Just got my first iPhone.

It's coo and all, but every time I go to The D-Word, it automatically fills in – and then it says that there is no page at the address.

Try as I might, I cannot get the browser to go to, it always puts in that /iphone.html

Surely, people use the D-wrod on the the iPhone – what is the deal?

Bill Jackson

Hmm. I mostly use my iPhone. That never happens here (iPhone 4).

Ben Kempas

Never heard of this. Can you override the auto-fill?

Jason Osder

Yeah, I had to really trick it by typing in a full URL to the login page. Once I was logged in, everything was good. I guess this has something to do with setting up the funky network at my school, but I thought just maybe that there was some platform sniffing script malfunctioning.

Thanks, Ben :)

my heart bleeds for you i-phone operators. My Nokia C-3 fills in nothing, usually rings when someone calls me and has survived my muddy fingers for almost a year. You too can have one for just £30

I don’t have too many mission-critical tasks for my mobile, but posting on D-Word during SilverDocs to meet up with people for a late night meal at the Tastee Diner is one of them.

So I apologize for the goofy-ness of this question, but do you all have recommendations for newbies to this site for reading the topics on The D-Word. Do you:
A) Go back to page 1 on a topic and start reading from there?
B) Start from the most recent post and read backword?
C) Go back a few days and just start from there?

In some cases the topics go back a few years and I'm wondering if it makes sense to spend the time reading things that could very well be outdated now.

Just looking for some friendly advice.

Hi, I just tried to embed a link on the Works in Progress page but got an invalid URL error. It was a Vimeo link and I was pasting the actual URL and not the embed code.

John Burgan

I think that's just you, Jason – not getting that here.

Ajay, I have forwarded your point to our webmaster Peter as there is definitely a problem there.
