A similar story happened with this european guy. His HTC was stolen in Spain I think, but he had a dropbox account that syncs the photos from the device on his computer.
He made a blog where he posts every photo that is taken with the phone.

I know everything seems hard at first. But trust me, those are the easy stuff :). Try KhanAcademy, it's a good source of math tutorials. Although they usually tackle the easy stuff when it comes to uni math.

But the thing is when I get up really early in the morning ( like 6), the easiest thing for me to eat is cereals with milk( Müsli). I never feel sick of it, though the truth is after about 2-3 hours I feel hungry.
What do you eat in the morning?
Also, I've been keeping with the ab workout. So far there's no change, except a slight "V" shape started forming on the lower part of the body.

After working on my current map, which turns to be a total mess of interactive elements, I learned that Goldsource is all about creating a scene which fools you into thinking it is detailed. Like this one, minimal "fine" details, yet looks polished.

in Hammer: Can't select faces Post #316017
Moved my mapping activity on the laptop for now. Odd and annoying problem: I can't select brushes\faces from up close. It's as if they have some kind of specific point where I can only select them, or from a great distance, but that is clearly not the solution.
I suspect it has something to do with the Intel Drivers perhaps? I have an Intel HD4000 graphics on my laptop and Nvidia 650m ( hl1 is forced to use HD4000, idk why, but it works fine anyway).

Have any idea what's the key combination?

[EDIT] I think I'm pushing Half-Life to its limits, though it works pretty well. The current map I'm working on has areas with 6000w_poly, yet it stays at a clean 60fps. And this is on my old HD4850.
I am thankful that at least the compile times have been ridiculously improved since I last tackled with Goldsource maps. This outside map would've taken hours to compile otherwise.
Fun fact: I am mapping on the big screen, putting the RMF in a dropbox folder, and compiling on the laptop which has an i7 CPU.

Autumn came. The leaves of the trees didn't yet catch that beautiful golden color, as it was just the beginning of September. The sun lost some of its power to caress the skin with its gentle rays.
Today, the sun didn't even show up. It was raining... the atmosphere soaked wet.
Brian Banister was watching through his dirty apartment window the birds as they disappeared on the horizon. He held his old pen with his right hand, sketching in the air unrecognizable words. He loved his pen, it was a gift from his father. In front of him, on a brown desk made of massive wood, stood a white sheet of paper. It was blank. Brian felt like an entire tub of lead was balancing on his soul. The delicate movements of his hand changed into contorting motions. He began to feel furious.

Well for some time I wanted to get my abs to look better. I took the Ab workout A6W from the Play store. It helps you make exercises for a flat stomach. The first day is supposed to be the easiest, it only takes 5 minutes.

Half-way going through, I thought I was going to break in half.
I was strict paleo (besides supplements) for 5 months to look good for the summer. I would guess around 7-8% body fat. Right now, I am eating a ridiculous amount of calories a day to get huge just to starve myself again next summer.
Mariowned, please elaborate on this. I've read a bit along the subject of the paleo diet, even downloaded a book but never got into the details. Does going paleo mean you can't have milk? I love milk! (yeah, I've read that gluten and lactose is some bad stuff but I'm not that allergic to stuff- not even dry hay).
Also, how would I figure out how much body fat I have without using specialized tools?

I usually eat very spicy things, and with each soup a hot pepper. Hot peppers be burnin' the fat.

Captain Yerror! I believe contests should have some restrictions that underline each contestant's creativity. In this case though, I think the contest is more about producing funny results, or inspirational ones.

I've had my hands for a day on a Galaxy Tab2. It works and looks great. Sadly, I can't afford it.

DiscoStu, a tablet is much more than it's advertised. They're meant for regular consumers but with all those sensors and their versatility power they can be used in fun and creative ways. I'd even delve into developing Android applications.
Also, if you can get a way to rip DVD's to an .avi (or similar) file, or perhaps use some other popular way to get movies in that format, then it is excellent for watching movies or TV shows while commuting.
Yeah I'd use Format Factory or Handbrake for that.

Newly added in the category of "shit I don't need, but imma buy anyway" is the tablet.

After buying a budget price 10" tablet and seeing the horrible quality( performance-wise it was excellent, but battery life and screen were appaling) I began being more skeptical. The thing is, for the amount of time I've used it, I thought it was pretty useful in "consuming" stuff from the web. It could even help me relax more as I can go earlier to bed, and even if I don't fall asleep at least laying in the bed is better than standing on a chair for 2 more hours. After 2 days the tablet's screen got broken so I sent it to the service. I requested the money back because I don't need that crap anymore.

Now after doing some research people recommended me the Asus Memo Pad HD 7. It's not top notch quality, and only 7 inch, but it has an IPS screen, good performance and most importantly, 10 hours of battery life. I guess it would be perfect for my commutes. The only thing I'm concerned about is the screen size. I realize now that 10inch is a bit big for public places, but isn't 7 inch too small to view videos? For reading it must be ok.

I wouldn't have posted this thread if I wasn't having 2 options. If the tablet was the only thing I wished to buy, I'd go for it, or maybe wait for a 10". But for a lot of time I wanted to buy an SSD for my notebook, and this is the alternative to the tablet: 128Gb 2.5 inch Samsung 840 Pro Series. The thing is, a notebook is much larger and heavier than a tablet, and I only use it when traveling by train. I rarely carry it with me otherwise.

So I have 2 questions.

1. Do you have a tablet, and if yes, what has it helped you with most?
2. Is it worth spending the money for making my laptop speedier?( and possibly increasing battery life by a few tens of minutes)
