User friendly my ......

Like most of the addicts, the moment the new iPhone software came out I upgraded. There were a few apps I was curious to get my hands on from the new AppStore and some others that I'd blow some of my birthday money on as fun-to-have stuff.

Cool. It's been working great. I pulled down Chopper and Things from the AppStore via my iPhone (this is the old one, not the 3G) and started playing. Cool. That was a few days back now.

Today, all my apps stopped working. Not a crash, but clicking on any of my apps resulted in being booted back to the application menu. All iPhone native apps worked fine. WTF?

After some googling I found the answer, but first, the why: Yesterday I downloaded my first App via iTunes and sync'd it. It worked fine, until I sync'd all my apps today. So what happened?

Nothing, as it turns out. I was trying all kinds of crazy things, rebooting my iPhone, reinstalling my apps, etc. Nope - that wasn't it. All you need to do is bring up iTunes, click into the Applications folder and Double click on one of the Apps you downloaded on your iPhone. When it asks for your password, do so, and you'll be authorized. Your next Sync will fix things up.

You shouldn't have to remove/reinstall the apps. I had already, so I can't be 100% sure, but what I read said you should be good.

We Passed.

For those that haven't heard, the wife and I both passed our belt exams. She has reached blue, and I brown (Our dojo goes: white - orange - purple - blue - green - brown - black). I could write a lot on the test itself from the opening run to the ending staring contest (seriously!) and all that transpired in between, but the thing that caught my attention was the next morning.

As the house started to wake up, mainly the wife and I the kids were already up, my eldest daughter comes into our bedroom and asks "Is this cooking oil?". At that moment we were both wide awake. Our eldest is 8, can cook, and knows how to read. So the question was a little odd.

"No," my wife answered. "That's vanilla." My wife got and up and they left the room.

A little while later we were all seated in the dining room having pancakes. My eldest decided that our arms would be sore, so it would be nice if she cooked breakfast. She got her sister to help, and they made pancakes for everyone.

It was a nice start to the Test Hangover day.
