Windows 10. Phone issues.

I have the misfortune of having to work with Windows 10 at the office now.

It looks neat I gotta say, but what is it like working with it?

Like you’re driving a horse drawn, silk saddled carriage that has the break constantly drawn, through a stoney desert.

It looks good, but boy is it a shitty and bumpy ride.

In other news, my Asus Zenfone Max Z010d hit the bucket. First the wifi wouldn’t connect. Ever. Then it was stuck in a bootloop.

Several attempts of lay (and lame) hacking/flashing it later, I got it briefly up to running again. I had to finish my setup. Language selection, okay. Keyboard layout, okay. Do you want to use SIM and Wifi, or just Wifi? Obviously, both.

Reboot into the bootloop.

It won’t let me replace the bootloader, or the operating system. So far. I will either completely brick it, or crack it like an egg:

Here it is held at gunpoint.

So. Technical issues aside, everything’s peachy. Gotta go now, today’s my kid’s birthday.

Take care, A.

PS, yes, last week’s app idea was inspired by the expanse. 😉

What’s so special?

There is something I don’t get about the currently most fought over countries and territories on earth.

ISIS want’s to errect a califate in IRaq and Syria. Mostly consisting of DESERT.
BokoHaram wan’t an islamic state in Nigeria. Mostly consisting of DESERT.Isreal and the west bank – mostly DESERT!
Crusaders wanted the same territory currently being Israel – DESERT AGAIN!

I’m sorry to say this, christians, muslims and jews – you’re all NUTS! What do you want in the god damn desert? If I were to call a strip of land holy, it’d be a place filled with lush forests, rivers, mountains with glaciers on it, herds of boars, orchards that need little to no irrigation, etc. A litteral PARADISE! That would be my holy land, you nutjobs can keep your deserts.

What is there in the desert?
Loneliness?
You can get that in a lush forest or a mountaintop. For the love your gods and mother nature – fight over/for a REAL place to live! NOT THE GOD DAMN DESERT!

You wonder why some people view you religious people as totally insane lunatics? BECAUSE YOU FIGHT OVER SAND! Not for water, food, live giving resources, BUT SAND!
God is all nice and if you want to die for your belief, okay, but NOT TO LIVE IN THE DAMN DESERT!

So, unless you realise that the desert is no place to live (ever wonder why they go through regime’s in the middle east faster than through a pack of tictacs? DESERT!), your endeavours are doomed.
