Sat. Oct. 6, 2018 – no rest for the wicked

74F and just slightly less than saturated. Yesterday was nice everywhere I went. There were some clouds and a light quick smattering of rain in a couple of places but I managed to avoid all the downpours.

Today we have a soccer game. Not many practices were actually held due to rain and availability of the coach, so it should be interesting to see what the girls do.

Completely unrelated, just when I started actually using google assistant on my phone regularly (google, navigate to 123 Main St, Anytown, TX) they changed something. Now the stupid thing always wants to send me via public transit, and of course fails to find a route most of the time. That command USED to search the address and open the nav app, and START navigation, all at once. It was great for use while driving. Something broke dangit.

If it’s useful and working, DON’T FIX IT.

Another example is the swype keyboard replacement. It used to be uncannily accurate. Now it gets almost every word wrong, and in really stupid, low frequency word choice, ways. I find it much easier and more accurate to use the dragon Speech to Text input method. Other than a lack of punctuation, it is about 99% accurate.

Tell me what you did to prep this week….
