Who needs Folgers to wake up when you have broken things?

On the list of things that have broken in the past 30 days:

APC Battery Backup

Microwave

Lightbulbs (I’m counting them ’cause they are the CFLs)

And now, my phone.  I had been planning on wiping the OS for a few weeks now because it’s been running slow.  It decided to force the issue for me this morning with an App Error 523.  I don’t think it would have been so bad under other circumstances.  Reloading the OS requires a native Windows operating system.  There’s something about the emulation/virtualization that prevents the phone from taking the reload.  Given that I run linux 100% of the time, that poses a problem.  I had kept an external hard drive with it installed for cases like this, but I just repurposed it for my media server rebuild.

Oops.

Gotta love technology.
