I'm now at a week, though, and Hilton says it will take the full 30 days.

It amazes me, though, because normal earning doesn't take that long.

It looks like if you change "edit" to "www" in the urls, it stops looking for what I suspect is an internal-only server and instead gives the desired result.

Immediately set it on the ground and react as you should when a rational human is informed they were just holding a bomb. I suggest screaming "oh my, the water is dangerous!!!" and running away.

MCO to EWR, 8/25

Had 2E, 2F. Randomly moved my wife to 5F.

I ask because it appears possible to print an AR-15 (http://boingboing.net/2012/07/28/report-of-working-3d-printed-g.html) or other firearm.

While it is probably still possible to sneak a firearm...

I wish Dropbox and Downcast would sort that out, then. It's my understanding that 10 minutes after screen lock, a backgrounded task will be killed.
