    Invidividuals are allowed to shoot off their own fireworks (restricted
    to their own property or with permission, etc.) -- New Year's Eve hours
    were 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., so relatively noisy last night. There were a
    couple of local countdowns: boom! ...boom! ..boom! ....boom! Pop-pop-POP-pop-boom-popPOPpppop!

    ...Ummm, you didn't say where to leave the message so it's on your side
    stoop; I put a rock on it so it wouldn't blow away. Should be easy to
    find. ...If you don't get this message let me know.

    Howdy Barry,
    After taps on two of the icons at the bottom of your post I am able to make a reply here.

    Using Web Based BBS Forums is new to me.
    In the past I've always used FTP to grab and send messages.
    Then read everything offline with MultiMail.
    So logging on this way is all new to me.
    The other new thing here is this Android phone which shows icons that don't have CAPTIONS under them to tell me what they are for.
    I will have to go to the Library and find an Android Phone Book to help me get around this device.
    I don't know how long I will be in Kindergarten Stage before I'm able to use this thing like I see many others use their cellphone to get information.

    Hi Ed!

    I thinkthis is a new message: over the weekend my hard drive decided it
    had too many bad clusters or something and so 'good bye, cruel world!".
    Good news: had a spare hard drive in stock. Also found restoring a
    disk's worth of files isn't as easy as clicking [restore].


    After taps on two of the icons at the bottom of your post I am
    able to make a reply here.

    <chuckle> Yup: those buttons sometimes need to be configured --
    sometimes that's configuring the computer, sometimes the human!

    Yes: each method has it's good points and bad points, so need to find
    what works for you. And as a sid enote i thing FTP is being depreciated
    in favour of SFTP (Secure File Transfer Proocol)


    The other new thing here is this Android phone which shows icons
    that don't have CAPTIONS under them to tell me what they are for.
    I will have to go to the Library and find an Android Phone Book
    to help me get around this device.

    This came up with a friend: both of us sometimes get confused by those
    pictures -- give me words!! "Click on the hamburger"!! I don't see any
    food on the screen -- maybe go to the McDonald's site?? <g> (The
    'hamburger' is the three horizontal lines, something like .)

    And I think what you're calling 'captions' are called 'labels', though
    captions to me is more accurate.


    I don't know how long I will be in Kindergarten Stage before I'm
    able to use this thing like I see many others use their cellphone
    to get information.

    Personally I rarely use my cell phone for getting infromation: for me a
    lot easier to not have o put on reading glasses, to stare at a 5"
    screen when I can use a 27" one. ...Of course I will admit it's easier
    to haul around a cell phone than a monitor, computer, keyboard... <g>
