Wednesday Weirdness #317

I spoke with a customer service agent today who was very helpful. They understood exactly what my issue was and why the standard repair kit was not suitable for my situation. That shouldn’t be noteworthy; but, for me, is a rare experience. Especially when the resolution requires a full replacement of the affected item.

Wednesday Weirdness #245

We had a ferocious thunderstorm with high winds and hail and our power did not go out. For most people that would not be unusual. But, for us, it’s very rare to not lose power whenever there are high winds. Getting a backup generator; however, is still on the to-do list.

Monday Monologue #202

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • It took a month; but, The Wife finally got her watch back from the with a new battery and updated pressure certification. It’s nice having a highly water resistant watches; but replacing the batteries is a nuisance.
  • I forgot to charge my phone last night yet, unlike my old phone, the battery was not totally run down when I woke up this morning. It’s great having a device with a good battery and, of course, all the latest features.
  • After days of searching for a solution, I finally solved my problem with the latest Windows 10 update. The way “Modern Apps” including some of the built-in setup configuration tools crash or hang without any error messages is frustrating and makes trouble shooting extremely difficult.
  • We’ve got the closing date for our pool scheduled. I can’t believe we’re already planning for the end of the summer. The summer solstice and the long days that accompany it don’t seem that long ago.
