Captain, we just got back from a graduation in Dallas and "Plastidip" spray is the range for painting wheels, grills and miscellaneous parts...I keep looking at the can of it in my shop for tools and wondering who ever thought of that, lol.

Happy to hear the Devils lost. No reason the Penguins should have the cup right now.

Morning all! Well today is looking much better than yesterday, I will say that. Although going to be raining again... We have gotten 3 inches at the house the past 36 hours, and a lot more the next two days...

So I have to be honest, I have been thinking about the GS3 lately... a coworker of mine has pre-ordered it, and it will be very tempting to me to get it if it gets solid 4G in the office... I am so tired of 100 kbps download speeds...

Let us know if the reception is any better on the SIII than the Nexus. It'd be interesting to see if Samsung is making any changes in that area.

If you haven't caught it yet, someone posted this in the Verizon forum:
Verizon Wireless Unveils New Share Everything Plans For Basic Phones, Smartphones, Tablets And More
Not sure what to think about it. I know the amount of fees we pay isn't included there (which is considerable) so don't know if we'd end up saving much. The wife uses very little data, and I don't use a ton so 4Gig between the two of us may be enough. Hmmmm
Thoughts?

Wow, thanks for sharing that link. I hadn't caught it yet. However, it's about what I figured. I might save $10/month by giving up unlimited data for a shared 4GB plan. But I gain unlimited minutes and messaging at the same time. It's a tradeoff and nothing that makes me want to jump into the ring. If they had that 4GB plan for about $20/mont cheaper than it is I might consider it. I only use 1.5GB/month and the wife might use 0.5GB/month. 4 would be plenty for us for now. Hard to let go of that unlimited data though.

I do like that mobile hotspot is included though. Finally they're confirming what we knew all along. Minutes and messaging are low bandwidth items and you can really use as much as you want and data is data no matter how you use it or from what device you use it.

Yeah, between our shared 400min, I don't think we even touch it. We text quite a bit, but not like some 14 year old.
Wife's job is starting to subsidize some of our bill since she uses her phone a lot for work.

As a side note: What the hell is this new emoticon about: ?

LOL!! I noticed that new emoticon, hilarious.

Back to topic...I get a 20% discount through work with Verizon so That $150 for the 4GB plan and 2 phones would be less after my discount...but the way they apply the discount is strange and might not apply to both lines or something. If it does we stand to save quite a bit over what we have now.

Yeah, I'm not honestly sure what her company is subsidizing. All I know is, a family plan of two smartphone users on Verizon is a ........... ton of money.

Still a hair less than ours. Well, at least we dropped cable a couple years ago so that's one less bill. Missed out on that promotion Chief brought up a year or so ago.

Pretty bummed especially because of the game yesterday. A missed call by the refs, turned into a "retaliation" by a Devil player which lead to a 5-minute major that led to 3 goals by the Kings. I don't think I've ever seen a 5 minute major called in a SCF elimination game.

Just check out the stats below - 47 penalty minutes for the Devils, 6 for the Kings. Just a bit biased there.



And then there was this - a ref setting a pick for a Kings player. Incidental contact, c'mon he was coming straight at the ref. Move out the way you idiot. This led to the Kings 4th goal.

I got in on it and then decided I wanted to save some money and dropped our text from unlimited to 500/month and surprise...the next bill was $40 higher. When I dropped the texts it took us off the promotion.

Jersey today but need to run errands so it won't be too much of a hassle anyway.

Mine too. I'm afraid to do anything with my Verizon stuff right now - I get a nice discount through my old job and will likely have quite a large jump if they take it away.

Not a huge surprise, no one thought it would really save money. I ran the numbers, and for us, two smartphones with 4GB data, our plan would jump $5 in total fees, and either another $2, or $16 due to loss of discount eligible charges (now my wife's line charge and data plan aren't discount eligible, for a total of $25. Under the new plan, her line (40) and possibly the data charge, (70), won't be discounted). So either $7 or $21 more, for a throttled data plan (albeit one I won't exceed in the near future), but with unlimited minutes (which I don't need).

I also have two extra lines that we added to get subsidized pricing on new phones for our main lines, this new plan would kill us because of those.

This plan will save money for low data, high minute smartphone users with more than 3 lines on their plan. That's about it.

Actually, for people who own 4G tablets, this could be a boon. for only $10 per month you can add a tablet to your plan.

Well...I see even with new plans like this Verizon is slow to roll it out and CSRs have no clue. The one I just talked to said it would be available by the end of the year and they haven't released pricing details yet. LOL

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't we told that everyone is going to be forced to move to a tiered data plan? That press release makes it sound like these plans will be optional, not required (for existing customers of course). I do like that hotspot is included, however.

CSR I talked with said all of the fees would be discounted for me so the plan would be $40 + $40 for the two lines + $70 for the data bucket totaling $150 and all of that at a 20% discount would bring it down to around $130 including taxes and fees whereas I'm paying $167 and change now.

If you pay retail for the phone you can keep unlimited.

I believe its only enforced on a renewed contract, not 100% sure though. Those were the rumors going around originally.

