The BlackStreetBoyz have a great act (Alfred and Seymour)

I had the pleasure of seeing a comedy duo on board the Disney Magic in July (they are also on the Wonder and sometimes on NCL (Norwegian Cruise Line), The BlackStreetBoyz – Alfred and Seymour.  On any of these ships, if they are on board, make sure you go to their shows.  If you are looking for some funny comedy with a good message, these two guys are right on target.  Positive, high-energy, and funny too!  So if you are on the You can see a sample of their show below and check out the BlackStreetBoyz website.

They ended their shows with this message:

We love what we do. … The real reason people don’t have what they want in life is because of what you don’t know. See because when you don’t know nothing you don’t get nothing, that’s the bottom line.

So the next time you get ready to blame race, creed, gender or someone else for what you don’t have, what you do is take a couple of steps back and walk to a library which is free and check out as many books as you can on what it is you’re trying to [learn].

Read, read, read, r-e-e-e-d.

You are all on this planet for one reason.  You know what that reason is?  How many people have you helped along the journey before it is time for you to leave this planet, what we call Earth. Because when you’ve understood there’s one race, it’s called the human race, trust me, your life will be just as cool as ours.

The BlackStreetBoyz, July 12 and July 22, 2009

A clip from one of their shows (not these in July 2009), but very similar to what we saw:

iPhone 3.0 T-Mobile internet settings and T-Mobile mms settings

As with iPhone 2.x settings, the T-Mobile internet settings are in General -> Network -> Cellular Data Network.  For Cellular Data:

APN: wap.voicestream.com

Username or Password are blank.

If wap.voicestream.com does not work, you can try internet2.voicestream.com

The following settings seem to work for MMS messages with T-Mobile USA (I’ve been testing them for more than a week) and they are listed below the Cellular Data settings under MMS:

MMSC: 216.155.174.84/servlets/mms
Proxy: 216.155.165.50:8080
MMS-APN: wap.voicestream.com
User: empty
Pass: empty

You may have to restart the phone for the MMS settings to take effect.  You will see a little camera icon below the text field in the “Messages” application.

Have any more tips?

Next up, tethering your computer via your iPhone on T-Mobile.  😉

It looks like you can do it with the instructions here for not just T-Mobile USA, but other carriers:

The World’s Smallest Frog

A U.S. penny is 19 mm across. Various websites claim the Southern Hemisphere’s smallest frog is about 9.8 millimeters, Brazilian Gold Frog (Brachycephalus didactylus). This frog beats the Brazilian Gold Frog by about 5 mm – this frog is only approximately 5 mm.   The (previously????) smallest frogs of the Northern Hemisphere is the Cuban Eleutherodactylus iberia, which can be two-tenths of a millimeter smaller, and Eleutherodactylus limbatus, of which fully mature adults as small as 8.5 mm have been found.

Alas, it seems this frog beats those by half.  I’ll post some more pictures and video eventually, but it is here in Florida in the United States and is much smaller.  A record?  I don’t know.  (Found by Lexi Riley, Maddie Johnston and me).
