Pondering the Imponderable

I try to teach my kids to share, but their various illnesses I wish they would keep to themselves. I've been fighting some bug for a week now. Unlike last Monday I can actually think/function today. Nothing like adding an all-day meeting on Friday (along with a 2.5 hour drive) to make you feel better. Or not.

I ordered a Boxwave Crystal screen protector for my Palm TX and decided to order a new one for my Tungsten E that I was passing down to my wife. The old Boxwave lasted two full years on that one! The new one for the T|E was a tight fit. I forced a bit of it under the bezel. Unfortunately, that caused the digitizer to stop functioning! Once I removed the protector it worked again, but now the screen whines. Sigh. I also snagged a new EB Cases Slipper case for my TX. They are quite swank.

I was using Pocket Tunes on my TX and a WiFi connection to listen to the Hard Radio Ogg Vorbis stream today. If that isn't geek Nirvana, I'm not sure what is. Even though I've really been beating on the TX, I'm still only recharging it twice a week. Now that I've let it run down a few times, I'll probably mainly trickle-charge it through the USB cable.

In other news, my wife and I beat the original Ratchet and Clank this past week. Loyal reader Zombie has been singing the praises of Ratchet: Deadlocked, so I've got a feeling that that might show up on a Christmas list. It's funny that my wife rolled her eyes when I originally suggested getting a PS2. Now she plays it much more than I do!

NFL Week #10 So Far

Since we had the same picks, naturally Eeyore and I are tied at 9-4. It'd be nice if we could cap everything off with a victory tonight. Double-digit victories are always A Good Thing. In other news, my Fightin' Wombats continued their relentless assault on the regular season, winning 111-84. This despite the fact I lost my leading rusher, Priest Holmes, for the season. I lead my league at 8-1-1.

NFL Week #10

Well, I can take consolation in the fact that it is mathematically impossible for Eeyore to do better than she did last week. I can also be thankful that this case of bubonic death that my kids shared with me can't last forever either, mercifully. Anyway, here are my picks: Chiefs, Bears, Lions (God himself only knows why), Colts, Patriots, Giants, Jaguars, Broncos, Panthers, Falcons, Seahawks, Redskins, Steelers, Cowboys.

The Master comments: Eeyore's picks are the same. So, nothing will be changing this week. It will be interesting to see if a perfect week is pulled out again.
