It's called "Visual Studio Community 2013" and the .ISO is here:
They say it's the full Professional edition and is unrestricted for individual developers and teams of 5. This is big.
| Food and Drink Board|| Shoppers Value Foods - Everything is +10% - Spock's Eyebrow on 11/14/14 at 11:40 am|
Saw the ad for their grand opening in the Advocate yesterday. Prices looked good, and I figured that was a one-time thing to get people in, but then I saw the statement that they add 10% at the register to everything for profit and overhead. :rotflmao: This is the stupidest gimmick I've ever heard o...

Slowly but faster than expected. Maybe by 2016 I will be able to get a flat one to replace my ST60.

Saw link with this name in the Blue Lagoon thread and went "Awwww" when it brought me to that movie's IMDB trivia page. :lol:
Body Double was a great 80s movie. Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Melanie Griffith's epic list that taught me a few terms and concepts, not to mention her
"routine", house t...

| Movie/TV Board|| Bryan Cranston on Charlie Rose - Spock's Eyebrow on 6/12/14 at 2:52 pm|
He's playing LBJ on stage, and I saw him on Charlie Rose a little while back. They played a recording of LBJ talking with his tailor I had never heard before. It's not long, and I'd listen from the beginning as the hilarity enters out of nowhere.
| Food and Drink Board|| Things you expected to buy at Costco but they don't carry - Spock's Eyebrow on 6/5/14 at 2:29 am|
Coffee filters. Googling indicates it wasn't just my imagination. Costco has a whole fricking aisle of coffee but nary a filter in the whole damn store.
Plain old Heinz ketchup. They have organic Heinz in two-packs and picnic packs with mustard and relish. Nope. Nope. Nope. Where's my damn 3-pack ...

After the great New York Style Garlic Bagel Crisps shortage of early 2014, I had to do some branching out. I consider the following excellent, and I love to mix them together in a Tupperware container for several days of snacking.
| Food and Drink Board|| Best pot roast plate? - Spock's Eyebrow on 5/2/14 at 11:43 pm|
We had George's the other Tuesday and thought it was pretty damn good. It was more than I could eat at one sitting. Two plates ended up three full meals, and it was great heated in the microwave two days later. Not bad for under $20 total.

WTF is this guy? His career has inflated like the universe at its inception. He's had recent major roles in:
1. Sons of Anarchy (cut short, alas)
3. Law & Order SVU
I think he's great all around, but his SVU role is a standout IMO.
