What’s This Hole in My Blog?

Somehow, the post for today didn’t post. Instead, it headed south for the winter, or something. Well, at least enjoy the picture. I sure wish they’d get this InterTubez thingie all worked out before I go crazy…

Chile Underground Reaches Major Milestone; Media in Awe…

This week the Chile Underground, your favorite place to read about zesty food, cooking adventures, occasional travel and unsurpassed levity, passed a major milestone. In fact, even if you’ve been following along at home you likely missed it. So I’ll point it out to you, just to be on the safe side:

We reached 1,000 […]

Comment Spam Fixed; CU Open to New Comments! Watchdogs Sent to New Homes…

Okay, maybe this time the Elves have gotten things under control. (I found a way to get the job done quickly. Just take away their beer and pretzels, and cut the cord on the TV. Then promise to bring it all back when the problem’s solved.) The several watchdogs the Underground has been using […]

Spammers Winning Again; Registration Required (For Now)

Google+ is Here! The Underground Is In; Are You?

Sometimes the IT (Insignificant Technology) Elves here at the Underground are completely asleep at the switch and behind the times may overlook an option or two for driving the CU to world domination promoting our efforts to convert the whole world to zesty food. For instance, no matter what threats and prodding I use […]

The Underground’s Comments are Back! (I Hope)

Recently the massive Information Technology Team here at the Chile Underground had to begin requiring commenters to be registered members of the site. That’s a tough requirement, and one I’m not in favor of as CEO of this burgeoning enterprise. (I like to think we’re friendlier than that; evidence notwithstanding.) So we’ve all been […]

Do You Urbanspoon?

There are a lot of review sites on that clever InterTubes thingie for finding good places to eat out. These include Yelp, Chowhound, Citysearch, Zagat, and the web appendages of all sorts of print (and other) media where food and drink get reviewed. It can seem like there’s too much information at times! Each […]
