We are on the cusp of a TFL event

Ever since time began, as far asTFL is concerned, there apparently has been a singular most bookmarked entry in the annals of the website.  LilDice's Jason's Quick Coccodrillo Ciabatta Bread has withstood all comers and outpaced the pack, by what I once described as the incomparable Triple Crown Secretariat racing against aging nags.  It wasn't even a race!

Now that Floyd has performed a purge of inactive accounts, my how times, and "most bookmarked", have changed!  Sometime soon, the also incomparable txfarmer and her post from years ago, 36 hour baguettes, is scheduled to take the lead.

it is a shame that txfarmer is relatively quiet on the site these past few years.  She, along with Siao Ping and a very small handful of others, set the standard for what we bakers could attempt to live up to.

In advance of this momentous event, hats off to txfarmer.

Both are missed.  I don't see any new posts from them anymore.

Wonderful baker. I miss his rye breads.

that it just takes posting a comment to keep a thread alive? If so, perhaps we should start a massive campaign to just say "we're not letting you go so easily" on our favorite entries?

Just a thought, I've bookmarked so many things that have helped me learn.

His  algorithm and/or selection criteria may not be what you anticipate.

I just report the news, not make it 🙃

Perhaps Floyd could clarify how this works and either allay or elevate folks' fears about what went and what remained.

with her walnut sourdough and a couple of others that I bookmarked and haven't gotten to…
