A true foodie knows Crepes are the only acceptable skillet breakfast bread.
I've recently made crepes, waffles, and blueberry pancakes. Each is delicious, so there's no need to limit yourself.

Crepes are certainly more versatile. I made a big stack and we had them for dinner twice (with ham, gruyère, and mornay sauce) and breakfast (also twice) as blueberry blintzes.

I still use my grandmother's waffle iron, which I inherited. It makes the absolute best super-crispy waffles. The cooking surface appears to be cast iron and it must be at least 70 years old. (It has a cloth-wrapped electrical cord.)

Unfortunately, running a dehumidifier eats electricity, especially in the summer, since it's basically an air-conditioner/heater combo.

If you have bare concrete or cinderblock walls, waterproofing paint is a better option. We had it applied to our basement walls before we moved into our current house ~7 years ago and it's been great. We still have a dehumidifier from our old house, but we haven't needed to use it in our basement anymore.

We used Drylok wall paint: http://www.drylok.com/

I am saddened by your loss. I've enjoyed your stories about Gunnar over the years. He was clearly a great pet and good friend.

I highly recommend QuakeSpasm, a version of Quake that runs well on modern machines, supporting high-resolution monitors, colored lighting, high quality music support, etc.

Hi Blue,

No need to resort to a breeder. My wife volunteers at a local no-kill animal shelter and she recommends using PetFinder.com. I've taken the liberty of looking up poodles near New York City and there are 108 waiting to be adopted.

You might want to try "after-bite" or a similar product on the sting. Another approach is to apply ice to the sting. If it's been a few hours, soak the area in very hot water (not scalding) for a few minutes. It will itch like a dickens while soaking, but should be much less itchy afterwards.

I'm a programmer and I can easily get an app to blue-screen via OLE function calls w/ invalid parameters, but I doubt that's your problem here. (OLE is unlikely to be used in a game.)

High resolutions tend to stress everything in your system, including the CPU, RAM, buses, etc.

Here are a few more things you might want to investigate:

Is it possible that your power supply is not up to the task? I've seen lots of weird system problems occur with flakey power supplies.

Is it possible that your CPU might be overheating, since the video card will be dumping extra heat into the case?

What about the motherboard chipset (North/South bridge chip(s) - are they overheating?

Try running with the case open while a big-ass fan blows onto the motherboard. If that fixes the problem, then you should upgrade 1 or more coolers / fans.
