Derek Jeter. Repeat Saturday shortstop. A really good friend of mine went to Seattle this week to watch Jeter play his last 3 in Seattle. A 3 game sweep for the Yankees, and Jeter was instrumental in all three. Just like any 42 year old in his farewell tour.
CTP teams and the pressure the surfers put on certain servers every time they visit. This week was no exception. Several sites got critically slow this week. If the CTP teams popularity has done nothing else, it has revealed some server vulnerability at some sites.
Speaking of, it is hard for me to understand some of the low scoring teams. You have to have one Kore4 to have a team, so if that person simply logs into CTP everyday it’s worth 2800 points. At 11:00 pm EDT Friday, 5 teams were under that benchmark. Really? You have a team and don’t even log in every day? Begs the question: Why? I really don’t get it.
This week’s hacker watch: Tweetdeck (a popular ap for managing your twitter account), and PF Chang, a popular Chinese restaurant chain. In a related item, a British soccer sponsor managed to tweet the teams passport information just before a friendly match in Miami.
The Lucky 13 managed to move up to 2nd place in the overall rankings last week and to stay in the Premier League for the 7th consecutive week. We still are looking for 2 good team mates with a burning desire to be on the #1 team.
Before the start of the series, the Mariners gave Jeter a seat out of the old Kingdome, he is one of the last players in the game to have played there. They also promised him second base, as bookends of his visits to Seattle. A class act all the way.
Class act doesn’t hurt in business, either.
I’m just sayin’
