High Point 1 : AKA my cry baby post.I ended up in tears responding to a post from dawnierae & showing everyone that I truly have a soft side when it comes to my family.

High Point 2 : Friend request & a from XplosiV

High Point 3A : I ended up in tears again when Unforgiven ( Pup ) & I started posting back & forth the opening song to Gilligan's Island.

High Point 3B :
Only to be interrupted by kymberlin who then decided to start plugging ( totally on accident ) some websites that well....... & I'll leave it at that. By this time my abs were so soar from laughing I don't have to do my 10 minutes of planks before bed tonight.

High Point 4 : B/c of the cleaning up issue ( see high point 3B ) we got a visit from an AF celebrity Steven58. That's right folks AF royalty stopped by the good ole S3 waterin' hole this afternoon. I know, I know it wasn't Rob or Phases, but the next best thing ( sorry Steven58, were still cool right ? ). Which means we are officially on the map. Guess we can start picking out some paint colors for the S3 penthouse, I'm thinking Pebble Blue.

High Point 5 :Phases granted my wish & I got to start the first thread in the Motorola Droid RAZR HD forum. Motorola Droid RAZR HD forum . All right, maybe this high point isn't so great, but I thought it was kind of cool.

Besides this not much happened here today. Maybe it doesn't sound like "all that" to those that weren't here, but if you were you would totally understand. Can't wait to see what happens in here tomorrow.

If you see the words "On Probation" near my avatar PM Steven58 and he'll give you the low down.


And that folks, was our WH's 1000th post, think you missed that lil bit there treb, but no worries, it's a goodun

She comes back tomorrow, well it's now tomorrow here ( Friday ) so tonight !! Yeah !! When she/we get back from a week long work meeting we just like to chill & catch up on sleep. Will just go pickup something here local for Saturday night.

With you on the early mornings...errrr. With my daughter back to school the alarm goes off at 5:45am now . Which for me is in about 5 hours from now. Oh boy....

Ouch that's bad enough. I'm up at 4:45am on days, start work at 6, then it's 12 hours of joy for me. Good thing is I transition over to nights for Saturday night so I got all day to do what I want (or more like as the ball & chain orders) but I actually need to get some work done on my bike, nothing major, just tightening brakes and filling tyres. So that shouldn't take long.

Ah, I remember the days of all of us racing to get the Milestone post in the Nexus Pre-release thread. It was mayhem and we all had to get yelled at for garbage posts by these "Red" guys.
Has anyone tried TSF Shell launcher. It's a bit of coin at $17 but I'm looking at it's updated version on DL, and it looks awesome (believe it's demoed on a Gnex).

Wow for that money it better be good, I can't believe how many people rate nova and apex and yet they both do much less than launcher pro and LP is old now, and imo still way better!

Is ofski to take a gander at TSF...

I missed that, so thanks for pointing it out. Nothing wrong with getting emotional about your family.

LauncherPro hasn't been updated in ages! I used to use it when it just came out and we had to pay Fede through PayPal since he develops from Argentina(?).
I still like Nova since it's minimalist and I love stock ICS/JB and don't need too much theming. I did like his contacts widget though.

I found it was the little things in apex that bugged me.

Rows/columns were buggy if you set custom.
No option to change focused icon colour or depressed icon colour
The screen indicator bar was black with no option to change it, genius on a black wallpaper! Same for the other page indicators.
Pay to get notification counters.

I'm sure there were other things I found but like I said, small things. And yea Lp is old, not ics optimised, etc but for me it's got what I need. I'm not into the themes n effects stuff myself, but each to their own. It works for me, and I like it. Just like the other arf still uses open home and that got pulled from market ages ago.

Sure apex n nova have potential, but I would have expected them to have more of the standard common stuff to begin with, being that they could have learned from previous launchers. Oh well.

I used to live off those things.

Sorry you didn't sleep well. Sounds like a gnarly dream too.

And good morning everyone!

Ahhhh, the breakfast of champions! I'm a late afternoon 5 hour energy person myself, particularly on a Friday after work if we've got plans...I struggle to stay awake past 10:00 without it.

Treb Started this link, super funny, makes a gal laugh daily.
Unforgiven aka Pup is also a daily user.
Trent and xplosive seems to be the root masters and really know their stuff
AntimonyER, Rush, ravenas, alsaces daddy, nlsthzn, dawnierae and ajdroidx ~ pop in from time to time...
Two of the best posts ever in a forum thread! In all the years I've been haunting forums (and I visit many from Doctor Who to Disney World to my geeky worlds of computers). Never have I seen the activity summed up so well of who's Who and what's What. Thanks for the primer!

