It has come to my attention that e-mail subscribers to this website in the USA and Europe (and maybe elsewhere?) have experienced some technical issues with articles while trying to read them on their mobile phones. The problem seems to be that some of the illustrations and captions in an article shift to the right and look like they are ‘cut’ or ‘falling out’ of the screen. (See above screenshot from yesterday’s obituary of Sam Mackenzie.)
Consulting my ever reliable and technical savvy HTBS IT staffer, Mrs B., on this matter, she informed me that there are so many variables of how this can occur on your phone: iPhone or Android, which version of the operating system is your phone running, what e-mail app are you using, when was it last updated? There is no one-size-fits-all solution.
I’m afraid, there is no way I can send the HTBS articles differently to your e-mail addresses that would solve this problem. However, this being said, there is an easy way to read the HTBS articles on your mobile phone without them being ‘cut’. While you are looking at the e-mail version of the article, please click on the blue coloured headline (see red arrow in the screen shot on top). This will take you to the HTBS website where you can read the article without any technical problems.
Let me also take the opportunity to thank you readers for being loyal visitors to this website. As long as you read, we will write.
