Oh double post, but we lost someone from the VW community on Monday - just found out yesterday. 31 years young and a great dude - met him once or twice, but chatted with him a bunch online. So sad to see people go so young and he had a gorgeous car as well. Just remember to cherish every day.

We joke that we didn't camp, we played house. Had the camper (small house) and golf cart (small car) for making our way around the campground.

We were apparently right in the middle of several storms, literally within a couple of miles on either side. We got nothing except light rain but you could see the heavy rain and lightning on both sides of us.

As for the hit or miss rain, yeah...I've seen that all my life too. Living in Mississippi for a long time, we would see strong storm lines cross the Mississippi River and just completely die in the delta before the rain ever got to us. So I feel your pain. We've actually gotten a good bit of rain the last week, so I didn't miss it too much yesterday.

Money is out of my account (no transaction though) and my Wallet order moved to the top of the list with an order date of 7/18. Hopefully my N7 gets on a plane for delivery tomorrow.

Good morning all. Just woke up from sleeping 12 hours. I don't mean to one up traveling stories, but yesterday? I first flew all night from Tokyo to Detroit. Then to get home I flew to Denver then Salt Lake City then Grand Junction then drove 1.5 hours home. Had dinner and a glass of wine with the wife then crashed.

Now I'm wide awake and can't wait to flash JB 3.7!

Will do, thanks. He was tickled last night when I showed him all the posts where you folks wished him Happy Birthday. It was really fun to see. He sits on my lap a lot when I am on here and knows most of your avatars so its cool.

BTW, your the lady with the smashed face

I don't see that as one upping anyone. You're flight schedules and travelling hours are really kinda crappy from my point of view. Then again, I don't know how any of you fly that much. I had an easier time this round with some help from my new friend Bonine but I can still feel every freaking little change in everything when we're in the air and can't hear a darn thing between takeoff and landing

Just to change topics for a MOMENT:

Is everyone here having reasonably moderate success with the FC02 radios who are on it? I'm on Android 4.1.1 but still have the EK02 radios. They work quite well for me. I suppose I could always flash back to them if FC02 is worse... but wanted your input as to whether I should even bother flashing the newer ones.

Thanks!

Back to your stuff, sorry to interrupt

No good can come from a company stating their political stance on controversial issue....so why do they continue to do so?? SMH

You are a company. Not a person, but a collection of people. The CEO's view is most likely not consistent across every employee there. So keep it to yourself. You aren't going to gain any customers by coming out in support of or against abortion, gay marriage, etc...but you probably will offend some that will call for a boycott either way you go.

So pretty excited, a squadron of F-22s are in Savannah at the Training center for the next month. Get to look forward to lots of fly-overs as my office building is on their preferred approach path. As an Aero-Engineer who chose the field for my love of aircraft, I'm pretty stoked about it.

Pup- It's a navigation app, but it gathers its maps from the users of the app, by tracking where they go.

That's cool. I'm in the flight path for when the do Flyovers at Gillette Stadium. Whenever they have a flyover they literally fly directly over my house at what seems like treetop level. And every home opener I forget to pause the DVR and wait outside for it to happen.

They're just putting it through its paces. "In their latest famous drop test video, SquareTrade is pitting the Nexus 7 against the new iPad in an epic battle to see who can withstand the most abuse. Spoiler alert: the Nexus 7 wins every single one."

Thanks folks!

EDIT: Is there any tricky process to flashing the radio zip? Anything to clear out? Or just flash it and it overwrites the old ones?

Pup, do you plan to unlock and root off the bat?
It really is super easy. Haven't confirmed if I retain my Play Store credit, but I'd still recommend doing it asap.

Yeah if you are going to unlock, waiting makes no sense.

I like the way you think Pup.

I wasn't able to ship Evan's gift yesterday, but got it out today. Doesn't compare to a N7, but I hope he likes what I got him. Read the card to him after he opens the gifts.

That's awesome CaptainRon.

For folks unfamiliar, a few weeks ago CaptainRon asked about cheap replacement phones as his daughter's hand me down from him had a fatal mis-hap. I offered to give him my retired D2 that Evan was using but he would have no part of that. We settled on him sending Evan a pilot gift pack and he would have the phone. As far as I am concerned, Evan, and I, am making out in the deal as it will be like a secret santa.

Thank you again CaptainRon. He will call you so you can get a personal thank you.

Make sure you get through initial setup so that you receive your confirmation email for the Play Store credit. I did this, the unlocked and rooted.

Profit!

Evening All! I agree, you have to love the camaraderie here! Chief, I am not sold on the radios we are all using, FC04/FC05. Sometimes I think the first leaked radios were better. I never had grey on signal strength or wifi, but on these I have. But try it for yourself, you can always flash back. Which 3.7 are y'all flashing?

It's definitely a win-win Pup. Thank you again for the D2 for my daughter. I only hope Evan enjoys his gifts. It's been a while since I've shopped for a five year old boy.

Captain Ron, had I been paying attention to your request, I would have gladly given you the Treo From Hell (and $20 to take it away)

LOL. Thanks, but I too have an old Treo and there is no way my daughter could bear going to that after tasting Android. As Pup said, my daughter trashed my old D2 and really wanted another one. She has another year before she can upgrade so I went to the Watering Hole before the classifieds to see if I could buy a used replacement here from one of my friends. Pup wouldn't take any cash for his so I was happy to find some fun pilot gifts for 5 year old Evan in trade.

Morning everyone!
Slept in a bit, so don't have too much time this morning.
Razor, loved that video but I feel like a 7" really has the advantage solely because of its smaller size. And, knowing that a small fall that our Tab 10.1 took onto wood flooring shattered it's screen tells me it's all about how it lands that determines the damage.
