You can do the same thing if you own a router with a USB port. Many newer
routers include one.

Subject: Re: [TechTalk] An alternative to Drop Box


The Lima device is connected to all of your WyFy connected devices, and
therefore can be accessed from anywhere, just like you can access Dropbox
on any device from anywhere. You are able to connect to the Lima just like
you sign in to Dropbox. Below are a couple of questions that may help, you
can also go to the Lima website at:

www.MeetLima.com

Here is the content that I mentioned, the "Help" section of the website
will provide some much more detailed information:

------------------

Do I get any online storage with Lima?

Lima doesn’t provide you any online storage. The fact that you don't store
your data online doesn't mean that you can't access your data from outside
your house. Your Lima is connected to your Internet router which means you
can access all your files from wherever you are in the world just like you
can from the cloud.

Because of the cloud’s limited capabilities, all of your storage is at
home, provided by the hard drives you connect to your Lima and computers:
if you connect a 3TB hard-drive, you'll have 3TB of storage.


How does Lima differ from cloud services such as Dropbox, One Drive,
Google Drive, iCloud etc?

Lima is different from Cloud services for many reasons: It’s private: your
data is stored on the hard drive attached to your Lima device instead of
being stored on an unknown and distant server. This way, you keep total
control over your data and your privacy is protected: no third-party
server, no crawling of your files, etc. Nobody can access your data but
yourself. More space available: Cloud services need local storage on your
computer. If you want to put 200 GB on the Cloud, it will take 200 GB on
your computer. With Lima, you are no longer limited by your device’s
storage. Have a 2TB hard drive? Then you can put, access and use 2TB of
files on all your devices. It's yours: you buy a Lima once, get a hard
drive that will fit your storage needs, and that's it. No monthly fees.
You're not renting space on someone else's computer: you truly have your
own storage.

-----------------

You can still have a free Dropbox account if you like to share files
between other people not connected to your network. Two GB of storage just
isn't enough for me to back up what I need to, therefore I have been
paying for the 1 TB plan at $9.99 per month. In 10 months, I will have
paid for the Lima device itself.

Yes but don't know how that would work with sharing with everyone and how
portable is this? As this is one of the purpose of cloud storage is to
have
your stuff everywhere. Also does this require a power supply? If so then
this would make it portability not very good as if you have to have power
for this thing . I do agree it would be a good backup device .

There is now a device that you can connect to your router and access via
WyFy called Lima. You have to connect your own external hard drives to
this
device, but it is accessible by any type of device, Windows, Mac, I
Device,
or Android device. It will support up to 7 TB of storage, and the cost for
the Lima only is $99. There is currently a waiting list to purchase the
device. Sounds like a great alternative to the cloud, and also a great
back
up device. If you have some external hard drives available, less than 1
year
of say Dropbox service at 1 TB will pay for the device. I am on the list
for
one now.

These apparently are not the same glasses that I am referring to. The ones that I mean are capable of acting like an OCR device, translating text in places like on a sign, a restaurant menu, a building directory or a street sign and there are speakers in the ear pieces that speak the text to you. I do not remember what they are called, but they were only put on the market a few months ago. If anyone knows the name of what I am speaking of, please post it for the list. Thanks.

Some are mp3 files but some are in written form and one or two are series, such as hours long Internet tutorials. 

 

I don't know what the Blind Geek Zone accepts but it is probably considerably more restrictive than what I currently have on Drop Box.  I might consider using Google Drive.  I'd have to learn how to do it. 

 

Downloading from google Drive appears to be easy, though a bit different from what people already know about but a brief explanation should be all that is needed to allow them to do so.

Hi, a thought here. Why not just upload your files to the BGZ (Blind Geek Zone site) that is if they are podcast. Another solution and it is not free is to create your own site and have them up on it. You could start small and then build up as needed if you ended up with a lot of files and band width. You can also use Google drive or One drive but it is not easy to share files with them as it is with drop box. You can do it but there is a lot more steps. I don’t know if they have a band width cap or not. I don’t know if you could by paying for a drop box account would solve the band width problem or not but I wuld think it would for the most part.

SendSpace free accounts have a 300 MB file size limit and downloads expire after a month of inactivity.  Also, the constant ads which are potentially malicious in some cases, make SendSpace an almost useless alternative in my opinion.

