December 21, 2011 — a day that will live in infamy. Contrary to the opinion of some, I am not a grump.  I chat with people while waiting in line.  I talk to the clerks and find something complimentary to say.  I worked in retail and know that a kind word can help a day.   Today?  Stay out of my way.  I am ready to open a window and start shouting what I will no longer take.

Probably goes for this blog too in some quarters.  But, this morning, I am flummoxed.   And friends, it takes quite a bit to get me fully flummoxed.  It hasn’t really happened that often in my 71 years.  I have been nonplussed any number of times but flummoxed is near nuclear.  There is a new government project that has accomplished the flummoxing.  Throwing a few academics in the mix took it up that exponential quantity to truly flummox.

I did something stupid — go ahead, say it. And, that got the attention of FullTilt support which locked my account. They demanded that I identify myself with a copy of my driver’s license and a utility bill or such. Simple right? Dream on! Read more…

Well, we do have Rini in an exotic local.   Then Doc needs to visit his sensei and practice his wax on – wax off technique to talk she who must be obeyed into his dream wheels.  Otis is even showing signs; thinks his hiking is being curtailed by hanky-panky.  Well, this blog ain't about any of that.

No, this isn't about my cowardice at the tables.  It is about the future of online poker.  If you read Bill Rini as I asked in the last blog, you came across his look at the future.  Not often I get to use puissant but here it comes.  Bill's older post was a puissant look at the future of online poker.
