I might have just vacuumed-sealed 2kg of cocoa butter. I wonder if that will work out well when time comes to use it.

I don't like buying a game which says available on Linux and then does not work. However in that case, with such a picture to tell me so, I ain't even mad.

There, first rocket launched (in peaceful mode - hence lack of walls).
Edit: and a zoomable render: http://pierre.palats.com/train11/  (it is a bit buggy).

That is a really nice way to dig into parallellism related issues - and the realisation is really good.
 
If you want to playfully figure out why concurrency is a lie hard, this game is for you.
Slay dragons, learn concurrency! Play the cunning Scheduler, exploit flawed programs and defeat the armies of the Parallel Wizard.

I haven't posted chocolate picture in a while :)

Today, I made chocolate with pistachios. I slightly roasted the pistachios in the oven, though I think they should have stayed a bit more.

I've used cocoa butter & pure cocoa powder from https://www.schwarzenbach.ch/ , an old Zurich institution for coffee and beans. Result is quite good - I quite like Schwarzenbach chocolate which is quite strong and tasty.

Also, doing the Mycryo-tempering around 35C instead of 34C seems to yield better results (less grainy aspect).

What is your end goal here, because i'm looking at your progress... and it seems clear that you could end up with world domination.

Command of the day, don't try it at home:
  dmraid -E -r /dev/sda

I was trying to install a basic ubuntu on an old (windows) PC. It was somehow not seeing /dev/sda in the installer - fdisk knew about it, but it was not an option to install on it.

I tried switching to AHCI in the bios and even nuking the beginning of the disk with dd & /dev/zero.

But it seems that there was somehow some trace of some md setup, thus hiding silently the disk from the installer. Nuking that made everything work fine from there.

This time, this is chocolate with lemon zest and poppy seed. Though in practice it seems we need bigger doses as I mostly don't feel them in the chocolate (except for a small aftertaste of lemon).

Also, silicon mould is less convenient than polycarbonate mould.

Today's experiment was chocolate with rum. It turns out - much to my surprise - that it is possible to have a lot of rum (aka, too much) while still having a chocolate which holds itself.

In practice, I added a mix of coconut flakes (15g) and rum (1 tbs) to the chocolate (100g tablet). The taste of rum is quite strong, and the coconut is mostly absent.

Why do I have the feeling it would not be with some random skinny blonde?
Fine, I'll let +Vincent Palatin hold the fort :-/

Every summer when tourists start wandering about in other countries there will be stories about them getting attacked by cows. And for some reason most of these stories come from Switzerland.

We all know about the fighting cows from Valais.

I might have accumulated a few too many hard drives.
(from 540M to 250G apparently, on the destruction path)

Ah, damn I had forgotten you could change the geometry as well. I don't miss those times. At all.

I made a Story with my peanut butter chocolates (because I'm very happy of how these turned out ;) ). I like it. It has somewhat less details than the blog post on http://coincuisine.pasithee.fr/2016/01/11/chocolats-au-beurre-de-cacahuete-chocolates-filled-with-peanut-butter/, but as a synthetic food-porn oriented media, there's potential :)

Today's experiment is a bigger chocolat tablet. I've doubled the amount - so 100g cocoa buttter, 80g cocoa, 26g sugar.

There are roasted whole almonds in it - that was the reason of making a bigger tablet, so they would fit. In practice, I've used 45g of almonds, but I could have used a lot more as it holds extremely well.

I've used "vergoise" as sugar, a kind of crystallized sugar - it gives a kind of crunchy feeling which is nice (though it makes the chocolate fell less sugary overall).

Also, I've used a basic ceramic dish as mold. I had to hit it quite strongly for the chocolate to leave it, but that worked out :)

Interestingly, given that the mold was flat without any motif, we see much more how the crystallisation is not uniform - center is shiny, sides far less so.

Bonne idée les noix - par contre méfiance, il y a tres peu de sucre, donc c'est pas forcément du gout de tout le monde :p
