#5347: Not so fixed, after all.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is still a time bomb. Mind you, this is seven units out of countless millions, but T-Mobile and AT&T have stopped selling them (Verizon says it's backordered) and Samsung has halted production.

No, this thing ain't over yet.

Borepatch has a brief history of the GOP, 2010 onward.

The media is getting observably desperate to stop Trump. It's actually pretty funny.

Quoth another Borepatch post: "Trump is taking serious flak. That means that he's over the target." Yep! You don't take flak when you're fifty miles from anything valuable.

I'm a little disappointed, because one of the local PBS stations was running Doctor Who and (as mentioned a few weeks ago) I happened upon "The Ribos Operation", the first of the "Key of Time" episodes. I was looking forward to the next one, "Pirate Planet", because it was written by Douglas Adams and it's a classic. I eagerly set the DVR to record all future eps.

Well, the DVR didn't record anything, and I pretty much forgot all about it, what with Mrs. Fungus' illness and subsequent hospitalizations. Until last night, when I saw that it had recorded "Androids of Tara", which is number four in the sequence.

*sigh*

Plus side, it's still entertaining enough.

Meanwhile, we've been watching Westworld, entirely because Mrs. Fungus set it to record. Two eps in I can say I don't hate it, but I still have most of the reservations I did when I heard what it was going to be like. At least one of the subplots is intriguing, though.

While waiting for Mrs. Fungus at the doc's office today I was rereading Kimi ni Todoke, and realized that I'd forgotten how good that story is. Gonna have to re-watch the anime, I think.

As for me, up too late last night and then up too early today to get to the doc's office; I'm going to toss dinner into the crock pot and hit the hay for a while.
