Meanwhile....it continues....

The buying of stuff in the week before I leave for the cruise.

Not really sure if you could say it is related to the cruise or not.

First thing this morning, I renewed my Norton Antivirus subscription for my desktop. It expires later this month....the day I get back from the cruise. I had put off the renewal to be sometime this week. And, when I saw the dialog asking me to renew this morning....that's when I did it.

It did also help a bit that today is that start of a new statement cycle for my Discover card.

Elsewhere, namely at apple.com, I had a saved shopping cart to get AppleCare for my iPod. Decided to go ahead and put that through. Though I guess I didn't account for the fact that they probably need to mail something to me before I can activate it or whatever. Somehow I figured it would be automatic or online or something. Seeing as I bought the iPod directly from apple.com originally...about 10 months ago.

Of course, I didn't buy AppleCare on my previous iPod....on my todo list is make a battery claim for it. Though the fact that I got AppleCare on my current iPod, means I'm not as likely to be getting the next new iPod to come along....

Finally, I purchased a Maxtor One Touch II from one of my favorite online retailers....and the one where I seem to get all my harddrives from....ZipZoomFly.com. This has been on my wishlist for a while, and I had always intended to get it before the cruise. The intent of this drive is to supplement my current desktop backup plan.

Meanwhile, there's a big storage space crunch....partly compounded by those two bad 250GB drives. Later this summer, I plan to address those issues. Though there are other pressing space issues as well. So, the plan might stretch for a year or two before I get there...and who knows what kind of seemingly excessively sized disks I'll be buying..... &#59;D

Last item...should I get a subscription to WeatherBug Pro, so I'll stop the annoying ads (and get access to some of the pro features). I guess I'll find out when I see if they'll take Discover :P

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
