Hi Gadgets & Technology!

Hi everyone!  Just wanted to introduce myself since Bump Kathleen asked me to be the mod for this board. 

I'm Rein, 27 living in the Midwest with Mr. Rein and our dog and cat.  We are TTC #1 - don't be fooled by my Bump ticker, it's just optimism/fun/laziness so I don't have to put one up in a few days (cross your fingers). :)

So, hi!  Looking forward to getting to know you all.

  • Nice to have a mod, since anything named "gadgets" is clearly bait for linkspam!

    Tell us a little about yourself!
    - OS?
    - hardware?
    - smartphone preference?
    - favorite social media platform?
    - text editor (if you play in those battles)?

  • Welcome! I am a mod for this board as well. It will be nice to have someone else looking out for spam.
  • Thanks, ladies!  I'm definitely passionate about my gadgets, that's for sure.  I'm an Apple gal.  I have a MacBook from a couple years back, and iPhone 3GS (waiting for October!), and an iPad 2 that saves me when I'm between buildings at work.

    Social - I like FB for connecting with close friends and pictures, and I like Twitter for random thoughts/my safe place.  Google+ has its positives, but it really hasn't taken off since there aren't many folks over there yet.

    Apps - I love HeyTell (walkie talkie/voice texting), GroceryIQ (sharing grocery lists with Mr. Rein and scanning things into the list), and Instagram (pic filters, don't know why I only got this in the spring - I love it!).

    Anything else, just ask :)

  • btw - As the G&T mod, can you petition to have the submission code updated to sanitize the post inputs? It seems like a better solution than having the mods do manually edits all the time (especially if someone starts fiddling around with code injection instead of just markup). Don't you agree?

    Yes, but you do realize you're asking to move a mountain on a forum where you can't "Reply" to a PM, you have to "Quick Reply," right? :)  It's been suggested, but unfortunately, it's hard to get much done in the IT department around these parts.  Trust me, I'd love to have either a code change or a 3-day waiting period like it used to be - both would cut down on the mod editing jobs!
