How dumb can one be?
« on: April 04, 2015, 01:35:25 pm »
I am 67 years old.  That being said, I am technically proficient...I've forgotten more than these young "whippersnappers" have learned.  <Ha!> 

I have just had an incident (an old man incident) that embarrasses me (!) regarding earphones.  I, three times in as many days, plugged my earphones into the improper jack.  Dadgummit!  I could hear something but it wasn't near loud enough.  The microphone jack does have audio, as I've found out.  It's just not normal volume.   

Were all my problems as simple to solve....  <YeeHah!>

Hey Bubba!

We've all been there....I thought my lawnmower had died, turned out that I had plugged in the hedge trimmer and not the lawnmower....Took longer than you'd think to figure it out  :shy:

Time for some colour coded cables or a label maker methinks  :wink:
