Today's Bridge: We didn't have much to work with - I had S Q-x-x-x H A-K-x D A-J-x C Q-x-x or so, so we went through the textbook 1C-1D-1NT sequence, and Dan H. bid 2C, Stayman. Naturally, I responded 2S, and he raised to 3S, even though I think we'd established that we didn't have enough power for game. His S A-J-9-x H J-x D x-x-x C J-10-9-x wasn't the most promising combination, and I ended up off one. I did manage to make a 1H, but that was about it. We scored some sets when the opponents threw away some contracts, mainly Brent not cashing long cards he'd established while he had the chance. We ended with a goulash where Dan and I had a misfit, as expected, but Jerry had ten hearts and the ace of diamonds and made his 5H bid.

Today's Work: A return to things going well. We started by deciding that since things went so poorly at the end of the last sprint (mainly in terms of my managing to get any reviews done), and since we have so much administrative business to do this week, we'll extend the sprint for another two weeks so we can finish what's been assigned and pick up some other things if we have time. I got the installation working, eventually, with a bit of insight into why it was failing, then merged my work from the last two weeks with the conflicting work that was done in the main branch. Now I can test as I carry on and not run into the same problem I had last week.

I got to do a neighborly favor when I saw a package on my next-door neighbor's porch when I got home. Since it was Halloween, I figured there'd be a lot of traffic in the neighborhood (and there were already a few families trick-or-treating), so I asked her if I should hide the package in a convenient spot nearby, and did so. She stopped by to thank me after she got home. That was nice. I ended the evening intending to record some Hyrule Warriors, but the final DLC update was available, so I downloaded that and checked out the new characters first. They're okay. They'll take some getting used to.

Signature

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
