PC Help Desk
Cathie ~ Coral has volunteered to lead the Squarebirds PC Help Desk. She can provide you with information regarding uploading pictures to our Forums; downsizing pictures for upload (thanks to Dave ~ simplyconnected who provided the information); other PC problems that you might be experiencing in accessing this Forum; and anything else she might be able to help you with to make your experience on this Forum easier and more enjoyable.

Suffice it to say that neither Cathie nor Squarebirds will be liable for anything you do regarding your PC in the course of assisting you. The information she will provide is free, and you are free to use it or not.

Hello All!

I am tickled pink that this section was given the go-ahead!

While I am not an expert by any means, I have indeed accomplished a great deal in the 7 years I have used a personal computer and the internet.

ANY questions, thoughts, quirks with your machine, will be graciously answered in a format you can relate to.

Viruses, spyware, annoying pop-ups?
I can help you get rid of them.

Wonder if you can do three things at once on your PC, and how to go about doing it?
I can help you decide the best way to do this.

Have an issue you just CAN'T fix?
I have a program in my computer, that will enable ME to connect to your computer, and I can fix it for you...of course there are certain things You will need to tell me in order for this to take place, I can't just do it one-sided.

Wonder whats the best way to search for information on Squarebirds?
I can answer that.....

Cheers, one and all!

Coral, before I post pictures, what size do you recommend? (how wide?). How do I set the free resizer to automatically give that size, and where can I find the newly resized pictures?

One good feature about the resizer is, it won't change your original picture in any way.

Oh, thanks for all the kudos. - Dave

Very welcome, and Thank You for asking about size of pictures!

Ever notice sometimes, you are reading along, and then have to move the screen over to the right, then back to the left again to continue following the text?

This happens when an image is attached or inserted that is wider than the normal text area.

640x480 is an easy size to use, also happens to be one of the more popular picture sizes.... there is a scroll bar next to the resolution on this Fast Image Resizer that lets you decide to pick out a pre-selected size, or simply enter your own dimensions.

Hi Bill!

Cathie is probably at work. Can I help? Like many of you, Cathie works and cannot be here 24/7. If you need help and she or I are not online, please PM or email her (or I) and one of us will get back with you as soon as possible.

I see hat my PM box is filling up. I realize that I could just empty it, but is there an easy way to move the msgs to a file on my computer and then empty it?

Coral 10-20-2010 04:57 PM

Hey Carl, Ray might know of something quick and dirty, but as far as I know you would have to copy each message and paste it to word then discard it...actually much more work than just clicking the boxes and dumping them...
