@Isomorphisms: Actually, what you're looking for there is not 3 pages, but one pages that compares all 3 restaurants, like a reliable review site.

@sbrandwoo: Exactly the opposite. The focus needs to go to the people who come to buy things, not the people who come to window shop. Big buy buttons and good reviews, not the chance to use up bandwidth flicking around results.

I had a hour-long meeting that overran by over half an hour. Seemed like a failure to me until I checked the action items, and realised we'd covered everything we needed to, and that everyone was now aware of flaws and broken sections that they previously hadn't been. The true curse is the "Regularly Scheduled" "Team" meeting. It's a way of updating the managers and provides *NOTHING* for anyone not involved in the project.

In @GamerPolitic's pitiful, PITIFUL defence, they actually just used the "@wilw" from an existing re-tweet. I don't believe it was actually meant to be directed at Wil. Which makes them seem even more incompetent, but y'know.

I totally got why you were angry. I mean, almost everything Game Politics said was the wrong thing to say. And God Knows I've got 100 tweet arguments that put that lil' spat to SHAME. On the other hand, ".@GamePolitics If you don't know what I've advocated - and continue to advocate - for gamers, you have no business claiming to represent us.", is basically "Hi, I'm Wil Wheaton and when it comes to this I'm kind of a big deal." NOTHING wrong with you saying that, as I believe the statement happens to be true. But you calming down, and apologising is an incredibly classy act. So, score one for having "trusted friends" (I'm imagining Morgan Freeman imparting sage wisdom as you mop a floor).

For some reason, on my Nokia 5800 phone's podcatcher, the file never stops downloading. It reaches 298% and then gives up. Anyone else getting this?

[Omin and Jim are attempting to get Binwin to join them in hunting down Leer Ambershard] Omin: "Binwin, you haven't had an ale or a fight in 6 weeks. I can't stand seeing you like this. Please, just have a bottle of warm British lager and get slapped by the barmaid! Something!" Binwin: "NO! I led a comrade to die! I will never drink again!" Jim: "Well, Omin led him there, you just sort of... pushed him." [looks proud that he's helping, then shrinks at Omin's glare] Omin: "He knew the risks, Binwin. If aught remained of his body, I would devote myself to restoring him. But at it is, all we can do is seek vengeance. And we shall have it, with or without you." [Binwin looks up] Binwin: "With." [They share a look denoting determined vengeance, although Jim may just be sleepy] Jim: "I propose a toast, gentlemen. To Aeofel Elhromanë." [Revenant Aeofel walks in] Revenant Aeofel: "I Have Returned, garbed in Vengeance and Wrath" All: "AL!"

Can't see it, wrong nation. Which is a shame, but not as big of a shame as what happened to Aeofel. Check out Wil's D&D podcast for the full horror of what happens when you forget to munchkin.
