Well, I'm back to tethering my laptop to my Droid X again.
I got some suggestions from Rick. He said to un-install the Pdanet program from the computer and then re-install.. I did that and no change. I did it again and some other things (I'm not really sure what???) and I'm back online. I am posting this blog through my Droid, for the time being anyway.
When I do things to my computer like this, I just push buttons, select next, etc and sometimes I really don't know what I'm doing. I know this is not the best method and I think I just heard Rick gasp, but it's all I know to do sometimes.
Anyway, we're working, hopefully it will stay working. I just lost my connection a few minutes ago and do not know why. It may just be a normal thing. I do know a phone call will override the internet access though. So while I have internet access, I ordered a book that is very appropriate for me.
Yup, the dummies really applies! I found the same book on Ebay for over $30, so I thought this was a good idea. I could have ordered an Ebook, but for something like this, I prefer a book that I can bookmark and highlight if necessary.
This Droid is really a great computer/phone, but it has so much stuff that it's very complicated. I could use it just fine as I understand things right now, but I know there is so much else there that I'm missing. Sometimes I find something, then can't remember how I got there the next time. I uploaded the Facebook App, but now on my phone contacts, I see all my FB friends! I need to figure how to remove them from my phone contacts for the phone. Maybe Droid X for Dummies will help.
We used the GPS feature the other day and found we can get a satellite view instead of the normal gps map view. It was nice. I could see that a big lake I wouldn't have seen or a river. You could actually see things on tops of roofs of large buildings.
Today, I plan to work on purging things in the kitchen. My plan yesterday got waylayed due to the two house showings. I haven't heard back from our Realtor, so I haven't gotten any feedback. I'm not expecting anything though, but we'll see I guess.
