    Experiencing food poisoning is awful. But when you can be exposed to E. coli just by opening a bag of raw spinach, one wonders just how far one has to go to be safe.

    Actually, in all the...

    I was very pleased to hear there would be a second season of this show. I greatly enjoyed the first season. Samuelsson gets a bit theatric for my taste, but he's an excellent chef and easily...

    We've had our reports frozen for a while now. Occasions I know of for having to lift the freeze: insurance bids, any loan (or loan refinancing), job applications, background checks. Some (maybe all)...

    I've tried them in the past. They were decent, though they didn't cost anywhere near as little as $1.99. My main issue with them is that, though they may be "all-natural" products, they're still very...

    Office, for many years, was a vector for malware through its macro/scripting language. Didn't matter if you used that language; it still presented a risk.

    Between that and because I did not have...

    I skip those articles. They're clickbait. They're all bingo hits on individual designers who relate their personal pet peeve at the moment. There's no attempt to achieve a consensus within the...

    I really don't worry about it on the MacBook Pro. Not that Macs can't catch/transmit/act as a vector for viruses; I'm just aware of not visiting sketchy Web sites, I tend not to load unnecessary...

    D. All of the above. :)

    Seriously, it was easy for me to define what I wanted from living simply. But it has been a struggle to maintain it.

    Had one for the longest time. Rarely used it because it was a total pain to clean up, even seasoned. Gave it away. If I want grill marks, it's easier to fire up the barbecue.
