I remember when the HTC_ime was all the rage with the OG Droid. Thought it was decent. Really the only other keyboard I've used. Bought Slide It when it was on sale real cheap but never really used it.

Do you miss the long press for input change? Is there a ROM that brings this back?

I have them, I don't use them. Sorry about the long press thing, it gone forever. ICS introduced new copy paste that uses the long press. It isn't coming back for keyboard changes.

Morning folks! Sleepy weekend in here for sure.
Well, not terribly unexpected, but impressive nonetheless:

Only downside is, will he finish college or go to the NFL early?

Edit: Wow! That is one tear jerker of an acceptance speech.

Morning all... Been outta touch a little, as we just got home last night from our home finding trip to Austin. We put an application in on one place, and paid our deposit... Should know a final answer on Monday.
Much bigger for less $....

uploadfromtaptalk1355052480299.jpg

Also, we kept hearing that Austin is great, everyone loves and recommends it... Although driving/traffic is horrendous. Too true. But it was really good that we got to go. It does not feel like a concrete jungle and really gave us a great chance to look around town, see the new office etc.. But also means that our move is in less than 3 weeks too.... Lol

Going to have to play catch up in here but just wanted to pop in and say hi!

Hi! I have a similar issue with Swype, even on their newest beta, it would not work in those environments either. I was hoping swift key had fixed that issue, like you , I am hoping it is something they can correct. It makes it a PITA. LOL

I miss the long press too, but I keep the ime switcher up so I can go back and forth between Slide It and Swift Key.

Ryan, looks like a great house. Only two things missing to establish that you are a "local" (and the neighbors will welcome you with open arms):

Don't take this the wrong way Capn but I actually though about how nice it would have been to have a Great pilot on 3 of the 4 flights we took... And wished it had been you flying us this weekend. Took a picture for ya just to prove I was thinking of you....
uploadfromtaptalk1355109422853.jpg
Seriously tho, I have not flown since 1998 and only 1 of the 4 flights was smooth. At all.
We had several bumpy takeoffs and a lot of bounces on touchdown. 2 flights so rough the overhead bins were popping open with stuff coming out during landing, one flight that hit turbulence good enough to throw the attendant down the aisle on his back, several conversations over the intercom that passengers should not have heard, and a close call on the ground in Austin with 3 airplanes taxiing to the same spot at the same time...
On 1 of the flights apparently the cabin channel was on during take off, after a pretty good bounce... (yes, I said on take off...) we all heard an Oops come over the intercom. And on the same flight, the pilot or copilot apologized Before we landed about a rough landing... That was encouraging.
And then on the last flight, after a 3-bounce landing, the pilot welcomed us to Phoenix. (that's where we had just come from,) and let us know it would be a balmy 72 degrees... And thanked us for flying American Airlines... Then another voice came on the speaker to apologize and let us know we had actually made it to Santa Barbara, it was 43 degrees, and thanks for flying Us Air express.. And that we would be landing soon... (as we were pulling up to the gate)

Anyways, I commented that we should have had Captain Ron from AF fly us... My wife agreed. Lol.

Overall it was a great weekend away! We had a great time, and are a little stressed but excited to be done with the move already!

I'm sorry you and your wife had such an ordeal Ryan, but I have to admit I was laughing so hard reading your post I had tears in my eyes and beer spray over my keyboard.

I apologize in advance if I sound egotistical, but there is a big difference in flying on a major airline and the regional "express" carriers. That said, turbulence is turbulence and I probably couldn't have done much better. (Although a bigger airplane does do better in rough air)

Other than that, I'm glad you two had a good time in Austin.

Edit: BTW, you're Premium. Blow up the size of your avatar so we can see the family!

The other thing I've noticed is that the former fighter pilots tend to be more, shall we say, aggressive on landing than the ex bomber/tanker/etc pilots.

Good morning everyone & Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating.

I went back to Staten Island to spend some time with my family for Hanukkah and got some really, really great gifts. I guess you know you are getting old when you are excited for dress clothes and ties, but its time to get rid of some of my old ones that don't fit me well anymore. Got some new awesome slippers too!

