I haven't had any soda to drink in almost two months, so a virtual Coke will have to do. Today is the 11th anniversary of one of my best friends being killed in a car accident, and Ken was a Coca-Cola fiend.

Through Ken, and reflecting on his death over the past eleven years, I strive to be a better person, friend, mentor and teacher, and a listening ear to those around me. I don't always succeed, but I truly try my best to be the kind of person that encourages growth in those around me.

Ken, you are missed. Thanks for helping me find my path to helping others find a path. #RIP

I love that Fi auto connected to WiFi and reports that the network may be monitored. I also did a one hour phone call driving around the greater Denver area yesterday and didn't have any issues with poor audio quality or signal drops during the call.

I opted out a little differently.

If you're on Android and use Hangouts for SMS/MMS, follow these steps to protect yourself from the Android security bug about prefetching MMS:

In Hangouts, tap on the top left icon (the horizontal lines), go into Settings, and then pick "SMS" at the bottom of the list.

Scroll down and look for the setting that says "Auto retrieve MMS" and remove the checkmark.

I ported my Google Voice number to Fi, which is working great. I was hoping I could have created a new Google Voice account on another Email address which forwards to Fi (my old GV number) but I get an error saying "There was an error with your request. Please try again." but no further explanation.

I'm all set up with Fi and have tested phone calls and SMS and it's working great (they ported my Google Voice number within a few minutes). My question is about some android update that was supposed to trigger after final setup. My phone says my "system is up to date" and that there are no updates to download. I'm wondering if a previous N6 update took care of that? Can someone share a screenshot of their baseband version, kernel version and build number?

Well that sucks! Many many people already had an N6 from elsewhere. Shouldn't Fi have thought about that?

Changed my avatar on a work service to a Yoda version of the cartoon "Tux" linux mascot. The conversation went something like this:

Me: I figured Yoda was fitting ... I'm old, I share a lot of wisdom, and I talk funny 'cause I'm Canadian.
Ryan: But you don't have a lightsaber.
Me: That you know of.
Ryan: I know you. If you had a lightsaber you'd be showing that off.
Me: Yeah ... probably.

We had uboxes shipped here from California and the staff here have been nothing but pleasant and professional. We rented a truck from them to take stuff from the uboxes to our apartment and the rental process was quick and painless.

Very friendly staff, but our breakfast order got "lost in the computer" and I've been waiting over forty minutes with two little kids, no refills offered or anything.
