400 stamps

400 stamps

I went on a mammoth expedition yesterday (15k!) to stamp the latest featured @gowalla (http://gowalla.com) spots in London (have all but Wembley Stadium now).

Got a few techy places (Google - gowalla.com/spots/50975, Yahoo - gowalla.com/spots/51090, Dopplr - gowalla.com/spots/51216).

And created a whole bunch of toristy ones in London. No-one had already created one for the Queen's Gallery (http://gowalla.com/spots/50996) or the Royal Mews (http://gowalla.com/spots/50993), or 10 Downing St (http://gowalla.com/spots/51016).

And found some of my missing items (I got 8 or 9 new ones - inc the 2 pictured).

As a side-effect of this, I also reached 400 stamps.

This is a big achievement for me, and is a testament to how good my friends are - as I don't yet have an iPhone of my own :)

Thank you to everyone who helped me!! Bigger thanks to Patrick who actually let me borrow the entire phone yesterday!

Cauliflower cheese and sausage pasta (serves 2)

Approximate time: 45 minutes


The ingredients:
  • 1 cauliflower
  • 2" cube of cheese, grated
  • 4 sausages
  • 200g pasta
  • 1/2 tblsp butter
  • 1 tblsp plain flour
  • 100 ml milk
  • salt and pepper

The recipe:
  • Chop cauliflower into little florets
  • Put sausages onto grill (for 20-30 minutes until cooked through)
  • Add cauliflower to large pan, and cover with water (need to enough to leave 150ml of cauliflower water after cooked)
  • Boil cauliflower gently for 10-15 mins until firm to taste
  • Start the pasta (time should be on the packet)
  • Whilst waiting, melt the butter into a small pan
  • Take off the heat, and add flour to absorb the butter
  • Add the milk to the pan, a bit at a time, stirring to mix
  • Add the grated cheese to the sauce, and salt and pepper to taste
  • When the cauliflower is done, drain 150ml of the water into a measuring jug
  • With the pan on a low heat, and stirring constantly, add the cauliflower water to the roue in small amounts (we want the sauce to thicken so don't add all the water unless needed)
  • Keep stirring for 5 minutes until the cheese has melted
  • Cut the sausages into round pieces
  • Drain the pasta
  • Add the cauliflower, sausage pieces and pasta to the sauce in stages, stirring to mix
  • Serve


2009YIP/217 Packrat Card Info

Another month, another new tool. Well almost, this one has taken slightly longer than originally planned. However, I am pleased to present an automated (almost) solution to the Packrat Wiki - Packrat Card Info. For all the up-to-date information on card releases, recipes and collection feats.

A must for any Packrat fan....


2009YIP/46 Packrat Market Tracker

My newest project, the Packrat Market Tracker; created by me and Ben. Fully automated, and operating with the knowledge of Alamofire. This site queries the markets every minute, and records which cards it finds, so that you can search for a particular card, or browse the collections, to find out when a card was last tracked.

Presenting, the Packrat Market Tracker........

This is what I've been working on since Christmas. It's in beta currently, because it's not finished. However, it will allow you to make MOO Stickerpacks of Packrat cards (with permission from Alamofire).

Visit the site at packrattools.com/moo and enjoy.

PS: Feedback will be much appreciated, as will suggestions, and any bug reports!

PPS: And now I'm caught up with 2009YIP.
