I'm sitting here watching the radar as a big blob of heavy rain split perfectly around my house, and is now reconnecting on the other side. We need the rain, and the number of times this happens is infuriating. There has to be something geologically or atmospherically significant that causes the storms to do this.

I've been popping in. I have been trying to find new homes for all the crap I had accumulated in 14 years at work.

You got a HAARP station in your backyard or something?

How One Man Faked His Own Internet Death


Quote:
What does Marc's sick and twisted hoax tell us? To not care? To not trust anything we see online? To not believe in what people ever say, even if they've been trustworthy—helpful, even—before? To not have friends? Maybe. It's the internet, your e-reputation is thrown around when people e-respect you, but easily tossed out because there's no real-world value to it.

But by doing that, it means they—the hurtful pranksters, the cynical, the awful—win. They converted you into one of them. That's not what a community is about. You don't second-guess the people you trust in your life. You don't let an asshole's mistake dull your true friend's problem. You stick around. You offer a shoulder. It's your community. It's your friends. It matters to you, even though it never mattered to them.

Wooh, got rid of a ton of old clothes from my dying chest of drawers (POS from Ikea). Separated all that I can donate. Feels good. Hopefully we can find a decent one this weekend to reclaim a bunch of space in our ever shrinking bedroom this weekend!

WOW!
I just checked my phone and guess what it said?

"Your system is currently up to date."



I guess Verizon meant May 22, 2013...

For those interested in using ParanoidAndroid ROM, I am having quite a bit of problems with keyboards. I generally only use Swiftkey and it's trying to act like it's a tablet so the keys are TINY. I'll see how much I can tolerate the stock ICS keyboard, but it's a bit of a bummer. I really like this setup.

Yeah I saw that too. The kicker for me was 60% of the stock for the IPO was provided by existing shareholders (ie Zuckerberg and. Co.) so while Morgan Stanley was buying up shares to guarantee the IPO price, facebook stockholders were basically selling off and making a killing, at the expense of the investors stupid enough to buy in.

Hello Everyone, been busy here. In the summer, we leave the beach and rent our home to vacationers. We are leaving here in the next week and that always means a very busy time. Lots to do to get the house ready for tourist season and us packed up and moved out. We also have to make sure our long term rentals and tenants are set, because we are gone for the whole summer.

BB, so glad you had a great birthday and your face to face exceeded your expectations. Sounds like you are both lucky to have found each other! Sorry to hear about your job, as others have said, when one door closes another often opens.

On an aside, did anyone get an update today? I am unlocked and rooted and running the original leaked 4.04 with the newly released 4.04 radios. Will they even push an update to my phone?

Hope everyone is having a great evening!

BB and DSB. I'm very happy you guys finally got to meet in person and that things clicked so well.

BB, I think you could have a pretty good side business making avatars for AF members! "Nobody does it quite as good as you."

And now The Droid Guy's saying it's TOMORROW!

Verizon to seed ICS update to Galaxy Nexus starting tomorrow | Android Phones, Android Tablets, News, Tech, Gadgets And More, Thedroidguy

I refuse to play this day-by-day game. If and when Verizon sends it to my phone, I'll be a happy Gnexer (I hope). But I'm not going to keep staring at my system update screen, checking for updates on an hourly basis.

EDIT: RIP Eugene Polley. That man saved me a whole lot of walking back & forth as a kid... and I am grateful.

Morning all!
So the inventor of the remote control died? Wow. We had a couple old tvs growing up that didn't have remotes. Ugh, what a pain. This clip from Jim Gaffigan pretty much sums up my thoughts on remotes:

Good morning everyone and happy hump day (to most).

LA Kings going to the Stanley Cup Finals - now we wait on the Eastern Team, who hopefully is the Devils. I'd love to see my favorite team in the Cup!

Fleet Week ships will be passing through the Hudson today - I'll grab some pictures.

For old time's sake, the infamous OTD "list" of what you cannot do to Verizon employees (also applicable to the update now in the wings):

Thanks Stigy! I wish I had paid attention and known they were coming through today. I could have gone to see.

And as a plus of not working I get to extend a trip to see my cousin graduate to now include a trip to Busch Gardens! Woohoo!!

I took this new job last year working for Norfolk Southern. They pay pretty well and the pension is great. One of the guys was driving home yesterday from work and while listening to NPR he heard a story about welding/skilled jobs in Australia. Some of these jobs are paying up to $300,000/yr. I guess they are lacking skilled workers there? Has me thinking..

Another Next Gen Nexus Rumor:

Google To Release 5 Nexus Devices On November 5th to Celebrate 5 Years of Android? [Rumor]

I agree, sounds plausible, but easily thought up and put out as "rumor".

Yep, this is yet another cash cow for defense attorneys: now two parties need defense lawyers in one case!

Now, if the driver texted his girlfriend with something to the effect of "I'm driving home, see you soon" and she kept distracting him with texts? She could be considered a contributing cause to the wreck. But then again: all the driver had to do was put down the stupid phone and NOT respond.

This will be a very interesting case.

EDIT: Deleted. Too political for this thread. [/hide]
