SashiX suggested I make this so here it is. So who browses from their mobile devices (even if only some of the time)?

99% of the time. I don’t even turn on my laptop any more.

Also, please, for the love of flashlights, don’t give me two popups every time I come to this site letting me know that you have tapatalk. I HATE that shiz.

If you ever read a post of mine that has “if” instead of “of”, you’ll know that my chubbies are pecking away at keys 1/4 their size. I’d love to get something with a larger screen but haven’t done it yet.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

Kindle Fire 68.44% of the time.

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

I just have a PC, no wireless stuff or carry around electronics. My phone is an old flip phone. I'm not technology orientated. Hell, I can't type on a regular keyboard yet.

Depends on who you're asking, for our purposes (whether a full res image should be posted) I would say yes but it is debatable.

I often browse on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus. It’s a 4” screen, so it’s still much smaller than a tablet, but larger than most phones. Pretty good really.

I adore keyboards with mechanical keys. I’ve been eyeing a DasKeyboard for a while.

TODO List:

Acquire more parts.

Devise cheap way to make TIRs.

Rub some bacon on it.

Finish something that I

Logitech MK300. Logitech M570 mouse. Yes they are "wireless", due to having a cat. Cats and cords don't mix.

I love that mouse. The wife has one too. Stopped most all of the pain in my hands and hers too.

4.7” screen (I have a Nexus 4, roughly the same size as your Galaxy Nexus screen).

That keyboard is nice but holy crap that’s expensive.

Quite often I check in through the day on a HTC One XL. 4.7” screen I think.

Can’t beat Apple keyboards, they are the best. If I need to write stuff, my Apple cordless KB goes with me too.

Sometimes I use a 7” tablet, a Samsung Galaxy 7.7

Otherwise at home I have an 11” Macbook Air on my lap while I watch TV and browse.

All have pretty high res screens, I can’t stand low res stuff anymore

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

Small screen? Does that include ipad. I’ve been using Ipad for over three years. My iMac hasn’t been turned on in years…just sitting there collecting dust. I do everything on my ipad.

95% Galaxy S2

Sometimes I get the .instead.of.spaces too. Also many beamshots are hard to tell apart (or even see) or I make some comment wrong about a picture that looks different on the small screen.

If not on the computer, I use my phone with a 4.5” screen.
I do not like typing on it though… moving the cursor to somewhere other than the end is a nightmare.

Welcome the night.

OK, I have sent a pm to SB, will try to find some plugins/filters for Drupal, so that % stuff will be activated automatically and will only downsize the image! So on big screens it will be shown with original resolution and will not fill the whole monitor. That’s the best solution I can see.

Unfortunately, that won’t be easy. The WIDTH=XX% tag that we can type in when attaching an image is a raw HTML tag. Unless something has changed with the HTML specification that I’m not familiar with, there is no MAX-WIDTH (or similar) tag. It would require actual processing on the server side (likely with Java feeding it the resolution of the client browser).

I don’t think it’s going to be a simple fix..

I am currently extremely busy with work. Please do not expect a response from me quickly. I will be dropping in as time permits, but the amount of time I can dedicate to responding to topics and PMs is very limited.

well, we can introduce the desired res manually then Flat Stare (if it can’t be done automatically). You will need to know the res of all your posted images but well, I will do it to all images myself just to not see all those supersized small images fitting my screen.

The only thing I’ve posted on a computer is my recent review, otherwise its all on my mobile. I have started using the photo tool to tailor size to 100% though rather than using the href link.
