Hello? Oh, sorry, I was busy not looking at this screen. -boB (talk) 15:35, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

I'm at work, but I just realized I need to lower my Show Time score. My socks are demanding it. -boB (talk) 19:31, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

I think my use tracking apps (yes, I have more than one) can be set to track how much time I spend using use tracking apps. 162.158.214.148 20:37, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

With apps like Automate, you can automate most of the use cases for use time tracking apps; it'll just take some time to learn how to use it.  ;S

If I didn't arranged meeting using phone, I wouldn't have any people to talk to. Also, some of those complains are mixing up cause and effect: for example, in mass transit, people generally don't WANT to talk to other people, and before phones they usually read newspapers or books. In fact, that was already mentioned here wasn't it? Or did I mixed up 1227 with [1]? -- Hkmaly (talk) 00:12, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

The explanation incorrectly mentions that Cueball's screen time has lowered by 6%, while it's actually his non-screen time that has raised by 6%. That's not the same thing: if we do assume he's awake 16 hours per day, his screen time has only decreased by about 1.2%. 172.68.245.151 03:56, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

That is, unless Randall meant 6% of Cueball's entire awake time. I haven't thought of it until after posting. 172.68.245.151 03:59, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
A better approximation of non-sleep time would be 17 hours per day. Average sleep time in USA is a little under 7 hours/day. I adjusted the percent of day awake calculation accordingly. 108.162.246.59 00:05, 5 November 2019 (UTC)
No, 6%. It actually specifies "While awake.". Randall already thought of that. :) NiceGuy1 (talk) 04:22, 8 November 2019 (UTC)

Clearly someone doesn't know what the word "pun" means (see paragraph 2)

The mention of Bluetooth socks reminded me of the Netflix Socks that automatically pause playback if you fall asleep. http://makeit.netflix.com/projects/socks (Sorry if the link is broken, Netflix is blocked from work.) 172.69.62.166 14:44, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

In case anyone else is confused, Neatnit has been inserting the discussion section on display problems with Google ads from Comic #2220 in all later comics using a wiki tag, so that discussion section and any changes to it on Comic #2220 are reflected on these later comics. I'm guessing it's because the problem has persisted since #2220, so this is an attempt to maintain a single discussion and keep the issue visible until there's a resolution. If this is not the reason, then it's confusing and disruptive. If it's a meta-joke about going back in time, then it's getting old. Ianrbibtitlht (talk) 21:03, 1 November 2019 (UTC)

Yes, that's right - it's to keep it visible. I should have been more vocal about it rather than just doing it silently... My bad.
However, the section's [edit] button will take you to the correct place, so it shouldn't be that confusing.

Does Randall draw XKCD on his phone? How does the amount of non-screen time he reports compare with the tme he spends cartooning?[edit]
