There used to be a place in town that had a non-perfect room of stuff that was fine, but not the grade A collector stuff. We bought a lot of ours there because it was cheap and cool and we wanted to use them anyway.  So they had a good life of use before we got them, and we gave them another solid decade plus of heavy use and we've only lost a couple. I'm a bit shocked at the price of replacements, but I'm also shocked at the price of a good Mexican meal at a restaurant with a couple of beers.  I got a three pack to replenish and prepare for the next decade.

Yeah, no, the reset/reboot is a fail. Remote testing tells them I have a bad line/input somewhere.
And I don't even fish! but I have to wait until friday for their technopeep to arrive and diagnose. 
All systems are compromised - TV, computing are straining but I do have some functionality.

If it had turned out badly, this would definitely have been something that pisses me off. But all's well that ends only annoying, right?

We booked some airline travel a couple of months ago. 2 different trips/airlines so that Justine and I can meet up in Chicago for a few days. Each of us scheduled an early morning flight so that we'd arrive in Chicago at about the same time (Me: Delta/Midway, her Southwest/Midway). As things open up, they added flights and changed schedules for both of us. Delta moved most of its flights to O'Hare, I guess, so they put me on the only remaining flight into Midway, which took me BIL/SLC/ATLanta/CHI and arrived 12 hours after Justine. Took me 4 hours on hold to get that changed to something decent. So now I'm flying into O'Hare at noonish.

Justine was going OAK/MDW and Southwest did the same stunt, moving her to a 11pm arrival after going OAK/LAX/ATL/MDW. She was able to get a callback from Southwest so she didn't have to sit on hold, and they switched her to a straight shot easily. I guess the thing there was the computer defaulted to not allowing the system to book her for the earlier departure (20 minutes) because I can see where a lot of people might miss that flight.

So the annoying thing is why did people who booked early get dumped on the less desirable routes? It was pretty time-consuming to plan this out in the first place, then to have to fix it later? Guh.
