    My keyboard on my phone is too small.
    I can't upload images from the app.
    Mobile mode on my phone is annoying.
    Full mode on my phone is even more annoying.
    I can't upload an animated gif whatever way i try.
    The drag function on previously uploaded attachments doesn't work on a phone.
    I lost a decent reply because "manage attachments" isn't a pop-up/tab like on a computer.

    Today is going to be one of those days... i should have known that some SJW on teh tumblr started spouting about how my opinion is invalid because I'm a white heterosexual cisgendered male.

    I'm done. I officially hate everyone now. GG, humanity. [Off topic rant ftw]
    I've struggled with things like attachments and video linking when working on mobile myself, plus my phone has a mind of it's own, so I feel your pain on those points. I'm going to imagine that I read a fine old rant from you that rampaged over me and left nothing but scorched earth, so you can enjoy the satisfaction of making me reel from your vehemence. How's that for a deal?

    See you in a bit,

    Good morning imaginary class. Time for the last daily draw and also the winner of our BACK TO SCHOOL STAR PRIZE! 2 draws, 2 winners and 3 (count 'em) guest appearances plus some robot violence coming up - watch on...



    Congratulations daily winner @nephilim - the Batman earbuds are yours, and extra special congrats to our star prize winner @siuko - you are now the proud owner of a VeryPC Nano Sketch with i3 CPU, 4GB RAM, 120GB SSD and windows home licence PLUS you get to decorate the side panel with the design of your choice!


    @siuko you need to tell us whether you want Windows 7 or Windows 8 (both home 64bit versions). Plus you need to decide on a design to laser etch the side of your Nano Sketch and we'll send you a visual mockup for approval before we fire the laser (we will probably need to adapt your design a bit to make it fit the constraints of the laser etching, but you can essentially have whatever artwork you want).

    That's it - thanks to everybody who entered the competition - special thanks to thread contributors for keeping the fun going. Big thanks to my VeryPC colleagues who helped out with the videos: @VeryPC_Colin_M, Dan, Adam and Luke the cameraman.

    Bye for now - next stop STOCKTOBER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Cheers,

    Al

    You're welcome.

    No rush on choosing a design - just let us know when you've decided. Also specify Windows 7 or 8 (will be the home version 64 bit of either).

    You're welcome, and also fairly correct about our brains (well, at least where promotional videos are concerned anyway).

    I would like Windows 8 please.

    I was thinking of just having a quote from my favorite film placed on the side.

    Its from dune and the bit I want goes as follows...

    A person needs new experiences.
    They jar something deep inside, allowing him to grow.
    Without change something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens.
    The sleeper must awaken.

    Have you done any text only designs? How do they look?

    "The sleeper must awaken"

    That's a really good idea - I love that movie and find those four words to be spine-tingling. Nice choice. I tell you what we'll do, we'll mock it up with the whole quote in a couple of typefaces and you can tell us which you prefer, OR if you have a certain typeface in mind, let me know what it is and we'll use that.

    Thanks,

    Al

    Well I've just checked and I think one of the original Dune fonts is HERE

    But I have a feeling that wont look to good with that quote...

    So if you could possibly mock up with any you think will fit the quote that would be great thanks

    Possible make "The sleeper must awaken" part italc to emphasize it? What do you think?

    Thanks again!! Really excited to see what it looks like

    Your instinct it correct, that font would only work for headlines and titles etc, not really appropriate for reading a quote. Here's a screen cap of the last line as displayed in my font management software:



    I'll find a couple that look better and let you choose soon.

    It reminds me more of the Austin Powers film title than of Dune
