To do a hard reload on Chrome hold down the shift key and click on reload (circular arrow near upper left). If you get a menu select "hard reload".

Re: Test Post for dBoard 4.2
However, I do miss Ms. Stone (from one of her better roles) covering half my screen.
It's a conspiracy, I tells ya! Making me equal with everybody else! I should be free to wallpaper everybody's screen!

Come all of you cowboys all over this land,
I'll teach you the law of the Ranger's Command:
To hold a six shooter, and never to run
As long as there's bullets in both of your guns.

Yep, the quote worked just fine, Dredge. Now you can take your new misunderstanding and go out and clobber someone.
Just remember, the concept of "prove" is relative.

iStock images cannot be used by other websites. Attempts to access them by other websites are refused. They charge for their photos, so making them freely available would be counterproductive for them:

Thanx. I'm trying to figure out how to include images from Internet in my posts (on mobile/cell phone) ... so far without success.

Here's an example of how to do it on an iPhone, and hopefully Android is similar.
  1. Tap the image in a way that brings up the menu. On iPhone this means tap and hold.
  2. If there's a "copy link" option then click that, but on the iPhone you'll see a "Create Link" option. Click that and you'll get a number of image options, but below that will be a readable list of options. Click "Copy".
  3. Go to the message box where you're entering the reply. Enter your [img][/img] dBCodes in the correct spot, then in between the [img] and [/img] dBCodes click in a way that brings up a menu. On an iPhone that means clicking twice. Select the "Paste" option. This will enter the image URL between the [img] codes.
So many options or easy alternatives are missing on phones and tablets that are available on laptops or desktops. To do the same thing as above on a laptop you right click on the image and select "Copy image address" then go to the message box, right click, and select "Paste".
Another example. With Apple Music the "search" function doesn't exist on an iPhone. I just love scrolling to "You've lost that loving feeling" in a list of 3000 songs. On a laptop you search for it (typing "you've" is usually enough), or you can make the song title column display in reverse order, bringing it near the top.
Cell phones do a great job for so many things, like sending texts and taking and sharing images, but I don't understand the attraction of cell phones for doing or saying anything meaningful or lengthy.
For the dinosaurs among us, cell phones can also be used as actual phones.
AbE: You can sort a normal playlist on an iPhone, but not a smart playlist. There's no search function for either type of playlist.

"This phone sucks! All it's good for is making calls!"

Until i googled it a few minutes ago, I thought a cell phone was any mobile phone, including a smart phone. But it seems a cell phone is not a smart phone.
In Australia, no one uses the term, "cell phone" ... we use the term, "mobile phone", and it could refer to a smart phone or an old-fashioned dumb phone (which are just about extinct).
