Problems and Solutions

Problem: I woke up yesterday and my cellphone was dead.
Solution: Neither Motorola nor T-Mobile will do anything about it. I have to buy a new one at retail price. Joy.
Problem: Cable modem unsyncs and resyncs several times an hour.
Solution: Time-Warner very promptly diagnosed the problem, and sent someone out immediately to replace the modem. Which didn't fix it, problem persists.
Problem: Rejected by McSweeney's.
Solution: Suck it up. Drive on.
Problem: Replacing phone means no money for hotel room at friend's wedding.
Solution: Cancel reservation, drive back and forth night of wedding.
Problem: Getting moved to a different position in the company, a non-technical position. However, I still be on the hook for midnight maintenance calls and 24x7 on-call status.
Solution: Not sure yet.

I have a few extra cellphones. One is a Japanese phone which will work with any SIM card. As long as you have GSM service, you can use the phone.

Want it?

I can't find a charger for it. It's the Japanese version of the old Ericsson T68i. All the numbers are in Japanese too, but I'm sure you can figure it out :P You'll have to get a charger for it.

I've swapped it out for both my AT&T service and my Cingular service, had no problems, so it should work for you (unless the American companies are getting even more anal-retentive about keeping things proprietary).

I'll need an address to mail it to, or you could come hang out in the Bay this weekend ;)

That's a good idea. Giant squid are probably illiterate, but why take a chance?
