Here's an Android Lollipop tip to solve a problem that's been bugging me, that I just solved!

I have a WAV of R2D2 that I use for my Text Messages notification sound.  I put this file in a folder on my phone called "Ringtones" - along with my phone ringtones, as I did on previous versions of Android.

And yet, when I go to change the notification sound, the R2D2 sound effect is not available to choose.

I moved the WAV into the NOTIFICATIONS folder on my phone, and viola, it's on the list now and everytime I get a text message, R2D2 beeps at me.  Like the Star Wars nerd I am.

Maybe this was obvious to everyone else, but it drove me nuts for weeks recently until I sat down and fixed it today.

Haha, I used to do this with the 'Droid' notification I use for email. Except I finally disabled it and now I`m just silent with Android Wear notifications

Bah, I couldn't figure out what any of this was for.  Then I saw Microsoft.  Bah Microsoft.

+Justin Frasure - You said it, that is an awesomely weird wonderful moment. I swear, I'll miss Roger more than anyone. Sweet misogynistic, hedonistic, racist, slackass Roger. God love his warped mustachioed self!

Here's a shot in the dark:

I assume many of my followers here on Google+ have an interest in tech.I have a few app ideas I've been tinkering with that I would like to move forward on.

Are there any developers out there who would be interested in potentially working with me?

Looking for someone who can do light front end (Don't need a designer yet), and heavy back end. Not too specific about platform, so open to PHP, Ruby on Rails, or Python. 

Get in touch with me by e-mailing me via my about.me/ronxo page - let me know what you do and some links to your work.

Might be good because I thought the old UI was really unintuitive. Also might be bad because I had finally gotten used to it!

Just signed up for Google Contributor. Either it’s cutting edge stuff or I’m a sucker. We’ll see...

UPDATE: I’ll give Google Contributor this, the function to see a photo of your choice instead of banners? Genius. I now see Morrissey instead of ads
