    martymas

    Ohhh, I am so sorry to hear this. I loved Marty's quirky sense of humor, the way he started threads with "Hi Team," his compassion with donating fixed up computers to Seniors and his expertise. I will deeply, deeply miss him Liz

  16. Daughter requested a new printer for her Birthday/Christmas. She has an Apple Laptop (pretty sure its Leopard) She can "plug right in" at her work printer and she says it's an "IM"??? (IBM maybe? but its a big machine and likely expensive) She tried plugging into her brother's "elcheapo" HP and nothing happened. Just as well, he hoards his printer ink. She needs something simple--mainly to print College papers/occasional picture but probably not photos; and something that is not a big monster like her work printer--a desktop type. Doesn't need to scan, copy or make sandwiches. *I* need something that isn't expensive OH! And something very easy to set up--"plug and play" would be awesome. I know nothing about Macs and besides, I'm 50 miles away, and she's not a Geek. Thanks in advance! Liz

    New Cell Phone

    My rarely used cellphone is a "free with rebate" Tracfone, butttttt my kids have "real cellphones" and this is what I've learned so far: DO ask your neighbors about which companies work well in your area. Verizon works well here but my Sis in KY had lousy service with them. She is using Sprint? I think? and when she's here in MI she has bad reception problems. Kids went with Verizon solely because 90% of their friends had Verizon and members can call and text eachother free. The local Verizon Store is always packed and many folks have to wait 2 hours to get waited on. This can be alleviated by purely calling ahead and making an appointment (thanks to a savvy salesperson's advice!) Son had two phones that had lousy service, so that group of Verizon folks following you around depends on the phone you get........I suggest calling or visiting the Verizon store to see their phone recommendations. Son got good advice that way, and finally has a phone with good reception. Don't know what kind it is, but its the type where it shows numbers if opened upright and a keyboard if opened sideways..... Daughter looked into a Blackberry phone and decided against it because many of the features involved an extra $25 month charge. She gets free internet on campus and her apartment and has a laptop. She can internet and save $25month using the "old fashioned method".... Liz

    Printer Recommendations?

    Ummmm, okayyyy, real dumb question and I give you permission to laugh. I'm fine with that, lots of people laugh at me Looked online a bit and there were a couple HP printers that had a logo that was a blue square with two smiling faces smushed up against eachother. Is that the Mac logo? I know, I know, but I gotta double check! I HOPE she's keeping her idiotbox updated, but y'never know. Sigh. Liz

    Tsunami Warning

    You were the first person I thought of when I heard about that on the news, Marty. Glad you're in a safe area and hoping the waves are too small to do anything destructive Liz
