Today while rather uneventful has been a slightly busy day. Chris was due to have a replacement phone that came to me as I am the account holder. In turn, the phone will be passed to him, and the G2x he was using for about a month will go to Andrea. However, a few things had to happen first. The phone needed to charge, and I needed to install updates. To minimize interruption while assuring the phone transfer will take place properly, I waited until after 8PM to change the SIM. The reason for this is the G2x uses a Mini-SIM, while the new phone will use a Micro-SIM. Because of this, I couldn’t just wait for him to come after work and insert the SIM card in the new phone.
I also took the dogs out for a walk twice today. I took them out in the morning when it was cooler, and a shorter walk in the afternoon. I also watched a couple of shows on Hulu and wrote a couple of emails. The landlord also came by to fix the back door. The hinges were coming loose, so they needed to be tighten.

A month ago, Google has a number of communication services that simply do not talk to each other. There is Google Talk which is much like Yahoo Messenger, or AIM. There is Google Voice which uses Google Talk, but offers a phone number. This can also integrate with an Android phone. There is Google Plus Messenger which is a comparison to Facebook Messenger.
However, just recently (2013-05-21), Google has announce Hangout, and offers it as a replacement to Google Talk. It also offers video, and VOIP services for those using Google Plus. The idea will eventually be to replace all of the services with Hangout. Name aside, this is not a great idea, but they do have some parts in the right direction.

Not much happened today. I wrote a couple of emails, watched a few shows on Hulu. I gave my dogs a rawhide bone which they both enjoyed. Andrea called to see if Chris was there, but he never showed since he left yesterday morning.
As for plans for tomorrow, not much is planned. I will consider going to the grocery store to pick up dog food. It is the last thing I will need to get. Although, I might stay home as I should be expecting a new tangle free set of headphones.
Not much happened today. Things were pretty quiet this day, although I chatted with someone online, and wrote a couple of emails. I also worked on a few pages within my web site. Last, I walked the dogs in the early afternoon which was good for the both of them, especially with the weather improving.
As for plans for tomorrow, I will have to wait on UPS, and hopefully they come before noon as they did the a couple of days ago. I also got the refund for the charger that didn’t work properly. Not much else is planned though.
Not much happened today. Talisa’s new leash collar came in. It was actually good that UPS decided to deliver the product before noon. Most of the time, they never come before 2PM. I am not complaining, but it is a shame that I am amazed when a company does something right. While Talisa wasn’t fond of the snout loop of the collar, she has been very good about not pulling.
Not much else happened today. I did composed a couple of emails, and started writing a blog posting on my Big Ass What If site, but hadn’t finished. I also watched a couple of shows that came through via Hulu which I watched.

A bit happened today, at least during the morning. In a sense, I didn’t want to go as I still had a bit of pain, however I sucked it up. I had a few errands that had to be done in order to make life reasonable over the next days, and future. Before I left, I gave the dogs a rawhide stick. They get one every few days to keep their teeth clean.
About 9AM, I left to take a bus to go to a post office. It was actually a sub-station with the postal clerk complaining that I only had a $100 bill when I wanted to pay for $70 worth of services. I personally feel it wasn’t my fault that he couldn’t complete my order fully. I think from now on, I will check to see if I could just purchase online through the post office’s web site. It wouldn’t have solved all of my problems, but it would have solved what I would consider as stupidity on the worker’s part.

Not much happened today. I had a couple of things I wanted to address, and spent some time sending a couple of email questions to a couple of developers with results not favorably to me. I also had some more time in Second Life which I had a pleasant time.
Chris also came by for a few hours. In addition, I went to make a small deposit where I immediately sent it as transfer to credit card. I also had another issue that needed to be addressed. Otherwise, not much went on. As for plans for tomorrow, I will have to make a couple of phone calls, and if my ankles can handle it, walk the dogs.
Not much happened today. I walked the dogs once, and went to the store to get something to drink. However, I spent the day working on a Vista PC. This computer is a quality machine, but it reminded me of why I hated Vista so much. The OS restore disc came with SP1, and I made the effort to download SP2, and still spent the day downloading updates.
The PC was finally updated, and software installed – however I had a problem with the email account set up. I did finally got everything up. As for plans for tomorrow, I will finish everything on the Vista machine, and call the person that owns the computer. Hopefully, I will be able to collect the money and relinquish the same tomorrow. If possible, I will also need to get to the grocery store, but will not be going if it is too late.
Not much happened today. I wrote a couple of emails, and made a couple of phone calls. Chris also stopped by for a couple of hours. However, much of the day was pretty quiet. One of the things I done was made an appointment with my PCP (Primary Care Physician) to hopefully find an alternative anesthesiologist. The one that I currently have doesn’t seem to want to do her job.
As for plans for tomorrow, I will need to go to my doctor’s appointment, and will figure out the time that I will need to leave in the morning. Otherwise, no real plans for the day.
Not much happened today. I noticed a leak in the kitchen sink which I notified the landlord. He said he would be here in a couple of days to fix it. Not much else happened though. I am working on a new section for the website I have been working on. It will be a hard section since I am not familiar at all with the area.
I wrote an email to someone, but that would be the highlight. As for plans for tomorrow, I will be going to the local Rite-Aid. My next major series of events is on the first where I will have a couple of extra activities I must do.