The gif was actually up about 5-10 minutes after the hit occurred. People are pretty serious on some hockey boards and reddit.

I might consider it once my two add-a-lines for upgrade contracts expire if that is the case. But that is not until next december

Yeah. I might consider it by the next upgrade becasue by that point I probably won't want to pay the unsubsidized price for two new phones and will be forced to give up my unlimited anyway.

Yeah, I think I will just keep my extra line, and use that for upgrading my main line from now on. Its an extra $14.71/mo. but considering I go over 2GB pretty regularly, and that is on 3G mostly, once I get a phone that gets 4G at my desk, the extra data will outweigh the extra cost. Unless of course they also eliminate upgrade transfers between lines that have unlimited...

Woah!!! Your wife must be 1) very surprise and 2) very happy!!! *thinks* she's train you well!!! Can I please clone you, Anti? You sound like the 'perfect' husband, lol.

I wish she would lock her car... She never does, and we had this happen two years ago, and less than two weeks later I was having to go behind her and lock the car at night.
Oh man :/ Sorry to hear that >_< YOU need to train her on locking her car!!!! It happening once, you can call it an accident, but it happening again falls on your wife being very irresponsibe. Hopefully she learns her lesson :/ Though getting a new Driver's License is a pain :/

Thanks for all the recommendations for an anniversary gift.
I think I've decided to get the gal a massage gift certificate at one of the highly rated places in town. Anyone have a recommendation for a type/style? I know nothing about them and honestly my back is so ticklish that I can't stand a massage.
This is the place I'm thinking about:
The Spa Room

Good morning, children. So my vasectomy procedure had to be rescheduled to this Thursday because of a work conflict.

So in two days, at 9:30am, I get neutered.

I just ended up getting my girlfriend a monetary gift certificate to a really good spa near us. This way she can get one of those fancy massages or a cheaper one and some product - whatever her heart desires.

Geez, I won't go into it here, but let's just say I didn't get the reaction I was hoping for. I'm sure she was just stressed from having her stuff stolen, but it was part of the reason yesterday sucked for me

Out of curiosity (if you don't mind), how old are you? Just wondering if people are getting the procedure done earlier in life or its totally random.

So Verizon's screw-them plan goes into effect the 28th of this month. I just checked my Verizon account. Through 28 days, my wife has used 0.47GB of data. I have used 74.37GB (yes, I have downloaded shows to no end, and have taken requests from others, out of spite).

I'm stuck with my good old Nexus for the rest of my days, it would seem.

32. But I think ours is a special case. She has a health condition that will make it very dangerous for her to get pregnant. So it's not so much that we hate the idea of having kids, it's more that I don't want her to die.

Thanks, yeah I'll go for that. They have some sort of email gift certificate. Really lame, but it makes it convenient. I'll be sure to shower her with some "live" gifts as well.

No. I'm downloading something now, and it's at 1mb/s, which is about what I usually pull down in the city.

My sister told me that they throttle 3G if you go too high in usage, but not 4G. She actually quit working for Verizon recently, so it might have changed within the last few months, but I don't think so.

HAHA yeah I went out and got mine and it was the nicest gift certificate ever. They put it in a box, in another box in a bag with tons of issue paper and glitter.

Guys are so easy - I'd be okay with a paper print out.

They are prohibited by the FCC Block C regulations from throttling 4G customers. They are desperately trying to get this changed, but I'm guessing by the end of grandfathered unlimited data, they are trying to reduce their risk of the Han Solos of the world

If it's okay to chime in on this, and hopefully not oversharing, I had mine done in 2007 when I was 35. We have no kids. Doc asked us if we were sure, etc., and we said we were. We had talked about getting it done for a while, and it's much easier for the man than the woman, so I had it done. It was simple and quick with a fast recovery.

This is the place I'm thinking about:
The Spa Room
Totally dependant upon what she likes. Some like relaxing massages, some like deep tissue to get the knots worked out, some like hot stones, etc. Some places will blend styles, some will not. The place I go to has therapists qualified to do several things so they offer a really unique experience.

Yikes...well, good luck with the procedure. Hope all goes well. I'll be having the same procedure done more than likely around 35 if all goes well.

Thanks, yeah I ended up just going with a gift certificate. I know she loves massages and I've "attempted" them myself. She likes it extremely tough and brutal (yes, you'll all take it out of context, just trying to figure out a way to put it ) but I don't know what in particular. She's had a couple really rough last couple weeks of work and I know she'll appreciate losing some of the tension.

I'm intrigued by all you guys having this done. Feel free not to answer, but are either of you "freezing some juice" just in case you may want kids in the future?

I brought that up to the wife and she's good with that. I want 2 kids and not 1 kid more if I can help it and the procedure for women is much more complicated, risky, and has longer recovery. Once we have our two and they're up to toddler age I should be around 35 and I honestly want my kids to be of age to be out of the house before I'm 60. So at 35 I'm done unless there are extreme circumstances. However, like you said, we will probably freeze some of my boys just in case.
