I knew Toth would pull this at some point. Until he updates, he's basically choked himself off from any new purchasers. Who's going to want to buy his program the way it is if it cannot be fully used?

Hi,

I hadn't used Chicken Nugget in a while. When I recently tried to
relaunch it, I click on the Add Existing Twitter account button, but
though it says it's connecting, the application doesn't actually take
me anywhere. It just sits there. I uninstalled, reinstalled, to no

Re: Whiping an Old External Drive Question Please.

I really wish somebody somewhere could and would find Daren of "Daren's Boot and Nuke," a.k.a. DBAN, and have it made accessible in some way, shape, or form. It's the most popular disk-buster on the planet. So why shouldn't we screenreader users have access to it, too? There's got to be a way to get it done.

Hi Everyone,
Can someone please tell me how to be for sure I've wiped my old external drive completely clean before I take it to Best Buy for recycle?
I did delete what I had on the drive, but just not for sure if that is good enough.
I don't remember what kind of drive it is because I've had it over ten years.

Thank you in advance.

Re: Chicken Nugget Twitter Client

Regarding the database error, I've found it much more helpful to just not use that function unfortunately. The TWBlue developer never really gave that feature much attention, which is why it's not enabled by default, and it tends to cause heavy RAM usage, at least on my machine.

Disk Cleanup is Going Away in Windows 10 and We Miss It Already.

Mike B. <mike9902@...>
 


 
Disk Cleanup is Going Away in Windows 10 and We Miss It Already
Chris Hoffman
@chrisbhoffman
 September 14th, 2018
main region
article
Microsoft
quietly announced
 that Disk Cleanup is now deprecated, news that was buried at the bottom of a blog post about Windows 10’s Storage Sense. Disk Cleanup isn’t going away
immediately but is on its way out the door.
 
Twenty Years of Disk Cleanup
 
Disk Cleanup deserves a better send-off than a tiny note at the end of a Microsoft blog post. We’ve been using Disk Cleanup for over 20 years since it
debuted in Windows 98.
 
Whatever version of Windows you’re using, Disk Cleanup has always worked the same way. Right-click a drive, select “Properties,” and then click the “Disk
Cleanup” button to launch it. It still works the same way on Windows 10 today. You can also just launch it from the Start menu or run the cleanmgr.exe
program.
 
Disk Cleanup has gotten more and more useful over time. Whether it was removing a few hundred MB of temporary files on Windows XP or
removing more than 10 GB of leftover files
 after installing a big update to Windows 10, it always worked well to free up the disk space we needed.
 
On a complicated operating system that kept adding new features over time, Disk Cleanup was always the one-stop location for freeing up disk space. We’ve
been teaching people to
use Disk Cleanup
 for years. It’s been indispensable.
 
Geeks Turned to CCleaner, But Disk Cleanup Was Always Reliable
 
Okay, okay, let’s be honest: Disk Cleanup fell out of favor. We geeks moved on to more comprehensive tools like
CCleaner
 that also erased other types of temporary files, including
gigabytes of NVIDIA driver installer files
 and web browsing histories from Chrome and Firefox.
 
CCleaner might have been packed with features, but it eventually ended up packed with additional software and
features that collected data about your PC
 after Piriform, CCleaner’s developer, was sold to Avast. It even had a
malware scare after its servers were hacked.
 
Disk Cleanup was the steady tool we could always come back to. It was always there and did a solid job without the drama. Today, Disk Cleanup still does
almost everything we need to do, and we prefer using it rather than riding the CCleaner roller coaster.
 
“Deprecated” Doesn’t Mean Dead—Not Yet, At Least
 
Disk Cleanup isn’t gone just yet. Microsoft says it will keep the utility around for compatibility reasons. In other words, Windows users are so accustomed
to this tool that Microsoft can’t get rid of it overnight.
 
This utility joins a long line of other beloved Windows features that Microsoft is slowly getting rid of. For example,
Microsoft Paint is now also deprecated,
and it will be moved out of Windows 10 proper to the Store soon enough.
HomeGroups
 are already gone.
System Image Backups
 are deprecated and may be removed soon.
 
When Microsoft says Disk Cleanup is “
deprecated
” starting with the
October 2018 update,
that means it’s been replaced by a new tool. It may or may not be available in future version of Windows 10, and Microsoft recommends you don’t rely on
it. In a best-case scenario, Disk Cleanup may have a few years left—but we bet it’ll be gone sooner than that.
 
Disk Cleanup Lives on in Spirit
 
While Disk Cleanup is saying its goodbyes, it still lives on in spirit. The new
“Free Up Space” tool in Windows 10
 is basically a modern, faster Disk Cleanup. It does everything Disk Cleanup does—and more.
 
To find this tool, head to Settings > System > Storage > Free Up Space Now. It will automatically scan your system for everything Disk Cleanup looked for.
 
Windows 10’s new utility is a more than capable replacement. Really, there’s no loss in functionality. We shouldn’t be concerned. But a part of Windows
we’ve known and relied on for 20 years is going away, and we’re going to miss it.

JAWS shortcuts for Winamp in regards to time are:

 

When the Winamp window has focus use the keystroke Insert+H (you can also use Insert+W) and this will give you a list of various JAWS shortcuts for Winamp such as below.

