Subject: Concertina ergonomics again
From: Guran
Date: 26 Oct 15 - 03:32 PM

A newcomer to the concertina.net forums daringly calling himself "Bullethead" has just presented some thought-provoking threads:

http://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=18123
http://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=18156

which very much connects to the since 25 years everlasting advocating from myself concerning various ergonomic flaws with all the common concertinas - anglos, duets, englishes - despite their attractive format which deceitfully makes people believe they are easy to hold and handle.

I warmly sympathize with Bullethead of course wishing him luck to convince the conservative concertina community that *something* might be done to facilitate handling their instruments and to make them more suitable for various kinds of performance. He is verbal and humorous and first of all speaks/writes *english*- which I do not as a scandinavian alien - something I willingly adopt as an excuse and possible explanation that for all these years I have not succeeded in the mission reforming concertinas and converting the users of them to some modern belief...

I do recommend you all to follow those c.net threads.There is a chance they will turn out as eye-openers for some....

You could turn the URL addresses into hot links (using the "blue clicky" maker below). 😊

I can't cut and paste on my phone so can't access the threads.

Many thanks FreddyHeadey !
Can you please instruct me how it is done ?
I went to the new window by the "make a link" link but couldn't make it work after writing the url and name of the link

'GUEST'...
It doesn't always work for me either. Usually I've forgotten the http:// bit.

I think you need to make sure it starts(without the gap between < a)
< a href="http://   
then the link(not always a www.) ending with the ">
then the text(or, as above, a repeat of the url - at least that shows where your link is heading) ending (without the gap < /)
< /a>

I suspect there is a better description somewhere.

Web people.... on my tablet I find the Make a link ("blue clicky") quite a struggle.
If you're ever rejigging that page then bigger gaps between the boxes would be a real boon.

If the resulting link was in a box it might be easier to copy too. Sometimes it goes off the screen so I'm not sure I've copied it all properly.
