my pics won't post

Postby lioness » Fri Feb 25, 2005 10:36 am

i cannot put pictures into the BBB from my home pc.

at work (Win XP), i can right click on a picture and have the option available to copy image locaton.

on the home pc (WIN 98), i only have very limited options sush as cut, paste or open in new window.

is there a setting i might be missing?

Hi Lioness,

Like PSIP said, congratulations on getting on line at home, and glad I could help! :cool:

Would I be correct in assuming Omni has a website? That is probably why you're able to post photos from work so easily.

In order to post photos, you need a site on the WWW in which they can be stored. It's called web hosting. In some instances, ISP's will provide it as an accessory with your internet access, or you may have to go and subscribe to a web hosting service, which is what I do. It costs me $100 per year for 200MB of hard drive storage, something like 5 or 7 GB of bandwidth, plus a whole lot of other services which would assist me in building a good website, if I wanted to take the time. Currently, I just use my site to park photos, primarily for posting here.

As for Win98, if you haven't already, it is very important to go to the MS website and download all of the updates for Win98 and IE(which will get you updated to IE6). Don't worry about the foreign language updates. I seem to recall those constitute 32 out of the 48 updates for Win98se. I believe you have a live update button on the Start menu to accomplish that.

Good plan. It takes hours, especially with the security updates as you must reboot after installing them, and some of them will only allow you to install them individually.

Just a thought lioness, you might ask your IT person at work if they have a cd of the updates (or could burn you one) or if you could bring your computer to work and plug it into the lan. That would update you a lot faster. But be sure to ask before you plug it in, they get real funny about connections.

Hi Lioness,

Yes, you can, but if you have to reboot, you'll have to close the open windows, and anything you do while you're updating slows everything waaaaaay down, especially if you're on dialup.

Its really simple, I can talk you through it if you wish, Win98 is plug and play and that really does work. You can get an inexpensive sound card at best buy open the computer box, plug it in, load the software, plug in the speaker, the listen to beethoven.com.

If you wish, I would be happy to PM you my phone number and guide you through the ordeal errrr process.
