A great read for any home bartender enthusiasts. An exploration of the best/most practical way of storing opened vermouth.

Something I didn't know when first starting out was that vermouth could go bad, along with other low ABV liquors. This Serious Eats article explores several different practical ways of trying to extend its shelf life.

TL;DR: just go ahead and store the opened bottle in the fridge if you plan to finish it within a month or two. If it might sit for longer than that consider purging the air out of it with some inert gas, like the kind popularly used for wine storage.

Should you put your vermouth in the fridge? Should you try using a wine-saver system or rebottling into smaller bottles? I put a few vermouth-storage methods to the test to figure out the best way to make that bottle last.

So looks like +AdBlock has joined +Adblock Plus in allowing "acceptable ads" to be shown by default. Also the owner of #adblock  has sold his company. I wonder to whom.

Water on Mars
With all the Android/Google news leaks today, I think this might have gotten a bit buried. This is amazing news. Can't wait for that next scheduled rover in 2020 now.
 
Breaking News: NASA says it has evidence that water -- glorious, life-sustaining, liquid water -- is on Mars.

And here we have a way to simulate the Android system killing a background process. This would be useful for testing your app in situations that mimic low memory pressure, where your app might be killed in the background.

adb shell am kill <package_name>

This can also be done through Eclipse's DDMS "perspective" by simply stopping the process, but that only works for processes that you're debugging.

I know the Nexus 6P was just announced, but if anyone is trying to compare the cameras of a Moto X Pure/Style vs a Samsung S6 Edge, this video comparison is pretty useful.

I've somehow gone this long without really knowing the difference between these. Strangely this forum post explains it better than the google ads developer site does.

So... is this for real or a satire article like The Onion?

Interesting move LG. Would be a good phone for my parents if it comes to the US.

Go star this, people. Show Google you want the option to have the ticker back if you find Heads-Up/Peek notifications too intrusive.

Good selection of ice cream flavors and many many toppings if that's your thing. Their standard order is an ice cream sandwich but you can also get normal scoops or other things like shakes, sundaes, and "ice cream tacos". The price is fair at $2.49 for a scoop, $3.49 for two scoops, and $3.99 for an ice cream sandwich. Line moves quick; good for a quick fix.

Decent casual dining Japanese spot. It's the 'order at register' and 'seat yourself' type. Most of the menu is sub $10 so prices are decent. Occupancy was light on the Sunday night I went (around 8pm) so service was fairly quick. They accept credit card now. I had the Salmon Sashimi Bowl (~$9.95) and the Beef Sukiyaki Udon (~$7.50). The salmon was fresh and tasty. No fishiness at all. A great dish. The Beef Sukiyaki Udon was okay. The beef portion was quite small. It's a very forgetful dish; I would not order it again. Overall a nice place to grab a casual bite.

Update: (6/2014) Apparently this place is closed now. Secret 1920s speakeasy here in the OC?! This place is pretty cool and quite a gem especially being located in the OC. One would not expect to find a place like this here. The decor is awesome and classy. The drinks are good and food is decent. The main attraction has to be the "fake" gambling they have set up though! You can have fun playing blackjack or even craps on mini tables they have setup. You "buy in" for about $10 to get some chips and an account on their website where they can track you and your friends to see who has the most chips. Fun environment and don't be surprised to see people in straight up 1920s attire here. I came with a large group and we all decked out in the old school wear, fedoras and all. You'll need to know the password for the day to get in. You can check their Facebook page to find it.

I really enjoy this place for dim sum. Came on a Thursday around 1pm; no wait and plenty of open tables. Traditional style dim sum with carts rolling around, though you can also order from a waiter. Beef tripe is cooked wonderfully with great flavor and texture. The pork ribs has a nice mix of fat and meat. The "footballs" have a great chewy texture and a decent amount of filling too. The Siu Mai has a good portions of shrimp, pork, and mushrooms. The baked BBQ pork buns have just enough glaze, not too overwhelming. The shrimp and beef noodle rolls have good meat portions as well, although I wish the noodle skins were thinner (though the thickness is typical for dim sum in the US). I'd definitely come back for dim sum. People can be very opinionated about Cantonese food and especially dim sum. For what it's worth I am American born but my parents and much of my family are from China/HK. We all enjoy this place.

Pretty typical Asian market in terms of cleanliness (i.e. not very). Good selection of vegetables and produce. They have a very large butcher section with a large selection of meats and live seafood. But if you're looking for prepackaged meats or thin cuts like for hot pot this is definitely not the place to go.

Food is the same as the other locations as far as I can tell. This spot has more seating than the others and has a nice combination of indoor/outdoor seats. There usually isn't too much of a wait. Food is good if you enjoy waffles. They are light and crispy. The savory dishes are all pretty good, though some of them can be a bit pricey compared to others. The sausage/egg sandwich is a pretty good breakfast/brunch choice. Philly cheesesteak had some quality ingredients. Overall a good place to go once in a while or take a friend from out of town, but I wouldn't go on the norm.
