Went traveling with some coworkers. We took an early morning bus to Takayama and spent the day hiking, eating, and looking in old shops.

Takayama is famous for its old towns and fall foliage. If you have the chance to go, I strongly recommend that you go.

Goodbye Nextan & Hello Sammy

20150916_174320

Over the weekend, my dear phone “Nextan” gave up the ghost. My Nexus had been showing signs of its age for a while now, but it came to a head Friday night. After many “fevers” (battery overheating issue, common in that particular make) and a few comas (random black screens/shut downs), Nextan was given a quiet ceremony at the T-mobile store.

Nextan met its successor, “Sammy” the Samsung, exchanged a few words (contacts/photos), before being shut down for the long sleep-mode. Upon autopsy, it was found to have heart (battery) failure, and a severe lack of (ie: no) cooling paste. Nextan’s family has decided to donate its parts, where applicable.

Sammy, on the other hand, is doing well in its new home. Sammy has been helping its mistress with her photography, using her amazing eye (camera), and assisting with everyday actions. It looks like Sammy and its mistress will get along well.

Since getting Sammy, I’ve been taking photos of everything. The trees are starting to change, so I made sure to make the most of it. I will probably be flooding your Reader with tree leaves in the near future.
