Out of the Blue

Something I love: The time-saving macro functions of my Logitech G510 keyboard. Something I hate: Having to re-enter these macros for the second time in a couple of weeks. The first time was mostly my fault: I had two different profiles, and managed to over-write the useful one with what was essentially an empty one, which I'll partly blame on the software for making this too easy to do. Then yesterday I lost them all on a reboot, so I really don't know what happened, but it wasn't good. There's no function to explicitly "save" the macros, but there is a way to import and export them, so I guess I'll play with that to ensure I'm backed up.

the be fair that was mostly a german b team, and i do agree with your assessment of the others, but looking at it just from pure ability, we're probably about the 20th best team in the world, and the worst team in the group. other groups at least have cupcakes ranked closer 100 than 10, but we get a murderer's row. ouch. now i'm just hoping we can at least beat ghana for some payback.

A win vs. the German "b team" is not worthless. This "b team" defeated the English lions @ Wembley just a couple of weeks ago.
The US team is pretty good, I think they should win vs. Ghana and maybe even vs. Portugal. And at least a draw vs. Germany is possible. Don't give up on them - they can pull this off!
 
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.
