Out of the Blue

Happy World Usability Day! Thanks Morris, who resends a related video that was posted here earlier this year: How to open a door - Finnish instructional video from 1979.

The storm ended overnight and I managed to get the walk shoveled and a car dug out, so things are fine here, and are all set for the next storm. I think that's due in around a week, but in the meantime, they say temperatures should be in the 60s over the weekend, just to keep us off guard. One can only hope those displaced or without power from Sandy were able to get through this okay.

And it's football Thursday, and for the reader who chided me for not commenting on the Giants loss on Monday, I'm trying to isolate my NFL talk here to the one little blurb a week. So for the record, yes, the Giants lost, and no, I didn't enjoy it. Last week our experts' expertise was in full display, as the results were pretty cooperative with our picks. The outcome was Cutter and Jivaro (12-2); Blue, Creston, and Batman (11-3); mag and Verno (10-4), and Rigs (8-6). No time to rest on our laurels (no matter how comfortable they are), here goes for this week: Colts, Buccaneers, Dolphins, Patriots, Ravens, Broncos, Giants, Lions, Saints, Seahawks, Cowboys, 49ers, Texans, and Steelers.
