I agree on share to a point, but market share determines the depth of apps available. Most big companies are just now getting around to releasing android apps. For example, I bank at Citizens bank and they just released an android app this year despite having an ios app for 2+ years. The windows phone 7.5 app for them will probably be out... never.

To each his own I guess.
I didn't know the current model (that was released 4 months ago) was considered outdated because a new one might be out in 2 months.

And why wouldn't it make sense to buy an X360 now? If I've never played Halo and really wanted to, why would I wait another year plus just to play them? So I can spend $200 more on technology I might not even use?

Upgrades and new technology only matter if you're actually going to take advantage of it.

That's pretty damn obnoxious. My current job required me to to have three "interviews". It was even weirder when during my second interview the owner forgot I had spoken to one of the managers and it started a really awkward conversation where the manager didn't want to say anything to him to the tune of "you idiot, we already did this".

Thankfully they just called me with the job offer.

You aren't negotiating with Bettman and/or Fehr, are you?

Interview 1: Phone interview with VP of Operations
Interview 2: Phone interview with third party IT vendor
Interview 3: On site interview with VP of Operations/plant tour
Interview 4: On site interview with VP of Operations and President

I couldn't have just met the president when I was there the first time? The guy walked by like 3 times. The VP of Operations even pointed him out and said he might want to meet with me.

So now you need another excuse to get out of work another day for the interview?

Please pardon my idiocy, but I haven't been to a Denny's in like 10 years.

All Denny's are open 24 hours, correct?
They always serve breakfast no matter the time of day right?

I has questions before I answer yours:
1. Can I legally buy a taser at a cop-shop store?
2. How often can I tase a 5'1" ~105lb boy who will be 11 in a couple weeks?
3. If I lose count, nothing too bad will happen, right?

Yesterday was a busy day. Second day in a row I had to have a blood test (I could do the cholesterol test on Friday because I wasn't fasting when I went to the doctor). Then I had a meeting with my lead asst coach who wasn't going to be at practice because of a Darien Lake concert that he had to be at at 5pm and our practice was at 4pm.

Then I went to the gym, went to practice, flew straight to Darien Lake, had a decent time, then came home and crashed.

Today will be a lazy day where I go to church, maybe hook up to talk to a friend, and then be lazy and prepare for tomorrow's big court date.

I need to get back into my house so bad. I miss seeing my kids so much...
Mea culpa, JB, I could have tipped you off to that possibility...

Advantage: Myllz. This guy gets it.

btw, my nephew got Halo for his birthday this weekend. He's 10. There's a lot of violence in that game.

And he never went back
Now he smokes too much
He's got a permanent hack

I'd like to thank Mr.Schlongg for making monday a little less awful.

I googled Yoda 900, apparently Yoda was 900 when he died and one of the lines was something to the effect of "See how good you look when you're 900" in non yoda english.

The phone number is a real house # for a elderly couple in Holland.

Dude, with all due respect... You really shouldn't be posting personal info like that here. Think twice about doing that. Put yourself in their shoes.

Another good day in court, even if I'm not back in the house yet.

#1 - I get to see my oldest at any hockey function moving forward.

#2 - I got my oldest son to a free hockey clinic last night over my wife's protest that he had karate. He had time to do both, she just didn't want to do the running around that a single mom of 3 busy kids needs to do.

#3 - Over the protest of the law guardian, I was given unsupervised visitation on Thursday evening and Sunday afternoon. Plus, the Thursday evening was over my wife's protest due to me dropping the kids off at karate. The referee obviously doesn't care that my wife is worried about me being around karate. Also, she'll have to return from the karate tournament in PA on Saturday sooner than planned due to the visit on Sunday.

#4 - The referee is postponing any talk of child support. My lawyer brought up the point that my wife has drained over $7k from our joint accounts since the OOP was signed. My wife claimed that she just paid her lawyer repaid a loan to her parents. My lawyer said the referee saw right through that loan repayment thing and that my wife messed up (again) when saying that.

My lawyer was into it yesterday as he's "frosted" that she got me kicked out of the house when even she admits I had been fine for over two weeks.

I also talked to my lawyer about the very different body language and attitude between my wife and I. I am comfortable in my own skin because I'm an open book and being open and honest. My wife is all tense because she continues to bury herself with all her lies and exaggerations.

What 'other info'? The only stuff on there that wasn't business related info was the false phone number.

Might be? The new one is announced and will be released shortly.

Might as well go buy the iPhone 4S, given the new one will be out tomorrow. It isn't outdated yet either! /facepalm

I think that was the longest HFBoards hiatus I ever took.

Then again, with this impending lockout, maybe it should be longer.

Moving sucks. But moving into your forever home rocks.

Working with 3 people's schedules (mine, the HR director's and the supervisor's) to schedule an interview isn't easy.

edit: 10 emails later I have an interview Monday at 4.
