taking the Wd My passport drive a part

Jaffar Sidek
 

Hi.  I am wanting to open up my Western Digital drive to  access inside of it.  However, it is covered entirely by two plastic coverings sealed tightly together with no screws to unscrew as a way to detach them.  Is there a way to open up the plastic covering to maybe clean the drive's magnetic head and motor? Thanks and cheers!

Hello Olusegun,

You should look at the Docusign.com website. This is a pretty good service that I have used in the past to sign some financial documents and forward them to a bank in another part of the country. Good luck in your search should this not be to your satisfaction.

Subject: [TechTalk] CREATING AN ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE?

Hello Everyone:

Ok, here I come out of my den with yet another bug, <LOL!> Does the house have any tricks for creating an electronic signature? It's getting harder for me to have to print a form on paper, sign it, scan it and E-mail back to whomever. I believe if I can insert an electronic signature, this will save me a ton of time.

I don't mind if the trick will work in Word or with a .PDF form. Much thanks for anticipated help with this one.

Sincerely,

Check to be sure the Wireless (Wi-Fi) has not been turned off either on your computer or your router. Many routers have a small button on the back of them that will turn the Wi-Fi on or off. As for the computer, you should be able to see Wi-Fi in your network settings and it will be checked if on or not checked if off.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by the AP, but I have never encountered this issue in 7. Usually, as you said, I can simply hit connect if I'm switching from one two the other, and it connects automatically. If I don't switch, it's still connected when I turn on the machine. This is confusing.

When I tried to change my password, they do send me an email with a 6 digit code that I have to enter on the FB screen.  But, then they tell me there was an issue with the account and I need confirmation either my DOB or asking 3 people from the friends list  on that account.  I have to call them or talk to them in person, have them go to a fb website and get a confirmation code.

Regardless, it's good to have a file with your usernames and passwords

The AP or Access Point is what you are connecting to when you connect to the wifi on your router. When you initiate a scan from the card on the computer to search for wireless access points around you, it's these APs that are shown in a list from which you can select one to connect to.

This is an example of why you should keep a record of everything. Don't
assume you won't need something. I don't use my real birthday either to
protect myself against hackers. I made a record of it so I can use it if I
need to and also so I can use the same fictitious date consistently on
accounts where my birthday is none of their business. While this may not

Hi, I had forgotten my facebook password a while back and got locked out of
my account.

Facebook has given me one of 2 options to unlock my account. The first is
to enter my date of birth on record on my account. Problem is, I purposely
fudged the DOB when I made the account to throw off possible hackers in the
case that there was a data breech at Facebook. So that option is out.

the other choice is to have 3 of a list of 5 people to go to a website and
get a confirmation code for them to send to me, which I need to enter.

I have tried this but all 3 of the people said taht they get a messege on
their computers stating that they are not friends with me on that account.

I actually want to close the locked account and simply use my new account
that I have recently made.

Is there any way to contact facebook and actually have them look at the
profile photo and compare it to my state ID photo? When my wife has been
locked out of her account due to people reporting her to FB for posting
things that are "disagreeable" (in reality, the people reporting her posts
just had grudges with her), she had to make a photo or scan of her driver's
license and send it to fb to confirm her identity.

And all these problems happened before the cambridge analytica scandal
happened.


Or, are there any facebook listservs wehre I could get more detailed help
with fb issues?

Does she know about DropBox and other methods for sharing files?  While people do send attachments, she won't be able to send anything large.  E-mail providers don't allow it.  If she just wants to send small files, that's fine but if she tried to attach a large fie, that implies that she needs to know about other ways of file sharing.  Plus the fact that many people don't like getting any attachments, even legitimate ones, because of security fears.

Subject: [TechTalk] Attaching files with Office 365

 

Hi all.  I'm asking this on behalf of a friend who is using Win10 and Office 365.  I personally use Win7 and Outlook 2007 so have no idea how to help her attach files.  Will somebody please give me step by step instructions for attaching files in Office 365 in Win10 that I can send to her.  Your help would be appreciated.  Walter.

Hi all,

Fears about files containing trojans or malware are legitimate. That's why I always tell students to identify your files by saying who you are and what the file is. The three minutes you spend writing a note will save untold hours of frustration and possibly your or somebody else's computer.

It doesn't take much two or three sentences will suffice. Here is an example.

Hi folks, this these are the pictures we took last Saturday at Rhonda's wedding. I love the one of Aunt Hazel doing the polka at ninety-two. She's something else!

Obviously if you were at the ficticious Rhonda's wedding, you would know what the pictures were and who sent them. There would be no doubt at all.

Ann P.

Does she know about DropBox and other methods for sharing files?  While people do send attachments, she won't be able to send anything large.  E-mail providers don't allow it.  If she just wants to send small files, that's fine but if she tried to attach a large fie, that implies that she needs to know about other ways of file sharing.  Plus the fact that many people don't like getting any attachments, even legitimate ones, because of security fears.

Hi.  That’s the method I use with outlook 2007.  I gave her those instructions and she tried it but it didn’t work for her.  I think she might have used a too large file and I suggested she use a smaller file but I’ve not heard from her since I made that suggestion so far.  I will though let her know that method is the correct one for Office 365.  Thank you.  Walter.

This way has worked with Outlook for all versions so I honestly believe that Microsoft wouldn’t pull it from Outlook in 365, try it and see for yourself.

 

Outlook Sending Attachments:

1. Just copy whatever file or files to your clipboard that you are interested in sending as attachments.

2. With focus in the body of the new email or reply that you are interested in sending/sharing, simply paste these files or single file and these will now be attached as attachments for you to send/share (simply just Shift+Tab to check and verify).

You have to press alt+N to bring up the insert menu.

Then press down arrow, or tab and you will hear attach file.

The item in the clip board should be the location and filename, not the file itself.

I do this frequently for my board members.
