Default Yeah, Another BBY Noob

Please Login to Remove!

So, the boss says to me (after getting a 5-7 month temporary assignment that will involve me traveling quite a bit) "It might be an idea if you called IT and ordered yourself a BlackBerry". So for those of you who have bosses, you know that when he (she) says "It might be a good idea if .............." it usually means "Git 'er dun!!"

So, late this morning, a box shows up by courier at the office. It contained a shiny new 8830 with all kinds of parts, pieces, doo-dads & whizgiggins. Spent most of the afternoon playing and searching and trying to figure how in heck these fat fingers are going to be able to push less than 4 of those little buttons at once.

To anyone who's interested, I'm 47 (for 2 more days, anyway ), been married for just about 29 years & have a 24 YO daughter. I own a Gold Wing and there's never enough months to ride it as much as I want.

Well, off to wear out the search button!!!
