Foodproof - new web 2.0ish food site

Foodproof is a new still-in-beta food community site. Has some interesting features. I know the people running it and they would like some interested food people to get in the sandbox and play around - this is NOT a blog or blog aggregation and it is non-commercial and likely to stay that way for some time. If you want an invite (the only way to get in right now) please let me know - via the email you will be able to find if you look at my regular blog site - tomatilla.com (sorry to be cryptic - don't want to get spammed)

This Post was written by Owen from Tomatilla!

Owen- why would we want to check out the site? ie What's the point. Right now it does sound awfully spammish.

There isn't even an about page. I'm not going to create a login for something that isn't revealing itself.

Hmmn. I can't look at much without registering and that always puts me off.

Also your description kills it (no offense, honest) - the web 2.0 thing was so last year? :p

Hey Owen, that mushroom photo looks like a death cap. Doesn't look like any of the edible mushrooms that would be actually safe to pick.

Well - it's up to you. Re the what you can and can't see. It's in beta - early beta - changing all the time - NOT a public beta yet - hence the invitation thingy.

Anyway - three people asked for and got my invitations for last week. So my work here is done.

Elise - I am not responsible for the site in any way so I can't tell you for sure but a quick check looks to me like that is absolutely NOT a deathcap. But also not a common edible...

Flying RC helicopter used to set people back thousands of dollars. People had to buy the rc helicopter kit (which comes in hundred small pieces - unassembled), servos, engine, starter, gyro, receiver, radio controller, a hundred other equipments, and of course - fuel. When everything has been purchased, you still have to assemble it! The exterior is made of anodized aluminum to resist corrosion, impact and scratching. With a brushed aluminum finish, modest styling and sleek form, Micro Flashled flashlight makes a discrete addition to a lady's handbag, a schoolchild's backpack, earthquake kits, or as an emergency light stored in a car or an RV glove box. The flashlight fits comfortably in your hand or pocket; to prevent against accidental activation, Micro Flashled features a push-button switch in the back of the unit to operate the led light . It measures 4.5 inches long and just over an inch wide, and without batteries weights only 3.5 oz, with 3 AAA batteries, 4.8 oz. The PlayStation Portable has been around for three years, but the machine you might buy today is far different from the one you'd get in 2005.
