    Thats funny....I used MCI back in the day, Verizon resold their network through them, so I got Verizon service with MCI rates which saved me some money. I also had the Palm Treo on the far right, and that Motorola on the bottom, which I am thinking I got before the Startac. Man, it's been a long time
    The Moto on the bottom is a Piper, successor to the Flip. I got that after the "Brick." Its most definitely Pre StarTac.

    Hell, now that I think about it I guess after my Moto/Nokia/Treo runs I'm a serial Fanboy! <hanging head in shame>

    Good news for HTC for the next few years I guess.

    Oh god the Startac I remember when that was THE phone to have, little dinky pull out antenna that nobody ever pulled out. Wonderful phone served me well for several years. I probably replaced the battery three times on it lol. Man that's been a long time ago!

    Funny thing is that w/ Both StarTac's, the black and the silver Timeport StarTac, I still have the original OEM holsters and I used them both daily for years. They never broke. When I think about what I've spent on my DInc in accessories, I get misty again... for the wrong reasons.

    Let's take a trip further down memory lane....did you guys use pagers before cell phones? I remember starting with a simple beeper, then one that sent full messages...you called a number and got an operator who typed the message and sent it. Then there was the one that you could send standard responses back to another pager followed by the huge pagers with keyboards....heh heh heh then came the blackberry 850. That's when the cell phone plans became affordable. Am I dating us? Lol

    I remember those days -- driving down the street, get beeped, had to pull over to use a pay phone (since cell phone plans weren't quite yet priced out for the mass market)! LOL

    I remember those pagers - especially the "alpha numeric" pagers you describe. I was in my early college days back then & was one of those emergency exchange operators that paged on-call doctors. We loved it cuz we no longer had to talk to those ego maniacs in order to deliver an emergency message.

    I'm so glad that beepers became obsolete.

    Funny thing is, you could still get one if you wanted one

    The leading business, government and healthcare provider of paging products & wireless services.

    Look in their products, you will see some products to use from the 90's that are still for sale with service.

    lol. Yea, I figured they'd still be sold somewhere. I couldn't imagine using one, though. Modern phones can do all that & so much more.

    It's a little river (don't know the name) off of Steel Bridge Rd in Elizabethton, TN. There are some nice cabins there that we stayed at. Don't know if I can provide the name of the cabins here on the board but you'll be able to find them on google.

    CLOSE! Ribeye w/ caramelized mushroom and onions and Maries Chunky Blue Cheese. I was out of gorgonzola or straight blue cheese sometimes you have to improvise.

    I remember I worked for Pagenet when they started getting released, we were selling them as simple 2 way pagers. The big selling point? PIN Messaging.... Then I remember selling them when I was selling Network Managements Services, the pitch was that it was an excellent extension of of your Outlook.

    My favorite though was the AOL Messenger Device, just a Blackberry 850 with AOL IM only, no email, and no paging....I think that lasted 3 months?

    Man you guys are REALLY making me think of my childhood. Between the Old Radio Shack Tandy with Basic Programming manual, Where did the Big Floppies go?

    And New Paltz, I used to visit my grandfather up there when I was a kid. He used to take me to a public swimming lake that had a big floating diving board.

    Ahhh memory lane

    Just downloaded this app today. You can do any photo. I've been playing with photos I didn't even take with vignette. This app is amazing.

    That feature was added in an update a few weeks back as far as I can remember - its great to be able to do that now - plus it works in portrait now too! The menu system is easier to use, you can set favorite combination effects as well....

    maybe I should do a write-up of Vignette and post it in the application forum....
