    Well, I decided on the S8. Looked at the S8+ but I feel like the additional size could make the fingerprint scanner etc fairly awkward. I have fairly big hands but it seems a little much for one handed use which I still do quite a bit.

    It's not your fault. Anything that has the following concept in it is already problematic:

    "The first rule of English is that there is an exception to every rule."
    If you compare English to Spanish that axiom takes on a whole new meaning. Español, for the most part, is phonetic. You spell it like you say it. Only 3 rules for accents and only one silent letter (h) to deal with.

    Makes sense. Please let us know how that goes for you!
    I hope you'll enjoy the S8.

    I can kind of relate. There is a phone I wish to try but it's more than likely not going to happen so I'll probably stick to the same phone. It's my favorite one I have owned so it's not a horrible fate or anything xd

    Edit: I forgot about the G5 Plus that I am trying out before giving it up to my uncle in a few weeks. I find it interesting but not as interested in one for myself.

    Switch process part one is complete. Hopefully I can complete part 2 by Friday, we'll see.

    Speaking of switching, that Virgin Mobile service for $1 is kind of tempting even though it's only iPhones. The idea is interesting at most. Sprint works around here but I haven't heard good things in a while. To be fair, it could be possible that the network has changed. Even so, I don't think I could be bothered to try a different network until I deal with this process completely.

    So quick update on the residency application.

    I got the letter for my biometrics so I'm taking care of that tomorrow.

    We requested for our passports to be returned and they just came back yesterday. Which is good. So no stressing over getting those back in time for our trip to Greece or other trips we may make between here and there.

    So once the biometrics in, it's just waiting after that. No idea how long it will take.

    Nice. At least you've got some movement in the process.

    I posted the 70s music list earlier - you many have to look back a little bit to see it.

    It's still too short for my taste (not all are 12" versions) but we'll see. It may end up being 50 songs in total.

    It still may be all for nothing...

    Depending on what agreements happen about EU/UK citizens. Also the UK has brought in the ability to revoke residency into their law so this whole thing could be a waste of time.

    They've been pretty harsh with people as of late. Some of the stories...

    I understand. A bit of that is happening here under certain circumstances too. Lots of people in immigration limbo are even more scared than they've ever been.

    Now, this is the second time in two months that this damn thing has frozen on me...both times I was doing a simple action of checking the time with the watch on the charger. And even though I did a soft reset, it almost happened again. Really not a fan of Wear 2.0. I still may not downgrade to 1.5 on the Huawei watch to give it more of a "fair shake".

    It's not all roses with the Moto 360 either as I also had to do a restart today as well. But at least the watch settled down once I put it on the charger before I did the reboot...it was doing a little flickering screen action.

    I'll give an example of what I mean.

    1 - Person living here for over 25 years. Because of rule brought in 2011, no longer qualifies for permanent residency. Married with kids.

    2 - Child born in the UK to parents from Hungry (one of the last 8 Eastern EU countries to join recently). Child has UK passport. Up for renewal. They won't renew it due to parents nationality.

    There's many more but you get where I'm coming from.

    That's just trash...but sadly not surprising that they did that.

    I figured it was the same song but I was curious what the Donna Summer version sounded like.

    The version I have was from my college mp3 free grabbing days. I need to sit and edit the tags.

    That seems like it was quicker than doing the first step was. May you get the best outcome and good luck!

    Do you have to give up Canadian citizenship? Or you can have a dual.

    I'm not applying for citizenship only residency.

    I already have dual citizenship. I'm Canadian/Australian. UK would be three, which is allowed but I don't see the point in getting it.

    Haven't been tired this much in a while. Didn't do anything physically but mentally. This damn mathematics. I'm dragging these two areas for a month now. I never liked analythic geometry nor did I like trigonometry.
