about me

I'm a former professor of computer science; now I work at FanDuel trying to make sure that sports fans can squeeze every last little bit of excitement out of Sunday Night Football without a bunch of web servers catching on fire.  Or something like that.

Sometimes I build websites. I built the one you're looking at now.  If you find any bugs, I'm pretty sure they're Steve's fault.

Slow response time

Balicki-Zmudzinski May Play Freely in EBL!
Some people's joy will decrease, some people's joy will increase. The question isn't whrther an electronic playing environment is good for YOU, itwhether itsit's good for THE GAME. Once people start being able to see past "I don't like this personally THEREFORE it is a ...
Another question about alerting when there's no agreement

Why are men more successful at bridge than women?
I learned a new, useful word today! Thanks Marty :)
Help Wanted CEO ad for the ACBL
The post I replied to said that we should drop "25" from the ad because someone might be scared off from applying, as if there might actually be a viable candidate that WOULD interview AND take the job if we just somehow hide the size of the board from them ...
Help Wanted CEO ad for the ACBL
Why, because you think the league might somehow dupe a candidate into thinking that the board is smaller than it is? Candidate: Okay, I'll take the job. ACBL: SURPRISE, SUCKER! The board is huge! Candidate: WHAT? Oh man, how could I have missed this? This always happens to me!

Please focus all the energy that stems from your persecution complex towards things that are ...
Michael Seamon (1960-2017)
This is a memorial thread. Nonsense about the site or why it is or isn't appropriate to allow suspended users to have a backdoor to post content do not belong here. There's an entire forum for that. Enough. I'm going to suspend anyone else who thinks it ...
Michael Seamon (1960-2017)
One of my favorite people I've met at bridge. Goodbye friend.
Selecting the Opening Lead
There are a great many things about bridge winners that could be better on mobile :). At least you can change your vote if you fat finger the 7 on lead.
