Not in the News

I can’t comment over at Susan’s blog, not having a Blogger account. But I have to admit, I’m beginning to wonder the same thing. Why has the Ezboard hack not made news? I don’t know if I’d go so far as to suspect misrepresentation by Ezboard, but I do think it’s… odd. I’ve been plugging variations of ‘ezboard hack’ into Google News each day, and turning up very little. All I’ve found so far are two articles on Halifaxlive.com. And a smattering of postings in various newsgroups – mostly owners of BBs mentioning their own boards, I’ve found no real discussion. Or maybe I just don’t know where to look?

Anyway, I’m looking at it as somewhat of a blessing in disguise. With an exam coming up on Saturday, I can certainly do with a bit less distraction!

Bake Away the ezBoard Blues

This post is dedicated to all the ezBoard readers who are feeling out of touch. I thought of you today as I baked biscuits with my son (that would be ‘cookies’ to most of you!) I thought of you because:

a) when I opened the drawer where my baking paper is kept, I saw all the bits and pieces sitting neatly in zip-lock baggies, and
b) when I reached for the dessicated coconut, it was nicely labelled with a black-on-clear PTouch label.

Both of these organizational wonders are a direct result of me hanging out in the stitching boards… so thankyou… I think 😕 Anyway, the ANZAC biscuits came out great, so if you’re looking for something to do while your favourite board is still chewing up and spitting out your posts, may I suggest:

  • Ingredients
    • 1 cup plain flour
    • 1 cup rolled oats
    • 3/4 cup desiccated coconut
    • 1 cup brown sugar
    • 125g butter
    • 2 tbsp golden syrup
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    • 3 tbsp boiling water
  • Method
    • Combine sifted flour, oats, coconut and sugar in a bowl. Melt butter and Golden Syrup in a saucepan over low heat. Dissolve baking soda in boiling water, then add to the butter and Golden Syrup. Stir this into oats mixture mix well. Spoon tablespoons of mix onto a tray lined with baking paper. Leave plenty of space to allow for spreading. Bake at 150C for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!

Not as good as Tim Tams, I grant you, but fabulous anyway. Still in search of something to do? Go check out Browse Happy. Then go stitch :giggle:

Happy in my new home

Here I am, finally, settling into my new home… stitched.bymel.com. Should be staying here, I hope. RSS feeds working now, due to much fixing up by OtherHalf last night.

Other changes – I installed plugins BAStats and Links Page, both by Owen Winkler. BAStats lets me see who you are 😉 , and Links Page is a nifty little script allowing links to be filtered by category – I’ve popped it into the Blogroll static page, and shifted my blogroll off the main page for now. I also shifted my stash Wishlist over here from the tinroofmedia domain – so now Mum will know where to find it 😆

On another stitching note, all the ezBoards are having major problems, and I can’t post replies to any of the threads about the new Mirabilia right now. But aside from the pretty extreme wings (she’s supposed to fly with those? 😯 ), I like her. I’d probably modify the wings a bit – maybe just that top green part would work?

Oh, and a very final thing. For those nice people posting comments (thank you btw 😳 ), you should know that you only have to be ‘moderated’ just the once. Once you’ve had one comment OK’d, subsequent comments should go through without a hassle 🙂
