    New fire about 0.5 miles away. We are being evacuated again. Groan, this is getting old!
    Omg, stay safe! This must be a nuisance.

    Went to the place where I got my frames from.
    Got my prescription but corporate will decide if they will allow the return. I have been told that this will take 2 weeks so I will wait and then decide if it will be necessary to fight them via CC and insurance.

    Sigh. I'm done with this provider either way. Too many choices to be dealing with this.

    On a cooler note, the newest coworker learned today that I'm really into phones...and has said that she would ask me what phone to get when she decides to switch. She was shocked that I knew so much because she thought that our other coworker would know more haha. She has a iPhone 6 (I think a 6s actually since she says that she has the rose gold color).

    She was asking if Android still needed apps to kill the background processes that drain battery unknowingly and I told her no, and that a lot has changed for Android since 2013 (that was the last time she had one). It was cool to have conversation about phones and iOS/Android for like 30 minutes. I like being useful lol.

    Surprisingly my A3 has had an update in the last month that I didn't know about until now (downloading it now). Hopefully it will get the December patch but I'm not holding my breath for it. Normally that would be a long shot but 2 countries got said update as of 2 days ago with it, so it's possible...

    Edit: Seeing that surprise update has confirmed my decision. I don't want the Pixel 2, and I'll rather sell my current one. Since the A3 does get updates here and there, that's doable for me in the meanwhile, even though the app freezing is annoying.

    LG V30 quick update.
    23+ hours off charger.
    58% left in the tank.
    3 hr 9 min SOT

    Battery life is superb so far.
    This is probably a better upgrade compared to the DAC in my opinion.

    Oh and the audio on $8 in ear headphones from Walgreens sounds pretty dang good as well.

    Been listening to music and enjoying Twitter - mainly the Roy Moore debacle tonight.

    Be safe, man.
    Thanks.
    Looks like the fire department put it out quickly and decisively. Only 2 acres and 100% contained.

    It's a PITA. Even though things were coordinated better, it took 18 minutes to exit the campus and 14 to then drive home.

    That's a bummer. I hope that you will be able to bring the stuff in after all.

    Just found out that my top favorite artist is coming back to town in a few months! Even though I saw him earlier this year, I will surely make a way, especially since he is going to be on tour by himself so no 'introductory' singers or people that I'm indifferent about listening to!!

    I really hope that I can go, but it depends on conditions that I can't talk about yet that are also happening that month.

    Yeah it stopped raining long enough for me to get the stuff in and adjust the ladder.

    There are days I really dislike W10 on my PC.

    Aside from the updates for some reason my computer will occasional start up Edge and reset all my defaults including PDF. Irritates me to no end.

    Then there's the issue that's it's slow as hell sometimes. I really don't want to reinstall it again....

    I tried android pay today at my local store. I wanted to see how well it works. I asked the cashier if it works and she said yes. So i took out my phone and turned on nfc and placed. My phone near the card reader. It didn't work :/. Good thing no one was around . Though it kinda sucks that it didn't work.

    There's probably a technique to make it work a little easier. Maybe 99 might know.

    It works flawlessly for me on my Pixel 2.

    Maybe so. I was under the impression that I just put it near the card reader and boom it works.

    So I think I want the Pixel 2 but for the laziest reasons. I'll like to try it (obviously) but also it would be a way to get rid of my original Pixel since there are so many selling elsewhere. I would do the trade-in, wait for it to process and complete and then request a return. I looked into it and you can apparently do that.

    It would be a way to knock out the 2 things in one. Is it sad that the knocking out of two things is a stronger motivator over actually trying it? I'll think on this.
