Jane & I really suck at bridge right now.  It's terribly frustrating to go to our league for every event and end up bringing up the rear every single fricking time. 

I think we've hit a plateau in terms of our playing skill that we need to find a way to break through ... somehow ...

KITT is up for auction.

Knight Rider was the geeky show of my youth.  I've never been a car geek, but as a kid I loved watching that show.  (I've tried watching it in reruns lately, and the show doesn't seem nearly as interesting now.  Maybe it's just the era, or the fact that I'm older.)

Yeah, none of the buttons inside the car do anything.  But the swooshy light in the front works, and it still makes the sound. 

I guess I've found the car for my mid-life crisis.  :)

[And it looks like the Red Wings & Pistons both pulled out playoff wins at the last minute.  Sweet.]

Cool "Why CS?" Videos

Why CS? (From the University of Washington)

These are exceedingly cool YouTube videos that talk about why one ought to study CS ... and what a typical day in the life of a CS person looks like.  Well worth looking at.  (I've added these to my "subscriptions" on YouTube, if anyone cares.)

(Sheesh.  Four entries in one day.  I really need to get a life ...)
