A2 Hosting still has not fixed the Database after their servers failed AGAIN. A2 Hosting is the WORST!
Because of this, new posts are currently missing and I can only HOPE they eventually recover the table they didn't restore after their latest failure.

How to Write an Instant Pot "Smart" Script for the Bluetooth pot
While looking around for Instant Pot "Smart" Scripts, I realized that the only tutorial I could find for writing your own was dreadfully out of date.  So I got busy and created an updated tutorial.

Winter Update and Cooking
I haven't posted in quite a while... mostly because I have been hunkered down and doing nothing but keeping the fires burning (literally) and eating and cooking.... and I don't consider cooking to usually be something to post about.  With odd exceptions, like homemade pizza and a ...

Under Pressure
While the icy cold weather has seen me mostly soaking up the sun in the loft or stealing the cat's place in front of the fire, I also had a great Thanksgiving at my sister's house and had a few days with my husband home.  Included was a little online shopping (or a lot) and doing just a couple house repairs that needed hubby around in case I got stuck in a tiny hole in the ceiling above the master bathtub.  (Yeah... that is another story.)
In any case, since we decided that an induction stove/oven is ...

Not Shocking but a Little Bloody.

Quick Bare Phone Pocket / Slip Case

Frugal Fan Fix For Ferociously Freezing Failing Fridge
I actually did this mod/repair a while ago, but I wanted to be sure it would work well before I posted the how-to.  We got this fridge when we first moved to the mountains several years ago.  Used, nothing fancy, but in good condition.  Sadly though, over the last two years it has gotten worse and worse about freezing everything in the back and produce bins and leaving the rest not cold enough.
I started moving things around a lot to try to keep everything at the right temperatures, but with hubby home and ...

New Wii Sensor Bar Replacement6/6/2014 3:33:45 PM - 2 Comments - Read Full Post

How to Build A New Wii Sensor Bar Upgrade / Replacement
From the Archives:  8/8/2011
The Wii Sensor Bar that comes with the Wii has a relatively short range that can be a problem in a large room, and also has some trouble with correct cursor positioning on a large tv.  With a little research I found that the "Sensor Bar" is actually just a couple infrared LEDs that the Wii remotes pick up to detect the position of the remote relative to the sensor bar.  With just a little research and minor soldering skill, you can build your own ...
