Blinky wasn't as well respected as you think, at least in the group
I remember him (I think it was alt.usenet.readers and servers).
Though I didn't disagree with him on his opinion of Deja-Google, but
many of the 'facts' he presented were simply wrong and he refused to
acknowledge them.

Never saw any food photos. He never posted to alt.binaries.food
that I remember.


Blinky represented his opinions, coupled with enough knowledge of the
subject, to argue with conviction. I don't remember him as a Luddite,
but I could be wrong. I occasionally posted to groups in favor or
opposition to him. It would probably only have been in the Mac groups
(not likely), the web design groups (likely) and certainly here.
I distinctly remember commenting on some okra that he took a picture of
just before he died. I have never frequented ABF. I do remember him
commenting on how sick he was in some group just before he died with
what he thought was the flu. He died alone.
My memories are fragile, but I was always a year older than he was, so
I win. His posts were always interesting to me.

David (dsi1) is just representing Blinky as being a luddite in the
previous message because Blinky hated Google Groupers and their
defective reading/posting interface (which is even worse now).
David thinks anybody who doesn't worship Google is a luddite.

It is funny, though, that he remembers being so butthurt by Blinky's
comments about the Google news interface and its users that David so
dearly worships. That was .. what... 10+ years ago? It definitely
made a lasting impression on him, as you noted.

It's the past that most of the anti-GGers have forgotten about. That's the breaks.

I'm not mistaken at all. My mother used to have an egg cooker, as I
implied in a previous post. I had used it a couple times and was
glad when I accidentally dropped it on the floor and broke it. As
it wasn't taking up valuable counter space and I didn't have to drag
it out of the cupboard when she needed it. Using the egg cooker is
no more convenient than using a pan. And the pan is infinitely more
useful.

I think we can call this argument over, if not a truce.

-sw

I'll agree to a truce, with a couple final points: it takes a lot more
water to boil eggs on top the stove, and a pot to do it with takes up
more space in a cupboard than an egg cooker. Second, it takes a lot
more energy to boil a pot of water than it does for a cooker to do its
thing.

There, I'm finished. ;-)

If you had an automatic rice cooker you could probably do the same thing.
Use a steamer basket and the same amount of water. It is unfortunate that
my daughter threw out my beautiful rice cooker else I would be steaming
eggs at this very moment.


I much prefer an ordinary pot for cooking rice... and I can use the
same pot to boil eggs, and I do... that 2 qt Farberware pot is the
only pot that lives on my stove... that one pot is used to cook many
other things.

BTW, I can't only read a small portion of your's and nancy2's posts...
one day yoose may fix your word wrap... how ironic that yoose are
touting automatic cookery.


Of course you can boil eggs in an automatic rice cooker. I've done that. My
suggestion is to steam the eggs instead of boiling them. When the measured
quantity of water is gone, the cooker turns off or goes into the keep warm
mode.

The real irony is that you want me to revert back to computing of the 90's
so that you can read my posts easier. I cannot do that because Windows
computing is like the dark age for me. It's all like a very bad dream and
now I have awoken.

OTOH, I am trying to set up an old Dell notebook to run propitiatory Windows
dino-ware. The hardware on this thing is pretty much overwhelmed by Windows.
With the original OS installed, I got 4.7 GB left on the 30 GB drive. This
means that I don't have enough room on the drive to do the security and
Windows update. Jeepers! I can't believe they sold computers like this. The
good news is that this computer might be teal in color. Very hip!

Default egg cooker question

Sheldon, why are you complaining again about my not quoting? It has been explained
several times why that isn't possible with an original iPad, like I use most of the time,
and I always try to refer to the person to whom I am replying....there is no reason to
complain about my most recent post, which I addressed to you! What kind of reading
comprehension skills do you have? None? So sorry. Not.

Several ppl have complained about line length and/or lack of
quoting from a few. No big deal if they used a real newsreader or
learned how to use it. Even my old version of Netscape fixes
that.

Using "normal" headers, I also see references to previous posts

No. Both computer above and your cooking pot are blue.
They both need some yellow coloring added.
Teal has a very distinct green cast to it.

Pork 'n Beans, they'd make a bigger, splattering mess than potatoes!


Once on a Boy Scout camping trip, I tossed an unopened can
of Pork 'n Beans into the campfire. This was just a fun to do
thing for us young boys. We all knew it would explode once
it got hot enough. So we all hid behind nearby trees to stay
out of the way.

Within a few minutes, that bean-bomb detonated with a fairly
loud bang. The two ends of the can were never found. The round
body of the can was straightened pretty much. All trees and
tents within about 40 feet were covered with pork'n beans.

It was pretty cool. ;-D

Still speaking of HB eggs.... Does anyone remember the hard boiled
eggs with Russian (or French) dressing from the 50's - the mid 70's?
They appeared on menus at Woolworth's all the way up top semi-fine
dining.

That was my brunch today.
https://i.postimg.cc/CKL9jXRt/Hard-B...n-Dressing.jpg


That looks and sounds tasty. I googled a recipe for russian
dressing and see that it's an enhanced mix of mayo and ketchup
which I love. I'll have to try that soon. Only thing I don't
currently have is Frank's Hot Sauce but I normally keep some
handy.
----------------------------------
Epicurious recipe:

1. 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion.
2. 1 cup purchased or homemade mayonnaise.
3. 1/4 cup ketchup-style chili sauce or ketchup.
4. 4 teaspoons bottled horseradish, or to taste.
5. 1 teaspoon hot sauce, preferably Frank's Red Hot Sauce.
6. 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce.
-----------------------------------

I peeled 8 eggs in 37 seconds using the boil method. No gadgets
required.


Nope. No you didn't....not unless you changed into your superhero
costume beforehand.

When I was the reserves we did that with the canned Jambalaya that came
in the combat rations we had on bivouac.

Using Netscape Navigator and/or a Windows desktop client program/computer is not practical at this time. In the future, Microsoft Windows will once again become the preeminent OS and people will once again use desktop systems.. Netscape Navigator will rise from the ashes. Cloud computing, web apps, mobile computing, and multiple platform computing will be seen as just some crazy fads.

This will be when you guys will make your move. Well, not literally you guys because this will happen in around 10,000 years and we'll all be dead.

The good news is that people have and always will be resistant to change and will always ridicule people with new ideas and ways. That is the natural order of things. It is built into our DNA and just one of the peculiarities of being human. As we all know, ya can't fight nature.

Well thank you for that. I don't know nothing about color. If you want to know something about color, you ask a painter. If you want to know what the weather is going to be like, you ask a surfer.
