  1. I went to the Sprint Call Center today in the Albuquerque suburb of Rio Rancho. I thought I may be able to sniff out some LTE there like the one near Denver. Sadly, I did not encounter any LTE. I even went inside. But I did discover eHRPD. At first, I thought the eHRPD was just at the Call Center. But it appears to be throughout the ABQ metro area. I drove all over Rio Rancho and the ABQ west side changing sites more than 10 times, and I'm still on eHRPD. Looks like we are eHRPD live now. I took several screen shots. Performance is identical to EVDO-A when connected to the same sites. As expected, the site where I get 2Mbps+ site speeds (at Unser and Paradise on the west side) is still just as fast on eHRPD. But I always get those speeds there. Robert on Samsung Galaxy S-III via Tapatalk
  2. We have started a new thread for KAW-DAW. The previous thread is over 7,000 entries and has been closed. It ran for three years! If you've never played Keep a Word, Drop a Word before, it is really simple. See below... Example Post 1: customer satisfaction Example Post 2: tough customer Example Post 3: tough break Example Post 4: break wind Comprendo? See, it is really simple. For each new post just keep a word from the previous post and drop the other and replace with a new one. Please KEEP your posts to JUST 2 WORDS, but if you are stuck and must to, you can include a "helper" word, like: a, the, an, etc. BUT the next post CANNOT use that "helper" word as the one they keep for the next post. You can however use the same "keep" word as the previous poster if you want to. Otherwise just have fun with it and let's see where it goes? If things get stalled out just start a new line of thought by making a new 2 word saying. I will kick off the game below...

    IP Board is putting S4GRU in the queue to have the site upgraded to its newest version. We currently operate in the 3 series. We will be upgrading to the 4 series. We likely will not have much notice when this happens. If I am given a timeframe, I will post it. But we are currently in an upgrade queue. Once IP Board techs begin the actual migration and upgrade process, S4GRU will be temporarily offline. This will take several hours. When it goes back online, it will likely look very, very different. Not necessarily in a good way. The upgrade will remove most of the S4GRU custom formatting, if not all of it. Also, some of the functionality, like Tapatalk, may not work at all initially. Side banners, tabs, navigation...I mean nearly everything may be screwy, not working right, in a new location or completely missing. Once it's back online, I will spend most of the effort of time on usability and content access. Making sure all the critical parts of the site are functional. Then I will start working on formatting. Working on colors, logos, etc. The content will all be there. Don't need to worry about Wall posts, forum posts or messages being destroyed. But you may not be able to get to it the way you're used to. And it may look very generic initially. The new upgrades will allow more customization and keep us current with all security and spam features. Our old version was no longer supported. I apologize in advance for any inconveniences. I may solicit some help too, if required. As I am very busy at work right now. I wish we had more information on the impacts, but every site takes them differently. We will be surprised and adjust as required. Blessed are the flexible! Robert

    Do you recall what you were doing right before the initial block?

  7. Yeah, the -110dBm is your received strength. The received strength at the site of your phone call may be far worse. And synchronous quality is vital in a phone conversation. It's not unusual for a device to have good Rx performance, but not necessarily Tx, especially at weaker signal strengths. Your device may be a poor transmitter on B41. Or there may be a lot of B41 noise. Because of this, B41 may not be a good solution for VoIP. But may be better for VoLTE, as the network QoS could control priority of your call and shunt you to a better band if required. VoIP treats the call as data packets, the same as everything else. And when minimum synchronistic standards are required, this could be a problem in many individual circumstances regarding signal quality/strength and hardware. Robert

    I'm thinking the avatar issue was the primary cause of the loop that was getting us blocked. But there is likely other Tapatalk code that is used less often than the avatar that is also causing a loop. Since Tapatalk admitted they have been building their app on lots and lots of old code, there could be many issues there. From here moving forward, try to keep track of what activities are happening preceding any new blocks. Maybe we can detect a trend to help them focus on another solution. Thanks! Robert
  9. You guys don't get it's all just a joke based completely on the image? It's not related to something specific in the news. The V and R are burned out. Multiple outages. Get it? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    I haven't been blocked all week so far. I don't use Tapatalk on my home wifi though. Don't want to get blocked where I work on S4GRU the most. I only have been using it on work WiFi, public WiFi and LTE. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Yeah, I moved from South Dakota March 10, 2016. I want to say it had been up like 6 mos. before I even left. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    I've always kept mine disabled. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    This is frustrating beyond all get up. Tapatalk!!! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Which version of Tapatalk? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Do you have Tapatalk installed on any other devices? I uninstalled off of all of mine first and then tried on one. I still haven't had the block, yet. But I have gone several days before. And it's only been 24 hours for me. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    I don't want to jinx it, but so far I have made it all day without a CloudFront block. Maybe, just maybe, disabling the Show Avatar workaround might just do the trick. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    I think disabling the "Show User Avatar" setting might be a workaround. IP Board reported that the loop occurs in the Avatar code. It may exist elsewhere too, but it's worth a try. I disabled it early this morning and so far no problems. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    I reinstalled Tapatalk, and get blocked within 10 minutes. Uninstalled...

    I'm not seeing it, yet. Says 10/19 update for me. I'll keep looking for it. Robert

    Thanks for the heads up. I've updated the plugin to version 1.4.6 just now. Let's see what happens!
