    [01:27:53] matt [wronka.org]/Maemo I've missed this "little" phone. In a lot of ways, there still isn't a better phone than the N900; but in many other ways...well, it's a shame there was never real successor.

    [01:38:57] matt [wronka.org]/benito "What's Next? Your Tesla is currently in production."

    I keep forgetting that California is three-days behind the east coast. Estimated end-of-line was 3/5. Promised follow-up on factory tours was 48H from approximately 18:26 EST Monday. Of course, the first ModelX was delayed more than 2y, so maybe I just need to adjust to TeslaTime.

    Tesla eMail
    [15:41:05] matt [wronka.org]/benito X-Spam-Status: No, score=0.1 required=3.0 tests=BAYES_00,EXTRA_MPART_TYPE,
    [22:58:08] matt [wronka.org]/benito I give-up generally. I'm not going to work around broken eMail systems. If you want to talk to me, don't break eMail. RFC1855 has not been obsoleted.

    [17:02:06] matt [wronka.org]/Trip I've been thinking of switching to an iPhone mobile device, and am watching Apple's event livestreamed, but listening to the song that played as Patrick broke out of the Island makes me ask myself if I'm making the right decision. Am I just trying to be harmonious?

    Amazon Deliveries
    [03:09:21] matt [wronka.org]/benito Our Experience with Amazon's first-party delivery (as opposed to e.g. UPS):

    Ordered diapers, two-day delivery (needed for school Monday). Delivery expected by 6pm. Called at 8pm, told the driver got off to a late start so they should arrive the next day; Amazon still reports by 6pm as the expected Delivery.

    Ordered boots and some cleaning supplies. We got a notification that two packages were delivered around 4:30pm. Two other packages (containing more boots) were expected for delivery that day. Amazon chat support at 6pm said to expect delivery by 3am EST.

    "Delivered" items arrived between 07:15am and 07:35am (while I was out dropping Clara off at day care). We haven't seen the other boots yet.
