    Tfw the women's national team scores more goals in one match than the men's team has in the past 9 years.

    So. I was so bored today I logged into Xbox.com and kinda wandered through my account and remembered about the Microsoft Rewards program. I wasn't expecting much, the last time I got anything through it I had enough points for a $5 Xbox giftcard, so I figured I probably had enough for another and might as well go redeem it.... I WAS WRONG.

    I log into my Rewards account to find my balance sitting at a pretty 157,000 points.. wha.... in the two years since I last checked how in the hell have I earned ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY-SEVEN THOUSAND POINTS?! My next thought was, it probably gives you a ton of points but everything is probably super overpriced and I'll probably still only get a $5 Xbox card. Nope. Logging out today I now have $135 credited to my Xbox account, and a full year Xbox membership.. Oh by the way, Xbox has a deal during E3 for their new Game Pass Ultimate, which is a Xbox Live and Game Pass combo, $1 for your first month and it will give you Game Pass for however long you have left on your membership... So I now also have Xbox Game Pass for one year.. for one dollar.

    I'm still shocked and believe the only logical way for a giant corporation like Microsoft to have a Rewards program where you don't completely get screwed over is there must've been some sort of glitch. So I do suggest to anyone that has an Xbox account to check their Microsoft Rewards because you may just get a similarly shocking result. But you may not.

    Today was a good day.

    Yeah the rewards system is no joke. I use bing to search for images and do their daily point awards and it easily stacks up. It pretty much pays for my xbox live and extra xbox $$$ for DLC in games pretty much.

    I use two accounts. One for saving up for gift cards, and the other for Game Pass and Gold. I was recently able to extend my gold for another year.

    Well one thing I learned from an incident with the neighbor and his "buddy" is to record everything because when it comes to showing up for Court you sure as hell can't count on people as witnesses. Any good recommendations on security cameras? Going to need a battery operated one, unfortunately Apt. management won't allow me to wire one up outside so I'm stuck with a battery operated one for now.

    My NASCAR themed dreams continue. Last night I dreamed that NASCAR announced that the Gen-7 would look exactly like the Gen-4 cars and the engines would have 915 hp and that for the rest of 2019 and all of 2020, they would go to 915 hp and cut off half of the spoiler. Also no more aero/drag ducts and no more tapered spacer. Don't remember anything about stages or the playoffs being announced.

    I had a dream a few years ago that Phoenix added the grass back on the dogleg, but put a giant Spa-esque sausage kerb on it. Junior took the lead on a restart with two to go, hit the kerb, and tipped over in front of the entire field.

    Doug Boles is doing some ads on Facebook for all the cool seats at IMS to get people to renew their seats for the 500. I pass them and without fail keep thinking he's Stephen Colbert.

    Might anyone have any insight on how to transfer fonts from one computer to another? Can I just do a simple drag and drop, or would I have to reinstall all of them one by one?

    I'm pretty sure you can copy your entire fonts folder and drop it into the new PC. Windows will install them automatically IIRC

    When it comes to sim racing I have noticed America seems to get the shaft quite often. The only sim that covers American racing disciplines is iRacing, as they are the only one with Trophy Trucks, NASCAR, Indycar , Dirt Ovals, etc. and iRacing is pretty expensive for those of us who have no interest in hardcore online racing. Every sim has GT3 cars, Australia has multiple V8 Supercars mods, almost every European series under the sun can be found in just about any sim, while for American racing we have iRacing, NR2003(still great, but starting to really showing its age), and a bunch of scattered small mod groups with sparse support for NASCAR, Indianapolis is in multiple sims but that's about it for Indy-cars, and dirt cars with subpar AI and games as old as NR2003 for dirt racing, and iRacing is the only sim aside from automobilista to have trophy trucks. I REALLY Hope iRacing's AI is solid, because RN they are the only beacon of hope for American Motorsports sim racing enthusiasts.

    A few thoughts:

    Remember how I posted a couple months ago that my cousin was in a food truck competition? It was probably obvious, but she's competing in this season of the Great Food Truck Race on the Food Network. She's on the Brunch Babes team.

    Secondly, bought my tickets to the Sonoma race weekend. Will be the first time I attended a race that is not Fontana. Got a ticket package that will get me into the driver's meeting, which should be really cool. Got tickets for high up in Turn 2. Figured that's a high point on the track and I'll be able to see a decent amount. I looked at some videos taken from that point of the IndyCars, and that seemed to be the case.

    I typically sit up in turn 2 at Sonoma and it's pretty good. The main problem though is when I saw Indycar there, you could barely see the carousel. Down at the esses may be better if you wanna see that section but overall it's probably one of the better places to see Sonoma from

    The esses were my preferred seats, but they didn't sell the package over there. Only Turn 2, Turn 7, and the main grandstands. The package also includes a fanvision, so I'll be able to watch anything I can't see.

    With GA tickets on Saturday, you can sit anywhere. So I might sit in the esses for that.
