Improvements To CT


1. Create the option to have a "night" setting where the background goes black and the text can be user color-selected (invert). I have to dim my iPad pretty low to not keep my wife awake. TIA

I'm very lucky that way my wife wouldn't wake up if a bomb went off. I can be sitting in bed telling her something and all of a sudden she will be snoring and didn't hear a damn word I said.

How sweet, you just want to have a pillow talk with a fellow contractor...

If anything, I would make my screen brighter so I can wake my wife up if she is near me, could never hurt to sharpen your pencil a few extra times

I have an infinity higher closing rate when bidding a job. If I wake her I'm more likely to get a black eye.

Re: Improvements To CT


I always liked how when selecting a topic off the main forum list it would take you to first unread post.

Thanks for the "go to first new post" button in the individual forums.
How long has that been there?

Somehow I missed the forced survey on that one.

Thanks again,
D.

It wasn’t forced – you could have quit and gone to another forum
