I guess we haven’t gotten some official list of gating issues - and I’d love to have one. But I think we have a pretty good idea of the main (maybe only) gating issues from their statements over past months. Most of it seems to keep coming back to connection issues. And for awhile we had swap issues, but I’m not seeing reports on that lately so hopefully that one is at least satisfactory.
Connection issue can have multiple effects and I supposed some things that may look like they could be caused by connection problems could be caused by something else - actually that’s why I’d like a list. Not so much to see what is on it, but what is NOT on it!
So, back to connections and possible effects:
An obvious one would be you start the TB and nothing happens when you type because the connection failed.
Another obvious one may be not being able to pair to a device.
But what if you are typing and suddenly you get nothing and then it starts typing again a few characters later - did it lose connection briefly?
Or a similar situation, but while the characters are briefly delayed, they all still show up in a couple seconds. Is that a possible connection issue?
How about key repeats? As I understand it, a signal is sent to the computer about a key being pressed down, but when the key is released, another signal is sent to say so. If you lose connection before it comes back up, the computer (or other device) thinks it is still down and repeats the key.
Or maybe it messes up only after a jump. Still could be a connection issue.
All of these things could be related to connections. Or some may not be. A list may clarify that. Since I know there are people with connection issues, then it would be nice if I knew all the problems were the same root cause - fewer things to fix!
I’d also love some data on how widespread problems are. This could be about the percentage of people who have them and/or about how often they happen to those who experience them. Big difference in having a connection issue once a month compared to several times a day.
