I've always wanted to plug into one of the ethernet ports with my laptop on the device and see what happens. Not only could I gain additional programming myself, I could upload new content too. Maybe that can be the solution to the dig-e-plaer fiasco, have it as such the passenger uploads their own content for the following passengers to watch, like you tube, but better. Wouldn't that be a concept!

If this did not work, is it legit to trade in a battery from our infinite supply for additional concept.

OK it's been four days since anyone has posted in the forum lounge, so I nominate myself to bump it up off of page 2!

The digeplayer batteries are recharged and there is pacific salmon sashimi on the counter.

Did we run out of Wasabi for the Sashimi?

Someone may have to make a LIH run soon to pick up some more, and maybe some Ahi... rumor has it that Princeville has a great Buffet!

Soup

So, what's the soup tonight? I'm fighting a cold. I hope it's chicken with stars.

Why? It had been out of OUT OF SIGHT just long enough for most people to forget what a bad idea this thread was in the first PLACE.

Mmm...soup. Assuming you don't want to make your own, if it weren't so far, I'd suggest either Vagabond Blues in Palmer or The Bake Shop in Girdwood. I've yet to find a match for either of those in Anchorage. Actually, if anyone has any recommendations for good soup closer than either of those two destinations, I'm all ears...

There are one or two Vietnamese restaurants in ANC that will serve you a nice big bowl of Pho.

Kim Chi soup (on the Korean menu) at China Garden (I think) on Fireweed will also clear your nasal passages.

Actually, I was going to mention that, since Bob lives exactly a four minute drive from a Carrs, but I forgot. Thanks for reminding me!

I had a nice broccoli cheese yesterday. My school actually makes it themselves, since each week its a different consistency... either bigger broccoli chunks or smaller pureed pieces.

Is the BR serving any in ANC?

A quick google yields location,

And here's a website of the place.

I never heard of it myself either, looks nice though, in South Anchorage, fairly close to at least 2 FTers residences
