phone to use with cdma

Joe Giovanelli <joegio100@...>
 

Hello,

I need a recommendation for a phone, not smart, to be used on a CDMA carrier. If it has speech, great, but I can work without it if I have to.

Thanks very much for your help.

Okay, gang.  Here's what GHacks Technology News has to say about the broken Windows 10 search box issue that users on this and other lists have been reporting:

Need another reason that current web search integration is bad in Windows 10?

‎Today, ‎February ‎05, ‎2020, ‏‎6 hours ago | Martin BrinkmannGo to full article

Reports are coming in that search is not working properly on many Windows 10 devices; the issue is different from the recent File Explorer search issue that users experienced and are still experiencing to a degree.

Basically, what is happening currently is that the search interface is entirely black and that searches don't work at all on affected systems. The problem, it appears, is not caused by users or administrators, but by Microsoft.

Microsoft made the decision to interweave Cortana, the digital assistant, and search when it released the operating system. While Cortana and Search have been untangled, Microsoft decided to integrate and improve web search functionality in recent versions.

Search in Windows 10 returns offline and online content by default. Local search works pretty much like it did back in Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, online search displays suggestions for the most part.

Microsoft may change search functionality remotely on Windows 10 machines, e.g. to adjust settings or other parameters without having to release a Windows update that does that. That's useful in theory, but not so much if remote issues cause search to stop working at all.

One would think that local search would continue to work if Windows 10 could not connect to remote servers or if some other form of remote connection does not work as expected; this is apparently not the case.

Affected users may want to use third-party search applications such as Everything or one of these desktop search programs to restore search functionality.

Windows Latest suggests that disabling Web Search on affected Windows 10 systems and rebooting the system restores search functionality as well on affected devices.

windows
          10 web search

Here is how you do that:

  1. Use Windows-R to display the run box.
  2. Type regedit.exe and hit the Enter-key to start the Registry Editor.
  3. Confirm the UAC prompt.
  4. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search
  5. Locate BingSearchEnabled.
    1. If the value does not exist, right-click on Search in the tree hierarchy of the left sidebar and select New > Dword (32-bit) Value. Name it BingSearchEnabled.
  6. Change the data value of BingSearchEnabled to 0.
  7. Locate CortanaConsent.
  8. Double-click on the value and set it to 0.
  9. Restart the PC.

The change worked on one test PC that was affected by the issue.

The issue is not the first search issue of Windows 10. Microsoft broke search in 2017 in the operating system and Windows 10 version 1903 had several search bugs as well.

Hi all. This is a Microsoft issue, and is related to the Bing search
engine. I have heard that they are working on a resolution to this
issue, and it may be sent out as a patch update. Stay tuned, and sorry
for the inconvenience. It's driving me crazy. I never realized how
much I rely on it.

RECOMMENDATIONS for annimated greeting card website, anyone?

Sharon Hooley
 

Hi,

My nephew donated a kidney to his dad, my brother yesterday. So I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a clean, accessible site where I can get funny animated greeting cards, including a get-well category? I've thought of Blindfold Greeting Cards, but I'd like to be able to share the kinds that are visually appealing.

Thanks, for any input,

Re: baseball's game day audio

Karim Lakhani
 

Hi,
I tried the at bat app. in my opinion it's easier then the web version.
from what I can tell, one year audio will be 27.00, so for Canadians it will depend on the conversion how much it will be.
Looking forward to it, it helps getting rid of the winter blues.
have a nice day.

hi troy:

I had to do this just a few weeks ago.

you must go into your account and you must go to the add new credit card
link and treat it as if you are adding a new credit card.

my card's expiration date had changed, so, as in the past, I thought you
could just change the expiration date.

now, that is no longer possible.

then, after you do this, you can delete your old credit card info.

it will know for sure this march if I can still get gameday audio for the
coming season, since my account is set up for automatic renewal.

Re: Drop box.

Gene
 

That's an interesting question and I'm not sure what you should do.  the Dropbox program monitors the folder in a certain place on a certain drive.  If you open the program and it doesn't see a folder where it looks, I don't know if it will create one and download all the files to it, or if it will delete the folders and files you currently have in the online storage. 
 
We'll see what others say.  I may write more later, depending on what others say.

    I have been updating my 2011 computer; i now have a 500GB SSD,
solid state drive; and a 4 TB drive inside the computer.

My drop box landed on the SSD.  that is fine.  But I tried to put it
onto the 4TB drive.

So I have an instance of it on the solid state drive, and also on the
4tb drive.

The 4tb drive doesn't seem to be working; that is, the drop box program
does not seem to be doing anything on the 4tb drive.

May i safely get rid of that, and just continue to use the one on the
solid state drive?

Remember, I'm not a whizz, i'm just an old computer user.

Hi George,

I purchased game day audio originally through the computer though, can I still update the info through the at bat app and if so how? I went into the FAQ under game day audio and all I've found so far is where it talks about is if the purchase was through the app.

Re: Drop box.

Steve Matzura
 

Get it off the solid state drive. If your Dropbox is big, or could potentially become big, or is active, you're wasting space and writes for no reason by keeping it on the SSD. The Dropbox application has an automatic facility to move its storage to wherever you want it to be. Use that function to move your Dropbox folder to your large-capacity drive. It's totally transparent to the user and always works. To do it:


1. Open the Dropbox application located in the system tray, or if you're on a Mac, from the Dropbox Extras menu.

2. Choose "Access and manage your Dropbox settings" from the menu.

3. Move to the "Sync" tab.

4. Activate the "Move..." button and follow the prompts.

Recently bought my $500 braille me display

Josh Kennedy
 

Hi,
I recently bought my braille me display for the sale price of $499 from www.atguys.com ... I got it just in time because the price went up to $531 plus $9 shipping and I got mine for $499 plus $9 shipping. So I will write the list and let you know how I like it when it arrives this afternoon in the mail. I got one back in early 2018 two years ago and returned it shortly after I got it because the pins rattled around inside and it had many braille dot issues so I got my money back for that one back in early 2018. I can't wait to play with this new improved one and I have some ideas as to how to maybe get the braille me to work with jaws so I will try that as well. Even though it says the braille me does not work with jaws? I may be able to prove them wrong and make it work so we'll see what happens with that.

Thank you for responding.  I wasn't sure if this was even possible.  I am thinking that I may have someone who is sighted take a picture of the photo in my messages on the computer from my phone like a screen shot and then maybe I could post it then.  If not, oh well!  Take care.
