I am a developer specializing in web applications. Currently, I work on a large application built on Java, JRuby, and Rails. I've also written web services in Python using Django and the combination of Pyramid and Cornice. I am interested in practical programming education, service-oriented architecture and design, and functional programming. My current personal interest is Clojure.

comment What is the black, slightly sweet, flavour in some Asian food?
It could be liquorice root, or anise, which would explain the different textures. The sauces I listed above are all "sweet," in the Asian style; but none taste like liquorice.

comment Buying my first set of pots and pans
I've added a couple of smaller options. I wasn't able to find a good 3 qt. sauce pan on the Katom site, so I went with a relatively inexpensive consumer-oriented sauce pan. The dutch oven and stockpot are less frequently used (and therefore are more optional), but are very different from the day-to-day pans and therefore make a worthwhile investment.

That's a good point, rfusca. When I cook, I'm usually cooking for three or four people.

comment Bread Dough Dried out in Fridge
I decided to do this, basically for speed. I only lost about 5% of the dough, I'd guess. We'll see how it goes -- this is my first time baking bread besides the "no-knead" recipe, which I have been underwhelmed by.
