  • Memorium page for my father in law.
  • Regular listener to NPR - A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor (says goodbye after 42 years), Car Talk with click and clack (nothing is forever), Wait Wait, - Don't Tell Me! with Peter Sagal, and From The Top with Christopher O’Riley.
  • Conditioning: If you have ever worked with NDI's tracking systems you have heard their characteristic beeps. In the beginning you, and the people around you, will likely be annoyed by the beeping caused when initializing the system as you debug your software. After a while though, just like Pavlov's dogs, you will associate the beeps with the tracker telling you "all is well". For those that have rooted their android phone you can switch the power on/off tones to the comforting "all is well" beeps:
    1. Download the PowerOn.ogg and PowerOff.ogg files and copy them to your phone.
    2. Using RootBrowser (found on Google Play) go to the /system/media/audio/ui folder and rename the PowerOff.ogg PowerOn.ogg files.
    3. Copy the new files into this location and make sure that the file permissions are the same (owner rw, group r, others r).
    Now when you turn your phone on/off you will get the positive feedback you crave.
