My friend Niamh Shields (a food superhero) has a bacon kickstarter. I defy you to read the page at the link without dribbling just a little bit. Please go ahead and back her: I really want a book come February!
I want to write a BACON cookbook. But not as you know it. Quirky, delicious, fun. Bacon as you have never thought possible. But hoped.

Some folks' marketing strategy is just bizarre. I just got this email at my Raspberry Pi address:


Hello,

I am contacting you on the behalf of [Name Redacted] Buildings about opportunities to write for your site. Because we are specialized in buildings, we would be able to provide high-quality content in that realm, but because we are focusing on becoming a more web centric company, we would be able to write on effective marketing strategies and social media. If you would like for us to write for your site, let us know how long you would like the posts to be and other constraints.

You can reach me through this e-mail. I look forward to working with you.

--

Buildings and marketing and social media! I hope they're not as bad at buildings as they are at the other two.

The lady who owned the cattery my parents used when I was a kid had her entire ear bitten off by a pet raccoon. In Bedfordshire. Which makes me suspect that what happens in the linked article is inadvisable.
Despite what the fashion industry says, manufacturing a suit of feral raccoons is not overly complicated.

New blogpost at Gastronomy Domine. A few words about why things are a bit quiet at GD while I'm working on Raspberry Pi, while I eat my way through a hamper from Forman and Field that's bound to make you very, very jealous. And hungry.

I used to play in an orchestra with Giles in the 1990s, where he tootled mightily on the Logical Bassoon, a device he'd invented in the 1960s. I did not know the thing about his penis, but I am awed on discovering it.

Things that jar after living in a hotel for a bit:

The light switches. There are about six in here (I may not have found all of them yet), and none of them does what you think it will.

The windows. I am not planning on jumping out of one, but may be driven to it by the lack of fresh air if they continue to put anti-opening devices on them.

The bathplug. It's operated via a complicated system of levers and toggles. And it doesn't work. What happened to a bung on a string?

Eight-dollar bottles of Evian in the minibar.

No cats.

It's something called American Cheese Month. I had not noticed until now, largely because I've been eating pretty much nothing but Japanese and Vietnamese food (with a quick outing to a Malaysian restaurant the other day) - apparently, there are more sushi restaurants than McDonalds in this part of Orange County. My sort of place.

Probably inelegant to +1 something I wrote myself, but this news means I actually get to sit back and enjoy Easter, so I'm going with it.

Hi +Liz Upton I've been trying to contact you re. demo'ing to the National Nuclear Laboratory about using the Pi in the robotics simulation labs. Do you have any one available in Manchester next week (March 20) to attend a conference and meet my boss?

One of the Raspberry Pi mods sent me this article about the management of difficult people in open-source projects today. It's a refreshing read after a morning spent goggling in horror at what the folks on Slashdot have to say.

Slashdot’s community is a bit large to influence as far as instilling politeness, etc., goes. :-) I realise you have to descend to the lower circles to respond to intelligent questions but don’t worry about rebutting too much drivel; most of us have always read /. comments at +5 to just learn from nothing but the best car analogies and so won’t see the dross.

It's probably considered impolite to eat a giant bowl of garlic noodles just before getting onto a plane, isn't it?

After a quick google about garlic on planes... http://www.wellness.com/workplace/-immunity-on-the-plane-for-the-business-traveler
Sounds sensible to go for the garlic

Shooting Fish In The Barrel, Why Is It That? (5:44am)

Yes, I know you've probably seen this already. But on the off-chance you haven't, prepare to laugh like a drain.

I actually didn't know that.
"I put the cake in a barrel. And I shoot it. And then I eat it."
OMG :D

Of course, the issue with staying in countries that have WHOLE MONTHS CELEBRATING CHEESE revolves (some might say orbits) around the swollen waistline. Family decision has been taken to eat out a maximum of once a week if we move out here.

Raspberry Pi. And fountain pens. And cooking.

Extraordinarily ordinary, particularly given the price. Woolly tomato salad, questionably fresh tuna and sea bass, pre-bought sauces and a surprisingly meat-heavy menu for a seafood restaurant - it feels a little as if getting an early start in at the fish market in the morning is a bit too much like hard work for these guys.
