A recharge and two sugars — 9 Comments

  1. Aren’t you supposed to be on holidays?  . . A recharge from technology? Turn off your computer and your phone and soak it up . . France and the tea . . not technorati! We do have ‘readers’ you know and we’ll be made aware when you return. Hope you’re having a wonderful time. I know where I’d rather be right now and it aint Parramatta!

  2. Dammit, all of TAT’s assassination contacts were stored on that phone.  The boss is going to be so pissed off.

  3. I once poured a Bourbon and Coke into a digital diary I had in my shirt pocket. I was trying to pour it into my mouth and missed. It wasn’t the first one 😉
    Anyway, it never worked again, and wasn’t backed up so I attempted to fix it. Once I opened it up I could see all the soldered joints corroded. Not sure if it was the bourbon, or the coke. Obviously slightly more caustic than a cup of tea.

  4. Fair play to for finding you phone in your tea and it worked afterwords…I was having a cup the other morning and in that last mouthful of what I thought was golden nectar sent by the gods…I felt something strange in my mouth, I am sorry but I had to spit it out…..A bee…sadly the tea did not bring this little vibrating bundle of joy back to life.  Needless to say I haven’t been able to put a cup of tea to my lips since.

  5. Now isn’t there a sermon for the Pioneers in that?  Had you been on the demon drink, it would not have happened.

  6. Baino – I need my puter to store photographs on, and anyway, Herself said she wanted to bring hers.

    K8 – My apologies to TAT.  He can have all my girlfriends’ numbers if he wants?

    Neighbour – Jayzus!!  As if bourbon wasn’t bad enough you put COKE in it?  Don’t you know that stuff is nothing short of drain cleaner?  It’s no wonder your joints were corroded, and probably a few brain cells as well.  Stick to Guinness.

    Geri – I would agree with you if I knew what a T-mobile was.

    Bubbles – A bee is fine.  A wasp is a different matter.  I would never share my mug with a wasp.   Did you not give it the kiss of life?

    Ian – Don’t be too hasty.  I have been giving this a lot of thought.  At the first available opportunity, I’m going to dunk TAT’s mobile in a pint of Guinness [someone elses, of course] to see if I can make it work better.

  7. One should never underestimate the power of a good hot cup of tea.
    It was the Coke that corroded the solder connections. Used to use the stuff to dissolve the rust on seized up bolts all the time (completely dissolves a good size rusty nail within 24 hours you know). It’s amazing people even drink the stuff. It’s amazing people drink bourbon.
