Default Free Yahoo Box

Yahoo's mail allows attachments and its free-zipping it for reduced size is a good idea though. Most mail attachments have size limits.

Haha! Maybe you should have been called Mr. Yahoo? The other things won't send it because its an Executable File and could be a Virus; its only safe. Everybody allows attachments; not only Yahoo (dbuh).

Default You are getting on my nerves

Ya know Kalthorn I hate Know it alls that don't know crap and then go out of there way to talk crap to people who are trying in a genuine way to help people. Your know dahs don't help newbies and only serve to irrate and make you look like a jackass. I don't care about your personal preferences, your splendid grammer and spelling or your idiotic comments.
Take a flying leap and land on a pile of glass.

You cannot use IM for transfer files unless you KNOW that either computer is not through a router.

If a router is in the way, then a specific port needs to be open. However, opening a port also is an unsafe way to use your computer.

There are different ports that can be opened and routers are different.

I have one port open that allows my game server to accessed directly. I also have a firewall to look for unsual activity.

Routers and ports are meant to keep out the unwanted, but the bad side is that it also keeps out people that you may not want to keep out.

P.S. The router may not be at the end users, it may also be at the ISP location.

He's probably taken our advise and not told us that its worked; its damned annoying when they don't reply!

I can't help it if I'm right can I?

Dah? I don't make spelling mistakes that often therefore my Yahoo (dbuh) does not mean Duh - it means Dbuh which if they taught you anything at school is a witty insinuation of Pbuh which means Peace be upon him and is used my Muslims to refer to Muhammid. Dbuh by obvious thought means Death be upon him refering to Yahoo.

Only people who use words such as, and I only take a brief description of your stupid words when I say, Crap and Jackass.

Good for you; my grammar and spelling are far from splendid - its only splendid compared to your grammar and spelling. Hehe! How kind of you.

Lol; thats a good one I'll have to remmember it next time I want to insult any of my pets.

Nah; you're a nice person. I'm sure Yahoo has its ups as well as its downs - I just like to crack a joke from time to time to make it a more happy and laid back place. What was it you do again? No hard feelings, eh?
