Re: Question About Deleting Messages In Thunderbird

Gene
 

You may get an answer within the program.  If you don't, if the program saves its settings in the registry, running a restore point would likely reverse the change, although if the program is designed as it should be, there should be a way in the program.  But its something to keep in mind as a possible solution.

Subject: [TechTalk] Question About Deleting Messages In Thunderbird

Hi Group,


So I thought I knew everything about Thunderbird. Well, here's something
I don't know and can't easily find under any settings.


 From the time I started using Thunderbird in Windows 7 years ago, when
I have grouped messages by conversation and when I want to delete them,
I get a prompt saying: 'messages in this thread will be deleted' you are
presented with a delete button, a cancel button and a checkbox that
says: 'don't show me this message again.'  I always left the checkbox
unchecked as a safety factor against mass deletion of messages. 
Somehow, today, I must have checked that box.  I can't see just how to
enable that message again.


If anyone can give steps as to how to enable that message again, I would
greatly appreciate the information.

Re: Alexa on the Fire tablet?

David Goldfield <david.goldfield@...>
 

Hi, Vicky.

My limited experience with using Alexa on the Fire tablet is that you can actually perform very few functions which are specific to the tablet. You can specify which apps you want to open, such as "open settings" but you can't be specific about what type of settings you want to open. As an example, I can't say "open settings, device options" or "open device options settings" as you can on an iPhone. You can say "open home screen" to go back to your main home screen. If you say "open" followed by an app which is not on your system it will actually try to search the Amazon app store for what you asked for and will attempt to take you to a page containing relevant results. As an example, if you say "open crossword" it will show you a page from the app store with information about an app called Crossword. When I said "battery status" it told me that it wasn't able to give me information about that. There may be other tablet-specific functions that others have found but these are the ones I've attempted.

Facebook groups and new members

 

Hi folks,
Anyone having troubles adding new members to facebook groups?
About a time ago, I'm experiencing an annoying situation.
I'm using m.facebook and every time I'm going to try to add some new member in any group I'm administrating or moderating, I just can't do it.
When I open the notification saying that X profile wants to join my group, the page shows me what I suppose to be a PHP code or stuff like that.
So, is anyone having this issue too?


Re: Saving photos from facebook while on a computer?

 

Hi Shirley,
If you are using m.facebook, try to do it:
Open the page with the photo
Find and click the "view full-size button"
Then, after the foto is opened, CTRL+S to save it.
Just give it a name including the path folder and then it's done.

Hulu is On Sale For $0.99 a Month For Black Friday

Cristóbal
 

I generally don’t’ post stuff like this, but this Hulu deal is actually pretty crazy.

I know right now, the service is lacking in regards to accessibility, but Hulu did enter into an agreement where they would begin to offer ore accessible content and improve upon their app and site accessibility. Whenever that is sometime next year, one could at least be subscribed.

Also, as with Netflix, you can have a main account and have a few subprofiles. My wife renewed her Hulu sub since she dropped it a couple of years ago and went ahead and created one for me this time. I forwarded this same deal to my sister who also renewed her sub and created account for each of my parents so everyone can have their own recommendations and whatnot.

Just keep in mind, if you go for the family/ multiple user option, it’s one log in and you have to select who’s watching after that. So … having a unique PW for this account is probably a really good idea if you’re not already making a practice of it. You don’t even have to be the main account holder since you can piggyback on someone else’s account if they jump on this deal.

I'm looking for a new laptop and I recently searched on amazon.com.  I
found one that looked good but in reading the customer comments there
was one person who said they had bought a laptop from amazon.com, a
Dell, and later on when they needed some work done or something Dell
told them that their warranty had run out because it had started the day
that amazon purchased the machine, 80 something days before the person
bought the computer from amazon.  Does anybody know if that was just an
isolated incident or if it happens more often?  I don't want to buy a
machine without a full warranty.


Thanks.

It sounds like nonsense to me.  Some trolls write all sorts of things.  This one makes no legal sense and can almost certainly be ignored, which is what I would do.

Yes; I go back to the dos days, too. The best braille device I like is the braille lite. It's so simple, and it has nothing to do with windows, which only complicates things. I have had times, using the braille sense, where I have forgotten to save what I was working on, acting like I was using a braille lite; only to have to try to do it all over again. Yes, I know you save in dos, too; but the braille lite did it for you. Pam.Pam.

Joe, you and I go back to dos days. How I remember with great
fondness hearing you and the other old Apple folks chime in on the
best ways to do things.
Thanks for the info on the Orbit. I tend to use my units as
stand-alone, and don't pair them with anything useful except the
reading-fingers. (Smiles.) I have approximately 7000 books from
bookshare. Does the Orbit allow for?
folders of books, let's say, by subject?
So all my history textbooks could be in a folder. when the folder is
opened, the books would show up in alphabetical order?
So just how does that SD card operate? What sorts of limits are
there to it?
Thanks so much.

Hi, Penny,
You have the right slant on the Orbit reader. When set to its Stand
Alone operation, the device is a simple word processor. It reads .txt, .brl and .brf documents.
In its Remote Mode, it can be connected to devices either via a USB
cable or Bluetooth. Information on the connected device is shown on
the Orbit's display.
I only use the Orbit reader in Stand Alone.
The Braille is excellent. I thought I'd have difficulty with no
speech and a 20-cell display, but I have had no problems at all.
I use the device to keep wear and tear to a minimum on my U2. HIMS
charges too much for most repairs.
To sum up, I really enjoy my Orbit reader. Once you understand how
to work with its Editor, I think You'll love it as well.

I've changed the subject line a bit.
What I like about the Orbit so far is the price. I do not own one,
but I own very expensive HIMS notetaking devices. I love them, but
if they go down, I'm sunk. Last year I would love to have gotten a
few cells replaced on my 32-cell u2 device. Nope; they couldn't do
it; they wanted
2100 dollars to replace the entire braille display.
That's four orbits, in case you're keeping score.
I don't own an orbit yet. I'm considering it. It would be nice, first,
to just be able to hold an orbit and work with it for 5 or 15 minutes.
My understanding is that it will open whatever file you have and
that is what you see. if you have a text file, it does not
translate it into braille, as we are so used to with our HIMS or braille-note type devices.
There is no speech either, isn't that right? And there's no flash
memory, to store things. it's all done on an SD card, right?
Someone with an Orbit or with knowledge of it, perhaps you will
chime in and help me a little.
If my inquiry is beyond the scope of what is desired on the list,
I'll gladly move it into a private discussion.
