Initially, I wanted to buy Professor Layton and Curious Village, the first game in the series, but it was listed at only a dollar below regular price. Instead, I ordered Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box at $21.74. An awesome price for a game that came out 3 months ago.
For 3 weeks, in order detail, the game was listed as backordered. On 12/8/09 I decided to ask customer service when they expect to get the game back in stock again. Next day I received an email that my ordered was canceled because the game has been "discontinued by the manufacturer". A game that came out 3 months ago, has received an 8.5 from IGN and has sold over 1.26 million units is discontinued?! Really?!
I contacted Nintendo, the manufacturer. I received a reply within 4 hours. Was pleasantly surprised at the fast reply, DeepDiscount took a lot longer, and that the reply was not some canned response from India but was from America and actually addressed my question. The reply was that the game just came out and is not discontinued. I emailed Nintendo's response to DeepDiscount and have so far didn't even receive an apology.
What I'm guessing happened is that the game was listed at the wrong price and instead of honoring the price, DeepDiscount took the game off their site and told everyone who purchased it that it was discontinued. Since DeepDiscount is ignoring me, I filed a complaint with BBB of Chicago.

I like stuffing and this year I used microwavable Mexican rice, which I partially cooked, mixed with duck sauce and bread. Since I couldn't stuff the turkey, I stuffed the skin, which I pulled almost off, and the rest of the stuffing I put underneath. I baked the turkey at 325 degrees, 30 minutes uncovered, 3.5 hours covered with an aluminum tent, basting every half an hour. The stuffing kept the meat from overcooking and losing moisture while keeping the skin separated and stretched, which gave it a nice brown color and made it thin and quite tasty.
I recommend always mixing the duck sauce into the stuffing. As for the turkey itself, smear the duck sauce inside and out, including under the skin. Add some water to pan to use for basting. Apples, quartered and placed around the turkey are also a good addition.

Saturday night we watched Punisher: War Zone and we both loved it! The movie had a nice balance of drama, action and comedy. The cast was pretty well picked too. Punisher: War Zone had lots of shooting and blood and no liberal propaganda. The movie was at times too cartoonish, but it didn't take away from the enjoyment.
Before watching the movie, I highly recommend watching the specials, specifically, "Creating the Look of the Film" The crew talk about having scenes contain no more than three primary colors in order to make the movie look more like the comic book. The colors are used to both project the emotion of the scene and to hint at what will happen. This use of colors gives this movie a sort of an artistic angle and makes it more unique.
While watching the specials, I was very surprised that the director was female. Yes, I know, it's sexist of me to say that, but women don't usually direct these kind of movies or make sure that it's full of blood, bullets and decapitations. I looked up the director, Lexi Alexander, on imdb and everything immediately made sense. She's a former World Karate and Kickboxing Champion. But, not only is she good at kicking ass, she is, in my opinion, a very good director as well. Not only that, but she's also a writer and a producer and this is only her fourth movie. I would love to see what Lexi would do with something the size of a James Bond movie.

I'm a member of frumsex group on yahoo. Why? It was sorta funny and entertaining in the beginning, that is before I found calmkallahs. Though even that got boring after some time. Why am I still a member? Idiots contacting me and asking asl with my reply being my blog link, "you wanna know, go look" :-D
Several days ago I was contacted by firstname.lastname@example.org with same question. He got the same response. He also said he had a proposition for me but never said what it was.
Then he contacted me again today and here's the chat log:

Mountain Fruit's at it again but what else is new. Chicken sauce is supposedely on sale for $1.99. Last week, either Wednesday or Thursday, it rang up as $2.99 and, this being Mountain Fruit, the checkout girl obviously started arguing with me that it's not on sale. After verifying herself that, guess what, it actually is on sale, she corrected it to $1.99.
Today, the last day of sale, the same bottle again rang up as $2.99 and again the checkout girl, different one this time, started arguing with me that it's not on sale. After correcting the price, she managed to forget to remove one of the $2.99 entries and had to pay me $2.99 cash on my credit card purchase. So at least I managed to cost the store a few pennies, makes me happy.
If you've bough chicken sauce in Mountain Fruit between last Wednesday and today, you've been overcharged $1/bottle.

