  • Hello another newbie

    Hi all, I am a complete and utter newbie to this chat room thing. (Note to self - Welcome to the new millenium!) I hope I can master this medium, I have enjoyed reading and learning from your posts. I am a mobile groomer on Vancouver Island. Love the job, the dogs and their human companions that go with them. Getting a bit old to do the big dogs but do everything else, plus cats and the occasional bunny rabbit or guinea pig.
    Good to meet you all. Hey, how do you get a picture of your dog on the posts like many of you do?

        hi and welcome

        As for pictures(avatar of own dog etc) I used regular photos and had them out on a disk. Kin kos does it and also walgreens.I put the disk in the slot on the side of my laptop. They must be shrunk to 640x480. Go to I actually got it. I have only owned a computer since Jan/07. I am no genius. You can do it. You have to remember file name. A bit tricky. Under the user Cp are lists. Like avatar is easiest to do. Be persistant. If I don't change it often I forget the steps. I just keep trying til it worked. Most use a digital camera...I don't have one. Probably easier.Someone else can direct you on that. Good luck. Hope to see pics from ya soon.Oh, manage attachments under replys. Try it out.Don't forget to submit at the end.I will try here for you and see what happens. I don't want to change avatar.Other dog pic is from profile.
