Yes, let’s check in once again with our very own Dear Sweet Mama, who has decided in the process of moving ONCE AGAIN (really, they gotta be in Witness Protection or something!) that there is some furniture she simply doesn’t like enough to haul around. So she decided to delve into the intricate mysteries of Craigslist… and this ensued.
Dear Sweet Mama: Can I call you back? I’m trying to figure out how to load these pictures onto Craigslist.
Hoody Hoo: Well, Dear Sweet Mama, I could probably talk you through it.
DSM: That’s a great idea! How come I’ve loaded these pictures onto the computer but when I go to “Browse” them on the Craigslist they’re not there?
HH: The pictures aren’t there?
DSM: No. If I go look in “My Pictures,” they’re there, but I can’t find them from the Craigslist.
HH: Okay, let’s make this easier. Copy the pictures to your Desktop so when you go to browse from Craigslist they’ll be easy to find.
DSM: Oh, okay. ((long, unsettling pause)). Well now they’re gone!
HH: You have to paste them onto your Desktop.
DSM: Oh. ((longer, still more unsettling pause)). Now I can’t find my Desktop.
HH (voice slightly muffled by head being buried in a pillow): You can’t find your Desktop?
DSM: No, is it under “All Programs”? Or in “My Computer”?
HH: Mama, your Desktop is just… your Desktop. You know, what you see when you start the computer. Do you see the “Start” button?
DSM: You mean the thing with all the pictures?
HH (head now completely under pillow): Those are called “icons” and yes, that’s where you want to copy your pictures to.
DSM: How do I do that? Is it “Copy All Files?”
HH: What are you talking about? You just go to where the picture is, right click it…
DSM: Wait, I was supposed to be right-clicking? Oh, look it worked! I probably should have had some coffee before this…
HH: I probably should have had some bourbon…
Moral of the Story: When you are so desperate you are using ME for tech support… perhaps the internet is not for you.
