Dear Holly, Howard & List:

The block this caller feature of my IPhone will AutoRoute the blocked caller to Voice Mail. Telephone Solicitors, Bill Collectors Etc. seldom leave a message, however the Consultant Office or person finding a lost dog will leave a message. Scotland Yard or Police Plaza in the Five-Boroughs will also leave a message.

Hi Howard:

 

That sounds fine, but what if you, say get a referral to a specialist and the office calls you to set up an appointment.  If you do not have the number on your list, they will not put the call through.  Alternatively, say if someone tries to call you to let you know they found your lost dog.  If the number is not on the list, the call will not come through.

 

Of course, these are just examples, but I would think there might be some pitfalls to this.

 

I have not been following the complete thread, so maybe I have something wrong.

Hi All,

 

A friend is running Windows 7 Home 32 bit, Jaws 13, Openbook 9 and an Epson Perfection V39 flatbed scanner.  When he gives the command to scan a document the scanner starts, but it won't stop and keeps making a ding sound every few seconds while scanning!  You have to press the spacebar to interrupt / stop the scan or it'll never stop.  Also, it never acquires any text for Openbook to read.  I don't have much experience with diagnosing scanners especially through a tandem session, so I don't have a clue as to why this behavior is happening.  If anyone knows why this is happening, would you please enlighten me?  All help will be greatly appreciated and graciously accepted.  Thank y'all very much.

Hi Pam, you need a smart phone to set up a google mini. I’m not sure about the echo I have never looked into them. Once the Mini is setup you can do most things without the phone but you do need it in the beginning to set it all up. Of course if you want to make changes or add other services to your Mini then again you will need that smart phone.

Hi





We have 2 google minis also. I am not sure how you would get them to



talk to one another, but that sounds rather good. I have mixed



feelings on the google ane alexas. Google seems to have lots more



information I think. I am not sure about its game choices, but Alexa



sure has a lot to offer in that.





One question I have about the google is when you tell it you like this



song or that song, what exactly does it do with it? Does it remember it



to play other simular songs or does it put it into a playlist that you



can just play later? Can you just say, "Google, play the songs I like?"





Also, I keep setting my google mini I thought to google music, but it



keeps telling me I need to subscirbe to google music to play this or



that. What do I need to do to have that stop? Thanks.

Re: Facebook question

 

Hi,
You can choose who will see (or not see) your post, by going to the privacy, just below the edit field where you write your post.
For what you are intending, you'll need of a privacy level called "friends, except...", which will do just it.
When you select this privacy level, you'll need to enter the name(s) that you want to be on your "blacklist". They then will still be your friends but won't see what you're posting.

If you need more help with it, please ask :)

Re: Missing UnZip Utility

Gene
 

Isn't there a 7zip submenu in the context menu?  Also, I don't know why you lost the Windows method.  The player isn't, as far as I know, supposed to remove it.  Maybe there is a choice you can make during installation to cause this not to happen.  It shouldn't happen by default, but it did in your case.  You may not want or need to get the Windows system back.  Open the context menu when you are on the filename and look for the 7zip submenu.
 
But this is an excellent illustration of why you should have System Restore working unless you use another reversion program or back up using images.
 
I don't know what you do but one important reason Microsoft made system restore available is to undo problems like this related to installing and uninstalling a program.

Hello,


I just installed VLC Media Player on a 64 Bit Win 7 System.


After doing so, I have lost my ability to unzip Books from NLS.


Normally I open the Downloads folder, and Arrow down to the newly
downloaded book.  I then Press Shit-F10.  I once could find a choice in
this Menu that would allow me to Extract files from any Zip file.


This Extract choice is now missing.


I figured I would just download the Seven Zip program, and so installed
it.  But, after the install of Seven Zip, there is no Choice in the
Shift-F10 Menu.


And after looking under all Menus, there is no utility to unzip anything.


Anyone know what is going on?

Re: Openbook 9 and a Epson Scanner

It's probably Openbook that is making the sound, but not being able to hear the sound, I don't know that.  Openbook makes a repeated sound by default when scanning.
 
I'm not sure what the problem is but is version 9 of Openbook being used?  I'd have to look in the settings to find how to select the scanner being used.  See if there are multiple choices for the scanner, if your friend knows how to check and try others.  Sometimes there are choices such as unknown twain with and then the name of the scanner.  There may be one or two others for the same scanner.
 
If that doesn't help, I don't think I have other suggestions.  If you need to know how to find the selections, ask here.

Re: Saving An Email With Outlook 2010 Question Please.

Gene
 

I very much doubt it.  Here are suggestions.
 
You should be able to reply to the saved message, add text, then save it as a draft.  Or you can send it to yourself, which may be necessary if you want to save it as you do a received message.
 
Of course, if you save it as a text message, you can use Notepad to add or delete whatever you want but I have never heard of an e-mail message, in an e-mail format as being anything other than read only. 
 
You can open the current message in the e-mail program, then save it as a text message and alter the text version.

Re: Clean emails How do I get rid of circumflux xrs

 

Hi.
Here's something you can try doing to stop it from happening
Go to Tools > Options
From there you should find something that on my side, using Thunderbird in Portuguese, is called "aparências", wich should be translated as "appearance" or something like that.
If you find this option, tab until "advanced" and press spacebar.
Tab until the combobox about text codification, then both on the first and on the second one, choose "UTF-8".
Tab and check the option to use the default text codification when possible.
After you have done all of this, OK it to exit this dialog and see itf it changes anything.

P.S.: I'm sure certain terms I used here won't match with the English ones, but I don't know how to change the Thunderbird's language so I can't be of more help. Sorry :(
