It appears that some members have difficulty viewing content on this message board, or difficulties with creating and posting messages to the board, or difficulties printing messages received. It might help to know what kinds of devices are being used to access this board. Then, perhaps some guidelines can be created to insure that posted messages are viewable by a larger percentage of members.

Hi my Dear.. I'm using sometimes my tab..when I'm playing just to check and use also my iPhone., but in printing and in my rest time or midnight in my desk I open my laptop and its automatic access to colontalk. but most of the time and my baby is my iPhone .. I keep it always with me.. Working jogging and even gardening in our small garden..that I dOnt wanna miss anything .. My emails and reading here.. That's it's difficult for me at midnight with sleepy eyes.. In a small screen..reason sometimes the Word that I type was mistaken., or mis typing.

It would be nice to have a Colon Talk app for times I'm restricted to using my iPhone. I tend to do most of my CT business from my laptop sitting on my desktop. With wireless keyboard and mouse, of course.
