I think I'm done with COD. Both Black Ops and MW3 were disappointing, well not disappointing, but I felt no need to play them more than once through and a few hours on the multi-player. I couldn't get enough of MW2.
I don't want more of the same, I will look for something new. There are plenty of other games out there to choose from.
I'm skipping it. Looking at the concept and the commercials, I feel like COD has jumped the shark. In the same way that battlefield did in the 2042 version but now they are trying to get back to their roots (I enjoy BF3 and play with a good bunch of guys, many were military at one point).
That said, I still enjoy Rainbow Six: Raven Shield for the slow, methodical, tactical and teambased play that requires planning instead of running like an idiot.
The Radio Times website covers UK TV, and tonight there is a Michel Roux Jnr program on Escoffier - I noticed it has a preview clip.
The text that came along with the clip tickled my funny bone, anyway: These clips are supplied by trusted broadcasters and distributors and included on Radio Times automatically using technical magic. So in case you wondered, Radio Times is not responsible for the clip’s contents.
Ah...Technical Magic. I must start recommending it in QA.
If you get an email telling you that you can catch Swine Flu from tinned pork then just delete it. It's Spam.
Internal medicine doctors from Sinai Hospital-Johns Hopkins Program turned to a fecal microbiota transplantation, a procedure in which a stool is taken from a healthy person and transplanted into the colon of the infected person.
This is NOT how I imagined modern medicine would be like in the 21st century when I grew up.
I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.
If it makes you feel any less gross, identifying which gut microbes actually need replaced to repair the microbiome and culturing them in the lab is a subject of active research.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

Anybody else having an issue with slow downs with VS2012? Occasionally moving my cursor or highlighting some text the program will slow to a hault for several seconds, and the longer I leave VS Open the worse it gets, until I retart the program.
I'm still spending more than half my time in VS2010 because it's feals fast and responsive, compared to VS2012.
Without the theme editor for 2012 to make it a little more bearable (the defaults are horrable)I don't think I would try to use 2012 at all.
