No Avi!

Yes, I lost it. for those of you who know that I am technologically challenged this may come as no surprise. I was trying to change my avi by uploading a picture of myself instead and this is the result. The mylotter who advised me made it sound so easy that I was sure that I could not fail - but I have. So, beautiful Saphrina - this is your fault! I did what you said and this is the result. I am without an avi. A while ago I was without a burger in a burger but this is far more serious. So are you blaming any mylotter today for something real or imagined?

I'd say it is about time to start picking up some lessons here. Let's see if we can get your picture back. In order to do that you will need to find where your photo (intended for uploading is) locate it and reply. I will let you know what to do next.

Okay, no more negative self-talk!!! You are not dumb, you did it before, maybe the photo is too large or mylot is having problems. What happens when you try to upload it?

Many thanks for the compliment. I do hope that you can load as many of us are now coming out and revealing ourselves for the first time. This should make it more friendlier between us I think.

The mad cow stole it and gave it to the counter girl at the BK to get even. However, if she was going to be a mad cow as well and be on anyone else's case it should have been the cook who made her look bad by giving you an empty bun, for your empty avatar. Oh, Look, I see you!!!

I just know we are kinfolks. I didn't have an avi for years & finally ask my son to fix me one. Would not have attempted it myself. I would have probably come up w/a picture of a gorilla or worse, maybe something x-rated, lol. Is that really u?? If it is u have let your hair grow longer since the last picture.i saw of u. Looks like u did 'good' to me. love ya!

O.K.....you two sweet ladies...you WILL NOT shame me into this...until some-one with some "techie" brains is here for a visit! I cannot afford to have this computer go down again. cynthiann...what you don't know..is I too, live on a small Island, with about 1000 population and my venture into the cyber world..is kinda frightening for an old lady...as we have NO-ONE here to repair. Humoungsly costly to bring a "techie" from town, as the Ferries run..they are here the whole day, at that closes on a $1000.00 dollar bill... So, if I don't play around and break it...I can stay in touch! That's my excuse and I am sticking to it! LUV and HUGZ..to all!

Nah! Stoopid zone but it is fixed. Have to tell GG. It was saphrina that started this. She is so pretty and kind of dared us to do it and that's when I got stuck. Received help and did it. Something else learned.

You cannot upload pictures using AVI... heheh. I think the easy way to capture pictures through video file is to use Snagit application, but before you use it, open first your video. Then if you're ready then ready to snapshot it on the screen. Pause the video then capture its size of screen. Hope it helps...

I am always blaming a dear lady who comes to help me out with the house work since I got ill. I either tell her that she stole something or I tellher that she hid it. Fortunatly we know each other for 15 years so she knows I don`t mean it. But I even lose the lists of the things I have to do. I`m afraid that I`ll lose my head one of these days

I just answered one of your discussions, and as soon as I hit submit I thought, where is her avatar? I know she had one, where the heck did it go? But just now when I answered this discussion, it suddenly reappeared. I guess you fixed it!

Yes, a mylotter talked me or rather walked me through it and I feel so proud that I can upload pictures. Will have to practise it a bit more until I get the hang of it

Nope, though there have been times that I've been very thankful to other mylotters, there has never been a time that I've blamed them for anything that was actually going on in my life or where I would blame them for something that I've perceived had happened in my life. We are here to offer each other support and advice and there might be times that their advice might not be the best advice, but I still can't blame other people for the decisions and actions that I take in my life.
