Tech Tuesday: HELP!

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

We are gonna do something a little different this Tech Tuesday. I am asking YOU for help. I know, while I have fancy numbers of readers, no one is really reading this thing and I won't get any help. BUT, there may be some stranger out there that is listening!

My tech life is exploding right now and Google can't find solutions to my issues. So here's what I'm looking for...

1. Comcast Channel Guide
On Saturday night my channels on the television guide to my TV disappeared and I can't get them back. It's a Comcast box and I've reset, unplugged, hit buttons, hit the machine, etc. I am forced to manually hit the up button on the remote - and that isn't fun. I had to go from five to 76 just to watch "Teen Mom." Oh and I lost one of the remotes too, but I don't think you can help me with that. No, I haven't called Comcast. I don't have time to sit on the phone for an hour.

2. AIM Express Buddy List
Since Monday, I am unable to see the names of anyone on my AIM Buddy List. They can IM me, but I can't see if they are online or not. Yes, I still use AIM to chat with friends. You probably think I can't see names because AIM is so 1996, but I have co-workers on here too. I've done a lot of searches on this and the only thing I can come up with is that my Java is too old on this computer. Help me little yellow AOL man!

Thank you for any and all help/advice in advance!
