Making the prison feast from Goodfellas

While the chance of us actually being in a movie is diminishing by the day, it’s not going to stop us from trying to blur the line between us and them as much as Hollywood possible.

Which is why we’re starting a new feature whereby we get an expert chef to recreate iconic movie meals and then tell you exactly how to do them at home.

This particular recipe takes three to four hours to prepare and cook, but as noted, “you have time and it’s worth it.”

NSHipster is a journal of the overlooked bits in Objective-C and Cocoa. Updated weekly.

I’d love a similar site for Python, or maybe even Java.

Nitro is the best way to get things done. It’s simple, fast and powerful at the same time. Nitro also syncs with Dropbox or Ubuntu One. Due to the power of Nitro, you’ll never get a “conflicted copy”.

I’ve been looking for a Linux alternative to Things — looks like I’ve found it.

Pullbox was released a while ago, but some of the later puzzles are so fiendishly difficult that I only finished it recently. A great title to play in short bursts, and thus a perfect fit for the 3DS.
