So Dad comes home from work tonight and tells me to make sure I’m all caught up. Then he says I should blog it…I think I’ll need some help….
X 1. Get Flock 1.2.x
X 2. Set Flock preferences / options
Note to Dad – The options window gets in my way and won’t let me scroll?? What do I do?
Dad’s edit – You’ll have to do the steps you can see, then close the options window by clicking the “okay” button. Scroll down the catch-up page for the next steps – then open the options window again and make the next set of changes. Repeat those steps until you’re done…
X 3. Make Flock faster
X 4. Install the add-ons
X 5. Sign up to Twitter
X 6. Follow Ed’s, Dan’s and Gurubob’s Twitter
Note to Dad – We already did some of this stuff…
Dad’s edit – It’s like being in Boy Scouts kiddo – Be Prepared.
X 7. Setup TwitterBar
X 8. Install Twhirl (and Adobe Air if it’s not already on the computer)
X 9. Connect Twhirl to your Twitter account
Note to Dad – Twhirl isn’t working, it wants to do an “upgrade” then there is an error…
Dad’s edit – I’ll look at it tonight – okay it’s fixed…
Another note to Dad – Dad, I forgot my Twhirl password…
Dad’s edit – Your Twhirl password is really your Twitter password – try that first. If that doesn’t work – You can go to the twitter sign-in page (http://twitter.com) and click the link that says “forgot password.” Type in your e-mail, then go check your e-mail for your password. You should be able to change it from there…Again, that’s the password you’ll use to link your Twhirl to your Twitter.
