I think my drive enclosure will arrive today. That will let me mount the old SSD externally, and get the new platter drive installed.
Then I'll pull all the old stuff off the SSD, wipe it, and see about dumping my movies onto it for the blu-ray player in the living room.
But for now, off to work.

It's been a week. Had a hard drive fully die on me Thursday. Money I wanted to put aside for a new e-bike was instead spent on replacement storage solutions. Oh well, guess I'll try again next check.

My aim is to have enough put aside by spring to buy a better bike.

@NinTheFolf Vitamin D does seem to have some pretty good benefits. I've been missing mine as of late, and I'm definitely feeling less me now that I'm thinking about it.

@NowakVulpix That's pretty easy. It's cold, wet, gets in your shoes, thaws out in your shoes, is even worse at that point, can thaw on the ground then refreezes as sheets of invisible ice that tries to kill or maim you by throwing you to the ground... (:

@Rob_T_Firefly @USBloveDog
It's a wonderful thing. Back before Go-Ogle bought GrandCentral, that was a feature they had, and I made damn good use of it. I had no robocalls after a month or two, and that lasted a long time. I should probably go back to that.

I think, in the interim, that I'll put on socks and shoes, and head to the store for a cut of beefs and some butter.

I want to vacuum pack the beef with seasoned butter, and let the rice cooker be its hot water bath for cooking (yay, sous vide without more single purpose hardware).

When done, put it in a skillet for a minute each side to give it color, and put this in my mouth.

It'll be bad for me, no doubt, but it's rare for me to ever do anything of this caliber.

I can finally have natural light in my bedroom, coupled with privacy. I made myself finally install the other piece of privacy film in my window, so right now, my bedroom no longer feels like a dark cave.

Just one that needs me to go through these boxes and throw out more shit over the coming weeks. I'll start that project Thursday evening, once all of the other trash is out, though I might just bag up items and put it out next to the bin Friday. Pay the overflow fee.

I need to consider a new phone. The Motorola G6 Play is working now, but it took several factory resets to get to this point.
I'm only just getting to the point of restoring my 2FA tokens today, and logging in to various apps, which is sad.

This makes two phones I've purchased to escape this Motorola G6 Play.

This makes two phones that have had some sort of exception that has forced me back into the G6 Play.

Woo. Yay.

The universe, or maybe even the multiverse, has aligned to conspire against me.

Got that Essential Phone in the mail today.

Putting that Essential Phone in the mail tomorrow.

It's a refurb, which I'm absolutely okay with.
It's broken more than this piece of turd Motorola, which I'm not losing my cash to.

Guess it's back to the damn drawing board. :/

@djsundog ... Conveyor belt fried okra and barbecue ribs.

🀀

Though that idea is somewhat closely approached by rodΓ­zio. Yes, kind person, I will gladly take a cut of the meat you've brought to my table. :9

@salameleon Yes, and so is my local conveyor belt sushi place that I go to. There are a few in town, but this one wins for a lot of reasons.
... One of which is the price. $2 a plate for just about anything they offer. Custom rolls are $6 ($3 a plate, must take both plates).

I don't think y'all can convince me that conveyor belt sushi itself is bad.

Maybe specific places, but not the idea.

@kode54 If it requires fewer factory resets to get the fucking thing usable than this piece of fuck shit Motorola G6 Play, I'll deal with a god-fucked notch on a phone.

I just punched myself in the budget in order to try to get away from this Motorola.

Fingers crossed that the $170 I just burned on an Essential Phone doesn't light my damn fingers on fire... I'll know this weekend.

@USBloveDog You can tell them apart fairly easily, though.
One wears its hair in {curly braces}. The other wears its hair <spiky>, with plenty of gel.

@ziphi It's a poorly chosen insult.

I don't shave frequently because my skin flat out detests it. Ingrowing hairs and pockmarks on my face if I try to shave frequently are the thanks my body gives.
