    Isn't Halloween too far away for me to have a touchscreen ghost?

    Knowing Mrs. Panda's appointment would take a while, I had brought my N7 along and was playing Flow Free Bridges. There was a definite dead spot above the bottom left corner using my stylus with a conductive fabric mesh tip, so if I tried dragging a pipe into that area it was as if I lifted off the stylus. Using my finger was fine. I had never had this happen before. Prior to flashing the fix posted on XDA, sensitivity to any rubber-tipped stylus was ok but not as sensitive as I'd like, but it was consistent all across the screen. Prior to the fix, the mesh-tipped one didn't register enough to be worth using.

    Then there was a freeze/random reboot, after which I still had the dead spot. I wound up watching a movie.

    Now at home, having rebooted again, it's fine. Hmm. I think I've got a script for Exorcist IV.

    TS-10. If it had persisted, I was going to try one of the others.

    Maybe Google can hire Craig T. Nelson and a little blonde girl for Kit Kat release commercials. "It's heeeeere!"
