Carla and the wife arrived earlier than I expected. We did indeed order out (China Fun) then Garrett and I cracked open GT4 while the girls smoked cigars on the back patio. They had started painting the bedroom, and were waiting for the first coat to dry.

The intro to GT4 was incredible. I can't wait to play the 'game' outside of Arcade Mode. However, as my son and I were going head-to-head, that's all I've played so far. Still, I'm very impressed. Head and shoulders above GT & GT2. I settled on an oval track to help curb my sons frustration, and to help him learn how to drive in a straight line (not necessary for Vigilante V8 for example). My first race was in a silver 1969 Dodge Charger. The replay of that race brought a tear to my eye...seeing that awesome car glide around the track. After about a dozen or so different cars, I gave my son the advantage by choosing a circa 1970 19-horsepower Mitsubishi. He nearly lapped me. Its cool to play video games with your son.

At 2130 the call came in that the power had been restored at our primary location. As Carla and my wife were back inside painting, I snatched her and we headed out. Facilities showed up and restarted the Liebert unit, and 15 minutes later I powered on our backup server, the only Sun Microsystems in the building.

I think I'm going to bed now.
