    Yeah, I'm guessing he meant to link that to my Show off your UI thread. ;)

    Oh I'm sure, I just couldn't resist the temptation to be a mild smart ass. ;)

    Not the type of movie I'd be interested in seeing.

    Plus I don't chew bubble gum or wear my pants below my waist.

    Sticky consolidation thread. Brilliant!

    But seriously, one of the higher-ups should sticky this one on top.

    I pm'd a smod to unstick a few of my threads up there and stick this one....yes it is getting a little crazy up there.
  13. Frisco

    Frisco =Luceat Lux Vestra= VIP Member

    I was going to suggest the un-stickied thing for a few of those.

    Good on ya, bruddah.

    Once again we're getting into actual Helpfulville, just up the road a ways and around the bend. :D

    I was hoping for a massive post. Or at least copy and paste of the useful information from other threads in this one. Instead of linky to each thread. Cause a lot of those threads still got useless banter. All well, can't get always get what I want.

    Perhaps you could create such a thread/post.

    I don't have the experience or knowledge with Android stuff to back up such an endeavor.

    Well, I suppose each issue could be approached and researched in here, then posted point-for-point. What a job that would be.

    i would guess there is a 10,000 character limit in a post, that i think is the vBulletin default, it is easy to break that 10,000 character mark. on the Delaware site i have a guy that i had to up the limit to 50,000 cause his posts were so long..lol

    Woohoo! Thats what i'm talkin' about! Sticky sticky sticky! Saves so much space with this method. Kudos!

    "Put our brilliant minds together! Not 'one' person can create such a beast of an A-Bomb proportion! Create an unOFFICIAL Eris Knowledge Team (work on the name later! lol) and put the brains on the cutting-block (so-to-speak) for the benefit of all of Eris Kind! "

    *waits for applauds... lol*

    This is kind of a detailed question, but basically, I have been reading through some threads and came across someone who wrote that keeping the wifi turned on to 'never sleep' optimizes your battery life by a lot (instead of using mobile connection). So I set this up, but I also have the app Advanced Task Killer and I am trying to figure out if I need to set the wifi to the ignore list (so that it doesn't get killed everytime) or if Advanced Task Killer doesn't effect this.

    I am just trying to optimize my battery so I can actually use the internet without it dying on me so quickly. I charged it all night and literally 5 minutes after I unplugged it, my phone was down to 90% life. Seriously?

    If your phone is lagging, take these steps:

    1. Clear cache- Go to settings>applications>manage. Press menu and select sort by size. Go through each one and clear the cache.

    2. Uninstall any apps you don't use weekly or at least every month. It only takes 30 seconds to install it again.

    3. Go through your photos and upload the ones you want to keep to your PC, then delete all except those you specifically want on your phone.

    After all that, shut it off and turn it back on again. Let it rest for 5 minutes, then it should be good as new!

    Also, using the configurable "delete old messages" app I found a noticable increase in speed after clearing anything over 100 messages.

    It can be set to different time intervals as to which messages to keep, "one day," "one week," "one month," etc.

    I am about to sell my Eris and was wondering about when I do a factory hard reset (I know it wipes everything out). I have everything backed up using MyBackup Pro but do you know if that backup handles all my pics as well? I know they are on the SD but is that considered part of the data?

    a factory reset shouldn't wipe the card, i would save everything on the card to your pc hardrive just in case.
