    Excellent. You're liking the L930?

    Nice website. Do you have a shop or something? I think that was your plan if I recall... been so long!

    Only thing I miss on the 930 is the glance screen - other than that its a solid phone and have no complaints.

    Thanks - oh yeah the shop... plans changed repeatedly... decided to branch into esports and go a lot larger than originally planned hence the esports section on my website - been hitting brick walls with local councils and getting funding

    We could probably have long discussions about councils and funding! My wife has been dealing with both for the last two years. It's been painful. She's still not on a steady income stream but things have been better. Just not sure what happens after Aug this year.

    So are exports good?

    My only complaint with the L930 was the battery. I didn't use glance on the L920 so it wasn't a major thing for me. I get amazing battery life now so no complaints. :)

    Yeah - trouble is people that I need to help don't have a clue when it comes to mainstream gaming.

    Exports? Im not shipping anything ;) - Esports as in professional gaming

    My 930 battery is fine get a whole day out of it with moderate use

    Well I showed my ignorance there. :P

    I'm surprised that you'd have difficulty with funding but at the same time I'm not surprised. Banks are still nervous unless you have several 100 thousand sitting in the bank or something. Most people have got conservative with their thinking and 'new' markets (I know gaming isn't new) that they know little about will scare them.

    Oh! I wish I worked in central London sometimes. Would probably be more fun. :P I got a call from a recruiter on Wednesday for building services. I haven't replied yet to let him know he doesn't know how to read. :P

    Let's see if I can remember where I got to...

    I think our travels were - Marrakesh (non EU), Belgium (Ghent), Finland and Prague. In August we did a road trip to Thun, Switzerland and stayed at Luxembourg, Strasbourg, Thun, stopped by Bern, Dijon and St Quentin. In Oct we went to Paris, our nephew was supposed to visit but things didn't turn out that way. At Christmas we went to Barcelona and spent a day in Tarragona.

    It's a bit nicer looking but has it's moments where it doesn't load that well occasionally. I still have issues with TapaTalk from time to time and the WC app for Android sometimes doesn't work.

    Other than that I like it. :)

    Same old ****, just a different day...but I'm good overall.

    Still doing my masters (halfway finished); upgraded - on a Z3 like Rue as my daily driver and a 930 like you for taking decent pictures. Picked up a N7 2013 (although I wouldn't mind getting a Z Ultra GPE).

    I use TapaTalk and the WC app. Is there something better? I kind of like TapaTalk, it's quicker.

    Not sure. He never came by to say good-bye but my guess would be he got a more serious job. He was also working on an app with his brother or something.

    So many people have come and gone on here. I feel like a dinosaur sometimes. :P

    Morning all!

    I don't seem to be on as much as I was at one time. Well, I guess I'm probably on as much, but just not posting as much... All the "sky is falling" threads of late, I find out better to not get involved with.

    On another note, hopefully I'll get my 1520 screen fixed and I'm thinking of trying to get an MS Band... Just not sure if I'm better off waiting for 2.0 (assuming the rumored of it are true). What's everyone's thought on Band 1.0 vs. Waiting?

    Morning or afternoon I think...

    I'd like to help you with that but I haven't seen the Band but maybe waiting for the next rev would be an idea.

    Did you drop your 1520! :O

    Yeah, my 1520 had a series of unfortunate accidents, the third one was a drop that shattered the screen. When iI get it fixed, I want to get a case that is one piece, hard, and sticks out above the screen a little. Thinking about this one... http://shop.windowscentral.com/incip...medium=content

    There's a poll asking which OEM you'd like to see make a WP. It's sounding like a BP rant in the comments... Sony!

    Poll: Which OEM would you most like to see make a Windows Phone? | Windows Central

    That would be something though. The Z3 would kick but on WP. You know what would be cool is the ability to swap out OS. Put W10 or Android on your Sony device as you see fit. There's something innovative!

    Now if they can only get around the whole Xbox/Playstation thing...
