    I'm just kind of bummed out that my 4K TV no longer plays 4K HDR Blurays with my Xbone S, I really hope a future update fixes it, but I'm gonna try an inexpensive solution and buy a 2.0 HDMI cable and see if that fixes things.

    I'm about to go catch the bus to the airport to return from the vacation and suddenly, for whatever reason, I'm incredibly nervous. :-|

    Anyway, I hope that I don't miss the flight, that the bags weight no more than they should and that the bottles don't break.

    We (me and my room mates) cleaned our fridge today, so it is sparkling. :)

    I'm thinking of moving out to a place of my own because my landlord has started complaining about the Bose soundbar I bought vibrating the floor when we're trying to watch a movie or when I'm gaming so I'm beginning to think it's about time I bought my own house.

    But then that would mean getting my own car, on top of the fact that I might be lonely, I've already gotten used to living with people (all of my room mates are friends of mine). Decisions, decisions.

    There are several courses of action for you:

    - you can move into a flat, so there are other people around (your own age maybe?) and loneliness won't be a problem.
    - catch the bus / train / tram / walk (play pokemon at the same time :p )
    - turn the volume down

    Nice! As a kid I used to go to Tessin (Ticino) on holiday (southern Switzerland) near Lago Maggiore and everyone speaks Italian, so I picked up some words here and there. Not enough to actually talk to anyone mind you!
    But I'm learning it online on Duolingo.com. Free website where they teach you the language in little chunks and it covers everything from hearing, speaking, reading and writing. Pretty good!
    But as with all languages, the only way is repetition and actually using it in the real world!

    @Neshi One program I would recommend for learning languages is Rosetta Stone. That program just works. Although it is a little expensive. I tried to learn Japanese and was surprised at how much I learned in just a week and a half, although like you say you have to use the language. That and you have to commit to it, no commitment, no learning. I obviously wasn't as committed as I should have been and so gave up eventually.

    As for the music thing I just turned the volume down, it can go up plenty without being too loud for us to be able to hear what is being said in a movie or for me to enjoy the sound in a game. Otherwise I use headphones, but I don't like turning my headset up too high or using them all the time because I value my hearing.

    cheers for the suggestion, but I'm not going to pay for it if it can be free. Money can only be spend once after all

    An office mate got fired while I was on vacation. I think it's he is the first in the history of the firm. He is prone to screwing up, but... nobody saw it coming. I'll call to check up on him, he's a good guy.
