Today's Bridge: The day belonged to the opponents, since we got mostly garbage hands and the best I could do was stretch a 4C to the breaking point to push the opponents up into 4H, making 5. I did have a makeable 3NT, but I did everything wrong. I had S A-x-x-x H A-10-x-x D A-x C A-Q-x and Dan H. had S Q-10-9-x H K-Q-x D J-x-x C x-x-x. The opening lead was a diamond to Ken's queen, and had I risen with the ace right then, the contract was made - it was pretty obvious that Paul had the king, so the J-x remaining in dummy would have been a stopper. Instead, I held up for one round, then led a spade to the nine and Ken's king. He led a club, and I had to take the ace, because if Paul got in the lead, he'd cash four diamonds. I led another spade, pulling Paul's jack, but decided that since I needed all four hearts, I'd try those before finishing the spades. I went for the split instead of the finesse, and it was wrong - the finesse would have made the contract. Having failed to cash out the spades, I was off three. We did set a couple of contracts along the way, but not doubled.

Today's Work: I got a working version of the functionality I needed - some strange things were happening, and the button looks all wrong, but it was doing about what I wanted it to and it was pretty clear that the commands were going to the right place and causing the right reactions. That's more than I expected to be able to do so soon. And I've got all day tomorrow to try to clean things up.

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!")
