NFL Week #16

Because they are insisting on playing this game anyway (and even having the unmitigated gall to say that it still has playoff ramifications), I must pick the Packers. I guess. Not sure why.

The Master comments: Eeyore is in agreement on the pick.

Pocket Tunes 4.0 Released

Normsoft has released Pocket Tunes 4.0, the latest and greatest version of the popular music player for PalmOS devices. The main new features are AAC/aacPlus playback, album art display, and improved Internet streaming functions. Check it out. You can also peruse Palm Infocenter's review.

I got the basic version of Pocket Tunes 3.0 free with my Palm TX. I paid to upgrade to the deluxe version. I felt the new features were enough to get me to upgrade to 4.0 as well. My only complaint thus far is that many of the Internet stations listed in the program won't let me connect to them for one reason or the other. The review above mentions that too.

NFL Catch-Up

Well, since I haven't done the totals for the past three weeks, I'd better catch up. This week we tied at 10-6. Last week Eeyore was 10-6 while I was 8-8. The week prior to that I was 10-6 while she was 8-8. So basically the past three weeks saw us end up with equal 28-20 records. Overall that makes her 137-86 (.614) while I am 130-93 (.583). The good news is that my fantasy team won this week to advance to the conference championship. This is the first time that I've won two playoff games in all the years I've had a team. Ph34r the Wombats!

As an aside, I liked the comment that Michael Rosenberg of the Detroit Free Press had about Sunday's "epic" Lions-Packers game: "We now know what happens when the unwatchable force meets the irrelevant object. The Packers beat the Lions, 17-9, in a game that had serious repercussions for anybody who watched it."
