Re: Windows Is Gone

Loy <loyrg2845@...>
 

There is no Windows 2010. the latest version of Windows 10 is 2004.> Are you
talking about Windows 2010? or windows 10?


If windows 2010 then there is a different issue.

Also, does jaws come up saying this? or did someone read it to you?


Thanks.

Where can I find Windows 2010 and would I need to install it from some

This whole thing is something I never expected to run into especially

Hi All

 

Are there any recommendations for an accessible audio book player for android. In particular one that remembers your playback position.

 

Thanks

I said I'm suspicious. I don't have any definite statement but whether it is the hard drive or not, I'm suspicious that something is causing corruption or loss of data. Having a hard drive fail doesn't have to mean the entire hard drive fails. Why can't enough of the drive fail to cause corruption or loss of data?

I don't know all the malfunctions that can cause such corruption or loss of data. It could be something else, but I'm suspicious that it is a hardware problem.

If you can get narator you should be able to recover. Also, i disagree
with Jene that it's a hard drive failure, If the drive was bad it
wouldn't have booted to the point narator works.

Exactly what i would recommend doing from this point i'm not sure as i
don't know exactly what the error message is.


Thanks.

Hi all,

What has RTFM to do with this audible cartoon?

RTFM is typically used by techies who really don't want to help newbies to learn. In order to RTFM, one must be able to understand what one reads. Lack of understanding is why human trainers who are compassionate and patient are needed.

Re: Windows Is Gone

Gerald Levy
 

I agree with Gene.  It sounds to me like the hard drive could be defective, and so reinstalling Windows10  may not fix the problem.  Who is this Kevin guy?  Does he have a web site that describes the computers he sells?  Or is he just someone who tinkers with computers as a hobby and sells them to blind consumers?  What kind of warranty does he offer, and are its terms posted anywhere online?  Or do you just have to accept the terms of the warranty on faith?  No matter how "reliable" Kevin may seem, if he doesn't offer some kind of definitive warranty, preferably of at least one year, then I would be wary about doing business with him. By contrast, Computers for the Blind has a web site that describes the refurbished computers they sell and the terms of their one year warranty. I hate to keep beating a dead horse, but as always, caveat emptor.

Re: Radio automation software?

Hi:

Try Station Playlist Studio. That's the one that seems to be the most accessible.

Hi there,
Can anyone suggest some decent radio automation software? Ideally it needs to run on my server, which is running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
I've had a dabble around with Liquidsoap and EZStream, but EZStream doesn't seem very flexible and LiquidSoap seems to have bugs and discrepancies that make it difficult (if not impossible) to use effectively.
Also bearing in mind I'm not a Linux expert yet, it needs to be relatively easy to install (either that or its installation instructions need to be detailed), and easy to configure.
I'm guessing due to the flexibility required for automation that most of it will be script-based. That's fine, again, as long as the documentation is detailed (LiquidSoap, for instance, has a lot of autogenerated, incomplete, and/or inaccurate documentation which makes its language a pain in the rear to try to get to grips with).
Cheers.
Damien.

Re: Windows Is Gone

I hope it works but it sounds suspiciously to me like a hard drive failure.

I don't know anything about Kevin, but it appears he has a good reputation.

Do you save a lot of money and get a better computer from him than you would through someplace like Computers For the Blind? How does he support what he sells?

Ordinarily, I would never buy a computer from a private person for reasons I gave earlier. but if Kevin is reputable and supports what he sells adequately, that would be something people may want to know about as a possibility.

The interesting thing about your story is that the person corrected
something.  If he was right, you made an error that he corrected.  Whatever
he called it to be flippant, he still should have told you what he did and
what you did to cause the problem so you wouldn't do it and would know how
to correct it if you ever did it again, for some reason.

How about, * PICNIC *, problem in chair not in computer, or something
similar is another good one.

Easy Computer Fix

I received this from a CEO that I worked with a few years back. He doesn't
want to admit it but I think this is his true experience.

I was having trouble with my computer so I called Richard, the 11 year
old next door whose bedroom looks like Mission Control, and asked him
to come over.

Richard clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.

As he was walking away, I called after him, 'So, what was wrong?'

He replied, 'It was an ID ten T error.'

I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, 'An ID ten T
error? What's that? In case I need to fix it again.'

Richard grinned. 'Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?'

'No,' I replied.

'Write it down,' he said, 'and I think you'll figure it out.’

So I wrote down: I D 1 0 T

I used to like the little sh*t

He meant it was an IDIOT error.  PC Errors are marked by an ID as in Identification, IO put together looks like the number 10, and then you include the letter T, and that spells IDIOT.  We are supposed to make of it what we will.  Cheers!
