Hunger Games was great. But now I HAVE TO read the books because I can't wait for the other movies to come out. After reading those I'm going to start on the Star Wars expanded universe, hopefully in this order... List of books - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki

That was my thought too. Then I remembered he is not a JetBlue employee.

Just glad you're safe and sound. Eating airport food. Hmm, is that an oxymoron?

Default Aughhh it did it again!

My Nexus just called out to Verizon for programming... AGAIN! This is happening wayyy to often, like every 7-10 days: in fact, Tier 2 tech support told me that if my Nexus keeps trying to call *228 (or an equivalent) for programming, it'll eventually fry the SIM card.

Naturally, they can't just look into their computer system and tell my what my phone is doing, so what is their solution?

Factory reset. Of course.

They suspect that an app is wreaking havoc with the system and telling it to call out to Verizon. Well, on the other side of the reset all my apps are gonna come back so what good will THAT do?

I really, really don't want to reset my phone. Can anyone in here shed some light on what Ginny is doing?

Thanks for your concern. And to be honest, "airport food" now a days can be quite good. "Airline food" on the other hand is an oxymoron.

I am with you on the fresh seafood, we catch our own blue crabs (my favorite)and fish; clams and oysters are yours for the digging. Shrimp are very affordable, you can get them right off the boats when they come in for the day. We cooked some cobia last week like you did your cod, yum!

I'm completely incapable of catching up on multiple days on this thread. Hi again, everyone...just got done cleaning the house because my wife's mom is coming tomorrow. Ooh yay. I think it's time for a drink. In fact, the whole next week may bee one long continuous time for a drink.

Ok - well on the woman you are talking to.....let's look at this in a positive manner, she is a spring board. Brush up on male/female conversation and then move on to someone you don't know as well.

Work, sucks for most of us no matter where we are. Sorry yours is causing such a headache though.

Nah. I've always thought that 'leagues' and dating are silly. You can love across any so called social lines if you have the fortitude to stare at stupid and walk away from it.

I think I miss read your "springboard" comment then

Springboard = if I can talk to one, I can talk to another, correct? Or a jumping off point in other words

Also, BB, love the new avatar (both actually). For the request of a "throwback" one, I'd say (and maybe you've done this already) caption it with "You can take my Nexus from my cold dead hands".

Morning all!

BB- I think I have to vote for #2 as well, it seems more you.

So son's first T-ball game was last night. (last weekend's got rained out). They have fun, so that is what counts, but it is torture watching it from the stands. The rules for them make it so boring to watch. But I am not going to criticize, because I realized last night there is no way these kids could play for real yet. Also two of the coaches on my sons team are Georgia Southern Football players (these guys are huge). Problem is they can't get there until almost 7 on Tuesdays, which means for half the games they can't get there until they are halfway through... So the other poor coach was trying to do it all. I ended up helping out until they got there. I wish I had time to coach them for real, because I love to do it... Oh well soccer starts back up in the fall, thats my favorite.

Daily Steals Today Mobile

For those of you still needing more power for our Nexie's. Daily Steals has a 5000mah small charger that can charge your phone on the fly when you do not have access to electricity. I have a similar one for about 2 years and while I have not needed it a lot, It has proved useful at various times (airplanes, camping etc). They are offering it for $29.99, dual USB charging ports, tips for micro or Mini usb. I have bought other things from them, they are reliable, shipping is not fast, but the prices are usually good. Check it out if it would fit a need!

So a continuation of the story of the guy with the GNex who smoked a windows phone, but was denied the win... Microsoft owned up to the loss, and gave the guy a laptop. and a Lumia 800. And it only gets better from there... Stand up guy an excellent representative of Android, and the GNex!

Correct. We all look different but, for the most part, if you can talk to one then you can talk to another. And I will tell you that most women (the ones I have known in life anyway) think a shy man is cuter/sexier.....because we have all known one and we realize it takes a lot for you to come out of your shell like that.

Here is my Edit other levels screen settings:




Thanks for some extra input. I've done all the hysteresis, sample intervals, reset thresholds, etc. I'm now tweaking my custom levels. Yesterday I went outside in the large covered breezeway and found that it provides a very nice gradual increas in light levels from about 200-6,000 so I went out there and adjusted a level at 200 which is a tad above indoor light levels all the way to 6,000 which is a nice shady area on the edge of sunlight. Now I've got to go back in and delete the not needed levels. I was at 25 intervals but I think I can get away with 10-15 pretty easily. I'll post my tweaked levels today if I can remember.

If you read the books, you may not even want to see the movies. The first book compared with the first movie isn't even fair. Book blows the movie away, even as good as the movie was. The 2nd book is BY FAR my favorite. The 1st is in a close race with the 3rd for my 2nd favorite. I plan on re-reading the first and second books right before the 2nd movie comes out. May re-read the first one again pretty soon just to refresh my memory on the differences in it and the movie.

I feel for ya. As with the nuclear power industry, any time we have the ability to negatively affect the health/safety of the public, they want to take all those variables out of the equation or at least minimize the chances of it happening to an extremely low level and most of the time they go overboard with it. They impliment different procedures and such to minimize that risk but then will add tons of administrative controls that don't further minimize it, just make it a headache. Ramifications will come out of it I'm sure and I definitely feel your pain.

