The above is a very important point to make.
While you can make spicy things with the help of Ackis, you cannot mine spice like you do on Arrakis. This can be very confusing to nerds of the tenth power like myself, but hopefully today's Queue has cleared this all up.
And if you don't get the above picture, I'm sure someone will tell you about it in the comments relatively early on.
I'm kind of a profession perfectionist, and I'm looking for a mod that will look at all my current professions and tell me which recipes I'm missing. This would be particularly useful for cooking, but I'd like to fill in my missing blacksmithing patterns as well. Does anyone know if a mod like this exists?
The mod you want is called Ackis (Curse link). It will display everything for you. The beta version of it is updated often enough, and I've loaded that up if the release version is missing something.
I think you guys should have Cutaia sit in on the [podcast] chat sometime. Or Drakkenfyre? Grab a regular commenter who usually has good (or controversial) viewpoints, and haul them in to mix things up.
That's a good idea, and one that we've thrown around before. I'm not too sure that it'll happen in the near future, though.
One thing that we do encourage everyone to do is submit Breakfast Topics to us through our Seed program. We take a serious look at every article that's submitted, although it's not hard for us to say, "Oh hey, look, Cutaia wrote this, and he's bringing some of his awesome comments to us in article form."
What are the various options out there for capturing gameplay video?
There are a ton of options these days. You mentioned Fraps in the comment you left, and that's pretty much the de facto standard. I'd be hard-pressed to find something better than that. There is, however, built-in video recording on the Mac version of WoW, and that works okay -- not great, but okay.
