Bleu, as a guy that's worked with some incredible chefs you pick up things over the years about things like brining. Restos don't do it - again unless it's a flavour bath - because there's no need to. Seriously, try what I said and see. Tent loosely in foil/cook/remove foil for maillard reaction/eat. You will see it works out perfectly.

Well, I doubt those chefs were actually grilling over charcoal in their restaurants, but I have actually never seen much argument against brining from anyone. And it is indeed to impart flavor as well as moisture: I have garlic and lemon and pepper and more in the brine. Chicken turns out better than without it, and I've tried various ways.

you always want to sear the meat first, not after you cook it through

otherwise its pointless .. the objective is to keep the moisture in

That's a myth. The sear is for flavor. It doesn't seal in squat.

And I'm all about the brine. Never realized there were a bunch of non-brining heathens around here.

Website? That's what qualifies as a "website" these days???

Half of the sentences in the post explain that:

There's nothing there to see yet.

It does mention PC:

Where is that?

I think I got ya beat Blue...

Today is the 25th anniversary of my fathers death, and my mom calls me at 12:30am having a heart attack.
Seems either she had a heart attack, or when she had a angiogram 2 days ago they tore something on the way out. So they can't do a CT scan cause that much dye in 72 hours would fry her kidneys.

I fucking hate May 24th.

I can't even imagine what you are going through. I don't know what to say except you have my sympathies and all my hopes she's okay.

Blue, you missed a ton of stuff (dozens of titles on big sales at amazon).

Well I posted the link to the Amazon sale. Would it have been better to actually the list dozens of individual titles here?

I was in the beta event this weekend, played several chars to see what one I liked best. I have to say my two favorites were the Warrior and the Thief. Had a blast with the beta. Some really intense battles in the multi stages events you do with other people. The game is going to be a Hugh success for Arena Net.

"So I'll tell you all the story 'bout the warrior and the thief of the night!"

I tried your chili recipe way back and it was delicious.

I'm planning on using the new one with some dried ghost chillis, but I'm a bit nervous on how much to put in. I may drop just one in and see. If its 8 times stronger than a habanero, then 1 ghost should equal "weapons grade" plus a little bit

I'd kinda like someone else to try tho, before I kill my workmates...

Funny, I wouldn't mind someone else taking the plunge first either. As I said, I may experiment with making some hot sauce using one of the ghosts to get a sense for how potent they are.

Glad you liked how the chili turned out.

Ok, just for the hell of it, I put up some examples of how I think the front page could be 'spruced up' some. Again, just for the hell of it, mainly just to get it out there and out of my list of things to remember to do. It feels like my brain is running out of memory lately. I wish I could just pop in another stick of...bRAM? Alas, that's not gonna happen anytime soon, so here you go: http://clubrigs.wordpress.com/2012/04/26/bluesnews-gradients/

I didn't get permission from Blue to show an altered version of the front page, forgive me. I just wanted to know what everyone thought of the idea... ;P

That's not an issue. If people have thoughts on this I'd be happy to hear them.

Which part did you get stuck on? I'm curious if it's the same part that had me for a while. Actually, there was a few parts that had me going WTF!?

I'll tell you the two places I needed much more work than expected:

There was a level where you leave the inside labs and need to get across to offices way up on the other side of a huge chasm. It required going back to the speed gel on the floor you previously used to get past some crushers and use it gain momentum to run into a portal on the wall and jump the gap.

The other is the one where you have to manipulate a blob of repelling gel through the pushing/pulling beam so you can drop it on a string of sentry guns on the other side of a glass barrier.


Interested if those were parts others thought were particularly hard or easy.

Does she know there is a law in California against grilling on the lawn?

I swear I thought I remembered something about it being illegal to grill with charcoal in California, but thankfully it seems I was mistaken.

And have you thought about travel with the dogs, Blue? I don't mean to alarm you, but all the horror stories of the past few years of pets and airlines has convinced me that if I had to move, I'd have to transport the animals myself via car. But doing that from NY to CA seems like a monumental task.

We are up in the air about a lot of this, but one thing we decided at the very outset is if we move, we will drive across country with the dogs. Hudson the wonder dog is not afraid of any beast on this earth, but she gets nervous about strange sounds, is never forced to be in a crate, and has noticeable separation anxiety. She's also pushing 12 years old, and has a heart murmur, and I'm fairly convinced she would not survive a plane trip even if everything went perfectly.

If nothing else, that will certainly make for an odd week of updates.

No worries... I tend to over-share, so I would have mentioned it. As much as anything, I avoided too much detail because I was mentioning this here before we'd even had the chance to break it to some friends and family.

Any chance she can move from the Glendale group to the NYC group?

Haha, I guess you are familiar with the situation. No, it seems the three offers they were doling out were Glendale, Manhattan, and the unemployment line. Much to Disney's credit, the last group was by far the smallest, but there's no indication that there is an option for anyone to choose between NYC and LA, so there we are.

Blue,
I posted about that series of ads from cdn.adexcite.com 3 days ago in OOB. Would it be better to email you about it when I spot this kinda thing again?

I guess so, yeah. Hopefully it won't come up, but if it does, please do shoot me a mail.

did you know that generalizing and absolutism are the hallmarks of dumbassery?

Seems like you have an infinite loop of self-deprecating tautology going there.

Anyway, posting nothing but messages expressing contempt for the intellectual capacity of your peers is the hallmark of someone who doesn't want to post here anymore. After all these years I think your message has come across, so this is the last time I'll request that you stop attempting to "elevate" the conversation in this manner.
