Strange. Updated iPhone 5C and iPad Mini Retina to iOS 8. Upgraded Apple TV to OS 7.0. I can only control the Apple TV with my iPad and not my iPhone! Strange …

Just watched PT. 1 of WP app for iOS. Made me realize that I've only used WP iOS app on my iPhone to check stats and notifications. I'll have to give it a bash on the iPad.

Thanks, Don.

It seems that some of the 'older' iOS Apps (BlogPress) struggle to post to a self-hosted site.

Something to do with an XML setting that was removed on WordPress 3+

Has anyone got a 3rd party iOS app post to a self-hosted site yet?

Thanks.

Half of my .FLAC files (and their backups) have corrupted. Any way to fix this?

I subscribed and downloaded the 'play on HDTV' versions to my iOS devices. It's worked fine for years. But I went to watch an iOS tutorial on my HDTV today, I had a truncated view of the tutorial. Decided that something was corrupted, so I went to resubscribe. It refused.

Tried to do it manually, it claims that I'm already subscribed. Been following Don since the dawn of time and have never run into this trouble. (And if you're thinking that I've downloaded the mobile sized files, they're not even filling my iPad Mini's screen! Ideas?

The AppleTV remotes (on either iOS device) won't let me choose channels. The app launches but that's about it.

I've performed hard restarts and replacing the apps but to no avail. Any ideas?

Thx in advance.
 
Impressive list! Overwhelming and well overdue!

Yes, they both see the AppleTV. And the Menu buttons work. But you can't scroll. And for whatever reason, the multi-colored background on the iPhone app went black.

I've also had my selection of podcasts remove themselves twice. Should Perhaps reset the AppleTV? It would seem to be the main common thread.

As impressive as Hyperlapse, I fail to see what void it fills. It appears more a novelty than anything else.

My $.02USD.

Not so much the difficulty as the results :) we'll see if anything comes of it!

I'm wheelchair bound and have trouble reaching the back of my external HDDs. Result: Lots of cord clutter. Haven't an idea how to fix this situation and haven't found any helpful sites. Any ideas?

Wish that there was something that I could do with a lazy Susan …

Almost forgot, regarding the job situation. I have won many awards for writing music and a national award, accompanied with two other 'partners,' were we represented the United States in Industrial Video world competition. Unfortunately, the company broke up. They formed a new one behind my back and then tried to subcontract me, performing the exact same work but not sharing in the profits.

Such is life. Have a great day,

Frank

I'm in a wheelchair and have a heck of a time trying to reach the peripherals on my desk. It becomes really difficult for me to plug in my externals. Can't reach!

Haven't any possible handicapped workstation layouts through Google. Anyone know of any resources.

Thx.
