Re: Samsung S3 mini running 5.1.1 here

I'm running Cyanogen on a Samsung S2. Perfectly fine.

Everything Google has been removed (thanks Link2SD) and any apps are downloaded from the Playstore onto my computer (there is a way if you search) and side loaded to the phone.

Might need a new battery soon but they're peanuts.

Old but not obsolete. (No Arni icon unfortunately)

That explains why Sheppie, my border collie, started barking and pawing at the computer as soon as I installed Windows 10, he just knew something was terribly wrong."

Record-breaking $502m in sales, BIG LOSSES – OF COURSE IT'S TWITTER

Coat

Who else, who else could turn half a billion dollars into nothing

Facebook

"But investors seemed pleased with the results, and Twitter's share price climbed by more than 5 per cent on the news and continued upward in after-hours trading."

This has nothing to do with the viability of Twitter but has everything to do with the money grabbing "markets" that we are all told to embrace.

Officer "Why?"

Edit

It would have read better if :

"It is not clear whether the Arabic-language post was made by individuals within ISIS, their warped supporters, or a lone nutcase."

Had been replaced by:

"It is not clear whether the Arabic-language post was made by individuals within ISIS, their warped supporters, or some other nutcase."

Muffins

Easier to buy the muffins and warm them under the grill after cutting them in half.

Adds a bit of crispness too.

I'll bet most people end up with spicy scrambled eggs when they try to make the sauce.or it splits.

If it does, add a few drops of water and whisk.

Looks wonderful but I've got to make do with roast chicken today.
