the fact that its called Smell O Vision means these people are morons.
Wouldn't it be called TeleSmell? vision and smell are different scences duuuuuuuurr
even still the idea is stupid, and if it even takes off i'll eat my hat.


if it was direct neural smell simulation that would work - like virtual reality.. but hey thats like 100 years away.

As the article notes, the device is called the "ScentScape." Smell-O-Vision was my joke. Though I was tempted to go with Professor Farnsworth's Smelloscope.

Just out of curiosity, if you were to install your original WoW CD now, and then had to download all the fixes, how much would you be downloading? 15 Gigs?

Quite possibly. Though to be clear, these hotfixes are server-side only.

Even looking at that place's menu, I still can't reconcile how Yankees classify BBQ vs how Southerners do. Like the main menu item is a plate of wet ribs, but are they smoked at all? I didn't notice in my cursory examination. Then they have some pulled pork, but don't tell you any details about it, either. Did they boil it then smoke it? Grill it? For Yankees, there is no difference to these processes as they call them all "bbqing" where for us, eat version or combination creates different flavor and texture to the meat.

That was the big complaint for me, is though the meats were smoked, they did not have the proper smoky flavor, and I tried the pulled pork, the brisket, and the ribs. The wings were tasty, but again, I tried the "Devil's Duel" and they were only about middling hot, which was surprising. Some of the apps were excellent though, the deviled eggs were great and the fried green tomatoes were outstanding. The sides I had were very good too, they were the cole slaw and the fried rice. As I said, it was all good enough, but the lack of smoked flavor on the meats was a let-down, considering that is the essence of BBQ.

Still not working on the front page Blue, only in this Comment Section link.

Edits take about a minute to show on the front page, but they are immediate in story and comments views.

Hi Blue, it's the theme to Civ IV, not V.

Yeah, thanks. Sorry about that. The typo was corrected immediately, but your comment showed up one minute after the post!

I wonder if this thread has broken any records at Blues for the most post count.

Nope, 120 more posts to break into the top 10. Whenever you search for something using the "Search!" box, the popular threads listing shows all time threads, rather than popular this week.

I do find it odd that you have a lock that requires a key to be used from the inside.

It's probably a New York thing to prevent being able to break a pane of glass in the door and reach in and unlock it, though if you are willing to break glass to get in you could always use a window. This certainly seems like overkill for us, as this is not a high crime area at all, and I'm guessing it is also possibly a building code violation as a fire hazard, which is one of the reasons I like to keep my keys in the lock (which completely eliminates the crime prevention aspect too). If I ever change that lock again I'll probably get one with a knob on the inside.

Rockn-Roll wrote on Feb 10, 2011, 11:52:
Forgive me for pointing this out, but when Mrs. Blue opened the door she would have seen one set of keys (hers) on the outside and a second set (yours) on the inside. I think seeing two sets of keys in the door would have most people thinking something was wrong and be extra cautious and figure out what was wrong i.e. that you had left your set of keys on the inside.

It sounds like you are over-thinking this. She unlocked the door to let herself in, and probably had stuff to put down, went back to the door and absent-mindedly locked it with my keys thinking they were hers. As I say, absent-minded, not conscious (though I can't even completely decipher the rest of the theory you present).

Why on earth are you still on Vista?

It's what the machine came with, and it wasn't causing any problems, so I didn't feel any burning need to upgrade, so that's what the restore function restores. As I say, if I realized how long it would all take, I would have done a Windows 7 upgrade.

How long the restore will take is still not clear, as I'm still installing Windows updates. Yeesh.

Archer is probably my favorite TV show of the 2000s. I've probably watched 2010's first season about 8 times already. I'm not exaggerating.

Probably The Wire or Breaking Bad for me

All three of those are probably in my top 10. But don't forget Deadwood and Mad Men.
