Out of the Blue

Happy birthday to link-meister Ant. As a gift, I present you the best football weekend of the season, as the four-game championship weekend is upon us, which will be followed by just three more games over the next three weeks. Putting a poor showing during the season behind me, I hit three of the games last week, and tied with RoboNerd for the lead in our little playoff pool, and all my brackets remain intact. So there, enjoy the games if you're watching, and happy birthday Ant, and thanks, as always, for supplying all the great links over the years.

Errhm...i'm a colts fan to! Haha

Anyways was a great season, and an improvement from last year. We had more injuries all year then any team, so i'm really looking forward to next year. For now i'll be rooting for everybody but new england.

According to this, the Giants lost the most starts to injury this year.

You are right sir, 91 vs 83 (turns out colts were 2nd most decimated), damn that explains the bad year the giants had. I expect both to be healthy and reloaded for next year!

I was thrilled to see the Colts get clobbered. I think they are a good team but my ex-boss whom I hate more than almost any human being on the planet is a huge Colts fan. I'm not above pettiness when it's so satisfying!

Happy Birthday, Ant - now go buy a damn Win7 machine!

Thanks, but why? My current one works fine. I don't even game these days, remember? What I do want is more free time, energy/motivation, and :)ness!

Because XP gets no further security patches whatsoever after April 8th?


I am aware of that. I ran old unsupported OS versions like updated W2K SP4, Red Hat Linux v7.x, etc. in the past. I will upgrade/replace my XP Pro. SP3 one day. I was supposed to install 64-bit W7 HPE SP1 during my Christmas 2013 break, but I was too BUSY and tired (unmotivated) with life. I didn't even get to catch up with the Internet like BN (missed daily news between 11/19/2013 and 12/18/2013 (did I miss anythign big/much?) according to my notes)!

Yeah, that one left me scratching my head too.

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

happy birthday ant

I anticipate your response 3 days from now per usual

edit: Ah damn you're about to reply early.
Is this early enough? I am slowly catching up on BN so it could be days, weeks, months, years, etc. late.

Thanks all!

Blue, I care not about NFL. I don't even watch Super Bowls' games, but do watch their expensive commercials/ad(vertisement)s/spots! I did like that power outage that interrupted last year's big game that made 49ers almost win.


I do like NBA though, but Lakers suck so I care not about NBA these days. I am just a bandwagon fan.

I assumed the lateral was a planned part of the play and he simply let his forward momentum affect his throw.

Happy level-up day, Ant! Invest those points wisely!

And good for Disney. Star Wars is scheisse. Scheisse Wars. They should make the Thrawn trilogy - animated at that.
