My Fitbit Alta HR Stopped Working

I have been wearing fitness trackers for about six years.  First with the Nike FuelBand in 2013, and more recently with the Fitbit Alta HR in 2017.  There have been issues with the Fuelband, mainly from a design and quality standpoint.  But overall, fun to wear.

About a week ago, my Fitbit Alta HR died.  I had just finished the first game of a double header and wanted to see how many steps I had.  By the way, a typical hockey game, for me, generates about 2500-3000 steps.  The displayed only showed the Fitbit logo and a battery logo with an exclamation point (!),  no blinky blink from the heart rate lights, and unable to access any other information like time, heart rate, steps, etc.  I even checked the battery before the game, and with about a third of juice left, it was more than enough to last the day.

The Fitbit has been worn for two years, through many games, and a few double headers.  Never had an issue with the Fitbit.  It seems that water, or sweat, got in to the unit and shorted the device while playing hockey.

While I do not exercise everyday, I do get a good amount of 'movement' through running around at work, going to the gym, hockey, and various errands.  There is no need to constantly check if I have met my step goals for the day.  The only thing I miss is the heart rate monitor.  Oh, having the Alta HR linked to my phone was a bonus. 

So, what now?  A week into being fitness tracker free, I like it.  I am no longer 'handcuffed'.  I am not looking for another fitness tracker to replace it anytime soon.

Update:  I just checked the Fitbit site, just to see what my options are should I choose to enter this game, again.  The Alta is no longer available, looks like that model has been discontinued and replaced by the Inspire.  The other option, with heart rate monitor, is the Charge 3.  I will just wait...or just not have anything on my non-watch-wrist.

Build the Back to the Future Time Machine - Issues 063-066

A little late posting this, not the fault of the supplier or Eaglemoss.  I was on a business trip for over a week and had not have time until this week to get on this.  Let us get to it.

Issues 063-066
We start to see the exterior of the car take shape.

Issue 063 - Hood


Contents of Issue 063
Huge flat metal piece for the hood.  Also in this issue are the struts that help hold the hood up.  Wow, they are actual struts.  Okay, not gas or oil filled, but friction rod-and-tube.

Oh, and we have a introduction of the PM screw, new screw!

Issue 064 - Hood Frame


Contents of Issue 064
Ah, the hood frame, the structure that gives the DeLorean hood the distinct "X".  The hood light is a part of this assembly, which means a little bit of wiring.  Really, just routing the wire along one arm of the X.

Issue 065 - Luggage Compartment Interior


Contents of Issue 065
We are at the half way mark at Issue 065.  Like the 1955 white wall tire parts, there may be 'extra' issues in addition to the planned 130 issues.

This assembly is pretty straight forward.  For me, it seems that I was short one GP screw.  This will show in the screw count later.  Luckily, I have kept all the extra screws well organized and it was not a problem 'replacing' the GP screw.

Issue 066 - Door Catches

Contents of Issue 066
More wires!  Luckily, this is pretty simple routing of wires.

All issues in this shipment are assembled onto the frame from the last shipment.  It should look like this, or better...for you, probably a lot better.

Issues 063-066 installed
Here is a close up, albeit an out of focus photo, of the hood struts.

Hood struts at work
Fun fact that you do not care about.  I recently replaced all the struts on my car.  So, working on these struts brought back memories.  It was less than a year ago, but I have a memory of a goldfish.  Pretty easy to swap out hood struts on a DeLorean, so if you have experience doing that, this shipment of parts should be no problem for you.

Now, the screw count.  Note that this is a new screw (PM) and a shortage of one screw (GP).

55-AP, 18-BP, 2-CP, 18-AM, 12-BM, 4-EM, 4-CM, 20-DM, 3-DP, 1-FM, 3-GM, 3-HM, 2-IM, 2-EP, 18-FP, 2-JM, 3-HP, 2-GP, 6-NM, 1-MM, 4-KM, 1-LM, 1-IP, 1-OM, 1-PM

FUCK YOU, STOP CALLING ME - April 2019

Three months down and heading into the fourth month of the year

1 April 2019
  408-961-4321  San Jose, CA - April Fool, indeed.  I had already blocked this number on the Call Protect app.  So, this was intercepted by the app.  Curious as to why the call was even flagged.  At least there was no ring, or message left.  Keep calling, you will never get through.  Fuck you!

4 April 2019
  310-849-5956  Beverly Hills, CA - I waited three days for this call.  Not really. But it has been three days.  It seemed like this was going to be a daily thing.  The inconsistency kinda makes it fun.  Not really.  Fuck you!

