Ok, I'm letting this go offline, as it were...

by Vulpinemac In reply to Old?

... because it's just the two of us talking here.

Personally, I'm glad that your original Droid is working well, that might be one reason why Google decided to purchase Motorola Mobility. However, very, very few cell phone users keep their existing hardware past their contract period simply because of the obsoleteness and the fact that by that age, most portable devices are looking pretty ratty, too. You and I are not <i>average consumers</i> and I have been trying to use the viewpoint of those consumers. Why, because it's those consumers who are my clients.

So, I find him reasonable, even when we disagree

by YetAnotherBob In reply to Who goes there?

Please give him the respect he deserves. Politeness costs you nothing, and gives you the opportunity to maybe even learn something.

Our differences are often the source of our inspirations. I am willing to live with these differences, and hope that we both have inspirations.

There's polite

You are master of neither.

And Yet

by YetAnotherBob In reply to There's polite

And yet, I learn

which is itself a victory.

Life is not always winning or losing. Sometimes both sides win, sometimes, it even happens that losing is better that winning.

As for master, I hope I never am, as that would mean I have stopped growing.

Read Plato's account of Socrates dialogues sometime. (Though I find Solomon s Ecclesiastes better.)

A Master ceases growth only at death. If then.

I was going to leave you unscathed

by santeewelding In reply to And Yet

Thinking that, flayed, you wouldn't have the presence to know it.

My time learning alphabets of wisdom -- your Platonic, Socratic, Ecclesiastic; and more -- ended long ago.

Recommend what you fawn over to someone else.

While I occupy myself with mastery to your learning.
