WebTV - Argh!

Getting Dad's new WebTV all hooked up was fairly easy until 2 weeks later when the keyboard developed problems. Had to pound on keys to get them to register. Spent a fortune on new batteries. No help. Called techservices. No Help. Sent email to tech services. 3 days later - solution is to "reset the keyboard." Remove the batteries, press power button for 60 seconds to "drain all the power." Then reinstall batteries. This voodoo actually seems to have worked.

Walked Dad through a tutorial. He primarily wanted to read his new messages and then forward a poem rather than transcribe a new one. Got all the way through the process. Chose an old Yeats, chose dozens of recipients, wrote a message, hit SEND. . . only to see "Mail is not available at this time." So it all ended up in the "draft."

Dad was not confused by all of this - rather he was very disinterested. After lunch, after dinner, he just seems to need a nap. Or a good ball game. But he's not at all frustrated or impatient with the vagaries of WebTV.

Meanwhile, don't worry if you don't see much poetry in your in-box. Yeats and Dad are tucked in nicely.

WEll,

It helped me- I wondered more on Seroquel and if anyone took Remeron and Seroquel together.

Hope you and yours is fine.
