Hey. Has anybody else ever posted on these forums from a mobile device? I do most of the time and it doesn't work well at all. It's understandable, since this site is made for PC, so I don't expect a solution or anything. I just want to find someone who shares my pain. :P

I post from my Android phone quite often. It can be a pain, but if it is the only access I have at the moment, I work through it.

The problems I have: I can't use arrow keys. You have to try to tap on the screen where you need to change or insert something. Often I can't quote long posts and type in a reply. That's when I use a-hard-days-night-ringo-8. I don't even try to insert pictures or links or anything advanced like that on my phone. I just remember which posts I want to respond to and do that when I get back to a PC.

I don't use the site on my ipod as its a right pain to use, but that goes for many sites when using the ipod that haven't got their own apps. Very occassionally i might read some of the posts but i won't post unless absolutely necessary. I don't expect Joe to build one tho considering the cost involved. I'm happy the way things are with the site availability.

Already had my first two exams.

Yesterday I had a digital language test, which was nationwide. They've set that one in the hope students' essays will improve. The grammar students use is often very bad, apparently. Older students and teachers always scared us about that test so we were all frightened. 

It was a piece of cake. It was 4 parts and you needed to have 80% or more overall to pass it but also had to score at least 80% on a specific part alone. I had 100% on that part and 95% overall. I can't believe people actually failed, though a lot did.

This morning I had my second exam, which was about psychological tendencies, stages of life and methods and methodics to use in the psychology. It was really hard and I think I failed. There were some pretty weird questions in it. It was a true or false exam and one of the thesises (?) was ''Maroccans drink more alcohol than the Dutch''. Another was ''There are more dyslexic people in England than there are in the Netherlands.'' Those are such weird questions! Like, what do they have to do with any of those subjects? The girl who sat next to me actually screamed WHATTHEFUCK through the classroom, because she didn't understand them either. I don't think anyone did. Hello mindfuck.

Also, my brother deleted my Microsoft Office stuff by accident and now I don't have Word anymore and I have 3 essays due next week and I also have to do some stuff for my portfolio (my personal development thingie). I'm a bit stressed, to say the least.

Linde, {{hugs}} I hope your week improves.

The shared drive a work "reverted" to last Thursday. I had put so much work into lots of files on Friday. Thank John/George/Ringo/Paul I had saved the data on my flash drive, but I had lumped all the files together into one mega file. Now I have to tease the information back out into its smaller files. Oh, well, it could have been a lot worse.

This rollback isn't quite as emotionally traumatic as the BB rollback we had recently. :-) I'm ok over here.

Like a sci fi fantasy story about the future of music: Imagine an app that will be developed where you click it on and it records whatever you do -- if you play something on a guitar, a piano, any instrument, or just hum or whistle a tune, the app has a memory bank of all songs ever recorded in history, and within seconds it can tell you if the melody you are playing (or humming or whistling) is plagiarizing some previous music. 

Not all musical similarities are exact, of course; so this app would also come with a plug-in feature that would, within seconds, be able to tell you if your melody is legally different enough from -- even though somewhat similar to -- any previous melody such that you can go ahead and record it without incurring any lawsuits.

If only George Harrison had had such an app in 1971, he might never have had the headaches of the suit against him (for "My Sweet Lord") that dragged on for ten years.

Being a songwriter myself, I sometimes wonder which of my melodies -- or parts of my songs -- are practically replications of some other songs, perhaps obscure ones from the distant past?  Once, I had written a melody and lyrics for a diversion to be added to the American folk music classic "Jim Crack Corn".  Years later, I realized, listening to an album of "Italian Woodwind Music" that my melody was virtually the same as one part of Rossini's Wind Quartet No. 4 in B-Flat Major...!  It wasn't like I had never heard that Rossini piece before; I had played it a couple of times long before, and apparently that melody had lodged itself in my memory banks.

Yeah, like I said, it's understandable and I don't expect a solution. I have to say, though, having a very basic knowledge of web design, this site is pretty well done. Also, I've tried creating and running a forum before, so I know firsthand that it is not easy.

You can already get Easter Eggs in some stores - in January. Seriously, feck off. And you can take your limited edition creme eggs, hot cross buns and all that other Easter-related junk and shove it in the back stores until the 6th of April, leaving 2 weeks to shove it down our throats.

Stores where I live have to get through the Mardi Gras and Valentines stuff before they get to the Easter things; however, I do suspect they will begin to put out Easter stuff as Mardi Gras nears.

You wonder what shops did for the periods between Christmas and Easter, Easter and Halloween, Halloween and Christmas before commercialisation started. There was a time when Valentines Day was a small deal, now you get all kinds of crap thrown at you from all shops. Apple are incredible with all the merchandise they come out with but they might just be beaten by all the junk shops are coming out with - just for that special someone in your life or so spoiled little brats can be extra spoiled or constantly whine for.

Love king cakes. There is a family store on the north side of my city that sales them almost year round; however, I only eat them around Mardi Gras though. Guess what the name of it is called? Paul's King Cakes.

I've posted on my tablet and mobile before. Reading threads is fine, but posting is rather annoying because it does weird things sometimes, such as duplicating words that I've only typed once (I typed "look" but it ended up "looklook in one of my posts). I try and catch when it happens before posting that way it doesn't seem like I have a weird problemproblem. ahdn_ringo_09