Sortable version of above
Take pictures of all of your friends' farms even if they're not your neighbors yet.
- Leave one type of each gift your receive in the giftbox, this includes gifts received for earning ribbons. To get a gifted blue ribbon, you need 21 unique gifts so make this a priority before going for any other ribbons.
- Do not buy trees or animals, ask your friends to send them to you.
- Plant unprofitable seeds only once.
- Keep an eye on your friends achievements, filter news by farmville, and get bonuses from their achievements.
- Trade off for high profit margin of raspberries is no experience while planting. However, when you figure in 1xp for plowing, rapberries are the best crop until at least level 12.
- If you find it annoying to have your avatar running around the whole farm when you're harvesting/plowing/planting, trap him inside 4 hay bales.
- You can buy xp by buying buildings and decorations. While the exchange rate on most items is 100:1, plus sell back value, the exchange rate for yellow Hay Bales is 20:1, plus 5 for sell back, making it 19:1. Not counting opening menu and selecting Hay Bales, this way you get 2.5xp per click
- Buying xp option 2. This would require more space and spare gas tanks but will cost 10 coins per xp. Use tractor to plow 4 fields, use seeder to seed the 4 fields with Soybeans, delete the fields. Not counting opening menu and selecting Soybenas, you get 2xp per click.
- Be helpful. Helping your neighbors earns you 5xp and 20 coins. Click on your neighbors on the bottom menu and select "Visit/Help". After you help a certain number of people, you will only earn 1xp and 5 coins. If you have less neighbors than the limit, click on My Neighbors tab and from there, instead of clicking on the go to neighbor's farm link at the top, scroll down to Pending Request neighbors and do them top to bottom on one day and bottom to top next day. If you have enough confirmed neighbors, start from one end on one day and from the other end next day.
- You can now fertilize your neighbors' crops when you visit them. This works only for those farms where there is something in the process of growing. If nothing is planted or the farm is dead, there's nothing to fertilize. Fertilizing increases possible experience earned from visiting neighbors from 0 to 5 to 0 to 10. Now, even if you've reached your quota for helping, you can still earn an additional 5xp for fertilizing. There doesn't seem to be a quota for fertilizing.
- Bird Baths and Hay Rolls sell for 100 coins, Horses, for 105. After collecting one of each animal and tree, request from your neighbors Olive trees and those three. Do same yourself too. Personally, I sell everything except for Olive, Date and Pomegranate trees and a few of each seasonal items. I'm also keeping Cherries and Maples, but that's only until I get a blue ribbon.
- Knock on Wood - Use Cherries and Maples.
- Zoologist - One Chicken Coup and several Dairy farms. Remember, Brown Cows and Pink Cows bring a lot more money.
- Architect - This can be completed easily using Rest Tents when you have enough money. In the beginning, do not buy these as you will receive several building for free when you earn other ribbons.
- Pack Rat - Don't buy mailboxes, you'll get them free. Easiest way to get this ribbon, fence in your farm.
- Animal Shelter - Ask those of your neighbors that you know personally to message or I/M you when they find an animal.
- Tree Hugger - Do not buy trees, with the exception of seasonal ones. Ask your neighbors to gift them to you.
- Noah's Ark - Do not buy animals either. Again, with the exception of seasonal ones. Adopt and ask your neighbors.
- Not Spoiled, Gifted! - Leave one of each gift in the gift box until you get a blue ribbon. This shouldn't take too long. Besides receiving gifts from neighbors, you'll also get gifts from ribbons.
- Flower Power and Pretty Garden - Grow flowers around the middle of your farm where your avatar appears. This will insure your visitors will fertilize the flowers first. You can use the flowers in the Garden Shed to earn at least one ribbon, which will also give you another bouquet.
- White Eggs - White Chickens, Brown Chickens, Pink Flamingoes, Garden Gnomes
- Brown Eggs - Brown Chickens, Black Chickens, Zen Garden, 1 Fuel Refill
- Black Eggs - Black Chickens, Golden Chickens, Fire Pit, 15 Fuel Refills
- Golden Eggs - Golden Chickens, Donkey, Animal Float, Carousel, 30 Fuel Refills

