There was some talk about agile development during the MinasiCon via zoom last month.

Recently, some sort of @!#ing update changed the way my fave Android app worked, and I had a low priority mental note to look into it/fix it/something.

I have an app called Speaking Alarm Clock
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=wan.pclock

and what I use it for is for reminders that use TTS (which I can customize) or even record my own voice.

When I work on site, I have it announce "it's [time].  log what you just did." about every 40 minutes.  This way, I don't get so far into my work that I can't make some notes because I forgot all the stuff I've done.

The app used to say: "it's three ten PM.  log what you just did."
All of a sudden, it started saying "it's three colon ten PM.  log what you just did."

It started doing this before the Minasi-a-zoom, but after we joked about it, I became HYPER AWARE (OMG!!  ARGH!! shoot me!!) of the difference, and it was making me NUTS!!!!

Anyhoo, I just "fixed" it.  Seems that Teh Googul's TTS engine got an update and I had to turn off the "new" way numbers are spoken.  <shoot me>


OMG.  I just heard it, and IT WORKED CORRECTLY!!  YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYYAYAYAYAY!!![rofl]


My life.  One agile update dilemma after another.

[crazy]
