    Am I the only one here that didn't know that I could bookmark messages, pictures, etc.? Guess I should have read all the instructions before I got started. I just found out how to do this. It's one of those "stupid" moments.

    I am really good with computers and even build my own now, but I still have those "What was I thinking about" moments! I am constantly learning new things everyday.

    Funny thing about it is I can tell I am getting older now because used to my mom and dad came to me wanting to know how to do this or that on their electronic devices and now I am finding myself going to my daughter for information especially with the cell phone. :shock: :roll: :lol:

    So dont feel bad at all I am still learning about this board!!

    You are far from stupid. I look at computers like quilting it is always a learning process. It takes a while to learn everything on the board. Just when you think you have got it mastered admin goes and adds something new. LOL.

    No, not stupid. Just didn't get that far yet. There are so many posts to read it leaves little time to explore. :)
    I don't pay attention to my bookmarks because I was bookmarking everything I had an interest in reading again later. As I remember, it only shows one page. So I would have to delete bookmarks to be able to see the one I was looking for. I more or less depend on my topic and posts logs to find them now.
    This board does have lots of good tools.

    If you are stupid, I guess I must be too. Join the crowd. I can't even get a new cell phone because I would have to figure out something new. Mine is starting to wear out but really love it. Must get worse as we get older because I hever had this problem before when looking at new phones.

    Maybe we are just selective about new things. I have not problem when it comes to seing machines, always want to try something new. There is so much here, it takes time to learn. I also have trouble figuring out abbreviations used on board, but hate to ask. Always hope someone elso does. LOL

    b ookmarks? here? hmmmm .... i can use the watched topics!
    i haven't figured how to put pictures on the main or chit-chat sections where there aren't any upload buttons. nor have i tried the 'live' chats. my daughter gave me a nook that i'm working on how to use it. but, really, i love gadgets, even if i have a hard time using them. after awhile it gets easier.

    I can put the bookmarks, but then I can't figure out how to find them cuz I can only see a few and I have tons of things bookmarked. Can you make folders on here?
    Anyone know how to get to the bookmarked things that I can't find? LOL See what you started.

    Not only do I not know how to bookmark, I can't figure out how to get the pretty signatures everyone has on thier signature lines. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has trouble figuring things out. :roll:
