I was worried last night when the rain started to come down, but it let up and I was able to ride “Mine” our electric scooter in to the office again today. I’ve been really enjoying getting to ride in this past week. The weather has been beautiful. Finally, it is spring. Thanks go to Electric Ave Scooters for bringing this EMax scooter to the Austin market! The silver eMax looks right at home in the motorcycle parking area at UT.
Just a quick note that I’m REALLY liking the integration between smugmug and Adobe Lightroom 3. You can see my smugmug stream at:
The only thing I’m looking for is the ability to sync photo metadata back from smugmug (since it offers the ability to allow others to tag, caption, etc)
For the first time in a long time I broke down and accepted the protection plan that big box offered me when I was checking out. You know, “just pay an extra $15 and you will be able to exchange the thing you are buying at any time for any reason…” I’ve always viewed these things as something that earns them extra cash while “covering” you with additional warranty service that is hard to use and inadequate when you do.
Well, I have to say … it actually seems to have been worth it on these $70 headphones I bought. I thought to myself, “I always mangle my headphones.. what the hell, why not?!”
I bought the coverage and, so far, I’ve received 3 “free” new pairs of headphones to replace the ones that failed on me. All I’ve had to pay is a few minutes in line at the Service Counter. They’ve been pleasant and efficient and soon after walking in, I’ve been told to go select a new pair from the headphone display. This last time, it is clear the manufacturer has redesigned the piece that has been failing… so maybe this set will last a bit longer. [grin]
So far… a good bet.
Really. We have no idea when the next iPhone product will be announced. Apple isn’t at all consistent about when it announces such things. June 2011 you say? Never would have guessed.
So – it has been a long while since I did any posting on a personal blog. Time to get back to hosting what I say in a place where I “own” it.
