Re: KeePass

Just re Norman's comment (about v1 possibly not being in development) - both V1.x and V2.x of the desktop Keepass are still being developed.  They don't necessarily release new versions together, but often one will come out and then a couple of weeks later the other will release an update.

Amazon fire stick Vs. Apple tv

Bill Koppelmann <billmeister@...>
 

Hi Michaelo,
thanks for the information about the Apple tv, I will be getting me a new one, and I thought that someone said that it doesn't come up talking, but if I can just press the upper left button that should work, right?

Re: KeePass

Norman
 

Hi.

There is although i forget what it's called. Search the ios app store for keepass.

make sure the app you get is compatible with .kdbx files.

The hardest part is getting the file on to the phone. You have to use some sort of cloud storage solution like dropbox if i remember correctly. You could try emailing it as well.

Hi Bill,
This is what Apple says about setting up your Apple TV for the first time:

*On Apple TV (4th generation), wait a few seconds, then press the upper-left button (Menu) three times. You should hear "VoiceOver on."
*On Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation), wait a minute. Your Apple TV should ask you to press the lower-right button (Play/Pause) on your remote to turn on VoiceOver.

I have never fooled around with the Apple TV, but it sounds similar to the same requirements as the Amazon Fire TV stick. I am assuming you know how to turn on Voice View on the Fire Stick.

Re: how often do paid updates occur with jaws?

Gary Ray here.

 

Actually, the next paid version of JAWS will be 2018.  VFO is getting their versions in sync with the calendar years.  I heard this in Orlando from Eric of VFO.

 

So, we are currently on JAWS 18 and then there will be a JAWS 2018 which will be the new version.

Hi Keith,

 

VFO / Freedom Scientific / JAWS has 1 upgrade per year that you pay for, but all updates during the year for the current version, & older versions are free.  For example, Jaws 18 was introduced towards the end of last year, so until Jaws 19 comes out towards the end of this year all updates for Jaws 18 & earlier versions are free.  If you buy Software Maintenance Agreements known as, SMA's, every 2 years the cost is $130.00 every 2 years to stay current, but if you fall behind it does get expensive to catch up.  So if you quit upgrading Jaws at version J13, for example, it would cost you several hundred dollars to get up to the current version of Jaws 18.  Your best bet is to call VFO / Freedom Scientific, & talk to them directly.  Their phone number is: 800-444-4443.

Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Re: question about email received texts

Gene
 

Looking at the e-mail online could be more dangerous than doing what I suggested.  If you open an e-mail online and your browser runs scripts, malicious code could run.  If you read e-mail on your computer and read messages as plain text, scripts can't run.  I don't have an IMAP account and I'm not sure just what you are saying.  But unless I knew enough about IMAP accounts to be sure, I wouldn't assume that looking at mail with an e-mail program using an IMAP account is safe unless you have your e-mail program set to view messages in plain text.  I would think scripts can run with IMAP if you view mail as HTML just as with POP3 accounts.

Hi Danny,
Many thanks for the help, I was able to set the speed  the way I wanted
it and the volume as well.
Oh, one other thing, the fire stick talks about other apps you can get
for it, is that really so, and I won't be hurting the Stick by
downloading a few?
Many thanks,
Bill

I never tried setting them up as a Pop3 account, so I may give it a try. Thanks

And as long as Outlook mail supports POP3 which I believe it does, it should still be possible to use it in Windows Live Mail.

True the outlook, Hotmail and live mail will no longer work in WLM but any other emails work okay.

I have some outlook.com email accounts, and as I remember, these accounts are no longer supported in Windows Live Mail. I do have the installer for it already. If I am wrong about this please, someone who uses an outlook.com email account in WLM let me know.

You can use Windows Live Mail.  If you want an installer, one or more list members can give you a download link.  There is no reason to learn nor pay for another program.

Thanks to both of you guys who answered. I am going to check out OE Classic again. I do not remember how much the paid version costs, but I just may give it a try. I have been looking for a good email client since the demise of Windows Live Mail, and I just can't seem to grow to like Outlook.

I have the full fire tv, which is the same as the stick but does not plug
directly into the tv, but I have not tried to load any apps to it just the
ones that came with the device.

Re: question about email received texts

Gene
 

If you read mail as plain text, scripts can't run in messages.  If you read mail as html, they can.  I can't guarantee that your e-mail program doesn't have a bug which might allow scripts to run if you open a malicious message in plain text but in general, doing so is safe.  Or to be fanatical about it, you could save the message as a text file and look at it in notepad.  You don't have to open messages to save them, at least not in the e-mail programs I use.

Subject: [TechTalk] question about email received texts

Hi, when I check my email, I usually get a few emails that are obviously from cell phone texts (area code plus a 7 digit phonenumber.  I do not, off the top of my head, identify any of the numbers. 
 
if I were to open one one of these emails, is there a chance that some type of automatic virus or mal-ware will open, or do viruses and malware that are sent via email or text based in links where I would have to click on a link within the email to trigger the malware or virus?
 
Due  to these phonenumbers being sent from cell phones, it is not like I can simply open the white pages and look up the owners of said phone numbers.
 
I have taken to moving them into a folder within Outlook express until I figure out if I should just delete them without looking at the contents, or if I should hold on to them and see if there is a solution to my problem.
 
Thanks for any ideas or knowledge
 
Keith
