I read over at Lifehacker that disabling Google Talk within Gmail significantly speeds it up. Since I do all my chatting with gaim (now Pidgin) anyway, I went ahead and did that. I did like the sound it the Gmail-embedded Talk made when I got a message, though. A quick search found them: Google Talk Sounds. Now, I’ve got gaim set up to play the same sound whenever I get a new conversation-starting message. It’s gtalk1.wav inside the zip file. (0)

Back on Track

I seem to be getting back to where I should be bowling. It’s about time, I’ve been in a bit of a slump for a while. Besides the 691 series the day after I got back from Reno, my scores haven’t been great. A few good games here and there, but very inconsistent and my series scores not where I want them to be.


61X   X   X   X   X   8/X   8/XX8
X   X   X   9/X   X   X   X   9/8/8
72X   X   9/9/819-8/X   XXX
Series: 670   Average: 223.3

Last night:

8/X   X   X   9/9/9/9/7-X8/
X   X   X   X   62X   818/X   8/X
81X   X   X   X   X   X   7/X   X7/
X   X   X   X   X   81X   9/X   8/8
Series: 867   Average: 216.8

I think more important than the scores this week, though, is the fact I feel like I actually know what I’m doing again. That might just be the beer.

It’s my birthday today. I’m now 28. Tonight, I’m going out to dinner with my parents… which really isn’t any different than any other night they’re here, but will be nice.
