    I feel your pain, but on the otherside of the fence. Dealing with a Charter Tech who is telling me to reinstall my NIC to fix my speed issue. :wallbash::wallbash::wallbash::wallbash::wallbash:

    I've been wanting to get a new smartphone for a while, looking at the iPhone, new Android phones, the new Blackberry etc.

    Everything has horrible battery life.

    Why won't HTC or Motorola or whoever make a slightly thick phone with a huge battery? I'd go for something a bit thicker than my Blackberry Curve 8310 if it meant that I could easily get through a couple days of use without charging.

    I can use my Touch Pro 2 for about 2-3 days straight without having to charge it, and I can average about 12 hours on a full charge with full data usage and Media Player running.

    I am more nervous about my problem than I thought I would be. I think for the first time ever I am genuinely concerned about my health.

    A bad but not so severe news tomorrow would be a good kick in the ass to start taking care of myself.

    Yeah unfortunately, he has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and the muscle wasting is starting to affect his legs - he's starting to get tired and weaker now.

    On top of that, my youngest who already has Spina Bifida has Duchenne too (it's hereditary) so the same will happen to him (although he can't walk due to the SB).

    Worst part is the short life excpectancy, but we have to stay positive for them both and make everyday as fun as it can be:thumb:

    Sinking in regret over a lost month. My ex-girlfriend made a thousand mistakes but so did I. We'll never have that time ever again. I'm going off to college tomorrow. Things won't be the same after this.

    There will always be a part of me that loves her. I just wish I had the time to do so with her.

    A hand written letter and time apart can sometimes turn things around. What you got to loose?

    You didn't make the choice to waste it dude. Regret is good, because it helps you make better decisions in the future, but don't let it drag you down.

    You're going to college.

    American films tell the rest of the world that this is when girls go wild and boys get laid every day. You'll be fine :hip:
