I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Mac Users??

    My kids spilled a beverage in the old laptop, forcing me to "upgrade" my computer sooner than I planned. Not exactly in the holiday budget.

    I've debated switching to a Mac for years. I have yet to hear a Mac user complain. So, I went out and got a new iMac this am.

    Any other Mac users here? Any tips for a guy who has been with a PC for decades?

    You'll do fine. If you're a "I like to learn from messing around" guy, then mess around. If you prefer a tutorial, there's lots out there.

    My only tip is: no more spilling.

    If you have specific questions, let me know.

      Macs are great. The best thing is they seem to be free of virus attacks.

        You mean there are other real computers other than macs???
        I have been a mac user since the first 'apple' was released and not far off upgrading and waiting for the quad processor imac.
        They are very clever machines and a whole of software and games (heaven forbid using them on a real computer rather than an xbox or similar).
        You won't regret it.
        mfiore,
        The only problem will be apportioning time to get into your oven and cooking over your new toy.
        Run all your music, your multimedia, your phone and even run your house once it is wired up from your mac.
        My son uses his to control just about everything through his imac, he can even control his mouse and computer through his phone.
        As he pulls up his rather long drive, his mac is connecting with his phone to upgrade his details.
        Far beyond my mere capabilities.

          I'm a real Mac guy -- I even worked for the company a long time ago. FB.com is built using Mac's. If you haven't found it yet, check out Pandora.com -- it's Internet radio that only plays songs you like. We stream all our music through Airtunes speakers.

          One of the best quotes I read was something like "Mac is a BMW and PC is a Buick. They both get you there, but one of them is a lot more fun."

          If you are looking for a new computer -- for yourself, for work or for your kids, you can't go wrong. And Mac market share just keeps going up, so there is no risk of buying an orphan. Go for it.

            Re: Mac Users??

            Ten years ago my son was doing his first year electrical and electronics engineering course ar the local university and came home saying that he wanted to lease or rent a mac laptop for his studies.
            They only use Windows machines for all the electrical and electronics software and I asked why a mac.
            Because the others are too slow and antiquated.
            I bought him a laptop, it was running Classic OS so he then ran virtual PC, (to provide an environment that would then run a windows operating system) windows 98 and then his software programmes.
            He claimed that it was running faster than the windows machines at Uni.
            So when mac OSX was released, he also installed that so he could run 4 different operating systems and any programme that he wanted on a laptop!
            Very clever equipment.
            He now runs everything, and I mean everything of his 21" imac.
