Fifty Objective Pickup

Fifty Objective Pickup

Hey Team,

Ever play fifty-two card pickup? You know how there’s always that clump of cards in the middle that are easy to grab but then you spend the next twenty minutes looking for the last few? Yeah. It’s like that…but with two less cards.

I’m a little frustrated this week. I have to be in New York on the 23rd and that’s too soon to bail to another piece of the country but I don’t want to just sit around WAITING for the 23rd to come.

In the plus column the Boston Marathon is this weekend so I might stick around and check that out.

Okay, less talk of frustration more focus on the new and exciting.

There’s an Amtrekker Twitter account now! If you have one too the URL is:

And if you DON’T have an account you still get to see the updates right here on the site! It’s that new box over on the right hand side of the homepage that says, appropriately enough, “Twitter Updates.”

So what IS Twitter? Good question…I’m not sure how to describe it. It’s kind of web 2.0ish in that it’s a social application but it’s also kind of like blogging 140 characters at a time. So now I get to text message Twitter to make sure everyone knows what’s going on if I don’t have the time to write a full update! (Which has been getting progressively tougher as I keep biting off more than I can chew. Luckily, I’m kind of awesome.)

One more quick thing. I’ve had two people tell me that there are some issues with that right hand column on the homepage. It looks fine on my browser but if it doesn’t look right to you do me a HUGE favor and let me know somehow. And please include which browser you’re using in the message!

Thanks, Team!

I’m done.


You could always do ANOTHER HUGE favor if you felt like it…

Don’t let me stop you.
