When I got home, my phone had a stroke. It kept rebooting and rebooting and rebooting. After trying a couple of hard core tricks like cleaning out the system cache, I finally hit factory reset. And now it says erasing... it's been erasing... for about 30 minutes now.
Fortunately, I have a very excellent backup phone. But, I'd really like to have my first one back.
It's kind of a digital karmic balance to the new computer coming today. I remember well, the new computers of old. I'd set aside a day to get it set up. Even a laptop. It took hours to remove all the OEM bloatware and then apply all the updates and then even more hours to download and install all my stuff.
The new computer coming today is a chromebook that will take less than 5 minutes to set up completely. And 3 of those minutes will be finding a place to store the box it comes in!
So today looks like it will be phone fiddling interspersed with hitting refresh on the FedEx tracking page.
But, I won't forget my 20 minutes of walking. Today will likely be a trip to the Japanese grocery to get some more of those delicious almond crisp cookies. It also looks like it will be a dry walk and, hopefully, sun-free. I heard on the radio this morning that yesterday was the wettest day here in Seattle in 6 years.
