Posting on phone vs computer
« on: February 05, 2019, 09:01:14 PM »
I have a feeling browsing CaB on a desktop or laptop leads to more measured and detailed posting, myself included. In comparison it's a panoramic, less frantic format versus tap-tapping on a tiny screen.

Do you think it makes much difference at all?

I utterly loathe browsing the internet on my phone. Feels like it's giving me arthritis. Especially this place since Tapatalk stopped working.

Actually, since I changed network it says I'm banned and calls me a cunt when I try to log on to here using my phone. Wonder what that is about.

I only come on here when I'm at work. I don't have my log-in saved on my own machines, ipads or phone. having C&B at home would eat into my wanking time too much.

I hear ya, but I like to concentrate on one thing at a time. besides, the 'phwoar' thread is too SFW for my tastes, & the blokes don't do anything for me.

Using phones for anything prolonged just seems mad to me, too uncomfortable, but I guess other people don't find that.

yep. though they're ok for brief periods of kindling if you have to stand for your commute.

I had a dell streak (I bet you did, dirty bollocks y') in 2010, & it was a shit phone if I'm honest, but so much bigger of a screen (5") than the usual iphones & whatnot of the day. great for reading, browsing, watching video.... but a rubbish phone. & (then) deeply unfashionable, because no-one had heard of 'phablet' then. I got rid, & have had a succession of iphones since, sticking with the 5 because it's a sensible size & does what I need... itunes, kindle, email (reading), guitar tuner, camera, shazam, whatsapp.... sometimes even use it as a phone. two old iphone 4s are now internet radios.

& now everyone's got these feckin' huge phones with screens like infinity pools.

I'm not an expert, but Welcome to Night Vale and Lore are good.

I've heard good things about The NoSleep Podcast.

I listened to one Lore and although it started ok, it became a bit "oooh and another ghost is reported to be walking in the other part of the building".

NoSleep was also on the list that I googled, but none of the descriptions did it for me. Night Vale sounds interesting though, thanks!

If you mean real life horror then casefile is a good podcast about horrendous crimes.

We hate movies is one of the best podcast about films and they have lots of horror in their archives.

I’m too old and out of touch. How do you even get on the internet using a telephone? The dial on mine doesn’t even have letters, just numbers.

It's easily the worst website to use on a phone that I visit regularly. Just an ordeal...

Not quite as bad as a few years ago where the Amazon banner turned every pixel on the screen that wasn't a link into a link to Amazon.

What's wrong with cab on a phone? Have you all got a Nokia 3310? I choose my phone over my desktop at work for posts but I rarely post more 3 sentences of "blah blah <lazy cab meme>"

It's just about how wide it all is, on a phone you have to scroll from side to side and constantly zoom in and out. Hurts my eyes after a while, however the desktop design is great in terms of spacing and all that.

I do most of my posting on here via phone. Largely because before I started my 'new' job I spent pretty much all day titting about on here and other forums and knew I had to pack it in.

At home I used to use a phone/tablet but the battery got rinsed so I went back to laptop. Comes with the bonus I can prop it on the arm of the sofa without holding it up.

Is there some issue with posting on phones and tablets recently? I've noticed the textbox is super laggy where it was fine a few weeks ago. Thought it might be an out of control script or something, but it could be my tablet is suffering android rot.

Both my android devices are OK, but I had to change from SwiftKey on the tablet, for some reason, as it would lag... Maybe try stock keyboard? Or other.

I've not noticed on here, but there was something with chrome or android that completely fucked rich text entry fields for a while. It's sorted now.

This, and there is a problem with Morse code support recently, my posts have been coming out less funny when using it.

I've been experiencing this issue too on my android for the last week or so.
It seems to resolve after several lines.
Must be an issue with the latest Chrome update.
