Joe can I be your Myspace friend? I'm on 58 at the moment.

Consider it done, Des. I've never asked anyone to be my friend. (Except Tracey Hoptin when I was 6). How do you actually do it?

Yeah but you're a friend of Seasick Steve, indeed, you're the man who introduced me to Steve, so I'll be proud if you accept my invitation.

I'm off to extend it now, watch me run. Well, in the present circumstances, sort of hobble...

I went to look for you, Joe, but 'search' failed to find Joe Cushley, Balling the Jack or any combination of the two - will you try it the other way round - I'm djjackdaw

Des, that sure is a nice Vieux Farka Toure video you have on there. I think my computer is too slow for videos online for some reason. It just starts & stops. How does he make that guitar sound like it does?

try clicking the pause button (same as the play button) on the player to give the video clip time to download (indicated by the red or dark coloured strip that should fill in beyond the pointer that indicates your progress playing the clip). When that coloured or dark strip is filled-in (or just give it say 4 minutes if you don't understand this convoluted wordiage) - click the play (or pause) button and voila !

I've thought off & on about trying this. I feel shy about it. it would be a good way to show some stuff, if i have enough to show. I wouldn't want much personal information there. I could put up both art & regular photos maybe. How many pictures can you put up there? I love cooresponding mostly.

Ok, I've signed up for it, but can you tell me how put my pictures on it? I'd really like to have some freinds from here, too. Still feel funny about it.

Help! I'm completely frustrated with it already. I can't figure anything out.

How do you get the ads off of it? How do you invite people?

Tell us your Mice Pace address here, and then folks here will contact you. Or check some of the addresses people have posted above, see if you want to be "friends" with them, and take it from there.

Your address is under the box under your photo (which you haven't got yet?) and should start: whateveryournameis.

If you can't see it there, sign into "Home" and there's a section that says "My URL" that shows your contact address.

You can't get rid of the adverts. That's how Murdoch makes his money from the site.

To get your pictures, etc up, maybe someone else can advise you. Basically, you upload them onto your page, but they have to be compressed sufficiently. This works for some of my photos and not for others. If I could, my photo would be of a real cat not a painted one.

Hear from you soon in that other fun-filled cyber world!

Thanks. Alot!
I sort of have it right I guess. I don't want my picture up there or any really personal things, so I did what you did Norman. I put a cat up there that looks like my Mom's cat, Simba. I put up one drawing & a photo so far, but don't know how you can see it on my profile. I'll figure this out eventually, but this site is harder than I thought. At least more people could see my pictures that way.
Sorry, I still don't know how to invite anyone.
I'd like to take off the zodiac sign though.

I might have this site figured out. I didn't know they have different ones for artists. I don't tthink the one I have shows the pictures very well. But I could just keep the other webpage I started, too.

How do those little digital players on myspace work? I have gotten the big one to work, but which button do you push to make it load & how long should it take? Is there a way to make it quit stopping & starting like the other one?

Does anyone like to use the IM thing? I've got it now, but haven't used it.
