SpaceX launch NOT @ 3:58 today. Link inside. SCRUBBED - lame. - Schwartz
[link=(http://www.spacex.com/webcast)]Webcast - should start around 2:30[/link] This is an unmanned ISS resupply mission. Of note, they're planning on attempting a "recovery" (simulated) of the 1st stage in which it will do a deorbit burn, and then descend in a controlled fashion in to the At...

RV storage & black water dump in BR - what y'all got? Also, 2 x 2kW or 1 x 4kW? - Schwartz
So my parents got their Airstream, and a truck to pull it (F150 Lariat EcoBoost w/ 3.55) and now I'm trying to find them a decent place to store it since they don't have room at their house. Yeah, crappy planning, I know. Anyone have suggestions for a place in/around BR that's not freaking $250 a...

Someone needs to simplify truck buying. Too many damn options/choices. - Schwartz
My parents put a deposit down on a 27' Airstream yesterday and have asked me to help them find a truck to pull it. I've already spent 90 minutes just looking through Ford and Chevy's websites, and there's just too many damn options. I found the charts with the max towing weights and rear end ratios,...

Herein I post links to videos of The London Souls and implore you to watch. - Schwartz
Stumbled across them thanks to Spotify a few weeks ago. They're like a modern amalgamation of Cream, Zeppelin, The Beatles, and Allman Brothers to me. In other words: really good shite. (I only post links to live videos, because I'm of the incredibly strong opinion that if your band doesn't soun...

First off, turkey day. My Dad and I did a standing rib roast (not sous vide...duh) so I didn't want to cook a whole turkey as well. [img]http://i.imgur.com/b9t1i2j.jpg[/img] I bought a turkey (well, minus the thighs and legs) and cut the breasts off. Brined in a concoction including citrus ju...

The great bacon debate. - Schwartz
For me, Wright is the current champion. I've found it to have the most consistent thick cut, a great smoke level, and the perfect amount of fat. A close second would be the Whole Foods stuff you can get behind the counter which I'm pretty sure is just Wright brand unpackaged. [img]http://wrig...

SpaceX launch today (5:44pm CST launch) - Schwartz
First attempt at a geostationary launch. Pretty big deal for them if they can get it up there. For some perspective, previous missions to send Dragon to ISS are an orbit of around 370KM. This orbit will be around 36,000KM. Pretty significant achievement for them. Streaming @ SpaceX.com starts in...

My new, pretty weird obsession: Buke and Gase - Schwartz
Female vocalist playing a heavily modified bass ukulele (buke) and the dude plays a homemade amalgamation of a bass and guitar (gase). Also featured are a crazy toe tambourine thing, and a kick drum. Love their sound. Lots of noise, very raw feeling. Her voice is awesome, just powerful enough to ...

Mooyah - Surprisingly good. - Schwartz
Way better than Fat Cow as far as the actual burger is concerned. Better than Five Guys overall. Fries are solid, very well seasons (kinda garlicky.) Haven't been to Burgersmith recently enough to compare. Overall, I'd say it's my new go-to spot for a relatively cheap, fast burger. ...

Immersion circulator pics and info - Schwartz
If anyone's really, really interested I'll put together an actual DIY with wiring diagrams, parts list, etc. but just wanted to get some general info out there. The brain of this whole thing is a JDL612 PID controller. It's designed to monitor temperatures (through a thermocouple) and open/close ...

Immersion circulator complete. Results = very, very good. - Schwartz
So far I've done some thick pork chops (salt, pepper, and sage, seared in canola oil after) and some sirloin burgers (salt, pepper, seared in brown butter.) The chops were awesome. Perfectly blushed throughout, very tender and moist. Next time I'm going to make some sort of crust with sage to rea...

What happens if I use a 250V fuse with 120V service? - Schwartz
I'm guessing the fuse doesn't care about the voltage but that it's just labeled for 10A@250V but would be fine for less than like 15A@120V? I can't see how the fuse would care about the voltage but just wanted to double check. (The equipment behind it will all be 120V.)...
