How to cook hot dogs in the microwave? – UPDATE

You would be surprised how many people search my blog for “how to microwave hot dogs”.  So I have been revising my hot dog making craft over the last year and decided to post my new method of cooking / boiling / microwaving hot dogs.

First get 2 glass bowls, one is the size of the hotdogs and the other is just acting as a weight.  Second fill the bowl about 1/3 up with water.  Third insert your hotdogs.

Now insert the small bowl on the hot dogs this will keep the hotdogs under the water to boil the them.  Set the microwave for 4:00 on high and hit start.  Then they should be done.  Also, the bowls will be hot!

Another hotdog eating tip:  When eating crappy hotdogs, try adding lots of Tabasco!

Hamilton credit card acceptor problem – Update

To get the Hamilton credit card acceptor out of the unit there are 4 bolts that hold it into the acw-5.  Unbolt them and the credit card acceptor comes right out.  Then remove 2 screws and the acceptor comes off the holder.  I then mounted the new acceptor and reversed the process, tested my credit card and everything worked great!  Now I can accept credit cards with my acw-5.
