80% sale on Assassins Creed where? I only get it to 30%. Or is it only for American residents?

My error, sorry about that.

Nice advert Blue

Nice snide comment netnerd.

I have a problem with Skype sometimes grabbing focus from games, and while I probably wouldn't buy (or subscribe to) this, I thought it might be of interest to others with similar problems.

If it's not, please feel free to attack my integrity.
Forgive me El Presidente Quiver I did not mean to attack El Presidente's integrity Bawling

Puppyeyes Forgive? Nervous

Sure no problem. No forgiveness needed, I wouldn't hold a grudge over that, just wanted to defend myself. This was just a news post: I don't do advertorials.

I'm hopeful that he will eventually grow weary of failing to mark the stove and/or walking around in a soggy belly belt, but so far that's not the case

I'm gonna have to go with "doubt it". Animals (like humans!) can be incredibly stubborn...

Yeah, I hear you. And I think I've mentioned before that the Gunnar-man's adaptability I wrote of is sort of voluntary. When he wants to be stubborn, he can be quite mule-headed.

Chefs put salt and pepper on *everything*.

That really sums it up. When something has too little salt, a chef will say it needs "seasoning." It's that basic a concept.

And it's not really even about moderation: The adverb most frequently used as an instruction for salting meat before cooking is "liberally."

I'm a grown man, so I'm not supposed to cry. Too bad, I did. That picture is beautiful.

Yah, same here. I'm a sucker for that stuff.

As for other questions/remarks: Gunnar-man has always been fine, even when he was flooding us, but the belly-belt has been working, though he shows no signs of relenting.

And I sent NetSol the blinking light diatribe word-for-word.

If you don't want skype interrupting your gaming why leave it running while you game?

Because it is how my friends contact me to play.

My urge was to reply asking why someone would assume someone was too stupid to think of that solution, so I think I'm in a bad mood.

Apologies.

My father was a burger fiend, but he never did seasoning. Might have been why a home cooked burger doesn't really appeal to me, years later.

There's a myth that home cooks are stuck on that salting meat before cooking it draws moisture to the surface to be evaporated away. This leads to a lot of them cooking meat without seasoning it first, which is a crippling error right off the bat.

It's science: Salt does that to everything and it toughens meat. Just "season" it with everything BUT salt! Try it yourself and you will see that it is 100%. Best example: Bake a Peeled Potato One Salted and One Unsalted.

I won't come out and say you are just wrong about this. But you will be hard-pressed to find any trained chef who will agree with you.

Salt make's food taste better by sucking out the taste from within the food. Works great on clotting blood to but stings a bit to much for my taste.

This time I'll say you are just plain wrong. Salt brings out the flavors in foods, it doesn't just move them around, as you say. This is one of the most basic understandings in the culinary arts.

A cursory Googling of the topic will show this to pretty much be universally accepted.

Love to have a 5 Guys or Fatburger here. The one time I tried a White Castle while traveling, I wasn't overly impressed.

Ugh, I've always hated White Castle. Those nasty little overcooked sliders and the soggy bun. They are shit even fresh off the grill.

Basically, if you want a good burger here, you end up going to a mom and pop place (Ron's, Fat Guys). And that's not a bad thing at all (yea for local business!), but I would like more variety.

Well to agree with the post below yours, the best burgers I have are the ones I make myself: It's not even close.

Btw, to augment the recipe he mentions, the meat needs to be seasoned before cooking. Chef

This behavior is male territoriality (try saying that after 2 pints of beer!), so I'm assuming he's entire?

In a younger dog, getting him fixed might solve the problem, but in older males like the Gunnar-man it probably won't help - too late for it to make a significant difference.

He is, as they like to say "intact." I've seen it argued both ways whether this contributes to the tendency to mark, but most seem to agree that it does, which also seems the intuitive answer. But even those who feel that neutering helps with marking seem to agree that by the time he's all grown up this horse is out of the barn, so while we may be tempted to castrate him as a punishment, it doesn't sound like it will solve our issue.

How old is he, though? I thought he was getting on in years? Seems odd for him to suddenly start doing that, unless there's a new dog that moved into the area that visits your yard/house at night...

Creston

He was an election baby, so he will be eight in November. He has always been juvenile though, so it's not *that* surprising that some signs of maturity are eventually coming through.

And it does seem like this was all very coincidental in talking about moving, but whether that actually triggered it or not, he seems to clearly be operating purely on instinct at this point.

Blue I assume youve been to the vet? Maybe the problem is a physiological one rather than psychological?

She concluded that this is classic male dog marking behavior. I think she's right: There's nothing at all that's gone on that indicates otherwise. For example: Left alone, he will mark the stove within *minutes*. If I bring him up to my office with me, he can go for hours with no issue.

Really? Post about congress taking 5 weeks off? How about posting about Obama and His vacations? How about posting His schedule? Guess what, I read his schedule for a few days the other day. He met with the VP and after that it was all about fundraising. If you are going to bring politics in here, be at least fair about it.

Funny, I thought Congress was comprised of both parties. You really can take offense at anything, can't you?

Jinx clearly has an attitude problem. Like that one person in every office, if he'd stop bitching at people and concentrate on what he should be doing, he'd be a lot more successful.


Jinx's attention span reminds me a lot of the Gunnar-man's.

I know... like I said, it just flashed for a second, and the smoke detector went off before I had the chance to correlate that it stopped when he started staying in my office, the marking was clearly a male lifting his leg, etc.

It's funny the illogical thoughts that can flash through our minds.

Heh, yeah, my sad attempt at humor. I meant that your "slower" DSL connection hasn't affected us at all.

Are you really noticing a difference? Web surfing and stuff would seem to be about the same. You'd just notice it if you tried to download all 30 GB of Max Payne.

Surfing web pages you generally don't notice the difference. Streaming media and things like that become problems, though.
