Since we are running "pain" entries this week, I will add a few of my own:
1. The hard drive in my Scientific Atlanta DVR just conked out. I have had the unit for less than 2 months! Time Warner is sending the service personnel tomorrow to fix it (my guess is that they will have to replace the unit). I'm not sure how reliabile this DVR is going to be--we will have to wait and see, but my confidence is low right now. In the meantime, I lost several recordings that I didn't get a chance to view (that's pain).
2. Pain is grading hundreds of papers with poor writing styles. I'm not talking about grammar or spelling mistakes. I'm talking about poorly organized or incoherent papers I have to read. Those papers take about 3 times longer to read as compared to well-organized and coherent papers. I'm just glad that I'm done with grading.
3. Pain is getting old. I tried to play ping-pong, tennis, and golf all in one day. I could hardly walk afterward. My knees, shoulders, elbows, and hips all hurt. I've learned my lesson here.
BTW, I'm playing with the new Zire 72 and the Sena T3 case right now, and my PalmCorner Weekly will return with those reviews next Monday (now that I'm done with my end-of-the-semester grading rush).
