- A high capacity replacement battery (750mAh EC003, 3.7 VDC, 2.77 Wh) ($17 when I ordered it, free shipping) (no reviews; wish me luck) (I would have gone with the relative known quantity of the iFixit.com battery, but they’re out of stock)
- SanDisk Ultra 16GB Compact Flash card (SDCFHS-016G-A46) ($21) (better bang for the buck might have been a 32GB card, which are around $1/GB, but larger cards use more power and I kinda wanted to - maybe irrationally - keep this on the cheap side; it’s still going to have 4x the capacity it did when new)
- Some spudger tools ($7), which haven’t shipped yet and which I’m not sure are strictly necessary, given everything else I have in my toolbox.
The battery was supposed to arrive yesterday but the office was closed, so it showed up today. The CompactFlash card was always supposed to arrive today, and hopefully it will. The headphones were supposed to arrive tomorrow, but the most recent tracking information now shows them out for delivery and expected delivery today. And the old friend I was supposed to have dinner with tonight had to kick it back at least a week while he deals with employee issues.
Tonight may finally be the night I sit down and properly listen to the first TOOL album in ~13 years...
