We have become so dependent on these darn electronics, when they fail, they get us in trouble. I missed a meeting today because I fat-fingered it in to my calendar. Oh, I hate when that happens.
These darn electronics are not nearly as reliable as the old pen and paper, yet, we’ve grown conditioned to use them instead. It is more than fat-fingering. It’s having them mysteriously disappear from your electronic calendar. That has happened more than one time. (I think it has to do with the trend for applications to synchronize with “the cloud”. Personally, I wish there was a button that says, “I don’t use the cloud.”
The cloud has its place, but not for personal data. Yeah, it might be convenient to see your calendar on your phone and PC, but when the cloud fails you… what do you get? A missed appointment!
Like I said, it isn’t the first time. I caught one last week. I put it on my calendar over 10 days ago. After I put it there, I double checked. It was there. Then, last week, it was GONE.
I really hate cloud services.
I thought they would reorganize the Elder’s Quorum today. The released the High Priest Group Leadership, and the reorganization will take place on the 29th.
Best Fast Meeting
We had the best Fast and Testimony Meeting ever. There were only two people who veered from testimony bearing. (One, I don’t think will ever get it.) The rest were really good.
