    The weather is a mix of snow/sleet/rain. Sigh. Much fun to get around in.
    I looked up sleet and it was translated as graupeln. Of course I know this word, but I don't really know what it means. I'm always glad if I don't know a word in English I wouldn't know in German either. It must be some kind of snow-rain. In my dialect nobody uses the word graupeln.

    It's basically freezing rain. Or ice rain. It's fairly nasty stuff.

    Thanks. It is a short trip and not under the best of reasons. I'm looking forward of getting out of this weather for a few days and just trying get things settled.

    The tropics is a great place for a cold beer...
    Sorry it is not for the best of reasons, whatever they are. Hope all is well or that all turns out well, buddy.

    Drive careful. Or, just aim for the obnoxious people. Either is good.

    Yup. A snow-rain mix is exactly what sleet is. No fun to be around in.

    Thanks, I think everything will work itself out. I'm not driving myself at all because it is a hot mess. Mass transit is delayed but that's what I will use to get to the airport.

    Being from a smaller, very poor-ish town, I forget how handy mass transit can be when needed.

    Fine. You just be careful. I will take of the obnoxious people.

    Well, then tell MSFTisMIA to drink one for ME, not YOU.

    Really- I don't cuss, carry on, pick fights, drive fast, or gamble. Beer and coffee drinking are my only 2 bad habits. You can be a LITLE more supportive.

    I drink coffee and like sweets. I like a good meal too. I have a glass of wine or some other alcohol occasionally, usually cider. Is that better? :P

    Forgiven, LaRUE.

    Wine in Jamaica, with a side order of sweets. I hear MSFTisMIA is buying, but we need to get there quick.

    LaRUE will split the sweets with you, I am sure.

    Luckily, I will not have to split my beer. Of course, I would, mind you, just don't have too.

    I'd say my worst habit is definitely eating excessive amounts of ice cream. But I always share when somebody's around :)

    That's an expensive tab to be buying wine, beers, sweets and ice cream...so I'll buy one round and we figure it out from there...

    I did the math and I could have almost 500 WP devices for the price of three airline tickets!

    That was nice, I was talking with a colleague and the biophysics specialist and my data seems really very interesting. My data is strange, but in a way that it can't really be a mistake, because mistakes would lead to different strange data. Good stuff going on here, good stuff. ;-)

    I both designs for different reasons. I like the big bold heaviness of the 920 because of its N9 design roots. But I like the sleekness of the 8X. I wish HTC had tweaked the camera a bit more, added it the wireless charging and had doubled the internal storage. I still say that the 8X and 925 are the best looking WP8 models out.
    Having cycled through a lot of WP8 devices in the last three months, I would have to agree. However for some weird reason for me the 810 feels the best in my hand.

    Honestly, as much as I like all the posters, the thread has gotten harder to read. Sp for me, it has lost a little bit of its charm. So now i skim whenever necessary and poet in spots where I can have conversations and read conversations relatively interesting to me.
    Amen...
