<div id="mb_0">hi, <br><br>I am helping a neighbor of mine watch ABC
videos. She is using PClinuxOS, which I have installed for her. She
was previously on Windows 98, and that became so buggy that she allowed
me to blow away Windows on her old box, and then she has been using
Mepis Linux for about 10 months. And then she ran into this problem
with not being able to watch video here:

you go to that page, please click on "watch full episodes" to reproduce
the problem. I have already downloaded the Win32codecs for her via
Synaptic, as well as quicktime, etc. <br><br>Coincidentally, this woman is 62 years old, so she is the
mythical grandmother that everyone is saying can't use Linux. Well,
she has proven them wrong for more than 10 months now. <br><br>Coincidentally, her name is Patricia, and she will be coming with me tomorrow to the SF-LUG meeting at 11 am at Javacat. Her email address is above. I am at her house now, and Patricia says that she likes to lurk on a list and read a list for a while before participating. So you might not see that much activity from her at first!
<br><br>I will also be bringing another friend who was recently introduced to Linux. Her name is Cheryl, and Cheryl runs SF Freecycle!!! How cool is that! <br><br>Both Patricia and Cheryl are on PClinuxOS, and both of them got computers from through the school project.
that for the DTP I am going to need to interview lots of grandmothers.
I think I need to travel again, and do a grandmother tour of the US.
Maybe that will be for a special episode after we have finished the
<br><br>Thanks in advance.<br>
