Misc crap about today

Interesting day.
Got some stuff done. I decided to open a savings account, going to do that tomorrow (bank holiday today) and place $250 in it. That's the start of my savings again, haven't had savings for about 2 years now, and I'm tired of the uncertainty that no savings brings.

Got ladymace registered with mobile AIM on her phone. She uses eCallPlus.com for her PCS, they resell and rebrand AT&T (yea, TDMA PCS sucks my balls, but it's the cheapest, best digital prepaid deal I could find around) PCS, but give longer expirations and free 2 way text messaging. AT&T claims on their site that she can't register for mobile AIM, but I found a way around that and got it done anyway. Works fine :-)

Got a pZone again from Pizza Hut (and drank mountain dew as well nickfarr.. ;-) ) they are the shit.

Decided to forgo a bed for a while, I'm doing fine without one, and I'd rather have the money in savings. I used my deposit to buy the dresser I wanted so I have somewhere to put my clean clothes. w00t.

Got a Nokia 5165 on eBay. Sniped the bid in the last 15 seconds. The other two people bidding must have been pissed :-) I'm going to get eCallPlus service on the phone, for the free 2 way SMS (and Mobile AIM), and maybe see if the reception is better than my work phone. If it is I'm asking for a 5165 instead of this 8260 that barely ever gets useable signal :-)

Anyway, the day's not over yet, but it shows signs of being interesting. I might watch another DVD today, the 2.1 channel speakers I got for the front channels of my SB live 5.1 kick total ass. :-)

I'm such a consumer today. :-/

You told me to eat at tacobell (owned by Tricon Global) which is part of the same company as Pizza Hut, and also told me to drink a Pepsi, and Mountain Dew is a product of Pepsico, Inc that I find more palatable. ;-)

In other words, I'm just giving you shit. :-)

Since I've never had to switch carriers on a cell phone before, how much of a pain in the ass is it to take an existing phone (same one that you just picked up) and pic it to a pick-up-&-go carrier?

Re:
There's a carrier lock that generally must be bypassed. Since this situation was kinda like a non-facilities based CLEC reselling AT&T PCS dialtone, my old AT&T prepaid fone works.

On the AMPS analog network, it's absolutely simple, but many of the digital phones are carrier locked (note, this can be bypassed usually, search the net for the model of the phone and "carrier lock")

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Someday you may find yourself looking for a house to buy.
