Filterin the computer, will it hurt?

Penny Golden
 

A friend of mine has just got her phone service working in the new house. They broke her little phone jack that had 2 receptacles for plugging in both the modem and the phone. Well, she does have a filter that she uses to put the phones through. Will it hurt to plug the computer modem thing into the other filtered slot?
I hope I'm making it clear. I didn't think it would hurt to put the modem plug into an empty spot on that filter, which has two slots.
Will it hurt? If so, just let me know and we'll get her a regular phone plug with 2 plain spots on it.
You can tell i'm just an old lady and not a hacker. Sorry.

Regarding getting a renewal of JAWS on-line. I did this in January of this year, in relation to my new PC where I had to get another activation key to get out of demo mode. I filled out the FS Activate Form, and explained my reasons for reqquesting another key, and to reset my count, I having no keys left. I got an email shortly afterwards, saying that my keys had been reset, and that activation could take up to 24 hours to take effect. Fortunately, it was just a few hours after that that I was able to reauthorize JAWS using the FS Activation setup. (My serial number is in their online database, and I can see it there.)

The FS representative couldn't explain why my online attempts failed since she found my serial number in their data base without any trouble.
I told her the steps that I followed and she did not say anything like that's not how you do it. She just couldn't explain while I was unsuccessful. She said renewing online is supposed to be possible.
Maybe someone else will have better luck renewing online.

wanted to renew the SMA to be able to get JAWS 17. I thought I
remembered that one could now renew a SMA on the Freedom Scientific

to purchase or renew, but I got a "Our records indicate you have not
registered your software product with Freedom Scientific. Please take
a few moments to register your product with us" message when I typed
in my JAWS seriel number in the edit box that came up. I'm 98%
positive that registering my copy when I first purchased JAWS was one
of the first things I did when my copy was installed. I'm afraid
that attempting to reregister my copy will only confuse things and
wonder if it would be better to wait until tomorrow and call FS?

another question about groups.io

Rebecca Ilniski <rilniski@...>
 

Hi all. If you own a group on groups.io, is there a way to send a message from the owner address and not have your name shown in the message when it goes out and just have the owner address shown.
Let's say I own a list called apple-chat. I go up to the groups.io website and post a message from the apple-chat+owner@groups.io address in order to send it to the list. When I receive the message the from field still has my name Rebecca Ilniski but the apple=chat+owner address is the address where it is coming from since I posted it from the website. I'm asking this question because a friend and I both own a list together and we want to be able to post any administrative messages from the owner address without our names showing up and just have aoole-chat-owner@groups.io show in the from field instead of our names. If there's a way for us to set this up, please let me know where I need to go to set up and what needs to be changed. Thanks so much.

I did not get the touch screen because I am a keyboard user and probably always will be. You can get a two in one which doubles as a tablet or a laptop but, of course that adds to the price. There are lots of choices and everyone is different so good luck and I hope you find the machine that works best for you.

Hi.
I've stayed a bit lower end and am very happy.
I've probably got around $700 in my lenovo server desktop with the
server grade intel i3 and 12 GB of ram.
It's a very good machine and runs well.
Plus with a good ssd in it it's very fast.
However, this question was specifically about laptops and tablets so
here's my oppinion.
Unless you are going to be walking around with a laptop or tablet i
would go laptop, for the following reasons.
A nicer keyboard. Cheaper.
Also, a lot of new laptops have touch screens available now so you can
still have the touch interface.
Here is a link to a midrange toshiba pc that i just bought this week.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TP5AXMQ?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=od_aui_detailpages00
All that i need to do now is replace the drive with an ssd and upgrade
it to 16 GB ram and i have another system that's comparible to my desktop.
As a bonus this one has a touch screen and i'll have a good system for
about $750

As you've probably guessed by now, i really wouldn't pay for a $1000
tablet over this.
If i want a tablet i'll buy an android tablet and be happy.
I prefer android's touch interface to windows anyway so that's a win for
me.

Hi Austin,

Yes you definitely can use NVDA with a touch screen.

NVDA 2015.3 User Guide The command quick reference in NVDA's help
screen has the touch gesture for various commands listed.

Arguably the best Windows hybrid is Microsoft's own Surface Pro 3. The

Surface Pro 4 is due out in October, so potentially if you can wait
until then you can either buy that, or hopefully the 3 should be
reduced in price with the new release. Here's some info on what's
known on the Surface Pro 4 for now:
http://www.techtimes.com/articles/82638/20150908/surface-pro-4-features-pricing-release-date-and-everything-we-know-so-far-about-microsofts-upcoming-tablet.htm

And if you're interested in looking further afield than the Surface
pro, here's a list of 10 other hybrids:
http://www.techradar.com/au/news/mobile-computing/laptops/best-2-in-1-laptops-top-5-hybrid-laptops-reviewed-1258451

Now whether a hybrid is best for you is something you'll find as many
different opinions on as you'll find people with opinions. For my 2c:

Why you should buy a 2 in 1?
- Lighter (if you leave the keyboard at home)
- Intuitive (With a bit of an idea of layout, it can be easier dragging

your finger around the screen to find something than knowing the
keyboard shortcut).
- Ability to use a keyboard and so have all the advantages of a laptop

when you need it.

