    @thedoctor And that’s where it gets finicky: if your finger doesn’t move at all, you can press once, it scans, and then opens the phone without having to press a second time. Mostly. Sometimes. If you’re absolutely still.

      @thedoctor …which is pretty much the opposite ease of use that’s beneficial for alarms (in the morning I used to have to scan my finger in order to turn off an alarm, now it’s harder to turn off only if I’m awake and using my phone. Lol).

        @thedoctor Alarm notification are easier to stop when on the lock screen now - there’s a small “stop” button at the bottom. But they’re much harder when using the phone - you have to pull down to open the notification before getting “snooze” and “stop”…

          @thedoctor I thought the new lock screen procedure (unlocking but not opening by default so you can read notifications) might fit my use case somewhat. Nope. Huge pain. Trying to open the phone is finicky now. Unreliable and takes longer to perform.

            @thedoctor I did last week, it’s been…ok. No major crashes/bugs that I’ve noticed, plenty of disappointingly bizarre UI changes. Lol.

              It's Whiskey Wednesday, but I'm drinking Rum and Coke…hope that's ok with everyone.

                Yesterday Pokémon Go players flooded the streets of Royal Oak…today takes it to a whole new level: Bachelor auditions are being held across the street from my office. It’s a veritable parade of desperation! #officewindow

                  I failed to account for high winds when putting on a kilt this morning…walking to lunch was a bit more of a revealing experience than anticipated. (Don’t worry, I don’t go “full barbarian,” but still…)

                    Go home, Sunset, your lighting rig is broken. Did you uncheck shadows on one of your volume containers by mistake? Image [photos.app.net]

                      @mandyd Yeah…I mean, from my perspective kinda funny. From the employees perspective, maybe not so much. I made sure to clarify to HR that my experience with them had been limited to last year, so things might have improved.

                        That awkward moment when HR asks for feedback on a coworker so terrible at their job, you thought they'd already been fired.

                          @thedoctor Nice! I think I’d be ok with a bit chilly. It’s blazing hot down here in Royal Oak.

                            @jmreekes Indeed! I’ve lived in the Detroit Metro area for nearly a decade now, and have visited northern Michigan far too little.

                                If I'm going to continue working on VR projects, I need cosmetic surgery. The overwhelming physical pain of a large nose is very real here.

                                      Success! [files.app.net] Took last night's code and added hexagonal patterning, sub-element detail, antialiasing, and rotation. Whew. Pleasantly surprised I got any of it working.
