    I can get that. I think you got more snow than I did here but it being below freezing isn't helping.

    Well a Persian friend of ours made this tray Baklava. It's amazing. Probably some of the best I've ever had. And yes people I have been to the Middle East.

    Was out shopping for additional items to hang on the Christmas Tree. The usual tinsel, globes, shiny and glittering bells, little Santas with maniac blue eyes..

    But saw this nearby..... cheap mass-produced knock off of the Last Supper..

    Maybe I'm late to the party but the original Pixel is being used in stock images now? Found in the current Aldi circular.

    How do you like driving on the proper side of the road in France?
    I haven't driven it yet! LOL! I've driven in France in a rental car though so it's not a new thing.

    Since we still have to sell the other car I thought I'd let my wife drive the 4x4 until then. Keeps me from getting confused.

    Not that I have that issue in general but it's a weird feeling sometimes switching back and forth on the same day.

    I don't know if I mentioned this but I've now driven in all situations where the driver is the same or different to the country.

    It wasn't really one of my goals in life but it's nice to be able to say that.

    I would consider having the chain checked. It's a common problem with those engines( or it could be with a bit newer revision of 2.0 diesel, not 100% sure), some do nice miles, others have chain brake down at 100-130k km and apparently it takes quite a lot with it if it goes.
    I'll take a look at the service records and see what's been done then go from there.

    How I feel about snow depends on the day. Today I hate it.
    I can relate to this. I've had enough snow in my life.

    Currently we have high winds and torrential rain. Fun.

    Since the Mi 5, my favorite feature on all phones I've used is the reading mode/blue light filter.

    Mi 5, Mi Note 2, LG V20, and even the 950XL. I say this to state Andy's phone doesn't have this feature currently. It is stated it'll get there for 8.0, and when it does, Andy's phone will be my daily driver. Until then, I'm sticking with the Mi Note 2.

    Even the work phone has it and it makes using that device much easier on the eyes. My tablet doesn't and even with a darker background and the brightness on 0, it's a pain to use for extended periods.

    That's why I value that feature a lot.

    I think this is a great plan. It also sounds like this feature is a really important one to you so you're good at holding out. I mean, you're already pretty strong at doing so but this is just another way to add to it.

    On the flip side, you have Scienceguy Labs available to test it when it drops. I would say 99 too but I don't know if he'll keep the Essential Phone that long.

    Since you mentioned the Mi Note 2, I forgot to ask if you have had any progress with the wired headphones situation?

    Oh, I've got access to an Andy's phone already. I can sideload 8.0 beta but I don't want to. So it will sit and wait.

    It feels exactly as I thought it would and itsnt much bigger than my work phone either. It's currently running on the December patch too. So I have no problem of keeping it in the drawer until I get 8.0 OTA.

    Oh, the update to MIUI 9 looks like it solved that problem...thought I mentioned this a while back. It's aging pretty well and I can use USB-C headphones, Bluetooth headphones and wired headphones without issues on it.

    Sweet! I remembered you saying that you'll test it soon and report back but I couldn't recall if you tested it or not.

    Ooh I had no idea. In that case, you really need an award for willpower for being able to hold out. I wanna be like you when it comes to resistance...

    No awards needed. I have the choice of continuing to use a fine device so I don't have to rush.

    Yup, it works flawlessly now. I do like my Mi Note 2, although on a hardware level I'd replace it with a V30 easily.

    LG software wise just isn't updating their unlocked models like they used to. It's sad, really as I do love that V30 in blue or violet.
