This is a quick one. I’m tired, my brain is fried, and I just want to squeak something in for the day. Apologies; I’ll be back on track tomorrow. Have a great Friday night, everyone!
I discuss the sad news of PG Holyfield’s passing, the general idea of friends and tribes of like-minded folks, and my feelings towards those I care for. A bit of a sappy episode.
My Nexus 5 analysis was upstaged again by events. I decided to buy and check out a Chromecast today, and the sad state of my “broadband” Internet connections (thanks Comcast!) prompted me to go on a bit of a rant about the current state of net connectivity. I got a little cranky.
On a more somber note, I express my sadness at the news of PG Holyfield’s serious medical condition. It’s heartbreaking, and I strongly encourage folks to consider donating to Patrick and his family at the GoFundMe URL in the show notes.
I started out planning to discuss the Nexus 5, then made a detour into my service provider Ting, and my history with smartphones in general. Because, you know…I figured you all needed to hear about that. LOL
A quiet Sunday, but nothing wrong with that. Completed my dailies in WoW, cleaned house, and ran some errands…what else can I say! Another week about to start…
Quiet night…I’m getting ready for an early day of Saturday work tomorrow. But hey, it’ll all work out!! Really enjoying the Dog Days of Podcasting so far!
So far, so good… we’ve got two in the can now. I’ve really been enjoying all the DDOP podcasts that I’m trying to catch up on now, and I’m also working on scrobbling all my podcast listening to a new (podcast-only) last.fm account. At least that’s the idea…not quite happening yet. Time to tweak the fiddly bits.
Annnddd…I’m back!! So instead of the Dog Days of Podcasting, I’m here for more of the Dog Days of the Dog Days! Ah well, better late than never. Nothing much going on today other than checking in; I’ll try to get more done tomorrow. Happy Dog Days, everyone!
