I'm sure you'll do it with no problem. I'm a biker, not a runner, but I know how much better I perform on a sponsored ride than when I'm training. The adrenaline and camaraderie really does boost your performance.

Done.

I use Beautiful Widgets for my home screen and weather. However, I have it bring up WeatherBug for details (you set that in 'settings' for BeautifulWidgets...default is Accuweather) - radar in real time/video, weather cams, forecasts, etc. Excellent program. I don't personally care for Accuweather.
I do the same, weatherbug is better for radar and very accurate.

Antimony, have you tried Hurricane Hound? I use it and Hurricane Tracker, both have been pretty good on our Nexies.

Good Morning all! Don't forget about the laptopmag.com competition. I am a little worried, the 710 cut into the lead of the GNex overnight, and there is still almost 3 hours to go. Vote anyway you can.

So some semi bad news. The guy next to me got a Rezound. And he has solid 4G full time at his desk. So disappointing to me. I kind of knew that was probably the case, but without knowing for sure, I was able to continue on in ignorance. Considering I have an upgrade on one of my lines coming in June, this morning was the first chink in the armor of me not caring about new phones...

AntimonyER, I do often have 4G drop out from time to time. Feel your pain, but fortunately DC has really solid coverage so it isn't often.
I have voted on each of the matches, and have no idea where all these Nokia fans are coming from?

I don't trust that Nokia vs. Nexus poll. How the frak did they gain like 5,500 people in 1 day?

The fact that it's on laptopmag makes me quite suspicious.

It's scripters, maybe even Microsoft employees who are multi voting.

Wondering if anyone else has noticed that certain programs that can speak things to you ( in my case, MyTracks) sound like a drunken slurred person? Other things, eg Navigation, sound normal.

Morning all - crappy morning. Hoping the day gets a bit better. Nothing serious, just a ton of stuff going on.

Had OSX running on my Netbook until I tried to install some extra Kexts and now it Kernel Panics with the SleepEnabler. Need to see if I can remove it - if not gonna reinstall it again. So close yet so far.

BTW update to Google Wallet if you need it: xda-developers - View Single Post - [APP] Google Wallet (APK: 1.1-R52v7) [09/03/2012]

Wow, it's a graveyard in here today.

AI:

Sorry to see Heejun go. Wish it could have been Deandre. I hoped against hope it would be Skylar. Glad to see Hollie stick around.

Fast forwarded through Nicki Minaj. She is hideous.

Scotty sounded great. Way to miss the fist bump with Randy, though.

The Ford music videos are so stupid. They should do away with them completely.

And when is AI going to do away with "theme weeks"? It's killing the show. Figures the one night where everyone was great was when they could sing the songs they wanted.

Ha ha.

The odds are 1 in 175,711,536.

Mathematically, if you buy 50 tickets per week, you will win it in 68,000 years.

And watch, the person who wins it will be over 70 years old. That's how it always goes.

Wow, thats insane. But the odds are so poor. And with the jackpot skyrocketing like that, there will probably be 50 people who win at the same time

I am in a pool at work with 150 people at $3 each. I have a feeling it may go up before tonight's drawing.

This is crazy.

I agree. The actual jackpot is going to be split, many, many ways. Not to say I wouldn't take cut.

I'd take a cut of it, with pleasure. Only crappy thing is that NJ takes the biggest cut of taxes.

NJ takes 10.8% in taxes which ends up at ~$296 million, but I am okay with that.

By the time the IRS and Taxachusetts was done with me, I might have enough for a coffee. JK, I'd take 10% of that amount knowing my kids & grandkids would be all set for college when the time comes.

Glad to see Heejun go. If anyone remembers, he was a total a$$ in Hollywood week and trash talked everyone else, especially the cowboy. Arrogant and due to be taken down a peg.

Nicki = silicone. I think they had a tough time shooting around her attire.

Ah, SPIT!

I was ALL ready to make my first major production using my Nexus: a time-lapse video of the sun, Jupiter and Venus setting. Things looked all go right up until it was time to attach Ginny to the tripod and start shooting.

And the clouds rolled in!

Ah well, photographers and directors have been at the mercy of nature since cameras were first pointed at the sky. Better luck next time, I guess...

Rant over: continue your deafening non-conversation in here

I just got home from the convenience store. Thirty people in line for tickets, WTF. I bought one on Wednesday, that's enough for me.

So jealous of what some of you eat sometimes. Not that I didn't thoroughly enjoy, for example, the meat loaf my wife made the other night!

Anyway, how's everybody doin' on SuperLotto Friday!?

I have to admit that Brazilian Steakhouse (called Churrascaria in Brazil) is one of my guilty pleasures. It was one of my favorite thing about flying down there.

I would absolutely waddle out of the place stuffed to the gills. Good thing you went on the 15 mile ride.

Speaking about exercise, good luck on the 5K tomorrow Antimony!

I've never been to one in Brazil but we have a delicious one by me and I can be rolled out when we are done.

Good luck Antimony!!
