Thinking about childhood crushes is weird. And mainly Nickelodeon.

Today's Bridge: I think we only had four people show up today, but even so, I wasn't the bottom draw. My luck has been good. It was a long time before anyone made a contract today, though - Dan H. started us off with a 2NT that seemed like the best contract to bid, but we hammered the minors and the finesses he took out of desperation to save a few tricks all failed, every one, resulting in off four. It kept going from there, until he finally returned with a 3NT where he ran six clubs, forcing me to choose between blocking myself in my hand or establishing the board's spade suit for overtricks. Well played, even if he missed the obvious spade finesse when I'd bid 1NT earlier in the auction, marking myself for just about all of the missing power. I don't think I did anything particularly wrong, though.

Today's Work: I spent the entire day thinking about a weird problem that was described to me. It was my last opportunity to test and try to recreate the problem, but I don't think that would have helped. There's really only one way it could possibly have happened (other than incorrect config files, which I don't think was the problem), and the obvious solution is to remove outdated information that I was storing permanently because there really didn't seem to be any need to get rid of it. It seems that there may be.

My boss stopped by at the end of the day to remind me to bring my laptop home in case the couple of inches of snow we're due to get make it dangerous to get to work. Considering that they're going to be running a 24-hour stress test on the system, going in won't do me much good anyway, but we'll see. It's good to know they've got my back.