 

To speak the length of the current track, press Control+JAWSKey+T.

To speak the elapsed time, press Alt+Shift+T.

To speak the time remaining, press Control+Shift+T.

Well, there a whole lot more hot keys for one thing. For example, when you’re playing a file locally, alt-shift-u tells you how long a track is, alt-shift-i tells you how much time has elapsed, and alt-shift-o tells you how much time is remaining. None of those are available in JAWS, at least they aren’t working here.

Another thing, when you up or down arrow, Window Eyes tells you what percentage your volume is at, whereas JAWS is silent.

When playing a folder with more than one file in it, when you use b or z to go forward or backward through the tracks, Winamp with the Window Eyes scripts will tell you the track name if you want, whereas JAWS is silent.

Those are just a few examples. There are many more.

Hey Guys,

Well, I’ve finally bitten the bullet and installed JAWS 18. I’ve been a Window Eyes loyalist since 2007, and I’ve hung onto it as long as I could.

One thing I’ve noticed right away with this JAWS 18 is that my computer seems to run faster. I’m sure that can’t be the case, but with Window Eyes, when I would click on a folder, for example, it takes longer to say anything than JAWS does. JAWS starts speaking almost before I hit the key. Same with arrowing around through documents and web pages. Very snappy!

It makes my computer feel significantly faster.

Also, by the way, I went up to the BARD site today with JAWS 18 and Firefox 60.2 ESR 32-bit, the same version that I could not read any links there with Window Eyes the other day, which I posted about here, and it’s working again. Also, the pages seem to load faster. But once again, that may be due to JAWS snappier performance.

There are just a few things I need to learn, or relearn, (I haven’t used JAWS since 2007), but I’m pretty happy with it so far.

I wish JAWS had the scripts for Winamp that Window Eyes has. Those are fantastic and make the app more accessible than with JAWS. But I’m not getting rid of my Window Eyes, so I’ll have it around if I really want it.

What would be really cool is if I could just make JAWS go silent and let Window Eyes take over when I switch to Winamp, and then have Window Eyes go silent and JAWS take over again whenever I switch to other apps; kind of like what happens with Kurzweil 1000, which when it is in focus, other screen readers go silent, and then when focus is changed to another app, the screen reader comes back up again.

Re: Chicken Nugget Twitter Client

Gene
 

If you make a specific promise in your promotional writings to maintain something then don't, that's probably a violation of a contract if people have paid for a product.  Maybe the person would do what he says he'll do if the real possibility of legal action is presented.  Since this is a repeated pattern, maybe a situation should be created where he realizes that he either makes specific promises when selling a product, which will be kept unless not possible for some truly valid reason, not just I don't feel like it, or he should not make any specific representations about future service that will be provided when a product is sold for money or is provided in exchange for a donation.  I'm not a lawyer but I would think, based on my dilettante reading of contract law just because I'm interested, that this is a contract, as I said.  When you pay money for a bus ride, that is a contract between you and the bus company.  There are times when an advertisement is considered a contract.  
 
Making a specific statement in promoting an item for sale about what will be done in the future regarding support of that product and not doing so is, I would consider, a material breach and fraud in the inducement.  
 
Now, I'll let the lawyers comment.

external hard drive enclosures

Hi, looking to buy an external hard drive enclosure for an external hard drive I have that when I turn the power on it, the motor starts up but the hard drive does not show up after about a minute on my computer's directories.
 
Think the ribbon cable (IDE connector) might be blown.
 
Anyway, is there a standard power connection for external drives, or should I be looking for a specific type.
 
I think the  current external hard drive has a 4 pin power connector on it.
 
Thanks

I don't know him on a personal level, so have no opinion concerning his off work personality, so do not consider this a personal flame, but strongly disagree with his business practices. Trust that is easily earned can be just as easily broken, with each repeated offense making the end user more and more wary of future dealings.

Any developer worth anything would put through the required changes, as people have invested in his product and it would be the right thing to do.

Not really surprised though, even when approaching him for support before Twitter implemented the current API shake up, it would take him days to reply to email query,  if he even bothered.

When he did write back, it was always with a certain arrogance.

Subject: [TechTalk] Chicken Nugget Twitter Client

Hi,

I hadn't used Chicken Nugget in a while. When I recently tried to
relaunch it, I click on the Add Existing Twitter account button, but
though it says it's connecting, the application doesn't actually take
me anywhere. It just sits there. I uninstalled, reinstalled, to no
avail. Am I missing something? Thanks for any help.

Joe

Yes, that's right. If you press shift-tab from your list of messages in the inbox and you don't land on the list of folders try going into the View menu, choose Layout and then make sure Folder pane is checked. If it says "folder pane, not checked" press enter. This exits the menu and will take you back to your inbox. From there, pressing shift-tab should take you to your list of email folders.

I haven't looked into them but someone discussed CCleaner and I commented on that in later messages.

You can run utilities that wipe all unused areas of a drive and you can use them while Windows is running.  Others will, I hope, give you more specific information.  I haven't looked into the matter.

Hi Everyone,
Can someone please tell me how to be for sure I've wiped my old external drive completely clean before I take it to Best Buy for recycle?
I did delete what I had on the drive, but just not for sure if that is good enough.
I don't remember what kind of drive it is because I've had it over ten years.

Thank you in advance.
Janet
