Had lovely little 55 mile ride out on my bike this morning. Until the rain came and was a little too heavy for my kevlar jeans to cope with so I headed home.  
Nearly time for it's first service so I'll need to get it booked in. However it looks like the weather is set to continue being horrible for the next week or so :-(

Graffiti banter and getting your way.  
A graffiti artist's year-long battle with a local council has been recorded in a brilliant photo series.

Thanks for the link!

Funny abandoned TV on the pavement at the end.  What happened? What was the thought process of someone who left it there? Bizarre.

So my #Nexus got #LollipopUpdate last night. I installed it and have been having a quick play around with it.

Overall, it looks nice. The buttons at the bottom remind me of a PlayStation controller and the settings menu and keyboard as went all slick and Apple-y.

I am quite liking the idea of the new sound priorities, I'll test it out during the day.

As for notifications on the lock screen. I am rather confused about them. You can show none, show all, or hide sensitive data.
None actually means none. Not even an icon up the top. So looking at your lock screen, you would have no idea if there was anything new.
Show all is not something I like. I don't want anyone who finds my phone to be reading emails etc.
Hide sensitive sounds like a great idea. Except it seems to hide everything, even twitter and G+ updates.
Personally I would like to choose what apps can appear on the lock screen. So say show all twitter and G+ updates but only show icons for Gmail and hangouts.

You can also change the volume from the lock screen. Which is a complete pain for me since I have a habit of accidentally pressing the volume button when it is in my pocket. Need to find a way to stop this.

Also from the lock screen you can turn WiFi and Bluetooth off, and turn on the flash light. I'm not sure about this either... I'd rather have to unlock my phone to do these things

What are other people thinking about the update?
Anyone know how to cure my issues with it yet? I'd rather not have to download apps to cure it.

I think they got a lot right with Lollipop but dropped the ball in a number of areas. The notifications on the lock screen is one. The volume settings is the other. This priority setting is a complete pain in the ass. I can either be disturbed by people who are starred whenever, or turn all notifications off, including alarms?! Who felt that was a good idea.

Good idea to always check your documentation for accuracy.

Well, this is my wee beastie.. Currently not really doing any modifications to it as I am going to be sitting my full bike test first. Hopefully towards the end of the year or the beginning of next year.

And this is why I no longer do "homers" for people. It's just too much hassle to get through to a lot of people that not all is simple in the world of IT support.

"Wanting to be someone else it is a waste of the person you are"
Introduction
I like strong tea, gaming, opening things up to see how they work and people watching. 

Sailing and taking photos is also fun.

I tend not to pigeon hole things so I am open to all sort of music and films, although I can be squeamish at times so horror movies are not my favorite!  

I love going to gigs, be they  music, comedy or theater. 

Although I work in IT I genuinely have no preference  between Mac OSX and Windows. I like them both. And when the Raspberry Pi comes out I'll be using Linux regularly for the first time in years! 

In case you have not gathered this yet, I sit on the metaphorical fence quite a bit. Mostly because I like to know about everything :-) 

Note: If you circle me and want circled back, please type something meaning full in your intro.


Ingress - Resistance! 

A few things that interest me. 
Rock n' Roll, Heavy Metal, Anime, Manga, Japan, Tim Minchin, Technology News, Photography, Science, Religion, Comedy, Old Stories, People, How technology is 'Evolving', Books (mostly fantasy), Things that are a little bit different...
