Ça fait un certain temps que je me tâtais pour préparer un pizza-burger. Voila qui est fait.


  • 1,1kg hachis de b½uf
  • 250g lard en tranches
  • 300g emmenthal
  • 2 pizzas tomate-mozarella



Tasser la viande dans un cercle à tarte et recouvrir de fromage rapé. Cuire au four à 200 °C jusqu'à ce que le c½ur de la viande atteigne 70 °C.

Faire frire le lard jusqu'à ce qu'il soit complètement grillé, puis le hacher grossièrement.


Une fois cuit, recouvrir du lard grillé haché. Cuire les 2 pizzas.


Déposer la viande sur une pizza, et recouvrir de la deuxième posée à l'envers.


  • La viande seule est trop sèche et un peu fade. Essayer de la mélanger à de l'½uf et de la chapelure, des herbes.

LPRng and Windows LPD Server

Categories: [ IT ]

We have two kinds of printers at work: old HP LaserJets and newer Ricoh multifunction photocopiers connected to the same Windows-based print server (accepting the LPD protocol).

While no particular option in /etc/printcap is required to print with LPRng on the HP printers, the bq_format=l option is needed for printing to the Ricoh ones. This tells Windows that the data must be printed as is, as explained on the LPRng mailing list. But why does it work without this option on the HP printers then?

The story takes place on an alternative Earth in the mid-18th century. While Mau is returning from the island where he performed alone his ritual to become a man, a tsunami kills everyone on his own island, while crashing a ship on the same island. The only survivor of the ship is a 13 years old girl, Daphne, who was traveling to rejoin with her father, governor of some British colony. Daphne invites Mau for a tea party in the wreckage of the ship, and eventually become friends and learn each other's languages. Refugees from nearby islands are coming in; Mau learns to be the chief of an island, while Daphne learns the ways of the women in those parts. The voices of the ancestors speak into the heads of the two children, the Grandfathers ordering Mau to restore the altars of the gods which where washed into the sea, while the Grandmothers ask Daphne to open the cave where the bodies of the island's greatest soldiers are burried and free their souls (or something like that). In the cave, the children discover that Mau's ancestors had a wide knowledge of science and technology (they knew about Jupiter and Saturn's satellites and had probably built a telescope) and the legends hint that they had travelled around the world. People on the island live in the fear of the Raiders, cannibals who worship the god of Death. When two mutineers of Daphne's ship, who were thrown out on a small skiff, arrive, they manage to get rid of them and prepare for the coming of the Raiders, who have joined forces with the chief of the mutineers, former first mate Cox. When Cox finally arrives, the islanders frighten the Raiders enough that they accept a duel between Mau and Cox, which Cox looses. Some time later, Daphne's father finally finds his daughter, and is soon joined by another ship, bringing him news that he has become king of England, since an epidemic has killed all of the royal family and plenty of potential heirs. Daphne convices her father not to consider the islanders as savages and to acceed to their demand to become not a part of the Empire, but of the Royal Society of Sciences. One year later, Daphne comes back to the island to bring all the tools the islanders had asked in exchange for the golden door of the Grandfather's cave (8 tons of gold). The world's best scientists are also coming to study the cave and give the islanders lectures about everything.

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



Arthur is 10 years old in 1960. He spends the summer with his grandmother, but times are tough and she will have to sell the house in two days if a solution isn't found. Arthur's grandfather has disappeared some time ago, but the boy finds out that he's left to search for rubies he had received from the Bogo Matassalai during his travels in Africa. The treasure is now hidden with the Minimoys, a people of very small creatures who were neighbours to the African tribe. Arthur discovers his grandfather's riddle leading him to finding the portal leading to the Minimoy's kingdom, right in the house's garden. After shrinking to the size of a Minimoy, he meets their king and the princess, and helps them fight an attack of the Seides, a group of rebels lead by the dreaded Maltazard. Along with the princess and her little brother, Arthur travels to the Necropolis to stop Maltazard before he conqures the Minimoy's territories. After some adventures, they are caught by Maltazard and meet Arthur's grandfather in jail. Maltazard, who had decided to flood the Minimoy's territory through the tunnel linking the two areas frees the adventurers and let them run in front of the rushing water. Moreover, Arthur notices that Maltazard's throne is made of the rubies. They manage to escape in time to warn the Minimoys and close the gate at their end of the tunnel. When Arthur and his grandfather come back to their world, they manage to find the location of the rubies and save the house.

“Organically grown barley malt is difficult stuff to brew with. Unpredictable at best. Organically grown hops are a different matter. Harvests are poor, the hops often look terrible, but their brewing quality can be spectacular! Perhaps it's like grapes and terroir – The plants that have the toughest time produce the most flavour.”

Smells very nicely, but the tastes has something of a cold ashtray. Contains malted barley.

Ridgeway Brewing, Oxfordshire, England. 4.3% alcohol.

Very interesting summary of current (1997) knowledge on food and cooking sciences. One drawback is that all the recipies are given using exotic volume units, and many use corn syrup, which is hard to find in Europe.
