But after Wednesday's game I was happy again. Both Del Piero and Mutu scored and I got 42 points in the end. Not that much maybe but way over average for this Matchday (30 points) and I advanced almost 30 000 places in the overall standings. For the next matchday I will consider Roma and Arsenal players since I think they needs to be watched out for.

The Redmond based software company stopped issuing licences for the Windows 3.x operating systems on 1st November 2008. Microsoft maintained support for Windows 3.x until the end of 2001, and it has lived on as an embedded operating system until 1st November 2008.
Windows 3.0 was originally released on May 22nd 1990. 3.0 came with a lot of improvements, but also with a lack of multimedia and network features, which led to 3.0 being replaced quickly by Windows 3.1. However, the improvements that Microsoft achieved with 3.0 were impressive. The platform offered 32-bit performance, advanced graphics, and full support of the more powerful Intel 386 processor.
New features included at the time were program, file, and print managers, a completely rewritten application development environment with modular virtual device drivers (VxDs), native support for applications running in extended memory and fully pre-emptive MS-DOS multitasking. Microsoft also improved the set of Windows icons.
The program manager and file manager gave users Macintosh-like big icons to click and drag-and-drop. Although it was replaced quickly, Windows 3.0 was widely accepted and respected among third-party hardware and software developers because Microsoft released a new Windows software development kit (SDK) which enabled the developers to focus on writing applications instead of device drivers.
Windows 3.x has found a role onboard some long-haul jet aircraft. As an embedded system, it was used to power such things as cash tills in large stores and ticketing systems. One of its more glamorous uses as an embedded operating system is to power the in-flight entertainment systems on some Virgin and Qantas long-haul jets.

Nu känner jag mig i alla fall tillräckligt motiverad för att göra något vettigt nästa helg, vad nu det kommer att vara. Men det finns ju lite att ta tag i hemma efter flytten fortfarande så vi får se.
Och imorgon smäller det i amerikanska presidentvalet...

I was hoping for some snow yesterday, that would have made the kids happy and snow this early usually melts away rather quickly anyway. But this morning Joakim refused to eat his breakfast and was set to crying mode and I was late gone to the kindergarten because of that so probably it was just fine without snow. However, there were other places in south Sweden who got snow.

Under sina dryga sextio år som kördirigent har Eric varit en banbrytare inom både ny och tidig musik, lett Radiokören och Orphei Drängar och dessutom undervisat i stort sett varenda kördirigent i landet. Hans betydelse för det svenska körsoundet kan knappast överskattas och de stående ovationerna redan när denne numera bräcklige 90-åring får när han får hjälp in på podiet i Konserthuset igår var helt på sin plats (såg ett reportage i ABC-nytt).
Grattis Eric och Tack för allt!

The text under the picture reads: "Scientists from teh RAND Corporation have created this model to illustrate how a "home computer" could look like in the year of 2004. However the needed technology will not be economically feasible for the average home. Also the scientists readily admit that the computer will require not yet invented technology to actually work, but 50 years from now scientific progress is expected to solve these problems. With teletype interface and the Fortran language, the computer will be easy to use."
