Hi gang. Is there any way of getting access to my old account @scruff ? 

 

I haven't got access to the email address I used to sign up all those years ago.

Yes! We can change the old email address for your previous account scruff to your preferred email, if you would prefer to re-use that one instead of MR SCRUFF. You'll not be able to keep multiple accounts open though, so will need to choose which one you want to use and which to retire. Just let one of the Mods know what you want to do here (by PM is ideal)and we'll make the necessary changes for you.

I'm struggling to respond to topics via my phone.

Using Android 11 and Chrome.

 

When I type in the reply box, one of two things happens:

1. The editor freezes - can't scroll up or down.

If I press space, it flicks down to the correct spot, and will allow me to type before hanging again

2. I start to type. And the page displays another tab I have open ( demonstrated in the screenshot below)

When this happens I can't see the reply box at all.

I have cleared cookies and it stops doing it for about 3/4 replies then starts again.

 

It's a right pain

any ideas?

 

Thanks

Using Chrome on Linux. Sometimes it "double posts", that is when I check after submitting a reply, there are 2 answers there, so I delete one of them. Cannot submit pictures at all. If I try Firefox, it does not usually accept it.  Firefox regularly crashes.   For pictures and other uploads, I go to the old Windows 7 desktop, and use Firefox, Edge, or Chrome. They all work there. Is it that the AS site does not like Linux Ubuntu ?

Been having a bit of trouble with notifications recently, not sure if anyone knows what's going on. For some reason when I receive a PM I don't get a notification or email about it, but sometimes I do. If I click into the inbox when this happens, it doesn't show an unread message, I have to go into the conversation to find there is a message I haven't seen yet. 

Any ideas from anyone if it's a setting I've got wrong or something?

I have exactly the same issue, although I mostly use tapatalk and apparently it is the apps problem.

Strangely works perfectly on every other forum I visit.


Could it get any worse?

Anyone else been getting connection errors lately? Last couple of days, every 2nd or 3rd time I navigate here, I get 'Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT'. Only happens on this site. (Firefox if that makes any difference)

Firefox keeps crashing for no apparent reason, on any site, including AS, microsoft outlook to name but 2.  Most of the crashers sites seem to have a fair few pictures.  Running Linux if that is significant.

For some reason I always had issues with FF on Linux, even if it didn't crash it was always slow and clunky, and I ended up using either Opera or one of the Chromium derivatives instead. Seems to work fine with Win10 though.

Not sure if there is a technical problem thread, but I’ve noticed that since the last update yesterday that posting comments to threads seems to take a long time? Regardless of if it’s just text or a mixture of things, I press the button and it stays on Saving for a while.

Not been on my laptop to check, but I’ve noticed it a lot on my iPhone.

This has just started happening to me. Did you get to the bottom of it?

Using Google Chrome as well

This happens every single time I come here now. Usually if I spam 'Retry' about 10-12 times it eventually connects, but sometimes it just flat out refuses. It could be an issue at my end, but I've no idea what.

I have problems with that when I have logged in, I have to close the browser (Chrome) and bring it up again and so go to this page again to be able to write/post something. This is on a computer, on the phone and on a tablet I am logged out when I do the same as on a computer, so I can't post anything from these.

Has anyone experienced anything similar?

Dunno if this has been asked, but... Sometimes if I click into a thread for 'first unread post', it takes me way back past that point, sometimes even back to the top of page one. Deeply irritating on some long threads, as I sail past the likes I gave years ago! Any ideas? (Kindle/Silk browser btw)

      Having recently had some tussles with a dead BMW ECU, I thought this was really interesting:
      https://www.ifixit.com/News/52123/the-coming-battle-over-hacking-your-own-car
      Especially how the guy managed to update to a newer version of Ford Sync enabling CarPlay.
      I am tempted to really learn this side of 'shiteing' as well as mechanics.

      Hi all,
      Apologies for the downtime, there was some routing issues with our hosting provider which meant the server was cut off from the outside world. I'm finding out what went wrong and how we can avoid a repeat.

      A proper shite 90s jet ski just came up by me and I’m sorely tempted. Looks like a decent version of the year, a seadoo spi.
       
      Seems rotax powered which I remember from my karting days and I’m hoping to go and see it tomorrow. Looks like a two cylinder carb fed job.
       

       
      Anyone played with them?
       
      As usual the engines in bits and it’s missing the jet whatever that is. Presume where the prop fires water down?
       
      Are there any rules to it’s use or can I just get it running and blast about on it on the local water and lochs?

      So I’ve held off here for a month now but I’m stuck and need advice.
       
      Some of you might remember I had a Golf Turbo estate for sale in Jan. Well I sold it to Exiled_Tat_Gatherer and he paid for it with the intention of collection.
       
      But, I haven’t had a message off him in nearly 4 weeks now and I’ve messaged loads. I’ve phoned him and got voicemail. Now I’m not trying to muddy the lads credibility at all, he’s done his bit but I’m worried about not being able to get in touch.
       
      He’s in Belgium and intended to fly over and collect. I’m aware he bought numerous other cars off here and wanted to collect them all in a oner but he’s now not posted in ages.
       
      What the hell do I do? I really need the car shifting but he’s paid for it. I can’t store it forever and I’m still paying tax on it so it can be legal for him to collect.
       
      Really stuck. Any advice appreciated. I’m erring towards selling it on and refunding him if I can get hold of him but don’t want to be the arsehole.
       
      Sorry if this isn’t the way to do things but I’m really at a loss.
