Out of the Blue

Since the little spate of problems I recently encountered on the network here in the BlueTower abated, I decided to take advantage of the small lull in this abnormally news-filled summer (along with the fact that everything is working now) to mess things up. Actually I am working on creating some further redundancy and better disaster recovery here for the next disaster... I don't think the "if it's not broke, don't fix it" rule is so much applicable here as much as a "stitch in time." Of course this is how I console myself when I find myself pulling another all-nighter crawling around the floor wiring things voluntarily after just spending a day doing it by necessity... It helps me convince myself it's not just that I am a masochist.

I believe that Hamm did a very poor job of handling the controversy. He should have kept his mouth shut and let others handle the situation, but he did not.

BUT, if the Koreans want video used to determine his starting score then it needs to be used to score his entire routine..which therefore would cost him for using 4 holds on the bars instead of 3 and Hamm would get the gold anyway.

Bringing video into a completely subjective sport (sports which are ripe for corruption and controversy anyway and suck for olympic competition) should not be done in any case.

And I kind of liked AVP. I went in with such low expectations that I was able to enjoy it for what it was...mindless fun
