Feel free to stalk my Internet name(s) if you wish - it's how I make most of my closest contacts these days. Just note that I don't really believe in social constructs when they get in the way of satisficing (or in the way of my goal of learning as much as possible).

Don't take anything I say/do too seriously. A lot of the things I do (that may look weird/stupid on the outside) are the types of things that help me adjust my posterior probability of various things - especially low probability events.Sometimes I hit on a jackpot/very interesting idea. I'm kind of messy since it helps facilitate creative destruction.

I have a lot of respect for all of the sciences. Tactically, I'm developing heuristics for rationality, impartiality, anti-laziness, and creation+identification+searching for what's relevant+reliable. Strategically, I just want to learn everything.

A lot of my thought processes involve my creating new hypotheses and refuting them on my own. I still document the thought process since it's important and may be important for future "true" hypotheses.

Yeah - just tried. Surprisingly, still doesn't work (doesn't allow me to go into options). I have a Galaxy S5

comment How to prevent specific apps from using mobile data?
Sadly doesn't answer the question. :( The apps aren't using the data in the background, but often use it when wifi signal becomes weak and the phone autoswitches to 4G.

Okay I'll try that. I'm looking for the data files. I'm presuming that the download directory is the same as that of the default web browser?

Oh wow - thanks so much for the answer! Do you know how hard it would be, and how deep my knowledge has to be to use intent?

Actually it does sync. I know since I annotate the Dropbox PDFs I read on my tablet and I can see my annotations on my computer.

comment Why don't any of the files on my Android tablet show up on my computer when I connect my computer with my Android tablet through USB?
Now that I'm looking again, "Transfer files (Media Transfer Protocol)" is selected under USB Settings, and "Allow sync with PC" is selected under "Accounts & Sync" settings.

Okay - I should look USB mode up and see how that goes. I just edited "scroll over to" out and replaced it with something more descriptive.
