    I'd personally root the phone and flash a custom ROM.

    Anyway, looking for a decent USB sound card for the laptop. Suggestions?

    I might be acquiring a new motherboard and processor for my file server, but the motherboard only has two onboard SATA ports. Should I acquire this new board, I'll be investing in a couple of 4TB hard drives.

    Some food that isn't cookies or pie. Pretty much all I ate this weekend.

    Physical maps of road networks for SC and NC. Don’t have one for NC yet and my SC one is rather old.

    I was trying to think of the last time I used a physical map. I used to be the designated navigator on family road trips as a kid and used them then, but other than that, not much.

    I never really use them either, but I like being prepared (in case something happens to my phone, for example). Usually I carry road maps, a blanket, a towel(s), roadside and first aid kits in my trunk at all times. And sometimes, I carry even more stuff in certain situations (extra water if I’m going to a dry/hot place, for example).

    I've considered making a rolling tank map for long rides, but I realized most of the places I go I'm at least familiar enough to navigate with signs alone.

    Hmm, well my issue is that a lot of the travel I do is long-distance driving through middle-of-nowhere type of situations, and usually it’s just to/from a small selection of major towns/cities (which I’m mostly familiar with, though I’m still learning my current home).

    Usually not a problem when sticking to the Interstates, though I’ve done a fair bit of traveling where the destination is nowhere near an Interstate (the Appalachian Mountains and some rural SC towns, for example).

    It's probably something I should do anyway, if I need GPS I run it under my helmet to headphones and just listen to the directions, but something to look down at might be nice even so.
