Hehe, cool, neat seeing you here on the new list Joseph. Here's my own hopes and wishes that this list becomes just as enjoyable as the NVDA one is for me. :P

Hi all,
Sorry if I'm late to the party...
A few things come to my mind as I'm reading the list archives for both
For the past few years, I was a moderator of a number of lists and have seen
ups and downs of this position. As a moderator of a number of lists now
(including two NVDA lists), I always remind myself to be kind and listen to
members, as I felt a list admin sets precedence for others to follow. In
terms of moderation philosophy, I believe in gentle, offlist diplomacy and
how offlist mannerisms matter more for the reputation of a list
administrator. I also believe that an admin should invoke his or her
privilege sparingly (I think it is better for a moderator to listen to
conversations than run the entire show), and to serve not as a judge in
disputes but a counsellor (trying to understand disagreements and let
members resolve disputes themselves offlist). Lastly, I also believe a
moderator should be willing to step down and keep his or her promise to stay
as a member, especially if the reputation of the list is in jeopardy (as it
is, we can agree that Blind Tech will face criticism because of what
happened this weekend, and this latest incident may put that list and its
reputation (and Michael's) in jeopardy).
As of now, I'm subscribed to both lists to monitor what's going on (I'm
still reading Blind Tech archives to fully understand the backstory behind
the birth of this list).

Haha, mean? I'm not sure that I've ever seen Carlos being mean to anyone. :D
I can certainly understand any frustrations he, or anyone else may have had
with the bt list, as I'd had a few of my own, but, he's always kept his
messages polite, as far as I can remember. I certainly wish the best for
this list, the bt list, and any others that offer help towards others who
need it, but, seeing the back and forth bs that seemed to be common for
BlindTech was beginning to get a little silly.
Certainly my thanks for this new one, and here's to it being able to give
the same amount, if not more, help to those of us who like these sorts of
things. hehe Take it easy.

No I didn't argue with him. My common about the new co-owner and his
response were both public.

Hi Carlos,
Ah, so did you even have a chat with him? Because, when I asked why
you were banned, I got a don't know. But if you had an argument with
him, too, he must have known. So this means he has hidden it. Am I
missing something here?

With all due respect, Michael seems to go through one of these
phases about every few months. And this is not the first time he
has given the list away and then taken control back within a day.
The fact is that his new co-list owner was rude to me in private
messages and when I commented on this fact, he immediately went on
the defensive and was quite rude himself. And when I defended
myself and responded to her rudeness, she immediately banned me from
the list so no thanks.

You, Carlos, or others who may have left Blindtech may want to
reconsider. Michael Capell has gotten the list back and has sent
out an announcement indicating that there will be very few rules
and that rules will be greatly relaxed. The very brief owners are
no longer either owners or moderators.

Hello Kimsan,
On behalf of myself and slice bread, I thank you. Welcome to the
list and I'm glad to hear you worked out your problem.

Lol, I hate when I do that...?
I always post a question and then right when I send it, I figure
out my own problem. However, with it being 4 in the morning now, I
have no idea how I got there... I was just tabbing and down
arrowing and poof there it was lol.

But, I couldn't figure this out ever since getting windows 10 which
is a few weeks now.
So, since my brain isn't functioning right now, lets just forget
this email ever came through...

I signed up here, because I think carlos is the coolest thing since
slice bread.

Anyways, apparently, I'm still having trouble accessing my c drive
an any other external drives when plugging them into my laptop
running windows 10.
My daughter says, when I tell her, for example, I'm trying to
locate my passport, which is the name of my 1tb external hd, she
clicks on the mouse and then jaws says this pc, so how can I get to
this pc via the keyboard"This pc is in the file explorer which use
to show my c drive, dvd drive etc, but it's not showing any of that.
