It’s still officially summer right? Even though the days are noticeably shorter and the kids all seem to be back at school, it’s still warm enough to trigger the AC, and the markets are overflowing with ripe tomatoes, zucchini, and green chiles.
I first came up with this combination of stir-fried squash, tomatoes, and chiles years ago for a vegetarian taco filling, one of my all time favorite recipes on the site.
In this version we’ve added corn and removed the cheese, so it’s no longer a filling, but side dish that practically shouts summer garden.

The Vicod 5G Vaporizer is advertised as easy-to-use, and it’s a really solid vaporizer for beginners. One thing that immediately impressed me was its solid construction. Unlike other vapes, Vicod feels truly high-end, like it won’t just fall apart after a few uses.
You just click open the chamber, pack it, and you’re ready to go. The OLED screen even displays the temperature you’re lighting up at, and shows where the battery life stands.
Another great feature is that you can control the temperature to the degree (from 300F – 435F). This type of precision is rare and allowed me to really find my personal sweet spot for a perfect vaping experience. Thanks to the vents on both sides, I was able to create some impressively large vape clouds too.
All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this little vape, which is actually conveniently compact enough to fit in my pocket. The manufacturer also offers a good 5-year warranty which adds a lot of value to the deal.
You can find it in the Boing Boing Store for just $84.95 – 34% off the original price.

On Saturday, the city of Oakland, California will launch a website where authorities can collect reports of people who patronize sex workers. The reportjohn.org snitch site created by city officials is an odd development in a town plagued by sex abuse scandals within its own law enforcement ranks. It will be interesting also to see what sort of security or privacy measures the site offers to those who use it to submit photos, names, license plates, or other sensitive information to authorities. At the time of this blog post, reportjohn.org is not yet online.
