I'm getting very bad print on the forum here ,but I'm using a new tablet I bought from Aldi Google News is ok and the print seems fine.
Never had this issue on my old devices so it maybe just this tablet,? Any ideas?
Pete

Can you take a photo of your tablet's screen and post it here (maybe put it on Imgur and link it here)?

Oh don't know G, I will try. The print is out of focus...I'm sure it's the tablet ,but it's not liking this site for some reason and computers are not my strong area that's for sure. Google News is ok and eBay is ok too

Fixed it, the Tablet had a long delay in focusing, so I just use it on large print. It's only a cheap Tab,,,,50 bucks on special at Aldi. Can't expect it to be high quality .......all good , it will do , pete

Yes, it's showing for me.

I don't use tablets or smart phones myself. They have their benefits but I don't need the associated hassles.

All browsers have a zoom function though God only knows how one manages it on a tablet. If you zoom 'over' the OS's recommended amount the resolution does look blurry, even on this old laptop. I think the Windows default is 80%.

If your avatar is externally hosted, it may be due to an issue with the host if it's not displaying but it is at the moment.

Hi Brad and G,
The Avatar is there today. Yes a Tablet is just a toy really and it's nothing like a computer , but it will do for awhile. I can access the forum ok and I have it working a little better now. It's much harder on the eyes than a computer ,but I'm keeping in mind it was 50 bucks and I don't intend using it long term.
Pete
