I would have been a 3rd generation Navy but they wanted to make me a nuclear engineer and shove my 6'2" frame in a submarine. Plus, I didn't like my father much so I refused to follow in his footsteps

haha my dad was a bubble head he said it was fun in that little tube with a bunch of guys (but who am i to judge)
I saw how the NAVY tried to teat my dad when he got close to retirement and that is what made me not follow in his footsteps

We surface Navy types could go on all day long telling Bubblehead jokes

But deep down inside I admire him... I don't think I could ride a boomer for 6 months at a time under the ice sheets

The Navy actually has treated me very well. I did 20 years and 6 months just to MAKE SURE that there was no doubt in anyone's mind that I had retirement benefits coming to me. So they actually took fairly good care of me going out.

Only heartache I had was that it was a high-pressure command and they expected ME to arrange my OWN retirement ceremony! I decided heck with it: let's have a luncheon in the boardroom, my Darling Bride will bring the cake, you guys give me my paperwork and we'll all it quits.

But considering the pay & benefits I get? I'd do it again 10 times over in a heartbeat. It was a great ride.

Congrats Stigy! I could go for a raise myself.
My dad and brother were both in the Navy. I'm just happy to now be able to bank with USAA.

And to add to the military talk.. I was offered Navy nuke school, and also could not figure out how my 6'4" frame would work...
Instead I took Army communications and did Y2K computer upgrades in the late 90s, combat zone after combat zone, deployed 4 times...until, on a stateside tour, and at a mountain warfare school, my belay dropped the safety rope, and I fell over 30ft into solid rock... Shattered my spine. Effectively ending my (34 Bravo) Army life permanently.
No hard feelings left, just doctors etc for the rest of my life. Thankful I can walk again, play with my kids, and that I am still around. I am happy that there are so many people that will never have to experience what I did, and that there will always be tech to support all of our troops!

Yikes man, that sounds terrifying! Glad you survived that!

Morning all! Happy Friday! So kind of happy, the county recently paved a dirt road along the absolute shortest route to work, so it is all paved roads now. Cuts an additional two miles off my route (41 miles vs. 43 miles). With as much as I drive, and as expensive as gas is, every little bit helps.

Default Re: Galaxy Nexus Watering Hole

That's a great example of what they CAN do... It took about 5years for my stuff to get fixed, but now it's all pretty much settled. Permanently disabled and they do take care of a lot. Especially surgeries.. Can't tell you how much $ we have spent with doctors etc over the years, but they really are good. And I don't mind being a guinea pig when it comes to new styles of implants.. As long as I can walk and play with my kids... I am a happy camper. A long and arduous time. But they have taken care of me and my family, and will continue to do so. The only regrets I have are so much time lost with my family and kids... Being bed ridden is not conducive to a family life.

Default Key Lime Pie on my Galaxy Nexus!



It's true! The ol' Chief had the opportunity to test a part of Key Lime Pie on my Galaxy Nexus! Not the whole thing, mind you: just part. And I know that you folks are true skeptics, refusing to believe it unless you see a picture.

Well here it is... my beloved Ginny with Key Lime Pie! I decided to hide it:

Finally received my case for the N7 yesterday. They sent the wrong one though. There isn't that much of a difference between the one I ordered and the one they sent. Just below the camera, there shouldn't be any material there. It was a design change to make swiping down easier. The one I have it is difficult to do. The best chance of it working is to not have any apps or widgets at the top. I could easily just use a knife and remove the material. An email was sent and am waiting for a response. It came with a stylus also. I'm not sure that I'll use that?

5.2 is running smoothly after a dirty flash up from 5.0

Happy Friday everyone!

BTW: Am I having total brain flatulence or did something happen to Stigy's name?

And Halon: Nice case!

Going to flash 5.1 or 5.2 tonight then, thanks!

If you mean me no longer being green, then it was about a week ago I stepped down from staff as real life stuff took over. Have a wedding to plan for and have been SUPER busy at work.

Stay off 5.2. That was an exp build aborted. 5.1 is the official release. It's smooth. Don't confuse 5.1 release with 5.1 exp. They're different. K?

I have been quite distracted, so forgive me Stigy. I knew SOMETHING was different, but you actually look good in gold too!

EDIT: What happened to 5.2, Steven? I'm RUNNING it!

I spoke to Eagle, the developer, and he told me to totally forget 5.2. That was after I had it up and running! The 5.1 release supercedes all exp builds. Actually, I knew that was the plan from before 5.2 exp.

I guess I'd better dirty flash back down to 5.1... that may explain some of the weirdness my son is having with his Nexus...

Where is he most active? I know they have their own boards but I see him on Rootzwiki and XDA?

Or is the IRC channel the best to use?

Honestly you may be better off restoring back to 5.0 and dirty flashing to 5.1 if 5.2 truly did have some problems with it.

I'd rather flash from a working base rather than from something that could be corrupt.

Your theory is compelling, Stigy, but the JBSourcery ROM zip includes a routine that wipes the /system partition before writing the actual ROM. Seems to me that any "bad" bits in there would be deleted anyway.

I guess we're about to find out, huh? If there are issues, I'll take your advice & nandroid back to 5.0 and then flash up

no, dirty flash will get you needless trouble.

flashing to 5.1 full release is a flash up. flashing to 5.1 exp is a flash down. Confusing but true.

Just clean wipe and flash the 5.0 release.. that's the best way.

Too late, Steven. Dirty flashed 5.1 and everything seems to be smooth and in order. If son's Nexus hangs up, I'll do a full wipe... his seems to be the finicky one. Ginny just takes everything I throw at her

Glad it worked. I'll nver dirty flash, I'll restore via tibu, but even that will give me trouble sometimes.

Believe it or not, dirty flashing down to 5.1 on son's phone has cleared up some issues. So all is well for the moment...

5.1 is stable.. I'm not surprised. Personally, I flashed the new radios over 5.1 release and got all terrible boot loops. I re flashed 5.1 over the messed up 5.1 and that fixed everthing.

I'm avoiding the new radios: I have heard more bad than good about them. Does the 5.1 release contain the BT fix or should I flash that separately?

I'm horribly conflicted about the new radios. I get worse signal, but better battery life? Which do I prefer?

I'm on the new radios. They seem okay. 4.2.2 has the bt fix, right? If so, yes. It's there. Unless I'm confused.

What a throwback!

A look at Android 1.0, a brand new type of mobile operating system. Revolutionary in its day, it's primitive beyond words when put up against Android 4.2.2:

Anyone seen OTD lately? I think the last I have seen her around these parts, or anywhere really, was way back when she was transforming folk into vamps.

EDIT: Looks like she has been MIA since then and is no longer a Moderator. I hope everything is ok in IRL for her.

No one knows. She has not been in touch with us since October. Several staff reached out to her but haven't heard back, sadly. We hope, we pray for her.

Morning...
Does anyone ever feel like the Nexy is a #@$ stepchild? Okay sorry for the descriptor, but check out the link... https://events.projecttangerine.com/mobile?ref=web_canvas&app_data=sxsw#_=_

So basically, starting this weekend is SXSW and lots of events are happening... Today I am going to a Google Playground, and Samsung has offices here, along with a lot of other tech stuff... But with Nexy I can't participate... Almost makes me what to buy the wife an SIII or a Note2.. Just so I can participate...
