Crave Bakery: Chocolate Cake - Episode 25

We reviewed their apple and apricot tarts in Episode 21. Now we've got our hands on one of their chocolate cakes... although a little dry after sitting in our freezer/fridge for two weeks, none of the chocolate flavor got lost--that's for sure! We recommend dropping what you're doing and eating this cake the moment you buy it, because if it's this good after 2 weeks, it must be a smash hit when it's freshly baked.

Beautiful sunset with a tree... Or is it?

Okay, okay, the sunset was a picture I found on the Internet (c) Michael Wang 2005, but I did make the tree myself. It consists of one 3-foot CAT-5 Ethernet cable that I cut into small ~5" pieces before slicing open the tops, exposing the twisted pairs of copper wire, which I then craftily fashioned into the life-like tree you see before you.

Hope you enjoyed the art. Re-tweet if you liked it.

TweetDeck not working behind your corporate firewall? Try this.

Sometimes you've got a pesky firewall (AKA "proxy server") in your way that prevents you from accessing certain websites. TweetDeck, a popular twitter client running on the Adobe Air platform, seems to have some issues connecting to twitter behind my corporate firewall. I came to find out recently that it is not TweetDeck that is to blame, so much as it is Adobe.

Anyway, here's the fix. Once TweetDeck launches, click on the question mark button at the top right (the tooltip will say "Launch TweetDeck Support"). What should happen is a little window pops up asking you for your proxy server username and password, and then the TweetDeck support website will open. Once this happens, simply click the Refresh button in TweetDeck and your tweets should appear.

Did this work for you, too? Post a comment and let the world know.

Another beautiful sunset at the apartment

The bright white in the pic is actually a deep orange that's much better appreciated in person.

iPhone App: Is That Gluten Free? - Episode 20

Our first iPhone app review is here: we've found one of the most popular gluten-free apps for the iPhone and put it through its paces, leaving no stone unturned. What we found is that while the app is generally great for determining whether or not something is gluten free, too much time has elapsed between the verification date and the current date, leaving the possibility that the recipe/formula has been altered--which still requires a phone call to the manufacturer to clear up any questions.
