do any of you tech-heads out there know how to use 'sky fire' ( or any other app) to access the chat room on here?

(not for me, but for those members who use apple products)

Thanks tony, I guess this is cos of my pm to you.... For info of others I downloaded sky fire on to my iPad but it just gives me a sign in page for the chat room but won't allow me to type anything in to it.....so if any one else knows how to access the chat room from an iPad I would be very grateful.... Thanks for bringing it up tony

Would that be on account of not having a keyboard? :rolleyes::biggrinjester:

Nope, it puts it on the screen as a video and then I can't do anything with it... Complicated these apple things. I'd rather grow them myself!

I had that and when I played it, it seems to work OK. Will try again and let you know.

Do any of you suffer from IPad finger?
I.e. press on a thread and the OP's details come up because you have pressed half a millimetre too high/low.

The chat room uses flash so you need a flash enabled browser to use it on the ipad.
I have got iswifter installed on my ipad and this loads the chat room fine.

Hope this helps.

Cheers Chris

Apple and Flash, owned by Adobe these days. I seem to remember the conversation where a year and more ago when the two entities slagged each other off. Given that quite a lot of Apple's success in the graphics arena was based on Adobe products, The late Steve Jobs and one of Adobe's senior executives got into a public slanging match about the quality of each other's products. So no Flash on Apple - don't hold your breath. HTML5 is just around the corner . . . for all you Apple fan-boys and girls.

Doubtless the idea is to use the likes of TapTalk to access the pub, from the pub.

What I have against TapTalk, other than the name, is the insistence of a number of users (Blackberry also) of that silly little "Sent by TapTalk from my iPad/Blackberry etc.". As if the world other than the abusive manufacturer and the loyal user, being milked by the former on a regular basis, gives a hoot!

That is just the signature that comes with the equipment. All you have to do is go into signature and change it to something else but many don't realise that

When 'sent from my iPhone' etc first appeared it looked like 'Hey look everybody I have an iPhone'. The spurious justification was that it should be taken as 'done in a hurry, excuse the brevity and spelling' which actually translates as 'I have no life beyond checking my mail every minute, I haven't read your whole note and never will but have a compulsion to respond immediately'. That may just be the managers I worked with, of course. :)

The marketing dept still see it as cheap advertising to make it the default signature line; they have no idea how the practice has always been regarded as a bit crap. As time passes it appears increasingly to be a 'novice user' (the civil version) flag in that they have no idea how to turn it off.

2 - and steward of 8 others.
Just wondering if anyone has had any success with this problem, since the suggestions posted here?

I hate buying apps that don't work. Can't get refunds.
