I don't know if Plex can stream to the XBox360, but I'd be surprised if it can't. If not, you could get a Chromecast for $35 and stream to that. [more]

Great answer by painquale, but it's really as simple as looking at the choices available for below-the-waist clothing. Women are like men in that they can choose to wear pants with very little societal backlash (today -- definitely not so in the... [more]

I have made pulled pork in the slow cooker dozens of times, and I frankly prefer a leaner cut. The fattier cuts are too... gelatinous. I'm sure it's different in a smoker or oven, but in the slow cooker I prefer tenderloin.... [more]

oceanjesse: I think the biscuit tour could work if we delegated biscuit gathering by geography, then convened at a central biscuit consumption location/base. That's genius, and also sounds like the origin story for a biscuit-focused supervillain. "Yes, my little biscuitty minions, go forth and bring me the best biscuits from all the land! Once I have them gathered together here in my secret biscuit lair, I shall combine their buttery powers for eeveel! Bwah ha ha!" [more]

sockermom: I'm planning on being there but my social anxiety and parking anxiety have both stopped me from attending other Mefitups in the past, so we will see if I can handle it. :) I can tell you that I was very anxious about my first MeFi Meetup as well, but the Triangle crowd is really cool and laid back. It's totally fine to just kind of sit at the table and listen for a while if you don't want to be part of the conversation. As for parking, there are a bunch of easy options in the area. If you let me know where you will be coming from I can help walk you through the route. And we will miss you leesh! Feel better! [more]
