NuAngel – more than an online handle to me

Strange as it is to say, I don’t know if I’ll ever “not be” NuAngel. As I mentioned a few years ago, I registered NuAngel@hotmail.com as an email address on February 8th, 1999. Now, it’s been another 3 years, making the name “NuAngel” over 16 years old. As I once mentioned, I may have used the name as a nickname on ICQ or a handful of other places before registering at Hotmail. But once it was my Hotmail address, it stuck.


I’ve used the name on every network I could register on. Social networks. Gaming networks. Forums. Comments sections on news sites. It didn’t matter. I have been beaten to the name a few times, sometimes I don’t mind, sometimes I wish I had gotten there sooner. Some people have commented that there is already a NuAngel, inc. in the world. Their trademark was registered before I came up with a handle on the Internet, that is true. But I don’t think I have ever tarnished their brand, and I don’t think there’s much chance of confusing our two purposes. In fact, when the time comes for me to have kids, I wholly intend to purchase an inordinate amount of NuAngel, inc. products!


But today is a milestone. As I mentioned, I began using the name, almost on a whim, in 1999. 16 years ago. I’m currently 30. I’ve literally gone over half of my life as NuAngel. I love this name. I love this identity. I’m proud of my public persona, glad to be a semi-public figure. My F-Level Internet celebrity has rarely been a curse, has really made things enjoyable. And I plan to jump back in to it in the near future. More updates coming later this year, but I have been happy to make this site an archive of my past. Don’t worry, even if another site comes online, content will be mirrored here! NuAngel.net is home.

FIXED! Sprint ATIV S Neo Developer Preview 8.1 Unable to Activate after Reset

There has clearly been an issue with Windows the Phone 8.1 Developer Preview and CDMA phones. The issue was discovered a while ago, but it wasn’t an issue you were aware of, typically, until it was too late. My issue was that, after having to “factory default” my phone, it refused to properly reactivate with my carrier, Sprint. I had texting and voice calls, but no data or picture messages. Some research suggested the APN data just needed to be filled in, but calling Sprint resulted in being told that they don’t give out APN information because they provision over NAI, and their support forum was painfully not supportive.

Complaints aside, there is a way to fix this. Continue reading “FIXED! Sprint ATIV S Neo Developer Preview 8.1 Unable to Activate after Reset”
