    This is the first FidoGazette issue for 2015.  As you probably
    noticed, it covers the months of January-March.
    
    Life gets crazy sometimes as we all know firsthand, and the first few
    months of 2015 were certainly zany over here... 
    
    Some great things and some bad things.. sadly one can't select which
    things will happen in life so you go with the flow :)
    
    We sold our house in Windsor NY very quickly once we put it on the
    market in late January/early February ( * Very good thing * ) 
    It had taken quite a while for contractors to get repair work done on
    the house after pipes froze, but when they were done, it looked great
    and I'm sure it's move-in quality had a lot to do with the quick
    sale.  As usual though working with lawyers, realtors, etc. took
    time.  That was the unfortunate bad thing, but necessary.  
    
    Just when we thought we were on top of things, and would have free
    time again, our car was totaled this week.
    
    Another driver rammed our car from the rear, sending our car
    careening through one of the snow-packed backroads of Ithaca 
    ( * geez!  * ) Ron was driving and he's fine, but our car is not...
    Our funny looking red Kia Soul is dead, Jim(TM) 
    
    It's irritating because it would have been paid off soon.  Oh well.
    
    So for the next several days we'll be dealing with Insurance
    companies again, looking for a car and all that fun stuff.
    
    Anyway, that's at least part of what's been going on over here.  I
    hope your 2015 has been a bit more .... stable :)

    Eh... Let Me Google That for You...
    A Snarky Google-Search
    By Janis Kracht, 1:261/38, janis@filegate.net
    
              http://lmgtfy.com/
    
         (Let Me Google That For You)
    
    Try it at the above link, it is indeed snarky :)
    
    "LMGTFY is one example of a single-serving site: a one-page,
    one-purpose website with a dedicated domain name.  The site was
    created in 2008 by Jim Garvin and Ryan Geary, who have since created
    spin-off sites including Let Me Snopes That For You and Let Me
    Wikipedia That For You.
    
    The site was designed as a service to tech-savvy people who are
    frequently asked for help doing research.  The purpose is to gently,
    if somewhat sarcastically, point out that the person who asked for
    help could easily search for the information themselves.
    
    Here's how it works: On the LMGTFY website, type or copy the question
    into the search box.  A link is generated to a demonstration of a
    Google search for that information, which can then be shared with the
    person who asked the question." ... 
    http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/LMGTFY-Let-Me-Google-That-For-You
    
    If you try it, it's easy to copy the link and try the url you
    created.  When the person who asked the question goes to the link,
    Animations then show the 'searcher' what is involved in the search
    (...  and as you can imagine, not much is involved :) )
    
    lmgtfy.com is the perfect reply to those who won't RTFM, or for those
    who would rather ask you the question rather than google it
    themselves.  :)

    Stuffed Flank Steak
    By Janis Kracht, 1:261/38, janis@filegate.net
    
    1 large flank steak or 2 medium sized steaks
    3 slices bacon, uncooked
    3 slices, rendered and crumbled up
    1/4 lb. bacon rendered.
    2 stalks celery, diced
    1 medium onion, diced
    1 cup stuffing, see below
    
    1) Make the stuffing and set aside.
    
    Stuffing: 
    1 cup soft bread crumbs (Italian bread or white bread cut into cubes)
    1 clove garlic, minced
    Rendered bacon fat
    1 onion, chopped
    1 stalk celery minced
    Italian flat-leaf parsley
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon thyme
    1 teaspoon sage
    
    In a medium size frying pan, saute the garlic  and onions in the
    bacon fat until the vegetables are limp and the garlic is golden. 
    Stir in the seasonings and the breadcrumbs mixing well to coat the
    bread.  The stuffing should be moist, if not you can add beef broth
    or water a few tablespoons at a time.
    
    2) Saute 3 slices of bacon and reserve the bacon fat.  Crumble the
    pieces of bacon and set aside.
    
    3) Place the steak in between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound
    with a mallet gently.  
    
    4) Add celery, diced onion and crumbled bacon to the stuffing.
    
    5) Spread the stuffing on the meat and roll the meat up in jellyroll
    fashion.  Wrap 3 strips of bacon around steak, and secure with
    toothpicks.  Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350F for 45 minutes.

    INFO:
    
    Fidogazette is published by Janis Kracht, Editor.  
    
    If you have an idea for a column or a series of articles, 
    please contact me :)
    
    New! 
    Mailing-List subscriptions via 
          http://www.filegate.net/sub.html
    
    but of course you can always link into your uplink and use 
    Tick or a tick compatible program.
    
    Where to Send Your Articles
    
    Unlike most editors, I surely do not  mind running my mouth
    when there is a sparsity of articles for the 'zine.  I'd
    MUCH rather you sent in material...  lacking that, I will
    fill these issues with my meanderings and thoughts and
    hopefully we will grow into something of consequence here
    :)
    
    Write an article!
    
    If you WOULD like to submit an article, feel free to drop
    your article off at:
    
    Email attach to address: janis @ filegate.net
     
    Fidonet attach: Janis Kracht at 1:261/38
     Modem: 607-200-4076 
     Binkp: 1:261/100 filegate.net port 24555 
     telnet mailer: filegate.net
    
    If you are using routed Fidonet mail, don't send articles as routed 
    attaches.  They will fail somewhere along the path before getting here.
    Send them instead direct to filegate.net.
       
    Give it a title, sign your name and network address if you have
    one and send it along!
    
    Don't worry about the format, I can take anything you send me
    and mutilate it further as you can see above.  Linux is nice
    that way (g).  Spell checking your own work will help though
    (something I'm typically guilty of (g)).
     
    To send reviews or recipes to the Food section, email or
    netmail Janis as above.
    
    Email address for submissions to Dr.Debug:
      To send a question to Dr. Debug, email a question to:
          drdebug @  filegate.net 
      or post in the fidogazette echo!  :)
    
    To send a listing to the FidoGazette bbslist, email your 
    listing to:
      bbslist @ filegate.net 
    or post it in the fidogazette echo!
