    I understand the connection. A pencil worked, but a Bic pen was better.

    But even my 19 year old knows the answer for this one!!

    That either means that .... oh heck - it means that we were cheap!! We STILL had cassette tapes until January when I got into my car accident and my van was totaled. That was the end of the last tape player in the house.

    Sure, I've used a pen to write on a cassette tape label.

    I must have tried to repair a hundred cassette tapes. I was successful maybe 50% of the time. I would cut the bad part of the tape out, and cut a small section of Scotch tape the same width of the tape and splice it all together. Then you had to get the cassette back together! Good times.

    Would your son know what this is?

    This is a great game.

    I want to play but can't seem to be able to upload pics. Is there a secret. I use the attachemnt icon and it keeps failing even though I use the correct size of pic.

    If the picture is small enough, I just copy and paste.

    I use photobucket, establish a free account,

    http://photobucket.com/

    Once you have established an account, you need to save images to your computer, usually under My Pictures. Just right click on any image and click Save Image As... Give the photo a name.

    Now that you have saved the image to My Pictures on your computer, go to Photobucket and click on "Upload". A box will open, normally My Pictures on your computer, but you may have to navigate to My Pictures the first time. Click on the photo you want to upload to Photobucket and click Open on the bottom right. The photo will upload to Photobucket. Click on Save and go to my Albums.

    You will see your uploaded photo at Photobucket. Place your cursor on the photo and several boxes will appear below. Click on the bottom one, it should say "Copied"

    Now come here and right click, and click Paste. The address at Photobucket will appear. Now when you post that image will appear here.

    It is not difficult, once you do it once or twice it is easy.

    Go to the navbar at the top ove the page below the header and click on

    Community>Pictures and Albums

    Then you can upload the pics. Once it is uploaded you can click on the pic and below it you will have the option of copy the code to place it in a post.

    I always found the Bic was good in rewinding casettes when they got caught up in the machine.
