Chit Chat Thread for the week of November 10, 2008

 

This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related, you can discuss whatever you would like, as long as it is clean. Remember we have families that have their children involved in the GPS fun and we don't want to make parents feel uncomfortable when their children ask what that word means.

Have fun...

This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

Why

I was just skimming through a bunch of unread threads and noticed that there was some discussion about why we need some poi locations. Some examples given were Olive Garden, Speed Cameras and Red light cameras. I go out to the same restaurant every morning and activate the GPS. I guess it is because it is a fascinating gadget and I like to hear Karen announce the street names. I even turn her on again on the way home, It drives the wife absolutely mad and she argues with Karen. Am I completely nuts, or is that one of the reasons we like our toys and long lists of poi locations. I really could find my way home even without the breadcrumbs.

BlackBerry

That I'm adding this comment with my BlackBerry tells me two things.
1) Poi Factory is not optimally designed for the small screen of a cell phone.

2) The work is slow today.

Because you had his tooth removed or because you don't call him snaggle tooth anymore? grin

I hope he feels better, is he a old cat?

He's still called gris gris.... except when he wakes me at 5 a.m. (which he does frequently) or when I step on a fur ball, then I have a few other names I call him... (The choice one end with "head") evil But he does seem to feel better... He didn't wake-me till 5:30 a.m. this morning.. rolleyes edit: hmmmm that's kinda redundent isn't it?

Isn't it funny how so many stores have the Wii and WiiFit in stock now that people are not spending money? Shortage? Oscar Mayer balonie! hahaha.

Yeah, the Wii is all over

Yeah, the Wii is all over the place now, shortage is probably over for the moment unless people start buying it all up for Christmas but probably won't happen due to the economy.

Shorts almost never

Shorts almost never put away here in Flor-i-duh.
Did wear long jeans for 2-3 days a couple of weeks ago when temps dipped all the way down to 44 overnight and ONLY 60 during the day.
Typically long pants from Dec. 15th to March 1st but always have the shorts ready!

Watch your antivirus software

I just got my laptop back from having the monitor fixed while they had it they cleaned up my start up menue and turned off my software. That night I got 29 different virus and now they have to reformat my hard drive as one is enbeded so far that it would run very much if at all. mad

If I counted correctly this is 40.

Thinking about a Garmin upgrade this year for Christmas, 760 is looking as the winner.

Who

They are a local here in Ut but are a very good company we use them for the city and the fire dept computors. what they done was put two addidional pieces of software on but forgot to put they in the startup. they are fixing the problem free. I think they just got busy and didn't complete all the steps.

The Shiny-Walled Box

An Amish boy and his father were visiting a nearby mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny silver walls that moved apart and back together by themselves.
The lad asked, "what is this father?"
The father, having never seen an elevator, responded, "I have no idea what it is."
While the boy and his father were watching wide-eyed, an old lady in a wheelchair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched as small circles lit up above the walls.
The walls opened up again and a beautiful twenty-four-year-old woman stepped out.
The father looked at his son anxiously and said, "Go get your mother."