I have been tagged by The Jewish Side in the “Seven things I love” meme.
The way it works is simple: List the seven things you love and tag seven other bloggers.
Not being one to take things seriously, here are my 7:
- I love beer.
- I love animals. I love looking at them, petting them, feeding them, and then eating them.
- I love babies, as long as they're not ugly babies and they are laughing and/or smiling.
- I love anime and tentacles. While this is not self explanatory for everyone, those who don't know what I'm talking about, I suggest not googling it for your own sanity.
- I love making fun of stupid people. For same reason I love comedians who make fun of stupid people.
- I love not wearing clothes and that is why I love my Shabbat Robe, aka Yukata aka Kimono. If G-d would've wanted us to wear clothes, he'd gives us fur.
- I love music, with the exception of the horrible American chareidi music that kills your braincells and turns you into a slobbering braindead zombie who follows any kind of bs ban the Elders of Zion make up out of boredom.

Solution, at least worked so far, is to boot into ubuntu, rename both files to .bak, not sure if qxwtawj is a virus or not and can't find anything on google so remained it instead of deleting. Booted into windows, no alerts from kaspersky and xaaykvjr has not reappeared.
In the registry, qxwtawj appears under winlogon in uiphazue and another location. I wasn't able to delete either entry even using regassassin and regseeker. Finally got rid of the winlogon entry by running ComboFix. You can get it here, here, or here.

A year ago, I read an article about Hollywood bitching and moaning about how piracy is destroying movie theaters and how because of piracy and internet people are not going to the movies anymore. While this was laughable then, now, it's absolutely hilarious.
Two weeks ago when we went to see night at the museum, we were charged a very "reasonable" price of $12.50 per ticket. For two people, that's $25. If you don't have a car, add another $8 for transportation which, starting this Sunday, is now $9. If you want popcorn, add at least $4.50. Your trip to the movies is now costing you at least $38.50.
Now, if you go to see the movie in it's first week, you'll see it on a nice big screen. If you go to see it in its third week, the screen is now half the size while the ticket price is surprisingly same.
What do you get for your $38.50? Well, the current movies are made up of mostly sequels, remakes and cliches, in most cases, bad ones. So, after spending time and money and you don't even enjoy the experience.
What is really killing movie theaters? The ever rising ticket prices which are not even scaled to the size of the screen. The 1000%+ markup for food. The lack of talented writers, enough with the remakes already! Not to mention the current trend of replacing plot, story and acting with special effects.
Going to a movie is now costing the price of one, if not two, brand new DVDs. Now, considering how cheap and convenient Netflix is, instead of buying the DVDs, you can save up the money for a big screen TV or even a projector. And don't forget, the bonus of watching movies at home is the pause button for bathroom breaks and the only people screaming at the screen are your idiot friends.
How much are you paying for movies? Two people, driving to the theater and not buying any food, once in two weeks, are spending $650 per year. Add public transportation, and/or food, and/or more frequent visits and you're looking at over $1,000 year. Cost of an HD projector? 720p start at around $600, plus a $100 for a good screen. 42" LCD, 720p, about same price.

American Fusion is about Yvonne, a middle aged, divorced Chinese woman who works for a newspaper, meeting Jose, a Mexican dentist. The movie revolves around Yvonne's crazy family. The mean and racist mother. The wannabe gangsta son. The nephew with an interesting job. The ex-con, born again, brother and his wife who are trying to have a baby. The obsessive and controlling sister.
One of the most entertaining scenes is when Yvonne meets Jose's family. While the families are very similar in their situations, the way they interact within and outside is completely different.
This movie has everything, romance, humor, irony and even poetic justice. What this movie also has is Pat Morita in a very comedic, though short, role.
One of the aspects of this movie that I particularly enjoyed is how it's different from the average American romantic comedy. Nowadays, almost every romantic comedy is about late 20s, early 30s, getting together. American Fusion takes two middle aged people, one of whom is divorced and with a kid, and makes it work. Yes, you can have a very funny romantic comedy without resorting to several layers of makeup and supermodels.

