I had to work late, and temperatures are still well below zero, so my brain is either fried or frozen. I can’t wait for a change of weather. Don’t expect much tonight.
The entries for Axe’s first shows are now closed. I understand how championship points work, but I’ve never had to worry about them for a dog of my own before. If I correctly read the entry count and the points schedule for the right region, if all the entered dogs show up, he could get 2 points each day if he wins the classes, and 3 if by some stroke of luck he wins Best of Breed, Best of Opposite or Best of Winners. Three points would be a major, which would be more than wonderful if he could get one his first time out. Oh, yes. He could also get nothing. I am trying not to worry about it.
I spent a bit of time today with some new BlackBerry applications which look really good so far.
SocialScope is in alpha testing now and allows you to manage your Twitter feed and your Facebook status updates. The Facebook functionality is very minimal right now, but it truly shines as a Twitter client. Take a look at the review posted on Crackberry.com. SocialScope is really working hard and quickly on improvements. An update done earlier tonight added manual refresh, notifications, retweet and follow/unfollow to the features mentioned in the review. Great customer service/support, too – if you contact them on Twitter you will get very speedy responses to questions and problems.
Bitstream’s Bolt J2ME browser is in beta. I didn’t find it quite as speedy as advertised but it does a great job of rendering PC-style pages on the BlackBerry. Take a look at the review for more information.
I’m going to go and be a good alpha/beta tester now. OK, fine. Yes. That does mean I’m going to go play with my BlackBerry now. Good night, all!
