mdlbear: the positively imaginary half of a cubic mandelbrot set (Default)

I guess the big news from Friday is that I finally upgraded to an android phone: a Pantech Burst from AT&T. They were able to confirm that it'll be upgraded to ICS, and it's smaller and lighter than either of the two I'd been considering. The screen is gorgeous. The one thing I don't like is that the clock widget isn't as good as the one on the HTC phone I have at work; that's annoying; there really doesn't seem to be a good equivalent. (The HTC widget includes alarms and a desk clock. Pantech's links to the calendar, which is useful, but I miss having quick access to the desk clock. Fortunately there are lots of great, free widgets out there.)

I got my phone at lunchtime; needless to say I didn't get as much writing done that afternoon as I'd intended. Yesterday afternoon I went out and got a microSD card for it. I also made dinner (red snapper and brussels sprouts, with a rather bright guacamole as appetizer), made our hotel reservations for Westercon, and decided to go up to Seattle for Norwescon.

No walk, but no depression, either. I'll take it.

Is my icon on comments actually defaulting to the one I call "fanac", as seems to be the case? ... And WhyTF is DW asking me AGAIN for my username WHEN I'M ALREADY LOGGED IN??????

ETA: The name "fanac" shows up, greyed out, when I start to enter a comment. Then when I have typed my comment, this is what I get.



Sorry, mdlbear, I'm not sure I can replicate this posting a comment to my own blog.
