    Ah, I was curious which ones might have had you there.
    It's the usual suspects.

    True, you're right. To be fair, I was honest about my lack of experience in the Google form the instructor sent last week so I'm hoping he will remember that.
    You may surprise yourself and hold your own just fine. It's another building block experience.

    It's the 9 Pureview and the XZ3 that have my eyes. We will see as nothing is remotely immediate.
    Wonder how's performance of the 9PV after the latest updates? Esp the speed of the fingerprint scanner. I don't expect a big speedbump for the camera postprocessing.

    I am prepping for the busy day tomorrow and busy weekend as well. I have everything I need nearly ready to go. My computer needs to finish charging and my phone needs to be put on the charger at some point (tonight or tomorrow morning) but I do have a power bank, which is charged up.

    I'm excited but also a little nervous about possibly being the only novice in the room with the least amount of experience.
    Everyone had to start somewhere.
    Keep your chin up. Stay positive.
    You'll do just fine.

    Good question. I hope it's now semi useless, instead of the totally useless that was being initially reported.

    Mishaps at the farm!!
    Lost my pair of prescription glasses several days back and couldn't find it no matter how many times I retraced my path.
    Perseverance paid off as I managed to spot it laying at the dirt path through peripheral vision. Unfortunately it was not a joyful find. My brother inlaw had clear the dirt path of overgrown weeds using a grass cutter.. It made mincemeat out of my glasses. There was only a several bits of the frame and glass fragments left..
    I've resorted to using pair of cheap of the shelvea reading glasses bought from Daiso (Japanese thrift shop). As a temporary measure.

    It's gonna take at least two-three week to get proper pair from the optician.
    Bummer! I had to wait 3 weeks to get new spectacles that arrived last Friday. Thankfully, they fit great and I can see much better.

    I hope it won't be expensive for you to get new ones.

    I should be more excited for Friday than I am. Guess I'm too tired. Hopefully when I set up the all in one today, that will take care of that issue.

    I'll see how the new headphones play out. Kinda tired of getting headphones, really. I do plan to get those sennheisers for home listening and let the gf use the Sony's.

    Mine are no line progressives. Surprisingly I had no trouble adapting to them.

    So the session worked out okay. It seemed like everyone learned something today but I did know most of what was taught for a program (we did a crash course for several). This was the shortest day and it was nice to run into classmates there!

    Asuch as the new phone itch is in place, I'm glad I'm not rushing to try to grab anything. I was fortunate to get a Mate 20 Pro at a fair price, pre Trump, so I'm OK with waiting. Especially since I'm hearing crap that the XZ3 Asian variant isn't giving me the same bands as I'm used to. WTF Sony? I hope that ain't true.

    I would be very open to a dual SIM 9 Pureview, though. That's pretty rare. I'm just not paying for it the price my favorite site is currently asking for it.

    I like the new wireless headphones. The sound signature is very good. The fit is decent and I prefer on ear to let in ambient sound.

    Here are the issues:

    1) you have to take the hooks off to fit them in the charging case. This will wear the hooks out and add another level of inconvenience for use as they are gonna slide out my ears.

    2) the white is glossy as F. Really wish I'd gotten the black with the blue trim.

    If I wanted the best fit, I would have gotten the E12, which has the in ear style. The reason why I didn't get that one is that its sound signature is for that model is more bass heavy. Since I listen to all sorts of stuff, I preferred to have a more versatile sound signature at the expense of a better fit.

    We'll see how this goes. It's just as loud on the Mate 20 Pro as it is on the V35. I would be curious to pair this with a XZ3 for that more granular type control and better codec support.

    The ear hooks do make a different for fit. It just sucks I have to use them. The volume though is right where I need it to be though. It reminds of the first time I used the DAC in the V20 - my ears took notice.

    We will see how they work for a whole week, but I'm impressed so far. I also didn't want the E12 because I still have my Jam Ultras, which are quite bass heavy (but don't sound as clean) and in ear.

    It's a solid addition that will get some usage for sure.
