| O-T Lounge|| Pretty sure I just fried the A/C in my car. Hepl. - Schwartz on 9/14/14 at 3:37 pm|
Bought one of the recharge things from AutoZone. It showed on the low end of the gauge, so started filling it up. After 2nd or 3rd cycle of filling (fill for a few seconds, stop and check pressure) compressor started short cycling. Stopped filling, checked pressure again and it showed low end of nor...
| Food and Drink Board|| Gumbo w/ okra recipe - who has a good one? - Schwartz on 9/14/14 at 9:48 am|
Yeah, I know some people hate it, but I'm personally a fan AND I happen to have a bag full of fresh okra that I need to get rid of. How do I go about incorporating this?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Need to make squash not taste like squash. - Schwartz on 9/9/14 at 7:49 pm|
I love all vegetables, but can't fricking stand squash. Both the flavor and the texture are gross to me. My Luckett farms box I just got is absolutely full of it, though, so I need to cook it.
What y'all got? Grilled & sauteed are both gross to me. I need a way to completely transform it. Thinkin...
| O-T Lounge|| Anyone ever dealt with DSLD or live in one of their developments? - Schwartz on 9/2/14 at 8:02 pm|
Went and looked at a model today, liked what I saw. Just trying to do some extra research to get more opinions.
To thank you for your time, here is a picture of a cute bunny.
| Food and Drink Board|| I've come to a sad realization: this is the best pulled pork in Baton Rouge. - Schwartz on 8/31/14 at 8:59 pm|
Seriously...other than doing it yourself, this is the best in Baton Rouge other than MAYBE that place on Government (Sweets? Brother's? Smoking Aces? whatever the frick it's called)
Why can't there be a goo...
| Food and Drink Board|| WYEI: Soft-shell crab w/ pasta. - Schwartz on 8/23/14 at 7:57 pm|
Just kidding...I know you would.
First time pan frying crab. Came out freaking awesome. ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| I hate life, and the NFL. - Schwartz on 8/15/14 at 7:03 pm|
I paid $20 to the NFL for preseason streaming because I don't have CST.
The game's blacked out on the NFL preseason streaming.
frick all of this shite. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Earl BR brunch spots? - Schwartz on 8/8/14 at 5:42 pm|
I know Mason's opens at 9. Anyone know of other options on Saturday that open that early?...
| Food and Drink Board|| What's your favorite two ingredient flavor combination? - Schwartz on 7/30/14 at 7:21 pm|
Like porks and apple, lamb and mint, bacon and...anything.
For me, right now, I don't think that fish sauce and lime juice can be beat. The perfect mixture of sour, salty, and fish guts.
What you got?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Made biscuits with rendered leaf lard. - Schwartz on 7/28/14 at 6:44 am|
frick butter or Crisco. Holy schnikes this shite is good. Plus, since I rendered my own lard, I also have a nice little pile of cracklin dust. Do yourselves a favor and give it a try, I would just suggest rendering it outside, because it can get a little porky doing it inside.
| O-T Lounge|| Smart people: What would cause a small appliance to melt like this? - Schwartz on 7/27/14 at 12:16 pm|
Fused, switched inlet. Had a 10A fuse in it. Noticed that the lights were off on the appliance, power switch was stuck, and burning smell.
Opened it up, the hot wire connector off of the switch was melted and scorched. Rest of the wire and other end of it were fine, and not hot to the touch.

| Food and Drink Board|| I made lamb burgers again. - Schwartz on 7/16/14 at 8:22 pm|
Made the pita and aioli from scratch. Feta from Rocking R dairy, and a little tomato relish thing.
Sweet potato fries with a Moroccan spice rub.
I'm pretty damn happy with this one....
| Food and Drink Board|| Anyone been to Franko's over by La Reyna? - Schwartz on 7/6/14 at 3:44 pm|
I'm curious. Haven't been yet, but kinda wanna try it. Is it gringo friendly enough? ...

| Outdoor Board|| Anyone been out of Myrtle Grove recently? - Schwartz on 6/10/14 at 12:28 pm|
Going next weekend - haven't been in two years. Where's the fishing good right now down there?...
| Tech Board|| Love those all nighters. Rebuilt a VDI environment last night. I need Red Bull. - Schwartz on 6/10/14 at 9:05 am|
Long story short: storage crapped out, couldn't swing the volumes where the VDI VMs were out to a different array or from behind the piece of shite SVC. We rebuilt the entire environment overnight, 1300 VMs. No issues reported this morning.
This was a lot of not fun. ...
| O-T Lounge|| I suck at Google: who should I call to repour my back porch/patio? - Schwartz on 6/9/14 at 8:47 am|
The only company I can find is WCK. Anyone know of any other places to contact? Just need to get my back porch repoured to unfrick the grade and other stupid shite the previous owners did. ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Going to try Alton Brown's steak directly on coals method again tonight. - Schwartz on 6/6/14 at 10:10 am|
He did it on Good Eats as well, but for those that haven't seen it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5y2voEWJ6U
I think I'm going to do flat iron instead, and make some sandwiches with a roasted red pepper aioli and some arugula. Also have some leftover chimichurri that I might throw on.
| Outdoor Board|| My fat arse is going kayaking next weekend - any tips? - Schwartz on 6/6/14 at 9:17 am|
Buddy at work has two hobies, and has invited me to tag along. I've done kayak fishing before, but just with a paddle, and they were really, really short trips. Any tips particularly related to pedal drive so that I don't look like a tool?
If I can make it longer than 45 minutes, I'll consider i...
