Last week I got a call from my cellphone provider that I almost ignored. For an unknown reason I acthually answered and the gentleman calling explained it was a customer courtesy call to take a look at my plan and see if there was a better option for me. In the back of my mind I still suspect they were just trying to get me off the plan I was grandfathered on. In any event he suggested a plan that got me to the same monthly fees, but had a lot more data, and included long distance calling within Canada. I was intrigued, so I got the names of the plans (there were different plans for the two phones on the account) and went online to investigate. A couple days later I switched over the phones to the new options, but with one small change. For Sue’s phone the suggestion included a 10GB plan. Considering that we came from 6GB for both of us and rarely went over, having 5GB on my phone and 10 on hers seemed overkill when I could save a few bucks and put both onto the 5GB plan ( we each get 5GB that we can share). In the end I am saving ~$15/month, have upped our data from 6 to 10GB and I now have Canada wide long distance. That is a huge win in my books.
The kids and I didn’t go to any particular Remembrance Day ceremony today. Instead the three of us did a moment of silence together at a roadside pullout. We talked a little about what it meant, then continued on our travels.
I really wish more artists (in particular comic artists) would use any blogging platform over Instagram. I’m always slightly disappointed when I read some comic strips on Bored Panda then discover they can only be followed on Instagram.
Saw my physio yesterday. It was a pretty intense and painful session working on my neck. Lots of massage, and lots of IMS needles. It left me feeling drained, but by the end of the day I could see some progress. Today there is a lot less pain, and more range of motion.
A pain in the neck. On Friday I developed this odd pain when I turn my head certain ways, or use certain neck muscles. It is so bad that at times it takes my breath away. I am also not sleeping properly since rolling over causes enough pain to wake me.🤞physio tomorrow can fix me
Anyone else have a Halloween hangover? I’m talking about the tiredness and sugar headaches, not anything to do with alcohol.
First world problem of the day: tonight we discovered that our PVR somehow lost all of the recording schedules. Hopefully we recreate them all, but I feel like we forgot some.
☕️ I’m having a good coffee day. Each cup I’ve made has been excellent. Getting the amounts and timing right in an AeroPress can be tricky.
It astounds me that people still don’t understand intersections, and how to stop on the sensors to make lights change. It’s not hard. ￼
Close to getting OwnYourGram by @aaronpk running on a local machine. I think the nginx config isn’t quite right. When I load localhost instead of loading a page, a file gets downloaded. I’ll dig into that tomorrow I though.
