SwiftKey has saved me 5,000 keystrokes! Check it out at http://swiftkey.net

I love SwiftKey. 

A friend of mine, +James Neal and I just started getting into hiking.  We started out at Spurgeon Hollow Loop near Delaney Park in the Jackson-Washington State Park, which is an 8 mile trail.  James has done it 3 times so far and I have done the trail with him 2 of those times.  

We both went down there Feb. 8th and had a great time.  We decided to try to get back down there once a month when possible.  We just went again this past Sunday and had a good hike again.  

I'm pretty damn out of shape, and there are three good size hills down there.  Well the first hill pretty well kicked my ass!  I had to stop 4 or 5 times, hell, maybe it was 6 times because my legs were on fire and I was out of breath.  The second hill, I had to stop 3 times and the last hill I think I had to stop a couple times.  The second time down there, this past weekend, I used a hiking pole the whole time and actually stretched my legs a little before getting into the first hill.  Made it up all three hills without stopping and it went great.  I didn't realize just how much a hiking pole helps.  

The loop has a semi-loop that comes off the north part of the main loop and has an offshoot trail around the southeast part of the loop that heads south towards Louisville, KY., so the plan is to condition ourselves by adding in the extra loop in a month or so, then next January or February head down the south leg and stay a night or two on the trail.  

If anyone has any tips for beginner hikers, it would be much appreciated.

Watching Firefly (The Message episode) right now... Right after Jayne gets his hat and Mal and Zoe open their crate... "What'd 'yal order a dead guy for?"

Shiny quote. I'd have to say that my favorite episode is "Out of Gas". 

I am obviously missing something, I cannot figure out how to search within communities on the G+ app. Anyone know how?

I wish I knew how to make live wallpapers for Android.

I would make this Browncoats image have the flaring light from behind, like in the Firefly logo at the beginning of each episode. Have the light moving around behind in random directions and have an option to have it pulsing in brightness. Also have an option for the light to be stationary.

Any genius live wallpaper creators out there?

A little bit ago my phone wouldn't wake up when I pressed the power button. I let it sit about 10 minutes then tried again and it came on but had the message "Process system isn't responding. Do you want to close it?" with the options to Wait, Report, or OK. I pressed OK, and it let me unlock my phone. After it unlocked I was on the home screen and another message popped up "Clock isn't responding. Do you want to close it?" with the same options. I pressed OK, and it seems to be working just fine now. My phone isn't rooted or anything. I don't even use a different home screen Launcher, just stock Android. I just updated to JB 4.2.1 on Monday via OTA update (I'm on Sprint). The only odd thing I did was to use the "clear Google Framework data, force close, check for updates" method to get the update OTA.

Anyone else have this happen to them, or heard of it?

My home screen. I've tried to go as minimalistic as possible so I can enjoy the live wallpaper.


Using Exodus Pro live wallpaper.

The arching icons along the top is Wave Launcher.

The circled icons in the center is Circle Launcher. I have 3 Circle Launcher widgets along the bottom of the screen and I made their icons transparent.

So normally the screen only has the Google Search Bar at the top. The icons only appear when I want them to.
