Interesting discussion with Sophie.

I think she is plotting something. - Stephan from iPhone
We have yet to discover what. - Stephan from iPhone
So funny. Sophie discovered iMessage. So she tried sending a message from my wife's phone to "dad". :)
The five year old has been fed lunch. We played the Wii. Daddy has coffee. Those are my accomplishments for today. How about you?
While the West is wondering who in Russia assassinated Nemtsov the Pravda hints it is the CIA. Sadly, neither thought is outrageous.
Strange. Our home internet connection (via 3G) is blocked by Telus due to overages. Weird because it is tiered billing. Plus today is when the new billing cycle started. My account lists no usage for today yet.
I'm not expecting support calls tonight so I'll leave it for tomorrow. - Stephan from iPhone
It's working again. However, Telus said I should have replied to the text message they sent. To the 3G router/modem. Eh... How? :-) - Stephan from iPhone
Sarah likes changing the language for Cut the Rope. It makes the game much more challenging. :)
My best of day contained so many good posts! Waking up at four a friggin m isn't all that bad. :)
RT @anildash: I want to make an iOS app that does nothing but get updated to new versions, so I can maintain a blog in the release notes in the App Store.
LOL! Genius! - Spidra Webster
When reading about Nest I realize our simple life style. If it’s cold we light a fire. If it’s really cold we throw more wood on the fire.
The ladies made a cake (of course, with a Frozen theme). "To celebrate winter." Daddy will celebrate winter once the temperatures hit +25°C.

If it wasn't for tonight's hidden surprise card from Sophie saying "I love you, Dad" my day would have easily been filed as one of the worst.
I love that kid. - Stephan
That is really really sweet. - Spidra Webster
*hugs* - Alix May
Sophie's response after she discovered the tooth fairy has paid her a visit was priceless.
What? Are you kidding me? The tooth fairy came and she spoiled me!!! - Stephan from iPhone
The money has sparkles!!! - Stephan from iPhone
I love her. Hahah - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
I am always looking forward to a coffee after dinner the way smokers are longing for their cigarette. Have to have one.
Google search is asking for captchas. It never accepts them and keeps throwing one at me. Of course, I disallow scripting or cookies so that may be my punishment.
Proof that you are actually a robot? - Joe
I can neither confirm nor deny. :) - Stephan from iPhone
You're breaking the Google second commandment: Thou shall share thy identity with Google with all thy heart. - Technodad
I'm sure they recognize the IP address. I'll just switch to Bing, because surely I can trust MS. :-) - Stephan from iPhone
I switched to DuckDuckGo shortly before it became a built-in choice in iOS and OS X 10.10. Never had a second thought. - Technodad from iPhone
I find the search results there often less relevant than Google's, I have to give them that. - Stephan from iPhone
Should a two years old tell you she poked at her diaper and it "went everywhere", take it serious, people.
This guy doesn't even check his spelling before hitting send! - Stephan from iPhone
Card from Sophie this morning.

