    Well, that's cool if I'm posting about computer sh*t! I just am not into that, and at age 74 never will be. But if you have a legal, financial, landscape, or guitar set up question, I might just be the man to contact! None of us know it all!

    I definitely don't claim to know it all..
    But if you can use the remote for the tv-cable box,Program the microwave to reheat last nights dinner or setup the radio presets in a Benz, Figuring out how to configure an app on your ipad shouldn't be that difficult.

    Well, actually sir, setting up the radio in my new Benz has been a bit of a do! We finally got it after a few calls to the dealers "conceriege". Some younger people do not realize how difficult computer and digital tech is for us older people. But we have other skills. Many people come to me for legal advise. Others come to me for financial advice. Others come to me for landscape advice. And still others come to me for help in setting up their guitar. All simple stuff to me, but difficult for them. But all of our brains have a limited capacity for information, and mine has reached it. I can microwave a dinner, but the TV remote is a bit of a problem, as our cable company is a bit sh*tty. But digital stuff is just a bit over my head. At my age, by the time I learned it all, i'd be dead.

    Those pop-up ands that take control of the iPad have stopped happening for me in the last few weeks. I hope that SOMEBODY has put a permanent stop to them.

    I just had a Amazon pop-up on my Android device. I guess they haven't stopped.

    I know I may be childish sometimes..but this Playmobil add that opens up constantly since yesterday (only on my Macs, no from my iPhone or iPad) is annoying. I don't use Playmobil since around '88..Lego yes, but this is another story. Jokes apart, anyone else has this problem or it's just me? o_O

    Edit..there it is...

    I still get the Amazon Gift Card thing every time I try to use the site on my iPhone. I now consider it a feature, like a parental safeguard and not a bug. It prevents me from making an ass out of myself by posting from a bar/club.

    Interesting. Now I'm getting popups to join some Islamic Council. Seriously? That's almost reason enough.

    Well... now on my Android phone, instead of the highjack re-directs, I get a mini pop-up for about 3 seconds that says "pop-up blocked".


    Not sure if this is due to an MLP update or some update that occurred to my Android, but it is WAY better now!

    I can’t use this site on my iPhone...immediate redirects. It’s sad, really.
