I preferred the old keyboard and mouse

Today's Bridge: Finally getting back into the game. It was pretty competitive, but Kevin doubled a 4S contract that the opponents made, and then overcalled 1D with 2D, ending in a 3NT that I couldn't make. Better than his desired diamond contract, though, with a 6-0 diamond split against us.I made the following 2NT with an overtrick, despite a slight misplay - with D Q-J-x facing A-10 and a stopper in every other suit, the correct play was low to the ace, guaranteeing a second trick, but I finessed the ten, which would have required me to cash the ace and then cross back if I'd lost it. It didn't hurt anything, at least.

Today's Work: We spent the early part of the day talking about 32-bit vs. 64-bit stuff in Windows, which is a tricky subject, and then I did some training until it was time to sit in on a build process and learn how it's done. Instead, a problem came up that I had to solve. I found a solution that I didn't like much, and I have another one in mind that's probably better in general, but having something that works to start with is probably good enough for the moment.

I took care of my spring issues by switching to the keyboard and mouse that came with my computer and opening the glass partition of my screen door, so if it gets stuck shut and we have to open it from outside, we can cut through the screen and get to the lever through the gap. I really don't want to have to do that, but it should work. After all that, I got through less than half of the audio cleanup for my final Psychonauts video before getting frustrated with the amount I had to do and quitting. I'll get through it, but I'm trying to turn in earlier in the evenings to try to get a bit more sleep. We'll see whether it works out.