Why you should buy a proper laptop?
- Screen doesn't drain as much battery, particularly if you mostly use

keyboard functions.
- Cheaper for the same power (and arguably if you don't actually a need

a laptop, a desktop is cheaper again - I looked a couple of weeks ago,

and for $2,000 I could buy a Surface Pro 3, or I could spend about
$1,000 on a laptop or $500 on a desktop all with similar specs, or for

about $8.000 I could get a desktop with say 32 GB ram over the 8GB of
the others).
- Consistent interface (you can set Windows 10 to ALWAYS use tablet or

desktop mode, or let Continuum switch as you connect and disconnect the

keyboard) and you won't go to start writing and realise you didn't
bring the keyboard.

In the end it's up to how you think you'll use it. If the Surface Pro

3 or 4 is within your budget, it would be a great machine, but then
again, if you don't really need it, you can get something else you can

definitely do all your work on for less $$$.

I'm still debating whether to buy a 2 in 1, a laptop, or just stick
with my hard working desktop myself!

Regards

Quentin.

Hi,

I have noticed with all the new tech related lists popping up in the last few weeks that some are using groups.io and some are using other methods for creating groups and mailing lists. I have also noticed that some individuals have their own domains which leads me to my point for writing to this list in particular. I hosted my own domain a long time ago on Dreamhost back when I was on ACB radio Interactive about ten years ago. I also had sight back then and have used a number of other hosting sites when creating web sites for various businesses back when I could see to use applications such as Dreamweaver CS3 by adobe.

Now as I consider getting myself another spot on the web and I have no vision I am wondering what individuals are doing these days if they want to create their own virtual home away from home. I’m thinking of a place where I could both host a domain and store my own podcasts. And one that is accessible so that I could manage it myself.

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi.
I've played with joomla some but unfortunately can't recommend it.
I've never liked the idea of word press as it's comes to close to a blogging platform.
I just recently discovered droople and like what i'm seeing so far.
My hosting provider is a company called arvixe.
https://www.arvixe.com/
They give you a cpanel control panel which is completely accessible and your choice of cms systems.
They have 3 different webmail options 2 of which are reasonably accessible and a third that is usuable.
In addition, you can manage the mail using your standard mail program using pop or imap.

Both wordpress and drupal have their own terminology so there is a

As far as hosting providers go, it's a mixed bag. Some features are
completely accessible and others not so friendly. If you want to try
before you buy then just pay for one month of service. I've been told
www.hostgator.com is very inexpensive and accessible.

I manage a few sites and use filezilla as my ftp client and use
outlook on my pc to manage the mail, so it can be done.

And if your not looking to get bogged down in the whole web dev thing
then may I suggest using www.fiverr.com to find someone to set it up

fiverr.com (no I didn't misspell it, there are two r's.) Is

just send a message to the support team letting them know it's
inaccessible and could they post the feedback for me and I've never
had any complaints or problems.

I'm using wordpress to build my site. It can be accessible as you'd like,

my opinion.

It's just a matter of finding the right theme, plugin, etc.

However, some will say aint nobody got time for that.

I like it though vs what me and my partner were doing previously.

Hi,

I have noticed with all the new tech related lists popping up in the last
few weeks that some are using groups.io and some are using other methods
for
creating groups and mailing lists. I have also noticed that some
individuals
have their own domains which leads me to my point for writing to this list
in particular. I hosted my own domain a long time ago on Dreamhost back
when
I was on ACB radio Interactive about ten years ago. I also had sight back
then and have used a number of other hosting sites when creating web sites
for various businesses back when I could see to use applications such as
Dreamweaver CS3 by adobe.

Now as I consider getting myself another spot on the web and I have no
vision I am wondering what individuals are doing these days if they want to
create their own virtual home away from home. I'm thinking of a place where
I could both host a domain and store my own podcasts. And one that is
accessible so that I could manage it myself.

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Merv

sweet.

That has never happened before so he is working on that.

Maybe removing that ~ would help?

I read about this awhile ago but I don't recall the details. Yahoo adopted
an antispam measure that caused e-mail lists not to function properly for
those using Yahoo Mail. Some other e-mail providers adopted the same
antispam measure after Yahoo did. As a result, some e-mail lists don't show
the full address of the e-mail list member sending the message. It's to get
around the spam block system which sees a lot of list mail as spam.
