When I was
forced asked to write a blog post, naturally I did what anyone would do when looking for inspiration: I went home, opened a beer and started streaming old episodes of MacGyver. There is something truly marvelous about combining a few simple household items and getting yourself out of a near-death situation. As MacGyver put it himself,
“It’s kinda interesting how you can put one thing with another and cook up the right formula for stayin’ out of trouble.” – For Love or Money (Season 2 Episode 22)
After a few days of collecting data, sketching some ideas, and staring deeply into the eyes of a massively oversized picture of Richard Dean Anderson, I think I have created a utility that gets at the underlying brilliance of MacGyver. Call it amazing, call it magic or perhaps just call it MacRecipes.
