    That's a little bit of a flag. Sounds like the N7 2012 to me (the Gen 1 model)

    Are you a rooter? If so, root it from 5.0.2 and up. I'm on 5.0.1 and the memory leaks for me are bad enough for me go "crash something, smash something" (Method Man + Redman reference) at times.

    I actually have an Acer Iconia 7 that was abandoned by Acer as far as the firmware goes. I wanted to root it to Kit Kat but I can't find any ROM. And because I'm sometimes lazy, I thought of the Nexus...

    ... or a previous gen iPad Air and be happy like Ed. He he

    I went to bed annoyed at my internet provider. The thing dropped out at a very bad time. I was doing some banking.
    Similar thing happened here; the power went out.. Which of course didn't affect me on my iPad, but the GF and her kid were freaking out, and the wifi went out obviously, all their PCs in the house rebooting etc (except for mine which are on a UPS backup power/conditioner). The power came right back on (storm related.. It's been raining heavy all day here) and then off again a couple times, flickering on and off.. Ended up just going to bed.

    Understand. I just worry about people who burn themselves out. It's not a good thing.
    Yes, it is. My current job has taught me this one well.

    Still, I'm halfway through my MSW with a 3.78 GPA amidst all this meat grinder schedule. So I must be doing something well enough...

    "Survive and advance" is my motto these days...

    Some days I really don't like this job. It might be time to start looking for another, casually.
    I know exactly what you mean!

    Be sure to find a place you like to work at. Money isn't everything. Environment and people are just as important. Also, doing what you want to do helps. :)
    Yup! That's what they say... Once you find something you truly enjoy doing, you'll never have to work another day in your life.

    That's semi true. :P

    My wife is a professional career counsellor/coach. She's a realist when it comes to careers. Lots of people think there are 'dream' jobs but they simply don't exist for everyone. A career is a complex thing that we oversimplify all too often.

    That doesn't mean you can't enjoy your work or think it's a dream but there are lots of mistakes that people make about what a 'dream' job truly is.

    I wouldn't touch it because of some of the charging issues I've heard and the fact it is now a 3 y.o. tablet in Android years..unless you're getting it for an insanely, insanely cheap price.

    Take on the basis of experience.

    To give you an idea of what my favourite is - dark chocolate fudge brownie with hazel nuts

    It's simplistic but very yummy. I often find some things are overly sweet and I've knocked down my sweet tooth somewhat over the years. The idea of a Oreo brownie makes my teeth ache.

    Sounds like we're both overdue.

    I'd like to take a week off this spring/early summer and go spend it with my father up in MA., out on the Cape (Cape Cod - S. Yarmouth is where he lives).

    The only problem here, is finding someone competent enough to "be me" while I'm gone...

    Indeed. I learned a long time ago that the work will still be there whether you there or not, so make sure to get a very good night's sleep the night before you return to work from vacation.

    One of my friends would like to visit in may, so that's no vacation. The GF and I are in preliminary talks about a Vegas trip in August...well see how that goes.

    You and yours have been taking enough vacations for all the regulars here, so that's cool. Gotta live vicariously through Rue sometimes...

    We're all replaceable Ed. Every one of us.

    One thing I've learnt over the years. There are always people waiting to shine, they're just needing the chance to do so.

    I found out I have more days this year for vacation than I thought... well two more. :P

    We booked all our flights for August. I need to book the time off now.

    Yeah. So I'm going to remind the GF about this tomorrow. She's been wanting us to do something for, well, the past year + now. I liked the specials I saw for Vegas but I'm trusting her to sort it out and I just for it since she's gone there before. I haven't gone to the left half of the country yet, so if it happens I'm looking forward to it. I'll take both the Z3 and the 930 and use the 930 merely as a camera.

    Oh I know. This is absolutely true, but I'm not looking for a replacement... I just want someone who can cover me while I take a vacation, and not have everything in shambles upon my return.

    There's also another saying; "nobody's perfect", which is also true.. though some of us are closer than others.
