I recently tried going to an 8+ gallon fermenter for my 5-gallon batches, and I'm never going back. Haven't needed a blow-off hose yet using the larger primary, even with highly oxygenated wort and very active yeast. The krausen never quite hits the top. Much easier, in my opinion! :-)

Your Radio Free Burrito site is currently having some troubles. I was able to access it via Google's cache though, and the link to the MP3 itself (http://wilwheaton.typepad.com/files/033-rfb.mp3) still seems to work.

LOL, there was actually a few seconds of video with Yuri where he wasn't eating something!! :-D

I always end up missing all the cons for various reasons, even PAX, and that one is only a few hours away by train or car. *sigh*... Long live the d12! It just has such a pleasing shape. The perfect balance between pointy and roundy. :-P

Another excellent episode! I've been lucky enough so far that at least one in my group of extended nerd friends has the games that have been featured so far, so I haven't put myself in the poor house buying all these games. Double kudos to Oliver White for the quadruple facepalm. That is hilarious!

Another excellent episode! I'll second what others have said, you've definitely improved in the host role. The show is just as good, or better, when you're more relaxed and not trying to be "on", and seem to be more focused on enjoying the games and awesome, nerd-gasm inducing company. This and Ms. Day's Flog have become two of my all-time favorite web-based shows.

I just gave making my own a shot. It worked great. :-) Steps I followed: 1) Create a QR code to whatever you want, with 30% error correction enabled. Lots of online places, I just Googled "qr generator error correction" and picked one. 2) Cut out the image you want to overlay, convert to black and white and then stylize/simplify it. I used Photoshop's "Sketch\Stamp" filter, and bumped up the contrast. 3) Paste your stylized image over your QR code, shrink it down so it's covering less than 30% of the image. Make sure there's a little white space around it, and don't cover the corner boxes. Alternatively, just Google: add image to qr code

I'd totally knee-cap someone for Wil Wheaton, just sayin'... Can you at least close the payment method and get a refund on those items in the meantime? Most credit card companies are pretty good about fraud, not so sure about other payment methods through the Kindle.

I'm curious how that actually works? DST doesn't change how many hours of daylight there actually are in a day (that'd be a neat trick!), it just offsets when it happens by 1-hour. How does that really help?

Queue some card-carrying PETA folks harassing you about the cat comment... Sounds like an interesting film, just added to my ever-growing Netflix queue, thanks!

I might actually see a movie in the theater's again, if it came with this little treat. <pedant>Also, volume increase and decrease is merely a side effect of a constant sound at variable distance... The Doppler effect is the increase and subsequent decrease in pitch (or sound frequency, if you insist), not volume! :-P </pedant>

Well, port ("home", Earth!) and starboard (off to the stars) actually makes a hell of a lot more sense on the ISS than it does on water faring craft, in my opinion!!

Can't say it much better than any of the other comments so far... We're here because we like you and your work. Your kindness shows through in your writing. Thank you for taking a stand against abuse! If the opportunity ever arose, I'd take a punch for you from one of the other 2%. ;-)