And I finally got one of those starter home-brew kits. The kit comes with a Classic American Light mix which I am going to start the brewing process tonight. Should take about 3-4 weeks from start to bottle & drink so I am really, really excited for it. Already bought their winter kit so when this is one is done I can start another one right away. Anyone have any tips / recommendations for someone just starting off? I know some people (maybe Pup?) did some homebrewing of their own.

I have done one batch of home brew and bought another... Will wait till after the move to finish it.
Best 2 suggestions I was given is if you don't already have bottles to make sure to collect ones that had a pop off top, not screw on. And to get yourself a topper clamp. The one I bought was about $35 and it sits on the counter but is really tall, so I can use whatever bottles I want in the future.
I am definitely excited to do my second batch the first one was great! Just have patience before drinking to make sure it has completely cured. It's definitely better to have a full glass of beer than of foam only!

Happy Hanakah! And happy Monday to all.... Lol

Dumb question here. Trying to set up my new surround sound system and am a little lost. Connecting the front speakers, it's supposed to go in these enclosings:

They're different from the regular speaker connectors you can see the the left. How do I connect it?

Dread, you can use banana plugs or those also unscrew and you insert wire into that notched area and tighten it back down on the wire.

Geek is right. Those are either screw-ons, or spring loaded. Pull them back to reveal the hole for the wires.

Dread, those red & black knobs should pull OUT a little, revealing a hole in the post underneath. Slide the speaker wire through the post hole and then let go

Ah, ninja'd at the last second AGAIN... story of my life...

Got that. Tried the optical in (for sound), from my TV, but get nothing. Tried a 3.5mm from my phone, and nothing also.
My guess is the old speaker cable I had for the other sound system is a no go. Not sure why?

Edit: Wrong optical input. Working now. Sorta. Some speakers a no go. May have some cable issues.
Second edit: Okay, popped in a Blu ray and they're all working. Sweet.

Alright, threw on some Andrew Bird via Youtube, and this system is friggin sweet.
Nice to have a brand name sound system and not just a cheap Insignia.
This is the one btw:
Yamaha 5.1Ch. Home Theater System with Subwoofer YHT-497BL - Best Buy
I think really good for the cost. It's no Bose, but it's just fine for our tiny apartment.

Checked the specs on that. It comes with a sound calibration microphone. Use it as it will make it much better. When I set up mine I set the microphone in my seat (the center of the seating area for the room) and it automatically balances the volume levels to each speaker for optimum effect.

It was a piece of cake for mine (Sony). Plug in the mike, set it down somewhere, and run calibration. Takes about ~60 seconds.

Thanks, Pup!
I'll have to check that out. Our living room is really tiny. I'm going through the different sound configs to see what's best. Problem is, I generally sit on the left side of the couch and I'm quite close the the rear left speaker.

Edit: Ran through it, and it really turned up the volume on the right side proportional to the left. Nice.

I did the same with my 7.1 Onkyo. Makes a pretty big difference as Pup said. It's a middle of the road system and the HDMI ports started going out last year but I love it. Couldn't see paying more for what we use it for. I just run my HDMI to TV and a single Optical over to the surround. Cleaner setup that way anyway for my situation.

Have noticed something strange this week with my new TV. The HDMI cables I have are apparently attrocious. Signal won't even cause tv to recognize a picture at all on some things and on others the picture and sound flickers constantly. I just notice it when watching 1080p content. After finding a good cable, I tested all devices and they all work with it on any port, but depending on other port and cable combos, I get nothing or constant flickering. Ordered a complete new set of 3 HDMI cables to see if it helps. If not, looks like the TV may be going to Panasonic for repair.

This is good for a laugh (outside of the fact the reporter uses that miserable DX ringtone)

Probably ninja'd on this, but Airdroid 2 is looking for beta testers. This time you can control your phone from anywhere, you don't have to be on the same wifi network. I don't have the link, but look for it and get your hat in the ring!

Yep, got my "magic" notification this morning.
Are you wiping going from previous builds or dirty flashing?
