Mission Peak hike. Stories missed the best part though, the reward of cheese steaks after.

Nine dollar computer became $30 really fast.
Also the nearly 12 month delivery time might have me passing. In 12 months hardkernel might have the c2 out competing with this.

That is what I've been going for! 
Funny, I have a theory that mens testosterone rises some time late in the pregnancy and during the early years of fatherhood. It explains old man muscles.

This was fun....
I and the girlfriend decided that this old Nexus 7 would be great to put in Baby's room for music and wave sounds. 
I Wipe, and Flash it. Test out some things. It's been a while since it really has seen use. I approve, wipe again. Have Girlfriend log into her Gmail... Of course, with two step. Oh this is too much trouble... She doesn't know her password, then her phone is ringing... she has more important things to do... DAMN IT.. it's 5 minutes. I put in hours already. This is for the baby for crying out loud (or to keep him from, really). 
So she puts in the password finally, goes to hand it to me. This is her third attempt to remember the password, plus I'm being sarcastic, so I go for the high five! 
It falls straight to the ground. Now my oldest son had this damn thing for two years. It dropped on the tile (in a case) at least once a day, I swear. But this time... crack!
So it's just the digitizer.. easy, right... NOPE! 
Like most modern phones the digitizer is glued to the LCD. The LCD+Digitizer is $55. The digitizer alone is $16. The Tablet sells in Good condition on Swappa for $75. 
Options are:
Fix it, cause it's broken. The next one then is Attempt to do Digitizer only or buy the full kit.
Other option is; Leave it and use it only via Keyboard/mouse. 

I have a issue with leaving broken or unwanted, but working, electronics to the waste. So fix it, it must be. Since I'm not springing for $55 when a already working one is $75, I chose the Digitizer route with the plan.. separate the two, then test. If LCD is still good, then order Digitzer. If LCD breaks.. go the other route.
Well it took about two hours. I used one post's idea to use clamps to hold the top glass to the table while working it. I ended up using one strand from a bike break cable. Once separated I used my thumbs to roll the LOCA and start a ball. eventually I cleared off the screen. Oh and to start, I used duct tape. It works pretty well for peeling back the LOCA. In the end it worked. The screen is fine but the light distribution layer is a little tweaked. I have some spots I can see from the boarders, but it's not really an issue. 
You can see the LOCA ball I collected. 

Current status, Digitizer ordered. Since it's the baby's tablet, I'm OK with it not being perfect, I just need the touch screen to work. 

So Thanks +Tiffany Schultz, This has been fun... Next time, hold on to the dumb thing.

Employment
  • Avery Technologies
    Owner, 2008 - present
    I own it and clean the toilets... I do the field work, the in house repairs and the Help desk support. I'm always looking for new and better ways to do things for my customers. I believe the mobile industry is the future and I'm working to bring that in the stores. Still the Technologist.
  • Ames Audio
    Chief Engineer, 2002 - 2004
    Known as the king of squeeze. I could get things where they didn't belong in a car. I was the technologist. I designed circuits to interface steering wheel controls that instead controlled the Air Ride or did something else. I also was the main installer and trouble shooter of the Alarm systems and electronics.
  • Cingular Wireless Llc
    Wharehouse Operations, 2001 - 2002
    I started out as a temp doing filing. Got hired on as a perm/temp to work in the warehouse. Later Politics took me out as I was thrown under the bus by those trying to climb the ladder. I was just trying to do my job. I was across the way from a stereo shop that my friend from Good Guys was doing work at. I turned in my papers that day.
  • Pacific Bell
    CO Technician, 1998 - 1999
    C.O. Technician. I ran jumpers from here to there. It was a little boring but a good job. I was too young to appreciate it.
  • GoogGuys
    Car Audio Installer, 1999 - 2000
    I came back to work under a friend who I met the first time. I was the most knowledgeable installer there. Installer
  • Bestbuy.com Llc
    Car Audio Installer, 2000 - 2001
    Yes he won me over. He was a well known installer and offered a lot to learn. BestBuy was good. But the lack of custom work left something to be desired. Just an Installer
  • GoodGuys
    Car Audio Installer, 2001 - 2001
    I was hired based off a few photos of things I had done. The Manager then quit for BestBuy a week later, taking the staff with him. All but one. I had to run the show for the next two weeks. I proved my stuff. He came recruiting me soon after. Installer, Lead for some time.
