Not the guy you responded to but I use and am a big fan of the same thing.

Doesn't that require a separate filter for each cup?

Yeah, but they're cheap and very convenient for preparation and clean-up.

And a tea kettle or some other 3rd party heating solution?

Yes, but once you know how long it takes for e.g. a microwave to safely get a certain amount of water to the optimal temperature for a single serving it takes a very short amount of time. I know my microwave at home takes 2 min to get 12 oz of cold water to the perfect brewing temp.

Also I know that the particular vessel I use to microwave water has nucleation points which allows the water to safely come to a roiling boil which keeps the water from superheating and exploding.

This right here. Single cup of whatever happens to be my favorite coffee of choice at the moment, brewed to my exact specifications (many data gathered after *extensive* testing), with minimal muss and minimal fuss. As much as I like other brewing methods (moka pot, French press, Turkish coffee, other "hipster" methods...) this single-cup drip method takes the cake for excellent taste and convenience.

The expansions enhance the gameplay to such a degree it's practically a new game. If you're enjoying vanilla Civ V then you're in for a real treat should you get the expansions, though you might want to wait until they have the (most likely forthcoming) "complete edition" upgrade which contains all the content rather than buying via the piecemeal approach.

The old page to purchase subscriptions and the FAQ which explains the subscription program.

I've never heard of such a thing, and I think I've read at least the subject of every story posted here since Oct 1998 when I met the /. guys at the Atlanta Linux Showcase.

You should take a remedial reading course if you missed this. It's been mentioned many, many times over the years. Or maybe get yourself checked for senility.
