I tried to re-activate our prepaid phone, but Cingular no longer supports TDMA phones, which is an older standard, but I hadn't realized that GSM had taken over that much. Our cell phone that we use regularly is also TDMA, but the sales guy said that it should last a while, as long as we don't cancel the plan.

It costs $30 for a new phone, and $15 for the minutes, and he has to ship it, the local offices only have $80 phones, so it isn't worth anything for this weekend's bike trips.

We get a phone call every day between 8:55 and 9:00AM. They are always hangups, but today, I finally answered quick enough to actually get a person. It was the American Center for Law and Justice, and they refused to remove my phone number from their list.

I emailed jsekulow@aclj.org directly, I don't suppose he actually reads his own mail, but maybe he will do something about it.

Their member services say I am not on their lists, so their telemarketers must be calling, as if it makes any difference to me whether they are paying a person in the same building as them to call me, or if they hired an outside firm to call me.

I need to look up the number to the FCC - they fined MCI $400 (or maybe more - I got a check for $400) for bothering me in college.

I am planning on a couple bike trips in the next couple days, and figured I would write them down, one, in case I ever want to do them again, I will be able to find the route easier, and two, perhaps others will follow in my tire tracks. (More)

I was listening to "One More Day" and thought I would write a bit about him and his songs.
I first heard David when he came to CMU, I think in 1996, shortly after being given a couple months to live by his doctor due a large tumor. The only song I remember from his first visit to Carnegie Mellon was, "If I Had Another", which he sang slightly differently live than recorded, but basically it is the same song. (More)

I was updating my list of quotes that I have given people, and I noticed that I have hit the $500/month mark for revenue (not profit), seems like a significant number!

It has been fun, though sometimes too much work - hopefully someday will able to just work on Lime Daley stuff, rather than a full-time job as well.

Zoo

We went to the zoo on Wednesday with the Tomans and Venables. It was a lot of fun. (More)

Noah had an appointment at six weeks, kind of both his one month and two month appointments, because of scheduling. He is 13 lb, 13 oz, 23.5 in. Not as fast to gain as Jonathan, but still good and healthy. My suspicion is that he won't be as fat as Jonathan was since Jonathan is now drinking the extra milk. (By the way, Jonathan's weight has stayed the same despite having that extra milk. He has reduced his solid food calories to compensate.) (More)

Jonathan has gradually corrected his mispronunciation of words as he gets older. The two remaining sounds he has trouble with are hard "G" and "C/K." Around last week, he said "car" correctly. When he thinks about it, he can do it, and he likes to over-emphasise the ccckkk. He still says "tar" when he isn't thinking about it. (More)

Bill linked to a new (at least to me) personality profile thingy. I haven't done the Meyers-Briggs test in a while, but I have consistently scored ESFP, and I generally like that assessment. One version of the test had a fairly long paragraph describing ESFP's, and it fit exactly. (I always remember that I am ESFP, because I am exactly opposite of Daniel, and somehow INTJ is easier to remember. (More)
