Fitbit’s “Lifetime” Badges Are So, So Inane, Insulting, Irrelevant & Inappropriate.

So frigging presumptuous of stupid, bloody Fitbit to think that I was born with a bloody Fitbit on my wrist.

Fitbit has NO IDEA as to my LIFETIME. I have had a Fitbit on my wrist for 56 bloody days, That is IT. 56 bloody days.

My lifetime, to date, is 23,583 days. 23,583 days.

Stupid, bloody Fitbit. 56-days does NOT constitute my LIFETIME — you frigging MORONS.

56-days is 0.24% of my LIFETIME.

As many of you have sussed out, I already hate my inaccurate, Fitbit Ionic — and plan to get rid of it in the next 34-days. This is the last bloody straw.

Stupid Fitbit!

I Got A Fitbit “Skyscraper” Badge For Climbing 100 Floors Yesterday. Their “Ferris Wheel” Was Too Premature.

Yes, 100 floors — that is about 1,000′ vertical feet.

I am happy. I know I have climbed more than that — hiking in Acadia or Monhegan Island but I don’t have badges from those.

I kind of knew I would reach 100 — because I have modified my exercise regime. I need to lose some weight. It is no longer funny. I am more bloated than Drump.

Anywho.

Tomorrow is my day off when I rest my aging, aching muscles.

Maybe I will try again on Sunday or next week.

Fitbit Sent Me This “Ferris Wheel” Badge For Climbing 75 Floors In A Day — But, I Am NOT Done For The Day!

I despair with Fitbit.

Today was NOT a good Fitbit day. I discovered, all on my own, that the latest firmware caused by Ionic to underreport GPS mileage. I was immediately told it was a known problem! Jeez. GPS mileage is pretty basic. You would think they would test that …

Then, this badge. I should be chuffed. No, I am NOT!

Why, I got it at 8:42pm today. I am not sure about YOU, BUT I do not go to bed for another 5-hours. 5 hours. I will climb at least another 10 floors.

What can I say. Climbing stairs is my thing.

One of these days I will have to try for 100 floors in a day. I can do. Piece of cake.

Fitbit Sent Me This “Hot Air Balloon” — What Are They Trying To Tell Me?

by Anura Guruge


Click images to ENLARGE.


That is NOT in a lifetime! Jesus wept. A lifetime. This is why I don’t like Fitbit. They are NOT too bright.

According to their APP I did 253 in 7-days last week. I have done 225 floors in 4-days this week. That, per my math, is 478 floors in 11 days — 43.45 floors a day. So, I would do 2,000 steps every 46 days.

So, are they telling me that I have only lived for 46-days.

Stupid Fitbit!

by Anura Guruge


IF unlike I, you do not follow U.K. news you might have missed this. Ameteur choir of British National Health Service (NHS) employees wins the 2015 Christmas #1 spot with “Bridge Over You”. All proceeds to CHARITY. Even Bieber pulled for them.

Great story. Very heartwarming. Very British. Shows everybody in a GREAT Light. A lovely way to wrap-up Boxing Day.

So I share it with you. Two videos, both (of course) on YouTube. Click to access.

I still can’t establish by Devanee, who did attend, as to how many other ACS kids went. All I know was that it was a full, full-size school bus. Obviously I can’t also determine whether it was open to all or only selected kids were allowed to attend — and, of course, parents had to consent to it.

Since I could not get her to talk to me about it, I got her to write a 4-page report. She did that first thing this morning after she got back from our run (or my run, her walk) up Prospect Mountain Hill. Per her report there were 40 school buses there. She had claimed that it was broadcast live on ‘radio’. I couldn’t find it and I checked NHPR and YouTube.

Devanee wrote, the following () about ‘Lizzie’. She was a featured speaker and I could find a video of her from this same event — last year. That follows (↓↓). This is good. I am glad. All of this is great stuff.

Amazon, Amazingly, Sends Us Panasonic Lumix ZS20 Digital Camera Replacement Within Week. Kudos. Thank You.

Cap Started To Stick … January 14, 2013.


Thank YOU, Amazon.com. You continue to excel and amaze.


Deanna, to her intense joy, got a new replacement Panasonic Lumix ZS20 Digital Camera from Amazon yesterday, Saturday, January 19, 2013, through the U.S. postal service mail.

It was exactly a week since she had shutter problems with the last one. That was last Sunday, January 13. I had filed a return request that day and printed out the return barcode.

But, here is the kicker. Amazon printed their USPS mailing label that very same day — 4 days ahead of them physically receiving the return, which was Thursday. So, basically Amazon had sent us a replacement just on my word that I was returning the defective one. Yes, I know that Amazon has access to many of my credit cards and that I also have a number of Amazon credit cards. So, yes, they could have charged me and tried to collect payment. With Amazon it goes further. As I did mention, at length, in my last post, Amazon maintains a painstaking ‘bread crumbs’ history of ALL of ones interactions with them, over the years. Based on that they have some ‘scores’. I for one do nearly 95% of my shopping on Amazon. I did all of my Christmas shopping, in one go, at Amazon.

So Amazon takes good care of us, and we are fiercely loyal to them. Cuts both ways. So, this was just kudos to Amazon, not that they need good words from me. What I kick myself is that I don’t own Amazon shares. Was very stupid of me. I had got so burned with Internet stock, that I had, on principal, stopped buying them. Amazon should have been the exception.
