    These are the settings I use. Indoors at my office you can see at the top I have 100-150 level range ambient lighting and that is from the past 2 days of watching at different times of the day and these have been bright and sunny days. I wanted that to be the lowest I could stand it to be which was the lowest minimum setting. From there I worked my way up the scale. Never saw any place I would experience anything over 10,000 that wouldn't be full sun so I made the big jump to full brightness there. Even on a bright day in a shady area, I could tolerate a 125 setting easily at the only place I could get the sensor to read in that 6k-10k range. I'm sure there'll be more tweaks. 15 levels in all right now.

    morning all. Finally done with all the management walk throughs and meetings that have been happening at work. Whew!!
    Update for BB....we finally finished our wedding Save the Dates. Took some work learning PSE but we finally got it last night. I will be printing them and the address labels tonight. Side note...we ended up using 2 of the fonts from a site you all recommended so thanks for that. Not easy to make, but doing them ourselves has saved us more then $400...so I would call that a win!!
    And I used a template, so we will be using the same graphic and fonts to do all of the other stationary like the invitations, menus, programs and usher cards. We should be saving an average of $200 per 100 prints we do, so that is a huge bonus in the DIY category!!
    Happy Hump Day to all!!

    Do we have to choose only one? I like this one...but probably because its a full image. And we don't always get to see your work in full size....since I use the phandroid app, I only see TINY avatars.

    Awesome! Feels good to save money doesn't it? Haha The wife and I did all the invites, programs, and even some of the food for the reception ourselves with the help of some family members as well. I actually thought it was a very fun experience and it saved tons of money.

    Woohooo! Do we get to see them once they are sent? :)
    Saving money is good! If you had eloped you could have saved even more! :D

    My best friend was going to do that. Then she got a case of the guilty conscience.
    Me - if I do it again it will be either a beach (in Mexico or the Caribbean) or Vegas.

    as soon as we send them I can post a pic...sure!!

    And although eloping would have saved money...the family would NOT have been happy. I don't think either of us would have, but the amount of $ the whole thing costs...well worth the time and effort.

    Morning everyone!

    Trying to decide if I want to take the time to fully polish my wheels for my car or if I want to just polish the lips and keep the center of the wheel silver to match my car.

    Drinking a Rockstar Punch (my second favorite energy drink) this morning. Not sure why I am so tired - got a nice 8 hours of sleep last night, but woke up tired.

    Well anyway glad its hump day! Running OSX in the VM is hanging a bit, but I figure its only cause I am giving it 1 Core and 1.5GB of RAM so hoping to get it running on my Netbook so I can give it all the resources of the machine. If not I might end up grabbing an old Macbook or Mac Mini to develop on.

    Phew morning rant, but hi everyone!

    Same here. Whole wedding process was a pain for the both of us. Nothing to do with us and what we wanted, but what everybody else wanted and could/couldn't attend. Started from day 1 too. One of her friends got upset because she had been engaged for 6 months and we had picked out a date a month before her wedding and we had only dated for 3 months. Wife didn't want to burn that bridge so what did we do? We moved our date to 2 weeks after hers eventhough that put the wedding 1 week after school started and my wife is a teacher and was starting at a new school. Meaning no honeymoon right after the wedding...delayed till Thanksgiving break. After that it was just a constant flood of we wanted one thing and friends couldn't do that or didn't like it, wedding planner telling my wife her ideas were dumb, etc. We ended up having our wedding the way we wanted it and we wouldn't change a thing. We didn't compromise on the things that were important but made adjustments on things that didn't matter to us but did to others. Neither of us will ever marry again unless the unthinkable happens and one of us dies, but we've both said if we had to do it again we'd do a destination wedding and invite family and minimal friends to come if they want, if not, oh well.

    You'll enjoy it. You'll be glad you invested all the time and money in it in the end, just don't let the process get to ya :D Was getting to this point in my previous post, but in the end, do it the way you two want and don't give up anything important to you. If it's minor stuff to make a family member happy, ok, but don't let everyone else ruin YOUR (you and your bride) day.

    Good morning peeps!!

    Chief, have you updated to the 4.0.4 radios by any chance? I had a problem (not sure if it's the same as yours), when I'd wake my phone up after an hour or two and find a screen that said I'd just had a successful activation. I didn't like that and asked around at rootzwiki, and someone told me to upgrade to 4.0.4 radios. I did, and the problem went away.

    lol Hello!

    4.0.4 radio was dumpsville for me ;)

    If only the weather could be this way year 'round oh what a joy! So nice I wished I lived outdoors for about 6 weeks during this time of year in the ATL

    +1 on that. Beautiful weather here. Upper 70's/low 80's for the next 10 days with minimal isolated showers. :D

    Anyone else a hockey fan?

    So glad the Devils are going to make the playoffs this year (pending them not losing the last 5 games). Just need to win one and the Caps lose one OR win two and we're in. Playoff hockey is one of my favorite time of the year.

    Just noticed I got paid for 20 hours of OT on my last paycheck when I didn't work any :S Strange. Guess that means they'll take it out of my next paycheck :(

    Well ladies and gentlemen we've been friends for quite a while now and I'd like to say "Thanks". The phone is indeed wonderful but it's the friendships that will outlast the phone and the friendships that I am most grateful for. I consider myself very lucky to have met all of you and thoroughly enjoy learning little bits here and there.