  310-299-0499  Beverly Hills, CA - Just when you think they might be running out of Beverly Hills numbers, they call from a different prefix.  How cleaver. Good thing AT&T marked this as a telemarketer.  Not that it matters.  You know what matters...fuck you!

9 April 2019
  310-743-0258  Inglewood, CA - Nothing showed up on a quick search. This could be a legit 'wrong number', but more likely, this is your garden variety spoofed number from a telemarketer.  Fuck you!

  424-239-7363  Beverly Hills, CA - Something tells me that this call does not really originate from Beverly Hills.  That city is not that big, yet I get countless calls from different area codes and prefixes.  Fuck you!

10 April 2019
  213-880-8071  Los Angeles, CA - Getting calls all over California this month, so far.  I better not get any calls from other states.  Oh no, I jinxed it.  Fuck you!

11 April 2019
  424-239-7363  Beverly Hills, CA - Nice, a return caller.  Fuck you!

12 April 2019
  310-849-1888  Beverly Hills, CA - Too bad one cannot block an entire city from calling.  Fuck you!

  424-239-7363  Beverly Hills, CA - I thought I blocked this number.  Apparently, I forgot to.  My mistake.  Now blocked, fuck you!

15 April 2019
  310-849-2506  Beverly Hills, CA - Norte Dame is burning.  I wish telemarketers were burning instead.  Fuck you!

16 April 2019
  970-233-2961 Collbran, CO -  Oh, could this be a legit call?   I mean, how many people do I know in Colorado?  None.  So, a quick search and the first result that comes up is...


I mean, good for you, for using a non-California number. For a time, I was tempted to answer the phone.  How long a time, you ask?  About 0.68 seconds, sir.  For and android, that is nearly an eternity.  Also, fuck you!

17 April 2019
  310-849-1799  Beverly Hills, CA - No need to check, this is a telemarketer.  Fuck you!

  310-849-3597  Beverly Hills, CA - Second call, or should I say, attempt from possibly the same telemarketer using another Beverly Hills area spoofed number.  Fuck you!

19 April 2019
  310-404-8529  Gardena, CA -  Another spoofed number.  No message left.  No results from a quick search, so we can safely assume this another telemarketer.  Fuck you!

22 April 2019
  No Caller ID - Well, this is strange.  I even checked Call Protect and this was listed as "Private Caller".  No message was left, so this defaults to telemarketer.  It also defaults to fuck you! 

14 March 2019

Build the Back to the Future Time Machine - 1955 Wheels

I got two shipments this month.  Eaglemoss likes to throw in these "Special" issues.  The first two were comic books, kinda useless.  But this latest one is kinda cool.  Sure you get charged for it, but at least this is relevant to the build.

Contents of SP003
SP003 - White Wall Tire Special

This issue did not come with instructions.  Others have mentioned this, as well.  But, if you remember how you build the stock wheels, it is pretty much the same thing.  

Here are some problems with wheels in general.  In order to install these wheels, you will have to remove the stock wheels from your model.  The trouble is, it is near impossible to remove the center caps to get to the screw.  Luckily for me, I left the center caps off of my wheels in case I needed to adjust the fitting in the future.  

This center cap problem also effects the white wall tires. Once you mount the wheels on, you close off the screw with the chrome domes.  The domes will be very difficult to removed, especially without damage, once they are pressed in.

Second problem.  It is March and still quite cold.  This means that the rubber tires are hard, and the bulkiness of them do not allow them to flex.  Therefore, pressing the wheel sections into the cold hard tires is near impossible.  

I suggest either waiting for warming weather or, warming up the wheels in some warm water so there is a little give in the rubber.  I have not put my wheels together yet, as I plan to keep the Time Machine as that way it looked in 1985, when it first rolled off Doc's van.

Build the Back to the Future Time Machine - Issues 059-062

Ugh, time change.  Speaking of time, we have another shipment of Time Machine parts from Eaglemoss.

This shipment came in a larger than normal box, also very heavy.  Already lost an hour due to the stupid time change, let us get to it.

Issue 059 - Bulkhead (Upper)
  
Contents of Issue 059
These are the final (I think) parts of the interior.  All we have to do is mount the Torin Blower, some hoses, and a few wires.

Oh man, the wires. This is issue where all interior comes together and finally gets mounted on to the chassis.  The wiring from back issues are plugged into the board.  While there are only a few parts to this issue, you will spend a long time plugging in wires and making sure elements of the interior assembly line up with the chassis assembly.  Be patient.

