Yay! My beater Toshiba laptop is not dead yet.
My pool game was pretty off last night; I attribute it to having new glasses, as well as having not played in months. My play was fine when the distance between the balls was reduced (and no, not just straight shots), but my ability to eyeball distances was compromised -- I consistently hit the cue as I wanted to, and consistently hit the other elements just slightly off.
My favorite overall restaurant in Pittsburgh is Mallorca. Now, if only I had a rich girlfriend to take me there frequently... (I'd probably gain a lot of weight).
And I really enjoy Wipeout Fusion, once we sorted out the whole "saving the game" mess. Real fun.
