    sorry to beat a dead horse.. Just currious if we were still missing something if the Updated Cortana still didnt have a weather icon on the live tile and if we never got the 4 Quiz questions.
    1. The weather tile is showing up ONLY in the morning.
    2. The 'quiz' will show up in case Cortana doesn't know enough about you, so she will ask you some stuff.

    Just check next morning. You will see the tile with circle, after that - weather tile (sun, cloud, rain), after that - temperature. I'm sure it works for everyone atm.

    You know what's REALLY funny is that this is not the trade I went to school for. I went to school and graduated with my Airframe and Power plant license. I am FAA Certified to work on airplanes and helicopters. I was a BlackHawk mechanic in the Army and just could not get off the ground then I got out (this was back in the mid 90's).

    I just figured I would go into computers (as it was a hobby of mine) until I could find something in my trade. Never happened. I got to loving this and stuck with it! :D

    How life throws curveballs.

    Growing up, all my friends in school were working at Taco Bell and McDonalds or some other fast food joint (not that there is anything wrong with that). But to me, the amount of effort you put in and the minimal pay I got was not worth it to me. I made it 3 weeks and quit. Went to work in a lumber yard making pallets, cleaning machines, sorting wood and all kinds of other things.

    damn, rambling.

    Anyway, going to head out here in a few to hit the water in the Kayak! :D

    Talderon in his red boat (Kayak). We did 5 miles, I was pooped (this was Sunday). Going out again today. Maybe not as far. :D

    Or as Dave Barry would say: 'Talderon and the Locksmith's Apprentice' would be a good name for a rock band.

    That's funny Talderon because I'm in the Royal Air Force right now and I've seen your lovely Blackhawks up close and personal in Afghanistan. I'd love to leave and get a job with Microsoft.
    I'm just finishing up a foundation degree then I'll be applying for Microsoft to take any job I can. I'm an ICT technician so I'm sure Microsoft can find a use for me.

    Bug: after device hard reset and re-sync with outlook.com, Cortana restarts the quiz on first run, even though interests are properly synced.

    (I know this is not a bug thread, but at least here Talderon might see it)

    Talderon, you sound like me. I played with Apple ][+ computers in middle school, was an electronics tech at a cable TV company my senior year (85-86), then a Nuclear Power Plant Operator on a submarine in the Navy. Got out and became a paramedic, did that for ten years until I got burned out, and then got a tech support job. When they closed up the division, I welded for a couple years at Caterpillar, got an IT job in a factory, and launched two plants. Got my associate in computer programming in the meantime, got laid off, and now I work in a bank. Currently my position is a dead-end, but I've started back on my BS in CS, and I'm looking for something better. Oh, and one day I hope to make enough money that I can afford pilot lessons.

    Strange.... Try reinstall weather app probably. I have no idea why it's not working.

    Also check if Cortana is set up to show weather of your current location.

    Get a password app such as:
    https://keepersecurity.com/
    Has extensions for browsers on windows as well as a very nice WP app. Pay the $10 annual or whatever their fee for multiple device syncing and you will make your important stuff way more secure and save yourself many,many hours tying to figure out what your passwords were, or clicking on "forgot password" buttons.

    This is a similar story to my own... I was in a support battalion in the Army during the early 90's and worked on all of the systems in the M1's, M2's etc. so I took my basic electronics, circuit card knowledge and hobby of taking apart Packard Bell computers (that's all they sold in the PX in those days) and made an IT career out of it.

    Talderon what unit(s) were you in?

    I was 8th Infantry/1st Armored in Germany and then 5th Infantry/2nd Armored in the US.

    Would be good to actually say when it will come for other countries. I read here in Germany in forums and always when they speak about the OS they complain about cortana will come perhaps 2015 or 2016. That's a big drawback for the people who read that.

    Ok, these estimates are the best we can come up with based on current workload and staffing. That's the best we got.

    Now...

    We are increasing the staff and adding more skillsets to help us move things along. Reason why UK and China have been pushed up from previous estimates. I cannot promise that this will be the case with ALL markets/regions, but we're doing the best we can.

    This is a HUGE undertaking no matter how you look at it and takes coordination from a GLOBAL perspective. It's not just all here in Redmond.

    Just wondering Talderon are you guys keeping the 930 back for the Cortana release? Would make perfect sense flagship plus my new best friend built into it lol

    Hi Talderon, I'm not sure if you know, but few days ago, after unlocking my 1520 I sometimes get "Loading..." or "Resuming..." on the Start screen (!), and the phone heating like crazy at the same time. I was guessing it might be because of Cortana, so I disabled her (my default region if Ireland). So far I everything is fine.
