1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Last time I was at the Hollywood location I saw Dave Grohl and Will Ferrell.

    I believe the French Laundry cookbook had a source for egg toppers, or he said you could do it with a knife.

    Egg toppers are not a hot commodity. You can get them on Amazon, Williams Sonoma etc.

    Salty junk food in a place where I can give her the tourist experience and she can snap a few pics for her blog, we can get a t-shirt and get out for like $50 - that is one thing (ever seen the bit in Rush Hour 2 where the two Chinese people are asking where Roscoe's is? that's basically us) - but last summer at Bouchon, it seemed like the saltiest food I've ever had, the roast chicken on lentils in jus especially. Nobody else says this? I had just gotten off the airplane and it was shocking. I mean, the Japanese aren't exactly afraid of a bit of salt, but the food here is definitely not that salty.

    Ever watch an American cooking show? They'll say "add a pinch of salt", and then you see them grab about half a teaspoon between thumb and all four fingers. That's not a pinch it's a handfull.

    Let me understand this correctly. Your wife wants to search out badly groomed women who likely smell and live in squalor, and you aren't coming to Northern California?

    Since I am one of the poars, black beans and white rice have become staples in my diet. What are some good spices/seasonings I can add to white rice to make it flavorful? Right now I chop some fresh cilantro and add lime juice, anyone have ideas?

    I only get like 300 miles on the rental car so we're not going to look for the English tutor in the trailer park, I think she just wants a UCI tour. I will emerge a pho specialist if she fucking forces me to drive all the way to Newport Beach from LAX after getting off a 10 hour flight, we doin it my way.

    cumin and chili powder are your friends, maybe a little coriander powder. Add a spicy sausage or bacon if you want to feel full.

    Rice has a very subtle flavour. Don't overpower it unless you don't like the taste of rice.
    If you do want to overpower it, probably some soy sauce. Other herbs. Salt. Light vinegar.

    Edit: Or what impolyt said.
