Stupid smart phone decided to launch a protest called Occupy My Weekend but after much googling and driving around town to find good cell service and way too much time on the phone dealing with the Sprint Airave which is my least favorite electronic gizmo ever I finally got it working. Except for the iFarts. On the first morning I started hearing them at 5:20 a.m. An urgent sounding beep accompanied by a vibration noise. Every few minutes. Like an irritating toddler demanding attention. I figured out it was the email alert which I thought I had already turned off but somehow not quite. So I turned it off again but only succeeded in getting the beeps to stop. The thing was still vibrating at every email. Tiny little iFarts telling me every time Living Social has a special on colonics or somebody has an incredible investment deal for me if only I'll send them the password to my back account. iPhone is not smart enough to understand that I don't need to know about this stuff at 5:20 on Sunday morning. Or ever. I was starting to worry about developing Phantom Ring/Vibrate Syndrome where you think you hear the phone vibrating/ringing but it's not.
But with a little more googling I finally figured out how to stop the iFarting without turning off all the vibrating. Now if only I could figure out how to make it vibrate enough to give me a massage.
I experimented a little bit with the camera and so far I'm unimpressed. The sales guy was going on about how awesome it is and took a picture to show me and of course it was blurry. I took this over the weekend and I think I'll stick with my cheapo point and shoot.
However the video camera looks promising, might be better than the Flip anyway. I want to start doing videos for my business website and I was thinking I might have to splurge on a better video camera but maybe this will do the trick. Unfortunately I don't see how to attach it to a tripod but maybe the engineer in me can figure something out.
USDAA trial this weekend and until yesterday Strum hadn't had any practice since the DOCNA trial 6 weeks ago. I lost my indoor training partner to her former partner who came back from an injury and we've had snow on the ground since X-mas and temps. in the 20's so we ended up with an unplanned break. Felt so good to practice yesterday though. Strum got some tricky weave pole entries and I had a chance to shake the cobwebs out of my handling. I love practice, didn't realize how much I missed it and I feel a lot better about the trial. I'd like to pick up some more Advanced legs and get into Masters so we can enter the Masters Challenge classes. Wish they'd let any level enter them like they used to. They're so unpopular, you'd think they'd want to attract as many people as possible. Ah well, I guess that's motivation to get into Masters.
