Waiting By The Phone

I love the library

Monday, September 28th, 2009

I’m trying to read all the tom swift jr books, but the last one, Cosmotron Express, goes for $80-$150 on ebay.

Enter the SPL, who thanx to the magic of interlibrary loan, found me a perfectly readable copy.

Who Are The Beatles?

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

I see them pushing this new band, “the beatles” all over the place. It’s on constant revolution at Starbucks, like they were the next boy band you’d never heard of, and never would if not for the advertising.

The beatles need this kind of hard sell, really?

Is It Love or con-Flu-sion

Bleeding Gums – I’m Glad I Can Finally Throw That CD Away

Seems OK.

High diving into a shot glass

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

Sometimes, it seems like I’m trying to jump off a 20m platform, and into a shot glass.

I probably won’t hit the target, and even if I did, it’d still be a big mess.

I Will Lead You To The Cliff Of Your Choice

I slag wired magazine somewhere/when, and now I’m one of the “leaders of the open source movement”.


Grrrr HTC G1 battery woes

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Well under the 1 year mark, and my G1 battery has gone kapput. You can try to call me, and I might be near an outlet and plugged in, but don’t count on it.

woo hoo technology =p

UPDATE:  Bought a new, OEM, battery at the tmobile store (way overpriced, but I wanted my phone to be working again now, silly me), and the phone refuses to charge it too,  so that was a big waste of time.

UPDATE2:  Just noticed, the user manual doesn’t mention the orange LED, only the green and red.  Strange.

UPDATE3:  t-mobile customer service rocks.  they are 2-daying me a replacement phone, no major grief, and refunded the new battery that didn’t help.  HTC, on the other hand, makes a crap phone it seems.

UPDATE4: so, replacement phone came, and it won’t charge the old battery now…sigh.

Don’t Piss Off Carrie

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

I think Carrie Fisher might be a little pissed today.
