I’m using MBP 2.4Ghz (2008) and after using more than 3-4hours (just browsing) my MBP tempt reach 82C-85C. Can you give me a optimal setting for fan control? Thanks.

A wonderful dish, nothing like tetrazinni in the 1970s, and made turkey taste good (I can’t stand it).

My mods:

*Used chopped portabellas (same creature, just bigger) and a big handful of rehydrated porcini

*Added much more pepper, and about 4 garlic cubes, and a handful of pepper flakes (couldn’t find the nutmeg)

*I added some of the porcini soaking liquid, perhaps not in place of stock, just more volume (I measure nothing)

*I didn’t like the acid balance, so I added the juice of about half a lemon (had no ver jus on hand)

*I cooked the turkey in the sauce for a while, to let the sauce thicken and the turkey herbs to permeate the sauce

*Added quite a bit of fresh grated parm into the sauce

*I tossed the sauce/meat mixture w the pasta and served it topped with more cheese, crumbs, and lots of fresh parsley. It didn’t suffer for not baking, stayed wonderfully saucy this way!

This brought back a lot of memories and made me sad that my parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles, and some cousins are gone. No one gets together any more except for their immediate families and maybe the families of their siblings. How can I obtain a copy of what you wrote so that I can share it with my sister? Carol

Comment from: JAdP


Thank you for the kind words. I’m glad that the post helped you out. I can empathize with your customer; the integration of, Address Book, iCal,, spotlight, etc is very useful.

Check out Hawk Wings, especially the plug-ins and add-ons list, for some great additions to that your customers might also find useful.

In response to: Proper Set up on MaxOSX for IMAP


Thanks for this excellent walk-through! I had a really hard time setting up to work with an IMAP server. I can get Entourage to work pretty easily, but I have a client that was reluctant to learn how to use a different email client. This write-up saved my bacon!

Thanks again!

Leftover Corned Beef and Cabbage Recipes
Or tomorrow’s leftovers today - which is somewhat of an in joke. A company where we worked, changed its name to Nextira One. My partner, who is Philippina, thought this was very funny as tira is Tagalog for leftovers, so we figured that next tira on…

Joe, I remember your love of food, your father’s fried hot peppers that filled the apartment with stinging air. Didn’t know you became a chef in your own right. Do you remember Christmas 1974? Drop a line - I’ll tell you who I am if you don’t remember.

Hey, thanks for saying thanks. Most people don’t want to understand what we do. If someone watches us you start to understand what the job is about. If you REALLY want to understand the work ask a lineman’s wife what the job is like. Again thanks.

If you put a value in the IMAP Path Prefix field under the “Advanced” tab - it often will result in solving the problem with the app not writing to the sent items folder, and also, you will no longer be synching all of the folders on the server.
This was a good solution for me, because there were tens of thousands of emails in “public” folders that I did not want to see or synch. When adding the mail server address to the IMAP path prefix field the apps behavior changed. Give it a try.

yay, i’m universal. LOL. hehe.. but i didn’t grow up in the states, so i confused the quiz a little. Hehe

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

“You have a Midland accent” is just another way of saying “you don’t have an accent.” You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.
The West

North Central

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
