      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

      -MannDude

Decided to cook something up today:

 

Fried some bacon in cast iron skillet, then sauteed onions and potatoes in bacon grease, diced the  bacon up small and put it back in with the potatoes and onions, cracked a couple eggs on top, sprinkled cheddar cheese on top. Mmm. Damn good breakfast.

 

Starting to cook more. It's cheaper and better. Lunch later will probably be grilled cheese sandwich with tomatoes. 12 grain bread, big slices, no high-fructose corn syrup or any of that crap. Tomatoes from the backyard. Pepperjack cheese :P

I hate you.

 

A while back I used to make this potato dish.  Dice up potatoes, onions, bell peppers, and saute them on a skillet with olive oil.  When sauteing add some cajun seasoning, a bit of chili powder, and onion powder.  When the potatoes are soft and start to brown crack a few eggs into it and continue mixing.  Like you sprinkle copious amounts of shredded cheese into it and continue mixing it as it melts.  Move it over to a serving dish (usually a bowl).  Get a giant spoon full of guacamole and just give a nice spoon-full on top.  Get a little diced tomatoes and "sprinkle" a few pieces on top.  

 

It didn't have bacon in it and it's a variation of your own breakfast dish, but damn did I love every bite of it.  

 

Also, you should totally make some tomato basil soup with that grilled cheese sandwich.  I LOVE dipping the grilled cheese into some tomato basil soup and eating it like that.  

 

Damn it's 1:00AM and I'm hungry as hell.

I did the potatoes + onions + green peppers + salt + pepper mix in the oven the other morning.  Heap of potatoes wasting away in a cupboard.

 

Right now, well today, on the liquid diet.   Cytomax  Sports Drink now, earlier it was lemonade (fresh squeezed), in an hour it probably will be a beer.

 

Need to fit some solids somewhere into there.  Busy day though.

All of you guy's lunch sounds so interesting compared with mine. It's either the chicken and chips shop (don't particularly like it) or the sandwich bar or Greggs. Pretty boring choice near my school, and the fact that they're pretty much all sold out by the time I get there because there are so many students. :(

 

At home I don't really eat lunch, don't see a reason to do it. I can eat whenever I want at home, no need for a fixed time.

I just had half alright Americanized burrito from a regional gasoline chain that has gone all yuppie.  Wasn't up to snuff with say Chipolte, but was above the rubbish in the freezer section.

 

One of those days in my humble abode.   All work, no time.
