The new russcon mailing list at russcon.org seems to be working fine, yay. Thanks again PJ for setting that up.

A cow-orker Greg and I discovered that in recent versions of Mozilla you can right click text and view properties to see what language it is, if the page uses lang attributes appropriately. Fun!
Possibly somebody at RussCon "accidentally" recorded a strange answer message on my answering machine...? It was humorously strange but I didn't know about it for several days, so if perchance the perpetrator is reading this, please try not to do it again...

We had a very exciting game of Carcassonne Hunters and Gatherers... The lead fluctuated around a bit, then it seemed Steve pulled ahead when he weaseled into the large water network, nullifying my and Clayton's advantage from it, and he pulled ahead in the farms race in a huge field. I had a desperate farmer I placed late to try to weasel into that field, but it would require me getting a 3-way intersection tile. Then on Clayton's last turn he placed a farmer which would also get into that field if mine did, and on my turn (the last of the game), the tile I drew was the tile I longed for, the 3-way intersection! Clayton and I rejoiced as we both pulled ahead of the leader Steve. Clayton was already ahead of me, so I didn't win, but at least I went from a distant last to a close second.
Dan managed to win Blokus perfectly, placing all his pieces, and his singleton was placed last.
More Das Amulett action... it seems that my first-game win a few weeks ago was a fluke, and in reality I suck at this game. The first game today ended with Steve winning (yet again) with me having zero (0) (nul) (nada) (zip) jewels! What a debacle. The second game (which Steve won yet again) I did better at least.
