Blue couldn't finish typing, because as he got to that sentence he realized the Tree guys were actually home-invaders and they silenced him.

Lol... sorry for the cliffhanger.

Seriously though, without reading the rest of the post... that is one of the things I'd be wary off. You hire some guys to do something: tree stuff, roof stuff, security-system stuff, etc. then they know the layout of your home and perhaps your schedule.

Having them "stop by" unannounced would give me pause to wonder what they were doing there.

Those are good concerns to have when dealing with workers. In this case, this is a bonded company we've dealt with before. They also have never entered the house, so I'm less concerned than one might normally be. I think it was all an honest mistake.

Try eating some veg and fruit once in a while, Blue. You eat way too much meat and meat by-products.

I don't actually mention most of what I eat here... just chronicling the adventures of Manstovia, where many a veggie gets grilled as well.

And meat by-products? Really? Do you know what those are? I don't even let my dogs eat that stuff.

I just got a magic item from some defiled bones, so their nerf isn't working? Or maybe I'm not understanding what qualifies as destructible.

I think they mean pots and urns. Defiled bones are like chests.

I believe you're thinking of "Demolition Man" as the movie involving profanity being banned (recall, Stallone curses over and over to get enough paper to use the toilet, not yet having mastered "the three shells"...)

D'oh! You are correct... thanks.

What is a "de facto" review of a cheat's effectiveness? I mean, what other kind of review is there?

The other kind would be if the site listed it as a review of cheating methods rather than as an analysis of why one player started cheating.

Were you expecting a different explanation?

I don't see many people talking about their kids around here. Makes me wonder how many other members are DINKs in their 30's (or up).

We were talking a bit about how DINKy our circle is, and whether this reflected our situation or a change in general. There were four couples at dinner Saturday, and only one had kids. Definitely not a baby boom.

Really Blue? So this was fixed in a few days instead of a few months (ie: how it was for Diablo 2), and this brings into question the benefits of always-on? /facepalm If anything is shows the benefit of it.


"They use this incident to once again question the game's inconvenient always-on DRM."

Emphasis added, though it seemed clear enough to begin with.



Right, that's why you tacked that troll bait story as the lead onto a story regarding the official terms of service being updated for the Authenticator and the RMAH.


So a story about possible item duping in Diablo III isn't newsworthy, it's "troll bait"?

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.

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.

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