SousChef: Recipe creator for windows

no comment

I like cooking, so, when the muse takes me, I will often attempt new recipes.  I use an android App Called Bites to store recipes. The main advantage of this is that there is a companion app called Trolly which can read in the ingredient lists as a shopping list.

So far so good. However I have a whole bunch of free recipe cards that you can collect from outside supermarkets. and instead of them sitting on my bookshelves, taking up space or worse still, being thrown away without trying it, what would be great, would be if there was a way to get these recipes into Bites.

This is where SousChef comes in. SousChefis a windows application that will create recipe files in a format that Bites can understand. The way I tend to use it is to make the recipe file on my desktop and then mail it to myself. It will appear in the inbox on my phone which I can then open it into Bites.

This is a V1.0 release. I will be making alterations to the code ,  but right now it works

Table of contents seems to be missing from Training Guide: Programming in HTML5 with Javascript and CSS3 by Microsoft Press

At least books created using the Quickly Ebook template have tables of contents built automatically as chapters are added.

I’ve reported this issue to Microsoft Press –

Today I experienced the combination of 2 of my favourite things – Humble Bundle and Dr Who.

That’s right – for like $15, you can get your eager hands of a veritable shedload of comics!

Hey there @cineworld – what’s the deal with your 3D glasses?

Rach has decided that she wants to see Godzilla sooo badly. So I proceeded to book the tickets.  She wants the full atomic monster city smashing rampage action, so I have booked us tickets to see it in IMAX, Birmignham.  This screenshot from the cineworld site shows information about booking to see Godzilla.

The screenshot here is pretty small – the important line is this :

PrePurchase - glasses included

PrePurchase – glasses included

Your selected screening is IMAX with Standard seating.

This is an IMAX 3D performance, glasses will be provided free of charge at the cinema.

Please amend your options from the menu above if you would like a different performance.

So imagine my surprise when post purchase I saw this :

Post Purchase - what I have to pay for glasses now ?!?

Aparently glasses are now not included

Ticket prices for 3D performances do not include the cost of the 3D glasses. You can buy your glasses separately at the cinema and keep them.

 

erm – gee thanks Cineworld – I’m so happy that I get to keep something I paid for – but this subtle changing of the offer between pre and post payment looks suspiciously bait-and-switch like.  Perhaps it’s error on the confirmation page – but I’d be interest to hear from @Cineworld about their thoughts about this.

 


 

UPDATE: – Cineworld responded to this post
