Overheard in Beaverton: Get your gun to go into Portland.
I overheard a conversation in Beaverton today where someone was having to pick up a package at the FedEx depot in Portland, "somewhere by the Convention Center" (actually on Swan Island). They were (seriously) complaining that they had to go back home to get their gun in order to drive into Portland.
In iOS 4 and 4.0.1, if you perform a "reset all settings" on your phone it can sometimes cause you to lose all your options in the "passcode lock" section of the phone settings, only leaving you with the "immediately" option.
This can be annoying as you will then have to enter your passcode immediately when your phone locks for any reason. I usually like mine set to a 15 minute delay so that I can use my phone frequently without typing in the passcode, but it still locks after a while.
This is a known bug, and should be fixed soon in an upcoming iOS version. Until then there are two workarounds.
We had been looking at RVs for a long time, focusing mostly on class B versions. Class B RVs are on van chassis and stay within the van footprint, as a result the Class B RVs are very manageable compared to their larger siblings. Most Class B can be driven in cities, parked in normal spots, and genarraly fit into tighter situations than you would ever consider for a much larger Class A or Class C (when most people think of RVs they are usually envisioning Class A or C).
We decided on a 2017 Winnebago Travato. We chose the 59g floorplan and waited for the 2017 1/2 models to come out with their few nice mid-year improvements.
Out in east Memphis and northwest Germantown they have some greenway bike+ped paths along the Wolf River, called the Wolf River Greenway. It is pretty nice, and I have ridden my bicycle along it's entirety. It is still somewhat in two main sections, the Memphis section in the west and the Germantown section in the east. The ultimate plans are to have them all linked together and connected to some other areas as well, although those plans seem like they might be a while to completion (if ever).
