Hi Troy,

Try the OontZ Angle Bluetooth speaker:

https://www.amazon.com/OontZ-Angle-Portable-Bluetooth-Speaker/dp/B010OYASRG/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1522190570&sr=1-3&keywords=OOntz+Angle+3+bluetooth+speaker

These are great speakers that sound great and are moderately priced. I have one that I keep connected to my iPhone and PlexTalk Pocket, and my daughter has one in her Mercedes convertible that really sounds great when she takes me cruising around town.

Subject: [TechTalk] recommendations for a bluetooth speaker please

Hi all,

I need recommendations for a good bluetooth speaker that sounds good for both voice and music please.

I want to pair it with my Amazon echo so I can have the echo play music inside and I can take the speaker outside to listen, and I also want to pair it with my phone to use with the Spectrum app to listen to tv programs.

Thanks.

Troy

Puzzled about CDEX ripping speed

Walter Ramage
 

Hi all.  I have for many years used CDEX for ripping my CDs.  I for a few years used Express Rip but lately have resorted to CDEX.  I’ve been using version 1.51 on two of my PCs but this morning on one of the PCs I had a problem .  To cut a long story short I uninstalled the programme and re-installed it a couple of times.  I then uninstalled it and installed  newer versions but still had real trouble to the extent I just couldn’t even launch it.  I had though earlier in the morning ripped around 5 CDs before the trouble.

 

I called my computer guy and arranged for him to come out on Thursday and I then shut down the computer until then.  However I forgot to remove the discs I had ripped from that computer and put them on my back up drives and thus I turned on the PC to do that and while on I tried CDEX one last time without any real hope of it working; but it did!.  The version I now have installed is 1.83 but the reason I’m puzzled is the computer is now ripping  discs at incredible speed.  It is ripping a 16 track CD in 1 minute 52 seconds.  This concerned me because I imagined it wasn’t ripping the discs properly but after ripping there are no errors indicated and all the file properties are fine.  I even ripped one of the discs on my other PC and compared both ripped files and there are no problems that I can detect.  My question is, and I guess I have two questions but the first one is; is it normal for CDEX to rip a disc with such speed and has this been your experience?  My second question is does anybody know if CDEX rips the WAV file in 8 or 16 bit?  My other PC is still running version 1.51 without trouble, so far.  Walter.

Hi,

I recently received a VIP 3000 thermostat since I just had central air installed.

 

I learned that you can program it to have different temps during different times of the day, so I set it to be at a certain temp at 10 pm, but when I push the report button the temp never swiched to the temp I had it configured to change too. Thoughts?

Re: New Laptop Specifications

Aman Singer
 

Hi Eleni,

You may already be using a firewall. If your machine is behind a home router, that router generally, and particularly with XP, will serve as an inbound firewall. If you are not behind a router, or want an outbound firewall, firewalls come as both hardware and software. Windows XP Sp2 has a firewall but it is not of the best. It is, however, far better than an unfiltered connection to the internet. Most home firewalls are not expensive at all, you might want to have a look at firewalls which run on the Raspberry Pi or on cheap routers which generally cost as much as the hardware.

There are a ton of infected Windows XP machines out there, but that's
because they are run by people who don't understand the security
situation and don't take steps to protect themselves. If a person
wants to use XP, that's his affair, the risks are there, but some
risks are there with every operating system. They are just different
