My obsession with Meterberry
OK, I've taken the plunge and deleted Meterberry!!
I found I was spending way too much time checking and resetting my memory and I was becoming obsessed with it as a lot of you can appreciate
Besides, (and I could be wrong) I think it was actually eating away at my battery and memory, which kind of defeats the purpose.
So, I downloaded Memory Eye, which I bought a long time ago and haven't used since Meterberry came out, set it to notify me at 8 mgs and that's it.
If I still get the compulsion to reset, I can always use the reset option in Quicklaunch.
It's been 10 minutes now and so far so go, but we'll see. I can always re download Meterberry if I fall of the wagon.
well i have to check the mem on my phone for beta testing apps purposes, but even when im running slow and refuse to restart my phone, i have quick pull to do a daily restart when im sleeping so i dont have to check the memory, but wait...wait.... i think i never sleep lol
Stay strong. I am not as strong as you are but I would be curious to know if Meterberry really does suck memory and battery. I've been suspicious of it doing so. Anyway good job memory checking is an unecessary OCD.

Help Nate how did you free yourself :alcoholic:
At 44.7 now...but I don't think I pay...44.2 much attention to Meterberry. Its not like...up to 45 I'm compulsive about it...you know?
Down to 40.2...damn theme...uh..I'm completely comfortable how my phone runs without worrying about...whew ok ok ok back up to 43..where was I ?
Oh yea...I just keep meterberry around for fun. :P
I used to obsess over Meterberry. I just moved the app into the downloads folder and don't look at it anymore. I only open it to reset my phone if it feels sluggish. Stay strong and fight the temptation.
I check my meterberry like every time I unlock my phone
MeterBerry Twelve-Step Program
Step 1 - We admitted we were powerless over our MeterBerry addiction - that our lives had become unmanageable
Step 2 - Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity (BBC hybrids are a good start)
Step 3 - Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of themes without OCD slots as we understood them (or, if we must have OCD slots, we found manageable replacements like UberTwitter and push weather)
Step 4 - Made a searching and fearless inventory of our 151 and 5.0 files
Step 5 - Admitted to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our MeterBerry wrongs
Step 6 - Were entirely ready to remove MeterBerry from our devices
Step 7 - Humbly asked theme makers to upgrade themes to work with 151
Step 8 - Made a list of all of the time we lost obsessing over MeterBerry, and became willing to make amends (get yo' ass a free QuickPull)
Step 9 - Made direct amends to others wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others or our BlackBerry
Step 10 - Continued to take measures to avoid checking memory and battery percentages and when we were wrong promptly admitted it
Step 11 - Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with our devices as we understood our devices, praying only for knowledge of RIM's will for us and the power to run apps without concern over megabyte usage
Step 12 - Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other MeterBerry addicts, and to practice these principles in all our affairs
God that is a good post to wake up too !
BB owners sleep? And a BB owner who is the BBOS Forum Manager??
