It seems like I’ve spent a lot of time so far this vacation dealing with technology.
Dan’s BlackBerry was delivered the day before we left, so a good part of Friday was spent getting it set up. I am not sure why a brand new phone is delivered with an older version of the operating system and desktop software, but it was, and that took a while to update. Also, there is no quick and easy way to get contacts from a Motorola phone to a BlackBerry, especially if you don’t want to involve Outlook. All is good now though.
There are three Dish Network satellite receivers here at Mom and Dad’s, but only one gets used daily. After a bad moment trying to reconnect the oldest TV, with the help of (non-outsourced! yay!) Dish phone support, all was working again. Well, almost. Apparently Dish receivers have to be reactivated if they are not used regularly. Sigh. Another phone call, another wait. All is well again so can’t be too upset for now.
