Not trying to tease, it's just so simple i barely qualifies as a recipe.

Cut the tips off some chicken wings and feed them to the dogs. Separate the rest of the wings into their two parts, the double bone and the "drummette." Boil them in beer for 15-30 minutes then grill them over medium heat, turning frequently. When the skin is browned and crispy, set them aside and let them cool a bit. Heat some Frank's Red Hot sauce and butter until the butter melts (tradition calls for a 50:50 hot sauce to butter ratio, but mine is more like 90:10), and toss the chicken in it until it's coated properly. Serve with celery and blue cheese dressing.

Couldn't be easier, or more delicious. Chef

Blue, you are a legend. I will slowly learn US cuisine. In exchange, I must throw you a New Zealand barbecue recipe or two sometime.

Blue! C'mon, I still use your texas-style chili recipe frequently; you're going to tease us with grilled buffalo wings and not share the recipe?

No fair!

I am utterly bewildered why they don't use the NZ 18+ AO guidelines. C'mon Aussies, Do we have a common market or not?

Pffft. I gave up thinking that DNF would come out years ago.

I hope 3D realms mgmt team is broke, I hope that no one from that team ever gets hired in any industry again, and I laugh in the face of the fanboys.

Their hubris and mismanagement cost us a game, but that's it.

What a bunch of dicks the 3D realms mgmt team are.

2. that's just crazy Aug 21, 2008, 15:32 AJkiwi
 
They're releasing a 2 year old game based on the GTA 3 engine in the same quarter as they release GTA 4 to the PC?

Um.

That may be one of the stupidest business decisions I've heard in a loooooong time. Piracy isn't the problem for PC gaming. Idiot publishers might be.

7. another digg? Feb 19, 2007, 15:15 AJkiwi
 
Errr... news story aside (Vista is installed on my test machine and is NOT ready for primetime, especially for gamers), why the heck are we getting all these digg links nowdays? It's just another damn page to click through to get to the actual story... I go to bluesnews for news links, not digg links. I go to digg for digg links! Am I missing something?

6. A dialogue. Mar 16, 2006, 17:53 AJkiwi
 
At lionhead HQ...

Peter: Hey, the game's been out for months, and virtually no one has bought it!
Other guys: Yeah, you'd think that the demo we released prior to the game in order to market and advertise it would have drawn all the people who had negative experiences with the crashing and frustrating first game!
Peter: Demo?
Other guys: Yeah, you know, the one we gave you a month prior to release to market the game with!
Peter: Ohhhhhhhhh... that demo. Um. I think I've still got that somewhere. Do they help market games?
Other guys: Yeah, sure. If you release them PRIOR to the game's failure in the market...
Peter:...oops.

16. So what's the big deal? Sep 14, 2005, 18:05 AJkiwi
 
Okay, I'm sorry, but I just *DON'T GET IT*.

I've lived in the US, and yet there are still things I don't get about it - like the clinging to the consitution for things that patently don't make sense.

So: Game rating ages are attempting to be enforced by law - sounds perfectly reasonable, we do it in New Zealand under the same rating system as movies and dvds and publications (you know, old style pr0n) - and this is "unconstitutional" on grounds of freedom of speech? Thus creating lots of legal arguments, etc, etc, which will eventually resulting in a redrafting of the law so it will have exactly the same effect but rephrase things so that people can't object on constitutional grounds?

Right, that seems like a good use of taxpayer and industry cash.

24. fixes ONE major bug... Aug 9, 2005, 20:03 AJkiwi
 
The sound bug is fixed? That's good...

Now, about the "Cannot work out at gym" bug that has been plaguing me for a couple of weeks of play...

Dammit, they patch this thing and they only patch a couple of the showstoppers? what about all the gameplay bugs? the gym!? the basketball!

*grumble*

18. 6 years?? Oct 9, 2002, 18:12 AJkiwi
 
Wow, doesn't seem like that long!

Every morning, I arrive at work and carry out my "wire run", looking for news and tech stuff that might be relevant or interesting to work.

aardvark.co.nz --> idg.net.nz --> www.wired.com --> WWW.BLUESNEWS.COM --> www.cnn.com -->www.stuff.co.nz

Bluesnews has been somewhere in that list for 6 years now... WELL DONE, BLUE!! Bloody good show.

No, that's it.
