Might as well get the group started up with some content.
This entire site feels like it was designed in a bubble by graphic designers.

The design is atrocious looking, and buggy, but yet I'm captivated--very different than my initial reaction.

I like the look of "both", probably with a mix of brown and granulated, probably chilled for 24 hours.
 
How to make a perfect chocolate chip cookie, any way you like it. Personally, I'm a fan of both baking soda and baking powder..

I'm pretty disappointed in Vistaprint's color correctness. They maintain that the color in their editor is "black," but it's a clearly a charcoal when printed, and they blame the images I uploaded (which were CMYK, definitely black) for not matching. Your "black" doesn't meet printing industry standards, +Vistaprint. Don't blame me when your example shows it looking perfect, but your printer prints something that doesn't match. If you show a result to someone and ask if it looks right, and then ship something that looks different, there's a problem with your printing, not with your customer.

After analyzing the issue, I've figured out why it happened, and it's this: Vistaprint uses different blacks. "True black," which appears darker, is CMYK(75,68,67,90). VistaPrint uses a "false black" when printing which appears lighter CMYK(0,0,0,100). Though truly absent of color, it appears a charcoal color next to true blacks, which with more blue appear on printing to be darker. Regardless of this, their preview online showed the colors next to each other to be identical, which was clearly not the case.

Why does their online preview differ? Their online preview, being a web tool, uses RGB(0,0,0). RGB(0,0,0) is true black in the printing definition, which is CMYK(75,68,67,90). But when they print it they use CMYK(0,0,0,100) which is RGB(35,31,32) - so their printing colors do not match their design colors. This is a serious issue. I will not order from them unless they can resolve this in the future.

Fix your stuff, Vistaprint. Your design should match your result. That is why your customer got a refund today. They were not mistaken, your prints do not match your designs. Adjust your editor or adjust your printing.

To summarize it in a simple way, I offer this parable:

A man walks into a cake shop. He says "I want a yellow cake. I want it in this shade." He holds out a swatch with yellow.

The baker says "We can do that. Let us make up a batch of frosting real quick and dye it to match." He makes a batch of frosting. It exactly matches the swatch. "The cake will be exactly this color," the baker says, "You can pick it up on Thursday."

"Excellent." The man returns on Thursday. "I am ready to pick up the cake I ordered."

"Here it is," the baker says. He hands over a distinctly orange cake.

"That is an orange cake. You said you would match this color," the man complains.

The baker replies, "Yes, but you were wearing glasses when you ordered it. It may appear different now."

"Yes, I was wearing glasses, but you said you would match this swatch exactly, which I can see at this moment is very different." He holds out the swatch, which is quite a different shade.

You can't blame the customer for this. You have to blame the baker for not delivering on his promise.

No matter how much I clean the Glass display, I've got an big blue dot on the screen now. Should I call Glass support? Anyone seen anything like this?

This place has 3 rifles, 1 shotgun, and 7 handguns for sale. The owner proudly proclaims he is a "weapons expert" while chewing with his mouth open. (Seriously, he didn't stop eating and smacking around food in his mouth the entire time I was there.) He twice called himself a "weapons exper," while he corrected me about something. Which he was wrong about. This guy claimed that 7.62x39 was developed by the Germans (it was developed by the Soviets) and is a shortened .308 caliber round (it's .310 in diameter, it's a different bullet even), and is much better in an AR15 than .308 is in an AR10 because "the AR10 cracks after 3000 rounds." This guy was so full of crap. His advice is probably dangerous. I do not recommend his shop. Sadly, he claims to train a lot of police in the area (he pointed this out one of the times he called himself a "weapons expert" while loudly eating a fig newton). I'm not sure if this is true, but it's a sad thing if it is. His prices were just okay (standard MSRP), and the shop was almost empty of merchandise. You'd probably be better off driving to Manchester or Hookset to one of the several gun shops in that area. Rileys, Shooter's Outpost, Chester Arms, ACME Armament all have done good by me in the past and have knowledgeable staff and good prices. Because you can go twenty minutes to avoid bad advice, rude service, and mediocre prices, I highly recommend avoiding this seller.

Amazing frites, but very expensive. Edit: and out of business.
