    Saw the latest on Isaac in NO on the local news. Not looking too bad so far, but they said folks further inland could be in worse trouble due to flooding. Hope everyone is okay!

    Hi all! Wow you are a talkative bunch. I read most of the posts, skimmed a few. Can I have some of those mixed drinks? I'll happily be a tester if you drive me home!!

    If K'Lin keeps throwing these pool parties, Treb keeps drinking, X continues to cook these masterful meals and Early provides the Keystone cops comic relief, then I think it's got a good life ahead of it.

    Of course everyone here keeps this baby running and I'd mention more names but would probably offend the one person I forgot!

    So I say to everyone here and absent, Cheers and Let's Party!

    Now, if you'll excuse me, I think I've caught the scent of a lone White Zin that needs to be befriended...

    Rach, did you figure out your battery draining issue ?

    I used to be a big fan of dolphin. Now the stock browser is pretty good. I like to check my favorite AF forum in between work duties.... So I just use the app. It's easier

    I love it. I would like to know, just haven't looked into it yet, can I make different ringtone for individual people based on location? For instance, when I dock my phone at night I leave my ringer off. But if its the kids I would like to take their call.... Now that I think of that, it may be useful for Trebs secretary. hmmmmmm

    Honey, I just poured one myself !

    Yeah - it looks like it was that gsiff_daemon. Still don't know what it does but for some reason it suddenly goes into overdrive and runs constantly.

    My battery has been much better since I killed it and it's not come back again. I've got some automated eyes keeping an eye out for anything like this spinning off again.

    I may end up taking folks advice and renaming the binary just to stop it from running. Since other people have done that with no seemingly adverse effect then it might be something I will look into.

    For the moment I'll let things be but will keep an eye out for any recurrence.

    This is partially why I own a G15. I can program a G key to run a script to repeat a certain button press at the interval I determine :)

    MMOs owned my life for far too long.

    ^ no idea what any of that means. :thinking:
    I have a crappy Gateway laptop. Drool on some of the new ultrabooks, but since I rarely move my laptop from the living room table, I don't really need something so thin and light.

    It's a programmable keyboard. So with one push of a button can execute multiple lines of code. Gamers use it to do certain sequences automatically.

    MMOs are like Everquest, World of Warcraft...those games that involve many players. Yeah...I finally tired of it and decided to go outside for awhile :)

    Gotcha. Not a gamer at all here. Don't know anything about them, and don't have the attention span to play through one of those.

    I don't think Elixer2 can, but get "auto ring" from market, it's free me n miss X Just been testing it. Worked for us.

    Just add family to white list (don't tick sms option)

    On normal callers you'll get no vibrate or ring but the call still shows up (pic caller ID etc) then. It will ring out as a missed call and go to answer phone.

    On white list call, you get ringtone & vibrate at volume you specify.

    Works when set to vibrate mode or silent mode, can be activated auto so as soon as you change ringer modes (which you CAN toggle with Elixir 2) it enables / disables the app ;)



    With that, it's sleepy time in this house. G'night all

    Not that it helps you on Elixir2 but I'll mention it nonetheless...

    It's actually one of the profiles I have set on Tasker. If Toma calls then I have it set to ring regardless of the mute settings.

    You mentioned like location - that's something Tasker can handle as well.

    Just FYIing is all.

    Did I mention how much I love Tasker? :D
