Mum and Grandmother, supporting my son who has residency of his son.
I want to see a much fairer system in place, where Dads and their children have a voice that can be heard.
There are many groups of people that have equal rights within our society and its about time Dads were given equal rights too.

this is like the beginning of all good parties - they always start slow and the early arrivals always wonder if anyone else is going to turn up, then an hour later when all the drunks have arrived.................... :pinch:

I recon that even if you were texting every member there would only be a slow response to those texts.

Needing to be online in a forum is a little more inconvenient than scribbling a text (yes, i use the swype keyboard and love it)

Have swype on my tablet and find I spend half my time correcting the words it's come up with, but love the concept - hopefully I can get it on my next phone.

i had to stick with it.
Instead of 'aiming' for the correct letter (and making a wiggly path which then got interpreted as 'typing'), I now just lurch my finger around the general direction that i think the letter is. this gives good results.
so, instead of 'thinking' about where the letters ARE, I aim for where my brain believes they should be.

i would SOOO love to just send some texts with the predicted words - I do occasionally - and then send the correct word in a seperate text immediately after: makes for fun reading

it's a way of typing on touch screens -instead of tapping the keys, you move your finger between the keys without lifting your finger off (when you lift off, it's the end of the word) - you don't have to be that accurate as to where the keys are, the program interprets what you want. When you get the hang of it, it can be very good.
