Costco and Hospital

Our usual Tuesday visit at the hospital went very well. Our friend is improving greatly.
Before we went to see him we stopped off at Costco. I still don't know my way around there it is so big. Cliff and I have been using Skype quite a bit but only had one web cam for 2 computers :-( We rectified that problem today and bought a Logitech webcam at Costco. I love new gadgets but we just spent about an hour getting everything set up. For some reason I could not hear Cliff talking through the head set. It took quite a bit of trial and error before it worked OK. Hope it stays that way.

I am also having a bit of trouble with the new mouse. The pointer wants to roam and sometimes it is almost impossible to point to what I want to select. I tried different mouse pads and other surfaces but nothing makes a difference. Somehow I must figure that one out, but not tonight.
Right now I want to watch a program about a journey to travel the Canadian coast. Should be interesting.
Good night everybody ☺

Try going into mouse program in your computer, speed and size of the point should be able to be changed there.

I love webcams - glad you got number two hooked up. I recently called my brother. They could see us but we could not see them. We could hear them.

Turns out, they have two computers and only one webcam.... :)

They should do what you guys did!

Also make sure you don't have two mice plugged in, I had that problem once, marc had a wireless one plugged in and I was using the laptop one.He was sitting on couch moving it around the screen when I was trying to start a program...tricky one he is!
