I had stared this article this morning when we were supposed to get actual snow, but I guess this will be good for my New England friends/family/readers.

Zynga, Activision Blizzard sued over patent | The Digital Home – CNET News


Isn’t this interesting.  I wonder how far it’s going to go.  My question is if Walker Digital patented the the Database driven online distributed tournament system” back in 2002, why in the world did they wait until 2010 to file suit.  It’s not like WoW wasn’t making a ton of cash for Blizzard 2 or 3 years ago.

That’s right folks, more winter weather is on the way.  I thought that we were going to be able to dodge the snow bullet this week, but alas, the weather service has changed their minds.  Apparently no one is safe from this one either.  At first, the winter storm warning was for the counties north of us, but it looks like today at noon, the weather models reached a tipping point. I didn’t know storms could explode, but I guess we’ll see.

So, have you had enough yet?  If not, why? I think this week we’re going to have a Top 3 Tuesday…

More Snow


Update:
Well, it looks like we are thankfully going to miss getting the snow next weekend. I love the snow and all, but this is getting to be a bit much. I’m ready for the kids to go back to school already.


After this season, I think anything under 6 inches of snow is going to be seen as a dusting.  Just as the Blizzard snowpocalypse 2010 winds down, look what we have in store for Valentine’s day.

Jason says I’m crazy and that 3 inches is still going to strand us in the house for three days.  Well, he is right about that.  I was looking at the traffic cameras to see what I-95 is looking like.  In the dark I can’t really tell much.  It seems like the road is clear, cars are at least moving on 95, but I can’t tell how fast they are going and if they are traveling on pavement or just packed now.
