Just for the record…

I just won an online 18 player tournament.  $7.20 in the bank.  Woo yeah!  Big time baby! (See, I don’t always lose.) Update @ 00:12: And again.  That’s $14.40, in case you couldn’t work that one out for yourself. 😉

Approximately exactly that

Like it or loathe it, Wikipedia is here to stay.  Sure, there are inaccuracies, but it’s a rich source of mostly-correct information on almost anything you could possibly think of.  Scrap that.  It’s probably a rich source of mostly-correct information on anything you could think of.  More than that, though, it’s probably a rich source
