the problem i have with blue-ray, is the fact that there is only one difference between them and HD dvd's. that being the extended menus.

for example, if you take 2 high def tv's, same name and brand, and play the same movie on both, one being blue-ray the other being HD you will not be able to see a visual difference.  the reason for this is because the human eye can not see in the level of detail that blue-ray provides.

and that is the reason i do not, nor will i own blue-ray movies, it is wasted money.

You guys get to pick the rant fodder.

now see i thought i was going to get in on the ground floor of a great new web idea that was going to make me millions (for the idea mind you not the actual building/managing work) therefore affording me the luxury of having every ingredient i would ever need in my cupboard at all times and thusly not ever needing such a web site.  and you have taken the lazy rout by looking for an existing site that already does the job and has theoretically already made its creator (or rather the person who originally had the idea because we all know the creators of such sites don't make jack) his slash her millions. 

i don't know what to say axel..........i simply don't know what to say.   You've cost me millions of potential dollars that i will never see.  There goes my hopes for being the first on my block to own a Motorola Xoom.

I hope you don't mind, but I'm sure Tiracakes would love to join in on the discussion next time she's down here.  She may know of a few other sites that are like that.  Of course she is an amazing chef on her own, but it never hurts to look for new ideas.

I've often thought the same thing, and recently have been looking at supercook.com as a possible fill for that niche.  I'd found other sites that supposedly did the same thing, but really just took one or two things you listed and found recipes to base those off of.  Fine if you're willing to rush out to the store everyday for five ingredients to match those two, but not what we were after.

My experience so far is generally positive.  As you add to the list of "stuff you have", it generates a list of recipes.  It also tacks on at the end of the list other recipes that you could make if you had one or two other ingredients, so that I don't miss out on a delicious chowder, just because I was out of milk.

As I was keying in ingredients, it also asked me if I had certain ingredients down below that it knew would open up new recipes for me.  I looked at it and said "why yes, I do have olive oil", and with a click, it was added to my electronic pantry, widening my recipe selection.  It can also generate a "shopping list" of things that will give me the most to work with based on what I already have.  Once I have my pantry filled, I can click on ingredients in there to tell it "I want a recipe that definitely uses this", for if I'm craving chicken or the eggs are starting to spoil.

On the negative side, it wasn't always perfectly accurate.  The recipes all come from other sites, so when I told it that I had chicken breasts in my freezer, it gave me a recipe that called for chicken sausage.  Not a total downer.  I'd rather it be a little too vague than lock me out of choices, because I had chicken breast strips and not fillets.

More thoughts as I actually get to using it.

after looking in the cupboard at the minimal amount of ingredients and wondering what i could make with this obscure collection of simple ingredients and random spices i thought what if there was a web site that allowed me to input the ingredients i had and search for recipies that only required those recipies. 

Axle...get on it

Greetings and Happy New Years Attacked by Gorillas.  I know it's been a while since I posted anything but I'm hoping to change that (New Year’s Resolution).  Anyway, Psycho, a few other guys, and myself decided to head to the Norva last night to see an up and coming local band the Fighting Jamesons.  The Front man and lead guitar is Mike Powers from the Mike and Bob Show.  I work with the Bass Player and pretty much everyone is pretty down to Earth.  They have an amazing fiddle player also. 

They are a self described Irish Metal band and mostly play covers of Flogging Molly and Drop Kick Murphys.  From what I saw yesterday they have a lot of talent.  I'm hoping to see a couple more of their shows coming up, especially when they start writing their own stuff. 

The whole night was pretty awesome with the exception of having to pay $6 for a plastic cup of beer.  Even with the insane prices in Japan, $8 still got me an entire bottle.

Again, happy New Years everyone.  If you are interested check out their website:  http://www.thefightingjamesons.com

The theme song is super-catchy.  I don't remember the cartoon, but I know the theme was awesome in that 1980s sort of way.
