RE: Has anyony upgraded to Android 13 on cell phone?

@ wa8yxm, So you think it is a phone hardware issue? It was not happening before the Android 13 update a few weeks ago. I noticed this only after that upgrade. I got the phone at no cost to me by switching to T-mobile. I like the phone, it does everything I need... ...and this "notification" thingy does not inhibit anything, it's just annoying.

RE: Has anyony upgraded to Android 13 on cell phone?

Thanks for the responses... Essentially, Mortorola told me that they are aware of this idiosyncrasy. I quizzed them as to why I could not find another person who is experiencing the same thing. (hence, me asking to the many folks here.) They said that it will be more common as people get new phones with the updated OS. They said there is nothing I can do about this. My phone is about 6 months old (that is when I got it.) They said older phones when updating OS will not see this. I am no computer whiz but it sounded like bunkum to me. I hope I described properly what the situation is and they truly understood. I sort of agree it is an app notification setting, but what app is it? I have looked at what I think it could be. I stopped by two T-mobile stores and the reps in the store (at least 40 years younger than me-LOL) and they thought the same thing but could not identify the app with which it might be associated. Here is an image of what I am describing: https://i.imgur.com/gZTAx0Ol.jpg

Has anyony upgraded to Android 13 on cell phone?

Folks, My phone forced me to upgrade to android 13 about three weeks ago. I get an annoying message appearing when I close apps down telling me how many closed and how much memory has been freed up. I really do not need to know this and it is more annoying as this message box at the bottom of the screen appears for about 4-5 seconds. Not a deal breaker but annoying. T-mobile tells me to call motorola, Motorola tells me to call google. Anyone experience what I describe and anyone know a work- around?

RE: Evansville to Indianapolis airport (I-69) question

^^--Thank you, John, for the update. I am used to that route and will heed the advice. Perhaps next year it will all be complete (but wonder if it will be the preferred route to the airport once 465 is done.) I like allowing plenty of time (don't like to rush) and enjoy the 2-lane Indiana country roads. If I get stuck be behind a 'binder, then so be it... life goes by too quick without needing to add to the haste.

RE: Durango-Silverton RR...

I saw on the website the diesel alternative... not sure why that is in place. Thought it might be for when there is high fire danger perhaps. IIRC, there was a forest fire some years ago attributed to the coal locomotive.

RE: Durango-Silverton RR...

Congrats, Desert Captain, on the 53 years! I have done the Durango narrow gauge twice- once in 1975 as a ten year- old and again about a dozen years ago. My father built a Glen-L travel trailer back in NJ where I grew up. We trekked across the US a few times in it and one time bought us the the Durango area on an excursion down to the Grand Canyon that year. We stayed just to the north of town along side of the river at the local campground... I thought it was the neatest thing to see "our" camper from the train as we headed out. One thing that really sticks out to me was the coal dust in my hair at the end of the trip from the particles that fell from the stack waff as we traveled. It is a must- do bucket list item for any train enthusiast.

RE: Camper Tie-down Pros/Cons

~... Any suggestions or insight that I've overlooked at this point would be greatly appreciated. ...~ Take the tailgate off and leave it at home before you head out to pick up the camper.

RE: Evansville to Indianapolis airport (I-69) question

OP here... Any construction progress update? on edit: In looking at the "I-69 Finish Line" website, it appears that it is complete up to 144 at Waverly.

RE: BlueTooth ear buds and phone on airplane mode...?

BlueTooth ear buds and phone on airplane mode...?

So, I abandoned my trusty flip phone a little over a year ago and am exploring the features of this mini hand- held computer that also sometimes functions as a phone- it is a low priced, entry level Samsung model. I am a Luddite. I recently acquired a set of wireless BlueTooth ear buds. I have linked them to the phone. The music and movies sound OK and I like the wireless feature. The problem comes in the situation of wanting to use them on an airplane- when switching to "airplane mode" it disconnects the BlueTooth feature as well. Is there a way to go wireless when watching a movie on a plane?

RE: Crack in plastic shower wall Lance 1172

I had a crack in the base of my last camper and this is what I did: I drilled a hole at the end/ apex of the crack in hopes any forces would disperse around that hole and not continue further. I filled the crack/ drilled holes as best I could with flexible caulk and applied an appropriate size piece of trimmed- to- fit EternaBond over it.

RE: Broken Frame on a RAM 3500

I read the article as sent to me this morning from another news source. I have not been around for quite some time since selling the TC… but, I knew that this would be a topic here, hence me dropping back in to at least say hi. Good to see some of the regular good folks with sage comments still around here… Yes, we are all respectfully speculating on this mishap and the comments seem quite logical. I will add this: He could have been under the max payload number, but if that load (force)is hanging X distance behind the rear axle it could have resulted in a broken frame- nothing too complex to understand, it is the basic physics of levers. If placed far enough away then the uplift force (right at the front tie- downs) and the weight of the diesel up front will react at the weakest point. All of those forces working together will find that weakest point. ~…The camper dealer didn’t follow my instructions and used the drill-thru mount… ~3 tonsWOW! I would have been rip-feces PO'd in a big way if a dealer did that even within acceptable location range!:M ~…the clamp on unit negates any drilling or welding…~Yep, that is why I went with the bolt-in TL's on mine. Kind of a PIA to install within the HF frame. I have mine still in place... not sure if I can get inside to remove the hardware in order to take them off. Anyway- hope y'all had a Merry Christmas... and Happy New Year to everyone.

RE: Evansville to Indianapolis airport (I-69) question

OP here, thank for the latest update. I did the suggested route recently and it is a pretty direct way to go. I definitely notice the less construction from last year. I am used to that route doing now for a few years in a row and I gotta' ask the question: Is this still the preferred route to get to the airport even when I-69 get completed?
