I would like to share my latest cooking experiment:
Mushroom Wine Sauce
Take a pack of mushrooms and a tablespoon of minced garlic (or less if you aren't a garlic fan, or a vampire) and throw them in a sauce pan with some butter and lightly saute for maybe 30 seconds. You can add in pepper or herbs at this point. Pour a small can (12oz) of beef broth over them. refill that empty can with red wine (dry or sweet) and add to saucepan and throw on a pat of butter (optional). bring to a boil, then simmer on low until reduced by half (30 minute to 1 hour), or until you get bored, stirring occasionally. Taste. If it's a little sour to you (if you used a dry wine), add a spoonful of sugar to taste. If the sauce is a little thin for your tastes, dissolve a teaspoon of corn starch in water then add to the saucepan, stirring constantly. sauce will immediately thicken.
Serve the sauce over beef or chicken. It tastes particularly good on steaks or veal.
I feel so bad for everyone involved and even the perpetrator of the violence. It is clear that he is suffering from severe mental distress which really drives home the need for people to GET HELP.
Friends of friends of mine were injured in the attack. I hope that everyone involved with the shooting will get some mental health treatment.
I fervently wish that the media would show some decorum and respect for those involved, but...it's the media. I only hope that the right cause will be blamed MENTAL ILLNESS, not gaming.
It makes me ashamed to know that many people will use this tragedy, including presidential candidates and governmental bodies, to further their own agendas. Let us not forget that right now, people are SUFFERING. Let us show compassion for our fellow man and forget our political leanings for now.

I haven't been heavily affected by the nerf as many others have been. Frankly, AS was a bit overpowered, but there is no reason to get panties in a twist. Did Blizz go a smidge overboard? Perhaps, but they haven't rendered any classes unplayable. Just adjust and move on. Why don't we think of it this way: PvP is coming. Perhaps the AS was nerfed now to give people time to adjust and render classes more equal. Frankly, a WD stacking AS and doing 80K damage would kill my barbarian in 2 seconds flat because there is no way I'm going to equal that damage output.
I do disagree with the mf change. I feel that mf should be used with chests, just sayin.
your link has been cut short.
Here is it!

one of the best things you can do is troll the AH for cheap weapon upgrades. Constantly monitor your spec. You can on the fly, change your skills.
By the time you reach hell...make sure you have some good resistances, and definitely kite arcanes.

i would agree with the full length films. and damn, the wow stuff makes me wanna play again.
Here's my ALIVE AT ALL COSTS, Barbarian build. I don't use Rend because I wasn't have much success with it. However....
So, as a barbarian and victim of unlucky drops, by Nightmare, I had to create a build that kept me alive.
This build takes advantage of fury building as well as life gain. You'll notice that whirlWIN takes advantage of Blood Funnel. My Passive Skills enhance my abilities. I've taken advantage of ruthless which increases crit chance...thus the chance of life gain from crit. Inspiring Presence also has an inbuilt 1% life gained per second for a minute. It's been a fun build and keeps me alive through elites!

I absolutely love D3. Yeah, launch day kinda sucked, but Blizz managed to get it all under control and rather quickly. When you have a few million people all trying to log in at the SAME EXACT MOMENT, any server is bound to say "screw this crap!". I've been extremely satisfied with Diablo. Can't wait til Inferno and have some challenges!
(Also, I went to Whimsyshire last night. OMG! LOL!)
