I said, "shrink--I wanna kill..."

I went to the Apple Store this morning to replace my iPhone. They gave me a new one and got it going -- but for some reason,it wouldn't activate. The guy at the genius bar said to go to the AT&T store. So I did, and they tried several things that failed miserably, and they told me to go back to the Apple Store. They said that sometimes it takes a while to activate and to wait until 4 or so.

So then when the phone continued to not work, I called AT&T and they tried several dozen things, none of which worked. So tomorrow I have to take it to an AT&T store. Again.

The good thing that happened today was that the Census Bureau finally fixed my handheld. Tomorrow, when I'm not at the AT&T store, I'll be doing work for the Census Bureau.

Right now I'm watching the Yankee game, and plan to do work on both Strange Detractors #4 (Henson had notes) and Ghost Academy tonight.