Assembled parts up to Issue 059


Issue 060 - Roof Frame


Contents of Issue 060
Oh, big heavy parts.  Not much goes on as far as assembling here.  Just installing the front door pins and you are done.  But look how huge this is!

Bonus!  We have a new screwdriver!

Issue 061 - Luggage Compartment Frame

Contents of Issue 061
Another heavy part, the front section of the frame.  The frame sections get merged and you kinda get a feel of how big...and heavy...this thing will be.  

Oh, another bonus!  Back to back bonuses.  I can only be this excited, because we have a new screw, the OM.  This heavy duty screw is used to secure the front and back frame sections together.

Issue 062 - Windshield 

Contents of Issue 062
Our first window piece.  Take care in installing this, make sure you do not slip and gouge the plastic windshield.  

It also comes with a rear view mirror.  The actual Time Machine does not have a rear view mirror. There is no need for it as the bulkhead blocks the rear view.  Anyway, I left mine off.  I also broke it while trying to install it...so there is that. So, be careful install this part, too.

Update: I fixed the rear view mirror and installed it.  But, I am too lazy to update a photo. 

Fun fact: The rear view mirror on my car broke off one day. I thought I reattached it correctly, and one day, while driving, it fell off.  So, I have very little luck with DeLorean rear view mirrors...at any scale.

Assembled model from Issues 060-062
Now, the best part...screw count.  I must remind you that there is a new screw in this shipment (OM from Issue 061)

55-AP, 15-BP, 2-CP, 13-AM, 12-BM, 4-EM, 4-CM, 19-DM, 2-DP, 1-FM, 3-GM, 3-HM, 2-IM, 2-EP, 18-FP, 2-JM, 3-HP, 3-GP, 6-NM, 1-MM, 3-KM, 1-LM, 1-IP, 1-OM

04 March 2019

FUCK YOU, STOP CALLING ME - March 2019

March.  March away from that phone, because it is a telemarketer calling

4 March 2019
  310-627-4642  Compton, CA - Compton?  Well, shit!  Fuck you!

  310-627-4642  Compton, CA - Wait, you called twice?  Well, fuck you...twice!

5 March 2019
  813-694-7239  Florida - This came in on the phone as "Unknown".  But, I looked in the Call Protect app and it shows the number as listed.  Did you really think disguising yourself as 'unknown' would make any difference?  Fuck you!

6 March 2019
 310-939-1813 - Redondo Beach, CA - Three days in a row.  I hope they call everyday of the month.  Fuck you!

7 March 2019
  310-325-6401 - Lomita, CA - Where the fuck is Lomita?  Well, there was a voicemail


310-325-6401
Lomita sounds like an acronym for a robo-telemarketing computer.  L.O.M.I.T.A.  Yeah, I do not have time to think of what it stands for.  Fuck you!

8 March 2019
  310-849-5898  Beverly Hills, CA - Sweet!  Five days in a row.  Left a voice mail for some credit card something.  Whatever.  As if I have any credit.  Fuck you!

  310-285-9242  Beverly Hills, CA - Second call of the day. Perhaps making up for tomorrow?  You guys have called on weekends before.  I wonder if the time change will mess with your system.  Fuck you!

12 March 2019
  310-956-1244  Hawthorne, CA - Getting quite a few 'random' numbers.  Mind you, these are still telemarketers.  Are they starting to run out of 'Beverly Hills' numbers to spoof?  Fuck you!

  310-956-1244  Hawthorne, CA - Two calls in one day.  Must be important...NOT!  Fuck you!

19 March 2019
  310-448-2048  California - This came in as "unknown".  But using Call Protect, I found out the number.  Fuck you!

20 March 2019
  310-994-778  California - So, I got a voicemail from these guys.  But, the phone did not even ring.
What is this witchcraft?  Obviously a telemarketer, but how did they bypass the calling and went straight to voicemail?  Fuck you!

21 March 2019
  310-849-8057  Beverly Hills, CA - It has been a while, Beverly (we are on a first name basis).  Fuck you!

22 March 2019
  646-794-7536  New York, NY - Definitely a robo-telemarketer.  Left a message in a foreign language.  Pretty pointless if you ask me.  1. I do not answer calls from the unknown.  2. If the message is in some kind of foreign language, how the fuck am I supposed to 'buy into' whatever you are trying to sell.  Fuck you!

