Whines ahoy

Fair warning I’m in a downer mood. Probably because, well, I go to attend a progress and power metal festival every year in Atlanta and this year I’m not going. And this festival takes place starting this week or next weekend to be precise. It’s starting to hit that I’m not going to go see my friends and I’m not going to hear all All that good music. And I am going to probably be in this bit of a bummer mood all week. Like I said fair warning.

The lack of punctuation, or odd capitalization’s or, odd punctuation, Brought to you by the fact that I am dictating this into my phone as opposed to typing. I have marvel before that this voice recognition technology has improved so much over the last 5 to 10 years, but it’s not perfect and me mumbling or slurring my speech will always be able to defeat the best voice recognition technology. But it’s good to know that it’s going to keep improving. Not least for all the doctors who are not great with computers and suddenly have to Chart in electronic medical records, Like some of The docs I have worked with in the past.

Have proved my point about how not quite there the voice record technician technology is, I felt compelled to go back and correct some of the spelling errors or completely wrong word choice errors this iPhone has introduced into this blog. Sometimes you actually just want to have it reflect what you actually said rather than what some piece of software out of Cupertino California has translated it as.

One other thing bumming me out today, physical issues, like the elbow issue that is starting to recur again, and an ankle that I kind of hurt stepping into a hole after dark during the post Ypsi fest cleanup. I said kind of regarding the ankle because there is a little bit of swelling and it’s been tight for a number of days but it doesn’t really hurt per se, and I played pickle ball three or four times this week with no real issue and I don’t really have an issue with it when I am wearing shoes. So I’m not really sure how big of an issue it is.But it’s a thing.

So you have it , the last day of August, College football is starting in Earnest, And summer is on it’s last legs. Here’s to September, and fall and whatever lies ahead.

    I haven't tried voice technology, but I heard it's pretty good for the most part.
    Go outside & take a walk. Put on your headphones & listen to your music. I know it's not the same thing as being there, but it might soothe your soul.

    I’ve never been to Earnest!

    My sister usually does voice to txt but rarely proofreads before sending, often with hilarious results.
