    Would be nice to get thread milestone bragging rights, but I don't think I've been close to getting one yet. I'll try harder next time around

    I've made many posts on here and I still miss the milestones. I don't try that hard either so maybe there's a trick to it. :P BP hasn't been that lucky either.

    I'm not like "typical" women. I hate shopping for clothes. I'll spend hours in MicroCenter, but if it's not a tech store, I'm in and out quickly. I'm the antithesis of a "fashionista" though. I'm a hardcore geek.

    More milestones will be available, though. So it's open in terms of who will get them.

    There's a tendency to paint everyone with the same brush. My wife isn't a big fan of shopping either. She doesn't mind doing a bit of it but she's not hardcore like some. I don't mind shopping but I find it's getting more and more difficult to find things I like. Almost all stores these days focus on 20 somethings and if you don't 'fit' that look you basically can't find anything. So I either have to spend a fortune finding nice clothes or I just wait until the fashion changes enough that it isn't horrid if I wear it.

    That's great to be a bit different than others, have a different interests, but sometimes it causes troubles for us. That happens because when people don't understand something they use to laugh or criticize. Just can't understand that not everyone must be almost the same.

    Hardcore geek.. Hope you're NOT THAT hardcore gekk! : )

    The half describing the school sounds typical. Are they actually asking for full page response? Seems a bit excessive if they are. Normally with selection criteria you just need to address the criteria and keep it simple. I'd like to mention that I'm not a big fan of those types of applications. Most of the ones I've seen are typically schools and governments. I've also seen ones where you have to give a presentation.
    They give the opportunity for full-page responses when asking for information on stuff like current duties and responsibilities etc.

    Ah. I hope I never have to do one of those applications. Then again, I'm not applying for government/school positions so highly unlikely. :)

    If you don't have the Amber update yet, you might want to keep it that way if you hate minor irritating issues...

    I updated through Nokia Software Updater for Retail and now every time I reset the device the volume changes to 13. I contacted Nokia support directly and they say this is by design:

    Rose (9:33:58)

    I have checked that this will be a normal behaviour of phone, Muessig. This is to comply with European audio limitation, which is mandatory in new devices in EU in 2013, to avoid the possible damage of ear hearing. You can still adjust the volume level up to 30 with the volume key on the side.

    Muessig (9:35:03)

    So you can confirm that after the Amber update every Lumia device will automatically reset its volume level to 13 regardless of what it was before and that this is a feature and not a bug. I will have to change it myself every single restart from now on?

    Rose (9:35:38)

    That is right, Muessig. This is to comply with European audio limitation.

    Interesting. Is that a hard reset or just an off/on thing? I don't necessarily see that as a bad thing. I can imagine someone having their phone on a high volume and then forgetting it was that high.

    I am hoping I get the update soon. I've started to have battery issues and can't seem to figure out if it's an app causing the issue or something else. So I was going to wait until the amber update to see if it fixes it or if I need to send in the phone, again.

    Ever since I went to the update I charged my battery to about 90% or so and then used it as normal, turning it off at night. I last charged it 3-4 days ago, with the phone being on around 15 hours a day, at a guess. A battery life of 3-4 days is by far the best I've had with this phone. Don't know what they did but I like it.

    As far as the volume goes, I think its useful if you're listening to music all the time and have the phone on a high volume, but I like my phone on about 20 for everyday use and having to readjust it every single time I turn the phone on and off when I've not had to do that before is irritating.

    So it is turning it on an off. Yeah that can be annoying. For me that works cause I normally don't have mine higher than 13-15 anyway. My wife on the other hand is going to hate that.

    Hopefully the update fixes my battery issues. Over the weekend I was getting about a 12% battery drain and I had nothing running. I was just looking at the screen and it seemed to drop about 2% battery in about 60 sec. I've noticed the WPC app drains my battery pretty quick so I try not to use it much. I reinstalled the FB app as I think that might had something to do with it. As it is I'm at a loss as to what's causing the drain. I wish I had the ability to see resources. I know the whole idea of WP is to let the OS do everything, however it seems not to do it the way I want atm. :P

    Has anyone got a surface with 8.1 beta installed on it - noticed a groovy little improvement yesterday that I hadn't noticed before and isn't present on 8. When you swipe the charms bar in from the right the windows logo does like a holographic colour "shimmy" before settling on your theme colour.

    I guess it's a nice effect but probably something I'd shut off. :P I don't have a surface, though I would like one. Just don't have practical use for one yet.

    Don't mind me I'm just waffling. Waffling is good for long essays in college and university. They like waffle there. I'm not a fan of the waffle, unless I can eat it, preferably with ice cream an syrup. :D (real Canadian syrup too no that cheap synthetic crap.)

    They're having a party at my work for retirees. I'm not sure if I would attend a party, even if it's free at my work if I was retired. They fed them the cafe food and I have to be honest it's not the best.
