Today's Bridge: Mostly failures - I stretched bids on a couple of hands and the distributions made the hands impossible. It was only when the opponents were going for their second game that things sort of swung back our way, largely since the 1NT they went for that was off four was neither doubled nor vulnerable. Dan C. declared 3NT and had it by far, with five clubs (four if I had three to the queen, but I didn't), two hearts, three spades, and at least one diamond. Instead, he took the top two clubs, the top three spades, and the top two hearts, then threw it to my queen of hearts (the only honor I had) to cash the last two spades, the somehow established five of hearts, and a diamond through Dan's A-Q to Paul's K-x. I have no idea why he would do that.

Today's Work: I took on what I considered to be the most difficult effort, and although I don't think my solution is very good or quite complete, it works and does what it's supposed to do. I'm just in that unhappy state between getting the system to read a configuration file but not having it write the config file properly, so I have to keep updating it every time I run. That should all be automatic, so I need to figure out what's wrong. But I think I gave myself a few weeks to get it working, and discounting the idle thinking time that led up to it, I got what I got in a day. I grossly underestimate myself. Still, there are things I'll need to clean up now that I know the basic method works.

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!")
