8/29 Venting, Cheering, H2H playoffs and Hurricanes/Typhoons

Postby kab21 » Mon Aug 29, 2011 8:30 am

IT'S A TYPHOON DAY! But no work = no pay. The US isn't the only place with a hurricane. Southern Taiwan (my current home) was hit by Typhoon Nanmadol today. It was originally expected to hit as a category 3 but just like Hurricane Irene it fizzled out. But it probably rained 200-300 mm's (10-15 inches) here. And it will probably rain for 2 more days.

This week's photo of the week is from last week. I was sick this week and didn't take any photos. My blog

Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Taken with my new tripod that costs 3 months rent. I have my priorities straight I think.

Standard Yahoo H2H leagues start their playoffs this week. Who's in and who's out of the H2H playoffs?

I am in and I was barely able to hold onto the #2 seed which comes with the 1st rd bye and guaranteed money finish.

Previous poll results
8/22 poll - the Astros, Orioles, Cubs, Padres and Mariners were voted the 5 biggest losers
8/9 - Diamondbacks edged the Giants - 85-89 wins
7/25 - Pirates and Brewers tied with the Cards close behind - 85-89 wins
7/18 - Phillies and 90+ wins was nearly unanimous
6/27 - Red Sox and 90+ wins was nearly unanimous
6/20 - Rangers (nearly unanimous) with 85+ wins (nearly even split between 85-89 and 90+ wins)
6/13 - Tigers with 85-89 wins

Typed up on my tiny netbook while I install linux on a brand spanking new computer. Hopefully I figure this out in the next year.

think lugging your steel tripod around on a backpacking trip.

and perhaps you're not considering the other variable.

The other variable being that you are homeless?

It's full size and sturdy, carbon fiber, 2.2 lbs and folds up to 16.5". $300USD and it was mine.

And I'm not homeless because that would suck with the tropical storm that we're having.

Looking like a 2nd seed in the dynasty but fighting to make the last playoff spot in the Cold Stove. 3.5 games with 12 cats is doable, right? :-o
