    Oh that's terrible news... sorry to hear.
    It is pretty sad. Notices about student deaths are always difficult to read, but when the word "homicide" pops up, it always grabs your attention. Saw a brief write-up about it in the local online paper on the way home this morning. We'll see what happens but because of the type of death campus and city cops are involved and being tight-lipped.

    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.

    I always fall asleep on the bus just because it's where I can get some alone time lol :p

    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.
    We are looking at first week of July as I have shutdown at work and maybe add on another week.

    What parts of Scandinavia? I think I've managed to go to most places there. Though much more to explore there as well.
    Norway or Finland. I have been to Denmark and Sweden. Also Norwegian has a all you can fly within Norway ticket for cheap.

    My Surface Pro 1 doesn't hang after login anymore and the solution is to not login immediately...
    That is good to know. For some bizarre reason I haven't had any major hiccups with the upgrade to Win10. Acer had the sound issue but about 30 minutes of Internet search fixed it. Surface Pro 3 and the Toshiba laptop updated without a problem and the Dell came loaded with Win10 from the factory.

    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.
    All of Scandinavia is expensive. From my multiple trips to DK, the rule of thumb is to multiply everything by 2.5 from what it would cost in Arizona. Now that I am in CA, perhaps that multiplier is 2.

    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.
    SSD laptops boot times are amazingly fast. I am happy with the Dell and SP3 Pro and my work HP because they have SSD. I might put an SSD in the Toshiba laptop as well.

    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.
    Morning Ed.

    My thing is that I definitely would love to go to two devices if I can, but I'm most likely stuck at 3. I'd want to add the Windows phone more into the rotation though, that's why I was looking at the XL. I could easily try to get another unicorn (1520.3), but I don't want that experience again. I liked the phone, but I'd prefer something newer. I was looking at the 950 but the XL is a bit better because of the dual SIM setup where if I'm traveling in just bring one phone and grab a local sim card.

    If I make the move to the XL, it won't be right now for sure.

    Today I really miss the killer chocolate muffin from the yogurt place by work (day off to someone stuff for school). I'm still not fully recovered from last month's escapade.

    I'll work on the sleep stuff too. Hard to sleep when too much is running through the ears before bed...

    Nope. MSW field placement interview on the agenda, and later on a conference call for fundraising - I recently became a contingency board member for the food justice organization my sister's rebuilding. I was going to do some cleaning between those two events, but my friend called me last night to ask to meet up tomorrow for a favor...so I'm going to head back the GF's do cook tonight because I won't be able to do so tomorrow night like I wanted...

    So I'll have a brief Sahib moment before I go start prepping for the interview.

    I went 1/2 today on my packages. I ordered both a screen protector for the Sony SW3 and a second battery for the G4. I got both packages and I need to return the Sony screen protector because it would appear they sent me a Sony SW2 screen protector. I'm going to charge both G4 batteries and use the new one for the week to see how it holds up.

    I'm kinda mad Google removed the restart option from Android Wear 1.4. Guess not many people used it, but I certainly was in the minority who did. We'll see how my SW3 takes to it.

    Speaking of the SW3 again, I am using it for a bit today and got reminded of why I liked the watch in the first place...and why I curse Sony for being asses in terms of accessories management and distribution. The holder kit should have been killer but it makes the watch look bigger than it needed to be. I want a metal band but it's the same price for a Asus Zenwatch 2 (the larger model) - $150 the cheapest.

    If I can get one cheaply, I'd be fine with pairing the 360 with the G4 and getting a red leather back. I'd keep the all black look with the G Watch R for work and the red leather + silver 360 look for fancier outings...

    Got my Sony SW3 finally updated to 1.4...now I'll out it through its paces soon enough. I want to make sure I use the G4 for a month before I completely made the decision to go back and forth.
