Technologically Impaired

It has been brought to my attention that I have a friend request by a member of this forum.

As I use my phone app to visit the forum I was unaware of the request.

I've tried to access my user CP to respond but as yet have not been successful.

I have spoken to this member by PM and accepted the offer informally.

I'm posting this because I would hate to think that my lack of response(s) might be interpreted as a snub or rude.

This is definitely not the case.

And while I'm at it I'd like to thank you all for welcoming me here and making me a member of the family.

I'm sure you've noticed that I have contributed very little in topics concerning food/cooking.

Because I'm remodeling my kitchen as I have the time and financial resources the only cooking I do is for my Mom at her home.

These meals are pretty much quickly one-pots, salads, stir-fries etc. and not at all interesting or creative.

I am however learning a lot from you folks. I am in awe of and inspired by the wonderful dishes that you share here.

Thanks again all!

j, no worries.

the app sucks, imo. i've tried it and went back to using the full site method. if you can access dc from a computer, or just use your web browser to get to the full site, you'll see your friend thing on the right and it's pretty simple to check the box for the friends you have request from, then save it, or to send friend requests.

hi J. You like the phone app? I'm having trouble figuring it out plus even when I am using it a pop-up comes up asking me if I want to download the app.

I am a good cook, as far as one can be for local type cooking so I have just been easing my way into the food sections..... kind of just dipping my toes into the pool.

I have no friends yet but that's okay, I'm a loner in real life too. I did, however, managed to make someone mad at me already. Do I get anything for that achievement in such a short time?

I tried the DC app on my SO's iPad and quickly dropped it in favor of access via Safari.

We don't get mad. Just get our feathers ruffled a bit. But in one sentence, we are always over it real quick. If any of us have a real gripe, we go private with it.

I must be one of the few that has a simple cell phone. I don't text, have no apps, and have to have Spike set my phone up for me. But then I am happy. My phone is free and I have 500 minutes a month. I have had a free phone for a couple of years now and just found out I could text if I wanted to learn how. Have no interest. I want to hear the human voice. I also have Skype. That was a BIG thing for me. I get to see my grandson and can talk to him. I also make most of my phone calls from my computer. You just can't call me there unless you have Skype also. Last week wheile my daughter was sitting in the hairdressers chair, her phone rang. "Ma answer my phone." I couldn't find the talk button. I handed the phone to her.

No, I don't want to come into today's world. I like the one I live in.

Ahoy there Ahoy,

I do like the phone app but it does have limitations. I like it because its so easy to navigate. Also the only opportunities I have to visit here are during my lunch break (now) or once I get into bed at night.

Using my phone I don't have to fool with my laptop.

I do use the open browser option on occasion to be able to zoom on photos but that's pretty much it.

When I open browser the same popup appears but I click cancel.
