Five Forks Food

Introducing (or really re-introducing) Five Forks Food, a recipe database that is a special “community blog” format supported by Movable Type. In theory, any member of Mac5 can contribute recipes or add comments. I’m still figuring it out.

You will find a link titled “FOOD” in the upper right corner of Mac5.

These are recipes Kathy typed into our Macintosh many years ago in a Hypercard Stack. She references them all the time. Later I converted them from HyperCard to a Lotus Notes Domino database that could be used on the web. (It is still here for the moment.)

A random set of recipes is published on the home page every 10 minutes.

Lost in translation are the 1 – 5 Fork ratings. I likely will have to key those by hand. You can look by category, look by name under the “All” link, or do a search on a word using the search field. For example: Search for bourbon.

If you make any of these, take a picture and send it to me. I’ll embed the photo in the recipe!

New Office (Mac’s view)

I’ve moved out of the legendary “Sam’s office” and into an office around the corner. I needed to let Heather take the helm and oversee grand central station.

My MacBook has a built in camera. This is the “Mac’s view” of my office. I have my desk against a bare wall for now. As you can see… I could use some color. Kathy’s “401k” is the most I have so far.

Movable Type 4.3

Upgraded mac5 to Movable Type 4.3 primarily to support a random entry plugin for Five Forks Food.

Looks like Image::Magick (default thumbnailer) is working with this upgrade. I had mt-config set to use NetBPM.
