Pin yes but you have to fail faceid first and some apps don’t let you use it.
I thought you could turn off faceID and turn on just the pin?
Yeah but who thinks to do that before you go get groceries
My phone has started recognizing me even with a mask on. Apparently if you type your PIN correctly enough times it learns.
There is also a way to “train” it to read your face with a mask but I haven’t tried it.
I tried to add an alternate appearance and it told me to take my mask off.
It probably doesn’t help in my case that D and C1 pick up my phone all the time though.
Thank you guys! I've ordered biscotti, some italian cookie things, and via. @Honey those look really good but I can't have nuts in the house, I'll definitely pass that recipe off if any coworkers offer to add something though!
I want to add something savory so I think I'm going to make cheese crisps.
J’s dad called him to complain about his phone service charging him too much. Said he had no idea why his bill skyrocketed and tried to blame J’s brother who is on the same plan. Turns out dear old dad been on his phone all day for four months with WiFi turned off.
We're doing a remote training session for work. A lady just quickly muted while she was talking and when she unmuted she says "sorry, my son just barged in because his chinchilla just had babies and he doesn't know what to do. The guy leading the training goes "well, congratulations I guess" and kept on with the training.
When I start back at work, I'm thinking I'm going to need a pair of clothes for my commute (public transit womp womp) and a pair of clothes to change into while I'm at work so commuting germs don't go to the classroom, and work germs dont come home. Is that overkill? The thought of having to wash two sets of clothes per day when we don't have our own washer and dryer seems like a lot, but I'm not sure that there are really any other options.
I think it is overkill. I would just strip and put your clothes in a bag as soon as you walk in the door at home. Then shower.
I would also probably use a plastic purse that you can wipe down easily.
Ok sounds good. Hopefully work doesn't make me change when I come in. We already had a policy about changing shoes (not strictly enforced for staff, but all the kids had to change to crocs or something when they came in).
@ClamJam I don't have high hopes for people wearing masks in the train/bus. but who knows. There's just no other way for me to get to work. An uber is $30 each way+ tip I thought about riding a bike, but it's just not safe for me to do so.
I would also stand, not sit, and maybe put on some gloves for the ride that you can toss as soon as you step outside the train. For me, it's psychological. The gloves (mine are blue) stop me from touching my face and my phone in higher risk locations.
Re: commuting safety, if I have to take a train or bus to work, should I change masks once I get to my office? If I'm in the office I wouldn't be masking since I don't share the space, but I'm thinking for the rare in-person events, walking through my building, or across campus, etc.
I would, especially since you will be taking it on and off.
I probably would @Fitz. The problem wouldn’t be you continuing to wear it, but setting it down, touching it again, and whatever it touches when it’s off. Just pack a clean and dirty (ziploc or some other) bag. For on-campus walkabouts I’d just hang it on a hook or pushpin in the same place when you aren’t wearing it. Wash hands afterwards, etc.
(Jeff Goldblum this pandemic is such a pain in the ass.)
For reference, this is what I do with my mask at work when I eat:
If you have a spot where you can set the mask with the outside-facing surface down and just leave it til you need it, you're fine to use it again. The problem is in making sure the straps don't get under it and that you're putting it back on with the same side facing you.
Re: changing clothes at work - not necessary. If it's not too hot, you can wear a light jacket or sweater that you can remove at work if it helps with peace of mind.
Personally, I think I would still change masks once I got to work. But I admit I am pretty paranoid and touch my face a ton.
I have tried a bunch of masks and have some clear favorites if that would be helpful for anybody.
Why would I change my mask after commuting? I touch my face and glasses a lot. I try not to, but I screw up sometimes. So after being on a train with people in close proximity breathing on me, I would want a fresh washable mask.
A local place is selling plague masks, hepa filters optional. It’s creepy, but I’m also delighted that someone thought to do this.
I’m sad all over again.
Aged like milk
My birthday and S's birthday were/are on a Saturday, and this was suppose to be an amazing year
I feel this. We were supposed to go to Hawaii for my dad’s 70th, and do a fun travel adventure this summer for rooster’s 40th. Someday, right?
