Well, for all those blind cell phone lovers who gave up their land line phones, I just hope for your sake that Hurricane Matthew doesn't strike Florida or the East Coast, as many exsperts predict, or else you may be without phone service for an extended period. That's why giving up your land line phone if you live alone is not such a good idea. If your cell phone service is knocked out, how are you going to get help in an emergency?

I love my land line and hope to always have one. I also have a cell phone, even a smart phone, but I really only use it when I am out and about.

When we had a huge wind storm a couple of years ago, most cell phones had no service, but the good old land line worked just fine.

I also get sick and tired of the way cell phones cut out when you drive under certain wires or get inside of big buildings, or go to some rural town ...

And finally, I teach a classful of ten and eleven year old kids. It used to be if you needed to contact a kid, you could just call their house. But now, the phone may be shopping with the mom, or at scout camp with the dad, or whatever. And not all kids have cell phones.

Yup, I love land lines.

Yeah well good thing we do have cell phones. Land lines put you in a situation of needing to be home to get calls if you don't have a cell.
I would rather just have that one bill anyways and not to mention that fact that I can use my phone to do most things I use to have to rely on a computer for.

Oh, I'm sorry, not the same cell phone. I have had about six phones or
so over that period of time. I just meant that I have had one. I think
that a cell phone is an added aid for a totally blind person out and
about on her own. If I need a taxi, for instance, I don't have to
wonder where a pay phone is or ask someone, I'm in charge, just call.

These cell phone issues are really weird, because as I mentioned in a
previous post many of my friends using cell phones have to be in a
certain part of their house so that I can understand them, and one
such person lives

in Houston and Has AT&T. He does not lose connection, but he sounds
very muffled. My land line is clear as a bell and I never lose
connection with anyone. However, I plan to get a cell phone soon,
just so my family knows where I am when we are traveling, but I shall
try to always keep my land line, but probably not in a bundle.

speaking of iPhones as you did, my cousin doesn't have a landline

Cellphones are pretty good in most places this aint the early 2000's

90's where you had to stress about so many drop calls. I don't think
the average person is trying to listen in to calls you make from your
IPhone about business. They are prety secure anyways. Plus I would
hate having the

extra cost for a phone I would never really use.
So bye bye to standard home phone service. Like someone said it's
mostly done over the net anyways. Also most cell providers now have hd
calling and

that sounds even better than old land liines.

New Macbook Air for Christmas

christopher hallsworth <challsworth2@...>
 

Hello everyone.

Well just thought to let you know that for Christmas I will be treating myself to the new 11 inch Macbook Air with base configuration: 4 GB RAM, 1.6 GHZ processor with turbo boost up to over 2 GHZ, Intel Core i5, 128 GB pcie-based flash storage. Since I have an old, but very much usable, 13 inch Macbook Pro this should suit me fine.

Do you have control over how much the reduction is or is it simply reduced automatically according to the volume of what is playing?

Hi all,

'Auto Ducking' is the automatic reduction of the sound of a given track
when recording multiple tracks at the same time.  For example, if you
started a podcast with music playing, when you added your voice, the
music would automatically reduce in sound so that the sound of your
voice would be loud and clear, set against the music playing in the background.

VFO has so many prices for SMA's and whatever that I'm not going to try
to tell you what the price is.

I think it's supposed to go public by the end of the month.

home this was before they went out, I grabbed her phone and went to the land
line and did the call forwarding from her phone over to the land line. So,
if you are confused, because I'm explaining this terribly to ruin the story,
I had calls going to her phone over to the land line, after I did that, I

My other daughter called her sisters phone, and when I picked up, there was

The MAPI error  its not the full one I take it.

There’s should have something else  after the internal MAPI error.

Whatever it is, try to run that outlook in administrator mode.

After you setup the pop account in it, close it and restart outlook. It should work after. If the error its pointing the services of the profile.

Hi All,

 

I have a 4 tb external USB drive that's nowhere near full, but whenever I try to access it from my laptop it's either slow to respond and let me into the drive originally when I first click on it from windows explorer, or when it's not slow in first accessing it it's slow when I try to open a folder.

