Note: impending song of woe.
My cellphone died. My printer (an HP 3100 laser jet that's older than your kindergartner) is wobbling down the road to oblivion. My laptop is still blinky and on its way back to the HP Mothership for repair. Oh, and my favorite watch stopped.
Now, for the good stuff (there is good stuff). Promise.
My new cellphone is on the way (a Samsung u740) and I've figured out which aircard and service plan I'm signing up for. My back-up systems, though a right pain, worked perfectly.
