I went to LaCrosse and unloaded Monday morning and when I called in empty Todd said to go home and pick up a van load Tuesday evening in Lynchburg at 4:00pm going to Port St. Lucie, FL. B) So I did, except they called Tuesday evening and said it would be ready at 6:00 instead of 4:00. Had to be in Florida with it Thursday morning, so I had plenty of time to get there. I dropped the trailer at a power plant Thursday morning, and bobtailed all the way back. Good paying load too.

Now i've got a load of treated lumber at the shop going to Fairview or Fairfield, Pa. Jeff said it was near Erie, and it was Fair-something or other...went in one ear and out the other.

This computer has about driven me crazy since nocluejoe broke my webcam :whistling: . I tried to uninstall and reinstall it, but it still wouldn't work...tried a different usb port-nothing. So I figured it must be the camera itself and bought another one, but it still wouldn't work. Re-uninstalled it and tried downloading the latest updated driver direct from Logitech-nothing. What gets me is the little icon at the bottom of the monitor says "your device is ready to use" but QuickCam says ""your camera is not plugged in, or is not working properly" :huh: . Well, duh! It's connected to a usb port, and obviously the %$&* thing ain't working properly :angry: ! I fooled with it half a day, control panel, device manager, programs and features, windows trouble shooting- i've been to 'em all...but it still wouldn't work :idunno:

...wonder if Barry knows anything about computers? :rolleyes:

I went through a similar problem last week, with my e mail. It worked fine for over 3 years, the one day it wouldn't work. After fooling with it for almost a week, I finally called the server. I had to add the word Pop to the out going account. After 3 years the dang computer just couldn't stand it any more. I didn't know that a computer could hold a grudge against you. It must have been made in W. Va., or somewhere around Lafollette Tn.

Easy now James, I'm having computer troubles myself.....Possibly from Otherdog

Man, there is nothing like a computer to make you feel

totally helpless. At least at my level of expertise.

But it's even worse, I'd say, if someone is doing damage

to his friend's equipment.

And - he's probably laughing about it too!

Sound like we ought to put out a warning - that we

could be marching on Tennessee real soon!

I talked to Old Bill this morning on windows live messenger. Well, not really talked, we typed back and forth. The audio still works on skype (as far as I know) but he said his big unit (pc) blew up and it was at the computer doctor. He was on a linux unit he has and live messenger was the only windows program he could get on at all. Anyway, he told me to try a program called Reg Cure. It had a free download, and it's supposed to fix pretty near any problem you might have with your pc, and make it way faster-bigger,better, stronger I guess. So I downloaded the free version and it found 1,167 errors on my pc. The free version fixed 2 of them. The not-free version to fix the rest of the issues was $29.95. I went ahead and installed it, and uninstalled and installed the quickcam again, but it still doesn't work. Bill said it sounded like a DLL problem-I don't know what a DLL is, and didn't know I had one. Now I just hope the camera starts working again on it's own, like by magic or something. But that's not likely to happen.

I don't know about the warning part- he's probably filling sand bags like mad and piling them around his house now! :lol:

Probably can't find any pork and beans, bottled water, or ammo anywhere in Lafollette now, so he can withstand a long siege.
