If you look around, you should find 2TB hard drives on sale for somewhere around 80 dollars.  May be less, I don't know.  I found one for about 80 dollars on sale at Staples a number of months ago. 
 
I wouldn't concentrate on how much material you can fit on one drive.  I'd concentrate on what was a reasonable price for a certain volume of storage.  It would bbe much cheaper cumulatively, if you can find a 2 TB drive on sale for about 80 dollars, to buy more of them then fewer 5TB drives for about 170 dollars.

Hi Ann,


Yes, i have been a collector of music and movies since about 1998.  I
really, really mean 40 TB.  The DVD single density with 2 copies of each
has served me well so far, but when I hear about the relatively short
shelf life of same, I get worried.

Ron, what are you using for your 40TB? I have 32TB, been collecting not as long, but pretty close. 2005 or so, music, movies, and TV shows.

I hate to say it, but you might want to just consider minimizing. Buy enough hard drive space to backup the files you absolutely know you can't live without. Of course I consider most of my media files fairly important, but there is some stuff it wouldn't be the end of the world to lose. You can backup the less important files to DVDs with the understanding that there might potentially be some losses.

Re: a question regarding playing DTB cartridges w/ gen 1 victor

Since I've always just downloaded books from the Bard site, I've never actually used one of the NLS cartridges. So is it not possible to copy books from a cartridge to another device if it's connected to a computer? Based on everything I've heard, it sounds as if it mostly operates like a standard USB storage device. Unless there's some kind of copy protection involved?

Re: accessible bike riding bikes with pedals

Dave
 

Hi Josh,

Tandem Bikes can be very expensive, as I have owned three of them in my
Career as a Blind man.

Riding as the Stoker is OK, but not all that much fun. Let's face it,
your job is to pedal and the guy on the back has it just a bit harder
than the person on the front. Which is usually OK until going up a
steep Hill.

For a while, I actually rode a Single bike, and did it by sound.

I was able to do the Steering, the Gear changes, and the Pedalling.

What I needed to do was to have someone ride in front of me, and I could
listen to their bike noises, such aws the chain moving, or the ratchet
sound when coasting.

I never attempted anything as noisy as a Card stuck in the spokes, but
that extra noise would help when going through traffic.

Just not everyone who rides with you wants to ride around with a Playing
Card stuck into the spokes.

And yes, 10 to 15 MPH was fine. But any more than this, the wind
blowing past my ears was noisy enough to blot out the sound of the Bike
in front of me. So coasting down even a small hill was Deadly.

I had to ride early in the morning, or later at night in order to have
much less traffic, which would also blot out the sound of the bike in
front of me.

but, when conditions were good, I could ride for miles, enjoying the
smells and the activity of bike riding.

I would not recommend this single Bike style for just anyone, but you
sound like you might be a good candidate to give it a try.

I did crash a few times, all of them Heart Stopping, as you have no idea
where you are headed, but what you do know is that it's going to Hurt!
And it usually does. Not only you, but the bike.


It is way too easy for your riding partner to forget you can't see and
they start speeding up while going down a hill. This is not good as if
they go too fast, the wind covers up their noise, and if you can't hear
them, it's time to slam on the breaks because you are indeed blind, very
blind, and begging for something very bad to happen.

So if you have a 10 year old riding in front of you, make sure they
understand they can't be swerving all over the road, and Zooming down
hills, because it will get you Killed.

Happy Trails,

Grumpy Dave

P.S. Oh, almost forgot. Pot Holes in the road are Painful! The
person in front of you can steer between two Pot holes that may be close
together. Maybe there is 10 inches between both Pot Holes. Not a
problem for someone that can see them, but for you following from behind.
This is when the person in front has to yell back to you to tell you to
get closer and follow right behind them, or they need to go around them,
which they also need to warn you about.

Pot Holes and the Curbing on the side of the Road are both Painful.




Oh, and you do need to know how to balance on a single bike. Which I
did, since I had learned to ride bikes as a kid when I had sight. have
no idea what to tell you if you don't already know how to balance a
single bike.

Excellent, I'll grab them, just to keep them archived now that I have a new hd.

As a matter of saving space, I was thinking of grabbing that one as well and using it to install professional, but I was unclear on how this install would work inside the PE. I know that you'd previously mentioned that you could use a utility to remove a file from the ISO to do this, but I couldn't recall the name of it.
Anyways, thanks bunches bruddah for the upload, your help is always super appreciated.

Hey all,
I know that here not so long ago on list some downloads for the ISOs for Win7 were posted. I'd had most of the downloads that I wanted so didn't see a need to keep the links or messages. Early last week however, my external decided to crap out, resulting in the loss of the ISO and the backups for 7 that I used when I wanted to restore. I'm in the process of searching down the tool I used to register Windows on my OEM machine and also the drivers for it, but I can't seem to locate a decent place to grab 7pro.

