My current one is terrible and about 8 years old so Im looking to buy a new one. I would like to keep it around $600 or below. This will be used for the internet, office, etc. I dont need anything fancy for gaming. Just something new that will last me a few years.
I dont want a Mac.

Friend of mine told me that they were closing down. I think he said they have new owners of the building and they are ending Ampersand's lease. I always thought the place sucked as a whole(mostly due to the crowd and a resident dj or two) but they did have some really good shows throughout the years...

Here are the fish heads as given to me. Let me start this by saying sorry about...

Ive only made it once before and some of the piees came out great and some were, well terrible.
I used an eye of round roast and cut it into 1 inch x 3 inch pieces with them being a 1/4 inch thick. I tried to make them around the same size but towards the end of the roast I tried thick and thin p...

| Food and Drink Board|| the obsession with the avenue pub - Jones on 1/4/14 at 11:53 am|
Is it because of the bottle selection? Asking this because the draft selection isn't up to par with the praise this place gets.
I love the neighborhood feel to it and it is a great bar.
Its the bottle selection, right?...
| O-T Lounge|| Plumber in BR that will come to house tomorrow? - Jones on 12/20/13 at 6:34 pm|
Im pretty sure the drain pipe that drains the water from the washer machine is clogged and I dont have a snake that will go all the way down the the tube and undo the clog. Hoping this is it and not something worse.
Anyone know of a guy that would come out tomorrow. Called home360 last night and ...

Any help is appreciated. I guess the main thing is that the phone should have a good battery life. ...

The menu is made up pretty nice with pictures of plenty of the dishes. Im normally not a fan of picture menus but some of these dishes need pics...

Went last night for a few beers and some wings and really noticed that the place has gone downhill since the early 2000s. They renovated the place a few years ago and I do think that it was a big improvement. The little bar area and look of the place is much better.
Had the hot wings and I gotta ...

I saw this mentioned in that Modernist Cuisine book but cant really find much on the net. The book mentioned that you can marinate a steak in fish sauce for 3 days and it will mimic dry aging the steak.
