FIFY. And remember, getting older might be a bummer sometimes, but it definitely beats the alternative!

Don't worry, I'm the same way. Showered before my run. Shower before I detail the car (easily a 2 hour job for a simple wash/wax when I do it).

What's the distance?

I've never had peach cobbler or a peach for that matter. I just never bothered.

I love a great fresh, ripe peach.
Cobblers are fine, but just peaches and some vanilla ice-cream on a hot summer day is heaven for me!

Glad I'm not the only crazy one!
It's a 5k with obstacles. Some were closed due to the rain but the ones that were open were so fun. I'm a little bruised (no, can't show pics because of where I'm bruised) but it was a blast!

They closed parts of a mud course because it was WET?

I may have heard it all now...



EDIT: My cobbler is done, ice cream made and setting in the freezer! By the time we get home stuffed from dinner out, we're gonna get MORE stuffed on this!

Too dangerous for climbing up and/or down. They want us to stay in one piece and some of the stuff was metal so add the regular mud and the rain and it was a broken bone waiting to happen.

Can I haz some cobbler please?!

Pam said you got dirtier than her, but I think you just finished dirtier than her. Congrats. Having stood at the finish line at Pam's for a couple hours and watching woman stumble through, it is an accomplishment.

Yes, BB, I mailed you a piece of peach cobbler with peach ice cream. Sent it parcel post

And well done on the mud run! I don't like driving 5k, let alone trudging through that much mud! Good job

You might want to PM Phases and ask him what happened...


EDIT: Well, my marital relationship with Sourcery is coming to an end, methinks.


Sourceress ROM has just become way too buggy for me to live with. Making my backups now to flash ParanoidAndroid 3.69.

It was a great year, but Team Sourcery is no more

Hey everyone! Spent the afternoon in the kitchen. Made breakfast burritos, (55 of them) all individually wrapped. They go in the freezer and are microwaved when desired to be eaten. Very easy to warm up and give to the kids for the drive to school when running late.

Also grilling the chicken for all our meals this week. Tonight having blackened chicken with mango salsa, rice pilaf and broccoli.

I made blackened chicken once, but we couldn't eat it. I cooked it at 550 degrees for 6 hours. It was definitely black...

Still scouring for a 4.3 build for my S3. There's a couple out there but things look to be still very beta at the moment. Guess I'll be sticking with 4.2.2 a little longer.
Stigy, do you (or anyone for that matter) know if LE BT will help with any battery life when using Pebble?

Morning everyone! Hope you all had a nice weekend. Spent most of the day Saturday putting down laminate flooring with my Dad and Grandfather. Didn't quite get done, made it all the way to the last row where we had to trim up the door frame a little and had to stop so they could get back home. I think it's to the point where I can finish it this week though. Just need one more row and then the closet.

BB, congrats on completing your mud-run. I've been wanting to do one of those for a while. I think I'm going to hunt one of those to do next year. Also, I would've done the same thing you did...get up and take a shower BEFORE the run, haha. I've been known to take 3-4 showers some days. I always take one in the AM and any time I come back inside for a break from working outside.

Good morning all - happy Monday.

Played my first full 18 holes of golf yesterday and my body is not happy about it. Fitbit says I took 17k steps during the 18 holes, which sounds about right. Was definitely a nice workout and got some good tips & pointers on my game. Definitely enjoyable to be out there and it was a gorgeous day.

Anyone running a 4.3 ROM? I am running a test 4.3 ROM and getting a lot of data drops so I may go to a CM-based 4.3 ROM or back to 4.2.2 for now.

It is supposed to help battery life of both devices by a small bit, yes.

We have to wait for Pebble to update the software running on the watch to support BLE first though. Its still using Classic Bluetooth.

Just waiting for Fitbit to update their app so I can sync my One with my phone too.

Sorry, does what - the Fitbit?

If you're talking about the Fitbit it requires your phone to have BT4.0 and the app to have a way to connect to the GATT server on the device and get the data off of it when it scans for it. I'm 99% sure that the 4.3 custom ROMs have got BT4.0 working on our phone, but we need to wait for the Fitbit app to support native BT4.0 (BLE) instead of it just supporting Samsung's implementation of it before 4.3 was available and a native API existed.

