Samsung data cable, anyone? [10 Sep 2005|02:21pm]

Anyone need a data cable with driver disk that works with any of the following Samsung SGH phones?

  • E715
  • X426
  • X427
  • X475
  • X475
  • D415
  • E317
  • E315
  • E316
  • S307
  • C225

I have one that I just bought. Turns out S's phone is an R225. Which looks just like a C225. I don't think I can return it, so it's free for the taking.

I can't find a data cable for the R225 anywhere. If anyone has tips for how to use the R225 as a modem (dialing a dial-up number, not GPRS), or knows where to get a data cable for it (do they even make one?) let me know.

Update, later that day: Sorry, I have to retract the offer. In a long and tangled series of Tmobileness, I've ordered a new phone for S that will work with this lovely cable. I also sold my soul to them for another year, and asked them if they wanted change.

The first broadcast of All Things Considered... [10 Sep 2005|09:04pm]
[ mood | amused ]

...featured Allen Ginsberg.

The first broadcast of All Things Considered led with the segment about the protest rally, followed by a zesty array of stories: a roundtable discussion with reporters from the Christian Science Monitor, which segued into a reading of two antiwar poems from the era of World War I, a dispatch from a barber shop in Iowa whose proprietor was reeling from lost income as more men chose to wear their hair long; a portrait of a nurse turned heroin addict; and, finally, a discussion between Allen Ginsberg and his father, Louis, about the merits and shortcomings of drug abuse.

(from The Nation, 2005 May 23)

I have to agree with the article; it does sound like ATC was a cooler show back in the day.
