Today's Bridge: Raymond made up our four, but Dan H. and I were partners, so we used Precision. Aside from a hand where I took a gamble on 1NT with a weak club doubleton only to find partner also with a weak club doubleton (and we still would have made it with a 5-4 club split, but we had to lose six and the ace of hearts), we came out on top the whole way. The opponents went for a couple of games that didn't quite work, particularly when Dan had opened 1C and they ended up in 4H. I was surprised that they were only off one in the end, but I brought all of a queen of diamonds (top of five) to the table that hand. I took another gamble when he opened 1D, and with S Q-x H K-Q-x-x D A-K-x-x C J-x-x, it was a fairly natural auction - 1H, 2C, and I considered jumping to 4D to invite game, but I thought he might take that as support for clubs and contented myself with 2D. He bid 2H, and with a pretty good picture of his hand, I jumped to 4D, inviting game in what seemed like our best fit. He bid 5C, promising five of them, so I let him have it. He lost the two spades, and that was it.

Today's Work: It was a succession of disasters, as a fix that I'd suggested for one problem didn't work until I made another fix to support it, and then a piece I worked on a long time ago turned out to work only for one account rather than all accounts, which broke everything until I happened to trip over the solution. At least I got there in the end, but we've only got one working day left in this sprint, so I don't know whether we'll be able to fit the fix in, no matter how high-priority it is and how difficult it would be to go backward from where we are. I'll find out tomorrow.

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!")
