I wonder where I can fill this growler with tasty tasty beer?

+stephane matis This is another kickstarter. 
It's never tough to drink fresh beer, but it can be tough to keep it fresh after opening a growler. This Mini CO2 Regulator promises to keep things fresh, utilizing an easy to replace food grade CO2 cartridge that slides...

May not be as pretty, but you'll have to deal with borrowing a ManCan. I've got 5 of them coming...  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mancanbeer/mancan-put-a-brewery-in-your-fridge-not-a-growler?ref=nav_search

Today I decided to test my trangia stove to see how much fuel I should bring on a canoe trip.

A lot of the dehydrated foods that I have requires 2 cups of boiling water. So with that in mind I decided how much fuel will be required to boil the water without too much waste.

My first and only attempt was to use 20ml of fuel. After 3mins the water was at 160f. After 5mins it was at 205f. At 6mins it was at a boil.

Since it burns very cleanly it was very hard to determine exactly when the fuel ran out. But after 8mins, I'm pretty certain that the stove was bone dry

Nice. Remember water temperature and wind will affect boil times, too.

After watching the imitation game, I decided to re-run Simon Singh "The Code Book: for i think may be my third time. It is a wonderful book that is so well written. Wished I had Mr. Singh as a science / math teacher in high school.

Let me know if you want to borrow my copy. 
The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography: Simon Singh: 9780385495325: Books - Amazon.ca

Nice little howto to use gmail as a mail relay with postfix.
When your linux box needs to send email (e.g., mail sent by a webpage, cron job output, etc), postfix can normally send the email directly to the recipient. However, if your ISP blocks port 25 outbound, or you want to keep a nice log of all outgoing messages, or want replies to arrive in your ...

My kids are slowly getting into RPG's. Sharing dice is fine for awhile but soon we all want our "own" set. I decided to get a pound of dice from Wizkids. I got 8 full sets and a bunch of partial set which are missing a d12. Great value for a family. We now have so  many sets that we can give a set away when we introduce RPG to their friends.

Side Note. This was delivered on Sunday! Blew my mind.

Canada Post? I saw them driving around yesterday and was shocked!

On the 8 sets, thats awesome. Just hopefully no one wants to be a wizard. I think that thats the RPG equivalent of being a hockey goalie. "You need HOW MANY d6s?"

Another great font cheat sheet.
 
"Make it pop!" "Make it more modern!" This graphic translates it all into plain--if sometimes funny--English.

I could not stop laughing when I read the name of the store. There was a skit on humble and Fred that made fun of it. I always thought that they made it up.

At the Ontario science centre

It is the start of the myth busters exhibit. Seeing the 2cv bike conversion make you realize how much courage they had to ride it. Nuts

So i've gotten the t-shirt bug again. After buying an awesome mashup of Joy Division and Spider-Man, I just bought this mashup of Banksy and Star Wars.

Here is what I looked like after playing some touch football with Mike, Brendan and Alexander. There was a 4' x4' patch of mud. Guess where I fell down after my son tackled me. 

My body is hurting today.

Another lifetime ago, I used to downhill ski. I was good enough to go down double diamond runs without embarrassing myself but I never thought of myself as a great skier. 

Since moving to Toronto, I haven't even put on a pair of skis. But sometimes I see something that makes me wish I could do it again. 

This is one of these moments. OMG. Scariest thing I saw in awhile. No room for error. 
OMG! Hold on and watch this incredible bit of skiing through a crazy narrow slot.
