Last night my phone died. I googled the symptoms after a factory reset didn’t stop it from locking up on boot and it sounds like a hardware problem. Fortunately, I saw some reports that people were able to send their phone in to be repaired, you just have to call the HTC support number.

Today I decided to be productive (all I remember accomplishing yesterday was finishing my book), so I was going to install the bookcase doors that I got from Ikea last weekend.

I noticed the third door was sliding around in its package when I pulled it out to open it: turned out the gap that was allowing the door to slide was where it was missing the box of mounting hardware (hinges, screws, etc). I guess I’ll be making another trip up to Denver soon to get that exchanged. I did at least dust that bookshelf and install one door.
