You can send email to anyone who has an EMAIL button at the bottom of his/her posts. You can send a PM (private message) to anyone....those things are archaic. I will send you an email so you can see.

I'm not sure really what the difference is between a PM and an email, other than with an email no LBDA administrators can see them. Why would a PM be any more archaic than email? It seems essentially the same to me. Personally, I think the PM feature is a very handy tool and use it quite often. If you want to make sure no one at the LBDA can see your communications, then email makes more sense to use. Lynn

I've used the PM features quite a bit and find them useful.

Archaic because it has its own unique restrictions.

Rules:
(a) you have to LOG on to the LBDA Forum to read any of your PMs
(b) you have to LOG on to the LBDA Forum to send any PM
(c) the PMs don't keep all of the back-and-forth replies in a single message
(d) the space allotted for PMs is very small

Perhaps it's a generational thing or a computer literacy thing.

This will be my last reply on this topic as it has no interest for me.

Maybe she means you have to be computer literate to use the PM features. :P

Post Re: email
I guess so. My kids think that email is so archaic they hardly ever use it! Interesting all the different perspectives people have. I took my first computer class in 1971 and people in my family thought I was nuts. I said it was the way of the future and we'd all need to know how to use computers some day. So, I've been using mainframes, Macs and/or PCs for almost 40 years. I guess I like to have a variety of tools at hand, and the PM for communicating with forum users is handy for me.
I get so many emails in my personal email accounts I like having the LBD messages somewhere else, plus some on the forum don't seem to have email addresses or they don't use them very much so it's handy to use with those folks. I suppose if you aren't on the forum very much it would be a pain to have to login. Lynn

Personally I find the PM works for me, as you say many don't list their e-mail addresses !
I guess it is a matter of personal preference! I say whatever works for one is OK !

Hey, Lynn..... I was selling computers in 1981-3 when I met Dale. My Ex and I had bought a Tandy for our home. I worked for what was Industrial Microsystems in Carson City. That was before Windows, of course..

I built up a large card file of businesses that intended to buy computers so two years after I married Dale in England, the company sent me a commission check based on my 'leads.'

Were Tandy's also referred to as Radio Shack TRS80s and people called them "Trash80's"? And the IBM punch cards with the counter/sorter machines? And if you wrote a continuous loop program (or whatever they were called) by mistake, when you went to pick up your green/white striped printouts it was so big you needed a forklift to get it back to your office? Wow, that was in the days of the dinosaurs for sure.
I hope you got a big check!
Irene - I think that you can only put certain email addresses on the forum - I have never been able to get mine on because I don't use my yahoo, google, etc. emails and it won't let me put in my .edu email address. I am sure others have experienced similar issues. Lynn

Yes, Radio Shack. And sometimes, I would forget the order of a command and lose the whole input posting. Embarrassing.

Back in 1968 I was a keypunch operator. Before then I ran a borroughs sensimatic machine. It was so big I felt lost sitting in front of it. Ah those were the days. Bought an apple for our son, it was so small could hardly see the screen and very very expensive compared to today's cost. Bernie
