    Ole Riverrat was setting around the house last night when I asked my daughter if she had a newspaper handy. "This is the 21st century Dad," she said. "We don't waste money on newspapers. Here, use my I Pad."

    I can tell you this: I don't think that fly knew what hit him

    An IPad may be as good as newspaper for starting up the fire in my smoker, but I have the feeling that I'd come out on the losing end if I used it. Besides, one IPad isn't large enough to cover the surfaces in contact when uniting colonies. Just how many of them would I need to merge two full sized hive boxes? :lol:

    Your situation reminded me of this video:

    Iddee Why is it some times when I post a video link, only the link shows up high lighted and other times the youtube video window shows with the video ready to play?

    First, I don't know computers. Maybe Charles or Austin can help.
    Second, I don't have sound on my computer, so I don't do anything with videos.
    I watch a few to try and interpret without sound, but don't think I have ever posted one.

    Iddee you are missing out on over 1/2 the enjoyment of watching one of JP's bee removals, watching it with out sound.

    JP can you include closed captioning for those that don't have sound?

    For a man with over 8800 posts on the forum, it seems to me that you deserve to have a sound system added to your computer. The improvement is like going from 2D to 3D. Simple sound systems are replaced so often that I'm sure someone on the forum has a few retired "spares" that they could send you. No intent to turn you into a "beggar". Aside from the fact tht you deserve it, you'd be helping someone clear out some hard to come by storage space.
    It's not nice of me, from a distance to do this, but how about someone Statewide making a gift mailing to Iddee of a speaker or two.
    ​You gotta work fast on this--before Iddee removes this post

    I have the sound on the computer turned off.

    1... It's in the living room where my wife's tv is.

    2... The sound system I don't have fits on each side of my head and comes naturally.

    1. That's begging the issue--Do you have speakers to use should you want to turn on your sound when your wife leaves the room?
    2. That's a good potential alternative--earphones.

    I have working speakers and earphones. I still cannot hear the videos, even with hearing aids.

    I'm guessing this resulted from a lot of this in your youth, eh Iddee? :wink:
