Hi Beth,
Just wondering, what's wrong with your BN?
PS. I started with an mpower running 7.5, I will never forget that thing. After that, I got an apex (which I still have) and I'm now on a braille sense u2. Although, I do want something mainstream. But then again, I don't regret note takers, they are the best thing to carry around in school. And they give full privacy, at all times.

Hello. My name is Beth. I live in Denver, Colorado. I have been an avid
tech geek for as long as I can remember. Anyone remember Windows 95?
When that thing came out, my dad bought the family our first computer,
but JAWS was not so advanced. Laptops were bulky, and remember when the
first one was invented? I cannot remember when the first laptop was
invented, I think I was born at that time. But I do remember seeing in a
blurb online that it had a tape deck, a floppy disc drive, a printer of
all things. Imagine carrying that big old clunker around. lol But my
tech geek history goes back, about to 95 for Windows and then some. But
my real exposure to computers began with Apple and Echo. Remember?
Does anyone remember also some of the games from back then? Space
invaders? Oh God, I can barely remember anything else.
Also, I had a whole history with JAWS and work related computing written
in my blog. The URL of that blog is in the signature at the bottom.
Also, all contacts are at the bottom. So yall are welcome to contact me
with any questions.
My current tech consists of the Asus laptop Iďm renting, Comcast
accessible TV box, which has made me break the bank. Ugh. And I also use
a BrailleNote when it is not flat. Ugh. I may have to wait a month to
get that fixed unless I can pay with a Visa gift card. Also, I have a
$209 cable/internet/phone bill. But Comcast can't get a triple promo
going, so yeah I'm stuck paying big bucks for the stuff that people
think is a luxury. Well, if yo looked at my building, you would be using
tech to secure the door, so I have to in turn secure my apartment. What
we do is you walk in the outer door, type in a code given to you by the
resident and then the resident picks up his/her phone and then hits 9
and boom, you're in.
That's all the tech I use. I also have an Android phone, which qualifies
as high tech as well.
Anyway, before I write the Great American Novel, I will close with a
thank you Carlos for inviting me to this group. Yall can contact me on
or off the group. Thanks.
Beth

Hi,
HMM. I still prefer mailman lists, to find out the membership.
So for example:
example-request@ultargroups.us
You would put your membership password, something like: who example. The list will return all the members, and their email to you, assuming, the admins didn't block it. I wish this list had such an option, though, I don't think it has.
If anyone's interested, groups.io has a feedback group kind of thing. To join, email: beta+subscribe@groups.io
I did point out a few errors, Mark helped me before.
Hope this helps someone.
LOL, the best thing I pointed out was unsubcribe, instead of unsubscribe, when you left a list. Its fixed now, but it was amusing.

Although I should have clarified that this is sometimes a problem with the file system so you might want to check the disk for errors under it's properties on the "Tools" tab.
