  • Kenmore fridge defrost

    I came back from vacation to a fridge that wouldn’t get cold and a freezer that was iced over in the back. I have a bottom-freeze model so I knew the issue – ice was clogging the duct that allows cold air up to the fridge. I’m guessing the defrost cycle didn’t kick in enough…

  • I realize again I need to blog more.

    I’m not sure why, but I feel the need to blog a bit more, so I’m going to try and make a post a day. I’ll be on vacation coming up soon which might make it tough but I’ll try! So far: I’ve done 6 days of p90x3 — starting up again and hope to…

  • vBulletin to Discourse conversion.

    I’m in the process of trying to move from vBulletin on a forum to Discourse and I’m having a bit of a hard time. There are no instructions on running the importing script so its taking a bit longer than it should. I’ll work to document what I’m trying in this post to help others…

  • Hannibal Finale

    Hannibal Finale

    This past season of Hannibal was… different. This post may contain spoilers so read at your own risk. But it probably doesn’t contain much.

  • I lost my camera in Japan 🙁

    I lost my Sony RX100 M3 in Japan today :(. I left it on the train from Kansai International Airport when I transferred to a slightly faster (blue) train at Izumisano station I believe. On the camera is a picture of my passport, which features a really bad picture of me. If you find my…

  • Coffee Fails

    Just thought I’d share a bit of my absent mindedness with coffee in the morning. Yesterday I poured water in my coffee grinder and today I didn’t have the grinder assembled properly so I had to clean out beans from where they didn’t belong. I must dislike coffee grinders.

  • Paneer (Indian Cheese)

    I’m addicted to Sag Paneer from a local Indian place called Bollywood #3 in Westlake, CA. Today I decided to try my hand at making paneer that I’ll eventually use to make some Sag Panneer at home. I followed these general guidelines in the video below. I ended up using: 1/4 cup of lemon juice…

  • Tree of Life

    Want to test your home theater? I recommend you check out Tree of Life for some of the amazing visuals and sound. Your room should be shaking during the creation scenes and your eyes should pop out when you see the trees. Just trust me and check it out on Netflix.
