TWTW: Lucky Thirteen

I like to get these “The Week That Was” updates posted before the end of each weekend and it seems that sometimes I push it a bit. This is one of those times. But it’s my blog and I’ll post when I want to. So without further ado, Week 13 of TWTW…

Phillies Vs. Flyers The Phillies have started off their 2011 season with three straight wins against the Houston Astros. It’s the year of the Four Aces, and everyone has Phillies Phever around here. And that’s OK. The Flyers, on the other hand, are skidding right into the playoffs. At a time when they should be fine-tuning their playoff strategy, they’re lucky if they get a win. I wish them luck, but they’re a big question mark going into the playoffs.

Project Epsilon4 The new computer project is moving along, albeit a little more slowly than I’d prefer. I should be able to order the new hard drive this week and I still have another post or two to write about my adventures so far.

Link Of The Week While the Mental Floss web site is the online home of the magazine of the same name, it is also a destination in its own right. Home to many interesting articles, puzzles and quizzes, it bills itself as the site “where knowledge junkies get their fix.” Make sure you check it out.

That’s it for this time, stop by again soon.
