Another day of mostly mundane activities, with little of terrific interest to write about (or rant about). But I won’t let that stop me from flipping my page.
A few weeks ago, my cellphone fell out of my pocket onto a hard floor, antenna-first, and the case cracked a bit around the antenna. Since then, I guess it’s been shedding plastic So I stopped by the Sprint store to ask what their replacement policy was, and found out that it was very simple and straightforward: I could have any phone in the store and I’d only have to pay the full retail price. If I’d bought the insurance (at $4/month), they’d’ve been willing to replace my phone with the same model for a mere $35 deductable.
I’m going to try to continue using my phone until the antenna falls off. And I think I’ll make sure that my next phone has a replaceable antenna.
Adventures in Print Serving
On the same trip, I stopped at Central Computers to pick up a print server. They had the Netgear PS110 two-port server for $113, and an unknown brand’s one-port server for $99. I’m not sure if I’ll ever need a second port, but I decided to spring for the name brand.
Setting up the server took about five minutes; setting up the software each machine took about as long. And then I was on the air. Not very difficult; not very adventurous; this stuff sometimes actually works!
Behind the Curtain
I didn’t join in the Behind the Curtain project because I didn’t think I’d have any interesting pictures to share — that, and because I’m way behind in editing the pictures I’ve taken in the last few months. But now that I’ve looked at a few of the contributions, I wish I had joined in; I appreciate the glimpses of life from those of you who did share your days.
It must be nice to be an optimist
