I tried to post something about the Travelers Championship, but I couldn't bring myself to move on from the U.S. Open. So instead let me post this picture from Brian, a reader who judging by all the chemicals in the background of the picture, works in an underground laboratory somewhere. He actually works for "a company that makes products for biopharm labs." Not really sure what that means, but if I suddenly disappear, remember this post.
On Monday Brian said his computer was the only one that could get the feed from USOPEN.COM, so he became the go-to guy for updates on the Tiger/Rocco match. After a while, he just started posting the hole by hole scores on this whiteboard in his cube so he wouldn't have to recap all the action every time somebody new came up.
In other cube news, my friend Mike forwarded me what he deemed "the nerdiest Tiger story this week":
"Many US and Canadian ISPs thought they were under a massive denial of service attack yesterday — traffic spiked by hundreds of gigabits across North America. Turns out that the traffic was due to live streaming of the U.S. Open. and Tiger Woods' nail-biting victory."
