4/9/09 - Branson and the black screen of death.

As Cristi posted on her blog, we took a weekend trip to Branson. We had a great time where we spent too much money and ate way too much. My main reason for going was to get away from things for a couple of days, but also to get some new shirts. I haven't bought new clothes in probably a year or more, and was in need of some new shirts. As luck would have it, although the Polo outlet is already discounted, they were having a sale on top of that so the shirts were just about 50% off. I got 4 new shirts and love every single one of them.

We ate out every meal (for obvious reasons) and had some wonderful food. At Joe's Crab Shack, I got the Surf and Turf burger which is without a doubt the best deal on the menu. Where most dinners are in the 15-18 dollar range, my burger was just under 9 and came with a quarter pound beef patty, a side of onion strings, an order of popcorn shrimp, the usual hamburger fixings and a side of fries. The hamburger meat itself was not all that great, but even if you wanted to leave the meat off the burger, you had plenty of toppings, food and flavor to fill you up.

One of the most interesting, scary and frustrating parts of the trip was when my iPhone crapped out on me. Saturday afternoon, the screen went black and there was nothing I could do to get it to come back on. I couldn't take phone calls, place calls, or really do anything with it at all...it suddenly became a really expensive paper weight with a really expensive data plan attached to it.

When we got home Sunday night, I did a quick google search for something in regards to iPhone and black screen and found out about the "Black Screen of Death" (a play on the Microsoft BSOD). Turns out it is not really a screen of death, just a signal to reset your iPhone by holding the home and power key for 10 seconds. The phone resets and comes right back to life. This was great to know once I got home, but could have really used on saturday when I wanted to use the phone to catch up on scores while we were at the haygood's show (which turned out to be really really amazing).