These are the settings I use. Indoors at my office you can see at the top I have 100-150 level range ambient lighting and that is from the past 2 days of watching at different times of the day and these have been bright and sunny days. I wanted that to be the lowest I could stand it to be which was the lowest minimum setting. From there I worked my way up the scale. Never saw any place I would experience anything over 10,000 that wouldn't be full sun so I made the big jump to full brightness there. Even on a bright day in a shady area, I could tolerate a 125 setting easily at the only place I could get the sensor to read in that 6k-10k range. I'm sure there'll be more tweaks. 15 levels in all right now.

Update for BB....we finally finished our wedding Save the Dates. Took some work learning PSE but we finally got it last night. I will be printing them and the address labels tonight. Side note...we ended up using 2 of the fonts from a site you all recommended so thanks for that. Not easy to make, but doing them ourselves has saved us more then $400...so I would call that a win!!
And I used a template, so we will be using the same graphic and fonts to do all of the other stationary like the invitations, menus, programs and usher cards. We should be saving an average of $200 per 100 prints we do, so that is a huge bonus in the DIY category!!
Happy Hump Day to all!!

Awesome! Feels good to save money doesn't it? Haha The wife and I did all the invites, programs, and even some of the food for the reception ourselves with the help of some family members as well. I actually thought it was a very fun experience and it saved tons of money.

Woohooo! Do we get to see them once they are sent?
Saving money is good! If you had eloped you could have saved even more!

My best friend was going to do that. Then she got a case of the guilty conscience.
Me - if I do it again it will be either a beach (in Mexico or the Caribbean) or Vegas.

as soon as we send them I can post a pic...sure!!

And although eloping would have saved money...the family would NOT have been happy. I don't think either of us would have, but the amount of $ the whole thing costs...well worth the time and effort.

Morning everyone!

Trying to decide if I want to take the time to fully polish my wheels for my car or if I want to just polish the lips and keep the center of the wheel silver to match my car.

Drinking a Rockstar Punch (my second favorite energy drink) this morning. Not sure why I am so tired - got a nice 8 hours of sleep last night, but woke up tired.

Well anyway glad its hump day! Running OSX in the VM is hanging a bit, but I figure its only cause I am giving it 1 Core and 1.5GB of RAM so hoping to get it running on my Netbook so I can give it all the resources of the machine. If not I might end up grabbing an old Macbook or Mac Mini to develop on.

Phew morning rant, but hi everyone!

Same here. Whole wedding process was a pain for the both of us. Nothing to do with us and what we wanted, but what everybody else wanted and could/couldn't attend. Started from day 1 too. One of her friends got upset because she had been engaged for 6 months and we had picked out a date a month before her wedding and we had only dated for 3 months. Wife didn't want to burn that bridge so what did we do? We moved our date to 2 weeks after hers eventhough that put the wedding 1 week after school started and my wife is a teacher and was starting at a new school. Meaning no honeymoon right after the wedding...delayed till Thanksgiving break. After that it was just a constant flood of we wanted one thing and friends couldn't do that or didn't like it, wedding planner telling my wife her ideas were dumb, etc. We ended up having our wedding the way we wanted it and we wouldn't change a thing. We didn't compromise on the things that were important but made adjustments on things that didn't matter to us but did to others. Neither of us will ever marry again unless the unthinkable happens and one of us dies, but we've both said if we had to do it again we'd do a destination wedding and invite family and minimal friends to come if they want, if not, oh well.

You'll enjoy it. You'll be glad you invested all the time and money in it in the end, just don't let the process get to ya Was getting to this point in my previous post, but in the end, do it the way you two want and don't give up anything important to you. If it's minor stuff to make a family member happy, ok, but don't let everyone else ruin YOUR (you and your bride) day.

Naturally, they can't just look into their computer system and tell my what my phone is doing, so what is their solution?

Factory reset. Of course.

They suspect that an app is wreaking havoc with the system and telling it to call out to Verizon. Well, on the other side of the reset all my apps are gonna come back so what good will THAT do?

I really, really don't want to reset my phone. Can anyone in here shed some light on what Ginny is doing?
Chief, have you updated to the 4.0.4 radios by any chance? I had a problem (not sure if it's the same as yours), when I'd wake my phone up after an hour or two and find a screen that said I'd just had a successful activation. I didn't like that and asked around at rootzwiki, and someone told me to upgrade to 4.0.4 radios. I did, and the problem went away.

+1 on that. Beautiful weather here. Upper 70's/low 80's for the next 10 days with minimal isolated showers.

Anyone else a hockey fan?

So glad the Devils are going to make the playoffs this year (pending them not losing the last 5 games). Just need to win one and the Caps lose one OR win two and we're in. Playoff hockey is one of my favorite time of the year.

Just noticed I got paid for 20 hours of OT on my last paycheck when I didn't work any :S Strange. Guess that means they'll take it out of my next paycheck

Well ladies and gentlemen we've been friends for quite a while now and I'd like to say "Thanks". The phone is indeed wonderful but it's the friendships that will outlast the phone and the friendships that I am most grateful for. I consider myself very lucky to have met all of you and thoroughly enjoy learning little bits here and there.