If it'd be possible for someone to post up the link for it or where I might be able to look, I would be most grateful as I'd like to get my backup image recreated.
Thank you bunches and hope everyone is well.
Take care.

Re: Screen Is Up-side-down

Maybe I wasn't clear about the steps.
 
To make sure nothing is selected, you must control spacebar on an object if it is selected. Once this is done, then use the application key, but still do not right click in this case because it will bring up another menu with different options than does the application key.
 
I realize in some, if not most, cases, doing either action, whether something is selected or nothing is selected, will usually bring up the same menu, but this does not.

This needs to be clarified and I need to change or partly correct what I said.  The problem is that when you move using the virtual mouse, however your screen--reader defines it, unless you know how to do things most people don't, you can't find blank places on the desktop.  Usually, when you right click you are right clicking on something such as an icon, a a menu item, a character in a document such as a letter in a word, etc.  Unselecting everything on the desktop and using the context menu key is the same as right clicking a blank place on the desktop with a mouse or virtual mouse. While this can be done using generally unknown commands or procedures, it isn't necessary. 

 

I didn't know why you said not to right click.  I couldn't tell if you were saying don't right click after you use the context menu key or don't right click in general.  Now I know you mean not to right click instead of using the context menu.  But I didn't account for or discuss the question fully in my first message.

If you open the context menu with the context menu key, you are doing the same as right clicking but you are using a keyboard key.  Right clicking very often opens a context menu wherever you right click.  Using the context menu key in the same location does the same thing as right clicking in the same location.

Hi


I saw a product on american printing house for the blind website and I
got an idea and want to run it by the list. The product is called the

mini guide.


Its a handheld electronic sonar device that detects obstacles up to 28
feet away. It uses sound and vibrations for deaf blind people so they know
how far ahead an obstacle is. Now considering that regular bikes are not too
expensive, I wonder if the mini guide or something similar could be rigged
up to be mounted on the handlebars of a normal manual pedal bike, allowing
me to ride bike independently and go more places than I can with just
walking? Plus it would let me ride bike with my sighted 10 year old son. The
problem with the mini guide is, it does not detect overhead objects and
dropoffs like steps or riverbanks or cliffs. So this problem would have to
be solved. Has something like this ever been done, if not, is it doable by
making some sort of modded mini guide device along with using a smart phone
gps and or camera or both?

Hi Michael,
Pasting the Audex description below:
Audex is redefining accessibility for your android devices.
It gives you many smart features such as: Smart Labeling System,
Audible Access etc.
What is Smart Labeling System (SLS)?
Audex includes a Smart Labeling System, Which automaticly labels all
the unlabeled controls throughout your apps and device.
This feature is very useful and improves the accessibility of
unlabeled controls by 90 - 95%.
Audex also provides audible feedback for many events such as:
• Clicking,
• Touching/Hovering,
• Swiping on the screen,
• Opening/closing the windows and menus,
• Scrolling,
• Performing the gestures,
• Starting/Finishing the gestures,
• Long pressing,
• Charger Plugging/Unplugging,
• Screen On/Off etc.
Different-different sounds are associated with every event out there.
This app can be used in conjunction with/without any screen reader such as:
• Google Talkback,
• Shine Plus,
• Samsung Voice Assistant etc.
This app can be very useful for screen reader users.
You can customize the sounds for every event along with toggling them.
App has 6 sound schemes bundled with it, 2 out of them are fully
customizable.
There’s a ‘shared’ sound scheme which allows users to share the sound
schemes with others on demand if required.
Audex is very responsive and very low on memory, so, no need to worry

Hi Josh,
 
You & your son can handle a tandem bike with no problems.  It will take a little practice, but once the both of you get used to each other's habits / tendacies, & talk about prospective situations you will both have a hell of a lot of fun!  Been there & done that, it's gurhrhrhrhrhhrhrhrhhrhrhrhrhhrrhrhhrhr ate!  v'v'v'v'v'v'v'va rhrhrhrhhrhrhrhroom
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

I'll have to wait a few years until he is bigger so he can handle a tandom bike first, then. He's only 10 and a half years old or so now anyways.

You can get a tandem bike to ride with your son and it is safer.

Hi


I saw a product on american printing house for the blind website and I got an idea and want to run it by the list. The product is called the

mini guide.


Its a handheld electronic sonar device that detects obstacles up to 28 feet away. It uses sound and vibrations for deaf blind people so they know how far ahead an obstacle is. Now considering that regular bikes are not too expensive, I wonder if the mini guide or something similar could be rigged up to be mounted on the handlebars of a normal manual pedal bike, allowing me to ride bike independently and go more places than I can with just walking? Plus it would let me ride bike with my sighted 10 year old son. The problem with the mini guide is, it does not detect overhead objects and dropoffs like steps or riverbanks or cliffs. So this problem would have to be solved. Has something like this ever been done, if not, is it doable by making some sort of modded mini guide device along with using a smart phone gps and or camera or both?
