So Roze got me thinking about something on G+ today. I think it might be kind of cool to have a stalker. I've never had one, and I'm very confident in my ability to protect myself if things went bad, but it would be kind of cool to say "been there, done that"

When I was overseas, people would ask me "so you're American?" When I said yes, invariably their next question would be "ah, New York or Los Angeles?"

They really didn't have much of a concept that there's this whole 3,000 mile stretch of REAL America in between

Morning everyone. Since I'm not allowed to post in PaCA, I'll make it brief. I'm very disappointed in NC, a state I called home for several years and where we got married.
Just had to get that off my shoulders.

And to those other Massholes, when we moved to NC, everyone in my school assumed I lived in Boston too. In fact we came from on of the most rural towns I've ever been in .

I was born in MN, and it's the same thing there, a lot of people know nothing except the Twin Cities. Only fellow MNers will ask where at? But I love MN, I seriously thought about going up there for a job after college (Good thing I didn't, as they closed up shop and moved production to China).

Ditto, though I never lived there. I have friends who live there, though. They had to go to NY to get married, and of course, their marriage isn't recognized in their home state. Infuriates me that they pass laws that hurt an entire group of people in the name of "morals and values".

Very much agreed, it's a shameful step backwards. We should be encouraging equality, not creating second-class citizens. I have a few friends in NC that were volunteering and trying to get out the vote, and they're very disappointed in their state.

While I have no doubt the regulars here could discuss this subject fairly and civilly, it is a lightning rod for many, and we have already had one situation where a person left the thread permanently because of this subject, and it's just not worth that. I know from that previous conversation that there are people on both sides of this issue in here, so in the interest of avoiding conflict... I say let sleeping dogs lie

<sigh> I missed that (stupid job). I'll let it lie...but not without first saying that if someone is looking for a reason to be offended, they will ALWAYS find one, whether this topic or another, even a benign one.

The offhanded comment was made by me. I have a differing view on the subject. I'm not offended by your view, but I forget that some have your view and are offended if I don't share that same view.

I booted into a previous version of linux last night at the boot menu and it worked perfectly. I did some updating while I had it up and running and also fixed and released an update to my app but didn't try re-booting and seeing if Ubuntu would run after the updates without having to boot a previous kernel.

FYI for the devs in here...do not use the following if your app will be running on anything prior to Android 3.2

Code:
Configuration config = getResources().getConfiguration();
        if (config.smallestScreenWidthDp >= 600) {
            setContentView(R.layout.main_activity_tablet);
        } else {
            setContentView(R.layout.main_activity);
        }
smallestScreenWidthDp will cause a crash in any version of Android before 3.2

Funny story, I went down to Texas to visit my sister and her family years ago. Her mother in law asked me, 'oh you're from Canada? How big is your igloo? How does seal/whale taste like?' >_>;;; I don't think she was being funny.

I think we might make a trip to the big city this weekend and stop at one of them there shoe carnivals and buy some of them fancy Nikey tennis shoes. I aint ever had no shoes like that before, we usually walk around barefeet down here in Alleybammer.

I think we might make a trip to the big city this weekend and stop at one of them there shoe carnivals and buy some of them fancy Nikey tennis shoes. I aint ever had no shoes like that before, we usually walk around barefeet down here in Alleybammer.
I'm a little fuzzy on the laws down there: If you get a divorce in Alabama, are you still brother & sister?

Hey, I'm FROM the South - I can make that joke!

Funny story, I went down to Texas to visit my sister and her family years ago. Her mother in law asked me, 'oh you're from Canada? How big is your igloo? How does seal/whale taste like?' >_>;;; I don't think she was being funny.
I did 7 years navy, but all that time was spent in a lab. But yeah, they should be more afraid of me

Ah, love the redneck jokes. Has everyone seen Blue Collar Comedy Tour? I remember the first time we watched that, was with a bunch of family, good times.

Hey guys, can I ask a serious question real quick? I'm still getting a TON of random reboots, and it seems like it's been increasing over the past few weeks. It feels like it used to happen once in a blue moon, then once every few days, then once a day, now I'm getting multiple reboots daily. It seems to be corresponding with a slow decrease in my battery life as well, I barely make it through the work day now. It's really disappointing. Do other people still have issues with these?

No, I have a release day GNex and haven't had any problems. I restart it once a month or so. Sounds like you have an app that has gone rogue. Anything showing up in battery usage data.

I get a reboot every time I use wifi tether, without fail, but otherwise nothing. I am on the first leaked 4.0.4 rom though.

Default There's a bug in the display!

This is too funny

Quote:
Reproduction: Problem occurs randomly and I can't reproduce on demand

Issue: There is a bug in the display

Correct Behavior: There should not be a bug in the display

Hardware: Motorola droid.

Issue 8999 - android - Bug in home screen display - Android - An Open Handset Alliance Project - Google Project Hosting

Some people are just really ...how should I put it...ignorant!

How a bug got into a display, Google only knows.

Same here. When I turn off wifi tether I get a reboot without fail. Only time I ever get reboots. I'm on AOKP M5 with LeanKernel 3.4.0 exp4

I have a release day GNex as well, have had random reboot issues since day one.

Razor, are you rooted and running a custom rom? If so, which one?

I would highly suggest you try a good ROM kernel combo. Most who have done this don't experience the common problems stock users do.

OK, same setup as me. Go to Settings | Battery and the top two should be Screen and Android OS, if it is anything else, that is usually a problem.

Unless you are on 4.0.4 in which case Android OS is not near the top for me anymore.

Yeah, I look at that screen all the time, usually when I'm frustrated by poor battery life. Screen and Android OS are always the top two; my Android OS is on the high end for GNex users, I think, usually 20-25%, but I've seen it in the high 20s.
