So as I sit here watching the Falcons dominate against the Cardnials, the comment was made about teaching the youngsters about sportsmanship. The context was this. The falcons are up 41-7, and have the ball on the Arizona 5 yard line. The guys in the booth were commenting on weather or not the Falcons would elect to just take a knee for a few plays or try to score.

Someone then says that what do you do in a situation like this, especially when trying to teach the young kids about sportsmanship.

Now the question that I have is this. Why is it unsportsmanlike to continue to play hard and score points? What about that is unsportsmanlike? To me, you play until the final whistle. So can someone please let me know what is it that makes it unsportsmanlike to continue playing hard and pounding in more points?

A New Player Has Entered The Game

So I just found out that a friend of B’s works at T-Mobile. She got me to looking at the Samsung Galaxy S on T-Mobile. It’s an Android phone with a 4” screen. I’ll make a trip to the T-Mobile store and play with it to check it out.

It has 16MB of on board storage, plus it supports up to a 32GB microSD card. Yes, when it comes to cell phones, I’m easily swayed by who has the best feature set. While the HTC EVO has a slightly larger screen, the Sansung Galaxy S and it’s 16GB on board storage, and additional 32GB of storage capacity, make for the better option. T-Mobile here I come.

Vacuum Your Computer

So I learned a valuble lesson today. Vacuum your computer. You don’t have to spend money on cans of compressed air, and, you don’t end up with dust and other crap floating around in the air. We had to do some work on a PC today, still working on it now actually, and the thing was full of dust.

And what do you do when your computer is full of dust? You get a can of compressed air and blow it out. Well, until today, that is what I thought as well. Angie stops me as I am about to start with the can of air, and tells me to get the vacuum and vacuum our the computer. Now, this sounded silly to me, but hey, I’m always willing to try new stuff, you never know what you are going to learn.

The lesson that I learned is that vacuuming out your computer does just as a good, if not a better job than a can of compressed air. And since I have a vacuum cleaner at home, no more buying cans of compressed air. the one caveat, make sure you have a soft brush head for your vacuum.

Wow….the shit you learn at work.

Leaving The Empire

I was finally able to play with an HTC EVO today. I love this phone. The screen looks amazing. I don’t know how it looks compared to an iPhone 4, but it’s damn sexy. The only issue for me is that the phone only has 1GB of internal storage, but supports an SD card up to 32GB.

At the end of the month, I am leaving The Empire, and joining the Rebel Alliance. I have done some searching, and while a lot of the apps I have on the iPhone 3G are not on the Android Market Place, most of the apps I have on the iPhone I don’t use. While there at the Sprint store I did a few searches and my most used apps are on the Android Market Place.

And, to make it even sweeter, my bill is going to go down by $30 a month. I can see that savings account growing more and more.
