If I place my finger on a thread, the pop-up comes up. If I tap twice then it goes into the link. The problem is just that I can't view about 2-4 links above and below the one the pop-up is showing. Oh well, it's minor and just one more thing that makes me not want a Mac!

I almost bought one a few weeks ago but I just couldn't push myself to the dark side. :)

Dark side huh? I use Firefox/Safari on my two Macs with 14ers.com and my iPod Touch on a daily basis and haven't had any issues yet (I am also a Windows XP/7 and Ubuntu Linux user)... Plus, my computers are virus free. If that's giving in to the dark side then I'm all for it! :wink:

Here's how an Ipad works: Pay double the going rate for a netbook and triple the price of a Kindle, but you don't get a keyboard, USB port, or the ability to read a book on a glare-free screen in anything but perfect indoor light. You look cool sipping soy latte with it, though.

If you give in to the dark side you won't have to worry about spending tons of money on virus protection!

Oh please man, let's not get into a debate on a climbing website about the merits of Mac versus Windows versus Linux or whatever - they all have their uses and pros and cons. I personally use all of them on a daily basis both at work and at home and the stereotyping from fanboys on each side is ridiculous. Sounds like the PEBKAC to me... :wink:

Sorry, my fault.

Anyone else having problems with the new popups? On the home page or pages like the main trip reports?

Not necessarily the pop-ups, but I'm having some difficulty with the new cosmetic update, particularly in Google Chrome. When I highlight any link on the homepage (TRs, 14ers, current forum topics), the screen "freaks out" and is jumpy; the cursor won't focus as the entire page shifts up/down. This doesn't happen when opened with internet explorer.

Sorry just getting back. All works well after clearing cache in Google Chrome under Options.

I'll chip in my 2cents. I like my Dell desktop. I like my Dell laptop. I really like my 3giphone, ipod and ipad. They are what they are and all of them seem to work well with whatever Bill throws at us. There are apps for analyzing digital data on the ipad that are just amazing and I wouldn't do without at work, and free. If I want to read a book at the beach, I'll read a book at the beach. I'm not going to use a screwdriver for a hammer. (Well, maybe sometimes!) :oops:
It looks like the ridge is just right up there!
