It's back, but just AS IS. I had trouble sending out emails to people, so I thought I'd post here.

Expect it to be just as buggy as before. The difference is that this time I won't fix the bugs unless it crashes the entire server :) Enjoy!

Sitter Request
I'm going to be away for the weekend and will need somebody to keep an eye on a game for the moment. Should be just one set of moves, maybe two, and I can PM them to you.

Let me know. Thanks!

Brazil's getting attacked, but it's still in good shape. It's also got lots of people on its side. ;)

profanity
Is it something I have to get used to, people throwing F... you's at me when I attack someone. My daughter was reading over my shoulder when I got a profanity laced message from an opponent. Its just a game after all.

it's pretty damn bad. both for dc, and for many places that normally get snow in the winter.
Geez, the snow is NOT as bad as they make it seem. I am in the Philadelphia area, and the entire local newscast is devoted to the weather. Actually, from about 6am to 11pm last night, I think most stations did nothing but local news. Wow, we set the yearly record of snow for a winter. Big deal. Wait a day or two, the snow will be out of the way, and life goes on.

It snowed. It snowed badly. Then the plows came, moved the snow, and life goes on.

I was in Haverford on Tuesday and it didn't seem like the plows moved much of anything.

And that was before this latest storm.

@DJ - agreed. The roads in my complex aren't perfectly pristine - big deal. So I drove *slowly* until I got to a major road. Amazingly, I didn't skid out and explode in a fiery ball of death.

Granted, there's a little more space out here in the sticks (Downingtown area) than in Center City, where there are only so many places to dump snow, and mass transit isn't coping well, but things will be back to normal tomorrow.
stratagos (3269 D (S))
11 Feb 10 UTC
That was for Jones, not Bent ;)
@Stratagos - You were one of the lucky ones, there were probably 5 people who DID explode into a fiery ball of death, be thankful you drove sensibly:p
djbent (2572 D (S))
11 Feb 10 UTC
well maybe yall in philly are more used to it, or got lucky, but it's totally shut DC down. we have never gotten this much snow, ever. we're used to maybe an inch and it melts the next day.
stratagos (3269 D (S))
11 Feb 10 UTC
Bent, you guys got a little more snow, and you don't really have anywhere to *dump *it.

The Redskins probably suck so badly it brings a low pressure area ;)

(my wife is going to kill me for that one ;) )
DJ, no, as I said, it set a record, so its not something people were used to. We had two monster storms in 4 days, just like you did in DC (actually, I believe they both hit the Philadelphia area harder than DC.) And there's people here making a big deal out of it two. But it isn't, it just isn't.
djbent (2572 D (S))
11 Feb 10 UTC
well, it is a big deal here, so i guess we are having different experiences
stratagos (3269 D (S))
11 Feb 10 UTC
In the 'things are shut down' department, I think we're both in the same boat - but I think Dingle is pointing out we're not digging out of six feet dumped in twelve hours, and there aren't widespread power outages, etc
I think maybe we just have a different opinion of what 'big deal' means. So your office or school is shut for 2 days. I'm not sure that's a big deal.

lucky you all. ;-] houston snowed for the first time this year, my first time seeing snow as well.

djbent (2572 D (S))

my office actually isn't shut, but everything else (public schools, most offices, the feds) is shut all week. and believe me, i grew up in maine, so i've seen way more snow than this. but i moved to dc b/c we DON'T get snow (usually) and for this city, this is definitely a big deal.

so you're a real tough guy and the snow doesn't phase you. congrats ;P

the buses aren't running, a good portion of the subway is shut down. the supermarket near my house has no fresh produce, no eggs, milk, flour or meat. there were a lot of power outages. and we just don't have the infrastructure to clear the snow.
At the mention of supermarkets, is it just my area, or does everybody buy french toast ingredients right before a snow storm?
stratagos (3269 D (S))
11 Feb 10 UTC
It's not just you, and as someone who didn't grow up in a snow area, I find it completely bizarre. What, you can't live without eggs for two days? If you eat that many, why don't you have some in the fridge *now*?
Idunno, but I live in the Lehigh Valley, about an hour north of Philly, and all I ever hear about in school is various teachers comparing french toast recipes right before a snowstorm.
Stratagos, I stopped at the supermarket before the last storm, not to get 'staples', but to get Red Potatoes. (Needed it for a recipe). I heard someone ask why people stop to get bread and milk before a storm, and I heard a woman (in line in front of me with bread and milk) 'you need it for school lunches'. Now, school had already been cancelled for the following day.

Your kids will survive for 2 days without milk. If you have a chance, yes, by all means get it, but why there is a rush I never understood. There was a rush on Tuesday night. So that means, in absence of the snow, all these people would be going on Wednesday or Thursday ordinarily to get milk??
stratagos (3269 D (S))
11 Feb 10 UTC
no no - see, I bought milk, eggs, and bread for the *last* storm, but then immediately threw it out once the snow stopped - so I had to go get it *again*.

Because that's how I roll

Ok, I live in CT and I'm actually pretty pissed at our idiot weathermen. haha We had people predicitng anywhere from 8 to 24 inches of snow up here, and guess what, we got THREE INCHES. This is what it's been like all year. Everyone says it's going to be terrible up in the North East, and then the mid to south atlantic coast gets hit really really bad while we move on without more than a few inches. It's really pathetic. I ended up being "snowed in" by 3 inches of snow.

haha, yeah philly doesn't usually get to much snow, does it? It's so stragne, this year we have had an incredibly light winter. I don't think we've gotten anything more than 6 inches. Compared to the last 5 years or so thats like nothing, cause we've had some years where we had like 2 1/2 feet. Looks like the weather decided to reverse it's self.

Anyone else think that Buzz is a crap name for...
...the new Google social network service?

I'm a Philistine and a Luddite at heart but I reckon I have a fair call on product names. To me, at least, Buzz seems the sort of attempt at naming a company like McKinsey would have come up with in a clumsy attempt to associate with the whole aura of buzz words.
