Roast recipe

3 to 4 pound roast beef or round steak
salt and pepper
1 small onion, chopped
1 pkg. brown gravy mix
1 cup water
½ cup catsup
2 teaspoon dijon mustard ( i used reg mustard and a little worchester sauce)
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ cup red wine (optional)
Place meat in slow cooking pot. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper. Combine remaining ingredients; pour over meat. Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours.
If desired, add small peeled potatoes and carrots. Sauce can be thickened with 2 tablespoons flour dissolved in ¼ cup of water.
I usually skip the potatoes and carrots and mix the roast or round steak with egg noodles.

PDANET and USB cables for the HTC Evo...thought it was a driver problem.

First off, I'll say I'm successfully using PDANet on my Win 7 laptop with my Sprint EVO. Composing this post with it, in fact.

Initially, I was having problems getting my laptops (XP and win 7) to recognize my Evo. "Unrecognized Device" or something like that.

Downloaded the HTC/Sprint sync software hoping that would install an appropriate USB driver...but the sync software wouldn't work at all. It should work fine on Win 7 (professional in my case). Then I started looking around the net for ideas. One chap recommended trying a different USB I did. Went back to the HTC cable instead of the cheapo generic one I bought on ebay. Instant success and no failures since.

APPARENTLY, SOME OF THE CHEAP MICRO USB CABLES are not fully compatible with the Evo (or possibly other devices). It seems to charge just fine on the laptop, but not so good for data transfer.

If your phone doesn't work on your laptop, try a REAL cable with the HTC sticker on it.
