Still to do

September 5th, 2013

The suitcase is packed. All the various assorted gifts, yarn, books, hats and audiobooks are in the duffle. Cameras packed, documents all run off.

Even did the on-line check in.

I would pack up the computer early and head to bed except for this slight problem …. I have this external hard drive which is flaky so I started Data Rescue on it, and I have just noticed that is it going to be hours yet before it is done. And since there are mostly MP3 files showing up, it means I am probably salvaging audio books and music.

There is also the issue of communications in the US. I had a US cell phone. I have not clue one as to in which safe place it is languishing awaiting rescue. Meanwhile,


so the next step was identifying a cell phone that it would fit. Turns out we have two Samsung with the right size slot.

one black, one white, no clue which works!

see that thing? the one between the plug and the wall?

    What format is Phryne Fisher? I’ve listened/read all the books.

      Bought from Amazon – so US format (NTSC refers to the old video/TV formats from before it became Zones)

      No ports in Calgary – the cruise comes after the trains and planes and ….
