    As a kinda "get off my lawn" old man. What exactly is snapchat? I hear about it on the Twitter and what not but I have no idea what exactly it is, what it does and what the attraction is....

    I don't get it either but I have none what so ever problems with apps that do not work or a phone turning all blackscreen. Love my S6 on marshmallow ;)

    Wow, an app that did that would have a very short stay on my phone.

    Will someone please notify the media that every Tuesday cannot be "Super Tuesday"? Just pick one, and that's it!

    In the city nearest Casa Dngrs, they have Taco Truck Tuesday. That's pretty super.

    Just wanted to say that I am soooo Sorry for my rude behavior this week on this site....

    I honestly did not mean to offend anyone with my stupid rants...

    Please forgive me....I am just going through some rough times at work.

    I sincerely promise to be more respectful to everyone here and I promise to be much less 'prideful' and much less 'egotistical'

    I promise to be more careful what I say and more careful how I say it.

    Nope, can't see anything to apologise for.
    That's the beauty of being anonymous on forums - you can rant about work, people, anything you like. :thumbsupdroid:

    I'm dogsitting my daughter's dog for a week while she's on vacation. So my rants are:
    1) I wish I could afford a vacation
    2) I seem to have a cold or flu or something
    3) Her dog farts a lot

    Anything associated with our kid farts a lot. She's complained about her moggies in the UK. The 2 cats Meez and Fluffbutt have a flatulence problem (we inherited them) as did the ferrets when they were here.

    I never noticed, but the zoo would invariably get the Vulcan who has NO room to complain.

    The newer cars with all the conveniences are not environmentally safe for the partner of a noxious fume emitter who does not like the noise of outside air and apparently has no sense of smell. My Tacoma doesn't have air conditioning. I wouldn't have bought it if it did.

    I can't imagine intentionally avoiding an air conditioned car....especially here in Vegas.

    We drove around for about a week with an old Opel Kadett. No AC and sleeping bags under the car. I prefer what's outside. About the only thing that really is gagging is a feed lot.

    Setting up a WiFi printer..............

    that is such a frustrating experience....
    I have a Samsung ML-1865W printer, works like a champ "once it is ready to go"......

    But, the configuration app is a PITA, it does not work the same way "every time" you use it...
    It has no feedback worth a damn. Nothing about why it did not connect.

    Sometimes, when you do the manual "enter key code" it works the first time.....
    today? that never worked period......... I wasted 3 hours trying to get it to set up like it was before.....

    What happened? AT&T came in and redid my ADSL setup, gave me a new improved, Professional U-Verse router, and of course, that new one has a different WPA security code.... entering those codes manually never worked once.....

    So, I thought "hey! why not just use the WPS buttons?
    Well, there isn't any manuals on either the router, or the printer, that tell you just exactly what procedure will make it hook up the "first time"...... another hour wasted..... and again, no indicator lights that tell me "Hey it works now!"

    as the manual method would not work at all, I just kept changing techniques, who's on First Base First??? seems like it makes a difference. How long do you hold down the WPS button to make it 'activate the process' ?? that is important. "Too brief" and it does not work....

    finally, I hit google and found a link to a tech guy explaining how to make the Printer go into the WPS mode.

    Wallah! it works.......... but still, NO INDICATION OF IT WORKING !@#$%@!#$%^@%$#^

    .I just kept using Notepad.exe to send a text page to the printer..... must have done that 30 times before the printer responded.

    My Rant for today...

    I was given approval, a week couple of weeks ago, to leave work early at 3 PM so I could make it to a reservation at an Irish pub for a 4 PM 'Dinner Sitting' on St. Patrick's Day.

    I did not actually get to leave the office today until about 3:50 PM.

    Then while I was at the Irish Pub, having fun listing to the loud Irish Music and eating dinner with my dad, I missed a call from my boss at around 5:20 PM.

    At about 5:30 PM noticed the missed call, and I called my boss back. I had to apologize to my boss three times for missing the call. And the problem was something that my boss could not find, that should have been easy to find.

    I claimed my boss down, but I was told to be more careful with paying attention to the calls that come into my mobile phone.

    It really sux being on a PIP, and having to be very careful about what I say and do.

    Rant Over


    Honestly, otherwise I have had a fairly good St. Patrick's Day


    Please don't let me bring everyone down...

    Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone!

    It totally sucks being leashed to a phone for work, especially when you're not being paid to be on-call.

    My rant today: my entire schedule for the day was hosed up... People weren't informed they were supposed to get up, others had rescheduled without telling me, then throw in a couple toddlers...

    That's the reason I got a cell phone. My boss couldn't remember his own name at times and having to find a phone with a pager was the pits. I got my own phone as I preferred a different carrier. Most of the phone calls were for the combination to the lock on the garage door. He just couldn't remember it.

    I think I've been called from work maybe 2 times in 2 years.

    I still get my $20 monthly cell phone stipend too.

    when I worked with 911 IT staff, I would get a lot of calls at home....
    especially on the weeks that I was the "Standby Tech"....

    we had 5 minutes to return the page, 30 minutes to be on the job....
    that leash was tight.... that 30 minute time span kept a lot of workers from living where they wanted to.
