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

Hi All,

I am looking for Recommendations for Blue-Tooth Headsets,

specifically over-the-ear.

I have an in-ear headset, but I find it to be uncomfortable and people I
talk to

using this headset, tell me that my voice sounds muffled.

I plan on using this primarily with my cell phone, but would like to switch
to other devices from time to time.

Does anyone have any first-hand experience with an over-the ear headset?

Thanks in advance,

Re: putting a program icon back on the desktop

Yes, and if you do as I do in many instances, instead of opening File Explorer and navigating via that method, I will deselect the desktop icons, right click the desktop, and then pick shortcut from "new" in the context menu. 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. Theare probably 3 or 4 different ways to skin this particular cat.

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.

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.

It may not have to do with the DVD drive itself. Run through the items here first. If you have a USB drive to test with that be easier.

Also, you could try updating the drives firmware, but since you have disc validate enabled and that passed and byte-for-byte failed, would suggest something other than the drive/discs.

As I said unfortunately I don't really have much of an opinion. It doesn't
particularly offend me so if anyone wants Rob to change this practice,
you're going to have to convince him yourself LOL. I can see both points of
view, but I don't consider it a serious enough issue to intervene.

There is not going to be a resolution to this, but this beast belongs
to Carlos so whatever he says, goes.

Just wait until someone writes an entire book and Rob responds lol.

I just don't like it but it's not a hill I choose to die on.

I rather like his format since you know right away what he is answering.

My coworker does that all the time, but she's 72 with heart problems.


And haha to Genos correction for bottom posting!

It's quicker to say bottom posting compared to whatever he wrote.

LOL I don't believe I've ever had anyone sighted jump up and down and
scream at me about formatting. Does that really happen? It sounds
like these may be some overly dramatic sighted people.

Seriously though, I'm not sure if I have much of an opinion about this
issue one way or the other. I personally don't have a problem
determining where Rob's posts begin, but that is most likely because
I've usually just finished reading the message to which he is
replying. I suppose technically it could be considered bottom
posting, but this practice is common on forums and it is always
referred to as quoting. In fact, most forum software has a link or
button associated with each post specifically for quoting.

Well he does he says so and so wrote and ten his reply is right below
the what so and so wrote. I myself find this very helpful this way I
know exactly who and what he is responding to. So I myself would
like him to continue to do this. In fact I wish others would do this.
I don't myself do this but I should as it makes things much more clear!

Hi all,

"What's in a name?" WS I'm calling it bottom posting because it
comes at the bottom of the quoted material. I have a problem with
this kind of posting, especially, as happened in one post, when the
poster starts his own post on the same line as the original post.
It's really aggravating!
It would help immensely if Rob could at least do us the courtesy of
typing a few stars or number signs or something so we
*know* when his post starts! Or, at the very least, start the new
post on a separate line. Formatting! Formatting! No wonder sighted
people jump up and down and scream at us blind because we don't
understand formatting.
In
this case, the formatting is crucial.

Shoot, guys, you asked me to quote previous posts in my own email,
and I'm trying hard to comply with your polite request. It would be
very nice if others could do the same thing.

Ann P.

if you just down arrow two or three times and let a bit read of the
second and third lines, if there is a third line, you will quickly
find the new message. It isn't bottom posting. it is posting a
message below two or three lines of a previous message being
responded to. The quoted material seldom exceeds three lines.

I also am not a fan of bottom posting, and if a message arrives that has it
I just delete it.
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.
Cheers

Hi all,

OK, OK, I will keep quiet. I may have to ask for clarification, but if you
guys don't mind ...
