Subject: Re: [Computers] ME AGAIN WITH ANOTHER QUESTION
Date: Sun, 06 Jan 2002 16:17:07 -0800
I haven't tried that since I was using the same "method/technique" that
I had with the other computer. For one thing I don't know what is
compatible to the HP Photosmart 1115 since it isn't listed in the list
of printers. Goes to show how "new/dumb" I am with this. My
comprehension of this is "null and void". I am at a complete loss.
Everytime I call someone to come in, they either don't show, or they
sit here on their cell phones, and it is for sure I can't learn anything
from that except "I won't be late for dinner" or some such conversation
to the other party at the other end of their line.
I have been trying to read the Microsoft Windows XP book to see if it
would help any but not knowing the terminology it doesn't seem to help
me, but guess I will plug along until something works.
Thanks again for your help.
