[16:16:23] <cmn32480> nick !!
[16:18:23] <nick> cmn32480 !!
[16:18:32] <nick> how goes?
[16:18:36] <cmn32480> hows life treating you this fine Saturday
[16:18:49] <cmn32480> not too shabby....
[16:18:58] <cmn32480> oooo coffee pot beeped... back in a sec
[16:19:13] <nick> had a morning wasted, went down to an emergency service call for a client some miles away
[16:19:32] <nick> the clients assistant had turned off the power, at the socket to the system.
[16:20:12] <cmn32480> i hope it was billable
[16:20:20] <nick> earlier in the week, catastrophic failure of laptop which meant i was doing everything via phone and tablet this week
[16:20:38] <cmn32480> that sucks
[16:20:40] <nick> and the reason i didnt make it on to do any editing, without a physical keyboard its just too painful for me
[16:20:41] <cmn32480> I've been there
[16:20:51] <cmn32480> agreed.
[16:21:04] <cmn32480> no worries. we've kept the lights on for you
[16:21:08] <nick> i had to buy a tablet just to get me through the week, and im now avoiding laptops
[16:21:16] <takyon> I have a real dumb question
[16:21:39] <takyon> is it possible to get a bluetooth mouse + cursor to work with android smartphones?
[16:21:40] <cmn32480> ask away. let us judge if it is dumb
[16:21:41] <nick> and i wont buy a lenovo ever again, the laptop that died is barely 2 years old, if that
[16:21:49] <nick> takyon, thats something i'm wondering myself...
[16:21:56] <nick> as i now have a tablet and a keyboard for it, but no mouse...
[16:22:27] <takyon> I always use a mouse with laptops, I'm thinking why not extend that to the phone
[16:22:28] <nick> the keyboard connects via usb, so i'm assuming i should be able to get some kind of bluetooth cursor for it
[16:22:36] <cmn32480> i believe you can.
[16:22:43] <cmn32480> as long as there are drivers for the mouse
[16:22:56] <cmn32480> try pluggingin in a USB mouse and see if that gives a result
[16:23:32] <nick> logitech seems to claim to do a mouse for android 3.1+ tablets
[16:23:43] <nick> is bluetooth and should work on a phone i'd think
[16:23:56] <takyon> could be hindered by custom android (samsung)
[16:24:25] <cmn32480> google says you can
[16:24:35] <cmn32480> https://www.google.com
[16:24:37] <exec> └─ 13Google
[16:25:23] <nick> seems like any bluetooth mouse should work
[16:26:05] <cmn32480> looks that wya
[16:26:30] <cmn32480> now if I could only get Office 2007 to update on Wondiws 7 today woudl be pretty complete
[16:27:08] <nick> ah, office 2007, the last tolerable office.
[16:28:38] <takyon> well youtube has a video of someone using an apple mouse connected a USB-to-microUSB connected to a Samsung Galaxy S3. so I'm convinced
[16:28:55] <takyon> time to check bluetooth mouse prices
[16:29:06] <nick> plenty of generic bluetooth mice on ebay claiming to do the trick for <$10
[16:29:27] <nick> if i'd have thought about it, should have bought when i got the case+keyboard
