I just tried via my Netherlands VPN, and I was able to apply the code. I'd wager that it's region locked.

YES , it does

In the photo yours says XCOM: Enemy Unknown but my cart says: XCOM: Enemy Unknown (NA). Different region perhaps (I'm in North America)?

$50 is a bit much for me on this game. I loved the original XCom games, and still play them to this day. I'm concerned I won't like this reboot BECAUSE I liked the originals so much. I hope they put out a demo, if I can get some play time on the game and it feels true to the original XCOM style the way I'd like it, it would be worth $50.

I've had pre-purchase anxiety ever since Brink.

I know you're being snarky, but on the off chance you do have a real need for a good viewer, tryout XnView. It has lot's of organization options.


Sweet, I'll check it out. I really do need something to organize my videos, and I really am bad at organization.

I wish I could find a candidate who would filter my porn properly. I'm horrible at organization, and have lots of porn. It really needs to get filtered into different folders, and maybe labeled with some searchable keywords.

3. Re: Iranian-American woman says Apple refused to sell her an iPad Jun 25, 2012, 10:46 Will W
 
I really hope that Apple store employee doesn't get in trouble for not selling the Ipad to the woman. The article only gives one side of the story, however even with just that information it appears that she volunteered the information that she was planning to purchase the Ipad to ship it to Iran, although it doesn't say if she gave that information in-store. If the employee sold her an Ipad knowing that her intention was to break US export laws, he would be an accessory to the crime.

It seems to me the Apple employee acted correctly in the store. I wonder if the employee at Apple Corporate was told that the Ipad was bound for Iran before advising the customer to purchase online.

Just make sure wherever you're moving has NFL Network, Week 3 of the Giants schedule is an NFL Network game, and if you're out of the area it most likely won't be on local channels. Then again, if you're out of area you may need to get Sunday Ticket to watch the Giants.....

You've gotta love Amazon Prime! :-)

Two suggestions I'd give are "Weber's Real Grilling" and ANYTHING by Paul Kirk.

I was expecting $29.99+

Instant pre-order purchase, love that they offer both Steam and DRM free standalone version.


And that if you buy from the publisher, you get both versions and don't have to buy them separately. That was a nice post-purchase surprise.

I bought direct from the developer (comes up as charge from Humble Bundle though). I want the Steam key, but would rather the developer gets the lions share of my cash...and I'm hoping that's what will happen.

I wonder if there are any moral qualms on Blue's part about advertising that ME3 is available for download like this...

Why would there be? He's reporting news, or rather linking to news, not telling you to go download the software. He didn't go search out links for torrent files, or advise you on how to obtain the software.

The Weber Smoky Mountain is the smoker America's Test Kitchen recommended in an equipment review awhile ago. They thought Big Green Egg was too heavy and too expensive but also didn't like it because of its lack of a water pan, though they really liked the constant temperature it kept.

The water pan is a debatable item, IMO at least. It's great for catching the fat drippings and keeping the charcoal from flaring up on me, but apart from that the water actually keeps the smoker temperature too low.

There was a great article in the huffington post regarding meat smoking, cooking times, etc. Here it is. If you check out the section on moisture evaporation and temperature, you'll see why I'm always a little leery on water pans....

I use a 21" Webber Smokey Mountain smoker. I can easily fit 12+ racks of ribs on the smoker, using rib racks so they don't lay flat. I've done 2 pork butts and 6 racks at once without trouble as well, and I'd say depending on the size you could most likely fit 3 butts per shelf (2 shelves).

Since the shelves are stacked, doing a brisket limits your space since you put a foil pan on the bottom shelf to catch the juice for slicing time.

There are accessories available like a pizza stone that can make for some fun meals (I love smoked pizza). I've also got a silicone insulating cover (similar to the oven mitts) that lets me smoke all winter long, and I'm in the same climate area as you.

It is a charcoal and wood smoker, so there isn't the convenience and temperature control of gas or electric. I use Royal Oak lump charcoal and typically will get bags of wood chunks (not chips). If you're looking for more of a "set it and (almost) forget it" style of smoking, definitely go with a gas or electric model.

Of course, if you're interested in getting a really nice offset smoker...Meadow Creek in Lancaster PA makes some great smokers. Amish built, of course! They've got an auction and open house/BBQ on April 14th weekend. It's a nice trip to check out their smokers and eat some great free food (whole hog, pulled pork, chicken, you name it). And right across the street is the HUGE place they build the sheds at!

<EDIT>
Forgot to mention, you also need the CyberQ for your smoker! Lets you log your temperate and whatnot and monitor your smoker from any computer/smart phone. It also makes temperature control and tending the smoker much easier.

And another hugely popular model of wood/charcoal smoker is the "big green egg" ceramic smoker. Even though I've never personally used one, I've talked to quite a few people who love them to death. They do make accessories that make moving it much easier, but it's one heavy beast.

Downloaded the app and tried to log in but got "account not part of the beta" along with a note at the bottom of the screen saying "Thank you for your interest in the steam mobile beta. We have made a note of your account and will be sending out more invites shortly".

Would be sweet to be able to check out the sales more easily.

I'm just north of Blue, and that same night it was 9 degrees here. I can usually keep my house in mid to low 60's with just the woodstove in the basement, but it was so cold that night that my furnace was kicking on just to keep the house at 58. Hope we don't see too many more of those this winter.

I'd love another tax deduction for energy efficiency improvements. Help the environment, economy, and reduce the dependence on foreign oil. Seems like a win-win-win to me. But I suppose closing your door helps too.... :-P
