I know this is almost a year old post, but I read our responses about the GnR reunion possibility and it's happening. Pipe dreams do come true sometimes.

Sometimes the need for rest at the very end of the day wins. Plus I look silly walking around the downstairs to get those last many steps.

I just got the DVD release of this movie from my library (discovering the reserve list is nice)

They weren't out very long and I don't think they made a lot of this particular DVD set/movies.

Alas, CloudMagic is email only and no support for calendar or contacts. It does support Outlook and iCloud email accounts at least. http://help.cloudmagic.com/article/supported-services/

As with Marie above, I'm no fan of Outlook for Windows. It's an unstable app that should be more stable for as many people that use it. For the iOS app, I still use mine for my work Outlook 365 account and a work-related Gmail account (I use for server alerts). For personal use of the app, I was using it for my Gmail cause I liked the swipe options. But it didn't support Gmail labels all that well. I've since started using an iOS app called CloudMagic. It's really good, fast and has a similar swipe function to Outlook. and it's free, so it's worth trying.

All 3 - Episode IV, V and VI were part of the September 2006 DVD releases that contained the unaltered original Star Wars movies. I only linked to EP IV above.

There was one DVD release in September 2006 of the original movies that included the original unaltered versions of the movies. This was the only time this happened on DVD. I don't own this set, but you can still find them places like Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Episode-IV-Limited/dp/B000FQJAIW I would really like to see another release of the originals on Blu-ray. Maybe even a clean up of them for us die hard and long time fans.

I would love the originals on Blu-Ray. I know a former boss/co-worker who has the originals ripped to digital, but I think he did that from the DVDs, which were just a transfer from the LD.

You are one of the few people I've heard talk about the original Star Wars films (released) on DVD. They did make a set, but I never got them as they became really hard to find if you didn't get that set. I ended up with the DVD set that didn't have the original films. I did own the set on VHS and Laserdisc at one point in my life. This Kara video.... pretty damn cool.

Oh wow.... last week's was a real stumper. Turns out I should have known what that was (still have at least one 30-pin Apple device here) This weeks... Going with a table leg from a nightstand.

You know I like Play-Doh..... as the character from my Snowy Sunday videos (what are those again???) had the Kapgar-inspired Clay. I like that marketing campaign. Clever, indeed on a non-technical level.

I'm guessing that I am one of the 4 (even though it's been a good many months since the last time I posted something on Vine). As for Instagram videos, I'm not sure I've even posted any. I would hate to see Vine go away, but like all apps these days, things change and it's not always for the best.

I'm getting ready to try this on my daughter's bathroom wall after she got hair color on it. Hoping it will come out and not need to be painted.

I would start with the 3 months of Apple Music.

I know the game is not on until 5:30pm, but mini Denver Omelettes could work. North Carolina..... That's a tough one. I guess any southern food would work. Fried Okra. Hush puppies.

Congrats on the unlimited data. I'm assuming you still have an iPhone and the image you posted is for the humor. I had unlimited data when I was with Sprint for almost 12 years. It got so bad the last 3 years, I couldn't wait to move over to AT&T. I have the 30gb plan with Rollover now and use a good 20gb of that each month (I tether to my laptop a lot when I'm on the go).

I should have went with the popular choice of X-Acto knife. The macro shot is tricky to these eyes of mine. As for this week, I'm guessing it's the long frame of a bed and the part that locks into the headboard.

First off, congrats on the unlimited data plan. Spotify would be my first choice to try out, and since it's free, it's one that you can get used to the streaming world. I did the $10 a month for a couple of months, but didn't use it enough to justify that cost. But... you should take advantage of the 3 free months of Apple Music, making sure to tell it in iTunes subscription settings to not auto renew. It's worth it. Just don't enable the option to store music locally. Otherwise, it will be a bit of a pain to have those DRM'd music files on your iDevice.

Nothing like knowing and discovering music from a grad school professor. That's awesome. And I like the music. Very cool to listen to these tracks.
