    5 days for sure, probably more like 8 or so when I caught it....

    Yeah I'll have to investigate, but the problem was it was a pharmacy that did the test but they are not doctors so I dunno how that letter would work.

    this positive for long time is what is worrying me. US still requires negative test or covid recovery to get in. I'm fine, but still testing positive, and Swiss won't give me a covid recovery letter as I'm not a resident. so kinda trapped here indefinitely....

    I'm always amazed at people still using those. a) they were shit and b) they are ancient lol

    But if you are just gliding around (ie: not a lot of stress on the boot), I'm sure they will last a lot longer

    nope but the plastic gets worn out (and the insides). Esp if you don't keep them right (like buckled up and so on). Constant pressure from skiing but also hot/cold transfers weakens the outer shell after a while

    boots... I guess it depends how much you ski. I wore a pair a bit too long, and they actually sheered mid turn at the ankle. Top separated from the bottom. Been skiing a long time so wasn't a problem but yeah do keep checking them and don't assume they will last forever!

    My rule of thumb is new boots roughly every 90->120 days of skiing new boot time. For me that's normally every 3 years (but not recently due to covid)

    so that at least they have improved with cloud play... a lot of the games you can stream straight away to decide if you like them or not

    I've played a few things on Game Pass but so far nothing really held my interest. Still for the price it's worth it. I do worry though at the rate everyone is doing subscription services (esp. here in the US) I'll end up at ~200 a month on them
