Amazing how having a job can interfere with one's blogging. Cliff Note's update:
- EMI digital engineering is now happily ensconced in our temporary SF office and hiring is going nicely. (Note to purveyors of temporary office space, if you want my business, clearly explain your pricing, allow me to close quickly, and after I take the time to come visit don't suddenly explain that you only do two month or longer leases.)
- I have a bit of an addiction to NikeID. Shocking, I know, that I would love user-generated clothing, but there's something amazing about completely custom shoes for a $10 premium. Recently got a pair that was sized incorrectly and was pleased to find that Nike has a great return policy -- any reason for 30 days and free return shipping label. Amazing the influence that Amazon, Zappos, and others have had on online shopping.
- Made Alton Brown's deep-fried mac and cheese. All food can now be clearly divided into two classes: perfection (ie, deep-fried mac and cheese) and not-perfection (ie, everything else). I modified the recipe slightly -- buttermilk rather than eggs for binding the panko -- and if you cook you should try this!
Less eclectic posts coming, I hope.
