    I've been reading The Register since I can't remember - 1998? - something like that. And it's my go-to source of information and news. During 9/11 when all the news websites couldn't cope, I ended up reading the latest on The Register. I go to the register before I go to the bbc news website every day. The reporting, if slightly eccentric at times, is brilliant - no bullshit, well written and just the right level of sarcasm. And now I get to read more of it. Well done!

      Then just for you (well, and everyone on my web site, but if I told you where that is, I could be accused of the Great Sin of Marketing) - Why Every Kitchen Needs a Knitting Needle!

      ************************************************************************************************************

      There isn’t much garlic doesn’t go with. Well, except vampires. Though if you want to know why vampires really hate garlic, you’ll have to read my 'XXXXXXXXXXXXX' :-).

      So. Garlic doesn’t go with vampires, at least it doesn’t if you’re the vampire and not the walking bottle of yum a vampire tends to look for on a dark and stormy… No. Not on a dark and stormy night. Definitely not on a dark and stormy night.

      Cue lightning :-).

      But garlic goes with most other things. Well, maybe not trifle. Perhaps. Though…. Hmmmmmm….

      No. Not trifle :-).

      Still. I was talking about garlic recently somewhere else. And I suggested every kitchen needed a knitting needle. A what? Yes. You heard right.

      Every kitchen needs a knitting needle.

      So why does every kitchen need a knitting needle? Listen very carefully, young paddy-wack. I shall tell you.

      To start with, get some big Portabello mushrooms. When we say ‘big’ here, think about two or three to a plate. A dinner plate. A big dinner plate :-).

      Next, take out the mushroom stalks. This is where I’m supposed to say ‘keep them and use them for… (insert something you never get round to doing here)’. I won’t. Eat them. Raw. They’re good. Alright. OK. If you insist. Chop them and mix them with some shredded cheese. Look at the cheese. Decide you don’t like that cheese. Throw it all away. So. We're good with the whole 'stalker' thing, right? Right. Onward and downward. Yes, Jones Minor. I can see you there at the back. Or sideways.

      Next, chop up some fresh garlic. Don’t chop it too fine. You’re going to make garlic butter. It’s really, really hard. No, really. It is! It's like, so hard, it's harder than a.... OK. It isn’t. Hard to make, I mean. Just don’t tell anyone. It spoils the mystique :-P. Yes, if you insist. You can use store garlic butter if you want. But chop up some garlic anyway .

      Make garlic butter.

      What do you mean, how? OK. Get a ramekin. Yes, or a little bowl. But don’t call it a little bowl. Pretend it’s a ramekin. Why? Because I said so, that’s why :-P.

      Put some butter in the small bo… in the ramekin. How much? It’s going to thickly cover the frilly sides of your mushrooms. Why do mushrooms have frills? Well, they’re Victorian mushrooms. They’re embarrassed. Yes, that means I don’t know. Or I do know and I don’t care :-PP.

      Throw your chopped garlic on the top of the butter. Use a fork to mix it in.

      Alright. Yes, I probably should have said ‘let the butter get soft' first. So sue me :-).

      Throw on some more garlic. Mix some more with the fork.

      Throw on some more… oh. We did that bit.

      Now get some tin foil. Make little cups/ boats big enough for the mushroom caps to sit in. Yes. I know. They were big mushrooms. So make big boats :-). The rim of the boat/ cup should come higher than the top of the mushroom that’s going to sit in it.

      Yes, you can wear a pirate hat while making the boats if you like.

      Yes, or a sailor hat.

      No. Not a Stetson. Oh. Alright then, Jones Minor. You can wear a Stetson. Yes, I know Stetsons are cool. Will you put the gun away now, please? Pretty please?

      On with the motley. Whatever motley may be. Take your mushroom caps. Take your knitting needle. See? You knew a knitting needle was going to come in somewhere, right? Well, it is. It’s going to go in the mushrooms. Push holes through the cap, frill side to skin side, with the knitting needle. Don't worry that the holes seem to close up some. OK. Are you ready? Now for the next hard bit that's not really hard. Really ready? So....

