Ari's soccer team advances to the state finals!

By Andrew Pollack on 10/31/2005 at 12:11 PM EDT
My daughter Ari is on a competitive soccer team. She's worked hard to get up to the level of play with these kids. They play thirty minute periods with eleven girls on a side using a full high school varsity field -- and they play rough. Saturday morning they had an 8am make up game from last week's rain cancelled second day of regional finals. When we got out of the car in Fairfield it was 22 degrees Fahrenheit outside. Ice and frost covered the parking lot -- fortunately just frost on the field. Warm up was done in jackets and sweat pants with hats and mittens on.

The girls came through with a victory against a team that beat them badly in the regular season and have moved on to the state finals and a one in four chance at the championship next weekend. Lets hope the snow holds off!

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......

This piece of garbage is supposed to be a bearing. It carries the shaft which drives both stages of the auger. The shaft passes through the bearing (which is what bearings do) after the auger drive pulley as the shaft goes through the back (engine ......
