    QF, I qualified for one of those full-ride Rutgers state scholarships that NJ high school students took a test for (I forget what it was called). My father said I could have a Corvette if I took it (although he didn't really want me to). Instead I too went to an Ivy out of state. Princeton was too close by far.

    My parents have never let me forget that I could have gone to Rutgers Honors for 4 years on what it cost them for one semester at Brandeis. ;) They also like to remind me that I added my SAT scores together wrong (hey, at least the error was in my favor and added 100 points instead of subtracting, and to be fair, I was excited to get the results and wasn't thinking clearly)

    I did not want to go to Rutgers, and so when they asked me to apply to the Honors program and my parents insisted, I went way off the rails on the essay. They had given a topic (something about lessons learned in time or some other generic crap), and I swear to god, I submitted an essay on the nature of time travel and cited Back to the Future several times. The day I got my packet letting me know I had been accepted was my birthday, and I threw the packet to the side in order to open my birthday present from my cousins, because I knew they had gotten me the new Sleater-Kinney CD, and I was far more invested in listening to it than acknowledging that Rutgers existed.

    Anyhow, now that we've dragged this way off topic, I hope Hook's phone has escaped its escapades in the Garden State.

    I am so thrilled to have this phone. The aluminum/silver color is much better in person than it is in pics. It kills me that I got it in the middle of the week as I only had time to unpack it and log in. Of course, the minute I did (it was on Android 6.0.1) Android 7.1.1. downloaded and I installed it. Need to run over to AT&T tonight and get the right sized SIM. Most of the actuale set up of the phone will happen Friday night unless I get more time tonight than I expect.

    And I'm glad I got the 128 GB. I expect this phone, like my Nexus 5, to last me for a while (as long as I can keep it away from the dog. :D

    Hey, a Corvette was about 1 year's tuition, room, and board when I went to school, which would pretty much hold true today as well. Anyway, I wasn't a Corvette fan. Rutgers is a good school, it's just that it was WAY too close to my parents (whom I love). As it was, I had to come home more than I liked and my parents visited a few times.

    I'm glad Hook got his phone!

    The aluminum back looks even better in the dark RhinoShield bumper case. Not sure it will stop a dog, but I have accident protection this time. ;-) Got the sim today, but rooting, etc has to wait for the week-end.

    We can just call it silver, right? More pirate-y that way.

    Arrrgh, shiver me timbers. That there vessel carries aluminum foil aplenty. Plunder that booty, and there'll be wenches for all!

    Hookette agrees. It's silver. And it's not a bumper case,its a backless gown (so she can show off the "Nexus" tattoo down her spine). :vbwink:
