Frustrating! 2 perfectly healthy trees being cut down by the city because he my neighbor doesn't want to clean up the leaves and pods it drops in the fall. He admitted to us he did it because he was mad the city wouldn't pick up his leaves in the spring after being gone over the winter. So I guess if we don't want to rake our leaves the city will cut the trees down.See More

    Spammertizing

    Over the last couple of months our members have swelled due to an advertising push by those who join, post an ad, provide a link, and possibly send messages to other members advocating some product or action.  While these are basically harmless if you ignore them, the Torch tech wizards cannot fully protect against the intruders.  I have eradicated about two dozen of these infidels, and will make it a practice to do so in the future.

    Downloading Videos

    Want to download videos for a thread or just to add to our Videos library, but are having a hard time figuring it out?  It's not hard once you know how to do it.  First you will need the Video's "Embed" code; on a typical video site like Youtube they will have a "share" button you need to click, you will then see an "Embed" button you need to click.  You will see the code all in blue, you need to "copy" (as in copy and paste) this code by going to your copy command.

This Ning Extension allows you to edit photos directly inside the page. You can apply useful tweaks like cropping and red-eye reduction; edit the contrast, brightness and colors; add text to photos; and — if you’re feeling creative or playful — you can add “stickers” as an overlay to…

    New Music Feature

    You will fnd a new tab on the top called Music which features a Ning application called Muziic.  It is also under the photos on the main page, and will have a list of current popular songs that you can click and play on when you feel the need for some accompanying music, and usually a You Tube video to go with it.  You can create playlists by searching for music that suits you in its vast library of tunes, and saving them-- to be loaded later.  If you don't…

    Screen Shots: A Primer

    Taking screen shots is fairly easy, and can be helpful when trying to capture a "photo" of what's on your computer at the time.  It is basically a three step process.

    1)  Get what you want to take a picture of on your screen.  Find the "PrtSc" key on your computer (usually at the top right area of your keys) and press it.  Nothing will appear to have happened.

    2)  Open MS Paint or similar software. 

    3)  Go to the "edit" tab, click, and then "paste"…

    New Features as of 1-7-10

    You will notice two new options up on the top panel, "Chat" and "Dailies".  The first allows you to chat with anyone else who is online at the time you are, and tells you how many Torchholders are online; see the bottom to see this number and the actual dialog box comes up at the bottom of the page.

    "Dailies" actually offers three options that change daily-- a daily quote, a daily horoscope, and a daily greeting.  Check these each day before or after you touch base with the rest of…
