< wonders if ^ sent their cat to walk on the keyboard of <'s phone while < wasn't looking. :lol:

On a serious note, <'s new phone has been really hard to type with as of now, and < still has it on the Swedish keyboard layout and sometimes it doesn't seems to correct the words.

< thinks one way to do so might be to use an English keyboard layout instead of having the Swedish one (with 3 extra buttons). < uses it though for the sake of keeping it universal for if < gets better at Swedish and wants to use it a little etc.

Speaking of maintenance, it's around that time again for <'s car to go through an inspection. <'s dad changed the windshield wipers yesterday so the dealers won't try to press that on < later.

< hopes everything goes well with the checkup. < is sure they're really fussy when it comes to these checkups.

< wonders if this is one of those legally obligated check-ups, < has a fair amount of experience at this point with MOTs here.

< is wondering what ^ and ^^ mean about legally obligated check-ups. :?

< has also slept in today, and < feels tired. Though < is waiting for the RetroTINK 4k to go live on sales. < will be likely VC'ing on Discord with <'s good friend while waiting for that.

< isn't sure about whether < wants to go or not with <'s family to see Christmas lights, due to said tiredness, but < probably should go.

Put simply, there's a minimum level of capability a vehicle must have to be road legal, if they're below that level it's illegal to drive them on public roads, unless you're taking them to be fixed for an MOT.

The MOT is effectively an annual assessment, thru which < and other UK drivers have their cars certified as road legal. < believes brand new cars are exempt from an annual assessment for about 3 years, after which it's mandatory to do it every year. < Recommends the Gov.Uk website to learn more: https://www.gov.uk/getting-an-mot

Ah yes, < didn't realize it was still on the topic of vehicles, since < was starting to think it was medical checkups. :lol:

Yeah, older vehicles are generally required for inspections around here too.

< says the Irish equivalent is the NCT (National Car Test), which must be done once the car is over four years old, first every two years, then later every year. But vehicles registered before 1970 are exempt since they're basically just for vintage rallies at that point :hap:

< also knows the French equivalent is the Contrôle Technique, which is also what Clark is subjected to in Tomb of the Ancients, playing on the alternative meaning of the word "contrôle". Quite possibly the only pun in Rayman 2 that didn't translate very well :hap:

< definitely recalls hearing NCT all right. < finds it a bit awkward now though, since if < does learn to drive, both Sweden and Ireland drive on the opposite sides of the road. :confus:

< is curious to ask ^ if people from Sweden or Ireland drive on the same side of the road as the US (which is the right side of the road).

< Was able to secure the RetroTINK 4k, but holy crap the website was hit hard with issues with so many people trying to get it. The demand was crazy high.

< had to take something for <'s headache < had earlier, but once < got rid of that it was easier to play a game called Lethal Company with friends.

< found this map if ^ was curious. You can probably work out the meaning. If not, it colour codes which side you drive on

< knows a lot of Japanese cars get imported here because we drive on the same side. But then they get stolen because they're not fitted with immobilizers :mefiant:

Weird, < thought immobilisers were standard in cars now, <'s pretty sure the Japanese cars here would have immobilisers. Unless they're at a different spec getting it from Japan and they don't do that there?
