It is hard to teach an old dog new tricks and I am an old dog that is happy as things are. By the way my flip phone may need replacing soon hope I can get another one. Last one was about $25.

I can tell that many if not MOST users are using their smartphone to read and write texts... their fat-fingered spelling errors and missing/misleading text makes it obvious they can barely read what they are writing, so proofing is not going to happen.

I'm stuck using a 15 inch screen on a laptop on the full forum and I am doing well with the old format...

As I see it most questions on this forum do not need more than 15-20 replies to get the answer to the posted question. It does amaze me some of the topics get to a hundred+ replies... but everyone needs to be heard sometimes. Gives us retired guys something to think about besides what is going on at work.

While we are all happy to have you here it is not mandatory that you are.

Most of us who have been using this forum for nearly a decade are happy and comfortable with the format just as it is.

When you arrive at a new place, whether an online forum or say a new job or new city, Nobody wants to hear how smart you are and how dumb they are or how things were done at your previous place

They will be more than happy for you to simply assimilate into the culture they have and are comfortable with.

Just some observations, take them for what they are worth. Just my $0.02

That is true but those mods affect only one particular camper.

Forum format mods affect everyone here.............but as we learned from WMTIRE re this particular "mod" both are available to us all

My company still supports Windows95 running astonishingly high tech equipment.


COBOL isn't just used at a few companies. There is a LOT of running code out there, but the new kids don't want to support the dinosaur.

It's because they don't teach COBOL anywhere anymore. I learned it in college back in the late 90's and coded in it for many years.

My daughters went to the same college recently and it's not even offered as a class anymore. A lot of companies are running into the problem of their workforce that knows the language are retiring and there isn't anyone new to replace them.

This forum is the best way that I have used for all aspects of FR rv. The change that would like to make is after the time stamp note that "thread starter" is making a comment. Also the post number #6-of ?, just to help keep track of where you are in the post. This is the way that a Jeep forum uses that I read,and I don't read many (3).

Another faster way to switch viewing modes is to use the display modes dropdown box at the top of the thread and then choose whichever viewing mode you want.
