I tried it out last night on a fairly old Global Chef’s Knife and was amazed. In under a minute it’d put a near razor edge on the knife.
Global knives are traditional Japanese blades meaning they don’t have a symmetrical bevel like European blades do. The MinoSharp claims it will work on European blades (like Henkels) but that it will take a bit longer. In any case – if you own Japanese blades this sharpener is amazing, cheap, easy and fast.

From the makers of V8 (which is only even passable as an ingredient in bloody maries) comes Broccoli for people on feeding tubes! Yippy!
This stuff is wrong on so many levels…
The most obvious – it’s blended broccoli in a f’ing box
Creme of Broccoli soup isn’t that bad… this ISN’T creme of broccoli soup
I’m pretty sure “No Artificial Flavors” was meant as a warning
It’s healthy (couldn’t possibly be good)
It’s “charming” (click no the image below to go to the site to read the description). I’m sorry, I’ve done my fair share of drugs and blended broccoli in a f’ing box doesn’t even come close to charming.
It’s got 50% of your daily salt and is still disgusting
It apparently helps you climb rainbow food pyramids
The product shot appears to have broccoli leaves in the soup… dude – broccoli leaves aren’t very edible (but better than the soup)
mod_raills is easily 1,000 times easier to setup then the traditional stacks. For slice host the tutorials are pretty good but, missing a few things. Here what I had to do to get it up and running. Thanks to Jame H for some help on this late Saturday night.

I have to say – working with the Deuces Cracked guys is one of the best office gigs I’ve had. Really fun group to work with. Here’s Aaron trying out his new swim goggles in our very cool death trap of a historical brick office building (which is filled with cool art and, except for us, a lot of architects).

I finally had to get a job… but it was nice not working much this summer. I’m working at http://www.deucescracked.com/ doing Rails work on their site. Fun group of guys and the office is in Ballard so I can ride/walk to work, which is very nice.
Here’s the office… while shooting the About page videos (not up yet).
Gotta love Seattle – CEO’s wear hoodies and drum t-shirts.

Katja: excellent news about your mom me: didn’t get Katja: oh, Matt twitted or something. He’s at MGH with Carolyn. They have a kidney for her
i saw it on his Facebook thing like 10 minutes ago me: huh – pretty strange to find out about that this way
So – my Mom is having a kidney transplant. I hope everything goes well. She’s been spending 6 hours every day on a dialysis machine so this is great news for her.
