I finally got the "Power-ups? No Thanks!" medal for #Minesweeper Adventure. That was hard work! You have to possess at least 10 of each of the powerups. Maps are very infrequent, and I hoard them like mad. :-D

Which means I can now try to attain the "Breaker" and "I Hate Snakes!" medals. (The former requires use of lots of picks. The latter requires use of lots of dynamites, or picks if you're lucky.)

I've completed every daily challenge this month (and every month last year, for that matter), but still no Wins At Your Back achievement? :'( #minesweeper

Wow, +Óscar Andrés López is on fire! I know he's been answering many [scheme] questions on Stack Overflow, but this is something else. :-)

Wow, definitely colder today than I thought! (For Americans reading this, 5°C is about 40°F.)

And no, don't tell me how it's subzero in your area, I'm not interested. ;-)

6:03 NF Expert #minesweeper game, my best record yet! I'm actually playing more slowly than usual, because it's 3:30 am, and I'm really sleepy, so my motor coordination isn't all there. ;-) Still, I decided I'd stick at it until I had a decent NF game in hand. Gogo perseverance!

Here's my fastest no-flags time for the big board so far of 511 seconds. #minesweeper

I've had to make two very lucky guesses in the bottom-left corner; as you can see, that corner is almost completely boxed-in by mines, and there's no way to approach it except from the "3".

This is my fastest "big board" game yet, coming in at just under 200 seconds. :-) One day, with more practice, I might get to +Jessica Hamilton speeds, though, I have to say, if there's one thing in common between #minesweeper and driving, it's that "the faster you go, the bigger the mess".

(My fastest big board game on the Windows 8 Minesweeper is 3:23, so not too far off.)

Haha, yeah, I've hit 0 seconds before with a lucky board: an empty square that completely uncovered the board on first click.

Expert-level Classic game (108 mines). This is as far as I could get without guessing. Is there any further one can go? #minesweeper

(doesn't actually further your quest, but y'know :)

Google Play emailed me to notify that they shipped out my #Nexus5 today. I'm very excited. :-D

(My order was in the earlier batch that "ships by November 8". Bummer for people who missed that boat and had to wait 2 to 3 weeks---but hopefully not for months, as was the case for Nexus 4.)
