Today's Bridge: Kevin came back to fill our table, and played about half of the contracts. I played none. I put Dan H. in a couple of contracts where I had six diamonds to the A-K, but he couldn't capitalize on the long suits and ended up pulling all of the trump, then giving up several tricks in the suit where I was void. I had a fun time trying to find leads against 4D from S Q-x-x H A-Q-x-x-x-x D x-x C K-x. I picked spades at every opportunity, which eliminated my winner there, but gave me safe exits every time I took one of my other tricks, and Dan was able to supply a fourth. Finally, we managed a 4H contract when I takeout doubled with a 20-point hand. I did have four losers off the top in the black suits, but fortunately, Dan had a singleton spade. He invited me to play my first contract as game in spades, but Kevin cut in with 5C, and with a minimum opening hand, I hadn't even been planning to raise the invite. Dan doubled, and Kevin let me ruff a diamond rather inexplicably in an attempt to get rid of a spade loser. We cashed a couple more spades and ended up with a three-trick set.

Today's Work: We finished our deliverable version, although it's probably sitting in CM limbo at the moment. Now I'm trying to learn how to set up an automated build tool, which will be next to impossible given our build process, and trying to figure out why a particular operation takes so long but doesn't display any kind of progress indicator.

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!")
