Props to Lifehacker’s own Nick Douglas for stumbling across this one — something I’ve always known, but didn’t realise I should articulate to the world. Here’s the tiny hack, as discussed on Reddit a few days ago: When you’re looking for free software around the web, resist the urge to Google (or your search engine of choice) the word “free.”
Cheap shaker parmesan is not Parmigiano-Reggiano. The “real stuff” is nutty, slightly fruity and filled with savoury, crunchy crystals. It’s a luxury cheese, a fancy boy cheese, a cheese you should enjoy in fluffy piles atop the finest of pasta. The cheese that comes in a green shaker is not Parmigiano-Reggiano, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth having around.
I have nothing against ugly food. In fact, some ugly food is the most delicious. But if you’re pot lucking, dinner partying, or sharing photos, sometimes it’s nice to make things a little bit pretty (and incidentally more delicious) and the best garnishes are the ones that last weeks without going bad, have multiple uses, and don’t demand too much from your wallet.
These days, a digital thermometer is up there with a good knife on the list of indispensable kitchen tools, but you never hear anyone recommend their analogue predecessors. That’s too bad: old-school thermometers do the exact same job for a fraction of the price.
Hello, my babes, and welcome back to Will It Sous Vide?, the column where I usually make whatever you want me to with my immersion circulator. This week we're turning our collective consciousness to one of my favourite taco fixings: juicy, tender, crispy carnitas.
Westworld returns to Australian screens today, April 23. As the Australian Government continues to come down on piracy sites, you might be looking for a cheap, legal way to watch. Just like we did with Game of Thrones, we've worked out the most cost-effective option: You can get the series for free, if you're willing to wait - or, you can split the difference with a mate and watch live for a cool $20.
In general, I don't use nonstick cookware, but there are some instances -- such as cooking the perfect over-easy egg, omelettes and thin pancakes -- where nothing else will do. I do not, however, recommend spending a ton of money on one.
MPAA 1: IsoHunt 0. Major bit torrent and P2P index site IsoHunt has announced that it has disabled US users from accessing its trackers, due to legal pressure being applied by American movie industry group, the MPAA.
This announcement went up on IsoHunt's site yesterday:
"As of earlier today, we have disabled access from users in the US to our trackers, until further notice. This goes for ALL trackers (torrentbox, podtropolis) we run. This is due to the US's hostility towards P2P technologies, and we feel with our current lawsuit brought by the MPAA, we can no longer ensure your security and privacy in the US. So, if you're outside the US, you may notice less peers. We encourage you to add other public, unhampered trackers to torrents you post, in addition to Torrentbox and Podtropolis's trackers."
Blogger Dumb Little Man says that being ambidextrous with the mouse can increase your brain power: By switching the side of your mouse-pad you will force yourself to use your non-dominant hand. This, in turn, will stimulate the neural connections between the right and left hemispheres on your brain. Scientific research confirmed that people that use both hands equally have 10% more nerve fibers joining the two sides of the brain. Mousing "goofy" can also help you stop RSI. Here's how to train yourself to mouse with the other hand.
3 Easy Ways to Improve Your Brain Power
Webapp TwitterNotes separates notes to yourself from all the other chatter on Twitter. Simply log on to Twitter and type a note to yourself prefixed by the + sign, and check TwitterNotes to retrieve it later. Organise your TwitterNotes with tags by surrounding tag words in the tweet with asterisks, or listing tags at the end of the tweet. For people who love and live on Twitter, this a great way to separate notes to self from other status messages and conversation. If you're looking for a scheduled solution or a way to get consistent reminders, you can try the Twitter timer or Remember the Milk. Otherwise, TwitterNotes should do wonders for those who might be, ahem, tweeting during class or a business meeting.
