    Well, I usually don't remember to charge the dumb phone so that's one off the carry list. I don't own any Apple products so that's not a worry. I explained the part where I don't need a GPS in my own area ( I understand the direction/grid/number thing).

    I live a much simpler life than most people. I get face-to-face with my friends a lot. I socialize a lot. I do things with people (went dove hunting this holiday weekend) and will go to Bible class tomorrow, have lunch with a two people (separate lunches) this week, go to a festival with another, and attend an ethnic fair with a few more this weekend. I get a lot of face time for an introvert.

    I keep in touch by actually being there. So last century.

    Oddly enough I got a virus on my phone from this website. No other sites are affected, but if I try to log onto this one I get a redirect to the google play store. So, Adam, that may be part of your problem as well. It's why I'm using tapa talk again...it was the only way to get onto this site from my phone.

    Ah shit.

    Did anyone ever tell me this before? I don't want this site going about infecting phones all over the place.
    Leftists have unquestionably demonstrated their hatred for due process, and Democrats have undeniably obstructed justice for, and thoroughly victim-shamed and smeared, Karen Monahan.

    It never happened before and I've accessed the site tons of times. I didn't know if it was the site or my phone but figured I'd mention it since you have a problem that sounded like my problem.

    It''s not a virus, it's a function of vBulletin in some browsers. Do you use Google Chrome on your phone? Try it and tell us if the redirect is still there.

    I just checked, I don't get a redirect with Opera. First screen:



    Second screen:



    Both are easy to dismiss.

    Adam, can tell me a site you're going to that won't let you get out from under an ad for an app? I want to see what you're talking about.

    You can't spell "hatred" without "red hat".

    You have one now:

    https://www.liftmaster.com/For-Homes/MyQ-Connected-Home

    Get a Liftmaster. Get their app. And you'll never have to wash your hands every 30 seconds while chewing on your hair wondering if your garage door is down.

    Hair chewing is a completely different problem.

    I figure I can save myself the however many hundreds of dollars per year by simply reversing the car and looking.
