I didn’t cook Friday or Saturday. We ate leftover fried chicken on Friday and went out to eat on Saturday. Sunday, I made soft shelled crab and a light salad with Giardiniera and Feta cheese. I shared my giardiniera recipe...

Unleash the Hounds

Odd that in the same week we have very differing aspects of the value of social media and both relate to emergency situations. During the current crisis in Britain, social media is actively used to promote, invite and expand the...

Measuring Broadband America

The report “Measuring Broadband America” by the FCC is an exercise in navel gazing. Previously, I have pointed out that it is important to analyze availability, speed and price or ASP. This report looks only at speed which in the...

Follow Me on Tweeter

Yesterday Texas Governor Rick Perry implored attendees at Right Online, a conference for conservative bloggers and social networkers, to follow him on “Tweeter”. Aside from the incorrect naming of the site, it is indeed interesting that nearly every candidate running...

Mashups Seem to be Working

Mashups Seem to be Working Okay so I didn’t cook a lot this weekend. Friday was a leftover fried chicken for my wife and leftover prime rib for me. They were accompanied by a Caesar salad. Saturday was salmon and...

You say Tomato and I say Get the Heck Out of My Phone

I am often asked about my taste for fast food. Well Friday I did have fried chicken from Pollo Campero. Southern fried chicken will always be my favorite, but this Latin version is very good. I made an heirloom tomato...

A Revealing Bite of the Apple

Apple faces new scrutiny over the hidden application that stores information about where its phones go every day. Perhaps, I am the only one that gets it but Apple was not trying to track the user, rather some genius in...

Fill and Keep

Previously, I mentioned that I had a TEC grill for nearly thirteen years before replacing it two weeks ago. One thing my new grill did not have was an infrared burner capable of 1500oF for searing beef, lamb and other...

More on the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

In general, I have been too busy or disinterested to ever read a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). I can now say, “That was a mistake.” It is well worth the effort to read relevant parts of the NPRM just...

Holy Massive Bureaucratic Report IP Man!

Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking adopted February 8, 2011 and released February 9, 2011 is one gigantic tome. Even the rules regarding commenting require a moment or two of thought, check out the following: Comment...

FCC Floundering May Be Over

My new grill arrived on Friday. Previously I was cooking on a TEC grill that could reach temperatures of greater than 1500oF. Impressive but after 13 years of pretty heavy usage, it was time to replace it. I bought the...

Soaring with Turkeys and Eagles

Friday is nearly always a casual dining day and last Friday was no different. I made classic Reuben sandwiches for dinner using my homemade pastrami and corned beef. Loved it! Saturday we tried out a new Indian restaurant that opened...

Playing Chicken with Net Neutrality

What a weekend for food. On Friday, I made Philly cheese steak sandwiches with thinly sliced rib eye steak, onions, bell peppers and Swiss cheese. Saturday was a smash with Italian Chicken Cacciatore. I make it with chicken thighs for...

Pulled Plug and Pork

The weekend was a short one with me having to travel on Sunday. I considered not having a recipe this morning but that would have been wrong. Friday night we had Chinese takeout. Surprise! Yes sometimes we order in. Saturday,...

Zero, Six, 6940

It seems that even when IP communications gets a mentioned in the State of the Union address, it is only as a prop for some other thing. The 2011 State of the Union address had 6940 words, 6 mentions of...

Going Dutch

Sushi Friday night and French to celebrate our anniversary on Saturday left few options for an original recipe this weekend. Therefore, one of two dishes made on Sunday would have to succeed. The leading option was a meaty pasta entrée...

ReVeal

I didn’t cook this weekend until Sunday. And deciding what was the recipe of the week was a bit difficult as a result. I made Osso Buco with roasted potatoes, cabbage and cheesy rolls. Each was delicious. The osso buco...

The FCC Capitulates on Network Neutrality

As expected the FCC issued new rules to secure an open internet. They are summarized as follows: 1.       Internet service providers (ISPs) must provide services in a transparent manner by disclosing their network management practices and performance characteristics. 2.       ISPs...

Broadband is not Scarce

The latest FCC report on the state of broadband in the US labels broadband as “scarce”. That is hardly the case. Several good things have come from the FCC this year regarding broadband. First, it was useful to announce a...

What does this have to do with Broadvox?

It has been more than two years since I began writing this blog so I was a little surprised that the discussion regarding Level 3 and Comcast merited a “what does this have to do with Broadvox?" response. Just as...

Jambalaya and a Movie

Friday evening I made pan seared steaks. They were very good seasoned with my white seasoning mixture which developed a great browned crust quickly. Saturday, was cheese fries for my wife and leftover chili for me. However, I was looking...

Pancakes and a Hopping Good Time

Veal Valdostana and Traffic Pumping Update

I didn't cook this weekend as we spent the time in New York City. It's an eating vacation. Walking and window shopping are interrupted by dining adventures both planned and serendipitous. Day one was at the Stage Deli across...
