    LOL! Which is why I never offer to "fix" the Mrs' technology unless asked. And even then it's a 50/50 proposition.

    Awesome!! :D

    She did also say "I guess I was just used to it"... I explained that one of the benefits of rooting... I can try different ROM's till I find one she likes. She has an iPad... perhaps I'll put MIUI on there!! :eek:

    I've been trying to get her to let me do it for AGES... she then said I could, when I explained that I was doing my mates Desire Z the other weekend.

    To me, the two go hand in hand. She was still on Android 2.1 and the phone didn't work entirely properly... it's now on CM9 and does.

    Will have to see :)

    Before trying a new rom leave it for a while it might grow on her

    Just back from mass, had to stand out in the freezing cold cause the church was full and to think I was a half an hour early.

    I recall a few years we had standing room only for the Xmas eve Mass. Ugh, thankfully we were always early.
    (and that I never need to go again ;))

    Yes. It's also more economic and better for Santa's delivery logistics as el-cheapo off-brand Android tablets have become very popular Christmas gifts, and these are all made by his hard working, non-union, low-paid pixies and leprechauns in nearby Shenzhen.

    It's going to be rather busy in General Tablet Talk during the next few days and weeks.

    Yeh, leprechauns are indigenous to Ireland, as are pixies indigenous to Cornwall. But many of them emigrated to China in the early 1980s. St.Patrick's Day is very important in Guangdong Province.

    Had some Mongolian vodka, a few weeks ago.....ganbai!!!

    Merry Christmas Liam. :)

    Indigestion and a headache. Same as last year.

    Actually, I don't quite know. We exchanged gifts with the in-laws last night and I got a shirt and some little things, but right after that my son went to his girlfriend's family and we are waiting for him to return before we exchange gifts here.

    Take some disprin and watch some comedy that usually helps me forget about my headaches. :D

    That's nice waiting for your son. Maybe you'll get something good.

    My favourite thing about Christmas has to be the food though. :D
