Firstly, thank you for being such a proactive and dedicated developer. You're so enthusiastic and innovative.

However, Sonar just hasn't been working for me. I tried using the feature on my Nexus 6P (7.0, Stock, Rooted, No customizations or frameworks), and it just isn't working.

You can see that the Monday image highlights the lack of movement and sound, and general sleeping updates before the critical update, but there was no change on the Tuesday after the update. The phone was on my bedside locker, plugged in at all times, facing me, less than 30cm from where I sleep. Airplane Mode was on, but this makes no difference.

Do you have any idea why this may be the case? I can forward some logs, but I wouldn't publish them on this forum without stripping data from it.

On a side note, Sonar seems to give loud 'smacking' noise every few seconds when the volume is up full blast. It keeps you from sleeping! But, this isn't as relevant as the current Sonar issue I'm having. Do we have to keep the media volume (most likely the Sonar output) on full, or can it be one or two 'pips' down? At most, I've turned it down one 'pip', but this still shouldn't be the issue.

I look forward to hearing from you. 

PS. I have all permissions for SaA allowed, so sensors, speaker, microphone and the like are good to go.

Blur are back, and "The Magic Whip" does not disappoint.

So, FRP has locked me out.


As I type this, I'm using a slow Huawei Y6. It's an awful handset. It's not like my Nexus 6P.

On Sunday evening, I reset my phone via TWRP, rather than the system settings menu. On other versions of Android and other devices, this would just wipe my data. However, as I'm on Marshmallow, it considers the phone as lost. You are locked out for 72 hours, even if you have he right password.

It's frustrating that I've had to resort to a budget device to get me by, but there is simply not a way around beating FRP. That said, fair play to Google for making such a powerful security feature.

My service will resume from my 6P later this evening, and hopefully the message goes away and allows me to login, but until then I shall be using the cheap handset to get me by. But, genuinely, good on Google for making such a simple and effective security method. If I was a robber, I'd have given up on this phone.

On the other hand, be careful wiping your device. Remember to remove your account first!

+Kevin Carpenter​ - that's what I did. I was fecking around, forgot that I was on Marshmallow, and wiped via TWRP without thinking.

For years I've been searching high and low for this song. Tonight, by sheer fluke, I came across it as some wonderful person uploaded it to YouTube. I can't explain how great it is to hear a song that you couldn't find for such a long time. Especially since I never knew the name.

I first heard it on Phantom FM when they were doing their test broadcasts on 97.3 in Dublin. It was something so different to anything I had heard, and it is a song I always associate with the station even after it has, unfortunately, come to be no more.

I'm thrilled to have heard this again. This uploader has brought back some real memories! Thank you!

A unique standpoint on the death of Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church by Louis Theroux.
Louis Theroux: What motivated the man behind the placard-waving, virulently homophobic Westboro Baptist Church, AKA 'the most hated family in America'? And what next for the church and family following his death?

This was the original B&Q store in Ireland, and it's flagship is still miles ahead of the other DIY retailers. The store is large and spacious, the staff are generally quite helpful (with a few exceptions, notably the Trade Counter), and they've got regular offers. Be aware though, you're probably better going to a wholesaler for bits and pieces rather than spending lots of money on a handful of nails or a tub of paint.

This is a small, casual restaurant in Donnybrook Village, and has been located here for a number of years now, offering brunch, lunch, and dinner, in a stylish atmosphere. I have been on a number of occasions for their lunch offerings, and I have enjoyed their meals such as the Piri Piri Chicken Ciabatta, as well as their goats cheese salad, and their variety of daily soups. They also offer wholesome homemade burgers and tasty fish dishes. It's not your usual ham and cheese sandwich joint. The prices are higher than other places at lunch time (from €9 to €13 for most items), but you do get a quanity and quality that would be significant, and which would fill you for the day. Parking is limited, so it's best to park down the road (or in one of the side streets) and walk to the restaurant. Parking on the main road or dedicated inlet can be expensive: €2.40 per hour. Recommended.

Essentially, this is like any other Homebase store. It has the same layout, and mostly the same stock. They're a large kitchens and bathrooms area, as well as a fairly big garden centre stacked full of plants. If you're doing a big DIY project, you'll find prices more expensive than a wholesaler, but if you need some wallpaper, some hydrangeas, or some nails in a rush, this will do the job.

If you're looking for a place to watch the sport, then look no further than The Woolshed. This fun and lively bar in Dublin City centre has dozens of screens, three bars, a full food and drink offering, and lots of atmosphere. I've been here many times for variety of occasions- from rugby matches to Friday night 'Rock Star' bingo- and I can't praise the place enough. The drinks are reasonably priced, and food is filling and decent. They offer a plethora of sports on their televisions and projectors, and they always pull in a good crowd. The security is sharp and well run, and the staff are prompt. Overall, it's a great bar, and lots of fun. Tip: If you're going to watch a big match, such as a Rugby World Cup Final, or a national game, arrive early. This place does get very busy, seats will be gone, and there will be a queue managed outside until people leave. You've been warned!

Dublin Zoo is a great place, and its clear from the outright that the keepers and staff are out in the best interests of the animals. They've got a fantastic breeding record for endangered species and they've got a huge open area called the "African Plains" where giraffes, tigers, and zebras can roam freely. Prices are high enough (around €16 for an adult), but you can be sure this cost is helping the animals and contribute towards the expansion and enhancement of the enclosures. Better still, if you're going a few times during the year, a membership costs around €150 and will give you unlimited access to Dublin Zoo and Fota Wildlife Park, and you'll be helping the animals whilst benefitting from member only events.

This is a very nice luxury hotel, with good food and service, and with ample car parking. I can't speak for the quality of the bedrooms, but if they are of the same quality as the other areas in the hotel, you would be very impressed. The hotel, and it's amenities and hospitality, is much higher than other hotels, but it is what you'd expect from a five star hotel.
