So tired and yet so unable to sleep

Today's Bridge: Another dud of a day. I started with all four aces, S A-10 H A-9-2 D A-10-9-x-x C A-x-x, but Dan H. pre-empted 2D ahead of me, so I didn't have anywhere to go. Dan C. jumped to 4S, and ended up making it. After a queen of heart lead through H K-J-x D K-J-8-x-x-x C J-x-x-x to the king and my ace, I couldn't bring myself to lead a heart back - if Dan C. had the ten (which he did), it would give him an extra board entry to help him set up the diamonds. I hoped that he had at least one diamond and led the ace, but it was ruffed, and the remaining two aces were all the tricks we got. Removing the hearts early, while we still had trump, may have stopped him. The next hand was almost identical, but it was Jerry who had the ace of diamonds, and he led it from A-J-x at dummy's K-Q-10-x-x-x-x with the full knowledge (in my mind) that declarer had a void. Without that lead, he has to lead diamonds from dummy twice (ruffing one and losing the ace) to set up the suit on the actual distribution, which was just the number of entries he had. Jerry had one decent hand that he bid up to 3H, so with the ace of diamonds and three hearts, I raised to game - off two. The rest of the day belonged to the opponents.

Today's Work: We finished the task we've been documenting. We still need to test the output, but I'm happy with it for the moment. There were some connectivity problems with our repository all day, too - the repository itself was fine, but the administrative parts were inaccessible, at least to me. I hope that gets fixed, because we have a lot of administration to do - I found and fixed a few more issues, so we need to get them reviewed.

I even managed to find a bit of time to get some LP work done tonight. Just audio cleanup for the Gobliins 2 session from this weekend, particularly going through and removing all of the clicks, but it's important progress. I also want to post the next Majin video, but I'll have to get on that right away.

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!")
