    The other thread got shut down cus a mod didnt think like my "ill conceived humor".

    Your thread in the Storm's 3rd party apps subforum was closed and the posts were edited and deleted because those type posts have no place on this forum. Please refrain from such ill conceived humor from now on. Thanks.

    Well anyways, here it is once again.

    Placebo = Faux Status Screen

    OTA: http://phrehnck.com/stuff/placebo.asp

    Hope this one doesnt get shut down too...

    It was a funny idea. Mods need to take a pill themselves.....hopefully not just a placebo

    it basically tells you that your memory is high and signal is high etc. It's for people who obsess about those things so they can "laugh" at themselves

    phrehnck ... you have posted some great apps and you also have a great sense of humor ...

    but I think you sorely underestimated the sensitivity threshold of your intended audience with this latest release ...

    I think it's hilarious ... please write and PM me an app that will show my Storm always has 100% battery, RAM memory and SD card memory so I can sleep at night without pills or my Mommy tucking me in ... Thanks man!!!

    It's funny that the mods leave HUNDREDS of posts about people claiming that certain apps have "leaks" when those folks do not have any idea what a leak is or how to test for one.

    Odd that those threads "belong" in this forum, but the other thread didn't.

    Oh, snap. I hope I don't get your thread bounced again ;-)

    So odd that your other thread could have gotten shut down, too bad I never caught that one.

    I did catch lots of message on another thread about an app that had to do with private parts. That was around for a long time.

    Placebos....who knew.

    They didn't close all of your threads about the app phrehnck. There is still that one other thread that you opened about placebo in the other forum.

    haha, so I was just messing around and renamed it to net_rim_placebo.cod and added it to Blackberry.Alx and it installed as a system file - its showing there and it works - now if only it could overwrite the original status screen somehow, then it'd be set
