As with a low sucking sound it slowly disappeared again, Starbuck still gazing at the agitated waters where it had sunk, with a wild voice exclaimed—“Almost rather I had seen Moby Dick and fought him, than to have seen thee, thou white ghost!”
      “What was it, Sir?” said Flask.
      “The great live squid, which, they say, few whale-ships ever beheld and returned to their ports to tell of it.”

Moby-Dick, 1851

Guys, FURL sucks. It has sucked for years, and I'm sorry I've been using it. I have switched over to delicious; I would have done this much sooner, but they made it really difficult the last time I tried.

4-21-08  Archives
Uhmm, apparently archives haven't really been working since late 2006. THANX for the heads up guys! They are temporarily fixed, and will stay temporarily fixed until I migrate to new software/layout. I have said some hilarious things in the last 7 years, that future generations will feel lucky I preserved. Go check them out.

1-18-08  new iPhone icon
Woah, it's been 3 years since the last news update! Fuzzysquid now has a webclips icon for your iPhone! It'll automagically show up when you add FS to your home screen. Atom and RSS feeds have been available for a few years now, but I never made special mention of it.

1-14-05  LJ images
Since it seems to be popular, and it's been linked in a lot of different places besides here, I've decided to post the LJ Images page. At least in the news, at least for now. It's also getting some Google ads because you LiveJournal people are sucking up all my bandwidth (35% for that one page!)

so..i've been catching up on the posts..and saw the diss on architects. we are not the stupid ones. we take the same classes as you engineers, structures and crap...and know how to use it AND make it look "nice and aesthetic".

buon giorno and happy friday. yes...i enjoyed a pleasant "roman holiday" (ref: Audrey Hepburn movie)...two weeks ago. since then, i've been following the web posts w/ amusement. ciao.

dannyboy 10:11 AM (0)


what the hell! she's in ITALY?? how come no one tells me these things?? why is everyone out of the country?! "we are the ones that tell the architect their stupid!" yes. i see... anyway, my point holds true; you guys don't care that i've figured out the meaning of life, AND that unlike YOUR theories, mine doesn't require the world to be made of marshmallow and taco-flavored beef. my brain = much bigger than yours

eito 5:20 AM (0)


he's not an architect; he's a deSiGnEr... ...but designers are still dumber than VCs, but smarter than rutgers civil engineers though... hahaha... [and stop calling wendy' name... she in italy on vacation right now, stupid...]

whats with the shot at civil engineers???????? wheres the respect for the MOST important people in the world! we are the ones that tell the architect their stupid! geeeeez i mean we (civil engineers) could all be architects! now that would be a sad sad world. because stupid architects think that because it looks nice and aesthetic on paper that its possible to build how naive!!!!!

dannyboy 12:27 PM (0)


so anyway, i've been reading a lot of these books on physics and whatnot, and watching a lot of Nova... and i had an epiphany a few days ago... i've got a new working theory about life and the universe. but i'm pretty sure you guys aren't interested. stupid venture capitalist civil engineering goons. WHERE'S WENDY??

dannyboy 12:17 PM (0)


btw: i had to go into her post and strip the LF's, AND publish it for her. so she can read and cook anyway. actually, i don't think she reads either, or else i would've caught hell from all the misogynistic posting i've been doing. so she can cook. and drink (she likes the sauce). but that's what's important, no?

dannyboy 10:39 AM (0)


down boy. this isn't a singles bar.

"You can substitute different wine, beer or even vodka for the wine." nice.

Stir-Fried Spiced Bean Curd and Pork 1/4 pound lean fresh pork, finely ground 1 tablespoon soy sauce 1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine or pale dry sherry 1/2 teaspoon sugar 1/4 teaspoon Szechwan peppercorns 3 tablespoons peanut oil or flavorless vegetable oil 4 pieces (3-inch square) fresh bean curd, about 1/2 inch thick 1 tablespoon brown-bean sauce 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon chopped, peeled fresh ginger root 2 scallion, white part only, finely chopped 1/4 cup chicken stock, fresh or canned 1 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon cold chicken stock or cold water 2 teaspoons sesame-seed oil PREPARE AHEAD: 1. In a bowl, combine the port, soy sauce, wine and sugar. With a spoon, mix them together well. 2. Set a small wok or 10-inch skillet over high heat and drop in the Szechwan peppercorns. Turn the heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes, or until they are lightly browned. Then crush the peppercorns to a fine powder with a mortar and pestle or wrap them in a kitchen towel and crush them with a rolling pin. Shake through a strainer into a small bowl and set aside. 3. Have the oil, bean curd, bean sauce, cayenne pepper, ginger, scallions, chicken stock, salt, cornstarch mixture and sesame-seed oil within easy reach. TO COOK: Set a 12-inch wok or 10-inch skillet over high heat for 30 seconds. Pour in the 3 tablespoons of oil, swirl it about in the pan and heat for another 30 seconds, turning the heat down to moderate if the oil begins to smoke. Drop in the pork mixture and stir-fry for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until the pork is no longer pink. Add the bean curd, bean sauce, hot pepper, ginger, scallions, chicken stock and salt, and cook over moderate heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Give the cornstarch mixture a quick stir to recombine it and add it to the pan. Cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce is lightly thickened and clear. Then add the Szechwan pepper and sesame-seed oil, transfer the entire contents of the pan to a heated platter and serve at once. As a main course, this will serve 2. As a part of a Chinese meal, it will serve 2-4. Above is the receipt as given in the cookbook. I adopt as needed. I use the Chinese hot sauce in place of the Szechwan peppercorns, cayenne pepper and brown-bean sauce, about 2-3 tablespoons depending on how spicy do you want to make it. You can substitute different wine, beer or even vodka for the wine. You can use water instead of chicken stock. I normally combine the hot sauce, ginger powder, chicken stock/water and salt together in the small cup before hand; and corn starch in a separate bowl. Corn starch is important, but you do not have to have sesame seed oil. To cook, I put about 1/2 table spoon of hot sauce and chopped scallions in the heated oil and let it cook for about 30 seconds, be careful because it will splatter, than put in the pork.

ooo~ the squidshop's got new merchandise! and if you've ever got a leaky fast-food drink container that leaks all over your bedroom floor, you should consider buying a fuzzy mug! HAH, you're going to kill me.

dannyboy 7:29 PM (0)


ok its fixed! sorry about that. now go revel in the squidy goodness that is "white short sleeve t-shirt #1"

ticklemyfuzzysquid 6:17 PM (0)


uh the zoom link on the first shirt is down! if i am gonna get a shirt i'm gonna have to be able to see it. this should be a numero uno on the priority list

dannyboy 2:09 PM (0)


ick. if you're ever tempted to take a swig out of a fast-food drink container that you've left on your bedroom floor overnight: don't. wax-lined paper cups are designed to have an effective working life of 4-6 hours. after that, the wax dissolves and the cup leaks.

I'm waiting for a call from a company I'm doing a phone interview with. They're 20 mins. late. I was a little nervous before, but now I'm just bored. =| So something like 30 days until graduation. Unreal. I definitely wouldn't want to stay another year (haha-jen) because I think I've had enough, but I also feel like there's a lot I didn't get to do.

okay, i think I've got most of this figured out... almost ready for some users. this'll be a giant pain for sure when i leave CMU and have to rewrite all this crap for the next host. i'm starting to hate the web (again). i'm not even really looking for work in the sector anymore... not that i can find anyone who's in good enough shape to be hiring. i'm getting lots of GFY's... maybe i'll post some of the more bizzare ones when/if i finally get a job.
