1. Am I still on the list of top spam reporters?

2. How was Smash able to post pictures without premium? Did he bribe one of you to do it for him?

What's the best bang for my buck on an upgrade from an NVidia 560 ti?

If your power supply and case can handle it, a second identical 560 TI in SLI mode will be the most cost effective horsepower improvement. The new 660 cards are still way up in price. A 580 GTX would be a 20-30% speed improvement over the 560, but the cost is going to be considerably higher, and its probably not worth it unless you can get one of the 3GB 580 GTX's for a reasonable price. The 680 GTX's are about 20% faster than the 580 GTX 3GB, but they do run considerably cooler overall. You can get a pair of 580 GTX 3GB's for the same cost of a 680 GTX though.

Half elf! (specifically in this case, half high elf, half green forest dragon, according to my cheesy backstory in my journal)

One of, though there is much more competition than there once was. Polderan is probably the top reporter this year.

They were posted as Smasharoo in the backend data. I suspect it was something to do with image uploading via the wiki portal or something along those lines, as that probably doesn't premium check. That or his account is just broken.

We have access to the following technology:

Kaolian's Cheesecake
Step 1
Crust:
Ingrediants:
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped cashews
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
5 tablespoons butter, melted

In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, chopped cashews, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and melted butter. Mix well and press into the bottom of a 10 inch springform pan. Bake in preheated oven for 6-7 minutes. (double recipie for adding a side wall if desired)

Step 2:
Cheesecake:
1 (16oz) pound ricotta cheese
1 ½ (24 oz) pounds cream cheese
1 cup white sugar
6 eggs
4 tabelspoons all-purpose flour
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 tsp Orange extract

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Cream together ricotta cheese, cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Mix in the eggs one at a time. Add flour one tablespoon at a time, mixing well. Stir in the sour cream and vanilla. Pour mixture into the 10-inch spring form pan with your crust mixture at the bottom.
3. Place cheesecake in the middle of the oven, making sure that it is not too close to the top heating element. Bake for 90 minutes. If the top of the cheesecake begins to brown, cover it with Aluminum foil.
4. After 90 minutes turn oven off, but leave the cake in the oven for another 60 minutes (do not open door. this allows the cake to cool without cracking. Step can be eliminated if you are short on time).
5. Cool on counter for 60 minutes and then refrigerate. Serve when thoroughly chilled.

Notes: Ricotta and cream cheese amounts can be swapped for a smoother cheesecake.

Blueberry Sauce:
1 part frozen blueberries to ½ part sugar. add 1/2 Tsp good cinimon Heat over medium low heat until sugar is dissolved and sauce is thickened. Add 1/4 cup corn starch to 1 cup cold water, stir, and add as a thickening agent if you like.

I don't think we'll starve.

A horse-sized duck. The bill on that thing would be so huge that I doubt it could even stay upright for long, so I could just tip the sucker over!

Kao, please tell us about the most annoying thing you've ever had to deal with as an admin (other than this question)

Also, any admins out there, what is your favourite flavor of ice cream?

Also: Pie? Or Cake?

Hmm. Thats a tough one. Theres always the repeat banned users (godraiden, etc) who for whatever reason I can't get banned on their ISP end, though these days we can deal with those quicker. The large scale DDOS spammers we had several years back were certianly up there. The occasional personal attack can get annoying, but are often an excuse to let yourself off the leash too, so they aren't all bad, and sometimes its just fun banning clueless spammers who can't figure out why their links keep changing to cannotlinkto. Probably the most annoying part of the job though is having to click all the links to intercept the bad ones. Not the viruses so much, my system is pretty much immune to those, but the various offensive images and whatnot people like to post. In my career as an Intel analyst, we often had to go look at pretty horrible things to try and gather intel on ongoing incidents. Things I have seen here are considerably worse. You really don't want to know what some of them were, and no forum admin on the planet gets paid enough to see some of those things. On a few rare occasions over the years, we have had to involve law enforcement.

recently, it's been Cake batter. that stuff is addictive. Strawberry is good too though.

Olorinus wrote:

Cakepie! its a cake with a pie baked inside, and it was invented, created and even theoretically patented in these very forums long before mainstream cake artists ever even attempted to make one!
