    iPhone X X preorder thread

    Snowtrooper1966 Jr's 9th Birthday Siri Greeting

    Today Snowtrooper1966 Jr turns 9 years old! Thought it would be awesome to have Siri announce his gift, since he does not actually GET the 5S until Friday after we get our 6+'s. Had to DL the Siri "Samantha" voice into our MacMini text to speech system preferences. Then, using terminal...

    Snowtrooper1966's New Recruit

    Gonna have the entire set! @MrsSnowtrooper1966 went through intense sonogram and fetal nucleoli translucency testing yesterday, to see if we should expect any of the same complications we experienced with Tiberius. Initial findings: super green! And confirmation that it's a boy. Good thing...
