Re:Errors with Windows xp?



It is okay. I agree with you. I hate windows xp. It is very slow. And it cannot do a lot of things that vista can do. I love windows vista. I am running windows vista on my laptop right this second. It is my personal laptop.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Hey i have verizon too. My phone can read you the battery level: and the time, and the signal strength and mor. It even reads me my missed calls and it tells me how many i missed and who called me and the time and date that they called. I also have an application called vz navigator. It is a gps that tells me where to go and where i am.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I think that is only fair.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Thrill seaker. If you show rockstar let him know that i want him to call me hercules.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



That's awesome. But still, funny? Sarah, I told you to listen to Mimi. I'm not lecturing you, but she did give you advice about it.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



sarah, he's stalking you now? That's scary and that's what i warned you guys about.
elizabeth i text with my talking verizon phone.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



It was really scary.


Holly crap that's scaryRe:Errors with Windows xp?



Sarah i aggree that you shouldn't do that because i would be scared and that has never happened to me before Paulina


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I'm never giving my details out on a website ever again! On Tuesday night some dude got my phone number and pretended to be a blind teenager, so I gave him my email address and phone number. It turned out that he was a sicko pervert and he's like stalking me now. I'll give out my myspace details, just not my phone number. I don't have anythin on myspace to hide.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



It's , uh , funny? How do you text? Chris was just wondering.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



lol this is funny. Wonder if rockstar's seen this, gonna text him to come and look.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



He won't tell. He is 24, and that's why I wan't him to call me Foffy.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



What is rockstar's name? And who is he or she?


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Hey Chris, you can call me Elizabeth, I just want Rockstar to call me Foffy.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Hello everyone my name is Chris. I agree with foffy. I want to know rockstar's name to. You guys can call me computer if you want to. I am not afraid to give out my name here on this sight because i trust everyone here. Hope to hear from one of you guys.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I've heard that Myspace isn't the savest web sight to go on. Rockstar, If I can't call you by your name, I think it's only fare if you call me Foffy.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I think she would rather do myspace because she knows everyone on ther. She's shy like me. Mimi, how often do you go on myspace?


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



That's unforchinate.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



she won't do both like i do?


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



She would rather be on myspace.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



So why doesn't she?


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



That's so cool! I wish my best friend would come on here and talk to us.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



i don't know if we are best friends but he is one of my close friends, and i don't think we could ever be married like I said, he's like a brother.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Maybi you tou should get maried.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Yeah, it's like you and Rockstar have been best friends for years.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I'm glad you and _Rockstar_ get along.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I'll post my myspace details up here because I trust everybody on here, and I don't have any private details on my myspace that anyone can find out about.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



That is exactly why i tell you guys not to do that.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Yeah, me too. One time, I posted my phone number and email on yahoo and I kept getting prank calls. It was creepy.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Aww rockstar i come back and see you need my support, and yes i do agree with you buddy.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I used to have a Gmail account but somehow it got deleted. That's why instead of email I either talk on here or myspace.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Yeah. I can't even navigate Gmail anymore.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I won'tgive out my real name on things like myspace or anything, but I trust people on this site so I'm not scared to give out all my info. Besites, it's impossible to give out your email address on here. I've tried it and it got deleted so I j-st don't do it anymore.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



there is a difference between answering simple questions and trying to protect your personal safety and security in not giving out personal info to strangers. It is a normal part of life that people aren't sure about giving out personal info. Mimi would agree with me.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I think it's very disrespectful to not answer simple questions!


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Yeah, Elizabeth, I know how you feel. It is frustrating when you want to know someones name and they won't give it to you. How else can you find them on myspace? Mimi was right about internet safety, but I'm a thrill seeker, and I'm not afraid of giving out all of my info. I watch dateline and all that stuff, I'm just not parnoid like my mother is sometimes.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I understand. I just wanted to know his name.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



No there isn't anything wrong with curiosity, but we weren't trying to be rude and not answer. we didn't mean to hurt your feelings.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Was anything wrong with being curious?


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



i don't think it's wrong to ask questions elizabeth, it's just that for internet safety it's not good to give away where you live and your name, there are some wierd creepers online you know. haven't you ever seen dateline or shows like that, pretty creepy stuff.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I won't ask you any more questions.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Fine.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Rockstar quit being a lazy butt and he lives in cali like me, yes 24 like he said in his other post but not giving out his name is smart.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



btw thanks for the wake up text mimi.
Elizabeth, I'm not too sure about giving out personal info out over the internet. But I will say that I go to a college in the state of musical heaven, lol. I'm in my twenties.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



What?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



elizabeth, i doubt rockstar will answer those questions, he's very secretive like me haha. Let's see what wild answer he gives. I'm about to text him and tell him to get on and answer.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I'm glad that you guys get along. How old are you Rockstar1!? What is your name? Whair do you go to school at?


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Rockstar, you are so right pal. We have so much in common i wear.
By the way, thanks for the pic comments, you're too sweet!


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Me too. Vista is really easier than Xp, and with Xp, it's easier to make the big error I described. I think you should really use Vista, because it's easier to navigate. The only difference is, Microsoft Anna is the default voice instead of Microsoft Sam.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Thanks for the advice Aiming I'll try that. And yes I do get very frustrated and sad when something isn't accessible, such as driving and watching videos on youtube.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



It's a heck of a lot easier than Xp that's for sure!


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



yes I've heard that vista is harder with jaws and isn't as jaws user friendly. Never tried it myself, I try to stay in the old ages with XP. But I've heard with the new windows 7 coming out in the next couple months, microsoft is getting rid of the vista brand--they're not going to make vista any more. It will be interesting to know if the new system, windows 7, works at all with jaws. I've also read that the new office 2010 sweet is even more visual than 07 so that will be interesting. Sometimes when they make this computer stuff more and more visual, It frustrates me more and makes me feel sad about my blindness. Does anyone else get that way if something isn't accessible with jaws or something?

Sarah, why don't you try using the laptop and find out some basics. You could probably get some jaws shortcuts from freedom scientific's website on your braille note. I'm an excellent jaws user that people go to for advice, and I wasn't formally taught. I did have a couple classes here and there with a little training, but mostly I learned jaws on my own by playing with it, using the beginner tapes, learning from others, and what's available online. I basically self taught myself to use it. And surprisingly I didn't know how to use it until just before I began college; in high school all the school provided was a braille notetaker, not the braille note but that stupid thing freedom scientific has. So I just say try it and see what happens.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



Elizabeth, is vista easy for you to use because i've heard it's hard to use with jaws.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I'm not an adult quite yet. That's good advice, but that laptop is for school work only. The laptop I'm using now has windows Vista.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I don't use my laptop because I don't what I'm doing. No one has ever taught me how.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



also elizabeth, buy an external hard drive so that you can back up your information and not lose it.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



haha Rockstar that is lamo and dumb. we're adults and we should be left to do what we do as long as we aren't bothreing people.
elizabeth, that happens. rockstar gave you good advice.


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I'm worried because last time, I had to deleat my whole hard drive. I was so mad!


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



what are you worried about? Nothing will happened, computers have a mind of their own so you can't be afraid all of the time. I'm a little bit of a computer geek/nurd cause I have a friend who tells me about everything so you shouldn't worry unless if something is wrong with the computer.

The only thing I'm disappointed about is my new psych instructor doesn't allow twittering in class, and walks around checking, now isn't lamo mimi?


Re:Errors with Windows xp?



I have a laptop and I don't even use it because I'm afraid that I'll crash it like before.
