I posted something mildly critical about the NSA, and now I'm getting timeouts. Coincidence? :D
No comment. - Mike Nencetti from iPhone
Guess I done been blocked by someone. I wonder which TMI did it this time. <sigh> Of course, the only way I happen to find out is when I do a search and their name doesn't show up, but I know they're still on FF. Such are the times I know it's getting closer to the sign-off stage. But I'll probably keep TMI'ing for a while longer, in spite of
myself. Not meaning that as a threat, though it may seem like one. Just wanted to reassure my remaining friends that I'm not jumping ship right away. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I'm here, that's all that matters :oD - Melly
Here! - Georgia
I don't worry about whether I've offended anyone enough for them to block me. I just figure the ones that matter are the ones that stay. - ellbeecee
^this - Katy S from iPhone
I'm here. - Betsy
Thanks all.I do try to keep things in perspective, and I realize that means not everyone enjoys my eccentricities. And yes Melly, the day you block my pervy ass will be the day I *know* I need to exit FF. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Give no thought to anyone who would block you as long as you still have all of us (See above) here with you. - Friar Will
Indeed, that's the salient point, Will. I guess I'm always surprised by a block because it's more than just an "unsubscribe" so I'm always curious as to what I might have done that was SO bad/annoying/perverted or whatever. Then again, this person may have blocked me years ago and I'm just now discovering. Which makes such contemplation futile, but also raises the possibility that there... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
[Now that I've reminded people about past posts, I can just hear the blocks being clicked. It's like a dang stampede!] - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Dude. I grin most of the time when I read your posts. Go on with them, damn you. - Uli
More TMI please! - Dough Balls
I thought this link told you who blocked you. - Mike Nencetti
I like your TMIs and outrageous comments. I collect them to decorate my desktop. Keep them coming! :-D - April Russo
I didn't know about that feature, Mike. Interestingly, it doesn't show any one blocking me (at least not showing an action called "blocked" but it shows ME as having unsubscribed from the person in question last fall. I'm sure that I didn't do so intentionally, and that wouldn't explain why the person doesn't show up in a search of FFers. (Unless I'm wrong on that point?) It also shows... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
Why thank you, April. I feel somehow... humbled? And now the pressure is on! - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android

My wife's iPhone downloads the iOS 7.1 update via wifi and it looks like it installs but then checking still shows 7.0.6. Now I'm downloading the entire image via iTunes. Same happened with the update to 7.0.6. Weird.
I updated all 4 of our devices, no issues. - Mike Nencetti
Mine looked like it updated, but I apparently I didn't have enough free space to install it. - Yvonne from FFHound!
Yeah, that's what I thought but it just completed downloading the 1.3GB file and it worked. - Stephan Planken
And Yvonne, that's what her phone looked like: it seemed to complete the install, did one reboot but the "about" still listed 7.0.6, no error message or anything like that. I also noticed how slow the Apple server was so perhaps an authentication issue. - Stephan Planken from iPhone

iOS 7.1 did not let me access the keypad, when two automated calls came in at the same time. Had to take or ignore the 2nd call.
Both calls were for accepting appointments for my wife's chemo and dr. appointments. I accepted the 2nd call, then was able to get to the keypad to accept the appointment. then the first redialed me,and I accepted that one. I am used to ignoring the 2nd call and handling the first. - Mike Nencetti

Never had a chance to test the Surface Pro 2. BSOD. Now I need to create bootable media.
Never had a chance to test the Surface Pro 2.  BSOD. Now I need to create bootable media.
When I read that first line (below "Recovery") I thought it said "Your PC needs to be exploded." #SoundsSerious! - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Does not recognize USB media at boot. Will try USB DVD 1200$ paperweight. Glad it is just for r&d. - Mike Nencetti
Boots from the DVD, but does not repair. Give an option to, Just reboots. Fun. Cannot reset or refresh windows. Wow - Mike Nencetti
Hmm... guess I'll hold off on any plans to purchase one of those. (Not that it's an option right now anyway, financially speaking.) - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I used an external DVD with the Surface docked to re-install windows. Will be tinkering with system restore before i do anything else. Already made a recovery USB drive. - Mike Nencetti
I wonder if the only time Internet Explorer is used on a new laptop is to download Chrome or Firefox
There are still industrial applications that require IE present. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
OP is true for me. - Stephen Mack
But these systems are typically not used for browsing the web. I hope. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I wonder if there are still industrial applications that require IE 6. - Victor Ganata
Yep, sadly enough. I think a few of those might get dragged kicking and screaming forward after April, though. - Jennifer Dittrich
Siemens WinCC 6 required it and contained it on the installation disks. That was a few years ago but there are still quite a few systems running with that version (this sort of application is not exactly cheap). - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Not even. I had all the setup files to be installed on my laptop, on a Passport drive. No need to ever open IE, not even to download a real browser. - April Russo
I just...use IE. (and also install Chrome for those jerkwads who snobbily design a site to work with everything but IE) - Hookuh Tinypants

because commuting is part of the fun! - Mike Nencetti
My issue with "Best Places to Work" is that in the past, I've worked for 2 companies who consistently get in the top 3 for the area BUT when the time comes for the newspapers, or whomever the regulating authority is to determine such lists, there is SO much pressure put on the employees to give highly favorable ratings so it doesn't feel like a true metric. - Tamara J.

Trivia for Melly. using this link I was able to determine when I first saw the "Red Rocker" Sammy Hagar - Dec 16th 1976 - Utica NY. He opened for Boston. He was better. That was my first concert.
I was a freshman in HS. we got a ride from a friends parents. Huge snowstorm that night. - Mike Nencetti
Sammy brought out a weird guitar for one song. The guitar was called an Electric Church. - Mike Nencetti

If you install DigitalPersona-Pro, get used to it. It does not like to be uninstalled. it is Enterprise Biometric software.
Every log on was an additional 30 seconds while the biometric authentication service tried to start. Not the local service, which i tried disabling. Did not feel like butchering my registry so I re installed the application. - Mike Nencetti
Sooooo glad we decided to stay up and watch one more hour of tv. If we hadn't, we would have woken up to a hallway and family room swarming with ants and flying ants! Eeeeeeeeek! #afraidtogotosleep

We were headed to bed and noticed dozens crawling on the carpet. Yuck! Then John followed them back to a crack under the wall they were practically pouring out of. We spent the next 45 minutes taking care of it. But if we'd already been asleep... OMG I can't think about it. Fortunately, the area is still ant free. - Yvonne from FFHound!
Flying. Ants??!! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
They look like ants with wings. They don't seem to fly. And I'm REALLY hoping they're not termites. :-/ - Yvonne from FFHound!
Ok. NOW I'm grossed out. Researching exterminators now. Blech! - Yvonne from FFHound!
Usually the ants with wings are breeding adults. - Jenny H. from Android
They are most likely swarmers. we had those a few years ago. they are harmless, until they find a water source. They don't eat wood. undeaneath your house is a queen termite and the wood eating termites that needs to be exterminated. - Mike Nencetti
Lol Betsy! - Melly from FFHound!
It's so confusing because we're on a concrete slab. When we bought the house in fall 2012, the 3rd party we hired to check for pests saw no active infestations, but this time last year we had a similar (short lived) problem. Anyway, we have a call out to a guy. Hopefully there will be a resolution soon! - Yvonne from FFHound!
