The time of day does have bearing on when FAP occurs. I Do know I enter my  Bonus Zone data before you do Gabe.

Why would the time of day have a bearing on when FAP occurs?  Other than 2:00AM to 8:00AM if you have Bonus data, of course.  And with when you enter the Bonuz Zone, I enter mine at 2AM Eastern Time.

Kinda like waiting for the last 15 seconds to increase my bid in an EBay auction. :-)


Years ago I got into a bidding war for a PC game (CD) on eBay.  Somehow, even with the latency, and going back and forth up until the last seconds, I won.  I got the game for something like $6.40.  We kept increasing out bids by five or ten cents, but my last bid was raised by $2 in the last couple of seconds, so I got it.  Smiley Tongue

Virginia is my second home.  If I ever had the chance to move back there, I would.  I grew up and now again live in Western NY State, but in 1993 I moved to Northern VA and absolutely loved it.  I ended up moving to MD in 2000, then back here in 2002, but I would absolutely love to live in VA again someday.  I miss it terribly.  Northern VA is a melting pot of people.  People from just about every part of the world you can think of.  It was amazing.  And there were a lot of great job opportunities there, as well.  I lived in Manassas and worked in Manassas and Fairfax.  When I moved to MD, OTOH, I hated it.  Perhaps it was just the area (Hagerstown) that I didn't like.     

 

My brother moved to VA a couple of years before I did, which is why I went down in the first place.  He's still there, though in southern VA now.

 

My cell coverage here is okay, at best.  Most of the time just one or two bars, but on a really clear day and in just the right spot I can get three.   Not really a problem for talking and texting, but trying to use the data is a bit rough.  5Mbps or so is about the best I've seen with my phone, but it's usually around 2Mbps.
