Fresh Choice – please bring back the Chipotle Hummus!

Fresh Choice recently changed their wonderful Chipotle Hummus recipe due to “some seniors complained that it was too spicy.” Well… now it doesn’t taste anything like it used to. 😐
Everybody I know who had tried the “old” Chipotle Hummus thought it was great — NONE of us like the new version. Surely the voices of all those who did not complain far outnumber the seniors that did, right?
Fresh Choice, if you’re listening, please bring it back! Thank you.

A better Lilly's Hummus

Lilly’s Hummus is a great deal – both in terms of product and price. However, to my taste their recipe is light on tahini and lemon (so that’s what I add more of!).

– 2 tbsp tahini
– 1 lemon

Stir it up until creamy (trying to get it as close to my dad’s recipe as possible, the best hummus on the planet! He adds a clove of garlic and serves on a plate topped with cumin, paprika and olive oil).

Acer Aspire One netbook: Changing screen resolution on external monitor?

How do you change the screen resolution for an external monitor on the Aspire One (D255-1268) running Windows 7? I need higher numbers than 1024×600.

UPDATE 3/26/11
After several minutes of trial and error with one of the employees over at BestBuy today, we found out that netbooks can’t set a different resolution for the external monitor unless it’s the only one selected. The duplicate display option will default to the netbook 1024×600.

These are my settings. Monitor looks good!

Adding meta name="robots" content="noindex"

Just added <meta name="robots" content="noindex"> to a bunch of pages. How long will it take before they’re gone? The countdown starts now!

UPDATE 4/21/11
Well it’s been a month. So far, Google has removed about 50% of the pages.

UPDATE 5/28/11
Been seeing some pretty significant drops the last few days. At this rate, shouldn’t be too much longer before the pages are gone.

UPDATE 6/22/11
Three months later. Fifteen pages to go.

UPDATE 6/25/11
Nine pages to go.

UPDATE 7/4/11
Six pages to go.

UPDATE 7/7/11
Four pages to go.

UPDATE 7/16/11
Three pages to go.

UPDATE 7/17/11
One page to go.

UPDATE 7/19/11
And they’re gone!

So it took just about four months to remove the pages.
