Del Potro Massacre

I already checked the score this morning but I caught a good portion of the taped broadcast of the Federer v. Del Potro match and it was just brutal. I mean absolutely brutal. I even saw some people in the audience shaking their heads when they did one of those camera pans. I thought Del Potro would put up a good fight. Double bagel? Wow. I feel kind of bad for Del Potro. At one point, Fed even struck the ball over the net with a header (after the play was over) as if to say he might as well be playing without a racket.

It seems the fashionable thing to do these days is to just ask for a government bailout when times get tough.

Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP

I’m writing this from a spanking new Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP LCD monitor. This thing is a little bigger than I thought, I actually have to turn my head a little to look at the left and right sides. It definitely improves my workflow immensely when I’m using Photoshop and Dreamweaver. There’s just so much more space on the screen to work with. Not to mention I have some 1080p videos that look absolutely gorgeous on this thing.
