Nasi Goreng

Sorry about the downtime issues — the IAM server just keeps overheating. It will almost certainly have to be taken down for a period later in the week to either move the existing internals into an improved case, or the software to a totally new box. I'll post information here of course but I'd recommend that if you have things like phone numbers stored only on IAM that you save them in case you don't see a notice (although I'd recommend that in general anyway).

I made a shrimp nasi goreng today, one of my favorite meals from childhood… I was recently asked how much these meals cost me, I guess in part because there's always decent seafood in them. I buy large shrimp, but I peel it myself of course, so at $7.99 for a big big of them it's probably about $3 a meal (so $1.50 a person) in shrimp, and then the veggies and everthing else, even if I'm lazy and use pre-made sauces, rarely brings it past ten dollars, so $5 a person…

Seems like a good deal to me. I actually ordered food yesterday — sushi — and it was terrible, and of course cost far more, and the wait to get it was much longer than cooking a meal from scratch… I felt really ripped off and probably won't bother with that again.
