Timo's Tall Tales

Mom is technology challenged

So I always knew Mom wasn't good with technology and things. I mean the woman has a prepaid cell phone and she wouldn't buy me the new iPad2 when I asked for it. I'm just happy that she knows how to turn the puter on and login to Catster.

So there are these new hearts in the giftshop and they are FREE. So I says, Mom let's send them to my friends. That'll be fun. Mom says, Gee Timo, I'd love to help you with that but that's gonna take furrever. So I looked into it and I saw that you can send one gift to a whole bunch of your friends AT THE SAME TIME! There is a button where you can add recipients and Mom never knew that. You just click on the picture of the friends. I showed her. Wow, that was easy, says Mom.

I have noticed that some friends send like the same text to alot of friends, and believe me, I don't mind, because we all know our human's time is limited. They have to do unnecessary things like work and clean and watch TV. But I always thought other furrs just copy and past the text they want to send and then send it to each furr individually. Yes, that would have taken furrever.

I'm glad that I looked into that and showed Mom an easier way. Maybe tomorrow I'll teach her how to write computer code, MOL.

Purrs,
Technocat Timo

Good going, Timo! I taught my mom a few things on the computer, too! I know how to do a few things on the keyboard she still can't figure out, though.

Ashlynne, you seem to be a computer whiz, just like me.
Moe, it's a green button under Step 2. I think when we first joined Catster, when it was still the old Catster, you couldn't do this. So we never found out about it.

Guess all Moms are the same....slowly we help Mom figure things out, but believe me there are so many things Mom still hasn't figured out yet...and she even has friends email her the instructions and she looks at it and it is too much for her...guess it is the age thing for my Mom....she doesn't like all of the electronic things they have now...so her doing this is an accomplishment...

Mom did know about sending multiple gifts with the same message we figured that out a while ago
