I can't emty my recycle bin

 

I am using win ten, and it's telling me to emty my recycle bin, however when I try to do that in the traditional way, that is, enter on recycle bin and click emty, I get the message that it is unavailable.  How can I make it available, so I can emty it?

It seems to work better, if you respond to an Android message.

Re: Text messaging question

M.E.N. <magpie.mn@...>
 

Because SMS texts require a cellular capability. When using I messaging, you are using WiFi but you can not I message to an Android user.
There is a way to send text messages bia your email account.

Hi,

What is confusing me, it is possible I’m over thinking the text messaging issue..An iPhone without a SIM card is technically a very expensive iPod, until a SIM card is inserted & a phone number assigned to the iPhone. My 14 year old is using an iPhone without a SIM card, connected to a wifi network. She is able to send & receive text messages from others who have an iDevice, iPad, iPod & an iPhone. Why can’t she send & receive text messages from anyone who has an Android or Samsung device, even if she texts the people using their email address?

Donna

Hi all,

Well, yes, no sym card would equal no phone number. You explain it much better than I.

Yes, it is. Please go ahead & download it from the official microsoft
servers, & simplly run the upgrade. it would automatically take your
pre-existing installation key & assign a digital licence to your
machine. If possible, please backup your machine before you start the
installation.

Thank you,

You have to connect the apple tv box using an HDMI cable and plug it into the tv that way, and yes I can ask siri to rewind or fast forward for me.

Re: Self cleaning litter boxes

heather albright
 

Well, I used to have the litter robot. My old apartment had bad wireing and it fried the unit woe! But it will clean after the cat jumps out and empties it down in to a closed tray at the bottom. I used to take the dirty liter out once a week, I only had 1 cat. You put a bag at the bottom and just take the bag out with your trash.

 I would always make sure it was leveled inside of the pan with the litter and you could put it on quite mode or night mode so it would not go off and when you took it off, it would self clean in to the tray If I rember right, it had tones to let you know what the unit was doing! When I got it, it was way way cheaper than what they have it for now; 500 dollars! But it was worth it, all you did to clean the unit was to empty the litter and wash out with soapey water and let it drie. I did that every six months ! If you keep your pan fresh and use clumping litter, it works great! Unless your dog is super  small, he or she cant fit in the pan and it is inclosed! Cheers Heather

Hi Jan,

I wish it were that easy.  Down stairs is off limit due to the fact that we

have a recording studio with miles of cable and one cat that loves to chew

cords.  The litter boxes are all covered with the openings facing the wall

but miss munchie face just moves them so she can get in to them.  I am going

to try to stick the boxes down and hope she can not move them then.

Hey Jan,
That brings up another question. About vitamin deficiencies. I am not
altogether happy with the dog food I am currently feeding. It used to be ok
for other dogs I have had in the past but I don't think she is getting all
she should from it. We haven't even really started in to the Winter season
yet and she is already scratching from her skin being dry. Granted, it is
dry around here in the house humidity wise. Any thoughts on a good
supplement with oil? I think for now I'm not going to go with the
self-cleaning litter boxes.

Hi Kay,

This is very common with dogs. It means that they have a vitamin
deficiency. If you put a little salt in the cat's food, the dog
will not like it. I had a dog that used to pick up her deposits
and carry them into the house and drop them inside. This is what
I was told to do, and it worked. But I have observed many dogs
at the litter boxes doing such. Your dog is not uncommon. Best
of luck to you.

strange problem with Windows 7 documents menu

Vicki W
 

For some reason my Windows 7 documents menu in the view option changed and so did the layout in my documents folder. This just happened this morning.
 
I compared it to my Desktop Windows 7 and the settings are the same except that in the Laptop view menu that changed, the customize this folder disappeared and the arrange by option appeared. This is different than any other view menu anywhere else on the computer.
 
When reading my documents now, even though all of the folders and files are there, it will tell me only 22, or sometimes 21 or sometimes 20 items are showing.
 
How can I get this view menu to show the options that the others do and get the document's folders and files to read the way they did?
 
Thanks.

Re: Self cleaning litter boxes

chris judge
 

Hi Kay. After reading and responding to your message I took some time to read some reviews on amazon. I’m half tempted to give self cleaning litter boxes another go. It does appear that the recommended crystal litter is somewhat difficult to get. I tried the self cleaning litter box 15 years ago, so it’s quite possible they’ve improved it since then. I currently have three kitties and 2 litter boxes, one in the basement and one in the upstairs hallway. I’d probably get 2 self cleaning litter boxes as my furballs are use to having 2, and they do recommend more than one if you have more than one kittycat.

Kay, we bought the "littermaid" box, maybe ten or twelve years ago.  I think we paid about $120 for it.  It has some kind of photo sensor that (is supposed to) set the machine in motion about ten minutes after the cat finishes and leaves.  A motor-driven rake goes through the litter and pushes the clumps into a covered recepticle.  The automated part worked for a few months.

We now take advantage of the fact that, when the power turns on, the rake does its thing; so we power it from a timer that turns on and runs the device once-a-day.  So, clumps can build up in there; we have only two cats.

Biggest disadvantage for me is that the litter goes directly into the plastic tray--no tray liner to lift and dispose.  When it's time to clean the box, the mechanism and box are separated and the used litter is dumped and the box washed before new litter is applied.

We have two other plane old boxes into which we place a double liner of plastic trash bags.  Most cleaning times require that we remove and dispose of the inner liner, then replace it and apply litter.  Total washing of the box is not required as often as with the littermaid.

We have no hungry dogs.

Good luck
