    What music are you listening to right now!?!?

    One of my favourite bands, The Astonishing is a rock opera in the vein of Rush's 2112 and The Who's Tommy. Spread over 2 CDs, it's a formidable work and definitely worth spending a couple hours on.

    What music are you listening to right now!?!?

    Mike Oldfield's sister, Sally. After her first album "Water Bearer" she moved to Germany where she released a number of albums, most of which were quite unknown in the UK. She features on several of Mike's albums and guested on Steve Hackett's album "Voyage Of The Acolyte"

    On the road and off it too.

    Hi Dave. That must have been an interesting trip. I've been pretty close to Alaska, but never made it across the border. One day, maybe. I'm heading out again tonight for the Arctic. In answer to @scifan57's earlier question; yes, I used the Dempster Highway to get to Inuvik. There is now an...

    Half sign on keyboard

    Keyboards are pretty handy, as @twerppoet and @J. A. have already said. I find myself in the position of wanting to type Dvořák frequently. I set up a keyboard shortcut which will change dvorak to the composer's name complete with capital D and accents. Setting up on one device migrates the...

    What music are you listening to right now!?!?

    Been expanding my music collection somewhat over the past few months. Currently playing a compilation of 80s stuff, but more normally play prog rock and classical. Yes and the various offshoots and side projects have figured heavily in my listening just lately. Here are a few recent plays:

    selecting text often very tricky

    One thing I'd suggest is make sure you are not inadvertently touching another part of the screen while you are selecting. It is fiddly and takes practice, but you shouldn't see text selection happening in a different area. You could try zooming in to make the selection area easier to locate.

    Writing in Portuguese with a Smart Keyboard in Spanish

    If you use accented words frequently, you can add the word as a keyboard shortcut, complete with accents, and then use an unaccented version, which iOS will change automatically. For example, I often want to type the name of the composer, Dvořák, so I set up a k/b shortcut allowing me to type...

    Camera icon missing

    Good advice from @giradman and since this thread is so old I'll close it. A new thread would be more likely to attract attention.

    To buy, or not to buy...'tis a waiting game.

    Suppose it depends whether you think you need all the latest bells and whistles. My iPad 2 is still serviceable after several years, but of course, there is a whole heap that it can't do now. I bought my wife an iPad Pro, so that she was starting with the latest. As with all computer tech...

    If you use "Active Topics" you'll see the subjects that are currently attracting interest. If anyone digs up a very old thread, it rises to the top but we generally take the opportunity to close it if the information in the lead post is out of date. What we don't want to do is close hundreds...

    Hi @nevadaesj and welcome. It's true that some of the sticky threads could do with an update. Trouble is, a lot of us have been around so long that we don't revisit the threads that deal with older versions of iOS, and have forgotten that some of them even exist. You are welcome to start any...

    Leonard Cohen - The best of... Somehow, Leonard Cohen managed to fly under my radar. However, I recently bought a CD collection which contains several of his disks. I could listen to this stuff all day.

    My beer

    I'm in. There's a truck stop in Germany on the A61 near Koblenz that has its own microbrewery on site. Needless to say, it was one of my favourite stopping places in Germany. Other pleasant memories include the Königsbacher brewery beer garden on the banks of the Rhein in Koblenz, the St Martin...
