MobileQuo 1.1 Released

Adam Scheinberg, our PHP guru at OSNews, fixed a number of things on the MobileQuo script and so here it is, version 1.1. Everyone should upgrade to this version. The script now supports caching (optionally), it’s more secure, more portable and Adam even fixed the DESCRIPTION+1 problem that pops up with some RSS feeds. Thanks Adam!

Now I need to find the time to upgrade the osnews, tuxtops and digg mobile pages to this version too. These 3 pages have some specific additions compared to the public MobileQuo version, so I will need to redo these by hand… Maybe I will do that tomorrow.

Diet Recipe: 70 Calorie Smoothie

I love smoothies! Depending on how it’s made (with ice cream, sherbet, or without), a portion weighs between 120 and 200 calories. Here’s a version that only has 70 calories and it still has the full taste!

Ingredients (for 1)
* 50 gr of frozen strawberries or cherries (20 cals)
* 1 sugar free Popsicle ice pop stick (15 cals)
* 80 ml pure orange juice (35 cals)
* 1 ice cube

Execution:
1. Remove the stick from the popsicle and throw it away.
2. Place all ingredients in the blender. Secure the blender.
3. Start the blender in high-speed, or in its ice-breaker mode (if it has such a mode).
4. If the ice doesn’t seem to break, add some cold water. Blend until smooth.
5. Pour into a glass and enjoy it through a straw. Beware of brain freezes!

Tip: Do not mix different kinds of fruits. They don’t taste bad, but they look like goo…
