Bac’n is currently run from a wonderful office space in downtown Portland called PIE. It’s in a great open space with lots of room for the geeky and bacon loving types. So when DjangoCon came to Portland last week, hosting the code sprints was an obvious decision for our Django-loving creator Michael Richardson (don’t forget that is written in django).

We had plenty of bacon on site, and so therefor offered it up for our visiting coders. When a few of them took us up on the offer, none of us were sure what they’d do in their hotel rooms with packages of bacon (and a few loose slices as well). Well, we’ve got an answer. They went back to their presidential suite overlooking the city, began fiending for the salty meat, and made a make-shift griddle with empty pint glasses and a standard hotel iron.


Yes, you read that right. Cooking bacon in your hotel room on top of the included iron.

This has to be the greatest idea we’ve ever seen, so we solute you Eric Holscher and Robert Lofthouse. You get an immediate induction to the Bacon Hall of Fame. Thanks be to for giving them the inspiration and wherewithal to do such a magical endeavor.

    Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
