Out of the Blue

Amid all this PC work I'm doing in the BlueTower, an upgrade is becoming me... the working PSU I slapped into my work computer is a bit noisier than the wonky one it replaced, which only serves to emphasize how noisy it is in here with three computers running. I think I need to look into updating all these PSUs with some of their spiffier counterparts that produce less noise, as now that I am noticing the electric wind in the background more, it's starting to drive me (more) crazy.

Hamtastic Hammy Ham: Just make two medals; what is so wrong about that? The Olympics are a total sham, but at least the person that won would have a gold medal then.

ray, what i don't understand is why everyone expects Hamm to give it up. there are many, many past examples of football and baseball games (even post-season games) where a ref or an ump blows a call that gives the win to the "wrong" team. and yes, people bitch up a storm about it for days and weeks afterwards - but i have never, ever heard anyone anywhere even *consider* the notion of reversing the outcome of the game and giving it to the team treated poorly by the officials. it is as if it isn't even an option...

just what is it that makes this Hamm scenario so different??
