    So far so good. Been running nightly for a bit. The kernel I like plays well with it. Which S3 are you using and what setup?

    Just be glad you are not having to watch the Teletubbies!!!!!

    If you want a good laugh look out for Count Duckula, or the Black Adder series. Typical British humor

    Did you succeed, Cooley? or are you smoking still?

    I started smoking when I was 12 and continued till I was 31. This last January I was in the hospital for another back surgery (second one since 2010) The roommate I had was dying of lung cancer and listening to him breath out his last few days was a rude awakening for me. He knew that I smoked since the nurses would come in and slap another patch on me every 24 hours. Through teary eyes this man would tell me all those things that I had heard before about smoking and the harm it could do, but I never listened before, but this time It was different... Here was this man that was dying alone and had nobody but me to see him through his last days. Through teary eyes he begged me to stop, for the sake of my child, warned me that sometime down the line I would certainly be in this position again, but in his shoes. No family, no friends, no one, but the last ounce of his strength was used warning me about the change I had to make.

    After I got out of the hospital, first thing I did was buy a couple pack of Marlboros... It was strange. Every time I lit one I thought about this man, and his eyes, the sound in his chest, his words, his fear. I couldn't do it anymore. I was done.

    It's funny how things turn out sometimes, ya know. This man would have prolly told his story to anyone that was put in that room with him, but it was me. I was meant to see this. I was meant to hear him out. All that ugly was meant for me.

    Good luck, if you're still struggling. It's hard. I know. I tried dozens of times and berated anyone that tried to talk me into quitting. You will eventually get there.
