    While our site is not located in Europe,we do have a number of European members so our attorney recommended we update our software and enable GDPR support.

    The software has been updated to support GDPR and now I must finish enabling GDPR support, when done you will probably have to accept our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy to make us compliant.

    As always when these system updates happen sometimes other things break, so if you see anything strange please let me know.

    As always THANK YOU for your support and for being part of the SatelliteGuys Family.

    Accepted terms, but only by coming to the site on a browser, tapatalk doesn't load the forum if you haven't accepted them yet.

    Tapatalk is pretty much guaranteed to behave poorly with changes to the forum software or configuration.

    Is it now necessary to enable cookies to use the site?

    Given that the deadline for compliance was May 25th, it shouldn't be surprising that they had a ready solution. Then again, this is the first site that I've visited since the GDPR compliance campaign began that made me read and acknowledge the T&Cs.

    If I come to the site now I see a message about cookies and it wants me to affirm it before proceeding. I can bypass it but it seems if there was some change in policy. Perhaps not.

    Combo Peanut butter-Chocolate Chip cookies are like Snickers candy bars: Once you've had one, why bother with any other kind?
