Out of the Blue

Had a misunderstanding (yeesh!) with network solutions today, as anyone who visited this morning and found their landing page parked here. It should be straightened out now, but you have my apologies. This also impacted my email: I don't know if messages got bounced along the way, but once it was cleared up I got a backlog, but if you sent mail since last night, it's possible it wasn't received. Apologies for the downtime.

Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Brutality.
Science: The life and death of Buran, the USSR shuttle built on faulty assumptions.
NRDC: Clean Energy The Most Affordable Way To Power The US.
Media: The Terror of Being Caught With Porn.

8-8 for me. Sucks that we can't even look at the weekly results for the league.

Enh, not as bad as I first thought. If Denver pulls it off tonight I'll be 8 and 8 once more. Damn, this season is hella unexpected so far.

Well, actually... I've only missed five so far and have Denver for tonight's game. Don't worry though, I'll probably miss twelve games next week to make up for it.
Nice job, WarPig.

As no Manc myself, i think the game would have been different with Van Persie and Rooney on from the get-go. Nevermind that though, how jammy were Spurs?

Do you Brits really understand this gobbledygook?

No.

All of the games were actually very strange. All 3 weeks this year have been odd and I am sure someone is making a ton of money in Vegas, and the majority of people are losing a ton. Miami is 3-0 WTF!?

Yeah, it's been nuts. Miami is 3-0. The Lions are 3-0. The Vikings, Giants, and Pittsburgh are all 0-3. San Fran is 1-2, they're worse than the Jets right now. It's like football bizarro-world...even if the Vikings are a question mark with Ponder, losing to the Lions (even if they're better than they used to be) and the Browns in the first three weeks is....well.


I'm glad the site issues are taken care of, way too many sites over the years have disappeared on me with just a blip like that :(

Lions are actually 2-1. Lost to the Cardinals.

If you look at the grand scheme of things yes, but of course if you have so narrow a view that you haven't even read the thing, then yeah, LYFAO'away ;).
Really? How come it only survives with massive Feed in Tariffs(FIT programs). Nuclear is the most affordable way to go, though it's not nearly so clean. And of course, "clean energy" requires a lot of really dirty manufacturing.

I think I'll end up at 9-7 from last week, it was a pretty rough week.
That will be a good week I suspect, possibly good enough to lead for the week.

Speaking of next week, it doesn't look a whole lot easier - lot's of home dogs.

Sophomore QB. Never fails.

And yeah, Vikings suck. Failed 3 times on them, I've failed 3 times on the fucking Lions. At least the Jets won me a game!

Wow, that was a rough day for football yesterday. Yikes!

Yeah, 4-1. I did not see that coming, even without RVP I thought Man Utd would put up a fight. Too early for Moyes' position to be under real threat but that's a blow for him.

As no Manc myself, i think the game would have been different with Van Persie and Rooney on from the get-go. Nevermind that though, how jammy were Spurs? And Di Canio getting his red card today - dont get me wrong I have little sympathy for self professed fascists, but 5 games? That sounds like an excuse. Cant say i blame them on reflection.

Rooney's good spurts seem to be getting less frequent and shorter. I think the Sunderland board are the only people who didn't see this coming with Di Canio, apparently the senior players got fed up and went over his head with their concerns. Spurs deserved it but David Marshall didn't.

I would just like to say... JETS BABY!

I think I'll end up at 9-7 from last week, it was a pretty rough week. Most of my fails were picks where I changed my mind though, not doing that this week. I feel good that I got the Carolina game right though and in my family pool even predicted a blowout. Don't know what is up with SF, they've got it all on paper but just can't put it together.

Minnesota sucks BTW, lost on them every time. Losing to the Browns hahah.

8 days till GTA Online.. *mumbles*

With the state many of the game's current online functions are in, I really don't expect it to launch or be at all playable on Oct 1st...

Very true. If it can't handle uploading a jpg, it sure as hell isn't ready for the huge influx multi will be.
