    Re: OT -- Storm Thread -- How's Everyone Doing?



    AF-
    Former Computer Genius here!

    Not sure how old your cell phone is, but my old one couldn't download pix I took with it, either. (why I ever wanted a phone that took pictures that I couldn't do anything with is beyond me!)

    In any event, a couple questions/thoughts -
    --Can you email stuff from your cell? If so, attach the picture(s) to an email message and mail them to Tony or yourself, then use your PC software to copy, share, etc.

    --Do you have text messaging? You should be able to send a text message with an attachment to someone who DOES have a phone that can download it.

    Maybe other posters have some better ideas, but you may want to try email or texting. Good luck!

    Re: OT -- Storm Thread -- How's Everyone Doing?

    Thanks Beau.

    I do have texting so I'll give it a try with an attachment and see
    what happens. I can still look at the pics even if I can't send them.
    I see my girl friend's face every time I turn the phone on. After I
    sang a girl asked to have my pic taken with her. She said, there,
    every time I turn the phone on your face-lol. Hey, she
    loves the way I sing Crazy Bitch-lol. When I told my doc about
    some of the action I was getting he looked at me like I was full
    of it, I showed him some pics from the phone and he said
    holy sh*t.


    Yea, we were lucky compared to the NE but like I said, there are
    several houses in this development with damages from trees falling
    on them and the vehicles too.


    My prayers go out to everyone.

    Re: OT -- Storm Thread -- How's Everyone Doing?

    I just drove around and all those houses I posted above are Ok
    now. The trees were all off the homes by late yesterday. I just
    went by the house with 2 trees on it and they were gone but the
    house has a hole in the roof and is covered up waiting for a new
    roof.

    My neighbor 2 doors down is ok. His tree is gone after falling on
    his house. He said damn, I loved that tree. Been there for
    44 years. lol

    Everything is back to normal around here except for the house
    with a hole in it but the guy was smiling while talking to a reefer,
    um, I mean roofer.

    Good luck to you GOTA and be safe.

    Reading the news out of CT is sobering.

    Hope you get it back soon. I guess people throwing eggs at the workers isn't helping matters.

    That's really not who they should be throwing eggs at. The workers are busting their asses to get this fixed. It's the clueless management if the utilities that deserve eggs. This will be real ugly because its going to linger to Election Day. Politicians are putting as much heat as they can on these guys

    GOTA--
    It goes without saying (and I realized I hadn't said it!), but I hope all is well with you and yours, as well as all of our posters. I recall you live more in the area that was hit than I, but since you have connection to here, I'm guessing that you're okay.

    Stay safe, mon ami!

    Thanks Beau Petard. We're okay here. Just tired of the cold and dark. The latest update is 11:30 PM on Tuesday but there is so little left to do in my area that I can't imagine that power won't be on before that. I finally made it to my sister-in-laws apartment to enjoy the heat and communicate here. Wasn't working too well on the cell phones since so many towers were down. All in all CT is not that bad. It got off easy compared with many areas.

    Power finally back on. I missed the game but it did sound frustrating. I'll catch the short cut later and can always check it out on the computer
