    Yep, you're right about that. Another $470 and tax today so a bit expensive but, it works they say. Have a year warranty so that's good, though should really be till I sell it. But truth is, I do love the car, best I've ever owned I think.
    On another note, while at VW, stopped in to talk to one of the big guys and just asked about employment as a shuttle driver. My service advisor told me that one of their long term drivers had recently retired and it was a bit chaotic right now. So went to see the top guy. Mentioned that I've applied either 2 or 3 times in the past by filling out an application and giving it to him! I asked him outright is my using a cane a factor in their refusal to even acknowledge my previous attempts at employment. Explained that I've been a driver at Hertz for over 5 years now but the distance is starting to become an issue. Since I live not even 5 minutes from this store, it would work out better for me to work close to him. Told me to fill out another app and give it personally to him. Naturally when I was done, I did it within 20 minutes, he was gone and was told he'd stepped out of the office for "awhile". My vehicle was done about 0 minutes later and after I paid, walked by his office but still, he was gone.
    Not surprised one bit but we'll see. I could be a pain and keep going over there every few days but don't want to look like a nut so, will just wait and see if anything happens. I know my boss will give me a great rec if they do call and I know my cane is a negative, but I really do need it to walk at this point as my left leg is very weak from the injury. I need it for balance but driving is no problem for me.
    We'll just wait and see what happens.

    The new editor will be turned on tomorrow. No need to have you hold on to anything :) It's just a setting... and if someone left a penny in place of a circuit breaker and we see sparks, it can be switched off. If you DO have questions or see anything squirrely, use the Forums Feedback and Suggestions discussion so we don't have to dig to find them. Thanks

    Probably a good time for it. All of the functionality of my comment box is broken today. I cannot click on anything, though manual typing of html code works okay. That's not helpful for image uploads, though!

    Hey, I actually FINALLY had the Attach Image icon not work for me on my ipad this morning. Just didn't do anything. I backed up one screen, moved forward one screen and it worked again. Seems the the Comcast solution of, "Did you unplug the modem?" works for almost anything :)

    So far all seems to be working today for me. For now. But like you say entering the code works when clicking doesn't.

    The icons not working seemed SO random, but that ought to be behind us with the new editor. And on the odd chance that the issue crops up for some with the new editor, that will help narrow down possibilities as well. The expectation is that there won't be any issues, but in case something crops up, let us know!

    On a whim, I decided the time-honored "try a different browser" trick. Sure enough, works just fine in Chrome. However, I will say that I *always* use Firefox for this forum, and this is the first time having this issue.

    Firefox 67.0.2 here and no problems but I delayed a Windows 10 upgrade restart this morning which probably helps. If only for a while.

    Firefox here too and after several days of the pull-downs working fine, as of this morning they are on the fritz again.

    The only time I've had the icons not working, going "back" and then "forward" (essentially a refresh of the page) got them working again. Just a "for what it's worth".

    True, except they are extra-tiny, so readers will know you wanted to push some sort of expression their way, but not really know what or why. :p


    Edit: Apparently, lack of HTML functionality extends to auto-translation of emoji ASCII.

    I was looking for the poop emoji earlier but there were so many I did not find it.

    So far so good for me too, actually you all made it 100 times easier for me when typing to get into the edit box was a lot harder to prior updates, please don’t change just the way it is. And I was worried for what ha ha. Happy Friday everybody.

    @ send man, glad your car is good to go and fixed. Keep on fighting hopefully they’ll give you a chance this time when you submit your application for the third time, or use a different cane then you just for walking you know what blind people use. But keep on fighting I know it’s frustrating at times send man. And we are all in here to support you.

    @ entrées three, yes agree on your above posting hopefully you will have a repeat of that with any future car you buy what is no guarantee on anything like that in life. I hope you do end up keeping the Audi TT they would love so much.

  • marcogallo1986marcogallo1986 Posts: 846

    @ Andries three, that is I hope you don’t have a repeat of that with any future car, man but above posting makes me sound so horrible I wouldn’t wish that on anybody even my worst enemy. lol

    It’s bad enough when you go to Costco and end up with more than anticipated.

    It’s downright tricky when you take the Miata.

    Except for bad weather, do you take the Cutlass out to stretch its legs? I know you can’t or won’t do it year round.
