    If this demon child computer had vaccuum tubes, points, or a mechanical fuel pump I might stand a better chance of getting something accomplished on it!!! Thanks so much everyone for the warm welcome. I'll get the hang of it eventually. In the mean while the wife and kids get free entertainment watching me teeter on the verge of an electronic device induced breakdown!!!

    Thanks again,
    Bob

    Hello Bob. You wouldn't believe how easy children pickup on touchscreen or mouse/keyboard. Driven computers. For some of us that still have rotary phones. Cells phones, computers, programming a clock can be a challenge. My suggestion to you is to get a daughter or son or grandchild if old enough to point you in the direction of YouTube which is a site full of stupid and informative how to videos. Not all the videos are stupid. The iPad is super for watching videos. I believe it has an app on the screen that says YouTube. Plus you can go to your nearest bookstore or used bookstore and look for "iPad for dummies" it's a line of leaning book for all types of topics but explained on an entry level. I'm still learning new tricks with mine. For messaging it is extremely fast.

    Start by going to this link while sitting in a comfy chair and watch these videos.

    Welcome to TBN, Bob!

    I would suggest, since your using an IPAD, that you go to the App Store and find the TBN app and install it (if you haven't done so already). I pretty much exclusively use my iphone or ipad, and find the app much easier to use on these devices than the normal site.

    Sorry I can't help with your gravely attachments question, but am sure someone will be along that can.
