    OK, Who's got an iPad then?

    I have just been checking our Google stats and thought I'd have a look at what platforms people are using to browes the site, and was rather surprised to see the iPad so high, followed by Android (which I presumed was just me!). So come on, who's the closet iPad owners?

    I've been using my iPad to access the site and everything else I look at (Twitter, FB, etc). I don't use a pc or a laptop anymore for browsing.

    Those iPad users are really lowering the tone of the place
    Use my Android sometimes, just for browsing, my typing on it is too poor to contribute using it.

    I use my HTC Desire to surf as well but since I got my iPad I've been using that all the time.

    I've gone from being a rabid hater of all things Apple to a convert since owning an iPad. Mind you, I still think a lot of the other Apple products are poo. The iPad though is a brilliant tool. Overpriced, but still a brilliant tool. I use it to teach at a charity I do voluntary work for and it is indispensable.

    It's amusing more people are using Linux than OSX. Not by much, mind, but it's nice to see.

    edit: *resolves to go home and fire up the Kindle to add more obscure OS' to the chart*

    Well, back to tha laptop.

    Verdict: the link-heavy nature of the site (note i didnt use the mobile version) makes navigation hard with a "jumpy" pointer (kindly pings you from link to link). Screen refresh being so slow is not much of a problem.
    No problems logging in or searching. Minimal glitching.
    Hitting post resulted in a "try again in 30s" error... but I did, and it worked. Maybe becuase this machine is logged in as me behind the same NAT?

    Other than that, reading the board was pleasant enough, if sluggish (CPU bound probably.. this was on wifi rather than 3g).
    Using page-next button to move through posts was good. Even Dos_box's image of the danger hiptop rendered ok.

    Did expect it to be "phone like" and capitalise after punctuation mind. Dunno why, given the semi-complete kb. Speaking of which, you have to g softkey for a comma. Bah. No wonder kids these days are cack at punctuation.

    Dos_box - was I the 1st knindle?
