    Thank you Gabriel1 and leelai - there's lots of fascinating information for me to read. Much appreciated.
    I am a Forum as well as an Apple iPad newbie. Is there also a page (here or on another site) to guide through Forum use, acronyms etc . I did read through the RULES page in this IPAD forum, some phrases I don't understand - like 'bump'???, lol

    I remember when I first joined and it was my first forum also.....I was forever googling the acronyms to see what they meant.

    As for bump, it's when someone posts about an issue and instead of waiting for someone to help them, they bump their post by doing a follow up post to draw attention to their question again. Being a world wide forum, at times the members who can help are not available and our Rules state that 48 hours should pass before a bump is allowed.

    I will attach a link regarding posting and starting new threads which covers both the site and the app. I personally find the app easier to navigate.

    Nice answer yes welcome to our forums.Just for your information both leelai and I are in Brisbane Australia about 18 hours ahead of the west coast of USA and our some 20 mods are scattered around the globe, This is one reason the 48 hour bump is in place. The bottom line is enjoy our forums ask questions and given time some one from around the world either one of our users or one of our staff will respond
