    It can take some getting used to for young and old.
    Welcome to it, nonetheless.

    In your Diatomaceous Earth intro, I posted a link you can click on and read the current existing commentary. I Hope it helps and you can always ask questions in that thread with "New Reply."

    I see it, now, and I recommend you talk to James Randi to claim your million. You've 'proven' magic happens.

    Welcome to the forum, MacGyver1968 is like an unofficial tutor for those new to the forum and he is excellent and giving walk throughs on how to get things like images or videos or links posted. I'll send him a note letting him know his services may be needed.

    Welcome to the forum, john g.

    One small tip that I might suggest is to copy your post to the clipboard prior to hitting the 'post' button in case you may have timed in the interim. That way you can simply sign back in and paste your saved post instead of losing it. A number of posters have experienced that situation and it gets mentioned fairly often on this forum and some others I attend.

    Hello john g.

    When you select and copy, the information is automatically placed on the clipboard. To retrieve it, you make sure your cursor (that blinking indicator where your typed letters show up ) is showing in the reply box, right click on your mouse and select 'paste' from the pop up menu. The copied message will then be retrieved and placed in the reply box.

    As PhDemon mentions, another way to prevent timing out is to use an alternate program such as Notepad or Word to type your longer replies into and then you can copy and paste them from there.

    Regards,

    Schez

    My hat is off to you, John g, for tackling this challenge as I know many seniors who are just not comfortable enough to make the attempt. I came late to the game myself, dragged kicking and screaming by hubby and sharing our first computer was a trial because he was always changing things and it drove me bonkers! The day I came home and could not check my email was the straw that broke the camel's back, lol, and for some time now, we each have our own computers for we use them quite differently.

    No slight intended, but the Dummies series of books are very user-friendly and guess what? They even have one for seniors and computers. Get thee to a bookstore and look for this one, and they have others as you progress. A lot of information is also available on-line but having a reference in hand is sometimes easier when one is just starting out.

    Heh, hate to bust the bubbles of our seniors- but you should have seen me when I first sat at a computer. But not to worry, 5 years later, I finally got a hang of the basics.

    I have (persistently) the exact opposite problem.
    I've been out of work for a long time, and barely a fortnight goes by when some "kind-hearted" soul suggests that I take basic computing classes to help my prospects, because, after all, "at my age" I'm never too old to learn.
    And then their nose gets put out of joint when I point out that I've not only built more of my own PCs than I bought, I used to be sysadmin for a score or so of UNIX-based computers, was responsible for training new users, writing programmes and, for f*ck's sake, I'm of the generation that developed the damned things for general use. I took my first programming lessons more than 3 decades ago and you think I ought to learn how send an email because it'll help get a job?

    Indeed. Although in work, the twenty something's I train seem surprised I know how to operate a PC, unaware I wrote my first programs forty years ago, could write self diagnostic routines in machine language and ran a software development group for a couple of years. And the silly ***ers don't even know how to use pivot tables.

    john g Thanks Schez, next time I go to town I will check the book store for the Dummy book. Maybe it will turn me into a computer geek. Where did that word come from?

    To be a "geek", does one not also have to look the part, appearance-wise? jocular

    I suppose one would first have to define the 'classic' geek look. If they look to be an awkward geek, perhaps we could just call them 'gawks'?

    Nope. I don't.
    I find it adds an element of surprise to the feelings of boredom experienced by the people I meet.

    But that would be conforming to society's stereotyping - which isn't a geek thing!
    Geekdom/ nerddom is an attitude, a state of mind 1, not an appearance.


    1 Or a calling.

    Remember when the buzzword was "awesome"? Everything, every remark, every happenstance elicited an Awesome! My wife tells me that's obsolete now, today's "in-crowd" says "wicked"!

    Around here, "no problem" remains firmly entrenched. The waiters & waitresses almost all respond to every request we make with "no problem"! jocular

    I am an incognito geek. It makes me feel more "rounded" that way.

    "Wicked" is probably out too.That's what I said in high school and I'm nearly 40.

    A few years ago, it seems they were saying "sweet".

    My "writing style" is not how I converse. I write in a way which seems very formal, to the point, technically correct. It's because I was trained to write that way in 2 Technical English courses, and then had a career which involved much technical report writing, instruction manuals, and the like.

    Writing is one thing, but the speech patterns today are atrocious! Having grown up outside of Chicago, then moving to Las Vegas at age 30, folks living there (who experienced a broad range of "outsiders" every day) claimed I must be from Wisconsin, because of my "accent"! For example, "over there" sounds like "ober dare". Give me: "gimme". jocular

    Welcome john g, you aren't by chance related to AlexG are you?

    If you stick around, I can see you will become popular here. Have you been thinking of trying out some avatars? If so, PM me and I'll tell you all you need to know about them. After 20 posts you should be able post pictures and active links. It helps screen the spammers.

    My writing pattern is how I read and interpret lines of a play.....and how I think of my phrasing of music! Awesome is still a huge word, by the way. AMAZING is now the new thing I believe.

    I've probably used AMAZING more than Awesome in my life time. So will have trouble calling it the new thing.

    My "writing style" is not how I converse. I write in a way which seems very formal, to the point, technically correct. It's because I was trained to write that way in 2 Technical English courses, and then had a career which involved much technical report writing, instruction manuals, and the like.

    Writing is one thing, but the speech patterns today are atrocious! Having grown up outside of Chicago, then moving to Las Vegas at age 30, folks living there (who experienced a broad range of "outsiders" every day) claimed I must be from Wisconsin, because of my "accent"! For example, "over there" sounds like "ober dare". Give me: "gimme". jocular
    My writing pattern is how I read and interpret lines of a play.....and how I think of my phrasing of music! Awesome is still a huge word, by the way. AMAZING is now the new thing I believe.
    I've probably used AMAZING more than Awesome in my life time. So will have trouble calling it the new thing.
    *chuckle* OLD are you?
    He has 86 years of experience.
    Let's not get quite so carried away with that old business.
    I lost my best old friend last year at age 93. If you are anywhere as perky and alive as he (though he could never remember names anymore, including his own a few times) you are in pretty good shape for an OLD guy

    I think B.R. will be counting many decades before claiming such status.

    My dad will be 91 in 3 months and I will consider myself lucky to live that long.

    john g to all the above !! I wish I had a writing style. Just talk a lot in clichés. Every thing is relative and life is a matter of attitudes. that's all I learned in 86 yrs. And when I was young the word swell worked for us, isn't that amazing.

    If you spend much time on the forum, many of the members will be able to tell who you are even if you change your ID, because they will recognize your writing style. Maybe what you meant to say was your writing style sucks. In that case it will improve a great deal as you spend more time on the forum. There is nothing like the forum to help keep your mind working and thinking and as you wind your life down you can still learn and share your experiences.

    Harsh!
    And, especially given some of the posters here, not that accurate.

    Anyone with 80+ years of experience on this planet keeping their input to a minumum is to deprive the rest of us of a great deal of wisdom. My suggestion; speak up.
