I have to go with the SEC team - state law. The mushroom risotto sounds good. Make sure you save some for Paul and I. We'll get you a food order a little bit get closer to time. As for recycling beer cans, what do you think I am using for my spending money? I plan to mooch off of you for the basic stuff - food, electricity, cable, Internet, DVC dues - but I'll need some spending money for things like buying you a Christmas present. Those recycled cans should cover that bill.

So, my iPad refurbed Gen 1 is now more efficient than my home PC. It is a Dell desktop that I bought new in 2006. It has just slightly less than 1 GB worth of free space, but moves so slowly and freezes up at times. I really like my iPad but I also like my Windows Samsung Focus and still can't decide which route to go. I should probably post this over on the DisDad Geek thread for some help since we've done the budget for next year and there isn't room for a new computer.

As my PC has gotten slower, the only thing I am using it now for is to update my iPad and backup photos. How do I send everything to the cloud and how do you update iPad without a computer?

Seriously considering. Although we have a Mac not a PC.

I would rather ND play Florida or Georgia in the National Hampionshop. I think Alabama should have been penalized harder for losing at home to A&M.

If Windows 8 Works like my phone does, it may have taken the best of PC and tablet and combined them. The only knock on the Windows phone compared to the iPhone is the number of Apps available, which means that I have to use the regular site, which runs into problems when the site requires Flash Player. I was able to download that Photo Flash Player for iPad. I wonder if Windows 8 figured that out.

I have a coworker who is not a Apple fan and purchased the surface. He is not happy with it at all. He said Windows 8 is still buggy. I didn't realize he Surface was available yet

Afternoon Gents!

Hope you all have had a great weekend. its been a busy and tiring one here.

We had our annual sport summit and sport awards over the last two days. Throw in a board meeting Friday night and our AGM in between summit sessions on Saturday, it has been long. Yesterday first session started at 7:45 and I made it back to the hotel room last night around 1 am.

Right now I feel a nap coming on.

Haven't read a lot of good reviews either. There is also the Dell competitor. Either way, I don't want to buy anything.

Good luck and stay safe! Remember to stay tied to the tree if you are up in the air.

I just got my first deer yesterday for freezer meat. Now I'm hunting horns for a few days after Thanksgiving with my FIL, both BILs, and 14 of our closest friends. Deer camp here I come!

Me either. I am putting all extra spending on lock down. I want to cancel cable, but DW is finding it hard to imagine life without certain shows? That would save $600 over a 10 month period! My estimate for the adoption is between $30-35k so every little bit helps.
