…because let’s face it, it’s lame! But the reconstruction of the site is taking a lot longer than planned. But, it will be back as soon as possible - hopefully much improved! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the archives, such as the Keeping Your Bento Safe and Summer Bento Safety articles now that the weather is warmer in the northern hemisphere. In particular, please be careful about the safety of your proteins - not just meat, but vegetarian protains too like tofu. Be safe and healthy! And wish me luck to finally get this site reconstruction done… -_-
Two quick bits of news:
A little technical note for people who read this site via Google Reader or another RSS reader, or subscribe to post updates via email:
I’ve switched over from Feedburner to another service called URI.LV. The reason I switched over is that Feedburner has kind of been neglected by Google (who owns the service) for a while now, and with their announcement that Google Reader is being shut down soon, it’s kind of logical to assume that Feedburner will fade away too.
(Incidentally, if you’re looking for a replacement for Google Reader and are Mac or iOS based, I’ve been using NetNewsWire for ever, even before there was a Google Reader. I highly recommend it. Otherwise if you’re looking for a web based solution Feedly looks pretty nice.)
So that’s it for the techincal stuff. Going back to talking about food next time. ^_^
If you are on a Japan Airlines (JAL) international flight this month, I have a feature article in the May issue of Skyward, their in-flight magazine. It’s called Bento Love and is about the growing popularity of homemade bentos outside of Japan…a subject I have a bit of familiarity with ^_^ They don’t have an online readable version unfortunately, but if you do get to read it I’d love to hear from you. Here’s the link to their table on contents. continue reading...
We moved the site to a new server...and for some reason Feedburner (the service that sends emails of new posts) decided to send out the last 10 posts again one big email! It shouldn't happen again (fingers crossed). My apologies for clogging up your email box!
I'm in the process of updating JustBento, and so you may see some disruptions to service over the weekend. Fear not though, the site is alive and well, just getting some work done. ^_^ If you need something to read in the meantime JustHungry will stay open (I'm working on one site at a time), where I've just posted the final lesson in the Japanese Cooking 101 course.
Also: if you're looking for a Mother's Day bento set, monbento has a 20% off sale on a very nice pink and white set right now. OK pink for moms may be a bit of a cliché but...it is very nice looking!
I'll see you back here next week, hopefully with the site still intact ^_^;
Update: Looks like all is well for the moment..iif you're seeing this line the move well ok!
My baby has been doing well, despite her mother’s absence. continue reading...
Expect several bento box and accessory reviews soon…and maybe a few surprises. continue reading...
