An LG P500 Brick

That's the best description of my cellphone at the moment; I'm resorting to Thomas' old HTC windows based phone and I hate it!   My LG got hooked up to the computer the day before yesterday to check for updates and the LG Software found one, downloaded it fine and then started installing it.  Lost the connection to the phone which went into "Emergency Mode" with a fetching green screen.   Couldn't re-establish connection, factory reset wouldn't work either and after a little checking on the net it seems this isn't an uncommon problem.   Now it won't even turn on, it had a full battery before this so I think it's a dodo.  Thomas will have to take it into the Telecom shop tomorrow, it's still in warranty and hopefully they'll be able to sort it out quickly so I can get rid of the horrible HTC.  One other bad thing, apparently my contacts list had been saved to the phone, not the SIM card, so I've lost all that.  Next time I'll change that setting.
Monday I also noticed the car had only one working headlight so that got fixed today; don't have to worry about being pulled over now which is good.

Yesterday I hosted a spinning day, I think it went well, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and I got 6 bobbins of Gotland plied off; photo's will come later when I get enough dry weather to wash them.   It's been raining here for what feels like forever.   George has come home with soaked socks for 2 days in a row.

Second sock is halfway through the ribbing, photos' later.  I won't be casting on anything new until the socks and at least one other item is finished.   I'd love to finish my Central Park Hoodie, it keeps being put off and I need it!

my phone is exactly that - just a phone and pretty much nothing else. Pretty sure my contacts are on the SIM though - hope it all gets sorted soon

I gave up my cell phone a few years ago - I don't miss it!

Glad the socks are going well - can't wait to see them. Thanks again for testing!
