I am still trying to learn how to find my way around the "HUB"   I have been spending too much time searching and not finding.  Example: Just trying to update my own data, finding where it is --  and also to enter a so-called "avatar"
GRRR!   (Navigating this is all new to me)

    HI Hans!  If you click your name at the top right of the screen, you can make all the updates you'd like. Is there something in particular you would like to edit?  You can also upload your avatar in the same drop down menu under "update picture and avatar." Let me know if I can help.

    Thank you very much for your kind reply, Kip.  --  Since then I have “conquered” some of the obstacles – I even managed to upload an “avatar” – but it took me several hours until I succeeded.  You see, the way it happened, everything I (sort of) learned about how to cope with software was by the “school of hard knocks”  and as a result I end up doing a lot of fumbling.   If it weren’t that it has become necessary to use the HUB, I sure wouldn’t.   It may help when I tell you that, although I am on campus regularly, I actually retired about 18 years ago.  When we (faculty) one day – likely before you were born –  got computers plopped on our desks (“DTI” -640k of memory) I  of course between classes tried to learn what to do with it.  ---  And, as it turns out, I am still trying.   There was no course, no introduction, nothing of the sort.  Although, by that time I had written many routines (several thousand lines of code) in FORTRAN for use in my communications classes (Fourier Analysis, Bode plots, frequency response, filters, etc.) but it is different when you create a program yourself – everything is visible. . That doesn’t help much with all the packaged monster items (Facebook, Hub, etc.) where you in effect have to figure out what the programmer had in mind.


    My first problem with the HUB was how to just plain log out --  Well, someone told me where that was hidden.  So I am getting better, -- the fight continues.   ---   And with your kind reply, Kip, I thought I should give you a little explanation.   – In fact, I will Cc Emily Vogel on that, because she has also been very kind and patient with me, trying to help me with the HUB.  ---  So much for a “feelings-dump”  Thanks again
