Today's Bridge: The opponents won the rubber, but we did the best we could. I made a dicey 1NT mainly because Jerry ducked my queen of clubs (something like S K-x-x H Q-x-x-x D A-x-x C Q-10-x facing S J-10-x-x H J-x D Q-J-10-9 C A-x-x - I got the club ten on the lead, ran a diamond to Dan's king, got the club return with that queen, crossed to the jack of spades, which held, then cashed my three diamonds and the ace of clubs), and I got to defend my first double-dummy hand when Dan H. opened 3S, then showed up with the A-K-Q of trump, which didn't leave him the power to have any other honors. Unfortunately, Jerry had enough power to take three tricks in addition to the seven spades. I ended in 3H with S A-x-x H Q-J-8-x D A-x-x C x-x-x facing S K-x-x H A-10-x D x-x C A-K-10-x-x or so - we each had a stopper for Jerry's spade suit, but Paul didn't want to bid notrump on those diamonds for me to correct back to clubs. It made 4 - I covered Jerry's singleton jack of clubs on the lead, crossed to my ace of spades, finessed the queen of hearts and picked up the king, pulled two more rounds of hearts, leaving Dan with what I thought was the ten of hearts but was actually the seven, then led a low club to the queen. I won the diamond return, ran the clubs and sluffed one of my diamonds, then overruffed the last club and had two more losers.

Today's Work: I had a bit to do on the old project by request, but I spent most of the day working on the next task in the to-do list. There are two things I need to add to one of our drivers, and one of them becomes much easier if I update the driver to use the newer timer system that was developed a few years ago. It used to be simple enough not to need it, but the new features add a lot of complexity. I got the simpler of the two features done today, or at least as done as I can get it without the ability to test immediately. Tomorrow, I'll have to start on the other one, which will be the tough part. I still need to work out the details of how to make it work. I've got options.

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!")
