google voice / video chat?

I’m itching to try this out.


Has anyone else downloaded the plugin yet? I tried in on our Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and it didn’t work – at least not with this cheapo webcam I use. On the Mac, the video test picture as shown in the screenshot above never came in — it remained a black box — though I could right-click on that black box and set some Flash player settings for audio, video, disk space usage, etc., which gave me hope. But either those settings I chose aren’t being committed, or there’s some deeper incompatibility between my SpeedLink 6820 web cam and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard and the Google Chat plugin for Firefox/Safari 3.x.

Same camera on Windows seems to work, but I haven’t gotten the chance to test it with anyone yet. Haven’t tried it yet on Linux and I’m not hopeful (still no Google Chrome for Mac or Linux AFAIK).

Anyone? Anyone?

bbq sauce?

I’m getting more adventurous.

My favorite barbecue sauce contains:

  • tomato puree
  • vinegar
  • sugar
  • brown sugar
  • salt 
  • worcestershire sauce
  • molasses
  • natural smoke flavor
  • “spices”
  • food starch-modified
  • dried garlic
  • chili powder
  • mustard flour
  • onion powder
  • xanthan gum
  • sodium benzoate

Except for the preservatives and texture manipulators, I can totally do that. It might take a few iterations, but it’ll work.

How do you make yours? I know I could find all kinds of stuff on the web, but inspire me.
