As requested I'm introducing myself! My name is Samantha, Sam for short! As hinted in my username, I am an annual storm chaser, part of Skywarn etc, over in the USA. I have a passion for severe weather research and so am Editor and Director of The International Journal of Meteorology, a non-profit global severe weather journal for anyone interested in the weather and amazing photography too! The journal is a part of TORRO (TORnado and storm Research Organisation) all again non-profit.
We hold staff meetings and member conferences annually; i have a rare skin condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB for short!) and I have wanted an iPad for a long while now so I don't have to lug my laptop to meetings and conferences as with my disability it is difficult. So, although I've already downloaded a few office type apps I'm looking forward to the Microsoft office compatible stuff as I am finding a few problems with losing entries in my database of journal subscribers using the access client for iPad. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, did you fix it?
One last thing... REALLY feel like this is a dumb question, but, is there no "back" button on the ipad (lol)? E.g. I click a link from email it goes to Internet, so rather than having to hit "home" and click email again, how do you just go back?! Ipad2 btw. I'll surely be downloading the manual as suggested but thought I'd ask anyway!
Anyway hi all, and any Qs for me, fire away! Happy to be here woohoo!