      Cover the frilly side of the mushroom caps with the garlic butter. Make the butter layer thick. When you've made it really, really thick - add more garlic butter. If your skin starts to blister, and a blonde runs through the door clutching a stake - you're a vampire. You probably aren't going to like the mushrooms. If you're not a vampire, put the mushroom caps in the tin foil boats.

      Now heat up the oven. HOT. Put the mushroom boats on a baking tray, or in a shallow pan, and in the oven..

      This is where the magic happens. The secret’s in those little holes you made. The butter starts to melt in the caps - and runs down through the holes. The melting butter cooks and flavours the inside of the caps, then through and pools under the caps. The oven’s hot. So the butter’s hot. It cooks/ fries the skin side from the underneath. And remember those bits of garlic you mixed into the butter? They won’t fit. Down the holes. So they sit there on the frills. Cooking.

      This next bit is purely optional. You can put the mushroom caps under a hot grill (that's a brolier for our colonial cousins) for a while to brown the garlic a little. But you don't want to let them burn or scorch. Really. You don’t. Trust me on this.

      No, I’m not a doctor. Yes, you can trust me on this anyway. Well, about burnt garlic, at least.

      OK. You’re done. Take the caps out of the boats. Throw away the boats and the melted butter, unless you don't want to. I have no idea why you wouldn’t want to throw them away, but the choice is entirely yours :-P. Pat the bases of the mushrooms dry. Put them on a plate. If they live that long

      So there you are. Why every kitchen needs a knitting needle. Or at least, why I think it does. Now it’s your turn. What unusual item is in your kitchen, and why?

      No. Not that one. I’m probably too young :-).

        I think a some chopped up bacon in the top of the cap, or nice butchers sausage, black pudding and serve with an fried egg on top, don't want no veggies type meals if they go ahead with this suggestion :-)

          Re: Grub/nosh/snacks

          @Salts

          And as you have swiftly and wisely seen, this is one of the benefits of the Knitting Needle Special - it's highly adaptable :-).

          Variances I've tried:

          1: Include the chopped up bacon, both with it mixed into the garlic butter and put on top to crisp while grilling the garlic

          2: With suitable mushrooms that dip well in the centre) an egg cracked on top of the garlic once the mushroom is cooked, and put back in the oven to bake or under the grill to cook.

          3: Add a side of pan-fried steak (striploin). Fry the steak in that melted butter that collected under the caps because it's got all that lovely garlic (sorry to those that hate or are allergic to garlic) flavour in.

          4: Ditch the silver foil boats. Make quality beef burgers, but thicker than usual. Make boat wells in the burgers, and sit the mushrooms in the wells. Now the garlic butter melts down through the mushrooms, and into the burgers as they cook, to help them cook through and flavour them. When they're done, the mushrooms are cooked into the burgers - put them on a plate and enjoy!

          So no. No risk of veggie-ness here - unless you want it that way. The choice, as they say on all the bad games shows, is yours! :-).

      > vegetable oil in your turbo diesel

      Why, that works perfectly well with almost any modern injection pump (up to 1/2 oil). With minor modifications you can run on pure oil (eg colza oil). All is needed is a serious boost to the pre-heating circuitry (once the engine is hot it runs on pure oil without a hitch). The torque is (reportedly) increased, too. But the exhaust smells of fries...

      I've only seen the full mod on agricultural machines as it's illegal on public roads, but I do know a number of people who routinely run on 1/2 vegetable oil in their unmodified turboD car.

        According to this BBC article, it's not been illegal since July 2007 so long as you don't make more than 2,500 Litres.

          Re: Motoring and Cooking Section

          Oh, making fuel is not illegal but where I live any mod to the engine (such as supercharging the pre-heating system, required in order to run on pure vegetable oil) have to be rubberstamped by the appropriate authority before the vehicle can be considered road-legal. Perhaps it's not the case in the UK though.

