He's had his own android device since he was three. He'll be smarter than me soon enough. I'll let him get a bit older before he post's on here though.

Our kids NEVER got an allowance. We don't believe in it. They got a commission.

We printed out a chore chart outlining daily chores for each kid. If they did their chores, they got credit for that day and then got paid at the end of the chart (2 weeks, just like real people - teaches budgeting). If they didn't do the work? No moolah.

Works like a dream. Taught our kids that when you do your work you get paid, and when you don't you don't.

Going to highjack an unhighjackable thread to say: Holy Cow! There is a ton of info when you go Green! Just did my all reading. Gotta take a break. Just need to rearrange the living room cos the baby keeps resetting the wifi router and then I can hop on for my practice.

Wanna say thanks again to you all and all others in this wonderful place for helping grow me in Android and Life.

Hope everyone is having a great day.

I never "give" my kids anything. Somehow they "think" they earn it. Even if I have to make up a chore for them to do in order the get the ten bucks to go to a dance. Nothing wrong with making them appreciate the value of money and earning it. I grew up with nothing, I delivered newspapers at age 11 and gave my mother my profits to help pay for the mortgage. Life is unfair, harsh, and ruthless. I am far better off for learning that early than later.

Yeah, was similar for me, my "allowance" was earned, so more like a commission (I like that Pup!) nothing extracurricular was paid for by my parents, I had to earn it, either through a legitimate job, or taking on extra work around the house. While I felt it was unfair at the time, I was almost completely financially independent of my parents when I graduated high school. They paid for my car insurance, and brought me a bag of groceries to supplement once every two weeks, and that was it. Tuition, room, board, fees, books, food, and fun was all on me.

Thanks y'all. I think I finally got all the electronic stuff baby proofed for at least a month. It is so amazing how children learn. I remember in my Child Development classes learning this phenomena, but to live it is to know it!

Anyway, waiting for the better half to return with a tuckered baby.

Hope to squeeze in some practice and RL work in the next two hours or so...going into work at 4a PST. That is the goal. I don't clock in until 515a PST but I am of Managerial Responsibility: as in...always on the clock!

And for the record, nothing could keep me from my Watering Hole Addiction!

Following the SIII? Samsung Galaxy S III review shootout: AT&T vs. Sprint -- Engadget

Waiting to see a preview of big red. That may clinch it. ATT kind of shut me out with the 16gb and no 32gb version.

The SIII looks good. Gizmodo has a really good review on it. My friend who has been a devout iPhone user is probably getting it.

I can't wait too see what comes out towards the end of the year.

Well. Sat my nexus down after steaming some music. I stopped the song pressed home, so its not just paused. sat the phone down and 20min later the sucker is roasting. Put a fresh battery in not to long ago.

I just opened up all my recent apps and chucked them to see if that works. Could be a battery issue? Another junk battery?

This situation has got bummed

So, the long and short:
radio issues
call quality issues
heat
Battery drain. Looks like possibly two batteries (one regular one extended) have gone crap

Morning everyone! Had a nice dinner at this new French restaurant in town to celebrate (a day later). Was good and got to try some bone marrow which the lady loves. It was a nice meal but the service was damn slow.
Everyone have a great day!

I don't know why you had to go into so much detail... "Meeting" would have sufficed

Good morning all! I've got a busy morning for work - I have to visit three of our remote sites for various problems. And while I'm in one particular town, I'll make sure to stop by the hobby shop.

I have to admit, the more I use the Razr Maxx the more I enjoy it. The battery life is truly impressive. I only have to keep it (or the Nexus) until October as that's when I'm eligible for an upgrade. Spousal Unit is still happy with her iSheep 4 and won't be upgrading unless the new iSheep is something drastically different from her current device. If the Razr proves to serve me well, maybe I'll get the Razr HD?

Yesterday afternoon, I got the parts I needed to get my Blackhawk back in the air. I installed the parts and now I have to balance the head and put it back in the fuselage. I also completed building the head on my T-Rex 600, which will be my new FPV (first-person view) aircraft. We're having some friends over for dinner tonight so I'll have to hit the workshop again on Thursday.

