    Well, my mistake cost me a few thousand dollars. I need to go drink this 22oz Bud and redo my plans in light of this calamity.

    Enjoy your weekend, folks.
    I made one of those multi-thousand dollar mistakes once. I didn't learn much from it since I eventually re-married.

    Ah, going to see a place and after scheduling an appointment, I'm having second thoughts. It's not the place itself but the rules. Well, I'll find out how this works out later.
    Went to the place but I'm debating it. The owner is willing to take a chance on me because of how I seem. The size is good and it's somewhat equal (as in not too far from either) between work and (future) school. I would have to do workarounds though because of rules, but the price is solid and I will have true privacy (but no overnight guests, which I wouldn't do anyway). Debating it. I need to talk it out with my sibling(s). I told them that I'm looking at the middle of the month or the end.

    Ha, ha. Same answer I was gonna give, except I have yet to make the same mistake a second time around.

    Dang this is tempting. It is refurbished but for $399, not a bad deal. Where was this a few weeks ago?!

    It's only for the 32gb in black though but still. Knowing what I know now, I could have gotten a dbrand and a spigen full screen protector, which would make the bezels appear like they are actually black and that would help me deal with the phone aesthetically.

    So we have three people so far for our open house. Hopefully they're all real buyers.

    Oh no, I went straight from the oven and into the frying pan. The rebound has lasted 22 years and counting.

    My worlds are meeting! One of my favorite non-tech podcasts is talking about the Blackberry KeyOne. I am amused but whoa, didn't expect that at all. One of them want one and is seriously debating it.

    Interesting article by Forbes. If true then it appears Microsoft is going to start treating PCs like mobiles.

    Being a person who works in an industry where upgrading is the last thing the they like to do, this will make W10 even less attractive to large enterprise then it already is..

    So I decided that I just wanted to do this test of running the battery down and it won't die after nearly a day and a half of usage! This is interesting to me. It's finally at 4%.

    Tomorrow is the last full day of my aunt and uncle being here. So much is going on, and I hope not to lose my head.

    I haven't talked about them much because there wasn't anything to say. They were fine with respecting my space and also since they have each other, it works out.

    Wow, that's going to lose a lot of enterprise customers, who are the majority of Microsoft's customers, not consumers. 😞

    What tiring weekend... Still lots more to do though. Could use another month of weekends to be ready for the open house but that's not going to happen.

    We've done a lot hopefully it's enough.

    On top of that the whole thing with moving to France and possibly Paris is mind bending... Sigh.

    Too many things on the mind. I'm hoping next Saturday will sort out the UK. Then just need to sort out France.

    At least there's options!

    Hopefully it will be enough. May possible buyers be serious ones.

    Well that was a busy weekend... I'm sore in more places than I care to count...

    Today was the nicest day of the weekend. Last couple of weeks have been raining.

    Yesterday got drenched taking stuff to the tip.

    What was wrong with it? Judging by your schedule maybe it just had jet lag. 😝

    I don't use ifruit!
    Belongs to the lady of the house.
    BT was problematic.
    Radios were terrible, dropped calls all the time.
    Never delivered VM notifications on time.

    Side by side Pixel and S8 did just fine.

    My devices get jet lagged. Her car gets an oil change every 10 months!
