We reached Haridwar in the morning. I think the train was late by an hour or so. maybe because of the rains. It was still raining when we got there. We have booked a 12 seater traveler (mini bus) and everybody is asleep. I didn’t eat anything, as I am not sure how my stomach would react to these winding roads, especially after last night’s puking incident. I think Akhilesh has eaten more than he needed as he himself said that two parathas were more than enough. Everybody else on the bus seems fine. I am dosing off, but the winding roads are not letting me. Every half a minute, there is a turn. We met a trekker who informed us that there is too much ice up there and if it continues to rain, we better abandon the trek. He said hand gloves are must. The guy has scared the hell out of us when he told us some story of a guy who slipped. He said he didn’t have a metal stick to save him. And all the time I was thinking, ‘Man. We couldn’t reach the top because the weather suddenly turned from sunny to cloudy, even the guides who were with other groups shouted that we should go back. At one point of time, we weren't able to see the upper part because those clouds surrounded us. We thought if professional people are scared then there is something wrong.
I recall watching a few episodes in fits and starts and possibly even the entirety of one movie, but the title tune creeped me out, and I never quite got round to absorbing it the way a loyal pop culture devotée should have. I got the boxset from my very thoughtful parents two Christmases ago, and I’m determined to join the ranks of believers before the new episodes air. Given there are nine whole seasons of about 22 episodes each, the odds of me being entirely caught up in time are pretty minimal – but I can least learn enough to decide whether the use of “believer” up there counts as a pun. So, without further ado – here commence The Mary Sue’s newbie X-Files recaps. One disclaimer: I’m still a complete wimp in many ways, so if these episodes get too dark for me look forward to their being punctuated with lots of cute animal gifs. A second one: given the sheer volume of episodes, it seems a little too ambitious to do a full recap for each one. First things first: this is a tremendous pilot.
But let’s dispel the idea that ‘iterative’ is a pejorative and dispense with the cliches: if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. With the One M7 and the One M8, it was hard to talk about either device without at least a precursory mention of their... The One M9 is no different, mostly picking up where the One M8 left off while reaching back to the One M7 for refinement. Some will be put off by a sharp edge that replaces the curved design of the One M8 , but we didn’t take much issue with it. In fact, the average consumer would be hard pressed to spot the differences between the One M8 and One M9 in a glance. The power button that has been relocated to the side of the device under the volume rocker. The volume rocker has been separated into two separate buttons, both pretty close in size to the power button. The power button gets a textured finish to make it easier to feel out, but it’s was still easy to find yourself seeking one button and pressing the other. Perhaps it’s the positioning of the button below the volume rocker — we would have preferred it either be placed above or simply on the opposite side of the device. A one-piece metal front houses the One M9’s BoomSound speakers, UltraPixel camera, and 5-inch display.