Finally, I was asked to do a candy drop for some VBS kids this coming Saturday. I have a plane that has a drop box below it and I stuff it full of candy. The kids seem to love it, and this big kid right here enjoys it as well. I'll do my best to get some pics.

Check in with youse guys later today!

That's awesome. I assume VBS is Vacation Bible School. If so, our church is doing the aviation themed VBS as well...don't think they're getting anyone to do a candy drop though, that would be awesome!

Since you just informed me its afternoon, then yes, I am having a good day. Always better when you find out it's 12:15 but only feels like 9:15.

So, does anyone know if it's possible to replace the phone on my line with a mifi device and still keep unlimited data?

To my knowledge and experience with other forum members who have been burned by this:

If, at ANY time, you drop from a smartphone to a feature phone or other device that does not use cellular data, the data plan on that line effectively CHANGES and you will lose unlimited data. And you WON'T get it back.

Ever.

Oh boy do I have an awesome horror story involving my nexus for you guys. So last week i was at a rave friday-saturday. I lost my phone about half way through, and after asking a bunch of people and security if they found it no luck. Oh well mistakes happen it's just a phone. So the next day I get a message on facebook that someone thinks they found my phone. By this time the battery was dead so I doubted it very much, what are the odds someone i never met would be able to find a phone and match it with someone out of a crowd of a few thousand. So i tell him I lost my phone and that its a Verizon Galaxy nexus in a green case with an intel core i7 sticker on it. He proceeds to send me a picture of my phone to let me know he found it! Apparently the person who found it was a previous customer of mine from january (he remembers because i showed him all about rooting and what makes the nexus so awesome). We arrange a date and time to get the phone back to me in a few days. The next day I get a call from the person, they also lost my phone. But luckily they think they know where. Then the next day I get a message from one of my local friends who I see at some of the smaller raves all the time, and he lets me know that he found my phone in the trunk of his car. So finally after all this stress and hassle of losing my phone I got it back and in the same condition I found it, no cracks,water damage, even my information was intact on the phone.

long story short theres still awesome kind hearted people out there in the world!

I'm on the phone asking questions about this now and it appears you are correct. Still talking though, so we'll see.

Confirmed. If you replace your line with a mifi device, you lose unlimited data. Doesn't matter if you don't get the mifi from them, when they activate it, it automatically goes to a teired data plan. Makes sense I guess because I don't remember mifi's ever having any unlimited data associated with them.

I hated high school too. Couldn't stand it. Was the most miserable part of my life. I graduated in 1990 and we haven't had a reunion which is fine with me. And if they did, and didn't tell me, that's okay too.

Yup, it's the Vacation Bible School kickoff for a club member's daughter's church. One of my flying buddies is bringing a trainer aircraft and is gonna let the kids fly. I was asked to bring my candy bomber so it sounds like a lot of fun for the kids. I'll see if someone can capture some pics. And if I have some time, I'll stick my little keychain cam on the candy bomber and see if I can get video.

I didn't mind high school itself. It was the other kids that made it miserable for me.

I guess I can say the same thing... I didn't mind the school per se but the rich, snotty, cruel kids is what made for a miserable experience. I woke up *every* day trying to find a reason not to go to school. I haven't talked with anyone from high school since graduation day and if I never saw a single one of them again for as long as I lived, I'd be fine with that. Wow, I just touched a nerve for myself... is that even possible?

College, on the other hand, was wonderful and more than made up for high school. I still have a few friends with whom I keep in touch with from college. In fact, I have a very good college friend that lives in Charlotte and I'm going to see him at the end of September. He's a fellow NY Giants fan and for the first time in a LONG time, the Giants are coming to play the Panthers. And since I can now afford the occasional NFL ticket, him and I (along with his 8-year old, who's a Panthers fan) is going to the game. It's gonna be fun!
