LOL!!!!!!!

I have terrorist kittens here and I just pray DHS or FEMA doesn't show up. I am bleeding on a regular basis, and you don't want to know what's happening to our guestroom.

Maybe it's time for the kittens to be re-united with their family.

Mine has a very bad habit of trying to replace a simple word with something really obscure that you probably wouldn't ever need to use.

I have deleted some of those types of words from my phone's history. I also purchased an inexpensive app that learns my typing patterns so the prediction improves over time.

I was heading for the bathroom and walked right into the door and almost knocked myself out. As long as there is no obstacle, Rosie goes from carpet to tile (kitchen and bathroom) without any problem. So my whole apartment gets done. You do receive a virtual wall with one. It will stop the robot from going where you don't want it to go. If you have area rugs down, she goes right over them also without a problem.

I call her Rosie after the Jetson's robot maid. I love my Rosie!
My Dyson is a fairly new model (the D50) and it's a lot lighter than the 'Orrible 'Oover upright which required Charles Atlas to push it round and regularly went into sulks and on strike of you asked it to pick up more than dust.

Spellcheck and Autocheck always trip over my last name, they suggest "Ambiguous" and it doesn't even start with an "A". I am a compulsive proofreader, so it's not often something gets by me.

Are you using an iPhone? I have an Android phone and it just learns my typing patterns without an extra app. I vaguely remember being able to delete words from the predictive typing when I had an iPhone. I imagine there is a way to do it with Android phones, but I haven't felt the need yet, so I haven't tried to find out.

No, I have an Android phone. I've been using the app for a few years; it works better than I remember the default app working, but maybe the default has improved. To delete a word, just press and hold on it when it's suggested, then confirm you want to delete it.

Thanks. My phone is a bit over a year old. I think the default app works quite well and even seems context sensitive. I get notifications by SMS from Google Calendar. I don't know if it's Google or my cell provider, but I get an SMS that tells me to reply "read" to get the notification. When I am replying to an SMS, "Read" is the second choice in the auto-suggest list, even before I start typing. Simplifies it for me.

I mentioned to The Pirate about why I named mine Rosie. He informed me that I was fortunate I didn't get one from the Flintstone era. Where would I store a dinosaur? Plus I am not fond of the name Dino!
