  1. No biggie Sly. I suffer from CRS more often than I care to admit myself. Keep telling the wife I'm lucky if I remember what I did ten minutes ago let alone a week ago.. :D

  2. sorry bout that thread I said was old .don't know what I did but was sure what I looked at was from 2011 feb. Must be too old for this stuff;; brain starting to play tricks on me. just wait til you hit 84 ;you will know what I Mean. will be more careful from now though. hago.

  3. I picked up a Microsoft Life Cam vx or vm 2000 for 14 bucks at office depot. they were closing them out. has great little mic included & works like a charm.Went & bought 3 more for wife ;son & daughter

  4. I rarely turn Skype on anymore. I should try to find out what happened to my web cam but it's been so long since I used it theres no telling where in might be. But I've never had Skype set up to use with a web cam, plus my sister borrowed my headphones/mic and I couldn't do anything except hear without being heard. I'll keep it in mind if I ever set it up to use properly. Thanks for the invitation, nice to know someone is willing to speak. :)

  5. Hey Bama;; just a quickie to let you know my Skype addy is kmafra83 if you want to add me on

  6. Happy Birthday will tip a small scotch in your honor today

  7. Just trying to pass the time and catch up with a few of the regulars to see how you're doing. I see your posts now and then but it doesn't tell much about you personally. Unlike me you seem to be able to stay on topic. I think I'll mix me a screwdriver an have a sip in your honor. I know scotch is your flavor but it doesn't taste good with oj. :)

  14. Not sure. What browser (and version) is this? I'll see if I can duplicate the issue. Thanks for the heads up.

  15. Dave;encountered a wierd problem;maybe you can explain. I log on to fine ;I choose a catagory'ie networking for example; I'll read a couple of the problems & then hit the backspace arrow( upper left corner) nothing happens ;it will not back space.I then click the down arrow right of the arrows to bring up page history & it says I have been on" x" the only way I can back up to pctechbytes is click the down arrow & hilite that site. Have checked for malkware & virus;; found nothing. any ideas why I can't back arrow on this site. no problem on other sites' I don't use facebook at all here, n ay to clear your comments.
