Tomas Vokoun and Alexander Semin are gone from Brand Thunder’s Washington Capitals browser theme, but the new one could use a tweak.
While writing my post Bryce Harper in 2013 Home Run Derby; Harmon Killebrew vs. Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays in the 1960 TV version (videos of Killer vs. Mickey & Willie!) I noticed that the Home Run Derby countdown clock has a little issue:
I took a screenshot with my system clock beside it. The Derby [...]
Here is a good example of why you should read D.C. Baseball History every day:

UPDATE 08.05.2011: It appears this has been corrected. Sorry I didn’t get the screencaps…
Google Maps is imperfect. For example, for last year all of US 30 had an extra label – Quebec Route 366 (Map of the Week). Closer to home, I noticed another transcontinental route had a labeling problem while looking for local directions:
Remember when Ted Leonsis was really excited about the Washington Capitals browser theme about 5 years ago? The Washington Nationals have caught up and now offer a browser theme as well.
Like all BrandThunder browser themes, there is a toolbar with links to the team and league sites, tickets, social media, headlines, etc. There doesn’t seem [...]
Yesterday, the database for this blog got corrupted. The hosting provider was able to get the database restored for the most part, but several posts from the last several days and a few hundred from summer 2004 were lost as were my drafts. A great post for tomorrow was blown away and I don’t know [...]
