UPDATE: No laptop… No phone…January 5th, 2011 — roaksoax
My plans to work over the holidays were affected because I ended up not having my laptop available. Fortunately for me I got it back few days ago, which means I can now get back to do the Ubuntu related stuff I wanted to do (TestDrive, PowerNap, Update the Cluster Stack to the latest).
However, after getting my laptop back, I dropped my Nexus One into the water…(yeah boomer). Fortunately, it was turned off. I removed the battery, Memory Card, SIM Card, and dry it as fast as I could… I haven’t turned it up yet since I’m waiting for it to dry completely; but, to help with that, I put it into a bowl with rice. It is sitting there for the last couple of days, since rice is supposed to absorb moisture and humidity. Hopefully it works again!
UPDATE: After leaving my N1 to dry for a couple of days in rice, I decided to give it a try today and see if it works… and IT DOES!! Nothing seems to be malfunctioning… I guess I was just lucky then!!
Anyway, good thing is that I had an old phone so I’m not totally incommunicated (Just no twitting, facebook, irc from the phone when I’m not at home… I guess I’ll prolly be suffering from the abstinence syndrome…or not ).