Evidently, some downloadsI offer are becoming well enough known that I should consider getting a higher capacity service.  I'm using a free Drop Box account and I just found out my public links are generating too much traffic and are temporarily disabled.  I would consider placing certain files I believe to be popular and/or are also large files on an alternative free service.

My iPhone 6 is doing fine on Verizon, but I wanted a free or very low cost backup phone service exclusively for phone calls and text messages.

I keep getting promotional announcements from Freepop. In the past, I had ignored these because I thought that Freepop ran exclusively on the Sprint network which I think is a variant of CDMA. But now Freepop is offering a low cost sim and states it will run on most GSM phones, so they must have purchased space on either A T and T or on T Mobile.

I guess what I want to know is whether their free service is truly free. If not, what are the gotchas? As stated previously, this is for backup, not my primary phone service.

Feedback is much appreciated.

Since I usually do not know the path to the file, I simply select browse to find it and use the tree view to do so. Nothing more than personal preference.

Although what you are describing is necessary in Explorer if you are
navigating using the treeview, but not with the listview.

I'm not sure to which browse dialog you are referring, but this is not required in the browse dialog for a new shortcut.

If Bill is using the browse function to locate the executable file to send a shortcut to the desktop, it is possible that the folder which contains this file has the "Closed/Open" access by using the left and right arrow keys. If you open the folder by pressing the right arrow key, most single files will not appear in this view. You must first press the space bar to ensure that the folder is in focus, then tab to open the contents of the folder. In this view, you will see all files and folders within the folder. Scroll down to the executable file, press the Applications key and select either "Create Shortcut" or "Send To" to get your shortcut back onto the desktop.

I'm not sure what you mean by the wizard. How exactly are you trying to add
the shortcut back to the desktop?

Hi Everyhone,
I finally got around to see if I could get the dvd audio icon back up on the desktop, and when I went ot the browse, that program wasn't in the list. So, I don't know exactly what to do about telling the wizzard where the program is, any help please?

Yes, I will delete a fully bottom-posted message. With messages with
just a line of quote, I just sort-of grin and bear it. A bottom-posted
message looks like somebody sent a blank reply with the messages
underneath, so that if you want to see what the person wrote, you have to
scroll all the way through all the replies until you get to the bottom
and find what the person wrote in this message. Can't be bothered!

I also am not a fan of bottom posting, and if a message arrives that has

Now if this message has information that maybe of interest to me I guess
it is bad luck for me for not reading it.
Then again if I could of helped that person it is again bad luck to them
for bottom posting it.

Re: bottom posting and formatting was An alternative to Drop Box

Jeremy <jeremy.richards7@...>
 

I think the poster might satisfy others by placing a blank line between the
original post and his input. As is, with the amount of messages one must
read on a daily basis, its lots of work for the reader to have to sort out
what information came first. Also, deleting of the less than greater than
signs can help. Once a reader comes across the first couple of less than
greater than signs, he or she will immediately conclude it is a top posted
message and immediately delete it. This means the poster has just wasted his
or her time composing the message since the message will be immediately
deleted.

Those who do not include the original message below their response are
likely wasting their time too since a single message does not include any
context whatsoever, so it appears as though she is posting something totally
random and their message is subsequently deleted.

Re: MSWord 2007 Line spacing command

Flor Lynch
 

Fanus,
 
There was a change made between Word 2003 and all prior (which you’re probably used to), and Word 2007. The spacing between lines is now 1.15, where it used to be 1.0; and the 1.15 spacing allows for there to be no blank line needed to show paragraphs. (That’s a brief summary.)
 
Peruse the article - the link to which I’m going to give below. It contains steps to change back to 2003 line spacing; or, if necessary, revert from that to 2007 line spacing.
 
 
(As usual; if the links wraps over two lines, copy/paste it into your browser’s Address Bar, inspect it and extract blank spaces if any there, then go.
 
It is also a refresher for anybody else interested in altering the default line spacing arrangements now existing in Word.

Hello list
Well, the strange thing is that even if I do a ctrl-1 at the beginning of the document and jaws says single line, when I type a document and I come on line 30 it says page 2 and if I print I get 2 pages. This puzzles me and I long for my old trusted word perfect 5.1 in the days of DOS.

For some reason ctrl-1 does not work? I may also ask: the current view is
print view so is this maybe why ctrl-1 does not work?. Is this normal or
is there another view in which one must create documents?
