No photos to bore you with today.
Nothing really to update either;
So let’s roll right along with this week’s CTWW.
This week Small has done a bunk.
Actually, I knew this was coming, just didn’t know when. She’s moving.
Good luck! I hate moving house.
So, the CTWW is continuing what we did last week. Click on the CTWW banner or visit my last week’s CTWW post.
This week my old cellphone gave up the ghost. I can’t complain, it was given to me, the same as my first cellphone. I have had 10 years of cost free cellphones.
I eventually got a new one on Monday.
Of course, it’s made of plastic. Only Steam Punk cellphones are made of steel.
I had looked around some shops and all they had were smartphones, I didn’t want a smartphone, I am smart enough to figure most things out.
I eventually found a kiosk selling such items in another department store I visited.
Simple, camera, music, sms, qwerty keys and it even makes phone calls. $129 (about US$55); it fitted the budget.
I expected it to come coddled in plastic and was pleased to find that it didn’t.
Only the battery was sealed in a small plastic bag, that and the rest was packed in a simple cardboard box.
Now, I have the problem. How to dispose of an old cellphone. It’s not repairable, it was too old when I got it; so that is not an option. I am looking now for a responsible way to dump it.
Not so easy when you live so far out of town. The velho oeste (Wild West) where I live is devoid of such niceties.
In the meantime, it RIPs with other PC bits and pieces in a box waiting a solution.
Perhaps the monitor repair chappy, knows. When I see him next, I’ll ask.
So that’s my continuation of last week’s CTWW on plastics.
