one confused computer

this is one for the pages of wierd and confused. from the time i moved into my new place, my computer went wierd. i went from a cable hook-up to a phone hook-up (without the disruption of the pfone line). when i tried to surf the net or talk with katie on msn messenger, it would get stupid. (couldn't find server while surfing or messenger shutting down on its own). this was happening since thursday - at least till today. today i havent had any problems at all. it mysteriosly decided to behave itself and im puzzled by it. ( i think it was the threat of using a cable hookup). anyways. an interesting story

samsug radio shack 500

greg biffle won his 2nd race of the season in texas today. i missed this race because of human error of my own. i remember to get the race to tape THIS MORNING instead of doing it last night and had everything set up except to put the timer on. jimmie johnson still leads the points. next race in phoenix and the subway fresh 500 on saturday night. oh boy saturday night racing.

a cool thing on mlb.com

i discovered something new on mlb.com this season. it's called game mini. what you do is: 1. obviously go to mlb.com. 2. find a game in progress and click on the little diamond on it. when you click on the diamond the game in progress should come up. kinda like a virtual electronic view of the field. 3. on the top left side should say "game mine." what that does is shrinks the game to where you can still see what you're doing and still keep an eye on the game. give it a shot.

food city 500

this was some race at bristol. 14 cautions (i think, not sure though). kevin harvick won this wild one on the "fastest half-miler" in nascar. lots of cars hitting each other causing most of the cautions. one caution involved 14 cars, while another involved 7. the scariest one was when jimmie johnson bumped jeff burton and spinning him, sending burton into the inside wall. after he hit the wall, jeff burton slid back up the track. at the same time kurt busch was coming and wasnt expecting burton to slide back up. before they knew it, front to front meeting. they came out okay. good thing for the HANS device attached to the helmets and tethered to the seats. the HANS device its to keep the Head And Neck restrained incase of a head to head crash. anyways, theres bristol for ya. next week, another short track race. the advance auto parts 500 in martinsville.

beginning of april

its the start of april, and i can smell the baseball season already. season starts on sunday when the boston red sox visit the new york yankees. first time they meet (duh) since the a.l.c.s. when boston came back to beat the yankees 4 games to 3. the yankees make a return visit to boston with a threee game series starting april 11. that night is when the red sox get their world series rings and raise the world series banner. yay for baseball.
