Football Manager 2011 is causing me to need a valium

I recently downloaded Football Manager 2011 from Amazon.com and my saved games are often corrupted and lost causing me to get extremely frustrated. What can I do to prevent this from happening in the future? Also, why is the software so buggy? I have never had seven saved games become corrupted in any game I've had previously.

I see your shotgun and I raise you a zombie creeper.

The girlfriend and I are going to Hawaii in a few weeks and have a 10 hour flight. I'm looking for a fun, nerdy card game to bring with us to kill some of that time, something that would be fun for two people. We both like the Fluxx variants, but they tend to spread out which seems inconvenient for the plane. Also probably things that require shouting or slapping (a la Spoons) would be bad. Bonus points if it's readily available at The Compleat Strategist in NYC.

Should I steam or let this duck rest first?

Should I steam or let this duck rest first? For game birds, I've usually pricked the skin, quick-poached it, then let it sit uncovered overnight to crisp up the skin before I roast it. However, I've been using a new recipe for duck that calls for steaming it before you roast it (a wonderful recipe, btw). So the question is: should I let it sit overnight in the fridge before I steam it or after I steam it?

What game is this and what are the rules?

When I was in high school my friends would play this game that involved the following: take a wooden broom; saw off the head; saw the remaining stick into two pieces, one long and one short (about 4"); whittle the short end into a spike. Then to play the "game" you would dig a small hole into the ground and position the sharp end of the stake over it, hit the tip with the longer piece of the broom and whack it on the way up.

Where can I play Clue online or on iOS?

I'd like to play the board game Clue either through a web browser or an iPad/iPhone app. Ideally I could play against a friend or friends where we sign in/sign up and AI fills in as the other players as needed. If the playing-against-friends part isn't possible, then playing against random people online or AI would be fine. I've seen a Clue game on the App Store, but it's "Clue" in name only, not the actual board game. Maybe there's a Clue ripoff somewhere that follows the same room/weapon/character whodunit format? Any recommendations? Thanks in advance.
