Is there a mobile phone topic? I got as a present a Huawei p40 Lite, which looks pretty cool phone, but it comes without Google Services.
I could live with it, but the Huawei apps gallery seems pretty dead, most known browsers are still under development, I don't believe they will come ever alive. So no games, no YouTube app, no browser except for opera and a Huawei explorer style. Also no games obviously, at least the most popular mobile apps, no messenger, only Facebook Lite.
If I do not do some from the various workarounds I watched in the net, about how to install Google Mobile Services, it seemed that the phone can mostly/only used as a camera-mobile.

Anyone else with a Huawei with similar case? Any ideas?

I was speaking on the phone today. My phone sensor has issues lately and does not switch off the touch screen. So with my cheek i opened accidentally notepad and typed this message below, so noticed it only after I ended the dial.


" I am 337593 337593 and I am not 337593 with this as I am not alone with you in 337593 333333332"

I believe someone sent me a cryptic message from another dimension, those must be his time-space coordinates.

Update: Screenshot added. :)

Found this site yesterday, while watching a youtube video. Although for evo-web has zero value, cause the forum does not erase records of older posts, but it is nice to find older forums that went down.

link: Wayback Machine

I found the home page of pesinsight for example, i am in a blast from the past by now :)

More on this, i found my birthday mention back from July 2005, i was fekin 19 years old back then!!!!!

Nice one. I checked out PESFan. Can't find any traces of my activity but seeing some of the user names takes me back. Bittersweet emotions, life was so much simpler back then...

Yeah i tried pesfan too, but I can't get further than the titles page. I assume it has to do with other factors such as the engine used, the depth of monitoring, etc.

But it is very nostalgic, it is like a time machine.

When I was in high school, I asked the professor in Biology class, what's the fundamental difference between a living organism and a dead one, in a cellular level. And if we can bring back to function a dead cell, tissue, organism, if we know and fix the core mechanic.
His answer was that we were too young and inexperienced to try to explain, but told us that there is a core mechanic, that works like an ignition, a "spark" that makes things alive. Didn't tell me if we can go backwards, from dead status to alive status, at least in cells. But did not tell me also, that it is impossible.

And I assume what he wanted to say, but didn't cause we were still in school, was about Telomere and Telomerase.

Two years later, in University, I asked the Biology Professor, this time about why we don't do reverse engineering in the proteins in the same ways we do in our cars. When the cooling does not work we fix the cooling, and generally when we identify the part of the engine that does not work, we fix that part. Since we have all the shite needed, like microscopes, nanotechnology, biology and biochemistry engineering, etc, why we don't put the freaking amino acids, in the correct order and shape. To fix a bad cell, or create an antibody/antigen or help immunity. Of course in living cells/organisms it does not work like engines, electronics, it has many limitations, etc.
The professor in university was even worse than the highschool prof, He didn't even bother to answer to me, he looked me with a strange glance, and said "we go on". What he possibly wanted to say was "dude ef-off and make your own academic lecture if you wanna make some crazy theory philosophical assumptions".

Well 19 &17 years respectively after my questions, almost having forgotten about biology fundamentals, Mitochondria, Telomeres, telophase, amino acids, proteins, etc, I was very happy today reading this in news.

Seems like Google may answer a lot of my old questions, in the near future.

Googled definition of "fitba" on urbandictionary, after readind it by @Flipper the Priest .

1st result and i found the answer:

Urbandictionary #1

"football-Scottish slang "

2nd result found a description, that in different circumstances, i would swear was written by my mother, as it is exactly the description she used to say about football, when me and my father were watching football at home.

Urbandictionary #2:

1. (m) the beautiful game

2. (f) the stupid game involving 22 grown men (and 3 officials of dubious parentage and eyesight) kicking around a lump of leather around a field, often sparking irrational behaviour, bad language and blind devotion to a team or player, to the detriment of normal marital relations.


MY MOTHER'S definition: "Oh not again! You will watch those 22 idiots , chasing behind a ball"!!! ( i suppose she thinks, it is always the same 22 people!) :)

Reminds me of a time as a young kid during a European Cup night, me and my brother were avoiding the scores and commentary on the radio (long before internet days) so as we could watch the highlights later on tv without knowing the score, especially as staying up late to watch it was the highlight of my week. Come 9pm or so she's watching the news in another room and then comes in to us to say does it go to extra time if it's a draw! Thanks a lot mum!!!

My stepmum used to give it the whole "it's only a game... 22 men kicking a bit of leather about" and my dad and I would get her told. All these years later - when I see the attention-seekers on fan media, and nerds drool over expected assists - I find myself agreeing with her!

This is actually a great way to watch football. I did it not long ago. I was out and couldn't watch a game so I thought I'd ignore my phone - and the game - completely until the highlights were shown later.


I absolutely lost it at the second goal (7:15), sitting in bed. Girlfriend was furious. Also makes me so sad seeing that, and crowds. I do miss being at the match.

She had every right to be pissed off to be fair. Think it was about 11pm and I had earphones in so was silent otherwise. I went from 0-60 with one swing of Connor McLennan's leg.

She's an Aberdeen fan by osmosis. If she were to come clean as one of them after all these years she might get the old "it's not me, it's you."
