    Final Hunger Games update...
    I got contacted by HR today. I was the #1 choice for either position that I applied to. After talking to my current boss, the potential new boss, the just turned ex boss (who asked me to come to work for this company and who took an assignment on the East Coast), and the biggest BOSS at home, I have decided to accept the position that was my first choice (even though it was a first choice by the thinnest of margins). Tomorrow morning, I will tell HR that I am going to accept my #1 choice.

    The one upside that might matter to this thread, expect to see more travel photos:-)
    Congrats! Look forward to the photos.

    Well, they're for kids, not for adults, at least that's the way I see it.
    The kites that were at th is festival were owned by adults. I guess it just comes down to what you like as a person.

    I always thought the fighting kites were interesting.

    My favorite thing to do growing up was flying kites. Every 14th January our home city is covered in a couple of million kites....and people try to cut the string of the other kites in the air, takes a lot of skill and even longer to learn the skill, miss those days, cut fingers and all...

    I really like the Mi 5, but the lack of 4G on T-Mobile is killing me. I was reading something that in theory I can unlock the bootloader and try to reprogram it to pick up a few more bands, but from what I've seen so far...still no 4G.

    Oh well, maybe i keep these for another 2 months and then try for a G5...

    I flew kites when I was a kid and go into a "dog fight" and the trick is we rig the strings with crashed light bulbs and glue...

    I think you can buy a domain under 10$/year + 20$/year web space which wouls be just fine for your blog, and you can install WordPress in CPanel very easily.

    You reminded me of a nerd complaining of how bad he did his exam, but later when the results came he scored all the points 😂

    Anything on HTC these days is a pipe dream and a half. They are officially in the ICU on life support.

    It's not that bad a repair job, provided you had a non-interference variety otherwise you are hosed! Good luck.
    I'm more worried if the pistons and or cams got bent 😕

    If you have an interference timing belt then yes, your pistons and cams are shot, otherwise you should be okay. Usually the replacement along with a new water pump should run you about $800 or so.
