Sad State of Affairs
There are two kinds of people, those who have lost important data to a computer failure, and those who will. Personally I use Carbonite, but there are lots of good products out there. A local backup is insufficient, I think. A bad power surge could take out your entire system ...
Kobayashi Maru
Cool story, but there are some corrections you need to make.

Out of 15 pairs, none were in spades. Top score was -480, so -500 would have been a great board. One pair was -480 for a top, -750 (6 pairs) was 71%, -980 (3 pairs) was 43% and -1210 (5 pairs) was 14%.
Tales from the Attic: A Well Played Hand!
I guess he judged that LHO would not lead jack from KJT on this auction.
