For those who follow my nonsense
Posted by littletimmy on Wednesday, January 17, 2018 8:23 PM

Apperently My Dell laptop has reached the end of it's usefull life. There was some sort of update and now I cant access my postimage account. This means I cannot post picture's at the moment.

I'm also having trouble typing , the cursor keep's running off into Oblivion and sometimes take's my word's with it ( hope their having a good time )

I keep having to edit my post's because word's are missing  ......

Anybody have some DuctTape ????   Or a "Bigger" hammer ?????

If I dissapear for a few days its' not because I'm unhappy with the FSM forum, or upset with anyone here .....

It's because I took my compootor and "CHAINED" it to the back of my truck ..... and dragged it out into the wood's ..... and left it to die in the wild! 

( Watch..... some Antelope will find it and start posting in my place ! )

I have trashed three Dell computers over the last 10 years.  They, and their tech support from India are worthless. 

I now have an Apple iMac and find it much less troublesome.  

I like your idea of dragging it behind the truck!

Computer, did we bring batteries?.....Computer?

Poor nigerian students would love. it. I'm somewhat in the same boat, I think the latest Windows updates have kind of toasted it.

I paid $ 165 to have it all cleaned up, but anything more and I'm going to take it out back for target practice.

I'd made my own PCs decades ago, near every bit of the technology long obsolete. Currently using a Dell XPS 8700, old but so far best desktop system I've ever owned, the P2714H 27-inch monitor a major Godsend, absolutely can't do anything PC without a BIG one!

Sticky key?  Spacebar?

I once thought I had a virus when I unknowingly enabled the voice to text feature...lol. I'd start typing and the cursor would jump around.  Then I'd start with a bunch of explicatives and it would get worse.

Throw it in the ocean... salt water and electronics do not get along... better than dragging behind a truck...

My community has an E-scrap recycle program every April. They collect up TVs, computers, printers, cell phones, etc. and they get recycled properly.

Last year, I got real lucky. I had a pair of old dehumidifiers that I had registered with the manufacturer. Both were almost 10 years old. Both were recalled and I was instructed to take a photo of the units with the power cord cut and a photo of the data plate. They then sent me two brand new ones for free. This happened just before the E-scrap date.

The older of the two was ready for the scrap heap. The newer of the two was suffering from what the recall was for. I am glad I received notification about it and unplugged it. Got rid of two old dehumidifiers and replaced them with two brand new ones for free.

Any way, I dropped those, a few old laptops and a bunch of printer cartridges at the E-scrap site.

My dad used to have a solution to any and all problems. Find the center of whatever needs fixing and hit it hard with a hammer. Problem solved one way or another.

I never followed that advice but there were times........................

Ours has that too, much more frequently. Amazing how much ewaste there is.

 

I take my cartridges to Staples, actually get money for them.

Which leads to a completely arbitrary thought.

Growing up in California, by the end of the 50's and into the 60's, the landscape was dominated by auto junk yards. Don't see that so much anymore.

OK . I managed to find a "Backdoor" into my Postimage account.

I have to enter EACH step of the prosses as I go, and then take one step back to go one step forward    

EXAMPLE: I enter postimage.org   Then the page turn's into postimages/login

Then enter :  postimage/login  Then I can log in. Once I'm logged in it change's to postimages.org/my images

Then enter :  postimage/my images

after three or four more step's I  have to upload a picture to a gallery before I can get into one of my 4 Gallery's

To change Gallery's , I have to do it ALL over again ..... It's stupid slow but you will all be thrilled ( or not )  that I can now  post my nonsense again.... like so ...

I think someone "Hacked" their way into my account. I'm still trying to change my password without totally screwing up my account.
