Ruger PC9

Looks like I’m in the market for a new gun. Ruger just announced a new pistol caliber carbine called the PC9. It’s take down 9mm carbine that looks like a slightly larger version of their 10/22. Plus it has an adapter so it will take Glock mags. What’s not to like?

This is why you don’t procrastinate

I have to admit I’m a terrible procrastinator. If it can be done later why do it now? That philosophy seems to work out most of the time but occasionally it comes back to bite me in the ass.

It’s Here!

First teaser trailer for the next installment in the Star Wars series. I can’t wait to see it.

The dumbification of society

Mobile is making us stupid.

With the proliferation of mobile devices and the subsequent response of web providers, the internet is being dumbed down at an alarming rate. Just take a look at your average “cutting edge” web site. Huge text, large white space, endless scrolling. And interaction has been reduced to cryptic truncated responses in a way that no one actually uses to communicate except on line.

Call me old but I miss the internet.

Evolve, adapt….PFFT!!!

Happy new year!!!

happy new year

Here’s to hoping that 2017 is a great one.

FreeBSD 11 desktop installation with XFCE and slim

So you have a shiny new fresh installation of the recently released FreeBSD11 and you want to try out an alternative OS desktop. Installing one of the many Linux distributions would be easy but boring. Why not install your own desktop OS from scratch?

Awesome tacos

Figured I’d throw another recipe up so I can find it easily later.

The Perfect Taco
Cuisine: Mexican
Author: Jailer
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: A LOT
These are some of the best tacos I’ve ever eaten.
  • Authentic corn tortillas
  • 2 lbs ground meat
  • 2 4-6oz cans green chiles
  • 1 4-6oz can jalapenos
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 28oz jar diced tomatoes
  • lettuce
  • shredded cheese
Salsa-Make ahead so flavors can meld
  1. Blend tomatoes, 1 can of green chiles and jalapenos until desired consistency. Refrigerate to let flavors meld.
  1. Brown meat and drain and return to pan. Add 1 can green chiles and spices and simmer over medium heat.
  1. Spray both sides of a corn tortilla and grill both sides in skillet over medium heat until just starting to brown in spots. Remove from heat and layer in meat, lettuce, salsa and cheese. Enjoy!



This is Bruce’s (BABore) posole recipe. It’s fantastic! This recipe is for a large batch, I usually make it with half what is listed here.

I like this as is in a bowl with some cheese melted on top but my favorite is breakfast burritos.

Scramble up some eggs and mix equal parts posole and egg and throw a little cheddar cheese on top. Eat or wrap in saran wrap and freeze. Makes for a nice quick easy “stick to the ribs” breakfast on the go.

  1. Brown the meat in a large cast iron dutch oven over high heat with couple Tbls of oil.
  2. When browned up nice, add the garlic and cook for a minute or three.
  3. Add the hominy and stir in well.
  4. Cook for a few more minutes then add the beans and stir in.
  5. Add about 2/3rd's of the picante sauce and mix in well. Add more as needed to just bring things together and coated well. You don't want it soupy.
  6. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper to your liking. Shut off the heat and top with the cilantro if you like it.
Recipe Notes

That it! If you like more heat, I've been know to add ground red Chipotle, canned Chipotle diced up, chopped green chilies, sliced pickled jalapeño, even canned corn. It's good straight up, in a tortilla, reheated in a fry pan with a couple eggs for breakfast, or even cold out of the fridge. Freezes real well too.

Bacon and Dried Beef

Well this weekend was the culmination of 2 seperate smoking experiments, BBB (Buck Board Bacon) and Bearcarver’s Dried Beef. I’ve been wanting to try bacon for a while but I was too skeered to spend the money on a belly and screw it up.