Awwwwwwww - Spidra Webster

I found a manual in PDF for software I use, 11,126 pages. That’s pretty thorough.
Not so thorough, it still didn't answer my question. How do you manage to spit out 11,000+ pages without mentioning some of the critical configuration options? - Stephan from iPhone
When you get paid by the word? - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Well... It could easily have been produced by a third party, so yes. :) - Stephan from iPhone
Installing a new Windows component. Then security fixes a day later. And then fixes for those fixes a day after that. Down the rabbit hole we go.
The five year old wants her chocolate milk well shaken, not stirred.
The 5yr old has class :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
As classy as you can be with a chocolate milk mustache. :) - Stephan from iPhone
Dash of bitters - Eric - Let Me Know from iPhone
He he... Sophie left the little 7" tablet on the kitchen table. Sarah (2) hid it but we weren't sure where. All you have to do is sit on your knees and look at her eye level in cabinets. We spotted it but Sarah isn't saying anything.
Revenge for all the toys that are being taken from her occasionally. :-) - Stephan from iPhone
(BTW, Sarah is such a gentle sweetheart that we are letting her get away with this.) - Stephan from iPhone
You've got to be kidding: Ottawa daycare is promising a ‘vaccine-free environment’ http://www.nationalpost.com/m...
And just think, those other daycares with vaccinated children are just easily-prevented-childhood-illness free. - Jennifer Dittrich
"Having the brakes removed from your car is a personal decision. Just like #vaccines." - Stephan from iPhone
I'm pretty sure this a real thing: Melanie's Marvelous Measles - A Book This Anti-vaxxer children’s book is getting destroyed in Amazon troll campaign http://www.salon.com/2015... via @Salon - WarLord
Yep, gotta keep your kids safe from those pesky, shedding, vaccinated kids. - Melly
We have returned the borrowed crutches and I have put away the cane. I wore my boots this week. Still having difficulty with stair cases or walking on uneven snow but I'll take it! #progress
*confetti* - Alix May
:-) - Stephan from iPhone
So far today, I have installed 24GB of software updates on my laptop. I lost track of the amount of coffee consumed.
I think 24GB is an acceptable unit of measurement for coffee. - Kevin Johnson
How much data would that be if I were to teleport that amount of coffee? - Stephan from iPhone
uh... about 24GB worth... :) - Kevin Johnson
GigaBeans - Kevin Johnson
Ha, today that increased by about 7GBeans! - Stephan from iPhone
What is your current favorite software? - Sean McBride
My favorite software is Siemens TIA Portal v13. It has its flaws but it clearly has been designed to make engineering easier. - Stephan from iPhone
That $39/mo offer from Wind Mobile (unlimited data Can/US and unlimited voice Canada, 2500 min US) would save me a pile if I would pay off my remaining device balance and could bring my own phone.
I use these guys: https://republicwireless.com/ and have had good luck with it. Was just looking to see if they handled Canada and technically they don't, but their FAQ says you can make and receive calls from Canadian numbers without incurring roaming or other penalties. - Sir Shuping is just sir
I'd rather play it safe and stay on this side of the border. :) - Stephan from iPhone
Installing 30GB of software is not unlike watching paint dry.
My wife did the snow removal routine this morning. One of the last times. Yesterday, I was able to slide into my boot, and, much to my surprise, was able to take it off without too much hassle. Also, I ditched the crutches. For those moments I need it, I now have a cane. That makes me so happy. (The snow makes me want to sit own and cry, though.)
Yeah for healing! Snow is boo! - Janet from FFHound!
Spring will be here in a month and a half. We are already planning for the summer. :-) - Stephan
Snow makes me want to sit down and cry and I have no issues with walking. =) - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Those emotions must come at a later age, when you realize all the chores involved. The girls love it, even though it was -24C this morning. :-) - Stephan
I'm glad you're well on the mend. - Spidra Webster
Thank you. I'm glad I can see light at the end of the tunnel. - Stephan from iPhone
Please be careful with all that ice & snow. Don't walk anywhere that has not been shoveled, salted, and tested by someone else. We don't want you falling and undoing any recovery you have made thus far. - April Russo
April, that would mean I can't walk anywhere here. :) But snow-covered ice is pretty much my biggest enemy. - Stephan from iPhone
My husband began his recovery from being hit by a car, in winter. I was very protective of him and wouldn't let him outside unless the ground was clear of ALL ice & snow. For me, this meant a daily walk around our apartment building with a shovel and a bag of salt, to make sure he had a safe track-like exercise path that went completely around the building. (on my Fitbit, it's about 100... more... - April Russo
I use a cane for the walk to/from my vehicle. It's the unexpected unevenness that sometimes hurts the foot due to a spot with hard snow. I'll live. - Stephan from iPhone
My two little girls know what Daddy needs in his briefcase. Priorities! http://ow.ly/i/8uf8o

Come 3 o'clock when you need a sugar hit... - Johnny from iPhone
It's one of the few things I almost never eat. I just thought it was so thoughtful of them. :-) - Stephan from iPhone
I love it how Flash file names change with each version because adapting my firewall rules is my favorite waste of time.
Why did I send that to your feed as well? I blame Flash. - Stephan
SAVIOUR OF THE UNIVERSE!! *snicker* - Big Joe Silence
Hm? - Amit Patel
Amit, I meant for example: FlashUtil32_16_0_0_296_Plugin.exe -- unless you were responding to Joe. :) - Stephan from iPhone
Oh hm, interesting. I haven't installed Flash on Windows but on Mac I see the version number in the folder instead of in the installer executable: /homebrew-cask/Caskroom/flash/16.0.0.296/Install\ Adobe\ Flash\ Player.pkg - Amit Patel
That would impact the firewall similarly. I am not a fan of software that does that, unless several versions can live in parallel. - Stephan from iPhone

I have the feeling that they are experimenting in this area. The other day I saw the LTE indication. - Stephan from iPhone
Just read how FaceBook is the most downloaded mobile app. Wouldn't that make sense since they update it so frequently?
I guess I assumed download counts were for new users, not users downloading updates. - Andrew C (✔)
The article I read didn't specify, but that would make sense. - Stephan from iPhone
