My iPad is amazing, I rarely put it down. One of the reasons I don't post here much is because I can't when I'm using my ipad, The comment/post box comes up but I cannot type in it.

Same here for me using my iPad. it only happens here at HH too. It's frustrating to want to use it to comment and it doesn't work. I had commented on this before in another post, and Dave said that they're gonna fix it for us. So hold out for a little longer and it will begin to work.

Hi Folks,

This issue is not specific to HH and is due to the fact that mobile Safari does not provide support for rich editing (which our forum defaults to).

One workaround that is available for users is to go to edit profile/site options and change content editor to "plain text". Once this is done, it will be possible to create forum posts on IOS devices. This will affect all browsers you use on the site though.

Hope this helps.

Dave

Thanks for the heads-up. I'm in for it.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Man I really want to enter this one but there's only the option to put in a state, no provinces.. Even though the rules say Canadians can enter :( Hopefully I can get a hold of someone on their FB page.

Newegg.ca has their own e-blast, just mainly Canadian prices/deals is the only difference. And ya those dang math questions!!! Lol, they are pretty easy though ;) I guess Canada doesn't want "dumb" people winning contests, which is in itself dumb... Stupid people deserve to win too :P

got this card last  week from a Rockin Austin City Limits promotion last month sponsored by AMD and Sapphire

@AMDatACL had a promotion last month and Sapphire was one of the generous sponsors and a Very Happy Camper here .
Thank you AMD and Sapphire ! as well as Jon Peters over at AMD in working out the details for sending me my card.

 

A bit of  tweaking the card  can be found here

Hopefully you joined the ~Sapphire Select~ club as a Gold Member. I've won prizes from them since I joined. They have a lot of contests for their members too.

you bet I did man !  thanks for mentioning it .Hope others that  have Sapphire cards and are unaware can benefit too .Yes

...Come to think of the Jon at AMD sent me message the next day to remind me & told them I was already on it. Ya know the folks at Sapphire & AMD  are pretty generous AMD also had AMD’s FX CPU Giveaway on www.amd.com/comic. prior to Bulldozer's launch..Did  not win the FX-8150 but did win the Collectable Ruby Doll.[me thinks SuperDave may have mentioned that one & doing a brain-chill as to exactly where that one is in HH ]

I should have gotten a Sapphire card last time I got a Vid card, Instead I tried to save a few $ and went with Diamond. They don't have much product support.
