    Is there a way to add sound file support to the forums? Is there a module for Xenforo? Uploading something as simple as a 30 second wav file to as large as a 4m FLAC track could be cool. Please note my post about @Solarflair falling asleep on his keyboard with his PTT key down. Would have loved to directly upload that to the forums instead of hosting on vocaroo.

    Im surprised there was no post here about a Feat of Strength for the birthday of the Apple Mac computer the other day, Rent. You bring great dishonor to family.

    I forgot to list that I fixed the mobile double tapping bug while building Cactar 2.0, since it was from the ground up, it made finding the issue doable.

    Layout on iOS 7 devices is fine, not so sure about iOS 6 and below. If you're on iOS 7, tap refresh a couple times, that will fix it
