You need to take up waterskiing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding and tubing. I am sure you have no shortage of water... Just have them bring a ski boat and some davits next time they provision out the rig... Part of the "compensation" package.

future reference for all the technologically challenged like me, if your frigging iPad locks up five minutes into a ten hour flight.... As mine did, just push and hold the app button and the sleep button for about ten seconds... I didn't know that until ten minutes ago when I get to the hotel and my room mate tells me, oh, just do this... ..

So, on a ten hour flight, no reading, no movies, and no sleep.... I frigg'in hate travel..

I got rid of my Latest and Greatest Droid X phone due to not being able to make or recieve phone calls down here...

Talked to Verizon Tech Support, and lots of others, and all recommend the Newer Later Greater Droid PRO... "It's the International Phone"

So, I'm due for a new every two phone, so... "hook me up."

they did... all the bells and whistles...

Guess What... It doesn't frigg'in work...

I've tried to hook up Automatically, CDMA, GMS, UMTS etc....

Nothing works, except for the guys with me that all have T-Mobile and AT&T Phones, cheap ones and iphone 4's etc... They all have great signals, text, talk, etc... Guess where I'm going when I get home... I'm taking this POS back to Verizon, getting out of the contract, somehow... and going to AT&T... I left them nine years ago... but I guess I'm headed back....

Should be able to talk your way out of it if you were told you could use it internationally and you can't. Looks like you need to cross to the iPhone side...trust me, you'll never look back!!

What do you do, sit on it to see out... lol, j/k,

I seriously considered it a few weeks ago when I got this phone, but since my wife is on the school plan and we get to use the family discount, I stayed with Verizon... oh well, lesson learned... We'll see how it works out...

Robert - I feel your pain, I have AT&T and can report that it is great as long as you are not in the states trying to get service. It should work fine for you in Brazil but you may want to find something else when you get home.

Would Cricket work out of the country? It should. And you could keep your Verizon plan for a while. But a cheapy phone...add minutes to it which you only use in Brazil, use the Verizon plan back here in SA.

We have a senior mechanical supervisor on-board helping rebuild one of our EMD's... engines... and he and I were talking about my Camaro... imagine that...

He asked... "Is it a hybrid...???"

My response... "yup... it'll smoke your Vette and still get over 20 miles per gallon..."

He got and walked out...

Oh everything is fine, came through the storms well. Others were not so lucky. Alot of damaged areas, been trying to help out where I can but after having elbow surgery my helping out has been limited. Just really sad to see and makes you Thankful for what you have. The really sad part is Children's Hospital and the children there who have lost parents. It will break your heart.

Little League has dominated my time lately but it is almost over, been keepin track though just not posting too much.

Dr Jkel is fine and I should pick it up this week after the latest cosmetic mods, Spoiler, LED's, engine stuff etc.....

Be safe.

First, a little background...

We work in a salty air, and salt water environment... Salt gets into everything.... and corrodes EVERYTHING... Tools, equipment, the rig itself...

I had the barge captain come to me this morning with a air operated five foot long ratchet type tool, that wasn't working...

It looks like it's 30 years old, and they just got it about two years ago... It's been used once, and then was stored in the lower hull, in... you guessed it.... a salt laden atmosphere... It doesn't work...

Instead of storing it in the container it came in in one of the atmospherically controlled areas, it was leaned up against a bulkhead... where it has been knocked over, run into, dropped, and left for junk... until now when they actually need it... yesterday...

So, with no drawings or instructions of any type or a parts list, I am rebuilding the silly thing... the 9,000 dollar thing...

It amazes me when I see stuff like this... especially from people that are anal about their stuff when they are not on the rig.... Their attitude is well if it doesn't work, we'll order another one...

And that usually works, but damn, they are cutting into my profit sharing...

The part that kills me is they can't fix it themselves, yet they refuse to take care of it... dohhhhhh........
