The Carriage Return: Ballard Commons- Thursday, October 17th -
“Well, the weather outside is stormy…. “
Actually, it’s just really cloudy right now. And as we all know, there’s a saying here in Seattle: “Don’t like the weather? Wait five minutes”.
So, while we wait for this foggy layer to burn off, let’s talk about our plans for this evening, when the sun…
Things that helped speed it up and improve my battery life:
1. Reduce Motion
Go to Settings -> General -> Accessibility
Switch the “Reduce Motion” to “On”
This improved the responsiveness of the UI for me.
2. Turn down Background App Refresh for some apps
Also in Settings -> General, go to “Background App Refresh” and turn it off or just turn it off for certain apps.
Should help with battery life.
3. Turn off Bluetooth if you don’t need it
I can’t believe the weather is holding so well for us! The clouds promise to burn off by this afternoon, so we’re headed outside again! This time we’ll be at Greenlake, on the Northwest corner of the lake, very close to the Bathhouse Theater. Cup your ear and listen for the sounds of the machines click-clacking….
We’ll be there starting at 4 pm. We’ll go till the sun goes down, around 7pm or so.
Hope to see you there.

Join us again this Thursday, September 26th, from 4 pm till dusk at Gasworks Park in Seattle. Yes, Gasworks again. What can we say? Why fix what isn’t broken? The air is a bit crisper, and the light is fading, so we’re starting a bit earlier this time around. Please come and sit a while. Type up a story or two. Share it if you like. We’ll be there, ready with paper.
