Bookmarks for 29th October 2012

These are my saved Pinboard links for 29th October 2012:

  • Dhal Curry – One-pot wonders – Recipes – from Delia Online – Dhal is simply the Indian word for lentils. The best kind to use for this are the red split lentils which most supermarkets stock.
  • Angel-hair Pasta with Thai Spiced Prawns – One-pot wonders – Recipes – from Delia Online – Angel-hair pasta (capellini) is, as the name suggests, the very finest shreds of pasta, now available in larger supermarkets. Large prawns also come in packs, peeled with the tails intact: the very large varieties come in eight per pack, the smaller ones in 12 per pack. Either way you need one pack per person as a main course. 

    The recipe is spicy, pungent and just the thing to make use of some previously prepared Thai Red Curry Paste.

  • Black Bean Chilli with Avocado Salsa – One-pot wonders – Recipes – from Delia Online – The now familiar chilli con carne has suffered from its fair share of convenience shortcut versions but when it's made properly, with the right ingredients, it is still a wonderful concept. I think this version is even better than the original, using black beans and introducing the subtle flavouring of lime and coriander – and adding a contrasting cold garnish at the end.
  • wget Command: Download Compressed File By Sending gzip Headers – have turned on gzip compression as modern web browser supports and accepts compressed data transfer. However, I'm unable to do so with the wget command. How do I force wget to download file using gzip encoding?

    GNU wget command is a free and default utility on most Linux distribution for non-interactive download of files from the Web.

    It supports various protocols such as HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP protocols, as well as retrieval through HTTP proxies.

    You can save the headers sent by the HTTP server to the file, preceding the actual contents, with an empty line as the separator.

  • Anvil for Mac – Available Now – A beautiful menubar app for managing local sites.
  • Prowl – iOS Push Notifications – Prowl is the Growl client for iOS. Push to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad notifications from a Mac or Windows computer, or from a multitude of apps and services. Easily integrate the Prowl API into your applications.
