Hello, In about two weeks I'm going to be moving out of my apartment and I cannot move in to my new apartment for two weeks. So I will spending those two weeks on my university campus, I have everything I need to live there, except for a kitchen. I have a fridge and a microwave, but no sort of oven. So my question is what are some cheap food that I can make to eat and still gain weight, without using a stove or oven?Also what are some food items I can order in bulk at the moment that are super cheap on websites like amazon? Like Granola bars, protein bars, or just some really good deals that are available on amazon.Thank you for the help!

Hi r/analytics, I just put out a beta version of a tool that automatically generates and adds filters to your Google Analytics account to filter out referral spam. If you are like me, you've seen more and more of these bots showing up in GA and ruining your data. The biggest offenders are things like free-social-buttons.com and buttons-for-your-website.com and the like. So this tool adds filters automatically to get rid of this stuff.Currently I have it limited to 5 profiles per user because my Analytics API access is limited, but I have applied to increase that limit so you could do all of your profiles at once. It filters out a list of about 20 sites that I have found that are the worst offenders, but I am looking to make it a user-generated thing where you can add spam sites you've noticed and they get added to the database. I also want to make it so the filters update over time, so you can run it once and then the filters automatically update each week when new spam sites …
A lot of my websites are linked from my personal website, mattgarrett.me, and there are hundreds of bots coming from darodar, free-share-buttons, simple-share-buttons, get-more-hits, stuff like that.I know there are a lot of options in handling this data. I can make filters in my analytics, but it's getting heavier and heavier to add them all to the list, and they're actually starting to wear down the websites bandwidth load, and there's more every day. If I don't block comments, the start pouring those into my spam queue, too.How have you guys dealt with this in the past?

This week I look for (and find) a new personal standard for burgers in Burger Bistro’s Kobe Burger w/ Bacon. The Burger Bistro 1663 1st Avenue, New York, NY 10028 (646) 368-1134 http://ift.tt/1qf4wF6
The Burger Bistro is a small, unassuming place on 1st Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side
where the menu is a single laminated sheet with both sides full of options, the lion’s share being the burger options
(type of patty, bun, toppings, sauces and sides).I came here knowing exactly what I wanted –
a Kobe Burger on a brioche bun, cooked medium, with bacon as the only topping.
The fact that I could have Tater Tots as a side was even better.Speaking of which, the tots would have stolen the spotlight were it paired with any lesser burger.
Which brings me to….. the burger.Best. Burger. Ever.The Kobe burger was done perfectly, the bacon was crisp and tasty,
and the brioche bun held it all down and provided the finishing touch to…The Burger To Which I Will Now Compare All Others.But enough about…

When Nonna’s says they’re “the home of the magic slice”, they aren’t joking around – this is an ABack in NYC this week – on the Lower East Side at Nonna’s L.E.S Pizza for Grandma’s Magic SliceLike the POV foodporn? Like and subscribe for more!Here’s a little more about Nonna’s, via their website: http://ift.tt/PcZHRC“This passionate Italian-inspired restaurant brings more than just great pizza to the Lower East Side,
Nonna’s goes above and beyond by creating niche gourmet-quality lunch and dinner selections using
fresh, homemade mozzarella and a special homemade sauce they slow marinate cook for 5 hours in their special custom tilt skillet.From imported olive oil to imported Prosciutto, you are truly getting a taste of the old country with each and every bite.
Each mouthwatering dish is made daily, or to order, and Nonna’s promises only the freshest ingredients like fresh basil leaf and ripe tomatoes.”OK, now let’s see what everyone else says about ’em:4 stars on Yelp (on a basis of 13…

This week, it’s off to Chelsea to observe a belated Canada Day with poutine and a burger from Big Smoke Burger.Continuing the POV footage with the same camera and a better head mounted rig – makes a world of difference IMHO.Where were we… oh yes – Big Smoke Burger is a Canadian chain restaurant with a franchise in NYC.“Our burgers feature gourmet ingredients that are sourced from top quality producers and local when possible. Our menu features hand-cut French fries made fresh every day and cooked in trans fat-free canola oil. Hand-spun milkshakes, house-made sauces, traditional poutine and a selection of unique beverages are also available.via http://ift.tt/1oBfUyyThe poutine is the star of the show, assisted ably by their burgers, beer, and Boylan soft drinks (the Diet Black Cherry is my favorite).Only Yelp and Trip Advisor had ratings:3 stars for Yelp:

A social network is more like a large indoor concert: the more people you pack in, the more you will hate every other person there; they’re making you sweaty and you can’t see and every time you move you get jabbed in the ribs even if the person didn’t mean to do it – but the more people there are, the more likely it is that someone around you is a jerk and really means it. Eventually, an alternative comes along, and a bunch of people gradually strike out and sets up camp somewhere new, forgetting that the problem wasn’t really the particular site, or the app, or the company in charge, but the fact that it was full to bursting with humans. It’s like packing up and moving houses because you hate your furniture.
