Not A Good Sign

Alas, poor iPod! I knew him, Horatio, a fellow of infinite verse and song, of most excellent tone and content. I hath bore him on my back a thousand times or more, and now how abhorr'd in my imagination it is! My gorge rises at it.

Probably all that talk about being replaced, by a new device.

Hi Vivien,

Yeh, I think you may be right. It was working fine the day before yesterday, then kerflooy.

Cheers,

That is one real big problem living in paradise if paradise involves salt at all.

Oh well, I look at my computers up here in the same light -- if I can get 4 years or so out of them then I figure I'm doing pretty good.

Hi Julian,

I think I got about six or seven out of this thing, so we were living on borrowed time anyway most likely. The good thing is - replacement batteries are cheap and the replacement process is easy enough. All I have to do is trust the mail services for delivery. Sometimes it works well, sometimes, it's arrghh!

Cheers,
Dave

You'll just have to sing !?!

Hi Pam,

Now, you know how often that happens... Unless the whole gang was backing me, not a chance.

And, even then, slim to none. Maybe I'll just hum.

Cheers,
Dave

You guys doing ok? Miss your post. Little worried about y'all.

Hi HBW,

Ah, y'know, it's all this damned rain. Almost two straight weeks of the stuff.

Thanks for the concern. Cabin fever is beginning to set in.

I'll get something posted soon. Got some bits and pieces of interest to share. I'd love a day or two of sunshine.

Cheers,
Dave
