Two tragedies from last week

Ok two things went horribly wrong last week. The first I posted about which was probably the bigger of the two. As a recap I'll just say that StarCraft 2 was announced. The other is that I can't find my copy of Brood War for StarCraft 1!

I know these are trivial matters compared to the larger world but right now I want to play Brood War!

I just spent most of yesterday wandering around town delivering invitations to various households. My legs are sore from all the walking even though I did make good use of the local transit. *sigh*

In other news the cat attacked me yet again this morning. Insane beast.

New computer research

Darn. Safe to say that old Dolphin can't run it. FTPServ doesn't stand a chance and Mugatroid will be underpowered as it had a hard time with just the website. Good to know this won't come out for a year or so. Give me some time to get a good computer together.

Wedding stuff

Ahhhh! So much wedding stuff. We have done the registry thing and got the wedding invitations setup. All is good! So much left to do though. I'm working on it a little at a time.

A little humor. I could see a couple of people doing that. One more for the smokers out there.

Conference reprise

Ok the conference is now over and everyone is tired and wants to sleep. On the good side I did sleep for a stupid long time last night and I'm feeling better this morning. I'm sitting in the SO's office right now figuring out what to do next.

Conference was good and lots of new ideas came out that should hopefully make next year an easier year to manage from the Scoring perspective. For the most part it was a flawless year except for a few awards that were causing issues at the very end which made everyone stay up later than anyone wanted to.

A few stats for people:

Lines of Code:
  • Scoring: 534
  • Reporting: 1597
  • Post Web Registration: 1141

    Number of Records:
  • .... of Participants: 478
  • .... of Staff: 99
  • .... of Events: 98
  • .... of Results: 1239

    Other stats:
  • .... of hours writing last minute reports: more than 12
  • .... movies watched: 0
  • .... of pizzas ordered: 2

    Until next year folks enjoy the time off for next years preperation!

    Ah! back to the joys of conference for this year. Anyway things are quite normal now that we have our happy rooms of 831* so we don't have to go walking around to just do our work.

    Well since I'm here I don't think I'll be doing a lot of talking so have fun everyone!

    Oh ya photos and video to follow. I hope.
