Surf’s up! Get your snow gear on.

Aloha friends,

There’s some interesting weather happening around the country at the moment. Let’s take the weather in Spring Hill, Kansas for example. It’s cold this morning in my home town – in fact, so cold I have my thermostat set at 69 degrees, but it is only 66 degrees in the house. Apparently my furnace can’t keep up! We just aren’t built for this kind of cold I guess. It’s almost lunchtime and only 3 degrees outside; with windchill it’s -15. That’s cold enough to close a few schools in the area…the east coast is covered in snow as well.

I was talking to a friend of mine in Hawaii (did you know that I lived on Maui for a couple of years?) and she said that the waves are crashing in the north shores of all the islands. This is attracting surfers from everywhere to get in on the action!

Here’s a pic from yesterday afternoon of a 40 foot wave courtesy of @aloharoyale:

Supposedly this is the biggest surf in over a decade. That’s exciting for some, but even when I lived there, and I was in the best shape of my life, and I swam every day, I would never tackle surf like this. Maybe I’m just not built for it…but I’ve been in 10 foot surf which is HUGE. 40 feet just spells doom for a guy like me!

Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to be sitting on the beach watching this 40 foot anomaly, but alass, I’m in my office clapping away at the keyboard. Oh well, there will be time for vacation fun soon, today I just need to plan on staying warm if I can so that’s what I’m going to focus on!

What to do? It’s given me some great ideas on a few minor changes to our Mission Repair website and some pricing that was due to change. So starting today, you’ll see a wave of markdowns on a few key services and repairs (Samsung Galaxy SIII glass repair for example) so Troy and I will post those price changes today.

Stay tuned…stay warm, or if you’re in Hawaii, stay dry.

Take care, Ryan

    Samsung Galaxy S III and S IV repairs for the crafty technician. Do you have what it takes?

    Hi friends, more importantly, does Mission Repair have what you need? To fix that broken Samsung Galaxy S III or Galaxy S IV that is?

    You know us as an electronics repair center- but did you know that we supply parts for technicians and Do-It-Yourself repair “people” as well? Are you one of those brave individuals that can repair devices on your own?

    Do you have what it takes to be a "Super Technician"?

    Do you have what it takes to be a “Super Technician”?

    If so, you’re in luck. We have a long line of Samsung Galaxy S III parts and Samsung Galaxy S IV parts available for self-installations. It’s for the DIY customer that really wants to get their hands dirty, and while doing the repair themselves there’s a potential to save some big bucks!

    That doesn’t mean that we are overcharging ;-) It just means that you don’t have to pay us to install the part for you!

    Now remember that these parts don’t come with instructions, so I just want you to be aware of that. They are bulk buy parts that will arrive in brand new condition ready for you to install. We can ship today!

    So this blog is just a quick reminder for the “Super Technician” out there, here’s a list for you.

    Take care, Ryan

    Brownie + Peanut Butter Cup + Cookie = The End Of My Day

    Hello M:R Nation - 

    We have a great people employed at Mission Repair. One person in particular goes by the name of Jackie. She is able to light up every room that she walks into. But she has a dark side. I don’t know how she discovered that my kryptonite was sweet food, but she has effectively ended my work day. This morning, she brought in a pan that consisted of my 3 favorite things. Brownies, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and cookies. 

      

    Warning: Approach With Extreme Caution!

    Warning: Approach With Extreme Caution!

    When I walked by this pan, I had no chance of denying myself of its goodness. It had me at hello…As you can see, this post has nothing to do with a Macbook, iPad or Samsung Galaxy S III. Its just a simple reminder to never trust your co-workers ;-)

    p.s. Email me at troy@missionrepair.com if you are interested in this recipe. I’ll try to pry it from her hands! 

    Cheers, Troy

    Samsung Galaxy S III Repair!

    Hello M:R Nation -

    The coolest phone on the market today goes by many different names. Some call it the “GS3″ while others just simply say “S3″. I personally like to say the whole name while speaking of it, which is Samsung Galaxy S III. It comes in different colors and is provided to the public by different carriers. But the one thing about the Samsung Galaxy S III that doesn’t vary is the way the screen cracks when hitting the floor. Yes, this is a sad notion, but a true one.
