    Whenever this happens, it means that the train that I'm on usually crawls into NYC - yup, literally run at a slower speed. I've seen this 15-20min ride turn into an hour before. That's a real asspain, if you ask me...
    The trains here in the UK stop or get canceled all the time due to various reasons. Weather is a big one, slightest bit of snow and the whole thing comes to a halt. Then you have the people steeling cable for copper. Unfinished engineering work or signaling issues. Then there's everyones favourite of the odd person jumps in front of one.

    I find the term 'rush hour' funny these days, it's more like 'rush hours'...
    it's the truth. I'm literally 2 stops away from NYC, but those two stops are major transfer points so during the rush there are a ton of trains passing through, which can be good and bad at the same time...

    5 days to check out a phone??? What were you doing with it?
    I've come from Android background after using it for nearly 3 years. So i find it difficult to shift from such an open environment to close one. Besides im a tech blogger and my love for mobiles is too much which made me to do this. :)

    Maps still sucked for my location, but Calendar has cosmetic and functional change, which is good. It runs faster, yes I said it already, and Office 2013 responsiveness is testament to that, for one.

    I'm often amazed that things rub as smoothly as they do during rush hour. When it doesn't you get to see how chaotic things are. I give the transit people mad props for their great work.

    Ah I see. Still, 5 days.... oh well, whatever works for you. I switch between WP and Android as I have an Android Tablet. I also came from Symbian so WP was a shock to the system.

    I guess. I'm still on the fence about WP so I'm a little cautious with my praise for it. Yes it has a lot of good points. Not sure if I ever described it as 'fun to use' though...

    After I've watched all these Asian movies I felt for a second totally out of place when I heard the two Japanese guys in the lab talking to each other :)

    A while ago I wrote that it's allowed to work as a prostitute with 16 and to have sex with them in Switzerland.

    Just to keep you in the loop, this was finally changed now. Intercourse with a prostitute under 18 can be punished with 3 years of prison.

    Going to be a long day at work.... have independent inspectors evaulating my boiler plants today. Boss is freaking out having kittens, and just worried about every little piece of dirt and such. For two weeks he has been dreading this, when I know we are prepared. The inspectors will be looking at safety and operations which we are really good. Sigh.....

    Deep breathe.... relax...