Hot chocolate, milk soup, tilapia in cheddar, mac n' cheese, greek salad, cheese blintzes, ravioli, cheese cake and ice cream.
Cheeses eaten with white wine:
Blue, brie, le marcaire, smoked cheddar, and cranberry with port wine cheese.
Several years ago, I bought a few good cheese for Shavuot and ate them with wine with my friend. After all the wine and cheese, we were wasted like never before. We barely crawled to shul and drinking a cup of coffee where one third of the cup was coffee and the rest water didn't help.
Having the above incident in mind, I warned my friends, different ones, who came over not to eat too much of the weird cheeses. Well, the cheeses tasted too good and my warning went unheeded. After coming to shul, I offered my friend who ate by me some x-mas tea, mint with white tea, but he shrugged it off.
For the afternoon meal, we went to the above mentioned friends. Turns out that the dude felt so nasty afterwards that he thought he may need to go to the hospital. At the meal, he refused to eat anything dairy and claimed to swear off cheese until at least next Shavuot. I, of course, being the good friend that I am, made sure to make fun of him throughout the meal.
Let this be a warning to everyone else. If you don't usually eat aged or imported fine cheeses, don't spend Shavuot night stuffing yourself with assorted cheese and milk products. You will feel like crap and you will wish to have never laid eyes on said cheese in the first place.
This has been a public service announcement.

We got lucky with the eating arrangements. Both last time and this time, we ended up eating by an OTD family. They had meat. Most people in New Square eat only chicken and only with a New Square hashgocha. There are, however, a few "rebels" who have meat. Some, even have whisky. We also got lucky, unlike some of the other people on the shabbaton, to have a host who both, speaks English and who doesn't have men and women sitting at separate tables.
We slept and ate by separate families but both houses were near each other and also within two minutes from shul. Finished dinner at my usual 1AM, went to the tisch, though didn't stay till the end and left at 2AM. Shacharis was at a very shabbas nap friendly time of 11AM. Food was great, though the meat jello, however you call it, I wouldn't touch even if the Rebbe himself gave it to me.
The not enjoyable part was centered around the half-assed organizational skills of the shul. When we came to the family we were sleeping by, we found out that nobody bothered to warn them that we have a 4 month old infant who needs a crib and not a child bed. One of my friends, by their hosts, got a mattress to put on the floor for his two and a half year old daughter.
The most fun, however, was had when we came to the Rebbe for a brocha. There were other people who were let in first because we were a big group so by the time we got into the room it was 2AM. All the times before, the preggies and families with infants and little kids got the brocha first so they could leave. This time, a few people from our shul showed just how noble they are. There was one family with a toddler and a pregnant wife, two families with toddlers, a couple more with little kids. Who pushed through, ignoring the tired toddlers and babies who were either falling asleep or asleep in their parents' arms? One of the shul's board members and his wife! Now, not only were they there by themselves, but they weren't even leaving, they were staying until Sunday! Then went the gabbai with the preggers wife and toddler, then two other families, and finally us. The family who was supposed to go next were our friends who were driving us. Who shoved in front instead, two bochurim, both of whom knew with who we came and who could could very well see me standing with NY in my arms and my mother with Shlomik. Besides us, there were also other families with kids still waiting, but, apparently the force of the Rebbe's brocha wanes with each consecutive one and it was absolutely imperative that they get in in front.
While we had fun, the enjoyment was marred by these four people's display of selfishness and disregard for others.
Thursday, May 7, 2009
For soup, there was a choice of split pea soup, taken by wife, chicken noodle, taken by Shlomik, matzha ball, meh, and turkey gumbo, taken by moi. The turkey gumbo was awesome and will be my permanent choice for any future visits.
For drink, there was free water and a choice of Coke, Diet Coke and Sprite. In retrospect, I should have asked for a pitcher of juice or tea. We settled for Coke.
The buffet consisted of salad, sweet and sour chicken, beef with noodles, beef with broccoli, French fries, very nice eggrolls, fried rice, rice with mashrooms and some very strange menu choices. By strange, I mean kishka and cholent. What I would like to know is who, in their right mind, would go to a $20 buffet and get cholent and kishka, on Thursday, in a restaurant. Dude, wait a day and a half, or at least get it from the takeout next door. The weird thing, as you can see on the picture, is that both trays were almost empty. We tried everything on this side of the buffet and Shlomik acquiesced to have a couple french fries.
For dessert, we had some layered cake and cheese cake. Not sure if it was part of the deal, though we weren't charged for it. If it wasn't, don't leave stuff lying around where I could get to it, because I will eat it.
All in all, it was a pleasant experience and, while I wouldn't do it every week, once a month is definitely a possibility.
