    I'm really shocked how many IT folks there are here....said me, never. :rolleyes:

    Why won't my iPhone 11 backup to the iCloud or my PC? You want to fix the world? Save my phone from me.

    I am going to nuke the category nobody is using and replace it with the trades (Electrician, carpenter, swordsmith, etc.). Stand by. I need a mod.

    [EDIT: Okay, Jamie made the changes. Try now.]

    I’m a former software engineer who manages engineers and product designers working on ways to help you pay for stuff. You probably have our app on your phone or an app that uses us.

    I used to work for the app on your phone that makes you super stressed about politics, but does let you talk directly to your guitar heroes.

    Who isn't? Seems like you can quit your job at breakfast and have a better paying job by lunch.

    My wife and daughter had that problem a few weeks ago. Neither of them ever delete photos from their phones or iPads; all of which are on the same iCloud account. As such, they had exceeded their Storage Plan. Once I bumped them up to the 50GB plan, the iCloud backups continued.

    Because its a PC? :)

    I'd offer to take it off your hands but bought myself a shiny-new iPhone 8 in Frankfurt last week. ;)

    That was a great ad. I often wonder why most of the best ads disappear after a short one and it seems the others that suck run every commercial break.

    Before Jack In The Box was national they had some amazing ads, like the one where the family is out in a remote area and his mother wants something, he defers, and she says "have I ever told you how difficult your birth was?". The next scene was his mother calling out to him "Do you have the keys?" as he's walking out to a helicopter.

    I’m a lawyer who on a very good day possesses below mediocre guitars skills. I felt compelled (per internet stereotypes) by profession/skill to buy PRS guitars. Now it seems I was misled into believing that I would be amongst a bunch of lawyers and dentists. On second thought perhaps this PRS thing worked out well for me on a social level?
