Honoring A Bug, One Of Many Unhonored:
My phone turned some word, which I have now forgotten, into "dancing." I
can't see well, didn't see it, and hit send. I think the word was likely
"panicing" , and it is again turned into "dancing" when I type it.
It's 08:16 A, new york time. I'm trying to disable autocorrect on my
phone. I want to learn to use it properly, but I want to send people the
right words more. Visiting Settings.
It's 08:18A, and after getting lost and confused amidst the selection tree
of my phone's settings, I eventually disabled google voice input (which I
kept accidentally triggering), and google autofill. Let's try typing that
word: dancing. It changed it to dancing again. Time to disable
It's 08:20 and I've disabled my phone's spellchecker. Despite being top of
my classes in school after a childhood of reading, I now have trouble
remembering the spellings of words, but I feel more relaxed that red
underlines are still appearing in my gmail. Let's try that word: dancing.
It still changed.
I'll try closing gmail and reopening this email from a draft. I'll reboot
my phone, too. It's 08:22A.
08:25 after a 3 minute reboot. Dancing! . It still mutates it. I guess
it's a feature of blackberry keyboard? This phone does not have a public
root tool, purportedly because it is hard to hack. The toggle button for
its oem keyboard is greyed out in the settings. I spent a minute or so
removing garbage letters from this paragraph.
08:28 and I'm looking for more settings.
08:29 and I disabled "keyboard gestures" but suggestions are still popping
up: dancing. Nope. Guess I get to download an alternative keyboard app!
08:31. I'm trying to download an app called "codeboard keyboard" but I'm
worried it is a virtual keyboard when I have a physical keyboard on this
phone. Maybe I can long press on the suggestion interface to find
settings? Nope. I'll searx for the setting. 0832.
0834. I found the settings for the keyboard in my phone. My behavior
habits were specifically avoiding what I was looking for, as is common for
0835 arright, and I turned spell check back on: panicing !!!!
Now this log gets to see more of my body's typing quirks and fewer of my
I have bloated and spammed this thread, and not addressed this. I meant
"panicing" , not "dancing" .
