My new cell phone

My new cell phone was delivered this afternoon and it’s a pretty cool little gadget. It’s a Motorala RAZR. It’s very thin but has a very good display. I got it mainly for the BlueTooth and Speakerphone, both of which I have already made use. I have my phone book now synced to my Mac address book, and whenever I bring my phone within 30 feet of my Mac at home, it sync’s up the address books. This is incredibly convenient.

I had a work-related meeting that I attended remotely (from home) this afternoon and I used my speaker phone for the full hour-long meeting and it worked just great.

Now, I am tweaking the settings to get it to work just the way I want it to. For instance, I have Jen’s number voice activated, so if I touch a button and say her name, my phone dials her number.

I also tried the camera phone out and that seemed to work just fine. It does video too, but I don’t care so much about that.

It’s a pretty neat little gadget.

New phone

I ordered a new cell phone tonight. I’ve been wanting to get a new phone for quite some time and tonight I decided to do it. I got a Motorola RAZR V3 phone. It’s got a few additional features that I don’t have on my current phone, specifically the bluetooth technology so I can finally sync it up with my computer. I should get it via UPS in about 5 business days.


I now know why it seemed like I was never getting any email from Rich. I just happened to randomly check my email trash and saw that my spam filter trashed a reply from Rich because at some point I’d accidentally blacklisted his address. Whoops! Good thing I caught it. I whitelisted his account and things should be good there. But I wonder: have I blacklisted anyone else?

Coming soon — new domain

I finally got around to registering the jamierubin.net domain this morning. I registered it for the next three years, and put in a request to have the domain hosted as part of my Panix account. Panix should be processing my request shortly and then I’ll make the necessary adjustments and updates and soon, my new domain should be active.

Blog stats

It’s been 10 or so weeks since I’ve transferred my daily diary to this blog. In that time, I’ve done over 200 entries, which is pretty good. I also haven’t missed a day in over 60 days which is also pretty good. Norm makes fun of my for this. I’m a geek, I admit it, okay.

Here is an interesting breakdown. The average number of blog entries on a given weekday:

Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat
2.89 3.67 4.11 3.34 3.56 2.50 3.25

So it looks as though Tuesdays, for some reason, have been my heaviest blogging days, while Fridays have been my lightest. Go figure.
