O/T Sometimes computers are sooo frustrating!!

Recommended Posts

Hi all. :-wave I finally finished my federal taxes and am now officially broke! ;(8 What does that have to do with computers, you might ask. Absolutely nothing -- I just had to vent a little. :-bang (Whoever coined the phrase "land of the free" must have never had to pay federal income taxes!) BUT I am experiencing a very vexing situation with my ISP. I can get online (obviously, since I AM here) but I can't connect to my server to get (or send) my e-mail. What a revoltin' development!! :-erksI just thought I'd let off a little steam here.... since you all are my extended family. :-beerchugHere's wishing everyone a great week. :-smile12-Lindy :-spacecraft

Oh yeah, Meek.... I LOVE all these new little "smilies" (although some of them don't look all that friendly....) And there even appear to be a couple more new ones since yesterday! But just for you, Meek.... I didn't add any smilies to this post. hahaha-Lindy :-wave (except this one)

Thank you, Doc. I was secretly hoping that you would nominate me for this very prestigious office.Obviously, I am highly qualified: - my smiley collection is much greater than the AvSim offering http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3cc00fd521bb13ec.gif - there are no sacred cows as far as I am concerned http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3cc0104822d8d2e9.gif - irreverence is my middle name http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3cc010e1243a359d.gifOn the other hand, I am no great friend of smileys, as I firmly believe in the power of the written word.So in this instance, oh great swamee, I bow down to your magnificence http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3cc01182255069c2.gif and propose that you be named to the post of High Handler of the Smileys.All my most humble respect.Luis

Tom,When one is in the buttering business, there is no such thing as "over buttering". LOL!Meekal

Gentlemen:I turn away for a few moments and look what happens. Hoist by my own petard.Brother Luis indeed must have a far greater collection of smiley icons. I have none. He has demonstrated, perhaps second to Lindy, a capacity to use them. I think the "no first use" doctrine, while applying to nuclear devices, does not qualify for SIC (Smiley Icon Control).We already have a worldwide despoiler of currencies and filthy lucre, so the post of Smiley Control and Coordination does not seem like much of a step for a stepper. Ergo, Brother Luis seems most appropo for the post.And to the point of buttering? Pravastatin might have to be issued to all parties concerned.Doc Bryantthis message certified as "Smiley Free" by the SIC IG office (awaiting Brother Luis to assume command status)

As usual, Doc Bryant comes up with the good ideas. Lindy and the smileys have an evident affinity one for the other. And she has nothing better to do. So let's put her up for the job.While I hesitate to call her SIC (Smiley Icon Controleuse), perhaps Doc could imagine some more felicitous title.Best regards.Luis

Excuse me??? I have nothing better to do!!! Them's fightin' words, buster. :-bang I work on the computer all day, every day doing transcription which is the only reason I can pop in here at all. ;(8So if someone is looking for a "smilie police" type -- don't look at me. :~PP. S. Don't worry, Luis... I know you were just funning (at least I HOPE you were.) :-beerchug-Lindy :-outta

Scott:Remember, in here volunteer is equivalent to "shanghai", "press gang", and "dragoon".The whole secret of it is that you dump it square on someone else's lap and run away. It's in Brother Luis's lap now. :-lolDoc Bryant :-outta

My most sincere apologies to you, Lindy. I meant to say that since you no longer occupy any formal office here at AvSim, as you have in the past, you are now free to assume the mantle of Smiley Manageress. No doubt, you are a hard-working person, and so, can be counted on to handle those smileys gently but firmly.Please bear witness, gentlemen, to the vindication of Doc's comments concerning Lindy's use of smileys. She obviously likes them and vice versa. A perfect candidate for the job.My vote is in.Best regards.Luisjust call me slick