  310-373-6462  Redondo Beach, CA - First, New York...now, California.  Coast to coast telemarketers.  Fuck you!

23 March 2019
  626-576-5247  Alhambra, CA - Remember this jingle?  "Me and Alhambra Water making friends".  This could be a wrong number, but just to be on the safe side...Fuck you! 


24 March 2019
  408-961-4321  San Jose, CA - One of those rare Sunday calls.  Fuck you!

25 March 2019
  408-961-4321  San Jose, CA - Second call from this number. Could be legit, most likely not.  Too lazy to look into it.  Maybe leave a message.  Until then...fuck you!

26 Mach 2019
  210-880-2755 San Antonio, TX - Who, in San Antonio, would be calling me?  Other than telemarketers, no one.  Fuck you!

  240-203-6145  Maryland - Well, this is random.  Again, why would anyone from Maryland try to contact me?  Again, fuck you!

  408-961-4321  San Jose, CA - Third call of the day...and third call from this number.  Perhaps I should block this number, since answering the call is totally out of the question.  Fuck you!

27 March 2019
  800-221-6659  - Hmm..800 number.  Nothing came up on a quick search, but signs usually point to telemarketer. Fuck you!
 
  310-695-1548  Inglewood, CA - Dude!  What the fuck is up with all these calls this month?  Obviously, there some kind of astrological occurrence that I am unaware of.  Fuck you!

Build the Back to the Future Time Machine - Issues 055-058

Another delay in shipping as, according to some sources, there were shortages of Issue 56.  Well, I guess they have their supply and the next shipment was received.  Only month (January) delay, much better than the gap...crevasse...that was between the late June and December shipment.

Issues 055-058
Lots of small parts in this shipment. Oh, also, this parcel came with another binder.

Issue 055 - Lower Bulkhead

Contents of Issue 055
This parts include speakers that are located behind the seats.  I did not know there were speakers located behind the seats.   In a DeLorean, the speakers are located on the inside of the B-pillar.  Maybe they upgraded to better speakers and placed them just behind your butt for better bass.

Out of focus photo of speaker behind passenger seat
I am not sure there is enough room on a real DeLorean to place speakers behind the passenger seat. They would have to move some things around to accommodate. 

Issue 056 - Circuit Board

Contents of  Issue 056
Yay, more wires.  But this time, you get to plug them into the circuit board. 

Focus, damn it!
Actually, this is a good place for the circuit board.  The area behind the passenger seat is where the fuses and relays are. So, this kinda looks like the fuse and relay box.  Too bad my photo is way out of focus.

Issue 057 - Upper Bulkhead

Contents of Issue 057
This gets Issue is pretty exciting.  The upper bulkhead gets a lot of screen time in the movies, so everyone recognizes this area of the car.  Simple assembly here, pretty straight forward.

Kinda in focus
Most of the upper bulkhead is complete after this issue, there are still a few elements that are missing.  Which brings us to...

Issue 058 - Flux Capacitor

Contents of Issue 058
A lot of people are disappointed in how the flux capacitor is represented in the build.  I would have to agree, it is not that great.  It gets most of the elements and details but leaves a lot to be desired.  For such and icon part of and iconic car, they could have done a lot better.

Uh, okay
Well, there you have it, a flux capacitor.  While it is supposed to make time travel possible, needless to day, this time machine, with this flux capacitor is not going anywhere.

There are a few more pieces that need to be installed before, the bulkhead gets mounted to the interior.  Those parts will come in the next issue.  Until then, here is your screw count up to Issue 058

54-AP, 15-BP, 2-CP, 12-AM, 11-BM, 4-EM, 4-CM, 18-DM, 2-DP, 1-FM, 3-GM, 3-HM, 2-IM, 2-EP, 17-FP, 2-JM, 3-HP, 3-GP, 3-NM, 1-MM, 3-KM, 1-LM, 1-IP

01 February 2019

FUCK YOU, STOP CALLING ME - February 2019

Well here we go, another month and no time wasted.  It had been over a week since our last call.

 1 February 2019
  213-807-1922  Los Angeles, CA - At least this call was intercepted by AT&T.

213-807-1922
I wonder if they will call repeatedly on Groundhogs Day.  Fuck you!

4 February 2019
  310-849-5651  Beverly Hills, CA - Early morning call at 7:06.  They did leave a message:

310-849-5651
By the way, this is the same robo message left by multiple callers.  Well...partial message, since I have a long greeting to my voicemail.  That generally cuts off most of the robo messages and lets me know if 'missed' calls are legit.  Fuck you!