    The suggested non-IT subjects for the weekend will tend to merely pad out the home page synopses. Such articles should be a rare leavening of El Reg - not an almost unrelated weekend binge. By Monday any IT articles from the previous week will have paged out of view - with Fridays' IT articles liable to be missed. That may also make following new comments a bit more awkward - if they were not bookmarked.

    Most of the normal IT articles are not time-critical - often having appeared in the mainstream media a few days earlier. What is needed is a bit of traffic shaping to provide a smooth data flow - spreading the normal number of articles over seven days rather than five. The active moderation over the weekend will be a big bonus. That means interactions will progress during a weekend's leisurely reading - avoiding several people making the same comment which is currently only revealed on Monday.

    Not just a queue then?

    it'll be nice to see innovative breaking news and fresh content, not just a queue of press releases that didn't merit space mid week.

    how about a slot for Dominic Connor writing whatever the hell he pleases?

    Not nearly enough evil headhunters M-F.

    HW...

    I'd like to see some more news on HW hacks for gaming or other not-IT-industry uses...

    Also some DIY IT/HW articles would do fine to me on weekends. They would do too on the... erm... weekdays.

    Weekends

    So if I get tired and emotional, you'll find them for me ?

    May I suggest...

    ..a section dedicated to the review of various Bulgarian airbags?

    Looking out the window

    I see the garden. Perhaps gardening could be an option too? Or DIY, el Reg Style! I have a few projects in the to do jar. Just not finding the motivation or... err the motivation to get moving. Maybe some success stories might give me the foot in the ass I need?

    It's Friday, work is a distant memory, have a pint!

    Rack of the week

    I fully recommend a Rack Of The Week.

    We can start on the first Sunday with a nice gander at a Dell Blade server. The Cooler the better.

    There is a subset amongst IT types that love to share their "set-ups" and hovels. Some being cool, others for the horridness of them.

      Been done, though it may be time for another update...

      Ventblockers, 2009.

      Ventblockers: Rise of the Dustbunnies, 2010

      Maybe it's time for a re-imagining directed by Tim Burton, Ventblockers III: Revenge of the Mice, starring Helena Bonham Carter as the deranged mouse which craps all over the inside of your PC. There may even be room for a bit part by Gary Lineker?

    Take a break on the weekend.

    I appreciate the effort and I think it's going to be lots of fun to get new and varied content from The Register, but you need to take some time off and so do we. I will agree you definitely should have a mod/copy editor working though. I look forward to new content from Alistair Dabbs and especially Tim (Rocket Windows) Worstall. The Register often has details you won't find elsewhere, and you're not afraid to call a spade a spade. Plus the headlines and the humor, oh my gosh you manage it like no one else. When's your next story on the death of the Queen?

    Hate it

    Saturday, 12:30CET. I'm wanting to read Dabsey. Only just posted.

    PLEASE, just put everything up on a Friday like normal, and let us browse at leisure. Don't f**king drip feed us like moronic Mail readers. Reg readers have the ability and knowledge to pop on line whenever and choose what we want to read and when.

    I want to sync my Reg Android app on a Friday and have a cache of stories when I'm away from 3G coverage.

    This is JUST to force people to check up more regularly though the weekends, thus improving your Ad display rate. I seriously thought the Reg was above this, but apparently not.

    More 'user' SPB stuff

    More home HW hacks would be good (whatever happened to the robot lawnmower ?), especially if they have frikkin lasers.

    You could start by doing an article on this guy (warning, it currently runs to 41 very long pages and takes more than a weekend to read it all), there is some serious power tool pron to exite the jaded (including doing things with angle grinders I'd never imagined such as using an angle grinder on wood, WTF!).

    Filling the void

    Yes, a good idea to fill the void with, perhaps one or less of:

    O Visits to techy interesting visitor attractions (challenge someonw to do the Lighthouse Museum @ AB43 9DU) - I visited Bletchley following one such Reg article.

    O Essays involving some crystal ball gazing - we are still using von neumann architecture and that will have to change if something like memristor technology takes off.

    O The best 10 (educational games, sci-fi books, geek presents, perl manuals, single-board computers, microbreweries in some random location)

    O More tales of remote working scenarios

    Cheers
