So David, would the country selected already have had New Year? (whispers to listeners; do you think this subtle question will fool him?)

Handy, that was another great guess. Happy shopping!
Avatar 12:51pm Really Lisa:

Thank you Handy.
Hi Brian, thanks for asking; been trying, struggling to be honest. But not here to dwell. Better if I step away and just soak up the music for the duration.
Safe, healthy New Year, sincerely.

And it took 4 tries to stop autocorrect from overwriting Cheikh as Christmas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17pm WR:

If I had all the time in the world I would look to see if there is any relation between Annachie and Annikin. For now just wash my lunch bowl and back to work, will be listening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17pm David Dichelle:

Could be a subconscious influence, one never knows...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm coelacanth∅:

how do you get autoincorrect to stop making the same incorrection every time?
in other words: "4 tries" - is that typing the same thing over and over, or doing something different each time?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm coelacanth∅:

never mind, i can kind of imagine what happens.
Avatar 1:30pm northguineahills:

4 tries, I've had more then five (when texting non-English phrases).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm David Dichelle:

Autocorrect can be a trying experience.
Avatar 1:31pm northguineahills:

I got autocarrot once when texting, so, I use it from now on when referencing autocorrect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm chresti:

I wish there was a way to disable autocorrect on my phone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm coelacanth∅:

i feel certain that the amount of time people spend on follow-up messages to explain their previous posts, and the time spent trying to manually override the incorrection outweighs any time theoretically saved by having it engaged.
... and then there's the fact that it encourages ignorance in the spelling department.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm coelacanth∅:

chresti are you sure?
...is it an iphone? (in which case i wont be that surprised)
Avatar 1:37pm northguineahills:

Many Malian bands went to Bamako during the Islamist insurrection (They frowned upon western-influenced music, if they actually approved of music at all)(the Islamic insurrection was in the Sahel/Sahara region of Mali, until the French put it down. There are still pockets of resistence.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm spodiodi:

chresti, if it's an android, maybe trying this: Go to Settings > System > Languages & input > Virtual keyboard. Pick the keyboard. Tap Text correction, and toggle Auto-correction off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm chresti:

The laptop just underlines things that it thinks is not correct, I'll look it up and prove it wrong.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm spodiodi:

iphone: Go to your iPhone’s home screen.

Tap on the Settings icon.

In the menu of options that pops up, tap on General.

On the new screen that you are taken to, open Keyboard Settings.

Find the All Keyboards section.

In this section, find Auto-Correction and toggle the button next to it so that it goes from green to white.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39pm chresti:

Ah, thanks spodi.
Avatar 1:39pm northguineahills:

@spodi: I thought about using espanol on my settings on my iPhone, but, I use other languages as well. (I use mostly Spanglish when texting my partner).

i've got an iphone and an android tablet (though i admit that i've never turned either auto-correct off -- as annoying as it is. anyway, just curious myself, so shared) yw, chresti \\//
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm coelacanth∅:

my laptop does that (chresti @138) i'm fine with that, even though it's wrong not infrequently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm spodiodi:

ah computer... i wont bother posting, but i think win10 and macos should both have the same disable-type capability/option
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm David Dichelle:

NGH: Some keyboard apps allow for multiple languages, if that helps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm chresti:

The iphone has the little bubble with the x, which works fine if I have my glasses on and am not in a hurry.
Avatar 1:43pm northguineahills:

(and as everyone here knows, cthulhlu knows what language I use w/ my friends. I had a friend text me back, "use English!". I replied, "It's not my fault you're not multilingual". (most friends are cool, especially w/ espanol o aleman...)

*silver lining* at least I don't have to call/interact w/ the cops.... (went to go get ice at 1am last night, and saw four in tactical gear). At least, the manager likes me. I speak to him en espanol, and he gave me 60% off (from the guy in front of me), I did so the people behind me in line wouldn't understand I was getting a deal.

Handy, I’m out at the ancestral village for NYE and so off the comments board so as not to overstrain the rather temperamental WiFi. How are you mate?

Have we not done random road then? I’m in for Pakistan!

I had a feeling, David! Hope it's green and peaceful.

All good here. We secured some dinner groceries, bubbly, the dog's ear medicine and all is well as it can be. Check out efd's year-end show in the archives if you get the chance. It was a scorcher!

I am twelve days older than Niue's self-governance. It was fated to be.
Avatar 2:08pm northguineahills:

When I was 14, I did a WC w/ every country and territory. I would throw a ball on the second story, and it would hit the first story and I would either volley, head, or bicycle kick the ball into the goal. Short story long, the final was Niue vs the USA. Niue won! (I had a notebook of the brackets I made).

Niue, Handy, man that’s a rare bullseye and no mistake!
It wasn’t Gib then?

David, one of my friends in Edinburgh has a coffee mug with a picture of the queen on it and the legend "I EAT SWANS."

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:40pm Handy Haversack:

Jeffrey Jeffrey's cover of "New York, New York" would probably be excellent too!

My Charles and Di mug is particularly naff. Plus if dropped (we had another) it explodes into a million pieces of some seriously dodgy glass like material.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:41pm David Dichelle:
