    Disgusting. A lot of it, I think, just has to do with men in "power" be it political or financially. For some reason it gives them that green light to do whatever they want. But, anyone who messes with children deserves.....
    Sorry, too much cursing would follow so I'll let you decide my feelings. :mad:

    Strung up? Seriously, why not just cut it off...without anesthesia.

    I've already bought apps for Android, I'm not buying them for an Apple product too!

    Ahh, yes. The in-law issue. Does your wife want one? And I know she is a teacher so it might have some benefit for her in school.

    She has never, not once made a comment about wanting one. I don't even know that she's ever used one. On top of that I specifically have set out to develop apps in Android for teachers, mostly things that my wife tells me would be useful in her classroom. I'm gonna shut up now before I get worked up

    I don't know if you got things figured out. If you didn't, here is what you do.

    Flash CWM by whatever means, then using a file explorer, rename the file "recovery-from-boot.p" to "recovery-from-boot.p.bak", no quotes. This will allow your custom recovery to stick. The file you are renaming ensures that at each boot your phone has stock recovery. You don't want this. Hope you get it worked out! And stop using friggin ROM Manager, please! :)

    For those with a political sense of humor. This is hilarious.
    Tons of cursing though, but funny nonetheless

    Many of you know that I have been particularly quiet on the weekends. Some weekends I do not even log in. Well, I figured I give you a peek. We'll start with sheds. Mind you, with the exception of the sheds, this has all been done with hand tools and a rototiller. I moved from this abomination (soon to be razed)...

    [​IMG]

    ...to this shed including building the decks and the benches.
    [​IMG]

    I regraded the back yard when I took down the pool (it was dropped 15" on the uphill side and raised 15" on the downhill side to make the pool level). You can see the light area which is all new grass.

    [​IMG]

    The past two weekends I have been trying to get my gardens that look like this (this is the last one I have left to do).
    [​IMG]

    To look like this:
    [​IMG]

    Here is the rather large pile of dirt and sod I have dug out of the various gardens so far.
    [​IMG]

    Any way, just thought I would share.:)

    I've got no issue with the iPad, it's just the fact that we have Android accounts and all kinds of paid Android apps but now we can't use any of them for her new tablet, have to set up all new accounts, deal with different ways of syncing the device, etc.

    Hey everyone. Busy day, my wife is getting a day off, hanging out with her mom, getting a pedicure, and tonight going to a movie with her best friend. I got the grocery shopping done first thing, then detailed her van and my car, and now working on her mother's day present. I am using smilebox to make a multimedia presentation with 100 pictures, and 4 videos of her and the kids. I hope she likes it.

    Pup, the place looks nice.

    How's your day BB? Are you excited for mother's day tomorrow? To be honest, sometimes I want to splurge on an iPad but I want the yet to be release Transformer Pad Infinity series...really want a keyboard! I want to replace my lappy!

    That is why I use titanium to back up. You back up an app with data and you don't have to set up your passwords, etc when you restore your backups

    Sorry to quote myself but I wanted to clarify my potentially controversial standpoint. And I do not wish to start any arguments, I am not know around the forums for anything like that and I don't plan to start today.

    I just want to say that abhorrent human behavior, crimes like the one this man is alleged to have committed, make me question the nature of our "fair" justice system. I just think that if, in a perfect world in which convictions could be 100% correct, you commit certain crime that we should not be paying taxes to house these people for a lifetime or for years on end leading up to a death sentence.

    Basically, if we had a concept of "no doubt" as a different level of conviction that superseded "reasonable doubt" we could have a better society. People who commit crimes against children make me red and furious.

    Again, I don't wish to start any argument but I had to get this off my chest.

    Thank you for listening and respecting my words, even if you do not agree. Guides and Mods: feel free to remove this if you see fit. I hope that I used wording that falls within the construct of our rules and guiding principles.
