Figuring out which Wy-Fi Network to hook up too?

Dave
 

Last night, had a situation where I could not figure out which Wy-Fi
network to hook up to.

Turned on my System, and was given a list of local Wy-Fi Networks, and
it was a long list too. Lots of Small business have Wy-Fi connections,
and was getting a Wy-Fi Signal from several of these businesses. Some
as far away as three or four
Blocks!

Had no idea a Wy-Fi signal could have that sort of range.

Had signals coming from several stores, and what I would guess were
several homes or apartments.

Some had names, and I could easily tell what signals belonged to who.
Such as the one for the Laundromat, and the Bar next to it etc. But
most Signals had names that didn't mean a thing, and I didn't see the
one I was looking for.

Is there a way to know which Wy-Fi Signals go with what location? Say
I am at a Coffee Shop, and I am wanting to connect to the Coffee "
Shop's Free Wy-Fi. And the Shop's Signal isn't obvious in the list of
possible Signals to hook up to. How do you know which one to use? And
I wasn't inside the shop, but outside it, in the parking lot.

Thanks for any advice,

Grumpy Dave


Locating Sources in TW Blue

Rich De Steno <ironrock@...>
 

I have successfully used TW Blue with NVDA as my Twitter client for years.  I have not added a source to follow in a long time. How can I locate a source within TW Blue, such as a news organization, and then "follow" them so that their tweets come to my TW Blue program as do my many other sources?  I have checked all the TW Blue documentation and cannot find this answer.

Re: DirectvNow trouble

They’ve redesigned the whole website and app. It’s not just because of the DVR. It’s a whole new design… I didn’t have much luck getting around the website very easily in the past either. But now it’s a nightmare! It worked well on the Apple TV, but now the guide section is in accessible… Everybody’s giving me the runaround on who supposed to fix it… I’m going to be looking into other options...

Just recently, DirectvNow changed the website since they added DVR. I always used the website from my PC and use JAWS 18. Now with the addition with DVR, I can’t get anything to play and if I search for a channel no search results come up at all and I’m just really lost on the website now.

 

I was wondering if anyone had suggestions to help using the website on the PC…didn’t have too much trouble before using the website before DVR was added.

Zoom?

Kay Malmquist
 

Hi all,
I am late as usual, but can anyone tell me about Zoom?  Free, paid?  Multiple platforms?  I assume I can download it on my iPhone and computer?  Will it work on XP?  I know, I know, I should get my other machine up and running.  I will, I promise.  What screen reader works the best with it?  What can you all tell me?  Please help if you can.  I have a meeting coming up and I'd like to use Zoom rather than the phone.  Thanks in advance.

Re: Google Drive running out of storage space.

Victor
 

Most of the time I use the Gmail website. The rest of the time I use the native mail app for iOS.

I suspect that it is probably Google drive that is running out of space. I have had Gmail since at least 2005 and I always just archived everything. That was never a problem up until pretty recently when I started getting those messages.

Again, I’m not sure why am having that problem because I am only seeing one final left in my Google drive because I deleted many files several weeks ago when I saw this problem the first time. I will have to look for the trash folder in Google drive and try to clean it out as well. I cleaned out my trash folder in Gmail earlier today. I will see what happens the next time I’m near a computer.

Thank you,

Victor

Lately I have been getting a message on my Gmail account informing me that I am running low on storage space. I’m getting this message when I go to the Gmail website. I think this might be referring to my Google drive but I’m not sure as I think there’s only one final left in my Google Drive right now. I got this message several months ago and I deleted many files from Google drive. I stopped getting that message for a long time when I did that.

There are many emails in my Gmail account because Gmail seems to be virtually unlimited. There are many emails that I have not bothered to delete. I know that Google Drive gives us 15 gigs of free storage. The message is telling me that I am almost at 15 gigs. I think we get much more storage in Gmail. What do you think is happening? Am I running out of storage on Gmail or Google drive? How can I solve this problem. How can I clear lots of storage in Gmail quickly without deleting a bunch of individual emails?

Re: Google Drive running out of storage space.

Robin Frost
 

Hi,
You don't say which client if any you use to manage your GMail on a daily basis. I just wanted to chime in and mention that there's a known issue with GMail and Microsoft Outlook for Windows only note this is only for Outlook on Windows where deletion of messages I.E. sending them to the trash isn't working properly. Rather it's deleting and archiving them meaning it's leaving a copy of them in the all mail folder which over time does indeed eat up space and one doesn't realize it till it's significant enough to be noticeable or generate such a message. This is specific to Outlook for Windows and Microsoft is aware of it I assure you. They hear from me almost monthly for updates on it. Sadly a fix hasn't been forth coming as of yet but if you use clients other than Outlook and it's doing this it'd be interesting to know which ones.
Take good care.
Robin

Re: Cases and keyboards for my newest iPad 9.7

Steve Matzura
 

I just got the Logitech K780, which can be used with Mac OS, iOS, Windows and Android devices. It's more than just a keyboard. It is a solid, heavy base with a slot and about an inch of hard rubber mounted on the back of the base which is made to put an iPad into, mounting it at just the right angle for visual viewing. I am using it for my 1.5" iPad Pro, so I imagine your 9.7" model would fit handily and easily. It even fits in its case, which really impressed me when I tried it. The K780 is just under sixty dollars U.S. and comes with Logitech's normal tiny USB dongle for using it on another computer that may not be equipped with a Bluetooth interface.

It is not really my place to tell you, but it is not good practice to put someone else's phone number on an email list without checking with them first. If you did check, please disregard this.
