New Phone. Where I’m At
If you’ve been following along the you know I bought a Pixel 6 and then returned it.
At this point I’ve decided to plug along on my buggy Galaxy S7 until something shakes loose. Supply is tight with most desirable phones on backorder. CES is this week so new phones will be announced. The Galaxy S22 is due out in February. So, I’m hoping that the supply gets better, new phones get released, and prices drop.
My area got slammed by a winter storm yesterday. The two major interstates got shut down. One because downed trees made it impassable, one because of “disabled tractor trailers”. Folks in that one were trapped on the highway overnight. This while temperatures dipped into the teens.
We didn’t fare too bad. Several trees snapped because of heavy, wet snow. I had to go buy a bigger chainsaw. Lost cable and internet but the power stayed on. I think we were very lucky.
Cable and internet came back moments ago. There will be lots of tree cutting when the weather breaks.

I was feeling a little guilty about leaving people out of the “Thank You” post so…
This is a list comes from the supporters of this site since I started keeping track of locations. Specifically, through buying the Win10 Tweak Guide.
So many people want to remain anonymous that I thought it would be cool to but everyone’s town, city, or village. I also included a map!
PLEASE let me know if I have left you out, or got anything wrong.
Also, please excuse the capitalization issues. This table was created by creating a large spreadsheet and the capitalization or lack of it is how they typed it in.
