Lakehills, TX - TT

Monday - This morning was on the cooler side so I explored the trails around the cabin. It turns out that there are quite a few trails and not many signs. Kind of challenging to keep track of the trail. If you look carefully, you can see some deer, and there are a lot of deer around here. We see a lot around the cabin.

I plan to participate in both test sessions today as there aren't other plans. Bridget needed to pick up her laptop from the RV plus a few other things. She is getting ready for her trip back to Fairbanks next week. At that point, I will be moving to other locations. Trying to figure out what to do. Maybe a longish term AirB&B or possibly a road trip to visit my mom in Oregon. It sort of depends on what the shop finds.

Tuesday - Since the full release will probably be next month, I decided to try the public beta. I’m sitting in the campground activity center to use their WiFi since it’s a 5.2GB download. It’s taking about an hour and I’m the only one here. Quiet, air-conditioned, and reasonably fast Internet.

Later - I'm back in the cabin getting ready for the first test session. I'm also taking the opportunity to back up the entire iPhone locally to the Mac instead of the norm of backing up the most important data to iCloud. It would make it easier to restore if the bata is horrible. Though, if the internet reviews can be believed, it is stable with some nice features such as better power management. I've tried every other iOS beta over the years so why not this one.

Even Later - No drama or problems associated with the beta software. And there are some interesting features such as limited un-sending email and limited editing sent messages. And, a lot more customization of the interface as has been available with Android since day one.

  1. I can't imagine how secure you must feel with three wheels. I've seen roads that are beyond me on two wheels, but if I had three.... :) Maybe someday I suppose!
