Isn't "STOP" supposed to mean "STOP" ?

 

Grrr....

 

 

Perhaps it'll stop on 2 November 2020 since that's supposedly when you sent the message :P

Senecio: People who rush into a lift as soon as the door opens and don’t allow the occupants to leave first.

 

Same with bus and train

 

 

Add revolving doors to that list.

Har-har.

 

I need to have my phone set for US English to fix other Google Bugs around WearOS and voice recognition.  (And I hadn't noticed my SMS app dates are US-ified; maybe that's customizable, but I'm not going to bet on it!)

 

In short, a "recent" update broke the ability to talk to my watch to do things like initiate an SMS, unless phone set for US English.  A fix is allegedly coming, but it's been a over month now since they said that...

 

(Factory reset the watch and it works fine until the "Google" app updates; then nada).

 

I guess that's another annoyance - the lack of understanding in the USA about what the first TWO "w"s in "www" actually mean...

That the Alibaba unsubscribe button does not unsubscribe, but instead takes you to their Chinese language home page, where you have to log in first, if you can figure out how to do that.

I've gotta go to the supermarket today - we're getting low on bog paper.

 

I hope I don't run into anybody I know - they'll think I'm one of "them".

Our Neighbours have recently installed a basketball hoop and play it non-stop (8pm and still going currently...). I like that its something that they do as a family and its outdoor and active but the sound of the balls bouncing is at a frequency that its like a non-stop kick drum that goes right through you.

That's why there should be a global ban on street basketball. 

 

That and the gratuitous use of singlets.

Handsome Dan is currently WFH.

 

Handsome Dan is perplexed...and a little stir crazy.

 

Handsome Dan is well and truly over Home Detention...