 

I've had this drive for a year or more and somewhere I read that it'll work with USB 3.0, and this laptop is 4 or 5 years old now so I thought that might be the problem because I thought I probably don't have USB 3.0 ports, but my computer tech looked the last time I had him do something and he said that I do have USB 3.0.  I also have the drive plugged directly into the laptop using a USB cord, so can anybody think of any reason why the drive is so slow to respond?  I haven't timed it but it takes at least 10 seconds to respond, and btw when the room is quiet I can hear a sound like the drive is coming out of hibernation or something when I try to access it.

 

Oh I'm running windows 7 home here.

I have T-Mobile. The only dropped calls are from others who have their calls dropped! Although, sh130 did not allow me to get a single out till i got off the tol road, suddenly, I could make calls! But, I think if one has to pay 22 dollars to get from Killeen,  to San Antonio, why the heck could their not be a cellular tower on the stupid tol road! Needless to say, I only used this road once and never again. Or should I say, my mom refused to take this road again even if it takes 45 minutes off the trip; 35 will do! Heather

I'm not talking about cellphones from the early 2000s.  I also don't have an iPhone, but I'm talking about cellphones today.  There is a definite difference between the sound of a call on a cellphone, and the sound of a call on a regular phone.  There are little bits of sound that is lost.  But speaking of iPhones as you did, my cousin doesn't have a landline anymore; she has an iPhone, and she will call me, and it will suddenly disconnect us and she will have to call me back.

Cellphones are pretty good in most places this aint the early 2000's or late 90's where you had to stress about so many drop calls. I don't think the average person is trying to listen in to calls you make from your IPhone about business. They are prety secure anyways. Plus I would hate having the extra cost for a phone I would never really use.
So bye bye to standard home phone service. Like someone said it's mostly done over the net anyways. Also most cell providers now have hd calling and that sounds even better than old land liines.

As I am a brand-new customer to T-Mobile, I'll say this much here in Texas I have had one area that I've received a dropped call. And what area were I've had no service whatsoever. But has to be expected with the town being so far out in the country. It is awful Dr. gravelly road. Other than that, I can listen to music without buffering, I can talk on calls without dropping and when the signal is weak, I have access to Wi-Fi calling if I needed. Assuming I can find a unsecure network to join or find what password.

That is why I did not get T-Mobile. I really liked their

I use mine enough to drop. My cousin has a Galaxy and AT&T
in Houston, and I can say and have told her, that she sounds
like she is calling from one of the good old landline
phones, not a cordless one either, but a phone with real
substance.

Here in my bush, TMobile has a horrid case with call drops!
I've been in Walmart with a TMobile customer and the phone
HAS NO SIGNALS!  The individual waits till we get out of the
store before being able to make or receive a call.  If the
call is urgent, my phone is used.  I have service on AT&T
through an MVNO.  

When friends and I drive up the mountains, we barely reach
6,900 feet and TMobile calls drop off.  Not the same case
with my phone.  When I go on a cruise with my troops, I can
still receive and make calls 500 nautical miles away from
U.S. territorial waters!  I'll never be a customer of
TMobile even if the service costs 5 cents a month!

That's because their signaling Houston is so strong it's not even funny. It makes the baby companies look bad. Such as Sprint.

I'm not talking about cellphones from the early 2000s.  I also don't have an iPhone, but I'm talking about cellphones today.  There is a definite difference between the sound of a call on a cellphone, and the sound of a call on a regular phone.  There are little bits of sound that is lost.  But speaking of iPhones as you did, my cousin doesn't have a landline anymore; she has an iPhone, and she will call me, and it will suddenly disconnect us and she will have to call me back.

Cellphones are pretty good in most places this aint the early 2000's or late 90's where you had to stress about so many drop calls. I don't think the average person is trying to listen in to calls you make from your IPhone about business. They are prety secure anyways. Plus I would hate having the extra cost for a phone I would never really use.
So bye bye to standard home phone service. Like someone said it's mostly done over the net anyways. Also most cell providers now have hd calling and that sounds even better than old land liines.

Call forwarding is funny.

