NFL Week #9 Final

The Tennessee Tuxedos pull off the upset in Washington, so my final record for this week is 10-4. Eeyore is 7-7. Year-to-date that makes me 84-44 (.650). Eeyore is 62-51 (.540). October was a great month for picks for me. In the past four weeks I went 41-15 (.730). Not at all bad.

NFL Week #9 So Far

With two games left to go, my record is 9-3 for this week and Eeyore is 6-6. To top it all off, my fantasy football team seems to be doing quite well this weekend (for once).

UPDATE! After Sunday night, I'm 10-3 and Eeyore is 7-6.

Pondering the Imponderable

Looks like we got all the excitement out of our system yesterday. Today looks like a good day to kick back and watch some football.

After downloading and installing Q3F beta 1F, I played around with it for a little while. It looks interesting, but it locked up my system once. I'm going to see if I can repeat the lock up. Upon Wraith's recommendation I also downloaded Weapons Factory Arena. WFA looks like it might be better, but it is a HUGE resource hog (they recommend a MINIMUM of 128M RAM). Obviously, more research is warrented.

UPDATE! I did manage to reproduce the crash. It happens when I try to use the medic's secondary grenade.

Further testing with Mozilla has gone very well. There does seem to be a slight memory leak somewhere. Otherwise it's been extremely stable. I'm trying to use it as my default browser now. One cool thing is that it must have read my Netscape plugin directory because RealPlayer and Flash worked right away. Pretty slick.

J.t.Qbe comments: So A.T., did you get that extra hour of sleep? I would have, but I squandered it playing Freeciv. They should have addictiveness warnings about that game.

A.T. Hun comments: I tried to, I really did. I was in bed and everything. My mind just refused to go to sleep until my clock showed the right time. How frightfully Pavlovian.
