Blackberry Bold Caller Exception Tip

index_devices I recently picked up a BlackBerry Bold and I must say I love it. I would tend to put my phone onto silent at night and this has led me to miss a few important calls. So when I got the BlackBerry I wondered if it had anything up it's sleeve to prevent this and it does. I thought I'd blog this tip for anyone who hasn't found it but is interested.

1. From the home screen navigate to the profiles menu item and select it.

2. Scroll to beyond the bottom of the screen, after Off, and you'll find an option for Advanced.

3. Select it and you'll see an option called "Use Active Profile Except for:". Scroll down to the check box "Important Calls"

4. Press the BlackBerry key and select Edit from the menu.

5. In the resulting screen you will be able to choose the contacts from whom a different profile can be used, the profile the phone should use when they contact you and finally the ring tone for any incoming calls.

6. Once you've made the changes press the BlackBerry button and save the changes.

That's you done. Now when one of the contacts you have selected contacts you, including texts and hopefully emails too but I still need to test emails, the phone will ignore the active profile and will use this one instead. Great for filtering out calls if you've work to do or if you have your phone on silent at night.

Any questions about this or anything else give me a shout.

Radon in Newry, Mourne and Down - Action & Education Needed

Council budgets have been and continue to be slashed and perhaps that's the reason why more is not being done to educate people on the risk Radon gas is posing to their health in the area of Newry, Mourne and Down. A recently published Government report includes the below map which starkly highlights the huge areas of the district that are potentially exposed to high levels of this naturally occurring radioactive gas.



While the UK Government recognises and highlights the role this gas plays in causing lung cancer the EPA in the U.S. goes further adding numbers and additional facts such as : 1. 21,000 deaths a year are linked to Radon gas in the U.S.  2. It's the second biggest cause of lung cancer after smoking 3. Radon can enter the home through the water supply as well as the soil 4. There is a risk of stomach cancer from ingesting water containing Radon and lung cancer from inhaling the gas carried in the water.
To help protect and educate the population it's time the c…

Asteroid 1999 FN53: The Truth

This is a short post just to correct reports coming out of some media outlets. The 0.9 km wide 1999 FN53 asteroid is not going to hit us on May 14th. There are no instabilities in its orbit that might send it our way. In fact it will not hit us within the next 8000 years. Its going to miss us by about 7 million miles. Panic over. Check out the link below from NASA JPL for more details:
