@Koni and Pol: Please see the Sighisoara thread. The project is not cancelled (as Koni already knows ;) )

I was feeling deeply frustrated as I wrote the previous message in this page. But I managed to overcome the crappy mood and calmly proceeded to write new stories and add that new material into the campaign. Yay for me.

I have a problem with my newly-purchased car; the ESP System seems to be malfunctioning. Took it to a local shop a week ago and got a quote for the repairs.

$1600. 8|

Riiiight, I thought - that's not gonna happen, seeing as I only bought it 6 months ago. So today, I took it the the seller, and claimed they mend it in accordance with the rights offered to me in the Norwegian consumer purchase law. They said they "really couldn't afford to do that kind of thing". :disagree: So, now I've had to write an official demand that they take responsibility and mend the problem ... urgh ... :|

Well, at least they've lost any chance of my accepting a deal where we share the expenses. I'm on the warpath now. You don't reject Kalah's demands when he knows he's got the law on his side. :gun:

Well the french do seem to like "la petite mort" just fine... and so do most non-puritans.

Also, actual death went out of style once everyone started doing it...

I'd suggest waiting for low cost dual core phones before you get a new smartphone... though that NEO does look nice.

I have Vivaz now and what really get me is, that it's a dead end for SE Symbian phones. Its price already dropped drastically (virtually to a third), firmware get crippled, own SE suite still doesn't support it completely and most of function 'being considered' are simply being removed.

Still it's a very good phone.

  • + sleek design, video recording (slow start though, even more for taking just a snapshot), usable audio, fast - for symbian phones, somewhat simple and straightforward organisation. For a smartphone last long on a batery, 2-5days.
  • - required me to buy QuickOffice, pdfreader, Xplore, Photo Viewer & LCG Jukebox. No need to mention class 6 micro sdhc card. No usable RDP due to screen resolution and no calls recording possible due to SE fw restriction. Heating your ear when you're calling, you can't see from whom is received sms message and it's not having usable quick or last contacts (like every stupid se phone).
    Also in noisy environment you need to switch output to internal loudspeaker, which is almost everytime. (Note: Majority of stupied SE phones was very silent in calls, which was a feature to protect your ears. Sadly until you stayed in echoic chamber it wasn't possible to hear anything. Imagine tram in background and you're heard but do not hear.) Some media content indexing bugs and some others with handling the calls and I'm finally done.

Afaik Xperia Neo is solving some of these issues but I will be waiting, year or more, to really judge it. My trust to SE diminshed more than a little and I'm close to being pissed. (As previous owner of T68i and W890i)

!--------------------------------------------------------------!
And yes, for all owners of Sony Playstation who purchased anything in their shop (game likely), be so kind block it asap, all data from Sony PS shop get stolen.
Even my bank put an official warning, it happened a month ago (Of course, why to inform public in that time, why not to wait. Typical strategy.) all credit card's data, including security codes from transaction histories, were compromised!

My knee is acting up again ... if it's not the one thing preventing me from having an active ref's career, it's the other ... :grumpy:

I hope it's just a grumbling pain and nothing serious; if I have to withdraw from another season, I'm quitting altogether. Five seasons ruined by injuries is more than enough.
