SALT POTATOES, BITCHES!

Not only is there a hour long Good Eats special, but Alton made Salt Potatoes! For the Tivo’ed among us, this special is not caught by your average Good Eats season pass, but if you search for “Good Eats” you will see the title “Good Eats: Eat This Rock” in the listing. For the Upstate New York among us, Alton gives props to Onondaga. He also explains the Salt Evaporators outside of SF.

  1. I drive past those salt evaporators all the time (just did last night), and man do they smell bad. Not as bad as the Purdue chicken plant, though. Or Newark.

    Also now I really want salt potatoes.

      1. Bah, I prefer a recipe’s that just add salt until no more salt will dissolve in the boiling water. I’m usre it’s the same, I just think its a cooler set of instructions.

    1. I mailed you but it bounced. Here is what I said:

      Matt,

      I’d love it if you were interested in taking over AliveJournal. I don’t know what help, if any, you need from me in getting rolling (if you haven’t already),
      but I’ll do my best to try and support you (I haven’t even glanced at that code in years at this point).

      I branched the code from Simon Huet’s client after a period where he stopped working on his (and I don’t believe he ever resumed). The code is GPL’ed, so
      you are going to be stuck with that license if it matters to you (I prefer BSD-style, but it was Simon’s choice, obviously). If you aren’t a GPL-fan,
      you’d have to talk to Simon and myself about relicensing it, although I probably wouldn’t care too much…

      I source-controlled the code in a private Perforce repo at Computer Science House (www.csh.rit.edu), but you might want to take the source tarball I have up on BeBits and compare notes with the various people who have done small
      maintenance work on the client. Sergei Dolgov, for instance, has a UTF-8 version of the client here: http://www.bebits.com/app/2843

      If you are serious about this, we can talk about reassigning the AliveJournal LJ account and the BeBits project to you.

      Let me know what you need from me.

      1. Yeah, I’m serious. I use BeOS daily. I have a BeBox, Mac and an intel box running it. Though I just signed up for LiveJournal today, I’ve been Blogging on Blurty since the beginning of the year. I use the BeOS client exclusively at home (I have no option but to use Semagic at work.) I originally took Sergei’s version of the code and got it to compile on my BeBox ages ago. A PowerPC version will be released too.

        I’m itching to add multiple server support (not even semagic does that in the version I have) because I want to use both Blogs, even though they are on different providers. (One is a private rant, the other will be my more public face.) I’d also like to beef up the UI etc (simple stuff at the moment, like getting the BMenuFields to display the selected item ;-) But it’s something I’d get motivated to do because I actually use it!

        I have perforce installed (I use it for personal source control at work) so that is no problem. I’ve already got Sergei’s source.

        License-wise, I’m not too worried. I don’t beleive it will be a problem at all.

        Ah, for the record… its @interalpha.co.uk … sorry, my typo!!

        Matt
