Socially. Thinking of rooting my Nexus 7 to CyanogenMod cause Iâ€™m damned sick and tired of this latest Android (Lollipop?) slowing it down and crashing. Hell, I canâ€™t click on any links when in Tumblr without Chrome (or whatever) crashing. Heaven forbid I should want to check Facebook or Google+. So, if I do this, Iâ€™ll probably be offline while getting my Nexus set up again. And I have a hard time believing the amount of â€œAppsâ€ Iâ€™ve installed on this thing!
Turns out Google isnâ€™t supporting my version of the Nexus 7, nor are they selling it, anymore. Updates to the OS may work. Probably not. Lotâ€™s of people are pissed off about that too. Theyâ€™ll know how pissed I am about it the next time I need (want) to buy a tablet; it probably wonâ€™t be anything from Google. Hell, my HTC phone is four years old and it still works fine.
And Iâ€™m not sure about these latest Windows â€œupdatesâ€ either. Seems after a couple of hours of watching a video, the picture starts to look â€œ3Dâ€ (color separation) and, sometimes, the sound goes â€œtinny.â€ Drivers, probably. But it was working fine until the latest batch of updates. Why donâ€™t people test this stuff before they just push it out to everyone?
Not really nice outside, but I got out and did some more whack-weeding anyway. Kinda sorta rained a bit on me while I was doing that. Did some work in the garden. Worked on my field mount for my 6btv antenna; trying to get ready for Field Day. Talked to NC7V down Vista, CA way on 20-meters for a few minutes.
Tried the CyanogenMod auto installer thingie. Didnâ€™t work, of course. That means I have to do it manually. Which involves installing a lot of stuff on my computer and try to follow the directions on screen. Oh, Joy. Not tonight.
