Alright, they are obviously not really sisters, but they are humorous.

When do I get my box from Niantic Labs?

We took VT Rte 15 from Jefferson to Burlington to do some bike riding. The GPS suggested a different route at first that it said involved dirt roads, but we had and followed directions that kept us on paved roads. On the way back the GPS again said that dirt roads were necessary, we ignored it, intending to follow the directions that we had. We got off of I89 at VT15, which was an exit before the GPS route, and it calculated a new route. Though we tried to follow VT15, we missed a turn somewhere when the GPS directed us a different way. We found ourselves in an area that didn't have the shopping centers that we had seen on the way out, but the view was nice. Since we were time limited and the computed route showed that we would get back in time with only minutes to spare we didn't try turning around. We knew we were going the right way due to the location of the mountains and the compass indicator. After a couple of turns we found ourselves on the promised dirt road. Then it got more interesting as the road got steep and then narrowed to one lane. Eventually the road returned to two lanes and we got back to pavement. After a steep down hill and a sharp turn we were on VT108, which is where we wanted to be.

I guess it's time to either buy a new GPS or new maps for the current GPS.

I'm Giving Away a PAIR of Transporters!
If you haven't already seen the Transporter (http://geekbeat.tv/transporter), it's a unique new drive technology that lets you replicate all of your files (or just the ones you want) to other physical locations.  So you put Transporter "A" at home, and Transporter "B" at work.  They stay synced up through the InterTubez automagically!

Well, our friends over at the Transporter project gave me a PAIR to give away to one of YOU! :-)  Here's how you win:

1) Do you have me in a Circle? Yeah! Step 1 complete.
2) Circle +FileTransporter! 
3) Publicly share this post.

You're done!!!

What, you want more chances to win? :-)  Ok, leave a comment below telling me what you'll do with a couple of these for another chance.  I plan to share my movies and stuff with family.  How about you?

WHAT? You still want MORE chances to win? :-P  Ok, well, +Cali Lewis *is giving away another pair* right here:
https://plus.google.com/103493459351957813291/posts/NP1ZtpX1PYT

Of course, the best thing you can do is head over to the Transporter Kickstarter page and back the project! http://geekbeat.tv/transporter  I've already done it, and so have 342 other people!  They're 2/3rds of the way done!!!

PS - The giveaway is limited to the US.  Hopefully they'll have a successful Kickstarter launch and go International after that! :-D

PSS - You'll get yours after the development is complete.  So it'll take a couple months, but you'll be among the first to get one!!!

I'm on a Google+  hangout and the sound is coming out of the wrong set of speakers.  The sound is coming from the laptop speakers, but other sounds are coming from speakers connected to external USB sound unit. I can't figure out where to change it!

It is a single computer (laptop) - when I use it at the desk at home I use an USB video/sound adapter that reduces the number of wires that I need to plug in. And I try to use a single browser (Chrome).

Rode 31 miles on the tandem (bicycle) with my 9.5 year old son on the back.  He enjoyed the first 25, and his legs were spent after that. I asked to head home earlier than that because it was getting close to the time that we should be starting to cook dinner.

I recently received email that was intended for a Richard Whalen in TX. The email address was very similar to mine. The email was "dig safe" related, and there was a phone number for the correct Richard Whalen, so I called him and got the correct email address and forward the messages to him. One day later I'm still getting messages, so I don't know how many I'll get. Maybe I'll write a mail handling rule to forward them to him automatically.

My husband had to change his gmail address because he was constantly getting another Daniel Frederick's email. It wasn't even that someone was incorrectly addressing the emails, they just were going to his address which was so close to the other. Very frustrating and weird.

(And some of the emails were quite personal, too. Email definitely isn't as secure as we think!)
