Out of the Blue

As spring approaches, I'm starting to make plans to up my game this year at the man stove. My grill has a side fire-box for smoking, but I don't think it's an ideal smoker at that, and obviously using it as a smoker prevents using it for grilling, so I'm looking at dedicated smokers (though the draw of a kamado-style ceramic grill is quite strong). The thing is there's such a variety of them out there to choose between, I think I should have started researching this before last spring for this one. I certainly am interested in hearing anyone's personal experiences on the topic.

Finally managed to win a Diablo III beta key and it's pretty fun and provided me with that signature feeling of 'just one more mob' followed by 'oh shit, it's 3am already'.

It's really fun to play and feels exactly like a Diablo game should. You hack and slash like a boss on your warrior, making skeletons and corpses fly in any given direction, the armor is amazingly detailed, and the music is a great throwback to the first title. The achievements are pretty nice addition as well; some you'll just happen upon such as collecting gold while others require you to participate in rare events.

There are some obvious bugs and issues, primarily the chat/lobby system feels like a forced after thought but hopefully those will become addressed in later beta builds.
