    It's looking like our trip this year will be to Greece. Not 100% sure but it's looking that way.

    Greece has been on my list since I was about 10 years old. Egypt is about the same length of time. So it will be nice to scratch one of those off.
    I've always wanted to visit both of those places. Hope you have a grand time in Greece.

    I didn't even bat an eyelid and upgraded my Surface Pro 3 when it showed up. Very happy with it so far.
    Well, your hardware is more powerful. I'll probably make the jump soon.

    You need about 75 more today to rival the Sahib from 2 years ago...
    Yup. I remember when he used to reply to every comment to hit those numbers...

    Just upgraded the Surface Pro 3 yesterday. Hopefully no issues...

    I'm now in Windows 10 on all laptops.
    I'm 4 for 4 on Win 10:-)

    The next thing I need to do is:

    I've sold one so it needs a clean install.

    I need to clear another one and sell it.

    Need to set up the wife's new laptop.

    Then clean install W10 on the old one because we have issues with it.

    Then hopefully I'm done playing around with laptops for awhile.
    I'm going to install more memory on my old Toshiba Satellite U2505 this week. I might swap my 4GB SP3 with an 8GB SP3. If the swap happens then my Acer Aspire will go to someone in the family most likely overseas.

    Did a lot of walking around over the weekend. Then built some furniture for my wife's office. Storage stuff as that's what's lacking the most.

    We still have lots of painting to do... Needed a break from it.
    I did a lot of driving around and about six loads of laundry...

    Possibly mid June. We're still sorting out things to decide for sure. It may not be Greece but that appears to be where we're leaning.

    The hope is to go to Athens and then hopefully some of the islands. Like all places, there's much to see but little time to see it all.

    We don't want to go in the summer as Greece gets really hot. June should be good temperatures.

    What parts of Scandinavia? I think I've managed to go to most places there. Though much more to explore there as well.

    That sounds good! I'm aware that it does get really hot in Greece in the summer.

    My friend's father went to Norway on a business trip in the winter. He brought back a handmade wool scarf that I just love.

    Norway is great, expensive, but great!

    If you ever decide to go, I'd recommend the shortest route through the fjords, unless you're really into fjords and don't mind the trip on the boat. We found our short cruise through the world heritage section just right but a touch long. You get fjord overload. Didn't help that it's also the main tourist route either so the boat is pretty packed.

    The public transport is pretty reasonable and efficient. It's a beautiful country and the people are nice. We had a great time. Lots of people go hiking but we didn't have that much time unfortunately.

    The two newer laptops we have are pretty full spec'd. They're i5 but that's all I need as I don't game. The wife's new one has 1TB drive and 8GB of RAM, it's also a touch screen. Her older one, which I'm taking, also has 8GB RAM but only a 750GB drive. which is plenty. Neither of us will fill those hard drives. The RAM is sufficient to run our software need so they should suit for the next while. I wouldn't mind getting a SSD for my laptop but it's not necessary.

    Morning folks.

    Nothing like starting your week by almost passing out on the train. Very glad I had some gum on me and was able to sit. I think my sugar levels were a bit too low because I didn't eat as much yesterday.

    Sad news this morning school wise...looks like a student was murdered in an area I use as a shortcut going to classes at times last night.

    Loss of life is always tragic, but more difficult when you know the area or location...

    Morning MIA!

    I've had the same 950XL itch MIA, but after thinking it over, I'm pretty sure my 1520 provides the same "scratch", albeit a little slower. That, and the amount of times I actually pick up my 1520 during the week has become less than one.

    Now that I've upgraded my gamer desktop, at home, I find myself on it rather than the mobile devices anyway.
