Has anyone had their cut-and-paste quit working on an Android phone? I Googled the problem, and it looks like I will have to do a factory reset on it unless someone here knows something else I can try.

That can be real finicky. Have you tried in multiple applications? At what point does a phone become a computer?

Smartphone are mini-computers.

According to Merriam-Webster:

an electronic machine that can store and work with large amounts of information

According to Wiktionary:

3. A programmable electronic device that performs mathematical calculations and logical operations, especially one that can process, store and retrieve large amounts of data very quickly; now especially, a small one for personal or home use employed for manipulating text or graphics, accessing the Internet, or playing games or media.

Technically, smartphones fall under both definitions of "computer." 

 

As for Ahhh Girl's query, I'm sorry, but I can't help there. I've never heard of that happening.

Not quite. I'd be popping a pill to help me relax before i went anywhere near the plane. 

One of my justifications for business class is if I do fly and for whatever reason the plane was to fall/plummet/sprinkle back down to earth i might as well be comfortable with plenty of leg space instead of being squished. If you're going to crash into a mountain do it in luxury.

Plus you might want to haggle and if i started with First Class its a rotten level down to the next.

I did it. Factory reset. Copy and paste works again. My eyes are crossing because it is so late, but I am a happy camper!

Did you do a back-up before you reset the phone or did you lose everything?

True. I could show you all around the great state of Oklahoma. You'd have to bring Irn Bru with you. Can't buy it anywhere around here. Not even here: http://www.pops66.com/40.0.html But maybe you could find a flavor you like.

Can I come over and mind the cat? Flights to Glasgow are only €20 return these days, so if you pay me €60 and give me unlimited fridge access then it'll be happy days for ASJ.

Why am I paying you €60 when it costs you €40 in flights? Whats the remaining for? I want detailed costs in advance and receipts after the fact.

You'll have to stock the fridge yourself but you can have unlimited access. You can live in it if you want.

Just waiting on AG to tell me the dates.

 

Update: Its only €20 for the flight. I'm getting ripped off here. I can do maths you know.
