Phone Woes

So my sister texted me to tell me about this game I should try for Droid.  I thought I’d try it so I connected my phone to my PC via USB so I could put the game on it that way.  After copying the file, I disconnected the cable and something went wrong.  Something happened that has not happened to me before.

I saw a new icon in the notification bar of my Droid.  When I investigated, I found it said “SD card is damaged.  You may need to reformat.”  This was not good news.

I looked for solutions online, and most people were saying to transfer the contents of the card to the computer for backup and then reformat the card.  Well, I couldn’t seem to do that.  When I connect the phone to the PC via USB and try to turn on USB storage to access the card, it doesn’t work.  I tried removing the card and using a card reader, but the computer never saw it.  None of this was okay.

I booted the phone into recovery mode to see if there was anything there I could do.  I noticed an option called “Mount USB Mass Storage”.  I chose that, and immediately the files all popped up on my PC.  Without delay, I quickly used Unstoppable Copier to back up all the contents of the SD card to my computer.  I then reformatted the card, and I am now putting the contents back onto the card.

Copying the files back on seems to be taking much, much longer.  Might take a couple of hours.  Guess I could go watch a movie or something.  Just can’t use my phone until it’s all done.

I was supposed to call James.  It will have to wait, I guess :(

Day 10,302

I haven’t read any scripture yet today, but I will definitely do so when I get to work.  I think I noticed today’s passages are from Haggai.  I’ll let you know what I get from them.  I never got much from yesterday’s readings.  I hope God will show me something this time.

Last night I vented to Lisa like never before.  No, it was nothing directed at her.  It was a great outlet though, I think.  I went on about how I don’t feel like God loves me, and that I just wish he would show himself or do something in my life that would be some kind of sign to me that he is here.  My brain reminds me that he loves me, and that he’s here, but the point is that I don’t feel it.  I also went on about other things and really “stuck it to the man”, I guess one might say.  I really hope God was listening.  It was mostly directed at him.  Think of it as cries of desperation… without the actual crying.

I’m going to try to keep the ‘bad news’ and ‘complaints’ to a minimum today.  I don’t know if I’ll be able to do that all day but I’ll try.  If something really ridiculous comes up, I’ll have no choice but to blog about it.

If you’re reading this through my Facebook, be sure to check out that Metallicats video I favorited on YouTube.  Should show on my FB wall.  It’s really great in a very dorky way.  In fact, you should watch all of the videos that I favorite.  I favorite them for a reason!  If you think they are stupid or funny or boring or whatever, leave a comment and tell me.  They’re not my videos, but I still want to know your thoughts.

Well I better go get ready for work.  I’ve been leaving for work a little earlier each day lately so that I could get some breakfast on the way.  I’ll be adding to my Del Inferno collection.

BTW here’s the little calculator I used to quickly calculate the number of days I’ve been alive (used in the subject line): http://www.beatcanvas.com/daysalive.asp
