      @jd_1138 I'm with Boost Mobile. Bought an LG Tribute Royal. All my apps were restored, contacts of course..  and some settings. All pics were on the unaffected microSD card. But I refuse to put my life 'on the cloud'.

  4. Goddamnit. Got a call from my boss today telling me we are in fact 'essential' after I've had the week off. I'm expected to show up for work on Monday. In Wayne County. In DETROIT. I'm still on the fence...

      We've been relegated to some weird grey area.. I was told we were going to reopen today, but on a 'voluntary basis'. This makes no sense to me. I thought if we were 'essential' we would all have to show up, and if we weren't, we would all be expected to stay home. Needless to say, I'm holed up at home.

      We are an 'upfitter' that processes truck chassis for a company that supplies Amazon and UPS. I was told they are 'essential' because among other things, they transport medical supplies. Supposedly, my company has legally binding documents to support this.

      Tried the rice trick, but ended up just buying a new phone. Arrived today. I cannot express how much I loathe setting up a new phone. And losing all kinds of data, including old text messages.

      "Pop" in my neck of the woods (Detroit). Home of Faygo Redpop! It's a shame Faygo started adding sucralose as a sweetener, even to their non-diet pops. Haven't drank one since I found that out. The six classic flavors available in glass bottles still use good old cane sugar though. And there's always Towne Club, another local favorite.
