I recall talk about a phone (?) app that alerts you when something comes up for sale on the 'Net. Is there something out there that does this?

P.S. I'm about as low-tech as a hammer, so explain it to me very simply. Thanks!

If you are as good as you say, I would suggest you go back to non smart phones.

They will not put too much pressure on your mental ability! clap

You are more than welcome my friend.

I have certain members of my own family whose knowledge of technology is about 3 centuries behind Fred Flintstone!

One asked me to help him buy a computer.

I did.

He got home with it, looked at the keyboard, and called me "Saeed, your friend in the shop gave me the wrong keyboard. It has the keys all scrambled! They are not in order, like A B C D. They are in line that says QWERTY"

I told him to pull the keys off and put them in order as he wishes.

Since I'm here typing on a computer, I'm only 10-15 years behind.

I thought there was some kind of an app that alerts you when certain things (firearms) are listed for sale on the 'Net.

A very long time ago, a friend had a computer, so I thought I would get one too.

Went to a place where they assemble them, got the best one they could make.

with two floppy disks, and one ginormous hard disk that had a capacity of 5 megabites!

And to top it all I got a 4 color monitor.

Got it home and put it on.

All I could see was a flashing C.

I called the shop, and asked what is wrong with it.

He said nothing was wrong, and to use it I have to put programs in it.

No problem.

Back to the shop, where they had a list of many pages of every conceivable program available.

Price depends on how many floppies the program fits on.

One only pays the price of the floppies, which was about $1.5.

All pirated.

Got a few games, and a few others like a word processor.

It was easy then under DOS.

All one has to do is type the program name and off it goes.

Then went on to building my own.

Right now we have 6 desktop computers at home, all are built right here.

Life is so much easier now a days, as everything fits.

In the old days it was like an obstacle course. clap

When I 1st moved out here 50 years ago, in addition to party lines we had crank telephones.


Never mistake motion for action.

Crank telephones 50 years ago?? I bet that was before Edison invented the light bulb and you watched tv by candlelight.

These were desk mount phones that had a crank in lieu of the rotary dial. this was a private phone company that 2 months later Ma Bell came in + bought out. We still had to deal with party lines for several more years.
