Delicious French Toast with Orange Juice and Vanilla


  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (pulpy is best) or fruit of one orange
  • 1/4 cup milk

And Add These According To Taste (a dash each):

  • Orange zest
  • Cinammon
  • Nutmeg

Whisk with a fork (or a whisk) to get a good mix. Fry in a pan (buttered or non-stick) for a few minutes on each side until browned. For a bonus add more of the spices onto the toast as it fries up in the pan to really bring out those flavors.

Drupal Penetration by Country

Moshe has provided a quick screenshot of usage map overlay which is neat. I like looking at this kind of data from the perspective of density and growth.

Sorting by the number of visits is interesting, but neglects the fact that countries are different sizes. Sorting be people/visit shows more of a "weighting" by the size of the country, but discounts the levels of computer/internet penetration within the country. It's not perfect, but it's still interesting. If you want the raw data here is the spreadsheet.

One more skewing factor: rss feeds

Google and Open Source Project Hosting

At the OSCON this summer they announced Google Code Project Hosting a Sourceforge like open source project hosting environment. It's inline with some of their other projects like Summer of Code, a project where Google pays university students to spend their summers working on open source projects. A system where Drupal got 14 projects (a value of over US$70,000 - listen to a summary of the progress in Lullabot Podcast #23).

Now, when they announced the whole Project Hosting thing it seemed like a nice thing for them to do for up and coming projects - but it also seemed more than a little redundant. If you're a small or medium project then Sourceforge will work great. If you're a larger project then maybe you need to use the OSUOSL (consider donating to them). Either way, it seemed more than redundant for Google to offer this hosting.

Mozilla Talkback

Mozilla has long used a system called Talkback and it uses a closed source, proprietary system that requires a license and is owned by a company called SupportSoft. People complain about this system all the time in forums saying "mozilla should build their own talkback system" to which the response is "why don't you build it as your own open source project and let us use it" to which the repsonse is usually something like "oh, I don't code, you should write it for me on your own time". You can guess how I feel about this exchanges...

Spanish White Wine Tasting - September 2006

So, we had another wine tasting night and it was delicious. This time, being the end of summer, we had white wines from a Spanish speaking country (or Portugal, cause hey, I love me a Portugese Vinho Verde). Anyway, after the fiasco last time where everyone's favorite was the last bottle ordered this time we let people try out wines in any order they wanted...with a slight of the people bringing wine forgot buy until the day of, and they purchased a warm bottle so we threw it in the fridge for a while. And we didn't get it out until the end. Guess which bottle won? The one that was in the fridge and that we drank last.

Damn the man.

Anyway, here's the data:
