    You broke it just then for a minute or two by mentioning it! :D

    Couldn't manage without it now, although on the main Mac it's only one of several MR windows I have open when I'm paying full attention to what's going on here. I marvel at times how quickly it can move too; sometimes it's hard to hit those links.

    I wonder if it's also been responsible for a change in posting styles although that's hard to quantify. When it was first being tested, I couldn't get used to it and told Arn so. :eek:

    I use it once in a while but I'm still a New Posts kind of guy.

    I can only halfway keep up if I exclude a large number of forums (currently 28). I watched Spy without exclusions a couple times over the weekend and it was insane...

    spy.macrumors.com is almost impossible to use on an iPhone. :D
    By the time you hit the right line it has jumped down and you end up opening the wrong thread…

    since i'm not always active on the MR tab i still use the 'new posts' button, which works well enough for my needs.

    Ok, so I had to look up "sycophants"...

    (sycophant |ˈsikəfənt; -ˌfant|
    noun
    a person who acts obsequiously toward someone in order to gain advantage; a servile flatterer.


    But I still am confused? Was that aimed at my comment (which was a joke) or am I just paranoid? :confused:
