Re: contacting UPS with no package info

Hi Troy, I recommend calling your local UPS store, and talking to them and they should be able to make some kind of notation. Because before the package comes to you, it goes to a UPS store that is close to you for sorting.

A package was delivered last night, and since we have a fence with a sign on the gate about a dog being on the premises the item was just dropped inside the gate and it happened to be raining. It's just a good thing that the shipping package was plastic so the item wasn't hurt.

You can sign up for a free subscription to UPS My Choice and still receive email notifications about the status of your wshipments.  You can also specify delivery instructions, like deliver to front door, but this is no guarantee that they will be followed by the driver.  Unfortunately, UPS drivers have become lazy slackers who no longer go out of their way to deliver packages to the front door.  If nobody is home, they'll just leave the package outside, where it can be easily stolen.  And even if you are home, many drivers won't bother to knock or ring the doorbell.  They'll just drop the package in front of the door or outside the front gate and bolt off.  According to a recent article in the New York Times, about 20,000 packages aare stolen every day from the various delivery services, which is mind boggling.  If you live in an apartment building, UPS drivers now routinely leave all packages in a central repository like a storage room or with a front desk concierge in the lobby.  They will no longer deliver to your front door, no matter what explicit instructions you provide.  You can complain to their customer service till the cows come home, but you will get nothing but a polite run around.  You can't even speak to a manager or supervisor because you will always get disconnected. And if your package is delivered via UPS Sure Post or the similar Fedex Smart Post, then you have something else to screw up your delivery: the US Postal Service, which makes the actual delivery.  If the package is small enough, it will be delivered to your mailbox by the regular route mail carrier.  But if the package is too large to fit in the mailbox, then a different mail carrier will deliver it and like the UPS driver, leave it outside your door without knocking or in a central location, if you live in an apartment building.  If you don't receive your package. you can count on UPS/Fedex to blame the Postal Service and vice versa.  It's just one big mess. As soon as I receive a tracking number from the delivery service or merchant, I immediately start tracking my package.  On the day it is supposed to be delivered, I refresh the web page with the tracking history every 30 minutes so that I know exactly when my package has been delivered.  Because I live in an apartment building, all packages, regardless of delivery carrier, are left in a storage room in the basement.  If the super isn't around, the packages are left outside the storage room, where anyone can steal them.  So as soon as I receive confirmation that my package has been delivered, I rush downstairs to the basement storage room.  Ifthe the package is not outside, then the driver had the key to the storage room and left it safely inside, and I don't have to worry about it being stolen, and the super will bring it upstairs to my apartment when he gets around to it.

possible problems with gmail

Troy Burnham
 

Hi all,

Normally I don't have any problems subscribing to groups on groups.io using my gmail account, but I'm trying to subscribe to a newsletter for the blind that's also delivered through groups.io, and I tried 3 or 4 times yesterday to subscribe and I never did get the confirmation message I needed to reply to. I even went to gmail.com and didn't find any of the confirmation messages there either, at least not in the inbox on the site or in the all mail section on the site.

Also, I have my gmail account plugged into thunderbird and I usually have no trouble receiving the messages, but I'm in the process of transferring some e-mail that I usually receive through my road runner account over to gmail, and this includes daily announcement e-mails that I receive from a chat site. I realized this morning that I haven't been receiving these daily announcements though and when I went to gmail.com and looked I found at least one of the daily announcements that I didn't receive in the all mail section of gmail.com. Since I am apparently receiving the daily announcements then and they just aren't reaching my inbox in thunderbird does anybody know how I can fix this problem?

If anybody can give me suggestions on either subscribing to the newsletter I mentioned above, or getting the messages that are staying on the gmail site to come into thunderbird I'd appreciate it.

Troy

CD racecar?

Damien Garwood <damien@...>
 

Hi guys,
When I put a certain CD into my drive, it spins up, but doesn't seem to want to settle.
I've experienced disks that struggle to read, and spin up and down. Ordinarily, the disk will spin up and remain at a (more or less) steady speed. This one just spins up, and up, and up...
Back in 2000 or 2001, I experienced a CD shattering inside a drive, and that was without any warning at all. No unreasonably fast spinups, no grinding noises, just a standard spinning hiss and then...Bam! So needless to say I got very shaky when this CD started wanting to sound like the world's fastest racecar (for those musically knowledgeable, the pitch was around A3 by the time I quickly hit the eject button, the fastest I've heard it spin before would be about B2, and that's only when burning a CD).
Has anyone else had an experience like this? If so, did it settle down at some point or did it just keep going until it shattered...Or didn't you risk allowing it to go that far!
Cheers.
Damien.

Re: contacting UPS with no package info

Lisa Belville
 

Hi, Troy.  Probably the simplest thing would be to leave an all-purpose note on your door asking that all delivery people knock.  You could post it when you were expecting a package or make it more permanent.


I used to do this with the FedEx and UPS people here because they would either leave the package outside and not tell me or just not deliver it if they thought no one was home.


Now most of them know me so it's no longer an issue.

Give this a try:
Setting Program Associations:
1. In Windows 7, go to the control panel, and select Default Programs, and

This may be the same in Windows 10, but I don't have that system available
right now.

2. Tab to, set your default programs, and press enter.

3. Tab until you get a list of programs, and then press the letter O, until
you get to Outlook Express.

4. Tab to choose defaults for this program, and press enter.

5. When this dialogue opens check the select all checkbvox, and then tab to
save and press enter.
6. Press alt F4 to close any open windows.
This should correct your problem.

Re: reposting E-mail Question

Gene
 

That isn't a default e-mail setting.  The e-mail program opens links in the default browser.  You can set your browser to use a certain e-mail program if you follow a send mail link on a web page but again, that has nothing to do with what is being complained of. 
 
When a link is followed, the wrong browser opens even though the default browser is the desired one. 
 
This is just the sort of thing System Restore may solve, an odd problem without a known solution.  But if you don't have system restore on or it isn't working properly and you aren't using another reversion program, the best I can suggest is to change your default browser, then change it back to the one you want just in case that solves the problem, you never know.
 
Also, if you don't know about System Restore and problems you may have if you don't know about it, ask here and I'll discuss the matter.

I am having a strange issue with e-mail links within e-mails the last few
weeks.

My default e-mail is a comcast e-mail, and until a few days ago, when I
would open a link within an e-mail to send a message to someone, my
comcast
address would be the e-mail address that replied. I will give an example

the
gmail page and want to use my gmail address to send that e-mail.

I checked my account settings and they are all set as before and my
comcast
address is my default address.

Here is an example, since I know this may be confusing.

I get an e-mail from Susan and within Susan's e-mail, there is an e-mail
address link, such as jenny@myHouse.org.

I want to send an e-mail to Jenny, so I click on her e-mail link, and
instead of opening up a new e-mail from my comcast address to Jenny, it
opens up a gmail page and shows that page as the one associated with my
gmail account.

If I copy and paste the e-mail address to Jenny instead of clicking it
directly, I can then open a new e-mail, paste in her address and it comes
from my comcast address as it should.

What could be making the e-mail links within my e-mail suddenly begin

Winamp should be opened before you open the Windows volume control and a file should be playing.
 
Now tab around the Windows volume control and look for the Winamp setting part of the dialog.  Change that volume, not the entire volume of your computer, as you are evidently doing now.

Hi, all.


I'm using Windows 10, Winamp, and NVDA.


When using Winamp the volume nearly always needs to be adjusted to a
much louder volume than the default setting.  When I do this, the volume
for NVDA automatically gets boosted.  So, if I need to pause the player
to do something else on the PC or when I get a message if focus happens
to be in the Email In box, the volume is incredibly loud.  I can adjust
the volume of NVDA while using Winamp, but I'm looking for a more
permanent solution.


Any ideas?

And that's exactly how mine worked until a few weeks ago. The strange thing is that it only does it when I click on a link within an e-mail to someone's e-mail address. If I start an e-mail from scratch with control N, it acts as it always did.

My default e-mail is a comcast e-mail, and until a few days ago, when I would open a link within an e-mail to send a message to someone, my comcast address would be the e-mail address that replied. I will give an example in a moment.
 
Now when I try to use an e-mail address within an e-mail, it will go to the gmail page and want to use my gmail address to send that e-mail.
 
I checked my account settings and they are all set as before and my comcast address is my default address.
 
Here is an example, since I know this may be confusing.
 
I get an e-mail from Susan and within Susan's e-mail, there is an e-mail address link, such as jenny@....
 
I want to send an e-mail to Jenny, so I click on her e-mail link, and instead of opening up a new e-mail from my comcast address to Jenny, it opens up a gmail page and shows that page as the one associated with my gmail account.
 
If I copy and paste the e-mail address to Jenny instead of clicking it directly, I can then open a new e-mail, paste in her address and it comes from my comcast address as it should.
 
What could be making the e-mail links within my e-mail suddenly begin opening a gmail page with my gmail account?
 
Thanks.

I have both Windows 7 and 10, and no, I haven't changed my browser in months. I am using Chrome.

Hi Vicki,
What version of Windows are you using?
Have you changed your default browser by chance?

I am having a strange issue with e-mail links within e-mails the last few
weeks.

My default e-mail is a comcast e-mail, and until a few days ago, when I
would open a link within an e-mail to send a message to someone, my comcast
address would be the e-mail address that replied. I will give an example in

Now when I try to use an e-mail address within an e-mail, it will go to the
gmail page and want to use my gmail address to send that e-mail.

I checked my account settings and they are all set as before and my comcast
address is my default address.

Here is an example, since I know this may be confusing.

I get an e-mail from Susan and within Susan's e-mail, there is an e-mail
address link, such as jenny@myHouse.org.

I want to send an e-mail to Jenny, so I click on her e-mail link, and
instead of opening up a new e-mail from my comcast address to Jenny, it
opens up a gmail page and shows that page as the one associated with my
gmail account.

If I copy and paste the e-mail address to Jenny instead of clicking it
directly, I can then open a new e-mail, paste in her address and it comes
from my comcast address as it should.

What could be making the e-mail links within my e-mail suddenly begin
opening a gmail page with my gmail account?

Thanks.

Re: Best CD Ripper Recommendation

I just used "AnyBurn" for the first time and it seems pretty friendly.  It does offer a rip button, too; but I haven't tried that part of it.

Since my favorite CDex is full of bloatware it is no longer possible to decline installing--or at least I can't figure out how to decline it--what's a good alternative? Is Exact Audio Copy still worth having? Is it full of bloatware, too?

I run OE as well and I've never run into this issue, but I only have 1 Gmail account.  My Gmail identity is not my main identity, so although I receive email daily with it, so it has slow, but regular activity.  It does work the same with both our Windows 7 & Windows 10 systems

Take care.  Mike.  Sennt from my iBarstool.

Well, not that I know of. It's OE and how could I tell? I have been receiving my GMail in OE for years just fine, but I did add another gmail account, although it was working fine after that as well.

Just a thought, but is your email client's address book / contacts linked to a shared Gmail account with other personal devices?
