    Accessing with Android

    I only have internet via phone.
    Lately, screen refresh seems to hang up.
    This does not happen on any other site.

    Hope it's not a "update your browser"
    as most of the Android updates seem to have a negative effect on performance.

    And the Jelly bean os ended my short lived computer Internet-access-via-phone.
    I've been on here 2.5hrs keeping up with only 3 threads. That's $$200 bucks!

    Nope. Didn't know that.

    Today I'd related to this password reset I had to do on my computer (which I did yesterday) as to why my Android would just hang up with an incessant "time clock spiral" looking little thingie when I was trying to access this site (the phone was constantly logged on through Tapatalk). So I said to myself, "oh yeah" and logged out completely and then tried logging in with my new password.

    Says it's invalid. I then tried using my old password. Says it's invalid too.

    I'm really dumb at this stuff. It was fine two days ago. Don't know what flavor firmware it is (jelly bean or whatever) other than Android 4.4.2 on a two year old HTC One Max.

    Does anyone have any ideas how I can regain access to HVAC-Talk through Tapatalk on my Android phone?

    For the password reset I needed to tap the three dot Android menu at the top right and request the desktop version of the site and I reset it as if I was on a computer.

    If you already changed your password you may just need to clear your cookies so the phone doesn't remember the site

    They must be aware that mobile users have overtaken computer users by a lot in just the last few years. There are more mobile only users now and keeps climbing. Desktop or laptop use is still on a decline.

    To deal with that we may end up having to dump VBullentin and go with another software platform. Are you guys willing to learn another system?


    ... and yes, I am painfully aware.
