Today's Bridge: Ken and I teamed up against Mike and Dan, and for having almost no power to work with, we did reasonably well. We set the two contracts they tried in the second rubber and made a 2NT Dbl. For my part, I just held onto the right cards on defense and avoided temptations like leading the ace of diamonds when Mike might be void (he was, and the ace lead would have given him the contract). Dan could probably have made his final 4H contract by crossruffing instead of spending most of his trump to pull mine - I ended up with the good eight of diamonds at the end when he was forced to lead a diamond from the board, and Ken had kept the top spade to cover mine.

Today's Work: I got my documentation and started reading through it. Once again, our mail system decided it didn't want me to do my job, but I already had a copy of the standard that it stripped from the E-mail. I just have to see whether I have the XML schema that someone inexplicably embedded in the Word document as a zip file. I think that's why the E-mail system rejected it.

I posted the Warrior Within video that I encoded on Sunday - should announce that on LJ and Twitter pretty soon. I might have time to do one more commentary tonight, which would be nice to get out of the way.

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!")
