Out of the Blue

Happy birthday to me, as today marks the completion of another orbit around good old Sol. To follow up about my phone, I had a normal charge cycle yesterday, so not needing to replace it can be my present from the universe. That's a double-edged gift, as it comes with the reminder that my phone "problem" was me just not paying enough attention to its battery level, perhaps due to my advancing years. The universe can be a dick like that sometimes. But my non-problem led to a few recommendations for apps to help manage a phone's charging, so there's another gift. Thanks to all who offered help. Anyway, as I've mentioned in the past, I like my birthdays quiet. This being Thanksgiving week in the U.S. will help with that. Another gift! Quite the haul this year.

Neither do I, simply because if I want to party I don't care if it is my birthday or not.

Happy Birthday Blue!

Yeah, I was recently looking through Red-Eye LAN party photos I took from 22+ years ago. Good times. The mandatory all-up 64 player Quake matches were memorable.

Disney: As a stock holder, and an occasional customer of the parks, I am actually welcoming Iger's return. I have had issues with the way Iger ran the company and some of his dumber decisions over the years, but I will say that Iger actually cares about the brand. Chapek flat out doesn't care about the brand, and the quality of the parks have been suffering through his rather inept cost cutting measures.

Glad you got the phone working again. Hopefully that was the fix.
