The league started failed to start last week, Wednesday, due to Hurricane. It started this week, on Wednesday night. And, it was an event likely unrivalled in rec league Ultimate history: it started on time. People arriving at 6:35 had already missed the first point. It was an exciting game -- one team led 6-0, then 7-1, then took half (games to 17) 9-4. They lost, 17-16. Evidence of parity. The second game was more lopsided, with one roster looking a little more "balanced" than the other. I think I've already generated enough discussion to see an end to the rank system as it stands; by the end of the season, there will be munitions enough to ensure that. I really don't have an agenda, but I do have a hunch and discomfort with the system as it stands.

And more people than I expected came up to me to congratulate me on the GA system deployed and discuss some more details. If you glazed over the previous post because it looked like ultimate stuff, go back to it. I used a Genetic Algorithm to assign players to teams, and lived to tell the tale.

In other, non-Ultimate news:

corvisdog and I are going camping this weekend, with susancalvin and company.

lunabellaluna got a BlackBerry 7100t. She had given up her previous phone when she left for Honduras, and the 7100t deal was still around and still basically a best-bet. It has been good, because now she can keep up with me on text messaging and we're saving text messaging fees by using the BlackBerry PIN system. It is handled like email, or text messages, but uses BlackBerry's infrastructure for routing, not the cell providers, so they're free. I am 20224D77, if you happen to have one handy.

And my future remains unwritten.
