Hamburgers and Fried Hard Drives

by Jon Davis 26. July 2009 15:28

Not supposed to blog about blogging but my laptop has been out of commission due to hardware failure (another fried hard drive, I have to stop leaving my laptop roasting in Phoenix heat when I’m not with it), and it’s become my primary PC, so whatever I was doing suddenly got put on hold. For a week.

I intended to get that CAPTCHA prototype solution working by Tuesday or Wednesday, but, again, due to this hardware failure I was unable to fix it. Time is money in any tech solution space so that’s a bummer. But fortunately I receive blog comment spam in my Inbox reminding me that I need to get this thing done, so it’ll get done.

I meanwhile have a number of other projects that also got put on hold. Now there’s a big hill to climb to catch up.

I’ll delete this post upon my next update. If you’re subscribed with RSS than that won’t mean anything to you. But I’m sure I have an audience of one (myself). ;) Nevermind. 

On another topic, wow, Carl’s Jr. never ceases to amaze me with their burgers. They’ve upped their game over the years. They aren’t just a good competitor to other fast food burgers, they are in a league of their own. I just had what I thought would be a simple Famous Star single-patty cheeseburger, add bacon, and the thing was as tall as it was wide, with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and the like. I had to use multiple napkins. It tasted like something among the best that planet earth has to offer. And I really only went over there because I wanted their natural cut fries.

I tried their Guacamole Six Dollar Burger combo when I drove through Las Vegas, at midnight, after reaching the north end of the newer part of the Vegas strip. It was a great highlight of my Vegas drive-through, no kidding. I'm no connoseuier (sp?) of burgers, I think I eat maybe one or two hamburgers a month these days on average, but when I do, what a way to make it count!!
