Now, Limey, I'm not sure about that. Frank did you get a glimmer of an Elvis spirit?

Welcome home.

I keep meaning to learn Skype.

My reason for having a laptop was to upload pics to the web 3 or 4 times a week. That way, I'm not dependent upon my computer or memory card.

Keep us posted.

what you mean learn Skype have you looked at it I think it is a great thing like I said earlier we use it every day when we are away it saves on long-distance calls and if you have a WebCam and the person you are talking to has one you can see them and they can see you just like being at home take a look at it won't hurt :idea:

My computer of more or less 2003 vintage is being bitchy. Ran Adaware last night came up with 4 serious problems.

Doing my spring and summer thing of keeping up the raptors: http://www.wvec.com/marketplace/microsite-content/eagle-cam.html

seems to chew up memory.

As does looking at buddy''s videos, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iasRaCKf25U

& then the computer slows down.

I'm pretty well out of things to try. Got any ideas.

Frank, reformatting is beyond me. I was shown that before I retired. But you see I had the advantage of having Dr. Bob and Dr. Nancy have a look at my computer every so often because I used it for work from home often and often. I had stuff on my computer so I could deal with it as it came along Or, you might say 1/2 hour in the morning at home got tons of stuff done faster than when lots of other souls were around. I depended upon work IT. & I retired in 2008.

The computer has had 2.75 years to ...... & the demands of the technology have gone up.

Anyway, I'm choosing Staples for a check up, having moved provinces when I retired. Tomorrow for a diagnostic and buy what parts it needs. Staples had a good reputation for those with no technical connections in the place I moved from.

Wish me luck. Might go looking at SLR cameras for fun while the diagnostic is happening.

Have laptop. On it now. Rusty about it.

Swearing.

Ok, tech said to upgrade this laptop and it's vista, I'd have to go to Windows 7 Op system. Do you know any different?