7 February 2019
  310-849-6415  Beverly Hills, CA - Oh, we all know who this is...I mean, we do not know who it is, be we know who it is.  Fuck you!

10 February 2019
  310-547-8135  Los Angeles, CA - Point to AT&T for flagging this one as a telemarketer.

310-547-8135
Keep in mind that this call came in on a Sunday at 11:03.  I mean, what if I was at church...not likely.  If there was a god, there would be no telemarketers.  Fuck you!

11 February 2019
  310-849-8376  Beverly Hills, CA - Something about these Beverly Hills numbers allow them to sneak pass the AT&T Alert system.  Fuck you! 

12 February 2019
  443-853-8092  Maryland - Not one...

  443-853-8092  Maryland - ...but two calls from this number.

443-853-8092
Both calls caught by Call Protect...and labeled by AT&T Alert!  Bam, bitch!  That is a double sack!  fuck you!

13 February 2019
  310-849-8851  Beverly Hills, CA - This call slipped through the cracks.   Oh no, I did not answer...just like ever suspicious call, I ignored it.  Fuck you!

  310-849-9791  Beverly Hills, CA - Two calls in less than an hour.  The day is young...bring it on.  Fuck you!

15 Februray 2019
  849-949-4755 Dominican Republic - No kidding.  Someone from, or pretending to be from, the fucking Dominican Republic called me.  I shit you not.

849-949-4755
 Like, who do I know that is from the Dominican Republic?  Better question, do I even know where the Dominican Republic is?  Fuck you!

849-947-3151  Dominican Republic - What!  This is awesome. Not only getting more than one call today, but more that one call from the Dominican Republic.

849-947-3151
Did they run out of number from the US to spoof or call from?  Fuck you!

18 February 2019
  310-849-6976  Beverly Hills, CA - Ah, good old Beverly Hills!  None of that 'Santo Domingo' bullshit.  Oh, they left a robo message:

310-849-6976
I mean, it sounds legit, right?  Of course not!  Fuck you!

  510-906-2793  Alameda, CA - Interesting.  Hey, today is supposed to be a holiday of some sort.  Fuck you!

19 February 2019
  310-598-4832  Beverly Hills, CA - Oh, I guess they ran out of 849 prefixes and had to spoof some other numbers.  Fuck you!

  559-884-5930  Riverdale, CA - This was intercepted by AT&T Alert and branded as a Telemarketer.  I am too lazy to take a screenshot, but just take my word for it.  So, thumbs up to AT& T, and for the telemarketers on the other end, the usual...fuck you!

20 February 2019
  310-849-3689  Beverly Hills, CA - Okay, I guess there are still some more 849 prefixes in the Beverly Hills area.  Good for you and fuck you!

  310-849-1000  Beverly Hill, CA  - Great number.  Makes it look so official, like it is coming from some place important.  Good try, fuck you!

25 February 2019
  310-849-6449  Beverly Hills, CA - Starting the week off with another spoofed number from Beverly Hills.  I wish it was some luxury retail brand calling me about some luxury item.  But, no.  It is some robo telemarketer, as usual. Fuck you!

28 February 2019
 302-232-9625  Delaware - Call Protect to the rescue on the last day of the month.

302-232-9625
Actually, double tagged as AT&T Alert label this call as "Fraud Risk".  Fuck you!

  310-255-2535  Santa Monica, CA - Who the fuck is this?  Telemarketer, that is who.  Fuck you!

06 January 2019

Build the Back to the Future Time Machine - Issues 051-054

Finally got a new shipment of parts! 

Well, it has been a quite a while.  How long, you ask?  Five months.  My last (real) shipment was from July 2018, Issues 047-050.  This new shipment was received in December 2018.  I was out on holiday most of December, so here we are in January with this update. 


Issues 051-054
More fun wires and for the interior and finally a place for the passenger to sit.

Issue 051 - Passenger Seat

Contents of Issue 051
If you remember way back in July, we worked on the driver's seat.  This is exactly the same.  But, there is a difference between the driver and passenger seat.  The detail of the folding lever is correctly molded on the outside of both seats.  So, 050 is the driver's seat and 051 is the passenger seat.

Issue 052 - Driver Side Door Sill

Contents of Issue 052
Oh looky, more wires.  This is the set of wires that lay across the door sill.  You also have the the parking brake.  Yep, while most cars have their parking brake handle at the center console, the DeLorean has the parking brake handle located on the left of the driver.