This was when my 13 year old began acting all defiant like how she has been

up somewhere else. The story goes she told her sisters not to tell dad where
she went and to call her so she could pick them up.  When my 13 year old got
home this was before they went out, I grabbed her phone and went to the land
line and did the call forwarding from her phone over to the land line. So,
if you are confused, because I'm explaining this terribly to ruin the story,
I had calls going to her phone over to the land line, after I did that, I
put the phone back where she placed it.
My other daughter called her sisters phone, and when I picked up, there was
a pause and I'm assume, confused.

Re: food for thought

Terrilynne Pomeroy <tl1@...>
 

I love my land line and hope to always have one. I also have a cell phone, even a smart phone, but I really only use it when I am out and about.

When we had a huge wind storm a couple of years ago, most cell phones had no service, but the good old land line worked just fine.

I also get sick and tired of the way cell phones cut out when you drive under certain wires or get inside of big buildings, or go to some rural town ...

And finally, I teach a classful of ten and eleven year old kids. It used to be if you needed to contact a kid, you could just call their house. But now, the phone may be shopping with the mom, or at scout camp with the dad, or whatever. And not all kids have cell phones.

Yup, I love land lines.

Yeah well good thing we do have cell phones. Land lines put you in a situation of needing to be home to get calls if you don't have a cell.
I would rather just have that one bill anyways and not to mention that fact that I can use my phone to do most things I use to have to rely on a computer for.

Oh, I'm sorry, not the same cell phone. I have had about six phones or
so over that period of time. I just meant that I have had one. I think
that a cell phone is an added aid for a totally blind person out and
about on her own. If I need a taxi, for instance, I don't have to
wonder where a pay phone is or ask someone, I'm in charge, just call.

These cell phone issues are really weird, because as I mentioned in a

certain part of their house so that I can understand them, and one
such person lives

in Houston and Has AT&T. He does not lose connection, but he sounds
very muffled. My land line is clear as a bell and I never lose
connection with anyone. However, I plan to get a cell phone soon,
just so my family knows where I am when we are traveling, but I shall
try to always keep my land line, but probably not in a bundle.

Re: food for thought

Yeah well good thing we do have cell phones. Land lines put you in a
situation of needing to be home to get calls if you don't have a cell.
I would rather just have that one bill anyways and not to mention that
fact that I can use my phone to do most things I use to have to rely
on a computer for.

Oh, I'm sorry, not the same cell phone. I have had about six phones or so
over that period of time. I just meant that I have had one. I think that a
cell phone is an added aid for a totally blind person out and about on her
own. If I need a taxi, for instance, I don't have to wonder where a pay
phone is or ask someone, I'm in charge, just call.

These cell phone issues are really weird, because as I mentioned in a
previous post many of my friends using cell phones have to be in a certain
part of their house so that I can understand them, and one such person lives

in Houston and Has AT&T. He does not lose connection, but he sounds very
muffled. My land line is clear as a bell and I never lose connection with
anyone. However, I plan to get a cell phone soon, just so my family knows
where I am when we are traveling, but I shall try to always keep my land
line, but probably not in a bundle.

I'm not talking about cellphones from the early 2000s. I also don't have an

iPhone, but I'm talking about cellphones today. There is a definite
difference between the sound of a call on a cellphone, and the sound of a
call on a regular phone. There are little bits of sound that is lost. But

speaking of iPhones as you did, my cousin doesn't have a landline anymore;
she has an iPhone, and she will call me, and it will suddenly disconnect us

and she will have to call me back. Pam.

Cellphones are pretty good in most places this aint the early 2000's or late

90's where you had to stress about so many drop calls. I don't think the
average person is trying to listen in to calls you make from your IPhone
about business. They are prety secure anyways. Plus I would hate having the

extra cost for a phone I would never really use.

That may be a general definition but the use intended here is that the audio you are listening to, such as music, is reduced when your screen-reader starts to speak.

Hi all,

'Auto Ducking' is the automatic reduction of the sound of a given track
when recording multiple tracks at the same time.  For example, if you
started a podcast with music playing, when you added your voice, the
music would automatically reduce in sound so that the sound of your
voice would be loud and clear, set against the music playing in the background.

VFO has so many prices for SMA's and whatever that I'm not going to try
to tell you what the price is.

I think it's supposed to go public by the end of the month.