Thanks, yeah it was one of the much better reasons why iOS is better for Fitbit.
The wireless sync with my laptop is fine, but it'd be nice to gather info on my phone throughout the day.

Once the app is updated, if you run a 4.3 ROM on the Galaxy Nexus and it either includes the BLE changes or you flash a BLE enabler zip in recovery it will do the same as iOS.

It's on Fitbit right now to update their app to support native BLE implemented in the 4.3 APIs.

I assume my S3 on a 4.3 ROM "should" be the same?

Your S3 running TouchWiz (not sure if you are still running it) should be able to sync with the Fitbit app with no issues at all.

Reaching out to you guys for a little help. Anyone know of a way to make iOS group messaging work on Android? Wife complains constantly about her iOS friends sending group messages and it not working on her Rezound. I've tried Chomp, Handcent, and Go SMS and GO SMS seems to work best but still not flawlessly.

Android 4.2.x supports it natively but I used to use GO SMS before it supported it within the OS.

Cool. I honestly was considering buying my wife an iPhone because of this. Not a week goes by where I don't have to hear something about her phone not working and I have to explain it isn't her phone...it's the way Apple devices treat group messages. I knew the few times I got a group message from an iOS device it worked ok on my stock app, but thought I just didn't get enough of them to see the errors she got.

It's Apple using MMS headers to direct threads into groups if it contains multiple To: addresses - its honestly pretty clever.

I heard way too many complaints about Android and just told the fiancee to get an iPhone when her upgrade was up and she loves it. To each their own.

Other than that one issue my wife has loved her Rezound. If that was fixed in native Android 4.2 then she will be good with any phone. Her only other complaint is that newer Android phones are getting too big. She wouldn't even discuss getting the HTC one this weekend after seeing it in person. I told her the Moto X would be smaller than her Rezound.

Nah, I'm on a 4.2.2 CM derivative (called Beanstalk).

Got to check out and play with the new Nexus 7 today at Staples since BB was too awesome to put it on the shelves.
Looks great, and since they had it side by side with the original I was able to better compare them. Screen is absolutely gorgeous, but with how little I use ours, it's not worth it for me. But, look like I'll be loading up a beta CM 10.2 (4.3) ROM on it shortly.

So the only BLE option (prior to 4.3) was Samsung's implementation on the S3, S4 and Note II - everything else won't work.

With that being said, anything with a BT4.0 chip and running a 4.3 ROM with the BLE code fixed (our phone) will work if the app / device supports it.

Here is a package to flash the BLE specific code if it is not included specifically in your ROM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2387107

My S3 is my daily driver now. Is BT 4.0 native to stock 4.2 on the S3?

BT4.0 is native to stock on TouchWiz S3 - once you flash 4.2 AOSP ROM's you lose Samsung's implementation of BT4.0 on the S3.

Once there is a 4.3 ROM available for the S3 you will regain BT4.0, but done correctly through Google's native API.

Make sense?

Thanks, looks good so far. It's not hinging on anything and I'd rather run an AOSP ROM anyday and sacrifice BT 4.0 any day.

Whithout the greasy taste. Duplicating/growing fat cells are too difficult yet.

I was a vegetarian for many years but started eating meat again (in pretty small doses, usually prefer veggie options).
Its origin is in meat so I'd say no on that front. But! like some have said on the news, a vegan driving a Hummer is hurting the environment less than a meat eater driving a Prius. Not sure where the basis is or reasoning, but I could believe it.
Either way, without getting political; no I wouldn't choose it. I'd go with a veggie burger no matter how processed it was long before a test tube beef burger.

Cows produce copious amounts of methane gas. It's possible that statement is true. One would need to calculate how many pounds of beef a meat eater would eat in a year...correlate that to how many cows it would take to make that beef. Then from that calculate how many greenhouse gasses those cows produced. The greenhouse gasses produced from nearly every car in America is pretty readily available with a good Google search.
