I think this would be best illustrated by a screencast. Anyone interested in vim screencasts? Should I take the time to do some vim screencasts? Let me know.

BDO darts world championship over

The 2009 BDO Lakeside World Professional Championship, a one week darts competition, ended today, with the title going to Ted Hankey after a great and dramatic final, decided in the final set.
Tony O'Shea lost his 4th final of the year, sad for him :(

Before you laugh that I'm looking darts competition on television, did you ever watch a match? Everyone I've talked about it laughed at me first, but got caught when watching. I've started looking at it during my exams as univ, and try to follow the championship every year. I dont watch other competitions, so I can't comment on them, but the BDO world championship at the Lakeside is something you should give a try, usually on BBC2 around this time of the year. That will be for 2010 though!
