Skating federation to investigate controversial Olympic judging. I told you they were ROBBED! But I am only going on the small clips I saw last night because, silly me, I fell asleep on the couch before I started up the Tivo! I missed the finals! I am so bummed. Anyone know where I can find them online? [via Robyn]
Last week I received an e-mail with FTP information for a domain hosted on at Earthlink. I received another version of it today, with a message informing me that the username & password to FTP for the site. Again, coming to one of my rarely used domains. I finally did a Whois and looked up the new owner. Gave him a call, and sure enough – he set everything up over the phone and they entered the e-mail address wrong. He just called them about half an hour before I called requesting they send the information again because he hadn’t received it. Oops! I sent it on to him, and he was so thankful that I called. I think he was about to call Earthlink and give them a piece of his mind! Such a nice gentleman. I’m glad I called so he didn’t keep wondering what was going on!
Off to save the world! Ok, ok, really I’m getting back to work. I’ve churned out a lot this morning and I don’t want to lose the momentum! I will return to blog world later today!
I was going to rant about NBC not replaying tonight’s Olympics. Last night the same thing that I had seen at 7pm aired again at 11pm or so. Tonight? Nope. I was getting “highlights” when I first turned on the TV. I was bummed too, since I had to work late and I had missed the Pairs Figure Skating finals. I already know who won (and Sale & Pelleteir were robbed) but I still want to watch it. Or rather Tivo it. I was really happy to see NBC replay the coverage at 12:45. Yeah! I get my skating! The Pairs are probably my favorite of the skating events, although I enjoy them all. I need to look and see what’s next … when are the Men’s Figure Skating events?
I failed to mention this the other day, but hopefully they were too sleepy to notice. My HUGE congratulations to my cousin Ken & his wife Kristen on the birth of their ADORABLE son, William Russell Kralick. He was born at 4:28 am, February 7, 2002 and is a wee one at 6lb 1oz and 18 and 1/4 inches long. (Considering Jason was 8lbs and 10 1/2oz when he was born, anything under 8lbs is super tiny to me!) Best of wishes to the new parents, the proud grandparents, and the rest of the family!
The medieval practice of illiterate peasants signing an “X” in place of their name required a witness to kiss this mark to prove sincerity. this eventually evolved into the “X” being a shorthand symbol of a kiss. Wow, bet you didn’t know that, did you? [via Marmalade Maermaid]
