  1. I have heard of a couple of tricks to stop the Canons from looking for the chip. I'll be testing this as soon as the ink runs low on my Pixma iP1600. I did locate the spots to refill the the color ink cartridge by tearing an old one apart. I am also working on making the printer recognize the oversize cartridges that fit in the printer. good going terrorist....please keep us informed of your progress as I'm planning to buy a printer.
  2. canon pixma ip1700 new printer.....$50 2 ink carts......$45 can't use generic carts with this printer as new canons have a computer chip that won't allow.
  3. thanks guys...life is so confusing....so many decisions...so little time.
  4. thank you terrorist. I downloaded the software you suggested. there's no hurry so I will look around for a while.
  5. ok..here is the scene. I had a free web page with homestead.com for at least 6 years...it's the one in my profile. I go in today and try to change stuff and find out it's not free anymore so I had no way to change stuff. you would think they could have told me that. well I called support and they said they THINK there was a way to help me. I said, I don't want no thinking, I want something that works. anyway I told them to cancel my account...got an email saying they will. now I need a place that's free where I can put my page. I just need a personal page with no fancy graphics or stuff. also I need a free program that with let my build a page with WYSIWYG. nothing fancy mind you. any suggestions????
  6. ok...I wasn't sure where to put this since it will be strictly opinionated. after 4 years my printer died. I like canon but understand that they will no longer accept 3rd. party cartridges so maybe I will have to change brands. http://forums.g4tv.com/messageview.cfm?cat...threadid=688081 I would like opinions on good printers below the $100 mark that has cheap cartridges. perferrably only 2 cartridgers...black...color. usb and winme compatible. this printer will be used 99.9% text.....not too concerned about photo printers. I sure would appreciate any help on this as my wife prints a lot of recipes. thank you.

    Vista

    I think windows vista is coming out this month. I was just wondering how many are gonna make the switch. I might have to find a place to hide for a few months til the shock wears off. people are gonna be begging me for a copy of winme. have a good day y'all.
  9. thanks jeff..I will change my resolution and see if that works. ok...changing to higher resolution fixed it. I'll live with it because I want to use 800x 600 resolution.
  10. hey I got a question. up on top where the little boxes are ..where it says BestTechie.net...IPB portal...Terms of use...etc. why does my little calendar box drop down in the lower box? is this because I'm using 800 x 600 resolution? do I need to post a screen shot?

  12. interesting reading here. now I'm not saying the guy is right or wrong but he has done a thorough study. http://minimopar.knizefamily.net/oilfilters.html#avoid
  13. this is where I have to go to walmart, lowes, and computer parts. http://www.cnn.com/2007/WEATHER/01/17/wint...t.ap/index.html
  14. marty...I can't speak for the rest of the country but the weather pattern in s.e. oklahoma is about normal for this time of the year. our coldest month is usually january and we get ice storms about every 4-6 years. the rest of the seasons are pretty much normal. we did have a very dry summer but that also happens occassionally.
  15. well all us rednecks are prepared for this stuff and everyone uses propane for heat so no problem. 4 1/2 inches of rain before it started freezing. 7 of those killed were illegals from mexico so they don't know any better. the older people are the ones we have to watch out for..they are most helpless and usually can't afford propane.
  16. I see "dune buggy material" written all over that truck. hmmm, let's see...first strip off the body...then shorten the frame 18" put some big "mudders" on the rear...get rid of the auto tranny..............yessssssssssssss
  17. 15 deaths blamed on ice storms 122,000 without electricity. trees on home and highways. bearskin without internet for 2 days. I understand it's headed your way yankees. have a good day.
  18. this is true believe it or not but I thought it belonged in the comedy section. there are weather tips fom our loal paper. "If you must travel try to stay off the highways." "always carry a container of DRY matches." so I will flap my arms and fly where I want to go. I will leave my box of wet matches at home. have a good day.
  19. woe is me....woe is me. the only thing that passed is my sound card and cd rom. looks like I'll have to stck with winme. I don't think that program works...it advised me to downgrade to win 3.1.
  20. thanks jsbowen.....I been working on that thing 5 years. with your help I finally got it. have a good day.
  21. well my page is supplied by Homestead.com. I downloaded their page maker and it has several forms..like textbox, picture, stuff like that for us non teckies. you place these on the page and move them where you want them. suppose to be easy but it won't let me add html....or maybe it's just me...
  22. The address isn't properly formatted. It should be: <a href=''http://www.firstpeople.us/''>first people</a> sorry about the typing error jsbowen. that's the way I typed it on the page...just like you did...I left out the// in this post. I just typed it in a text box..does that matter?
  23. ok.....this is what I wrote: <a href="http.www.firstpeople.us/">first people</a> where did I go wrong? <a href=''http.www.firstpeople.us/''>first people</a>
  24. thanks bubba...I tried it 10 different ways but never got it to work....to hell with it.
  25. ok...I need someone to tell me how to add a clickable link to my web site. obviously just typing in the web address just don't work. I will give you my first born son for help.
