I'd recommend the durian. Not only does it have a spiky husk, it also smells like a wet dog with onion breath pooping out dead skunks in a dumpster.

Nice.

There's this road in my town called "The Red Mile." A local business has its base on this road and uses its name. There's a sign posted on a very, very busy street that intersects said road. "THE RED MILE" is written across it in all caps. Someone painted over the bottom prong of that last "E."

That's a complicated question.

If you got your phone a year ago, you probably have something in the 2.X range, so eclair, froyo or gingerbread. The only way to know for sure is to look at the OS version in your settings app. The updates can sometimes be done over the air, but my phones (both versions of the Xperia) required a physical connection to my PC via USB. There are ways in which you can upgrade your phone "unoficially," but unlike with PC, ...

It's way above novice and a good bump past apprentice and journeyman. I guess an expert would have sold an extra line and a master would have sold her the store franchise.

I never really got past the "Hello World" stuff without getting annoyed. I enjoy coding, but I don't have the patience for dealing with dependencies and namespaces and such, so I just stick with my lua.

Eclipse is an IDE,

which is basically just a programming environment. To program Android, you download an SDK called "JDK" for Java and then a separate one for Android... though I can't recall its name at the moment. Corona is pretty much a lua interpreter for Android that builds your lua files into the Java package.

Or get the Corona SDK

and learn lua instead! I think you have to buy a license from Corona to sell anything on the market, though.

They've already had Doughnut, so I'd place my bets on something else. Maybe Jellybean. For K, Key Lime Pie sounds good to me. It'd also work as a name for that Android version.

This just happened to an agent within earshot of my desk. All I have is one side of the conversation. "OK, sir. Now I'm going to call your phone and test to make sure that the voicemail is working. Don't answer the phone... I'm going to leave a test voicemail and then come back to this line, OK? ... OK, sir... I need you to go back to the other line and I'm going to call again. I ...

You just have to create the correct directory structure on the SD cart root. I can't remember that structure, but it's easy enough to look up.

type the word "spring" in one attempt without thinking about it really hard? I can't.

which I would rather describe with little specific detail, involves receiving mail from people. The contents of the first envelope that I opened today featured what appeared to be a polka-dotted booger stuck to the top. The next one randomly contained a photocopy of a birth certificate. I'm just completely exhausted with people today.

Yup.

Pretty much, and this is coming from a guy with an art degree. Paying $1,500 for a middle-end laptop is like so Bohemian, right?

I dislike the image that they've cultivated. I dislike the sense of superiority that they place upon their customers. I dislike the fact that they advertise in such a way that suggests that everyone who does not use their products is a retarded caveman. I dislike the fact that they suggest that all of their customers are prolific music producers and video editors based on the notion that their computers come pre-loaded with software for prolific ...

If I have nothing to say about the news, I'll continue to say nothing about the news. It's not like my insight over there is going to pay my rent for the Lounge.

Look at the other side of the coin, though. A lot of us are here because it's one of the very few sites that our call centers allow us to visit. We're all so steeped in the wireless industry at work that we use the lounge as a place to just be people. Is it really that sad?

I only really care about one phone's failure rate, frankly, and that's my own. Band wagoners of every shape and color are annoying.

Yeah, the way they're being tight-lipped about it is why I don't want to say much. Wasn't my center either, though.

Nope, the paper rule is definitely not new, and you're not supposed to have anything non-work related that doesn't fit inside an 8x10 frame, and only one such article that does. I'm not saying that it's fun, but they haven't changed anything other than their attitudes.

I don't know how much I should really say, but what I heard was that it was more than $1.4M, and it wasn't just one person or one account. Also, what we're dealing with is nothing compared to what's going on at the call center where the biggest event happened. Lastly, these aren't new rules. They've been on the books forever. They've just now started to strictly enforce them.

I don't buy it. The proper procedure is to call everyone who sends you a text with a phone number without thinking twice about it.

...I become suspicious of you. Most people don't know the PIN on their accounts. Why do you know yours so quickly? Why don't you have to mumble through every birthday you've ever memorized? Did you steal the PIN from somebody? DID YOU?
