[smile] I have great news for those of you who would like to access the Tarawa Forum on your mobile phone on the road. We are in BETA 5 of our mobile site that will allow you to do just that, to access the forum on your phones!

I hope to see the mobile site done by the beginning of October. 

Also, I would like to have the mobile site allow us to chat WITHOUT JAVA. [nono] JAVA is not friendly to mobile devices. 

Soon you will be able to keep us in your pocket! What better way to find out what your shipmates are posting and the latest Tarawa News while you're waiting to order at your favorite restaurant then our mobile site.

Thanks for the offer Keith, but let's wait until October. We will be out of BETA and in with 1.0. There will be bugs to report in 1.0. You can then start using your phone to test it when 1.0 is released. I will have a section on the forum where users can list the bugs. The objective is to get to a solid 1.1. If you have an iPad or tablet, you will be able to use either the mobile site or the regular site. I can access the forum now with my iPhone. I just cannot use some of the bells and whistles like uploading a picture from my phone. With the mobile site, we will be able to upload pictures. I am hoping for chat on phones and tablets, too. It will be great to have a large group chat with others. I would like to host future guests in chat rooms. It would be interested in listening (reading) to guys like you and Charlie talk about your guns (Do you still call them weapons since you are retired from the Marines?) and your shooting and hunting stories. How cool would that be if we hosted someone from the NRA for a talk. Our chat room can hold 100 people. That would be a great chat session. There would be all kinds of exciting guest speakers we could have, AND the exciting part would be (hopefully) you could chat on your phone if you're not home by your computer.

Right on Rick, it might take a bit but I think it will work. There are so many guest options, that we could pursue.

Lets keep after it.

[crazy] Is it driving you crazy waiting for the release of our mobile site? We should have it ready to go sometime next week! It is going to be a lot easier to check-in and see what's going on around the ship with your shipmates very soon.

[wave]Hang in there!

Our mobile site is up and running! Pick up your smart phone and give it a try. I think the UI is easy to understand. What do you think?

Please report any bugs in the bug reporting forum.
