I can text from my PC using Pulse app, but to sign up I have to pay.

99 cents a month
5.99 a year
or 10.99 lifetime which seems like a pretty good deal

Also I have 6.81 in my Google wallet. I have no idea what I'd use it for so maybe I should just grab the 1 year.

rockshard PhD but can I use it to see my phone texts on my PC

rockshard PhD actually, maybe it can? I should try using the app on my phone first and then when I log in on my pc it'll all be there.

Husky Wing Yes, your texts will be visible on either platform, since it's not just a matter of your browser or phone receiving the text, but of Google receiving it.

Has anyone ever tried ordering take-out from PrimeNow.com?

It gives me a choice of a bunch of restaurants in the area, but no matter which one I pick it says "Delivery is currently unavailable. Check back again soon." Any idea what is up with that?

When it asks me to specify the printer's TCP/IP address, there are two fields: address, and hostname. Anything I type in the address field gets copied to hostname. So as I type 192.168.1.105 the numbers get copied in the other field so I don't have to type it twice. But something odd happens. As soon as I add the last 5, the hostname gets changed to 192.168.1.105_2. When I correct it and click continue, after a few seconds of searching for the printer I get a message saying that a port with that name already exists and I have to change it.

I don't know whats up with that. It does not happen if I choose 192.168.1.106. Could this be a clue as to why the printer isn't being recognized?

rockshard PhD No, that's probably not it at all.

rockshard PhD I have to reckon the most likely explanation is that there's a router or splitter connecting the printer to the wifi, and either it isn't powered on or it just needs a quick reboot.

I am so damn spoiled, I have my old PSP-1000 back for just one week and already I want it to be a 3000. I think I should upgrade. Still haven't sold the iPad yet, I could sell it and then buy a 3000 with the money. That's not fast enough though. That could easily take two weeks, what the hell am I supposed to do until then?? It's gonna be hard to play on the 1000 now because no matter what game I pick I'd have a slightly better experience if I waited and played it on the 3000. I guess I could pick launch titles and stuff, to get an accurate experience. That's one perk of the 1000, you feel like you have a piece of gaming history. When you realize it came out in 2004, the screen is not bad by any means. But I find myself rationing games to either model. "This I definitely want to play on the 3000" "This I definitely should play on the 1000" For every game I need to decide. It would be simpler if both are 3000s so I can just play any game I want to, especially now that the 1000 has become my main. Why is the older model my main?? Time to upgrade it!

Demi Axersia My first PSP was a 2000, but I only had it for about a week before the place I bought it from started selling the 3000 at the same price... I was able to return it and got the 3000 instead. It was like night and day. Somewhat literally considering the 3000's screen can get like 10x brighter. The 2000's screen also had some serious ghosting going on, and the loading times were so long it made certain RPGs like PopoloCrois a chore to play. The ergonomics were also quite poor with lots of sharp edges. All of this was fixed with the 3000. It really felt like this it was the best gaming handheld ever made at that point. Of course, it's been supplanted by the AMOLED Vita since then. Anyway, if the 1000 feels anything like the 2000, I think I'd rather stick to the 3000.

rockshard PhD well 2000 has round edges, but 3000's are even rounder. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_zZ7bTZED248/Se17iHyYc7I/AAAAAAAAAHM/ZZhZpIkLxSg/s400/4.jpg (2000 top, 3000 bottom) The 1000 has sharp edges. The 1000 screen is nearly identical to the 2000. The 2000 backlight is about 5-10 percent brighter, but that's about it. You still have washed out colors and ghosting. The 3000 screen is where it's at, between those three models at least.

The printer isn't working. That's just great. As if I didn't have enough crap to deal with.

Technically it can still printed, but it doesn't seem to be connected to wifi. It has an IP address but doesn't have a host name. I'm not sure what the problem is.
I tried restarting the wifi but that didn't work. I also tried starting all over by adding a new printer from scratch but that doesn't seem to work either. I download some HP software and punch in the printer's IP address but it's not detected. Anyone have any ideas as to what this means?

I have a social security hearing coming up in September. But I don't want to go. In fact I'm wondering if I should fight this somehow. I could do something like send in the form saying I'll show up but not show up, or send in the form without filling anything out. Though what I could also do is simply check in the box saying I can't make it, or ignore the form altogether which would be the most convenient option.

At first I was ashamed of myself for not wanting to go and feeling like I'm lazy. (possibly due to my disciplinarian brainwashing) But I've started to realize that maybe I'm not wrong. This is essentially a form of terrorism. They're holding my social security hostage and forcing me to beg for it, literally. And why would you schedule this three months in advance. If someone can wait three months for something then they probably don't need it anymore, dontcha think? I don't even know what I stand to gain, which makes this all the more awkward. What I *do* know is that this is ruining me, and that I shouldn't have to put up with that. Not anymore.

I am posting this here just so if I do act, I don't feel like I'm acting alone on my crazy whims, but something that has been at least somewhat thought out, discussed.

I think I've finally learned that it's not worth it to create anything. Until now I wasn't sure if this was actually true, or that I could stomach such a harsh truth, but now I've found myself starting to make peace with it which is something I didn't expect would happen. I might as well just consume other people's work for the rest of my life, although when I put it that way it that sounds kind of hypocritical.

rockshard PhD it smells of government incompetence. They're hiring the same company who screwed up a previous job, and on top of that they're giving them less time than originally planned to finish it (and fining them $400,000 every day they go over schedule) meaning it will be a rush job. This reminds me of that old Penn & Teller episode about the WTC reconstruction efforts. Same city, even.

I hear there's a live action Aladdin in the works and Will Smith is the genie.

What timing that I'm making an Aladdin game, now I wonder if people think the game is in response to the new movie. Or will it somehow benefit me because everyone will be on an Aladdin kick? How interesting, in any case. Let's see if I can actually finish my game before the movie releases, because frankly, I'm working at a snail's pace here. The race is on.
