I’ll Be on NPR’s Talk of the Nation Tomorrow

The headline says it all! I’ll be on at 3:30 Eastern (please adjust for your own time zones) to talk about Redshirts, and, I assume, other stuff as well. Here’s a link to the show’s Web site, in case you don’t have it already. This should be fun.

The New New Phone

Here it is. It’s a RAZR MAXX, which means that I have a phone which is misspelled twice. Nevertheless, since I had the Galaxy Nexus crap out on me, I decided to give this one a shot, primarily because it has a magnificently large battery which means that I might not actually run out of power during the day, which has been a problem with the Nexus (I did like the Nexus overall, but was not impressed with the battery life). The Nexus was under warranty, which means they are shipping a replacement Nexus to my home, but as it happens I really need a phone while I am in San Diego. So I shelled out the cash for this one. Such is the life of a nerd.

 

My Technological Karma Continues its Downward Slide

My phone died last night. The phone which I’ve had, you know, for not very long at all. Now I must away to a Verizon store and get a new one.

This is my way of saying that for the next few hours at least, contact will be intermittent. Best to send me e-mail. My computer is still working.

FOR NOW.
