3. June, 2009 - Technology woes

I’ve been fighting with technology lately, it seems. My GPS suddenly stopped working a couple weekends ago. I wrote a bunch of code yesterday, then trimmed it back to two lines of new code, and somehow managed to crash in those two lines taken straight from some example code. And yesterday evening, I got a phone call from someone, and heard the corded phone in the basement ringing, but neither of my cordless phones rang or would pick up (and didn’t leave a message). So I figured it was time to plug in the beauty shown there on the right.

But hey, in general things are going okay. The Saints are back for a home stand this weekend. The weather’s mostly been pleasant (though we could sure use some rain). The summer’s shaping up to be okay, as far as I can tell. Now if I could just figure out how to get my GPS fixed… It’s under warranty, but I don’t have the original packaging and bought it from amazon - then again, it’s been discontinued and is now selling for less than half what I paid for it last July, so it’ll probably just be easier to buy a new one.
