    Now that's a great picture! Portsmouth, UK right? I've never seen that before.

    My point was that a lot of people who used to own Nokia phones prior to the switching to WP were pretty sure that Elop was in bed with MS, which is why they chose WP over Android or sticking to Meego. That was my initial point. It is true that it's all speculation.
    It will certainly be interesting who will take Ballmer's seat. I don't really see why it should be Elop though. But what do I know :)

    Yes it's in the UK, south west of London about 2 hours away. The South West train lines had a sale on for 15 return to any destination on their line so we went there. :) The sale is still on this weekend so we're planning to go back and take the ferry over to the Isle of Wight.

    That's their viewing deck thing they have there. I though that was the most prominent thing they show when they talk about Portsmouth. I was just surprised by how nice it was.

    I do recommend getting to Portsmouth if you're ever in the area. It's rather nice.

    I really like Great Britain. And because I can't go there this year, I'll get some tea now.

    I got a coffee in remembrance that coffee used to be the most popular drink in the UK. It's probably more like Red Bull or something like that these days.

    Red Bull always remembers me how lucky I am to be able to choose what I consume. It tastes disgustingly, it's basically just a by-product of decaf mixed with sugar sold for a ridiculous price. It's a health killer and I see children drinking this stuff like water.

    Coffee is great. I don't drink a lot of it anymore for several reasons, one of them a too high blood pressure that runs in my family, but coffee tastes great and is actually quite healthy (except for the blood pressure thing which isn't a problem if you don't have the problem).

    I correct my post above: Coffee is great if it is good coffee ;-)

    What kind of coffee do you drink? I've heard that drinking coffee that is made through a espresso machine is better than drip filter or other methods because the caffeine is actually less. Not too mention that the espresso shot keeps all the good parts of the coffee, meaning the oils and antioxidants that typically get filtered out when using the filter method. I also believe that some science has indicated 2-3 cups of coffee a day is fine for most people.

    Apparently tea reduces blood pressure. Tea does have caffeine in it but it also has tryptophan in it too. So that maybe why it's better.

    Until recently I was drinking a lot of coffee at various places. Not counting cafes, I liked the one at home the most, made by a Jura coffee machine. The one from the machines in the lab was quite disgusting but it provided me with caffeine ;-)

    This is my current coffee machine: ICONA ECO 310.W - Espresso - Coffee Makers - De'Longhi United Kingdom

    This is the one I still have in Australia which I hope to ship here one day: https://www.sunbeam.com.au/Coffee-an...o-Machine.aspx

    I really miss my Australian machine, the one we have currently is slightly disappointing.

    I'm not aware of any other company that won't let a customer pick up a package at the UPS site.
    No just Microsoft being a pain they must lose a bit of money for that policy.

    Is it a good sign when you apply for a job and they call you back within 2 hours? Also - what's the consensus on how far is the maximum commute in a car?

    I'd say that's a very good sign. Max commute to me is 1 hour but that's just me, some people are happy with longer commutes.

    The MacBook Air really isn't expensive anymore if compared to similar power books. The MacBook Pros are.
    Compared to similar yes, my budget in my head no. :P

    BP, I had this issue as well before. What you need to do when you type "im" is in the word selections, scroll over to "I'm". It should autocorrect from now on. At least it does for me now.
    I did that it works for while then goes back to in after a while, my device must know what best for me. :P

    I think that depends on what they told you?

    For me personally a distance up to 70 km I can live with. Under 30 minutes would be better. Both counted for one way. For the job I begin next week I'll have less than 10 minutes by bike, that's perfect ;-)

    I'm going to meet my brother now. Have a good lunch everybody!

    Nearer is better but this job is good experience of rebranding a company for a month and it's about an hour's commute. They rang to check my salary expectancy and the commute distance.

    You're in the Midlands are you not? Which direction is your commute? North, south, east or west?

    Personally if they pay you well I'd just go for it. :)

    Yeah I'm in the midlands. They want me to commute south to Meriden, between Birmingham and Coventry.
