Last episode of The Sea Devils tonight... should be entertaining

Today's Bridge: I drew the top card and got partnered with New Dan, which led to some auctions as interesting as I'd expected. Some of them were overbid, but I think he underplayed a 3H a bit. Probably not makeable even so. I went for slam with S K-Q-J-x-x-x H K-x D K-x C A-Q-x when Dan supported my spades, but he bid two aces and 10-12 points, so I elected to stick with 5S. He had something like S A-x-x H Q-x-x D A-x-x-x C J-10-9 - the club finesse worked for 6, and Paul held his ace of hearts for two rounds to give me all seven. I actually considered chancing the slam even so, but we had a partscore and I wanted to make sure we finished our game.

Today's Work: The official announcement was made today - I'm going to be taking over the position of software task lead for the project I'm on. That's it. It may or may not sound like as big a deal as I made it out to be, but it's a pretty important job, and I'll have a lot of control over how we do software development. It's also a lot of responsibility, and I've got a lot to learn before I can be effective in the position. It was worth driving all the way to the lab and lugging my laptop up and down stairs again... maybe. At least I think I have the data I've been waiting to collect. It's burned onto two CDs, one of which is pretty scratched. I hope the other survives until I get it to work tomorrow. Speaking of which, time for another dose of nighttime pain meds, then bed. If these things can make me sleep through an alarm, maybe they're doing me some good.
