Thats a bummer Anti.

Have you checked to see if a replacement screen is costly / difficult to perform?

That's unfortunate.
I would see what a replacement screen would cost versus buying a new one. At least it's cheaper than many other good tablets.

Yeah the problem with it being so cheap, a replacement screen costs over 50% what the tablet cost. I think we will just use it as is for now.

So had some excitement on my way into work, my carpool partner hit something on the way in, I was kind of dozing in the back seat, scared me to death. Was too low to the ground to cause body damage, but did peel the underbody panel back so it was dragging the ground. Well I'm awake now!

Yowzers! Glad you're okay, Anti.
Yeah, when I called Samsung about getting a screen replacement for our Tab 10.1, first the guy had no idea (ugh, idiot), second he said "something" like $350-$400!
Needless to say, I did not have the screen fixed.

Wow, glad you didn't get hurt Anti!

Success! After going through Jelly Bean and ICS ROMs, the gTablet finally booted up a Honeycomb ROM! Now let's see what damage I can do with it

Glad the honeycomb tablet is finally working... I think. :-)
Morning all.
Busy week at work, but feeling like there are some things set to rest finally. Funny how I feel like my entire time in Austin has been IT work, with or around the IT tech guy in the office... Fun for me, better for my team members, frustrating for him tho. He has been trying to fix that stuff for 3 months... Now they are fixed. Lol

Getting more settled, went out to dinner with a friend last night, and looking forward to spending time with more friends from back home that are coming in to visit today till Sunday.
Also, my son's 12th birthday is Sunday... Although I wish I could spend it with him, with a G Hangout and a gift in the mail, gotta let that be enough for now.
Hope everyone is having a great week!

Not that bad, really. The Market updated to the latest Play Store, Darling Bride has her games and such now... plus I'm slapping Gone With The Wind (her favorite movie) on it using DVD Catalyst 4. So no, it's not "bleeding edge" but it IS Android and it does work

So after a WEEK of flash attempts, I finally found a ROM that works and that makes the ol' Chief a very happy dog this morning

Congrats on getting it up and running Chief!

So anyone following the Dreamliner debacle? Cringe worthy to say the least.

P.S. To continue on the birthday streak, today is my oldest's 6th birthday.

Just messin with ya. I haven't really used my Flyer much (just serves as a bedside clock), but HC on it seems fine. Still think it's a solid tablet. I didn't get to use it much since it bricked. Took me a while to send it back to HTC for repair (EXCELLENT customer service ). For the $99 I paid for it last year, it's fine for what it is (honestly, GB was pretty nice with Sense).

Yeah, I'm only 28 we definitely take a ton of pictures. The DSLR we bought was the best investment ever.

Morning folks! Glad to hear you're ok Anti, definitely wakes you up when that happens doesn't it?! Happy birthday to your young'n as well

A tad unnerving to hear about all the dreamliner stuff since we're flying tomorrow, but we won't be on a dreamliner, so I guess that's good. Wonder if we'll run into Captain?

Has the good Captain ever told us what airline he flies for? I think that would be pretty cool to get him as a pilot.

...though I might be a tad worried that he's not too busy posting on here and not paying attention!

I don't know if he has or not. But his frequent visits to Atlanta, home base of Salt Lake City and visits to Tokyo and Amsterdam make me lean towards Delta.

Everyone seems to be panicking about a dusting to 2" of snow here in the District this evening. Come on, DC, grow a pair!

Ha, 2 inches up here is the equivalent of a Zamboni smoothing out the ice rink. Put a nice fresh coat of snow on top of what we have. But these last couple of winters have been tame, so maybe that analogy will change. That warm weather last weekend ruined it.

My brother told us stories of going to school in Ithaca and how ridiculous their winters were! He said the "popular" sport was sledding down the hills at Cornell on their dining room trays.

Yes! Sledding down in stolen lunch trays was always fun . The funny thing is that Ithica isn't even that close to the lakes, so they get off easy. The real nasty areas are usually all within 10 miles of Lake Erie or Ontario. The northern suburbs of Syracuse always get hit the hardest. Because as long as the winds don't shift, it snows until they do. That's how you get these record storms in the past that dumb incredible amounts of snow. About 11 years ago, over a 5 day period, Buffalo got 82.3 inches of snow. Absolutely mind blowing, especially considering it was over Christmas(Dec 24th-Dec28th).

Usually we are prepared for it, and do a better job than many at removing it, but when you start talking about just under 7 feet of snow, that's a lot. These don't happen very often, but getting squalls that randomly dump 6 inches in 3 hours and then end are very common. Up until these last 2 winters, it would snow more days than it wouldn't here. Can't say that I'm complaining; I hate dealing with the snow.

Good lord, now they're talking about "safely" shoveling snow on the news!
It's called, pay the neighborhood kid to shovel it for you.

Edit: or live in an apartment where you're not responsible.
(granted I help shovel around the sidewalks at work. )

Never mind 7 feet, here in the UK 7cm is a national emergency! Heck, 7mm is enough to cause problems

You'd think we'd never seen the stuff before the way the transport system fails to cope...

When we were visiting NC before we moved there (from MA), they forcasted a dusting or so of snow the night before. What came after that? Immediate school closings. What resulted? Basically nothing.

Jhawk, I live in a small building so it's more about a couple guys removing snow from the steps down to the sidewalk (which rarely happens). We're lucky to get some salt sprinkled.

They put a large bucket of salt inside the front door, and every once in a while they use it. I think I sprinkle it on the steps more than they do.

Big fan of it myself. We have a ton of ice melter at work. It's more important because or vendor deliveries come through the back door down a custom ramp. If it's raining or snowing it's really precarious. I try to keep it as "tractional" and clear as possible.

Yeah a couple years back we got the most snow in 30 years in Statesboro (4in). But it hit at 7pm on a Friday night, stopped by 12am, and the warmth in the roads had cleared the snow on them by 5am Saturday morning. So didn't cause much hassle for most. And it was beautiful the next day with all the White everywhere.

I feel bad for folks who never get to experience much snow in their lives.
Our family friends got back from a cruise on the Reine through Germany. Lot's of international folks (many from Australia and New Zealand) who got to see snow for the first time!

That must have been something to witness. I remember taking a trip to Orlando during February a couple years ago, and it was suppose to be "cold" there, like upper 50's, nothing like the teens I left behind in NY. I was out in shorts and a tee and thought nothing of it; though I got some interesting looks from the locals to say the least.

The most snow we have ever gotten here was about 6-8" or so when I was 4. We would get 2-4" every 5 years or so and maybe a dusting every other year. That was until the last 3 years.

Three years ago we were supposed to get rain on a cold January day. My wife got 5 miles from work (20 miles from home) and it started sleeting so hard that she almost couldn't get the car off of the road to a safe place fast enough. After a couple of inches of sleet was deposited over 30 minutes, about 4" of snow fell in a couple of hours. She was stuck in a parking lot for 3 hours while I drove 40 miles in my 4x4 truck to pick her up.

Two Christmases ago we were supposed to MAYBE get a "dusting". Usually that means they're just hoping to see some white rooftops. Woke up to 6". Two weeks later we were supposed to get about 3", which usually means we won't see any snow Woke up to a foot! I was giddy with excitement!

Hi MP! If it's warm most of the year I'm good.....I like my temps to range in the 50's to 90's (low 90's with no humidity would be good).

It can get down to 30, but it can get around 90 to 100 in the summer.
How's your year going?
