T-mobile G1 (v2)

So anyway the UPS man came and i get to start over with a new G1. This one seems fine, i’m still conditioning the battery, but power seems to run down very fast, just from listening to music for 1-1.5 hours and minimal screen use. 

Here’s an unboxing for good luck. 🙂

“Easyjet has broken ranks with the remainder of the airline industry and supported the Government’s proposals to replace Airport Passenger Duty with a per flight charge. The current system is levied on individual passengers and flight distance. The new system will be levied per flight and will be based on take-off weight.”

[worldtravelexp] Accommodations and Car Rental in Spain

> We are also hoping to find a reasonable price for an economy rental car for three weeks.

For car hire you could try getting quotes from these consolidators.

they all resell the same cars. (Spain tends to run on the bring it back empty con, they make you buy a tank of gas when you pick the car up, you can’t get out of this)

Check that they include excess insurance (this might be $2-4 a day more) some include it others insure you and you have to pay for damage and claim the excess back from consolidator.

I’d also ask for a diesel, you’ll get twice the mpg and gas is expensive over here compared to the USA, about $6-8 a gallon (~$2/L), they have good engines and are as quiet as a normal petrol/gas car and you get lots of power from the turbo for overtaking.

Remembrance Day – Poppy Day

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.
