San Diego Padres – NL West CHAMPS!!!

Don’t give me that co-champion nonsense! The Pads have 13 out of 18 reasons why they’re the CHAMPS!!!

Dodgers vs Padres NLCS = Padres NL CHAMPS!!!
I will admit I was wrong.  The Dodger$ made the playoffs.  Boo!

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I’m found
Was blind, but now I see
‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
My chains are gone
I’ve been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
Unending love, amazing grace
The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, who called me here below
Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine
Here’s what Chris Tomlin wrote in the liner notes:
I was diong some research on John Newton and the writing of the hymm, “Amazing Grace.”  John Newton wrote these lyrics as a poem for a sermon describing what God had done for him; that God had not only saved his soul, but also saved him from slave trading.  That sentence inspired me to write the simple refrain, “my chains are gone…”  I also found it interesting that the familiar last verse, “when we’ve been there ten thousand years,” was not in the original, but added years later by another author.  I have included in this version Newton’s original last verse. -Chris

I used Mozilla Firefox for the first time last night.  It seems pretty quick and simple.  One thing I noticed is it used up about 44 MB of RAM with my start page loaded ( whereas Microsoft Internet Explorer used only about 28 MB of RAM.  I’m going to stick with MSIE for now.  Say all you want about viruses and vulnerability, if you know what you’re doing on the Internet, they aren’t a problem at all!

The video clip in my previous entry was taken from Richard Burns Rally for the PC.  In it, I’m driving a 2005 Subaru Impreza WRC (world rally championship) rally car with Petter Solberg’s 2005 Rally Corsica (France) livery.
You can’t do this on a Mac, Jack!!!

I also wanted to correct an earlier mention of the acronym “WRX”.  Apparently, it stands for “World Rally eXperimental”.  I was wrong in saying it stood for “World Rally Cross”.
Another interpretation of it is as follows bellow (from a Subaru of Japan employee or something like that):
What does WRX stand for? WR stands for “World Rally”, and “X” stands for the mathematical symbol for the unknown, that means its possibility is infinite. Many people also have other ideas what the “X” stands for, but this information comes from FHI/STi (Fuji Heavy Industries/Subaru Tecnica International) and was further confirmed by SOA (Subaru of America).

    firefox rocks.  im never going back to IE.  the vanilla version of firefox is ok, the newest IE can compete with the tab functionality and all … but if you soup it up with extensions, there are endless possibilities.

  3. PresidentKennytheGreat says :

    yeah, firefox can be a memory hog, i just find it to be a smoother ride, and have grown accustomed to using plugins, but yeah, nothing wrong with using IE, even if you do use firefox, you have to be aware it has its own vunerabilities as well.

  7. gunnerman says :

    actually they’re co-champs with the Dodgers just that San Diego goes ahead to the better series since they had a better record against the dodgers. i’ve been told

    ucla/cal game is november 4th. i have tickets for the reserved section D, row 46. currently posted on stubhub but i will sell them to you at cost if you would like. i don’t know how the home crowd would take to you wearing red, though. they’re tamer than the student section but you’re not gonna get any love from visiting or home team. =) also, when they ran out of the tunnel everyone watching the game was taken aback … they were WERE initially hideous but they did grow on me as the game went on (perhaps because they played well). it was a rather odd color of yellow.

  15. udonoogen says :

    hi loren.  i have 4 tickets.  do you have 3 friends that would like to go?  my housemate is also interested but he’s can’t confirm with me until closer to the game … so you have priority if you have the $.  if you don’t have 3 other interested parties … i have one friend up north that will go if i go and i’ll take my housemate (sans his coworkers) … and i’ll go to the game with you.  i take no responsibility if you wear your usc colors though.  cheers.