Issue 053 - Passenger Side Door Sill

Contents of Issue 053
Surprise, more wires.  The passenger side has the bonus of a corrugated tube that runs beneath the wires. Like the driver side these should be the last of the wires in the cabin...until we get to the...

Issue 054 - Bulkhead

Contents of Issue 054
While there are no wires in the parts, you will have to deal with existing wires. But this is when it gets exciting again.  The rear shelf of the DeLorean was (rumoured to have been) designed to carry a set of golf clubs as the bonnet was to small and shallow to fit anything thicker than a pizza box.

The bulkhead is where some of the cool stuff is in the interior of the Time Machine. There will be lights in the future...which means more wires.

Assembled parts up to Issue 054
Not too bad.  The interior is slowly...and I mean slowly...coming together.  Hoping the next shipment will arrive on schedule and not half a year later.

Fun fact:  John DeLorean was born on 6 January 1925.  Did I just happen to upload this post on 6 January, at 19:25?  Maybe.

Oh, I have waited since summer for this.  Screw count!

49-AP, 12-BP, 2-CP, 12-AM, 11-BM, 4-EM, 4-CM, 18-DM, 2-DP, 1-FM, 3-GM, 3-HM, 2-IM, 2-EP, 16-FP, 2-JM, 3-HP, 2-GP, 3-NM, 1-MM, 3-KM, 1-LM, 1-IP

FUCK YOU, STOP CALLING ME - January 2019

It sure had been a while.  Well, not really.  I have been on holiday and had my phone turned off for most of December.  You know, too cheap to pay for roaming charges.  So, there is no telling how many times the telemarketers have tried to contact me.  But here we are, as the saga continues.


3 January 2019
  424-375-2327  Gardena, CA -  First call of the new year.  How exciting is this?  I am sure this is the first of many to come this year...heck, it should be the first of many to come this month. So, fuck you!

4 January 2019
  206-480-1729  Seattle, WA - Wait, Seattle?  Is it the new NHL team calling me with a job offer?  I could be a scout, coach, or general manager.  Wait, no...it is a telemarketer.  Fuck you!

  213-807-5417  Los Angeles, CA -  Could be a legit wrong number...

  213-807-5417  Los Angeles, CA - ...but they called twice in less than a minute, and did not leave a message.  Sure that totally sounds like a wrong number, but we know how telerobomarketers work.  So, just to be safe, fuck you!

  310-978-4499  Hawthorne, CA - Yeah, I am going with spoofed number on this one. Fuck you!

  310-849-7770  Beverly Hills, CA - No speculation here, this definitely a spoofed number.  Fuck you!

  310-849-9876  Beverly Hills, CA - These last three numbers have pretty cool 'last four' digits.  Nice and easy to remember, so that makes it easy for me to ignore.  By the way, they seem to be really poring it on thick, three days in a row with three calls.  Fuck you!

  505-666-3675  Santa Fe, NM - Kudos to AT&T

What a lovely sight.  Love it when the phone and/or provider intercepts the call.  Even better, they branded the caller as telemarketer.  Ha, fuck you!

  410-826-0092  Baltimore, MD - Holy shit, is this going to be a new thing from AT&T?  I love this!

Oh...and, fuck you!

17 January 2019
  310-849-2409  Beverly Hills, CA - The phone is still ringing as I type this, I wounder if I can get to the end before they...ah, shit...not fast enough.  Fuck you!

  310-849-2409  Beverly Hills, CA - Oh shit, they called twice in less than a minute.  I should have been able to finish typing.  Guess I need to work on my typing skills.  Fuck you!

  310-849-4275  Beverly Hills, CA - Today is a holiday.  But do not let that stop the telemarketers:

310-846-4275
...calling at 7:37 in the morning.  Fuck you!

  510-906-2690  Alameda, CA - Three things Alameda is famous for.

  • Used to be the home port of the USS Enterprise CVN-65. 
  • Same Naval Base was used to film Matrix Reloaded, freeway chase scene.
510-906-2690
  • Home of telemarketers.
Fuck you!

  926-273-8032  Sacramento, CA - Third call today.  At lease they are from different numbers. Even better, from three completely different regions (of California).  Fuck you!

23 January 2019
  310-849-2769  Beverly Hills, CA - Did you know today is National Pie Day?  Obviously there is a Pi (π) Day, March 14 (3.14), so that should also be pie day.  It makes no sense that a random day in late January is pie day.

Oh, telemarketer. I totally forgot. Fuck you!
