Hey Ellen, I do hope u get well soon! I just read ur attachment document. Thank you so much for ur work. This is so helpful to see others analysis! That's y I want u to stay on and post too!
Anyhow, I would love to help you by explaining the copy paste thing.. and i think it sound so much more complicated in writing then in actually doing it. Do you have a Word Program at hom but simply do not have internet connection there? And thats y u go to the library?
I ask bc if you have something at home, I can easily OVER THE PHONE, lead u through how to copy and paste and then u will know how to do it anywhere you go. I would be willing to do that if you want. I can leave my phone number on here for a day or so (then I would erase it after you got it) and you can just call me (after you feel better of course). OR I can just post a message on this board under another listing thread (not here on Re:Practice Charts) and just type out steps in fine detail if the phone thing doesnt work for u. LET ME KNOW?
Hi Ellen and Dhyana,
Just a couple of thoughts...
- if you need to swap phone numbers why don't you just send each other a personal message (PM) and that way its just between the two of you. To send someone a PM just click on their name in the left hand column next to one of their posts. This will open their profile, and down the bottom of that under "Additional Information" click on "Send this member a personal message".
Hope you get well soon Ellen, and that Dhyana can help you out.
- also, if its a useful additional method to Dhyana's email & cut and paste system, which should work pretty well once you get the hang of it, there is a simple way to incorporate using your flash drive too, if the Library computer has MS Windows on it. If it does there is a built in program that always is on Windows computers called "Notepad", and may be available to use. This makes simple text files, so you could do your writing in there, and save it on your flashdrive.
You would take your flash drive and plug it in first at the Library computer. Then click the Start button, then click "Programs" or "All Programs", then in the menu click on "Accessories", then find and click on "Notepad".
Once it is open you can type merrily away, and when you want to save your work save it to a file on your flashdrive, which you would find in Notepad by clicking on the "File" menu at the top, then "Save", then navigate in the folder tree to "Computer", click on it and then you should see your flashdrive showing there (it's probably called "Removable Disk"). Click on it and then you should see your folders in the right pane, and you can save your file in one of those folders.
When you leave don't forget to take your flashdrive with you !
When you go back next time, plug your flashdive in, open up Notepad (as above), go to 'File" in the menu at the top, then click on "Open" in the menu, then navigate as above to your file on your flashdrive and double-click on it, and it should open and be ready to add more text to your last writings. (Remember you can periodically save your work as you are writing in Notepad, just like in Word, by clicking on the File menu, then on "Save".)
Finally when ready to post, use your new copy and paste skills (if Dhyana has taught you those), to copy your work from Notepad into the forum's post window.
If I can help any other way just let me know.
