  3. I actually got a hi-res version from APOD's website and used GIMP to cut it down to wallpaper size. I noticed the version you linked to has some foo-foo stardust glitter.... probably will appeal to the female audience here.
  4. Thanks it's been fun. Goodbye all.
  5. So they've released yet another "new" version of Adobe Bloated Reader eh? I'm really tired of these constant updates. I switched over to PDF Xchange Viewer on my home rig a couple of years ago and am very happy with it. I was using Sumtra PDF for a little while based on your recommendation - I certainly like the fact that it's lightweight and doesn't integrate with the OS. But the major disappointment for me was in terms of lack of features and the way that it renders some fonts poorly. With PDF Xchange Viewer I don't have to worry about any of that.
  6. Looks good Mac. I'm gonna give it a try next time I make my turkey burgers.
  7. You gotta be kidding me. Only 1 reply? Where is the love for Aryeh? C'mon you guys - it's Aryeh! not just some joe schmoe down the street who doesn't know what he's talking about.
  8. I must be psychic these days. For some reason I felt there were some tremors in the IT world. So I went on Google and typed in "I.T. related news". It returned several links. I just so happened to click on the link that took me to Infoworld's main website. There I found a headline that caught my attention. The article is written by Ellen Messmer but look who she quotes within the story. Full article here.
  9. I rarely if ever spend any time in the kitchen cooking. My idea of "cooking" is that if it doesn't fit in the microwave or can't eat it in 10 minutes or less, it's not a meal. So when I stumbled upon this recipe, I was really proud of myself! When I searched online for turkey burger recipes, they all seemed to have two ingredients in common: worcester sauce & 1 egg. I came up with the rest of the ingredients by experimenting with stuff that I thought would compliment ground turkey. Keep in mind that lean ground turkey has very little fat, and thus little taste. That's really the main reason why I've got some strong flavors in here like the red onion & garlic. Some of this will "burn off" during the cooking process so don't worry about it being overpowering. 1 package of Jenny O's lean turkey (usually they come in a 1.25 lb package) 1/3 cup of worcester sauce 1/2 cup of minced red onion. (I normally chop about 3/4 cup; but I realize that not everyone likes red onion. You can also substitute yellow onion but it doesn't stand up to high heat as well as red onion does.) 1 large egg 3 cloves of garlic (chopped) ? McCormicks Lemon & Pepper spice ? McCormicks Mediterrean Herb spice Place the ground turkey in a large mixing bowl and mix the ingredients by hand. Start out by adding the 1/3 cup of worcester. You can certain add more but this is about average for most people's taste. Don't overhandle the meat. You want to mix it just so that most of the liquid is absorbed into the meat. Next add the red onion and garlic; make sure it's thorougly mixed. Afterwards, add the egg and mix well by hand. Last two items of course are the 2 McCormicks spices I've listed above. Notice I didn't put a definite amount on there. Again, I'm not a "cook", so I normally eyeball it when I make this recipe. If you want to measure it out before hand, use about 1 Tsp of the Lemon & Pepper spice and 2/3 Tsp of Mediterrean Herb spice. Again, this is a matter of personal preference so feel free to reduce (or increase) the amount of the spices according to your preference. W hen you make the burger patties, keep in mind that the meat will shrink during the cooking process so if you make a patty that is 2" in diameter, it's going to come out much smaller. I prefer mine "meaty", so I make them in 3.5" diameter in size. (It also happens to fit perfectly on the burger buns). This will yield about 5 full size (3.5") patties with the 6th one being really small. If you want them all in nice even sizes, you'll have to experiment on your own. Add about a tablespoon of olive oil to a non-stick frying pan, and preheat. If you cook two patties at a time, it will take roughly 9 mins cooking time. Cook for roughly 4 - 4.5 minutes on the first side. Flip it over, add just a tad more olive oil and cook for about another 4 minutes. Becareful with the heat. Unlike ground beef, ground turkey tends to burn really easily. So if you want to avoid eating a scorched and dried out turkey burger, watch the heat level. I like to start out with high heat for the initial two to three minutes and cook the rest of the way using med-high heat (almost to the point of medium). To serve, just add the burger to the buns, add a layer of lettuce, and ketchup. One final note* I once tried this with a George Foreman grill, but I found that it really drains the turkey burger of the good juices and you get a really dried out burger. Tastes alright, but definitely not as good as using a frying pan.
  10. Yeah I know, shocking. When I took the original image and resized it, it came out just fine. It wasn't until afterwards when I uploaded to the forum that the image looked really blurry.... I'm still playing around with it a bit.
  11. Meh... not impressive at all. In my younger days, I once did a summersault off the deep end of the pool and came out with no shorts on. (The girls were very impressed).
  12. Glad to hear you figured out the problem. I tend to replace my power supply every 4-5 years. Not all power supplies are equal. A good quality PSU should last you atleast 5 years or more.
