    Mine too. I use the mobile version of the site on safari on my iPhone 95% of the time. If I want to upload a pic I use tapatalk. Other than that I have no problems.

    It's impossible to provide technical support to people who are browsing the site while using third-party plugins to control which content they actually see. I apologize if you feel that's not fair on a free website?



    Again, how are we to diagnose something that many people are experiencing through someone who selectively blocking content? At the end of the day, the issues that we were facing in January actually had nothing whatsoever to do with the ads, the issue was on a server level and connected to a different website hosted on the same box.

    I'm here to help, and will try to help anyone, on any device or platform, but in order to do so, we must remove the variables first is all I was trying to say.

    Robb,

    I consider you a kindred spirit. I used to do web stuff before I found out that plumbing/HVAC pays more and lets me sleep in longer. Mainly the sleeping in part...

    I had NO problems with any viruses, lags, hangs, or other spyware from ads or ad-induced sites linked with the server while using the ad blocking software. I'd think that someone using this kind of software would be a tool for your diagnosis procedure, just as what our customers DIY or symptom descriptions provide us. Us HVAC guys typically cut and isolate sections to get a better diagnosis of different areas. An ad blocker does the same for you, especially no-script since it isolates very specific areas with extended information. The only thing that no-script does for me is block the ads and make my screen better utilize the area for the forum. Mainly, the threads become wider L-R and narrower T-B.

    Ive often offered to pay for a non-ad based site. If only to allow for more screen area. I have a 17" screen. If I turn off the ad blocker, 1/3 of it is covered. That's BS. Total BS, plus the fact that I can easily become infected from an ad. I'd expect from a well funded and well run site that their detection software would be much more up to the minute updated and more sophisticated than my own lowly efforts. But...

    Tapatalk is probably the best mobile accessing method. Any issues experienced in that platform should probably be resolved with their engineering staff. Anything that's on the server level would be between TT engineering and HVAC-T IT.

    Well if you want I have a 32" screen if you want it. I'll ship if you pay for the cost. I don't need anymore.

    Yeah I'm getting there. New job's a blessing, keeps me busy & very supportive people. Downtime kills me still & our dog's been sad. That's killing me too.

    Down time should give you some time to mourn which is a neccessary thing to do. The dog probably won't get over it just like you won't but hopefully things will get a little better with time. Still praying for you, cheers.
