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.
