Its a bit stormy and France through

Well after the recent heatwave the inevitable electrical storms have arrived. This is the second day of them and I have an inch of water sitting in my back yard waiting to drain away.

With this has come power failures with the electricity up and down all day yesterday (it was a ghost town with all the local business's having to shut down) - this has continued today. Luckily for me I work on laptops (yes more than one) so the power has never been down long enough to stop me working - I just keep losing my internet connectivity.

I'm going to miss the World Cup when its over this weekend - another interesting game last night between France and Portugal with France winning through on a single goal (penalty).

There's been a lot of good teams in this tournament, but with Argentina going out there was not a single team in the last 8 who I would say are head and shoulders above anyone else. France, Portugal, Germany, Italy especially have looked pretty equal.

I am looking forward to the final on Sunday even though England will not be in it. It could go either way - but I think Italy will win.

Your router would run for a fairly long time on even a small UPS, worth considering.

Is it me, or do you have more time to blog these days? ;O)

Yes I must use a UPS - 11 hour working days because I don't have to travel to clients gives me a lot more time!

I'm really getting into writing again - its a good take your mind off other stuff like software issues - its all good therapy!

how Italy can win against France. France didn't defeat any finals , ever [including euro/world cup] remenber 2000 ? In addition to that Italy didn't win against France since 1978. So I guess that for his last game Zizou is going to make THE game ... as Vieira. Thuram. Makelele too

I'm not only writing that because I'm french :-)

btw thanks a lot your blog template.

In one of the most prominent arrangement/ design of Mahjong solitaire, which is called turtle, I have enhanced from winning about 1 in 3 games (35%) to winning more than 2 in 3 (70%) by adopting appropriate strategy.
