    Thanks Softy for posting this.  I'll link it to people on teamspeak also.  Sounds like fun!

  5. Can the humble tree be used as a WMD?

    Our team of crack log engineers will get right on this. 
  6. A different look at movies

    I love movies, well not horror movies, but outside of that, almost anything.  I realized watching this video that I haven't really thought about how planned out and subtle the nuts and bolts of some movies are.  This guy gives a great explanation of what is going on in a scene in Silence of the Lambs   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5V-k-p4wzxg
  7. A humble hello from Reno

    Welcome, Reno.  This is a pretty good group of people, you'll enjoy ADK!  I also like the 'side quests' parts of games, so come logging with us in BF4 sometime!  :)
  8. The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug

    I'm going to be the curmudgeon for a moment here.  I just couldn't enjoy the Hobbit movies at all.  This is one of my favorite books and it just threw me out of any enjoyment of it when I saw how far from the book they strayed.  Radagast riding a forest sleigh?  Really?  He was a one line mention in the book and they should have left it that way.  I won't be watching this at all.    I also totally agree with Tully on the different releases they're doing.    ./Kicks Peter Jackson in the shin
  9. If you've always thought you couldn't make homemade bread, or needed a bread machine, I want to share with you how to make No-Knead Bread.  It is super simple, has great flavor and takes almost no time.  Give it a shot!    This is the first recipe I used from Jim Lahey and written about in the NY Times.     Time: About 1½ hours plus 14 to 20 hours’ rising 3 cups all-purpose or bread flour, more for dusting ¼ teaspoon instant yeast 1¼ teaspoons salt Cornmeal or wheat bran as needed 1. In a large bowl combine flour, yeast and salt. Add 1 5/8 cups water, and stir until blended; dough will be shaggy and sticky. Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Let dough rest at least 12 hours, preferably about 18, at warm room temperature, about 70 degrees. 2. Dough is ready when its surface is dotted with bubbles. Lightly flour a work surface and place dough on it; sprinkle it with a little more flour and fold it over on itself once or twice. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest about 15 minutes. 3. Using just enough flour to keep dough from sticking to work surface or to your fingers, gently and quickly shape dough into a ball. Generously coat a cotton towel (not terry cloth) with flour, wheat bran or cornmeal; put dough seam side down on towel and dust with more flour, bran or cornmeal. Cover with another cotton towel and let rise for about 2 hours. When it is ready, dough will be more than double in size and will not readily spring back when poked with a finger. 4. At least a half-hour before dough is ready, heat oven to 450 degrees. Put a 6- to 8-quart heavy covered pot (cast iron, enamel, Pyrex or ceramic) in oven as it heats. When dough is ready, carefully remove pot from oven. Slide your hand under towel and turn dough over into pot, seam side up; it may look like a mess, but that is O.K. Shake pan once or twice if dough is unevenly distributed; it will straighten out as it bakes. Cover with lid and bake 30 minutes, then remove lid and bake another 15 to 30 minutes, until loaf is beautifully browned. Cool on a rack. Yield: One 1½-pound loaf.   Some reasons this is so great: It really takes maybe 15 min all told of actual effort Bakeries inject steam to get that nice crust on their loaves.  The pre-heated dutch oven and dough recreate that effect. The low amount of yeast and long rise time give the bread great flavor
  10. Fall means comfort food!

    I made some homemade mac and cheese the other night.  It was pretty good and I thought I'd share the recipe I used - From SmittenKitchen       8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, plus more for casserole 6 slices white bread, crusts removed, torn into 1/4- to l/2-inch pieces 5 1/2 cups milk 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons coarse salt, plus more for water 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 4 1/2 cups (about 18 ounces) grated sharp white cheddar cheese 2 cups (about 8 ounces) grated Gruyère or 1 1/4 cups (about 5 ounces) grated Pecorino Romano cheese 1 pound elbow macaroni     1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Butter a 3-quart casserole dish; set aside. Place the bread in a medium bowl. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Pour the melted butter into the bowl with the bread, and toss. Set the breadcrumbs aside. 2. Warm the milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Melt the remaining 6 tablespoons butter in a high-sided skillet over medium heat. When the butter bubbles, add the flour. Cook, stirring, 1 minute. 3. While whisking, slowly pour in the hot milk a little at a time to keep mixture smooth. Continue cooking, whisking constantly, until the mixture bubbles and becomes thick, 8 to 12 minutes. 4. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in salt, nutmeg, black pepper, cayenne pepper, 3 cups cheddar cheese, and 1 1/2 cups Gruyère (or 1 cup Pecorino Romano); set the cheese sauce aside. 5. Cover a large pot of salted water, and bring to a boil. Cook the macaroni until the outside of pasta is cooked and the inside is underdone, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the macaroni to a colander, rinse under cold running water, and drain well. Stir the macaroni into the reserved cheese sauce. 6. Pour the mixture into the prepared dish. Sprinkle the remaining 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup Gruyère (or 1/4 cup Pecorino Romano), and the breadcrumbs over the top. Bake until golden brown, about 30 minutes (though we needed a bit more time to get it brown, but your oven may vary). Transfer the dish to a wire rack for 5 minutes; serve.
  11. I need books!

    Like you, I also like fantasy/sci fi books, so hopefully, some of these will be to your liking:   1. Terry Pratchett - Pretty much anything he's written is wonderful in my opinion - Especially books with Tiffany Aching, Sam Vimes, or Moist Von Lipwig and last but certainly not least, Rincewind.  There are too many to list but this is a good page to get a start   2. Garth Nix - The Abhorsen series is fantastic, great world building and wonderful characters. He also has another series The Keys to the Kingdom that is very good. Sabriel Lirael Abhorsen 3. Neil Gaiman - I find myself re-reading just because I'll come across a passage that is so wonderfully written I have to go over it again. Stardust American Gods Anansi Boys The Graveyard Book 4. Robin Hobb - Liveship Traders Trilogy Rain Wilds Chronicles The Farseer Trilogy The Tawny Man Trilogy 5. Jacqueline Carey - Terre D'Ange - these are historical fantasy, but they're a good read Kushiel's Dart Kushiel's Chosen Kushiel's Avatar 6. William Gibson - Mona Lisa Overdrive Neuromancer 7. Phillip Pullman - His Dark Materials The Golden Compass The Subtle Knife The Amber Spyglass   That is probably way more info than you wanted... I love books!
  12. @[member='VMak'] -  you leave my darn tags alone!  Get your own unicorn! @[member='M6Tully1'] - back at you Tully, it is always nice to have more cool people to hang out with @[member='Vhalroth'] - I name them in order like this: SoonToBeDeadAnt1, SoonToBeDeadAnt2, etc.  Then I have a little funeral for them later.
  13. In-N-Out

    Honestly, although In-N-Out is great, I just don't think it stands above 5 Guys or Burger Lounge or Smash Burger, or my personal SD favorite, Hodads in Ocean Beach.
  14. Can the humble tree be used as a WMD?

    If only you could stack them up like a teepee shape and it would be like log fireworks.  Log missiles are good though! 
  15. BF4 Feedback & Suggestions

    Hello,   I've talked to some people in chat about this, but I'd love to see you guys implement the Teamspeak 3 Sync plugin on the bf4 servers:  It creates temporary team chats ex., a US and CN chat for Conquest, moves players in their chat while the game is moving and then puts everyone back into the main chat at the end of the game.   It is very nice for team communication without giving away your intentions.   Thanks!
