    BTW is there something you can do when you click something and have to wait 2 minutes for whatever you are trying to do, or even type faster? I've reformatted etc, disk checked, I can't find anything wrong. It SHOULD work, oh and yes I've checked for viruses etc. Thanks Donna

    Lord I would be in heaven I am terminally ill housebound on oxygen. The oxygen is 500 dollars a month, I take, no kidding over 30 pills a day since I was in my 30s to stay alive. I call it existing no oh poor me but no disability and my illness has eaten away our money and even to charge a computer, I'd feel so guilty, and when they say day to day,ouch This would be heaven after this piece of garbage which won't even type right I see, would be heaven on earth! What a NICE giveaway Blessings.

    Facebook and competitions - yes, you probably violates guidelines

    Everyone has the desire to have some form of competition on Facebook, we really want to reward our fans, get more of them, get into great pictures, nice stories, give away a great prize. This is my interpretation of the rules: Unless you have written permission from Facebook and will hold the competition in a proprietary third-party application then it is not allowed.

    “You will not offer any contest, giveaway, or sweepstakes (“promotion”) on Facebook without our prior written consent. If we consent, you take full responsibility for the promotion, and will follow our Promotions Guidelines and all applicable laws.”
