Al dente for an American can have a very different meaning than from an Italian (French usually overcook pasta and their al dente is already overcookd for us)... and I was stating my experience with that particular brand. With other brands, both the better ones (De Cecco, Voiello and all the pasta from Gragnano) and the cheaper ones, I never had any trouble at all and they are never viscid.
Spending alot of time trying to find an XML file, Why do people say its on the server when asked the question where is the XML. Combine that with the fact IT is moving stuff randomly over to a 'better' system. I am now trying to find the manual that includes it as appendix, perform an Appendectonmy and all should all be good...
Good luck, we have a server where we store useful stuff like utilities, but strangely a lot of files went missing. Turned out to be the Antivirus which did not like .exe files, so it just deleted them !
Know the pain, I store all the 'well that might be useful' stuff on a USB stick as I have been caught like that in the past. Found the relevant document copied the xml and pasted into Notepad++ all is good!
Hah I got asked yesterday if we had a copy of a spreadsheet I used as a spec for an prototype I built 8 years ago for a project that never got off the ground. We have changed server styles twice since then (virtualisation is not the flavour of the year) and I have changded workstations 3 times.
So when I replied it MIGHT be on a server I was thoroughly abused by the devops assigned to find it hah hah hah.

[EDIT] Whoops each year, I guess it should be. Otherwise it's one hell of a salary! [/EDIT]
