Re: Which of these BlueTooth keyboards are better?

Joe Orozco
 

Hi James,

I use the Pluggable keyboard from AT Guys and love it. When unfolded,
the keyboard is spacious enough to allow for comfortable typing, and
the key travel is deep enough to make me feel confident in my
accuracy. You're going to need a flat service to make good use of it.
Typing on your lap will be difficult, because it will want to fold in
on itself. I've rarely discovered this is an issue though. The battery
life is phenomenal. In the two years I've owned the keyboard, I can
count on one hand the number of times I've had to juice up. Of course
that will depend on how often you use it. I hope this was helpful.

Re: comment section in youtube is not displaying

The Comments Section does show up, but sometimes you need to move up and
down the screen three or four times before your movement triggers the
Comment section to either be read, or to be displayed.



And then some Videos have the Comments turn off.

Victor Reader Trek question

Jacob
 

Hello tech talk list.

As the subject suggests, I have a question about the victor reader Trek, although I guess it applies to the Stream as well.

Besides the diagnostics menu, the profile reset and pressing the info key 3 times quickly, are there any other undocumented/hidden keystrokes or commands that have been discovered

Thank you

Jacob

Re: a pin drive / USB stick question..?

Thomas N. Chan
 

You can do a chkdsk on it.
Type cmd on your run and then type
chkdsk e: /f
E: will be your drive letter and f switch will fix if there's any file issue, structure issue etc.
/r will repair or move  if there's any cluster issue

It's fairly cheap nowadays for usb thumb drive, but I will not put that as a storage if you read and write often on them.

Re: comment section in youtube is not displaying

Quentin Christensen
 

YouTube displays the comments under the recommended videos, and it starts with the spot for you to add a public comment. 

Although there is something which acts like an edit field to "add a public comment", it's done in such a way that it isn't actually a traditional edit field, so you can't find it by navigating by edit field or even form field.  The best way I've found to get to it is:

1. Press NVDA+control+f to open NVDA's find function.
2. Type the word "comments" (without quotes)
3. Press ENTER to move to the first instance of the word.
4. Press TAB twice to move past "Sort by" and onto the edit field.

I have found that sometimes everything hasn't loaded and it can't find comments.  In this case, escape the error dialog, press CONTROL+END to jump to the bottom of the page, then up arrow and it's usually actually at the comments - YouTube seems to load the video and then related / suggested videos, then after that the comments, and sometimes it doesn't load the comments until you actually scroll down to the bottom of the page to get to them.

Re: 5TB Portable External USB Hard Drive from Seagate for A cheap Price: What does anyone think?

Robin Frost
 

Hi,

I agree with Evan I've had Seagate drives for a few years in various capacities both desktop AC powered and pocket drives and they've all served me well.

Obviously anything with moving parts can fail at any point and one can always find anecdotal tales for and against any brand at will so it'd seem.

the good thing about the age in which we live is that drive prices have come down and there are also cloud platforms for having backups in more than one place. I've learned that redundancy is my friend.

Good luck with whatever you choose.

Take good care.

Robin

If you drop a drive the drive platters can collide and damage the platters.
Having said that I have dropped a 1Tb Drive and nothing happened, but I woundn't recommend the drop test.

Your recommendation is based on what happened to the drive when it fell.
Havinbg drives fall is just asking for trouble.  I don't see the sense in
making a recommendation on how a drive performs when it is damaged in a way
known to damage drives.

I think I bought something like this from Costco for about $135.


The Drive worked fine until is fell off my computer system, to a
carpeted floor.  Roughly about 4 to 5 ft. of a fall.


Ever since the fall, this Storage Drive has not worked, and I had it
about half full of data.



I would not purcase another one of these affordable drives.

Hi Group,

I see on Amazon, that Seagate has a 5TB external USB Powered Hard
Drive for the incredibly low price of $104.99 USD. What does anyone
think of this product?

Re: a bad email

Thomas N. Chan
 

You either need to wait for it to cache it down or change some of the settings like download headers etc.
  imap and  smtp are both different things.  
imap download mails, smtp send mail out.

To force the download of email, you close your thunderbird, open it again and go to another folder or local folder.
then go back to that folder and see if it redownload again.
if not, compact it.
but before you do all these , make sure you change your server settings on thunderbird how message is downloaded.
