We went to the oldest grand daughter’s softball game last again and while I can’t see what’s going on it’s important to me to go to some of her games. Unlike last time we went a couple of years ago she’s no longer afraid of the ball. It also seems that she likes stealing bases. She seems very competitive now. The other grand kids didn’t even bother with us but it’s not a bad thing as their is a playground right there and their cousins were there.
We had an Atari 2600 when we were growing up that my aunt who moved to California bought for us for Christmas (I think) one year. I would guess 1983 or so but I can’t remember exactly when. That is certainly one of the earliest things that got me into trying to understand how computers worked. Before that computers were just something I saw on TV. I wanted to know how that little box does these things.
Zynga’s Mafia wars on Facebook is one of those things where I have to keep thinking to my self Why didn’t I come up with that idea. While it seems to be dying off now a lot of people have spent a lot of money on that game. If Zynga didn’t do such a terrible job at mishandling it I really truly believe many people would still be playing and spending a ton of cash on it.
