Hey everyone! Under the weather today... Love it

Well by some miracle I made my third out of 4 deadlines at work. One more will take me into October, then a relative quiet period, where I can relax and hang out here again a little more. get to buy a new phone on Thursday... Too bad its for my wife.

Hi! Dread and Razor, we have two Rokus, love them. Way more choices of channels beyond our sharp internet tv or our lg blue ray player. Don't know what we would watch without it, lol.

Sourcery question. I have been on 2.2 since its release, and love it. However in the last two days, I have had the phone restart 3 times. It has never done this before, running stock 2.2 kernel, no themes, a lot of the customization, Anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks for the tips, Copacetic! Also loved that it was free ground shipping (don't really care when it gets here). Saw a clip that it had some sort of Fox News channel. Can't wait, love watching it when we have cable so I can yell at the tv.
Picked up a frame stand to use my Flyer as a bedside clock. Looking through all of the "bedside" apps in the Play Store to use. Looking for something to display the time and weather (really nothing else). Anyone have any recommendations? Paid or free.

Anyone use exercising app?

Runkeeper vs Endomondo? Anyone have a preference or reason why? I have both installed - just not sure which I like better. Endomondo seems to have a MUCH better Android specific design and better "stopped" support, but Runkeeper seems to be the leader in the markets getting more attention and better "3rd party" support.

I just got an e-mail from Google... Make sure you have your other credit / debit cards in Wallet by October 16th... because on the 17th of October, the Pre-paid card VANISHES. You will not be able to add any more funds to it after the 17th of this month.

Thanks for the RSS Razor!
Saw the beer article and had to read it. For those looking for something similar, check out Ola Dubh: Harviestoun - Ola Dubh
I've had all the versions: 12yr, 16yr, 30yr, and a 40yr cask locally. Honestly, I think the best is the 16yr. It's not too smokey and is nicely balanced. The 30 and 40yrs are just over the top.

Morning all. Can't believe it's been 11 years, I still remember clearly that day.

Got a nasty cold, pretty much miserable. Fun.

Was a sophomore in high school when it happened. Remember it vividly, and my folks freaking out because my brother worked at the Navy Yard in DC.
Hope you feel better, Anti. Change of the seasons getting to you already?

Yeah I was a senior, in my calculus class.

Maybe, although in SE Ga fall doesn't hit for another month, right now it's still summer lite.

Never Forget. May all those who gave their lives rest in peace.

I was pregnant and 11 years ago today was my due date. My worthless now ex husband was somewhere in the Midwest (trucker) and my dad came home from Newark to make sure we had numerous routes to the hospital mapped out since I was delivering at one of the overflow hospitals on this side of the river.

Morning Nexians! I fell asleep last night fully dressed sitting against my back rest pillow....and woke up the same way when my alarm went off. Oh well. Guess bowling wiped me out, and I didn't even do that well.

Good morning all.

Eleven years ago I was home when a friend called me to asked if I was going to get activated back into the Air Force. I had no idea what she was talking about and turned on the news. Glued to the tv the rest of the day, sick to my stomach.

I was suppose to fly to JFK the following day then on to Cairo, Egypt. Obviously neither of those flights happened and I got to stay home. Friends of mine were stuck all over the globe as flights were cancelled or diverted. Some were lucky enough to be sitting in fun places like Amsterdam or Paris. Others were stranded at small airports in Canada as their flights from Europe were diverted.

I was in with a patient when another patient burst into the room and said she wasn't coming in, America was under attack. I had no idea what she was talking about and as a psychologist, I thought I had a new delusion to deal with. Somehow though, it did not fit the person who had come in the room. With no tv or radio at work, I checked the internet and there was nothing. Then I called a family member 1200 miles a way to ask what was going on and learned of the attack. I felt sick to my stomach. Having been born in Brooklyn, much of my extended family still lived in NYC and my own grandfather worked in the Trade Center in the 70's and we were able to go in them shortly after they opened. I remember talking to my grandfather after the Movie 'Towering Inferno' came out in 1974 about how safe he was in the Tower. He assured me nothing could happen like the movie depicted. A year later in 1975 there was a fire in the trade center and we were grateful it happened overnight . To this day I get upset when I see pictures of the NY skyline, with or without the towers.

I was in 8th grade at school and no one would tell us what was going on. My mom couldn't pick me up because she was involved at a school and helping coordinate parents picking their kids up and my dad worked in downtown NYC. Crazy to think its 11 years since the incident.

I love seeing all these people get together and remember, but I just wish people would be this friendly and patriotic other days of the year.

Question!

My wife and I are on a 700 minute plan and went over by 75 minutes this month. We called, and the lady told us that we can up our account to 1400 minutes for an extra $20 for this month, and then when our billing cycle is up, we can call and have them put it back down to 700 minutes.

My question is, does this affect our unlimited data? The CSR said no, but I just don’t believe it. Does anyone have any info on this?

TIA

My question is, does this affect our unlimited data? The CSR said no, but I just don’t believe it. Does anyone have any info on this?

I have changed my minutes allotment as well as added unlimited texting without it affecting my 2 year contract before, so I think you can do it. I will admit that was before the tiered plans, but I don't think you will have any problems.

My first instinct was no, but then I recalled that the last time we made any changes to our account in terms of minutes or texts was way back in like 2008. Verizon's gotten considerably more sneaky since the advent of smartphones and data plans. I'd be careful if I were you.

A few other random thoughts:

- I don't think I've used the free $10 that Google gives you when you sign up for Wallet. How do you get that? Is it possible that I won't be able to anymore since they've decided to scrap the prepaid card plan?

- This will be in the RSRSS tonight, but I want to highlight this story separately as well, I found it absolutely fascinating:

Just wondering what Rom and Kernel combinations everyone is on. Me sourcery 2.2, original kernel. I have had the phone restart several times in the last couple of days and the screen go black and not come back until a battery pull.Thinking about changing kernels or Roms, just wondering what everyone else is using.

Sourcery 2.2 and Lean Kernel 4.3.0. I like the fastcharge option of Lean, and the stock kernel doesn't have it

I kinda got a pretty good infection on my upper gum today. Waiting for Pam to get home to let me know if I should call the doctor or the dentist. Weird thing is there is absolutely no pain.

Hey all folks on JBSourcery experimental nightlies:

I'm still on 2.2. If I want to jump onboard the nightlies with 2.2.4, do I have to start at 2.2.1 and flash my way up (since it's an update) or can I just flash 2.2.4 straight from 2.2?

EDIT:

Pup: the painless ones are the worst kinds IMO. Get that checked out ASAP.

I don't know the answer to your question, but I think you should go on the wild side Chief. Back up your phone the try the update.
