That's very strange. Because, since I can't get gmail to understand not to

put these messages in spam, I have taken to just reading and deleting the

spam messages, like they were in my inbox. I haven't gotten an unsubscribe

I'll add that there is a counter to such terms, which is that they don't take into account that the device may not have been designed to take into account user limitations, so the counter argument blames the designers. You'll see all this in the Wikipedia article I linked to.

Also the 10 represents the letters I and o. One looks similar to a capital I and o looks similar to capital o.

Re: Recording Separate Apps

Others who use Total Recorder may be able to tell you how to do what you want. If you are using a typical recording program, you can't do what you are describing unless you use two sound cards. But I believe Total recorder has the ability to directly encode a radio stream in whatever formats the program can encode. But that is a specialized feature.

You need to work with the web site itself and tell GMail that every message you don't want put in the spam folder is not spam. As I recall, you don't work with the web site.

When you deleted that message is where things went from bad to worse.

Re: Windows Is Gone

Gene
 

Reputable or not, that .doesn't mean the machine doesn't have problems. Machines can develop problems at any time without warning. I would never buy a used computer from a person. First, I doubt a person would give you the kind of return option a store would. I have bought a refurbished computer from a reputable store. it has served me well, but even from the store, there were minor errors in the way the computer was configured. They don't affect anything that matters, but they are present.

.How do I know the person I'm buying a computer from really knows it has no malware on it? If the person formatted the hard drive and installed a completely clean version of Windows, then that shouldn't be a worry, but I'd want to know, beyond a doubt, that that was done. If the person left the existing copy of Windows on the machine, whatever else he removed, how do I know the computer is clean? No malware program knows about all malware. Some malware interferes with antimalware programs.

A computer may develop a hardware problem at any time. Though unlikely, hard drives do fail without warning. A reputable store, in my opinion, where Windows is completely reinstalled before sale, as was done with my machine, is safer.

If I were going to buy a refurbished computer today, I'd buy one from Computers For The Blind, unless I had needs for more power that there computers can't meet.

In your case, reinstalling Windows may be your only reasonable option. I hope the disappearing of Windows, which should never happen on a properly functioning machine unless the user commits grave error, makes me suspicious that there is a serious hardware problem.

I'm not a tech and others may disagree with me but I think it is important to discuss such matters.

Recording Separate Apps

Samuel Wilkins
 

Hello all, I've noticed that in windows settings, you can change the volume of individual apps, and mute ones you don't want to hear.  I was wondering, is it possible to record the audio from certain apps in isolation, for example if you want to record a radio broadcast without your speech synthesizer?  I've tried total recorder but can't get the hang of it.  Thank you.

Re: Removal from the Group

That's very strange. Because, since I can't get gmail to understand not to put these messages in spam, I have taken to just reading and deleting the spam messages, like they were in my inbox. I haven't gotten an unsubscribe message, yet, and I hope I don't. But it seems that, even though he has gotten the unsubscribe message, he is still here. Pam.

when a person or more likely their email provider, marks a message
from any groups.io group as spam it makes the situation worse for all
groups.io groups in that more and more email providers automatically
start marking messages from any groups.io groups as spam. This is why
groups.io will unsubscribe you and send you that message which should
make you aware of the situation.

one can easily avoid being unsubscribed from their groups.io groups by
checking their spam/junk folders daily and marking any messages from
any groups.io groups as not spam and sending itback to the in box
instead. Of course those of you who use email clients may need to do
this on the email provider's page and not just in your email client.

If all people would contact their email providers and let them know
that they subscribed to receive those messages and let them know to
just let one decide for oneself and determine which messages are spam,
things would run a lot smoother.

I hope that clears it up a bit.

Easy Computer Fix, Humor

Mike B
 

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

Radio automation software?

Damien Garwood
 

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: How to get into CMOS with speech access

Smiling?
 

Truly not sure if there's an actual application available that would allow a user access to the chip involved with BIOS information (would be surprised if there wasn't though).

If a person had actual knowledge and understanding of coding for the BIOS, then yes. Because as you are most likely aware of, there are BIOS firmware updates from time to time and if a person truly wanted to mess with this firmware coding, they could. Could they easily screw things up? Obviously, but to each their own right?

You say:
BIOS is a firmware that is embedded on a small memory chip on the system board (commonly referred to as a motherboard).

I'm wondering: is that BIOS chip addressable from an app, possibly written in some language like C, assembler, python, or the like? Back in the Apple 2 days, we used to use the BASIC "peek" and "poke" commands to alter things we wanted to make "better", haha.

What it sounds like you are truly speaking of is not CMOS, but what is
called the BIOS.

The BIOS (Basic Input Output System) is where the boot sequence (boot
order) is determined for the machine and how you the user gets to
this, is different for each various machine.

Just go online and search for your make and BIOS keystroke.
