of its own. Here is the first page." This is honestly the funniest thing I have ever read in my entire life.