FWIW, I'm not as much an AF regular poster but more a lurker. I pop in to learn all I can about my latest gadget and why the blessed thing doesn't work as described. I'm too much a DIY-er to trundle off to some repair shop and pay a pimply-faced college kid to fix it for me. (Help and How-To is what the internet's for, right?) Leftover habits from my early 90's days when my big brothers and I were building our own desktop PCs from spare parts and playing with this whole home networking thing. (Ever try to run ethernet cable through a 1960's house and crack the attic floor? We did. I swear there's a stick with a hook lodged in the wall somewhere, lost when we got stuck around an AC vent.)

Sidenote: that's why the mere idea of the Apple "Genius" at the Apple Store makes me burst into condescending laughter.

Now that I'm on my Apple rant...

Confession time. I shunned all mobile devices (yes even Android) until the summer of 2010 when the Apple Store at the mall seduced me with the 1st Gen iPad. What followed was about 8 months of Apple brainwashing and much gadget and app buying. As a first timer never-touched-a-smart-gadget device, Apple makes it incredibly easy and deceptively "cool".

But being a Windows girl and a DIY-er, I always had my eye on other OS's. When my prepaid carrier offered the first cheapie Android phones, I jumped on it. The LG Optimus was beyond crappy and limited and yet still did more than my much more expensive Apple toys. The love affair turned to disillusion.

It still floors me how people can acclaim iOS for having a better UI when it is just a Windows 3.11 app drawer. And I've spent many hours organizing my apps by page and folder. (I was even ecstatic to get the version of iOS that allowed folders.) The notification bar is a joke compared to Android. Retina display is useless to me without the full functionality of onscreen widgets. (Besides, I get much more eye candy from my aquarium live wallpaper.)

That's my schtick. I'm like one of those religious converts. Once you see the light you have a hard time accepting the darkness. Sorry if it offends anyone. I don't dislike the users; I just get so frustrated with the blind fanboyism I wanna scream.

And yet, I admit the "sexy" hype Apple exudes still gets to me at times. So nice to see Samsung generating it's own "sexy" campaign. (Props to Asus as well for giving off that cool gadget vibe.) Motorola and LG are just so utilitarian while HTC orbits its own world. (I feel like I'm on Pluto when I test out HTC Sense.)

Oh well, if you want the opinionated gadget-obsessed geek girl POV, I guess that's me. (Mind you, if I ever meet a 900 yr old timelord who can juryrig my mobile with some jiggerypokery for unlimited data and minutes through the time vortex, I'd be in nirvana.)

Back to your regularly scheduled madness...

Oh memories... As a young lad just learning about PC's and playing around with dos 6.2 and wfw 3.11 and 3.1 before that... Good times, editing himem.sys lines and configuration files autoexec.bat & config.sys and experimenting with ramdrives etc... Oh happy days!

Thanx for that, you nearly made me feel young again, Lolz.

Here's a blast from the past, remember the early days of the internet when you needed the winsock.dll file to connect? Best way to get it (i.e. idiot proof method) was to have a CompuServe account because they loaded the best version of the file. Then you'd download Netscape Navigator (aka Mozilla aka Firefox) and browse Yahoo's handcoded directories of "all websites on the internet".

Meanwhile the grannies and kiddies were chatting it up on Prodigy and AOL.

I was there, diving into all the worlds and building my very first HTML pages. Never quite as popular as the Hampster Dance, but not nearly as annoying either.

I still remember arguing with my mother about my rampant computer use. She was certain I'd end up an antisocial hermit. "It's not like you'll ever meet friend there or do something useful like work or shop." First Christmas I walked her through doing all her shopping online only to be interrupted by about 15 friends from around the world who wanted to "check in" with me online after I built that latest website for a client, I had a good time proving her wrong.

Kids these days do not appreciate how far we've come.

I remember the excitement when I got the email saying that Yahoo would list my site. I had to submit it for review. How many remember those days. Alta Vista I think was the first site that crawled the web to create an index. Oh, and my first email client was Pine

I hear that! Loud n clear! As for the kids... I think most don't even 'know' how far we've come to be able to appreciate it!

I remember at 14 my dad finally ditched the old BBC micro, with its green screen and 5.1/4 proper floppy drive for a compaq DX4 100mhz machine complete with a 14" colour screen, QUAD speed cdrom drive AND speakers to boot! and I was in awe, until Intel released the first of the pentiums, ya know, the 75's 100's and then the 133's. Oh them days.

I was seriously thinking about starting the Brady Bunch song earlier, but I'm just too darn tired. I was singing Gilligan's Island in the shower this morning, no joke.

Don't know if I should laugh or feel sorry for you. Ouch...can't laugh, still hurts. So...you poor thing, bless your heart.

I've already put in my request to the boss to start stocking 5 hr. energy. They already provide coffee, bottled water, soda, Advil and chewing gum...what's one more thing, if it can squeeze a little productivity out of me at the end of the day?
