Absolutely. And it was far more secure. I know no one is going to learn what's inside my potatoes because they are hashed and salted.

It gets worse with Jewish doctors. Put 5 of them in the room and you
get 25 opinions.

How well did you salt it? Did you use sea-salt, or himalayan salt? Or did you settle for the usual iodized, in which case it's all scrambled and you data is probably corrupted?

Actually the standard in my kitchen is Kosher salt. Go figure. :)

What happens if you use Kosher Salt on pork?

It gets one step closer to becoming bacon! (And I guess the salt becomes Treif, but ... BACON!!!)

I just got one of these:

So now I have the ability to run my outdoor grill as a flat top.

I have started learning how to cook Teppanyaki style food. There will be quite a lot of banging cutlery around and shouting in mock Japanese.

Awwwww... I am very disappointed.
Why not just *learn* "sushi bar Japanese."
While that is not exactly what you will be doing, the effect will work!

Easy answer to that:

I don't like sushi.

Unless there is some other type of food that is cooked "sushi bar style" ?

What better way to season a new flat top than to cook bacon on it!

(Yes I know, two slices is not nearly enough, but it was 8:00 in the morning and I just wanted to get the first season on before I started work today, and as a bonus I got a breakfast sandwich out of it.)

There should be no other way to visit a citadel but the text client.

Citadel would be dead and gone by now if that were the case.

Ye of little faith.

But on the other hand it would be the best damn ten people around. And hell, ten people usually made up the
core BBS users back in the day.

There is a mountain of truth in that.

Consider most "blogs" today. They are either personal fluff or disorganized diarrhea of the keyboard. Useless in either case.

And just don't even bother with the so-called (anti)social networking sites. They define "waste of time" at a sublime level of definition.

Back in the day you needed a modem and the "entry level barrier" was that you also needed to know how to use it.

Then you needed a local BBS list, which usually required that you actually HAD a friend who'd give you one.

And then you needed to either BE intelligent or be able to pass yourself off as intelligent (is there a difference?) or you would end up being the target of a seemingly-endless (but always funny, at least initially) flame war!

But yes, the core usership of all the truly good dialup systems rarely exceeded 10, if that. At least on the message boards (rooms). Some of those dialups were mainly file-sharing (yes, that went on in the 1980s). But for real messaging? Ten's a good number. Even works with five or six.

A windowing interface is ok for those that like it.
Personally, I use the text client for just about all my Citadel stuff.
Always have; probably always will.

There is a very large "middle group" of people who are neither old-skool BBSers nor fluffDweebs who we wouldn't want online anyway.

During the years of 1996-2008 or thereabouts, many of those folks frequented Internet BBS's.  It was essentially a second golden age.

After that, however, most of them went to Fecesbook and will never come back.
