VPNs anonymize you by allowing you to surf the Web in disguise (as operating from an IP address other than your actual one). It's a convenient service for folks who wish to operate anonymously - including hackers and spammers.... Genuinely went through all of these options, before...
...realising I was still using a VPN app tried out this morning...
This post submitted under, 'Known Issues' and just a note to alert - took ages to figure out.
No smileys, because it wasn't funny!
Thank you! I didn't quite realise this - it was a trial to access a music video from outside the UK and prohibited unless resident in that country.VPNs anonymize you by allowing you to surf the Web in disguise (as operating from an IP address other than your actual one).

I was just reading a poston this forum on my phone in bed, i moved and the screen went from portrait to landscape, nothing unusual there, what was unusual was that a photo of an old football game appeared under one of the posts that definately isnt anything to do with the post and definately isnt there in portrait layoutYup, I have read posts where the writer has looked online for somewhere to share a weird experience with people who'll listen without judging. Also, unless people are really uncreative with their usernames/avatars it's anonymous.
I've been here nearly from the start and found the board after searching for the magazine.
???? ... Do you mean:I've been banned from this site at work due, I assume, to my Trump comments. Ahahaha.
It's almost certainly a security issue.I'll have to check tomorrow, but it definetly says "banned", and I can't access this site.. Every other site is accesssible .I'm assuming it's my workplace blocking me. My comments were regarding a friend who was a supporter of the riot plus a like on someone elses remarks
That's McAvennie's avatar/sign off he always put at the bottom of his post (may not do so anymore) and his post followed the one from ben77. So I guess it would be only viewable in landscape.I just found a very perculier image right here in these halliwed halls, i was reading a post in the 'childhood memories thread on my phone whilst laying in bed, i shifted positions my phone switched from portrait to landscape, nothing unusual there, what was unusual was that a photo of an old football match appearded at the end of a post that had no relavence to the post or the thread and is only visable when viewed in landscape
This is the view in portrait

And this is the image with the hidden photo when viewed in landscape

Now im wondering how many other hidden photos there are here
I have literally (and I mean literally) absolutely no idea what you're saying. I can read the words but my brain refuses to acknowledge or comprehend any of it! Maybe now isn't the time for me to retrain as a coder (like I know what a coder is!).Just tried to use a unicode emoticon in a post but it didn't make it to the published post. As XenForo supports full unicode I suspect this means that the forum's database tables are using an encoding that doesn't support full unicode, probably MySQL with utf8 - for full unicode support the tables should use utf8mb4. Maybe something to consider when next the forum is upgraded.
Guess what? I received the notif of your response almost instantly FFS. The bloody hamster is playing up again Mildred!Mine are arriving almost in batches, similarly going an hour or three on between despite subbed threads being active in the meantime. I should probably know what's going on, but I don't.
The threads on this forum have always had a tendency to be discursive and meandering - punctuated by digression, flights of fancy, hairpin tangents, videos of yodelling dogs and a whole lot of seriously atrocious puns.I get these emails saying there's a new comment on the Forum and I think someone has something to say about
