He also had a giant screen and three video game consoles. He used that basement as his alone/unwinding time almost every day after work for three or four hours at a time.

The marriage did not last very long.
Everyone needs a "cave" and that was his. Many of my "toys" wouldn't fit on a shelf: I still have a 24" Eagle from Space:1999 (yes, it's OLD)! Wish it were still in the box, though:

Space:1999 Eagle 1 Spaceship AFA 85 | eBay

...And add to that an original Millennium Falcon from the Empire Strikes Back, the one that action figures can fit in, in the box.

I guess I'm sitting on a gold mine and didn't know it!

( Time to take inventory and insure all this stuff )

Yep, everyone needs alone time and a cave.

But if I left my wife alone from 6 to 10 pm every night and forbade her from joining me, there's going to be problems!

Well he had it coming to him, then. I would never "forbid" my Darling Bride from joining me in something that she really isn't interested in anyway. No need to

Hello all... I just wanted to say I'm sticking it to Verizon with my 1GB per day usage :-P

If you go in the market, search under MX player. The arm7 codec will come up and just install and you're good to go.

I think he used handbrake, but not sure. I will ask him though.

I find it annoying that if I'm not at 100% brightness, the screen looks kinda crappy. It's not crisp, the whites aren't white, etc. Very annoying.

I think a couple pages ago, there was a link to a quick mod that improves the screen quality. It's also included in at least one ROM, IIRC.

Here it is! I'm not sure if the stock ROM is deodexed, though.

If anyone is interested, make sure it's for the right build number (you can find the build number you're on in settings/about phone and look at "build number".


Edit: These only work on stock deodexed roms, not "nightlies". Oh well.

If you want to see pics from the Memorial they're here http://s1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa352/BabyBlues78/9_11 Memorial
All taken with the Nexus. I played with exposure a little tonight to see the differences.

Liked the pics. It's been awhile since I've been there.

I still say that they should have rebuilt them as they were before.

I am torn on the 'build there vs memorialize' debates. While it would have been nice to see them rebuilt I think what they have accomplished is beyond amazing. And it's rare in NYC to have that many people showing complete respect for where they are.

Clearing the call log doesn't remove the "Frequently Called" list. Hitting the dots on the contacts list screen brings up three options: "Contacts to display," "New contact," and "Settings."

It's on the far right screen in the Phone function/app. Above the "All Contacts with Phone Numbers" is a list called "Frequently Called."

Ah, that one. you have to remove the star for the contact. Press the little person by their name to bring up their contact. Press the star to "un star" it.

If they are in that list the star will be lit.

Hmm, actually, none of the people in my "Frequently Called" list appear to have their contact star lit. :/ Is there some other way?

Wow, always something new to learn. When I go there, my "starred" people are there. I had never scrolled down below that to see the lists down there. i havent found how to clear that yet. Will advise if successful.

Sorry for the confusion.

You know, when "normal" people visit other countries they take pictures of temples. museums, scenery, etc...

Where does a Nexaholic point his phone camera?

There is no way to clear that list solely, except to clear the call log iirc

Y'all had me confused just reading your responses to one another

Very nice BB. (Your pictures are much, much, better than mine.) Thank you for sharing. I fully intend on visiting the memorial next time I get to NYC.

The only ones I can get to read 100% of the time are these (from the hobby pack): tagstand - Mifare Classic Sticker - Square (35mm x 35mm)
so do we just send you an self addressed stamped envelope with some cash and you can mail a few? What's the shipping like on small quantities from tagstand?

I would too. It seems overseas is the only place to see it advertised?

Remember the Time Life Collections? They had an 80's collections. But it was way back when I didn't have the kind of money to spend on it. I would love to have ALL the hits from the 80's! What a great decade

Just make sure you have your pass printed. They are very organized and efficient about entry.

I got star wars toys as hand-me-downs from my cousins... I don't remember abusing them, but neither I nor my parents had any clue they might go up in value, at the time... they might still be stuffed into a darth vader head in some nook of my mom's basement, or they might have sold at a yard sale.

I think its only happened once.

You need to land on the million dollar wedge (its one space between two bankrupts). Then you need to solve that puzzle and win the game. THEN you need to go to the bonus round and in the bonus wheel is ONE envelope that says $1,000,000. After all that you actually need to solve the bonus puzzle.

The chances of it happening are very low, but this was crazy to see.

Here are two photos I took at dusk. The first is normal and the second was done with the HDR app.





Yeah, the HDR one is a bit noisy, but it WAS getting quite dark. I've been playing around with this app quite a bit and have taken a few photos that I'm quite happy with.

I, for one, think the Galaxy Nexus camera is just fine. I've used it to take a lot of photos of my kids who are always on the move and of the happenings in a dimly lit pub. It works for me and I'm happy.
