Have you ever tried "Swype" on your Evo for text entry?

Its a great way to share pictures of kills or rifles too so that might be kind of cool.

Re: Do you have a Facebook account?

I can see how different people can view the "electronic age" differently. If a person has never used a computer much, if at all, then a lot of what some people embrace now would seem like useless junk and would be frowned on.

I was into electronics before home computers became available. I had the first Model 1 that Radio Shack came out with and have never looked back. I was into pre-cell phones before they were available by using what amounted to large hand held units that functioned via a repeater on a ridge outside of town and only worked locally.

Before I retired I purchased and installed million dollar computerized systems in an industrial environment, had 2 laptops and 3 desktop PCs in my office, carried a PDA, Cell phone and just about anything else that was available and had a mobile phone in my truck in addition to the rest of them. I guess if you grew up with the beginnings of this current electronic age then it might be a little easier and feel more comfortable but I can also tell you that if you have kids, or grandkids, and don't get on the electronic bandwagon then you will find that things aren't like they used to be and for some, that may be too late.

What is now considered rude by some is considered to be THE way to communicate and yes, the times they are a changin. If my kids and grandkids consider texting to be their preferred method of communication then guess what, I've got unlimited texting so I'm always in touch with them. The phone calls are still there so I look at it as getting texts in addition to the phone calls.

The electronic age of communications is something that we all should get comfortable with, at least to a certain degree. We no longer pick up the phone and listen to see if anyone is on the party line before we dial a phone number that would look foreign to young people now.

Yes, FB has allowed me to find a lot of my friends from my Army days as well as keep in touch with family, friends, and coworkers. It couldn't hurt to have the extra exposure for LRH
