Major outages continue on our Conxion LAN -- though I suspect the problems are still with PacBell, not Conxion.

Update 5:00 p.m.: Mariners win 3-2. Young pitcher Ryan Anderson was amazing. Sheila will have pictures of the game, once they're developed, including a shot of A-Rod as he's about to take his home run swing in the first inning.

I'm off to the ball game -- Mariners vs. Phillies. The Phillie Phanatic will be there. It's like a dream come true!

Phanatic to Blast-off for Mars to Save Opening Day.

The Seattle Times wrote on Friday: "You might not want to party too late tomorrow night; the weekend is an hour shorter than usual." Of course, I ended up completely disregarding this advice. I'm so glad it's Daylight Savings Time -- but I always hate missing that hour of sleep. Oh well, a small price to pay.
