Dependency tree for mashup

As I was going through code at work, one of the call was spawning 12 threads to call various web service to populate its underlying data tables.

Now, with all the mashup that are in place out there, wouldn’t it be nice to have a RoR module that will accept a dependency language for the different web service calls it needs (kinda like what make does) and spawn off the head vertices as seperate thread? I bet it’s already out there…

The brave world of ice cream

My ice-cream machine that I bought arrived today, so I started thinking about all the possibilities: Chestnut ice-cream, Chai ice-cream, Hollick ice-cream… Little did I know a Google search turns up more recipe for the same ice-cream than I can possibly imagine. Seems like it is going to be more complicated that I thought.

It has to do with how each ingredient alters the characteristic of the custard, and how egg yolk, cream and milk contribute to compensate the texture, fat and emulsification agent of the mix. I guess I’ll let you know after this weekend.
