(unlikely dreams)

donderdag 23 juni 2005

I unexpectedly got a new cell phone today. I didn't really need or want one, but Mom and Catie's phones were suffering various ailments and since we're on a family plan, their switching meant I had to switch, too. So now I have a Samsung P777 - very slick. Nice graphics, gorgeous camera clarity, fun extras, and cool 'hidden' number pad (the top slides back to reveal it).

HOWEVER. Although I can store up to 100 MB worth of mp3s on it and play them back... I cannot set an mp3 as my ringtone. Why? Does anyone know how to crack this? I have an irrational desire to have Men At Work's "Land Down Under" as my ringtone, yet I don't want to pay $2.50. Since the gadget supports mp3s, there must be a stealthy way to do it, but I don't have time to find it right now, BECAUSE... I'm off to Key West!

A 12.5 mile swim, in what looks to be rather nasty weather. Wish me luck, everyone! I'll be back on Sunday night.
